Description

Full Name: Rayna Violet Grey
Age & Birthday: 19, January 1st
Personality Traits: Independent, Risk Taker, Rebel
Art Major/Talent: Sketching & Modelling

Image
Brief Description: Rayna is what most people would call a b*tch. She just doesn't put up with bullshit. She has a good sense of humor but if you mess with her she will mess you up. Having a rough child hood made her a "tough-on-the-outside-soft-on-the-inside" kind of girl. She had managed her way through life "on her looks" and determination. She is really into art and photography. Her sketches are usually really dark and are the only way to get her stupid feelings out. Boys. She hates all of them. Maybe it's because of her "daddy issues" but she has never even been in a relationship. Once she made out with a boy at a party. But they were drunk and it never meant anything. I don't think she has ever felt love. Or felt loved.



History: Rayna grew up with her father, since her mother had died at an early age. Her father was abusive and beat until she was 15. At 15 she ran away from her home and lived with her best friend Kaleigh. She did some modelling to help pay for living there and continued to go to her school. One day, when Rayna was 17, she realized her father was watching her from in his car across the street. She played it cool and began to walk home but she could tell he was following her. So she turned a corner and booked it as fast she could. She ran all the way across town until she knew he wasn't following her anymore. Rayna knew she couldn't stay here anymore, hitch hiking was her only way out of Bakersville. Finally getting a ride from a truck driver they drove all the way to San Francisco. All she had was her backpack which had; 2 sweaters, some textbooks, her sketch book, her modelling portfolio. With that she went to all the modelling agencies, got herself bookings and made a name for herself. She isn't internationally famous but she has been on pages of Cosmo. All her hardwork has paid off, because 5 months ago she sent some of her sketches and photographs in to Pepperdine University and she got in.

Rayna was only a couple blocks away at this point. She was driving down first ave when she decided she needed a coffee. She pulled up to the corner and went into Starbucks. You deserve a treat. You got into University! Treat yourself for once. Said the voice in her head. So she got a caramel macchiato and savored every sip. But soon, sitting in that coffee shop, she got paranoid. She quickly got her stuff together and headed into her car. There as she finished her drink, she began to cry. "Why?!? Why do I always feel like this!?!" She slammed her hands on the wheel and then began doing her breathing exercises. As soon as she calmed down, she got back on the road to her new home.

She pulled up to the dorm and had to blink a few times to focus. "Wow." Well she was majoring in art so I guess this was for all the art freaks. She didn't know whether she should just walk in or wait for someone else to walk in with. Just go in. This is your place! But she couldn't yet. She decided to take out her sketch book and draw something first. As she dug through her bag she finally pulled it out. Rayna began shading and drawing lines, without a picture in her head. In the end she looked at it and shuddered. If this was the demon inside her, no wonder she was paranoid. She looked over and realized another car was there. Good. At least I'm not the first one here. So she closed the door on her car and took her bags in hand.

Rayna walked up the stairs to the big building in front of her. She could hear a faint sound of music playing. I hope they didn't start a party without me! She thought sarcastically. She got her key from her backpack and slowly opened the door. She dropped her bags as soon as she stepped in. After standing in awe for a few moments, she began to walk slowly, in disbelief of the beautiful paintings and sophistication of her new home. She literally couldn't believe this was real, so she pinched herself. "Ooow!" Suddenly the music stopped. She walked around the corner until she met up with the girl who must have been playing the music. She was going to put her hand out for a shake but instead she just smiled awkwardly. "I'm Rayna. And you are?" She checked the girl out from head to toe. Not in a sexual way, but in a.... observational way. She was wearing a bright yellow vest and had a cute black bob. She knew that this house would be filled with a bunch of talented artsy freaks but she never knew they'd be this talented.

"Miss Briar?" a polite voice questioned. Ross blinked, completely confused, before memories came swimming back to her. An easy smile pulled at the corners of her pretty lips as she recalled where she was. They'd set of the day before around five pm, beginning the long drive from her mother's home in Portland, Oregon to her new college in Malibu, California. The polite voice was that of her driver, who'd loyally made the sixteen hour drive down the country, travelling through the night as Rose slept in the back of the limousine.

"Miss Briar?" he enquired again as Rose blinked. "We're here. Do you want me to take your luggage inside while you freshen up?"[/b]

Rose thought for a second, biting down gently on her lip. "No. Just wait here for a little bit. I want to have a look around," she concluded, looking out the window at the two cars that were already in the driveway of the large apartment. It was grander than Rose had expected, all pretty mood lighting and a modern building. She wasn't sure exactly what she'd been expecting though, really, she hadn't even given it a second thought. She'd simply concluded anywhere would be better than her mother's house with her strict, bullying step-father.

"As you wish," the driver responded, holding the door open for Rose to step out.

Quickly, Rose slipped the mirror from its compartment, checked her makeup, wiping away slight dark smudges from under her eyes where her mascara had slipped. She then applied a little more red lipstick to her full lips. Her red heels clipped against the floor as she stepped out, straightening out to her full height. She was reasonably tall as it was, and the heels only have her more height. The skin tight, almost spray on white jeans clung to her thin but curvy legs, creating a beautiful streamlined effect. She wore a deep red top, that matched her lips and heels perfectly. It clung to her slim waist and wrapped around her breasts in a way that Rose knew was all too attractive to men. The sleeves were short and loose around her shoulders, but this wasn't a problem under the Californian sun, which, at mid-morning, basked the driveway in a lovely warmth. Her long, blonde hair tumbled in waves down her back.

She approached the door, trying the handle. She was grateful when it twisted under her grasp and the door opened. The stairs stretched out ahead of her and from upstairs music floated down. Well, she concluded, she might as well introduce herself to the women she was going to be spending the foreseeable future with. She followed the source of the sound up to a room where one girl sat at the piano and another was watching.

Rose caught the tail ends of what the standing girl said, introducing herself as Rayna.

"Hey, I'm Rose," she told them with a beautiful smile.

Raja led Jasmine strait into the paino room where other girls had already gathered. She looked them all over and sighed. They where already introducing themselves to eachother so they couldnt be that bad....they seemed nice enough actually. She smiled and did a small wave before running her fingers through her thick black locks nervously.

"Hi, im Jasmine..." she said with a small smile before she noted Raja jumping on the piano, and running across it when it made horrible sounds and scared him.

"And that, is Raja...sorry, you know the saying curiosity killed the cat...seems he's lucky." Jasmine said as she walked over to the cat that was now hiding under hte piano. He gave her a plantive meow when she picked him up but otherwise didnt struggle.

"How are you ladies this fine morning?" she asked trying to be polite and make conversation.

Rayna turned around as more girls came in. It seemed to be a party now. She turned her attention away from the musician, who had yet to answer her question, and gave a slight smile to her other room mates. "How are you ladies this fine morning?" Her eyes shifted to the ethnic beauty which had referred to herself as "Jasmine". She quickly began to think about the Disney princess Jasmine and her tiger Raja. She had a little laugh in her head and a smile grew on her face. Rapunzel had always been her favorite princess. Rayna had remade a version of Rapunzel in her head where the princess escaped by herself and lived on her own. Rayna knew that Rapunzel could have escaped anytime she wanted, but the character in the story was an idiot. She always referred to herself as the stronger Rapunzel.

As her mind came back to planet earth she realized they were all standing in an awkward circle. Putting her hand through her hair, Rayna could feel the uneasy tension, "So I'm going to find my room..." Walking off she went around the corner. It was time to explore the "castle". She first found the kitchen. It had the aroma of fresh coffee and there was a woman sitting down drinking one of the hot beverages. The Rayna got closer, the woman looked over and was startled. "Sorry... Did I scare you?" Rayna asked. The woman shook her head, "No.. I just thought you were Jasmine. I didn't realize any house guests had arrived yet. I'm the house keeper, Mrs. James." Rayna smiled and quickly got out of there. She wasn't great at socializing and preferred having time to herself.

The halls were filled with modern paintings and some pictures of Jasmine. Well... That's nice... She walked through the living room and took a quick look in the bathroom. Finally she found a bed room. The door had the letter 'J' on it so she figured it was Jasmines. But as she reached upstairs she realized all the doors had letters on them. The problem was, she noticed two doors had the letter 'R' on them. so she took a peak in each. The first one was right by the bathroom. Well that would be a plus. Easiest way to get a shower first. It was also quite spacious. But as she reached the second one, which was the last door down the hall, her jaw dropped. It was smaller than the first but it had a balcony. Probably the only bedroom with a balcony for that matter. She took off her jacket and raced downstairs to get her bags. She had to make sure that no one took her room. Snatching her bags in her hands she scurried back upstairs and put her bags on the floor and jumped onto her bed. This feels like a fairytale. She thought.

Fionna was startled as the first girl found her playing the piano and introduced herself. "Oh, hello" she said kindly " I wasn't expecting anybody else to be here for a while. I'm Fionna Kent. It's nice to meet you" Just at that moment another girl with blonde hair came in and introduced herself. "Hello to you as well, I'm Fionna" Fionna gave another smile and a polite nod. A tiger looking cat came into the room and was soon followed by an exotic looking girl. She introduced herself as Jasmine and Fionna smiled and introduced herself to the newcomer. The cat that had come in ran across the piano keys making a terrible din.

"I'm feeling very hungry. I think I'll go down and have a sandwich" She closed the piano lid and followed behind Rayna towards the kitchen. As she entered the luxiourious looking kitchen she saw a plump looking housemaid sitting down and drinking coffee. Rayna went over and fixed her a cup of coffee and Fionna made her way to the cupboard for bread. After fixing her turkey sandwich on rye bread, Fionna took a seat at the counter and procceeded to chow down.

As people began to leave the room, Rose exited too. She followed the corridor until she came to a set of doors, each with a letter on them. Evidently, these were the bedrooms. Rose watched as Rayna disappeared into one of the rooms with an R on it with her bags, closing the door behind her. Clearly, this meant the other door with an R belonged to Rose. She opened the door to a beautiful bedroom. This was perfect. It was right by the bathroom, so she'd always get first shower. It was spacious, meaning her copious belongings would all fit in the room. The ceiling was high and a huge window stretched up, giving Rose the most beautiful view across Malibu. The furniture was lovely and all matched perfectly, much to Rose's delight. But the most exciting part of all was the bed. Rose was a party girl through and through and she loved going out and having a good time, but there was also nothing like slipping into bed after a long night partying and descending into the loveliest sleep. She hated morning when she had to drag herself from her bed, and she could tell this bed was going to be even harder to drag herself from than most. It was huge, made with expensive wood and covered with the loveliest duvet, all made up with cushions and a throw. It was perfect.

Setting her bag down on the bed, Rose left the room and headed back down the stairs. She decided now was probably the best time to have her luggage brought inside so her driver could begin the long drive back to her mother's in Portland. Besides, she couldn't wait to get all her things in her bedroom now she'd seen it.

Rayna had probably been in her room for about half an hour, just looking. She loved the tall mirror and started putting her few clothes into the closet. **Beep. Beep.** She ran over to her crappy cell phone and saw the reminder for her photo shoot tomorrow. "Great. It's on the far side of town. But at least it's good pay." She smiled as she grabbed a water bottle from her bag and sat on one of the chairs out on the balcony. Breathing in the fresh Malibu air made her feel so free. She was inspired. Rayna pulled out her sketch book and began to sketch one of the tree's. After closing it up Rayna decided she might as well meet the people she'd be living with for the next months and so on. She freshened up her lips with her baby pink lipstick and walked downstairs. There she saw Jasmine picking up the cat. "Hey Jasmine... So, I figured we should get to know everyone better.. Are we doing anything tonight?"

Jasmine picked up Raja and sighed as she watched the other girls go. She didn’t even get a chance to tell them about the party….guess she was going to have to be forceful about it....Diplomacy wasnt her thing.

"Hey Jasmine... So, I figured we should get to know everyone better.. Are we doing anything tonight?"

"Yes actually, I have announcement for all the girls" She said with a smile as she headed for the Study.

“Mrs. Smith…Gather the girls in the study…its time for a house meeting.” She said to the plump older woman. Mrs. Smith hen scurried off, going room to room to tell the girls to go to the study for the house meeting.

Jasmine sat in the big leather chair with Raja in her lap, purring as the girls entered she smiled. She wondered if any of them would actually want to go....she hoped so...but she wouldnt stoop low enough to ask.

“So, We are having a party, the biggest coming out party of the year. Tonight actually. Bring anyone you want…I’d like to decorate as well…any volunteers?” Jasmine asked as the girls filed in.

Rayna followed the queen to the study. She still couldn't believe how big this complex was. As each girl arrived she could feel their "pep". She hated "pep". So far she had seen everyone. She could have made a little chart on each of their personalities (based on looks that is). There was Fionna, as she recalled, who would be kind of shy and have her own thing. Jasmine who would probably tend to be bossy but with good intentions. Rose was the blonde, which she knows she shouldn't stereotype but she had nothing else to go off on. The last was a blonde girl too, but not like Rose. She seemed kind and sweet. But who knows, everyone has a dark side. I wonder what people think of me...? She thought as Jasmine started to talk.
“So, We are having a party, the biggest coming out party of the year. Tonight actually. Bring anyone you want…I’d like to decorate as well…any volunteers?”
Rayna was stunned. "Will there be boys?"
But with a smirk Jasmine replied "What's a party without boys?!"
Which was totally true. "I'm going to get ready." She declared as she evacuated the scene.

She could hear girls talking as she walked away. She went into her room and dumped her suitcase on the big fluffy bed. Trying multiple types of dresses she finally found the one that would work. She tugged and pulled on the dress until she felt perfect. Touching up her make up she started to hear noise downstairs. She assumed it was guessed and decided to make her entrance. She walked down the stairs slow and casual in her cute ballet flats. Smiling as she saw there was already a few people here.

Koby shook his head, still not impressed with the outfit Andrew managed to scrounge up, but it would have to do. "Ready to go?" Andrew asked. Koby nodded and off they went to the sorority. Koby ran his hand through his hair, his opposite hand in his back pocket of his jeans, feeling his phone. Andrew and Koby walked up to the front door, and hesitantly wondered whether to knock of just walk in. Koby shrugged and opened the door, walking straight in. A grin crossed his lips slightly before scoping out the room for any beauties in the room.

Before long, Koby spotted a blonde walking down the stairs real slow in an outfit she had obviously chosen to grab wondering eyes and attention of boys. It hugged her tightly, fitting her frame perfectly. Koby was almost lost for words, a modest beauty. He looked away quickly though, before giving himself away and then walked towards the bottom of the stairs where the girl was walking. He waited for her to reach the bottom before saying anything. "And so, how much did you spend on that?" Koby smirked at the pretty dress the girl before him was wearing. Up close he studied the girl further, and before his words could land on her ears, he recovered himself to the gentleman he swore to be for the night, "You look...stunning," Koby complimented, his voice soft, leaning in close to say into the girls ears. They weren't touching, not yet, Koby new to keep his distance from girls who looked like they could slap a guy. "Koby," He introduced himself, leaning on the banister of the stairs.

Rayna looked at the stairs and she walked down, making sure not to trip. She once fell down in a runway show, and hasn't been able to do another since. When she reached the last step she noticed a guy staring at her. "And so, how much did you spend on that?" the guy smirked. She remembered getting the dress, it was from the thrift shop down town. It was also a bit longer but had a huge stain. So she had sewed it and trimmed it. "You look...stunning," he said as he leaned closer. She stood there, just waiting. She glanced at his friend who was awkwardly standing by him, looking at his shoes. As the guy leaned back she let her breath out. He was kind of cute but was probably just another douche bag who wanted to do it with her. It was flattering but not enough for her to sleep with them.
"Koby," He said.
"Not interested." She said as she walked into the kitchen. She saw beers, typical, but she went in the fridge and grabbed some orange juice and vodka. At least I can start this year off with a bang. Rayna mixed the two drinks and took a sip. She didn't want to get drunk just yet, she would rather wait til there's more people around, so she could feel like she was actually part of the party. Like she belonged. Like people wanted to party with her. But in reality, later when she would sober up, she knew that she was just a lone wolf fending for herself.

Fionna sat quietly all throughout Jasmine's presentation. Then came the point where she asked for volunteers to decorate. Fionna raised her hand to volunteer. She enjoyed decorating a lot. After Jasmine had concluded talking she got up from her seat and went in search of balloons. It didn't take very long for Fionna to complete the decorations. After admiring her work, she went upstairs to change.

She searched her closet and came up with the perfect dress. Then it came time to find shoes. She searched for a few more minutes and found her favorite shoes and pulled them on. She looked in her mirror and fixed her hair before going down. Seeing she looked acceptable, she exited her bedroom and made her way downstairs. On the stairs, she passed Rayna who was already getting hit on. "She must be lucky, but it's no surprise, she's beautiful."

She could see that the house was filling up fast with guests and became a little nervous. She wasn't so sure that she wanted to be a part of the party much longer. It just wasn't like her to do this. She had never even been to a high school party before. Then, she spotted Rayna again, this time heading for the kitchen. She quickly followed behind her. Rayna was in the fridge grabbing something to mix a drink with. "Umm..hey.. mind if I join you for a drink. I'm not much of a party person, ya know..?" She walked to the counter, her heels clacking on the tile floor. She grabbed the orange juice and vodka after Rayna was done with it and mixed herself a drink. She sat next to Rayna at the counter and waited for more people to show up.

Koby wasn't too surprised by the shut down from the girl in the black dress. If anything, he expected it. Girls who were in this sorority would be stuck-up and probably selfish too. Nothing that surprised Koby. However, he didn't expect her to walk off so quickly. With a smirk, Koby followed after her, afterall, it was the girls party at the sorority, they should be polite to their guests. Koby noticed another girl standing beside the girl in the black dress. He sighed and walked over to her again, going for round two, "You know," he started with a soft tone, trying to compete with the gentleman side of him with the rude side that just wanted to shout. "You shouldn't be so rude to your guests, I was simply trying to be nice," Koby almost glared over at the girl, trying to get some sort of spark out of her. But before his words could linger in the air, he turned his attention to the girl next to her who was wearing a blue dress that hid a lot of what the girl had to offer.

"Hey there," Koby let out a brilliant smile at the girl in blue, "Would you mind getting me a drink?" He naturally asked politely; this one side of him that knew how to be polite however so rare, he still had that side. He lent on the counter as the girl in black did, being careful to not look in her direction, getting the vibe that she didn't know how to loosen up. "I'm not as terrible as you think I am," Koby assumed, crossing his arms over his wide chest. If anything, he has been nice to her as of the only couple of sentences he's spoken to her. He left his eyes wondering over the large room of the castle the girls had the luxury to live in.

Rayna watched Fionna grab the two substances and make a drink like hers. Then walked in Koby again. I'm pretty sure I was straight forward. Why will he not leave. She poured herself another glass of her concoction but this time with twice the alcohol. She knew this night was going to be pretty hard, especially since she has a lost puppy following her.
"You know, you shouldn't be so rude to your guests, I was simply trying to be nice," He said.
Nice? I doubt that. But she kept on her silent treatment and watched Koby check out Fionna. Just another dog. She directed her eyes away from him, he would not get any glimpse of hope. She could feel him lean on the counter, mimicking her.
"I'm not as terrible as you think I am," He stated. Yet she ignored him and poured herself some more. Straight up vodka.
Rayna leaned over to Fionna and whispered "You want him? He's all yours." and walked away. She wasn't in the mood to play games, or flirt, or have anything to do with boys. So, she headed towards the stairs.

Andrew watched as Koby began to hit on the beautiful girl who had made her way down the stairs. Her hair had bounced all the way down, grabbing everyone's attention. But he knew he didn't have a chance. If she would blow off a guy like Koby then who says she would talk to a guy like himself. But he observed Koby, how he stood and how he talked. It was all confidence. but for him, it was very low. So he turned around and began to blend with the crowd. Smiling and glancing all around. He reached the center of the room when he saw another girl walk down the stairs. She had short black hair and blue dress. She was gorgeous. But he looked away, just as she made eye contact. He didn't want to seem like a jerk so he figured he'd talk to her later.

Looking over at the coffee table he noticed cans of beer. He grabbed on and began to guzzle it down. As he drank he started to hear people chanting "Chug! Chug! Chug!" So he grabbed another and drank that one in another minute. He lifted the empty can as people began to cheer and resumed their dancing and mingled. Then some short ginger came up to him. "Hi" She smiled. In this moment he decided to play the role of "Koby". So he gave her a convincing smirk and did a head to toe check.
"Hey beautiful, want to dance?" And with that her grabbed her hand and they began to dance.

Koby wasn't catching anything from Rayna, not even a glimpse, nor an acknowledgment of his presence. What was wrong with this girl? Koby became intrigued to know her story. But he wasn't going to lower his game, no, he was going to play just as tough as she was. "You want him? He's all yours." The girl had leaned over the counter to whisper to the other girl, but Koby being as close as he was to her, he heard. He smirked at the sly comment and sighed. "Seriously?" He raised an eyebrow and watched as the girl began to walk away. He sighed again and he followed her once more. He was keen on proving that he actually wasn't as terrible as first impressions seemed. She acted as if she knew everything about him already.

"Hey," Koby said, lightly tapping her on her forearm. He moved to walk in front of her, leaning in close, breathing in her. "C'mon, I'm not that bad," He whispered in her ear, leaning in closer. "I want to know," He stated, "Why? What's making you so god damn defensive," He breathed quietly and pulled back from her neck, and leaned away, before turning around and leaving her alone. Koby returned back to the kitchen to finish his drink, with a sour look on his face. He didn't mean to impose on the girl, not intimidate. Actually, he didn't do either things. He was simply being kind, if anything. He sipped on his drink, running his hand through his hair.

She was at the bottom of the stairs with a cute boy in her face, dying for her attention. What was wrong with her!? "I want to know, Why? What's making you so god damn defensive," He asked as he retreated. She watched him walk away and had a moment of thinking. He was right. He might be a decent guy. When she thought about it, he mustn't have just wanted to sleep with her. There are plenty of beautiful girls at this party and he is chasing after her, even though he still doesn't know her name. She looked up at the stairs again. She was already tipsy and the amount of stairs gave her a head ache. Her eyes wandered to her drink and she noticed it was empty. She had seen Koby go back into the kitchen, and was dreading the thought of seeing him. Even though they just met, she felt bad for being a bitch. She slowly walked back to the kitchen and peaked in to see that the kitchen was now filled with people. She closed her eyes and breathed in. Just go get a drink and find somewhere secluded. As she walked in she saw Koby eye her and a bunch of other horny males. She grabbed the vodka and added a cherry for flare. But as she passed the hopeful male she casually said "It's none of your god damn business."

Koby smiled in her response, figuring it was just as cheeky to not only come back, but actually say something to him. However, she marched straight past him, continuing to grab yet another drink. Koby stood up with a sigh, and casually wondered over to where the girl in the black dress was starting her drink. "Well then, is a name my business? I can't keep thinking of you as the girl in the black dress, you know," His voice was calm, cool and seductive. He didn't mean to sound like a douche, to sound like any other guy at the party, but what can you do when you have a beauty trying to resist you? He walked around her, accidentally brushing her arm with his as he poured his own drink, just like everybody else had started to do as they warmed up to the house. "Would you give me a chance to know you?" He leaned in and whispered in her ear before walking away with his drink. He wasn't going to force her into anything; he's not that type of guy. He's a gentleman at heart; more of a gentleman than the rest of the male species at the party, but it doesn't stop of having some fun. Koby went out back to where a piano was and sat in a chair that was situated in the corner. There was only two other people in the room, making polite conversation but Koby took this as a chance to relax.

The boy stood up and wandered over to her. She enjoyed this little game they were playing, but she wouldn't admit it. "Well then, is a name my business? I can't keep thinking of you as the girl in the black dress, you know," His voice was calm, cool and seductive. She looked into his dark green eyes, "Rayna." He walked around her, brushing his arm with hers. "Would you give me a chance to know you?" He leaned in and whispered in her ear before walking away with his drink. She bit her lip. She hadn't felt a spark like this in a while. But it was probably the alcohol and the fact she hadn't had someone show interest in her for... well ever. She decided she should have fun. She is restricting herself. She walked in the direction of Koby and followed him to where Fionna had been playing the piano. She saw him sitting on the love seat and she sat next to him. "I guess you could say I have issues" She laughed, but only for a few seconds. She felt her legs twitching as she looked back over to him, she wanted to dance. "Dance with me?" She half smiled. It's just one night of fun. Have fun Rayna.

Koby felt a smirk cover his face, feeling as if he was winning this game of who-wants-who more but instantly guilt ran through his veins. He knew nothing about her, and he didn't want to make a fool of her. But hell, she was a great catch. She followed him into the studio and sat down beside him on the love seat. She had mentioned her name was Rayna. It played on his lips; he wanted to say her name. "I guess you could say I have issues," Rayna laughed, a sound of pure drunk happiness. Koby nodded in response - this he could slightly relate to. But out of the blue, Rayna asked him to dance. " Hah, dance!? Really? I don't know how to dance," Koby blushed for only a few seconds before letting it pass. He was not going to get embarrassed. The girl had a half smile playing on her lips, which made Koby smile in return. He guessed it couldn't hurt to try, the very least he could do was make some sort of excuse up that he was too drunk to care. He sighed, " But I guess just for you, I will, Rayna," Koby winked at her before standing up, placing his drink down on the floor and grabbing hers placing it down next to his. He would make new drinks later. He grabbed Rayna's hand before taking her back into the most cluttered room full of people in the house.

The music was blaring loud, he could barely hear himself think. The bass matched the beat of his heart. He then turned to look at Rayna, waiting to see what moves she could pull and what drunk ones he could match with hers.

He dragged her over to the "dance floor" AKA the living room. The beat was fast and so were her hips. She was doing circles with her hips and letting go. It was hot and she could see people grinding all around her. She even saw Koby's friend getting close with one of the girls. Suddenly Rayna felt hands on her hips and the smell of Koby's cologne. She really liked his smell. Going from side to side they were close and she put her arms over her shoulders and around his neck. Letting him get a quick kiss on her neck. Smiling and laughing wasn't what Rayna would normally be doing in this situation, she'd criticize the girls who couldn't dance, and go somewhere quite to sketch. But she felt free, like nothing mattered. Totally forgetting her photo shoot she had the next day. When her favorite dance song came on she really hit her groove, turning so she faced Koby as they danced.

Koby was usually clueless when it came to dancing, but with the amount of flesh that were moving around him in random patterns with partners or in groups, he decided to follow their lead. Rayna placed her arms around his shoulders, Koby dipping her back, nibbling at her neck, breathing her in. His hands wondered her body as they swayed in the music, feeling her body dance against his. His hands started on her back on her shoulder blades, slowly making their way down to her waist, following down to her hips and then to the curve of her arse, where he finished with a cheeky slap, just to come back up and rest settle on her hips. Koby finally saw the girl he knew was underneath all that serious earlier on in the night. He smiled at Rayna, even though her eyes were closed, lost in the music and her moves.

