Charles Roger Amos is the current prefect of Windsor House. He has previously taken leave for a paintball accident caused by The Tweedles, but has since returned to Dalton.
According to what little bits of the issue that have been made in the story so far, it is implied that the Tweedles had, once again, been having a paintball battle. It had culminated in the twins taking out a paintball cannon of unknown origins that hit Charlie right as he was at the Windsor staircase. He had apparently fallen down, hit a squeaky mallet, fell some more, before finally crashing into the potted plant next to banister end.
He was then in traction for many weeks and the post of Acting Prefect had then been given to Blaine. Charlie wasn't present when Kurt was officially brought into Windsor House and had missed (and had been uninformed of) all the ongoings in the succeeding episodes before he returns, still a little banged up, in the episode Paint.
Charlie appears to have excellent command of the Windsor boys who obey him strictly when he tries to rein in the pandemonium. However, he too does subscribe to the Windsor type of attitude as is proven when he allows the twins to retain the prized Pavarotti out of vengeance towards Logan and Stuart House. Charlie is described to be tall, and have unruly brown hair and cornflower blue eyes. He is also an athlete as his build (and implication of throwing javelins) attests to.
He used to play the drums but stopped because his parents didn't like the noise that his band made. Although he says it was noise and couldn't be classified as music.
He has never dressed up as Charlie Brown.
Charlie’s parents run a big trucking company.
Charlies parents are those 'we love you, we care for you' type parents, always fussing over their son.
He was really small and skinny when he was young.
As a child, Charlie liked fish. He would stick his hands in aquariums, fishbowls, ponds, etc trying to grab at fishies.
He's the same height as Logan.
His favorite color is blue or yellow.
Charlie has thick, semi-long brown hair. He doesn't like it too long as it gets in the way when he plays sports.
If he liked a girl, he'd do river, rowboat, strawberries and roses.
He's a little interested in pyschology.
He wants to settle down and live in a house that doesn't explode every six minutes.
Chaz has a condition that makes him impossible to be drunk, but this also means he cannot drink, because he’ll die of alcohol poisoning before he gets a buzz.
Charlie wears a lot of fitting shirts and jeans because he likes being able to move easily and comfortably. He usually wears running shoes or sneakers.
He's perfectly capable of killing someone with his bare hands.
Charlie barely made a couple of rows when learning to crochet.
When given playdoh, he made a baseball and a baseball bat.
His nickname is Jolly Roger which is a nickname that he hates.
Only sleeps in his boxers.
Charlie wants to go to Harvard.
Charlie hates grapefuit. He is totally against grapefruit for some reason.
Chaz found out he couldn't drink during a holiday with his family where nothing his cousins did could get him drunk. They had him tested after.
Charlie knows plenty about sex.
For Childrens Day, all boys and girls dressed up as their favorite characters as a child. Charlie dressed up as He-Man.
He hates pears.
He gets up very early for a run.
He's really good at javelin.
Charlie once punched a boy so hard, the boy lost two teeth.
All boys and some girls had a jousting competition. Everyone rode a horse, and used an eleven-foot log to try and knock off their opponents. The houses Windsor, Stuart, Hanover and Lancaster have agreed that whichever house "wins" will be served by all the other houses in a big cookout. Charlie is jousting for House of Windsor. He came into the feast wearing a heavy crown. His armor was slightly gold tinted. Hope gave Charlie a white rose as a favor.
Charlie was facing Nathan from Something Damaged. Kurt said that Charlie has been practicing for this. When the flag went down, both lances hit their targets. Charlie and Nathan were both thrown back from the impact. Both of them held on. Both boys were soon okay to joust again, so they went back out. When the flag went down, Charlie managed to slam his lance straight into Nathan’s chest. Nathan flew off his horse, but his foot got caught in the stirrup and he was dragged for a bit for he fully hit the ground.
Charlie won the round and got a kiss from Hope before going back to Windsor side. For round two, Charlie was up against Danny from Hanover. Charlie said he wasn’t going to hold back as Danny or Justin wouldn’t forgive him if he did. When the flag dropped, Charlie’s lance connected and imploded into Danny’s breastplate and Danny was thrown backwards. Danny’s lance scraped Charlie’s shield and broke. Charlie stayed on his horse.
Danny was slumped over, but also stayed on the horse. Charlie was more worried about Danny than himself. He mounted the horse and rode off. When the flag dropped, Danny drove his lance at Charlie but it hit the other lance and shattered. Charlie’s blunted lance struck Danny’s shoulder, sending him overboard. Charlie won.
