When Bryce Perle reported on the first day of his k**b year, he was paired with Earl Cobb. Not unlike most roommates they had some adjusting to do, and for some reason they got off to a rocky start.

“How you doing,” Perle said as he held his hand out to his new roommate. “I’m Bryce Perle.”

“I’m Earl Cobb.”

“Where are you from?”

“Bull swamp,” Earl drawled as he swung his suitcase up onto the top rack.

“Where’s Bull Swamp?”

“A few miles north of Wolfton.

“Where’s Wolfton?”

“Just east of Livingston.”

“Well where’s Livingston?”

“North of Neeses.” Earl was starting to get irritated. “Where are you from?”

“Glynn County.”

“Where’s that?”

“Georgia,” Perle said as he reached for Earl’s luggage.

“I never heard of … hey what’re you doing?” Earl said as he held his hand against his suitcase.

“The top bunk’s mine.”

“Says who?”

“Says me. I like to sleep up in the air.”

“Why didn’t you bring a hammock?”

“How about moving your gear,” Perle said as he gave Earl’s suitcase another yank.

Earl held both hands against his suitcase. “How ‘bout you leave my stuff alone?”

“How about you make me?”

“I would but I won’t on account of it’d be too easy and it might mess up your pretty hair.”

Perle pushed Earl away, grabbed the suitcase and dropped it on the floor.

Earl bounced back and pushed Perle to the windows.

And then they were off. It wasn’t a fistfight. It was more like a slow motion Sumo match … between a couple of skinny white boys. Perle wrapped his arms around his country roommate’s waist and tried to push him back but Earl slammed him into the windows. With his hand splayed-out on Earl’s face Perle grimaced and shoved Earl’s head back. Finally Earl had had enough. Grabbing a handful of hair, he slammed Perle’s head backward into one of the glass panes, shattering it with a loud crash.

Outside the room, a cadre corporal had been making his way down the gallery checking the door cards. Hearing the commotion, he je**ed the screen door thumbed the latch and kicked the main door open.

“What the hell is going on in here?”

It was only the first day and neither k**b had learned to brace yet. But they knew enough to come to attention.

“Well?” the corporal yelled as he pushed Perle to the side and examined the broken glass. “Who did this?”

Neither k**b spoke. Patting his clipboard against his palm, the corporal sucked his cheeks in and narrowed his eyes. “You’re getting off to a bad start, k**bs. Take my word for it. If there’s one thing neither of you want on the first day it’s to make a bad impression. Bad first impressions are harder to get rid of than bad breath after you eat a sh-t sandwich. Now which one of you broke that window?”

“I did it sir,” Perle said as he felt a drop of blood trickle down the back of his neck.

“What happened?”

“Sir … I stumbled into it sir.”

“Stumbled? How’d you manage that?”

Earl held up a hand. “Sir I caused it sir.”

“YOU caused it?”

“Sir yes sir.”

“Would you mind telling me how?”

“He’s wrong sir. I did it,” Perle said.

“No sir, I did it,” Earl corrected.

Perle shook his head. “Sir it didn’t happen that way.”

“Oh yes it did,” Earl said as he looked at his roommate.

“BOTH OF YOU SHUT UP! I’m only gonna ask this one more time. Which one of you idiots broke that window?”

“I did it sir,” Both of them said in unison.

Looking back and forth at the two k**b recruits the corporal finally chuckled at them: “Okay k**bs. I’ll accept that. Both of you did it.”

As he sauntered back to the door he added, “It’s good to stick together on the first day like that, k**bs. Better for class unity.” Looking at Earl he said, “But I’d wash that blood off of your hand if I were you.” As the country boy looked down at the knuckles on his right hand, the corporal turned to Perle and smiled, “And wipe that blood off of your neck.”

“But both of you remember this: if you start out with little stupid things, they’ll turn into big stupid habits, and stupid k**bs always get the crap racked out of them. Consider this your one and only freebie. If you ever pull a stunt like this again, God help you.”

He looked down at his clipboard. “I’ll file an OS&D report and state the cause as … ‘terminal stupidity and the start of a lifelong friendship.’” The screen door slammed as the corporal left the room.

Relaxing, both k**bs looked at the broken window. “Shouldn’t be too hard for them to fix,” Perle said.

“I wouldn’t think so. Just a little piece of … say that’s a pretty bad scratch on the back of your neck.”

“Yeah?”

“Yeah. I’ll get you a towel buddy.

”I KNEW I was gonna like you.”

Let the Citadel's Rutledge Street mural be a reminder, especially on the anniversary of the Emanuel tragedy, to honor the memory of those who were killed and to lift up our community with hope and action for a stronger Charleston that has no room for hatred.

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: LILLY LAYDEN

Lilly graduates with a Fine Arts minor and a double STEM major which she says shows that she is not just "book smart" but also has a creative, outgoing, and well-rounded personality. She focused on theatre and choir, performing in Barracks to Broadway and the Christmas Candlelight Service.

Lilly will commission as an Air Force officer and credits her Fine Arts training as crucial in learning how to work with large groups, literally finding harmony to create a positive outcome. Her mantra is "practice makes perfect" and she is an outstanding example of dedication and creativity.

Congratulations from the whole Fine Arts program, @lillylayden -- we can't wait to see what amazing things you do next!
