Happiness Is Overrated
Eric was living his dream; captain of a playoff contending hockey team, living life in a great city. He had even had his happiness off of the ice, even if it was stressful at times. He had friends, and he had people around him that he considered family. His team and his team mates had filled a hole that he had in his heart when he was first drafted. He honestly felt incredibly lucky, and maybe even a little blessed. He hadn't wanted for anything or anyone in years.
