Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors

Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. After you finish here, you can find me snippets at:

Here's a blurb and excerpt, and this week we'll be starting with Kurt's POV.

 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.

Last week Kurt had just told his friend Jason that Susan English gave him a compliment in the faculty lounge, and Jason asked him if he still thought Susan was hot. Creative punctuation.

Kurt’s fork paused on its way to his mouth; “I never said that, but, yeah, I do. Susan English could put a movie star to shame.”

“What about Aleisha Childs?”

“What about her?”

Jason paused to swallow a big drink of his tea and made Kurt smile. Mrs. Kirby always provided the tea for the football team, exactly what he had hoped for when he complimented her on how good it tasted. Everyone at school loved it, and that included the football team.

“We’ve known Aleisha since we were ten,” Jason said, "and she’s awfully pretty; how many times have you gone out with her now?” 

"A few."

Oh nooooo! Aleisha could throw a wrench in the works... :-) Good twist, Elaine!

So this got me pondering on the scale. Awfully pretty vs putting a movie star to shame. Aleisha should add a bit of tension to the game! Nicely done Elaine.

He doesn't sound all that concerned about Aleisha. I have to wonder if Jason't just yanking his chain.

Iris B said...

Lots of information - who's who ... look forward to reading the next little snippet.

Veronica Scott said...

Interesting conversation going on. I wonder where Aleisha fits into all this? Great snippet.

Caitlin Stern said...

He doesn't seem so enthused about those 'few' dates... Just a heart-breaker, isn't he?

Christina Ochs said...

Uh-oh, Susan has competition! Loved the detail about the tea- says a lot about this little community.

Ed Hoornaert said...

So he thinks Susan is movie-star hot. That should make it easier for her to get a date with him.

Chelle Cordero said...

Wonder if Aleisha is as blase about those FEW dates as Kurt, this could prove quite interesting

Stephanie Ingram said...

Aleisha? Uh oh! And here I thought the path to Susan was already paved. ;-) Looks like Susan better have more going for her than just movie star looks. Great snippet!

Cecilia Corona said...

Uh oh. Aliesa could put a cork in things.

Emmy Gatrell said...

Great snippet!

Between the awfully pretty and put a movie star to shame comparisons, this is going to become more complicated then expected.

Linda said...

Oh! Oh! Myybe Susan has more than Robin to worry about.
