Mr Blackwell:Teacher Student Romance

By: S K Quinn

So I do.

I look into Sophia’s eyes the whole time. And I’ve never seen anything more beautiful.

Our arms and legs wrap around each other and for the first time in my life I am free.

Why was I so afraid?

I have no idea.

We are made for one another.

‘I need to know,’ I say. ‘Are we going to do this? Or am I going to have to get over you?’

My heart pounds as I wait for her answer.

‘Yes,’ she says. ‘We’re going to do this.’

‘You’re sure?’ I say, my heart glowing.


‘I love you.’

‘I love you, too.’

‘In the morning then,’ I tell her. ‘We’ll leave the college together. Hand in hand.’


The sun is a white line now, glimmering over London.

In her sleep, Sophia gives a little sigh.

I am in love. I almost want to laugh out loud. I am in love with a girl I should never have had.

I don’t know what today will bring. But we belong together. And nothing will take her from me.

I slide under the bedclothes, still watching Sophia. I don’t want to fall asleep. I want to watch her. Forever.

I lean so our foreheads touch.

Sophia’s eyelids flicker.

‘Sophia?’ I whisper.

She murmurs something in her sleep.

I close my eyes. ‘I love you too.’
