Premise

Rupert Giles returns to high school! But this time — as a grown man living in a teenage body — Giles will be a student instead of a teacher. At an inner-city Los Angeles school, when a mystical influence is detected and teachers start to go missing, Giles enrolls to investigate. What he finds is more than vampires and demons… something unusual and frightening is happening here. If Giles can get through one day as a student, he’ll have a chance to find out who, what, and where, but high school is still hell.[1]

Love is complicated. For a guy and a girl, both aware the other is keeping secrets, they shouldn’t even consider love.

Roux will finally tell Giles her secrets… or he may have to kill her.
