There’s No One Left to Fight – Sexual Healing Edition Part 2, Girl’s Night

Boys: 
<Van nods, starts to say something when Seth interrupts> I want the two of you to take a good hard look at him the next time you see him.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> All right.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Seth> Um.. okay.
Boys: 
The look in his eyes should be familiar to you.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Seth> The only time I’ve seen a look in his eyes was when he was looking at Bree.
Boys: 
<Seth shakes his head> Then you’re not paying attention. <looks at them> He’s got that haunted look. Like *his* soul’s been raped.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Seth> And he’s probably raped a few in his time, too.
Boys: 
<Seth nods> Probably. But that kind of thing takes a toll on you. If you’re human.


Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Seth, quietly> I didn’t see it because I was avoiding it in myself.
Girls: 
OR maybe I thought it was being mirrored back from my own eyes.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Siobhan> I talked to him in Matoaka. We actually got along pretty well. And you don’t inspire the kind of loyalty Aiden, Conrad and those girls have if there’s not *something* pretty goddamn amazing about you. We just haven’t seen it yet. We’ve seen *something*, but only part of what’s there.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles> And it’s not a porn star sized cock.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> I think that he went to the mat for Saige like he did says a lot about him.
Boys: 
<Seth nods>
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> I saw him with Bree at the diner. They’re close. <looks at them> I mean *really* close. Close like Ren and Akhiro.
Boys: 
<Seth nods> And that’s not a guy that gets close to a lot of people.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Van>
Boys: 
<Van looks at Siobhan>What?
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> I was just thinking.
Boys: 
<Van smiles, nods>
Boys: 
You’re turn, babe. Who’s on *your* fuckable list?
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Mine apparently is changing. Van, you, Brennan, Tristan.
Boys: 
<Van arches a brow>Brennan? Really?
Boys: 
<Seth smiles>
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> Yeah. Okay *look* at him. HE’s fucking *hot*. and <shrugs> I don’t know.. there’s something to being able to say I’ve done triplets.
Boys: 
<Van laughs> There it is.
Boys: 
If you and brothers got down like that, that could’ve been our next movie.
Boys: 
<Van laughs again, nods> No shit.
Girls: 
Come on.. that would be like incredibly sweet being the *only* girl to claim all three of you.
Boys: 
<Van arches a brow, smiles, looks at Seth> “Claim” us.
Boys: 
<Seth laughs> I dig it. <looks at her> All three at once or does it matter?
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Doesn’t matter.. <looks at Van and smiles> But I couldn’t even imagine the sensory overload of all three…
Boys: 
Too bad we didn’t know sooner. We might’ve been talked into it before we all ended up with girlfriends. And I’m primarily thinking of Brennan here.
Girls: 
There’s something to be said for a fantasy staying a fantasy.
Boys: 
<Van nods> And then there’s that.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles wickedly at Van> I can still used *that* when I do what I do when I’m alone which I’m gonna be doing much more often now.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> We might have to write that into the script.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Van> *Might*? <smiles at Siobhan> And on that note … what’s on your “no list”, baby?
Girls: 
I don’t know.. I have to think about that. I mean.. I don’t want to be degraded or humiliated.
Girls: 
<Siobhan blinks> Corpses.. no corpses.
Boys: 
<Seth nods> Think about then, and we’ll come back to it later. <smiles again> In case you haven’t noticed, I don’t have a lot of boundaries. <nods> But corpses would definitely be one of them.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> I’m okay with that. No other girls.
Boys: 
<Van nods>
Boys: 
<Seth looks at her> We’ve got time. You don’t have to figure it all out today. We’ll just want to go over it before we start shooting.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> All right. <looks at Van, smiles again> So how are you going to do this without Lying to Saige about it.
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> I’ll let you know when I figure it out.
Boys: 
Just don’t tell her at all? “Oh, hey, Siobhan’s going to be working with us in such and such capacity” and just leave out all the parts that pertain to your dick inside her?
Boys: 
<Van laughs> That right there is why I keep you around.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at them, quietly> Look, I don’t want you to get in trouble because of me. Either of you. <looks at Seth> A lie of omission’s still a lie.
