Courtney's POV: Jake, the other guys and I drove to my house in a hurry since it was a Friday.When we got to my house, the boys ran into the house and hurried down the stairs. I got my bag out of the trunk and headed for the door.
I turned around and asked, "What?"
"You're limping."Jake said.
"No I'm not. You're just paranoid." I said and went into the house.
Everybody has been on my case ever since I hurt my leg when that idiot from Wilson High tackled me. I hurt my leg pretty bad but that was last year and I don't understand why people still worry about it.
Jake closed the door behind him as I put my bag on the laundry room floor. I went downstairs and Jake followed. Before I reached the rest of the guys, I stopped in the middle of the stair case and so did Jake.
"Hey, back there when I was leaving for the locker room. And you kissed me on the cheek, don't do it anymore."I said.
"You know you like it when I show you affection."Jake said.
"That doesn't mean anything. You know we're not together so why do you still act like we are?"I asked.
"Because maybe I still like you."Jake said.
"you don't like me, Jake. You like that I play football and most girls don't so you think I'm perfect. There's more to me than just football."I said and continued down the stairs.
Jake always says he likes me but I know he really doesn't. It ticks me off because all of the guys that go to my school think they're head over heels for me cause I play football. And the think that makes me mad is that guys see with they're eyes. Not their heart.
"Is there any guy out there that sees me for me?"I thought.
"No."a little voice in my head said.
I walked over to the guys and sat on the couch. The reason that all the guys come over to my house is because I have every Play Station game known to man, had just about every Madden game, and had 2 plasmas. I looked at one of the TVs and watched as Adam beat Sam's butt at Madden 2012. I started laughing as I high-fived Adam.
"Take the control Court. I can't take this abuse anymore."Sam said handing me the Xbox controller.
I resumed the game as it just showed what was going on in the game right now. Second half, defence plays, Tennessee has the ball. The game resumed and I started pressing buttons and moving the joystick.
"Evans! This isn't fair!" Adam started saying.
Adam started yelling getting louder each time until I scored a touchdown. I stood up and started dancing and laughing in Adam's face.
"If only you were a boy..."Adam began to say.
"You'd what?"I asked smiling.
"I'd beat your ass!" Adam said acting like he was gonna come at me.
"Yeah right." I said.
The game ended and the guys started another game on the other plasma. The basement wasn't originally my room but I fell in love with it so my dad let me have it. I had a walk in closet, a queen sized bed that was tucked in the corner, a hammock in the opposite corner which was where I usually slept unless I had company over. And then there was a glass, sliding door that led outside. I had wooden floors and my walls were plastered with autographed pictures of famous football players. Adam and I started another round of Madden 2012. After 20 minutes into the game, the phone rang. I paused the game, stood up and answered the phone.
"Hey babe." a smooth voice replied.
"Who's this?" I asked heading for the door.
"Don't you remember? It's Duncan."the voice said.
My mouth dropped and I quickly answered.
"Why're you calling?"I asked.
"Well, I just got bailed out of juvie and I thought I'd call you up."Duncan said.
"How nice. But I'm kinda busy right now."I lied.
"Well if you're busy now, maybe you'd like to join me for a night out tonight?"Duncan asked.
"Um, sure. I guess. Where at?"I asked.
"I'll come and pick you up."he said.
"You remember where I live?"I asked.
"Yeah. You've gotta have at least one stalker." Duncan said.
"Ok, whatever. I'll see you at 8:00."I said.
"Bye Princess."Duncan said and hung up.
I walked back into the basement.
"Who was it?"Jake asked.
"Wrong number."I said.
What am I gonna do? I have to meet up with a guy that I kinda had a close relationship with tonight. Great. I had to act cool. So the guys won't get suspicious.
"Ready for me to kick your butt again Adam?"I asked.
I heard a crash and Sam jumped off his seat.
"Geez Jake." Sam said looking down at his soda soaked shirt.
I tried to hold back a laugh and said, "You can grab a t-shirt in Blake's closet or mine."
Sam looked at me with a scared face and asked, "Is there 'stuff' in there?"
"All the panies and bras you can imagine."I said with a smirk.
"I don't know if you're being serious or not Evans."Sam said ready to attack whatever would come out of my closet as he quickly opened the door.
"Hey, there's no underwear or bras in here. Does that mean you don't where any?" Sam said with a wicked smile.
I threw a pillow at him but it missed. He laughed and decided to go to Blake's closet. I wanted to laugh but all I could really think about was Duncan and tonight.
