Thanks for checking out this book. Please note that this was my first story on Wattpad. I wrote it when I was a teen and it's very cliche.

Enjoy, CG.

My last class of the day finally came to an end. As the professor moved out, I threw my clipboard and pen into my backpack and pulled out my phone which still had earphones plugged in. I said goodbye to my neighbour and hurried out of the hall. I wasn't in the mood to talk to anyone so I stuck my earphones in my ears to shut out the world. A knot tied itself in my stomach when I remembered I was going to meet my new roommate.

A while later, I was outside my apartment building. I could hear Eminem's rap coming from inside. That was surprising. Although, most of the residents of the apartment building were students, no one ever played extremely loud music during weekdays at 5pm. Who wanted noise after a long stressful day? Apparently, someone did.

I met Chris, a boy who claimed to be in love with me as I ascended the stairs.

"Hey, Lynn." He said, smiling.

"Hey," I answered without slowing down so I couldn't talk to him. He just laughed and resumed his walk downstairs.

To my dismay, the music was blasting right from my room. That was a major turnoff. It seemed to me that I'd never get on well with my new roommate. I knocked a few times but nothing happened. Maybe he was in his bedroom. Besides, the music was too loud to hear anything.

I gave up waiting and opened my bag to find my keys. I had gotten used to my ex roommate Kari who always had an organized bag. She always found her keys easily and opened the door for us. Now I was alone with my messy bag. It took me almost five minutes to find the keys. I had to fish everything out before I could get them. I hoped I'd remember to keep them in the side next time.

I opened the door entered my living room which had drastically changed in the few hours I'd been away. The living room was messy with things everywhere; on the floor, table, seats, etcetera. And last of all, a boy and a girl making out on my couch.

I slammed the door closed so hard that they looked up in surprise. The girl who was lying below saw me first, the boy turned. He smiled and I almost went weak in the knees. He was even more handsome than I'd thought.

"Hey roommate," he said and leaned towards the girl, putting his lips back to hers. He lowered his body as his hand caressed her bare thigh.

"Not here!" I yelled, in competition with the excessively loud music. "Get off my couch!" The libertine stood up with a smirk and walked to his room, followed by the girl who didn't even bother to zip her shorts. He kissed her again outside the door to his bedroom and winked at me before going in. How disgraceful!

I walked to my room in anger.
I was going to kill Jen and Kari for this. How did I end up with such annoying friends? Kari had left me and moved in to live with her new boyfriend Ron. He was more important, eh? On the other hand, Jen had agreed to the proposal that Ron's cousin, Alec should be my new roommate. Then, I the foolish girl had agreed without even knowing what type of person Alec was.

I hated him already. It was his first day in the apartment but he'd already tried to have sex in the living room, he played loud music on a weekday, and had gotten the room more messy than I'd ever seen before. Was that what I was going to live with for a full semester? I was damned. He even had the guts to smile at me. His smile was good but I was not charmed because he seemed to be a jerk. I was not one to be swayed by looks.

I'd walked all the way from campus so I decided to take a shower. I pulled off my clothes and rushed to the bathroom. The cold water soothed my mind and dry skin. It had been a hot day. I wanted to enjoy the sensation with all my mind but the scene I'd found kept replaying in my head.

I was too preoccupied with my thoughts to notice that the music had stopped. When I did notice, I realized I'd been in the bathroom for over I don't know how many minutes, but a very long time. I was hungry so I hurriedly wrapped a small towel around my body and stepped out of the bathroom.

What the hell?

Alec was seated on my bed, looking contented. It was high time I started locking my door since I now had a male roommate. I wondered what he wanted from my bedroom minutes after having sex. I felt nauseous, seeing him on my bed.

"Ew, get off my bed." I said.

"You look very sexy in that towel, roommate," he smirked, checking me out. His gaze lingered a little too long on my chest.

Let's just say he didn't know who I was and what I was capable of. I pressed my lips together, heaving an exasperated sigh. I glared at him. "Get out, you moron."

He put his hands behind him on the bed and threw his head back. "Why should I?"
