Tasting The Boy Next Door



“But I don't need anyone’s help!” Melissa Smyth yelled. “I’m nineteen years old and damn sure I can cope alone for one measly month!” She sounded like a spoiled brat but was beyond caring. Righteous indignation made her blood boil.

Her father, Richard Smyth, spread his hands and sighed. “How many times must we go through this, Melissa? Rory is just going to help around the house and garden while we’re away. What’s so bad about that?”

Although he spoke in a calm, soothing manner, his words only made Melissa angrier. She stamped her foot in exasperation. Her parents might like to dress this up as doing her a favor but Melissa knew what it really meant. They didn’t trust her. Thought she needed a babysitter.

And to make matters worse who had they asked to help? Rory Thompson. Freckly, bespectacled, goody-two-shoes Rory Thompson, the geekiest boy in her class. Melissa had spent most of her childhood trying to escape him as he trailed after her all doe-eyed. But as he was the son of their next-door neighbor, she'd been hard-pressed to avoid him. Thankfully he’d been traveling the last three years so she'd not had to see his dopey face. But he’d come home last week and been recruited by Melissa's father to keep things ticking over whilst he and Melissa's mother, Claire, were on a business trip in Dubai.
