The Football BoySequel to THE FOOTBALL GIRL. When a new American Junior Football Champion, Benjamin Rice comes to the school, girls flip for him. Unfortunately, the only one he's interested in? Haruno Sakura! How will Sasuke- her boyfriend- deal with it when Ben wants to join the team?
Meet Benjamin Rice
"OH, GO BACK TO LOOKING IN THE MIRROR OR WHATEVER IT WAS YOU WERE DOING!"
"GET A LIFE!"
"YOU CALLING YOURSELF A MAN?"
"YOU CALLING YOURSELF A WOMAN?"
"WELL, ME EITHER!"
Sasuke and Sakura broke away from their temporary argument to look at Naruto, who had just screamed.
"Guys- practice started an hour ago, and you're STILL fighting."
The whole team was staring at Sakura who had Sasuke in quite severe headlock. She laughed and hastily let go of him.
"If only I had a camera," Naruto snorted as he slyly glanced at the pair. Sasuke was coughing rather conspicuously and blushing at the same time- or it could have been just red from lack of oxygen.
Haruno Sakura was a junior- not just any junior- THE junior dating…er…
CUT TO: Uchiha Sasuke blushing like crazy.
…er…well, you know already.
And Sasuke wasn't just ANY boyfriend.
He was extremely cautious for poor Sakura's well being. If someone so much as tripped her, Sasuke would be after their blood in an instant.
No, he wasn't overly possessive; he was just…well, a little…
…er…well, you know already.
And this is one particular reason why Sasuke never liked Sakura to practice football with a whole team of boys.
He KNEW that SOMEone out there liked Sakura as well…
…but if anyone asked her OUT on a DATE…
Blood would be shed. And then they'd get kicked of the team.
But overly possessive? Nah.
"WOOHOO! PRACTICE IS OVER! O-VER! RAMENRAMENRAMENRAMEN!" Naruto screamed as he threw his practice pads and uniform in a box and bolted for the gate.
"I'd better make sure he doesn't get run over by a bicycle," Sakura sighed, as she snapped off her helmet.
"Uchiha," Neji said, tossing a clipboard aside, "just so you know, I heard that Benjamin Rice is coming."
Sasuke stared at him.
"To this school. He's transferring tomorrow."
It took a few seconds to process of who Benjamin Rice was, but once the information sunk it, Sasuke went beserk.
"WHAT! THAT STUPID, IDIOTIC, PRETTY-BOY WHO CAN'T TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CHICKEN AND A FISH! THAT STUPID MORON WHO MADE A SIX-FIGURE SALARY IN ONE MONTH ALL BECAUSE HE MADE AN APPEARANCE IN A COMMERCIAL! THAT'S SO STUPID!"
"AND NOT ONLY THAT- I HEARD HE DATED 8 GIRLS AT THE SAME TIME! 8 GIRLS! THAT'S COMPLETELY UNCIVIL AND HE'S TRASH- NO HE'S LOWER THAN TRASH!"
"You think he's going to go after Sakura."
"DUH!" Sasuke bellowed. Neji stepped back. "I MEAN, SHE'S LIKE THE ONLY GIRL WITH GREEN EYES AND PINK HAIR! KIND OF HARD TO MISS, NEJI!"
"Uh…he's American," Neji said, trying to help calm Sasuke down. It didn't work.
"WHATEVER! NOW, EVERYONE'S GONNA WANT AN AMERICAN PLAYER ON THIS TEAM, AND IF YOU THINK FOR ONE SECOND, I'M GOING TO ALLOW HIM ON THIS TEAM, YOU'RE WRONG! WROOOOOOOOOOOONG!"
"Hi, I'd like to join the football team, please," said Benjamin Rice.
Sasuke was sitting grumpily in a chair at a table for Football Team tryouts. Sakura was next to him, smiling politely.
"Are you Benjamin Rice?" She asked. Sasuke scowled.
Ben ran a hand through his brown hair and he winked at the pack of 30 fangirls behind him.
"Yes, I am," he said, smoothly. "And what is your name?"
"Haruno Sakura," she said, without a hint of a blush. "I'm the running back position."
Ben glanced at Sasuke, whose eyes looked ready to burn anything that spoke to him.
"Are you the captain?" Ben said to him. Sasuke glared at him, trying to fry a hole in his head.
"Um…yeah, he is," Sakura said, patting Sasuke on the shoulder. Ben blinked.
"Does he talk?"
Sasuke twitched. The NERVE of that little #()(#$)(#!
