Brandon began calling her the second she gave him the okay, she purposely waited a while to answer because she didn't want him to know she was waiting by her phone. "Hi." She smiled at the camera.

"Awe, your smiles cute."

Her cheeks turned red at his compliment, it was so easy for her to start to feel nervous especially when she was complimented.

"Too bad there's nothing cute about you." She laughed, the way she got through nerves was through insults.

"Oh you think you're funny?" He licked his lips.

"I know I'm funny." She smacked her lips at him. "I'm lowkey nervous right now, and when I get nervous I just don't shut up so if I keep rambling just-"

"Viv." He stopped her. "Just breathe for a minute don't get yourself worked up from nothing, okay?"

He was very calming to her, the way he would take control over a situation made her feel comfort.

She copied his breathes as he intended, "Now why are you nervous?"

"Well I have a test tomorrow and I've been studying like crazy and I still feel like I don't know anything. So in a way you're my distraction too."

"You're not a distraction to me, Viv. I didn't mean it like that. I enjoy our conversations. All of them." He assured her. "And do you need help studying? What's the test?"

"Biology. I honestly can't look at another vocabulary word, I will jump off the cliff."

"Would you really though?"

"Okay, no. But I definitely would cry."

"You got this. I know what I'm telling you."

She began noticing that he was paying attention to the top of his screen where notifications would come in, "You're getting busy now?"

He quickly shook his head, "No Char just wants me to call her now."

"Oh." She paused for a moment, "Call her."

"No I'm talking to you, don't be dumb."
