Robin POV

" I don't know what's taking the other girl so long but lets just get started," Dean stated getting up from his seat in his office.

After a long day of classes, I had to come straight to his office to get started.

"Here you go," he said sighing as he placed a bunch of papers and folders right in front of me.

"There you have the calendar for this school year, protocol, games to come this year, blah blah, whatever. Organize the load. From now on your in charge of water duty for my boys. Make sure the water stand is full stocked during practice and at the games too. There is info in there somewhere on where to get the water buckets in the school building. Towels and all that extra stuff should be in there too. Book the hotels for the away games and the budgets and all in there some where. You have to go through me for confirmation because some people can't be trusted with the budget. Make the bookings and all that and you gotta show me the final whatever so I know you didn't fuck up. Anything else I missed should be in there." He said in a hurry.

I nodded trying to take notes on what I had to do. He got up and grabbed his jacket and clip board.

"Practice is about to start so lets go," he said already heading out the door.

I hurriedly gathered the folders and loose papers on the desk and tried to shove as much as I could in my backpack. I gathered the rest and tucked them safely in my arms.

I had to jog to catch up to him. Why the hell is he moving so fast?

After finally catching up to him, slightly out of breath he started talking again, " You are part of the team now, that is if all goes well. I'm gonna tell you this for the last time, DO NOT WASTE MY DAMN TIME," he said sternly as we walked through the doors outside leading to the football field.

"Yes sir," I said quietly as I followed behind him.

Walking towards the football field , I noticed that the other school sports teams were practicing. I mentally groaned. The last thing I want is to be surrounded by a bunch of people.

"This is where you will be set up, " he stated as we approached a white table already filled with cups and beverages.

"Know the players habits and preferences, its part of your job-"

"Coach Ambrose!" We both turned towards the loud shriek and saw a tall girl approach us.

"Well it's nice for you to finally join us Alicia, where the hell have you been?" Dean asked with his voice filled with impatience.

"Well I just came from doing my nails and my hai-"

"Your stupid," he said abruptly cutting her off and going towards the end of the table getting himself a cup of water.

The girl who's name I just learned turned to look at me with a shocked face then walked towards the coach.

"I'm sorry Coach, it won't happen again," she said trying to sound apologetic.

"Whatever, just don't let that shit happen again. Robin will fill you in on what you gotta do. Get out of my face," he said waving her away. She huffed and came my way.

I couldn't help but feel uneasy about her as she slowly approached me. She stopped in front of me slowly eyeing me up and down. Her eyes held so much scrutiny and I didn't really know what to do.

Why is she looking at me like that?

"Uh um.. hi," I said speaking to her carefully. She slightly tilted her head and looked at me like I was some sort of nuisance to her sight.

"Mhhmmm," she said slowly. Well okay then. I bit my lip and just started taking the papers out my bag and placed them on the table.

"Well my name is Robin and I guess we are gonna be working together," I said cracking a small smile towards her, hoping that would lighten the mood.

"Yay.." she said sarcastically.

"Well I guess when life throws us lemons we gotta make lemonade... I hate lemonade," she said bitterly.

"Any way! I'm Alicia, What did I miss?" she said flipping her mood completely as she sat a chair behind the table.

I was taken a back by her sudden mood swing. Was she always going to be this way?

"Alright um, Well first we have to organize all these papers and then decide on how we are gonna work together and split the responsibilities," I started as I tried to fill her in. I glanced at her and she seemed completely distracted not really paying attention.

I shook my head and mentally sighed. I guess I'm going to be doing most of the work here.

I was startled by a loud whistle from in front of us and I jumped startled. I looked up and saw that the team were starting to approach our table. I glanced at Alicia and she was fixing her shirt and fluffing her hair.

I on the other hand am a nervous wreck. Why the hell did I pick this job?

I gulped the lump in my throat as I saw the large men approach the table. The sounds of heavy foot steps hitting the turf only quickened the pace of my heartbeat. They were too oblivious to the fact I was about to have a mini heart attack as they joked with each other and shoved one another.

Watching them kind of reminded me of how my brother was with his friends. The way they fooled around and enjoyed life made me envy him so much. I miss him. He wasn't always there for me but I still miss him.

The whistle blew again and the laughter and joking finally calmed down as Dean stood in front of the table and the players stood a few feet in front of him. I felt someone looking at me and I scanned the crowd only to be met with eyes boring right into mine.

Ryan smirked at me only making the hairs on my neck stand and the goosebumps on my arm become evident. He cocked his head side to side before winking at me and chuckling to himself.

"Alright listen up! Before we start today's practice, we have a new edition to the team! Coach Anoai' isn't here yet but-"

"I'm right here, " a voice echoed. I instantly got chills knowing who's voice that belonged to. I turned my head slightly and spotted him taking his spot right next to Dean.

I suddenly felt excited knowing that he was right in front of me. I marveled at his back just enjoying the view.

What the hell?

What am I doing?

Where are these feelings coming from?

I was taken out of my rambling by Dean talking, " Right well, this won't take long, I just want to introduce our new water girl slash team managers for this season. Treat them with respect because they handle the snacks and your beverages. Ya'll don't want spit in your drinks and food so I suggest you don't be stupid. They're part of the team now so yeah. Here they are gentleman, Robin Fenti and Alicia Deer," he said turning to us.

"It's Fox! Alicia Fox!" she said shrieking. A few of the boys started chuckling and I couldn't help but smile too.

"I knew it was an animal, I forgot which one," he said shrugging. She huffed and leaned back and crossed her arms.

"Go start your warm up and then we have suicide runs today, " he said turning his attention back to the team. There was an orchestra of male groans as the turned towards the field.

I hadn't even noticed that Joe was now turned to the table looking at me.

"Well look what we have here," he said smiling. Even though I saw him in class today, I couldn't help but be happy to see him again. Wait what?

"Hey," I said softly looking at him.

"Looks like we're gonna be spending more time together huh baby girl?" He said crossing his arms and flexing in the process. This man has beautiful arms.

Oh God I'm in trouble.