Koby didn't notice anybody else around him, all he saw was Rayna, so free and comfortable. To believe he had denied her earlier. Koby smirked, pulling Rayna in close again, nibbling her ear as she moved against his body. He grabbed her hands as she danced, letting them move as one, but still standing so close. Rayna's hips were moving fast, Koby copying who ever he looked at the last time he bothered looking at anybody else. He followed the sequence he started earlier, feeling her back and finishing at the curve of her arse, this time, not bothering to move.

Rayna could feel his hands moving all over her. She felt sensational. The last time she let a guy touch her, well she didn't. But who cares? She felt him nibble on her ear and she giggled. This is what sluts felt like, all the time? Not bad. She could feel Koby's hand stop on her butt and she grabbed his face. She looked at him, not really knowing what she was doing. Then the song stopped and her hands dropped awkwardly. "I need another drink," She smiled, walking away with Koby's hand in hers. She found the kitchen and the only drink available was beer. She was never a big fan of beer. She figured her glass from before was probably empty, and as she turned back to Koby, she yawned discretely. "Wanna go back and dance..?' She asked as she started leaning on her head on his chest.

Koby laughed as Rayna stated that she needed another drink, the sensations he felt before dulling down. He started to control himself again, reminding him that he's more sober than her. They made it to the kitchen only to find that beer was the beverage available, and seeing the distaste upon Rayna's lips, he figured that wouldn't be her first preference. "Wanna go back and dance?" She asked, leaning her head lightly on his chest. Koby raised an eyebrow, lifting a hand to move hair off her face, letting his fingers trail their way down her neck, over a breast, before resting on her waist. "Are you up for more dancing?" Koby asked. He doubted she could handle anymore, she seemed to be almost out of it. Thinking more for her than for himself for once, he decided that she would best need sleep. "How about we go tuck you into bed?" He asked her, moving her face so that he was looking down into her eyes, cupping her face in his hands. Her eyes were glassy, dreary, and bags were forming underneath them.

She loved the gentleness in his hands. "Are you up for more dancing?" Koby asked, it sounded like he genuinely cared. She nodded but her eyes were almost closed. "How about we go tuck you into bed?" He asked her, moving her face so that he was looking down into her eyes, cupping her face in his hands. "Okay" she said quietly. They trudged over to the stairs and she stared at the stairs again. "Carry me?" she teased. She could feel him actually going to pick her up, "I was kidding!" Rayna grabbed the rail and began to uneasily climb the stairs. Stairs aren't that hard.. She thought, unknowing of Koby's hands on her hips, guiding her up. They reached the top and she started walking towards her room at the end of the hall. But when she reached her door she just stopped.

"Carry me?" Rayna's teasing tone came so easily, slurred in with the drunken state. Koby smirked and started to lift her but she resisted, and settled on slowly making her way up the stairs. Koby kept hold of her the whole time, even as they walked down the hall to her room, where she stopped so suddenly. Koby raised his eyebrows, "This your room?" His gentleman facade playing perfectly all night, was suddenly rubbing off as it was nearing the later hours and the dancing had taken a toll on him. No reply came from Rayna, assuming she was probably dead on her feet. Koby opened up her door to her room which revealed a very well-kept luxury. Sighing, he walked behind Rayna, placing his arms firmly around her waist, walking forward slowly before sitting her down on her bed. He sat down next to her, watching her eyes flutter, opening and closing. With a sigh again, he picked Rayna up so she was lying down now on her bed, and removed her shoes. He sat on the edge of the bed and began stroking her back, waiting for her to perhaps fall asleep.

She looked in the room. But all she saw was the dark. It scared her. She felt Koby pulling her, she tried to resist but being as tired as she was she just went with it. She was sitting on her bed in the dark. She could feel the monsters and evil lurking around. He picked her up again and put her laying down on the bed. She was breathing heavily as her shoes came off. All of this was so much. She couldn't take it. "Koby I'm scared." She never opened up like this. She turned on her side and pulled Koby close to her so they were laying side by side. "I just got here and I'm scared." She whispered as she laid her head on his chest. She could feel his hands moving through her hair. "Don't leave." She whimpered. She heard a noise, probably his shoes hitting the floor, and clutched onto him. The touches, his breathing and warmth all slowly calming her down. She could feel her heart slow, from the near panic attack she almost had.

"Don't leave." Was all Koby heard before he was pulled down underneath Rayna, her heading resting in the perfect spot upon her chest. She felt so delicate, so fragile. Koby couldn't help but laugh at how childish it seemed that she was scared of the room, but it was the perfect excuse to have her in his arms. Her lifted up the blankets, pulling himself and Rayna under them. He had one arm behind his head, the other cradling Rayna, stroking her back. He glimpsed down at the small body, curled up beside him. Koby had never felt so confused before. So...vulnerable. Her eyes were shut, but he couldn't tell if she was asleep yet. He couldn't sleep there the night, no, that wasn't possible. He would be killed by his frat boys. But she was so warm, calm and he could feel her small heart beating against his own. Koby sighed in contentment, moving his hand from behind his head to the side of Rayna's face, stroking her cheek. It was one of those moments were Koby really hesitated. Actually hesitated before doing something that wasn't out of confidence, cockiness or arrogance, but out of genuine feeling. He lowered himself, bringing Rayna's face up the slightest to meet his own, to brush his lips against her forehead, her cheek and slowly finding his way to her lips. It was dark, quiet, and cool in the room. But the warmth of Rayna was all her could feel. He pressed his lips softly against hers, before pulling back, looking at Rayna's peaceful state.

She wasn't asleep. She was too terrified. But she was stable. The feeling of being so close to someone made her very awake. But yet her eyes were closed and heavy. She felt his hand rubbing her cheek and she imagined her prince charming. Who happened to be laying right next to her. Now all she needed was a ball gown and horse drawn carriage. His lips brushed her face ever so lightly. Then he chin was lifted. The room was quiet as he pressed his lips softly against hers, and she slightly opened her a bit more, as if accepting the kiss. She then wrapped her arms around him and kissed him again, this time with a little more drunk passion. But she then put her head back down onto his chest as she closed her eyes again. "Promise you won't leave?" She said in a murmur. She started to see a little town in Italy as her dreams began to fill her mind.

"Promise you won't leave?" Koby listened to the murmurs of his little drunk princess, after she had given him back a more powerful kiss than he bargained for. Koby snuggled down, moving Rayna next to him so he could look at her face, hold her more closely, "I'll stay" He said, knowing too well that he can't resist. He stroked her back, feeling her bra tight dress, catching all the curves he could find. It was a shame that she was falling asleep...a little idea came into Koby's mind, and hoping to not disturb his sleeping beauty, he rolled her onto her back carefully. He brushed away hair from her face, and started planting little kisses on her forehead, on her cheeks, her closed eyelids, kissing her lips so softly as he did before, nibbling her bottom lip. He was on top of her, holding his weight above her at this point. He was stroking her waist, and kissed and nibbled her ear lobe before dropped to her neck. Kissing softly, down to her collar bone where he nibbled, going lower before he made it to her cleavage, where he stopped and wrapped his arms around her, sighing in surrender. He wouldn't do it. He would be the gentleman he swore he would be that night. Wrapping Rayna up in his arms, laying on their sides, he pulled her close, his breathing beside her ear.

**BEEP*BEEP*BEEP**
Rayna opened her eyes and flung her arm over to the night stand where her phone was. She searched the table until she picked up the phone. 10:27am Frantically she squeezed out of Koby's embrace onto the floor. She looked at him, He looks kinda peaceful.. But then the head ache hit her. Rayna groaned as she tried to think of the night before. All she knew was she got drunk and couldn't remember the night before. It really took her a few moments to acknowledge she had a photo shoot in about 20 minutes, on the other side of town! "Oh shit!" She complained, trying to keep her voice low, not to wake Koby. She started racing around the room, to her suit case then back to the mirror, to the bathroom and back to the mirror. She finally looked decent and kind of professional, despite the nasty hang over. She grabbed her phone and keys just as she heard Koby murmur something. She didn't have time for this. She grabbed an apple as she ran out the door and to her crap car. Please. For the love of god, do not give me car trouble. She turned the key in the engine, success! Off she was, leaving the boy to wake up alone in her bed.

Groggily, Koby shifted his head in the direction of the beeping noise, his eyes still not opening. He felt weight shift out of his arms, moving away from him, leaving him cold. He placed his head back down on the pillow beneath his head, "...h...it..." muffled words were heard but Koby felt too groggy to even make them out.

A few minutes later, Koby was waking up, alone, in a room that definitely did not look like his. Frowning, he propped himself up on his elbows, and sighed. He remembered last night, and he knew that the girl probably didn't. Oh crap, what time is it? Did he need to be somewhere important? There was no clock, but he soon realised he had his phone in his back pocket. Pulling it out, he found it was dead. With a small moan, he sat up slowly on the edge of the bed, rubbing his eyes. The girl was gone, that was alright. It meant he could go home without hassle. So with that, Koby picked himself up and put his shoes on, leaving the sorority oh-so quietly.

Koby started to walk back home when he remembered that he went to the party with Andrew - and Jake couldn't make it. Changing his ways, Koby started towards Andrew and Jake's apartment before briskly turning up at their doorstep and knocked lightly. He still didint' know what time it was, but he hoped that nobody was asleep.

She parked her car and ran to the studio doors. Showing a glimpse of her I.D. as she went to her change room. "Sorry I'm sort of late. Car troubles." The makeup guru cringed and began to work away. "At least I don't have to remove your make up" she said with a sigh. Rayna sat down and let the woman do her job. Once in the outfit she was rushed onto the blank shoot. But her mind wasn't in the game and the director could tell. "Rayna, what's wrong? you're not giving me what I'm asking for." She sighed. "Just dumb personal stuff. Give me a minute okay?" She walked off set and went to the bathroom. Splashing some water on her face and and leaning over the sink. Just forget about it. She walked back on set and was back in the game. Giving him the perfect shot. "Thanks hun. We will definitely book you again. Your check will arrive in the mail in a week or so." Rayna's eyes went wide. "But I need that money now!" Keeping her voice serious. He gave her an eye, "I'm sorry but there's nothing we can do." She sighed as she went to change and leave. Hopefully I can afford a week on my own.

Rayna slammed the car door as she stomped into the house. As you may realize, she isn't in a good mood. Dark clouds were forming overhead, Great. Just greeeaaat. She sighed as she took off her heels and walked to her room. She didn't bother to find any of the other girls, for all she knew they were just waking up at some strangers house. That party had been rad. Well she thought so, all she remembered was being with Koby in her room. She was afraid, you can't forget fear. The memory of snuggling up with this boy she had just met was crystal clear. Maybe he isn't so bad after all. When she got in her room she decided to set up her things a bit more. Currently it looked like an empty hotel room. She took her sole suit case and dumped the clothes on the floor. She made an outfit for the days of the following week then hung up the rest of her clothes. Then she remembered some of the stuff she had in the back of her car. Slowly she made her way to her car, and grabbed the bags from the trunk. Just as she reached the door it began to drizzle. Rayna sighed as she went back to her room with the decorations. She started putting up one of her framed sketches and adding other personal touches to her room. I need music. Casually hooking up her new docking station, which she had recently bought as a gift to herself for getting the scholarship, she put on her Rihanna playlist. Definitely her favorite playlist. She started humming as Diamonds came on.

"I'm going out," Koby said so suddenly during his last match of Call of Duty with Jake before throwing the controller down and grabbing his mobile, wallet and a jacket. "What? Um, okay?" Jake said, rather annoyed in the sudden change of tone Koby had with him. The boy was getting emotional, he wasn't himself. This was madness. Koby knew exactly where he was going, and he knew exactly why. There was something about the girl he met last night that he didn't want to leave behind. He knew it would be stupid to leave something that had apparently been so important to him as just a one night..."thing".

Koby walked outside, putting on his jacket and found it was drizzling. Koby smiled, looking up towards the sky, rain drops falling directly on his face. He started jogging in the direction of the sorority he left earlier that day, finally making it to the castle in one piece - but thoroughly drenched. Puffing, Koby knocked on the front door to the sorority, a hand over his head, steering rain drops away from his face, his clothes dripping. He knocked on the door, waiting for a reply.

As Rayna heard the last line of Stay she could feel a tear roll down her cheek. Even though that song was new, she felt it represented her. She wanted her mother to stay and she had dreams about her all the time. By now that tear had become a fountain, making her mascara run. Getting emotional wasn't her thing so to control it she took out her sketch book. She was getting a bit frantic as the rain was coming down harder. As she looked around her room she was uninspired. Then last night hit her like a bowling ball to a pin. She started quickly drawing the bed with herself in it, but instead of Koby, it was a dent where he should have laid. She smiled with her work as she put the book down. It had made her feel safe last night, having someone stay with her. Maybe a lot of guys were like this. Nope. Not a chance. Glancing over to the big mirror, she noticed the embarrassing stains from her little moment of weakness. Leaving her sketch book open on her bed, she took out a wet wipe and cleaned her face, clear of all make up. Then was the sound, **Knock*Knock** Rayna waited a few moments, still doing her own thing when she heard it again. Knowing no one else was around to get the door she trotted down the stairs to the door. As she opened the door she saw that familiar face. It was Koby. Her heart starting to flutter, she immediately closed the door right in his face. She was confused and filled with emotions. Why is he here? God, did he do something to me last night? Her hand still on the handle, she opened it half way. He was soaking wet, making his shirt transparent to the msucle underneath. "Sorry.. come in." As he walked in, he shook his head, like a wet dog, to get the water off. "Nice weather we're having..." She said awkwardly. She wasn't sure if she was into him but he was there for her last night. "So.. Uh.. Why are you here?" She asked, looking at him with her cute puzzled look.

For a second there, the door opened, revealing the beautiful figure behind it that Koby urned to see so badly. Only to receive the door being closed in his face. Koby raised his eyebrows, his mouth gaping open as if he were going to say something, but nothing came out. As if scripted, the door opened again, "Sorry..come in," Rayna let Koby enter her house again. He walked inside, shaking his head, letting little water droplets splash out onto the floor while Rayna made small talk, "Nice weather we're having...So..Uh..Why are you here?" Koby smirked turning to face her, "Well," He began, before finding his shirt stuck to him like glue. He removed his jacket, before peeling his shirt off his body, "Hope you don't mind..." He muttered before completely removing the shirt, throwing next to the door. He proceeded to take off his shoes, also leaving them by the door. "Didn't expect it to rain, really," Koby still had a smirk across his face as he watched a puzzled emotion wave over Rayna's face. "I thought we could hang out, you know. Like normal people? Maybe watch tv?" Koby sounded so innocent, and standing bare-chested in front of Rayna made him feel unbelievably vulnerable. The rain was battering down on the roof, echoing throughout the mansion. Koby didn't feel cold, not yet, but his jeans felt so uncomfortable being glued to his legs.

She watched as he lifted off the wet jacket and hung it on one of the hooks by the door. Every muscle flexing as he proceeded to take off his shirt. "Hope you don't mind..." She was feeling hot, literally. He was hot, literally. She tried to hide her smile as he said 'I thought we could hang out, you know. Like normal people? Maybe watch tv?" He sounded so innocent, unlike the guy who hit on her at the beginning of the night. "I guess..." She started to say when suddenly there was the roar of thunder. With only her instincts she jumped right over to Koby and was holding on to him for dear life. She remembered when she was alone on nights like these. She would cry in her car listening to the static on the radio. But things were different now, like the fact she was clinging onto a half naked boy in her own condo. With the moments passing her grip loosened and she backed up slightly. She hated the smirk he had on his face. Like he was just "irresistible". "You know what, you should go." She pointed out. He had gotten enough from her last night and she wasn't up for any encore.

Rayna clung onto Koby as thunder roared above their heads. He stifled a laugh, finding it cute that a girl her age were scared of such things. Over time, she loosened up again, letting go before glancing at him and pointing to the door. "You know what, you should go." Koby raised an eyebrow. "You want me to leave, while this storm is happening? Really? Rayna, I just wanted to chill out, seriously," Koby laughed, and it was cold, heartless. "Remember last night? Who was holding you when you told them how scared you were of the dark?" Koby smirked, stepping ever so slightly closer to Rayna, "Or maybe the way you danced with me last night, how you let me touch you," Koby's voice was nothing but a whisper as he edged closer, leaning in down to her neck as he did the night before. "The way you kissed me when we were in your room, the way you slept with me, how I held you," His voice was cool, seductive against Rayna's skin. He wasn't touching her, but his breath may as well have been enclosing her in a warm, sexy grasp. "But of course," Koby leaned back, his voice back to his normal volume, his arms folding against his chest, "You still think I'm bad, yet I wasn't the one who left without goodbye. But, as you wish, m'lady," Koby bowed sarcastically before turning around to face the way he came, leaning to pick up his shirt and shoes, picking up his jacket. He opened the front door and watched as the rain poured down heavily, wind blowing something fierce.

His smell was irresistible. He was irresistible, as much as she hated to admit it. "Remember last night? Who was holding you when you told them how scared you were of the dark?" The way he lingered over her, she couldn't help but melt inside. "The way you kissed me when we were in your room, the way you slept with me, how I held you," His voice was cool, seductive against Rayna's skin. Any guy with this much game was a player. Players know the game and know how to win. She was frustrated and had her arms crossed as he leaned back. "You still think I'm bad, yet I wasn't the one who left without goodbye. But, as you wish, m'lady," She watched him pick up his wet clothes, "Stop!" she cried. It just came out. She wanted him to leave. But the kindness in her heart couldn't let him go home in this storm especially when she couldn't see a car out front. She watched as he turned his head back towards her and she sighed. "Stay. I guess we could watch a movie or something.. I doubt there will be any satellite reception during this storm." With that she walked toward the entertainment room. She started opening up cabinets as she searched for any DVDs the place had to offer.

Koby rolled his eyes, growing tiresome of her mood swings. He followed her into what looked to be an entertainment room. He noted the pool table and comfy looking couches. As Rayna entered the room, Koby stood at the entrance to the room - his pants were still wet. "I need a towel or something to sit on," Koby looked at Rayna, expecting to be thrown a pillow, or a glare. Something that was nothing compared to at least a towel.

"I need a towel or something to sit on," She heard the boy ask. She smiled and looked at him with content. "Well let me look for something..." Taking a quick look she realized she didn't know where anything was. she turned the corner and began to yell, "Mrs. James!" and as if in a second the plump woman appeared at her side. "Yes? Did I miss something from the party last night?" She said worriedly. Rayna laughed, "No, you did a wonderful job, I wouldn't have known there even was a party last night thanks to you." Something about having Koby here made her in a good mood. Somewhat chipper. "I need some pants for my friend. Well, he walked over here and is soaked head to toe..." Mrs. James didn't look stumped like she had figured but waddled away. Leaving Rayna wondering if she had an answer to her problem or just decided Rayna was another dumb girl to look after. But in a moment or so, she returned with some jeans and even some clean underwear. "Jasmine had boys come over here all the time last year, they often left clothes here. Kind of gross... But these are clean, hope they fit." and with that she handed off the clothes to Rayna. Before the woman walked away she added, "Did you want a shirt for him too?" But Rayna shook her head. She was asking for trouble. As she reentered the room, she tossed the clothes to Koby and smiled. "Ta-da!" He walked off towards the bathroom as she was making her way back to the book case where she finally found the movies. Very little to chose from, so she made her way back to the couch as she lay across the whole thing, leaving no room for Koby once he'd come back from changing.

Koby accepted the clothes that Rayna had given him and got changed in the near by bathroom. He then realised he had no shirt. Huh... With a smirk he left the bathroom and reentered the entertainment room and found Rayna lying across the whole couch. Koby raised his eye brows, half a smile playing on his lips. "Chose anything to watch?" He asked innocently as he so naturally and quickly scoped Rayna up in his arms before placing her down again on top of his chest. The looks she shot at him as he did so, he ignored, "Hey, I won't do anything! Just watching tv, calm down..." Koby smirked once more before looking at the tv, nothing interesting being played as the satellite cut in and out. "Hey," Koby whispered. "I noticed before how puff your eyes were...are you alright?" His voice was sweet, genuine. Actually caring. And Koby knew he was being caring, almost loving towards the girl he so spontaneously picked up in his arms. It didn't seem to bother him one bit.

As he picked her up she rolled her eyes. He thought he could do whatever he wanted just because he was attractive? The looks she shot at him as he did so, he ignored, "Hey, I won't do anything! Just watching tv, calm down..." As she looked at the remote, she knew there was nothing to watch, making her nervous. "Hey, I noticed before how puff your eyes were...are you alright?" His voice was sweet, genuine. Rayna put a hand through her hair, letting her fingers run to her back, "I'm fine.." the silence was awkward as she thought about her mom. She didn't remember much but her dad used to keep a ton of photos of her around the house. The one thing she respected her father for was never moving on and keeping his vows he made to his wife. Clearing her throat she looked back at the guy who was lying beside her. "So there's no good movies and the tv doesn't work.. What do you want to do?" In her mind she came up with multiple dirty, cocky answers she expected him to say. Such as Make out, strip poker, kiss or dare, spin the bottle.. But he seemed to be behaving, like how she had always imagined her prince charming. I mean, her mother must have seen something in her crappy father for her to marry him.

"I'm fine..." Ranya replied, something in her voice, hidden, sad. Koby's eyebrows furrowed with confusion. So there was something wrong, but he didn't know whether to ask her or not, whether it was stepping out of place or just rude. For once he actually cared about how he would go about someones emotions. Before Koby could think up anything to answer to 'I'm fine', Rayna cleared her throat, "So there's no god movies and the tv doesn't work.. What do you want to do?" A crack of thunder shook the house, lightning lighting up the room as the light made it's way through cracks of windows, illuminating the both of them, lying beside each other. Koby instinctively placed a hand on the small of Rayna's back in a comforting gesture, rubbing his thumb up and down. He gazed down into her eyes, trying to feel the connection he had felt the night before. And there it was, that little spark that sent him straight into being the goody-goody. Maybe Andrew was rubbing off on him. Looking into Rayna's eyes, Koby pulled her in, wrapping his arms around her and cupping her face against his chest with his hand. She felt so soft and delicate in his arms, against his bare skin. A warm sensation filled him, imagining her laugh against the silent walls. He suddenly wanted her to talk again, some sort of sign she wasn't frightened of the storm because he was there. But so suddenly, the rain outside came down harder, rocking the house silently. It wasn't violent - not yet. And Koby didn't exactly want to leave. "I'm kind of hungry, I suppose," Koby said innocently, smiling. It wasn't something you'd expect at those type of moments, but it was something to do. "And I think I should cook," Koby grinned foolishly before standing up, picking Rayna up along the way, picking her up into his arms, wrapping her legs around his waist.

It was a fun kind of pick up. Not the sexual kind that he would usual do to bring on girls. He smelt her hair - strawberry. It drove sensations through his body again, making him warm. Walking into the kitchen, he sat Rayna down on the counter before scoping out her kitchen. "Hmm, Koby looked around the kitchen seeing can's of tomato soup, pasta. He opened up the fridge, letting a rush of cool air surround him. He spotted things he could do to make a salad. Smiling, Koby grabbed some cucumber, lettuce and tomatos and spun around to open the cupboard where he had spotted tomato sauce and thin pasta. He was going to make spaghetti. After venturing around the kitchen, Koby finally pulled out a pan and a bowl, the pan for the pasta, the bowl for the salad. He opened up the tomato sauce can and poured it all in the pan, turning on the stove. He opened up the packet of spaghetti, placing them in a bowel, running hot water over them. Koby then looked at Rayna, who appeared to be getting bored. With a mischievous grin, Koby flicked pasta at Rayna, before quickly going to her to stop her from moving anywhere to flick him back with anything.

Having him close to her was unforgettable. The way he held her with confidence, making her feel safe, was irreplaceable. Since she can remember, her life up until now was her against the world. The world with the upper hand. But now she had someone who would protect her from the storm. With his arms around her, "I'm kind of hungry, I suppose, And I think I should cook,", she had never had anyone cook for her. She wondered if this was a regular thing for him. Being nice and getting close to girls, then sleeping with them and leaving. She would always be paranoid and cautious with her feelings. As he picked her up again she could still smell his cologne he was wearing the other night. She held onto him, hoping she wasn't a burden to carry around. she really did love being carried. Putting her down, she hopped onto the stool by the island. Her eyes followed Koby as he searched through the cabinets and started to take out pasta and other food items.

But she just sat there, waiting for her meal to be prepared. With a mischievous grin, Koby flicked pasta at Rayna, before quickly going to her to stop her from moving anywhere to flick him back with anything. She then a grin herself as he had surrounded her with his arms. "I don't think so." Then they both began to laugh. It wasn't anything but everything. But Rayna pushed him off as she turned on the stove for him. "You don't mind that I help, right?" Her eyes brightened as he came over and poured the sauce into the pan. "Want to stir that for me?" He asked politely. She did as he asked and began to slowly stir the pot. She didn't mean to but it was so sensual. She could hear him searching through the cupboards again, adding things to the sauce as she kept stirring. "This better be good," Rayna said jokingly. Then she felt him around her. He grabbed the spoon and stirred with her. It reminded her of dancing with him, being close and all the touching. It was a magical night even though it was still blurry in some areas. They moved together, there arms going in circles as the aroma of tomatoes filled her nose. "Mmmm.." She mumbled as she felt his abs rubbing on her back. Another roar of thunder cried over the skies and Rayna dropped the spoon, turning to hold Koby. "Sorry... I know you must think I'm really weird.. I just really hate storms..." Her hands were shaky as he began to rub his hands over her back.

With a happy sigh, Koby turned Rayna so she was facing his chest and pulled her close to him in a tight embrace, their bodies as close as they were the night before. He rested his chin on top of her head, closing his eyes, his arms embracing her like he was the castle protecting her from the storm. "You aren't weird," Koby said softly, bringing a hand up to her cheek, softly rubbing it with his thumb, comforting her, "Everybody is afraid of something," Koby held her tightly once more before letting her go, the cool air coming inbetween their close bodies. Koby's hand trailed down his back as he let her go, his other hand still at her face. They weren't very far apart, but Koby already felt empty without her in his arms. He frowned a little and little Rayna's face to his own. He leaned in, and whispered across her lips, "I hope you won't mind, now that you're sober too," Koby softly kissed her lips, as he had the night before but something different was exerted. Passion, maybe? Desire? Lust? No, not lust. Koby had felt that all too many times to feel lust. This was something different. It was something he hadn't felt before. Did he actually like this girl? His lips were still upon her's, is hand that cupped her chin, leaving her face as he left her lips. He sighed, becoming aware that she may not have even approved of his actions, but however so, he looked back at his bubbling concoctions.

