Chapter Four

After an upsetting goodbye with his Mother, and a plane ride that felt like forever, Lewis was by his self. He looked around at his dorm room, with his suitcases by his feet. He let out a troubled sigh and moved to the bed that looked abandoned and unwanted. The door burst open and Lewis quickly glanced at it. "Hey man," The guy in the doorway smiled.

"Hey," Lewis nodded. The guy moved across the room and fell onto the other bed. There was a silence between the two of them, and Lewis was unsure what to say. "I'm Lewis by the way," He said, "Lewis Collins."

"Mike," He nodded, "Mike Conroy."

Lewis nodded and started taking out some of his stuff. Mike just lay on his bed in silence. It was almost like Mike was thinking something over, so Lewis just chose to ignore him. "Lewis?" Mike asked, "Like Lewis Collins?"

With a sigh Lewis turned around and stared at Mike. "Didn't I just say that?" He asked.

"Yeah, but," Mike muttered, sitting up on his bed, "Like Leah Coburn's Lewis?"

Lewis flinched and turned to Mike. "I guess you could put it that way," He shrugged, "But I don't like to associate myself with Leah anymore."

"Dude, I can't believe this!" Mike yelled standing up, "This is wicked! I can't wait to tell my friends. One of my girl friends actually started crying when she saw the news."

"Um, thanks?" Lewis muttered, raising an eyebrow.

Mike smirked and then quickly walked out of the room. Lewis didn't want Mike telling everyone who he was though, so he quickly followed Mike out of the room. "Wait!" Lewis called, "Mike!"

As Lewis followed his roommate out and into the hallway, he didn't pay attention to where he was walking. So instead of following Mike any further, he walked right into someone. They collided so hard that it caused the both to fall to the ground. The girl's papers went flying all over the place. "Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry," She gushed, quickly picking up the papers, "People tell me I shouldn't be looking down at the ground while walking but it's the only way I can make sure I don't trip and fall. This doesn't matter though, because either way I trip. And oh my goodness I'm rambling! Crap! I do this all the time when I'm nervous."

"It's alright," Lewis chuckled, helping her pick up her papers.

"I'm new here. I'm Ms. Gallo," She smiled, "I'm the teacher aid here."

"Nice to meet you," Lewis nodded, "I'm a freshman, so I guess you're not the only new one here trying to find their way." Ms. Gallo looked up and smiled warmly. Her hair was long and brown, in soft waves along her shoulders. She had chocolate brown eyes that looked confused and happy.

"Were you in a rush somewhere?" She asked, biting her lip gently.

Lewis looked up and looked around for Mike, but was unable to find him. "I guess not," Lewis sighed, "Why?"

A small blush crossed over Ms. Gallo's cheeks, and she quickly looked down to continue collecting her papers. "I was just wondering if you could, um, help me bring these papers to the classroom I was assigned."

"Sure," Lewis nodded, picking up the last few papers from the ground. He stood up and quickly put them in a stack and waited for Ms. Gallo to stand up.

"So how do you like UCLA so far?" She asked. She was looking up at him, because he was a lot taller than she was.

"I just got here," Lewis shrugged.

"Oh," She nodded, "Well how about California?"

"It's nice," Lewis nodded, "Hot, but nice."

"You get used to it," She told him, before moving along the hallways. Lewis followed her, making sure they stepped together at the same time. "I've been living here for most of my life," She told him, "My Dad was transferred to here when I was a young girl, and by the time I was able to go wherever I wanted there was nowhere for me to go."

"That stinks," He agreed.

"It is what it is," She nodded, "But I've made friends here and this is my home now. I can't picture myself living anywhere else." She blushed when she realized she had told Lewis so much. "Sorry," She muttered, "I'm rambling again."

"No problem," Lewis shrugged.

"Who's your roommate?" Ms. Gallo asked.

"Mike Conroy," Lewis sighed, already knowing that his roommate was going to be trouble. To confirm his assumption Ms. Gallo's face scrunched up. "Bad?" Lewis asked.

"Not the worse," She grumbled, "But the kid who almost knocked me over before you did. I'm pretty sure he didn't even know I was standing there."

"Sorry," Lewis winced.

"It's whatever," She shrugged. They came to the end of the hallway and Ms. Gallo stopped in front of a closed door. "This is me," She smiled. She shoved the rest of the papers into Lewis's hands and searched her pockets for her keys. "Sorry," She winced, "I'm all over the place."

"I can tell," Lewis chuckled.

Ms. Gallo blushed and finally found the keys in her jean pockets. She put the small key into the door lock and opened the door. Her room had paper work scattered all over the place. It looked like a tornado was in here. "Like I said," She blushed, "I'm all over the place."

Lewis laughed and walked into the room. "Hey," He smiled, "If you ever need help cleaning up, come get me. I always have free time."

"But what about your school work?" She asked.

"I'm always done early," Lewis shrugged. A bright smile broke onto Ms. Gallo's face.

"I'd like that," She nodded, still smiling. Lewis smirked and set the papers down on her desk and looked around one more time.

"Well I guess I should go unpack," He muttered.

"Right, right," She nodded, "I'm sorry for holding you up."

"You're fine," Lewis shrugged, "I just want to unpack everything before I have to go get my schedule."

"You're right," She told him, "Go ahead, go!" Lewis gave her a small smile before nodding and walking towards the door. "Wait," She called as he put his hand on the doorway. Lewis turned around to look at her. "I forgot to get your name," She winced.

"Oh," He smiled, "Lewis Collins."

The small smile and blush that was on Ms. Gallo's face faded and her face became blank. "I've heard of you," She admitted.

"Most people have," Lewis said with a sigh and a shrug.

That wasn't what Ms. Gallo was referring too. She looked up and gave Lewis a scary smile. A mischievous one that made Lewis shiver deep down inside. "I mean I've really heard of you," She told him, smiling scarily, "So you can just call me Stephanie."
