I was studying in science class when he came up to me. He slowly sat down next to me and asked me for help with a few questions from the textbook. "I need to hear someone explain it to me." He was begging now, but I knew that he understood the material. "You tell me. You know the answers, now teach them to me." I was trying to get him to put his thoughts into words and sort them out in a way that he could remember. And then he looked at me with his soft eyes and said, "But I want you to help me with it." As soon as the words slipped out of his mouth, his charming smile slipped onto his face. His face was close to mine now and I could hear his soft breathing next to me. I felt him move a little closer, as if to whisper in my ear, when the bell rang. We both stood up, snatched up our binders, and walked into the hallway. Whatever magic that had existed was gone. As he walked away from me, he looked into my eyes for just a moment. A moment that lasted forever and ended too soon. While I walked towards my locker, one thought pounded through my head, "You know he's dangerous. Don't get too close."
