    I'm gonna love you till the sun burns out
    Love you till the sun burns out
    And I'll chase away your clouds
    Love you till the sun burns out
    Wanna hold you till the moon shuts down
    Till the stars are on the ground
    Till the end of time is found
    Love you till the sun burns out

    Rosa was on her lunch break from the new job that she had started that morning, this position was the first real teaching job that she had been offered since she received her university diploma. When she had applied for the job, she never once thought it would be offered to her. Having to move to a small town, never bothered Rosa as it meant she could begin her career as a high school science teacher, which is what she had worked hard to become. The move was stressful and so was that morning, she had been running around frantically trying to make sure she had everything for the day and make sure that Eva was set for her own first day at school. That she had completely forgotten to take any lunch with her to work, and she didn’t want to grab anything from the cafeteria in case she embarrassed her little sister in front of any potential new friends.

    She did hate uprooting Eva from the life they had been living, but Rosa knew getting hired by a decent school was becoming hard. Which is why they had moved so suddenly to Beacon Hills, it seemed to be a nice town, not that Rosa had seen much of it yet. She had driven straight to the new house, she had gone to the grocery store once and then she had driven to Beacon Hills High School that morning. When the bell rang for lunch, Rosa got into her car and drove through the street until she found a coffee shop. She brought a coffee and a sandwich before she headed back out the door, she could either eat in her car or take it back to her classroom and eat there.

    “Oh, I’m sorry.” She breathed out as she nearly crashed into a body, thankfully she didn’t spill her hot coffee on them. Looking at the person, she found a rather attractive guy standing there in front of her. Maybe Beacon Hills did have more to offer than what her friends had expected from a small town, her friends told Rosa that she was crazy for taking the job. Mostly because she wouldn’t have a social or love life in a small town, right now Rosa didn’t care about either of them. She wanted to make sure Eva was happy and safe, and she just wanted to teach.
    It was just another day at school for Liam, surprisingly things had calmed down which was nice. It was nice to not have a constant threat in Beacon Hills, although with how much his life has changed since Scott bit him, he now knew to never let his guard down. As a threat could come in any form and at any time, whether that threat targeted Scott and his pack or the innocent people of Beacon Hills. However, that day his guard had slipped when his eyes landed on a girl in his class. He hadn’t seen her before and he did learn that she was new, because the teacher made sure to tell the entire class that she was. He wanted to go introduce himself to her, but he still hadn’t found a good time and he was nervous.

    What if she told him to leave her alone? What if he stumbled over his words? What if he focused so much on impressing her and staying calm, he lost focus on his werewolf side? What if he just plainly scared her away? She was beautiful, and he desperately wanted to talk to her, he had even asked Mason if he could go talk to her first and then wave him over casually. But Mason refused, saying that he needed to make the first move if he did want to impress her.

    So, when he walked into the cafeteria and saw Eva sitting at a table on her own, he knew this was his chance. He inhaled a deep breath and walked over towards her, he tried his best to ignore the nerves in his stomach. “Hey… I’m Liam, we share some classes together. I thought I’d come and say hi… so hi.” He had to shut his mouth, he had started to babble on which is never attractive. Looking at her, he wanted to kick himself as she was clearly out of his league. But she was still new in town and she was sitting by herself, she either didn’t want company or just hadn’t made any friends yet.

    Jordan, for the most part, was making sure to keep an eye on the time. He had enough time to get a coffee and relax for a little while before he’d have to get back to patrolling for the day, and he was mostly looking forward to the time he’d get to himself. Things were constantly intense in Beacon Hills and danger never seemed too far away, but things were okay for now, and he’d learned to take the good, peaceful times while they could, before the next problem arose. He’d let himself enjoy the peace he could before things got bad again, though he’d also make sure to still maintain his serious devotion to his job as a police officer. He loved helping people, after all, and being able to save people. He liked being able to protect people. A part of him wondered if that had to do with him being a hellhound or if it was just who he was. Either way, he didn’t plan on changing it about himself - it was a trait that had always been with him, a part of him.

    He’d been looking down at the time again while he walked, distracted, only to blink when he felt somebody bump into him. His arms instinctively reached out as he grasped the young woman’s shoulders to steady her. “I’m so sorry, I wasn’t paying attention,” he quickly said, looking her over, though her paused when he realized she had coffee in her hands. “Oh, no, I didn’t make you spill the coffee, did I?” he asked with concern, worried about it burning her if he had - after all, the coffee would have been scalding hot, and he knew how much that could hurt for humans, even if it wouldn’t really bother him much. But, before he could get too lost in his concern, his eyes caught a better look at the woman when he’d lifted his gaze to look her over better, worried for her, and his worry turned into something else completely. She was gorgeous, after all, and it wasn’t hard to notice or acknowledge as much.

