Arden has inherited a large mass of his appearance from his father. Being born a blond, in an all blond family. Arden wished to be something different,
someone not easily confused with his father, so he dyed his hair black. He keeps it cut short, but it's long enough it still gets into his face. He seems to be in the general area for his height and seems to be somewhat lanky. Arden's eyes are one of his favorite features in an honesty, they seem to change colors and shades with his various emotions. They are normally in the blue shades and tones, but have a tendency to go into the greens when he's angry.


S T Y L E

The style that Arden has, is somewhat "edgy"? He has one constant accessory, his beanie, which was gifted to him by his elder brother. He tends to dress in hoodies or jackets of dark colors and graphic t-shirts. He simply just has a love for basic style, but he does know how to dress himself up for proper occasions.

Q U I R K SX:XO D D I T I E SX:XH A B I T S

✦ Arden has the habit of drawing on himself when he has nothing better do to do, he also seems to do it more when he's nervous about events he's at. ✧ Arden has ADHD, and it seems to affect him in his attention span. He can be staring you in the face and thinking about fifty other things.✦ He carries around a lighter with a unicorn on it, he doesn't smoke (often), he keeps it because he likes the appearance of fire emanating from the flame. ✧ He seems to have the habit of biting his lip when he's in an uncomfortable situation. ✦

G R E A T E S TXJ O Y S

✦The Kappas: Obviously being a Kappa Alpha, Arden has developed a close bond with his fraternity brothers. Initially finding the whole thing pointless, and only doing it to please his father. He seems to have gained a decent relationship with each of them. He views them more as brothers than his actual ones. ✧ Coffee: Arden LOVES coffee, he has it at least five times a day. All various styles, and temperatures. He's truly in love with the are of the brew. ✦ His music: Now, it seems odd for a Kappa Alpha to be majoring in music. But Arden is an intelligent male, he is smart enough to have any major, but his love for music gives him a drive. He seems to be mocked at for it, but it doesn't bother him. His music is all he needs. And coffee, and some of his Kappa brothers.✧His father: Despite their brief falling out after Arden told his father he was gay, he still holds his father the dearest of his family members. His father and him, have a far closer relationship and are often talking about Arden's life. He finds his father to be a source of his motivation, an aspiration.✦

G R E A T E S TXF E A R S

✦Losing his father: Arden's greatest fear is losing his father to anything, not just death, but making a decision that will ruin him and his father's relationship. He is constantly being cautious of decisions he makes, which is why he tends to come off as a wuss to other people, or a party pooper. Someone needs to get this boy some help. ✧His music never taking off: He has this underlying fear that he's not good enough to make it to bigtime music, he has this feeling that everyone just pities him and says he's great. He just fears never being able to reach his dream.✦ Clowns: Yeah, Arden strongly dislikes clowns. If he sees them, he goes into a panic mode and will start to hyperventilate and freak out.✧ *Losing the Kappas*: He feels like at some point, his personality will get the Kappas to hate him and he'll be removed from the house. He doesn't want that. I don't think anyone does.✦

Someone once told Arden, he looks like his father, and the similarities stop there. They aren't wrong.

Arden is reliable, when people ask him to do things he's there for him. People can always count on Arden because he strongly hates letting people down. He doesn't like the weird feeling it gives him if you ask him he'd rather run down the street in the nude. He fee's as if being reliable is one of the things he can do well. Arden is also very caring, raised to treat everyone with kindness. He really does care about people, but his slight inability to understand emotions, makes it appear as if he doesn't. He just, he's rather awkward in times of emotional need, and he doesn't know the proper outlets for his own. Just simply because, he was raised (his mother's influence) to move on with things and ignore them when emotions are involved.

He is very hot-headed, easy to irritate. The one emotion he is familiar with is pure anger, and hatred. These emotions he only feels towards his mother for her leaving. He seems to become even more irritated when people mention his father, who was a Beta Gamma Omega, and how he's "fallen" from grace being a Kappa.
He also gets extremely heated when people talk bad about his house. Arden's tongue gets him into a lot of trouble most times, due to his sarcastic and sardonic nature, he just tends to make enemies by small little comments. In an odd combination Arden is both patient and impulsive at the same time. This is often seen, when he can sit there for hours and listen to his Kappa brothers talk about their lives. Yet, the minute someone else talks Arden becomes impatient and sort of socially awkward making loud tapping noises on desks etc;

All in all, Arden's a good kid.

Pasadena, California

H I S T O R Y

Born to a loving and happy couple at the time, soon after Arden's birth things got sour.

Arden was born and raised for half of his life in sunny Pasadena, California. His parents Amelia and Adam, both super busy with their jobs as CEOs and his mother being a full-time Model / Game Show host, Arden was primarily raised by nannies. He didn't mind, he knew his parents loved him. They just were so busy making his life better, they couldn't be in it. This thought had been drilled into his head. His primary nanny, Jesse, took him to school, fed him, and put him to bed each night.
Arden slowly began to think of the man as an older brother.

As time went on, Arden's mother was home more and more often. Taking him to guitar lessons and vocal lessons due to the boy's interest in music. The adults had fired Jesse due to his mother having lost her job and they had to cut back. His father would spend time away for weeks at a time. At ten years old, Arden didn't understand. His mother often had another man over "Uncle Chris." she told him to call her. He would bring over his daughter, Rebecca, who was just a baby. Arden didn't seem to mind, the three year old seemed to entertain him.

