Personality:
Linnaea is an actress, to say the least - she acts every day. On the outside, she can come off as a bit of an 'Ice Queen' - she'll turn down anyone who asks her out, and will make sure it hurts. She'll join in with the bitching about someone else, if she hates them too. But it's an act, as inside, Naea is extremely kind and sweet, and loves to help anyone out. She just has one problem - being a Prep means that it's social suicide to help out anyone that's not 'On her level'. Naea detests herself for it, and has therefore made it her goal to change the views of the A Listers - from Tyrants to Role Models.

Linnaea has trouble with herself. When she is in a group of people, she is bubbly, enthusiastic, and friendly. However, on her own, she becomes self-loathing, taking hours to plan out outfits and what she is going to wear to EVERYTHING. Along with that, she is very self-critical - if she doesn't get good grades, or misses something out in a routine for that week, she will have a panic attack when she is on her own. She can also be seen scrubbing her hands until they bleed, and everything must be in order, and folded and colour coded. On top of that, she has social phobia, which is one of the main reasons why she acts like she does. This is the fear of being embarrassed and turned away, so she tries to eject the possibility of that as much as she can. She is very good at swallowing her fear, though, especially with her clique.

If you manage to break through to the real Linnaea, she is an extremely sweet, affectionate young lady, who will do anything to give you a hand. She adores helping out, especially with animals. She feels guilty if she cannot give anybody the help they need, which can leave her vulnerable. She loves being herself, and she feels she can be when she isn't in her clique, and when she is with people she trusts, and not in large groups. Naea is a shy girl inside, and rather lonely, so she enjoys the personal company and will be glad to answer any questions you may have for her. Furthermore, Naea is an insomniac, due to her recurring nightmares, and can appear tired. If she does, she can be a lot more snappish, but she's really just longing for a hug, although not many people can guess that due to her grumpiness when she is tired.

Greatest joys in life:
"I love being able to communicate with others in other languages, along with my horse, Ace."
Speaking other languages | Her Horse, Ace
Greatest fears:
"It's a secret..."
Deep inside, she is mortally afraid of intimacy, embarrassment, and dying.
Priorities:
"I have to not fail. That's for sure."
Changing the outlook of A Listers (although slowly) | Passing School | Looking her best | Her horse
Life philosophy:
"It's time enough for everyone to be equal. Nobody should be treated differently for who they are, and who they want to be, regardless of background."


Image

Image
Favorite color:
"It has to be mint green, and cream."
Least favorite color:
"Mustard yellow, and brown. Ick!"
Music:
"I really enjoy dance and house music, along with rock. But it's pop to everyone, okay? My music taste is a secret."
She loves electro/dance/house music along with rock, but pretends to like pop music.
Food:
"Mexican and Chinese. It's just - Mmm!"
Literature:
"There's way too many to choose from."
Naea's favourite book series at the moment is the Divergent Series by Veronica Roth, but she also enjoys the Fault in Our Stars, Harry Potter, and The Mortal Instruments.
Form of entertainment:
"Mostly I spend my time with my horse. But I cannot get enough of the internet, or video games."

"Naea. NAEA! Wake up!"

Linnaea's eyes fluttered open at the sound of her little sister's voice. The smell of hay and horses drifted through her nose, and she felt a soft nose nudging her stomach. She shook herself awake and realized that her pillow was her horse, and she was in his stable.

Of course. She'd come in here when she couldn't sleep last night.

She looked around the comfortable, straw lined box, until she fixed her eyes upon Alice, who was leaning over the stable door. Ace whinnied in protest, nudging her again. She wiped the sleep from her eyes, and dragged herself to her feet. "What's up, Alice?" She mumbled sleepily to her sister. The wide eyed little girl, with her curly locks flowing down her back, swung on the stable door, and Naea petted her horse affectionately. "I guess we had better feed them, huh?" She grinned at her little sister, wide awake, before walking over and exiting the stable, closing the door behind her. The palomino gelding stood up and poked his head over the stable door, whinnying in protest for his food. Naea grinned and rolled her eyes at the horse's cheek, and walked into the feed room to get his breakfast ready, along with Luna's.

A few minutes later, the noise of horses crunching pony nuts and sugar beet in her ears, Linnaea brushed herself off and headed out of the stables. Judging from where the sun was, she would say it was somewhere just before 12. She brushed her jodhpurs off, and finally checked her phone, before picking up Alice and giving her a piggy back.

"Don't you have something to go to, today?" Alice's chipper voice broke the silence as they walked through their mother's carefully preened and cared for gardens. The trickling of a fountain could be heard, signalling that she was almost back at the house. She almost swore out loud as she realized what today was. "Oh my god!" She moaned, angry that she had let herself forget. "Come on, kiddo, it's gonna be a bumpy ride!" She yelled, taking off at a run. Her sister squealed in joy, and giggled like a mad thing. They were soon back at the house, at which Alice prompty slid off of Naea's back, and ran into the living room. As Linnaea predicted, the sound of cartoons soon came from the living room. Naea, smiling to herself, headed up the stairs to her room, before closing the door, and searching for the reddest bikini she could find. She was definitely not in the mood for random people hitting on her today. Before she began her search, she got out her phone and sent Allie a quick message.

TO: Allie <3
Red, yellow or green?


She didn't wait for a reply, but instead continued to search for a simple red bikini. She found one, encrusted with diamante around the hems, before putting it on and sliding into her outfit for the party. It was simple, but her style. She brushed her hair and tied it into a high, messy ponytail, and went into her bathroom to wash her face, and apply some perfume. Finally, she was ready. Truth be told, she was extremely nervous about the whole thing, but she wasn't about to let it show. She checked herself over one more time in the mirror, before leaving her room and shutting the door, and hurrying back outside to where her car was. She slid inside, checked her phone again and started the engine. She had second thoughts about the color - after all, she was single, she should technically be in green - but then disagreed with herself again and texted Isaiah hurriedly.

TO: Isaiah
On my way. Be there in 10.


She hurriedly drove out of the driveway and was on her way before she could change her mind again. It wasn't a long drive to Isaiah's new place, and sure enough, she was there in ten minutes. It looked like there was somebody else here, too, as she had spotted a car she wasn't sure she recognized. She slid out of the car, tugging her cardigan around her shoulders even though it was hot, slipped her phone in her pocket, and locked her car, taking a deep breath and walking up to Isaiah's home. It was very modern style, and Linnaea didn't remember ever visiting before, but she decided she liked it. Most of it was made of glass, so she had no doubts that they had probably already seen her. She smiled to herself and hurried up to his front door, and knocked on it a few times.

After texting Alessandra that she was at the mall, Shailene parked and hurried into the store, sighing to herself when she heard the flash of a few cameras. You would think after years in this one profession that the paparazzi would at least attempt to be subtle, but she wouldn't pay them any mind. She didn't bother texting Cat back, she would do it later. After all, she hadn't actually expected her friend to come. Her Allie's interactions were a hit-or-miss. On some days, the two could get along, on another, they were too much for either to handle. Shay slid her shades off when she entered the building, not exactly sure where to go. She could go into Solistice, but didn't she already own nearly fifty pairs of shades already. The obsession began when she was a around seven and she loved seeing the older celebrities rocking sunglasses of varying sizes. In her hands currently was a pair from Chanel that she remembered Beyoncé had worn back in the early 2000s, though Shay's were definitely more modern and personalized. Sighing again, she headed over to Starbucks.

"Grande Passion Tango tea, thanks," she said, slid her card, and waited for her drink. After getting a text from Chadwick stating that he would probably go in another color (whatever his dislike for the color yellow was unfounded and hardly unfair since it would do him justice, but again, she wouldn't pay it any mind or argue. It wasn't like she had actually expected him to listen to her.), Shay wandered aimlessly through the large shopping center, first stopping in Solistice against her better judgment. She sipped at her fruity tea idly and ended up buying about four more pairs of shades, which she would undoubtedly feel bad about later. But now wasn't the time to care. She had to kill time waiting for her friends and after wandering a bit more aimlessly, she headed over to Beach Bunny Swimwear to check out bathing suits.

She was still trying to decide if she was opting for a bikini or one-piece. There were always sexy one-pieces and bikinis were nice yes, and they showed off her tummy which she definitely yummy in her eyes, but which was the move she was willing to make? Steering clear of the raunchier selections (she liked sensual, yes, but taste was definitely was a requirement), Shay's eyes landed on a sexy little number and she hurried up to text Alessandra.

To: Allie
Where r u!? I think I found the 1!!





Image



To: Isaiah
Five minutes out. Be there soon.


After first sending a text to Shailene about her never dressing him again (there was nothing wrong with the outfit, he just really hated the color and well, the shorts were a joke and they both knew it), Chad had thrown another outfit together and put it in his duffle bag along with two extra towels in case Shay forgot her own, which she had always been liable to do. He would deal with the yellow for now, but he knew himself well enough to know that the color was just not his favorite. It was too bright. Shay would joke that it was just him trying to dress "as dark as his soul" or whatever bullshit line she would try to feed him, but it was whatever. He would wear her little outfit. But the second he was ready, he would put something else on. So, he changed. Finished with that, he had jogged lightly down the spiral staircase to see his Dad on his phone.

"Heading out, probably won't be back until later," he said over his shoulder with a wave and headed out. Not in the mood to have another one of their cars out and about in LA, Chad went instead to his bike collection and chose his 2014 Honda. Most people, it seemed, liked to believe that his bike collection consisted mainly of those one needled to pedal, which baffled him. Chad was, simply put, a fan of bikes. All bikes. He even had a few dirt bikes. Strapping on his helmet, he revved the bike up and zoomed out of the garage, following the long road to the mansion's gates before speeding down the way to get the highway. He was a good ten minutes away from Isaiah's new place when he decided to send his text to Izzy. At a red light, GPS had shown him a shorter route and after a quick U-turn, Chad found himself on Izzy's street. Putting his phone back in his pocket, he slowly found his friend's new crib and parked nearby.

When he walked up, he already noticed one person there and smiled.

"Hey, Linnae. Did he answer yet?"

Honey raised her perfectly arched eyebrows as she heard the knock at the door. " Well somebody's here. " She opened the door and spotted a pretty blonde girl and a very attractive head of curls. She stepped outside and turned to Linnaea first and flashed her a smile. "Linn, took you long enough " She said with a grin. She gave the girl a quick hug, easily surrounding her in her signature spicy vanilla scent. She then turned to Chad and, after taking a deep breath and quickly reminding herself that she was Honey fucking Perez, gave him a grin. "Hey big daddy Chaddy", she said teasingly. She let out a rare genuine smile that made her eyes squint but quickly regained control of it. She glanced down at her chest and bit her dark red lips " It didn't seem like a good idea to combine a yellow top and yellow skin"She explained even though she really didn't have to.

Honey Perez wasn't cute. She was one of the youngest sex icons in years. People were calling her the new Bridgette Bardot. Get it together, she chastised herself. She walked ahead while biting down a smile, before turning around "We need to get some stuff out the trunk " She explained over her shoulder. She approached his trunk and stood on her tiptoes to lift it up. This caused her back to arch and her blonde hair to tumble down her back. Rather than pull out the hatch she leaned in regrettably giving her peers a pretty enviable view of the butt she spent weeks toning. She couldn't hold back the blush that spread through her dark skin. She held two bottles of Vodka close to her chest and briskly walked back to the house. She set the bottles on the counter before pulling out her phone.

To: Shay
Chad looks good in yellow. Warn a girl next time jeez


She then walked back to the door so she could hold it open as they brought things in. That and so she could watch Chad's cute little touche bring stuff in.

Naea grinned as she heard a familiar voice behind her, as she waited for the door to open. She hadn't really noticed the roar of the motor bike, as she was preoccupied with checking her phone. Her sister had apparently raided the pantry for chocolate... Again. She smiled to herself and turned to greet Chad.

"Hey, Linnae. Did he answer yet?"

