Jessie’s heart is already pounding in her chest as she flings her locker open, grabs her stack of books, and slams it shut. She jumps as the shutting door suddenly reveals a handsome, dimpled face. “Slater!” she exclaims, slapping at his shoulder. “Don’t sneak up on me last that!”
Slater’s smile widens; she can already feel herself beginning to melt. The effect this man has on her is astounding! “I can’t go out tonight; I’ve got too much homework and studying to do.”
“And you couldn’t meet before school because of Beta activities or after because of cheerleading -- “
She rolls her eyes. “I know it’s stupid, but it looks good on college applications.”
“Hey, Mama, I’m not complaining about you in a cheerleader uniform -- “
“You know it,” he says, drawing her into his arms, “but this pig wants you to find some time for him in your busy schedule!”
She’s set to protest, but the moment his lips touch hers, Jessie knows he’s right. Her schedule’s chock full, but she’s got to find some time for him -- for them, because what good is the brightest future if she can’t share it with him? She sighs and melts.
