“What the hell are you doing here?”

“I’ve been coming to this gym for the past year. What is your reason?”

“You don’t own the gym. You can’t stop people from coming here.”

“Are you here with a gang of girls? Did they put you up to this?” Noah looked around, wondering if at any moment one of his ex-conquests was suddenly going to pop out and make an appearance.

“I can’t believe your ego. I don’t have to take this. There are other rooms.” She pressed several buttons, and left the room.

His peace had been ruined because he didn’t trust her. Turning off his machine, he followed her, finding her standing in the weight room. She looked like a fish out of water, exactly as Sarah had described her.

“Do you have a clue what you’re doing?”

“God, do you own this room as well?” She walked back into the main hall, and there were several people walking toward them. Grabbing her hand, he pushed her into one of the private sauna rooms. “What the hell are you doing?”

“You don’t have a clue what you’re doing here, so tell me who put you up to this.”

“No one?”

“You just happened to be at Bruce’s gym out of pure coincidence.”

“No, and I don’t have to tell you.”

“I’ll make your life hell at school!”

She glared. “I dare you, and I’ll make sure every single girl knows you’re here on a Saturday.”

They both stared at each other, neither of them showing signs of winning. “I’m here because it’s the only place I get peace and quiet. You must have heard what Jessica did?”

“I heard about the scene. Who hasn’t?”

“Exactly. I come here so I can work out and be left alone. Now, I’ve told you why, you tell me?”

She sighed. “I just want to point out that you interrupted my training time, not the other way around. You could have run anywhere else, and I wouldn’t care.”

“Fine, just tell me.”

“I’m doing it as a surprise to my mom.”

“I don’t get it.”

“Look at me. I know you all call me fat, cow, whale, chubby. I embarrass my mom, so here I am, trying to make her proud.”

He’d heard all the names she’d been called, and he’d laughed at a couple of them. But really he didn’t see a problem with her weight. So she was a couple of pounds heavier than people would like, so what? He happened to like her tits. There were many times during gym at school where he’d stared as her tits bounced. Out of all of the girls in high school, she had the biggest rack.


Now his gaze landed on her breasts.

“Seriously? My eyes are up here, you creep.”

“You don’t have a clue what you’re doing.”

“So? I’ll figure it out, and come college there will be a dazzling new me, and there will be no sobbing in sight.”

“What you’re trying to do is lose weight. Where is your trainer? What are your starting points? What about your diet? There’s a lot more to losing weight than just getting on a treadmill, and hoping for the best. You want to be the best that you can be, then you need some help.”

“I don’t want to make this complicated, okay? This was just about doing something in private with no one knowing, and now you know.”

“Believe it or not, I won’t blab.”

“Sure you won’t.”

Her sarcasm was grating on his nerves.

Chapter Two

This couldn’t be happening. Her perfectly ordered plan of losing weight without anyone knowing was about to be completely ruined. Elsa forced back the tears as she stared back at the star of her high school.

This sucked.

“I won’t. I’m not a fucking liar.”

“Don’t swear at me.” They had never spoken more than a handful of words at each other during their time in high school.

“How do I know you’re not going to tell everyone?”

“You keep my appearance here quiet, and I won’t tell.”

“Fine. I can do that.”

“Good. Can I go now, or are you going to lecture me about something else?” she asked.
