Room 312, lateTuesday afternoon
After Reserves, Dinah headed back to her room and pulled out the music book she'd bought a week or so ago, and settled in to practice learning to sight-read, shutting the door so as not to bug anyone too much.

The do re mi fa so la ti do would still probably be audible as you got closer, though.

[door is shut, but post is open, and door will probably be open again soon.]

"Not your fault, you were trying to keep the escape artist in," Dinah said leaving the door open and putting Camille back on her bed, where she immediately began to wash her paw and ignore Dinah as punishment. "This is Duchess Camilla Haruhi Maria-Evangelina-chan Junior. My ex-roomie named her." She grinned at him, and flopped down onto the bed next to the cat. "How have you been? I don't think I saw you at Fight Club on Sunday." She scritched Camille behind the ears. "And are you looking forward to Parents' Weekend?"

"Did you used to live with Momoko?" Jaime laughed in amusement at the convoluted name.

Oh. Parents' Weekend. Um... right. Please excuse Jaime while he dodges the question for a few seconds by rummaging around in his bag of junk food. "You want some chips or cookies or something? I've got way more than I need."

Okay, so that was a bit obvious, but... He needed a second or two.

Dinah snickered. "Chad. Yasutora Sado, actally, but his nickname was Chad. You can catch him on So You Want To Be The Nation's Top Model on Mondays," she said proudly. "That's his photo over there," she added, nodding to her bulletin board.

"And.. sure? I've got some cookies here, though, if you want," Dinah said, reaching for the usual Tin Of Cookies From Alfred.

"Trade you?" Jaime suggested with a grin.

"And what about you, excited about whoever's visiting you?" He asked it as if he had already answered her part. He also half-suspected that it would only delay the inevitable.

"Sure! I'm always up for new cookie frontiers." Dinah grinned at him.

"My sisters, and yeah. I saw them last month, but this is the first time they've been here. I just hope Helena doesn't decide that this place isn't safe enough." She paused, then pointedly said, "And who's visiting you? Or is it not visiting you?"

Jaime sighed and bought another second pulling out a package of cookies (with rainbow sprinkles on them) and opening it.

"Um... not visiting." He was dealing!

Dinah gave him an awww look anyway, and brightened when she saw the sprinkles.

So did Camille, who tried to pounce off the bed toward them.

"No, no, not for cats. Sheesh." She shook her head and looked back at Jaime. "Are you good with that? I mean. It's been a month. Are you going to go back for a visit soon, see everyone?"

Jaime laughed at Camille's antics and snagged an Alfred!cookie.

"Soon, I hope, yeah, but... that won't solve this little problem." Going home wasn't going to make him un-dumped.

"What little problem?" Dinah asked, nibbling on a sprinkled cookie, and keeping Camille back with her leg.

"I found out yesterday that my girlfriend isn't going to make it. And that... she isn't." He managed to quirk a half smile.

"She isn't...?" Dinah paused, then blinked. "Wait, what?"

"I sort of got dumped," he admitted, rubbing at the back of his neck sheepishly.

Oh. Look. A tasty cookie.

"Awww, Jaime," Dinah said, sympathy audible this time. "Why? I mean. If you don't want to talk about it, that's cool. Have another cookie. But it still sucks." Camille, meanwhile, was now patting Jaime's knee. Possibly in comfort. Possibly in cookie-begging.

Jaime reached down absently to rub at Camille's ears as he munched on his cookie.

"Oh, it's no big deal." He was trying to sound casual. "It's just... we've been doing the long-distance thing for so long, even before I came here, and I guess... it was just time to try something new, you know?"

"Hunh. So, everyone's okay, no one's mad, you're still friends and all?" Dinah checked, blinking a little, and then having to grin as Camille purred and closed her eyes, leaning against Jaime bonelessly. "That's... cool. Better than my last break-up and all."
