allison felt awkward as jared lay beside her after friends left their room at the hotel. they were celebrating their high school graduation at santa cruz beach boardwalk and amusement park.
jared whispered softly that it was time to take their relationship further. he kissed her and one thing led to another until it finally happened. tears rolled down her eyes. “i’m so sorry,” he said, wiping them away gently.
“jared, dear, where do we go from here?” she asked as she snuggled close to him. but there was no response. jared was already off to la-la land, snoring deeply.
