What: The results of academic probation
Rating: PG (probably for language)

Izzy walks into the library once the bell rings, sitting down at one the tables that isn't occupied. She sets down the stack of books she is carrying, not entirely sure which subject she is supposed to be covering today. She practically radiates nerves, while simultaneously seems to be trying to sink into her chair.

As is her habit, out comes the sketchbook, which she begins to sketch in. She also scans the room as she works, trying to spot the infamous McQueen.

Brooke looked at her watched and let out a silent curse when she entered the library. She was late and she hated being late. Her days just seemed to get worse and worse. She'd rather be anywhere but in the library. Only she didn't have a choice. So taking a deep breath, she decided to make the best of the situation.

The library was virtually empty, save for a few upperclassmen that Brooke knew passing via Marley Jacobs. She scanned the room looking for an unfamiliar face. At least she hoped it was unfamiliar because she was pretty sure that she didn't know an...Isabelle Jameson.

Her eyes found a girl with short reddish brown hair and glasses. Her head was bent and she was scribbling on a pad. Brooke assumed that this was Isabelle. She walked up to the table and cleared her throat. When the girl looked up, Brooke flashed her best "Brooke McQueen smile."

"Hi, are you Isabelle Jameson?"
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 20th, 2006 05:49 am (UTC)
Izzy looks up at the throat clearing, also jumping slightly in her seat. She does her best not to be visibly dazzled by the smile, but also looks thoroughly confused. This was not the girl from the hallway. And what was with the full name thing?

"Uh... yes?"
Brooke McQueen: brooke mcqueenglamazon_queen on December 20th, 2006 05:52 am (UTC)
Brooke's smile faltered slightly at the girl's obvious confusion. Maybe she was new to Kennedy.

Brooke held her hand out to the girl. "Hi, Isabelle...I'm Brooke McQueen...your, um, tutor."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 20th, 2006 06:00 am (UTC)
"You're Brooke McQueen?" Her tone isn't rude, just... highly surprised. And confused.

She recovers after a moment, blushing at actually having said that out loud. She quickly shakes the offered hand. "I... uh... sorry. I mean. It's nice to meet you. And please, it's Izzy." She is clearly embarassed, as well as still nervous.

Brooke McQueen: brooke mcqueenglamazon_queen on December 20th, 2006 09:30 pm (UTC)
Brooke returned the smile. Usually by now, Josh's eyes would have glazed over and Nicole wouldn't have even been listening to what she was saying. It was nice to have someone really listen to her for a change. "Yeah, it's really interesting. I've just always wondered why people never questioned that he landed in Central America and there is a country named after him in South America, but the U.S. is the only country that celebrates Columbus Day."

Brooke spoke excitedly. She'd never really discussed her opinion on such matters with anyone, not even in class. It wasn't a part of the 'popularity' package. She was expected to get good grades but not to ever appear too brainy. It was sometimes difficult to balance.

"Anyway, we're not going to be tested on all of that. Again sorry for the tangent." She smiled sheepishly and turned back to her notes. "Today we talked about the diseases the Europeans brought with them when the arrived. And we have to answer the questions at the end of chapter."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 20th, 2006 09:35 pm (UTC)
She continues to listen with interest. "Y'know, that really is odd. That the States celebrate it, but no one else does."

As Brooke talks, she seems to relax a little, pleasantly surprised with her tutor. In fact, she actually looks disappointed when Brooke steers them back on topic.

"You really have nothing to apologize for. it really was interesting... too bad it won't be the kinds of things we're tested on." She stifles a sigh, looking back to her notes and flipping a few pages in her textbook to find the appropriate questions. "Right."
Brooke McQueen: angsty confusionglamazon_queen on December 20th, 2006 09:58 pm (UTC)
Brooke got to work on her questions. She liked that she would be able to finish most of her homework with this time as well as help someone else out. Plus Izzy seemed nice and Brooke didn't see there being a problem working with her in the foreseeable future.

She asked Izzy the questions and they would discuss them. She wondered slightly why Izzy needed to be tutored. She seemed to grasp the concepts with no problems. She decided to refrain from asking though. It wasn't any of her business and she barely knew this girl. Instead she focused on finishing the questions.

Just as she was ready to close up her notebook, she saw the football team heading out to the field for practice. Her eyes immediately fell upon Josh. He was joking around with Sugar Daddy. She'd been looking for him right after the last bell had rung. That was why she'd been late to the tutoring session. She guessed he was still avoiding her, which hurt a lot. She needed to apologize to him. She just hoped he'd listen.


She sighed and slipped her notebook back into her bookbag.
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 20th, 2006 10:09 pm (UTC)
Izzy also got to work on her questions, not really having trouble with them, despite the new material.

When asked the questions, she answers, of course, then discusses intelligently. She is otherwise subdued and quiet, though, still not happy about 'needing' the tutoring.

As they both finish with the questions, she closes her notebook, her attention drawn to Brooke as she notes the other girl's stillness and the distressed look she bears. She follows Brooke's gaze to the football team and Josh's vicinity, then looks back to Brooke, wondering which one of the boys was the cause of her unhappiness. Despite not really knowing her tutor, she looks concerned and sympathetic. She does not, however, say anything, feeling as though it would be probing and inappropriate.

Instead, she just slips her notebook into her bag, as well. "What should we do next?" Her tone is hesitant, also gentler than it was.

