In Between the Wrong and the Right – Samuel and Saige Have a Talk, Another Night at The Rock Bottom, David Loses His Shit

Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> So talk.
Girls: 
<Taryn blinks, and looks at David>
Boys: 
<David smiles> Think he’s gonna spank her?
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Oh *this* should be *good*. <laughs> Maybe.
Boys: 
<Samuel turns toward her, letting her go, looks down at her> I’m about done playin’ games with you, little girl.


Girls: 
<Saige growls> First of all, I am *not* a little girl. Second, I’m not playin’ games.
Boys: 
<Samuel arches a brow> What else would you call it, then, darlin’? One minute you act like you wanna get me alone, the next you act like you’re scared to be alone with me. Last night, you’re all about needin’ to get to know me better, today you’re fuckin’ Aiden after a coupla hours.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him, blinks> I’m not the only one sendin’ mixed signals. You haven’t given me *any* beyond that kiss.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> All right. <looks at her> When should I be sneakin’ that in there? After you tell me how hot my best friend is and before you stand there droolin’ like an idiot over his biceps?
Boys: 
<Samuel shakes his head> I’m not the one runnin’ off fuckin’ someone else, darlin’.
Girls: 
<Saige puts her hands on her hips> Yeah.. how about the time we spent *talking* today.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at her> In the car or at the field? Because at the field, when we were talkin’ you were too busy startin’ at his ass for me to be bothered.
Girls: 
<Saige shakes her head> I was not starin’ at his ass.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> That’s right. You were starin’ at his arms. Whatever the fuck you were starin’ at, you think I wanna waste my time on a woman who’s too busy gettin’ wet over someone else to even look at me when we’re talkin’?
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Taryn> I don’t even know why they bothered leavin’ the room.
Boys: 
<David smiles at Aiden> No shit, right?
Boys: 
<Aiden, loudly> It’s not like they’re lowering their voices or anytyhing.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> Yeah.. so why’re you botherin’ *now*?
Girls: 
<Taryn laughs> Seriously.
Boys: 
<David smiles at Taryn when she laughs>
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at her> Because *now* I’ve got your fuckin’ attention.
Girls: 
<Saige arches her brow>
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles that smile> And some people seem to think you’re havin’ a hard time figurin’ out what to do with me.

Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> Oh I know what to do with you. You just don’t seem all that interested in gettin’ there.
Boys: 
<Samuel shakes his head> Shit, darlin’. I woulda been there and gone several times over if your ass could handle your weed.

Girls: 
<Saige shrugs> My ass can handle my weed just fine.. it was the 10 hour drive on two hours sleep in 36, that knocked me on my ass.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at her> Then maybe you’re gettin’ too old for this shit.
Girls: 
<Saige blinks> Oh you *Asshole*.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles that smile> Hit a nerve, darlin’?

Girls: 
<Saige pushes him back> I am *not* too old for fuck all.
Boys: 
<Samuel steps back when she pushes him, arches a brow> You feelin’ froggy? Because if you wanna fight, I’m thinkin’ that yard is plenty big enough for me to kick your ass around it a few times.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> I don’t hit *boys*.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> Then it’s a good thing there ain’t one standin’ in front of you. But I’m thinkin’ that’s what your problem *really* is. All you been playin’ with is boys. You wanna play with me, little girl?
Girls: 
<Saige arches her brow> I said as much didn’t I?
Boys: 
<Samuel gives her a long look before nodding> All right, then. Let’s play.

Girls: 
<Saige holds his look, steps toward him, puts her hand on his chest, fists her hand in his shirt and pulls>

