    Summary

    “Um, so. How much of that did you hear?” Dex asks him, and luckily Nursey’s got his head buried so far into the freezer that he doesn’t have to cover his pained grimace.

    “Not much, man, don’t worry about it. Hey, you think Bitty would murder us if we used his new oven for store-brand taquitos?”

    Summary

    Writing wasn’t a career Jack saw for himself, ever. Not when he was hockey’s boy wonder. Not when he was a 19-year-old NHL rookie, just trying to play through his anxiety until he couldn’t anymore. Not when he came back and led his team to a Stanley Cup win, and had two more good years before a torn ACL ended his career. Not even when he went to college and took a creative writing class because he needed one more elective to graduate.

    It wasn’t until, on the advice of his therapist, he picked up a notebook and pen and started recording his feelings about his childhood and too-short NHL career that he realized he enjoyed writing, was maybe even good at it.

    Summary

    On Jack Zimmermann’s 16th birthday, his parents have The Talk with him over cake and coffee.

    He’s known it’s coming, of course. Everyone knows that 16 is the magic year, the year you’re finally able to watch your soulmate video. Jack is ambivalent about the milestone. He has classmates and teammates who found out right away, which just seems silly. He doesn’t know why he needs to do this now. It’s not like he’s going to marry his soulmate tomorrow.

    Summary

    “How’d I get lucky enough to wake up next to you twice in one day?” Bittle asks, his voice still hoarse with sleep.

    Jack ticks the events of the day off on his fingers. “Five a.m. wakeup call. Delayed flight. Spilled coffee. Screaming baby. Turbulence. Wrong rental car …”

    “Okay, okay. Maybe luck has nothing to do with it, but I sure am glad you’re here.”

     

    Sometimes, the only good thing about a terrible day is spending it with the one you love.