His Type Of Girl and Celebrity Crushes
"As far as celeb crushes go, I like Emma Stone. :D But seriously, my kind of girl would be a bit like Katherine, you know? The type who says what she’s got on her mind… I also don’t want a girlfriend that wears so much makeup—I like girls looking, you know…normal?
I also don’t like girls who are too busy trying to look like Kate Moss or something. Hey, I want to be able to share a Big Mac with her or something. I like my food and I want a girl who does too! :D"
He's a senior.
Chaz has a special section of the school greenhouse to himself. Mr. Tamerlane likes him. Chaz also has plants at the windowsills of his room. The boys who panic about forgetting their girlfriends’ anniversaries or birthdays usually come begging to pull out a flower or two.
In a school course where they all had to take care of something like a child, Charlie's was one of the only ones that survived.
He feels like a mother, having to look after everyone who doesn’t want to be looked after.
This tradition of “assaulting” someone with material stems from Charlie’s day. Yes, this is all Charlie’s fault. Way back in the day, he got this brilliant idea to help one of the newbies cope by leaving him a class of orange juice next to his study desk. That student particularly liked orange juice, so he was glad to have someone unknown just randomly giving him this stuff, and brightened up. Charlie told this to the others and…well…the next day… you can imagine what happened in the dorm room.
Charlie has been in Hanover, and he often says that it’s pretty nice there.
Charlie plays along with everyone else when he’s in the mood (it’s what got him injured in the first place).
Charlie about Logan: "He needs to get it together. Fast. In his position, he’s got too much power to wield and not enough calm to keep it all together. He’ll be all right as long as he doesn’t go too far. And right now, he’s pushing the line pretty hard. I don’t want a repeat of the incidents last year because last year I just barely restrained myself and Justin. And if you can get Justin worked up, that’s saying something."
Apart from the Tweedles, Dwight drives him the most insane.
In his first year alone, Charlie had started or was involved in a total of thirty-five pranks.
When the boys decided to dress up in drag to be Kurt's mothers on Mothers Day, Charlie work a semi-frilled cornflower blue dress. They were plotting this for days.
One time Mr. Tamerlane gathered up all the dry leaves around Stuart house into a big pile, bad things happened. First, when no one was looking, Charlie put a small tank of gas inside the pile. Then he took a bow and arrow from the archery team. He was at a good distance away. Then he padded an arrowhead, wet it with lighter fluid, lit it, and then shot that mother right into the pile.
Charlie's very first detention at Dalton was from putting a prefect's boxer shorts on the head of the Herman Dalton statue in the courtyard.
When all the boys played Ice Hockey, everyone ran when Charlie hit the puck, even the goalie ran off.
Charlie says the limit of keeping track of the boys is the USA. If they cause trouble in other countries, he won't help.
Regarding Rockband, the mop and Markie (Tamerlanes duck): David had to clean the mop and Wes had to repair the guitar. The Tweedles were positive it wasn't going to hit the chandelier. Charlie was close to calling animal protection. Reed says that the good thing was that they beat their Rockband record. Then the drums caught fire.
Charlie's room is at the end of the hall.
Kurt once made cookies and Charlie decorated a few of them.
The thing about the prefects (all three boys) is that when they're about to punch you, they won't give you warning. They'll just go ahead and slug you without changing expression. Just the opening punch, mind you. Charlie's had to deal with a lot of people complaining about the twins hitting on their partners.
Windsor's fridge was once packed full of freeze pops. Charlie demanded to know who did it, threatening, "WHOEVER DID THIS IS GOING TO LIVE ON NOTHING BUT THESE OTTER POPS UNTIL THEY RUN OUT, UNDERSTAND?!"
Charlie knows when the house is hungry, because they will throw all the condiments and non-edibles on the floor and even rip the fridge door off if there isn't food.
Because of his upcoming graduation, Charlie has been tormented by the Tweedles. Evan states, "We're trying to cram as much migraine into Charlie as possible." He's been waking up to horror every day for the past five days - and the twins have been threatened to death fifteen times. The twins say they are targetting nearly all seniors but paying special attention to Charlie because he's their prefect and needs the most attention.
Windsor has a book called "Mommy, Why Did You Shoot Daddy In The Head? (Helping Your Child Understand The Zombie Apocalypse) which Charlie isn't sure why they have at all, but they insist they want to be prepared.
