"I'm up!" Jason's eyes popped open, instantly awake. "I'm up!" He struggled to sit up, slightly disoriented.
Liz couldn't help it. She stood, her mouth dropped open with surprise, and stared at his naked, ripped muscles. Sometime during the night, he'd lost his shirt. Oh dear Lord, she thought, resisting the urge to fan herself. He was so hot! "For plumbbob's sake!" she snapped. "Put some clothes on!"
Jason walked around the bed towards her. "Hey, thanks for letting me crash last night. I was pretty wasted," he told her with a grin. "You make a mean juice mix."
Liz shrugged nonchalantly. "No problem."
Jason squirmed in place for a moment. "Look, I'm sorry about the kiss..." he trailed off awkwardly.
Jason joined her laughter, rubbing the back of his neck with embarrassment. "Yeah, I guess it was a non-kiss!"
Liz waved her hand dismissively. "It was nothing. We were both wasted."
Jason felt like a weight had been lifted from his chest. "Phew! I thought you were going to be pissed!" he told her.
Liz slugged his arm. "Quit running around kissing chicks!" she lectured him playfully.
He saluted her before trotting off. "Yes ma'am!"
"Jason Black-Wolff," he said, waiting expectantly.
His prof pinned him with a disappointed look before turning to his seatmate. "Manisha?" he prompted, smiling as she began reciting the answer. His gaze swept the room. "Perhaps everyone in the class should strive to pay attention like Miss Kapoor."
Jason slumped in his chair. This was shaping up to be a pretty crappy day.
"Shut up! You don't know what you're talking about!" Ashley shouted as the rest of Jason's roomies gathered around to watch the two girls arguing.
"Thanks Tiffany. I'll take it from here," Jason said soothingly, cutting in before the girls could get agitated again.
Tiffany rolled her eyes, catching the stink-eye that Ashley was giving her behind Jason's back. "Whatever," she huffed, shuffling away.
Ashley fluttered her lashes. "Can we talk?" she asked quietly.
"I know. I love you, too, baby!" Ashley whisper fervently, slipping her hands under his shirt. "I can't believe I was so stupid and jealous!"
*AN - Ha ha ha - Before he headed off to class, Jason invited Ashley over to his dormroom. She said she'd be over soon, but didn't show up before he headed off to class. I assumed I missed the chance to have them hang out. Low and behold, when he walked in, there was Tiffany and Ashley fighting with the rest of the dormies gathered around watching. Lol. It cracked me up! Oh, these kids!
So, Liz did good laying into The-Wrong-Ashley & Ashley has come back, begging forgiveness! Any awkward feelings he was mulling on earlier in the day regarding Liz have been completely blown from his mind.
