Love Can Endure – Or Can it? Later at the Bar, Tristan Makes a Date, Renee Loses Her Shit

Girls: 
<Aubrey works the tables, while Renee, Sang, Siobhan, and Saige Sit at a group of pushed together tables shooting the shit>
Boys: 
<David and Taryn head inside and to the table to find the regulars already there>
Boys: 
<the usual pitchers of beer and glasses already on the table>
Boys: 
<David sits down and pours a beer for him and Taryn before pulling her down into his lap, smiles at the others> S’up?
Girls: 
<Taryn gets comfortable>
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> Not much, man. What’s goin’ on?
Boys: 
<David shrugs> Not much. Just found out who Samuel’s daddy is.
Girls: 
<Aubrey walks over and drops some more pretzels and peanuts on the table>


Boys: 
<Ethan arches a brow> So.. fill us in.
Boys: 
<David smiles> Bill. As in.. Uncle Bill.
Boys: 
<Brennan blinks> No way.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Uh huh I was there.
Boys: 
<Akhiro arches a brow> That must’ve been a surprise.
Girls: 
<Renee nods> Seriously. A huge one. Are you guys all right.
Boys: 
<David nods> Oh, it was. Jamie didn’t even know it was a possibility. And I’m pretty sure Samuel didn’t either. <looks at Ren> Shit. Why wouldn’t we be? It’s kind of a fuckin’ relief, actually.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> Seriously. At least Uncle Bill isn’t a raging psychopath.
Boys: 
<David nods> Exactly.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> True. And he’s cool.
Boys: 
<David nods> And Bree and Samuel picked up the camper today. They’re gonna be stayin’ in it on their property til the barn’s built.
Boys: 
<Brennan smiles broadly> *The* camper?
Boys: 
<David smiles> The one and only.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Yeah.. I saw that.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at David> *Their* property?
Boys: 
<David nods again> Yeah. Now that they’re back together, he’s puttin’ her on the deed.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at David> He is?
Boys: 
<David nods> She’s gonna buy into the ranch as a partner.
Boys: 
<Tristan looks at David> That’s kind of sudden if they *just* got back together.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> But they have history.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> All he’s doing is putting her on the deed. Aiden married Ava like.. two days after *they* got back together.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> And they *look* really happy. Content even.
Boys: 
<Tristan nods> But they at least *spoke* to each other first. Bree and Samuel haven’t said one word to each other that we’ve seen. Well.. up until getting back together, apparently.
Boys: 
<David nods to Taryn, looks at Tristan> They’re talkin’ now. And from where I’m standin’, it’s like Taryn says.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> Okay. So where *are* they?
Boys: 
<David smiles> Right about now, they’ve got a campfire goin’ and they’re makin’ s’mores or roasting hot dogs and borin’ the shit out of each other.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> or fucking.
Boys: 
<David smiles at Taryn> And there’s that.
Girls: 
<Taryn grins>
Girls: 
<Saige looks at them> He told me, while we were talking that his Ex might show up here.
Boys: 
<David nods to Saige> Yeah. Tell them that story.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Apparently when he and Bree were together before the ex who wasn’t the ex then but wanted on him was fucking with Bree. Telling her all kinds of shit that wasn’t true. Then he and Bree break up and Dee that’s the ex and he hook up end up together because he rescued her from the neighbor who was a psycho and ended up living together and the whole time they’re together Dee’s rubbing Bree’s nose in it. Anyway they’re expecting her to show up here when she finds out that He and Bree are back together, in raging cunt mode. She’s armed and dangerous and probably carries in her boot or waistband.
Boys: 
<David nods> And apparently delusional because she was tellin’ Bree just a few days ago that Samuel was gonna be sendin’ for her and they were gonna start a new life together somewhere else.
Girls: 
<Saige nods>
Boys: 
<Akhiro arches a brow> Jesus. Do *any* of these people not carry guns?
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Akhiro, smiles> Don’t worry, honey. I’ve got mine. I’ll protect you.
Boys: 
<Akhiro smiles at Seth, flips him off> Bite me.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Saige> Psycho stalker ex? Damn. That sounds familiar.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Van > It does?

Boys: 
<Van looks at Saige, smiles> That girl you had to run off?
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> Right. <Smiles> Apparently I’m doin’ it again.
Boys: 
<Van smiles more broadly> Fuck. I guess you are.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at David> So what does this chick look like?
Boys: 
<David looks at Loch> Remember the flyers of the strippers? The blonde with the wicked witch eyebrows?
Boys: 
<Loch rolls his eyes> Shoulda figured that one out.

