Welcome to Tuesday Blog Share. What is more innocent than teens falling in love for the first time? I don’t mean the weekly “Oh, I’m so in love with this girl/guy” type of love. This is more along the lines of soul mates connecting, of stars falling from the heavens to celebrate a connection fated to be forever. Most say that’s impossible but they haven’t really experienced teen romance such as these couples have.
That magic moment for a teen. The realization that the person you’ve liked is a little more than a friend. Chance meetings. Old friendships. Even a social media post. These can all lead to that first love.
Authors M.A. Cortez, Gloria Weber, Vanayssa Somers, Margaret Egrot, Josie Montano, K.C. Sprayberry, Pauline Prentiss, and Mya O’Malley bring you tales of teens in the throes of their first romance.
Nixie took a broken branch and scraped a glop of mud from the toe of her new, suede boots. She set her bow down next to the spare tire in the trunk of her beat up VW. Normally, she would’ve worn her UGGs in this unpredictable weather but this was her second lesson with Garrett, the cute guy she met at Mia’s New Year’s Eve party and even though he probably had a girlfriend, it didn’t hurt to look good.
Recurve, the archery range where she worked, was packed. Most of the people would be league regulars, practicing for the upcoming tournament on Valentine’s Day. Free lanes would be scarce for the walk in’s, which meant there would be a line of people who would have to wait. Customers who have to wait equal grumpy people and she hated working with grumpy people. She knew Garrett had made an appointment because she saw his name on the reservation list but, if he showed up late, she would have to help someone else, and her cute-but not-too-obvious, outfit would go to waste. It would just be my luck that Gwen will get him this time and I’ll get creepy Lord of the Rings, guy. Gwen always managed to get her claws on every cute guy that showed up at the range.
