The Truth You Might Be Runnin’ From – Picnic Cont’d, Aiden Proposes

Girls: 
<Taryn looks at everyone, smiles> So I have a question…
Boys: 
<the boys look over at Taryn, Aiden> S’up, babe?
Girls: 
<The other girls look over too, Taryn shrugs> I was reading something this morning and it said that people feel emotions differently. So I was just wondering what falling in love felt like for other people, and I figured if I couldn’t ask my friends who could I ask.
Boys: 
<the boys all look at each other like “oh, christ”>
Boys: 
<the boys focus intently on their food, deciding to leave that one up to the girls>
Girls: 
<Taryn shakes her head watching the boys go from rapt attention to looking at their food> Oh no.. I want to hear from you guys too. <grins> And No I’m not gonna let this one go.
Boys: 
<Conrad looks at the other guys, looks at Taryn> *If* we agree to talk about this.. *you* all have to agree that it never leaves this table, we all walk away with our man cards intact *and*.. we never speak of it again.
Boys: 
<the boys all nod in agreement with Conrad>
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Of course. <looks at the girls> And any of the girls don’t agree, <Smiles sweetly> I’ll kick their asses. <the other girls nod, Ava looks at Taryn and blinks, Kendra arches a brow and Heather and Bree just look at her, even as they all nod and give a chorus of okays and yeses>


Boys: 
<Conrad nods, looks at Aiden, smiles> Go ahead, man.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Conrad, arches a brow> Excuse the fuck outta me? <laughs> Oh, no, spooner boy.. *you* can go first.
Boys: 
<Conrad arches a brow> Really, Aiden? Really? You’re gonna out me like that?
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> Oh, yeah. Tell us all about it, man.
Boys: 
<Conrad shakes his head> Assholes.
Girls: 
<Heather looks at Conrad> Spooner?
Boys: 
<Conrad looks at Heather> Don’t ask. <looks at Taryn> Fuck all these assholes. My biggest one.. me and her weren’t even together. There were mitigating circumstances. We spent a lot of time together, things got heated one night and we agreed we should.. back off. Do our own thing. So, a couple of nights go by and I’m doing my own thing.. watching Adult Swim after work.. and it just kinda hits me.. what the fuck am I doing? More importantly.. *why* am I doing what I’m doing and *not* what I need to. <shrugs> So.. I got in my car, went to her place, broke down her front door.. told her how I felt and that I was gonna stalk her til she figured out she felt the same way.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> That’s pretty decisive, but how did you feel. I mean like.. when I realized it I couldn’t breathe.
Boys: 
<Conrad shakes his head> I don’t really know how to describe it. One minute I’m sitting there watching Drawn Together and not laughing at the Joan Rivers vag at *all* even though it was fuckin’ hilarious as shit, and the next minute, I was like.. *bam*.. I’m in love with this girl.
Boys: 
<Conrad smiles> But after that it was all urgent and gotta deal with it *now* or my fuckin’ head’s gonna explode.
Boys: 
<Conrad shrugs, still smiling> Aaaand.. I didn’t actually break down her door. That probably wouldn’t have worked in my favor. But I did bang the shit out of it.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> That’s kind of cool actually. Any others that stick out for you?
Boys: 
<Conrad shakes his head> Not really. Other girls I was into like that kinda snuck up on me and weren’t as urgent. It tends to be just like.. I’m thinkin’ about them constantly and smiling a lot and I just feel it there one day.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> All right. <looks at Aiden>
Boys: 
<Aiden rolls his eyes> Seriously, Tar?
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> David?
Boys: 
<David smiles at Taryn> Mine just kinda slammed into me. Some guy said somethin’ and it was like he detonated a bomb inside my head.
Boys: 
<David shrugs>And then I went straight into panic mode.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Loch.. you’ve been there..
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> There was no “falling” involved. One day I wasn’t, the next day I saw her and I was. Period.
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles> Yeah.. it kind of hit me that way too. “Bam!” right in the face.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Sang, smiles> It wasn’t like that. It was just.. every part of me just honed in on you and everything else kinda just.. faded to black.
