Will ran through the halls to get to his class. He woke up late that morning and he didn't even check the time. Well, he had his alarm go off that morning, but he hit the snooze button and ignored it. He slipped quietly into the room where the teacher had his back turned. He walked towards the end of the class where there was an empty seat.
"Nice of you to join us Will." The teacher had his back to the class. Will stopped in his tracks.
"I'm so sorry. I didn't hear my alarm go off this morning." Will quickly found an excuse.
"That seems to be the excuse this week with every student. Grab a seat."
"Yes sir." Will didn't argue with him as he went towards the seat at the end. He managed to get most of the notes that day from his friend who sat next to him. The day went by slow and Will was tired.
The lunch break came by, and he was happy. He made his way to the tree. Instead of seeing all of his friends there, neither of them were there. Will looked around to find them. But he couldn't see any of them. He shrugged his shoulders and walked towards the tree anyway. Will pulled out his lunch along with his homework. He was glad that it wasn't due until Friday which gave him time to finish it off.
He felt a tap on his shoulder, but ignored it. There was another tap on his shoulder. Will lifted his head and turned around. There was no one there. He cleared his throat and went back to his studies. He then felt another tap on his shoulder. Will took out his earphones and stopped working. He felt that same tap on his shoulder. Will turned around and no one was there. He turned back around and found Sonny standing right in front of him laughing his head off.
"You're not funny." Will smiled.
"That's why you're laughing, right?" Sonny couldn't stop laughing. Will threw grass at Sonny as he sat down.
"That was mean."
"Well, that was for ignoring me today." Sonny got comfortable next to Will.
"I am so sorry." Will apologized.
"Sure you are."
"I am. Really. I woke up late today. And last night, um. Never mind." Will didn't want to tell him. Not just yet.
"What about last night?"
"Uh, it's nothing." Will shook his head.
"Okay. But you know I'm here for you if you need to talk about anything."
"Thanks Sonny. I appreciate it."
"You're welcome." Sonny smiled big once again which made Will smile.
"So, where's T and Chad?" Will asked him, changing the subject.
"Well, Chad ditched us for a girl. And T went home. Apparently he's sick."
"Yeah right. First of all, I don't believe Chad. And that is just typical T." Will laughed.
"How's the project going?" Sonny changed the subject.
"That is almost done. I was actually working on something else."
"Sorry I bothered you." Sonny was slowly getting up.
"No. No. It's fine. I needed the distraction. Besides, it's not due until Friday. So I'm good."
"You sure?" Sonny raised his eyebrows.
"Yes. Quit asking me that. So what's new?"
"Since we talked yesterday? Nothing." Sonny laughed.
"Come on. Tell me anything."
"Okay. What would you like to know about me?" Sonny sat across from Will and they both had their legs crossed. They talked about anything and everything. Both laughing at the stupid things that the other was saying.
"Um, Will?" Sonny broke off the conversation.
"What time is it?" Will's laughter died as he checked his watch.
"Holy Shit." Will jumped up.
"I can't believe it." Will laughed.
"What? Tell me." Sonny playfully punched Will.
"It's five o' clock."
"Are you serious?" Sonny grabbed Will's arm to look at the time. Both of them were now laughing.
"Oh my god. So we missed all of our classes?"
"That's what happens when you don't check the time." Will grabbed his bag.
"I was counting on you. Because you're never late. You always have your watch on you."
"Yeah well today wasn't exactly my day." Will got up slowly.
"I'm sorry Will."
"That's okay. I guess we both lost track of time." Will steadied himself against the tree when he almost fell.
"Yeah. I got dizzy there for a second. Oh shit."
"What?" Sonny looked at Will.
"I just remembered that I have football practice today. And in an hour." Will said as he looked at his watch.
"I guess we're both out of it today."
"Tell me about it. Hey, want to watch a practice game? And we are by the football field." Will asked as he pointed towards the field.
"Uh, sure. If it is okay." Sonny was hesitant at first. Not sure if he should.
"Of course it is. I asked you. So it's not a big deal. I mean if you don't want to, then that's fine. I understand." Will was rambling.
"Will." Sonny interrupted his rambling.
"I want to." They walked to the football field where the coach was and a few of the team members. Sonny walked toward the bleachers and sat in an empty seat.
"You remembered you have practice, but you didn't remember you had class?"
"I am so sorry. I really am."
"I'll let you off the hook this time. Next time, don't expect it to happen again."
"Of course." Will walked inside into the changing room.
Will wore a big grin on his face the whole time during the game. He was trying the entire time to impress Sonny. He wasn't sure why he wanted to impress him. But he wanted to.
"Doing better in practice Horton. Keep it up." The coach called out. The practice game lasted for about two hours. Not everyone on the team was doing that well. They had to change up a few of the positions. Finally, after everyone began to get it, they all headed into the changing room. It was a long practice, but it was good.
"You ready?" Will asked when he ran up the bleachers to Sonny.
"Yes. You were awesome by the way." They walked down and started walking home.
"Thanks. I'm actually a pro."
"Sure. If only I believed it."
"You're just jealous that I'm good."
"How would you like to prove that?"
"Oh, so you want a match?" Will laughed.
"I do." Sonny walked along the edge of the sidewalk.
"Oh, you are so on Kiriakis."
"Name the time and place and I'll be there." They walked into the neighborhood and they slowed down.
"Awesome. I'll see you later man." Will walked the opposite direction of Sonny.