Girls: 
<Siobhan shrugs> And while I’m all for it…he’s not comfortable lying to her.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Siobhan> His relationship isn’t your responsibility. And he *is* trying to keep the relationship and business separate. <looks at Van> Omitting details about your business isn’t lying.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Seth> And your morality is so… beautifully twisted. <looks at Siobhan> He’s actually kind of got a point.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles> It’s not cheating if there’s a film crew. At least that’s always been *my* argument.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods>Has that worked for you?
Boys: 
<Van nods> Lying by omission is a gray area. I fully believe it’s based on intent. Otherwise, anytime you didn’t feel like sharing a detail with someone they could accuse you of lying to them.
Boys: 
Believe it or not, there are a lot of women who agree with me. Just none of them happen to be my wife.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Van> And I seriously doubt Saige tells *you* everything.
Boys: 
<Van nods> She didn’t tell me she was planning on fucking Samuel that night.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> True. I just never thought of it that way.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at them> Here’s the thing though.. eventually they’re going to know especially if we use this as our Coming out movie.
Boys: 
<Van nods to Siobhan> I’m aware. I’m also aware that Seth can always fuck with the time line. “We made the movie before we got the mortgage”.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Especially with Sang and her powers of internet search.
Boys: 
Or I could just flat out tell her we haven’t closed on the house yet, therefore… or I was already obligated by the time we signed the papers….
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> Tell her that. And be upfront and honest with her about everything else.
Boys: 
I think on this one, I’m going to go with what seems to be Saige’s favorite approach.
Girls: 
<Siobhan laughs>Easier to ask forgiveness?
Boys: 
<Van laughs> And that is how well we know her.
Boys: 
<Van nods, smiling> That’s exactly what I meant.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> And if she gets shitty you can use Samuel as a defense.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> And Aiden.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> Exactly.
Boys: 
<Seth nods>At least you *know* Siobhan. And this is “for the good of the company”.
Boys: 
And we can justify anything.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at them, laughs, blinks> Okay.. I’m partying with them tonight. I won’t say anything about any of this to them.
Boys: 
<Van nods> Speaking of which, when do you have to go get ready?
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks over at Van> We’re meeting at the loft at 8. So probably 630.
Boys: 
<Van nods> So, you’ve got a couple of hours yet.
Girls: 
Yeah. We’ll delete that video so no one comes across it.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles, stops the recording, walks over and hands her the phone>
Girls: 
<Siobhan takes the phone and deletes the video off it, smiles and looks up at him> Done.
Boys: 
<Seth nods, looks at Van> So I guess we should get back to cleaning.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Siobhan, smiles> I guess so.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> Probably. <looks at them> If you give me a key.. <smiles> Oh it would be a good back drop as it is…I can come in during the next few days and work on it. <crouches by another box>
Boys: 
<Van nods> I’ve got a spare back at the apartment. I’ll give you mine when we drop you off.
Boys: 
<Seth goes back to sweeping>
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> And I’ll hit the store for some cleaning products for that bathroom.. there’s a shower and stuff in there too.
Boys: 
<Van nods> Sounds like a plan. <looks at her> We might even be able to convert the loft into office space and a living area.
Girls: 
There you go. or a place to house the people you bring in from out of town?
Boys: 
<Van nods> That, too. <smiles> There’s a lot of potential here.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Van> There really is. It’s a huge space. <Siobhan smiles> Hell I have all of my furniture from New York in storage.. we could go through that too. I’m going to find a place but I’m not going to need all of it. I had an enormous penthouse apartment there.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> I guess we’ll leave the decorating up to you then, but.. I was actually thinking, if you can’t find something you like in town….
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Here? <thinks about it> I’d have to buy a car.
Boys: 
<Van nods> It’s something to think about.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Siobhan> So buy a car. One, you wouldn’t have to buy or rent a space on your own. Two.. the company pays for the building. Three… think of the *privacy* you’d have here. Which is why we picked this one to begin with.
Girls: 
Yes it is. And there’s not much in town right now. And someone would *be* here.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> Which I was also thinking.
Boys: 
<Seth laughs> And worst case scenario..if you get lonely, you could take one of the puppies.
Boys: 
<Van nods> And the best part is.. people can’t just randomly show up here claiming they were “in the neighborhood”.
Girls: 
<Siobhan laughs> See I thought you were going to say if I get lonely I could borrow one of *you*. <smiles> I’ve never thought about having a dog.
