Dawn went back up to her own room once they’d gotten back to Gilkey, but she didn’t want to stay there. She gathered up her things for homework—she had a few sources she was still taking notes on for her History of Psychology paper, and her sociology class kept assigning homework up until the last class, which was Monday—and took it with her down to Rico’s room. She knocked on the door and he let her in. “Hey, sweetie.” He kissed her on the cheek.
She smiled, fairly certain that Duncan was in the room, because Rico was usually even more demonstrative when they were alone. “Hi. I have some work to do, and I figured we could sit and work together. Make it go faster.”
