Personality
Ellie is a simple girl, one who was never fazed by the glitz and the glam that the Los Angeles world seemed to be filled with, even though it was something that she didn't grow up with, and therefore, took her by surprise. The fact that the rich kids, and the wildly attractive boys, and the glamorous parties and events never swayed her or made her forget her values speaks to not only her simplicity and contentedness in this, but the fact that she just isn't that superficial. She knows that in this world, money speaks, and she values money if it comes with true success, but she isn't one of those kids who will suddenly worship another just because they have a collection of Hermes bags, or a dress that hasn't even hit the runway yet. She's too genuine for that, and it's a trait that she's proud of. She's happy with herself for never letting peer pressure ruin her, and though she would love to attribute it all to her strong sense of self, it isn't that deep. Really, she's just never been much of a social butterfly, so a lot of things, such as big parties and fancy cars, just don't interest her.

She has a tendency to be quiet, and is a better listener than she is a speaker. She's much more lively and animated around friends, but in the general public, she has a tendency to keep her mouth closed and fade into the background. There's no real reason for it, aside from it just being a part of her nature. She's always eben more comfortable observing things than actually being a part of them. It's less dramatic that way, and she's found that while it doesn't always make her life exciting, at least there's a lesser chance that something's going to go wrong if she's not getting herself into crazy situations. Risk taker and dare devil definitely aren't words that would be used to describe her, but she is generally an enjoyable person to be around, especially to friends who see past her quiet exterior.

History
Ellie's upbringing was fairly ordinary. She was born and raised in Edmonds, Washington, a suburb outside of Seattle. Both of her parents worked for Amazon, and their stable careers allowed them to live comfortably in the middle/upper middle class. She was raised as an only child, but only because her mother struggled to carry another child to term after Eloise's birth. There had been complications during her birth that harmed her mother's body, and therefore, after years of trying and spending money on tests, they realized that there hopes for a larger family had to be shut down. When she was ten years old, however, her parents began to foster children. It was nothing crazy like you would see in movies, and it wasn't like they were running an orphanage, but every so often they would have a different child come stay with them. Sometimes it would be just for a day or so, and other times, for weeks or months at a time. Her parents didn't neglect her because of this, but because they explained to her that these children were ones who needed extra love and attention, she sometimes felt bad, as if she were intruding on them, by seeking out attention from her parents. It played a role in shaping her personality to be one where she hates feeling like a bother to people, and tries to sort things out on her own before turning to other people for help.

Art was always something that Eloise was interested. She started taking simple art lessons when she was five, and when she got into middle school, took a class at her public school on sculpting. It turned out that she really had a knack for it, and after winning prizes at a couple of competitions, her parents decided to start pooling the money together to put towards her college education. Plans changed when they were contacted by Crossroads, who thought Eloise would benefit from their array of art programs and connections with major art schools, and her parents sent her there. She's there on a scholarship which covers half of her tuition, so her parents pay the rest, and her boarding fees.

Today was the first official day back on Crossroads Academy's campus, and there was an undeniable air of excitement and jitters on campus. Throughout the morning, cars had driven up the long driveway that led onto the campus, packed to the brink with parents, children, and suitcases filled with everything a teenager could need, only to be drive right back down it a little while later, empty, and usually with teary-eyed parents. It was nothing less than a tradition, and though many felt it was sad to see their parents go, most students did genuinely like Crossroads Academy. The fact that it was located right on the beautiful California coast played a part in it, and it possessing facilities nice enough to rival top colleges was a perk too, but the relationships made while at a boarding school were different than at many normal high schools. They were stronger, or that's what many of Crossroads' students would tell you, anyway.

