#100WCGU #171 – line change

This week the prompt for the 100 Word Challenge was ‘I can’t decide when to change’


I feel like I’ve been out on the ice for ages. The coach was quite clear ‘Two minute shifts, then change up.’ I’m skating hard, my lungs are burning, and although I haven’t touched the puck I’ve done a good job of making sure my man hasn’t touched it either.

I risk a glance at the clock, have I done enough yet? I can’t decide when to change. I can feel I’m almost spent. I look for a gap as the puck shoots up the ice, and jump over the boards, gratetfully slumping onto the bench. Four minutes and I’ll have to do it all again.

  1. I’m exhausted reading this! You obviously know about ice hockey. Great capture of the scene. Now, go & have a rest!
