Swedish & English

Sexual Orientation
Heterosexual

Sexual History
He is not a virgin, and has been sexually involved with three girls.

Relationship History
He was in a relationship with a girl for a few months during middle school, but since he was so young at the time, he doesn't count it as being a real relationship. It literally consisted of nothing more than texting and holding hands once and acting like that was a huge deal. During the summer following freshman year, he dated a girl who had a house near his family's in the Hamptons, but it fizzled out once she moved back to Manhattan and he to California. He has only participated in hookups since then.

Weight
170 lbs

Skin Tone
Fair

Eyes
Blue

Hair
Blonde

Distinguishing Marks
N/A

Fashion Sense
Although he can and does dress up for formal events, his day-to-day attire tends to be pretty casual. He likes wearing jeans or slacks with t-shirts or button up shirts. He never looks to scruffy or poorly dressed, but he doesn't walk around wearing Moschino everyday either.

Overall Attractiveness
He was blessed with good genes. He was lucky enough to never have to worry about horrible acne, and his awkward stage went by pretty quickly, and if it means anything, he always seems to have more than a handful of girls hitting him up.


PERSONALITY
Image
Image

Personality
Regardless of whether you like him or not, it's hard to deny that Liam's social power is understandable. On the surface, he's the kind of person who's hard not to like. He's friendly and outgoing, the kind of person who can strike up a conversation with your dad about politics, or with your mom about some television show, and either know what he's talking about, or convince you that he does. He acts like he doesn't discriminate when it comes to socializing, so you might catch him waving at nerds in the hallways or chatting with hipsters... and on a surface level, it's true that he doesn't discriminate. If all you are is someone that he thinks of as an acquaintance, or not even that, and just a mere royal subject, then yeah, he's going to be friendly and charming. He's not dumb and knows that there's no use in burning bridges for no reasons, but the reason that he creates nicknames for people, that may seem endearing to some degree, is most likely because he doesn't care about you enough to actually remember your name. What works in his favor is that few people see past this charming, perfect Prince Charming, facade that he puts on. People see him as a great athlete, a leader, a dedicated student, and a social butterfly, and just accept that he's someone anyone would want to be friends with.

While it's necessary to accentuate on the fact that he might not be as genuine as he always acts, and that sometimes his friendliness is exaggerated, it is also important to note that it's not a complete act. He has true friends for just as many reasons as he has wannabes and followers, and his friends will likely tell you that he is a good friend. Oftentimes cocky, sometimes a bit entitled, and frequently a control-freak/know-it-all, but a good friend at heart. His problem tends to be that he values himself highly, and he refuses to let people take him down a notch. He's confident in his opinions and capabilities and sometimes struggles to know when it's time to let other people take the reigns on things, and just sit back. He definitely can come on strong, and sometimes obnoxiously so, if he thinks he's right about something or deserves something... or someone.

Priorities
Maybe he's one of the lucky few, but Liam is at a point in his life where his first priority is himself. He's lucky enough that he can get by in school with minimal effort, does well in sports, and has a strong social life, so he focuses on himself. His family is well off, therefore working is not a necessity for him, so as long as he's happy, his next priorities are doing well in school and excelling in his sports.

Life Philosophy
"We are what we repeatedly do. Greatness then, is not an act, but a habit"
― Aristotle


PAST
Image
Image

Hometown
Manhattan, NY

Upbringing
New York was his home for the first eleven years of his life. He was raised by his mother, actress Laura Linney, and CEO father, Mitch Nielsen, for the first nine of those, before the two separated in an amicable divorce. Liam liked New York, so when his parents insisted he move to California to live with his father when he was eleven, he was upset at first. New York was where all of his friends lived, he was growing accustomed to participating in certain sports teams there, and it was just where he was comfortable. No kid, especially at that age, wants to uproot themselves from everything that they knew. Luckily, Liam had a good relationship with his father, so that was not something that he dreaded. The move was spurred by the demanding acting schedule that Laura was being faced with, and the likelihood that Mitch would be able to care for him better while she was away, but years later, when her schedule slowed down, Liam opted not to move back. With his personality, it did not take him very long to create a new life for himself in California. He made friends, joined school and outside baseball and basketball teams, and grew to appreciate the more relaxed lifestyle that California had to offer. When he reached ninth grade and moved to the upper school's campus, he and his parents made the mutual decision that it would be best for him to board on campus. His father's work schedule was growing increasingly hectic and he was rarely home. Liam didn't mind the idea of boarding, and has been living on campus since. He's still a New Yorker at heart, but especially since his mother remarried and had another child, he has grown to terms with this being his real life, and he's not complaining about it.

Idol or Hero
His childhood idol, without a doubt, was G.I. Joe. As a kid, he was obsessed with the action figure and was set on going into the military when he turned eighteen because of his idolization over the toy. Things have changed since then, but he'll always have good ol' Joe to thank for making him a patriot.

Pets
None

Dreams
As a kid, he wanted to become a marine. He always wanted a dog, but was never allowed one.

Education
The Dalton School K-6
Crossroads Academy 7-12



PRESENT
Image
Summer Spent
He spent the first few weeks in Sweden, and then the rest of the summer in the Hamptons. He did return to California for a week in July for a friend's birthday party, but otherwise, was on the east coast.

Socioeconomic Status
Upper Class

Residence
Liam lives on campus because of his father's crazy work schedule. The man is rarely home, and therefore, the two agreed that it would make more sense for Liam to dorm at school. However, the place he calls home is located at: 1187 N Hillcrest Road, Beverly Hills, CA 90210
"One of the most exquisite estate offerings in the United States, covering a 2.5 acre promontory in Trousdale Estates, is the palatial former estate of comedian and philanthropist Danny Thomas. Surrounded by 360 degree views that sweep from downtown to the canyons and back, the 7 bedroom, 10 bath Villa embraces 18,000 square feet of palatial living space with grand scale. Built with the finest materials, this stately mansion features the most opulent dining and living rooms. Designer details include gold leaf crown moldings, hand woven carpets and European details. The private grounds showcase the sunny swimmers pool, dining and viewing pavilions perfect for entertaining and enjoying the city view below."

Transportation
2016 Range Rover SV


FAMILY
ImageImage
Mitch Nielsen | Father | Age: 48 | Occupation: CEO of Nielsen

Laura Linney | Mother | Age: 49 | Occupation: Actress

Marc Schauer | Step-Father | Age: 47 | Occupation: Real Estate Agent

Bennett Schaur | Half-Brother | Age: 3


FUTURE
ImageImage
Goals
In the next year, he wants to get accepted to as many of the colleges that he applies to as possible... and more short term than that, figure out which colleges he wants to apply to. He wants to have good seasons in both of the school sports that he plays, and over the summer, possibly take an awesome and memory-filled road trip with friends in between spending time in New York and preparing to move into whichever school he sets his heart on. He's not sure about what he wants to do college-major or career-wise. He's thinking business, just because he knows that with his father's company, he has an easy route into the business. Taking over Nielsen one day would be cool, although it's not necessarily a "dream"... He's a teenage boy, so family and marriage aren't exactly on his mind right now, but after college, he knows that he wants to adopt a dog and get an apartment of his own in Manhattan.


SCHOOL
Image
Grade
12 (has been attending the school since 7th grade)

Clique
Royals

Scholarship or not?
No

Extracurricular Activities
Liam is on the varsity baseball team and the varsity basketball team.

What Are You Looking Forward To?
He's most excited for that time of the year when college acceptance letters start rolling in. Unlike other students, he isn't dead-set on a particular school, but he knows that he's going to rejoice in the feeling of accomplishment when he starts getting those letters.

Best Subject?
He definitely puts the most effort into his physical education courses, and enjoys those periods more than any of his other classes. On a more academic level, he tends to do better in his history classes than any of the others.

Worst Subject?
Science is definitely not his strong suit.

So begins...

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

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

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

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
LIAM NIELSEN
Outfit
"No one is more qualified to shape the young minds of our
future than the King Bee."

