"Did you hear?" Gemma asked me on the way to practice. The game was in two days and I pushed myself more than I had ever before. I even took it upon myself to practice before school and during lunch.

"What now?" I asked, ready to hear another ridiculous rumour come from her mouth.

"Dakota has a girlfriend."


"He didn't tell you? I thought you would've known."

"No he didn't tell me." I said through gritted teeth.

I stormed through the gym and into the change rooms, putting on my gear in a hurry. It's been a while since him and I have had time to hang out but why wasn't I the first person to know he had a girlfriend. I am his best friend after all and I have to hear it from Gemma?

"Hey." Dakota said as I was putting on my jersey. I glanced at him from the corner of my eye, ignoring him, not entirely sure as to why I was so angry with him. I grabbed my helmet and shoved my way past, walking out of the locker room.

"You all know the drill." Coach blew his whistle, not bothering to go on his usual tirade of conspiracy theories about the upcoming opponents.

"Why are you so quiet?" Dakota asked, pretending to practice with me.

"Why didn't you tell me you had a girlfriend?" I asked not looking at him. I don't know what I'd do if I did.

"I have to tell you everything?"

I scoffed and walked away from him, leaving practice without my duffel bag.

"De Angelis, where are you going?" Coach yelled after me. I continued to walk, wanting to get away from Dakota, from him, from the world.

I climbed in through my bedroom window, I didn't want to deal with my mom asking me a million questions of why I wasn't at practice. I didn't bother changing out of my uniform as I threw myself on my bed.

Dakota has a girlfriend.

I chuckled at myself. Why am I so mad about it? I shouldn't be, after all we are only friends. Nothing more. Nothing less.

I heard a tap at the window, expecting it to be Dakota dema

wed around her face and for a moment she looked like a completely different person in my drunk state.

"You're pretty hot, Jane."

"So I've been told." She gave me a half smile before I leaned in to kiss her. Before I could even come close, she immediately shoved my face away.

"Ew, no." She chuckled.

"What? Is it the vomit? Because I rinsed."

"Whatever is going on between you and Dakota, keep me out of it because I'm not going to be one of your toys to make him jealous."

"What? We aren't-"

"Go home, Luka." Jane smiled and walked back downstairs. I was stiff for a moment trying to get a grip on what just happened.

I began walking home, feeling the lowest I had ever felt. Not because Jane rejected me, or because I threw up. Matter of fact I don't know why I was feeling so low.

Usually I'd have Dakota on my back, blacked out and unconscious leaving a party. A part of me misses it, but the other part is thankful I don't have to haul his ass half way across town. But maybe I like having to do that.

I laid down in bed with my head spinning, feeling like it was going to spin right off. I chugged a glass of water and closed my eyes. Tomorrow is going to be one hell of a hangover and I only pray it goes away on game day.
