You know the saying: all the bridesmaid, never the bride? Well, this is what this series is all about. It is a splinter-series from the Playing for Glory series, telling the stories of those characters who were in the background, or rather, on the sidelines. Falling is, for example the story of Jesse, Angie's twin brother in Eye on the Ball. choices is the story of Dan, Sarah in Wrecking Ball's older brother and Deuce is the story of Rafe Brady, son of head coach Tom Brady who also featured in Playing by the Rules. There will be others. I'm just waiting for them to tell their stories too.
As a young and hot-headed twenty-two-year-old, Dan Mackay made a choice he regretted ever since. Even though he knew it was wrong, he was too proud, and admittedly, too embarrassed, to admit it then. When he, at last, came to his senses, it was too late.
The past has a nasty habit of catching up on you. Returning to South Africa, Dan learned that the choice he made so long ago had more repercussions than even he thought.
Like Dan, Jess knew it was the biggest mistake letting Dan go, even as he was walking out of the door, but she was too proud to stop him. She would’ve wanted him to choose her, or just give her a choice, but when he didn’t, she let him go.
Will Dan be able to make better choices this time to help mend his relationship with Jess?
