Pistachio’s Nuts (Part 2)
The plan to win back Nicole’s affections was flawless. First of all, I cut down on being a dick. Second, she loved dancing; I’d seen her go crazy on several nights out – mostly grinding against other guys to try and make me jealous. Problem was, although I was physically fit, I had two left feet when it came to dancing and always resorted to that awkward swaying thing people do, instead of risking breaking a limb. Therefore, using a thing called the internet, I started my hunt for the best dancer on campus. Unfortunately, I had grown addicted to this game called The Peeps, where you create your own little virtual people and stick them in house, then either drown, starve or set them on fire, so I soon forgot about my quest.Luck would have it, however, one of my roommates was a decent dancer, and she was willing to teach me. And I thought I was doing pretty good, considering my foot condition.‘You’ve got a long way to go,’ she sighed, ‘maybe we should learn something simpler.’Many dance lessons later, I gatecrashed one of Nicole’s pool parties. She was not best pleased, but I managed to convince her that I could convince her that I was a better man.I figured things could go no worse than when we had crossed paths a month or so after the whole hot-tub incident. ‘How about I take you inside and warm you up?’ I had purred into her ear.‘I’d rather choke to death on toilet paper,’ came her response.That was a dark day indeed.This time, I was confident my plan would work. ‘What are you doing?’ Nicole asked as I reached out and placed her hands in mine.‘I’ll be your domestic King,’ I proposed, ‘I’ve even learnt how to clean and everything.’‘Also, I didn’t intend for that to rhyme…’‘Err, ok, but you’re still a douche-bag,’ Nicole ever-so-bluntly stated.‘I beg to differ,’ I replied. ‘I’ve actually also took the time to learn how to make the best waffles in the world.’‘Seriously, they’re rather delicious!’Placing my arms on her waist, I told her to follow my lead as we started dancing a crazy combination of the waltz and a drunken walrus. Soon enough, we got the hang of it and it was rather pleasant being that close to her.‘You’re definitely the strangest guy I’ve ever met,’ Nicole sighed, drawing her lips close to mine. Then we kissed, and quite honestly my brain shutdown after that.‘If you hurt me, I’ll make sure you suffer.’ Those were the sweet words that sealed the deal. Ok, then my brain shutdown.Despite this, somehow, I ended up with first in my degree. I was pretty chuffed to say the least.Nicole did well too, achieving a 2:1. I teased her that she missed out on a first because of all the rubbish parties she threw.She withdrew sex for almost two weeks. It was a very dark time.Before we left University forever, there was one more thing we had to do.‘I’m pretty sure we could get arrested for trespassing,’ I stated, staring down at the hot tub that had tried to bring us together in the past, but had failed miserably.‘They’ll have to catch us first,’ Nicole mentioned.‘That’s my girl!’Sinking into the warmth of the hot tub, completely naked, I sighed out in bliss. To think this whole thing has been Nicole’s idea. ‘Get over here, you!’‘You know, I really love you, army boy,’ Nicole cooed. Usually such mushiness would have made me vomit, but since we were in a hot tub, that wouldn’t have been a good shout.Locking lips, I decided I could get used to spending the foreseeable future with this lovely lady; even if her parties were a little bit naff.
