Iris Thompson walked toward the dining commons, her mind on the lunch that awaited her.
Her friends were already there, waiting for her to arrive so they could eat together.
Iris was a literature major at one of the most prestigious universities in the country.
She loved reading and writing, and she had been planning on majoring in literature since she’d received her acceptance letter.
Iris was a dedicated student, and she had worked hard to get into this school.
She was also a dedicated friend, and she didn’t want to make her friends wait for her any longer than she had to.
Iris was practically jogging through the quad, her eyes trained on the grand gray building just ahead of her, when she ran right into him.
He was all dark hair and piercing blue eyes, with an attitude that screamed trouble.
He was beautiful, but he was dangerous, too, and Iris immediately knew who he was.
Nathan Black had a reputation for being dangerous, and he had transferred to the university a semester ago.
Iris’s best friend Paige had told her all about him.
Paige was a psychology major who loved to read as much as Iris did.
She knew everything about everyone, and she’d warned Iris to stay away from Nathan Black.
But like most people who were warned to stay away from him, Iris couldn’t stop herself from being drawn to him anyway.
She hadn’t been able to resist stealing glances at him in class or watching him from afar around campus.
The rumors about him were plentiful and sordid, but Iris didn’t believe that everything she heard was true.
Of course, that didn’t mean that the rumors about him being dangerous weren’t accurate.
He looked dangerous in his black leather jacket and dark jeans.
He looked like a rock star who’d been up all night partying too hard.
His hair was long enough that it curled around the collar of his jacket and brushed against the tops of his shoulders.
He needed a shave, too, because he had dark stubble lining his jaw.
His eyes looked like they hadn’t seen enough sleep—or enough of anything good—in a long time.
But even though he looked like he was completely lost in some kind of internal darkness, he was beautiful, too.
And he looked like he was lost in thought right now.
He wasn’t looking at anyone or anything around him as numerous people filed past them in either direction across the quad.
They were students on their way to class or to eat lunch or study somewhere in the library or any number of other things students did here on the campus during the day.
As they walked past Nathan on either side, they glanced at him in admiration or revulsion as they whispered about him to their friends.
But he didn’t seem to notice them or care what they thought about him.
Whispers of Love: A Tale of Redemption
Iris only saw him, and she couldn’t help but glance over her shoulder to watch him as they walked away.
She’d only run into him, but she couldn’t stop herself from being drawn to him.
She wanted to see more of him, to see what he would do next.
She wanted to know everything there was to know about him, and she didn’t know why.
But she was fascinated by him and intrigued by the darkness she saw in his eyes.
“Babe, what’s with you?”
Paige asked, reaching for Iris’s arm to get her attention.
“You can’t be that hungry.
We’re almost there.”
Iris quickly looked away from Nathan to see Paige watching her with a curious expression on her face.
“Sorry,” Iris said, shaking her head as they walked toward the dining hall once again.
“I was just thinking.”
Paige laughed and shook her head.
“Don’t think too hard.
You’ll hurt yourself.”
Iris smiled as they walked inside and waited for their friends at the front of the line.
She and Paige were soon joined by their friends Mandy and Amanda, who were twins.
They were both studying fashion design and marketing, respectively, and they had a flair for fashion.
They wore coordinated outfits on a daily basis, and they always looked great.
They also seemed more like one person than two because they spent almost every moment together, and they even lived in the same suite in the dorms together.
“Hey, girl,” Mandy said, smiling at Iris as they walked out of the line and toward their usual table in the corner of the dining hall where they always sat together and ate lunch.
“What’s up with you?”
Amanda asked, echoing Paige’s question as they sat down at the table and waited for Iris to join them once again.
“I was just thinking,” Iris said, sitting down next to Paige and across from the twins before she glanced over her shoulder at Nathan once again and saw that he was still watching her from across the room, even though he was at a table with his friends now and she was at a table with hers.
Iris quickly turned away from him so she could join her friends’ conversation and not appear as though she was staring at Nathan, but she couldn’t help but be distracted by his presence anyway.
She didn’t know what it was about him, but she wanted to know more about him.
And she wanted him to tell her all about himself.
Iris watched as Paige glanced over her shoulder at Nathan and then turned back to her with a sly smile on her face.
“I think he likes you,” she whispered, leaning closer to Iris before she grabbed her tray and started eating her lunch again.
Iris glanced over her shoulder at Nathan once again and saw that he was still watching her, too, only now he was staring at her without any kind of expression on his face as if he were trying to read her mind or something.
She quickly turned back around but couldn’t stop herself from glancing over her shoulder at him once again only to discover that he was still watching her with those intense blue eyes of his.
Whispers of Love: A Tale of Redemption
Iris quickly turned back around again so she could concentrate on eating her lunch, but she couldn’t stop thinking about Nathan no matter how hard she tried or how much she tried to focus on the conversation with her friends.
She also couldn’t stop thinking about what Paige had said either.
“Don’t even think about it,” Iris heard Addy say from across the table as she watched Nathan watching her with those intense blue eyes of his once again.
“What?”
Iris asked, turning back around so she could look at Addy, but she already knew what Addy was going to say before she even said it, so she quickly shook her head and replied, “No way.”
“You better not,” Addy said with a smile before she turned back around so she could concentrate on eating her lunch again too.
Iris turned back around too so she could concentrate on eating her lunch once again too, but she knew that wasn’t going to be possible because she couldn’t stop thinking about Nathan no matter how hard she tried or how much she tried to concentrate on something else instead of him instead.
She also couldn’t stop thinking about what if with Nathan either, as in, “What if he really did like her?”
She knew he didn’t like her, though.
At least not like that anyway.
