"Obviously."

He wanted to be more to her than just a guy whose number she'd blocked.

"You want another drink?"
I just wanna go out tonight and make my baby proud
“—boy, who’s your baby?”
“girl, if you don’t know by now—”

He asked, and she flashed him a brash smile. “Obviously.”

“So Jeremiah, what did the messages I ignored say? Something stupid and slightly embarrassing I hope.”

"C'mon, then." He reached for her hand without asking, and began to drag her back through the crowd.

"I asked you out for drinks. Then coffee. Then dinner. Then more drinks. And then I probably swore at you, I dunno."

He did know. He had definitely sworn at her. He was pretty sure he'd sent some pictures, too, not because he remembered doing it, but because it seemed like the sort of thing he'd have done.

"It don't matter, anyway," he continued quickly, "'Cause you're here now. With me."

Sort of. It wasn't really like she'd had a choice.

"As if I had a choice." Still, she did not try to stop him as he reached for her hand and instead, simply followed him as they made their way through the crowd.

She had ignored his texts yes, but in that moment Camilla had to admit that she would rather put up with him before having to spend another second with the boy she had been previously talking to, who for the almost entire conversation had flaunt about his, in her opinion uninteresting, academic achievements.

"You could have just called, you know."
it’s such a shame,
She used to be so delightful

"You sayin' you'd've picked up if I called?"

They arrived in the kitchen. It wasn't the same one as the first time they'd met, but it might as well have been, because all student houses seemed to follow the same formula: a pile of dishes in the sink that had been 'left to soak' for two weeks and hadn't been touched since; empty bottles along the windowsill; half-full ones, accompanied by own-brand mixers, on the kitchen table; a faint and weird smell that nobody could quite place.

"'Cause if you are sayin' that, you're lyin'. Rum and coke, right?"

“I’m not lying.” She would have picked the phone, whether she would have accepted or not an invitation to go out for drinks, or coffee, or dinner - was a completely different matter.

At his words, she flashed him a cheeky smile. “Oh, you remembered, how romantic.” She leaned on the counter (avoiding the part that was completely stained by some reddish liquid), and looked at him. “So Jeremiah, now that I’m here with you, what’s the plan?”

She was definitely lying, but pointing this out could only end one way: with her leaving.

He kept his mouth shut and added too much rum into her glass instead. "Well, y'know." He shrugged and unscrewed the cap of the own-brand cola, "You're hard to forget." ...Unlike him, apparently.

"First things first," he handed her the drink and poured himself one to match, "Unblock my number.

11:59pm
same night, same place


Miraculously, he'd managed to keep her all evening, though he was sure that it wasn't so much to do with his own charm as it was to do with the fact that eighty percent of the other guys here were just as bad as, if not worse than, the first guy he'd stolen her from.

"And, like, no offence--"

("THREE!" The countdown to the new year began.)

They sat squeezed into a corner of a sofa that already held too many people. Jeremiah leaned in a little too close. Her eyes, too blue, reminded him of Cecelia's.

("TWO!")

"--but you're, like, the prettiest girl I ever met."

("ONE!")

He kissed her.

juliet, the dice was loaded from the start
and I bet, and you exploded into my heart
I can’t do everythin’ but I’d do anythin’ for you
I can’t do anythin’ ’cept be in love with you

He kissed her.

She kissed him.

(She didn’t know why.)

“And you’re, like,” Her hand lingered on his knee. “such a cliché.”

Against her lips, he mumbled, "Stop talking."

around 11:05am
friday 1 january 2016
jeremiah smallweed's place


When he rolled over, bleary-eyed and with a pounding headache, she was there on the other side of the bed, curled up in a ball and facing away from him.

"Camilla."

He shifted closer, and nudged her bare shoulder where his t-shirt had slipped.

"You want breakfast?"

“Don’t have time.” She mumbled against the pillow, opening one eye to check her phone and immediately putting it down as she saw the at least, 15 notifications from her mother’s messages.

Camilla had 3 hours to get ready and pretend this headache wasn’t killing her before the New Year’s lunch with her family.

She stood up, facing him as she spoke. “So, yeah, gotta leave.”

"What, you're leavin' already?" He pulled himself upright, too quickly. His stomach lurched; he sank slowly back down against the pillow again.

"Stay a bit longer."

“I think it’s pretty obvious,” She said as she put her skirt back on, immediately reaching for the rest of her clothes and heels. “that yes, I’m leaving already?”

She looked at him for a few seconds. “Where’s the bathroom?”

This was a battle he wasn't going to win.

"Down the hall, second door on the left. The hot tap don't work, so don't bother tryin'."

And before she could exit his room, because he was sure that once she left, she wouldn't be coming back in a hurry, "Have dinner with me tomorrow."

“Okay.”

Camilla looked at the restaurant’s entrance door, then back at him, both eyebrows arched. As she spoke, amusement dripping from her lips. “Seriously?”

Such a gentleman he was.

"Well, maybe if you'd agreed the first time instead of blockin' me, I'd've taken you somewhere fancier."

He pulled open the door, "Oh, also, I forgot my wallet. So, you're payin'."

“And when I thought this couldn’t get any more romantic, you outdid yourself.” Camilla stepped inside the place, eyebrows still arched as she looked around - she was rather certain that her small purse was more expensive than all the furniture in that place.

“You know, I don’t even know your surname.”

"Full of surprises, I am."

He nudged her forward into the queue. "Smallweed. Why, you wanna stalk me on Facebook?"

"Hilarious."

Slightly worrying.

"I'm gonna go grab that table by the window. I want the twenty McNuggets sharebox, large fries, large coke." He leaned in to kiss her cheek before she could stop him, and pushed his way back through the queue forming behind them.

about fifteen minutes later


"Took your time, didn't ya?" He reached for the box on the tray that she'd just set down.

"I'm starvin'."

She looked down at her salad and small fries, then back at him and all his food. Well, her food, she had paid for it.

“You’re gross.”