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
Liam didn't hold any student government position, and he had no official reason to be leading a group of underclassmen boys around campus, giving them a tour, but he was anyway. One reason was that he had arrived on campus early, like really early, as in seven in the morning, before move-in had even started. His dad was flying to New York later that day for business and was only around in the early morning to help Liam move in, so his RA made an exception for him showing up early. Another reason was that he was Liam Nielsen, and well, when he was in the mood, he could be friendly. It was a friendliness that was laced with more of an incentive than to just make people feel at ease, though. It was a friendless that was motivated by his need to make sure that these boys knew that he was the top dog on campus, that he was the person that they needed to look up to and strive to be like. His behaviors didn't often lead him to be the ideal role model in a moral sense, but in a world based on popularity, he knew that he earned his spot at the top. He belonged there, and if he hadn't, the former King Bee wouldn't have chosen him as his successor without even considering anyone else.

The tour was ending in Chase Hall, the senior boys' dormitory, and the one that Liam insisted would be the one that they'd be able to sneak the most girls into, when it came their time to live there. That was, if they followed his advice, however. Throughout his tour, he had made sure to make it clear to these young minds that no girl was off limits to Liam Nielsen, and that with a little practice, they could be on the road to being as wanted as he was, too. "Listen, boys. You wanna know the key to success? Simplicity. Modesty. Acting like you're open to anything, when really the only thing you're open to is her legs opening. Girls like that. I don't know why. You know, I've got a lot of answers, but I don't know why. All I know is that when you try too hard, you look like a douche, and no girl on this planet is trying to hop into a bed with a douche. Why do you think Davenport over there has never been laid?" he said, motioning over towards a Prep boy who sat with a group of guys on a couch on the other side of the room. "He didn't get friend zoned. Nah, he got douche zoned. If you don't know how to wear a Cartier watch or a Burberry jacket without looking like you're trying to tell the world that your dad owns a Fortune 500 company, then stick to the fucking Nikes and shit like that. You're just embarrassing all of us, otherwise, and I'm not for that."

Liam's phone going off was the main reason for why he ended his spiel there for the moment, and an eager boy from the group in front of him perked up at the noise with a grin. "Is that one of your bitches?" he asked excitedly, with a laugh that made it obvious that he was proud of himself for the comment. Instead of the high five and hearty "hell yeah" that he was probably expecting, Liam looked at him in disgust, which he would later admit to himself was probably exaggerated. "Are you kidding me?" The words and the look seemed to wipe the smirk right off of the boy's face. "You don't call your girls bitches ever. I didn't think I had to go over rule number one with you boys, but I guess so. Rule number one is you respect your girls. A girl that lets you bang her in the back of her Porsche isn't a bitch." Nope, she's not a bitch. She's someone you'd call Deanna Devereux, AKA the best fuck you're gonna have in your life, boys. He wasn't in the business of name dropping, or else that thought would have been verbalized. "But I won't let you boys get ahead of yourselves anyway. It takes work to even get a girl to call your own, and you've gotta be prepared to start at the bottom if you wanna get the ones at the top." He had only skimmed through his messages before returning his attention to the boys, but now that his friends were on campus and hitting him up, he was done playing big brother to these freshman. "Now take what I said, and put it to use. The barbecue they're setting up? Go get good seats, and scout out the hottest girls you can find. Remember what I said though, you've gotta start at the bottom. Don't even waste your time trying for anyone who isn't a sophomore or a freshman." With that, he left the boy's in the lobby of Chase Hall and headed upstairs to where his dorm room was. As he walked up the stairs, Dytto, London, Katherine and William got texts from him. Dytto's was laced with sarcasm, even though he wasn't sure who she actually was talking about in reference to the girlfriend, and London's was one he expected to go unanswered, while he knew texting Kat was gutsy.

To: Dytto
Damn D, I thought that we were on the same page with not trying to take it that far. Don't tell me that I made you love sick with a summer's worth of charm. Thought you were stronger than that, but I guess I shouldn't have even expected you to be able to resist me. I just seem to have that effect on girls.

To: Katherine
My favorite girl... what's up, Kat? I get to take you as my date to this barbecue, or do I really have to work for you?

To: London
Not gonna stop by and say hello? Thought we could at least be civil, L

To: William
Wya dude

It didn't take long for him to reach his dormitory, and he unlocked the door and headed inside. Luckily, he had missed Fred's dad leaving by a few minutes, so he didn't have to deal with that, but on his way to his bedroom, he noticed Frederick's was open, and that the guy was inside. He could have just kept walking and went into his own room, but Liam was feeling friendly, and figured that there would be no harm in saying hello. He recognized the kid's face from some mutual classes in the years back but couldn't, for the life of him, remember his name. Rather than try to guess, or ask and make it obvious that he didn't know who he was, he decided to go with the classic nickname of "bro". After having gone to school with the kid for probably three years, if not more, it seemed rude to have to ask him what his name was. "Hey, bro. Hope you don't mind that I took Room B. You know who else we're dorming with?"

Frederick still could not believe that he was the only one here. Honestly, his other roommate could have moved in, but just went to go mingle at the barbeque. Fred was under strict orders to wait for Natalya before attempting to mingle at the schools planned event. That wasn't exactly what was said, but that is what he was going to do. And this game he was playing on his 3DS was keeping him from wanting to do anything else. Game Over "Dang it!" he exclaimed before restarting to the game. No matter how many times he plays, the 'computer' always best him when he is so close to the end. Eventually he was going to win. Not sure when. Freddy just got this game from his mother as a gift. He hasn't played enough to figure it out.

His phone chimed, distracting Fred for a moment. Game over A long sigh escaped him and he put the hand held down. Grabbing his iPhone, he saw that it was Dytto that decided it was good moment to cost him the game. But if she was here, they could play games now. Fred smiled and quickly responded.

To: Dytto
This text costed me a win. So I want food as a payment for this. And I'm on my way

He put the phone down and Liam was standing in his open door. Frederick sat up and smiled politely. Nice to that the King of Crossroads was not planning on completely ignoring Fred. "No big deal. And it's Nathan and Alex. I don't know where they are or if they are even on campus." Freddy said, actually having no idea about their other roommates. The nerd stood up and pocketed his phone. He took slow steps towards his door, waiting for Liam to move right or left. He needed to get to Dytto's room. Once he was out of the way, he made his way towards the front door. "I will see you around." With those final words, he left their dorm.

Frederick was probably never going to talk to Liam again. Not because he did not want too, but because A list tend to stick together. And just cause they lived together did not mean the King was obligated to talk to his subjects. Frederick got to Wright Hall and got up to the second floor. It took him a moment to remember which room was Dytto's. He found it and let himself in. "Are you ready to get crushed in every game you own?" He stated to let his presence be known. Getting to her room, Fred's smirk died a little. It became a soft smile when he saw Nathan. "Hey." Nathan was also intimidating like Liam, but in a completely different way.

LONDON WELLINGTON

"Thank you. All I want is for you to try, and I'm going to make sure that she does too." She felt like she was a version of Dytto's mom, trying to mediate a similar conflict from earlier. She appreciated Esper at least confirming that she would try since she knew that whenever she brought it up to Katherine, she was probably going to get an earful on how she had no reason to try, since she never did anything wrong, and everyone in the world was out to get her. "Oh my God, ew. Okay, I guess I should feel bad for you more than I should hate you for abandoning me, then. I would not go camping even if you offered me a million d--" She had begun to respond to Esperanza's explanation for why she had went MIA over the summer, when the girl blurted out "I like girls". To say that it came out of nowhere was an understatement, a complete understatement at that, and since it was so unexpected, it took a minute for London to actually realize what she was saying. It took more than a minute, actually. It took her sensing how the vibes in the room had changed, and noticing that Esperanza had a serious look on her face. One that was much more exposed and vulnerable than the tight and on guard look that she normally possessed. As she attempted to backtrack, London wanted to get sentimental and hug her, just because she didn't know what else to do, but she was still too caught off guard to even to that. She just stood frozen for a minute,, a perplexed and partially shocked look glued to her face. This situation was uncomfortable for more reasons than just one, but a major part of it for London was that she disliked situations that she didn't innately know how to handle. She liked being in control and having all of her emotions in check, and right now, she didn't know if she was supposed to be shocked or turned off or comforting or what.

