Making Mischief by Elizabeth Young

By Elizabeth Young

Abby Morland's been making mischief due to the fact that she was once not-so-sweet 16, whilst she spied wonderful man from the local being attacked via curvaceous Cara, the "Topless Piranha." It was once a racy, tasty, highly spiced piece of gossip Abby could not face up to passing alongside. yet years later, her indiscretion can be coming again to hang-out her -- due to the fact that she now would not brain a bit nibble of man herself. With 4 cousins, weddings, and a re-emergent piranha within the offing, the recipe for making extra mischief is to hand, and it could possibly simply flip man in Abby's course eventually!

Even if it’s only for fifteen minutes, even if I’m only Rachel-down-the-road, it’ll keep me going for days. Alas, it was not to be. “Sorry, Rache,” he said. ” Her spark of hope died. ” “I’ll come with you,” I said. ” We left fifteen minutes later, just after Lindsay departed for her driving lesson. ” Rachel asked the other two. ” In heat that shimmered off the tarmac and made the birds too drowsy to sing, Rachel and I ambled to the bus, a good five minutes’ walk away. ” She made a face. “He used to have one for me, until Lindsay told him I hated it.

Only don’t dare ever tell her I told you,” she said. “She’d be hideously embarrassed—she’s known him since she was about four. ” She put on a breathy, heart-fluttery voice. ‘And as his strong brown fingers gently sloshed her knee with Dettol…’ “ Under a guilty little laugh I was empathizing all too well. ” Andrew was my elder brother. Lindsay laughed. “Don’t you ever tell him, but I once had a massive crush on Andrew. ” “I was fourteen. ” We laughed together. What a relief it was to be past that embarrassing stage when you still hadn’t even had a snog, let alone a boyfriend.

Abby, don’t tell me you don’t remember? Bad-boy Guy? ” I was struck momentarily dumb. “Abby? ” “Er, more or less… But I haven’t heard Lindsay or Rachel mention him in ages! ” “They had. I don’t think either of them had seen him for a couple of years.
