A new beginning for us.
It's been two years since I left portland because I fell in love with one of my students I know that I shouldn't have let a relationship ever start but the more I learned about her the more I fell in love so after the camping trip I told her I wanted to be with her we were together for five months after what I heard at her court hearing I couldn't look at my self I started hating my self I was twenty-three years old having a serious realtionship with a sixteen year old, after the christmas break I finally told a fellow teacher about the relationship he told me to tell her parents.
After I told them about us they got real mad her dad said he would call the police but instead he told me to leave portland and don't come back until she was eighteen,so I left without a word to her I quit my job and moved back to minnesota it was hard not to talk to her everyday or be able to help her with her work there was somdays i wanted to risk everything just to see her again but I knew I couldn't do that to her I would tell my self she moved on I went on dates with other girls but never had a serious relationship with anyone ,finally after ten months she turned seventeen i sent her a bunch of stuff my u of m sweatshirt and a letter I had one more year left until I could see her again i started counting down the days after her birthday.
1 year later
Lux's birthday was in three days i was going to spend the weekend in portland, on wednesday I got in my truck and took off the whole trip i kept thinking what is she moved on and never wanted to see me again after i left her I told her that I wouldn't leave her and I did just that what if hated me I almost turned around and went back home but somthing was pulling be back to portland to the girl who had my heart.
