The Penalty Box
"Why do you play hockey?" He asked with a sense of urgency to his voice," Callahan why do you play hockey?"
She shook her head, not able to find the right words," The box," She finally forced out," I used to play for the box."
"Why do you play now?" He asked again.
"I play because I love it, and because I made a promise."
Callahan Smith has been playing hockey her whole life. Although, she spent most of her time in the penalty box. Being the only girl on a boys team, she thought that was the easiest way. That all changed when the team captain stepped in and changed the way Callahan played.
A year later, half way through her last season as a youth hockey player, Callahan and her team are forced to face a tragedy. They only have a few more months to make good on a promise they'd made. It all boils down to the penalty box, after all it only takes one stupid mistake to change the game.