London wasn't homophobic, and in the big picture, Esperanza being into girls didn't bother her. What bothered her, and left her feeling uneasy, was that she didn't understand why she was just finding this out now, when she had known Esper for years. It was incredibly selfish of London to be thinking of herself in a situation like this, but that was just how she worked. She felt like she deserved to know everything, and since Esper hadn't told her until now, it had to have been out of a lack of trust, and that in itself was unnerving. Needless to say, London's senior year was not starting out on the best note, and she had her two wonderful best friends to blame for that.

But now wasn't the time for self pity...

It took a little bit of reminding, but she eventually changed her expression to one where she was biting her bottom lip, and then a second later, forced her expression to soften. "Seriously, Esper? You 'shouldn't have said that'?" she said, repeating what the girl had said a minute before. "You're one of my best friends, of course you should have told me. You know I love you no matter what, but like, I'm going to be real with you, that was so random. I don't like not knowing what to say; you know that, but I really don't know what to say. You totally caught me off guard. Was that the preempt to you telling me that you have a girlfriend or something? Or wait, don't tell me. You've had a crush on Kat all along, and you were trying to play hard to get." Being playful felt like the best option to fall back on, partly because she really didn't know how to react to all of this, and why Esper was just saying this out of nowhere, and partly because getting all emotional and sentimental wasn't a territory that she enjoyed crossing into.

Only then did she look at her phone, and only then again, because this situation had turned into something she was uncomfortable with and didn't know how to handle, and looking at her phone provided her with a few seconds' worth of a distraction as she left both Joe and Liam's texts unanswered, and replied to a text about Jonnie leaving campus with a "kk". "I just heard that Jonnie's not coming back this year. Did he receive this news too, and you broke his heart enough for him to make up some story about his dad getting sick so that he didn't have to come back?" she said, continuing to try and be playful, though she was genuinely curious to see if there was some sort of correlation there.

The plane just landed. 11 hours of flying and William was barely going to make it to his dorm hall. This happens every year. He goes home the last day of school and then flies back the first day. He is always cutting it close with his plane trips. He blames his mother. She always wants to spend as much time with him as possible and keeping him in Westminster seems to be the only way to do so. Luckily to compensate for the late flight his mother got him a first class ticket. He was treated like royalty though not many people knew he was royal. Will preferred to not be treated like royalty when he was trying to be a student. It's annoying for people to bow or call him sir when he just wants to be referred too as Will.

William turned his iPhone 6 plus back on and then dropped it into his pocket. He went towards baggage claim and grabbed his three suitcases. Now he was to wait. His mother had also arranged a driver, who was supposed to take him to Crossroads. William's car was supposedly waiting for him on campus. "Mr. Richardson?" An old man with a neutral look on his face, waited for a response from the young man. Will smiled politely. "Yes. That's me. But call me Will." The man nodded and grabbed two of Will's bags. They headed towards the black BMW waiting right outside. Everything was piled into the car and Will took the front seat.

One his way towards the school his pone vibrated. He pulled it out and saw that it was Joe. One of his roommates. He is not that close with Joe, but he has no problem with him. Really Will has no problem with any of his roommates. At least not yet.

To: Joe
I am on my way. Also, I am making my friends help me move in.

There was another message. Liam. The King was at the school already. Will had known Liam was there early. Something about tours and freshman. Hopefully he was not scaring the new kids too much. They deserve to get scared on their own accord.

To: Liam
I am on my way. My plane landed just a few moments ago.

Putting the phone down, he thought about his other good friend Farrah. He has not really heard from her all summer. He knows the reason why since they tell each other everything. Practically family without any shared blood. He was rather interested in seeing the guy. Will has seen him around, but does not really know him.

To: Dancer
I am on my way. Do you want to help me move in?

He assumed the answer would be yes, but he would wait for an actual answer from her. Finally he got to the school and the driver stopped in front of Chase Hall. Will lead his driver up towards his room, ready to move in.

"Ooooohhh, watch out for the ghost!" Dytto practically squealed and laughed as the character Nate played as was practically lifted into the air by a dark aura on the flat screen television. Nate chuckled from his perch in one of her chairs and the brunette tipped over, falling backwards on the plush rug in laughter. "How?" He asked, disbelieving but still knowing. "How is horror and thriller still your favorite?" Dytto stuck her tongue out before digging her hand into the bag she snuck into her dorm room behind both Holly and her mother's backs. She popped two of the vodka-infused gummy bears into her mouth and chewed before responding very intelligently with a "Shut up!" Nathan only turned back to the screen just as the music from Farrah's room seemed to change to a much louder song.

Dytto glowered at the wall that separated them. Nathan only smirked discreetly, eyes focused solely on the screen as his mind wandered back to the text Farrah sent a few minutes ago. He would have loved to go over to her room, despite Dee being right beside him. But, for one, Dytto would question him relentlessly. Two, someone who wasn't his best friend would see him. And three...then would come the question of actually leaving...would he want to? Some part of him knew that they had not thought the entire secret relationship thing through. He had literally been able to have Farrah - a different side of her, mind you - to himself for an entire summer. To have been able to touch her, kiss her - and then not and have to pretend that he never had was...befuddling. It didn't help that he already wasn't used to such...consistency. The summer had been enough to cultivate an addiction and he could admit it - at least to himself - he was addicted.

"Maybe I should go talk to her," he said, sounding disinterested though actually posing the question made his heart race. For once, Dytto didn't turn those scrutinizing blues on him. Instead, she lay on her belly on the floor - since she obviously didn't know what sitting still meant - with her phone in her hands. "Wouldn't do that. Not of the mind to deal with veiled bitchiness...not if the tramp wants to keep her weave in place." Nate shot her an unimpressed glare and a protective remark about how every strand on Farrah's head was definitely real had to be shut down, causing him to clinch his jaw as he maneuvered his character, Waylon, back behind a broken desk so as not to be caught by the big creepy psychopath he was trapped in a locked-down asylum with. "Who knows? Maybe the summer made her more agreeable," he opined with a playful smirk and Dytto snorted as she responded to a few text messages. "Yeah, ok. That or some dick...and considering she hasn't been exactly deceitful in terms of letting everyone know how much D she's gotten, I seriously even doubt that that would help." It was a bit hypocritical, yes, and highly unnecessary for Dytto's commentary. She wouldn't go on to say that she and Farrah were particularly hostile towards one another. But she also couldn't find it in her to care and there honestly wasn't any lost love between them. Besides, why should Nate care anyway? He knew she didn't like the girl from the jump.

To: Esper
Idek. Said sumthing bout meeting. Imma text her

To: Cheer Bitch
Hey, cap! Pom poms unpacked or nah?

To: Liam
Sweetie, not in a mil yrs. Talking bout queenie. Kit Kat wanted 2 tell her bout us.

Both teens looked back at the wall separating Dytto's room from Farrah's as some old Cher Lloyd song came on and Dytto had half the mind to bang on the wall to make Farrah shut the fuck up when Nate slid to a stand. The sudden movement made Dytto narrow her eyes at him. "Yeah, I'll be right back." His face remained rather impassive, a thing Dytto hated about him but also picked up from her. It was frustrating when Nate decided to do that thing, just as much as it frustrated him when she did the exact same. So, Dytto shrugged and decided not to let it bother her, grabbing the remote for the game station for herself. "Your funeral, man," was the only thing she had to say on the matter just as Fred opened her door and entered. "Freddy!" Dytto exclaimed almost immediately before the first thing he said actually registered in my mind. "First of all, I have Cheeze-its and gummy bears out here, and some other shit in the kitchen. But two, you lost because you suck and you'll lose in whatever we play, let's be very clear about that, dude!" Nate chuckled lightly at their light banter before nodding to Fred once, the hint of a smile softening his face. "Wassup?" He barely waited to hear the rest of what either had to say before continuing as he headed for the door Fred just entered through, "Be right back." He closed the door behind him as he heard Dytto futilely warn him, "Don't say I ain't warned you." Nathan just smirked before carefully watching the front door as he headed to the bedroom he remembered Farrah telling him she would be in, knocked in the door twice, before opening it upon finding it was closed. He closed the door immediately after opening it, making sure to turn the lock before eyes taking in Farrah lost in dancing. As corny as it was, he liked the way the sun danced off the darkness of her hair, giving her a glow that couldn't have been better matched even if they were in the midst of a sunset. He smirked, leaning against the door before their eyes finally met. "Having fun?" He inquired playfully, arms crossed over his chest, relaxed.

