The Light That Wraps You

"Oh magnificent and fecund and magnetic slave
of the circle that moves in turn through black and gold:
rise, lead and possess a creation
so rich in life that flowers perish
and it is full of sadness."

Kris Letang lost his best friend Luc Bourdon to a catastrophic motorcycle accident in 2008. At the same time, Lucinda Girard’s life was given back to her. When she is called upon to work temporarily for the Pittsburgh Penguins organization, Kris will learn that his beloved best friend has not been forgotten and is certainly not gone.

Disclaimer: I do not own anyone affiliated with National Hockey League, including coaches, staff, and players. The only thing I own is my character, and this idea. The events herein are fictional. Quote in the short description is from the book Looking For Alaska by John Green. The title of this story and the above excerpt are from the poem The Light That Wraps You by Pablo Neruda.

I wrote this as a tribute to Luc Bourdon; may he rest in peace. It is my first attempt at a combination of first/second person point-of-view, and I hope you enjoy it.
