The Comeback Route
Football is everything, but love is the only game that matters.
Twice we’ve been together, and twice we’ve nearly destroyed each other.
This is our last shot at forever—if we’re brave enough to take it.
I thought I made the right decision—the selfless choice—but now it feels like I’ve hurt everyone, including myself. What I thought was true and solid and dependable is disappearing. I’m on my own, and I’m terrified.
Maybe it’s time to find out who I really am, even if that means running away from what I thought I needed. I can’t risk trying again with Leo until I know we have a real chance to make it, even though I can’t picture a future that doesn’t include him.
Once upon a time, not that long ago, I had just about everything I ever wanted. But if there's anything I've learned, it's that life is unpredictable. One twist can change it all, and suddenly, I'm alone. Even football, the one constant in all the insanity, somehow isn't enough anymore, because without her, everything else is empty. Meaningless.
I've got one shot left. One more chance to win her heart. We're not kids now, and I know that being good enough for Quinn isn't some game I can fake my way through. She's more than the prize; she's my reason for living. The world only makes sense when we're together.
And this time, I'm going to do whatever it takes to give us our happy ending.
