I hope you enjoy part III of Truth or Dare. In case you missed it, Part I|Part II. Please let me know what you think should happen next. How should Indigo start off her summer of fun, frivolity and being a “normal” teen.

Truth or Dare – Contemporary, Young Adult, Romance

When the diner crowd started to dwindle, Indigo left again. Right after telling Yvette she would take her up on her offer of having the summer off. It almost made her laugh to see the look on her bosses face.

Sitting in her car, she took out her cell phone and called her best friend, Carmen Rodriguez.

“Can I stay there tonight?”

“What happened to hello? How are you? Other forms of greeting?” Carmen laughed.

Indigo groaned, “Carm. Please?”

“Fine.” Carmen sighed, “No. And that’s just because you asked.” She paused, “Do you have to ask?”


“What’s going on?”

Indigo paused, “I’ll explain when I get there.”

“Where are you?”

“Work. I stayed to help Yvette.”

“Wait a minute. I thought you had a date with Gregg.”

“I’ll explain when I get there.” Hanging up, she started the car, turned on the radio and pulled out of the parking lot into traffic. It took her half an hour to drive downtown to Carmen’s parents’ house.

Carmen opened the door and came out onto the porch as soon as she pulled up in front of the house, parked and got out the car.


“Can I get in the house first?” Indigo laughed.

“Fine.” Carmen closed and locked the front door and then led Indigo upstairs to her room. “What happened?”

“It was all a big joke. On me.” She flopped back onto the bed. “Apparently it was an elaborate game of Truth or Dare.”


“And that’s not even the most interesting part.”

“It gets better?”

“Or worse? Depending on how you look at it.” Indigo sat up, hugged her knees to her chest.

“What happened?”

“I kissed Morgan. Well, he kissed me.” She paused, “And I kinda liked it.”
