It was a rainy Monday morning, the worst kind of weather for the beginning of a new week of school.
"Another day of hell." Evie-Mae sighed, sleepily rolling her eyes.
She slowly got put of bed and dragged herself to the shower, lazily turning on the water. She slowly slipped out of her pajamas, and got in.
She soon woke up, and finished up in the shower. She wrapped herself up in a towel, and walked back into her room. She dressed herself in white tights and an oversized denim button-down. She tied her hair in a messy bun and slipped her little brown booties on.
She put on her daily essentials, and soon head out for class. She walked down the stairs, grabbing her umbrella and coat. She opened the door, and closed it behind her.
She made her way to University, passing the usual bakery she ate at. She didn't want breakfast today. She will just buy something at the coffee cart in front of the main building.
She made to school with twenty minutes to spare, so she walked to the coffee cart, ordering coffee and a chocolate chip muffin.
She sat at a bench underneath the roof of the entrance and sipped on her coffee. She took out her Algebra notes, and studied for her Algebra final.
"Hey." A voice said, "May I sit here?"
Evie-Mae looked up, and peered into honey brown eyes. It was a man about her age. She's never seen him before, but quickly accepted his company and scooted over.
"Sure." She replied, putting her food in her lap, on top of her notes.
"I'm Liam." The man said, sticking out his hand to shake.
"Evie-Mae; most people call me Eve, though." She returned the favor.
"It's nice to meet you, Evie-Mae." He smiled, his eyes twinkling.
"A pleasure. How come I have not seen you around before?" She asked, biting into her muffin.
"Well, I'm taking up mechanics. That's a different part of the University, which is down the street from here." Liam answered.
"Oh, okay. That's really interesting." Evie-Mae said.
"Yeah, how about you?" Liam asked, admiring her features.
"I'm taking up journalism." She replied.
"That's really good. You should write about me, one day." Liam teased.
"Hmm, maybe." She responded, a chuckle leaving her mouth.
She really liked Liam. He was such a nice person. He was kind. He had such warm, sweet brown eyes and soft brown hair gelled into a small quiff.
Students had soon approached the main doors, signaling that class was going to soon begin. Evie-Mae finished her breakfast, and slowly started to pack up so she can make it to her Journalism class.
"Well, it was really nice meeting you, Evie-Mae. I have to head to Engineering." Liam had said, getting up from his seat on the bench.
"Yes, it was pleasure." Evie-Mae agreed, standing up as well.
"Can we maybe text sometime?" Liam asked.
"Sure." Evie-Mae answered, "I'll write down my number."
Liam stuck out his hand, "Here, you can write it on my hand."
She took a pen from her bag and put wrote her number on his hands. She then pulled away and waved at him before walking to her Journalism class.
Hours later, the school day was over, and Evie-Mae was just walking out of her last class of the day, Liberal Arts.
She walked out of the main lobby, and made her way down the sidewalk in front of the building. As she walked towards the main road, she recognized Zayn's car.
She saw Zayn get out of the car, and walk towards her, from the corner of her eye.
"Eve!" Zayn called out to her.
She couldn't just run him off; he would find her. She just slowed her pace so Zayn can reach her.
"Hey." Evie-Mae replied, looking down at her brown booties.
"Can we go out for dinner? My treat." Zayn asked, desperate for her attention.
He softly cupped her cheek, turning her head to face his.
"I-I don't know, Zayn. I really need to start studying for my Algebra final. It's next Monday and the content is very difficult." Evie-Mae said, trying to get an excuse to get home early.
"Please, babe. Just one time, and I'll let you study all you want. I just want to see you one more time." Zayn begged, "I can't get enough of you."
Evie-Mae sighed. She felt bad because she had been avoiding him, but she had a reason to. She did not want to fall for him. There was no reason to, because boys break your hearts. She needed to focus on school.
"Okay, but only for an hour." Evie-Mae agreed.
Zayn smiled, "That's all I need."
