“Yeah probs.” Mason said, cracking an awkward half smile while he twist his leg out as he leaned into Chey’s desk facing her as she sat on her bed. “Air vent is easy.” He said, pointing above Chey’s bed to the air vent close to the ceiling. “I fell out of it, onto your bed. Lucky that actually. I didn’t actually know where that came out. The vent I got in in the first place is buried inside my wall, has a crack in it, so I didn’t have to crawl up like that to get in.”
“Oh, ugh, you don’t have to…” Mason said, but it was too late. Chey had already went to get anti-septic. When she came back she started to apply the goop to his stupidly attained injury. “It’s fine.” Mason winced, “You really don’t have to be doing that, really. And yeah, I kinda sort of expected you to kick my ass. Or like, squish me that first time you sat on the bed and I was inside the pillow case.” He half smiled and ran a hand haphazardly through his hair.
“To be fair, I didn’t know it was anyone’s room, let alone your room specifically. I got bored and decided to go on an adventure. So I went inside the air vents and wandered around. You’d be amazed at the things you hear when doing that. It’s the greatest communication system in this whole school really.” Mason saw Chey didn’t really seem to care about his tangent, so he got back to the point, “But anyway, I just heard the water in the pipes and decided to follow where it was coming from, since running water normally means people. So I followed it, and just sort of plopped out here.” Mason paused for a second, and slightly raised his arms as if to defend himself. “I didn’t even see who it was until I got shook out of the pillow, I swear! I mean, I figured it was you cuz of the phone conversation you had, but, ugh, remember, you’re the one that dropped a soaking wet towel on me. I bolted right after than into the pillow. Promise I didn’t see anything, swear on crackers.”
“Why air vents, though?” She asked, raising an eyebrow. “Aren’t they all cold and air venty?” Making a face, she smiled a little bit at her ignorant comment. She looked back at his cut and sighed. “It’s fine,” she said with a soft smile, as she attempted to fix up his cut. “I’m not really good at this so, you might not want to thank me, just yet,” she teased with a soft smile. She took out a bandaid and placed it over his cut, making sure she didn’t hurt him. She placed the disinfectant onto the table before standing up straight. “I’m not that mean,” she said with a roll of her eyes.
Crossing her arms across her chest, she ran a hand through her hair. “Mm,” she murmured with a slight nod, unsure of what to say. “Okay, first of all, I was taking a shower. I didn’t know that there was going to be a mouse in my bed that would turn out to be you and secondly, you’re the one who fell into my bed, it’s not exactly polite to say the least. Considering I never invited you into my room let alone onto my bed,” raising her eyebrows she waited for a response before bursting out into a giggle. Shaking her head slightly, she smiled to herself, “I can’t believe I just said that, that doesn’t make any sense.”
