Childhood/Family Life

Despite wealth and looks, Eliza didn't have it easy growing up. She was the youngest of four, three brothers and herself. Her mother, Lucie Talma, took an ill turn and unfortunately died shortly after she was born. Gabriel Hallman, a wealthy businessman, changed drastically after being left to raise three children. If truth be told, he didn't exactly raise them. The age gap between her youngest older brother was five years and her oldest was fifteen, so none of them seemed to be into the same things as children. Of course, Eliza's close with all three of them, but as a child she felt rather lonely and isolated being in a manor that was filled with boys who were much older than her. While they took an interest in things like cars, Eliza was quite a traditional little girl, liking expensive barbie dolls and designer dresses.

Her eldest brother, Evan, practically gave his life up for her. He refused to go to college once he graduated, instead staying home and taking care of his siblings while their dad worked on project after project. She did, and still does, admire him for that. In fact, he pushed her into looking at business; unintentionally of course.
"What did you want to do, Evan?" He pattered her head, showing a smile before telling her his dream of following in dad's footsteps and becoming a business man. Something about that lit a fire under her, and at only ten she knew who she wanted to be. She wanted to do something that mattered,
not only to her but to her brother. Especially her family.

She was good at playing her little games at school. Good grades, a total social butterfly, and yet she practically ran the place by junior year. Sure, there were people who told her she couldn't do it, but that only made Eliza want it more. She had a tendency to want things people told her she couldn't have. Being the tilted 'Queen Bee' thanks to her pretty face and over all demeanour was quite thrilling, and it gave her a sense of power. Though, a rule she had, never be trashy. No teen sex, getting hammered, or taking drugs. She's wait until college for that. At the end of senior year of highschool, passing with flying colours, Eliza Hallman knew exactly where she wanted to go. The same college her father attended; Fulton University.

Quirks//Habits//Oddities:

Playing with her hair

There's no particular reason for her doing this. Though, she tends to do it at lot more if she's bored or flirting with someone.


Baking

She often does this in her free time. Not only does it sooth her after a particularly stressful lecture, it usually tastes amazing. She was told that her mother enjoyed baking and cooking a lit, which was why she first decided to pick it up.


Lip Biting

Though this is usually something girl to to seduce someone, Eliza tends to do it when nervous. Which, of course, doesn't happen very often.


Wears winter socks

Thanks to how cold she gets, she usually wears boots and a pair of warm slipper socks. The only exception is in the warmer months.


Good personality traits

Sociable ❀ Helpful ❀ Confident ❀ Organised


Bad personality traits

Envious ✿ Entitled ✿ Vain ✿ Stubborn



Personality

Eliza is forwards thinking, and to some extent always cheerful. Her strong aura and positive outlook on life seems to make her approachable to most.
Her organised mannerism are usually a helpful thing to herself and those around her. If asked, Eliza'll happily help her Alpha girls without question, but prefers to help friends more than others. Being sociable and attending mixers and parties, it's giving her quite the reputation for a sophomore. Her confidence shines through, giving some people the image that she's rather stuck up, but it's mainly because her her high self esteem. She knows she's pretty, what's wrong with that?

Though, she believes that she's extremely pretty, often described as self absorbed by people who aren't familiar with her; and in a sense she is. It isn't rare for the to get jealous when she can't have things others have, and believes she deserves. Her entitled attitude shows when someone denies her something she really wants,
and it urges her on to demand for it. Refusal to change her mind or scheduled for others is usually why people call her selfish or stubborn. It isn't rare for her to become jealous over small things, like that slight twinge of jealousy she gets when someone gets a partner. Of course she isn't bitter, it's just frustration that it's something she doesn't have.


Greatest joys in life

Evan

Obviously, she adores the socks off of him. Despite him being in his thirties now, the two of them still mutually support each other a lot and he was the one who bought her a flat in Florida to go to in Summer break. He's one of her biggest inspirations, and pushes her to do her best.


Friends

Though she can often put on a mean facade, Eliza's friends mean the world to her. She likes to help support them, often feeling a little overprotective over the people she likes. Being friends with her can almost guarantee a helping hand, a lot of home made cookies, and someone who'll defend you no matter what.



Baking

It's her way stress manifests itself sometimes. Other times she does it simply because she enjoys it. Why ever she does it, It's something that she genuinely enjoys and has no plan on giving it up any time in the future.



