From the very beginning she plotted to become involved with Jim, her new math teacher. She manipulated, lied, conjured up, and did whatever she could in a blind attempt to win Jim’s love. He was her hero. She was indeed a troubled teenager.
Now Jim was a teacher that was so naive as to what was happening. In fact, he was completely blind to the trap that he was falling into. He was oblivious to what would turn out to be his worst nightmare.
When Devon finally told Jim how she felt, she somehow thought that they were going to become an item. He quickly told her that he did not feel the same.
Could Jim have been just too trusting? He was so eager to help her with her so called problems, he overlooked and did not see the cues that Devon was beyond infatuation with him. Could he have been proactive? He had no clue that she was a troubled teenager. I kept saying, “Man wake up, smell the coffee.” He never should have divulged the personal information that he did regarding he might not be teaching for the summer, because his ex-wife was moving out of town. He had no idea Devon had made copies of all his keys which he kept in his drawer at school. He definitely should have questioned and called Devon out when she picked up his daughter without his prior permission. She used every opportunity to catch him off guard. Thankfully one student came forward and reported to the police some of Devon’s scheming.
When Jim told her that he wanted nothing to do with her, she went ballistic.The psychotic side of this troubled teenager really showed it’s ugly face. She falsely accused Jim of rape. It was sad to see him arrested in front of his young innocent daughter. That should never had occur. This should be a message to teachers to be careful of this type of situation with students. This goes for male and female teachers. This spoiled psychotic student only heard and saw what she wanted to.
Thank goodness, Jim was saved by recording he and Devon’s final conversation on his cell phone. His attorney listened, and heard everything. This was the first that he found out Devon had murdered his ex-wife. In an attempt to show her love for him, she took her vehicle and ran the ex-wife down. Devon was oblivious to the hit and run consequences. Devon stated that she was willing to do anything for them to be together and she did just that.
One might wonder where Devon’s parent’s were. Devon’s father was raising her. He was not aware of Devon’s psychotic state. He thought everything was okay between he and his daughter. Had he known, I am sure he would not have hesitated to get help for his daughter. Devon seemingly, wanted more of her father, but did not know how to ask for what she needed.
Consequently Devon was arrested. This story ends showing Devon getting psychiatric help and showing her enticing the psychiatric doctor. Or possibly this was just another one of her daydreams which could feed on her attempt to seduce the psychiatric doctor. It was a story that captured my attention.
