Cute playground romance that all starts with a dare.

I Dare You

by shygirl

He says, "I dare you."

"No I won't do it."

He replies, "Fine, I double dare you."

Dang. I can't turn down a double dare. It would make me the biggest chicken in the grade.

"Fine, I'll do it because I'm not a chicken."

He says, "Good, do it then."

I squeeze my eyes so tight all I see is black. I reach down grab the wriggling earthworm and plop it on my head. I didn't think it was possible but I squeeze my eyes even tighter.

It's wiggling in my hair. But in my life I have never been so surprised from what happens next. I feel the boy who dared me's LIPS ON MY CHEEK! He pulls the worm out of my hair and then says,

"I knew you weren't a chicken."
