A semi-pro football player meets a teacher who intrigues him with an offer of a different type of game. This week we pick up after Heath’s teammate has miss fired a pass on the beach to attract two women. After Jordan’s perfect catch, Heath is entranced by her athleticism and beauty. He introduces himself, but hesitates when she asks if he’s on vacation.
Saying he played for the new Triton’s team might be a gamble. “I just started a job with a probationary period and renting a house near here.”
Jordan took note of his right hand before asking, “You wouldn’t rather stay closer to the commercial strip at in Virginia Beach?”
Heath raked his fingers through the sand where he sat. “Naw, got a decent view from the deck and I can come here if I’m feeling social.”
“Are you normally a hermit?” she asked smiling one-sided.
Friendly teasing, he liked her already. Not willing to admit his job was consuming and exhausting, he returned her taunt, “More like picky whom I spend time with.”