One night, his father came home from a trip, to find Chris and Amelia in bed together. Arden, eleven years old now, seemed scared. What was going on? He didn't understand. His father would pick him up and they'd walk out of their home, and that was the last time they saw Pasadena. Adam moved both him and Arden to Miami, where a branch of his business was and he could run it from there. He told Arden that "mommy and daddy aren't together anymore", he just accepted it.
By then, he realized his mother "left" their family in a sense that she gave up on it. From then on, he had a hatred for the woman. Around fifteen, Arden discovered his sexuality. Leaving a giant gap between him and his father for three years, which after that the reconnected. Arden had elected to go to his father's Alma Mater,
Fulton. He spent a year there loving it, and joined the Kappa Alpha house from Freshmen year. Yet, he still gets comments or questions about his father. When will they ask him about him?

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.

Annabelle twitched her foot in the well. Her dad was singing Africa by Toto for the tenth time. The already eleven hour drive was taking even longer. It took her a moment to realised that not everywhere was as small as East Ridge. The 20,000 strong population had always seemed huge when she was a kid, but now she spent her year in Miami and suddenly East Ridge felt even smaller. She looked out the passenger side window at the cars crawling by. There was more than one university in Florida, but Annabelle still couldn't help but wonder how many of them contained students bound for Fulton. She might be biased, but it was the best in Florida.

"Dad?"

"Hmm?"

"Do you think everyone had the same idea as us?"

"Looks that way."

Her phone buzzed in her pocket and she wriggled it out from beneath her seatbelt.

From: KitKat
Just moved in. Where r u roomie?


To:KitKat
On my way. We hit traffic :( Save me some food if you can


"Who you texting sweetheart?"

Annabelle looked up from her phone to her dad. Richard Everett was a good dad, she realised. A really good one. And he got bonus points for still being around. There were a tonne of kids back in East Ridge who didn't have one parent or the other. She was lucky she still had hers, even if she had to endure the girls at high school declaring him a DILF. "Just Kat. She's my roommate. You'd like her."

The traffic had finally started moving again as they rolled along the Florida roads. "Kat, huh?" Annabelle braced herself. She knew that tone. "Sure it's not a boy?" he teased.

"I have plenty of guy friends, dad, just no boyfriend. Or girlfriend. You know I'd tell you and mom if there was."

Richard reached over and squeezed her hand. "I know sweetheart, we just want you to be happy."

Annabelle smiled and squeezed his hand back. "I know. Besides, I won't get hurt. There's too many people wanting to protect me. Apparently I'm adorable and innocent and that makes people wanna look after me. You don't need to worry about anyone getting close enough to hurt me. Nick sieves out the creeps anyway."

"Nick's the gay kid, right?"

"Yes dad. Nick is the gay kid." Annabelle had to stifle a laugh. Nick wasn't the only gay student she knew, but it had been the first thing she blurted out when her dad had asked if they were an item. The revelation that Nick was only into guys had seemed to put her dad's concerns to rest.



They finally rolled onto campus, albeit a lot later than they anticipated when they had set off. Annabelle staggered out of the car, just grateful for the opportunity to finally stretch her legs out. She popped the trunk open and dragged a suitcase out. Annabelle practically skipped up the path and left her case in the hallway. The living area was filled with the aroma of coffee and fresh baking. Annabelle inhaled deeply. This felt like home. She spotted Kat across the room and ran up to her. "Kat!" Her squeal was the only warning the girl got before Annabelle threw her arms around Katiana.

Harry pinned the final poster on his wall and stood back. He looked around the room. After years of sharing, it felt weird to have a room to himself at university. Nice, but weird. He ran a hand through his hair, dishevelling it even more. This was his final year. He was president and all this would be over very soon. A few of the older Kappas were already here and Harry figured he should probably go down and get things ready for the newer members arriving.

"Get down off the counter James," he said as he came into the kitchen. He tapped his phone screen. "Save that behaviour for when you're drunk." Despite what the other presidents might think, he wasn't a complete killjoy, but people did have to eat off there in the next few hours. Harry curled his toes under his feet as he fired off a few texts.

To: Nick
Do you think anyone knew that James liked to dance on counters before he joined? Also, where are you? I need my right hand man.


To: Arden
You doing ok?


Harry flicked on the coffee machine, smiling as the machine gurgled into life. They needed a new one. A better one, like an industry standard one. His boys deserved it. "Guys, how would you feel about a new coffee machine?"

"Can we get an X-box?"

Harry sat on the edge of the counter, his bare feet swinging. "You coulda brought your own kidda."

"Then yes, we would like a coffee machine."

To: Nick
Also I have made an executive decision as president. We're getting a fancy ass coffee machine. It shall be our legacy

Katrina brushed her hair over her shoulder and took a sip of her coffee. There was buzz about the campus as she strutted across the courtyard, and it wasn't just from the caffeine. Freshman were moving into halls. She tilted her head as she observed them. Was I really that skittish? She probably was. She would have to ask Jasmine. Katrina spotted Jax across the way and had to suppress a laugh. She didn't giggle over boys, but poor Jax looked like he was about to kill one of the freshman.

