Amanda's Eyes - Chapter 17 - "Boo"

Seventeen – “Boo”

Tuesday was no different than Monday. Sweatshirt, jeans, guide, classes, no one to talk to, no friends, no enemies, no expectations, no fun -- just a boring, uneventful day ending with the “wonderful” after-school reading program.

Thirteen - There’s Enough Blame for Everyone

 
Waking up early Sunday morning, Ken tried to convince himself that the end of the previous evening was nothing but a horrible nightmare. Unfortunately the evidence surrounding him told him that it was all too real.

Let's shift gears a little and look at events from Amanda's point of view. Let me know if you like the shift in focus. 

 

Six – Life Sucks

Amanda's Eyes - Chapter 5

Sometimes something you do on impulse, without stopping to think about it, has a huge impact on your life. Sometimes that impact is even positive.

Amanda's Eyes - Chapter 4

This chapter has a scene with a mild sexual situation. If that disturbs you I'm sorry but I felt it was important to the plot. Remember how things can change in the course of a weekend when you are a teenager?
