The camera opens on Sway sitting beside Jimmy on the bench in Foot Locker. He’s holding a pair of shoes.
Sway Archer: Finally, the Space Jam 1s. You think I can afford these though?
Jimmy Khoo: We got a whole lotta new money though.
Sway nods and takes a long look at the shoe.
SA: Would have been a lot better if I won the rumble though.
Sway puts the shoe back in the box and looks down to his feet. His old red, black and white Jordan 1s are still in good condition, but they’re wearing away.
Jimmy: I think you think too much.
Sway stares at his feet and begins to drift into his thoughts
2013, August 26th
Sway is sitting at outside of McDonalds, fawning over his new shoes.
SA: Jordan 1s. I’ve wanted these for years!
A young girl walks over, and stands in front of Sway. Her tan skin, and light blonde hair glowing in the summer light. Sway’s eyes light up as he saw her, and he rose to his feet.
SA: Hey Kelly!
Sway Voiceover: Kelly Carruci was the only girl on the block that showed interest in me. Her dad was completely caked. Like, rich-rich. A lawyer or something. She was always dressed nice, even though we lived in a mediocre neighbourhood. Her mom lived in Georgia, and she went between houses. This was one of the weeks she was here. As she started to speak, I just melted at her voice. Soft, but still with a little bit of twang in it.
Kelly Carruci: Bulls colours?
SA: Yeah, just got ‘em today.
KC: They’re nice. Don’t go scuffing them up playing ball.
SA: Nah, these are just for casual stuff. Maybe church.
The two of them chuckle, and Kelly sits down beside Sway.
KC: When you’re done school, you should come by my mom’s place in Atlanta sometime. It’s not as big as my house here, but it’s super cool. We could go roller skating, maybe go shopping. Get some new shoes while you’re down there too!
SA: I can’t be doing that. Gotta save up for everything coming up. I wanna take a trip, maybe go to college.
KC: Don’t worry bout the price. I got discounts now! Just got a job at Foot Locker—
Sway fades out of his flashback, the sound of Kelly’s voice still resonating in his head.
Foot Locker Employee: How’d those shoes fit, my man?
Sway looks up to see a teenage boy in a striped Foot Locker shirt looking at him, hands clasped, smiling. Sway nods, not really paying attention to the shoes anymore.
SA: They’re good, I’ll come back for them soon.
Sway hands the employee the box, and starts walking out of the store. Jimmy goes to the cash and buys his own shoes, then runs out after Sway.
Sway is sitting at the commentary table during the match between Darius and Titanic. Sway is sitting on his phone, looking through outfits on Instagram.
Terry Kohl: So Sway, you’re going to be in a match later tonight, to determine who faces the winner of this match right here.
Sway locks his phone, puts it in his pocket, and nods.
Sway Archer: Yeah, I’ve got a lot on my hands later tonight.
TK: You seem a bit distracted, Sway.
Beast Jackson: That’s because he lacks focus, Kohl, that’s why he lost the rumble!
Sway pays no attention to Beast, and shakes his head.
SA: Terry, I’m fine. I just gotta see who wins this match. Once I know that, and once I win my match, I can focus on how I can win the US title.
BJ: Sway, you’re assuming you’re going to win your match later tonight. Are you serious? You haven’t beaten anybody other than Gamga in a one-on-one match. You lost your debut, as well as the only multi man match you were in! What makes you think you can win?
TK: Now, Beast, let’s be fair, Sway has a tremendous amount of heart and confidence. He’s got just as much a chance of victory as anyone else—
BJ: He’s facing Raiden Sparks for god’s sake, Kohl! In what world, does Sway Archer get a victory over Raiden Sparks?! A former GCW Heavyweight Championship contender! Throw in the fact that Sway has a 1-2 record here in GCW, and Sway’s chances drop drastically. Use that phone of yours, Sway! Call Scott Steiner, he’ll tell you how horrible this is going to go for you!
Sway shakes his head and begins unplugging his headset.
BJ: Jokes aside, you have a miniscule chance of winning later tonight, Sway. What sort of twisted mindset makes you think you can beat Raiden?
Sway looks at the production assistant and shakes his head, mouthing ‘I can’t do this anymore’.
BJ: I’ll ask again, what makes you think you can win later tonight?
Sway slams the headset onto the announce table, startling Beast and Kohl. Sway takes a deep breath, and turns to Beast.
Sway rises from his chair, and heads for the entrance ramp. He goes through the entrance-way, not looking behind him as the bell rings.
Andrew Jordan: Anyone checked my app for approval yet?
