Chapter 6: Let’s play doctor ;)

“I said take your shirt off, Avery. I need to see your shoulder.” Mr. Taisley said firmly, rifling through one of the medicine cabinets in the room.

I went to pull off my shirt, wincing as the motion caused my shoulder to sear in pain. I let out a pained moan and dropped my shirt. I couldn’t do it. Mr. Taisley turned around, realizing my dilemma. He looked sympathetic, a major change from five minutes ago when he looked like he wanted to roast me on a spit.

“Come here.” He said, setting down the bandages he was holding. I obeyed and stepped closer to him.

“Arms up.” He said simply. I lifted up my arms, biting my lip and trying not to groan at the pain that it inflicted. He carefully pulled my shirt over my head, and I tried not to let my imagination wander.

Mr. Taisley’s expression was unreadable as he assessed my damaged shoulder, stopping to toss my shirt on the chair and pick up the bandages. There was already a bruise forming and a cut from where I was shoved into the locker.

I felt his breath on my neck as he stood behind me, cleaning the cut with God knows what. Damn it! It stung like a bitch! I bit my lip, forcing myself to not groan in pain.

“Not much I can do for the bruise. Just don’t mess with it.” He said, turning me to face him. I chanced a look at his face and regretted it immediately. His eyebrows were scrunched together and his expression was hard. His jaw flexed which I assumed was a sign of anger. Fantastic.

“Give me your hand.” Mr. Taisley said, sighing. What was that sigh for? He was gently nibbling on his lip, as he waited for me to obey, and I found myself following the motion with my eyes. He raised his eyebrows when he caught me staring. Shit! I did not want to be in this situation right now. Mr. Taisley was making me all hot and bothered! Curse him!

He sighed impatiently, and I felt his hand close around my wrist, turning it so my palm was facing up. He stared for a second, evaluating the cut from where I squeezed the piece of glass. There was a decent sized gash, but it wasn’t too deep. He touched it.

MOTHER OF GOD, OUCH!!” I screamed in pain, glaring at him when he gave me a weird look. I swore his lip twitched slightly, but in a second his expression had again become impassive.

“Would you like to tell me what happened?” He asked sternly, cleaning the wound with a cotton ball. He lifted his gaze to mine, his ice blue eyes studying me questioningly. I fidgeted against his stare, biting my lip desperately.

“Didn’t we already have this conversation?” I asked, annoyed.

I gasped when his grip on my wrist tightened. I found myself being backed into a chair and pushed down into it.

“I meant the mirror. How did the mirror get broken?” Mr. Taisley asked, forcefully wrapping a long band aid around my hand. I winced against his ungentle touch, thanking God he had his attention focused on my hand. I didn’t think I could handle another of his righteous anger glares.

“Yeah… It looked like that when I walked in.” I lied, trying to look convincing. His face snapped up at that comment, pausing what he was doing. He searched my gaze, and I shifted uncomfortably in my seat.

“Liar.” He stated, flipping over my hand to expose my bloody knuckles. Shit. I suck at lying.

“Yeah you do.” He said matter-of-factly. My mouth dropped open in horror when I realized that I had whispered that out loud. He shook his head, pouring disinfectant on a new piece of cotton.

After quickly wiping up my knuckles, Mr. Taisley grabbed my other arm, staring at my wrist where the cut was clearly visible. An angry red color had formed around the gash. It looked awful.

“Avery you do realize that I have to tell the principle about this, right?” He said suddenly. “And he will probably tell your parents.” He added, reluctantly. My eyes snapped up to his, and I jerked my wrist out of his hand, quickly jumping out of the chair.

“You can’t!” I yelled in horror. Mr. Taisley stepped back in surprise and I stepped closer, suddenly angry again. There was no way my parents could find out! I’d be murdered. And I was still a virgin! I couldn’t die a virgin!

“Look, I appreciate what you did okay? But no one asked you to barge in and no one asked you to play doctor! It’s my parents. I think I have the right to decide what they do know, and what they don’t know. Just give me detention or something. PLEASE!” I pleaded desperately. I hadn’t realized I had been walking forward, slowly backing Mr. Taisley into the wall, until I felt his hand close around my uninjured shoulder as he held me still.

I tried to control my panicked heartbeats, and I realized that he didn’t looked shocked at all by my outburst. His attractive features remained calm and collected, probably to avoid a repeat of the verbal war we had a few minutes ago..

