Story Note

Disclaimer – If you want a story with lots of sex, look elsewhere. This is a love story. Seeing, as it is a love story, sex is in there, but it is in realistic balance in the characters’ lives. The story contains sexual encounters between high school age minors, and has some violence. If this offends you, or if it’s not legal for you to read, please do not read. This is pure fiction. No one in this story is a real person, living or deceased. Any similarities, is just a coincidence.
