4. Basketball Blunder

I waited on the sidelines for my turn to play. With every breath I took my heart went beating faster. I had to pee badly and my stomach was across the court. I kept repeating to myself Win this thing but I just could not get an opening to play. Looking directly across from me I could see the cutest boys in the school checking out the players on the court, making me envious of them. Why won't they just let me play? then I realized it was the coach that wouldn't let me play. I jumped to my feet while holding my bladder and walked over to the coach

"When do I get to play?" I joked

She frowned "Not today, Jaci."

I left her with a soft "Thanks anyway." and ran to the bathroom. as I walked out I was stopped by Ellie shaking her phone in my face with enthusiasm.

"Look at this!" she shrieked

It was a text from her sophomore crush, Jake Catchadorian reading:

Hey, I was wondering if you knew what time lunch starts on B days.

"HE ASKED ME-"

"I read it" I laughed "That's great Ellie."

"Did you read it all?" she said holding her phone up to my face so close I could hardly see it.

"Well I think it starts at 12:10 but I'm not sure."

"Since we have the same lunch time, Ellie, I was wondering if you wanted to go out somewhere."

"Umm I think I can."

"Ellie you are so weird."

"What?" she gasped

"Um I think I can?"  I mocked.

"Hey, I didn't want to be all like 'Why didn't you ask me sooner I have been waiting since 10th grade"

I laughed before replying "That's great." and walked back into the gym to watch my team play. Turns out, I was too late. The game had already ended and the coach looked furious.

"Jaci! we took pictures! where were you?" She screamed

I stuttered "I was just out in the hall-"

"NO excuses." she hissed "Go help Harry clean up the bleachers"

I softly replied "Okay" before I heard her whisper under her breath "Its the least you could do."

 

I walked over to pick garbage and tripped to the ground bruising my ribcage. Shakily I got up to see harry standing in front of my giving me a hand up "Are you okay?"

"I think ill be okay." I coughed. Standing up, I dusted myself off and continued to pick up garbage like nothing happened. Finally when we were done I was greeted by a student rolling around a garbage can.

"Umm Louis? what are you doing here?" I laughed looking at his custodian outfit.

"I may have broken a mirror or three."

"Three mirrors?" I laughed

"Hey" He snapped "It was an accident.

"Loser" I chuckled and walked out to my car, throwing my back in the back seat and buckling my seatbelt to drive home. When it started to rain, I got worried and turned on my window wipers to find a soggy note caught under it. From what I could read, it said

"Meet me in the parking lot of school tonight at 12, I have an idea that-" and it fluttered away in the rain. Curiously I repeated those words over and over in my head until I called Ellie.

"What's up" she said answering her phone with a mouth full of food.

"Hey what are you doing tonight?" I asked

"Well..." she trailed off "I may have made plans with Jake."

"Its okay" I replied before saying goodbye and hanging up the phone

I guess I'm going to find out what that note means by myself.
