Childhood/Family Life:
"My childhood was pretty amazing, to be honest not arrogant. I grew up in a nice townhouse, with my mother and father, Patricia and Andy Beake and my brothers, which there were five of us. We all had to learn to fend for ourselves but I've learned a lot from them and we were all pretty close with one another. Well, I am the middle child out of all of them and I thank god that I was the baby, since we bully him a little bit but in a good way. I've later found out that there was suppose to be two of me but my other died moments after birth. I honestly cried when I found that out and just went silent for a few days but my brothers brought me out of my funk and took underneath their wings again. The fact of the matter is, I am still bothered by learning that I was suppose to have a twin. Growing up, I never really knew what I want to be in life, none of us did for real. But when I got to high school, my teachers and counselors helped me out a lot with my decision though. I've always been obsessed, yes, obsessed with the human mind and how others function in different situations. I've always wanted to help people as well, something like Social Work. So one day, I asked my counselor which university would be perfect for those both aspects and she had a collage of universities but Fulton University was the one that stuck out to me the most. I immediately sent in an application to the university along with my transcript and accomplishments that I have achieved in high school. It took days and weeks for me to hear something back from them. At first, I thought that I wasn't going to get accepted but boy, when that envelope came through the male with Fulton University on it, I literally dropped everything and read it and was highly stoked that I had got accepted. Everyone was proud of me, I called my two older brothers and told them the good news and they were happy for me. Of course, they thought I was lying but after sending them a picture message, their doubts turned into realization. Honestly, my first year there, I wasn't entirely happy since I was a long way from home and missed my family, whom I called every single day. But when I settled in, I stopped calling them. A few weeks later I was approached by a group of guys, who wanted me to join their fraternity but I declined since I wasn't at Fulton to pledge or join a fraternity. But they kept on coming my way and I decided to pledge anyway. I've been with the group of guys for about two years and I am now a big brother. They all know that I am focusing on my studies more than anything but I still make time for my brothers and of course, my girlfriend."

Quirks//Habits//Oddities:
"I sometimes like to bite my nails, just because and I've been doing it since I was a kid. I sometimes chuckle when there is awkward silence or I start to fidget. I also like to crack my knuckles every thirty minutes, which is a weird habit of mine. I know that my bottom lip probably hates me since I bit on it when I am nervous or thinking about something."

Good personality traits:
{Understanding, Intelligent, Confident, Aspiring}

Bad personality traits:
{Afriad, Bad-tempered, Impatient, Stubborn}

Personality:
"Well, most people would say that I am very arrogant when it comes to certain things but I correct them immediately and tell them that I am confident. My confidence level is way passed mediocre since I make things happen for myself. No task that I get will I ever back down from since I believe that I can accomplish it within a timely manner. I am also a very understanding person, meaning that if you ever need to talk or just have a conversation about something that is bothering you, then I am your guy. I will not get tired of hearing about your problems or bored with them - It wouldn't be right. I've listened to a person talk two whole hours about their problems and after my teachings to them, they are now a better person than they were before, in my own personal opinion. Like other people in the world, I do have traits that I am not very fond of. My bad temper for instance. It's not that I am an angry person, no, it's just sometimes I get very impatient with certain things and therefore my bad temper comes out along with that. My bad temper also comes out if someone disrespects me, my family or my girlfriend - I'll be ready to kill someone then. Most people think that I am difficult to deal with at times but I really am not. I swear. I just like things to be done a certain way and if it's not then I would just do it myself. Side note, I really hate procrastinators. Just saying."

Greatest joys in life:
"Hm, well, of course my family would be at the top of the list then it would be my girlfriend. Getting accepted into college would definitely be on that list as well, since I did have to wait close to three months."

Greatest fears:
"I am mostly scared of losing those close to me. And I am terrified of dying myself, well, without a purpose or without being remembered for something."

Life philosophy:
"I've always been intrigued with Jim Rohn's philosophy "If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree." That last part always make me laugh, a little bit."

Thoughts on Greek Life:
"I absolutely love being apart of Beta Gamma Omega. At first, I was a little skeptical about joining a frat since I thought that they were all jerks and assholes but not everyone is that way, well in Beta Gamma Omega anyway. The Greek Life at Fulton is actually quite different, it is very lively. I've grown accustom to the other fraternities and sororities and have enjoyed meeting everyone during Greek Week. It's a very fun experience to be apart of and I would encourage everyone to join a brotherhood or sisterhood when going to college."

Plans for after college:
"Well, I am doing a little internship with some of the local Social Workers so that way they can write me a letter of recommendation to whatever social office that I will apply to whenever I graduate."



Image

Image
Build:
"Well, I am about six foot three and weigh one-hundred and fifty-three pounds. I am athletically built, due to me always working out in the gym and going for a late afternoon jog, almost every day."

Hair Colour:
"I use to be pure blonde but since I dyed black then back blonde, I am still blonde though with a streak of black here or there."

Eye Colour:
"I have Ocean Blue colored eyes but in dim lighting, they will look Sky Blue."

Distinguishing Marks:
"I have a scar across my knee from trying to climb a fence when I was younger and it went bad. I had to have surgery and everything so I still have that scar. Tattoos and piercings are really not my thing since I do not want to ruin my perfect skin."

Style:
"Around campus, I usually wear t-shirts and jeans, along with a pair of sneakers or converses to match. At social gatherings, I wear buttoned up collar shirts and a pair of slacks, sometimes I'll wear the same at a party unless it's a paint party then it a white t-shirt and basketball shorts. I like to think that I have my own style though I like to think that I am trendy, at times."

So begins...

