An excerpt from Rookie Season
He shared about missing his mother’s last days because he had been out on the road with his AA team, and how he regretted it. I thought about telling him about my grandfather, but I didn’t. I knew I would cry and there was no way I wanted to cry right then. I did tell him, though, about how my dad left when I was six, and I was raised by my mother and her father, my grandfather.
And we talked about baseball – how it was my first love, how he only really felt comfortable and at home out on the field, how I hadn’t missed a Giants home game in 10 years, how excited he was to finally be playing in the majors.
There was a pause again and we were silently looking at each other. I was thinking how comfortable it was just to be quiet with him, how I didn’t feel like I needed to entertain him… when he leaned forward and kissed me.
It was gentle and tentative at first, then it became more aggressive and forceful. My mind went blank for a moment. I leaned toward him and he wrapped his arm around me, pulling me closer. His kiss just pulled me in. Any hesitance I’d had about him evaporated, and I knew I’d never be the same.
