“Who is that guy?”
I ask Zoe as we both walk into the class.
“What? Which guy? ”
She raises her brows at me as I take a seat beside her and drop my bag.
“That guy that we saw at the coffee shop earlier, I have never seen him before. ”
I mouth to her and bring out my book.
“Oh, you mean Javier. What do you want with him? ” She raises her brows at me and I roll my eyes before playfully swatting her hand.
“I don’t want anything to do with him. I was just wondering who he is.. He seem weird. ”
I don’t know if that’s even the word to use for him but there’s something about him.. This aura that comes from him. I just can’t explain it.
“Yeah, he can be weird and he’s quite dangerous also. ” She shrugs and bring out her book before staring ahead. There’s something in me that want to know everything about him. Isn’t that strange?
I meant, I know it’s nothing probably but there’s something that he gives off.
“Dangerous like? ”
I raise my brows at her. She’s staring forward but I’m not.. I’m more than determined to find out more about this weird.. Tattooed guy.
“I don’t know. ”
She shrugs. “But that’s what I know and something I was told. He’s dangerous and he can be weird also. Why are you asking? ” She says and I shrug before facing forward. Dangerous and weird?
“I hope it’s not what I’m thinking. ”
She whispers as I bring my face back to her.
“What are you thinking? ”
I almost laugh but we are in a class and it wouldn’t be funny if the professor decide to set his eyes on me.
“Nothing. I just hope you don’t like him or something. He isn’t that type of guy to like. Especially not for someone like you. ”
She stares at me and I roll my eyes.
“That’s funny. I don’t like him, of course I don’t like him. Why would I like someone I just saw once?! ”
I laughed but I try to keep my voice down before the professor really set his eyes on me.
I’m the kind of girl that gets nervous when too much attention is out in me. I prefer staying by the sidelines.
“It’s possible and even if you see him multiple times after this. You can’t spare him another glance, stay away from him. ” She warns and I wonder what she means by that.
“Why should I? ” I mutter and she narrows her eyes at me. “Sorry, I didn’t mean it like that. I mean what’s wrong? Why should I stay away from him. I’m not saying that I won’t but why exactly do you want me to stay away from him?”
“Because I just told you! He’s dangerous.
Well, not like that type of dangerous but he isn’t someone you want to be with. I promise you. ”
It isn’t like I can be with anyone anyways.
I was just curious about him. A betrothed woman is a taken woman. Moms words, not mine.
“I don’t want to be with him. I was just curious. By the way, how do you know him anyways?! ” I raise my brows at her and shifted my gaze from her before looking back at her.
“He’s kind of Beck’s friend. Well they aren’t really friends but they are in their own group so they talk to each other sometimes and Beck told me about him. ” Am I supposed to know who Beck is?
“Who’s Beck? ” I shake my head and she turns to me, scoffing.
“I can’t believe you don’t know who Beck is. I’ve been saying that name since you’ve been here. Beck is my boyfriend! ”
She whisper yells and I nod.
I don’t really pay attention when she’s talking about her boyfriend. That’s the easiest way for me not to think about how I don’t have a boyfriend at nineteen.
“Is he here? I mean does he goes here? ”
I whisper to her and she raises her head from her book.
“That Javier guy. ”
I smile and she shakes her head at me.
I haven’t been seeing him so I wonder whether he goes here.
“Yes, he does. Just came back though cause today is the first day I would be seeing him in campus.
Beck said he travelled or something I don’t know.
Now, can we just get to class please! And get your mind off him! ” She snaps and I roll my eyes before turning stare at the professor.
Oh, my mind is off him already