"Let's keep an open mind here, alright?"
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
Liam nodded at Frederick when he gave two other names of people who they were living with. Nathan and Alex. Nathan was familiar enough because of Dytto. It wasn't like Liam was even close enough with Dytto to a point where he was meeting her friends or anything like that, because as he had made clear, he was just about the physical aspects of a relationship. Not the side where he had to go home and meet her parents or get her friends' approval. However, it didn't mean that he was ignorant to who she hung out with because it wasn't like he was solely interested in sex. That was all he wanted from her, but it didn't mean that he couldn't appreciate her personality and interests as well. Besides, as King Bee, Liam just "knew" a lot of things. Like what other guys his "conquests" hung out with. Nate just happened to be one of the many that Dytto seemed to be close with. "Later," he said as a farewell to Frederick, as the guy left the room. He still couldn't put his face to the actual name of Frederick, so until he had the time to ask someone about the kid's name, he was going to stick with "bro".

To: Dytto
Good, you scared me there. London's not gonna give af... but on that note, I need to ask you something. And you have to promise that you're not gonna say no without actually considering it, okay?

To: William
Sounds good I'll see you at the barbecue then

He only had two texts that needed to be responded to this time around, since London and Katherine both seemed to want to play hard to get. Which was cool with him. He could do hard to get. He was already sure that he would have London back in bed with him by the end of the month, and though Kat would be a little trickier, he wasn't all that worried. Since when had Liam wanted a girl, and not gotten her? Never. Not once. No one was out of his league, and he believed that if he kept being confident in that respect, that would never change. With that in mind, as he headed into his bedroom, he decided to text Farrah as well. Farrah was just a friend, but it wasn't because Liam thought he had been friend zoned or anything. He would never admit to that, even if it was the case, but it genuinely didn't seem to be so here. He and Farrah just got along in a friend way, and that was cool with him. He didn't need every girl vying for a second date with him. Sometimes, it was nice to just have a girl who he could go to for advice, or to grab a bite to eat with, and Farrah was that kind of girl. The fact that he didn't hold the same mentality as many, of Farrah being a bitch, was certainly helped due to the fact that they were both A-listers, however.

To: Farrah
Wow, Farrah. Thought I would've gotten a "hello" from you by now. You better find me at the barbecue. I went all summer without my favorite prep. Don't wanna continue that streak for another day.

LONDON WELLINGTON

London didn't take Esperanza's jump back to the defensive side personally. She knew that the girl was just as guarded as her, and especially since this topic was so personal, it made sense that she wanted to revert to her aggressive side to keep herself from unraveling any further. London could respect that. Hell, she preferred to be at the receiving end of it for the moment, over having to deal with a sobbing Esperanza. It was one of the few things that London just wasn't equipped for. She struggled dealing with her own emotions, and she was almost bad at functioning around other people who were getting emotional. She returned Esper's smile when it broke through her bitch face, but it was only there for a minute, because London seriously was not going to accept not knowing who this crush was on. Harmless, school girl crush or not, she deserved to know. It was just part of the best friend, girl code that London instilled in her friends, and she expected them to adhere to it. "I don't care if it's just a school girl crush," she countered, a more toned down smile still on her face. "Don't I deserve to know?" she added playfully, a knowingly cocky hint towards her status. "Look, I'll let you think about it while you feast away, but by the time classes get out later, I better have that name sent to my phone. It's just part of the best friend code, Esper! You know you were always the first to know about anything that happened between me and Liam." Before today, London had contemplated over whether or not she even wanted to speak that blonde's name ever again, but she had decided to go with the approach that she was completely indifferent towards him. That meant that she wasn't going to not acknowledge what had went on between them or how it ended, but she wasn't going to allow herself to associate any negative emotions with it. She needed to act like she wasn't sad or even angry, because she wanted to believe that Liam was never that important to her. That he had never held any sort of power over her. It wasn't true, but that was the plan for the year, or at least for however long she could manage to suppress her emotions.

With that playful remark left for Esper to mull over, London headed towards the door, but didn't fully exit before turning to her friend with a more serious expression. "And obviously, your secret is safe with me, but when you do decide to be more open about it whatever, with like... everyone, just know I have your back, okay? Always and forever." A lighthearted giggle and a wave of her pinky, as if she were pinky promising, followed that, before she gently closed Esperanza's door behind her. She wanted to take Katherine and Esperanza's lead and get ready for the barbecue, which was probably going to be starting any minute now, but she wanted to talk to Katherine. This day is definitely going to be more stressful than it should be... she thought as she stood outside of Katherine's door. She waited only a moment before going in, as she sent out a couple of text messages. A few went to a couple underclassmen who she demanded save her a good table outside for the barbecue and one went to Liam. She was tempted to respond to Joe... but then she decided it wasn't necessary. He was nice and all, but not to an extent where she wanted to have a pointless conversation via text with him.

To: Liam
I'm civil with everyone. You're not important enough to be an exception to that.

As she pushed open Katherine's room, she tried to perk up her mood. It would be necessary if she wanted any chance at combating the brunette's bad mood. "Oh my God, you're so annoying," she began, with a tone that suggested that she was just being dramatic. "I love your room, and your view is perfect. You're not moving out of here, Kat. Seriously. Get it out of your head, and stop letting it ruin your - and my - day, okay? Let's be happy and go have fun. Tomorrow we're going to go to the beach after class, and if you want, I'll drive us to Beverly Hills and we can stay at your place for the weekend, okay? This year is going to be so amazing and if you keep being so negative, you're going to ruin both of our vibes. Esper said that she has no issue with you and she wants to be friends, so can you at least try to be nice to her too?" She perched herself on the edge of Katherine's bed as she looked towards her hopefully.

Frederick shared Nathan's soft smile. He and Nathan were not best friends per say, but they were friendly towards each other. There was not need for them to hate each other. Frederick was always nice to everyone he met and Nathan seemed way nicer than what was on the surface. And they both shared a mutual friend. Dytto. So their friendliness was more than enough. Nathan left the room and Dytto's door was shut.

The nerd sat and grabbed the controller that he imagined was used by Nathan before he left. "I want the Cheeze-its." He told her. Freddy was not a big fan of snacks, but it was a long car ride from his home to Crossroads. After unpacking he played a hand held game. He does not really remember the last time he ate real food. Probably before he left. But this snack was highly necessary. Then he could have the feast of a king at the barbeque. "I have been practicing different gaming techniques all summer. There is no way you could beat me."

Frederick worked for a good portion of the summer. Unlike his good friends Natalya and Dytto, he did not have a lot of money. He gets buy by working over the summer and stocking up his bank account. His parents do send him money every now and then, but for the most part he is on his own. When he wasn't working, he was playing video games. He was getting better than usual. And he was determined to beat Dytto. "Hey. Where is Natalya?" he asked curiously. She had texted him earlier, but he has not seen or heard from her since.

Farrah had completely forgotten about her neighbors and most of her problems. That is usually what happens when she is dancing. It makes her feel better about life. It also makes her forget about issues that she should not be worried about. Like living next door to Dytto. Or Nathan and Esper being best friends with Dytto. Those are problems that she will just need to get over. Farrah was half expecting for the brunette to bang on the wall and tell her to shut up. Of course the dancer would not listen and probable instigate a fight. There was a chime and she took a quick break from the dancing. Message from Esper, Will, and Liam.

To: Esper
I think you are right. Anyway. I will see you at the barbeque?

To: Soccer
I am not helping you move in. Get Liam to do it. And I will see you at the barbeque.

To: Liam
The streak will end today. Gotta see my favorite royal.

Farrah had managed to keep in contact with William all summer. He is the only person that knows about her relationship status with Nathan. She trusted him to keep the secret to his grave. Or at least until she felt like it was okay to tell people. Honestly, Farrah has no idea when. The dancer turned the music up and returned to dancing her heart out. No one needs her right now so she does not plan on stopping anytime soon.

She was so lost in her dance that she did not even notice who walked in. It wasn't until they made eye contact that she realized Nathan actually came to her room. Farrah stopped dancing immediately and smiled brightly. She turned the music down just a tad. She did not want Dytto to hear them still. "I was." She responded, walking closer to him. "Did Miss Dee send you over to get me to turn my music down?" Farrah's voice was dripping with some hatred, but she kept her voice playful. It was her boyfriend's best friend after all. "Because if that is the case, I suddenly feel the urge to turn the volume all the way until my speaker burst."