"The sauce is ready," Koby smirked, pointing at the sauce. He grabbed the pan full of water and pasta and grabbed a drainer. He poured the pan over the drainer, the drainer catching the pasta, letting the water run free. Koby came up behind Rayna as she stirred the sauce and curled his arm around her small waist, pouring the pasta into the sauce. "You keep stirring," Koby whispered into her ear as he placed down the drainer on the counter. His other hand found it's way to Rayna's waist, holding her close to his bare chest. He liked how short she was - it made him feel like her guardian of sorts. Sighing, he started to whisper in Rayna's ear. "I'm sorry about last night and the way I made you feel," Koby began, his voice so soft, like velvet. "I didn't mean to intrude on your personal space, or make you feel uncomfortable, but you" Koby nibbled her ear lobe as Rayna's stirred the pasta into the sauce, "Are one beautiful girl, and you're making me feel," Koby was lost for words, pulling his head away from her ear, "You're making me feel...wanted," Koby sort of choked on the word, as if only realising it for the first time. This girl he held around the waist, so closely against his body, he knew there was something in him that she wanted, and he knew for sure what he wanted from her. And to his surprise, it wasn't the usual thing he wanted from girls that looked like her. Koby had actually meant it - she made him feel wanted. The only reason he was a player, was because the girls he was ever with were players like him. They played his game, and when he got this close to them, they pulled another trick on him, him walking away the fool.

No, Koby wasn't going to do this, this time. He was going to change.

"Everybody is afraid of something," Koby held her tightly once more before letting her go, the cool air coming in between their close bodies. Rayna was living in the moment. Even though her mind often wandered back to her horrible past, and the scars she had on her back. "I hope you won't mind, now that you're sober too," She could feel it coming. The kiss, as his lips came close to hers and they locked on. He was special to her, the kiss last night wasn't just a drunken kiss. Now, now it meant even more. As he pulled away, she wasn't done. She had never felt a connection with anyone. Reality was just a dream and currently she was being swept off her feet. "The sauce is ready," Koby smirked, pointing at the sauce. She turned back to the hot pot which had started this whole thing. She continually stirred the pot as he began to set out the pasta.

"I'm sorry about last night and the way I made you feel," Koby began, his voice so soft, like velvet. [/b]"I didn't mean to intrude on your personal space, or make you feel uncomfortable, but you"[/b] Koby nibbled her ear lobe as Rayna's stirred the pasta into the sauce, she wouldn't stop him, "Are one beautiful girl, and you're making me feel," Koby seemed to be stuck on words. the voice inside her head chimed in, Damn.. What was that line again? Oh right! But Koby finished his sentence, "You're making me feel...wanted," She smiled. Though she couldn't relate. Her father had wanted to beat her and boys had always wanted her. She knew she was attractive, which was most of why she never trusted guys. They just wanted her beauty, not the real. Then she had a reality check. He knew nothing about her. She wasn't about to start telling him her life story but he literally knew her name, and that was it. She immediately backed away from him, not saying a word. Placing her hand over her forehead she held back her tears. She was tired of the lies and games.

A frown immediately ruined Koby's happy features, suddenly becoming lost. Rayna had backed a way from him. "What...what's wrong?" Koby saw the swell of tears forming in Rayna's eyes. He started walking towards her, to grab her hand, but she stepped away from him. The food was boiling at this point. Koby turned the stove to off, and placed the pot on the counter. "Rayna, I-I didn't mean to..." Koby didn't know what he didn't mean to do. He meant everything he had said to her. What was wrong this time? Koby's frown deepened, a crash of thunder rocking the house, rolling on for half a minute. Koby felt cold with no shirt on, so vulnerable when this girl in front of him looked at him in a way of disbelief. "What have I done wrong?" Koby asked. He soon became enraged. He had been nothing but polite, helpful, caring...what more did she want? What was wrong with him this time? " Rayna..." His voice was ragged, angry and impatient. He was growing tired of this toying game, being pushed away when he was being so caring. "I'm trying here, don't leave me hanging," Koby's voice was angry, but not loud. "Whatever's wrong, you can tell me!" He said so lowly, so furiously, he was worried he may have scared her.

She was trying to keep herself together. All she saw was the shadow of her father, coming straight for her. She couldn't cling to Koby, either he'd end up leaving or worse, turn out like her dad. Her crazed mind was blocking out most of Koby's pleads. "What have I done wrong?" She grasped her head tighter, trying to get him out of her head. She could hear her own cries, and screams. It was the last night happening all over again. The thunder roared again and she hugged herself, trying to protect herself from the man she once called a father. His clenched fists and anger made her knees shake. She heard Koby, " Rayna..." His voice was ragged, angry and impatient, just like her fathers. She was right. "I'm trying here, don't leave me hanging," Koby's voice was angry, but not loud. "Whatever's wrong, you can tell me!" She then fell to the ground. Laying in a curled up ball this was all too much. she could feel his hand go for her but she hit it away. "Go away! Go away!" She kept yelling, over and over. The storm seemed to get louder and the waterfalls began. She could hear the footsteps going away as she yelled one more time, "Go away dad! Go away!"

Koby was too far to catch Rayna as she fell to the ground into a heap, hitting his hand away as he went to her air. "Go away! Go away! Go away Dad! Go away!" Rayna kept repeating, and repeating. Koby became stunned as soon as she said "dad". Dad? What? Koby was so confused. "Rayna?" Koby said harshly, approaching her. Rayna shivered, whimpering beneath Koby's harsh glare. That was when it hit him - Rayna was traumatized. He thought it was rather odd that a woman of her age would be scared of storms. But for her to yell "go away dad" brought something to the surface in Koby. His eyes softening, Koby fell to his knees beside Rayna, not moving closer to her yet as she cried out loud. It was a terrible sound, wrecking Koby inside. He had no idea how to handle this delicate situation. "Rayna, it's me, Koby" His voice was soothing, urgent. He reached his hand out to rub her back but she slapped it away, her eyes scared and moved slightly away from her, her cries becoming loud. Koby then dragged Rayna into his arms, fighting against her punches, scoring scratches against his chest that he knew he'd feel later. He felt water roll down his chest, tears from Rayna. " Rayna, calm down, it's me, Koby. You're safe. You're safe," He cooed, cradling her head in his arms. She still tried resisting him, biting his bicep hard, drawing blood before calming down as Koby didn't react. He winced slightly, but instead turned her around so he could see her face. She stopped resisting, no more violent movements. Her eyes were still scared, still wondering through Koby's eyes. "You're safe Rayna, you're with me. You're safe, it's Koby," Koby said so softly, moving hair out of Rayna's face, "You're safe with me," Koby held Rayna tightly against him. He was sitting with his legs crossed, Rayna curled up in a ball in his lap, her head against his chest. She was still sobbing, not as loudly, but still just as heavily. Koby pressed firm lips against her forehead. He looked back and wiped tears away from her cheeks. "Stop crying, Rayna, you're fine with me, shh, shh," Koby cooed, whispering. She started to calm down, closing her eyes, her face flushed red from crying. Koby kept still, the silence dragging on. He then finally worked up the guts to look in her eyes again, fearing that they were still scared. But they were, she was still frightened. He sighed, pulling her tightly against him, "Rayna," He said so carefully, "Why...what happened?" Koby asked. He didn't know how to word it, lost for words in her breakdown.

She pushed him off. She was tired of him beating her. The bruises would all stop tonight. " Rayna, calm down, it's me, Koby. You're safe. You're safe," He cooed, cradling her head in his arms. She still tried resisting him, biting his bicep hard, drawing blood before calming down as Koby didn't react. She wouldn't let him win. But then the black went away and all that was left was her tears. Koby pressed firm lips against her forehead. He looked back and wiped tears away from her cheeks. "Stop crying, Rayna, you're fine with me, shh, shh," Koby cooed, whispering. Rayna eyes flickered around the room trying to get out of this nightmare. Though she hadn't had one for about a month, this kind of thing was common for her. Changes and people let the evil creep into her head. Leaving her at a loss for words. Pulling her tightly against him, "Rayna," He said so carefully, "Why...what happened?" Koby asked. She didn't know what to tell him. The truth? That she has mental break downs because she was beat as a child? It was so embarrassing. Covering her face she tried to speak, "I... I'm so sorry..." but mostly just coughing up words like a hair ball. She didn't really know how to say what she was going to say. Taking a deep breath in she decided to tell her story. "When I was young, from since I was around 7, my father used to beat me. It was father my mother.... passed away...Whenever storms rolled around he'd blame me and.. well hit me... On other nights when he'd drown himself in misery and alcohol he would turn off the lights and hurt me... So I can't stand storms, and being in a dark cold room. It just reminds me of... him. I guess you can say I break down... But it becomes so real, the nightmare..." The words were soft and covered in fear. She wrapped her arms around him as she waited for him to say "You crazy bitch." But he just held her. Probably processing her sad life story. She wanted to tell him about how she ran and how she got here, but she was just too frazzled to talk anymore. She could another kiss on her head as she began to hum the song Stay, like she was before.

Koby was shocked, or sad, or...he didn't know how he felt about the situation before him. Rayna was beaten? Anger, instantly rose, but he remained still, pulling her tighter as she wrapped her arms around him. The storm outside was still heavy, loud. "It's okay," Was all he managed to say. He wanted to kill the sick bastard that did this to her. Her own father? Sick, disgusting. Koby felt the pain in his chest, in his arm from the scratches and bite mark on his body. He didn't move to check them out. He kept still, just holding Rayna; being a friend. His hand would brush through her hair every now and then, trying to calm her racing heart. Probably trying to calm his own. "I'm sorry," Koby started, pulling Rayna back from him, "I didn't mean to...I mean, I thought" Koby trailed off in thought, leaving his words to linger in the air. What did he think? "I thought you were just mad at me again, I got angry," Koby's voice was soft, his hand still caressing her, "You keep pushing me away," Koby's voice dropped to a low murmur, "But I can understand why now," Koby's words were drowned out by a crack of lightning and then blackness. The power had gone out. Koby gasped, his body stiffening, waiting for Rayna to explode in tears in his arms, but surprisingly, she stayed tough, strong in the darkness. "I said, I can understand why now," Koby repeated. "I'm sorry I was so...full on, I should probably have gotten to know you better," Koby's voice was still quiet, quieter than before in fear of frightening her, with the whole house now pitch black. What time was it? It was so dark! It would have to be at least eight at night, not too late. "I'd never, ever hurt you, Rayna. I was raised by my mum, taught to respect women," Koby grimaced at the thought, remembering how sleezy he first came off as, "I...You're safe with me, okay?" Koby was now whispering in her ear, and it sounded urgent, desperate, as if he was waiting for a sign of reassurance himself in her safety.

She could hear his words and they wrapped around her, making a safe zone. The tears were lightening up as he kept his voice calm. He did care. As the lights went out she wasn't scared, because she was still in her safe zone. He was her safe zone. "I said, I can understand why now," Koby repeated. "I'm sorry I was so...full on, I should probably have gotten to know you better," Rayna nodded as she agreed they still didn't know each other well. She was scared and he was was strong, for her. That's really all she needed. "I'd never, ever hurt you, Rayna. I was raised by my mum, taught to respect women," She squeezed his arm, remembering how he had hit on her a mere 24 hours ago. She wasn't sure if she believed him but she definitely wasn't going to leave during the darkness and storm that surrounded them. "I...You're safe with me, okay?" Koby was now whispering in her ear, as she was trying to regulate her breathing. She opened her eyes, but it was the same as her eyes closed, pitch black. Rayna could feel him breathing, so she knew she wasn't alone. But she did want light. So she gently slipped her hand into her pocket and grabbed her phone. Pressing the button the was now a dim light in the room. It was sort of eerie, the flashing of lighting and being in a scary room. She looked back up to the face that was so caring and full of concern. Putting her arms around her neck, she adjusted herself so she was now facing him as the cupped his face and kissed him. The lighting struck as she pressed her lips upon his and it was almost surreal. Like a scene straight from a movie. "Thank you.." She whispered as she gave him one last peck on the cheek. Removing her hands from his face she slid her hands into his. This might have been moving fast but he seemed like a genuine guy and she was maybe getting feelings for him.

Koby felt Rayna's hands slip into his own. Her face was so close to his, he could feel it in the dark. He knew how soft her lips would be against his, how much of urge they would feel if they kissed again. But he knew the timing was inappropriate. He couldn't ruin this for her; for him. With her legs wrapped around him, Koby stood up slowly, and found his way back to the bench, placing Rayna on the bench in front of him with her legs still wrapped around him. Koby had put his hands on either side of Rayna's body, and he was suddenly breathing a little more heavily than he was before. He found her lips once more, something desperate exerting from him. He wanted her. But it was a different kind of want. His lips started soft, before becoming urgent, rushed, crushing against hers. His hands left the bench and made it to Rayna's back, pulling her close against him. His hands wondered their way to her waist, to her hips, pulling her against him harder. He parted his mouth softly, his kiss still urgent. He hesitated for a moment before deepening their kiss. That was when Rayna pull away from him. A look of sudden realisation overcame Koby, a look of apology recovering his realisation.

Koby stood up slowly, and found his way back to the bench, placing Rayna on the bench in front of him with her legs still wrapped around him. She felt the urge to kiss him again. Just a soft kiss, to reassure that he cared. They both leaned in, his lips started soft, before becoming urgent, rushed, crushing against hers. It wasn't just passion, but full of feeling. As she felt his hands moving along her body, along the old bruises, he pulled her closer. He hesitated for a moment before deepening their kiss. Then she pulled away. His eyes were saying sorry but his hands were still on her sides. "Is this all you wanted? Just to butter me up and then sleep with me? Leaving me all alone again? This probably doesn't mean anything to you." Koby was insulted. She could see the rage spreading over his face as his grip tightened. "Why are you always like this?! Back and forth! You're ruining the moment." He complained, voice growing louder with each word. Her smile had completely faded now, leaving her eyes to drop. She got off of him and began to walk away. "The moment huh... Sorry for ruining your plans." The storm wasn't letting up but Rayna had figured out she was right. Maybe all this "back and forth" was from her stupid hormones. Either way, she was done. If boys were this much trouble, then who needed them. She could hear Koby coming up behind her, but she wouldn't let his touch control her this time. "You should go." No eye contact, she knew that she'd just crumble into his hands again. Not waiting for a reply she walked away, heading to her room. Even if he didn't leave right away, she was done with the manipulation. Closing the door behind her she went through her bag on the floor of her room. She took out Freddie, the stuffed turtle her mother had given her and clutched it in her hands. "It's just you and me Freddie." She said as she laid on her bed.

"You should go," Cold, heartless, merciless. Rayna's word stabbed at Koby without prevail. Koby glared at her, a smirk no longer claiming his tan features. "Fine," He replied, cold and harsh. The rain was letting up anyway, maybe just enough for Koby to start heading home. His shirt and pants were still in a bunch in the corner, still soaking from the rain. Koby thought he could put the clothes he borrowed in the post and hope they get it as mail. Rayna had stormed pretty quickly up to her room, leaving Koby alone, half naked in the kitchen down stairs. It was getting cold and he knew it was getting late. Maybe he could call a cab. Reaching for his phone in the back pocket of the jeans he borrowed, he realised it was flat. The battery was dead since he had left Jake and Andrew's apartment. Koby groaned, edging on a growl in frustration. "Bullshit!" He half shouted. He was angry, not only at Rayna, more at himself for being so selfish, so clueless. He walked in long strides towards the front door where the rain could be heard the loudest. Maybe the rain hadn't let up after all. Koby had a frown, ruining his perfect composure, as he picked up his clothes and jacket, slipping on his sogging shoes. He couldn't be bothered with a shirt, heat was radiating out of him from pure anger. With a sharp, "Fuck you, Rayna," as a yell, he opened the front door, slamming it hard and fast behind him.

Koby was furious, completely shattered and utterly confused in Rayna. He was walking alone, as the rain pelted down on his skin, stinging the scratches and bite mark on his skin. This angered him further, remembering that he sat there with her, holding her. She's too emotional, too temperamental, too high maintenance, Koby thought, making up reasons as to why he shouldn't keep holding onto some form of hope in their friendship. He walked alone in the rain, back towards Jake and Andrew's apartment, soaking wet and cold to the bone.

Koby opened up the door, not even bothering to knock, letting himself into the apartment where he found Andrew, Jake and that girl sitting in the kitchen. He glared at them all, water dripping rapidly off his skin. Anger was pure in his eyes, hatred towards everyone of them. He walked straight pass them, with so much as a glance from Andrew, they seemed to know better than to talk to him. Although, Koby knew Jake would soon be after him. Koby walked towards the laundry room, stripping down to just the underwear he borrowed, chucking them into the washing machine before turning around to find a towel. He pulled the underwear off from underneath the towel, adding them to the washing machine. After setting the cycle on the machine, Koby slouched against the wall, letting the noise of the washing machine drown out his thoughts. He still hadn't inspected his scratches or bite mark, and he felt the need to neglect it.

"Where the hell did you go!? Not even a word as you just leave? And in a storm like this?! What has come over you!" Jake yelled at Koby, his voice not filled with anger, but filled with concern, anger just behind the words. Koby raised his eyes to look at Jake, his eyes narrowing into slits, glaring at his best friend. All he wanted to do was to tell him to go away, to leave him be. But he knew Jake better than that, he'd stick around until Koby was better again. However, this made Koby angrier, seeing Jake care for Koby, just like Koby had cared for Rayna. He clenched his fists in his lap as he slouched against a wall, sliding to the floor. "What's going on dude?" Jake was soft again, kneeling to Koby's level. "It's that girl, isn't it?" Koby sighed. Jake knew him all too well. But Koby remained silent, choking on his words. Koby's face softened, his eyes going back to normal, the stressing lines of a frown disappearing back into a calm expression. Koby cleared his throat, his voice sounding so quiet after the shouting that had just been echoing in the small apartment, "I hate her," Koby said. Even though his face showed calm, his voice held so much bitterness, hatred and regret that it took Jake by surprise, his face becoming confused. "She screws me over. She's screwed me over so much in the past 24 hours that all of my screw overs are nothing," Koby spat out each word, trying not to say her name. He didn't want to think about her. He hated her. "I was different with her Jake, I was different," Koby tried explaining, but his cheeks flared up in embarrassment, as he would never admit this to his best friend. Koby was meant to be the macho one - not Jake. Koby groaned, a pain in his bicep was forming. Probably internal bruising. "I don't care anymore, man," Koby finished. Koby lowered his head, hiding his eyes as they swelled up with water. He wouldn't cry because he was sad or because he screwed up - oh no, that's just not Koby - he would cry because he hated Rayna, because he was screwed over and done for.

"Fuck you, Rayna," It was a knife being pushed deep into her side. Oooch.. She was overwhelmed with feelings. What a horrible past few days it had been. Besides those moments of warmth and comfort. But they were fake. They were all as fake as the knock off Gucci bags they sold on the street. One thing she liked to do when she was depressed was stretch. It was like pulling a rubber band until it breaks. The tension build up and release was so soothing. Smiling, Rayna descended into her left leg splits. Still holding onto Freddie. The quiet knock on her door made her fall over on the floor. With a small chuckle she went to the door. She opened it, praying to god it wasn't Koby, when she saw Jasmine. "Oh hey.." she said, fully opening her door. "Woah. What happened to you? Hahaha! A cry fest?!" Jasmine laughing. Rayna was more embarrassed than anything. "Yeah... Just having a tough time adjusting, you know?" She could see a plot being developed in Jasmines head. "Wanna get some food? I can't seem to find the other girls at the moment... It'll be fun!" She promised. But Rayna knew she had no money, therefor not a big help to this "adventure". "Sorry.. Totally broke right now", more like always broke. Rayna blinked at the fashionista, hoping to get rid of her and go back to her sobbing party. "I'll pay! I really don't feel like going alone and I'm feeling generous!" Jasmine winked as she pulled Rayna downstairs. Oh boy...

"I was different with her Jake, I was different," He wasn't really sure what to feel about this whole situation. He'd never had to deal with Koby greal feelings. But Jake could tell this girl was trouble. He knew Koby could come off as a jerk, which if he had at the beginning, probably ruined his chances. "They'll be another girl.." Trying to be positive. "I don't care anymore, man," Koby finished. Jake was frantically panicking in his head. "Want anything? I don't suggest alcohol.., Just well... You know." He scurried to the kitchen and grabbed a chocolate bar he had been hiding. Even guys need an emergency chocolate stash. He threw the bar at Koby, and watched it hit his head. "Cheer up. Wanna go grab some pizza with me?" But Koby was sitting in a pool of misery and hatred. Okay then... Jake walked off, quickly sliding on his shoes. "I'll be back soon okay? Getting pizza,since we're all hungry." Not waiting for a reply, he ran into the car trying not to get soaked. Driving in this storm was horrible. He wasn't a fan of driving in the first place, having lost one of his friends to a drunk driving accident. As he pulled up to the store he noticed two girls inside, waiting for pizza. He put on his charming smile and walked in.

Rayna rushed into the pizza place which they happened to pull up to. After driving up and down main street they settled for Papa John's Pizza. The little bell rung as she ran inside. "Holy it is really raining!" She cried, looking behind her for Jasmine. But of course, the girl was trying to open her pink bedazzled umbrella. Sighing, Rayna opened the door and yelled out, "Forget about your dumb umbrella! Just get inside!" The exotic beauty running inside in her heels was a sight to see. She did a pretty good job too, not tripping once. Letting Jasmine take the lead, they got 2 medium pizzas. One cheese one pepperoni. "Sticking with the classics" Rayna smiled. Jasmine was already checking out one of he employees when they heard another ring of the bell which had been strategically placed over the door. Rayna looked over and saw Jake. She remembered him from a shoot they did together a few months ago. At least she thought it was Jake. "Jake?" She questioned, and he immediately looked up at her. Yup, it was definitely him. That charming smile was unforgettable. Jasmine was still preoccupied flirting with the dough boy as Rayna walked over to the hot blonde she had once met before.

Koby felt something hit his head before the object landed in his lap. It seemed to be chocolate. Koby grimaced, he wasn't in the mood for food, yet alone sweets. His head was hung, but Jake was persistent. "Cheer up. Wanna go grab some pizza with me?" Jake askd. He was trying, but Koby was stubborn. He remained silent, looking at the ground of the laundry room, still wrapped in only a towel. "I'l be back soon okay? Getting pizza, since we're all hungry," And with that, Jake left the room, leaving Koby to sit in misery and regret. He took this chance then to finally draw his eyes to the scratch marks and bite mark on his chest and on his arm. It was bruising already, the blood had dried, but some had washed away during his trek through the rain. The scratches weren't too terrible, but they stung, little half moons dragged down his chest. A slight blueish colour was covering his bicep around the bite mark. Koby looked away before analysing the pain, resisting to remember how those injuries occured. But he couldn't stop it.His body was a constant reminder of how close she had gotten. He remembered Rayna fighting against him, scratching and biting him, leading onto him comforting her, holding her so close to him. He remembered her lips and how they felt on his...oh how foolish he had been. Tears swelled in his eyes, finally overflowing calmly. He wasn't crying, sobbing nor having a fit of sorts. He just simply let his tears fall.

"Jake?" Jake looked down at the girl he knew he'd taken photo shoots with, previous months earlier. She was still stunningly beautiful, her eyes still so large, but rimmed red. Why was this? Jake felt concern and compassion already to this accquaintence. "Rayna," The way he said her name sounded as if a smile played on his lips; which there was. He was surprised to see her in such a...a wreck. Something clearly must have gone wrong, but Jake was too polite to mention anything. "How have you been?" Jake smiled warmly at her, his perfect teeth shining. He thought asking that would be the safest way to head in the general direction as to why her eyes were red. "I am.. good" Rayna choked on the word good. Jake noticed the slightest tone in her last word, knowing too well from his experiences with Koby and Andrew, that she didn't want to talk about it. "How about you?" Rayna asked, so innocent. A smile returned to play on Jake's lips, "I am perfect," He said before seeing the line before him move, a girl that Rayna was clearly accompanying bouncing to her side. "Don't go anyway, I'm just going to order," Jake moved up to order four large pizzas, two hawiian, one pepperoni and one meat lovers. He returned to Rayna and her friend, who had so obviously been gossiping, to wait for his pizza. "So what brings you to this part of California?" Jake asked, casually making small talk.

Rayna watched as Jake went up to the counter to order his pizzas. At this time Jasmine had notices the eye candy that had walked through the door just moments ago. "Who is that?" Jasmine asked almost licking her lips with lust. Rayna smiled, it'd be nice to say that he was something she couldn't have. "That's my..." She should have said boyfriend, you know, just to show she was just as good as Jasmine. But she didn't want Jake to end up in an awkward situation. "He's my friend" Jasmine smiled, she could tell that Jasmine was gonna start being a flirt, "But he's gay..." She said just as Jake walked back over. "So what brings you to this part of California?" Jake's tone was friendly and she could tell he was just being polite by making small talk. "I actually got a scholarship for Pepperdine University!" Rayna could have gone for a hug right there. She remembered how she told him about going here on her own and how she lived in her car. Jake gave her a congratulations smile, "Carry out for Jasmine!" Rayna knew that was her cue to go. But she quickly tore out a piece ofpaper and wrote down her number. "Keep in touch okay? I just moved here and have yet to see what this city has to offer." With that, she waved good bye and went back to the car with Jasmine.

"Keep in touch okay? I just moved here and have yet to see what this city has to offer," Rayna tore out a piece of paper and scribbled down her number and passed it to Jake. Jake smiled, glancing at the digits on the paper, a neat little smiley face at the end. Jake smiled and looked up at the girl before him, "Alright, I'll give you a call when I get the chance," Jake tucked the piece of paper in the back of his pants and waved good bye as Rayna left the pizza shop with her friend. "Carry out for Jake!" Jake went and received his meal and quickly ran outside into his car.

As Jake rolled up to his apartment, he noticed all the lights were out. As he opened the front door he heard Andrew calling out to Koby. "Hey guys, if you find the counters in the kitchen underneath the sink, there should be candles there and a lighter," Jake pointed out, slowly making his way to the kitchen. He placed the pizza's on the table and used his hands to guide himself to his sink, helping Andrew find the candles. They were soon lit up and a dull, warm light filled the kitchen. "Koby, come get some food. Help yourself guys," Jake gestured to the pizzas.

Koby soon joined them in the kitchen, still wrapped in a towel. He sat on a stool, chowing down some pizza, slowly. He didn't seem to have an appetite. Jake finished his food quickly, "I'm going upstairs. Gotta make a phone call," Jake said, smiling. "Who to?" Koby asked, his face and tone expressionless. "An old friend I ran into at the pizza shop," Jake said and made his way upstairs to his room. Jake dialed in the numbers on the piece of paper Rayna gave him then pressed call. *Beep, beep, beep, beep..*Ring, ring* The phone connected to the other end, a hurried voice answering, "Hello? Rayna speaking," Jake smiled as he heard her voice.

