A Hard Day’s Night – Dinner Lucien Black Style

Boys:
<inside the Piedmont, everyone’s already seated, in the process of dinner, introductions to Ethan have been made, Ro babbles incessantly as he does, Ethan is just floored by the whole situation and still trying to get his head around it, Lucien and Damien seem like they’ve been there forever in how comfortable they are>
Boys:
<Lucien sits next to Jenna, Ro and Damien sit on either side of them>
Boys:
<Conrad eats, listening to Ro, smiling and shaking his head>
Boys:
<Ethan stares at Ro for a couple of seconds, whispers to Sang> Wow.
Boys:
<Ethan, still whispering> I thought *I* was hyper.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles and whispers>Apparently this isn’t anything unusual for him.
Girls:
<Jenna looks over at Lucien, smiles> I still can’t believe you came down here.
Boys:
<Ethan smiles, whispers> Yeah, but.. we could use one of him for those awkward situations.
Boys:
<Lucien looks at Jenna, smiles> Oh, I wouldn’t miss this for anything.
Girls:
<Sangria laughs, whispers> Oh seriously.
Girls:
<Jenna shakes her head> Other then checking on Samuel..this is really my first time out of my room.


Boys:
<Lucien arches a brow> But *why*?
Girls:
<Jenna looks at him> Are you kidding.. the bed in my room could be made of nails. Last night was the first full night’s sleep I’ve gotten in *years*.
Boys:
<Lucien smiles> It does seem like a pretty quiet little town.
Boys:
<Damien looks at Lucien> Understatement much?
Girls:
<Taryn looks at Lucien and Damien> Usually the only excitement we have is when Loch and David get into a brawl.
Boys:
<Aiden whispers to Sang> You think this is somethin’, you should see Lucien’s family dinners. Drama to no end. And always a shit ton of people.
Boys:
<Damien looks at Taryn> That happen often?
Boys:
<David smiles> Not often enough. Used to be every other night.
Girls:
<Taryn smiles> Not so much anymore.
Girls:
<Sang smiles and whispers to Aiden> Bad for the digestion, good for entertainment?
Boys:
<Damien nods> Well, trust me when I tell you if you do get into one.. you want Aiden on *your* side.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles, nods> Somethin’ like that, yeah.
Girls:
<Ava nods to Damien> Seriously.
Boys:
<Aiden whispers> And he’ll sit people next to each other who hate each other the most.
Girls:
<Sangria shakes her head> That’s almost.. evil.
Boys:
<Aiden laughs> Yeah, but.. Christmas at Lucien’s is the best. He actually hangs religiously themed sex toys from his tree.
Boys:
<Ethan looks over at Aiden> No shit?
Boys:
<Aiden smiles, nods> No shit.
Boys:
<Aiden whispers to Ethan and Sang> Damien’s got a baby Jesus butt plug.
Girls:
<Sangria looks at Ethan> *That’s* what we should get Van for Christmas. The whole nativity.
Boys:
<Ethan bursts out laughing> That’s so *wrong*! <laughs again> My parents are going to start haunting my ass for laughing at that.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles> Yeah.. but Van would *love* it.
Boys:
<Ethan grins> Fuck Van.. imagine the look on Lia’s face.
Girls:
<Sangria bursts out laughing> Oh my *god*. She’d *die*.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles> I’ll send you guys one of Damien’s catalogs.
Girls:
<Sangria nods> Yes please.
Boys:
<Aiden laughs> Wait, wait, wait… <looks over at Damien> Hey, Damien.. what’s that website where you got Baby Jesus?
Boys:
<Damien looks over at Aiden, laughs> I’ll write it down for you later.
Boys:
<Aiden nods> Cool. <smiles at Sang and Ethan>
Boys:
<Conrad cracks up because he knows exactly what Aiden’s talking about>
Girls:
<Sangria looks at Aiden and grins> Nice.. <leans over and whispers> I could probably Google it.
Boys:
<Ro blinks, looks at Aiden> You’re telling them about *that*?
Girls:
<Silver smiles at Aiden> I didn’t know you wnated a baby Jesus.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles at Silver> Yeah, well, you know.. me and Ava are branchin’ out. Explorin’ our faith.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Aiden> There’s things wrong with you, boy.
Girls:
<Ava looks at Aiden and smiles> I’m kind of partial to Judas though.
Boys:
<Damien smiles> So are most of the women I know.
Boys:
<Ro sighs, looks at Taryn> Well… we almost made it.
Girls:
<Ava looks at Damien, smiles>
Girls:
<Taryn looks at Ro> Do I even *want* to know?
Boys:
<Ro smiles> Probably not. Especially if you’re religious at all.
