First Love and Second Chances…
Jake didn’t remove his eyes from her until she disappeared behind her door. The cute little shimmy of her behind hadn’t changed since high school. He removed his hat and used his shirtsleeve to sop up sweat beading on his forehead.
Back to the truck he turned the radio station to Kool. Leaning against the front bumper, he caught sight of the light as it came on in her bedroom upstairs. Jake gave a little smirk. Yeah, her bedroom. She stood at the window, her silhouette peering down at him, and an explosion of heat rushed over his body before she pulled the sheer curtains. She turned her back, let her hair down—the length of those ginger curls falling around her shoulders.
It was hard not to think about when she had wandered into detention the first day many years ago, and how his heart had beat like a drum, like it did tonight. What a beauty. Enough to set his seventeen-year-old body on fire. What could’ve been better to a seventeen-year-old bad boy? A hottie with a bad bone to send her to detention had fit his bill.
A lot of teasing had gone on from his friends because she was a freshman. Jake hadn’t even cared, but he watched her grow from a freshmen to a woman before his eyes—and so did his friends. No one teased once they realized how serious they had become.
Then it all fell apart. Thirteen years ago seemed like yesterday.
Jake took a step forward.
Then another and onto the porch. He gripped the knob, ushering himself inside.
This is Beth’s favorite song and she cries when she hears it. Maybe she’s upstairs thinking about this song right this minute…
Thanks for reading. Have an awesome weekend.
