Greetings and salutations! Hope you’re feeling just dandy on this fine Sunday morning! I’ve got another snippet from Learning to Love to share with you, so let’s hop to it! 🙂
I’m skipping ahead a little bit but still continuing the same scene. Pete’s just left the office.
The door clicked shut behind him. He liked Pete. Though a bit rough around the edges, he said what he meant and meant what he said. A genuine guy, a good guy. A guy’s guy. During lunch, Pete had shown him the second floor classroom where he taught ninth grade science each morning. Will would be observing him in that class next week and then co-teaching with him the following week. Of course, he couldn’t recall worth a damn the room number or which stairwell to take to get there fastest. So, kicking off the desk, he headed out the door to map his route.
Fifteen minutes after the final bell, and the place was already a ghost town.
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!
Report card season is upon us yet again. I’ll be working on those this week, whilst playing catch-up on my NaNo word count. My critique partner is crackin’ the whip so I’ll keep this short and sweet. Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead! 😀
