Bad Boy introducing himself
“Damn these stairs feel so much all of a sudden,” Ruby whined as we took the stairs up to our room. She was like a lightning bolt when we reached the top of the staircase, keys out and ready to unlock the door. I frowned when she just stood in front of the door with her hand on the door handle. “A second ago you couldn’t wait to get to the room and now you are standing like a statue blocking my way.”
She slowly raised her gaze from the door to look at me. “The doors unlocked.” She told me in a shaky voice.
“Maybe Janelle beat us to it.”
“She was still at the school when we left. She couldn’t have beat us. Maybe if she was a vampire or flash.” I rolled my eyes and pushed her aside and pushed the door open.
I was greeted with a sight of a couple, who were making out on top of Ruby’s bed, the girl was already down to her underwear while the guy was still fully clothed. “We are at the right room, right?” I asked Ruby softly over my shoulder.
Instead of answering me, she shoved me aside to see what was going on in our room. I thought she was going to hyperventilate when her gaze landed on the scene.
“What the heck are you thinking you are doing?!” She demanded, switching on the lights scaring the living shit out of them, as they jumped apart in a flash. This Ruby was a demon when she was mad.
The girl was scrambling for her clothes trying to cover up, while the guy stayed seated on her bed. “You know when you are caught it means you have to leave.” Ruby said in a disgusted tone as she watched the girl getting dressed. She past us her face a shade of red that won’t be going anywhere soon.
“Are you going to get out or are we going to do it ourselves?” I asked the guy, folding my arms as I leaned with my shoulder against the doorway. Ruby huffed in annoyance, when he made no move to leave, she grabbed a pillow and then hit him square in the face with the pillow. He was just surprised as I was as he almost tumbled off her bed. She kept on hitting and cursing until he neared the exit. I moved aside when he stumbled past me, he caught himself and then turned around to look at her. “Where have you been all my life?” He asked her holding, his hand over his heart.
“Definitely not with my legs in the air.” She grumbled shutting the door in his face.
“Well.” I said with a chuckle. “You did absolutely nothing!” She scolded.
“Yeah, well you had everything covered. I was thinking off throwing him out when you decided to hit him with a pink fluffy pillow.”
“He deserved it. I mean how did he even get into our room?” She asked walking over to the door.
“They are horny males, I am sure they picked the locks. They will do anything in their power just to get laid.”
“You are such a virgin.” I said with a chuckle when she threw me with a pillow.
The door opened after a while and Janelle walked in looking out the door before closing it. “Did I miss something?” She asked kicking off her shoes.
“A couple decided to have sex in our room.” I said pulling myself up onto my bed. “And Ruby decided to take matters into her own hands as she chased the guy around with a pink fluffy pillow.” Janelle giggled and then it turned into a full throated laugh.
I lied down on my bed with a smile on my face as Ruby mumbled a few curse words as she got into her bed. “And to think that you believe you have no sparkling personality.” I said making her curse even louder.
I slipped my hand underneath my head and looked at the ceiling still wearing a goofy smile. A small part of her reminded me so much of the girls back home. I pulled my phone out from underneath my pillow and sent them a text and slipped it back underneath. I closed my eyes once Janelle turned off the lights.
Janelle was already gone when we woke up the next morning, something to do with practice and being the first one to hit the showers. All the girls at the dorm was talking about Ruby’s bravery of last night. If she only would open her eyes and realise that she is good enough for any guy out there. People adored her, she was friendly and funny.
“I think the new security system is going to be pink fluffy pillows.” I told her as I waited for her to get her things from her locker. “Haha very funny. You are such a comedian.” She grumbled shutting her locker. “Come on, if you were in my shoes you would have thought it was also funny.”
“Maybe I would have helped you out and not just stood there admiring the scene.” She snorted. “What was not to admire? You actually talking, correction screaming at a guy who was practically half-naked. And good looking.” I emphasised the word good looking. “And was it just me or didn’t I hear you stutter once.” She huffed in frustration before she left me alone by walking away from me.
I decided to get to class like the others. A part of me was relieved when I showed up in time. The other part wanted to test the professor’s limits.
A few of the guys greeted me as I made my way over to my seat. “Heard there was some fun happening at the girl’s dorm last night.” One of the guys said turning around in his seat.
