So I’d Know Yesterday Was Over – the Divas Stir Shit Up

Boys: 
<Loch pushes open the door to Splash Panic and walks in with his arm around Saige>
Girls: 
<Renee working on cashing out the day, looks up, smiles> Hey. <takes in the sight before her of Saige and Loch with their arms around each other> What’s up?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Nothin’. I just need a new shirt. My other one got…<looks at Loch> ripped.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Ren and heads over to her, looks at Saige> We had a little.. incident.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Ren thoughtfully> I wouldn’t call it an “accident”…
Boys: 
<Loch smiles again> But definitely an incident.


Girls: 
<Saige moves over to a rack and starts looking for something to wear> No definitely not an accident. <smiles as she holds up a shirt to her front, shakes her head and puts it back>
Girls: 
<Renee arches her brow and smiles at Loch> Soo.. what happened?
Girls: 
<Saige finds something and heads to the fitting room>
Boys: 
<Loch walks over and leans against the counter the register’s on, watching Saige, to Ren> Oh, you know. She fell on my couch and I fell on her and somewhere in the scuffle… <shrugs> Shit happens.
Girls: 
<Renee blinks> Seriously?
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> Would I joke about somethin’ like that?
Girls: 
<Renee shakes her head> No I guess you wouldn’t. <looks over at the fitting room when Saige comes out wearing a black and blue bustier that’s more mesh than fabric, Saige looks at Loch> Yes?
Boys: 
<Loch looks over at Saige, looks her over, smiles slowly> Oh, yeah.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles and walks over to Loch, handing him his shirt> I knew you’d like it. <Hands Renee the tag> I’ll take it.
Girls: 
<Renee takes the tag and gets to ringing the shirt up> So what are you guys up to tonight?
Boys: 
<Loch takes his shirt back, leans in and kisses her neck, inhales deeply, whispers but not so low that Ren can’t make out the words> You smell like me. <looks over at Ren> We’re goin’ to the bar.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles and leans into Loch, softly> I *like* smelling like you. <Renee blinks, watches the exchange as Saige turns toward Loch and Wraps her arms around him, Renee hands Saige the receipt> I put it on your account. Looks at Loch.. I guess I don’t have to ask how you’re doing?
Boys: 
<Loch wraps his arms around Saige, looks over at Ren> I’m fine. <looks back at Saige> Kinda feel like things are the way they’re supposed to be now.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Like you were playing house with Sang?
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> Somethin’ like that, yeah.
Girls: 
<Renee looks at Loch> I don’t even know what to say to that.
Girls: 
<Renee smiles> I’m glad you’re okay, though.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Ren> Saige is mine. She’s always *been* mine. Now that Sang’s out of the picture, I’m doin’ somethin’ about it. In the meantime.. Did you hear Van outted Ethan to Sang? Or that Van fucked Siobhan the other night? And apparently, Seth and Lia had a fight and she’s staying at Van’s.
Boys: 
<Loch gives her a cool look> I don’t think he’ll miss her.
Girls: 
<Renee shakes her head> No.. I didn’t. Wait.. *Saige* has always been yours? Explain that.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Saige, smiles> I thought that was pretty self explanatory.

