Asher watches Danny watch his friends. This is the second time that they have hung out with them and he gets the impression that Danny does not really like them.
Not that he really blames him. They can be pretty annoying at times. Hell, sometimes he has a hard time even liking them. Especially Tyler, who he notices that Danny really seems to dislike.
But he never says a word about it. He will talk (kind of) and he laughs at jokes. He answers any questions asked of him and sometimes he asks questions back when they are talking
Dani followed behind Asher as he carried the bags up the stairs to their rooms. Dani was going to get them but he stopped her by grabbing them before she could. That leaves her to carry the pizza that they bought while they were out, since they knew that they would miss evening meal. Even if they did get back in time, they did not want to waste the time in having to go get it, eat it and then take the plates back. It was easier to just get a pizza that they could eat in the room and not have to leave. “Can we do this in your room tonight?” Asher asks her suddenly and she freezes.
The next day, Dani knows that she really needs to talk to Asher and set everything straight with him. But she can not find him all day. He does not come to eat breakfast with her, or lunch for that matter. She figures that he is probably avoiding her, since he is upset about last night and the new discovery that he thinks he made about himself. He thinks that he is gay. He is not actually gay for her but he does not know that. It is a complicated situation, but if she could just talk to him then she could fix it and make it all better. But in order to talk to him, she would have to be able to find him and that is apparently far easier said than done.
Dani spends a restless night tossing and turning as she replays his parting words in her mind. She was telling him the truth when she told him that she had never intended to hurt anyone with her charade. She had not seen the harm in it, but she also probably had not given it the thought that it deserved. She had merely thought that she was just pretending to be a guy but that no one would find out. In her despertion to flee the embarrassment looming ahead of her in New York, she had not fully thought through the repercussions of her actions. She did not take into account that she would be lying to literally everyone.
Asher slams the door behind him and falls on his bed angrily. God, what is it about that boy, no- girl.. what is it about that girl that requires her to drive him crazy? She is fucking with his mind. First he spends two weeks with her, day in and day out, thinking that she was a boy. Thinking that this weird chemistry and this sexual attraction that he felt was towards a boy. He wrestled with himself for days on in, struggling with his sexuality. He knew that he felt this out pull towards Danny, the new kid, which made him think that he was gay. Something that he truly did not want to be. Not because there was anything wrong with being gay. But he saw how his fa
Dani got the impression that he did not want to hear anything that she had to say as she waited for him to give her even a hint that she would listen to him. When he continued to ignore her in favor of looking up at the ceiling, she crosses her arms over her chest with huff of annoyance. “Okay, are you going to stop being an ass and listen or should I just go back to my room?” Dani asks, pulling the hat off of her head to let her hair loose. She had put it and the sweatpants on before she rushed across the hall to talk to him. She had not wanted to run the risk of anyone seeing her. But now she was regretting her decisio
“That's why.” Was that suppose to answer her questions? Because it did not. She still does not understand what is going on between them. He kissed her and then said “That's why.” like that was suppose mean something to her. Does that mean that he wants some type of relationship with her? That would explain the Eddy questions but it is so vague that it is open for interpretation. He could have just been kissing her for the fun of it. Which is why she has questions. If he wants something from her, he is going to have to man up, use his big boy words and come right out and say it.
“Dani.” She looks from her plate to meet Asher's eyes. It is just the two of them alone in the dining hall, as everyone else, except for three other students have gone home for the holidays. “In case I forgot to say it earlier.. Happy Thanksgiving.” Asher tells her and she musters up a smile for him. “Ugh, Dani.. please stop.” He sighs. &ld
Later that night when they got back from their date, Asher walked her to her bedroom door, but did not leave her outside. Instead, he preceded her into the room. The moment she closes the door behind them, he is there, pressing her back against the door as he kisses her. He is so close to her that her breasts are smashed against his chest. His arms are on either side of her head with his palms flat against the wood behind her. His lips devour her mouth, as his tongue pushes inside to dance with hers. When her lungs are burning and she needs a breath of air is the only time she considered stopping him. Moving her head away to suck in
