The Attempted Escape

I sat in the fifth row of the stands at the football game. I had convinced myself that I wasn’t going to see anyone I knew so there I was. I smiled to myself when the team came out, running and screaming.

Even though I’m a girl, I’m in love with football. I don’t know what I like about it. Maybe it’s the speed of the game or just the excitement but whenever there’s a game, I’ll be there.

This game was different though. I could feel it and I figured out it was true when Matt and Van were running and screaming with the rest of the team. So that’s where that feeling came from.

I quickly headed toward the back, getting out of sight. Maybe I could just watch the game and then slip out without either of them seeing me.

The game went pretty well. We won 36 to 32. It was one of those close, close games but those are always the best. After the game, I went through the girls’ locker room to escape seeing Matt and Van. It didn’t work out too well.