    For a long moment, he found himself trying to understand how somebody could be as beautiful as she was, but then he realized his hands were still on her shoulders from when he’d tried to steady her and he cleared his throat, dropping his hands. “I really am sorry - I should have been paying more attention. I was just… Looking at the time, really,” he told her honestly, disappointed in himself but more so concerned for her, “Are you okay?”
    Eva hadn’t really been sure what to think when Rosa had first announced that they’d be moving to a town called Beacon Hills. She hadn’t really minded the move overall - she wasn’t really close to anybody back home, usually finding it difficult to open up to people aside from Rosa and it had tended to cause tension with any friends she’d made. But, it’d still been a little off-putting to move to an entirely new town, because, then, she had to get used to the small size of the town compared to home, and get used to the format of the school, and the new class schedule she now had. For the most part, she hadn’t taken notice of anything throughout the day so far, mostly trying to adapt to her new surroundings, and she had her class schedule out while she sat at her lunch table, mentally running over it to try to memorize where each room should be after lunch, so she wouldn’t have any major troubles.

    Hearing a voice, though, she blinked, lifting her gaze to the source, surprised to find somebody actually trying to talk to her - and, for a moment, she almost thought that maybe he wasn’t actually talking to her, but maybe somebody behind her, but his attention was on her and she felt a nervousness she didn’t recognize bubble up in her. In that moment, she wished Rosa was there, certain her sister would have been a great buffer for any stupid things that might pass Eva’s own lips. Clearing her throat, she offered a small smile and nodded. “Oh, I wasn’t really… Paying attention in the classes, so I’ll take your word for it,” she said, doing her best to not seem rude, since she honestly hadn’t noticed the guy throughout the day so far. She’d been trying to adapt, after all, and she didn’t want to seem like a complete jerk to this guy. More of a reason to wish Rosa was there.

    “But, uh, hi, Liam,” she told him as she watched him, her gaze running over her features. With a better look at him, it was no wonder there’d been a sudden nervousness that she hadn’t understood. He was pretty cute, after all - something she definitely wouldn’t be admitting out loud, but she’d definitely acknowledge it mentally, to herself. “I’m Eva.” She watched him for a moment before she shifted, holding her hand out. “It’s nice to meet you.”

    Liam wasn’t sure if he had startled the girl or if she hadn’t noticed he was there, as he had found himself waiting a few seconds before she spoke to him. He had been tempted to just turn around and walk away, until she spoke to him and he was relieved when she didn’t tell him to leave her alone like he thought she might. He couldn’t blame her for not paying much attention during the morning classes, he assumed living in a small town was different to what she knew. Plus, just moving to a new area would be bad enough, he was lucky he’s never had to go through moving and being the new kid at a different school. But a smile formed on his lips when she told him her name, the name suited her, it was pretty. “You too,” He held his lunch in one hand, so he could shake Eva’s hand with his other one. That was all he really needed, because once their hands dropped, he sat down at the table with her.

    “And don’t worry about not paying attention, the classes we’ve done together haven’t been interesting at all. You didn’t miss anything,” He told her, suddenly feeling more confident now that she hadn’t rejected him. It also felt nice to shake her hand, the contact they made felt different to him. He wasn’t sure why, but it was a warm sensation which Liam found himself wanting to feel again. “What made you move here?” He asked as he started eating his lunch, since he became a werewolf, he seems to always be hungry. He guessed it was because he was a werewolf and a teenage boy.
    Rosa shook her head lightly, “I’m fine really. No coffee was spilt,” She looked at the man before her, she took notice of the grip he had on her shoulders. She wanted to assure him that she was fine, because she was. Her coffee hadn’t been knocked, the lid was still securely in place on the takeaway cup and she hadn’t been thrown off balance. Glancing at the man more, she saw he was wearing a police uniform and he looked mighty good as well. If she tried to strike up a conversation with him, would she be making him late? If he was looking at his watch, then surely, he was on the way to somewhere. She didn’t want to waste his time, but she hadn’t really met many people in Beacon Hills. The other people she now knew where people she worked with, most of them weren’t close to her age, so she was beginning to feel a little lonely and she was second guessing if this was the right decision.

    “I’m Rosa, I just moved here with my younger sister Eva.” She decided to at least introduce herself to him, maybe if he didn’t have time now, then maybe she’d be able to see him later. “I’ll let you go, I’m sure you have somewhere you need to be.” She looked at him, a little disappointed that she wouldn’t be able to talk to this handsome stranger for much longer. At least she knew where he worked, she didn’t expect the local police station to be all that large. Not like the ones she had seen at home in the city, lately Rosa had been finding herself dreading the city, as home was only ever getting busier with even more people living there. So, moving to a smaller town was a welcomed change for her.

    Eva smiled to herself as she watched him, dropping her hand once he was sitting. For a moment, she was surprised that he had sat down, certain he had friends that he probably ate lunch with, but she wasn’t about to complain. Maybe it was a little selfish to avoid mentioning that, since she was mostly avoiding it because she didn’t want him to leave, but she also didn’t really want to have lunch alone, either. Besides, he seemed like a nice guy, so she figured she should take the opportunity to get to know him, since she hadn’t really paid much attention to her peers in class. Nodding, she settled back to relax as she focused on what he was saying. “Yeah, that’s a good thing. I’d probably never hear the end of it from my sister if she found out I wasn’t paying attention in any of my classes yet,” she joked lightly, making a face with the thought. She knew that wouldn’t be the case; she knew Rosa would know that she was adjusting, so she wasn’t worried, but it was fun to joke about it, at least.