The campus was alive with excitement, anxiety, nerves, and anticipation. A new school year had begun the second students began moving back onto campus, but now, it finally seemed to hit them. For some, it was their final year at the beloved Fulton University, one of the top universities in the country. For others, it was their first year. Either way, there was a sort of buzz all around campus, a tingle each and every student felt as they greeted this year of opportunities and adventure. And what better way to start it all off than with the one thing on everybody's mind - Rush Week. Granted, these would only be the preliminary rounds, but who knows what could happen on the very first day...






As the track slowly moved to its conclusion and after receiving a nod from one of her favorite radio partners, Naomi officially turned the dial for the sound down, speaking into her microphone clearly with her ever present and rich British lilt. "That was 2 On by Tinashe, the best song of Summer 2014. You heard it here at Fulton U Hot 103.4." Ronnie, or Ronald when he was in their political science class with Dr. Skarsgaard who truly did not care for pleasantries or students, much less, grinned at her making a face at him for pressing one of the controls, which caused a squelching sound appear just after she finished her sentence. He played too much sometimes and she had half the mind to reach over the table of controls that separated them just to swat him on the head, but opted against it. She had to go soon anyway. She rolled her eyes at him before continuing, "This is your girl Nomi, NomiIzMe, and I'm about to turn everything over to my co-host, RonnieB. Don't get forget to holla at your girl at the beautiful Zeta Nu Delta House stand at the 2014 Fulton University Activities Fair. Hope to see you all there." With a mock salute and her favorite mix of India Arie and a beat from DJ Mustard, Naomi spelled her own exit and turned everything over to Ronnie, nodding to him as she set down her headset before exiting the large recording area.

Once outside in the busy hallway, she hoisted her bag over her shoulder and made her way through the crowd, the gold of her Zeta Nu Delta custom-made bracelet catching a glint from the sun, which peeked in through the barely closed blinds of one of the hallway windows. Smirking to herself as she saw a few noticeable freshmen males whispering to themselves and glancing over at her, she twirled a few strands of hair with her pointer finger, shooting them a sultry grin accompanied by a wink before turning the corner. The move was harmless and judging by an exclamation followed by a quiet roar of excitement from where they had, it had the desired effect. She didn't mess around with freshmen guys and never would, but it definitely was fun toying with them. Not that she would ever lead them on or anything of that nature, but flirting was harmless. Besides, she wouldn't be a true Zeta if she didn't have a bit of a flirt in her. A more genuine smile flitted across her face at the thought of her girls and without hesitation, Naomi whipped out her phone to text them just as she pulled into one of the many bathrooms on the first floor to simply check on her image.

To: Zoey, Amelia, Sierra
Omw 2 the booth. 1 of u better b there

Naomi wasn't particularly worried about any of the girls showing up late, she decided, as the text was sent. She had already specified that one of the other sophomores would set up with some of the baked goods Naomi had made the night before. She slid her phone into her back pocket before primping her hair. She had chosen one of her more fun outfits for the day. It was eye-catching enough to remind everyone that she was a fashionable woman, but simple enough to not do too much in. Naomi could be a lot of things, but she wasn't that much of a show-off. Besides, that tomboyish edge was her thing and she always had to make sure it was on point. After reapplying the natural-looking shade of pink lip gloss on her lips and that her hair was still on point, she gave herself one more appraisal before leaving the bathroom and heading out to one of the larger grassy areas of Fulton University, where the Activities Fair was to take place. Every year, the location changed and she actually preferred the area they chose for this year. It was spacious and open, and left room for some of the campus' more physically active organizations to show off. It was like a tame Zeta/Sigma party, except without the booze and heavy grinding. Just a paid DJ and everyone weaning out their favorites.

Once outside, it didn't take her long to get to her booth, which was closer to the Sigma table. She frowned a bit when she didn't see Miles yet and decided to find her favorite Sigma, setting her bag down beside her chosen chair and taking a seat. Folding one smooth leg over the other, she grinned at the Zeta who had watched the table in her absence before pulling out her phone to text Miles and her other best friend.

To: Miles
Slacking on your pres duties?

To: Sam
U better not b sleep

The Beta members were filing out of the fraternity house like a moving crew. Instead of carrying their luggage into the house, as they had done days earlier, today they were hauling out their Activities Fair equipment. Along with the expected items with information on the fraternity, the boys were carrying grills and coolers filled with steaks, burgers and hot dogs. The Beta Gamma Omega name spoke for itself, but the extra incentive of some good food couldn't hurt their prospective of nabbing the most promising freshman guys. Besides, anyone who knew Jack knew that he'd never pass up an opportunity for some good barbecuing.

Jack stood outside the front door of the Beta house, clipboard in hand, as he made sure everything was in order for the event. The clipboard was more for the show than it was for any real organizational reason, but he did check off every section of his "needed supplies" list as he watched them being carried out by Betas. "Phillips, there better not be any alcoholic shit in that cooler," he commented as one of the sophomores stepped past him. The slight frown and sudden about-face made Jack shake his head. "Let's keep it classy today, men. We're looking to attract Beta material - not the trash we leave for the Sigmas." He gave a mock salute to a few more passing guys who were lugging out tables and grills, and then glanced down at his list. Everything seemed to be taken care of. Today was guaranteed to be a success.

"Disney, make sure those get set up next to the Zetas. We don't want the smoke blowing on our Alpha ladies," he said with a smirk as Antonio and a couple of others began to carry out some of the grills. He hadn't seen Naomi yet this week and what better way to welcome her back than by reminding her that his fraternity topped her sorority any day? Of course, he also expected, and admittedly enjoyed getting a reaction from her. Their public relationship wasn't nearly as intimate as it was in the bedroom, but it was almost equally as passionate. Just in a different, less-than-friendly way.

