Student Union. All four were transfer students and will be sharing
a dorm suite next year. This meeting was planned by email when
the room assignments were posted on the dorm website.
This is Phyliss! This is one of her many part-time jobs.
Xia’ was the first to arrive.
Marie saw her sitting there and came over. Marie: Hi, Xia’ right?
I’m Marie. Xia’: Yes, Hi Marie. I guess the others are on their way.
Marie: I’ll take this seat. Xia’ thought Marie looked like fun!
She seemed… as her mother would say-spunky. She had a
great smile. Where are you from?
Bea sashayed in like a model! The two girls turned her
direction. Bea searches their faces as she walked their
way looking for hate. It wasn’t there, just surprise.
Marie had done the southern pageant circuit too long
to let her face give away her smirk. She made her face
blank and smiled. Xia’: Hi! I’m Xia’ and this is Marie.
Bea: Hi, I’m Bea. They both said hello and Xia motion
the seat next to her.
Bea noted that each girl was pretty in very different ways.
She wonders if this was too much beauty for one suite!
Bea: So I guess we are waiting for one more person.
Reecie was the last too arrive. She came from tryouts at
the athletic campus and had to take the bus back to the main
campus. Reecie: Sorry I’m late! She said with a Trinidadian
accent. I had to get the bus after basketball tryouts to get here.
Marie : So you play b-ball. I do too.
Reecie looked at her.
Yes, she was chucky but she had the eye of the tiger
about her. She was not a girl to underestimate!
Reecie: We will have to play
He is hot!
Hi Phyliss! What is the soup of the day?
It is chicken noodle Dan.
Reecie: I think it will be interesting going here!
Xia': Alright let's get to it!
Bea: Well...I went by to see the suite, we will all have
our own room but we share the living room, kitchen and
bathroom. Xia’: They let you in? Bea: Well, not exactly. I
talked this guy at the desk into letting me see the room.
The all laughed.
Xia’: A CIA agent in the making. So
what the size of the rooms and the bathroom.
Bea smiled and looked at the rest of the girls. Reecie would
not take too much bathroom time. She could tell she was a
"minimalist". The other two, like her, would want bathroom
time. Bea: The rooms are a good size. The bathroom isn’t
too bad either but the living room and kitchen seems
Xia’: So who is bringing what?
Reecie could tell that Xia’ was a down to business
kind of girl and she liked that.
Reecie: I am coming from Trinidad, so I’m not
lugging a lot on the plane. I will just bring clothes and
my ipod. I might buy a few things to add to the place.
They stayed about an hour working out some of the
details of their living arrangements!