    She leaned forward to poke at her food for a moment, eyeing it as she thought about how to properly answer his question. “My sister got a teaching job here,” she explained, offering a small smile over at Liam, “She’s the new science teacher here. It’s her first real teaching job and I’m pretty sure it’s always been her dream to teach, so we moved here.” Nodding once, she ate some of her food before she leaned forward. “It’s not really all that bad of a move overall, at least. I didn’t really have much back home to care about, so the only real problem here is readjusting, getting used to a new schedule, a new school layout. I’m really just happy for my sister, though.”
    Jordan stared at her for a few moments, taking her in, and he could feel a sort of connection there, something he couldn’t really explain, and he wasn’t really used to that; it was a strange thing to notice, but it was an… Amazing feeling, as if this single moment was meant to happen, as if he was meant to meet her in general. Still, he smiled slightly and nodded. “Good, I’m glad you’re okay,” he told her honestly, examining over her just to make sure, because he still couldn’t help but to worry. It was habit, sure, but part of him felt like it was more than just that and, while he couldn’t explain it, he definitely wasn’t about to ignore it. Settling his gaze back on her face, he mentally acknowledged just how beautiful she was. Surely, she wasn’t from around here - he was certain he would have noticed her long before now if that had been the case, after all. She seemed like a very difficult person to overlook, especially with the feeling he couldn’t understand still very much present.

    “Oh, you just moved here?” he asked, offering a small smile before he nodded. “I’m Jordan. Jordan Parrish. Deputy Parrish.” He made a face, mentally wondering if he’d given up too many different forms of his name, worried he’d make it seem like he was bragging, which he wasn’t - anybody could look at him in his uniform and tell that he was a police officer, after all. He just felt immensely nervous talking to this beautiful woman. “Why did you move here?” he asked with curiosity, offering a smile as he took her in, though he shook his head. “Oh, no, I’m actually just on lunch break. If you want, I could grab myself something to eat and we could sit and chat, at least until you or I have to go?” Because he was definitely in no hurry to part from this woman’s presence just yet.

    The thought that maybe Eva didn’t want company, didn’t pass Liam’s mind as he sat at the table beside her. He wasn’t sure where Mason was at the moment, but he knew his friend would most likely join them if he wanted. Smiling, he listened to what she was telling him. He now knew that she had a sister, he wanted to pry more but felt that could make him come across as nosy which he wasn’t. He simply just wanted to know more about Eva, which would come in time if she did want to continue talking to him. He didn’t have many friends, Mason had always been there for him and now he also had Scott and the pack. But only Mason was his own age, it would be good for him to spend time with people his age. “In that case, your secret is safe with me.” He grinned as he used his fingers to pretend like he was zipping his lips shut, only once his hand dropped back down did he realise how much of a dork he had to look like to Eva. This is why he wanted Mason to talk to her first, he knew this would happen, he wasn’t good when it came to talking to pretty girls, he didn’t have much experience and Eva was making him nervous.

    Liam’s eyebrows rose when he received the answer to his question about why Eva had moved to Beacon Hills, he had briefly overheard there was a new science teacher starting at the school, not that he paid much attention to what he heard though. “That’s pretty cool, though. But if your sister gives you any special marks, could she also not fail me this year.” He joked with a cheesy smile on his face, he’d admit that science wasn’t his best nor favourite class that he had, most things the teacher taught didn’t end up sticking in his head. Scoffing, he shook his head. “I don’t believe that, I’m sure you would have left friends and a boyfriend back home.” He didn’t believe Eva, someone so kind would draw friends in and she was beautiful, she had to have a boyfriend that she left at home. That thought did dampener his spirit a little, knowing she wouldn’t be single. “If you need any help with finding class rooms, knowing which teachers are a pain to have, or just want someone to hang out with. I’m always here,” He looked at her as he honestly hoped she would take him up on his offer, the more time he could spend with her, the better.
    Rosa could feel her stomach tighten with one giant knot when she saw his smile, he honestly had the best smile that she had seen on a guy and a nice smile had always been a weakness for her. “Yeah, we moved here just over a week ago.” She explained as it had all happened so quickly, she received a call about the job and then was given the date of when she would have her first date at the high school. She hadn’t been expecting to have such little time to pack up her and her sister’s lives, find a home and move, surprisingly it had all gone smoothly which Rosa hadn’t been expecting. She couldn’t help but smile when Jordan offered up different versions of his name, it was obvious that he was law enforcement by the uniform he was wearing. The uniform that clung to his body nicely, showing off the muscle that he was hiding under the fabric. Pushing that thought away, Rosa looked at him and felt something… she couldn’t explain it, all she wanted was to talk to him, find out more about him.

    “I moved for work, I’ve been hired to teach at the high school. I’m the new science teacher,” Pride clung to her voice as she spoke, she still couldn’t believe the luck she seemed to have out of nowhere. She had been assuming that she wouldn’t get the job and would have to continue looking for a decent teaching job, yet this job seemed to fall into her hands at the right time. She knew her parents would be so proud of her from what she had done, she worked all through her studies to support Eva and stay on top of the bills. It had been hard and still is, raising a teenager when she herself was still young was challenging. But Eva was the best sister Rosa could have asked for, they got through it all together. Nodding her head, “Yeah. I’d really that,” She offered to Jordan as she would like to have lunch with him, she still had enough time and she could feel it, she wasn’t ready to leave his presence yet.

