Can the principal convince Jen to stop running away?

Teacher's crush

Jennifer Carlson returns to Eureka Springs in spite of her promise to never move back. Newly graduated, her only goal is to help her dad and get out of town. However, the good-looking biker has her second guessing what she really wants. 

High school principal, Robert Allen has never been so conflicted. He was attracted to Jen before she walked into his office for an interview. Her sass, attitude, and the pain she tries to hide behind those big blue eyes make her unforgettable. 

Jen needs a job, but she also longs for someone to see the real her and want her anyway. Rob could be that guy if only he can convince her she doesn't have to keep running away.

Sample text:

She sighed and stopped walking, but she didn’t make eye contact. Come to think of it, she hadn’t done it with Blake either. “Look, it’s not personal, but I don’t want anything to do with this town.”

“Then asking for your number would be pointless?” Rob swiped at the sweat under his chin strap. He watched her lips twitch again. That was the third time he’d almost made her smile. What would it take to get one from her?

She didn’t answer right away. Instead, she looked across the yard they’d stopped beside. He knew it belonged to Eric Hunt. 

“Don’t you know bikers and runners don’t get along?” she asked.

“I’ve never heard that. It seems to me that runners and cyclists would have a lot in common. Love of being active and outside, healthy eating…”

Jen turned to him, that elusive smile finally breaking free. It lit up her entire face. She practically glowed when she smiled. For a moment, Rob thought she might change her mind and give him her number. Then she shook her head and a mask of sadness descended on her again. It caused a physical pain in his chest to see that smile disappear.

“You should forget you ever met me.” She turned and hurried across the yard.

Author review:
The translation was great. She worked quickly. I did have to reformat the document though. It took forever to remove whole pages of hard returns.
