Alea wears a wide range of styles, from Bohemian and Grunge to Solarpunk and Festival Fashion; and if she's feeling really inspired, Jamaican and Indian inspired fashion. Ever since she moved to Miami, she's been able to really spread her wings style wise since there's so much more options.

Image
-Usually smells like very hot spices, fruit, and sap.
-Has two dialects from the way she was brought up; a more American-Jamaican hybrid which sounds like a more general west indie accent[i.e] and the more broken down Jamaican Patois Jamaica is known for. [i.e]
-Her more Americanized voice is the one she sings with unless she wants to sing in Patois.
-She can speak English and Hindi.
-She can play Piano and Cello.

Alea is a girl who keeps her head down for the most part. She doesn’t go out of her way to get in other people’s business nor does she try to stand out of the crowd at all, she’s quiet and focuses on her studies instead of gossip; most of classmate don’t even notice she’s in class half the time since she keeps to herself. She usually doesn’t instigate conversations unless she needs to ask something, but she quick to comfort a stranger when their distressed. She’s drawn to people filled with strong emotions, whether they be good or bad, and can see beyond the walls people put up and right to the core which usually unnerves people upon meeting her; expect her to find you when you’re about to break down. This is the usually way she makes friends; by picking them up at their lowest point and putting them back together. She likes to consider herself as the stone for others to lean on for support, but it’s physically and emotionally draining, there have been plenty of times where she has broken herself taking on other people’s baggage and usually alone. This has led to moments of feeling worthless to others unless needed and solidifying the fact that her own feelings aren’t β€œimportant enough” to be noticed by others when in fact.

For those who are more familiar with her, Alea is wild. She all smiles and perverted jokes and straightforward -almost rude- opinions, loyal to a T and so very caring to almost anyone in her life; even her rivals and enemies receive the respect she gives every being; in fact her first and only sexual experience was with someone she considered her enemy. She refuses to break others down or throw the first punch or insult, but that doesn’t mean she won’t be the first to get angry. She’ll curse and threaten and dare them to do or say something or to get out of her face, revealing the volcano hidden beneath the calm waters of her personality. She’ll use it, and she’ll use it well. She’ll come defending anyone and everyone in need, taking the brunt of blows for complete strangers and turn around as calm and as nurturing as a mama bird a moment later.

Alea’s usually too feisty for most of the people she becomes interested in; if of course they were already long time friends and already dating someone else. She tends to not think of people in a sexual or romantic light until she’s known them for a while and usually by that time they’re asking for her help setting them up with that cute girl/guy in her class. This, and her crippling insecurity, leads to her not really saying anything. Sure she’s gotten compliments and such, and she could see some of objectively attractive features on her body, but she’s never considered herself to be an attractive person. So she usually waves off other’s compliments, knowing nothing will be built on it, especially from the drunken boys who try getting her in bed. While having sex without the sexual attraction fine, she would still need some more wooing over other than a few compliments and drinks. A bit of competence and finesse is needed to win her over; a way with words and really laying that passion on thick would be the best way to get her out of her head. As for females and feminine people, she is more likely to be the flirter than the flirtee. Either way, expect a lot of playfulness and flirting, as well as a challenge if you plan taking control.

Image
  • Poetry
    She considers it to be the closest humans can get to putting their emotions on paper and make others feel everything to near perfection. Alea indulges herself to poems everyday, favoring the works of Maya angelou, Walt Whitman, and Emily Dickinson. She even dabbles into the craft herself from time to time.
  • Music & Dancing
    She grew up singing and dancing, celebrating both life and death with a dance and a song as it should be. She moves to the sound of music and likes to find songs to match the pace of her friends all the time. Music and dance is to her what sex is to others, a release of stress and worry and gets better with more people joining in. It could be s elaborate and as simple as one wants and still be fun. Swing, salsa, and ballroom are her favorite since it requires to people to dance; needless to say, she doesn't get to do that a lot.
  • Cuddling
    Alea is very touch starved, to the point of even brushing against her skin makes her stiffen. So when someone decides to lean on her or hold her close, she is quick to start purring and getting closer. It make her heart flutter knowing someone is willing to be vulnerable around her.
  • Art
    Art is another medium Alea considers to be a parallel to human nature and emotion and will talk anyone's ear off about it. She practices digital drawing all the time and often posts her pictures online.
  • Nature
    Alea was brought up around nature. She's grown up climbing mountains and trees for fruits and other sweets. Since there wasn't a lot of stuff to do inside, she was always outside, especially at night when it was nice and cool and the bats of ancestors came out to hang with her.

Image
  • Being left behind
    With a history of being only there for the support of others and someone to talk to when they were bored, she is very used to people leaving her behind for something bigger and better.
  • Apotemnophobia
    Because she expresses herself so much with her body, and needs every part of her in order to enjoy them fully, she is terrified about losing an arm or leg and becoming disabled. She tries not to think about it too much though.
  • Losing her senses
    Same as losing a physical body part but worse. Alea doesn't want to think about going blind or deaf or losing her sense of touch or smell (if that's possible) since she uses them all in her day to day life.
  • Breaking
    Since she's built herself up to be this rock others can lean on, Alea is hesitant to tell others about her problems even though she would love their help. She feels like a bother and needy when she talks about the thing she goes though but it was just how she was brought up.

Alea was born in small town in Lionel Town Jamaica, a small town in the Clarendon Parish on the south end of the island to a very dysfunctional family. Her mother and father, Eralia and Aarav, were only 16 when she was conceived. Because of this, Eralia was disowned by her parents and the two were forced to marry by Aarav’s, leading them both to be very unhappy with each other well before she was born. Ever since she was young, Alea could sense that she wasn’t wanted by her mother who, while gave her food, clothes, and a place to sleep, never focused on her emotional or mental needs. And when her father left for the states when she was 6, Alea was left with her mother. Now Jamaica was not big on emotional or mental health being a developing country born from slavery and religion, so while things like child abuse and neglect is look down upon, emotional abuse or neglect is even recognized. When Alea got to the first grade, she was already very meek and quiet, listening to the teachers and staff and never really interacting with the other kids unless she absolutely had to.

It wasn’t until she moved into the states to stay a couple years in America was she actually diagnosed with Asperger's probably from emotional neglect, and ADHD caused by hypersensitivity. Even though she didn’t know what all that meant at the time, she definitely felt better in America, even though her father didn’t care all that much for her either. At the very least, her problems were recognized in the states. Alea kept flying back and forth between Jamaica and the states whenever her parent couldn’t handle taking care of her and so she grew up learning to care for herself, so much so she struggles to let others know she’s hurting save for the plethora of self- deprecating jokes she makes. She was able to open up, but mostly to show face and make it easier for her peers to hang out with her. This is also the time when she learns the piano and then the Cello and finally to sing classically.

Back in Jamaica during her mid teen years, Alea has started getting uppity with her mother and her father’s family and is basically thrown out of the house on several occasions. During those times, she would usually go into the brush around her home and stay in the trees at night, filling an empty stomach with fruit and sap. Despite the strain, she and her family were still forced to be together and her new skills were something to flaunt during parties. They made sure to make sure she learned to cook, clean, and every other thing needed in order for to be a perfect wife. She adamantly refused and when the news of her father’s death came out, all hell broke lose. He left her most of his money, and while she couldn’t bring herself to outright bawl, she was sadden if only a little. Still she took the money and applied to Fulton, where she stays.





ImageImage
"I take naps because my parents told me β€œyou can be anything, just follow your dreams." So, I practice, knowing full well this will never make me perfect."

Image
” I didn’t really want to come to this school, let alone join the Zetas with the amount of partying they do and the fact that my mother was one of them and basically forced me in their ranks. If had to choose it would’ve been Thetas; the Alphas are boasie bull bucka. The same goes for dem fenky-fenky doghearts β€˜round dem…but I guess what I realized when I joined was that they were unapologetically themselves and I had to give them that; though they remind me a lot of the girls back on the island... At least I get to dance like I’m still there.”

Image
”Hopefully get work as an Actress, preferably here in the states. If not that, then I’ll take up some other artistic job and will probably keep working where I am now. I’m already saving up for when I have to get my own place and if I have enough by graduation, I might move north.”

So begins...

The campus was alive with excitement, anxiety, nerves, and anticipation. A new school year has begun and for some, they are moving onto campus for the first time. They've looked at DIYs on Pinterest to decorate their new dorm rooms, managed to find the contact information for their prospective roommate so that they could figure out which one of them was going to bring the television or the small fridge, and prepared themselves for the over-dramatic goodbyes they're bound to receive from overprotective mothers and fathers. For some, they are arriving at Fulton or even Florida in an entirely new environment with a set of people they probably never encountered in their hometowns. Others are simply moving on campus from down the street. For a select few, they not only have done this before - this move in process - but they aren't as enthused. Not unless, of course, you are a part of the Greek life system. For these groups, some are older members awaiting the arrival of the new members they inducted just before the summer, little brothers and sisters they can't wait to fully ensnare into their individual fraternity culture. The others are these new members, eager to move away from the communal dorms and into their respective houses for the first times, eager for all the fun and belonging this new year is bound to bring them. This year means exclusive invitations to parties that other students wouldn't get. Hopefully, they're just as prepared for the drama this year is bound to bring as well.