    A small grin formed on Eva’s features as she watched Liam, amused with his words and actions. It was dorky, sure, but it was adorable, too, and she couldn’t help but to enjoy the sight quite a bit. “The zip doesn’t count if you don’t lock it and throw away the key,” she pointed out in a slightly teasing hum, her grin broadening slightly. Tilting her head, she wondered how it was possible for her to meet somebody like him on her first day of school in Beacon Hills. Was that usually possible? She wasn’t quite sure what to think about it all, but she figured she was probably pretty lucky if she’d been allowed to meet somebody as nice and adorable as Liam, no matter how simple that luck was. Ducking her head, she smiled to herself and focused on eating quietly while she listened to him continue to talk, mostly just enjoying hearing his voice.

    “I really doubt my sister will give me any special marks,” she said honestly, lifting her gaze, then, to look at him, taking him in for a moment. “She wants me to learn, after all - she’d want me to actually earn the grades.” And, really, Eva wouldn’t want special marks. She wanted to earn her grades; she wanted to work for them. It was only fair, plus it meant she accomplished something on her own. “Um, no, actually. I mean, I had… Associates, I guess? Friends, in a way, but nobody I was really close to.” She shrugged gently. “And definitely no boyfriend. All the guys I knew were more interested in arm candy than actual relationships.” It didn’t really matter to her, though; she didn’t care about it and it didn’t bother her. She smiled at him, though, and nodded. “Thanks, Liam. I’ll hold you to that.”
    Jordan nodded with her explanation, taking her in, smiling to himself. Something about her was definitely drawing him in further, making him want to stick around longer, urging him to get to know her better. “A week ago, huh?” he asked, arching a brow, his gaze running over her face, her features, committing it all to memory, and he couldn’t help but to smile the whole time as he examined her. “How are you liking it in Beacon Hills so far, then?” He wasn’t even sure if she would have had time to enjoy Beacon Hills at all. For all he knew, she probably could have spent that week just unpacking, being unable to really explore Beacon Hills or figure it out, get used to it. He wondered if maybe he should take an opportunity to offer to show her around, if she hadn’t gotten to see it all for herself just yet, but his attention focused on her later words.

    “A high school teacher, huh? And, science?” he asked, grinning slightly as he watched her. She clearly seemed pretty proud of the fact and he couldn’t blame her. Considering the fact that she seemed like a kind woman so far - even if he’d only known her for a few minutes so far, - it wouldn’t surprise him at all if being a teacher mattered so much to her in general. “I’m sure you worked hard for that. And, I’m sure you’ll love teaching at the high school. I know a few students there. Most of the students there seem to be good kids, from what I know about them.” He hoped that would encourage her or maybe ease her mind a bit, in case she was worried about teaching high school students. It wouldn’t be an easy job, but he was sure she could handle it. “Alright, great. I’ll just go grab something to eat and meet you at a table,” he told her, grinning as he watched her before he turned to go to the counter to get something for lunch, eager to sit and chat with her and get to know her better.

    Seeing the small grin that formed on Eva’s stunning features reassured Liam that perhaps he hadn’t made himself look like he had lost his mind after all, “It totally still matters. Besides if I had thrown the key away, then I wouldn’t be able to talk to you. Unless that was your plan all this time,” He joked with her as he was now feeling slightly more confident and comfortable around her, of course she still made him nervous because he wanted to impress her, that was something he wasn’t sure if he was doing well or not. He tried not to think about his lack in experience when it came to talking to pretty girls, he could talk to most people, he had no problem with that but when it came to the opposite sex and to someone he was attracted to. He had learnt and grown from the relationship he had with Hayden, but they had also known each other since they had been kids, talking to Eva was completely different. It was like he couldn’t think of anything to say, he would get tongue twisted or say the wrong thing.

    The last thing he wanted to do was offend Eva, he wanted to be there with her and talk to her. Her voice was soothing to him and her presence seemed to be welcoming him, drawing him in to be closer to her. None of which he had ever felt before, but was now relishing in. Continuing to eat, Liam listened to Eva’s voice and her words. “Well, in that case. Would your sister be able to bump up my grades? I’m pretty sure I’m close to failing science,” He grinned as he wasn’t being serious in that request, although he was close to failing the subject, he also didn’t want to get special grades without putting the effort in. It was just hard for him, being a werewolf and juggling school was harder than what Scott made it seem. A slight frown formed as he listened to how Eva didn’t have friends or a boyfriend where she used to live, “Why? I mean your gorgeous and nice, why wouldn’t they want to know you?” The words tumbled from his lips before he could register what he was saying, not that he would take back what he had said. It was all true. Sure, he didn’t really know Eva, but she was still sticking around him. So, there was kindness in her and she was beautiful, she should have guys swarming around her.
    Rosa suddenly wasn’t concerned about getting back to the school, she still had plenty of time during the lunch break, so she wouldn’t need to hurry away from Jordan. “I haven’t really had much time to explore yet, I’ve been busy unpacking and making sure my sister is ready to start a new school.” Normally whenever she mentioned her sister and how it was just the two of them, guys and people in general, seemed to turn and run as quickly as they could. It didn’t overly bother Rosa as she was more than happy for things to stay the same, Eva was after all, her top priority. “I’m mostly excited, I’ve had a few classes this morning and I think they went well.” She smiled as she wasn’t feeling the nerves that she had earlier that morning, the kids in her class so far had been behaving for her. Hopefully it wasn’t just for her first day, if not, Rosa was positive she would be able to handle whatever came her way during class. “Great,” Smiling she turned and found a shaded table outside, sitting down she suddenly had seconds thoughts about this.