Girls: 
<Saige nods and smiles back at Loch, then over at Ren> So did I. It’s to Rocket Science, Ren.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Ren> Come on, Ren. People can’t be that blind. Hell.. just the other night everyone was talkin’ about how theyd’ put us together. We just came up with it a lot earlier.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Loch> I’m done if you are.
Girls: 
<Renee looks at Loch> Then why’d you fight so hard to get Sang back?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> That’s easy…<looks at Loch>
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Saige> Go ahead, baby.
Girls: 
<Saige shrugs> To prove he could.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Ren, shrugs> That reason’s as good as any.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> And the only one that matters. <looks at Ren>
Girls: 
<Renee blinks and looks at Saige> And What about You and David and You and Van. What were they…Filler? Distractions until Loch was ready for you?
Boys: 
<Loch shakes his head> Ren.. come on. Everyone knew what David was. <looks at her> You guys said it yourselves. He was the closest she could get to *me*.
Girls: 
<Saige shakes her head> David and I are friends and have been. And Did you miss the make out session and disappearance of my boyfriend and Lia last night or the fact that he fucked Siobhan. *Really*?
Boys: 
<Loch nods> Or how quickly Sang ended our relationship just because we were *talking* to each other? How about the fact *she’s* at Ethan’s? And whatever you wanna say about me, you *know* I busted my ass to make her happy and make shit right. And you saw how little that shit mattered last night.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Ren> You *saw* what she made me go through, Ren.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Saige, to Ren> So, I’m sorry if I’m takin’ advantage of the fact that I can breathe again, but I am and fuck what anyone else thinks.
Girls: 
<Renee looks at Loch> I *know* you did. <shakes her head> Look I’m not judging. You guys are my friends just as much as Sang is. And Yeah.. she did go off half cocked. I’ve tried calling and her phone’s off, or she’s rejecting calls. If you guys are happy that’s what matters.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Saige> Are you happy, baby?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> I am. Only one thing could make me happier right now.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> What’s that?
Girls: 
<Saige grins> Jaeger bombs.
Boys: 
<Loch laughs> Yes. <smiles at Saige> That’s my girl. <pulls her closer, looks at Ren> Look.. last night, I didn’t have the first clue what happened or what I was gonna do. Then I woke up this afternoon and saw Saige there and suddenly, everything was crystal clear. I’m fine. This isn’t rebound. This is the way things are supposed to be and should’ve been in the first place. So, yeah. I’m happy.
Girls: 
<Renee nods and smiles> Then I won’t say another thing.
Girls: 
<Saige drapes herself over Loch>
Boys: 
<Loch nods> All right. <looks at Saige, smiles> Let’s go get fucked up.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Yes! And then fuck.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles again> Yeah, like we need to plan that shit. <lets her go, puts his arm around her again and heads toward the door, waves over his shoulder> We’ll see you later, Ren.
Girls: 
<Renee watches them, Saige tucks her hand into Lochs back pocket again>
Girls: 
<Renee> See you later. <waves>
Boys: 
<Loch stops at the door, looks back at Ren> By the way.. Ethan’s favorite position? *Highly* recommended.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles and nods> Oh yeah… totally.
Girls: 
<Renee smiles and shakes her head)>

Boys: 
<Loch heads outside with Saige, waits til they’re at the curb> And she’s texting *now*.
Girls: 
<Renee sends a blanket text to everyone telling them what just happened>
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> Oh my god though.. you could see her putting shit together.
Boys: 
<Loch shakes his head> She’s so fuckin’ diplomatic.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at her> You know.. when she’s *not* tellin’ all her friends to get fucked.
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> Right. Diplomatic? That was her having no clue what to do with it.
Boys: 
<Loch shakes his head> I’m talkin’ about the little speech about how all that matters is we’re happy.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Yeah.. right. If that were the case she woulda smiled and been all “Finally. It’s about fucking time. ”
Boys: 
<Loch nods> No shit.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at her> *Especially* after what you said about me just provin’ I could get Sang back.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> Like they’re all going to do for Ethan and Sang.
Boys: 
<Loch nods again> Seriously. <shakes his head> What do you expect, though? It’s Sang and Ethan who can do no wrong. You heard Ren. “She did go off half cocked”. Half cocked? Really? She went off the fuckin’ *chain. <looks at her> This is the same girl that was pushin’ me to marry her and then, suddenly, we’re done. Over *nothing*. Oh.. and after I give up *my* apartment and move in with her. Half cocked, my ass. If Tony had rented my place out, I’d be fucked and sleepin’ on someone’s couch.
Boys: 
<Loch shakes his head> With *that* kind of reaction over just talkin’ to someone, why *wouldn’t* I be fuckin’ around?
Boys: 
<Loch looks at her> Especially after all the ways I kissed her ass and for as long.
Girls: 
<Saige shakes her head> Seriously. Besides, like you said.. I give a fuck what the everyone thinks. You’re not the bad guy this time. <smiles> You’re the one they should all be circling around. You’re the one that was wronged. Not her. She did go off over nothing. Like she was just waiting for the opportunity. She didn’t give you a chance to explain fuck all. She walked up on us in attack mode and they only one’s that saw it were you, me, her and Tristan. And maybe.. *maybe* it looked bad from where she was standin’. but Christ Loch.. we had more on then anyone else there. You know.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> That’s what I’m sayin’. But they’re not circling their wagons around *me* because I’m the guy that fucked her over in the first place so it’s my fault she overreacted to begin with. Because if she hadn’t caught *us*, she wouldn’t’ve immediately assumed we were pickin’ up where we left off. <looks at her> Well, now we’re gonna show them *exactly* where we left off and what pickin’ up from there looks like and fuck anyone who doesn’t like it. *I* like it. And this time, that’s all I’m givin’ a fuck about. I did my time. I took my never fucking ending punishment. I’m done.
Girls: 
<Saige quietly> I like *this* you, much better than the you that you were with Sang.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> I like this *you* much better than the you that you are with Van.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> We bring out the…best in each other. <grins> Even if everyone thinks it’s the worst.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> They just don’t appreciate us, baby. That’s why we need each other.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> And I didn’t realize just how much.. until I was sitting there and realized I needed to see *you* *now*. You know.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> It would’ve happened one way or another.
Girls: 
<Saige tilts her head> Whaddya mean?
Boys: 
<Loch looks at her> You’ve been through enough guys to know who you feel right with and what you need. Without Sang between us.. where else are we gonna end up?
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> Me and Ren? Maybe for a little while, but she’d get tired of it. Aubrey? She’d probably last longer than most, but.. been there, done that. Heather? Pffft. Please.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Yeah.. but admit it.. you wouldn’t mind a ride on that bike.

