Thoughts of Her

Declan

I stand there watching her, I cannot for the life of me figure this girl out. It’s maddening. I don’t know what will get her to want me, I’ve never had this problem before. Most women can’t get enough of me. What am I doing wrong?
“So that’s the new girl huh?” My cousin Donny asks.

He walks up to me and stands by my stand. Cody and Andy follow not far behind him. We all watch her as she stands there talking with Coach Morris and that awful kid Stuart. She keeps looking down at her feet, she doesn’t want it to be obvious, but I see she’s watching me out of the corner of her eye. Not being able to help myself I grin his way.

She shakes her head, makes her eye roll apparent, stomps her little foot, and looks back to Coach. Making me and the guys laugh out right. Within moments her and Stuart are walking away, out the door, and down the hall. My eyes don’t leave her until she’s completely out of my view.

“Hmm…that’s interesting.” Donny is standing there with one hand on his hip the other rubbing his chin. He’s studying me with those green eyes of his.

“What is so interesting?” My eyes make their way to him.

He lifts his hands, in a surrender gesture. “Nothing really, I’m just intrigued by this girl already.” He gives me a similar smile to mine, winks at me, and runs back over to the basketball court.

“What the fuck does he mean by that?” Not sure why, because I usually don’t give a shit if the guys want to fuck the same girl I do, but for some unknown reason the fact that she’s on my cousins’ radar really pisses me off.

My hands are so tight into fists they are turning white. I hadn’t even realized my feet moving until Cody places a hand on my shoulder, drawing me back to the spot I was just standing in. “Calm down man, he was just thinking how odd your behavior is over this girl.” I look to his hand, and he must see the murder in my eyes, because he slowly removes it.

Placing his hands in his pockets he says, “gotta say I agree with him man, you’re acting strange. It’s like you really like this girl or something.” His eyes are squinting, and he’s studying me with the same intensity as my cousin just was.

“Don’t be ridiculous. She just seems like she’d be a spitfire in bed.” I shrug the notion off.

I couldn’t really like the new girl, could I? I mean sure she’s only the most gorgeous woman I’ve ever seen in my life, and her little spouts of temper turn me on. I get hard as a rock just looking at her, which has never happened a day in my life. But really liking someone? That’s not possible for me. Us King’s don’t like or love any woman. We aren’t capable of it. The family comes first. That is hammered into our minds from birth.

“Dude you all right there?” The sound of Andy’s voice breaks me out of the thoughts swimming around in my head.

“Yeah, I’m fine. Think I’m still a little hungover from last night is all.” I shake my head, clearing the cobwebs, and make my way to the big group along the court.

The guys soon join us, and we break into teams. Dribbling the ball, the sound helps soothe me. Each bounce calms the thoughts in my head. This is just what I need. To play some ball with the boys and get my mind off the new girl that’s plaguing my thoughts. Easier said then done, since my eyes keep making their way to the door she just walked out of.
