"If you don want any trouble just do what I say" he positioned the knife directly in front of my face but then I was quick.
I stepped on his feet which made him stumble back followed by a yelp while holding and nursing his now bruised toes, the knife fell to the floor and I kneed him in his manhood he let out a animal-like groan.
I rounded the kitchen island and opened the door. I was about to leave and climb up the stairs but before I could even register what was happening I was back in the kitchen with a hand clamped around my mouth.
The sound of a piece of clothing being ripped off boomed through out the room. when I looked at the floor to see my shirt ripped into two leaving me in my bra. My mouth gaped opened and closed like a fish but there was a pain which stung my left cheek. He just slapped me.
"I told you there would be trouble if you misbehave" I blinked my tears away and let out a silent sob. "Guess we would have to do it here since you aren willing to behave" he yanked my arm while I started to beg.
"No please no"
"Shut up you bitch" he hit me again before putting me on the counter. Though he was still taller than me.
He started to unzip his pants and grabbed my waist tightly. His hands slid down my thighs which I tried to wriggle my way out of his grip but to no avail. He pulled my legs apart and drew me closer to him. A gasp escaped from my lips as he returned back to holding my waist and squeezing my butt. He put his hands on the waist band of my shorts while I tried to hit his chest but he didn budge. I tried pushing and slapping but it was no use.
Waking up by the alarm was always a life saver. Breathing heavily I wiped the sweat off my face with the tissue on the dresser and turned off the alarm. Taking a few deep breaths I closed my eyes trying not to remember the past and focus on the present.
So I rolled off my and stretched out my limbs then head straight to the bathroom. I sneered in disgust at my reflection in the mirror, my early morning look was hideous but it was always on me. knowing Im not a morning person has its disadvantages on me.
For instance, lets begin with my hair. it looks like a bird nest because of its short length. And lets not forget about the bags under my eyes oh and how about the morning breath always a pleasure to have them.
I skipped my thoughts and striped out of my pajamas which consisted of a large shirt and shorts. My feet subconsciously took Me to the shower and then I turned it on. I stepped out of the shower and began to brush my teeth. Wrapping a towel around my naked body and the toothbrush still in my mouth I went to my closet and brought out my workout clothes which was just a black fitted leggings and a sweatshirt which spelt UCLA and by working out I meant running from here to the park which was just 2 miles away.
I put on my clothes and slipped into my Nike sneakers then brought out my earbuds. opening the door as quietly as possible not wanting to cause any noise. I sneaked out like I usually do so I won have to wake my roommate up even though shes a deep sleeper. With lightening speed I ran out of the apartment and went down the stairs skipping the elevator to warm my legs up.
"Ah ready for your run I see" the door man- Chad- spoke up when I finally reached the last step. I gave him a smile and greeted the forty two years old Asian.
"Good morning Chad and yes I am".
"Why do you even run anyway you don hit me as the type who would care about what you weigh?" He asked
"Well it actually helps as a stress relief and to think, it helps cool my mind".
"So it isn because of what you weigh?".
"Nope" I shook my head and laughed at him when he gave me a look.
"You know I have another way for you to exercise" he winked. Oh no here we go again.
"Ive told you countless of times that I don want to date you".
"Ok give me a good reason why".
"Oh I don know maybe because you have three wives waiting for you back in Beijing or because you have a daughter who is already my age or that you
e your older than me or...."
"Alright thats enough..." He caught off, he looked annoyed then he continued "but I still want you to marry me"
"Thanks for the offer but no thanks" I got out as soon as I could so I don have to hear him say another word.
I studied the weather and took another set of deep breaths with fresh air, it was just a little bit dark but u can still see the road. I plugged in my earpiece and selected a song before putting my phone back into my pocket and proceeded to jog.
I passed the all too familiar neighborhood and school which is just a mile away from the apartment. I waved and smiled at some fellow joggers and ignored the wolves whistles I got when I passed the boys fraternity house
"Hi hot stuff"
I let out a sigh of frustration before turning back to the boys and walked up to them and they were five of them outside
Noah the head of the fraternity stepped forward until he was completely in front of me just a few feet away. Noah was the good-looking black sportsman with dark hair and a great build, he was also in the same hieght as me. He was a nice guy with confidence and pride but his only problem was....
"Give it up for René" he hollaed and the rest of them cheered on.
....he was loud
"Hey guys" i waved at them with a smile on my face. I actually liked them.
"Yo whats up"
"How u doing"
"I love you"
We all turned to see Bryan who was the one that said that last part.
Noah, Ben, Bryan, luscious, Kyle, Lucas and Cameron we
e the seven guys in living in the frat house, they throw the nastiest parties and are basically known to all the students on campus. Non of them have ever been in a relationship for up to a month except for Cameron who is in a decent one for up to 6 months with a Parisian. Thats the highest record in the history of boys in that fraternity house. They also have confusing and funny last names like.
Noah Fork, Ben Kimonski, Bryan Trade, Luscious Vicious, Kyle Stan, Lucas Stable and Cameron Sunday.
I know right
But out of the seven guys i could only see Noah, Bryan, Luscious, Kyle and Lucas.
"What the ** dude"Noah shouted and just in Kyle whipped his head.
"Ouch, why the ** did you do that?" Bryan complained.
"Just shut the ** up dumbass" Noah finally got his attention back to me. "So Im having this party. Friday night you..."