Some upperclassmen were allowed to move on to campus earlier for various reasons. For instance, Katiana returned to campus on Monday because the dance team began conditioning before the school year even started; because her sister and father were helping her in (her mom couldn't take off), she ended up staying at the hotel with them and getting rides to campus during the day. Plus, Professor Lang - Tricia, now that Kat was allowed to call her that - had wanted her there earlier so that they could shape Katiana's schedule around Tricia's. There was no point in her having classes that would put her on one side of the campus when she would have to be in Tricia's class, helping, five minutes afterwards. The last four days had been grueling. The Fulton University dance team earned their stripes by strenuous hours of exercise and maintaining their flexibility, and while Kat was experienced in all of that, she was still human and was sore afterwards. Even now. It probably didn't help that she hadn't exactly spent as much of her summer as she normally did dancing.

"Why are they working y'all so hard? Ain't y'all already on the team?" Aja inquired, thumbs digging into the still slightly tense muscles in Kat's right calf, taking up a soothing rotation as she tried to massage the ache away. It wasn't nearly as bad as yesterday when Kat returned to hotel, but she knew it was going to bother her for the rest of the day. Luckily, Kat wasn't a novice to this. It was her own fault for not being as vigilant this summer. "Not really," she replied after a wince. Aja had struck a particular tense spot and after a few harder rubs, Kat relaxed onto the sofa they managed to make into the space under her bed. Even though Fulton happened to renovate the Greek homes, it didn't stop them from being cheap to an extent and putting beds that would've belonged to bunk beds in the shared bedrooms. It just so happened that Aja already had a plan for her because of that knowledge.

"Everybody but the captain and co-captain gotta audition to get their spot back on the team. Those of us who were, get to do the conditioning and learn the routine ahead of the newbies so that by the time auditions actually go down, we get judged - not just by how well we do the moves, but how much we add a lil somethin'-somethin' to it." Aja sucked her teeth, wincing in sympathy as she eventually stopped her ministrations so that Kat could fully lay back, legs on her big sister's lap. "Sucks, kiddo," she remarked. Kat was busy texting Jake, Kory, and Annabelle before she responded. "Tis life, babe," she replied, taking in her side of the room, hand in her hair. She'd been hit all over again with the giddiness that came with having Annabelle as her roommate and she couldn't wait to see the redhead. Their names had been on the bedroom door in the Theta colors. But she also couldn't wait to see Jake and Kory, even though she had seen both several times over the summer.

To: Jake, Kory
Dad & AJ wanna kno if u both need help?

To: Annie <3
Just moved in. Where r u roomie?

"Let's go. Dad's probably taking up your new sisters on crushing those pasties and coffee," Aja commented and Katiana slid her feet off the older woman; the petite dance rose to her feet and stretched, ignoring the near silent pop in the base of her spine. She needed to do another stretch before the day was over, a longer one at that. "Shit, I might take 'em up on that," she said with a grin, scooping up her phone and keys as she followed her sister out. The older Thetas made decaffeinated and caffeinated coffee that they had freshly ground in the morning with an assortment of scones, danishes, and pastries, with a few savory treats Kat's fast metabolism was ready to take on. Hopefully, they also had tea. Kat didn't feel like coming back upstairs to get her stash of loose-leaf just yet.

"That's definitely not how it goes, Jake..." Korinna's voice came from the opposite side of the kitchen counter of where Jakub was attempting (and failing) at piecing together a new coffee machine for the Sigma's estate. Though the Zeta president's voice didn't hold it's usual power. It had been a tiring past few days during which several things had taken a good amount of her energy. Some of which included getting into a heated argument with her mother, making sure both new and returning Zeta girls were able to settle in okay, and helping Jake move his things in to avoid his piling them all in one corner and procrastinating until the last possible minute. That had all happened within the last 48 hours and really, the only things that sounded remotely pleasant to the senior were a nice hot bath and a five hour nap.

Jakub peered at his sister through dark lashes before focusing his attention back on the contraption in front of him. The machine had been left unattended back at the Darzi-Lopez residence for ages, and it had been Kory to suggest bringing it over for the boys and putting it to use. A choice that she was slowly but surely beginning to regret. "I'm pretty sure it is. Google wouldn't lie to me." he protested while he continued to mess with the bolts and notches. Kory resisted the urge to roll her eyes into the back of her head and folded her arms across her chest in an annoyed fashion.

"Okay then genius, but don't blame me when the thing blows up and sets the whole damn kitchen on fire." Jakub's movements stop entirely, his full energy focused on giving Kory the best deadpan look he could create, only receiving a minor raise of the right eyebrow in return.

"And you call me dramatic?" Kory was dully prepared to give a response to Jakub's sass, but a series of noises from somewhere outside the kitchen took both of their attention. For a moment she has almost forgotten that Jake wasn't the only one moving in, which also reminded her she needed to get her petite self back to her perspective house in case the girls

needed her. She had already seen Deanna and Alea from afar, and even though no one needed to tell her these girls could take care of themselves, she still liked to be there for them as the president. Jakub would just have to fend for himself, and soon enough, one of the other sigmas would come to his aid. "Has Jax made it back yet?" immediately after asking, Kory could almost hear the suggestive comebacks beginning to formulate in Jakub's head, made obvious by the cheeky smirk that spread across his face.

"Why do you ask? Are you finally going to admit that you're in love with him?" Kory knew well enough that Jakub was only teasing, as he always loved to do on the subject of Jackson and her becoming an item. Still, the competitive side of her just couldn't stay quiet. "Are you finally going to admit you're in love with Kat?" Jakub's features immediately morphed into something between feeling dumbfounded and betrayed, which tickled at Kory's stomach, forcing a tired laugh out of the small girl. "And speak of the she-devil" she added, turning her phone screen so that Jakub could see Katiana's message before responding. She also took advantage of the times and sent a couple of reassuring messages for her girls.

To: Little Lea / Dee
MSG: Hey babes, need any help?

To: Arden
MSG: How's my favorite Kappa doing? :) anyone I need to rough up tonight?

To: Kitty Kat
MSG:I'm all set, thanks babe. But Jake could always use some help.

Jakun scrunched his eyebrows in Kory's direction after reading the group message on his own phone, and of course he was quick to respond.

To: Kat
MSG She's lying. I'm fine -.- it's all fine

Alea groaned when her phone chimed, cutting of the reggae she was playing. She really didn’t want to get up from her still unmade bed, had just finished setting up her sit of the room, plants hung from the ceiling and sat in pots all around her space, their vines propped up to climb the walls as they grow. It took her several hours to finish and she still needed to stow away all the food she brought back with her from her trip to Jamaica. She had to go back down there since they were vacating the houses, so she was stuck back in that damned house with her mother and parental relatives for two months, and during that time had to attend three weddings, two nine nights, and a family reunion. It was hell; her skin was still stained from the henna that was constantly put on her and her body was sore from all the dancing. And all the prodding questions!

A day didn’t go by when someone ask her about her marital status, especially during those events, where she’s dancing with everyone anyone. God forbid she hung out with a guy for more than 20 minutes, else her grandparents would’ve been hunting down his family to marry her off. She was glad to board that airplane that morning and finally relax enough to sleep during the flight back, but she was still emotionally drained when she woke up 2 hours later.

All Alea wants to do is sleep forever to the beat of Murder She Wrote. β€˜Still, it would be rude not to respond.’ And with that thought in mind, she sat up with another groan and left her room, carrying her phone with her
to shoot back a reply.


To: Sister Mother/Luxury Dee
MSG:Nope, I'm fine. Just need to put away some food from home and then I’ll be done.

MSG:I brought a bunch of stuff back with me for everyone. You two want it now or later?

MSG: Oh and can you tell Kat and Jake too?


It’ll be a pain to hunt everyone down, but oh well. She had more pressing matters; like filling this freezer and cupboard to the brim with food and herbs! She packed the fridge with breadfruit, ackee and other foods before moving onto the cupboard where several bottles and jars of herbs and spices were placed.

