“I invited our neighbors to dinner,” you informed your roommate who was busy preparing food in the kitchen. You joined her and set the table for four people.
“You did what?” Hana looked at you suspiciously. It wasn’t like you to invite someone over for a meal, especially not your neighbors. You barely exchanged words with the people who lived in this apartment, apart from an obligatory hello and goodbye.
“Well, his mother brought us gifts after all and I bumped into him earlier.”
“Is he the son of some rich CEO or why are you being so nice?” She laughed at you as she filled the content from the pan onto a plate. You had been friends for a long time, so she knew you all too well. Every of your actions had a motive. You planned ahead and you wouldn’t do anything reckless, especially not if it came to people who you didn’t know. You would give you all for your loved ones, but with strangers, you preferred to mind your own business and not to get involved with them.
“No, but he kinda sheltered me from the rain and I don’t want to owe him anything,” you shrugged your shoulders simply. There it was. Your motive. You always made sure to repay all the favors you had received. You hated to be indebted to anyone.
“Ok, but I only cooked for two.” She remarked while placing the plates filled with side dishes into the middle of the table.
“Yeah, but whenever you cook there are always leftovers,” you laughed.
Not shortly after the bell rang which made you jump a bit in surprise. You hated the sound of the bell. It was too high-pitched for your liking. You thought about changing it a few times, but you never got around to do so. Putting the chopsticks down, you hurried to the door and opened it for them.
Everything that goes up must come down; you can bet those pillows had the ride of their lives though! And even Papyrus can admit his brother’s shortcuts come in handy–at least when they’re not enabling his lazy ways!
I’m going back to a regular Thursday update schedule now! So Chapter Three will begin next week–it’s a change of pace from these last few chapters, but I think you guys will like it quite a bit. ;D

A/N: Mr. Holland will be updated Tuesday, Thursday, & Saturdays for now. I do attend college so if I don’t update on time, know I’m probably studying or working on HWxx
Yes Louis Tomlinson is your Roomie ^
Let’s get started xx
Taking a sip of your tea you rest the mug back down. Your fingers clicked against the keyboard as you typed a new document. It needed to be done by this evening and you knew you could finish it. After what happened at the hospital you were in higher spirits. Seeing Jaelynn smile like that warmed your soul.
Tom being the cause of her smile made you admire him even more. You don’t know what Marie was talking about he truly has a good side to him. The way he acted around kids was so natural. Moving your mouse to the plus adding another tab you click the search bar. Typing in ‘Tom Holland visiting Hospital kids’ and hitting enter after.
The screen loads showing tons of videos on Youtube. Scrolling through you click on one of them. Looking at Tom then vs now he looks practically the same. Wondering if he sold his soul to the Devil to look young. He’s handsome without even trying who are you kidding?
Apparently wherever he filmed he would stop by a hospital to see the kids. The videos you watched made your heart melt. When he pulled off his mask in front of a teenage girl her reaction was priceless.
“Woah you’re really cute!”
Smiling at the video admiring how much Tom gave back as a celebrity. Still giving back now with The Holy Trinity Foundation. A loud ding fills the air making you snap back to reality. Searching your desk you locate your phone picking it up. Looking at the text you quickly open it and respond.
Bitch this place is fancy…
What’s your office number?
Just come to the second to last floor, Mr. Holland’s home from home penthouse is on the top floor. Ask the woman at the desk and she’ll point to his office cause I’m literally right next to his office.
See you soon love xx Can’t wait to hear about your first day so far xx
Setting your phone down to the side you get back to work. The office phone rings loudly making you pick it up immediately. Raising it to your ear there was a brief silence. Doing your answering the phone line they finally answer.
“Hey this is Jacob Batalon, is Tom in his office?”
“Yes sir, he’s currently working on signing some papers I can patch you through” you say pressing the number one button on the option sending it to Tom. Resting the phone back down you look back at your computer screen.
Looking over at time in the corner of the screen you’re wondering where Louis is. Rolling your eyes because he probably got lost. Typing for another five minutes you stop when you hear a knock on your door. Getting up from your chair you walk over opening the door.
“I’m here, you have so many attractive people in this office.. I had a chat and took some pictures with people, sorry love” he gives you a kiss on the cheek before heading inside your office. Turning around you close the door eyeing the bag he was holding. You were starving and needed food before your stomach roared like the kraken.
Louis sets the bag on the ground taking a seat across from you. Taking out boxes he sets yours down in front of you and his where he’s sitting. Placing a pair of chopsticks on your box he does the same with his. Pulling out two tea bottles he hands yours over. Opening it up the smell of green tea relaxes you.
“Soooo, what’s it like working for the legend himself?” Louis asks opening up his box of sushi. Breaking the chopsticks so they split you place them in your hands.
“Actually quite lovely to be honest.. he took time out of his morning today to surprise Jaelynn in the hospital” picking up a roll you lightly dip it into the sauce.
“He actually went to see her? that’s amazing, she loves Spider-Man”
“I know she does.. she’s jealous that I moved in with you years ago cause you have all the cool superhero stuff littered around” you were lucky that you became friends with Louis ages ago. Jaelynn loves hanging out with his son. Right now his son is currently with his mum for the week and Louis’s been sad.
“I bet she would love a visit from you, maybe read her a comic like you used to?” his face perking up at your suggestion.
“We have to talk about this though, is he just as good looking in person? Any man would be look envy with him.. he looks so young for his age.. I look like age punched me ten years into the future” he acts dramatically putting his hand to his head leaning back.
