Chapter 3

(Clove's POV)

The end of the school day couldn't have come soon enough.

The girls and I were now in the locker room.

We put our uniforms on and made our way to the soccer field.

During the game, the Sharks' Striker fouled Annie. It was one nasty foul. Annie got a really bad bloody nose, and Johanna had to sub for her for the rest of the game.

"MORRIS! OFF THE FIELD!" The Sharks' couch yelled. We had a rule in high school soccer that if someone fouled another player, they had to stay off the field for the rest of the game.

~Line break~

We won by five points. The girls and I went back to the locker room and changed out of our uniforms and back into our regular clothes, and I went back outside to meet up with Cato.

Cato ran over to me and picked me up bridal style and spun me around. I let out a loud whoop of excitement.

He put me down. "What should we do to celebrate your awesome win?"

"Foxy told me about this new ice cream shop downtown. Do you wanna go there?" I asked him.

He nodded. "Sounds like a plan."

I got in Cato's car, and he drove to the ice cream shop.

"One vanilla ice cream with strawberry syrup and sprinkles, please." I told the worker behind the counter.

She asked me what size I wanted and I said "medium."

Cato ordered the same thing, only he got chocolate syrup.

~Line break~

I was sitting at a table with Cato, contently licking my ice cream. It was a hot day, so some of the ice cream melted all over my nose.

Cato chuckled. "You look cute with ice cream on your nose." He scooped the ice cream off my nose with his finger.

"Two can play at that game." I chuckled. I scooped some ice cream off of my cone with my finger and put it on Cato's nose and scooped it back up again.

As soon as we finished eating our ice cream, it started to pour.

Cato took a step towards me and grabbed my face in his hands and kissed me in the pouring rain.

Man, I love my boyfriend.
