Synopsis: Before the Prescott family became big in the hockey world, there was just Noah Prescott, fighting for a spot on an NHL roster. Never did he imagine a simple note from a shy fan would speed up his world.
Ryleigh Scott had an issue talking to men, but she knew she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk to Noah — potentially negative labels, be damned. Never did she imagine a simple note would start what could only be described as the beginning of the rest of her life.
This is Noah and Ryleigh — before the NHL contract, before the kids, before going back home.
This is Noah and Ryleigh from the beginning.
“Good luck, Press.”
“Pussy whipped, man. Pussy whipped.”
The last was given to him with a broad smile and a slap on the shoulder. Coming from his best friend, the reminder from many years ago held very little heat.
“You better show your ass this summer at the lake house, Teague,” Noah told him, pointing his finger at the goaltender as the man continued walking away.
“Boating, cliff jumping, beer, and fire? You bet your soon to be atrophying ass I’ll be there.”
Noah chuckled and shot Teague Ketterhagen the bird before looking at his locker for the last time.
He stuffed his last jersey in his duffle.
Left his helmet in its cubby.
Tied the laces of his skates together for easier carrying.
In the back corner of his locker was a picture from ten years ago, and another from the previous Christmas. With a smile, he gently peeled them off the wood walls and put them in one of his skates. Last, he peeled the PRESCOTT from the top of his locker and put that in his skate as well.
With one last look around the now empty locker room, he breathed in deep and smiled to himself. Most of these men were friends. Friends he would see again.
But right now?
Right now, Noah was going home.
ABOUT MIGNON MYKEL
Mignon is a twenty-something (…getting awfully close to thirty-something) who resides in Wisconsin. An avid reader since her preschool days, she ‘blames’ her mother for teaching her to read during that all-important time during a forming brain. Some of her earlier memories of reading include her mother buying her a book at the mall — and finishing the book before they even returned home.
Writing happened soon after the reading started. Her first writing piece can be found in a box of other important papers from growing up. It’s about an apple who was her friend, but she had to eat.
The first series Mignon started to write was about a close family of one brother and his three younger sisters. She started writing this family and their friends in 2005, but as soon as the Prescott family took over her mind, the Ashbys fell silent. Maybe someday we’ll all hear from the Ashbys, but those Prescotts…. The Prescotts are excited to have their stories told.
