☽ β€œ Being yourself is one of the hardest things because it's scary.
You always wonder whether you'll be accepted for who you really are.
I decided to call my record 'Inside Out' because that's my motto about life.
I don't think you ever succeed at trying to be anyone else but who you truly are.” ☾

Hayden has a rather ectormorphic body type. He's short for his age, but also extremely lank and thin.

E Y EXC O L O R

His eye color depends on his mood really, it can vary between browns and greens to blues and grays. It really is based on how he feels that particular day.

S K I NXT O N E

His skin is very pale, almost an ivory white. But it does have some hints of tan/peach on them.

H A I RX:XC O L O RX||XT Y P EX||XL E N G T H

Hayden's chestnut hair is cut short, that way it remains out of his face. Actually, that's jut how he brushes it. If he left it flat, his hair would in face fall down towards his face. Almost reaching his eyes.

G E N E R A LXA P P E A R A N C E

One could describe Hayden as a feminine male. Which, they wouldn't be wrong, but they wouldn't be exactly right either. His body structure, is just more lean than most males. He's shorter than his expected height, and tends to find numerous problems about it. Hayden is a bit more toned than people would expect, since he was younger he has always kept a healthy body size and weight. He has dark chestnut brown hair, that seems to continuously get in his way. His eyes are a deep kaleidoscope of colors. His skin is a light ivory color.

S T Y L E

Things that aesthetically go well together. Normally that means he can be seen wearing sweaters, black pants, boots. His outfit style is what earned him his nickname Tumblr, as he seems to resemble the models on there. He always can be seen wearing rings or bracelets of any type. He's normally not the type to wear makeup, but he does occasionally wear eyeliner to give his eyes a beautiful setting.

P E R S O N A L I T Y

Like most people say, like mother like son. In terms of personality, Hayden gets it from his personality. He's an exact clone of his mother. From their equally cocky outer selves, to their intelligent and sensitive inner selves. They are alike. Hayden is cocky, and rather competitive. He tends to make everything seem like a competition. This isn't the reason why he dislikes the Betas, but in someways this makes them similar. When people challenge Hayden, he views as his image is on the line. He will never back down from a challenge, unless he could physically get hurt or someone else could. Out of all this cockiness, a sarcastic personality is the outcome. He is always making wise cracks, and playing jokes on his brothers in the fraternity. He honestly is the goofiest, if not, one of the goofiest boys in the Kappa Alpha house. He's pretty much down for about anything. Sometimes though, despite having a caring nature deep inside, Hayden can be insensitive. He doesn't always get the best timing when it comes to emotions or feelings. This is one of the few traits, he will compare himself to his father with, because they are both like that. Like his mom, Hayden likes to maintain a good social image. It's how his mother basically trained him.

He believes that your image, means everything. Not that he's vain, but it's how people judge you. This is why he's not very loud about his own sexuality. He feels like others will not wish to befriend him, ruining his own social image. Hayden's also somewhat selfish. Not as in the "everything is mine" way, but in the way of "I'm too personally attached to this person, and I will try to make my own ambitions what's best for them". This is what claimed to be why his parents divorced, because of his mother's doing this.

Underneath the mask he has, Hayden is a mom. He's loving, and kind. He's the fairy squadmother of Kappa Alpha. Despite being one of the youngest members. He has taken up the habit of "momming" out on his fellow Kappas. He makes sure they eat, healthy of course. He makes sure they don't leave pigsties, he makes sure they actually exercise correctly. He's not very bossy, but can get very scary fast. He just claims, they need someone to watch after them, if he's that then so be it. He's also a nerd, he loves anything relating to mythology or Dungeons and dragons. Who doesn't like being a Cleric who sets others on fire? Hayden is very passionate about his music, and loves to play for others. He sees a future in it, and won't back down.

Hayden was born on a stormy night in August. His mother Alexandra, and his father Aaron were arguing the previous weeks, planning a divorce. But the birth of Hayden, seemed to cancel that. They thought they would try to work things out for both of their children. It worked for awhile, Alexandra was a successful business woman in London. Aaron, made a decent living as a lawyer. Things went fine. Hayden grew to have more of his mother's traits which made his seventh birthday somewhat terrible.

When Hayden turned seven, his parents announced that they were getting a divorce. His father had found a man that he actually loved, and stated that they were moving to the United States to start a life. Hayden objected, he and his brother wanted to stay with his mother, but his father won custody. So they against their will were to move to the U.S with their father. This started numerous problems, both children shut their father and newfound step-father out of their life. They became close, and soon developed a bond nobody could beat. This helped Hayden a lot throughout middle school. In middle school, Hayden was bullied. His accent that retained, was often made fun of. He was called a faggot, which he never understood how that became a slur, and was often in fights. Adam, his brother, was also in fights on his little brother's behalf. This was when he developed his love for music, it helped him from ending everything. It wasn't until his freshman year, of high school, he became more serious about it.

High school. The root of all personality change, teenage pregnancy, peer pressure, and judgmental stares. In high school, he was subjected to a numerous amount of struggles. His grades were dropping, his father was getting remarried, and his brother had dropped out to live on his own. He turned more to music, and to his best friend, Liam. Liam and Hayden became friends, and were close. One day, during them hanging out, they ended up kissing. People spread rumors about them, and Hayden limited interaction. His social image was what he was raised to have, and was what he wanted. He found out he was homosexual through this, and left his friend Liam in the dust. He told his family, but that was all. He eventually graduated, and he would have started at Fulton. Joining Kappa Alpha, and becoming the mom of the group. He now is going to focus on his career, and passing school.

Location: Miami, Florida, USA
Time: 8:15 PM
Most people spend Sunday trying to prepare themselves for the droll and unwanted responsibilities that come about come the dreaded Monday morning. They sip their tea, drink that last bit of wine, and lay in bed trying to decide if they're really going to be petty enough to pretend like they're sick in this call to their office, scrounging up every excuse in the book as to why they can't go to work, school, or wherever the daylight happens to take them. However, for the students at Fulton University, instead of the lackadaisical doings of their typical Sunday evenings, the air around campus (and throughout the city) is alive with anticipation as people pre-game and prepare for a night of carefree drinking, dancing, and even drama...

...especially drama, particularly when the Greek life students are involved.

Some students are still in dorms, apartments and houses getting ready for the Guys in Ties & Girls in Pearls event hosted by Fulton's own Greek Life Alumna Association. Girls are just finishing the finishing touches to their hair or just sliding into velvet dresses, lacing up and slipping into heels of various styles. Sipping on glasses of wine or champagne, giggling over their shared excitement over how the night could unfold and the plans they've already made. Maybe even the tipsiness they already have. And guys are fastening on cuff links, straightening up the suits some just got from dry-cleaning or delivered by their favorite tailoring services. Quaffing glasses of scotch or taking shots to the head in preparation for how absolutely trashed they're bound to be by night's end.

Regardless of where everyone is - even those who are known for being rather prompt as opposed to fashionably late - it's bound to be a night of sensuous, luxurious, riveting and possibly even scandalous fun...so just like the Alumna Association asked on twitter, where can we find you?

Ben stood at the foot of his bed, looking at himself in the mirror that hung on the wall across from him. He smoothed out the arms to the all black suit he was wearing for this evening's alumni event. The idea of skipping out on the evening's event still muddled over in his head. Normally, Ben would be overly excited to show off a new suit he got, or to interact socially with others as he loved to do. Tonight, however, was different than most days. He and Ayala haven't had much interaction since their break before the summer started, and he knew that today would be the day where they're forced to interact. Ben knew how to be civil, of course, but they haven't spoken in months. Things between he and Ayala hung in the balance and Ben was unsure which way things would be leaning.

As Ben continued to gaze at himself in the mirror, making sure that he looked presentable, he heard a soft knock at his bedroom door. "Come in," he spoke as softly as the knock landed. The door opened, and his sister's head popped in through the small opening she allowed herself. Ben smiled at his sister as she swung the rest of the door opened and she let herself fully enter the room. "Hey Bea, what're you doing here?" Beatrice sat herself down behind her brother on his bed. "I just wanted to see you off tonight, make sure you're doing okay." Ben turned around to face his sister and shyly smiled. "You mean you came to make sure my heart wasn't still broken over Ayala."Bea stood up and brought her hands to her brother's neck and adjusted his bowtie so that it sat straight under his collar. "Maybe, but can you blame me?" Ben broke eye contact and shook his head 'no' - his phone vibrated in his pocket at the same time. He pulled it from his pants to see Yaya had been the one to text him. He pressed his thumb to the home button on his iPhone and it unlocked. The message read nothing more but a simple 'hello' from the girl. It wasn't much but it was everything to Ben. "Speak of the devil," Ben chuckled, showing his sister the message that just came through on his phone. Beatrice smiled softly, "just be careful, okay? I'm heading home for dinner with mom and dad, I'll tell them you say hi." Ben nodded to both parts of her statement, exchanged a hug with her and walked her to his bedroom door. He closed the door behind him and looked back at the screen of his phone where a five-letter world taunted him. He didn't know what to send her without sounding desperate to see her so he simply wrote back, 'hey. what's up?'

The anxiety of waiting for the three-dotted speech bubble to pop on his phone prompted Ben to quickly slide his phone back into his pocket. He walked over to the his bedside table, grabbed his bottle of Whitewater Rush cologne and sprayed his neck, his chest, and his left wrist with the scent. He spread the smell on both wrists and across his entire neck. He grabbed his watch and made his way downstairs as he strapped it on. As Ben made his way down the stairs, he shouted out to any of the guys in the house, "Anyone riding with me, or are you all taking the shuttle? I've got an uber coming in less than 5!" Ben wasn't sure if Hayden or Danny were in the house getting ready, he knew that Nick was with Amaris, but he wanted to make sure that no one got left stranded at home. A ping came from Ben's phone, he checked it to see the notification that the uber was outside. "If you're riding with me, you've got two minutes to get your ass downstairs and into the uber!" Ben's shoes clacked against the hard floor of the house as he walked out the front door and towards the car that was waiting. Ben got into the car and confirmed the drop off location with the driver, they'd arrive a little early but Ben didn't mind it, he preferred to be punctual rather than make some sort of dramatic entrance well after everyone's arrived. The uber driver pulled away from the house and drove to the evening's event.

Location: Kappa House || Danny's Bedroom
Outfit: Black and Grey Suit
Hex Code: #804080

Traffic is a bitch.

