EM-Drabbles – Ninety-Three

Mud sticks.

Gemma thought about that as she worked to wash the mud from her soccer kit. There was a big game next weekend and there might be scouts looking to spot the best players.

But mud sticks and even though  everyone knew she was the best player on the team she doubted she would be chosen.

The fans still shouted it at her, even though she won the court case. Even though she had proved jealousy made Olivia claim Gemma had tried to grope her, proved she was not in the changing room at that time.

But mud sticks.
