Hi. This was written by me and my friend, K. L. Andrews. It is written from two points of views; Teresa's and Lexi's. The POVs will alternate by chapter. I write as Teresa, and K. L. Andrews writes as Lexi. So, I wrote this chapter, the next was my friends chapter.
Side note: There is some playful banter between Teresa and Lexi. Italics in Teresa's POV represent Lexi (K. L. Andrews) talking, italics in Lexi's chapter represent Teresa (Me) talking. Enjoy!
Love, Life, and University
Chapter 1 (Teresa)
Hi, My name is Teresa. Me and my friend Lexi are in University. We go to CSU California State University). Lexi wants to be an artist, and I want to be a musician (I play multiple instruments). We are from England, London, specifically. We live on Fleet Street. Lexi and I are roommates (Though, I like to think of it as in-mates. College is hell). We're in our third year. So far, this year is okay. Last year and the year before was hell. You see, we had a slight problem with a certain guy named Derek. Derek Lake. Derek started off with Jane (ew), but that was before we met him. He broke up with her the summer before we all started at CSU. Jane (mind my language) is a complete idiot who didn't get that fact that she was a needy, self centered, abnoxious, rude, clingy, insensitive loser that didn't understand that Derek had broken up with her. Prat!
Pretty much from our first day at CSU, Lexi was with Derek and I was with Derrin. May I cut in? No, go away Lexi. It's not your turn yet. Oh come on! No! Please? You'll get your chapter later. Oh fine! But I'm not happy with it. Whatever, anyways where was I? Derrin. I wasn't asking you. Anyway, so I met Derrin my first day. He seemed sweet. You were so wrong. Oh Lexi, do shut up. Don't say another word. Another word... ha ha! Moving on... Derrin SEEMED sweet (he wasn't). Sorry, Lexi just died. What! No! Uh yep. Back to the story. Whatever deadface. Anyway, as I was saying I met him in a dark alleyway. No, no, no! Just kidding! Just kidding! I'd hope so, I'll be quite now (she raised a pillow... ow!) Ahh, now that's better. Lexi decided to, uh, take a little nap (the pillow was only decorative and made out of plastic. Don't ask why we, by that I mean I, bought it.) I met Derrin in class, music class. He asked me out, and we went on a date to an expensive restaurant. I just re-killed Lexi because she didn't save me any cheesecake went she went away on vacation! You can't send cheesecake across the border, and it was expensive. By the way, you didn't re-kill me, and when you hit me with the plastic pillow I passed out for a few minutes. Yes you can! Countries do it all the time. It's called exporting! Gosh, haven't you ever been in grade six? Lexi... Deadface... I want cheesecake! Back to the story. Okay! Fine! Whateva! So, after dinner he invited me back to his dorm. So what did ya do in his dorm? Shut up. I'm getting there. From now on, when you talk out of turn, I'm putting a line through whatever you say. Got it? Good. When we got to his dorm, (Before I tell you, let me say that I am not proud of it.) Oooh Told you I would. Okay, I get your point. He told me to take a seat and he'd be back with some drinks. Dun, dun, dun! When he came back, he wasn't carrying water, like I had expected. He was carrying a wine bottle. I was fooled by his good looks and I drank. The wine was bitter, but it went straight to my head. After a few sips I was pretty dizzy... and I'm not sure I want to continue. Come on! Tell me! I'm your best friend. I deserve to know. Fine! By midnight we were (It wasn't anything too bad, but I'm still embarassed) making out. What happened next? I went back to mine and Lexi's dorm around 2:00 AM. Lexi was asleep (thank god!). So, I staggered on over to my bed and plopped down. Within a minute–no, two seconds I was asleep.
When I woke up the next morning, two things happened. One, I had a wicked hangover. Two, I found out it was beer, not wine (But, seriously, who puts beer in a wine bottle?). After that, Lexi and I went out for breakfast. I quickly brushed my brown hair into a ponytail and we left. The breakfast sucked. Okay, you're clearly not getting the point of me putting a line through what you say. The breakfast sucked. I've noticed that when some people get drunk and do something they'll regret, it's rather awkward to see the person that they did that something with. Derrin was at the breakfast place we went to. At last! Lexi won't be talking for a while! She's in class. Anyway, Derrin saw me and came over. "Hey!" he said cheerfully. "Hey." I muttered, not so cheerfully. (What? I still had a major hangover.) "Hi!" Lexi chirped, way louder than necessary. I glared at her. "Have a seat." she said to Derrin. Derrin nodded and sat down next to me. No, I wasn't even the least bit mad at him. I still thought he was extremely cute, so I did what any girl would do if they had an extremely cute boyfriend; I kissed him... on the cheek (I wasn't going to kiss him in public yet. I wasn't ready). He put his arm around me. Lexi was very quiet (for once).
After we ate, we walked around for a little bit before Lexi whispered in my ear "Oh come on Teresa! Actually kiss him!" I stared at her for a moment or two before replying "Fine." I looked over at Derrin. He was so cute. His eyes poured into mine. "You have such beautiful eyes." he said. I smiled. I leaned in and gave him a quick kiss. We kept walking. While we walked, we talked. Derrin told us a bit about himself. Lexi and I told him about ourselves. Around noon I told them I had to go. I had a job interview (all I will say about that is I did not get the job, and I'm no longer allowed to go into a certain department store.) He was so not right for you. Oh look! Lexi's back! Just... uh... give me a minute. Okay, Lexi has gone on a little 'trip'. So we won't be hearing from her until her chapter. Me and Derrin went on a few dates (more than a few. More like 30). He seemed great until... Well, I was ready to say 'I love you', to be honest I thought I did love him. I thought I'd found my one true love, my soul mate, the one I would marry and spend the rest of my life with. I was on my way to his dorm... more on that later. There's another part of this story that you need to hear; the Lexi & Derek part of the story.
I hope you liked it. Please review and tell me what you think. I'm only going to update the next chapter if gets good reviews.
P.S: The parts where it says that Lexi has a line through her words was originally written with lines through her words, but the website changed it _