This was all Danny had time to think about as he stormed from his car, into the almost empty Kappa house, up the stairs, and to his bedroom. He should have left home early that morning, but his mom wanted him to come to church with the family. Danny could never so no to his mother. He didn't leave Orlando until the afternoon. This would normally be okay, but the traffic had other plans. So here he was, running extremely late for the first major social event of the Greek year. He threw open his closet and pulled out the first suit he saw. It was one of his favorites though, paring a black jacket / pants combination with a grey shirt, black tie, and black collar. He must admit to himself as he peeked in the mirror, he looked "fresh as hell", as he would probably tell Ben later on that night. Danny smiled at himself and peered back into his closet for shoes and a belt. He selected his pointed grey Tom Ford dress shoes with laces and its matching belt. Funny enough, his suit was also Tom Ford. Danny didn't just like to match color and concept wise, but he was typically found wearing outfits that were all the same brand.

He paced his way into the bathroom, wondering why the house was so quiet. He hadn't really talked to anyone all weekend, opting to focus on his family. Nick was probably with Amaris, but where were Ben and Hayden. Danny reached into a drawer and pulled out his favorite cologne: Bleu de Chanel. He sprayed it on his, rubbed it into his hands, and rubbed his hands along the outside of his sleeves. This was his typical cologne routine, just as his father had taught him before his first date. After brushing his teeth, Danny pulled out his phone and shot out a couple of texts.

TO: Nick Reyes
I assume you're with Amaris... tell her she better save me a dance tonight. :)

TO: Hayden
Where you at bro? Just got back, headed to the party in a second! See ya there? You better show!


Danny slipped his phone in his front right pocket and went back to his room to grab his wallet. Just as he grabbed the Versace wallet his father had given him for his 18th birthday, he heard Benjamin's announcement from the lobby, "If you're riding with me, you've got two minutes to get your ass downstairs and into the uber!" Danny hustled out of his room, only stopping to grab a wine cooler from his mini fridge on the way out. He descended the stairs just as Benjamin was shutting the door. He followed him and slid into the car just before it took off. He looked at Ben jokingly, "Way to rush me out the door bro. I hope I didn't forget anything." he laughed as he turned his attention to the people they passed outside of the window. Now that he thought about it, he really hoped he had his Student ID. He pulled his wallet from his back left pocket and smiled with relief when he saw the card in the top slot. Daniel took the down time to send a few more texts between sips of his cherry wine cooler.

TO: Daisy ;)
Headed to the party. You wearing that dress I like? ;)

TO: Eliza ღ
What time will you get to the party? Can't wait to see you! Missed you this weekend!


Danny's standing with both girls was confusing. Him and Eliza (or El as he called her) had been on a few dates, but things had faded over the summer. He had no idea where her head was. Daisy, on the other hand, had always intrigued Danny. He didn't know if there was a serious emotional connection, but he would smash in a second if given the chance. He didn't want to mess up their playful friendship though. While lost in his own thoughts he noticed Ben glancing nervously at his phone over and over again.

"You good bro? Is it YaYa? Danny made sure to place a note of concern in his voice. He didn't like seeing his friend down. You gotta quit being down over that. It's either gonna work or it won't. Whatever happens will be for the best though. I can tell you that. Don't be nervous! I'm pretty sure she's thinking the same you are." Danny smiled at his friend. He really looked up to Ben, so it was weird to be trying to give him advice. But Danny knew the situation between Ben and YaYa and wanted to see it resolved for Ben's sake.

Hayden sighed. Yes he loved and enjoyed parties, he loved drinking. But that was normally in a simple manner, nothing elegant. Plus....the Burr hated suits. He hated wearing them when he was a child, a teenager, and especially now. But he would reluctantly put the suit on his body. "Atleast I look decent in this piece of....." he would speak,as he moved to find his phone. He heard a beep from it earlier, but couldn't find the time to check it. He had heard his big brother yell out for the uber, and he decided to call his own. He didn't feel like sharing a car with everyone else. He took his phone and would unlock it, staring at the picture of him, Daisy, and Daniel. They were his rocks.

To: ❀ Danny Boy ❀ (Daniel)
Sure thing babe <3

He would laugh aloud as he typed the text. His best friend, also happened to be one of the guys he had liked. Was it awkward? No, they were still bros. Hayden was happy that his friend didn't let it move into their relationship.

To: Alexander Hamilton (Daisy)
Attachment: PICTURE
I'm going to see you there right? Bc I don't think I can do this type of shit without you and Danny. Also, I look good right?

He would speak, before his phone went off. He would roll his eyes, and would exit his bedroom. He made his way downstairs, and hooped in dark black car. With a stranger, to head to the party. Hayden couldn't wait.

As soon as Danny and Ben arrived at the party, Ben was off. Danny rolled his eyes. Of course his friend was gonna run right to YaYa. Not that Danny objected. He wanted Ben to be happy, and YaYa made him happy... until she started talking to other guys. Then Ben would get pissed off, come to him upset, and the cycle would begin again. After taking a seat at the bar, Danny watched Ben wander for a second before spotting Ayala. It was almost funny to watch. Ben seemed to shoot out of a cannon towards the girl. Danny turned his focus elsewhere when he felt his phone buzz in his pocket. He spun the bar chair around and leaned his back against the bar.

When he read the text from Hayden, he chuckled out loud. That boy was like his brother. They were close enough that Danny could laugh off Hayden's freshman year crush. The other text from Daisy left a smile across his face. He couldn't lie. She was right. She looked good in anything to him. Danny wanted Daisy. There was no denying that. The problem was that she was tight with Eliza, and the feeling he felt at this moment when he realized he had no reply from her. That muddled things, but he couldn't let it stop him from having fun. Not until he was sure about Eliza at least. He shook off the inner dilemma and went to type out his replies.

TO: Hayden
lol just get here fast.... Ben ditched me for you know who.

TO: Daisy ;)
You're right ya know ;) I'm chilling at the bar. Come see me when you get here?


The party was filling up, but Danny's friends were absent so far. He swung back around to face the bar and waved the bartender over to order a drink. As he waited he pulled out his fake ID. He'd be 21 soon, and he could throw it away. He slipped the ID across the marble bar top. The bartender took a glance and slid it back to him. These bartenders weren't too concerned with underage drinking. Danny smirked to himself before looking up to order, "I'll take a glass of Johnny Walker Blue Label on the rocks. Please and thank you." Danny slid the bartender his card. When his order arrived, he leaned back and relaxed as he sipped his liquor.

Nick's reaction to her compliment made her laugh a little, but she mostly kept it to herself as to not embarrass him. She raised her eyebrows as he opened her door for him. It was the kind of gesture that a girl never expected, but was still lovely to get. She beamed at him as she climbed into the car. She smoothed down her skirt, before pulling her phone out of her bag and reading the few texts that had come in.

To: Hayden

Of course I'm going to be there! And you look fabulous, I think I may need to offer my services as a bodyguard so you won't be crushed by the crowds of people that will undoubtedly fall in love with you tonight.

To: Archie
You sweetheart <3 should hopefully be there before long!

To: Yuda

To: Danny
Of course. Get your favourite girl a drink, won't you? I'm stone cold sober so don't be afraid to go strong :P x


"So, Amaris, as our President, any last minute words of wisdom? Warnings about not bringing dishonour on Theta?" She asked, barely even looking up from her phone, but still grinning. From what she'd heard from some of her friends, other sororities and fraternities got lectures about how they were to behave and who they were to associate with. Like they weren't all grown adults capable of making their own decisions and choices. Sure, their fraternities and sororities were important, but there was a limit to it.

She grinned at Eliza as she arrived. "Aw, Eliza, you look stunning!" She gushed. She wasn't even exaggerating. Honestly, everyone in her sorority was so pretty. She'd really gotten lucky like that.

The Kappa smiled, as the car pulled up. He took out the money to pay the person, he just had a very interesting conversation about lizards, and how people should be more like them. It was amusing to say the least, because people normally were strange in these type of things, but not like that. He would wave, and see his phone vibrated, as he smirked.

Hayden would look towards the door, and open it. Immediately he was struck with the sight of Ben and Ayala. "Hmph, cute," the male thought with an honest opinion. They were good for each other, now if he could find his own Prince Charming, that would be great. He wouldn't respond to the texts as he spotted Daniel. He would tap on his shoulder and in a more feminine voice speak, "So, um you come here often?" An immediate laugh came from Hayden, as he would move near the bar. "I'd like a Bloody Mary, the more vodka the better," the male would show the bartender, his real I.D, and look towards Daniel. "So, any woman so far that caught your eye? Hayden asked, taking a sip of the Bloody Mary he just ordered. Awaiting an answer.

The ride to the party was short, but enjoyable, and as Daisy climbed out of the car, she yelled her thanks to Nick. He'd been such a gentleman the whole time. Maybe she should get to know him better. Saying her goodbyes to the girls, she made a beeline for the bar, knowing that Danny was waiting there for her. She knew that the tequila was going to get her pretty drunk pretty fast, but she also didn't care. She was probably the only entirely sober person there.

Danny's back was turned to her, and her painted lips curved into a grin as she approached. Her grin only broadened as she caught the end of his sentence. "She has just arrived," she declared, wrapping an arm around his shoulders. She grinned up at Hayden, straightening up. "Well, if it isn't my two favourite boys! I can tell Amaris not to worry, I can safely get drunk with two big, strong, trustworthy men to look after me," she teased. "Speaking of which, where's this tequila? I'm one of very few people sober here, and I've never liked feeling out of place," she added.

That said, turning up not only sober, but content and sober, to a party was a nice feeling. In high school, she'd had a habit of getting drunk before she even got to the party, and if she hadn't been able to get drunk before going to the party, she was often miserable until she was at least tipsy. She'd been drinking with people that were much older with her, hooking up with guys that were definitely too old for her, and just generally doing whatever was necessary to keep her mind off of things. But now, she was genuinely here to have a good time, and while she enjoyed being a little tipsy, she didn't feel any need to get blackout drunk.

Spotting the tequila, she took a step closer to the bar, picking up a shot glass and raising an eyebrow at Danny. "Ready?" She asked.

Danny and Ben made small talk while it was just the two of them. His glass dinged against Danny’s and the boys laughed at their joke toast. Ben wasn’t incredibly close with Danny, or the friends he listed off from his wait list, but he was close enough to delve into conversation with them whenever they were around. Of course, Ben respected the kids for the effort they put into these events and into the frat, but in all honesty, Ben couldn’t be bothered making deep connections with many people anymore. Not because he didn’t care about people, but more so because he reached his limit on how many people he can give attention to at once. He was a people person indeed, but a guy can only take having so many deep connections with people before it exhausted him. He blamed it on the stress that came with the break from Ayala.

Ben knocked the rest of his drink back into his mouth, expanding his cheeks to hold the liquid while he slowly drinks the stinging liquor. He lifted the empty glass in a gesture of gratitude to both the bartender and to Danny. Ben quickly pushed the rest of the liquids in his mouth down into his stomach, and he sharply exhaled. Hayden had snuck up behind Danny just seconds before, and as Ben was readying himself to walk off, he tapped both boys on the shoulder, β€œBoys, enjoy yourselves tonight. Just don’t embarrass anyone,” and with that, he was off. Pulling his phone out of his pocket, Ben sent a text to Abigail.

