I had a huge crush on my high school history teacher Mr. Botts. He was charming, knowledgeable, and seemed to genuinely care about his students.
He was always giving students extra tuition and staying late after school. It was suspicious of course.
But things took a turn for the worse when I found out he had been sleeping with one of my classmates. I was horrified.
It was a huge scandal in our school, and it completely shattered the image I had of him in my head. I realized that he was just like any other person – flawed and capable of making mistakes.
