Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

Aisha Gray heard footsteps approaching. She opened her eyes slowly, her lips moist and her body still tingling from David Barnes's kiss. If that's my dad, I'm going to die of embarrassment, she thought.

Peering into the black night, Aisha moved off the front porch and halfway down the small flight of steps leading up to the pedimented doorway of the Grays' bed-and-breakfast. She could see a shadow coming toward them, moving very quickly up the sloping road that led to Gray House.

Oh, my God! she realized in horror. It's Christopher. What's he doing here?

Then it dawned on her. That was what Christopher's postcard had meant.

You'll know soon enough what 1 mean when 1 say I've started to see everything in a new light, Christopher had written. He'd meant that he was coming home.

Aisha turned quickly to David. "I don't believe it," she whispered. "Did you hear that? My mom's calling me from inside." She took his arm and practically dragged him down the front steps of the porch, glancing nervously in Christopher's direction. He was just passing an arrow-shaped road sign that said Climbing Way, which meant he was going to be knocking on her front door in eight seconds or less.

David stumbled on the bottom step. His brow was furrowed in confusion. "I didn't hear anything," he said.

"Well, uh . . . maybe you should get your ears checked." Aisha grimaced. That didn't come out right. "I mean, you'd better go that way to get to the road, because my mom might see you . . . and I'll get in big trouble." Aisha pointed to a dense clump of pine trees located several yards away, in the oppositedirection from Christopher.

"But why—"

"Shhh! I'll talk to you tomorrow," Aisha said, giving him a push in the direction of the grove. "Bye." She ran up the steps as fast as she could. Her heart was pounding and her face felt hot and flushed.

Oh, God, 1 hope he didn't see us kissing; Aisha prayed, peeking out through the living room window. She was shaking all over, partly from David's kiss, partly from the close call, and partly from the anticipation of seeing Christopher again.



Christopher Shupe's heart slammed down to his feet. Under the porch light, just fifty yards away, Aisha was making out with some guy. Some white guy. She sure looked as if she was enjoying herself. For a moment Christopher stared at them, totally immobilized. Then he rushed forward. He would pound the jerk who was kissing his girlfriend.

Aisha was dragging the guy off her porch now, and Christopher stopped short. If he caught the guy, which it would be easy to do, what exactly would happen next? He tried to get a better look at him, but it was too dark to be able to make out his features. Suddenly the guy disappeared into the trees and Aisha ran into the house.

Christopher broke into a run. He stumbled over a rock in Aisha's driveway, but he quickly recovered and finally reached the front steps.

Breathing heavily and frantically turning in every direction, Christopher searched the front lawn for the creep who—just seconds before—had had his tongue in Aisha's mouth.

"Damn!" he said. He threw his fist into the side of a tree. "Bastard."

He took several deep breaths, trying to calm down, and paced back and forth in front of the inn. He could go around to the back and knock on Aisha's bedroom window, the way he used to do every morning. He could demand that she tell him what was going on.

Christopher sighed, remembering how he had stopped at Gray House every day at the end of his newspaper route and woken Aisha up for a good-morning kiss. Under the current circumstances, however, it was probably safer to ring the front doorbell. For all he knew, that creep had sneaked in through her bedroom window just now.

After a few minutes, when he felt a little less agitated, he stepped up to the front door. It swung open even before he had a chance to ring the doorbell, and Aisha's smiling face came into view.

"Christopher!" she said, giving him a warm hug. "What are you doing here?" She seemed genuinely happy to see him, and Christopher was confused. Was it possible that he had mistaken the situation? He frowned deeply. Absolutely not. There was no way anyone could explain away that lip lock.

Christopher pushed Aisha away roughly. "I saw the whole thing, Eesh," he said tightly. "Who was that guy?"

Her face fell. "I can explain," she said gravely. She opened the door a little wider and gestured for him to come inside. "Come in. Let's talk."

They sat awkwardly on opposite ends of an overstuffed sofa in the living room. Neither of them spoke for what seemed like an eternity. Christopher was still reeling from the shock of seeing Aisha, the love of his life, the woman he had proposed marriage to just five months earlier, playing tonsil hockey with someone else. It certainly hadn't taken long for her to get over him, he thought bitterly.

Finally Aisha cleared her throat. "It's not what you think," she began. "I mean, Da—that guy and I have been out a few times and all, but it's nothing like what you and I had."

Her eyes roamed the room as though she was trying to figure out what to say. Christopher remained grimly silent. His throat felt tight and dry as he waited for her to say something, anything, to excuse what he had just witnessed.

"I still love you, Christopher. And I never stopped loving you." Her lower lip began to tremble. "Please believe me."

    My Feelings On Two Timing Aisha

    I believe Two Timing Aisha is a amazing book to read. The story makes you feel sorry or happy for the people in the story. Aisha was torn through two guys and love one more than the other but never let the one she didn't,love know how she felt. I think that she should have just told David that she had a boyfriend along time ago. I felt bad for everyone eles just because they did the same thing. But not really! I love this book and I will read the next book. I give this book a 5 stars because it was interesting.
