AUTHORESS’S NOTE: I apologize for the delay in posting this chapter, but I haven’t been permitted much time with the stresses and strains of school and whatnot. Anyway, I hope this extra-long chapter was worth the wait. :) Thank you all for reading and reviewing! Every word is truly cherished. :) I hope you enjoy Chapter 4!
Mr. Burns almost immediately noticed that I had been glancing apprehensively at the clock every five minutes and questioned me after the third glance.

I turned to Mr. Burns in surprise and stuttered, No, no, of course not, sir. I cherish every moment were together, its only thatwell, Im meeting someone on my break today and the impending intensity of the meeting is making me rather anxious.
