Yoison is a little freaked out on his first day of practice teaching in Mr. O’Connor’s social studies class. He can’t believe some of the toughs in this school–and when a big bad biker steps into the classroom, greeted enthusiastically by all the students, Yoison is surprised to find out this dude is Mr. O’Connor. His students call him Rut, and he’s unlike any teacher Yoison’s ever worked with. For starters, no other teacher has turned Yoison on quite like this! It’s high school all over again.
This spicy little short comes across as the intro to a relationship, as it only takes place over a period of the hours in a classroom. Yoison (pronounced like Jason) is a bit nervous about his first day of practice teaching. The type of school is known for kids who couldn’t make it in the regular system and after his last job in a posh high school this is quite a change, although he’s rather impressed that he’s no longer the only non-Caucasian in the school. However when his new supervising teacher arrives, he’s even more boggled. The man is wearing leather pants, his students call him Rut and he’s very openly gay.
As the day wears on, Yoison is impressed with Rut’s style and his ability to engage students who would most likely have tuned out of the school system. At the end of the day, Rut acts on what has been Yoison’s obvious attraction during the day and it ends with a brief sexual interlude in the classroom, with the possibility of more. I do have to say I have a great respect for teachers who can teach outside the box when necessary as some kids don’t respond well to traditional education methods, so I quite enjoyed the idea of Rut getting through to the kids. And the sex scene is hot and spicy (although I kept wondering if there was a classroom window or if the door was locked), but the story is really only the start of their relationship. You don’t know anything about Rut or his background, as the entire story takes place in the classroom, and while the POV is from Yoison, you don’t know much about him either beyond his lustful thoughts for Rut or his nervousness about the new job.
However it is well-written and if you are in the mood for something short and spicy this might do the trick.
