Chapter 2

  • ~Layla~
  • I scrolled through my Instagram feed as I liked and commented on different people's pictures,most people knew me as a social freak since I'm among the popular teens,I do know few celeb teens like Madiysn,the artist and model.
  • We have hanged out few times and we became pretty close,some in my class tried to famz me so they can get closer to Madisyn since we are in the same department but I didn't give them a chance.
  • When I got to know about my new roommate,I was excited because I needed just two girls that can be real not fake.
  • I observed Ivy,she wasn't the one who talked much,she didn't even like talking,she was the pure definition of "antisocial" but I will make her to be social a bit, she's attractive and I'm sure final year boys will try to get her.
  • My phone rang and I checked the caller ID,it was Madisyn.
  • "Hey b."
  • "Hiiii, what's up?"
  • "I'm good,can you come over?,I need you."He pleaded.
  • "For?."I questioned.
  • "A lot of things, assignment and....I have junk foods"
  • "Okay,I'm coming."
  • I stood up from my bed,my roommates had gone to class,I opened my wardrobe and brought a big black shirt with joggers,I wasn't in the mood to dress.
  • ****
  • "Hey."I greeted as I got in.
  • Madisyn looked so frustrated and stressed out,"You don't look good."I stated.
  • "Yeah,I'm not,I got school stuff to catch up with and my producers are trying to pull me away from it,all week I have been modelling for different brands,no time for school."He replied.
  • "Since when did you care about school?."I asked jokingly.
  • "Since I realized that our course is competitive."He pointed out.
  • "Yeah."
  • "It will be embarrassing if they dump me in another department after year 1."
  • "Yeah, nobody would wants that,on the bright side,you are making alot of money."
  • "I know...wait..isn't this my shirt."He squinted his sexy eyes.
  • "Yeah...you gave it to me, remember?."I lied.
  • "No,I don't...you are such a thief."He smacked me.
  • "Ouch!."
  • Madisyn was my type of guy,I liked bad boys,I didn't know why but guys that had tattoo were something else.
  • Madisyn's skin color blended well with his tattoo,even though he was my type,I never bothered to catch feelings or try to build a relationship,I just wanted a single guy who I could vibe and make out with so yeah,we are friends with benefits.
  • "When will you stop smoking?."I asked him as he smoked a blunt.
  • I thought you liked bad boys.
  • "I can't because it helps."
  • "Yeah,right."I scoffed.
  • "You are looking adorable in this outfit,first time you aren't looking sexy."He stated.
  • "I don't know whether to take that as a compliment or an insult."
  • "Keep dressing like this so I won't have a boner because I always do when you dress sexy or when you dress corporate for class."He confessed.
  • "Really?,that's the more reason why I will keep dressing sexy,I like torturing you."I bit my lips as I looked at him.
  • "Temptation."He laughed as he shook his head.
  • "So I have a new roomie."I diverted the topic.
  • "Really?,is she you know....my type...let me see her pics.."
  • "You are such a man whore."I eyed him.
  • "Her name is Ivy,I don't think she's really interested in building a relationship with anybody, she's antisocial."I pointed out.
  • "Antisocial is my type."He licked his lips.
  • "Since when?."
  • "Since now."
  • When will he stop being a player.
  • ~Ivy~
  • I got to my lecture venue fifteen minutes before time,my white long sleeve was properly ironed and my skirt was very tight,I saw my course mates,they were laughing and chatting,I didn't bother starting a conversation with them,I blocked my ears with my earpiece and let my favorite artist,Cardi B's voice sink.
  • The guys were cute but I could see most of them were trying to show off to the girls and the girls were doing the same,I spotted Mr.killer with a tall guy,I acted as if I didn't see him.
  • He wouldn't even recognize me because I wore my glasses.
  • Why does he have to be my coursemate?!.
  • The female lecturer came and we got into the lecture hall,she introduced herself and gave us the course outline,the class was quite brief.
  • The next class we had was a general class for first year students,so I lighted up a little bit since Layla and Kimora will be there,I decided to buy some snacks from the cafe.
  • "Hi."The boy greeted me.
  • My glasses is hiding my "don't talk to me" face.
  • "Hey."
  • "I'm Jayden."
  • "Ivy."We shook hands.
  • "Are you staying for the general class?"He asked.
  • "Yes."
  • "Okay,let's go."
  • "No,thank you."I rejected.
  • "Why?."He pouted his lips.
  • "I don't want to be around him."
  • "You know him?."
  • "Yeah."
  • We both looked at him,our female course mates were already flocking around him and he was obviously not interested,he managed to escape from them and walked to us.
  • "Aren't we going to class? Or you want to keep flirting with our coursemates?."
  • "This is my friend,Riley."
  • "Riley meet Ivy."He introduced us.
  • "She looks familiar."He squinted his eyes as he tried to recognize me.
