Generation 8, Chapter 2 : You can't blame yourself for who you're attracted to...


 It had already been three months since we arrived at University and going to class at 6AM every morning seemed pretty easy by now, mostly probably because I'm a morning person. I later found out Janet took Fine Arts as a major just like me, which was even better, you know, having a friend in my classes every day!


Ceallach slowly climbed up the social ladder in the Campus and with him being the 'Nerdy' type, people found it hard to believe that we were brother and sister... Of course I never denied him at all, he may be a nerd but he's my brother!


''Fancy going for a swim Stell?'' Janet asked me as we hurried out the classroom doors before we were pushed out of them!

''Sure, I actually haven't been to the swimming pool on campus since I got here, might as well check it out!'' I replied.


Surprisingly, once we got there, all suited up in our bikinis the place was pretty empty, with only just a few of the typical competitive swimmers racing to and from each pool wall.

''Don't you these are slightly - er - revealing?'' I questioned Janet, fixing the loose strap.

''No, not at all! And if that Andrew fella is here, even better for you!'' She replied, winking at me.

''Very funny Janet, very funny!'' I knew Janet was up to something, she had never just randomly invited me out somewhere... there was always a catch!


It wasn't long before I jumped into the pool alongside Janet and like little kids, all we done was splash each other! Suddenly she coughed and widened her eyes at me, trying to tell me something...

''What Janet!?'' I asked her.

''Look behind you!'' She whispered. I moved slowly in the water and guess who I say; Andrew, flexing his muscles!

''Oh shit... You see what you've done Janet!'' I blamed her, as he began to notice we were in the pool.


''Fancy seeing you here aye!'' Andrew said, coughing to draw my attention to his abs.

''Er - Yeah, fancy seeing me here ... Thanks to you Janet.'' I muttered under my breath.

''So, do you like my abs Stella?'' He asked, flexing once more.

I couldn't help but become all flirty once again at the sight of his big... bulky... abs! ''Why yes, I really do...'' I said, almost in a trance looking at them.


''So what are you doing here anyway?'' I asked him, once he put down his abs.

''Oh - er - your friend, Janet invited me... she said you asked if I'd come...'' He admitted, awkwardly lookign at Janet.

''Janet! For god sake I knew this all down to you!'' I said, screwing her again. She winked at me and suddenly I thought hey, maybe this wasn't such a bad idea!

''But thank you...'' I whispered and winked to her.


''So, now that I'm here anyway, what shall we do?'' He asked me.

''Well, you can show off your abs some if you like, I'm just going to take a little nap!'' I replied, winking at him as I walked towards the Loungers.

''Fine... if you say so...'' He also replied, winking back at me.


I was deep in sleep and I couldn't heard a thing, except the occasional laughter from Janet and her reading her Gossip Magazines.

''Wakey wakey bright eyes, wakey wakey...'' I heard someone hiss from the side of my head.

''G-Go away, I'm trying to sleep!'' I shouted at Andrew, flicking his head.


''You just can't get enough of me, can't you!?'' I asked him, jumping up from my lounger.

''I don't know you know, you tell me why I am!'' He said to me, winking at me and then widening his eyes as Janet walked towards us.

''Well, let's think... You may either be a crazy stalker or you might just like me, which one is right?'' I asked him.

''Well I got to think about that one, can I get back to you?'' He asked me, before I could answer Janet pushed in front of me and butted in.

''Yes, you can get back to her because we're leaving now, goodbye!'' She said, escorting me away from Andrew.



''Janet, what the hell!?'' I asked her as we continued to walk away, very fast.

''Stella, he's no good for you! Just look at him, he's a clear Casanova!'' Janet assured me.

''Fine, whatever you say....''

That same evening we quickly got dressed and headed up to The Point to do some sketching needed for our Art project.

''Okay Stella tell me the truth, do you really like Andrew?'' Janet asked me, staring out into the landscape.

''Well yes... I think so, he is a clear Casanova but at the same time I just really can't resist him; I think he likes me too!'' I replied, putting down my sketchbook and slightly daydreaming about him...

''Fine, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, but honestly Stella, be careful with him...'' Janet warned me.

''I'll be fine... I promise!''

-- Ceallach's point of view --


Most boys in University would be out raving in night clubs or bowling with the Jocks, however I sat in my dorm room in front of the fire, casually scrolling through nearly all Social Networking sites.


''Alright Cel?'' Andrew said, suddenly walking in. My heart skipped at beat as he was... shirtless. His ripped body was bulky, tanned and wet, from him swimming most probably.

''Uh yeah.... I'm good....'' I said, shutting my laptop in a hast as he came closer.


''So what did you get up to today?'' I asked him as I got up from my bed.

''Nothing much, just been at the pool with your sister and her annoying best friend, You?'' He replied, and I was shocked.

Why was he with my sister? Were they on a date? Did they kiss?


''My sister; why were you with my sister? I asked him.

''Oh it wasn't a date or nothing, I just happened to meet her there!'' He explained.

''Oh okay...'' I said rubbing my head, still in confusion.


''Ceallach... I really need to tell you something.'' Andrew said to me. I suddenly started to sweat, thinking he was going to admit his attraction to me.

''Tell me what, Andrew?'' I asked him, with every single drop of hope bulging through my eyes.


''I really like your sister!'' My heart shattered in that exact moment, as it suddenly filled back up with a rage of jealously. ''She hilarious, smart and freaking beautiful! You wouldn't mind if I asked her out, would you?'' He asked me, with a similar sense of hope in his sexy, grey eyes.

''Oh.. you like my sister... Yeah sure, go ahead and ask her out... It's not like there's no one else as good as herself...'' I said to him, lowering my head in embarrassment. 

''Yeah, true!'' He replied, with all excitement bursting out of him.

He didn't like me; 

He liked my sister.

  5. Damn, Andrew is like that guy Devin I have in my story...which means he is NOT good news! *crosses fingers and hopes that Stella won't make a terrible mistake*

    I feel so bad for Ceallach (look at that face ;__;), but I do wonder why he's attracted to Andrew in the first place 'cause that guy is just an ass. O.o Anyhow, a short but nice chapter, and I'm excited to see what will unfold in the future.

    1. He is actually! O_o Awh we just have to wait and see but I doubt Stella will let him hurt her... *Crosses fingers also!*

      I know, It made him so sad when he got rejected! :( Well you know, you can't really help you're attracted to! :P

      Thank you so much, Destiny!

    2. *strokes chin* That is true I guess - I once had a crush on a guy for no real reason (at least he asked me out later on xD). Attraction, much like love, is a weird thing. ^_^
