The Online Minister (Entry 18)

This post has been removed for the novel's debut in April, 2012 . . .


    Elisa isn't your regular nerd.  She's not the kind of person who quotes Monty Python, or has a periodic table tattooed on her butt.  No she's a different sort altogether.  She carries a duct-taped Bible everywhere, wears bright-orange polyester pants, and dyes her hair with red kool-aid.
    Even though she tries slipping by apart from the crowds, it doesn't help that her best friend happens to be "The Boarder," one of the cutest and most popular boys in school.  He's not willing to let her go unnoticed—not until she goes to the homecoming dance with another guy.
   "The Boarder" starts acting weird after the date goes well, and Elisa begins wondering if he's only been looking at her as a friend or maybe something more.  She must choose between her best friend and "The Bad Boy," but will she make the right choice?


  1. Oooh! Love this story...gooose sweet. Sometimes I think the best moments in life come when we realize it's the right time to leap...

  2. Hey, I think you're having the same problem as Melynda...I wouldn't have known you had a new post if I didn't click on your main page (the side thingy on my blog still shows yesterday's post as the most current).

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Oh, I haven't posted it yet, but Peanut told me today (I picked her up for a movie) that she and Michelle (the new Mrs. D)are doing much better together. I didn't even ask her...she just told me. I'm so glad they're working it out.

  3. That is awesome--Peanut sounds so darling :)

    Blogger is being crazy lately. I hope it'll get fixed soon. I tried deleting my cookies and everything.

  4. Love this post! A bit of me wants the moment to last longer though!

  5. What a lovely story and you do paint the atmosphere so well with your words! Enjoyed it, thanks! :-)

  6. Such a beautiful post. Would have never guessed that you would be the one to first kiss him. All I can say is Awwwwwwwww...........Love is Grand!