Jack grabbed a water bottle from a passing box and emptied it in a matter of seconds. "Don't let any of these rookies burn that before I get down there, Atkins," Jack said light-heartedly as Bennett moved by with a cooler filled with meat. Just as he had with Antonio, Jack saw a lot of his own qualities in Bennett and had developed a stronger bond with him than some of the other younger Betas. As President, he knew that he had to essentially be a "Big Brother" to all of the younger guys, but some of them were easier to connect with than others. "And you make sure Elysia knows that's top-of-the-line organic steak too. Mom and Pop Reynolds don't skimp when it comes to funding Beta events."

When the last of the Betas had exited the house, Jack followed the group towards the center of campus where the event was being set up. He was pleased with how everything was looking. As he hoped and expected, the Betas were going to dominate the fraternity scene. It wasn't like there could be much competition anyway. The Kappas were just as exciting as watching paint dry and while Jack had respect for Miles, the Sigmas weren't even comparable to the Betas. Sorority wise, Jack planned on heading to the Alpha stand, but first, he needed to make sure that he could get a rise out of the Zetas.

"Looks good, guys," he commented as he toured the area that the Betas had set up their booth and grills in. As directed, it was stationed nearly on top of the Zetas. With a satisfied smile, he stepped towards the stand that Naomi, Zoey and one or two of the other Zetas sat behind. "For someone who's supposed to be a decent cook, I'm disappointed to see that this is all you could come up with, Malone," he said, shaking his head as he helped himself to a cookie from their table. There was no question that Naomi could cook, and Jack knew it first hand. Although their relationship was usually only sexual, they did occasionally hang out on the down low. Some time last year, there had been a larger-than-normal Sigma party that left the Beta house empty for a few hours. The two definitely spent some time in the bedroom but was probably even more memorable was the food she had whipped up after. He was still convinced that he was more savvy in the kitchen, but the night certainly solidified the attraction he sometimes hated having for her.

Jack smirked as Naomi fired back a few insults of her own. He tried to pinpoint what it was about her that turned him on. Could it have been the accent? The attitude, maybe? He did appreciate anyone with confidence. However, it wasn't like Elysia turned him on this way, or even Grace. Something had to be different about this girl to have such an impact on him and it was getting to a point where he needed to figure out what his feelings for her really were, and where they came from. "You're telling me that isn't what this is?" he questioned, returning to reality as he tossed the bitten cookie back onto the plate as she referenced icing covered cardboard.

He straightened up as she stepped around the table and in front of him, and he didn't do a good job at hiding his look-over of her as well. It was brazen, but as far as his Beta brothers knew, Jack was just over here to remind Naomi of her place and stir the pot a bit. That was all they needed to know, too. At her request for him to move, he put his hands up in a surrendering motion and took a few steps back towards the Betas. "Alright, alright. But hey, if you ladies want any Beta meat, just shout my name," he smirked. He was going to leave them with the innuendo, but couldn't help himself but to add in one more comment. "Or better yet, scream it. Zoey, you'll show 'em how to do it, right?" He hadn't acknowledged his fellow senior before, but gave her a cheeky grin and wink before making his exit.

The Activities Fair welcomed organizations from all across campus but judging by the stands set up, it might as well have just been a Greek fair. None of the other booths were comparable to the over-done displays that the fraternities and sororities sat behind. Not like Jack was complaining though, because between the Betas superb grilling skills and the picture-perfect look the Alphas had going on, the brother-sister houses were destined to dominate again this year. Any rusher that they wanted would be theirs by the end of the week. That was something that he was sure of, and something he knew Elysia was sure of too. He spotted the blonde seated in front of the Alpha table looking nothing short as perfect as she instructed her girls to complete the finishing touches to their area.

What surprised him wasn't the massive cake set beside her, or the matching outfits the girls wore. He was more shocked to see that neither Grace nor Emerson were seated at the table yet too. Emerson's absensce was peculiar for the obvious reason of her being a senior Alpha and more so, Elysia's current girlfriend. Grace could very well have been still at the house finishing some task Elysia had set for her. It wouldn't have been too surprising, considering that the president tended to be harsh on the junior, but he would have expected Elysia to want the whole gang to be there by the time the fair started. If nothing else, Grace was unarguably a good representation of the Alphas aesthetically speaking.

He knew that he should properly greet Elysia but decided to wait a while. Even if she looked calm and collected, the perfectionist inside of her was probably stressing about making sure that everything was on-point, and he didn't want to get in the way. Plus, he kind of wanted to wait for Grace to show up. Maybe he'd get lucky and would start the year off with her with the same connection he felt for Naomi. That would make things a lot easier, to say the least.

"Dan, how's the food looking?" he called out to the junior Beta who he hoped was monitoring the younger guys manning the grills. As he waited for a response, he took a seat in front of the Beta table and examined a stack of pamphlets that one of the guys had set down on the end of it. He had to admit, they looked pretty good. It outlined all of the recognition that the Betas had received for their service work, the many notable Beta alumni who had gone on to become majorly successful, and many of the other boast-worthy points of being a Beta.

Antonio was not an early riser. In fact, he preferred to sleep in, basking in the comfort of his blanket. However, it wasn't even ten before the sound of fists beating on doors, feet running up and down stairs, and a flurry of swears filled the halls of the Beta Gamma Omega fraternity house. Antonio sighed and dragged himself out of bed before his roommate had, reaching the shower first. Always the polite one, he didn't spend any more than twenty minutes with his bathing. He didn't even bother styling his hair that much, just running his fingers through it and using some gel to keep the spikes in place. He had shaved the night before so he wouldn't have to worry about it today, exiting the shared bathroom quickly for his roommate.

β€œS'all you, man!” He gave the other sophomore a pat on the back and waited until the door had been closed before he dropped his towel and began to work his way into his clothes. He was normally seen around campus looking dressy, a fan of button downs, vests, and a good pair of non pleated dress pants. However, he stuck with a pair of straight fit jeans, a blank tank top, and a black and red plaid button down over that. Just because he was looking to recruit dudes today didn't mean that he couldn't talk to some ladies. He slipped his beanie onto his head, letting some of his spikes peek out from under the front, and sprayed some of his favorite Antonio Banderas brand of cologne on before heading out.

