PERSONALITY
When Naomi first arrived at Fulton, she was a fiery slip of a girl, winning friends left and right with her easy smile and her good humor. Now- she is very much the same, just older, wiser, smoother. She's a touch cooler, too. Still quick to smile and even quicker with her quips, but also occasionally unintentionally manipulative. She is buoyed by her pride, as Alpha girls are wont to be, and she tends to make her pride come first, leaving others only slightly aware of just how skewed her priorities are.

This being said, she is a creature of kindness, and remarkably nonjudgmental despite her sorority's repute for being otherwise. She takes what is given to her, and believes that respect is something to be mutually given. When she is treated otherwise, she reacts similarly, and has never been mistaken for a doormat in any sense of the term. She is protective of her younger sisters, and has definitely played the unenviable 'designated driver' role more than once on Alpha outings.

Confident and charismatic, Naomi has the knack for pulling in the attention of a room. She seldom gives anything less than an excellent first impression, and her hot-headed impulsiveness is undercut by a cool and intelligent sense of humor. She is sharply sarcastic, and her wit is omnipresent whenever she's talking, as she shoots out quips left and right. This trait of hers often comes into use when drama starts to overcrowd the Alpha house -as it is prone to. One to avoid drama herself when she is able, Naomi is impressively skilled at diffusing the tension, cracking a joke and getting both parties to soften before playing the mediator. She is quick-witted and mischievous, prone to teasing and always seeming to know exactly how to rib someone successfully.

Unfortunately, her tendency to give advice and help other people sort out their issues doesn't necessarily mean that she is very good when it comes to solving her own problems. When things get too deep and too personal, Naomi is more the sort to ignore it and pretend it doesn't exist than face it head on. She doesn't mind playing diva when joking around about first-world problems, but the second she's faced with any sort of emotional crisis, Naomi has a habit of closing up and simply rejecting its existence for the sake of saving face and not appearing vulnerable.

Fun-loving and thrill-seeking, Naomi's studiousness juxtaposes her bold determination to live life as freely as possible. She tends to sidestep and generally avoid things that will keep her too tied down, largely because she fears failure as opposed to responsibility. She doesn't want to mess up, basically, and that shows in many of her actions as well as her perfectionist ways.

She is funny and sweet, and fiercely loyal to those she dedicates herself to. In spite of her stubborn pride, and her steadfast eye-for-an-eye philosophy, she'd drop all of that if necessary to save the people she cares about. Her priorities at time seem a touch skewed, and only the closest seem aware of exactly how flawed she is beyond the wicked sense of humor and charming smile -but when push comes to shove, it is her friends she will stand by, protecting them to the bitter end.

So begins...

G U Y SXNXT I E SX&XG I R L SXW /XP E A R L SX

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?

"Maybe I should just..." Nicholas paused, sighing as he leaned his head against the door to Amaris' bedroom. Most of the other Thetas had already left with the promise of texting Amaris when they arrived. Some were just going out for drinks and something to actually eat before the Guys in Ties & Girls in Pearls event since the most that would be served were hors d'oeuvres. After church service Amaris had grudgingly attended for Nick's sake, they had partaken in a very late lunch at a Cuban restaurant that left them both still relatively full, so they had separated for some wind down time before getting ready. Amaris paused on the bed, her left hand in the jar of As I Am's DOUBLEBUTTER® CREAM, and glanced at the closed door, an eyebrow raised in question that Nick could see without actually being face-to-face with the Theta president. "Maybe I should just change. Ya know, it won't even take that long and not many people'll see me if I just - " Amaris sighed herself before cutting him off. "Let me see," she requested before swiping a bit of the rich emollient onto her fingers so that she could rub into her palm. Nick fought back a whine. "But - " Amaris hurried up with her demand of "Now!" that elicited a groan. Chuckling to herself, Amaris proceeded to liberally apply the cream to her hair, running her covered digits through her curls and coils so that each individual strand received the moisturizing blend of natural butters and organic oils.

While Nick counted to ten into his head before opening the bedroom door and stepping inside, shoulders too tense for his own good and pose too awkward to be comfortable. No matter, though, because once Amaris caught sight of him, she was wearing a wide enough grin that it was hard to ignore the small gap in her two front teeth that she swore up and down - combined with her freckles - didn't make her look as adorable as Nick had once stated. "Hello, Daddy," she purred and Nick glared, exasperated. "Yep, I'm changing," he stated firmly and Amaris was on her feet, though her hands never left her hair. "Okay, okay, I'll stop, Jesus." She rolled her eyes at the uncomfortable hand Nick ran over his hair, hurrying up to get the cream off of her hands and onto her hair so that she could use them. "You look good, babe, I swear." To which he answered with a distrustful glance and retorted, "Yeah, cuz I let you dress me like the dudes you seem to like." Amaris painted on her face a rather insulted expression, placing a hand over her covered chest while the other one grasped a hold of her vibrating cell phone. "Okay, first of all, I resent that. If I was really trying to dress you like any of the guys I like, you just wouldn't have any clothes on, I'm just saying." Nick guffawed at that and offered a "wow" while she seemed to continue as if she didn't hear him at all. "Second, if I let you go back to your room now, you won't come back out and I really don't have time to be owning Fulton any money for a damn door." Which was true. In the four years that they had known one another and been best friends, Nick had obstinately refrained from attending two events and proved that his stubbornness could not be matched, at least not when Amaris actually wanted to go out and was not about to spend the night outside his door trying to convince him that going out was a great idea. "And furthermore, you actually do look good, Nicky. Like, really good. I sent a pic of the clothes to Jenny and Gigi, and they both loved it. I would never set you up."

Nicholas knew this. He had gotten the stamp of approval from both of his little sisters before he had even gotten out of the shower earlier. He also trusted Amaris, particularly with fashion, but with pretty much everything. She had rarely ever steered him wrong. At the same time, it wouldn't be inherently him if he didn't feel self-conscious, nervous. And he had every reason to be. While he admitted that in the last few days, things had slowed down, just a little, between himself and Weston, he hadn't exactly explained to Amaris - who, thankfully, hadn't pressed - why things had slowed down. As much as he knew they probably would share a laugh over his reckless behavior, how comfortable can any one person be with admitting that they had gotten caught getting very comfortable with being on their knees for and in between their boyfriend's legs just as their frat brothers walked into their bedroom? Particularly when said boyfriend-not-boyfriend was Wes, a Beta, and his Big, Hudson, (who already seemed to hate everything that nick was, was the one who caught them. Nick could still feel the mortification welling up within him and it made his shoulders sag from the tension he had entered the room with. Which Amaris noticed but said nothing about as he dropped into a seated position on her bed. "I know, I know," he said finally, shaking his head after at her questioning look to which she nodded in understanding. He wasn't ready to have the conversation and unless it seemed absolutely detrimental to his existence to have the conversation, Amaris wasn't going to force it out of him. "You know how I can get with things like this." Nick rubbed tiredly at his eyes, belatedly recalling that he was wearing contacts instead of his glasses. Amaris smiled softly.

"How about this, babe? I take a pic of you and send it to Eli and Omi. If they text me by the time I'm ready to go and say that they like it, then you know you're good. If not, we'll stop by the house and you can change," she offered and he smiled gratefully. Appeased, Amaris smirked and with the camera already opened on her phone, she snapped a faceless pic to send to the two girls before plugging the phone back up to its charger. "Alright, get out. Mama needs to get ready." She stated and Nick chuckled, chucking one of her smaller pillows at her and hightailing it out of the room before the retaliating pillow could hit him. Still laughing softly to himself, Nick thought about it for a moment before taking a small selfie of his own and proceeding to send a text to Wes, even as his nerves told him that it wasn't a good idea.

