Finn arrive at the Lima Bean faster than he’d expected, despite the nagging feeling in his stomach that this was out of bounds. He had nothing but innocent intentions in mind, but over the past few years, teaching had become a lot stricter. There were limits to what you were allowed to do with students (even physical contact was frowned upon), and going to get a coffee with a student… it was just a little risky.
