Layla drifted through her morning class. It wasn't like her to not be paying attention, but her mind kept wandering. She was a bit annoyed that Nathaniel had decided to go without her, but not really surprised.

"Alright, don't forget, Thursday is a normal class so bring your books with you. Now shoo." Their teacher said jovially.

Thankfully, their teacher didn't seem to notice that Layla hadn't been paying that much attention in class. It was just the syllabus and all, but still. It just wasn't like her to be this zoned out. She glanced at her watch and saw she had an hour before she needed to be at her next class.

She sat down on a nearby bench, pulled out her phone and started tapping out a text message.

Nathan >> The hell man, I asked you to wait for me. I wanted to go too.

After seeing the little message sent prompt, she slipped the phone back into her pocket and hoisted her bag onto her shoulder. Since she had time to kill, she should probably get the papers for SigMu ready.

She headed over to the administration office (thankfully it was close by) and picked up the papers. Afterwards, she whipped out her laptop and mass messaged the current members of the Velvet room.

-----

It's Layla. I was wondering if I could talk to you guys later today. Message me back when you've got the chance.

Their target was in sight. The vulnerable girl was sprawled across her bed on her stomach. There was drool seeping out of her mouth and onto her red pillow. Snickers were heard as a group of 3 boys made their way out of the connecting bathroom.

"Oh my god!" the blonde girl who sat at her desk gasped as she saw the intruders.

"Shhh," Bryant shushed the other girl and pointed at the still sleeping Amber. "You'll wake her up."

That's when the blond finally noticed the bucket of water being carried by Sean and the looks of delight upon the boy's faces as the surrounded Amber's bed.

"You better not," the girl growled, venom and disbelief lacing in her voice.

"Oh... yes... yes we are," Bryant said once again in a whisper.

If Amber heard the voices, the nly indication was a slight murmur and a turning of her head to the other side. She snoozed on. Bryant gave the cue and...

SPLASH!

The contents of the bucket emptied itself all over Amber and her bed. Immediately she jolted up, stumbling out of the bed. A look of absolute terror washed over her. She gaped like a fish but then began to register the laughing forms of her 3 hall mates and the yelling of her room mate, Jess.

"Oh MY GOD OH MY GOD!" Jess was screaming.

Amber continued to gape trying to piece together everything that happened. There was that dream that was so erie and yet so real, then there was water and it was like the crash but... but there was a bucket in their hands and she was dripping wet--

Amber rubbed her eyes.

"Dudes... what the Frick?" were the first words out of the stunned girls mouth.

"So she speaks," Bryant chortled.

"Morning sunshine," the 3rd boy said as he high fived Sean.

"What on earth guys!?" Amber's room mate cried out. "This is so immature! How the hell did you get in here!?"

"Settle down it was a joke," the guys laughed.

"Yeah, it didn't even get on your stuff," Amber reasoned. "If anything I'm the one who should be mad." She glanced at her clock radio. "I lost an hour sleep because of them."

The room mate was shaking, she was very furious, but without another word she stormed out of the room leaving Amber and the guys laughing. Sean and the 3rd guy collapsed onto Jess's bed and Amber grabbed a towel and wiped her face and hair.

"She's pissed," Bryant noted.

"Yeah and whose fault is that?" deadpanned Amber. "What the hell were you guys thinking?"

"We wanted to see the look on your face and Sherry left her room open for easy access," Sean explained.

Amber frowned and flung the towel onto her desk chair and began yanking at the sheets.

"I guess it'll be too much to ask if I wanted you guys to help clean this up, right?"

"Bryant will help. Sean and I have class. Later," the 3rd guy and Sean left out the room door.

Luckily Bryant did help out though. He even spotted her a dollar in quarters to do her sheets. By the time she was coming back up to her room it was time for her 11 o'clock class but she didn't even have breakfast.

"This sucks," she frowned. She was still in basketball shorts and the red shirt she changed into after getting wet. She didn't have time to get ready and she suddenly felt really really tired. She crawled onto her freshly made bed and sprawled out again and let sleep over take her. She missed the first day of Geology lecture.

---

When Amber woke up she was still alone in the room, though she could tell her room mate had come back at some point because her laptop was shut and an open mountain dew bottle rested beside it.

Amber yawned, sat up and looked at her clock. It was a little after one. She had about two hours until Intro to Computer Science. Being an undecided freshman sucked. She had no interesting classes.

As she lay there all alone in her bed she found her mind begin to wonder. Somehow it was brought back to the dream she was rudely awakened from earlier that day. Like most dreams it was fading as time passed, but this dream also was nagging at her. It was like a puzzle and she wish she could remember all of the pieces.

You are I, and I art thou...

