The two boys meet at the deserted gym to play a friendly game of basketball. They meet in the circle at half court and the game begins . The leathery ball fly's into the cold still air and the boys jump. The taller boy comes down with the ball and takes off for the basket.
Right behind him is the shorter of the two but his speed makes up for it. The shorter one stops him at the three point line. The stench of body odor lingers in the air. The taller boy dribbles around the arc but can not drive because the shorter one is too quick. The salty taste of sweat stays in both their mouths.
The taller boy crosses over once then goes behind the back. The shorter boy falls for the move and the taller boy drives to the basket. BAM! The taller boy slams the ball through the net and the rim shakes for about a minute. The two boys sit down and drink their sweet Gatorade after a well fought game.
