‘Ouch and ouch´
My head is pounding and pulsating from the double hit and I tried to get up but fell back onto the ground.
“What the f**k?” I groaned in disbelief when I saw a soccer ball rolling on the ground not so far from me. I guess that’s the culprit.
“Hey you, could you pass the ball?” I heard a voice and I looked at its direction to see a guy poking his head above the tall fence with an annoyed expression on his face. I was still sitting on the ground and waited for the dizziness to pass when he talked again impatiently.
“Will you give it back anytime soon?” He asked sarcastically and rolled his eyes.
“Can’t you see that I have a hard time geting up since your ball hit me that hard? You should say sorry first, didn’t your parents teach you any manners?” I scolded him and tried to get up again slowly but I felt dizzy still so I stayed in a half standing position, holding my head in my hands.
“I hit someone with the ball so that’s double score guys.” The boy turned his head around and shouted to someone and I heard cheering and laughing behind the fence. “Now give my ball back princess, I don’t like to repeat myself.” He said rudely. Who does he think he is? I finally managed to stand up and I walked towards the ball to pick it up from the ground. ´You f**ker.´ I cursed him in my head when I felt my head is throbbing when I stood up again.
“Finally.” He said, he was clearly annoyed and I walked towards him.
“You know, you found the wrong neighbour to mess with” I said while throwing his ball repeatedly in the air with just one hand and catching it after. “...and since you even laughed at me, I will keep your ball till you learn some manners and say sorry for hitting me with it.” Now I was walking back to pick my book up and headed inside.