Girls: 
<Sangria laughs> Shit.. She just looked evil.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Van> I’m going to see if tomorrow instead of him beating me with balls all morning he’ll show me how to disarm her.. <smiles> You know on the off chance she’s able to pull her gun.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Saige, laughs> Baby.. Akhiro and Tristan could teach you that.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Yes they could. <looks at them>
Boys: 
<David smiles at Loch and the others> In cooler news, they’re gonna call their ranch the Southern Cross. Which is cool, because it’s one of his favorite songs *and* he’s Southern *and* his last name is Cross. <grins> Oh, hey. And so is mine.
Boys: 
<Akhiro nods to Saige> We could go out back and do it.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles at David> Clever.
Boys: 
<David laughs, nods> Yeah. It was Bree’s idea.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Yes please.
Boys: 
<Akhiro nods, looks at Ren> The sooner the better. <leans over and kisses her> We’ll be back in a couple of minutes.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Well *that’s* good to know.
Girls: 
<Renee smiles>
Boys: 
<David smiles at Taryn>
Boys: 
<Akhiro gets up and waits for Saige>
Girls: 
<Renee looks at Taryn> Did you seriously not know?
Girls: 
<Saige kisses Van> I’ll be back in a few.
Boys: 
<David looks at Ren, laughs> Babe.. the preacher announced it. And we’ve known each other forever. If she didn’t.. I don’t even wanna think about what that means.
Girls: 
<Saige stands and goes over to Akhiro>
Boys: 
<Van kisses her back, nods> All right.
Boys: 
<Akhiro takes her outside where they practice for a few minutes>
Girls: 
<Renee looks at David> Right.. <shakes her head>Sorry.
Boys: 
<David looks at Taryn, arches a brow> Seriously? You didn’t know my.. *our*.. last name?
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Of course I did.
Boys: 
<David laughs> Thank god.
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles> She used to write it all over her notebooks in school.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Sangria>
Girls: 
<Sangria laughs> I heart David Cross.
Boys: 
<David smiles at Taryn> Really?
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Yeah. I did. <sighs and smiles> I really hate you right now Sang.
Boys: 
<David, still smiling> Did you do that thing girls do and write your name with my last name like you were imaginin’ we were gonna get married?
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at David nods> Yeah… <Sangria bursts out laughing> Taryn I had those SMASH books, and you *always* Answered David, for the guy you’d marry.
Boys: 
<David nods, smiles again> Yeah, well.. one day I was bored at work that summer and I pulled out my pocket knife and assaulted an innocent tree. <looks at her> You can *still* see our initials on it.
Girls: 
<Taryn blinks> You can? You totally have to show me.
Boys: 
<David laughs> All right. But anyone calls me a fag and they’re gonna have to disarm *me*.
Boys: 
<Tristan laughs> Please. <smiles> It’s not like no guy in the history of the world has ever done that.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Anyone calls you a fag and I’ll punch ’em. That’s so.. sweet.
Boys: 
<David rolls his eyes, laughs> Here we go.
Girls: 
<Nikki walks in and over to the bar>
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles at Tristan> Who’s did you carve?
Boys: 
<Tristan looks at Sang, smiles> My first girlfriend. I don’t even remember her name now but I was so stoked a girl even got with me, I couldn’t stand it.
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles> A true romantic.
Boys: 
<Tristan laughs> Hey. I am. Usually. <smiles> I’d do it *now* with the right girl and then take her and show her.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> Yeah. Because she’s gotta see it, man. That’s a guaranteed lay right there.
Boys: 
<Van laughs> Speaking of true romantics.
Girls: 
<Aubrey walks over and sits a drink in front of Tristan>
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles> Neanderthal.
Boys: 
<Ethan shake his head, smiling> We try to be hard but a hot girl smiles at us and we collapse into total mush.
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles at Aubrey> Thanks.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Sang> I’ll do it for you and you will totally fuck me right there at the bottom of the tree.
Girls: 
<Aubrey smiles> Water. <leans in and whispers> From the girl at the bar.
Boys: 
<Brennan smiles> Pffft. Sang’s a guaranteed lay for *you* if you don’t even get out of the lazy boy and tell her to bring you a beer.
Girls: 
<Sangria laughs> Probably. But not because you carved an innocent tree.
Boys: 
<Tristan looks over at the bar, smiles seeing Nikki, grabs the glass and carries it over>
Girls: 
<Aubrey drops into Tristan’s vacated chair>
Boys: 
<Ethan laughs> Seriously. The only guy in the world who could sit in front of the tv with a beer in one hand, a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and his other hand down the front of his boxers belching the alphabet and still manage to get Sang hot.
Girls: 
<Nikki watches Tristan walk over to her and smiles>
Boys: 
<Loch laughs> Hey. I’m not *that* bad. <smiles> I keep my socks on.
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles> He does not belch the alphabet. only half.
Girls: 
<Renee laughs> That’s so gross.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Sang> Oh, come on. I’m not *that* bad. That was my old man.
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles> True you aren’t you do put the cigarette in the ashtray. <Laughs playfully> Especially after the cherry fell off that one time and burned you.
Boys: 
<Loch shakes his head> *And*.. I’ll actually get my own beer.
Girls: 
<Sangria nods> Yes you do. <looks at him, leans in and kisses him> I love you.
Boys: 
<Loch kisses her back, smiles> I love you, too.
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles at Nikki as he stops next to her at the bar> So…. we’re not having a party, or a wedding and we’re not celebrating a wedding. You want to come hang out with us tonight? <leans over and kisses her on the cheek, whispers in her ear> If you keep saying no, I’m going to get discouraged.
Girls: 
<Nikki smiles> Sure. I’ll come over. <pulls back and looks at him>
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles> Cool.
Girls: 
<Nikki grabs her drink and orders a round for the table, quietly> David and Taryn look happy.
Boys: 
<Tristan looks over at the table, smiles> Yeah, they do. <looks at her> And his brother got back together with his ex. Rumor has it they’re looking pretty happy, too.
Girls: 
<Nikki smiles> That’s cool. I was going to call you and ask you to dinner… <looks back at him> But I didn’t want to be too forward.
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles> So, how about *I* ask *you* to dinner instead?
Girls: 
<Nikki smiles> I’d like that.
Boys: 
<Tristan nods> Cool. <leans on the bar on his elbows, looks at her>One of my dirty little secrets is that I’m not a half bad cook.
Girls: 
<Nikki laughs> Oh Really? Men that can cook are incredibly sexy.
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles> It’s actually something I like to do to wind down. So, how about tomorrow night? Akhiro will be here with everyone else so we’ll have the place to ourselves.
Girls: 
<Nikki nods> Yes, I would enjoy that. Can I bring anything?
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles> Nope. Just you.
Girls: 
<Nikki smiles> All right. <stands>
Boys: 
<Tristan pushes away from the bar, takes her hand and heads back to the table>
Girls: 
<Nikki goes with him, as she wraps her fingers over the back of his hand>