Brooke McQueen: Brookieglamazon_queen on December 21st, 2006 12:39 am (UTC)
"Um..thanks?" Brooke was slightly confused at the girl's almost hurt tone. "I'm sure sharing will be fine. Which chapter are you guys studying in class?" She decided to ignore the sudden weirdness.
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 21st, 2006 12:54 am (UTC)
Still another weak smile as she flips to the first chapter. "Chapter one. An introduction to American geography."
Brooke McQueen: brooke mcqueenglamazon_queen on December 21st, 2006 01:03 am (UTC)
"Okay..."Brooke said in a distracted voice as she skimmed the unit summary. She flipped to the first page. "Okay so we're back to Columbus. Only this time, we get some of his friends, Amerigo Vespucci and The Vikings. This should be a good reinforcement for history." Brooke hoped she didn't come off as geeky as she felt.
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 21st, 2006 01:06 am (UTC)
Izzy stays silent as Brooke reads over the summary, not wanting to interrupt. She nods. "Well good, hopefully that will make things easier, then. Though I don't think I know who Vespucci was. And I mean, everyone knows The Vikings.. but how does this relate to American geography?"

Brooke McQueen: brooke mcqueenglamazon_queen on December 21st, 2006 02:31 am (UTC)
Brooke took the proffered sketchpad looking at the rough sketch. Though it was incomplete, she could still see how absolutely breathtaking the place was. She wondered if it had been hard for Izzy to leave behind. She didn't dare ask. They'd seemed to be on weird emotional rollercoaster and Brooke didn't think she could handle another twist.

"Wow, this is beautiful. I bet it's nothing in comparison to the real thing, huh?" She asked wistfully. "Oh, and I was kidding about the transcript. Well at least half kidding."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 21st, 2006 02:38 am (UTC)
The wistful nature of the sketch itself, along with Izzy's expression probably answer Brooke's question, even unasked.

She nods, smiling a little, "Yeah, the sketch doesn't even begin to really capture it. It's a wonderful place. If you get a chance to go to the Laurentiens, I highly recommend it." A glint of humour in her eyes as she responds to the latter half of your statement, "Don't worry about it. I wasn't offended."
Brooke McQueen: Brookieglamazon_queen on December 21st, 2006 02:42 am (UTC)
"I will definitely keep that in mind..."Brooke handed the pad back to Izzy before clearing her throat. "We are way off topic here. I think it's time we get back to geography and those vikings."
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 21st, 2006 02:47 am (UTC)
Izzy accepts the sketchpad, again closing it carefully and setting it back down where it was. She stifles a sigh at the return to geography, even though she knows it makes sense. "Yeah, you're right... so... vikings?"
glamazonxnicglamazonxnic on December 21st, 2006 04:29 pm (UTC)
"There you are, hun. I've been looking for you all over..." Nicole entered the library, headed towards Brooke. Though why Brooke was in the library, she had no idea. It wasn't as if the girl needed to study. Lucky whore. "I was thinking we could go pick up the stuff we needed for your part...oh...what's this? I'm not interrupting your downward spiral, am I?"
Brooke McQueen: angsty confusionglamazon_queen on December 21st, 2006 04:39 pm (UTC)
Brooke's head shot up at the sudden sound of Nicole's voice. She quickly looked over at Izzy and noticed the other girl shrank away when she saw Nicole. Uh oh...another Nicole victim...

"Uh hey Nic, what are you doing here?" Brooke stood from the table and walked over to her friend.
glamazonxnicglamazonxnic on December 21st, 2006 04:44 pm (UTC)
"As I was about to tell you before the eyesore you're spending your time with blinded me...I thought we could go shopping....for party stuff."
Brooke McQueen: Brookieglamazon_queen on December 21st, 2006 04:49 pm (UTC)
"Oh...um that sounds fine, but I have to finish up here first." She looked back at Izzy nervously then quickly back to Nicole.

Brooke McQueen: Brookieglamazon_queen on December 21st, 2006 05:22 pm (UTC)
Brooke let out the breath she hadn't even been aware she was holding. She'd just dodged a bullet and she knew it. She was happy that she hadn't told Nic about the tutoring. That wouldn't have ended pretty. She turned back to Izzy, walked over to her seat, and sat down.

"I'm sorry about that. She's just that way sometimes, but she's harmless really." Even Brooke knew that was a lie, but most people didn't get to see the Nicole she did.
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 22nd, 2006 01:58 am (UTC)
Izzy shrinks into her seat as she sees Nicole head their way. She can already see the horrors that can develop if this girl discovers she's on academic probation, or even needs tutoring... she'd never hear the end of it. And everyone else would hear it.

As Nic and Brooke talk, she grabs her sketchbook and focuses entirely too intently on, pretending she can't hear the other two, slowly sinking further and further into her seat. WHen Brooke lies, though, her gaze darts up in surprise and relief, before quickly returning to her sketchbook. She flips backwards a few pages, scribbling something quickly on the back of one page, before carefully tearing it out along the edge. She looks up and when she is quite certain neither Brooke nor Nic are looking, she slips it into one of Brooke's textbooks.

By the time Brooke has turned around, she is back to simply looking through her sketchbook, though still looks like she wants to sink through the floor. She places it back on the table when she notices Brooke's attention has returned. A forced, but genuinely grateful smile. "You don't need to apologize for her, you weren't the one... well, being that way." And she tactfully refrains from pointing out the blatant lie.
Brooke McQueen: Brookieglamazon_queen on December 22nd, 2006 02:14 am (UTC)
Brooke smiled at the girl's words. "I know, but it sort of comes with the territory when you're Nicole Julian's best friend." Brooke wasn't sure why she was even explaining all of that to this girl.

She looked back at the geography book and skipped a few pages ahead. "Do you have to do the questions at the end of the chapter for homework?" Brooke needed to focus on wrapping up this session. Nicole would not be happy if Brooke was late.
izzy_jamesonizzy_jameson on December 22nd, 2006 02:51 am (UTC)
She nods, the pieces falling in place. "Well, it's nice of you to apologize for her."

She nods in response to the question, "Yeah, we do."
