15. An Unwelcome Guest

It was seven o'clock the next morning, and there was a knock at our door.

Now, this may seem like a simple occurence, but it was early. Who in their right mind would be roaming around the Academy when the sky was still dark and there was still sleep to be had? (Liz and I were up, but that was because we had an extra revision session at seven thirty.)

Bex groaned and rolled over, gesturing for Macey to open the door. Macey stretched her perfect arms and rubbed her eyes before fumbling for the doorknob.

"Oh... hi," she said, in what I noticed to be a rather seductive tone.

Liz and I were sharing the bathroom mirror, and I was too occupied trying to make my fringe stay put to notice who the mystery guest was. But out of the corner of my eye, I saw Bex get out of bed, which made me very curious. Rebecca Baxter has never been known to get up a second before she had to. I went to investigate.

"Bex, what's going on-" I started, but was stopped by the sight of Rick standing in our room.

Okay, the Gallagher Academy is for girls. I was pretty certain that no boy had ever entered this suite (which was for girls), especially when said girls are wearing pyjamas. Sure, Macey's hair miraculously wasn't sleep crumpled, and Bex's skin was gorgeous and glowing, but let's just said that sleep doesn't do wonders for my looks.

"What are you doing here?" I said dumbly, tugging at my pyjama top.

"New student," he said coolly. And then he winked at me. Macey and Bex's eyes were wide with jealousy, and sure, Rick was gorgeous, but for all I know he could be here for all the wrong reasons.

"Well, we'll be glad to show you around after breakfast, so if you could just go back to where you came from..." I tailed off helplessly.

"Nice place," he said, making himself comfortable on my bed and flicking through my revision notes. (the cheek!) "How long have you girls lived here?" he said, picking up a bottle of my perfume and sniffing it appreciatively. I glared at him, but he just smiled coyly, much to my annoyance.

Liz had appeared from the bathroom, wide eyed at the sight of Mr Solomon's son amongst us, seeming perfectly at ease.

"About five years," she squeaked, adjusting her ponytail. Rick opened my chest of drawers next to my bed, helping himself to my stash of M&M's.

"Hey!" I said, reaching over to swipe the bag. "Now get out of here."

Rick shook his head. "Revision session at seven thirty for CoveOps, right? I thought you could show me the way."

"Sorry, but I'm going with Liz," I said firmly, glancing over at my friend. Bex nudged Liz in the ribs, prompting her to reply.

"Erm, actually, I might head down to the library. You go ahead with Rick," she said, biting back a smile.

I am so going to kill you, I thought, shooting Liz a glare as Rick smiled triumphantly.

"It's a date!" Rick declared, opening the door for me extravagantly. 

"I am quite capable of opening a door by myself, thank you," I snapped, gathering my textbooks and pushing past him.

"Hard to get, huh?" he smirked, following behind me.

"Good luck!" Macey called. I was definitely going to need it.