To: Wes
Whatcha think?

To: Eli, Omi
Baby boy feels self-conscious. What do you girls think?

"Archie what on earth are you doing? You've had me waiting out here for decades." With a chuckle, Archie brushes off his Big Brother's exaggerated claims. "Yeah, yeah Mad," He replies with a roll of his eyes, "I'll be out in a sec." Combing a hand through his hair, Archie sighs as he adjusts his bow tie, thinking about what kind of mayhem he might get up to tonight. Whilst he's on that thought, Archie pulls out his phone and shoots off a few texts. With his first was an attached image of Archie and his outfit.

To: Eli
ATTACHMENT : PICTURE
Idk if ur gonna be able to keep ur hands off me tonite ;-)


Archie meant it purely as a joke, but he knew it would rile her up which would make for a great laugh. And then, as his mind drifts to more, confusing friends, he shoots another text off to Naomi.

To: Omi
U need a hot date for tonite? Hmu


After sending off his final message, Archie heads over to his bed and gets on his knees, grabbing a small, silver box out from underneath it, he takes a seat on his bed, trying not to crease his trousers as he does. They cost enough that he didn't plan on fucking them up before the party even started. Opening the lid, Archie smiles down at the contents before sticking his hands into the tin and pulling out some rolling papers. The look on his face resembled that of a child in a candy store. Deciding to pre-roll some joints for after the party, Archie gets to work with his delicate touch using a cherry paper - his personal favourite, although birthday cake was a close second.

Finishing his perfect roll, Archie slips the joint between his lips before jumping up off of the bed to give his appearance one last look over. With a slightly jump, Archie silently curses Maddox for creeping up on him like that. "If I wake up with gray hairs tomorrow, it's on you." Turning around so that he is now facing his Big Brother, Archie laughs, "Dude you seriously need to chill," Archie says as he then lights the joint and offers it to Maddox, heading over to his bedroom window and opening as wide as it would go. Of course they weren't allowed weed in the Beta house, but that wasn't gonna stop Archie, if they smoked it out the window and then sprayed a load of aftershave, the stench of weed would be covered well enough. "This should help." Archie's grin goes from ear to ear as he watches his Big take a drag.

"Shit, almost forgot about pre drinks," Heading over to the mini fridge he kept in his bedroom, purely for alcohol, Archie chucks Maddox a beer. "No one turns up to a party sober these days." Archie kids, sending the elder boy a wink. "So who am I wingman-ing you for tonight?" Archie asks, knowing that Maddox was his number one guy when he needed someone to talk him up to girl (as well as guys - on the sly) and vice versa. "You still mooning over, what's his name..." Archie pauses to think for a minute, despite knowing exactly who he was talking about, "Oh yeah - Cyrus." Archie finally says, his grin being replaced by a mischievous smirk. Hoping that what he had brought up would make Maddox blush (which he didn't doubt it would), Archie leans back against the windowsill taking a sip of his drink as he reaches out for the joint that was in Maddox's hand.

Yuda was stalling the process of getting ready. She had been sitting in front of her vanity for twenty minutes with the intention of at least attempting to look nice but instead settled for a few matches on a mobile card game she had. She sighed upward to blow some loose strands of hair upward and faced herself in the mirror. Usually, she wouldn't attend things like these, but, she knew without a doubt, this one the one event that Amaris would make her attend. She knew better than to try to have her way this time. "It's only one event Yuda, just one." She told herself. "You can just stand around and drink some punch and then, before you know it, it'll be over and you'll be in your nice warm bed ready for the next day.". The mental pep talk didn't do her much good, but the thought of Amaris' anger and Daisy's persistence did. Daisy would probably carry her bridal style out of the house if Yuda didn't decide to go. That image was enough to get Yuda to put on a simple dress with matching heels and of course some pearls just to be funny, I guess. After that little soliloquy, Yuda felt the vibration of the phone tingle to her body. Doing a quick flip motion with her hand, she unlocked her phone and looked at the home screen. "Speaking of the devil." She said to herself.

To: Daisy
Was dealing with the inner turmoil of having to socialize, just slipped into an outfit a minute ago. I'll be catching that cab or shuttle with you btw.


"Now to send out a few texts."

To: Naomi, Amaris, Abigail
Yes, the rumors are true, I will be attending tonight's event. No pictures please.


Yuda stood in front of her mirror to check herself out a bit. She hoped the nude colors and simple looked would do. ITs not like she was trying to make a big entrance or a good first impression or anything. She sighed and sat back down on her bed. She would countinue another few rounds of her card game until somehow got back to her text.

Hex Code: #00cc00
Surprisingly, it only took about a half an hour after getting home from her dinner meeting with Hudson, for Audrey to get ready for the Guys in Ties & Girls in Pearls event. Her hair and makeup had already been done before dinner, so it only took a few touch ups to those, and getting dressed, for her to be ready for the night. Of course, she wasn't just done there. Once she decided that she looked flawless, she had to make sure that her girls did, as well. Audrey made her way through the two floors of bedrooms in the Alpha house, knocking on doors and inspecting outfits, throwing out compliments left and right, though they were all well deserved. To those who didn't deserve compliments, Audrey offered constructive criticism, pulling dresses out of closets, pinning back flyaway strands of hair, and handing out pearl necklaces and bracelets and earrings from her own stash. Her girls needed to look perfect, because as always, Audrey felt like any imperfection of theirs would reflect poorly on her, and anyone who knew Audrey knew that things had to be perfect. No exceptions. She had gotten through nearly all of the girls, sending many of them off in the Ubers that they had called, and insisting that they looked phenomenal. She hadn't cross paths with only a few girls, including the Arnaults, and Naomi, and she was in route to check on the latter as she sent out text messages to the former, and to Yaya, who wasn't in the house.

To: Ya Ya
Sounds good, love. I'm almost on my way. Make sure our girls behave until I get there ;)

To: Charlotte, Juliette
Charlotte, you and I are going to ride to the party together. We need to talk about some things. Jules, I told Kim and Gemma to wait for you, or you can ride with Naomi. I don't think Abby has left either.

Audrey didn't mention that Charlotte would be riding with her and Weston and Hudson, but that was unimportant right now. Right now, what Audrey was focusing on was knocking on Naomi's bedroom door. After she checked on her best friend, she would deal with Charlotte and Weston and seeing how that played out. She reminded herself that there was no need to worry about it anyway, because she would get her way. She always did, and with Hudson likely already prepping Weston for what was going to happen at this very moment, Audrey was sure that things would go just as they planned. "Omi, open up! Show me what my competition for tonight looks like! And if you're Uber is on the way, make sure there's an extra seat for my beautiful Little. I'm going to borrow yours for a few minutes, so we'll swap," she said playfully through the girl's closed bedroom door.

"Dude you seriously need to chill," Maddox's playful smirk remains in place as Archie turns to face him. The senior of the two makes a melodic whistling sound and a quick thumbs up as a sign of approval. Not that Archie needs approval when it comes to his looks, the boy's got confidence coming out of his pores. After closing the door, Mad watches as his little fumbles with something in his hands. It quickly becomes obvious why he had been taking so long. As usual, Mad declines the tempting offer of joining in. The beta isn't against it, nor does he care in the slightest that if Archie does it, he just prefers to steer clear of it himself. "Pass" he said, handing the blunt back to it's original owner. Archie shouldn't be too surprised, considering Maddox has never accepted a drag before. The next offer, howeverr, is something he can't decline. "Now you're talkin'" his smirk morphs into a grin as he gladly accepts the drink. Considering he hasn't had any coffee today, this is a necessity. Archie offers to be his wingman, as per usual. Normally Maddox would happily accept, but he's not exactly free for the night. You still mooning over, what's his name..." the younger pauses for a second, probably for the sake of stressing out his senior. Mad knows that's exactly what his junior is looking for when his grin turns into a mischievous smirk after mentioning Cyrus' name. Despite his best efforts, Mad can't hide the effect it has on him. "I don't know what you're talking about, Arch" he states, all the while hiding his face behind an almost empty glass. Archie has always loved teasing his big brother for no particular reasons, but most recently he has found a concrete source. "That joint must be rattling your brain cells already" he adds, the color of his cheeks now returned to normal.

