College life 16
After taking my two tests and sitting through art class again with Hayden
and Reilly, I headed back to the dorm. Being a Friday, Scott was eager to
swim again. It didn’t matter to me for I was glad the week was done. We
all headed to the rec center. As soon as we hit the door, Corey found us.
“Dudes, I’m off at 8, so whatever you do don’t leave me,” Corey said.
“The parties usually don’t get going until then, we’ll wait,” Kris said.
“Thanks, I’ll see ya then,” Corey said.
Scott and I walked back to the pool area and found it to be rather vacant.
“Matt, will you be able to handle Corey tonight?” Scott asked.
“I hope so,” I stated.
We dove right in the warm water. We did our laps and a slow pace, which
was weird for Scott.
We exited the pools and showered before the others
finished working out. We didn’t have to wait since Scott and I rode in
“You wanna get high?” Scott asked me.
“Oh hell yeah, I do. My tests are finished. My ass is ready to party,” I
said with great excitement.
He drove us to place where we lit up. The intoxicating smoke filled my
body and felt great.
I was feeling no pain when I entered the room with
Kris, Colt and Jess hanging around.
“Dude, your fucking ass is high as shit,” Colt said to me.
“Damn right it is,” I said and went to lie on my bed.
“That’s my boy right there. Scott said he wanted to get your ass high. My
boy studied his little ass off all week and needs a good party weekend,”
“We all need a good party weekend,” Jess stated.
“Matt has one great start. It’s not for me but hey I know my ass will be
so d***k by the end of the night,” Colt said.
With me soaking in what they said and coming down, we talked a big talk
about both nights. Kris’s plans as he put them were to hang with us
tonight and tomorrow night go out with all the girls.
We agreed it should
be a guy’s night even though Colt now had a girl thanks to Liz.
Before partying, we got some food in our systems. We ate here and wanted
to conserve our cash for tomorrow night. Our group was large as it had
ever been. This night after we ate, we headed back to the dorm. Once
inside, I grabbed my camera to take pictures of us all hanging out and
having a good time.
About seven, Rick, our RA, came to the door to see what was going on.
“Just checking things out,” Rick stated.
“We’re chilling,” Kris commented.
“Guys make damn sure you don’t overdo it tonight or tomorrow night.
They’re on my ass about this weekend,” Rick stated. “I may have to write
some of you up just to show I’m doing my job. “
“Dude, what the fuck?” Jess screamed.
“They think I’m letting all of you off too easy,” Rick replied. “If you do
get written up, I’ll take care of it. “
“You better,” Colt said.
“I’ve been pretty lax around you, so one weekend won’t hurt you. If you
have any girls or are d***k tonight, I have to write you up,” Rick stated.
“Hell dude, start writing,” Kris laughed. “All of us except the ones
driving are getting wasted.
“Come on dude, go easy on us,” Jess said. “You know we love you and you
love us. “
“Hey I have to or else you’ll have a new RA next year,” Rick said. “Every
time they ask me how come I don’t write guys up. “
“Just start writing up the dipshits like Wyatt and those guys,” Scott said.
“Then I’d seem biased. I said I’d take care of them.
Trust me, I will
take care of them,” Rick said. “Just as I took care of Kris when he busted
Lee’s chops. “
“Shit, go ahead and write my ass up. Tonight I’ll be so d***k I won’t know
what you are doing,” Kris laughed.
Rick laughed, “There will be a slip under your door then after you guys
leave. Just be careful out there. The cops will be thick tonight and
You got my number if you need me, too. “
“Before you leave, could I get you to take a few pictures of us?” I asked.
Rick laughed again, “Sure, what the hell. ” He snapped a few pictures of us
“What a fucking prick!” Jess said.
“Come to my hall. Our RA is a fucking asshole,” Kendall stated.
“Mine too,” Alex said.
Alex had joined right in with us like Colt had. He
was so cute with curly blond hair and was nicely built, not too big with
some really cut abs and just over six foot tall. He was Kris’s friend from
a class they had together and asked Kris if he worked out. Kris just
invited him along a few days ago and has been around ever since.
I tried my best count how many of us were there but never could quite get a
It figured there were ten of us at the least with us still waiting
on Corey. It was loud as it had ever been even after the little downer.
When Corey finally did appear, right after eight like he said he would, we
divided up. Jess was gracious enough to be a DD as was Corey. Just as we
were heading out, Stephan saw us walking down the hall. He asked where we
We told him.
“I wish I could go,” Stephan said so quietly.
“You can go if you can drive,” Kris stated.