Like the other dorm advisers on campus, Holly and Brian had spent their mornings acquainting themselves to parents and helping students move into their rooms. They had moved on campus a few days before, and though this meant that their summers were over too, they were both glad that the school year was starting. While Holly had worked as a dorm adviser for four years, and had acted as a dorm adviser for the girls she would be living with this year since they were freshman, Brian was new to this. He had been a faculty member for Crossroads for a year before, but this was the first year that he was going to be a dorm adviser. Life circumstances combined with knowing that his paycheck would look even better if he was a dorm adviser had led him to accepting the additional position, and though he was excited, he was understandably nervous as well. He knew that this position would require him to take on an extra level of responsibility and respect for rules and guidelines, but he also knew that he had to be understanding enough to get a bunch of teenage boys to like him... or at least trust him. It was going to be an interesting experience, that much he was sure of, but he didn't have much time to worry during the morning, as he really had been busy helping kids move in. He was grateful that he had been assigned a senior dorm, only because that meant that there were slightly less parents involved. Senior students were allowed to have cars on campus, and that meant that in some cases, for those who had cars, they were driving themselves onto campus and there were a few less introductions that Brian was forced through. In the girls dorm, Holly was experiencing a similar thing, but by now she knew most of her girls' parents, and for her, introductions were welcomed anyway. She was friendly and bubbly, and far too used to this to be bothered by the first-day events.

While Brian helped some students in 3C of Chase move into their dorm, Holly was on the second floor of Wright Hall. Most of the dormitory room doors were open, with girls coming in and out as they either helped each other move into their rooms, moved into their own rooms, or were in and out socializing. She skimmed the sheet of paper in her hand that listed which room each girl was in, and once she found the name that she had starred, she headed towards dormitory room 2B. The girl's dorm had one new student this year, and Holly thought that it was best that she introduce herself and make sure that the new student, Emma, was getting settled in all right. The door to get into the dormitory was open, so Holly gently pushed it open and entered the common space of the four bedroom dorm. "Girls, is Emma here yet?" Holly called out, unsure if Emma was there herself, or if the other girls rooming there, London, Dytto or Farrah would be there. She knew the other three girls from acting as an adviser to them for the past three years, so introductions there were unnecessary, though she was glad to be back with them as well.

"I love you too mami, but I really must go," Esperanza said coolly as she sat on a bench, holding her iPhone 5S to her ear. The Latina was desperate to get off her phone, the more she talked the more minutes would be wasted while her mother cried drunkenly in Spanish. "I'll call you every week, just like last year, bueno?" Her mother couldn't respond through her tears. Esper, jammed her finger onto the end call button. She didn't really have time for her mother's shit. Just as the girl was getting up, her phone received two text messages. One from London, the other from Dytto. Seeing Dytto's name flash across the screen made her sick. She wasn't ready to deal with what was happening yet. Esper has spent her summer trying to get over her, but failed miserably. Inhaling sharply, she replied to London first.

To: Main Bitch
Outside of Wright Hall, I've spent the past hour trying to calm my delusional mother down. Help me unpack my final things?

She nearly banged her head on the door as she walked into Wright Hall, "Oh fucking shit!" she cursed. Esper had no filter on her mouth. Luckily no one was around to make fun of her. She kicked the door closed behind her as she walked into the common area. There were a few girls in there, most of them she didn't know. "Auntie Snix has arrived on the Bitchtown Express, you besta believe it!" She flipped her burnt umber tresses behind her all diva like. Esper did not know what their reaction was because she was already making her way up the stairs. She was certain that she had the shittiest roommates ever. Natalya Volkova, Katherine Arnault, and Eloise Tailer. She hated two out of her three roommates. Natalya on the other hand, was cool in her book. Once she made her way to the second floor, she pulled her phone out to make some other texts.

To: Dytto
I'm heading to my dorm now, glad to see you missed me too.

