  • He rarely blinks and stares at things from the corners of his eyes instead of turning his head
  • He tends to zone out and stare at one thing intently; if he has his journal out, he write random words and phrases his mind makes up
  • He sometimes stops whatever he was doing to stare at something that might've not been there
  • When he's talking, he may slip into another language just because he was thinking about something in that language; this is the same for writing
  • He has a slight tick in his neck can cause him to move his head suddenly if he doesn't periodically

  • Loyal
  • Responsible
  • Entertainer
  • Intelligent
  • Ambitious

  • Secretive
  • Overcritical
  • Aloof
  • Unpredictable
  • Harsh
Image
Image
At first glance Cassius is a gentlemen; friendly, charming and actively paying attention to the people around him; he very easily figures out how someone wants him to act and is able to react accordingly without skipping a beat. He could be talkative and flirty escort at parties and clubs, a responsive and attentive student in the classroom, a concentrated and dutiful chef in the kitchen, and everything in between; surely not a great fit for Sigma Chi. He is able to win over a lot of people this way, but if someone were to even want to try and get closer to him, they would look past all that glamour and see he fits in perfectly. He’ll try to keep face for a moment, he’ll try directing the conversation back to whomever he’s with or return to a topic that was touch upon, but it won’t take long before he drops the act all together with a very blunt comment about his boredom and an unwavering gaze. This is usually the first time someone actually gets a taste of who Cassius really is; cold, intelligent and blunt to the point that it’s insulting. His eyes that he used to read his company to appease them now watch them with a critical glint, ready to call out any and every thing he notices. The words themselves aren’t even all that bad, mostly just observations unless he has a vendetta or really trying to get a raise out of whomever has the rotten luck to catch his attention.
Image
He is unapologetic about who he is, usually telling others that he ”Can’t stand those who can’t handle his very neutral comments.”Even so, the people who do keep their ground to his constant barrage of words do earn his respect, approval and maybe a compliment. He would consider them at the very least good acquaintances and can tolerate their antics a lot more, maybe even make a snarky joke that may still sound like gripping or an insult. But hey if they’ve stayed around that long, then another drop in the bucket isn’t going to mean all that much. Of course this way of thinking, makes more enemies than friends, most of them being people who didn’t take rejection well and their peers, seldom do any teachers or people of authority hate him since he’s a smooth talker. He doesn’t bother to entertain these people with a response other than a backwards insult.

In his mind of course, he doesn’t see why they are so angry, over a rejection. He alway made his relationships clear and distinct, he never sleeps with someone who could potentially catch feelings and almost never dates; even then it only lasts a couple of weeks. He gives each potential partner “the speech” about how he doesn’t ”fall in love, only lust.” Cassius isn’t one to play games at the expense of other’s feelings, surprisingly, so he makes sure each one is aware of what he was after and what will take place. He has no desire to be in a relationship and while one or two people has caught his eye, he never desired to stick around. He was content where he was and has no desire to change any time soon. He’s a lot of things, but he’s not a player.
Image
Image
  • Writing & Reading
    Books are one of the few things that could make Cassius feel something. He believes the invention of word was humanity's greatest achievements because ideas and teachings could last centuries after their writer is dead. He carries a journal around him at all times to write down his ramblings.
  • Learning
    Throughout his entire schooling Cassius has loved to learn. Year after year, he was in the front of the class, answering and asking questions, sometimes derailing topics in the process. He was liked by almost all his teachers for this and actually stayed after class just to talk to them. By the time he graduated, he was valedictorian of his class and plans to be it again when he graduates college.
  • Snake breeding
    Like him, snakes are misunderstood creatures; they're both thought to be evil when they really don't care about you unless you threaten them and they only care about two things; food and sex. Not to mention Cassius likes predicting and planning what the next batch of snakes are going to look like. Any really pretty ones he breeds stays with him while he sells the rest.
  • Tea
    He's British, of course he likes tea, but this goes far beyond a mere like, oh no. He lives off tea he drinks so much that he constantly smells like the vanilla Earl Grey he drinks morning and night. He's so far gone that he makes his own tea.
  • Sex
    His prefered way of getting out of his own head, even though it's a hassle to deal with the night's partner after. Still, it's a great way to clear his mind and fulfill base instincts. It's very common that after a session he's sitting at his desk and jotting down notes, ideas, and questions with his renewed mind.