The girl shook her blonde curls, grinning at the floor. "Do you think I'd be waiting out here if he was?" She asked, a cheeky smirk on her lips. Suddenly, the door opened, and Linn grinned. Honey had answered the door, and the light blonde girl with tan skin had smiled at her, before enveloping her in a hug. She smelled like... Well, Honey smelled like honey, and it was very light and pleasant. She grinned, before replying with; "I'm surprised you aren't cringing away from me, I fell asleep with Ace and slept in late." She pulled a guilty face and bit her lip. "Oh well. Fresh and clean as can be now." She shrugged nonchalantly, grinning to say she was kidding around a bit. The attractive young blonde then released her and turned to Chad, who it was pretty obvious was the apple of her eye at that moment. She shot Chad a look and raised her eyebrows slightly, before smiling again and heading to Catalina's car, to help out.

She had to admit - Naea was surprised that only four people had shown up yet. Fiddling with the hem of her white and pink top, she made her way to the car, and soon found Izzy. "Hey, Izz." She greeted him with a small hand gesture. "What is it I need to grab?" He was attractive, as Isaiah had always been. However, Izz was off the charts for Naea, and she knew that, so she treated him with friendship only. "It must be earlier than I thought... There aren't many people here yet, huh?" She was trying to make small talk with him, trying to start a conversation. It was a lot more difficult than she imagined - she was out of practise with her whole bubbly side.

Florian woke slowly, to the smell of vomit in the bathroom, and the moans of his hungover mother from the bedroom next door. The boy shook his hair from out of his eyes, wondering if he could even be bothered to get out of bed that day, much like he did every day. Did he really want to take care of his mother? No. Of course not. Who would ever want to do a job like that? He sighed to himself and checked his phone. He didn't even look at the time, just the weather. Sunny again. Perfect. He could go out and ride his skateboard and go to that stupid party -

Shit. The party.

Florian had forgotten all about that - and he definitely did not have any clothes of red or green, and DEFINITELY not yellow. He mentally facepalmed - he did not have the money to buy a whole new outfit, and any money he had gotten over the holidays had been spent on skateboard repairs, (he'd splintered the board twice - it had cost a lot of his allowance to get it fixed both times) food, bills, and X Box games. Any clothes he had bought were dark blue or black. He was totally unprepared and the party started soon. He cringed and rolled out of bed, not even bothering to unwrap himself from his duvet. He ended up on the floor with a thump, before he eased himself out of the duvet carefully, nursing any new bruises to appear from yesterday's skating antics.

Florian made himself get up and walk into the living room. He could smell the reek of stomach acid coming from the bathroom, and his mother's room adjacent. He swallowed back the bile that always rose in the back of his throat when he thought of her, held his breath, and poked his head into his mother's room. She was sprawled on the bed, passed out, completely hung over and most likely still slightly drunk from last night's episode. She'd puked all down the side of her bed and onto the floor, and the rancid smell of bleach was coming from the toilet where she'd tried to clean it herself. He cringed and backed out of there. She could deal with it when she woke up. She was old enough to.

Rubbing his forehead with his index finger and thumb, Flo returned to his room. He changed from his pajamas into a Guns and Roses tee and some ripped jeans along with his converse, and to top it off, his cross necklace. He tiptoed out of his room again, slipping his phone into his pocket, his black jacket tied around his shoulders. He grabbed his skateboard and slammed the door. He didn't plan on coming back here today, at least, he would once it was passed midnight. His mother would probably be out cold again by then.

Florian didn't think about where he was going, he just hopped on his skateboard, earphones in his ears blasting music away so he couldn't think or hear, and somehow, he managed to make it safely into the city centre relatively quickly. He wanted to let himself go a little bit today, and it didn't matter if it was right then, or later, or whenever. Just as long as it would drown out today and he could get back to school as fast as possible.

He barely had time to stop as he saw a girl checking her phone. He managed to swerve to avoid her, slipping off his skateboard and sending it scooting backwards from him as he stumbled over his own feet, but relatively proud of himself for avoiding her. He recognized her now, too, it was Angelina. He grinned and saluted her Florian style, with a sarcastic grin and a tilt of his head to the side, before he flicked his hair out of his eyes. He retrieved his board and decided to go up to her. Why not? She was in the same sort of position as he was in.

"Hey, Angel. What's up?" He greeted her casually. He didn't really have an opinion on her type - he believed they all had a story, just like he did. People don't change on a whim. "You have an outfit yet?" He asked, pulling out an earphone. He hoped she didn't. He needed a hand picking something bright coloured. It just never seemed to suit him, no matter what people nagged. He was thinking about a dark green t-shirt, but had no idea, if he was honest. He just hoped Angel could give him a hand. Or at least, if not helping with an outfit, helping distract him until the party started.

Chad chuckled lightly at Linnaea's respond, rubbing the back of his neck idly as they waited for the door to open. Which didn't necessarily take long when he thought of it, but still. It was hard to not acknowledge the fact that Linn was very much still as pretty as ever. The smile on his face made his dimples more pronounced as he replied, "Very true, Linn." Not long after that, the door swung open...only for it not to be Isaiah, but Honey.

Maybe it was the way she spoke and looked at him or, simply put, what she said, but Chadwick's cheeks were immediately aflame when Honey actually acknowledged him. He had to clear his throat for a minute, a nervous small laugh on his lips as he rubbed the back of his beck again. "Nice to see you too," he told the tanned blonde, and no, his voice did not in any way falter. Shaking his head slightly and not in any way catching Honey's own rambling, he added, "And you're looking gorgeous, like always. The summer's treated you nice." He added a small smile at the end and readjusted the duffel bag on his back when Catalina told them of the stuff in Isaiah's trunk.

Chadwick, yes, got flustered easily, especially when flirted with. And let's be completely honest, it was Catalina Perez. She was sex appeal and sassiness and a whole lot of attitude wrapped in one very gorgeous package and well, Chad was a guy. Sure, he could seem unaffected by people's flirting or commentary or just his normally dopey self that went along with life's punches. But he wasn't immune to life and well, again gorgeousness was very much something he couldn't ignore. He didn't know what he felt for Honey, romantically speaking, but they were friends. And like his interactions with Linnaea, he was very much still a gentleman. So, while yes, there was something more sensual about Honey today (or maybe he just didn't pay attention often enough), he was very much more comfortable with contending to the obligations of their friendship.

"Sure thing, I'll get these two boxes," he told Honey and stacked one box on top of the other before picking them both up. They were filled with bottles of alcohol. The lean muscles, which weren't as bulky as some of his fellow athletes, flexed a little when he did the lift, which wasn't as hard as some would think. Finding his balance easily, he followed Honey back into the home, nodding to Isaiah and a talking Linnaea when he saw them. "Hey, Izz. Where do you want these at?"

Jasmine stood waiting on line at the Wetzel's Pretzels. She had left Alessandra and Aaliyah when they had come up to the seventh level. The top A-Listers wanted to go check out the Dolce & Gabbana store and Jasmine's stomach had begun to grumble in spite of the IHOP breakfast she had had just a mere few hours go. So the group split up with the A-Listers going one way and the Virtuosi the other. As she made it to the front of the line she ordered what she wanted, "Can I get one order of Wetzel Bitz topped with salt and butter. Also let me get a small frozen blue raspberry granita." The woman stationed behind the counter nodded before walking away to fulfill the order. As she waited Jasmine gazed around the mall watching all the shoppers walking about. When she saw someone who looked like Shailene she stood on her tippy-toes trying to get a better look. "Here you go miss. That will be -" Jasmine slipped the woman a twenty, "Keep the change."

She had saw the girl who looked like Shailene head into the Beach Bunny Swimwear store so she went inside the store to see if she had seen right. Just as her eyes had suggested it was Shailene. She appeared to be on the phone when Jasmine walked over to her. "Hey there Shay! It took you long enough." Jasmine spoke with a smile as she sipped her frozen drink. "I should let Allie know I found you." she said setting her items down on top of the rack carefully not wanting anything to fall or slip. She sent a quick text to Alessandra before putting her phone back in her pocket. "I see you've started shopping without us." she said as he eyes landed on the Solistice bag as she retrieved her pretzels and drink.

"So what are we thinking about this one?" Alessandra said stepping out of the dressing room in a red wisteria-print ruffle dress. "Depends are we shopping for you or my seventy plus year old mother. Not that my mother would be caught dead in that." A small frown creeped across Alessandra face that she tried to hide by turning away from Aaliyah and looking at herself in the mirror. "Why are you trying on red anyway? Your single. Plus your hot. Which means you should be wearing green if I'm understanding the rules of this traffic light party right." Aaliyah said as she walked up behind Alessandra so that they were both looking at her figure in the mirror. "Says the single hot girl going in red." Aaliyah nodded as what her bestie stated was true, "That maybe so but last time I checked it wasn't my ex hosting the party." Aaliyah said as she placed her hands on Alessandra's shoulder and moved her from the mirror gently pushing her back into the dressing room. "You need to move on Allie, and what better place to find your new man then at the party of your old one.", she closed the dressing room door, "Your wearing green. Now hurry up and get out of that hideous dress so we can go hit up another store."

Alessandra complied with wishes of her the queen bee as she striped out of the dressed and but her outfit back on. Walking out of the dressing room she found Aaliyah waiting for her outside the store. "So Dolce & Gabbana was a fail. Where do you wanna go now?" she said hooking Aaliyah's arm the two girls started walking. "Not sure. Text your sister to see where she is. When can meet up and head to the next store together." Alessandra nodded as unlinking herself for Aaliyah she began rummage around in her bag. On the way to the mall Alessandra had texted Aaliyah in the car and asked her if she wanted to meet up for a pre-party shopping spree. Although Aaliyah had already had her outfit picked out she wasn't one to ever turn down shopping so she threw on a casual outfit and met up with the sisters at the mall. They had started out all shopping together but then Jasmine got peckish and left them to go to the Wetzel's Pretzels.

Fishing her phone out of her bag she saw that she had three unread text messages. The first being from Linnaea who wanted to know what color she was wearing. The second being from Shailene asking where she was and the last being from Jasmine who wrote her telling her she ran into Shailene at Beach Bunny Swimwear and to come meet up with them. "Jas is with Shay at the Beach Bunny Swimwear store." she said as she texted Linnaea.

To: Lanie
Green. How bout u?


"Good so that means that they should be right over there." Aaliyah said pointing to the swimwear store. Dolce & Gabbana were on the exact same level and not but a few hundred feet apart. Walking the distance that remained the two girls found themselves inside the store within a minute or two. "That must have been the longest line in the world." Alessandra said when she spotted her sister and friend. "I was on my way coming back when I thought I saw Shay. So, I stalked her into the store and lo and behold." Alessandra rolled her eyes as she stole one of Jasmine's pretzels popping it into her mouth. "What took you so long anyway?" she asked looking at Shailene.

As he and Catalina walked there way to the front door Isaiah could hear a small knock. As they got closer he could see Linnaea and Chadwick through the glass. Catalina walking ahead of him got to the door first and opened it. Taking his phone out of his pocket he looked at the time and it was 12:46 PM. He was surprised that so many people were showing up so early but as long as he could put them to work he didn't care. "Took you long enough.", he said echoing Catalina's words to Linnaea as he addressed Chadwick. "I had a feeling you'd be rocking the yellow. Did Shay pick that out for you?" Isaiah asked with a sly smirk. Isaiah liked to mess with Chadwick about his relationship with Shay and how they both said they weren't a couple while in truth they were a total couple. Isaiah was still dressed in his Hollywood High football t-shirt and shorts that he had gone to the store in. He still need to change his clothes but he hadn't found the time to do so just yet.

