I’m going to be completely honest and up front about this. As a woman, I was terribly offended by the messages embodied in your writing. I was, in fact, so offended that I couldn’t finish this chapter, and I’ll explain why
Delilah is seventeen years old and a virgin, but she’s “embarrassed” by it. I think it’s very sad that you’ve chosen to portray a main character who sees sex as something that isn’t meant to be enjoyed and isn’t done because the character feels they’re ready or anything. Here the only reason you’ve shown Delilah wanting to have sex is because she’s embarrassed that she hasn’t done it yet—like it’s a race or something. That is unspeakably degrading to teenagers everywhere; sex isn’t a race, and you should have a better reason to have sex besides “everyone else is doing it”.
So, yeah. I was offended by this. Very offended. I think this sends out the wrong message to teenage girls everywhere, and buys into common themes running in 21st century society regarding women and sexuality. This is exactly the sort of thing feminists and women in general are trying to fight against.
I’ll step aside from all of that and look at your writing itself.
You have numerous grammatical errors throughout this that really distract. I took the liberty of running this chapter through a spell-checker, and the majority of those errors were caught. So please, run your writing through a spell-checker before posting it. It only take a few minutes, and there’s one inside FictionPress’s document manager.
"Slumping in my chair I pouted at the paper" [Punctuation: comma after "chair"]
"I pouted at the paper, my teacher Mr. Albert eyed" [Grammar: run-on sentence, comma should be a period]

"study for the this stupid test" [Typo: you don't need both "the" and "this"]
"latest argument, things were really bad" [Grammar: run-on sentence, comma should be a period]
"Can you repeat it, please." [Grammar: period should be a question mark]
"at the labs ceiling." [Punctuation: labs is possessive, not plural; there should be an apostrophe]
"Kane's best friend and Line Backer." [Grammar: "linebacker" is one word, and it isn't capitalized]

"They havent been up to standard" [Punctuation: apostrophe in "haven't"]
"you wont be prepared" [Punctuation: apostrophe in "won't"]

| Amy Lawsford 6/9/12 . chapter 5
Hey, great chapter, I can't wait to see what happens next. I enjoyed how the ending was kind of a cliff hanger xD
I really hope that Lilah gets with Ren _
Also, do you have a consistent pattern for posting or is it just random? Either way, I can't wait. Bye.

I absolutely cannot read dialogue when it's formatted like that...
| Guest 6/8/12 . chapter 5
Great story! :)
| Amy Lawsford 6/6/12 . chapter 4
Hey there, I would really appreciate if when your characters talk you would have a new line for them. That way it's not all bunched up, it makes it harder to read. For example:
"So how was it?" he said.
"I can't do this."
Instead of: 'how was it' he said, 'I can't do this'. Also you seem to make a lot of typos like me _
Anyway, I really LOVED your story! I couldn't stop reading it it is so good. I can't wait for the next chapter! Update soon?
