Archie could feel the wind in his face and his leg muscles burning as he

attempted to pass his much faster friend, Atlanta. He could only see everything he

passed as a colourful blur. But no matter how hard he pushed his burning muscles

he could not keep up with his fiery-haired friend. He may have been fast, but

Atlanta was faster, something she would never EVER let him forget.

Finally they came to the finish line. As usual, Atlanta won.

She smirked as Archie crossed the finish line five seconds after she did,

" Atlanta, forty-seven wins, Archie, zero."

Archie gasped for breathe with his hands on his knees, " Gee I had no idea

you were keeping track."

Atlanta laughed, " I'll stop keeping track when you actually win which should

probably be... race #189?"

" Very funny," said Archie, settling himself down on a park bench, " I'm not

the one with the inhuman speed."

" Then why do you bother racing?" asked Atlanta, her smile growing wider.

" Everybody else is too slow," said Archie.

Atlanta sighed, "I see your point. Race you back to Brownstone?"

Atlanta shrugged, " Okay see ya later!" and she zoomed away so fast, a normal

person would have thought see just disappeared. But Archie was used to it.

He rubbed his aching legs. He knew he shouldn't push his muscles too hard,

but he couldn't help it. He knew he would probably never beat Atlanta in a race,

but he raced her anyways. Not just because he was determined to actually beat her

(he could never resist a challenge), but because it was one way he could enjoy her

company without it being awkward.

Everyone knew Archie had feelings for Atlanta. Well except for Atlanta,

herself. Being the type of girl who didn't date a lot, Atlanta was a little

oblivious to Archie's feelings. Not that Archie minded (he was way to nervous to

ask her out), but sometimes it frustrated him to no end when he left her hints

but she just didn't get it.

Archie sighed. Maybe someday he would tell her everything, but for now they

would just remain friends. With that he got up and walked back to brownstone,

not knowing that the 'someday' might come soon.
