Together was maybe a misnomer. Harrow stayed late to practice, and I lingered to watch the way she moved. The first time I stayed, I told myself it was just because her technical skill fascinated me. By the fourth late Tuesday, I’d stopped lying to myself.
Gideon Nav swears off martial arts after her last concussion. Her coworker/on-and-off FWB Camilla Hect strongarms her into trying an adult gymnastics club at the local rec center. She only keeps going because the hot Saturday coach Abigail Pent always compliments her.
But when Gideon wears the wrong shirt to class, wraps it around the bar, and accidentally rips it off, Harrow Nova (the other, scarier coach) has harsh words for her. Gideon goes home with a newfound erotic humiliation daydream of Harrow coaching her physical form in the sack.
Camilla is completely unhelpful in processing any of this.
I (25F) have a crush on my tiny, terrifying rec gymnastics coach (34F). AITA?

What matters is that the soft couches and chairs muffle the clink of ceramic and the incessant chatter, preventing the atmosphere from overwhelming her. The lights are dim, Harrow can get a steamed milk, and she and her study partner can spread their eight hundred textbooks out over the corner booth and make serious progress on their project for ARCH 309, Archaeological Science.
After a K-12 career plagued by Gideon Nav’s absurd and insulting chivalry, Harrowhark Nonagesimus goes to college, looking forward to a future forever free of redheaded menaces. She’s got a freshly declared major, a study partner almost as smart as she is, and a new favorite coffee shop that offers menu items she can actually consume.
Her optimism lasts until Palamedes Sextus holds their group project hostage, forcing her to attend a rugby game as his moral support. There, on the pitch, muddy and bloody and beaming, Gideon Nav scores a try. And then-- to compound the indignity-- Palamedes drags her to the drink-up afterward.
For the first time in her life, Harrow finds herself enmeshed in a friend group-- and even worse, that friend group includes Gideon Nav.
