Essays & Short Stories

LUCY:

He’s my brother’s best friend, I’ve known him since I was six years old, he’s home for the summer and my brother isn’t. Which means he’s the perfect guy to lose my virginity with. I’ve done the research: The Joy of Sex, Fear of Flying, all of Danielle Steele’s books. I just need to convince him that it’s a good idea to be my partner in my self-devised “Intro to Good Sex” course.

BEN:

We’ve been Kick the Can teammates, she’s cried on my shoulder, we worked on plays in high school. If she weren’t my best friend’s little sister, I’d have asked her out years ago. Her brother’s in the Navy now and I promised him I’d watch out for her. Pretty sure that doesn’t mean seeing her naked. Somehow she convinces me that it’s a good idea for us to have sex. And boy is it. Until we both head to college and have to decide whether this summer class is one we want to make a year-long thing…

Take a trip back in time to the 1980’s with this prequel to the nostalgic Boston Classic series, where the setting may be retro, but falling in and out of love hasn’t changed.
