There were lots of downsides to living in the dorms.
Communal bathrooms were one. Then there was the shared kitchen, the drunk
freshmen tramping through the hallways at 3 AM, and dealing with roommates. One
of the things that Derek didn’t mind, however, was being close to the dorm’s
The practice rooms were small supposedly sound-proof rooms
were dorm residents could practice musical instruments without disturbing their
neighbors. It was a good idea, theoretically—except whoever had designed he
building hadn’t apparently had a very good understanding of acoustics. Not only
were the walls of every dorm room deplorably thin (Derek really shouldn’t have
this good of an idea of how often his neighbor got laid), but the practice
rooms were also not nearly as “sound proof” as advertised.
Derek’s dorm room was right above his building’s practice
rooms. There were a lot of people who complained about the noise, but Derek
found himself enjoying the quiet melodies that leaked up from the floor below
him most evenings. It wasn’t like the sound was keeping him awake—the practice
rooms were closed after eleven, and Derek was never asleep before midnight.
Tonight was an unusually quiet night. Someone had been
practicing Bach on the clarinet a couple hours ago, but since then the floor
below had been silent. It was starting to put Derek on edge. He had two
different poetry assignments to finish tonight, and the words just weren’t
coming to him. Nothing he wrote down seemed worth keeping.
And then, like a Godsend, there was music—a guitar.
