Lots of totally random, totally unconnected Maddison oneshots, drabbles and little musings.

You Never Knew

He used to watch her before she even knew his name. She sat at the front of Organic Chemistry with Eleanor Rivers and kept her bespectacled head down in the anatomy textbook. Her hand would be the first in the air to answer every question, seconded quickly by Derek. He would listen to her voice, rolling so easily off her tongue, as she answered everything: correctly. He watched Derek stiffen every time she usurped his position as the cleverest with a wild grin on his face.

She was at a party a couple of months into their first semester. She was sat with another girl, one with long, black, witchy hair, and with a couple of boys, blonde, muscular boys. He was talking to some girl, a little blonde with big brown eyes who he had picked out from the whole room as one who he would be able to get into bed later. But the flash of red every time she turned her head distracted him.

"Mark?" the girl asked, clinging onto his arm and smiling, "Are you ok?"

He tore his eyes away from her. He looked at his potential conquest of the evening and realised her name had evaded him.

"I...I don't feel well." he said, "I'm going to go and take a break."

And with that, he walked away, leaving the girl - Sofia, maybe? Sara? - to sink into a chair by herself, all hopes of getting laid evaporating. He kept his eyes trained on Addison as he walked to the door, and then stood outside for a while, taking deep breaths and wondering what had happened to him. He'd never even spoken to the chick from Organic Chemistry.

He realised with a jolt that this was the first time he had ever walked away from potential sex.

Something was very wrong.

Well, it's just a little stand alone thing, but I'm going to post lots more under this story, all Maddison romance, angst or whatever, some angsty, some one-sided, and some FLUFFY!
