Sneak Peek

We didn’t speak for the first few minutes as he led me to a spot near the edge looking out over the water under the starlit sky. It was beautiful! Just when my nerves were about to fray from the silence he spoke. “What made you choose to move here?”

I cleared my throat and tried not to stare at his beautiful profile like a deviant. “I met the principal of the high school years ago at a retreat. She told me all about this place and I kinda fell in love with it just from her description alone. Once I was out of university she offered me the job and that was that.” He seemed to go over my words in his head before carrying on again and I couldn’t help but notice how mature he seemed, and how much different to what I’d expect from a high school jock.  “What about your family, where are they?” “I don’t really have any to speak of, just an aunt and a few cousins back home.” “And where is that?” “A place called Haddonfield New Jersey.”

Again he grew silent but since he wasn’t looking my way, just staring out over the water, I had no idea what he was thinking. And then he reached for my hand and my heart literally stopped beating in my chest for a few seconds that felt more like hours. “I’m wondering if I should wait until the class is over before taking you to bed.” My eyes almost popped out of my head and I tried releasing his hold on my hand to no avail. Now my beating heart was in my lungs as my thoughts splintered. Is this really happening or had I fallen into an alternate universe? Why me? And why this… guy, I can’t call him a boy after that statement, but why had he chosen me? Though I don’t teach at the high school I’ve seen many of the young ladies about town and they’re mostly the proverbial high school knockouts.

Didn’t he have a girlfriend? It’s hard to imagine that someone like him didn’t. So what exactly was going on here? Am I a lost bet or a dare? All those thoughts ran through my head at warp speed as well as one other. Why am I not the one in control? I’m the adult after all. Why can’t I open my mouth and put a stop to this before it’s too late? Before I destroy everything I’d worked so hard for, for what can only be a few moments of pleasure. But even though I knew the danger I couldn’t seem to open my mouth and tell him he had the wrong idea. If I was going to do anything it would be now. But the longer I held my silence the more I was giving into him. Now he turned and looked down at me, and still without uttering a word, reached out and ran the back of his fingers across my cheek. My legs almost buckled beneath me.