Image
  • Developing Alzheimer's
    Honestly, a worse fate than death to him. Cassius prides himself on his intelligence and mental capacity, so the thought of losing that and becoming nothing more than a shell of himself. The thought really puts him into gear in order to beat a cloak that might not even exist.
  • Dying
    No, he's not afraid of death; he has come to terms with his mortality long ago and knows that nothing lasts forever. But he's afraid of dying. He's afraid of what it would feel like and how will it happen. Writhing in pain in a hospital bed? Going numb in a poodle of his own blood? Or, if he's really lucky, everlasting bliss of a true la petite mort.
  • Obscurity
    Just like Cassius fears forgetting, he also is afraid of being forgotten. After a childhood of praise, recognition, and compliments, the thought of a monotonous, boring life in bureaucracy chills him to the bone. No, for the sake of his individuality he must break out of such a system, lest he gets lost in the sea of faceless people who have also failed.
  • Humanity causing its own demise
    With things like global warming, overpopulation, and constant threat of nuclear war, Cassius fear's that the end is neigh. All he hopes for is that he's long gone before such a thing happens so he could live his life and learn all that this world has to offer before it's too late.

Cassius isn’t all that proud of his family’s background; in fact his feeling lean more towards disdain. His parents were very average, his father, Magnus, worked in an office in Hastings and his mother,Siena, stayed home selling small pieces of handmade jewelry and baked goods to the little neighborhood they lived in a mile or two out of the town of Rye. He could never understand how his parents could’ve settled for such a boring life, to settle down in such a small town. Still, he couldn’t use their plainness as a reason to hate them so.| He grew up closer to his mother who was a very stereotypical italian mother. She taught him who to cook and bake and helped nurture his mind as best as she could, and for that he come to care deeply for her. He learned Italian and Latin for her and even took up her maiden name when he turned 16 since she had named him after her Grandfather and they had such similar personalities. He and his father were not as close. Because of his long work hours and Cassius also almost never home, the two rarely spoke more than a few words to each other. He was closer to his Grandmother more than his father, who taught him Norwegian when he was younger.

He and his younger twin sisters, Cecilia and Celestina, always felt so cramped and restless in Rye, so much so it wasn’t uncommon for them to ride around on their bikes after school all over town and even past the limits into the fields; it wasn’t all that strange to even see them walking the streets of Playden either. Cassius was somewhat of a father-figure for his younger sisters, he was the one to teach them how to swim and ride bikes, helped them with their studies and taught them what he learned; even though they were only 6 years apart. The two would wait for him at the school gates so they could all explore and talk about their days. They’d come home late at night, only when they were dead tired and hungry before getting up and going to school to start all over again. Of course their mother did not approve but didn’t really have anyway to punish them properly since taking away electronics or grounding them would just lead to them sneaking out and exploring even more. Safe to say she gave up trying to discipline them after that.

He’s at the very least thankful for the town itself though. The amount of history and culture woven into the buildings themselves fascinated young Cassius into it’s history and European history in general soon after that, which was good since being in such a small, old town means there weren’t a lot of kids his age so the school system was a mess. His primary school was combined with another to create Rye’s primary school when he he was in 4th grade and Rye College wasn’t all that better what with the change of the community system to houses. Even so, Cassius passed his classes with flying colors and then some and soon he was getting scholarships from universities around the country. His parents were proud, but when he mentioned studying in America they adamantly refused to pay, not only because of the lack of money, but because they want him closer to home. However that didn’t stop Cassius, in fact he just dug in his heels and got a job working in one of the town’s bakeries. For two years, Cassius saved up money to buy a plane ticket and then some in case he needed to stay the night and for tuition. I was during his first semester when he was approached by Beta Gamma and then by Sigma when they realized he was standing against them.

”None of my predictions of my college life mentioned joining a Fraternity. I was never a huge fan of being apart of one when I read up their reputation while researching the ‘Greek Life’ as you all say. I can only compare them to the Dining Societies back in England, but more...repulsive… I wanted nothing to do with them honestly, but the Omegas were persistent; I wasn’t about to align myself with pompous heritage boys thinking they rule the school. So I joined Sigma just to spite them. Petty, I know, but I really want to grind their gears and make their college career hell. I can’t wait to cause some mayhem.”

Image
”Well I plan to move back to Europe, of course. Though I’m hesitant to say which country exactly… My Grandmother has a house up in Norway I could use in order to study the Norse languages in detail. I know the differences in dialect could lead to different countries treating you a different way so I plan on mastering those differences as the first thing I do once I leave.”

