‘’We have only one goal today—show those freaking piss of shit what makes a winner!’’ Aaron shouted nodding while all member of the team were in a group hug. ‘’Fire wolf, we ‘ve got this.’’
We raised our hand and cheered ourselves. Steve was sweaty and not his usual enthusiastic self on the court so I went toward him to tap his shoulder.
‘’Hey,’’ I said and turning my neck to see who else came in, I sighted Coach Diaz walk into the room. ‘’You okay?’’
He gulped, rubbing his palms together. ‘’Yeah, I guess.’’
I was going to talk more before Diaz called for our attention to tell us something we didn’t al
MimiSmiling down at Emerald and Devin and watching them converse even though they couldn’t see me, my eyes and his made contact and I grabbed rushing out of the court as he ran toward me.‘’Mimi, wait!’’ he begged and I put a hand on my forehead to disguise from the people now watching the scene.Why had I come there with Emerald in the first place or most importantly, why the heck was I running away like I was the one in the wrong?Savoring in a breath, I halted to compose myself before turning back. I had no reason to run because I had seen a piece of shit I had thought was better than the o
Emerald‘’Have you thought about what you want to do after college?’’ Flora asked and I squinted, holding my phone to my ear tightly and wondering why she sounded more like my mom than someone her age.‘’Yes, of course. It’s the reason I am studying. Probably going to end up at some radio station or work at a cable news where all we talk about is the president all day long,’’ I said and we both laughed. I closed and opened my eyes and realized that I really didn’t know where I was going to end up. Staring at the walls of the apartment me and Mimi shared, I was filled with a certain feeling of joy. My future wasn’t planned out. Hell, I didn’t even know what I was doing at college if not waking up every day and moving among with the pack of people
DevinI was stuck between calling her phone or just knocking on her door as I stood in front of her apartment block, clueless. Emerald was yet to text me even though we had set the time and date for our meeting together, which by the way I wasn’t sure where she wanted to go. Sitting at a restaurant had become a little out of fashion for me and I wanted try something new like go on a boat ski.I laughed, shaking my head together with the thoughts that occupied it. A movie would be better for a calm evening. Brushing my hair back with my hands, I licked my lips before knocking on the door. Every time I saw her, my heart was happier and I could envision her opening the door with a giant smile on her face, looking radiant with her glowing skin, a beautiful face I could wake up seeing every day and not get tired of.
Emerald‘’Oh, stop please,’’ I said and giggled as he nibbled on my ear in the back seat of my car. Our official dinner date had somehow led to devouring looks and hungry bodies as we couldn’t keep it together. Moving away from his touch, he held my neck and planted a soft kiss on my lips.He pulled away, smiling at me. ‘’You are beautiful.’’There was how the words came out of his mouth that made it sound so genuine. My hands cupped his cheek and stared at his eyes in wonder. I loved him and with the way he looked at me, it kind of showed he knew that so well too. It was so hard sitting at the table for long and having to pretend what we were really interested in—dessert. Giving him a se
EmeraldMini had never sounded so serious her whole life and I on the other hand felt like a leech. So I made my mind up to take her advice and tell him about everything. And that started with me heading over to his house to pick him up. It didn't sound nice to the ears, but I guess it was just the feeling of guilt working with me.
EmeraldGetting to the door of my apartment, I whirled around and smiled at him. ‘’You really didn’t have to come all the way since I was basically the one at fault and wanted to make time for it.’’He scoffed humorously. ‘’I am not a petty guy, Emerald. Especially with things I love.’’I swallowed hard and turned to knock on the door.‘’I was thinking if you’d like to go out sometime this weekend?’’ he asked and I squinted at the door. “A bonfire?’’‘’Well that would be great. Been into that for a while now. Sunday’s a little busy for me, leave it at Saturday?’’<
EmeraldAnd there was the smile I missed mixed with the soothing feeling of being at a happy place. He was my happy place and probably felt the same way, beaming at me as I rushed toward him. He threw his arms open to embrace me and carried me laughing like a high school kid.