Maddox can sense another teasing comment on it's way, but whatever it is, it's interupted by the loud knock of their rushed president. He gives his usual spiel about them needing to be at the party for the sake of the sorority girls' sanity. The boys know when Hudson is being serious versus when he's trying to be playful, even without being able to see his face. But after spending three years with the guy, Maddox an tell that even though his tone right now is his usual easy going president side, he's one hundred percent serious about some of the things he's saying. "If you plan on bringing home a Theta, you better text me first for approval". Maddox stifles a chuckle as his eyes gloss over Cyrus' reply that arrived merely second before. "Oh if you had any idea what I'm bringing home tonight.." he mutters under his breath, not entirely sure if Archie caught it, but not exactly caring either. There's no point in denying what his friend can easily figure out. "Let's go!" he says, urging his little out of the dorm room once they're sure Hudson, as well as the distinguishable smell of Archie's blunt, are both gone. "There are sorority girls in need"he adds, paraphrasing their senior's words. "Besides, you don't want to keep Eli waiting...or will it be Naomi tonight?" the cheeky smirk is back in place as the two head out of the almost empty Beta house. By now, the sophomore should be familiar with the way Maddox works. If he teases his big brother, he should just expect to be teased back.

The two arrive at the event a little later than expected, mostly due to the usually horrible Miami traffic. There's already a good crowd when they arrive and Maddox spots several familiar faces, one of those being Reid James. The blondie isn't even here yet and Mad can already smell the drama in the air. "If you need me, you know what to do" he states, loud enough for only Archie to hear. It shouldn't have to be said. By now Archie knows he can call on his big brother for whatever the need, but it's always nice to be reminded. Distancing himself from the younger boy, Maddox casually heads over to where Andre and Reid are standing, making sure to wait until they are finished so as to not interrupt. Betas should always be polite.

Naomi leaned forward towards the circular mirror of her vanity as she glided the dark rouge hue across her lips. Her cat-lined eyes blinked back at her reflection, and her newly painted lips curved into a satisfied smile. Raising her hands to her head, she thoughtfully brought together her straightened locks, considering for the third and final time whether she should actually put them in some sort of updo. Instead, she tucked both sides smoothly behind her ears.

Done. Finally.

Naomi loved parties, but good grief getting ready for them took forever. Especially when the party was one as illustrious as the 'Guys in Ties, Girls with Pearls' soiree she was currently prepping for.

A soft buzz sounded, and she stood up from the table. Walking over to her bed, she searched the strewn sheets for her phone, finally finding it nestling between a nook in her duvet and a cushion. She pressed her thumb against the middle button, and looked through the two new messages.

From; Yuda
Yes, the rumors are true, I will be attending tonight's event. No pictures please.

With a smirk, Naomi texted back a teasing reply.
To; Yuda
About time you got out of the house. Fucking vampire.
Wear something cute for me, k? ;*


The second message made her pause for the briefest of moments, but then she was sending back a reply just as jovial as the prior.

From; Pothead
U need a hot date for tonite? Hmu

To; Pothead
Depends... will said hot date pay for the uber?

"Omi, open up! Show me what my competition for tonight looks like!" Smiling softly, Naomi opened her bedroom door. However, upon hearing Audrey's next sentence, her expression turned to one of good-humored suspicion. "And if you're Uber is on the way, make sure there's an extra seat for my beautiful Little. I'm going to borrow yours for a few minutes, so we'll swap."

"Borrow? May I ask what for?"

As Archie finishes off the joint, he turns his gaze to Maddox and smiles, "Sure, sure - you have nooo idea what I'm talking about," He says sarcastically with a roll of his eyes, flicking the joint out of the window. "You can act like a dick all you want with the others, but you're my big bro Mad, I know you." With a wink Archie is finished teasing the elder boy and takes a sip of his beer, chuckling when he hears Hudson's shouts.

Making sure the smell of weed had faded, Archie walked over to the door, "You two better hurry up and get down there. If us Betas don't show our faces, every sorority girl on campus is going to go lesbian rather than having to choose a Kappa or Sigma to go home with. You know how big we are on community service, boys. Let's be good citizens and keep the ladies happy tonight, but that doesn't mean I approve of any pity fucks. If you plan on bringing home a Theta, you better text me first for approval."
Hudson's voice held a joking tone, but Archie knew he and Mad better get going, they didn't want to piss off their fearless leader. With a mock salute and "Yes sir." Directed at Hudson, Archie and Maddox made their way out of Archie's room, past the common room and out of the door. "You don't want to keep Eli waiting...or will it be Naomi tonight?" It's Archie's turn now to play dumb as he gives Maddox an innocent look and a small shrug, "I have no idea what you're talking about Maddox," Archie feigns nonchalance but eventually is facade cracks and Archie can't help but smirk, "Why not both?" He finishes with a wink as they pull up to the party.

Hopping out of the car, Archie can see the party is already in full swing but before he can step inside, his phone beeps with incoming texts, smiling at each reply from his friends, Archie quickly shoots some back.

To: Daze
When don't you look stunning? You better get here soon.

To: Eli
Oh I love it when you talk dirty.

To: Abby
Already here, hmu when you are.

To: Omi
I'm already here, but I can offer you an uber ride back to mine? ;-)


Tucking his phone back away in his inside jacket pocket, Archie pats himself down before he and Maddox head in. "If you need me, you know what to do." Archie gives his big a thumbs up as he watches the guy walk off. It doesn't take long before Archie is approached by someone new, what was her name? Katie, Karen, Kat? Archie couldn't remember but she was making a direct beeline for him so Archie just stood still and smiled at her, hoping the name would come back to him.

"Arch, I haven't seen you in agesssss," Archie nods, despite not being able to remember ever seeing her, as the girl leans further in toward him, a strand of long blonde hair falls onto his shoulder as she whispers, "We should catch up sometime." So maybe Archie didn't recognise the girl, but that doesn't mean the proposition didn't sound tempting to him. "Let me buy you a drink." He offers, and the pair wander over to the bar.

Once there, Archie notices Eliana and sends her a mischievous smirk, "Miss me?" He asks the girl, having not seen her for a couple days, feeling a tug on his sleeve, Archie turns to the girl at his side and then back to Eliana, "Oh, yeah this is, uh-" Archie pauses for a moment and the girl frowns at him, "I'm Amy." She says. Unable to hide his surprise, Archie wonders where the hell he got Katie from, but smiles like he knew it the entire time anyway. "Of course Amy," Archie looks at her with a soft smile, before turning back to Eliana, "She's a friend."

As the bartender makes his way over to where Archie is stood, he attempts to order some drinks, but is greeted with a firm "I'm gonna need to see some ID." from the bartender. Pretending to pat down his pockets, Archie gives the bartender an exasperated look and a shrug before saying, "Damn, I think I must've left it at home." Turning to Amy, Archie smiles sheepishly until she gets the message. "Oh right, yeah I'll get these - here's my ID." Taking a glance at her license as she hands it over to the bartender, Archie's eyes widen when he realises that she's 24. He didn't even know people could stay at Fulton for that long.

