Tantalizing Tuesday Teaser: Extra Tuition part 3
For a few seconds I just sat there, silently watching, as Miss Harrison placed one of her hands on her desk and lowered her head. Eventually though, and with the only sounds in the room our breathing, I slowly pushed my seat back. As I did the silence in the room was shattered as the chair's legs scraped across the floor, deafeningly, causing Miss Harrison to spin round and glare at me.
“I thought I told you to get the fuck out of here,” she screamed, and as she did I saw a lone tear seep from the corner of her right eye and begin running slowly down her cheek.
“Are you okay, Miss?” I asked softly, as I rose from my seat and moved slowly toward her.
“Please, Damon, just go, I'll be fine.” she whispered, almost inaudibly.
“You don't look fine, Miss,” I replied, as I watched the lone tear trickle down, over her cheek.
Unsure what made me do it I reached forward and, gently, wiped the tear from her cheek. As I did Miss Harrison lifted her hand and placed it on top of mine, before lightly kissing the back of my hand.