To: Annie <3
Kk babe

To: Jake, Kory
Okie dokie, ill come c u in a bit

To: Jake
u sure? we have food

"Oh no," Aja cried, prompting Kat to look up from her text to Jake away from their small group message with Kory, thumb hesitating over a random key, face almost startled. Aja was smirking while their Dad was busy speaking to one of the Theta seniors. By the time the sisters had arrived downstairs, her Dad had apparently spoken to at least three of the older Theta members about the past wee; how Aja had dragged him to three different stores (this was true) because neither she nor Katiana could agree upon a color scheme (also true, even though Kat will be the first to say that she conceded in favor of not having to go to any other store for goddamn lights), the drive back-and-forth from the hotel to campus because they wouldn't let students move back on to campus just yet but they could still get things done on campus during the day (untrue because Kat would've had an excuse to move back on to campus earlier; her dad was just unwilling to let her go too soon), etc. "That's your probably-talking-to-Jake face." Kat could feel the blush rising and only in hindsight appreciated having a darker complexion; it helped hide crap like that from leery assholes like Aja. "I don't have a Jake face," she insisted, grabbing two paper plates. Aja snorted "yeah, uh huh" a little bit too disbelievingly, so Kat hip-checked her while also busting in front of her sister in the line to make plates for herself and Kat, making sure to give herself two chocolate-filled croissants and whatever egg-ham-and-cheese pastry that was that smelled so good because her stomach was all types of aching for it. And being just a touch loud about its excitement over food now that she wasn't unpacking and had time to eat.

It was probably a good thing that Kat was trying to decide if she was going to pause, put a napkin over Annabelle's food, adn then race said food upstairs so that the girl's plate could be effectively saved. Her lapse in judgement was great because while she had one plate clutched very tightly in each hand, napkins secured against them by each fork, a pair of arms immediately wrapped themselves around her waist only a few seconds after she heard a very familiar squeal. Recovering from the immediate shock only a second later, Kat was grinning and turned around to face the redhead, setting the plates down on the buffet table her sister was still standing beside so that she could fully embrace her friend. Annie Bee she squealed in response, clutching her tightly for a moment longer before pulling back, arms still around her. "I missed you, baby." Kat let one arm drop from her friend to gesture to her sister, who wiggled her fingers in response with a smile around a sweet almond danish, "I told you about my sister, Aja, and that's," she directed the redhead's gaze to her father, who chose at that moment to look up from his third cup of coffee and wave distractedly, "my Dad talking a whole in Mara's head."

Okay, so Deanna might have had a little bit too much coffee.

"Said, 'Lil bitch, you can't fuck with me if you wanted to.' These expensive, these is red bottoms, these is bloody shoes," Deanna sang, more like yelled, rather aggressively, hands gestures and all as she went along with Cardi B's hit song, the white end of a lollipop the only thing muffling the worst of the lyrics. Luckily, her own roommate, a junior named Faith, hadn't arrived yet so there was no worry about having to explain why her roommate was literally in the middle of their room, one half noticeably unpacked, turning up on a Friday when most people were trying to turn down and unpack. Then again, Dee wouldn't have been the one to care enough to explain herself in the first place. If she was too much for you in a house meant for Zetas only, then you didn't belong there, parent or not.

The point in all of this, however, was to say that she probably would've already been dead to the world had she not ingested a lot of coffee. She and Starbucks had been best friends for the last twenty-four hours and eventually, it was going to show. But for now, Dee felt like she had endless energy. She had spent the entire summer in Los Angeles for her internship, so she had actually been coming back to school from that very location. Which meant it was a flight from Los Angeles to Miami via Houston. Eleven hours and forty two minutes. With only a one hour nap. Never mind the fact that Deanna had been on and off the phone making sure the belongings she had put into storage arrived after she did, making sure that the last few scholarships she needed hit her student accounts and that no paperwork was lost in translation, and settling the issue of whether or not she had a meal plan on campus (she did not. Dee figured that there was no point in trusting an albeit satisfactory cafeteria when she lived in a house and could therefore cook her own meals, opting whether or not she would pick up something on campus). The point was that yes, Deanna was probably the last person you would say was the most mature person in the world, but you could never say that she didn't know how to adult. She had even unpacked and gotten her side of the room to look exactly how she wanted.

Still didn't mean that she hadn't had too much coffee.

Because she did.

"Honestly, don't give a fuck 'bout who ain't fond of me. Dropped two mixtapes in six months, what bitch working as hard as me? I don't bother with these hoes, don't let these hoes bother me. They see pictures, they say, "Goals," bitch, I'm who they tryna be," she continued, music blasting even amidst the little ringtone she had set up for text messages. Glancing back at it, Dee settled for mumbling the words, taking a deep suck of strawberry flavored candy in her mouth while her left hand held onto the pristine white stick; her right hand scooped her device up. Pointedly ignoring the unimportant messages from her Dad, Dee's sticky, dark blue lips widened into a grin as she saw who had messaged her. Turning her music down only because she needed to concentrate on words, Dee hurried to text people back, opting afterwards to head downstairs to the kitchen to see if Alea still was putting food away so that she could see if there were plantains to steal and fry for later.

Unlike almost everyone else at Fulton, Khari hadn't left Miami much over the summer. His family already lived out there, and he didn't have any fancy internship or expensive holidays to whisk him away. Much as he may wish he did. The longest he went away for was half a week, and even then that was just to visit Faith, his step-sister, in New York. It was only a three hour flight which made it easy for Khari to often go and visit Faith whenever his step-father did. It was something that Khari liked to do just to get away from the monotony of life in Miami. Becoming so accustomed to uni and home-life there, Khari sometimes felt like he needed an escape, so he took the opportunity whenever it was presented.

However, aside from that one short trip, Khari had spent the rest of his summer working at LIV which was tiring, but certainly came with its perks. For example, Khari worked every night there was an event - meaning that he had gotten to see the likes of Skrillex, Travis Scott and Lil Wayne perform. He'd also worked the same night Fergie performed, although that was something he wasn't in a rush to tell anyone about, especially because he enjoyed it way more than he felt he should. Whoever says they don't like Fergalicious is a fucking liar in Khari's mind.

Sighing as he stretches before hopping up out of bed, where he had been laying for almost half an hour now, thinking about nothing as Frank Ocean played softly in the background. He was happy that he would see his brothers today, having missed them a surprising amount as they jetted all over the world, leaving him in Miami alone. Quietly, Khari curses all the amount of time he spent with Kali, his little sister, this summer blaming her for the reason he was being all emotional and shit.

"Khari if you still want a lift to Fulton, you better get your ass down here right now." Oh shit. His mom was mad. Glancing at his watch, Khari realises why. That half an hour he had spent in bed turned out to be an hour and a half. Switching off his Sonos speaker, Khari grabs his pre packed duffel bag, thanking God for past him having the initiative to prepare everything last night. Giving his room a final once over, Khari turns and shuts his bedroom door behind him, rushing downstairs. "Hey mom, I'm ready." Khari grins, flashing his white teeth in hopes that his charming smile will make her just a little less angry.

Shaking her head at her son, Dalia finishes off her coffee and dumps the mug into the sink, grabbing her car keys off the kitchen counter. "Come on then, you're going to make me late for work." Dalia sighs, as Khari follows her out to the car, stopping only to give his little sister Kali a hug before continuing to follow his mother. As they get into the car, Khari glances back at the front door where Kali is stood. Waving to her as they drive off, Khari settles back into his seat, ready for the twenty minute drive back to Fulton. "Sorry I got distracted earlier, thanks for giving me a ride though." It was at times like this Khari regretted never learning to drive, which was something very uncommon for an American teenager, but since he was always given lifts by his friends or family members, Khari never felt like he actually needed to learn how to drive himself.

Watching the cars driving by out of his window, Khari zones out for a moment before he is brought back to reality by a buzzing from his phone. Smiling as he checks it, Khari sees two messages - One was a group text from Jax and one from Cornelius. Unlocking his phone, Khari quickly sends back replies.

To: Big Boss / Jax, Lil Bro / Cassius, The Accomplice / Jakub
Lads!! I'm nearly home. Hope you didn't miss me too much.

To: Secret Sigma / Cornelius, Big Boss / Jax
You wanna hang w/ the Sigmas now? Come by later I'll have the initiation ritual all set up ;)


Lightly chuckling to himself at the thought of some sort of cult initiation into the Sigmas, Khari knew that it would freak Cornelius out before he realised that he was joking. Thinking about if there were any texts he needed to send out, Khari decides to shoot out a couple of his own.

To: Angel Ally / Alea, Dee Dee / Deanna, Queen Kory / Korinna
I hope my Zeta girls didn't forget about me...Who am I kidding, as if you could ;)

To: Lil Bro / Cassius
You at Fulton yet man? Hope you had a good summer.


Shoving his phone back into his pocket, Khari glances up to see that they are just now pulling into Fulton, he smiles at the school as they pass actually happy to be back. Khari was looking forward to all the chaos he and his Sigma boys were bound to cause this year.

