A Sneak Peek at Double Dare
This week I’ve decided to post a little teaser from Double Dare, because I’ve had my hands full with two sick children. Next week the third installment of the Cafeteria Wars will be posted, which will be from Trevor’s point of view.
On a side note, I will be doing two signings at the Barnes and Noble in Boston at the Prudential Center in February. The information is under the Events page on this website. I hope to see you there 🙂
A Sneak Peek from Double Dare……..
“Still not talking to me?”
“Rot in hell,” Marybeth said, taking a sip of her soda as she walked away from him.
“Come on,” he said, quickening his pace to catch up with her, “you know that you’re happy that I came.”
“No, not really,” she said with a tiny shake of her head as she walked past the games lined up on either side of them.
“You’ll have more fun with me,” he pointed out, wondering if she was still pissed that he’d told Trevor about Zoe’s betrayal.
She shot him a glare as she kept walking, probably hoping that he wouldn’t notice that she was walking away from all the fun rides. “How exactly am I supposed to have more fun with you when I came here to have fun with the kids?”
“Because you hate children,” he decided to remind her.
“No, I don’t,” the stubborn woman said as he reached down and took her soda out of her hand.
He chuckled as he finished off her soda and tossed it in a trashcan as they walked past it. “Yes, you do.”
“Then explain why I invited them this weekend instead of you?” she asked, cocking an eyebrow in challenge.
“Simple, you don’t like going to places like this by yourself and,” he said, grinning because he simply couldn’t help himself, “because you knew that I would dare you to get your beautiful ass on one of the rollercoasters.”
“You bastard!” she gasped, quickening her pace until she was almost running through the crowd, but she couldn’t run fast enough to get out of earshot before he took it to the next level.
“I double dare you.”
