And he sure as hell doesn’t need a complication like Megan Thomas in his life. He wants nothing from no one and expects to live out his life in solitude.

Convinced her weight is the biggest reason why she’s a four time loser in the semi-finals for Teacher of the Year, Patty resolves to make some changes in her body and her life.

I kissed him instead.