The driver settled all of William's things in his room and then waited to be dismissed. The soon to be duke did not even noticed that the older man was just standing at the doorway. Will had decided to admire the view. He got the beach front which was nice. Maybe his friends would want to go to the beach this weekend. That would be a great get together. He will bring it up to Liam and see what he thinks. He might have plans already for a reunion party. Or maybe Farrah. He will just have to find out. "Sir?' Will turned around to see and impatient driver. "Oh. Thank you. I can take it from here." He said, a bright smile on his face. The driver nodded and swiftly exited. Before unpacking, William checked his phone.

To: Dancer
Fine. I will see you soon.

To: Liam
Or you could help me move in like a good friend would. Farrah told me to ask you since she does not feel obligate to help.

Setting the phone down, William started unpacking the simple things, like his clothes. His father had arranged for the extras to be here for him when he arrived. There was a tv that needed setting up and some other things that needed assembling. He did not feel like dealing with all of that by himself. He was hoping one of his friends would be kind of do that for him. Speaking of friends, Natalya came to mind.

They have been talking pretty much all summer and he started to like her, as a friend. He has not heard from her since he has landed. Will decided to shoot her a quick text message to make sure that she was okay.

To: Russian
Are you moved into Crossroads yet?

╰━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━╯

Nathan's smirk, and he would deny it vehemently if anyone other than the dance team co-captain called him on it, morphed into a much softer smile the second his eyes met with Farrah's. In the beginning of their relationship, you wouldn't have caught such an expression on his face. He had guarded himself in the beginning and yet, somehow, this one girl managed to soften the edges he swore were too rough to be smoothed out. It still freaked him out, to be quite honest. He was just good at not showing it until he was alone - away from Dytto and the others, away from her.

But he didn't have time to delve into such a depressing train of thought because Farrah's smile was radiant and she was within reach. Nathan didn't hesitate to place his hands on her trim waist, fingers clutching her curvy hips as he pulled his girlfriend - really should not get such a damn kick out of being able to say that in his head when he couldn't say it out loud - much closer. "Actually, Miss Smarty Pants, she told me not to even bother, for your information," he retorted, amused at the animosity between the two girls. It was actually unfounded and hardly had much of a cause. They were just two competitive artists who happened to both be close to him in different ways. Neither of them had much of an actual reason to hate each other so passionately and yet...here they all were. "I missed you," came the absolutely unguarded blurt that had heat rushing to Nate's cheeks the second the words fell from his mouth. But he couldn't bring himself to take them back because...well, one, he was a man of his words. Two, he wasn't about to ruin his own street cred - even in public to stutter over some...sappy dialogue.

What he could do, however - and did - was lean down and kiss the girl in his arms. Wasn't like anyone else was going to see him being the sap that he was. Not even your own best friend, a traitorous voice in his head chimed in, but he adamantly refused to acknowledge it.

Dytto's grin never faltered as Fred made himself comfortable in her room and laughing lightly at him, she pulled the box of Cheeze-its she had stashed on the second off-white chair and handed it to him. "Have at 'em!" As her friend proceeded to dig in, Dytto pulled her phone back out to her face, wondering only for a brief moment if Farrah was laying it on Nathan for interrupting her or if she was simply ignoring him since music was still playing. However, the texts she received both from Liam and Esperanza gave her pause. They both made her inquisitive and Dytto hated when she wasn't at least...partially in the know about things.

With Esperanza came, and inquisitiveness probably wasn't the correct term, an anxiety that Dytto could feel in her gut. A - and she hated the cliche phrase, but damn it if it didn't fit! - swam of butterflies were throwing a bitch fit in her stomach. Her flight-or-fight instincts on overdrive. Some part of her yearned to see those moments when Esperanza wasn't trying to put on some dramatic, abrasive show but smiling softer, being less harsh - being someone who honestly made Dytto smile. Like, really smile. The other part, the inquisitive, wondered about their future interactions. Now with Jon-Jon outta the way, she thought before instantly trying to find some part of her that regretted thinking it. But she couldn't. Shouldn't she feel bad that she thought one of the guys that she believed to be her friend had been in the way? Probably...but also, in the way of what, exactly? She had already decided - remained ever resolute - on not touching Esperanza. Not even looking at her too...too not like she's not supposed to. Right?

And with Liam came...wariness. Whenever they text one another, it was always teasing, sometimes taunting. Always - or at least, most of the time - flirty, seductive. Seeing who could get under the other's skin faster. It wasn't like Liam was a potential...anything more; Dytto hadn't even considered it and maybe yet needed to be added to that, but at the moment, she was very secure in admitting that she honestly was using him - as much as he was using her - for sex. Good sex. Great sex. Sex that had her more worn out than a cheer routine in the middle of a championship competition. Sex that had her ready to smoke a cigarette after a glass of wine and she neither drank wine nor smoked cigarettes. Barely even smoked weed - but the picture was clear. They provided each other pleasure. Which was why she had to eye her phone for a hot second, a suspicious eyebrow rose. What did this boy want from her now? And why did she have to actually consider whatever the fuck was on his mind, especially if such phrasing suggested she probably wasn't gonna be happy about it? Was it not enough that she rode him like a '63 only over 48 hours ago? The worst part of it was that she wouldn't even be surprised if it was a sexual thing, to be quite honest. It was her own fault, she eventually reasoned, as she typed out her responses before focusing on her current guest.

With great sexual prowess comes great burdens, after all.

To: Liam
As long as u dont ask 4 no 3sums w/ animals. #nevergonnahappen

To: Esper
Baby, wont u come my waaaaaaaaaayyyyy <3

She chuckled at Fred before chucking her long, red plaid vest off and onto the floor, before proceeding to crawl towards the game station on the television stand where she kept her collection of video games. "Talk is cheap, hot shot," she shot at Fred with a daring grin before gesturing towards the neat row of games. "Future loser's pick. And Nat should be on her way, but lemme check. Has to make you feel better after I whoop dat ass." It was all in good joking and she was always teasing when it came to Fred, even if she honestly thought he was the better gamer. He had skill and Dytto could admit it: she only had luck. Good luck, but luck nonetheless.

To: Black Widow
U here yet??

"Let's keep an open mind here, alright?"
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
It didn't take very long for Dytto to answer his text, but it felt like forever since he was staring at his phone. Even Will and Farah's texts popping up in between, and distracting him for a few seconds as he typed out a response didn't make the wait time for Dytto's text seem much shorter. London's was more important, but he didn't allow himself to acknowledge that, and opted to push her buttons instead. William and Farrah were both good friends, so their texts kept him engrossed for a second, but they didn't compare to what he wanted from Dytto, and it was probably more telling than coincidental that she wasn't too far off with her guess at what he wanted.

To: London
Bitter?

To: William
Yeah yeah alright I guess I'll do my good deed of the day. What room are you in?

To: Farrah
Smh, I'm hearing that you're not just lazy with me, but too lazy to even help Will move in? Got enough energy to run a dance team but not help out your friends? Wowwwww Farrah. Thought you would be better than that

To: Dytto
As long as your stepsister doesn't count as an animal, my request should be valid.

From what he knew of Dytto's relationship with Katherine, he guessed that she probably fell just as low as an animal on Dytto's list of potential threesome mates, but Liam wasn't going to take no as an answer on this one. He hadn't kept his desire to add Katherine to his list of conquests a secret from many of his guy friends, and he might have even told Dytto too, though he wasn't sure, since he was also aware that bringing that up would probably take a good shot at her libido, and whenever he was with her, they were usually too busy to actually talk much anyway. He doubted Kat would be better in bed than her stepsister, and he definitely wasn't looking to lose the latter to the former, but if anyone could somehow convince both of them to get into bed together, it was Liam. Or at least he thought so. And really, what guy could blame him for fantasizing over that? Katherine and Dytto were both beyond hot, and both cool. Them not being blood-related didn't make it weird or incestual, and call him weird for it, but knowing that the two of them didn't get along made him crave it even more. The fact that Kat just so happened to be London's best friend, and sleeping with her would somehow make him feel like he were making London jealous, helped in his desire there too.

