The next morning, the boys bid their grandparents farewell as they left for work. Then they and their mother got prepared.
At twelve PM, Dino's aunt who'd be going to work too dropped him off at the Smith's house where he would eventually follow the twins to their new school.
Kloe joined them at the house hours after dropping Noemi off at her own school.
"So you ready?" She asked Donnie and the boys.
"Yeah." Donnica turned to the Butler "Eli have you made sure to put all the bags and stuff in the car?"
"Yes. But there's one baggage that won't fit. One of Mister Dino's."
"Oh then we'll have to change the car and get a bigger one."
"That won't be necessary ma'am. We'll just put it in the car with us." Dino replied.
"Okay then. Now that we're set, let's go."
We drove into the large school property of Huntington University and the first thing we noticed were the numerous cars that were parked about, students and families everywhere. The families were probably there to accompany freshmen like ourselves.
It was the reopening day and the school was full. There was a clear distinction between the freshmen and seniors. All freshmen had those: 'Hi I'm straight outta highschool! Yay!' ... Appearances.
Mom pulled up in front of what was supposed to be the 'B-dorms' where according to our guide, Lorenzo, Dino and I would be staying.
We got out of the car and carried the heaviest bags while Mom and aunt Kloe helped with the smaller ones.
"What floor?" Mom asked.
"Hahaha there are elevators." Lorenzo laughed, informing them.
"Yeah there better be."
We all laughed and entered the building. What we noticed at first really surprised us.
On the first floor there were both boys and girls moving about.
"The school has mixed dorms??" Dino asked, as surprised as all of us.
"They didn't mention that in the brochures or guides." My Mom added.
"Well it isn't a bad thing is it?" Lorenzo chuckled and I laughed a little.
"Well no. Let's get your things upstairs."
Dino and I normally shared the same room and Lorenzo had the room right next to ours which he would share with another student. But Dino was cool enough to exchange rooms with Lorenzo so we would be together.
"Here we are. Room F3." We stopped in front of our room.
"That's E3. Mine." Dino said, going over to his and opening the door.
We did same and stepped in. The rooms were great. Perfect in fact.
There was enough space, two beds, two tables, each side had a drawer and a main window with an overview on campus.
"Wow the rooms are nice." Aunt Kloe cooed.
"I agree. I bet you already like it."
"Yes we do mama!"
"Hahaha now let's hurry and fix things up."
We succeeded in bringing all our stuff to our rooms and arranged them properly with the help of mom and aunt Kloe.
The rooms already had cable and so we easily installed our TV. Everything was perfect!
Soon it was past four pm and mom and aunt Kloe had to leave.
"Aaaw we'll miss you two." They hugged each of us.
"We'll miss you too."
"I should probably leave real quick before I start crying." Mom laughed with watery eyes and we hugged her again.
"See you during the holidays my babies."
"See you mom."
"Always call as often as possible okay?" Aunt Kloe added.
"Aaaw..." She hugged us again and we laughed "...they're big boys now. Hard to believe."
They told Dino goodbye and we eventually accompanied them back to the car. And when we watched them leave, I felt a sudden tight knot in my tummy that disappeared almost immediately.
"You felt that?" I asked Lorenzo.
"Sure did." He replied, a hand on his tummy "I'll miss them a lot. Let's go in before I get tempted to sob." He joked and I chuckled.
"Excuse me?" A Lady called and we turned.
"Any of you have a guide on you? My son lost his. I just want to check something out."
"Sure." Lorenzo went to her.
Just then, I received a video call from uncle Lorenzo. I picked immediately.
'Heeeyyy' he was with my father and I smiled immediately.
"Heeeyyy." I mimicked with a laugh.
"Big boys now huh? Finally in college."
I playfully adjusted my shades in that proud manner before spinning on myself, showing a bit of the campus.
As you can see."
"Oh yes we can. Who's Lorenzo talking to?" Dad asked.
"A woman that needed help."
Lorenzo then joined us.
"Hey dads!" He exclaimed with a chuckle.
"You just got there and you've already gotten a job as touristic guide??" They laughed.
"I can't help it if I look helpful."
"What? That makes no sense in a way." Uncle Leandro added and we laughed.
"So how's the place? Your rooms?"
"Perfect dad. They're okay."
"Guess what..." Lorenzo poked his head in front of the camera with a mischievous chuckle that was very funny, making everyone laugh.
"We're mixed. They are all mixed dormitories!" He exclaimed happily.
Dad shook his head in amusement while uncle Leandro laughed out.
"That's cool!" He replied.
"I know right!" Enzo replied excitedly and dad ended up laughing.
"Be careful though." Uncle Leandro added "Know who you deal with. Boys and girls. Okay?"
"We never know who is who." Our dad added and we nodded.
After a long fun chat with our father and uncle, we retired to our dorm building.
On entering, there was a girl having a hard time taking her huge bag to the elevator. But that wasn't the only thing I noticed. She had the perfect pair of boobs.
"Hey Angel. You need help?" I asked, smiling at her. She smiled back, slightly blushing.
"Um yeah...if you don't mind."
"I never mind when beautiful girls ask me for help. My brother and I will help you with that."
"Excuse me?" Lorenzo asked, looking at me with wide eyes. That look that said: "Do I look like I want to suffer with you just to impress a girl like any other??"
Lorenzo was way complicated than I was in everything. Even with girls. True he liked hot girls too but according to him, you had to have some degree of swag or self-respect for him to be the least attracted by you. Nothing to do with me. Girls were all the same. Eye candy. Different shapes and sizes, self-respect or not, swag or not, I liked them all.
"Yes. You're gonna help me won't you?" I put an arm over his shoulder and pulled him close. Lorenzo rolled his eyes at me, pulling away from my grip.
"Fine but let's be quick. We have to go sign up for the frat stuff with Dino. It's already started."
We went towards the girl and I stretched a hand out.
"Hey I'm Alejandro." I told her.
"I'm his twin." Lorenzo replied casually.
"Well hello Alejandro and his very identical twin..." The girl giggled, looking from one to the other "...I guessed you were Latino even before you gave me your name. From the accents. Spanish?"
"Maybe." Lorenzo cut in with a smirk before I could complete my answer.
"Okay..." She smiled at us "I'm Sue."
"Nice to meet you Sue."
We then helped her with her bag.
Later that evening after we'd signed up to be part of a fraternity, we retired to our room, freshened up and Dino later joined us in our room for a long chat. We were so excited we actually didn't sleep. So did many other freshmen. The B-dorms were solely occupied by freshmen though there was a room on the last floor occupied by two third year seniors to supervise that there was no disorder.
We could hear fidgeting and laughs from almost all the rooms. I'm pretty sure no one could find sleep that night.
