Because I Care [Part 3]

"I'm. going. to. be. late" Nicki struggled to say since Drake kissed her after every word and the bell was about to ring any minute. Her hands slid down his chest and lightly pushed him away.

"Bye" She walked up the remaining stairs as he shouted it back. He went the other direction back down the stairs. 

"What was that? I thought she was just tutoring you" Isaac had been waiting for him and saw him kissing Nicki.

"Spending a lot of time with someone can lead to many things but did it cross your mind that I might be attracted to her?"

"No"

"You don't know like I do. She is so pure and sweet and I'm the total opposite but we managed to click somehow. I'm just giving her an insight into how relationships are. She'll get tired of me like Rihanna and the others did so no harm no foul. What girl hasn't got tired of me?"

"That's true"

They headed to Mr Hyde's class, the one he was dreading. Nicki had been tutoring him but over the last two weeks he had been more focused on her. Today was the day he would be tested and he really hoped he would at least pass this time.

"I hope you've all studied" Mr Hyde said and began passing out the quiz papers. "You may start now"

Drake looked at the paper and knew he was fucked. After contemplating his answer for about ten minutes, he wrote something down and moved onto the next one. He soon began to get the hang of it and finished thirty minutes later. He stood up from his desk and walked to the front of the class.

"Finished Graham?" Drake nodded and gave him the paper and turned to sit down. "You might as well, wait while I mark it" Mr Hyde got out his pen and got to looking at his test. It didn't take him long to mark the whole test.

"You should be proud of yourself" Drake took his test back off of him and had to take a second look. He scored 89%. 

As soon as the lunch bell rang, Drake ran out the classroom in search of Nicki. He found her with her best friend who for unknown reasons hated him. He picked her up and spun her around kissing her as she landed on her feet.

"What was that for?" She laughed. He digged into his pocket for his test paper and showed her it.

"Aww Drake, congratulations" 

"All thanks to you Miss Maraj"

"Shut up. It was always in you, you just slack... A lot"

"Ready for our lunch date?"

"Of course" Kristen stared at them angrily. Nicki had changed a lot after she starting hanging out with him. The other day she told her to "fuck off and get out her business", Nicki never swore or was rude like that so she knew something was up.

"Drake, can I talk to you?" Kristen walked away from them so they could speak privately and Drake kissed Nicki before following her.

"I don't know what kind of game you're playing but I will not let you mess around with her and leave her heartbroken. You're a bad influence on her"

"I'm not playing a game"

"Oh really? Didn't you just break up with Rihanna or whatever her name is and now you're all over Nicki"

"That's none of your business. I like Nicki. Why can't you just fuck off and stay out of her business? And if you don't mind, she's waiting for me" 

"What was that about?" Nicki asked.

"She was just looking out for you so still want that piggy back?"

"Definitely" Once she was on his back, she turned and waved bye to Kristen before Drake walked in the other direction.

~

They were at her house and were watching a movie together. She had asked him to stay the night with her in her words, "Do you want to stay over at mine? My brother is out with his friends and won't be back till the morning and my mum and her new boyfriend are having a weekend away?" It was strange she had asked him that because he was talking to Rihanna to clear any bad air between them and she had said to him that he should be careful with Nicki, her exact words were "She is not like you or me, she will want to live up to your standards so watch out but you should give her a chance because she's a sweetheart" Was she right?

"You're not watching this, are you?"

"Nope" 

Kisses on her lips, kisses on her head, kisses on eyelids, kisses on her neck. One minute he was on top and the next she was.

"Bedroom" She whispered.

It was strange being on her bed with her walls full of magazine articles and pictures of random things and her bookshelf full of novels, it still felt romantic even with the millions of eyes watching their every move. 

"I like you" She says between kisses. "I like you so much" She fought the urge to say love instead but it would throw them off and that was something she didn't want.

"Should we take our clothes off?" She shyly said.

"Sure" Things started to get awkward. Did she want him to take off her clothes? Did he want her to take off his? Should they just take their own clothes off? After some mental deliberation, they did both. 

