By the time Thanksgiving rolled around, I had moved past my obsession with Colin. That’s all it had ever been, of course. It wasn’t like we’d known each other long enough or well enough to really fall in love or anything. There was no denying that we had some chemistry and the sex was out of this world, but in the end Colin was really nothing but the rebound guy. I’d done the right thing by leaving—I knew I had. Right up until the moment I saw him when I went out to dinner with my family.
Our eyes met, and every lie I’d told myself over the last four months stood revealed as the self-deceiving nonsense that it was.
Was she right to leave? Did it even matter? She believed it enough to walk away, and her mind was made up—that much was obvious from her letter. While I’d talked her down once, I didn’t think it was going to happen this time. Hell, I knew she was right. I could see it from the other side, too. I’d just been so selfish from wanting her so badly that I’d ignored it.
None of that was going to stop me from getting her back, though, and if she had found someone else I was going to take her away from him.
This is part three of a four part serial with cliffhanger endings. You can now get all four installments in a single novelized edition - Obsessed: A New Adult Romance.
But I was the one who was going to get him.
I wasn’t supposed to want her. I didn’t want to want her. I was her teacher, she was my student, and the whole situation was a disaster in the making. I should have gone to someone for help. I should have had her transferred to another class. I should have kept my temper and libido firmly in check when she was in the room. But I didn’t do any of those things. Maybe it was because forbidden fruit really is the sweetest, or maybe it was just because I wasn’t done self-destructing yet. Either way, I did nothing to stop it.
And then it was too late.
This is the first installment of a four part serial. If you don't like serials I will be releasing all four parts as a novel when they are complete.