Nathan Black hadn’t liked anyone since his mother had died when he was only ten years old, or at least that’s what everyone said about him anyway because no one really knew anything about him for sure except for a few people who had been brave enough—or stupid enough—to get to know him despite his reputation.
Paige was one of those people.
She had been anyway, back when she was a freshman and Nathan was a junior, even though they didn’t last long because Nathan was too much of a bad boy for Paige’s taste and her father hadn’t approved of their relationship either, but neither of those reasons had stopped Paige from liking Nathan for the short time that they had been together, or at least that was what she told everyone else afterward anyway.
Paige never would have admitted it at the time, though.
She would have denied it up and down, just like Addy did when anyone asked her if she liked Nathan, too.
But Iris had seen the way that Addy looked at Nathan just like she saw the way that Paige looked at Nathan too.
She also saw the way that Nathan looked at Paige and Addy whenever he saw them, too.
She had seen him looking at them in class today and now she saw him looking at her in the dining hall too.
Whispers of Love: A Tale of Redemption
“I can’t believe you’re his tutor,” Paige said as they left the dining hall after they had all finished eating lunch, but Iris hadn’t finished thinking about what Addy had said about Nathan liking her yet.
“I can’t believe you’re his tutor,” Paige repeated again as they walked across the university campus so they could go back inside the library where Iris was due to meet Nathan for their first tutoring session as soon as they got there.
“What do you mean?”
Iris asked, trying hard not to sound as excited as she felt about it because she couldn’t stop thinking about what Addy had said about Nathan liking her either because now she couldn’t stop thinking about what if with Addy too.
“What do you mean what do I mean?”
Paige asked, stopping so she could look at Iris with a frown on her face because Iris kept stopping so she could look back over her shoulder so she could see if Nathan was following them like she thought he might be for some reason.
“He’s going to turn out to be just like you,” Paige said as soon as Iris stopped looking over her shoulder again so she could look back around and face her instead.
“Just like me?”
Iris asked with a frown of her own because she didn’t understand what Paige was trying to say to her at all.
How could Nathan ever turn out to be just like her?
They were nothing alike.
Nathan was nothing like any of them, but there was just something about him that Iris couldn’t help but like for some reason.
At least not so far anyway, but he would turn out to be more like her eventually, wouldn’t he?
He was a literature major like her after all, or at least he was supposed to be otherwise how would he graduate?
“I just don’t think you should get involved with him, that’s all,” Paige replied, shaking her head with a worried expression on her face.
“I’m not getting involved with him,” Iris replied with a frown on her face, but a part of her knew that wasn’t entirely true because he was her tutor after all and that meant that they would have to get involved with each other at least a little bit.
That also meant that she would have to get to know him better too.
Iris didn’t see anything wrong with that, though, even though Paige obviously did.
“I mean it,” Paige said with an even more worried expression on her face.
“I mean it too,” Iris replied, looking at her carefully so she could see if she was serious or not.
Iris knew that she was serious because she hadn’t been this excited about something since she had first started college three years ago, but Iris also knew that Paige was serious too because there really were rumors about Nathan for a reason after all.
Iris also knew that Paige was worried about her because it was only natural for her best friend to worry about her like that, but Iris also knew that Paige really didn’t have anything to worry about because Nathan wasn’t really like the rumors said he was at all because Iris hadn’t seen any evidence of him being like any of the rumors so far anyway.
He might be later, but he didn’t seem like it yet.
In fact, he seemed quite the opposite so far anyway.
He seemed almost normal for some reason, which surprised Iris more than anything else because nothing about him should have surprised her at all considering what she already knew about him before she even met him in person.
“You’re nothing alike,” Paige said with a frown on her face.
“You’re a good girl and he’s a bad boy.”

Iri s
Iris replied, shaking her head because she still didn’t understand what she was trying to tell her at all.
She didn’t see how that had anything to do with their tutoring session anyway.
“Just don’t let your guard down, okay?”
Paige said, giving her arm an affectionate squeeze.
“I won’t,” Iris replied, feeling her heart begin to race for some strange reason that she didn’t understand at all as she and Paige began to walk toward the university library where she was supposed to meet Nathan for their first tutoring session together.
“I mean it, Iris,” Paige said, looking at her carefully.
“I know you do,” Iris replied, looking at her carefully as well.
Iris knew that she was serious, but she was serious too because there was no way that she was going to let anything happen between her and Nathan even if she might want something to happen between them.
Iris just couldn’t help but feel that way because there was just something about Nathan that made her feel things that she had never felt before no matter how hard she tried to tell herself that there wasn’t.
She just hoped that he didn’t feel the same way about her because it would be wrong for him to feel that way about her when they were only supposed to be tutor and student because they would never be anything more than that no matter how much he might want them to be.
“You know I’m only telling you this because I’m your friend, don’t you?”
Paige asked, giving her arm another affectionate squeeze as they walked through the main entrance of the library and began to make their way toward the back where their tutor session was supposed to take place in one of the many small study rooms that were set up for students like them.
Iris asked, even though she already knew that she was only telling her this because she was her best friend and there was no other reason for her to tell her something like this at all.
“I know,” Paige said, nodding her head and giving her arm another affectionate squeeze before she let it go and gave her a worried look.
“I really don’t want you to get hurt.”
Iris began with the same worried expression as her best friend, but a part of her wondered if it was already too late for that because there was no way that she would walk away from him now even if he was like Paige and everyone else said that he was.
Iris shook her head, knowing that she was only telling her this because Paige was her best friend and there was no other reason for her to tell her something like this at all.
“I know,” Iris replied, looking at her carefully for a moment before they finally reached the study room where Nathan was already waiting for them.
