•Laf blushed when he sees her in her uniform cause she looks really hot in it.
•She’s covered in dirt by the end of a game. And you know that she had the most fun. She loves sliding to bases.
•What she doesn’t love is when she forgets her sliding shorts and she had bruises all over her legs.
“Mom, there’s no way in fucking hell I’m going to whatever dumb-ass, pretentious banquet Real Madrid is holding for another La Liga League Title,” you declared as you flopped stomach first on top of your box spring mattress that lied even on the tiled floor.
“I think he’s really changed,” your mom rationed, “It’s like I have the old Ziou back.”
You hated when she referred to him as “Ziou.” Furthermore, you knew that the only damn reason “Ziou” was acting so nice and cordial was because he was trying to save his own skin from being exposed as a cheat.
“Find something to wear!” your mom exclaimed cheerfully, “We’re going.”
Your mind worked frantically to evade the impending catastrophe. You hated the fact that your mom could be so naive in these situations. Like really, how were the two of you going to look in comparison to footballers decked out in ostentatious suits from Armani or Hugo Boss, with their stunning model girlfriends by their side, giggling at everything they said and boasting about their Louis Vuitton purses. But then all of a sudden it hit you.
“Mom I couldn’t go even if I wanted to,” you lamented with coy smile hidden by your pillow, “I’m on gas station duty from until 12:00 until 1AM. I’m working a double.”
“Don’t worry about that sweetie,” she said beaming. “I already texted your boss off of your phone and called you in sick.”
You stared at her, trying to comprehend what she had just disclosed to you. “So you’re meaning to tell me, that you went on my phone, the phone I pay for, without my permission, to inform my boss that I was sick and unable to work?” you said angrily in partial disbelief. “Our land lord has sent me some very strongly worded emails warning me that if we’re late on another one of our rent payments, we will be evicted,” you hissed at her getting up and walking towards the opposite side of the room.
She stood there with her shoulders slumped, looking like a hurt puppy. “I just thought, that maybe it would be fun to have some mother-daughter time,” she mumbled. “I do have that interview for that new job opening tomorrow, that ought to help” she suggested in hopes of trying to ease your frustration.
‘Yeah fucking right,’ you thought. The interviewer was going to take one look at her felony drug convictions, and throw her application in the waste basket. A wave of guilt began to creep inside the back of your mind. She was trying her best to forge the relationship you two had, into the type of friendship that every other teenage girl had with her mother. “Fine,” you asserted quietly, “we’ll go.”
It didn’t take long until you had found yourself outside the gates of Av. de Concha Espina, 1, 28036 Madrid. Your mom placed a hand on your knee and babbled, “How cool is it that in the Santiago Bernabeu, they actually have a room for these types of events?”
“Very cool,” you mumbled half-heartedly, gripping the steering wheel harder as you approached the security. Your mom excitedly flashed family-and-friends car pass her beloved “Ziou” had given her for the day.
Entering the venue, everything was just how you expected it to be- meretricious. You couldn’t help but feel a sense of inferiority as all of the WAGs filed in, flashing their cartier bracelets that could pay for half of your college tuition. As soon as you had established that things couldn’t get worse than the current situation, you felt someone creep up behind you, grabbing you by the waist.
“What’s up kid?” Enzo sang, pulling you into a hug. “You look really beautiful tonight, so be sure to stay away from the guys at that table over there,” he warned while gesturing to the table filled with members of Real Madrid Castilla.
Sergio coughed into his drink, as he simultaneously kicked Cristiano underneath the table. Cristiano, annoyed, continued to sip on his glass of Chardonnay.“Guys!” Sergio insisted trying to get both Mateo and Toni’s attention, by coughing yet again into his drink. “I think Enzo has a girlfriend. She’s the brunette with the nice ass to the left of him,” he whispered rather loudly. Toni took one look into Enzo’s direction and choked on his schnapp.
Cristiano, who still had his back turned to the scene, cocked his head at Toni and questioned, “Is she that hot?”
“No,” Toni initially remarked causing Cristiano to raise his eyebrows towards Sergio in a I-told-you-so fashion,“I mean- yes, but we know her.”
Cristiano, much to the dismay of Sergio, finally glanced over in Enzo’s direction after Toni’s remark. “You’re right,” he said incredulously. “I mean, I guess the whole situation makes sense now. But damn, she must really hate her boyfriend’s dad a lot to show up to his own workplace.” “And,” he further reasoned, “she does have a nice ass, so I’d give her a solid 8.8.”
Before Sergio could protest Cristiano’s rating of the girl, Toni gathered himself and made his way over to the bar, avoiding the conversation. Despite being friends with the majority of his teammates, he hated perturbed discussions that would emanate after a single woman walked their way. He hid in the corner of the bar as he heard the unmistakingly joyous voice of Enzo leading you towards the serving station.
“Can we have two club sodas?” Enzo asked the man who you recognized as a regular at your gas station.
“What he means to say,” you interjected giving the the handsome brown eyed man a wink, “Is that may we please have two club sodas, Lucas?”
“Anything for y/n,” Lucas said cheekily giving you a wink in return. As soon as you got the drinks and had finished making small talk with Lucas, Enzo hastily grabbed your elbow and dragged you to the opposite corner of the dining room. Instinctively, Toni attempted to remain discreet while watching both you and Enzo interact, while his mind gravitated towards the initial grab he had made onto your elbow.
“Is there any reason why, Toni Kroos, one of the main players of Real Madrid, a tactical genius on and off the field, one of my heroes, is all of a sudden sending me death glares?” Enzo hissed.
You rolled your eyes at his fanboying. “No idea,” you retorted quietly, taking another sip of your drink.
“Remember in the sixth grade, Enzo recounted, “When I got my first pet hamster, only to have you accidentally kill it by taking him out and losing him? Remember how you adamantly denied it and I was able to recognize that you were obviously lying? Well you’re lying now.”
this feeling i get as a trans person looking back on my childhood, i don’t know
everyone just labeled me as a tom boy in the friend group, my friend group like they were all catty girls who were just, so knowledgeable about makeup, hair, clothes, all of these things i STILL don’t get, i was the one who would always stick up for them and protect them when shit happened because i was the one girl in the group other people were afraid of and wouldn’t mess with despite me being fucking, 5′3 and it was really weird how that went, like i wasn’t bullied as much as i would’ve been (not to say i wasn’t at all) because they were all very much i guess, popular girls, thin and pretty
i was always the least attractive of the group i guess in a traditional sense but i dated the most??? but i dated boys who were sweet and who i really liked and who weren’t considered popular i guess like the people they found attractive generally and i liked them because we had similar interests and they were kind, hell, one of the boys i dated in 8th grade actually (and was my first kiss) was really great about me coming out as trans in HS after we dated and despite being straight (as far as i know) he referred to me as his ex-boyfriend HAHA
i was the only girl in the flag football league at my elementary school IN HISTORY and after i joined, girls all around that school and other schools started joining and i checked in years later and girls are so much more common and i really like that i was able to make that breakthrough for those girls just by being unapologetic about my interests like i loved flag football! it was fun! but also i love art, i just felt uncomfortable being forced into a role and i was too lazy to keep up with all of these roles and just did whatever the hell i wanted
i had a lonely childhood in the aspect i didn’t know any gay people, nobody was out and it took me a while to find a more diverse friend group and even when i did i was still dealing with sexuality AND gender turmoil and figuring out who i am is still comparatively new to me at, like, age 19
