I don't own the sandlot boys.
I heard a rattling in my closet. Being the 21st century girl I was I turned on my kindle fire. Using it as a flash light I went to explore my closet. Opening the door 9 boys fell out. I recognized them instantly as the sandlot boys. "What the hell are you doing in my closet?" I asked not very calmly.
"Yeah yeah what are we doing here?" Yeah, yeah asked.
"I don't know but you better explain yourselves" I said. I was probably a bitch because it was well midnight.
"We are um this is Scotty Smalls, Bertram ..." I cut Benny off.
"I know I know that's Michel Palledorous aka Squints. Alan something you call him yeah yeah. Hamilton Porter Ham as you call him. That's Kenny, Timmy and Tommy. You're Benny Rodriguez. I know I've seen the movie. "I said.
"Wait what year is it?" Scotty asked.
"2012 the world hasn't ended yet." I said.
"You're pulling our legs. It's 1962." Kenny objected.
"I guess my invention works. Scotty said under his breath.
"You know us who are you?" Timmy asked.
"Yeah who are you?" Tommy repeated.
"I'm Kayla and my first day of school is tomorrow so if you interrupt my sleep again I'll interrupt your breathing." I replied.
"Do you have baseball diamonds anywhere?" Benny asked.
"Benny it's midnight! There's no baseball at midnight. Well at least not for normal people." I snapped
"That's Benny for ya, always playing baseball. I'm thinking though that if it came to us or ending the game we'd be dead." Squints said.
"I wouldn't kill you guys! Just you wouldn't let me." Benny said.
"Silly Benny you think baseball is a democracy. It's really much more of a dictatorship." I said patting him on the head.
"You're weird." Ham said.
"And what of it? At least I don't go by a lunch meat for my name." I said.
"She got you there man, "Squints said cleaning his glasses.
"I've got worse. I could probably give you guys culture shock though, "I said.
"What are you talking about?" Timmy asked.
"Yeah what ya talking about?" Tommy repeated.
"Nerd has become a fashion statement, girls play sports, thank act nine for that. Our president is African- American. We have portable phones that if you lose that's more dramatic than losing virginity. Oh and the Internet was invented," I said. The boys were shocked. "I also start dance stuff and skating tomorrow so I need my sleep." I said shooing them out of my room.
The next morning I threw on some jeans a peasant blouse and my red high top chucks. I pulled my hair up into a simple pony tail. I went to school via RTD. I didn't know what to do with the boys but I figured I would figure that out after school. Attendance was being called. Ten of the names had been changed nobody had any idea that it had happened. The sandlot boys had fallowed me. Their names along with another boy who I couldn't quite place got on the list.
"Wait you're telling me we all got in to your smart kid magnet school?" Benny asked.
"Yeah yeah and what was that other kid's name?" Yeah, yeah asked smacking his gum.
"It started with a P. I wasn't really paying attention to it." I said. We were walking along a green belt. I had promised to show Benny a baseball diamond.
"Gee that sure helps," Ham scoffed.
"Whatever, here it is. I'm going to be studying like I should be doing at home." I said sitting in the bleachers.
"Well, well, well I didn't think I'd see you here Rodriguez," a kid wearing a little league uniform said.
"Shut up Philips." Benny said. Philips that was the other name.
"You watch it. After all it sure must be easier when you play with rejects. "Philips said. I slammed my text book shut.
"Where exactly is your team smart one?" I asked rhetorically.
"Who are you to say anything? You're a girl! "Phillips said.
I pulled a softball from my pocket. "I can make you swallow your pride using this," I said.
"That's a softball soft and squishy. For weak girls like you, "Philips said. Oh that kid had nerve. I threw the ball at him it hit his shoulder.
"Is it?"I rhetorically asked.
"Ow! Anyway this is a baseball what men play with." He continued pulling a baseball out of his uniform.
"Then why are you holding it?"I scoffed. It was new ground for Philips to be insulted by a girl. The boys were stunned and Philips was taken aback.
"Dang that girl got a mouth." Kenny said.
"Whatever I don't want to study with your primitive insults being tossed around so don't get into one of your stupid little wars." I said sitting back down to study.
"You're confusing," Scotty said.
"No I'm a girl." I said. Who happens to be on her period. I hate periods, so messy and they throw my whole body off. It still freaks me out that I'm bleeding for like a week and its 'normal ', stupid puberty. They played for a while. "Hey do you guys think you can get back to my house? I gotta run so I can get to class on time, "I asked.
"Yeah we can make it but what class are you going to?"Benny said running the bases.
"Ballet," I answered, putting my stuff back in my denim messenger bag. A car horn honked. I turned to see my softball team captain Angie there with Sophie there in their convertible 1971 Camarro.
"Come on slow poke!"Angie screamed at me.
"Angie!"Her mother scolded.
"Oh didn't mean to interrupt time with your bf!"Sophie said.
"Gotta run," I said inspecting the team for who was closest to me. Ham was closest to me *sigh*. I ran over to the car and hopped over the side. We drove off to the studio I guess it's called. The studio was another clique's turf, like the field was ours. The stage girls were led by Teri aka Barbie. We had our issues being the softball girls with the stage girls. We love dirt they love dirt too only its called makeup.
"Angie what are you doing here? I never thought you'd be anywhere that a normal girl would be." Teri said very coldly.
"And I thought you'd have enough sense to be a normal girl," Angie shoot right back.
"Girls we have more important things to do," Isabella said pulling Teri back a little.
"Isie you're such a goody good!" Teri said pushing her off.
"Ladies we don't have issues do we?" A stern looking gray haired Woman said.
"No Mrs. Victoria," The girls said in sync. This was our headmistress I learned later that day.
