My First Love

71 pages1 hour


Take the journey with Leigha Uvari as she becomes a woman, meets her first love, and juggles the big issue of life, her virginity.

Seeing him, Zain Devold, for the first time as he climbs onto the bus to start at his new school, moving from the big city to this group of small towns and the gated community that holds all the amenities of life.

Leigha is too young to know what love is, all she knows is that he makes her heart skip a beat and weak in the knees. Befriending his sister keeps her close to him over the years and into High School. Loving him from afar because she cannot tell him how she feels.

During their budding friendship, he realizes her real intentions. Wanting to lose her virginity to him more than anything. He will not allow it. Finally getting him to express the way he feels about her. Leigha creates this great love affair in her mind.

Then he is gone. Disappeared info the night. No explanation, no note, no phone call. She never learns why they left. Even after their parents move back without them. There is no way Leigha will ask what happened or where is the love of her life? She believes there will never be this profound of a love for another man again.

Nine years later, two children and one failed marriage, Leigha is bartending at one of the taverns in a small town outside of the gated community in which they grew up. Learning of his Mother's death makes her wonder if he will return for the funeral.

Sauntering into the tavern, exhausted and full of sorrow, Zain Devold bellies up to the bar to get drunk, chase away the hurt that lives inside from losing his Mother. Leigha comes to take his order. They stare at one another for what seems like an eternity. All of the questions she has must wait. The pain on his face is extremely thick.

As the night goes on and the tavern empties they have time to talk. She closes the joint for the night letting him stay while she cleans. She can't seem to make him leave. Not just yet.

Will Zain finally accept the one thing that Leigha so willingly wanted to give him as teenagers? One night of pure passion, an ecstacy that she knows only he can give her. Or will they leave the past where it belongs? In the past....
