I had been getting something out of my shoe. It was one of those rubber pebbles, and it was itchy.
Suddenly, “Tae!”

I jerked my head up fast as a whistle! Warm sweat trickled down my nose. When my brain realized the game had resumed, my eyes grew big. Everyone was across the field already! I’m pretty sure my face felt hot and turned beet red, or was it just heat from all the work?

I finally swiped off the last rubber pebble and jumped up. What had happened during my little “daydream”? I didn’t want to know. My legs were tired, feeling like they were going to collapse any minute. I quickly stretched my shoulders back, feeling a ticklish bead of sweat on my nose again. I swiped it off, then took off. I glanced at everybody. Luckily, no one seemed too annoyed at me. But ack! It was still pretty embarrassing. I don’t know, but I’m sure I felt a breeze of welcome on me. It felt good.
