Ginny Cotton, bike riding, chess playing, loan processor, has set a new goal: find someone to have sex with. Soon. As in tonight. It’s the only way to finally get over Jason, her best friend, the guy she’s been waiting for since high school— the guy who is now engaged to her sister. She’s saved her virginity for him since he doesn’t believe in premarital sex. What better way to get over Jason than to have sex with someone else? The hot guy Ginny meets through a dating site seems like the perfect choice. There’s only one problem. To achieve her goal, Ginny must first overcome the anxiety that has been holding her back her whole life.


“What’s this for?” Pierce tapped the fifty dollar bill he found stuck to the refrigerator door with three of Caleb’s letter magnets. They spelled the word BET.

“I thought it was self -explanatory. You’re seeing Ginny again. That means the bet’s back on.” Steele put a bowl of macaroni and cheese in front of Caleb.

Pierce opened the refrigerator, got out the container of orange juice and took a long drink. He was hungry, but with a seven -course meal ahead of him he figured he’d better wait to eat. He closed the refrigerator door and stared at the fifty. “I’m not seeing Ginny because of the bet.”

“But is she only seeing you because of her offer?”

“I don’t think so.”

“But you don’t know.”

He didn’t. He also didn’t want to talk about it. Pierce ended the conversation by replying to Caleb, who was chatting excitedly about Libby, the teenager who was coming over to babysit for the evening. There was no way a three-year-old could be expected to sit through a three hour dinner.

Using the reflection on the sliding glass door as a mirror, Pierce tried, for the third time, to get the tie done right.

“Is that my tie you’re mangling?” Steele asked.

“Yes,” Pierce said.

“Dude, you can’t wear that shirt,” Steele said.

“Why, does it clash with the tie?”

“Yeah, but that’s not why. It needs to be ironed.”

“I don’t iron.”

Steele grunted and left the room. He came back a moment later with a brick red, wrinkle-free dress shirt. “Here, wear this.”

Pierce changed into it.

“This was a bad idea wasn’t it?” he asked as he put the tie around his neck. “Bringing Ginny, I mean.”

“I’m not even going to answer that.” Steele reached for the two dangling ends of the tie and quickly made a perfect knot.

“If I bring a guest they’ll have to act civilized, right?”

“When did you become delusional?”

“When did you become so cynical?”

“I’m being realistic. You know that Dad will be his usual pompous self and Charmaine will say things to embarrass you. You obviously weren’t thinking clearly when you invited Ginny.”
