What A Hit
It was like everything was in slow motion. I threw my hands up, getting ready to set the ball. I guess I wasn't fast enough, because the ball hit me so hard, right in the forehead. Everyone stared straight at me, some were giggling. Obviously, they had never got hit with a volleyball as hard as I just did.
The coach put me on the bench and sent in one of my teammates. "Are you okay?" he asked me. "N-N-No," I stammered while crying. He was probably mad that he lost his best player... me. "Just shake it off," he kept saying, half paying attention to me, half paying attention to the game. The pain eased, and soon enough, I was back playing and my first position was serving. I served it over perfectly every time and played without getting hit again.
