“What? But she was being ridiculous,” Emily looked for confirmation from the rest of the group.

“It’s all just stupid. The stuff you’re always bitching about. Melissa isn’t here, she’s gone. She’s not coming back, and I can’t listen to it anymore. I want to play ball to get my mind off of what happened, so can you please shut up,” Katrina was shouting by the end as she picked up a ball and started smacking it into her glove.

Erin: It wasn’t losing our star player that made us lose the game. It was the loss of our confidence that cost us the win.

Who’s the missing piece.

    “…Wait for Starry,” he answers.
    “You heard-”
    “Yes, I heard him, Josh,” he says, lowering his voice at the name, “but look at us, there is nothing we can do. Blades don’t cut this stuff, and even if we could the moment we walk out we’d be outmatched.” The three are silent as that sinks to their guts. “…So we wait. We didn’t pick him just because of his powers. He has potential.”
