Chick becomes Lehigh’s first-ever alumnus named a Major League Lacrosse All-Star
BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Following a record-breaking career in the Brown and White, recent Lehigh men’s lacrosse alumnus and Dallas Rattler’s rookie Craig Chick has been named a Major League Lacrosse All-Star, as announced on Monday. Just seven games into his MLL career, Chick currently stands second on the Rattlers in groundballs (23) and tied for third in caused turnovers (8). He becomes the first-ever Lehigh alum named an MLL All-Star.
The 2019 All-Star Game will be played on Saturday, July 27 at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium and will be televised live nation-wide on ESPN2. Gametime is set for 7 p.m. It will be a homecoming of sorts for Chick, whose hometown is nearby Edgewater, Md. Chick also previously played club lacrosse for the Annapolis Hawks.
A second-round draft pick by the Rattlers, Chick has seamlessly transitioned to the professional game. His caused turnover total is tied for seventh in the entire league while his groundball total is ninth among non faceoff specialists. Among his highlights was being named the Dallas Rattlers’ Player of the Game after tallying four groundballs and three caused turnovers on July 7 vs. the Boston Cannons.

While at Lehigh this past season, Chick became Lehigh’s highest USILA All-American in 93 years. Chick was named to the second team, one year after garnering USILA honorable mention laurels and he is a two-time second team Media All-American (as a junior and senior). He was named to the USILA North-South All-Star Game and was named a Senior CLASS Award first team All-American. Chick finished his senior campaign with 42 caused turnovers, breaking his own school record for a third straight year and breaking the all-time NCAA record for his career – finishing with 160. As a freshman, Chick had 37 to lead the nation then posted a program-record 40, 41 and 42 over the next three seasons, respectively. In the Patriot League Championship Game vs. Army West Point, Chick had three caused turnovers to break the previous mark of 158 held by Detroit’s Jordan Houtby. Chick was named Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week three times during his senior campaign and at the end of the regular season, garnered first team All-League honors for a third straight year.
Lehigh ended 2019 with a 9-8 record, advancing to its second straight Patriot League Championship Game and fifth in the last eight years. Despite facing several significant injuries, including to key players, the Mountain Hawks battled and went on to beat three nationally-ranked opponents and give themselves a chance until the very end.

Is Ned Crotty The Best Lacrosse Player In The World Right Now?
Winning an MLL scoring title doesn’t make you the best lacrosse player in the world automatically, but a very strong argument can be made that this year’s winner, Ned Crotty, is the best lacrosse player in the world, at least right now. Let’s examine this assertion, and see if Sir Nedwick Crotty VII is truly the best our game has to offer.
By now, we all know Ned Crotty finished with 50 points to Paul Rabil’s 49 and Brendan Mundorf’s 45. It was a down to the wire finish, and the title was decided in the last game of the season. Originally, the MLL’s point tracker (Pointstreak) said Rabil had won, but they went to the tape, and in the end, it was Ned Crotty who won the title. Ned did it with one more game than Rabil, and one more game than Mundorf (12 games versus 11), and as opposed to Rabil (who is a middie), Crotty is an attackman. So yes, there are differences between the players, and how they scored their points, so we’ll have to go deeper than just looking at who put up the most points. We need to look at HOW they did it, and what that meant for their respective teams.
He’s also Brine’s BIGGEST name, by far.

Paul Rabil is the most obvious choice for top player in the game right now. He dominates lacrosse media and sponsorships, and is the defacto face of the MLL. He’s even a big name in the NLL, where he plays as more of a transition player, simply because of who he is. He is Paul Rabil, and you’ve all heard him roar. But PR99 also plays for the Boston Cannons, and they are simply a LOADED team right now. They have initiators, shooters, finishers and everything else. Ryan Boyle, Max Quinzani, Matt Poskay, Kevin Buchanan and Brad Ross make a formidable offense without Rabil, so when you add him into the mix, the Cannons O is extremely strong. I’m not trying to take anything away from Rabil here, but he certainly plays for a team that has a lot of options.
