No freaking way.
Georgette Castle tucked the stolen key into her pocket, wincing at the
creak as she opened the apartment door. Empty beer cans skittered along the
floor the farther she pushed, the stale stench of unwashed dude reaching out
and throttling her. Her older brother had tried to warn her. Had she listened?
No. Did she ever listen? Also a definitive no.
This time, though, Georgie had been positive Stephen was mistaken. It
didn’t seem possible that the town’s baseball phenomenon could fall so far so
fast. Just under two years ago, she’d watched Travis Ford hit a World Series
grand slam on live television, along with everyone in town, gathered beneath
the new flat-screen television at Grumpy Tom’s. There had never been a
doubt Travis would go professional after his sterling college career at
No one saw the injury coming. Especially Travis.
After a year of physical therapy and being passed between teams like a
hot potato, Travis had come home to Port Jefferson. Georgie could still see
the heartbreak in his eyes during the sparsely attended press conference
announcing his retirement at age twenty-eight. Sure, he’d been smiling.
Joking about the chance to improve his golf game. But Georgie had been in
love with Travis Ford since she hit puberty and knew his tells. Every
expression on his face was categorized in her memory, his name scrawled on
every other page in her diary, never to be discovered beneath the floorboards
of her bedroom. Five decades from now, when she looked back on her youth,
she would remember Travis standing at home plate on the high school
baseball field, lifting his batting helmet to adjust it, allowing just a glimpse of
dark auburn hair to catch the wind, before covering it back up.
Heroic, gorgeous, bursting with character, and cocky as sin. Travis Ford
What would the after look like?
“Hello?” Georgie called into the dark dwelling. “Anyone home?”
She kicked aside a plastic bag full of takeout containers and closed the
door behind her, advancing into the apartment. Stephen had definitely been
here to see his childhood friend. The untouched health shakes and UV sun
lamp made that obvious. He’d at least tried to reach Travis. So had members
of the church, old baseball coaches, and autograph seekers. Instead of being
coaxed back out into the light, though, he continued to wallow.
Georgie had a better plan.
“Hey, dickhead!” Now in the living room, she stooped down and picked
up a melted pint of ice cream, her lip curling in a smile. Perfect ammunition.
See, Georgie might have reached the ripe old age of twenty-three in
Travis’s absence, but she would always be the pesky little sister. That wasn’t
a label she’d given herself. But she’d heard it upward of a thousand times
growing up and it refused to die. What was a girl to do besides give in and
embrace it? Sympathy hadn’t worked with Travis. Now she’d try her own
method of breaking through to him.
