"I'm so sorry Scar. I'm glad you told me." He said kissing the top of my head.

I pushed away from him, "Why do you care so much about me?" He's a teacher, of course, they need to care but for some reason deep down in my heart, I want it to be a different reason.

"Because I know I can treat you better." He blurted out.

Looks like I'm not the only one feeling brave.

"Mr-Adam what are you saying?" I asked my heart beating faster.

"Exactly what I said. I know this is the worst timing and that you're my student but I honestly don't care. I really like you, Scarlett." He said gently placing his hand on my cheek like he did in the classroom. I couldn't speak, his words stun me.

"Adam?" I whispered breathlessly.

"Be with me, Scarlett Rose."

Scarlett Rose sees nothing wrong with her wonderful (abusive) boyfriend Ray Monroe but Mr Watson the new Math teacher can't stand the


10. Romantic Watson

"What are you doing babygirl?" Adam asked me over the phone.

"Nothing just bored." I blew the strain of hair out of my face laying on my stomach on the bed in the guest bedroom.

"Come over."

I perked up at his words, "Really? Aren't you worried?"

"I trust Dawn and believe she'll find something. So what do you say?" He asked sounding hopeful.

"Sure let me get ready!" We said our goodbyes handing up.

I quickly showered and changed into a pair of jeans and short sleeve shirt I was excited to wear it it's been so long since I wore one.

"Where you off to?" Dawn asked walking in the guest room.

"Oh! You're home. I'm going to Adam's is that okay?" I asked as she flopped down on the bed.

"Yeah, that's fine." She mumbled into the bed.

"You okay?" I asked sitting beside her rubbing her back.

"Just tired. Don't worry about me." She brought her head up giving me a sad smiled. Her eyes were a little red from crying. I knew basically everything about my best friend but once I asked about her Mom she shuts down closing me out. I get it because I do the same thing when it came to talking about Ray.

"Where did you go when you dropped me off?" After school, she dropped me off with no explanation.

"I had to do something." She mumbled.

I sigh, "You know you can talk to me right?"

"Yes, darling I know. Just don't worry your pretty little head about it. Now go see your man." She ruffled my hair laying back down.

I didn't bother her about it. I stood placing on my shoes and a jacket. Dawn's aunt didn't live far from Adam which I'm grateful for.

I was almost there when I realized there was a car following me. The closer I came to Adam's street the more creeped out I became. The car pulled into the other lane next to me the fact there were no other cars in sight made me worry.

I looked at the car as the driver rolled down their window.

"Where you off to?" Shelly asked flipping her blonde hair.

I ignored her looking straight ahead. Did their deal include her stalking me? She might be getting more proof.

"C'mon Scarlett I know you're going to see him."

I rolled my eyes, "I'm walking to the store, you idiot."

"Now, now I wouldn't be so snobby towards me or I'll just have to accidentally post a photo on Facebook." Her threat made me stop in place. She stopped the car giving me an evil smile, knowing she's got me.

"You don't have anything." I glared at her.

She pulled out her phone going to her photos showing me a picture of me (I didn't realize my clothes were torn that badly) getting into Adam's truck at the gas station.

"I was there. I followed you guys to his apartment."

Then why only take one picture?

"You're using Ray aren't you?"

She gasps, "That's such an awful thing to say," She laughed evilly, "but so true. We all have a game to play you just don't happen to be in mine."

I couldn't have been more confused, "Didn't-"

"Just go along with this, okay?"

I nodded confused by her sudden change of moods.

"Just to let you know I'm doing this for me, not you." Ah, there's the Shelly we all know and hate. Shelly drove off getting back in the right lane.

I continued my walk to Adam's thinking over everything. What is Shelly playing at? Is she trying to switch tactics to get me to trust her? I could scream out in frustration.

I double checked my surroundings making sure no one else was following me.

I made it to his apartment I kneeled in front of Adam's truck watching a few cars pass by. Once the street was empty I stood hurrying inside and up the stairs to his door.

I raised my hand to knock but the door open.

Upon seeing me Adam smiled, "Hey you I was beginning to worry."

I smiled, "Well Shelly stopped me, she showed me the picture she has." I said walking in Adam closed the door behind me.

"What's it of?" He asked helping me take off my jacket placing it on the back of the couch.

"Me getting into your truck at the gas station but she followed us to your apartment. I thought it was weird how she didn't take any other pictures."

"That is weird," Adam said gently grabbing my hand leading me to the kitchen.

"And she was all like 'we all have a game to play you just don't happen to be mine' I couldn't be more con-" I stopped myself looking at the kitchen table Adam made dinner and to top it off there was two lit candles, one glass filled with red wine and one glass of water.

"Maybe she has her own agenda. I think Dawn should still get something on her," Adam realized I was staring at the table, "Oh! Right I made dinner and I would have put out some wine for you but you're not of age." He poked my nose.

I giggled shoving him. "I suppose we better follow some rules, right Mr Watson?"

He laughed pulling out a chair for me I sat down and he sat down beside me.

"But thank you, it's very romantic."

"You're welcome." He kissed my cheek, I melted.

We both started eating and I continued telling him about what Shelly said.

"But I think you're right, she might have her own agenda." I nodded to myself coming to a conclusion.

"Good." He kissed my forehead.

We ate the rest of our food then went into the living room watching tv.

I wrapped my arm's around Adam's arm snuggling up to him. He smiled at me.

"What?" I asked a little self conscience.

"Nothing. You're just too cute."

I playfully rolled my eyes.

"You never did give me an answer."

I looked down blushing a little, "I'm still thinking." 

He placed a hand on my thigh, "I understand, I was just wondering."

I smiled leaning up to kiss him but knock at the door stopped me.