Charlie once walked into Windsor chaos, all the boys yelling, things flying everywhere, and wondered what was going on. Blaine calmly told him that Kurt made chocolate chip cake with marshmallow icing. Kurt had been stressed and he stress bakes. Charlie didn't even get a piece in the end, they told him "You snooze, you lose."
On Mother's day, Windsor woke Charlie up by throwing a bucket of water onto him...dragged him downstairs...and then had a rave. They stuffed him with so much food.
He really won't forgive himself for jumping from the Art building. Justin knew the only way he'd even do it is if he had cargo. S'why he gave him the Art teacher to carry. Charlie would have responsibility to get the unconscious teacher to safety. He'd have to jump.
At Charlie's request, Han changed the WIFI password, and set out a list of chores for Windsor to do, saying he'd turn it back on when they're done.
If Charlie ever went to Hanover to escape the insanity of Windsor, he'd crash on the sofa. Justin would understand, and Merril would leave tea and scones in case he woke up hungry.
When a Windsor comes up to Charlie and starts telling him how much they care for him as a friend, he immediately assumes they'e done something wrong and demands to know what happened.
Dalton boys like to mattress joust. The last champion was Charlie. Charlie would even beat Jeff. They would clearly say that mattress surfing and mattress jousting are two very different sports with different techniques and skills. That sure, while being expert at one gives you a certain advantage, it's different when that's your entire area of discipline.
Peter once put on a video of a hotdog eating competition to entertain Windsor, and it was a video where Charlie ended up throwing up all over Ramsey.
One time, Charlie was doing homework, and he though the Twins just ran by his door naked. Which was the kind of thing that you tend to think you didn't see or would like to pretend you didn't see. And then Wes and David ran past in the same state and after that Charlie took a second to take a deep breath and proceeded to panic
"Oh god, they've degenerated to orgies--" and ran downstairs to break it all up to find most of the boys clothed and apparently they had too much mountain dew and red bull and apparently were daring each other to streak across campus and whoever gets the furthest without getting caught wins. LOOK, they just came from deadlines and exams, they had to let out steam somehow.
Dalton and Dobry
Justin Bancroft was lurking (it had to be lurking, he seemed to dislike the "cheery" festivities and kept to the corners) in the Dalton-Dobry event, being completely disinterested. He stood with the rest of the Hanover boys, basically grumbling to himself. He saw one of the other freshmen glowering at one of the girls, and they looked like they were squabbling.
Finally, the girl grabbed the boy's tie and yanked it far up his neck, making him choke, commanded him to stay there and strode off to the buffet. Justin snorted and told the other freshman boy that his girlfriend must be a pain. To which Spencer Willis replied that the "pain" was his twin sister, Sydney. Rough, Justin told him, and Spencer just rolled his eyes saying that it was like having his mother around fussing about his uniform.
Sydney returned and shoved a cup of punch at her brother's hands and raised an eyebrow at Justin and asked who he was. Justin told her exactly who he was. Sydney was completely unfazed and reported to him exactly who -she- was. That was when Hope and Charlie arrived into the event. Hope made a beeline for her friend from Royal House, clung onto Sydney's arm and giggled. Charlie rolled his eyes and stood with Justin and complained about the festivities.
Hope thinks the event is pretty. Sydney thinks its boring. Spencer wants to eat, but he hates the "prim" food. Justin suggested they break the hell out and get some decent food and asked if there was any place that had fish and chips around. Charlie said that there was a burger joint not far. Sydney disapproved of escaping. Spencer told her that if she wanted to be boring, she could stay.
Justin just shrugged and said he didn't think of her as the "salad" type. Charlie laughed at that. Sydney glared and said she wasn't and that she bet she ate more than he did. Hope said a soda would be nice. So Charlie lit a firecracker and tossed it behind the buffet table. Sydney was furious. Spencer laughed. The firecracker exploded. Everyone went nuts. The five of them escaped.
Dressing In Drag
The boys were looking through old photos and were seriously arguing who looked the best in drag. "Look at your knees! You look like you've been kneeling in ashes!" "Screw you, man, my figure was better than yours!" "You don't even look good as a blonde! It takes charisma to pull that off!" " Your heels sucked!" "Excuse you, I looked like damn supermodel in those heels!" "You look like you needed some serious eyebrow threading." "At least I didn't have a five-o-clock shadow."
