Monday: While our new Billing's girls are getting settled in, the infamous Billing's foursome is hosting a lunch in for everyone to hang out with their boyfriends and just... chill out. After class that is.
When class ended, Vera came to me. "Hey, Ro. You coming to the lunch?"
I nodded. "Of course! I'll see you there, I'm looking for Aspen."
Vera smiled and left.
I found Aspen, crowded by a ton of people. She was quickly becoming popular. "Hey, Aspen!"
"Hi, Roman." she said, finally getting out of the mob. "Oops, sorry, I meant Ro." she smiled.
"What's with the crowd?" I asked, nodding my head to her locker.
Aspen shrugged. "I don't even know,"
Well, I knew! Aspen was the newest, gorgeous addition to Easton, and all the Freshman and others couldn't wait to devour her. Devour her, as in be her friend, try to end her, start some drama or just be fascinated by her. This is usual, it happens to mostly everyone. Within a couple of days, you're old news (unless your a Billings' or are an attention-seeker).
"Are you coming to the lunch?"
"Yeah, I just have to go do something really quickly. Save me a seat?" she asked. I nodded and then she was gone.
When I came into the lunch room, I immediately found Chase. Of course he would come. He seemed like the type.
"Hey, babe." he said to me as I hugged him.
I frowned. "Oh, please, are you really already calling me babe?" I laughed.
Chase laughed, "I'm sorry, I didn't know that bothered you."
"No, it doesn't, but isn't a little too soon?" I asked, wistfully.
He shook his head. "Honestly, it doesn't really matter. Instead of talking, lets," and then he folded me into his arms and we stayed like that for a while. Until Vera and Aspen came up to me.
"Ro? Can I sit here?" Aspen asked. No, I forgot to save her a seat.
I shrugged, "Sure," I mumbled and then went back to Chase.