Katrina soon lost interest in Jax's suffering and headed across campus to the Alpha house. She had scouted a few girls who looked like they might be Alpha material with a little time, but it was far too soon to be worrying the newbies about rush week, That would all come in time. A few of the girls were already around the house when she arrived. She waved to them and said a few polite hi's before she went into the house. Her heels clicked against the floor as she bounced up the stairs. It was a skill that had taken years of practice, moving quickly in heels without spilling her coffee. She had nearly perfected it.

Katrina smiled as she saw her door sign again. She was sharing with Jasmine, which she was fine with. She would have been happy with Abigail as well, but she was closer to Jasmine, the elder girl having been assigned her big sister when Katrina rushed. She threw her bag on her bed and kicked her heels off. She sat down elegantly and tapped the screen of her phone.

To: Maddox
Hey handsome, how was summer?

To:Jax
Please tell me you didn't kill any of the freshman. It would look terrible on your record.

To: Jasmine
Please tell me you're arriving soon. No one exciting is here yet :(

"Yes, Sir. I'll talk to you later. Tell mother that I love her." Cornelius muttered on the phone as he ended the conversation with his father. A soft sigh escaped over his lips as he knew exactly what he was doing by spiting his father and joined one of the best fraternities on campus, Kappa Alpha. Today was move in day for just about everyone and that's exactly what he was doing right about now as he slung his bag over his shoulder then picked up a small box with his smaller belongings placed inside. With a turn of his heel, he started to waltz towards the Kappa Alpha house though in order to get there, he had to pass by the Sigmas household then made a note to text his buddies, Jax and Khari, later on to see what they were up to. But for right now, many people that he passed eyed him flirtatiously and he could not help but to return the flirtatious glares. Cornelius even stopped to have a conversation or two with people that made him stop, just to say hey and nothing too serious.

After walking a few more steps, he was finally inside of the Kappa Alpha house and immediately went up to his room and just threw his belongings onto his bed. While he wanted to get ready and set his room up, he heard a few voices downstairs and decided to see who was already present within the house. Cornelius turned the corner that led into the kitchen and saw the president of the chapter, Harry, sitting on the counter and saw another member of the fraternity present, as well. "Dude. Some of us prepare our meals there." Cornelius said with a laughter following those words as he stood beside him now. "Anyways, how have you been, man? Anything new with you?" Cornelius asked as he went over towards the fridge and grabbed himself a bottled water then took a small sip from it. He felt his phone vibrate inside of his pocket and heard it chime as he sat his bottled water down onto the counter beside Harry and pulled his phone out of his pocket, seeing it was Nick sending him a text to see if he needed anything.

To: Nick <3
Where was this message at whenever I needed help with my luggage?! lol

But no, I'm good, stud. Just get your sexy ass here! :D


Cornelius sent the text with a smile as he loved to tease Nick and flirt with him constantly. It was not for attraction purposes though, it was simply just to get underneath his skin a little bit. While he had his phone in hand, he decided to send out a few more texts towards people.

To: AJ :)
Dude, where are you? Need help with your luggage or something?


To: Maddox
Gym later? Not that we really need it but just an excuse to see you.


To: Jax & Khari
What's up, fellas? Will it be safe for me to visit the Sigma house soon? lol


He sent out those messages but there was one in particular that was he was definitely going to send out. It was one towards Katiana and he could not wait to see her sometime today or later that night. But her message was going to be the last one that he sent out since he had to give his fingers a little bit of a rest right about now.

To: Kat <3 :D
Hey there. You on campus yet?

To : Mama Kori <3 ( Korinna )
Unless you count me for getting almost arrested over the summer, then there's nothing to worry about :D

To : The Guy I Was Assigned To By Fulton ( Harry )
Yeah, bout to head out for Fulton any minute now. See you at the house?

To : Princely Charming ( Nate )
Yo, how was your summer Charming? Haven't seen you in a little. When you're not hanging with the Fresh Douches of Fulton (and I say that lovingly) we should get some coffee or tea.

All in all, Arden probably shouldn't have told Korinna he almost got arrested. It wasn't his fault, more like his friend Alex's fault. But that's a story for later. The brunet looked at himself in the mirror, dressed in nothing but Scooby-Doo pajama bottoms, and his beanie, he would shrug and walk downstairs to see his father before getting ready. Walking downstairs he could hear his father talking on the phone to someone....his mother he guessed. "Listen Amelia, I already told you Arden doesn't want to speak to you. You have another child to daunt and bicker over, you don't need the one you almost ruined," yeah definitely his mom. He shrugged, his father wasn't exactly wrong.

Arden and his mother didn't see eye-to-eye on several things. One thing being, Arden wasn't fond of her just moving on to a new family like it was nothing. Sure, he got over it, but he didn't have to like it. She made big deals about his younger half-sister,
Rebecca, and made time for her. So he was a tad bit jealous.

Clearing his throat his father saw him now standing by him and hung up the phone. "You wearing that to your first day of your sophomore year? Not judging, just asking," the older man asked with a laugh. Arden shrugged, it wasn't exactly unlike
him to do such a thing. But he stared at his father and spoke. "Um, nah, I have an outfit planned out. What Amelia want?," he would turn to the cabinets and get a box of cereal down. Pouring himself a bowl, without milk. He despised it. Eating his dry cereal his father, laughed and walked away getting his things ready for work. The twenty-year-old waved a goodbye with a full mouth and finished his cereal.

