I’ve been fortunate enough to have some wonderful writers in my critique group read my work. I appreciate their feedback. What’s interesting is that while everyone likes Tasmyn, all the women love Michael.
Michael Sawyer is a senior at King High. He’s lived right outside King all his life. Michael’s parents, Marly and Luke, own and operate Sawood Nursery, a large and successful landscaping and plant nursery in the country side just beyond the border of King.
Michael’s sister Lela is in her second year of college in Virginia. During her high school years, she established a small gift shop as part of Sawood. She likes the artistic end of the business while Michael enjoys horticulture at the nursery. He works there three days a week and most weekends.
The Sawyers live in a large log cabin adjacent to the nursery. Michael drives his vintage ’65 convertible Mustang to school every day. He has a small group of close friends, most of whom he has known for years.
Oh. . did I mention that Michael is gorgeous? His light brown hair and incredible green eyes have inspired more than one swoon among the female population at King High. But Michael doesn’t seem to notice that. He’s friendly, but he hasn’t ever had a serious girlfriend.
Maybe he’s just waiting for the right girl to come along. . .