He was downstairs and in the kitchen in an instant, needing only his phone, snatching a muffin out of Jason Phillips' hand and quickly dodged a punch aimed for his ribs. β€œOh! Gotta be faster than that!” His Hispanic accent was thick as he laughed his way to the fridge, grabbing a bottle of coconut milk, gulping it down as though it were the elixir of everlasting life. Everyone in his fraternity knew that he had a serious problem, never going any longer than an hour without having at least a sip of the stuff. He couldn't help it though; His mother was always introducing him to new foods and coconut milk had been his favorite drink since he was five years old.

He finished his drink quickly before putting himself to work helping the others get ready to put together their booth. He was excited for his first Rush Week as an actual member rather than a pledge.

He was tasked by Jack to help carry out the grills and make sure that they were set up near the Zetas. He smirked and gave a light nod. β€œYou got it, jefe!” He turned towards the others and motioned for them to follow him as they began filing out. β€œYou heard the man! Let's go see how long it takes Naomi to pop a vein.” He laughed with his fellow brothers as they continued on, spotting their site eventually. Just as Jack had asked, he guided the grill-bearers right next to the Zeta booth. He glanced over to see a number of Alpha girls fixing their hair and setting up their goods. As he was not one of the guys tasked to barbecuing, he gave Jack a wave while his President bickered with Naomi, taking himself over to the Alpha booth. He basked in the immediate smiles and waves but took to standing in front of Elysia. β€œYou said you had something for me...?”

He had gotten a text on the way there, Elysia telling him to come and see her. He watched curiously as she reached under the Alpha's table and pulled out a gift box wrapped in their colors. His brow shot up as he took it, quite gingerly, and inspected it. β€œCalm down, Disney. It's not a prank. Just open it,” she huffed. Antonio gave her a long stare before opening it, balking at what was within. β€œIs this the new Canon?!” It was a rhetorical question, as he knew that it was. β€œThese aren't supposed to hit the shelves until next year! How did you...?” He gave her an incredulous look as he dropped the box but held onto the camera. Elysia was clearly irritated by him simply dropping the box, shown in her eyes rolling as she picked it back up and put it back under the table. β€œMy uncle got it from his photographer who has it because... He's Marc Jasal. ”

Okay. That sort of explained things. β€œOkay... So, why give it to me?”

Elysia gave a light smirk and nodded towards Naomi, her voice lifting in an obvious move so that the Zeta President would hear her. β€œBecause I want the pictures to look absolutely perfect while you document Naomi's disappointment as we – again – rock the Rush Week.” Antonio gave a laugh at this, with Elysia not at her, and gave a nod. β€œAlright, I can do that.” He checked to make sure that an SD card was already in place and Elysia tapped his shoulder as he stood.

β€œAlso, don't forget to get shots of us,” she said as she motioned to her and the other lovely ladies behind her. Antonio gave a nod of affirmation before taking a few steps back. β€œAlright, let's break it in! Get together, ladies! Big smiles!” He waited until the had all gathered, forming two lines on either side of their booth, all of them striking comically outrageous poses. Once he'd taken the picture, they all dissolved into laughter. β€œWe'll catch a serious photo later, when every Alpha is here. But... For now.”

Antonio watched as Elysia motioned for two more tables to be brought in and he couldn't help but to balk some. When Elysia and Naomi competed, they really competed.

The amount of guys that stopped at the Beta table stressed Jack's belief that their house had no competition when it came to rushing interest. Every guy wanted to be a Beta, but since only some could actually make the cut, the rest were left to choose between the second-choice options of Sigma and Kappa. The thing about the Beta Gamma Omega house, as Jack believed, was that you could get the best of both worlds in it. Most of the guys were smart enough to pass their classes, and could definitely have a good time at parties. Maybe they weren't all valedictorians like the Kappas or drink until you pass out party animals like the Sigmas, but they could enter both realms when they wanted to. Jack was convinced, at least from his own experience, that Beta was the house that every guy wanted to join.

He spoke to as many of the rushers as he could, although only a few of them struck his attention as being potential Betas. He liked to think that he wasn't nearly as judgmental or critical as Elysia could be, but as he conversed with the freshman, he had his own list of criticism piling up.

You think we want someone like you representing our house? Buy some Proactiv and then come talk to me.

Lose the Bieber haircut, dude. This isn't 2009.

Weak handshake.

Too timid.

What the fuck kind of name is Ulysses?


The first definite no came after Naomi stole a water bottle out of one of their coolers and strutted past them. "Hey, someone should let her know that it's water and not vodka in there!" Jack called out after her. She didn't turn around or offer a response, but his eyes lingered on her moving form until she disappeared into the crowd. His attention was only directed back at three of the boys standing in front of him when the tallest of the three spoke to the other two.

"You hear that accent? Banging a foreign girl is on my college bucket list." Had it been said about anyone other than Naomi, Jack probably would have chuckled and thought well of the boy. He made an effort to act unaffected by the remark, but he had already decided this kid had zero chance of becoming a Beta.

Pretending not to have heard the comment, he continued his conversation with the three about the Beta house and charity work they did, before offering each of them a handshake again. Before they departed, he addressed the tall one. "What was your name again?"

He seemed to interpret the question in a positive way, as if he had maybe stuck out as being a likely candidate for the house and beamed with pride. "Kevin Sawyer."

"Alright, cool. Thanks for stopping by, guys. Make sure you grab some food, too."

After making a mental note to personally reject Kevin Sawyer later that week, he switched places with one of the other senior Betas who had been working a grill. Jack enjoyed cooking a lot, and grilling was his specialty. No matter how small the occasion was, he would fire up the grill outside the Beta house and cook steaks. It was a ritual for him to do it every night before a big exam and although he sometimes got slack for some of the fancier things he would cook inside, no one seemed to complain about his borderline obsession with barbecuing.

