Emelia POVI have been awake for the past hour getting ready for my date with Keegan. I decided to dress casually in my black ripped jeans, sneakers, and a tank top with minimal makeup. I only have a few minutes until Keegan arrives.I hear a knock on the door, so I leave the bathroom to open it for Keegan."Wow, you look beautiful. Are you ready to leave?""Yes, I just need to go get my purse and tell Ann I'm leaving. I'll be right back."I walk towards my closet to get my purse and a jacket."Ann I'm leaving. I don't know what time I'm going to be back home.""Have fun. I want details once you get back. Love you."I walk towards Keegan and out of the apartment.We pull up next to the diner and Keegan rushes towards the passenger side of his car. He opens the car door for me and can't help to smile. He is such a gentleman. The diner looks so homey. We take a seat in a booth at the back of the diner and an older looking lady comes towards us."Keegan my dear. Haven't seen you in a while and please tell me who this lovely young lady is.""I have been busy getting ready for university. This is Emelia she started at the restaurant yesterday Aunt Karen.""What can I get you, Emelia? I know you will have your usual Keegan." She starts writing down what I assume is Keegan's order. How many times has he been here that he already has a usual order?"I will have the chocolate waffles with a coffee please."The lady scurries off to the counter and me and Keegan are alone again."So let's play 21 questions. You may start." This is the best way to get to know someone. I hope Keegan doesn't mind."That's a good idea Em. Where are you from?""I'm from Napervill, born and bred. And you?"I'm from Pennsylvania. I have lived here all my life. So what's your favorite color?""Keegan you know you can ask better questions than that. I'll answer it anyway my favorite color is purple. So uncle Rave is your uncle?"Aunt Karen comes back with our order before Keegan can answer. His order is a big hamburger with fries and a coke."Yes, he is my uncle I live with him for a long time now. My parents died when I was young. That's all you need to know please don't ask me again." I hear the sadness in his voice. I decide to drop the subject. I don't want to ruin the first date I have ever been on."You still need to ask me a question.""So what do you like to do in your free time?""I love to read books. I'm a big romantic at heart. What about you?"Keegan thinks for a while before he answers."I love to go to the gym and work out. I also love to hang with my friends.""That is why you look so hot." Keegan looks at me with a smirk on his lips."You think I look hot?""Did I say that out loud?" I feel a blush sneaking up my cheeks. I need to keep my thoughts to myself sometimes."Yes you did and there is no going back."We finish our food while we talk more. I found out so much about him. I'm on my third cup of coffee."I don't want to sound rude, but we have to go home otherwise we are going to be late."Keegan looks so guilty and I check my phone to see what the time is and I see it's already 1 pm."O my goodness. Is that the time?"We drive in complete silence and it's not awkward. Keegan drops me in front of the dorm."I hope we can do this again Em. I had so much fun.""Me too Keegan. I will see you later at work."I walk away and I feel happy. Why didn't my parents ever let me date? I walk into the room and I see Ann on her bed."Em, you back I need to speak to you.""Ann what wrong? You sound weird.""Em I'm moving but before you worry I'm not moving far. My dad bought me an apartment not far from the university. I don't know if I should be happy or angry. I want you to move with me but if you don't want to I understand.""Ann looks at me. I will move with you into the apartment but only if you promise that I can help with bills. I will always be with you no matter what. So when are we moving? We need to call the administration office, so we can cancel our dorm room.""I thought we can move this weekend since you don't work on weekends. That way we can get everything ready. My dad also gave me some money so that I can decorate the whole apartment.""We can go tomorrow morning to do some shopping. We first need to go look at the apartment and make a list of everything we will need.""I will go and look at the apartment while you work.""Yes, work I almost forgot. Let me get ready for work. I will fill you in on the date tomorrow while we go shopping."An hour later I arrive at work. Luckily I am half an hour early. I greet everyone and go straight to uncle Rave's office. I knock and walk-in. Inside there is uncle Rave and a younger guy."I'm so sorry I'm intruding.""Now its fine Emelia this is Josh he is the one that worked here before you."I smile at Josh. He looks sick. He has black circles under his eyes, and he is so thin."Nice to meet you, Emelia. I glad uncle Rave found someone so fast. I know I have let him down." I look confused between Josh and uncle Rave. I see uncle Rave's eyes turning softer."Josh you didn't let me down. You have worked for me for 2 years. Nobody predicted that cancer will come back and spread.""I am so sorry to hear that Josh. I'm just here to give you my information uncle Rave. It was nice to meet you, Josh."I walk out of the office and send up a prayer. I hope Josh will make it. I go to the locker room to put away my stuff.7hours later and my feet hurt so much. It's the end of my shift. Uncle Rave already called me into the office, so I have a contract. I need to get to bed I'm exhausted. I had a difficult customer today. He sends his food back 3 times because it was too cold. I mean if you are going to talk for half an hour before you eat you better expect your food is going to be cold. His date told me she is sorry and threw her drink at him telling him he was rude and never contact her again. That was the funniest ever.I walk into our dorm room and see Ann is already asleep. I change as quietly as I possibly can and climb into bed. I'm so tired fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow.