Jasmine really wasn't the best of drivers. She drove fast and furiously, but had a smile on her face as she lip synced the songs on the radio. Rayna had learned to be a good driver, she couldn't afford tickets, or people wasting her time. As Jasmine pulled up to the house Rayna snatched the pizzas and ran to the door. The rain seemed to be dying down as they went inside. She tried the switches for the light, nope. As she carefully walked to the kitchen table she could hear Jasmine yapping away. "Yes! Okay! I know he was there... Sorry! Well we can have another party this weekend? There's already a party planned? When were you going to tell me?" But Rayna heard the voice fade as she grabbed herself a piece of cheese pizza. Pizza had been a staple with small pizzas being so cheap, and her appetite being so small. As she finished her piece she grabbed a can of sprite from the fridge. She could hear Jasmines heel clicking as she got closer. Now was time for peace, quiet, and maybe a nap. As she was almost at the top of the stairs her ringtone was playing. She followed the tune as she began to sprint to her phone. As she picked it up she didn't recognize the number, a new modelling gig?! She did a little dance before answering the call, "Hello? Rayna speaking,"
"Hey there, enjoying your pizza?" Rayna smiled, of course she knew who this was.
"Well I had a piece and it was good, haha! How was yours?"
"Well there was this girl at the pizza shop and I was too distracted to ask her out."
Rayna giggled and ran her hand through her hair. He was cute.
"Oh really? Well if you had asked her out, what would you have said?"
"Well," He paused. She could tell he was planning out his words. "Hey, so.. I might be having a party next weekend. Did you wanna go? With me?"
Rayna didn't feel the same sensation like when she was with Koby. Maybe it's because he wasn't here in person. "Well if you had asked, she probably would have said she'll need to check her schedule and what time will you pick her up?"

"Jake, what are you doing?" Koby walked into Jake's room, now fully clothed. Jake brought a finger up to his lips as if to shush him. "Well, would 6 be too early?" Jake had a smiled in his voice. Koby frowned. Was Jake getting a date? To what? Koby sat down on Jake's bed bedside him. "No, that should be fine," Came the reply. "That's great. Well, I guess I will see you then?"
"Of course, looking forward to it. Bye!"
"Bye," Jake hung up with a smile on his face. His first semi-date party-partner in quite a long while. He turned to now face Koby. "If it hadn't been obvious, I was on the phone," Jake laughed, standing up. It sounded like the rain had stopped completely, the lights slowly flickering back on. "Who though?" Koby asked, standing up with him. As the lights flickered on, both of their eyes had to adjust to the new light. "You'll meet her this weekend at my party," Jake was cheery and heading out of his room towards the stairs. "You're having a party?" Koby raised an eyebrow, a clear smirk on his face. "Well, I'm sorry but I doubt I'll be turning up. Take a picture of her or something for me," Koby had other plans in his mind for the weekend.
"Aw, now don't be like that Koby," Jake placed a hand on Koby's shoulder as they made their way down the stairs. "If it makes you feel better, there will be lots of other girls,"
Koby laughed, something cold. "There's only one girl there for me at the moment, Jake." Koby said so cold, so lost in thought.
"Well, at least come. We'll all be drunk and having too much fun for you to worry about it," Jake smiled brightly at Koby and Koby tried to grin back. How could this guy be so nice? "Fine," Koby shrugged Jake's hand off his shoulder, "But don't invite that stupid girl sorority, "
"Deal," Jake said, nodding before coming into the kitchen, spotting Fionna and Andrew.

"Party here, this weekend." He announced before going into the lounge room to continue playing games.

"That's great. Well, I guess I see then?" Rayna bit her lip. This was definitely more like the fairytale she had planned. ""Of course, looking forward to it. Bye!" She replied before hanging up the phone. She looked in her bag of outfits, of course no one here had seen these but she felt like she needed something fresh. The lights then came on, it was a sign of... fate. Hmmm... I wonder where Fionna is... I haven't really seen her since last night.. Rayna knocked on each of the bedroom doors, getting a moan from Rose and silence from the others. Then she heard the door opening. "Fionna?" Rayna shuffled down the stairs. "Hey! Where have you been? Oh, and what happened to you at the party last night?" You'd figure it'd be Fionna asking these questions but Rayna had seemed to warm up to her. The way she smiled was nice plus she seemed genuine. "Spill!" She smiled looking at the girl who was still taking off her shoes.

Rose heard a knock at her door. She groaned in response. It can't be anywhere near time to wake up. She rolled onto her stomache and reached for her phone. It was only 9pm. She was so tired from the day after the party. So many guys had been touching her, she thought. She had smelt of nothing but alcohol and cigarettes. Nothing knew, she mused. She remembered seeing a guy go upstairs with Rayna. How cute.

But today, after multiple coffees, she had gone to her studio, to create some sculptures. Which had caused her to feel even more tired than before. The rain had dragged out the time immensely, and she was drenched by the time she had gotten home. She had no idea that Rayna was even home.

Stretching, Rose stood up and got out of bed to see where the girls had been. She walked down the hallway and to the balcony of steps. She saw that downstairs near the front door, Rayna was interrogating Fionna. "Oh hey there, ladies" Rose purred, crossing her arms over her chest. "And what are we up to?" Rose stood as if she were a queen, expecting answers to be flying at her straight away.

Fionna had stayed a bit longer to talk to Andrew as he ate pizza. The room seemed much more comfortable with the light of the candles. After a nice yet awkward conversation, the rain let up and she decided it was time to leave. She felt comfortable enough with him to give him a small hug goodbye and said. " Sorry again, about the whole freaking out over the dark thing." She hoped that he wouldn't think she was strange. Just as she was going to leave, Koby told her about a party that was going to be held here on the weekend. She looked and Andrew and had a moment of boldness. " So long as you're going to be here." she left quickly after having said that so he wouldn't see her blushing furiously.

She arrived home and was just taking off her shoes at the door when Rayna came up to her. " Fionna? Hey where have you been? Oh, and what happened to you at the part last night? " Fionna was a little taken aback by Rayna's sudden change. She didn't seem tolike her very much at the party last night. " Oh, well, a guy left his wallet here last night, and I was just returning it to him. It started raining hard, so I had to stay there for a few hours. He was nice," she said and blushed. She looked up as Rose spoke. She didn't know her as well as she knew Rayna so she waved at her shyly.

" Oh, well, a guy left his wallet here last night, and I was just returning it to him. It started raining hard, so I had to stay there for a few hours. He was nice," she said and blushed. Rayna eyed her, "A boy huh?" with a laugh she dropped the protective sibling act. "Oh hey there, ladies" Rose purred, crossing her arms over her chest. Rayna did the same, but in a don't mess with me sort of way. "And what are we up to?" Rayna wasn't really sure what to think about Rose. She seemed beautiful, full of curves, everything guys desired. But she also seemed cocky and well, hopeless. Like she didn't have a plan and didn't care. At the party, she was, partying to say the least. "Just chatting." Rayna said sharply. She was never very open to new "friends". As she glanced back at Rose she could tell she was unimpressed with that answer. "Well I'm going to bed." Then briskly walked off without any good byes. Though she did give a slight smile to Fionna as she mouthed 'we'll talk tomorrow'. Rayna was seriously tired after such a long day.

Rose was pleased with the reaction she got out of Rayna, smirking to herself before walking off to her bed room again just to fall back asleep. She turned off the lights in her room and crawled back into her bed, snuggling back down into the welcoming arms of her doona's. She soon fell asleep again.

Over the following days before the party, Rose completed multiple pieces of art sculptures, proudly showing them off to anyone who would bother turning their heads in her direction. She would take pictures from all kinds of angles before posting them onto facebook, before showing anyone who would ask her how her work was going. Rose hadn't heard much from anybody, particularly any boy's in her like. Which she was really disappointed about. But, one thing she was sure excited about was the party that was happening this weekend. She was giggling, getting all excited the night before and decided to stop by the shops to get more credit for her phone which was expiring. Behind her, she saw tall dark and handsome. She looked behind her, raising an eyebrow, a mischievous grin upon her already manipulating features. Placing one hand on her hip she turned towards the man. "Why, hello." Rose nodded her head in his direction, capturing the full attention of this male specimen with her curves and sexy short shorts. The man faced her, a raised eye brow matching her own, "Yes?" He wasn't taken aback by the beauty of the woman standing before him. If anything, he was clearly distracted.

Rose soon realised who she had been checking out. Instantly, she got into her gossip mode. "You were at my party last weekend. You...you went up stairs with some chick. Rennie...Ronda...Raynie..Rayna! You went upstairs with Rayna!" An audible groan escaped the lips from the man. He moved in front of Rose, ordering his credit for his mobile too. "What of it?" Koby glared at her. "You seeing her?" Rose licked her lips, her eyes flirting with this hot piece of man. Koby rolled his eyes, ignoring her. Rose quickly gathered up the gist of things, figuring if anything, they would not have contacted each other. Rayna was too up tight anyway.

As Koby began to walk away, Rose quickly caught up to him, "Are you going to that party this weekend?" She pressed, brushing his arm with her own. He didn't seem to notice. "Yes," He said, turning the secluded corner, hidden away from everybody else to where his car was parked. Rose abruptly moved in front of him, forcing him to lean up against the wall. "What?" He whined. Rose placed her arms either side of Koby, eyeing his body off. "Come with me to the party," She breathed to him. She was so much like him. So...manipulative in the sense of using her body against him. So much cleavage was showing he couldn't help but stare. "We could have fun you know.." Rose didn't know why she was interested in this man. Something about Rayna having him before her peeved her off, but now she wanted to show her that she could also get him. She cocked an eyebrow, leaning in close to him, pressing her body close to his, edging him. Koby breathed out a "Fine" before pushing her away from him and climbing into his car. Rose straightened herself and smiled mischievously, waving good bye. She was pleased with this.

The rest of the week was filled with work. Rayna had gotten another photo shoot, thank god, and all of these classes and knowledge was incredible. She was learning things relevant to her future and was finally on the right path. Though it was slightly hard to focus when she knew Jake would be calling in a few hours, like clock work. He was really a gentleman, asking if it was still okay, and how she was doing. But she remembered Koby during every one of those phone calls. How sweet Koby had been and how she shouldn't have been so stand-off-ish. She let Jake in because she knew him already. They had to be so close for that shoot she had no choice but to let him. With a few more sketches in her notebook, it was getting pretty full. Not to self: Get new notebook. Rayna had also spent a lot of time with Fionna, going on walks and to coffee shops. They talked about Andrew and Jake and even Koby. But Fionna hadn't clued in that Koby was the same one living with Andrew.

It was finally the end of the week, party time. Rayna hadn't been able to get a new dress but she did find her favorite skirt and blouse, as she slid them on she heard a knock on the door. Sighing she opened the door. It was Fionna, who drew a bright smile to her face. "Do I look okay? I didn't wanna look too whore-ish and yet kind of sophisticated..." Fionna's little giggle made Rayna's nerve calm down as she said, "You look good! Now help me!" They scurried off to the F room as Rayna began to dig through her closet. "Ta-da!" She screamed with excitement as she pulled out a little black dress. Putting it on both of the girls went to the bathroom to do their make up, ignoring the fact Rose was even in the house.

Rose was on top of everything half an hour before she was due to the party. What was the time? Five? People weren't expected there until around six. She couldn't suppress the squeal when she put on her dress, her back bare and the sparkling silver fabric hugging her sexy curves. Rose had spent up to an hour working her hair, letting it fall around her face naturally and yet so beautifully. She usually liked it to have "zing" but tonight, she was dressed to impress rather than only drawing the attention of every male. She had done her make, a natural yet sassy appeal, and put on some matching heels to her silver dress. By the time Rose finished checking herself out in her mirror and finishing some final touch ups, she walked out of her room ready to leave, it was 5:30.

Frowning, Rose wanted to know where Rayna and Fionna had gotten to. Walking down the hallway that lead to the other R and an F door, Rose had found Rayna in Fionna's room. They were giggling in their outfits, complimenting each other. It was a strong distaste on Rose's part. A sour look urging on her face. But she covered up quickly with a smile, stepping into Fionna's room. "Ahh girls, you look so..." Rose looked Rayna up and down then at Fionna, a nod of approval, "Nice" Rose smiled distastefully at the last word before grabbing Fionna and Rayna's hand. "C'mon, we're going now!" Rose said, smiling normally, her features not looking so sour and mean for once. She was actually genuinely beautiful. Fionna smiled shyly, so uncertain of this woman, but whispered an okay. However, Rayna pulled away and stood still, "I'm getting picked up," she said. Rose raised her eye brows in surprise. But she wasn't interested in getting any further information. "Suit yourself," And with that, Rose pulled Fionna out to the car and they drove off to Jake's apartment.

Once they had arrived, Rose saw the open door to the apartment and grinned. She pulled Fionna along like a puppy and they walked in together. People had already started arriving but it was only a handful of people. Rose loves parties, and this one was just the perfect one for something she had planned up her sleeve. Her next plan was to now ditch the shy Fionna in search for Koby. "I've got to find someone...make do with what you got," Rose said to Fionna before leaving her. Rose walked around for barely two minutes before finding Koby in the kitchen making drinks, already looking as if he'd had several himself. She walked up behind him, putting her hands around his waist, moving them up and down his abdominals. She standing behind him, even though he practically paid no attention to her whatsoever. "Hi," He said, a smirk in his voice. He hadn't seen her coming, but he wasn't surprised either. If anything, he expected it. Koby turned around to face her, a drink in his hand offering to her. Rose cocked an eyebrow, her hips connected to his, trying to get this stubborn man on edge around her. But it seemed he was immune to her straight forward sex appeal. She downed the drink quickly then pulled him back into the lounge room, where the music was turned up and several people started dancing as six o'clock rolled around.

"I'm going to go pick up the girl and I'll be back," Koby heard Jake say. All he did was nod.

"I'm going to go pick up the girl and I'll be back," Jake shouted over the music, smiling at Koby as he walked out of the apartment. He got into his car and drove off to the sorority after a last minute phone call to Rayna about the address. Once he arrive, the front door was already open. He knocked however before stepping inside, and Rayna appeared in front of him almost bumping into him. She had opened the door as he pulled in. "Oops, sorry!" Jake laughed, stepping out of her comfort zone. He smiled at her, how she looked so simple, so sophisticated. She would stand out at the party for sure. Smiling, he reached for her hand to guide her to the car, opening the car door for her and letting her inside. He got into the car himself and started it. "You do look really beautiful," Jake said simply, and then they drove off, back to his apartment.

The music could be heard several apartments away, and Jake shook his head. There were to be a lot of complaints tonight. But it didn't bother him too badly. He quickly got out of the car to open Rayna's door for her and let her out. The front door of the apartment was wide open, letting people stand outside and talk and smoke. Inside, it was flesh on flesh, so cramped and so many people. Koby was dancing with Rose. Rose was dragging her hands all over his body, touching him and lowering herself to his groin just to come back up again, probably giving him a good look of her cleavage once again. Jake rolled his eyes, still having a smile on his lips. "I want you to meet my best friend," Jake said into Rayna's ears over the music, nothing like what Koby would have done. He pulled her into the crowd of people before Koby and Rose. "Koby! Koby!" Jake shouted over the music, grabbing their attention. Koby stopped dancing and Rose stopped mid-grind. "This is Rayna, my date! Rayna, this is Koby, my best friend!" Jake shouted over the music, introducing the two. And the faces that came upon their faces was as if they'd seen a ghost.

Rose was really getting on her nerves. At least she hadn't had to deal with her during the week. She watched as Fionna was dragged into the car and pulled off. The door still open, Rayna sat down to put on her shoes. Just as she got up a building seemed to have bumped into her. A building which was her hot date. "Oops, sorry!" Jake laughed, stepping out of her comfort zone. Rayna got into the car, "You do look really beautiful," Jake said simply, and then they drove off, back to his apartment.. When they arrived, the place looked pretty nice. It was packed with people, and as she got inside she realized it was a grind party. Usually she'd be pretty happy but she had a date and she didn't know what was in store. "I want you to meet my best friend," Jake said into Rayna's ears over the music. She had his hand in hers as he dragged her into the crowd. Then she saw Rose. She recognized the backless dress and those magnificent curves. What she saw next was horrid. She saw Rose's dance partner. Koby. Her heart sank a little, yet it just proved she was right, once again. "This is Rayna, my date! Rayna, this is Koby, my best friend!" Jake shouted over the music, introducing the two. But Jake didn't know they had already been introduced before, on a much deeper level. Rayna didn't say anything, she just cling'ed towards Jake. Rayna tried to give a half smile but she couldn't even force it. "Hey wanna dance?" Rayna tried to say over the music. As they began to turn around she heard Koby say to Jake, "I thought you would have raised your standards over the years, rather than settling for some trash." Rayna's jaw dropped as she pulled Jake closer. The music was loud as she could feel him put his hands on her hips.

Fionna's week went by quickly. She had composed three new songs and was already excelling in her classes. As the day of the party drew closer, Fionna became more and more nervous. What if Andrew didn't like her boldness before? What if he just didn't like her at all? Her insecurities seemed overwhelming, but she had found a great friend in Rayna and spoke to her often about her thoughts. Having a friend was a strange new thing for her. Most females either viewed her as competition or just plain weird, but Rayna never thought of her that way at all.

The day of the party had finally arrived and she found she desperately needed Rayna's help in finding a dress to wear. Rayna seemed more than happy to help her and after finding a great dress and fixing her hair just the way she liked it, Rose came in and dragged her away. Fionna gave Rayna a pitiful look saying help me as she and Rose left the house. Rose drove like a bat out of hell and Fionna unclutched her hands from the seat after they got to the house. Rose dragged her inside behind her and promptly left her to find her date.

Fionna, being rather short stood on her tiptoes, searching for Andrew. She couldn't find him and sighed. Maybe he really didn't like her. Maybe he preferred redheads. As she was thinking all these negative thoughts, one of her favorite songs came on. It fit the moment perfectly as her eyes found his across the room and she gave a small wave.

Andrew watched as the people flooded in. He saw people starting to lite up on the lawn and he shuttered. Andrew hated smokers. He noticed Rose getting close with Koby. Typical. But then he needed a double take to understand what was happening. Jake's girl, who he's been talking to everyday, was Koby's girl. Oh boy... Then he saw his angel. He watched her wave as he tried to make his way through the crowd. When he got up to her he noticed her black lace dress. Andrew loved girls who wore lace. It was just so sexy. Andrew smiled as he grabbed her hand and bow. "Could I have this dance, m'lady?" She nodded as they headed around where his friends were dancing. He wasn't about to get "down and dirty" but close and comfortable. He pulled her close as they rocked back and forth. But Andrew had a hard time focusing on Fionna when both Koby and Jake had their hands full of lady. It was almost a grind off, and by the looks of it, Koby was winning. after the next few songs Andrew was in dire need of a drink. "Want a drink?" Andrew offered as he slowly stopped dancing.

Koby saw Jake walk into the apartment, accompanied by what seemed to be left overs. A smirk overwhelmed his face, a tear holding his heart. He turned to face them, Rose immediately a puppy at his side. He put his hand around her waist, claiming her. Jake made introductions and a look of horror spread across Rayna's face as Koby made a smart remark. He didn't feel bad. He felt good. He felt even better when she pulled Jake closer to dance, trying to get him out of her head. Koby was feeling good in such a bad way. He wanted to shout, but at the same time he wanted to laugh like a maniac. He nodded at Jake, oblivious to the tension between his date and best friend, walking off with Rose who wore a matching smirk to Koby. Koby grabbed Rose by the ass, pulling her close to him, dancing. He was aggressive in every move he made, anger pulsing out in short bursts. He was trying so hard to keep it under wraps, a reassuring smile crossing his lips every now and then when his eyes met Rose's or Jakes. But never, did his eyes meet with Rayna.

Koby would dip his head underneath Rose's jaw, kissing aggressively down her neck, his hands wondering over his hips, into the curve of her ass, back up and followed the pattern. He was rough, but Rose didn't seemed to mind, if anything she was encouraging it, arching her back into him, grinding up against him. They moved freely with the music against flesh and flesh of the others. They soon both became thirsty and decided they needed more drinks. Koby was well past being tipsy, and if there were a term behind wasted, he would use it. Koby was well near passing out point, but his anger fueled him. Rose was just as bad as Koby at that stage, always clinging to his side. They were the loudest there at this point, until everybody caught up to their number of drinks. They made their way back to the dance floor, sweating and breathing hard. Koby grabbed Rose's waist hard, pulling her up to his chest, his lips crashing on hers. Rose smiled against this, deepening it, not caring who was looking. Everybody was drunk anyway, it wouldn't matter. They both pulled away laughing and continued dancing.

Jake was quite the opposite to the likes of Koby's aggressiveness and urgent need. Jake was gentle and reserved, letting Rayna take the lead. He had his hands on her hips, moving together fast, but not hectic like the people around them. Everybody was touching, sweat on sweat, flesh on flesh. It was a full room of dancing, sweaty boys and girls. Jake saw Koby score a kiss from Rose and smiled. He was oblivious to the plans behind Koby's intentions. He was happy the boy was having a good time, getting his mind of the girl that was bothering him. He brought his attention upon Rayna, looking at her pretty face and her hair tangled freely around her face. He brought a hand up to move it away from her face and pulled her the tiniest bit closer than felt comfortable, but it felt nice. He ran his hands up her waist, down her arms and landed in her hands, intertwining their fingers. He was looking into her eyes the whole time, losing himself in them. They were so...demanding. It was hard to not look away.

Jake was starting to get a little exhausted from all the dancing and thought they could sit down in the kitchen for a while before they continue dancing. "Lets go sit down," He said, puffing. He grasped her hand tightly, not chancing to lose her in the crowd. He pulled her through to the kitchen, and placed her on a seat. "Want another drink?" Jake offered. Rayna nodded reluctantly. Jake shrugged, pouring her another drink and passing it to her. It wasn't strong. She didn't seem keen on drinking anyway. Jake walked around to the seat beside her and sat down, placing a hand on her knee. "You okay?" He asked, Rayna looked out of place.

Rayna could feel Koby almost punching her in the face. The way he grabbed Rose was... Lustful. It was passionate and hot. She liked Jake but there was something about Koby throwing her off her game. She tried to stay close to Jake and she could feel his eyes on her, but she wasn't up for the big party. This was too much to handle. "Lets go sit down," He said, puffing. Pulling her with his strong grasp, she smiled, he was sweet. "Want another drink?" Jake offered. Rayna nodded reluctantly, she remembered how rowdy she got at the last party and how things ended. She figured being tipsy would help ease her mind away from Koby but being drunk would encourage it. Suddenly she felt a hand on her knee, knocking her out of her thoughts. "You okay?" He asked, so sincere. She shook her head, she couldn't tell him the truth. If Koby really was his best friend, it would make things awkward. "I'm fine... Just not really up to partying.. Could we go somewhere private?" She watched as he processed this information. No. I don't want to sleep with you. She thought. But instead he got up and led her to his room. He had a tv and the bed would have just enough room to snuggle up. Assuming that's all he wanted to do. "I'll be back," Jake said as he left her alone in his room. She walked over to the bed and took out her phone. 1 New message? She clicked it and it was the confirmation for the check of last weeks photo shoot. She smiled, at least I'm not broke! But she kept reading and it said they wanted her for another shoot, with males, on Tuesday. She cringed. Hopefully, fate would make that guy Jake. But reality is it wouldn't be. Then Jake walked back. He had a bag of chips, and a few movies. "I have video games if you're into that, or I brought some movies?" This was exactly what she wanted.

Jake came back into the room to see Rayna on her phone, a smile breaking across her face. "What's got you smiling?" Jake said teasingly. He put in a movie that seemed to be a horror - his favorite genre. It seemed to be Silent Hill. He sat back up on the bed beside Rayna, letting her get into her comfort zone. He leaned against his pillows, his hands down by his side. He was too much of a gentleman to put his arms around her just yet, even considering the amount of alcohol consumed. There was some light falling into the room from the street light that flooded his room. He would grab some chips every now and then, enjoying the movie. He looked at Rayna who seemed constantly distracted; and this slightly bothered him. "Rayna?" Rayna turned her head slowly to face Jake. "Really, what's bothering you. You've been so quiet," Jake frowned, wondering what made her look so sad.

She watched as he popped in the movie. Rayna had never been a fan of horror films. She felt like her life as a child had been one, so horror films, unless they were about kids, never scared her. She laid her head against Jake, he didn't even put his arm around her. She felt self-conscious. Maybe he's not actually interested in me? But she tried to hide it and stay calm. "Rayna?" Rayna turned her head slowly to face Jake. "Really, what's bothering you. You've been so quiet," Jake frowned. Nice job. This is why you'll never be an actress. Rayna looked down at her flat stomach. Maybe he thinks I'm anorexic.. She sighed trying to control her breathing. "Just not into horror films, I guess...." Jake gave her a sly smile, "You scared?" but Rayna didn't smile back. Then she heard a thump on the door. She threw her arm over Jake. "Probably just some party guests getting frisky" He reassured her. But Rayna wasn't convinced. "Go check?" She let him get up as he peaked through the door. It was Koby making out with Rose in the hallway as they made their way into one of spare rooms. Koby even took the time to put the ribbon on the door. "Like I said, just some party guests." As he walked back his green ribbon fell out of his pocket. "What's that?" Rayna asked, staring at the lime green object.

"What' that?" Rayna was so innocent as she said this. Jake's eyes widened as his ribbon fell out of his pocket behind him. "Shit," He cursed. He picked it up, shoving it back in his pocket. "It's nothing, Rayna," He came back over to the bed, lying next to her, still not touching her. Their arms perhaps slightly touching, he couldn't tell from the embarrassment that overwhelmed him. "No, what is it?" Rayna pressed, moving away, something coating her voice. Was it regret? Jake sighed heavily, sitting up. "It's just a green ribbon that I gave to the boys incase things got hot and heavy," Rayna was slowly moving away at this point, "No, Rayna I wasn't planning on doing anything, I swear. I've barely touched you all night for the exception of dancing," Jake was sincere, telling the truth and wasn't moving from where he sat. He was sure she wouldn't leave his side. He wasn't the type of guy to sleep with girls on the first date anyway. "Rayna, I'm not like that..." He said, letting it sink in. "Do you want to play video games instead?" He thought maybe doing something with his hands instead of nothing would convince her.

"No, what is it?" Rayna pressed, moving away a little. It couldn't have just been some useless piece of fabric he was keeping for later. Jake sighed heavily, sitting up. "It's just a green ribbon that I gave to the boys incase things got hot and heavy," She moved back a bit further. Was this his idea? Was he expecting to get "hot and heavy"? Though it was a pretty genius idea, a discrete "do not disturb" sign if you will. "No, Rayna I wasn't planning on doing anything, I swear. I've barely touched you all night for the exception of dancing," Jake was sincere, she knew that but she still felt the need for distance. "Rayna, I'm not like that... Do you want to play video games instead?" Rayna would rather just cuddle until the morning came, but she knew that would just be giving in to what he wanted. "Sure.. but I've never played video games before..." She blushed. The only type of video game she had ever played was pac man and super mario bros at the arcade when she was little. Back when her mother was alive, her parents would often bring her to the game center around the corner. Always getting either cotton candy or ice cream on the way home. She saw Jake's look of shock. He was probably thinking she was joking. "And do you have any sweats or something I could borrow? This skirt is getting kind of irritating..." She wasn't about to strip in front of him, but her skirt was really constricting. Same with her burgundy blouse. Looking good was hard, and uncomfortable.

