This is a true story of seven strangers picked to
live in a house, work together and have their lives taped. To find out
what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real. The
Kurt stepped off the plane in Washington D.C. ready to embark on a new journey in his life. Finn, his brother, and Blaine, his boyfriend had both insisted he send in his audition tape.
Kurt wasn't against
reality TV he just thought if he ever did a show it'd be more like
Project Runway or the first edition of The Bachelor with gay men. After
he thought more about it he realized he didn't need The Bachelor he had
Blaine and after the way they treated Mondo there was no way he'd go on
Project Runway. So here he was about to be on the Real World and live
with six strangers. He figured if he could live with Finn he could live
Kurt knew he was supposed to meet one of his housemates and ride to their new home together. Soon Kurt saw a beautiful blonde waiting by the baggage claim. He rushed toward her and held out his hand and she took it.
“Quinn, nice to meet you.”
“Same here. Where are you from?”
“Greenwich, Connecticut. What about you?”
“San Francisco. I'm so excited. Are you a student?”
“Yes, in real estate. What do you think the other roommates will be like?”
“I don't know. Hopefully there is nobody horrible.”
Kurt and Quinn were the first to arrive. They toured the house and were shocked at every turn. There was a full kitchen, which Kurt was excited about, three bedrooms, a large community shower with seven shower stalls and seven sinks complete with vanities. There was a dining room, a living room, a phone room and outside there was a full size swimming pool, hot tub and cabana. Quinn was standing in the middle of the living room with shock and awe on her face.
“Do you want to pick rooms now or wait until everyone gets here?”
“I think we should wait. I think we should have dinner together tonight. I'll cook.”
“Kurt, if you're telling me that you know how to use that kitchen I will kiss you.”
“You should probably pucker up,” Quinn squealed, clapped her hands and kissed Kurt on the cheek. He headed to the kitchen to start on dinner while Quinn went to enjoy the pool.
Sam got off his plane in Washington D.C. with two things on his mind.
Getting away from Tennessee and girls. He was here without his wing-man
so he was obligated to get enough for him and his best friend. Mercedes
was ready. She had always loved meeting new people and making friends.
She was going to miss her best friend Santana and she hoped she could
find a good friend in the house. The odds were in her favor with six
other people around. Mercedes was waiting at baggage claim when she
heard a deep voice with a southern accent behind her, “Please, tell me that you are one of my new roommates.”
Mercedes turned and was instantly mesmerized by a pair of brilliant green eyes. Her gaze traveled lower until she saw the best set of lips ever given to a white boy. Without being obvious she checked out the rest of him. She was very impressed.
“I am, my name is Mercedes.”
“I'm Sam. It's a pleasure to meet you. I'm really excited that you're one of the roommates.”
“I was terrified there wouldn't be any beautiful women in the house. I'm not worried now.” Mercedes looked at him closely to see if he was being serious. Boys back home who looked like him didn't usually flirt with her. Actually there were no boys like him in Detroit.
“Glad I could ease your fear. Let's get a cab.”
Sam smiled at Mercedes and grabbed her bag. He carried his and hers while she hailed a cab. Sam was blown away by how beautiful Mercedes was those eyes, those lips and when she walked in front of him and he saw that ass he sent up a prayer of thanks. He sat very close to Mercedes in the cab.
“What do I have to do to get you to share a room with me?” Mercedes tried to pretend like she wasn't surprised at the turn the conversation had taken.
“We should wait until we meet everyone. There could be a girl prettier than me and if we're already roomies you might miss your chance.”
“More beautiful than you? Never happen,” Sam laughed as Mercedes rolled her eyes but settled comfortably against his side. When Sam and Mercedes got to the house Sam opened the door and followed Mercedes inside. They followed the smell of something delicious coming from the kitchen. Standing at the stove was the most impeccably dressed man Mercedes had ever seen. He put his spoon down and walked up to the two of them hand outstretched.
“I'm Kurt from San Francisco,” Mercedes shook his hand enthusiastically.
“I'm Mercedes from Detroit. That's Sam from I don't know where actually but judging from the accent I'd say the South.”
“I'm from Memphis. It's nice to meet you Kurt. You here by yourself?”
“No, I'll go get Quinn,” Kurt darted from the kitchen out the back door. He returned a few minutes later with a gorgeous blonde in the tiniest bikini ever made. Mercedes didn't want to judge but she saw the predatory gleam in Quinn's eyes when she spotted Sam. She watched him step forward all Southern charm and sweetness. Mercedes didn't want to make a bad impression, she stuck her hand out to the blonde.
“Hi, I'm Quinn,” her smile was genuine and Mercedes recognized it as a smile from a girl that thought she had no competition. Mercedes returned her smile. She glanced over at Kurt who was eying her interaction with Quinn with interest. Mercedes decided in that instant that she and Kurt were going to be great friends.
“Quinn, why don't you show Sam and Mercedes the house while we wait
for everyone else,” Quinn nodded her head slid her arm into Sam's and
left the kitchen. Mercedes followed them out with a brief look in Kurt's
direction. She was pleased to see him rolling his eyes.
