He walked in with all his cute guy glory. He beamed when he saw me just sitting there and to be completely honest I was beaming right back. I don't know why, I guess I'm just glad to see him. Even if he did try to punch Scott last time, I mean if it were me I'd have tried to punch Scott too. He's such an ass...

"Heard you were out of commission, " he says still grinning and holding up a paper bag. "I figured I'd bring some of the best board games of all time for us to play. I mean if you're up to the challenge that is."

Okay, if we're being honest here I don't deserve his company right now. I look like an absolute mess. But for some reason, Oakland must be ignoring that fact.

So out of his giant paper bag he pulls out a giant tub of ice cream and several board games including my favorite game of all time: monopoly.

"So you actually live with Scott?" Oakland asks as he settles down across from me on my bed.

"T-to my dismay, " I say nodding.

"You can be the banker, " Oakland says passing me the monopoly playing money. "But you must remember that with great power comes great responsibility. Use it wisely."

"No p-promises."

"I guess I'll hold you to that."

I don't know why but I was seriously having a hard time reading Oakland. Like I couldn't tell if he was just a super nerdy cute guy that liked monopoly and ice cream. Or if he was just a guy from that party still trying to just hook up or something. But the second one doesn't seem very likely considering he came here even though I was just bitten by a snake therefore it would be rather tricky to hook up right now. But then again the odds of me actually finding a nice guy are just as unbelievable.

Anyways monopoly has always been one of my favorite games in the history of ever because it feels like it could just go on forever and ever. Plus I'm great at math.

2 rounds later Scott finally emerges from the bathroom.

Yes, he does take forever to shower.

He of course just had to step out without a shirt on. He's wearing a pair of very

knock a couple times before resting my head against the side of their door, I hear the door open a few seconds later.

"Greetings, welcome to my den of iniqu...Abby?" I hear Becca's voice before I look up at her. I limp past her and collapse on the bed.

"How the hell did you get here?" Becca asks crossing her arms as she towers over me. I sit up on my elbows.

"I walked."

"Without your crutches!?" She says practically screaming at me. "The doctor specifically told you-"

"W--where's Anna?" I ask cutting her off.

"She's been in the bathroom for nearly an hour now, " Becca says rolling her eyes.

No surprise there, Anna probably won't be out of there for another good 45 minutes.

"Are you mad at me because of what happened yesturday?" Becca asks. "Because if you are then you should get over it. I didn't predict that would happen and I can't forsee the future. So you should really stop bitching about it."

Okay well I guess to some extent I know she's right when she says this. But she didn't have to say it as harshly as she did. I feel like a little kid being punished for doing something stupid.

"B-becca I-"


I look over towards the open dorm door and see someone I didn't think I'd see again. At least not for a while. A certain asshole whom I'd thought I was finished with after high school.

Screw my life.
