Leia tried to concentrate but all she could think about was the evening ahead. She had decided she would lose her virginity. She wanted it to be as perfect as possible. She wasn’t nervous at all. She knew she was in good hands. She kept looking at Richard. She was amazed how he could shut everything out. If he only knew what she had decided. Instead of listening she thought about what to wear. The whole time he didn’t look at her even if she kept staring at him. She didn’t take any notes and yet he didn’t look at her. When the class was finally over, she and Nadia took their time. They had decided Nadia would wait outside the classroom to keep a lookout. Richard was standing by his desk collecting his things. There were still other students left in the classroom. They kept talking to each other. Leia wished they would leave already. She had packed her things and so had Nadia. The girls talked to each other. When the other students finally left, the girls also pretended to leave.
“Leia, could you stay for a minute. It’s about your assignment” Richard looked up
She stopped and waited for the others to leave, including Nadia who closed the door behind her.
“What assignment is that?” Leia smiled
“Actually it’s my assignment” He gets closer to her “If ‘we’ll see’ is a ‘yes’”
“What does the assignment contain?” She looked in his eyes and dropped her bag on the floor
“I guess that’s a yes then” He touched her hair “My assignment is to please you the best I can”
“I’m warning you. Just because I’ve never had a cock inside me, doesn’t mean I don’t know what I like” She wrapped her arms around his neck
“I should punish you for language like that” He smiled
“What are you gonna do? Make me wait even longer for yours?”
“Oh Leia you really know how to talk” He groaned and kissed her lips
She ran her fingers through his hair. Their kisses got more passionate. She made him walk backwards until they reached the front desk. He leaned on the edge of it while she sat on his lap facing him. He moved his hands across her back and down to her behind. There was a knock on the door but they were so into each other they didn’t hear it.
Outside Nadia saw the janitor approaching the classroom. She cleared her throat.
“Oh there’s still someone here” He said when he got there
“My friend is doing a test” She raised her voice so they would hear inside the classroom
The janitor looked puzzled at her.
“I’ll come back later” He said and walked pass
Nadia knocked again when he was gone.
“Did you hear that?” Richard broke the kiss
“Mm” She murmured and kept kissing
He stopped responding and looked at his wrist watch.
“Let’s continue elsewhere” He pushed her away gently
Disappointed she got off him. She noticed the bulge through his pants.
“Are you sure you can wait that long?” She smiled and touched him there
“Please don’t that” He grunted and took her hand away
Looking at him in that state, she knew she’s made the right choice. Their age difference made it even better. It didn’t matter now what she would wear. They planned what to do next. She took her bag from the floor and opened the classroom door without looking back.
“Took you long enough. The janitor was just here” Nadia said when Leia got out
“Sorry about that” Leia smiled “Change of plan. Let’s go to this address”
Nadia took the note she gave her. She took her bag from the floor and they leave the building. They got into their car and drove to the road. Leia kept smiling while looking out of the window. After driving a while, Nadia looked her way.
“Are you nervous?”
“Not at all” Leia smiled at her
“Do you need anything?”
“No I don’t think so” She shook her head
“You know what I mean”
“Protection. I got that covered”
“Good. Never have sex without it”
“Of course” Leia looked out of the window again
Soon they arrived to a suburban area. There were houses every 50 yards apart and every one was in a different color. They got to a bungalow with brown bricks. It had a driveway and in front of the house a grass lawn. Nadia parked the car on the street.
“Here we are” She said and stopped the engine
“It’s now or never”
“Have fun. Call me later so I can pick you up”
“No need. I can manage” Leia smiled
“OK. Don’t be late for work”
Leia took her bag and stepped out, closing the door behind. Nadia drove away. Leia looked up to the house while walking on the lawn. She sat on the stairs to wait. It was getting darker so the street lights went on. Richard promised he would be there in 20 minutes but it was already past that. She was about to call when he drove to the driveway.
“Sorry you had to wait but I was held up” He said when he stepped out of the car
He was there now and that was all that mattered.
On Thursday both Leia and Nadia went to class. They had made a plan. They would test his integrity. Nadia had put on her a mini-skirt and a tight blouse that showed her figure. Leia were just in a plain T-shirt and jeans with sneakers. They arrive to the classroom. They sit down on the front row. Not everyone had arrived yet. Not even the teacher. They had time to go through the plan. They talk quietly so no one would hear them. Other students were arriving and so did he. He laid his folder on his desk as usual and greeted the class. He gave Leia a smile but she didn’t give one back. The class started. The subject was genders. That was a subject that suited so well. While the class was going on, Nadia kept flirting with Richard. Once in a while he noticed but he didn’t lose concentration. Leia looked amused at her. When there’s a 10 minute break, he leaves the classroom. Nadia followed him. He was going to the men’s room. She waited outside. There were other students standing in the hall. In a few minutes, he came out. She walks behind him so he didn’t see her. He was on his way back to the classroom.