She silently cringed at that remark, was that too flirty? Thousands of thoughts raced through her mind as she pushed open the dorm room to 2A. Her face was as white as a ghost. She opened the door to Room A and closed it suddenly. Her eyes trailed to the room that was somewhat complete. She had her dresses hanging up in the closet, some of her clothes in the drawers, and her cheerleading uniform on a hanger near the bed. On the wall was a magnificent painting of the sea which Esper liked looking at when she was stressed. On the walls were a few posters of Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Beyonce, and Britney Spears. She preferred 00's pop music to today's pop music, it was just a little better quality in her opinion. After a few deep breaths, she looked down at her phone. Who the hell freaks out over a text? It shouldn't have been her. She huffed, looking at her contacts. She needed to let Farrah know she was here, otherwise she was sure her bestie would kill her. One to her "boyfriend" Jonnie. They had to make their relationship believable after all. She also needed to send one to Natalya, since she did not see her when she entered the dorm room.

To: Farrah my Babe
You here yet? I literally have the worst roommates ever.

To: Jonnie
You better be at the barbeque. Also make sure to take a mint, your breath smells.

To: Russian Barbie
We're roomies this year with Katherine, it's literally going to be like one of those shitty reality shows.

Joe lived in Las Vegas, which was over a four hour drive to Crossroads Academy. He didn't have his own car, and flights from Vegas to Los Angeles were only around seventy-five dollars, so it was a lot easier for him to fly into Los Angeles and take a bus to Manhattan Beach, than it was to have one of his parents drive him. They both worked and asking them to take off a day to drive him was just unnecessary. He had worked all summer at a local summer camp, and losing $100 on transportation to school sucked, but was something that he could withstand. He had only one suitcase and a backpack filled with belongings by the time that he got to school, but this wasn't really even a representation of his working class status. He didn't own a lot of things, yeah, but he also didn't want a lot of things. He had clothes, some personal hygiene items to get him through the first few weeks, his computer and his school supplies, his violin... and not much more. Anything else that he needed, he knew could be easily purchased on campus on in the surrounding area. While he didn't have a car himself, many of his friends did, and he knew that Crossroads also had a school-run shuttle that drove students into town on the weekends if he really needed something that badly.

He had gotten to school at around nine-thirty, and was completely moved in about twenty minutes later. His move in process only consisted of him dumping his suitcase into the school-provided dresser, and leaving the rest of his things at the bottom of his closet. Unlike many of the other students, he didn't need the personalized furniture and upgraded amenities. His simple personality definitely helped, considering his parents weren't going to finance flat screen televisions and queen sized beds for his room anyway. While he was already tired enough that he wanted to take a nap and catch some z's before the barbecue, his involvement in the student government association meant that that wasn't possible. A few weeks earlier, he had responded to a group email and agreed to join the committee that was helping freshman students move in and get acquainted with the school. All it took was a few minutes of socializing for him to get the energy he had lost while travelling back, and by the time he headed back towards Chase, around eleven, he was ready for the rest of the day. His stomach was definitely ready for the food, if that meant anything, at least, but then again, it was a rare occasion when Joe wasn't ready and willing to eat a feast-sized meal.

This year, he was rooming with Kiffen, Antonio and William, and he hadn't run into any of the three yet since moving in. So, on his walk back to his dorm, he messaged the three, responded to Deanna's group message separately, and also sent out a couple of other texts. By the time that he was entering 2B, he had sent out the following, and a few more to other random Artists.

To: Kiffen, Antonio, William
Hey, have you guys moved in yet? Heading back to the room now if anyone needs help

To: Dytto
Heading back to Chase... had to fulfill my student gov duties by helping the freshman move in. Btw I still want you to join student gov this year. You've got that leadership stuff in you, D-Mac... and don't try to tell me that you're too busy dancing or whatever it is you do. You always seem to have time to let me kick ur ass in ping pong, you can make time to keep your buddy company at those weekly meetings

To: Katherine
Kat! Did you move onto campus okay? Need any help?

To: London
Hey! Hope I see you at the barbecue!