"Wow" He ran his hands up and down her thighs. He was taken back. Before he had said some things about her that he would be repeating again but things were different now. With her hair down and her in somewhere she could completely be herself, no t-shirts or loose fitting jeans, she was stunning. 

She laughed and leaned in to kiss him. He leaned forward to move her back so she was lying down which was awkward since she was sat on her knees but they made it work. With both of them on their backs, Nicki pulled the covers over their bodies. 

"Do you have protection?" She said against his lips.

"In my car, do you?"

"Mmm hmm" She rolled over and grabbed a condom from her draw. "Just to be on the safe side" He took it out of her hands and ripped it open with his teeth. Laying back down, Nicki reached down and pulled off her panties disposing them on the floor beside her while Drake put the condom on then she sat up for a second to take off her bra. 

"Done?" Drake rolled over and brushed his lips against hers. She pulled him closer pulling got onto top of her. Being on top was something new for him. All the other girls he had been with preferred being on top but with Nicki, this one would be the best. They could be fancy and try other positions the next time... If there was one. He ran his hand over her face then kissed her cheek and her lips.

"I'm so glad I met you"

"I'm so glad I met you too" He pressed himself against her but didn't not go any further. "Ready?"

She nodded. "Go slow" She held onto his back as she felt him push through. She breathed slowly and grabbed his face. He looked at her for reassurance to move and she gave him a small smile. He thrust back and forth feeling her warm breath on his neck. Her eyes closed and her mouth moving with the breathy moans she was letting out. 



They laid there in silence. Nicki was laying on her stomach with her head on his chest.

"Can I tell you something?"

"You can do whatever you want to"

"Why do you drink so much?"

"My life was and is really complicated. My dad left my mum when I was younger so she had to start working more and coming home later and it angered me. So I turned to drinking, it's like my escape"

"Do you know why your dad left?"

"No, nor do I want to, he threw me away like I was nothing. I don't care for him anymore"

"Well as they say, someone's trash is someone else's treasure" She said with a smile on her face. "You can be my treasure, I would never throw you away"

~

Drake opened his front door and was met by a extremely happy Nicki. "I was hoping to find you here" 

"And why is that?"

"Because" She sang. "I had a talk with my mum and I laid down the law and said 'mum I'm going to fucking Stanford and there is no discussion about it' and now I'm going to Stanford but I did get grounded for being rude to her and swearing but it was worth it"

"I'm so proud of you"

"I'm so proud of myself" She jumped into his arms and to celebrate they took shots and headed up to his bedroom. She was glad his mum was working late that night. After the congratulatory sex, she told him the full story of how they were talking about her future and when her mother brought up going to Julliard.

"Since we're celebrating, I got you something" Drake reached under his bed and pulled out a small wrapped box with a little ribbon bow on it.

"What's this?" 

"Just open it, you'll like it" Nicki pulled the bow and took off the wrapping paper. Confused but excited, she took the lid off and stared at it. "It's a flask"

"I know. it's just like mine but" He took the flask out of the box and turned it over. "It says your name on it so it's special"

"I love it"

"I knew you would"

"I love you"

"No you don't, it's just the sex and alcohol talking"

"But I do" 

"Nicki, you don't even know what love is!"

"I may not but I know I love you"

"God Nicki, you're only saying that because I'm the first guy that took interest in you and you feel like you should say it to me but you don't have to" 

"Don't tell me what I feel, you don't know. I know what I fucking feel and I'm going to go before things get ugly and we ruin everything" She pushed his hands off of her and grabbed her clothes that were scattered on his bedroom floor and put them on. She looked at him with disgust and picked up her bag walking out of his room.

"Wasted all my time on a guy that doesn't care about me. Typical" She said to herself. 

Drake ran his hands over his face and climbed out of bed. He put on his boxers and his pants chasing her. By the time he got downstairs, she was halfway down his driveway. 

"Nicki, wait!" 

"Wait for what? For you to apologise for making me feel like shit? To make me feel better?" She screamed at him facing him. "Fuck you!" She kept walking searching in her bag for her car keys, not looking where she was going.