To : Corn Dog ( Cornelius )
So....uh Kori might kill me. If I die, my favorite beanie goes to you <3. See you at the house. And nah, I'll be there in a few.

After sending the quick text to Cornelius, he walked back upstairs and would proceed to get read. Getting dressed, he would put his beanie of the hair he should have brushed, but chose not to. Grabbing the keys to his own vehicle, and sat down in the driver's seat. Starting it, he would begin to drive to Fulton, playing a song at the loudest volume. As he did he would begin to sing. "So I'm sorry to my unknown lover. Sorry that I can't believe that anybody ever really, starts to fall in love with me." As Halsey's song played on, his mind lingered on a fling from last year, Maddox. Despite how angry the male had made Arden, he held this soft spot from him. Not deleting his phone number, he would silently ignore his urge to text the male and pull into the Fulton University parking lot.

The energy around here had been crazy, taking his two suitcases, his guitar case, and his laptop bag, he would walk to the Kappa house, not a very far walk from where he parked. Walking up to the door he'd open it and scream.

"I'm home bitches!"

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.

"I missed you too."Annabelle let the scent of cocoa butter fill her nose as she hugged Katiana before she pulled away. No amount of texting and Skype calls could make up for actually being next to her friend again. She turned to see Aja stood by them. She remembered Katiana talking about her family a lot in freshman year, her sister especially. It was good to finally put a face to a name. Before she could say 'hi' to Aja, Kat was pointing her attention over to her dad. Annabelle turned her head, her lips curling into a polite smile as she waved to Mr. Brokenborough.

Annabelle turned back to Aja. She could see the similarity between her and Katiana, more in the way they stood and the drive in their eyes. The way the light reflected off Aja's cheekbones had Annabelle itching to get hold of her pencils and start sketching again. Annabelle held out her hand to Aja. "Nice to meet you. Kat told me a lot about you. Feels like I already know you." Annabelle stopped talking, she could herself beginning to babble. She always babbled around pretty people. Lord knew there were plenty of people who could attest to that. Sometimes it felt like the entire student population of Fulton had been pulled out of a modelling agency's books.

There was a scuffle at the door. Annabelle turned to see her dad carrying the entire contents of the car through the door. "And that's my dad. I'll be back in a second. Nice meeting you," she added to Aja as she jogged over to her dad and took some of the bags from him.

Harry checked the messagge on his phone, chuckling to himself at Nick's response. James was definitely an oddball, but then could anyone in Kappa really say they were normal? College did crazy things to people. "Dude. Some of us prepare our meals there." Harry looked up from his phone, his face a picture of innocence. He was trying so hard not to crack a smile at Cornelius.

"These are clean on today."

"Anyways, how have you been, man? Anything new with you?"

Harry let out a small laugh. "Well, one of the kids at the health center has a crush on me. I think her mom does too." Harry shrugged and took a sip of his coffee. "She's only human. Anyway, how you been since I last saw you?"

"I'm home bitches!"

Harry looked up and made a happy noise as he realised who's voice that was. "And here I thought he would never come back," he muttered. Arden was distant at the best of times, more so than Harry could be. That was probably why Brendon, their previous president, had chosen Harry to keep an eye on the sophomore. Before he could say anything else, Nick's arms were around him. Harry returned the hug with equal enthusiasm. "Hey."


Nick pulled away and began rummaging in the drawer next to him. Harry watched with idle curiousity. "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?"

"Next draw down, big guy. And it's the first night back, we can cook another day. I have presidenty things to plan, like getting a new coffee machine." He clapped Nick's shoulder. He had missed Nick. Living in a different state to his best friend absolutely sucked. He slid down from the counter and drained the last of his coffee before jumping onto Nick's back. "Arden! Your room's opposite mine. James, yours is down the hallway, everyone else, I can't be expected to remember everything." Harry squeezed Nick's shoulder. "Don't ever leave me again." He was being silly, he knew that, but he had genuinely missed Nick, more so than he had missed Maddox.

Katrina crossed her legs, tucking her foot behind her calf. She smiled as Abigail came into the room. "Hey." Her phone buzzed beside her on the bed.

"Seems like we're the first ones here. I wonder where everyone else is, honestly."

"It's the first day Dessie." Katrina wriggled along the matress and patted the spot next to her for Abigail to sit down. "I wouldn't worry too much. The interesting people are already here." Katrina held up her phone and opened the camera. "Smile!" Kat snapped a picture of the two of them. She checked the picture. "How have I never taken a bad picture of you? You're, like, flawless. I'm posting this."

Katrina tapped her thumbs against the screen. The picture of the two of them was uploaded to Kat's Instagram.

To: Maddox

"We travelled. Saudi, Dubai, then to Thailand and Vietnam. Richard's planning on expanding into the Southern Asian market, so naturally, we had to scout the competition and get a feel for the locale. How was your summer?

To: Kat
MSG: U know me so well...b there soon ;)

After putting his phone down, Jakub finally manages to get the coffee machine parts in order. It took much longer than it should have, but it's done. At least, Kory hopes he did otherwise there will be firetrucks surrounding the Sigma house within the next couple of days. Kory swiftly pushes herself off of the counter she'd been leaning on and checks her phone one more time. It seems she'd been so caught up with Jake, she missed the opportunity to help her girls move in. Of course. She sighed, knowing all too well this would happen. She would just have to make it up to them somehow.