Mr. Taisley took a moment to think over my words, running a hand through his tousled black hair. His ice blue eyes blinked in uncertainty, and I hoped this meant he might not tell the principle. He finally shook his head, meeting my gaze.

“It’s my obligation as a teacher, Avery. I’m sorry, but I-” I cut him off in the middle of his sentence.

“No you don’t understand! Look, the last time this happened.. The last time I.. cut myself… it was a few years ago. It was a lot worse than this.” I said holding out my wrist to show him the one cut.

“My parents found out and I’d never seen them so upset-” I paused and took a deep breath, checking Mr. Taisley’s reaction to my interruption.

He was silent. His breathing was calm and he was watching me steadily, waiting for me to continue. I squeezed my eyes shut, reliving the scene in my head.

“They asked me why I had done it. I totally freaked out. I was so confused and so angry at myself. I wanted their approval.. I needed to know it was going to be okay. So I told them I was confused.” I stopped, looking up to meet Mr. Taisley’s concerned gaze. He nodded for me to continue, his hand still resting on my bare shoulder.

“They asked me why I was confused and I didn’t tell them right away. I decided that night, that I was going to tell them that I was.... gay.” I admitted. My heart pounded against my chest at my confession, and I noticed Mr. Taisley’s eyebrows had raised slightly at that statement. I ignored it, continuing.

“I cleaned myself up, and later that night I went down to my parents room to tell them. The door was partially open and I decided to peek in first. There were beer bottles… everywhere. My parents were arguing and I could tell that my dad was drunk..” I paused when I felt Mr. Taisley’s thumb stroke my shoulder comfortingly. I shut my eyes.

“They were arguing about me.. Trying to figure out why I did it. My dad was pacing the room, saying things like ‘Maybe he’s having friend problems’ or ‘Maybe he’s confused about a girl he likes.’ And then my mother said.. ‘Jack, he’s never had a girl friend…’” I retold, laughing dryly at the memory. I sighed, remembering the way my mother had said it.. As if she had come to a realization about something.. about me.. I swallowed loudly before continuing.

“There was complete silence and then my mother stated that maybe I was gay. She didn’t even get to finish her sentence before I heard bottles crashing and my father yelling at her to never say that again. I didn’t see much through the door but I heard a loud slap followed by my mother’s gasp. He had hit her.” I said, squeezing my eyes shut.

I felt Mr. Taisley’s grip on my shoulder tighten and I looked up to meet his eyes. He looked upset, and opened his mouth to say something, but I cut him off. I had already said too much. I couldn’t stop now.

“I ran up to my room before they could find out I was there, and the next morning they pretended like nothing had happened. I told them this huge lie about a girl I liked and they looked so relieved..” I said anxiously. I looked up at Mr. Taisley in desperation.

“So you see? They can’t know. They can’t ever know! He’d hurt her! He’d..” My voice finally faded away as I felt a tear slip past my eye.

I had never confessed that to anyone. I hadn’t even told Jamie the whole story. My lips were parted in shock, and I almost jumped when a hand brushed away the tear that was falling down my face.

I grabbed his hand before he had time to pull it away, and I looked up at him. His gorgeous eyes held a mixture of pity and shock at my sudden touch. He let his hand drop from my face, but I didn’t let go of his hand.

Mr. Taisley looked down at our hands, before trailing his gaze up my bare torso and to my desperate eyes. Yeah, I saw that.

“Avery.” He started to pull his hand away, but I gripped it tighter, using the opportunity to tug him closer. Before he had time to protest, I had grabbed the back of his neck, pulling his face closer to mine. And in a flurry of heat and desperation.. and without thinking about it first.. I slammed my lips onto his.

A familiar scene flashed through my head.. that first night in Mr. Taisley’s bedroom when I had kissed him. It had felt mesmerizing then.. to have my lips attached to the most gorgeous man I’d ever seen. And it felt just as spectacular now.

But it was different now… He was awake this time. And this time, I swore I could feel his lips moving too... kissing me back.

But just as quickly as that realization crossed my mind, it vanished when his lips suddenly broke away.

I felt a hand grip my hair and pull my face away so he could look at me. Ice blue eyes clouded with surprise and confusion met mine. He searched my gaze, his gorgeous lips parting slightly in shock as he tried to control his unsteady breathing.