To: Ellie
I better see your face at the barbecue

Joe received answers to most of his text messages. However, a few minutes after sending them, he left his dorm room after receiving a text from the student government president, asking him to come outside to help set up some of the food and drink stations for the barbecue. Joe obliged, but he didn't get out of the building before he ran into the boys' new RA, Brian, who was attempting to help someone's dad move a couch up to the third floor. It didn't fit in the elevator, therefore, the two men had to carry it up two flights of stairs. Even if they hadn't seemed to be struggling, Joe would have offered to help anyway, but since they clearly needed a third person, he offered a hand and the offer was accepted. That led to him helping them with a few other pieces of furniture, and by the time he was finished, it seemed too late to offer to help Will move in. He said he had friends on their way to help him anyway, but knowing Joe, that wouldn't have mattered. He still would have offered to help, even knowing that he and Will weren't actually close friends. They were friendly, but had they not been rooming together this year, it would be unlikely that they would even be seen outside of a classroom together. He opted against answering Will's message, mostly because it seemed unnecessary, but did text back Dytto, and followed it up with another text to Eloise, and one to Rachel.

To: Dytto
Sorry, was helping someone move in or else I would've come by. Come to the barbecue. I'm heading down there now.

To: Ellie
Do you need help moving in, by the way?

To: Rachel
Rachel! Tell me you're on your way to the barbecue

Those who didn't answer his texts included Katherine and London, and really, he had no reason to be surprised. Both girls were A-listers, so that said enough, and though both returned his kindness to an extent, even him, in his ultra-friendly state, knew that they weren't actually friends. Kat was his dream girl and London was everyone's dream girl, but he was aware enough to know that the only time they were actually going to reciprocate his genuine kindness was exactly that - in his dreams. It wouldn't stop him from being nice to them, especially since he was that way with everyone, though.

The barbecue was being held on the lawn right outside of the courtyard that separated the senior girls and boys dorms. Underclassmen would be present as well, and though Joe was arriving early into the barbecue, he wasn't surprised to see that the area was already buzzing with hungry students. A tent had been pitched, and underneath it sat a buffet styled selection of just about any type of barbecue food that one could want, plus an array of coolers with drinks. Although Joe wanted to wait for some friends before sitting down, he couldn't resist going over to the lie that had formed by the food and taking his spot. Maybe he wouldn't actually sit down and eat yet, but with his appetite, it was probably in his best interest to at least begin filling his plate now.

"I know, I know, senior year is the time for me to have
'fun'... if only it was that easy."

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
"You've got everything you need, then? You're sure?" Theresa Tailer, Eloise's mother asked, as Eloise stood beside the passenger side of her family's car. Her mother sat beside the window, and her father in the driver's seat, just as her father was getting ready to pull out of the school's parking lot. "Yeah, I have everything that I need. Thanks for all of the help," she reassured her mother, before looking further into the car at her father, with a lighter smile. "I really hope you didn't actually throw out your back, dad. I told you that I could have asked someone to help you move that television in," she said, a small giggle escaping despite her will to suppress it. "Me? Nah, I'm alright. You know my saying, 'if you want it done right, do it yourself'. Your old man never needs help, you should know that by now, Ellie," he insisted confidently, in a way that made her mother roll her eyes and follow up with, "And that's exactly why it took us an extra hour to get here. You've been here how many times, and not even that or the GPS was enough to keep you from taking us on a 'short cut'?" Before her father could answer and defend himself, Theresa's smile turned softer and she returned her gaze to her daughter. "Don't let us keep you any longer. Go out to that barbecue and have a good time, Ellie. Really, have fun this year. We know you'll do good, but we want you to have some fun too, okay? And you know that we're just a phone call away if you need anything."

