8. -8- Game On

The ball lands in Lily's mitt a third time. The batter walks to the dugout,handing the bat to the next batter. She steps up to plate and I nod to her,which is what I usually do to the batters. She smiles and nods in return. I throw the ball and she swings. The sound of the bat hitting the ball is made and a popfly flies across the air towards middle outfield. 
"I got it!" A teammate yells. 
"Hurry the fuck up!" Another teammate yells. 
Lily's standing now,waiting to catch the ball and step on home base. The ball comes flying in our direction and Lily catches it,then hops on base just as the next runner  begins to slide. 
"Out!" The umpire yells. "Switch!" He yells again. 
My team runs to the dug out and I prepare to wait til I'm up to bat. 
Lily wishes me good luck. 
"Thanks!" I say over my shoulder and notice Calum smiling in the crowd. I pick up the metal bat,swing a few times before stepping up to bat. The ball flies toward me. 
"Strike One!" It comes once more. "Strike Two!" 
"Come on,Kayla!" 
"You got this!" 
It flies toward me and I swing as it makes its way toward me. The sound goes and the ball flies somewhere. I don't see because I threw the bat down and burst into a sprint. So do the other three teammates on the bases. We race the the home plate. The announcer calls out "Out of the Park!" And I hit homebase. 
"That's the Game!" The umpire calls. 
My team groups toward me chanting my name,over and over. 
"You did it!" Lily tells me,smiling.  
We line up and so does the other team. High fives all around and good games are said. I pack up my Gatorade and batting gloves and batting helmet in my bag. I make my way to my sisters,brothers,and my parents. I see Michael,Luke,and Calum there,too. 
"You did it,Kayla!" Chelsea exclaims and wraps her arms around me. 
Everyone else does too,even my parents,which is surprising. 
"Pizza! On me!" Dad says and Mom checks her watch. We all look at her. "Oh,come on,Kate. Just this once." Dad says. 
Mom smiles. "Oh alright." She finally says. 
They walk to their cars,everyone else following slowly and me and my siblings grin at each other. 
"He hasn't called her Kate since before they were fighting all the time." Lucas comments. Eric nods,holding a bag of M&M's in his hand. Aerianna nods her head to them in front of us. They're laughing. I look behind us and see the guys talking. I wait for them. Michael puts his arm on my shoulder as we walk. 
"So,how's...you know...." Michael shakes his head. "Your situation?" He says. 
"You mean Shelby?" I ask and Michael nods. 
"Oh,she's hasn't been talking to me because her boyfriend broke up with her." 
"Jake Hiddleman?" Luke pipes up and I freeze at the last name. The guys stop and look at me. 
"What's wrong?" Calum asks and Michael walks over to me and grabs my hand. Calum watches as Michael interlaces his finger with mine. 
"So,we got a message on facebook from a guy named Ashton Irwin." Michael changes the subject. 
"He's my dad's neighbor." I say and we climb into my mom's mini van. 
"He's joining the band." Luke adds. I smile.
