Description

The days of our youth are like shooting stars in the night sky—fleeting but unforgettable.

========

Not only is rookie teacher Choi Yeonri late for her first day of school, she also gets knocked off her feet by a reckless motorcyclist going seventy miles per hour in a school zone, landing in a disgraced heap in front of the discipline master. "That's ok," she tells herself, because Great Teacher Onizuka didn't become GTO by having an easy start either. Bursting with an overzealousness, she marches in to her first class thinking this is the beginning of a long and beautiful journey in shaping the lives of young minds.

Little does she know that what she's walking into is in fact a living hell, made a hundred times worse by the one motorcycle maniac who completely ruined her image on the first day of school—Kim Jongdae—problem student extraordinaire.

In between keeping up with her stacks of marking, fending off her mother's enthusiastic arrangement of blind dates and counselling the many troubled young minds in her class, she soon learns that teaching is perhaps not all that she expected it to be.

And neither is love.

 

 

Foreword

Author's Note: 

This is the first time that I'm writing a story featuring Chen as the lead character and it is way overdue! Chen is actually my second favourite member in EXO (after Kyungsoo) but I have mostly lacked inspiration for a Chen story until now. 

The premise of this story is nothing new and probably overused, but that's not stopping me anyhow. I suppose school days for most people would have encompassed a great deal of ups and downs, making friends, losing friends, laughing and crying over silly things that seemed so important back then, and generally just creating memories that last a lifetime. This story will follow the characters through all that and more—and in the process, everyone will grow up in one way or another. 

Besides members of EXO, you can assume all other characters in this story to be OCs, even if they share similar names as existing idols. 

Warning: There will be mention of bullying, suicide and possibly other sensitive topics in this story. 

Enjoy the story and subscribe, upvote or leave me a comment to let me know what you think!

Chapter 44: I finally finished this story! It took me a while because I barely have time to read but whenever I had the time I always found myself itching to come back and read this. At first I really hated the teacher student dynamic because being an educator myself it's always been really weird to have a teacher fall for a student. I don't know how you did it but you made it work! It wasn't at all disturbing to me their characters were written so well I could feel what they felt. It also helped that Yeonri didn't really see Jongdae so much in the school setting since she was constantly out trying to get him to come school. It made me really sad that Yeonri had to leave school because you could tell how much she loved teaching. Her tenacity really shined and it was a little disappointing seeing her give up so easily. After reading how Heejung passed I understood Yeonri completely. It was really hard seeing Heejung fall apart in the reading because there are so many students like that. It's incredibly sad seeing the pressure from school tear them apart.

Now Jongdae, wow Jongdae. What can I say? He was definitely my favorite character. Seeing him in pain made me feel pain, seeing him be happy made me happy. He was such an incredible character but so so soooo stubborn. I wanted to go into the story so many times and slap himmmmm He had so much potential to get out that hell hole but yet he stayed. Part of me thinks it's because he was trying to protect Jongin for longer but then in the end it was all to piss of his 'father' because a paternal figure he sure wasn't! His back story broke my heart knowing he was dumped out into the street by his 'father' because he could taint his reputation it was incredibly sick. Although one good thing came out of it. Jongdae is really on his way to become a doctor! I FEEL SO PROUD OF HIM

This was an incredible read can't wait to read the sequel! Thank you for writing xx