_____________________________________________
"My, oh, my, don't you look stunning?" Audrey gushed, with playfully dramatic enthusiasm added in for the fun of it when Naomi opened the door. What she said was no joke though, as Naomi seriously looked gorgeous. She was an attractive girl to begin with, but that black dress was alluring and sensual in all of the right places, while still remaining modest enough to fall in line with the classy values that the Alpha women embodied. Audrey smiled with approval and pleasure, as she met Naomi's gaze following the girl's question. "For important, top-secret Alpha Theta Pi presidential duties, of course!" she answered teasingly, knowing that it was better to play the humor card in this scenario, then be blatantly secretive. Naomi was arguably Audrey's closest friend in the house. The girls had rushed together, had worked their way up together, and had done all of that while maintaining a strong and genuine friendship. Audrey knew that Naomi knew her better than most girls, and that if she could trust anyone, it was this girl, but Audrey also knew that what she was doing was wrong. And that Naomi would tell her that. And that she didn't want to hear that. She much preferred hearing what she and Hudson had discussed, about how this wasn't selfish and wrong, and was just them being good people. Regardless of whether she believed it or not, it was those kinds of thoughts that she wanted filling her head right now. She didn't need anyone else to doubt her morality any more than a part of her was already doing.

However, she knew that she owed Naomi at least a little bit more than that, so with a smile that was nearly apologetic, she added, "Nothing bad. Nothing you need to worry about. I just need to give our little black sheep of the family a little bit of TLC. You can have her back as soon as you get there." A glance at her phone signaled that Hudson and Weston were almost here, and that it was a good thing too, because Audrey didn't want to be too late for this party, and the time signaled that they were getting close to that point. Though she didn't know if Naomi would push for more information than that, the guiltier side of Audrey didn't want to handle it even as a possibility, so she purposely didn't give Omi much of a chance to answer before giving her a wink, and starting towards the end of the hallway where the stairs were. "I'll have Jules wait for you outside, and I'll see you there!" she called out.

Juliette was in the kitchen, having poured herself another glass of champagne, when she got the text that Audrey had sent to both her and Charlotte. The message had made her frown, only because she was annoyed that Audrey wanted to socialize with Charlotte more than her. Putting the attention-needy side of her to rest, she knew that Charlotte was probably in trouble, given that her only interactions with Audrey tended to focus around Audrey lecturing Charlotte for being a bad Alpha, but Juliette still wanted to frown over the idea of her Big wanting to spend time with anyone other than her. Charlotte was just as displeased with the text message as Juliette was, groaning audibly after reading it. She was in the process of leaving the bathroom now, having decided that her outfit was as good as it was going to get, and being satisfied with her nails being almost completely dry by then. Charlotte was already over the theme of tonight's party, but she had been counting on it being bearable if she could spend the night with her real friends, and not the Alphas. Being ordered to spend the commute to the party with Audrey was a pretty good sign that she wasn't going to get her way on that, and that the night would be more miserable than she expected. After sending a text back to Michaela and Jazmyn, explaining that she had to ride with Audrey, Charlotte headed downstairs, finding Juliette already lingering by the door.

"Why does she want to talk to you?" Juliette asked, arms crossed over her chest with her face sporting what seemed to be her signature look of anger and offense. "Don't tell me that you had Michaela and Jazmyn over again today." Juliette could not comprehend why Charlotte insisted on doing the exact opposite of what Audrey told her to do. In her opinion, it was clearly Charlotte who was the one out of the two of them who constantly needed the attention to be focused on her. That was why she was always purposely acting out, Juliette believed.

"I was going to ask you if you knew," Charlotte said, throwing in a nonchalant shrug. Aside from the nail polish incident, Charlotte felt like she had done well this week at adhering to all of Audery's unnecessary and annoying demands and standards. She had been busy with two school papers, so that was part of it, but for the most part, outside of class, she had remained in the Alpha house (alone), or in the campus library. She had barely seen her friends since last weekend, so she didn't know what Audrey could need her for. She assumed, however, that it was just going to be a car ride full of discussions about how she needed to use this party as a chance to redeem herself, and how she was forbidden from even looking in the Zetas' direction, or something.

"She didn't mention anything to me," Juliette acknowledged, before quickly continuing with, "But can you please be normal tonight? I don't want Audrey to be in a bad mood, and some of mom's friends are going to be here. You know they'll tell her if they see you don't anything weird with your friends."

Charlotte wanted to object, or at least tell her sister that unlike her, she had enough of a brain to know that she was allowed to interact with people from other houses, regardless of social stigmas, but before she could, Audrey came downstairs. As much as Charlotte disliked Audrey at times, there was no denying that she was everything than an Alpha president should be. She was beautiful and graceful, she knew how to demand respect and get her way, and she was intelligent and influential. Charlotte didn't like her being her President, but she could give credit where credit was due, and in part because she felt like Juliette's stare was going to burn a hole in the side of her face if she was anything but respectful, Charlotte smiled at the redhead. "You look pretty, Audrey."

"She looks more than pretty! Oh my god, that dress looks even better in real life than it did in the picture you sent me."

"Thank you, my loves," Audrey smiled, relishing in the praise for a moment, before nodding approvingly at the two girls, too. She had seen both outfits before they had been put on the girls, but the Arnault genes never failed to make anything look flawless. That was one more reason for why it was all the more frustrating that Charlotte didn't take advantage of it on nights that weren't like tonight, where she was forced to dress nicely. "You two look perfect as well," she complimented, with her eyes flashing towards Charlotte's hands to make sure that the girl had rid herself of the chipped black nail polish that she had originally planned on wearing tonight. With confirmation that it had been replaced, her smile returned, and she opened up the front door. "Jules, Naomi should be down in a minute. We'll see you there," she said, waiting for Charlotte to follow her out. Charlotte did follow, but only after sending a quick text to Naomi that read, "Why am I being forced to ride alone with Audrey? Is my body going to be found in a shallow ditch miles away in a few days?" While Charlotte knew that Naomi was best friends with Audrey, she was close enough with her own Big to confide in her about how she sometimes felt like Audrey unnecessarily targeted her. Additionally, given Naomi's closeness to Audrey, Omi was usually helpful in giving Charlotte a heads up right before Audrey was going to snap on her about something.

The limo was already waiting for them, so Audrey headed towards it, smiling at Abby as she passed and saying, "Abby, Naomi and Juliette are about to leave if you need a ride." Normally, she would have been welcoming for any of her Alphas to ride with her, but she needed some alone time with Charlotte, Hudson and Weston tonight, and once the pair were in the limo with the boys, and the driver pulled off, she knew that she had that.

Yuda was just lazing about, as usual, trying to occupy herself for A by while she was waiting for some texts to be returned to her. To her dismay, she couldn't lie down on her bed because she had already gotten ready. Since it was a special occasion, she actually did her hair. It was nothing fancy by any stretch of the imagination but it did require her to rev up her curling iron. She hadn't used that thing since the prehistoric ages so she hoped that it would work at least efficiently if not anything above decent. Yuda also had to grow through her minimal supply of makeup to touch up a bit. Touch up to Yuda meant a coat of lip gloss and very tiny amount of mascara and just a very faint hint of perfume; yes, Yuda did classify perfume as makeup. Yuda sat on her vanity, taping the wood and resting her hand on her chin because the card game she was playing for boring after losing five matches straight. So her she was, waiting for a message back. On the brought side, Yuda would get to see some cute girls. The dark side of it all was actually having to go through the effort of looking nice. Speaking of looking nice, Yuda thought she looked okay, nude dress and heels with a pearl bracelet. Simple and casual, just like her. She hoped that a pearl necklace was enough to satisfy Amaris. If it didn't satisfy the president, Yuda was pretty sure she would let her borrow a necklace or something. Sighing, Yuda began to play with her now curled strands of hair. Her own thoughts were boring her now, but, like an answer to a prayer, Yuda received three messages simultaneously. "Well would you look at me, Mrs Popularity." Yuda said, smiling to herself.