"Nope" I said and returned back to my jogging "see you later guys" I waved and smiled at them.
"See later too"
"Wait" Noah called out before I knew it he was jogging along side of me.
"What do you mean no you didn even wait for me to finish" he said breathlessly.
"I didn need you to you were about to ask me if I could make it to your party on Friday" I raised an eyebrow he nodded and smiled "No".
"Why" I stopped and faced him.
"Because parties aren my thing".
"But please gorgeous".
"Ok Ill think about it".
"Promise" I lied crossing my fingers.
"Good see you later then" he said awkwardly and left. I resumed my exercise without anymore interruptions.
I ran some more and bumped into some friends, coursemates and ex- roommates, after chatting and exchanging a few words I decided to go back home. I got to the apartment real fast and thanked the stars Chad wasn at the reception anymore. I went into the elevator and was in the living room in no time, my thirst for water made my legs move to the fridge in the kitchen and my eyes went to the little white board we put on the fridge and not to my surprise It was written by my loving and caring roommate (hint the sarcasm).
Sorry for not waiting for you
But something came up, The
Girls needed me. You know
where Ill be.
"Great" I mumbled sarcastically, rolling my eyes I grabbed the water in the fridge and wiped the board.
Time to get this day over with.
"Oh God Lizzy is going to pay for this" I grumbled to myself seeing as how I had to almost run to get to the schools library on time, which was way across the far end of the University and was five miles away from the apartment. Why can we just meet at our own faculty library which is much more easier I thought.
I walked into the library and was greeted with the smell of coffee, old pages, air fresheners and silent chimes. Uh this is why, totally worth it. Not only was this place store and filled with text books but it also had its own fantasy section with books of various types of genres and the best part is that they also serve different types of coffee, lattes, tea and pastries. they also have a lounge where comfortable couches and bean bags are so you can have a bite while reading and sitting comfortably. Its one of the best chill out place in UCLA. But of course Lizzy has to bring her girls along when we meet here.
The noise made from someone clearing thier throat cut me off my thoughts and I then turned to see the Liberian
"Good morning Mrs Richards" I greeted as quietly as I can.
"You don need to talk like that you know".
"Sorry" I apologized instantly feeling stupid.
"Good morning to you too. Haven I told you to call me Monica?" She replied. She always acts young and gets irritated when someone referred to her as "old" in any way. Thats why she wants everyone to call her by her first name even though shes just forty eight years old.
Mrs Richards was a forty eight years old widow who had bright Chestnut coloured hair which is slowly thinning and turning grey, with her tall and slim body which is a miracle because she gave birth to five children. And a very nice and Godly attitude. Maybe I can set her up with Chad who knows he can have a thing for an older woman.
"Im sorry Im just used to calling you that".
She sighed "if you choose to" she gave me a hug and disappeared.
I continued my journey towards the sections in search of a certain someone until I finally caught her blue eyes.
My closest friend/ partner in crime and pranks/ roommate and sister from another mister.
She had dirty blond hair with big blue eyes and medium size kissable lips (for clarification Im straight). Her plain white Gucci dress hugged her body and brought out her curves. She had on a pair of black stilettos and applied just little make up. Her hair was done in curls she topped it off with the blue diamond earrings which -I worked day and night to get the money to buy for her birthday- brought out her eyes.
I have to admit I adorerd her mode of dressing but didn dare dressing up like that. Compared to me who is just wearing a navy blue cone shoulder blouse with black jeans and boots. I had shoulder length brunette hair with natural highlights which is now pulled up into a bun top off with natural tanned skin which complemented my braclet the only jewelry I also had on. Lizzy is the definition of beauty.
She came strutting down the romance section aisle to me.
"Hey chica" she said and pulled me into a hug.
"Hi" I returned it.
"There isn much time lets move on to this weeks plans" she began to drag me to the couch where all her "girlfriends" are after a quick greeting she continued to drag me until we were at our favorite couch in front of the cafe " so the car won be available this Friday because of the party on Friday night..."
I cut her off "is it the party Noah Fork is throwing?"
"How did you know that. Wait are you..."
"No Im not going to the party"
"Just go on"
"Ok where was I... Oh yes the car is free throughout this week until Friday" I blinked and blinked again.
"Really" my voice was laced with disbelief.
"Yeah" she giggled at my expression and leaned back "I don need it, Amy Sparks said she would take me to campus so no need" she went through her bag until there was a clinking sound "don be surprised here are the keys" the keys were hanging from her index finger hesitantly I took it still suprised.
"Thank you" I shrieked and threw myself at her. When I pulled back there was a series of shhhh and everyones eyes were on me with thier fingers on thier lips "sorry" I yelled in a whisper
"You don need to thank me its your car to" she chuckled and watched me. It took all my might to keep with every step I took to exit the library.
When I spotted the car I dashed towards it and gave it a big hug and various kisses "Ive missed you so much car" I whispered.
We absolutely love this car because of its beauty and speed. The car was originally in grey but us being us repainted it to red. I unlocked the car with the remote and after a few seconds I was in the drivers seat, hands on the steering wheel, seatbelt buckled and key in the ignition.
My feet pressed on the accelerator and before I knew it I was moving in full speed and took the turn to my faculty.
I have a feeling today is going to be great.
I just wanted to inform you that the first few chapters might be boring but I assure you theres going to be drama.
Dedicated to Isha.
