Alex Teal, is an eleventh grader and the biggest tomboy in her school. She's got her whole life ahead of her. She's popular, she has the boyfriend she has always wanted. Then the new teacher comes a long. The immediately feel a connection, but Alex fears that she might lose her "one true love" who she believes is her boyfriend Ned.
Ford is a Alex's nineteen year old teacher, who is full of secrets. He loves Alex but she doesn't trust him. He's afraid to expose his secrets in fear of losing the girl he loves and the job....well, he doesn't really care about his job.
"Don't you talk to me," I pointed at Ford backing away from him," Don't you touch me."
The more I backed away, the closer he got to me.
"Ford, don't you dear-," my back hit the wall.
He slowly pressed his body up against mine and slid his finger down my cheek. His minty breath hit my nose,"You've kept me waiting for too long, Alex."
He said Alex, not Alexis. This wasn't a dream.