To: Daisy
Judging from Amaris' text you didn't even update me on the travel plans. I'll just assume you'll be hitching a ride with them and meet you downstairs.

To: Amaris
Yea, I'll come with, I'm assuming Daisy's already down there so I'll be down in just a sec.

To: Naomi
Omg, shut up! It'll be useless looking nice just for you because I'm pretty sure you'll be going home with someone else xoxo

To: Abigail
Only wearing something simple so don't overshadow me too much, k? :*


Yuda got up from her vanity, butt numb and walked over to her bed to grab her purse."Lip gloss? Check! She named the items as she dropped them in her bag. "Phone? Check! Wallet just in case because you know how daisy is? Check! Tampons just in case of an emergency? Check! Mints? Check! Tiny bottle of perfume, you know, just in case? Check! And lastly, my Nintendo DS for when the party grinds to a halt? Check! After grocery listing the items that Shen might need for the event, Yuda gave herself one last look in the mirror and fixed herself a bit; looking all around her room for her necessities threw her hair off a bit. She sighed, already ready to head home even if it was just the beginning of the night and headed down stairs to meeting Amaris Nicholas and Daisy.

"My, oh, my, don't you look stunning?" Naomi should have known better than to be so easily flattered, but she was easily won over by compliments, and she knew she looked good. It was a sleek look, and she looked almost feline with her subtly winged eyes and slender frame. Still, even if she looked absolutely horrendous, Naomi was well aware that she could trust Audrey's compliments. The Alpha president had a penchant for brutal honesty- if Naomi looked bad, Audrey would certainly tell her so.

With a flirtatious smile, she pointedly looked the redhead up and down, commenting in a faux blase tone, "Not so bad, yourself."

She was making a severe understatement, of course. Audrey looked gorgeous. Audrey always looked gorgeous. The girl simply wouldn't settle for anything less.

"For important, top-secret Alpha Theta Pi presidential duties, of course!" A little red flag immediately went up, and Naomi raised her brows in a touch of exasperation. Yes, Naomi knew that Charlotte was... different, and she knew that Audrey loathed when the certain expectations of an alpha weren't met by said alphas, but...

Well, that was just it. Charlotte simply didn't fit, and what's more, the girl had no desire to. Sure, she did try to appease Audrey's demands, but she never changed herself. As far as Naomi could tell, Charlotte's priority was Charlotte, and the Little was not about to throw away who she was in order to conform to some admittedly twisted set of standards.

Naomi actually admired that about her, not that she would ever tell Audrey that.

"Nothing bad. Nothing you need to worry about. I just need to give our little black sheep of the family a little bit of TLC. You can have her back as soon as you get there."

Naomi knew the game by now. Audrey wasn't letting her get a word in edge ways, which suggested that Audrey was up to something of arguable moral standing. As the redhead spun around and headed down stairs, Naomi could only sigh in mild frustration.

"Kuso..."

Her phone buzzed again, and she chuckled at Yuda's message.

From; Yuda
Omg, shut up! It'll be useless looking nice just for you because I'm pretty sure you'll be going home with someone else xoxo

To; Yuda
jealous are we? ;) See you soon xx

Her phone buzzed again, twice, and she opted to read her little's text first.

From; Charlittle
Why am I being forced to ride alone with Audrey? Is my body going to be found in a shallow ditch miles away in a few days?

For a second, she felt a twinge of guilt. She's tough. She can handle whatever crazy scheme Audrey's got cooked up I'm sure.

To; Charlittle
I'm as lost as you are... if you die, I'll avenge you tho, so don't worry xx

Reading Archie's text, she only scoffed, and stuffed the phone into her purse with a roll of her eyes. "Moron..." She betrayed a smile before taking a final look in the mirror and heading downstairs. Smiling at Abby and Juliette, she nodded towards the uber waiting outside.

"Coming?"

Yuda made a quick dash from the upstairs bedroom down to the living quarters and out the front door, trying not to trip on her heels. She hoped no one would be too upset that she was running a fraction of a second late. She's usually punctual, but tomgight was gonna be pretty hectic so it might as well start hectic. She fixed her hair as she ran it the spot Amaris' Bentley was usually parked in. It was pretty far from the house because something about sun exposure, she doesn't really know or care. She immediately swung the door to car open, and basically forced her way next to Eliza. Which reminded she forgot to text Eliza, oops. Well she was here now and that's all that really matters. "Hey everyone."She said, sort out of breath. She didn't really run to the care it was more of a run walk because who can even run efficiently in heels. You all look pretty good, be careful not to outshine me." She teased as she took out her phone to respond to a text she had gotten.

To: Naomi
In your dreams sweetie, see you at the party and ALWAYS check the drink if someone offers you one.


She put her phone back into her purse and looked up at everyone. I have all the feminine necessities you might need ladies, so don't be afraid to ask She said, sort of proud of herself that she had become kind of a reliable friend. Well, I am all ready to go.

She sat on the porch and watched as most of the girls were already leaving to the event. She complimented a few of them as they left but the others she just nodded her head of approval. Abigail's phone chimed and it was a text from Daisy, who stated that she was riding with Amaris and Nicholas. She didn't bother to text her back as her phone chimed again and she looked at it as it was Archie sending her a text. She read it and started to type a reply.

To: Archie :D
Okay. I'll be sure to do that.


She sent the text then looked up at Juliette and Naomi as they came outside just as an uber driver pulled up. Her phone chimed again as Yuda name scrolled across the screen. She went to type a message but looked up again as Naomi asked if her and Juliette were coming. Abigail nodded her head and muttered. "Yeah." Was all she said as she got up and started to type a reply to Yuda whenever she got into the uber.

To: Yuda
I'll try not to. See you there though!


Abigail eyed Juliette and Naomi as she smiled towards them. "You ladies look absolutely stunning." She complimented them as she looked down at her phone and saw Ben's name come across her screen. A soft smile came across her face and she started to type a reply towards him.

To: Ben ♥
Awe, you're so sweet. And yes, a drink would be nice. Everything okay?
I am almost there, riding in an uber with Juliette and Naomi.


She sent the message then turned her head to look out of the window as they drove towards the event. She was excited to get there to have a drink with Ben and to dance with him but she was mostly excited to see everyone and just mingle. Abigail let out a small groan as she eyed Juliette and Naomi again. "Are we there yet?" She sat back in her seat in a kind of impatient manner before she saw the building within the distance. It caused her face to gleam with a certain happiness as she let out a light squeal.

"Audrey wanted to ride with Charlotte. She said she had to talk to her about some things," Juliette said to Naomi. She knew that Naomi likely already knew all of this, but it was her attempt at discretely trying to see if Naomi knew anything that Juliette didn't, that she would then add to the conversation. One of Juliette's defining traits was that she was pretty emotionally transparent. When things were bothering her, it was usually obvious in her demeanor. Knowing that Audrey probably only wanted to talk to Charlotte to yell at her about something was comforting, at least, considering that the only reason for why Juliette was really bothered by the situation, was because she was easily jealous. Even if she liked Naomi and Abigail all the same, just knowing that she was being excluded from Audrey's car made her feel like riding with her two other Alpha friends was a lesser option. Surprisingly, Juliette did her best once they were in the car, to not be such a downer. She felt like the night had potential to be fun, and as long as her buzz remained active, it would at least be bearable.

