K is back and she has brought us one of her delightfully filthy age gap, teacher/student stories. Teacher of Nothing introduces us to a new family, and I expect that we’ll be seeing more of this family in the future, but for right now, it’s all Callum and Willa.
Callum is a high school teacher. A big part of why he is a teacher is to spite his dad. Callum’s family basically owns the town that they live in, and all of his siblings have done what Daddy Dearest wanted with their lives. But there are a lot of reasons why Callum wants to spite his dad. The biggest one being that Dear Old Dad fucked Callum’s HS girlfriend, got her pregnant, and married her. In fact, Callum’s twin half-sibs are now students at his school. He seems to get along with them well enough. His nephew is also a student at the school, and the kids are all good friends.
Then there is Willa. She is a student in Callum’s stats class. She is really smart, but nearly invisible, except to her asshole step-brother who is a huge fucking creep, and I mean, huge. He bullies her at school, he bullies her at home. But Willa only has eyes for her teacher. And he only has eyes for her.
Callum can’t get Willa off his mind. He stares at her during class, he does what he can to make her life easier. The problem is that he doesn’t want to be like his dad, and screw an 18 year old like his dad did. But he is just drawn to Willa and nothing seems to distract him from her.
I get Callum being mad at his dad, but I kinda feel like it’s been nearly 20 years, maybe it’s time to just let it go. I mean, there are a lot of other reasons he’s angry with his dad, and I totally get those, but the whole fucking Callum’s girlfriend deal shouldn’t really be one of them. At least in my opinion.
I think Willa is doing the absolute best that she can. Until Callum came along, she really had no one on her side. Her step-father is a monster, her mother is a druggie, and her step-brother is weirdly fascinated with her. She’s been on her own for too long. Callum’s younger relatives take her under their wings, which helps her just as much as Callum being into her did. It was good for her to have people her age around her, and they helped in many ways.
