How It Works

Chapter One: The Arrival

Disclaimer: I do not own Dramacon, or anything like that, but I wish I did. Oh how I wish....

Alright, so this is my first Dramacon story. Hope everyone likes it. I'm going to try and update soon, but I think if all the little boys and girls believe hard enough it will happen! Just kidding, but reviews do make updates happen sooner. The pandas told me so. Anyways, enjoy!


Christie couldn't wait for the next few weeks to just fly by so she could see Matt again. 'I'll come visit you' he had told her. Now it had been a week into classes and she was already daydreaming. A Sophomore in college and she already had a college boyfriend. She told her roommates when he would be staying and asked if they could find another place to sleep for a night. They agreed pretty quickly since they had heard the whole story about him. She was so excited and drifted further into her daydream.

Matt would be there in the early afternoon, so she would go meet him at the middle of campus near the admissions building. They would walk to her dorm and sign him in. She would of course giggle when he wrote that he was staying the night. They would trod up to her room, her trying to take some of his things and him not letting her. They would sit down on the bed, holding hands, until Matt leaned in and placed a kiss on her lips. She'd lock her arms around his neck and-

"Excuse me, but do you have the answer?" said the professor. Christie looked up at her teacher. She had completely forgotten she was in math and was supposed to be learning logarithms. She looked up at the board and saw the only unanswered problem. Quickly, she figured out the answer in her head and blurted it out.

"Very good. Try not to drift off too much. I know you're good at this, but you still need to know it." Christie nodded and scribbled down the rest of the problems and answers. "That's all for today class." Everyone began packing their things and leaving. Christie packed slowly, still lost in her thoughts. She couldn't stop thinking about Matt.

She left in a daze, wandering over to the dining hall to pick up some dinner. She shoved some food into her mouth and hands, and went back to her dorm. It would only be a little bit longer until she could see Matt.

A few weeks later…

"Matt," Christie yelled from across the courtyard. She ran up and jumped to hug him. He caught her easily and spun her around. When they had spun a few times he placed her on the ground again and placed a light kiss on her lips.

"Hey. I missed you," he said.

"I missed you too," said Christie. "Want some help with your bags?" He gave her a questioning look.

"Are you saying I can't carry them all?" She shook her head violently, making her hair swing back and forth.

"No, no! I was just trying to help, cause they look heavy. I don't mean to-"

"Ahaha. It's alright. I was just kidding, but no I don't need any help. I'm a man," Matt said and swelled his chest giving her a big cheesy grin. Christie rolled her eyes.

"Ah yes. A man. I heard they went extinct."

They walked to her building and she swiped her card to get in the building. The girl waiting at the desk asked him to sign in and to remember not to leave without Christie, otherwise he wouldn't be able to get back in the building.

"Don't have to worry about that. I'm going to stay by her side the whole time." The girl at the desk just laughed, while Christie turned a bright shade of red. They walked up the many flights of stairs to her floor and got to her dorm.

"So this is my abode," she said as she opened the door with one swift motion. Matt was surprised to see it clean, and she could tell by his expression just what he was thinking.

"Yes, I do keep my room clean. My roommates like it that way, so I help out and do my part." He shrugged his shoulders and sauntered into the room, placing his bags next to the couch in the living area. "So this is our hangout place, or what have you. Um… to the right is the kitchen and two of my roommates rooms. Then, over to the left is my room." She walked over to the closed door. "Wanna check it out?" she asked with a hint of something in her voice. Matt nodded. He had been waiting for this. To finally be with Christie, but not only that, to be alone with her. To get to just be with her. He couldn't wait.
