Childhood/Family Life:
Harry was the eldest of three children born to Helena and Cyrus Robertson. He had two younger sisters, Lily Robertson and Jessica Robertson. Growing up, Harry pretty much had a perfect childhood. They didn't have everything, but they were loved and didn't go without the things they needed. Given that there was a six year age gap between Harry and Lily, Harry was very close to his parents, particularly his mom. He likes to think that he was a good brother to his sister. He may have broken a boy's nose for not leaving Lily alone.

Everything was going swimmingly for a while, and then Jessica got sick. Really sick. It started with her being feverish and tired and quickly went downhill from there. One night, Jessica had a seizure. With no history of epilepsy in the family, Helena and Cyrus rushed Jessica into hospital. Harry looked after Lily at home, waiting for a call that Jessica was alright. There was no call. Instead Cyrus came home the next day and told Lily and Harry that Jessica had to stay in hospital a little while longer. Harry knew something was up when his dad took him aside. Jessica had been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and it had progressed rapidly.

On a visit to the hospital, Harry could feel his heart break as he lay next to Jessica. She had always been small in his eyes, she was his baby sister after all, but she had never looked this fragile, or scared. He knew there and then that whatever happened, he wanted to be a doctor. He wanted to be able to help other families in the same predicament and help the people who were sick. It was shortly before Christmas when they were told that the treatment Jessica was receiving was no longer effective. With both Cyrus and Helena already working as many hours as they could to pay for Jessica's treatment, and Harry doing odd jobs around the neighbourhood, the family were left with few options. They made the decision as a family to take Jessica home and have a huge family Christmas. Harry keeps a picture of himself, Lily, and Jessica in a frame on his shelves. Sadly, Jessica passed away shortly after the new year.

Watching his parents grieve for his sister was one of the hardest things Harry had to watch. At least with Jessica, the illness had been relatively short and she was at peace now. For his parents, the grief would always be raw. Rather than burdening them further with his own grief, Harry directed his anger into his schoolwork. He knew that science and math were going to be the most important if he wanted to be pursue medicine. Even now, five years down the line, Harry hasn't fully come to terms with losing Jessica, mostly because he doesn't want people to worry about him. He's never really spoken to anyone about it. Instead, he keeps himself busy through work so he has something else to focus on.

Quirks//Habits//Oddities:
Bites his finger when he's stressed
Is slightly obsessed with eating boiled eggs
Dances when he cooks
When he stands still, he curls his toes underneath his feet, like a bad ballet pointe.

Good personality traits:
Caring| Compassionate| Dedicated| Diligent| Organised| Romantic

Bad personality traits:
Stubborn| Secretive| Insecure| Workaholic| Moody

Personality:
Harry is definitely the kind of guy to let his heart rule his head. Despite his major in pre-medicine, he is an emotionally driven man rather than a logical one. That doesn't mean that his decisions are without reason. Even his decision to become a doctor was an emotionally driven one. He is deeply rooted in family values and is very protective of the people he cares about. It takes a lot for Harry to open up to somebody, mostly from some misplaced sense of protecting them. He's secretive by nature and tends to keep his cards close to his chest, both professionally and personally. If he does open up to people, he tends to hold them closer than others. It takes a special person to earn his friendship and loyalty. It's how he's always been. He is deeply empathetic towards other people, but he just doesn't trust them all that easily.

He is something of a romantic. He likes to woo his partner first, taking them to dinner, or on a romantic picnic, or walks along the beach, that sort of thing. He's kind of old-fashioned when it comes to romance. Harry uses romance to hide his own insecurity in himself and in relationships. His comfort zone is quite small. If he's not working on something, he's not comfortable, whether it's college work, volunteering, or organising events within the fraternity or with their Theta sisters. Making the effort with someone he likes gives him something to focus on other than himself. Harry definitely isn't one for introspection. If someone tries to force him to open up, he retreats quickly and can become moody and withdrawn from them. He knows it's not healthy, but he can't quite bring himself to really talk about Jessica. He'll tell people what happened if they ask, but they get the bare bones of the story without him having to go into the trauma of what actually happened.

Greatest joys in life:
Lily| The smell of the air in summer| Helping people| Scruff, his giant schnauzer who he trusts to Lily's care.

Greatest fears:
Losing Lily or letting her down

Life philosophy:
Always help people. You don't know what they've been through.

Thoughts on Greek Life: Joining Kappa started as a pragmatic choice. He knew that if he wanted to be a doctor, he was going to need good recommendations to get into medical school. He'd heard through the grapevine that Sigma was the party house, so he steered clear of them. He considered Beta, but they had a stick up their collective ass, so he joined Kappa, which turned out to be one of the best decisions he had ever made. He has people he actually likes and somewhat trusts around him. And there is much less toxicity around.

