FRESHMEN YEAR AT THE DORMITORY:
"He's staring again," Elizabeth whispered to her friend Brittany.
"Taken," Meadow said with disinterest, turning back to her conversation with Katherine.
Edward shook his head when Brittany made a move on him. "You were dating my little brother," he said scathingly.
Tamara smiled. "I missed you, too. I've been so lonely since Brandy got kicked out!"
Tamara hedged, as though she was holding something back, but finally shrugged. "You'll have to talk to him. I'm not getting between you guys." She didn't want to choose between her twin brother or her best friend...
"Well, now I know what you think of me!" Brittany fumed, giving him the dirtiest look.
MEANWHILE, AT THE GREEK HOUSE:
Andrew was startled when he saw her crying. He sat down next to her and attempted to comfort her. "What is it?" he asked. "What's wrong?"
Tamara looked away, "Nothing. I'm fine."
Edward reached over and dried her cheeks with his thumb. "That's not nothing," he told her. "Come on, you can talk to me."
"I just feel so silly! I thought Charles cared about me, but he probably doesn't even remember I exist!" she moaned, burying her face in her hands as a fresh spate of tears welled up.
"No! It was my fault! I drank too much and made a move on him," she told him. "I feel so stupid!"
Edward stroked her hair. "You're not stupid, Tamara." He sighed heavily. "Why do girls always go for the bad boys?" he asked softly. "Nice guys like me seem to always finish last."
Tamara looked up at Edward and put her hand to his cheek. Here he was comforting her as she bawled like a baby. "You are a nice guy," she told him.
When he smiled at her, she felt her stomach flip.
"I know! I'm so glad to be back!" he told her. "I thought I was going to die without you!"
"No, I missed you more, Kitty Cat," he told her.
"Oh gag me!" Mimi exploded, glancing up at them with disgust. "Get a room!"
"Good idea," Teddy said, grabbing Katherine's hand and tugging her to the Woo Hoo Room.
Edward was trying to be polite since Brittany was his sister's best friend.
He gasped with surprise and then took a step back. Plumbbob, he hoped no one saw that! He glanced around the room to find Tamara.
Unfortunately, Tamara didn't hear it. Her confidence took a huge nose-dive. It was happening all over again! Edward was going to move on now that he'd gotten what he'd wanted...
"Let me just make this easy for you," she said angrily. "You're welcome to her!"
Only, it was kind of hard to do that when he did...
"You look really pretty tonight," he told her appreciatively.
Almeric watched her walk away with his heart on his sleeve.
Mimi reached out for him. "No, stay!" she told him, pouting. "I thought we were having fun!"
Warren sighed heavily and leaned back against the bed. "It is fun, but we can only make out for so long before I want.. you know... more..."
Mimi nibbled her lip. She was pretty sure she was going to marry Warren one day. So, did it matter if they woo-hooed before marriage?
"He's always freaking out about his grades," Mimi said with a roll of her eye.
Teddy shrugged. "Should we just leave him here?"
Mimi nodded. "Yeah, he'll be fine. He'll get up off the ground when he's done pouting."
Vanessa watched in horror as Tamara tugged at her friend's hair. "Almeric! Do something!" she said.
Almeric just stared at Vanessa dumbly. She was in her underwear...
PROBATION SUMMER SCHOOL
They were given extra assignments to bring up their grades.
If they messed up again, they would be kicked out of school.
Camryn shot him an irritated look. "What?" she asked him gruffly. He'd broken her heart and done a mexican hat dance on it. She was polite in public because it was required, but she didn't have to be in private.
Camryn winced. Ouch.
Raymond sighed heavily when he saw the pained look cross her face.
Camryn shrugged. "It's water under a bridge," she lied.
Raymond gazed into her eyes and she felt the connection that she used to always feel when he was near. Her breath hitched in her throat as he started to lean forward to kiss her.
"NO!" she said, pushing him away. "I am not going to be your backup romance after Meadow broke up with you!"

*AN: I am not sure what in the world happened between Raymond and Meadow. He went to give her a kiss and she pushed him away and insulted him. I guess their relationship imploded! I can only suppose the stress of being put on academic probation was too much for him! Lol
