• Upbringing
"People say that I've had a very privileged childhood but they do not even know the half of it, honestly. I was given up for adoption because my mother was basically unfit at the time, or so I was told. But anyways, I was raised by my father and he had left my mother for another man. Yes, another man. Ever since I was little, they've done all they can to make me happy and feel special. When they heard try to sing along to a tune on television, they immediately signed me up for vocal lessons and I did that for about five years but I now have own vocal coach. I also took dancing lessons and excelled in every aspect of dance except for Hip Hop. I do not dance today though if I get into NYADA, I plan on retaking dance to better myself. My father’s basically pampered me into not taking any bullshit or anything else from anybody - No matter how good looking they may appear. I've been taught to remain strong, no matter how someone may try to beat you down. There has been some days where I have cried to them from being bullied and what not but they always told me to preserve and remain strong or when I grow up and be on my own, I'll be very depressed and probably won't have any friends and probably grow up alone. But I am here now at Hollywood High, where I plan on making new and exciting friends and furthering myself into the artistic world."

• Childhood Idol/Hero
"I can honestly say that I've idolized Barbra Streisand since coming out of the womb - Not literally. I also idolize Patti LuPone, Idina Menzel, Neil Patrick Harris, Helen Mirren, Liza Minnelli, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and the list is basically endless."

• Ideal Perfect Weekend
"My idea of a perfect weekend would be grabbing a few girlfriends and having a Spa day outside of town, of course. Then go out to eat and just gossip about anything and everything. And that's about it. I can see that happening soon because the first week of school is always the roughest, usually.

• Do you plan on trying out or rejoining any sports? Do you plan on joining or rejoining any clubs?

Nathan Rodney Lewis | 44 | Actor/Director | Living

• Relationship
Raquel doesn't really like to talk about her family since she has two gay dads now after her mother left for her to be adopted. She thinks that people will laugh and make fun of her and maybe even judge her if she tells the truth about her family. She usually makes up a little white lie when people asks about her family. Although, no matter what anyone says, she adores her fathers and their partnership. She'll tell some people the truth about her parents but she has to have a certain amount of trust in you before doing so.

♦Hollywood High♦

• Spent the Summer How?
"I spent the Summer with my producers, coming up with new and creative ideas for my next album. I also toured around the United States for a little while. I performed in Las Vegas, Nevada at the MGM Grand, Panama City, Florida at the Summer Fling on the beach, Atlanta, Georgia at a LGBT Pride Event and that was about it until I came back to Los Angeles, California and performed for the opening of a new arena there. Still don't know the name of it though."

• What are you most looking forward to this year?
"I am looking forward to seeing old and new faces at Hollywood High. I am also very anxious to see what everyone else has came up with over the Summer and to see if the talent competition is much more fierce as it has been in the future."

• Grade
Senior.

• Clique
The Virtuosos.

• Place on the Ladder
The Middle.

• Are you Happy?
Raquel is currently happy with her position on the ladder.

• If you could be apart of any other clique which would it be? Why?
Probably a Drifter because Raquel can befriend almost anybody.

• Secrets
"Well, besides me having two gay dads, I have never told anyone that I was adopted or that I have two gay dads. Once performing, I had a wardrobe malfunction and demanded for it not to be showed on television or released on DVD. I haven't told anyone that I almost slept with the Quarterback."

• Do you plan on joining a club or sport this year?
"I really plan on trying out for the cheerleading team and volleyball team but if both of those fails, I can be without them both. But I really want to be apart of the Student Council as the Vice President since that would look good on a college application. I also want to be apart of the Key Club since I love to do some volunteer work on the side. I also want to be part of the Gay-Straight Alliance and the Glee Club."

• Best Subject
"I am pretty good at Chorus, if that counts if not then I am fantastic at Chemistry. Figuring out those equations and blowing things up make my insides tingle."

• Worst Subject
"I honestly hate P.E. because the coach is mean and is always yelling for no apparent reason.

Tuesday, October 1, 2015: Spirit Week: Twin Day: 7:05 AM

It is, yet again, another day at the infamous Hollywood High School. At the same time, it isn't just any regular day. It is the second day of Spirit Week: Twin Day. And while most students are exhausted already on only the second day of one of the most fun weeks of the year (since they're all still technically still students and midterms aren't gonna study themselves), others are excited to pair off with their twins for the day. Excited to purchase Homecoming tickets...maybe anticipating actually asking that special someone to the dance. Don't forget that for the maximum amount of points for your class ALL or close to all of your classmates have to participate. Our delicious Devil Girls are giving out decadent treats during the lunch periods for the Cheer Candy fundraiser, Homecoming Prince & Princess nominations need to be submitted soon, and don't forget to pick up your Halloween tickets for Fright Fest at Six Flags Magic Mountain...

Twin Day Outfit ♕ Location: Hollywood High School ♕ Theme Song ♕ Mood: Amused



"I mean it exactly as I said. I have no intention of winning Homecoming Princess this year," Normani Devereux repeated herself - for the final time, she then decided - as she exited her royal blue Bentley Grand convertible. Siobhan, as she named her car, let out a small beep as she pressed the lock button on her keys before slipping the set of keys into the pocket of her jeans. Sliding her Michael Kors backpack over her shoulder (being mindful of the nails she had done herself last night), Normani fully turned to her group of followers, her own personal set of Wannabes that could always be seen following a few paces behind Normani if they all weren't rushing to class. Not like she treated them like followers, most of the time. From the outside, the other four girls seemed every much like a part of her circle as Normani wanted them to. After all, she didn't need them feeling the need to feel used. That left room for a hostile takeover out of spite and jealousy, and Normani Devereux did not have time to deal with one small mutiny in the midst of her two-year reign as queen of Hollywood High school. "Not like I'm making it some kind of public announcement or anything, but I have no need to win again. Don't make me repeat myself and don't any of you repeat me either." Her gaze was sharp, eyes slit only for a second, before her smile appeared again as she grasped the container of french toast muffins her head chef baked for herself anyone she wanted to share with.

While most of her classmates probably bitched and moaned their way through hot showers and breakfasts meant to wake them up to get to school that was only five to ten minutes away - twenty at the max, Normani lived an hour and twenty-two minutes away. Which meant she had been awake earlier than most, save for one Prep she knew for a fact worked himself to stupidity. It wasn't too much of an issue Normani; she had been doing so since freshman year and had a routine. She would wake up and perform yoga stretches, run a mile and a half, and then shower and go through her usual morning care regimen. Once that had been settled, she sat for breakfast, brushed her teeth again, and made sure all of her homework was collected in her backpack for the day and that her cheer bag was prepared. Afterwards, she got dressed in the Tommy Hilifiger outfit that would match with her bestie, Honey. While the latter was more inclined to wear a strapless crop top and high-waisted shorts, Normani preferred the long sleeved crop top, regardless of the California weather. For one, it was still a crop top and it allowed her to show her pierced navel. But it had sleeves since it was only slighter cooler in October, and her shorts and Nikes gave the entire ensemble a nineties feel that Normani could get with. She even added a pair of large silver hoops just to channel the era she felt that she was embodying. Once her hair and makeup were set, Normani gave an ootd post on Instagram, grabbed her bags and the freshly-baked muffins, and jetted over for the day.

Classes didn't start for a little over twenty minutes and Normani was in no rush to head inside to the cool building she would be stuck inside until later in the afternoon. So, she leaned back comfortably against her convertible as her followers welcomed themselves to the muffins that sat upon the hood of her vehicle. As they cooed over them hungrily (since Dinah always had a habit of skipping breakfast and Camila just loved food), Normani smirked in amusement, allowing her gaze to run over the parking lot as students and staff alike made their way over to the entrance of the school, conversing in groups or striding in in singles. A second later and she was texting her people, especially considering two were bound to be together.

To: Chaddy, Kit Kat
I swear if u 2 r fucking when i have muffins 4 yall...

Raquel and Tyler had been planning this day since the beginning of school, to be honest. Twin Day for Spirit Week was always fun and quite enjoyable to see who everyone was paired with. Raquel and Tyler decided to dressed as a pair of Minions from the hit movie The Minions. They finally came to that decision after so many others such as Mario and Luigi, famous video game characters, Thing 1 and Thing 2 from The Cat In The Hat and even Starbuck's Lattes, which were their favorite drinks from the popular coffeehouse. Tyler came up with the idea of dressing up as Minions and Raquel was exhausted with coming up an idea for Twin Day so she shrugged her shoulders and called it a night with the idea.

Raquel was up first inside of her home as she sniffed the air around her and the aroma of an array of breakfast items made her nose tingle with delight and her stomach grumble. She threw the covers from over herself then walked down the stairs, rubbing the sleep out of her eyes as she saw Tyler standing there over the stove, finishing up breakfast. "You made all of this?" She questioned happily while walking up behind Tyler with a smile.

"Why, yes. Yes I did." Tyler answered with a smile thrown back towards Raquel. "Wow is all I am saying." Raquel responded while sitting in a stool at the counter top as Tyler sat down a plate in front of her. "Enjoy." Tyler spoke through a smile as Raquel instantly picked up a fork and dove right into her breakfast that was prepared by Tyler. She moaned at the taste and savored it while she could. Tyler took the next seat beside her and basically did the same thing as they looked at each other and chuckled. "So, when are you going to talk to your brother again?" Raquel asked Tyler and silence filled the air. Tyler looked down at his plate and shook his head. "Don't know. He crossed over and now, it's like I don't even exist. We still love each other, yes but he's busy with becoming King Bee or whatever." Tyler spoke then waved his hand dismissively at the last part of his sentence.

"Oh. Well, if no one asks you to Homecoming, I'll go with you." Raquel said as she wrapped her arm around his and pressed her face up against his muscular arm. "Thanks but aren't you going with Trayson." Tyler made kissy faces and noises towards Raquel, who blushed while looking at him. "No. He hasn't even asked me yet. Plus we're just friends." Raquel said as Tyler rolled his eyes and scoffed. "Oh, whatever. He likes you and you like him. Just ask him out." Tyler insisted of Raquel, who waved her hand in the air. "Wait, isn't the guy suppose to ask the girl?" Raquel asked. "Yeah, but it's Modern day, change it up a bit, Rocky." Tyler nudged her slightly then got up from his seat, carrying his plate over to the sink, rinsing it out and grabbing Raquel's plate and doing the same. "Come on, we do not want to be late." Tyler said while walking back up the stairs and getting ready in Raquel's bathroom while Raquel got ready in the lower bathroom.

As soon as they both were prepped to start the day, Tyler ran down the stairs in his costume and looked around for Raquel. She was in her room, getting ready. "Raquel, come on or we'll be late!" Tyler yelled upstairs then instructed her butler, Carter to bring the town car around. Carter nodded his head and did what he was told as Raquel finally made her way down the stairs. "Ugh, it's about time. Come." Tyler waved his hand for her to follow him as Raquel pulled out her cell phone and sent a text towards Tray.

To: Tray ♥
From: Raquel
Plz b at school already. Me and Tyler are coming now.


She hit the send button then got into the car with Tyler, who was taking multiple selfies and posting them on Instagram and Snapchat. Soon, they both were taking selfies together and posting them, gaining instant likes from their fan base. "So, excited to see others dressed up?" Raquel asked as Tyler shrugged his shoulders then looked over towards her. "Yeah, I am but I know that we'll be best dressed." Tyler chuckled as Raquel shook her head with a giggle.