“Richard” Nadia said and he turned around
Nervously he looks around.
“Please don’t call me that outside the classroom”
“I’m sorry. Am I embarrassing you?” She said and smiled
“Did you want to say something?”
“Yeah” She replied and touched his arm while looking at him
A few students walked by and looked at them. He glimpsed at them which made him even more nervous.
“We should go back to the classroom” He said and tried to walk pass her but she got in front of him
“I heard you tried to have sex with Leia”
“What are you talking about?” He looked at her puzzled
“If I was her I would have done it in a heartbeat. You’re really are hot for a teacher. I’m sure you’re great at it” She said and ran her fingers across his chest
“Please don’t do that” He said and took her hand away
“If you dare to kiss her in the classroom with the door open, this should be easy”
“That’s different. Now there are other people here”
“I thought you liked an audience” She winked at him
He looked at the time on his watch.
“I really don’t have time for this” He said and walked pass her
“The reason she didn’t want to have sex, is because she’s still a virgin. And I think you want someone with more experience” She whispered to him
He stopped and looked at her.
“She is?” He said surprised
“Don’t tell her it was I that spilled the beans”
He just gave her one look and got back to the classroom. Nadia smiled and followed. Leia was writing in her notebook and looked up when they got inside. Richard looked at her and gave her a smile. Nadia sat down beside her.
“How did it go?” Leia whispered to her
“Did he give you a smile?”
“Then very well. But it’s not over yet. Watch this”
The class continued. In the middle of Richard’s sentence, Nadia raised her hand.
“Why do some men think they can control women the way they want? Men have always been the hunter but that’s boring already. Why can’t women be the one’s that make the first move without being called easy? It’s actually the men that are easy. Not the other way around”
He stayed silent a while.
“First, thank you for interrupting me. Some women let them. They make themselves a target. The attitudes are changing though. Women have become stronger. It’s been proved a lot of times. Men have learned that women do have a mind of their own”
“But yet when women dates a lot of men, they’re still called easy. If a man dates different women, it’s being praised. Why is that?”
“I don’t have an answer to that to be honest. Personally I think people who call women easy, only have low self-esteem”
Nadia didn’t have anything else to say so Richard continued where he left off.
“Damn, I thought I got him there” Nadia whispered to Leia
When the evening was over and the others had gone, the girls were the only left. They were packing their things when Richard approached them.
“Nice questions there. Seemed personal” He sarcastically said to Nadia
“It wasn’t. Honestly” Was her reply
“OK, fair enough. Leia, could I talk to you in private?” He says to her
“No you can say it here”
“Alright. Are you still mad at me?”
“No I’m over that”
“Good” He said and smiled “I don’t know if I should really do this. But do you have something to do tonight?”
“Not really. Why?”
“Since we can’t meet in public, I thought maybe we could meet at my place. I promise I won’t try anything”
Leia looked at Nadia. She looked back with a proved look.
“No thank you” Leia replied and lifted her bag on her shoulder
“Give me your mobile”
“What for?” She said looking at him
“I write my number so you can call me”
“No bad idea” She said and closed her bag
“It just is. Nadia, shall we go?” She said and walked to the classroom door
“Sorry” Nadia said to him before following her out
The girls walked down the hall.
“What are you doing? He was offering his number” Nadia said while they walked out of the building
They walked to the parking lot where their car was parked.
“Make him suffer. That’s the point in this game. Make him crawl. He can get my number from my student file. He must realize it himself. If he really wants me, he shouldn’t get the easy way out”
“Play hard to get. That’s cheeky. I just thought I would embarrass him but it wasn’t easy”
“Exactly. This is gonna be fun” Leia said and smiled
They got into the car a drove home. Leia was really playing a risky game. She would soon find out it wouldn’t be as easy as she thought.
On Thursday the girls arrived to school. Leia usually wore less revealing clothes but this time they were tighter. She still wore jeans but they were tight-fit that revealed her figure. On her upper body she had a tight gray v- neck t-shirt and a blue jeans jacket. She had cut her hair so it reached above her shoulders. Her hair was untied. She was never this revealing but she just wanted to impress the teacher. She promised herself she would concentrate this time. She and Nadia had talked about the first class at work.