"Oooh, who are you texting?" Juliette grinned teasingly, when she noticed the smile that appeared on Abigail's face as she read a text. Juliette and Abby weren't best friends or anything, but given that they had rushed together, she definitely felt close to Abby. Really, though, Juliette felt that way about most of the Alphas. While some of them probably found her energetic tendencies, and flightiness to be overwhelming sometimes, there was no denying that Juliette really loved the Alpha house and all of its members. "She's in a hurry to get there because she's totally meeting up with someone. I can tell by that look on your face," Juliette giggled, looking from Naomi and then back to Abby as she spoke. "Who is he, Abby? You have to tell us, we're your sisters!" she pressed playfully, though she was genuinely curious about whoever it was that seemed to have Abby eager to get there. For all Juliette knew, it could have just been Ayala or another Alpha, but jumping to the conclusion that it was a boy, particularly a crush, was more entertaining. She loved drama, especially good and positive drama that wasn't going to end in the dissolution of friendships, so something like this wasn't out of character for Juliette to be intrigued over.

"Audrey wanted to ride with Charlotte. She said she had to talk to her about some things," Naomi nodded in acknowledgement before shooting the young Alpha a reassuring smile.

"Don't worry about those two- we both know that you're Audrey's favourite."

At Abby's compliment, she grinned slyly. "Well, of course. We're alphas, remember?... And you look gorgeous, as per usual."

As they got into the uber, Naomi's phone went again, and once she was seated, she grabbed her phone to reply.

From; Yuda
In your dreams sweetie, see you at the party and ALWAYS check the drink if someone offers you one.

Geez, and now my paranoia-meter is going to be on high all night. Cheers, Yuda.
She smiled ruefully as she slipped the phone back into her purse, only now noting the conversation going on around her.

"She's in a hurry to get there because she's totally meeting up with someone. I can tell by that look on your face."

"Oh?" Naomi's brow rose slightly, and a spark of mischievous curiosity glimmered in her eyes.

"Who is he, Abby? You have to tell us, we're your sisters!"

Naomi nodded sagely at Juliette's statement.

"Yep. Alpha rules."

Naomi was all too aware of the irony of her demanding -even jokingly- that someone else release the details about their love life. Her own was the dictionary definition of "it's complicated", and she hadn't exactly been open to her sisters with any info. But this was different. Sort of. Not really.

Abigail eyes widened whenever Juliette had asked her who was she texting. She wasn't really going to tell her but then brought up that they were all sisters and that meant something in the Alpha household. A gulp came over her as she continuously eyed Juliette and Naomi even a nervous chuckle could be heard, as well. Abigail bit her bottom lip as she tried to beat around the bush instead of answering her questions. "Uhm, what?" She responded then started to shake her head and waved her hand. "It's no one, honestly." Abigail said as Naomi interjected into the conversation, too.

Abigail swallowed hard again as she let out a sigh with an eye roll. She knew that she wasn't going to get out of not telling them anything so she might as well just tell them now. "Okay. I'll tell you guys but it must be kept on the down low." She eyed them both and pointed a direct index finger at them. She then proceeded to talk. "Well, before Ben and Ya Ya got together, Ben liked me but I shot him down, obviously. So, now that him and Ya Ya are on a break, we've been talking how we were before. It's been amazing, honestly." She opened up to them about who she's been texting and smiling along the ride. "Promise me that you guys won't say anything. Especially to Ya Ya. What I am doing isn't wrong, is it? It's completely harmless." She asked but was honestly scared and nervous of their responses but she knew that they were going to tell her how it is and she wouldn't want it any other way. "Now, if we're done here, I'd like to go inside, please."

Juliette had not been expecting Abigail to reveal that she was texting Ben. That in itself was surprising, simply because it seemed random, but what made it shocking was that everyone knew that Ben and Ya Ya had dated. Ya Ya was Abigail's Big, and of all people, going after your Big's ex seemed like a bad idea. Juliette wanted to pry further, and ask if Ya Ya knew that they had been flirting previously, and back again now, and if so, was she okay with it? She wanted to ask why Abigail even wanted to cross into that territory, given how she was sure everyone would think the same thing that Juliette was thinking, about how it was a bad idea, when they found out. It wasn't like Ben was that amazing, as far as Juliette knew, to warrant sabotaging a friendship over. Then again, she barely knew him, but regardless, it didn't seem smart. More than that, it didn't seem like something that Abby would normally do, which made the situation all the more noteworthy, because it suggested that maybe Abby wanted something real to come out of this situation. It was noteworthy, yes, but that didn't mean that Juliette thought that it was a good idea, and Abby calling it harmless automatically had Juliette raising an eyebrow in skepticism.

"I'm not an expert on relationships, but... that definitely doesn't sound harmless," Juliette admitted. She didn't want to worry Abby or make it seem like she was putting her down for her choices, but it was hard for Juliette not to be honest. As she hated stated, she wasn't an expert on romance. Actually, she was far from it. Given her own insecurities, she had never been the type to allow herself to trust and commit to anyone. For most of her life, even basic flirting had left her feeling uncomfortable because any sort of physical attention forced her to act extremely self-critical. However, Juliette did know a thing or do about friendships, and this just didn't seem like something that was going to end well. It seemed like the right thing to do to at least warn Abby that maybe it was a subject that deserved a little bit more thought. At the same time, Juliette didn't necessarily care that much, and she was close enough with Abby to agree that she wouldn't mention anything. She knew Abby was smart, and she also knew that she knew Ya Ya better than her, so if Abby thought it wasn't a big deal, Juliette wanted to trust that it wouldn't be a big deal, too. "I won't say a word, though. I'll focus my attention on finding Naomi her match made in heaven, instead," she said, already slipping out of the car to allow the girls to do the same. Once Naomi was out, Juliette clasped her hand, signaling that she wasn't going to shake her that easily, just because they had gotten to the event. "So, you're friends with Nick, right? The smart boy? Well, I'm friends with him too, and I totally thinks he likes you as more than just a friend!" Really, she had little evidence to base that on. Calling Nick a friend was a stretch in itself for Juliette. Anyone who was kind to her usually received the title, but in reality, Nick was just a tutor to her. He humored her invasive personal questions from time to time, which was how she knew that he was friends with Naomi, but he had never said anything about liking Naomi as more than a friend... which made sense, given that he wasn't even interested in girls romantically. Even that wasn't enough to stop Juliette from somehow reaching that conclusion, and actually believing it herself, in the sake of having something to be excited about, though.

Archie had managed to finish his second JD and coke (courteously paid for by his current 'friend') by the time Ayala sidled up to where he was sitting. Beaming at the girl, Archie nudges her shoulder with his own, "If it isn't my favourite girl," Then turning to look at Eliana cheekily Archie adds, "Ah sorry, I mean favourite Alpha - Don't worry El, you'll always be the Theta for me." Forgetting about the fact Amy was even still there, Archie only remembers again when the two new girls he had begun talking to introduce themselves to her. Eliana's quick wit and silver tongue had Archie's smile growing even bigger, however he wiped it off of his face to feign shock. "Damn El, save some of that dirty talk for the bedroom." He winks at her, knowing that this will only rile the Theta up more, but he loved to tease people, especially Eliana.

Watching as Cyrus comes up to the bar and pulls out a fake I.D Archie's eyes light up. "Oh shit," He whispers to himself before patting down his pockets until Archie has found what he is after. Holding it up to the light and looking at it like it was the second coming, Archie inwardly kicks himself for forgetting he had a fake I.D earlier. "Drinks are on me guys." Handing it over to the bartender, Archie orders a round of tequila shots for their little group. "You sure this isn't a fake?" With a roll of his eyes, Archie lets out a sigh, "Wow yeah you got me, 100% fake," Shaking his head, Archie hands the card over to the bartender with a blunt "Scan it then." Thanking heavens that he paid that extra ten bucks to get his to be scannable.

