Surrender by Sarah M. Cradit
Posted by brriske
At sixteen, Anasofiya Deschanel is terrified at the notion of sharing herself with anyone. Rather than face that fear, she hides behind her books and imagination, where her heart feels safe.
Secretly, Oz Sullivan’s heart has always belonged to Ana. Fearful of scaring her, he chooses instead to pursue girls who are nothing like him, leaving him empty and unfulfilled.
Circumstances find them miserable at their junior prom, after problems with their respective dates. Ana and Oz must decide if they’re willing to surrender their fears, and leap forward into the unknown.
Dive into this Crimson and Clover Lagniappe, and indulge in this flashback story of first love.
(Note: This story was originally published as part of the All Our Love Anthology by Novel Grounds)
This is the short story of one night between Oz and Ana. Oz, Ana, and Nicholas have been the three amigos forever, as long as Ana can remember. At 16 Nicholas knows Oz loves Ana and tells him all the time to “go for it”. But Oz loves Ana so very much he’s afraid he’ll screw it up and ruin their friendship. Ana doesn’t date but on the night of junior prom she agrees to go with Calvin Whittaker.. When events lead to Ana and Oz being alone in the hotel after the after prom party what follows is a night they’ll never forget. I love how Sarah explains so much in a short story and now we understand the dynamics better between the three of them. Love these little off shoots of the main story and learning more about the Deschanel clan. 5 awesome fangs.