Greatest fears


Bankruptcy

As an aspiring business woman, going bankrupt is possibly one of the worst things that could happen to her. It's be near impossible for it to happen thanks to the amount of money that's been saved, but Eliza still thinks about it a lot. What if she made a bad investment? What if she were scammed and money was stolen? Her dream, as well as her parents legacy would be gone.


Heights

This is just a general one. Ever since she can remember, she's been terrified to be up a height. Looking out of high widows made her feels queasy even as a child, and there's no way anyone could ever get her on a rollercoaster at a theme park; The most intense thing you'd see her on is the teacups.


Faliure

The thought of failing, and letting her family down is definitely a fear of hers. Eliza doesn't like to think about it, but it's definitely a lingering fear she has.
Again, it's all about feeling as if she was a disappointment; and her father set his standards for her so high, she really doesn't know if she can reach them.


Rejection

Ah, one from her teenage years. She gained feeling for a boy when she was a freshmen, and remembered asking him out, and he said no. Right in front of everyone. It was so embarrassing, that it genuinely freaked her out and put a dapper in her stride for quite a while.

Thoughts on Greek Life

"I love the whole thing. I never planned on joining a sorority, but the whole Alpha ideals absolutely charmed me."

It's something she never planned on going into, but definitely doesn't regret it. She loves the privileges is comes with, and her sisters are honestly so amazing. Going to mixers and people knowing who she is, is in a sense, rather exciting.


Plans for after college

"I'm going back to work in dad's company. He's left the business to me, so it's only right if I go back there. Mind, I hope to start my own business too."

She basically plans on working for and with her father and attempting to get a loan to start her own chain of businesses. Though, if it doesn't work out, it isn't as if she doesn't have enough money not to work.




Image

Image
Build

Slender, standing at 5'5 (without her heels) and 115lbs.


Hair Colour

Chocolate brow, naturally curly but she straightens is sometimes.


Eye Colour

Hazel.


Distinguishing Marks

She has both ears pierced, freckles across her shoulders, a wave on her wrist to remind her of her heritage, and a small sun tattooed on her right thigh.

[center]Style

Stylish. Always.

Alpha's are known to keep up with fashion trends, and Eliza definitely keeps up that stereotype. She'll wear whatever seems to be in trend, but definitely prefers things like crop tops with a bralette and a pair of jeans. Though, in a professional situation, she'll wear a white blouse and black pencil skirt. She'll usually wear her hair down or in a high bun.

So begins...

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"You big meanie!"

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


To: Music Maker / Alea ❀
Hey Lee! Are you on campus? It's boring at Beta right now.

To: Bigger Beta / Maddox
Are you on your way to house? I'm bored.

To: Picasso / Annabelle ❀
My creative juices are flowing. Art circle later?

To: Princess / Eliza
Need any help with your many bags, Princess?

It did feel good to be back. River can’t deny that. As much as he hated being here, he hated being back at home more so whenever he was away, he was golden. Being back at Fulton was freeing because he wouldn’t have to listen to his father nagging every couple of minutes. Here, he could be an asshole and do what he wanted, and the worst that could happen is someone running their mouth right back to him. Which didn’t happen very often. Either because people were intimidated or because people just found River to be nuisance – he hopes for the former, but most would say it’s the latter.

River leaned himself against a counter, pulled himself up, and plopped down on top of it, while the rest of the guys in the kitchen just stood around. His phone buzzed in his pocket, and he just stared straight ahead, with a serious face, River give a slight eye roll. He wasn’t even in town an hour, and his phone was already blowing up. First Jax, now who could it be? There weren’t that many people that even tolerated River enough to text him. River leaned back slightly to be able to stick his phone in his pocket and pull his phone out. He saw a text from Eliza. Without much change to his facial expression, he started clacking away at the screen of his iphone. Summer was hell, as it always is when I’m home with Eric. Just got here, with the boys. You here? River hit send, put the phone down beside him on the counter and reengaged himself in the conversation with the guys of the Sigma house.

Eliza wasn't anything special to River, but he was some type of eye candy for her. He didn't know if she was genuinely interested in him, or if he was as much fun and games for her as she was for him. Eliza was something for River to play with whenever he wanted to have some fun without getting serious. They haven't done anything - yet - but River knows that whenever he wants to indulge in that sort of trouble, Eliza would be more than willing. He knew she liked him, he just didn't know to what extent. Nor did he truly care. River was ruthless. He was cold. Speaking of games, River thought to himself as he put his phone down after texting Eliza. Another cat and mouse he liked to play was with Scarlett. River looked up at Jax, who had a past with Scarlett. Even though these two were closer friends than most others River knew on campus, what he was doing was harmless. He wasn't actually all that interested in Scarlett, but she was fun to talk to and River was a little interested in corrupting her. Drifting his eyes from his friend, he went on to break the Bro Code and sent Scarlett a text. You back on campus? I know you must be missing me at least a little..