The drive to the school wasn't really a long one but they made it just in time, seeing the Queen Bee and her followers already there. They both just looked and kept on walking, not wanting to try one of her muffins. "She probably poisoned them with her witch powers." Raquel muttered as Tyler looked back at Normani then turned back around. "She's probably the one who brainwashed my brother." Tyler said as they made to the entrance of the school. "Wait, we should wait for Tray here." Raquel said while linking her arm with his tightly so that he doesn't move. "I don't want to." Tyler groaned as Raquel rolled her eyes then pulled out her cell phone again.

To: Tray ♥
From: Raquel
Where r u? Here in the hallway w/ Tyler.


Again, she hit the send button then looked towards Tyler. "You know, you should really text your brother good morning, or something." She urged him to do so as she made her puppy dog face towards him and Tyler scoffed while pulling out his phone. "Fine." Tyler typed a message towards Taylor then hit send and showed Raquel. "Happy?" She gave him a small hug and said. "Ecstatic." She released her grasp from around the scanned the halls for Tray. "He might be a bit surprised to see us dressed as Minions." Raquel muttered again as they were getting several stares from their peers and underclassmen but it might because they were standing right at the entrance of the hallway though.

Tray had been up all night the night before. Not only had he gotten home near two in the morning from the restaurant after a late shift, but he had to stay up taking care of his brother who was having some sort of an attack when he got home. It was a little frightening to see, to be honest.

Tray was walking up to his apartment door when he noticed it was open just a sliver. Freaked out, he called the police before walking through the door. He armed himself with his keys between his knuckles to do ultimate damage to whoever had thought it was clever to break into his apartment. That is, until he heard the piercing shrieks of his younger brother, Jamie, coming from inside the apartment. Slow was not a pace Tray was familiar with at the moment. He busted through the already open door to find his near elderly next door neighbor, Bea, trying to calm Jamie down. The boy looked at her with red in his eyes as he screamed nonsense at the top of his lungs. Tray ran to sit next to the boy on the couch and hugged his head to his chest, shushed him quietly, and rocked him back and forth until he slowed down his movements and quieted himself down. The boy sat murmuring to himself once Tray peeled himself apart from JT. He stood to address his neighbor, “Thank you very Mrs. Sully, I really appreciate you being here for him.” The older woman nodded her head as Tray slowly shuffled her towards the door. “He was screaming, you know?” At these odd hours of the night, I thought the boy was being murdered.” That old woman was always dramatic. Tray wondered how she managed to get through the door. “Yes, well that happens when you’re a paranoid schizophrenic.” Tray tried hard to make that as non-sarcastic as possible but he’s not sure he succeeded. “Isn’t he on medication? Because he should be. Woke me right out of a deep sleep.” Tray simply nodded. “The door was unlocked, so I let myself in. To check. You know? Wanted to make sure the boy was safe.” Beatrice Sully stood outside in the dimly light hallway of the apartment while Tray stood in the doorway, holding onto the door as though it was the only support he had standing up. “And again, I couldn’t be more grateful. Sleep well, Mrs. Sully. I’ll see to it that it doesn’t happen again.” Bea nodded as she walked away mumbling something, and Tray slowly shut the door behind her, locking his three locks on the door. He sighed and turned his attention back to his brother.

By the time Tray actually went to bed, it was only a few short hours before he was up again. He was up a half hour before his alarm but he just wasn’t able to get back to sleep. He got up and got himself dressed in his twin outfit for the day. He got JT dressed and ready to go. He packed themselves and they were on their way to school. Tray had to walk JT to his class to let his teacher and the nurse know that he had another episode. The meds that Tray usually had for JT ran out, even though the dosage didn’t seem quite right to begin with, and he’d need to pick some more up after school. JT would need to be watched closely today in class. After dropping off his brother, Tray made his way to his own school. Two texts came from Raquel while he drove, which made his tired eyes smile as big as his mouth did. He was truly happy when he was around her. He parked his old jeep in the student parking lot and walked towards the school sending Raquel back a text.

To: Raquel
From: Tray


Hey you, making my way towards you now. Sorry for the lateness. Rough night.


He turned into the hallway and from there he could see Tyler and Raquel dressed the same. He smiled to himself from a distance and waved to catch her attention. Once he got closer, he realized what their attire was: minions. “Really cute. You guys look like…”
Tray couldn’t get the words past his lips without laughing.

Lennox started his day on the wrong side of the bed. He woke up in perhaps one of the grumpiest moods he’s been recently. Normally, Lennox doesn’t have a care in the world about school. He gets good grades, he has tons of friends, he always has something to do, someone to talk to, and somewhere to be but for some reason the last place he wanted to be at during spirit week was school. He didn’t quite understand the stupidity behind it and who in the world was to blame for the idiotic idea of a whole bunch of doofuses walking around school dressed like each other. So when he rolled out of bed in the morning, he pulled together an outfit that he hoped to God no one would copy. He didn’t even want to post an OOTD on Instagram like he normally did so that no weird kid would try to dress like him at the last minute.

He grumbled his way down to the kitchen to make himself a quick breakfast. The house was empty, as it normally was by this hour. For whatever reason, Knox felt as though he lived in this house alone. Perhaps it was because he rarely saw his parents, or because it was always so dead quiet except for the occasional music blaring from his younger brother’s room. Either way, most of the time Lennox felt alone, he was at home. He opened the fridge, the cabinets, the pantry, but found nothing that he felt would satisfy his taste. He rolled his eyes and let loose a whiny sigh. “Always forced to fucking starve in this house.” He mumbled to himself just under his breath. Lennox let go the idea of food, grabbed his car keys, and headed to the garage. He climbed into his Land Rover and drove to hell.

Pulling into the parking lot, Lennox could see Normani. She was surrounded by little Queen Bee wannabe’s and it brought a smile to his face. “Always have someone up her ass, doesn’t she?” It was a true thought though. Queen Bee always had someone kissing her ass, or on their knees begging for her to say their name or breathe their air. He thought it was amusing. Knox parked the car and walked over to Mani. He pushed through the wannabe’s and leaned himself up on the hood of her car. Taking a muffin to his mouth, Lennox smirked at Normani. “Queen Bee, are you partaking in this foolishness?” He asked in reference to Twin Day. “Also, are these muffin gluten free? Trying to watch the carbo-load intake.” He asked as he chewed on another bite and pat on his stomach.

Taylor's usual morning started with Tyler knocking upon his door to let him know that breakfast was ready. But since the duo was currently not talking to each other, that didn't happen. Taylor woke up from his bed with a sigh and sat on the side for a moment, thinking to himself and wondering how could he get Tyler to talk to him again. With nothing coming to mind, Taylor shrugged his shoulders and lifted himself upwards off of the bed and headed down the stairs, where he hoped to see Tyler there, waiting for him to join in on the breakfast but again, that wasn't happening.

Taylor sighed yet again, lowering his head a bit as he walked over to the cabinet and pulled himself out a bowl, a box of cereal and some milk. He fixed himself a small bowl of cereal and sat on the counter, something Tyler would've gotten onto him about, just thinking to himself again. Today was Twin Day at school as apart of Spirit Week and Taylor had no twin for the occasion. Taylor finished his bowl of cereal and sat the bowl in the sink then went back upstairs and opened the door to Tyler's room, seeing nothing has changed since the last time he looked in there. Taylor knew that he must've spent the last few nights at Raquel's house since they were exceptionally close.

He closed the door to Tyler's room then went back to his own, picking out his outfit for the day. Taylor then proceeded his trek into his bathroom, where he ran the shower, letting it get nice and warm before stepping in. After about ten minutes, he emerged himself from the shower and dried himself off, wrapping the towel around his waist now as he brushed his teeth then walked back into his room, where he placed on his outfit for the day. It was one of Polo outfits. He was dressed in a green, short sleeved shirt, Khaki pants and green Polo shoes to match.

Taylor reviewed over himself in the mirror, satisfied, he sprayed on some of his Jordan cologne before exiting his room and the house. He grabbed his phone, car keys and wallet, as well. Getting inside of his car, he felt his phone buzzed in his back pocket. It was a text from Tyler and made him smile a little. Reading the text, Taylor knew that Tyler missed him. Maybe it was after one of Raquel's talks that led him to text Taylor.

From: Ty
Hope ur having a great morning. Just don't b late 4 school!


To: Ty
From: Tay
Leaving da house now.


Taylor hit the send button then started up his vehicle before exiting the driveway and heading towards the school. After a few minutes of driving, he had made it to the school's entrance and pulled up into his parking space and shut the car off. He emerged himself from the vehicle, getting instant stares from everyone as he sent winks their way. Most of the girls swooned at his wink as he shook his head with a chuckle then made his way to the hallway of Hollywood High.

Upon entering the halls, it seemed like all eyes were on him and him alone. He made his way over towards his locker, getting his notebook and a pen, which he stuck onto the top of his ear then closed his locker and leaned against it, back first. Taylor was scouting possible prospects to be his date for the dance that was fast approaching but most importantly, he was also looking for his brother and his new royal clique. Pulling out his phone, he'd send a text to Lennox.

To: Lennox
From: Taylor
Where r u, guys? Don't tell me I came early 4 no reason.


Taylor sent the message then pressed himself off of the lockers and started to roam the halls, waving at the people he know and whoever called his name, even stopping to have small conversations with a few people. Taylor then proceeded his trek once again, looking for his clique of guys so that he didn't have to walk alone, which was something the King Bee rarely did.


Image

Raquel felt her phone buzz in her hand as he saw Tray's name light up across her screen. A soft smile formed itself among her lips as Tyler rolled his eyes. She didn't even bother responding to his last message as she grasped Tyler's arm again and looked up at him. "We need to get a man, you know." She muttered as Tyler looked down at her with a raised brow. "Most definitely but I am happy being single at the moment." Tyler said though it was a lie just as Tray made his way over towards them.

When Tray made his way over towards them, she released her grasp from around Tyler's arm to give Tray a small hug then broke it off when he started speaking. "We're the minions." Raquel finished for him while standing beside Tyler, posing as she smiled widely when he said that they looked cute. She went to thank him but was interrupted by Tyler. "What's up, man?" Tyler said while giving Tray a high five then looked at Raquel. "Well, I'll leave you two alone since I still need to stop by my locker. Catch you guys later." Tyler said while walking off, going to his locker.

Raquel smiled a bit nervously while turning her attention back towards Tray now. "So, Mr. Tray, being the person that you are, do you have a date to the dance yet?" She asked him, meaning no offense to the start of her question as she started a small walk of the halls, waiting for him to catch up before starting her usual fast walk. A few people she knew stopped in their tracks after seeing her walk side by side with Tray, the athlete, the A Lister and she was just Raquel, the Virtuoso.

The stares and glares didn't bother her though, even the whispers didn't as she was sort of use to them by now. She looked at Tray and bit her bottom lip nervously while waiting to hear an answer from him in regards to the homecoming dance. "Oh, I have to stop by my locker, too." When she said that, she turned left and stopped by her locker, grabbing her book and notebook then closing it and went back to stand beside Tray, starting up a small walk again.

Fergus decided that he rather liked Spirit Week. People were so excited and busy and while the latter could be a negative, he could practically feel the energy as he walked into the school. It was as different from the atmosphere at home as possible. Sure, there were a few people who cared more about appearances during this time of year, but most people were genuinely excited for the week in itself.

Fergus walked into the school calmly with a serene grin on his face. A few people took a double take at him. He was actually dressed normally for the most part, which was unusual for a neo-hippie who often dressed in monk robes or kilts. In order to get into the spirit of the aptly named "Spirit Week", he had decided to participate fully in the events planned for the week. That meant dressing as someone's twin and given his friendship with Trayson, the obvious choice was to match his outfit with his. It felt strange to dress like an A-lister, but it was only for one day so he didn't mind.

