There’s No One Left to Fight – Lunch at the Diner

Boys: 
<Samuel sits in a booth with Bree and David who were then set upon by Loch, Brennan and Tristan>
Boys: 
<Loch to Samuel, as he’s taking a seat> Yeah, so.. heard you almost put Taryn’s eye out last night.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> She was trespassing.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> I dig it. I *always* unsheathe my weapon when women come traipsing up to my door.
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles> Or you did before Sang put a safety lock on it.


Girls: 
<Bree cracks up> She interrupted something important.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Bree> Yeah, well. Timing is apparently not her forte.
Boys: 
<David smiles> Oh, I don’t know about that. *I* thought our timin’ was pretty good.
Girls: 
<Bree shakes her head> Yeah.. Except I was right *there*.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Bree> Right *where*?
Boys: 
<David looks at Loch> *There*, Loch. As in the finish line.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at David, laughs> Right.
Girls: 
<Bree smiles> Babe.. has it been that long for you?
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Bree> Babe… long is too long no matter how long it was.
Boys: 
<David laughs> That’s *not* what she said.
Girls: 
<Bree smiles at Loch and shakes her head, as Taryn walks in and drops into David’s lap>
Boys: 
<Brennan laughs> So, now we’re doing “not what she said” jokes. <smiles> Awesome.
Boys: 
<David wraps his arms around Taryn, smiles at her> Hey.
Girls: 
<Taryn leans in and kisses David.> Hey. What’d I miss?
Boys: 
<David shrugs> Not much. Just talkin’ about our timing last night.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Tristan> Speaking of too long, when are we seeing Nikki again?
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles at Loch> I don’t know when *you* are, but *we’re* doing dinner tonight so we’re not going to be at the Rock.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> Cool. You know she was a fat girl, right?
Boys: 
<Tristan looks at Loch> What is it with you and Sang and the fat girl thing?
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> All I’m sayin’ is she *was*. I would totally hit that *now*.
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles> Yeah, well.. stand in line.
Girls: 
<Heather walks in and sits in the chair next to Brennan, looks at Loch> Of course you would.

Boys: 
<the boys smile at Heather, Loch> Babe.. I’m taken. I’m not dead.
Girls: 
<Heather smiles> Yeah well I’m neither. Sucks to be you.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> Not from where I’m sitting.
Boys: 
<Tristan looks at Heather> You’ve see his girlfriend, right?
Girls: 
<Heather nods> Yeah.. I’ve seen her. She’s cute.
Boys: 
<Tristan arches a brow> *Cute*? My sister is the hottest girl in town.
Boys: 
<the boys all nod in agreement, Brennan smiles> She is pretty hot.
Boys: 
<Tristan looks at Brennan> You saw what she did to her hair, right?
Boys: 
<Brennan laughs> Oh, yeah. <smiles> It just made her hotter.
Boys: 
<the boys all nod again>
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> She looks great with the new Do.
Boys: 
<Brennan nods, looks at the others> Speaking of.. she’s the one that did Ethan’s hair.
Boys: 
<Loch laughs> I still can’t believe he got *near* a bottle of hair dye.
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles at Loch> And he managed to do it without looking like a fag. Imagine that.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Because *he* didn’t do it *she* did.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> And that’s why she’s our stylist.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Loch> She does all you guys’ hair?
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Taryn> Not yet, but I have a feeling that’s going to change.
Boys: 
<David looks at Taryn> There is *no* way she’s gettin’ near *me* with a bottle of hair dye. I don’t care how good she is.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> I dig your hair just like it is.
Boys: 
<Tristan takes a sip of his tea> Speaking of Ethan and stylists…. I can’t believe he and Siobhan broke up.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Tristan> Oh, that was nothin’. You should’ve been there for the “fight” before it happened. He got up and walked out of the Rock and then *Van* laid into her.
Boys: 
<Brennan nods> And then Ethan showed up at Aubrey’s looking like his world had been crushed.
Girls: 
<Aubrey walks in and takes a seat, leans over and Kisses Brennan> What’re we talking about?
Boys: 
<Brennan smiles at Aubrey> Siobhan and Ethan.
Boys: 
<Tristan looks at Loch> What was Van’s problem?
Girls: 
<Aubrey smiles> Thanks.
Boys: 
<Loch shrugs> Apparently, callin’ Ethan names just pisses him right the hell off.
Boys: 
<Brennan nods, looks at Loch> Well, no shit, Sherlock. Of all the people that know Ethan, who *wouldn’t* be pissed off by it?
Girls: 
<Aubrey nods> Pisses me off and Van’s his brother.
Boys: 
<David nods> Doesn’t do a whole lot for me either.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> I don’t like it.
