Dea's eyes made direct contact with Remington's Head Student badge, and the whisky browns nearly grew to the size of plates.
Oh, this is bad. This is really, really bad, Dea thought. Typically, her bravado and mischief were very present and she didn't regret much when it came to her antics, but right now? Sitting next to Remy? Making conversation with a Head Student who could probably see right through her?
Yeah, all her bravery just went out the window. Considering the fact that she snuck in a giant hunk of metal and engine. Probably illegally. So yeah, Dea wasn't feeling very confident in her choices.
"Yeah, that's uh, that's me, I guess. And um, that's pretty cool, actually," Deagret spat out, trying her best to remain calm. "Though I wouldn't want to be thinking about college, honestly. How was the training though?"
And then the dreaded question came. What had she really done this summer, other than get her dirt bike and ride around like a maniac?
Well...she would have to do the unthinkable.
Dea put her head down, cheeks suddenly vibrant red, and choked out. "I got to forty thousand followers on TikTok. So I guess that's cool. And I pierced my ear but uh, that's not as interesting, I think?" Good idea, try to play it off with something else! The redhead pointed to the little, silver braided ring that sat above the edge of her earlobe. Really, it had only been a matter of time. Dea wanted constellation piercings, which meant way more than just her orbital.
She was prepared to be laughed at (over TikTok, not her piercing, which she thought hella rad). She was prepared for snickering and whispering to other students, though Dea really didn't know why she was thinking that considering that Remy seemed nice and also was a Head Student, so that wouldn't line up.
Very nervous and very embarrassed, Dea quickly shoved a piece in her mouth to shut herself up.