As Catalina started flirting with Chadwick a cheeky grin appeared on Isaiah's face as it was always amusing when girls flirted with Chad. He got so flustered and just awkward it was funny to watch. "We need to get some stuff out the trunk.", Catalina said reminding him why he had come outside in the first place. "Almost forgot." He said walking to the trunk of his car, "There's stuff in both the trunk and the backseat so let's try not to forget anything." Catalina went and opened the trunk and Isaiah opened the side door. "Hey, Izz." Linnea spoke to him and he realized that he hadn't said hello to her yet. "Hey there you. I guess the theme of the day went over your head too.", he said as he noticed she was messing with her top. Stacking three cases of tequila on top of each other he heard her ask, "What is it I need to grab?" Grabbing the boxes he dragged them out the leather seats and held them taking a step back from the car, "Hey, Izz. Where do you want these at?". Just follow Honey and sit them down where ever.", he spoke in a response to Chadwick before looking back at Linnaea. "It must be earlier than I thought... There aren't many people here yet, huh?" Isaiah nodded, "Yeah well the party doesn't start till four and it's just going on one now. So, yeah you guys are earlier. The DJ and bartender haven't even arrived yet. No worries though at least I don't have to go through this manual labor alone. Speaking of which just grab whatever you can carry and set it down anywhere in the house. I'll sort through it after we get everything inside." He gave her a smile before walking away into the house.

As Shailene continued to browse through the selection of bathing suits and bikinis while sipping her cool hibiscus tea, she had glanced back at her phone to see another text from Chad. He was with Linnaea, Cat, and Isaiah. Which was good. It meant he was in good company, which would definitely pass the time. And knowing Izzy, he'd put to Chad to work without fail. Smirking, she had tucked her phone away when she heard her name being called and smiled when she saw Jas. Her eyebrows rose for a moment when Jas told her that she would be informing Allie of Shailene's presence.

"I thought I text her, oh well, let them know," she said softly, eyeing a cute little red number before remembering that she was going to wear green or yellow. These were the decisions she had made. She positively tittered under Jas's gaze when the newly-dyed blonde noted her Solistice bag. Grinning, Shay clutched the bag to herself. "Before you judge me, remember that I am your friend and you love me and as my friend, you know I love shades. And they were on sale, love! How could I resist?" Knowing that Allie would be on her way soon, Shay drank some more of her tea, still wondering about the cute little green number that she could definitely see herself wearing under one of her many kimonos.

When Allie and Aaliyah - what was this? Attack of the As? - arrived, she smiled at her friends, looking up from the wide selection to greet them. "Hey, loves! I took Chad's dad's car and dropped Chad back at the house. He's helping Izzy." She answered first before deciding to grab a hold of the bikini. "Richard and mom are still on vacation, so I've been staying with him. What do you guys think?" She inquired, holding up the top and bottom.

Still holding the boxes, Chadwick adjusted his weight somewhat and laughed at Isaiah's commentary about his wardrobe. He offered a "What do you think?" over his shoulder. He set the boxes down before deciding to set down his duffel bag. It would be in the way anyway. Besides, it made things feel a little heavier. Chad straightened himself before glancing back at his friend.

He didn't feel particularly embarrassed about his relationship with Shailene, despite the relentless teasing from their friends. Their dynamic had been confusing from the beginning. They were close, much like a real couple, but he had always only thought of Shay as his sister. Maybe once did he entertain the prospects of a relationship with Shailene; she was beautiful, intelligent, and had enough sass and kindness in her that kept her appealing. She could be flirty one day and well, sweet and almost childish another, but that was just who she was. And it was appealing, yes, and any guy that settled for his best friend would be the luckiest person in the world because her loyalty and love was insurmountable. But that was all she was - his best friend. And as long as he was aware of that and she was aware of that, anyone else could say whatever they wanted. It didn't change anything. Besides, it kept guys like Ricardo Slim- Helú away from her, at least as far as he was concerned.

"And sorry about that. Shay has Dad's car, so I took one of the bikes. Just came back from breakfast." With that said, he headed back to the truck to grab a few more boxes.

Linnaea had to hold back a laugh as Iz commented on her outfit. Her cheeks went light pink, as she hoped she hadn't made it too obvious of what her intentions - or rather, what she didn't intend to do - were. "Actually, Iz, I'm wearing red underneath. I don't really plan on hooking up tonight. It's not exactly my thing." She shrugged again, leaning past him to drag a box of what smelled like alcohol off the car seat. She didn't mind drinking, but she made a mental note to not drink so much she'd let herself go in any situation. She wanted to keep herself to herself.

She eased the box out of the car, ignoring Honey as she eased it out and giving the boys a view they were sure not to forget for at least a little while. She cringed inwardly - she could never have that sort of confidence - before putting on a smile and taking the bottles of liquid inside, clinking with every step.

She set the box down inside, somewhere near to the bar, before checking her phone. Allie had messaged her again, and Naea grinned to herself. She hurriedly texted back.

TO: Allie <3
Red, red, RED! You think I'd wear anything else? xD


Chad entered soon after, saying about how he took the bike. Naea smiled to herself, before slipping her phone back into her pocket, unable to stop herself from thinking about the good looking guy in yellow. He was pretty hot. She shook her hair again, before walking out again, running her fingers through the lengths of her curls. She walked back out, to retrieve more boxes for the party. The hot sun beat down on her back as she walked back outside, and she was eventually forced to take off her cardigan, resigning to throwing it into her car and damn the consequences. She wasn't sure she was comfortable with showing off her shoulders and the strap of her red bikini top, even though it sparkled subtly in the midday sun. She couldn't help but think herself lucky that pink was close enough to red. The colour, along with green and yellow, was way too bright for Naea's taste, as she prefered creams and pastel colours, if anything, and darker colours in the winter time. She would have been way more comfortable in blue.

She wrinkled her nose at the thought of herself in a blue bikini, and only that, before she reached in to grab another box. More alcohol, of course. Naea huffed a sigh of amusement as she wondered how on earth Isaiah had managed to get rid of all of the alcohol he must have had in his bar to need so much more now. She hadn't factored in how many people would be there, of course, but still, how many of these people would actually be drinking? And exactly how much were they all going to drink? She shook her head once more, carrying the box back inside, the sandals on her feet making a slapping sound against her foot and the ground as she moved. One thing she knew for sure was the party was going to be great - even if she didn't drink or do anything that others did at parties, it was going to be one hell of a good time.

"What do you think?" Chadwick called over his shoulder as the two boys walked into the house with boxes in hand. "I think you should be wearing green and having regrettable one-night stands, but your kind of sort of not girlfriend is being a cock block by picking out a yellow outfit for you to wear. Which means she has already broken rule number three of the night." He said picking up the poster that Jasmine had made earlier. Walking to the kitchen with the poster in hand he began looking through the drawers for a roll of tape. "And sorry about that. Shay has Dad's car, so I took one of the bikes. Just came back from breakfast." Finding the tape in the third drawer he opened he gave a shrug in response to what Chad said. "It's cool. A man's gotta eat, right?" As Chadwick and Linnaea went back outside to retrieve more boxes Isaiah put up on the wall behind the bar where it would be high enough to be seen. He had thought about putting up on the front door but he wasn't about to the stain the glass.

With the poster up he put the tape back where he had gotten it from and then went back outside. Walking to his car he returned to the side of the car and started stacking boxes when he noticed his phone lit up. He grabbed his phone out of the cup holder and saw that he had three notifications. He had gotten a text from Andrew, a guy on the football team who said him and a couple of guys would be there in ten with the kegs. Both the DJ and the bartender had sent separate texts saying that they would be there shortly to start setting up their stations. With more people on the way he figured it was time for him to go throw on something green before he sent the wrong message to the ladies about where he stood on the DTF spectrum. Placing his phone on top of three boxes of variety mixed snacks he headed back into the house. Placing the boxes down in the kitchen he grabbed his phone and went to his room to change his clothes.

"Hey, loves! I took Chad's dad's car and dropped Chad back at the house. He's helping Izzy." Alessandra made a face that both Jasmine and Aaliyah picked up on as she pretended to look through the swimsuits as Shailene went one, "Richard and mom are still on vacation, so I've been staying with him. What do you guys think?" Alessandra looked up from the rack of the swimwear and her eyes fell on the bikini that Shailene held. "Green? What kind of trouble are you looking to get into tonight?" Alessandra asked with a devilish grin. Jasmine chuckled at her sister as she viewed the bikini, "I like it. Aaliyah what do you-" Aaliyah shook her head, "Looks dull. And that's an ugly shade of green." She said answering Jasmine question before she even finished asking it.

Aaliyah didn't say anything after that as she walked away from the group. Alessandra just shrugged shaking her head, "I didn't think it looked bad but-" Aaliyah returned and cut Alessandra's sentence short as she said, "Now this is cute." She had a pink and green bikini in hand, "Don't you guys think?" The step-sisters nodded in unison "That is really pretty. I mean its mostly pink but it still has the green in it, so it works." Alessandra nodded at her sister's words as she looked at Shaliene, "What do you think Shay? You like?" Aaliyah smiled at the positive reviews she got from the girls, "If you'd like you can swap out the top for this one.", she said holding up the second bikini top in her other hand.

Honey rolled her dark eyes when Naea said hooking up wasn't her thing. She wasn't sure why that comment bothered her but for whatever reason it did. She pouted as she drummed her fingers along the counter. " Now I'm bored, when is A getting here? ". Aaliyah was definitely Honey's best friend. When it came down to it: Honey always had Aaliyah's back because she knew she always had hers. Even though Aliyah was Queen Bee she never worried about Honey because Honey didn't care about any of that. Alot of girls say they're best friends but stab each other in the back like it's nothing, but not Aaliyah and Honey. She pulled out her phone and opened a new message.

To: Aliyah
Bitchlette come save me, I'm drowning in boredom.


She grinned at the text as it sent. Honey developed a talent for creatively distorting words and Bitch was her favorite word to distort. Bitcher, your Bitchness, Bitchtude, Bitchachose, and that's just a few examples. She slipped her phone into her back pocket. She walked over to where they set all the drinks down and started organizing them. She saw Chadwick come back in the house and met him at the door. " So big daddy Chaddy, did you miss me over the summer. " She said with a grin. She pulled a rubber band off her wrist and pulled her hair, minus her long bangs, into a ponytail. Her long bangs annoyed her since they grazed her shoulder and were just as thick as the rest of her hair but she refused to pin them back. She brushed them out of her face a bit as she walked over to the bar. She propped herself up and promptly sat on the edge of the bar. She tilted her head to the side as she awaited his answer.

To: Ricky
Planning to rear your ugly head at the party tonight your highness?


Honey had to admit she was curious if Ricky would show tonight. She really hadn't contacted anybody but Aaliyah all summer. Honey had a habit of going off the radar. Those who knew her were used to her antics and had grown to accept her but she knew it frustrated them when she just dipped off. The only person who knew where Honey was anytime any day was Aliyah and those were special privileges reserved for her. Then again she had no real reason to contact Ricky. All he would do is get in her pants.

Shailene couldn't have gotten out of that mall fast enough. While she could handle Alessandra on a regular basis, if there was one person that tried her patience to the highest degree, it was Aaliyah Lapierre. It wasn't all bad with the blonde queen bee. In fact, Aaliyah had the capacity to be a very good friend. Yes, she could be extra, but so could Honey and Alessandra. And Shailene loved the both of them! However, if there was on person that truly made her upset and was too much for Shailene to handle without wanting to wring their necks, it was Aaliyah. After buying the swimwear her friend/person she envisioned strangling too many times in one week, Shailene headed home to get ready for the party. Which, to be completely honest, she was running a little late for.

