The ‘I’m trying to study for this stupid exam and that guy keeps staring at me from three tables over’ AU

That was the prompt! I have no idea where I found it though! (Although I think it was from thetourguidebarbie AGGGESSSS ago (but I’m sorry for tagging you if it wasn’t))… I just save prompts I see when peeps are like ‘free-for-all prompts’ or whatever, and then I’m like well whatever. (BTW this is Marina Abramović - she simulataneosly fascinates me and freaks me out) 

ANYHEY! Enjoy.

“Are you sure it’s going to work?”

“Puh-lease, Klaus, I’ve known her since the sandbox. It may take a while, but if you pay her overt amounts of attention, you’ll annoy her and she’ll bite. Stems from her craving attention, never getting it, so when she does she tends to get a little antsy.”

“Whatever you say,” Klaus said tentatively.


Caroline was frantic. As a second year, she’d just finished her third year biology exam, even though it went fine, she was still panicking. She had one to go and it was intermediate physics. Caroline love physics, but sometime the formulae just kicked her butt.

She sat down in the vast library, and tucked a stray hair behind her ear. It was business time. She was going to go through all her unit notes today so, by tomorrow, she would be ready to do practice papers.

Caroline was born to study. She was diligent, and thorough. She could concentrate for hours at a time with caffeinated aid. But today, she just couldn’t focus. There was a funny prickling on the back of her neck. She kept shifting in her seat, trying to get comfortable. After what felt like hours (but was really only 30 minutes) Caroline looked up, trying desperately to refocus her brain.

As she looked up, she caught the eye of a crazy attractive guy sitting three tables away. He had dirty blonde curls on top of his perfectly dimpled face. His rosy lips were perfect kissing size, and the stormy grey-blue eyes seemed to gaze into her, straight to her soul.

She always loved attention, so she gave the guy a flirty smile, but she then went back to her study. She really needed to get through this.

The little flirt seemed to be enough to put her mind at ease, and she managed to plough through a good hour and a half of work.


Klaus picked up his phone and dialled a number.

“Jesus, what do you want?”

“It’s been nearly two hours, and she’s only noticed once.”

“I told you, it’ll take a while. Give it another hour.”

“You better be right, or my brother will find his girlfriend kidney-less.”

“Yeah, yeah, Klaus. Always with the kidney threats.”


Before she knew it, Caroline was getting antsy again. She looked up and the same guy from before still staring at her. Caroline went back to her books, but peaked looks at him every few minutes.

After another hour, however, Caroline was utterly fed up with his little routine. So decided to storm over there and cause a fuss.