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles> See for me it was it was more I saw you and knew. I knew we were gonna end up together. And My heart almost exploded out of my chest.
Boys: 
<Conrad smiles at Sang> Yeah, I’ve had that one, too.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Conrad> When you were fuckin’ her?
Boys: 
<Conrad looks at Aiden> Um.. no. Just.. walkin’ around thinkin’ about her.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods, goes back to eating>
Girls: 
<Ava looks over at Conrad, smiles>
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Brennan>
Boys: 
<Brennan looks at Taryn> Why do I get the feeling you’re more interested in what the guys have to say than the girls?
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> I am.. the article didn’t give much info about how different guys felt but there were a tone of excerpts from girls of varying ages.
Boys: 
<Aiden sighs> Fine. <looks at Taryn> I didn’t *know* all at once. There were certain guys I wanted to kill because just the thought of ’em touchin’ her sent me into a homicidal rage. And one guy I actually *did* end up shooting. Then there was.. I found myself not givin’ a shit that my rep was fallin’ apart or what people thought about that. Then there was.. yanno.. fuckin’ her and feelin’ like I’m gonna die, but not. Because it wasn’t panic. It was just… like.. overwhelmingly intense and I couldn’t breathe for a second when I got in there. <keeps his eyes on Taryn> Then there was takin’ her back after all the bullshit.
Girls: 
<Taryn listens to Aiden, keeping her eyes on him, Ava looks at him as well, Taryn softly> Wow.. that’s … really.. <stops because she can’t find a word to use that’ll let him keep that man card>

Boys: 
<Aiden nods> *Then* there’s all the little shit. Not listenin’ to my friends when they told me what kinda trouble I was in. Plannin’ ahead beyond just the night in front of me. Lookin’ at rings in pawn shops. The unrelenting, never fuckin’ ending *rage* when it finally ended. And all the bullshit that apparently goes along with watchin’ her life go on without you like you weren’t that big a part of it.

Girls: 
<Ava blinks, quietly> That’s not true.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Taryn> Apparently, I’m still a little irritated about the whole thing.
Boys: 
<Aiden shakes his head> Yanno what the worst part is?
Girls: 
<Taryn shakes her head> I don’t.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at her> Feelin’ it all fall apart around you and not bein’ able to do fuck all about it. Wonderin’ if you’re the one they’re thinkin’ of when they’re starin’ out a window. Feelin’ ’em pull away or change towards you. And you can’t shoot it. You can’t go after it with a baseball bat. You can’t even punch it in the face. You can’t do shit.
Boys: 
<Seth nods> And sometimes *that’s* where you figure out you’re in love with them.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks over at Seth, after nodding to Aiden>
Girls: 
<Lia quietly> I knew it when I was fighting to be the only one in his life..
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Lia> I knew it when the only thing I could obsessively think about was how I was gonna get her back home.

Girls: 
<Taryn nods, smiles> Anyone else? <Heather nods> I knew when I wanted to strangle every girl that touched him while we were broken up. When I was able to breathe because I saw him.
Boys: 
<Akhiro smiles> With Ren, I think it was when I was trying to be there for a close friend who needed me but not being able to be fully there because I kept thinking about her and feeling like I *had* to get back to her.
Boys: 
<Akhiro smiles at Taryn> And actually getting jealous when I found out she’d made plans to go to breakfast with David.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles, Renee looks at Akhiro, then at Taryn, smiles> I think for me it was the same night, that I knew without a doubt. I wanted to do breakfast with David.. and initially I could have been more but then when Akhiro went to his friends and *I* was jealous… I knew that David and I would just be doing breakfast.
Boys: 
<David looks at Taryn, smiles> And I started worryin’ entirely too much about what was goin’ on in your life and not enough about what was doin’ on in mine.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> I think it was the tree house.
Boys: 
<David smiles again> Yeah, I knew before then.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles at David> When Tristan talked to you?
