16 year old, Patrick Kane, didn't have the perfect life, and at this point in his life he had given up on all hopes for it. Every day, every semester, of every school year in every class Patrick would engage four digits numbers into his desk, or anything that he could. The number of the school's hockey captain, Jonathan Toews, and the number he wore long ago. When he was young he played, and then his parents decided they wanted more kids, then Pat got hurt, throwing anything he had with hockey out the window. Toews and him did play once together, and they were close, but once Toews' friends, and the whole world, found out that Patrick was gay, he wasn't close to anyone anymore. Little did Patrick know someone else was engraving the same exact thing '1988'.