"Hey, I was Claudia freaking Schiffer in that dress. What do you call that shapeless sackcloth you were wearing?" "That was PRADA!" "Man, that was a bad lipstick color on you." "That was the only thing I could get!" "I think you'd've looked better in coral, really brings out your eyes." "Really?" And Kurt, the aforementioned victim of all this drag-ness, is pretending this isn't happening. "Look at this. You're not even sitting like a girl. You're sitting like a red-light district bang tail."
"I was the epitome of grace!!" "You need grace. Like prayers. Like before meals." They then organized a walk-off. Reed was happy to help while Kurt wasn't but the boys dragged them both off to dress them anyway. They all went to Dobry. 45 minutes later, they were all dressed up. Hope was standing on a big auditorium stage as the girls squeal in the audience.
"WELCOME TO THE DALTON ACADEMY WALK OFF!!" David opens the show. In full getup and wig and makeup. And a long silver evening gown. Katherine was laughing and screaming simultaneously. Charlie, in heels, follows after Wes, looking like he's way too big for that cornflower blue dress he's got on. Hope was falling all over Sydney, giggling.
And then Shane. Who's still in the wedding dress. Reed was laughing too hard to stand up as Shane struts down the runway, hamming it up. Kurt asked " ...why are you dating him again?" and Reed raises an eyebrow at him before gesturing to the runway. Blaine swirls into the runway and struts down it. Kurt: "......I retract my previous statement." Wes strolls in wearing a flowy, wavy dress and strutting along, and all the girls cheer because he's working it. Wes flashes everyone a pageant smile and blows kisses before strolling off.
The twins wore matching dresses. They were wearing that Zuhair Murad dress Miley Cyrus wore to the oscars. Satoru wore a red kimono dress covered in roses. David wore a sparkling blue and gray ball gown. Wes and Han were the finalists. Wes for pure fabulousness. Han for a disturbingly convincing costume of full sweet pink frilly loli dress complete with giant curly wig and ribbons. Lucy was very proud of that. With matching coat. And gloves. And socks. And baby pink platform shoes. And a ribbon. It was disturblingly convincing. He looked like Lucy.
He was wearing false eyelashes and sparkling eyeliner. Han had surprisingly nice legs in those socks. Lucy said he actually shaved them because she made him do it. Wes did get a crown when he won. He cried. And waved. The Dalton boys were laughing too hard to get up from their chairs. They were so proud of him. When Wes got changed back, he still wore his crown and pretended it wasn't there.
Fourth Of July 2012
Spencer crawled under his bed and was screaming, "GET HER AWAY FROM ME, JUSTIN, DO SOMETHING, YOU'RE THE PREFECT!!"
Justin replied, "She is your sister. Besides, you should be enjoying the day with your fam--"
Danny then popped in and told him that Sydney was on the phone, but Spencer yelled, "I DO NOT EXIST."
Danny replied, "--so should I tell her you're indisposed?"
Spencer yelled, "I AM A ROCK. AN IMMOVABLE ROCK."
Justin spoke up, "Danny, just tell Sydney that Spencer is busy, er...meditating on the magnitude of this holiday."
So Danny agreed and left.
Jeff then peeked in and told Justin, "By the way, Windsor's outdone themselves this year."
Justin blanched and said, "Don't tell me--"
Oliver looked out the hallway windsor, "...impressive."
Justin grabbed his phone and hit speed-dial number 2 which called Charlie who answered with, "Whaddayawant?!"
"You guys swore that you'd never come near fireworks EVER AGAIN"
Charlie innocently replied, "When did we promise that...?"
"Oh cool your British pants, Hanover, we've got it under control. It's the FOURTH OF JULY. This demands fireworks."
"After what happened last year--"
"WE MAINTAIN THAT THAT WAS NOT INTENTIONAL."
"That crater is still there!! Landscaping hasn't even figured out how to fix that!!"
"YOU'RE NOT EVEN BORN OF THIS NATION, YOUR OPINION DOESN'T COUNT, SO SHUT UP AND ENJOY THE FIREWORKS." then Charlie hung up.
Justin groaned and dropped his head onto the desk.
Danny was staring out the window and saying, "That shipment's got to be in the metric tons."
Ollie took the binoculars from him and said, "And not even the premade ones... I didn't think it was legal to have that much potassium nitrate in a single shipment--"
Justin put his jacket on at that point and announced, "Well, I'm betting that's for the mad scientists and the Caterpillar to manage..."
Oliver kept looking out and said, "I can't identify the twine the twin boys are carrying."
Spencer then came over and told him it was cannon fuse so Justin said he was now going over there.