Eloise knew that she really was lucky to have such great parents. The issues that she had with her parents were infrequent and minor, and though some of that could be related to how she only really lived with them for three or so months out of the year, they really did get along well. She respected them, and they treated her maturely, allowing her the freedom that most teenagers her age lusted over. As her mother seemed to be hinting at, it wasn't a level of freedom that Eloise abused though. She wasn't the kind of teenager who drank or used drugs, or snuck out late at night or threw parties when her parents weren't home. It just... wasn't her. She was the kind of girl who enjoyed fading into the background. That was where she was comfortable... where she could see everyone else, but no one else really saw her. Maybe it was a little bit less fun and exciting on that side of things, but it was safer there. "Alright, I'll Facetime you guys tomorrow. Love you," Eloise said, a wave being enough to send off her parents, since they had gotten through the emotional hugs and all earlier, after her parents helped move her in.

With them gone, she could go to the barbecue, and only since she was hungry, did she decide to do that. Big gatherings weren't really her scene, and she much preferred the idea of readjusting to her school dormitory setting over socializing, but even she couldn't turn down barbecue food. Her attention remained focused on her phone for a few moments as she returned a few text messages, including one to Joseph.

To: Joe
Haha I'm on my way there now! And yeah, my parents just left. I'm all moved in.

It didn't take long after the message was sent for her to spot Joseph filling his plate, but the boy standing beside him made her resist the urge to go over to her friend. Liam wasn't someone that she had any intention of interacting with, and she thought that returning to her dorm would have been the preferable choice over having to socialize with him. Her grumbling stomach rejected that option very quickly, but she decided to start at the opposite end of the barbecue, just to relieve herself of having to interact with the blonde. Starting at the opposite end didn't disappoint her either, since she was able to fill her plate with a burger and french fries, and grab a water bottle as well. It was all she wanted, and after getting everything, she headed across the lawn to an empty table and sent out another two text messages.

To: Joe
I'm not sure if you're going to sit with your other friends, but I found a table if you want to come over!

To: Fred
Hey Fred, are you at the barbecue? I missed you this summer!

Frederick could not believe the gift Natalya gave him. This was greater than anything he has ever gotten in his entire life. There was so much that he was almost speechless. When it was handed over to him, he practically choked out his thank you. The nerd continue to geek over the endless amount of gaming opportunities with the new consoles, games, and gift cards he just got. He stayed through the end of the gift giving. Everyones gifts were both thoughtful and expensive. He could not imagine What he would have to get the Russian to make up for this. But he would think about it later. Freddy took his gift and headed back to his room. He wanted to put it away and then join everyone at the barbeque. He was starving and food was an absolute must.

It wasn't long before everything was put away and he headed back down the to where everyone was. But he was taking his time. Dytto texted him, wondering where he was.

To: Dytto
I put my systems away. I'm headed to the barbeque now.

With that message sent, he continued on his way. It wasn't long before he had another buzz. Dytto was a fast texter, always stuck to her phone, but that was unreasonable fast. He saw that it came from Eloise. He smiled softly and quickly tapped away at a response.

To: Ellie
On my way!

Frederick saw everyone mingling at the barbeque. First he spotted Dytto and Nathan with Natalya. Probably talking about her need to buy expensive gifts. He was going to join them, but then he saw Ellie at a table by herself. He hadn't seen her all summer or talked to her much. They were friends and it would be nice to catch up again. He headed toward her table and then sat down across from her. He smiled brightly. "Hey Ellie! How's it hanging?"

William could not believe that the Russian had bought him some many different tea sets and a billion different types of tea leaves. There was endless possibilities when it came to tea now. He was more than excited to try this right away. But he wanted the first cup to be with the person that bought it for him. After classes this afternoon, he would ask her to come hang out in his room so they can have some tea. When Farrah wasn't around of course. She would get the second cup. Speaking of which, he hadn't heard from her since she told him that he was on his own from moving in. As Will pulled his phone out to message her, someone tapped his shoulder. "Excuse me? Can you help me? I'm looking for a Brit."