After seeing that her things put away and indulging in a small serving of frozen yogurt provided by one of her favorite chefs, Christine, Shailene fled to her room and hopped into the shower. Afterwards, she slicked on her favorite jasmine scented body lotion, with the sunblock properties, and slid on the bikini. She didn't immediately put on clothes and had settled for traipsing around her living quarters in nothing but swimwear. As she applied a carefully minimal amount of eyeliner around her almond-shaped eyes, she wondered about the party Isaiah was throwing. While she was looking forward to it, she also didn't know how she would feel. Being green meant being available and being available meant being susceptible to constant flirting and well, Shailene was not discriminatory when it came to those who showed her interest. As bad as it sounded, she liked the flirty attention. She wasn't a slut, like some people she knew and hadn't seen in a few weeks, but she damn sure wasn't going to pretend that she was opposed to attention, even if it wasn't just from those in their clique. Satisfied with the minamlistic make-up she was wearing (subtle shimmery gold eyeshadow, a light layer of eyeliner, a hint of mascara on her already long lashes, and a faint gloss that brought out the pink of her already plump lips), she put her items away and walked back into her room only to gasp sharply.

"What the bloody hell, Ric?" She hissed after catching her breath, a hand over her heart to calm the organ in the midst of its frantic beating. The male in question looked up from his phone with a very sly smirk on his face; he had just sent his text to Honey and shoved the phone back into his pocket.

To: Honey
Why? Miss me already?

After messing around with Shay's tolerance level and joking around with Chadwick back in Monte Carlo, he had seen his friends off and did a few photo shoots. He didn't have his typical fun while he was there; the last lay he had had was Shailene and well, that only occurred when Chad went off to the gym for that hour and a half. Chuckling about the memory, his attention returned to the brunette. Brown eyes laced with molten honey raked over her svelte form, following the smooth lines of her very gracious curves. Shailene coughed to get his attention back to her eyes.

"Now that you're done leering," she began and stepped further into her bedroom, disliking her friend more and more for the absolutely disgustingly charming smile on his face. "How the hell did you get into my house?" Ric shrugged and lay back, settling himself against the neatly yet haphazardly lined pillows at her headboard. Glowering, Shailene stepped over and snatched her favorite feathery one from beneath him.

"Seems to be an extra sparkle in your bitchiness today, love," he commented lazily, arms folded over his chest. He laughed at her small answering growl. "Charlie let me and he texted you, but you had been in the shower. So, like a gentleman, I waited until I knew you were somewhat decent." Ricardo surprisingly had waited. Any other day, he might have decided to simply wait in her room while she was still in the shower. However, he had seen that Michael had just returned from his own summer vacation and the two began to catch up. Afterwards, they both were headed to the same wing, where both Shay and Michael stayed. Ric had, in his own defense, knocked on the door twice, but in her rummaging through her bathroom, Shay obviously had not heard him so he had let himself in. Not his fault that she wasn't paying attention.

Shailene didn't say anything at first. Instead of offering some sardonic comment to his teasing about her being inattentive or distracted, she observed his outfit, complete with his Versace medallion and watch. It didn't come to her surprise Ric opted to wear green...well, it was green and the other two colors, but green was the focal point of his outfit. What surprised her, however, was the fact that she was not jealous. In fact, she found that she could care less. It was no secret that Shailene could be a jealous individual when it came to people infringing on her territory. It was one of those things that she and Ricardo could actually agree on. And yes, they had been sleeping together, which occurred after he and Aaliyah had broken up. She hadn't been close or even know when Aaliyah well enough when that occurred, so while some might would see that - if they ever found out in the first place - as an infringement against the girl code, she couldn't. Not when the two had barely gotten along at the time and didn't claim each other as friends until some time later. All it proved was that this was definitely not an emotional connection, but a sexual one. Nothing more than that and it wasn't as intense or consuming as she originally thought it was.

"Shouldn't you be with the other jocks or waking up in some model's bed?"

"I'm in yours, aren't I?" Shailene laughed lightly.

"Shut up and let me get dressed, you little shit," she replied. She hurried up and yanked on some lime green skinny jeans along with another pair of Jimmy Choo wedge sandals. Afterwards, she pulled on a simple white top that tied up and revealed her very much yummy flat tummy. Deciding to gather her hair back in a care-free yet elegant mesh at the back of her head so that tendrils still framed her face, Shailene pulled on her Guess watch and bracelet set. She had just been in the middle of jabbing some gold hoops with encrusted pink diamonds in her ears when she heard Ric laugh again.

"Boy Wonder says we are late and better hurry up. Apparently, he's been with Honey this whole time," he said and Shailene laughed.

"Fine, fine. I'm ready." She gave herself one final spritz of her favorite jasmine-scented body spray. Satisfied, Shailene grabbed the car keys from her dresser along with her Mar Jacob sunglasses, and then motioned for Ric. He followed obediently. Situated in their own vehicles, she in Chad's and he in his own, they both headed off to the party with Ric following Shailene. Meanwhile they had both sent their own texts; Ric sent one to both Isaiah and Chadwick about being on his way and taking his thanks from Izzy since he had invited a few models to the party as a housewarming gift. Shailene sent her own to the girls to see if they were on their way as well.



Chadwick was still reeling from the time he spent helping Isaiah, Linnaea, and Honey set up and get organized for the party. While he was used to Honey's antics, her albeit flirty antics, the flush of heat that surged beneath his flesh every time they were alone or in close quarters really set him ill at ease. On one hand, it was flattering having Honey's attentions on him. She was absolutely gorgeous and too many guys at their school had a thing for her. On the other, Chad just wasn't sure if he wanted to pursue anything with her yet. And when the hell did she start calling him 'Big Daddy Chaddy?'

"Of course I missed you, Cat. How could I not?" He had replied earlier, which must have been the right answer, because the way her eyes lit up had him smiling brightly in return.

Shaken from his thoughts by the sound of friends reuniting after probably not having seen each other for twenty-four hours, Chadwick nodded appreciatively at the bartender before accepting a Kamikaze (he partly loved it for the name, and partly because it was a really good drink), and decided to head over to where he saw Linnaea standing. People had been gathering and some were currently splashing about in the pool. Others didn't wait long. They were already flirting while Chad doubted too many could drunk that easily, some were even making out at the moment. Smirking, he tapped his friend on the shoulder.

"Wanna make a bet? How long do you think before the cops come?"

Linnaea couldn't help but laugh when Chad suggested a bet. "Sure, I'm game." She laughed, having to look down at her feet to avoid bursting into fits of giggles. "Give it five minutes after the Devil Girls and Ric show up, and all hell will break loose somewhere. So... Sometime soon." She shrugged. She hurried around the bar and got herself a Bacardi Breezer - she'd start with something 'light'. "Let's get this party started."

Soon enough, the lights were down and the beat of the music was beating in time with her heartbeat. Consumed by the alcohol in her bloodstream, Naea decided it was time to seek out her friends, with Chad. The crowds had gathered, and as everyone had predicted, Isaiah's end party was a huge hit. It always was. As she stood on her tiptoes to try and find somebody familiar, she pulled up the strap to cover the spaghetti strap of her red bikini. She knew she'd have to show it somehow to let people know she wasn't open to that, but for now she'd pretend she hadn't noticed it wasn't on show. She swallowed the anxious lump in her throat and soon spotted the gorgeous heads of hair that were Aaliyah, Jasmine and Isaiah. She grinned and turned to Chad quickly.

"Iz sure knows how to throw a party." She smiled at them him, before adding, "Do you want to see if we can find someone, or just stick together?" She cringed inwardly, but disguised it with a sheepish looking smile. Naea finally noticed the new girl that Jasmine had introduced the group to, and watched from a distance. The group soon split up, and Jasmine and the other girl headed to the dance floor while Aaliyah headed off in a different direction. She soon lost Isaiah in the crowd. She sipped at her Breezer once again, shaking her head. "I forgot how awesome parties are." She laughed out loud in her own awkwardness - her social anxiety was showing, making the situation even worse for herself. She calmed herself down by reminding herself that she was only talking to Chad, sighing heavily before sipping again at the drink.

Florian had left the mall before Angelina, adorned in a green swimming trunk and a black tank top. Skateboard tucked underneath his arm, he had headed to the party, aiming to get pretty drunk and hit on a lot of girls. Who cared about the consequences? There were already thousands at home, not that he'd ever get them. His mother was drunk half the time anyway - who knows what sort of bad impressions it had left on the boy?

Florian laughed out loud when he pictured the conversation between him and the police, assuming he was caught. The guy knew all the back passages and alleyways around here. He just picked up his skateboard and headed inside, where the beat was vibrating through the floor even several metres away from the beatboxes. He soon headed inside and headed straight to the bar, where he spotted the bitch Sienna and a guy flirting with her. He rolled his eyes but headed over anyway.

"You guys wanna do shots?" He yelled over the bass of the music. The guy looked reasonable enough, but Sienna... He didn't know how she'd react. She did look pretty hot, though, even Flo could admit that. He quickly ordered three vodka shots, resolving to drink them himself if they didn't want them, before yelling, "Of course, if you wanna get down and dirty I'm up for that too." He downed his own shot hurriedly, before winking in a very sarcastic fashion of his own. He knew he was acting like a jerk, Florian always did, especially to bitches, Royal or not. And seeing as she threw his skateboard down the hall and almost snapped the thing, causing him to slave for hours over the thing to fix it, he'd try and annoy her, although not take it too far. He didn't want a physical fight today.

Apparently, the Erik guy with the thick accent found her absolutely hilarious, or maybe he was nervous. Sienna didn't know. She was used to making people nervous though. When he began to explain his reasoning for his move to California, Sienna took another sip of her drink and her gaze drifted idly. Instantly, they recognized a very familiar head of blonde hair moving in some random direction, and away from two familiar and more friendly faces. Jasmine and Janice. No doubt, that bitch better have went the other way, she thought saucily before returning her attention to the make beside her. Sienna had just tuned in more clearly, not that she hadn't heard him, when he pretty much complimented her and she smiled coyly.

However, just as Sienna was preparing to respond and get him away from the bar, Florian the Skater Dweeb managed to slither into the party and propped himself up on the bar, interrupting her before she could set her plan in motion. When he began talking, Sienna was more than grateful for the shield her hair provided so that her ever-appearing eye roll would not be seen by him, but by Erik. Instead of being as excited or interested like Erik, Sienna turned to the skater dude a very blank stare, one that involved her eyes scanning him from head to toe in her signature scathing way that had even the toughest of rebels and loners squirming just a bit.

"Sure, why not," she replied dryly, grabbed the drink and tossed it back like it was water. Similar to Erik's thoughts, unknowingly, Sienna couldn't help but compare this brand to those of European countries - vodka that actually took her breath away. Smirking, she set her glass back down and trained her gaze back on Florian in time for Erik's inquiry about who the guy with the very dark hair was. "Oh, he's just someone who wasn't exactly down for my kind of fun back in the day," she told Erik and her smirk grew into a dark grin for Florian. "And trust me when I tell you, you wouldn't be ready for my kind of dirty. Don't think that board of yours was either."

Sienna didn't necessarily have a problem with Florian other than his blatant rudeness and inability to see that he was fucking with the wrong one. So what if you hated anyone in a higher status than yourself! If Sienna had never laid a hand in you or even talked to you, why try to run her over in the hallway, which had originally been an accident she had realized, and not apologize? And then be mad when she retaliates, it's ridiculous. And stupid if anyone knew of her temper. Satisfies with the expression on the skater's face, Sienna quickly pulled her straw from her glass and quaffed it two large gulps. She stood tall then and turned her back to Florian. He was too irrelevant to continue having a conversation with.

"Well, this was fun but a girl's gotta move. Come dance with me?" She said it on a slow smile with a quick flash of teeth and her right hand extended towards the male discreetly. Either way, she was leaving. It was up to Erik if he was coming along.

Meanwhile, Chad had finally made his way inside with Linnaea. She had joked moments earlier that all it would take for the party to be a bust would be Ric showing up and The Devil Girls acting up, which he had to disagree with. Chad's money was on the guys that brought weed, whom he was sure Isaiah had invited to the party. When they arrived inside, Chad had seen a few of their friends but they all went their separate ways and Sienna looked to be on the prowl even in her red. What he also noticed, since he was closest to her, was the way his companion seemed somewhat uncomfortable. Was it him?

