`Chapter .001 | Above The Rim
"Your next assingment for this semester will be a hands on assignment. I know you all are over the writting assignments so, I selected a few names with the highest grades to do physical therapy for this fall and winter sports events, which includes football, basketball and baseball". Professor Miller walked around the room passing out personal assignment sheets.
Dakota twirled her pen around staring up at the clock on the wall. She knew she would recieve an assignment, she had an 100%, nothing lower. Was she nervous to know which sport she had to attend every game? Hell yeah.
"I picked a sport I'd think you'd really enjoy". Proffessor Miller said handing Dakota a thick packet. The front sheet was a list of the Pitt Panther Basketball Roster.
Her nerves quickly went away. She was a fan of basketball. Was she familiar with the guys on the team? Not at all. But now, she had no choice but to get to know them all.
"Okay students, you're dismissed. Goodluck". Professor Miller smiled.
Dakota grabbed her books and purse from the table as she made her way to my dorm room. Dropping everything onto the floor, jumping into her bed. She reached for her grinder on the night stand next to her bed. Rolling up her palma she waited for her dorm door to swing open with her friend Ariel walking through the door.
"Right onh time". Ariel smiled, kicking her shoes off at the door. She grabbed the door from behind the door, laying it on the floor against the door so the smoke wouldn't go into the dorm hallway.
"You're always on time". Dakota said as she hit the blunt.
"You know what's funny?". Ariel say down in the computer chair next to the window. "You here for physical therapy, you smoke weed and you still manage to make straight A's. That's what I'm talkin' about Kota!". Ariel laughed as she hit the blunt.
Dakota blew O's as she laughed a little. "Weed doesn't make you dumb or lazy, that's your choice. It makes me focus more to be honest". Dakota stood up grabbing her packet she recieved in class.
"It makes me sleepy". Ariel passed the blunt.
"Because you're lazy". Dakota mumbled.
"Shut up. What's that thick packet for?". Ariel asked.
"Boys Basketball roster. I have to go to every game and help out with physical therapy sh-t". Dakota skimmed through the packet.
"So, you'll be at the game tonight helping out?". Ariel looked over at Dakota.
Dakota's eyes got big. "You're bullsh-ttin' right? There's a game tonight?".
"Yes. 7:30. I'll go with you". Ariel grabbed her purse heading to the door.
"I'll meet you there. I'm sure I have to go meet the coach and everything". Dakota stood up.
"Ok. Call me when you're ready". Ariel left the room.
Dakota searched her room for something to wear. She began to get nervous all over again. She didn't expect to jump right into her assignment in the next three hours.
