Supper went very quickly as stories between Luciana, Mariana, Jessica, Lacey, Macey, and Kacey quickly filled the dining room. The table was packed. June sat at one end while her husband sat across from her on the other end. On one side of table sat the triplets, with the other side being inhabited by the twins with Jessica being sat between them. The stories kept changing from college exploits with Jessica and the triplets to childhood capers from Jessica and the twins. Everyone was laughing and having a marvelous time. Eventually three courses were consumed and a few more rounds of stories were shared thus ending the dinner.
These extra stories allowed Jessica's food to settle; she then asked if everyone was ready to swim. She heard five yes answers. Jessica rushed to get ready. She put on a black bikini that fit her snuggly so that it would not come off too easily. She changed in parent’s bathroom, while the triplets changed in her room, while the twins changed in the guest bathroom. All six ladies emerged in the hallway at the same time. Jessica was greeted by a pair of stunning voluptuous twin beauties dressed in orange sport bras bikinis and a set up dynamic brunette triplets all dressed in powder blue bikinis tightly gripping their sculpted athletic bodies. The triplets looked at Jessica and twins and asked them to show the way.
A door connected to the back entrance of the house opened to a deck that was connected to an above-ground pool. The pool was small and just 18’ by 18’ all around in the shape of a circle. It had a dog out deep end that dropped to 6’ and shallow end that was surprisingly deep at 3’ 8”. Above the center of the shallow hung a goal that was connected to the back of the house that protruded over the shallow end. The entire rim of the goal and its backboard was located just inside the shallow end. The rim was 8’ 6” above the floor of the shallow end.
It was a surprising setup. Lacey was caught rolling her eyes by her sisters as both Macey and Kacey double pinched her to make her behave and not offend Jessica. Lacey couldn’t help it. Lacey was hyped up from Jessica about how awesome her pool was, but it was a most simple setup. Luckily none of the others caught her eyeroll so Jessica could not be offended. As her sisters just finished pinching her out of retribution, Jessica came over and gave them a group hug. As the hug finished, she let them to know that she was going to take on the twins first to show them how the game works before they join in too.
The triplets asked in unison, “Isn’t that going to be unfair for you? We don’t mind jumping in already.” Jessica let them know that it is cool. Very quickly she told them the rules of the game:
1.) Make it take it
2.) Every shot counts as one point unless specified otherwise
3.) Every shot along the back wall among the farthest three poles from the goal count as two points
4.) You are only allowed to hold another person with one hand
5.) Goaltending is allowed
6.) You cannot hold your opponent underwater for more than three seconds at a time. Once resurfacing, if someone calls out to stop, you must not resubmerge them.
7.) If a scrum for a ball breaks out, there is not jump ball. The scrum continues until someone emerges with clear possession of the ball. During a scrum, the one-hand rule is abolished.
8.) Pushing is allowed.
9.) Checking into the sides of the pool is allowed.
10.) The game ends when someone reached 15 points.
11.) Each point starts with the person inbounding the ball. If a person is by their own self, then they will pass the ball to the defender and the defender will then pass it back to them. The pass back does not have to the hands of the individual, but it must be near them. The point starts once the inbounder touches the ball. At that point the defender can try to steal them ball from them immediately.
12.) If you are inbounding the ball to your teammate, you only have five seconds to do so.
13.) You can use your teammate to jump higher in any manner you choose. You are allowed to jump on someone’s back during a scrum.
14.) You must win by two points.
Upon hearing the rules, the triplets realized the pool might not be as boring as Lacey thought. They sat on a built-in bench on the deck and watched the first game ensue. To determine who should get the ball first, the twins took on Jessica in a 2-on-1 thumb war. Jessica’s right hand took on the twins two right hands at the same time. The twins had slightly smaller thumbs than Jessica and were not quite as strong as Jessica’s thumb. Jessica tried her best to keep her thumb as faraway from the center as possible as that is where both twins’ thumbs could converge upon hers. However, in order to pin Luciana’s thumb (the twin with the thumb closest to hers) she had to eventually, try to pin Luciana’s thumb down. In doing so, Mariana’s thumb came over desperately to try to push off Jessica’s thumb of Luciana’s before the count of three was accomplished. Right before three, Mariana was successful in freeing her sister. In doing so, Luciana immediately pushed Jessica’s thumb into their three combined index fingers and right before Jessica was able to pull free, Mariana’s thumb was able to finally get on top of Jessica’s thumb too. Try as she might, Jessica could not escape from the combined twin thumb pin and was counted out to three. Jessica screamed out that she almost had them that time. The twins screamed back, “yeah right and the game began.”
