Caught Up in Between: The College (Book #1)

Chapter 1

“Hey, Becca! Open your eyes, sleepyhead! We’re almost near our hotel.

I woke up startled. Ugh, my neck hurt. How did I manage to fall asleep in a 30-minutes ride? I turned my head and looked at my best friend, Kate. She almost jumped with excitement, sitting behind the steering wheel of my Prius.

“Why are you yelling?

“You’re kidding?! Tomorrow you and I will be settling in the dormitory, and tonight we are going to our first college party at the infamous Kappa Alpha fraternity! I don’t even know about which I am the most excited!

“Let me guess? I bet it’s partaaay!” I laughed because she noticed my sarcastic tone and frowned.

“You’re no fun, lady!

“Sorry, Kate, I promise to behave.

“I honestly can’t believe that our parents let us go to college before tomorrow’s move-in day. I thought we would be coming here with them in tail, but I guess the fact that we’re both 18 and well-mannered let us slip! Glad they don’t know our secrets!” She winked at me, and I laughed. “So tonight is the party, and probably it will be my first one-night stand at college. And tomorrow, we will meet here with our parents and will settle in our dormitory!

“Do we need to go to the party? Maybe we will just take a walk around town, will find our way to the dormitory?

“Rebecca Dawson, you’re starting to piss me off! We had a deal! You promised me to go to this fucking party, and you will go with me. Even if I will need to drag you here!

“Okay, Kitty Kate, I give up. No need for violence!

“Good girl, you know I love you. Besides, why do you need a walk around town? Our hometown is only 30 minutes away. We were here hundreds of times, and it’s a small town, nothing like the Big Apple, where you can be lost within a few minutes!

“You have a solid point, girl. How soon will we arrive at our hotel? I want to use a bathroom badly.

“First you’ve fallen asleep, now you want to pee... Where is my best friend and what did you do to her, old lady?

“Shut up, Kate!” I smacked her thigh lightly, and she laughed.

“Well, thanks to my driving skills, we’re here! Go check us in, and I will park your car.

I groaned but followed her orders. Kate caught up with me when I strolled to our room. After I took my time in using the bathroom and walked into the room, she was already in her lacy red underwear and stared at two dresses on the bed.

“You should go with a strapless pink dress. You look sultry in it.” I plopped myself on my bed and looked at my friend. Her nose wrinkled with concern.

“Do you really think so?

“Yeah, but you will need to choose bra without straps.

“Consider it’s done.” Kate laughed, unclasped her straps from the bra, and wore this pink dress, which I suggested to her. She looked stunning and unbelievably sexy. Red curls enveloped her baby doll face with full lower lip and light green eyes. She already had makeup on her, and it only made her look more beautiful and more mature. But I guess it was her intention. We will be freshmen at this party, and she didn’t want to demonstrate this fact to everyone.

“You look perfect, Kate. This dress hugs all your curves in the right places and your cleavage... God, I almost feel pity for the boys at this party!

Kate spun in front of the mirror, looking at herself from all sides. She winked at her reflection and turned to me.

“Yeah, I am dressed to impress tonight and to seduce one of the fraternity’s guys! Are you sure that my round ass looks good in it?” She threw me a questioning look, and I nodded with a smile, which she returned. “Becca, it’s so good even to think that in three days we will start our study at college! It’s like my dreams come true! I am going to study with my best friend in the whole world, and we both are finally single!” She shut up almost immediately and looked at me for my reaction. I shrugged my shoulders; I didn’t want to think about my newly single life tonight. Kate noticed my movement and said, trying to ease the atmosphere.

“The most important question now, what are you planning to wear tonight?” I shrugged my shoulders again because truth be told – I didn’t care. I didn’t want to go to this party, and I was perfectly fine with arriving here with my parents tomorrow. But Kate made me come, she drove us here in my car and even chose this hotel for one night since tomorrow we will settle in our rooms. I sighed.

“I brought with me only one dress. This.” I dug in my travel bag and dragged a white summer dress. It was a scalloped lace A-silhouette dress with ¾ sleeves, and it served as a contrast to my tanned skin. I changed in it without hesitation and without waiting for Kate’s approval. I knew she wanted us to be sexy tonight, but I was going to look lovely. I put blue flats and let my brown hair down, tossing it a little. As my hair often was braided, it was a little curled at the end now, just as I loved it.

“Please, tell me that at least, you will let me do makeup to you?

“No, I am good,” I answered and put colorless lip gloss to moisten my lips and added green push-up mascara to my eyelashes. Kate and I were both green-eyed, but my eyes were a darker green color. My mom always had been telling me that my eyes were almost emerald green. When she saw me after I was born, her first thought was that my name should be Dorothy. Thanks to my grandmother, she didn’t let her do that. I loved my name, my full name actually – Rebecca, but as most of my friends called me Becca – I think I got used to that.

“Well, I must say. You look stunning, even in this boring dress.” I pout my lips at Kate, and she laughed. “It’s a lovely dress, but I was hoping for sexier, you know. But I guess, as long as this dress highlights your slim waist, big boobs and long legs – I’m okay with it. Even if your round hips and tight ass will stay hidden from all eyes”.

“We always have your ass and hips on display, right?” I winked at her and walked to the door. “Do you even know where this party will be?

“You forgot that I had a spring-fling with a member of Kappa Alpha fraternity last year? Of course, I know.” Kate answered and walked to me. She put her hand on my hip and said: “Ready?

“Always.” I smiled, and we exited our room.
