Do you remember the first time you fell in love?
Sometimes it happens in early in life and like two trees who have been planted close together your roots intertwine, and you hold hands, navigating each other through many of life's ups and downs.

Or, in the teen years when everything is intensified and exciting and scary all at the same time. This love can soar you to the highest heights, then send you barreling toward the earth at a frightening speed. Oh, but the thrill of it all.

Sometimes love happens later in life. Like two wandering hearts who find a home in each other, and you feel blessed at not having left this earth without experiencing the wonder of it.

Love isn’t always pretty, sometimes it’s pretty hard, but it is always worth it.

Real love will never leave you alone for too long. It may take you by surprise, like a cloudburst of confetti, or, it may come to you slowly like a sweet lullaby. Ah, but when it happens, you are forever changed by it, like Nixie; the star of my story 27 x's, featured in  

First Love: A Summer Solstice Valentine’s Day Anthology

Nixie works at Recurve, a popular shooting range. She spends all her spare time at work, or at practice. She has grown accustom to an almost nonexistent love life, but when good looking Garrett shows up for lessons, Cupid shows up too. This new development brings out Nixie’s competitive nature, and pits two rival shooters against each other for first place in the tournament, and in Garrett’s heart.
