Authors Note: I told myself that when I hit thirty stories I would take the opportunity to say thanks to all the people who have been super supportive of me…but I just kept writing and zoomed right past thirty. So at story number 33 I want to take this chance to say thanks to the following people : Laura (HS…Mini-me), Rashida ( my rambling pal), Terry, Laura B, NsmYlesC (sorry I don’t know your name) and my two recent, but awesome supporters Cindy Q and Chloe( thanks so much for the recommendations) I really appreciate all the positive feedback I have received from you all!
Story summary: It’s a week of firsts for Felicity. Her first RA meeting and her first chance to get to see Ben's new place of employment. And this week also holds a special surprise in store for Felicity.

FELICITY: (VO to Sally) I think I probably will take your advice and visit the den of iniquity and stake my claim…but right now I’ve got some other pressing manners on my plate. I am ten minutes away from my first dorm meeting. It always looked so easy when Noel did it…but suddenly I realize that maybe it looked so easy because he has no problem talking to a crowd…whereas I do. Remember the French club speech you asked me to give…could I have been more dorky?
CUT TO: FOLEY HALL-DAY
FELICITY IS TRYING TO GET THE ATTENTION OF THE RESIDENTS TO START THE MEETING.
FELICITY: Hello…excuse me…could we please quiet down (getting frustrated) I SAID QUIET!
EVERYONE TURNS AND LOOKS AT FELICITY.
FELICITY: Better…okay well first of all…I’d like to introduce myself…I’m your RA…my name is Felicity. I thought maybe we could start off with whatever questions you might have…and I promise to do my best to try and answer them.
GIRL STUDENT: Are we allowed to have boys in our rooms?
FELICITY: Um…yes. The dorms are co-ed. (points to next person) You.
GUY STUDENT: (leering at her) Are the RA’s able to date their residents?
FELICITY: (uncomfortable) Um…no definitely no.
GUY STUDENT: Bummer.
FELICITY: (sarcastic) Yeah…big bummer. (points to next person) Yes.
GUY STUDENT 2: What are your hours of availability?
FELICITY: Feel free to drop by anytime. If I’m not in you can just leave a note on my door and I’ll get back to you.
FELICITY: (VO to Sally) But it actually went pretty well Sally. Everyone seemed pretty normal…I suppose appearances can be deceiving though.
CUT TO: FELICITY’S ROOM-DAY
THERE IS A KNOCK ON FELICITY’S DOOR AND SHE GOES TO ANSWER IT.
A YOUNG FRESHMAN GUY IS STANDING THERE.
MARC: Hi…I uh…well I just wanted to come over and introduce myself personally.
FELICITY: Oh…that’s very nice.
MARC: Yeah…so I’ll go now.
FELICITY: Um…okay…but were you going to tell me your name?
MARC: Oh…how completely…dig me a hole…embarrassing…Marc…(sticks out hand to shake) I mean that’s me…I’m Marc.
FELICITY: (shakes his hand) It’s very nice to meet you Marc.
MARC: (shyly smiles) Thanks.
MARC WALKS AWAY AND FELICITY CLOSES HER DOOR.
CUT TO: BEN’S LOFT-NIGHT
BEN AND FELICITY ARE SITTING ON THE EDGE OF HIS BED AND HE IS TYING HIS SHOE.
BEN: So it sounds like the meeting went good.
FELICITY: Yeah…it really did. I think…I think I’m gonna be able to do this.
BEN: ( reaches over and puts his hand on her cheek) Of course you are. Okay well I’ve really got to go or I’m gonna be late for work. Are you gonna stay here or should I come to the dorm when my shift is over?
FELICITY: Um…I think I’m going to stay at the dorm…in case the residents need me for something.
BEN: Okay…well I’ll probably see you around three am or so then.
FELICITY: Okay…(Ben kisses her and gets up off bed) Actually….
BEN: (turns back around) What?
FELICITY: What would you think of me coming to work with you…just to check it out.
BEN: (shocked) You want to come to the club?
