Here's a blurb.

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.


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. He did think so, but we also found out Kurt had starting seeing Aleisha Childs.  Jason speaks first.


“Are you thinking of asking Susan

 out?” Jason shrugged. “It isn’t any of my business, but...”

“You’re asking anyway, and yes, I’ve thought about it. I heard she broke up with that guy, what’s his name, Tommy Price, but you’d better keep it to yourself.” Kurt frowned at Jason. “I don’t see any need for the whole world to know my business.”

“Is she coming to the game tonight?”

“She didn’t say, and I didn’t ask.”


“Well, you probably wouldn’t have any time for 
her anyway,” Jason said as he picked up his cheeseburger.

“Well, you probably wouldn’t have any time for her anyway,”

Now that's a veiled challenge!

I agree. Nothing like a little nudge from a friend to get a man's interest tickled. Super snippet, Elaine

Jason is so intrusive. I wonder if he is not interested in Susan too and wants a reason to back off.

Iris B said...

I had the same thought as Linda .... is Jason hindering more than helping?

Christina Ochs said...

Either Jason is hoping he can get Kurt to back off, or he's trying to push him-reverse psychologically-in Susan's direction!

Oh what fun to gossip and carry on just like when we were kids. You've got me, Elaine. This is good.

I look forward to these snippets every week! And I have to agree with Jason about the game. Having been married to a coach for 33 years, I can attest to their not having time for anybody during a game, but afterward is another thing altogether. Especially if they won! ;-)

These conversations between the guys have been interesting, to say the lest. Another great snippet! I love 'eavesdropping' on them.

Teresa Cypher said...

Ha! I love this whole scene, showing how guys gossip with the best of women. :-) And good way to move the plot forward. Nicely done, Elaine!

Jennifer Powell Reynolds said...

I love reading these types of conversations between men. :)

Caitlin Stern said...

I think he could make the time... though he really needs to have a talk with the other woman he's dating first.

Ed Hoornaert said...

So, after a lot of teasing, you may be bringing us closer to the point where these two get together.

Wanna bet on that? As far as I've learned with guys, hand them a challenge, undercut or straight forward, and they will not back down.
