A chemistry nerd should know opposites always attract.
Troy: Of course I fell for a football jock. How could I not? But Jackson and I are polar opposites. Heís popular, confident, and as hot as hell in a tight T-shirt. Me? Iím just a scrawny, awkward nerd.
Another point of difference: heís straight. And as I trip, stumble, and stammer my way through all our conversations, my desire is growing at an alarming rate. I keep wondering what he looks like when heís on his knees.
As if my crush on him isnít bad enough, Jackson is assigned to be my partner on a year-long project, and I have no choice but to spend time with the hottest guy on campus. Bummer.
But the attraction is intensifying. Weíre on a collision course. I shouldnít be leaning in...
I think Iím going to kiss him.
Jackson: Sweet. I got partnered up with the biggest nerd on campus. If I play my cards well, a passing grade is guaranteed.
Troyís all shy and awkward; a classic nerd. But thereís more to him than heís showing. And itís making me curious.
I want to see him come out of his shell. I know he would be better off if he let his guard down. I want to be his friend, but he thinks Iím just another dumb jock. Except, I see him looking at me the way I could never look at him.
Am I sending the wrong message? Is he falling for me?
Heís leaning in fastÖ Heís about to kiss me.
And Iím not even ducking.
