HIIARG, Hawaii, 11:32 AM

I didn't have any time to think. My mind went blank for two minutes until I heard the shouts of the crowd. I was off fast but everything seemed to go by in a blur. Ty was alive! But how could he survive that? There has to be-

Something slammed into my hoverboard making me break away from the thoughts. Ty was pulling back, a lazy grin on his face. That bastard! Zyla glared at her own board and Xander looked at me briefly. I managed a nod but I was shocked. The red zone was coming up and I looked at Ty. Xander sensed this and shook his head, but I did anyway. I pulled away from the line and slammed into Ty. He looked indifferent. This blow however took Hex out of the game since I basically plowed through him to get to Ty. It started a bumping war and we fought over points. 104 to 99. 99 to 120. 159 to 120. This was a close game, yet we were playing the locals? Rino and Zyla looked tired on the final lap and when it was over I looked at the board. 331 to 330. We had lost by one point.

After the game Zyla kept glaring at me. Xander, however, yelled at me.

"What the hell was that for?" He yelled. "We could've won!" Well all that did was fuel my fire.

"Well its Bloods fault anyway! If he wasn't so fucking drunk I wouldn't be here!" I stormed off not thinking.


Castle Hilo Resort Fitness Room, Hawaii, 1:00 PM

I punched the bag so hard I thought my knuckles were bleeding. I've never been this mad before. When Xander entered the room I thought I'd lose it. He approached me first. Great. "I'm sorry." He said. "I'm sorry for yelling at you."

"Forget it."

"No, I-"

"I said, forget it." I punched the bag again.

"Phoenix…" He trailed off.

"What?" I snapped.

"I need to ask you something."

I waited. "That was him wasn't it? Is that why you were so distracted?"

"There you go again! Yes, I was distracted because of that guy. He was supposed to be dead for the love of God! If you knew someone that died then automatically came back in a match of Aircress, yes, I would imagine you would be distracted. Why are you blaming me? I was playing the game!" He sighed.


A/N:Ok, first off, I'm sorry this chapter is so short. This was mostly a filler chapter for is what to come. I promise the next chapter will be much longer. ^.^ You can probably guess the drama in the next chapter. XD
