Happy Sunday, my peeps! It’s raining outside while I type this, which makes it the perfect day for curling up with a good book…or writing one. 🙂 Here’s the latest snippet from my work-in-progress, Learning to Love!
Continuing from where we left off…
Pete chuckled. “Take my advice and keep it simple. These kids just wanna play, not get bogged down in the nitty-gritty details of the game.”
Giving him a firm pat on the back, Pete said, “You’ll do fine so long as you remember you’re not at your fancy prep school anymore.”
Will regretted sharing that bit of information with the older man the very moment it slipped from his lips, but he couldn’t change his past, nor the privilege and pain that came with it. Kendal High was so unlike his own high school it was unfair to even compare the two. Crestwood students had one goal in mind: the pursuit of higher education. Here, maybe a handful of students would go on to post-secondary institutions. Some would go into the trades, most would fight for minimum wage jobs, and there’d be a few who’d never graduate at all.
Here’s the blurb:
Rebecca Ledgerwood is a physical education teacher who’s ready to invest some sweat equity into a lasting romance. On a whim, she has her palm read before summer vacation ends, and she’s told she’s an old soul who’ll find happiness with a younger man.
William Whitney leaves an unfulfilling career to pursue teaching and gets placed at Rebecca’s school for his physical education practicum. He’s desperate to make a difference, convinced that the choices he made in the past contributed to his younger sister’s death. Kendal High School is nothing like the prep school he attended as a teenager, but he’s determined to make the most of his time there, especially if it makes Rebecca notice him.
Though they come from vastly different backgrounds, there’s an undeniable chemistry that sparks between the two. They resist, as they must, until his practicum ends, but when he’s offered a teaching position at his former prep school, will he take the easy way out, or fight for what’s right in front of him?
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!
This will be my last post for a few weeks. I’ve got plans next weekend, and the weekend after that is our Canadian Thanksgiving. While I’m away eating all the food and spending time with friends and family, know that I consider you all like family, too. Aww, I’m schmoopy. 😀 But it’s true! I’m thankful every day for this community and I hope to be sharing my snippets with you for years to come! Take care and I’ll be back soon! xo