Brendan Mundorf was, in my eyes, the best dodging attackman in the game for the past 2 years. His sense of timing, his ability and willingness to go HARD to the cage and his fearlessness all made him extremely dangerous. His skill and ability to dodge lefty by right-handed defenders was beyond impressive. And he hasn’t lost a step. He’s still one of the best in the game. But like Rabil, Mundorf is also surrounded with talent when he plays for the Denver Outlaws. Guys like Max Seibald. Drew Westervelt, Peet Poillon, Billy Bitter and Bill McGlone surround Mundorf, and if those names don’t take some of the pressure off of Mundorf, I don’t know what would.
Is the supporting cast out in Denver and in Boston helpful to Rabil and Mundorf? Undoubtedly. And while it’s not the only factor for them scoring as much as they do, it certainly helps. Now when you look at the Rochester Rattlers, you don’t get quite the same impression. The six players (including Rabil) on the Cannons are all in the top 17 scorers of the MLL. They also have 3 players in the top 8. The six players on Denver are all in top 36 of MLL scorers, which isn’t that impressive, but they do have 3 in top 20, and the depth of Denver’s scoring is well balanced as guys like Connor Martin, Brian Langtry and Terry Kimener are basically after thoughts.
Rochester, on the other hand, has only two players in the top 20 for scoring, and besides Ned Crotty, their top scorer is Matt Striebel with 25 points out of the midfield. He ranks 18th in the league, and that makes for a big gap in scoring punch. While Rochester does have 6 players in the top 31 (a little better than Denver), they are mostly towards the bottom of that list, and many are first, or second year Pros. These guys are not the experienced, battle-tested Pros that play in Denver or Boston. They are recent college grads, and even though they have been dropped into starting roles, the evolution of many of these guys as players is far from complete.
So yes, Ned Crotty played one more game than Rabil or Mundorf, but he also did so on a far less talented team. That’s just reality. But Ned Crotty beating Rabil by a single point, and then saying that makes Crotty the best, is still pretty meaningless, even if the playing field was completely level. So what am I saying here? I like Ned Crotty’s style of play the best. I like what he brings to the table the most. He can do it all, does so with a flair and at times, just makes people look silly. Both Rabil and Mundorf can do similar things, but with Rabil it’s usually a show of brawn and power, whereas with Mundorf it’s more of a hard dodge where he forces his defender to commit one way or the other.
Ned Crotty, to me, is just a little bit different, and in my eyes, just a little bit better. He makes players around him better, electrifies the crowd, and is always the focal point of the opposing defense. Big, hacky players, like Jack Reid of the Boston Cannons struggle to defend him mightily, and I don’t know if there is a better example than the 1:08 mark of the recent Lax. com video featuring the Rattlers and the Cannons. As Reid winds up for one of his patented slap slashes, Crotty just dices him up, and play like this is exactly what the MLL needs, and what a player needs to be successful in the league. Crotty finishes the play with a one-handed wrap shot as he moves away from the cage. The Cannons tried to counter this by putting the fleet-footed PT Ricci on Crotty, and even he struggled a little to keep up. Ned Crotty definitely has the quicks.
But he’s not just a dodger, and if the slide had been on point, you can guarantee that Crotty would have found the open man. He did so 21 times during the regular season, and as he is often initiating from X, you know a lot of these weren’t just catch and pass or “move the ball along” assists. Crotty created, and made his teammates better.
