High school is overrated.
It's romanticized and played up to be the best years a person gets in their life. For Dani Porter, it's the opposite. Her high school experience is filled with endless drama, pointless conflict, and lots of confusion. Dani feels pressured to live up to everyone's expectations of who she should be and loses who she truly is along the way.
Dani and her friends go on a journey as they discover the ins and outs of romance, friendship, and their own teenage minds.
"I'm so, so sorry," I rush out while his back is still turned to me, "I wasn't looking where I was going, and I really didn't mean to make you crash."
He turns around with a slightly shocked expression that he masks quickly by clearing his throat. "Hey, hey, it's okay," he reassures, putting both his hands out as a gesture for me to calm down, "No harm done."
I hear his words, but they don't register as I stare at the bloody scrapes on both his hands. "Yes, harm done. You're bleeding," I frown deeply as I grab his hands to inspect the injuries.
"They're just scrapes. I've had worse," he says sheepishly, letting out an awkward cough at the end.
I look up at him to find his cheeks coated with a light pink color. There's something about his face that seems very familiar. His skin is pale with a slight tan and his eyes are a light hazel, they almost look golden in this lighting. His cheekbones and jawline are slightly defined.
The second I realize who he is, I let go of his hands and most of the remorse I felt dissipates into the cool, autumn air. "What are you doing back here?"