Boys: 
<Loch nods to Aubrey> He *was* bein’ kind of a shit last night, but I seriously think she misinterpreted it. Because she *doesn’t* know him as well as the rest of us.
Girls: 
<Aubrey nods> And that’s *her* problem not his.
Boys: 
<Tristan nods> Because she hasn’t been here with him every day like we have.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Aubrey> It’s definitely not his problem *now*.
Boys: 
<Brennan nods> Which sucks because he really did want it to work.
Girls: 
<Aubrey smiles and nods> It’s not.. and he’s better off for it.. <looks at Brennan> And if and when she gets her shit straight if he wants to try again he can.
Boys: 
<Akhiro walks in and heads to the table, takes a seat and pours a cup of coffee> What did I miss?
Boys: 
<Brennan nods to Aubrey>
Boys: 
<the boys look over at Akhiro, Loch smiles> Heard someone spent the night makin’ up?
Boys: 
<Akhiro looks at Loch> I’m sure you heard a lot more than that.
Boys: 
<Loch nods, takes a sip of his drink> Nothin’ bad, anyway.
Boys: 
<Akhiro nods, looks at Tristan> Fuck, I’m tired, though.
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles> Sucks.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Akhiro> We can skip my session today if that helps.
Boys: 
<Akhiro looks at Taryn, smiles> No way.
Boys: 
<Brennan smiles at Akhiro> On the upside, it was the shortest break up in history.
Boys: 
<Akhiro nods> And now I don’t have to worry about returning the ring.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> Okay.. I’ll go easy on ya.
Girls: 
<Taryn blinks> Wait…ring? What Ring?
Boys: 
<Akhiro smiles at Taryn> For that, I’m going to save all my energy for you and work you twice as hard. <laughs> What ring do you think?
Boys: 
<David looks at Taryn> The ring he’s gonna give her on her birthday.
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles> When he proposes.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> *That* ring.
Girls: 
<Taryn laughs> That’s great. Seriously perfect.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Loch> The ring most guys fear and loathe the mention of.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Taryn> At least the ones with any sense.
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles and looks at David> I think he just said you and Akhiro are senseless.
Boys: 
<David smiles at Taryn> Comin’ from the guy that’s wearin’ a “promise ring”.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> Pussy makes you stupid. Especially when it’s the hottest chick in town.
Girls: 
<Aubrey laughs> Oh my god.
Boys: 
<Brennan smiles at Aubrey>Yes. Loch just admitted pussy makes *him* stupid, too.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Brennan> But only the extremely epic pussy.
Boys: 
<Ethan walks in with Sang>
Girls: 
<Taryn leans in and whispers to David> Remind me I had a thought about the ring you had for Saige.
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles seeing everyone>
Boys: 
<David nods>
Boys: 
<Tristan looks over at Sang, smiles, to Loch> Speaking of extremely epic pussy, Sang just walked in so you might want to shut up before she hears you.
Boys: 
<Loch looks over, smiles as innocently as he can>
Girls: 
<Sangria looks at Loch> What did you do?
Boys: 
<Loch laughs> I didn’t *do* shit.
Boys: 
<Tristan smiles, takes a sip of his drink>
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles and shakes her head> I know that look.. and that look tells me you did or said or thought something not so innocent.
Boys: 
<Tristan laughs> Does Lock *ever* have a thought that can be classified as “innocent”?
Boys: 
<Loch smiles again> Tristan was just informing Heather that you’re the hottest girl in town.
Boys: 
<Tristan laughs again> Yeah. Like.. ten minutes ago.
Girls: 
<Sangria grabs Ethan’s hand and walks over to the table, Heather gets up and walks over to Ethan and kisses him, Sangria looks at Tristan smiles then at Loch and smiles again> He’s right.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Bree, leans in and whispers> Apparently, Loch’s scared of pissin’ off the extremely epic pussy, too.
Girls: 
<Bree nods> Seriously. <Bree smiles> Maybe he should take your training.
Boys: 
<Ethan stiffens for a second, surprised by Heather’s kiss, before relaxing into it and kissing her back>
Boys: 
<Samuel laughs, whispers> I don’t think there’s *any* training that could cure you of that.
Girls: 
<Bree laughs> Okay.. yeah.. you’re right. <whispers> Looks like Heather’s found a new…warm body.
Boys: 
<Ethan break the kiss, smiles at Heather> Hi.
Boys: 
<Brennan watches Heather, whispers to Aubrey> Fuck.me.
Girls: 
<Heather smiles> Hi.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks over, nods to Bree>
Girls: 
<Aubrey nods> I know right.
Boys: 
<Brennan looks at Aubrey> What did we miss?
Girls: 
<Bree smiles> Hey Ethan? Love the hair.
Girls: 
<Aubrey shakes her head> I do not know.
Girls: 
<Aubrey blinks> Sangria fixed him.
