Eloise is the female version of a rugby player. A competitive equestrian rider herself, she knows exactly what the boys go through. She's had to work to where she is now; the top ranking equestrian in the nation. While it usually keeps her pretty occupied, El somehow finds time to make it to all of the rugby games. Fiercely competitive in everything from school to sports to boys, not many girls see her as a friendly face. She often isolates herself from the group too, finding herself to be above the other rugby wives.

Eloise reached out and grabbed Joey’s hand and he intwined there fingers together, swinging there arms back and forth in time with their steps, she giggled, her brown hair falling out of the style that made it pulled off her face. “Race you to the park?” she raised her eyebrow and before even giving time to reply she took off at full speed, not caring that her skirt could fly up at any minute.
El turned around on her heel when she reached the park that was opposite her fathers house, to be greeted by Joey who had managed to catch up, “You won!” he laughed before wrapping his arms around her waist. El knew that Joey would always let her win at everything, because even though she hated to admit it, she was competitive about everything and losing was not something that went down well with El.
“I know, of course I did, I’m Eloise Kepstra, winning is in my blood.” She joked lightly poking Joey in the chest, as he let go of his grip around her waist before lightly kissing her lips. “I have to go to training now,” she sighed, twirling a strand of hair around her index finger.
“Baby, can’t you just miss training, you’re riding a horse around, you’ve been doing it since before you could walk, I’m sure that missing it once won’t hurt.”
“No it will, now you’d never miss rugby training would you?” she glared at him, she didn’t understand sometimes how training for equastrian was different to training for rugby, they were just as important in her eyes, obviously not in others though.
El smiled as her boots tapped on the cement road, before reaching the door of her father’s house she sighed, letting herself in running up the stairs and getting ready for ‘training’ which she was doing by herself in the ring in her backyard.
Kicking her riding boots on the dirt around the ring, El walked towards the stable where her beautiful stallion was waiting for her to ride, she lifted her head up, to prove to herself that she was confident, if she didn’t think she was going to do well, no-one else would either. Eloise smiled when trotting out on her stallion into the ring to see Joey standing on the outside wanting to watch her, he was way to much to ask for, and she knew that a thousand times over.
“You have rugby practice, you need to go!” El demanded, feeling little guilt inside for treating her boyfriend in that way.
“It’s not for an hour El you need to relax” Joey mumbled, lifting himself up to sit on the top of the barrier creating the ring.
“I just don’t want you to be late, I’ll see you at you’re game tonight? I promise.” She lent on the side of her horse to kiss Joey’s cheek. “Now go!” she shooed him, and continued to ride around in circles.
“I don’t need a promise from you, you’ve never missed a game,” Joey laughed before jumping off the fence, and into the ring.
“You know me to well Jo,” El murmured loud enough for him to hear, she furrowed her eyebrows when he ended up in the ring, she didn’t like things not going as she planned.
“Just teach me to ride today? You’ve been saying you would for ages!” Joey whined, grabbing her left hand which was free from the reins.
“Hop up on the horse, thank goodness I don’t weigh heaps, poor bugger wouldn’t be able to hold us otherwise.” El joked but saw Joeys, hurt face as he pulled himself up to sit in front of her, “Muscle weighs more than fat baby,” she whispered into his ear, and knew he was smiling from ear to ear, those little compliments meant a lot to them.
El taugh Joey the basics of riding that she was honestly surprised he didn’t know what to do. “Come on it’s time to go to you’re game.” She smiled before leading the horse into the stables quickly and meeting Joey at her front door.
“You look beautiful, as always.” Joey brushed a strand of hair off Els face, before grabbing her hand and leading her to the car too go to the first rugby game of the season.
“You’re going to play amazing tonight, I can feel it.”
“I hope so.”
