Here's Linda's story:
My senior year, I thought this guy named Jake, who went to a different school, was pretty cute. I always saw him at track meets and ball games. He could run the quarter mile like you wouldn't believe. He'd make a bunch of touchdowns against us at football games, and my friends would yell at me each time he did, like I'D jinked our team or something (truth was, we had a really awful football team). But he wasn't that great at basketball. EVERYONE knew I had a crush on him--even though I never even talked to the guy--even my yearbook staff teacher. So, at one track meet, my teacher made me point him out so she could take a picture of him for me. And that was the extent of my stalking days!!
I love your crush story, Linda! And I love that your crush Jake sounds a lot like Luke, your football-playing hero of The Stillburrow Crush. Coincidence? :)
