the beginning of this is from the view the guys on the bench as
they watched the uncool kids kick ass
……………….. "Oh come on Miranda what's happening?" Jackson moaned
turning from the bench to where his sister was standing with Mr.
Sorenson and Coach Jones. Miranda shrugged and flashed a grin at
her brother happy for once she'd got the upper hand over him.
"God you suck sometimes" he sighed turning back around as the
principal began to talk on the stage.
"Well someone's obviously going to be singing" Niko looked at
"I hope to god it's not that band that won the talent show last
year because the dude couldn't sing for anything" Jackson
"Hey Mir" Dimitri beckoned she left the side of Mr. Sorenson and
walked over to him, blushing a little as he was sat next to
Xander. "Okay so you can't tell him what's happening but come on"
her winked at her.
"Dimitri Alexi Carpov" she sighed dramatically "I can't you're
all just going to have to watch…" she looked to the stage and
leant on both Dimitri's shoulder and Xanders "Them" she chuckled
nodding forward before patting their pads and stepping back as
the guys started to play 'The Boy's Are Back In Town' I stepped
out from behind Kerion as he played the drums and walked to the
front of the stage. Xander had his Gaqtorade half way to his
mouth and stopped his mouth hanging open as I bounced in the
"Isn't that…?" Jackson stuttered
"She didn't look like that singing the anthem" Dimitri scratched
his head. "Damn"
"Oh you have to love F.M.B.'s" Nico whistled
"Dude really" Xander looked at him "She's my…" he caught himself
all the guys looked at him "She's new" he closed his eyes and
shook his head.
"Fair game then" Nico rubbed his hand over his chin "about time I
found someone new to play with"
"So help me I'll…" Xander spat at him
"Nico quit" Dimitri interrupted.
"Fairs fair bro you have a girl" Nico laughed. The music becoming
heavier made all of them look back at the stage all of them
falling silent and watching.
"Okay so I think we can safely say that girl has walked into this
school and Kicked ass" Dimitri shook his head tilting it a little
as I turned round with my back to everyone and walked to the back
of the stage as the guys played "and with an ass that good" he
groaned. Xander got up and walked behind the bench and caught
hold of Miranda pulling her aside.
"Okay you're her friend right?" he swallowed hard
"Yeah" Miranda looked at him "You want me to ask her out for
you?" she looked down
"What… Ew… Hell no… not my type" he added quickly "Did she really
have to wear what she's wearing?"
"Er… it's a show" Miranda pulled a face "and she looks amazing"
Xander hung his head and sighed. He turned and walked back to his
place on the bench as the song ended.
"So what did you think?" Reba ran over to Jackson as he was about
to put on his helmet.
'Oh they rocked" he smiled nodding his head
"Wisconsin is hot as hell" Nico laughed running past both of them
"I hope to god she owns those boots"
"Dude" Dimitri and Xander yelled at him at the same time.
"Hey I was talking about our dancing not her" Reba stomped her
foot like a two year old.
"What dance… Oh right yeah" Jackson caught himself "you were
really good baby" he smiled at her
"What the dance team performed" Dimitri chuckled Reba glared at
"I'll let Abby know you didn't even look at her" She put her
hands on her hips
"Whatever" Dimitri shrugged…………………..
………………….The Bleachers and the rest of the team erupted as Alfie
took my one hand and Pete took my other with Kerion on the end as
we all took a bow. I couldn't wipe the smile off of my face as
we stepped down and the stage crew took over dismantling the
stage so the second half of the game could start. Some of the
dance team ran over and hugged us.
"Oh that was the best ever" a girl with a black bob beamed at me
"You… you're amazing" she hugged me
"Thanks I'm sorry I don't know your name and from where we were
we couldn't really see you guys dancing" I apologized.
"I'm Abby and I think it was videoed" She walked backwards as
Reba ran over to her and whispered something to her glaring at me
the entire time. "so screw him" Abby shook her head she looked
back at me "thanks again"
"Hey Chris" Pete yelled from the door to the band room I hurried
as fast as the heels and the grass would allow pulling the door
closed behind me.
"Oh YOU BLEW THEM ALL AWAY" Mr. Sorenson cheered his eyes wet
with tears Miranda hugged me as the guys were all high fiving
each other "I think people will think twice before knocking the
band and theatre kids again" the door opened and the principal
walked in Alfie draped his arm round me.
"Well that was some show…" he smiled "I've had the local new
station asking if they could interview you guys"
'All we did was what was asked" I shrugged.
"Christine I know what this school is like for clicks and I'm
trying to do something about it and thanks to the staff I have
for coming up with ideas like this to help break down the
barriers" he held out his hands. "I've lined up for them to talk
to you guys right after the game is done along with some of the
players in the team"
"No problem Larry" Mr. Sorenson buzzed "they'll be there smiling
"Good now I'd better get out to watch the rest of the game" he
smiled and looked round the room at all of the band kids "You all
take crap and still try your best and your best is beginning to
show up some of the others in this school" he walked out as the
room erupted into cheering and shouting again. I looked at
'You want to come out and watch the end of the game"
"Hell yeah" she nodded "Guys you coming because I think your
hotness stakes just went through the roof from some of the
comments I over heard from the cheer leaders and the dance team"
"Finally" Pete laughed holding open the door for us "Ladies" we
stepped out into the sticky night air and walked to the field as
Jackson scored a touchdown……………………