    Jordan was inside ordering himself lunch, she could make it to her car before he got to the table. As soon as he found out about her parents and how she was now the sole guardian of her teenage sister, he was going to run for the hills. Like every other guy did, it was the reason why she never bothered with guys or going on dates, nothing ever lasted for her. She felt like she was this black omen, whoever she loved would leave her and she wasn’t sure if she could deal with anymore heartbreak. She wanted to call her sister, though she knew Eva would only encourage her to stay and actually talk to a guy for once. Her mind was busy with thoughts as she sat at the table, she hadn’t taken the chance to run before her eyes watched as Jordan carried his own lunch over to the table. Than as if by magic, the thoughts that had been racing through her mind, simply vanished the second her eyes landed on him. There was still some doubt in her mind that he would stick around, but she was certain he was the reason for her calmed state. “Have you lived here long?” She asked once he had taken the chair across from her, she wanted to tell him so he would have the chance to leave but at the same time, she didn’t want him to leave.

    Eva smiled to herself with hearing Liam’s joke and she watched him for a long moment before nodding in understanding. “You make a very good point,” she admitted with amusement as she watched him, taking him in. “And a very smart one, too. But, that definitely wasn’t my plan. That would mean I don’t want to talk to you and that’s definitely not true.” After all, he seemed like a pretty nice person and he was ridiculously cute - why would she ever pass up on the chance to keep talking to him? Something about him just seemed to so easily draw her in and she found herself actually enjoying the conversation already. It was just somehow easy to talk to him and Eva wasn’t used to that, outside of her sister, Rosa. She usually struggled - not because she was shy, because she wasn’t, but because most conversations didn’t really flow easily for her. Most people she’d come into contact with just didn’t seem to care about the actual context of conversations.

    Hearing his question, though, she laughed. “I’m sure you could try to ask her for some extra credit,” she told him with a smile, “Because she won’t bump up your grades just to do it. I’m sure she’d rather you earn that bump. So, seriously, ask her for some extra credit. The worst that could happen would be for her to say no, but if you seem genuine and you seem like you actually want to work for a better grade and that you’ll put the work in and keep up in her class, I’m certain she’ll agree to it.” She nodded, because her sister was a great person and Eva was sure that her sister would take into consideration that some teachers before her might have been difficult to work with, or that adjusting to a new teacher could be hard. She blinked, though, to Liam’s questions, and shrugged. “Well, it wasn’t all them. It’s, uh… Kind of hard for me to get close to people, so I usually tend to keep them at arm’s length.” Ever since they lost their parents, it was hard to really get close to anybody - that fear of losing them always still fresh in her mind, even if she’d been young. She blinked, though, when she realized that Liam had called her gorgeous and her cheeks warmed quickly with surprise.
    Jordan smiled when he rejoined Rosa, sitting down with her as he watched her, just really taking her in, trying to determine what it was about her that drew him in so easily. He didn’t often get attached to people so easily, but he could feel himself already growing attached to her and he couldn’t quite put his finger on why. It wasn’t just that she was gorgeous and kind and clearly caring, it felt like there was something more to it than all of that. “Well, if you haven’t had much time to explore yet, I could always show you around after work?” he offered up, picking up where there conversation had dropped, wanting to have the opportunity presented for them to spend more time together, if she wanted. He didn’t want to push her, because he knew that a new town could be kind of baffling and difficult to get used to, but he wanted to help her through the process in any way that he could. And, beyond that, he wanted to get to know more about her and spend more time with her - and if the chance came in the way of showing her around, he’d gladly take it. “I’m sure you’re a great teacher. Maybe I’ll sit it on one of your classes,” he joked lightly, grinning slightly at her.

    Listening to her question, he shrugged gently. “I’ve lived here for a few years. Beacon Hills kind of just… Drew me in.” Much like Rosa had. While Jordan now knew that he’d been drawn there by the Nemeton, a part of him wondered if he’d also been drawn there because Rosa would eventually be there, if the Nemeton knew that and had drawn him to stay to wait for her. He tried not to think about it too much, because that was delving into a thought process about a future together with her when they’d only just met. But, really, he could see it as a possibility, especially with how easy it was to just… Be around her already, after only just meeting her. It wasn’t something he was used to, he’d never experienced it with anybody else. “Before this place, where did you live? Or have you moved around a lot?” Needless to say, he was curious about Rosa. More than anything, he wanted to learn as much about her as he possibly could, certain that he’d never get tired of hearing her voice.