Boys: 
<Samuel smiles, takes her head in his hands, sliding his fingers into her hair and mauls her face, walking her back against the wall as he does>
Boys: 
<Aiden takes a long drag of his cigarette, listens to the silence, looks at Taryn and David> I think we’re gonna be runnin’ a little late tonight.
Girls: 
<Taryn blinks at the sudden silence, shakes her head smiling>
Girls: 
<Saige catches his bottom lip between her teeth, sucking it, as she reaches between them, freeing him, not caring who’s nearby>
Boys: 
<Samuel moves his hands to her ass, moving them around to the back of her thighs and over her legs to her ass, pushing her skirt up in the process, pulls away from her just enough to free his lip before going in for another devastating kiss>
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles at Taryn, in his best brogue>We coods be haur aw nicht, lassie. samuel doesnae dae anythin’ quickly.
Girls: 
<Taryn blinks, and grins> Holy hell.
Boys: 
<David looks at Aiden, laughs> Or we could just meet them there.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at David, nods> Ur ye gonnae lit yer hen donner it intae ‘at corridur?
Boys: 
<David arches a brow> I have no fuckin’ idea what you just said.
Boys: 
<Aiden laughs> I asked if you were gonna let your woman walk into that hallway.
Girls: 
<Taryn shakes her head> I’m not goin’ in there. Not that I’d think they’d notice.
Boys: 
<David smiles at Taryn> He totally needs to do that at the Rock tonight. Like from the second we get there.
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles> Ah coods gab loch thes aw feckin’ nicht.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Totally. It’ll confuse the fuck out of Sang. <grins at Aiden> I bet you could, and have, and have had all the womenfolk at your feet.
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles at Taryn> Only when I’m in the mood to play around.
Girls: 
<Saige gasps as she takes Samuel in hand, searing him with her own kiss>
Girls: 
<Taryn laughs> Smoke another bowl.. you might be.
Boys: 
<Aiden laughs> Babe.. I’ve smoked two today already. You want me functioning, right?
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Yeah probably not a good idea.
Boys: 
<Aiden takes another drag> Seriously, though.. save me some time. What am I walkin’ into here? What kind of people am I gonna be dealin’ with?
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at him> Most of them are pretty friendly. The Triplets are probably the easiest to get along with. Van, Ethan and Brennan…You’ll like Brennan. Aubrey is Brennan’s girlfriend. You’ll recognize her by all the Tattoos and the blindingly blond hair, oh and the scar on her face. Siobhan is Ethan’s girl. If you watch TV you recognize her. If not she’s the one with the red hair. Seth is.. well he went with us to get Samuel, because he carries. <shrugs> He seems pretty cool when he’s not interviewing you about your No list.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at her curiously> “No list”?
Boys: 
<David nods> Shit you won’t do in the bedroom, basically. He’s a porn actor. Him and Van both. Some pretty raunchy shit, too.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Yeah.. did a movie with Saige and his wife Lia. There were things on there that I didn’t think she was capable of.
Boys: 
<David looks at Aiden> Then there’s Renee and Akhiro.. rich but cool. They pay for everything if they’re with us. Don’t even bother tryin’ to fight ’em on it. Akhiro’s of the mind that there’s no point in havin’ money if you can’t have a good time with it and sees no reason why a good time should be ruined because the rest of us might not have the cash. Ren got uppity last night, but she’s usually pretty cool. Can be a little uptight, though, but otherwise, good people. Loch’s aggressive and’ll call you an asshole to your face to get your attention. Always pissin’ the women off because they say he’s a Neanderthal. Van’s pretty laid back, but he’s.. well… he’s a nice guy but he’s a little more mature then the rest of us. Then there’s Sang’s brother Tristan. Looks kinda goth emo, but he’s one of the nice guys.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods, smiles> Yeah, I’m gonna be pissin’ some people off.
Boys: 
<David smiles> You’ll probably piss of Sang and Siobhan the most. Sang’s a feminist. Siobhan can be kinda stuck up.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods> I can handle a coupla pissed off bitches.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at David> Kinda? <smiles at Aiden> You’ll know Sang by the…blue streaked hair, dresses to show off her tattoos, which resemble Saige’s. They had them done together a few years back.. before she walked into the back room and found Saige on her knees and Loch’s dick in her mouth.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Taryn> Damn.
Boys: 
<David looks at Taryn> Yeah, okay. I was bein’ nice because you’re sittin’ here. <looks at Aiden> Woman acts like she’s above everyone else sometimes. Usually when she’s pissed off or feelin’ defensive.
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles> So, I should be ready for a boatload of that.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Sangria or Siobhan?
Boys: 
<David looks at Taryn> Siobhan. Sang doesn’t have an elitist bone in her body.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> I think it’s a defense mechanism for Siobhan.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at them> I’m gonna give you fair warning, because I’m thinkin’ you guys deserve it. Me and Samuel don’t go out of our way to piss people off, but we don’t take shit either. We say what we’re thinkin’ and it usually offends the shit out of people that don’t know us. And we’re not gonna apologize for it.