He grinned when he spotted his friend and twin for the day. He grinned happily at the two people he was talking to. God, he loved the Minions. Still, when he caught a snippet of his friend's conversation with Raquel, he took a step back, trying to make himself inconspicuous in the crowd. He recognized something romantic when he saw it. He leaned against a wall and started humming.

"Om bhur bhuvah svah
tat-savitur varenyam
bhargo devasya dhimahi
dhiyo yo nah pracodayat"

Truthfully, Ian wasn't dressed all that differently from how he normally dressed. Jeans, glasses, and plaid shirts were the stereotypical components of a nerd's or geek's outfit. Thus, he, Daniel, and Emma settled on them and Ian was grateful for that. He didn't feel like buying new clothes that he would only wear for a bout a day. He wasn't rich, after all.

He pulled his car in front of the school. It was early, but that was the way he liked it. He was naturally an early riser and, truthfully, he slept only about seven hours a day. More than that just made him feel sluggish. It was a quirk, but it was one that he was happy to have.

"Still, I'd like a cappuccino and a cinnamon roll," he murmured to himself as he made his way across the parking lot from his car. He almost didn't notice another person walking towards the entrance until he was right beside her. He grinned at her.

"Good morning, Haejin. You look..."

He raised an eyebrow at her gait. It didn't look too enthusiastic.

"You look like you could use a cappuccino. I'll buy you," he offered.

Lennox sat against the hood of Mani’s car as Mani and Chris exchanged words and glances. It always amused him to see how the two interacted with each other. They handled each other with such grace. Not really, though. In reality, there was always some bickering between them and if there wasn’t, then it was probably a sign that the world was coming to an end because that was what was only normal for the two. He continued to munch down on the muffin while the two glared into each other’s souls, but quickly pulled himself up from the car when Chris told him they should give the ladies their time. He nodded towards Chris and walked into the cool air of the building.

As Knox walked away from Normani with Chris and Chad, he felt a text vibrate his phone in his pocket. He pulled it out and noticed it was from Taylor. King Bee couldn’t be seen by himself walking through the halls so Knox quickly replied that they were in the main hall. “Tay’s coming around guys.” He let the guys know so they’d slow their walk so they didn’t send Taylor on a wild goose chase. While they waited for King Bee to make his way around the hallway and catch up with the rest of the guys, Lennox figured he’d get his homecoming details in order. After all, what’s a man without his lady? Scrolling through his contacts, he got to Olivia. He started a new message to her and started typing.

To: Olivia
From: Knox
Hey pretty lady, what are you up to after school today? Gotta ask you a question


Lennox very well knew that there was already someone with their eyes on Liv but that wasn’t going to stop him. Jameson wasn’t anything compared to him and he knew he was a sure fire win in Olivia’s eyes. After all, James was so far in the friend-zone that there was no way for him to climb out. Of course Lennox and James we’re friends and he felt bad taking the guy’s spotlight but Knox felt he was better…equipped…to be dating Olivia. He slid his phone back in his pocket, waiting for a reply, with a smug look on his face.

The one thing he did know about Olivia, however, was how the girl was a difficult one to get. Not so much that she played hard to get, more so that it was almost like she didn’t want to be gotten. Lennox knew that in order for him to get some leeway on her, to sweeten her up, he’d need to go through her best friend. So Lennox nervously pulled his phone out of his pocket and sent another text, this one to Katherine.

To: Katie
From: Knox
Kath, gotta ask a favor. Need you to sweet talk Liv for me (:


Knox and Katherine have been friends for quite a while. The two grew up right next to each other and were always over each other’s house. It didn’t matter that Lennox was a grade level younger, because they were essentially the same age. Besides, the two only had each other growing up – at least that’s what it felt like from Knox’s side. Lennox also knew that Olivia and Katherine we’re best friends so the only way to get him in the clear with Olivia was to go through Kath.

A high five was exchanged between Tyler and Tray and before he knew it Tyler was making his way to his locker, leaving he and Raquel alone. Raquel turned her attention to Tray, asking him a question, before turning on her feet and walking down the hall. It wasn’t before she walked down the hall before he fully understood what she was asking him. Tray spread a small smile across his lips and walked alongside his crush. “No Miss Raquel, I do not have a date to the dance yet. You actually beat me to the subject matter.” He smiled, clutching the arms of his backpack that sat on his chest. He looked up momentarily and noticed the eyes and the whispers of the other students around him.

It was rare to see a jock hanging out with anyone who didn’t fall into his clique, or the other high class cliques around his. But for Tray, those labels never mattered. He thought of it as ridiculous to separate students into different classes based on their friend group, or their social class, or the like, but this wasn’t something done by the school. The social hierarchy was created by the students himself so it confused him even more as to why they took it so seriously. The whispers and the looks didn’t bother him though. He knew it was because most people were too shallow to understand so they always started rumors like, Tray got kicked out of the jocks and now he’s a floater or the two are forced to hang out together because he lost a bet, or Tray’s personal favorite: He got her pregnant because they were at a party and thought she was one of the lacrosse girls. Either way, Tray had honest and sincere feelings for Raquel and wanted a relationship with her.

The two quickly stopped at her locker but started their walk just as fast. Tray was getting nervous about the subject matter but he didn’t want to just blurt out the question. He wanted to ask her with a grand gesture. He felt as though a cute note or a cute promposal would make her feel wanted and isn’t that what every girl wants? “ I was thinking about asking this really cute girl, but I’m trying to make it special for her, you know? Don’t wanna just ask her like I’m asking her for a tissue or something.” Tray smiled down at Raquel.

As Tyler had finished up at his locker, grabbing the essential items that he needed for the day, he turned a swift heel and bumped into someone, looking at his things fall onto the floor. "Oh, I am so sorry. I am.." His eyes scanned up to the person he had bumped into and saw that it was his brother, Taylor. "No need to apologize, bro. I know you're always in a rush to get to class, considering your perfect attendance and no tardies." Taylor said as he knelt down and helped Tyler pick up his things. "Yeah, so I need to go." Before Tyler sped off again, his brother grabbed him by the arm, which caused him to turn around. "Can we talk for a minute?" Taylor asked Tyler, who scoffed and looked down at his phone, starting a timer. "You have a minute and go." Taylor raised a brow at Tyler then shook his head.

"How many times do I have to apologize before I can get you to come back to your house?" Taylor asked but didn't give Tyler a chance to respond before continuing. "I'm sorry times a million, Tyler." Taylor pleaded as a small chime went off on Tyler's phone and he eyed his brother. "You chose your own path this year. I still care about you because you're my brother but maybe you should get to your friends before they worry." Tyler said, scanning his eyes towards Taylor's somewhat posse then grabbed his brother by the arm. "Beware of Chris, I have a bad feeling about that one." That was all Tyler said to his brother before walking off from him, Taylor walking in the opposite direction.

Taylor saw Lennox standing alone while Chris and Chad was walking away. "Hey, Knox." Taylor said, giving him a high five when he approach him. "What's up with Chad?" Taylor asked Lennox while throwing a thumb towards them. He didn't bother asking about Christian since they weren't the best of friends and both of them are wanting to be the King Bee. Taylor, as of right now, is a self proclaimed King Bee and he sure was determined to take the crown this year. Sighing to himself, his eyes fell upon Lennox and looked at him with a raised brow. "Anyways, are you ready to get to class? You know that we cannot be late again." Taylor turned a swift heel and started walking, hoping that Lennox was following. Taylor had too much going on right about now and Chris was definitely in the back of his mind.

Raquel heard Tray's response to her question and she couldn't help but blush. She tried to hide it the best way she could but it was not even worth it since he probably saw her blush anyway. It went quiet for a moment because the stares and glances from others drifted her into a mindset that just made her think a little. She was always talked about but that's because she was a rising pop star and many people have heard her voice and said that she was really talented.

When Tray spoke again, she was pulled from her thoughts and looked up at him, listening to every word. She bit her bottom lip a little nervously. "Oh." Was all she said at first, thinking about who this mystery girl could be, unless it was her. She widened her eyes at the thought then looked back towards Tray. "I meant, oh, sounds nice. And I am sure however you ask her, she'll say yes with no problem. I mean, who wouldn't? You're Trayson Garrison." She smiled and blushed a little while still walking beside Tray.

Raquel didn't know what else to say towards Tray but instead, she wrapped her arm around his arm and heard several gasps from their peers and other people. She quickly removed it though not because of the gasps but because she didn't know how Tray felt about the motion. She then lowered her head while muttering. "Sorry. Sort of an instinct when I am walking with someone. Just ask Tyler, I do it to him all the time." She continued to mutter as she stopped in the hallway. "Well, I have to get to class. I know Tyler is probably already there and worried." She said, not really wanting to leave Tray's side at the moment.

"See you later?" She asked him after a brief, small hug then waited for his response before walking away, going to class. While on her way to class, she pulled out her cell phone and immediately texted Tyler.

To: Ty ♥
From: ♥Rocky♥
Tell me ur in class. Need 2 talk.


She hit the send button then jumped when Tyler sneaked up behind her. "Gosh. You scared me." She slapped his arm a little then wrapped her arm around his. "What's up, Raquel?" Tyler asked. "I think Tray is going to ask me to the dance. Or someone." Raquel offered Tyler the information and he raised a brow down at her. "You know it's you he going to ask. Don't sweat it and don't overthink it, sweets." Tyler said as they made it to class. "Your right. I mean, he said he wants to make it special. Better than Lennox, if you ask me." Raquel said, sliding in her desk and sitting beside Tyler. "That bastard. We never speak his name again." Tyler said while pulling out his pencil, ready to write.

Raquel sat at her desk, chin in the palm of her hand, sighing and drifting her thoughts away as she waited for class to start.

A lapse of judgement. That’s what we’ll call it. It took Lennox a second to completely understand what just happened. But the more he thought about why the hell Chris just blew his top on him, he understood. He mentioned Taylor in front of him, which is a surefire way to lose a head or an ear or something when it comes to Chris. He and Taylor are not even close to friends and it was completely accidental. Lennox forgot entirely that Chris and Taylor aren’t really friends and the mentioning of such sent Chris off the deep end. It was an honest to goodness error but it sent Lennox into a face palm. He gets what he did was stupid but Chris’s reaction was just slightly over the top. Completely unnecessary if you ask him. Lennox awkwardly waved up to Chad as the boys were leaving, he swung himself around away from the guys departing. He took a deep sigh, and rubbed his face with his hands for a few seconds before looking up and meeting Taylor’s eyes. Tay greeted Lennox and Lennox smiled slightly, “Hey man,” Lennox acknowledged Taylor. Before he could say more, his phone started vibrating in his pocket with multiple texts. One from Olivia and one from Katherine. He decided to play it a little safer than normal and texted Kat back first.

To: Katie
Anything for you kitty Kat. Help me with Liv. Does she have a date yet?


Without texting Olivia back, he fumbled his phone around in his hands, waiting for Kat to reply. He turned his attention back to Tay. He figured he should answer his question before anyone else blew up on him. “Oh, it’s just Chris. Bad mood. As usual. You know.” He kept his answers short and choppy. No need to fuel any Tay-Chris hate fire. He nodded at Taylor’s menton of class, “Yeah, we should get going.” Lennox awkwardly smiled and started walking towards his class.

