Chapter 1

Mercedes stared at the mangled body on the floor…how could she be responsible for murdering a person she couldn't hurt a fly. She backed up to the wall as she felt like the room was getting smaller. As lights shinned all around her she began to panic. She heard the sirens and fell to the ground. She looked around then dropped the lamp and got up. She ran from the house as fast as she could, feeling someone behind her she tried to run faster. 

Even though she knew it was self-defense, she didn't want to take a chance at getting arrested. She ducked and dodged through the bushes and tried to run as fast as her legs would take her.As she ran, she felt herself being jerked she began to scream as she felt the hands of her attacker on her back. She screamed as they tumbled to the ground.

"Get off of me let me go now."

"Wait please just wait. I am here to help you."

Mercedes glanced up at a tall figure helping her up. He pulled his coat off and wrapped it around her.

"It's okay you're gonna be ok."

He pulled out a cell phone then looked at her.

"Let's get you somewhere safe."

As they walked to the car, Mercedes felt as if she was being jerked back and forth. She held on tight as she felt she was being forced away from her protector. As Mercedes opened her eyes, she saw her best friend waking her.

"Cedes, girl you need to get up I heard you screaming all the way down the hall."

Mercedes sat up in her bed and glanced at her best friend. "Tana I had that dream again."

Santana sat on Mercedes bed and glanced at her sadly, this was the third time this week she had this dream. Mercedes looked over at Santana and smiled. No matter the trouble Santana was there. Mercedes brushed her hair out of her face, and realized her fingers were trembling.

Santana looked at her best friend and pulled her into a hug. Mercedes and Santana couldn't have been more different. While Santana was tall, long and lean, Mercedes was short, thick and curvy. While Santana was out going and liked to try new things, Mercedes wanted everything to stay the same. And yet they were best friends since birth. What one did the other did as well. You couldn't separate them if you tried. Santana hugged Mercedes.

"Sweetie maybe you should talk to someone about this…it can't be healthy."

"Yeah I'll just go to the police station and say I'm having dreams I'm gonna kill someone please tell me what to do…no I don't think so I'm fine as long as it stays a dream."

"Well keeping it to yourself isn't helping either."

"I know but they will look at me like I'm crazy. I'm looking at myself like I'm crazy."

"Girl everyone knows you're estar loco."

Mercedes looked at the clock on the wall and jumped up.

"Great I'm gonna be late."

She ran into the bathroom and slammed the door.

"Late for what you don't have class till one and it is only 9:45?"

"I have tutoring today."

"You are the only person I know who looked forward to tutoring."

Mercedes peaked her head from out the door. "I am not looking forward to tutoring I am looking forward to seeing Sam."

"I can see why I mean trouty mouth is fine, he may not be my type but he can get it."

"Will you stop calling him that! And stop with the he can get it stuff."

Santana laughed loudly. "Hey its not my fault his mouth is so big he can polish newborns heads… anyways what are you wearing?"

"Jeans and a tee shirt why."

"Girl come on I know you ain't dated since Puck but jeans and a tee let me find you something from your closet."

"Tana I have dated since Noah I had that date with whats his face just last month! Its not that serious."

"I will be right back."

Santana walked into the closet and a few minutes later walked back into the room with a pair of her hip hugging jeans and a crop top off the shoulder black and pink top.

"Peek your head out and take a look at this outfit…its simple and cute. You can even wear boots with it."

"Tana I like Sam but he's 28 and I'm 25 he's already graduated and has a good job. He's a High School Math Teacher. I'm still stuck in college failing math he wouldn't be interested in me."

"Come on you and I both know if he wasn't interested he wouldn't keep inviting you on these study dates outside of tutoring."

Mercedes held her hand up. "No don't even twist that. He invites me because a lot of the time I

cant get to him early. He has first and second Period off that is why he can help me."

"Yeah well if he wasn't interested he would be stupid. You are a beautiful smart woman who needs a man so put on this outfit go out there and work it."

"I'll do it. Only because if I don't I wont hear the end of it."

"You know me too well."

Santana tossed the clothes to Mercedes she slammed the door and laughed. Santana was determined to get her a man.


