Young and Inexperienced Love

Adam Mann

Two very short stories about a boy meeting a girl, or girls. The first is at college, where it is not the number of girls but one very special girl who is as inexperienced as the boy. Hopefully she will take the lessons she has learned into her married life. The second is a young man meeting a series of young ladies, but not always at work, although sometimes work related.