To: Liitle Lea/ Dee
MSG:I'm sorry babes, u know takin care of Jake is like having custody of a five year old.

MSG: on my way over. Want some food?

Okay, so maybe Jakub wasn't as wild and difficult to tame as Kory made him sound, but there's also the fact that anytime he is out of her supervision he manages to get himself in some bullshit trouble. Trouble that she later has to deal with, and knowing that Khari would be back soon didn't help at all. Between the two of them and Deanna, Kory is sure she's going to have gray hairs by the time she's thirty. She bit her lip, looking over the message from Khari for the second time before exiting back out without a reply. Maybe before the summer began, she would have been fine with being just another one of "his girls", and she was. Until she wasn't. And Kory knows she should be, because being anything other than friends with someone like Khari is a nad move and one she will probably regret. So ignoring the message is the best possible move, or so she tells herself.

"So should I be expecting this house to catch on fire sometime during the next few days?". Jakub's deadpan expression was followed by a playful pout as he pushed the machine into it's new permanent place. "How little faith you have in me." the Sigma says dramatically, earning yet another eyeroll from his sister as her fingers type out a quick reply for Arden, who might very well add to her speed aging.

To: Arden
MSG: You WHAT! >:(

She also doesn't miss the message from Jax, and her fingers hover over the keys for a moment, until the sound on the front door being opened. "The president is here! Where are my boys at?" Jakub gives his sister the best Cheshire grin, not willing to miss an opportunity to annoy her by calling out excessively loudly, "Your wifey is in here!". Korinna's glare is payment enough. The two walk out of the kitchen in unison, Jakub's lips stretching into a wide smile the moment he sees his big. "Damn, could you be any louder?" the Sophomore jokes, giving his big the best of high fives. Now that both Cass and Jax were here, all that was missing was Khari.

Kory also noticed, of course, and decides to split before said Sigma joins the party. It is much too early in the year to deal with conflicting emotions. "While you two go on with your little reunion, I'm gonna bounce. I've got sorority girls to take care of." she informed, sliding her cell phone into her small purse before adding. "And if the new coffee machine blows chunks, it's all Jake's fault."

Whenever Katrina patted the spot on the bed for Abigail to sit beside her, she did not hesitate to maneuver herself to do so. Abigail heard the girl's words but before responding, she decided to let Katrina take the picture of them first and could not help but chuckle at Katrina's following words. "It is the first day, I understand but more people should be here." She commented as she nodded her head. "We are the most interesting Alphas, huh? But we cannot forget Jas in our little trio though." Abigail continued as she eyed the picture and a soft smile followed towards Katrina now. "Oh, please. You know that your the one that makes the picture sparkle and shine." She complimented while feeling her own phone vibrate beside as she took her attention away from the other Alpha for a moment to see Maddox's name scroll across the screen.

"Sounds like a busy Summer." Abigail muttered as she eyed Katrina again after she liked their picture on Instagram. "Hm, mines wasn't as interesting as yours but it was good. I did not do anything exciting for real. Been saving that for this year." She responded towards her then started to type a reply towards Maddox's message from a few minutes ago.

To: Maddy :)
Sounds good to me! I'll meet you guys in the parking lot in ten.


After she sent that message and since no one else had responded to her messages yet, she stood up and walked a few feet towards Katrina's door then turned around towards her again. "So, I'm going to get my luggage with the help of Maddox and Nate. You going to be okay by yourself?" She asked then snapped her fingers as she thought about another idea. "Or you could come with me and tell me about your Sigma situation in detail." She could not help but throw that little bit in there as she already started her trek down the stairs and into the living area. But in her mind, since she was just speaking about the Sigmas, she decided to send a text towards their newly elected president, Jax. Just to see if he was on campus and to mess with him a little bit.

To: Jax
Hey there. Miss me? lol How was your Summer?

Cornelius eyed Harry as he responded to the remark about him sitting on the counter and shook his head at his reply. He continued to listen to the president of Kappa as he mentioned someone having a crush on him, along with their mother. Cornelius could not help but smirk slightly at that as he could not help but add in his own two cents. "How can someone, hell even their mother, not have a crush on you." He responded then could not help but shrug his shoulders towards him whenever he asked how he had been. "I've been all right, thanks for asking but I'm just ready to get this year started on the right track." Cornelius responded then eyed Arden as he entered the house.

He looked down at his phone that was situated on the counter and saw that he had just texted him not too long ago. Cornelius also saw that multiple people had responded to his previous messages and as everyone was focused on Arden's entrance, he decided to take the opportunity to respond the messages after sitting down his bottled water.

To: Jax & Khari
I'm only coming to hang, Khari. lol Not to join. Give me a moment and I'll be there.


It was when he was typing that message that Nick had sent him a reply that caused him to laugh a little as since he was on his way to the house, he did not even bother to reply towards him. His eyes cut towards Arden now as he walked up to him and gave him a soft hug. "What's up, hot stuff? How was your Summer?" He questioned towards him then saw Nick finally walked into the kitchen and literally pushed Arden aside and smiled brightly towards Nick. "Hey there, Nick. Also, how many times do I have to tell you that age is nothing but a number." Cornelius said with a wink towards Nick as he walked back over towards Arden now and heard something about food. "I'm honestly fine with whatever, as long as I eat something." Cornelius muttered as he lifted his shirt up a bit and rubbed his stomach.

