ROGERS by Erin Lockwood!


YA Psychological Romance

Stand Alone




My alarm goes off at four am. It takes an hour to get to the studio, and then my ballet
training begins. I go to school for a few hours, and then it’s back to the studio for
more training. Go to bed. Repeat the whole process the next day.
I hate it.
My time at school is a blur, except for biology. I don’t rush through that class,
because I get to see Roger Byrnes. He probably doesn’t even know I exist, but my
heart beats a little faster when I see him walk through the classroom door with his
messy hair and carefree attitude. He has so much energy. But then he stares off into
the distance, and I wonder what he’s thinking. It’s the highlight of my
I wish I could quit ballet so I could be a normal teenager. Someone who Roger would
want to be with. I could use some excitement in my life…I bet Roger could give that
to me.
Roger keeps running with me screaming over his shoulder, and I’m getting seriously
worried he’s not going to slow down when he reaches the ice-cold Pacific Ocean. I
can feel the freezing wet splashes on my legs, and as he runs into deeper water,
some of the splashes reach up to my face.
I’ve been playfully kicking and screaming for him to put me down, but now, I’m
gripping his upper back, not wanting him to lower me at all. Don’t let the turquoise
water of Carmel fool you; it’s damn cold, even in the summer. Girls wear bikinis on
the beach, and surfers wear wetsuits all year-round. Even I know that.
“You broke a promise,” he says while his arm grabs me from over his shoulder and
moves me down.
The muscles in my legs bulge, and I clench them around his upper body, holding
myself high up on his shoulder.
“What are you? A cat?” he says, confused, as he tries to figure out what I’m doing
with my body.
I grab on to his head and use it as leverage to clench my thighs together over his
other shoulder. “I never broke a promise,” I say, unashamed. The only emotion going
through me right now is fear of going into the ice cold water. “I never
promised to call you.”
“Oh, that hurts my feelings,” he says dramatically.
He reaches up and tries one more time to pull me off of him, but I’m too
“How the hell are you stronger than me?” he exclaims, clearly frustrated that he’s
tried twice to throw me in the water with no success.
All he’s been able to do is make me slip down his body a little. My one leg is still
draped over his shoulder, and the other is wrapped around his back, holding on for
dear life. My face has moved from over his head to right in front of his
“Ballerinas are a lot stronger than you think,” I say with a calm, even

I’ve never kissed a boy before, and right now, I’m staring at one’s lips. They’re so full
and colorful; they look as if they’re full of fruit punch. I wonder what it would taste
like and feel like. If I just move my head a few inches closer…

“Maybe so,” he says, matching my even breath. “You might be stronger than me, but
I’m more clever.” He spreads his arms out, as if he’s going to give someone a huge
hug, and slowly, his body weight shifts back.
“No, no, no, no, no!” I scream once I realize there’s no stopping him from falling back
into the water.
