Benefit of Being Last


Gym in the summer sucks but Will is here with me anyway. He loves this kinda thing, it's in his blood and I wonder how he lived with a cast. The coach had already labeled me as a 'no hope' and Will as a 'star' but it's in his blood. Coach picks Will and another star as team captains. The rest of us line up, I am last, like always. When he reaches me I realize there are an odd number of kids. "Pick a team." He growled. So I dashed toward Will.