Fourth Of July 2013
Someone reminded the Hanover boys, and Justin immediately looked up and speed dialed Charlie while Spencer ran off to try and find somewhere to hide.
Charlie answered, "This is Windsor," and Justin just yelled, "NO!".
Charlie yelled back, "YOU'RE NOT AMERICAN, YOUR OPINION ON OUR FIREWORKS IS UNNECESSARY."
For the longest time, Reed had problems organizing his closet by himself. When the boxes and boxes of stuff from his mom came in, he naturally had to sort them out--by designer, then by color. Considering how accident prone he is, that was not an easy feat to do, and he often gets helped - so to speak - by whoever Windsor was free at the time.
In the time when Blaine wasn't around, Reed pretty much gave up on getting any proper help from the other boys. Wes and David couldn't tell designers apart, and Charlie couldn't even tell the difference between casual pants and formal pants, so there goes that idea. All the twins ever want to do was to play with the accessories and put on the clothes and reenact overdramatic scenes, so they weren't much help either.
When Dwight was around, he just wanted to salt and purify everything. So when Reed became friends with Blaine, he at least had some decent help in sorting things out. But it wasn't until Kurt when Reed actually properly arranged his entire closet within a day of shipment arrival.
Charlie and Justin hang out together a lot and they're best friends. They met when they were freshmen and they got along well because they shared a good number of classes and were both into sports.
Justin being in a gang before coming to Dalton was the reason Chaz and Justin got along—Charlie also wasn’t a model citizen back then, and he and Justin had things in common back before they had to put on big boy pants and become prefects.
He's stronger than Justin.
One time, Justin and Charlie set a mountain cat loose in the cafeteria. Animal control had to be called.
One time in sophomore year, Charlie and Justin broke into the varsity shower room and filled all the shower heads with red food coloring. The team came in after practice that ran late and… as you can imagine. On Tuesdays, Charlie goes to bring Justin an extra thermos of tea for after rowing practice. On Thursdays, Justin leaves a cooler of gatorade for Charlie during track practice.
Justin and Charlie have had their moments overcoming language barriers. Like that time they were going to pull one over on Mr Newman, and Justin told Charlie to tie his braces to the chair. And Charlie was all, "...that's a little hard to do, and I think he has dentures?"
One time, Justin was hip deep in trouble. He was toeing a very fine line towards suspension and he was about to get caught once again. The teacher was grilling him and everything, about to weasel the truth out of him. Charlie saw it happen through the window, and he ran off and created a distraction so big that it got the teacher running and got all the attention on him instead. The teacher forgot about Justin, and Charlie landed detention for a week, but Justin waited for him to get out every day.
Charlie told Justin, "How come you don't have a Hogwarts, man? No wonder no one wants to marry you." so Justin told him to shut up.
Charlie and Justin
Charlie and Justin are kind of like a married couple. Charlie's daddy because he's the disciplinarian (or at least tries) Justin is the one the kiddies run to when they have problems, because he can almost always fix it. So he gets to be mommy. They're together a lot, griping about their respective houses. Not that Justin would have a lot to gripe about.
Or maybe he actually does in the "old Justin" way. Charlie's never actually changed except for responsibility levels, so he'll gripe about Windsor a lot. Justin pretty much applauded Charlie's fine idea of baseball-bat-to-lab-set. And Charlie sometimes try to do what Justin tries to do: gather up the whole house for a partially rational meeting.
He had only gone out with one or two girls before Leslie. One in junior high and one in freshman year.
He dated Leslie for six months but that ended when she blew up after seeing his cousin with him.
On what he saw in Leslie: "Leslie was a badass, and she was hot, and she was into me, and I liked her! I thought we’d do great, but then she because totally psycho possessive! It just wasn’t right anymore, I put up with it a really long time, but I put my foot down when she even went after my cousin after she saw me TALKING TO HER. (shakes head)"
Leslie had been jealous of how close Charlie and Justin were, so she indicated to Charlie to 'break up with him.'
Charlie maintains that Leslie was really okay for the first month; a little attached but she was okay, "and then it kind of... I don't know."
Justin repeatedly told Justin that Leslie was insane and he needed to break up with her, but Charlie said, "I didn't feel right with just "chucking" her, okay?? I thought she'd cool down! But after the thing with my cousin..." Kurt then said, "And now my question is, if Justin could sense a long time ago that Leslie was insane, why did you hold back when it was Adam?" in which everyone in the room went dead silent before Justin yelled, "OH MY GOD, I'M AN IDIOT" before slamming his forehead into the table.
