"What was that about?" I asked as soon as Alex left.
"Well you weren't exactly nice. I need her to like me so I can live here without feeling awkward you know."
"Well sorry." We glared at eaach other for a moment, and then I sighed.
"I'm sorry. It's just I feel like I'm trying really hard to make her see that I'm not going to stare at her, and there's still no change, adn then you just come in and openly hate her..."
"It's my fault for being all high and mighty. She's just prettier than I thought she would be. And it kind of made me... jealous."
"Jealous?" My mind flashed back to this morning when I had looked at Alex dressing. "Why would you be jealous?"
"Because. She has you here. And I'm far away."
"She's not a lesbian you know. I'm perfectly safe."
"It's not that. Well it is, kind of. The way she was looking at you... are you sure she's straight?"
"Well, yeah... I think so. She's never said anything, and she was kind of freaked out about sharing a room with me. I guess she is straight."
"Well I'm not too sure... but as I say, it could be jealousy. Can we just forget about it, please?"
"Umm, I guess." I was in deep thought now though, analysing everything that had happened since Alex had arrived. Could she be a lesbian? I mean I thought I caught her looking at me earlier, but that could have just been m imagination. Nothing leapt out at me.
"Will, you've left the building." Alice was waving her hand in front of my face.
"Sorry, I just... got caught on a thought."
"Penny for them?"
"Just... just wondering about where we should go now. I was thinking maybe you could come to the party we are holding tonight."
"Oh, alright then." She didn't believe me I could tell, but she left my brain in peace. "I'd love to do a uni party."