"Nicki!" 

"What?!" She was ready to get her anger out and walked back towards him. "What else do you want? I gave everything to you. Everything. And I got nothing in return! I'm tired of being in a relationship like this. I don't need you or want you. Have a good li," A car came speeding down the street and the driver did not see the teenager in front of it. She didn't even have time to scream as her body was hit and she rolled off the car bonnet.

"What have I done?" He repeatedly says to himself, running towards her. She had a graze on her forehead, it wasn't big but it was bleeding a lot. 

"Drake" She mumbled. 

"I'm here baby, I'm right here" 

"I think I got hit by a car"

"I know, munchkin" She tried to sit up but pain rushed through her and she gave up. 

"Can I have an ambulance please?" He heard a voice behind him say.

He kept talking to her making sure she wouldn't slip into unconsciousness. The sirens from the ambulance sound started to get louder. "I love you too, Nicki" He whispered to her.

At least 5 comments cause they have really been slacking recently.

Young Adults

Drake walked into his bedroom, throwing down his bag. Looking at his bed, he noticed there was a figure under his sheets. He chuckled lightly to himself then took off his shirt and jeans and wiggled his way under the sheets. His head popped up from under and so did hers.

"Am I going to come home to this everyday?"

"Maybe... If you're lucky" He grabbed her ass and pulled her closer to him. She looked at him with lustful eyes. The door swung open with a big bang. 

"Oh shit" His roommate, Matt, burst into the room.

"What do you want?" Drake turned his attention to the intruder. 

"I can't remember but can I join?" He wiggled his eyebrows.

"Get the fuck out of here" Dodging the pillow, Matt closed the door laughing.

"We should have let him you know, I've always wanted to have a threesome plus he looks like he has a big dick"

"Are you serious?" Drake looked at her like 'what the fuck'. 

"Of course not, I can only take one at a time" He couldn't stay mad at her so he had to laugh at her comment. 

"You still got me horny though" 

"Don't worry big boy. You'll still get it, just not here so get dressed" 

Nicki held his hand as they walked down the stairs and headed for the kitchen. 

"Are you here to say you agree to the threesome?"

"You wish"

"My record is 10 minutes"

"That's not what I heard, I got told you last 6 seconds"

"I heard you're a squirter" 

"Who said that's a bad thing?" 

"Okay, that's enough" Drake dragged Nicki out of the house before things went any further. 

"Yours?"

"Nope. We couldn't even have a quickie, I've got family over and they're literally everywhere but I've got somewhere we can go" 




Nicki unlocked the door and let Drake in. Drake was amazed by the decorations, there was nothing cheap in sight.

"This place is nice, whose place is it?"

"Does it matter? We have the place for two days if you want to be here that long" 

"The things we could do in two days" Drake wondered around the apartment while Nicki tried to turn on the TV.  

"This remote has everything on it" She said to herself. 

"What the hell is this?" She pressed a button and two speakers popped out from the floor. 

"Please be the TV" She pressed another button and she suddenly felt the sun shining on her. "What the hell" Looking up, she saw that the ceiling had a sunroof. "I'll close that" Drake soon walked back into the room and flopped down on the couch.

"Finally" She exclaimed when the TV finally turned on and turned to look at him. Flicking through the channels, nothing interesting was on. "Still want it?"

"Not saying no to that" 

Nicki unbuckled the belt from her dress and threw it across the room. Drake followed suit taking off his shirt and doing the same. He felt himself stiffen at the sight of her just in her naked glory. She put her hands on his knees and kissed down his chest crouching down as she got to the lower part of his chest and was on her knees. She stripped him of his pants and boxers. Firmly grabbing him, she moved her hand back and forth.

"Not yet" She whispered seeing him squint his eyes. "And if you get it in my eye like last time, I will not hesitate to cut your dick off" She sped up the movement of her hands and he groaned.

"Shit" He squeezed his eyes shut and she felt him shoot out all over her chest and stomach.

