“This is a toxic relationship! You’re amazing, seductively interesting, and you’re hurting me!” Rick’s physics textbook doesn’t scream back at him, of course. “I can’t take any more headache meds for an hour.” He sets the book down carefully and runs down the hall, to go outside. He needs to focus on faraway mountains so the blazing pain in his eyes will fade a little. He’s stopped by a sound. Not just any sound, he peeks in the door and sees her moaning on the bed.
Cindy Calgrove is in a very revealing position, and very busy. Rick politely looks away. Her scream is primal. “Almost honor night and I’m behind again! Oh God, just gimme one more A plus, I need it NOW!” Everyone in the house knows her brain is exploding in bliss.
Blushing, Rick looks into the astonished face of his dear Scarlett. Pulling him down the hall, she whispers. “I wish you had that kind of scholastic passion.”
Through his headache, Rick teases her. “Be careful what you wish for. We eat and drink what they do. God only knows what’s in it.”
Eyebrows wiggling, Guillermo reminds them. “Your first honor night’s tomorrow. Don’t wanna miss that!”
Holy crap. Could this place get any weirder?
