Teaser Tuesday: Melting Away the Ice by Mary Smith
So, I figured that my first post should be a teaser post!! What a great way to start off my new site, right?
So, here you go: (please remember this is not edited)
Just then another set of doors opened and several men came out. Well they aren't that bad looking, I thought, for guys missing most of their teeth. The crowd rushed towards them with excitement and sharpies. I stood there and watched as each player posed for pictures and signed whatever was handed to them. I never saw a player complain or even seem annoyed by it.
"You shouldn't miss the opportunity to meet them," a male’s voice said next to me. I jumped with a start. I didn’t even realize that anyone was around me. It was then I saw the exit door was ajar and I could feel the brisk cold outside.
"I am fine. I don't need to meet them," as I quickly looked up at him. He had to be at least 6'2” with dark hair but I quickly turned away.
"Not an Eagles fan?” he asked.
“Not a hockey fan," I stated back. I search for Rachel in the crowd. I spotted her bouncing all around getting a t-shirt signed she was wearing under her jersey.
"Not a hockey fan. That can't be true," he scoffed.
"Nope it is true. I do not like hockey," I shifted uncomfortably. In my head I was trying to figure out a way to run away from him. Will I always be this uncomfortable around all men?
"Wow, I don’t think I have ever met someone who did not like hockey, especially at a hockey meet and greet,” I could hear the laugh in his condescending tone. I just nodded still looking anywhere but at him.
