    Summary

    Jack flies to Las Vegas in the window seat, Alicia beside him and Bob across the aisle. Jack feels too big for even the width of first class seats, and he can’t imagine how his father feels with those shoulders that have held up teams and Cups and towns, but Bob is asleep beneath an Aces ball cap pulled down over his eyes.

    Kent naps in his childhood bedroom, which hasn’t been his since before the Q. Spare file boxes clog the corners. Posters of Gretzky and Rudy Galindo and Britney Spears gaze over his sleeping head while in the kitchen his mother opens up bottles and pours them down the sink-- a six pack of beer, a week-old half-full Chardonnay, a bottle of cheap whiskey she’d gotten as a present. Empty glass hits empty glass and shatters at the base of the recycling bin-- contained explosions. At the folding table in the kitchenette, Kent’s little sister turns up the music in her earbuds and tries to concentrate on the molar mass of carbon.

    What happens is this: Jack goes first in the draft, takes an Aces jersey in shaking hands, and Kent goes home to New York.

    Summary

    “Corporal Kenny,” Jack huffed into Kent’s ear. The arms around his waist tightened.

    “Captain Jack,” Kent teased right back. “You outrank me, Zimms.”

    Summary

    “I—Lord,” Bitty moans, covering his face with his hands because his embarrassment is catching up to him. “Five minutes ago I didn’t like you,” he mumbles in distress.

    Parse chuckles, sounding as shaken as Bitty feels. “You could still hit me if you wanted—it might make you feel better.”

    “Hey,” Jack says in surprise when Eric opens the front door. He turns around in his desk chair, “You’re home early?”

    Eric sneezes.
