THRILL OF THE CHASE

TIM BECKER

YEAR: 1995 - 1996

AGE: 18

RELATIONSHIP: Aimee's Crush (June 1995 - June 1996) / Dated 2 weeks

STORYLINE:

In June 1995 Aimee Skyler and her friends began hanging out with Tim Becker, Brendon Benson and their friends. The "Jocks" in the class above them. Erica Henson had a major crush on Tim so she tried my best not to like him either. It was really hard until Aimee met Jason Kenny but then Tim admits in her 1995 yearbook that he had a crush on her. So did Brendon so she brushed it off as the Jocks competing for a touch down.

After Jason broke up with Aimee in November 1995, Tim started asking her to hang out. It was never an official date but the went to see the movie Scream and Aimee really just wanted to scream at him for not at least holding her hand during all of the horror. He'd also invite her over to watch movies in his bedroom. There was definitely tension between the two but perhaps Aimee wasn't sending him any signals.

When Tim finally asked Aimee out in June 1996 she was excited but in ran Chad Lyons. That guy who's photo she had not forgotten.