It never failed that somehow or another Annabelle smelled like the combination of rich ground coffee beans and mint, an odd combination considering the underlying earthiness that came from the minty scent of her usual tea, but the redhead artist drank so much of both that they seemed to seep from her pores. It was the thing that greeted Kat the second they had embraced, and she was beaming when she pulled away, Annabelle acknowledging Aja. Her smile, crazy as enough, only widened at Scarlett's arrival. Kat eagerly returned the embrace, wiggling her fingers in parting as Scarlett went to help her Little up to the room. Scarlett wasn't Katiana's big, which was probably for the better only because Kat wouldn't have known what to do if her big sister happened to be the president of the organization. That just sounded like a lot of pressure and expectations she wasn't even sure she would be able to live up to, and Kat had too much on her plate for all of that.

"Yo, kiddo," Aja called, at some point having moved to their Dad when gestured over. Kat gathered the two plates she had made and walked over, noting her father's put out expression. "The giant five year old here and I better start heading out if we don't wanna get back home too late. Are you going to be good?" Kat smirked at the question. "Pretty sure I told y'all both to get going earlier, but y'all wanted to stay," she replied and Aja punched her arm before embracing her with a tight squeeze that Kat's still somewhat sore muscles protested. She winced in response, but let herself be hugged, still smirking when her sister pulled away. "Don't overdo it this year," Aja said, giving her another firm, telling squeeze that made Kat wince in more than just pain. "I'll try." Was her quieter response. Aja had been the only one in her family Kat had told of last year's events and it still felt like the main reason why her big sister had wanted to take off of work and be a part of Katiana's move-in. Being able to decorate her room in whatever acceptable way that didn't make Kat gag was just a bonus. Kat was minutely grateful that she hadn't seen Nathan at all since being back.

After her father's own parting hug and words, Kat settled on one of the small sofas, Annabelle's plate on the coffee table in front of her as Kat tucked into her own food, finally taking the time to look at the notifications on her phone. Other than an early morning conditioning reminder from the dance team captain and a few dancers lamenting that if they didn't love dancing they probably would quit while they were ahead, Kat found herself smiling at Cornelius' text, but beaming for absolutely no reason at Jake's saying that he would be there. She had honestly surprised herself by becoming interested in CJ last year, though Kat was still wary about calling it anything other than a base level attraction. They were friends, pretty damn good friends. And in all honesty, she needed those. She also couldn't deny that she was intrigued by the idea of them, especially because she just saw Cornelius as so good, and safe. Because Jake wasn't. After everything that had happened with Nathan, and honestly just re-solidifying that Jake was her number one best friend in the entire world, Kat was also reminded why she had been so adamant about originally making it work with Nate. Having feelings that didn't want to go away for your best friend was no joke. It made you do things like grin stupidly in a room filled with people you really should be socializing with, knowing damn well they didn't see you in the same light. That was definitely far from safe.

Nick rolled his eyes good-naturedly at Harry being still hung up on the idea of them getting a coffee maker. It probably was a great idea, especially because it would save Nick the money he spent on Starbucks. Honestly, it was a great idea now that he actually thought about it. Before coming to Fulton, Nick had actually worked at Starbucks and it was his first job at Fulton freshman year. In truth, he probably - if they got all the syrups or creamers - make drinks on the same level as Starbucks. It had just always seemed easier, especially because he was usually on the go, to just stop by the store really quick since the baristas knew his order very well and keep it pushing. Less hassle and Nick always went earlier enough that he missed the eight am flow. That was always hell and he had learned his lesson sophomore year when the longevity of his lab classes increased and he needed more coffee in order to not look like the zombie he felt like.

"Sounds lazy, but your call," he stated teasingly with a grin, going to the drawer Harry specified to get them all out. Steve's pizza was the first one he saw as it was a classic, but Nick preferred actually being there. There was an actual arcade and it had an old-timey, hipster-ish feel to it that had to be enjoyed upfront, not over the phone. But he put that menu on the counter along with both the Chinese and Italian places they frequented. He was about to see if they still had the menu for the Ethipioan place because even though delivery wasn't something the restaurant did frequently, the last Kappa president had been charming enough to get them forever delivery and that was something Nick was never going to pass up on. However, before he could say another word, Harry had thrown himself on Nick without warning and Nick sputtered out a "Sh-shit!" as he hurried to actually steady himself and support his crazy ass best friend. "What are we? Five?" He complained, though he didn't exactly move to push Harry off. Nick wouldn't call himself the most fit person in their house, but he still did some physical activity. If it wasn't carrying crates of alcohol, it had something to do with the serving trays of food or the tennis he tried partaking in. Of course, none of that seemed to matter when Harry gave him a firm squeeze and told him never to leave him, which was playful - obviously it was playful. But that thought alone had not been enough to stop his heart from fluttering like an idiot in his chest and the grin on his face from widening the way that it had. "Yeah, yeah, sure. Just help me figure out what we're eating tonight," he said, thankful that his breath didn't hitch at the first word past his lips.

