Author's Notes: No spoilers. Before episode one. I don't own any of this. It all belongs to Hex!
Cassie walks into the room that will be her home for the next few school years. The room wasn't too bad. Two-twin size beds; two dressers; two closets; and one vanity desk with a mirror. Both beds were empty so it was easy to assume she doesn't have a roommate yet.
She drops her luggage on one of the beds and walks over to the window. It was a rainy, dreary day. Perfect for a new move and a new beginning.
Cassie sighs. This can't be any worse than taking care of her mother. Well, not anymore anyways. Her mother was committed and she was sent here to this boarding school.
She walks over to her bed and starts unpacking.
Within a few minutes the door bursts open and a very rambunctious girl walks in.
"Hi! I'm Thelma and it looks like we're going to be room mates." Thelma drops her bags and reaches her hand out to Cassie's.
Cassie shakes it tentatively. "I'm Cassie." She was a little nervous about the girl. Thelma was dressed in gothic clothes and funky hair. This was going to be an interesting girl.
"Well, it doesn't seem too bad." Thelma shrugs, sticking a lollipop into her mouth.
Cassie pulls her long blonde hair back into a ponytail. She starts pulling out her drawings and art supplies.
"You, an artist? Me too." She walks up next to Cassie and starts looking through her drawings. They were mostly of landscapes and people. "These are nice. Mine are a little bit, how should I say, risqué?" Thelma walks over to her boxes and pulls out some of her drawings.
Cassie looks over there. Thelma was night. They were different. They were of women or were very women oriented. She starts to get the feeling Thelma was a little too into girls.
Thelma notices the look on Cassie's face. "Yes, I know. Women. I like them."
"So you are a…" Cassie pauses, trying to find a polite way of saying it.
"Yes. I'm a lesbian, dyke, rugmuncher. I've heard it all before. Don't worry. I won't come on to you. Unless you want me too." She teases Cassie as she sees the girl start blushing.
Thelma starts rambling on about all kinds of stuff, and Cassie just sits there and smiles. She had never known any lesbians or any girl like Thelma, but she had a feeling they were going to be good friends.
