"On your track, Get set, Ready, Go!".We athletes immediately run full speed to get to the finish line.Douglass and I have been practicing this run and we are on fun speed like it's a piece of cake.Our Coach blows his whistle when we reached the finish line.

"Great job Douglass, Henry, Derek and you too Kellan but it seems like you're slacking." he says and I'm confused as hell.

"what? but Coach, I was the first".

"Yes but Douglass nearly overtook you, normally no one gets in your way, that's why you're slacking kid."he pats me on the shoulder like I'm ten and calls for the next batch.

"you hear that mitch, I'm ten seconds to kicking your bloody ass."Douglass says playfully and I laugh on the outside but on the inside I'm pretty confused,I really should be more focused next time but for the past two days now, I can't stop thinking about April, how we left things and what she thinks about me now.Believe me I wanted to keep my damn mouth shut but I just couldn't, I wanted her to know she deserved better than Rusty, that she deserved to be happy and not to be tied down to that arrogant asshole.

I really don't regret a thing I said, because I knew I was right but then she goes on and tells me what she has been , with her parents, for a second I wanted to just flat out tell her the truth, that whatever she thought she went through is nothing compared to what I am still going through in life,but I don't, the last thing I need was her self pity.

She really had no idea what she was saying when she said my life was all unicorns and rainbow.

Indeed it was.

It's been two days now and we haven't spoken or said anything to eachother like what happened on Saturday never happened, I'm kind of okay and not okay with it, Okay in the sense that I am slacking in my run like Coach puts it and don't need her if I want to really focus on getting better.Not Okay because, before we left things badly lastnight, she was really fun to talk to and I miss her.

yeah I do

"err I think she's talking to you Kellan".Douglass says breaking through my thought.I look up to see a busty blonde revealing too much cleavage that I'm not sure it's allowed here, two other girls were behind her.

"hey Kellan".The busty one says as she bats her eyelashes at me.

"uh, hey, I'm sorry do I know you?"

"Ofcourse you don't silly, you might have probably heard about me though".I raise an eyebrow clearly confused and turned to Douglass,he had an incredulous look on him face.

"so anyways, the girls and I are kind of having a thing and we thought we should invite you".

"I'm sorry, I can't go".

"you haven't even heard when it's happening". one of the girls behind her says with a pout.

"I'm sorry but I don't care when because I'm too busy to".The busty one rolls her eyes at me.

"what are you, gay?"She say and I'm surprised to were this was going the last thing I needed was another argument from any girl.

"Even if I were gay I wouldn't go".I turned my attention back to Douglass, his arms were folded like he was enjoying this.

"C'mon Doug, I heard table tennis practice was for anyone".

"Shit!, you're effing kidding me?!".With that we walked away from the girls who were boiling in anger already.


***** April

"That guy is so impossible to talk too!., I don't know who the hell he thinks he is!".Jenna said pacing around, I'm guessing her cleavage showcase didn't work on him.I try to stifle my laugh at the thought.

"He is a proud....ugh!, I hate him".

"whoa calm down Jenna".Sarah said.Well she is so wrong, Kellan is the most humble guy I know, that's one the things I like about him.we were fine till I opened by big mouth to ruin the whole thing.I stand and walked away from the yelling girl, to take a stroll around the gymnasium.

One would think after our fight , I would have had the courage to break up with Rusty but I just can't, I've come too far in gymnastics to risk it all, he might be right but it's not as easy as he says".

I see him at the table tennis stand, playing tennis with Douglass, he is laughing but Douglass isn't, he is growling at Kellan probably because he is kicking his ass and I just watch the game, I watch him more though.

"Dude!, what the hell?!".Douglass says.

"what, it's not my fault you don't know how to play".Kellan says trying to stifle his laugh, he looks so adorable with cute hat.

"I Know this Shit!, we've barely started and you're killing me already,my reputation is as stake here".

"Okay, give your best shot".They play two more rounds,both hitting the ball nicely with the bat till Douglass misses it.

"Dang it!".Douglass jams his fist on the table, Kellan shakes his head at him and looks around.

"Now pray tell me, who is worthy of competing with the master".Douglass rolls his eyes at him and my legs surprised me by walking up to them.

"I am".I say, Kellan smile fades away as surprise flickered his face.We stare at eachother for a moment and I get this tingling feeling in my stomach just looking at those beautiful blue eyes.

"oh seriously, a freaking girl!"Douglass says breaking our stare and I begin to feel stupid for coming here.

"err, I mean, If you don't mind or I could ..not".Kellan stares at me intently for a moment before shaking his head.

"No, it's fine uhh, Doug give her your bat and do the walk of shame".

"Screw you dude!"I smile soflty at him as he hands me the bat and walks to the otherside".

"I must say, you must be pretty brave to want to compete with the master".