Tray and Raquel continued walking by each other and continued their conversation about who Tray was going to ask to the homecoming dance. He was obviously going to ask her but he wanted it to be cute. He wanted her to feel special about the way he asked her. He wanted to bring attention to her because he felt she definitely deserved it. He looked down at her after telling her about some mystery girl and noticed a blush to her cheeks. He looked back up and smiled to himself. The fact that he was who he was made no difference to him but apparently it was a thing. Tray didn’t care that he was a jock or a royal or whatever, he cared more about his character than his reputation. “That’s silly Raq. I’m nothing special.” He scoffed – not at her but more at the idea that he was something to be impressed by.

A moment of silence was followed by an excited grip on Tray’s arm. He looked down at her when she pulled away and was slightly confused. He liked that she felt comfortable enough around him in school to hold on to him. But when she pulled away, he wondered if it was because his clique status. He wondered if she suddenly felt weird being around him because he was ‘Trayson Garrison.’ That didn’t mean anything to him, but it meant a lot to others and now he was worried it meant something to her. She started to get flustered and stumbled over her words trying to get out of the awkwardness but instead digging herself deeper in the quick sand. Tray chuckled to himself and tried to calm Raquel down, “Hey, Raq. It’s fine honestly, I liked it.” He smiled at her but it didn’t help. She hugged him, and quickly rushed away to class, but not before asking to see him later. He nodded, “Sure thing Raq, I’ll text you.” She rushed off to class before he could say anything else.

Tray smiled to the thought of asking her to the dance. He knew that she was the best fit for him. He pulled his phone out of his pocket and sent her a text. But he knew that he’d need more than just himself so he texted his best friend in hopes to get a little help with a plan.

To: Raq
Hey you. After school, parking lot. Meet me there. (:

To: Fergus
Ferg. Need your help with something

As the fourth period was coming to a close, her phone chimed on the edge of her desk and it caused her a bit of a shock. She saw Tray's name scroll across the screen and immediately smiled and blushed. She reached for her phone but Miss Neilson was standing at her desk, hand out. Raquel sighed as she placed the phone in Miss Neilson's hand but not without a pleaded look, first. She sat back in her desk with her arms folded and a slight huff. The class voices roared as they were all probably done with their work and homework that was scheduled for the night. She tapped her pencil against her binder then smiled widely as the bell rung for dismissal.

Raquel sprung up out of her seat and pushed her way through the sea of people before her and stood in front of Miss Neilson's desk. "Raquel, you are one of my top students and I would've never thought this would happen. I do not want to see it again, understood?" Miss Neilson rambled as Raquel was bouncing on the balls of her feet. "Yes, Ma'am. It won't. Top student honor." She held up her right hand while speaking that last part then grabbed her phone from Miss Neilson and bolted out the room, leaning against the wall beside her door, reading the text from Tray and instantly replying.

To: Tray ♥
From: Raq
Sry 4 the late reply. Phone got taken up in class. But hm, I'll think about it. ;)


She sent the message then placed her phone into her purse while walking the halls, her binder and books close to her now. Of course, her walking buddy, Tyler was right on schedule as she came up behind him and wrapped her arm with his. "So, guess what?" Raquel sang as Tyler looked down at her with a smile. "Tray asked you to the dance?! Gasp! Call the media." Tyler answered with a laugh then looked down at Raquel again, who rolled her eyes with a chuckle. "Sorry, what?" Tyler said as Raquel nudged him a little. "He hasn't asked me yet but I think he is going to." Raquel squealed while grasping Tyler's arm a bit tighter.

They stopped by Tyler's locker as Raquel leaned against the other set of lockers there, smiling then looking at Tyler. "So, anybody asked you yet or have you seen anyone worth asking?" She asked him softly as Tyler shook his head while replying. "Nope. I don't think I am going anyways." Raquel eyes widened up at the response she just heard. "It's your senior year! It's homecoming! You're going." She demanded while pointing an authoritative finger at him. "Okay, I'll go and be there, I guess." Tyler said while closing his locker and walking away from Raquel after saying that he had to go.

Raquel eyed Tyler as he walked away and lowered her head. She knew that shouldn't have pried herself into pressuring Tyler into going to the dance since he didn't have a date. Raquel just didn't want her best friend to be alone on a night, where she was having fun. While pushing herself up off of the lockers and walking to her fifth period class, she wondered who would be an excellent date for Tyler. She placed the thought into the back of her mind as she walked into her fifth period class, sitting at the head of the class, immediately opening her book and getting started on today's assignment, which was written on the board.

Location: Hollywood High School ♕ Theme Song ♕ Mood: Aggravated (Shared)



Normani was unyielding when the group entered the nurse's office first, not even allowing Anthony to take a step inside. He stared her down for only a second before her steely gaze sent him right down the hall. He could lick his wounds like a little bitch when he was at home, but she would be damned if he was allowed to come into the nurse's office. Of course, all under the guise that "We wouldn't want to increase the likelihood of a second round in one of the neatest rooms in the entire building" just to get the nurse to stop giving her a bitch face just for being there. Not that Normani planned to stay the entire time or even walk the couple to the main office. She had class and Chris, despite having class, probably wasn't going to head back so late in the period. She didn't respond to Honey's exclamation about people considering her white trash or even that Olivia would try to get Hailey to replace Honey as a royal. Nobody replaced anyone without the final decision being left to Normani. And it would be a cold day in hell before she EVER allowed some random chick to suddenly be considered one of her besties, which was what all - or at least, the majority - of the Royals were. Best friends to their liege. It just so happened that Normani was the only one who was actually in power and again, she would be damned.

While Normani and Chris lingered by the opening of the nurse's office, Chad sat, feeling more guilty about being in trouble than for what he had done to actually get in trouble, hating the way the alcohol burned again his skin. The corner of his mouth quirked, instinctively, at Honey remarking that they would look badass. He also, shoving away his earlier frustration, did not hesitate in kissing her back regardless of the cough from the nurse. "Really, you two?" She snapped and finally, Honey pulled away so that the older woman could get a better inspection of him. Which only made him groan. "Cat..." he began in the middle of her plea to Normani, but Normani turned to him a sharp stare. "Shut it, Boy Scout." He could only bristle at her for the nickname, a rarity in and of itself unless she said it with a grin. "Just...wanted to tell her not to talk about herself like that," he said quietly, though the other three could hear him clearly. Normani just ignored it and Chris smirked lightly.

"Done," Normani finally said and shared a small look with Chris to which he only nodded. "Keep me posted on what the deliberation is and don't forget, beach party tomorrow." Hugging her bestie quickly, Normani finally tossed a gentle smile Chad's way. "Try not to take on any more missions, Batman. You don't have your trusty sidekick anymore." Finished with her partings, Normani headed back to class, but not without asking for a pass from the nurse. Chris nodded to Honey tensely, forgetting all about his typical flirtatious remarks in favor of turning to his own best friend. "Don't worry about a thing, Chad. We'll get it straightened out."



3: 10 || Ninth Period

Location: Hollywood High School: Cafeteria ♕ Theme Song ♕ Mood: Devious



By the time the senior lunch period came around, most students were ready to go home. Particularly Normani who was already done with the excitement of the day. As soon as she made it out of her Physics class with Olivia and the others, she instructed all of her followers to find every hint of footage from the fight and delete them, sending each and every proof to her as a means to confirm that they all had been deleted elsewhere. It took until their lunch period, but it was enough to appease her mind. Once she got from cheer practice (which, for only the third time in her entire all-star cheerleading career that she actually did not want to go), she could place all of the footage on a single flash drive that she could hide unless she found a way to use it against Anthony in the near or later future. If he knew any better, he would make it later. Much, much later. Afterwards, she finalized the tweets and Snaps about her throwing a beach party for tomorrow since that was the next Spirit Week theme, a means of distraction for everyone else. Small moves, but enough to get the - for lack of better terms - "lesser" students to think about something else. However, despite the tame quality to her latest machinations, Normani was not done with Anthony. She made a promise and she was going to bury the situation. But before then, she sent out a few text messages.

To: Danny
Study date 2nite or nah?

To: Honey
Update plz

To: Angel, Camila, Chelsea
Don't forget ur cheer candy duties 2day

To: Liv, Kat
Headin 2 caf now

"I pretty much convinced coach already to bench him for the rest of the semester," Chris explained as they stepped into the cafeteria together. Normani normally made an entrance with her girls and she was going to spot them soon enough, but she had immediately run up on Christian the second she got out of eighth period. "He's pretty much fucked for the year. Coaches can't scout a bench-warmer." Normani was not satisfied. As anyone knew, messing with someone she cared about was one of the biggest mistakes a person could make. She was the one who stayed on top of any and everything. She had more dirt on the student body than a child wearing white tennis shoes on the baseball field did, and that was saying something. Despite her own band of followers, Normani received intel from students just begging to be acknowledged by her, even though she was privy to greeting all of her subjects. And that's what the students were at the moment - subjects. And she had a lesson to teach them - even if it meant making an example out of Anthony McLaughlin.

"Well, I want more," she said quickly, a hand on Christian's chest so that he wouldn't step any further into the line formed where the food was being served. She seemed to take her time in allowing her eyes to rake up Christian's muscled form before meeting his gaze. Which had his palms feeling suddenly more warm than they needed to be. He was nervous. He couldn't tell if Normani actually liked what she saw or was simply mulling over how to destroy him. Somehow, he thought it was both. "What I want is to make sure that the next time a no-neck fucker lays a hand on one of mine, the only thing on his mind is the cold chill of fear for how much more hurt he's gonna be than them." Christian didn't react for a moment, just because he couldn't read Normani. She rarely asked for violence and the other jocks could do so; they've done so. But she has never asked for it before. However, a small smirk flitted across his face as he stared down at his suddenly - though, not unsurprisingly so - sexy ex-girlfriend. "Playing with the dark side, aren't you Mani?" She shouldn't be influencing his flirtation, but that didn't stop Normani from discreetly playing with the lapels of Christian's jacket before allowing those same slender fingers to trail up his firm, covered chest. She paid no mind to the classmate nearby who had to gawk at the very obvious seduction. "Oh, baby, this ain't dark. Dark is my making it so that your boy Tony can never walk the halls of HHS ever again," she practically purred, batting her thick lashes up at him only for a moment before grinning and leading Christian over to the line.

"But see, he'll walk. I want him to, but only to gain the satisfaction of knowing that for every step he takes down a hallway, there's fear. And he remembers that the next time he steps out of the line I placed him in, there won't be mercy. I protect what is mine - we protect what is ours." It was a bold move, using them as a "we" when she had made it clear that she was not going to call Christian her man nor her King. However, stroking his ego just enough with the same amount of flirtation got the job done because his gorgeous eyes flashed hungrily before his smirk turned into a wolfish grin. "Consider it done." Normani only smiled brightly, ruffled his hair and then leaned up to kiss him on the cheek swiftly. "Thanks, babe." Ready to step away, Normani settled her gaze on the same classmate that eyed them in surprise and offered them the sweetest of smiles as she said, "You might wanna pick up your jaw off the ground, honey. You might choke on all the flies swarming around ya."

Satisfied, Normani eyed the cafeteria for her crew and found Liv and Kat entering the large room. Luckily for her, she was not one of the cheerleaders who had to run the Cheer Candy fundraiser today. They had a schedule and she had already manned it with a few choice cheerleaders yesterday, and would do so again on Friday. So, she had no need to rush over to her girls, though she stole a picture of them in the process of keeping an eye out for her crew. She would post it on Instagram later during the evening and send it to the chronicle for pics of the week. She made it her mission to traipse over to them, the naturally seductive sway in her hips a sight for sore eyes as she finally Kat and Liv. "Let's go put in our final Homecoming Prince and Princess, and then eat outside. Clifton's bringing our orders from Health Nut in five and it actually feels great out there right now. Besides, I've been in this building too long and I'm suffocating."

