Sneak Peak at Real Live Boyfriends by E. Lockhart

Here's sneak peak of another letter from Noel to Roo, ah that boy!

Huge thanks to E.Lockhart for giving us a glimpse of what's to come and for writing one of my favourite couples.



Roo,
     I just dropped you off and came home to find the house dark. Parents asleep, little girls asleep, everyone in bed before my curfew.
     I banged on Mom's door so she knew I was home, then climbed out on the porch roof outside my bedroom window. Tried to stealth it down the rose trellis. Figured I'd sneak back out and see you again because: all of a sudden I missed you like a complete sap. Even though I just saw you.
     Planned the grand romantic gesture.
     Nearly died trying to climb down rose trellis.
     Really. Nearly died.
     Seriously.
     Okay, didn't nearly die. But did scrape my arm on some thorns.
     The need for Band-Aids trumped my plan to sneak up to your bedroom window and throw pebbles until you saw me standing there in the moonlight.
     Grand romantic gesture crashes and burns.
     Bright side: I did use the bacon Band-Aids you got me. There are three on my arm with actual blood soaking through.
     In the moonlight,
     Noel

Sigh. How can the next four couples beat that? Come back to find out!
