"That's a shame. It sucks when that happens." Scarlett shrugged, "To be honest, I'm losing contact with my friends from back home too, my cousin's here but all my friends... they're not." She huffed, "It's annoying. I just... New places are annoying." She shook her head, stuffing her cardigan in her handbag.
She was quiet for a minute before speaking up again, "Maybe you should try making friends with that mutual interest... you can find more mutual interests from there." She shrugged, "Or just... make time for both. You should talk to my cousin Ethan, I think you could be friends with him. He's smart too."
"Alternatively, I'll send people your way, and then you'll have to make friends." She smirked slightly.
Iyaza listened to Scarlett, frowning with some her words. She lightly tapped Scarlett on the arm, stopping their walk under one of the trees.
"Well, I know you have some friends already. You even got Sho as a boyfriend. You shouldn't feel too bad about losing tour old friends. It does happen but you're on your way to making a new and happy life here."
She paused for a moment before smiling a little wider. "If you'd like...I'll be another friend of yours, Scarlett. So that I can start making friends as well, just like you advised me."

"New friends don't replace old ones." Scarlett replied, frowning at Izaya, "Friendships you built up over years don't get replaced that easily, surely you know that." She shrugged, "Besides. I'm not that happy here. I'm not a happy person, I just laugh a lot." She shook her head, "Sho's different, I knew him before I moved to London."
She was quiet for a minute then she smiled, "Okay, well let's be friends, I'll introduce you to some people I know, and hopefully get those two off your back." She began walking again, "What video games do you play?"
Izaya felt a little stupid when she heard Scarlett mention that new friendships don't replace the old ones. "They don't...but that doesn't mean you can cherish the news ones." She said softly.
She looked down for a minute before Scarlett said that they could be friends and smiled rather widely at the girl. "Thank you!"
"Oh!" Izaya's eyes seemed to brighten up at the mention of video games and actually let out a little giggle as she covered her mouth. "I play everything. Console games, PC games, App games, handheld games." She paused for a moment for nodding to herself. "If you'd like, you can see my gaming library in my dorm."

Scarlett looked down at her then smiled slightly, "Sure. I'd like that."
As they got to the dorm building she waved Izaya up first then followed her upstairs, "Play any Pokemon? Animal Crossing? GTA?" Scarlett shrugged, "I like video games... we could play together some time, if you wanted."
"So what else are you into? Besides video games I mean."
Izaya smiled as she led the way up, glad that she wasn't too far up in the dorms and nodded. "I've played them all. I love Pokemon and Animal Crossing personally. GTA, I've played all of them but I prefer Saint's Row." She added and stopped in front of her dorm. She opened the door for Scarlett letting the girl inside first.
"I would love to play some games with you at any time, Scarlett." She said taking off her school shoes and closed the door. She headed inside, the rooms lined with book shelves of books, video games and some collectibles as well. She had a small table set up, where she had a tea set out in place and some crackers that had been covered.
"I'm sorry that it's a bit messy but I tend to keep my room pretty organized and cleaned. Same with the bedroom." She added and put her bag down by the table. "Umm, well for other things, I like to read and collect stuff animals." She blushed a bit though and sat down. "And well...I can copy animal and creature sounds."

"I haven't played much Saints Row." Scarlett shrugged, walking into the apartment and looking around. She ducked down quickly to slide her shoes off and to leave them by the door as she ventured further inside. It was a nice kept apartment, pretty sweet. She walked over to the bookcase and looked over all her books quickly.
"It's not that messy, don't worry so much." Scarlett replied, eyes still scanning the bookshelf. She looked up and raised an eyebrow, "Creature sounds? Interesting... do you hunt or spend a lot of time around wildlife? Is it kind of communicating?" She looked back at the figures and muttered under her breath, "Erik would envy you..."
She was quiet for a minute before turning around, "Let's play some video games or something."
"Ah, I don't hunt...I just liked imitating animals when I was little and stuck to it." She said moving to make some tea for them and smiled at Scarlett. "I can....ummm, show you if you want to hear something." She said before vaguely hearing Scarlett mutter a name. "Erik?" She asked curiously.
"Oh! I'd like that! Why don't you choose what you'd like to play? I have all the consoles set up, so it won't be too hard to play whichever system you want."

Animal sounds didn't sound very exciting. It sounded... strange. Why would she want to hear them??
"Another time perhaps." When Izaya asked about Erik, Scarlett didn't answer for a minute, eyes still scanning over the assembled books and models on the shelf, running a finger over one of them and then looking at it. Pristine. No dust at all. The models and figurines were certainly very well kept. As they should be.
"He's my old friend from London." She said quietly, shrugging and trying to appear nonchalant, "He likes animals."
Turning around, finally, she waved a hand, moving over to the game shelf and running a manicured nail over the spines of the game boxes. Eventually she stopped on one and tapped it, sliding it out between the two other games it was lodged between.
"Ah, okay." Izaya said. Was that too weird? Maybe I can show her that I can copy Pokemon, then it'd be interesting? She thought to herself, bringing out the tea when the whistle went off. She placed it down on the mat on the table and looked to Scarlett when she answered about Erik.
"Oh...I see. He sounds like a really nice person, Scarlett." She said pouring the tea for both of them and smiled when Scarlett picked out Halo. "That's fine with me! I have everything unlocked and ready to use. You can pick which ever way you want to play and whatever controller works best for you or you like the designs. I have a few special ones that are over there." She said moving to the TV to get it set up, only needing to switch out one cable before the system was set up and ready.

Scarlett frowned as Izaya started to pour tea and looked at the game case, muttering under her breath, "I've said barely anything about him..." She was starting to feel uncomfortable. The need to defend Izaya from earlier was beginning to lessen. She still felt sorry for her though. She seemed... desperate? She didn't seem to have many friends, maybe that was why.
She needed to calm down a bit.
Picking up one of the wireless controllers, she handed the Halo box to Izaya to set up. She sat down quietly, putting the controller down and picking up one of the teacups, "Thanks for the tea." She sipped quietly, waiting for the title screen to get booted up.
Izaya had finally finished setting up Halo, putting the case down on the TV stand and walked back to one of the cushions she had by the table and smiled to Scarlett. "You're welcome. What would you prefer to do, Scarlet? Story mode in co-op? Maybe with a harder difficulty? Or Multiplayer? I don't mind either."

Scarlett was quiet for a minute, sitting up straight and sipping from her tea, thinking quietly. "It's Halo 3... so we'd probably just be better off doing me against you or something." She put the teacup down and picked up the controller, logging into her XBox live account and waiting for Izaya to do the same, then choosing through the options.
"Which map do you want?" Scarlett looked up, flicking through the maps, "Last Resort or Orbital?" She looked up for a minute, "I'll set the rounds set to win to 10 or we'll be here forever."
Izaya was signing into her Xbox live account when Scarlett was saying that it'd be better for them to go against each other. "That's fine with me. Hmm," She put her controller down, picking up her own tea and sipped a bit. "Let's go with Orbital. It's been a while since I've played on that map. Do you mind?" She asked putting her cup back down on the table and smiled. "10 is just fine. I do have some studying to do tonight for a test coming up."

"We'll play Last Resort next time then." Scarlett gave side shrug, moving through the menu, "It's a pretty big map... but they all are, I suppose it doesn't make much of a difference." Moving through the weapons, she hummed, "I'm putting assault rifle for primary weapon and... gravity hammer for secondary." It made her laugh. If you timed it right, it was like playing golf with the other person.
When Izaya mentioned the test she frowned, "Don't remind me, I'm not looking forward to it at all."
Moving to start game, it loaded up and she nodded, "You're top screen."
