#SixSentenceSunday ~ The Professor and Adelaide Wanna Be Bad Box Set
Welcome to another week of Six Sentence Sunday! This week, I would like to share with you, The Professor and Adelaide. I wrote this short about two middle aged people who are finding themselves again after bitter divorces and heartbreak. They are complete opposites, but they fit. I hope you enjoy their story.
“Coffee would be fantastic.”
“Great.” She glanced at her feet. “Is this appropriate? You are the teacher, after all.”
Alistair laughed. “I’m a writer. I could never be a teacher. Besides,” he leaned in. “It’s not like you’re going to take advantage of me.”
Her breath hitched. “I’d never.”
Yet, she thought it, perhaps. Her pulse slammed against the supple flesh of her neck. Her pupils dilated. “Coy joke, Adelaide. Relax.”
After her divorce and her son leaving for college, Adelaide Miller is ready to try something new. The local community college is offering a six-week program on English literature, poetry and dramas, taught by none other than Alastair Kline.
New York Times Bestseller Alistair Kline, is in America for a twelve-month tour to promote his new book and to get to know his fans. Every six weeks he changes locations, and this time he ends up in a quiet, little Midwestern town, teaching at a community college.
The man could read a phone book and Adelaide would sit and listen to him.
Unfortunately, the class isn’t about listening, it’s about participating and writing a story. She’d love to write a romance, however her source material is lacking. What starts out as harmless flirting when he offers to help, escalates, and the line between professor and student blurs.
