First I’ll copy pasta the highlights, so y’all have all the links without having to scroll down through my ranting and whining. The story thus far is: Ginger meets Kevin while working for his mother as a maid in episode one. In episode two Ginger learns of Kevin’s bad reputation and decides to confront him. She also decides that for the time being, they will be just friends. In episode three, Kevin tries to make good on his promise to be a real friend. He does this by taking Ginger to the pool, hoping to prove he isn’t ashamed to be seen with her. But this also marks Ginger’s official coming out. She meets Kevin’s sister Hannah, and one of Kevin’s cheerleader friends, Tonya. Then in episode four, Ginger molests a teddy bear and breaks her arm. But not at the same time. In episode five, Ginger’s best friends Aggie and Babs finally get wind of her coming out, and they demand a visit. (Or, Aggie demands a visit. Babs is almost always ambivalent.) In episode six, Ginger stumbled over something that Kevin had been hiding from her. When she didn’t flip out, Kevin still panicked and went into ultra-apology mode.
Now in episode seven, Ginger is attending her first day of high school. It’s a day so huge, it has to be split in half. And for the first half up to lunch Ginger, Aggie, and Babs are all learning that high school isn’t the same as junior high. But while everyone is acting friendly, the nerds are waiting for the other shoe to drop…
Without further ado, here is All Maid Up 7.
On a side note, if I keep writing at this rate, I should finish the whole series before the end of September. So, fingers crossed that I don’t get blocked before the end. =^) Oh, and When it’s over, I’ll check and see if folks are interested in me releasing an ebook version. At least one person on Twitter has said they’d like to have an ebook of the full story. They and one other reader have given high praise for the characters and dialogue, so I hope eventually to talk other readers into checking this out.
