Hooking: When a player impedes the progress of an opponent by “hooking” him with his stick.
I’m Alex Kosinski, left wing for the Austin Amurs. Hooking was my penalty. It’s never something I set out to do, but it happens. After all, it’s hockey.
Hockey is life. Getting traded was a kick to the nuts, but at least I was still playing. It was all that mattered.
Our relationship was forbidden, but I didn’t care—I hadn’t run from a fight yet.
I had her right where I wanted her, until everything crashed around me. My past came back to bite me in the ass and I was faced with getting kicked off the team. Now, I’m trying to pick up the goddamn pieces.
I’m not going to choose between her or hockey. I want it all. Because despite everything, she’s the best thing I’ve ever hooked.