β€œOi, gyal! Don’t ya go tiffin me plantains! If ya want some you ask,” Alea called her out when she turned around to see Deanna sneaking in, having opened her texts as soon as the chime went off and knowing she would; anything to stop her from bending over with her sore back really,” Really now, we live in Miami. There are plantains in the store.” Her accent was thicker than it was before the break, making her sound a lot angrier than she actually was, but the smile on her lip and the shuddering of her shoulders blew that intimidating image away like smoke. Why would she be mad? She’s with her friend! The first friend she’s met since getting of that wretched plane. She was quick to circle the island and pulled the taller girl into a hug only pulling back to beam her with a dazzling smile.

β€œβ€™Ey, wa gwan, Deanna? How was Angeles?” She asked her, moving back around the counter to put away the food once more, starting with the plantains. She worked very hard smuggling this in… Okay that’s a lie. She didn’t hide it and no one cared. Still, she brought it back from her own tree like most of the produce she brought back with her and hell will have to freeze over before she parts from it just like that.

The sound of her phone going off interrupted their reunion and when Alea opened it up, she scoffed and shook her head with a chuckle, only giving Deanna a name before typing a quick reply, ”Khari…”



To: Flirty idiot #1

MSG: And who are you again?

MSG: Are you one of the guys I danced with at the first wedding? Or the second wake?


Of course she’s only teasing, Khari was fun to tease and she wasn’t going to pass up a chance to mess with him. She’ll have to go and find him to give him his present anyway. Speaking of presents- β€œOh yeah! Presents!” Alea bounded toward one of the many bags on the island, skidding in front of one of them. Alea dug through it as quickly and delicate as she could before she squealed in triumph and turning back around. β€œIt’s not much but I hope you like them!!”

While the siblings bickered with themselves in the kitchen, Cassius sat in the living room, his eyes glued to his phone at his thumb scrolled through the book he had downloaded earlier in the week for the flight back to Miami while his earbuds sat in his ears uselessly, not even on to block out the racket those two were making. He had went back to Rye for the summer to escape from the Florida heat and to see his family which was the more socially acceptable reason he supposed. Honestly, it was mostly boring pleasantries in a town much too small for him now. It was like he never left, and that bothered him; nothing changed, and he doubts anything ever will. Still he was able to go to a reptile show in London and bought four new ball pythons, all exquisite genos with amazing features to add to his collection.

They were actually being handled at the moment; all four of them. The VPI Axanthic Firefly sat coiled between the fingers of his free hand, the black and white pattern dizzying to any on trying to follow just how it ended up in that position. The Citrus Pastel Lesser Spider was able to avoid the same fate by instead curling around his forearm, the caramel patterned snake’s tongue flitting about whenever his muscles moved to swipe with his thumb, His third, his Lavender Albino Snow was curled in his lap and slowly making its way up his body, its flicking tongue already visible over the phone as if planned to scale it. And the last, his Sugar Queenspin coiled daintily around his neck, it’s scales nearly pure white. It was surely a sight, but nothing new to Cassius, or any of the other boys for the amount of times he’s taken several snakes out like this.

At the mention of Jax, his phone lit up with text messages from the missing sigmas. β€œThe king will be here soon it seems…Shall I doll out the red carpet and alert the choir?” He called out towards them, sounding as bored and disinterested as he looked,” Oh and Khari is on his way as well, how disheartening.” Of course he didn’t mean it, he was mostly just dreading the noise they will bring with them, destroying what little peace he had and dragging him into whatever they plan on doing now. Might as well try and warn them not to startle, else he’ll be in a world of hurt.

To: Jackson & Khari
MSG: Please try not to cause a spectacle when you arrive. I have my snakesd gf

Too late. Jax’s already busting down the and yelling, causing the small coils of muscle wrapped around him to tense up and squeeze his into submission. The phone stubbled out of his hand as Spider undid his grip while his Firefly wound his fingers around itself. The phone missed his Snow who is currently in a ball under his thigh while his Queen was trying -and failing- to get it’s pudgy body around the column of his throat. It wasn’t all that painful, just not pleasant and after some coaxing he was able to peel them all off to curl into balls in his lap.β€œSo much for the red carpet,” He said bitterly, picking up his phone once more, earbuds now out from the whole ordeal.

Nick honestly shouldn't be surprised when he received responses like the one he just did from CJ, but he couldn't help the way he almost choked on another sip of coffee, effectively catching a little bit of attention when he stopped in the middle of the walkway. Sputtering out an excuse to a passing classmate he remembered from a lab from last year that currently wanted to help, Nick had to clear his throat, cheeks tinted pink, before managing to send out a response to CJ. The flirting had never been anything serious because it would more than likely make being a Big and a Little one hell of an awkward situation, but it never failed to get a reaction out of Nick. And apparently always the ones CJ wanted if the triumph on the guy's face every single time said something. It was only half exasperating, more amusing than anything else.

To: CJ
Srsly? Im gonna have gray hairs b4 i leave here cuz of ur flirty ass. omw

It didn't take long for Nick to return to the Kappa house with the brisk pace he took, and he climbed up the stairs and into the house just in time for Arden's rather enthusiastic announcement. "Well, that's one way to do it," Nick remarked and patted the sophomore on the shoulder with a welcoming smile. "Probably gonna order out tonight if Harry doesn't mother bear everyone, so figure out what you want to eat." They hadn't really talked it through just yet, which was why Nick was headed into the kitchen anyway to look up what menus they still had at the house and weren't thrown away upon renovation, but he figured that no one wanted to eat in the school's cafeteria on the first night. Yes, it was open and yes, it was convenient. But this was also their first night back and it deserved something better than cafeteria food. Nick wasn't against cooking anything since it would be one of the few times during the school year that he would actually have the time to help out, and not have to dip on them, but it would mean that he and Harry would have to go grocery shopping. Which would need to get done now while everyone was still in the process of moving in.

Harry was still in the kitchen when Nick entered it and Nick's smile was bigger, brighter when he saw his best friend. "Hey, man," he greeted, not hesitating to pull the fellow senior into a hug. Soon enough, though too soon if you let his mind tell the story, but Nick squashed that uncomfortable voice down - he was pulling away and rummaging through one of the drawers beside Harry's leg. "So I was thinking we either cook tonight for the guys or order out. We still got the menus from last year? Or do we need to just go ahead and hit up Krogers?"

"Okay, but what's not 'bout to happen is y'all shit stayin' in the middle of the hallway like this," Deanna snapped as she maneuvered through the halls. Boxes were in the hallway along with various other items and she had half the mind to kick over the obviously Ikea-bought chair, but side-stepped it. "Let ya shit still be in my way come tomorrow and I'm throwin' shits away." She was pretty sure there was someone who said "fuck you" amidst the laughs - why they were laughing when Deanna was dead fucking serious was beyond her, but she'd fix them tomorrow and see who was laughing then - so she didn't hesitate to stretch her arms out, as she headed to the stairs, and exclaim playfully, "Name the time and place boo." She was also pretty sure that the tiny decorative pillow that hit the wall above her head before tumbling down the steps was directed at her as well, but Dee didn't care. She was more than likely going to steal it, if it was still at the bottom of the staircase later, and dare someone to come try to take it back.

Sadly, all of those earlier actions resulted in her not being as stealthy as she wanted to be upon entering the kitchen and seeing Alea distractedly putting food away. At least, Dee had thought the girl had been distracted until Alea whirled on her. "But Leeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaa," Deanna whined, effectively turning from a woman in her twenties into a rather tall two year old, lower lip poked out and everything. She had pulled her lollipop out of her mouth before she entered the kitchen. "They're Miami plantains. You and I both know there's a difference between Miami plantains and island plantains." That wasn't exactly true. Sentiments demanded that she believe that plantains grown on their homelands were better than the ones in the states, but out of all of the states for plantains to be bought, Miami was the best. They had really good ones, sweet and non-sweet. Yet and still, Deanna pretended to sulk, sticking her candy back in her mouth all sullenly even as she accepted the big hug her fellow Zeta gave her. Obviously, the face wasn't going to work at all since Alea was going back to putting food away, so Deanna only grinned at the inquiry about LA and hopped up onto one of the empty counters. "Amazing," she insisted around a mouthful of lollipop, gave a prompt suck so that she could swallow of the juicy deliciousness, and then pulled it out to better talk. "Definitely better waves, awesome vibes, and honestly better everything cuz a bitch's hair is out here growin' and ish," she added with a glide of her fingers through her shoulder-length hair paired with an arrogant grin. Before she could follow up with information about the internship or even ask about Alea's summer, both of their phones went off and Deanna was too lazy to reach into her pocket at the moment, so it was probably luck that it was Khari texting all of them, Deanna and Alea included. Dee rolled her eyes the second Alea told her and grudgingly pulled it out only to see Lea's response in their group chat, and laughed. "Daaaaaayyyuuuummm son." She chuckled as she also text him back.

