An Excerpt from Letting Go
I knew something good was coming and I couldn’t tear my gaze away. With his fingers wrapped around the football, Dan glanced up at me in the stands and nodded quickly, the biggest grin on his face. He didn’t seem to care that he had about three guys ready to tackle him. The pressure never fazed Dan, because this was his element. The Friday night lights, the roaring crowds, the pigskin in his hands, commanding the field. The dude was a star and I was proud to be his brother. I nodded back and he finally threw the football. It spiraled perfectly through the air, landing straight into Johnson’s tight grip, where he ran the short distance and . . .
“Touchdown!” I jumped from the bench and threw my hands in the air, screaming. Except, my cheering was short-lived. I palmed my back and frowned as a sharp pain stabbed me. I glanced over my shoulder, eyeing the crowd behind me. Did someone throw something? No. They were all too engrossed in the game.
Running a hand over my back that ached with a dull pain, I drew my attention back to the field. Maybe I had been sitting too long?
I prepared to ease past Anna and her sister when she touched my arm. “Where you going?”
I stopped in front of her and smiled. My girlfriend was beautiful and that was an understatement. We’d finally made our relationship official two months ago. We were young, but I’d known her since preschool, basically forever. And I was the lucky guy that got to hold her hand.
“Just going to stretch,” I told her.
“You’re gonna miss the last thirty seconds of the game though.” She cocked her head.
It was safe to say the whole town lived for high school football, and it was no lie that my brother, Dan, was the best quarterback since I didn’t know when.
I glanced over my shoulder at the scoreboard. We were ahead by seven points. I smirked, ready to tell her I wasn’t worried about it, when another weird pain ricocheted around from my back to my side. I flinched. What in the heck?
“You okay?” she asked, steadying her hand on my arm.
I laughed, trying to play it cool, but I honestly wasn’t sure what the hell was up. “I’m good. I’ve been sitting too long I think. I’ll be back.” I didn’t waste another second, slipping past the girls and rushing to the front of the stadium.
I palmed my side and stretched out a little, only to find that made it worse. Putting my hand out, I braced myself against the ticket booth that had already closed. I sucked in a few deep breaths but the ache in my back grew tighter with each inhale. “What the heck?” I yelled, but it was masked by whoops and hollers from the stands.
A grin tipped my lips even though I was trying not to scowl in pain. I was probably more proud of him than my parents and I had missed the end. This was the sixth game of the season and I had missed the end of the last one because Anna needed a soda. I stood in line as James made the winning touchdown, beating our arch rivals forty-seven to forty.
It seemed like a new trend . . . always missing out on the best part, the end.
