Wasssssup, my writers and readers? Happy Sunday to you! I’ll be sharing another snippet from Learning to Love today, so prepare yourself for the drama unfolding at Kendal High! 😀
Continuing from where we left off…
Ignoring the vulgarity, Rebecca focused on the matter at hand. “This might be hard for you girls to believe, but I was once your age, too. I’ve experienced my fair share of unexpected breakups, but you know what I’ve learned? No matter how hurt you are or angry…or homicidal, you can never, ever let him know it. Don’t you dare let this guy think he’s worth crying over.”
Jenna glanced away from the mirror at Rebecca, biting down on her quivering lower lip. She reached for a fresh cluster of tissues and blew her nose. Face blotchy and eyes swollen, the young girl finally managed a smile. “He was a terrible kisser, anyway.”
“Atta girl,” Rebecca praised her.

“I think with a few touch-ups, we can have you back on the dance floor again in no time.” She scanned their immediate surroundings, spotting the girls’ handbags on the floor near the wall. “What do we have to work with here, ladies?”
Both girls sprang into action, grabbing their bags and rifling through the contents. Their combined assortment of cosmetics included a small bottle of liquid foundation, some mascara, blush, and three different shades of lip gloss.
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?

I’ve been such a good writer girl for the past week and a bit, you guys. Every day, I’ve committed to writing at least 1000 words, and I’ve stuck to it. If I can keep this up, LTL will be finished in no time. Wishing you all a productive day! See you next week! 🙂