To: Khari
We dont luv dese heuxes ;D

As she grinned at her own response for him and slid her phone back into its place, Alea was rummaging through one of the bags and Deanna perked up, sliding her lollipop back in her mouth to further enjoy it. To be quite honest, she had half the mind to get more coffee, but the candy was a pretty decent substitute and it was sweeter. Of course, all thoughts of candy and coffee were literally dumped from her brain the second Alea turned around. Not because Deanna couldn't shades and a bracelet anywhere, really. She liked them so much because Deanna just liked presents. She didn't get them often, only for Christmas really. So, whenever she received a gift, it brought a genuine smile to her face, much like the one she gave Alea. "Whaaaaattt? Of course I like 'em, boo. I'm 'bout to be cute," she declared and delicately took both from the girl, hugging her real quick so that she can actually put the glasses on.

Being the President meant having certain privileges versus the underclassmen. For starters, having a room all to yourself and being able to move in before everyone else. She decorated to the best of her ability and hoped the other girls liked it too. Normally, rooming by herself was a big no-no, but it felt right now. Scarlett would still keep her door open though. An open door policy is essential for being a good President.

Scarlett was currently doing some yoga in her room. She was finishing placing the last of her textbooks on her shelf when the need to practice caught her. Yoga has always been relaxing and she needed to be at peace currently. It was her last year. She'll be out of college and into medical school. Her dreams were getting closer and closer to her, but she felt sad. Theta Chi has meant so much to her and she can't imagine leaving any of these lovely girls behind. Her mother and father would be happy to see her graduate with a perfect GPA and honors. Her stepfather would be happy as well and her step siblings would be happy, but not quite understand what was happening. It was going to be a bittersweet event, but one to remember.

Scarlett heard chatter downstairs and hurried down. She was so caught up in yoga she lost track of time! The new Thetas would be moving in and she wasn't there to greet them. So far being President was going swimmingly. The first two people she recognized was Katiana and Annabelle. Annabelle held a special place in her heart since she was her little, but Katiana was just as precious. "Girls!" She ran over and gave them each a quick hug, Annabelle's with a squeeze. "How was your summer? Can I help you with anything?" She caught that Annabelle was going to go help her father and followed her. She quickly took the bag from Annabelle's hand with a smile that said 'let me do this.' With a big, friendly smile, she stuck out her hand to Mr. Everett, "Hello, Mr. Everett. I'm Annabelle's big sister, Scarlett. It's nice to finally meet you!"

The lukewarm water running down Brook's body felt amazing. His family and him had just spent the last two hours moving in and it was finally over. The manly labor and bossiness from Daisy did not make it easy. Brooks had done surfing earlier that morning and it was an amazing way to start out the year. The waves were perfect, the beach wasn't too crowded, and the sun was shining without being overwhelmingly hot. It felt almost as amazing as this shower does.

After finishing drying off, Brooks returned to his room to change when his phone rang. Caller I.D. said Uncle Tyler. Although the man has been a father figure, Brooks never wanted to call him Dad or Father. It felt wrong to fall him that. Brooks shrugged off the thought and answered the phone.

"Are you having a party already?" A young voice asked on the phone. Brook smiled, knowing it was his sister Daisy.

"You bet I am. It's gonna be amazing and you're not invited."

"You big meanie!"

Playful banter between the two of them was common. A few years ago, Brooks would've thought he'd never have this. Daisy was still in foster care and Brooks was stuck landlocked, away from her. As much as he loved his uncle and his partner, Daisy is Brooks's world. He'd do anything for her and being so far apart kills him. Sure, they have FaceTime and phone calls, but that's not the same as having them physically in front of you. Their conversation continued for a while until Uncle Tyler said they were about to enter a dead zone. The two siblings said good bye before hanging up. Feeling bored, Brooks took out his phone to text a few people.

Hey Lee! Are you on campus? It's boring at Beta right now.

Kissing his mother on the cheek, Khari thanks her for the ride and exits her car. Grabbing his duffel bag out of the boot, Khari hastens toward the Sigma house, excitement bubbling up. Shaking his head, Khari hated that he had missed his brothers so much, but there was no denying that he was thrilled he was about to see them. Just before he arrives at the door, Khari's phone goes off and he stops to check it. Smirking at Alea & Dee's response to his text. Quickly he types a reply, looking up briefly from his phone to notice River waltzing into the Sigma house to which Khari only rolls his eyes.

To: Angel Ally / Alea, Dee Dee / Deanna, Queen Kory / Korinna
Ouch Alea, guess I'll just have to refresh your memory when I see you, which better be tonight btw. I've missed u all.


Despite Kory not responding to his text, Khari still added her in the message because it was true, he had missed them all and that included her. Sending out one more text, Khari walks toward the door as he types.

To: Ginger / Annabelle
How was your summer? Do anything fun without me?


Khari was hesitant to send this text out, which he knew he shouldn't be. He was simply asking his friend how her summer was, nothing more. Who was he kidding? Khari knew it was something more. He'd seriously missed Annabelle's cute smiles and quirky personality over the summer, which only confused his feelings for her even more. Khari knew he'd be bad news and that Annabelle is far too good for him, so Khari will never say anything to her, but he can't help to way that he feels. Which is why he sends the text with bated breath, hoping that she responds.

Shaking off his nerves, Khari thinks to himself about how stupid he's being before realising he's been standing outside the Sigma house for a solid 3 minutes now. Placing a classic grin on his face, Khari walks over to the door and bangs it open, announcing his arrival. "Daddy's home!" He yells, as he heads for the kitchen where he knew the other guys would be. As he walks in, Khari is greeted by the sight of his little absolutely covered in snakes. "Jesus little bro, sometimes I wonder if there's any helping you." He teases, giving Cassius a light punch on the shoulder that had no snake wrapped around it. Turning to the rest of the guys, Khari lifts up his arms and says, "Boys!" The laddish behaviour already beginning to set right back in. "How were your summers? I wanna hear it all." He says toward no one in particular, giving anyone the chance to step in and speak. Khari leans back against a kitchen counter, his grin only growing as he looks at each of his brother's. God fucking damn I am happy to be home Khari thinks.

Alea chuckled her friend’s excitement, welcoming another hug from her before pulling back and watching her put on her new accessories. Alea was just going to drop the whole plantain thing, there was no changing Deanna’s mind about that; she’ll just have to watch over her food like a hawk and plan to eat those as soon as possible. She could eat a couple for breakfast; if she remembers to eat breakfast, or this conversation at all.

β€œYou look amazing Dee,” She grinned bouncing on the balls of her feet now,” I thought they’d be great for your DJ gigs, though I doubt you can see through them so forget that idea.” She chuckled to herself as she helped her with tying the bracelet on. β€œWe had a lot of supplies left over from the weddings and stuff so I made quite a few things for everyone. I’m glad you like it so much,” Alea smiled once more, reflecting Deanna’s own genuine smile. Her being happy made her twice as, as with any of her friends.

Speaking of them, her phone began to chime once more, breaking whatever heartfelt moment they were having and stealing away Alea’s attention. She picked it up to see Kori was on her way back, Khari replied, and Brooks was on campus. β€œKori’s coming back and Khari wants all of us over, the idiot,” she chuckled shaking her head as she relayed the replies the two of them got in their shared group messages before replying to Brooks as well.

TO: Flirty Idiot #1/ Khari
I’m sure you can. ;)

TO: Sister Mother/ Kori
Something greasy and American. I haven’t had anything like that all summer.
I’ll give you your stuff when you come in.


TO: Siren/ Brooks
Yeah, got here a few hours ago.
I have something for you from Jamaica, though you’ll need to come down here soon so you can enjoy it.
It’ll die soon, but I got it right before I headed to the airport so we got maybe 9 or 10 hours?


Can't pussyfoot my way out of this now. She sighed, having quickly sent and put away her phone before she could question all of her life choices with what she sent Brooks, instead choosing to focus back on Deanna.

He only arched his brow towards Jax, watching him sheepishly apologize with a deadpan expression,” Oh how you flatter me, but my summer wasn’t all that exciting; quite the opposite actually. It was torturously boring. The longest 2 months of my existence.” Despite his dramatic words his face barely changed, resting in that expressionless mask he’s known for as he watches Jax from the corner of his eye. He didn’t reply at the suggestion of moving, only looking back down to his phone and was about to go back to reading, if Jax didn’t practically drag him out of his seat.

So with a sigh, Cassius gently moved his snakes back into the small containers on the coffee table before following him into the kitchen, eyes still glued to the words on his phone while the three shared their pleasantries only speaking up at the mention of his name,” I’m already planning on running away, don’t give me more incentives old man.” That’s about as close as Cassius get to playing up this strange family roleplay, those three insist on playing.

