Pistachio’s Nuts (Part 2)

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. Screenshot-10426Unfortunately, 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.Screenshot-10425Luck would have it, however, one of my roommates was a decent dancer, and she was willing to teach me.       Screenshot-10421And I thought I was doing pretty good, considering my foot condition.Screenshot-10420‘You’ve got a long way to go,’ she sighed, ‘maybe we should learn something simpler.’Screenshot-10424Many 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.Screenshot-10432I 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.Screenshot-10413‘I’d rather choke to death on toilet paper,’  came her response.Screenshot-10414That was a dark day indeed.Screenshot-10415This time, I was confident my plan would work. ‘What are you doing?’ Nicole asked as I reached out and placed her hands in mine.Screenshot-10433‘I’ll be your domestic King,’ I proposed, ‘I’ve even learnt how to clean and everything.’Screenshot-10434‘Also, I didn’t intend for that to rhyme…’Screenshot-10427‘Err, ok, but you’re still a douche-bag,’  Nicole ever-so-bluntly stated.Screenshot-10436‘I beg to differ,’ I replied.  ‘I’ve actually also took the time to learn how to make the best waffles in the world.’Screenshot-10440‘Seriously, they’re rather delicious!’Screenshot-10465Placing 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.Screenshot-10445‘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.Screenshot-10446‘If you hurt me, I’ll make sure you suffer.’  Those were the sweet words that sealed the deal.  Ok, then my brain shutdown.Screenshot-10437Despite this, somehow, I ended up with first in my degree.Screenshot-10510 Screenshot-10511I was pretty chuffed to say the least.Screenshot-10516Nicole 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.Screenshot-10522She withdrew sex for almost two weeks.  It was a very dark time.Screenshot-10524Before we left University forever, there was one more thing we had to do.Screenshot-10492‘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.Screenshot-10489‘They’ll have to catch us first,’ Nicole mentioned.Screenshot-10490‘That’s my girl!’Screenshot-10493Sinking into the warmth of the hot tub, completely naked, I sighed out in bliss.  To think this whole thing has been Nicole’s idea. Screenshot-10496‘Get over here, you!’Screenshot-10499Screenshot-10503‘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.Screenshot-10506Locking 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.Screenshot-10505

‘Go long!’ I shouted across the courtyard.Screenshot-10184Of course, Maple, my not so athletically gifted sister, barely had time to react before the ball whacked against her thigh.

‘Oomph!  Goddammit, not so hard!’Screenshot-10182‘Ha, that’s what she said!’Screenshot-10185University was one of those things I was roped into since a Physical Education degree was necessary in order to apply to the military career these days.  Shame it was ridiculously easy.Screenshot-10212‘Conclusion; he should have eaten more food.’Screenshot-10213The first party I was ever invited to at University was rubbish, and I was more than happy to express my view about this.Screenshot-10356‘Hate to say it Nicole, you really suck at hosting parties.’Screenshot-10224I must have struck a nerve because Nicole started getting all sassy with me.

‘Ok, boy, why don’t you host your own party and show me how it’s done?’ Screenshot-10227‘Hmm, that gives me a great idea.’Screenshot-10232‘Nicole, I am going to host my own party and show you how it’s done!’Screenshot-10226And so I started work on preparing my awesome party.  The first step was to the fix the juice keg, and modify slightly so more liquid would spurt out from the nozzle (whey oh!).  Then I compiled one of the best playlists of all times, so incredible that to this day I refuse to share it with anyone else.Screenshot-10280On the eve of the party, screeching like a nine year old girl at a One Direction concert, I shimmied over to the juice keg, where a couple of cute ladies were hanging out.Screenshot-10218It seemed they couldn’t keep their hands off my nozzle (whey oh!).  Screenshot-10220As I was about to suggest we got some body-shots going, I noticed that outside Nicole was sitting in the hot tub, fully clothed for some reason (at least from the waist up), all alone.  Handing my half-empty cup to the nearest person,  I tugged off my shirt and jeans, I rushed across the freezing cold grass and joined her in the bubbly warmth of the tub.

