Number One

Feel like going out on a date with a Cake-eater?" "Feel like kissing a condom?" The unity between Cake-eaters and condoms was not accepted between us, but that didn't stop me from wanting him.

Helen Thinks: Desperate for a sugar fix after losing a basketball game, Elly is down at the vending machines when she runs into someone she's least expecting; the boy she's had a crush on since Kindergarten. Kam Kendall plays for her rival time so she believes there's an unwritten rule that they can't date but this has prevented her from crushing on him nor did it stop her friends from sending a friend request off her account on Facebook nor does it stop him from accepting. So what, exactly, does that mean?

I'm not going to lie when I state that I'm British and therefore, not knowledgeable when it comes to the game of 'Basketball' but Castiel89 writes the moments perfectly; making me aware of every action, game plan as well as the emotions that the team players are feeling. This, however, obviously isn't the main subset of the story. Oh no, not in a long run.

Do you want to know what makes this story one of the best I've ever read? It's the fact that it's based on real events (sadly, this does not include the ending!) and this personal outlook from the wonderful Castiel89 provides a story filled with raw emotion that anyone who has ever 'suffered' from an unrequited crush will be able to relate to. Each awkward moment that Elly feels when she's faced with Kam is realistic; the fear to add him on facebook, stumbling over sentences when he's around and hiding away when he steps into her place of work; and is extensively relayed across through beautiful narration.

As biased as I am; that's right, Castiel89 is fellow judge, the lovely Amy!; this one shot is 'Number One' in my books.
