TITLE: FIFTY KISSES
GENRE: YA Romance
Chelsea roars her VW convertible into the AHS parking lot and checks her makeup in the rear view mirror. Good thing I put my seat belt on because there's a screech of tires, and I'm thrown back against my headrest.
I tighten every muscle in my body, waiting for a crash.
Chelsea shakes so hard, she can barely hold onto the wheel. "My God, I almost hit that car. Where did it come from?" She peers out the side window. "Oh, damn. It's Logan Spenser. This is going to screw up our bet."
"We just about smashed into somebody, and you're worried about a bet?" I sink down farther in my seat until I'm almost on the floor.
Grinding into reverse, Chelsea floors it and this time she misses banging into him by about three inches. She shifts into first gear and we jolt forward and into another parking place. We both sit in silence and breathe heavy.
My heart's pounding so fast, it feels like I ran twenty miles.
Giggling like a couple of ten-year-olds, we crawl out of the car and stumble toward the entrance to the school. I'm just glad we're alive.
Chelsea grabs my arm as we start up the steps. "It's him. He's waiting for us."
"Who?" Like I don't know. My heart's still pounding, but in a
different way. This one isn't fear. It's excitement. I glance up and
he's standing in front of me, all gorgeous in his black leather jacket.