To: Abs
Girl, where are you??


Abigail looked at Juliette and shook her head. "It totally is harmless. We haven't done anything but talk and text." She muttered as Juliette said that she was going to keep quiet about it, Abigail gave her a firm nod of the head and chuckled when she said that she was going to look for Naomi a special someone. She remained silent for a little while as the vehicle finally came to a stop, she had pitched in her amount of money to pay the driver and got out of the vehicle first. Abigail straightened herself up and her clothing then turned to face Juliette and Naomi. "Remember, not a word." She muttered towards them as she turned heel towards them now. "I'll see you guys on the inside." She said as she started her small trek onto the inside, her phone chimed twice in her purse. It was Maddox and Ben. She shook her head at Maddox's text but couldn't help but smile at Ben's text. She started to type a reply towards them both but was stopped at the door. Abigail showed the proper items and was admitted inside.

To: Maddy
LOL. I just walked in, love. I'll search for you later. ;)

To: Ben β™₯
I am looking for you. Are you still by the bar?


She sent those texts and squinted her eyes as she looked for Ben and tried her best to avoid anybody else before then. It wasn't anything personal but she knew if she'd talk to anyone else before Ben, she'd engage in a long conversation with them and god knows how long they'll talk and who else would interject. Abigail checked her phone repeatedly as she really hoped that Ben would text her back sooner rather than later.

Abigail needed to talk to him about what had just went down but maybe he needed to talk to her, as well. She didn't really bother to think about it but knew that if something was going on, Ben would definitely tell her.

To: Abs
I’m headed towards the door, did you just walk in?


Ben texted Abby as he looked for her. As Ben walked, he did his best to keep his eyes peeled away from Ayala and Archie. The last thing he wanted to do was set himself off. He couldn’t help but peek back occasionally at the girl he claimed to be the love of his life. The sight of Archie so close to his girlfriend – or not girlfriend – made him hot with anger. Benji redirected his attention to looking for his friend, Abigail. He wasn’t sure if the girl thought they were more than friends or not, though. They had once been more than friends, but things changed. Though, now they’re all changing again. Ben and Ayala were on a break and he and Abigail rekindled a bit of that fire they used to have.

As Ben made his way through the little clumps of people, he spotted Abby. Abigail managed to move herself through the sea of people before her as her eyes were directed towards the bar. Her phone chimed in her purse once again as she just waved it off as it couldn't have been Ben since she was on the move towards him. He smiled and strolled up to her, one hand in his pocket, with confidence. β€œAb,” He put the one hand out that wasn’t in a pocket and offered it to Abby. Her ears twitched when someone said one of her many nicknames and it was Ben, standing there with one hand in his pocket and the other extended out towards her. Being her, Abigail didn't bother to give him a handshake but a hug instead as she gave him a light kiss on the cheek with a little chuckle. Ben pulled her in to give her a hug and light kiss on the cheek. β€œYou look beautiful.” Ben pulled away from her slightly and looked her up and down, smiling.

"Thanks. You look handsome." She complimented him back as she looked up at him. "So, what's up? I know I am late to the party. Did I miss anything new or exciting?" Abigail asked him as they stood there in the middle of the doorway. She pushed herself and Ben, of course it had no effect, out of the way so that they wouldn't be in the way of the stragglers. While she waited for Ben to respond to her, she whipped her phone out really quick to send out some messages and even read Ben's text, which didn't matter now.

To: Archie :D
Hey! I am here by the door. Talking to Ben.

To: Yuda :)
You here yet, girl? I want to see how stunning you look.


Ben shuffled his feet to the side as Abigail attempted to move the stoic man from the center of the doorway. Abigail had pulled her phone out to check her messages. As she did so, Ben responded to her. "Typical college shit. Ya and I may or may not be back together. I don't know," Ben shook his head and ran his hand over his hair. ”We're sort of doing this 'non-exclusive dating, getting to know each other all over again' thing. I don't really know what it means, but yeah." Ben put air quotes around his words and shrugged, he sported a humble smile to hide the pain he felt from it. "Neither new, nor exciting. How about that drink though?" Ben's humble smile stuck on his face as he extended his elbow for Abs to grab onto so they could walk to the bar together. "What about you Abs? Holding out for someone special tonight?" Ben knew there was a fire between them, but he knew not of her intentions. Perhaps tonight was the night to explore, Ben thought.

Abigail placed her phone back inside of her purse and gave Ben her full attention. She nodded her head at the words that came over his lips and even did a few expressions with her face. She didn't know how to take the whole him and Ya Ya might or might not be together sentence though she did like Ben but don't know if she would ever date him. Abigail shrugged her shoulders at the thought then looked at Ben as he held out his elbow. She took it, of course, and chuckled at his question as they waltzed over to the bar.

"You know me better than that, Ben." She commented as they made it over towards the bar. "I'll just have an Iced Tea, please." She said towards the bartender then looked back over at Ben. "But to answer your question, no. I am not giving up anything tonight or in the near future. You know should know that." She responded towards him as the bartender came back with her Iced Tea.

She thanked the bartender and handed him a ten dollar bill and told him to keep the change. "What about you, Benji?" Abigail asked as she took a sip from her tea then eyed him. "Are you holding out for anyone?" She continued as she slurped on her tea a little bit more.

Ben leaned on the bar as the bartender came over to ask for orders. "Another Maker's and ginger," He turned his body to lean against the bar facing Abigail; behind her head, was full view of Yaya. Ben peered over Abigail's shoulder momentarily. He noticed Yaya paying full attention to the men that surrounded her. His stomach felt like it was a bottomless pit.

"Well, you never know. Maybe you'll find someone that you like enough to have a little fun with," Ben smiled at Abi but thought of Yaya. Ben turned his attention back to Abigail and took a sip of the drink the bartender handed him and slipped the gentleman his card, telling him to keep the account open. "I've got someone in mind," Ben smiled slyly at Abigail and winked at her as he moved the drink back towards his mouth. "I guess, tonight will be a night of mystery in regards to who goes home with who." Ben teased.

Abigail nodded her head at Ben's comments then looked at him whenever he said that he had someone in mind. "I bet its Ya ya." She muttered as she played with the ice inside of cup with the straw then looked back towards him. The last comment of his threw her off a little as she shrugged her shoulders with a smile, her gaze went back towards him. "I guess but we shall see." She chuckled then left her cup on the counter as she sighed a little bit. "So, I have some more people that I need to see. But don't forget to save me a dance, stud." She said as she kissed his cheek again but waited for him to say something else before she would walk off.

Ben furrowed his eyebrows to the mumbling Abigail let spill just loud enough for Ben to hear. He didn't respond though because he knew she wasn't all wrong. Yaya was the girl Ben had in mind but Abigail wasn't necessarily off his mind either. He had a crush on her long before Yaya was in the picture, she was just always the one to shoot him down so eventually, he had to move on. Ben downed his drink in a gulp and ordered another one - tonight was going to be a long one.

As Abigail moved in to kiss Ben on the cheek, he grabbed her around the waist, pulling her into him. Ben left a kiss on the edge of her neck and jawline. He released her and stepped back a bit to give her space. "And see, we shall. I'll come find you for that dance." Ben's smile was playful and flirtatious now, almost seductive. Ben winked at the girl and walked off, letting Abigail take in the moment and giving her the opportunity to see her other friends. Ben made his way towards the far end of the pool, where he sat with his drink in hand away from the ever-growing noisy crowd.

Ben's last actions stunned Abigail right where she stood. She was completely frozen as she watched him walk away after a wink. She didn't know what to say or how to respond as she stood there with her mouth opened slightly. After the display that he just showed, she wasn't sure if she wanted to dance with him now or not but she was taken away from her thoughts by the ping of her cell phone within her purse. It was Ya ya. Just what she needed.

To: Ya Ya :)
We're here, girl. I'm close to the bar. Where are you?


She sent the text then started to type a text towards Archie.

To: Archie :D
By the bar. Just FYI.


She then sent that text and just stood over by the bar, waiting to see who was going to approach her first as Ben's actions still plagued her mind a little.

Hayden would laugh. His friends were the perfect measure of insanity he needed. He checked his phoned and cleared it of the messages, probably the thousands his family sent him on the daily. He wasn't going to answer them. He would down the rest of his Bloody Mary, and smile. He would order another one, and wait for the next one looking at his friends. He knew Daniel was talking about the girl who just walked up.

""Well, if it isn't my two favourite boys! I can tell Amaris not to worry, I can safely get drunk with two big, strong, trustworthy men to look after me," he heard the woman speak and he laughed. "I don't really know if I can fight all the guys in here Daisy. But You look absolutely stunning. As usual," he spoke with a laugh. Hayden would nod towards them and motion that he was going to go and leave.

He would walk aimlessly, listening to one of the songs playing. He would hum along as he walked, and carefully move around the bodies of people either passed out, or about to. He laughed, he somewhat remembered his freshman year. But that memory involved him, so he somewhat stopped thinking about it. But a lot of good came out of that year, he met Daniel and Daisy, which was the only reason he came. But that was going to just leave them to talk. They were cute. Hayden would mumble to himself about not being able to play Dungeons and Dragons, he just wanted to leave. As he thought he felt his body collide with someone else's and he was sent tumbling down. "HOLY SHIT! I am so so so sorry," he frantically apologized getting up. In his mind he noticed the guy was fairly attractive and he laughed. "Roll for charisma," the male bitterly thought.

A few minutes passed, and maybe it was because Charlotte had emptied her glass by that point, but she was finding to Weston to be more enjoyable than she expected from him. She had not been envisioning him as someone who would be bland to begin with, but he was a Beta, and Charlotte did all that she could to keep her relationships with the Betas on a surface level. It wasn't fair to judge them as a whole, since she herself would never want to be judged for simply being an Alpha, but it was what it was, and in this case, getting to know Wes was proving to be a pleasant surprise. Interestingly, Wes was feeling the same way about Charlotte, though his glass was still only a few sips in, so he couldn't blame him feeling more relaxed on the alcohol. While he had gotten to know Juliette pretty well over the past year, he hadn't had the pleasure of doing the same with Charlotte. He had heard briefly, and mostly through Juliette, that she wasn't as enthused with being an Alpha as most of the girls, but he barely thought anything of it. Speaking to her now, though, he could tell that she certainly was different than her sister and most of the other Alpha girls. It wasn't a bad different, but it was noticeable. If anything, though, he preferred discovering this about her, than if he had been forced into a situation with a girl who was high strung and demanding. Charlotte seemed like she had a sense of humor in her, and a real personality that she didn't use as a facade just to fit in, like he himself had been guilty of doing over the past year.

