HDH #21

Okay; by now you know the drill:)  For the links to the other participants, go here:)

For this week's hook, thought I'd post another Back To School snippet.  Enjoy:)

Set up:  Gretchen McLaren arrives back at Arbor U and after checking in and dumping her stuff in her room, she introduces her boyfriend to her friends Caitlyn McCarty and Keri Patterson.  In this scene, she and Joe are back in her room to unpack.

“Why was their room different? You have three roommates, but those two are by

“Our resident assistant decided to stay in the same room she had last year, so Caty and Keri have the smaller, private room.” Gretchen explained while she hung up her clothes.

“Do all the dorms have rooms like this?” Joe relaxed on the bare mattress of the lower bunk bed.

“This dormitory is the only one with private bathrooms. Emery Hall was one of the first
ones built, and it's still the only all-girls dorm. All the others are coed and have community

“Who are your other roommates?”

“Let's see...” Gretchen consulted a slip of paper she pulled out of her backpack. “Lynne
Harcourt and Susan Best. They’re freshmen.” She opened one of the many boxes. “Stephanie Ridgeman is my other one. She's not going to be here until tomorrow.”

I'm off to Indianapolis, for a doctor's appointment.  Come back tomorrow for some exciting news!

Thank you all! I based this on my 1st dorm room. Yes, I had three roommates, but we also had the private bath:) When I transferred to the larger university, it was a shock to come out of the community bathroom, dressed only in my robe, and have 3 boys walk past me! Took me a month to get used to it.
