Lucky Strike | Football Player Liam Oneshot (Intro Only)
He had to earn his stripes somehow. He would either be sat on the bench, watching the other players run down the field and make endless goals and watch the people in the bleachers go mad over their success, or he could be the guy that everyone paid attention to all the time no matter if he was on the bench or not.
Liam was categorized as “Mr. Lucky” because even though he was the best player on his football team, he remained sat on the bench. Coach Lawson said something about ‘not showing everyone else up’, but that was complete bullshit in Liam’s mind. He wanted to play a not-so-fair game that was already taking place. But being the all-star had it’s perks; he was able to stay out later, far above his campuses curfew. He was able to get any girl he wanted. He got free food in the cafe, a plethora of “fan letters” (mostly all of them just being random girls’ phone numbers).
But whether he was the great player everyone expected him to be, he was still unlucky in the dating world. On evenings he’d stay awake and call the girls on his endless list of phone numbers and try and chat them up, but the call would usually last a measly second before the girl on the other end hung up, letting his ear fill with the annoying sound of the beep.
He was wondering if his luck would run out. That if one day he’d wake up and everyone would stop knowing who Liam Payne, “Mr. Lucky”, was. Because he was able to scan his list of numbers all the time and skip over the person who wasn’t so lucky. The girl who’d shy away from everyone. The girl who’d watch him play in the fields on the campus but would turn her back and continue down the sidewalk with her friends.
Picking up his phone and pounding his fingers onto the screen for the final time that night, he dialed her number and waited for her to answer. “Um, is the Natalie? It’s Liam… Payne. Liam Payne.”
