EXCERPT / Part 2

A smile immediately pulled at Summer’s lips. They’d been friends throughout school, along with Emma Bell and some others. He was one of her closest friends. In the past year, things had changed between them. They didn’t talk as much as they used to and when they did it was a bit awkward. She hadn’t even spoken to him since she’d spent the summer in Boston.

“Hey,” she said, “what are you doing here?”

A warm smile lit up his handsome brown face. “I was just heading to work at the Purple Guppy.”

“What?” How was this the first she was hearing about him getting a new job? And then she realized with her commuting to Boston a few days a week, she wasn’t around all that much anymore. “That’s wonderful. Congrats. They’re lucky to have you.”

A tinge of color filled his face, and he lowered his gaze to the ground. “Thanks.”

“I shouldn’t keep you, then.”

He glanced at his fitness watch. “I have a little time. No need to be too early. How are you doing? We’ve been missing each other lately.”

She smiled. Leave it to Greg to be early to work. That was one thing about him; he always played by the rules. While other friends would push limits, Greg was okay with doing the right thing. He didn’t let peer pressure force him into doing things he wasn’t comfortable with. Some might even consider him as reserved.

As other people came along, they had to move to the side, and Summer said, “Why don’t we move over to the wall?”

He nodded in agreement and followed her to the sea wall. She sat down and swung her legs around so she was facing the ocean. He joined her. When she placed her hand on the wall, her fingers brushed against his hand. A jolt raced up her arm and settled in her chest, making her heart beat faster. She moved her hand, allowing a reasonable distance between them.

Once upon a time in high school, she’d had the biggest crush on Greg. She’d hoped he would ask her to the prom, but he went with Sally Nash instead. When he was available, she was dating someone. And when she was free, he was with someone else. The timing was never right for them. She took it as a sign they would never be anything more than friends and finally moved on.