With his mind on that, and how uncertain he felt about his current predicament, he couldn't help but to also think about Nick. Though he and Charlotte were in a fairly secluded area, his eyes had drifted away from the girl on more than one occasion when someone passed by, with his hopes jumping at the thought that maybe it was Nick. It never was, but it was that bout of hope burning in his chest that was part of the reason for why he stood up after talking with Charlotte for a few minutes. He knew that while she seemed to be genuinely entertained by their conversation that had unfolded, she probably wasn't dying to continue to socialize with him, after all that had just been thrown on them, anyway. "I'm going to go grab something else at the bar. Whatever this is sucks," he said, lifting the glass that was supposed to contain some whiskey concoction in it, but tasted far too bitter for Wes to enjoy, before continuing with, "And I'll get a refill for you too. Daiquiri, yeah?"

"Yeah, thanks," Charlotte nodded, standing up herself, though. "I'm actually going to go find a few friends outside. If you stumble across Hudson or Audrey, the alibi is that you were stopping to get us drinks before meeting me outside, but you got caught up talking to some Beta legacy, or something," she winked, then giving a wave of her hand to signal her departure. Wes nodded, and as the two moved out of the lounge, they both immediately turned to their phones. Weston couldn't even remember what Nick had said, in addition to the photo, since he had immediately deleted the texts when Hudson knocked on his door, but he sent Nick a text regardless, saying, "I won't deny that you Kappas can clean up nicely. Wya?" Given that Hudson was here, Wes was unsure if he actually intended on meeting up or even socializing with Nick here, but he was curious as to the Kappa's whereabouts regardless. Charlotte, on the other hand, was feeling less nervous when she read her texts, and more relieved, though she opted on letting Michaela play the waiting game a little bit longer, by not responding. No one had told her that Jazz and Mickey were outside, but she just had a feeling that that was where the two of them would end up, so that was where she headed. Luckily, her intuition was correct, and she found Michaela standing at the outdoor bar. Walking up behind, Charlotte gave a playful squeeze to the girl's side to signal her presence. "Let me just start off by saying that I am oh so flattered by how obsessed you are with me, Miss Vaughn," she said teasingly. "I don't blame you for needing better company than Jazzy, but gosh, I didn't know I had neglected you this badly." When the bartender came over to them, Charlotte set her credit card and fake ID down on the counter. "You can open up a tab for us," she said to the man, before turning back to Michaela with a devilish grin. "Pick out something good for me to start my night off with. I'm only one Daiquiri in and I'm going to need a lot more than that once I share some wonderful news with you."

Weston did want a drink that he would actually consume, and he figured that it would look good if he at least ordered a drink for Charlotte too, in case he stumbled upon Hudson and Audrey and had to activate their story, so he headed away from the lounge and towards the bar. He didn't get too far though, before someone turned a corner and ended up banging right into him. The contents of Weston's drink went flying, but luckily only on to the floor, and not onto either of them, and Weston was relieved when he saw that it was Hayden who was scrambling up from the floor and not some sorority girl ready to stab him with her heel. "Shit, man. My fault, my fault," he said, shaking off Hayden's apology as he offered him a hand to help him get up. "I'm a little bit out of it tonight, as you can tell," he laughed, though he nodded to the puddle of alcohol on the floor and added, "But in my defense, that was supposed to be my first drink, so I'm not even wasted. How's your night going, though? All your boys here?" He and Hayden were friendly, so he would have engaged in small talk with him at some point during the night anyway, but there was no denying that Wes was eager to talk to him now, to hear if anything exciting was going on with the Kappas... particularly Nick.

As much as he understood how important it was for her specifically to network, epecially with her being a president of a Greek organization and all, Nick honestly felt like he should have met Amaris wait for him. At least, made her enter the place with him. That way, she could take up all the attention - she was radiant tonight, more-so than she normally was - and Nick could slither away to get them drinks while she worked crowds and various one-on-one conversations. Because right about now? He was convinced that he either looked a mess and Amaris had just been trying to be nice earlier, or someone else important had walked in beside him. Not that everyone got stares of some kind when they walked in and either ignored it or reveled in it. Because that didn't exist to him, which was why he ended up having a conversation with Amaris. It didn't exactly end on a note that he would have liked, sure, but it did prompt him to text a few of his Kappa brothers to see if everyone had made it and if they were about. After all, some people didn't feel like fulfilling her best friend responsibilities.

To: Hayden, Danny, Ben
Where is everyone? I'm headed out to the pool.

Nick followed one of the side doors he remembered from originally visiting the venue some time in the event's earlier conception days and was surprised immediately by the sight of an old friend, Jessie. Jessie had graduated last year and had gone off to do Teach For America for a year since participation could help offset the financial strain of graduate school. The two had grown comfortable with one another in the time they had both been Kappas. It probably helped that it was Jessie who had even introduced Nick to the rest of the Kappas and the idea of Greek life. The fact that they had slept together prior to that discussion was a topic Nick didn't like dwelling on too much. He had just been thankful that they had kept it between the two of them. And especially that Jessie hadn't become his Big. Nick wasn't sure how he would have handled that situation. "Jess! I didn't even know you were coming back," he exclaimed once they both pulled away from their hug. The older man grinned widely, chuckling to himself. "Figured I'd surprise you guys and all. Chicago's kinda cold this time of year and I missed my Florida people. How've you been?" Nick couldn't help but grin in response. "Good, great even. I was just about to go look for Ben or one of the sophomores." It seemed possible that Jessie's grin widened even further. "Let me go get us drinks and we can look for them together. We can catch up in the meantime." Nick nodded only too quickly, reaching into his pocket once more to pull out his phone once he heard the ringtone for another text message. "I'll wait here." Once he saw the other man off, Nick glanced down at his phone, not even able to stop himself from practically beaming upon seeing a response from Weston. He couldn't even tell if it was relief that things weren't...awkward or elation that he was being acknowledged that had him smiling so hard, but either way he couldn't help but feel some inkling of satisfaction that Wes even text him. The fact that there was a compliment and a seeming desire to see him was just a completely different story and a host of butterflies in his stomach. It was only a second later that the smile dropped and Nick searched around himself, for Hudson in particular or just a Beta who had known the situation, he couldn't say, before going back to the message to type out a response.

To: Wes
Pretty sure you're looking dashing somewhere. I'm outside, near the pool. Ran into a Kappa alum. Where are you?

Was it common knowledge that Mickey was the queen of denial? Because she was - even if she didn't want to admit it. After all, who else could deny so adamantly the fluttering in their belly the second a familiar voice and hands reached them? Only Michaela and she would deny the feeling to the ends of the earth if she had enough weed in her. No alcohol, alcohol made her say stupid and honest things. It wouldn't, however, bereave her of the elation that bubbled forth and formed a grin on her face at the sight of Charlotte Arnault coming up behind her. After all, they were friends - this was her best friend. And after basically being told that they couldn't hang out (even though Mickey made a point of continuing to do so just because what the fuck is authority?), she missed the brunette. Fiercely. A lot more than she wanted to admit. Then again, she could admit that before she would ever admit the way it felt like Charlotte's touch lingered on her side even when the girl had pulled away and was focused on both getting a drink and teasing Mickey.

"Ooooohhh, holding back spicy deets now, baby girl? Should've told me sooner, I would've packed some jammies, made it a sleepover," Michaela replied offhandedly and rolling her eyes in jest with the bartender upon Charlotte slapping down an ID and what looked to be her platinum credit card, but Mickey wasn't really focusing on the smaller details. Not when Charlotte was literally right there and so close. Her hands, as always, itched to touch, but Mickey's first instinct, even when she told herself that she should stop doing that because real friends did not flirt with their close friends, was to flirt. And so she turned to Charlotte a second later with a more salacious smirk and responded indifferently, casually, "I mean, we could still do that, if you want. I sleep better naked, anyway. Might even be a little more fun that way, don't you think?." She couldn't even stop herself from winking at the brunette before returning her attention to the bartender. "You guys do Zombies right? Well, I want two for me and my girl here. And send a rum and coke to the DJ."

In all honesty, Michaela knew that she should text Jazmyn, tell the girl to come find them so that Mickey could find some semblance of control and reign herself in. Because she was capable of it, contrary to popular belief. Except...she didn't do that. Didn't move to do that nor move to see why her phone vibrated - it was probably a response from Cyrus, all things considered - at all, not when Charlotte Arnault had the puzzling capability of widening Mickey's entire scope just so that she could encompass it all on her own. It was honestly selfish, really, especially when she looked this good. All dolled up and untouchable, at least for Michaela. Mickey bit her lip on a hum, forcing herself to keep her eyes trained solely on Charlotte's (and nope, they didn't dip down to the girl's lips at all, thank you very much). Which meant she had to keep talking, if only to get a response out of Charlotte, since the other girl could get a response out of Mickey with little to no words (so unfair, by the way). "But, since we're being all honest and sharing news, Miss Arnault, I must admit that you were correct about one thing," Mickey stated and ignored the voice in her head that said her voice should not be that low or silky. She wasn't trying to take Charlotte to bed, right? Of its own volition, her left hand switched her phone to her right so that it could reach Charlotte, thumb grazing where the girl's pearl earring was connected to her earlobe, reveling in the feel of the encrusted diamonds against the pad of her thumb along with the soft skin she shouldn't be touching pressed against it, while continuing, "I was feeling quite neglected. Horrifyingly, so. Lonely, even. In fact, the only way I can think of you possibly making it up to me is not leaving my side for the rest of the night. You know, just in case I get a little too needy and need my fix. Addiction is a hard thing to crack, after all."

Danny smiled at Daisy as she approached. She had heard his last statement and responded in a way that left Danny confident that he could get what he wanted later that night. He zoned out for a split second when he saw Eliza walk into the crowd. Quickly snapping out of it, he smiled at Daisy. She looked insanely good. He didn't even try to hide it when he looked her up and down. Picking up his own shot glass, he pulled her in so he could whisper in her ear, "Damn, you look hot." He let her pull away and look at him. Then, with an excited grin plastered on his face, Danny raised his glass towards the middle of the drinking triangle the two of them made up with Hayden. "Let's fucking do this!" Danny shouted before knocking back his first shot. The alcohol sent a shiver down his spine, but he shook it off playfully and locked his eyes back on Daisy.

Danny's reaction to seeing her made her grin widen even more. She let him pull her against him, keeping a hand on her shot glass and staying grinning. When he released her, she looked him him up and down. "You don't look so bad yourself," she remarked. His excited grin made her laugh a little as she raised her glass to meet his. She laughed properly at his declaration, before downing her own shot. It burned a little, but she'd gotten used to the burn of alcohol long ago. She didn't miss his eyes locking on her as she reached for the next shot, handing his to him. "So, what are your plans for tonight?" She asked playfully, before knocking back the tequila again.

