"Miss Thropp." No response. "Miss Thropp are you listening?"
Elphaba looked up. "Huh?"
"Can you tell me the names of the three Vinkun tribes?"
"Scrow, Yunatama, Arjiki", stated Elphie.
Professor Nikidik nodded. "And who, in your opinion, is the strongest? And why?"
She thought about it before she answered. "The Arjiki tribe is the strongest. Their soldiers are well trained and the royal family is well educated."
Fiyero turned in his seat to look at her. She blushed furiously and hid her face in her hands. Glinda leaned toward Elphaba."Elphie, are you alright?" Concern laced her voice.
"I'm not feeling well...just a little headache", she lied.
"Are you sure?"
"I'm sure...I just need a little rest." She smiled slightly. Glinda smiled back knowingly.
Glinda and Elphaba proceeded out of the lecture hall towards their room, as always, arguing the entire way.
"But Elphie", Glinda paused thinking how to phrase her question without her emerald roomie storming away from her, "surely you have a deep dark secret you just want to get out into the open." Glinda shrugged innocently knowing her green roommate's thought.
"Actually Glinda, I do", Elphie said.
"You do? Well tell then?", Glinda said, shocked that her roomie might cooperate for once.
"Here goes" said Elphie, "I DON'T KEEP SECRETS!" Elphie started yelling. Glinda sighed, this seems like it's going to be a long day.
Back in the dorms, while Elphaba and Glinda were sitting on their own respective beds, Glinda attempted to break the silence. "Umm Elphie", Glinda stammered, wanting to approach her dark roomie once again, "You know, about before, the secret thing…I know..." Glinda drew her pale legs up to her chest, moving from her comfortable crossed-leg sitting position into an awkward pose. Elphaba looked over her owl rimmed glasses at the nervous blonde. She did not want to approach this topic.
"Yes, I do recall", said Elphie going back to absorbing herself in a musty old book. Glinda thought about pouting and complaining but thought better of it. "Maybe", she thought, " just maybe, I could fix Elphie and Fiyero up!" Glinda unfolded herself and climbed under her pink sheets. Pulling the covers up to her chin she laid her blonde head on her pillow. Sighing happily she dreamt and schemed the perfect way to set her Elphie and Fiyero up.
