((Mia Rose continued from Yard Sard))

Mia had gone through enough ‘gorgeous days’ to last a lifetime.

It was yet another scorching hot day in Kingsman. Any other person on earth would probably be spamming their Facebook and Twitter feeds with just how nice out it looked, and sure, Mia could appreciate the aesthetic aspect of it, and how nice it was to just sit outside and chill. It made swimming even greater than it normally was, too.

But for any other form of exercise, it might as well be classified as torture. Jogging in this heat was like going running with a backpack full of rocks strapped to you. It got easier the more you did it, sure, but you’d probably get pretty good at sleeping on a bed of nails if you did it enough, and there were easier ways of freakin’ sleeping.

Okay, maybe Mia was over exaggerating a little bit. The fact remained, however, that she was getting a little tired of the weather. If it was just a little cooler, it’d be pretty much perfect, but nope, the sun refused to take a nap for even just a day. Hopefully one of the sports colleges she was considering would be located somewhere in a more temperate climate. Like… Alaska. Or something.

Ugh. Mia mentally berated herself as she sped along as many side paths as possible. She’d decided to go with a change of pace, and go cycling today; she hadn’t done so for a good while. Course, she had made this plan somehow forgetting that the reason for that was because her BMX was currently getting repaired, but that had only momentarily stopped her. She had ‘borrowed’ David’s bike for the day; surely he wouldn’t be too annoyed, right? His annoyance would be nothing compared to her mom’s wrath if she discovered Mia had been cycling without a helmet, anyways.

She had been enjoying the ride, feeling the wind rush past her and whip through her hair, the world tinted sapphire through her sunglasses, but thinking about what she was going to do after school always put a damper on things. She knew she was going to have to actually put her mind to it and make a decision soon, but it felt like no matter what she chose, she was going to be disappointing somebody. And what if she ended up completely regretting her decision, whatever that may be, in the years to come?

So Mia was welcome for the distraction as she turned into Sumac Park, and instantly caught sight of Oskar Pearce; even through her sunglasses, it was hard to miss her fellow cheerleader. They didn’t get to talk all too often outside of cheerleading, thanks to Mia’s schedule, so it would be good to spend some more time with him. Mia changed track and lowered her speed, heading towards her friend.

Oskar was already talking to someone slightly less familiar, but as Mia drew closer, she recognised the other guy as Ty Yazzie. Mia had never really spent much time around Ty, the closest probably being described as ‘casual proximity’. Thus, everything she knew about him stemmed from the rumour mill, and thus, she really knew very little about him. Lots of different opinions from lots of different people, ranging from one extreme to another. Whatever! It was personal experiences that counted the most.

As soon as she was close enough to the pair, Mia dismounted. She removed her earphones, letting all and sundry hear a few seconds of Porter Robinson’s “Lionhearted”, before she pressed pause on her iPod and removed her water bottle from its holster on the bike.

“Hey guys! What’s happening? Nice outfit by the way, Oskar!”

Mia flashed a cheerful grin, before taking a swig of water.

Mia stretched her arms out above her head before rolling her shoulders back a couple of times. It was always good to stretch out before and after any form of exercise, both for how it felt and how useful the cooldown was for her. It was also always good to see that both guys seemed to be in positive spirits.

Well, Oskar mostly. But at least Ty seemed to be slightly less dour than he normally looked. So that was good!

Mia wiped her mouth with the back of her hand, then her brow, before putting her water bottle back in its holster on her bike. Then she turned back to face Oskar and Ty, still smiling.

“I’ve been good, can’t really complain! I was planning on heading to the skate park, but my BMX is kinda, y’know, busted at the moment.” Mia shrugged. “Collisions, crashes. It happens!”

She conveniently left out the part where she was freaking out about her impending future more and more with every passing day, where every time she made a ‘final decision’ she thought of a million drawbacks and changed her mind, and where every time she put that decision off, the worry grew yet more stronger. Oskar and Ty didn’t need to hear about that, and she didn’t want to remind herself of it.

So, in the depths of her mind it stayed.

“So what competition are you practicing for, Ty?”
