12. Co-Captains

~Amber's POV~

I wake up Thursday morning and get ready as fast as possible. Coach is posting the list today and I really want to know if I made it. After I make sure I have everything for school, I grab my bags and go downstairs for breakfast. I pick out a gronola bar and some juice. I eat quickly and then head out the door to my bus stop. When the bus arrives, I sit down in the very front. I look over my shoulder to see Louis near the back. I smirk to myself. 'This means I'll get to the list before he does.'

The bus pulls up to the school and I'm the first one off. I immediately take off for Coach's office. I get there and no one else is around but the list is posted. I browse the JV names and see that Mikayla and Briley both made it. Then I browse the Varstiy names. I see Briley's name again and assume she'll be playing both ways. Then I spot my name. "Yes." I say out loud. I continue to scan the list to see if Louis made. At the very bottom is his name. 'Darn it. I was hoping he didn't make it.' I turn around to go to my locker and bump into Louis.

"Smart one you are. Sitting in the front so you could get to the list faster." "Thanks. Maybe you should of thought of it." "Ouch Amber. That hurt." "Oh shut up Tomlinson." He just smiles at me and I see him look at the list over my shoulder. "Looks like we both made Varsity. This could be fun." "Really Louis? If I have to work with you its not going to be any fun." "We'll just see about that." He smirks and then starts to walk off. "Oh and congratulations." He says as he continues to walk away.

I don't want to go to my locker yet so I head to Keaton's. Lucky for me he is there. "Hey Keaton." "Oh hey Amber." He says turning around. "So...." "Wait. Did you make the team?" He interrupts. I laugh and then say, "Yep. Varsity but so did Louis." "Oh. Well hopefully it won't be too bad." "Yeah. Will you come with me to my locker? Louis and the boys are probably there." I ask. He nods and we walk to my locker.

Just like I thought, the boys are there. I ignore their conversation as I pull out my books for class and talk with Keaton. We then go and find the girls' at Bree's locker. "Hey guys'." I say. "Hey Amber. Congrats." Briley says. "Thanks. You too. And you Mikayla." "Thanks. Do you realize that you and Louis are the only two freshman who made it on Varsity?" Mikayla asks. "I know but so did Briley. You'll be playing both ways." "Yeah but I probably will play JV most of the time. I mean why would they need me when they have you and Louis?" "Cheer up Briley. I bet you'll get to play a little." Bree says. The warning bell rings and we head off to our first period.

The first few periods go by rather quickly. In Science, the teacher decides to put in a movie. 'Just great. Another opportunity to get hit on by Styles.' Once the lights are out, Harry scoots his chair closer to me and whispers in my ear, "Congratulations Amber. I got you a gift." "And what would that be Styles?" "Me." He says seductively. I hold back a laugh and look at him. "Very funny. Now why would you think I want you?" "C'mon Love. All the girls' want me." "Well why don't you go after them. And don't call me that." I say bitterly. "Because I want you." I laugh quietly and give him a death glare. He backs off and lets me watch the movie. Before too long though, his hands are on me and I have to keep shoving them away. As soon as the bell rings, I dart out of the room and to Keaton's locker. He meets me there and then we head to lunch. The rest of the day goes by without any trouble from the boys'.

After the last bell, I get my books from my locker and then meet up with Briley and Mikayla. We walk to the girls' locker room and get changed for practice. On the way out to the field, we discuss about captain. We set our stuff down and then sit down with the team. A few minutes later, the coaches arrive. "Listen up everyone. As you know, I'm Coach Burke and this is Coach Smith. He'll be coaching the JV team. Before we start I have a few rules to go over." He goes over the rules but isn't done talking yet. "Alright. Now for the captains. Coach Smith and I were talking and it was a tough choice. Never before on my team have we done this but we believe it's for the best. This year there will be co-captains." 'Co-captains?! I can't believe this!' "So your captains for this year are Amber Knight and..." Yes! I'm one of the captains! "...Louis Tomlinson." He says. I go from smiling to looking at Louis and frowning. This can't be happening. "Everyday, you two will lead the team in stretches. Twenty pushes, sit-ups, jumping jacks, line jumps, and toe touches as well as three laps around the field. Go ahead and get started." Coach says.

The team gets up and we make our way to the middle of the field. Louis is walking right beside me. "Congrats Amber. This just got better." He says. "Shut it Tomlinson." I say. I see him smirk and then we begin leading warm-ups. After stretches, we start the actual practice. At the end of practice, Coach has us take a knee. "Good job for the first day everyone. We'll have uniforms and a schedule for everyone tomorrow. You're free to go." I walk over to my stuff with the girls' and we start to head home. I hear footsteps behind us though and look to see Louis following. I groan on the inside as we come to the street where we all part. "See ya guys' tomorrow." I say. They walk away and I continue walking. Before too long, Louis is next to me. We stay quiet the whole time until he turns onto a different street. 'Weird. That was different.'

When I get home, I have dinner and do my homework. Then I get my clothes for practice together and head to bed.

~Louis's POV~

I'm sitting in the back of the bus when Amber gets on and sits in the front. We get to school and she gets off quickly before darting inside. I take my time and head to check out the list. I get there and Amber bumps into me. 

"Smart one you are. Sitting in the front so you could get to the list faster." "Thanks. Maybe you should of thought of it." "Ouch Amber. That hurt." "Oh shut up Tomlinson." I smiles and I look at the list to see my name as well as Amber's. "Looks like we both made Varsity. This could be fun." "Really Louis? If I have to work with you its not going to be any fun." "We'll just see about that." I smirk and start to walk off but then say, "Oh and congratulations."

I go all day thinking about Amber. Her looks, personality, the way she is around me. It just makes me want to get to know her better. I know I'm not her favorite person in the world but I can't help it. One minute I'm nice to her the next teasing. She just does something to me.

School finally ends and it's time for soccer practice. The team and I are sitting down when the coaches arrive. Coach Burke explains a few rules but still has more to say. "Alright. Now for the captains. Coach Smith and I were talking and it was a tough choice. Never before on my team have we done this but we believe it's for the best. This year there will be co-captains." 'Wow. This means I have a chance to be one of them.' "So your captains for this year are Amber Knight and Louis Tomlinson." He finishes. Yes! 'This just got even better. I'll have to work closer to Amber.' I keep smiling even as Amber looks at me and frowns. Coach gives us some instructions and then we begin warm-ups and practice.

After practice, I walk behind Amber and her friends. Eventually, she turns around and sees me. I smile but she just turns back around. Once Briley and Mikayla have left, I walk up next to Amber. Neither one of us say anything but I'm fine with it. Just knowing that she isn't pushing me away assures me that Amber doesn't truly hate me. I turn onto the street towards my house and my thoughts go back to Amber. As I eat dinner and do homework, I can't get her out of my head. I fall asleep thinking about Amber.
