Childhood/Family Life:
It's safe to say that Katrina had a very sheltered upbringing. The only child of Caroline and Charles Amberly, both incredibly successful in their own rights, Katrina grew up wanting for nothing. Her mother is a well respected fashion designer and her father runs the global Amberly hotel chain specialising in luxury suites for the rich and famous. With both her parents having such demanding jobs, they were away working more often than not. Katrina saw more of her father as a kid though, and often travelled overseas with him during the holidays. As such, most of Katrina's growing up was spent in hotels. Why pay for an apartment when you already own the best?

With both her parents working away from home, Katrina was raised by a succession of nannies. She learned pretty quickly that if she didn't like one of them,
all she had to do was bat her eyelashes at Charles and pout and a new nanny would be in place by the end of the week. Most of the nannies were dismissed for having the audacity to say no to her. Being wealthy and absent parents, Caroline and Charles doted on their only child. Katrina got everything she ever asked for,
which may have contributed to her slightly bratty side.

While Katrina may have been spoiled growing up, she wasn't some airhead heiress. Her parents instilled the value of hard work into her and she never squandered the opportunities that she had. Wealth and beauty only opened so many doors. Education opened the rest. She didn't squander the first rate education her parents paid for. With her fellow classmates all being the children of wealthy men and women, there was a mutual respect for one another, although Katrina certainly rose to the top of the pile. Unfortunately, her rise through the ranks made her childhood friend, a girl called Eleanor Farraday, increasingly jealous of the attention Katrina was getting at school, both socially and academically. Their friendship became strained as the months went by, eventually coming to a head when they were both in attendance at a charity ball. Katrina walked into the cloakroom only to find Eleanor and Katrina's boyfriend having a very good time together. Katrina was absolutely shattered by this discovery and when it came to choosing university, Katrina bucked the trend of the traditional Ivy League and followed her dad's lead and came to Fulton. She didn't want to risk running into Eleanor or her ex on an Ivy League campus. Her father had been one of the Beta boys in his time, so it made sense that his only daughter would be an Alpha.

Quirks//Habits//Oddities:
Sweeps her hair over her shoulder while she's thinking about something
Adores walnut whips. Like it's almost an addiction.
Can type crazily fast.
Has an amazing memory for numbers.


Good personality traits:
Confident| Assertive| Loyal| Sensual| Poised

Bad personality traits:
Vindictive| Fickle| Finicky| Dramatic| Entitled

Personality:
Despite her privileged upbringing, Katrina is determined to make her own way in the world. She possesses an air of confidence that so many of the wealthy possess, one that comes with rarely having to worry about the ordinary problems people face in their lives. She has breezed through life for the most part so there are few scars on her personality. One of the few is that she struggles to trust people after her best friend and her ex-boyfriend had an affair. She has maybe one or two people that she trusts. Everyone else is kept at a distance. She has had a few meaningless flings since, but it will take a lot for someone to get past the walls she has up. This reluctance to let people in means that once she has let someone in, they have a very loyal friend. She will go to the ends of the earth for the people she truly cares about.

Having parents who gave her almost everything she wanted, Katrina has a somewhat entitled attitude. She knows what she wants, and she knows that she's going to get it. Woe betide anyone who gets in the way of what she wants. The same goes for the people who hurt her friends. She has a vindictive, mean streak that, luckily, few people have truly witnessed. She has a way about her that people rarely say no to. Another habit she picked up from her parents is her attention to detail. Katrina is a perfectionist. Everything has to be just so for her to be satisfied, which can be annoying as she starts nitpicking when she's nervous about something. This is often the only indication to those who don't know her that something is amiss, otherwise she is incredibly poised and rarely lets things get to her. On the rare occasion that something does go wrong, Katrina has a tendency to blow things out of proportion and it takes her a while to come back down.

Greatest joys in life:
Good coffee| Her Alpha sisters| New clothes| Boutique shopping

Greatest fears:
Not living up to her parents' expectations| Being hurt again

Life philosophy:
I am the destination, not a stop along the way.

Thoughts on Greek Life: Katrina was always going to be a sorority girl and she was always going to be an Alpha whatever it took. They're the best ladies on campus. Sure, the other sororities might have nice girls, or pretty ones, but no one can compare to the Alpha girls. The fact that ever single one of her sisters are model worthy is just an added perk.

Plans for after college: Katrina plans to be a high end fashion designer, whether on her mother's brand or one her own remains to be seen, but she is determined to make it.



Image

Build: Katrina stands at 5'8, weighs 127lbs and has a narrow, slight frame with delicate curves.

Hair Colour: Brown

Eye Colour: Blue

Distinguishing Marks: She is completely scar free and only has her ears pierced once.

Style: Classy, elegant, and timeless. Think old school Hollywood style and you're there.