Luciana inbounded the ball at the back of the pool as Jessica guarded her twin. The five second count was about to expire and Luciana desperately tried to get it to her twin. Jessica’s extreme athleticism took over and easily stole the inbounds pass. Mariana, quickly grabbed Jessicas left arm and tried to hold her as her twin was swimming over quickly to try to stop Jessica from reaching the goal. Jessica seeing the oncoming twin and that she was about to outnumbered quickly threw up a shot from just inside the shallow end. The ball easily went in the basket and Jessica was up 1 to 0.
The triplets were amazed at how much of an athlete Jessica was in the pool. The twins were not that far behind, but their voluptuous bodies were no match for the chiseled frame of Jessica as Jessica moved through the water with ease. What originally seemed very unfair to Jessica now seemed as if Jessica stood a chance.
The next point began, Jessica had to inbound the ball. Since she had no teammate, so she had to inbound to a twin. She choose Luciana and Luciana threw the ball a few feet from Mariana. Jessica walked over to the ball and was followed by Luciana. All three women waited for Jessica to try to get the ball. Jessica faked as if she was trying to grab the ball a few times just to throw the twins off. Eventually Jessica actually went for the ball. The twins were not fooled and met her hands at same time as all six hands converged upon the ball at same time.
The scrum was in effect. Jessica’s goal was to try her best to get her hands underneath the four hands of the twins and rip it out of their hands. This was quite difficult to do. The twins eventually gave up being able to rip the ball out of Jessica’s grip and Luciana reached with both of her hands to try to rip Jessica’s left hand off the ball. As this happened, only two of the twins hands were on the ball,. With only two twin hands touching the ball, Jessica just enough time to rip the ball free of Mariana’s grip and made a run for the goal.
As she did so, she felt each of the twins right hands reach out and grab her left wrist. She was pulled backwards towards them and quickly found herself sandwiched between the twins. She held the ball upwards to keep it out of the reach of the twins. Realizing she could not escape the twins, she threw up a shot at the goal. As she did so, she felt each of the twins pull her down with one hand each towards the surface of the water. The combined downward pull was just enough cause her shot to become off balance and it hit the back of the rim and bounced safely towards the center of the pool. As Jessica used her right hand to hurdle over Mariana, she felt Luciana push her completely under the water and then feel Mariana grab and keep her there as Luciana pursued the ball. Jessica tried to push Mariana off her as she watched Luciana (or who she thought was Luciana) make the shot under the goal.
At this point, the triplets realized that this game was going to get interesting real quickly. Jessica’s superior athletic ability was put to the limits by nature’s best teammates. The game continued on for about 15 more minutes. Most all of Jessica’s points came from her stealing the ball and scoring quickly before she could be converged upon after the twins tried to inbound the ball. Most all of the twins’ points came after Jessica scored and setting her up for a group scrum in which Jessica rarely won due to the twins working so well with one another in this situation.
Eventually the final point arrived. The score was tied 14 to 14. Jessica had just scored to tie the game and it was her turn to inbound the ball. She had lost the ability to know who was each twin at this point due to being so tired. She threw the ball to the nearest twin. As on script, the twin threw the ball towards her twin and waited for Jessica to try and acquire it. Both twins had all four hands hovering over the top of the ball and were daring Jessica to try to grab it.
Jessica did not try to fake them out and went all in. As she did, the six handed scrum ensued. Knowing she was about to lose the scrum, she decided to pull the ball underwater and the twins followed her. Jessica could not outmuscle the twins, so she decided to move her entire body towards to the ball and try to encase her arms and legs around it. This was an unexpected move from the twins’ perspective. This move allowed Jessica the opportunity to gain critical surface space around the ball and with the spin of her body she wrestled it free from the twins’ grasp. Before the twins could regroup she quickly kicked off the side wall and streamed quickly towards the back wall. Upon reaching the wall, she quickly jumped off floor and at the top of her jump the ball left her hand as both twins were able to get back to her at the same time and pulled her underwater as the ball threw the air towards the goal. It seemed as if 30 seconds passed as the ball approached the goal. It left no question as to the victor of the game. A rare two point shot swished through as Jessica emerged just in time to see the shot go though much to the twins' dismay. Jessica then shouted towards the triplets, "your next!"
The triplets were impressed with Jessica. They wanted to know when do they get the opportunity to take on Jessica and seemed to embrace the idea of ganging up on her. They let her know that they were excited to kick her ass. Jessica said, “first, I need to rest. Let me and twins take ya’ll on first game so that I can rest. I think that then I will give you the best possible game that I can." Lacey responded back while holding the waists of each of her sisters, "As if! We are going to destroy you and the twins, and then we are going to humiliate you!" Mariana and Luciana came and stood on each side of Rebecca and jointly said jokingly with a little bit of sincerity, "Bring it on bitches!" The first of several all-star showdowns was scheduled.
There can always be one more.
