A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.

Phil didn't like Alex. Mind you he didn't really like anyone. The conversation had paused for a moment as Rhory exited the scene and Phil became awkwardly aware of his hand gripping Jennifer's and he let go, tucking the offending arm behind his back. Blushing furiously he stumbled over the words.

"I... uh that ain't probably a good idea. Maybe go with Rhory."

His gruffness had lessened now, more because of his embarrassment rather than anything else. He didn't want Alex hanging around, he wasn't friends with him, he couldn't trust him. Phil knew Alex's type. All nice and friendly in your face but once your back was turned telling everyone that you were fat. That you were dumb. That they only let you on the team cause they felt sorry for you. Well Phil wasn't fat, he wasn't dumb. He had earned his place on the team so Alex could fuck off. That was another thing. Rhory taking all of the water and not even sticking around. Girls were like that though, just take take take. Except he supposed Jen. She hadn't done anything mean yet, she had stuck with him. Maybe she was different.

The comforting presence of Marco was still around as well and Phil turned to him. Maybe he knew what to do, god knows that he was pretty smart on the rink. Marco would always be talking about the strategies and where to go and such. Phil just went where he was told, did what needed to be done and he did it well.

"uh.. yeah," he continued, his brain ponderously thinking out the words, "but I dunno. Maybe stick with us is smart too? What do ya think Marco, Jen?" Phil looked hesitantly at his companions. He was still unsure what he was supposed to be doing. Whatever they said though, he would do it well.
