TRUTH and DARE (short story) by Nathanael Green
Published in December of 2013 as an e-book
Simon is the second least popular kid in his summer camp. Sadly, the least popular kid in camp, Charlie Fergle, is going home and Simon knows he will be be the target of the nightly rounds of "truth or dare." But, Simon does not want to leave his summer camp because he has met the girl of his dreams, Opal Finley.
Well, he hasn't really met her properly. He has admired her from afar, he has tried to speak to her and he has failed in spectacular fashion every time.
So far, this makes TRUTH and DARE sound like a horrible short story, but it is actually very funny and very sweet.
This is my first short story by Nathanael Green, but I can guarantee it won't be my last.
I rate this short story 5 stars out of 5.
