"I'm what?" I asked the coach wide
"You and I are both stuck here so far for
the night." I put my head down and sighed.
"Great…" I groaned at him. He came over and
put a hand on my shoulder.

"Why do we have to stay here with them?" I
said looking as all the guys were sitting around laughing at each
"Well you see the storm is supposed to be
really bad so the commander shut down all the roads. Unless you
want to take the chance to walk all the way back home now without
your truck with the chance of 5 feet of snow dropping down on you
as you go." He shrugged.
"Are you kidding me?"
wish I was kidding you Bailey but no we are stuck
"But come on we live on a marine base and
we are stuck in a high school." I slapped my
"They are sending in marines, but they
can't come till after the snow stops." He gave a little
"Damn…" I sighed looking around at the
guys. My eyes landed on Jayden as he sat on a folding chair
staring at me. Another football player was talking to him as he
stared at me. My eyes locked eyes with his from across the room.
I looked down not able to look at him anymore.Coach looked at me
"You and him having troubles?" He asked. I
"I'm not sure really." He put a hand on my
hate to say it Kid but you are going to be here for the next 18
hours. You have been friends for what? How many
"13 years." I said quietly.
"13 years is long to throw away. I care for
you too. Not just for my star quarterback, okay maybe a little,
but I care for you too. You're my players' lucky charm. You come
to all our games. You're my linebacker's sister. You're Bailey. I
don't know what this team would be like if you were gone. So go
kiss and make-up. Or else. This might the worse 18 hours for a
while. Be safe kid." He smirked patting my
"Where are you going Coach?" I asked
putting both on my hands on my hips.
"Oh I'm going to a friend's house across
thought you were staying here with us."
"Sure Bails I'm going to spend my night
with a ton of high schoolers." I pulled a face.
"Come on Coach really? You have spent
nights with them when they went to states."
"Also when they go to football camp every

these dumb asses, I don't want to spend it with them now." I
guess you're right."
usually am. But if these guys are giving you crap, or you want to
get away from them I'm just across the street. Also Assistant
Coach Michel is in my office. He is going to be here with all of
you alright." I nodded. "Remember just a phone call away, even
just a short little walk."
know Coach. Be safe."
will be." He nodded walking out of the locker room. Jayden looked
at me again.
"Bailey can we please talk now." I looked
up at him. He looked so tired. I nodded.
"Alright." He gave me a smile before he
pulled me out of the locker room and into a empty class
"Bailey I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to say
what I did. Sophia she screwed with my head."
don't think that's the only thing she screwed with." Jayden gave
me a pleading look. "Alright I'm sorry, you can
"Thank you. Bailey I am so stupid. I let
her get to my head when I shouldn't even have let her get to me,
let alone my head. She wanted to get at you; I was just good lay
to her. Nothing more. I put 13 years of friend down the drain for
sex. I am the dumbest person in that damn world." He put his head
in his hands.
"You're just a guy Jay. You got a one track
mind I guess." He gave me a twitch for a smile.
"I'm an ass hole Bailey." I gave a
"Yeah you kind of are an ass hole." He gave
me a look. "Hey just speaking the truth here."
"Bailey I'm an idiot. I am sorry. I wish I
never said that to you. I wish I didn't lose my best
"You didn't lose me Jay. I'm right here." I
smiled laying my head on his chest.
did lose you. I'm so sorry." He hugged me tight.
forgive you Jay. Just fuck up again and ah your parents will get
that girl they were hoping for." I felt him
"I'm good; I would like to stay a boy." He
smiled at me. I cuddled closer to him as I shivered from the
cold. "Come I got something for you." Jayden pulled me to his
locker and opened it. "I feel horrible for taking away the hoodie
so I got you a new one." Jay pulled out a thick hoodie from the
locker. He wrapped it around me. I looked down at
"But this is your favorite jacket Jayden."
I looked up at him.
"It's yours now Bailey. You deserve it. Not
me. It's warm also so you'll get good use out of it since it's
freezing here right now." I kissed his cheek.
"Thank you Jayden. I love it." I smiled at
him. I looked down the hallway as a loud popping sound happened
making both of us jump. "What the hell was that?" I asked looking
at Jayden. He pulled me to him.
have no idea." He said holding me. Jayden took my hand as the
sound happened again. I got closer to Jayden so I could feel his
heart beat on my chest. Jay looked down at me as I looked up. I
could feel his warm breath on my face as he started to lean his
face into mine. Suddenly everything goes black…
