I'm finally here. I've made it.
I am walking through the campus of the new place I get to call home, the place where I get to be with Tobias. He is already ahead of me, shipping my boxes from his car to my new dorm room. I walk up the stairs to my room with the last box when I see him, he speeds towards me with a crooked grin on his face and takes the box from my hands while kissing my cheek. I sigh and roll my eyes, exasperated.
He chuckled under his breath, "I know you could handle it, I just love carrying boxes..." He winked at me, "besides, what would people think of me if I was making you do all the heavy lifting?"
"They would think this is the 21st century and women are perfectly capable of carrying their own belongings." I retort, crossing my arms in fake annoyance and speeding up so that I was just ahead of him, mainly so he couldn't see the smile creeping onto my face. I could hear his laugh echo in my wake, as I sped towards my new room.
It was small and bare, with the paint slightly chipped and peeling in the corners, but I liked it. There were two beds and a bathroom attached; the kitchen and living area was shared between all the other dorm rooms in the building. I dropped my stuff onto my bed and turned to see Tobias entering the room behind me. I closed the gap between us, and met his mouth with mine. We broke apart, but kept close so that I could feel the movement of his lips on my skin as we talked. His hands were cupping my face, his fingers lacing through my hair.
"I can't believe you're here, you're with me. I'm the luckiest man alive to have you here. Everyday we can be together, just like it was when we met." He whispered heavily against my neck, pausing between words to kiss it. I sighed in relief, closing my eyes and tipping my head back, as if to thank God that I was finally here.
"I'm not interrupting anything am I?" A tall, blonde guy with a walked through the door to my room and put his stuff on the opposite bed to mine. I tried to jump away from Tobias, but he kept me close with an arm locked tightly around my waist, and grunted in annoyance.
"Can we help you?" He asked in a harsh, snarky voice. I hated how unfriendly he came across.
"Uh, yeah. This is my dorm room, you must be my roommate?"He held his hand out for Tobias to shake.
"No!" I said quickly, startled. "This is my room..."
"Wait, so we're roommates?" He said with a smirk, looking me up and down. I crossed my arms in front of me to try and protect myself from his condescending gaze.
I shook my head at Tobias to tell him no, he had a dangerous look in his eye that meant he could do something stupid. He let out a ragged breath and clenched and unclenched his fists. After a moment's pause, he broke the silence. "We'll fix this."
And then he stormed out of the room and pulled me with him.