He was in his zone as he examined each piece of meat on his grill, occasionally calling over a sophomore to take the plates of finished foods over to the table they had set up. When he spotted Antonio returning to their booth, he waved him over. "Disney, would you do me a favor? We need some Alpha girls over here to, you know, brighten things up," he grinned. "Tell Elysia we want Grace, Natalie, that blonde sophomore chick... I think her name is Julie... and you take your pick on one more." He had seen Grace passing by moments before and was glad that she had finally arrived. He wasn't really partial to the Alpha girls that Elysia sent over since they were all attractive, but he wanted to actually talk to Grace. In return, he would have to send some Beta boys her way. It was something that the brother-sister houses did every year to make a point that as a member of either house, you were guaranteed to associate with the most attractive members of the opposite sex. An extra incentive, as if all of the perks of being an Alpha or Beta weren't already enough.

"Hunter, Bas, Dan, Charlie, any of you want to go hang out at the Alpha booth?" he asked. He was sure that the answer for most of them would be yes. It seemed hard for anyone to pass up an opportunity to socialize with those girls, especially with the feast-worthy amount of food he knew Elysia had brought.

Naomi grinned back at Zoey, shaking her head with amusement. While anyone else would have been upset since the Jell-O-shots were supposed to be minor-friendly for the sake of the school, leave it to Zoey to just say, "fuck it." And Naomi, despite how moral or how much of a good girl she could be, just loved being bad and could only be grateful. "Have I told you much I love you lately?" She exclaimed, waving to a few freshmen from orientation week. Her eyes fell on Karma and Kyle, who weren't that far away and Naomi quirked an eyebrow. She glanced from Karma to Kyle, and then back to Karma again with a questioning smirk. She even almost missed Zoey's questions with her curiosity, but glanced back to her best friend once it clicked in her head.

"Actually, that sounds like a great idea. We have an hour before the jamboree and no one's doing anything. I'll put it in a mass text," she said and pulled out her phone before considering. As much as she knew that some of her friends hung out with people she didn't really talk to, why not invite everyone she liked? Everyone could chill out and if they didn't like each other, they could always just not show up. It wasn't going to kill her. Besides, it was hot and she wanted the col water of the ocean on her skin. Not to mention to wear the new bikini she had bought with her mother's new boytoy's money. "Emery? Hmm...I think he was at the Alpha table, not really sure." The placement this year definitely put certain houses by people they normally wouldn't be associated with. Maybe it was the school's new way of creating relationships, she surmised while typing out her message, hoping she didn't forget anyone.

To: Bennett, Sam, Miles, Sierra, Amy, Poppy, Giselle, Daniel, Emery
Idk what y'all plan 2 do, but Zetas r hittin up da beach b4 da jamboree. Any1's invited.

Biting her lower lip softly, Naomi glanced over at the Beta table before shaking her head. She really needed to stop doing this. She was making herself obvious the more she looked in his direction. However, she also couldn't help it and decided to interact with people as a distraction, but not before sending one more text.

To: Jack
Didn't think I'd invite ur guys 2 da beach w/out u. Didn't want u 2 be lonely, Reynolds. Don't ever say I didn't do anything 4 u

Her first target was Karma, who hadn't drifted off yet and who Naomi was more than happy to greet. Side-stepping a few people who were in line for either Beta or Zeta foods, Naomi made her way to the blonde, smiling widely. "Hey, gorgeous. You look great!" She exclaimed and nodded to Kyle with the smile still present. "Hey, Kyle." Naomi turned back to Karma then. "See any booths you liked yet? Ooh, and what are you both doing after this? The Zetas and a few other people are hitting up the beach before the jamboree." She stated, including Kyle in the end. After all, who the hell didn't like the beach?

Her freshman year was off to a shaky start. Dori was scheduled to move in with the rest of the freshman yesterday, but she didn't make it to the school until the early hours of this morning. The first hitch was expected: her foster parents couldn't afford (or didn't want to front the cash, as Dori would say) to have her fly straight from Kansas City to Miami, so she was put on a multi-stop flight that was supposed to land in Fort Lauderdale around three in the afternoon on Monday. She would then have to take an hour long bus ride to Fulton. It was an inconvenience compared to how simple things could have been if she had just flown into Miami or had parents who would drive her and her luggage down, but had things gone as planned, she would have been fine with it. In a perfectly "just my luck" fashion, however, things didn't. Her flight left Kansas an hour late due to storms, and was delayed once again for two additional hours during her layover in Detroit. When she finally landed in Florida, it was nearly seven o'clock and to make matters worse, two of the three bags of luggage she had brought were missing. After three hours of dealing with customer service and hitting dead end after dead end, the bags were discovered in a different terminal. By now, no buses were running the long route to Miami and Dori was forced to spend the night in the airport hotel, which luckily, was complimentary as an apology for the luggage mishap.

This morning, she took the first bus to Miami and after a bit of rush hour traffic, arrived at the university at around eight-thirty in the morning. She was flustered from the previous day's chaos but consistently reminded herself that she needed to remain positive. She was finally doing something with her life and if she started on a bad note, there was no way that she was going to excel here. If nothing else, at least the weather in Miami was delightful, she considered. After hauling her luggage to the wrong dormitory and then finally to the correct one, she managed to check-in and get all of her paperwork sorted out before finally arriving in her room for the year. She had been lucky enough to be placed in one of the newer dormitories so while she shared a common room and bathroom with two other girls, they each had small, but separate bedrooms. The girls' names were listed as Jessica and Karma, but when Dori got to the dorm room, neither girl were there. She helped herself to the only unclaimed bedroom and although it was certainly a step up from some of the dorms she had toured last year, it was still your typical barren dormitory. Her first step of the day was making her bed, which consisted of putting on a simple set of white sheets and a purple comforter that brought a pop of color to the room. She hadn't brought any posters or photos to hang on the wall, so besides setting up some of her school supplies on her desk and plugging her phone in to charge, there wasn't much left to do. She wasn't satisfied with the room's look, but she didn't have much time to fret over it anyway. She realized how hungry she actually was and after fingering through the folder filled with papers that the dorm adviser had given her, she saw that there was an activities fair scheduled to start within the next few hours.

