I find myself in the need for some younger advice and knowing you to be one for the ladies, I can think of no better place to come.
I may or may not be a teacher at an unnamed school of Witchcraft and Wizardry that may, or may, not by somewhere in Scotland.
You understand my desire for anonymity, I hope.
I have found myself becoming more and more attracted to a student of mine, and just don’t know what to do about it. Initially I though this was to be a passing infatuation that we teachers are susceptible to, but recently it has become clear that it is far more than that.
The young woman in question is of unparallel beauty and intelligence and I am becoming more and more obsessed with her each and every passing day. The way she teases me in class by asking questions I know she knows the answer to. Gazing upon me with those big green eyes, and flicking her long, thick, red hair tempestuously over her shoulder. She is driving me to distraction! I find that recently I’m turning a blind eye to her when she misbehaves in class, not that the girl does often for she is indeed a model student, but I’m afraid to punish her. The thought of keeping her behind class or putting her in a detention where I should find myself alone with her is simply out of the question. I would not be able to contain myself. But, my dear Mr. Black, the more I deny myself her company the more frustrated I become.
What am I to do? Should I throw caution to the wind and confess myself to her? Is there any hope that such a young woman could ever fall for an old codger like me? And if I do what if she laughs in my face? The resulting embarrassment would surly finish me off.
I throw myself upon your younger judgment,
