Shelby Gore in Cedarville?
Why is Shelby Gore black-listed? Cedarville is a small town of only 1,400 residents, where over 1,000 men and women local and from nearby towns work at the Cedarville Steel plant. Most everyone buys what they need at Young’s Family & Home Center (OPEN 6 am to 11 pm). The entire Gore family moved to Cedarville in late 1972, Gus had a new job starting as the new third shift supervisor at the local steel plant. He and Marcella had to get ready for the special little girl they were adopting. Shelby arrived on her first birthday to a world she was not accustomed to.
Over the next fifteen and a half years, she grew into a beautiful young lady, with wants and desires far beyond her young age. For the first 15 years, she had her best friend Susie Wilson to bounce the reckless ideas off of. That all ended on Shelby’s 16th birthday, when she announced there would be no more Friday night parties at her house. These parties were just a given, FREE snacks, soft drinks, and personal items to go with the use of her 12-person hot-tub/spa. A large private backyard, outdoor propane fireplace on the very large screened in back porch, with bad weather drop down curtains. Not one person has ever gotten into any type of trouble.
No one had considered the costs involved, who was paying for and cooking the hotdogs, hamburgers, and providing several brands of soft drinks. How much would propane, and personal care items consumed by one hundred teenagers every Friday night for the last six years cost? The Gore family live comfortably, but they are not rich. Someone else had to be paying these bills. Three local businesses have donated a new gymnasium, football field, and science lab to Cedarville High school. This is millions of dollars coming from somewhere, but who is providing this kind of money in such a small town?
Shelby Gore has the best tan of any girl at Cedarville High, what boy in his right mind would not want a date with this very sexy girl, but not one date since that last party at her house last September 25th. There were at least 100 students attending, maybe the other girls got jealous? Just maybe Shelby was too friendly with every boy there celebrating her upcoming birthday. Today is Thursday April 14th, 1988, but there is more to this girl than her sexy good looks, there’s a contract out on her freedom and her life… How will she be able to survive until tomorrow?
