Chapter 1

Care to join me?

He calls out from the bed.

The answer is no, thank you,

But the words don’t form.

All I can see are those girls in the locker room,

Whispering and whispering.

About what, everyone knows,

Because soon the whispering turns to shouting.

This is high school,

And advertisement is as important as the act itself.

I try again:

No, thank you.

Nothing.

Just the visions.

Now the girls are laughing.

At what?

They’re pointing… me?

Why me?

They’re mouthing something,

A word that I know well.

Virgin.

Yes, a word that I know well.

But why are you laughing?

I want to ask.

I want it to be special,

I cry out.

But they don’t hear me,

Because the laughter continues.

Enough!

I scream as I tear out my hair.

I turn to look at him,

sprawled out on the hotel bed.

He’s not bad-looking,

Would it really be so bad?

Sure, he’s as dumb as they come,

But that doesn’t matter right now.

If everybody’s done it,

It should be fine.

Care to join me?

He calls out again

This time,

My answer comes out loud and clear

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem.

jenneyescoto: I'm only six chapters in, yet I'm already hooked. It didn't start too slow nor too fast. It has just enough background information to keep the plot going in a decent pace. There are just some minor grammar mistakes and phrasing that could be easily corrected. Other than that, I'm really enjoying ...

chariethomas7: I love the plot line on how it's not just how Elizabeth has to deal the her lover but her ex husband and child. I personally scared that she would get caught with her child but not Ben. I would love if this story can continue. The ending is making me want more.

graceeming: I thought the whole story form the beginning was captivating, it really gave you the hunger that you were longing for in a story. Yes the end was not something that I enjoyed, but I recommend this to anyone that enjoys fantasy of this type.
