Ayla showed them the painting of Lord Paramount and the Guzman gold as well as some of the other trophies then from there they went into the tunnels, “Oh, one last thing, TGs room together since there are five of you that means one of you gets a single. You should discuss it while we walk so it gets solved before we get back and choose rooms. “
“To show a united front to the others, you mean?” Asuna asks.
“Yeah,” Ayla nods. “Not that anyone would rag on you for it.” She pauses, “Well nobody but Sharisha anyway. She’s like our very own Oscar the Grouch.” She shrugs, “It’s just that I don’t want my first tour group to end up arguing in public or even semi-public. “
Bobby looks at the other boy, “I guess it’s you and me then?”
The boy formerly named Sara nods, “I guess, especially if the other boys on the floor are gay. I’m not really ready for anything like that in this body.” He shrugs, “Not that I was ready in my old one but, well, you know.”
Bobby nods, “Yeah.”
The girl still known as Steve says, “Uh, if I could get the single I’d be happy.”
Asuna says, “I can room with either of you. Do either of you mind leaving the room for a bit if I want a little snuggle time with my girlfriend?”
John shrugs, “I wouldn’t mind that but you might mind changing in the same room as me.”
Asuna shrugs, “You don’t have anything I either have now or have had before and it’s not like you’ll be flashing right? You aren’t a nudist or anything?”
“No, and no,” John replies chuckling. “You have a deal then.” They shake hands and smile.
Steve smiles too, “Cool, a single.”
“It will only last until the next TG gets here,” Ayla says. “We usually get one or two before spring semester.”
“I’ll enjoy it while it lasts then,” Steve says.
Ayla nods and shows them the workshop, then takes them back up and points out all the different dorms along with Administration and security. “Next will be the campus store and after that we’ll grab rooms then lunch. If you are new to buying clothes for your gender please ask for advice.”
Asuna bought uniforms for herself and Kim and made a mental note to come back here for more shopping later, “Is there a guideline for things we can do with our rooms? I ask because it seems like they have a lot of cool things I’d like to get.”
Ayla nods, “You can personalize in a lot of ways and they’ll deliver the heavier stuff but anything other than simple additions should be cleared with the house mother first.”
New purchases in hand they returned to Poe Cottage and picked rooms along the short corridor between the girl’s side and the boy’s side. Asuna dumped her purchases on one bed and went to go grab her duffel when Kim found her and gave her a big hug and a big kiss.
“I missed you! I wish we could room together but we can’t and I told the others we’re dating. I hope you don’t mind but some of those wenches move fast and I had to stake a claim and I hope you got a cool roomie. Mine seems cool. Can you help me carry my suitcases upstairs? You can meet her then. I’m starving, can we go to lunch soon?” Kim finally stop to take a breath and looked at Asuna with big puppy dog eyes.
Asuna smiles, “Yes, I’ll carry your bags up and yes we can go to lunch after. I also bought you some uniforms, they are up in my room. You can meet my roomie then too.” She grabs all the suitcases and her duffel and wearing the backpacks carries everything upstairs following Kim.
When they got to Kim’s room she dumped most of it and looked around, “Mine looks the same. Nice but bland. I was thinking later we’d go to the campus store and get some shelving and stuff as well as snacks and drinks for the little fridge. Sound good?”
“Sure! Hey this my roomie Karen,” Kim introduced a slightly pudgy brunette of average height. “She a telepath! Isn’t that cool?”
Asuna shakes her hand hand, “Hi, I’m Sue. I hope you don’t peek when she you’re not supposed to?” She blushed a bit then because she realized it was a rude question, “Sorry, I didn’t mean to sound rude.”
Karen waved it away, “It’s okay. A lot of people are worried about that. I never peek on purpose but I’m not great at shielding yet so sometime I pick up on surface thoughts. Don’t worry though, I know how to keep a secret.”
Sue nodded, “I guess it’s something we all learned. Come on Kim, let’s head over to my room where you can grab the uniforms I bought for you and meet my roomie. Then we can go eat.”
“Sure!” Kim enthused. She’d managed to put all her clothes away while Sue was talking.
When they got to Asuna’s room John was still in his darkness shell. “Kim this is John. John, this is my girlfriend Kim. She’ll be coming to lunch with us.” She lifted the smaller set of uniforms, “These are yours Kim.”
“Hey! How come mine have skirts and yours have pants?” Kim asked.
“Because you like them and I don’t?” Sue replied.
“Well, actually I just wore them to get your attention. I’m going to want some slacks as well. Especially when winter hits,” Kim replies.
“Okay,” Sue says. “We’ll go back after lunch and get you some pants too. Now come on,” she grabbed Kim by the hand and started tugging her toward the stairs. Ayla wanted to walk us to the cafeteria and introduce to some people. I’m sure she won’t mind you coming along.”
