Skimmons || College Roommates AU, Part 1
Skye had gotten a scholarship to the university. Full ride. Everything paid for. All she had to do was show up and maintain at least a 3.5 grade point average. She arrived at the dormitory and took only a few minutes to set up her side of the room. She didn’t own much. That dorm room would be the first steady bed she’d had in a while.
She finished making the twin bed next to the window and sat on the edge of it. She looked over at the empty bed on the other side of the room. She wondered what her roommate would be like. And would they get along? Would she finally be able to make a friend that wouldn’t leave her? Skye was excited. But even more so, she was scared.
What she didn’t know was that her soon to be roommate, Jemma Simmons, was just as terrified. Jemma had watched as Skye walked into the room half an hour earlier. She had instantly felt something claw at her heart. She sat on the ground out in the hallway, trying to pull herself together. She knew she had to put on a brave face, something she wasn’t very good at. She needed to pretend that whatever she may have momentarily felt when she first saw the other girl was just a fluke. Nerves, maybe. It was a new school and a new environment after all. Or maybe it was something she had eaten earlier.
Jemma picked up her bags and walked into the room. Skye stood up, a grin gracing her face.
