Chapter 1

This is something I began writing a long long time ago. and well, I recently found it among my documents and thought I'd continue writing it. So the first 5-6 chapters were written almost a year ago. and the chapters after that will be whatever I've begun to write now. I hope you like this one. All mistakes are mine.

AN: I guess you could say Kate is studying at a university. Oh and Johanna Beckett is alive.

Chapter 1

"Did you hear about Prof. Matthews?" Maddie asked Kate when she caught up with her walking down the college hall way to their class. They had English literature now and they were already late.

"no, what about him?"

"word is he met with an accident and is pretty critical in the hospital"

"that's horrible. What happens to his classes now?"

"I don't know, I heard some of the guys saying there's a new prof assigned to our class. And he's coming in today."

They had reached their lecture room and rushed in to take their seats. There was no professor in class yet. And it remained that way for the next 10 minutes.

Principal McCord walked in then, and the class settled down quickly. What all of them noticed at once was the young man who had entered in behind him. Kate couldn't care less who it was. She was too busy finishing an assignment she had forgotten to do at home.

"Settle down class" the principal instructed.

"As some of you already know, Prof Matthews will not be able to teach you due to his grave health conditions.

Here with me is Mr. Alexander Rogers. He will be taking your literature lectures until we find a permanent replacement for ."

He then turned to the young man and said "I don't think you should have any problem. Our batch of literature students are very smart and disciplined"

"I shall see for myself," he smiled and the principal left soon after.

"Good morning class. Let me introduce myself again. My name's Alexander Rogers and I will be taking English literature with you temporarily. Now let me get some rules straight..."

He noticed a boys hand raised.

"Yes... Do you have something to say?"

"yes. Is this some prank? You look maybe two years older than all of us. You can't be a prof."

And that caught Kate's attention. She finally looked up to see who this new professor was. And she agreed. She couldn't see him too well from the seat at the end of the class she always sat at. But from whatever she could see... He looked really young to be teaching them anything.

"I'm sorry to disappoint you, but yes. I am your professor. Whether you like it or not. And about my age, I'm 28. Deal with it."

The class broke out into whispers and he spoke loudly. "I will not tolerate such behaviour. I expect full discipline in my class."

And he went on talking, stating everything that he expected from them. Kate however couldn't pay attention at all. She was going to be in big trouble if she didn't finish this assignment for her next class. She couldn't let her grades go down the drain just cause of one assignment.

Prof. Rogers had started with his class and was using an audio visual aid to teach. The lights in the class were all turned down and so Kate found it easier to do her work without the fear of getting caught.

"You there, on the second last seat" she heard his voice loud and clear. And she knew he was calling out to her.

"Tell me your name and then I want you to tell the class whatever you grasped from the audio visual"

"great!" she mumbled under her breath. But didn't say anything after. She just nervously looked at the screen that had been stopped on the last slide that said 'The End'

"my names Kate. And I'm sorry; I don't know what it was about" she said with her arms folded across her torso.

"You get 5 brownie points for being honest with yourself. Now bring me those sheets you have been writing on ever since class has begun"

"Sir, it's an assignment."

"Does it have anything to do with literature?"

"no... But..."

"I didn't think so either. Place them on my desk now."

"sir, you can't be serious, I could lose my grade if I don't submit these" she was highly frustrated.

"I'm sorry... But rules are rules. I will not have my students doing any other subject during my class"

Kate huffed in annoyance and walked down to the front of her class and placed her sheets of paper on his desk and walked back up to her seat briskly. He then continued his lecture.

She couldn't pay attention at all. She was just really angry. She took her phone out and quickly texted Maddie. "Who does he think he is?"

And Maddie's reply came within seconds. "IKR. The nerve. He's not even permanent faculty."

"what am I going to do now? He has my assignment!" she replied.

"You'll just have to write it all over again. Kate... Don't you think he's kinda hot?!"

"Omg Maddie? I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to get away with writing that assignment all over again. Focus!"

She was typing when that feeling came over her like she was being watched. She gulped and closed her eyes. Today wasn't going well.

"Ms Kate. I'm afraid you're going to have to turn in your phone."

"You're confiscating my phone?" she asked.

"That or you can leave my class." he was serious.

"Oh come on! This is ridiculous" she whined.

"Do you see anyone laughing?" he spoke in a serious tone.

Kate looked around. Maddie was lipping a 'sorry' to her.

Kate huffed in annoyance and stood up. She put her bag on a shoulder and said "Fine. Just so you know. I can't wait till they find a permanent replacement for Prof Matthews." Saying this, she walked out of the class.
