I lowered my head, bit my lip, feeling so embarrassed. Fine, Roy and I had grown close in the last few weeks, he came here often, we chatted a lot more. But did that mean he should come here without telling me?
This was so embarrassing.
Rolling my fingers into a fist, I raised my neck to look at them. Barb had a crazy smile on her lips, and she winked at me. The moment I looked away, my eyes caught Virg standing by the threshold of the door which led to the corridor.
"Oh. I forgot to tell you that I poked you because I saw Roy coming," she uttered. Saying that, she walked back in.
What was wrong with my friends?
"You know what?" Barb smirked. She leaned forward, pinched my cheek. "Maybe we should leave you both. Bella and I need to catch up with something."
"True," Bella affirmed, and winked too.
Okay, this was getting too annoying for me. I wasn't the type of lady who appreciated guys so much, so why the heck would they both be angry just because they wanted to go on a date with me? Was I Amy Walter, or Kathleen Carl? What was going on?"Yeah." Roy stepped closer to Sean, and that made me step backwards. Now, they were both gazing at each other. And since they were about the same height, they seemed like some wrestlers who were in the ring.Sean sighed. I could tell he was getting flustered. One thing I knew about him was, he never liked anyone to get on his nerves. When we had been dating, I had never dared to go to him when his mood was unstable. I would say he was short tempered.So, what if Roy was short tempered as well? That meant this was a war between two Goliaths. Absolutely. Crazy."Hey, guys." I gauged an anxious laughter, stood in between them. First, I tu
"Just ask Bella to do it!" I whined at Barb over the phone. I had only left my dorm about an hour and thirty minutes ago, but she had called about five hundred times already. She was complaining about Virginia not wanting to cook breakfast. How was that even my problem?!"Oh, so you're supporting Virg? Seriously?!" She cried.I slapped my palm against my forehead, sighed hard. "Jeez, girl, you could be annoying sometimes. I'm only giving my opinion. You can't keep calling me for little things like this. It's quite annoying.""Oh, so now, I'm the annoying one?" She sounded angry."Why can't—""Fine! Just get out. I'll sort it out myself. And till you return, I won't call you," she uttered."Barb, you've got to—""Bye!" And then, she hung up.I rolled my eyes, and stepped into the por
I had never, ever been to a dance party before. Going to the school dance was a big deal to me. I worked at a club, but who would ever know I never paid attention to anything that went on in there? All I did was to serve drinks, think about the next step I'd take in my life, worry about one thing or the other. But this time around, I was gonna be a guest at the dance. I wasn't gonna work there!"What am I gonna wear?" I threw my back into the bed, covered my face with a pillow. "This is awkward. Renee at a party?"I heard Virginia chuckle, and that made me sit up. "It's not funny!" I cried at her, frowning gently. "I mean, what if I end up being embarrassed? And to worsen it all, I'm going on a date with that dude. I'm literally gonna be the talk of the school. A date with Roy? Ah, creepy!""Is it?" Bella scoffed. Turning to her, I noticed how indifferent she looked. "Have you forgotten I once dated Jason? The famous mor
"See you later," I added, and hung up my phone call.Walking to the library, I took in a deep breath, feeling weird. For some reason, these last few days, I was wanting to dress enticing enough for Roy. To be honest, after he had deeply expressed his feelings that night, I wasn't feeling too comfortable around him. When he stared at me, it made me feel like an infatuated teenager. So weird.I took a last glance at my cinched waist top, denim pencil jean trouser, and canvas shoe. Of course, I was pretty.Stepping in, I scanned my eyes through the place in search of Roy. He had told me he would stand close to the door, so where the heck was he now?"Pretty." He startled me when he hit his arm against mine."Naughty boy." I slapped his back, glared up at him.He only chuckled, and took my hand, pulling me somewhere.&nb
After a long stare, I chuckled. He was obviously joking. Sleepover? With a boy?My chuckle turned into a crazy laughter, my arms shaking as a result of it. In fact, I didn't know when I slapped his chest."What a joker you are," I commented."Joker?" He sounded puzzled.I stopped laughing, took a deep sigh before gazing at him. "I didn't know you were this funny. A sleepover?""Um, yep?" He twitched an eyebrow. "Do you think I'm joking? Is that a big deal?""Wait, wait." I lingered my hands in the air, chuckled again. "So, you want a sleepover? I mean, that's crazy.""Not crazy for me." He poked my arm. "I just want us to spend more time together. I miss you all the time."I snorted, and pulled him back to our desk. Ensuring we were both seated, I cleared my throat, scrutinizing him.
I balled my fingers into a fist, threw my back against my soft bed. Speaking of stupid, I was definitely stupid tonight. I knew that, but I was helpless.After I had left school, Roy had called me three times, but I hadn't answered his calls, still being mad at him for something he knew nothing about. Was I really the crazy one here?Besides my attitude towards Roy, I had also given my roomies some attitude. When I had walked into the room, I had a stern look on. In fact, my boss had given me the night off when she had sensed something was wrong with me tonight.Upset, I threw a pillow over my face, cried in it. What would Roy think of me now? I was making him suffer for the things that had happened to me in the past. This wasn't nice at all. This was Sean's fault! Ah!"What the heck is wrong with you?" Bella questioned. Hearing her voice, I threw the pillow off my head, sat up stra
My day was so, so bad.Waking up in the morning, the first thing that had ruined my mood was the fact that my roomies weren't willing to speak with me. But since Virg was the mature one, she had only greeted me, but had done or said nothing further. I guessed they were upset that I had behaved crazily towards them last night.To worsen all this, I hadn't seen Roy all day. What if he had decided to give up on me? Or what if that Kathleen had made him leave me? So upsetting.I heaved a sigh, turned around to take my leave. It was six already, so I had to leave for work. I only hoped my boss wouldn't ask me to take the night off for a second time."You're so funny, Roy," I heard someone say that from behind me. Oh, shit, Roy? Plus, a familiar voice? Was that—Slowly, I spun around. And, seeing Roy and Kathleen standing by the other side of the hallway, I curl
The disturbing sound of the bedside alarm pulled me from my sleep. I was so, so tired, but I had to wake up as soon as possible. Good for me, today's class was only for two hours since we were close to the end of the semester."Oh, goodness," I said that as I yawned. Sitting up, I rubbed my hands against my eyes, the unpleasant smell of my mouth causing my nose to scrunch. Violently scratching my scalp, I slowly opened my eyes. And seeing Virg, I gawked.What? She was wearing a red wig? The nerd?"Virginia?" I was really shocked.She glimpsed at me, and resumed staring at her reflection in the mirror. "What? Why are you staring at me that way?""You're wearing a red wig?" I hopped from my bed, sauntered to her.Reaching her, she grumbled, and turned around to face me. "I knew you'd say something about this. Is it a crime to be on red h