“Something about pillows involved.” The other guys said chuckling.
I just shook my head in amusement while I pulled out my textbook from my bag. “Never mess with a nerd who carries a fluffy pillow as a weapon.” I told them, earning a round of laughter.
“Good morning, class.” The professor greeted when he entered the room. He pushed his glasses back onto his nose when they almost slipped off with all the bags he was carrying.
“I received your first assignments for the first semester.” He said opening one of his carry cases and pulled out a mountain of papers. “This assignment is all about how you as a student can improve our surroundings. Either fixing or cleaning something.” He explained as he handed the papers asking the people in front to send it on to the back.
“The first section is all about your idea and the second section is your practical assessment.” I started reading through the assignment once I received a paper. “The first part of the assignment is only due in a month, the second part is due in 2 months. You might want to start on them as soon as possible.”
Classes went on for about 7 hours before we got dismissed. Everyone was already talking about their ideas while I tried to think of something. If I was back in New Orleans, there was a lot of things I would have written down but being here and not really knowing the area was a little bit tricky.
I decided to go for a walk and try to see if I could find anything that would give me a clue what to do. I stopped at one of the café’s to buy myself some lunch before going back to the dorm.
I was pulling out my earphones from my pocket when the sound of a bike caught my attention. I raised my head and found a sleek Kawasaki Ninja H2. My pace slowed down to a point where I stopped walking to look at this beauty.
I groaned in frustration when the driver lifted the visor from his helmet. “Normally I get moans instead of groans.” The guy said parking his bike next to side.
“You don’t give up easily, do you?” I asked frustrated.
“Not really.” He replied with a shrug. “And all I wanted to do was to offer you a lift when I saw you walking.” He said motioning to the bike he was currently straddling with his powerful legs.
“I don’t take rides from strangers,” I replied probably sounding like a spoiled child.
“I seem to believe that we are passed the whole stranger part.”
“I don’t even know your name,” I said crossing my arms in front of my chest. I felt kind of childish.
“It’s Travis.” He said with a chuckle.
“The dorms are only a few minutes from here.”
“I will make it the best few minutes of your life if you take a ride with me.” He said making it sound so damn naughty. “I mean with the bike of course.” He said with a wink once he realized what he just implied.
“I have been wanting to take a ride on this baby since the release.” His head jerked and he looked at me surprised. “What? You didn’t take me as a biker girl?” I asked amused.
“It is just fun meeting a girl with a sense of style.” He said pulling off his helmet and handing it over to me. He didn’t even try to bother to fix his hair, he got back onto the bike and motioned for me to follow.
I slipped on the helmet and hopped onto the bike with him seated between my legs. I placed my hands on his hips and smiled when he brought the bike to life. The rumbling of the bike ignited the excitement from, inside of me. “You ready?” He yelled over the rumbling of the bike.
“Been ready,” I replied.
He pulled off making me wrap my arms around him more securely. I looked at the passing cars and smiled when all of the colors and objects faded past us in the blink of an eye. I loved the adrenaline pumping through my veins, when he pushed the bike a little bit faster, once he noticed my excitement.
No wonder Camille dropped everything to buy herself a bike. I might just consider it.
My excitement died a little when the dorm came into view. He parked the bike next to the curve and killed the engine before I got off. “Well, that was the first time you actually spoke the truth,” I said slipping off the helmet and handing it back to him. “Only if you would trust me, sugar. I would definitely rock your world.” He replied holding onto his helmet.
“Are you like this to all of your one night stands?” I asked curiously.
“Normally they like it.” He said with a wink.
“You are such a tease.” He chuckled wrapping an arm around my waist and pulled me closer to him.
“A tease is when someone promises one night of fun. I promise a lifetime of fun.” He said his eyes holding mine captive. “One day I will have this sexy ass of yours and you won’t be able to let go of me.” He said with such determination.
“You don’t even know me and what makes you think that I will bow to you?” I asked not breaking any eye contact.
He gave a deep chuckle and then released me. “I find you interesting and I am trying my best to get to know you. But it seems you made up your mind about me.” He said slipping his helmet back on and lifting the visor as he started the bike.
“I always thought girls like you never judged a person?” He said before he drove off.