To: Dytto
Come on, consider it. You already got to live out your fantasy by just getting to see me naked. Now let me FINALLY get an ounce of pleasure out of all of this.

He didn't let her reject the idea right away, at least not until after he sent that followup text. Knowing that William still wasn't on campus yet, he allowed himself a few more minutes of relaxation time in his room and collapsed onto his bed, kicking his shoes off and waiting for one of the three to answer.

Dytto told him to have at the snacks and Frederick immediately dived in. Putting the controller down, he grabbed the box of Cheeze-its and started eating. His hunger made the cheesy snack taste so much better than it really was. He was grateful to his friend for letting him devour anything he wants. There was a reason that he kept her around. Besides the fact that she was an amazing person in general. He was barely paying attention to what she was doing as he was stuffing his face with the cheesy goodness. "She really needs to be here to make you feel better after I destroy you."

Their competitive conversations is pretty much how they always talked to each other when it came to video games. It was friendly and completely innocent. Frederick rolled his eyes and glanced over all of the games she had. She had a lot. From that were a couple years old and some that had just come out. Clearly someone had recently gone video game shopping. Freddy put the snack box down and wiped his hands. "Lets start with something simple. Just to make sure that your skills didn't go to shit over the summer" He teased. "Call of Duty. World at War."

He waited silently for a moment as Dytto set up the game. "Hey did you hear that Jonnie isn't coming to school this year?" He did not think it was a much a huge deal, but he was just passing along rumors he has heard.

Farrah's smile did not falter as she allowed the sarcasm to drip from her speech. She loved the fact that she could be this sarcastic with Nathan and continue to feel this happy around him. He brought her so much joy that she felt like her heart was going to explode. But she was keeping herself together, like Nate was. Besides the fact that they were grinning at each other like a couple of hyena's. She allowed for her boyfriend to pull her close, happy to be back in his arms. Slowly, she loosely wrapped her arms around his neck as he told her what Dytto said.

At least she knew better than to send someone to get Farrah to do anything. It would never end well for Dytto or whoever she was sending. If the dancer wanted to blast loud music then she would. The only way Dytto could ever do anything about it would be to storm in here and smash her speakers. But if that happened, Farrah would end her life. Nathan quickly pulled her from her thoughts with an 'I miss you'. It was so sweet sounding. Any hostility she had a moment ago, quickly disappeared.

No one would ever know, how they truly were when they were alone like this. No one else mattered. They could be sappy, sarcastic, loving, and kind. There is not one person she could ever imagine be this way for. Which is a scary thought. Farrah did not date much. This was her first real boyfriend and she already could not get enough of him. Before she could respond to Nathan, he did what most boyfriends would do when they were alone with their girlfriends. There kiss was not long, but it meant everything.

The dancer pulled away and smiled brightly. "I missed you too, Sap." Though she was teasing, she meant it. She was used to spending most of her time with him, but just moving in alone without seeing him once was saddening. "How much longer do you think we have until the witch next door thinks I killed you?" she asked. She was trying to keep Dytto's name calling down to a minimum for the sake of Nathan, but the next time she had to mention her Farrah will not be as nice.

William got most of his clothes put away, but he was not in the mood to do much else. Farrah had not responded to his text, so he was assuming that she was really busy. Or just did not feel like doing any manual labor. He completely understood and was not going to push for help. Liam on the other hand did not have much of a choice. It was a friends duty to help. IT Liam hadn't moved in so early this morning, Will would have helped him as well. Speak of the devil, it seems like the King does not mind doing some heavy lifting.

To: Liam
I am in Dorm 2B and in Room C

Setting his phone back down, he laid on his bed. It was quite comfortable for a cheap mattress. Crossroads might have a lot of money, but it mostly goes towards academics and extracurriculars. Granted, Liam had been use to sleeping in a specially made mattress back in Westminster. Everything felt cheap to him. He was going to make the most of it. Consistently, each year has just gotten better. He wanted this year to go out with a bang. He was not exactly sure how it was going to happen, but he was more than willing to figure it out.

His mind wandered to London. Not really sure why, but he had not heard much from her either. He wanted to say hi and let her know of his arrival. He is aware that Liam and London are not friends at the moment, but Will had grown to like her. He could not just toss her aside because of the fall out between her and his best friend. So far he has managed to keep from getting in the middle of any fights they might have. The last thing he wants to do is have to pick sides and lose a friend. A King and Queen at war is not good for his mentality or for the kingdom they are supposed to be running. Royal 101.

To: London
Hello Queen. It has been a while since I have heard from you. Are you all moved in?

Nathan only grinned down at Farrah's face when their lips parted, tucking a few strands of hair behind her left ear gently. He had to learn to ignore the faces she made whenever Dytto somehow made her way into their conversation. It was always an awkward situation to be placed in, which was the other reason why he was perfectly fine with keeping them a secret for just a bit longer. Dytto might actually kill him.

The other dancer was usually much chiller than that and her carefree, don't-give-an-absolute-fuck-about-anything-that'll-cause-me-drama attitude was renown in their group. Sure, she liked hearing drama from time to time, but if Dytto could help it, she would remove herself from it or dispel it from her mind as quickly as she could so as not to linger on the issue. It was unhealthy just as much as it was healthy, but he doubted she would handle the situation well. Nate remembered their earlier years at Crossroads, Dytto's misery. It had fostered a bit of hatred towards anyone who was involved and, despite the fact that she admitted that Farrah had never touched her nor even acknowledged her back then, her fellow dancer was hated. The abhorrence was strong with this one and it should have been enough to keep Nathan on the frenemies-with-benefits track like he was supposed to. But it gives you such a thrill, should not still be the unspoken truth.

"Probably not long," he answered honestly just in time for his phone to vibrate in his back pocket. Sighing heavily and thinking it was probably Dytto since she had kept going back to her phone all morning back when she helped him check-in, he pulled it out only to see Nat's text. It made him roll his eyes and chuckle quietly before meeting Farrah's eyes once more. "Well. Duty calls. Apparently, I gotta go. Dee's other half just got here," he said and kissed Farrah's forehead gently. He turned to at least reach for the door when he heard heels stomp excited into the apartment from the other side, willing himself to be silent and not move. "Shit," he swore as he heard Natalya's unnecessarily loud and excited voice and her bang against Dytto's door. He waited until he heard those same heels leave just as quickly as they came before glancing over his shoulder at Farrah, "I'll text you after class.", and then hurried out, closing the door quietly behind him.

Dytto was cracking up at Fred's quick retort, moving to peruse through her collection for Fred's enjoyment but also to get out her second controller. She had earlier only pulled out one game controllers since Outlast was only a one-person game. It made her briefly made her wonder if the creators would change the interface to accommodate more than one, but she quickly shot that down. Having one player was what made it a heart-racing experience. "Uh huh, talk your shit, Gains," she said distractedly and finally found her second controller in the lower cabinet of her television stand. Her phone vibrated on the rug, but she chose to ignore it at the moment. Especially if it was Liam.

"You say something simple and chose Call of Duty?" She exclaimed, dramatizing her skepticism before tsking and shaking her head. "You must really want this ass-whooping." Dytto sorted back through the disk boxes as she had seen the game a second ago and then let out a small exclamation upon finding it again. As she proceeded to restart her game station's system and exchanging the disks, the sound of Fred digging his hand into the paper lined box ceased and his next question came. "Yeah, I did. I didn't kn - " Only a second later and there was a loud banging on her door, which for a second reminded Dytto of Nathan (despite knowing that he knew he could easily walk into her room at any given moment), and then Natalya's voice. Dytto whipped her head in the direction of the door and she rolled her eyes as Natalya decided to rush her. Well, them, since she had also been looking for Fred as well earlier. "This bitch...always tryna' give people heart attacks," she grumbled without actually meaning a thing by it.

