Dani’s flip flops slapped each of the light blue painted cement stairs with each step she took. She heaved a sigh as she shrugged her shoulder in a hopeless attempt to nudge her duffle to a more comfortable spot. The sounds of grunts, groans and vinyl being struck greeted her. Usually it was a sound that made her so happy. Today nothing could break her out of her funk.

Fitz disappeared while she was in the bathroom. He punctuated his departure with the slam of the door. His breakfast laid untouched on the coffee table. She reminded herself over and over it was just a one night stand. She couldn’t be with him. What would her team say? These men and women were closer to her than her own family. Her dating a member of Diamondhead? It was inconceivable.

It didn’t stop the tears though. She slumped on her bed and cried. Finally she pulled herself together enough to get dressed and head to practice.

As she hit the top step her eyes met with Ryan’s. She huffed. Great, of all the people to meet me this morning…

He cocked his head at her. “What’s up, buttercup?”

Dani averted her gaze to the gold champion belts that hung on the wall. There sure were a lot of them. Her’s now hung near the top, the newest to a prestigious collection. She hoped he didn’t notice her swollen eyes. “Nothing.”

“Right. You’ve been crying.”

“I have not.”

“Bullshit. What’s wrong, Dani?”

“I said nothing. Why can’t you take my word for it?”

“Because I know you, Dani. Remember?”

“Maybe you don’t know me as well as you think.”

“Whatever. Go get ready. We start in five minutes.”

“Fine.” She toed off her flip flops and stormed across the mats to the women’s locker room.