Boys: 
<David shakes his head> No. I had an idea when it actually bothered me that you thought I’d hurt Saige, but I knew for sure when listenin’ to you go on about all the new stuff you were tryin’ out started pissin’ me off.
Boys: 
<David takes a sip of his beer> I don’t usually give a fuck what people think about me.. but I cared what *you* thought.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at him> I never believed you’d hurt her.
Boys: 
<David nods> I know that *now*.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Good.
Boys: 
<David smiles>
Girls: 
<Taryn looks over at Samuel>
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Taryn, smiles> You askin’ *me* now?
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Yeah. I am.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks over at Aiden>
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles> You’ve gotta at least have one.
Boys: 
<Samuel shakes his head> There’ve been one or two. I figured it out about the time I felt the need to try a more.. <looks at Saige> gentle and encouragin’ approach.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles because he knows she’ll get the reference> When I wasn’t just tryin’ to get my dick wet.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles, Saige looks at Samuel when he talks, Taryn nods looks at them all> Thank you. <grins> I guess the article was right.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods> Can we not talk about Cosmo anymore now?
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> It wasn’t Cosmo.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Taryn, smiles> I thought Cosmo was like.. *the* relationship mag for girls.
Boys: 
<Samuel goes back to eating>
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> It might be I just don’t read it.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods>
Boys: 
<the boys go back to their food>
Girls: 
<the girls eat too>
Girls: 
<Ava watches Aiden and picks at her plate>
Boys: 
<Aiden looks over at Ava, pushes his plate a little bit in her direction, goes back to eating>
Girls: 
<Ava stabs a green bean from Aiden’s plate>
Boys: 
<Aiden shakes his head and keeps eating>
Boys: 
<David looks at Taryn>
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles at David, mouths, “I’ll explain later.”
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Ava> You know how I feel about green shit. Might as well take it all.
Boys: 
<David nods>
Boys: 
<David whispers> I *knew* there was more to it. <goes back to eating>
Girls: 
<Taryn nods>
Girls: 
<Ava smiles> Thanks… They’re really good though.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods> Still green.
Girls: 
<Ava smiles> I know.. but there’s bacon. <stabs another green bean>
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at the green beans more closely> Seriously?
Girls: 
<Ava nods> Yeah.. and they’re salty.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks over at her> You’re tryin’ to get me to eat these, aren’t you?
Girls: 
<Ava looks at him> If you want.
Boys: 
<Conrad looks at Aiden> Dude. *Samuel’s* eatin’ them. How bad for you can they be?
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Conrad> Samuel rides horses, too. You don’t see *me* gettin’ on one, do you?
Boys: 
<Conrad grins> Why not? You get on all the same women.
Girls: 
<Ava smiles> Between the bacon and salt they’re probably worse for you then the fried chicken and gravy. <stabs another one with a big piece of bacon on it>
Boys: 
<Aiden smirks, flips off Conrad, looks at Ava> Yeah, but the chicken’s *fried*. Which is kind of key there.
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles >Besides, if I eat the vegetables, what are *you* gonna eat?
Girls: 
<Ava smiles> There’s more..
Girls: 
<Ava looks at Aiden, gives him a brilliant smile> Please.
Boys: 
<Aiden rolls his eyes, dishes more food on his plate, mutters> Bitch. <forces himself to eat the green bean with the biggest piece of bacon he can find>
Boys: 
<Samuel watches him, smiles, looks at the other South Side girls> See? Soft.
Girls: 
<Kendra and Heather smile>
Girls: 
<Silver nods> Seriously.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Samuel> I’ll shoot *you* next.
Girls: 
<Bree looks at Samuel> I don’t think so. I think it’s just to get her off his case, before Taryn jumps in on it.
Girls: 
<Bree grins> Because there is not a chance in hell he could stand that.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Bree> Shit. <looks at Samuel> That’s *totally* it. One of her’s bad enough.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles at Bree> See, I think it just pisses him off that she’s not scared of him.
Girls: 
<Bree smiles> I’m not either.. and *I* couldn’t get him to do that.
Boys: 
<Conrad laughs> *No*.. it’s totally a control thing. As in.. she has it.
