Michelle I skipped school this week. The fear of Thomas trying to find me kept me locked in my room, but tonight I'm at a place where that guy isn't invited: the party at the frathouse. I'm standing in a long line with countless pretty women. They are all wearing dresses, high heels, and earrings. Beautiful people. It makes me anxious about my own outfit watching them. Should I have worn something different than a cardigan? Is it weird that I came with comfortable, snug clothing? Even my sweatpants are pretty loose. Not that I have many clothes to choose from. I'm not rich, and I'm sure I can have fun even if I'm not looking all bling-bling. I washed my hair before coming here, though, and now a brown braid hangs over the right side of my collarbone. I feel pretty. Will Maddox think that too? I blink up at the house. Music is playing, and people are already loud on the balcony. Everyone seems to have fun, but I can't relax. I still haven't made up with Maddox, and he has been
MaddoxIt seems I know very little about Michelle Henriksson. I pegged her for a withdrawn girl without much experience, and forgive me for saying this, but I didn't think she was very popular with guys. She wears cardigans like it's her religion and can barely talk without stammering. Michelle is shy, intelligent, and kind, and although those are great qualities, college men only seem to care about sex. And that is the dilemma because Michelle is pure girlfriend material. That's why the guys aren't looking at her twice—you can already tell by a first glance what this girl is about.Michelle is cute and delicate, and I stamped her as innocent. I also took for granted that I wouldn't have much competition in the romantic field, but it seems I was mistaken. Another quarterback, Thomas Hennington, shoves his tongue down Michelle's throat as if his life depends on it. They are by the couch, Thomas's humongous body leaning down to eat at Michelle's face.People are cheering them on too.
Michelle Despite the hurting in my heart and the images of Thomas Hennington haunting my brain, I can't help but let my gaze slide over to Maddox. He is calmly driving his black BMW, eyes on the road. He beat up Thomas so easily. I know violence isn't the answer to most of the earth's questions, yet my blood pumps faster seeing his flexing biceps as he turns the steering wheel. Holy shit. I try not to stare at Maddox even though he is focusing on driving, afraid that when he does glance down, he will find my eyes molesting his front side. I can't believe there is an outline of his pecs. I also can't believe how incredible this guy's body is. His tanned arms have a light smattering of hair, and the color of his skin is a beautiful contrast to his white t-shirt. The sandy hair is fixed tonight, though a bit on the wild side after he got physical. "You're staring." I almost choke at the tone of his voice. Maddox is still looking out the window, not even glancing my way. Still,
Maddox My head is in the gutter. I prepared a bubble bath for Michelle. Went all out on the soap and rosepetals and shit. I felt silly for doing it, but it was worth it once I saw her smile. Michelle looked close to hugging me but instead just thanked me for setting up the room. She then went inside, and the bathroom door clicked closed. I took Michelle's caution as a clear message: I want nothing physical coming from you. So maybe I should just apologize to her tomorrow and say nothing about feelings and shit? My head spins. I'm standing in the shower on the bottom floor, and hot water sluices off my body. I'm overthinking things, but soon my mind wanders to Michelle naked in that tub. Naturally, my hand strays south of the border, and I grab my cock, and lightly squeeze it with my right hand. Before I know it, I picture Michelle naked. Smooth skin, innocent eyes, and those pink lips around my cock. I imagine her trying to take it all but ending up choking on it, down on her
Michelle Maddox's legs are lazily thrown over the table in the library. He is paying the girls checking him out no attention. My eyes casually travel to the hyenas staring at him out from across the library, and I grimace when they get up from their chairs. They are probably about to head for another stroll. The two girls have passed our table five times, giggling to each other whenever Maddox would glance up at them. Too bad for them that the football player probably doesn't even remember their faces. Because let's face it: Maddox can't even memorize that it's Norway and not Sweden we are going to hold a presentation about. "Let me get this straight: you want me to hold most of the presentation and do the talking?" Maddox's voice brings my attention to him. Less than a month ago, I was terrified of him, and although his blue eyes are still harsh, I don't shudder out of fear. It's my nerves and the fact that I like him. Having all of his attention, I'm sure, would have the
MichelleI open the door with my elbow and carry the pizzas Maddox bought inside the kitchen. Maddox is still by the car, probably picking up all the bags of food he got me. He is sweet, and I waltz into the kitchen wearing a smile. I put down the boxes on the table and begin searching for a knife. I hear footsteps and expect to find Maddox behind me, but its Zendra and her latest conquer, Henrik. "Oh, you got me a pizza?" Zendra opens the first box and sends me an evil smile. She is definitely planning on stealing one of the boxes. I straighten my shoulders, and for once in my life, I speak up. "Uh, that pizza isn't for you.""But you got two of them?" Zendra shrugs. "I also don't think you need to eat two of them, and I'm hungry. So thank you for the—""That pizza is mine."Zendra falls silent, and her eyes almost pop up from their sockets when Maddox strolls into the kitchen. He walks toward the pizza boxes and glares at both Zendra and Henrik. Immediately, Henrik steps out of
Michelle I have the strongest urge to pee when I wake up the following day. I had straight to the bathroom, groaning at this sudden nausea taking over my senses. Did I stand up too fast? Whatever. I'm not in a good mood. My breasts are sensitive too, which can only mean my period is on its way. But I'm not precisely bleeding. I find it peculiar since I could have sworn my period should have been here three days ago. There are knocks on the bathroom door, and soon, Ciara's voice comes from the other side of the door. "Michelle—" "The bathroom is occupied!" I yell, interrupting Ciara, which is unlike me, but I'm trying to focus. I'm unsure why, but peeing seems a bit harder this morning. "Chill out!" Ciara snorts at me. It's the first time I've heard her laugh at something I've said. "I'm just knocking to let you know that your boyfriend is waiting outside with his car." Maddox is here to pick me up? Embarrassed beyond belief, I blush. To think I yell at Ciara the moment she a
Maddox Being in love and admitting it is life-changing. I'm happier, and it feels like a rock has been lifted off my chest. Breathing is easier. I'm sweaty from running around on the field all day. Exhausted. Limbs shaking. Legs begging for a rest. It's like every other day, but there is a difference—food isn't on my mind. Michelle is. She is standing up. I'm happy to see her, thrilled she stayed here for the entire duration of the practice. Michelle is amazing. She saw Jason tackle me, and the idiot took it too far. I ended up eating the dirt on the ground. And I can see the concern in Michelle's eyebrows as I approach. "Bet you're going to cry to your girlfriend now," Jason says from behind me when I take off my helmet. "Are you going to shed a couple of crocodile tears to get what you want?" Michelle is by my side instantly, ignoring Jason and instead focusing on me. A crease has formed between her eyebrows. "Did you hurt yourself? Any area that you want me to look at?"
