Hey! How’s it going? Can you believe we’re almost through another month? December is right around the corner, and so is another snippet from Learning to Love!
Continuing from where we left off…
People didn’t stick around on Fridays. Well, he couldn’t blame them for that. At the ad agency, he’d only have put in a half day’s work at three-fifteen. Most days he didn’t leave the office till closer to eight, too tired to do anything but peel out of the parking lot and beeline it to the nearest drive-thru serving the crap his latest campaign targeted at teenagers. Greasy, delicious, artery-clogging goodness.
So good it killed.
Taking a shuddering breath, he turned the corner and drew up short. There she was…just walking down the hall. And his heart did a little doo-wah-diddy in his chest. Pure elation morphed into alarm when Rebecca wobbled on her feet. His own feet quickly ate up the real estate that separated them and, with one hand under her arm and the other at her waist, he caught her before she face-planted on the concrete floor.
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!
I want to wish all my American friends, followers, and fellow writers a very happy Thanksgiving! If you choose to partake in the shopping madness, wear armour and may God be with you. For the first time in maybe ever, I’m finished my Christmas shopping before December. You guys…I’m scared. Hold me. Of course, I’ll wait till December 24th to wrap my presents. I’ll probably find like six more gifts to buy between now and then, too. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and be kind to yourselves and the Christmas elves. 🙂