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.

"I'm glad to see you not asleep for once." Jax groaned as his Grandfather teased. Today was move in day for all incoming students and as a part of Housing Team, Jax is required to help the freshman move in. If he hears one more new kid complain about their room assignment, he'll rip his, and their, hair out. 'They should've applied earlier if they want a good dorm.' Jax smiled thinking about it. He didn't have to worry about having a decent dorm, new roommates, or unpacking. Being the President of Sigma meant moving in before everybody else. He also has his own room, already decorated to impress. He'd have to check and see how his boys are doing moving in soon though, especially his little. If only he could finish this roommate reassignment form fast!

"I'm about to! I'm getting old. Maybe we can pick out nursing homes together?" While this response would've guaranteed a punch in the face from any one else, Jackson King the First simply smiled before fake punching his grandson. Jax's grandfather, a former Sigma, wanted to tour the campus one more before jetting off to California for the opening of the newest King Hotel. The whole family normally would've helped Jax move in, but his sister had to visit her husband's family in Canada due to her new pregnancy. Anthony was planning his wedding to his long time fiancé, James, with his mother's help. Jax's father... He just didn't want to come. The man despised looking at the Sigma house, even more moving his son into it. The two haven't talked since the beginning of summer so it doesn't surprise Jax that he didn't show up on move in day.

After FINALLY finishing the stupid roommate reassignment, Jax sent some texts to his boys and his favorite girls.


To: Baby Momma #1 / Deanna
Hey sweet thang! Ready to cause some trouble? Where you at?

To: Little Bro / Jakub, Ice Man / Cassius, Sexy Sigma / Khari
My boys! I'm almost out of this hellhole of work. (¬_¬) About to head back to the house. Let me know if y'all need help!

To: Future Mrs. King / Korinna
Are you talking care of our son? He hasn't destroyed our frat house yet has he?


After pocketing his phone, Jax turned to his grandfather. He had to leave soon. It was kinda weird. Jax has done this several times, but this is Senior Year. He'll see his grandfather for holidays and breaks, but it's the last time they'll have this. Pretty soon, no more college parties or classes, well he won't miss that. "Appreciate the time you've got left, my boy. You'll always be Sigma, a damn fine one too." Jax was pulled into a hug by his grandfather. It was bittersweet. Thankfully, nobody was in the office. He'd die of embarrassment if someone saw such a private moment. "We'll see you at Thanksgiving. Try to bring a girl home too. We love Korinna, but we mean a girlfriend, no space." Jax let out a chuckle before pulling his beanie tighter on his head. 'We'll have to see.' The two men went their separate ways, one going to airport and the other to his house.

~

After approaching the legendary Sigma house's door, Jax got the key out of the fake rock they keep on the doorstep. It comes in handy when the guys aren't too drunk to remember. Entering his home for the next year, Jax hollered out, "The President is here! Where are my boys at?"

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.

“Oi, 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.

“’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- “Oh 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. “It’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. “The 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.“So much for the red carpet,” He said bitterly, picking up his phone once more, earbuds now out from the whole ordeal.

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."

First thing Jax saw when he walked in was three or four snakes around Cassius. The boy look irritated and Jax couldn't help gritting his teeth in an awkward smile. His snakes don't respond well to loud noises so his yelling earlier probably scared them. Cassius gave everybody a talk on how to behave when his snakes are around. Jax doesn't always follow what he says, but he'd rather start the new year on a high note. "I scared the snakes, didn't I? Sorry about that. It's nice to see the Snake King is back though! How'd your summer go?" Cassius and him were very different people, but the Jax wanted him to be happy where he's at. The two texted briefly talking about their summer, but it wasn't an everyday kind of thing, more of a once a month. "Why don't we go talk with the trouble twins in there? I'm sure they want to know too." Jax let Cassius to put his snakes away before he dragged him to the kitchen.

The sight of his little/best friend and his other best friend was a welcome sight. He missed the two and kept in touch daily with both of them. The high five between the big and little was legendary with loud smack, and a explosion like sound coming from Jax's mouth. "I can be louder, but I reserve that for the bedroom." Jax stuck his tongue and winked, mostly at Korinna. "Don't be jealous, Mrs. King. You'll always be number one." With that being said, he pulled her into a hug, picking her up off the ground to hear her squeal for a minute. All they need is Khari and River and they've got everybody!