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 :(

Abigail was filled with excitement and so ready for another start of the school year at Fulton. She survived her Freshmen year and the pledge initiation for the Alphas, which she was now apart of the sorority, and now she was moving in to house finally and that made her even more excited. While many people knew that Abigail was different from her sisters, she did not let that stop her from pledging Alpha anyway as their legacy is what really impressed her to join and not their attitudes. But that was neither here or there as Abigail walked around campus until she made it to the Alpha house, standing there and let out a small squeal before she walked up the stairs placed in front of the house and opened the door. It wasn't like she hasn't seen the inside of the home already but still her eyes widened as if she was just now laying eyes on the facility for the first time ever.

As she moved around the house now, she could not really hear any movement so she just decided to see who she was rooming with and with that thought, she ran up the stairs and towards the rooms. Her eyes came across a door that said Katrina and Jasmine as she made a face because now she was really worried about who she was rooming with but was very ecstatic to find out that it was her Alpha big sister, Adele, who was also the president of their sorority. While Adele wouldn't have been her first choice, she really couldn't be upset because she was much closer to her, along with Jasmine and Katrina than any other Alpha girl. She jumped whenever she heard movement happening and turned heel to go in the direction of where she heard the noise, just to see who was here with her.

Once Abigail turned the corner from her room towards Katrina's and Jasmine's, she let out a small scream as she saw Katrina on her bed, staring down at her phone. "Hey there, girl!" Abigail practically shouted with excitement as she walked further into the room now and stood at the foot of Katrina's bed now. "Seems like we're the first ones here. I wonder where everyone else is, honestly." Abigail shrugged her shoulders at the words that she had just spoken before turning her gaze back towards Katrina now before she looked down at her own phone and sent out a few texts to people.

To: Maddy :)
Are you on campus yet? I might need your help with my luggage. lol


To: Jas :D
Where are you at, girlie?!


To: Nate <3
So, I am already thinking of a pizza eat off later on. Do you accept?


To: Adele :D
Where are you, big sis? I'm at the Alpha house for now.


Abigail sent those messages out then went over to sit onto the opposite bed while her eyes were locked on Katrina. "So, how was your Summer? Anything new or exciting?" She asked her with a smile while she waited for her response.

location: Craft Social Club -> Beta House
outfit: X
dialogue color: #4C0000



A whole summer away and the city of Miami hadn't changed one bit. It was still entirely too crowded, annoyingly humid, and still held some of the worst traffic in the country, second only to New York. Still, it felt good to be back, for the most part. Not to mention Maddox had been able to avoid the chaos of moving day by making an executive decision to come early. It may have been an interruption to his precious sleep, but by now his bags were unpacked, his half of the shared room with Nathan was set and decorated to fit the Beta lifestyle, and he was currently on his third cup of espresso, possibly planning a fourth. He sat in his car, in a half-empty parking lot, his dark eyes fixed on the large sign in fancy cursive letters that read Craft Social Club over the glass doors. It had taken a while, several hours to be precise, for the Beta to convince himself to come here. Not that he had anything against the place in particular, but the reason for his visit left somewhat of a bitter taste in his mouth. No one was forcing him to do this, really. No one aside from his guilty conscience, which Maddox had long since given up on, but was somehow restored over the course of the summer. Now said conscience was putting him to work.

A couple more seconds of gawking at the neon sign crawled by before he finally left the comfort of his vehicle, with a heavy sigh of defeat, and made a grand entrance through the cafe doors to be greeted by a Colgate smile. "Welcome sir, can I set you up with a table?" the small girl chimed, her hands reaching around the podium to grab a menu. "That's alright, I'm staying.". His response pulled the girl's attention, and the charm switched flipped to the "ON" position, capturing her with a fabricated smile. "There is something you can help me with, though." The poor girl stood, stock still, as the Beta inched closer to rest his elbows on the low podium. "I'm looking for one of your waiters." he affirmed, his hands matching his words as he spoke. "About yay high, kinda cute, wears glasses, pretty Asian last I checked." The girl responded with a soft giggle, her eyes flashing to the restaurant scene behind her before turning back on Maddox. "If you mean Nick, he's not working today.".

If Maddox said no part of him expected the Kappa not to be there, he'd be lying. In fact, a good percentage of him imagined he wouldn't be, which was probably a big part of why he'd chosen to come by precisely on this day. And then there was the part of him that told him to leave with an "oh well, you tried" ans a pat on the back, but that just wasn't good enough. "Do me a huge favor? When he does come in, give him this for me." The small girl took a moment to eye the piece of paper she had just been given, a curious smile taking over her features. "Will do"

So maybe his plan hadn't been as successful as he'd hoped, but Maddox would be fibbing if he said he wasn't glad that it didn't. At the very least, he could check something off of his to-do list for the day and head back to the house. Most of the sophomores had probably arrived by now, Nathan included. He took a moment behind the steering wheel, while the car engine was still turned off, to reply to the messages that had come in before taking the route back to the Beta residence.

