The A Team


"By Matinee I love you! Daddy will be here to pick you up at 3 ok?" I ask kissing my daughters forehead.
"Ok mommy" she says before she runs off to the middle of the field to start football practice. (Soccer)
"She looks so much like you" Niall says as I open the car door.

"Yeah I guess, but she has your eyes, and let's hope she doesn't play like me haha" I laugh as I put the car in reverse. Niall snorts really loud. "Ha yeah, lets pray, not hope Hahaahaha" He cackled.
"Do you remember my first practice annnnd the first time we met?" I ask looking at him out of the corner of my eye"How can I forget, it was the first time I ever saw my soul mate. And broke a bone." He whispered the last part.
"HAY it's not my fault your face was in the way" I laugh
"Oh yea blame it on that" He teased.

"By Matinee I love you! Daddy will be here to pick you up at 3 ok?” I ask kissing my daughters forehead. 
“Ok mommy” she says before she runs off to the middle of the field to start football practice. (Soccer)

“Yeah I guess, but she has your eyes, and let’s hope she doesn’t play like me haha” I laugh as I put the car in reverse. Niall snorts really loud. “Ha yeah, lets pray, not hope Hahaahaha” He cackled.

“Laramie come on!!” Hanna yelled from the door to the locker room door. 
“I’m putting my hair up give me a second” I yell while jogging to her after taking a quite look in the mirror making shore one of my curls wasn’t out of place. 
“Awwwww you look so cute in your little football uniform” she giggles while pinching my cheek.
“You do to” I stay stiffly.
“Laramie calm down its first practice, I know, but there’s no reason to be stressed out” she says reassuringly 
“Hanna oh my gosh Niall and the other seniors are gonna be watching, how is that not supposed to scare me” I asked looking her coldly in the eye. 
“Ohhhh yea Laramie he is gonna be looking you up and down in our little booty shorts and knee high socks, I know why it took you so long now hahaha. Don’t worry I’ll be watching for you to see if he’s looking at you. We should have a word I can scream if he’s looking!!” She says enthusiastically.
”OMG ok Hanna” I said lazily “how bought buffalo, it’s random and nobody will know” 
“Hmmmm that will do, we are gonna get some weird looks haha” she says pushing my shoulder”
“What makes you think He will even look at me?” I ask
“Laramie you have to be the prettiest girl on the team, wait no, you are the prettiest girl on the team. He will be WATCHING you” she says making her point known. 
”Ok girls come over here to the line” the coach says and we all jog over.

“Ok I’m gonna call off your name and your gonna try to kick the ball in the goal ok?” 
“Yes ma’am” we all say together 
“Ok….let’s see who’s up first….Lara..lar…lamamie?” He says uncertain
“It’s Laramie” I say with a nervous smile. I knew my face was red I could feel it. “Oh that’s a pretty name, ok Mrs. Laramie show me what you got!”
I start to walk toward the line and I turn around to look at Hanna who gives me a reassuring smile “WHOO LARAMIE YOU GO GIRL” I knew my face couldn’t get any redder. I walked up to the line and kicked the ball. And by the grace of god it somehow managed to go into the goal “PRAISE THE LORD” I screamed and threw my arms up into the air.

I heard laughter behind me and I turned around to be face to face with Niall and the rest of the senior boys on the team. I could see Hanna behind him over his shoulder mouthing ‘buffalo’. 
“That was pretty good” he said with a wink
“Tha…thanks” I stutter and quickly walk back over to Hanna. He stared at me the whole time I walked over to her and when I turned back around he just smiled at me and turned back to the coach. 
“Oh my gosh” I squeal quietly into Hanna’s ear as I latched onto her arm.
“Laramie he was totally checking you out, like oh my gosh that… That was perfect. Your face couldn’t get any more red but still!!” 
“Hanna I’m gonna die” I say leaning on her.
“Hanna” the coach says all the sudden 
Hanna pushes me off and walks up to the line confidently and kicks the ball straight into the goal. And then she gives the boys a wink and walks back to me, being rewarded with a high five. 
“We might actually have a chance of winning this year, you two are gonna be good I can already tell”
“Thank you, thank you” Hanna says proudly and bows
“Haha I don’t know, I’m not even sure how I did that to be honest” I laugh
“Your good that’s how” Niall says out of no wear. I just smile and whisper a quiet thank you, earning a nudge in the side from Hanna’s elbow.
”Ok guys let’s try this now. Laramie…goalkeeper.” He says pointing toward the goal. I jog over to it and get ready “I’m gonna warn you I have a fear of getting hit so I might go the opposite direction that you want me to go”


“Well if you know which way to go to get ought of the way that means you know which way it’s coming so just try to learn to do the opposite of what you squally do” he says nodding reassuringly

“Ok, I’ll try.” I said.

“Hanna how about you go first see if Laramie is good enough.” He laughs jokingly. 
“Oh please coach, I’ve been waiting to hit her with a ball for ages, every time I’ve tried she dodges it” she laughs a little too loud for my liking.

She kicks the ball and it’s like everything goes in slow motion. But I do just like I said and go the opposite way. “I’m sorry I’m sorry just please give me another try” I ask pleadingly.

“It’s ok Laramie” the coach laughs “It’s called practice for a reason, were here to learn” he says.

“Ok Hanna one more time” bam! She kicks the ball and right when she kicked it she screams “BUFFALO” and somehow I manage to grab it midair while trying to stay calm. I just lied on the ground and didn’t get up, clutching the ball. 
“Are you ok!?!?” An Irish accent said. I opened my eyes to see the prettiest blue eyes I had ever seen. 
“Yea yea, I… I think. I can’t believe I caught it.” I say mesmerized by his eyes
“HAHAHA” he breaks down into the loudest laugh I have ever heard “Well you did” he says while helping me up.

He was at least 9 or 10 inches taller than me. I mean it was understandable he was a senior and I was a freshman. 
Hanna runs up and gives me a loud high five then a hug

“I say we celebrate after this, we go to sonic and I buy you your favorite drink?” She says with a smile

“Sounds great!” I laughed but just happened to notice Niall look over at another player and smile. She pulls me toward the center of the field.

“See I told you” the coach says reassuringly

“Yea haha” I say with a smirk 
“Ok guys practice is… ”

“Buffalo” Hanna whispered.

”Over for the day”

“Buffalo” she whispered again after coach said his fair well. 
“He’s totally been checking you out all practice” she says with her lip rolled up.
“Yea yea yea” I said giggling. “Come on you said you were taking me to sonic” I say pouting. 
“Ok ok, come on pouty pants lets go”
We lay back on the table in the farthest corner of the small seating area past the places where you order. We had our raybans on and were singing at the top of our lungs to Katy Perry and Timbaland. I know for a fact we were not in tune. 
“I’ll never be the same if we ever meet again
Won’t let you get away
This free fall’s got me so
Kiss me all night don’t ever let me go
I’ll never be the same if we ever meet again” 
We were making up little dance moves with our arms while we were laying down just laughing our butts off. 
“Hahaha” we heard laughter behind us. We both instantly froze and turned around. Niall and another player, whose name I think I overheard was Justin, was standing there staring at us with Huge grins on their face and a six pack of beer in Niall’s hand.

“Ironic to find you here” he winks. My cheeks must have gone red because his smile just got wider. “Do you mind if we join you?”
