[feedback is appreciated!!]


Real To Me

Catherine Kennelly ignored the voice on the other end of the phone as she slid her card key through the door and began climbing the stairs to her dorm room.

"You know, if you had a boyfriend you wouldn't have this problem," her mother yammered away on the line. "You would have a ready-made date to all the parties and an escort home."

Cat sighed as she unlocked her room, letting the door shut behind her as she dropped her book bag onto her bed and tossed her keys onto her desk. "I know, Mom,"she groaned into the phone. "You've only said this ninety times before"

"Well if you would just listen to me then you wouldn't have to hear me repeat myself. In fact, I would like to stop repeating myself, but I can't do that because you don't listen!"

Cat rolled her eyes. "Okay, Mom. Um, I have a lot of homework so I really have to go now, I'll talk to you later. Bye."

Ignoring her mother's protests, Cat hung up her cell phone with a click and fell onto her bed, sneaker-clad feet hanging off the side.

Her roommate Stacey was still in class, and their best friends Demelza and Aimee were both at work. Cat, blissfully, would not have any company for a few hours at least.

"I know you're here, Adam Rossi," she said aloud to the seemingly empty room. "You may as well talk to me"

She stared at the ceiling for a few moments before she heard anything.

"Hey, Kitten."Â The voice was male, smooth and perfectly pitched; not too low and not too high. It was a voice that Cat was very familiar with, and one that she loved to hear.

"Don't call me Kitten," she said now, sitting up on her bed and using her hand to brush her long dark blonde locks out of her face.

The owner of the voice was standing in the center of her room. He was roughly six feet tall with a slightly muscular build and a head of dark brown curls, which were usually flattened by the akubra hat that he always wore. His eyes were a dazzling green-flecked, and his nose was perfectly average, not too short or to long, but just the right length for an attractive profile. His mouth was usually quirked in a smile, lending a mischievous glint to his eyes and showing off his dimples, underneath the scruff that Cat loved so much.

A smirk was on his face now as he looked at Cat, hands shoved into the pockets of his jeans and the arms of his khaki long-sleeved shirt pushed up past his elbows. "You always tell me not to call you Kitten, but you know you like the nickname," he said. "At least, when I use it."

She fought a smile. He was right, damn him.

"See?" he pointed out, nodding at her. "I'm right."Â

"Shut up,"she mumbled, pushing her backpack onto the floor where it landed with a thud.

Adam took off his hat and sat in the now vacated spot next to Cat, wrapping his arms around her in a hug. "How was class?"

She wrapped her arms around him in return, turning so she was sitting on his lap. Burying her face into his chest while he pressed a kiss to her hair, she breathed in his glorious scent. "Awful," she answered, her voice muffled by his shirt. "Professor MacPherson is so boring and Howard gave us a quiz that I'm pretty sure I bombed."

Cat could feel his chest rumbling as he laughed. "Well, that sucks."

Picking her head up, she frowned at him playfully. "That's not very nice"

"No, it's not," he agreed, laughing again when she whacked him lightly on the arm. "Hey, I did my four years of college," he defended. "I'm graduated, I'm done. Now it's your turn to suffer, babe"

She groaned, letting her head fall back onto his chest. "I've been suffering through it."

"You still have a year to go," he pointed out. "It'll go faster than you want it to, trust me. Then it'll be 'welcome to the real world, Catherine Kennelly.'"

She laughed. "I don't want to go into the real world either. Then I have to grow up"

"Awwwww, my little Peter Pan," Adam said, ruffling her hair. "The real world isn't so bad"

"That's because you know what you want to do with your life, Ads, and you're getting really close to doing it. You've got three great roommates who are there for you whenever you need them." She paused. "How are Dan, Troy and Dierks by the way?"

"Just as crazy as always. Crazier now, actually, since Dierks moved in."Â He smiled. "But I also have you, and you'll always have me, even if I'm not with you."

She snuggled into his chest, listening to the steady sound of his heart beating. "Thank you, Ads. I love you."

He hugged her tighter. "I love you too, Kitten."

Footsteps sounding outside in the hallway grew louder then stopped. The doorknob to the room jiggled, then a knock was heard. "Cat? You there?"

"No," Cat whined.

Adam smiled softly. "Sorry babe, someone's here. Which means....."

"You have to go,"Â Cat sighed. "I hate this"

"Me too," he agreed. "But what can we do? Just give me a kiss and I'll be on my way."

She obliged, pressing her lips gently against his before getting up to answer the door.

A tall redhead was leaning nonchalantly against the door frame. Her straight hair was cut to just below her shoulders. She had large dark blue eyes, and was fair compared to Cat's dark tan.

"Hey, Cat," she greeted. "I wasn't sure if you were here are not because the door was locked."

"Oh,"Cat frowned. "It must've locked itself after I came in; I was just watching some television."

"Yeah, ours does that too,"Demelza nodded, and Cat gave a silent sigh of relief. "Anyway, work let out early and I'm starved. Want to grab lunch or something?"

"Sure,"Cat replied. Turning, she grabbed her keys off her desk and left with Mel, locking the door behind her. She didn't bother looking over at the bed; she knew without glancing that Adam was already gone.