Boys: 
<Ethan looks over at Bree, smiles> Thanks. It seems to work for me.
Girls: 
<Aubrey smiles> And by fixed I mean made him better.
Boys: 
<Brennan looks at Aubrey, arches a brow, whispers> And you think the first thing he did was go get up close and personal with a stripper he barely knows?
Girls: 
<Aubrey shakes her head> No.. I think he got up close and personal with someone else, *then* the stripper.
Boys: 
<Brennan whispers> When you say “up close and personal”, do you mean it the same way I do?
Girls: 
<Aubrey shrugs>
Boys: 
<Ethan looks at Heather, smiles> So.. food?
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Sang> What did you do to him?
Girls: 
<Heather nods> Yes.. Then I’m liberatin’ you from the shackles of Splash Panic.
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles> Hugged him.
Boys: 
<Ethan laughs> Oh, really? <smiles> And what are you going to do with me?
Girls: 
<Heather looks him over again> Baby.. what am I *not* gonna do with you.
Boys: 
<Loch rolls his eyes> You know when hug us, it’s all about the tits, right?
Girls: 
<Sangria looks at Loch> Not always.
Boys: 
<Ethan arches a brow, smiles again> Should I have my secretary hold all my calls for the rest of the week or do you think I might actually make it to band practice?
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Sang> Take a poll if you don’t believe me.
Girls: 
<Heather laughs> Well, baby, that depends on you.
Boys: 
<Ethan nods> Right.. so.. <smiles and shakes his head> For shits and giggles… <looks at her> What’s my name?
Girls: 
<Sangria looks at the guys> Are my hugs only about my chest?
Boys: 
<Akhiro smiles at Sang as the other boys find something extremely interesting on the menu to focus on, Akhiro> That depends on who you’re hugging.
Girls: 
<Heather smiles> Ethan Shaughnessey. Triplet to Van and Brennan. <arches her brow> I pay attention.
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles> Ethan.
Boys: 
<Ethan laughs> Good enough. <looks at Sang> What was that?
Girls: 
<Bree smiles> She wants to know if her hugs are only about her tits.
Boys: 
<Ethan looks at Bree, blinks> And she’s asking *me*?
Girls: 
<Bree smiles> She was telling Akhiro who she was asking specifically about.
Boys: 
<Ethan looks at Sang> Have I told you lately how much I love you?
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles> Yes you have. I love you too. I’m just taking the poll Loch wanted me to take.
Boys: 
<Ethan smiles> In that case.. I’ll say this… it depends entirely on the situation. Last night was one such occasion where your.. chest.. had *no* bearing whatsoever.
Boys: 
<Ethan smiles broadly> However.. that is not to say that it wasn’t bonus.
Girls: 
<Sangria shakes her head and laughs, looks at Loch, smiles> See it wasn’t about that.. well not *only* about that.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles>
Girls: 
<Sangria leans in and kisses Loch>
Boys: 
<Loch kisses her back>
Boys: 
<Ethan takes an empty seat at the table>
Girls: 
<Heather walks back over>
Girls: 
<Renee walks in> Sorry I’m late.
Boys: 
<the boys look over, Akhiro smiles>
Boys: 
<Samuel whispers to Bree> Heather’s gonna eat that boy alive.
Girls: 
<Bree nods> Probably.
Boys: 
<Brennan texts Van, telling him about Ethan and Heather, Van shows it to Saige>
Girls: 
<Saige blinks> holy shit.
Boys: 
<Van smiles, turns the car around and heads for the diner> We need to be there?
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Yes we do. <smiles> can I just say something?
Boys: 
<Van nods> Of course.
Girls: 
<Saige looks over at Van> Go Ethan!
Boys: 
<Van laughs>
Girls: 
<Renee walks over and sits next to Akhiro, leans in and kisses him>
Boys: 
<Akhiro kisses her back, pulls her onto his lap>
Boys: 
<David smiles at Taryn> And the world is right again.
Girls: 
<Taryn nods and smiles> Yes it is.
Girls: 
<Renee smiles and then laughs> Okay so when I find my new place.. party.. and were having a moving out party at my Dad’s place.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Ren, smiles> An actual Renee party this time?
Girls: 
<Renee smiles> Fuck yes.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> It’s about time.
Boys: 
<the waitress comes over and takes the order as Van walks in with Saige>
Girls: 
<Saige walks over to the table, smiles> Hey.
Boys: 
<Van walks over with her>
Boys: 
<the boys look over when Saige walks up and give her a collective hey in return>
Girls: 
<Saige grins and takes at Seat> What’s up?
Boys: 
<Van sits next to her>
Boys: 
<Brennan smiles at Saige> Just the usual. Gossip.
Girls: 
<Saige grins> Gossip is good.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> What’d we miss?