    Liam again felt relief wash over him when Eva admitted that she did want to talk to him, “I’m glad that wasn’t your plan. Honestly, I would have been pretty bummed if you didn’t want me here talking to you.” He wasn’t going to hide that, why would he? He did have more confidence in himself at times, and it seemed like right now he wasn’t going to shy away from the pretty new girl. She had after all been sitting on her own at lunch, he wanted to make her feel welcomed and like she had a friend among the crowd of other students. “I’ll definitely ask her for some extra credit then,” He grinned knowing that he needed the bump in his grade, he just hoped that he would have the time to finish the extra work that her sister might give him. Being in Scott’s pack certainly didn’t give him much spare time, though if Scott could be passing all of his classes then he should be as well. He listened to Eva as she told him why she didn’t have a boyfriend or friends at her old school, he knew better than to pry as she could tell him later if she wanted him to know more about why she kept people away from her.

    “I’m the same, a little. I used to only have Mason, he’s been my best friend since we were kids. It’s really only been recently that I’ve made more friends,” He wasn’t going to say why he had made more friends, as he had kind of been thrown into the supernatural world. Although now, he wouldn’t have changed any of it. “Do you play any sport or want to join any clubs here? I’m on the lacrosse team, you should come cheer me on at our next game.” Liam would love to see Eva sitting on the stands cheering him on while he was out of the field with the team, he could only imagine how better his game would be if she was there as he would desperately want to impress her. He thought if she did want to sign up for a school club or a sport team, he could go with her as either support or just to show her where she had to go. He’d really do whatever he had to, in order to spend more time with her.
    Looking at Jordan, there was something telling Rosa not to push him away. She couldn’t explain it or even figure it out for herself, she felt this need to have Jordan come apart of her life. It was a sense that she hadn’t ever experienced before, it was foreign to her, but she listened to it. So, when Jordan offered to show her around Beacon Hills, she took it when normally she would have kindly declined. “That would be great actually, thank you.” She smiled softly to herself, for the longest time Rosa never believed in fate. She couldn’t as it would mean that her parents were supposed to die at the times they did, she was then meant to be alone with Eva and she couldn’t bring herself to think in that way. But could it be possible for fate to have brought her walking out of the coffee shop at the same time Jordan was heading in? Were they supposed to meet in this small town that Rosa had so many seconds thoughts about? No, the world didn’t work in that way. At least not for her, all she really ever had was bad luck and that wouldn’t change now.

    “You can only sit in my class, if you can keep up.” The joke easily rolled off her tongue as she looked at him, she wasn’t sure if he would make her nervous if he did turn up for one of her classes. “From what I’ve seen and heard, it’s a nice town.” She had a similar experience, she had been wanting to move away from home ever since she lost her mom and had come across Beacon Hills as she had been looking at a map. A few days later, one of her professors emailed her with a link to the advertised teaching job in Beacon Hills. She then sat down that night with Eva and let her read over the job that was being offered, only then did she apply as Eva had given her approval. “I grew up in Seattle, but we had moved around when I was younger. My dad was in the army, so we moved very few years, but we eventually settled in Seattle.” Rosa couldn’t remember the last person she mentioned her parents to this soon after meeting them, she always kept her parents and their deaths close to her. She couldn’t believe that she had brought up her dad when she had only just met Jordan, she didn’t regret it and she wasn’t panicking about it as she normally would whenever her parents were bought up. She would be telling her sister all about this when they got the chance.

    Eva grinned slightly as she watched him. “Never, it was never the plan,” she assured him, shaking her head slightly, rather glad to be able to just talk to somebody. And, she was so at ease talking to Liam, which came as a surprise to her, but she was going to enjoy it for all it was worth. “Yeah, go for it. If she gives you extra credit, I can always help. Or we can have study sessions or something.” She shrugged, leaving the offer there just in case he ever needed the help. She was sure that, if he put his mind to it, he could do it, he just needed some motivation or there could be a lot going on in his life that made it hard. Listening to him talk about his friends, she smiled as she listened. “That’s good that you’ve made more friends. Are you close to all of them?” She arched a brow, curious, but made a joking face. “I don’t do sports, but I might do the art club or photography club, maybe. They seem interesting enough. But, if you’re on the Lacrosse team, I’ll definitely come out and cheer you on. Should I go all out with the school spirit?” She grinned, admittedly looking forward to the idea of it.
    Jordan grinned with her decision and nodded slightly. “In that case, just let me know when you’re free and when you want a look around the town. I’ll make sure to clear up my schedule for you,” he told her and he meant it. He’d take any chance he could to spend time with her and, honestly, he was already looking forward to the chance, eager to get to know her more and to spend more time with her, to be in her presence longer. He laughed, though, to her words, and leaned back in his seat, grinning as he took her in. “I think I can keep up. Or I’ll at least try my best to manage to do so, anyways, and I promise not to interrupt your lessons.” Smiling, he took her in, enjoying the way she looked and listening to her voice. “It is a good town. A little… Crazy sometimes, but it’s good.” At least it was mostly supernaturally crazy, so normal people wouldn’t have to worry as much, which meant she’d be safe - which put his mind at ease. “Oh? Seattle?” He arched a brow, curious now as he leaned forward to assure her that he was paying attention. “Did you like Seattle, then? Do you think you’ll miss it there?”