"Hey, are you ok?" Chad asked her, turning to face Linnaea fully. Before he could any answers, however, a pair of tiny arms wrapped themselves around him from behind. Chadwick heaved a long, slightly dramatized sigh, and turned his body so that Shailene was in view. She grinned up at him, dimples pronounced.

"I knew you'd find me eventually," she exclaimed happily before her gaze landed on his companion. Shay instantly brightened. "And you brought my Linn! How are you, love?" Shay might have been looser in her antics partly because she had just finished two rounds of shots with the other cheerleaders, but her happiness was genuine. She has forgotten how easy it was to lose her composure in the midst of her cheerleading friends. She wasn't drunk, but she wasn't not slightly tipsy.

And Ric, well, Ric couldn't resist a challenge. He never could. So when one of the dudes from the swim team decides that he wanted to race the King of Hollywood High to see if he could finally next the infamous athlete, who was Ric to deny the guy a chance at a dream he was never going to see come alive? He had stripped slowly and one of the Royal girl, a cute brunette he hadn't slept with yet, held his things for him at her seat. And, to the surprise of no one, Ric won.

After all, Ric only ever lost to one person at HHS and that person was his best friend. Emerging from the cool depths of his friend's pool, Ric swiped his dripping hair back, glittering droplets coating the broad golden expanse of skin that was his chest. He looked up in time to see the host himself wandering about.

"Yo, Izzy! Don't tell me you just missed me mop the floor with this dumbass! Where the hell have you been anyway?"

"Do I have hickey?" Alessandra asked trying to get a good view of the mark on her neck with the hand mirror in her right hand. "Yes. Yes, you do. And mama's very proud." Aaliyah said sitting down at the end of the lounge chair that Alessandra was sitting in. "I didn't fuck him you know." Alessandra spoke dryly as the mirror clamped shut in her hand. "Good! I didn't push on Christian in the hopes that you'd spread your legs open. I just wanted you to have a good time. And realize that there are more guys ... possibly better guys than Izzy in the world." Say what you will about Aaliyah Lapierre but regardless of the what the naysayers and rumors had to say she did give a damn about those who she cared for. Did she always go about things in the right way? Absolutely not. If she did she and Sienna would most likely still be tight to this day. However, in spite of her sometimes twisted way of going about things she always had her reasons and were Alessandra was considered her reasoning was justified. At least in her head it was. "After this year am gone Allie. Where to? I can't be certain just yet but I sure as hell won't be going back to Hollywood High. I just want to be sure that your going to be okay." It was rare for Aaliyah to truly open up and let down her guard, however, in this case she was opening up to Alessandra. And she trusted Alessandra. A lot more than most.

"Let's go back inside." Alessandra could tell that Aaliyah was being sincere in her words and coming from the Queen Bee herself meant more than Aaliyah would ever know. Neither girl was much for the mushy mushy stuff so when Alessandra changed the topic and asked to head back in, as much as Aaliyah didn't feel like seeing Sienna face yet again she decided to go back in anyway. "Let's do it." Getting to their feet the girls straightened out their dresses; Aaliyah had slipped hers back on after running back into Brianna while she was in search of Alessandra. When they walked back into the party house the royal girls eyes immediately fell on Jasmine who was giggling as she watched that friend of hers do some wack ass looking dance move. "Theres a reason I don't typically go to parties involving just anybodies." Alessandra chuckled as she looked around the place. As her eyes found Linnaea and Chadwick standing together in the midst of all the party folk she tapped Aaliyah's shoulder and then pointed to the two, "Come on." Aaliyah nodded as the two walked across the dance floor over to their two friends.

Outside, Isaiah was happy to finally run into one of his boys. "Yo, Izzy! Don't tell me you just missed me mop the floor with this dumbass! Where the hell have you been anyway?" "Sorry to say I did and if you hadn't noticed I've been busy hosting a party. A pretty epic party if you'd ask me." Isaiah couldn't help but stroke his own ego. Say whatever you'd like about him but the one thing no one could deny is that he always threw a killer ass party. That and when it came to sports the man was a god ... or in the very least god-like. "Am kind of surprised to see you out here. Figure Ricky Ric be up to something else in one of the spare bedrooms by this time of the night." It was probably around ten or eleven at this point, which meant school was just a few mere hours until the first day of school. Isaiah wasn't gonna think about that right now thought as he was very much still in party mode.

Back out on the dance floor Jasmine couldn't help but burst into a fit of giggles as Janice busted out her Mick Jagger Chicken move. "Okay see now this is why I love you! You just give zero fucks and I love that!" Jasmine screamed out over the music as she continued to dance around with Janice. "You got any other dance moves you wanna whip out before the Devil Girls come back out here and try to show you up?"

Shailene was still grinning and clinging to Chadwick, waiting for Linnaea to tell her a little more about her summer. Now that she was away from the haziness of the wild cheerleaders, a little sobriety was hitting her and she noticed the offness of her blonde friend. However, unlike Chad, she wouldn't question it, not here and not now. Shay waited for a more private setting and time, when they were alone together and without the company of people who didn't know Linn well enough to know when something was wrong. Just as she was about to steer the conversation in a new direction, she saw her best friend and Aaliyah.

"My bestest friend in the whole wide world!" She exclaimed with a bright smile and hurried to link arms with Alessandra, giggling a little and accidentally leaning against her a bit out of being tipsy. Chad shook his head idly and smirked at the newly arrived girls.

"The Devil Girls were doing shots," he explained and Shailene made a very indignant noise. A moment ago, she would have used Alessandra for the full brunt of her weight, which wasn't a bad thing considering how easy it was to genuinely lift her. "I only had thiiiiisss much." Shay said as an explanation, gesturing between the small space between her thumb and forefinger. Suddenly a memory hit her, and Shay smiled at Aaliyah. "Ooooh, Leah! You missed it! All the Devil Girls were dancing! Sia made a really really good dance routine. We should use it! And you two should talk. She's awesome!" Of course, at this point, despite the slight sobriety, Shailene was still tipsy and could not for the life of her remember why Aaliyah couldn't get along with Sienna. It was ridiculous, in her head, and Chad didn't bother to turn the convo away from the queen's former friend. Despite the amusement on his countenance for his friend's antics, he was slightly curious what Aaliyah's reaction would be.


Sienna grinned triumphantly when she felt Erik move closer to her and her hips continued their teasingly seductive dance, her own body trying to close in the space between their two bodies. And what a body he did have! It was solid and warm behind her, and she could feel it seeping through the very thin and see-through material of her slip-on. Rocking against Erik, Sienna chuckled at his words before responding, "If you're still thinking about any other girl, I'm obviously doing something wrong." She replied on a laugh, though some part of her made the moves more seductive, leaving very little - if there was any to begin with - space between their bodies. She wanted to be the only thing on his mind right now and possibly, for the rest of the night. With that thought in mind, Sienna whirled around to face Erik, a light sheen on her porcelain skin and her hands looped at the back of his neck.

"You know, for a guy who can't dance, you - " Before she could finish, Christian came over and grasped her shoulder in his large hand. Rolling her forest green eyes, Sienna turned to him a sharp glare. "What?" Christian gestured back to the glass doors that led to the pool. "It's a fight. It's Ric." Siena didn't need an explanation and she didn't stop to explain to Erik either. Her best friend needed her and before she knew it, someone else was yelling, "Fiiiiiiigggghhhttt!!!" Sienna and Christian shoved their way outside through the crowd just in time to see Jackson Teller tackle Ric into the pool.

"Ricky!" She screamed and tried to run over, but someone had a tight grip on her waist and had her practically hoisted up in the air to keep her from getting involved. A few athletes, Chadwick included, jumped in to break up the fight and she faintly heard police sirens from afar.

It didn't take long for Shai to show up. She grinned as the girl gave her a hug, and broke the awkward air that Naea could feel creeping up on her. She could smell the alcohol on her breath, but she didn't mind. Plus, it meant she didn't have to answer Chad's question. She decided to cover it up and smiled, before replying, "Yeah, I'm fine. I think the lights are making me look pale, though." She cringed, sighing heavily. She hoped he had bought it. She hugged the other girl quickly. She'd been with the cheerleaders, which reminded Linn that she hadn't actually seen them yet. She spotted them off in the distance, and guessed that they'd be there soon.

Linn predicted right, as soon enough she spotted Allie tapping Leah on the shoulder and heading over. Naea could see even from that far away that Allie had a mark on her neck. She hid a giggle behind her hand, making a mental note to ask who it was with later on. She then continued to tell her about the summer - the hours spent galloping through the fields with her sister, messing around in the pool, and, of course, the three week vacation to her summer house on the South coast of France.

The reunion of the group of friends was short lived, though, and as much as Linnaea enjoyed seeing all her friends, she didn't contribute to the conversation much. She just smiled and watched as people danced way too close in her opinion, and watched as random strangers slipped off for a bit of privacy. She silently thanked Fate that nothing had gone on there.

Shouts suddenly filled the room, and people started yelling. Perking up a little, Naea stood on tiptoes to see, before she heard a faint splash from outside. Cringing slightly, she threw Chad a look of 'I-bet-I-know-who-that-was' and raised her eyebrows slightly. She shook her blonde curls, sighing slightly, before following the crowd to see what the hell was going on.

Unfortunately for Chad, it looked like Naea was right. She didn't know if that qualified her to 'win the bet', strictly speaking, as it wasn't five minutes, but it was the person she'd predicted. She left it, though - Chad's best friend was getting in a fight, and the far away wail of sirens neared them with every second. Sighing, Naea followed Chad and soon found that the party was being broken up. 'Great.' She thought to herself. It wasn't her favourite plan, she was having fun, and hanging out with her friends. However, it was the first day of school the following day, so Naea was a little cautious of the time. She noticed Chad had slipped away, and she was a little disappointed by the sudden disappearance, as it meant that she couldn't say goodbye. Sighing slightly, she turned to her friends. "You guys are welcome to come to mine for the night - my sister will be asleep and we have guest rooms. " She suggested. She knew her father wouldn't care - he'd already be asleep at his desk in his office, and be gone by the time the girls got up. Alice's nanny, however... She shrugged again. She'd deal with it somehow.

Florian smirked as he watched Sienna's signature eye-scan thing happen. He couldn't care less, although he had to hide his discomfort by the stare. At least she accepted the shot. He lifted his own glass to his lips and tipped the glass up, downing it in one. The stuff wasn't very strong, he'd definitely had stronger in the past - and it was obvious the others thought so, too. He sighed through his nose and put the glass down rather roughly.

He couldn't help but cough out a laugh when Sienna came out with her explanation for him. He covered his mouth as he laughed. She'd been the one that had thrown his skateboard. That was unforgivable in his opinion. "I'm just convinced you don't have a sense of humor." He grinned at her, before she continued on with; ""And trust me when I tell you, you wouldn't be ready for my kind of dirty. Don't think that board of yours was either." He raised one eyebrow at her, shaking his hair out of his eyes, before directing to the new boy; "If I'm not ready for it, how's newbie gonna?" His lips curved into a crooked half-smirk as he watched them leave, missing exactly when Sienna invited him to dance. He shook his head again, before finally noticing the very attractive Charlie Waynor sitting beside him. His stomach did a little flip - he'd always thought Charlie was cute. However, he was much more pleasantly surprised when she ordered two shots and came over to him, placing the glass in front of him and downing her own. He did the same, tipping it back, once again noting that he'd had stronger, and nicer.

She ordered a second round, and Florian took up the challenge without speaking. He had no idea what to say - his mind had gone blank. His gut twisted in awkwardness - for some reason he always felt tongue-tied when she was around. She finally spoke, saying, "Everyone needs a drinking buddy." Flustered, he nodded, downing his third shot. "Thanks." He stuttered as he finished. "I mean, for the shots. And the company." He turned to her, leaning on the bar slightly. His heart flipped a little when he noticed she was wearing red. It made him feel relieved - it meant she wasn't looking for a random hook-up. Plus it meant she wasn't going to be hit on. He internally cringed when he remembered he was wearing green - he didn't want to give the wrong impression now.