Plans for after college: Harry is gonna bust his ass through medical school and become a doctor. Maybe save the world one day, he hasn't decided on that yet. For now, he's quite happy being a doctor.



Image

Image
Build: 5'11 147lbs. He has a athletic build which he has begun to hone in the gym.

Hair Colour: Sandy brown

Eye Colour: Green

Distinguishing Marks: Scar on the shell of his left ear. Has a scar on his hip from having his appendix removed.

Style: Harry lacks the ability to dress himself. Without guidance, he ends up looking like a background character from Cowboy Bepop, either that or a rejected Doctor Who. He is the kid that turns up to lectures in his pyjamas. If he looks anywhere near decent, he's had help.

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.

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

"Dad?"

"Hmm?"

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

"Looks that way."

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

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


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


"Who you texting sweetheart?"

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

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

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

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

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

"Nick's the gay kid, right?"

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



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

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

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

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


To: Arden
You doing ok?


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

"Can we get an X-box?"

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

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

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

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

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

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

To: Maddox
Hey handsome, how was summer?

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

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

"I can drive you to the airport, you know. It's not that big of a deal," Nick insisted as he lowered his venti vanilla sweet cream cold brew from the Starbucks on campus. His Dad only shook his head with a small smile on his aging face. "I'm getting old, but I'm capable of taking an Uber to the airport by myself, Nicky," he stated and Nick rolled his eyes at the slight, ready to insist again when his father put up a hand and added, "Stop worrying about me." They both knew that was going to be an impossible feat.

Though they had lost Joanna pretty much six years ago, Nick still felt the residual pressure of having to look after everyone on his shoulders, even when his father told him to just worry about his own schooling and preparing for his own future. Being selfish or simply worrying about himself had never been an option, not when his father had lost his parent in everything that counted. While Jenny still tried helping out amidst her own goals of becoming a lawyer, Nick had taken the brunt of mostly everything; he helped at the clinic when his father needed an extra hand to take care of patients and collecting co-payments when the other nurse was busy making sure referrals and other paperwork were processed, Nick cooked at home for both of his siblings, and to an extent, he pretty much took care of their youngest girl, Gigi, until he went off to college. And with it becoming more and more noticeable that their Dad was getting older - to the point that no one could deny that little bit of truth - Nick had reason to be concerned. Jenny would always visit in his stead, but he knew how both Gigi and Lou could be. The former was the classic teenage girl except she was a touch more demanding and spoiled, and unable to allow anyone to tell her to do for herself without insisting that she was being mistreated. To this day, Nick isn't sure if that was his doing or Jennifer's.

"Just...call me when you land," he instructed and watched in mock annoyance as the older man proved that he had the more childish eye roll down followed by a marked bitch face. It almost put Gigi's to shame. "I'm serious, Dad. I'll Facetime Gigi to make sure she gets her summer work done tonight before she goes out to any party." His Dad chuckled before inquiring, "You sure you're not the Dad here?" Nick lightly punched his arm as the Ford Explorer pulled up; it was a surprising choice for one person, but Nick wasn't going to complain. "You just get in that damn car and don't miss your flight because you fell asleep while it was boarding again." The two shared a small laugh at that and afterwards embraced with the promise of them both taking care of themselves. Once Nick had seen the car drive away from campus, he took a long drink of his caffeinated beverage and pulled his phone back out. He rolled his eyes at the conversation with Deanna on the walk to the gates with his Dad, opting to look at what he had received from Harry. He also thought to check in on Cornelius since he hadn't had the time to go see if his Little had returned to campus yet.

To: CJ
Heading back to da house. Need anything?

To: Harry
U must not have seen him at electric pickle. pretty sure dancing on counters is his life aspiration or something lol.

omw

lets hope they don't break this one

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

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

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

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


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

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


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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

To: Khari
We dont luv dese heuxes ;D

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

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

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

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

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

"These are clean on today."

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

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

"I'm home bitches!"

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


Nick pulled away and began rummaging in the drawer next to him. Harry watched with idle curiousity. "So I was thinking we either cook tonight for the guys or order out. We still got the menus from last year? Or do we need to just go ahead and hit up Krogers?"

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

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

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

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

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

To: Maddox
Awww. I knew you loved me really


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Taemin dropped her off at the campus gates with a few of her her bags. Honestly, she felt like she was dressed much too frilly to be hauling things around house, yet here she was with a suitcase in hand. Glancing around the campus, eyes watching the freshmen scamper about excitedly.