"Look at the mess you made" She dragged her finger up her chest, wrapping the liquid around her finger and licking it clean. Drake stared at her in disbelief. 

"You taste good" Getting another finger full, Nicki sucked it off making a pop sound. The sight was making him want to cum all over her again. Once she had cleaned herself up, Drake stood up and threw her over her shoulder. Since he had taken a tour of the house already, he knew where the bedroom was. He put her down in front of the mirror. She looked at her reflection in the mirror seeing his hand making his way up to her thigh.

"My turn" He inserted two fingers making her to gasp and took his thumb rubbing her slowly. Nicki squeezed her eyes shut"Look at yourself" Keeping his eyes on only their reflections, he watched her face screw up.

"I want you to look at that mirror and see what I'm doing to you" Noticing she was about to peak, Drake pulled out his fingers and ran them up and down her folds. "Look" She watched him as intensively as she could. He moved his fingers like he had before with his thumb still working her but at a faster pace.

"That's it" He said feeling her grind against his fingers. Her face flushed while she moaned. Satisfaction on his face and his golden eyes twinkling. "Look at how good you look" She saw her legs with his hand in-between and his eyes looking at her. 

"Drake" She shouted throwing her head back. Her muscles pulsed around his fingers. She clutched onto his arm digging in her nails, she would have fallen if he hadn't been holding onto her. Her body shook as her orgasm took over and a soft whimper escaped her lips when it was over. The mirror showed her Drake bringing his glossed fingers to his lips and sucking. "Delicious" 

Nicki turned around and backed him up until he couldn't move anymore given that the bed was behind him. With a slight push, Drake fell back onto the bed. 


"Go back" Drake sat just a little in front of the headboard and Nicki crawled towards him. Keeping eye contact, she eased down onto him. She held on his lower thighs rolling her hips. Getting used to him, she began to bounce. Drake had the perfect view. Bending over, Nicki popped her ass and Drake slapped it, hard. Having enough of not being in control, Drake sat up and flipped them over. 

His hands above her head and hers on his back. He rolled his hips back and forth, each movement hitting her slow and deep. The burning sensation in her stomach was getting more intense. Foreheads touching, she hooked her ankles over his legs pulling him closer to her.

"I'm so close" Working fast, Drake gave her hard, long strokes causing her eyes to roll back. Sweat started to build on their bodies the faster they worked. "Jesus!" She opened her mouth to scream out but with the lack of energy it was quiet but came out eventually as she came. He soon came too, pulling out just in time.

"Turn over" Drake smacked her ass cheek and all Nicki did was look at him. "I said, turn over" He smacked her cheek even harder and she moaned rolling over. He grabbed her cheeks massaging them then ran his hands down her body and kissed the middle of her back then licked up to her shoulder blades biting them. "Ready?"

"I think" Grabbing her hair and twisting it into a ponytail, he thrust. Going faster, he let go of her hair and held onto her waist. Nicki moved her hair to the side and bit her lip as she threw it back. He loved the sound of his balls smacking against her cheeks along with her angelic moans. His hands coming into contact with her cheeks after every stroke was sending her over the edge.  

"Aub-fucking-brey"

~

Her phone buzzed in her pocket. "Hello?"

"Nicki what the fuck! Why is there spunk in my bed? I told you to babysit my house not try to make babies there!"


I couldn't think of a better title for this. It was supposed to be funny and kinda sexual but yeah.

Because I Care [Part 2]

Nicki: Where are we going again?

Nicki sent a quick text to Drake as she looked through her wardrobe for something to wear. Putting shirts up against her body in the mirror seeing how they looked like. This was technically going to be her first high school party and she wanted to dress to impress. 

Drake: A party, it's on the beach.

"Looks like I'm not wearing jeans after all" She said to herself. 

Nicki: Oh right thanks, we're not getting wet right?

She went back into her wardrobe looking for some appropriate clothes. Shorts were a must, but she didn't know if a bikini top would be too much. 

Drake: Not unless you want to ;)

Nicki: Nope, once my hair gets wet it's a disaster.