Girls: 
<Silver smiles> Do you *not* remember her gettin’ him to try sushi?
Boys: 
<Samuel laughs> Holy shit. <smiles> Me and Conrad couldn’t even do it tellin’ him it was just like.. <Conrad interrupts> Good. Just really good.
Girls: 
<Heather smiles> But man did he love the wasabi.
Boys: 
<Aiden smirks> There’s a difference between eatin’ pussy and food that’s *like* it. One’s hot and the other is just flat out gross.
Boys: 
<Aiden blinks, laughs> Oh, my god. I just figured out why Sushi’s gross. <grins> It’s *cold*.
Boys: 
<the boys crack up>
Girls: 
<Ava smiles and shakes her head> And everything’s better warm?
Boys: 
<Conrad grins> And it doesn’t moan.
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles at Ava> Everything that’s important. Except beer.
Girls: 
<Ava laughs, and looks at Aiden>
Girls: 
<Ava looks over at Conrad> Rad!
Boys: 
<Conrad bursts out laughing> What?! *I’m* not the one comparing food to pussy.
Boys: 
<Conrad smiles> In excruciating detail anyway.
Girls: 
<Ava smiles> I don’t even know.. It didn’t make sense then either?
Boys: 
<Conrad laughs again> Inorite!
Girls: 
<Taryn leans in and whispers to David in her best National Geographic narrators voice> And here we have the mating habits of the rare Yankee.
Boys: 
<David smiles, looks at Taryn> At least we’re not dodgin’ bullets.
Girls: 
<Taryn grins> And Aiden ate veggies.
Boys: 
<David laughs>
Girls: 
<Saige listens smiling, whispers to Van> I never realized that Taryn was a good host.
Boys: 
<Loch checks the time on his cell phone> We’ve gotta practice sometime tonight.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Saige> Why do you seem surprised?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> I’m not surprised.. just..impressed.
Girls: 
<Saige quietly> She wanted to turn this into a B&B and offer like trail rides and things.
Boys: 
<Van nods> Think she’ll still do that? <takes a sip of his beer>
Girls: 
<Saige shrugs> I don’t know.
Boys: 
<Van nods again> What do you think of the idea? <looks at her> All the strangers roaming around the ranch?
Girls: 
<Saige shakes her head> I kind of have issues with it. But I also know it’d be a good source of revenue.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> “Revenue”?
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Yes.. It’s not really income.
Boys: 
<Van nods> I’m kind of surprised you haven’t had issues with all the people staying here as it is.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> It’s okay. I really haven’t been here much.
Boys: 
<Van smiles, leans over and whispers> I’m also wondering if Hera and Harley are fixed.
Girls: 
<Saige blinks> Oh shit.
Boys: 
<Van nods, takes another bite of his food>
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Puppies.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> And could explain why they’ve *both* been scarce.
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> Yes it could. <Saige looks over at Samuel> Hey Samuel?
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Saige> Yeah?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Is Harley fixed?
Boys: 
<Samuels looks at her like “Right”>
Boys: 
<Samuel shakes his head> Of course not.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Seth and Lia> What about Hera?
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Lia> Did you get her fixed?
Girls: 
<Lia shakes her head> No.. I was gonna let her have a litter of puppies first.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> That could happen sooner than you think.
Girls: 
<Lia blinks>
Boys: 
<Seth shakes his head> Our daughter’s a whore.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Sang, smiles>
Girls: 
<Aubrey looks at Samuel, smiles> Apparently your dog did *not* get cock blocked.
Girls: 
<Sangria looks at Loch, to Lia> Dibs on first pick.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles, shakes his head, looks at Aubrey, still smiling> I didn’t get blocked. I got detoured.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Seth> What she said.
Girls: 
<Aubrey laughs>
Girls: 
<Lia looks at Seth and whistles for Hera, then looks at Samuel> Your son’s a bad influence.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Lia, smiles> At least finding homes for them shouldn’t be too difficult.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Lia, laughs> He comes by it honestly.
