i feel like geno doesn't sleep while studying for midterms/finals and one night he actually falls asleep sitting down at the couch in the commons area downstairs. the pledges are all standing deciding who's going to wake up the grizzly bear when sid just casually walks up to the couch and starts shaking geno awake. the pledges are too paralyzed with fear to yell at sidney to stop.
“G, go sleep in your bed,” Sidney says,, ignoring Jake and Conor frantically waving silently for Sidney to stop.
Geno opens his eyes, and Olli actually leaves the room to hide in the kitchen. But Geno doesn’t make that growling noise he usually does when someone wakes him up. He just…whines.
“Do I have to?” he asks.
“Yes, you have to,” Sidney says. “I’ll wake you up at 6 tomorrow, promise. You’ll remember more things.”
“Okay,” Geno says, then heads up to his room with Sidney sluggishly, as Sidney rubs his back.
Jake and Conor stare at the retreating couple, then at each other, then at the empty staircase again.