Boys: 
<Aiden shrugs> People don’t trust us, but we don’t trust them either, so fuck ’em.
Boys: 
<Samuel takes things just far enough to get Saige good and hot and bothered, steps back from her, letting her go and puts himself back together, smiles at her> The rest is gonna have to wait til later, darlin’. We got people waitin’ on us.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Taryn> And for the record.. we’re both packin’. You should probably know that too so you don’t come up surprised.
Girls: 
<Saige blinks, shakes her head, mutters> Tease.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> I figured.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> I’m not teasin’ you, darlin’. I’m just not feelin’ like this is somethin’ I wanna rush.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods, looks at David> Now give me the layout of the bar.
Boys: 
<David smiles> You walk in the front door.. bar is ahead to the right. Stage is to the left. There’s a backstage area, dressing room set up behind it. We’re the only ones that go in there. Straight ahead to the back is pool tables and darts and the bathrooms. There’s a back door into the alley. In between is all tables.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods> All right.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at David> Where’s the lot?
Boys: 
<David looks at him> Lot is to the left. The bar faces the street.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods again> How many people we talkin’ usually there on a Monday night?
Boys: 
<David smiles> Less than a hundred.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Aiden> Why?
Boys: 
<David shrugs> 4 or 5 waitresses, including Aubrey. Bartender owns the place.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Taryn> Know how people come to your house and you feel all nice and safe because it’s *your* place and you know it?
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Yes.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods, takes a drag> And know how you go into a bar or somewhere you go all the time and feel like you own the place and no one can fuck with you? <looks at her> On the opposite end of that, you walk into a place you never been and you feel like *everyone* can fuck with you.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Kinda.. I think I know..
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles> Well, I never been to this place before but I don’t feel like walkin’ in feelin’ all vulnerable and shit. <shrugs> At least with an idea of the layout and everything, I can at least be somewhat familiar. I know what my options are if shit doesn’t work out and I have to get out quickly.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> I can’ understand that.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Taryn> I was shot three times in the chest in my own goddamn alley. Paranoia kinda comes with the territory.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Aiden> I can see how it would.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods>
Boys: 
<Samuel walks into the room> Are we goin’ or what?
Boys: 
<Aiden crushes out his cigarette, nods>Yeah. I’ll give you the rundown in the car. <gets up and walks over to him> Thought it was gonna take you a little longer.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> It will later when I’ve got a little longer to take.
Girls: 
<Saige walks into the room after taking a moment to fix herself>
Boys: 
<Aiden nods> All right. Well.. I promised Taryn I’d do the dishes. So.. clear the food while I do that and we can go after the kitchen’s done.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Taryn> Borrowed your bathroom and makeup.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> All right.
Girls: 
<Taryn shrugs> I figured.
Boys: 
<Aiden gets on the dishes while Samuel takes care of clearing the table>
Boys: 
<David helps Samuel>
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at them, smiles and starts putting the food away, while Saige jumps on drying and putting away the dishes>
Boys: 
<Samuel looks over at Taryn> What do you think you’re doin’? Ass to the chair, darlin’. You did the cookin’.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Uh.. helpin’. <shrugs> I figured the more of us doin’ the less time it’ll take.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> All right. But next time we’re not in a hurry, you just let us take care of it.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Promise.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods> Where we come from, if you cook, you don’t have to clean.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles, goes back to what he was doing>
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> I like that one. <looks at Saige, shrugs> I’m just so used to doing both…
Boys: 
<David smiles> Aunt Jamie’d probably have my ass if I let you do both.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Okay..
Boys: 
<Aiden looks over at Taryn from the sink> Yeah, see.. where we’re from.. the reason the people that cook do is because the rest of us can’t cook worth a fuck. So, we’d be stuck with takeout tacos 3 meals a day without ’em. We kinda have to do this because if we don’t, we’re just moochin’ motherfuckers.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> And usually when we’re sittin’ down at a table eatin’ a real meal, it’s because we’re at someone else’s house.

