A hot spot soccer player injured himself before he could make his name known. Instead he bought a soccer minor league team which lead him to marrying one of the players. They were very much in love and after a few years of owning their team, they had a child.
The child grew up on nothing but soccer. He turned into a crazy player for his school years. When it came for college, he found out how much talent he lacked. All the hard work and knowledge in the world does not compared to someone who has talent and trains.
Two more children came and went through the system. Their daughter had some talent, but lacked the willpower of the first. The second son tried his best, but couldn’t even become a starter in high school.
Ten years pass them by. The ex hot spot soccer player finds himself with a losing team and a pregnant wife. So late in their life the child will have siblings who are adults.
With the increasing awareness of lack of talent, they do not drag their youngest daughter to the games or practices. They let her do what she wants to do: draw.
In middle school, she entered a drawing contest and succeeded in getting a notice. So by the time high school hit, she had an active entry set up. She hasn’t made a name for herself. During the summer before freshman year, her father received the notice of too much debt. If things do not turn around the team will have to be sold elsewhere.
High school is where the daughter realizes her love for the game of soccer after watching an older female play. Her first thought she fell in love with the girl. Her desire to draw the female in action is insane. After joining the team, she realizes it was not a love for her senior, but for soccer.
In this fiction/adventure/soccer/love story, you’ll meet a family crazy about soccer with the undercurrent of failure. The youngest daughter bringing in hope when everyone is faced with despair.
