Saturday Sample

Welcome to Saturday Sample. I'm sharing excerpts from The Captain and the Cheerleader. We'll be picking up where we left off last week. Kurt is in the middle of a tense football game when Susan sent him a football play sketched on a piece of paper. I made him mad to be disturbed, but he's about to look at it.

It could work. Why not give it a try? At this point, they had nothing to lose. He called his last time out to give instructions to the team. Thank goodness for Ken Banks. The Mavericks had never had a better quarterback. With his guidance they might have a chance of successfully running this thing.

He held his breath as the team lined up on the field and snapped the ball. If he hadn’t known better, he would have thought the boys had practiced this play many times because it went as smoothly as clockwork. The Mavericks moved the ball across the goal line almost before the other team could find where it went. The score was tied.

Kurt’s fingernails dug into his palms when the team lined up to kick the extra point. The spectators rose to their feet and fell silent until the announcer screamed, “It’s good! Mavericks on top twenty-one to twenty.” The crowd went wild. With only three seconds remaining on the clock, the band began to play as the cheerleaders led a cheer for their team.

Jason came running from the far end of the field. “What a play! Why’d you keep it a secret?”

“Later,” Kurt shouted as his players threw themselves against him in a concentrated group hug.

Susan English can’t stand Robin Lanford! She’s so full of herself she irritates everyone on the faculty of Fairfield High. When Robin bets Susan fifty dollars that she can’t get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach, Susan jumps at the chance to put the little heifer in her place. She had no idea that teaching Robin a lesson would irrevocably change her life, strain treasured friendships, and throw two families into chaos.