“Louis shut up you idiot” you let out a loud laugh at how he’s acting. Sometimes you wonder if he’s just still a child.
The door next to you opens making your pause your movements. Setting the sushi back down you turn to see Mr. Holland in the doorway. His eyes looking between you and Louis. You nervously look over at Louis who had a prominent smile on his face. The silence was killing you.
“I didn’t know you were having a -“
“boyfriend, hey I’m Louis Tomlinson.. probably heard of me, I was in a famous boy band called One Direction”
“It ended so clearly I haven’t heard of you, well you and your boyfriend have a lovely time” he turns around closing the door a little harder than normal.
“Fuck you Tomlinson, why the hell did you say that?!” you point your chopsticks over at him almost wanting to stab him with them.
“You should have seen the look he gave me… he’s into you babe” his laughter filling the air making your cheeks turn pink.
“Now he’s going to th-“
“He’s rude saying that to me, I’m Louis Tomlinson.. bitch” he huffs out running his fingers through his hair pouting before putting a piece of sushi in his mouth.
“You’re such a handful.. I don’t know how I put up with you”
“You do because I’m your best friend and cause I got you that Coach bag sitting right there” he points over to your bag hanging behind you.
“He wouldn’t like that now would he?” a smirk not leaving his lips.
“Mr. Holland I finished the papers you wanted me to finish” setting the papers down he looks up at you. The tension growing in the air making you gulp nervously.
“Is he really your boyfriend?” he asks setting the papers aside in a tray. You step back nervously as he stands up.
“No he isn’t Mr. Holl-“
“It’s Tom, please call me Tom” his brown eyes looking a shade darker. Your heart beat was raising erratically.
“Louis isn’t my boyfriend we just live together” your chest tightening because that sounds just as bad.
“You live with him?”
“I couldn’t afford a place of my own and Louis is a family friend and has been letting me live with him..”
“So you need a place of your own then?” Tom stands in front of you then leans slightly against the desk. His arms were crossed over his chest and you couldn’t help but see how the shirt clung to his biceps.
“I’m fine Tom, I’m saving up now thanks to you helping out with Jaelynn..”
“Stay at my penthouse upstairs” your eyes widening His penthouse? Why would he offer for you to stay there? Maybe he doesn’t like you like living with Louis.
“I couldn’t possibly stay there Mr. Holland..”
“You will stay there.. plus being here you’re closer to the hospital… I can order a moving service to move your stuff in the guest room there”
“But don’t you live there too?” You ask looking at him as his lip swipes across his lower lip quickly.
“I do but only when I have late nights so it will be all yours, now I’m not going to say no because you have these files now to do and you’ll be here over night” He unfolds his arms reaching for a file. Sticking out his hand he hands you the thick file.
“Y-yes sir..” your eyes wide from the thickness of the file, holy fuck this was a lot of paper work.
“Come get me when you’re finished and I’ll show you around the penthouse” turning around he returns to his chair going straight onto his computer. His eyes focused as he started typing quickly.
Walking into your office you stressfully plop the file down onto your desk. Leaving you go and make some coffee for the long night ahead. Once you’re back you set up a playlist to listen to while you work. Your fingers typed as quickly as they could transferring the files manually into the system. Typing side notes on what could have been improved or what things were lacking in the company.
Hours went by as you tried keeping your eyes open. Minutes felt like ages as they ticked by slowly. Every time you blinked your eyes hurt even more. You were three cups of coffee in and your hands felt jittery. Backspacing on the error you just made you finish the last paper you had to do.
Turning your computer off you stretch your arms over your head. A button coming undone form your top exposing more of your chest. Not giving a single fuck at this point you pick up the file of completed work. Standing up you feel the blood rush to your legs and let out a sigh of relief after sitting for so long. Picking up your phone you see a spam of messages from Louis.
Locking your phone so the screen turns black you stick it in your purse. Once you have your purse on, you then head to the door opening it. Stepping through you see Mr. Holland tapping his pencil against his chin. He turns his head to look at you with a surprised look on his face. Sticking out the file you let out a little yawn.
“Alright love, lets get you upstairs.. you look like you might pass out from exhaustion” he takes the files from you setting them down. Walking next to you he places his hand on the small of your back.
The two of you lock your office doors before heading down the hallway. Once down the hallway you turn the corner towards the elevator. Associates looking at the two of you with raised brows. Mr. Holland looks over at them making their heads turn away from you two. The elevator dings opening the doors signaling to walk in.
The ride up the next floor was dead silent. A buzzing sound goes off making the elevator stop. Mr. Holland reaches into his pocket pulling out a key. He sticks the key into the hole that was next to the buttons and turns the key.
The elevator doors open revealing a gorgeous foyer. Your eyes taking in the beautiful surroundings. The glass windows surrounding showed the city lights that immediately caught your attention.
Stepping into the living you turn around in a slow circle gazing at everything. Looking back at Tom to see him smiling at you. Blushing from how stupid you must have looked. You’ve never been in a home that looked so extravagant. He walks over taking your hand giving it a small tug.
A small preview of additional art assets being made for Written in Light vol. 1. Most of what we have here is still in the sketch phase, and will end up being modified & completed as we vectorize the line art - and we will be adding color, obviously!
Look out for another update from us this Thursday or Friday. We may have a much larger preview to show than just a few samples of art assets ;)