Hearing that Korinna was going to leave, Jax pouted dramatically. "You're leaving me already. Does that mean I get Jakub and Cassius in the divorce? We can share Alea, but the boys are mine." He was sad to see her go, but being President means putting the little ones first. Blowing her a kiss goodbye, Jax checked his phone and DANG! He had a lot of texts, some surprising, but awesome. "Well boys, looks like I'm sliding into those DM's. This guy is not going solo this year." Jax replied quickly to his texts and sent a few new messages too.

To: My Juliet / Katrina
No murder today although they deserved it. The only thing I want on my record is stealing your heart. ;)

To: Baby Momma #1 / Deanna
Found a new sugar daddy? I thought we had something!

To: Little Bro / Jakub, Ice Man / Cassius, Sexy Sigma / Khari, My Asshole / River
Get your ass over here! We need everybody front and center!

To: Sexy Sigma / Khari, Shoulda Been Sigma / Cornelius
Too late. We've already started the ceremony. You only have to sacrifice one animal this year. Serious though, both of you get your asses over here. I've got the good booze!

To: Cutie Pie / Abigail
I always miss you. My summer would've been a lot better if you'd have been there ;)

To: My Asshole / River
Hey! Where are you? Have you rolling, River?

To: Songbird / Nari
Hey gorgeous! I hope you're not ignoring me. Have you made it to campus?

To: Sugar Queen / Eliza
Where is my favorite baker? I expect fresh cookies as payment for me having to text first. How's your summer been?


He then put his phone down and looking at Cassius and Jakub. I need to hear about your summers! Any cuties, hookups, drama! I need to know." He said dramatically.

There was nothing that River dreaded more after a long summer than going back to school to see all the people he hates. It sounded as dramatic as it was. The only reason River even went to college in the first place was because his father kept pestering him about doing something with his life. River wanted to join the Marines out of high school, but his trouble with the law resulted in some disciplinary action that wasn’t waiver-able right away. He’d need to wait a few years before attempting to enlist. So that’s what he decided to do. He’d go to college on daddy’s dime and just fuck around until graduation, and afterwards, he’d go back to the Marine recruiter and enlist. For now, though, River had to pucker up and kiss ass to make sure that his father would pay his tuition so he didn’t have shit to worry about. He even told his dad he’d go major in Business so he can learn all about the trade so he could take over for his father when the time came. River knew it was bullshit, but he didn’t care.

The plane landed in Miami about two hours ago, but River was in no rush to get to the campus. He knew people would be waiting, he knew his room would still be in the same condition he left it, so why rush? Of course, it was a short-lived thought when his phone started buzzing in his pocket. Reaching into his jeans, River pulled out his phone to see two texts from Jax, pestering him about getting to the Sigma house. River sighed audibly, rolled his eyes, and unlocked his phone to text Jax back: Plane just landed. Be there soon. With the text delivered, River shoved his phone back into his pocket, downed the lukewarm coffee he had been sipping on and stood from the outdoor seating he had chosen at a quaint café not even 20 minutes from campus. He pulled from his pocket the keys to the rental car he had gotten from the airport. He needed a way to transport his luggage to school from the airport, otherwise he would’ve just taken an Uber to the storage unit he had left his bike in. He couldn’t wait to get back on that thing. He had fixed it up himself while he was in school; took him an entire semester last year but when he finally got her roaring again, it was all he rode.

River pulled into the rowdy neighborhood where there was nothing but Greek life and other college student housing. Already, the streets were flooded with students moving back in or moving in for the first time. The corner of his top lip rose in disgust. River pulled up by the Sigma house, pulled into a parking spot just in front of the house and stuck the car in park. He threw his head back against the seat and sighed, closing his eyes and running his hands dramatically over his face, as though he were wiping away the regret of having gone to college. He looked out the passenger side window, looking at the house that houses him for another two years and sighed once more. “Here we go again,” River grumbled to himself softly as he stepped out of the vehicle and locked it. He’d come back for his belongings shortly. River hesitantly walked up to the house, put his hand to the door knob, turned and pushed his way inside. “Yo! I’m fucking here,” River called out to anyone who was home at the time. He stepped through the house, leading himself to the kitchen where he figured at least one person might be, digging through the fridge already. In there he found Jax and other members of the Sigma house. “Sup everyone?” He said with very little excitement to his voice.

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.

“You 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. “We 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. “Kori’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. “I 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. “Next.”

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!

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.

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...

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?"

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."
