Sheila didn't mean for it to turn out this way. Honestly, it started as a dare on Spring Break. Something her best friend Kelly dared her to do, since Kelly was on her own adventure with somebody she met on the Internet.
"You have to give it up, sometime." Kelly was talking about Shelia's virginity. At the time Sheila felt she might as well have been playing Russian Roulette. And then she met Alfie.
Seriously, she was going to make something up when she got back from Spring Break about her adventures in random sex. Only, Shelia told her friend that she guessed she was the biggest loser. Nothing happened which was a lie. Alfie was her secret. She didn't feel the need to explain anything to her friend.
Besides, she had Alfie to Skype to, every night now. It didn't happen that way in the beginning. Sure they texted. Still did. The phone calls came. And that was a new kind of happiness too. She really adored him. He made her laugh.
Of course, she hadn't told him her real age, but did that matter now? No, she'd been fortunate to find the one she belonged with. And it was Alfie. She was certain of it.
Sheila wanted so badly to see him again, but she wasn't sure if she'd get a chance at Zeke and Randi's wedding.
