Arroyo Love Dream (S&D)

by Sonali J.

I get up to shower and go into the hallway in my towel. I see a trash bag and try to get the lining out, when I realize I'm not wearing my shower shoes! I go back to my room to get my shower shoes, but the room looks twice as large and immaculately clean! Then, I remember my mom just came and decided to clean my room for me. I get super excited because now my roommate and I can rearrange the room and have a ton of space. I go back to the door, and there's a cup of Coke sitting on the handle, so I take it and drink it. Then, I go to C.'s room to check out her furniture arrangement for ideas because I love her room. Upon entering, I notice a side door that I've never noticed before that leads to her balcony. I go out onto the balcony, and I see 70s porn star with long straightened hair and his usual impressive mustache banging on the door of Arroyo to see H. When I go down there, I see that it's actually a guy calling out all of our names. He's passing out new ID cards for us, which suddenly makes sense because I saw him taking random pictures of us last week.

I immediately snatch them from him because I know they're fake, and I go to the RCC's room too report him, but it's not E.! It's a bunch of stoner guys with those Peruvian hats sitting on bunk-beds on their computers. T. is also there at a desk under a lofted bed, and I go to see what's on his computer but the room is too hot, and he's all sweaty, and I'm frustrated that no one is helping me, so I leave because I'm grossed out and annoyed. I get into the hallway, and I see S. and M. standing in the doorway of the girls bathroom and S. is eating a Luna bar. I ask if it is peanut butter, but he tells me it's actually Asian noodle flavored, so I'm like noooo thank you. Then, I see M. helping C. out of the shower because C. is sick. M. gives C. a piggy back ride, but C.'s naked, so I give her my towel, but now I'm naked! But, I don't care, and we all go back upstairs. ARROYO LOVE
