I immediately snapped out of my daze with every eye in the room on me I smiled around the room laughing awkwardly until I my eyes met his.
“Sorry, Mr. J. I would say it won’t happen again but then we'd both know that would be a lie. I’m a constant daydreamer and the view of the brick wall that spans your entire window is so picturesque. I can't help but become mesmerized by it's beauty. “ I said with a mischievous smirk as my eyes sparkling with laughter.
“ I know what you mean, that is one incredible view I've got in my classroom. I mean that blue dumpster is a real work of art. I don't know how I manage to look away myself." He said jokingly as he chuckled and rolled his eyes at my latest smartass excuse for not paying attention.
"Pay attention next time I call roll, Okay? “ He said trying to look at me sternly but failing miserably.
“I'll see what I can do, but I am VERY busy campaigning for my re-election so I might not be able to visit that often.” I said in a joking manner while shrugging.
Mr.James and I have a pretty close relationship. I've been in his Homeroom and English classes since freshman year. We have very similar sense of humors, so we tend to tease each other a lot.
I Also go to him for just about everything. My parents are barely home and are more concerned with work than their daughter. And my older sister Harper went to New York for college three years ago and rarely calls and never visits. As a result, Mr. J is the closest thing I've got to family. I consider him sort of my Uncle.
“I understand, Madame President." he said chuckling while mock saluted me and began walking back to his desk until he suddenly stopped and turned to me.
"Hey Evelyn, do you mind keeping an eye on Aiden Thompson for me? He just moved here from California. He just so happens to be my nephew, so be nice to him!” He asked while smiling and pointing at me jokingly.
I brought my hand to my chest faking hurt. “ I’m always nice! But sure, I don’t mind. Anything for my favorite English teacher. Quick question, where is he?” I asked looking around the class to see if I spotted any unfamiliar faces.
Just I said that, a male model look-a-like walked into the room looking somewhat confused.
WOW! He will definitely not have a problem with the girls here. He has great style too with the white v-neck with navy stripes he is wearing, dark wash jeans , red cardigan and navy converse. This definitely a very elaborate daydream he can’t be real, I mean look at his perfectly messy hair. can you say 'swoon'?
I rested my head on my hand and sighed while staring in his direction.
“Evelyn?” Mr. J asked when I continued staring blankly in the new guy's direction.
“Evelyn?! Didn’t we just talk about the daydreaming?! Jeeze girl, stay on Earth for five minutes!" Mr.James cried jokingly while waving a hand in front of my face.
"Wait, What?” I said just as i snapped out of my daze and came back to reality.
He simply chuckled and gestured for, who I'm assuming to be Aiden, to come over to my desk.
---10 mins earlier---
I made my way down a narrow dark hallway in pursuit of my Uncle's classroom for Homeroom after I received my schedule from the school office.
Is it just me or does it feel like a prison in here? What next bars on the windows?
Uncle Mike has been telling me about this girl Evelyn that is in his English class and homeroom that he wants me to meet . According to him she is: sweet, smart, and funny. He for some reason thinks we'll get along well. Honestly, I’m really hoping he is right because I just left all my friends to move across the country to live with him, my aunt, and their kids.
The decision to come here to New Hampshire wasn't mine. My dad died and my mom lost interest in everything, including me. After his funeral a month ago she handed me a plane ticket and said I was going to live with her brother until further notice. Still numbed from my father's death, I did as I was told without putting up a fight.
I was really close with my dad. He shared his love of music with me at a young and taught me more things than I can count. He was hands down the most influential person in my life and contributed to a lot of others' as the alpha of our werewolf pack. He never backed down from a challenge and always went out of his way to protect others.
