Waking up in my new dorm is surreal. Akina Lee must have already left because the room is silent when I shut my alarm off. I want to do a dance as I enter the bathroom and there's a used towel in the hamper not in the floor. Oh Akina Lee, we will definitely get along just fine!

I take a shower with a smile on my face the entire time. I'm in such a good mood I blow dry and curl my hair and even put on makeup.

Who am I? Who is this happy person so early in the morning?

I put on an over sized light gray off the shoulder sweater, black leggings and boots.

"Whoa, look at you, looking cute. Dressing up your leggings today." Kelis says as soon as I meet up with her at the Caf after a full day of classes. 

"What can I say, I'm pretty happy right now." I shrug.

"Did you talk to Nix?"

I shake my head. "No he wasn't there when I went back, I was hoping I could hunt him down today."

If not I guess I'll be making a trip to the Basement tonight in hopes that I find him there.

She frowns. "I haven't seen him but I honestly don't see him often."

Kelis and I grab some food but instead of taking a seat at our usual table which is currently empty I spot Taylor sitting with Brandon, Gage and a couple other guys so I guide Kelis there instead.

"Taylor I really need to talk to you, could we go somewhere a little more private?" I ask.

He gives me a worried look but nods and looks at his friends. "I'll catch up with you guys later, okay?"

The guys say their goodbyes and leave the Caf.

"Does she need to be here for this?" Taylor asks sending Kelis a glare.

"Actually yes." I sigh. "I don't think you'll want to talk about this here though, let's go talk somewhere else."

This isn't exactly a conversation we should be having in a public space full of people.

"Ryan you're freaking me out, just tell me what's going on." His face turns ashen. "You aren't pregnant, are you?"

My eyes widen and Kelis laughs, I'm sure at the fact that me being pregnant would be impossible since I've never had sex.

"No!" I gasp.

He relaxes back against his chair. "Thank god, what is it then?"

Since he insists we talk here I just dive into everything Kelis told me.

By the end of our discussion Taylor is in actual tears. I've never seen my brother cry before, ever. He drops his face into his hands and just starts sobbing, gaining a lot of looks from the surrounding tables. I glare at the people that think it's okay to gawk and wrap my arms around him.