FELICITY: Yes…is there a problem with that?
BEN: (amused) No my little jealous one…no problem…I just think you might be a tad uncomfortable…that’s all.
FELICITY: I’m not a prude. I can handle seeing other naked women.
BEN: (still amused) Sure…sure you can. I can just see it now. It will be interesting to see exactly how red you can become.
FELICITY: You don’t think I can handle it?
BEN: I think…it’s up to you. I have no problem with you coming down.
FELICITY: (VO to Sally) So I did go Sally…and I have never been so uncomfortable and embarrassed my entire life. It’s just this whole different atmosphere and the girls….oh my god…they are for the most part nothing short of perfect. I felt so inferior…so unattractive…so…out of place.
CUT TO: LUCKY LADY-NIGHT
BEN AND FELICITY WALK IN TO THE CLUB. FELICITY IS INSTANTLY EMBARRASSED BY THE SCANTILY CLAD WAITRESS AND TOPLESS DANCERS. LYN COMES OVER TO THEM.
LYN: Hey bro. Who is this fine looking lady?
BEN: This is my girlfriend Felicity… (sarcastic) bro.
LYN: Well hello lovely lady…I am Lyn…and you are fine.
FELICITY: (blushing) Thanks.
BEN: Down boy…go drool somewhere else.
LYN: Fraid I’ll steal her away with my wit and charm?
BEN: Actually…no…not so much.
LYN: Fine…(winks at Felicity) Bye gorgeous.
LYN WALKS AWAY.
FELICITY: He’s certainly…friendly.
BEN: Yeah bordering on obnoxious.
FELICITY: So that’s the guy you want to set Julie up with?
BEN: Yeah…he’s really a great guy beneath all the *charm*
FELICITY: No…really…he seems nice.
BEN WALKS FELICITY OVER TO A BOOTH.
BEN: You can go ahead and sit here. Did you want anything to drink?
FELICITY: Um…no…I don’t think so.
BEN: Okay…if you change your mind (points to bar) The bar is over there…just tell them to put it on my tab. ( kisses Felicity) I’ve got to go clock in.
CUT TO: BACK ROOM-NIGHT
BEN IS CLOCKING IN WHEN TIFFANY COMES WALKING UP BEHIND HIM.
TIFFANY: So you haven’t returned any of my calls.
BEN: I’ve been sort of busy.
TIFFANY: Yeah. I can see that.
TIFFANY: I saw Felicity out there. She and her hush puppies don’t exactly blend in.
BEN: Did you say anything to her?
TIFFANY: What would little miss Brainiac and I have in common?
BEN: She’s a great person Tiff…you should at least say hi.
TIFFANY WALKS OFF AND LYN COMES WALKING UP.
LYN: So bringing the girlfriend…bold move.
BEN: She wanted to come…and what do you mean bold move?
LYN: Could start a fight.
BEN: She’s a little more mature then that.
LYN: I’m just saying…that’s all I’m doing.
BEN: She’ll be fine. Once she meets some of the girls…she’ll see she has nothing to worry about and life will go on as usual.
LYN: You really do live in the land of the deluded.
BEN: What are you talking about?
LYN: I just happen to know that out of the twenty five girls that work here…twenty have a major crush on the boy with the gray eyes.
BEN: (shocked) Really?
LYN: Yeah…really….and the other five that don’t…let’s just say you’re not their *preference.*
BEN: I’m sure you’ve got your information all twisted.
LYN: I’m just saying…watch your back…and probably hers.
CUT TO: FRONT OF CLUB
FELICITY IS SITTING IN THE BOOTH AND TIFFANY COMES WALKING UP.
TIFFANY: Hello Felicity.
FELICITY: (trying to be cordial) Hello Tiffany.
TIFFANY: So you and Ben huh?
TIFFANY: That’s gotta be one for the record books…don’t you think?
FELICITY: Excuse me?
TIFFANY: I mean…you and him…so completely…well different.
FELICITY: Is there a point somewhere in your well thought out monologue?
