ImageAPPEARANCE
[HEIGHT] 6 ft. 0 in.

[WEIGHT] 168 lbs

[BUILD] Lanky - Jakub isn't stick thin, but he doesn't have a hug amount of muscle. He's an average weight for his size considering the amount of muscle mass his body holds. That, coupled with his long limbs, makes him look thinner than what he truly is.

[HAIR] Black-Brown and naturally wavy [i]though Jake does dye it every once in a while, usually on a whim. You may see him with luscious, black locks today,
but come tomorrow morning he'll be sporting something completely different like a platinum or an electric blue.

[EYES] A soft blue with brown specks around the iris

[SKIN] Naturally bronzed - Jakub is one of the rare few that remain the exact same color throughout the entire year. Come summer, winter or fall, his skin tone maintains it's natural sun-kissed shade.

[DISTINGUISHING/UNIQUE MARKS] Tattoos galore! - Jakub had his first tattoos done when he turned 18, and ever since, he has not been able to stop. He's a big fan of capturing important things, people and moments in the form of ink. It's the best way he can express himself, seeing as he's not very good with using words to do so.

[OVERALL APPEARANCE] Jakub Darzi is the true definition of mister Tall, Dark and Handsome. Standing at six feet and some centimeters, coupled with his electric stare and beautifully sun-kissed skin, it's no wonder he turns heads on a daily. Not that Jakub particularly flaunts his looks, in fact, you will hardly ever hear any comments from him in regards to his looks or skills. That's not to say he isn't confident. He believes he is good looking and will gladly accept your compliments. As for his fashion and style, Jakub truly doesn't have a specific one. He wears what he wants, when he wants, usually depending on the mood he's in. You may see a lot of leather jackets, plain colored t-shirts and washed out jeans, but that's by no means the entirety of his wardrobe. He can rock a suit and tie just as easily as a windbreaker and a pair of hiking boots.

QUIRKS/HABITS
✦✧infectious laugh✦✧ Jakub's laugh is unique, to say the least, but infectious right down to the very core. You can't sit there and listen to his laughter without having to laugh along. ✦✧Terrified of heights✦✧ Not something Jake would openly admit to, but when he was a child he watched one of his friends fall out of a 2 story window leaving him paralyzed for life. Ever since, Jake has been terrified of being more than a couple of feet above ground level. ✦✧Slapping his sorority brothers' butts✦✧ nothing to it but some harmless fun.✦✧Avoiding confrontation✦✧ perhaps one of the most annoying habits to those around him, but Jakub has become highly skilled at avoiding any and every form of confrontation when there is a problem. He prefers to ignore it all together until, in his logic, it goes away on it's own.

TALENTS/SKILLS
✦✧Drawing/Sketching✦✧ there was a point in time when Jake wanted to be a tattoo artist, and he very well could be. With his love of tattoos and his advanced drawing skills. He's able to draw you a portrait or landscape in mere seconds, just give him a descent pencil and a blank piece of paper. ✦✧Dance✦✧ Jakub's tall, lanky figure makes his body perfect for dance, and he does have a love for it, though he doesn't do it as often as he would like to. ✦✧Cooking✦✧ You name it, Jakub can cook it. Jake is a major foodie, which means he will take new recipes to heart and learn them in the blink of an eye. To him, cooking is as easy and walking.

GREATEST JOYS
His tattoos
His brothers, even if they do drive him nuts sometimes
His step sister Kory and best friend Kat
Food!

GREATEST FEARS
Being forgotten/left behind by those he loves
Hurting his step-sister
Disappointing his mom

LIFE PHILOSOPHY
"It's now or never. But preferably, now"
Jakub has always been one to love living in the moment. Spontaneous, impulsive, daring. He's not the type to leave things for later, but rather he tends to acts without thinking sometimes on the thought that it's important to get things done now because we don't know what will happen come tomorrow.


Image
PERSONALITY
Jakub is like a blizzard; absolutely beautiful, but potentially lethal. There are many layers to the young Persian boy that only a handful of people ever get to see to an extent deep enough to really get to know him. He doesn't necessarily try to keep others out, but he does take his time in letting them in, and only those that are truly interested stick around long enough for it. As emotionally strong as he is, he's not willing to just let anyone come in and occupy a piece of his heart. There's limited space in there and he wants to save it purely for those that earn it. And believe me, earning it is not an easy task.

