Crazy. That's what the past week has been for Emma. She's been catching up with her school work that she's been behind in. She's been trying to keep out of trouble. She's been meeting with her therapist regularly to make sure that her feelings are at bay as well as her worries. The only real conversation that she's had with Franklin, her boyfriend, was in school, in class, or through text and it's been driving her crazy. She missed him and after dating him for about a year and a half, they still haven't had a first kiss. It's starting to make Emma feel that he doesn't really want to be with her. She has had nightmares that he's stringing her along until someone better comes along.
Emma sent Frankie a text. He agreed to meet her at the secluded part of the beach to take some still pictures of her because she wanted some of her. She hadn't had a lot of pictures taken of her due to her being in and out of foster care and the fact that she never had money for a camera. She's hoping to make some memories and she really wants her relationship with Franklin to work out. Hey babe. I'll meet you at the beach in about 15 minutes. I have to do some things around the house and call my therapist on my way to the beach. I can't wait to see you. It's been a while. Emma managed to get her stuff done and she made her way towards the beach. She found a rock and sat against it waiting for Franklin. She hoped that he would act at least a little normal with her today instead of the weird vibe she's been getting from him.

The school year was finally begin to wind down. Soon, it would be summer. Frank couldn't wait for it to be summer. He was planning on going back to London to visit his family. He hadn't been back in a while, and he missed them. Sometimes he missed living in London. America was different, and he liked it, but it wasn't home. He missed his mother's cooking. Particularly her cookies. Every day after school, his mother would have freshly baked chocolate chip cookies out for him. Now, he only ate store bought cookies. He never bothered to learn from his mom. Then again, he never thought he'd ever leave England.
Right now, Franklin really wanted to go back home. He was feeling very conflicted as of late. His relationship with a certain student wasn't something he was proud of, but he couldn't help it. There was something about her that he was drawn to. He just really wanted to talk to his dad about it. How could something so wrong feel so right? It was terribly frustrating.
Today he had promised Emma that he'd take some pictures of her. Frank hadn't photographed in a while, and he was itching to take some nice shots. The day was perfect for it. The lighting would make Emma look really pretty. He was getting his camera and stuff ready when he got a text from her. She was running a little late. Franklin, decided to watch some television for a bit before walking down to the beach. His little house was walking distance away from it. A program on the science station, Nova, caught his attention. He was so engrossed in it, he lost track of the time. When he found that out, he practically sprinted to the beach. Hopefully Emma was still there.
When he got there, he saw her sitting on the rocks. He approached and took a candid picture of her, a smile on his face. "So sorry I'm late! There was a show about black holes on Nova," he explained.

If someone had told Emma that she would have been dating someone older than her, she probably would have been like "okay sure." But if someone would have told her that she would be dating a teacher, she would have told them that they were crazy. Never in a million years did Emma ever think that she would be dating a teacher. But she did have to say that dating Franklin, while she was paranoid that he would dump her, it was actually quite nice. He was very responsible and he was always caring to her. He had this maturity about him that made her attracted to him. She wished that she could tell him how much he means to her and have him, hopefully, reciprocate the same feelings to her. She was afraid of opening up to him. She didn't want to ruin what they had going. But she was tired of waiting for that first kiss, waiting for that first move. It's been over a year now and they were at a standstill with how things were going.
Emma glanced at her phone. He was late. She sighed and looked out into the ocean. "Maybe it was too good to be true," She whispered to herself. Emma felt someone behind her and she heard his voice. A smile instantly appeared on her face. She looked over at him, "Of course black holes would be the cause of you being late. I don't mind though. I know how much science intrigues you." She smiled. "I really appreciate you meeting me here. I just feel like we haven't seen much of each other, and schools about to end... you probably want to go back home to your family in England for the summer so I probably won't see you as often."

Franklin laughed at her comment. "Hey, black holes are pretty important! If we don't learn all we can about them, we'll all be bloody screwed should we try to explore space further," he said. He caught himself, knowing full fell Emma didn't want to discuss physics and astronomy right now. Not when she was on summer vacation. What student would, though? "I do hope you're signed up for physics next year. I happen to be a pretty awesome teacher from what I've heard," he said jokingly. He liked to think he was a cool teacher, but that didn't mean he actually was. There was more than a possibility that he was just a goon. In fact, he was certain he was just a good. Heck, he had no idea what Emma saw in him actually. He immediately felt bad for taking his London trip this summer. Why was he feeling bad? That was ridiculous! He had a life outside of Emma. Or at least he liked to think he did. "My mother really misses me," he said, even though it was a little bit both ways. "But I promise I'll be back before the summer's up!" he said, putting his camera down. "Make sure you keep yourself out of trouble when I'm gone though, Okay?"

Emma couldn't explain it. There was something about the way Franklin talked about science that made her stomach flip. He got so excited and smiled widely as he talked. She smiled listening to him. He definitely made her happy and she couldn't believe that they lasted this long. She heard what he said and she nodded. "Of course I am. You're a pretty awesome guy, but I just might be biased, being your girlfriend and all. But no seriously, I can't wait for physics. It sounds like it's going to be fun. And I have my own personal tutor," She said to him with a small smile. Emma thought he was a really cool guy and she couldn't wait for him to be her teacher. She loved how he was a goon when it came to science. It was one of the things that made her love him so much.
Emma listened to him and she frowned slightly, looking out at the water. Why was she feeling like this? She was really going to miss him when he left to go to England. She heard what he said about his mother missing him. "I wish I had a real mother to miss me... I mean I have my foster moms, but it's not the same," Emma said softly. She wiped under her eye before he could see her cry. She never really talked about how she's feeling about being a foster kid to Frankie. She liked to pretend that she was okay and it didn't bother her at all. But that was a complete lie. She heard what he said about trouble and she looked over and him and faked a small smile that didn't reach her eyes. "I can only try," she said softly. "Will you call me?"
ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: That sounds familiar. I used to be that way. I still am, but I've learned to let go a little.

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): Alec is too good to me, how did I deserve him. I'm such a perfectionist that I am afraid to screw up
Sept 18, 2013 22:30:10 GMT -5
ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: Everyone screws up. I've screwed up so many times I can't even keep track, but you just have to pick yourself up and learn to forgive yourself which can be the hardest thing to do
Sept 18, 2013 22:28:38 GMT -5
EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): Thank you so much Ellen. I know Alec is there to encourage me, but sometimes I feel he's put me on this great mother pedestal. I'm afraid of screwing up.
Sept 18, 2013 22:25:29 GMT -5
ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: I wouldn't worry too much Emma. You're very maternal, something I never was, and I managed to do it alone. If you ever need to talk about parenting, I'm always here
Sept 18, 2013 22:10:52 GMT -5
EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): I'm just worried about being a good mother. Since my own mother is no longer here to advice me. I just want to do her proud *nervous look*
Sept 18, 2013 22:09:25 GMT -5
EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): well I think Alec will be worried when it comes to that age. He'll probably buy a shotgun and ward off any boy who comes a courting.

ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: -laughs- you don't have to worry about that for a while. I told Victoria when she was going into sixth grade, but I think it also depends on the child
