Alex moved away and went over to get more of something to drink. He looked around the room and smiled a bit to himself, happy to have everyone there.

(Because I don't want Clare's RP to just die :P )

Sam watched Alex go back to the drinks and looked at her own drink and wrinkled her nose. She could either sit here and be sorry over not even getting rejected, or she could actually find out if he would take a chance on her. She got up from the couch and went over to the drinks, putting her cup down and looked at Alex, opening her mouth to speak, but then-- losing the words. "I---"

(Lmao ty. It be like that sometimes.)

"Oh, did you want some more?" Alex asked, looking at the cup and then at Sam. "What were you drinking?" He turned away to grab some of the liquor.

"Oh, no, I don't need more to drink," Sam said quickly, "I wanted to know if you would have time to go out with me some--time," she said and realized how dumb she sounded as it rounded out. She grit her teeth as she waited for a response.

Robyn, who had joined the others on the couch was watching Sam and Alex's exchange with a small smile; she was proud of her friend for going for it.

Alex stopped moving the drinks around and looked up at Sam, confused for a split second. "Well sure, yeah, I have time. When were you thinking?"

Sam looked at Alex and raised her eyebrows, surprised and now trying to come up with an answer, "Well, I can always do Thursday nights and Tuesdays I don't have class all day, but I work at the tutor center for two hours between 3 and 5." she then paused, "Or I could just help you clean up after the party tonight."

"Oh, you don't really have to stay. That won't be much fun," he shrugged. "But yeah, I work Monday, Wednesday, Friday, but Tuesday sounds fine."

Sam looked at him and nodded, “Sure. Tuesday. I could come up with something by then,” she said and then took a big sip from her drink. Why was that so easy? He’s just said he didn’t have time to date. Wait, did he not know it was a date? She put her cup down, “Can I have some water?”

"Sure thing!" He went over to his fridge and pulled out a pitcher. "I don't really trust the tap water here," he explained as he poured some into a cup for her.

“Thank you,” Sam told him as she took the cup and crinkled her nose, “Still that strawberry liquor aftertaste,” she teased and looked around at the party, “Its so nice of you to open your home to us. Where are your roommates?”

"Your guess is as good as mine. I think one of them's at his girlfriends house, the others...who knows. We usually don't see each other here much, opposite schedules and all that." He leaned against the counter and sipped his own drink. "Where are you living this year?"

“Still is the dorm. Down the hall from Robyn actually. I almost didn’t come tonight, but she made sure to bully me out of my room,” Sam said and played with her shirt, adjusting it a bit.

"Oh, nice! That's pretty convenient. I kinda miss the dorms, or at least the food." Alex sighed wistfully. "But, anyway, I'm really glad she convinced you to come. Wouldn't be the same otherwise."

Sam smiled at him and nodded before smiling over at Robyn, "She is pretty much the best." she then played with a piece of her hair, "Are you enjoying your classes?"
