As Jackson said, the bar we went to was quiet and the vibe was peaceful. This was new to me and the bar had my curiosity piqued. I believed it was true when people said that birds of the same feather flocked together. Like Jackson, his friends were also an outgoing and cheerful lot.
After getting to know them, I found out that the group actually formed their own amateur sports team. They would gather for some games whenever they had time.
“I really like sports too! I always feel good after a good workout.” Despite how exercising could be tiring, doing sports helped me destress.
One of them in a grey baseball attire nudged Jackson on the shoulder. “I didn't know your girlfriend plays sports too. I bet she's as good as you.”
Jackson elbowed him and lowered his voice. “Erica and I are just friends.”
I knew friends like to joke between themselves, and it was not like they had any bad intentions, so I just shrugged and smiled.
