Denying the Truth

When all star softball player, Hope, gets diagnosed with cancer, she denies the truth for as long as she can still function like an average girl. Fidem, a young girl with more courage and optimism then anyone, is a young girl also in the hospital for a brain tumor that just won't go away. As Hope gets to know Fidem, she begins to learn the real meaning behind the word Hope, and the meaning that Faith has in the world.


4. The Scrimmage that started everything

"Fate has a funny way of twisting itself into knots before undoing itself to make a perfect straight line,

but even then, the straights of lines will always have some sort of knot tied in."  - Ruckus12578


     That morning, Hope opened her eyes, and everything spun around her.  Closing them again, she felt nauseated and had a pounding headache.  She could tell that they were already driving again, and that most of her team was already up.  The constant swaying of the bus was not helping her stomach, and she didn't trust her legs to carry her to the bathroom.  Laying there, the headache slowly dulled and the nausea settled.  By that time, Felicity had come back to her bed and was asking if she was okay.  Not having the heart to tell her that she thought she was sick, Hope told her that she had just lost track of time.  

     "We'll be in New Mexico in about 2 hours so get ready to roll my friend."  Hope slowly stood up, and was pleased that she could stand without falling.  Still a bit woozy, she stumbled around the back of the bus until she was dressed and geared up.  She did her morning bathroom routine and went out to the front to join her team.  Pancakes were spread out amongst the table, and she spotted her seat next to Felicity.  Sitting down, she took a huge bite of pancake.  

     "You don't look so good, Hope.  Are you feeling okay?"  Felicity looked at her with a concerned glance.

     "Yeah, Im fine.  Just a bit of a headache.  It's been a rough time, I haven't been feeling too good."  

     "Are you sure you want to go today?  It will be okay if you miss one, we don't want you to collapse."  

     "Yeah, I'm fine."  At that moment, the coached yelled back.

     "Hey everyone!  One hour till we get there!  Get Ready!"  All the girls groaned.  Not because they were sad that they had to go, but the fact of having to hold a pen and write their name so much, as well as the amount of flashes from cameras.  News reporters are always there to.  

     "Common girls!  I have to sign my name too!  Let's have some cheers here!"  None of the girls cheered.  They were too busy rolling their eyes at their coaches attempts to be cool and fit in.  Continuing their discussions about the next signing, they almost didn't realize they had reached the field until the roaring crowd's noise penetrated the buses walls.  

     "Alright let's go guys.  2 states down, 48 more to go!"  Felicity said with as much sarcasm as she could muster.  Still not feeling too well, Hope was the last one off the bus, almost staggering to the tables.  This time, there was a huge carnival set up outside of the field, and about ten times the amount of people that they had in Arizona.  Pushing through her misery, Hope smiled to everyone and started signing everything that the people wanted.  Mobs of people pushed through the crowds to see her.  Police men were there to, holding back too many people from all the players.  

     "Hope, I'm Sophia, and I play softball as well.  My whole team is here, and we would like to know if your team scrimmage against ours?"  A girl about her age came up to her.  Judging by her posture, she was also a catcher.  Holding a huge bag, she carried all of her gear.

     "Uhh, yeah probably.  Come with me."  Leading her to her coach, she introduced her, and her coach was very pleased to meet her.  

     "Of course we can scrimmage, it would be really fun.  Go grab your team and we can start!"  Within 20 minutes, both teams were on the field, and spectators were everywhere to watch the game.  Hope was geared up and took the field with Felicity.  They had decided to go soft on them until they saw how they played.  Going through some new commands and actions, they began the game.  Two minutes in, Hope felt so nauseated she couldn't even see straight.  Five minutes after that, she passed out.