Finally deciding on a simple outfit: A black bralet, denim shorts, a floral kimono and grey low cut converses. Nicki spread them on her bed and checked the time. 5:26 p.m. Meaning she only had 30 minutes to get ready. She had already showered so all she had to wore out was her hair. It had been in a bun all day so there was 99 percent chance it would not be straight anymore. She decided to straighten it so it would flow nicely down her back. Nails done, hair done, everything did and she was ready. Just in time because Drake knocked on her front door.

"Hey" She smiled and he smiled back.

"Ready to go?" After a simple nod, they made their way to his car.

 

"Don't be nervous, they're all really nice" Drake led the way to the party. Everyone seems to be having a good time, drinking and dancing. He went straight over to where the drinks were. He poured himself a drink and was about to pour Nicki one when she stopped him.

"I don't drink"

"You don't have to drink it, just hold it in your hand" She took the solo cup out of his hand.

"Since we both have drinks, we can socialise" After walking around for a bit, he spotted some people he thought Nicki would be able to talk to. 

"Hey Cassie"

"What's up?"

"This is Nicki, you might know her" Cassie put her hand out for Nicki to shake and she did. Drake looked around and spotted his ex-girlfriend looking fine. Her long wavy black hair in a bun and a bikini that showed off all her assets. Unknowingly to him, she had seen him come to the party with Nicki. "Would you mind keeping her company for a minute?"

"Sure" Drake walked over to his ex and tapped her on the shoulder. "Have we met before? I'm Drake"

"I know who you are but I'm kind of busy, can we you know talk later?"

"She'll still be here and I'll only take a few seconds"

"I'll be back in a minute" They walked away from the girl taking a stroll along the beach back to the drinks. 

"So how you been?" Drake asked, grabbing another two cups disposing his now empty one on the floor. 

"Good... You?"

"Been better, so what do you want?"

"I'll just have a beer" Drake grabbed one of the ports from the keg pouring some into the cup. "I miss you, Rih" He looked up from pouring the drink and looked at her. Not just any look, the look she knew all too well.

"Don't"

"Don't what?"

"Look at me like that. We can't go there again and you know that. I'm with someone else now"

"But you forgot all about him the other day though?"

Drake: Hey beautiful
Rih: Hello...
Drake: What you doing?
Rih: Nothing...
Drake: Wanna chill? 
Rih: Yeah, come over 

Rihanna reached over to open her top draw. She moved the papers out of the way until she found her sewing kit box, the place where she kept her weed. She quickly rolled the blunt and placed it in her mouth while lighting it. She breathed in feeling the smoke fill up her lungs before blowing it out. She repeated the action while a voice was heard.

"What do you think you're doing?"

"What does it look like?" Drake shook his head at her, closed her door and laid down next to her. 

She rest her head on his lap as he gently stroked her hair. She pulled the blunt from her lips and tilted her head up exhaling, blowing a cloud of smoke above their heads. He took it out of her hand and took a long drag. 

"Close your eyes and open your mouth" Drake looked down and saw her with her eyes closed, he blew the smoke into her mouth letting the smoke escape from his mouth and enter hers. She blew all of it in his face.

"That's not funny" Drake slightly coughed wafting away the smoke and she giggled. They took turns passing the blunt. She stared at him with pure lust as he took a hit. In quick movement, Rihanna pulled the blunt from his lips and straddled him, he exhaled causing her to get lost in the cloud. She reappeared and kissed him biting his bottom lip. She released it slowly before kissing him again. His hands rested on her ass and he rubbed it up and down. He slowly moved his hands and pulled down the back of her thong. Rihanna lifted her hips so he could get them fully off and when he did, she pushed him back forcefully. She slowly lowered herself down onto him. She began to rock her hips back and forth keeping her hands on his chest. She lifted herself up leaving just his tip covered before slamming down. After repeating that a few times, she went back to grinding on him. His hands on her hips as her hips swiveled around.

"Jesus Drake! I wanted to fuck and you practically offered"

"What?!" 

"We both know what chilling mean so miss me with that shit!"