In an instant, Mr. Taisley was backing away, not stopping until he was a half a room away from me.

His face looked so shocked it could have come straight from a horror movie scene.. You know, the part where the psychopath serial killer jumps out from behind the bushes, swinging his menacing axe at the poor mortified victim. Yeah.. Mr. Taisley was the face of the victim… right before they were butchered.

As for me, I was looking extremely attractive with my emerald eyes bulging out of their sockets, and my mouth gaping open like a fish. I was completely shocked at what I had just done. I just threw myself at a teacher! If I hadn’t been leaning against the door, I would have collapsed from my suddenly useless jelly-like legs.

We stared at each other from across the room, different emotions clearly running through his eyes. I tried not to read too hard into them, for fear I'd see something I really didn't want to... like regret or disgust.

So I kept staring at his gorgeously flushed face. His blue eyes kept blinking, as if he expected to wake up from a dream. I unconsciously touched my fingers to my tingling lips, not taking my eyes away from his.

We both jumped when a loud knock echoed through the room. Before I could blink, my tee shirt was being thrown in my face followed by a “Put it on!” as Mr. Taisley scrambled to dispose of the bloody cotton balls.

“Open the door Avery.” Mr. Taisley ordered, not looking up as he put away the first aid kit supplies. I obeyed without a word, not trusting myself enough to talk clearly after what just happened. I quickly threw my tee shirt over my head as I reached to open the door.

“Hide your wrist.” Mr. Taisley quickly added as I opened it.

I was met with balding hair, an overweight physique, an unattractive mole on the right side of an acne scarred face.. and an intimidating stare as I was eyed up and down suspiciously. Yep I could recognize that man anywhere. It was the priniciple, Mr. Mordick. Yes, that really was his last name..

“Avery.” Mr. Mordick addressed me with a nod, and then averted his buggy eyes to Mr. Taisley who had closed the medicine cabinet and was now walking toward us.

“Afternoon, Jace.” The principle said curtly, continuing. “A few students informed me of the damaged mirror in the restroom and said you both were seen leaving from there. What happened?” He asked, his gaze flickering to my bandaged hand that was resting on the door knob.

I stiffened when I felt Mr. Taisley come up behind me, putting his hand on my injured shoulder. I bit my lip, trying to not utter a sound. I could tell he realized what he had done, because he softened his grip immediately and casually stroked his thumb over my shoulder as an apology.

For a moment I panicked at the principle‘s question. Was Mr. Taisley going to tell him what I did to myself? No, he wouldn’t have told me to hide my wrist.. Right? My heart thudded in panic as I waited for Mr. Taisley to reply.

“Oh that’s my fault.” He quickly lied. “I think a few boys were messing around earlier and throwing things. I walked in and saw what happened. I asked Avery to help me clean up and he accidentally cut his hand.” Mr. Taisley said smoothly, and I let out a breath of relief at his lie.

“We just finished bandaging him up.” He finished lightly, patting my shoulder.

I couldn’t tell whether or not Mr. Mordick bought the lie or not, but after a few seconds, he nodded.

“You okay Avery?” The principle asked. I nodded quickly.

"Yeah thanks. I'm fine." I reasurred him, faking a smile.

“Thanks for helping clean up, but don’t worry about it. I’ll have the janitor get it. Did you happen to see who broke the mirror?” Mr. Mordick asked me, one of his eyes twitching slightly. I wondered if he knew his eye was doing that.. I cleared my head, remembering he was waiting for an answer.

“Uhm.. Well… You know… there was a few people who.. ran by. I didn’t really get a good look at em. I guess.. they were kinda-” I made a strangled noise as Mr. Taisley squeezed my shoulder to get me to shut up. God, I was digging myself a hole.. I couldn’t lie to save my life.

“Um no I didn’t see who did it.” I said finally, letting out a deep breath when Mr. Taisley loosened his grip on my shoulder.

Mr. Mordick nodded, stepping out of the doorway so I could walk by.

“Thanks again Avery. I need to have a quick word with Mr. Taisley. You’re free to go. ” Mr. Mordick stated. Mr. Taisley’s hand fell off my shoulder as I walked out the door, taking a huge breath of relief on my way out. Thank God this was over!

