Is that a hint?

Lunch finally ends, but Danielle’s clinging continues all the way to her class. She tries to make out with me near a set of lockers, but I make an excuse and bolt to my class. Once Skylar and I started sharing facts about one another, things changed. Not even between us, but within my own self. Especially today. Today of all days, I should be riled up and yelling like everyone else roaming the halls. This is the game of the season. The one that determines who walks away a legend and who walks away a chump.
Instead of being pumped up and focused on the game tonight, I’m worried about Skylar. Her words from this morning have been on my mind more than I’d care to admit. Was she giving me a hint? And why hasn’t she said no to Mr. Chamberlin and Mr. Keegan’s request? It bothers me so much that I decide to take a detour from my sixth period class, and head to my uncle’s room.

Usually I knock on his door and then enter, but this is his free period, so there’s no reason to knock. Walking into his room, I spot him instantly scribbling some stuff on his board behind his desk. “Uncle Brian?”

All you want is a kiss ...

I’m staring at his mouth with desire, and even dart my tongue out to taste more of the afterthought of mint coating my lips. Caleb blinks and then brushes his lips against my cheekbone, causing a butterfly effect throughout my body so intense I feel as if ten bombs went off inside me. Blood rushes to my face, causing my skin to warm while I desire more of him. I gasp as excitement of wanting more of him fills me.
Caleb pulls away. He has an awkward smile on his face, and the next thing I know he hops off the bed and heads to the door. I don’t know whether or not I should feel grateful or upset. The feelings of desire, want, and need are so intense it scares the crap out of me. And yet, he’s leaving me. Rejection and disappointment wash over me.
He leaves my room without a goodbye. I sit up in my bed and rub my cheek, which oddly enough is still warm and tingly where he kissed me. All the mixed emotions bombard me, and suddenly I’m upset with myself. I’m upset that I allowed myself to fall for him. I’m even more ticked with myself for getting involved in his stupid game. Well it’s not happening again.

Welcome to our crazy world!


Hello Everyone!

This is our first blog post. It sounds so official like asking someone to be your date to Homecoming, Prom, or just in general. For those of you who have never read or heard of RIVAL LOVE by Natalie Decker, here is a little bit of a summary of mine and Caleb's story.

I'm a Harris Academy Bulldog, and have nothing but love for my school. Our rival team, Delmont High home of the Bobcats. Bleck! Everything in my life is perfect. I've got an awesome boyfriend, fantastic friends, and I even have my dream college totally picked out. But my mom decides she wants to take her relationship to the next level with her boyfriend and moves me into the one place that would make my senior year a living hell. That's right, she moved us to Delmont High's territory. UGH!!!

To say people hate me as much as I hate them is an understatement. My peeps dissed me. My boyfriend left. There's no one in the world I'll become a flipping Bobcat so my dream school is magically floating away from me. If this wasn't the total icing to a very sucktastic cake, the room directly across the hall from mine belongs to all-star quarterback Caleb Morgan. Yes, he's the nephew of my mom's live in boyfriend, and it is a nightmare.

Yeah, to say Sky just crashes into my life like a wrecking ball would be putting this mildly. I have to keep up my rep, and this is going to destroy me. Literally! I can't have a Bulldog in my house. My entire senior year of chilling with my boys, partying, playing football, and kicking it with some ladies is now all put on hold. All because my uncle had to fall all madly in love with her mom and ask her to move in. 

Sky being so damn gorgeous, talented in sports (practically famous since every flipping newspaper interviews her) and not to mention the fact she smells so ungodly delicious it's unreal. This girl is going to be the death of me. But her attitude and downright hatred for me puts me in check some of the time. And much as I hate to admit it the girl gets me more than anyone ever could. She calls me out on my bullshit and it's downright scary how right she is when it comes to me.

But no matter how much we might start liking each other we can't be friends, can we? We definitely can't give whatever this between us a go, right? Is it even worth the risk?