While I would say that RIGHT NOW, at this very moment, Ned Crotty is the best player in the world, I can certainly see why people would argue with that assessment. His team finished 2-10 in the MLL. He didn’t run away with the scoring title. Maybe he got to take more reps than the other guys BECAUSE he was the best player on his team, and commanded the attention. But as 412 pointed out, Rabil took more shots than Crotty did. Crotty had a better SOG%, and a better scoring percentage when shots did go on goal. BY A LOT. And without him, I seriously doubt that Rochester would have won even one game. In the two games they did win, he went 4 (2,2) and 6 (4,2), while his season average was 4.17 points per game. He had a 7 point game, and never put up less than 2 points, and that only happened once. He scored 3 points or fewer only 4 times. Ned Crotty was dominant, and he was consistently so. Rabil was a little more erratic with more 7 and 2 point games, while Mundorf was even more erratic putting up 10 points in the first game of the season, and then putting up 1, 1, and zero points in other games.
I’ll take consistent awesomeness over jumpy, and at times, hyper production any day. The latter make headlines, the former win Championships. Ok, that was a total generalization, but the choice of “best player” is pretty personal and biased, so everyone has to make certain assumptions. I’ve just told you one of my big ones. Consistency is key. And this is really my lower-level basis for selecting Crotty as top dog. He just shows up. All the time. And by him “just showing up”, I mean that he dominates.
Ned Crotty has perfored at every level of field lacrosse. He was the best in college. The Tewaaraton and Duke’s first ever National Title in Men’s Lacrosse are proof of that on paper. If you saw him play in college, you have all the proof you would ever need stowed away in your memory. Remember when he played for Team USA in Manchester in 2010? He scored the game typing goal against Canada, and the eventual game winner to win Gold for the US. He scored 13 points to finish 4th on US team behind Mundorf, a Leveille and a Powell. Rabil was huge in the World Games as well for the US, but Crotty certainly made some noise, and the important thing is that they won it all as a team. And Crotty fit seamlessly in with this group, as the youngest player to boot.
Crotty at Duke… dominating.

I would not have written this post last season. Crotty’s 2010 MLL season was certainly good, especially for a rookie, but it wasn’t clear that he was going to adapt to the MLL. Well after this year, any doubt whatsoever has been removed from the equation. He has proved he is a force to be reckoned with, and should be a HUGE boost to Team USA in 2014 in Denver.
I don’t like to jump to conclusions, and I’ve thought about this for a while. With certainty, I can call Ned Crotty the best field lacrosse player in the world right now. And while I can see why others would disagree, or why they would say it’s too early to say this, or ask why I didn’t talk about box lacrosse players (we’ll save that for another day!) I actually think it just became true, or at least arguable. But from watching him play, I’d say it’s just the truth.

Lacrosse wrangles Rattlers – Valley Ventana
With the stands packed to the brim, fans and parents cheering for the team, the varsity lacrosse squad takes to the field. Seniors Jacob Cox, Wyatt Tomallo, Jared Walker, Aaron Clark, and Matt Kollmansberger take their last stand in one of the most anticipated matchups of the season, Reagan.
Sophomore faceoff midfielder, Will Ford lines up for the face off. He clamps the ball viciously as soon as the referee blows his whistle. Moments later the standout sophomore puts the ball in the back of the net to give the Rangers a crisp 1-0 lead. The Rattlers are stunned, as the Rangers continues to bury the lead with multiple scores coming from attackman Aaron Clark and Ian Feely. The team was in control and dominated the Rattlers into oblivion.
“Everything was going well for our team, we were all on the same page making it really fun.” said Clark.
The Rangers defense bombarded the Rattlers offense with huge hits coming from defensemen Wyatt Tomallo, Sam Garibay, and Conner Cuellar. The team’s defense held the Rattlers to a mere five goals toward the end of the first half, completely shutting down Reagan’s best attackmen and regional superstar Conner Williams. Physicality became the motivation for the Rangers, as the Rattlers were unable to fire back after hits from Tomallo and Garibay weakened Reagan’s drive. Senior goalie, Logan Smith disrupted every shot attempted by the Rattler offense, causing Reagan’s coaching staff to panic with multiple timeouts called.
“We played as one and in doing so we were able to beat a tough opponent” said senior goalie Logan Smith.