“I’ll drive no problem. It’ll be fun hanging with all you hotties,”
Stephan said. “Give me a minute to freshen up. “
We had to fill the other guys in on Stephan. They weren’t too happy but no
one wanted to be left out. Now we had three cars going and more room.
About the only regular who wasn’t with us was Michael. Corey said
something about how he had a date. They laughed and commented if the girl
was literally blind. Corey had seen her and gave a description of her as
being short, long brown hair yet not really cute and pudgy. They all
agreed she fit Michael perfectly.
My ride for the night was Stephan. They threw me, Scott and Hayden in with
him since we were alike.
I didn’t mind that much but hated Stephan’s
driving. He had a way of moving his hands while he talked to us that had
my ass scared to death. We about missed the road to turn to head to the
first party but we made it all in one piece. The place was nice and out a
little way from the city and campus. I don’t know Kris or any of the
others knew about this place but they did.
We jumped out and walked inside the old house. We were barely inside when
Jess spotted someone he knew, followed by Juan. The next thing I heard was
`Drink up, guys’. It didn’t take much encouragement for me after being
stressed out all week. Sure the little thing with Scott was nice but I was
ready and aching for more. Kris came back with one of those red plastic
cups for me and him.
“Dude, this is going to fucking sick!” Kris screamed. “Matt, are you with
I clanked our cups, “I’m with you, Roomie. ” I took a drink and could see
it wouldn’t take many of these to get feeling forgetting about everything
else in the world. I saw a guy Kris and I knew from our history class and
spoke with him briefly. By now, all of my friends that I had come with
were all of over the place.
After grabbing another glass, I headed outside to a big bond fire that had
blazing. That wasn’t all that was blazing. I saw Scott and Hayden toking
it up with all kinds of people. I felt a tap on my shoulder and turned to
see Corey standing there.
“Having fun yet?” he asked.
“Sure, I came here to have fun,” I replied. “Are you?”
“As much fun as one guy can have that is not drinking,” Corey replied.
“Matt, I really wish I could get so hammered but I know I can’t. “
“I’m sorry, Corey. I know it’s hard with everyone else drinking. Thanks
for volunteering to drive for us. Surely tomorrow, someone won’t want do
this again,” I said and laughed. “Corey, you know me. That someone will
probably be me. “
“I suppose I should be happy to be back in the mix. It sucks working…”
“You said you had to do it.
“I know but it can still suck. “
“Corey to make you feel better, you really haven’t missed a whole lot so
far,” I stated with Kris and Colt walking up.
“Killer party, huh?” Colt shouted.
“I guess if you’re drinking it is,” Corey replied.
Colt evidentially was well on his way to being d***k. He threw his arm
around Corey’s broad shoulders. “Matt, when are you two hooking back up?
Corey’s really a good guy.
“Drop it, Colt,” Kris said. “I don’t ever see that day. “
I turned and walked away. My next mission was to find a bathroom. I
headed inside and found one to relieve the drinks I had been downing. I
walked out and saw Stephan lip locked with this guy. I shook my head and
continued walking to find another drink.
While standing alone and digesting everything that was happening, this girl
came up and threw herself on me.
“God you are just the cutest thing here,”
“Thanks,” I said and moved her off me. It was my luck for Jess and Robert
to witness that little quick scene.
“Dude, I’d been all over that shit right there,” Robert said.
“It’s Matt we’re talking to, dumbass,” Jess said. “See all the girls you
could have if you weren’t gay. “
“Just my luck,” I laughed with Juan walking up as well.
They told Juan
what was going down. He didn’t seem to have a problem not drinking and was
enjoying everything that was happening. I grabbed a seat with Juan and did
some great people watching while downing my drink.
“This is the life, huh?” Juan asked.
“I guess this is what all envisioned college to be like,” I said and was
really starting to feel the strong drinks in my body.
“Matt, it has been such a blast though. I’d be crazy if I hadn’t met all
y’all. I do miss home a little but not near as much I thought I would. I
know my grandma really misses seeing me but she has other worries besides
me,” Juan stated.
“Juan, do you ever see your Mom?” I asked.
“Sometimes, when I can stand to be around here. I got lucky Matt in that
my grandma saw that Mom was shit… pure shit…” Juan replied.
“I hate to hear that but someone did care and love for you enough though,”
Juan smiled, “Yes, she did. My grandma is the greatest just like your Mom.
I don’t how they put up with all the stuff but they do. “
“Because they love us and want the best for us,” I said.