Sydney vs. Leslie
Chaz, Hope, Justin, Spencer and Sydney hang out together and eat at that burger joint. Anyway Chaz didn't take Leslie along (for "I need air" reasons) and the boys naturally brought the girls back to Dobry. They were just all talking, you know, normal like. And then Leslie flew in all mad and started going off at Charlie. Hope tried to calm her down but she got yelled at and Sydney sort of just ignored Leslie (which made her madder)
And so she flew at Sydney. Sydney looked kind of bored, blinking at her as Leslie screamed her head off. And then she calmly body checked her to the ground. She held her wrists at her back, like police do, and asked her with great patience if she would please shut up--Leslie was screaming by then and Chaz was begging Sydney to let his girlfriend go, please.
Sydney refused to release Leslie until she asked to let go and agreed that she will not speak to Sydney again like that EVER. She got a smothered agreement out of her and released her. Never happened again.
On Charlie's accident: Paintball war happened. Then Tweedles brought out heavy artillery. Blasted Chaz with the cannon. Chaz fell down the stairs with the force of it. Hit the first landing, slipped on a squeaky mallet, fell some more, then collided into a potted plant at the bottom of the stairs. He made Blaine the Acting Prefect as the paramedics carried him out.
After his accident, he told the twins off for wanting to poke him while he was still lying there.
Charlie worried about nothing except Windsor while he was in the hospital during his accident.
He was in hospital for weeks up to a month.
He plans to take Hope to prom.
Charlie will work hard to get/keep Hope.
Charlie first asked Hope out by doing it the Windsor way. In this case, he used the “flood her room” method and I think it was just lucky that Hope even FOUND the stuffed bear that had the “Will you go out with me” message on it. She liked it so much she refused to shut up about it. Everyone in Prima kept giving her things to eat so she would stop talking about it. The Double-A’s actually did the task for Charlie.
Charlie's always very careful when it comes to physical things with Hope. He always makes sure she's ok with what he would do.
Charlie sends Hope a text good morning every morning before going out to a morning jog.
Hope goes over to Dalton every Wednesday to bring Charlie a basket of treats for after his varsity practice.
Charlie can sing a bit, and once him and Hope sang "Give In To Me' from Country Strong once. David said they were very good together.
Charlie went to see Hope, and the girls were having pillow fights in their underwear. He was convinced he got into some kind of accident on the way and he was actually in nirvana. He walked into a door.
Justin suggested that Charlie and Hope's relationship was like the one in 300 where Sparta had to ask his wife's permission first. Charlie just grinned and agreed while Hope beamed and preened a little.
Southern-raised Hope had to be the one to properly school Chaz on how to shoot.
Chaz knew Hope was the one when she went to thanksgiving with his family and brought a turkey she shot all on her own! She cooked it too.
Sydney spends more time with Hope than Charlie does.
CP on Charlie and Hope
"Well, I think Hope has always had a thing for Chaz. But she was really the type of girl to not let it show. Very self-contained, that one. After the time they first met, Chaz saw Hope as one of the few female friends he had in Dobry Hall.
She was sensible and level-headed—and was so incorruptibly cheerful and optimistic that it was something of a marvel to him. I suppose he saw her as a stable thing in his life, and they really talked a lot and got along well. As for Hope, she saw Chaz as the one who’s only a bad boy on the outside—and that he was really a nice guy if you got down to it. :)"
Charlie and Hope Meet
It was Chaz’ freshman year, and he had his first look at what a Dalton-Dobry event looked like. The girls trooped in, and the older boys looked pretty thrilled about it. Everyone headed to the event, but Chaz wasn’t interested. Chaz met the freshman named Hope by the fountain, all alone.
She was fretting and looked worried, looking into the water. He asked her if she was okay, and she said she was trying to polish her Prima badge and it fell into the fountain. She couldn’t find it and she wasn’t sure if the water was clean and didn’t want to wade in Chaz just laughed, saying she could always get another badge.
But Hope just said that badges were important because they were gifted to you, they represented your dorm family, and it was all in all a pretty sanctimonious speech and Chaz thought she was crazy. Hope just frowned at him and finally tried to convince herself that the only way she was going to get it back was if she went into the water.
She was halfway through taking her socks off when Chaz finally told her to stop, rolled his eyes, and went into the water, uniform and all. After a minute or two, he stubbed his toe on the badge, and gave it back to Hope begrudgingly, telling her not to lose the silly thing again. Hope just smiled and was very happy and thanked him.