  • "Wait.... you!."
  • "What are you doing here?!."His facial expression changed.
  • "For someone who's studying law,you are quite daft and dumb,what am I doing here?!,I'm here to study."I replied sharply.
  • "Damn,she can talk fast."Jayden commented.
  • "I don't wanna be around her,if you are gonna be with her then I'm out."He walked out.
  • "Ok....ay..that was something...what happened between you two?."He curiously asked.
  • "He almost killed me."
  • Jayden had the nice vibes that I liked,he talked smart in class,had the height but I knew his type,guys like this who knows they have good looks doesn't show off,they chill and do their things,girls are the ones who will run after them and then,they will crush their hearts like it's nothing because girls chased them.
  • Regardless of the fact that he's a player,it was none of my business,I won't get hurt because I will friend zone him if he tries anything funny,lucky for me,he didn't flirt or do any of those charming stuffs,he just gave me the vibes that I wanted while Riley or whatever his name is called has this proud aura,maybe because he's a billionaire son but who cares definitely not me, he's the type of guy that will want everybody to bow down at his feet just because of looks, charm and background,well,girls are already doing that.
  • I have only known him for 2 days and he's proud,rude and annoying,he thinks his looks can get any girl but my past relationships has taught me alot and looks doesn't matter here.
  • "Ivy!."A sharp voice called out,it was Layla accompanied with Kimora and a guy who looked familiar.
  • "Jayden?."
  • Everybody seems to know everybody in this school.
  • "What's up?."Jayden shook hands with the guy.
  • "Hi,I'm Madisyn."He introduced himself and with that,everybody stared at us,stared at him.
  • They started murmuring and he became uncomfortable.
  • "Life of a celeb."Layla whispered to us.
  • My brain clicked,he's the model and everybody keeps admiring and artist who sings alot of heartbreak and love.
  • "Hi!,I'm Layla,this is Kim."She stretched her hand for the jerk to shake.
  • "Riley."He replied coldly.
  • Wow,girls want him but he doesn't want them,sounds like an ex player who got played big time.
  • Kim was uncomfortable for no reason,she was trying to adjust her clothes and trying to be noticeable,well it isn't easy to be in the midst of 3 hot guys.
  • Well,I guess I'm stuck in this circle.
  • Everybody had taken their seats,the only chair that was available was next to him.
  • "Kim,can we please exchange seats?."
  • "Sure.."She replied,she understood perfectly.
  • "I never knew she was sensible to stay the hell away from me with her annoying persona."He mumbled but I heard him.
  • "Good thing you know I'm sensible,maybe you should use your smart brain to figure out that people are only around you because of circumstances or despicable charming face,nobody likes Mr.Grumpy or bipolar kid."I glared at him,ignoring Kim who was in between us.
  • "And....I'm in the middle of this."Kim stated the obvious.
  • "Guys..."Jayden called out but we ignored him.
  • "Was that supposed to hurt?,you should try harder,you are just upset and annoyed that you are falling for this cute face but I already dislike you."He said as he scrolled through his phone.
  • "What exactly is the problem?."Layla asked nobody in particular.
  • "She's the problem,obviously,she was the one who appeared on the road out of nowhere and almost made me hit her,she refused to apologise instead she started exchanging words with me and unfortunately for both of us,we are coursemates and the only guy I have as a friend is her friend as well,could this place get any worst."He vented out.
  • "It's not our fault that you are one of the ungrateful person that got chosen into Ivy league schools."I scoffed.
  • "How have you been coping with them?."Madisyn questioned Jayden.
  • "It hasn't been easy."
  • General class went well,the lecturer mixed fun with tutoring so yeah.
  • I just wanted to get to the hostel and sleep or watch a movie.
  • "So...does anyone still have classes today?."Layla asked as we got out of the hall.
  • "Yeah,we are free."Jayden answered for us.
  • "Madisyn and I are free,Kim,are you?."Everybody looked at her.
  • "Yeah."
  • "Let's hang out then."
  • "Let's go to my place."Riley reluctantly said while glaring at me,I looked away.
  • "I'm not going."I spoke up.
  • "You weren't invited."He replied coldly.
  • "Or we can go to my place where everyone is invited...."Madisyn tried to lighten up the tension.
  • "You know what...I want you to come."Riley changed his mind.
  • "Your decision isn't going to affect mine."
  • "Come on,guys,stop bickering."Kim said.
  • "We aren't."Riley and I replied at the same time.
  • "You are coming, whether you like it or not,can you please drop us at our hostel so we can change to something else,you won't want us to go out with white and black or white and navy corporate wear?."Layla pleaded.
  • "Sure."
  • "Ivy,you are coming with Layla and I,Kim,you will join Jayden and Riley,I don't think Jayden will be able to handle it if Ivy and Riley starts their immature bickering in the car."Madisyn said and I agreed.
  • We drove to the hostel.