There was something different in Daisy's eyes tonight. Danny smirked at her question and elected for a more sarcastic response. "I think me and Hayden are gonna uber our drunk asses home and get some sleep because we're good boys and have class tomorrow." Danny laughed at his own joke. Before turning back to Daisy, Danny killed his second shot. Out of the corner of his eye he saw Ben with Abigail. His mind whirred. Danny was proud Ben wasn't pining after Ya Ya, who was still at the bar surrounded by guys. He smiled and focused his attention back towards Daisy. He placed a finger on her arm and ran it along her skin gently. Looking up at her, he returned her question. "And what about you? How do you see your night going?"

She laughed at his response, rolling her eyes. The bar was quickly getting busy, and she was able to see a number of people she recognised. Everybody seemed to be having a good time, which was the important thing. Even if these kinds of events were intended for networking, they were more frequently used as an excuse to party. Not that Daisy was any different.

The feeling of Danny's touch on her arm sent shivers down her spine, but she ignored it, instead keeping her customary grin on. "Oh, me? I'm planning on switching to something non-alcoholic after these shots, going home at a reasonable hour, watching a few episodes of whatever crime drama they're marathoning, before going to sleep at a reasonable hour like the good little Theta girl I really am," she replied, well able to mimic his sarcasm. "Unless somebody else has a better suggestion, I suppose," She added, before swallowing her next shot.


Danny downed the last of his three shots. He made it appear that he was in deep thought about a suggestion for Daisy, but in fact he laready knew his response. "I don't know... I might have something in mind, but for now, may I have this dance?" Danny stood up and put his hand out for Daisy to follow him onto the dance floor. The dance floor was littered with college students, and the formality of the party had faded. The DJ had switched the vibe over to bass bumping rap songs now, which Danny preferred to dance to. It was pretty easy for him. The girl had to do most of the work. Danny happened to know Daisy could handle it though.


Daisy laughed at his request, shaking her head. She swallowed the rest of her shots, before following him onto the dancefloor. "I'm not entirely sure enough of the tequila has kicked in for this quite yet," she said, laughing at herself a little. "Also, did I mention I have two left feet? Or did you come out with the intention of having your foot impaled by a heel? Because that's a very real probability," she said, practically having to yell over the music. "You go first, show me exactly what to do," she added, taking a step or two back. She was teasing, and had an idea that Danny knew she was teasing, but she was planning on getting as much out of it as possible.

Danny took the tease in stride, but he had seen Daisy at other parties. She really knew how to work a guy over. He pulled her close to him and turned her around, talking over the noise in her ear. "Come on Daisy. You know what to do." His tone bordered on seductive. Placing his hands on the inside of Daisy's hips, Danny kept going, "You get really close to me, and you wiggle away." Danny swung her hips back and forth a few times playfully. He almost laughed at himself. He wanted to be subtle. It was much better than saying something like Daisy I want you to shake your ass on me. Danny wasn't a jerk.

Despite all of her teasing, Daisy didn't object as Danny pulled her over to him and pressed her against him. His voice in her ear sent shivers down her back, but she refused to allow herself to react. Instead, she just rolled her eyes and laughed a little, even as he put his hands on her hips. Him swinging her hips just made her laugh. She knew exactly what he wanted her to do, and part of her wanted to do exactly that. But she also wasn't going to make it that easy for him. For far too long, she'd been the girl that would do anything with any guy that talked sweet enough. A guy was going to have to work to get her.

"Danny!" She exclaimed, pulling away, but grinning. "I am not that type of girl," she added. "If you want it, you're going to have to come over here and show me exactly what you want," she teased. "I'm not going to do all the work for you."

Daisy was playing hard to get. Danny rolled his eyes at her. She was still teasing, but Danny's father had always told him that anything worth having took time and effort. When Danny remembered this he almost laughed out loud. He was sure this wasn't what his father had in mind, but advice is advice. Danny pulled out his best smirk and teased back at her. "Daisy, do you really want me to twerk on you? Because I will. I'm nearly drunk and have no shame." He angled his body towards her like he was gonna dance on her but pulled off at the last second. "Come on girl, you know what I want. Let loose. We're having fun tonight. Look around. You aren't gonna catch any judgment here!" Danny was being nice and genuine. He figured that was what she wanted.

Daisy laughed at him offering to twerk on her, shaking her head a little. She was definitely starting to feel the effects of the alcohol now. It was definitely a good thing she had decided to stay sober before coming, because otherwise she would have been very drunk by that point. Finally giving in, she pressed herself against him, starting to roll her hips, just like he'd wanted.

Danny relaxed himself and fell into rhythm with her as they danced for quite a few songs. The party around him was starting to get wild. The students were finally drunk enough to go all out. Daisy had certainly let loose, and Danny was enjoying it for sure. She was as good at this as Danny expected, but he understood this was a social event, and they had basically only talked to each other. He let another song wind down and leaned down to whisper in her ear, turning her around to face him. "As fun as this is, we need to go socialize, he sighed as he spoke. He really just wanted to stay here all night. "When the party's winding down, I'll come find you. We've gotta get one slow dance in." Danny smiled at her and held her arm for as long as he could before turning to leave for the bar.

The more time passed, the more she felt the alcohol kicking in. She eventually relaxed properly, enjoying herself and the dance. But eventually, it had to come to an end. As he turned her around, she had to resist the temptation to pout. She beamed at his suggestion though, nodding and turning around to look for someone else she knew. She spotted Hayden crashing to the floor, and hurried over to him, reaching down to help him to his feet. She noticed the rather attractive guy standing nearby, and grinned. "Already been swept off your feet, I see?" she muttered to him, raising an eyebrow.

Hayden would slightly laugh, as he noticed it was Wes. He just said Wes was attractive, but that wasn't totally wrong. He found Weston a slightly bit more attractive than he did most people, but the guy was straight as hell. There was no point in trying. He would look towards the spilled alcohol. He casually glanced at Daisy, and would speak."Daisy, I accidentally bumped into him. Go dance with Danny, bet he'd enjoy it. And, sorry Weston, if you want another one. I can buy you a drink?," the male would laugh a bit, hoping Daisy got his message. He would reach for his phone upon feeling it vibrate.

FROM:St. Nick (Nick)
Where is everyone? I'm headed out to the pool.

He blinked and sort of looked towards Wes. "My night, has been like yours. Not filled with alcohol, trying to get drunk, possibly meet someone. Danny, Ben, and Nick are all here. Nick's at the pool, and I think Danny and Ben are somewhere around here. What about you? You want, you can come out there with me," Hayden spoke with a laugh. They were pretty chill with each other. He didn't let the other male know about his secrets. They weren't close, but they could be if Hayden tried.

TO:St. Nick
Sounds like fun, omw.

Hayden would move away from Weston, and motion for the male to follow him, as he started to walk to the outside area where they pool was.

Danny walked by Eliza talking to some guy he didn't know. He got a weird feeling in the pit of his stomach, but he shook it off as the alcohol doing it's work. Eliza was the last thing he wanted to think about tonight, simply because he knew it would make him rethink his intentions to end the night with Daisy. He walked to the bar and was ordering up another drink when he felt his phone buzz in his pocket. It was the group text with him, Nick, Hayden, and Ben. Noting Nick's location, he proceeded to the poolside.

He arrived to find Nick standing by himself looking down at his phone. Danny hollered a quick "Nick! What's up?" to gain his attention before leaning in to dap him up. "You look lonely out here... Waiting for someone?" Danny asked as he looked around for any sign of Amaris, Hayden, or Ben.

Nick knew he probably looked a little too eager; he felt too eager. And could anyone really blame him? He hadn't been sure where he and Wes had been standing, not at all, and all things considered - Nick was prepared to be told that whatever they had was done and over with. So, in his head, he thought it was reasonable that was a touch eager - excited - at the prospect of them at least still being on talking terms. Which was why he practically jumped out of his skin when Danny yelled his name, eyes shifting upward frantically for a quick second followed by a "Shit, Danny!" once he realized who had called him. And then came the paranoia. Texting the same Beta he was pretty sure he was going to get his ass kicked over if Hudson - or really any of the Betas who knew what happened - knew that he was texting Weston. Lips slowly quirking into an uneasy smile, Nick hurried up and slid his phone into his back pocket, opting to just wait to feel a vibration in lieu of a response. Not that there was any real reason to keep Weston or anything that Nick did a secret from Danny, but...just because. What could he say? He was a touch paranoid about the situation. The only person who even knew he had slept with Wes was Amaris and she didn't even know the latest details.

Nick easily returned the dap Danny gave him, trying to relax his frame so that the smile felt more natural as he replied, "A-actually, j-ust, uh, waiting for a Kappa alum. He, uh, graduated last year, you remember Jessie right? Getting drinks right now." Nick cursed the fact that he actually felt...caught, even if Danny wouldn't have known what he had to feel caught about. And he felt lame for including that "We were just going to go find Ben" since that really didn't help things at all. This was why he didn't people much; he wasn't the one who did them well. Science, sure, this? Nope, not at all on his resume as a skill he had perfected in any capacity. It surprised Nick when he managed to even flirt correctly. Luckily though, his phone buzzed again which meant a distraction, even if it wasn't Hayden. He couldn't tell if it was relief or disappointment that came with his expelling the breath he hadn't even known he was holding. "Hayden's...uh, coming. I hadn't really wanted much, just wanted to see where everyone was. Just got here with Mare, actually." He stated the last part with much more certainty, a calm, as he text Hayden back, not even knowing that Hayden was coming with a guest.

To: Hayden
Cool. W/ Dan.

Cyrus sits out by the pool bar, attracted by a recently-graduated Sigma alum, Kirk Richmond. The grad had taken a liking to Cyrus, mainly because he always had low prices on Adderall, but also because their general personalities clashed well. Kirk landed a clerk position for one of the Florida state judges, a prestigious position that would probably land him a judge position later on in life. Cyrus walks up to him, setting both the drinks down on a nearby table and greeting the alum with great happiness. "Man, first Guys in Ties as a Sigma Chi Delta alumni. How's it feel, old man?" Kirk turns, and with a big smile, embraces Cyrus. Kirk orders a drink for the two of them, and considering the state that Cyrus is already in, he sips his with little intention on finishing it.

