To be clear, I don’t believe in fairy tales. After the past eighteen years of
existing, I’d have to be pretty silly to put any stock in those. But I do
believe in destiny. Specifically, in our power over it.
Which is why, against all odds, I’m here—standing just outside my
dream school as one of the record few mid-freshman-year transfers that
Blue Ridge State has ever had. I kept it under wraps over winter break since
I was scrambling to figure out the financials of it, but as of today,
everything’s official. For once, everything is falling into place.
I squeeze the “A” charm on my mom’s old necklace, slide it back under
my coat, and knock three times on the door of the off-campus apartment in
front of me.
“Who’s there?” someone calls from inside.
“Um.” I’ve mentally rehearsed this moment so many times this morning
that my brain can’t shake the expectation of Connor swinging the door
open, his amber eyes wide and so happy to see me he sweeps me off my
Keds. Instead I lean in and say to the stranger, “It’s Andie? I’m Connor’s . .
Girlfriend, I’m going to say. Which I am, even if we’ve barely seen each
other since August, when he moved two hours from home to study here,
and I stuck around at the local community college.
A boy opens the door a crack, squinting at me. “Uh, I only just moved in.
But I don’t know any Connors.”
“I mean Whit,” I correct myself. Connor’s teammates have always called
him by his last name, to the point where I’m pretty sure they don’t
remember he has a first one to begin with. Even his Instagram bio just says
“No Whits, either.”
“Oh.” I step back to check the address. It looks like the same one I’ve
been sending care packages to every month, but maybe in all the
pandemonium of shoving my life into two suitcases and a backpack, I got
the numbers jumbled.
I pull my phone out of my pocket to call Connor. “Sorry to bother—”
The door shuts in my face. “You,” I mumble, taking a step back.
I press the phone to my ear, but it just rings until it hits Connor’s
voicemail. “Snickerdoodle,” I cuss, an admittedly weird habit I’ve picked
up from Gammy Nell, who refuses to use actual swear words and makes a
big show of flinching when anyone does within ten feet of her.
I was hoping to catch Connor before the kickoff event for the school’s
annual ribbon hunt, a tradition for freshmen I’ve only been dreaming about
for—well, pretty much my entire human existence. According to the
livestream I caught of the school’s underground radio show The Knights’
Watch, it’ll start on the quad at ten o’clock. But today’s already going to be
stacked with a quick move-in and new classes and trying to find a decent
work-study job as it is, so maybe catching up with Connor later is for the
best. It’s not like we’re short on time, now that we’re going to the same