After changing out of the casual tank top and gym shorts that she had arrived in and into a more presentable outfit, she left the dormitory and navigated her way across campus to one of the dining halls. She was on a limited meal plan but after such a painful commute, she wasn't about to skimp on some comfort food. A bagel, blueberry muffin and cup of yogurt later, and she was finally on her way to the Activity Fair. For once, this destination wasn't hard to find. The entire grassy air of the courtyard was filled with different stations representing different organizations. Dori was definitely interested in getting involved with clubs on campus so she took her time as she moved from booth to booth. She put her name and email address own for a fair amount of clubs: the Spanish club, study-abroad program, fashion club, African heritage club, community service leaders, and intramural basketball to name a few. Although she didn't plan on actually dedicating herself to every one of them, she was interested in at least going to the first meeting for each of them and figuring out if she wanted to be involved after giving it a shot. Plus, nearly everyone she spoke to at the booths seemed outgoing and kind. Even if she didn't plan on joining every club, at least she was making friendly acquaintances along the way.

As she approached the end of the courtyard, she found the most amount of people and as she got closer, she realized that it was because this was the Greek life area. There were six booths representing the three fraternities and three sororities and although passing the fraternity booths was easy, she wasn't sure where to start with the sororities. Hell, she wasn't even sure if she wanted to join a sorority! Each of them had their own unique look but they all shared the appearance of being well put together, especially compared to some of the club booths she had passed earlier. Between the apparent dress code among the girls and the elegant display of foods, the Alpha Theta Pi booth struck her as being the "royalty" sorority. The girls all looked very prim and proper - the type who Dori imagined would attend dΓ©butante balls and take etiquette lessons on their days off. It was probably far from true, but their coordinated outfits and over-the-top food tables gave her the impression that they topped the school's social hierarchy. When she stopped to get a glass of lemonade from the table, the two girls working the refreshment table seemed to solidify that image for her. The blonde and brunette were both gorgeous, as was the boy conversing with them, but their smiles and attitudes seemed superficial. Although Dori didn't engage in conversation with either and continued on her way after grabbing the drink, she got the sense that they weren't in great moods. She wasn't aware of the reasons behind it, but it didn't give her the best vibes. As she continued though, she caught the eye of another Alpha, who was probably of Asian-decent and appeared to be closer in age with her. This girl seemed to be much more pleasant, but still thinking the house probably wasn't for her, she just took one of the pamphlets that the girl was distributing and offered a cheerful, "thanks!" before walking to the next booth.

Despite having a big breakfast, Dori couldn't resist plating a loaded baked potato and slider when she reached the Zeta table. Maybe the smell of the Betas barbecuing had something to do with it, but suddenly, she was ready for lunch. "This is amazing," she gushed to the brunette manning the table, after almost finishing the baked potato in a few bites. In an effort to make it clear that she wasn't just there to mooch off of the free food, she took one of the Zeta fliers off of the table and gave it a quick scan. "So, do I have it right that you guys are like, the party sorority?" she grinned, then eyeing the Jell-O shots on the other side of the table.

Time//Day
3:20// Tuesday Afternoon






By three in the afternoon, a few of the non-Greek organizations had begun cleaning up their areas and dispersing and when twenty minutes passed, so had some of the Zetas. They were still in the process of moving things since the fair had drawn to a close and the setting up for the jamboree would be commencing soon. Naomi had sent off Kyle, Bennett, and Karma after a few more minutes, not really thinking about inviting Kyle to their beach excursion - not out of not wanting him there, but because it had slipped her mind until he had already disappeared into the crowd. Besides, Miles would tell him, right? Before they began cleaning up their own section, Naomi had run across a new girl near the Zeta booth who had been talking to Zoey. Once Karma had confirmed that she needed a ride and Naomi had agreed to be such, she had returned to her girls and seen the rusher checking out snacks and talking to other members. When one of the Zetas saw Naomi, they pointed her out to the new girl, whose name she had been told was Dori. "Hey, well, I'm Naomi. We'll probably start heading out soon, but you should come to the beach. A few friends and such are gonna be there, and who knows? You might just fall in love with us." She had said, ending on a wink before waving the girl off and making plans.

While Naomi had gotten Ever, Rebecca, and Angel and a few other notable Zetas who weren't going to the beach to assist more with the cleaning up, she still found herself helping out - not because no one was following her orders, but because she didn't want to put everything on them. She had just returned a few of the tables given by the Student Government Association when she decided to send out another mass text, including Thatcher who she hadn't seen at the fair at the time.

To: Daniel, Zoey, Karma, Bennet, Miles, Zoey, Amelia, Sierra, Sam, Poppy, Giselle, Thatcher
Headed back 2 my house 2 get changed. Any1 who needs a ride, c u in 30 mins. Otherwise, c evry1 at the beach :D

Sliding her phone away and waving off Lianne, Naomi headed in the direction of the Zeta house. She was immediately swamped with girls running in and out of their living space; some because they were going to be late for classes or work, and others simply because they had plans for the rest of the afternoon. Laughing at one of the girls who practically squealed upon seeing her boyfriend and practically pouncing on him, Naomi closed the door behind herself and jogged upstairs to get to her room. Luckily for her, being a senior and a president had its perks, which included a slightly larger room, which was a single. She definitely appreciated that, she realized, as the silence there was enough to remind her that she did, in fact, have plans. Running her hands over her face lightly, she decided to take a quick shower. It was a thing of hers; she could never change in to one outfit without at least taking a quick dip in the shower unless she was getting ready for bed. Once out, she applied a sunblock on her smooth skin with the same warm, sweet and nutty fragrance she was known for. Afterwards, Naomi rifled through her selection of swimwear before deciding upon one of the newer ones. She hadn't actually meant it when she told Jack that she had been planning on wearing a new bikini; she just needed something to say to get back at him. However, she liked the strappy zebra-print bikini her mom had picked out in her attempts at winning the "Mother of the Year" award. "Yeah, right," she muttered to no one in particular at the thought before finishing up.

