Jessica nodded her head quickly, already seeing the gray blob turning brighter. She offered her hand downward to Heather,” Perfect! Come on! There’s a music studio somewhere around here on campus, I’m pretty sure. I hear the Glee kinds practice in there sometimes.”
Jess wasn’t too sure about that. She hadn’t taken Music as an elective because she was afraid she wouldn’t be as talented as any of the other kids, but this wasn’t about talent this was about comfort. She hoped that maybe if she wasn’t talented it would further help Heather find comfort in her new home of SHH.
“Come on!” she smiled welcomingly, grabbing Heather’s arm and pulling her up to her feet,”We need to beat those stupid Glee kids!”
Heather stumbled a bit then found her footing as Jessica pulled her up. “Oh, I actually know where that is!” she said, amazed and a little bit excited she actually knew where something was. Even after being here for two weeks, she was still lost as ever when it came to getting around the campus. Or the city around them either, for that matter.
She led the way to the little studio, having been in it a couple times. She’d actually come across it trying to find her way to music the first day, and made note of where it was specifically so she could come back. Time and circumstances had gotten away from her though, and Heather had never gotten the chance. Perfect time to go now, though.
Opening the door, she peeked inside to make sure no one else was in the room. It would just be awkward if they were, and Heather didn’t want to sing with anyone other than Jessica right now. She could choose to show off some other time.
Heather knew she was vocally talented, if not talented in anything else at all. It was a confidence boost, and knowing someone at SHH other than her roommate would find out too was nice for her.
Jessica took a step into the room once Heather had made sure the close was clear. She was thankful Heather had done so because it would be pretty awkward to walk in on a recording session. She looked around and was yet again amazed by her new school. SHH seemed to have everything in everyone’s craziest dreams and worst nightmares. It was a school that knew no limits and knew not when to say “no.” The more Jess thought about it the more she realized the school generally let them roam around freely, it was actually kind of weird.
“Isn’t this place great?!” Jess exclaimed as she looked around. It wasn’t until she did a full spin that she realized it wasn’t exactly perfect. The color theme was one she was not interested in. It was red and black, something that was probably normal but to her seemed like what a vampire turned music producer would designate as non-threatening. It was not the kind of place she wanted to have her uplifting pep-talk.