"What going on here?" Rihanna found the source of the voice and smiled. "Nothing baby"

"Drake, this is Chris. Chris, this is Drake" Chris was about the same height as him and was less muscly and skinny. But nevertheless, he could see why Rihanna went for him.

Chris looked at him and turned to Rihanna. "So I'm about ready to go. You still riding with me?"

"Yeah"

"Well let's go" Chris walked away with Rihanna following behind him holding his hand. "It was nice to see you Drake" She said turning around.

"You too" Drake downed the drink he poured for himself and threw away the one he poured her leaving the cup on the floor. 

He looked around noticed he was alone. Everyone was with someone or a group of people even Nicki had found a new bunch of friends. It was really setting in that he didn't have any true friends except Isaac. At parties, everyone loved him and wanted to be his friend but outside of the party they wanted nothing to do with him other than bring up memories from the party. Sighing, he poured himself another drink and walked back over to Nicki. 

"I see you're having fun" He whispered into her ear. 

"So much" 

"I'm going for a walk, want to join?" 

"I would love to" She took a sip of her drink. "It was nice meeting you guys, hopefully I'll see you again" 

"You will!" She waved and followed Drake's lead.  They ended up a fair distance away from the party and sat down on the shore. 

"Can I try some?" She said referring to the flask in his hand. 

"I thought you didn't drink"

"Well I'm at a party so I might as well plus I just drank whatever was in my cup before so what's this one going to do?"

"Alright" Drake handed the flask to her and she took a large gulp. She instantly pulled a sour face. Holding the flask away from her face.

"What is in that? It's really strong"

"Whiskey"

"Woah. How do you drink that?"

"I don't know, I've become immune to the taste" Nicki nodded and took another gulp before giving it back to him. 

"Ah I guess it's not that bad. I just realised this will be first and last high school party"

"Nah, every party I go to you're coming with me"

"We'll see, this is not really my scene"

"You need to live a little. You'll be a hardcore party-goer when I'm done with you"

"I don't think so, books are way more interesting than parties"

"By the end of tonight, you'll be asking me when the next party is"

"You wish. All the people here are popular and known by everyone and there's me, the outcast"

"That may be true but I can teach you my ways"

"Your ways?"

Drake nodded. "Starting with swearing"

"Oh no, I don't swear"

"Everyone swears. Just try it, say fuck"

"Just the word or a sentence?"

"Hmm... Say what the fuck"

"What the eff"

Drake looked at her funny. "Not eff, fuck"

Nicki took a deep breath preparing herself.  "Fuck"

"Yes, now shout it"

"Fuck!" She screamed.

"Good job" Drake put his hand up for her to high-five him and she did. "Step one is complete, we'll start step two later"

"I never told you but you look really nice tonight"

"Thanks" She blushed.

"I think the boys you were talking to did too"

"We were just talking"

"I know them and they don't just talk to any girl"

"Shut up, don't get my hopes up"

"What? They were definitely checking you out"

She laughed at the thought "Why would they? I'm so plain"

"Nicki, you're beautiful. I don't know why you haven't noticed yet but you are absolutely stunning, it shocks me that you've never had a boyfriend"

"Me? God no. No, no," Drake cut her off with his lips, silencing her and she closed her eyes. He caught her lips and kissed her again then slowly pulled away and she reopened her eyes.

"I'm sorry" He said rubbing the back of his neck.

"Don't be, I liked it. Now let's go back to the party" She stood up and pulled him up with her.


~

Drake walked into the gym trying to be discreet about him being there. The school was having a volleyball match and the girls’ team was playing. He really had nothing to do and he needed something to take his time off the whole Rihanna situation and everything really. He found a reasonable seat at the back. The players started to come out of the doors receiving cheers from the crowd, they interacted with the opposite team shaking their hands before standing in their positions. The game went on and the home team were winning by 4 points. Throughout the match, Drake had his eye on one player. Player number 7. He never got a glimpse of her face but he couldn't keep his eyes off of her.

