Cryselle posted a prompt that reminded me of a section of Return from the Mountain. Gary and Seth are seniors (Seth is a super senior, poor guy) playing on the high school golf team in the little mountain town of Phippsburg. Golf teams through the high schools are surprisingly common throughout the mountain west. My little high school in Casper, Wyoming had a team comprised of teenagers much like these young men, or like Seth and Gary.
Find an excerpt from Return to the Mountain at Cryselle’s Bookshelf, and imagine a young man wanting to pat his teammate’s bottom.