An attention seeker is what some may see him as, seeing as he's always finding himself in the midst of trouble. But really, what Jakub does or doesn't do is never with the purpose of impressing or acquiring attention. Any trouble or chaos he sets himself up for is purely for personal satisfaction and will almost always shrug through the consequences with a playful smile. He's not the type to go out of his way to seek others' approval. Whether you hate him or love him is not something he will lose any sleep over. But don't be mistaken, he's not an unfriendly person. He's social in his own sense and while he may not be the first to spark up conversation, he's certainly not opposed to it and most people are surprised to find that he's extremely easy to talk to.

He can be a bit blunt at times, never truly knowing how to sugar coat words. In that sense he may come off as insensitive or rude for saying something he doesn't truly mean, or saying it in a way that sounds offsetting for being a cheeky bastard. More often than not, he will take note of when he has said or done something wrong and will attempt to make up for it in his own way. However, he will never apologize for something he believes in wholeheartedly, regardless of how rude or insensitive it may seem. He can be brutally honest, even with those he loves. He doesn't believe in graceful lies. The truth hurts, but sometimes it's necessary, and he would much rather for people to be honest with him than going and talking behind his back. That, coupled with a slight temperament, may lead others to shy away from him. But for every rough layer, there is a silver lining. Jakub has a kind heart and a compassionate soul. It's just a matter of digging until they are found.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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

~

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

To: Annie <3
Kk babe

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

To: Jake
u sure? we have food

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

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

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

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

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

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

Because she did.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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

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



To: Flirty idiot #1

MSG: And who are you again?

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MSG: on my way over. Want some food?

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

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

To: Arden
MSG: You WHAT! >:(

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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.

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

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


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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To: Khari
MSG: It's the first day back, please don't encourage my brother into any trouble 2day.
MSG: I guess I missed you a little :P

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

[justify]In all honesty, Katiana shouldn’t be nervous. She had already dealt with first party of the year jitters last year and should have already developed some kind of immunity to them. These parties weren’t that different from the ones Jake had managed to talk her into before they had even gotten to college; there were just more adultier young adults now and there was less of a concern that things would get shut down because there were more minors than legal adults. So, no, that wasn’t what heightened her anxiety. It wasn’t even the fact that she was approaching the Sigma house. If Jake was at a place and he wanted her there, best believe she was going there, regardless of who had what to say about it. But still, there was a difference between going to the Sigma house simply to hang out or wait for a friend to come out, and going to the Sigma house wearing pretty much a see-through get-up with a bikini underneath.

It honestly shouldn’t have bothered her much. Kat was pretty accustomed to not bothering to wear more than simple crop top or even bralette as the top for the day because she couldn’t be bothered with her usual timidity, or even under an open bomber just because the mood struck. However, at the moment, she couldn’t tell whether it was because she was anxious for Jake’s reaction or simply her being self-conscious with exposing a bit more than she would unless dance was involved. So, she made sure to text Jake as she approached the front door of the Sigma house, the sound of her sandals startlingly louder than the whoops or cheers she could hear from across campus from students getting ready to leave for the bonfire.

To: Jake
Im outside. Want me 2 get uber?

Just as Katiana saw the message was sent and had reached the Sigma porch, a pair of older Sigmas - seniors, if she remembered correctly - opened the front door and would’ve probably went about their business in exiting, but actually held the door for her. ”After you, babe,” the taller of the two said and Kat gave a small, appreciative smile as she entered the house. And chose obstinately to ignore the feeling that someone was staring at her from behind when the guys finally left and the door closed behind her. Jake just needed to come on, so they could leave and she could get the drink she was probably going to regret come morning.

Jakub rarely ever gave his outfits much thought. He was no fashionista, and though he more often than not managed to look like a full-course meal, it wasn’t because he actually tried. So ultimately, getting ready for the bonfire took all of twenty minutes. Fifteen, really, if you didn’t count the times he stopped to read or respond to text messages. Believe it or not, it had been awhile since Jake had been to an actual, legitimate party. The buzz of the excitement felt nice, and something he missed greatly. He could already hear the excitement of other students echoing throughout the streets and he promptly got to his feet, his footsteps taking him out of his room and into the hallway.

