I was walking down the sidewalk after school. I was the new kid with no friends. I grew up in New York, and now i'm living in a tiny town called Siren Wisconsin. I mean, it's not bad, but it's also not the best in the world. I saw a basketball laying in the grass. Nobody was using it, so why not shoot some hoops? I was the lonely kid playing basketball by himself. I know it's pathetic, but then I heard foot steps behind me. I turned around, and I saw a really beautiful girl and what I assume is her boyfriend. My hopes were just stomped on. Then, the girl started talking.
"Hey, I'm Nikki, and this is my brother, Austin." Nikki said.
"Hey, i'm Trevor," atleast I know it's not her boyfriend.
"Hey Trevor, you're in my grade, but I wasn't at school today because I had a dentist appointment. We're in the same class." She said. My heart just did a million back flips.
"I can't believe you play basketball. Around here, only girls play basketball. Guys play football or lacrosse. But whatever."
"Hey, don't hate the game. I used to be the best player at my old school. I can even bet you $30.00 that I can beat you one on one." I said sounding a little cocky.
"Bring it. But just so you know. I'm in seventh grade, and I play high school varsity. So show me what you got. New Boy," she said sounding even more cocky than I did.
"Nikki, you gotta calm down. You're too competitive, you let it get the best of you." Austin told Nikki.
"Fine, but I can and will take you anytime, anywhere. Be prepared for school tomorrow," she said walking away like a boss. Dang, she's got a nice butt. But then again, I wouldn't know what one looked like. I've never had a girlfriend. Breaking me out of my thoughts, Austin was asking me a question.
"Sorry about my sister. She's scary competitive. Hey here's my number. Play some one on one sometime. See what you got. You're pretty good for a seventh grader. Oh, and by the way, I'm in eighth grade, so if you need answers to the homework, i'm the guy." He said giving me his number, and catching up with his sister. I think I just made a best friend.