"Man, Cy, I missed ya' buddy! That real world out there is cruel. Missin' Sigma parties everyday. How was your summer?" His words filter through Cyrus' ears, and he swears he's listening, but he catches a glance at a certain Kappa walking out onto the pool area and he's stuck for a moment. Hayden looks good tonight, fuckable tonight, but they haven't hooked up in a long time and bring that up now, with the whole Maddox situation, seems like unnecessary drama. Still, he can help but look at the boy and bite his lip, keeping eye contact for longer than needed. "Yo Cyrus, are you paying attention?" Kirk groans, snapping his fingers in Cyrus' face. Cyrus indignantly replies that yes, he was listening, and repeated Kirk's recent blurb of conversation. Now who said Cyrus couldn't multitask? When it comes to cute boys- and girls -Cyrus can be a master of anything. Cyrus returns to Kirk's original question, pondering it slightly. Summer was spent hooking up with plenty of people- including a couple visits from a certain Beta, but those usually happened down in Florida; Cyrus spent most of the summer holiday in New York. "Summer was summer. Missed the Miami heat- God, nothing beats Florida. I've come to tolerate New York, but I just feel better in Florida, you know?"

A small group of Sigma alum starts forming when Kirk notices some guys that graduated before Cyrus; some only a few years, but some long before Cyrus even thought about college. There is a commotion inside as more active Sigma brothers enter, including Jack Decker, Sigma Chi Delta president. Cyrus excuses himself from the group of alumni and heads back inside, making sure to purposefully brush by Hayden on his way inside. It must be the liquor because Cyrus usually doesn't bother with more than a hello towards the Kappa brother. He even casts a smirk towards Weston Cullen, who has made company with Hayden.

"Sorry to interrupt, I thought Miss Hamilton could use a pretty face around her." Cyrus teases his fellow brothers, unaware of whatever they had just been talking about.

Across the room, Andre finally makes his break from the James Sr when Hudson finally makes his entrance. Once Hudson is surrounded by Beta alum, after just breaking from a group of Alpha and Beta alum, Andre seamless joins the group beside Hudson. The Beta alumni are conversing lightly, and Andre starts a side conversation with Hudson. "Talking to my president was the only excuse Reid James would accept to let me leave the conversation. I swear that whole family is fucked up, but at least he had some sense to go Beta. The brother are behaving themselves, as apposed to other fraternities. So, the real question is, which Alpha alumni is going home with you tonight?"

______________________________________
If Weston hadn't received Nick's text, signaling that he, too, was out by the pool, he definitely would have taken Hayden up on the offer and headed out there with him. He didn't know why he had even asked Nick about where he was, if the second that the guy answered back, his initial reaction was to read the text and then quickly delete the conversation in its entirety, again. It was a pretty clear representation on how conflicted he was feeling, if nothing else. On one hand, he just couldn't get Nick out of his head. On the other, though, he knew that Hudson was serious, and Wes didn't know if Nick was worth losing his Beta brotherhood over. If Hudson kicked him out, he would likely out him sexually to the rest of the fraternity too. Weston wasn't aware that some of his brothers weren't straight either, so he had no reason to believe anything other than that he would lose all of his friends, and become a social outcast. His father would be upset and confused over what happened, and Weston could already see himself falling into a deep depression over the entire ordeal. At the same time, Fulton was supposed to be an opportunity for him to feel free and comfortable with who he was. He didn't need everyone who walked by him on the street to know what his sexual preference was, and honestly, he would have been content with continuing to have a secret relationship with Nick, that no one knew about, but even that didn't seem possible now.

It was all so conflicting, and then to add into the mix that he had now to add keeping up a fake relationship with a girl he barely knew into the mix, and Weston was almost relieved when he received Charlotte's text message. It annoyed him in a sense, because for all she knew, he was actually having fun and now he was supposed to leave the event to cover for her, but he didn't want to think in that petty way right now, because he did want to leave. It worked out, luckily, for the both of them. He hadn't noticed Daisy's initial arrival, upon being focused on his phone and the text from Nick and Charlotte, but he smiled at her when he did notice her. "My girlfriend actually already wants to call it a night, so I think I'm gonna head back home with her," he explained, trying to make "my girlfriend" sound as natural as possible. "Go treat yourself to a drink, man," he said, his eyes flashing back towards the puddle on the ground, before he started in the opposite direction from the two. "But it was nice seeing you guys. You look great, Daisy."

The male would wave to Weston, as a way of saying goodbye. Then eventually walked towards the area he knew Danny would be. He would run a hand through his hair, as he heard an unfamiliar voice speak to his best friend.

"Besides all you Kappa guys are just as forgettable as each other, so does it really matter?"

What the hell did Hayden walk into? Um he was pretty sure the slightly attractive person standing before him was coming for his house? He turned to see who it was, and he swore he knew the dude's name. But he didn't have it registered in his mind. Archivald? Aaron? Hayden would slightly frown as he would push past a few people and look towards Danny and Ben. He now knew what was happening as he registered the rest of what the male said. Along the lines, if he had more alcohol, Hayden would probably have been swinging right now. But given it was a civil event, and he was to behave. He wasn't as nearly as smashed,as he still sipped on what was left of the Bloody Mary that spilled, when he had bumped into Weston.

"Now be a gentleman and back off. I know that's gonna be tricky for you, but c'mon don't scare the girls. Or piss them off, I'm pretty sure every one of them could fight better than you, bud," hearing that. He knew what was happening. He was pretty sure that the two were going to fight. Hayden knew Danny could fight his own battles, but. If he couldn't, Hayden would silently whoop this imbecile's ass. Especially for insulting his house.

Ben was doing his best to calm Danny down, whispering in his ear ”Relax Dan, it’s okay. He’s just being a fucking prick.” Danny breathed in deeply. Ben was right, but the ignorant bastard wouldn't shut the fuck up. "I called you Benny 2.0 because I don't know, or care to know, your name. Besides all you Kappa guys are just as forgettable as each other, so does it really matter?" Danny looked at Ben. The comment reminded him that a fight would dishonor his house, but Danny wasn't about to keep taking shit from Archie. Maybe when he was sober, but he was to drunk for this bullshit. Archie kept pushing, "Now be a gentleman and back off. I know that's gonna be tricky for you, but c'mon don't scare the girls. Or piss them off, I'm pretty sure every one of them could fight better than you, bud." Next, Archie made a massive mistake. He winked at Daisy. Danny glanced over his shoulder to confirm, and sure enough, she was in the line the wink was sent. The hair on Danny's neck stood up. Daisy was his, at least for the night.

Danny was about to snap. He could feel the anger pricking at the surface. Keeping his eyes locked on Archie, he directed a comment at Ben in a whisper, "You go high. I go low. He can't take us both." Danny wanted to go now, but he wasn't going to pounce until Ben was down himself. Danny saw Hayden enter the group. That was good, extra backup if he needed it. "Ok seriously, you should back off now," Archie was directing the comments at Ben now. Ben turned to face the incessant idiot who kept talking. "We all know you're too pussy to do anything," Archie let out an arrogant chuckle, "Isn't that right, Benny?"

Danny saw Ben tense up, ready to spring. A chuckle protruded from Ben, and, in the blink of an eye, Danny watched instinct take over. As soon as Ben started to swing, Danny took off. He nailed Archie right around the waist, hearkening back to his middle school linebacker days. He had him pinned on the ground. After Ben's comment, Danny added a scream of his own, "You fucked with the wrong one tonight." He heard a cold fist land on Ben's temple. Ban could fight his own battles, and Hayden was there too. He had no intention of letting Archie up, but he had to admit the guy was strong.

Part of knowing Archie as well as Maddox did meant knowing what the boy was thinking almost before he thought it himself. The same could be said the other way around, which is why when their eyes met, Maddox immediately recognized that look. The same look that always came just before the Beta said something that could get him into a problem big enough where Maddox would have to step in and help. Surely enough, that’s exactly where this was going. "Besides all you Kappa guys are just as forgettable as each other, so does it really matter?" . Everything that followed that sentence was a blow to the Kappas’ ego, because regardless of what they all might say, their egos were just as inflated as the Betas’. If not more so. Maddox sighed in annoyance, already preparing himself for when he’d have to drag Archie’s ass out of there. He loved his little to pieces but the boy had a knack for creating scandals and Maddox was usually stuck dealing with the aftermath. Though the Beta didn’t necessarily disagree with what his little was saying, there was a time and place for everything. This was not the time, and it most certainly was not the place. Maddox could feel the phone in his jacket pocket vibrating urgently, and though taking his eyes off of the younger Beta could mean big trouble, he opted to check whatever was incoming. He was only allowed enough time to pull out his phone and unlock it before he heard what sounded exactly like flesh against flesh and looked up just in time to see Archie being tackled to the ground by the man he also didn’t care to know the name of. First instinct was to make sure none of the girls were close enough to get hit. It was unnecessary, just like everything else that was happening. Still, it was happening and once a punch is thrown, there’s no turning back. β€œFuckin’ call me a pussy now, you bitch!” Real Classy Maddox thought, his annoyance now transforming into irritation and a little bit of anger.

Maddox had always prefered to fight with stabbing words instead of fists. Physically damage always healed, but emotional damage could last a lifetime. But given the fact that his little was being ganged up on by two (possibly three) blood-thirsty Kappas, it was more then clear that he’d have to step in. Before Benjamin could do anything else, the Beta quickly pulled him back with a harsh yank wrapping both arms around his neck and head to keep him in place, something he had learned as a young teen but never truly had any use for. Until now. He sharply pulled his head backwards and moved in close enough to almost whisper in the man’s ear. ”I suggest you think loooong and hard about your next move Benny, or you may regret it” his words came out as a low growl, not caring if the people around them heard. Part of the reason he always avoided violence was that it brought out a side of him and he didn't like, a side that no one would like, and Maddix could feel it boiling inside him ready to explode. The headlock he held Ben in made it so incredibly easy to break the man’s neck in one fell swoop, but once again, not the time nor the place. His job now was to get Archie the hell out of there before he made things so much worse, not break bones or injure Kappas. No matter how much he wanted to and damn did he really want to at the moment. He continued to hold Ben in place, hoping that the other Kappas would have enough common sense to get their shit together and stop making a scene, or that someone else would come and do it for then. The last thing Maddox wanted was to have to throw a punch, because if he did he might just end up killing someone.

"Trust me, nothing's really changed in the house, I swear," Nick exclaimed in between fits of laughter and Jessie chuckled by the shared memory. Despite probably being able to say that he was allowed to feel just slightly miffed that all of his Kappa brothers dissed him only seconds after one another, Jessie's return with drinks and the fact that he still felt awkward about texting Wes - particularly since he still hadn't heard a word from him since earlier - enabled him to put aside all thought of either situations. The Kappa house hadn't. Hanged much but the absence of the brothers he had looked up to was definitely noticeable. People assumed all of the Kappas were meek, boring and just into their studying, but there was nothing boring about Jessie leading a group of them last year into a ridiculous display of foolishness by sliding down the step on mattresses. Or that time that they had pranked all of the sophomores by taking all of their clothes and hiding them. It was a touch cruel and sure, Nick had caved and allowed a few to borrow his own. But the point was that there were good memories. And reminiscing instead of costing on his own issues was definitely a lot more fun. That also could have been the rum and coke talking.

