Eugene Davis......What twins?
'It's been three weeks since Oliver gave me a ride home. Well
that was one hell kind of ride. No one said a word the whole time. That car literally was a jail for someone like me who talks too much. Well what can w-' Luke interrupted her train of thought.
He was elbowing her in her stomach.
"What?" She snapped at him. "I recommend you to be attentive in the class right know. Prof. Davis isn't in a good mood." He whispered to her.
"What are you talking about?" She asked and raised an eyebrow. "Well you see-" Luke was cut off by Oliver's yelling.
"No talking in the class!" Oliver yelled. Everyone gasped at his angry eyes. He never showed any emotions like this.
"Well something is certainly not right with him. He never is this grumpy." Mai whispered back to Luke. Luke nodded.
"If you both don't shut up right now, I will make sure that you won't be able to talk to each other in rest of you lives." Melly told them in a low dangerous voice.
"Yes Mam!" They both answered back immediately.
After the class was over, Oliver was sitting on his chair and his head was resting on his hand. Mai approached and placed her hand on his shoulder and shook him.
"Oliver! Oliver! Are you Ok?" She asked him with concern in her voice.
"I….am fine." He said while taking sharp intakes of breath.
Mai's left eye twitched. "No! You're definitely not Ok."
She walked around him and stood in front of his chair. She lifted
his head and saw that his face was flushed. She placed her hand on his
forehead and gasped.
"Oh my gosh, Oliver! You're burning." She said with worry.
"I am fine. You should go." He replied while jerking away his face from her hold.
"Oh C'mon. Don't behave like a child, will ya?" She said. He shot her a deathly glare.
"I. Am. Not. A. Child." He said through gritted teeth.
"Well you're sure are behaving like one" She said while sweat dropping.
"C'mon. I'll call Lin. Give me his number." She told him.
"He will not be coming. He had….some kind of work?" He said not too sure himself.
Mai sighed and asked, "Do you have a car in the University right now?"
He nodded. "C'mon I'll drive you home. Where do you live?" She asked him.
"No." He said bluntly.
"What the hell? I am trying to be nice with you." She accused him.
"I never asked you to be concerned for me." He said
in a matter-of-factly tone.
"Put your smartness aside for some time and let me help. And if you still insist, I can go to the office and ask for your address. Will you prefer that?" She said knowing that she had won
After a little glaring contest, Oliver gave up and sighed. And Mai gave a winning smile.
"C'mon" She held out her hand and he took it. She placed her one hand on his waist and Oliver's hand was on her shoulder.
'He really is burning like hell.' She really was concerned about him.
They reached Oliver's car and she put him on the back seat of the car and climbed at the driving seat herself. Oliver raised an eyebrow at her and was about to object her driving but Mai beat it to him.
"Before you say anything, I have my driving license." She clarified it to him.
After that, Oliver gave her his address and she drove to his house. She opened the door of his house and went in. She asked where his bed was, took him to the bed, and laid him in there. She told him to get change and went to kitchen.
She came back with a bowl of cold water and a cloth. She knelt down beside the bed and put her hand on his forehead. He was still burning. He was breathing heavily too.
'Idiot! If he was this sick then why did he came to the college today? Him and his damn pride.' She thought.
She placed the wet cloth on his forehead and after every two three minutes soaked it and again placed it on his forehead.
After some time she looked out of the window and saw that it was already night.
"I should get going now. It's getting late." She stood up and
tried to leave the room without making any noise when suddenly a hand gripped her wrist.
She spun on her heels and saw a flushed Oliver sitting on his bed, holding her wrist. When she looked at him carefully his hair was a mess and his upper two buttons were undone. She stared
'Get a grip Mai. Get a grip.' She thought.
"O-Oliver wh-what's wrong?" She stuttered.
"Where are…you going?" He asked her while breathing heavily.
"I am going home" she replied.
"No!" he suddenly said.
"What?" she was seriously confused.
"Please don't leave" He said while locking her eyes with his own. Mai's eyes went wide.
"What are you talking about, Oliver?" She asked him totally shocked.
"Please don't go." He again said but this time he was pleading.
Mai came out of her shock and said with a smile "Ok fine. I won't leave. Why don't you rest now, Oliver?"
Oliver looked at her and said "NO if I sleep now, you will go back to your home." He pleaded.
'Why is he se reluctant to let me go?" she thought. "Don't worry Oliver. I will not go anywhere. I stay here by your side."
Then she did what she also didn't expected. She leaned down and kissed his forehead. She then looked at him and was relieved to know that he was already asleep. She sighed and went out of the room towards the kitchen. She made some coffee and came back to the living room.
Then she heard the front door open. What she saw made her stop dead in her tracks. A boy same looking as Oliver stepped in the house. He spotted Mai and raised an eyebrow that was soon replaced by a warm smile.
"I am Eugene Davis. Who are you?" He said and Mai's eyes went wide.