Quinn showed them the three bedrooms, the bathroom, the dining room, the living room, the phone room and the pool. At the end of the tour Quinn turned to Sam asking him to join her in the pool. Sensing she was not included in the invitation Mercedes excused herself to go help Kurt in the kitchen. When she joined Kurt in the kitchen he was talking to two more people.
“This is Mercedes,” Kurt pointed to her as she entered the kitchen.
The girl turned to her and held out her hand, “I'm Tina. This is Mike. We're from San Antonio.” Mercedes looked at her with confusion.
“You two know each other?”
“Yeah, Tina and I have been best friends for years,” Tina said.
Mercedes watched Tina's face fall as Mike called her his best friend. Mercedes reached out and squeezed her hand and offered her a smile. Mercedes led Tina and Mike on a tour. They left Mike by the pool and rejoined Kurt in the kitchen.
“Hey, ladies. Dinner is almost ready. We're waiting for our final roommate and then we can eat," Kurt said as he went to the cabinet and got out three wine glasses, he retrieved a bottle of white wine from the refrigerator and poured them each a glass.
“Tina, it's to soon to ask but I can't help myself. What's the deal with you and Mike?” Mercedes asked.
Tina took a sip from her glass, “You heard him, we're best friends.” Mercedes and Kurt shared a look before Mercedes spoke.
“Do you want to just be friends?” Tina drained her glass and shook her head negatively. Kurt refilled her glass and patted her on the hand.
“Don't worry, Tina. Mercedes and I will help you," Kurt said as Mercedes nodded
her head and held up her glass. The other two clinked her glass and a
friendship was born.
While they were in the kitchen their third roommate showed up. She looked around the house before looking for her new roommates. Rachel wasn't really the kind of girl who made friends easily. She had no illusions that this situation was going to change that. She was used to people being intimidated by her talent. She was prepared to be hated it was her lot in life. She was dismayed when she entered the kitchen and found three of her roommates laughing over wine.
“Oh, hi. You're finally here! I'm Kurt from San Francisco. That's Tina from San Antonio and Mercedes from Detroit,” Kurt said while pouring himself another glass of wine.
“I'm Rachel from New York. It's nice to meet you. Where's everyone else?” Rachel asked. Kurt stood and began gathering plates. He handed them to Tina and Mercedes took glasses into the dining room.
“They're out by the pool. Come. I'll introduce you," he said. When Kurt stepped outside he observed that Quinn had wasted no time laying her claim to Sam. He wondered how Mercedes would feel about that. “Everybody! This is Rachel. She's our newest roommate. Rachel, the blonde with the lips is Sam from Memphis, the Asian with abs is Mike and Quinn is the other blonde." Rachel smiled at them.
“It's nice to meet you all,” Rachel said.
Kurt turned back to the group before he went inside, “Come and eat. Then we can pick rooms because I don't know about you
guys but I'd like to go out tonight.”
Sam and Mike were halfway across
the yard when Kurt mentioned food. Quinn and Rachel walked in together
both girls sizing up the other. Quinn not seeing Rachel as competition
immediately decided to befriend her. Rachel didn't trust girls,
especially girls who looked like Quinn.
She decided to keep her close to keep an eye on her. The seven roommates sat around the table having finished all the fettuccine alfredo Kurt had fixed for dinner. Before anyone could say anything about room assignments Kurt claimed his.
“I would like the room with three beds. And I'd like Tina and Mercedes to room with me,” Kurt announced. Sam looked across the table at Mercedes and smiled. She smiled back and cut her eyes toward Quinn. He shook his head.
“Mike and I will take one of the doubles. No harm no foul,” Sam commented
“Yeah and Rachel and I will share the other,” Quinn said. Mercedes stood and started to clear the table. Sam stood and joined her and the two of them headed to the kitchen. When all of the dishes were loaded Mercedes leaned on the counter and eyed Sam.
“Why'd you decide to room with Mike? I thought you wanted to room with a beautiful girl. That was your chance with Quinn,” she asked Sam.
“I believe I said I wanted to room with you. Kurt stole my roommate and Mike's so we decided to band together,” he explained.
“But I told you a prettier girl would be here and you should go for her.” Sam took a couple steps forward until he was crowding Mercedes space.
“I told you it would never happen. It hasn't, that's why I'm rooming with Mike.” He brushed her hair away from her face and kissed her cheek. He lingered for a moment then left the kitchen. Kurt entered the kitchen a few moments later to find Mercedes still leaning against the counter.
“Come on, Mercy. Stop being dazzled by handsome southern boys,” Kurt said casually. Mercedes laughed and she and Kurt made their way to their new bedroom to get settled in.
This is better than I could have possibly imagined. None of these girls are close to competition. I didn't really think they would be but you never know. And Sam is amazing. He's gorgeous and sweet. We will be perfect together. I know he thinks so to. It's to bad I'm stuck rooming with that Rachel girl, but I can make it work for me.
Mercedes and Tina are flawless. I never dreamed that I'd form my own fabulous crew on the first day. Sam and Mike are delicious, I'm happy with Blaine but I'm not blind. Rachel is a difficult one to get a grip on, maybe it'll be easier when we've been here longer. Quinn on the other hand, classic queen bitch. Can't wait to see how she and Mercedes get along, especially when it comes to Sam. This is going to be the best time of my life.
