"Bet you a dollar for every girl that has a crush on you." I elbowed Jake as we got ready for recess. "Come on man, yeah i know that maybe one or two girl might like me, but your talking as if the whole school has a thing for me. You are obviously going to lose that bet." He looked at me as if i was crazy. Whats crazy is that he doesn’t know that every girl does have a thing for him. Just the other day another couple of girls were giggling as they saw him passed. "Dude make sure you bring the soccer ball so we can play in the pit." Jake eyed me to the basket of variety of balls Mrs. Jones has collected through 10 years of teaching. As I head towards the basket i look out the window, i see that Jessie has already gotten the soccer pit. Jake and I lost to her and Mel the other day, today is payback. I mean how can we lose to a girl, well we did and we have our pride to get back. "Yo Jake they are already down there, lets go!" I ran to the door entrance where our class was lining up to head downstairs and out for recess. As soon as we got to the pit, we see Jessie leaning her whole weight on to one leg, both hands on hips. "Seemed like just yesterday when i beat both of you guys, wait a minute it was yesterday. Are you ready for another defeat?" she smirked. "Hell no." Jake smile as he ran down the slopes. I ran after him and we set up into our positions. The scores went up until 10, and Jessie and Mel won again. Drenched in sweat Jake took both my shoulders in hand and shook me, "we have to practice!". I knew what he meant, while we were panting for air to reach our lungs, Jessie and Mel look like they stepped out of a sauna and still could play."Alright, we’ll let you guys practice, Melanie has to go inside anyways and i’m going to go head to Becky and Liz. See ya guys later and you better be ready. We won’t go easy on you next time!" she shouted as she turned around to wards a group of four girls engaged in a heavy conversation. " What does she mean she won’t go easy on us next time, i swear she beats us every time!" Jake gasped as she bent down to wipe away the sweat on his forehead with his t-shirt. "Shhhhh" i put my index finger to my lips. "No one has to know, now do they? Now lets just practice, come one lets go". We practiced our soccer skills for about 10 minute when Gary came running to us from near behind the portables. "Hey guys!" his eyes were so wide i though it was gonna fall out." We’re pushing two people to hug each other, its too funny" he pointed back to the group of grade 4 behind one of the portables, and the size of the people were swelling with no time to spare. Jake was heading towards the willow tree placed right on top of the soccer pits. I followed him up.I looked at the group of people, it almost looked like they were jungle animals. "Whoa, its like a jungle out here!” i shouted without control of wanting to say it as loud as i said it. As soon as they got to hugging, Jake started wooting them, i followed and right after my wooting, the girl with the big fluffly curls beside us who was with Jessie wooted too. I looked at her, she seems pretty happy wooting for the big couple, whoever they are. She turned to where Jake and I were standing. She looked at Jake and turned back to the couple and wooted again. I knew it. Another girl likes Jake, even ones with big fluffly hair. Oh the variety of cootie girls he gets to choose from. “Yo Adam, lets go push them apart. Ughh so glued together” Jake ran to the group of people who were now pulling either side of the pair, which i know notice is Luke and Minne. I ran after Jake and began pulling with the crowd. After a few minutes we started to ask people what was happening with Luke and Minne, when suddenly Minnie shouted for Becky, to where the girl that was wooting was. The girl with the big fluffy curly hair looked hurt, and said bye to Becky as she turned and ran towards the soccer pit. Becky ran towards Minnie as Minnie opened her arms for a hug.”Finally, you did that. Now no more telling me how you wish to blah blah blah” Becky exclaimed. Luke looked at Minnie and smiled as he said “Oh how you wished huh?”. Minnie turned beet red. ” Jake the soccer pit is gone now” i shrugged to Jake. Jake turned to see the pit. “Oh man, Jessie’s getting more practice time! Now for sure she’ll beat us tomorrow” Jake kicked the pebbles on the ground. I looked at the soccer pit. The girl was laughing now, at least she isn’t sad anymore. “Lets go to the basketball hoops” I pointed to the basketball rally that was going on. “Yeah, sure” Jake followed me. I turned my head to the soccer pit again, the girl is looking at Jake following behind me. I turn back and head towards the basketball hoops.
