OVERALL STYLE: Matt doesn't care much for fashion. His closet is full of mostly simple jeans, v-necks, button-up and jacket. Even though his style of dress is simple its not like he doesn't care about his appearance. His simple style seems to simply highlight his 'manly' appearance that many girls around him find attractive. The only time he strays from his easy carefree style is during formal presentation of his projects or dinners at home with his dad and stepmom.

Matt has always had a hard time expressing serious emotions. After years of living with a father who balked at the idea of emotions Matt has become as closed off as they come. It was especially bad before his dad remarried. Now while he still sucks at emotions generally he has his stepmom and brother,Izzy. Two people he feels comfortable enough talk to.His stepmom has always said he can be the sweetest guy if he'd only let himself.

For someone so popular Matt really doesn't talk much. Honestly it's a miracle anyone considers him a boy wonder. I’m not saying Matt isn’t nice. What I’m saying is that often if you look closely you could tell he is faking it. He doesn’t want to always smile and be popular all he wants to do is make movies/videos and music.

Most people only know fake Matt and are okay with it. They only know the Matt created by his desperate need to please his father. Izzy is the only one to ever stick around and truly understand what he is feeling. Because of this Izzy is the only one that knows more than grumpy/ fake smiles Matt. He has seen Matt cry and crumb. Seen him act a fool while running lines with the boy. He has seen a softness and playful no one else had ever seen. It’s a shame than all those moments were either caused by or ruined by Matt’s dad.

“He fixes cars, He plays Guitar and he can sing”

Matt was ALLOWED to learn how to play music and such if he also kept to cars and sports. That being said his passion was and always will be his music and videography. He has won numerous awards for those two but his dad never paid this much mind. Matt has composed numerous songs and videos that highlight thoughts and feelings he has never told anyone about having.

After his mom died when Matt was 5 he was left living with his dad. His father wasn’t necessarily a bad man he just was a narrow minded and closed off. Even more so after the death of his wife. Matt spent much of his childhood trying to please his father. He’d often hide things he was interested in if he had heard his father bad mouth that thing. All Matt wanted was to make his father proud but he always seemed to fall short.

Then at the age of 11 Matt dad remarried and with that he got a new mom and brother. These two people were his saving grace in Matts life. Izzy quickly became more than his brother but his best friend. While his new stepmom gave him true familial love he had been craving. They were much more open and accepting leading Matt to start showing interests in things that his father used to baulk at. That being said there were some things that Matt thought and felt but never bothered to voice, because he knew that even with his new family Matt’s dad wasn’t really all that accepting.

So begins...

”Five minutes, guys!”

Alarmed eyes turn to Sammy at the sound of the stage hand’s voice, a lock of auburn falling over the frightened boy’s forehead. ”Oh god…” It happens each time the dance team has a big performance. The youngest of the members, Jason, can’t seem to fight off his stage fright. Setting aside his water bottle, Sammy’s slender legs take him toward the boy. He settles on the floor beside him, all too familiar with the sight both as the team captain as well as a close friend. ”Deep breaths, Jay. It’ll be okay.” his hands rests on the younger’s knee, eyes focused on his face. Sammy can see sweat already beginning to break, a result of riled nerves.

”Easy for you to say, you probably danced in your mom’s womb.” Sammy can’t help but crack a smile, prompting Jason to do the same. ”Hey…” Sammy’s gaze searches for the other’s. Though avoided, eventually the younger dancer caves, his deep browns meeting Sammy’s own. ”You’re going to kill it out there...you always do.”

”Two minutes!” the stage hand announces again, interrupting whatever Jason’s next sentence would have been. Sammy gently pats the boy’s leg before getting to his feet, eyes taking note of every team member. Almost everyone is accounted for, except… ”Has anyone seen Jazz?” the dancer’s eyes scan the surroundings for his co-captain until he finally spots the head of black locks a few feet down. He quickly works his way through the dancers until he reaches her, excitement painted on his features. ”Ready?”

”You’ll enjoy it, I promise!” Isaiah exclaimed excited as he attempted to work his way through the crowd in hopes of scoring a good seat. Every so often he would glance back at his step brother to make sure he hadn’t been ditched. It was no secret that Izzy wanted to be here much more than his brother Matt did, but the blonde wouldn’t enjoy it as much were he to come by himself. Granted, he had friends that he could have invited, but Matt was more than a step brother. He had become Isaiah’s best friend, and as such, Izzy wanted to share many things with him. One of them being his crush on one of the dance team’s co-captains, ”Jazz and her team are amazing!” he continued to gush.

Isaiah had mentioned his crush to Matt several times before, however the latter had yet to see or meet her. Of course because of this the blonde had concluded that it was only fair that he introduce the two. Who knows? Maybe Matt would find himself smitten by someone on the dance team as well. More so than just an opportunity to ramble on about Jasmine, Izzy also took this as an opportunity to broaden Matt’s view on the world. It may be true that he was one of the most popular guys on campus, however Isaiah knew a lot of things about Matt that others didn’t. A lot of secrets that Matt continued to struggle with. Izzy knew it wasn’t his fault, but rather a consequence of being taught by his closed-minded father. Isaiah’s moth
er may have been much different, but she never overstepped her boundaries when it came to education.

