9. Eight

Gregory Kyle pulled up in front of the high school. It was exactly as the One had shown him. This was where he was meant to be.

    Kyle was ready to become a teacher.

    Three days ago, an English teacher by the name of Margaret Kimley had been hosptitalized by an unknown malady, leaving her class with only substitutes.

    The One gave Kyle everything that he would need to become Mr. Penn - Holly Elizabeth’s new English teacher.

    He entered the building with a confident stride, remembering the way to the classroom from his first day in the school, when he applied for the job.

    Numerous students gawked at the new teacher as he passed through their bustling crowds. Some of the girls looked at Kyle with forbidden desire in their eyes. Kyle was sexy, handsome, irresistable. He wondered if the One would let him have some fun while he was playing this role. Some of these high school girls were pretty hot.

    Don’t get distracted, Gregory. You are here on a mission, and it is not one that involves sexual relations - unless that is the only way to bind myself to her, that is. It’s possible that her mind will be too strong for a basic transfer...I may require a more physical technique.

    Kyle could not resist a grin at the thought. The realization of what his master was actually discussing never hit him.

    Get rid of that smile. She would not come near you. No, I may have to move into someone close to her...someone she would trust with that sort of contact. It may not even have to be terribly detailed...it could be as simple as a kiss. Yes, that could work...

    But first, you have your mission. We must learn her. We must learn the life of Holly Elizabeth.
