(One x one between Redblood and @Nim) "Don't worry. No one will notice." Erica reassured herself. Her stomach clearly didn't agree as it protested over and over again. It was too late to turn around though. Everything had already been planned out. Willow Creek's private high school would be her new school and home for the next three years, just as it had been her father's and grandfather's once. There was only one problem. It was a boys only school. Her family had a tradition of sending their firstborn son to Willow Creek high school, but since her mother and father split up before a second child had been born, and her father still hadn't thought about remarrying, her grandfather selfishly decided to send the only child of the family to that school to make sure the tradition continued. Erica didn't get much of a say in the matter, and her father blindly listened to his father. If someone found out about her gender, she wouldn't just be thrown out of the school, her family would probably see her as a failure. From now on, Erica would be known as Eric, and that wouldn't change for three long years. Her mother didn't know about it of course. If she ever got to hear that her daughter was forced to become a man when she had tried so hard to make Erica into the perfect lady, she would flip out completely. She guessed her father would lie and say that she was studying in an all girls school instead. Because lies never backfired. Nervously she brushed a hand through her newly cut blonde hair. It was an odd feeling. She had never had short hair before. It felt nice, as if a weight had been lifted from her head, but at the same time, she did miss to be able to play around with her long locks. Oh well, in three years she would be able to let it grow back out again. Only three more years. A deep sigh left her lips. It would probably be the three longest most anxious years of her life. Erica put a hand on the door handle to the room she would live in from now on and slowly pushed it open. The test began now. Could she fool her roommate to believe she was one of the dudes? She certainly looked a bit too feminine, but with her chest tied up and her hair cut short, people should be perplexed enough to not assume she was one or another before her personality established which one was correct. Luckily she was in an all boys school, so it wasn't even up to her personality. Most people would most likely just think that no girl would come into the school, thus no matter how girly she seemed, they would just assume she must be a boy. But better not take any chances. She had to refrain from feminine behaviors as much as possible from now on. "Excuse me for intruding. I'm your new roommate, Eric Brooks." She said, before even having opened the door completely. At that point she couldn't even be certain if her roommate was in there or not.