The sound of the most bitter of the Sigmas entering the house finally had Cassius give up trying to read through his story with a huff of frustration as the most excitable came in right behind making a ruckus. β€œI just got a headache,” was all he muttered in reply as River made a beeline straight to the fridge, the smallest trace of disdain in his voice as he watched him before a punch to the shoulder brought him out of it,” It’s almost like I never left England.”

He pushed his glasses back up his nose and stood up straight once more,” Shall I start us off, then? My summer was boring as all hell, went back to Rye, bought snakes in London. Nothing else out of the ordinary happened. It’s exactly what you would expect to happen.” He sped through what happened in the past few months, clipping his words to save time and move on to someone else before leaning back on the wall. β€œNext.”

It didn't take long for CJ to get back to her and Kat eagerly set to responding to him while she awaited Annabelle's eventual return. Plus, it wasn't that difficult, being in wait. A few of her big sisters came by to check in on her, asking about how conditioning was going since most of the others knew what she was going through because Katiana told them in the group text that her schedule would be overrun by dance if all went well. She had no doubt that she would make it through try-out. All of the money her parents put into her career as such was definitely not going down the drain, even if her body was going to feel like shit for a few weeks as Katiana got back into the groove of things. It occurred to Kat only after the rush of it all and her earlier excitement to see her roommate, that she hadn't even reached out to her other bestie, which would not do at all.

To: CJ
Plz ur kidding me. Probs had a line up of girls tryin 2 get ur #

Summer was good tho. family cruise 2 spain. nothin much. u?


To: Ally Cat/ Alea <3
BAE!! HOW IS MY BAE??

By the time Annabelle had returned, Katiana had went to sneak two more chocolate-filled croissants since there was no such thing as too much chocolate in this world, no matter what nutritionists and the like had to say on the matter. She didn't need either, but she figured there was nothing wrong with treating herself when she was going to burn it and more off later. She had taken another bite of the first croissant when her friend plopped herself at Katiana's side. Kat grinned as a welcome, covering it with her hand as she hurried to chew the chocolate goodness in order to speak again. "Pretty good. Did the cruise from Barcelona like I told you of. Matter of fact, I've got all of the pictures on my phone if you still wanted to see them..." Kat trailed off then, using a napkin to wipe her hand before pulling her phone back out, idly inquiring, "What about you?"

"Don't tempt me cuz you know my dumb ass will try 'n wear 'em like I don't got no type of sense," Deanna warned, even though she had already decided that the glasses were going to be a necessary accessory the next time she was scheduled to DJ. She had said that she was willing to do so for the bonfire tomorrow, but the association that funded and was hosting it wanted their students to actually enjoy the festivities, not be a part of making everyone else enjoy it. Deanna hadn't had it in her to fret over it being a lost money opportunity. She was already on schedule to DJ a host of events as the year progressed, so she honestly had no qualms. Besides, it also meant that she didn't have to think about how fucked up she was tomorrow because she would have no limits.

Deanna was poised to make another comment, especially after Alea's explanation, but she was forced to note the sweet smile on the brown-skinned girl because oh, hello heart, nice to meet your acquaintance once again. There was a weird, too-happy-to-be-acceptable flutter in Deanna's stomach at being able to cause that expression, which made her, in turn, swallow down any words that might have been stuck in her throat. When Deanna had originally befriended Alea, she flirted with the same amount of zeal she possessed with everyone else, combined with her usual playful vitriol. It had been easy to see Alea as a friend last year and a potential Zeta sister. She had, as she was wont to do with most females, considered seeing if she could push her look at a possible make-out or even getting the girl into bed, but the latter had been scratched off the agenda because Lea would be a "baby" to the sorority, so she was off limits to a certain degree. But then Dee had to go and care about the girl, and for some reason, that threw her all the way off. She cared about Kory and a host of the other Zetas, but Lea made her feel weird shit. And Dee didn't process that well. She had honestly forgotten about it until her heart did the stupid skip-a-beat-like-a-sap shit a second ago. Luckily, she had texts from Kory and Jax to distract herself with.

To: To: Zaddy J (Jax)
Not mi fault u aint got wat it takes 2 keep a biiiihhh lol

To: To: Mama K, Lee Lee
ummmm i always wanna eat rofl

I SUPPORT DIS. Grease & fat ftw


"We should have burgers," Deanna declared once her text in their group chat with Kory was delivered, already picturing some onion rings. "Juicy, greasy burgers and onion rings. And ooohh, apple pie! Can't get any more American than apple pie."

Dialogue: #F52887
Kory had managed to slip out of the Sigma house before too many of the boys showed up. God knows that if they had all caught her there, she would have never been able to leave. As much as she didn't mind being around the wild pack of wolves, she had her own children to take care of. Being president was no easy task. Not that she ever expected to be.

As fate would have it, Kory received the responses from Alea and Deanna just as she was stepping out of her car and walking her way into the Five Guys location closest to campus. The girls wanted fattening and greasy, and one could never go wrong with a massive burger and fries. She couldn't help but feel a tad bit proud about guessing what her girls would want before they even said a thing. Thankfully, the place wasn't too packed, and miss president was able to get a ridiculous amount of burgers, fries, drinks and even a few desserts to accommodate for all taste buds. After what felt like an eternity, she was back in front of the Zeta estate. She smiled at the sight, already expecting the loudest, most extra welcome possible from her favorite girls on earth.

"Hello! Mama's here, and she brought greasy food!" the senior announced, her eyes scavenging her surroundings as she made her way to the kitchen to set down all the goods before she ended up dropping half of it. "Where are my welcome back hugs?" she called out again, assuming the girls would be in one of the rooms. She hoped they would hear her, otherwise she would have to go room to room to bring them all down herself. She paused for a moment, a large cup of Coke in her hand, while the other type out a quick reply to Nari's last text.

To: Nari <3
MSG: The door is always open for you babygirl :) and you've got some greasy fast food waiting for ya!

Her eyes glazed over a couple of names, stopping for a moment to respond to Arden before the group text between herself, Lea, Dee and Khari came into view. After a too-long pause, her thumb tapped away at the screen, deeming it safe to send Khari a response now, though she paused again before sending the second message.

To: Arden
MSG: Had to, my ass. You're lucky I'm occupied with the girls right now or you would be getting a mouthful!
MSG: [color=#f52887]Wat r u doing later tonight?

If Jake said he didn't feel like he was between a rock and a hard place, he would be a liar. He had already told Kat he was heading over to the Theta house, but he didn't want to leave his boys, as much as he never would admit he had an itching need to see his best friends for reasons he didn't quite feel like diving into at the moment. But it had been an entire summer away from sigma, and despite all the sarcastic comments and cheeky insults he often threw their way, he really did miss the wild bunch.

"Sorry to break it to you, old man, but if you and Kori divorce I'm sticking with her." the sophomore said, cheeky smirk in place. His elbow moved up to rest on Cassius', crystal blue eyes focused on his senior. "n' I'm taking Cass with me." his attention was brought out of their little pretend family life by Khari and River's arrivals. Jakub couldn't help but chuckle to himself at how completely opposites their entrances were. How one place such as this ended up housing so many different personalities was beyond him. ” Shall I start us off, then? My summer was boring as all hell, went back to Rye, bought snakes in London. Nothing else out of the ordinary happened. It’s exactly what you would expect to happen. Next”

Jakub let out a soft snort as his feet took his across the spacious kitchen, right up to their fridge. "You've sure got a way with words, Cass. Ever thought of writing a novel?" he teased, as he normally did anytime Cassius was around, meanwhile his blue orbs searched every inch of the fridge for something good to eat. His mind traveled back to Katiana's invitation. And let's face it, getting good food wasn't his only reason for wanting to go, but it was the only reason he would be giving the Sigma boys in hopes of avoiding their usual unnecessary comments about his and Kat's relationship. "I'm gonna dip for a bit, boys. I've got some free food waiting for me at the Theta's."

To: Kat
MSG: Any food left? I'm vry hungry n having some serious Kat withdraws.

Helping her little move in reminded Scarlett off her first move-in day. It could be described as tense at first, but became better later on. Her father canceled a week of his English classes in Italy just to help her move in. It was also the first time he would meet Scarlett's stepfather. The twins were left with a babysitter so it Scarlett's mother, her father, her stepfather, and her. The first meeting was very tense since her biological father and stepfather were sizing each other up. Mom was very neutral about her one night stand/father of her child. Jeffrey, her stepfather, was a traditional man so it upset him that Scarlett's birth father left the two of them and didn't take full responsibility. Her biological father was used to being the only man in her life, so that made him feel threatened. A competition began between the two of them. Scarlett and her mom didn't understand, must be a man thing. The two men would try to carry the most or argue over who would set up the lights or hang pictures. The whole thing was hilarious and it let Scarlett and her mom do some last minute shopping. They came back and everything was set up and two were laughing over something, and drinking beer. Scarlett doesn't know where they got the beer from, but the two men were best friends and her room was set up. It was a fond memory.

