A is for All-Star

For this year’s A to Z, I will be doing a collection of flash fiction featuring Steven, the MC from Blackbird, from right before he came to Newstead, through his first year there.

A is for All-Star

The ball cracked against the bat as it made contact. I love that sound; the sound of a sure homerun.

“Go, go, go,” my coach yells, like he didn’t recognize the pitch, like he still expects me to do a mad dash to get as many bases as I can.

I glance back at my team. They’re just as clueless, and just as frenzied.

So I run.

My foot hits home just as the ball crashes through my coach’s windshield.
