Alex Kennith 18 year old high school student is foolishly in love with his high school teacher 31 year old Bradly O’Mara ( Barbie O’Mara’s uncle ). Alex is in his senior year and with only one more year to spend watching Brad , for the first time he feels the weight of disappointment. A truly apathetic teenager , Alex rarely gets excited or upset about anything, he spends little time studying and even less time associating with other students in his school. He has few friends and no family ( he was bounced back and forth between foster group homes until he turned 16 and was legally emancipated allowing him to support himself under the pretense he remains in school and has a job . ) he often spends his evenings at work as a server and assistant baker at Comfort Cafe ( he is currently being taught by Sammoyke Murasaki to create delicious deserts but he really has little interest in baking or cooking at first) Alex had planned for some time to go to college and graduate in anything that would help travel the world. He always admired when Brad would talk about visiting other countries and it somehow over time became his dream to see the things his precious teacher had seen. With his senior year half way over Alex started to understand that you can easily miss what was never yours to begin with. Days he usually spent in class diligently listening to Brad teach was now spent sulking about the not so distant future when he wouldn’t be able to see his teachers face light up with that expression of enthrallment when he would discuss the wine in france , the romantic atmosphere in paris, the safari planes in africa, historic cities like Venice and Florence in Italy. He listened intensively to every word he said and always inwardly swooned , but now his words seemed distant and discomforting. Without even realizing it he was desperately trying to fall out of love with his handsome teacher. But sometimes things don’t go as you plan, and in the last few months of senior year he got a new neighbor in his apartment, non other then his beloved teacher. Alex subconsciously celebrated the thought that he if he could keep his job and just attend to college locally that he could see Brad everyday and maybe even have something worth talking about when he got back from traveling. But Alex was never really the social butterfly and rather then take the chance to introduce himself to Brad as a neighbor he rigorously avoided ever meeting him anywhere outside of school, making sure to come and go when Bradly was inside his apartment. But two people can only live in the same building for so long before meeting face to face .
