Mia's P.O.V

Me and Carson sat in Ryan's room, watching him play PS4...while helping us with homework.

"What was the 3rd question again?"he said, eyes glued to the TV

"What makes a person heroic?"I repeat, for the 5th time

"I really don't know Meme"he said

"Ry, it's an opinion based question"I say

"It's asking for your opinion Mia, not mine"he said

I groan and fall back on the bed.

"Oh, Mia, I gotta go. My mom said she's on her way"Carson said

"Oh. I'll walk you down then"I say

"No, it's okay. I'm pretty sure I know my way around the house now"she said, chuckling a bit

"Okay then"I say

She packs up her stuff and exits the room, saying bye to Ryan on the way out. I looked around his room, then without second guess, stood up on the bed and started jumping around.

"So, will you be able to make it to my Baseball game Friday, Ry?"I say

"What time is it?"he asked

"It starts at 5:00"I say

He paused the game. He started thinking, then he stood up and made his way to the dresser. He checked his phone calendar. He then looked at me, in a "not so good" expression.

"What?"I say

"Elizabeth has a cheerleading competition that day. At that exact time"he said

"Oh"I say, slightly disappointed

"Yeah. Sorry M&M. Maybe, next- no, I have work that day. Alright, the Friday after next. How's that sound?"he said

"I guess it's okay"I say, still a little upset

"Mia, I'm sorry I can't make it. I'll make it up to you though, I promise"he said

"It's okay. Don't worry about it"I say

By then, I had gotten off the bed and grabbed my stuff.

"Mia"he said

I walked out of his room and into mine, without another word. I dropped my bag on the floor and plopped face down into my pillow.

Ugh!

Friday came, and I was warmed up for this baseball game against the Jaguars. I threw great warm up pitches, mostly strikes.

Steph was standing in the dugout talking to Sam. Mark and Simon were keeping a toll on how my pitches were going.

By the time I reached my 20th warm up pitch, they replaced me and had Alex come to start warming up. I made my way to the dugout.

"Hey Mia, what do you think about going to Los Angeles for the All Star game next month?"Sam said, as I put my glove on the bench

"Seriously?"I ask, surprised

"Yeah"he said, smiling

"I would love to go, honestly"I say

"Alex made a good pick this year"he said

"Why'd he pick me?"I ask

"Because you're great on the mound and on first"he said

"Oh okay then"I say
