Armoni POV:

I can't believe this.

I missed the deadline for new dorm rooms and I'm getting kicked out of my dorm room in two hours.

"Hey, I've got a friend that needs a roommate." My teammate Brandy said.

"Really, who and is it on campus or off campus?" I asked with hope.

"There's a flyer up in the commons about it, yeah it's about five or ten minutes away from your old room, it's in the Northland Apartments."

"Thank you sooo much, how about you and Andrea come with me to check it out." I asked her.

"Yeah that sounds like fun, and then we can meet your new roomies, let me call Drea." Brandy said pulling her phone out.

I started packing up the rest of my things while Brandy was on the phone with her sister Andrea. I packed away all of my clothes already so all that was left was my bedding and pictures I had placed around her room.

"She said she'll meet us there in ten minutes." She told me.

"Okay, well help me pack the rest of this stuff away." I asked her.

"Girl you got too much shit." She complained.

"Just shut up and help." I laughed. A few minutes later we finished packing away my things and were walking down the stairway and began putting the bags into my 2012 black Impala. After driving to the commons to locate the flyer that was advertising the apartment.

"Just rip it off so no one else can get there before you do." Brandy said as I ripped the flyer off the bulletin board and sprinting out of the building to my car. When we got to the apartment building, we set off looking for apartment number 911 and a person who she guessed name was Rome. They found Andrea by the laundry mat texting on her IPhone.

When we all finally reached apartment #911 Brandy knocked on the door to be answered with silence. We all continued to knock until the door was swung open. A God stood in the doorway.

He towered over us in only a towel and dripping wet. I tore my eyes away from the man's body as the water cascaded down his abs running over his tattoo's and dissolving into his towel. The man cleared his throat and licked his lips.

"May I help you beautiful young ladies" He asked with a smirk, his eyes lingered on Brandy momentarily before focusing all of his attention to me.

"Oh I'm sooo sorry; we must have the wrong apartment number." I said embarrassed.

"It's fine, who are you looking for I might be able to help" He said smirking.

We're looking for someone named Rome." Brandy said looking down at the flyer in her hands.

"You found him." He replied smiling at me.

"Huh?" We said at the same time, while he laughed running his hand over his face making his large biceps flex.

"I take it one of you is looking to be my new roommate and didn't expect me." He said chuckling lightly.

"Yeah, I guess that's true well I guess we'll be going now, thanks for your time." I spoke up.

"What are you talking about; you still need a place to stay." Andrea hissed, elbowing me.

"I'll figure something out lets go." I said feeling defeated.

"Armoni, you can't, this is all that's left." Andrea said trying to convince me to live with this man for the two whole semesters of school I had left.

"Yeah, and I'm not that bad." Jerome said with a smile showing his dimples. I amost forgto he was standing there listening to us debate.

"Are you sure you don't mind being roommates with a female?" I asked hesitantly.

"No, I actually have two other roommates my cousin Tatiyana and my best friend Michael, if you want to come in we can talk about it more." Jerome said moving aside so we could enter the apartment.

It was surprisingly big, it was clean too. It immediately made me feel at home. The furniture was black and it had different red and white accents. Jerome gestured for all of us to sit down on the couch.

"Well I guess I better go put on some clothes, make yourselves at home. I'll be back in a minute." He said winking at me before disappearing into the hallway.

"Girl yo ass is crazy if you don't take this deal, this apartment is nice plus you'll be rooming with Yana and Jerome is fine as hell." Brandy said when Jerome disappeared down the hall.

"I guess it won't be so bad huh?" I thought out loud, contemplating the move I would have to make.

"Yeah, plus if you feel uncomfortable or if something happens Yana will be here too, plus you can come visit me and Brandy, since it close to our apartment." Drea said trying to further convince me that moving in here was the best choice.
