A teacher falls in love with her student, but she's torn between two evils; conform to what is right, or do what feels right, despite the possible consequences. Will her student be able to win her heart, or will her conscience and the law keep them apart? More
Alice Evans doesn't like her life. She teaches math to rebellious and obnoxious teenagers, who derive a great sense of pleasure out of making her life a living hell. She hardly has any friends in her new city, and her family doesn't live close by either. One Friday afternoon, just after school, everything seems to go wrong. She had a tough week at work, feels very stressed, and the pouring rain outside is even worse than an April shower. This by itself wouldn't be so terrible, if she didn't also have to buy groceries, and if she hadn't forgotten to bring her umbrella...
She purchases her groceries and takes them outside in a cardboard box to store them in her car, but as she suspected, it doesn't take the rain long to soak her to the bone. In her haste to get back to the car, she trips in a hole on the parking lot. Alice drops the box in her fall, strewing all of her groceries around the parking lot. Because of her fall, she also breaks the heel of her shoe, and tears her skirt. Overall, she feels extremely miserable.
However, when she least expects it, a young man steps in and offers to assist her. He isn't just any man, since Alice recognizes him as John Richards, one of her better students. He offers to help her out and even drives her home, after which he helps her with her groceries. Since Alice's ankle hurts a lot, John offers to help her out the next day as well. He's one of the kindest people she knows, and she accepts his help, agreeing to meet him again the next day.
Alice now faces a new dilemma. She realizes that John is her student, and she recognizes the type of a slippery slope she's on if she accepts his friendship. If by some chance that friendship turns into something more, then she will face the very likely chance of violating one or even multiple laws. John might be eighteen years old, but the state they live in forbids an affair between a teacher and her student, no matter what their age is.
Alice must now face the difficult decision of choosing between two evils; conform to what is right, or do what feels right, despite the possible consequences. Will John be able to win her heart, or will Alice's conscience and the law, keep them from being together?