Emelia POVI've woken from my sleep thanks to Ann that is jumping on my bed."Come on sleepy head time to wake up. Man, you sleep like the dead. Wake up please we need to leave, so we can do some shopping before you need to leave for work.""I'm up I promise. So did you make a list?""Yes miss sleepy head. I made the list and before you ask I will stop at star bucks on the way to get us some coffee.""Thank you let me get dressed." It takes me 30min to brush my teeth comb my hair and get dressed. We leave and stop at star bucks. I wait in the car so Ann can run in otherwise we won't finish today. We drive towards furniture Mecca. I know we need beds and kitchenware."Good morning ladies how can I help you.""Well, we are here to shop. We have a whole apartment to decorate to we will tell what we need and you just need to deliver it at the apartment. I
Emelia POVI'm so happy the weekend is finally here. We are almost done with the painting of the walls. All that is left is the rooms. Ann and I are already at the apartment. We have been busy from 6am this morning. Yesterday was so fun. I don't know how we have gotten this far since we had about 3 paint wars. Hopefully, we are done by Sunday. Monday the semester starts then we will be really busy."What time does lover boy arrive" Ann decided that will be Keegan's new nickname. Why I don't really now. I don't think he is in love with me. It is still early days. I check my watch to see what time it is and I see it's already 8:30."Keegan will be here at 9am. And please don't call him that once he is here. He said that he will bring a friend along to help us move the furniture. Maybe one of us should do a breakfast run. Neither of us has had any food this morning.""Good call I will go and
Emelia POVMonday morning and the weekend is over. Luckily we can both focus on the start of the semester. I haven't spoken to Keegan since Saturday and maybe that is for the best. I need to get my head wrapped around the fact that it's only been a week, and he already asked me out.Currently, I'm waiting in the car on Ann. She is going to make us late on the first day. I hate being late. I love learning while Ann would probably party her life away. That's how it's always been. Ann trying to bring me out of my shell and me, trying to get Ann to be more serious."Don't tell me you're still thinking about lover boy. You know what you did what's the best for both of you. It is way too early to think of dating if you only know each other for a week. Go on a few more dates and then decide if you
Emelia POVIt's the weekend already. This week went by better than expected. After the miss hap with my parents, I must say the rest of my problems seem so small. Keegan and I decided on an early dinner and a movie so now I'm just trying to do my assignments before we go. Things have also been going better with Keegan. He has opened more up to me and for that I'm grateful."Em, how far are you?""I still have two assignments to finish. Why?" I look up from my computer to see Ann standing in my doorway. We decided that no matter what the time of night we need to just sit together and talk about our day so we don't lose sight of our friendship.
Emelia POVI wake up before Ann this morning and that is so unlike Ann. It's already 9 am. I go into the kitchen to make us some coffee. I knocked on Ann's door but nobody answers. I walk in and see her bed looks like nobody has slept in it last night. I go into my room and search for my phone and that's when I hear Ann trying to sneak in. I go stand in the hall and burst out laughing. Ann looks up."Jeez Em you scared the hell out of me. I thought you will still be asleep. Ok, I hoped you will be asleep." She starts laughing too."Well guess you are doing the walk of shame this morning since you are still in yesterday's clothes."

We decided about two days ago that we are going to try the whole relationship thing and so far it's been great. Keegan sends me a morning text and a goodnight text. He is so sweet. I feel like I'm falling just deeper and deeper in love with him. He is everything I hoped for in a guy.Tonight is the announcement of who is becoming the next manager. Uncle Rave asked us about a week ago to write on a piece of paper who we would think is the best for the position and I nominated Amber. I know she has worked the hardest this last month. She deserves the position. I also asked unc