Trying to hide his conflicting thoughts, Florian turned to watch the dancers. He spotted the foreigner and Sienna dancing way, way too close. He turned back around, and did a mime of gagging at them. He kind of felt sorry for the foreigner. Knowing those kinds of people, it wouldn't be too long before he got tossed aside like a broken thing. He'd seen it happen before. He turned back to Charlie, and finally decided on what to say. "What do you think of their..." he paused a second, before making the quotation sign and finishing off with "dancing?" He knew she probably thought he was an asshole, too, like most people did, but then again, most people didn't offer him shots or come and explicitly sit down with him. He appreciated it more than he realized.

The fun and games didn't last long, though. Florian sat up just a tad straighter as the first shouts of "FIGHT!" reached his ears. He raised his eyebrows, sighing a little. "C'mon, we'd better get outta here. Someone'll call the cops and then we'll be in trouble." He muttered. "Not that I care, just... Being arrested before the first day of school isn't on my top priorities." He shrugged once more. "If you want, you can come back to my place for a bit. I have an X Box and a few video games." He suggested, hoping she'd say yes. Then again, it was his Mom's apartment, and although she was probably passed out, the place would probably stink.

After a hasty text to her sleeping father, Linn headed to Allie and Jasmine's home with the rest of the girls. The Ambrosia estate was huge, and although Naea's own estate was quite large itself, Naea's breath was always taken away when she visited. Regardless, Naea knew that she was in for a sleepless night - the insomnia wasn't going to let up tonight, especially since she'd been up half the night. She walked inside with the other girls, and listened to the chatter that they kicked up. Naea, however, had a sudden, overwhelming urge to wash her hands, so much so that she rubbed the backs of her hands unconsciously. Her fingers clenched and unclenched as she did so. She excused herself, knowing the others would be settling down to go to sleep, so she tried to be as quiet as she could. She locked the door behind her, and turned on the tap faucets so that the water sprayed onto her hands, and she washed her hands until the water turned pink. Trying not to notice, Naea finished her routine hand washing, before opening the bathroom door and heading back to her allocated guest room.

Set out on the bed was an old, cotton t-shirt - much too big for Naea, but comfortable looking all the same. She slipped off her clothes, folding them neatly and placing them at the foot of the bed, before slipping into the t-shirt. It was extremely comfortable, she was right, but Naea had a feeling she wouldn't really be sleeping in it. Instead, she pulled out her phone and texted Chad, before deciding against it. She had a hunch that he wouldn't reply, plus he was with Honey. He didn't need any more distractions. Naea's heart sank as she thought that. Could he see Honey's rather obvious affections for him? Naea realized she was jealous, and sighed, before flopping back on the pillow. It was going to be a long night.

A few hours later, Naea could hear the slight noises of people waking up. She opened her eyes, surprised how tired she felt, but knew she wasn't going to be sleeping. She slid out of the bed and headed to Allie's room, where she knocked lightly on the door, before letting herself in. "Morning, you two." She smiled, knowing full well she looked like crap. "Umm, do you have any clothes I can borrow? I mean, I'm not sure I really want to go to school in my party clothes..." She sounded sheepish and exhausted, even to herself. She smiled again, trying to cover up the fact. She did need some clothes at least. She combed her fingers through her hair, trying to rid it of tangles. Everything she did was sluggish and slow - no thanks to the insomnia. She wished she had some time to set out an outfit and plan something to cover up the awful purple bruise-like shadows under her eyes, but she'd have to trust her best friends. That's what friends do, right?

Florian couldn't help but feel his stomach sink when she turned him down. But then again, he supposed it seemed a little strange to invite a girl on a whim to his home, especially when they'd been drinking and he was wearing green. He covered his disappointment by grinning and nodding his head, exiting with her.

"My ride’s around the corner, so I’ll see you tomorrow. By the way, nice shorts." Florian had to hide the pink in his cheeks with a quick, but cheeky grin. "That bandana is pretty cool too. Have a nice evening, I guess. I'll see you tomorrow!" His voice got gradually louder as he moved in the opposite direction from her, yelling the final sentence to her, before turning and getting on his skateboard, zooming along deserted streets in the middle of the night. It wasn't long before he was at his apartment complex, and was cringing at the sound of arguing coming from the couple down the hall. It was a sound he was all too familiar with. He sighed, unlocking his front door, knowing what he'd see when he walked in.

The room was a state, and his Mom was slouched over the arm of the sofa, completely pissed and passed out. He turned her on her side gently, before pulling a blanket over her sleeping body, and cleaning away the bottles of drink one by one. He put them in the trash, resolving that he'd clean the rest later in the day. Instead, he grabbed a glass and filled it with water, before chugging it, and walking into his room, flopping down on his bed, and falling asleep almost immediately.

Bzzt! Bzzt!

Florian's eyes opened slowly to his ceiling. Slowly sitting up, Florian shook his hair out of his eyes and looked at the time on his cell. Then he remembered what day it was. "OH SHIT!" He yelled, scrambling out of bed. "I'm gonna be late..." He moaned to himself. The soft snores of his mother could be heard emanating from the living room. He stripped of his party clothes from yesterday and instead putting on his outfit for school. It was much more his normal style - he'd burn the green items at a later date, unless someone wanted them. He packed his old, tatty black backpack full of his school books, homework, (which he'd actually done, to his own surprise as well as many other people's, probably) and stationery. Then he grabbed his skateboard, before heading out as quietly as possible. The drunken slurs from behind him reminded him he had failed. Hurriedly, he ran down the steps before his mother could yell at him. She wouldn't come too far after him.

Florian knew he was safe when he reached street level. Breathing a sigh of relief, Florian grabbed his phone and texted Ollie hurriedly.

TO: Ollie
Yo! Meet me @ skool, k?


He sent it and took his skateboard from under his arm, adjusting his backpack so it was secure, and setting off for school at a break-neck speed. Morning strollers almost had no warning as he zipped past them, and soon enough, Florian was at school, and prowling the lockers for his own. He soon found it and unlocked it, dumping his stuff in the locker. What was first again? Florian couldn't remember, or care. Maybe Ollie would know.

Shay had been going through her text messages a few moments before Linnaea had come into the room. She had even posted two selfies in the process of Alessandra styling Jasmine's hair. She had pouted a little when Sia text her about them going to IHOP, which sucks because if Shay hadn't shown those rich kids what an IHOP was, they would have all thought it was some random clothing line. That wasn't true but it helped lessen the blow of not being with her friends. Besides, she wouldn't have wanted to go if Allie and Jas count come, and that required Aaliyah's presence. And she wasn't exactly ready for WWIII that Sia and the Queen bee were bound to start...

The big thing, however, was when Honey text her about whatever that was going on between herself and Ricardo. Shailene paused then and refused to look up from her phone; she didn't want to even risk peeking at Aaliyah. So, she text Honey that they could talk before class before putting her phone away in the pocket of her comfy trousers.

"Linn!" She cringed at the excitement in her own voice before hopping up off the bed and embracing her friend. She's been too tipsy to actually interact with her other best girl friend like normal and she hadn't even realized Linn had stayed with them. She took in Linnaea's appearance before making the split decision. "Ooh, I might have something in my room, love. You guys go ahead to breakfast, we'll be down in a bit." Shay knew that Allie would be done with Jasmine's hair soon and her make up wouldn't take too long; Jasmine was naturally gorgeous, she wouldn't need much.

The duo headed to the room Shay stayed in and Shay immediately stepped to the drawers, a very concentrated look on her face as she went through the clothes. "Allie and I went on a shopping trip once and the skirt was too long, but I told myself I could wear really high heels and make it work. I have sandals under the bed." She explained while she searched and with the bit of jewelry she had left, she came up with an outfit.

Ricky held back a laugh at Honey's expression after hearing their order, which would definitely make Sienna's personal trainer and his coach cringe. However, the trio didn't eat out often and they were always prone to burn their calories off. More than likely, he and Sia would have a gym session after school if she wasn't volunteering. He blinked at Honey's question before grinning a little, playing with the whipped cream of his hot drink before answering. "What can I say? It's important for us to not look so pretentious, it keeps us relatable to fans." He didn't really mean it, he barely even cared about the fact that he had fans. Shay had told them about it and after a late movie night, they came and fell in love. It felt too intimate of a detail to share and Ric had an image he was trying to uphold.

Cradling the large cup smoothly, he lifted it and took an idle sip, just allowing the combined flavor of chocolate and espresso coat his tongue deliciously with the slight bite of warmth. Setting it back down, Ric slowly met Honey's eyes, allowing her inquiry to wash over him. He took in her features slowly and allowed his gaze to fall on her luscious lips for a bit longer, and felt positively elated when for a sit second, her facade faltered. A satisfied smirk flitted across his face. "I would say that I'm looking right at her, but that would sound too presumptuous," he replied in a slightly lower register. Ric say back comfortably, peering at his phone for a moment. "Let's just say that I'm testing the waters. Sia and Chad are in the parking lot, not sure if Izzy is with them or not." Ric didn't know what he was doing with Honey and it freaked him the fuck out that last night threw him off his game. His friends needed to get inside and soon.

"Yo, get up and come to IHOP. You know you want food and you can get whatever you want cuz Ricky's paying. Don't make me come get you, Izz." Isaiah groaned as he rubbed his template sitting on the edge of his bed. His head was pounding a bit and Sienna's loud voice was just making it worst. Did he really feel like getting up and driving all the way to IHOP? No, but what was he going to say. Everyone knew that Isaiah couldn't cook for shit and he was pretty much always hungry, and outside of that he really believed Sienna when she said she would come get him. "Alright. I'll be there ... when ever I get there I guess." he spoke with his groggy morning voice as he clicked the end button before she could say anything else. Getting up off his bed he went to wash his ass and get ready.

Back in Alessandra's bedroom, Shailene was perched on her bed and Aaliyah was taking photos in for the outfit of the day collage she was making to post on Instagram. Alessandra was in the midst of doing her sister's hair when a knock sounded on her door and Linnaea walked into the room. "Umm, do you have any clothes I can borrow? I mean, I'm not sure I really want to go to school in my party clothes..." Alessandra jumped a bit when Shailene squealed with excitement in her voice, "Linn!" Alessandra was about to tell Linnaea that she could help herself to her closet when he attention was turned to Aaliyah, "We've been invited to breakfast at IHOP." The way she had said it had Alessandra raising a brow with an inquiring look on her face as the look on Aaliyah's face had her puzzled. The Queen Bee looked to be in thought, like the wheels were turning in her head. "Ooh, I might have something in my room, love. You guys go ahead to breakfast, we'll be down in a bit." Alessandra head turned to look back at Shailene who was leading Linnaea out the door.

"We're not going." Aaliyah said when the door had closed behind the two girls. "What?" "Why not?" the two girls asked at the same time both wondering why it was Aaliyah wouldn't want to go to IHOP. "Am just not in the mood for IHOP." Aaliyah said dryly as her eyes were fixated on her phone. When her eyes drifted up she could see both girls looking at her with looks that read of curiosity and suspicion. "Your kitchen staff already has a gourmet five-star breakfast waiting for us downstairs. What can I say? I want to eat a home-cooked meal actually cooked in a home." Alessandra wasn't buying it and truthfully neither was Jasmine but neither of them were about to pick a fight with the Queen Bee over were they were eating breakfast this morning. Alessandra had finished Jasmine's hair and she was already started on her makeup. "I'll see you ladies downstairs." Aaliyah said as she grabbed her things and exited Alessandra's bedroom. "What was that about?" Jasmine said once the Queen Bee was gone. Alessandra just shrugged, "I don't know.", she said honestly wondering herself what the hell that was all about. "Yeah, well before we go downstairs you may wanna take care of that.", Alessandra face was puzzled but when Jasmine pointed to her neck she suddenly remembered the hickey that marked it. "Right. Forgot about that."