William and Farah laughed before hugging each other. Best friends united after an entire summer away from each other. Once they pulled from the embrace, Farrah crossed her arms and looked over him. "So how was the Queen?" She asked, knowing full well that he did not see the Queen this summer. "Well. In fact, she insisted on meeting you. How's the President?" Farrah waved his hand dismissively. "Always requesting my dancing. I turned him down. Again." hey both managed to keep a straight face, before breaking out into laughter once again. The dancer ran her fingers through her hair and glanced over at Natalya, Dytto, and Nathan. The two people she hated surrounding her boyfriend. How lovely? He had such a great taste in human beings. William caught her glaring and snapped his fingers. "If you keep staring, it won't be a secret anymore." Will told her. Farrah just rolled her eyes and peeled her gaze away from her mancandy of a boyfriend.

She caught sight of Liam and smiled bright before looking back at William. "Let's go entertain to the king." Will chuckled a little before following after the dancer. They stood close to Liam, who was talking to Joe. Farrah kept her arms crossed not really attempting to be friendly. Will on the other hand smiled bright. "Hey Liam, Joe." He said, making up for Farrah's unfriendliness. He never understood why she never attempted to make friends with people. It would save her a world of trouble.

LIAM NIELSEN

"The options are limitless."
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
Liam read Dytto's text message but didn't answer. That was done in part because he was annoyed, and knew that she wasn't the only girl he could have sex with, so he wasn't going to beg, and because a minute after he and Joe began chatting, Joe disappeared, and was replaced by Farrah and William. Their presence brought a more genuine smile to Liam's face, since they were people who he actually considered to be friends. Liam was friendly with many people who weren't A-listers, but like anyone who benefited from such a rigid social system, he knew better than to call many of those people actual friends. "Look who it is. The David Beckham wannabe, and the Dancing Queen. Took you two long enough to find me," he commented with a grin, as he continued to fill his plate. He allowed for a silent pause for a moment as he decided whether he wanted a soda or a water with his meal, but after opting for the latter, he turned back towards them. "So, what's been good with you two all summer? I'm surprised that I didn't run into either of you in the Hamptons." That was where Liam had spent a fair amount of time over the summer, and it wasn't out of the ordinary to have seen some classmates there, since the Hamptons seemed to be the playground of the rich and famous, during the summer months.

When London came over, Liam didn't even hide the fact that he was checking her out from behind. She had an attitude towards him, that much was clear, at least to him, who knew her well, but that was cool. He liked them feisty, and he was still positive that he would get her back within the first month of school. Plus, if for some reason that didn't happen, his second option would be her tall and gorgeous best friend that stood beside her. Since London made it clear that she only wanted to address Farrah, Liam didn't go out of his way to address her either, but he did look towards Will with a bit of a smirk. Later, when they were alone, he would fill him in on how easy he knew it was going to be to get London back in bed with him. For now, though, he just said, "Dude, you better start filling your plate before everything's gone."

"Hey Fred!" she said, her smile growing as the boy sat down beside her. Eloise was past the point of feeling weird about sitting along, but she wasn't going to refuse company, especially if it was someone who was as fun and sweet as Frederick was. "I'm good, what about you? What did you do this summer?" she asked, only before noticing that he didn't have a plate of food in front of him. She was already halfway through her own burger and wasn't going to stand for Fred missing out on the deliciousness that the barbecue was offered, even if it meant forcing him away for a few minutes to fill his plate. "Go make a plate! Maybe it's just because I haven't eaten all day, but the food is really good again this year." That in itself wasn't really surprising. Ellie wasn't a picky eater to begin with, but Crossroads also always seemed to be on top of making sure that the quality of their food was perfect. Considering the cost of tuition that so many students paid, that should have just been a given, though. Regardless, she was never disappointed with a meal she had on campus, whether it was at an event like this, or just an everyday meal at Waves.

Ellie wasn't close with Natalya, so she wasn't too knowledgeable on her annual gift-giving event, or else she would have questioned Fred on what he had gotten that year. She hoped that he was going to get food, so she probably wouldn't have had time to go into depth on how well he had moved in anyway, but regardless, Ellie appreciated how easy it was to just hang out with Fred. She was the kind of girl who was usually very quiet, preferring to listen over talk, but there were a handful of people who she felt comfortable enough after to really be herself around, and he was one of them.

