“Oh my goodness, Alena.” Sophie jogged up to me as I approached the exit. “You saved me from hitting the floor.”
“You’re okay, right? I saw that guy stumble into Katie and knew you were going down.” At least Sophie hadn’t seen me scramble to catch her.
“Yeah, I’m totally fine. I have no clue how you caught me so fast.”
Hannah, Melody, Katie, and Micaela came through the door and stopped behind Sophie.
“What did you do out there?” Hannah insisted.
“I don’t know. It happened so fast. I didn’t think. You guys are okay, right? I didn’t hurt you, did I?
“No, it was like one second you were there, and the next you were in the air.”
“You were like a super acrobat,” Melody said.
I tugged my ponytail tight. “I’ve taken gymnastics since I was three. It was instinct.”
“No, you were so fast. One second I saw you above the guys, and then you were under Sophie.”
I took a couple of sideways steps to the door. “Like I said, I’m in the gym twice a week, so”—I cut my eyes to the exit—“we should probably get to class.”
“I hope someone got it on video,” Hannah said. “I know what I saw.”