The team continued to pile on the scores making the final score a 19-9 victory for the Rangers.The team now places first in district with two district games remaining in the season. The team takes on district opponent TMI this Wednesday at 7 p.m. at TMI which very well could secure a district championship for the lax squad.

No. 4 seeded Massachusetts men’s lacrosse returns to Rafferty Stadium in Fairfield, Conn., for the CAA Championship Game against No. 3 Towson Saturday, May 2 at 1 p.m. A win over the Tigers guarantees the Minutemen their 20th NCAA Tournament appearance in program history. All the information needed to keep track of the game follows:
Scouting Towson Men’s Lacrosse
Towson’s stout defense has the No. 3 seeded Tigers back in the CAA Championship Game for the second time in three years as the squad sports a 10-5 overall record, including an 11-8 win over No. 2 seed Drexel in the semifinal round. The meeting with the Minutemen marks the first time the sides have squared off in the CAA Championship Game and the third postseason meeting between the programs, including a pair of CAA semifinal contests.
Starting goalie Tyler White, the CAA Defensive Player of the Year, ranks second in the nation with his 7.18 goals-against average and seventh in save percentage as White turns aside 58. 2 percent of the shots he faces. With White as the backstop, the Towson defense holds the opposition to 7.40 goals per game, the third-lowest total across NCAA Division I on the strength of standout play from close defensemen Mike Lowe, JoJo Ostrander (All-CAA First Team) and Nick Gorman, who own a combined 62 groundballs and 17 caused turnovers.
Joe Seider, a CAA first teamer at attack, provides a team-high 35 points on 29 goals and six assists. He is one of only two Tigers above the 30-point threshold through 15 games alongside Ryan Drenner (16 goals, 17 assists).
Shawn Nadelen is in his fourth season coaching Towson and holds a 35-28 overall record. Nadelen guided the program to the 2013 CAA Championship and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The squad has a winning record in each of Nadelen’s last three seasons, with 10 wins apiece in 2013 and 2015.
Last Meeting: No. 18 Towson 6, UMass 3; March 28, 2015
UMass tallied advantages in shots, faceoffs, groundballs and caused turnovers, but was unable to leave No. 18 Towson’s Johnny Unitas Stadium with a win as the Tigers defeated the Minutemen, 6-3. Grant Whiteway scored twice in the loss while Zach Oliveri made nine saves in net. The loss – the lowest scoring game on the season for Massachusetts – ended a three-game winning streak.
Towson opened with three consecutive goals before Whiteway put UMass on the board with five minutes, nine seconds remaining in the second quarter. The Tigers bumped their lead back to three goals before the halftime break and added another tally for a 5-1 advantage midway through the third quarter.
Whiteway scored with 4:52 to go in the third and Nick Mariano added a man-up tally near the 11-minute mark of the fourth to bring the Minutemen back within 5-3; however, UMass was unable to pull closer the remainder of the way.

UMass Men’s Lacrosse In The CAA Championship
UMass men’s lacrosse makes its fifth appearance in the CAA Championship during six years with the league. The Minutemen joined the CAA ahead of the 2010 season and won the league title in 2012. The squad has another appearance in the championship game in 2011 and exited the tournament in the semifinal round during 2010 and 2013. Their five appearances stand tied with Drexel (2010, 2012-15) and Towson (2010, 2012-15) for the most in the span. The Maroon and White own a 4-3 all-time record in the event.
How We Got To Where We Are
Seeding for the CAA Championship took until the final game of the regular season to set in 2015. When Drexel upset Towson in the last contest of the CAA slate, the Dragons earned the No. 2 berth and bumped Towson down to No. 3. The Minutemen were slotted fourth while Fairfield earned the No. 1 as a result of Towson’s loss.
Drexel and Towson squared off for the second consecutive week during CAA Championship semifinal action and the Tigers earned their revenge through an 11-8 win over the Dragons. The Minutemen upset Fairfield during Thursday’s nightcap, 9-8, to set up the first CAA Championship Game between No. 3 and No.4 seeds since the 2011 season.
