I put on the jersey, and when Chris and Liam saw me, they hooted and hollered. I rolled my eyes, but approached them nevertheless.

"Couldn't get enough of us, could you?" Liam commented with a laugh. I smiled and shrugged.

"You any good?" Chris asked me as the teacher blew her whistle.

"If I could dribble and shoot, I'm sure I would be." I grinned as they laughed at my joke. There's something about making hot guys laugh that just makes you all bubbly on the inside.

Liam and Jeremy jumped for the basketball, but Jeremy was taller so he got it. He passed it to another player on his team who threw it to James. I stood there awkwardly, not knowing what to do. James took a shot and made a basket.

"C'mon Casey, just stand in front of them and wave your hands around!" Liam encouraged as Chris and James faced off. Chris won and the ball fell into my hands. I stared at it curiously just as someone bodied me, sending me flying at the floor.

There was no cliché moment when someone caught me before I fell, no, I just hit the ground with surprising force. My back hit the hard gymnasium floor and my head soon followed. I groaned as white and black spots clouded my vision. I didn't even know who'd body checked me because at the moment I was only concerned with the pounding in my head.

I closed my eyes and someone slapped me 'lightly'. "Ow." I whined, taking one hand off my head to grab my cheek. I opened my eyes to see James, Liam, and Chris all leaning over me.

"What was that for?" I asked, feeling woozy.

"If you have a concussion you shouldn't sleep." Liam said, his head seeming to float away from him.

"Too much cuteness." I giggled at the three boys leaning over me. My dimples made an ap

m off, but he watched me walk up the yard of some random apartment building. Thankfully there was a gate that lead to the backyard so I entered and walked behind the building and shut my eyes as my head pounded and I heard Liam drive off.

Then, a loud bark sounded from beside me. The dog was a grey hound with a rusty chain tying it to the ground. It barked and came at me, the chain barely hanging on. It looked angry that I'd intruded on the property and I knew that even as fast as I was, I wouldn't be able to outrun a greyhound without a huge head start. Being the moron I was, instead of leaving the way I came, I sprinted across the yard and hurdled myself over the fairly low fence just as I heard the chain snap.

If I thought that horse of a dog couldn't jump that fence, boy was I wrong.

I was still sitting on my butt when the dog charged at me, easily scaling the fence and coming at me, its canines revealed.


Got me some fresh cliffhangers ladies (and some gentlemen)
