Odd Man in College

by Ernest Bywater

Copyright© 2014 by Ernest Bywater

Fiction Story: Lyn Davies is the Odd Man In - not the Odd Man Out. An Australian in a US college, Lyn is the sort to vanish into a crowd, even one as small as four people, despite many stand-out abilities. Just after Lyn graduates from high school life delivers Lyn three strikes; but this isn't baseball: Lyn is down, but not out. While trying to stand Lyn is served some fast balls, but manages them. One curve ball is what Lyn needs for a solid hit to get on with life with an unusual Pet as Therapy animal.
