THE TAILGATE: A SHORT STORY

THE TAILGATE

A digital edition short story about young lovers at separate colleges, exploring the early years of the central relationship in Elin Hilderbrand's novel, The Matchmaker. Ever since their first kiss, Dabney has known that she and Clen are an unsplittable unit - essentially the same person in two different bodies. But when she arrives at the tailgate to see sparks flying between Clen and Jocelyn, a girl with dark blue eyes and luscious black hair, Dabney fears the collapse of a bond she has never questioned before, a bond so important that she'll be lost without it.
