Chapter 2:

Welcome to UniverCity!

Annika Says No!

New beginnings, new hot babes!

I sat over the edge of the ship’s balcony to look at the massive island from a distance. The smell of the saltwater breeze tickled my nostrils. Aiming my finger like a gun, I let out a sound.


UniverCity, a city full of skyscrapers, ready to be conquered by yours truly, Kwan Kalor!

People say college is the best time of your life. To that, I wholeheartedly agree. I am finally free from the constraints of my family, and I can do whatever the hell I want here! Whether it be partying all day, drinking all night or banging some baddies, I’ll live out all my desires and pleasures here to the fullest!

Thanks to the seclusive nature of UniverCity, I no longer have to worry about anything on the outside world. It’s such a bother to even think about it!

“Hey! Get off the balcony!” A voice yelled at me.

I didn’t pay any mind to the voice, and I continued to gaze into the horizon. The man was awfully persistent though. His voice only grew as loud as his footsteps, to which I could tell he was closing in on me. He tapped my shoulder, so I finally decided to look at him and scoffed.

Ah, just some ordinary middle-aged guard.

“All right, boss, whatever you say!” I hopped off the balcony and looked down on the guard.

The guard flinched as he looked up at me. “Ah-uh, y-you’re quite tall, um….sir!”

“And handsome too,” I brushed my jet-black hair.

“Y-Yes, of course!”

“Thanks, buddy.”

I tapped the guard’s shoulder and walked away. A group of ladies were watching the scene from the sidelines, so I decided to turn my head towards them in slow motion and gave them a smile. They looked at each other as red as tomatoes and let out some squeals.

Heh, no one can resist my charming crimson gaze. It’s my most powerful weapon.

After a long journey, the ship had finally arrived at its destination. I stepped out into the port of the city and took in all of the fresh air coming my way.

Ahhhh, it’s great to finally be here. My university life begins now.

I ventured deeper into the city and looked above in awe. Buildings surrounded me in all directions, towering over the roads like giants. People of different races and nationalities walked along the streets, some even wearing a variety of clothes I’ve never seen before. A myriad of stores surrounded the place, all fighting for my attention. I couldn’t help but take a peek inside each of these stores.

It was hard for me to stay still in one place, so I was hopping from store to store, constantly looking for something else. Clothing brands, cafes, restaurants, toy shops, you name it! There’s too many sights to see out here in UniverCity!

But the best sights of all…..are those two giants right across the street! That’s right. A tanned babe, with two humongous badonkers poking out was just around the area!

I placed my hands in my pocket, and approached the busty lady in question.

“Hey,” I nodded at the lady.

The lady turned around and gave me a confused look. I looked down towards her chest line, the border between two mountains and looked her straight into her eyes. For normal people, it was easy to think that this girl appeared uninterested and would give up at this point. However, my observational skills were top-notch. The slight shift in her body movement, the subtle peachy color on her cheeks and the look away were all signs that she either found me creepy or attractive.

“You look pretty cute, can I have your number?” I smiled.

That is why the best method would be to act calm and casual to ensure it’s the latter.

“U-Um, I have a boyfriend.”

Ah, the classic boyfriend line. If she says something like this, then it’s best to pull back.

“That’s too bad. Your boyfriend’s pretty lucky to have someone as gorgeous as you,” I turned away and waved my hand.

Women can be quite delicate creatures. You have to be careful with the way you act towards them. If you get too aggressive, you get labeled as a creep. It’s better not to act desperate. After all, there’s plenty of fish in the sea. Who cares if you get rejected?

Besides, guys who don’t take things too seriously tend to get all the women in the end.

“W-Wait,” the lady called out to me. I turned my head and gave her a grin.


“The name’s Kwan Kalor,” I said. “You can message me anytime.”

“What do you think you’re doing with my girl?”

A man with a buzzcut yelled as he exited a store nearby. He wore a sleeveless shirt, exposing all the tattoos drawn from his shoulders all the way to his forearms. Ugh, what a pain.

