I'm sorry that I only updated today my internet has been acting up. So I'm finally back at varsity and it has been a hectic week but at least I can finally update this story. So here is the next chapter, hope you enjoy it.
Disclaimer: I don't own The Covenant, storyline or characters. I only own Elena, Cassie and Connor.
I was sleeping so peacefully but then I heard a voice pulling me out of my dream. "Elena, wake up." I ignored the voice and I felt something hit my head. I abruptly opened my eyes and found Cassie standing over my bed. She threw a pillow at my head. "Aw seriously Cassie, I'm sleeping. It's still early in the morning" I whined. I covered my head with the duvet. I am not a morning person. "Uh Elena it's 1pm." I uncovered my head and looked at her in disbelief. I checked the clock next to my bed and saw she was telling the truth. I groaned. "Well it looks like I should get up then," I laughed. I climbed out of my bed. "By the way is there a store where I can buy some supplies nearby?" I asked. "Yeah, I'm actually on my way there if you want a lift." She replied. "Ok, give me 20 minutes." Thank goodness. "Sure" she smiled. I could tell she was amused by me. I tested my foot and it felt much better but I decided to visit the nurse later, just in case.
I rushed out of my dorm with my towel over my arm and realised I didn't know where the showers were. I stopped abruptly and turned back to my dorm, and poked my head in. "Cassie, where are the showers?" I half shouted. "When you are out of the dorm, turn left then go down the corridor and turn left again." She giggled. "Thank you." I called over my shoulder and rushed out again closing the door behind me. As I turned my head back to the front, I collided into someone and we bumped heads. I groaned and my hand immediately went straight to my head. This is so not my day. I closed my eyes for a second and waited for the throbbing to stop. I opened my eyes. In front of me was a tall guy with blonde hair and blue eyes. It was like staring into the ocean. He is really cute. He was wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt with a hoodie. He wore a smirk on his face. "Sorry, I didn't look where I was going." I said. "It's cool. I don't mind bumping into a pretty girl like you." I just woke up and now I'm getting hit on. I couldn't keep the blush from appearing on my face. He was surveying me in my large t-shirt. He looked me up and down and I felt a little embarrassed by his scrutiny. "I've never seen you before, you must be new here. I'm Reid…Reid Garwin." He smirked at me. So this was the infamous Reid, good to know. "Elena Roberts. Nice to meet you." I saw a flicker of emotion that I didn't recognise but then he returned to his smug demeanour. "Same here." He replied. "I have to go, I'll see you around." I said, smiling. "See you." He replied and I walked quickly to the showers.
After I got out of the shower, I wrapped my towel around myself and went back to my dorm. When I got inside, I saw that Cassie was in the bathroom. I opened my suitcase and took out my underwear, denim shorts, tank top and black pumps. I put on my clothes and towel dried my hair. "So I met Reid." I heard Cassie stop brushing her teeth and she came out of the bathroom. "Really" she asked. She looked a little guilty. "Yeah outside the dorm. Why do you look so guilty?" I narrowed my eyes. "He came to visit me." She smiled and she marched back in the bathroom to finish brushing her teeth. "And?" I enquired. "He asked me out." she confessed. "What did you say?" I giggled. "I told him that I'll think about it." I could just imagine his reaction "You go girl; you're trying to play hard to get. What did he say?" she walked out of the bathroom and smiled. "Exactly, he was surprised and he said I would say yes eventually." I smirked. "I've got to say knowing you less than 24 hours, you are awesome." I said and she grinned at my comment.
I went into the bathroom after her and brushed my teeth. I realised I hadn't put on my locket. I went to the smaller suitcase that my mom had packed for me and took out my jewellery box. Inside was my silver locket that Connor gave to me. The locket was heart-shaped and had a beautiful design on top. I opened the locket and there was a small picture of my mom, dad, brother and me. I felt a little sadness tug at my heart. The other side was empty since I hadn't found anyone special to put in its place. "Earth to Elena." I blinked and I snapped back to reality. "Sorry." I said. "Is that your parents and your brother?" She asked over my shoulder. "Yeah" I said. I closed the locket. I took the necklace and put it over my head since the chain was long enough. "Ready to go" she asked. "Absolutely." I took my bag, plastered a smile on my face and we walked out. "Oh here's your dorm key." She said. "Thanks." I put it in my bag.
