Nerd Alert! [BoyxBoy]

Alexander isn't your typical nerd. He'll say what he wants, do what he wants, and verbally bash you while doing it. That's what Travis, a jock assigned to be tutored by Alexander, hates most about him.

Confusing feelings, a drunken party, and a month of tutoring was all it took to get Travis to realize he was head over heals for the sharp tongued Alex.

Now, if only he knew where Alex's sarcasm switch was...

ALEXANDER'S POV

My pencil snapped in frustration. I groaned, racking my hands through my hair. Why in the world is Travis' question still bothering me? I thought sighing, trying desperately to calm myself so I could continue with my course sheet.

Looking around I couldn't help missing Chris. He wasn't coming over today. He had to go over to the local library to finish his literature report. I scowled at myself at how accustomed I was to Chris' presence. I'd been living on my own for a while and after the first year my aunt stopped checking in on me.

I just finished sharpening my pencil when my phone buzzed. I dropped the sharpener, stunned at the thought of who on earth would be calling at this time. Chris was in the library, aunt Clarence only called to check on school work and holidays...

"Oh." I muttered looking down at an unknown number. I answered the call quite curious on whom it was.

"Alex!"

"Travis?" I muttered in surprise.

"Dude, I really need your help in that maths assign..."

"How did you get my number?" I asked, a little stunned. I heard a frustrated sigh at the other end before the answer.

"Come on what are phone books for?" Travis asked, his voice straining. My eyes widened in surprise.

"You know how to use a phone book... Wait you know my full name?" I asked, even more stunned.

"Come on, I put one and two together, If your aunt's Miss Smith then you could be Alexander Smith..."

"You're capable of simple reasoning?"

"Shut up already! I need your help on my maths assignment, okay? I tried asking you during our section but you blew me of." Travis pleaded from the other side of the line.

About the blowing of thing, it was quite true... and he did ask.

"What's the assignment based on?" I asked, rubbing my eyes. I do have a lot of work to do but I guess I could help him for ten minutes.

"Circular geometry," Travis murmured from the other end. I scowled. That's what his wasting my time with, Circular geometry?

"Have you even tried looking at the theorems?" I asked, bringing my hand to my forehead.

"They're pretty long..."

"I'll send you a simplified version; just send me your email address," I said, cutting the call before he could argue. I spent the next ten minutes on my course work before I got Travis' email. I sent the simplified theorems in hope I could finally do my course work in peace. I have to make it clear to him tomorrow; I'm his history tutor, not his maths tutor.

 As I prayed that there would be no more calls from Travis my phone made an odd 'ting' sound it'd never made before. Picking it up I saw the not so familiar BBM icon with a green dot saying one at its side. I narrowed my eye at the icon, not at all remembering a time I installed the application.

'Sky.' I thought, my mind going back to the cafeteria where she'd been messing with my phone. My brows farrowed, not out of anger at sky but for the fact that the school wifi could even carry a download considering how many people use...

'Ping.'

It made that annoying sound again changing the one to a two. I rolled my eye Deciding to see what exactly sky was going on about.

SKY:

7:36 pm

Hey! What are you doing?

7:38 pm

Alex?

I read her messages over and over; unsure what exactly she wanted me to answer. I should be embarrassed over the fact that I haven't exactly indulged myself in such empty conversation before. (forgive me if I don't see what exactly I'm meant to be embarrassed about.)

ALEX:

7:42 pm

School work.

I finally sent, quite sure there was no way she could answer back. The almost immediate ping set my brain of on minor shock.

SKY:

7: 43 pm

Regular school work, or advanced nerd work?

I read the text unsure if it were a complement or an insult.

SKY:

7:45 pm

It's a joke.

Typing...

I'm calling you a genius if anything.

ALEX:

7: 47 pm

Well, that's nice to hear.

I sent back, folding the back of my course work. It could wait another day couldn't it?

SKY:

7:50 pm

I'm guessing you don't take a joke lightly do you?

Typing...

Goes to show you I'm learning stuff about you aren't I.

I smiled at that, not only was she careful with her jokes she was also mindful of her text talk. Or that could just be the way she texted every day, an even bigger plus.

ALEX:

7:53 pm

Why try so desperately to befriend me?

I sent actually waiting for a reply.

SKY:

Typing...

I've been surrounded by the same sort of people for a while, a little change can't hurt, could it?

The side of my mouth twitched at the counter psychology, Sky was probably smarter than she gave herself credit for. I closed my eyes wondering about the last time I took a look at the school files.

ALEX:

7:55 pm

Wise answer.

I sent back before looking out the window, it was starting to get a bit dark, I wonder if Chris is even going to come over today.

SKY:

7:57 pm

There's a house party at Sam's this Saturday, you should come.

ALEX:

You mean that crazy petite little she devil's party? Why not.

You must probably be wondering why I accepted her request. Well if I'm as outdated as I am about my targets where else could I possible get more info than that party?