'And do you have any sweats or something I could borrow? This skirt is getting kind of irritating..." Jake tried recovering from the shock of Rayna never having played video games before. He shook his head and started towards his draws of clothes. "These might be a tad big for you..." He said, holding up the sweat pants against Rayna's hips, brushing her body gently. Rayna was looking at him with those eyes again, the ones that say how uncertain she is of men. "Hold on, I'll see if there's any smaller ones," Jake put them back and found some grey sweats, the smallest he could find. It was from when he was younger. He held the pants once again at her hips and her hands found his, receiving the pants from him. "This'll do fine," Rayna said. Jake nodded. They were standing so close, and it was so quiet and peaceful besides the noises either side of the room. Jake was starting to lean in, mesmerized by those eyes. But he tore himself away. "There's a room at the end of the hall, be careful!" He said as she left the room.

He placed his hands on her hips, "measuring" the sweats to her size. He finally found some small enough that she wouldn't be low riding. Then she could feel him lean in, but thankfully he stopped himself. Self control was so hot. "There's a room at the end of the hall, be careful!" He said as she left the room. She walked down the hall as she saw a couple making out on the stairs. Then the lime green caught her eye. I wonder.. She kept walking as she reached the door to the bathroom. With the clothes in hand, the door began to open. There was Koby. He was madly drunk, she could smell the intense alcohol. She was only tipsy, and would remember this night tomorrow. Hopefully. Koby began to laugh excessively, leaving Rayna still standing waiting for him to move. "Oh looky here... Rayna needs to use the bathroom? Is it that time of the month?" She had to hold herself back. She could have slapped him right there. He's a drunk douche bag. Cut him some slack. But "slack" would be the last thing he needed. "Could you just move?" Her annoying showing through. He stopped laughing as he leaned close to her. "You always want to push me away, huh?" But he was spot on. She tried to lightly move him but he was a lot stronger than she was, even while intoxicated. "You're hotter when I'm drunk" He smiled. The creepy smile you imagine on pedophiles. "Koby, please move.." She tried to move him again but he just flailed his arms at her. "You're so pushy. Just like all women. Except real women aren't anorexic." That was it. She couldn't help but slap him this time. Knocking him to his senses he stumbled off back to his room. She ignored him as she went into the bathroom to change. Crying a little, inside and out.

Koby's face reddened in anger but also out of satisfaction. He got laid and got something out of Rayna. He finally pissed her off enough. That was the first time he had felt her skin in a week. It may have hurt, but it was something. Koby was drunk, wasted and out of his mind. Stumbling back out of his room, seeing that Rose was asleep, he smirked. He wobbled down the hall way, breathing quite heavily. "Rayna," He half yelled as he neared the bathroom. The bass was half rattling the house. Someone had turned the music up again. He wandered around the corner. The bathroom was small, only containing a bath and a shower. The toilet was through another door. He walked through the bathroom door, leaning up against the wall, bashing it with his body. "Rayna...that was rude," He mumbled loudly. His voice was slurred and coarse. Did he smoke? He found Rayna sitting on the bathroom floor. "Piss off Koby!" Rayna shouted, sobbing. Koby smirked. "What's a pretty face like your's crying on the bathroom floor for?" Koby stumbled forward, tripping on his own feet but caught himself against the wall. His eyes were glassy and red. Wait, did he smoke weed? Koby slouched down the wall opposite of Rayna, staring at her with angry eyes but too drunk to do anything about it. "You hurt me Rayna," Koby said, his words only just making sense, slurring. He was an honest drunk, sadly, but true. "An-and" -burp- "And I liked you, a lot. Actually," Koby looked around, as if he was searching for something, but it was clearly sarcasm. "I still like you, but you know what, Rayna? You're...you're a bitch!" Koby burst out laughing, his eyes swelling slightly. "You don't get it do you?" Koby was talking with his hands, his elbows on his knees. "I actually care, Rayna...and now..now you're with my best friend!" Koby laughed, so cold. He stopped there, tears rolling over his face. Once again, it was just silent anger. He had never cried in front of a girl before, yet alone when he was drunk. But he was a mess, so angry and stubborn. He hated her, he liked her. He was confused. He sat there, starring at her, shaking her head.

She slid down the wall until she was sitting on the floor, still in her skirt. She was sobbing and crying. Pull yourself together.. But no pep talk would make this better. "Rayna," She heard Koby coming back. She tried to reach to close the door but was too late. He walked through the bathroom door, leaning up against the wall, bashing it with his body. "Rayna...that was rude," He mumbled loudly. She didn't want to talk anymore. She just wanted to go home. "Piss off Koby!" Rayna shouted, sobbing. Koby smirked. "What's a pretty face like your's crying on the bathroom floor for?" Again, this would have felt sincere besides the fact everything he said was influenced by all the alcohol he had consumed. She heard him stumbling closer. "You hurt me Rayna, An-and" -burp- "And I liked you, a lot. Actually," She began to sniffle as she looked up to him. "I still like you, but you know what, Rayna? You're...you're a bitch!" Koby burst out laughing, making her furious. She punched his arm, not with full power but enough for him to feel it. "You don't get it do you? I actually care, Rayna...and now..now you're with my best friend!" Koby laughed, so cold. Now they were both a mess. Both still crying and sitting on the bathroom floor. "I'm sorry..." She apologized. Not sure if she was sorry for letting him get close, being with his best friend or even moving out here for university. "Now... Could you go?" She sniffled, "I need to change.." She watched as he got up slowly, "Yes you do.." He walked off, hopefully this time for good. But she closed the door and locked it, letting out the rest of her sobs. Rayna quickly switched into the sweats, which were still way too big for her and one of his t-shirts. Walking back to Jake's room she wrapped her arms around herself. "I'm not anorexic.." Mumbling to herself.

She opened the door to Jake's room and saw he was wearing some sweats too, without his shirt on. "Sorry.. It's kind of hot in here.." He half smiled. Rose couldn't smile. She had just been slapped across the face with words. She had also forgotten to wipe off the running make up from her break down. Jake, noticing the black stains on her face, ran to her side, "What happened? I knew everything wasn't okay, please, you can trust me." But Rayna was done playing the "trust" game, especially when someone she trusted just ripped her apart. "Just some drunk mocking me. I guess I'm kind of fragile.."

Jake rubbed her arm in comfort, not daring to get any closer. She was so...delicate. Anything could harm her. "Come," Jake tugged on her hand, guiding her to in front of the television. "I'm going to teach you to play Call of Duty..." A grin was present in his tone. He sat her down in front of the television, handing her the controller. She sat cross legged in front of the tv, Jake sitting behind her so she was inbetween his legs. He wrapped his arms around her, placing his hands on top of hers. "Hope you don't mind," He whispered in her ear, reminding her of Koby. They were instantly connected to an online match. His fingers covering hers lightly. "Alright, they'll be on the opposite side of the map," He said quietly to her, moving her thumbs so they were walking forward. Jake let go of her hands after he explained the controls, letting her move around for a little bit. He complained of her camping in a funny tone, dying first in the match. Jake laughed as Rayna frowned, stating so simply that "Oh, he killed me." He kept his hands wrapped around her waist as she played the game, taking turns every so often. It was then going on midnight, and Jake's back was sore from leaning over her. He stretched his back, "Want to try to watch another movie?" He asked, standing up. Ranya shrugged, looking up at him from the floor. "Pick a movie, I'll be back,"

Jake went and got some more snacks and another drink for them. He didn't know what movie Rayna chose, letting it surprise him. He sat up on the bed, leaning on his side, his body propped up on his elbow, his hand holding his head up. He patted the spot in front of him for Rayna to join him. His eyes were red, probably from playing the game so close to the tv, but it didn't seem to bother him.

They sat down, with Jake so close. Video games were just a way for people to get anger out without actual harm. Not a bad idea. After Jake explained the controls, she got pretty good, for a girl that is. With his arms on her hips, she didn't mind being this close. It was becoming clear his intentions weren't for a one night stand. But she was reminded of Koby. Unlike Jake, Koby had a firm grip on her. He was controlling and strong. The way he knew what he was doing scared and excited her. They kept playing until around midnight, she glanced at Jake stretching behind her. "Want to try to watch another movie?" He asked, standing up. Ranya shrugged, looking up at him from the floor. "Pick a movie, I'll be back," She watched him leave as she crawled over to where all the dvds were. There were multiple horror films, a few classics and some comedies. She loved comedies. But she had a feeling she would fall asleep, so she chose Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. She had never seen it but she was reading the back of the case, and it sounded alright. The sounds of Jake coming and jumping onto the bed brought a little smile on her face. She looked back as he patted the spot next to her. Walking to the bed she snuggled in close. As the previews started they both didn't move to get the remote and fast forward. As they watched the movie she sipped some more beer and ate a bit of chips he had brought up. But she was getting really hot, and sweating was gross. She slipped out from his arm and began to slide the baggy sweats off. She was wearing some red booty shorts as she snuck back into the bed. "Sorry, I was just overheating" Rayna snuggled up to him, just wearing her underwear, bra and the shirt he lent her.

Jake instantly felt the warmth that Rayna exerted. He brought both his arms around her, holding her close. But she soon slipped out of Jakes arms, pulling down he baggy sweats. Jake's eyes widened, "Sorry, I was just overheating," Jake resisted the urge to groan. She was hot. She came back into his arms, more skin touching than what was intended. His chest was wide, muscly and offered comfort for Rayna's head. His hands trailed through her hair, down her neck and nestled into her waist. His other hand was supporting her back, his thumb tracing circles. His head rested on top of hers, the movie finally beginning. He sat up a little but Rayna could still rest her head on his chest.

The movie must have been funny, scoring a few giggles from Rayna, but Jake wouldn't know. He was more concerned about the almost-naked girl he held in his arms. She was beautiful, puffy eyes and all. She looked so...innocent. Her tough guard was done. She was vulnerable, just as much as he was. He tried to look back up at the tv screen, but her smile was making it so difficult. He pressed his lips to the top of her head, in comfort, reassurance and a slight hint that maybe the booze was sinking in. He was reluctant to reach for his drink to take a sip, even more so reluctant to shimmy back down into a comfortable position. Everytime Jake moved, Rayna would move with him, flesh on flesh. But not like outside the room. This flesh on flesh was...was something different. Jake felt the spark that ignited it. The electricity that flowed through his veins with every touch that was felt. He was smiling though, his perfect teeth showing. He turned Rayna's head to face him, distracting her from the movie. He looked at her eyes, trying to communicate with his own, hoping that what he was about to do was okay with her. He started to lean in, his breathing quiet. He planted a small, soft kiss on hers, only leaving her lips too soon to be satisfied. But it was something, and it was a start. He pulled back completely and leaned back into his previous position, holding her again, letting her continue with the movie.

The movie was on, but she didn't care. Being so close to someone was scary. She was concentrating on regulating her heart beat, so it wouldn't beat out of her chest. Every time she would fidget, he moved with her. Then she felt his hand on her face, moving to face him. She stared into his eyes, almost asking if it was okay. He started to lean in as he planted a small soft kiss on her lips. It was sweet, without any sexual tension. Obviously she wanted more, but that was all she needed. Yet, there didn't seem to be a passion, at least not the same kind of passion she had with Koby. Why do I always compare with Koby? She snuggled closer to Jake, not that she could get much closer, as she closed her eyes. She was very sleepy and was comfortable enough to just let her self drift into dreams.

Jake was soon fixated on the tv, laughing along with Rayna before she became quiet. He peered down at her, seeing her eyes were fluttering shut, a yawn escaping her lips. She was soon asleep in his arms in a little ball. Jake sighed, moving slowly and softly from under her to turn the tv off, putting the chip bowl and drinks on top of his drawers before turning the light off. He turned the over head fan on high and crawled underneath the blankets, lifting Rayna up and over the bed sheets. Her back was to him, allowing him to place his arm over and around her, guarding her protectively from anything. He liked the feel of her breathing underneath his arms, the warmth that touched him. His bare chest was up against her back, her bare legs against his. He planted another kiss on top of her head again, propping himself up on his shoulder, admiring her as she fell into a deep sleep.

Jake ran his free hand over her body - from her shoulder, to her waist, down her thigh and back up to her shoulder. He kissed her neck every now and then until his eyes started to get heavy. He layed back down, rolling over so his back faced her, falling asleep.

Rayna woke up in a haze. She remembered being with Jake and as she woke up she was glad he was still by her side. But she looked at the mirror across the room, make up smudging along her face. She discretely got out of bed and found her purse, which she had put an emergency make up kit. Taking the bag she went down the hall to the bathroom. After fixing her face and putting on her shiny gloss she walked back to Jake's room. But just as she reached the door she heard another door opening. She turned her head to see the room with the green ribbon opening, and Koby stepped out. Trying not to react she immediately rushed back in the bed with Jake. She slipped back under his arm, as she had been when she woke up. Then she felt him wake up. She could feel his eyes open. She rolled over, "Good morning" She smiled, leaning over to kiss his cheek. She then hopped out of bed and put the baggy seats back on. "I got to take a shower, alright? But help yourself to whatever food you can find in the kitchen." Nodding, Rayna walked down the stairs to the kitchen table, covered in plastic cups. As Rayna continued to the kitchen she saw Koby, making himself a coffee, looking very hung over. She laughed, "Party too hard?" No reaction. She was eager to make him crack as he had made her. "It feels like I haven't seen you in forever... Get hit by a truck? Seems your face is more messed up than I remember." He turned to face her, leaning on the counter, unimpressed. "So you're just going to stay silent? With that big mouth of yours it must take super glue to shut up." He rolled his eyes. You can do better than this Rayna. Then she put a hand on her hip, "Nice green ribbon, but I don't think it counts if you were playing with yourself." Then she heard the toilet flush. Suddenly the curvy blond came from the bathroom. Rose.

Koby rolled over to find Rose still sleeping behind him. He grinned selfishly, remembering the acts last night. His body was aching from the dancing, his head pounding from the alcohol consumed. He slung an arm over Rose's curves, awaking her lightly. She mumbled something incoherent but rolled out of bed and stood up. Make up was messed all over her face, dark rings under her eyes but a foolish grin smacked across her face. Koby tried to smile back, but his head hurt. Rose wiggled her fingers at his as she exited the room to the bathroom. Koby followed after her, leaving the room to go downstairs to make a coffee.

The smell of coffee instantly aroused his sense, awakening him the slightest. He breathed in heavily, his head pounding everytime his heart pumped blood. He heard footsteps from behind him, then a sudden burst of insults. "...counts if you were playing with yourself," and that was all he made out. He remained silent, ignoring the white noise that filled the sound of the room. He turned to the source of the noise. Ah, it was Rayna. His face was emotionless, his eyes cold. "And I wouldn't be surprised if a slut such as yourself slept with my best friend," He said cooly before moving to the chairs beside the dining room table. The house was trashed, a mess everywhere. Koby's eyes hurt. They were glassy and red. But everywhere he looked, was alcohol, cigarettes and rubbish from God knows what. Koby closed his eyes for a moment before opening them again, his eyes on Rayna. She was even more beautiful than he remembered, his heart instantly melting. "Ugh, your face..." Koby shielded his eyes, looking away, "It really hurts to look. Your face is just so gross," Koby lowered his eyes to the table, resisting to smirk. "But you're too up yourself to notice," Koby grunted as a flash of pain went through his head. But then a door was opened and out walked a delicious slice of Rose.

Koby smiled, moving his legs out so she could sit down in his lap. She sauntered over, her hips waving from side to side naturally. She planted a kiss on top of Koby's forehead neatly before sitting down in his laptop. He kissed her neck softly, much more carefully than he did the night before. She was whispering things into this ear, things about last night and how they should do that again. Koby stifled a laugh, letting his free hand sit on her upper thigh. Rose turned her cold eyes toward Rayna, "Oh, you're still here?" She asked, raising her eye brows in surprise. "Who let you stay here? Who'd you sleep with?" Rose's smirk matched Kobys. They were two peas in a pod. Two very very horrible people. But they were disgustingly happy. Koby could see the anger flush Rayna's face. This he enjoyed. "Rayna, baby, don't you have a photo shoot? Shouldn't you rush off and leave Jake?" Rose giggled foolishly. She had obviously been let in on the know of the previous events. She was on Koby's side, obviously. Koby's eyes turned dark and cold, regrets instantly filling his hearts.

The way he held Rose just wasn't the same way he held Rayna. The way she fit into his arms was different to Rayna. It was forced and not natural. It was too for show. He knew it would be perfect with Rayna, but Rose was who he was with now. Even if it was a one night stand. He knew that he was stuck with one of them.

Rayna watched Rose walk in the room as Rose gave him a kiss on the head. In her mind, she had already killed Rose 3 times. He kissed her neck softly as Rose rolled her eyes. She was just trying to hide the fact that she was insanely jealous. Rose turned her cold eyes toward Rayna, "Oh, you're still here?" Immediately sending Rayna to cross her arms. "Who let you stay here? Who'd you sleep with?" Both of them now with big grins on their faces. I can't take on a tag team. Rayna didn't want to lie and have a big web made, but she didn't him to think she was still interested. "Well coming from someone who doesn't even live here, I say it's none of your business." Rayna was beginning to break. The pressure, the insults, the heart break was just too much. But she knew she had to be strong. "Rayna, baby, don't you have a photo shoot? Shouldn't you rush off and leave Jake?" Rose giggled foolishly. She had obviously been let in on the know of the previous events. That was it. Without a word, Rayna walked off towards Jake's room. She wasn't going to cry, and didn't want to cry.

As she reached the hall, Jake was just coming out of the bathroom. He had a towel wrapped around his waist and was heading toward her with a big smile. As he came up to her she grabbed his arm, "Jake, I have a lot of problems. I don't really want to talk about them, but I'm just giving you a heads up. If you want to stop seeing me, I understand..." But Jake lifted her chin and kissed her, to shut her up of course. "What brought this on sweet lips?" Rayna blushed at the compliment, but still no smile. "Well, your friend...I think his name is... Koby? Well he said you think I'm too temperamental and just want to sleep with me...." Then Jake's smile disappeared too. He stormed downstairs and into the kitchen where Koby and Rose were still cuddled up.

Koby let his words flow like venom, striking Rayna where it hurt the most. He smirked, pleased with himself and the damaged he caused. He continued to hold Rose, but only loosely. His hands didn't cup her tightly, not was it with any feeling. It was out of pure selfishness that he held her at that moment, simply because he didn't want to be alone. But his eyes darted straight to Rayna as she simply moved her hands from her chest and walked out of the kitchen towards the stairs, and with that, Koby was left by himself with Rose. Rose laughed, so cold "Finally! I thought she'd never leave!" She sighed happily, snuggling her head into Koby's neck. Koby pulled away, frowning, shoving her off his lap, frowning. "Yeah, okay, leave me alone," He rolled his eyes, standing up to grab fresh coffee. Rose shrugged, not being bothered by his sudden change of mood.

Jake walked into the kitchen, a look of disgust engulfed his perfect features. Koby raised an eyebrow as he turned to face the person who had rushed into the kitchen. "Koby?" Jake almost practically growled, walking towards Koby. "We need to talk...now," Koby's face returned back to a simple composure, coffee in hand, they walked into the lounge room, leaving Rose in the kitchen. Jake put his hands on his hips, a glare crossing his face. "What did you say to Rayna?" Koby's eyes flashed open in surprise. "What did I say to...what's her name again?" Koby's face turned into a smirk. Jake sighed, bringing his hands to his forehead, rubbing his temples. "Okay, Koby, whatever you said to her, cut it out. She's the only girl I've liked in a while. You know that. Don't ruin it," Koby rolled his eyes, "Man, you should have seen the insults she said, far out.." His head was pounding harder than before, due to the amount of stress before him. "Alright, I'll stop," he said, giving in. His head hurt too much. He looked at Jake before turning around to walk into the kitchen back to Rose. Jake followed after him, but walked straight past and up the stairs back to Rayna.

"Okay, he should stop now," A smile crossed his face, trying to cheer her up.

Rayna leaned against the wall, smiling idiotically at what she had done. What if she ruined their friendship? Well Koby would kind of deserve it. Rayna then heard the footsteps coming up the stairs again, and put back on her blank face. "Okay, he should stop now," A smile crossed his face, making her lighten up as well. She then grabbed his arm, pulling herself close to him and looking up at his blonde hair. "Could we go out for breakfast? Even just to MacDonalds?" She blinked hysterically, trying to pull off the pouty lip as well. But he caved in so easily. "Sure, babe." Making her giggle. She liked being called babe, sweet lips and other cute nicknames. They walked down the stairs and to the door. As she sat down to put on her shoes Jake yelled across the house, "We're going out, see you later!" Then they left, off to eat some greasy breakfast from some desperate teenagers who happened to work at the food establishment. They walked in and it was packed. She could hardly see the counter. "It's not that bad.." Jake tried to stay positive but Rayna knew this would not work. "I know a place not to far from here... Want to go on a adventure?" Grabbing her hand they went back into Jake's car, this time, Rayna was driving. She knew where she was going. She was going to Al's diner, that's where she ate 99% of the time when she was homeless. The food was hot, cheap and didn't completely suck. Plus everyone there knew her and it was a safe haven. Hopefully he would like it too.

Jake's eyes were wide when he noted the old fashioned set up with the cute decorations placed upon the walls. It was nice, homey and welcoming. They walked inside, hand in hand, fingers intertwined. Jakes thumb was rubbing the back of Rayna's hand. They walked in and were greeted by a couple of friendly faces behind the counter and not so friendly faces from the customers that were already seated. "Rayna, darling!" Came a rich, feminine booming voice. Out came a small plump lady, a bit on the obese side but nonetheless friendly looking. Rayna's face lit up at the familiarity of the lady. "Hey Kelly, we need some food, desperately," Rayna said, smiling. Kelly was easily eyeing off the piece of man hanging off her shoulder. "But we want something different this time," A smile came across her face. "Can we have a menu?" Kelly nodded, remaining silent, she handed her a menu.

Rayna immediately pointed at the pancakes on the menu. Jake smiled, chuckling quietly, "Guess you want pancakes?" Rayna nodded, so Jake nodded as well. Kelly took back the menu, nodding and headed out to the back preparing the the meal for two. "And two coffee's as well!" Rayna shouted. She dragged him to her favorite part of the small diner that was situated at the back, near the window that faced the road. They sat down side-by-side, making small talk until their food arrived.

Out came the plump lady again with the pancakes on one plate and two cups of coffee on another. She placed them down carefully, and walked away without a word. Jake smiled, breathing in the delicious smelling food. It was only on one plate however, it didn't bother him. The food was smothered in syrup and butter. He hadn't realized how hungry he really was. "Dig in." Rayna and Jake said together, sharing the meal. Their hands would touch every so often, a spark occurring every so often, making Jake's urge for Rayna strong.

After they completed their meal, Jake leaned back and placing his arm around Rayna's shoulder, Rayna drinking in the warm coffee. "So, what did Koby say to you?" Jake raised an eyebrow, quite similar to how Koby would have done it.

Rayna glanced at the cars passing by as they ate th pancakes, which were covered in whip cream. Joel, Al's son, knew how much she loved whip cream. She smiled as she looked at Jake eating the pancakes. Every so often their hands would touch and she would have a light pink cover her cheeks. When they finished the meal, they still sipped on their coffee, Jake looked at her. "So, what did Koby say to you?" Making Rayna look down. She didn't want to lie and it end up biting her in the butt, "Well he said my face was so ugly he couldn't look at me... and called me a slut... I know it's not much but it really just hurt." She looked down to her lap as she felt him put his hand over hers. "I don't know why'd he say that, but I told him to back off. Maybe you guys just need to know each other better." Rayna cringed over thinking about being near him again. Especially if Jake meant some alone time. "What about a double date? Then I could be with you if you feel uncomfortable?" Rayna loved how considerate Jake was. She kissed his cheek in approval. I guess it's a date. A double date.

The drive home felt a lot longer than it should have. Rayna had put on the radio and blasted the music, to avoid talking. This morning was big, ever since she went into university her whole life had changed. All the classes were insane and now she had to miss class this week for a photo shoot. C'est la vie. After telling Jake where to turn they arrived at her palace. "Last night was really fun," She said sincerely. It really had been the most fun she'd had at a party since forever. Jake leaned closer, "I had fun too" They both felt the overwhelming urge to be closer. Then Rayna went in for the kill. She didn't just kiss him, it was almost a "This is the last time I'll see you, so let's make it count" kiss. She put her hand in his hair and he pulled her closer with his hand on her hip. When they finally cooled down she gave him one last peck on his cheek. "Call me tomorrow?" She winked as she headed inside. Probably going to nap, because she didn't get much sleep and knew she had a ton of classes tomorrow.

"Call me tomorrow?" Jake nodded, pulling Rayna in for a quick hug before he let her go. He didn't know when he'd see her again, it was just another week worth of waiting again before the weekend, where he planned their double date. He walked back to his car, hands in the back pocket of his jeans. Once he got in the car, he drove slowly back home to his apartment, where he would be ready to rip Koby's throat out if needs be. He would stomp his voice box.

Once Jake arrived home, Koby was nowhere to be seen. What day was it? Sunday? Koby was probably wondering back home preparing for his week. But Jake still found Rose sitting in the kitchen, twirling her fingers around the top of the coffee cup. She turned her head towards him as he entered the kitchen, "Ah, Jake," Jake nodded in Rose's direction, planning to walk straight past her to his room, "Koby said he'll stop by later tonight to chill out," She said to his back. Jake stopped walking and turned around. Rose had stood up. She was wearing a very low cut black singlet and short denim shorts. It enhanced the sexy curves of her body, more than the dress she wore the night before did. Jake rolled his eyes mentally, knowing exactly what her intentions were. "Where's your little friend?" Her voice sounded like velvet, and she sauntered towards him slowly, her hips swaying from side to side. He stood still, back straight and arms across his chest. "I dropped her back at her home," He replied simply, just a simple statement. "The sorority?" Rose corrected, raising an eyebrow. She was just in front of Jake at that point, practically breathing on him like she had to seduce Koby to be her date for the partner. But Jake would not be wavered. He was too loyal.

"What do you want Rose?" Jake said coldly as she trailed a hand up and down his forearm. "I think you know, Jake," She practically purred. She was a person driven by deceit and lust. Her body was built for what she wanted. But what she wanted she could not get from Jake. This time, Jake rolled his eyes physically, and this offended Rose. "Don't I appeal to you? Don't you want me?" Rose put her fingers in the hoops of her denim shorts, slightly pulling them down. Jake just shook his head, "You're perfect for Koby, you see. Now, go home. " Jake put his arms back on his sides and turned to go back to his room. "There's a lot of things you don't know Jake!" Rose called out from behind him. But he didn't care, she was a liar anyway.
Rose then left the house to walk back to the sorority.