"Yes," Sakura said, jabbing Sasuke in the ribs, "he usually does, but he seems to be a little…incapable of speech at the moment. Just a minute, Benjamin."
Sakura grabbed her boyfriend by the collar and dragged him away.
"What's wrong?" she hissed. Sasuke folded his arms.
"He's not joining my team."
"Sasuke- you're the captain, but it's the team's team. We belong to no one."
Sasuke narrowed his eyes at Benjamin, who was now flirting with 12 fangirls at a time.
"What's wrong with him? I heard he won some Junior League last year…he'd make a good addition to the team. Sasuke?"
Sakura waved her hand to get his attention. Then, it struck her.
"Are you jealous?" she said, smiling. Sasuke snapped.
"OF THAT LITTLE NERDBAG? NO!"
Sakura folded her arms.
"Oh, really? Then why are you acting like the time Naruto's mother bought him those new set of limited-edition cleats before you did?"
"T-That is COMPLETELY irrelevant, and PLUS that was over something actually VALUABLE. Unlike THIS jerk…"
Sasuke whipped around to find that Benjamin had snuck up on them. Oblivious to the prior insult, he was smiling flirtatiously at Sakura, who was laughing nervously and trying to get away.
"So, can I join?" he said, running his hand through his hair once more. Sasuke wanted to kill him whenever he did that.
"OF COURSE you can," Sakura interjected, jabbing Sasuke in the ribs again. "But tryouts are tomorrow- we'll have to see how well you work with the team, basic skills, and everything, heh, she jabbed Sasuke again, RIGHT, Sasuke?"
The raven-haired boy was glaring at Ben so ferociously that a bird dropped from the sky out of nowhere.
"We'll. See," he said shortly, before turning around and kicking a chair out the way.
"You'll have to um…excuse us for the time being," Sakura said hastily, as she turned to go after him.
Ben grabbed her wrist, flipping her around so that she ran into his broad chest.
"Um…did you need something?"
"Would you like to go out with me? Tomorrow?"
Sakura almost burst out laughing, and she wrenched out his surprisingly tight grasp on her arm.
"Um…well, I'm very flattered, but I'm actually seeing someone right now."
"Mister Scowling-Butthead back there."
"He doesn't deserve you."
"Haha, yes, but I guess that's what makes him so charming…" Sakura trailed off, desperately hoping to get away from him.
"HEY. SAKURA. WE. HAVE. TO. GET. TO. THE. LIBRARY. REMEMBER?"
Sakura looked over her shoulder where Sasuke was visibly standing, a death-like aura radiating all around him for 10 feet. He was clearly after Ben's blood already.
"Oh, right!" Sakura immediately grabbed her bag and ran into the building, leaving Sasuke with Ben.
"What were you doing with her?"
"Nothing at all," Ben said, in a purposely annoying tone of voice.
Sasuke was ripping out his hair in aggravation.
"Look man," Ben said, putting a hand on Sasuke's shoulder. Sasuke looked down to where Ben's STUPID hand was resting on his AWESOME shoulder and glared. Another bird dropped.
"…just because I've already got her, doesn't mean you have to get jealous."
Sasuke wasn't playing around anymore. How he desperately wanted to smash in all of Ben's shiny teeth.
"She's my girlfriend. Get. Away."
"Ah, but she's still up for grabs."
Sasuke blinked, confused.
"Did you HEAR what I just SAID? She's my girlfriend! That automatically makes her TAKEN."
"But she's still up for grabs," Ben blatantly stated.
Sasuke was melting.
"NO, she's NOT!"
"But she is."
"Trouble, Uchiha?" Neji interrupted, slinging a bag over his shoulder.
"Just one," Sasuke said, glaring at Ben, who was clearly satisfied with making Sasuke so mad.
Neji quickly led Sasuke away before he could break something.
Benjamin Rice smiled.
Sakura would be up for grabs, if he could help it.
Hmm…first chapter. What do you think? It premiered on the right date too! May 31! Whoot! Okay, Sasuke is waaaaaaaaaay OOC, but he's cooler like that…haha. Sakura's a little oblivious to Ben hitting on her….oh!
Is Benjamin Rice a real football player! Because if he is, that's NOT the guy I'm talking about…heheheheheh…Just imagine him like Sasuke: Tall, well built, and so hot that they have a fanclub. Yupyupyup…
This first chapter was a little love-triangle-ish, and kind of a major change, but ah, well.
PLEASE REVIEW! I'll try to get the next chapter up soon- because it's SUMMER! But also, my wrist has been hurting a LOT. Might postpone the story…
