"Never" - a 100 word story -

Remember that game
Back in High School
Senior year.
The last of the season
Or, was it the state finals?
The state finals
So hot, the grass drank in the water
From the clack clack clacking sprinklers
Like the town drunk
Two outs, bottom of the ninth
And you hit one over the fence so far
I swear, it's still going
Rounding the bases
Grinning wide as the sky
And you fell to the ground
Threw down your glove
And... and...
Wait. You weren't the batter.
It was you on the mound.
Blowing the save
You never pitched again.
Never.
