I smiled at him and nodded my head.

"yeah, I guess so".I tuck a strand of my hair behind my ear and lick my lips, I'm ready for this.I love playing tennis, it's a really fun game and I'm sure I could do better than Douglass.I looked up at Kellan to see him watching me intently, our eyes locks for a long moment and I forget the reason why I'm here.

"err, guys! The game?!".Douglass yells and we immediately adverts our gaze.

"well prepare to have your fine ass kicked" .He says and serves first.I'm pretty sure people were watching us now, but I don't care, my focus was more on the game.I hit the ball with my racket and he does the same.

I bring the racket slightly up and back close to my stomach while cocking my elbow back, he gets it and hits it back to me with his racket and I missed it.

"yeah!"He yells, his fist up in the air like he was a kid that just got candy.

"Cocky much?".I say rolling my eyes at him.

"Very much".He served again and this time I try to contact the ball directly infront of my body to remember to keep my elbow still while my forearm and wrist move forward and down.I Graze the bottom of the ball and follow through, he misses it this time and I do the chicken dance.

"Oh yeah, oh yeah yeah".He laughs and grimaces at he at the same time.

"oh my god,please stop that...really you have no idea how horrible you look dancing like that"

"That's just jealously talking!".This time he rolls his eyes.

"C'mon girl, Kick his crazy ass!".I laugh when I see Douglass cheering at me, he just took his shirt off and is rolling it up in the air, Kellan growls at him and shakes his head.

"oh please, that was just a lucky shot" he tosses the ball to me. "serve"

I do so and it goes on and on like that, rounds after rounds, If I miss the ball, Kellan would either do a backflip or a dance which I found both pathetic and adorable, when he misses, I would do my chicken dance and he would laugh so hard, I love hearing his laugh so I made sure I did it everytime.

I was really having fun.

It's the final round and we are both tied.

"Dun Dun Dun!, A Freaking tie!".Douglass yells and I turn to see people gathered watching us, I hadn't noticed before, I was too busy having fun to notice that we were surrounded, I see Rusty, his arms were folded with a frown on his face, I don't care though, I ignore him and collect the ball from Kellan to serve.

"May the force be with you".He says as he hands me the ball and I laugh and nod.

"you too, but just so you know, I'm winning this thing ".I say proudly and the crowd cheers, I had no idea they heared that.

"Hmm bring it on, you call the shot remember".

I nod and served,he hits the ball back at me with his racket, I keep the push stroke gentle, as being to hasty often makes the ball go long, or too high.I keep in mind that my backward push is more of a finesses and "touch" shot.As we advance, the strokes start becoming more aggressive with a variety of spins, It goes on like that till I get tired and miss the shot.The crowd cheers for Kellan and he does a backflip.

"yes! I am the champion I can't be defeated, hahaha".I scoff and roll my eyes at him.

What a baby.

"any worthy opponent? April you can do the walk of shame now".

Oh no I won't.

"give me two more trys " he laughs shakes his head.

"Nope, you had your shot and you failed!"

"Oh C'mon!".I do my cute pout with a puppy dog eye hoping it might work.

"I'm sorry darling, but that cute little face won't work on me, anyone ready to battle?!".Many come closer while some raises up their hand but I wasn't just going to let it go.

I brab the ball, his racket and hat and run away from him with full speed,let's see how he is going to be a master with no ball and racket, I was laughing at the thought till I heard his footstep running after me.

Oh boy.

I try running with extra speed but he being an excellent runner catches upu with me and tackled me without running pressing his shirt covered in his sweat firmly against me.

"So you think you could run off with my ball you loser".

"oh my god! your sweat, eww get off me!"I screamed at him and tried pushing him away, laughing so much my eyes were watering.He kept on laughing and didn't move away.Grabbing my wrist so I couldn't push him off, he held me down on the grass.

Eventually our laughing slowed down as we gazed at eachother.He smiled adoring at me and lowered his forehead down to mine.We breathed softly on eachother for a minute and he moved his hands so our fingers are now interlaced.

"you are so beautiful".He whispers softly and I focused my eye on his full red lips imagining how amazing it would feel pressed against mine.

"I really hope I'm not interrupting anything this time".We both look up to see an angry Rusty.I swallowed and Kellan pulled back and drags my arm to lift me up from the ground.

"hand over".He stretched forth his palms and I stared at him totally confused before it registered in my brain.

"oh here".I give him back what I took from him, he collects it and only nods at me before walking away without a single glance.

I slowly turn to look at Rusty thinking he would yell but surprisingly he wraps his arms around my waist and starts to kiss my neck.

ugh! Kellan was right

I can't keep up with this!.
