“I grimaced. “I’ve never done that before.”

He smiled. “They all say that. But if it’s true, we’re even. I’ve never kissed a trick.”

I rested my arms on the rickety table between us. He looked pale, and there were dark circles under his eyes. “I want to know why. You’re brilliant, one of the best students I’ve ever had. Why are you…?”