Somehow those words echoed in her mind and brought about a strange throb in her heart. Even if it were a gross misinterpretation she couldn't control the course of her mind. Immediately she turned her head into her pillow, stifling the bitter sob that escaped from her throat.

"Henry..."

-----

She finally went to the bathroom to freshen up and get dressed in jeans and a white and blue button up. She then went to check her computer. She received emails from professors of the syllabus. She made note to print that in the computer lab later. Then she also checked the Connect U, adding Keith while she was thinking about it. That's when she also saw the message in her inbox.

"It's Layla. I was wondering if I could talk to you guys later today. Message me back when you've got the chance."

Amber typed up a reply:

"Hey Layla. I thought we weren't meeting until Thursday but I don't really have anything to do anyway. But I have class at 3. What time were you looking at?"

She sent it and then saw it was 2:40. She got her folder, put on her hat and shades, and went to computer science.

"Wahh!" Rebecca yelled out loud, jolting up into a seated position in her bed. She had just had a dream that really had bothered her. Butterflies, some old theater...an old man...she sat there for a while, trying to think of anything else, but after a few minutes she gave up.

She got up and checked the clock. It was almost time for her first class. She got up and changed, and checked her email. She had some various emails from professors. She decided to check Connect U, which she saw a message from Layla:

"It's Layla. I was wondering if I could talk to you guys later today. Message me back when you've got the chance."

In reply, Rebecca wrote, "Sure, my last class finishes at 4pm. I can go anytime after that."

After that, she closed her laptop and went to her first class, English composition.

8/19 Tue - Afternoon

--

Layla Tossed her bag onto the floor by her bed and flopped on her bed. She knew this would happen. It was approaching even over the summer, and now the nail was ready to be hammered in. If she couldn't get this to work, then SigMu would be out of luck.

She whipped out her phone and texted Nathan. She never got a reply about not taking her along, but she needed him to answer this time.

Nathan >> I called for a meeting for everyone that joined the Velvet room, see if you can make plans to meet us. I was hoping we could all grab dinner, less threatening atmosphere and all.

She sent the message and sighed as she put her phone down on her night stand. She pulled out her laptop and sent a message everyone else.

--

I was hoping we could all go and grab dinner. I know I said the meeting was on Thursday, but this is more impromptu, and there's a few things I needed to clear up before then.

--

She looked at the clock -- 3pm. She had some time to do homework before she needed to do other things.

When Amber finally got out of class she was in annoyed. That teacher surely had a lot of nerve to teach the entire day! When she got back to her room she was absolutely ready for dinner having already skipped lunch and dinner.

Entering her room she found her room mate and a girl with a pigtail sitting on the bed talking with some rock music playing through the room. She didn't bother saying hi as she made her way to the desk to get her school ID since she had left it on accident. She was searching for it but couldn't find it.

"Jess, have you seen my ID?" she asked, ducking to look under the table.

"No," the girl replied.

Amber eventually found it in the pants she wore the previous day. She was about to leave again when she checked the computer and saw Layla's invitation. Amber let out a groan. She was hungry now. She hoped dinner would be soon.

"Ok I don't mind dinner. What time?"

Right when she pressed "submit" the bathroom door swung open and a guy with a monster mask jumped out, sending Jess and her guest into hysterics.

"Bryant get the hell out," Amber said, getting up and pushing him back into the bathroom.

After a slow day of class, Keith was now checking websites and such on his laptop. He went on Connect U and added Amber, then he noticed some messages Layla had sent.

"It's Layla. I was wondering if I could talk to you guys later today. Message me back when you've got the chance."

Then he opened the second message.

"I was hoping we could all go and grab dinner. I know I said the meeting was on Thursday, but this is more impromptu, and there's a few things I needed to clear up before then."

He rubbed his chin a bit... He needed to shave. Or he could grow a goatee. Anyways he reached into his pocket and flipped open his cell- It was around 3pm. He sent a message to Layla.

"Sure. What time?"

He pressed send, then decided to look around more on Connect U for any news on clubs that were accepting members but none didn't really peak his interest.... Except for one thing.

Looking for Graphic Designers and Editors for the Altisa Student Magazine!
Please message Leon Kok if you are interested in helping spread news about our wonderful academy!

Keith rose a brow, then decided to message Leon.

Once he finished up, he turned off his laptop and plugged in the charger. He slipped out of his room with his drawing supplies in hand and headphones on. He never did finish sketching Wester yesterday.

After some time, he was back at the spot he was at yesterday. Today he started a new sketch of the building though. He planned on returning to the dorm in about an hour.

8/19 Tue - Evening

" Sir, do you need anything else? " The waitress chimed in as she appeared at Nathaniel's side.

" Ah, yes. Please escort my companions when they arrive. " Nathaniel requested, as he thumbed through several text messages on the phone, paying little attention to the waitress.

