Unseen Things That Do Not Die by The Housekeeper reviews
Her last class with McAvoy is on a Wednesday, and that night, she sits at her computer, cracks her neck back and forth a few times, takes a deep breath and writes an email to him before she can change her mind. She hits send and blows out the breath, hard, then slams her laptop screen down and tells herself to forget about it. Forget it.

It's not planned. But then again she isn't sure what she expected when she agreed to eat those cookies. First on her list had been hearing the rest of his message, and when his request had been that she join him, possibly in the hope that neither of them would remember, she'd thought very little beyond what she wanted to know or what the consequences might reap.
