Ocean-View Super Bowl:
It was lovely Saturday night, with families and friends all at the newly opened Super Bowl, as since Bowling was one of America’s most favourite past times, a game that was liked by both boys and girls. Bowling was fun and competitive, so long as it never gets taken too seriously. Children of all ages watched and played, those that were a little young always got a little help from their parents, other than that, there were specially made balls that even young toddlers could use and throw, which really helped them to enjoy bowling on a bowling alley, as much fun as it was for all of the other kinds doing the very same thing.
David Blake was with his mates having fun as usual whenever the girls came up to play. “You girls do not know how to throw the ball and could not get down all of the skittles all in one go, even if you had muscles.” The girls simply ignored David’s remark, they played like anyone else but of course as they bowled the bowling ball down the bowling alley, the ball at best would knock down 3 to 5 skittles at best. 5 was considered quite good out of 10, but it was not really enough to impress the boys who can get 8 and those who could clear all of the skittles were well liked by all.
A little girl came up to play, she was wearing jeans, a jumper, trainers, though those were special ones made for walking on the bowling alleys as so not to slip and fall down on them. That said, despite the fact that she had pigtails that were all coiled up so that they would not get in the way, she virtually almost looked like a boy, there was only tinges of pink to her entire outfit, if it were not for her hair, she would have certainly looked more like a boy, than she was a little girl.
Little girls that looked and dressed like boys was a big joke, as far David was concerned. “Hey… little girl. Aren’t you supposed to be wearing pretty little dresses? I bet you would not be able to bowl whilst wearing one.” David mocked. “Oh and I suppose you could be able to do exactly that. I take it then?” Remarked an older girls voice as the little girl ran off crying to her mother. “What?” David turned to see who had spoken to him.
A girl of 15 came up to him, she was no better than the little girl, she had on a red jumper, it had a gold motif on the right, clearly it was a boys jumper, as anything girls have, things are always done on the opposite side. The jeans were boys jeans too. So were the socks and shoes on her feet, she even wore a boys cap and her hair was in a ponytail. She had brown eyes and brown hair. David had just past the shoulder length hair, it was blonde, he had blue eyes.
His hair though was pretty much always a mess no matter how many times his mother tried to get him to get his hair cut or groomed. David was a fresh teenager, just turned 13 years old, and already he was getting the typical teenaged brat part down to a T. As the saying goes. Sarah looked worried as she looked on, her husband had ran off with another woman, leaving her to bring up David on her own, she was grateful however of the community spirit of Ocean-View, who all helped her out.
Long gone had the days when David had been such a sweet little boy. She was about to go over and give David a good telling off, but she stopped to see first how the confrontation with the older girl was to turn out, she had heard what the girl had said and could not help smile at remark that she had made. “You heard?”
“Sorry… I do not talk girl. You girls are all the same, you say silly stupid things that only girls can actually understand.”
Remarked David, feeling proud of himself, Sarah almost took that as her cue to take him off to give him a good yelling at. As she did not really want to cause a scene at the bowling club. But the girl before him did not at all seem too phased by what he had just said, in fact she was not the least upset. Sarah looked on, who was most impressed with this girl. “Okay, I shall repeat that in a way that you can and will understand. Replied the girl.
”Yeah right!” David scoffed at the girl. “Since you obviously think and believe that, that little girl can’t bowl, not even wearing a dress. Then I would like to see you do better, by wearing one yourself.”
“You are the one that is stupid. What part about that you should try bowling whilst wearing a dress did you not understand?”
“Seriously. Is that your best reply?”
“No. I am not some stupid girl and only girls wear dresses. You should be wearing one too, but I bet that you do not know how to actually wear one since you have most probably been wearing pants for far too long.” That was more than what Sarah was willing to put up with, even if the girl could make a good come back, someone had already alerted one of the super-bowl staff.
Sarah did not want David to be banned for going there, or her banned too, since she was responsible for him and should have taken him off to give him a good telling off already.
“That’s enough David. I think you have done enough damage for one day. We are going home right now.” David looked over towards Sarah and sighed. “It looks like your Mommy came to your rescue.” Said the girl in a mock childlike tone, to David, to make him feel like he was a child again. He was about to respond, but Sarah had clipped his ear with her hand, and then dragged him by it, right out of the super-bowl with a couple of onlookers that laughed at what they had just seen.
