Beyond the Book: The Captain and the Cheerleader

Hello, and welcome to Beyond the Book. I've been sharing excerpts from The Captain and the Cheerleader. I'm picking up where I left off last week. Robin Lanford who's a royal pain in the butt just bet Susan English that she couldn't get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach. Some of the other faculty members also got in on the bet. Kurt showed up and Susan asked about the football game later that night.

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.

Melissa and Susan strolled slowly toward their 
cars. Who wanted to go home on such a beautiful afternoon? The crisp, cool weather turned the sky a lovely, deep blue, and the trees blazed in shades of scarlet, orange, and gold. The smell of smoke from burning leaves periodically filled the air.

“Good football weather,” said Melissa. “Are you going to the game tonight?”

Susan frowned. “I guess I should since I made that stupid bet. I wish I’d never done it, but if I cancel now, Robin will think it’s because I can’t get him, and she’ll never let me live it down.”

Melissa nodded. “That’s true. 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.