Once she was officially ready dressed and her bag was full with her towel, wallet, and a few books and magazines to read, Naomi slid on some sunglasses and was applying some rose oil lip balm as she descended back down the stairs. The house was only a bit quieter with the sound of pitter-pattering from various rooms and the hallways. With about ten minutes to spare, Naomi traipsed into the kitchen to make herself a smoothie, which consisted of strawberries, bananas, vanilla yogurt, and blueberries. Once it had gotten to a smooth consistency (she hated ice in smoothies), she poured the thick liquid into a travel cup with an attachable lid and straw. She took a sip just to taste it and while sucking that down leisurely, walked out of the house, ready to hang out at the beach. Naomi walked across the street to her 2014 Tahoe, climbing in and cranking on the radio while she waited for people.

β€œNah. She's just entertaining the thought and making new friends. She'll be an Alpha for sure. Bet it'll piss off Grace if I made Karma President instead of her.” She smirked on the last part, almost sneering before flipping her hair over her shoulder and continuing. β€œAnd, yes. He did tell me. However, Grace showed up five hours late and didn't even come home last night. Nobody knows where she was. Zoey probably has an alibi. Formerly known as a lie to cover for her ass. So she's on refreshment duty. As for Natalie... She's been stealing again and I'm going to make an example out of her later today. And it won't be just handling clean-up duty either.” She gave a shrug of her shoulders before sighing, shaking her head. β€œAlso, yes. The beach sounds awesome. Now, shoo. I don't want you over here making googoo eyes at the dunce.” She shooed Jack away, thinking that a beach trip would be wonderful. Plus, it was always fun to crash a Zeta party.

She turned as Daniel brought a group of girls over, immediately giving a bright smile. β€œThanks, Danny,” she exclaimed before offering the girls some of the food laid out. β€œHey! I'm --”

β€œYou're Elysia Hanta! Your mom is Isi Hanta, right?!” The smaller of the five girls exclaimed loudly and Sia couldn't help but to smirk just the tiniest bit. She was an Alpha; she loved recognition. β€œYou are correct, young lady. I'm also the President of this chapter. Now, I know you may be tempted to pledge on my merit, but I do encourage you to explore Zeta Nu Delta and Theta Chi before making your choice. But, I'll go ahead and give you the deets on who's who mkay?” She gave the girls a dazzling smile, allowing her ego to be stroked by their attentive and adoring gazes and excited giggling. β€œAlpha Theta Pi is a house brimming with legacies. As you can see, we pride ourselves in appearance and formalities. You'll find that most of our girls are in possession of bright minds and excellent leadership qualities. We host a number of bonding activities on and off campus and concerning job opportunities, neither of the other two compete. With our name on your resume, you're guaranteed a top notch employment at a number of places. Especially since plenty of us have family ties with very prestigious employers.”

She turned towards the other girls and began to indicate some to stress her point. β€œDelilah Young is the daughter of Lan and Nathaniel Young. Those of you who are interested in the medical field will likely know their names. And then you have Julie Matthews; Her parents are two of the best lawyers east of the Mississippi. Diana Jenko; Her mother is Leila Jenko, who I'm sure you're familiar with from CSI: Dallas. Her father is the award-winning director, Michael Jenko. Then you've got our lovely twins, Jemma and Cassidy Rivers. They come from a family of well-renowned thespians.”

Elysia very much enjoyed bragging about her girls, pointing out a few more before turning to see the group of girls had expanded by about a dozen or more, lighting up her face. β€œYou'll find many girls of many talents here and despite the rumors you may have heard, a prestigious family name is not needed to pledge. Nor are foul attitudes welcome. We look for young women who are ready to tackle and change the world while remaining poised and graceful. We offer you the tools you need to succeed in life as well as a lasting bond of sisterhood. If you'd like to find out more about us, we're holding a few events this week. We'll be at the jamboree tonight, we're having a foam party on a boat tomorrow night, a brunch on Thursday, and a hike on Friday. Don't worry about remembering it all – You can find everything in the pamphlets as well as our Facebook, Twitter, and blog.”

Antonio watched as Elysia worked the crowd, moving between the Alpha and Beta booths to capture both video and photography footage. As the girls dispersed after taking numerous photos with the Alphas and adding many of them on their social media sites, Antonio made his way to Elysia with a grin. β€œI'm surprised none of them asked for an autograph,” he chuckled. She only rolled her eyes. β€œWhy would then when they can boast that they know me personally? I never asked for Arturo Vitolli's autograph,” she pointed out. He nodded in agreement and they went their separate ways to finish their day. She eventually shed her blazer with the other girls. While the original afternoon heat was of no bother to them, it only got hotter and she couldn't wait for the time for the beach to come. But it seemed that the hours flew and they were soon packing up shop. The Alphas had dispersed before the other Greek houses, Elysia wanting to take care of business before heading out. She pulled out her phone and texted Karma as she walked with the others back to their cars with her sorority and a number of helping hands in tow.

