I know this is my first entry ever since the time I moved. Well, I've been trying to keep up and adjust to the norms here.
Tomorrow is my fourth day of university. I had never thought that I would be able to bear with it soo smoothly. Daniel and his friends have been keeping me company and have become is a good distraction for me.
They are great and I think I kind of like being around them. Today, they are going to throw a party to celebrate one of their friends coming back. I've decided to go to this party.
I know it would be my first party after 15 months. I am super nervous. I just hope I will be able to keep up my act.
Also, I think I am kinda liking this Daniel guy. He is super caring and attentive towards everyone. I like how he carries himself and would always find a way to take me out of my awkward situations.
After writing the entry in my diary, I stood up from my chair on the balcony to pick up the top I had left there to dry, and also to close the window, while I go to sleep now.
My balcony was west-facing, which meant towards the forest and thus, I have taken a liking to sit there and write.
Feeling a creep, as if someone was watching me, I looked back towards the forest, but the large and dense trees paired with darkness didn't allow me to see much further.
Maybe it was one of the hallucinations again. I'll have to stop Marla from telling me those weird stories.
Like the previous three days, I walked to the university.
Marla did try her best to talk me out of it and offer me her car, but I politely declined. Even Daniel and his friends had asked me numerous times to join them, but I think I am good at this.
Reaching the front of the university I saw a crowd forming around Daniel's friends. Deciding against the fact that it wasn't probably the best time to greet them, I started to move inside the university, when my idea was busted by Matt.
"Hey! Victoria! Over here!" He yelled while waving at me, and everyone turned to look towards me.
Smiling awkwardly, I started to move towards them.
Soon I saw everyone bidding their good-byes and leaving for their classes, apart from Daniel's group.
Reaching them, I think I saw the most handsome man in the world. Well, it appeared to me, momentarily.
Even though only his side profile and half of the face were visible, I could say that he was extremely handsome.
He was few inches taller than me and I almost had a nosebleed then and there.
Scrunching my eyes and nose at this weird feeling, I crossed my hands in defense, to control my thoughts and emotions.
As if sensing something, he stopped what he was doing and suddenly turned around to look towards me.
Caught in the act of sneaking glances, I stood there frozen for good seconds when my savior finally came to my aid.
"Alexander, this is Victoria I had told you about her. And Victoria this is the main member a.k.a head of our group, Alexander."
I nodded at him in the introduction and after giving a brief smile to Daniel and others, I left for the class. Though the guy was handsome and all, his stern gaze was creeping the hell out of me.
He looked like if he got a chance he would probably eat me alive. Was he thinking of murdering me?
"Hey! Wait up! We are also coming." Daniel and Aiden said as they both placed their hands on my shoulders.
"You guys are soo heavy. Get off of me." I mumbled.
"Hehe….yes we are. And you'll have to bear with it." Aiden said cheekily.
I don't know why I was having this constant feeling of someone staring at me and thus, I looked back but found no one.
Three lectures went in a blur, with me only thinking about that mysterious guy Alexander. Yes, he's been constantly on my mind since morning.
I get it, that he is handsome and all that stuff, but I was feeling weird with this newfound sensation of mine.
I don't know why I was feeling a strange sense of attraction towards him. I mean I have seen plenty of good men, but I never felt like this for anyone, not even for my favorite actor.
Spotting the empty chair beside Aiden and the creepy attractive Alexander not there, I heaved a sigh of relief before sitting beside him.
"Hey? You look zoned out today. Anything I can help you with? Are you thinking about today's party? Don't worry about it, you don't have to stress about it. We'll just gather around chat and have a little bit of fun, nothing overboard." Aiden said leaning closer to me.
I smiled at him genuinely before standing to excuse myself.
"Hey guys, I am gonna go and order myself something, do you guys want anything?" I asked.
"I'll go with you." Daniel immediately stood and his friends started whistling at this.
I know what they were implicating and I don't know why but I involuntarily blushed at that.
"Umm..okay," I said.
Before we could start moving, someone grabbed my hand and I felt electric shocks run down me. It felt like I was electrocuted for a good 2 seconds. But it felt soo good.
I looked up and saw none other than my new creepy attractive crush Alexander.
"I've got a few things to order too. Let's go." He said, not gazing into my eyes.
I nodded briefly before moving towards the counter, which was almost on the other side.
'Why am I letting someone else decide my emotions for me?' I thought of getting angry at my behavior before ordering two chocolate shakes with chocolate chips and two cheese sandwiches.
My tummy needs to be feed because he was upset that I let someone get better of me.
I took my things to an empty table because my seat on Daniel's table was occupied and I guess Daniel's too because he immediately sat on my left.
I looked at his order and I was truly amazed. There were 3 burgers, one medium-sized pizza, 2 overloaded pieces of cheese sandwiches, a banana shake, and a bowl full of noodles.
"You sure you can eat all of it? I mean I can accompany you if you can't." I said laughing at the end.
"No problem. Take whatever you want." He said before tugging my loose hair behind my ear.
I know my ears turned a bit red at this because I was feeling extremely warm.
Before I can react to it, Alexander came and sat beside me.
I looked at him questioningly.
"My seat over there is occupied." He stated the obvious in his velvety smooth voice.
Sensing my gaze at him, he turned towards me before smiling cutely.
I so wanted to pinch his cheeks or maybe bite them and suck them.
I shook my head shocked at the kind of thoughts I was having for a person I just met.
'Geez, Vic! What is wrong with you?' I wanted to shout at myself.
"So today's party, is it for you?" I started not liking the awkwardness.
"I am having a party? How come I don't know of it?" Alexander said looking at Daniel now.
Oops! Did I just spoil their surprise plan? I looked at Daniel apologetically.
"Alpha, I mean Alex, you know we wanted to have some fun and you coming back is just right for that purpose and thus we are celebrating." He said as a matter of fact, before smiling at me comfortingly.
"Will you come?" Alexander then asked me, his full attention on me now.
"I...I am thinking about it." I said not knowing where my confidence left.
"She'll come. I'll make her." Daniel said pinching my cheeks, before winking at me.
And I don't know if it was just me or what but I think I heard a loud growl coming from somewhere near me.
I almost spilled my chocolate shake at myself.
When I looked up after cleaning my mess, I saw both Daniel's and Alexander's seats empty.
I looked at their almost empty plates, and then I looked towards my plate that contained a slice of pizza and some noodles.
'Must be Daniel's doing.' I thought before digging in my food.
