Jenna is so happy to be here. Even if she is just a little bit lost. Her first day at a new school, in a big new city and, well, she's not exactly sure where she is right now and she might have forgot to charge her phone before she went exploring. But that's ok! Right now she's still perfectly happy to look up at the big buildings and see all the people (so many people!) and if she can't find her way back in a little while she'll ask someone for directions, or worst case -- flag down a cab and pay. She still has her wallet, she's not stupid. But it really is starting to get dark out. But there's a really awesome tall building over there! Maybe she'll start looking for a way home a liiiiitle later. Once she goes and sees the building. And all the people. Jenna pulls away from the crowd, and half-skips (with repressed excitement!) down a quiet side street to get closer to whatever-that-building-is.

Ooh, that one's pretty. And adorably excited about something. He wonders what she'd look like crying. Hopefully he's about to find out.

She's headed straight for him; he parks on the side of the street, a little ways away from his apartment building. Is that where she's going? Does she live here, or what? He rolls down the window and watches her.

Jenna exits the little side street and ends up on another. She looks left and right to see if if she can figure out where to go next and gosh that's a car. The guy inside it is kindof cute (ok, very cute?) and looking in her direction which is a little creepy but it's not like she hasn't had that happen to her before. She wanders a little closer to the car just to get a better look at it. She briefly considers asking for directions, but, well, she has more exploring to do! And something rubs her not quite the right way about him, regardless of how cute he is. She'll get to an area with a few more people in it first.

Oh, she has a sense of self-preservation after all. Pity.

Still, might as well make an honest effort to get her into the car of her own will. He leans out the window a little.

"Hey, you all right over there? You look a little lost."

Permalink

Jenna turns and grins in his direction. She's still a little worried about him watching her, but, well -- he seems nice, right? She can get a little bit of a closer look and if he seems fine, well, she can always check out the really big building tomorrow when she has a charged phone. She walks a little closer. 

"Oh, I'm doing just fine, sir! It's just my first day in a city like this, you know? I'm just having a good time exploring." She pauses a half-dozen feet from the car. Something in the back of her head is still gently warning her of danger, but wow is he cute. She takes another step closer. 

"I... might have gotten turned around a little bit, though. Could you be so kind as to point me in the general direction of campus, sir? I'm sure I can figure out the rest of the way from there." She puts on a small winsome smile. 

Permalink

"'S that way," he says, gesturing. "I'd give you directions but I'm terrible at giving directions. Could drive you there, if you want."

This is in fact one hundred percent true. He always makes a mess of it if he tries to give directions out loud, and he will happily drive her wherever she wants to go, if she does him the favour of getting in his car.

Permalink

He's still cute but she's not getting into this stranger's car in her first day in a big city and proving her mother right, nope nope nope. Even if statistics (which she showed her mother again and again) say that that really doesn't happen, even if the car looks amazing and he's so pretty, no, she's not going to get randomly abducted on her first day and vindicate her mother's silly fears, that would be so stupid. She takes a couple steps closer. 

"Oh, that's quite alright sir! I'm pretty happy just taking in the new sights and sounds and smells and... well, everything! If you can just point me which street to go down next I'm sure I can find someone else to give me something more specific in a bit, no need to put yourself out for me." 

Permalink

Okay, what would he do here if he was actually just being helpful?

(He resists the urge to just tell her the full truth. She'll think he's crazy and she definitely won't get in his car.)

"Here," he says, getting out his phone and opening Google Maps, "I can just show you."

It'd be a bit silly at this point to stay in the car, so he gets out (stretching a little as he does it, he loves the way this body moves) and heads around the front to step up onto the sidewalk.

Permalink

Oh my gosh he is so hot. And cute. And hot. And... some part of her that's... some primal cavegirl thing is afraid of his muscles and size (even while she's admiring them, because, well, dang) but it seems silly and impolite to not go over and look at the map and... see what he's like up close? For information. Science. Not for any other reason. Definitely. And well, honestly, she really should get back home and a quick look at a map would be helpful. 

She puts on a wide smile and starts to head over to him, still a little cautiously. "Sure! That would be great, thank you!"

Permalink

"So we're here," he says, pointing out the location marker on the map and then zooming out a little, "and you want to be there," he gestures at the general area of campus. "So you wanna go down, uh, whatever the hell that street is called. I am not a very verbal navigator."

His phone screen is pretty big but she still has to get pretty close to get a good look at it.

Permalink

She stands next to him to look over his shoulder. Well. Next to his shoulder. She can't look over his shoulder because he's so big and his muscles are so big and some demented part of her brain wonders what else might be as big and... nope, nope, she's just getting directions from this very rich, very attractive stranger. Nothing else. 

"Wow it looks like I've been wandering for a while, doesn't it?" She glances back up at the darkening sky for a second and then back down at the phone. Then over at the car. She really shouldn't get a ride in this stranger's awesome car just to see what it's like. She really shouldn't. "I'm, are you, um, that's a really nice car you have there, you know? Like, wow!" Great. She's supposed to be studying to be an actress, but apparently this is the best she can manage? Perfect. 

