Jack has a secret hidden in his pants, and Eli thinks he knows what it is.
Jack Cox has a secret he’s kept hidden for years until a fellow hockey player discovers a scrap of silk and lace hiding in his pocket. Elijah Mitten notices how anxious Jack is as the hot-pink fabric makes its way around the locker room, and when Jack throws it in the trash like it means nothing, Elijah guesses what’s beneath his stoic façade and possibly his pants.
When Elijah shows up on Jack’s doorstep looking for answers, Jack won’t admit anything. But when Elijah takes matters into his own hands, Jack has to make a decision: share his secret and risk losing hockey or keep it hidden forever.
I have to say I really did love this short story….. and I have to say I learnt about Manties too!!
Jacks secret is one he is not ashamed of, but due to how others would react he prefers to keep it quiet. Also being part of the hockey team means that his secret could mean the end of this.
Running late one day meant that Jack did not have time to get home and change before the hockey match, and he didn’t hide his secret deep enough in his bag…. much to his total horror, someone saw pink silk and lace poking out of the pocket of his bag, and pulled it out. Jack brushes it all off and then throws them away in the trash.
Unbeknown to Jack, Elijah has rescued the pink silk and lace from the trash, and goes to Jacks house to get some answers. At first Jack ignores any questions, until Elijah mentioned he knows the pink silk and lace are actually for men……
Jack still doesn’t answer Elijah until he is cornered in the kitchen, and Elijah starts making out with him, and whispers comments….
Does Jack finally confess to Elijah that he wears manties?? What is Elijah’s reaction to this???
I will let you get the book and find out…… it may be a short story, but this is another one that I fully intend to keep on my kindle to read time and time again.,
