"Alek, how nice of you to join us," Mr. Bradford said when Alek snuck into the classroom. "Could you see me after school, please?"
This is a terrible idea, Mr. Bradford thought to himself, when Alek opened the door to the classroom. Just tell him to leave, say that it doesn't matter. "Have a seat," he said. Oh, wow, good job, his conscience sniped sarcastically.
"Okay, Alek. Uh..." He trailed off and sighed audibly. "You just need to understand that your actions have consequences. And before you say it again, I know, she started it, whatever, but like... You need to say no in situations like that." He avoided Alek's gaze and scratched the back of his head awkwardly.
"I get that you're a teenage boy and you have needs or whatever," Oh my God, he thought to himself, "But you seriously could've cost Lily her job. You can do whatever the duck you want outside of school, because that's none of my business. But as soon as you start doing ship like that on campus, it becomes my business. And that's weird and awkward but you're my student and you're my responsibility. And I totally could tell the principal and you could be expelled and Lily could get fired, but I'm not gonna do that. But if the principal finds out that I knew about ... that, and I didn't say something, I could lose my job too. So just don't be a pick and do that ship in your own time. And ... yeah."
Nobody needs a boyfriend/girlfriend like Huge pointed out. It is better to wait and form a friendship with somebody before you immediately try and ask somebody out. That way you are more likely to get a yes. Its also not so bad being single. Being single doesn't mean you aren't lovable, it means that the right person hasn't come along yet.
Alek caught sight of himself in the mirror before sliding into the cubicle, a bright red blush had spread right across his face. Stupid Bradford, he thought as the cubicle door shut behind him.
As he walked into the class the blonde kept his face focused on the ground, moving straight to his desk and not saying anything. It hadn't taken nearly enough time to 'finish' and go back to the Nurses office to collect his things. Lily was pretty peeved, which he thought was stupid since she hadn't locked the door and she had stated it.
