The random was welcome right now. Elphaba had been a little more reclusive than usual recently, or at the very least less talkative. She'd had a lot on her mind, and had spent a lot of time in the library reading or just staying in her room. Of course, she did come out and talk to her roommates every so often just so they wouldn't come break down her door wondering if she was alive or not. When it came to brooding, Elphaba had a monopoly. She didn't really do perky or random, but when faced with it, she tended to just roll with it. She'd lived with Galinda long enough to know that going with the flow tended to just be easier.
Elphaba listened as Bonnie described Mystic Falls. It sounded like a nice place to live. It seemed to be so different from Munchkinland, yet at the same time, perhaps not too different. Though the childhood home Elphaba had known wasn't nearly as friendly to her as Bonnie's had been. "So you all were interconnected. Where is Mystic Falls?" While she wasn't from this world, Elphaba had been getting to know her geography, especially of the United States. Even now, Elphaba still had a thirst for knowledge and studied up on things.
At hearing Bonnie question about having a sleepover, Elphaba paused in her undressing. She glanced over her shoulder at her younger friend for a moment before resuming what she'd been doing. "Unless having a roommate at school counts, no I haven't had a sleepover. I didn't have a friend until I was 20. Well, not a human friend anyway. All I did was take care of my sister." Again she paused, looking down at the floor. Elphaba felt so guilty for having turned her back on her sister and leaving her to die. Shaking her head, Elphaba quickly got rid of the rest of her clothes, then turned her attention to the bath full of bubbles. The darker, sadder thoughts quickly were pushed from her mind as she made a face, not wanting to get into the water. She wrapped her arms around her bare middle and wondered just how long she could stand there and get away with not getting in the tub.