“Listen man, I just wanted to give your girl a compliment. That’s all,” I raised my hands up in the air.

“You were obviously hitting on her!”

“Sorry, sorry, I’ll just be leaving now.”

I tried to walk away, but the man grabbed my shoulder. I glared back at the man, causing him to flinch a little. However, he stood his ground and stared back into my eyes. He tightened his grip on my shoulder, which annoyed me a little.

“Hey, you’re not getting off the hook easily,” the man said.

“Please let go of me, I’m not interested in fighting.”

“Shut up! I will not tolerate this disrespect! Eat my fist!”


Before the man could connect his fist with my cheek, I slammed my knee against his stomach. Saliva from his mouth splashed onto my shirt, which struck a nerve in me.


I punched the man square in the face, knocking him off instantly on the ground.

The tanned lady stared at me in shock, unable to move even a single muscle.

“I’m still open for hook-ups,” I winked and walked away.

I lifted my phone from my pocket and checked my messages. Most of them were messages coming from women I’ve chatted with before, but that’s not what I was aiming for right now. I clicked on the top-most message, which was from one of my good friends, Max.

[Max: Hey bro, let’s get some drinks over at the Black Cat’s Bar at 6. What do you say?]

I typed on the phone and sent my message.

[You: Hell yeah, I’m down!]

[Max: All right, I’ll send you the location right away!]

I closed my phone and continued walking.

It’s still 4 in the afternoon, so I had two hours left to continue exploring the city. At this point, I had grown tired from checking out all of the stores and had nothing left to do for the day. I guess now would be a good time for my daily dose of nicotine.

I searched around for any designated smoking areas only to realize that I had already wasted a couple of minutes. No matter where I went, there didn’t seem to be any of them close by. The itch to do it was only growing stronger, and I was slowly starting to get irritated.

Do they even have any places to smoke around here?

I gritted my teeth and scratched my head. My feet tapped against the floor uncontrollably, and my mind began to feel a little foggy.

“Screw this.”

I couldn’t take it anymore, so I decided to settle with a quiet underpass with no sight of anyone closeby. If anyone passes by, I’ll just threaten them if they try to snitch.

I grabbed a pack from my pocket, picked up a single cigarette, and sparked up my lighter. A little flame popped out, then all I had to do was stick it in…..

“Hey! You’re not supposed to smoke around here!” a lady’s voice interrupted me.

Damn it, this stupid lady. Can’t she see that I’m just trying to have some relief-


Before I could begin to lash out, the first thing I saw was her black tights. They did well to adjust themselves to the shape of her legs, drawing all the way up to emphasize the thickness of her curvy hips. Yep, they do not lie. She appeared to be the modest type though, sporting a blue gray hoodie that covered her shoulders. A shame, considering how I can clearly see the shape of her chest bulging out from the inside.

Hmm…but that won’t be enough to hook me in. After all, a woman’s face is what matters the most.

She lifted off her hood, revealing snow white hair tied up to a ponytail. Her nape was fully made bare to see, which lit up a little spark down my pants. I was ready to open up with one of my signature pickup lines, right until I caught a glimpse of her face. Those eyes of hers……

I dropped my cigarette and froze in place.

Blue eyes.

“Can you please stop staring at me and pick up that cigarette?” she asked.

A huge gulp ran down my throat. Every part of me was telling me to run. Far, far away.

“I-I’m sorry…..I didn’t want to do it,” I muttered under my breath.

“Uhuh,” the girl raised an eyebrow. “But you’re doing it.”

“T-That’s not what I meant,” I instinctively started to step back.

Shivers ran down my spine, my hands trembling from the pressure. The inside of my stomach started to swirl up inside. I had come face to face with my biggest fear.

“I don’t understand what you mean…” the girl tilted her head.

She squinted her eyes towards me, as if she was trying to remember something. Something in her eyes sparked, like a light bulb had flicked at the top of her head.

“W-Wait, is that you, Kwan?”

“N-No, that’s not me,” I looked away.

“It is you!”

I shook my head.

“I’m not a virgin!”

I blurted out those words and ran away.