Dytto quickly rose to her feet, raking her fingers through her straightened hair and fixing her snapback so that it was no longer backwards on her head. She had flipped it in the middle of watching Nate play - who, by the way, was taking too damn long and she wouldn't be surprised if Farrah had pissed him while acquiescing to his demands for quieter music since there was literally silence from the wall now. As she slipped her feet back into her black Aquazurra sandals (they were heels, for some reason, most people called them sandals and Dytto really didn't feel like arguing about it) and picked up her red vest, she also grabbed her phone and glanced at Fred. "Rain check on your ass kicking. We've been summoned," she told him on a playful wink and pulled her red vest back on, allowing it to fall freely down to her ankles. She glanced back down at her phone to see messages from Liam, Esperanza and Katherine. Two made her roll her eyes; only one made her smile. And aren't you turning into a sappy ass bitch, some part of her brain taunted and Dytto chose to ignore it, grabbed a hold of Fred's arm while reaching for her set of dorm keys, and then heading out of her dorm to see Nate standing in the hallway. Her head tilted to the side for a moment before Dytto closed her door behind them, locking it.

"You just leaving her room," she questioned sardonically, suspiciously, as she continued to walk past him so that Nate and Fred could follow. A scent hit her as she passed him and Dytto wrinkled her nose ponderingly "No, just coming back from the bathroom," he lied without falter, nodding to Fred again, and proceeded to follow the brunette as she appeared to be typing on her cell. "Smelling like you've been dumped in a trashcan filled with nothing but perfume?" Was her next inquiry and not one to usually stumble at the face of Dytto's quick fire questions, Nate responded with "Not my fault that apparently, you live with a lot of girls who flooded your damn bathroom with this shit." His Brooklyn accent became much clearer in his defense of himself and Nate didn't have to see Dytto's face to know that she either didn't trust him or didn't care. So, he turned his attention to Fred. "What's up with her? You kick her ass or something?" Dytto hated losing, but she also wasn't taking Nathan's bait either. And he still couldn't see her face. Her hair fell like a curtain of chestnut silk as she punched out a few responses on her phone, her heels click-clacking against the white linoleum floor.

To: Esper
Can't wait

To: Liam
1, ew. 2, ew. And 3, the difference between animals & Kat is dat 1 of dem is cute. And it damn sure ain't her

To: Katherine
Try again

It didn't take long to reach the elevator and when she did, a small smirk was on Dytto's face because she was taking in both her best friend and Esper. Though, her gaze was mostly on the cheerleader and Dytto ran her fingers through her hair, twisting her fingers on a few strands as she eyed Esperanza surreptitiously. After all, she said she wouldn't touch. Said nothing about not looking. Nate had to laugh to himself, just a bit and quietly, at that. He knew all about Dytto's little "innocent" crush on Esperanza and always found it interesting with the two interacted. Dytto was good at being cool and detached, just not when this one was around. "This better be a bomb ass present for you to be banging on people's doors like you've lost your mind," Dytto stated distractedly, flitting her gaze to Natalya with a warm smile, before her gaze returned to Esperanza. Who honestly shouldn't show that much long. Like, honestly - that's not fair. How was Dytto not supposed to envision getting her hands all over that smooth, tanned, untouchable skin. Honestly, unfair and unjust torture. "Hey, gorgeous. Don't you look all tanned and glorious!" She greeted her, dragging her eyes up to meet Esperanza's, her tongue peeking out to wet her bottom lip. Nate had to cough into his fist to avoid a snicker.

Frederick was more than ready to kick Dytto's ass. He had been practicing all summer and he had new techniques that he knows that she has never seen before. He kept a good grip on the controller, excited to play with one of his favorite second players. He knew he was going to enjoy this as much as she was. Just then his phone buzzed as well as Dytto's. But her phone was always buzzing. People were always trying to get in contact with Miss Dee. Checking the message, he saw that Natalya was making sure that Fred was with Nate and Dytto. Well Nathan had just walked out for reasons Fred was not aware of.

Dytto was finally going to answer his question about Jonnie's absense, but that was when the Russian thought it would be best bang on the door and let herself in. Excitedly exclaiming that the two of them needed to join her downstairs. The gamer rolled his eyes and set the controller down. Dytto called for a reign check which caused him to laugh. "You weren't ready for this ass whopping anyway." he said, throwing back her own competitive remark.

They left the bedroom and Nathan rejoined him. Frederick smiled. Dytto on the other hand immediately started interrogating his whereabouts. Fred did not see the big deal, but he was not going to be in the middle of his conversation. Nathan did not seem to get that and tied her crabbiness to getting beaten in a game. Frederick laughed a little. "Didn't get the chance. Natalya came running in and summoned both of us."

The three of them made it downstairs where a lot of people were starting to gather. That was when Frederick started to understand what was going on. This was consistent every year. Natalya buys all her friends expensive gifts and expects no payment in return. "You interrupted Dytto's ass kicking, Nat. This has to be good." he said, with a charming smile and humor in his tone.

Farrah thought they would have much longer than what they were given. As soon as Nathan spoke, his phone went off. The dancer was not pleased to hear that her boyfriend was being dragged away by the dumb Russian blonde. She kept that to herself. Nathan happened to be friends with that girl and upsetting him with her rude comment was not in the plan. With a kiss to her forehead, he pulled away and turned to leave. But the Russian barged in the dorm and obviously went to collect the witch next door. When Nathan said it was safe, he said his farewell and stepped out. Farrah gave a half-hearted wave and turned to sit on her bed.

She took hold of her phone and released that Esper and Liam both messaged her. Esperanza's text worried the dancer. There was no need for her best friend to find her anyone. Farrah was already dating someone, but Esper did not know that. A sigh escaped her. This secret relationship was going to be much harder than anticipated.

To: Esper Darling
I don't have time for boyfriends. We are co captains in our senior year. I would much rather focus on ending up as national championships than someone's girl

That was a lie. If she could figure out a way to spend as much time with Nathan as she spent dancing then she would.

To: Liam
Oh please. Don't act like the Goldon Boy. Where was the extended invitation to help me move in, Mr. 'I was here at 7 in the morning'

Shaking her head in amusement, she laid on her bed. She just wanted to kill some time. She did not want to see everyone gathered around some tattooed chick, accepting gifts. Farrah played some music and just stayed in her bed.

William was happy for some help. Liam was not here yet, but there was no rush. There was still and hour or two to kill before everyone needed to be mingling outside at the barbeque. Will was rather excited to reunite with his friends there. He had missed hem. Being in England for his entire summer with no opportunities to see anyone is rather saddening. But he was back in the United States ready to make this the best year yet. His phone buzzed and it was from Miss Russia. He smiled and glanced over it before laughing.

Every time she wanted him to do anything she uses the queen against him. Will has only met the Queen once. It does not work on him. But he will go to the parking lot to see what was so important. There was no harm in getting some fresh air and seeing his friends.

To: Russian
This has to be good, Nat. I had to hang up on the Queen

No harm in going along with the joke. He needed to send Liam a quick text so that he knew not to come to his dorm.

To: Liam
There has been a change of plans. I will just see you at the barbeque

Grabbing his keys, he left his room and headed downstairs. On his way down, he received a message from London. He was glad that she was still nice to him, despite his friendship with Liam. He would be sad to lose one of his other favorite royal.

To: London
My stuff is in my room, if that is what you mean.

Moving in was still a slow process he would have to get back to after dealing with Natalya. When he got outside, he saw that he was clearly not the only person out there. Nat must have something big planned. He went closer to the crowd, smiling politely at some of the faces he recognized.

When Will texted him back, Liam rolled his eyes, feigning annoyance that really had no place there. He was still on his bed, relaxing. It wasn't like he had jumped out of bed to prepare to help his friend move in, but he still wanted to pretend that he had a right to feel annoyed at plans being cancelled, even if he wasn't necessarily excited for them in the first place. Instead of bringing down the mood and being petty, though, he sent a normal text back to Will. The fact that Dytto had texted him shortly after made it easier to brush over paying too much attention to Will, too.

To: William
Alright cool

To: Dytto
I'll take that as a maybe then? Come on, lmk what I have to do to make it a yes, and you know I'll do it. Ur telling me that an ultra sexy guy with two hot feuding sisters in bed doesn't sound hot af to you? YOU'RE the weird one if that's true.

He knew that his text to Dytto placed him in that same pretentiously arrogant category that he had warned the freshman boys not to fall into, but he didn't care, since it was Dytto who he was texting. He put up with her sass, and she put up with his. It was how their friendship worked, with each purposely pushing the other's buttons. The fact that he found her sass to be a turn on helped in making it all work, that was for sure.

