#SixSunday: A Lot to Teach Him

Happy Sunday Sixers! Thanks for stopping by! I always appreciate the comments and encouragement. I look forward to hopping around to other blogs and reading what other talented authors have shared!


Last week we saw Phoebe's initial reaction to being paired with Todd Miller for a big art project. Since this situation is the impetus that fuels the rest of the story and gives their relationship a place to grow, I thought I'd continue in that same scene today. Here we see Phoebe, after class is over, trying to convince Miss Stockton, the art teacher who is Phoebe's mentor, that she needs a new partner. Miss Stockton's response is that someone's got to work with him, but Phoebe is persistent!


"Come on, Miss Stockton," I said, lowering my voice so I wouldn't be heard by any students loitering outside the door. "He's only in this class because he thinks it'll be an easy A."


"You don't know that," she replied, peeking at me over the top rim of her glasses.


"Have you ever known of Todd MIller to take anything besides football and his social status seriously? He always take the easy way out."


She looked me straight in the eyes and said, "Then it sounds like he has a lot to learn, and you, my brightest student have a lot to teach him... and not just about art."

  3. Nice! This reminds me of Nora and Patch in Hush, Hush by Rebecca Fitzpatrick. I'm thinking this unlikely pairing will be ... er, educational for both of them. :)

  8. That's a smart teacher. She's handing out more than art lessons and letter grades.

  9. It's tough when a teacher doesn't see things your way! But it seems like that teacher knows what she's about. :)
