You had started to pack your books into your bag, shuffling echoing across the room as the lecturer turned off his powerpoint. Upon instinct, your eyes darted backwards, chancing a glance at Kylo. It took all your willpower to keep your heart from leaping out to him, his hair dishevelled slightly as he stifled a yawn upon the back of his hand. His eyes were heavy, the effects of a three hour lecture weighing on his angular features. You tore your gaze away, shrugging your bag onto your shoulder.

How can someone look so perfect at such an early lecture? Kylo thought as he watched you pack your things. You always managed to sit two rows in front of him, and he was gloriously rewarded with an unobstructed view of the side of your face whenever you turned to make a comment to your friend. His thoughts often wondered away from the topic being discussed, instead focusing on the way you frowned if your friend started talking while you were invested in listening to the teacher. He particularly loved the little sigh you gave whenever the lecturer called break, resting your head on the desk in an uncomfortable fashion. But now was the best part of the day; when he’d see your expressionless (yet so unbelievably beautiful) face turn towards the door, and he’d soon follow as he was in the same class after this lecture. He saw your eyes suddenly dart up to where he was seated. Faking a yawn, he squeezed his eyes shut, praying that you hadn’t just caught him staring. But then the second fact in his mind prevailed more significantly than the first, and that was that you were looking at him.

Class had only just begun, and yet you found yourself wishing it was already over. Not only was the topic completely boring, but you were seated right next to Kylo. The combination of thrill and boredom mixed to create an overwhelmingly annoying emotion.

“Have you started the assignment yet?” Kylo’s voice whispered in your ear, his proximity becoming apparent. You turned to him, taking in his wide eyes. His large nose was practically caressing your cheek, his breath fanning against your face.

“Yeah.” You uttered quickly, turning back to pretend to pay attention to the class.

“Me too. But I don’t understand the weird referencing guide.” He frowned, clicking his pen with his thumb.

“I do.” you said.

“Could you teach me how to use it?” he asked. “I’m a great listener.”

“Somehow I doubt that.” You jested, earning a dramatic scoff.

“And why’s that?” He poked your arm, the action sending an electric spark through the skin.

“I’ve seen how you doze off in the lectures.” You tittered.

“Mmm.” He hummed, leaning back in his chair. “But the only way you’d know that is if you watch me doze off. I may be a bad listener, but what does that make you?”

In love with you, you thought.

“Hyper-aware of my surroundings.” You relayed confidently.

“Somehow I doubt that.” He jabbed back with a sly grin.

“And why’s that?”

“You haven’t noticed the note I’ve written in the margin of your notebook.”

You raised a brow, glancing down to the word messily scribbled there.


Your heart hammered against your rib cage, but you were determined to look casual.

“What about dinner?” You crossed your arms.

“Don’t try that with me.” He pointed his pen to your face. “Your cheeks are red, (Y/n).”

“W-well, your hands are shaking!” You shout-whispered, as the teacher passed.

Kylo looked down at the pen that was wobbling in between his thumb and pointer finger.

“Maybe it’s because I like you. A lot.” He stuffed the pen in his jacket pocket.

You turned your attention to the board, taking notes.

“Maybe I like you too.” You spoke, trying to contain a wide smile while keeping your eyes on the front. “A lot.”

“So what’s your answer?” Kylo asked hopefully, fingering at the pen in his pocket nervously.

“Check your notebook.” You said, turning to face him with a triumphant smile.

On his page there was a tiny yes doodled inside the margin.

2015 was the hottest year on record

via Bloomberg Visual Data

This is what global warming looks like. Record after record after record, broken. The animation below shows the Earth’s warming climate, recorded in monthly measurements from land and sea over 136 years. The bright red line on top shows how 2015 just beat out the previous record—2014—by the biggest margin since modern record keeping began. Fifteen of the 16 hottest years have been in the 21st century.