" Of course sir. " The waitress cheerfully complied, unmindful of Nathaniel's cold demeanor as she exited the Trattoria's VIP room, positioning herself at the restaurant's entrance.

The Tratorria prided itself on the quality of their traditional Italian food that no other restaurant in the city could match. It was quite the establishment, visited by quite a number of Altisa's students during the evening, when the restaurant was at it's liveliest. Of course, there were only a select few that could afford certain privileges, like access to the restaurant's VIP room, among other things.

The restaurant itself seemed to look the part in tradition as well, the floors, walls and ceilings possessing a lush wooden finish. Square tables laid with full sets of silverware dotted the most part of the restaurant, with a bar on one end to serve those who required more than a full stomach.

The hell man, I asked you to wait for me. I wanted to go too. - Layla

Nathan scoffed upon seeing the previously read message, the fresh memory of the ordeal last night going through his head. Perhaps he should have taken her along after all. He rarely ever wrote a response to his partner though.

Feeling the cut on his arm acting up again, Nathaniel instinctively rubbed the ailing appendage through the long sleeves of his black suit. Pushing up his glasses, the young man started to compose a text message for the club.

To: Velvet Room

I have arrived in Tratorria. When you arrive, mention my name to the waitress at the front and she will take care of the rest.

- Nathaniel Giovanni

Layla had messaged everyone earlier on to let them know what time they should be ready, but she hadn't heard back from Nathaniel on where they were meeting. If it were up to her, she would have just gone to the cafeteria with everyone, but Nathan...well, he was Nathan. There was very little she could do about that. He would NEVER go for it.

It was a round 5pm when she received a text message.

---
To: Velvet Room

I have arrived in Tratorria. When you arrive, mention my name to the waitress at the front and she will take care of the rest.

- Nathaniel Geovanni


----

Layla read the text message and couldn't help but giggle. Nate could be so Pompous and pretentious some of the...hell, all of the time really.

She texted him back

Nathan >> Kay. I'll go get everyone.

She sent a message to everyone else.

>> Apparently we're going to Trattoria. Really good Itallian restaurant. I'll be picking you guys up soon, so wait out in front of your dorm.

She sighed and went to her closet to at least put on something kind of nice. She pulled out a Knee length, navy blue pencil skirt and a nice white blouse, then fixed her hair up with her morning glory clip. After touching up her make up, she grabbed her keys and a messenger bag and headed out the door. She felt a little weird being more dressed up than normal, but she shrugged and started up the car, making her way to pick up her club mates.

------------------

"There's never any good parking." Layla commented. She finally found a decent spot and maneuvered in, careful to not park too close to the adjacent cars.

"Alright, let's go."

She lead the group inside and told the waitress that they had someone waiting for them, and were lead to the back where Nathan was. She pulled out the seat that was next to him and sat down, placing her bag on the floor next to her.

"Showing off, Sir Giovanni?" She smirked. She only ever used his last name when teasing him.


((Edited to add going into the restaurant lol. Assume everyone is picked up in there. being railroaded along? IT'S JUST LIKE REAL PERSONA LOLOLOL))

Nathaniel looked up at the sound of the door creaking open, seeing a well dressed Layla emerge from the opening. A small hint of surprise could barely be traced on Nathaniel's cold expression as his partner took a seat beside him, all smiles and sunshine.

...Impressive. Even Nathaniel thought the girl looked quite radiant in proper form and dress. He was sure a short conversation with her would change all that, however.

" You're late. " Nathaniel quipped, affording her a short glance before giving his attention to the ones that followed after her. He recognized Seonwu and Lau from the other day, but the other two were a pair of new faces to him.

" Have a seat. " Nathaniel said, giving a signal to the waitress to serve the appetizer while they chatted.

"You know, the leading cause of problems in nearly all situations is a breakdown of communication. You should have texted me before you got here, or let me know ahead of time so I could have told everyone and picked them up sooner."

As they sat down, Layla motioned to the two that he hadn't met.

"I'd like you to meet Ren and Rebecca. Guys, this is Nathaniel, fellow officer for the Velvet room." She said, doing the usual introductory motions.

"In any case" Layla started, taking on a more serious tone "despite the impromptu nature of this meeting, I'd like to formally welcome you to the Velvet room. I suppose it's only fair we give you a better explanation on what we do, and why we recruited you."

She nodded at Nathaniel, indicating for him to continue.

Nathaniel merely nodded at the two newcomers, looking at them with a discerning eye before continuing. Reserving whatever thoughts he had for their new members, Nathaniel pushed up his thin frames before speaking.

" Our group may appear to be as a sort of mystery solving club to you. That is only partially true however. I assure you that we do much, much more. "

" Before we begin... I'd like to ask this group one simple question. " Nathaniel paused as the waitress started to serve bread and olive oil, waiting for her to leave before continuing.

