Bug

Raven hummed softly as she stepped under the spray of warm water that shot from the showerhead. Sighing happily she tilted her head back so the water could splash over her face and neck. Today was looking to be pretty good, only two classes today and she was meeting with some old friends she hadn't seen in ages. Lathering shampoo into her hair, she closed her eyes and let herself slip away…

A soft tickling sensation was one her foot, and she twitched it slightly without opening her eyes. The sensation did not go away. Raven huffed and proceeded to glare down at her foot, when she saw the problem. A bug. Not just any bug, a three-inch long bug. A three-inch long, red bug. A three-inch long red bug, with lots of long legs and two tendrils sticking out the back that looked suspiciously like stingers. The bug was starting to crawl onto her foot. Though it was only a split second, Raven stared as the bug began to haul itself up and onto her leg… and then she lost it. Leaping out of the shower, grabbing a towel as she flew past it, opening the door and then slamming it shut with a bang. Raven stood panting and shivering, soap still in her hair and a towel wrapped loosely around her body. She whimpered and glanced toward her roommate's bedroom, wondering if he was up, which was unlikely seeing the time… besides, he was probably with his girlfriend, she didn't want to disturb anything between them. Padding softly over to the phone, she picked up the receiver and quickly dialed in a number.

One ring, two rings, three rin- "lo'?" A sleepy voice drawled over the line.

"Garfield?" Raven asked softly.

"Aw, Raven its you, what's up?" He slurred sleepily, a smile could be heard in his voice.

Raven took a deep breath and then spoke. "IwastakingashowerandthentherewasthisbuganditwascrawlingontomylegandnowI'mwetandthere'sstillshampooinmyhairandIreallywanttofinishmyshowerbutcan'tand-"

"Raven, did you mix up coffee with your tea again, because you know what caffeine does to you…" She heard him shiver.

"Gar, please?" She pleaded. "Richard's still asleep and I know Kori's there, I don't want to bother them."

"But you find it okay to call and wake me up," He teased her gently. "Alright, I'll be right over." A few moments later, a soft knock at the door alerted Raven to Garfield's presence. As she opened the door he grinned. "Shower interrupted, Rae?"

"Very funny." She let her friend in, who proceeded to the bathroom. A minute later, the toilet could be heard flushing and Garfield stepped out.

"It was a long hard battle, but I succeeded in the end." He struck a heroic pose, but shrunk at her cold gaze. "Anywho, your shower awaits princess." Raven smiled at him in thanks and returned to her shower.

OoooO

Raven stepped out of her room dressed in a dark turtleneck and jeans. Garfield was currently making himself a pot of coffee, and placed a cup of tea on the table in front of her. "Here you go Sunshine."

Raven wordlessly excepted the cup. Garfield grinned and returned to staring intently at the coffee maker, willing it to go quicker. From behind, he felt a pair of arms wrap around him and a soft sigh could be heard. "Thank you Gar."