Girls:
<Taryn shakes her head> Not really.. but after the sex slave mishap.. I’m not inclined to ask.
Boys:
<Lucien smiles at Ro> Oh, come on, Ro. Even Em saw the humor in the religiously sex themed toys on the tree that year.
Boys:
<Ro looks at Lucien> And I never said I didn’t. I’m just saying it’s not exactly something you start discussing in polite company with people you’ve just met.
Boys:
<Ro frowns> Well.. unless you’re you. Or Damien. Or Mikhail. Or apparently Aiden.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles at Ro> We haven’t just met Aiden though.
Boys:
<Ro looks at Sang> Well, there is that, I guess.
Girls:
<Saige listens while she eats>
Boys:
<Damien smiles> The only thing that would’ve made it better would be if Lucien had invited the local priest over to bless the tree.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Samuel and whispers> I don’t know what they’re talking about and I’m *really* glad I don’t.
Boys:
<Lucien sighs> Damn. I knew I forgot something. This year.
Girls:
<Sangria blinks> Oh hell… <bursts out laughing>
Boys:
<Samuel smiles at Bree> Oh, I know what they’re talkin’ about.
Boys:
<Lucien smiles at Sang> Yes. And that is exactly where I’m going.
Girls:
<Sangria laughs harder>
Girls:
<Taryn smiles and shakes her head>
Girls:
<Bree looks at Samuel, smiles> You do?
Boys:
<Ethan smiles, pulls out his phone and texts Akhiro> And now I’m asking our friend Akhiro why *he* never brought home religious sex toys in all his excursions to various and exotic sex shops.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> Ayup. And I’m bettin’ now that you know that, you really *do* wanna know.
Girls:
<Sangria shakes her head> Wait.. let me call him and ask.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Sang> All right.
Boys:
<Ethan puts his phone away>
Girls:
<Sangria grins and pulls out her phone dials Akhiro>
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Well yeah.. because it means I don’t have to ask *them*.
Boys:
<Akhiro answers after a couple of rings> Hello?
Boys:
<Samuel smiles, leans over and whispers it in her ear>
Girls:
<Sangria smiles> Hiro.. hey.. it’s Sang. Um.. I have a sex question for you.
Boys:
<Akhiro arches a brow> Since when do *you* have to ask *me* questions about sex? And what is it?
Boys:
<Ethan smiles listening>
Girls:
<Sangria smiles> Do you know where I can put my hands on some religious themed sex toys and if you do why don’t you have any?
Boys:
<Akhiro blinks> Religious themed sex toys? Why the hell do you want.. better yet.. find out, tell me and then we’ll both know.
Boys:
<Akhiro heads straight to his computer and starts googling>
Girls:
<Sangria smiles> You haven’t run across any in your travels?
Boys:
<Akhiro shakes his head> I have never seen those anywhere. And I’ve seen some pretty out there shit.
Girls:
<Sangria grins> You who’ve single handedly decorated Ren’s fun room haven’t seen them? I’m utterly shocked. <stifles a giggle>
Boys:
<Akhiro checks out a couple of web sites> Yes, well… <laughs wickedly> Oh, I’ve gotta go. I’ve got presents to buy.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles> Send the link to my phone. *This* is why I love you.
Boys:
<Akhiro laughs> On its way. I love you, too. <hangs up>
Girls:
<Sangria smiles at Ethan> He’s heard of them now and the link is on its way.
Boys:
<Ethan laughs> Of course it is.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles> He’s buying gifts.
Boys:
<Ethan laughs harder> Oh, my god. We’re all going to have them.
Boys:
<Ethan laughs again> Oh, my *god*… the next party is going to be all about them.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles> At least Renee will.
Girls:
<Sangria nods> Exactly.
Girls:
<Jenna looks at Damien and smiles> I think there’s going to be an epidemic of religiously themed sex toys in this place.
Boys:
<Damien smiles> Spread the love.
Boys:
<Lucien, being slow on the uptake apparently, looks at Jenna> Wait… <whispers> What’s wrong with Samuel?
Girls:
<Jenna looks at Lucien smiles and shakes her head> Bree shot him.
Girls:
<Jenna smiles> Then he apparently asked her to marry him.
Boys:
<Lucien arches a brow> He got shot *again*? Jesus. If he’d just die already, he could save himself the trouble. <laughs> Oh, well… for some reason that doesn’t actually surprise me.
Girls:
<Jenna smiles> Lucien!
Boys:
<Lucien smiles> What?
Girls:
<Jenna smiles, leans over and kisses his cheek> Bree and Samuel are engaged.
