The locker room. A place of blood, mud, sweat and hijinks.

There was no other feeling in the whole world quite like walking into a locker room after a victorious game out on the field. Pads and jerseys, soaked with sweat, got flung off haphazardly on either side of the bench. What did it matter if you weren't going anywhere for a good long moment anyway?

Cody felt the relief of an oscillating fan on his skin, still drenched from sweat during the game. He wished he could say that he was the quarterback throwing for most of it, but he was just the last one on the field; the coach kept the senior quarterback on the field for the largest part of the game, enough to secure the victory. The junior wasn't bitter about it... how could he be? Any smart and sane coach would do the same thing. Once things were looking good, Cody was put onto the field to wrap things up, and wrap them up he did. Next year, he'd been promising himself that he would be the one out there on the field carrying the day.

Right now, that was still mostly the seniors. Cody figured that they had been in here first so all the showers were probably full, something that the sound of rushing water hitting tile seemed to confirm. There was Ethan, first underclassmen in and out like a light already. Go figure, that finish was an exhausting trial for all involved. Cody sat down on a bench that didn't have a sleeping Ethan on it and began preparing for when it was his turn to clean up.

Ah, about time somebody else showed up. It looked like most of the Juniors were finally pouring in after such a long delay, probably thanks to cleaning up the bench or something. Cody realized he must have skipped out on that and walked in with all the Seniors. One part of him counted himself lucky, another part of him realized that Coach was probably gonna give him hell for not helping with towels and shit.

Now that the showers had been running for a good amount of time, steam was starting to accumulate on the interior side of the locker room. Heat flowed out through the narrow hallway over the benches, giving some relief to Cody now that it wasn't so goddamn cold without all of his padding and clothing. He took a breath to soak it all in... not just the welcome heat, of course, but the game's final events that had just transpired. A perfect pass down the left side of the field. A perfect catch. A follow-up tackle, but it didn't matter; they were ahead at that point, comfortably so in the last quarter, which was why the juniors had such a heavy presence at that point anyway. Still, it was the perfect pass and a perfect catch, good for first down had it occurred at any other point in the game. Nothing psyched him more than the possibility of taking the team to victory next year.

A loud shout of 'Sup man!?' shook Cody from his little Remember the Titans dream. He looked over post shock and was greeted with Miles, so no sooner than Cody saw him, he put a smile on his face. "Fuck yeah. Underclassmen cleanup crew, that's us," Cody laughed and brought his hand up to connect. "Can't wait 'til we're the starters."

Now that things were a bit more lively, Cody stood up and began putting his things in a pile, stripping down to underwear so he could snipe a spot in the first shower that opened up. "Where's Mike and Alba? They in yet?" He asked over his shoulder. "Ethan got here before I did, fucker's passed out already."

Miles could be kind of a damper on things sometimes, but damn did he have a good idea every once in a while. Cody felt that smirk, the one that he got when a plan ran through his head, cross his face when Miles mentioned putting the ribs to Ethan. Without voicing any intentions (just in case Ethan happened to snap out of his little post-game snooze), Cody shifted to the edge of the bench, leaned over and snatched the folded extra change of clothes belonging to the sleeping boy.

"Uh... hottest girl, huh?" Cody said off-hand once he had pulled back to his previous position, turning himself around on the bench to face the lockers. His eyes scoured the identical metal boxes, looking for the one that Ethan might search last. "Lana's pretty hot. I like a girl with muscle on her, plus she just strikes me as spicy as fuck. Mara's okay, too." Cody opened one of the lockers. "Then there's Veronica, except she's kind of a spaz, probably wouldn't date her beyond a hook-up. There's a few seniors too, like that girl in Connor's class... uh... Brandy?"

After the boy was done stuffing Ethan's shit into a locker and slamming the door, he turned to face Eli and the words of encouragement offered to him. "Thanks, man! Shiiiiiit, feels good after a win..." Cody stood up to stretch, hoping it wouldn't be fucking midnight before he got a shower.

The inner frown that formed when he missed his spot in the showers was not conveyed to the outside world, fortunately. Well, shit, Cody thought to himself, idly picking up and putting down random equipment of his in an effort to tidy up the area that he had staked out for himself on the bench. He could have really used that shower early, when the building still had some damned hot water left in it. Still, if he had been too slow on the uptake, he supposed that was his own damned fault. Whatever.

As he stooped over to take care of his jersey, shorts and other articles of clothing that could use a good folding for storage (before bringing them home, washing them and folding them again), Cody was interrupted in his noticing Mike Eastmund coming through the door. Christ, it was about time. He had been in this locker room long enough to... well, not really do anything, but Ethan had enough time to fall asleep, so that was long enough. Mike commented on his own being late though, so at least he was aware of it.

"Yeah, shit man, what took you so long?" Cody said with a laugh. Eastmund was one of the juniors, so the chance was better than not that he was still going to be there when the class of '12 took the reins. "Fucking the entire squa... cheerleading-..." Cody groaned as he realized he had fucked up the line to a perfectly good joke. "Fuck, forget it. Welcome back, we almost missed you!"

"Oh, not much!", Cody replied as steadily as he could. He positioned himself on the bench in a way that naturally allowed him to face away from Ethan, as not to give away the true culprit of the clothing heist. "Just, uh... bunch of people getting into showers. Shit man, what the hell did you think you were going to miss?"

"Oh, and right," Cody said off-handedly to Miles, even if it was a few seconds late in its delivery. "Yeah, I'm up for hitting the diner with the guys. Fuck knows I'm hungry after a game like that. You think they still do the sampler of the jalapeno poppers with the deep-fried cheese?"

The very thought of something as heart-attack inducing as mozzarella sticks induced some growling from Cody's stomach. After all the calories he had burned in this game, he deserved something of a reward.

"What about you, Ethan?" Cody asked, attempting to hide the smirk on his face as he craned his neck to face the other boy. "You down with us for going?"

He quickly turned back.