"You got everything, Sunny?" Turning her head back to glance at her brother, the girl gave a nod before letting out a soft sigh. "Don't worry about me. Don't you need to be off to see your newest girlfriend? What's her name this time?" Sticking her tongue out playfully only to get a little pinch to the cheek in return for the older male. "Hurry up and go before you start crying. I'm proud of you, you know." With another nod, Nari happily gave him a squeeze and held the two blue suit cases in each hand. "Yeah, I know. I'll call you later, okay?" With a wave, he got into the car and drove off. Offering him a wave, she turned to face the crowd of people.

Her face was screwed up a little as a freshmen bumped past her, almost knocking her crown flying. He turned, giving a rushed apology before dashing off into the mass of people. They're much too jittery for my liking this year. Feeling the vibration from her phone and assuming it'd be her brother, she rushed of to a slightly less busy path where she'd have the time to pause. Taking her phone out, she couldn't help but grin a little.

From: Guitar Hero/Jax

Hey gorgeous! Hope you're not ignoring me. Have you made it to campus yet?


To: Guitar Hero/Jax

Hey handsome! I've been here the best part of five minutes, and I've already nearly been knocked over.


To: Babyboy/Harry

How's my favourite doctor? Hope you didn't miss me too much over summer, baby.


To: Miss Red/Scarlett

You here yet? I'm coming to see you later on if that's alright.


To: Mama Bear K/Korinna

Kory! I'm about five minutes away, make sure the door's open for me!


Clicking the power button, the screen turned black and the senior took a glance at herself in the black screen. With a sigh, she slid it away, and continued to tug the cases along until she reached the Zeta house. Home sweet home. In this moment, she was extremely glad for her flat shoes. One case was let go, using her free hand to turn the handle as her foot pushed against the door, sending it opening slowly.

"Guess who's back!" The familiar and faint smell of the house filled her lungs, and a smile touched her lips. Finally.

"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.

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

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


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

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

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

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


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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"How the hell did you beat me to my own car?" Nick asked as he approached his 2010 Nissan. It was old and it wasn't the flashiest vehicle on campus, but once his dad signed everything over to him, it became Nick's. And that was enough for him. He thought better of his question and also inquired, "And why the hell are you on top of my car to begin with?"

"Selfies," Deanna stated from her perch atop the hood of the blue car, hand splayed back on the cool metal so that she could look up as she took the pictures. She had originally been on her Instagram story, but decided pics were in order. Dee may have been a bad bitch, according to her, every single day, but there was something about dressing up for events - even the casual ones - that made her feel like being extra. And what better way to be extra than to post a series of pictures of yourself on social media so that everyone else could admire how much of a bad bitch you were? Her bathing suit was pretty simple in comparison to some of the other ones she could've chosen, but the sheer, shimmery material of the over-sized shirt that looked more green under certain lights combined with the shoes she found in California made a not so fabulous look, look absolutely fabulous. She glanced at the dubious look she could feel emanating from Nick and her mouth widened into a childish grin, "Nicky, come and love me!"

Nick side-eyed her for a second, but easily walked over while retorting sarcastically, "Pretty sure I'm the wrong gender to do your type of loving." Deanna gave a mock-outraged glare. "Fuck you!" Nick snorted. "Wrong gender for that too." He narrowly missed the careless upward swipe of her leg at him, a botched attempt at a kick that she remedied only by snatching him against her before smacking him on the back of the head. "This is why I can't stand yo ass. Just take the damn picture with me." Two seconds later and the flash went off, and Nick was able to relax in the space formed between Deanna's legs, leaning back against her as she used his back to type out whatever it was that she thought was a necessary caption to go with her post. Nick wasn't really big for social media, but considering Deanna's current profession and what her future would more than likely entail, it was no surprise that she was posting so frequently. It was like another job for her. She had to keep up appearances. And Nick, more times than he liked to admit, always wound up being sucked into it despite being the notably camera shy one between the two of them. Not that Deanna cared. She somehow snatched several pictures of him without him knowing she had taken them until he received a notification from whichever social media site she decided to use for that day, and threatened to terminate their friendship if she didn't take down the most unflattering ones.

Nick swore that all of them were unflattering, so Deanna promptly started ignoring him.

"Text ya boyfriend and see if he's ridin' with us or not," Deanna said, scrolling through her timeline for a minute before she realized that there were text notifications. A few were from her sorority sisters and one from River, which made her lips curve into a smirk. Nick's eyebrows shot up at her, though she couldn't see. "What are you - ? I don't have a - " It took him only a second later to realize it and Nick's face heated once it hit him. "Harry's not my boyfriend. He's my friend." Deanna rolled her eyes, unimpressed. "Baby, he better be somethin' witchu sighin' and shit all summer." Nick looked mighty affronted, even as he pulled out his phone. "I did not sigh."