Rayna had another long week. It seems her class projects were sneaking up on her and she was stressing. She had a decent photo shoot with Jiovani and Jake even said he was slightly jealous. Which made her smile, she liked how much he cared. They had called each other again every night and even went out for lunch Tuesday. On Wednesday, she had an adventure. She found out there was a way onto the roof of the complex from her balcony. She was like a spider monkey when she climbed up there to watch the sun set. It was beautiful. She loved the wind up there, completely free and the open air. That was where she got so much inspiration for her sketch book.

Finally it was Thursday. She had just gotten home from uni when she had to figure out what to wear. Thankfully she had gotten a new outfit from the latest photo shoot she did. She slid into her new striped dress and pink raincoat and twirled around in front of her mirror. She even took the time to curl her hair. Grabbing her favorite lip gloss, she chucked it into her purse. She knew Jake would be here any second and she kept walking past the mirror to make sure she didn't look like a fool. Even though she was a model, she was still very self conscious.

Jake's week was slower than usual. Slower than the week before had been when he was so anxiously waiting to pick up Rayna for their party. The lectures were long and lost of purpose, even more so since he chose to sit away from Koby for once. He decided he was more or less still angry at his friend for his treatment of his new girlfriend. But he wouldn't hold it against him forever.

His shower had been long and full of thought; some thoughts he never considered. He shaved his face and brushed his teeth and got changed. He settled on wearing a black collared shirt and tie with blue denim jeans and his converse. His blond hair wasn't aiming on co-operating with him, so he left it as it would usually sit and put on his favorite cologne, grabbed his keys and headed towards his front door where he was met by Andrew. "Yep, going out now," Jake nodded, answering the silence that Andrew gave him through a frown. Jake got in the car and started it up and headed towards the sorority. He was smiling as he drove up to the drive way, and tried to be quiet as he got out of the car. He closed his door quietly and was light on his feet as he ascended the stairs to the front door. He was hoping that the front door was unlocked so he could sneak in and surprise Rayna. In his favor, the door was unlocked.

Much like the stance of a burglar, Jake snuck up the stairs, noting the two doors that had the letter R on them. His eyes grew wide, knowing very well one of those doors could lead to Rose's room, and that was an event he was keen on missing out on. Instead, he slowly pushed on the door that was slightly open and found a very stressed girl walking past her mirror back and forth. Jake's face lit up as he jogged in, catching Rayna by surprise. He lifted her up and marveled at her outfit. "Beautiful," He said in awe, leaving little kisses on her cheek, on her neck and lastly on her lips. He still had a smile on his face as he put her feet back on the ground. "Lets go before Koby comes to pick up Rose," Jake whispered into her ear, dragging her forward to leave. She quickly grabbed her purse and they headed down stairs to the car.

The car ride was filled with a comfortable silence as they headed towards a gold class cinema further in the city area. They held hands the whole ride with music quietly playing filling the car. Once they arrived, Jake quickly got out of the car to open Rayna's door. A smile lit up her face in his gentleman discourse. He helped her out, holding her hand and waist before closing the car door and heading towards the entrance. Once they made it inside, they decided to have some dinner after seeing the movie. They stood on the escalators that took them upstairs to the cinema, and started viewing which movies to see, and started waiting on Rose and Koby to arrive.

Koby's week went reasonably fast. Surprisingly, Jake had contacted him not to come over after he had dropped Rayna off at home, and told him about the double date they were to have on Thursday night. So not only was Koby frustrated at his friend, but even more peeved they assumed he was now dating Rose. His week was already stressful enough, but the sounds of the double date seemed to make everything worse. His classes moved through the unit way too fast for his liking, getting left behind every time he blinked. As much as he enjoyed it, he found that it probably wasn't going to be worth it in the end. He usually sat next to Jake, but this time, Jake had sat away from him. Koby wasn't bothered by this, knowing that Jake would come around sooner or later and everything would be normal again. But on Thursday morning, Jake told him they were to pick up the girls separately. Koby reluctantly agreed, not really keen on the drive with Rose alone, but what must be done, must be done.

Koby waited half an hour after Jake had texted him saying he's now picking up Rayna, so Koby took the time to find something suitable to wear. He had no clue where the place he was going to was, or what attire was required, but he settled on some dark jeans that he had worn to the sorority during the storm, and a white t-shirt underneath a black formal jacket, and black formal shoes. Semi-formal Koby assumed. He didn't bother with his hair, running his hands through it as he thought about it and walked out to his car to pick up Rose. When he got in the car, his phone vibrated, receiving a message from Jake saying they're going to the gold class cinema in the city. Koby rolled his eyes, how cliche, he thought.

When Koby arrived at the sorority, Rose was already standing outside, wearing a skin tight white dress. She definitely looked good, with her hair out and moving slightly with the wind. Koby didn't bother stepping out of the car to let her in, but beeped the horn instead and she climbed in herself after checking the front door was locked. They drove in dead silence, Rose trying to place her hand on Koby's thigh every so often. But he kept brushing her away. He was clearly in a foul mood and not to be messed with, but Rose was more determined than that. When they parked outside the huge shopping centre, Rose leaned over the middle of the car and planted a kiss on Koby's lips, "Lighten up, sweetheart," She purred, tracing her hand down his chest and then hopped out of the car. This didn't change Koby's mood, but it motivated him to hurt Rayna again.

They made their way upstairs and soon found Jake and Rose standing in each other's arms, seeming to discuss movie options and dinner options. Koby clutched onto Rose's hand "May as well make it look good," He muttered more to himself than to Rose, who didn't really seem to notice. They approached the couple before them, forced smiles across their faces. "Jake, Rayna." Koby greeted them through gritted teeth. Koby was speechless by the beauty his best friend held, and how downright betrayed he felt by her. His hurt was covered by revenge and hurt to be caused. "What movie have we settled on?" He asked, trying hard not to meet Rayna's eyes. "Breaking Dawn part two," Jake replied, clearly trying not to groan. Rose squealed at Koby's side. "Girls choice," Koby shrugged. They then all lined up for their tickets.

What a gentleman She sighed. He was perfect for her. Always thinking of her first. "How about breaking dawn part two?" She suggested, with a guilty grin. She hadn't seen it yet and was dying to see it. She was open to to hers but if Jake said yes she wouldn't fight about it. He reluctantly agreed as she slid her hand into his. Moving the hair from her face she saw Koby and Rose coming up from the escalators. Eeew. She clutched Jake's hand tighter as they came closer. "Jake, Rayna." Koby greeted them through gritted teeth. Rayna gave a courtesy smile as they headed to the lines for tickets.

As they entered the cinema, she was still holding onto Jake for dear life. She knew if she showed any doubt in their relationship she might just cuddle up to Koby. and that was not an option. They all sat down with Rayna and Koby in the middle. Strategically planned by Jake so they could "get along". Jake leaned over and kissed her as they sat down, "Want any snacks?" She rubbed his fore arm, "Maybe just a cherry slurpee?" He nodded and walked off. Then Rayna looked over at Koby and Rose. Immediately Koby placed his hand on Rose's thigh. She cringed and put her hands on her lap. Trying not to stare, and show the jealousy in her eyes.

Koby was content on not looking at Rayna in the eyes, especially where it was almost dark, where anything could happen and nobody would see, unless they were looking really hard. He placed his hand on Rose's thigh for comfort, and to remind him that she's now not his. But he did speak to her, once again through gritted teeth, "Is he that important to you, Rayna?" He whispered once Jake left to fetch her a drink. "Because if he is, and you screw him over, remember, he's my best friend," Koby placed his arm on the arm rest between them, their forearms touching, "And you won't come back to him ever again," Koby didn't mean it as a threat, but more of a warning and a slight insult. "You're not good enough for him, and you know it," His comments were poisonous, flying out like darts in search for Rayna's reaction. But she didn't move, nor did she reply. She kept her calm. "I'll give you credit for that though," Koby brought up, "You can definitely throw a hit," Koby laughed genuinely, turning his head to look at her. That was when it hit him.

He fell silent, lost again in the innocence of her eyes. He saw hatred and regret, probably hurt too but more ignorance in the current situation. He knew he'd lost her this time. Lost her to his best friend. How stupid was he that one night at the sorority? "Remember who held you, Rayna," Koby muttered before Jake came back and sat down beside her, placing an arm around her shoulder, "How's everybody holding up?" Jake smiled brightly. The opening previews played on the audiences faces, quietening those who spoke. Koby's hand rose higher up Rose's leg, Rose holding onto Koby's hand. She gave him a long, deep kiss before the movie started. Koby's forearm was still touching Rayna's and drove him into a fluster of emotions, a spark sitting right between them. He wanted to get down on his knees and apologise, and ask her to come back. But that was the last thing on his agenda for her.

With all the chatter she realized something. Koby was good with words. He knew exactly what to say and do to get what he wanted. A reaction, some action, or a sassy reply. But she was so not going to freak out at him. It was just part of who he was, being a jerk and all. But her eyes couldn't hide how much those little comments hurt her. He put his arm right by hers, which sent tingles down her spine. "Remember who held you, Rayna," Koby muttered before Jake came back and sat down beside her, placing an arm around her shoulder, "How's everybody holding up?" Jake smiled brightly. She then gave him a long kiss, to prove she was definitely with Jake. But something was pulling her closer to Koby. She was leaning over onto Jake's shoulder as her hand began to twitch. Her arm slightly moving, and with every arm hair brushing his, she felt this strong spark. She tried to make it casual as she readjusted and her hand "accidentally" landed a bit on his. Her pinky and his almost linked. But she kept her eyes on the screen, not making eye contact with the boy sitting next to her, that was driving her mad.

Koby's face almost froze as Rayna's hand was almost on top of his, their pinky's almost intertwining. Koby controlled the blush that wanted to rule his composure, but he was well disciplined to not let silly emotions show. A smirk crossed his face when he saw in the corner of his eye how Rayna was trying to desperately to claim Jake. For some odd reason, it was so much more easier for Koby. His hand that was on Rose's thigh climbed even higher before she let out a sigh saying to watch it or else they'll get caught. Koby rolled his eyes, stifling a laugh. His arm beside Rayna's grew warm from the tension between them. His fingers slightly crawled underneath hers, trying to link their hands like they usually would have so naturally. But Rayna flicked them away, a small unnoticable movement to anybody but them. Koby cleared his throat, looking at Rayna who was looking up at him. The tension between them could have been visible in the air, the electricity that was trying to overcome their needs. He looked back up at the screen that opened the beginning of Breaking Dawn. His hand soon found it's way underneath Rayna's again. Koby looked discreetly to his left to see what Jake was doing, but he was completely fixated on the movie.

With his hand sliding under hers, it felt so right and so wrong. So she flicked it away, trying to lean more on Jake. Koby cleared his throat as she gave him a desirable look. She couldn't help it. She missed the good Koby she had at her house those nights before. But he had changed, and she knew Jake was perfect for her. Then she felt Koby's hand move under hers again, letting her fingers fall in the spaces between his. She looked back over to Jake who was still engaged in the movie. With her empty hand she took a sip of her slurpee and gave Koby a "we shouldn't be doing this" look. But yet, she didn't move her hand away. It was during the middle of the movie she moved her hand, she felt too guilty and instead she wrapped her arms around Jake. Jake appreciating this and giving her a quick peck. Rayna was done looking at Koby, even with his jerk tendencies, he was still irresistible.

Koby noted the look Rayna gave him, but he knew too well that he was definitely on her mind, and she wanted him back. He smirked when she sipped her drink, and once again when she moved her hand away. He sighed a little as Jake kissed the girl that was supposedly his for a day. Was that all it had been? Just a one day thing? Did she just want the attention? Koby looked over at Rose who was nibbling her thumbnail, her free hand caressing Koby's inner thigh. He grimaced and flicked away her hand roughly. Rolling her eyes, she slumped back in her seat, arms folded across her chest. Koby almost laughed because of how serious she took him. But his eyes never stayed too long on the screen before him. Not only because it was boring, but because he was so fixated on the girl beside him; the girl he could not have. With their arms still touching, Koby knocked her arm off playfully, grabbing Jake's attention, who only frowned and shrugged. A few minutes passed when Koby dropped his arm beside Rayna's, playing with her fingers underneath the arm rest where their hands could not been seen. It was the old Koby that was burning for the feelings he felt the night of the storm. He wanted the other Rayna back too. His fingers trailed around the top of her hand before settling underneath her palm, grasping tightly onto her fingers that were intertwined with his.

Rayna was freaking out. She was in the middle and was being pulled from both sides. She felt Koby knocking off her arm again, this time grabbing Jake's attention. But she felt like laughing. Jake knew nothing and she didn't know if she should tell him or not. She dropped her hand, she was done with games. Koby wasn't. He started fiddling with her fingers, sending her goose bumps all over, making Jake put his arm around her for "warmth". Then Koby settled with holding her hand. She didn't know what to do. She was conflicted.

The movie ended and she pulled her hand away faster than a cheetah in full sprint. She let Jake kiss her cheek as all of them got up to get their things. She glanced at Koby who was staring at her. What did I just do.. With a sigh, the group walked out of the theater and into their cars. "See, wasn't that bad? Think you'll be able to endure a dinner with him?" Jake said as he began to back out of the parking space. She half smiled, "yea.." Then she left it at that until they got to the restaurant. Rayna and Jake were seated by the waiter, as they had arrived first, and waited for the other "couple" that would join them.

Koby and Rose lingered behind at the cinema for a few minutes before leaving to Koby's car. It was lightly spitting rain outside, sticking to their hair. Koby held Rose's car door open for her to let her inside, the most gentleman thing he has done by far that night. He then got in the car and drove to their next destination. The whole drive he was freaking out about dinner. Was he sitting next to Rose again? He really wanted to sit next to Jake this time, instead of Rayna. Maybe the girls should sit together to get to know each other further? Koby's thoughts were in a fluster as he pulled into the restaurant parking, pulling up next to Jakes car. Koby let Rose get out by herself, walking in without her but she trailed after him like a puppy.

Inside, the restaurant was fairly high class. Koby felt lucky to pick out the clothes he found. The evening sun was flowing in through the windows, lighting up the large room. There were windows from the ceiling to the floor, white, silk curtains framing them. The tables and chairs were all elegant in design, a mahogany against cream tiles. Koby was quite surprised at the choice of the restaurant. What was Jake trying to prove to Rayna? Koby wasn't angry, not yet. But this was quite off the railing for a first date... for either of the couples.

Rose finally caught up to Koby after Koby had spotted Jake and Rayna at the podium, finding their already reserved seats. Jake had motioned to Koby to just follow after saying their names to the host. Jake pulled out a seat for Rayna to sit on, Jake sitting beside her. Rose was already sitting down next to Jake before Koby had the chance to pull out a chair, so he ended up sitting next to Rayna again. He could not endure another half an hour of this. He could not endure just one simple dinner, watching her be with his best friend even when she knew. But no, Jake didn't know. Jake had no clue that they knew each other, or better yet, even knew they had been together. If only he had gone to that party. Jake cleared his throat, breaking the awkward silence that had fallen on their table. He picked up one of the very fancy menu's before him and turned to Rayna, "What are you getting?" He asked, his voice quiet, as if not to disturb any other customers around him. Koby looked at Rose, not bothering to listen to Rayna's response. It seems Rose had already chosen her meal, waiting neatly with her legs folded and her arms on the table. "What are you getting?" Koby muttered. Rose daintily picked up her menu and pointed to her choice. Ugh, seafood... Rose smiled at Koby's distaste. He wasn't feeling rather hungry, if anything he had no appetite but he had chosen a simple meat dish of steak and vegetables.

"So, how did we enjoy the movie?" Jake asked, innocently trying to create small talk. Koby resisted the urge to smirk as he said cooly, "Quite...touching. How sad that this was the last movie of the series," poison moved through his words. The words could almost be felt darting through the air towards Rayna before Jake replied, "Eh, it was too sappy for me," He shrugged it off, smiling and grabbing Rayna's hand on top of the table. "Well I thought it was so romantic," Rose sighed, placing her head on top of her hands. Rayna remained silent, looking quite pale in the midst of things. Maybe it was the light? Was that a tint of anger at the corner of her lips? Those lips. Koby would do anything to feel them against his own again. His hands were under the table, and he could feel the almost visible electricity between them as they sat side by side. He had to resist the sensations and instinct to place his hand on her knee. They were sitting all to close at the rounded table, they were sure to all notice.

"So, Rayna," Koby began, his voice sounding like venom. Her name sent a sensation running up and down his spine. "Have you chose an actual meal? Or a salad?" The question clearly a jab at her small, well-kept figure. A smirk was plastered all across his face. He looked at Rose for support but found none. She was frowning, and this was odd. "I think she should choose to a salad...she doesn't want anything else going to her hips," Ah, so Rose was still on Koby's side. The back up of her comment sent red colours flushing up Jake's face. "You two..." He sneered, shaking his head. "Why do you have to be rude?" He asked rhetorically. Koby shrugged simply. Rayna was looking at her hands that were now sitting in her lap. "It was a joke, Jake. Chill," Koby shrugged too, sighing. Jake rolled his eyes, "It wasn't funny, Koby. Cut it out" Silence fell among the table again, but it wasn't awkward. It was tension. Whether it was between Koby and Jake, Koby and Rayna, Rose and Rayna...or simply all four of them, when the waiter came to gather their orders, his eyes were darting around like flies, sweat breaking across his pimpled face.

Fionna's week went on. She felt out of sorts the entire week, moping about. She hadn't composed a song or played a single instrument since that first day and she could feel the withdrawal. Music was her drug, and she wanted to torture herself. She realized that their fight had been all her fault, and she was intensely remorseful over it. Rayna had tried to take her out and cheer her up, but Fionna didn't feel like doing anything.

In her current state of being, Fionna had completely forgotten about Andrew's phone. She had seen Andrew from time to time in the classes they shared, hut each time, she couldn't muster the wherewithal to speak or look at him.

It was Thursday now, and Fionna had an exam to take that she hadn't studied for. She pulled herself from her bed and dressed for her classes. After she was ready to face the day, Fionna grabbed her schoolbag and left the house.

She arrived at her class and took her seat, waiting for class to begin.

"Quite...touching. How sad that this was the last movie of the series," Rayna's eyes widened as she tried not to make a face. She knew he was pushing it. He was always pushing a bit too far. She couldn't hear the conversation anymore. Her mind was rerunning the movie situation, with what if's and should'a, could'as. She looked to her lap as she fiddled with edges of her dress. "So, Rayna," Koby began, snapping her back to reality. "Have you chose an actual meal? Or a salad?" Rayna clenched the chair, but tried to keep her face calm. She wanted them to get along, I mean, Jake was his best friend. "I think she should choose to a salad...she doesn't want anything else going to her hips," Rose chimed in. Rayna was fully enraged. I'm pretty sure Koby liked this body a few weeks ago... Rayna sat up straight and figured she'd take it like a man. With Jake sticking up for her it was easier for her to act strong. "It was a joke, Jake. Chill," Jake rolled his eyes, "It wasn't funny, Koby. Cut it out" Rayna reached her hand across the table, "It's fine.. It doesn't really bother me.." But Jake wouldn't take that for an answer. He was about to start yelling when the waiter came back. "Alright, do you guys know what you're ordering?" He said with an Australian accent. They all ordered, Rayna didn't get a salad, and when he left they were dead silent.

Then Rayna got up. She didn't really think it through, but she was standing, looking at all of them who were looking at her. "I'm going to the washroom.." She walked off, making sure not to trip in her heels. She was very clumsy when she was nervous or stressed. In the bathroom she made some funny faces in the mirror and tried to cheer herself up. But she wasn't happy. And no number of silly faces could fix it. As she walked back to the table Rose glared at her. Rayna glared back. She wanted to say Hey Rose, go suck a dick. Oh wait... You probably will tonight.. I guess you can wait. But Rayna had enough self control to just sit back down like the pretty girl she was. Once their meals had arrived everyone began to eat. The awkward was gone, all that was left was the hunger. But Rayna was still stressing and she only nibbled at her plate. She felt Koby's eyes look over and smirk. "Told you she should have gotten the salad..." Koby laughed at his "joke". But Jake was done. Jake pushed back from the table, "Are you done? Cause I'm done with your bull shit Koby. You are being a jerk to this beautiful girl that I really like. So shut up. This date was for you two to get along and at least that's what Rayna has been trying to do. But you are being an insensitive jerk." Rayna could see how red Jake's face was. He was more offended than her. "It's really fine.. I'm not that offended.. People say stuff like this all the time.." Rayna was cut off by Jake, "No. Just no. I don't care. You should be pissed right off. Koby has been picking on you all night and I'm sick of it." Jake got up and took out his wallet. He threw some bills on the table and began to walk out. Rayna, who was still at the table, slowly and awkwardly got up and started walking away. "Thanks for the great date... Let's do it again sometime, alright?" Rayna smiled with sarcasm as she grabbed her purse and went to meet Jake in the car.

The tension of Jake's anger was inescapable in the car. It heated his skin, flushed his face and made his grip tight on the steering wheel, causing his knuckles to turn white. His eyes stayed focused on the road, only rarely he looked at Rayna's face, which was always looking down at her hands. Jake sighed deeply, they were still almost fifteen minutes away from her home. "I'm sorry about tonight...Koby is-" "Hard to handle?" Rayna filled him in. Jake only nodded, pursing his lips tightly together. His eyes were narrowed and fixated on the road before him that had become slippery from the slight drizzle of rain. Jake felt Rayna's innocent eyes on him, watching his every move. It didn't bother him, but what did was how she could simply brush off the insults from the horrible couple back at the restaurant.

He moved a free hand to rest on her thigh, "I'm sorry," he said again. "I should have handled it better.." He trailed off, circling his fingers on her knee. He felt her hand land on top of his, even though it felt so out of place, it was the only comfort offered. They soon arrived outside of the sorority, no sign of Rose being dropped off yet as all the lights were still out. Jake pulled up as close to the castle as possible before letting Rayna out of the car and walking her up to the front door in silence. Anger still rested on his skin and in his veins. How could Koby be so mean? Rayna opened the front door and turned to wave Jake off. Jake leaned down and pulled her close to him, holding her tightly before pulling back and planting a kiss on her lips that was more rough than usual. Probably out of anger, but it seemed like something more than that.

Without any goodbye, Jake walked back to the car leaving Rayna standing by the door watching him leave. He soon got home and went to bed.

"I should have handled it better.." He trailed off, circling his fingers on her knee. She put her hand over his. She knew it was hard, hearing horrible things about the one you loved. Well if he did love her. She unbuckled as he pulled up to the house. she could tell he was ashamed but still filled with anger. Rayna opened the front door and turned to wave Jake off. Jake leaned down and pulled her close to him, holding her tightly before pulling back and planting a kiss on her lips that was more rough than usual. She watched him drive off as she went inside. Rayna wasn't sure if she liked that kiss or what she thought of it but she knew he needed time to cool off. She walked to her room and closed the door. She had had enough for one night. Now, as she lay in her bed, all she could think about was Koby.

Friday morning Rayna didn't even get out of bed. She ended up missing her morning classes, then skipping the others for a photo shoot. Around 10am she heard Rose come home, Rayna ignored her existence completely. She probably had a really nice night with Koby. Those two are partners in crime. By the time she got home, all she wanted was a cute text from Jake. She imagined him coming over with chocolates and cuddling up with her. But he wasn't there, nor were there any sweet texts, like usual. Maybe I should go check on him.. Things had kind of been left off on a rocky point last night. No thanks to Koby and his hoe. Last night had really been a disaster. Rayna decided to grab her purse and headed towards Jake's place. She needed some fresh air anyways. Hopefully he'd be willing to talk and she could help him recover from the blow out between him and his best friend.

"Pour me, pour me...pour me another, holds me, holds me, like no other. One more drink...ergh..." Red rims framed Jake's eyes, a bottle of JD sitting right by his side. Not even a cup there to pour the alcohol into, and it was pure, straight liquid of burning sins. A smile crept to his lips as the song continued as he thought of the last time he had been this drunk. Hell, it was barely even four in the afternoon. A knock was directed from behind him, his head too blurry to tell. "Go away!" His voice was slurred. Another knock sounded, causing a frown to appear on his face. "Ugh..leave me..." He said as he raised the bottle to let the alcohol pour down his throat. Another knock, more frantic than the last. Jake rolled his eyes, wobbling to a stand from the stool that was placed by the counter. He wobbled over to the front door, opening it with his free hand, JD in his other.

He was shirtless and wearing the sweat pants he was wearing a few nights before. He reeked off alcohol, but it didn't bother him none, he couldn't tell. He squinted his eyes at the visitor before him, leaning closely to identify the person. "Hah, Rayna!?" He said, surprised. "What are you doing here?" He muttered, his voice slurred and hoarse. He cleared his throat, placing an arm around Rayna's shoulders, bringing her inside the house. "Sorry, if I knew you were coming..." Jake lost his track of thought, "Want somethin' to eat?" He raised an eyebrow over drowsey looking eyes. He took a swig from the bottle in his hand, breathing in deeply. "I haven't eaten yet..." He muttered. "Look at ya! You look so..." His voice trailed off as he walked back over to his seat, placing his head in his hands.

She looked at the boy she was "falling for". It was disgusting. But who wouldn't be a mess after what happened? "What are you doing here?" He muttered, his voice slurred and hoarse. "Just coming to check on you babe..." She stepped inside as the aroma of alcohol filled her nostrils. Drinking? This early? He placed an arm around her, Want somethin' to eat?" He raised an eyebrow over drowsey looking eyes. He took another drink as she reluctantly walked with him. This reminded her of her father. It was scary to think of him, or be near anyone who could be like him. She watched him go back over to the counter and sit down. She looked worried for his well being. For her well being. "I think you've had enough to drink... Why are you drinking in the middle of the day?" She put her hand on his shoulder only to be knocked off by a shrug. She really didn't know how to handle the situation.

She tried to gently take the bottle but his grasp was firm. "Don't. I need it." Then she really began to fret. She sat next to him as he struggled to lift his head up. "I just can't believe someone I thought I knew so well... He acted like such a jerk... I thought we were friends!" He slammed his empty hand on the table, frightening Rayna. "Why don't we just lay down? You look like you should sleep this off?" Jake then turned to her and pulled her in for a kiss. It was gross and had no effort. She pulled back immediately. "What? You don't like my kisses, sweet lips?" She closed her eyes, trying to figure out what to say to her slob of a boyfriend. "Please... Just stop... You're freaking me out Jake..."