We stayed around the party until Jess and Kris were ready to leave.
feeling no pain and knew I had had too many. The worst part was trying to
find Stephan. He hated to leave the party but he was glad he came. Once
we got in the car, Scott and Hayden smelled of smoke from the fire and were
higher than a kite.
The next party we went to was closer to campus but less crowded but more
were still coming in.
It was going strong when we arrived at no telling
what time. We headed inside to continue. We all knew more people at this
one and really seemed like our crowd. Once inside for a few minutes, I saw
why we were there. Kris and Colt’s girls were there as well. Colt’s girl
was named Monica. She was kind of small, very cute with a huge rack, I
must say. I have no idea if it was real or not but Colt didn’t seem to
Kris kept the drinks flowing my way with music blaring all
through the place. Soon, there was dancing in the crowded place with me
right in the middle dancing with whoever was around. I was really feeling
The next thing I knew I was outside and puking my guts up. I thought I had
escaped alone and c 1000 ould play it off. I felt a hand.
“Are you okay, Matt?” I heard Corey’s voice.
“Maybe,” I said before expelling more onto the ground.
“No, you are not okay. I’m taking you back to the dorm,” Corey said.
“I’m fine, Corey,” I said.
“Matt, I’m not going to let you get so d***k you get very sick,” Corey
said. “Matt, I care for you deeply. ” He went inside to find a wet paper
towel to clean off my mouth.
“Thanks, Corey,” I said.
I leaned forward and kissed him on the lips.
Corey back up and looked at me, “Damn, you are really d***k tonight. “
I kissed him again. “I must be so fucking d***k, Corey. ” I took a seat and
started crying right there. “Corey, I’m sorry for all the shit I’ve put
you through. I really am such an asshole. Corey, I still love you if you
want the truth.
Corey grabbed me and kissed me. He held me close so I didn’t do anything
stupid at that moment.
“Here they are,” Jess said.
“He’s really wasted,” Corey said. “I’m taking him back to the dorm before
he gets really sick. “
I didn’t argue and got up. There were a few others ready to call it a
night as well. We found Stephan to tell him we were going.
I don’t know
who went with us but it didn’t matter. My night was done plus my dam had
Back at the dorm, Corey made sure I made it to my room. We were barely
there when I bolted out of the room and just made it to the bathroom. It
was one of the advantages to having the bathroom close.
I returned with Corey waiting on me. He wiped off my mouth again.
and lay on my bed with my head spinning out of control. “Corey, you can
leave now. I’ll be fine. “
“No Matt, I’m not leaving you for one second. I love you too much to let
anything happen to you right now,” Corey said.
“Corey, I meant what I said earlier. “
“Matt, sober up and we can talk about it tomorrow. “
“I did this so I could grow… some balls, Corey.
I didn’t want to come
down to your room… and say hey, I love you still and ready to give
it… one more shot,” I said.
Corey moved over and grabbed me. I was so d***k but knew his strong arms
felt so good. He kissed me and held me close.
I woke the next morning with Kris and Liz in bed next to me. I shook my
head a few times and wondered what the hell was really going on.
I saw it
was past ten in the morning. I quietly headed to the bathroom still fully
dressed to take a leak. I came back inside and downed some Tylenol with my
head feeling the pain of my drinking. I quietly got back into bed. I
could smell Corey’s cologne on my sheets. I was now ready for the war to
be over. I was much happier with Corey than anyone else. Despite what he
had done, which was awful, I was willing to give one last shot.
time to get things back to where they were and be with a guy who loved me
and not hoping that I could find someone else that would love me.
Liz got up about eleven and left the room. About twenty minutes later,
Kris woke up. He shook his long blond hair and headed to the bathroom.
Like me, he grabbed the Tylenol and downed them.
Kris saw I was awake.
“Matt, we tore that shit up last night, huh?”
“We did and I’m feeling it right now,” I replied.
“Was I so d***k or did I see Corey in here last night in bed with you?” he
I took a deep breath, “Kris, you were right. I was happier than ever with
Corey. Dude, I still fucking love him. ” I 914 started crying right there.
Kris moved over to me, “It’s okay Matt.
So is everything back to normal?”
“Not just yet but it’s getting there,” I said.
“Matt, I have no problem whatsoever if you get back with Corey. I want you
to do what you think is right and what makes you happy. If being with
Corey makes you happy, go for it…”
“I am but he’ll be on such a short leash this time,” I stated.
“Then go get him a dog collar,” Kris joked.
“Oh fuck! It hurts to laugh but
damn did we have a good time!”
“We sure did!” I said.
