16. Sexist much?

May's POV

Every single eye was on me when I walked into the condensed room. As I guessed, all the people there were men and I instantly felt so out of place. All the men were beefy and scary, instead of nice smiles like the old club, it was confused and amused expressions.

"What do you want pretty lady," asked one of the beefiest guys who was smirking slightly. I cleared my throat and took a deep breath, trying to show that I wasn't that intimidated by them.

"I want a ring and a punching bag. I want to box," I said strongly, looking him dead in the eye. He chuckled and walked closer to me and even though, inside I was panicking, I didn't move. I couldn't show that I was scared otherwise they would take me less seriously than they already were.

"You know pretty lady-" "Stop calling me that," I said defiantly. His eyes flashed with anger but returned back to their normal self. "Fine but I don't think you know what you are doing, this isn't the knitting shop. Here we punch people, we don't accidentally spike people with a needle every so often," he said.

I rolled my eyes at him. Sexist much? "Actually, I don't think you know what you're doing because I have been boxing for 3 years in Ireland and the people I train with could rip your guts out and believe me, I would let them," I said taking a step closer to him.

I was surprised by my own strength and every nerve in my body seemed to disappear. "Let them," he grinned. I smirked," fine, if you don't believe me then give me someone to punch with."

He chuckled and pointed over to some guy in the corner," I'll let you go easy." I rolled my eyes and grabbed my boxing gloves out of my bag, tossing the rest onto the side. The man gaped at my gloves and now it was my turn to smirk.

"They are nice aren't they," I asked, giving him a sly grin. "How did you get those?" he asked as more people came over and were stunned by my gloves. They were the best around and you either had to have serious money or serious skill to get them.

"I won them," I said simply and climbed under the ropes, jogging on the spot as my opponent came closer. He looked strong but nowhere near as much as the guys here or in Ireland. He had scruffy brown hair and even though to the public, he looked muscly, in here with all these boxers, he looked scrawny.

He climbed under the ropes as I pumped myself up. I didn't have a proper warm-up which I bet he did but I didn't mind that much. He would be my warm-up because in no way would I lose to him.

"Ok, boy and... girl. When I say go, you go," the man said. "No shit," I muttered causing my opponent to laugh. The man glared at me but I ignored him and motioned him to carry on.

"Whoever can get the most punches in 5 minutes wins," he said. I nodded and so did my opponent. I punched into the air a few times and my opponent looked as if he was psyching himself up which was quite funny to watch.

"OK, 1... 2.... 3.... GO!"

5 Minutes Later

I was hardly breaking a sweat, this guy was terrible. No wonder the man said that he was easy. I didn't want to go into the whole bragging mode but if they said that I had lost, I knew they would have done it because they just didn't want me to win.

The man blew the whistle and I grinned while my opponent just looked kinda shocked. I looked round the room and each of them had the same expression on their face. They were absolutely gobsmacked that I had won.

"So, ref, who won?" I asked. "You," he grimaced. I couldn't help smiling more but than I remembered my manners and turned to face my opponent. "Well done, you were really good," I smiled softly.

He chuckled," I was good? You are hardly sweating and I was good? I think that's a lie." I laughed with him but not in a bragging way," well I mean it. You were really good and I bet if you weren't surrounded by these sexist people and went to another club, you would probably be amazing." 

He laughed," yeah, thanks. I was thinking about that myself." I smiled and then turned back to face the man. "So, have you learn't your sexist ways or are you still a douche?" I asked. He just smirked at me and pointed to another man.

My eyes almost bulged at the sight of him but I tried to remain un-frightened. "You want me to go against him?" I asked simply. "Yeah, let's see if you are going to be so cocky afterwards," he said. I rolled my eyes at him and turned to face my new opponent.

"Are you coming or not," I asked. He glared at me but grabbed his own gloves and came under the ropes. He jogged around and like my old opponent, he was looking like he was psyching himself up. I shook my head and I looked down at my necklace.

I hadn't taken it off as if I was too afraid to. Ever since I had seen Niall, I had kept it on like it could never come off. I even kept it on in the shower because I was too afraid to lose it.

It was cold and was bouncing off my skin as I jogged on the spot. "You ready?" the man asked. I nodded and so did my opponent. I had to admit, this guy was massive but I couldn't let that get inside my head otherwise I was done for.

I couldn't bring myself down before it even started because I needed to have self-belief. "GO!" the man shouted and instantly my opponent threw a punch at me.

Since I was probably 10 times smaller than him and more nimble, I managed to dodge quickly and punch him in the arm. He was hardly taken back but just smirked at me. He was going to be a challenge.

It carried on for another few minutes. My arms were throbbing since he had punched them very hard but I had managed to stay on my feet and punch him also. I looked down briefly at my necklace, feeling it tingle as it electrified my skin.

Niall. That was all I could think of, Niall.

I looked up and almost instantly, I saw a fist and then everything went black. 

*****

There it is!!!! I really hope you liked it and that it was good!!!! Those people were such douches :( More Niall/Josh/One Direction in the next chapter!!!!!!!!

Has anyone heard about Niall's new girlfriend???? She seems really nice and although I desperately want to be in her position, I am so happy for Niall!! Maybe he has found his princess???

I don't really know because they have been dating for 2 months (apparently) secretly and they don't know much about her but I am sure that she is really nice and stuff!!!

Although, I did feel like crying because I wanted to be her so badly but oh well.

Please fave, like and comment!!!

Love you guys,

Mina xxxxx