"Alright." The bartender relents, having scanned the I.D and it coming up as real, he turns around to get them all set up, giving Archie some time to talk to the girls again. "So, was that you I saw kissing Benjamin earlier?" He asks Ayala with a smirk, "You going back to basics huh?" Despite knowing full well Benjamin was also stood just a few people down at the bar with Daniel, Archie couldn't care less. However, his eyes did linger over Ben's group as Archie caught sight of Daisy. Not speaking but instead communicating with the girl via a wink, Archie raises his glass at her before looking back to Ayala.

A sigh, and Archie turns his head to look at Amy again, having once more forgotten she was even there. "I'm just gonna go.." She mutters, clearly pissed off that Archie was a) surrounded by a load of girls, and b) spending more time talking to said girls rather than her. "Aight," He replies, not particularly caring but pretending to, "Catch up with me later if you need a ride home." Unable to help himself, Archie has to slip one more little flirt in there before Amy turns tail and walks away from him, seemingly still pissed yet not able to hide that little smile that crossed her face when Archie spoke.

As Archie watched Amy walk off, his eyes glazed over Naomi stood just by the doorway and his heartbeat quickens for a second. Shaking it off, he tries to focus on the others in front of him, they were easier to understand. He'd happily sleep with both Eliana and Ya Ya if they wanted him, but at the same time Archie was also chill just being friends. With Naomi, however, it was different but Archie couldn't quite place his finger on how.

Try, and failing, to refrain from texting her, Archie can't help but shoot off a quick text while he waits for Ayala's response.

To: Omi
I doubt I'm the first person to say this to you tonight - and I definitely won't be the last - but damn Omi, you look amazing.

Yaya bit her lip in concern as Cyrus teased her she wasn't used to this behavior from him which told her that he was definitely not feeling comfortable. She absently leaned on him momentarily, just a innocent gesture to let him know that he had her full support. "I always miss you when you're gone Cy." She teased back for appearance sake.

Her phone vibrated loudly against the countertop of the bar and she picked it up to see a text from Cas asking her if she wanted her usual. She bit her lip and glanced at Ben across the bar before quickly typing out Yes please, please be discreet I don't want Ben to start shit with you. She knew that Ben would obviously lose it if he found out that she was taking pills from Cas. She loved him but Ben wasn't very understanding when it came to things like that and she understood with his past and all but she wasn't addicted to pills or anything she just wanted a pick me up here and there.

"So, was that you I saw kissing Benjamin earlier?" She turned her head back to Archie when she heard him mention Ben, "You going back to basics huh?" She rolled her eyes at Archie. "He is not basic, he is sweet and kind and honest. You could learn something about that. Maybe get in a relationship instead of having a different girl in your bed every night." She said it in a teasing manner but the truth was that it kind of got under her skin when people said that Ben was boring.

Yaya always wanted stability because she never really got it growing up, not until she moved in with her Dad. Her grandma tried to give her stability but if there's one thing her grandmother lacked: stability. Whether she was jetting off with a new lover to Barcelona or Paris, or she was surprising Yaya with a day trip to Manhattan for some shopping, or she was hosting some lavish party on a fucking Tuesday night. Ben was stable and she loved that about him. They had a routine and shared plans and goals. She met his family and he met hers, they had dinner at her Dad's house every Wednesday. Even her sorority sisters would joke about how her and Ben were basically already married. She could see herself marrying him and moving into a pretty house not too far from both of their parents maybe having kids, you know the American dream. It scared the shit out of her. Part of her wondered if she allowed the attention of other guys to spice things up or if deep down she was testing him. She knew his friends thought that for sure.

She glanced around for her fellow Alphas when she briefly thought that she hadn't seen many of them around yet so she sent out a group text to Audrey, Abigail, Juliette, Charlotte, and Naomi that states Hey where is everyone? I'm on drink two and nobody seems to be here

"Okay. I'll tell you guys but it must be kept on the down low." The mischievous spark was still there, and Naomi leaned in furtively, only for her smile to freeze on her face.

"Well, before Ben and Ya Ya got together, Ben liked me but I shot him down, obviously. So, now that him and Ya Ya are on a break, we've been talking how we were before. It's been amazing, honestly. Promise me that you guys won't say anything. Especially to Ya Ya. What I am doing isn't wrong, is it? It's completely harmless."

Fuck. Fuckfuckfuckfuckfuck.

Naomi's inner monologue had turned especially expletive, and for good reason. How? How could Abby not think this is a horrible situation?

It had always been a rule, hadn't it? A cardinal part of both the girl and the guy code. Don't mess around with your friend's ex.

It was bad enough that they were Alpha sisters, but Yaya was Abby's Big! Somehow, that made the entire situation feel even worse.

It was none of her business, of course. And Naomi knew that. She shouldn't have pried in the first place, and now she wished she hadn't. She would have felt so much better if she'd remained blissfully ignorant of the entire scandalous affair.

Hey- let's not freak out, okay? Yaya is sex on a fucking stick. She's probably totally over Ben and out scoping the party for someone new and she's bound to be able to find someone, let's be real so-

Try as she might to persuade herself that it would all be alright, the sinking feeling in her gut assured her otherwise. Yaya was one of her best friends- what was she supposed to do? Lie? Feign ignorance? Tell her?

But she couldn't screw over Abby, either!

See? This is why I hate relationships. No good comes out of this shit. Ever.

This entire train of thought occurred in only a couple of seconds, before being interrupted by Juliette in a bid to change the mood.

"I'll focus my attention on finding Naomi her match made in heaven, instead." Naomi followed Juliette out of the car, rolling her eyes at the comment as the younger Alpha moved to clasp her hand.

"So, you're friends with Nick, right? The smart boy? Well, I'm friends with him too, and I totally thinks he likes you as more than just a friend!"

Naomi couldn't help it, she laughed. "Yeah... no. Something tells me I'm not really his type."

As they walked into the party, Naomi paused in the entrance, and looked around admiringly. The GiTGwP party seemed to get prettier every year, and this was no exception. Glancing down to her phone, she opened a message from Yaya, which only helped the guilt of the prior car confession to come back full force.

From; Yaya
Hey where is everyone? I'm on drink two and nobody seems to be here

To; Yaya
Don't worry, the fun has arrived. ;) we're at the entrance, come find us

Just as she was putting her phone back, it buzzed again, and she read the new text from Archie.

From; Archie
I doubt I'm the first person to say this to you tonight - and I definitely won't be the last - but damn Omi, you look amazing.

Brows rising in slight surprise, Naomi looked through the crowd around her, searching for a particular face. When she finally found the right one, she met Archie's eyes, and grinned brightly. Pointedly looking over him, she shot him a teasing smirk that clearly said, "You don't look so bad yourself."

"Okay, no to Nick, but I'll find someone for you before the night's over," Juliette insisted adamantly. Make it easier for me - who's already on your radar? You never tell me about your love life, Omi, and now that I think about it, I'm totally offended. Tell me that you're just a secretive person and that I'm not the only person that you neglect like this. And speaking of neglect, Audrey should be here by now, right? They did leave right before us, and I totally need to find her to tell her about what Abby's doing." Juliette said that as if there wasn't a second thought in her mind about confiding in Audrey about what she had just promised Abby she would keep to herself. It didn't even register with her, at first, that she was blatantly being a bad friend to Abby, since she was thinking that she was just being a good friend to Audrey. It had nothing to do with her feeling like she owed Ya Ya anything, since when it came down to it, she probably felt more of an alliance with Abby than Ya Ya, due to rushing with her. Her loyalty to Audrey overpowered that anyway, though. A bout of sense came over her a moment later though, and she turned her head back towards Naomi as they made their way deeper into the party, to a point where the bar was within view. "Or maybe you should tell her," she suggested, as she reminded herself that she liked watching conflict occur from the outside, but not so much when she was involved. "Or I could tell her with you," she continued, then deciding that she didn't want Audrey to think that she had known about something so scandalous, and hadn't immediately confided in her.

