Hey guys, this is just the first chapter to see how you guys like it. Let me know if you liked it by giving it a review!
"And you're sure you'll be alright on your own?" Sabrina's father asked for the fifth time, making Sabrina's mother roll her eyes at him.
"Sabrina is 19 now; she will be fine on her own. She is a grown woman."
"Thanks mom." She replied, giving her a hug. Turning to her dad, she gave him a reassuring look. "I will be fine. What's the worst that could happen?"
An overly happy blonde practically bounced over to them.
"Welcome to Barden University, here is your official BU rape whistle!" She handed her a whistle on a small chain. "Remember; don't blow it unless it's actually happening!"
"Yeah, what's the worst that could happen?" Her dad asked sarcastically as he gave her a final, bone crushing hug. "If you need anything, call us. Or talk to Benji."
Benji was her best friend in high school, her only friend, in fact.
"What dorm?" The blonde asked when Sabrina was finally able to get rid of her clingy parents.
"Baker Hall, but could you tell me where Edison Hall is as well?"
With the instructions in mind, she set off to place her bags in her own dorm, room 210, Baker Hall. She placed her bags on the bed on the left side of the room, noticing that the right side was already occupied by several suitcases and some DJ equipment. Her roommate was nowhere to be found, so she decided to go see Benji.
She knocked on the door labeled '334' in Edison Hall, and the door opened to reveal a person who was definitely not Benji.
"Hey, the girl's halls are on the other side of campus." He told her, opening the door a little wider.
"Oh, I know. I'm actually here to see Benji?" She questioned.
"You're here to see Benji?" He asked, astounded for some reason.
"Sabrina!" She heard Benji call from behind the unnamed stranger. "You made it!" He embraced her in a large hug, wrapping her up in the black cape he wore.
"Hey Benji, I missed you!" She gave him a kiss on the cheek, which earned her an eyebrow raise from the stranger. Benji and Sabrina had been friends for five years, and were very comfortable around each other. He knew all of her secrets, and she knew all of his. They were used to being rather affectionate towards each other, and people often mistook them as boyfriend/girlfriend.
"Are you two dating?" The stranger asked. It was a fair question, one they were asked very often.
"Oh, no. Sabrina is my best friend ever. Sabrina, this is my roommate Jesse."
"Nice to meet you." She greeted, taking his hand that he offered hers.
"So are you dating anyone?" Jesse asked, still holding her hand.
"No, actually. I've never actually really dated anyone before." She confessed as he allowed her hand to be free. "So, you haven't run for the hills yet after seeing Benji's décor?" She joked, gesturing to the dark half of the room.
"Nope, if he can put up with my movie collection then I can put up with that." Sabrina then noticed the stacks of movies piled onto bookshelves on Jesse's side of the room.
"Wow, that's a lot of movies."
"Hey, did you guys want to go to the activities fair?" Benji changed the subject, looking out the window to the groups of people outside.
"You just want to go see the Treblemakers." Sabrina commented, even though she kind of wanted to as well.
"They have two open spots this year; I can definitely get one of them." Benji was confident in himself, and Sabrina didn't have the heart to tell him that they were more than likely a group of assholes.
"Alright, let's go. Are you coming Jesse?" She asked him, helping Benji remove his cape.
"Sure, if you don't mind."
The trio made it down to the group just in time to see their first song.
"The Treblemakers. The rock stars of a capella, the messiahs of Barden. Well, you know, not including athletes, frat guys or actual cool people." Benji told Jesse.
"Organized nerd singing, this is great." Jesse replied. Sabrina knew that this would hurt Benji's feelings a little bit, but he didn't show it.
"How's your voice?" She changed the subject, challenging him to be better than the Treblemakers.
He gave the two of them a sample, and she had to admit: he was good.
"Woah, nice." Benji said, putting Sabrina's thoughts into words. They stood there, listening to the entire performance. Sabrina kept her eyes on one person, the beat boxer. He was so disinterested in the performance; he never took his eyes or hands off of his cellphone.
When the song finished, the leader went off.
"When you came in and you were like just strumming the guitar and it was like totally off-key, I wanted to choke you!"
"Bumper!" The beat boxer called out, trying to stop the leader's harsh words.
"I wanted to choke you out!" Bumper continued.
"Okay, I'm gonna go introduce myself." Benji decided. "Everybody be cool, it's just a normal day." He took a second to collect himself, before approaching the group. Sabrina and Jesse trailed behind him. "Hi. Hi. Benjamin Applebaum. I saw you guys perform at a Mall of America like three years ago. Totally changed my life. I have not stopped thinking about you since."
'Uh oh' Sabrina thought to herself as Benji came off a bit creepy.
"Thank you." The leader replied, but he didn't truly mean it. This turned Benji's attention to him.
"And, Bumper, huge fan. Your arrangement of Lovin' Spoonful's 'Do You Believe in Magic' inspired me to become a certified illusionist." Benji did a small trick for the group. Sabrina liked it, but the group thought otherwise.
"The smell of your weird is actually affecting my vocal cords so I'm gonna need you to scoot. Skedaddle."
"Hey, don't call him weird!" Sabrina dealt with people calling both her and Benji names every day, and she learned when to stick up for him. This was one of those times.
"Well hello there." Bumper drawled out, dragging his eyes up and down Sabrina, completely making her uncomfortable. "What's your name?"
"As if you care enough to remember it." She spat out, pulling her cardigan closer to herself.
"I'm Bumper, in case you want to know whose name you'll be screaming out tonight." Sabrina didn't have a comeback for this one, thankfully she was saved by both Jesse and the unnamed beat boxer.
"Back off Bumper." Said the beat boxer, pulling on his shoulder.
"Don't talk to her like that." Said Jesse, pulling Sabrina behind him, guarding her with his own body.
Bumper looked between the two people who stood up for her, and Jesse and the beat boxer watched each other.
"Oh, do you two have a little crush? Should I leave for you two to fight over her?" Bumper asked. "Back off Donald." He said, pushing the hand off of his shoulder.
"Come on, Sabrina." Jesse said, pulling her away from the group.
"Oh, so her name's Sabrina?" Bumper called. "Good to know!" Sabrina turned back in time to see him wink at her.
"You want to be a part of their group? Really?" She asked Benji.
"Oh, what about her?" The redheaded Chloe asked her best friend, Aubrey.
"Maybe, let's see if she's interested." They were watching as a dark-haired girl walked by, with two boys by her side.
"Hi, do you have any interest in joining our a capella group?" Chloe asked the girl, supplying a flyer for her to take.
"Me?" She asked, gesturing to herself as she took the paper.
"Yes, you! What's your name?" Aubrey asked.
"Sabrina." She told them, looking at the two boys next to her as if to ask should I?
"Well Sabrina, auditions are next week. We ask that you have Kelly Clarkson's 'Since U Been Gone' prepared. If we like you, then we'll ask for you to join us!"
"What do you say?" Chloe asked, with a desperate look on her face. For some reason, Sabrina couldn't bring herself to say no.
"Uh, sure. I don't mind auditioning. I guess I'll see you there." She smiled, which made Chloe and Aubrey break out in perfectly flawless white smiles themselves.
"Definitely!" Aubrey excitedly called out as she walked away with the two boys.
"See, we're 1/8th of the way there! We can totally do this." Chloe promised, handing out flyers with a new excitement.
Did you guys like it? Not really sure who I want the love interest to be; it's a bit between Jesse and Bumper. What do you guys think? I haven't even introduced Sabrina to Beca yet!
