Good morning! It’s Friday, it’s the weekend and I am ready for my days off from work. I have some plans to go walking (exciting I know), but it is always nice to be outside in nature for a while.
We continue on our Adventure with Zac and Melanie. Will they actually meet? Will Zac break up with Talia? Continue reading to find out! Enjoy!
“99…100…ugh.” Zac laid on the floor of his room. 100 pushups was harder than he remembered. “I have to work out more.” There was a knock on his door. “Come…in.”
Talia cautiously came through the door. “Oh good. I thought I was disturbing you.”
Zac rolled over on his back. “Oh…yeah…no…I’m just very out of breath from pushups.
Talia closed and locked the door. She walked over and sat down next to him on the floor, sitting on the floor facing Zac’s face. “I found this taped to your door.”
Zac grabbed the envelope she was holding and saw the same writing as the previous one. He groaned. “What is this?” He quickly read through it and threw it to the side. “At least they signed this one.”
Talia frowned. “What’s her name?”
“Well…I don’t even know it’s a girl. I’m just assuming it is because of the writing. But this one is signed M. So maybe her name is something like Maddie or Madison.”
“Okay…so now you have a lover?”
Zac shook his head. “Definitely not, but I’m not sure what to think. It’s kinda worrying actually.”
Talia tilted her head. “Why are you worried? This isn’t going to get between us is it?”
He sat up and put both hands on her shoulders. “No! Of course this isn’t going to get between us. We are a power couple. Nothing can get between us. Not these dumb letters. Not our friends. Nothing. Do you understand?”
She smiled shyly. “Of course I understand baby. I just don’t want to see you hurt. So let’s think about this reasonably and responsibly okay?”
He hugged her. “Yes, definitely. We will stay level headed about it.” He stood up and kissed her on the top of her head. “I’m gonna shower and then I need to work on my project. I was going to go to the library again. You can join me if you want.”
“Maybe for a while. I have dance practice at 3 so maybe I’ll come study and keep you company until 2. Would that be okay?”
Zac smiled. “It would be an honor to study next to you my lady. Why don’t we meet in the library in 30 minutes. I’ll grab a pizza on the way for fuel.”
Talia slowly stood up. “You know…for someone who is studying to be a doctor, you really don’t eat that great.”
“What can I say? I’m a doctor, not a nutritionist. So for now, pizza and soda.”
Talia left and Zac got ready. He grabbed his backpack and all of his things and headed out the door. After a quick pit stop at the campus Little Caesars, he headed to the library where he would probably spend the rest of the day.
After a couple hours of studying, Zac got up to take a break. Talia was there to watch his belongings as he walked around. He walked up the stairs, around the top story, and the back down. As he was walking back to his study space something caught his eye.
A girl. She had long dark hair and was hiding behind a phone. But she seemed odd. Almost like she was trying to take pictures of Zac. Was she sitting there the entire time he was there?
Zac sat down. “Hey…has that girl been sitting there the whole time we have?”
Talia looked up. “Which one?”
“The one with the long dark hair. She’s holding her phone up, it has a black phone case.”
Talia shook her head. “Babe I couldn’t tell you. I haven’t really been paying attention.”
“Okay. I’m hoping she isn’t M and is taking pictures of me.”
“I think you might be overreacting.”
Zac sat back in his chair. “Yeah…probably.”
Melanie sat eagerly at her printer. She took so many photos of Zac in the library. But he noticed her! That was the exciting part. He saw her while he was studying. It was meant to be.
She pulled the 5 new pictures off the printer and put 4 of them in the photo album. The fifth one was a photo of him and his “girlfriend”. She wasn’t his girlfriend. Melanie was. They were meant to be together.
Melanie grabbed a sharpie and scribbled out the blonde chick’s face. Melanie wasn’t concerned about what her name actually was. She didn’t matter. It was Melanie. It was all about Melanie.
As she sat at her desk she looked out the window to see Zac walking. She gasped and ran out the door. As soon as she got outside she went straight to the sidewalk and followed behind Zac. He had no idea that she was following him. It was perfect. Melanie could feel the positive energy between them even though she followed from a distance.
Once Zac reached his dorm building she stayed further behind. She knew which dorm was his, she just wasn’t sure which room. She watched the windows to see him inside. And then it happened! She saw him in a window. He took his shirt off and grabbed another from the closet. It was his room and she had to get in there.
Melanie decided to wait it out to see if Zac would leave. She watched him put on a nice shirt and spray some cologne. He walked out the bedroom door. Melanie hid behind a tree to make sure she could see him leave. She saw him walk out of the building, kiss the blonde chick who had been waiting, and start walking toward the parking structure.
It was time.
Melanie climbed a tree that was close to his window. She gingerly made her way out onto the branch that was closest to the window. Without issue, she was able to take the screen off and slide the window open. And with one foul swoop, she was in Zac’s room.
It was perfect. She laid down on his bed to take in all of his smell. She looked at all of his belongings, taking note of everything. Melanie opened the closet and found her favorite red shirt which she gladly took. She then grabbed two more shirts, a blue one and a black one, both very simple shirts that smelled like Zac. She took a pair of basketball shorts that were definitely too big for her, but she didn’t care. He left them there for her as gifts. And she was finally able to appreciate them.
She picked up the cologne and sprayed her new gifts. She folded everything and held it under her arm to take back to her dorm. She put everything back the way it was and got down the tree. She made her way back to her dorm so she could dress herself in his gifts to her.
As soon as she arrived back, she locked herself in her room. She quickly undressed and slowly slid into Zac’s clothes. She put on the red shirt and sighed. It was too big for her but she didn’t care. She was planning on just sleeping in it and thinking of Zac in her dreams. She slowly stepped into the basketball shorts and it just felt right.
She put another shirt over her pillow as a pillowcase. She wanted to feel his shirt on her face as she slept, be able to smell him as she drifted off to sleep. Melanie laid down in her bed and started to squeal. This was how everything was supposed to work. This is how her life was going to work out.