"Please... Just stop... You're freaking me out Jake..." Jake frowned at those words, "How?" His nose twisted into a confused expression. "Let's go lay down then," He said, smiling. He pulled her up to her feet along with him. He clutched to his bottle tightly as if he were to part with it, he'd die. He grabbed Rayna's hand firmly, not sure whether or not she would struggle or fret. He fixated his gaze onto the stairs, making sure to take each step with care. Once they reached to the top, he opened up his door, letting Rayna walk in first. He took another swig of his drink before sitting down on his bed, placing the bottle down and laying back. "Come here bub," Jake motioned Rayna to come lay her head on his chest. She reluctantly did so, but went unnoticed by Jake. He closed his eyes, stroking Rayna's side.

As Rayna got comfy moving her legs into a comfortable position, Jake grabbed her hand and kissed her finger tips lightly, breathing heavily, his eyes drooping. "Hmm, you're beautiful," He mumbled, sounding incoherent. Jake pulled Rayna' hand lightly to lift her arm over his chest to bring her on top of his chest, so that she was looking down on him. A goofy smile appeared his lips, a sigh escaping them. "So, Rayna.." Jake hinted as he kissed under her neck. The effect of the alcohol had long set in, enraging his senses and sensations and desires that needed to be filled. He trailed a kiss down her neck reaching her collar bone then turned her over so he was holding his weight above her. "When can we," - He stopped talking to grab her hand - "Take this to the next level?" He raised an eyebrow, a smirk almost identical to Koby's crossing his face as he guided her hand to his inner thigh.

She usually like being this close to him. But something felt wrong. He kissed her as she tried to keep calm. But this wasn't Jake. "When can we," - He stopped talking to grab her hand - "Take this to the next level?" Rayna was disgusted. She couldn't believe Jake had just said that. She was almost giving up hope. Every guy who had seemed nice at first, were all just pigs. Rayna pushed Jake off of her. she knew the alcohol had been affecting him big time but she would not just "let it slide". "Jake... You need some rest. Talk to me when you're not drunk" She stormed out of the room and sat on the stairs. Crying and crying, Rayna was yet again fooled by a dog in shining armor. Looking outside at the rain, she didn't want to walk home. She didn't want to move. But she was alone, in her drunk, unworthy boyfriends house. He'd be back to normal later, she thought. But she knew that he was having a break down. She didn't know who to call. Everyone was busy, Fionna at work, and no one else to call. But she knew Koby would come. Even though he mocked her and tried to hurt her, he would come. She walked to the table where Jake had been drinking, and lucky enough, picked up his phone. She looked through his contacts but no Koby. Instead he found a Asshole who used to be my best friend and decided to call up the number. She tried to cover her sobs, "Hey Koby... It's Rayna," She wiped her eyes and took a deep breath. Suddenly she heard some light thunder. "Could you come pick me up? I'm at Jake's house... And... Well I need you..."

Koby had started his afternoon with a shower, a shave and some video games. He was feeling the effects of the hang over all too clearly and regretted like he did every time he did drink. He felt clean for once, and he felt empty. If that's what he'd call it. He had lost his best friend, who didn't even answer his calls that morning. He hated him, he hated Rayna, he hated Rose. Nothing seemed right. He couldn't be bothered going to his classes, feeling all too much like poo. He got up to go grab a sandwich before returning to his game when he heard his phone calling. It was Jake's ring tone. Koby glared at the sound across the room, not knowing whether to dive for it, or ignore it. With a sign, he assumed it'd be best to talk it out. Rolling his eyes he answered the phone to a crying girl, "Hey Koby...It's Rayna. Could you come pick me up? I'm at Jake's house... And... Well I need you..."
"Rayna!" Koby exclaimed, a frown crossing his features quickly before disappearing. "What's wrong? Why are you crying?" Koby's voice was sincere and caring, like it had been the night he held her when she broke down. All he heard on the other line were sobs and incoherent speech. "Look, Rayna, calm down. Listen, stand outside, I'll be there in a minute," He hung up quickly before running to grab his car keys and rushing outside to his car.

To his surprise, it was raining, almost storming. He groaned. He hated driving in storms. It unnerved him a little and to think he'd be also picking up a mess of a girl unnerved him more. He drove slower than he usually would, but he'd rather turn up at Jake's door step alive than dead. As he pulled up to the drive way, he saw a figure running towards the almost parked car. Before he had the chance, the girl opened the car door and flung herself to Koby's opened arms. "Shh.." Koby resisted the urge to smirk. This was almost like last time, except, this time, his friend screwed up. "Let me just get us home, I know that he'd be drunk..." Koby sneered. He pulled Rayna out of his arms, not looking at her face, or her eyes. He didn't want to look at her. He didn't want to be there for her again just to be pushed away, but he'd protect her from anything. He pulled back out of the driveway and headed home as the storm rolled on top of them, sending lightning bolts across the sky and lighting up the road.

When they arrived at Koby's home, he parked in the garage and got out quickly to open Rayna's door. She stumbled out of the car, still sobbing but not as heavily as before. She fell into his arms, not in romance, out of comfort. Koby placed his hand on the back of her head, holding her face against his warm chest. His other hand held her waist, stroking her back. They stood still for god knows how long before they finally stood apart.

With his caring words she went outside to wait for him. The time passed as she cried her eyes out. She wondered if people could run out of tears. She hopped into the car as soon as it pulled up. She just wanted to be in someones arms. "Shh..Let me just get us home, I know that he'd be drunk..." Koby sneered. She didn't like the way he back talked him, but then again, she didn't really care. She could back talk him for hours, if she had the chance. The sky lit up with lightning and she tried not to grab him or steer him off the road. She didn't want to get out of the car when they pulled up to an unfamiliar house. She wanted to just sit in the car and be comforted. Koby opened her door as they walked up to the door leading to inside the house. She fell into his arms, not in romance, out of comfort. Her face on his warm chest, she could feel some of the sparks that had caused this big mess reoccur. She tried to ignore them as they finally stood up straight. She wasn't crying anymore, but took the time to wipe her drooling mascara from her face. "Thanks for being here... You always seem to be here..." She pulled him close once more, just standing in his warmth. She honestly didn't want to let go of him. Ever. She didn't have anyone else to cling to, except maybe Freddie. But he wasn't warm, and couldn't tell her she'd be alright. "It's okay..." Koby reassured her as he stroked her hair. She didn't know what was going to happen but she was getting chills, not only from Koby, but from the cold stormy weather. "Can we go inside?" She asked, looking straight at the face she once kissed.

"Can we go inside?" Rayna's voice was small, her body shivered. Koby nodded, placing a hand on the small of her back and guiding her inside. It was warm inside, the home very warm in colour - lots of browns and oranges, a splash of red on a pillow or a chair. "Did you want anything? A warm drink or something?" Koby offered, showing her to the lounge room where a large sofa bed awaited where Koby had previously laid on, playing his video games. Rayna nodded slowly, looking at the couch and back at him. Koby's eyes narrowed a smile playing on his lips, "Rayna, is fine," He nodded his head, "You're here because Jake's pissed you off, not because you want to be here," He said, shrugging while he walked into his small kitchen. The house was nice. It was great for Koby, everything was big and small enough for him to inhabit.

In the kitchen, Koby made up a warm beverage for Rayna, hot cocoa. It smelt warm and frothy, and rich and chocolatey. Koby loved hot cocoa's. He walked back into the lounge, careful not to spill Rayna's drink. He found Rayna with her knees brought up to her chest sitting in the corner of the sofa bed. He handed her the drink carefully, her eyes looking as if they were analyzing everything. "I didn't spike it..." Koby joked half-heartedly. He took a seat in the recliner chair that was placed beside the sofa, but too far for Koby to touch her, or give her comfort. He hoped his very presence had given her comfort, for the fact the place was quiet and lit appropriately, he also hoped she knew he wouldn't do anything this time.

The storm outside was low like a bass, the house creaking slightly under the pressure, but not as violent as the previous one weeks before. The rain battered outside on the windows, making the house cooler than it usually was. "You going to tell me what happened...or do I have to guess?" Koby raised his eye brows, crossing his arms over his chest as he reclined back in the chair. He still wouldn't look at her face, or her eyes. He didn't want to create a fuss about something so simple.

"You're here because Jake's pissed you off, not because you want to be here," Koby was wrong. She needed him. Jake never made her feel like the way Koby did. Koby always had a way of calming her, even without saying anything. She examined the house as he went to make hot cocoa. It was warm and inviting, just like Koby had been during the last storm. Rayna could handle rain, but not storms. She watched him make his way back and give her the mug of comfort. He sat far away from her. Almost too far. "I didn't spike it..." Koby joked half-heartedly. She wanted him to kiss her. But she knew she'd regret it and call him a pig. She never really forgave him for what happened. She knew it was probably pms and that she was unworthy to be angry. She was all too silent. Thinking about Jake, how she ruined two best friends. She never wanted that to happen, she never wanted to hurt Koby like he had hurt her. But she guessed he kind of deserved it. "You going to tell me what happened...or do I have to guess?" She looked back at her drink as she circled the rim with her finger. "He reminded me of my father.." For some reason she felt comfortable sharing it with him. Almost like talking to him was therapy. "He was pushing for me to..." She stopped herself. She knew if she finished her sentence, it would hurt Koby more than herself. "The storm was raging and Jake was drunk and not being himself... I just didn't know what to do.." Rayna started sobbing again as she looked over at him. She didn't know what to do with her eyes. Whenever they looked at Koby she felt sparks. Sparks that should have been for Jake. Whenever she looked away, she wanted him more. "Koby.." She started to say but she then felt him moving closer, now on the couch next to her.

"He was pushing me to... The storm was raging and Jake was drunk and not being himself... I just didn't know what to do..." Koby frowned when she trailed off at the beginning of her sentence. He froze, almost paralyzed. He knew almost exactly what Jake was like when he was drunk - Koby and Jake were too alike in some aspects and quite the opposite in others; that's what made them best friends. Koby tried hard to not roll his eyes, but Rayna began to cry again. Koby looked down at his hands as he began to move over to the sofa as she said his name. That was when it hit home. That he still cared just as much as he did that first time he held her in the dark at the party at her sorority. He didn't realise it then, but he knew there was something there. Electricity ran through his veins, the urge to cradle her in his arms. The fact that she compared Jake to her father was quite alarming. How far had Jake actually gone?

Koby moved next to Rayna as she sobbed, turning her so that her curled up body was up against Koby's chest, an arm wrapped around her shoulders and his other hand caressing her legs as her knees were still against her chest. Koby closed his eyes, sighing. This is what it was meant to be like - without the crying. Just them, the two of them together, him holding her. He knew she was scared of storms, and he knew that she couldn't bare violence or men in general. Such a fragile heart and delicate figure. Koby pressed his head against her's, his lips near her ear. "Rayna," His voice wasn't like velvet, it wasn't like ice, and it wasn't like the sarcastic tone he usually held. His voice sounded... loving? "Rayna," He said again until her sobs quietened. "I still miss you..." He left it at that. He didn't move a bone in his body, he resisted the urge to breathe, and he didn't look at her eyes in fear of what he might see.

"I still miss you..." She pressed herself closer, in acknowledgement. "I've missed you too... A lot..." She admitted. Rayna was calm now. No more crying. She got what she wanted. She wanted Koby, and she was holding onto him with all her might. This is what should have happened last time.. She thought as she kissed his neck once. "I'm sorry about what happened last time... I have a hard time opening up.. and the fact you let me in, and came to help me... It means so much Koby.." Rayna bit her lip. She wasn't finished. Not even close. "I guess that whenever you're around, even if mocking me, I feel a connection. One I've never felt before... it's so strong it kind of hurts when I don't act upon it.." She confessed. Telling him her deepest feelings was hard, just like the first night when he was there for her. But she didn't want to break her commitment to Jake, especially if she hadn't broken up with him first. She at least deserved him that much. She looked back up at Koby who kissed her forehead. "And Jake...?" She didn't know how to respond. Rayna felt so obligated to Koby, like the spark would burn her if she didn't let it out. But then again Jake was just going through a rough time. If the people she thought had loved her hadn't given up on her she might not have gone through what she did. "I really don't want to hurt him anymore than I have.... That we have..." she could tell Koby understood. I mean this was his best friend. She adjusted herself as she lay down with Koby spooning with her. His arm draped over her, she relaxed with him. Breathing slow, with him, and nuzzling her face in his neck. It wasn't all that late but she was so comfortable, and it was so quiet, she was just falling asleep.

Koby's eyes widened at the confessing of her feelings for him. He was stunned, utterly shocked. Really? He swore she hated him, and that was why she chose Jake. But somehow, he had known that even if the way she acted like she wanted Jake, he knew she wanted him just like he wanted her. But this time, he was tired of being pushed away and trying. It was too overwhelming. Instead, he laid there with her in his arms, "I know.." He whispered in response of Jake. "I don't know where I went wrong, Rayna," Koby began. His voice was shaky, uncertain. That was a completely odd thing for Koby, to be uncertain. "I care too much for you.." He muttered. His voice had no emotion, it was quiet and clear. It was the only noise among the rain that battered the windows. But only too soon did Rayna close her eyes that she was almost asleep. Koby could feel her breathing getting heavy from slumber. He didn't want to move her, he wanted to keep her their in his arms, even if she belonged to someone else, even if she wasn't his to have. It was a greedy thing to do to his best friend...but that was Jake's problem, not his.

Koby looked down at the girl in his arms, the urge to kiss her lips was overwhelming, the spark more like an fire in his chest urging him to press his lips against hers. He knew the warmth to expect, the movement and electricity that would follow. He knew where it would stop too, he knew her limits. He knew her too well even for a short limit of time. But what he couldn't wash from his mind was the fact it was his best friend she was with. Was she worth it to throw a friendship like their's for a girl? Koby closed his eyes, edging his head away from hers, his arms too loose around her waist, not holding her tight enough.

Koby knew his limits. Those limits were to not cross his friends lines.

Rayna opened her eyes to the warm colors of browns and red. She smiled looking at the arms around her waist. But when she looked at the face, she felt a blanket of guilt fall over her. She knew she hadn't done anything but still. She didn't want to sneek away, but she slid the phone that had been shoved in her pocket since the night before. Checking her messages she cringed.
"I'm so sorry... I don't know what came over me..", "I never should have done that, I'm so dumb. Please forgive me?" and many others like, "Just text me back hun... I hope you're okay..."
Rayna clenched her jaw as she rolled over to face Koby. "Koby..." She said softly. She wanted to wake him without him upsetting him. "Koby.. Wake up.." She gently shook his arm as he began to moan. He went to kiss her cheek without thinking and she backed her head away. "I have to go see Jake.. He is worried about me. Could you drop me off?" Rayna crossed her fingers, knowing he would probably groan and be upset. She didn't really have another option. She definitely didn't pay attention on the way there and it was a much longer drive than any walk would be. She stroked his arm "Please?"

"Please?" It took Koby a moment to register what she was saying, and trying to see how it made sense after what Rayna told him the night before. Slowly starting to sit up, Koby frowned. "Wait, what?" He almost yelled. Instantly, he was furious. "How...how can you go back to him when he tried to get in your pants! How can you go back to him so easily when he fucks up, but not to me!?" He was angry, furious. His hands were clenched into fists, his eyes as cold as the night had been. He shook his head, "What the actual fuck Rayna, you're going to take him back that easily?" Koby glared at the innocent face he held before. He stood up, grabbing his keys from the table beside his front door, storming out to his car, expecting Rayna to follow if she wanted to go back to Jake. "I don't fucking get it," Koby was purely upset and angry. He couldn't function properly, his eyes moving too fast.

The drive was silent, the car moving too fast. What time was it? It would have to be early in the morning? Koby checked his dashboard clock. It was barely seven in the morning. He groaned loudly. His hands gripped the steering wheel hard, anger coursing his movements. They ended up at Jake's house too soon, Rayna silent the whole time. "Get out," Koby glared at her, making sure she closed the door properly before driving off again. This time, he headed in the direction of the sorority.

Rayna got out of the car as it sped away. She never said she was going to forgive him. She never said she'd take him back. She said she needed to talk to him. Rayna was just flustered by Koby's easily changeable moods. She walked up to the door and knocked hard. Waiting outside, she saw Jake open the door. He looked... disappointed? "Why'd Koby drive you here?" He said bluntly. She looked at her feet. She felt like she was being interrogated, but it's probably because she hadn't told him about her relationship with Koby. "Can I come inside..?" He walked her inside, with a hand on her hip. Once they both sat down, Rayna told him everything. She told him about the night during the storm, the party and the night before. He seemed shocked but not upset. "So that's why there was so much tension..." She nodded. "But I didn't even know you knew Koby, let alone he was your best friend, when we met up at that pizza place. My feelings are genuine and I don't want to lose you... that is if what happened last night doesn't happen again." And by last night she meant both parties. He then pulled her up to him and she kissed him, cupping his face with her hands. But the same passion wasn't there. Maybe it's from being honest and letting out the secrets. But the kiss didn't feel right. She sat on top of him as he pushed the hair from her face. "Are you okay?" He said. He was obviously talking about the storm, "I'm sorry... It won't happen again.." He admitted. She smiled and kissed him one more time. Still no spark

Jake rubbed Rayna's back as she sat in his lap, their foreheads touching. There was a sort of feeling in the air of uncertainty that went by undetected by Jake. His mind kept wondering back to the night before, how he had treated Rayna and what he had tried to make her do. His thoughts led him back to where Rayna left him, and how Koby had dropped her off. "Rayna?" A question already forming in his voice. "So, what happened last night between you and Koby?" Jake's eyes narrowed slightly at the taste of his friends name on his tongue. He was trying to imagine them together; Koby's cruel, teasing nature along the guarded, loving Rayna. It just didn't seem like a puzzle pieces to match.

"So, what happened last night between you and Koby?" Jake's eyes narrowed slightly, making Rayna nervous. She knew nothing physically happened, but her emotions definitely had been affected. "Nothing.. He was just holding me during the storm.. " She didn't dare mention the kiss on the forehead. She knew that would break him. Rayna was rubbing his hand as she tried to scooch closer to him. Not that she could get much closer, but she felt like they weren't connecting. "Want to go out for brunch?" Jake said with a smile. What a perfect smile. "Sure" Rayna got up as he led her out to the car. "Oh.. Can I go home and change first? I'm still wearing what I wore yesterday.." Being the girl she was, very convincing, Jake started heading towards the sorority.

Koby pulled up to the sorority, anger occupying his thoughts, controlling each and every one of his movements. His body was rigid, his fluid movements firm. A scowl was worn upon his face as he knocked and opened the sorority door, his aim to find Rose. "Hello?" A voice came in the direction of the kitchen, a figure appearing in the entrance to the room. Koby raised an eyebrow as he noted the shorts and bra Rose was wearing. Rose smiled at his expression, "I thought I was going to be home alone today," She purred across the room. "Why would you think that?" Koby countered, a smirk lighting up his features as he crossed the room slowly. Rose crossed her arms over her chest, stepping back slowly towards the kitchen, playing along with his game. "Well, I didn't expect a visitor," Rose pursed her lips, a smile playing on the curves of her mouth, enticing Koby to come and get her. Koby closed the space between them in four quick, long strides and Rose was in his arms, up against the counter before she had a chance to protest.

Koby's lips came crashing down on her's, urgent and desperate. His hands were exploring her body just as much as hers. He picked her up from underneath her thighs, placing her on the counter, pressing their bodies tighter together until there was no space. Koby trailed kisses down her neck, to her collar bone and landing just before her cleavage began before a knock at the open door behind them sounded, interrupting their actions.

Rayna jumped out of the car, "Just wait here. I won't be more than a few minutes!" She scurried inside and upstairs to her room. It was exactly the way she left it, and it felt more like home now. She slipped into her favorite jeans and a baggy sweater. She wanted to feel comfortable and get out of the clothes that smelled like Koby. She needed to commit herself to one boy. Whether she liked it or not. As Rayna walked downstairs she heard a faint noise. As she walked towards the kitchen she heard fumbling and the sucking of faces. Gross. Get a room. She turned the corner but no one was there. Following the sounds she then ended up in the living room where she saw Koby on top of the house slut. Rayna gasped out loud making them slow down, but never stop. She covered her mouth as she ran out the door and back into the car with Jake. "Ready to go?" He said sarcastically, "I thought you were just going to be a few minutes!" She gave him a fake smile as he started the engine. "Sorry, it's a girl thing." She put her hand on his knee, "So where to?"

Rayna spent most of her nights at Jake's place during the last month. After walking in on Rose and Koby, she felt unwelcome. With her head held high, Rayna got to know Andrew better, and spent a lot of time with Jake. But he never pushed her the way he did that one night. Jake had promised to keep off the alcohol while Rayna was away, which made her feel a lot safer. At school she was being buried alive in projects. She liked how artsy-fartsy they were, but it was a lot to take on. She had been getting a lot more shoots, almost 2 a week. Her name was getting pretty big, doing a shoot for Coco Chanel really put her on the list of must haves. Even though things seemed to be turning up, Rayna felt like something was missing. She knew what it was but didn't want to admit it to herself. She was missing Koby. The guy who was just as outrageous, spontaneous and unstable as she was. Every time he crossed her mind she'd pinch herself. She couldn't let the thought of him ruin her relationship with Jake.

Sunday morning Rayna woke up next to Jake. A sober, non head ache, Jake. "Good morning beautiful" He said as he shifted so he was over top of her. He kissed her neck and she giggled with delight. "Shhh... Andrew's probably still sleeping!" Rayna pointed to the door. But he kept kissing, "You say that every morning, but he doesn't seem to mind," She laughed some more, ending up on top of him. She sat over his abs, beginning to kiss his neck. They had been living in this puppy dog love for about a month now. She knew it wouldn't last forever, but it was definitely the best part of the relationship so far. So I have a photo shoot in an hour... Want to drive me?" She winked at him playfully. She knew he hated driving her places, but what was he going to say? No?

Rayna was just finishing off the shoot when she saw her phone buzz. Nude shoot tomorrow. Be prepared!"[/b] She cringed at the thought. She had never done a nude shoot and debated in her mind whether or not she should. First off would Jake be okay with it? Rayna read it again and again, finally realizing it was from Vogue. [i]The Vogue magazine. There wasn't a question about it. She was doing the shoot. On her bus ride home, Rayna decided to take out her sketch book. She seemed to be bringing it everywhere now since she had gotten so many ideas when she wasn't home. She began to draw the bus from pure memory of when she got on. When it was her stop, she closed the unfinished piece of art and began to walk to Jake's. She knew he wasn't home, he was working with Andrew on a film project, out on a beach somewhere. But using the spare key he gave her, she got into the house with ease. Placing her bag down, she decided to keep practicing video gaming.

Later that night when Jake came home Rayna decided she would make dinner. She cooked for about an hour and ended up making toast. Jake laughed, "That's cute... Let's get pizza okay?" She crossed her arms. She spent so much time making it. But she agreed since she was pretty famished as well. After calling in their orders, they watched an episode of Community. Cuddling and laughing was always her favorite pass time with Jake. She looked at the time, it had already been 25 minutes. "I'm going to pick up the pizza, k?" She kissed him softly as she grabbed her keys and drove off to the pizza place.

When Rayna was trying to get the pizzas, there seemed to be a hassle with the cashier. She couldn't find their order. Rayna was definitely ticked off but waited patiently as they made her order for free. On the drive back she ate two slices, and stopped off at the super market to pick up some ice cream. She got a tub of chocolate chunk, she knew it was Jake's favorite. When she pulled up to the drive way she saw Koby's car. Her mind was going over board with flash backs and memories. Trying to think of something else she closed her eyes. But all she saw was Koby. But she was glad that Koby had made an effort to come over. She knew deep inside Jake wanted to be the bigger person, but she also could tell he was tired of trying for a friend who didn't care. Hopefully Koby's visit would cheer him up. Rayna finally got out of the car and used her hip to close the car door. She made her way up the steps and walked into the house. "Hey Jake I'm back! I also got your fav ice cream!" She put the bags down on the counter as she could hear video games going on in the next room. "Seems you to are back to," She started to say until she turned the corner. Seeing Koby for some reason made her speechless. Her eyes immediately identified the hickey on his neck and the way his hair was messy. She turned back around and went back to the kitchen to put the ice cream in the freezer.

Koby turned around to face the source of the voice he knew so well, that continued to play over and over in his head. As the feminine form turned around the corner into Koby's vision, a smile stretched across his face, but only too soon she walked into the kitchen. Koby frowned before looking back at the tv screen, finding he had died.

"I think this is where I go home..." Koby whispered to Jake, which earned him a sympathetic look from Jake.

"It's too awkward, I'll text you later," Koby compromised. Jake sighed but nodded, "Alright, catch ya later," Jake said before turning off the tv and the console. Jake walked Koby to the door, watching him drive off before closing the door and walked into the kitchen where Rayna was.

Jake crossed his arms over his chest, leaning against the wall in the kitchen eyeing Rayna in silence with curious eyes. He knew something was off. Rayna stood behind the kitchen counter, looking back at Jake with wide open eyes. "What?" She half giggled.

"What's going on?" Jake sighed before taking a seat at the counter. "I mean...what's going on between you two now," Jake was curious. He knew Koby too well, and had started to know Rayna better. He was too smart to let something like this slide. He raised an eyebrow, awaiting a response from Rayna. "Nothing," Her voice was quiet, her eyes staring back at him. Jake nodded, pursing his lips.

"Don't lie Rayna. At least tell me what's up," Jake lent back in the chair, putting out his hand to place Rayna on his lap. Jake could feel something out of the ordinary.

She was pulled onto his lap, she didn't want to talk. What was she to say? I think I still like your best friend? Well that wasn't an option. "Don't lie Rayna. At least tell me what's up," She sighed, straightening up a bit. "I guess... It's weird seeing him here..." She wasn't lying. Seeing him around was very weird. Part of the reason she spent so much time at Jake's was because he wasn't here. Now he was invading both of her spaces. "Weird..? Are you not okay with us being friends?" He sounded concerned yet irritated. She bit her lip, trying not to look at him. "It's just he's invading our space. I thought we were hanging out then he just shows up? Out of no where? And you just let him in?" Her voice grew louder at the end of each question. Jake looked away, "How can you be so selfish?" Then she gave him a look. She stared at him. Me? Selfish? She crossed her arms and got off his lap. "You made my friend leave so you could spend time with me. Seeing me 24 hours a day isn't enough? I haven't spent time with him forever!" She didn't know he was so passionate about his friendship. "I didn't make him leave.." Jake cut her off, "But you did!" Rayna them started to walk away. She grabbed her purse and went to the door. "Bye.." She said quietly as she headed home. She was done with his bullshit for today. She didn't want the argument to go any further and had a long day.