To: Miss Kitten (Katrina)
MSG: Annoying as hell -.- enough to make me miss you.

To: Honeybee (Abby)
MSG: On my way back. I volunteer Nate to help too, we'll be there soon to save the day!

"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?

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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


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

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.

After what felt like hours of her brother's concerned ranting down the phone, she was finally free. 'Take care, don't flirt with boys, don't drink too much.' Yeah, like I'd listen to that. Glancing at that few messages, she'd be sure to leave the messages a while before responding. It was part of her princess attitude charm. With a light hum, there was however one person she definitely did want to talk to.

To: Angel Face/Katrina

You here yet? My shoes are already killing me


And they were. They clicked with each step, almost covering the noisy sound of the wheels bumping again the crooked stone. She seemed to be confident enough, shoving through people without much of a thought. Eliza didn't really care who she moved, they should have gotten out of her way in the first place. Surprisingly enough, the new Alpha hadn't brought too many clothes with her. There was only two suitcases, a backpack and a handbag. Not a lot at all. She reached one of the benches, a simple glare clearing the few freshmen that lingered around it. Hauling her bags next to her, making sure she took up the whole bench, she took out her phone once again, simply debating whether she should reply yet or not.

From: Princey/Brooks

Need any help with your many bags, Princess?


From: Greedy Guts/Jax

Where is my favourite baker? I expect fresh cookies as payment for me having to text first. How's your summer been?


To: Princey/Brooks

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:Greedy Guts/Jax

I had to go on business trips with dad, good lord.
And you can make your own cookies, King. You're old enough.


She wouldn't usual hang tight where she was, but she genuinely wanted to know if Brooks would come to her aid. She very briefly checked her hair, running her fingers through the mass of brown locks. It went in well today, and she was rather proud of herself. Though, it didn't take long for her to become bored of waiting of him. Honestly, for someone so involved in business, Eliza sure lacked the gift of patients. Twiddling with her a stray strand, her eyes suddenly lit up.

To: Local Asshole/River

You here yet? How was your summer?


Nodding, satisfied, she hummed under her breath. Gosh, her bags were heavy. This is light luggage too, dreading to think how much she would have carried all the stuff she wanted to bring.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"What are we? Five?"


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Katrina shook her head as she typed a response.

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

Also, I hope you could hear me rolling my eyes


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

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


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


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


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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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...

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

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

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

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

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

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?"

Brooks felt happy with how he spent the rest of his move in day. Helping the girls at Alpha was better than spending any more time at Beta. Some of the girls didn't understand why he was a Beta too so it wasn't too different, but Abigail and Eliza made up for it. Katrina was there too, but Brooks and her never got along. There wasn't any animosity between them; they were just very different people. The evening was fun and it was sad to see it end.

Brooks spent most of the next running errands, checking in with his off campus job, and, of course, surfing. The last two were basically the same thing since he had a lesson at eleven. A thirteen year old girl who didn't seem all that interested until she found she couldn't stand on her board in the water. She became determined and by the end of the lesson, she could stay on it for the whole ride. It was moments like these that made Brooks happy with his career choice. He gets paid to do what he loves and teach people the wonderfulness that is surfing. It bummed Brooks out when he thought about giving all this up. He'd still be able to surf, but not as much once he graduated. Architecture or Marine Biology? The same choice he should've made last year. Both careers would be fun and exciting, but choosing was not what Brooks wanted. It wasn't like double majoring was impossible, but it would take up a lot of time. He sighed as he walked into the Beta house. "Why can't I make good decisions?"

After a hot shower, Brooks put on a pair of swim trunks for tonight's event. The location was sweet since it was right on the water, and had a pool. Brooks would be in one or the other before the night ended so it was best to be prepared. He was still debating on what shirt when someone spoke. Brooks jumped, not expecting it. "Well look at you, sexy Betsy." Brooks rolled his eyes before turning to his favorite Beta. Maddox was always a flirt and while Brooks was cool with it, he didn't fall for his charms. Brooks followed one simple rule with his fraternity brothers, 'don't bang your brothers.' It sounded like a disaster waiting to happen so he avoided it. "I swear your mission in life is to see me naked." Brooks teased. He decided on a simple, black tank and some flip flops to complete his look. Brooks wasn't trying to impress anyone so his typical surf boy look should be fine. Speaking of impressing people, Brooks returned and sent some texts before Maddox and him headed out.

To: Broski/Arden
I've got your back, broski! Try not to get super wasted? Don't need a repeat of freshman year :)

To: Music Maker / Alea
See ya at the bonfire? I need my favorite Zeta!

To: Picasso/Annabelle
I'll see you at the bonfire? Us artists have to stick together!

To: Princess/Eliza
Care to let me escort you to the royal bonfire, princess?


With his messages sent, Brooks returned his attention to Maddox. "Did you want to carpool with the Alpha girls or are we all just going to meet up?" Brooks leaned against his dresser, waiting for the older Beta.
