Chapter 65

I was sitting on the couch, pissed. I was just muttering to myself and swearing when my phone buzzed.

From: Austie-Boo
Hey Alex can I talk to you?

To: Austie-Boo
Hi Austie Boo!!!! Sure! When??

From: Austie-Boo
Is now good?

To: Austie-Boo
Yeah :)

There was a knock on the door. I got up and opened the door to see a grinning Austin.

"AUSTIN!" I yelled happily. I hugged him tightly. "What are you doing here?" I asked.

"They resigned me," he said with a grin. I squealed.

"Yay! Austie Boo! This is so exciting!" I exclaimed. He nodded.

"Where's Rob?" he asked.

"At the stadium with the others. He was being a jackass so I left without him," I sighed. My face lit up. "I'm sure they'd love to see you!"

He laughed.

"Yeah. I'll go visit. But I figured I'd stop by. See you later alligator," Austin said. He left. Now I felt happier. Austie Boo was back! I sat on the couch before deciding to play Madden '13. I was amazing at that game. I popped it in and started playing, absolutely kicking the Ravens' asses.

"SUCK IT JOE FLACCO!" I yelled, as his video-game self went down, hurt. I watched him go down and limp back up. Third down.

*Rob Nincovitch's character sacks him*

Tom's character came up and he got the ball. I threw it to Danny's character, who got tackled. We lined back up and I threw to Julian's character. Then we lined up and I handed it off to LeGarrette, him making it to the endzone.

"WOO HOO!" I cheered, making him do the 'Swagger' touchdown dance. That was by far my favorite. Second quarter. I intercepted the ball as Devin McCourty's character. I got sacked and the offense came back onto the field.

*************************

I adjusted my blue Patriots beanie. I was sitting on the sideline, watching the game intently. I was still super pissed off. I was thinking of strategies as I watched Tom throw the ball to Rob. He ran and went down, but didn't get back up. I heard him yelling, and clutching his knee in pain.

"ROB?" I yelled. He stated down and kept yelling obscenities. "BILL GET HIM OFF THE FUCKING FIELD!" I screamed at the top of my lungs.
They dragged him away to the locker room as I watched in horror.

Julian's POV
I watched Alex scream hysterically as Rob was being brought off the field. I sprinted off the field and over to Bill.

"Coach, take me out of the game," I said breathlessly.

"No," he said, and he shook his head firmly. "I'm not taking you out, Edelman."

I swore.

"I'm the only one that can calm Alex down. Unless you want her to go into a frenzy, take me out of the game. Put Collie in. Take me out," I demanded. Again he shook his head.

"No, Julian."

"Look, either you're taking me out or I'm running off this damn field," I threatened. He shook his head.

"Go."

I ran after a hysterical Alex and heard Rob swearing as he was brought down the tube.

"Alex? Alex?" I called. Her shivering figure was barely visible in the dark tube to the locker room.

"J-Julian?" she quivered. I nodded and trotted over to her, pulling her into a brotherly embrace.

"Are you ok?" I asked. She shook her head.

"No. He was screaming and yelling. Julian, he's not ok," Alex whispered, burying her head into my jersey.

"Let's just wait here for a minute. We can go in then. We'll let them check him out first then we can see him in the locker room. You won't wanna go in now," I said softly. She shook her head.

"I'm going in now," she insisted.

She's gonna regret it, I thought bitterly.
