Fourteen year old Wyatt Barnes was sent to live with his grandparents in Chelsey Falls after the death of his mom. That summer was filled with new friendships and adventure, until his life was suddenly turned upside-down a second time.
Nearly a decade later, Wyatt returns to the small town after receiving an offer to teach at the high school there. His sudden reappearance has Alexa feeling all mixed up. She knows that she can’t avoid him forever, and wonders if what started out as a crush so long ago could become more than that now?
I followed her to her locker, leaning against the one next to hers. I hadn’t made any friends yet and Lexa intrigued me. She slammed her locker shut.
“Did you need something?”
There was that irritated look again.
Lexa and I had History together after lunch. “I wanted to make sure you made it to class okay.” I thought I saw another smile as she started down the hall without answering.
“This is so nice,” I shouted into the busy hall. “Just you and me walking to class together.” She snorted, quickly covering her mouth, but not before I saw a speck of spit fly through the air.
“Real funny, Wyatt.” She laughed and her face turned bright red. I wasn’t sure if she was embarrassed by the flying spit or by the fact that she actually knew my name.
