Hey people! What is this...my like...15th fic or something? Heh...I REALLY should finish some of my other fics first...oh well!
"Elphie? Can you put down that book and listen to me for one moment?"
"…S-Sorry, what?" Elphaba put down the current novel she had been reading and turned to face her roommate.
"Honestly, Elphaba. I don't know how many times I have to tell you! Fiyero and I are going out to dinner and we won't be back 'till around eleven. OKAY?"
"Yes. Okay. I got it." Elphaba muttered, sticking her nose back between the pages of her book.
"Have fun, don't get drunk, don't die."
Galinda stopped putting on her makeup and stared at her.
"That's hardly reassuring."
Elphaba looked up from her book, letting what Galinda had said sink in.
"…You won't be back until eleven?"
"Yes, Elphie. That's what I said." Galinda said, putting the final touches on her wardrobe.
"Weren't you listening?"
"Yes..." Elphaba answered, the wheels beginning to turn in her head.
Galinda wouldn't be back until eleven. That means…
Suddenly, there was a knock at the door.
"Ooh! That's probably Fifi!" She grabbed her coat and purse off her bed and ran out the door.
"Bye Elphie!" The blonde yelled, slamming the door behind her.
Elphaba walked over to the window of their dorm, watching Fiyero's car pull out and drive away. Once she was sure they were gone, she pulled a box out from under her bed. On the side, was written:
Property of Elphaba Thropp. Open, and I WILL HURT YOU.
Elphaba looked around the dorm, before opening it.
No, I am not telling you Elphie's secret. You have to find that out yourself. ;)