‘Hey, army boy,’ she teased, probably a reference to the camouflage patterned underwear I was wearing.Screenshot-10256‘You can take off your top, you know, and any other clothing really…’ I hinted.Screenshot-10248I half-expected her to get all sassy at me again, but instead her cheeks turned a light shade of pink.

‘It’s my first time in a hot tub and, as stupid as it sounds, since it’s snowing, I was worried about getting cold.’  I couldn’t bring myself to laugh at her stupidity, considering I was probably just as drunk as she was.Screenshot-10249‘So,’ I said, placing my arms behind my head, ‘since I won our bet with my party being so much more awesome, I guess that means you have to sleep with me now?’Screenshot-10261Preparing to scoot over to her, I was surprised when Nicole recoiled in disgust.

‘Firstly, what bet?  Secondly, what the hell is wrong with you, weirdo?’Screenshot-10257Naturally, those words stung, but no more than watching her clamber out the hot tub, flaunting her perfect bum in my direction as she announced she was going home.Screenshot-10259‘And so I can only conclude that she’s a lesbian,’ I explained to Maple once we were back at home to celebrate some kind of special occasion or event.  As always, she remained silent as she shook her head disapprovingly.Screenshot-10344Back at Uni, it took a few more weeks of partying and working out like a beast to realise that I was a bit of a douche-bag.  That side of me had to change pronto if I wanted to live beyond the age of twenty-five.Screenshot-10365

Bounty’s Hunt (Part 2)

Bounty’s Hunt (Part 2)

Life continued on as normal at University.  I even started to dabble in cooking, although this was usually only after consuming a few drinks, but was still the only one sober enough to use the BBQ without harming anyone, or myself.Screenshot-7889Things with Nathaniel hadn’t turned out as anticipated, mainly because he turned out to be a bit of a creeper who invented any excuse to see me in my (rather awesome feathered) bikini.Screenshot-7893Still, we often spent our time together with a couple of other friends, listening to tunes and gossiping in the hot tub.  Of course the topic of sex or nudity would often crop up, usually in relation to my pretty bad tendency to strip off when drunk.  Screenshot-7892One night, Nathaniel commented that I wouldn’t have the guts to go skinny dipping.   In hindsight I guess it was his ploy to see me naked, but I couldn’t say no to a challenge.Screenshot-7891As I whipped my bikini off, the look on his face was priceless, like he’d never seen a naked girl before.  Of course, he wasn’t man enough to strip off himself, in fact, he and the others ran back to the dorm with my bikini and towel cradled in their arms, laughing like hyenas.Screenshot-7890I didn’t give a damn, however.  The tub was so warm and cozy, and I was still a little bit tipsy.  Staying there all night wouldn’t have been an issue.Screenshot-7852‘Bounty!’ A familiar voice greeted.  Peering up, a mix of disappointment and anger flowed through my veins when I saw Samuel’s smug face staring down at me.Screenshot-7855‘Get the fuck out of here,’ I sighed, closing my eyes once more.Screenshot-7859Hearing his shoes scuffing against the grass, I assumed he had turned to leave like I’d suggested.  That was why I immediately opened my eyes when I heard the sound of flies unzipping, and almost drowned right there and then when it dawned on me he was taking off his clothes.  Once fully nude, he crouched down and clambered into the water.Screenshot-7857During all this, I openly checked out his body, muscular and toned, as expected for a police officer really.  Then I reminded myself that he was an arsehole, and a slimy one at that.Screenshot-7860‘Listen, I’m sorry for being a dick.  I didn’t know you that well back then… actually, I didn’t know myself.’   Screenshot-7862‘Please, stop with the bullshit already,’ I sighed, standing up and ushering him along a seat so I could sit back down beside him.  I didn’t care that I had given him an eyeful, he’d seen it all before. ‘I’m not going to be your rebound just because your girlfriend’s dumped you or whatever.’Screenshot-7864‘How many apologies is it going to take?’ Samuel asked.

