Hi everybody – SO, something very special to share with you guys today, which you've only been asking me to do for years...
This April (2021) marks TEN YEARS since I began writing The Kissing Booth and uploading it to Wattpad! And so much has happened in that time. It's now become a five-book series (The Kissing Booth / The Beach House / TKB2: Going the Distance / TKB: Road Trip! / and TKB3: One Last Time, coming this summer) with translations worldwide, and a three-part series of Netflix Original Movies!
Honestly, when I began this story, I never could've imagined any of this. I wrote it for fun and thought I'd share it on Wattpad because, why not? You guys used to comment what a great movie it would make and I'd think lol, yeah right... But hey, what did I know!
To celebrate ten years of The Kissing Booth I'm doing a bunch of special content like reacting to the book on YouTube (you can find me there at Beth Reekles), some Live Q&As on Instagram (@authorbethreekles) and a giveaway on there too! And, of course, I had to do something special for Wattpad since this is where it all started...
So, without further ado, here's "Noah's Story", a one-shot of Noah's version of events at the infamous kissing booth... Enjoy!
If there was one thing I admired about my little brother and his best friend, it was that they could make the impossible possible.
I mean, I admired it, but it also terrified me, and pretty much everyone else I knew.
They were always coming up with ideas that my mom would call 'zany'. Costume parties, game night tournaments...
Seriously, they couldn't just do the normal thing where you hooked a duck to win a prize, or shot darts at water balloons. They had to go big, go bold, be different. A kissing booth. I didn't know how they'd ever got that one approved by the student council but, hey, I shouldn't have been surprised. Lee and Elle always had a way of sweeping everyone else up in their schemes and I guessed this wasn't any different.
Their enthusiasm was infectious.
Unless, like me, you'd had a lifetime to get used to it.
Lee could be pretty exhausting, sometimes; or maybe that was just because I lived with him, so I got it twenty-four/seven. At least Elle always had one foot on the ground. You know, most of the time.
I smirked to myself, remembering a couple of weeks back when I had to carry her off a pool table before she committed to the really bad idea of skinny dipping. She definitely hadn't had two feet on the ground then.
