Sample text:

One month earlier…


“Do you want to go out with me, Julia?”

Blake’s sweet smile made my heart melt and hearing those words caused my own smile to become wider than ever. The fluttery feeling in my stomach sent tingles down my spine and I pictured the look on Millie’s face when I told her the news.

Blake Jansen wanted me to go out with him. Not just once to the movies, but really go out, as in hanging out together at school every day and maybe even on the weekends. It was another dream come true and I clasped my hands together in delight as I pictured all the wonderful times we would share. I could see him carrying my books into class and reserving a seat for me in the lunch area. I could also see the look of envy on all the other girls’ faces.

As he reached over to hold my hand, I felt my stomach drop. I looked into his eyes and held his gaze, smiling shyly. Then, beaming with pride, I opened my mouth to respond to the question I had been longing to hear.

“Yes, Blake. I would love to!” The words were just about to come spilling out when the wonderful image I had created was suddenly and unexpectedly wiped clear from my mind.

“Julia! What is wrong with you? Are you going deaf or something? I called you about five times. Why didn’t you answer me?” The look of annoyance on my brother’s face along with his angry tone, snapped my mind back to reality.

“What are you doing in here anyway? I need you to come downstairs and help me clean up the mess in the kitchen. Mom will be home soon and she’ll freak out if those dirty dishes are still piled up in the sink.”
