Kim stopped, turning in front of Lia to face her. She looked at Lia, intently and uncomfortably. “Was there anything else you were planning to do in there? Anything that you didn’t do?,” she said pointedly.
Lia shifted, and didn’t meet her gaze. Then she looked at Kim directly. “No, there was nothing else. You’re acting weird.” Lia pulled her hand out of Kim’s. Then Lia stiffened, her gaze becoming distant, looking at nothing.
“Dammit,” hissed Kim. Even as she tugged again at Lia’s limp hand, with Lia unconsciously, passively resisting, rocking automatically back on her heels, Kim knew it was too late. She looked closely at Lia who seemed to shiver slightly, still gazing at nothing. Then she heard a soft crackling noise.
Kim looked up and down the hall guiltily. Lia trembled again, leaning forward slightly, and once again Kim heard that soft crackling noise, this time lasting longer. Kim didn’t smell anything yet.
It all happened in a few seconds. Lia blinked and straightened, her eyes focusing. Recognition dawned on her face, only to be wiped out as her whole body twitched. She softly moaned in pleasure, then her breath caught, her hands lightly touching her thighs as she took a half-step forward. ” And then it was all over.
Lia, fully aware, took a half-step towards the wall and leaned against it, her legs trembling.
“Shit, shit, shit,” she repeated to herself. She uncomfortably shifted.
“Yeah, literally,” Kim said softly. She took Lia’s hand, and Lia allowed herself to be led down the hall, taking careful steps.
“Why didn’t I remember?” Lia shivered. “How long does it take me to forget? Wait, I think something happens to you, too.”
“What do you mean,” said Kim anxiously. “I only remember this happening to you, and being too embarrassed to try bringing it up. I try to tell you, but you get really uncomfortable and don’t believe me, and then you treat me weird even though you forget again.”
“I don’t know. I think something weird happens when you take me to our room.”
Kim didn’t have time to think about it, as she had unlocked their dorm room, and they were walking inside.