It was getting later in the day and many of the other girls made already moved in. Scarlett spied into the living room to see Annabelle and Katiana talking and snacking on the treats some of the upperclassmen got for the new residents. The older Thetas always try to do something nice for the freshman and sophomores. Dinner was coming up to and Scarlett was in charge of that. Pizza was perfect good her, but maybe they should do something a little nicer. A nearby Chinese restaurant gave special discounts to Thetas, because the owner used to be a Theta and Scarlett was known to come by at two in the morning for fried rice. Annabelle would love it since Chinese is a favorite. Katiana might want something else though. There's an iHop nearby, which is one of Katiana's favorite. "Hey girls! Do we want to order in from Mr. Chen's or go to iHop for dinner? We're not going immediately. I just wanted you all to think on it! If we order in, I think Kappa is doing is doing the same, so maybe a little get together with our sibling house!" Scarlett still needed to call in at home, Mom's orders. Plus, plenty of new texts needed to be answered and she needed to run her idea by Harry!


To: Second Best Doctor / Harry
Is the doctor in? ;P
Did your house plan on eating in tonight? Theta might be doing the same so would you like to have a little get with your favorite sorority? I'll buy dessert!

To: STUDY BUDDY <3 / Nari
You are always welcome! We might be eating out or staying here. It's unknown, but I'll text you details! I missed you! How was your summer?

Brooks couldn't help pacing as he wondered throughout the Beta house. He said hi and had a few conversations with some of the nicer guys, but it was only to be polite. Brooks knew he wasn't very popoular among the other brothers in the house. Most of them wouldn't give him a second glances if he hadn't been accepted. He wasn't pedigree like some of them or a legacy. He's heard stories that some of his Beta 'brothers' have been spreading behind his back. They say that not only is B.S. is his initials, but it's also the reason he was chosen for Beta. Rumors say that he was a charity case, accepted only to make the fraternity look better. Everyone knows he's adopted by his Uncle and his boyfriend, but Brooks said it was because his parents passed away when he was young. He'd rather be known as an orphan instead of a 'crack kid' like in elementary school. Hopefully, his lie won't come to the light. The Betas already think he's lower in status so that would be putting his at literal bottom of the totem pole. He knows he is only higher, because his Big is the President. Brooks still didn't understand, but luck chose him for some reason, only the coming year will tell.

"Home, sweet, home!" A familiar voice called out. Brooks was quick to hurry to the entrance. He knew that voice anywhere. It was the voice of someone he considered a friend. Maddox was one of the few great people in Beta. He didn't care about who Brooks was attracted too, though he would voice his opinion regardless. It was nice to have a friend in the house who was lax about his sexuality since all the others acted scandalized by his interested in the opposite gender.

"I'm glad you're here. No one interesting or nice is here." Brooks didn't care if the other Betas heard him. He knew what they said behind his back. "Want to do anything? I told Eliza I would help her unpack and I haven't seen Abigail yet so could we head over to Alpha?" Brooks desperately wanted to get out of the house. He needed cool people to be around. Speaking of cool people, he felt his phone vibrated.


From: Arden The Awesome
Hey, you on campus? How was your summer broski.
Okay. That was weird, ignore that please <3

To: Broski/Arden
It's now your new name on my phone so I guess we're both weird!
Summer was great! Although, my surf spot in Cali is now private. I learned that the hard way. Handcuffs are not fun, my friend. I'll give you more details later. I told Eliza I would help her move in. :(


From: Princess/Eliza
Can't tell if you're joking, but if you could come help me I'd be so grateful. I might even be nice.

To: Princess/Eliza
NICE! I've always wanted to see that. I'll be there soon. Maddox might be coming too.

From: Music Maker / Alea
Yeah, got here a few hours ago.
I have something for you from Jamaica, though you’ll need to come down here soon so you can enjoy it.
It’ll die soon, but I got it right before I headed to the airport so we got maybe 9 or 10 hours?

To: Music Maker / Alea
A gift for me? Awesome! I gotta help some of the Alphas move in, but I'll hurry.

From: Picasso/Annabelle
I'd definitely rather be drawing than unpacking. See you later?

To: Picasso/Annabelle
Sweetness! I did some sketches that I wanted to show you.

SATURDAY AUGUST 26TH || BACK-TO-SCHOOL BONFIRE || 9:15 PM
The significance of the Fulton University Back-to-School bonfire was that it was originally meant for one to cast into the flames the troubles of the year before; whatever it was that one felt was holding them back, whether it be a relationship they couldn't let go of on their own or anxieties that crippled them academically when all one needed to do was have faith, it needed to be thrown into flames. It was supposed to bring relief and that relief was found in throwing away the jacket an ex gave you or even a bracelet from a friendship you thought would never end. Don't let the alcohol and tomfoolery fool you. It was supposed to mean something and to some, it still does.

Nevertheless, each year the bonfire is hosted at the estate of an undisclosed sponsor - some believe it is an alumna, but until proven otherwise, take advantage of being in a mansion that most won't ever actually afford, #sorrynotsorry - where the beach property is mostly used for celebrations. Students also like to occupy the spacious home as there is a DJ inside, as well as inside, and food. Most have already arrived at this annual festive event filled with drunken hook-ups, wild dancing, tricks and the like while others are still on the way. At the end of the day, though, it's very rare that a night like this doesn't end in a fight or two, especially with the Greek organizations in attendance...

Khari had spent the entirety of his night talking to and catching up with all of his friends, not only was he filled in on all his brothers shenanigans but Cornelius came over which was nice because even though he wasn't an official Sigma, Khari always thought he was far more Sigma material than he's ever been Kappa material. But alas there seemed to be nothing Khari could do to change his friends mind, so he simply enjoyed the guys company instead. The tales he was told about everyone's summers both made Khari chuckle and also, in some cases, even managed to shock him because of the things his friends managed to get themselves into.

It wasn't until the early hours that Khari finally called it a night and said adios to his buddies. Heading off to bed, he had been meaning to send out a few more texts but as soon as he lay down Khari fell straight asleep.

- - - -

Khari didn't wake up until 12pm the next afternoon and had spent much of his time in his joggers and a white tee, chilling around the house. He knew he didn't have to go out until the evening, which was when the bonfire would take place, so he felt no need to hurry out of his comfy clothes. More holiday stories were shared and a lot more laughter occurred before Khari looked at the clock and realised it was getting closer and closer to the time they were supposed to be leaving.

It wasn't until seven that Khari finally began to actually get ready. He jumped in the shower, shaved and got dressed into a casual, yet very much so his style, outfit for the evening. Spraying himself with a little aftershave, Khari winks at his reflection before deciding to check on how the other guys were getting on. He had just assumed that they would all be going up together as a frat.

Walking down the hallway that led him to Jax's room, Khari stopped a few steps from his friend's door to send out a couple text, just to make sure that everyone he wanted to see and catch up with would be going tonight.

To: Angel / Alea
You & your girls coming tonight? Wouldn't be a party without the Zetas ;)

To: Ginger / Annabelle
Sucks we didn't get to catch up last night. Hang @ the bonfire?

To: Queen Kory / Korinna
Saw you'd bailed before I got to the Sigma house :/ See you tonight?


Happy with those messages, Khari hits send and continues on his way to the Sigma president's room. Knocking loudly, Khari calls out "Hey pretty boy, you ready yet?" Leaning his shoulder against the doorframe as he waits for a response - most likely one just as snarky as his own. Khari and Jax had been friends for quite a long time now and had a very particular, and very sarcastic, way of talking to each other.

BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! Jax literally rolled out of his bed when his alarm clock went off. He groaned as he lifted his head from the floor. NINE A.M! "What the hell kind of- shit." He completely forgot he volunteered to help with the freshman orientation. Normally, he would have slept until A. He finally woke up or B. One of the boys woke him up. These freshman orientations were lame as hell, but housing gave bonus in pay if anyone from their office helped with the event. Jax's family wasn't desperate for cash, but Jax would rather wake up at 9 to help with some event than ask his Mom, and especially not his Dad. Jax made quick work of changing into one of his school T-shirts and some jeans before leaving for the school's amphitheater. Hopefully, the freshman wouldn't suck as much as last year.
~
Nope, they are even worse this year. He understands that directions in a new place can be challenging, but when the same freshman comes back FIVE TIMES TO GO TO THE SAME PLACE... It riled Jax's nerves. If it was a girl trying to be cute in asking then that's cool, but that kid was dumb as rocks. Returning to the house was amazing! Jax just chilled in the living room of the house, besting most the few members at Call of Duty. It was a good bonding experience and the holiday stories these young bucks shared were spectacular. Whether it be because they were stupid stories, funny stories, or a combination, the new guys seemed to be prime Sigma members.