We got to the parking lot and we went over to her car. "This is your car! A blue Ford GT, I've wanted one since I was 12" I gasped. "Yeah." She said indifferently. "I hate you so much right now." I teased. "Haha I know." She smiled. We drove out of the parking lot. "So what happened with Tyler last night?" she asked. I told her everything. Well almost everything. I felt like I owed it to Tyler to not say anything about his eyes and my curiosity for what happened. Cassie was shocked to say the least. "Wow it sounds like you two had an adventure." She laughed but I think more out of shock than anything else. "Do you like him?" she asked. "Yes, I think I had more fun with him in one night than I had with my ex-boyfriend for the length of our relationship." I confessed blushing. "What about you, do you like Garwin?" I asked. "Yeah he's cute and funny but I don't think he is a relationship type of guy." She said. "Maybe you can be the one to change that." I said with a wicked glint in my eye. "Oh no, I know that look I've seen it before. You have a plan in mind, don't you?" she said and I smiled. "Yep but we can talk about it later." We parked by the store and got out.
The store was small but it had everything I needed. Cassie took a little longer than me. I paid for my things and told Cassie that I was going to explore. There was a gas station, the convenience store and few other shops. I went into the cute clothing store and started trying things on. I checked my watch and saw that I had been gone for 20 minutes. Crap. I walked quickly out of the store and went back to the convenience store. I saw Cassie from a distance and I noticed she wasn't alone. She was with Reid. I smiled. He really was trying to get Cassie's attention. I continued walking but something else caught my attention. A Hummer was parked in one of the parking spaces. Tyler's Hummer. I immediately felt chills run down my spine and I got excited. I didn't see him anywhere in sight which kind of disappointed me. I finally reached Reid and Cassie. "Hi Reid" I said brightly. "Oh it's t-shirt girl, Elena right" I nodded. "I suppose I've been called worse." I laughed.
Cassie caught my attention. "Where were you? I was worried" she asked. "Sorry, I lost track of time. I went to…" I stopped mid-sentence as Tyler walked out of the store. "…the clothing store." I said. I was really happy to see him but I made sure that it wasn't that obvious that I was. "Hey Elena" he grinned. "Hi Tyler" I said. I noticed out of the corner of my eye that Cassie was shooting glances at me and she was smiling. "Hi Cassie." He said. "Hey Tyler." She replied. She whispered "See you later." to me. She got Reid's attention and she walked down the street with him. I smiled at her. I so owe her when we get back to our dorm.
"How's your leg and did you get it checked out?" he asked as concern reached his face. "All better and no." I smiled. "Maybe I should drag you to the nurse's office." He said. "You wouldn't dare." I challenged. He had a naughty look in his eyes. I felt my knees go a little weak. I slowly backed away from him. He came towards me and lifted me off the ground. "Hey put me down!" I was in his arms and I felt like a baby. He ignored me. "Seriously Tyler, put me down." He looked down into my eyes and smirked. "No I'm taking you there." He said. His tone told me that I shouldn't argue with him but where is the fun in that. "What about Cassie? I can't just leave her." He took out his phone and typed in a number. "Reid, I'm taking Elena back to the school. Can you get a ride with Cassie?" he asked. He listened for a second and then put his phone away and he grinned. I rolled my eyes but couldn't help smiling. He narrowed his eyes at me and carried me to his Hummer. I laughed at his expression. "I like it when you laugh, it's cute." He said, while his eyes softened. I blushed and looked up at him. He smirked. I have got to learn to stop blushing at every comment he makes. I mentally scolded myself.
He put me in the car and hopped in on the other side. We drove off. "So what were you doing at the store?" I asked. "Just getting some supplies for my room and you?" he replied. "Same" I said. His car was quite comfy and I could feel myself relax. I looked over at him and he seemed happy. I could see that he enjoyed driving his car. Boys and their toys. I silently giggled. "Are you ready for your first day tomorrow?" he asked. "Yeah, can't wait to see what Spenser throws at me." That reminded me, I need to grab my schedule and whatever else from the office. The trip back was much shorter. He parked the car and I hopped out. He got out and I could see that naughty grin was back. "No way, you are not picking me up again." I protested. "We'll see about that." He said. I started to run. I reached the stairs and I ran up them, and got to the door but as I was about to open it I felt a pair of hands wrap around my waist. I giggled. He whispered in my ear "Got you." He spun me around to face him and I looked into his eyes. I was breathless. My heart rate accelerated and I wanted to kiss him. He looked down at my lips and then back to my eyes. His eyes travelled down until they stopped at my locket. "I like your locket." He said. I couldn't help but feel the disappointment that rushed over me. "Thanks." I smiled.
