It’s nearly a month into the school year and Alex has yet to really bond with her roommate. She understands that the two of them are basically strangers, but she’s made more progress with the cashier at the dining hall than with Hadley. It’s no secret that Alex is the more vivacious of the two, and that in itself made the first week interesting enough. Where Alex had made a point of hitting a few parties to get herself involved in the social scene, it’d seemed that Hadley had hit the books. Despite Alex’s attempts to bring Hadley into her social life, she’s usually met with more resistance than she wants to fight. But she’s determined to get Hadley out this one time. There’s a party a few halls over that Alex has been invited to, and she’s going to drag Hadley out kicking and screaming if she has to.
"It’s just one party, come on.” She pleads, sprawled out on her bed with her hands under her chin. “You can’t stay in here forever. Besides, that guy from Warren’s class is going, and you can’t tell me he hasn’t caught your eye a time or two.” That comment earns her a glance from Hadley, and Alex smiles wide despite the exasperation in Hadley’s gaze. “I knew that’d get your attention. He can’t stay single forever you know. Not to mention, this would be a great opportunity to show him what you’re working with.” In a fluid motion, Alex bounds off of her bed and walks towards Hadley’s closet, rummaging a bit before pulling out a top that hangs low on the back. Holding it up, Alex smiles and shakes it gently. “This would be great for the occasion, too.” A noise of protest leaves Hadley’s lips, but Alex can tell she’s starting to get through to her. “Hadley, please? I’ll get you enough ice cream to last you a week.” Sticking her lower lip out slightly, Alex watches as Hadley’s lips twitch up as though she’s trying to hold back a smile.
Finally, Hadley sighs and holds out her hand for the top. Alex squeals and rushes forward, handing Hadley the shirt and clapping her hands together. Hadley fixes her with a glance and shakes her head softly. "If there’s no food, I’m going home."
