It always sucks having to make a change of plans because life gets in the way. You had a routine that you liked, after all it’s hard trying to maintain a social life while also being in the nursing program. You never had an issue with grades before, passing had never even been a concern when you entered college, but that all changed when your anatomy professor called you for a meeting and told you that you were going to make a D and have to re-take if your grade didn’t go up. Of course, you did not want to waste one of your credit courses by re-taking the course so you offered to do anything, not in a gross way, just a way to make that D a C at the very least. Luckily, your anatomy teacher was willing to offer you a special test that would replace your lowest test grade, but he had a favor to ask. He helped out with the college team and the team could use a manager and if you could help out twice a week by doing just that he would give you the test a week before classes end to give you plenty of time to study. You hated sports though and the idea of spending two days a week for at three hours at a time helping out the soccer team wasn’t very appealing.
“See the bright side Y/N!” One of your roommates perked up when you came back to recount the meeting you had with your professor.
“Bright side?” You asked.
“Duh, a bunch of cute athletic guys running around. Come on, how bad could that be?” Your other roommate laughed.
“I don’t have time for that, if I do my best and make a 100 on the test I’ll get a B and then the other classes I take I’ll have to really focus on. I have told you guys how competitive the program gets after a certain level right?”
“Yes, yes we know. Which is exactly why you should enjoy it before you get to that point.” The first spoke again.
“Whatever, I have to go tomorrow and introduce myself and get the schedules and find out what else I need to do as the team manager. I should also learn a bit about soccer too I guess.”
“That might help, I’m off to psych.” The second waved and left.
You could do this, it was just a month or so anyways, how bad could it be?
“Why is it always so hot? Yesterday it was nice and there were come clouds, but as soon as we have practice it heats up and the clouds disappear.” Mark complained.
“Because you complain about it all the time.” Jaemin came up finishing his own laps, “Yuta, you wouldn’t happen to have old psych three notes would you?”
“I might, what’s in it for me?” I laughed.
“Anything, food? I’ll run your laps for you next practice if you bring them?”
“Deal.” I said shaking Jaemin’s hand.
“Who’s that?” Mark stood up and squinted across the field.
Jaemin and I both turned to look and see that there indeed was someone new on the field.
“I shall find out.” I winked and ran over to the new person, they looked around and nodded at and went over to one of our assistant coaches, I think he teaches anatomy or something like that. They were talking and he was handing them a bunch of papers and waving his hands around and seemingly explaining, but it looked like it went in one ear and out the other as they nodded at the instructions.
“…ah, perfect actually, hey, Nakamoto!.” The coach called and I quickly jogged over once I was actually called on. “This is our new team manager, Y/N. Y/N, this is Nakamoto Yuta, he’s captain this season. If you have any questions ask him as he’ll probably have an answer.” The coach smiled, clapped me on the back, and went back to drilling with the goalie as was his usual job.
“Welcome to the soccer club I guess. I’m Yuta.” I extended a hand.
“Y/N.” My hand was very gently shaken as they balanced papers in the other.
“Let me help you out with those, so what are you doing today?”
“Oh, uh, I have to go through all of these and organize them and then look over all of the forms you all have submitted and make sure everything was done correctly.”
“Fun.” I sympathized and indicated my head as a follow me and took half the stack and led them to the locker room. “No one’s changing right now so you should be good to do all that in here instead of in the scorching sun.”
“Right…do I know you from somewhere?”
“I am the team captain?” I suggested and looked a little closer before it hit me and I felt like I should be jogging out of the room. “No, I don’t recall you.” I chuckled, a bit nervous now as they squinted and then the face I feared…the realization.
“You…you’re the one who knocked all my things everywhere during orientation and then on the first day of classes you-”
“I should head back to the field, good luck with the paperwork.” I cut them off and hustled in a way the coaches would have applauded.
It really couldn’t get any worse. Maybe you should just repeat the class, it would probably be nicer than having to ever work with soccer captain Nakamoto Yuta. You’ll just suck it up today and discuss it with the professor again tomorrow, no way could you bother even pretending to be nice now to him.
