Ryan found the bike staring like a dog straining to go out.
It reminded him of Amanda in his 8th grade class. Whenever Ryan saw her, he felt an itch in his heart that he couldn’t scratch.
If there was a problem, it was that Ryan wasn’t in her league. He was overweight. With a head round like an orange and a body shaped like a pear, Ryan begged his mom for a bike so he could get in shape and maybe win her over.
“OK, dude, today’s the start of a new beginning. Let’s have fun in the park.”
