    Summary

    For the past month, the man with the baby and the sad blue eyes has been stopping in for a cup of coffee an hour before closing. He always sits in an overstuffed chair in the corner and drinks his coffee while his baby sleeps next to him in the stroller. Sometimes he pulls a book out from the diaper bag he carries with him; other times he just stares straight ahead as if in a daze. He never asks for a refill, always respectfully gathers his things and leaves ten minutes before the shop officially closes. Eric desperately wants to ask him what his story is.

    Summary

    In which Jack doesn't find the courage to confess his love at graduation and Bitty only complicates things by becoming the first out player in the NHL.

    ________

    In the end, it’s pretty anticlimactic. The Falcs are defending divisional champions and the Schooners are coming out of an extremely rough rebuild year with the third worst record in the league. Providence pulls out a 3-1 win in regulation, the only Seattle goal belonging to Eric; a gorgeous snipe in the third that had Jack reflexively cheering from the Falconers bench — something Jack knows immediately will be a highlight more vaulted than the goal itself.

    At the end of regulation, Jack hangs back to catch Bittle before he's ushered off the ice, pulling him into a tight hug that makes the remaining Schooners fans go wild. “Good game, Bits,” he knocks his helmet against Bittle’s and tries to ignore the immediate camera flashes. This was always the plan: two marketing departments eager to dominate the news cycle; It isn't hard to fake enthusiasm because right now Eric Bittle is a perfect amalgamation of Jack’s two favorite things in the whole world: hockey and handsome blondes.

    “Great game, Jack,” Bitty laughs.
