This work is an alternate universe take on the characters in A. L. Heard’s stand-alone novel Hockey Bois, which is currently available on Amazon and will be available on the Duck Prints Press website in the next few months.
“Don’t give me that look,” Gail teased. “Just because your crush texts me and not you doesn’t mean you should be jealous.”
Brady offered her a constipated smile and let her pull him through the crowd. He didn’t argue with her, and he was thankful she’d misunderstood his unease. Yes, he was a little jealous about the Nick thing. Brady’s crush on Nick was well known to their teammates even though Nick (thankfully) remained unaware. Over the years they’d played together on the ice, Brady had never worked up the courage to ask him out.
But no, that wasn’t why his hands were clammy and butterflies danced in his belly. The unfortunate truth was… Brady didn’t like haunted houses.
