High school teacher Resa Davenport has been friends with Principal Tom Brent since the fifth grade. He dated her closest friends, even married and divorced one of them, and he was her shoulder when her husband passed away in his thirties. Now, she's ready to open her heart again, and a recurring dream about a stirring kiss keeps pointing her compass toward Tom. However, she lacks the courage to risk their friendship. Today she may find that courage. Tom is present in her fifth period class to conduct a teacher evaluation when Resa intercepts a note being passed between two students. There's a poem in the note, which incites a discussion of what a "crush" really is, and that short interchange might be the catalyst to push Resa's dreams into reality.
