Shelby learns just what it takes to join a lesbian sorority.
Being a freshman, she’s never rushed for a sorority before. Even being a cheerleader for two years didn’t prepare her for this. She’s heard rumors of what goes on behind closed doors, but she dismisses them as just that…rumors. There’s no way they’re true.
She’s never touched another girl before, and she certainly doesn’t consider herself a lesbian, but rushing for this particular sorority opens her up to new experiences. This is one night she’ll never forget.
(This explicit, 5,700 word story is intended for adult readers only)
Well this was a rush with a difference. There are clearly no boundaries between the sorority sisters of Aeaea House. As close as they can get you might say. You can see why their traditions have been kept a secret all this time.
So you have some fresh-faced freshman coming to rush at Aeaea House. A house for sisters, the most coveted on the cul-de-sac. Shelby and Annie are kind of like rabbits caught in headlights when they first enter the house, like many others. If they weren’t nervous before though then they soon will be when the different ‘tasks’ are put to them. Talk about diving in head first, quite literally with some of the things they get the freshers to do. Nothing illegal though, everything’s consensual in this house with each task being a little different than the one before. A kiss might be how it starts for her with the sorority president but things quickly escalate. The overall gist about whether you move on to the next round or not depend solely on when you come in relation to others. Intrigued? You will definitely be asking yourself how badly do these girls want to get into this house? After each round the ones who failed to pass the test have to leave. All Shelby wants to know is whether Annie got through each round like her. A bond has been formed quickly with all the strangeness of the evening unfolding around them. They want to be close to each other for support, whether others like it or not.
You have an interesting mix of characters throughout. From the ones who have seen it all to the freshmen trying to get into the house. It’s funny how calm they are when explaining each test, like it’s the most natural thing in the world to be doing. Seems hidden desires might be making an appearance for Shelby, whether she will continue with them is something else entirely. If nothing else she has made a new friend, one she will be allowed to talk to about the craziness that happen the night they tried to get into Aeaea House.