It was around six when Jax decided to finally get ready for bonfire. Some of the guys laughed when he said he wanted to get ready early, but Jax reminded them that good appearances get the girls, or boys, to pay attention. It was comical how their eyes grew before the little newbies rushed off to prepare. Jax took a shower, in his private bathroom, before debating on what to wear. It was going to be near a beach and the house had a pool so swim trunks were the smart approach. However, it was unlikely he'd go into the water. Jax isn't shy so he could just strip if he felt like getting wet. He choose a comfy pair of jeans, his slide sandals (which were popular for it's litness), and a black tank. Jax added a yellow flannel, because why not? Plus, gotta rep those Greek colors! He dabbed some cologne on before sending out a few messages to his special people.

To: My Juliet / Katrina
I hope I get to see you tonight. I might have to steal you away. :3

To: Shoulda Been Sigma / Cornelius
Ready to party Sigma style?

To{Group Text}: Songbird / Nari, Baby Momma #1 / Deanna, Future Mrs. King / Korinna, Baby Lee
The lovely ladies of Zeta better show themselves! I expect the best of my favorite sorority!


Satisfied with his messages, Jax checked himself over one last times. "Hey pretty boy, you ready yet?" Jax snickered at his best friend's remark. It wasn't common for any of the guys to be sarcastic with him, but Khari was the only one to get away with it regularly. "I'm glad you know who's the better looking one!" Jax hollered back. He'd pay for that remark later, but tonight was a time for a party! Jax opened his door and took a second to check him out. "Although, I'm not the only hot one tonight." Jax winked then wiggled his eyebrows at Khari before heading down the stairs to the entryway. While Jax is only interested in the opposite sex, he doesn't mind flirting with his own. It gets him in trouble some times, but it's just his personality. "I was thinking we could load up my car with us, Jake, Cass, and River then head out. Sound good?"

Brooks felt happy with how he spent the rest of his move in day. Helping the girls at Alpha was better than spending any more time at Beta. Some of the girls didn't understand why he was a Beta too so it wasn't too different, but Abigail and Eliza made up for it. Katrina was there too, but Brooks and her never got along. There wasn't any animosity between them; they were just very different people. The evening was fun and it was sad to see it end.

Brooks spent most of the next running errands, checking in with his off campus job, and, of course, surfing. The last two were basically the same thing since he had a lesson at eleven. A thirteen year old girl who didn't seem all that interested until she found she couldn't stand on her board in the water. She became determined and by the end of the lesson, she could stay on it for the whole ride. It was moments like these that made Brooks happy with his career choice. He gets paid to do what he loves and teach people the wonderfulness that is surfing. It bummed Brooks out when he thought about giving all this up. He'd still be able to surf, but not as much once he graduated. Architecture or Marine Biology? The same choice he should've made last year. Both careers would be fun and exciting, but choosing was not what Brooks wanted. It wasn't like double majoring was impossible, but it would take up a lot of time. He sighed as he walked into the Beta house. "Why can't I make good decisions?"

After a hot shower, Brooks put on a pair of swim trunks for tonight's event. The location was sweet since it was right on the water, and had a pool. Brooks would be in one or the other before the night ended so it was best to be prepared. He was still debating on what shirt when someone spoke. Brooks jumped, not expecting it. "Well look at you, sexy Betsy." Brooks rolled his eyes before turning to his favorite Beta. Maddox was always a flirt and while Brooks was cool with it, he didn't fall for his charms. Brooks followed one simple rule with his fraternity brothers, 'don't bang your brothers.' It sounded like a disaster waiting to happen so he avoided it. "I swear your mission in life is to see me naked." Brooks teased. He decided on a simple, black tank and some flip flops to complete his look. Brooks wasn't trying to impress anyone so his typical surf boy look should be fine. Speaking of impressing people, Brooks returned and sent some texts before Maddox and him headed out.

To: Broski/Arden
I've got your back, broski! Try not to get super wasted? Don't need a repeat of freshman year :)

To: Music Maker / Alea
See ya at the bonfire? I need my favorite Zeta!

To: Picasso/Annabelle
I'll see you at the bonfire? Us artists have to stick together!

To: Princess/Eliza
Care to let me escort you to the royal bonfire, princess?


With his messages sent, Brooks returned his attention to Maddox. "Did you want to carpool with the Alpha girls or are we all just going to meet up?" Brooks leaned against his dresser, waiting for the older Beta.

The rest of the night was a blur honestly. She remembered Kori coming home and eating a lot of greasy food, everyone sharing their stories about the summer and Alea giving the rest of her sisters their gifts she brought back with her. What she doesn't remember is when she actually got to her bed once more. All she knows i that she woke up not wanting to move; and so she didn't. She drifted between sleep and consciousness for what felt like hours before her bladder screamed at her to get up and even then she sat in her bed for another 20 minutes before actually getting up and wandering to the bathroom.

By the time she was out of the bathroom it was... pretty late. She had to squint her eyes to focus on the clock on her phone, to make sure she didn't read it long. 3:30 huh? Good thing she didn't have classes or anything. Was there anything happening today actually? She honestly couldn't remember at first, but the texts piling up in her phone reminded her real quick.

From: Flirty Idiot #1
You & your girls coming tonight? Wouldn't be a party without the Zetas ;)

From: King
The lovely ladies of Zeta better show themselves! I expect the best of my favorite sorority!

From: Siren
See ya at the bonfire? I need my favorite Zeta!


Oh yeah the bonfire, she almost forgot that was going on. Her bed seemed more attractive at the moment than socializing and potentially running into people she rather not talk to. But getting to dance with her friends and not having to worry about her
family trying to set her up with one of them quickly won out.

To: Flirty Idiot #1/ Khari
Msg: You're right it wouldn't be. Make sure to save me a dance~

To: King/ Jax
Msg: Of course! wouldn't dream on missing it.

To: Siren/ Brooks
Msg: Yep! I'll be there.
Msg: We both forgot the present it seems.
Msg: I was going to give you a thing of Luminous Lagoon water but it's stopped glowing.
Msg: Good thing I made something in case that happened.


She would bring everyone's gifts with her there and give them out there but a bonfire is not the place to be giving out gifts. They could get lost, or worse, destroyed. She'll just have to remember to hand them out later. Ugh, remembering... not her strong suit. With nine hours to kill, Alea spent most of the time combing her hair still tangled from sleeping while watching videos online and snacking before getting ready. She took her time, lounging in the bath and singing to herself while she did her makeup; nothing much seeing as it would be night and she'll be next to a fire, but some gloss and liner. She didn't think too much about her clothes either, just a black bralette bikini and shorts with a much too large black mesh shirt and wedges. It was something simple that she would usually wear on the island so she saw nothing wrong with it for a bonfire.

By the time she was ready it was 20 minutes before the shuttles left, and while she could probably ask one of her sisters for a ride, she'd rather have a few more minutes to her sober self before she got illegally wasted. Her head bobbed to the music blasting from her earplugs, as she scrolled through her phone deciding on texting Kat who texted her during her food coma.

Katty/ Katiana
Msg: Hey girl! I'm great!
Msg: Sorry for the late reply. I died for a moment there.
Msg: I hope my lovely Kat comes to the bonfire~

The sun was already setting by the time Cassius left his room. He's been up since noon tending to his snakes and reading at his desk, lounging in one of his suits as always. He knew today was the bonfire and while he should've been looking through his plethora of suits to find something suitable for a beach bonfire and mansion he was sitting there...killing time in leisure. There was no reason for it. He could very well stress and waste his energy and patience looking for clothes, but he decided to relax and save all that up for the people he will have to rub elbows with. How draining. Still, he was going to go. He was still hindered by the frustration of home to not go and look for a little thing to relieve himself, and who was he to turn down a chance of some fun?

When he did finally leave his room, he made a beeline for the shower, before taking his time again, the water going cold by the time he left the stall, before once again retreating in his room. The lack of an adjoint bathroom was frustrating at best. There wasn't much he had in his closet that would fit into the theme this party had so he didn't even bother looking into it and went straight to the drawers to pull out his more rarely worn clothes before settling on a simple pale and colorful striped button up and linen shorts in case he felt like swiming; definitely not his usual attire but not bad.

By the time he walked out into the hall, the other boys were finishing up too Jax and Khari bantering in the president's doorway with Jake leaving in quite a fluster. "Yes girls, you're both pretty. Are you going to sleep together or shall we find more participants?" He butted in arching a brow over the rim of his glasses before continuing to the living room," four out of five will be carpooling them; unless River also decides to find his own ride."
