Casey's POV

Casey had grown accustomed to her new college life. Her room mate was more than she could ask for, her grades were still the same and her boyfriend was absolutely amazing. She was a little uneasy about how things would work out at first. You see she has a Mormon room mate, and she thought she was going to be dragged into...well a Cult. Man, was she proven wrong. Kaylie was sweet, out-going, and she was true to her faith but it surprised Cassie that she was just a regular college student like herself. Then there was Shawn, her boyfriend. He was sweet, romantic, and a gentlemen and everything was perfect in Cassie's eyes, until came along Derek Venturi.

You see it was like any other day, she was at the Library getting some books for her new research paper that was due in two weeks and she wanted a head start. Of course this was the one day Kaylie could not come with her, and she had been alone walking up and down the isles of books. After finding the books she needed she eagerly opened one and headed to the front desk until BAM! Ran smack into maybe one of the most attractive guys she had ever laid eyes on. All her books fell with a loud thud as she apologized profusely to the stranger in front of her.

" Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry! I didn't see you." Her cheeks went red. Wow, he's hot!

" Oh, here let me help you with that." He gathered the rest of her books in his arms. Mmm.. he's muscular too.

" Really I am so sorry. I can be such a klutz sometimes." She stood up as he did.

" Don't worry about it. Here let me help you to the front desk." And sweet!!

" Thank you so much but you don't have to do that." She tried to take her books from him.

" No come on, I can do this." He started to the other side of the Library and set the books down.

" Thanks again, I'm Casey." She held out her hand, panting slightly.

" I'm Derek. It was nice metting you." He gave her a smile and left her there. Her mouth open. Wait.. the was...oh my gosh... I have to tell Kaylie!

She checked out her books and ran back to her apartment and anxiously waited for Kaylie to return to tell her about Derek. Then later that night she found two books in her stack that didn't belong to her.

--------------------------------------------Derek's POV----------------------------------------------------------------

He felt like he had matured since high school. Now he cared about his grades, and he cared about his future. Of course he wouldn't have two years ago, but now he worried about the future. No that he was in college he had it made, a full hockey scholarship and he studied film. His room mate was awesome, and well then girls just kept coming, just like high school. In his eyes, Derek thought things couldn't get any better, until he met her. When he met the love of his life, Casey McDonald.

You see, he was in the Library. Oh yes, the all mighty Derek Venturi was in a Library, and he was getting a couple of books for this paper. After checking them out he ran into a few of his hockey buddies and their girls. There he was minding his own business, laughing away until he felt something run into his back... really hard he would add. Just as he was going to yell at this person who ran into him he saw exactly who it was. He couldn't help but stare at her, to him she was gorgeous... in that Keener kind of way.

" Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry! I didn't see you." Her cheeks went red and he smirked at her.

" Oh, here let me help you with that." He gathered the rest of her books in his arms. What am I doing??!! I don't do this kind of thing!!

" Really I am so sorry. I can be such a klutz sometimes." She stood up as he did and he like how her curls bounced.

" Don't worry about it. Here let me help you to the front desk." Really??! Someone pinch me!

" Thank you so much but you don't have to do that." She tried to take her books from him.

" No come on, I can do this." He started to the other side of the Library and set the books down.

I can't help it.. she's just...ugh.. I don't even know.

" Thanks again, I'm Casey." She held out her hand, panting slightly.

" I'm Derek. It was nice meeting you." He gave her a smile and left her there. Her mouth open.

He couldn't help but smirk as he walked away from her. As he walked into his apartment later she was still going through his mind, even during his date that night. I can't wait to tell Dean about her.

And when he got back, he told his roomate about this cute girl who ran into him at the Library.
