  1. Maybe she's just being friendly? I... I suppose it can't hurt to wave back.
  2.  
  3. Pulling a face that either expresses happiness, or pure fear -- I can't tell for sure, maybe a mix of both -- I acknowledge her with a lazy wave of my hand.
  4.  
  5. r "Think fast, Luke!"
  6.  
  7. I didn't quite catch that, what did she say?
  8.  
  9. p "Hrrk!"
  10.  
  11. Before I know what's truly happening, a basketball rockets my way and rebounds off of my head with the impact of a runaway freight train.
  12.  
  13. I twirl on the spot before crumpling to the floor, my heading ringing and my eyes gazing skyward, just barely conscious.
  14.  
  15. r "Yeesh! I've met old people with faster reflexes."
  16.  
  17. Rachel looms over my dazed form. Or... three Rachels, maybe. It's hard to say.
  18.  
  19. r "You alright? C'mon, up ya get!"
  20.  
  21. One of the Rachels extends a hand towards me, of which I waste no time in grabbing -- after several failed attempts of grabbing at air of course. I don't think I'd be able to stand upright on my own even if I tried.
  22.  
  23. r "Aaaand up we go!"
  24.  
  25. Rachel pulls me back up on my feet with ease -- with one hand, even!
  26.  
  27. r "Sorry 'bout that. Maybe I threw it a little too hard?
  28.  
  29. A 'little' was a bit of an understatement. I'm lucky to still have my head attached to my shoulders!
  30.  
  31. I wobble some as I regain my balance, my head still stinging from the impact. Getting hit by a basketball apparently REALLY hurts.
  32.  
  33. r "So, do you remember me from yesterday?"
  34.  
  35. Remember her? Of course I do! How could I forget her after how crazy last night was?"
  36.  
  37. Dazed, I nod in response, still not sure if I can remember how to form words yet.
  38.  
  39. She beams at me, looking fairly excited about this whole thing.
  40.  
  41. ...Whoa, I never noticed this before, but standing right next to her like this, she's really tall. I actually have to angle my head upwards a little to meet her eyes.
  42.  
  43. r "Awesome. We didn't really get a chance to talk back then, did we? Blame Katherine for hogging the spotlight the whole time. She just loves the sound of her own voice."
  44.  
  45. p "I... I didn't really get a chance to talk either. To be honest, I'm not even sure what last night was..."
