Ezria Off Screen

By Mystie Johnson

Drama / Romance

Chapter 1: 1x01

*This chapter takes place off screen during and after season 1 episode 1. Hope you enjoy the story.*

*Aria's POV*

I had just arrived home from the bar, where I'd met and made out with a cute and awesome guy named Ezra, just a few minutes ago.

Ever since I left I couldn't stop thinking about him. The way his hair fit perfectly on his face and how he had a barely noticeable goatee. The way his lips fit perfectly into mine and how we moved in perfect unison when we kissed, like we were meant to kiss each other.

Maybe I'm being crazy by thinking like that, I mean he just finished college and I'm still in high school. But, as I lay here on my bed, in my room filled with boxes, waiting to be unpacked, I couldn't help but think about him, in a way that I haven't ever thought about someone. Not even the person I had a crush on for a while.

I feel like an idiot for feeling this way, but age wouldn't matter, yes it would, part of me screamed, he's older, way older and your in your first couple years of high school.

I didn't know what to do. Do what's right in other peoples' heads and mine or do what's right in my heart?

*Ezra's POV*

I lay on my couch in my tiny little apartment I own, thinking about the wonderful girl I'd met earlier that day.

I couldn't help or stop thinking about her. The picture of her glued into my head. The way her skin felt when I touched it and the way her lips felt when I kissed them were locked in my brain, like I was experiencing right now right here.

I had finally decided tomorrow after work I would find her and I would ask her to be my girlfriend. I mean she was perfect. I knew I would never meet anyone like this, and if I didn't take the chance to know her now, I would loose her.

*After school when Aria and Ezra saw each other in class.*

*Aria's POV*

I was in the bathroom after class. All I could think of was, things just got a whole lot more complicated. But I couldn't help feeling like it didn't matter. If he felt the same way I did after last night maybe we could find a way for it to work?

I stayed in the bathroom and thought about him up in till the bell rang, even then he kept popping up in my mind throughout the day.

I decided sometime during the day that I was going to see him after school and talk to him about last night.

*Ezra's POV*

I was sitting at my desk after school. I was supposed to be preparing for the next day, but it was hard to concentrate, I kept thinking about Aria.

I knew I couldn't have a relationship with her, for two reasons. One was I was a lot older then her, I mean, I just finished college and have a job and she's still in college. Two, I was her teacher, so it was, is, inappropriate and illegal.

No matter how much I knew it was wrong, all I wanted to do was forget about everything wrong about it and kiss her, at least one more time.

After a few minutes of thinking I finally decided I would do the right thing and forget, or at least ignore, the way I feel about her.

That's when she walked through my door.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed. I loved the character of Kayla being inserted into this story, and the way she affected and shaped the life of the original story into something totally new and interesting. I lo...

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable. The story also has some sick plot twists, which I never saw coming. I loved the fact that it is an adorable love story but has its mystery touc...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

brettylee: The narrative is slick yet punchy. Life, Family and Friends I believe is the core message so it’s easy to relate to. It’s surprisingly action packed. The author does a good job at keeping you guessing. Just when you think all is right, whack, the unexpected happens. The dialogue is energetic and ...

annie08c: I really like this story, I can relate to it a lot and with how she feels, the boyfriend and the events that happened but I'm a little bit younger. It was really good plot, really liked how you stuck to the topic and you had a new title for every chapter making me guess what's going to happen. Ma...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

zoheusher20: What more can I say? The writing style and little details drew me into the book and for the entirety of the story I was Juliet. I felt her turmoil and emotions and every trouble or triumph as they arrived. This story was very different and had quite a few little but unexpected twists that made it...

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Jennifer Kane Martin: I am a high school teacher, and the dialogue and inner thoughts are PERFECT. However, the lack of capitalization, punctuation, and the typos are distracting. Don't let these get in the way of a potentially good story.