Permalink

He grins. "It is! I've only had it for like a week, my parents got it for me as a present-slash-bribe for going to college, and it's the fucking best. Sure you don't wanna ride in it?"

Permalink

She shouldn't. She shouldn't she shouldn't she shouldn't. Even if it is a cool car and a hot boy and her ability to speak is starting to desert her for some reason. "Really? That's... some bribe! What... what did they have to bribe you for, anyways?" She takes a step closer, hand hovering over the car. It's so sleek and black and awesome and she's a little afraid to touch it (will it mess it up somehow? No that's silly, it's a car, he's driving it, it's made to do things. Touching it wouldn't be a problem) but she kindof wants to. "What school are you going to? I'm going to study here too, I'm at MTC." 

Permalink

"Oh, yeah? Me too. I hate school, way too much sitting still and reading, but apparently having a kid who never went to college is just too much shame for them to bear so, as with most problems, they decided to solve it with money."

He watches her hand for a moment, then adds, "It won't break if you touch it, promise. Although if you really wanna feel something special you should check out the seats."

Permalink

She touches the car. It's... well, it feels like a car, to be honest. He's almost certainly right, the interior is going to be much cooler than the outside. She leans over to look through a window at the.. yup, those look like nice red leather seats. Jenna never really was into cars that much but wow this one looks nice. And, one ride wouldn't hurt, right? Would it? Her mother, just, never needs to know. The guy seems nice (well, hot and nice) and people are nice and she's probably not going to get another chance to ride in a car like this again (well, at least not until she's rich and famous, but, well, that might be a while) and he seems... well, maybe she should scope him out first. Maybe just a little? 

 

"They... sound like not the best of parents if you ask me." (Wait, don't insult his parents!) "But they do give really good presents!" (Change the subject, change the subject, stop talking about his parents!) "Um. What would you be doing if not going to college, then?" 

Permalink

He laughs. "Man, I don't know, I'm honestly kind of a failure as a person. I like dance but I'm not good enough to go professional, I've messed around with art but same... if I actually had to worry about money I'd be in trouble."

Permalink

Jenna can believe he dances. He looks really good. She also has no idea what to say to the rest of that. "You look like you'd be really good at dancing." Well, that works. Probably. "And... I'm sure you could do something. I bet you could get into acting, or, well, modeling, at the very least!" And now he knows she thinks he's hot. Great. "That's what I'm here at school for! I mean, acting, not modeling, that is."  

Permalink

"Aww, thanks!" He grins. He has, it must be said, a really nice smile. "Good luck with that, I hear it's pretty tough."

After another moment spent watching the way she looks at his car (and the way she looks at him, for that matter), he cracks the door open and reaches in to roll down the window. "Here," he says, "if you wanna see what I mean about the seats..."

Permalink

She shouldn't she shouldn't she shouldn't. "Oh, I wouldn't want to impose," she says, her hand already reaching in.

Jenna leans over a little more so she can touch the seat. Aaaand... yep. "Wow, these are really nice. I bet this girl handles like a dream." Why did she say that it's what all the girls in all the movies say but it's not something she'd say in a million years what is she doing

Permalink

He giggles.

"Oh, you have no idea how true that is."

Permalink

It wouldn't hurt to get in, right? No matter what her mom says, she's not going to get chopped up into a dozen pieces and dumped in a back alley. "Well... I guess... I guess I wouldn't mind if you drove me back. It is getting a little dark." Her phone isn't charged what is she doing. "I mean. If that's still okay! I really don't want to impose the directions are good enough!" She's not into cars but seriously when is she ever going to get another opportunity like this? She pulls her hand out. "You've been so nice I wouldn't want to impose any further." 

Permalink

"Trust me, it's not imposing at all. Driving this car around is not exactly a hardship." He smiles a little. "What's your name, by the way? I'm Sean."

Permalink

Jenna blushes a little when she realizes they've never introduced themselves. "Oh, I'm, Jenna." She puts her hand out for him to shake. "Nice to meet you." The handshake is totally not necessary but the part of her that continues to be really attracted to him is jumping on the opportunity to touch him, even in this perfunctory sort of way. 

Permalink

He grins and shakes her hand; his grip is gentle but firm. "Nice to meet you too!"

And then he opens the door so she can get in the car.

Permalink

His hands feel really nice. 

Damnit what is she doing she should not be getting into this car with a stranger like this who is very cute and friendly... But she wants to have a ride with the cute boy. And she... Well, she's only going to get a ride and maybe give him her number and make any further decisions when she's had a few hours to clear her head. Period. But maybe this could be more and he clearly thinks she's cute and... Fine. Fine. She really is curious, and he goes to school too, and, and...

She gets in the car. The seats are even more comfortable than they looked, and the whole thing still has that new car smell. She sighs and relaxes backwards into the lovely leather seat. 

"So," she says, by way of making conversation, trying to cover her heart flutter. "What are you studying then? And where?"