While William was entertaining the nobody, Farrah decided to get herself a plate of food. She did not get so much since she was not all that hungry. The dancer needed to keep up her body shape anyway. If she ate too much then she would not be able to move the way she does. Finally Joe disappeared, so the dancer could now talk to her friends. Picking at her food, Liam addressed her and Will. She rolled her eyes at him playfully. Of course she was going to find him. He was one of her close friends, how could she not find him. He asked about their summer and Farrah was trying to think of something that didn't involve at her secret rendezvous with Nathan. "Too busy in Dominican Republic to visit the Hamptons." She said. That wasn't a lie. She did travel there during the summer.

Will might have known she was lying, but he did not say anything about it. That was an added brownie point for him. London and her right hand Katherine approached the food which Farrah and her friends seemed to be blocking. The dancer did her part and smiled at the Queen. Crossing her was not on her list of thing to do this senior year.

"Farrah, you should totally come sit with Kat and I,"

Farrah raised an eyebrow in sheer confusion. 1. London was being nice to her and Esperanza was not around. 2. She was invited her to join her and Katherine. Farrah did not have a problem with either of them, but they weren't close. London may be her roommate, but she wasn't expecting the two of them to be painting their toe nails together. And Katherine was just another situation all together. Liam and Will didn't seem to mind if Farrah joined them, so she shrugged and agreed. "See you two later." She said.

Following the royal towards a table, she sat so that she was sitting across from the both of them. "So how were your summers?" She asked politely.

William talked to Joe since Farrah was not going to. In fact she was probably going to refrain to talking to anyone that wasn't A-List. That made him chuckled internally. Even Liam was talking to Joe. But Miss Dancing Queen would never. Joe excused himself and his attention was on his best friend. Will smiled at the comment comparing him David Beckham. They were pretty similar. Foreign and great at soccer. Not an insult. More like a future aspiration. Liam asked about their summer and Farrah jumped at the chance to answer. William already knows what Farrah did this summer, but apparently he was going to be the only person that was going to know.

William was going to answer, but then London arrived. He caught Liam checking her out and managed to keep the laugh to himself. HE smiled politely at the Queen. She might have issues with Liam, but she was still nice and friends with the Brit. As expected she did not address Liam. Unexpectedly, she invited Farrah to sit with her and Katherine. Farrah was confused, but when to sit over there, leaving Will and Liam alone.

When they were far away enough, Liam spoke up again about the food. The Brit almost forgot. William piled his plate with food. His plane ride was long and he hasn't eaten. This would be his first meal and a very long time. He already knows its going to taste like heaven."Oh. My mum says hi." he said, after getting his food. William talks about his friends back home and they love all of them. His mother especially has been trying to get his friends to visit. "How was your summer?"

Frederick was more than ready to explain his summer, if he wasn't cut off by Eloise encouraging him to go and get a plate of food. He was so concerned with seeing his friends that he had almost forgotten how hungry he was. "I will be right back" He explained before getting up. He did a light job over to the food and glanced over at all of it. It all looked so good, but the food here always looked and tasted great. A lot of money went into this place, if the food was anything less of amazing there would be a riot. Frederick happily piled his plate high, eager to eat every last bit of it. He grabbed a can of soda before returning to the table.

He slid into the chair across from Eloise once more and smiled. "I really missed the food here." he said before taking his first bite. Just like he thought, the food here was perfect. "To answer your earlier questions, I just played video games and worked this summer." He said to her with a shrug. It's what he does every summer. Every once in a while he will be able to go on vacation, but he mostly works to make sure that he has money for the school year. Unlike the rich kids, he has to pay for his own stuff.

"What did you do this summer?" He asked, before going back to eating the food in front of him.
