Last week we learned that Kurt's date Aleisha got strep throat, and couldn't go with him to a party. Then, he starts to think about asking Susan to go with him instead.


Uh oh. What if he and Susan didn’t get along? It might be awkward to work with her if they didn’t hit it off.

Okay, he’d wash his car and forget about it. His life suited him just find. Who needed complications? He’d ask Susan about the play the next time he saw her at school.


~* ~
Kurt’s call came around lunchtime on Saturday.

Susan had been waiting since nine, but when she answered the phone she tried to sound surprised to hear from him. 

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.

How did she know? what did i miss. can't wait to read the conversation they're going to have.

That guy is so undecided, isn't he? He knows they will get along just find. I don't know what the car wash did to him but it seems to have been very powerful to make him pick up the phone.

I'm with Iris. How did she know?

Ed Hoornaert said...

You've got me wondering two things. First, what changed his mind? And second, why was she waiting for his call?

T. M. Hunter said...

Ah, dating drama...I don't miss that, either. :-)

Elaine Cantrell said...

Just to clarify, she was waiting for his call because she knew a football coach would be consumed with curiosity over the football play she sketched for him.

Clever lady stood her ground and waited. I love his (failed) argument. Nicely done, Elaine

Don't you love it when you go and do something you told yourself you weren't going to do? LOL!!!! Nice snippet.

Siobhan Muir said...

I'm rather surprised that's his concern given they're both adults. But I'm definitely curious as to how she knew he'd call. Good snippet, Elaine.

Charmaine Gordon said...

She waited him out and he called. YIPPEE! Let the games begin and I'm not talking about football.

Emmy Gatrell said...

Why was she waiting? Good snippet! Can't wait for more!

Christina Ochs said...

Sometimes it's hard to wait a man out. It's like Dances with Wolves, but with phones. :-)

Caitlin Stern said...

Coward! Lame... Oh, well, he'll have to make up his mind eventually.

The Belle in Blue said...

I think his concerns are justified, but that doesn't mean I don't think he should ignore them! ;-) Great snippet as always.

Wonder if she had something to do with Aleisha's illness and knew she'd be called?

Daelyn Morgana said...

But what if it DOESN'T come across as awkward and complicated? Just take the plunge, dude, and go for it. I would take Aleisha's sickness as a sign.
