Abe kicked the red and white soccer ball toward the net and smiled as it landed against the white netting with a dull thump. He had brought the ball from home, since his sister had given it to him for his birthday about a year ago, and it reminded him of home. Granted, he had only been at CSU for a couple of days and he was already in love with the campus and the town, but... still. Home was home, and he'd never been away for more than a month and a half before. But now he'd be gone till Thanksgiving, and possibly not get to go home then either.




At least he had soccer. He'd be able to play on the team (hopefully) - after all, that's why he was here. He wouldn't have been able to come to CSU without his hefty soccer scholarship, and he was infinitely grateful for it. 


He just wished he had some friends already. His roommate hadn't moved in yet, and so far he'd just kind of been sliding under the radar. Not that he had ever cared, but at his high school, he'd always been considered decently popular. He hadn't cared for it at the time, but now he was realizing that he had sort of taken it for granted. Having people everywhere that liked you and your company had been kind of nice, considering.


Couldn't be helped. He just had to make some friends here and stop being homesick. That was stupid - he'd only been here a little while, and it was going to be great. It was just the convincing-himself part that was a little hard right now. 


He picked his ball up and carelessly drop-kicked it into the air, watching it arc down and bounce slightly in the short, bright green grass. Ugh. If only he had someone to play with.

After a good our of back and forth arguing, Seb had finally convinced hismelf to go on a short jog. He had gone maybe a quarter mile when suddenly a red and white ball rolled past him. The freshman stopped mid-stride and stared at the ball for a moment wondering where it could have come from. It took a moment to click before he realized that he was running in a small field and there was a person standing not to far away from the rolling ball.


Finally reacting this turn of events, Seb ran after the ball. Just before he started to pick it up, he noticed that it was a soccer ball. A smile crossed his face and instead of picking it up, he rolled the ball towards himself with his foot. He backed up a pace or so and then kicked the ball that was now rolling towards him. Getting his toes underneath, he launched the ball into the air, flying accurately towards it's owner. After getting some decent air time, gravity started to take hold and brought the ball down just in front of the other man.


For a moment, the Texan just stood there and blinked for a second. He had never been that accurate back home. Strange. Realizing he wasnt alone again, Seb waved at the owner of the soccer ball and smiled. "Careful, not to lose that!" he called out across the field, "Its a nice ball and I may keep it next time!" he added, jokingly. At least, he hoped it sounded like a joke. His smile showed be proof enough of that, right? Oh please take it as a joke....

Abe watched a guy come running on the field. When the guy kicked his ball back with the skill of a pro, Abe grinned. "Hey, nice kick, man." He picked it up and jogged over to him. Might as well introduce himself, right?


"Thanks. My sister gave it to me." He grinned at the guy's joke, not actually worried about his beloved ball being stolen. People didn't do that kind of stuff. Well... they did, but they never warned you about it beforehand. "I'm Abe." He stuck his hand out for the stranger to shake. "What year are you?" The guy looked like a freshman, but you could never be sure. Some of the freshmen here were 20, and some seniors were 21. Obviously what year you graduated high school factored into the situation, but sometimes people had other situations that made getting to college right out of high school difficult, if not impossible. 


Abe hadn't made any friends since coming here, but maybe that could change. This guy could at least kick a ball, which had to count for something, right? At least maybe they could play a game of one-on-one together. That would be fun.


He really didn't want to come across as desperate, but he kind of was. Abe wasn't really sure how long he could go without some friends. He'd never been a loner, and had no idea how to function as one. It sucked, man.