    Liam’s attention perked up when Eva suggested having a study session, he could definitely do that whenever he needed the extra help. “I’m keen for a study session, as long as it’s just the two of us and not a study group.” Realising what he had said after the fact, he wanted to play it off as a joke, but it was too late for that. He had already said it to her and he had been completely serious, “I mean… personally I learn better that way.” He tried to brush it off that way as to not many Eva uncomfortable. “I am close to them, it took me a while to warm up to them, but they really are the best. I’m sure you’ll like them too, if you wanted to ever meet them.” Although he didn’t want Eva to ever be in any kind of danger, which he was in more often than not these days. He also wanted to make her feel welcomed, help her meet more good people, as he could only imagine how tired she would become of hanging out with him and Mason all the time. He also thought she might want some girl friends, which at least Lydia would be good at. He grinned as he looked at her and took in her beauty even more, he liked that she was a creative person. “I’m sure either of those clubs would love to have you.” He wanted to know everything about her, he had a million questions for her, but knew if he blurted them all out, then she would run away screaming. “You have to come along for the next game, and I’m expecting you to bring all the school spirit that you can. But you can only cheer for me, no one else.” He chuckled softly as he would love having her in the crowd cheering him on.
    Rosa smiled as she actually wanted him to show her around the small town, normally when she moved, she didn’t really bother exploring the new place as she knew she wouldn’t be there for long. Another reason why she never allowed herself to make friends, when her dad had been alive, they only stayed in the one place for a few years before going somewhere else. But there was something about Jordan, she wanted to spend time with him, talk to him and have him close by. She also was planning on staying in Beacon Hills for as long as she could, to give Eva some stability that they hadn’t had before. “You’ll be the first to know when I’m free,” She looked at him across the table and wondered how lucky she had been, to come across such an amazing guy. “Seattle was fine,” She shrugged her shoulders lightly, “A lot happened there. It was just time to move on and start fresh, Eva also deserves to get a new start and to be able to call a place home. I won’t miss Seattle,” She never really did miss the cities and towns that she had lived in, none of them ever felt like home to her. Home to her was when she was with her family, she could be living anywhere but if she didn’t have her family then she wasn’t comfortable in her surroundings. “Did your girlfriend move here with you?” She asked as casually as she possibly could, hoping that he would say no and that he was single.

    Eva blinked when she heard Liam's words, though she grinned broadly as she watched him and she chewed on her lip slightly before ducking her head a bit. “Well, I'm perfectly fine with a duo study group,” she assured him, her grin softened to a smile as she lifted her gaze to peer up at him, taking him in for a few moments, admittedly amazed by him, really. She'd never really met somebody who so easily captured her attention, somebody she felt comfortable around outside of Rosa, but Liam seemed to have that kind of effect on her and she found herself enjoying it. Still, she nodded as she listened to him. “I think I'd enjoy meeting your friends.” Her grin returned as she watched him. “Considering you give them such high praise, I'm sure I'll like them.” And she was looking forward to meeting his friends, she really was; and she honestly wanted him to meet Rosa outside of a school environment as well. “I'll definitely come to your next game and cheer you on, I promise.”
    Jordan grinned broadly with the words that came from Rosa's lips and he found himself nodding along to her words. “Well, in that case, I'll patiently wait for you to be free,” he told her quietly, happily, eager to really be able to spend as much time with her as he could. He wasn't really used to that feeling, to wanting to be around somebody, especially with knowing what he was now and the dangers that came with it, but he honestly couldn't help it at this point when it came to Rosa. She was just that perfect, in his eyes, and he was looking forward to spending as much time with her as he possibly could. He arched a brow, though, as he watched her, curious, but he was worried about crossing any lines, especially so soon after meeting Rosa - but his concern for her outweighed that. “Do you want to talk about what happened there?” he asked her quietly, concerned, “I mean, you don't have to. But, if you want to, you can.” He offered a small smile in response before he blinked and chuckled. “Oh, uh, no, no girlfriend. It's just me here.”

