Playing for the Minors

1….2….3… Finally the elevator hits the fourth floor and stops. Cammi steps out as the door opens. She walks down the hall to the heavy door of Rachel's loft and knocks, hard. No answer. She knocks again. "I know you're home, Rach…" she mutters under her breath. Finally, Rachel opens the door. "Hey Cam," she says, giving no excuse for the wait.

"I need to talk to you," Cammi pushes past the brunette and invites herself into the large apartment, tossing her long, black coat on the hanger as she passes. Rachel slams the door and follows behind Cammi, who waits until they are both seated on the black leather couch to continue talking. "It's about Jers – Violet." She states bluntly. At this Rachel lets out an exasperated sigh and gets off the couch.

"Yeah, everything's always about her, isn't it?" she asks bitterly.

"I have no idea what you're talking about, but you know, she thinks you hate her."

"Well, maybe that's because I do." The brunette's arms are crossed and she is beginning to get her stubborn look in her eyes. Cammi sighs.

"You don't even know her. And that's just the point, you don't know anything about her, so I don't know why you're being such a bitch!"

"I'm not-"

"You are!" Cammi argues. "Tell me what's going on – right now!"

Cammi gets a scowl in response, but she can see that Rachel's about to give in. Rachel sighs and blushes slightly, playing with the bottom of her red top in an unconscious nervous gesture. "Fine. You wanna know what it is? You were flirting with her. Okay?"

"I was – what?" Cammi starts to giggle, but then stops as Rachel glares at her. "Aw, sweetie, no. No, it wasn't like that. I wasn't really…"

"You were," Rachel insists. "You were all like, 'I played for the minors but never went pro' and giving her coy looks and everything." She's pouting now, trying her best to still look angry.

"I can't believe you're jealous over Violet! That's so cute!" The shorter girl steps up to where Rachel is standing. "You know that you're the only girl that I want to be with." The brunette finally smiles, and places her hands protectively around Cammi's hips. Cammi gives a teasing grin. "Besides," she says, pausing to place a kiss on her girlfriend's lips, "just for the record…if I ever do 'go pro', I'm pretty sure you'll be there to witness it."
