There! There she is!

    Kyle looked up at the One’s exclamation. A skinny girl with long, dirty blonde hair pulled into a braid was walking into the room. Kyle took her in, noting her black band tee and her dark indigo jeans. Her makeup was minimal, just enough to naturally emphasize her deep green eyes.

    Her? She looks like she couldn’t hold enough power to blow out a candle!

    Look closer, Gregory. You cannot see her soul like I can, but it is bright enough that surely you can see the aura of power around her.

    Kyle watched Holly Elizabeth out of the corner of his eye as she sat down next to a talkative brunette. He realized that he could see it, the faint shimmer of power. Oh, that is beautiful.

Yes, it is. And it will be mine.

“Oh. My. Gaga. He is hot.” Lauren whispered excitedly, gaping at their new teacher.

Holly couldn’t help but agree. The new teacher was tall, with defined muscles and a handsome face. HIs eyes were like melted chocolate, and completely heart-melting.

He suddenly looked straight at Holly, and she felt her blood run cold.

There was greed in his eyes...and something else, something that sent shivers down Holly’s spine. She looked down at her desk, breaking eye contact. The bell rang, startling her.

The teacher stood, clearing his throat. The classroom was full of sighs and whispers from the girls and jealous glares from the guys.

“Good afternoon.”

Lauren grabbed Holly’s arm, whispering, “Omigod, even his voice is hot!”

“My name is Mr. Penn.” the teacher continued. “Unfortunately, Mrs. Kimley is unable to return to work. I will be your English teacher for the rest of the year.”

Mr. Penn looked at Holly again.

Your soul will be mine, Holly Elizabeth.

Holly shivered and looked away.

She had no way to escape.
