The Boy Who Had a Dream
I decided to go talk to David, so I went;
'' Hey, how are you? '' I asked in an uncertan, shaky voice that he didn't seem to take notice of.
'' Just not myself! '' David replied. His voice was no louder than a soft whisper.
We both remained silent until he all of a sudden asked me:
'' Was I right to give in to him? '' His voice was still a low whisper.
I troubled answering his question, but told myself I should tell him the truth by followin my instincts who brought me to this answer:
'' Well, we are taught to never back down no matter what! ''
'' Thanks for being honest Ever! '' He said those words as he was reaching for the door.
God, I was so falling for this guy! I mean who could not? He's freaking hot! Especially his black eyes.
I became much more serious when David's enemy showed up.
I never understood why they hate each other because I find them both really kind, at least towards me!
Here's the thing; a lot of people like David because of his hotness, they are called the red devils!
The rest of the people like Diego because he is the world's best football coach in the history.
Though I did forget to mention an important point;
Diego doesn't hate David, it is David who hates Diego for unknown reasons that must be tragic ( I believe ).
'' Hey, something up? I mean you seem troubled! '' Somehow knowing that David hates his own coach made me feel guilty.
'' I'm sorry, with all the championships going on... it makes me pretty nervous ... ''
By the way, one thing you should know about me is that I HATE lying, not to mention how bad I deal with it, I just hate it!
'' I could leave you a couple minutes on the bench if you'd like! '' I could hear in his voice that he doubted me.
'' If you don't mind, I really wouldn't refuse those few minutes! '' We both laughed few seconds.
'' So, I heard you and David are hanging out, how is it going? '' I really stopped the laughing!
Oh god, I can't lie anymore not to Diego, he's like a second father to me!
How could he ask me such a question? Was he trying to make me hate him? He wouldn't! He loves me!
'' David isn't a bad person you know, he sometimes just loses control, which in this case makes him a bad person! ''
I was proud of what I had just said, and Diego almost seemed pleased about it;
'' Fair enough, I guess! Just tell him he should never give up, it drives me crazy! '' His voice was still calm.
I found myself standing in the changing room all by myself. I didn't move. I just stood there.
Suddenly the door flew open; some guys came in and laughed when they saw me! their laughter made me want to kill them!
'' Hello there, are we disturbing you? You might want to change with us? '' The tallest boy had spoken.
'' Excuse me, I'd rather die, but don't worry hell is waiting for you on the field, dick! '' I spat at him.
The boys had quit laughing like idiots! Before another could reply I took off slamming the door shut behind me.
I completely forgot we were Saturday! David had a match to play against _______
Before my mind could reach out for an answer the I walked right through David;
'' Hey, what are you doing here, you're not even allowed in here, how'd you get in here? '' He sounded really surprised.
'' I saw the guys you're gonna play agaisnt, good luck! You know I rarely get mad, right? '' I asked urgently.
David looked really confused, it was like I had just spoken foreign language!
'' Yeah I know you rarely get mad but you're not making any sense! I mean ... '' I interrupted him:
'' They threatnened me because I was in their dressing room without knowing where I was! '' I spoke at the speed of thunder
'' You know what, let's just forget what just happened! '' It didn't seem to bother him.
'' All I'm trying to tell you is that you should be real careful when you play because they drive you crazy to a certan level! ''
David was slowly understanding what I really meant to tell him.
'' I promise I'll do my best to not lose myself! '' he tried to reassure me but I was really frightned!
'' Would you do me a favor? '' I knew he'd answer a 'yes' as he did without hesitating as he did.
'' Could you come talk to Diego with me? '' I wasn't sure he would keep his 'yes' as an answer!
He sighed looking at me. He wondered why but didn't seem bothered enough to spit the words that wouldn't come out!
'' Actually I'm gonna let you deal with this one! '' He knows I am mad but he just keeps making the situation worse!
'' Did you listen to a word I said? I have to warn him! '' I seriously needed to calm down before ...
Too late: I had slapped by boyfriend right in the face! He was too astonished to react, so he stared!
I saw some blood pouring out of his beautiful lips. What was wrong with me? I didn't know how to react either!
'' What was that for? '' He finally broke the silence. I tried not to burst into tears but it was a hard task.
'' I'm sorry... I didn't mean to hurt you... you know I wouldn't 'cause I love you! '' My voice was trembling.
David just stared at me in horror. He looked disgusted.
'' Come on let's get out of here! '' he talked as if nothing had happened!
We went outside and saw the two teams trainning for the match.
There was David's team and on the other side was the guys that had threatned me. I tried to stay calm.
David and I went on the bench where Diego was sitting,
'' You're late David, I don't suppose I want to know why? '' Diego also was in a bad mood!
Before answering, David looked at me as if he wanted to know my answer first, but I didn't react.