His original destination was the kitchen, but he stopped abruptly when the chime of a new message was heard. Somehow, he already knew who it was from before even needing to open it.

From: Kat
MSG: Im outside. Want me 2 get uber?

He smiled at his phone screen, quickly typing out a reply before he reached his big’s door, where Khari was already poised and attempting to get the king out of his royal chambers.

To: Kat
MSG: [color=##0000a0]Yes please :) On my way down[/color]

His smile quickly evaporated the moment he reached Khari, his eyes glancing over his senior before moving closer to the closed door. ”Jax, get your ass out here already. You’re going to look hideous no matter what you wear.”. After adding in his two cents, he gave Khari a quick nod. ”I'll meet you boys at the bonfire, I'm taking an uber with Kat.” he announced with a subtle smirk before continuing his way down to met his best friend. Every step feeling heavier than the other. This was all still so new to Jake, unexpected, and it completely threw off his groove. So much so that any phrase or word he planned on saying completely froze in the back of his throat the moment his eyes met Kat’s figure. ”Uh-” he came to a halt just a couple of feet away, looking over her for all of five seconds before his gaze switched to the two SIgma’s hovering by the front door. He frowned immediately, eyes instinctively narrowing in their general direction. ”What are you two looking at? Move along!”

Kat probably had to glance upwards twice when she heard someone bound down the stairs, but the third time was the charm because soon enough, Jake had arrived. That alone was enough to make her beam up at him...until she noted his expression. ”Wh-what?” She asked, looking down at her outfit for a brief moment before her eyes rose back to his. The self-consciousness crept back into her belly, sending a flutter of nervousness she could feel all the way to her toes. It didn’t help when Jake snapped at the two Sigmas that Kat honestly thought had left already. The awareness of their presence made her skin prickle. ”Think this is a bit much? I guess, I could change, yeah?”

Jakub bit his lower lip to keep from saying anything else to the Sigma pair as they exited the house. They hadn’t done anything really. At the very least not a thing that any normal male wouldn’t do, but something about it irked Jake to the moon and back. The thought of other guys looking at Katiana in that certain way made his skin itch. Because she was like a sister...or so he had to tell himself over and over again. He had the right to be protective, and he had convinced himself that his reasons were valid, even if they weren’t true. ”Nah” he finally responded, the right side of his lips quirking upward into his signature half-smile Kat had probably come to know very well by now. ”You’ll just have to deal with your bodyguard, Jakub, for the rest of the night.” he added. He glanced over his shoulder, making sure there was no Sigma eavesdropping on their conversation, or he would surely never hear the end of it later. ”And if you’re going to go home with some asshole, you better make sure he gets my permission first!” he stated, though what he really wanted to say remained in his throat. You better not be going home with any guy unless it’s me.

Traitorously, Kat’s pulse fluttered when Jake gave his signature smile, which was more devastating than it had the right to be. Quietly swallowing down any instinct to actually appraise his appearance for the night because honestly, Kat was having enough of a struggle as it was with his display of protectiveness making her just a touch giddy, she only rolled her eyes at him, grinning. ”Yeah, whatever,” she replied cheekily, biting her lower lip as she set to ordering their uber. Once things were selected, she added, ”Uber’ll be here in five minutes. We should head outside. Got everything?” Kat wouldn’t be herself if she hadn’t brought one of her smaller bags. It was big enough to fit a towel inside along with her charger, and a few other essentials that could help any of her friends even if they didn’t help her. Let it be said that Kat never didn’t come prepared, even if it meant toting around a handbag at a party.


Jakub chuckled softly at the sound of the question, because Kat already knew he wasn’t the type to carry around anything aside from his cell phone. And even that sometimes was abandoned somewhere. ”No, I don’t.” he said, casually sliding an arm around Kat’s shoulders to turn her in the direction of the Sigma house’s front door. Even if the action made his heart pause for a fraction of a millisecond, he surely didn’t show it. ”But I’m pretty sure you do, so let’s go.” he urged, hoping to get out of the house before any of the other boys caught up to them. As much as he loved them all, anytime Kat was around, they were known to be a bit much. They could catch their own uber to the party if they wanted to. The weather out was perfect for the occasion. Jakub noticed as soon as they set foot outside the large estate. He turned to Kat, lips poised to make another comment about how he would beat any guy’s ass that even attempted to look at her the wrong way, but a soft chime coming from his phone stopped him. Jakub wasn’t in the least bit surprised to find it was a message from Kory.

