Apr. 1st, 2006 @ 02:09 am Mitch & Max - The Prequel - part 1
It was a bright afternoon in early September. The sunlight was strong, warm enough to echo the summer just gone, but a breeze rustled through the leaves that were just starting to turn yellow. It was the first day of the Autumn Term at Academie le Tour. The tree-lined campus was packed full of buses, bringing excited students back to their friends after the long vacation. Cars were everywhere, overflowing the car parks and abandoned on roads; driven by anxious parents, taking their young people to college for the first time.

Mitch Indie believed strongly in the power of fate. He knew full well that he was only able to attend the prestigious Academie thanks to a bursary that paid his fees and a small stipend. Unlike most of his peers, Mitch was poor, dirt poor. While the other students had rich families for support, Mitch didn't even have parents, let alone a family.

Embarrassed to be caught dancing by his new roommate, he was even more embarrassed by the blush that was spreading all over his cheeks. Arrested in his tracks, he stared at Max, and his mouth dropped open.

Their moving in progressed. Done with his own bags, Mitch helped Max unpack. Max was bitterly regretting bringing the trunk from boarding school days, emblazoned with his initials and house emblem. He thought everyone at college would have one, but he was so obviously wrong. Though Mitch had few clothes, they were all interesting - decorated in some way, with fancy coloured stitching, buttons or graffiti. Max was only too aware of the fashion disasters lurking in the depths of his trunk. After a while, he stopped Mitch from going any further. "That's OK", he grinned, while thinking it was not okay at all. "I've got enough clothes out now for a couple of weeks."
