I hope not.

Felipe was sorted into a decent house, it seemed, and he took a seat proudly at his new table. With an older student based him, he felt rather pleased with himself, and also rather small. Both of these things were fine by him. It turned out to be a particularly good choice when she also became prefect. All in all, she seemed like a good option of conversation partner if he had to have conversation with anyone. She spoke up nearly as soon as the feast began which was vaguely exhausting, but at least she was talking about something unimportant. He wasn't mentally prepared for a conversation about value systems or something, although this topic was more keenly on his mind with the House sorting having just finished.

"Shrimp," Felipe replied plainly, picking up a platter of camarones rancheros and pushing some of the spicy dish onto his plate. He watched as the girl added hotdogs and peas too her own plate. The latter sounded good but he was pretty sure that was the most disgusting combination of food he'd ever seen in his life. Also who eats hot dogs at a celebratory feast?

"Congratulations," he added, nodding at her prefect badge. "That is quite an honor." He wasn't sure how much nepotism was engrained in Sonoran life, so he was hesitant to comment either on the hard work she must've put in to get there or on the pretty face she flashed instead. He'd heard that Americans particularly liked blondes, but he thought it made her look a bit washed out.

          Felipe raised an eyebrow at Cleo's introduction, and pursed his lips in thought. Except that he did none of that on the outside. Maintaining the stoic expression that his father favored for business... more

              Felipe didn't consider Cleo's pause particularly strange, as he was more than used to people taking each social action only after deliberate thought. He would have almost thought it stranger had she... more