" What do you think of the Irvine suicides that have been plaguing this city for the past few years? I assume that you've heard of them. " Nathaniel asked, a serious look encompassing his face as he eyed the velvet room members one by one.

Rebecca spoke up first. "Well, I know most people blame stress...but I don't know, something feels off. Of course, I know just about nothing about these suicides...Maybe there's just a lot of kids who have depression here."

"Oh yeah those," chimed in Amber when the red head beside her was finished. "That's part of the reason my mom didn't want me going here."

It was unspoken and all, but Amber knew her mother worried for her mental health and that being in a place where so many were offing themselves would give her ideas or something. Amber had to do everything to convince her mother that she was stronger than that.

"I don't really know what would cause something like that but... like I told Layla the other day it sounds like something the student health services should be looking into."

"Those suicides..." Keith began as Amber finished, "Truth is, I'm rather curious about them. Something just.. seems very off."

"Send everyone who shows signs to a counseling session then," Amber scoffed as a waitress came back with a basket of bread. She greedily took one of the bread sticks and started eating.

"Can I have spaghetti?" she asked the waitress. "With meatballs. And I'd like a sweet tea."

"Exactly what I was thinking. Why is a mystery club investigating this?" Keith added, "Unless you guys aren't really a mystery club and are really something much bigger. Or something." He turned to the waitress, "I'd like lasagna and a pepsie."

"Well there has to be something here that isn't in other universities. I don't see other university kids offing themselves as much as here. Like, is there something that MAKES people here suicide?" Added Rebecca.

She then turned to the waitress and said, "Can I get spaghetti with marinara? And some apple juice, please."

((lol that waitress is like "wut they taklin bout"))

"Well, Seattle has a high suicide rate just by the weather. Maybe people are thinking too much about nothing and it'll all pass by. I mean, none of us want to kill ourselves right?" there was a bit of nervous laughter at the end of her statement.

" While depression is no doubt a common cause for a suicide, it has been also known to happen to people who are well-off, probably much more than you and I. There are a few things that link one suicide to the others, something that I will be getting to in a bit. " Nathaniel reasoned out, nodding at Rebecca.

Hearing Amber's reply disappointed him however, making him scoff himself before he answered.

" I wonder if you even do listen to the news, Lau. The health office and the police alike have no way to know when a suicide will take place. The victims have been known to show no signs of their imminent death... Until a certain point, and by then it would be too late. "

Nathaniel couldn't help but smirk at Keith's deduction. The boy was brighter than he gave him credit for.

" You are correct. As I said, we are much more than a mystery club. The next few days are going to be very important for our group. "

" Ah, and on an unrelated note. I shall be handling the bill for this evening. So help yourselves to anything you wish. Consider it a gift. " Nathaniel said, as he continued to observe the budding group with a discerning eye.

"I'll have eggplant parmagiana and some Strawberry lemonade, please." She said to the waitress as she was taking orders.

Layla pulled out some papers from her bag.

"Stress alone doesn't cause suicide. That's a common misconception. The true cause more often than not that the person feels extremely alienated and alone. Such as..."

Layla passed out some of the papers she had. On them were screen shots of Connect U user pages. Names and faces were blocked out, and some paragraphs remained.

---

I don't get it either, I wish she would have talked to me, I would have listened.

--

Yeah, he started acting all weird and never wanted to hang out with us. We just stopped calling because he was always brushing us off. Guess this is what happens huh.

--

Actually no, she wasn't a loner. She didn't have many friends but she didn't like being alone. Kim and I were really close to her, known her since middle school. She never acted she wanted to kill herself.

"She never acted she wanted to kill herself." - Yeah, that's what they all say.

No, like, she was always bouncy and happy with us. Never let things get her down. I can't believe she did this.

--

We should have checked on her when she stopped coming to meetings.

--

**** it, I was gonna go lok on hs user page for a convo we had about this, but it got dleted a bit back.

Yeah, wasn't it hacked?

"**** it, I was gonna go lok on hs user page for a convo we had about this, but it got dleted a bit back." - Learn to type, brah. But yeah, it got nuked because some hacker was using it to send out spam links and shit.

--

No, He was a good student, 4.0 gpa, was always hanging out in clubs. Went out clubbing with me a lot. Then suddenly boom, out of nowhere he just stayed in his room all the time. Found him hanging from the closet bars a week later. Messed up shit man.

--

I heard he was doing drugs.


- That's a bold faced lie. I was roomies with him, and he never did that shit man.


--

Layla pulled out another stack and set it down next to her plate. She was hoping that everyone would be done soon and the waitress would leave.

"Read over those and then tell me it's the usual depression and stress. Some of them were slackers, some of them were top notch students. But none of them had a reason to kill themselves." she said flatly.