At Isaiah's place he was dressed and almost ready to walk out the door when his phone started ringing. As he picked it up he tapped the green button that answered the call and put the phone to his ear. Before he could even say hello Aaliyah's voice came through, "Are you going to that breakfast at IHOP?" she asked to which Isaiah replied, "Either I go there or Sienna comes here to abduct my ass. Why? You not going?" There was a brief silence before Aaliyah spoke saying, "Nah. Me and the other girls are doing breakfast at the Ambrosia Estate. Look can you do me a favor and keep an eye out." Isaiah who was busy racing around his room suddenly stopped as he now wondered what it was Aaliyah was up to. "Eye out for what? On who? Sienna?" Aaliyah spoke up quickly, "No. I mean ... I don't really know. Just go to breakfast and tell me if you pick up on anything weird." "Weird like how?" Isaiah asked as he walked over to the kitchen counter where his keys and wallet were and slid them into his pocket. "I don't know but you'll know if you see it." The line went dead after that and Isaiah was left in wonder and confusion. Shaking it off he grabbed his book bag that sat on the floor by him and he went.

Aaliyah put her phone into her bag as he conversation with Isaiah ended. When Aaliyah had gotten Honey's text she had saw that Honey was going to be at IHOP with Ricky, Chad and also Sienna. Which didn't sit right with Aaliyah. Her ex-best friend and her current best friend hanging out like besties. Then she had gotten a picture text of Ricky and Catalina sent to her by one of her informants and they were looking very comfortable. There was no one else in the booth with them but she chalked that up to the others being on there way. People from her school, mainly girls, sent her texts all the time of pictures and information on other people that they thought the Queen Bee would find of use. This was one of the many reasons that Aaliyah knew practically everything about everyone. The girl had more dirty on the student body than Gossip Girl had on the upper east siders. She just wanted to make sure knowing sketchy was going on with the people of her inner circle.

When she walked into the kitchen she found Jasmine and Alessandra sitting down at the table. "Nice job, Allie." Aaliyah said in regards to Alessandra's makeup job on Jasmine. The look was very naturally and Jasmine was a girl who looked great with or without makeup. "Were are the other two?" Aaliyah asked as she down at the table next to Alessandra. "Should be down soon. I stopped by Shay's room and told them that there was a change of plans." Aaliyah nodded as one of the cooks placed a plate of food down in front of her. She came to Alessandra's place more than enough for the kitchen people to know what she liked and how she liked it done. "Well am to hungry to wait for them." Aaliyah said as she picked up her fork and started eating her room.

It was when Linnaea went into the bathroom to clean herself that Shay took a moment to process Aaliyah's words. Naturally, it gave her pause. Who invited them to IHOP? The closest one was...she curse under her breath, fingers drumming on the dresser before grabbing her phone and tapping on the bathroom door. "Linn, I'm going to Allie's room to get some stuff to do your hair and make up." She called through the door and then hurried out of the bedroom. It didn't take her long to get to her bestie's room and upon realizing that she was alone, closed he door and made a call. "Did you invite us to IHOP?"

Sienna had just finished posting a pic of her and Chad outside of the restaurant with her tagging him as bae. It would get a rise out of Shay. Grinning, she told Chaddy to go inside without her just as her phone rang. She laughed when she saw that it was Shay and had something smart to say, but her friend beat her to it. Shailene's question gave her pause and Sia leaned against Chad's car. "Not trying to be funny, but your bandwagon consists of Ice Bitch and unlike Anna, the cold bothers me. Immensely." Sienna retorted before folding her arms over chest contemplatively. "And you're sure you're coming here?" Shay shrugged before plopping on Allie's bed.

"I don't know, but it's the closest one to the school." Sienna was silent for a good amount of time, or at least it felt like it. It was only two minutes that passed before Sia spoke again, voice sounding as if she was not affected. It scared her, it was like...Aaliyah. "Don't worry about it. If Barbie Bitch makes an appearance, I'll deal with it. Just...watch her." Shay nodded and hung up, grabbing a few items from Allie's room that she would need before heading out. Linn she be done soon.

Sienna didn't head inside immediately, she stayed leaning against the car and tapping her phone against her chin thoughtfully. How the hell did Aaliyah figure out their morning plans? She damn sure didn't say shit, she had only just alerted the media of her whereabouts a second before Shay rang her up. So, how...? The wheels turned in her head and then Sienna was looking at the latest social media posts by those she followed. One might find it interesting that Sienna cared so much about what her former best friend did, but Sienna was naturally protective of her close circle and Aaliyah was trying to press into the bubble she lost access to. And that left Sienna in vicious-Mama-bear mode. Her eyes fell on a post by Catalina and Sienna nodded to herself slowly, realization sinking in. Finally, she slid her phone in her bag and walked inside. She didn't stop to greet the hostess like Chad, she brushed past the unnecessary woman, eyes trained on her boys and Catalina. Her trademark grin, the one that symbolized that she was up to no good, brightened up the dark glint in her eyes.

"Sorry, I was making sure my pic with bae was perf," she absolutely purred, eyes trained only on Chad even as she perched herself beside Ric. Chad had sat beside Honey. He glowered.

"At least tell me it was a good one." He was referring to the fact that they had taken two, more like she grabbed him and smashed their faces together for a series of pics. One in particular consisted of her kissing his cheek, but she chose a much less questionable one.

"Of course not, cutie," she replied sweetly before eyes fell on Honey and focused solely on the blonde. "After all, we should be very careful of what we put out there. Who knows how others take it?" Sia knew the boys wouldn't understand and while she didn't like not being upfront, she didn't need Ricky being ready to exchange words with Aaliyah over this. She didn't even notice the boys give one another look. A beat later, she relaxed and tucked into her coffee before a thought struck her that made her turn to Ricky. "And text Izzy about what he wants. The food'll be here soon." Ric did just that as she drank some of the warm drink.

Linn grinned as Shai greeted her - very enthusiastically. She hugged the girl back, glad the alcohol had worn off a little. She was surprised she was so sober, and not hungover, but was glad. Maybe she wouldn't suffer too much at school like Naea was sure to. She offered her a sleepy smile once more, and a cheery wave to the rest of her friends, before she was practically dragged out by the girl that she often thought of as a more mature, much older sister, or even her mother. She listened to the girl's excited talk, grinning the entire time - Shai was very affectionate towards her, and Linn had to be appreciative of it. She loved the girl to bits - she meant a lot to Linn, especially since the passing of her mother, and Shai's almost natural stepping into that position in her life. She didn't treat her like a mother, though she loved her like one.

Linn couldn't help but laugh lightly at the comment Shai made, but once she brought out the outfit, Naea couldn't help but gasp. The skirt and necklace were a shade of aqua that brought out the turquoise in her eyes, and she immediately fell in love. "Shay! I love it!" She gave her a quick, but tight hug in appreciation, and carefully took the folded clothes from her. "I need to go wash, but I'll be back soon." She slipped out, and hardly heard Shai as she said she was going to grab some makeup and hair things. Naea usually left her hair down, but she didn't complain. She loved it when fiddled with her hair. It made shivers go up her spine - in a good way, of course.

Naea got into her routine of washing, and scrubbing her hands with soap. She hated feeling dirty - she had to make sure hand sanitizer was always in her school bag and she felt antiseptic. Thinking about her school bag, she sent a quick text to her dad, who texted back that Alice's nanny would drop it off when she got to school. She sighed with relief, and slipped into the gorgeous outfit. Shai had done a good job. The skirt fitted nicely, and it complimented her figure well. A brilliant outfit to go back to school in. She smiled to herself in the mirror, and returned to Shai.

When she wandered back in, she greeted the girl with a smile and a twirl. "I declare you to be the queen of fashion." She laughed slightly, before adding,"Although don't let Aaliyah hear me say that, she'd probably kill me." She smiled again before sitting down on the bed. "Also on the topic of Aaliyah, does it seem... strange? That she doesn't want to go to IHOP." She queried, unsure if it was just her that had noticed.

Florian let out a huff of breath as a text pinged onto his cell. He pressed the button and noticed Ollie's name in bold. He grinned, but noticed he was at the IHOP across the street. Shrugging, he stuffed his things that he didn't need for his first lesson - which, he admitted to himself, was probably homeroom - and slung his backpack over his shoulder, and tucked the skateboard under his arm.

He noticed the figure of Charlie down the hallway, through the crowd of students that had gathered. He smiled over in her direction, deciding not to go over to her. He had a slight headache now, and he was waiting on Ollie. Another slam of a locker opening caught Flo's attention, and he turned to notice Ollie. Grinning, he headed over to his friend.

"Hey! How was your holiday?" He greeted his friend in the most casual way possible, trying to not act strange in any way. If he was honest, Florian would say he wouldn't really know how to deal with friends - he didn't have many, after all. He leaned against the locker beside Ollie's and waited for his reply. "How was IHOP?" He followed up with it. Florian hadn't actually been to a restaurant before - he didn't have the money for luxuries like that. It had taken him long enough to get the X Box and that wasn't easy on his bank account. He adjusted his backback slightly while waiting for the other boy's reply, before positioning himself to get another glimpse of Charlie. He didn't know how he felt - he just knew he liked seeing both her and Ollie.

Shailene waited patiently for Linnaea to get ready and she positively beamed when the blonde emerged from the bathroom. The outfit definitely worked and Shay just had to give herself a pat on the back. She hadn't needed to wear the skirt herself, someone else - Linnaea, specifically - fit it much better. It was a good length, falling just at the blonde's ankles and luckily, they had the same shoe size. Obviously, Linn felt the same way because she had Shailene positively preening about her fashion skills.

"I try and it'll be our little secret," she replied with a conspiratorial wink before ushering Linn over to the bed. "I'll just do something simple with your hair and make-up. We'll need to hurry up if we want to eat something." Her stomach was still having a bitch fit and her head's aching alerted her to the fact that she would need some water for the dehydration, but besides that, Shailene just wanted to start the day off. And also, have a drama-free day. At Linnaea's inquiry about Aaliyah, her mind was brought back to Sienna and her dismissal of Aaliyah even including herself on breakfast. Both girls were positively powerful and so much alike that it was frightening, really, and Shay didn't fear many. And something told her that something was brewing in the horizon and Shay, while she loved drama in her shows, wasn't sure if she was ready for it. "I personally wouldn't worry about it. As long as she's not bitching at me, I'm fine. Besides, Sienna was at IHOP and I highly doubt having them in the same room so soon is high on anyone's list."

To: Allie
Almost done w/ Linn's makeup & hair. B down in a minute.

With a text sent, Shailene took the curlers that she had allowed to heat up and after parting Linnaea's hair, she began to curl the golden locks generously. Afterwards, she tied the hair back in a sort of loose twist so that Linnaea could achieve the pulled-back look. She liked messing with other people's hair, especially after having been the one to come up with their outfits. It made her feel like a real designer during a fashion show, a dream she only hoped that she could accomplish. Afterwards, she turned the curler off and unplugged it, checking her phone idly. "Bloody hell, we need to hurry up." Frantically, Shailene hurried to apply make-up to her friend's face. She had noted Linn's light bags and knew they needed to be covered up, so she hurried up and swept beneath her beautiful blue eyes. Afterwards, she did a light eyeliner to bring attention to the blue orbs and then a nice mascara that left the look natural enough. Once her lips were rosy enough, Linnaea's face was ready. "Perfect! Let's get going! I can get a pic of you on the way!" Shay practically sprinted out of the room to go put everything back.

Meanwhile, the trio pulled up on campus and climbed out of Chadwick's car with Sienna and Rick stepping out on the passenger side. Before Sia could get around to messing with Chad about the pic she had posted of them, which garnered a good fifty likes and nearly the same amount of comments gushing about how cute they looked together, Ricky had grabbed her arm.