To : Mama Kori <3 ( Korinna )
Uhhhh, I'll buy you coffee and explain it to you. Long story. Not really. I got in trouble for getting in a fight at the supermarket. Dude was asking for it though, he kept snickering at me. So I had to. Sowwwiie.

Looking away his phone to receive C.J's hug he laughed. About to answer and being pushed aside, he would make a fake noise of jealousy and look for his big, Harry. Now, they hadn't been very close over his freshman year. But they got better, and Arden accepted Harry as his big, as long as coffee was provided by the man. His eyes a shade of blue currently, he would smile towards his big.

"Ehh, truth be told, I missed you guys. AND WAIT! We're getting a new coffee maker!? YES. I LOOOOOOOOOVE YOU HARRRRRRRRRRY," drawing out the r in Harry's name, yell from the kitchen in glee. Now, anyone in the house knew, of Arden's very very unhealthy relationship with coffee. It seemed to be all he drank, and sometimes he'd be a little wired. Making a small groaning sound, he would unenthusiastically accept his room being across from Harry's. In truth it made him feel safer, but....he couldn't let them know that. "I vote for pizza, it's a fundamental and all-around healthy food item. Introducing all the basic food groups, in one convenient dish.

He also loved greasy food. Moving to the entrance area, and taking his few bags to his room he collapsed on his bed. Sending a few quick text messages to a few people he hadn't gotten a chance to earlier.

To : Surfer Boy ( Brooks )
Hey, you on campus? How was your summer broski.

The good ol' Beta residence. Somehow it looked much bigger this time around. Maddox sat in the driver's seat of his parked car, one hand wrapped around the steering wheel while his free hand reached for the cell phone propped inside the cup holder. It was barely the first day back and he already felt overwhelmed, though part of that could have a lot to do with his not-so-relaxing summer. Between his job, a new internship and avoiding his family (especially his father) at all costs, he didn't exactly have the time to take a summer for what it should have been. And going by all the formulated plans he had in mind for the upcoming school year, it was going to be anything but relaxing and uneventful.

The notification light continued to flash on the upper left hand corner of his phone until he opened and read the messages. Abby would be waiting for him and whichever one of the boys volunteered to go help her with her luggage, so he decided to put off replying to her, pop in to give the guys a quick hello and a welcome to the new additions, and then take off to the Alpha residence. He decided to let Katrina know in case she needed the help as well. A good Beta isn't anything if he isn't a proper gentleman.

To: Miss Kitten
MSG: I hate that I love you, really :P
MSG: If I'm nice and help you move in will you stop sending me these weird songs?

Maddox couldn't help but smile to himself, thinking of all the arguments he and Katrina have had, always over the same thing. He always knew she was right. He needed, or rather still needs to, man up and confront who he is without giving two shits about what others think. Not that he'll be telling her that anytime soon, otherwise the girl will never shut up about it. After skimming over Brooks' message, finding it pointless to reply when he could just answer that in person, Maddox typed out a quick reply to Cornelious. He may not admit it out loud, but he missed the Kappa's company.

To: Corny
MSG: Well, well, Mr. Johnson, if I didn't know any better I'd say ur flirting ;)
MSG: Rain check? I got some business to take care of.

Now there was just one more message left to send. Something he'd thought over a hundred and one times and, after a bloody mental battle and some minor self-therapy, decided he needed to do. His thumb hovered over the name for
a couple of seconds, somewhat thankful that he hadn't deleted the number after all, before tapping on it. Both thumbs picked at the screen with rapid movements, typing out the full message and hitting the send all in one swift move.

To: Arden
MSG: The Roast, 8 o' clock? Just wanna have a talk.

His dark eyes stared at the phone screen for a couple more seconds and then it was slipped into his jacket pocket before regret, or any other bad ideas, made their way into his mind. Leaving everything but his usual charmind smile behind, the Beta quickly stepped out of his car and made his grand entrance through the Beta residence doors. "Home, sweet, home!"

Arden's eyes narrowed at the text message, from a number he was pretty sure he drunk deleted, that popped up on his phone. His dark eyes would look away from it, then look back to make sure it was there. He felt a flurry of emotions, anger, yearning, sorrow. He couldn't decide. Would this be a good thing or a bad thing? Arden wasn't one to really enjoy cycles. But with Maddox, it seemed like he was stuck in one. He would lie there one his bead, clearly agitated, his elbow over his face. He would send back a quick text message to him.

To: The Guy I Fell For / Hate (Maddox)
MSG: Sure....what do we have to discuss?

The Kappa let out a frustrated scream, which probably wasn't the best idea, considering his door was open. He would sit there and ponder about what he was going to do. He and Maddox barely talked, and when they did, it felt like a forced 'hey' to be polite.
He would try to shift his mind towards something better. So he would take his guitar and pull it out. Aimlessly strumming strings and sighing.

What did he just sign up for?

He would scroll through Instagram on his phone, liking random pictures people he knew posted. Before he would get up, and wander around the Kappa house. He was wondering what everyone was doing.

Location: Fulton University - Zeta House

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?


To: Khari
MSG: It's the first day back, please don't encourage my brother into any trouble 2day.

Dialogue: #0000A0
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.

"What are we? Five?"