Twin Day Outfit ♕ Location: Hollywood High School: Cafeteria ♕ Theme Song ♕ Mood: Ebullient



Normani caught Liv's smirk at her blatant display of haughtiness and only grinned in response, linking arms with both the blonde and the brunette with herself in the middle. She ended up coughing on a chortle, however, the second Katherine started questioning her, and Normani tossed the brunette an amused stare. "Well then, lucky for you, Honey doesn't need a nose job, babe. She wasn't the one who got popped in the nose. That imbecile was." Normani wouldn't even let the fucker's name cross her lips, she was so upset with him. And yes, she was being just a bit unjustifiably upset with him. It had been a knee-jerk reaction; you get hit and you hit back, and jocks were more prone to such actions. However, at the end of the day, he could take a hit. And Honey probably could too, but the point was that girls already had to deal with blatant verbal sexual abuse on a regular basis what with teachers only gently tapping the boys' hands like they were five and didn't know any better. She would be damned if she didn't make a stand against that in some way. More importantly, two of her best friends were harmed. You get no forgiveness from that.

"And she hit him because the asshole kept making derisive commentary about her like he was trying to throw it in Chad's face that he wanted to bang her," Normani went on to explain as she pulled the girls along to the Student Government table to put in their nominations, ignoring the pang of not seeing Chad where he was supposed to be as student body president all because he wanted to be a good boyfriend and shit. Which wasn't a problem, but still. "Moral of the story, don't fuck with another guy's girl and you won't get your shit busted in the middle of your classroom by the one guy nobody would've thought had a smooth left hook. Not that that isn't the least of his worries because it is." She didn't explain what she meant and her eyes darkened only for a moment before she grinned at the secretary, Danielle, and treasurer, Lawrence. "Hello, my loves. Just putting in our votes." Danielle immediately perked up and leaned on the designated table with her elbows, a wide, shy smile crossing her round face. "Hey, Mani. I just voted for you. Did it twice, but we don't gotta tell nobody." Normani giggled right along with her as she took up the small sheet of paper that served as the ballot, winking co-conspiratorially as she placed a finger before her full lips. "Secret's safe with me, doll."

While she checked off the people she wanted to be in the running, marking herself as number two in who she wanted to win, she heard a very familiar voice. And while Taylor couldn't see her face at first, Danielle and Lawrence could, and Normani made a show of being disinterested with an appropriate eye roll that made them both chuckle. Not bothering to grin again, Normani peeked over her shoulder at the male, whipping some of her dark hair back over her shoulder to get a better look at him. Contrary to popular belief, Normani didn't not like Taylor. That would be too dismissive and she only dismissed the people she did not like. At the same time, they weren't friends and he technically wasn't one of them. She knew she could end the whole debate right then and there, and declare him a Royal if she so chose. But that was the point - she didn't choose. Taylor just automatically assumed that when he claimed the role, the school would accept it. And that was not the way it was going to work and she wouldn't acknowledge him as king. Or anything, other than a fellow classmate and a human being.

"What happened was that a situation had come up and now it has been handled and people are over it," she explained rather simply, though her words were purposefully cryptic. It was over. Normani made sure that it was over and once she ended something, it was over. If you didn't catch wind of it before, then you were shit out of luck. So she managed a sweet little smile for him. "Nothing to worry your pretty little head over, doll. Chaddy's gonna be fine, just grounded for the next two days is all." Normani waited for her girls to finish up with their ballads before sliding hers into the box and then turned fully to face him, having to look up a little at Taylor since...well, let's be real, she definitely was not on the tall side of life. And only because she didn't wear her heels today. "A party. I have a party to finish planning for tomorrow. Arabian Nights themed, to be exact. Starts at 4. Rules and such have already been sent in a mass text, you really should keep up to date with things." Normani added the last bit of condescencion with a tilt of her head and a knowing quirk of her lips. Call it tough love, if you will, but she believed that if Taylor wanted to make himself a Royal, then he needed to know how to know the ins and outs of being one. And that meant being on top of every party detail the A-Listers put out. Which any A-Lister would know.

If they were an A-Lister.

Finally, her phone buzzed, signalling that her driver had arrived with their food and Normani turned her attention, effectively dismissing Taylor, back to her friends. "Ready, ladies? Clifton's outside and my stomach is like, two point two seconds away from making actual noises right now and we have to talk about colors."

Twin Day Outfit || Location: Hollywood High School || Theme Song || Mood: Discombobulated



Chad may have been a little bit of a bitch; he could accept that. He balked when Normani practically snapped at him, though he figured - after she left - that it came from a place of actual concern, and not anger directed towards him. She wasn't good at the whole baby-let-me-hold-you unless she felt absolutely helpless, so he had taken her tough love earlier like a champ. Offered barely a hint of rebuttal. Didn't even bother gently coaxing her into not going after Tony like he normally would because it was unnecessary and they were going to get punished anyway (and no, there was not a part of him that reveled in knowing that Mani was planning something). But now, sitting in the receptionist's office waiting for the principal to call him and Honey in, he really did feel like the little bitch Chris joked that he acted like sometimes. Like, not because he was feeling that guilt - even though he was because, hello, fucking honor roll student of the year here, thank you! No, it was because while there was guilt, there wasn't and that was Chad's problem. He was usually so much more in tune with his feelings. He might not officially verbalize them or anything, but he at least was able to talk himself through things. Or out of them, if you asked the important people in his life.

The point was while there was guilt and shame for actually being sent to the principal's office only the second time in his entire primary education career - there was still anger. A bit of male satisfaction after having successfully gotten through his official first fight with less scraps and bruises than the other guy (take that, Chris, he wasn't that much of a little bitch, thank you very much), a bit of possessiveness because umm, who the fuck ever told anyone to put a bruise on his girl's face? And just...all of those things inside of a guy who did not process too many feelings at once and it left him ready to leave, regardless of what the outcome of the meeting was.

But first thing's first: Honey needed to stop. Gathering her face in between his hands, Chad leaned over and silenced her litany of apologizes with a firm kiss, pulling away only when he heard someone's throat clear up. "Hey, this isn't your fault. Not blaming you in any way, okay?" And no, Chad did not feel a hot flame of shame wash over him at the look the principal shot his way when they finally made it to the office to hear their sentencing. Which wasn't too bad considering both Rick and Chris had gotten heavier for near similar situations. Though, to be fair, Chad's opponent was not knocked unconscious like in Chris' case or rushed to the hospital, like with Rick. So, that was probably another factor into why he was getting off easily. However, it also meant that his mom was getting a call and Suzanne Shanks was not a happy camper when it came to her kids. The last time his mom had actually been upset with him was because of the freshman year prank and that was because of a lot of different factors, such as her black child in a predominantly white neighborhood where they were prone to judge at the first sign of any person of color doing any one wrong thing in front of their privileged little white angel. But, of course, Suzanne was too classy to call someone out on that and Chad, at the time, just wanted to be able to play his video games again.

Soon, he and Honey had separated only for him to make sure that his fellow SGA members would be able to handle the partnership with the dance committee for the final touches for Homecoming, not to mention getting his assignments for the next two days. And so what if it made him every much an overachieving prep as the next? He didn't get the highest GPA in his class for nothing. It gave him some time to hit up some friends, just to get back with people.

To: Sam
Ur a mess. But thanks. Suspended 4 2 days, btw. C u at Mani's party 2morrow.

To: Tyler, Taylor, Raquel
Going MIA 4 a bit. U guys ok?

To: Chris
Don't go 2 far w/ watever u & Mani r planning

Finally, Chad was outside and loading his stuff into his car when Honey came over, a small frown marring her face. Knowing her, she was still feeling guilty, a though confirmed only by her asking if she could be Catalina. Who was nearly entirely different from Honey, but only by so much. Calmer, sweeter and a hell of a lot more passive than Honey actually was. Which made Chad smile and accept her embrace, wrapping his long arms around the shorter girl and bury his nose in her hair. "Let's go home then," he obliged with a small peck on her lips, before gathering her things so they could head to his house.

She was quite relieved that classes were finished for the day and she could go to the cafeteria, eat a quick lunch then go home. Well, meet Tray in the parking lot then go home. She swooned at the thought of meeting Tray then bit her lower lip while she stopped at her locker, placing her books inside then grabbing her purse and slung it over her shoulder. She didn't have any work to do after school because she had already did it in class. Typical Raquel. She looked over towards Tyler's locker and saw him putting his things up and smiled softly towards him. Raquel started her walk over there towards him as he closed his locker and looked at her, smiling, as well. "Sorry about earlier." Tyler instantly said as Raquel shook her head.

"No, I should be the one apologizing. I shouldn't have pried but you know me." She said with a sigh afterwards then linked her arm with his as she stood beside him now. "Let's forget about it. Lunch?" She questioned towards him with a raised brow. "Yeah, lunch. Thank god, too." Tyler said as they walked side by side, arm in arm and eventually made it to the cafeteria, where they bumped into Lennox. "Oh, excuse us." Raquel studied the male's features then rolled her eyes with a scoff. "Or better yet, don't." She tugged Tyler's arm and went to grab a plate as both of their phone went off. It was a text from Chad saying that he was going missing in action for a bit and asking them if they were okay.

"Weird." Tyler muttered as Raquel nodded her head then went to typing on her phone keyboard, replying to the text and Tyler followed suit.

To: Chad
From: Raquel
Okay. And yes, I am fine. How are things with you? Everything okay?


To: Chad
From: Tyler
Take it easy, bro! By the way, need to fill me in on what happened.


"I hope everything is okay." Tyler said as they sent their messages and Raquel squealed as her eyes locked on Tray. "Sorry." She looked up and said to Tyler, who was wiggling his finger in his ear. "What? Can't hear you!" Tyler said with a chuckle then turned to see Tray. "Come on." Again, Raquel dragged Tyler over to where Tray was and smiled widely and brightly. "Hey. So, how was your day?" She'd ask him then remove her arm from around Tyler's while looking at a student's plate of food, making a disgusted face then looked between Tray and Tyler. "I say we go somewhere to eat. Yeah?" She offered to them both, rocking on the balls of her feet. "I'm down." Tyler agreed then they both looked towards Tray, awaiting his reply.

Raquel was actually nervous but a bit anxious as to what Tray had wanted with her in the parking lot. She couldn't help but taunt towards Tray at this point since the thought crossed her mind, again. "And we'll be in the parking lot, too, Tray." She winked towards him but still waited for his reply before her and Tyler started walking towards the doors of the cafeteria.

Taylor eyed Normani as she was speaking towards him, hearing her simple answer to his first question then continued listening. "Good thing they're both okay though." He interjected as she mentioned something about a party and a mass text. "I didn't get a text." Taylor muttered as he pulled out his phone and read the message from Chad. With a raised brow, Taylor looked at Normani then nodded his head. "Got it." As she somewhat dismissed him, Taylor responded to Chad's text since he kind of embarrassed himself in front of the Queen Bee.

To: Chad
From: Taylor
Fine here. Thanks. R u and Honey good tho?


He sent the message then walked over towards Lennox and saw that his brother and Raquel just left from beside him. "What's up, man? Pretty eventual day, huh?" Taylor said while looking over at his brother and Raquel, briefly before looking at Lennox. "So glad that school is almost over with today. You got plans tonight?" Taylor asked him then noticed Tray had entered the cafeteria. He gave him a welcoming head nod then turned his attention back towards Lennox.