FELICITY: Yeah…that’s what I thought. Never mind… (sarcastic) and hey it was great to see you again Tiff.
FELICITY GETS UP FROM THE BOOTH AND GOES IN SEARCH OF BEN. SHE RUNS INTO ONE OF THE PATRONS AND CAUSES HIM TO SPILL HIS DRINK ON HIM.
FELICITY: Oh my god…I’m so sorry.
PATRON: No problem…(leering at her) So what’s your name cute thing?
FELICITY: (offended) Well it’s definitely not cute thing…(tries to move past him) excuse me.
PATRON: (holds on to her arm) I’ll excuse you when I’m ready.
FELICITY: okay…what do you say you let go of my arm…NOW.
PATRON: Come on don’t be so b****y. I have tons of cash…I know how you girls love cash.
FELICITY: (shocked) You think I’m one of the…you think I work here?
PATRON: You don’t?
FELICITY: Eww…no….you’ve obviously made a mistake so…let’s just let my arm go now…no harm done.
PATRON: (grabs her arms tighter) I think you’re lying.
FELICITY: and I think you’re drunk…so just let my arm go (grabs tighter) ouch…you’re hurting me.
LYN COMES WALKING OUT OF THE BACK ROOM AND SEES THE GUY MANHANDLING FELICITY.
LYN: Okay bud…fun is over…let the lady go.
PATRON: What lady?
LYN: (grabs guys free arm and puts it behind his back) Okay pal…you just earned yourself the E-ticket ride out of here.
PATRON: Ouch…dude you're breaking my arm let go.
LYN: Tell the lady you're sorry.
PATRON: Forget it. (Lyn tightens arm more) OUCH!
LYN: Tell her you're sorry.
PATRON: Jesus…fine…I’m sorry. Can I go sit back down now?
LYN: Only if you have a seat somewhere outside…say maybe your car.
PATRON: You’re kicking me out?
LYN: Give the boy a prize.
BEN COMES OUT OF BACK ROOM AND WALKS UP TO FELICITY. LYN COMES WALKING BACK AFTER KICKING THE GUY OUTSIDE.
BEN: What’s going on?
LYN: Some goon…thought your girl was a stripper.
FELICITY: Thanks for the help Lyn.
BEN: (concerned to Felicity) Are you okay?
FELICITY: I’m fine…he was just drunk…and obnoxious. I get why they need bouncers in here now.
BEN: (to Lyn) Thanks.
CUT TO FELICITY’S DORM ROOM: NIGHT
FELICITY OPENS THE DOOR FOR HER AND BEN. THEY WALK INSIDE AND BEN PUTS HIS ARMS AROUND FELICITY AND STARTS KISSING HER. HE KICKS THE DOOR SHUT AND MANUVERS HER OVER TO THE BED.
FELICITY: So tonight was interesting.
BEN: (kissing her neck) Uh huh.
FELICITY: Some of those girls are pretty…talented.
BEN SITS UP AT THIS REMARK.
BEN: Felicity…you don’t have to pretend for me.
FELICITY: What do you mean?
BEN: I know you were totally uncomfortable in there tonight.
FELICITY: It was that obvious?
BEN: (laughs) Yes…but that doesn’t make you a bad person.
FELICITY: It’s just…I guess I don’t understand…I mean you’re obviously the prize there.
FELICITY: Come on it was obvious…practically every girl who works there has a *thing* for you…except maybe Denise…I think she has a *thing* for me…maybe.
FELICITY: No…it’s true. The ones who didn’t bother to tell me that…well they were just obvious…”Ben I need you over here”, “Ben could you please help me with my top?” Oh and the girl who bent over in front of you…that was classy.
BEN: You're jealous.
FELICITY: Uh…yeah…can’t see a reason not to be. And Tiffany oh my god…why doesn’t she just wear a sign that says….I want Ben.
BEN: Okay…now your overreacting. Tiffany is the one who made me believe you and I still stood a chance.
FELICITY: Obviously a plan of hers that…backfired.
