Today's practice was tough. Coach Simms pushed all of you, yelling over the speakers that you have to "pick up the slack" for the loss of Rys. He put Tunde, your newest teammate, through the ringer, too. What's Tunde's best asset on the court, Tabitha? Who should worry about losing a spot to him?
Practice ended with suicides, a half hour of running up and down the court, with ten minutes of it over grav pads. You're bruised and aching. Everyone's drenched with sweat, breath coming in gasps when Coach Simms ends practice. There are no words as everyone trudges towards the showers. Pax, Zola, and you head for the woman's shower while the boys head to theirs.
Pax sticks her head under the shower and lets cold water wash over her. She doesn't bother to hide the metal discs in her side as she washes her body. They look like implants of some kind. Zola, standing at the shower next to you, sees it, tries to get your attention to make sure you see it, too.
After just a minute or so, Pax is done, she turns off her water, gives you both a nod, grabs her towel and slowly trudges out of the shower to dry off and put on clothes. Zola waits to make sure she's gone, then moves over to slip an arm around you.
What do you do?
