We had just won the state championships and we all went to Bill’s apartment to celebrate. I was with Lucy, my girlfriend. One minute she’s there and the next minute she’s gone. It’s a crazy party with too much booze and then I remember that I left my jacket at the gym. On the bleachers. Now, school’s only two blocks away from Bill’s but I’m tired. Really tired. I just played my heart out in this game and I want to go to sleep. But you see, there’s something really special in my jacket. A ring for Lucy. It’s not her birthday or even our anniversary but I wanted to get her a present so she would know I love her. It’s really late and the school is locked but I got a key, you see, because sometimes practice is late. So, I’m walking up the stairs, which is dark but I know my way cuz I’ve been in school late before and I see a little bit of light at the end of the hallway…..