"You still talk to Amaris? You guys were real close last I checked." It was small talk and Nick probably, if it were up to Amaris, should have started at least moving around the venue. Then again, he wasn't aware that his brothers were currently engaging in unnecessary drama since it would have incited his protectiveness and need to placate, but Nick swallowed back the last of his drink without hesitation. The comfortable area within the pool area's lounge was a safe space he wasn't in the mood to leave. So he nodded jovially while replying in the positive, "Yeah, she's somewhere here, probably judging people at the bar." Jessie laughed outright, thigh pressing gently against Nick's as he leaned back, and Nick acutely felt that shift in body language. It made him smile, awkwardly, and when the other guy excused himself to take a phone call, Nick pulled his phone out, hesitated for only a moment and then decided to text Weston one more time.

To: Wes
Are we ok? I thought I would've heard from you by now or seen you...and I haven't. Idk what to think rite now

The amount of people taking in the situation ebbed and flowed with understandable tension yet disassociation, allowing Amaris to continue watching from her perch at the bar with Blake. Naturally, alumni didn't always aspire to involve themselves in nor entertain the rambunctiousness and immaturity prevalent in college students. Most were full-fledged adults, if not already on the cusp of obtaining the title, lending to the either uninterested or annoyed demeanors Amaris hated noted. She didn't blame them either. Kappas weren't typically involved in as many physical altercations as Betas and esoecially Sigmas had, despite her disdain for having to acknowledge the legitimacy of certain stereotypes. And considering how much love Amaris had for her Kappa brothers and the time a he had had spent with them since her induction into Theta Chi, it should come to no surprise that things like these - unnecessary fights - just weren't things her boys got involved in. So, she didn't have to pay attention nor even involve herself in the proceedings or even aftercare. Not unless she knew one of the people involved Anschluss wanted to make sure they were okay by both smacking them upside their heads while making sure they weren't seriously her yet, even though most paid attention to and complained about the former. However, at least two of her boys - her friends - had acted violently first and Amaris cursed on another sip of her drink when she had seen Ben throw that punch. She definitely felt like not attempting to disassociate when she saw Hudson appear. His presence made her since, particularly once she saw the murderous fire in his eyes. "Damn it, I need to go over there." she stated and grabbed her phone, glancing back at Blake. "Watch my purse for me, babe? I'll be right back."

By the time Amaris had made her way over to the small group, both Daisy and Yuda had been long gone and while her phone vibrated in lieu of a text, hopefully from one of her Theta babies since they always held precedence over any others, Amaris chose not to glance st the device nor acknowledge it so insustence that she do so. Mostly, her attention was focused on the current scene she and the boy surely contained further in Hudson's eyes. Absolutely the two security personnel that had approached upon his requesting that Ben andre Danny be escorted off the premises. "No need to touch them," she insisted, stepping in between Ben and the security guard who was reaching out to grab her in. It was probably in everyone's best interest that Ben wasn't touched, particularly with force by someone he didn't know now but or twice rust. And they aren't off to buy each other friendship bracelets to exclaim to the work that they were besties, but there was no denying that ATL they were good friends. And disappointed Amaris may have been considering she had not heard the conversation leading up to the violence, as noted in the sharply pleading state she met Ben's gazes whrg, she also wasn't going to let him get manhabdled. She did place a gentle yet firm hand on Danny's arm. "They'll go willingly. I'll walk them out myself." The last part wasn't spoken, nor just to the security, but with a direct stare at Hudson. She had a strong feeling that he's really at her right up but bith bits and the entire Kappa Alpha reputation to shreds, and she really didn't feel like an argument. Ben and Danny didn't need to get forced out, the entire situation just got dramatic fast, and she was hoping that she and Hudson were on the same page in chanting the situation to be done with so that no one talked about it.

Finally, her attention was focused solely on Danny and Ben, and Amaris squeezed the forner's shoulder lightly. "Guessing you won't be able to get that dance after all, huh?" She whispered to Danny, mostly to get the the pinched expression off his face with a light jest. "You okay?" Was the follow-up since, regardless of wanting to chastise them both, their well-being took precedence. Her gaze rose back to Ben's a smile she asked, "You good, Ben? Let's head out so I can see you biys hine."

Did Ben and Daniel just get kicked out? Of an ALUMNI event? Holy hell. Hayden was confused. Didn't the other guy start it.

"Um what the hell," the Kappa spoke. He moved towards the two who got into a fight with his Kappa brothers and silently looked at them. "Sorry if I'm intruding, but, may I ask what the hell started that fight? I don't think my friends would honestly attack without reason, the male asked. He looked towards Maddox and Archie. He realized he only knew one of them, and that was barely. He did know about Ben and Daniel's temper. But they were at an event where it should've been kept under control. He decided to send a text towards the Kappa guys and was a bit upset.

TO: Big Ben, St. Nick, & ❀ Danny ❀
WHAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED!? I want an explanation via text, right now. I'm not very sure this will end good. I want to talk to both Nick and Ben when I get home.

Hayden stood there looking at the two males. They looked pretty cute with their injuries. Too bad, they got into a fight with his Big Brother and best friend.

[To Cy: Leaving- you coming with or catching an uber?]

Maddox sends the text after parting ways with Archie, but not before giving his little one last warning to stay out of trouble. The night is still so young. Maddox estimates he's been at the event for about two hours, two and a half at best, but it feels like much much longer. Given the fact that he didn't exactly want to attend in the first place, and with the addition of everything that has happened tonight, he's more than ready to take his leave. He cautiously heads back inside, avoiding any chance of colliding with Hudson. The lecture can be saved for later. He's more than certain that his president won't forget. Under normal circumstances, he would say his goodbyes to everyone personally, but meeting with them meant possibly running into the pissed-off Beta president. Scripted goodbyes were much safer.

[To Abby: Are you okay? Sorry that dance didn't work out for us... I'm heading out early so be careful going home]

[To Omi: You okay?]

Once sent, the he decides to find Cyrus. His blondie hasn't answered yet, but Mad can guess where he is and right now he doesn't have the patience necessary to wait for a replying text. "Sorry if I'm intruding, but, may I ask what the hell started that fight? I don't think my friends would honestly attack without reason" Maddox looks over at the newcomer, just barely recognizing his face, but not exactly sure from where. Also a Kappa if he's remembering correctly, the Beta lets out a slight chuckle, placing a hand softly on the other's shoulder and leaning down slightly to match his eye level. "sounds like you need to get to know your friends a little better" he says low enough only for him to hear before straightening up again. "Hayden. right?" he says, the name suddenly coming to him. "Don't worry too much about it". He leaves the boy with a smile before walking past him into the large crowd, hoping to quickly find the man he's looking for.

Said Sigma had been watching the fight with keen interest, but not enough interest to intervene. It was certainly a surprise to see Maddox join in, not because Cyrus didn't think he would defend his little, but the detached, dangerous side of Maddox Cyrus has never seen before. It a twisted way, it turned him on; that feeling quickly deflated when Hudson stepped into the circle and ended the fight just as it started to get good. Cyrus turns to Blake, setting his empty drink down at the bar. "Well, fun's over. I guess I should head out before Daddy James tries to pester me any further. And I have a handsome guest waiting to inhabit my bed. Good night, my honorable big brother, and if I don't see someone in your bed tomorrow, I may have to bang you myself." Cyrus' suggestive words are all playful, and only in the vicinity of him and Blake. Heaven forbid, if someone heard him talking like that...

As Cyrus makes his way towards the entrance, and away from the commotion, his phone buzzes in his pocket. "My mistress calls." He chuckles to himself as he sees "MADDY" light up his screen. The Beta asks if Cyrus is going to leave with him or catch an Uber, and when Cyrus goes to reply, he feels a familiar presence near him. Looking up, he notices the very person he was about to text right in front of him.

”I’m too sober and annoyed to stay here much longer” the Beta mutters with a sigh, glad that Cyrus is alone. He’s also too sober and annoyed to have to make up some story as to why they’re leaving together. Most know that the Sigma and Beta are β€œfriends”, for lack of a better word, but given the circumstances and what usually ends up happening on the nights of these events, them leaving together would definitely raise suspicion and that’s the last thing he needs right now. Still, they need to think of a cover story, in case anyone sees and/or asks. ”I’m parked towards the back” he adds as he pulls out his keys, assuming the blonde is accepting his offer to get a ride.

Cyrus raises his eyebrows toward the Beta, only because he usually has a lighter tone of voice when speaking to his "favorite Sigma", as Cyrus would say. "I'm pretty drunk right now," He adds effect by stumbling slightly, an almost real drunken giggle escaping his mouth, "So you offered to drive me home. What are friends for?" Cyrus winks at Maddox, stuffing his hands into his pockets. He knew just as well as the Beta how they had to keep up appearances as "just friends". Considering this night though, maybe it would be best for them to move their plans off-campus.

Maddox can't tell if Cyrus is acting or actually as drunk as he appears to be. Either way, it worked for whatever cover story they would most likely have to use next. Well aware that the atmosphere inside was making him more anxious and tense than he would like to be, he swung one of Cyrus' arms around his shoulder, if only for appearances sake, and heads outside. Thankful for the fresh night air. "First Archie and now you. I should start charging every time I have to look after one of you". His tone may sound a bit stiffer than he meant it too, but for the most part, it's a byproduct of the stressful night. In all honestly, Maddox never minds looking after either of them. Something he would only ever do for a select few.

Cyrus chuckles, letting the other boy wrap his arm around his shoulder for support. Honestly, Cyrus is drunk, but not enough to require assistance. Either way, Cyrus took advantage of the situation and pressed a quick kiss to the other boy's neck, hidden by his arm wrapped around Maddox's shoulders but hopefully allowing for Maddox to relax. He finally replies, "I think what we're doing tonight is payment enough, wouldn't you agree, baby?" The pet name is added in for a blush effect on the Beta, there's no romantic feelings behind it. What they're about to do will leave both parties satisfied, no matter how much they playfully banter with each other now.

Maddox has to hand it to the blondie, he certainly has a knack for changing his mood. ”Yeah, yeah…” he mumbles, attempting to still show annoyance but failing miserably. A smile slowly tugs at his lips, probably adding to Cyrus’ smug look. The flush of pink across his face at the mention of the pet name probably doesn’t help either. Maddox blames it on the weird mood he’s in. Girls call him β€œbaby” all the time. This is no different. Once they’re both inside the car, Maddox takes off, eager to get as far away from the place as possible. ”No jumping out the window” he states, eyes fixed on the road. ”I don’t need any more injuries”. Almost immediately after it’s said, he regrets it. The comment has left a door open for Cyrus to talk about the fight, and most likely make fun of it.

