I don’t really know what this is. I saw a reddit post and it inspired me to write this. So, here ya go.
Summary: Virgil forgot to lock his door. A stranger lets himself in.
Virgil was half asleep in his dorm room, all senses lost on him as he tried to shut down completely. Because of this, he didn’t happen to hear the door open and shut. Or the clanging of a jacket hitting the floor or the dull thuds of shoes falling to the floor. He did however, feel when someone climbed into bed with him. His eyes snapped open and he found himself staring into the eyes of a complete stranger. The stranger’s eyes were as wide as his. It took a few seconds for Virgil to get his body to work.
“The heck!?” Virgil sat up and backed up on the bed, while the stranger yelped and proceeded to fall off. He sprung back up with a shocked and confused look.
“This isn’t…Oh my gosh, I am so sorry!” The stranger had his hands out in front of him and he suddenly looked sheepish. Virgil managed to turn on the bedside lamp, in order to get a better look at the guy. He had brown hair and hazel eyes, much like Virgil’s own and had on a…prince outfit?
It took a second for Virgil to register that the dude was still talking.
“I didn’t realize, it just, this used to be my dorm and I must have been on autopilot or something, I am terribly sorry and–”
“Why are you wearing a prince outfit?” Was the only thing Virgil could think to say, thanks to his still half-asleep mind. Princey-a nickname Virgil’s mind just made up-blinked at him in confusion and he looked down at himself.
“Oh, I just came from a rehearsal. It’s…been a long night.” He yawned right then and Virgil finally saw the bags under his eyes. This guy was probably more tired than he was. Not to mention more out of it, if the whole ‘walking into a stranger’s dorm’ was anything to go by. Of course, he did forget to lock it. Which he never did, so he must have been pretty out of it too.
Anyway, he felt kinda bad for the guy.
“Look, I’ll just get out of your hair and let you sleep. I’m sorry again.” As Princey started to leave, something made Virgil grab his arm before he could. Princey looked down in surprise and turned back toward him. Virgil blinked sleepily at him.
“Where’s your dorm?” It seemed to take Princey a while to register the question.
“The other side of campus.” Virgil sighed and scooted over. He looked at Princey expectantly as he was given a confused stare. Virgil rolled his eyes.
“Look, you’re clearly out of it. I’m clearly out of it. I don’t feel good about letting you walk all the way over there. So either get in bed or you’re sleeping on the floor.” Princey gave him an owlish look before carefully getting back into bed. Virgil heard Princey sigh in contentment when his head hit the pillow.
“Thank you.” He heard from next to him and he mumbled into his pillow as his heavy eyes began to close.
“Yeah, night Princey.”
“Princey?” But Virgil was already asleep.