"Yo, Chad, go ahead of us. We'll catch up in a bit," Ricardo said and Chad, confused, conceded but not before casting his friends a peculiar look. Instead of questioning them, Chad headed inside only to run into Shailene's step-brother, Michael. "Hey, she wanted her bag. I thought she'd be with you," Mike, an animal, told him and handed Chad the bags. One was her cheerleading bag, which baffled Chad, but he figured Shay was probably trying to work out with Sienna. She seemed to get a lot done when she was with the brunette. The other was her Moschino bag. Chad nodded before taking both, "Sure thing, thanks." Both guys nodded to one another before Chad headed off to his locker, still slightly puzzled by the tension from IHOP and the obvious thing that was occurring outside between his two friends.

Back outside, Sienna shot Ricky a very exasperated look. "This whole grabbing me up thing is getting pretty old, Ricky," she growled and Ricardo only stared. "What did you say to Honey?" Sienna simpered at that, huffing and tossing her hair over her shoulder. "I told the Christina Aguilera-wannabe to watch her back. Can I go now?" It was a half-hearted insult, but still. He was annoying her and she was getting pissed about being grabbed like this. Yeah, they fought occasionally, but she didn't need someone constantly grabbing her like she was a child. "I know you and I know that you know something. What just happened?" Sienna groaned and for a second, she contemplated stomping her feet like a very petulant child. But thought better of it and just glowered at Ricardo. "It was a girl thing, ok? Can I go be with my people now?" She gestured to the group of cheerleaders who all waved to her. They had decided to wait for the co-captain outside the school despite the fact that the captain was probably somewhere around school. Ricky stared at Sienna for a long time before tugging her close, wrapping one arm around her so that it looked like they were just hugging, which wasn't too out of character for them. They always went from hugging to fighting. "I know you're lying...just don't start anything that you can't finish," he told her quietly. Ricky was very well aware of the intimidation that Sienna had over the school population. Hell, even some of the jocks feared her. But if there was one thing that he was aware, it was the fact that it would be nothing but catastrophe if she was going where he thought she was going with whatever this was. And damn it all, he'd have her back, but he was really aiming to enjoy senior year. Sienna grinned. "Don't worry, your Majesty. Since when have I ever?" Sienna replied and after kissing his cheek, hopped off to her girls.

"You look up to no good," Tori, her number one cheerleader besides Shailene, commented as Sienna approached them. The grin she had been sporting had fallen off her face the second she had been away from Ricky and the distant look in her eyes alerted the Hispanic girl to the fact that something was wrong. Sienna bit back, "Just committing a light treason." She ushered Tori over and with a nod to the girls, the Devil Girls made their way into Hollywood High School. Immediately, anyone who was in the middle of the halls and weren't a Royal moved out of their way. Sienna and Tori were at the front of the pack and while the others chatted amongst themselves about classes and such, Sia tugged Tori closer. "As much as I hate doing this, I need eyes. You know those wannabes who tried out last year? Tell them I need them to do me a favor."Sienna didn't know why she was so on edge, but she was skeptical after knowing that someone had been tailing her and the others because of Aaliyah. And yeah, it was only a feeling, but when it came to the queen, since when had Sienna ever been wrong?

When she arrived in Allie's room, Shay paused for a moment, considering the side braid she was currently rocking. Aaliyah had been donning the same style and Shay never tried to wear the same things one of her friends was wearing, not unless it was twin day or something they intended to do. And with her hair still in its natural form. So, not trying to waste time in her thoughts, Shay released her thick mane and spritzed some of the spray she saw in her best friend's room, just to give her hair a quick sheen. She fluffed the very curly strands until she felt like they were absolutely perfect and tipped her hat somewhat in a stylish manner. Once everything was back to the way they needed to be in Alessandra's room, Shailene headed back to gather up Linnaea and the duo headed downstairs, where Alessandra and Jasmine were more than likely finishing up their meals. Shay waved to the sisters.

"Hello, loves. Sorry we took so long, but I think it was worth it in the end, don't you think?" She said and gestured to the absolutely adorable Linnaea who Shailene was very tempted to just go ahead and start snapping pictures for Instagram. But first, as her stomach would tell you, it was time to eat. Luckily, as she settled in a seat, one of the chefs (her favorite) placed a small plate in front of her with a knowing smile and a bottle of water. Shailene smiled appreciatively before her eyes snapped up curiously. "Where's Leah?" She inquired. While the queen of the school was known for going out on her own at times, Shailene had not considered that they had taken that long. Then again, Aaliyah didn't like waiting for other people. Shailene shouldn't have been so surprised. As she listened to a response from either of the girls, she demurely tucked into her spinach and mushroom omelet, taking only a moment in after the first four bites to sip the warm cup of chai tea that was placed before her only a moment after her food was. Like always, the Ambrosia staff was on point in regards to knowing the people who visited frequently and Shailene couldn't only smile in appreciation. In the midst of texting, Shailene sent out one text message.

To: Honey
Srry, running a bit late. Wanna meet b4 2nd period?

Once she was done, she turned to the others to see that they were mostly done. Gently wiping her mouth, she placed her eating utensils down onto the plate and then stood, grabbing her water bottle as well. "We should probably head out. My first class is history and I don't want to be late if Mr. Cavendish is still in that department." Shailene cringed at the thought. If there was one teacher that everyone in the school was intimidated, it was the man from England with a thick accent and even harsher grading policy. He was definitely one of the more harder teachers, as one of the seniors had informed her. And Shay needed to not get on his bad side, especially if she wanted to keep up her immaculate grade point average.

"I am going to murder these bitches. It doesn't even take me this long to get ready and you know how long I take to get ready!" Alessandra bitched as her leg impatiently bounced up and down underneath the table. It was already 7:10 and there was no one the four girls would be making it to their first period classes. The estate was about fifty minutes to an hour away from the school which meant they wouldn't get to school until at the very least the beginning of second period, and that was if the two late girls chose to come down the stairs anytime soon. "Relájese aliado. Nada sucede en la-," "Jas, English!." A small smirk spread across Jasmine's face that she attempted to hide as she realized that she hadn't been speaking in English. Alessandra hated when Jasmine and her mother spoke in Spanish because she couldn't understand what they were saying. "All I was saying was that you need to relax. It's the first day Allie. Nothing important is gonna go down on the first day of school." Alessandra sighed as she sat back in her chair folding her arms across her chest, "Maybe not school wise but drama is definitely brewing at Hollywood High." Alessandra couldn't shake Aaliyah's odd behavior this morning and while she couldn't tell what exactly was off about the queen she could sense that something was surely amidst.

"Hello, loves. Sorry we took so long, but I think it was worth it in the end, don't you think?" Alessandra and Jasmine heads turned to the kitchen entrance as the two beyond fashionably late house guests finally arrived for breakfast. "No. I don't." Alessandra stated as Jasmine just shook her head. "Where's Leah?" Shailene questioned as Linnaea and her joined the sisters at the table. "Where do you think?" snapping a bit Alessandra answered her bestie's question with a question as her impatience was getting to her. "We're running late. You two need to hurry. We're not gonna make first but we should be able to make second. At the very least get there before it's over depending on traffic." As a text came through to her phone Alessandra got up and left the table obviously upset by whatever it was she had gotten sent.


Alessandra returned to the kitchen just as the girls finished their breakfasts. "We should probably head out. My first class is history and I don't want to be late if Mr. Cavendish is still in that department." Alessandra was fuming on the inside but not about breakfast or the fact that she was going to be official late for her first day of school. Her issue was about what was happening at Hollywood High and the only person she wanted to talk to about it was the Queen Bee. "Well than for your sake you better hope Mr.Cavendish isn't still in that department. Let's go bitches." Jasmine who was in the moment scratching Jake underneath his chin looked to her sister, "Your driving." Alessandra rolled her eyes but she didn't fight her sister on it as she turned and headed to the front door with Jasmine and the other two girls falling in line behind her.

Pulling into the student parking lot at 8:13 a.m. the girls had gotten to school with seven minutes to spare before second period. The side entrance of the school was left opened until the end of second period so they didn't have to walk to the front entrance of the school. Alessandra had texted Aaliyah while she stopped at a light what classroom she was in and when the four girls entered the building she told them that she'd see them all later and went to find the Queen Bee. There was no point in stopping by class for the last five minutes of nothing so Jasmine went and stood outside of Isaiah class. She hadn't seen him since last night during all the madness and while he had texted her that he was alright there was nothing wrong with an in-person assessment.

As the last five minutes passed by the bell rang signaling the end of first and students flooded into the halls. "What has you all bothered and pouty so early in the morning?" Aaliyah asked as she walked over to Alessandra who was posted up against the wall across from Aaliyah's first period class looking very pouty. Alessandra said nothing as she held up her phone and to show the Queen Bee what had her in such a sour mood. "Damn. Had I know I would of warned you." Aaliyah said as she looked at the picture of Isaiah and Angelina on Alessandra's phone. "Who sent it?" Aaliyah asked as she handed Alessandra back her phone and the two girls started walking through the halls. Aaliyah had four dutiful wannabes that hung to her during school hours. It had been that way since freshman year and as the two A-Listers walked and talked the Aaliyah's wannabes stood the appropriate distance behind the two girls while following behind their queen.

"Chelsea." Alessandra answered simply as she stuck her phone in her bag. "Not as if it was secret. I mean it isn't like there were trying to hide it." You could hear the twisted scorn in Alessandra's voice and Aaliyah already knew that her selected heir to the throne was scheming. "What is "it"? Look I know how the picture looks but both Izzy and Angel are two flirty bitches. It could be nothing." "Or it could be something." Aaliyah sighed knowing that at this point Alessandra was like a dog with a bone and she wouldn't be dropping it anytime soon. "Look I have third period with Izzy. I'll talk to him then and figure out what's what. For now just chill the fuck out, play it cool and don't do anything drastic." Alessandra could see by the look on Aaliyah's face that she was serious when she said not to do anything. So until she got the facts she would hang back and obey the queen. "Okay. Fortunately for me my next two classes revolve around fashion. If there is one thing that can get my mind off of whatever the hell this mess is it's gotta be clothes." Aaliyah smiled and nodded happy to know that she wouldn't have to worry about Allie stirring the pot before she even knew what was brewing. The two royal girls shared a quick hug before parting ways to go to their individual classes.

"Allie gonna kill you. No actually Allie's gonna kill her. I can't say for sure what she'll do to you." Jasmine said as leaning on the wall outside of her vocal class. Isaiah had escorted her to class while filling her in on what had happened between him and Angelina. He was hoping that if Jasmine's reaction wasn't so bad that maybe it meant when Aaliyah and Alessandra found out they wouldn't take the news as bad as he knew they would. "Really?! Kill." Jasmine shrugged her shoulders as she looked at the people entering the classroom. "Do you think my sister will go to hell for killing an angel?" Jasmine joked with a laugh as Isaiah stood beside her giving not one chuckle. "Your not funny." Jasmine only laughed harder for a moment before recollecting herself sensing that her bestie was really stressing out about his current situation.

"Everything will be fine Izzy. Just play the date down when they bring it up. Make it seem like it's nothing. Or better yet if you can get Leah on your side." Isaiah sighed. "You say that like it'll be easy." Jasmine shrugged yet again. "I said nothing about easy, but, it's been over a year since you screwed up your chances of being my step-brother in-law. If you and Allie haven't gotten back together yet you probably never will. As her sister and your best friend my hands are pretty tied in this case. But, Allie as both of your besties has more wiggle room than I do and we both know if there is anyone Allie's gonna listen to in this case it's gonna be the Queen Bee." The late bell rang and what few kids were left in the halls begin racing into their classrooms. "Wish me luck." Isaiah said giving Jasmine a quick hug. Giving him a peck on the cheek she smiled, "Good luck Izzy." Jasmine went into her classroom and Isaiah walked the deserted halls to his second period.
