A Fresh Start (Closed, Thane/Andrea) Empty A Fresh Start (Closed, Thane/Andrea)

Post by Descendants September 21st 2022, 12:04 pm

The searing sun beat down on the blacktop of the college campus, the meager shade provided by the trees lining the sidewalk doing little to block out the heat. The smell of hot asphalt, street vendors, and academia did little to improve the atmosphere, leading to quite a few grumpy co-eds on this, the first day back from summer break. A momentous day, for some more than others, made even more so by the Fresh Feast, a brilliantly named party for those joining this year at UCLA. The brain-child of the self-proclaimed “King” of the school, Thanatos Cirillo, it was advertised as a barbeque/social event meant to integrate freshman into the college environment (bankrolled by the Cirillo family, of course).

Of course, like everything he does, Thane had an ulterior motive; several, in this case.

First, it was the perfect time to introduce some of the younger girls, those who grew up in sheltered environments, about the … shadier aspects of college life. After all, it wasn’t all meet-cutes and Starbucks, physics lectures and cheerleading tryouts. This was the real world, two syllables a lot of young adults simply weren’t prepared to embrace. While all genders absolutely can be slapped in the face by reality, it tended to affect young woman at a disproportionate rate. And so Thane took it upon himself to educate them to the best of his knowledge. Of course, this being a man who views every interaction as a chess game, it’s never so simple as a lecture.

It’s a wonder what you can get a man to do with the promise of money.

Second, and tertiarily, it was the perfect time to do the inverse as well; that is, sniff out those agents of life that insisted on acting as the teaching tool. Some he orchestrated to expel; other’s he hired. Even other’s disappeared without a trace. Oddly enough, these were the ones with clean records, but a past that suggested shady records. Almost all had family in law enforcement and pending court cases for sexual allegations. When questioned, of course, Thane had nothing to do with it … that they could prove.

Quarternarily, it was absolutely a dominance play. Imagine, if you will; first day in a new town, scared, excited, but in that jittery way where your confidence is outweighed by your nervousness. Then in comes a dashing young man, offering food, guidance, support in these first long, frightening steps into adulthood (it doesn’t hurt that he’s intelligent and quite good-looking to boot.) This imaginary stranger serves good food, is humorous, a great conversationalist, and makes you feel comfortable and secure in your new home. You would, of course, feel incredibly endeared to this handsome stranger and be much more willing to do a favor, should he ask for it.

Or give your number, should this hypothetical stranger ask for it.

Needless to say, it was quite a popular concept for all students and, since faculty are invited, staff as well. The way it was arranged, new students would come in for orientation, have a couple hours to orient themselves, then come to what was likely to be the greatest party of the year. Despite the lack of alcohol (which was a total lie, just carefully disguised as such things are) even the real party animals of the school attended. It was almost a social faux paus not to go and liable to get a reputation for being high and mighty.

And here lies the secret fifth motive of this little party.

See, Thane liked a challenge, and what is more challenging than a self-titled “outsider” who, for some reason or another, would not go to a big, fun, but relatively safe and inviting party when no other responsibilities exist to complicate matters? Such a person likely would have walls like Troy and verbal artillery that would make Sparta jealous … which is exactly what Thane was hoping for. It is no fun fishing for the digits of a happy-go-lucky party girl. The one he really wanted was someone who thought parties was a huge waste of time and wouldn’t go regardless.

As students began to file into the courtyard, the sun beating down on them, his plan began to take perfect shape.