Boys: 
<Loch looks at her, in all seriousness> Actually, you’re wrong.
Girls: 
<Saige blinks> Really?
Boys: 
<Loch nods> One.. if I wanted to ride that bike, I would’ve let her take me home last night and fucked her in Sang’s bed. Second… <looks at her> She’s not good enough for me.
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> Oh my *god*. She really isn’t.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> You hear her at the diner? Tellin’ me she was hot *and* single and it sucked to be me because I couldn’t get on that? Yeah.. no.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Babe.. When you said that *I* thought you were talking about because you had Sang.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> I was. Partly. Sang’s hotter any of day of the week. But Heather also doesn’t have a clue who I am. I’m not every schmuck off the street that’ll take any pussy thrown his way and be fuckin’ grateful. <looks at her> Especially pussy that throws herself at every schmuck on the street.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> Oh I know. Believe me.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> I have fuckin’ standards and.. surprise.. *she* doesn’t meet them.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> I’m incredibly glad she didn’t. I couldn’t put my finger on what bothered me about you and her hooking up.
Boys: 
<Loch shrugs> She isn’t you?
Girls: 
<Saige nods> And I’m better than she is any day of the week. I mean *look* at me.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> Tell me about it.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at her> And then there’s… you didn’t get Samuel but she did. Well… you got me and she *didn’t*.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Yes I did. I like Samuel. We’re friends and that’s all we’re gonna be. And I think I got the better deal on that one.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at her> Babe.. Samuel’s too… rough.. for you.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> I know… <looks at him> I don’t think I could ever understand him.. you know?
Boys: 
<Loch nods> Probably not. <looks at her> Which is probably a good bit of the appeal. He’s a mystery.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> I think that was part of it.. but I also think in some ways.. he’s like you.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> *Some*. But not enough.
Girls: 
<Saige shakes her head> None of ’em were enough like you.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> Well, now you don’t have to settle. <stops at the door of the Rock Bottom and pushes it open>
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Did it look like I was plannin’ on it?
Girls: 
<Saige walks through the door, shrugs> And if I did, I knew you’d come for me eventually.
Boys: 
<Loch walks in with her> If I hadn’t been as wrapped up in the bullshit with Sang, I probably woulda opened my eyes a helluva lot sooner.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Yeah.. well.. now *you* don’t have to settle.
Boys: 
<Van calls Saige after getting Ren’s text>
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> Did it look like *I* was plannin’ on it?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles and looks at her phone arches her brow, shows it to Loch> Answer it or not?
Boys: 
<Loch nods> Go ahead. Do the deed and I’ll meet you at the bar.
Girls: 
<Saige nods>All right. <answers the phone> Hello?
Boys: 
<Loch heads to the bar and orders them Jaeger Bombs>
