Part 2 Preview
That concludes Part 1 of The Chase. Ah, it feels good to reminisce, doesn't it? The loves of your childhood are often the easiest to remember fondly, and skew to your liking. That's exactly what Part 1 is - the beginning, the awkward and unknowing introduction to much larger things. What comes next is that slight maturity, between child and adult where feelings become tangible and love become a much harder and complex feeling. The girls I've known in these years have left a much deeper impression as a result, and make up some of the most defining relationships of my life. In Part 2, I will spare you no details as I address the following:
The first date curse
Cringe along with me as you read about some of the worst dating attempts arbitrated in history
Religion and Love
An already complicated premise becomes more clouded as faith and morality attempt to reconcile themselves in my tiny teenage brain
Touching, lots of touching
Things get weird. Mom and dad, thanks for the support, but you might want to stop reading here
You brought a drunk girl home with you? You read her this story?
Things get meta as a present-day me finds a new companion to share my stories with, in an over-arcing theme that examines the past and the present at the same time
When, Nick, when?
Part 2 starts at the end of this December, and I will do my darnedest to keep the pace of one chapter a month. However, the stories get longer and more involved from here, so we're going to play it by ear.
Check back late December for a fresh slice of awkwardness. See you then!
