"Hm," he fixed a grin on her and leaned on the side of the table. "I would love for us to go to the section.." But the light tone in his voice started to go out as he trailed off: the side of mouth twitching a little. In truth, he really didn’t know which section in the store he wanted to go to—coming here was pretty much only for Tessa’s benefit.

Books weren’t the keen interests he pursued in his whole life. Seeing as he found them a little dull and slow for his attention span.

He fiddled both of his thumbs together before he finally looked up at her, frowning and looking anxious. “Well, maybe we could go to the manga section?”

Tessa nodded her head. “Sure! Let’s go try and find it.” She said with a smile, before she began walking past row after row of shelves, searching for the one labeled Manga.

Will grin “Should I take that as my cue to leave?”

Tessa shook her head as she sat back up. “No, don’t leave. I like the company.”

"Then, if Miss M. insists, I will stay," he replied.

"You don’t seem very social, though. I guess that’s why I’m surprised you haven’t fled yet." She said with a small grin.

"Agreed." Tessa said, nodding her head enthusiastically.

"So, we agree on literature -apart from dragons- and culinary arts. We’d make a great team!"

He wasn’t sure why he was still around this girl, but it felt good. He felt like it was okay to want company and kindness.

"We would make an excellent team." Tessa said with a grin.

"You know, I wasn’t expecting you to hang out with me for so long."

"Fair enough." Tessa said, nodding.

"Alright so, you like dragons, books, and books about dragons. Any other fun facts about yourself?"

Will thought about it and then looked at her with a serious expression. “Chocolate is probably the best edible thing mankind has ever made,” he replied.

"Agreed." Tessa said, nodding her head enthusiastically.

"Aaaand your manliness levels are decreasing a bit." Tessa said with a grin.

"Excuse me, but feeling doesn’t decrease my manliness,” though he had to admit he had cried over an animated dragon and that wasn’t very adult-like of him.

"Fair enough." Tessa said, nodding.

"Alright so, you like dragons, books, and books about dragons. Any other fun facts about yourself?"

"Thank the Angel, no late night phone conversations." She said, shaking her head.

She looked over at Jem and smiled, her grey eyes sparkling. It was funny how he could make her smile just by sitting there.

"Do you have any classes tomorrow?" Jem asked for the sake of saying something.

Tessa shook her head. “No.” She replied. “What about you?” She asked, lightly tugging at the hem of her dress.

"All to myself." Tessa replied, drawing her knees to her chest. "Kind of glad I don’t have to share it."

Jem nodded his agreement. “It’ll be a change.” He thought back to before Will had moved in with him. It had been a huge adjustment but now he was well-accustomed to his best friend’s ways.

"No more late-night phone conversations."

"Thank the Angel, no late night phone conversations." She said, shaking her head.

She looked over at Jem and smiled, her grey eyes sparkling. It was funny how he could make her smile just by sitting there.

Tessa laughed. “Yeah, you can.” She agreed as she took her shoes off and placed them near her dresser.

She took a seat on the edge of her bed, running her hands lightly over the comforter.

Jem pulled out the chair he had sat on during his last visit and turned it towards the bed. 

"So will you get a new roommate, or do you get to keep this room all by yourself?"

"All to myself." Tessa replied, drawing her knees to her chest. "Kind of glad I don’t have to share it."
