Suzanna had to admit Jeremy was drop-dead handsome and a sweet guy, too.
“Will you be my girlfriend,” he asked.
“No.”
“Why not?”
“Among other things, you’re far too young for me.”
“I’m seventeen,” Jeremy said, staring at her with his ice-blue eyes.
“I’m thirty.”
“What does that matter?”
“It matters.”
“Why?”
“Because I’m your teacher.”

I'm sure he figured it out for himself very well. He's 17, his hormones are raging, and I'm sure he's heard the news stories about those who didn't say "NO."

First, I want to welcome you to my blog. I always love when someone comments or becomes a follower and thereby lets me know they are reading.

I like your 55. Our themes were a little similar - boy and girl stuff.

Again, thanks for commenting,
PG