Girls: 
<Lia smiles> No.. because everyone here will get them as gifts.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> Darlin’, I’d be more than happy to take one off your hands.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Lia> And by everyone here you mean that lives here locally because no fuckin’ way am I takin’ a dog home with me.
Girls: 
<Lia smiles> That’s exactly what I mean.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Loch> You’re lookin’ at about two months.
Boys: 
<Loch nods, looks at Sang> There ya go.
Girls: 
<Sang grins, Taryn looks at Sang> For them to be born then another two for them to ready to go home with you.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Taryn> We’re not completely retarded.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Didn’t think you were. Just sayin’.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Ava> You gonna get one?
Girls: 
<Ava looks at Aiden, shakes her head> No.. probably not.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods>
Girls: 
<Ava shrugs> Kinda hard to crash on peoples couches if you’re draggin’ a dog along.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Ava> Gives you a reason to go home every night.
Girls: 
<Ava nods> Yeah…
Boys: 
<Conrad looks at Ava> Since when has dragging a dog along been a problem crashing on any of *our* friends couches?
Girls: 
<Ava looks at Conrad, shrugs> I don’t know.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Conrad, smiles> Since it’s Aiden’s couch she’s thinkin’ about.
Girls: 
<Ava looks at Samuel> Bite me.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Ava> Tell me I’m wrong.
Girls: 
<Ava looks at Aiden> Shoot him.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Ava> Why? <smiles>
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> That’s what I thought.
Girls: 
<Ava shakes her head, sighs> Right.. bro’s before ho’s. <looks at Conrad> *Why* do I always forget that?
Boys: 
<Aiden arches a brow> What the fuck did you just say to me? No. No way. You can say that about damn near any *other* ho we know, but I have *never* put my boys before *you*.
Boys: 
<Conrad arches a brow> Um.. because Aiden doesn’t usually do it?
Girls: 
<Ava nods> You’re right.. I’m sorry.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at her for a second, shakes his head, takes a sip of his beer> You never end up on my couch anyway. It’s always one of the beds.
Girls: 
<Ava smiles> True.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at her> And yeah, a dog *would* kinda fuck that up.
Girls: 
<Ava nods> I know.. <shrugs> Especially if you had to shoot it because it got in your bed.
Boys: 
<Conrad smiles> Yeah, because they like to sit on the bed and watch you fuck.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods to Conrad, looks back at Ava> Yeah. But.. I was thinkin’ more because it *would* give you a reason to go home at night.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Samuel and blurts> Why haven’t they gotten back together again?
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Taryn> They’re workin’ on it. They got this problem where neither one of ’em wants to be the one that brings it up.
Boys: 
<Conrad smiles at Taryn> Yeah, we’ve done this.. shit.. two or three times by now.
Girls: 
<Ava smiles> There is that.
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles> You done eatin’?
Girls: 
<Taryn shakes her head> Damn.. and you guys don’t just lock them in a room together and get it done.
Girls: 
<Ava nods and smiles> Yeah.
Boys: 
<Conrad laughs> How would *that* be fun? <smiles> Besides.. we’re waitin’ on them to surprise us.
Boys: 
<Aiden nods, pushes his plate away>
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> One of these times, they’re gonna have had this conversation so many times, they’re not even gonna have to say anything. Just look at each other.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Ava, listening to the guys, quietly> Think maybe this could be the last time?
Girls: 
<Ava nods, quietly> I do..
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Conrad> Surprise you with *what*?
Boys: 
<Aiden nods> Remember you said that.
Girls: 
<Ava smiles> I will.
Boys: 
<Conrad looks at Taryn> With one of them finally just looking at the other and saying.. “we’re getting back together”. And the other one going “yes, we are”. And the whole thing taking about five seconds as opposed to the usual five days. Though.. it does get shorter each time.
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles> So, get your ass where it belongs.
Girls: 
<Ava grins and scrambles into his lap>
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles again, wraps his arms around her, rests his head against hers, looks over at Taryn> Yeah, so.. I’m not gonna need you to be on the lookout for those words for me.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles at Aiden> I figured. <grins>
Boys: 
<Conrad smiles at Aiden and Ava, looks at Taryn> Like that.
