SCHOOL WAS STUPID, POINTLESS, AND A WASTE OF TIME.
At least that's what Monica thought of it. She hated rising at the crack of dawn just to sit in stuffy classrooms and learn stupid shit that she'll never use in the real world. Most days, she would also have to sit in a cold basement after school because she'd pissed off a couple teachers. She also disliked having to sit near the school's womanizer, Raul.
Raul was a sweet boy with a heart of gold and a dazzling smile. He found a way to use these features to his advantage, charming most of the girls in his grade. It wasn't hard: he'd smile and they'd swoon. Pretty cut and dry. He found unlikely rivalry in the likes of Monica, who vowed to never fall at his feet. She was resistant to his heartbreaker ways, which only made him like her more. He was still respectful of her repulsion, only interacting with her in a friendly manner. Not that it mattered.
When Mr Dulaine takes over detention for the students, he decides to teach them ballroom dancing, which goes over as well as you'd expect with a bunch of troublemaking young adults. However, over the weeks, he manages to get them to open up and treat each other with respect. With a significant improvement in the attitudes of his students, he opts to enter them into a dance competition. Raul and Monica are ultimately paired to perform a salsa, which gets their hearts racing every time they're pressed up against each other.
Monica will learn that she won't find another man like Raul.
