Synopsis :: Novalee Nation had always wanted her daughter to be strong. Rising to the Occasion
Forney smiled and Momma waved as Americus Nation made her way toward home plate. The butterflies in her stomach fluttered upward to tickle the back of her throat as she held the bat between her knees and straightened the sun-yellow baseball cap beneath her helmet.
Hesitantly she picked up the bat and hefted it over her shoulder. It dipped, bobbing in her uncertain grip as Americus stepped up to the plate. Kicked at the mound before her stomach tightened, vision tunneling as the fear just melted away.
Her head lifted, eyes narrowing as she turned toward the pitcher and smiled. The End.