Girls: 
<Ava entwines her arms around him>
Boys: 
<Samuel shakes his head> I don’t know why the forces that be keep fuckin’ with ’em.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles, looks at Samuel> Maybe they’ll leave ’em alone this time.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles at Taryn> I’m thinkin’.
Boys: 
<Conrad looks at Silver, smiles> So… maybe we should give Nay’s number to Constantine.
Girls: 
<Silver smiles> Maybe. Or Samuel.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Silver> I’ve already got it memorized. She’s my lawyer, remember?
Girls: 
<Silver nods> There is that.. <looks at Conrad> Yeah.. Constantine.
Boys: 
<Conrad smiles again> I wonder if *she’d* do porn.
Girls: 
<Silver shakes her head> Nay? Pfft.. no.. you have a better chance of Ci doin’ it.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> I’d lay bets on that.
Boys: 
<Conrad nods> Me, too.
Girls: 
<Heather smiles> I don’t know.. I heard she and Viktor were into some pretty kinky shit.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Heather> She used to get with all three of us. My money says she *would* do it.
Boys: 
<Conrad smiles> So.. maybe someone should let *Viktor* know she’s free again when we get home.
Girls: 
<Heather shakes her head> Damn…
Boys: 
<Van looks at Saige> And we thought the warehouse was a big deal.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> Maybe we need to step up our game.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Van> You guys step up your game. We need to get to practice.
Boys: 
<David looks at Taryn> You want me to come home after or you just wanna meet up at the Rock?

Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> I’ll meet you there.
Girls: 
<Bree looks at Tristan> After practice I can show you my pictures.
Boys: 
<Tristan looks at Bree> You’re coming with us. And your friends if they want.
Boys: 
<David smiles> All right.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Tristan> Me and Ava are gonna meet up with you guys at the bar. <looks at Ava, smiles> We’ve got some shit to work out.
Girls: 
<Bree smiles> I knew I was.. <looks at the other girls, Heather smiles> And Since Ava’s busy… Yes.. we’d be happy to go to practice.
Boys: 
<Aiden, to Ava> Let’s help Samuel with cleanin’ up and then we’ll get to the rest of it.
Boys: 
<Conrad nods> I’ll hang out with Samuel.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Aiden, you guys do *Not* get to clean up tonight… The girls and I ‘ll get it.
Boys: 
<Aiden looks at Taryn, smiles> Fuckin’ with my routine, babe?
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> Right.. forgot.. Sorry. <Smiles>
Boys: 
<Aiden nods> All right, then. <looks at Ava> This time.. I’m just gonna put a ring on your finger and be done with it.
Girls: 
<Ava looks at Aiden and blinks> What the fuck did you just say to me?
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles> You fuckin’ heard me.
Boys: 
<Samuel and Conrad exchange a look, get up and start clearing the table>
Girls: 
<Ava arches a brow> You askin?
Boys: 
<Aiden shakes his head> Nope. <looks at her> I’m tellin’.
Girls: 
<Ava nods> Okay then.
Boys: 
<Aiden smiles> All right.
Girls: 
<Ava leans in and kisses him>
Boys: 
<Aiden kisses her back without restraint, moving a hand to the back of her head and tightening his other arm around her>
Girls: 
<Ava wraps around him her body fitting itself to his as of its own volition>
Boys: 
<David looks at Taryn, whispers> I’d love to have been there when *he* realized he loved *her*, because I’m thinkin’ that one shook the world.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods, quietly> Me too.
Boys: 
<David smiles, leans over and kisses Taryn> I’ll see you in a bit.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles and kisses him back> Yes you will..remind me to fill you in.
Boys: 
<David nods> Trust me.. I’m not gonna forget about *that*.
Boys: 
<the band members and Van say goodbye to their girlfriends (Van because he’s there manager) and head out to the loft with Bree and the other girls>
Boys: 
<Aiden heads into the kitchen to start dishes>
Girls: 
<Ava goes with Aiden>