The current CAA Championship contest is the first such with Towson and UMass facing each other. The squads previously met during the semifinal round on two occasions – during a 13-6 Towson victory on May 5, 2010 and a 10-3 UMass win on May 2, 2012.

90,000 The funniest and coolest Chinese novelties
There are always a lot of people around them, but they pay attention not for their potential, but for their similarity with well-known models. China has always been famous for such cars. Such is the local philosophy: if a person likes things of a certain form, then they must be given to him. Even if you have to steal the design for that. True, sometimes one wonders: why do they buy “fake” cars in the PRC if they never compare with the original?
Well, the BJ brand – the guys just took and copied the German Mercedes-Benz G-class and the American Jeep head-on, endowing them with ridiculous features like chrome mirrors.But these cars, at least from a distance, look like cool SUVs. But why buy a Hawtai crossover, a copy of the Hyundai Santa-Fe, produced many years ago?
But not everything in China is limited to copying. There is also improvisation – senseless and merciless. Take the Ranz RF-EA1 for example. At first glance, everything is fine – it’s worth a supercar of a futuristic shape … But this 10×10 meter square is the whole stand! There is no information about the car or company representatives! A great way to save money! Isn’t it an idea for those who “squeezed” money to participate in the Moscow Motor Show?
Other Chinese companies prefer to remodel cars in a way that makes them hard to recognize. For example, G-Patton has made a line of “combat” off-road vehicles: an explosive mixture of military vehicles from the Second World War and “Mad Max” has turned out. But, despite their formidable appearance, they have no armor! The question of whether someone will buy it remains open.
The cherry on the cake is the OED Powertrain logo. As the saying goes, if you can’t copy everything, at least make a similar symbol. The only good news is that a brand of cars with good engines was taken as a basis …
Have you laughed? And now…
Do you think that all cars in China are “slag”? No matter how it is! There are also very interesting specimens. Take, for example, the Hongqi brand (translated as “Red Flag”), which produces cars for top officials of the state. In fact, this is an analogue of our project “Cortege”, and it has existed for a long time. It should be noted that the Hongqi company in every possible way emphasizes that it has nothing to do with the European or Japanese auto industry (and there is nothing to say about America). Like, Hongqi is a real Chinese brand for ideologically well-bred Chinese.That is why even the brand name on the stand was written exclusively in hieroglyphs (although, for our part, we note that Hongqi belongs to the FAW concern, which has many joint ventures with global companies).
At the moment in the Hongqi range there are three “members” at once, which have rather simple and understandable names: L5, L7 and L9. The last car is the coolest in the whole of the Middle Kingdom. This huge sedan with a length of 6385 mm is able to provide its passengers with maximum comfort, and under its hood is a V12 engine with a capacity of “about 400 hp.with.”. More detailed information about this vehicle could not be obtained – it is possible that it generally belongs to the category of state secrets. The L7 model is slightly less than the “nine” – its dimensions are equal to 6095 mm, and the L5 generally seems to be “crumb” – only 5.5 m. However, here you need to remember right away – even the L5 turns out to be much longer than the same Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
But if Hongqi exploits the retro theme, then the Roewe Vision-R looks to the future. It is a Chinese sports car with a good design, futuristic interior and 3.6-liter V6 engine (240 hp).from.) under the hood. And the model is based on a platform from Buick LaCrosse. And looking at this car, I just want to ask: why doesn’t our AvtoVAZ do this?
Another cool “Chinese” is the Chery FV2030 concept. As conceived by the designers, in the not very distant future, crossovers will have just such an appearance and will be able to move in an unmanned mode. Although the creators have not forgotten about the driver at all, and, according to their idea, he will be able to get real pleasure from driving such a car. Of course, if he wants to.
