Emma Swan is a sixteen year old girl who has never really fit in. She's been in and out of foster are her whole life, and it wasn't until two months ago that she actually got accepted by a decent family. She has had trouble her whole life making, keeping, and opening up to friends- let alone anyone. She's always been very self reliant because of her lack of trust, and her unwillingness to let down her walls for anyone. Just as she thinks that starting over at a new school, would make things get worse when they had just gotten good, she meets her English teacher- Ms.Mills. She develops this inner war with herself as she gains feelings for her that go way beyond a student teacher relationship. One she believes that someone like Regina could not feel the same, she is damn near perfect, and for two she knows nothing can come of it because she is her teacher after all. Will her crush remain as just that? Will Regina see her as more? And what will happen when she finally lets her walls down?