"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

Also, I hope you could hear me rolling my eyes


From: Princess/Eliza
You here yet? My shoes are already killing me

To:Princess/Eliza
Out front helping Abigail move in xx


From: High King of Narnia/Maddox
I hate that I love you, really :P
If I'm nice and help you move in will you stop sending me these weird songs?


To: High King of Narnia/Maddox
Unfortunately I am already moved in. But you can be an angel and help me help Abigail x


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

The laughing and brotherhood between all the guys was amazing. He hadn't had a chance to see any of them over the summer. His grandfather needed his advice on a public relations disaster. Apparently, a person's room wasn't clean properly, which was their fault. The worst part was someone recorded a screaming match between the concierge and this customer. It was a disaster on both ends and, but, thanks to Jax, the whole incident blew over. The rest of his summer was helping the family with the hotel. It was great getting to jet back between California, New York, and many other places, but he missed everybody at Fulton.

He didn't pay too much attention as Korinna left. River and Khari had just arrived and that meant everyone was here! He made sure to give both of them a big hug. He was an affectionate guy and they've gotten used to it by now. "Summer has been crazy for me, my bros. Traveling everywhere at once and constant work. I missed this place, though." When Jakub mentioned leaving to go to Sigma, Jax went on a crazy story about how he had to explain how he was randomly selected for a pat down at by the TSA and how the girl doing it was crazy hot. The story was more to distract the other guys. Some of the brothers, including Jax, liked to give his little a hard time over his crush on a certain Theta sophomore. Jax gave his little a wink as he went out the door.

With his little spared from unnecessary teasing, Jax checked his phone when one of the guys went into a story about his drunk streaking got him arrested over the summer. Jax heard it earlier and needed to check back with his lovely ladies.

To: My Juliet / Katrina
You know you liked it. Plus, security must not be that tight. That little x on the end means a kiss. :3
Speaking of kisses... What are you doing tonight?


To: Songbird / Nari
I will gladly knock whoever's ass down if they mess with one of my girls. Need some TLC? ;)

To: Sugar Queen / Eliza
Same girlie! All work no play for this guy over the summer. As for the cookies, I need yours to survive. You want me to suffer? I thought we were besties.

To: Baby Momma #1 / Deanna
I can keep biiiihhh, but I lack the equipment you like. I'll settle for being the sperm donor though! ;P Sugar and Baby Daddy sounds sweet lol


River's text from him didn't need a response, but Jax made sure to slide up next to him. Jax and River were pretty similar background wise. They had successful families and a business destined for them to work for. The biggest difference was the lack of love in their households. Jax was lucky to have a good family and River wasn't so. Jax would've flew him out to stay with this summer, but didn't want to abandon River so that he could work. The boy is coming home with him for the holidays though. Jax will fight for it. He laid his head on River's shoulder, making a funny face at him. The boy needed to laugh more. Jax kept making faces when he suddenly heard, "Jax! Khari! I'm here for the ceremony! Where the hell are you guys?" Cornelius mentioned coming over, but he didn't know it would be so soon. He was always welcome at Sigma, but the bad blood between Cornelius and River was not welcome. Jax's eyes flew to Khari, sending him worried eyes. He tried to slyly make Khari go to Cornelius first. Jax had a better handle on River than Khari so maybe they could keep the peace for a while if they could keep the two separated. "So my favorite River, tell me all about the trouble we can get into this year. I've got a few pranks planned. Also, any food suggestions for dinner tonight? I'm thinking Mexican." Please don't notice my stalling.

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!




From: STUDY BUDDY <3 / Nari
You here yet? I'm coming to see you later on if that's alright.
To: STUDY BUDDY <3 / Nari
You are always welcome! We might be eating out or staying here. It's unknown, but I'll text you details! I missed you! How was your summer?


From: Trouble / River
You back on campus? I know you must be missing me at least a little...
To: Trouble / River
I've been on campus for a while. I plead the fifth on the last bit.

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...

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.
