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. Kurt went to be with the football players before the game. He told his friend Jason that Susan had given him a compliment, and Jason reminded him that he already had a girl named Aleisha Childs. Kurt isn't sure if it's serious between them. He is about to lose his Friday night ball game when a boy interrupted him. The boy had a football play from Susan that won the game for him. Kurt is pondering that play when Alicia calls and cancels their date for that night. Kurt decides to ask Susan to go with him so he can ask her about that play.

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.

Susan went to her closet to see what she had to wear. Maybe her new jeans would be nice with the black sweater she had bought on sale last winter. The jeans fit like a dream, and the sweater always brought out the gold in her hair. Her black boots would look perfect with the outfit and so would some turquoise jewelry she’d bought in Arizona.

Samson meowed piteously and rubbed against her legs. “Do you need a treat?” Susan crooned. Scooping him up, she went to the kitchen for a kitty treat. Guess she might as well call Melissa now too.

“Hi, it’s me,” she said. “Guess who I’m going out with tonight.”

“Not Kurt?” squealed Melissa. “Boy, that was fast work. Robin’s going to die.”

Susan laughed. “I hope she’ll be suitably impressed. How am I going to prove to everyone that I really went out with him?”