Over Nick's shoulder, Harry looked down at the menus, smiling to himself at Nick's reaction. Harry wasn't usually one to let people in easily, but he and Nick had been best friends from the go. There was something about Nick that invited confidence. As the song went, friends come and go, but there are a precious few you should hold on to or something like that at the very least. Nick definitely fell into that category and Harry definitely didn't remember song lyrics with crystal clarity. But he could reel off all twenty-seven bones in the human hand, and that was far more useful.

"I vote for pizza, it's a fundamental and all-around healthy food item. Introducing all the basic food groups, in one convenient dish."

Harry slid down from Nick's back. "The medical student in me is compelled to tell you that's horseshit kid, but pizza does make a tempting argument. I vote pizza."

The boys who were hanging out downstairs were more than happy to have a pizza night. "You good with pizza, Nick?"

"Hm, mines wasn't as interesting as yours but it was good. I did not do anything exciting for real. Been saving that for this year."

Katrina tilted her head, listening to Abigail. She wasn't entirely used to having a friend that couldn't just hop on a jet to wherever they wanted, whenever they pleased. How terribly dull that must be she thought."So, I'm going to get my luggage with the help of Maddox and Nate. You going to be okay by yourself?" Katrina started slightly as Abigail clicked her fingers. "Or you could come with me and tell me about your Sigma situation in detail."

Katrina frowned, a pout tugging her lips down. Abigail was the only one of her sisters that Katrina had confided her small issue to. She wasn't sure how the others would react to the confession that she was more than slightly involved with the Sigma President. "There's really not that much to tell." Katrina slid her heels off and traded them for a more practical pair of flats. Rolling her ankle was not how Katrina wanted to start the semester.

She caught up with Abigail. "Ooh." A thought had occurred to her. "We should travel together this summer. Could you imagine how amazing that would be?"

As they walked together, Katrina checked the messages that had come through from her phone. The first, from Jax, almost made her burst out laughing.

From: Jax
No murder today although they deserved it. The only thing I want on my record is stealing your heart. ;)


Katrina shook her head as she typed a response.

To: Jax
Unfortunately for you, there is tight security around my heart. Good luck x

Katrina dropped her phone back into her bag and turned to Abigail. "So, thoughts?"

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!

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...

Spending the rest of the evening in his room, silently freaking over the message he received from Maddox, the male decided to play guitar. Eventually posting a cover of Collide by Howie Day on Youtube. Yep, great way to help your feelings.

----------

Arden didn't really sleep. He was known to be a night owl, but sleeping was a thing he rarely did since the middle of summer. He spent the entirety of the night trying to write chords for a project he was working on, but it didn't really work out for him being sleep deprived. He had noticed the dark circle under his eyes, and shrugged, getting dressed into his outfit for the bonfire. He would wave to the few awake Kappas, and visit the Roast as soon as it opened.

After getting coffee, he basically spent the entirety of the day at the radio station covering someone's shift. Getting off around 6'oclock, heading to the roast, he'd send a few texts out towards his friends and a certain someone.

To: Mama Kori, Princely Charming, Surferboy
MSG:So, I'm seeing you at the bonfire right? You know my ass needs social accompaniment.

He would send these texts individually, basically conveying the same messages. His dark blue eyes would look in his messgaes, noticing Maddox hadn't responded. Typical honestly. The male would type a few versions of the messages he wished to say, but decided on a different approachment.

To: Guy I Fell For / Hate
MSG:We can talk at the bonfire, if you want that is, we don't even have to be seen by your Beta buddies.

With that, he would simply wait at the Roast for his probably third cup of coffee in that day.

It'd been a hell of a first day back. Maddox had done quite a bit, but still somehow didn't get half of the things he needed to done. He spent the majority of the afternoon helping Abby and some of the other Alpha girls move in with the help of some of the Betas. Of course, most of the boys chose to stay and have a bit of fun. Maddox was not the exception, though he decided to stay for entirely different reasons. It had been an entire summer without seeing Abigail or Katrina, two of the few that knew him better than he knew himself. Time flew by, and before he knew it, it was time to hit the mattress.

The next day was spent working on different projects for his internship. He glanced at his phone every now and then, not having forgotten about the texts he had sent out the day before. So much for being a better human. Not that he had deliberately ignored Arden, like he had actually done many times before. This time around he really and truly had just forgotten. He glanced at the read message, and made a mental note to get to it later. First and foremost was his job.

By 6:30, Maddox had already made it back to the Beta house, feeling just a tad bit smug about how successful his projects had been. New and recharged, ready to hit the bonfire. It took him less than thirty minutes to get himself dressed, pressed and ready to impress before he was out and knocking on the rest of the boys' doors. His first stop was a certain sophomore's room, guessing that he would take the longest to get ready. Before reaching the door, though, he decided to check his phone, noticing Arden's message for the first time that day. His dark eyes gawked at the screen for a couple of seconds before letting out an exasperated sigh.

To: Arden
MSG: Done. I'll keep a lookout for a pair of skinny jeans and a beanie.

As much as Maddox ad changed over one summer, or so he liked to believe, Arden hadn't changed one bit. Finding him in the crowd of university students wouldn't be a hard task. Not to mention that, as much as Maddox liked to pretend he didn't care about those he slept with, he did. Not all, but some. And he remmbered every detail about those that he did actually care about. Sliding the phone back into his pocket, he walked up to Brooks' door, leaning up against the door frame as he peered inside. "Well look at you, sexy Betsy." he teased, a playful smirk making its way onto his lips.

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.
