context: theodosia is in ninth grade and parent teacher conferences come around.
“Theodosia! It’s nice to see you and you are?” I asked the man who was standing closely to her. He extended his hand.
“Aaron Burr- her father. It’s a pleasure to meet you.”
“Miss. L/N. Theodosia writes about you a lot, I am glad to finally meet you.” I smiled and he looked at Theodosia, who was now blushing slightly.
“This is her?” Aaron asked and I glanced at Theodosia, slightly confused. He looked back at me and upon noticing my confusion, his face softened a bit. “Theo, do you want to go wait outside?” He asked her and she nodded silently before proceeding to leave the room. “She has talked a lot about you. She says that you helped her a lot with her mothers death.” He said, looking older than he did before and I frowned before nodding a bit.
“I just wanted to show her that writing can help you in ways that talking to people can’t.”
“I agree. The writings that’s she’s allowed me to read are just amazing. Things she maybe only admits to Philip Hamilton.”
“He has been a rock for Theodosia as well. Those two are practically inseparable.”
“I’m glad to hear it. Her mother always wanted them to end up dating.”
“May I ask what Theodosia has really told you about me?”
“She says you remind her of her mother and she thinks that we should- what do the kids call it? ‘Hook up’.” He said and I felt my cheeks grow red.
“From what I’ve read, Theodosia thinks very highly of her mother so I don’t think that I-”
“From what she’s told me and from meeting you so far, I would say that she was right.”
“Thank you, Mr. Burr.”
“Now I gotta go- I have something to discuss with Alexander Hamilton- he is an econ and government teacher as well as head of the debate club.”
“Alex is very nice so I wouldn’t see you having any trouble with him.”
“Me and Alexander we go way back and he is quite… hotheaded sometimes.”
“You can say that again.” I joked and he smiled slightly, opening his mouth to say something before closing it.
“It was nice meeting you.”
“You too.” He said before picking up his bag and walking out of the door but not before checking over his shoulder and smiling at me. I saw a stray piece of paper on the floor and I picked it up and looked at it in curiousity.
On a small scrap of paper in small, neat letters and numbers, Aaron Burr had written his number and name and had dropped it on my floor.
I smiled at the piece of paper and tucked it in to my coat pocket.
Theodosia peeked in the room and when she saw me smiling, her own smile widened.
“Theodosia, can you please send in George Eacker and his parents? Thank you.” I asked her.
“Did you like him?” Theodosia asked me and I looked at her.
“Your father seems like a very nice man.”
“I can tell that he likes you as well.” She grinned slowly.
“You’re one of my students Theodosia, I don’t think we should be discussing my love life.”
“Whatever you say Miss. L/N. I’ll get Eacker.” She said before backing out of the room.
“Aaron, what are you doing here?” I asked, looking up from my computer monitor and he smiled widely.
“I just got transferred to this school. I am going to be teaching history.”
“It’s good to see you and it’s going to be great having another friend in the building.”
“This is only going to bring back Theo’s theory that we are meant to be together.” He joked and I laughed.
“So I’m guessing she hasn’t showed you that story that she wrote several days ago?” I asked and I bit back a laugh when I saw Aaron’s reaction.
“She wrote something about us? I am so sorry, truly.” He apologized and I brushed it off.
“It makes grading papers more interesting. She has quite the imagination and I am surprised she hasn’t shown you yet.”
“I am surprised as well but I have to ask, would it be so bad if we did decide to try and go on a date?” He asked cautiously and I stopped typing and I stared at my computer monitor for a second. “I mean I-”
“No. I don’t think that it would be so bad.” I said and he smiled at his feet and started to walk away.
“If that was you asking me out, the answers yes. Just text me when and where.”
“Good- that’s great. And I will.”
