The Adventures Of Ark Boy

Chapter 3

I stood up then, and stepped over Lyric to be face to face with Elinor. "You wanna take this outside?" I challenged her. 

"We are outside you dumb-ass." El replied. 

"I swear," I said, "if you weren't a girl I would slap you silly." 

El snorted. "Then pretend I'm not a girl." 

"Yeah, 'cause that won't be hard." 

Lyric was too busy watching us argue, that she didn't notice Seth move. When he placed his hand on her shoulder, she jumped. 

"Com'on." He said, helping her up and leading her away from us. "You looked like you needed to get out of there," He explained before taking her away.

"You can give me my cigarettes back then if they're so gross," I growled, holding out my hand. She slapped the box back into my hand. I looked back and noticed that it was only me and her now. "Where did they go?"

"I don't know," Elinor grumbled. Suddenly she kicked my leg and forced me to hope on one leg.

"What the heck was that for?" I asked roughly.

"I don't like you," She said, "to put it plainly." 

"You intrigue me," I mumbled smoothly, clicking my teeth.

She glared and folded her arms then grumbled: "I guess I'm stuck with you now."

"Scared of being alone are we?" I grinned.

"Nope, not at all . . ." She looked away from me and took a few steps down the hill.

"I'll just go then, shall I?" I said.

"Fine, Go!" She said loudly, sitting down. 

I acted as if I walked away. I found the perfect moment when she felt that she was actually alone and that I left her there. I pounced over, putting my hands on her shoulders. She screamed and jumped away, looking at me while panting.

"What the hell?!" She demanded. "You absolute jerk!"

"You're not as tough as you look, are you?" I grinned. She glared at me with the best of her ability after being shell shocked. 

This was all too amusing. I couldn't hold back laughs. "Ahh!" I mimiked, mocking her. I fell on the ground and started rolling around since I was laughing so hard. She grimaced at me as I punched the ground as I continued to mock her scream. "Ha! Classic! That was way to easy. You were so scared."

"You think your so cool don't you?" She asked me as i stood up. 

"Yes I do," I laughed, rubbing my eyes since they started tearing up I was laughing so hard. I thought my stomach was going to explode. "No wonder that girl hangs out with you, your a hoot!" 

"Shut up," She growled, turning away from me. 

"Boo!" I yelled. 

"You don't scare me." 

"Oh really?" I asked grimly. 


"Well what about this?" I mumbled before pressing my lips against her cheek.

"What the hell are you doing?!" She shouted at me, hitting me hard in the chest. I just laughed at her. She rubbed my cheek frantically.

"It was just on the cheek." I said with an evil little smile that made her want to rip my precious face off. "Oh, are you romantically inexperienced?"

"Where's your ark?" She asked.


"Yeah, like Noah's ark. Go get on your ark and sail far far away before I whack you, really really hard." She threatened, hoping I wouldn't actually leave. It was dark, and it was late. 

"You don't want me to go, do you?" I grinned.

"It's not that I like you or anything, I simply don't want to be left alone in the dark. I mean, you're a creep, but there are bigger creeps out there."

"Oh, please, like someone would want to rape you. Even rapists wouldn't touch you with a bargepole," I said.

"Oh wow, you cut me real deep there ark-kid, go ride one of your giraffes."

"At least the giraffe has a girlfriend," I protested, hoping to dig down far enough to get her to crack. I was a ladies man back at hom, so why couldn't I be one here? She was hard to get, but I was going to break her, and i wanted to accomplish that before she left. "Actually all the animals have someone to love! I guess you could call me cupid."

"I'd rather not," She growled.

I grabbed her arms, "I got my arrow, want to know your soul mate?"

"What?" She asked, looking up at me awkwardly. 

I poked myself in the chest, "Oops look who got hit," I sang. 

Her fingers balled into a fist and she threw a punch. I slipped away quickly before she could hit me. 

"What the-" 

"Miss Me, Miss Me!' I sang spinning around. "Now you gotta kiss me!"

"You wish," She looked at me with what can only be described as a look of disgust. "Look, if you head into the city and go into a bar, I'm sure there's someone drunk enough to sleep with you lurking about."

I raised my eyebrow.

"That's what you want isn't it?" She glared at me. "That's what guys like you always want. I hate to disappoint, but I'm not that kinda a girl and even if I were a slut and you were the last guy on the planet, it still totally wouldn't happen."

"You're weird." I said, grinning.

"You're annoying." She said, lying down on the grass. I lay down beside her, so she sat up. I sat up, so she stood up. "Pack it in!"

"Why?" I asked mockingly. "Do you want me to leave you all alone when it's dark and scary?"

"I've made it clear that I don't want to be alone," she said.

"Well, stop being mean to me and I won't leave you alone."

"I'm not being mean! You're being a retard!" She exclaimed, getting incredibly frustrated.

"I'm not a retard," I yelled, pointing my thumb towards my chest. "I'm a smart cookie! How dare you call me mentally challenged!" 

'I didn't actually mean you were mentally ill," She mumbled. "Even though I'm starting to think you are." 

"Plus I don't want to sleep with anyone," I explained, crossing my arms. "I just like a little lip action every once in a while. I don't sleep with just any girl." 

She just rolled her eyes. 

"My name is Noah," I greeted, shaking her hand. 


"A fresh start," I explained. 

"I don't want a fresh start. I want you to stop talking to me." 

"That isn't fun."

"You're impossible, y'know that?" Shw said. "Can't you just wait here silently with me until that brother of yours and Lyric reappear?"

"I can't be quiet for more than five seconds, when I'm in good company." I winked. "And what makes you think they'll reappear, maybe they're having fun."

"I thought we were having a fresh start." She said. "And Lyric isn't like that, not the kind of fun you're thinking of anyway."

"We are having a fresh start." 

"Stop acting like some kinda man-whore then, none of your crappy pickup lines are gonna work on me." She grumbled. "Oh and FYI, insulting women doesn't get them to make out with you, if they have a brain that is."

"They don't need to have a brain," I grinned. "I'm only after lip action, not a relationship."

"Knowing my brother he probably won't even think about coming back," I explained. "He doesn't really like hanging out with me too much." 

"What a surprise," Elinor mumbled. 

"You look very pretty in the moonlight."

"That's not going to work," she growled. 

"Fine," I groaned. I stood up and stretched out my arms. "I'll just head back to my bro's dorm. Number 16 if you want to drop on by."

"You can walk me back, I guess." She mumbled. "But I'm not coming into your room, I'm going straight to mine."

"Okay." I grinned and we started walking back towards campus.

The End
