The fall really had come way to soon and now Maddison found herself back to what she called reality now. The past year had been a dream to her. A very pleasant one, but she knew that it wouldn't last forever considering that she needed to take her place at Ellinton. It was amongst her top choices for where to go and considering that Holden was willing to front the bill for it, she wasn’t going to turn down the spot. A part of her wasn’t sure what to expect when she arrived considering her decision of taking a proper gap year to wanders and ‘find’ herself. The time away did serve to at least give her a new outlook on things. There was a new sense of life in her for the time being at least.
As the driver drove up to what would be her new home for her stay, Maddison looked upon Nighthawk Hall. It wasn't what she had expected but at least it wasn’t what she had feared it would be. In all honesty, she had hoped for something like this and not a boring cookie-cutter type dormitory. That wasn't what she had signed on for when she had agreed to continue her education Stateside. There had to be terms to be met when it came to things in her life and this was no way different. It annoyed her that it had to come to things like that, but given the way her life had been; it did come with the territory.
Once the driver stopped and gathered all her luggage from the vehicle, she stepped out into the sun and glanced around. Yes, this would be her home for a while and there was no going back now. She would just make the best of it was she always did. Pulling out details of her day that were given to her, she directed the driver to follow her as she went on to find her room and meet her roommate. She had become accustom to sharing a room, but she had wished it was possible for her to have her own room again. Perhaps that would happen in later years, but for now she would just have to share.
Room 312 was where she needed to be and luckily it didn't take her all that long to find it. From the looks of it, she had gotten there first. The room was bare for the time being, but it wouldn't stay that way if she had anything to do with it. Directing the driver to just leave her things, she claimed what would be her side of the room and began to settle in. It would only be a matter of time before her roommate would show up or someone would venture by to be social. That was how things worked on moving day, right?
