An Excerpt from a Writing Project
From Rockybado 3: The Invasion of the Naughty Blue Aliens (took place in summer 2014)
Brody Ingram has been dating Candace Seales for a little over six months, and their relationship is going strong. David Ingram, Brody's older brother, on the other hand, had a long-term relationship with former girlfriend Cera Berringer; however, they went to different schools, and both thought that it was next to impossible to continue the relationship. Now, David has been seeing Olivia Flavenshevich for a little over a year.
Brody had his eye on another girl, Olivia Paragnotti, for the longest time. Until he found out that she already had a boyfriend from his high school baseball team. And they are still dating after four years. Since Brody knew that he didn’t have a chance with Olivia, he decided to find someone else with whom he had a lot in common.
It happened to be Candace, with her blonde hair that goes above her shoulders, bright blue eyes, and light brown eyebrows. She goes to the same university as Brody. However, Brody is a computer engineering major and marketing minor; Candace is a communications major with a concentration in human resources, as well as a French minor. The nice thing about their relationship is that Candace does not live far away from Brody; she lives in Lowell, and Brody lives only twenty minutes north of her. As a matter of fact, Brody has ridden his bike to her house in the past.
And, as for David, he dated Cera until they started college. Cera and David are still friends, but they go to different colleges. When David was a sophomore in college, he noticed Olivia, who looks somewhat similar to Cera. However, she is a little shorter than Cera, and her hair is longer than Cera’s.
The catch of this relationship? David and Olivia graduated from the same high school and did not know each other until they started college. However, Olivia graduated in Brody’s class. In high school, Brody knew who she was, but they were only acquaintances.
“It seems as if Candace got a kick out of the stuffed bear that you got her,” David remarked after a few minutes of awkward silence.
“I think she did,” Brody said, blushing.
“Didn’t it have a recording of a heartbeat in it?”
“Was it yours?” David asked.
“Could have been,” Brody replied slowly, smiling and letting out a deep sigh. “Could not have been.”
“Was it really?”
After a few seconds….
“After all those years in high school when all the girls liked you.”
“I don’t even want to think about that, David.”