Mercedes checked herself out in the mirror before returning. Even though this was just a tutoring session, she had to admit she wanted to impress Sam. She had entered the room feeling stupid…but when she saw the look on Sam's face it was worth feeling like a fool. She knew she

was falling for Sam. All the reasons she made up for not seeing him outside of class just seemed stupid.

Mercedes put on some lip-gloss and fluffed her hair before leaving the restroom. As she walked back into the class, he motioned her to sit down.

"I see where you messed up see you're trying to add the top and the bottom but this equation only calls for you to do the top."

"Oh let me try again and see if I can get the right answer this time."

She looked at the paper trying to concentrate on the problem. However, she couldn't help staring at Sam. As he was walked around the class looking out the window, she saw his whole 6'2 height and it was clear to her that, he could tower over her with no problem. His abs were tight around his form fitting shirt. She bit her lip as she saw his biceps through his shirt. His style was clean cut and sexy. When he smiled at her, she was over taken by the minty fresh scent of his toothpaste. And the glistening sparkles of his teeth.

She stared into his green eyes and realized she could look into them for hours. And when he spoke his voice commanded authority even if it was just to say hi. He had a slight goatee, which

made him even more dashing, she enjoyed the unshaven look on him. There was just something about this man that made Mercedes go weak in the knees. As he faced her, she went back to work.

"Still having problems?"

"Um no I actually think I got it right this time can you come check."

He walked over and stood besides her and bent down. She was amazed at how close he was standing to her. Her heart skipped a beat at the smell of his cologne he smelled so good.

"It looks like you know what you're doing."

"Ok so what about number ten I can't figure out why I am still coming up with twelve."

"Well that's because it is twelve."

"But I thought you said it was wrong?"

"Well even teachers make mistakes."

Mercedes laughed.

"So why do you tutor?"

"What do you mean?"

"I mean you're a high school teacher. Don't you get enough of teaching during the week?"

"Well to be honest I was kinda pushed into it… Dr. Mikale said that he needed someone to help a bright student who didn't know her own potential and I agreed. Of course having him take over my college prep class for a few weeks was a bonus."

"Well I am glad you did."

"Yeah me too."

He looked into her eyes and noticed how when she smiled they seemed to brighten up. He quickly looked away.

"So is math the only subject you are having trouble in?"

"Yeah I have always hated math."

"Well you are improving I don't see why you need a tutor but I am here to help anyway I can."

"Well I am glad cause I have improved my grade by one letter grade I am passing with a B. He said if I keep this up I would pull my GPA up and be back on the dean's list."

"Your parents must be so proud of you…good grades…do you work."

"Yeah I work at the library…its not a great job but it pays well and I like working and seeing all the kids come in and reading to them when I can."

"You are a very impressive woman."

"If I was really impressive then I would have graduated already."

"So why haven't you?" Sam sat on the desk next to her.

"I started late…Graduated on time and all I just wasn't feeling school at the time and now I am paying for it."

"So why didn't you want to?"

"You know how it is sometimes. Things happen you can't control and you just fall into a rut."

"Yeah I know how that is."

"So can we can end early today? I wouldn't ask but I need to study for a quiz in My English lit class. This class and theat are the only two I need to graduate."

"Oh ok I guess we can so we will meet the same time Thursday?"

"Uh yeah sure…same time same place."

Mercedes grabbed her things and walked towards the door. Sam cleared his throat.

"Hmmm uh Mercedes you know if you ever need my help off school property I could meet you somewhere."

"You know if I didn't know any better I would swear you were asking me out."

"Well maybe I am but if you say no I'm not…so would you go out with me?"

She turned and faced him…she wanted to play hard to get but he was just so cute.

"Sure I would like that a lot you have my number just call me with the details."

She walked away but stopped at the doorway. She turned and faced him.

"Why?"

"Pardon me?"

"Why are you asking me out?"

He cleared his throat again.

"Well I have been tutoring you for about three months now and I have really began to like you…I think we would have a great time together you know hanging out and having fun…why did you accept?"

She smiled.

"Because I think you're cute."

She walked out the door.
