Raine Collindale
Sounds good to me
Sun Apr 15, 2018 10:03

To say that Raine had never been the biggest fan of school was something of an understatement. She had managed to become somewhat fond of Sonora because of the friends she had there but she still regarded being in school as an unpleasant experience. Being quarantined over the holidays therefore had her feeling pretty mad. She needed a break. The holidays were usually fun. A chance to do family stuff, and let off steam. The didn’t have shows over the vacation, but a lot of the adult members of her family worked corporate gigs - Christmas parties that wanted jugglers or stilt walkers or the like. They didn’t though. Those types were touchy about things like child labour laws, and having minors in an environment that included alcohol. Which meant the kids were usually free to meet friends and get trashed at New Year.

She had been excited to see the sign for Isaac’s party. She doubted it would be as wild as the ones she went to back home but it was at least an excuse to have some fun, and she needed that. She didn’t have much in the way of a Christmas outfit - it was a shame that she didn’t have any of her costumes at school, as a lot of those were very sparkly. She had found red and green clothes though. She had a red crop-top with a cross back that she wore for working out and a pair of green harem pants with sequins around the ankle bands. She had charmed both to glitter. A year or so ago, she would have been self-conscious about the amount of her body that her workout top showed off but she’d learnt that guys tended to like her the less she wore, and she liked guys liking her… She didn’t have much makeup at school but she had borrowed some, giving her eyes a good deal of shimmer and shadow. Her normally rather wild brown hair was straightened.

She headed to the MARS room at seven thirty. Normally she wasn’t exactly punctual, especially for informal things like parties but well… it wasn’t like there was much else to do. Although she felt slightly awkward when she realised that she was the first person there.

“Thanks,” she smiled, taking the cup from Isaac. She knew who he was in that it was a small school and most people knew each other, at least those within two years of themselves, seeing as they’d had classes together at some point. But she didn’t really know him. “Yeah,” she agreed about the quarantine and its suckiness, “It’s cool of you to throw a party. My brother’s coming too. He said he would. Kyte,” she added, although she suspected Isaac knew she was Kyte’s twin because… well, everyone knew everyone.

OOC- This is the style of top Raine is wearing. She is not infected in spite of having had exposure to the virus, just for clarity.
