Imagine you are at your first over uni party. You have been invited to a few but always choose to stay at home and study so you were surprised that people actually still invted you. But when you showed up you got a little too much attention than you wanted. Apparently there has been a lot of talking about you and what a geek you were because you had stayed at home all the times. Not many of the drunk people had a lot of nice things to say and when you stood at the drinks table in the frat house you were met with a lot of yelling about what a “fucking nerd” you were. You moved to another room to try and find someone from your class but you were only met with more negativity. You ended up escaping outside in the backyard. You were thinking about leaving but you had to go through the whole party to get out the other side. You hugged your legs close to your chest when the door opened behind you. You closed your eyes and prepared for the hurtful things the person might say. You tried not to cry. But the person said nothing, just sat down next to you. You looked who this might be but it was a unknown guy. He had friendly eyes, darkish skin and black hair under a cap. He smiled at you when your eyes met.
“So you escaped out here?” He suddently said.
“Ermh… yeah.” You didn’t know what to say to this stange guy.
“Do you need me to kill someone for you?” He suddently said and smiled yet again.
“I’m just kidding. I just heard what the people in there said to you. You are not a nerd just because you choose to make your homework. That’s just common sense.” He said winking at you, before he took a sip of the drink he had brought with him. You didn’t say anything. You just stared at the strange guy that actually used his time to talk to you, instead of jumping around on the table at the party inside.
“What about we get out of here?” He suddently said and stood up again.
“Wh-what?” He reached out his hand for you to take it. You took it. It was strange but somehow you felt like the guy was different. He straight up ask if he should murder someone for you.
“We could find somewhere a bit more quiet? Like burger king or something? I’m really just at these parties because i live here, so i may use you as an excuse to get away from here. Is that okay?” He asked and pulled you up.
“Ermh yeah. Of course.” You said with a small smile.
“Did that come out wrong? It’s not just because i want to get out of here. You seem nice. I have seen you around campus before you know.” He kept talking to you while dragging you through the party, never letting go of your hand. It was kind of awkward at first, but not a single person said anything to you. When you were out on the other side and the door was closed behind you, he finally let go of your hand.
“I’m Calum by the way.” He finally gave away his name.
“I’m y/n.” You said back which made him smile and nod.
“Y/n.” He said like he was testing the sound of your name.
It took a couple of seconds where he didn’t look at you, but then he looked up with a smile.
“I like it!” He stated. “Let’s go.” You say to cover up a little laughing at his silliness.
“Ladies first.” Calum grins at you and gestures towards the streets. Shaking your head with a slightly more obvious laugh, you walk in the direction he had gestured for you to go.
“You’re the one who knows the way though.” You tell him as he walks up beside you on the road.
“Guess I will lead the way then.” He proclaimed, walking next to you, out into the night and leaving the party behind.
