Between Softball and Summer.

Summer heat, the annoyance of a sport, and..... a cute guy going after a best friend? Zaria plays softball (the only sport she hates) and has her best friend (Shannon) is staying for the weekend (YAY!) but, after Zaria's dad drags them to softball practice, she sees a guy. A cute guy. And so far.... he seems to have an eye for Shannon..... who already has a boyfriend...


5. Party? What Party?

"Okay, I'll see you soon babe, bye." Shannon said.

I rolled my eyes, damn her and her perfectness! I knew I was jealous, but the good thing was that we were having a girls night and we were going to order a pizza, watch a movie or two, and enjoy some candy and ice cream.

I walked back into my room and saw Shannon typing on her phone, her facial expression confused and somewhat worried.

"You just got off the phone with him!" I laughed. She jumped and looked at me shocked. "Can't get enough of each other, huh?"

She smiled and rolled her eyes. "Not him. Will."

My heart jumped into my throat. "What?"

"Yeah, he invited us to a party." Shannon tells me. She looks at her phone as it lights up. "Do you wanna go or not?

I bite my lip, I know Daddy won't be happy if we went out... but I want to get dressed up and see Will again.

"Yeah, let's go." I say. Shannon helps me pick out an outfit, a crop top, knitted sweater to go over, and a pair of jeans. I start on makeup while she tells Will that we'll be at the party.

"Where is it?" I ask.

"At the park a few blocks over, we can walk." She says.

I nod. That'll be good. I go over there all the time, my daddy won't be that suspicious at least.

I grab my phone, Shannon slips on a jacket and we start walking. She tells me about how much she loves Charlie- her boyfriend- and how excited she is to see him next weekend.

Ahead, I see the lights of the party and can hear the thumping bass. There's not a lot of people there, but enough to make me semi-self cautious of my skinny jeans and gray sweater.

I immediately see Jack, I call his name and he smiles when he finally sees me. He walks over, bumping shoulders with everyone along the way.

"You made it!" He cheers happily.

"Yeah," I say smiling.

Shannon asks him where the drinks are and he points her in a direction, I scan the crowd for Will and sigh when I can't find him.

"So, uh, it's just you and Shannon?" Jack asks after a moment of silence.

"Yeah, her boyfriend is at the beach."

"Doesn't he have school?"

"He lives there."



We stand there and stare at each other, I look for Shannon and find her chatting with Will. How did she find him?

"I'm going to go talk to Shannon." I tell Jack. He nods, then sighs as I walk away.

I can her their conversation, he's asking about her boyfriend. She has the biggest smile and he looks almost hurt.

"It's a shame you already have a boyfriend," he says after a while.

"Why?" She asks. She oblivious, totally oblivious.

"I wanted to ask you out."
