Crossing her arms against her chest again, she gave Mason another look. She couldn’t help but smile when he hit himself on her desk. “You kind of deserved that,” she said with a soft smile. “Air vent,” she repeated with a nod of her head. “I think you’re going to have to explain that one.” She added, restraining herself from grabbing a pillow and hitting him with it. Sitting back down on her bed, still looking at Mason. She found herself staring back and form Mason’s face back to the cut on his leg. “Let me get you something for that,” she finally spoke, getting off her bed and walking into her bathroom and getting some disinfectants.
After she got everything she needed, she walked back into the bathroom and attended to Mason’s leg. Bending down next to Mason, she smiled a little, looking up at him. “This is going to sting, but you’re going to have to suck it up,” she commented, wiping his leg. “I should be kicking your ass,” she murmured with a slight smile. She placed a bandage onto his leg and smile, getting up from the floor. She placed the items onto her desk and crossed her arms back across her chest. “Now, you can explain why you were in my room while I was getting dressed.”
“Yeah probs.” Mason said, cracking an awkward half smile while he twist his leg out as he leaned into Chey’s desk facing her as she sat on her bed. “Air vent is easy.” He said, pointing above Chey’s bed to the air vent close to the ceiling. “I fell out of it, onto your bed. Lucky that actually. I didn’t actually know where that came out. The vent I got in in the first place is buried inside my wall, has a crack in it, so I didn’t have to crawl up like that to get in.”
“Oh, ugh, you don’t have to…” Mason said, but it was too late. Chey had already went to get anti-septic. When she came back she started to apply the goop to his stupidly attained injury. “It’s fine.” Mason winced, “You really don’t have to be doing that, really. And yeah, I kinda sort of expected you to kick my ass. Or like, squish me that first time you sat on the bed and I was inside the pillow case.” He half smiled and ran a hand haphazardly through his hair.
“To be fair, I didn’t know it was anyone’s room, let alone your room specifically. I got bored and decided to go on an adventure. So I went inside the air vents and wandered around. You’d be amazed at the things you hear when doing that. It’s the greatest communication system in this whole school really.” Mason saw Chey didn’t really seem to care about his tangent, so he got back to the point, “But anyway, I just heard the water in the pipes and decided to follow where it was coming from, since running water normally means people. So I followed it, and just sort of plopped out here.” Mason paused for a second, and slightly raised his arms as if to defend himself. “I didn’t even see who it was until I got shook out of the pillow, I swear! I mean, I figured it was you cuz of the phone conversation you had, but, ugh, remember, you’re the one that dropped a soaking wet towel on me. I bolted right after than into the pillow. Promise I didn’t see anything, swear on crackers.”
