“Coach, I’m not giving up my life. I’m making a new one.”
“That’s bullshit and you know it. So you're going to play house with him, is that what you plan on doing?”
“Well, no. I was going to find a job wherever he gets drafted.”
“Why do you need to find a job when you have one already lined up for you? Lexi, listen to me, you need to take this. You have plenty of time in your life to be in love. If what you have with Jake is meant to be then your relationship will survive a little separation.”
Lexi spoke softly, she almost couldn’t hear herself. “But I don’t want to be separated.”
Her coach ran a hand over her face. “Jesus. What happened to the tough independent girl I recruited three years ago. Yes your game might be at its peak right now but you have lost yourself.” Her coach leaned in so only Lexi could hear her. “Do you want to turn out like your mom, who lost herself in a man and wound up in an abusive relationship? I don’t mean to be harsh but don’t rewrite history.”