Well, our selection is completed by LeSEE – an autonomous electric car, which was created by the Chinese together with Aston Martin. The car is aimed, no less, at competing with the Tesla Model S. And these are not just loud statements, the Chinese have all the tools for this.

How did basketball get its name? Everything about everything. Volume 1
How did basketball get its name?
Guess which game in the United States has more viewers than any other? You will probably be surprised when you find out that this is basketball.
Basketball is often called an “international game” as it is played in every civilized country. However, basketball, unlike some other games, has not evolved gradually over the centuries. It was invented by one person, James Naismith, a Canadian by birth, in 1891.
Naismith wanted to get the students of Springfield Sports School in Massachusetts interested in some new game. He combined the Native American hockey-like lacrosse game with British football to create a game that could be played indoors.
In the game Naismith invented, you couldn’t use a stick like in lacrosse or kick the ball like in football. The ball is passed here from player to player or is dribbled by one player and thrown at the target only with his hands. Initially, a hanging wicker basket was used as a target, so Naismith called the game “basketball” (“basketball” in English means “basket”).
In basketball, as in many other games, the player’s place is determined by his specific abilities.Those who are good at getting points with well-aimed throws are usually used in offense, where they attack the opponent’s ring.
The center player is usually very tall. He must be able to pass the ball to a team-mate during the initial toss. His height should also give the team “backboard control”, which means keeping the ball in sight as it bounces off the ring or backboard after an inaccurate shot.
Defenders must in every possible way prevent the opponent’s forwards from winning points, so they must be agile, cunning and at the same time take part in the attacks of their team.

========== Chapter 1. Calm Before the Storm ===========
Liam looks down for just a second, and this is his doom. When Theo approaches him, he no longer has a chance. He is already on top before he even manages to put his elbow in defense.
– Are you sure … is it safe? Liam fidgets, trying to break free of Theo’s steel trap.
– Safe? Theo grins ominously.- Let’s see. Right now, the chimera that crushed you presses its three-inch claws to your throat, and no one here will hear your screams. His breath tickles the sensitive skin on Liam’s neck, distracting as hell. “I would say this is as far as possible from the concept of“ safe ”,” he concludes with pleasure.
“I mean is it safe to do this, given that Scott will start looking for me in less than an hour.” Liam stirs again, wriggling and trying to find a breach in Theo’s defenses.“And I still have one superiority over you.
– What is it? Theo asks, tightening his grip, and laughs as Liam wheezes softly and painfully as his ribs are squeezed. “This is definitely not a technique or experience.
“Possibly,” Liam agrees, then kicks Theo with his left foot and takes advantage of it by changing their positions and pinning Reiken to the ground. Beta raises an eyebrow and smiles triumphantly. – But I’m still more creative.
“Desperate try,” Theo hisses as Liam kneels on him to shift all of his weight and climb off Theo.They begin to circle around each other again in the middle of the clearing.
Recently, they increasingly visit this clearing hidden in the depths of the forest. The first time was not on the same terms as now. Theo relentlessly pushes the Flock buttons and Liam takes him out into the woods to talk, then they end up completely losing all their peace of mind. They fight for a long time that day, cursing and insulting until both are covered in blood and emaciated. Several small trees are ripped out of the ground in the fight, a few more are trampled into the ground before the last drops of adrenaline and rage roll through his veins, and Liam growls:
– Are we done?
And Theo is surprised to find that, yes, it’s done.They lie there gasping and healing when the chimera laughs and Liam looks at him as if he were insane.
– What? He asks carefully.
Theo turns his head, causing his hair to ride through the mud to look at him.
“I needed it,” he admits smugly.
Liam shakes his head in surprise.
“You’re crazy,” he mutters. And tries to stop the smile from making its way to his face. Damn it was fun.
Second time after a failed lacrosse match with Davenford.Not because of the score – Bacon Hills is winning – but because one of the old players walks away and says loudly that they would have won if Brett had been there. It didn’t help that the guy was looking at Liam as he said that. He feels the claws rip through the gloves and closes his eyes, trying to stop the circulation. This does not work. He runs to the showers, Corey screams after him. Liam squeezes the edges of the sink so that he hears the porcelain crumbling. He hears movement behind him and turns to see Theo standing in the locker room.