"I know Mani mentioned something about her party sometime soon." Taylor offered towards him then still awaited to hear his responses to his questions.

The term bat shit crazy is something that was roaming the halls of Hollywood High like a virus. Whispers among students had grown ten-fold and it seemed that no one cared about keeping their thoughts and opinions to themselves. The whispers had grown to fully audible murmurs that resonated through the halls of the high school. Everyone seemed to had lost their mind in a matter of a seven-hour day. It was quite terrifying actually how quickly everyone had turned on each other and the school year had barely even begun.

Tension was high between everyone. Friends seemed to be turning on each other as though there was a disgusting plague that infested everybody. Seemingly, true emotions and opinions were coming out once and for all and everyone seemed to be acting upon them. And the tension was so thick, it created a fog that clouded everyone’s judgement. Fights were breaking out; friendships were breaking; the day was a complete disaster.

Both Lennox and Tray knew little of what was going on around them. Tray knew just enough of what had happened because Honey had sent out a text, to him included, explaining what happened. He was a little shocked to hear about what happened, but he can’t say he was all that surprised. Honey wasn’t the type of person to sit around and let shit happen to her. She’d fight back with all her might, and Chad… well, Chad wouldn’t let anything happen to Honey. It seemed as though everything in the world was happening today.
Lennox received a text that infuriated him to a certain degree. Did James actually think that Lennox would believe that Olivia would say yes to him? The girl was not that desperate for a date to say yes to James Page. Not that James Page was a bad guy to like, but above Lennox Atwood? That simply wasn’t a thing that he would let happen. He disregarded the text entirely with the roll of his eyes and sent a text back to James and the group.

To: Chris, James, Sam, Chad, Val, Taylor
Sure ya did bud, have fun with that


Lennox knew he was running out of time. If James really did ask Olivia out to the dance, he’d want to hear it from her. He figured the best way to get the answer out of her was to send her a text, so he scrolled through his phone until he found Olivia’s name and sent her a text.

To: Liv
Liv! Heard the news, congrats on getting asked to the dance by Jimmy James!!


Perhaps Lennox was messing with the bull in this situation, but he was going to wait for the horns to come his way before he packed away from this fight. Knox truly believes there’s no one else more worthy for Olivia than him. It’s entirely an irrational thought but Knox refuses to believe anything else. The pedestal is high for Lennox this time. Lennox made his way around campus looking for his friends before his phone went off again with a few texts from Sam. He never understood why Sam insisted on being friends with everyone and inviting everyone to everything. More particularly he didn’t get Sam’s friendship with Tray.

Tray’s day was as busy as always. His friends were starting brawls with other people and tension was rising hour by hour. Before he knew it the entire Royals Class had created issues within the clique and the drama was quickly ensuing. Tray did his best to stay out of the trouble. He didn’t like getting involved in other people’s problems to begin with, but even more than that he didn’t like to be at any root of trouble. He had too much at stake to get involved in anything that caused suspensions or the likes of such. When the text came from Honey, it made Tray chuckle to himself. Mostly out of amusement of the fact that Honey tried to fight a guy. He didn’t expect Anthony to punch back though – didn’t take him for a woman beater but Anthony always has been the type of guy Tray kept his distance from.

The day went on seemingly fast, however. Tray barely had enough time to round Fergus together to help him with his plan. In between classes, however, the two would meet in the class to pass notes, plans, and ideas. Tray’s idea was to create a promposal for Raquel out in the parking lot. He wanted it to be something cute but not too over the top. The two weren’t dating after all, but perhaps this could have been the segway into that relationship.

Tray skipped two of his classes today in order to get everything together for his asking Raquel to homecoming. He went out and got a few bouquets of roses and used those to write out Homecoming? right in front of her car. He recruited the help of Fergus to stand by and watch the roses to make sure nothing happened to them. At lunch time, Tray met up with Raquel once again. The teasing was cute but Tray just wanted Raquel out in the parking lot so she could see the message Tray left for her. “So why not head out there? We should take your car Raq.” Tray smiled and winked back at her as he joined Raquel and Tyler out to the parking lot.

Ian thought for a moment. He didn't have any plans at the moment. He had already finished most of his homework, but none of his friends were interested in doing anything. He opened his mouth to reply when his phone vibrated against it. Sheepishly, he took it out of his pocket and read Hunter's text.

"Oh, I have calculus to finish with Hunter. I'm not sure if he wants to meet at his and, well, your house or mine. I can eat with you and then meet with Hunter wherever," he told her awkwardly. He wasn't sure how well she and Hunter got along. He wasn't sure how he'd feel if his parents got divorced and one of them remarried, expecting him to see complete strangers as siblings.

"I can follow you. No sense in leaving my car here," he told her before texting his friend.

To: Hunter

No problem. Your place or mine?


Image


Fergus stared at the bouquet of flowers on Trayson's car, attempting to pay attention. Don't get him wrong. Fergus was always happy to help a friend in need, particularly for something like this, but he was notoriously flighty and absentminded. Standing still for anything but meditation or prayer just wasn't in his nature. But, his friend needed him to make sure the flowers stayed in place, so he fidgeted and waited for his friend to lead Raquel to her car.

"Maybe I should have put more thought in asking Maya out... Next time, if it goes well," he promised himself. He hummed absentmindedly.

Outfit || Location: Normani Devereux's Home || Theme Song || Mood: Optimistic


"I love you...I do. I know...I-I-I know I don't say it often enough, but never doubt that. And never doubt that I don't blame you for earlier - for any of this. I just...you want to be Catalina right now and I just wanna forget that the last few hours just happened. Can we do that?"

That was what Chad had had to say about the situation yesterday and that was honestly how he wanted to leave it for now. While the reasonable and logical human being inside of him understood the importance of having the conversation his girlfriend had been trying to conduct, a rather petulant version of himself - which had taken on the outer visage that Catalina had to confront - was adamant to leave it where it was. Yesterday. Or...well, at the time, it had been earlier in the day yesterday, but now he was definitely not in the mood to confront the events of the day before. No, he wanted to actually enjoy a party. He wanted to drink (and did Chadwick Arsenault drink often? Abso-fucking-lutely not, but he was gonna do it today!) and laugh at some of his classmates (because knowing Chris' goofy ass, he would be the main one trying to belly-dance) trying to belly-dance, maybe even partake in some hookah. Who knew? The point was that no, he did not want to talk. No, he did not want to acknowledge the rage at which he had attacked Tony. That also meant not wanting Honey to change, in any way since he had fallen in love with her for being herself, not because he wanted to eventually change who that person was. Kinda defeated the purpose, if you asked him.

Of course, that meant asking him and he wasn't even answering his own girlfriend, so...shit out of luck going once...twice...sold and totally forgotten.

Which was good for him because soon enough he was parking a little down the street from Normani's home. It shouldn't have been a surprise that after only thirty minutes of her Arabian Nights themed beach party that the party was already all over social media with people posting pics of themselves with Hijabs (which a few of the Muslim and Arabic students had been privy to not doing because of reasons), henna tattoos, hookah vapors all around them, and going on and on about how great the party was. Hell, he could hear the music from where he was helping Honey out of the car. If Normani never made it in the fashion industry, as Chad had told her several times over, she could easily go into event planning because she never held back with a party. Plus, she had chosen a great venue considering there was ample space between her home and others, with her only being connected to the nearby few through the sandy pathway leading from the back of her home down to the beach where a few smaller homes were situated.

Once Honey was out, he linked hands with his girlfriend and made their way closer to the house, bumping fists (totally random, mind you since he could only recognize the guys from a guy classes and definitely not by name) with a few guys and waving at some female classmates. Seeing everyone else go a certain path while others stood around in the beautiful lawn with cups in their hands and conversing, he turned to his girlfriend with a small smile. "Mani's probably still upstairs beautifying herself, or so she would say. Do you want to go wait for her or head down to the beach with everyone else?"

Outfit ⚾ Location: Normani Devereux's Home (Beach) ⚾ Theme Song ⚾ Mood: Entertained



Yes, Christian Hernandez was having a great fucking time. After helping the hostess herself out earlier in the day with overseeing setting up, making sure DJ Morse Code was good and comfortable, and test-tasting (which didn't really need to happen, but both Christian and Mani liked food so this was bound to happen) the absolutely mouth-watering foods, he had really just lounged around at a friend's house in the neighborhood until the party. Lounging meaning that he shot a few hoops, watched a movie or two, and had a bit of a video game session before showering for a second time and getting ready. Which didn't take long since, considering the fact that Christian wasn't a girl that would do the utmost at a beach party, it was a beach party. All he needed was a pair of orange Dan Ward swim shorts, a plain white muscle tee that had been thrown off about fifteen minutes ago, and a pair of Dan Ward sandals that happened to have a bit of wet sand in them at the moment - and Chris was good.

He was even better now that he and a few jocks had successfully thrown a few of the squealing Prep girls (and one of their guys since he wanted to be a prissy little bitch) into the crashing waves, with all of them coming up sputtering and screeching out playful threats. Chris high-tailed it the fuck outta dodge, heading back to one of the lounges so as not to get attacked by pissed off girls who should have remembered that being near water meant actually getting wet. Once there, he smirked at a few girls sitting and gossiping, while pulling out his phone to check on a few of his people.

To: Angel
Don't tell me ur 2 good to come 2 a party now?

To: Chad, Dom, James, Lennox, Sam, Tray
Dudes, this party is 2 live for me 2 c none of u yet

To: Mani
Ur subjects are waiting, ur majesty

Outfit ♕ Location: Normani Devereux's Home (Bedroom) ♕ Theme Song ♕ Mood: Exuberant



While Normani was more than ready to get to her guests and be amidst the fun and just good energy she had noted from the second people started arriving at four, she had returned to her room with Liv and Kat to actually finish getting ready. She had been adamant earlier that every detail be perfect, even with the fire show that would go on at around half past six in the evening. Just when sunset was happening so that it would be dark enough for the show to actually be entertaining and not just random, and her showing off. Not that she wasn't showing off (since come on, she was fucking amazing! Her showing off was equivalent to a lot of girls doing too damn much, just with her...ya know, doing it better) considering when was the last time Normani had even thrown a party at her own home, let along have all the details she had set up? As promised, she had gotten her girls, along with her loyal followers, manicures and pedicures. Hell, to be nice since they had all helped with setting up and being the first to sample the henna artists, she had allowed them all two glasses of her Pernod Ricard Perrier-Jouët champagne during lunch. And Liv and Kat would be the first to tell you - Normani did not serve such an expensive item just willy-nilly.

So, while everyone else was making their way down the dimly-lit pathway from her home to the beach where large lounges were set up with soft cushions, various draperies of jewel tones, and hookah and music lingering in the air around them, Normani was in her bedroom, fully dressed and putting on the final touches to her attire. Her own henna tattoos had been done earlier. "For the record, you can't even say I didn't warn you this time around about what I was wearing," she decided to toss over her shoulder in the direction of her closet's main entrance where Liv and Kat were still in her bedroom, fixing up the last of her eye makeup. The strapless, aqua-colored bandeau bikini she wore emphasized the absolutely flawless figure she held and a semi-sheer sarong was held comfortable on her curvy hips. Her hair had been finished just after her shower earlier and a gold-tone filigree heart crown head piece sat on her head regally, bringing together the hint of Arabian royalty that Normani was going for. Plus, there was something about wedges (or heels, in general) that had her feeling absolutely flawless. She had even changed her bellybutton ring for the occasion.