Rayna drove with road rage. She was ever so emotional and over tired. She pulled up to the house and stormed up to her room ignoring Rose's bitchy comment. Rayna took her sketch book and climbed up onto the roof. It was getting dark and the sun was setting. Perfect. Rayna was almost finished her sketch when she heard a car pull up. Koby. She crawled closer to the edge of the roof and watched as he let Rose into the car. The light kiss on the cheek made her want to puke. Funny thing was, Rose had slept with some guy only a week ago. Open relationship much? Rayna sighed as they drove off. She wished she was with Jake. Rayna played over the dispute in her head. She began to dig through her memories for when she was with Kaleigh. They were so close and she would have been just as defensive. Now she felt bad. [i]How could I be so insensitive. With that, Rayna got off the roof and back to her room where she tried to call Jake. After the third denied call, she was done with the phone. But she wasn't done with Jake. She really didn't want to lose him, so she figured she could just drive over there. Grabbing her keys, she got back in her car, for another trip to Jake's.

Koby arrived at Jake's with Rose's hand in his. It felt nice, almost right. He knew their relationship was based on comfort and sex more or less, but it didn't change his mind about the way he felt about her. If this was the way they felt comfortable, they may as well should make it work. As Koby got out of the car, he quickly pulled Rose in for a kiss, something that felt more real than the last time, something special. Rose pulled away, a small frown on her face. Koby smiled sheepishly, grabbing her hand walking inside, not bothering with knocking.

"I'm in here!" Jake called as he heard his front door open and close. He was sitting in the lounge room, cans of drink splayed out everywhere, he was playing his video game. "Hey! Started with out us?" Koby laughed, smirking. Jake raised an eyebrow and saw Rose, "Hey," He greeted her, and she nodded a response. Koby and Rose sat down on the couch, Rose sitting in between Koby's legs. He would nibble her neck every now and then, or stroke up collar bone. Jake passed around a few drinks, he was already on his third, and handed Rose and Koby their first. Music was started up, quietly, a small discussion about random, drunken things among them.

Suddenly, a knock was heard at the front door.

Rayna stood there rubbing her arm as the door opened. She had noticed Koby's car when she arrived so she wasn't surprised when he opened the door. "Is Jake still here?" She said, knowing well he was still present. But she was being polite and didn't want to go in a room uninvited. Koby looked back to his friend who gave him a lazy wave. Rayna walked in and took off her shoes. She immediately noticed all the beers on the table. I hope he didn't drink all those.. But Rayna was wrong. She walked over where the game on the tv was paused. "I'm sorry. I was being over protective and jealous. Forgive me?" Jake gave a smile and pulled her onto his lap. She then laughed as he turned the game back on. "Don't start without me!" Koby roared playfully as he picked up his controller and snuggled back up with Rose. Rayna laughed whenever Koby got killed and kissed Jake's neck between respawning.

Koby sighed a good hour and a half later as he threw down the controller. "Fair game, my man, a draw as always. But this is getting boring. How about we give the girls a try?" Koby raised an eyebrow as he looked at Rose, pulling her in as she giggled, kissing her lips, a smile still on his face. "I don't know how to play!" Rose complained. Koby laughed, "That's fine," He said as he pulled her down into his lap, in front of the tv.

Jake had already given Rayna his controlled, a smirk plastered on his face, his eyes drooping slightly. He placed his hands high up Rayna's thighs, massaging them as she took control of the game. Rose glared at the tv screen, finding difficulty in aiming and even moving. Koby laughed, shaking his head every so often, stopping to nibble her neck. "It's hard enough playing, I don't need you kissing me!" Rose yelled, peeved. This amused Koby, and Jake laughed as he held Rayna by the waist, kissing around her neck and down her collar bone. But she didn't seem to be distracted.

Eventually Rose was beat by Rayna at the end of the match. Rose growled, a sulk on her face, "Again," She pleaded before Rayna sighed, smiling, picking up the controller. "I'll get this, I bet ya," She swore.

Multiple beers later, video games wasn't working so well. Both girls had given up, leaving the score in Rayna's favor. They were now all laying on the couch cuddling amongst each other. "Wanna relive the old high school days?" Jake laughed. Rayna wasn't sure whether this was a good idea but the influence of alcohol said it was. "How about spin the bottle?" Koby joked, but Rose was on it. She took one of the bottles and put in on the floor where she sat. They all shifted into a circle, "Let the game begin!" Jake announced. "And may the odds be ever in your favor!" Rayna added, making them all chuckle.

Koby sat down on the ground, Rose next to him and Jake on the other side. It was still early in the evening and still a lot more drinking to be done. Andrew slightly crossed his mind, but his thought stopped there as Rose spun the bottle. It landed on Rose. Koby laughed, squeezing her hand. Rose spun it again, seeing as it landed on her. It landed on Koby. "Aww," Jake smirked, "Just a warm up," Koby winked at Rayna then kissed Rose roughly.

Koby spun it this time, the bottle landing on Jake. "Woo!" He said, spinning the bottle. It slowed down, suspense filling the room until it stopped. On. Koby. "No," Jake said stubbornly, Koby's eyes widening. Rose started laughing, Rayna pushing Jake forward, "Who's idea was this!? Just do it!" She laughed. Koby was shaking his head backing away. But the girls weren't letting it go. Jake sighed, grunted before taking a long swig from his can, "C'mon, brother," Jake glared at Koby. Koby couldn't even look him in the eye. His face crumpled in disgust. "Ugh," They both quickly pecked each other on the lips before turning away and wiping their lips.

"Aw, c'mon! That's not a kiss! Make it real!" Rose laughed. "No, no we aren't playing this anymore," Jake sulked. "It's easy, baby!" Rayna laughed. Rose turned to face Rayna, her eyes wide, "Easy?" Rose giggled before putting her hands either side of Rayna's face, pulling her lips to her's, her tongue exploring and feeling Rayna's. Koby's jaw dropped, Jake's eyes widened in shock.

"You guys could keep doing that instead of spin the bottle..." Jake said lowly, he eyes still wide. Koby nodded, "Yeah, I don't mind..." Koby backed him up. Rose pulled away, smirking. "Your turn," She said to the boys who's facial expressions mirrored disgust. They shook their heads. "Either you do it, or we'll leave you two," Rose threatened, smiling. Koby groaned, knowing Rose would leave. He looked at his best friend that he was meant to kiss. "Fine, but say this to anyone, and you'll be murdered," He growled. Jake's eyes were wide, "Wait, what! No!" He yelled as Koby's lips crushed his for a split second, and they pulled back.

Koby sat away from Jake in silence, the girls clapping and congratulating the boys. Jake shook his head and spun the bottle. This time, it landed on Rayna. Koby looked at Rayna as the bottle spun again. And, just once more, it landed on Koby. He frowned, looking at his drunken buddy who didn't really seem to care. "Um," He said as she scooted over to him. She looked in her eyes, almost feeling the same things he felt the first time they really kissed, but there was no spark. He lent in, cupping her face with his hand, the feeling too natural, and moves too romantic and his lips brushed hers before melting into them. Even in his drunken state, he couldn't get use to the feel.

Koby pulled away too soon and smirked.

Rayna didn't care for the girl on girl kiss. She wasn't half bad. Maybe Rayna was the bad one. "Your turn," Rose said to the boys who's facial expressions mirrored disgust. It was cute, but Rayna didn't think they'd actually do it. Then they kissed and Rayna's jaw dropped. She started clapping and laughing hysterically. Then Jake spun the bottle and it landed on her. She smiled and kissed him. It wasn't super intimate, but it meant something. Then Koby spun the bottle, this time landing on Rayna. Her face immediately turned red. She really hadn't expected it to land on her, just praying it wouldn't get awkward. But it was a game. It was all a game. She scooted over to him as he cupped her face in his hands. Instantly she felt a connection. More than with Jake. But Koby pulled away way too soon for her liking and they both smiled, acting as if it was just a game. Rayna looked over at Jake who didn't seem upset, though she knew he was too drunk to care at this point. "Why don't we do something else?" Rayna suggested. A dirty smile played across Rose's lips, "Seven. Minutes. In. Heaven." She stopped between words, smiling at the group.

It wasn't long before the bottle was spun. Rayna spun and it landed on Jake. Thank god.. She thought. She knew being alone in a room with Koby was not good. That measly kiss had brought back so much, she was scared she might ruin her relationship with Jake. They went into the hall closet, which was surprisingly quite roomy. She leaned up against him as they began to make out. But something was off. Jake wasn't holding her hips or putting his hand in her hair. Or maybe Rayna was off. With Koby casually walking around in her head, she didn't feel right. *Knock Knock* Time was up, and not a minute too soon. They sat back down when Koby spun the bottle. No...No... Ugh... The end of the glass was pointed at her knee as they both slowly got up and went over to the closet. "Oh boy..." She sighed as the door closed.

Jake smiled deviously at Rose. The bottle spun again, Rayna ending up with Jake. For some reason he felt like he needed something new. Maybe it was the alcohol playing on his rebel side, but he wanted to be with Rose. The way she sat on her hip, he walked away and into the closet with Rayna. They made out, nothing special though. He just wasn't feeling anything. Once the minutes were up, Jake sat back down between his best friend and his girl. Koby spun the bottle and it pointed at Rayna. He laughed as he crawled closer to Rose who was already giving him looks. The door to the closet closed and Jake started moving his fingers up Rose's leg. Now they were both laughing, nothing was funny, just laughing. Then he felt her hand creeping up his leg. Jake leaned in and let the moment take over.

As Koby stood up, he immediately felt the tension, despite how much he'd already drunk. He opened the closet door, letting Rayna step in first before closing the door behind him and letting the darkness consume them.

"Rayna?" Koby said, exploring the darkness with his hands before finding her waist. This was his chance, his opportunity and he wasn't going to waste the chance. He hesitantly pulled her against his body, letting his hands explore the curve of her back again as he dipped his head to her face, trailing kisses from her cheek to her neck, to her collar bone and back up to find her lips. Koby kissed her softly, his hands cupping her face, then moving down her shoulders to her hands, holding them in his. His breathing was heavy, great regret filling him. His lips turned urgent, one hand placed at the back of her head, the kiss deepening. His breathing was heavier, pulling back and letting her go before even the time was up.

Koby walked backwards so his back was pressed up against the wall. His was glaring into the darkness, angry with himself and Rayna. Whether it was from the alcohol, or because it was real, he couldn't tell. But he could swear he still felt what he felt that first time.

"I'm sure they'll take their time in there...why don't you show me your room?" Rose purred, trailing a line from his lips right down to his crotch. With the room spinning, Jake took her hand as he stumbled up the stairs. He got to the door and gave Rose a slap on the butt as she walked in the room. He pulled her onto the bed as he nibbled on her ear and kissed her neck. He sucked on her neck and let his hands roam free all over. Yet he was still out of it. He tossed over, letting Rose on top, and run his hand through her hair. It didn't feel the same than when he was with Rayna. Her hair was softer and longer. Then he heard the door, Rose didn't stop. But Jake pushed her to the side to see Rayna, who had just dropped her beer on his floor.

"Rayna?" Koby said, and the game was on. He pulled her and they got close. She was reluctant at first but wasn't going to stop. She grabbed his shirt and twisted it with her hand. It felt good. Really good. Then he pulled away, and the time wasn't even up. She could kind of see his shadow move to the other side of the closet as he sat in silence. The time had passed, it had been 7 minutes but there was no knock. She could hear Koby's breathing. It was heavy and she didn't like it. She got a little closer as she stole a quick kiss on his neck. But he moved his head away and Rayna sighed, "Was it not just a second ago you were attacking me like a mad man?" Her voice was snarky and full of tension. Still, no response. "Common.." She trailed her finger up and down his arm, "It's seven minutes in heaven... Nothing leaves this closet..." She smirked as she pulled his face towards hers, giving him one last kiss. But he didn't kiss her back. No passion, no effort. "Fine." Rayna got up and stormed out of the closet.

She walked into the room where she thought Rose and Jake were waiting or passed out. But the bottles were on the ground and they weren't there. Then she heard a noise upstairs. A door closing? She grabbed another beer and started to slowly walk towards the stairs, taking each step with ease. She didn't want to fall on her face. As she walked down the hall, all the doors seemed to be open, except Jake's. Without hesitation she opened the door and there it was. Her worst nightmare. Even though she had done a few things tonight, this was not acceptable. She dropped her beer and saw Jake look at her. "Jake!?" She cried. Turning around, Rayna fled out of the house. Just as she walked out the door she ran into someone. She was now on the ground, a mess of a drunk. She could feel two hands lifting her and carry her over to a car. "It's okay... I'll get you home.." Said a familiar voice. As she was driven home she tried to stay awake but all was a blur. That was when she passed out.

It didn't take Rose long to figure out what had just happened, even through her drunken state she comprehended the situation just fine. She looked behind her where Rayna had stood, but her reaction was too slow. She flopped off of Jake, laying on her back. Jake was sitting up watching Rayna drop her beer glass and then leave his room, and once more, his house. He frowned, not quite sure on how to deal with the situation. But instead, he looked back at Rose who shrugged. Jake sat for a moment, pondering the events. Not much else could go wrong, and besides that, they were all too drunk to think rationally. Jake shrugged and laughed something cold, grabbing Rose hard around the waist and placing her on top of him, continuing from where they left off.

His mind became a mess, a muddle of pure insecurity and shattered glass, all covered by a gooey substance of confusion and alcohol. Jake started kissing Rose's neck, her quiet moans enticing him to pull her clothes off. His hands slowly made their way to much wanted destinations before his desires took over, and all he wanted was granted - Thank you, Alcohol!

Afterwards, Rose was laying on her side, her bare back against Jakes naked chest. She sighed in content, her eyes barely open. Jake was propped up on one elbow behind her, looking down at the blonde in his arms - just the wrong blonde. He couldn't feel it yet, but he knew he would. The guilt, the hurt, the pain. The regret. He could feel it bubbling inside of him, but he was in too much denial yet to feel it, too drunk to recognise the mistakes. He laughed again, for no particular reason. A knock was at his door. Jake frowned, "Hmeeahh?" He called to the door. A face that appeared to belong to Koby's popped out from behind the door. A mask of sheer disappointment consuming his features. He was shaking his head, his jaw dropped. Rose turned over to see what the disturbance was. She rolled her eyes once she saw Koby - it bothered her none, therefore it would bother Koby none.

But Koby knew what bothered him. The fact his friend had that nerve to do that to his girlfriend. "Where's Rayna?" Kobys' voice slurred, his eyes red and glassy from the consumed alcohol. Jake shrugged a smirk on his face. He got off his propped elbow and rolled over so he was holding Rose close against him. Koby practically growled before walking out of his room, slamming the door loudly behind him. "Ray- Rayna!" Koby called out, stumbling and half tripping down the hallway and down the stairs. He rubbed his tired, heavy eyes in attempt to see better. He searched the kitchen and lounge room, continuing to call out her name. Then, he remembered Andrew was still home.

Koby tripped back up the stairs, calling out to Andrew. "Andrew. Andrew buddy. Aye!" He called out, entering Andrew's unoccupied room. "Huh?" Koby grimaced. He knew that Andrew probably took Rayna home. He groaned, rubbing his forehead. He was too drunk to drive. "Fuck it." Koby threw his hands up in the air, stumbling back down the hallway and down the stairs to where he dropped his keys and mobile. It was only just one in the morning. Koby sighed deeply. "Shit" He rushed towards the door, flinging it open and running, half dragging his feet to his car. It took him a good five minutes before he could get his key in the ignition. "Fuck!" He yelled at the car, bashing the steering wheel. Concentrate, Koby, c'mon! Finally, he got the key in, a smile breaking across his face.

He slowly backed out of the drive way - well, what was considered slow for Koby anyway. He couldn't tell if he was keeping in his lane most of the time or not, but it didn't bother him any; there wasn't anybody out driving at this time anyway. As soon as he pulled up to the house, he saw Andrew walking out of the sorority. "Andrew?" Koby called out to him as he got out of his car. "Koby!" Andrew shouted at him. "You're drunk! How the hell did you get here?" He yelled. Koby smiled, laughing and shrugged. "Same way you got here." He said sarcastically, tripping up the stairs and landing on his hands, standing back up and walking into the sorority. Andrew stood wide eyed looking at the man who tripped up the stairs, wondering how on earth he made it alive to the place if he couldn't even walk up the stairs.

Koby didn't try to be quiet as he entered the castle. If anything, he made quite an entrance, calling out Rayna's name. "Rayna!" He blurted out into the darkness. He followed his instincts, which led him to her room. He cleared his throat and leaned on her bedroom door, knocking. "Rayna" - stops to clear his groggy voice - "Rayna, it's me, Koby" He said, trying to sound as sincere as possible. He already felt like he'd let her down, like he already wasn't there for her. He shut his eyes close tight. "Rayna? Please open the door? Rayna?" Silence. There was nothing. Was she ignoring him? "Look, Rayna, I'm sorry. I know I've messed up. I - I just don't know anymore, okay? Please," His voice was slurred and his eyes were closed tightly. He slumped his back on the door, falling to the ground, his legs splayed out on the floor. He knocked on her door again. "Rayna?" He said again.

"What?" Koby heard her say as she walked down the hallway from the bathroom. Koby opened his eyes looking up at her as she stood before him. Her eyes were red-rimmed, either from crying or from the alcohol, he couldn't tell. A smile broke on his face and he stood up. "I thought you were mad at me," He walked towards her, holding out his hand. She ignored it and crossed her arms across her chest instead. Immediately Koby frowned. "Uh, I thought I should have checked up on you, you know? I saw Jake...I kind of assumed you would have run off...don't blame you," Koby babbled. Rayna shook her head, her eyes were closed. She wasn't going to speak. "Can we talk?" Koby had no idea what he wanted to talk about. Was this his drunk side coming out. "It's one in the morning, Koby. Go home, I'm not up for this," She said simply, walking past him to her bedroom. "Wait!" He called, following her in, tripping on the way. He laughed at himself. "Please, hear me out," Koby pleaded. Rayna glared at him before sitting down on her bed.

Koby took a deep breath before continuing, "I fucked up again, I shouldn't have driven tonight, but I keep thinking of you. I hurt you again, I shouldn't lie tonight, so the next few words are true," Koby said, walking towards Rayna, sitting beside her. "I'm sorry," He said, shrugging. He looked at her, "I messed up again, I'm only human. But you and I know the way this will end...Never again, will I leave you high," Koby sighed, flopping backwards on the bed, lying down. "I'm sorry I'm not what you wanted, I could use some poor excuse, because the hardest thing to say is I'm sorry," Koby concluded. "I still care, Rayna," He whispered, turning his face to look up at her. She wasn't looking at him though. This actually hurt him. He frowned, remaining silent. His arms were behind his head as he lay down, a million thoughts flying through his head.

"I still care, Rayna," He whispered, turning his face to look up at her. But Rayna couldn't look at him. All his words were screaming in her head. I'm with Jake! Her own voice echoed in her head. She then peaked over at Koby, who was now laying on her bed. He looked so lost but yet like this was where he was supposed to be. Then Rayna laid back and put her head on his chest. She felt his breathing as she thought about Jake again. With Rose. Rayna put her arms around Koby as she took a deep breath in. She wanted to cry. Granted she was slightly more emotional than usual, she had a right to cry. She felt Koby rubbing his hand along her back and she clung tighter. "I...Forgive you.." She coughed the words up she'd been wanting to say since the second night during the storm. She felt his hand lift her chin as he kissed her forehead. Rayna smiled as she lightly kissed his neck. Koby was gentle with his lips as he returned the kisses. Rayna pushed him over as she got on top of him. Koby's eyes were bright as he pulled her face closer to him. His lips were full of passion and so were hers. The lust for him was being released as she slid her arms around his neck. Somehow Koby seemed to have propped himself up, letting Rayna wrap her legs around him. He leaned back and began to take off his shirt as she kissed his chest. Then, with Koby's help, her shirt was ripped off. Then she was hit with exhaustion. The adrenaline and fuel from the alcohol was finally wearing off. Pushing Koby back down, she gave a few more light kisses, trying to slow down. As she trickled her fingers down his chest she could feel her eye lids becoming very heavy.

As Koby's back was flat on the bed again, he reached up to cup Rayna's face, kissing her again, more passionately than the last time, his tongue dancing with hers. His hands trailed down her back, then back up to her neck and down to her breasts that he massaged through her bra. He pulled away from her for a moment, seeing her eyes fluttering to stay open, to stay awake. He then moved his hands down to her waist, pulling her down against him, letting her head rest on his chest. He was still wide awake, much more aroused than drunk too. One of his hands went through her hair, tickling her shoulder, then arm, to her waist and up again to repeat. She was warm, and the small electricity between them was unnoticeable from the amount of alcohol.

With Rayna being so close to him, Koby could feel the tension and excitement. He knew exactly what he wanted, but he knew that now was not the right time. He pulled her over his chest so her body was laying comfortably over him and he could easily give her back a tickle. He knew it would be daylight soon, and he could feel the exhaustion starting in his eyes and in his sluggish movements. He lifted his head a little to look at Rayna's face, her eyes were closed. "I love you..." Koby whispered before he fell asleep with Rayna on top of him.

Rayna woke up in a haze. She remembered last night as a blur. But she wouldn't forget that she was mad at Jake and not mad at Koby. Rayna's breathing was slow as she clutched the body which she was still laying over. She kissed his chest as she rolled over and off of him. He was passed out. She even tried nibbling his ear, but he just rolled over, giving her his back. As she rested her chin on his shoulder, she let her fingers roll along his back. "Morning" Rayna said smiling. Koby mumbled something but she didn't catch it. "I'm gonna go make some breakfast, k babe?" Quickly shuffling out of bed she put on a sweatshirt and changed into some shorts. As she rushed down the stairs she almost ran into Mrs. James who was collecting the laundry. "Sorry!" She called out as she made her way to the kitchen. She got out some eggs and started to fry them. Mrs. James kept checking in, to make sure she didn't burn the house down. But Rayna was a pretty good cook. When she was on her own she used to go to soup kitchens and eat. Then after a few months she offered to help cook, because let's face it, the food was gross. "Mrs. James can you finish cooking this? I'll be back!" Skipping down the hall, Rayna made her way back to the room where Koby had spent the night. She opened the door slowly, making it creak. He turned his head towards her, checking out the noise. "Hey, how'd you sleep?" She smiled walking over and sitting on the bed.

"Hey, how'd you sleep?" Koby heard Rayna asked, a smile in her voice. He raised an eye brow as he rolled over to face her, a goofy, tired smile on his face. "Much better than usual," he said, his voice like velvet. He pulled Rayna's arm, pulling her into the soft bed with him, and tickled her as he let her climb on top of his stomach. He laughed, then let out a sigh. "Do I smell egg?" Koby frowned and Rayna nodded in response, a smile still on her face. He pulled her face down to his, planting a little kiss on her lips before letting her sit back up on top of him again. He was still bare-chested, and liked how it felt when Rayna trailed her fingers up and down him. He was looking up at her, with analytical eyes. "Why are you cooking?" Koby said, a smirk on his face. "Well -" Rayna began but Koby cut her off with small kisses, managing to sit up. He gingerly left a hand by her face, almost cupping it as he slowly kissed her. "It's better sober..." He murmured against her lips, opening his mouth a little to taste her. "Hmm, definitely better," He let is other hand pull her closer to him, having a firm grasp around her waist. He pulled back with a content sigh, staring into her eyes.

It was the cutesy relationship she had always wanted. His lips against hers, the sparks she felt inside, was perfect. "Hmm, definitely better," Both pulling back, Rayna had nice shade of blush across her face as she giggled. "Breakfast is probably ready by now, don't want the food to get cold" She smiled as she felt his fingers climbing up her back. "But I'm in the middle of dessert" He winked as he stole a quick kiss. She leaned closer as they ended up laying down again, kissing with passion. Rolling over, now she was pinned down with Koby holding her wrists. "The food.." She started to say but Koby interrupted, "can wait," She smiled, letting him kiss her neck as she tried not to squirm. Then they both heard a knock at the door. It didn't seem to phase Koby but Rayna, using all her might, pushed Koby off of her. "I gotta get that, meet me at the table?" She rushed off, making her way to the door right before the second set of knocking. As Rayna opened the door, there seemed to be Rose and Jake. "Sorry, this isn't a whore house." Rayna said with anger. She would never forgive her after this. I even began to think Rose wasn't half bad.. She thought as she reluctantly let them in. "I'm sorry.." Jake said as he looked at his feet. [b]"You can't even look me in the eye?"[b] Rayna stormed off into the kitchen.

Koby let Rayna get out from underneath him, smacking her butt on the way out of the room. She was already at the door by the time he was at the stairs, pulling a shirt back on. Rose and Jake were standing in the doorway. Koby glared at the two who stood there, half a million thoughts flying through his mind before he even reached the second step. "I'm sorry," Koby heard Jake say. "You can't even look me in the eye?" Rayna replied. Koby watched as Rayna stormed towards the kitchen, leaving the front door open for Rose to walk up the stairs. "Hm, hey baby," Rose said as she started to pass Koby, placing a kiss on his cheek. He winced a little but kissed her on the cheek back, letting her pass. But as soon as both girls were out of sight, he stormed down the stairs towards Jake, anger pulsing through his veins. "You hurt her," Koby spat out at Jake. Jake shook his head that hung low, "Man, you don't even understand," Jake countered, finally looking up at his best mate. Koby shook his head, his face grimacing at the thought of the sleeze before him, sleeping next to Rayna. "Do you even realise how much you mean to her?" Koby struggled to control his voice as he critisized his friend. "Hah! Are you serious? She came to me, after you fucked up man," Jake smirked, crossing his arms over his chest. Koby's eyes narrowed, his whole body tensing. "You really want to go there, brother? Well, who did she come to when you failed her, again, last night? Hm?" Koby challenged, a smirk covering his face, and Jake's eyes widening. "And who held her, and comforted her, who kissed her when her...boyfriend wasn't there for her?" Koby was standing too close to Jake that they were breathing on each other, their voices low and controlled, challenging each others strengths. "And slept, with the local whore..." Koby shook his head. Jake's heart was racing, his thoughts stumped and words lost. He stood with his mouth gaped open, a frown on his face. "Leave." Koby growled at his friend, shoving him out of the door way.

Koby closed the door as Jake left speechless, probably too ashamed to face Rayna yet. Koby looked up the stairs, and saw that Rose's door was closed. He walked to the kitchen in search of Rayna. He found her curled over her breakfast, her hands in her face. "He left," He said calmly, standing awkwardly in the entrance of the kitchen. "I should go too," He stated, You're not really mine... he wanted to say so badly.

Rayna put her face in her hands as she controlled her tears. She felt like there was a waterfall about to happen. she heard her plate being placed in front of her by Mrs. James. "Thanks" She mumbled. Then she heard footsteps, "He left," Koby said calmly, she was still uneasy and just wanted to be held. "I should go too," He stated, but Rayna looked up and grabbed his arm. "Please don't?" She had nervousness and worry in her eyes as she clutched onto his hand. But he flicked her away. "Bye.." He said as he turned towards the door. Rayna was now pissed. First her man-whore boyfriend, which if he hadn't figured out by now, was her ex-man-whore boyfriend. "After last night? This morning? You're leaving?" She crossed her arms, hoping he'd just turn around and kiss her.