Boys: 
Well it *is* going to be a while before they’re ready to go, so.. I guess if you *had* to, you could.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> What’s to think about?
Boys: 
<Van smiles> Okay, then.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Van> Looks like we’ve got a busy week ahead.
Boys: 
<Van nods> If not month.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Yes we do. We’ll need to set up an office and sitting area. I can pull my stuff out of storage and just move here if we clean the loft first. then I can work on the other stuff while I’m here.
Boys: 
<Van smiles, listening to her> Make a list.
Girls: 
<Siobhan shakes her head> I list what for?
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> What we need to do in what order.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> We clean the visible stuff.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> Starting in the loft.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> Yes.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Then I’ll get the movers to move my stuff in and I’ll start cleaning.
Girls: 
Which’ll probably consume much of my time for a while.
Boys: 
<Van watches her, smiling>
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at him, still smiling> What?
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> Nothing. It’s just good to see you smiling. And.. looking somewhat more optimistic than you were earlier.

Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at him> I wasn’t feeling very optimistic earlier…<shrugs> I felt very much like I did the day I came back.
Boys: 
I bet. Tonight.. relax and just try and have a good time. And if you pick up some random stranger and fuck him silly, more power to you.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Random strangers aren’t really my thing.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at them> Thank you.
Boys: 
<Van smiles, nods> Any time, babe.
Boys: 
<Seth looks over at her, smiles> No problem.
Girls: 
<Siobhan shakes her head still smiling, because she can’t help it> Last night I didn’t know what to do. <quietly> I figured everyone would circle the wagons around Ethan.
Boys: 
Last night they did. And he needed it. But.. he had Sang who *really* circled *her* wagon and he’s in a much better place today. So.. here we are. Now it’s your turn.
Boys: 
Well.. it wasn’t even everyone. It was mostly Sang and a couple of others. The rest were just kind of on the fence until Brennan decided he and the boys were going to do something for you.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> Which is kind of funny, because last night, Brennan was all about Ethan.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Van, quietly> I actually, for a bit.. considered going back to New York. <smiles> I knew if I did you’d just come get me. <looks down> I’m not even angry. Hurt yes but I’m not angry..
Boys: 
Babe.. you guys weren’t working. Brennan and I knew it but we weren’t going to interfere because it seemed to be what you both wanted, but I can tell you.. in all honesty.. Ethan didn’t go dancing under the moonlight. He was pretty wrecked last night, too. And he wanted it to work as much as you did.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> I tried to make it easier for him. I didn’t cry or lose my shit.. I know we weren’t working, it kind of got to where it seemed like we weren’t doing anything right with each other. And I’m glad he’s…finding comfort in Heather.
Boys: 
You guys’ll be okay. You’re not going to lose him, Siobhan. You’re way too important to him.
Girls: 
<Siobhan whispers> I hope not. <looks at Van> I left him a note with the key to the apartment.

Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> Siobhan.. when I told them you had a new number, the *first* thing Ethan said was “How am I supposed to call her when things cool down?”.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Yeah.. it was kind of …rash of me to drop the phone. I just didn’t really care anymore when he called. 600 dollars and a new phone later.. <shakes her head> lesson learned.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> I think we’ve all been there at least once.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Seth> At least now when they call it’s a local number.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at her, smiles> Yeah. So, do *I* get this number now?
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Seth> Yeah. <pulls out her phone> Give me yours.
Boys: 
<Seth leans the broom against the wall, walks over to her, pulls out his phone and hands it to her>
Boys: 
<Van watches them, somewhat amused>
Girls: 
<Siobhan plugs the digits into his phone then calls hers and hands his back>
Boys: 
<Seth smiles, takes his phone back, puts it away>
Boys: 
It’s like being at a bar.. only … a little more desolate and a whole lot less desperate.
Girls: 
Yeah.. without the possibility of going home with the guy.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles at Van> At least until the movie’s written.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Siobhan> You say that like it’s a *good* thing.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks over at Seth, smiles> No I didn’t.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles> *That* makes me feel better.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> If we… <shakes her head> Yeah.. not even finishing that one.
Boys: 
<Seth arches a brow> Why not?