Her conversation with Naomi, and her own thoughts, were interrupted by a hand being placed on her shoulder. She looked back, startled some, until she saw that it was a familiar face behind her. It Grant Nelson, a junior Sigma, who Juliette had oddly found herself befriending the year before. Their friendship had originally begun out of him wanted to pursue her sexually, but she had expressed little interest almost immediately, and somehow, they had managed to become platonic friends. "Jules, can I steal you for a drink?" he asked, a grin on his face as he gave her shoulder a gentle squeeze. Really only because he had mentioned 'drink', a smile appeared on her own face, before she looked back to Naomi. "I'm totally not ditching you, and will be back in like thirty seconds max, but while I'm gone, figure out what we're going to do with you know who doing that totally not harmless thing with you know who, and how one of us needs to tell you know who," she said, attempting to be discrete, but probably doing so in a matter that would make it difficult for someone who actually knew who she was talking about, to even follow.

Yaya looked across the bar in mild boredom. It wasn't that the party wasn't impressive, it was, but honestly the main reason she came was for Ben and she had accomplished her goal. Of course the point was also to be a proper representative of the Alpha's which would usually be goal number one but again Ben. Her phone buzzed loudly on the counter of the bar and she picked it up quickly. A smile formed on her face as she saw a text from Naomi light the screen up. She had another text from Abby as well but she decided she would respond once she found Naomi.

She was going to step away from the bar to seek Naomi but a flash of bright red hair caught her attention and Audrey appeared in front of her. "I can't say that I was happy with you abandoning us earlier, but given that this was the finished product, I'll forgive you for it." She felt a good natured smile forming on her lips as she accepted Audrey's praise. Whether she wanted to admit it or not Audrey's approval was a bit important to her. Audrey was very accomplished as well as powerful and having her on your side was an important tool.

"Thanks, I was really proud of this look. Plus today was important so I figured why not go all the way out? It worked anyways Ben has forgiven me and we're dating again, just casually this time." She had multiple reasons for telling Audrey about Ben. For one thing she knew that Audrey would correct the stupid rumors of them being broken up for good to the rest of the Alphas but also because she was her friend, and in a rare show of friendship, she wanted to share something good that was going on in her life. Also she was tipsy, definitely tipsy.

She glanced at her phone again and then in the direction of the door. "Hey Naomi just got here, let's go greet her." She suggested as she headed in the direction of the front door. When she finally made it to Naomi she smirked at her and tilted her head to the side making her hair tumble to one side, "Well lookie what we have here." She said with a small friendly smile. She remembered Abby's text and she pulled her phone out quickly.

She responded to Abby with a quick message that said: Hey by the door with Naomi and Audrey. Once that sent she also sent a message to Ben saying: I'm by the front door come find me I want to dance once I'm done talking to Naomi and Audrey.

Watching as those he had surrounded himself with wander off in search of others, Archie sighs slightly to himself - bored - as he downs the rest of his drink. Noticing Eliana still standing with her Zeta girls, Archie moves a little closer to the group seeing more familiar faces than just Eliana's. Turning quickly to the bartender and motioning for the same again.

"Heya Arch, it's been a while." One girl purrs as Archie takes a seat by the group of Zetas. Recognising her as Kelsey - as sophomore, like him, who he had slept with a couple times while they were rushing. There was no denying she looked amazing, her seemingly recently dyed blue hair contrasted well against her black velvet dress. "Kels," Archie lets a small smirk slide onto his face as he reaches to move a stray strand of hair that had found itself stuck to her lipgloss, "I'm liking the blue; seems like you have a new colour every time I see you." As Archie hears a soft giggle escape her lips, he knows that he's probably in with her. "Thanks babe, I like to mix it up." She says with a wink, and if it had not been for Naomi catching Archie's eye, the Beta would probably have spent the rest of the night flirting with the Zeta, and eventually taking her home with him.

"Ah, sorry Kels, I gotta go," Archie attempts an apology, but it's sincerity falls flat, "Lots of important people here tonight." Of course, Archie wasn't lying, there were a number of Alumni here tonight, even Sigmas. Catching a glimpse of Cyrus talking to someone Archie assumed would be a past Sigma president, he sends the blond a quick wink before moving onto find Naomi, his drink still in hand. However before he gets to her, Archie's phone beeps with incoming messages, smirking as Maddox's, Archie is quick to reply.

Spotting his Big dancing with a girl who was unfamiliar to Archie, he shoots back an equally as teasing message.

To: Maddox
I learnt from the best. Is that girl a Theta? Sure hope you got Hudson's approval, I've got a particular Alpha in mind tonight.


Just a second ago, Naomi was standing on her own, and now as he looks up from his phone, Archie noticed she had been approached by Ya Ya. "This just isn't fair," Archie says as he approaches the two beauties, "All these guys out here are stuck with eights at best and I get to be with the two best looking girls in the place," Grinning at them both, Archie puts his charm on full force, "I guess I'm just lucky." Just as Archie is about to continue on with his half flirting, half joking conversation, he's interrupted by Ben walking over to the group.

Raising an eyebrow as Ben kisses Ya Ya's neck, Archie tries hard to keep himself from rolling his eyes as he watches the Kappas sickening display of affection. "Ben, good to see ya bud," Archie forces a smile onto his face, while knowing full well the pair were not friends in the slightest, "Nice to see you guys back together," Motioning to the pair stood in front of him, Archie continues on, "Here's hoping it actually works out this time." Of course, the words themselves were piercing, but Archie delivered them with such honesty that if Ben were to take offence to them, Archie would be able to feign innocence, promising the guy he didn't mean it as an insult. Even if he did.

"Well, lookie what we have here."

Naomi responded to Yaya's comment with a smirk before taking in the latter's attire with an admiring, almost amorous look in her eyes.
"Christ, Yaya. You look fucking amazing-"

"This just isn't fair."

She was cut off from making any more comment on the girl's undoubtedly glorious appearance by the roguish comments of one of the people Naomi had most been looking to see. He approached them with his typical swagger, dark curls somehow both tidy and in disarray, and warm eyes glimmering with their signature confidence.

"All these guys out here are stuck with eights at best and I get to be with the two best looking girls in the place. I guess I'm just lucky."

Naomi turned to him with a smile of amused cynicism, one brow raised as she met the Beta's eyes.

"Tell me, Archie, because I'm genuinely curious... Has that line ever worked?"

Once again her attention was cut away as a pair of strong arms looped their way around Yaya's waist, and a pair of lips pressed themselves to her neck. A bemused expression clouded Naomi's features as she recognized the owner of the arms, and she looked at the pair of them curiously.

Just as she was about to give the pair a friendly congratulations, Archie congratulated them himself.

Ben, good to see ya bud. Nice to see you guys back together."

Naomi didn't say anything, instead nodding in agreement, a pleasantly surprised smile on her lips. [i]Huh. Well, at least he's being civil. I was sure he was going to act like an total as-"

"Here's hoping it actually works out this time."

Her expression did not change in the slightest as she gave Archie a sharp elbow to the ribs, sly and unseen by the two lovebirds, and she carried on the conversation without hesitation.

"So... when did this happen?"

As Abby joined the group, Naomi felt a flush of pity for the girl, understanding what Abby must be feeling all too well. However, she knew better than to bring up the taxi conversation given the current company, so instead she shot Abby a cheerful thumbs up in response to her question and smirked flirtatiously at Yuda.

"And here I thought you said you weren't going to dress up cute for me."
