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.