Girls: 
<Taryn shakes her head as she puts the food in the fridge and goes back to the table pushes in the chairs> I can see that.. I try to help when I’m at someone’s house.
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles> And it’s why we usually bring the beer. Because it’s enough that they’re feedin’ us. You do somethin’ for me, I’ll do somethin’ for you is pretty much what makes our world go round. Don’t do shit for me and I won’t do shit for you either. That kinda thing.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Saige pointedly> Freeloaders aren’t welcome.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Aiden> I’m not freeloadin’.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods> Then what the hell are ya doin’? You think your sister doesn’t have better shit to do than cater to your ass? Tonight’s the first night you’ve washed a dish in however long? Seriously? What? Afraid you’re gonna break a nail?
Boys: 
<Aiden shrugs> There’s a lot more to runnin’ a house than just payin’ the bills. Shit doesn’t clean itself.
Girls: 
<Saige shakes her head> No.. *she* won’t let me..because *she’s* incredibly….anal about her dishes.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods> All right. *That* I can understand. You’re forgiven.
Boys: 
<David looks over at Taryn, smiles>
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Saige> I told you one time I had them and you never offered again. <Taryn smiles at David> She’s right though I’m anal about them which is why I have that state of the art dishwasher.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks over at Taryn> Babe.. I got three sets of dishes unopened in storage so if one gets cracked or broken, I can replace the fuckin’ set. Because if I know I’m missin’ one or they don’t match.. I can’t funcition.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Taryn> And he goes through sponges like you wouldn’t believe. Has to open a new one every time he does dishes.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles at Aiden> I think my problem is I don’t think anyone can get them as clean as I can. <looks at Saige> That comes from eatin’ at Grands and Papa’s.
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles> I *know* no one can get ’em as clean as I can. I see dirt and shit other people don’t even notice. Gotta hold the dish at an angle so the light hits it just right so I can make sure there’s nothin’ left on it before I consider it done.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles at Aiden> And the angle changes depending on the light source.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> He gets blood on his wall and he’s gotta repaint the whole damn apartment just to make sure all the walls are the exact same shade of white.
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles again, nods> That’s right.
Boys: 
<to Taryn>
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Oh god.. I remember it was like they didn’t do them before puttin
Girls: 
‘ them away.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods to Saige and looks at Aiden> Wow. No fighting in your place.
Boys: 
<David listens to Taryn and Aiden go back and forth>
Boys: 
<Aiden nods to Taryn> So.. imagine what it was like after me and Samuel got into it there.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Had to repaint. The whole damn place.
Boys: 
<Aiden shakes his head> And my ex throws that ashtray and I start cleanin’ the mess and she comes over tryin’ to tell me she’s got it so we’re fightin’ about what we were fightin’ about to begin with while cleanin’ up this fuckin’ ashtray and on top of *that* we’re fightin’ over who’s gonna clean the shit up.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at David and smiles>
Boys: 
<David smiles at Taryn> I didn’t realize *you* were so OCD.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at David, shrugs> I’m not about most things.. but my kitchen where we eat and prepare food… yeah totally.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> She’s not as bad as our mom though.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> And he’s got a closet full of white t-shirts. One gets dingy, it goes. One gets a stain, it goes. He won’t even bother bleachin’ that shit because he *knows* that stain is still in there lurkin’ in the fibers where he can’t see it or sme shit.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Samuel> Hey.. I *know* that shit is.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Replace the carpets instead of clean them?
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles at Taryn, starts to say something when Aiden cuts him off> I don’t have carpet. I have hardwood.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Yeah.. sealed? Because if not you gotta replace that too.
Boys: 
<Samuel laughs> Hell.. the ex redecorated. He had to leave the apartment and not come back til it was done and she couldn’t even tell him she was gonna do it.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods to Taryn> Damn right.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> When I had this place redone back to the original.. I had to decide all of that. <looks at Saige, smiles> She paid a decorator to do her place.
Boys: 
<Aiden shakes his head> I was perfectly fine with my white walls, white towels and everything else. But.. yanno.. she needed to feel like she had some stake in it, too.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> I can see that.. and white does get to feel sterile after a while.
Boys: 
<Samuel nodded> I don’t think that girl ever did truly appreciate what it took for Aiden to give her the go to change shit.
Boys: 
<Aiden finishes the dishes, dries his hands on a towel, nods to Samuel>
Girls: 
<taryn smiles at Samuel, to Aiden> Did you like it when she was done or did it make you nuts?
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Taryn> It made me nuts the first coupla days. I had to get used to it. That’s why I told her to just do what she was gonna do when I was gone and not tell me. Easier to come back to it done then to know ahead of time and slowly lose my shit over a few days.
Boys: 
<the boys look around when the kitchen’s finished, Aiden nods> *Now* we can go.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Yes we can.
Girls: 
<Saige grins>
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles at the girls> Then let’s get to gettin’. Get to walkin’ so we can get to watchin’.
Girls: 
<Saige heads for the door, while Taryn heads for David>
Boys: 
<David takes Taryn’s hand, heads out with the others>
