It was early morning, still dark outside.
He grumbled and rolled over.
[i No school today. Nothing I need to do. I can just chill and relax.]
He went back to sleep.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway As Burr walked the woman back to her dorm, her mind was going back the last couple of hours. Was he really choosing her for Eliza? Or was it just because he felt guilty? She shook her head lightly, and looked up at Burr when they were at her apartment. [#D7ACAC "Thank you for walking me home.."] she said lightly. The male shook his head a bit. [b "No need to thank me. It's what friends are for. Also, don't let what that bastard said get to you. You will be someone's first choice Angelica"] he said with a warm smile.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway She nodded lightly. [#D7ACAC "I know I will be"] she said. She kissed his cheek lightly, and went into the building. The night's event's were taking it's toll on her. She had classes in the early morning, and she wasn't in the mood to stay up any longer. When she was tucked away in her dorm room, she changed out of the dress, and into pajama's. She then crawled into bed, pulled the blankets over her head, and let sleep wash over her.]
Alex stood there, nose bleeding, in shock. "What--"
Ed walked up behind him and put his arm around Alex's shoulders. "Come on. Let's just go back to the dorm."
Alex spent most of the rest of the night with tissues held over his nose, staring at the ceiling and ignoring the constant buzzing of his phone. He told Ed to turn everyone away at the door.
He just didn't want to talk to anyone. At all.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway She stopped and looked over her shoulder at the male behind him. [#D7ACAC "I know who Burr dated, and him and I aren't even that close. It's kind of sad that you'd think him and I would even think about being together. He's just a good friend of mine. So before assuming anything else, ask first"] she snapped. Burr let the woman go, and stormed over to the other male. He drew his arm back and punched him straight in the face. [b "How dare you assume she wouldn't have been a first choice. Like the woman said, her and I aren't even close to thinking about dating. Now if you don't mind, it's cold as shit out here, and she wants to go home"] he hissed.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway Before the other could do anything, he was back with his arm around Angelica, and she shook her head a bit. [#D7ACAC "You didn't have to hit him.. I think he got the point"] she said lightly. She then looked back at Alexander. [#D7ACAC "Good night Alexander. See you around campus"] she said lightly, shivering a bit and headed towards her dorm to get out of the cold.]
"You aren't even Burr's first choice!" Alex shouted after Angelica and Burr as they walked away. Burr froze. "He's already dated two different women, Eliza Jumel and Theodosia Prevost. Most people have a first choice, but then they meet who [i should] have been their first choice. That's how I feel, Angelica. I never knew you, so I thought that Eliza was right for me. But now I know. I've learned. Please. Please, just listen."
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway Burr put a protective arm around Angelica's waist. [b "You don't have to listen to a word he say's. He hasn't broken up with Eliza. Don't let him lead you on"] he said glaring at the other male. Angelica looked up at Burr and smiled warmly towards him. [#D7ACAC "You are sweet, thank you for that"] she said lightly. She then looked back at Alexander, and tilted her head to the side. She narrowed her eyes when he said she shouldn't need to be a first choice. That seemed to piss her off a bit.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway She held up a hand to silence him. [#D7ACAC "Really? I shouldn't be someone's first choice? If you loved that person, you would [i always] put that person first. So I'm sorry if for once in my life, I want to be a first choice for someone. Not just a rebound, because you haven't ended things with your current girlfriend. If you really cared, you would have ended things with her first, before coming to find me. So if I'm not going to be your first choice, then don't even bother"] she said lightly.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway She then turned to Burr and nodded a bit. [#D7ACAC "Please take me back to my dorm"] she said. Burr nodded and looked at Alex and smirked a bit. [b "She does have a point mate. Get your shit handled first, before begging for a chance with the girl"] he said. The two then turned, and headed back the way they were heading. Angelica's heart breaking at the thought, that she should feel like she should be someone's first choice. Alexander didn't understand, and it seemed like he didn't want to understand.]
"Okay. Angelica, I'm sorry for what I said earlier. You [i should] be everyone's first choice for everything, but it shouldn't matter. As long as you have someone who loves you, you shouldn't need to be first. I can be that person for you. I can be that person for you. When we talked earlier, I felt a connection that I've never felt with anyone before. I know you felt it, Angelica. We both did. Please. Just give me a shot?"