'' I ran into a fight... '' That was his answer! He would lie to protect him! I wanted to thank him.
'' Sometimes I wonder if you could at least live a day without fighting! '' He sounded angry.
'' Sometimes I wonder if you could at least live a day without always wanting more than you already have! ''
David spat at him than went to train with the rest of his team. Diego was frustrated.
No one had ever spoken to him that way! This was surely not my day!
'' You tell your boyfriend to show me some respect or I swear his off my team! '' He really was furious.
'' Why don't you tell him yourself? '' I didn't want to get involved in this.
'' Fair enough I guess I'll tell him! '' He had a smile of triumph on his pale face.
The referee had blown in his whisle to announce the start of the game! The nightmare had begun!
To start off with the two captain team had to shake hands, but David refused!
Players tried to force them to do so but it was no use, it was too late to reason them!
The coaches talked to the referee telling it was a waste of time. The referee took notice and decided to start off the game.
' This is all my fault ' I thought. I shouldn't have spoke to David about what happened. It was too late.
After fifteen minutes of game they were losing 1 - 0 !
At halftime, Diego shouted on his players who looked desperate;
'' What the hell was that? '' he yelled waiting for an anwser. Everyone kept silent till he yelled even louder;
'' You better go out there and show me what you've got! '' I had never seen Diego that angry towards his player!
They were back on the field, all looked tired.
Damen passed the ball to David who kicked the ball as hard as he could; goal!
The Red Devils celebrated their magnificent goal by dancing on AI SE EU TE PEGO!
'' Cut it off ! '' Diego yelled.
The Red Devils stopped their dance. I could hear them asking questions between themselves.
Except David, he remained silent staring at Diego who was also watching him carefully.
I felt sick! How could this be happening, what was going on? No one really knew!
They kept playing, I realized that the players were fighting. I saw a player on the ground that was seriously injured.
I saw who it was; the boy who had insulted be in the dressing room!
The referee had a yellow card in his hand. Who did he show it to?
He had shown it to David! oh no! Please ... I begged silently. Diego had warned him!
I turned towards Diego to see what his reaction would be like; he surprised every one of us!
'' Keep it up guys. '' I was also surprised but had my attention on David.
I needed to calm him before he gets sent off as last time. I looked at him and shouted his name.
He turned to the direction he had heard the voice and followed it.
'' David, stay calm okay? '' I said not looking at him. I felt so guilty that I was afraid to face him!
'' You were right, they keep threatning us all!'' My hand reached his face to whipe out the sweat that was on his face.
'' Shh, just let it go, okay, let it go. '' I could hear his heart beat, I tried to relax.
'' What's up with him? '' David asked ignoring what I had just told him.
I turned to see who he was talking about, and saw he meant to talk about Diego.
'' I don't know, you tell me! '' I anwsered. Diego was also looking in our direction.
'' Tell me when you'll decide to play! '' he shouted in a mocking voice.
'' Tell me when you'll decide to coach! '' he shouted back mimicking his coach!
Diego said nothing. He sat back on the bench while David went back on the field. I sighed desperately.
The opponent team was winning 5 over 1. David was slowly losing control again! He was giving in again!
'' Come on Dave, we need you, don't back down! '' Damen shouted to encourage him.
It was no use, he didn't believe it was possible, neither did I, neither did Diego, neither did Damen or the team!
The match was finally over, the blue opponents, Highland, had won 6 over 1! A complete disaster.
They all shook hands except for David who was sitting on the grass field crying.
The opponent coach went to him to shake hands but David just kept crying refusing to take it! The coach desperately sighed.
'' You're a great player! Probably one of the best my team has faced! You can fight it back you know, all you have to do is ... ''
He got interrupted by Diego's threat that concerned them both;
'' Leave my player alone pig! David, what the hell was that, are you stupid or what? You're making my team lose! ''
Highland's ciach looked at David who stared at the grass. He really felt sorry for the kid. He badly wanted to help him!
'' Are even listening to me or are you death son? '' Diego yelled. I reached out to them. The opponent's coach really seemed nice.
'' I am not your son! '' he said proudly as he got up taking the Highland's coach's hand.
The three of us went to the cafeteria to have a drink. We tried to comfort David after the horrible defeat he had faced.
'' You should'nt blame yourself! By the way my name is Michael. '' He added looking at me.
'' Whatever, I need to go to the bathroom, I don't feel well! '' he said as he walked away.
'' Excuse him, Diego always blames him when something's not done properly. He also isn't used to lose and take all of the blame!
I explained hoping he'd understand. His next quotes made it perfectly clear that he'd understand it all.
'' In my team, I do not allow all the responsibilities of the team to fall on one player.
In my team, when we win, we all win, and when we lose, I lose! ''
