Rochelle kicked 15,000 word’s butt! Way to go, Rochelle! A bit belatedly, let’s honor her kickbuttness!
La Vie En Rose
When a new boy shows up for the last semester at Chloe’s arts magnet high school with a talent for sculpting and an eye for her, he could be her ticket to getting over her years-long crush on her best friend’s boyfriend, but the relationship he pulls her into isn’t as rosy as she’d imagined.
All I Can Think about in Social Studies
Is the distance between
Julian’s elbow and mine
On the rectangular desk we share
His right-handedness to my left
But me sitting to his right so our arms
Wage wars while we take down notes
On bigger-scale battles with
Victories and setbacks
That feel much less decisive.
But when his elbow knocks against mine
It’s the complacent tap
Of a buddy, a friend, a sidekick,
Who will ask me after class
If there’s anything he missed
And I won’t say:
Me. I’ve been right here beside you
OMG, is this all in ‘verse? Because holy cow, Rochelle, that’s amazing!
