Hey guys! First of all, thank you so much for opening this story, lol. Because it's the start of the football season, what more to celebrate it than a football fic? I've been searching for suuuch a long time for fics like this, and there were some I loved (which you should read, btw! It's First & Ten, Quarterback Rush, and Sideline Collision are a few of them) but my fingers were seriously itching to type out this story that has been in my head for a really long time.
Secondly, I would like to thank my beta's ChocolateMango, Team Edward Rules All, and PTB's Mod, y'all are the best! Thanks for reading through this first chapter despite the constant grammar errors & misplacement of commas :-D
Without further adieu, the very short first chapter of Field Goal. :-)
"God, these pep rallies are seriously so unnecessary." I rolled my eyes in annoyance.
"Get over it. We kinda have to go. Unless you want to be written up, miss goody two shoes," one of my best friends, Alice, replied. We were currently on our way to the gym where all the students gathered for a pep rally. Today was "Game Day" and everyone wore the school's colors proudly.
"Whatever. If Rosalie wasn't a cheerleader, I would probably hiding in the restroom right now." Rosalie is my other best friend. She's a junior, like Alice and I, but she is already the head cheerleader of the team. It was pretty impressive, but then again, she's been doing it for as long as I can remember.
Alice, Rose, and I have been best friends since we were little kids. Our moms were all friends too, and that was basically how we met each other. Then again, everyone knew everyone here in Forks. We were bound to meet at some point, and I'm very lucky to even be friends with them.
"Seriously though, Bella. You have to come with us tonight! You've never been to any games. At least show your support tonight."
"Actually, I've been to one game and guess what? I slept through it. Waste of time. Sorry Ali, not going to happen."
"Just tonight! I swear. I just don't want you in your room again doing nothing. This is the only day of the week that I don't have ballet, and you're going to be in your PJ's while all of us have fun? It doesn't feel too good, especially since you're my best friend." Alice sighed lightly.
Alice and Rosalie were constantly busy with extra-curricular activities. Alice is a ballerina, and it takes up so much of her time. Fortunately, we had most classes together. Rosalie has a more flexible schedule, only needing to be in practice twice a week. However, when there are games, she has to stay for about an hour after each game.
I missed them, and Alice was playing the sympathy card. She used it on me all the time, and I give in all the time, too. You just can't say no to that face.
"Fine, but just tonight." She clapped and squealed, all signs of sadness erased from her face.
It was going to be a long day.