Their views intersect.
– Want to get out of here? He asks carefully, in a low voice. Liam tries to drown out his screaming mind and fails. “We can go to the forest,” Theo suggests, and as soon as he says these words, it’s not a sentence anymore, it has to happen. Liam nods convulsively, flinches and lets his tension come out.
This time there is even more blood, Liam completely loses control over his second essence, allows himself to turn and feel freedom.This is the part of him that he constantly pushes as deep as possible, and it was nice to just let go of it. He, too, is ruthless and ruthless in his attacks. Theo doesn’t scoff at him for this, doesn’t complain about his lack of self-control, he just fights. He refuses to be just a stationary target, and Liam may want to bless him for that. He doesn’t want to beat someone up and feel guilty afterwards, he just wants to let go of himself and fight. Not a word, only action.
When Theo presses him against a tree, there is so much blood around that it’s hard to tell where whose.
– Are you finished? Theo asks in a whisper.
Most of Liam hates himself for whispering back:
They are sitting on a fallen log – they may have knocked the tree down during a fight, it doesn’t matter – Liam hits Theo hard enough for him to feel it well.
– And what is this for?
Liam looks at him with some embarrassment.
“I needed this,” he admits.
“I noticed,” Theo comments dryly, trying to wipe the blood off his face.
They sit in comfortable silence for a while, before Liam finally asks:
– So are we going to just beat each other now every time we feel like we’re about to break?
Theo rolls his eyes and sighs before looking him straight in the eye and seriously stating:
– This is not beating each other, this is training.
– Training? Liam repeats skeptically.
– Training, – confirms Theo. And then the bastard smiles.
Believe it or not, they sometimes meet after that to practice. They learn from each other, hone movement, technique, use of intuition. The more they fight, the more often they predict each other’s actions, and then the fun really begins – they try to guess the thoughts of the enemy. Other times, when one of them loses control and passes the point of no return, fights become chaotic. They fight fiercely, until they break many bones, until they start to shake and can hardly breathe.And then they are healed. It doesn’t matter what what they do, it works.
It’s about the fourth outing, they pack their things, and Liam changes his torn t-shirt and regrets not getting a biology assignment in his head. Theo sighs in resignation, and Liam thinks that he will tell him to shut up, that he is not interested and will just turn away, instead Theo begins to list:
– Prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase. This is mitosis. The stages of meiosis are the same, but at the end of the telophase, the cells divide twice.So the cells are haploid, not diploid, but chromosomes …
Liam stares at him stupidly, and Theo falls silent.
– Do you need help or not? He finally asks impatiently, and Liam grins.
– Damn right.
After that, Theo often visits Liam’s house after their “training”. Sometimes they play video games or watch movies, sometimes they sit in silence and read, or Liam does his homework and Theo mocks him for his mistakes before helping him fix them.Sometimes they cook – Theo loves to cook. Liam suspects that this may be due to the fact that he only eats fast food and ready-made snacks from the store. Not that he could do anything while living in a pickup truck. Liam starts asking Theo if he wants to stay overnight on the couch, but the chimera always gives him an annoyed look and says that he has everything under control. Now this is a familiar question that Liam asks, already knowing the answer.
Once, returning home, they find Mason’s car in the driveway.
“Oh shit,” Liam mutters under his breath as the man opens the front door. He gave Mason the key to his house a long time ago. He and Theo exchange glances, grab their belongings, and climb out of the pickup.
– Where have you been? – Mason asks impatiently. “You haven’t answered my text messages for hours, and we had to…” He stops, staring at them.
– What? Theo says irritably.
– Why are you both covered in blood? – Mason asks the question so quietly, as if he doesn’t want to know the answer.