So she wanted me to catch her. Well that was fine with me. This is going to be easy, she was far ahead but I could catch up. I ran and watched as she made her way up the staircase to the door. It's fun to chase her. As she reached the door, I was right behind. I slid my arms around her waist as she giggled. "Got you." I whispered in her ear.
I inhaled, she smells good. I spun her around and I looked into her eyes. Her green eyes held warmth and amusement. Her dark brown hair was blowing in the wind. I looked down from her eyes to her lips. I could imagine her lips on mine. She seemed to notice this and I brought my eyes back to hers. I looked down and noticed a silver locket around her neck. I wonder whose pictures are inside, probably her boyfriend.
"I like your locket." I said. She looked disappointed. Did she want me to kiss her? "Thanks" she smiled. It didn't look genuine. "Do you mind if I open it?" I asked. Why was I so curious? "Sure" she said. As I opened the locket, there was a small picture of her parents, brother and herself but there was an empty space on the other side. "So why isn't there a picture of your boyfriend in here?" I asked interestedly. "I don't have one." That shocked me a little but I felt more happiness than shock.
He thought I was taken. "So Mr Son of Ipswich, don't you have a girlfriend?" He looked surprised that I knew the name but he smiled. "No I don't." I smiled and let the excitement fill me up. "Ok, let's go inside." I opened the door and walked in. He came in behind me and threw me over his shoulder so my head was facing his back. "I give up." I said. He chuckled as he started walking. "Good." He said. I could tell that he was enjoying himself. "Tyler, could you carry me in your arms?" I asked. "Nope I prefer to do it this way." I knew he was teasing me. "Well if you don't I will swat your ass." I said. He stopped walking. I think he was shocked by my comment. I chuckled. "Good luck with that." He said. Oh he doesn't believe. As I was about to attempt it, he took me off his shoulder and into his arms. I looked up at him with a smug expression and wiggled my eyebrows. He laughed and continued walking.
We got to the nurse's office and he knocked on the door. He entered the room and put me on one of the chairs on the side of the room. He went straight to the nurse. He spoke to her for a minute and she came to examine my leg. She was shorter than me with light brown hair and blue eyes. What is it with everyone and their blue eyes? She smiled and said "I'm Jen. Tyler said that you hurt your leg." At least she was nice. "Yeah." I said. She took my leg and pushed it at various points. I winced once and told me it was a sprain. She told me to put ice on it and then she left. I looked up at Tyler. "See it's not so bad." I said. "Yeah but we just had to be sure." He replied. "I know, thanks" I giggled.
"Can I walk you back to your dorm?" he asked. "Sure." I said. I didn't argue this time when he picked me up. He started walking. He was consumed with his own thoughts and so was I. I looked up at him and he was looking down at me, and I smiled. "Penny for your thoughts?" I asked. "It's my birthday on Wednesday." He said. "So you're nearing old age?" I joked. He laughed. "Yeah I guess so."
He reached my door and he put me down on my feet. "Well thank you for today." I smiled. "You're welcome." He grinned. I took out my keys from my bag. I unlocked the door but I felt my arm being pulled away from the door and I was facing Tyler. The look in his eyes heated my whole body. His lips crushed down on mine and I felt paralysed for a few seconds. My brain eventually caught up with my body and I was kissing him back. He stroked my cheek and I vaguely realised that he pushed me up against the door. We kissed for a few minutes before we broke apart to catch our breaths. We still held onto each other. I looked up at Tyler and he was smiling at me. I smiled back and I knew my cheeks were flushed. "Well…that surprised me." I giggled. "Good, I'm going to continue to surprise you." He grinned. My legs felt like Jell-O.
"Elena, do you want to go out with me on Wednesday?" he asked. "Hmm let me think about it…" his expression dropped an inch but I smiled "I'd love to go with you." His smile grew. "I'll see you tomorrow then." He said with a grin. Before I could respond he kissed me again but this time it was soft and sweet. I wanted the kiss to continue but he broke away. I pouted and he laughed. "See you later." He said and kissed me quickly. He walked down the corridor and I watched him until he disappeared. I walked inside my dorm. I closed the door and slid down until I was on the floor. I brought my hand to my lips, they were swollen. Tyler kissed me and he asked me out. I felt shocked and then I felt extremely happy.