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway The two stopped, and Burr looked towards Alexander. [b "I don't think she wants to talk to you. With how you treated her a little while ago"] he said. Angelica looked up at Burr, and nudged him a little bit. [#D7ACAC "Let's just listen and see what he says"] she said lightly. She then turned towards Alexander and stood there, her arm still linked with Burr's. His other hand resting on top of her's. [#D7ACAC "You need to hurry, because it's cold out here, and I don't want to stand here all night. So say what you want to say"] she said.]
Alex raced out into the cold and saw Burr, Angelica on his arm, walking away from him. "Angelica!" he called. "Please, just listen!" He ran towards her.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway As the night was starting to wind down, Angelica was getting to know Burr more and more. There was something there that made her feel calm. They spent the whole night together pretty much. She looked up towards him and smiled lightly. [#D7ACAC "Thank you for tonight, and putting up with me"] she said lightly. [b "No need to thank me sweetheart. I'm glad I got the chance to know you"] he said as he took her hand and kissed the back of it. [b "Let me walk you back to your dorm, it's getting late"] he said. The woman didn't need to wait any longer.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway She excused herself to go and get her things. She ran into her roommate and told her that she was leaving. When she had her things in hand, she walked back towards Burr. He held his hands out for her coat, and she handed it to him. He helped her put it on, and then she linked her arm with his, and they both headed out the door.]
Alex was face down on his bed when the door opened, and his roommate, Ed, walked in. "Hey, man. What's up? You look down."
"I met a girl who I like and I don't want to date Eliza anymore but she'll get annoyed if I break up with her but Angelica doesn't want to date me because she's my second choice not my first," Alex mumbled into the bed.
"Slow down, sit up, and repeat," Ed said, plopping down on Alex's bed and dragging Alex to a sitting position. "What were you saying about Eliza?"
"I want to break up with her, but she won't like it. There's another girl I like, Angelica, but she said that she wanted to be someone's first choice, not second."
"You sure? Maybe you should go back and talk to her, you know? She's in my Chem class and doesn't always say exactly what she means. She was probably putting you to the test or something."
Alex glanced at his friend. "You think?"
"Pretty sure. Now get get 'er." Ed pushed Alex towards the door.
He made up his mind and ran to find her.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway As the female stood there, she had somewhat put the male to the test, and when he didn't come after her, her heart sank a bit. The one male that did was Burr. He walked up to her, and touched her face gently. [b "Are you okay?"] he asked her. She nodded lightly. [#D7ACAC "I'm fine Burr, just ended up putting someone to the test, and I guess I'm not worth it"] she said lightly, with a shrug of her shoulders. Burr shook his head a bit [b "You are worth it. And if no man can see that, then why are you wasting your time?"] he asked her. She leaned against the wall and looked down.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [#D7ACAC "I guess I was trying to see if he was really showing interest, like he had been when I first arrived. But the only one showing any real interest is you. Sorry I shouldn't be talking about this"] she said as she looked up at him once more. [b "It's alright sweetheart. Let's go back inside since Alexander rudely took my dancing partner away"] he said with a warm smile. That she could do. She took his hand, and let him lead her back into the prom. Trying not to let Alexander's actions sting like they were.]
Alex froze. [i What just happened?] All he was gonna do was tell her that he'd decided to break up with Eliza. And then she went on ranting about "being first instead of second" or something.
[i Stupid]. Alex walked away from the dance floor and simply walked out of the party, leaving Eliza and Angelica behind. Maybe it was a bad choice; both girls could potentially chew him out later; but he didn't care. He kept walking until he came to his dorm. He walked in, stared at his door, and finally pushed it open and flopped on the bed, fighting back waves of confusion and tears.
[i Nothing ever works out, does it?]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway Angelica was enjoying the closeness of someone else, and when the music changed she was kind of sad. She knew that they would have to change partners, and before she could get off the dance floor, she was in Alexander's arms. She looked up at him, and her eyes narrowed a bit. [#D7ACAC "I'm not going to be a second choice Alexander Hamilton. I have been second choice my whole life, so for once I want to be someone's first."] she said. She then untangled herself from his arms, and walked away.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway She wasn't in the mood to deal with his head games. She walked out into the hall, and leaned against the wall. She stood there, her heart racing, wondering if she just made a huge mistake.]
Alex was sure his smile looked more like a grimace for the rest of the night as he watched Burr dancing with Angelica. Finally, Eliza dragged him on to the dance floor. The song was one of those ones where the girls switch partners all the time, and soon enough, Angelica was in Alex's arms.
"[#840000 I've decided,]" he murmured as he twirled her around.