    Liam felt his tense muscles relax after hearing Eva agree to having a study session with just him, in those few seconds as he waited for her answer. His mind had taken him to her rejecting him, telling him to stay away from her and her storming off. Those thoughts vanished the second she agreed, and a somewhat goofy grin settled on his features, “Great.” He muttered mostly to himself, as this was going surprisingly well for him, which it didn’t normally when it came to him trying to impress a girl. “I know they’ll really like you, especially Mason. We’ve been friends since we were kids, he’ll be happy to have someone else to talk to.” He smiled already knowing how much his best friend would adore Eva, Mason has been on his back for a while now, encouraging him to put himself out there again. Liam was glad that he hadn’t, because if he had then he might not have been sitting next to the most beautiful girl, he could have missed this chance with Eva and that would have devasted him. “I’ll make sure you keep that promise,” He smiled as he looked at her, he couldn’t help but take her in. He wanted to memorize her features, remember her smile when he closed her eyes, recognise her sweet scent in a crowded room, know her footsteps from a mile away. “Maybe after the game, I could take you out for dinner or walk you home.” He suggested out of nowhere, he knew he wanted to spend all of his time with her, but he didn’t know why or how he was being this forward.
    Watching as Jordan grinned at her, Rosa could feel her heart beating rapidly in her chest. She hadn’t ever felt this way before from just getting around someone, she was instantly comfortable being there with him. How she was feeling, was confusing for her, yet she wasn’t wanting to run away from those feelings. “I’m sure you won’t have to wait long for me to be free,” She looked at him as she too, wanted to spend more time with him. Learn about who he is, what he’s done in his past and what he’s planned for his future. She found herself hoping that she would be in his future. Listening to his words, she found herself wanting to tell him everything but held back as she had only met him, she didn’t want to scare such an amazing guy away. Every time the subject of her parents was brought up by someone who wasn’t Eva, Rosa shut down and pushed that person away from her, it was how the wall around her had been built. To keep everyone but her sister away, so neither of them would feel that heartbreaking pain again. “Another time,” She told him with the intent of actually telling him how her parents died, two stories that not many people knew or heard from Rosa’s lips. Hearing that Jordan was in fact, single, caused a smile to grow on her face, not meaning for it to happen though it seemed to be out of her control. How could he still be single? “Maybe you could show me around after school or tomorrow? I’ll have to check what Eva is doing first,” She couldn’t wait to tell her sister all about Jordan, and how he was making her feeling.

    Eva grinned slightly as she examined Liam and a part of her was happy that somebody had gone out of their way to talk to her at all, but the fact that it was Liam made her heart swell. Something about her made her feel like she could just enjoy being around him, like she could trust him, and she just wanted to be around him as much as she possibly could at this point. “I hope you’re right. Especially when it comes to Mason, if he’s your best friend,” she chimed happily, because, although she knew she was thinking far ahead, if anything were to ever form between herself and Liam, she wanted his friends to like her, she wanted his best friend to like her. Hearing his later words, though, she laughed quietly. “Yeah? I’m sure I can manage to keep to the promise, but I’ll accept your determination.” And, at this point, she was determined to. Hearing his later words, though, she blinked slowly as she examined him, her heart pounding in her chest, and she chewed on her lip to bite back her grin. “That sounds almost like a date,” she hummed out a little teasingly, “But you can definitely count me in.”
    Jordan smiled as he took Rosa in, silently swearing to himself that she was the most amazing sight he’d ever known, and he never wanted to forget the sight of her. “Well, in that case, I look forward to the moment you’re free,” he teased lightly, surprised with how easy it was to just… Talk to her, be himself around her, listen to her, and all he wanted was for these moments to continue, for him to get as many chances to be around Rosa as possible. He wanted, more than anything, to ensure that Rosa was a part of his life, in his life in any way, because he swore she was what he wanted, what he needed, even though he’d only known her for not even an hour. Still, hearing her later words, he offered a small nod in response. “Of course. Whenever you’re ready. I’d never force or ask you to talk about something you didn’t want to talk about.” But, he did at least want her to know that he was willing to listen, no matter what. He grinned, though, when she brought up the suggestion of showing her around after school and he couldn’t help but to nod without even having to think about it, without hesitating at all. “Of course I can. I can pick you up from school, even, if you’d like?”

    Liam wanted to tell Eva that she had nothing to worry about as he knew Mason would adore her and he would be the first to encourage this new friendship, though silently Liam hoped that this friendship could eventually turn into a relationship. Obviously, he wasn’t in any rush for that to happen, if Eva ever wanted a relationship with him. “Trust me, you have absolutely nothing to worry about with Mason. You won’t even need to try to win him over,” He grinned knowing that Mason would take a liking to Eva straight away, really all Eva would need to do is say hi to Mason and she’d have a new friend. Liam cleared his throat as he looked at Eva and shifted on his chair slightly, “Maybe that was sort of my way of asking you out on a date,” He prayed that Eva wouldn’t reject him now that she knew in his mind, them spending time together after the game was in fact a date. He hasn’t had a first date for a while and wasn’t sure what Eva would be comfortable doing, he didn’t know the things that she liked to do in her spare time, he didn’t know what she would hate doing. “I mean we can totally do something different for a date, if you still wanted to go on a date with me. If you did, there’s other things we can do.” All he wanted to do now was hide, he tended to blabber on when he got nervous.
    Rosa knew that Jordan wouldn’t press her to talk about her parents, he didn’t seem like he would be that kind of person. Which was a relief because she has had to deal with those type of guys before, sure they wanted to know more about her, but they ended up being pushed away very quickly as she needed more time before explaining to anyone about her parents’ deaths. Looking at him, she nodded her head in agreement. “After school sounds like a plan, and you can pick me up if you have the time.” She didn’t want to be a hassle for him, she could just as easily meet him somewhere in town and they could go from there. However, it would be nice to be picked up by him before he showed her around Beacon Hills. “Maybe if you have the time afterwards, you could come over to mine for some dinner or a drink.” She offered before her mind had the chance to think about what she was saying to him, never in a million years has she ever invited a guy back to her home after meeting him less than an hour ago. Partly because she was a private person, but mostly because of Eva. She didn’t want her sister meeting or growing attached to a guy that Rosa liked, because any relationship that she started was doomed to end eventually.
