Someday Soon @brookhacker
Chapter 103

It was late Sunday afternoon when Josh rode the subway with Maya from the apartment to her dorm. They walked hand in hand up the stairs that lead from the tunnels to the street, and down the block to her building. They stopped just outside the dorm.

Josh pulled Maya against his chest and pressed a kiss to the top of her head.

"Thanks for the great weekend"

" I wish it wasn't over" Maya muttered against his chest.

"I'll see you soon," Josh promised. " Tuesday night in fact"

Maya sighed.

"Don't remind me. That's not going to be awkward at all".

Maya had given in to Rileys request for Josh and her to go out with Riley and Lucuas.

"It's going to be fine," Josh promised. Taking her by the shoulders and turning her towards the entrance to her building.

"Yeah yeah" Maya teased, reaching out to give Josh a quick peck before scanning her key card to open the door to her building.

Maya went to the cafeteria on the lower level of the dorm and picked up two big ice coffees, before boarding the elevator and heading for her floor.

Maya balanced the drinks with one arm while struggling with her key card to open the room to her room.

When she first entered she thought that Sasha wasn't there. The blankets on Sashas bed were all crumpled up at the end in a ball and it wasn't until that ball emitted a groan that she realized that Sasha was wrapped up in there.

"Dude are you alive?" Maya asked jokingly, reaching out and poking at the blankets.

"Barely" Sasha replied, her head poking out of her cocoon. The bags under her eyes were massive and her hair was sticking up in a million different directions.

"Is that coffee?" Sasha asked hopefully. Maya passed her one of the ice coffees and took a seat beside Sasha on the bed.

"What time did you get in last night?" Maya asked, taking a long sip of her own drink.

" 2 or 3 maybe?" Sasha guessed, rubbing her eyes with her fist.

"And what time did you wake up?"

"Just now" Sasha took off the lid and straw of her coffee and tossed it across the room in the general direction of the garbage can. She took three long gulps.

"Maybe you should drink some water" Maya suggested, watching her slightly amused and slightly concerned.

"Water is for the weak" Sasha muttered.

"It's like 4:30 dude. Your sleep schedule for tomorrow is going to be fucked"

Sasha shrugged.

"I don't even care. I think I'm going to skip Adlers class tomorrow and just sleep. Be fresh for this killer silent rave I heard about in Bushwick. I'm working on getting us tickets"

"There is no way you're going out again tomorrow in your current state"

"I'm not. We are" Sasha amended, nudging Maya in the thigh with her toe.

Maya rolled her eyes.

"Not a chance"

"Oh come on Mimi. You didn't come out with me at all this week!" Sasha complained.

"I went out with you on thursday!"

"Ok well that doesn't count!"

" Dude I am partied out. Can't we just go to lunch or something?" Sasha rolled her eyes.

"You're being the lame girl with the boyfriend who never wants to do anything"

Maya stood up, feeling a little insulted.

" So I don't want to go to a rave on a school night and that makes me lame?"

"No. Spending the whole weekend on the couch with your boyfriend makes you a lame. Not wanting to go to an awesome party makes you boring, and judging me for doing molly last weekend makes you bitch"

Maya took a step back, as if Sasha had just slapped her.

"Where the fuck did that come from? When did I judge you?" Sasha scoffed at her.

"Please. You flat out refused to try it with me, and then you followed me around like my mother all night with your judgy eyes-"

" I was following you around, because I was the only person you knew at that party and you were high out of your mind. I've been there, and If I hadn't had someone to look out for me shit could have got dark. I was trying to be a good friend"

"Well you failed"

Maya didn't know where all this hostility was coming from but she was over it.

"I don't need this" Maya spat, turning away from Sasha, pulling open her duffle bag, tossing out the clothes she had packed that weekend and stuffed a few clean things inside. She grabbed her textbooks for her classes the next day and stormed out.

Once the door had slammed behind her she like she'd been punched in the gut. This was exactly what she hadn't wanted to happen.

"Whatever" she muttered, trying to shake off the anger she felt.

She thought about going home again, but she didn't want to explain to her dad that she'd gotten in a fight with her roommate.

Maya got off the subway a few blocks early so that she could let off some steam, she walked quickly with her arms crossed, her duffel bag slapping against her hip as she went.

God, what was she going to do if things didn't get better with Sasha? Was she supposed to live the rest of the year with someone who now suddenly hated her? She somehow doubted housing would approve a switch this late in the year. Besides, she didn't want a new roommate. She loved Sasha. She wanted them to be friends again, but not like this. Not just on Sashas terms.

She was so enveloped in her own thoughts that she almost walked right past the building. She doubled back, buzzing the apartment, and pulling open the door as it unlatched.

"Did you forget something in my bag?" Josh asked jokingly when he opened the door to his apartment and saw Maya standing there.

"If only" Maya said irritably, stalking past him into the little room.

"Whats going on?" He asked, picking up that something was definitely off.

"What's going on is that I'm a lame boring bitch who only cares about my boyfriend because I don't want to do molly," Maya huffed, dropping down on the couch and crossing her arms over her chest.

"Wait, I'm confused," Josh said, walking over to where she sat.

"Well so am I!" Maya exclaimed.

Josh sat down next to her and placed a hand on her knee.

"Can we go back to the beginning? I saw you like an hour ago and everything was fine. What changed?"

Maya took a deep breath, before recounting everything that had happened with Sasha.

"Jesus" Josh muttered once Maya was finished.

"I know! You're a shrink in the making, what's happening here?"

Josh shrugged.

"Really? Is this what your patients are going to pay hundreds of dollars an hour for?"

"First of all, I'm a long long way from seeing patients so don't expect much out of this session but in my not so professional opinion, just purely as a bystander I think she might be a little jealous"

"Jealous?"

" I mean you told me that ever since she broke up with her boyfriend she's been wanting to go out with you more and more. So when you spent the weekend with me instead of going out with her she might have got a little resentful"

"Oh dear god" Maya muttered, letting her head fall back against the couch.

" I don't have room in my life for all this drama".

Josh squeezed her knee.

"So what am I supposed to do? I can't be everything for her, and be everything for Riley and be everything for you. I just can't! I'm going to lose my mind"

"Just give her a minute, let her cool down. Once she's not so hot headed, you can talk it out" Josh reasoned.

"Ok well then can I stay here tonight, because if I feel like if I go back to that room there is a 97% chance she will smother me in my sleep"

Josh smirked at her, wrapping an arm around her shoulders and pulling her against his chest.

"Of course you can stay here. You don't have to ask"

Maya smiled into his chest, leaning a little closer into his embrace.

"And" began resting his chin on the top of her head " if things get worse with her, which I don't think that they will, you can keep staying here"

Maya pulled her head back so she could look at Josh

"Are you asking me to move in with you?" she teased. Josh rolled his eyes but kept smiling at her.

"In not so many words"

"Ha!"

" But really. If things get worse and you don't want to go home. You can stay here. I like it better with you here anyway"

" Awe you mush" Maya teased, leaning back into his chest so he couldn't see the giddy look on her face.

"You love it" Josh teased back. Maya pretended to gag.

"Oh god, we are nauseating aren't we?"