Now thinking about it, this had to be at least his fifth attempt of making amends.  Fifteenth perhaps if all the Facebook messages were applicable.  He didn’t seem like too much of a bad guy.  Maybe I was being a bit harsh…Screenshot-7865‘What will it take?’ He eventually asked.

‘Would you run to the bathroom naked to grab me a towel?’ I proposed, curious to see how far he would go to win back my trust.

‘Of course, even if I had to satisfy a pack of jocks to get to it,’ Samuel revealed, carrying out an accompanying gesture.Screenshot-7878‘I think I may be starting to forgive you a bit,’ I confessed, sliding my arm across his shoulder.  ‘But only just a bit.’Screenshot-7868Now, please, don’t judge me.  I’d now seen what Samuel was “packing” underneath his uniform, plus he had the guts to do what Nathaniel was afraid of.  I figured he would leave once he got what he wanted, but, to my surprise, it didn’t turn out that way.Screenshot-7869Several months later, I graduated, not with first class honors, but a with a well-earned upper second class degree.Screenshot-7901Samuel was still by my side.Screenshot-7907He promised to make arrangements to come live with me in Setra, although I would have to wait until my brother and Adrianne moved out as there was a distinct lack of space in our household.Screenshot-7910I wasn’t worried about him hurting me again.  He’d heard about my family, our history, so I think he realised he’d be a bit of a moron to ever do anything to upset them.Screenshot-7909

Aero Dynamic (Part 2)

Knuckling down proved to be quite a challenge.  Some subject matters were more difficult to grasp than others.Screenshot-7558Musical theory was one of these topics.Screenshot-7561It was also slightly off putting having your girlfriend sat besides you snoring away.Screenshot-7563To keep my brain ticking over between classesI used the handyman skills I had picked up from my youngest brother, Hershey, to start up a little laptop repair company to make a bit of cash; you’d be surprised with how many students end up with broken laptops.Screenshot-7529Of course, I couldn’t rule out having a bit of genuine fun once in a while.  After passing my mid-term exams, I threw a masquerade party to celebrate.Screenshot-7592And partly as an excuse to show off my guitar skills.Screenshot-7580I also made sure to spend quality time with Adrianne since I’d been a bit of a rubbish boyfriend in the past.   Beer pong was one of our favourite activities whenever we wanted to unwind.Screenshot-7686I enjoyed it, purely because I usually won nine times out of ten.Screenshot-7685This annoyed Adrianne greatly.Screenshot-7684Obviously there were less competitive activities Adrianne and I enjoyed participating in whenever we had a moment alone, particularly in the hot tub.Screenshot-7698Screenshot-7697Like most people, I also needed my alone time every now and again.  Again, the hot tub was a perfect place to get away from everyone and relax.Screenshot-7703A few months of studying, socializing and romancing later, the final results were in.  My hands were shaking as I unfolded the sheet of paper that would determine my fate.  I was convinced I had only scraped a 3rd class degree at best.Screenshot-7781However, when my eyes scanned across the words, my heart skipped a beat.  Somehow I had snagged myself an upper 2nd class degree (Aka. a 2:1).Screenshot-7782Naturally Adrianne had done well too, although, annoyingly, she was only a few marks of obtaining a 1st class degree.Screenshot-7795Our graduation ended up being held on one of the snowiest days of the year, and although I was too stoked to care about frost bite.Screenshot-7810I was so proud to receive my diploma, as was Adrianne.Screenshot-7817Screenshot-7816We celebrated in style, savoring the limited time we had left at University before we had to head home and find proper jobs.Screenshot-7676To be honest though, I didn’t mind the prospect of growing up and getting old.  With Adrianne and my crazy family around, I knew I could still have fun along the way.
