“Ms. Todd, could you stay after class for a moment, please?” Esperanza said as everyone started packing up their books and bags.

Mary Ellen blinked and looked up, brushing her lank blonde hair from her glassy blue eyes. “Why?”

“We’ll discuss it,” Esper said, giving the teen a level look.

Mary Ellen sighed. “Fine,” she muttered.

“Catch you later, babe,” Reihan said, giving Mary Ellen a kiss.

Mary Ellen briefly perked up a bit, but then slouched again. “Don’t look at me like that,” she hissed quietly at Sheldon.

Sheldon quickly looked away, ducking his head and following Reihan out of the classroom.

Mary Ellen took her time walking up to the desk where her business/econ teacher sat grading their tests.

Esperanza didn’t even look up at Mary Ellen. “You are looking a little pale. When is the last time you had sex?” She looked up at the teen.

Mary Ellen blushed. “That...That’s none of your business, Esper!” she said.

“Ms. Roman,” Esper reminded, but then waved it away. “Esper is fine when we’re not in class and discussing this,” she amended. “And it is my business. It’s been over two weeks. You are getting sick again. And I asked Sheldon, and he hasn’t fucked you again.”

Mary Ellen shifted uncomfortably. “Could you...not make it sound so...crass?”

Esperanza sighed and put her paperwork aside. “Fine. For your delicate sensibilities. You need to have sex,” Esper emphasized. “You need that energy. Do you want to end up in a coma again, eating yourself from the inside?”

Mary Ellen looked away, worrying her lower lip. “No… I just...I really like Reihan, and I...I don’t want to mess things up with him. And Sheldon...I mean, he’s a nerd, and I guess he’s not bad, but...he’s also Reihan’s roommate.”

“Let me worry about Sheldon, Mary Ellen. But you need him. Let me set aside a discrete room where you and Sheldon can go,” she said. “Or keep a standing hotel reservation for you. No one will have to know.”

“That isn’t fair to Sheldon.”

Esperanza sighed and rubbed her eyes. “You and your sister,” she murmured. “It’s just sex, Mary Ellen. “It means only as much as you put into it. Think of this as transaction. You are paying for services -- well, I am paying.”

“So you fuck Sheldon!” Mary Ellen snapped.

Esper gave Mary Ellen a level look.

“Sorry,” Mary Ellen muttered, lowering her gaze. “I just...there has to be another solution.”

Esperanza sat and thought for a moment. “I may have some...other options for you. They will be riskier,” she admitted.

Mary Ellen perked up. “I’m willing to try!”

“Fine. Meet me in the garage tonight at nine.”
