Blurb:
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.

We're picking up where we left off last week. Susan just told her friend Melissa that she wished she hadn't made the bet, but if she cancels, Robin will think it's because she can't get him, and Melissa just agreed with her.  Melissa speaks first.



Robin’s one of the most annoying people I’ve ever met. Kurt probably ran for his life when she batted her eyelashes at him.”

“Well, she might have tossed her hair at him.”


Both of them snickered. Robin did toss her hair frequently.

“All I have to do is go out with him once, so maybe it won’t be too bad.” Susan kicked at a fallen acorn to relieve her feelings.

“I don’t get it,” Melissa said. “Why does it bother you to go out with him? He’s so sexy my knees get weak when he walks into a room.”

Visual writing, Elaine. I think Susan is going to come face to face with a big dose of reality in this story. :-) I do so love the premise! Nicely done!

Excitement ahead and it may be for good. Romance at school sometimes works out.

Caitlin Stern said...

Aww, poor guy. She's treating a date with him like getting her flu shot!

I still think these adults are behaving like the kids they teach so.....but well written snippet for sure! Getting me all riled up LOL so I'm obviously invested :)

Can't wait to find out the answer. I wonder whether she's attracted to him, but doesn't want to admit it.

Annoying / sexy. The man elicits an interesting combination of reactions.

J. Rose Allister said...

Why indeed? Good question...although I'm not sure she'll get a straight answer. :)

I'm sure Susan is wary of spending time with him because she is having a hard time fighting the attraction, maybe? Good visuals

I feel like this is going to lead to a "wait for it... wait for it... BAM!" kind of moment down the line of what's to come. Lol. Nicely done. Interested to see what her response to that last question is.

I think Susan is kidding herself and trying to fool her friend. She really does want this date, I'm thinking.

Linda said...

I wonder if Susan likes him too much or just not enough. I never imagine anyone can spend so much time thinking about someone else. I mean at this rate Susan might end up dating Robin, she seemed pretty obsessed with her.
