Okay, so this turned out longer than I expected…..whoops? Thank you for your submission! I hope you enjoy it <3
Nesta has only been working at this dump of a library
for 3 hours and already realized how badly they needed her help. The book
arrangements were all wrong and don’t even get her started on the study areas.
All the desks had been facing the wall instead of the giant widow in the opposite direction. Were they trying to make these students depressed?
This wouldn’t do.
She immediately lifted the desk closest to her and began to turn it around when her skirt got caught under one of the desk legs.
When she bent down to free her skirt, her foot slipped on a wooden pencil landing her flat on her ass. “Well shit.”
“Oh my, let me help you.”
Nesta didn’t get the chance to get a look at the kind stranger before hands slipped under her arms and lifted her easily off the ground.
“Thank you fo-“ All the wheels in her mind ceased to turn when she beheld the man in front of her.
He wore a crisp white button up shirt with deep gray pants and shoes that looked Italian. His sleeves were messily rolled up to his elbows, and his hair was pulled back to reveal the tattoos on his neck. He smiled and waved a hand in front of his face. Oh crap, was he talking? He chuckled
“Are you new here?”
“Yes. This is my first day.”
“Well in that case welcome to Valerias University.”
It took her too long to realize he was holding his hand out for her to shake.
“Thanks. I’m Nesta.”
“What a beautiful name.”
“Yea well, I didn’t have any say in it, so I can’t take the credit.”
She hadn’t meant to be funny but the handsome god like man’s smile broadened.
“The names Cassian, but my friends call me Cas.”
“Thank you for your help Cassian.”
“Ouch. Shot down.”
“I was hoping you’d refer to me as Cas so I could say that we’re friends.”
“My friendship is not so easily gained.”
“I accept this challenge.” His smile turned to a smirk.
“Well good luck with that. In the mean time I need to change these desks.”
“Riiiiight because that worked out well for you the first time…”
“One thing you may earn the privilege to know about me is that I don’t give up.”
“I like that in a woman.”
“Do you have some sort of job here, or are you only good for flappin your mouth?”
“Oh, I think you’d rather enjoy the multiple things I can do with my mouth.” All he got was an uninterested glare in return *cough*
“I’m a uh- professor here. I teach science.”
“Of course you do, and I’m guessing you teach anatomy?”
“As a matter of fact I do. I wouldn’t mind giving you a tour of the human body if you’re interested….”
“I know the human body quite well thank you very much.”
“Oh I’m sure you do….listen, I’m gonna be over there in the corner by the modern literature at 5:00pm. If you happen to be in the same area I’d love to take you to dinner.”
Nesta kept a face of disinterest and aloofness
“We shall see.” Nesta began to once again move the desks in the opposite direction which was clearly a dismissal. She didn’t have time for cocky bastards who hit on anything with a pulse, but a girl’s gotta eat right?
Nesta was doing some last minute dusting before closing when she heard footsteps against the wooden floor.
“Sorry, did I keep you waiting sweetheart?”
“You’re just lucky I haven’t left yet.”
He took a step closer to her.
“And why didn’t you?”
“Today was my first day. I wanted to make a good impression.”
Two more steps.
“I can assure you that your first impression was more than satisfactory.”
They were less than a foot from each other.
“I’m starving, are you buying me food or not?”
“A woman who gets straight to the point, I like it.”
“What’s the point in wasting time when I can just say what I want?”
He was a breath away now.
“I couldn’t agree more.”
He reached his hand out to brush a strand of hair behind her ear that had fallen loose form her bun.
“May I kiss you Nesta?”
“You barely even know me.”
“I have good instincts….”
She leaned forward in what could be assumed as initiating a kiss.
Their lips one inch from each other.
“You’re going to have to do better than that professor.”
Her lips grazed his cheek as she walked away.
“I’ll meet you outside in five minutes, don’t keep me waiting.”
Cassian shook his head.
He was in deep shit.
Thinking of making a part 2??? Depends on how much attention this gets, so let me know what you think!
