This is a short story I wrote in high school and have worked on throughout my creative writing classes. I now remember my life in three chapters: BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER. Cassie can think of nothing better than summer. There are no rules, no teachers, no schoolwork, just summer. Until one night when her life is changed by a chance meeting. Eric, an MMA fighter with a bad streak, asks her to ditch the party they are at and hang out with him. Cassie takes a chance and trusts him. From then on nothing is the same.
