NOTE TO THE READERS: I just wanted to clear up the timeline for this story. This story is intended to take place before most of Lisa’s main interactions with Mr. Smithers on the show. This is before she sees his screensaver of Burns or helps him on the mountain, et cetera. Just wanted to make that clear, for purposes of this story making sense later on:) Thank you all for reading and reviewing. It truly means a lot to me! Hope you enjoy the next chapters, and please continue to R&R!
The rest of the school week fluttered by more rapidly than I was accustomed to. Every day seemed surreal, as my thinking periods were filled with new ideas for jazz compositions and innovative art designs, but mostly Mr. Smithers. I told myself that it wasnt a crush. No, it couldnt be that. He was much older than me, and besides, Lisa Simpson didnt waste her time with meaningless things like crushes. It was just a fascination. That was all.
