It made Elena feel very happy, the idea that she had a friend like Rorie was heartwarming, she was a great band leader. Rorie had lots of good ideas, she was brilliant as far as Elena knew, so Elena knew that the assignment would work out well. Which means that they could have a lot of fun doing it.

I have a great time in band with you, it’s really fun.” Elena grinned at Rorie, "I'd be happy to draw some of the slides, me and my friends used to do sketched to make some extra cash. I also have some cookies in my dorm, my friend Maria made them, I could go grab them if you want?"