His lips quirked upwards as he read before turning his attention back to Kat. ”Kory’s already warning me about not starting any trouble. I can be responsible, ya know?” Katiana giggled then, more than comfortable under his arm. Too comfortable, if you asked her on a bad day, or asked the swarm of butterflies that decided that her stomach was the perfect location for their new residence. But at the moment, she decided to bask in it since she was sure any other girl who wanted Jake would, leaning into him as they headed out. Without wanting to, Kat found herself admiring the side of her face just a little when Jake’s attention was diverted to his phone, smile softer on her face than it had no reason to. She couldn’t help it. Besides, she might have been pathetically obvious to anyone else, but at least not to him. That would be mortifying.

At his question, she playfully put on a thinking face, tapping her lower lip while she was at it before inquiring cheekily, ”I mean, yeah, but what’d be my purpose if not to help make sure you stay responsible?” Her own phone chimed then and Kat glanced down, brow furrowing just slightly when she noted the information Uber provided. ”Uber said we’re pulling with a guy named Brian. He’s getting picked up around here somewhere, shouldn’t be that much longer,” she said it with a lilt of optimism, but there was a disappointment underneath that Kat couldn’t exactly deny.

Picking Uberpool was the cheaper option and it always came with the risk that she’d have to ride with another individual who possibly had a guest, but the gamble was usually worth it. It seemed, though, that now that she actually wanted to enjoy the ride without unnecessary others, either Uber or - as her brain dramatically supplied - the universe was against her. She could deal, sure, but she had liked the idea of them riding out together and it just being her and Jake. With how busy her schedule seemed like it would be, and how much the Sigmas usually got into during the school year from what she saw last year, some part of her feared that they wouldn’t have many times where their schedules lined up. Kat wasn’t dependent on Jake’s presence, but she loved it. He was her best friend and even if a very loud, very traitorous part of her wanted more, being her best friend meant longing for alone just as she would occasionally want when it came to Annabelle or Alea.

Surely Jakub hadn’t meant to pout, he truly didn’t, but a small. (or rather large) part of him was instantly bummed by the announcement that he and Kat wouldn’t be riding to the bonfire alone. He quickly switched the pout into an expression of skepticism. ”Brian, huh? I don’t like him already.” the sigma muttered, his thumbs hovering over the keys as he contemplated whether to send a response Kory’s way or not. Call him over-protective, or what Jakub’s own mind refused to call it, jealousy, but he couldn’t help but imagine all the different ways this ride with β€œBrian” could go. He slipped his phone back to his pocket, eyebrows knitting together as he pointed a warning finger towards Kat’s face. ”If he so much as looks at you the wrong way, I’ll chop off an arm.” his voice was low, but playful, letting Kat know that he wasn’t being serious. At least not entirely, even if he did throw a couple more warnings her way before the Uber finally arrived.

Kat snorted and replied, sarcastic, ”Yeah, sure you will big guy.” She ignored the way Jake’s proclamation made her heart skip a beat by exiting out of the Uber app to get to her snapchat, tapping the screen so that they were the ones in the screen and not the surrounding scenery. ”Say hi to snap, Jake,” she demanded grinningly, moving the camera goofily while making a face. ”On our way to the bonfire,” she quickly announced to the screen and added, jerking her head in Jake’s direction, ”Gonna see how long this jerk right here abandons me for the rest of the night.” The smirk on her face remained playful, but Kat was definitely going to post everything on snapchat just because she knew the face Jake was going to make due to her words would be too amusing for her not to have on some form of social media.

Soon enough, a dark blue Honda CR-V pulled up just as her phone chimed that their Uber was approaching, and Katiana exclaimed, ”Oh cool, right on time.” A moment later, and she pondered aloud, peering up at Jakub, ”Do you know who’s already there?” She could already see the outline of another being in the backseat from outside of the tinted windows, which made her smile dim just a bit. She wasn’t exactly over her disappointment, after all. Nevertheless, she pulled the back door open, confirmed that she was the one who had summoned the Uber and that her driver was who he was, before beginning to climb into it, anxious to get the ride over with.

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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