He totally sighed.

Deanna obviously didn't look like she believed him, which she had every reason to look like. Nick sighed (shit) and shook his head as he text Harry as instructed, saying, "I-it's not even like that and you know it. Harry doesn't - he wouldn't." Deanna promptly replied, singing, "Not gonna know if he would if ya don't ask." Nick grumbled that he wasn't asking her as the text was sent, just as Deanna sent her own in response to River, and then to Kory like a good little Zeta appeasing her mama Zeta.

To: Asshole

Morning yoga for Scarlett was about as essential as coffee is for Finals Week. She started out every morning in the backyard of the Theta house. Sometimes the girls would join her and it'd be like an impromptu yoga class, but it was great for building moral among the girls. The girls always said that her little yoga sessions helped build positive vibes in the house so Scarlett saw no reason to stop. Little moments like these were precious to Scarlett, especially know that she's a senior. Soon, she'd be passing the baton to the next President. While graduating and med school was exciting, she would miss her time in the Theta house. It was like a second home to her and she wanted the next President to make it feel the same.

The rest of Scarlett's day was filled with checking in on the new members and helping some of the new girls choose an outfit for the bonfire tonight. The Theta's reputation on campus is a great one, but when a party comes around, most people expect the Thetas to stay locked in their house, studying and preparing for tests. Some girls do do that, but the Theta girls can enjoy a party just as well as the other sororities. A few girls needed advice on what looked good and if wearing a swimsuit with a cover-up was okay. It was naturally and Scarlett did her best to ease any anxiety among her new sisters. It wasn't until seven when she finally got to get ready herself. Scarlett did decide to wear a swimsuit under her clothes since it was a beach setting. Her cover-up consisted of a tribal crop top and black maxi skirt. Sandals as footwear since she'd be taking them off by the end of the night. To top it off, Scarlett kept her makeup simple and sweet. She smiled as she looked in the mirror. Tonight would be a night of fun and no drama. A sudden chirp from her phone distracted Scarlett from her positive thoughts. Speaking of drama, Scarlett sighed at the text from River. It wasn't as if he was a terrible person, but the idea of him didn't feel right. He was one of Jax's good friends and known for devious behavior. Even though her brain said don't respond, Scarlett typed out a response and sent some of her own texts.

To: Trouble / River
I'll be there! See ya there?

To: STUDY BUDDY <3 / Nari
Wanna meet up at the bonfire? I need my best girl!

To: Second Best Doctor / Harry
Ready to party like we just finished a twenty hour surgery? lol

To: Brother from Another Mother / Nick
I better see you at the bonfire! Save me a dance <3


Checking herself one last time, Scarlett made her way to her little and her little's roommate's room. She knocked on the door, not wanting to intrude in case they were changing. "Hey girls! Do you need any help getting ready for tonight? Or maybe a ride?"

Nari Lee
Outfit: X X
Location: Zeta House
Dialogue Colour: #77051c
Thought Colour: #c44040
This was ought to be one heck of a night. A bunch of college kids mixing together while there was booze and partying about, what could possibly go wrong? Actually, there were a lot of things that could go wrong, but the brunette wasn't thinking about that. No, she was much too busy picking out an outfit. After trying on almost six different skirts, two pairs of leggings, a body suit, and seven different shirts, Nari finally decided on something more comfortable. A thin purple jumper, comfy skirt, and a pair of fishnets. Honestly, she didn't really care if other people would like it, it was on her body, and she looked great.

After a talk with they girls, Nari decided she was going to go a little earlier to ensure they had the right sort of drink, mainly so she could get dibs, but she'd buy more if she had to. Her tucked her hair behind her ear, picking up her phone after ignoring its vibrations for the day.

From:Guitar Hero/Jax
The lovely ladies of Zeta better show themselves! I expect the best of my favorite sorority!


To: Guitar Hero
Don't you worry your pretty little head about a thing! We'll be there <3


From: Miss Red/Scarlett
Wanna meet up at the bonfire? I need my best girl!


To: Miss Red/Scarlett
Obviously! See you there!


To: Babyboy/Harry
Need help picking clothes out for tonight? Lol :P



"See you later, Korry. Give me a text if you want me to buy any alcohol or anything like that." Giving the president a wave, Nari stepped out of the house. It was just getting dark, and the sky was such a beautiful hue. Smiling to herself and walking across campus while she ordered a cab, she though back to last year. Hopefully Harry won't have to carry me home this time. . . However this went, Nari knew she was going to have one hell of a time. Once the cab arrived at the gates, she was on her way to the bonfire. I mean, she may have gotten dropped off at the nearest supermarket to buy vodka and prosecco, but she way on her way!