"You girls ready? Lauren just told me more people are showing up and there is a Long Island Iced Tea that is just screaming my name at this point," she said, walking out of her very spacious closet to confront her very gorgeous best friends.

After accepting the sweet proposal for Homecoming by Trayson, Raquel couldn't help but think that her and Tray were actually going to be a couple. The thought made her smile every single time she thought about it and made her do a little dance, too. Everything was perfectly set up so she couldn't say no to him especially since they also went to lunch afterwards. She hummed to herself while applying a little dab of lip gloss onto her lips then standing up, fully dressed and reviewing herself over in the mirror.

"Hey. We're going to be..." Tyler said while barging into Raquel's room and looking at her as she turned around with smile. "How do I look?" She asked towards Tyler, who walked further into the room now and continued to look at her. "You look fabulous, Raquel." Tyler said as she waved her hand at him. "Stop it." She said then looked at his attire. "Of course, we would be wearing matching colors." With a playful eye roll, she grabbed her cell phone and car keys then walked out of her room. Waltzing down the stairs carefully as Tyler trailed her.

"You know, we don't have to go. We can stay in and eat ice cream and watch musicals all night." Tyler said when they reached the final step as she turned to face him. "Everyone's invited right?" Raquel asked as Tyler nodded his head. "Then we're going. I don't care what happens." She said while walking out of her home, locking it but didn't close the door since Tyler wasn't outside yet. He sighed with a little groan as he was next to exit the home, closing the door behind him.

Tyler and Raquel got into her car then drove towards Normani's home, which was located by a beach and where the party was setup at. During the drive, they had one of their conversations about Tyler still being single for his senior year, which was a conversation he really didn't want to have right about now. "Anyways, can we please talk about something else?" Tyler groaned as she looked at him, making one final turn and stopping the car in a nearby parking space. "Well, we're here now. Come on." She unbuckled her seat belt and got out then pulled her cell phone out, texting Trayson.

To: ♥Tray♥
From: Raquel
Just arrived at the party. Where are you?


She sent the message then grabbed Tyler's arm as they both walked towards the party. Raquel's body was adorned with a light pink bikini top and bottom, though had a silk wrap to cover up the lower half of her body. She had various bracelets around her wrists and a necklace around her neck - Even a fake belly button piercing. From her fingers all the way up to the middle of her right arm was her henna tattoos, done perfectly by herself.

Her and Tyler, who was dressed in nothing more than a white muscle shirt with light pink, beach shorts and sandals with sunglasses on the top of his head and a silver Rolex to adorn his wrist, made their presence felt as soon as they neared themselves towards everybody. Raquel was waving and smiling then they both went over to the bar. "Two Long Island Iced Teas, please." Raquel asked, scanning the party for Tray.

“Greg, I can’t thank you enough for this.” Living with a brother who had a severe disability was not easy. Especially when Tray did it all on his own, while still in high school, and working a full time job. If it wasn’t for Greg, Tray would still be out on the streets barely getting by – or worse, not getting by at all. Greg came into Tray’s life just when it seems there was little left of life for him and his brother. He was the rescue that Tray and Jamie were waiting for from their father than never came. Instead, Greg was the one to pick the boys up off the streets and get them back on their feet.

“Tray, I’ve told you man, it’s my pleasure. I want you to live a normal life. Now get out of here.” Tray pulled his apron off his waist and tossed it towards Greg with a smile on his face. “His meds are on the top shelf over the sink!” Tray yelled out as he ran towards the door, rushing to get home and change. Greg smiled and chuckled to himself as the teenager went flying past entering customers. “These boys are going to drive me into early retirement.” He said under his breath with a shake of the head and a laugh.

Tray jumped into his old Jeep and quickly drove home to change. As soon as he reached his apartment door his phone went off with a text. The name that appeared on his phone brought a smile to his face. He unlocked his apartment door as he opened his text from Raquel. He texted as quickly as he got dressed in a simple outfit consisting of a black tank top, khaki shorts and white canvas sneakers. While getting dressed he texted Raq back.
To: Raq ♥
Hey you (: I’m on my way babe. Be there soon


Just as quickly as Tray was home, he was at Mani’s. He was rushing to get everywhere because he hated missing out on things. He was invited, so why not enjoy himself right? He parked his jeep the first place he could and made his way into Mani’s house. His jaw was dropped from the moment he drove onto the property. It certainly wasn’t anything like his little 2 bedroom apartment. Tray pulled himself together – he was an A-Lister, he had to at least present himself as one. The rest of the school didn’t need to know he was broke and living off minimum wage. Tray found the rest of the party and looked for Raquel and Tyler, who he knew would be glued to each other. While he looked for Raq, he ran into Sam and some of the other guys.

“Hey guys, how’s it going?” He made conversation with the guys on his team and the guys he was supposed to be friends with. This was the place to do it, and if he came to this party to just sit in a corner and talk to Raquel, the guys would never let him hear the end of it. Tray, however, wanted nothing more than to just spend time with his close friends. He didn’t care for being friends with everyone, much less did he care about being friends with guys who weren’t really his friends. He knew that all these people put on a show to others. No one really liked anyone in high school, all this shit was just an act and Tray hated that. Tray was a blunt person, he preferred to be real with everyone, regardless of what the truth was.

Lennox tried on several outfits before finally picking one that he liked. He drove across town to Mani’s house in his car and arrived at the party excited to get started. He noticed a few texts on his phone from some of the guys. One from Sam, one from Chris, and one from Kat. He smiled as he replied to all the texts letting them know that he arrived.

Walking into the party, the first thing Knox did was order himself a shot. He downed it between breaths and exhaled sharply. “It’s gonna be a good night!” He yelled out, pounding the shot glass down on the counter and thanking the bartender. Knox walked further into the party searching for his friends. He walked until he saw a large group of guys standing around talking and noticed Tray in the midst of the group. Why the hell does this guy always have to stick himself where he doesn’t fucking belong.
The thought came to Knox clear as day and he rolled his eyes in annoyance. He sent out two texts to two of his friends.

To: Kat
Where are you? I got something for you

To: Tay
Where are you man? This party’s a bust without you


Lennox went on with looking for his friends when he found Kat. He walked up behind her without her noticing and put his arm around her shoulder. “Hey beautiful. Didja get my text?” Before Kat could respond, Lennox was already moving on with his next thought. Lennox had an idea. Knowing that Tray was scum of the earth and that he was chasing after Raquel, who Knox used to date, he wanted to make sure Tray’s life was hell. It wasn’t so much that Lennox still wanted Raquel, he just didn’t want Tray of all people to have what used to be his. Lennox was acting like a toddler, taking away something he didn’t even want from someone, just so no one else could have it. He pulled Kat along with him as he walked in Tray’s direction. “Doesn’t matter. See that guy over there?” Lennox said pointing to Tray. “I just overheard him saying that he thought you were cute. And I know you’re doing some weird thing in your life where you’re, like, not dating or whatever, but maybe you should give him a try.” Lennox smiled devilishly at Kat. He didn’t know if she knew if it was true but Knox was a pretty good liar and would have been able to pull himself out of the situation had it gotten awkward. He gave a gentle push to Kat in Tray’s direction and winked at her. “Go get ‘em tiger.” Lennox smiled and walked away before Kat could say anything.

Lennox made his way around the party, talking to random people when he found Olivia hanging out with some her girls. He walked over to them and casually entered the conversation. “Ladies,” He smiled. “Liv, do you mind if I talk to you for a second in private.” He wanted to pull Olivia away from the rest of the girls so that he can talk to her about the ridiculous decision she was making with Jamison. He wanted a chance to talk her into going with him and didn’t want her friends around to influence her decision.

He held onto Olivia’s hands gently and smiled at her warmly. “Listen, I know you told James you’d go to homecoming with him as friends, but let’s be honest with each other here for a minute. I like you and I get the feeling we could have a great time together. So, what do you say? Go to the dance with me. I’ll find James someone else to go with.”

"Good point," Sam nodded when Angelina explained that they couldn't just do it right there. "I guess I can wait a few hours until the sun goes down and the darkness gives us some much needed privacy," he whispered, tightening his grip on her waist. He still had his whiskey in his hand, so he waited while she ordered her drink, but couldn't help but to chuckle when he heard her order. "There we go, getting the mood ready," he grinned at the drink's moniker, "Sex on the Beach". He was going to suggest that they go over to one of the lounges, like the one he had been in with Chris, but was interrupted by Trayson and a few jocks coming over, followed by Katherine, and then Raquel and Tyler. "Kitty Kat over here is right, Garrison," he started, placing his whiskey down on the bar to nudge Trayson closer to the model. His other hand was still wrapped around Angelina, and putting down the whiskey was definitely a better option than releasing her. He leaned closer to Tray, muttering "One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor," with a sly wink. "You guys should see who can take four tequila shots the fastest. You think you can beat him, Kat?" Sam was a master at pushing people into things that they didn't want to do, but he wasn't even working his manipulative charm tonight. If anything, he felt like he was helping Trayson by orchestrating the first steps to getting Katherine naked for him. He'd give his "friend of the year" award a week to reach him in the mail.

When Raquel and Tyler walked over, Sam recalled that Raquel was the girl that hung around Trayson frequently. He was sure he had heard something about some homecoming proposal involving the two too, but wasn't sure. Katherine was definitely going to be a better score for him over Raquel. A Royal verse a Virtuoso was going to end with Kat winning without a doubt. Well, that would have been the case if Tray was a normal guy, at least. Sam didn't know anything really about Tray's past, but he did know that sometimes, the guy seemed like a stick in the mud. This was just one more reason for why he should be thanking Sam for giving him the push he clearly needed to steer him in the better direction, towards the better girl for him. "Raquel, you should join in with them. They're seeing who can take four tequila shots the fastest. The prize is the spot next to Tray in bed tonight, and it looks like Kat's taking the lead," he said, nodding towards the girl who was ordering shots at the bar.

Angel was used to him being this way, but with a girl like her on his arm, he didn't need to waste his time getting under other people's skin. "Should we head over to one of the lounges? I'm still curious about what you were doing all night yesterday, and I've got all night to hear your explanation."

It’s not that Tray had a hard time getting along with the other Royals or Jocks, it’s more the matter of fact that Tray simply wasn’t like the rest of them. Of course, it made others think that he thought of himself as better than them or that he was a stick in the mud but it wasn’t his intention. The truth of the matter was that Tray simply didn’t feel as though he belonged with these people. Not that he was out of their league, but that they were out of his league. So when it came to the party, one of the biggest reasons why he was there in the first place was because the entire school was invited so if he were the only person to not appear, it would have given him a bad name, which would have caused a little bit of a ruckus between the social groups. The last thing Tray wanted was to be at the root of any drama.

However, it seemed as though drama was just one thing he couldn’t seem to avoid. Tray wouldn’t have said it aloud, but he considers himself to be a good looking guy. As do many of the girls at school. He’s too shy to make a move on anyone and the fact that Raquel liked him and went for him in the first place was a tad shocking to him, but he appreciated her efforts because now things are working to his advantage. Although, when Katherine approached him and the others he was standing around with, Trayson was taken aback a little. He wasn’t quite sure how to react in a way that wouldn’t jeopardize his newfound relationship with Raquel and wouldn’t insult Katherine all in one fell swoop. He was flattered that there was an attraction drawn towards him all of a sudden but Tray wasn’t sure how to react with the newfound glory.