BEN: Whatever…they can all want me…so what…I just want you…always…and….right now.
BEN PUSHES FELICITY BACK ON THE BED.
BEN: (cont.) Just trust me…I will not hurt you…that is not gonna happen.
BEN AND FELICITY BEGIN KISSING. AS THEY ARE STARTING TO GET MORE PASSIONATE THERE IS A KNOCK AT FELICITY’S DOOR.
BEN: Jesus…who the hell is that?
FELICITY: (untangles herself from Ben) I don’t know…I’ll just be a minute. (Felicity tries to smooth down her hair and clothes before she opens the door) Yes?
MARC: Hi…I know it’s late.
FELICITY: Um…yeah when I said anytime…I really didn’t mean 4 am…I probably should have clarified that.
MARC: Oh so this is a bad time?
FELICITY: Um Yeah…why don’t you come back in…the morning.
MARC: Yeah…that’s probably better…sorry…I’m real sorry.
FELICITY: Yeah…okay…I’ll just see you in the morning.
FELICITY CLOSES THE DOOR AND BEN WALKS OVER TO HER.
BEN: Who was that?
FELICITY: It was one of my residents…Marc.
BEN: Should I be worried that one of your residents came to visit you at 4am?
FELICITY: What? No…of course not…he’s harmless.
BEN BACKS FELICITY UP AGAINST THE DOOR. AND STARTS KISSING HER. THERE IS A KNOCK AT THE DOOR AGAIN.
BEN: I’ll get rid of him. (Ben grabs the knob)
FELICITY: No….I’ll just get rid of him.
BEN CONTINUES KISSING FELICITY’S NECK. FELICITY BREAKS AWAY AND AS SHE OPENS THE DOOR BEN TAKES ONE OF HER HANDS BEHIND THE DOOR WHERE IT CAN’T BE SEEN AND BEGINS SENSOUSLY SUCKING ON HER FINGERS.
FELICITY: Yeah Marc…what is it?
MARC: Well I just realized that we never actually set up a time.
FELICITY: (feeling the effects) Um…no I guess we didn’t…let’s just say eleven…oh..oh..okay?
MARC: Yeah…okay eleven it is. Are you okay? You seemed kind of flushed.
FELICITY: I’m fine…th..thanks for asking. Okay I’ve got to go now. (shuts the door)
BEN PULLS HER DOWN ON TO THE FLOOR AND BEGINS PASSIONATELY KISSING AND CARESSING HER. HE STARTS TO UNDRESS HER SLOWLY AND DELIBERATELY. TOUCHING HER AND CARESSING HER TO A FRENZY. AS THE SUN BEGINS TO PEEK INTO THE ROOM THEY BEGIN TO MAKE LOVE ON THE FLOOR OF HER ROOM.
SALLY: (VO to Felicity) Dear Felicity…it’s an awesome task you have undertaken…becoming a guide to the new crop of freshman. I know that you will do a phenomenal job. I wish I could say don’t worry about the girls at Ben’s place of business…but my gut tells me to advise you to keep yourself informed. It’s not that I don’t trust Ben…if you trust him…I do. It’s just that men are a completely different species than woman…any anatomy class will teach you that. And it’s a visual thing for them…emotions aren’t necessary for them to have sex…whereas with woman…emotions are pretty much a must. I have a surprise for you…one you should be getting pretty much the same time as this tape…I hope you like it.
FELICITY AND BEN ARE SLEEPING IN HER BED. THERE IS A KNOCK AT THE DOOR. FELICITY STIRS AND LOOKS AT THE CLOCK…IT READS 10:55 AM.
FELICITY: Great he’s early.
FELICITY REACHES OVER AND RUNS HER FINGERS THROUGH BEN’S HAIR. THEN GETS UP AND PUTS BEN’S TSHIRT ON WITH A PAIR OF SWEATS. SHE GOES TO THE DOOR AND ANSWERS IT.
FELICITY: You're early Marc….oh my god…Sally?