Boys: 
<Brennan shrugs> Not a lot you don’t already know. Tristan’s doing “dinner” with Nikki so they won’t be at the bar tonight. Ethan might not make band practice for the week because there’s nothing Heather’s *not* going to do with him. <looks at the others> Did I miss anything?
Boys: 
<Ethan smiles, shakes his head>
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Oh *reeeally*?
Boys: 
<Brennan smiles at Saige> Reeeeally. Oh.. and did you hear Samuel almost put out Taryn’s eye? That one’s *really* special.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> He pull a gun on you too?
Girls: 
<Taryn nods> In a manner of speaking.
Girls: 
<Bree smiles> You trespass on people’s land it’s what you get. You guys were just lucky we moved inside.
Boys: 
<the boys laugh>
Boys: 
<Samuel nods to Bree> She has no idea how lucky.
Girls: 
<Sangria smiles> How lucky is she?
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Sang, smiles> Let’s just say Bree does things to a man that’d make a whore blush.
Girls: 
<Sangria laughs, looks at Taryn> Very lucky.
Girls: 
<Taryn shrugs looks at Van> He should be a porn star.
Boys: 
<Van laughs> That could be arranged.
Boys: 
<Ethan smiles at Taryn> Funny you should say that. Did you know size is supposedly inherited from our fathers?
Girls: 
<Taryn smiles> I did not.
Boys: 
<Ethan nods> And Samuel’s father is Uncle Bill.
Girls: 
<Taryn blinks> What?
Boys: 
<Ethan looks at Taryn, smiles> Uncle Bill is Samuel’s *father*. Size is inherited… from our *fathers*.
Girls: 
<Taryn shakes her head> Eww.
Boys: 
<Ethan looks at Sang, smiles broadly> I couldn’t wait.
Girls: 
<Sang smiles> I figured.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Heather> He *needs* to be at band practice. So if you have to drag him by his hair.. or what’s left of it.. do it. Just make sure he gets there.
Girls: 
<Heather laughs> I’ll get him there. Promise.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> All right.
Girls: 
<Sangria looks at Loch> You gonna make him sing?
Boys: 
<Ethan looks at Heather> I’m really fucking popular these days.
Girls: 
<Heather smiles> Yes you are.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Sang> Hell, yes.
Girls: 
<Sangria laughs> Sweet.
Boys: 
<Van looks at the others> Yeah.. speaking of Siobhan.. because I totally know that’s where this is going.. I haven’t been able to get a hold of her all day.
Boys: 
<Ethan looks at Van> For the record, I never told her she had to move out.
Girls: 
<Taryn shakes her head> I tried her a couple of times last night and this morning I couldn’t either.
Boys: 
<Van nods to Ethan> I didn’t think you would.
Girls: 
<Renee looks at Ethan> She probably didn’t want it to be awkward for you.
Girls: 
<Sangria looks at Ethan.
Boys: 
<Ethan nods to Renee, looks at Sang>
Boys: 
<Loch shakes his head> Unless she ditches *all* of us.. it’s *going* to be awkward at some point.
Boys: 
<David looks at Loch> “Ditches us”? She hasn’t hung out with *us* yet.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Taryn> Did she call you with her new number?
Girls: 
<Taryn shakes her head> No. She didn’t.
Boys: 
<Van nods> Yeah. She left me a message with it this morning and we’ve been playing phone tag since.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Van> Why the hell did she get a new number?
Boys: 
<Ethan looks at Van> And how am I supposed to “call her” when things cool down?
Boys: 
<Van looks between Loch and Ethan> I don’t know.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Because your brother has her new number. And apparently she wasn’t <Sangria smiles> Thinking real clearly last night when she packed her shit and left.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Van> And this is where we make her look particularly ridiculous and you mass text us all her new number.
Boys: 
<Van smiles at Loch, pulls out his phone> I’m on it. And every fucking one of you should call her at least once just to do it.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Loch> Maybe she just wants some time alone to deal.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Taryn> Sucks.
Girls: 
<Taryn looks at Loch, shakes her head>
Boys: 
<Loch pulls out his phone when the message thing goes off, scrolls to his text messages, puts the number in his contacts> Look.. you can sit there and let her “be alone” all you want. <looks at Taryn> If it was a dude.. especially if that dude was your man.. and he wanted time alone to “deal”.. you women would be all over him and losing your shit over it at the same time.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Taryn> Like you needed time alone? 10 years of time alone.
Boys: 
<Tristan nods> What she *needs* is ice cream and her female friends. *That’s* what girls do.
Girls: 
<Taryn arches her brow at Loch>
Boys: 
<Ethan smiles> And a fucking makeover, apparently. Sang says it’s all about the hanging out with your friends.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Taryn> Oh, don’t give me that look. You know I’m right.
Girls: 
<Taryn shakes her head again>
