AN: Hey there folks! Here I am, back with a new multichapter!
I'll try to be more regular with the posting, although I don't assure anything (school's crazy).
So, I finally decided to try an AU, but I'LL CONTINUE POSTING THIS ONLY IF I RECEIVE FEEDBACK.
Otherwise I'll just keep it for myself and save some trouble XD

P.S.: I know this is short, but it's just the prologue, nothing more.
I already have the first real chapter ready, so if I receive feedback I may post it soon.

P.P.S.: This is unbetaed. Every mistake is mine. The characters, however, are not, and neither is the show.

Onto the story!


Rose stared at the corner where people was laughing: of course the source of these were her teammates.

Her eyes became melanchonic when she saw them all hugging around and laughing, looking really happy.

She could never fit with them: they were successful, popular ones the "right" ones.

She had not the "required characteristics" to be part of that elite: she wasn't fast, she wash' successful, she wasn't in any kind of way popular.

Her heart constricted when she saw the bright smile of that one guy, the one that obviously was in that group and she could never have.

She turned away, the tears threatening to escape her eyes and, with a deep shaky breath, went to the changing rooms, almost running.


John's smile faltered while he followed with his eyes the blonde girl: she had such a deep sadness in her eyes that made him want to talk to her to make everything better.

He didn't even know her name: he knew that she swam with him, but she somehow became invisible once she had the swim-cap on.

He could recognize her only after training, but she never talked with anyone, never smiled if not with forced cheerfulness and she always slipped away before he could even think of going to her.

A too high-pitched voice broke through his thoughts and he put on a cordial smile: time to go back to the real world.

He could overthink later.