Cyrus snorts at the comment. "You know, people were worried about us "damn bastards" in Sigma ruining the night, but none of us were even involved! But you had to poke your little nose in, Maddy, and you sure showed those Kappas who's boss. Think you can do the same for me?" Cyrus purrs right into Maddox's ear, his breath hot and sweet with alcohol on the other boy's skin. One of Cyrus's favorite activities with Maddox is to see just how far he can rile the Beta up before it either hits him right back or he's victorious. For now, it seems like Maddox's mood has heightened Cyrus's chance of winning tonight, but he never takes his guard down. Constant teasing usually led to Cyrus bettering the mood of the other boy, which would allow for Maddox to tease right back, usually leading to both of the boys with reddening faces.

Maddox knows exactly what he's trying to do, but despite his bitter mood, he’s not planning on letting him win so easily. The Sigma’s hot breath against his neck gives him goosebumps from head to toe, and he’s never been happier to be wearing a suit. A low chuckle finally escapes him, the kind that usually signals he’s ready to strike back. If Cyrus thought he had an advantage tonight he was sorely mistaken. ”If you really want to go down that road” he says thoughtfully before taking advantage of the blonde’s proximity and turning his head long enough for their eyes to meet. ”Then so we shall, sweetheart” he almost purrs, adding in a devious smirk for good measure. Turning his attention back to the road, he picks up speed, taking the fastest route to his own apartment off campus.

The next few words that leave Maddox's mouth leave Cyrus a bit stunned, realizing he would have a fight tonight. But with Maddox, isn't every night a feisty one? Maddox turns his head, accepting Cyrus's challenge for the night, his eyes locking with Cyrus's for a long enough moment for Cyrus's cheeks to heat up. The blonde's mouth drops open, but only for a moment, twisting into a satisfied and wicked grin. "Naughty boy..." Cyrus murmurs under his breath, licking his lips in satisfaction. He always loved the fight, especially with a boy like Maddox. When this first started, Maddox was just a pretty face who ended up looking just as nice under the sheets, but he's starting to enjoy, almost-- love? -- their time together.

But tonight is not about any romantic feelings, Cyrus has to keep telling himself. The more he depends on those feelings driving his night, the deeper and more confusing this relationship will become. "Taking advantage of me... in a state like this? You're naughtier than I thought, Izumi." Cyrus teases, feeling the warmth of slight drunkenness in his stomach. The alcohol only emblazons him, gets rid of any inhibitions that may have been in his sober mind.

”I’ve never claimed to be a good guy” Maddox retorts, smirk still in place. ”And you should know better than to mess with me” the second part of the statement comes out almost as a threat, firm enough to let Cyrus know he’s in for it. The apartment parking lot is almost empty when they finally arrive, sign that not very many people are home, meaning that they can be as loud as they want. Which they usually are, regardless of who's home and who isn't. After taking a moment to make sure the car is locked, they head up to the penthouse. Maddox had just been there in the morning, but it definitely felt nice to be back. The atmosphere is much calmer than that of the Beta house.

The hallway lights slowly turn on one by one and Maddox can finally see Cyrus’ face more clearly. His cheeks are a bright pink color, probably a side effect of the alcohol, or of Maddox, or quite possibly a mixture of both. ”How many drinks did you have, exactly?” he asks with a chuckle.

"Not that many!" Cyrus cries out, almost indignantly. He doesn't mean to sound almost childish, but he wasn't going to let Maddox get the upper hand on him. As they walk towards Maddox's apartment, Cyrus feels more and more "in the zone" as Jack would say. Once they're nearing the apartment, Cyrus grabs Maddox by the belt loops and presses him against the nearest wall, their bodies smashed against each other. Cyrus adopts a seductive look in his eye, and retaliates with, "You should know better than to underestimate me, baby." With the mix of alcohol, and both the boys in a certainly better mood, the night can only get better from here. And in Cyrus's mind, he would be the reason why, though that may be in part to his rare, but still present, ego.

Maddox can't help but let out a chuckle, as expected, his little sigma bettered his mood in a matter of minutes, already managing to make him forget about the tense situation back at the event. It's a skill, really. A skill that Maddox really wishes the boy didn't have. Shutting down any unecessary thoughts, he pulls the blonde inside, pushing him down onto the nearest couch. The Beta serveys him for a moment before pointing at the bow around his neck. "I hate bowties" he says nonchalantly, slowly tugging on an end until it's come undone. "That needs to go". After tossing the small piece of fabric aside, his gaze moves to the other's jacket. "Not a big fan of that jacket either" he says as if he's actually critisizing his fashion sense, and teasingly pulls it off of him. A sly smile works it's way onto his face before his eyes wander down to the blonde's pants. "And those...too tight" he says with a slow shake of the head. "Might as well not be wearing any"

Just like his Beta to take the upper hand. As much as Cyrus tries to be the dominant one, having someone like Maddox makes him lose his usual authority. Still, he tucks in any teasing when he can, though he's preoccupied with the Beta taking off his clothes for him. "Wore them just for you to take them off," Cyrus jokes, taking a moment to bring the other boy's lips to his own. Cyrus pulls away for a moment, surveying Maddox's clothes with his own discretion. "How are you to be critizing my clothing choice when you're wearing that? Sugar, we're gonna have to take everything off." Cyrus says, eyeing the other boy and biting his lip.

As fun as it is, for a moment ater their lips meet, Maddox forgets their little play fight. If only momentarily. An effect he really wishes the Sigma didn't have on him. He hates it...truly and utterly hates it, almost as much as he hates the fact that he can't ignore it. "well then...have at it" he purrs, slowly pulling Cyrus' lips back up to his, almost craving them, as if that's the only thing he truly cared about right now. This seems to happen every time the two are together, regardless of what they're doing, Maddox craves the other's attention. It's been happening much more often than he'd like to admit, and he keeps telling himself that coming back to Cyrus is a bad, very bad, reckless idea, but never follows through. Instead, he ignores whatever feelings may be hovering around and focuses purely on the physical, just as he's doing now as their lips meet for a much longer time than before. Feelings have nothing to do with it.

Cyrus could only smile, really smile, as Maddox continued to kiss him. What happened next dissolved into a tangling of limbs, many kisses between the two, and both of them very naked on this very expensive couch. It should have just been that, but both of them feel too much for the other for this experience to be purely physical. Cyrus had to restrain himself from doing or saying anything that would even suggest his feelings for Maddox, focusing on how good Maddox's body looked, especially without any clothes. But anything Maddox did that indicated he was having a good time, a great time by the sound of it, set Cyrus's heart on fire. Anything Cyrus did that Maddox liked, he would do it again, he would do it ten thousand times just to please this boy, this infuriating Beta that he likes a lot more than he should. It doesn't help that they make excuses to see each other all the time, excluding these past few weeks. The gap allows for Cyrus to be much more appreciative of it now.

This wasn’t the first hook-up of the week for Maddox, not even close, but something about this situation here and now felt...different. Almost as if the five previous days hadn’t even happened. Usually, he can get away with convincing himself that Cyrus means nothing to him... but recently...it's been getting harder, almost impossible to do so. Common sense told Maddox that he needed to put a stop to this before it ended biting him in the ass, but common sense was nowhere to be found tonight. Somehow, the two boys ended up in Mad's bed, tangled up in the expensive sheets and pillows and despite the nagging feeling in the back of Maddox's mind telling him to end it right then and there, he couldn't. That's enough...stop!- he keeps repeating in his head, time and time again, until he finally does, almost struggling to catch his breath, but his eyes met Cyrus' bright blues and any resolution he had to end things disappears, just like that. All he wanted now was to keep the blonde here, in his bed, for as long as the other allowed him.

Cyrus could sense, once their eyes met, that Maddox was overthinking something; he could practically see the gears turning in the other boy's head. He puts a hand on each side of Maddox's face and makes him look at him. "Hey, stop thinking for a little bit, okay?" Cyrus produces a genuine smile after his words, a smile only few see these days. Cyrus was being sort of a hypocrite, with his mangling thoughts thinking of things much too romantic, but he pushes them to the back of his mind. Something Maddox isn't doing very well now. Cyrus pecks the other boy's lips and lets his eyes trail up and down the other boy's body. "I'm sure whatever you're thinking about isn't as important as me." Cyrus teases, leading Maddox into a deeper kiss, his arms wrapping around Maddox's neck.

Maddox almost has to laugh at Cyrus' last statement, stopped only by the other's lips. Not as important... he repeats in his head but immediately discards it, deciding to take his advice and stop thinking. Thinking too much can be dangerous, especially under a situation like this where a thought could lead to him saying or doing something that he will regret. Thinking isn't needed in sex, it's only an obsticle. Locking up all of his thoughts at the very back of his mind, his focus now is Cyrus' body moving in sync with his. Nothing else matters. Nothing else should matter. Come next morning, they'll each go their seperate ways, forgetting what happened the night before, just like it should be.

Nothing matters. Nothing matters except their bodies moving against each other. In the heat of the moment, Cyrus has gotten very good at ignoring his thoughts toward Maddox. When he first realized he had actual feelings toward the Beta, he was slightly distant, because everything in his head was making their time together more meaningful. But he learned quick how to shut it off. And until now, it seemed to be working. Now, however, he can't help but feel Maddox's heart beat in his chest and get sucked into Maddox's eyes and-- fuck, he's in way over his head. Right in the middle of this "fun", Cyrus pulls away, his breath heavy and body tense. "Maddox I think I-" the rest of the sentence chokes him as Maddox looks him right in the eye. He almost coughs at the effort to get words out. "-I need to go."

He realizes just how deep-- how fucked --he is and one more minute with Maddox might just break his resolve to keep the boy in the dark on Cyrus's attraction to him. All those thoughts he pushed away are rushing back at him and it's too much to bear. He hikes his pants back on and unintentionally grabs Maddox's shirt instead of his own.

For once in his life, Maddox was speechless. Leave it to Cyrus to leave him scrambling for words. Not that there is anything he could possibly say to make the situation any better, quite the opposite in fact. One simple word could make this ten times worse, so he opts out of responding, watching the blonde ready himself to leave. Half of Maddox wants to tell him to stay, at least five minutes longer, but the logical side tells him he has to go. This is what Maddox thought of doing in the first place, so why does it feel like his heart is being shattered into tiny pieces. "Right..." he mutters, pushing himself off the bed. "This was fun and all but I have class first thing tomorrow so go on" his tone is icy, but he refuses to look the blonde in the eyes. Not going to make that mistake twice. Leaving the other to gather his things, he heads towards the bathroom, putting in one last "Lock the door on your way out" before closing the bathroom door behind him.