“Oh and Avery?” I heard Principle Mordick call from behind me. My heart stopped. Just when I was almost free…What did he want now?

“Yeah?” I asked, turning around to face them. I briefly locked eyes with Mr. Taisley who was smirking ever so slightly. What was that for?

“Your shirt is inside out..” Mr. Mordick stated simply. My pulse quickened in sudden panic, and I sputtered out a reply.

"Oh, haha. That's just-" Mr. Mordick lifted his hand, interrupting me.

"Believe me Avery, I may be old but I'm not stupid." He said, looking at Mr. Taisley. I swallowed nervously, thinking he suspected something. Mr. Taisley was looking a bit uneasy as well. The principle let out a wheezy chuckle.

"Teenage boys and their hormones! Believe me, it seems like that's all that matters now, but soon enough you will want more from girls then a quick fling or two. Just remember that son." Mr. Mordick said, pointing his finger at me for emphasis. I stared at him, dumbfounded.

"Uhm..." I managed to choke out.

"Now run along boy. I'm sure you have homework to get to. And take it easy on the hand." He added on, dismissing me.

"Yes sir." I said curtly, chancing a look at Mr. Taisley. He obviously had found that amusing because he was biting his lower lip to keep from laughing. His bright eyes met mine and I scratched the back of my wild black hair before blushing. Nice, Avery..

“Oh and remember Avery, you have detention with me Monday after school. Don’t be late.” Mr. Taisley said.

I froze. Detention? For what? I was about to protest but I stopped when he shot me a piercing look. Um.. Okay..

I walked away, my mind swarming with the events that just took place.. Mr. Taisley's anger as he cleaned me up.. me spilling my guts to him so he wouldn't tell the principle what I did.. and that kiss. Oh my god, the kiss! I tried not to dwell on the fact that he had pulled away so quickly, but for a moment I was sure he had kissed me back.

No, I definitely didn't imagine that. I sighed as I walked away.. my fingertips grazing over my flushed lips..









Hmmmm... Okay so this chapter took me much longer than usual to write. I got writer's block half way through and wanted to shoot my laptop with a missile launcher.. Yeah I kept erasing things, and rewriting things... Then erasing MORE things. Yeah tell me what you think my little lovlies <3 <3 <3 Rad or bad? Hehehe I just made that up! It rhymed! Haha who had too much caffeine today?? This girl right here! Mmm anyways so I got a lil' hot writing this chapter.. and if you did too, lemme tell you this is NOTHING compared to what's coming. Yeah, be warned. I actually got WAY too carried away on this chapter if you know what I mean, and I had to erase it and take things slower. Am I saying too much? Yeah probably.. Okay thank you all and I love you!!!!!!!!!!! :) :P xoxo

Fri, July 8th, 2011 1:29am


Holy frickin' Avery!

So, like, I kind of left this website for a while after you didn't post a new chapter after chapter 4. Then I checked my e-mails last week and saw you had updated and I squealed like a 4 year old girl at a Selena Gomez concert! Then I got mad at you for making me (and all these other readers) wait so long, so I thought to myself "No, I'm not going to read it!" as if I could boycott your story of something.

But, well, I somehow found myself lured back here reading chapters 5 and 6 and ABSOLUTELY LOVED THEM!

Not so much the self-harm, but the situation in which that lead to, I did like. Mr. Taisley playing doctor? Yes please! Althought the emotions were still a little guarded, so I couldn't tell what was really going through Mr. Taisley's mind, I still very much appreciated the actions. Him helping to clean Avery, being sympathetic when Avery freaked out and recounted what had happened a few years ago.

Then the kiss?! Words can't even describe how amazing and confusion and weird and hot it was. It was amid of all of that for me reading it. But I have to agree with Avery's bewilderment at the fact that Mr. Taisley kissed back! So taboo, so WTF?, so hot!

Your little Author's Note at the end of chapter gets me excited for the future chapters. If the kiss was anything to go by, I'm very much interested in seeing where you'll take these two characters. Detention? My mind wanders to very strange places with that thought...

Great updates, and I'm so glad my little protest against your story was nothing but gibberish, because I enjoyed reading this. Just don't go on another 5 million year hiatus like you did before!


Fri, July 8th, 2011 11:09am

Baby Blue

I still love your story. its addicting. :D I can't wait to read more

keep me updated... please