To: mitaksi ki
karma-babe! heyyy. we're headed out early. gotta take leftovers to the soup kitchen & have a meeting. c u @ the beach β™₯ β™₯ β™₯




Location: Alpha Theta Pi Sorority House
Time: 3:15pm




β€œAlright, loves! Great job at the booth today. I saw a lot of potentials, but we've still got a lot more time to get to know them personally.” Elysia stood in the center of the common area with her hands clasped together. β€œYou guys worked really hard today and I'm very proud of you. For that, we're treating ourselves to the beach. More specifically, we're crashing a Zeta beach party. But, before that, we've got something serious to discuss.”

She spared no time before turning her gaze to Natalie, a cheery smile on her face. β€œNat, darling, you'll find that all of your things have been packed and are waiting in your room. I really stress the your part. Everything that you've borrowed and stolen has been returned to the rightful owners. As of this very moment, you're no longer a sister of Alpha Theta Pi and I never want to see your face in this house again. Really, don't even come to the parties. If you decide to do something stupid, perhaps talk trash behind our backs or attempt to slander the sorority or anyone within... Well, you'll find that life will become quite difficult for you after. You'll find that you have new dormitory arrangements, the information is with your things. Payment has been handled for this semester because I'm really that nice. Now, shoo.”

She spoke in gentle tones, her trademark attitude when addressing "problem girls". She found that it was often more effective than using bitch tones or yelling. She and nearly everyone watched as Natalie sputtered for words to protest but inevitably came up blank and stormed up to her room to gather her things. Everyone watched then as her gaze fell to Grace. She withheld a smirk and instead retained a commanding air. β€œGrace Drexler. We've been planning this for quite some time now and for over twenty-four hours we were up preparing. We cooked, we cleaned, we primped, and we rehearsed. However, I don't recall you being here through any of that. Oh... Because you weren't. Not only did you miss our preparations, you also missed setting up. To top it all off, you found it acceptable to show up five hours late and act as though you'd done nothing wrong. Not even an apology. That was really quite rude. Extremely rude, actually.”

She paused, mostly for dramatic effect, small part to gather herself and keep herself from letting anger seep in and make her do something stupid. β€œThis is not the first time you've acted in a way that is unbecoming of an Alpha. You're a Junior so you should know better. Instead, you flaunt your family's money and the sorority's name as though they are "get out of jail free" cards for inexcusable behavior. Long story short: You act like a bitch who can't be touched. But the fact of the matter is, everyone suffers consequences in life. Your little buddy Zoey might apologize for your silly behavior, but that shit shan't happen here. Don't worry -- I won't give you the boot. Not yet. I'll give you the chance to prove yourself. However, there will be punishment.” Her gaze flickered to Delilah for a moment and she couldn't stop her perfectly glossed lips from curling into a smirk.

β€œBeing a Big is more than simply having a younger member to adore you. Nor is it the recruitment of minions who will cover for your ass when you step out of line, nor are Littles pets. A Little is a sister. She is someone to set an example for and help throughout her years with this family and a Little should look to their Big the most. Many of you Bigs, as I, can agree that it's a very special bond that is formed -- Bigs have quite an influence over Littles. A Big is a mentor, an advisor, a hand to hold when shit gets tough. Bigs are the ones that Littles turn to before anyone else. A Big is a role model and should be a shining example of what their chapter represents. Unfortunately, you're not a role model. At least... Not a good one. In fact, you're a terrible role model and I really don't want you tainting Delilah. Or anyone else for that matter.” It was clear where this conversation and she soon lifted her chin, her tone dropping from gentle to stern and cold. β€œAs of this moment... Your privileges of being a Big are revoked until further notice. You're barely fit to be an Alpha, much less a Big. Delilah will join Karmilla as my Little now while you reevaluate your deplorable behavior.”

While the top portion of Naomi's body was kept in the vehicle, the rest of her leggy form was on full display, her long legs hanging out the driver's side door comfortably. It was when her phone buzzed that she pulled herself completely in the vehicle. crawling to an upright position to fully type out a response to Amelia.

To: Amy
Idk about both, we'll see

It wasn't that she was trying to exclude either Kellin or Kyle. Once Amelia, Bennet, and Karma arrived, she would have only one seat left unless someone wanted to sit in her trunk. Granted, it was spacious enough, at least for a female body and Naomi herself used to love sitting back there when she was in someone else's car because she could take a nap. However, unless someone wanted that or opted to lap up, there was no way all of them were fitting in the car unless everyone wanted to be squeezed in. She didn't have to wait long for her fellow Zeta because Amy was soon walking over and in retaliation to the girl's stuck out tongue, Naomi made a goofy face, which consisted of her tongue sticking out on the side and her eyes going to the sides. "Hello, my love." She said and smiled at Amy's sign of affection. At the compliment, Naomi swiped at the curly strands she left from the updo dramatically while exclaiming, "I try!"

Naomi giggled a beat afterwards as Amelia climbed into the passenger seat and pulled her own legs upwards, her lithe form allowing for her feet to rest on the seat and tucked firmly towards her plopped bum. Considering the fact that she wasn't known for sitting in certain positions for too long, her actions and show of her flexibility weren't uncommon. She peered down at her phone and answered Amelia distractedly, "Um, go ahead. These people need to hurry up. There's a wave calling my name." The last part was directed more to herself, or to the folks she was waiting for and as she swiped over the screen of her phone with her thumb, Naomi also reached over to the cup holder for her smoothie to sip on it. Luckily, it didn't take long for Bennet to text her just a few seconds before Kellin appeared. Smiling back at the blue-haired beauty, Naomi sent out several messages.

To: Karma
Hurry! Ur seat might get taken ;p

To: Bennet
Then u better hurry up

To: Zoey
Got a full car. Ride with Tori and the others, or Miles and Sam. Srry, love.

To: Daniele, Giselle, Poppy, Miles, Sam, Thatcher
Heading out soon. If I don't c u at the beach, c u later. Too hot 2 b waiting around
