How do you fall in
love with someone you don’t even know?
Friends with Benefits / College AU. 2,195 words.
Let’s get to the point.
The two of you are fuck buddies.
Frankly speaking, you two
aren’t even buddies, pals, friends, or acquaintances for god’s sakes. It’s more
of strangers with benefits or just repetitive one night stands with the same
After three months, all
you know is his name, his phone number, and that he goes to the same college as
you. But despite the fact that you both attend the same university, your paths
never cross until one late night party happened and you both found yourself in the
same bed. And that became the start of your relationship. Well, if you can even
call it that.
And right now, a simple
text of “my dorm in 15?” from a certain Jeon Jungkook has you scrambling
to grab your keys and phone. There’s no need to even get ready at this point.
Who do you have to impress? It’s just sex and then you leave.
No strings attached.
at least, that’s what the two of you thought.
always less complicated in theory than in action.
Anon - Maybe one where the reader is more (a lot more) hesitant to start a relationship but he really wants this one So hes gonna prove himself! Save their life or something As if he doesn’t do that enough haha I just need more of him… you feel me?
You gasped, laying flat on your back on the landing halfway down the stairwell staring up at the filthy ceiling. Chekov backed down the stairs, his phaser trained on the door that he just jammed closed.
“Are you alright?” he asked.
“You just threw me down the stairs,” you grunted, pushing yourself back to standing. “But yeah, I’m fine.”
“Sorry,” he muttered, turning pink and letting his gaze slide sideways to you. “Did I hurt you?”
You growled softly at the tender tone he used. It was so infuriatingly sweet.
“No, you didn’t hurt me, Pavel,” you hissed, tugging at his uniform. “Let’s go.”
“Aye,” he agreed, backing down the next staircase after you, keeping his eyes on the door above. “I’m sorry.”
“Just… stop trying to be a hero, alright? I know what you’re trying to do.”
“You do?” he asked, sounding crestfallen.
“Of course I do. And… if I can give you some advice?” you paused and looked back at him. He watched you waiting for the shoe to drop. “You’ll have a way better chance if we’re both still alive.”
He gaped at you before a delighted look of relief crossed his face.
“I knew you vere coming around!” he exclaimed, following you more quickly down the stairs to the next landing.
“Yeah, yeah. My tricorder is reading human life signs on this deck, it might be the engineering team. Get your phaser ready.”
“Aye, aye,” he said, setting his stance impressively before you opened the door.
The chill comes and goes. The rain sweeps in and across and out of the city, kissing the streets. This is El Niño: A continual unknowing, a cold, wet swath of weather that is, above all, relieving. I spend the summer months longing for weather like this. From March through October, I forget what rain sounds like, smells like, feels like. But now, finally, in the rain, I can breathe.
Of course, I worry that the city of Los Angeles still hasn’t figured out how to capture rain water, I dread the thought of all this much needed precipitation draining into the ocean, but I sigh and I forget. I imagine the rain is helping the drought. And I go to the market, even in the rain. I go hard on citrus season.
Piling as many different kinds of citrus as I can into my VitaMix has become a favorite pastime for me. Particularly in the winter, the juicy orbs evoke a mixture of sunshine and hydration that I find deeply necessary in the chill. Combined with turmeric and a few dashes of cayenne, this juice will quickly rev up your engines and get your ready for just about anything.