When the talk of shots came, Tray immediately felt uncomfortable. He didn’t drink, he didn’t smoke, he didn’t dabble in any kind of drugs ever. He wasn’t even entirely sure he liked the taste of alcohol. ”Oh, no thanks.” Tray kindly declined. ”I actually don’t drink.” But the decline didn’t seem to matter as it appeared that no one was truly listening to him speak. They didn’t care if he didn’t drank, they were going to drink and they wanted Tray to join in the fun with them. They weren’t necessarily peer pressuring him, they were just oblivious to his answer if it was anything other than ”hell yeah!” or ”one more!” Tray rubbed on the back of his neck, thinking of a way to get out of having to down shots. Not seconds later, Sam was muttering ”one tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor” in his ear. An uncomfortable chuckle came from Tray as he turned to see Raquel joining the group. She clung to his arm and he thought this would be enough to get him away from the shots, but when he turned to see the girl ordering shots, he wasn’t quite sure. Then came Sam’s comment which sent him into a deep red blush. ”The prize is the spot next to Tray in bed tonight, and it looks like Kat’s taking the lead.” Tray wasn’t quite sure how to respond other than turning bright red. He wasn’t going to doubt that he thought Katherine was cute, but he and Raquel were a thing now. He was committed to her and he wasn’t going to break that. Tray was getting more and more uncomfortable as time went by. “Maybe one shot wouldn’t hurt.” He said quietly, darting looks from Raquel to Sam to Kat. He gently smiled at Katherine, unaware that it made him seem as though he was flirting with her. He took a step towards her, reaching for a shot, then looked back to invite Raquel and Tyler. ”Well? You guys comin’?” Tray took a shot from Katherine and winked at her before putting the glass to his lips and cocking his head back so the liquid would make its way down quicker and easier. He shook his head and took a deep inhale when he pulled the shot glass away from his lips. “Holy shit!” He caught himself in a coughing fit for a few seconds after his first ever shot, which was only slightly embarrassing to say as a high school senior. He took a deep breath and chuckled a little. He caught eye contact with Kat, which caused him to start laughing. Tray smiled at Katherine, momentarily forgetting that he wasn’t alone with her.

A smirk came to Lennox as quickly as it disappeared. He knew that at this moment he had ‘won.’ Perhaps it was not in the way he necessarily wanted, but he wanted Olivia all to himself. He wanted her to like him as much as he liked her, but he knew that in the end it was all a matter of time. Maybe she would never like him as much as he liked her, and he came into contact with the reality of that thought but he knew that with time, Olivia would warm up to him and perhaps they could be closer in one way or another. He was close with her best friend, as she was also his best friend, so he figured why could he not be as close to Liv as he was with Kat? To him, there was little difference in their relationships. The only difference was the romantic attraction quite honestly. Lennox allowed for a genuine smile to spread across his lips, bringing them ear to ear. He pulled her hands closer to him but separated them to wrap around his shoulder. Lennox wrapped his arms around Olivia’s waist and lightly picked her up and twirled her before setting her down and kissing her forehead. He gently held onto her cheeks as he looked her deep in her beautiful blue-green eyes. “Olivia Ellison, you’ve just made me the happiest guy on earth.” He let go of her cheeks and pulled her hand back into his. He put her palm against his chest and caressed it with his hands. “And I promise you, I will find James someone just as lovely as you to go to the dance with him.” He smiled kindly on the outside, but inside was a menacing smirk.

By the time that the shots were on the bar top, Sam and Angel were walking away, and Tray and a few other A-list guys were the only ones left. Raquel was approaching, but Katherine didn't have any sort of relationship with her to where her presence would be noteworthy. That was what she assumed, at least, since she didn't know that she and Tray were friends, or actually more than friends until two of the shots were finished off and she was waiting for Tray to take at least one of the two remaining ones. And then Raquel appeared, and latched on to Tray like he was her boyfriend or something. It had Kat's eyes narrowing for just a second. Maybe it was all of the alcohol from earlier, but it didn't automatically click to her that Raquel and Tray were anything. Tray was an A-lister and she was... she was one of those drama weirdos, Katherine thought. At that moment, she couldn't even remember what clique the girl belonged to, but whatever it was, it wasn't one that was good enough for her to be hanging around them. It wasn't even like Trayson was the most coveted boy in the A-list group, and he had never really caught Katherine's eye before, but tonight she was definitely appreciating that sharp jawline as she looked him over.

Sam probably would have been her first pick of the night, but Angel on his hip was a deterrent. Katherine wasn't fluent in this type of stuff, so she wanted something easy to prove to Normani and Olivia that she was capable of being just as boy crazy as they were. Angelina wasn't competition to her in a lot of ways, at least not since her fall from grace, and in reality, they didn't have any real bad blood, but Kat knew that the girl was more well versed in sex than she was, so at least here, Kat felt like she would be fighting a losing battle. Trayson had seemed like an easier target, so Raquel clinging to him was disheartening, and more than that, confusing. Maybe it wasn't just that that put Katherine off. The way that Trayson was clearly a novice when it came to shots had her wrinkling her nose. Her own expertise in alcohol was nothing to boast about, considering it wasn't like she knew alcohol well enough to respect her tolerance limit ever... and more than half of the nights when she drank, a good portion of her alcohol ended up being thrown up by midnight. Still, it made her wrinkle her nose. She wasn't looking for some experienced, Christian Grey, but maybe Trayson belonged with the lower level girls like Raquel. At the same time... that jawline... and his cute laugh... and the way their eyes met when he finished the shot... It had Kat smiling and laughing a little on her own.

But then Raquel just had to ruin the moment, trying to join in on the fun, and it brought Kat back to reality. "We weren't talking about anything," she answered, a bit coldly as she looked the girl up and down. "Nothing that you should be worried about, at least." With the unwelcoming comments out, she decided that she was over this conversation and Tray (for now, at least). Her exit from the group would have seemed more graceful had the alcohol not taken her surprise, and she not had to clutch onto one of the guys a few feet away as she nearly lost her balance. She adjusted herself to the fuzziness and the way that the ground felt like it was tilting back and forth a little. It was a feeling she disliked, but one she knew well enough to be functional during... at least so long as she didn't take any more shots for the night.

If she had seen Normani on the other side of the bar, she would have flocked to her first, but she didn't, and as she slowly walked away from the bar, she found Olivia and Lennox and headed in their direction. "Excuse me, Lennox Atwood! That ugly bitch Raquel is clearly obsessed, like stalker level obsessed with that boy you said thought I was cute, so I want Sam for tonight. Liv, tell Mani that Angel said something bad about her so she kicks her out. She's gonna get in my way."

She could literally feel the tension in the air as she came up and grabbed Tray's hand. The looks from the people surrounding let her know that she was quite unwanted around this group of people but she didn't care at this point. Trayson was going to be hers and hers alone and she damn sure wanted the other Royal bitches to know it. Of course, she wasn't going to fight over a guy, if anyone else want him, they can have him. Raquel looked at Tyler with scrunched up look as he let out a slight chuckle. They were clearly unwanted around this type of environment.

Hearing Sam talk about everyone taking shots and then having him ask her to join, she shook her head. Raquel wasn't much of a drinker, let alone and party goer as she is now. Her eyes cut towards Sam as she smiled sweetly then uttered. "No, thanks. I hardly drink." She said then looked at Tray just as he commented one drink couldn't hurt. Raquel laughed a little then looked at Katherine as she spoke a bit coldly to her.

"Well, no need to be rude, Madam." Tyler said while stepping in front of Raquel and defending her. "We just came over to simply speak with Trayson and try to mingle around with the others." He continued just as she walked away and nearly falling over. "Hmph. Serves her right." Tyler muttered just as Tray called them over to the bar. "My hero." Raquel said while leaning up and kissing Tyler on the cheek, again. "Ugh. Her actions were rude. Girl, I hate rude people." He said as he walked alongside with Raquel over to the bar with Trayson.

Once over there, they looked at Tray just as took a shot, cursing afterwards. Raquel would glance occasionally at Katherine then back at Tray. "Hey, you look worried." Tyler whispered towards her as she laughed but it seemed a bit off. "I'm fine. Totally fine." She lied, of course as she took a shot herself and chugged it down, coughing a bit too. "Wow. Didn't expect that." She said while looking at Trayson then back in the direction of Katherine.

"Uhm, we should go, Tyler." Raquel said a bit softly towards him as he nodded his head and without hesitation, got up and place his sunglasses over his eyes. "Yeah, we should." He commented as she looked at Tray with a smile. "You can stay if you want but obviously, we're not wanted here. See you later?" She said as she waited for a reply. When Tray was to reply, she'd link her arm with Tyler's as they walked off from the bar and the beach, going back towards her car. "Musicals and Ice Cream?" Tyler questioned. "On the double." She remarked while looking back down at the party from where they were standing, a light breeze would blow a few locks of hair in her face before she turned heel and continued on walking away.

"No need to worry yourself about that, Raquel. Trayson likes you, okay? Besides, he's taking a Virtuoso to Homecoming not some Royal. Shouldn't that let you know anything?" Tyler tried to talk some sense into her but she just shook her head and got inside of her car, fixing to close the door but Tyler grabbed a hold of it. "Raquel. Don't worry." She nodded her head but her face told the story. Tyler sighed and raised a hand up to rubbed his temple. "What a day." He muttered while getting into the vehicle now and buckling up his seat belt. Raquel cranked up her car but waited a few before driving off.

Tray wasn’t very sure of what to do at the moment. He had wanted to let loose and hang out – he wanted to be the person everyone thought he couldn’t be but he knew that if he didn’t go after Raquel as she was leaving he’d lose her. Well, that’s not entirely true. He didn’t know that. He had assumed that if he let her go, she wouldn’t be quite the same girl with him anymore. Tray’s only problem at this point was being a lightweight. That one shot hit him in just the right place and having never had a drop of alcohol before was affecting him in a different way right now. He knew what the right thing to do was but he wasn’t really sure if he was capable of doing it at this point. All he could think about was taking another shot. His judgement was clouded and slowly, Tray was turning into the kind of guy all of his other friends were. He could hear behind him some of the Lacrosse guys chanting, “Shot! Shot! Shot! Shot!” but he could see ahead of him Raquel walking away. She and Tyler walked away from the house together. Tray knew he would never hear the end of it if he didn’t go after her, so he did. He ran after Raquel and Tyler but all he could catch up with was the exhaust fumes her car had left behind. “Shit.” Tray kicked his heel down and ran his hand through his hair as though a desperate movement as such would bring her back to the party. He took his phone out to text her but just as he got it unlocked one of his teammates rushed over to him and pulled him back towards the party.

He downed shot after shot before realizing that he was about 4 or 5 shots in. For a lightweight, he was doing pretty well for himself. Surprisingly, he could still stand. Which was more than could be said of some his buddies. Tray was in the party mood now. His mind was no longer racing, it was no longer pounding at the inside of skull, the voices that drove him crazy with wild thoughts no longer had a voice inside of his head. He had found a new outlet, it wasn't a healthy one but this was a feeling Tray wanted back. This was a feeling Tray didn't want to escape him. As Tray stumbled his way through crowds of people he found one person that he wanted the attention of. Something had come over Tray that turned him into a different person. He wasn't the sweet kid he normally was, he had gone blank in the eyes and there seemed to be no more soul left in him. He stumbled his way over to Katherine, Lennox, and Olivia. They stood together in as little a circle three people could make. Katherine," He spoke, grabbing the attention of the others. "Hey, listen. I think you're cute and I'm a little drunk so I have more courage to say this than I normally would but do you want to go dance with me over there?" He said, pointing behind him to where the DJ was. He grinned warmly at her, but inside there was a lustful feeling.