Since Will didn't need his help, Liam sent a text to a few of his fellow royals, and some jocks from the baseball team, and told them to meet him in the lobby of Chase. Five minutes later, he was downstairs, and the group of them headed out to the barbecue. Classes would be starting soon enough, and Will wanted to enjoy what felt like the last hour of summer before it was time to buckle down and work again. Doing that with his boys would be fun, but it would be a lie to say that his eyes weren't skimming the crowd, as they neared the barbecue, for either London, Katherine, or Dytto. They seemed like his top three choices for senior year, and he definitely wasn't going to complain about that. As they got to the tables lined with food, Liam saw one of many familiar faces, but this was one who he was close enough to to actually know his name, and care about his existence (at least to an extent). "Joe," he said, greeting the boy with a hard pat on the shoulder. "Good to see you, bro. Summer treated you well?" Though he and Joe weren't very close, or even really friends, Will knew that it was important to be friendly to most people. It allowed him to maintain a good reputation, even if it wasn't always a genuine one.

"Now, you see what you've done," Nathan demanded, though his tone was still as lax and seemingly unbothered as ever. Once the barbecue's beginning was announced, mostly anyone who had either been involved in or witnessed Natalya's "gift-bearing ritual" went their separate ways. Most, considering they were students who would obviously go where there was free food, went to the barbecue in lieu of the long line that was sure to form. Others, like the staff members Natalya had brought on to campus or simply students who would not be bothered by interactions with classmates they could do without, just left campus. Nate gestured to Dytto, who seemed to be practically vibrating in the driver's seat of her new Lamborghini. "She's like the freakin' Energy Bunny now!"

"Bitch, don't kill my vibe," Dytto sang, hands on the wheel as she debated whether or not she would take the car for a spin. As much as she liked barbecues and she always caved to the allure of honey barbecue ribs, or even a bomb burger, she could always go pick something up. Not because she didn't like the school's food, but because she honestly loved driving. The simple truth of the matter was that she had been debating whether or not she was going to allow Bernard to purchase her another vehicle. He had said something about wanting both her and Katherine to have cars that they could share or simply have back-ups - whatever reason he came up with the idea that any one person needed more than one car still alluded her, but she wasn't going to deny a good vehicle - on any given day. Now, she didn't have to worry about feeling bad for having him spend money on her. Since... well, someone else beat him to it. Not to mention it had a wicked fucking paint job that totally did not make her jump up and down like a damn loon. Because, Dytto would never do that, absolutely not. Too cool for that.

"But still, as much as I love it, you know I'm gonna have to send this home. Can't take up two parking spaces," Dytto acknowledged ruefully to her best friends, climbing out of the Lamborghini and closed the door behind her in favor of leaning back against. It took her a second later to turn a look to Nathan as she said, "And I like how you're talking shit considering you're still leaning against that thing like you're actually Logan. All you need is a cigar and you'll have it made." Not to mention the tragic backstory, she almost quipped, but then again, he already did. Which was why Dytto kept her damn mouth shut. Either Nate didn't notice her almost slip or didn't care enough at the moment because he grinned at her a second later. "Says the girl who's all heart eyes over a damn car and she barely even likes anything less than an SUV." She only stuck her tongue out at him and he stayed propped up against his new bike, a bit happier than he was going to admit to either of his friends.

"But also, how the hell is anyone supposed to get you a present after this?" Nate inquired with a raised brow, standing straight when he noticed more students heading in the direction of the barbecue. Dytto hummed in agreement. "Yeah, some of us don't have money coming out of our asses here," she complained, wincing in faux reproach at the look Nathan tossed her. "Says the girl with the thousand dollar television," he reminded her. "Not my money." Nathan only rolled his eyes before turning his attention solely on Natalya. He did, though, bite out at a "Shut up!" Dytto pouted and muttered, "Okay, okay," and pulled out her phone to see messages from her friends, but also to figure out where Fred had disappeared to since she had lost him in her earlier excitement. Esperanza too, but Dytto was pretty sure she'd catch that eye candy back at the barbecue.

To: Liam
The answer is no. U want a 3some? Try finding sum1 I actually want. Never her. Not even I was drunk

To: Joe
B there soon

To: Fred
Where u go?

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

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

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

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

To: Ellie
On my way!

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

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

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

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

LONDON WELLINGTON

"I am seriously craving a good burger right now, so let's go for a run later, kay? You know it just as well as I do that that's one of the major cons of California, over New York. In New York, you have all fall and winter to let your summer body fall apart, and then you still have all spring to build it back up, but we have to stay in shape year round here."[/color] She caught herself after that, and quickly corrected herself. "Well I have to stay in shape year round. You, on the other hand, need to make sure this year you actually keep some meat on your bones. I really hope you're over that phase, Kat,"[/color] she said, the last sentence coming with an included knowing glance at her friend. When London had found out about Katherine's eating disorder a couple of years back, she had treated it in a similar manner as Esperanza's coming out. It was something that she was uncomfortable with, because she wasn't well-versed in being incredibly supportive in a lovey-dovey way. She wasn't the kind of friend who could send Katherine text messages every morning to remind her to eat a healthy breakfast, or tell her that she was beautiful the way she was. She just didn't function that way, no matter how close she was with the person. She was more comfortable with shooting Katherine glares when she saw her passing up meals and sternly telling her that she wasn't going to stand to spend senior year with her best friend locked up in some mental institution. Luckily, or at least from what London had been told, Kat's summer had went well and she was on the right track to recovery. The eating disorder had been "cured" and Katherine would be the present, exuberant and vibrant girl that London loved. That was the plan, at least.

The girls had left Katherine's dormitory a few minutes earlier, and were now arriving at the barbecue. Even from a distance, the smell of the fresh barbecue food made London's mouth water. As she had said, she tried to be healthy about what she ate because she did care about maintaining her figure, but she wasn't the type of person who obsessed over that type of stuff. Definitely not to the extent where she could turn down food that fit her cravings, every now and again. Though London knew that being at the top of the social pyramid came with its responsibilities, right now, she really just wanted to focus on her friends and food, so when a couple of sophomores approached her with eager smiles on their faces, it took a bit of effort to hide her dwindling patience. "Hi London," the first girl chirped. London knew her name to be Jenna, only because she was one of the girls who had seemed to only join the yoga club the year before, to pester her. Whenever they crossed paths, it seemed like this girl had a million questions about what London had done the weekend before, what her plans for the next weekend were, what color nail polish she was wearing, and where London recommended she get a dress for an upcoming gala. It was cute at first, and even London could admit that having followers was sometimes a nice boost to her ego, but after a while, the girl had become nothing short of annoying. Her little posse of friends, whose three names were unknown to London, were just as annoying. "That club you were at a few weeks ago looked so fun! Where were you? I was, like, totally jealous," Jenna continued, quickening her pace to keep up with London, who had continued walking even after the girl's greeting. "I'm not sure," London mulled, uninterestedly. She knew what club the girl was referring to, because she had left several comments under the Instagram photo London had posted of herself there, asking this same question. And like those comments, London wasn't going to give an answer to this question either. "We'll talk to you girls later," she then added, slightly abruptly, as she decided that she wanted to lose the girls before they killed her vibe. Kat's brattiness and Esper's testiness had already taken a toll on it, and she wasn't going to let it worsen any more. Not even after seeing Liam standing beside the burgers. Nope, he wasn't that important, and that reassurance made her want to approach that area even faster, especially after seeing William, Farrah and Joe, three people who could be considered friends, standing beside him.

"Excuse me," she said, a curt and clearly feigned smile on her face as she nudged Liam just enough to have access to the burgers for long enough to put one on her plate. She had forced Kat to take a plate as well, and even though she knew the girl would probably complain later on, she placed a burger onto her plate, too. "Farrah, you should totally come sit with Kat and I," London said, in a slightly unusual act of welcoming someone who wasn't part of her clique, into it. Farrah was an A-lister, and that made her familiar territory, plus, she was going to be her roommate, so London decided that it was perfectly acceptable. Plus, she didn't want to just sit with Katherine, and she had spotted Esperanza a moment before, but with Kat's stepsister and Natalya, so she didn't want to deal with insisting that Esper sit with them, and have that lead to two people Kat despised joining as well.

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

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

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

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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