Few things fester disappointment more than finding out someone wasn’t something they claimed to be. Poor Alexa and Jayden already felt the growing doubt.
“He said he could play?” Alexa said.
“Yeah. Said he was good at stickhandling, too,” Jayden told his sister as their new recruit missed the puck and nearly fell. It wasn’t moving.
“What position does he play?”
“Defense, I think.”
Alexa’s face drained of color at that. “Can’t we stick him on the bench?”
Jayden shook his head. “Only if you want to forfeit.”
Alexa groaned. “Sure you don’t want to play goal?”
“Nah, your turn.”
