A Losing Position

A Losing Position

ByAdam Cines

Seventeen-year-old Duncan Hines knows he’s fat. So does everyone at Fairmont High School, which is why they call him Duncan Doughnuts. Doughy for short. Duncan’s life goals consist of becoming a chess grandmaster, kissing Julie Parker (in his dreams), and limiting the amount of bullying the Crush Pack inflicts upon him and his friends. This all changes when Julie, his idealized model of perfection, drops him this bombshell: If he loses weight, then she’ll date him. Duncan knows Julie’s request is pretty messed up. Her justification is that she could only date someone with a runner’s mentality. Duncan is a chess nerd, a Crush Pack target, and he’s only spoken to Julie twice. He’s not sure why she would even consider dating a guy like him. On the other hand, he knows he can’t resist the chance of dating the girl he’s fantasized about for the past year. So Duncan ignores the red flags and embarks on a weight loss journey with his younger sister, Dina, to make the girl of his dreams a reality.