The buzzer soon went off announcing the end of the game. The home team ended up winning by 9 points with player number 7 scoring the second to last point. 

Drake waited till most of the crowd had gone and the players were packing up their things. He ran down the stairs and walked behind number 7 tapping her on the shoulder. She turned around in a flash. "Drake?"

"Nicki? Why didn't you tell me you played volleyball?" The girl he had been staring at was the one girl just a few weeks ago knew nothing about and now he was intrigued by her.

"It wasn't important, it's just something I like to do" She put the other bag strap onto her shoulder. 

"Since I'm here, want to go out to celebrate the win?" 

"My legs kind of hurt. Long match and all"

"Get on my back" 

"What? No" 

Drake crouched down in front of her. "I'm offering so come on" Nicki jumped onto his back and he held his arms around her leg pulling her up some more and she wrapped her arms around his shoulders. He pushed the door open and continued walking through the school. 

"There's an ice cream parlour nearby, want to go for one? My treat"

"Hmm I do love ice cream and you're offering, can't turn down an offer like that" The ice cream parlour came into their view after an half an hour walk. He waited until he got inside the parlour to put her down and just before he did she pressed her lips against his neck as a thank you. 

"So which one do you fancy?" She was staring at the different flavours looking rather fascinated. 

"Daim bar crunch please"

"Can I have a daim bar crunch and a rum and raisin?" The server nodded and went to get their cones. Drake paid for them and they headed out of the shop. 

"Why do you hang out with me?" Nicki asked taking another lick of her ice cream. 

"Because I think you're cool and" He stopped speaking.

"And what?" 

"I like you" Nicki stopped eating her ice cream abruptly. 

"You like me?" Drake stood still. That was the first time he had admitted it. He knew she was great company but after the party and everything he saw her in a different light. 

"Yeah" 

"I like you too"

Because I Care [Part 1]

"Hello?"

"Are you okay?"

"Should I get someone?" 

Slowly coming around, he put his hand to his head and mumbled the word 'fuck'. He did not know where he was or who the girl was talking to him. The last thing he remembered was being at a party, drinking wildly, jumping into a pool, feeling super horny and having the best sex with his girlfriend. Seeing that he was coming around, the girl moved away from him giving him some space.

"I'm fine, just a little fucked up" He tried to get up off the front lawn. The girl put her hand on her chest grateful that she did not discover a dead man. "Do you know where I am?"

"Yeah. We're on Springer Street. Wait, don't I know you?" The girl squinted her eyes at him slightly before speaking again. "You're Drake Graham right?"

"Yeah yeah, and you are?" Drake sat up and rubbed his eyes.

"Nicki, we go to the same school"

"Oh right, what are you doing here?"

"Working, I deliver newspapers"

"Hmm do you know how I got here?"

"Sorry no, I just found you here passed out or sleeping, one of those. Do you want a lift home?" Nicki put her hand out to help him but he tried to get up himself. Finally getting himself up, Drake brushed himself off. 

"No but can I tag along with you? You helped me so why don't I help you"

"I mean erm... If you want to. I uh normally drive while I do it so, that's my car there. Just hop in" Nicki pointed to the grey pickup truck just across from them.  

"You do know they are supposed to reach the actual house right?" She laughed as Drake threw a newspaper and it landed in the middle of the person's garden.

"I knew that" Drake lied and Nicki shook her head. After some more failed attempts, Drake's aim got better and the newspapers landed closer to the houses.

"See all it took was a little practice" 

"You're pretty cool Nicki, did you know that?"

"No not really but thanks"

"We should hang out again"

"I'm free tomorrow, we can do something then?"

"I would like that" Nicki smiled to herself and kept her eyes on the road.

"Sorry I'm late. My mum was bugging me about how I don't do enough around the house and then my car wouldn't start and,"

"It's okay, sit down. Are you hungry?"

"No, I'm fine. So what do you want to talk about?"

"Whatever you want to" Nicki bit her lip thinking about something to talk about and found herself gazing out of the window. Drake looked at her in awe, he could tell she was really thinking. "How we tell stories about ourselves?"