Just like her, Izzy never pushed Matt to do things that made him uncomfortable. He did, however, try to nudge him in the right direction from time to time. The blonde cared too much about his step brother to simply sit back and watch while the latter lived an unhappy life, ”Here is perfect!” Izzy exclaimed once he’d spotted two empty seats right in the center of the second row. He settled into his just as the lights began to die down, signaling the show was about to begin.

Matt sighed as he watched his step brother make his way through the crowd excited to show off girl he was crushing on. In all honesty the only reason Matt was even going to this thing was in order to finally but a face to the name he hears often. If he had his way he’d be back at his dorm avoiding everything. He knew that as your stereo typical ‘popular’ guy he should stick to the stereo type but today he couldn’t bring himself to care. Before they had left the house to make it to the dorms Matt had yet another blow up with his dad who just couldn’t understand why his perfect son had to make the biggest mistake of his life by choosing to study music composition instead of going to law school like he expected to. Matt had thought his dad would have given up trying to change his mind after he has spent years winning awards for his work and those awards continued to come after entering college, not only for his music composition major but also his film minor. This proved to just anger his father more because he was still choosing The Arts over something practical. There isn't a doubt in Matt's mind that his father would have forced Matt to give up the only thing that truly made him feel completely happy if it hadn't been for his stepmom. After their blow up this time Matt was ready to lock himself up in his new dorm and just create. He was pleasantly surprised that his roommate was no where to be seen when he got there and was set for a nice quiet night in. That is until Izzy appeared to drag him to this performance.

As the lights begin to dim he shifted in his seat getting comfortable. When the stage relit Matt was in awe. Out of all the figures dancing on stage one kept drawing him in. By the end of the first performance he was sitting at the edge of the seat barely blinking. Matt knew he should have been paying more attention to Izzy because the whole point of coming but he couldn't look away from the tiny dancer that had caught his eye. His question of " Who Is that?" came out in a whisper to no one in particular, but he got the answer he wanted. One of the guys behind him leaned forward whispering back, "Judging from the direction your looking thats Sammy and Jasmine the co-captains." Matt just nodded silently not looking away.

As the lights went out after her groups final performance Jasmine ran over to her best friend full of excitement because they pulled it off. There was so much pressure put on the captains for any giving performance but the first one of the year always weighed the heaviest on Jasmine. Dance was her passion and while she prided her self on being generally honest with her feelings to those around her she knew dance was where she showed completely unguarded emotions. It also was the thing that gave her the best chance of a future career she'd truly enjoyed. Jasmine's mom was once a dancer but didn't pursue it as more than a hobby leaving her working in a dead end job that she hated. Seeing her mother going through life like that made her truly fear ending up the same way. Luckily her mom was never against her following this dream in fact ever since she won her first competition her mom was over the moon for a new dancer in the family. Getting accepted into the University on scholarship allowed both of them to breathe a sigh of relief. Jasmine was snapped when she heard, "Okay everyone hug each other later its time for Current Call!"

The first sight of the crowd always brings joy to her heart because it's the first glimpse she gets of the faces of her audience. Are they feeling the joy she is? What about the sorrow? While performing she can never tell but during Current call she can finally see if her story came through properly. Jasmine ran over to her spot ready to see all the faces in the crowd. After her last bow she found herself frozen in place. There front and center in the second row sat Izzy. The a-dork-able guy from her class. Izzy has never told any one this not even Sammy but she rather liked the mess of a man. So seeing him there at the performance varied her nerves to the point where she began to doubt her overall performance. She was so busy going through the entire performance in her head she didn't even notice when she whispers, "I probably looked like an edit and of course the rushed beginning of the year dance is the one he sees!!" Causing some of the people closed to her to learn and stare at her questioningly. After one of the girls placed a hand on her shoulder Jasmine snapped out of her trance. Taking a calming deep breath she turned around look for her best friend because a girl needed bestie time.

Matt stared at Izzy in utter disbelief. Not but a few moments after being told he was about to be able to head back to his dorm, finally free to go about the rest of the evening in solitude that he craved his brother just HAD to go make up prior dinner plans just so he could spend more time with the girl he has been talking about nonstop. He took one look at Izzy told him that this was an outcome of his panicking so he decided to just let it slide until after they were alone. "Yeah, We were planning to go get something but Izzy hasn't decided what he wants. Why don't you join us anywhere you'd like?"

Matt watched as Jasmine thought this through. Until finally she nodded says, "I mean I know a place and am STARVING per usual after one of these events. Though I actually have plans to go eat there with my best friend, so if you'd like you to could join us." Matt agreed for Izzy knowing the man wouldn't pass up this chance. "Lead the way. We will follow." Jasmine laughed before turning and yelling, "SAMMY I'm hungry, Come On! Oh I invited some friends to join us hope you don't mind." Matt felt butterflies or at least thats the best way to describe what he was feeling when the smaller boy turned toward the three of them. He even felt his breathe catch but quickly schooled his features and regained his composure hopefully before anyone around him notices.

