Saturday Sample: The Captain and the Cheerleader

Welcome to Saturday Sample. Today I'll pick up where I left off last Saturday in Chapter one. Here's a blurb for the book.

Susan English can’t stand Robin Landford!  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.

“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.”

Susan giggled. “I know what you mean. It doesn’t bother me to go out with him, but it does bother me to use him just to put Robin in her place.”

Melissa thought about it. “He’ll never know, so why worry? If you have a good time you might want to go out with him for real, though. The man is drop dead gorgeous.”

“I’ve noticed.” Susan pulled out her cell phone to take a picture of an especially brilliant tree on the edge of the teacher parking lot. “I always notice six foot two, blond Vikings.”

“Good description. I’ll bet he gets all those muscles working out with the team.”

“Wherever he gets them they sure look good.” Susan extended her phone so Melissa could see the picture she’d taken.