“I didn’t mean you should fall for him. I just pointed out how handsome he was” Nadia had told her
“I didn’t expect it either but I couldn’t help it”
“You should stop falling for men you know you can’t have. Just saying”
“Yes I know. But I do try” Was Leia’s reply
Here there were in school, waiting. Maybe he was late. Other students had become more talkative so there were more noise than usual. Leia still had her jacket on. When she sees Richard get into the classroom, she stands up to take it off. She turns around and take it seductively off, showing her figure. Before he greets, he takes a glimpse at her, forgetting where he was. She sits down and bends down a little, showing her bosom. Even if she didn’t look his way, she knew he was looking at her. The class gets quiet when he apologies for being late.
“OK, let’s start”
Leia tried to listen what he was saying but like the last time, she kept concentrating on his appearance. This time he was dressed more sophisticated. A dark suit without a tie. Under it he had a light-colored shirt with the first two buttons undone. Most of the time he stood behind his desk. After an hour, they had a 10 minute break. A few students went outside to get some fresh air. Nadia was writing in her notebook. Leia kept looking at Richard who was sitting by his desk writing something on a paper. He glanced up for a moment and looked at her. She had the tip of her pencil in her mouth and pretended to suck it. He quickly stood up and left the classroom. Without saying anything to Nadia, she followed him to see where he went. There were other students in the hall from other courses, talking to each other. She saw him going to the men’s room. She looked around to see no one was close by. She opened the door slowly and looked inside from the doorpost. He was splashing water on his face and then looking himself in the mirror while drying with a paper towel. She waited outside. In a second the door opened. He didn’t see her.
“Is it hot in the classroom?” She asked and startled he turned around
“Gee Leia, never sneak behind me like that” He nervously said
“I’m sorry Richard” She said and smiled
“Please don’t do that. I’m your teacher for crying out loud”
“I’m sorry, teacher” She flirted
She didn’t know why she said it like that. This wasn’t her. Why was this man giving her these thoughts? Students were getting inside their classrooms.
“We should go back” And he started to walk towards their classroom
All of the students were already waiting inside. Leia was the last entering. Nadia looked at her.
“Where did you go?” She whispered when she sat down
“Just took a walk” Was her reply
“You talked to him”
“OK, let’s continue. Let’s talk about human behavior. Could anyone give examples of what it means?” He asked, looking over the class
A few hands came up. He wrote the suggestions on the chalkboard. Leia was usually quiet during class but now she picked up the courage. She raised her hand and waited for her turn. He saw it but still he didn’t let her speak. As soon as one of the students was finished, she opened her mouth.
“Does human behavior also involve ignoring other people?”
She noticed he didn’t want to reply. He looked at her for a while.
“That could be one kind of behavior. But not only humans do”
“Why do people do that? Are they afraid to get rejected or a fear of commitment?”
“It can be anything”
He was clearly embarrassed.
“Why can’t humans just be honest? We can talk, unlike animals. If we like someone, why not say it out loud? It shouldn’t be so difficult”
“I agree but sometimes we just don’t want to hurt somebody’s feelings”
Leia was really getting upset. It had become one on one conversation. She didn’t like the way he was making up excuses.
“That’s better than nothing”
He didn’t want to agree or disagree. A few more students hands were up. There wasn’t much time left. The classes were 3 hours long. They get an assignment for next time and the then first part of the course is over. The classroom emptied quite fast. Nadia packed her things while Leia put her jacket on. She was a little upset. She kept looking at Richard who was arranging his folder.
“Not bad for an introvert” Nadia whispered to her “I have never seen this side of you”
Leia was so in her thoughts she didn’t hear her. She was about to change her mind about him. She had been fooled by his good looks. How could she be so stupid? He was just a typical man.
“Shall we go?” Nadia asked and she wakes up from her thoughts
“Sure” She said and took her bag
She didn’t look at him and was about to leave the room.
“Leia, can I talk to you for a minute?” Richard said and they stopped by the door
“I have to go” And is about to
“It won’t take long” He said and stood up
“I wait in the car” Nadia said, after Leia nods to her and then she leaves
“Is everything alright?”
“You seem upset. Is it something I said?”
“No, not at all” She smiled a little
“I’m just asking because earlier you seemed much happier and then not so much during class”
Was he trying to say sorry for not giving her a proper answer? He sure was sweet but she wouldn’t fall for that.
“Thank you for your concern but I’m fine. I have to go” She said and was about to leave
“Leia” He said and paused
She waited for his reply but he just looked at her.
“I- I see you next week” He said and smiled
Without saying anything, she left. She had a feeling he was about to say something else. She gets to the parking lot where Nadia was waiting in the car. They drive home.
