Mother’s Teacher’s Pet, Scene #01
Sovereign Syre, a high school teacher, is in her classroom tidying up. It’s the end of the school day, so there are no students around. Her step-daughter, Gianna Gem, comes by and leans in the doorway with a backpack over her shoulder. ‘Are you ready to go, Mom?’ she asks, looking a little annoyed. ‘I’m almost done, honey!’ Sovereign says, good-naturedly. Gianna huffs, saying that if she takes too long, she’ll just walk. It’s clear she’s moody.Sovereign catches onto the sour mood immediately. She asks Gianna what’s the matter. Gianna hesitates at first, seemingly contented to be grumpy, but after some coaxing from Sovereign, Gianna trudges into the room and drops her bag on a desk. She whines, why does she have to be stuck with having her step-mom as her high school homeroom teacher? Sovereign is surprised, asking her what that means? Gianna insists that it feels like Sovereign looks for every possible opportunity to embarrass her in class. She’s the laughingstock with her friends and peers.Sovereign’s constantly treating her all sweetly and praising her work in front of the class. ‘But your work really IS good,’ Sovereign says defensively, so why shouldn’t she use it as an example for the class? And WHY does Sovereign have to always use Gianna’s name in her hypothetical examples, too? It feels like she’s picking on her. Especially now when it’s during the module about… sex education?Sovereign says that she doesn’t feel like she uses Gianna’s name in examples any more than anyone else in the class. Maybe she’s doing it more so now that they’re talking about sex ed, just because she doesn’t want to make the other students uncomfortable. ‘But it’s okay to make ME uncomfortable?’ Gianna laments.Sovereign frowns and apologizes, saying she didn’t know she was making Gianna THAT uncomfortable. Sex is such a natural thing, so why is she so embarrassed? ‘We’re family, and that’s just… so private… My friends think it’s totally weird, and make fun of me ALL the time.’Gianna looks more flustered as she admits that they… make fun of her because they think Sovereign… has the HOTS for Gianna. Sovereign lets out a laugh. Of course there’s no truth to THAT! Gianna looks even more hurt, and Sovereign seems confused, why does it bother Gianna so much? Gianna looks flustered as she tries to resist answering, but soon admits that she… maybe has a bit of a crush on Sovereign.Sovereign studies her daughter, more intrigued, then touches her shoulder in an affectionate way. She tells her daughter that it’s okay if she has some feelings towards her. She’s 18 now — a grown woman, even if her hormones are still a bit out of whack. Gianna starts to protest, but then quiets down and admits that she doesn’t WANT to have these feelings for Sovereign… It’s just that ever since she turned 18, she’s been drawn to Sovereign in a way she’s never known before. But she was never close to her real mom, so she doesn’t know if this is her totally misreading how they show affection?Sovereign assures her daughter that it’s normal to be sexually frustrated at her age. Sovereign thinks that them having sex will help resolve the sexual frustration and the feelings about Sovereign. Gianna hesitates, nervous to take the plunge, but when Sovereign sensually caresses her arm and gently kisses her neck, Gianna can no longer resist.They’re going to give a whole new meaning to the words TEACHER’S PET!
