365 Prompt: December 8 2017

Just before the game began, she looked up into the stands where I was watching and gave me a grin, her bright pink mouthguard looking too big for her tiny mouth.

Soccer matches could be brutal, but no more so than at a kid’s game.

The game itself wasn’t the problem, it was the parents in the crowd.
