It's been more than a week since I started tutoring Ryder and he is most definitely a hand full. We've started our tutoring sessions in the library instead of his house just because there were loads of things distracting him there, and since the scary librarian practically hates him, I decided that it'll be better to study in the library, that is what the library's for after all.
"Leish," He said, I ignored him because I was doing some work on some equations.
"Leish," He said again.
"Alei-," I could stand it anymore.
"What?!" I asked in a whisper-yell tone. "What do you want?"
"Can you tell Maureen to fix up some custard puffs next time?"
"Keep it down, won't you, Clark?" The librarian spat before walking away and Ryder sat their, mouth opened and dumbfounded.
"She was the one yelling!" He accused.
"Excuse me, but you were the one being annoying."
"Are you going to the dance next week?" Ali asked.
"Nah, I think I'll pass. Plus I don't have anyone to go with," I said.
"That's bull," She spat. "What about that Ryan guy? He seems cute."
"Ryan? He hardly has any interest in me," I laughed. "He probably doesn't even know who I am."
"I thought everyone knows you," She said.
"People know me because of you, Miss Cheerleader," I sighed.
Then out of nowhere, my phone blasted it's Marimba ringtone. There was no caller ID.
"Who is it?" Ali asked, I responded with a shrug and swiped my phone to answer the call.
"Hello?" I said into the phone.
"Hey, Darling," I rolled my eyes.
Ryder Fucking Clark.
"What do you want? And stop calling me that!" Ali looked at me with confusion written all over her, but I ignored her and walked out of the living room.
"I wanna hang out," He said.
"Now?" I asked. Why the fuck did he want to hang out with me?
"Yes, now. I'll pick you up, darling. I'm almost there anyway," He said and before I could respond, he hung up.
I made my way upstairs to change into something more appealing. I was wearing a large shirt with some shorts for goodness' sake, there's now way I'd go out of the house in them. So I settled with a sweater that hid my butt and a pair of leggings along with a pair of Uggs. It was actually cold out. I did absolutely nothing with my face but I did however braid my hair. It looked like a bird's nest before.
I heard my phone buzz and it was from an unknown number.
From: Unknown Number
I'm outside, darling ;)
I quickly ran downstairs and told Ali to tell Maureen that I'll be out with a friend, without asking any questions she nodded and her focus went back to the television which was playing Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
I let a sigh escape my mouth as I saw Ryder's car parked outside of the gates and went there instead of opening the gates. He shot me a confused look but shrugged if off once I was in the car with him.
"It's nice to see you, Darling."
"Don't get me in trouble, Ryder Clark."
