It Didn't Work

The whole team was outside the locker rooms together. I was about to turn around when someone tapped my shoulder. I turned, preparing for the worst.

It was the captain of the team, a complete ass named Riley. “Hey, Gail. Where have you been?â€? he asked in a mocking tone.

“I went out of town.â€? I whispered, inching toward the door of the locker room.

“Are you going back or something? ‘Cuz you seem like you’re in a rush.â€?

“Actually I am. I um … have to go.â€? I took two more steps and Riley followed me, bringing three buddies.

“Did you guys hear that?â€? He asked his friends. “Gail’s back in town but not for long.â€?

“Uh huh. Bye.â€? I was about to run but Riley grabbed my waist.

“What? You don’t want to give me a game-winning kiss?â€?

I glared at Riley, getting out of his arms. “No.â€?

“No game-winning anything?â€? he asked.

“No.â€? Riley grabbed me again, picking me up off the ground. His hands squeezed my butt as he pushed me up against the locker rooms’ wall.

“Hey! Get off her!â€? someone yelled.
