Seth is back to his usual self which I'm extremely happy about especially since I'm currently staying with him. Plus he got me breakfast and a coffee this morning so my day started out amazing.

"So are you guys living together now?" Dawson's voice makes me jump, my phone slips out of my hand and smacks against my thigh.

I glare at him and clutch my chest. "You have really got to stop doing that! I don't think we've started a conversation without you scaring me first."

He winces. "My bad. In my defense I thought you heard my bag hit the floor."

"Well I didn't." I huff.

He arches a dark brow at me. "You're avoiding my question."

I shake my head even though he's right. "I'm not avoiding the question. I am currently staying with Seth until my dorm room is ready, two weeks maximum."

I would normally say it wasn't any of his business but he does share the apartment with Seth so it definitely is his business.

He bites his bottom lip, staring at his large hands for a minute before sighing and meeting my gaze. "He really likes you Ryan."

I slump in my seat and groan. "No he doesn't Dawson, he's my best friend and he's the biggest player I know."

Dawson scoffs. "He only started fucking anything with a vagina because Sasha screwed him over. She really messed with his head when she cheated on him."

"Okay but that doesn't change the fact that he does and again he's my best friend."

He nods. "You're right, but he doesn't see you as a friend. The way he looks at you I've never seen him look at anyone, even Sasha." He rubs his hand down his handsome face and groans. "I can't even believe I'm about to say this but I can picture him actually falling in love with you."

My jaw literally drops at the words that just came out of his mouth. In love with me, what the? Seth is not in love with me! In lust? Possibly but love, no way. Is Dawson drunk, did he do some shots before he came to class this morning? Smoke a joint?

"Are you high?" I ask through narrowed eyes.

"No, I'm not high. Just take a step back and pay attention and I think you'll see exactly what I mean."

Before I can say anything else Professor Edwards starts his lecture.

"Dude, why did I think it was a good idea to get a job? The last thing I want to do tonight is work." Kelis whines as we take a seat at our usual table in the Caf.

I can't help but laugh. As much as I love Kelis I had a feeling this would happen, she's a tiny bit spoiled.

"Does that mean you aren't working tonight?" I ask shoving a forkful of salad in my mouth.
