❛ Look, babe. I’m sure you’re real nice n’ everything.
But like I’ve already told you m’ not looking for any
relationship. Only kept you around ‘cause y’
a good shag n’ not that annoying. ❜
❛ Whoa, hold up — no one’s talking about a relationship right now. No need to jump
to conclusions over a fuckin’ party. ❜
Alex sipped beer from his bottle. He was a normal at this bar and he knew almost everyone who walked in. Whenever he walked in, the bartenders already knew his order. Alex set his beer down and rested his arms on the counter top. A quirky ‘hey’ pulled his attention to the brunette beside him. “Hi.” he chuckled. He hadn’t ever seen the girl in the bar before. “You look a little nervous, new to town?”
It wasn’t customary for the girl to greet random strangers, but strangely enough, there was something about the blonde that captured her interest and in all honesty, he wasn’t at all bad to look at either. Throwing back a shot, Emery winced as the alcohol took immediate effect in her system before she answered him, nodding her head. “Yeah, I’m actually from out of state. I heard there was something going on tonight… so here I am.”
His brows furrow tight at the thought, a mixture of disgust and
confusion on his features and he shakes his head slightly.
❝ I don’t even know what a ‘Hot Pocket' is, why in God’s
name would I have ever eaten one before? ❞
Her attention is drawn to the beeping sound of the microwave and
taking out the plate carefully, so as not to burn herself before
returning his disgusted expression with an amused smile.
❝ You haven’t lived properly until you’ve tried one of
these. I promise. ❞
Emery hadn’t expected the place to be this crowded, as she weaved her way through the bar full of people talking, drinking and making out. Definitely not her scene. Not when it took almost all of her parents’ savings to put her through this university in the first place. But it was the first night and she might as well have some fun, right? It wasn’t like she had any homework or even an important class the next day, just typical moving in to her room and sorting out her course load sort of shit. With that in mind, the brunette ordered her first round of shots and took her seat next to a guy who, from her first glance, looked about the same age as her.
