Eleanor and Valentine – Chapter 1
Valentine Weiss said he fell in love with Eleanor the day she beat all the boys at school in a race. They sulked but she didn’t care and flounced away with her chin held high. She didn’t notice him standing alone, watching her and smiling.

The next day an apple appeared on her desk with a tiny wreath of braided grass hanging from its stem. Eleanor whirled around and looked at the boys, one by one. When her gaze fell on Valentine, his head was down and he was writing on his slate.