He watched the other three start walk away before he followed behind them. This dinner wasn't his ideal situation at all but he knew that at least Izzy would be getting something out of this and MAYBE he would get some info on the boy who has been clouding his mind since he saw him. Not that it would mean anything for him.

Sizing up the two boys after their initial invite was an automatic reaction. After all it's not everyday you get to encounter the two polar opposite boys. The two were pretty well known but seeing the two of them together they were so different but so comfortable with each it amazed her. As excited as she was to finally get to spend time with the blonde outside of class she still wasn't sure what to make of the other. Judging by Matthew's response time she was fairly certain that the two boys hadn't discussed dinner plans OR at the very least hadn't discussed inviting her. Once all the details were sorted out she pulled Sammy along and trusted the boys would follow.

As the restaurant came into view Jasmine turned around to check on the two following behind. The slightly flirty smile that graced her faced she caught Isaiah's eye changed to a small knowing smile as she saw Matt purposefully looking anywhere BUT near Sammy and here. "Well boys here we are who's ready to eat?! ...This dinner was about to be really interesting...

The comments came and went as Sammy stood by the door of the auditorium. Most of them were congratulatory words from spectators, as well as the occasional question from one of the dancers about whether they’d done well or not. Sammy didn’t particularly mind. He’d always been a social person, not to mention, Jazz seemed to be preoccupied. He could spot her excitement even from where he was standing, in between brief conversations. Sammy knew her well enough to know she liked Izzy more than she’d ever admit to. Not that he could blame her. The boy was very beautiful, and from what Sammy could conjure, he had a personality to match. For a brief moment, he thought about walking over to invite him to dinner, but something stopped him. Or rather, someone.

The same someone that looked taken aback when Jazz called for him. Sammy quickly bid the other dancers goodbye and joined the small group of three. “Sammy! I swear you get better and better each dance.” Izzy was quick to compliment. Had it been anyone else, Sammy would have thought he was just saying it to land of Jazz’ good side. However, Isaiah never came off as being that type of person. So the small dancer took the compliment at face value with a grateful smile. “Thank you, thank you” he bowed slightly before turning his attention to Matt just as Isaiah introduced him as his brother. Sammy couldn’t help but lift a brow. He would’ve never linked the two together, especially not as family. Though Sammy smiles politely, there was something about the guy that didn’t quite feel right. The boy knew Matt Brooks as did the rest of the school; the oh so popular and social golden boy. Yet here he stood in front of them barely saying a word now.

Luckily, Isaiah filled in the silence for him, avoiding any sense of awkwardness as they took off to the restaurant. As he and Jazz walked ahead, Sammy could feel a gaze on him, which he did his best to ignore. They sat at their table and quickly ordered their drinks. As expected, Izzy was the first to spark conversation. “I’m still not over that solo performance you did towards the end” he chimed, bright blues staring at Sammy. “How can you even bend like that?” The small dancer couldn’t help but laugh at the blonde’s genuine amazement. He took a sip of his drink before answering. “I’ll tell you a secret” Sammy said, amused by how large Izzy’s eyes had grown. “I don’t have any bones in my body.” He joked. Izzy laughed, and maybe it was a trick of the light but Sammy could’ve sworn he saw a smile on Matt’s face.

To say Izzy was excited would be a major understatement. Not only was he finally going to have dinner with his crush, but his curiosity towards Matt and his sudden interest in Sammy made it all the better. The blonde made sure to introduce the two the moment Sammy joined them, though he could tell Matt was doing his best to avoid any and all forms of interaction with the dancer. It was amusing to say the least. Matt wasn’t anywhere near as extroverted and social as Izzy, but the blonde had never seen his brother this silent before. He dared to say maybe even a little shy.

The restaurant was just outside the campus, so rather than each taking their own car, the four of them walked. Izzy knew he was doing his best to hide it, but could still tell Matt was avoiding any form of eye contact with Sammy. Though he’d caught him looking each and every time the boy walked just a little bit ahead. Isaiah had never been the best at hiding his emotions, so needless to say his amusement due to the situation was written all over his features. He could tell Matt did not appreciate it one bit, but if there was anyone Matt couldn’t ever lie to, whether unintentionally or on purpose, it was Izzy. The blonde could read his brother like a book, and even when he couldn’t, Matt would confide in him knowing Izzy would never judge him.

For a bit, the table chatter went smoothly, but as the conversation began to dwindle a bit, Izzy could feel Matt’s growing anxiety. “I’m going to go get some refills. Matt come help me” he stated as he got to his feet, taking a couple of the empty glasses in his hand. As the two distances themselves from the table and reached the bar, Izzy turned to his brother. “Alright what’s the deal, Romeo? I’ve never seen you this nervous before.” His eyes glanced over Matt’s shoulder at their table. "Do you....?" He wanted to ask if Matt had a crush on Sammy, despite having known the boy for all of five minutes, but knew better than to push him. He was more likely to tell him the truth on his own. Izzy just had to be patient regardless of how dificult that was for him.