"Um yeah, you go first"

"So I used to live in Canada 'cause I was born there, anyway it's like winter every day there so one day it was snowing badly but I love snow so I didn't bother me. Me and my friend were outside having a snow ball fight and I made a really big snowball, he wasn't ready for it and it hit it so hard in the face. Knocked the life straight out of him"

"He died?!"

"No no no just knocked him out and when he came back around, he asked me who was winning"

"Wow. So he didn't know he was unconscious?" Drake shook his head with a slight smirk on his face.  "That's pretty funny"

"It was. So what's your story?"

Nicki shrugged. “Umm I don't know"

"Come on, you must have at least one story"

"Remember that time we had to do assignment on things we would change in the world and you wrote a whole speech on how we should be free to fart whenever we want" She giggled.

"Yeah, that was funny" Their laughter soon died down. "What about you? Don't you have any stories?"

"No, I'm boring"

"Come on, everyone has at least one story"

"Not me" She glanced down at her phone and saw the time. "Dammit I've got to go" She picked up her bag and scooted off of the chair. 

He gently touched her hand stopping her. "Wait, you're in Mr. Johnson's class for Chemistry right?"

"Yeah"

"That means you're smart, am I right?"

"I wouldn't say that but I do well, why?"

"Can you tutor me? It's okay if it's not convenient for you but Mr. Hyde is on my case because I'm what you call 'failing'"

"No it's fine, where should we study?"

"I'm not bothered"

"We can do it at mine, I mean do chemistry not the other thing" He had to laugh at her rephrasing her sentence. "I've really got to go but I'll text you my address" She pulled out an old receipt from her purse and quickly scribbled down her number sliding it across the table.

"Thanks, see you soon?"

"Sure sure, bye" She smiled at him before turning around and walking towards the exit of the cafe.

"Dude where was you the other night? Mason had this party and it was off the chain. Everyone was smashed and I got some action" Isaac, his best friend, said.

"Good for you man but I had something to handle"

"Something big enough for you Drake Graham to miss a party?"

"Yeah, that big" He laughed and saw Nicki at her locker. "I'll catch up with you later"

Drake snuck up behind her. "Hey"

"Jeez, you scared me"

"I was just wondering if we could meet up tonight, I got some chem homework that I know nothing about"

"I'm not busy tonight so we can meet at mine, you have my address right?"

"Yeah, what time?"

"Anytime after 4, gives me a little time to clean my room"

"Alright, see you tonight then"


"I'm coming! Hold on!" Nicki pulled her hair back into a ponytail then ran to answer the door. 

"I didn't know it was you, I'm sorry. It's four already? Well come in"' She opened the door wider and stepped to the side to let him in. "It's just us so we can do whatever, I thought I would tell you but it's only till about 6 but we can't do much since you're a boy and my mum would disapprove. Not of you being here but of me being alone with you, not that I would do anything other than school work with you but it's the whole boy girl sex business. I'm a virgin like total virgin, I have never done oral or anything like that. I've never had a boyfriend so that sort of explains that so yeah. What was I talking about again?" Drake stared at her in disbelief, not because she was a virgin but that she hadn't had a boyfriend and the fact she told him about her non-existent sex life in a ramble about being home alone which was strange.

"Us being alone?" 

"Oh yeah. So only till 6 but we should be finished by then so it shouldn't matter so want to get started?"

"Yeah"

About an hour later, Nicki had taught Drake the basics of chemistry and he was getting the hang of it. 

"So whenever you mix an acid with a solution, water is made too?"

"Yep and that happens with every reaction like that, they're called exothermic reactions"

"Oh right, thanks" He went back to finishing the sheet. "I've finished" 

"Oh good, do you want me to walk you out?"

"Nah it's fine but thanks again" Drake picked up his sheet and put in his bag-pack. "Oh, are you busy on Saturday?" 

"Nope" 

"Well there's this party and I wondered if you wanted to go with me, what do you say?" 

"If you really want me to, I will. I would love to"

Inspired by the spectacular now.