Girls: 
<Siobhan laughs> Because I refuse to incriminate myself.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles> Babe.. thinking about you is enough to get me hard. Thinking about “if we” is enough to get me *off*.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles again and looks at Van>
Boys: 
<Van laughs> I’m going back to cleaning while the two of you verbally fuck each other standing.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Van> Chicken.
Boys: 
<Van arches a brow, smiles> Chicken? What, exactly, is the challenge?
Girls: 
<Siobhan grins playfully> I hadn’t issued one yet and you were running already.
Boys: 
<Van smiles slyly> Baby.. there’s a hotel right around the corner. I’m more than happy to take you to it so we can rehearse.
Boys: 
<Seth laughs> The scene we haven’t written yet.
Girls: 
<Siobhan laughs, and feigns disappointment> Oh but we can’t we have cleaning to do.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> Who’s running now?
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> My feet aren’t moving.
Boys: 
We can justify anything.
Girls: 
How do you justify rehearsing for something not written?
Boys: 
<Seth smiles> Everyone’s creative process is different.
Girls: 
How do *you* justify it?
Boys: 
<Van shrugs> Trying out some ideas to see if they work? Getting to know my costar? <smiles> Comforting one of my closest friends in her time of need?
Boys: 
<Seth arches a brow> Ooh. That’s a good one.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Oh.. You’re good.
Boys: 
<Van smiles again> Well.. we *are* friends. You *do* need comforting. Random strangers aren’t your thing and Ethan *is* getting his. It would be wrong on *so* many levels if you didn’t get yours, too.
Boys: 
And then, of course, is the little detail where if we don’t *tell* anyone, none of us will have to justify shit.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Seth> You are *so* practical.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles again> I try.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at them> Christ I tell anyone and suddenly I’m the pariah.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Siobhan> Or a hero. Depending on who it is.
Girls: 
<Siobhan shakes her head> How do you figure a hero?
Boys: 
I’m sure you’re not the only one with me *and* Seth on your fuckable list.
Girls: 
<Siobhan laughs> Probably not.. but still. You’re both spoken for and Sang would have my head if she found out.
Boys: 
<Van arches a brow> *Sang* doesn’t have a claim to either of us. And *she* spent the night with Ethan. Granted, they didn’t fuck or anything, but still. They aren’t much better in front of Loch than you and Seth have been over the last five minutes.
Boys: 
<Seth listens to them> And it’s none of *Sang’s* business. Why are we still talking about this?
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Okay okay.. still Discretion is not overrated.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles> I’m curious. The last time the two of you fucked.. did you debate it for half the night first?
Boys: 
<Van smiles, nods to Siobhan> And I am nothing if not discreet.
Girls: 
<Siobhan laughs and looks at Seth> Uh.. no.
Boys: 
<Seth nods to Van> I was “discreet” about my entire career for a whole *year*. <looks at Siobhan, smiles> So, this isn’t the foreplay, then. Good to know.
Girls: 
<Siobhan laughs> Babe he slammed me against the front door.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles> That sounds much more like my speed.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Oh really?
Boys: 
<Seth nods, still smiling> You might even get to find that out for yourself at some point. If not today, then when w work together.
Girls: 
<Siobhan arches her brow, smiles> Yet you’ve been nothing less than a gentleman.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at her> You have a seriously interesting definition for “gentlemen” if you think that’s what I’ve been.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> I’m pretty sure “being a gentlemen” requires a little more than just not actively grabbing your ass while he’s telling you all the ways he wants to “wear your pussy out”.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Okay.. so you haven’t ravaged my body while we’ve been standing here. Even when “if we” got you *off*.
Boys: 
<Seth smiles> You aren’t usually standing next to me when “if we” gets me off.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles and Van’s been nothing but comforting.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> Then maybe you don’t need any more comforting from me.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks over at Van> I like your brand of comforting.
Boys: 
<Van smiles again>
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Siobhan> So.. while we’re keeping secrets….
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Seth> Yeah?
Boys: 
<Seth smiles, quietly> Keep this… <leans down and presses his lips to hers>
Girls: 
<Siobhan inhales sharply through her nose, and then responds, eagerly>
Boys: 
<Seth intensifies the kiss as soon as she responds, wrapping his arms around her>
Boys: 
<Van smiles, pulls out his keys, heads for the door> I’ll go get the car.
