The girl next door. Down the hall and two doors to the right. Bbrae AU
Garfield Logan really considered the notion of getting new friends. He knew they meant well, but seriously if they set him up on one more awful date, he’d kill them in their sleep. He had just gotten home from an evening out with a girl that his friend Kory had set him up with, an Australian named Toni. She was nice until one of the guys at the college bar started hitting on her, during their date mind you, and she karate kicked his ass outta there.
Sexy, well hot as hell, but not what he was looking for in a woman. She was pretty though with a curvy figure, pale skinned, black hair with red frosted tips, and full pouty red lips. Again she was fun and pretty, but not what he was looking for. In fact he wasn’t sure if he even liked the pale skinned look. The dark hair was cool though.
They said their goodbyes and he headed back to his apartment, silently cursing his friends for being so nice. But honestly they were really trying to help him get over his last girlfriend. He shuddered at the thought as the elevator traveled up to his floor.
“I just want to go home, flop on to my couch, and forget about women. for the rest of the night.” He said to himself once the elevator stopped at his floor. He threw his key into the lock and opened the door preparing himself to veg the rest of the day away.
“Well what’s taking so long?!”
He slammed the door shut and took a few minutes to register what he had heard. He quickly scanned the door of the apartment. 1901. Yup this was his apartment. Then why on Earth was there a woman yelling in there? Did Vic have someone over?
He cautiously stepped back into his apartment, finding a petite and irate young woman using his landline telephone in the middle of his living room. She was a small little thing, pale fair skin and jet black hair with a pair of stunning blue eyes. But he noticed all of this AFTER he realized she was wearing nothing but a towel wrapped around her torso instantly making his mouth run dry.
She continued to yell into the phone, but glanced in his direction when she heard him step in, but motioned for him to wait a second while she was on the phone. “I’ve been waiting for thirty minutes … Please just come soon.” Without a goodbye she slammed the phone down then turned to finally face him. Her frustration with whatever was happening was quickly replaced by red hot embarrassment which was evident by every inch of her revealed flesh turning a faint pink. “Oh god I am so, SO sorry for this. Your probably wondering what the hell is going on huh?”
As he fought to keep his eyes on hers, and responded. “I’m mildly curious.”
She clutched at the towel to keep it from slipping as she approached him to shake his hand with his. The more primal part of him wishing for the towel to slip just as inch. “I’m Raven I just moved in across the hall, and as I was taking a shower when someone knocked on my door, and I thought it was the movers with the rest of my stuff, so I ran to get the door, but it turned out to be someone knocking on another apartment, but when I stepped out into the hall, I, uh, locked myself out.” She gave a nervous laugh that he found absolutely adorable. “But Luckily for me your roommate was home.”