Boys:
<Lucien nods> Yes, I caught that, but thank you for repeating it anyway. I *am* getting older.
Girls:
<Jenna shakes he head>I wasn’t sure you did.
Boys:
<Lucien smiles> I’m not exactly floored by it. It happens to the best of us. Hell, even Damien’s been down that road.
Girls:
<Jenna nods> I know. <smiles, quietly> You have to admit though Samuel with a wife…it never crossed my mind.
Boys:
<Lucien nods, whispers> That anyone would say yes to him never crossed mine.

Girls:
<Jenna looks at him, softly> I can’t believe it was Bree.
Boys:
<Lucien nods> *Especially* Bree.
Boys:
<Ethan whispers to Sang> What do you think rich people whisper about?
Boys:
<Aiden leans over, whisper to Ethan and Sang> Other people.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles, leans over and whispers to Ethan> Poor people?
Boys:
<Ethan smiles, Aiden shakes his head, whispers> They don’t limit themselves to the poor.
Girls:
<Sangria looks over at Aiden and whispers> So they just talk about everyone.
Boys:
<Aiden sighs, whispers> Okay.. I’m not really bein’ fair to Lucien. He’s rich and he’s a snob, but… he doesn’t look down on people because of the financial status.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles, whispers> But, yeah.. they do talk about everyone.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles> So he’s like Akhiro?
Boys:
<Aiden thinks about it for a second> Yeah. I guess to an extent, but.. Akhiro isn’t fuckin’ pretentious.
Girls:
<Sangria shakes her head> No he isn’t. <softly> I’m not even sure how to deal with these guys.
Boys:
<Aiden looks at her> You deal with ’em like anyone else, Sang. They aren’t different because of their bank accounts. *Especially* Damien.
Boys:
<Aiden thinks> Well.. and especially Ro.
Girls:
<Sangria whispers> That’s not why, their bank’s got nothing to do with it.
Boys:
<Aiden nods, whispers> Look.. Ro’s the son of a Philly cop. His brother is a plumber. Damien is Lucien’s *half* brother. He was raised on the Southside by his stripper junkie mom until he was 15 when Daddy Warbucks found out about him and moved him out.
Boys:
<Aiden thinks, whispers> Hell.. Ro’s probably one of the least judgmental rich guys I’ve ever met.
Girls:
<Sangria looks at Aiden> Okay.. still… <smiles> I just don’t think I’ve really ever been around anyone quite like Lucien.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles> Yeah, there’s no explainin’ him. He’s just Lucien. They call him the Chaos factor because shit just goes crazy when he gets involved.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles and looks at Ethan> I guess he’s just like everyone else.
Boys:
<Ethan smiles, whispers> He doesn’t *look* like everyone else.
Girls:
<Sangria nods> No he really doesn’t. <whispers> He looks like a lion. And when he’s eying you.. like one ready to pounce.
Boys:
<Aiden blinks, whispers to Ethan and Sang> Check *this* shit out. Guess who’s gettin’ along with Genja.
Boys:
<Ethan nods to Sang> Exactly. <looks over at Aiden> Who?
Girls:
<Sang looks at Aiden> Tell.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles, whispers> *Taryn*.
Boys:
<Ethan blinks, laughs> No way.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles> That’s… <looks at Ethan> The horses?
Boys:
<Aiden nods> Hand to god.
Boys:
<Ethan shakes his head> Fuck if I know.
Girls:
<Ava smiles> Seriously.. she was all talkin’ to him and even did a business deal with him.
Boys:
<Aiden shakes his head, whispers> She learned he has a sense of humor.
Boys:
<Ethan shakes his head> After what happened with Saige? Saige must be pissed about that.
Girls:
<Sangria nods> Seriously. <looks at Ethan> Their faces.. courtesy of each other.
Boys:
<Ethan nods> Figured. It was either that or they ran into the same brick wall.
Boys:
<Aiden whispers> Funny thing about that… when it was over, Saige was all pissed and shit and we didn’t think she’d let anyone near her.. Samuel takes her into the house, they come back out a few minutes later and she’s all cool again and shit.
Girls:
<Sangria looks at Ethan, then at Aiden> Wow.
Boys:
<Ethan nods> Seriously.
Girls:
<Saige looks at Loch, whispers> Aiden and Sang are awfully chummy.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Saige> You say that like it’s new.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> I’m just wonderin’ if it’s the hair.
Boys:
<Loch smiles> I don’t know, but I can’t *wait* for her to see Damien’s ink. Between that and what Ro said to her.. they’re my two new favorite people.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> No *shit*. What was that about.. “I am”? Since when does she do that shit.
Boys:
<Loch nods> That’s what I was wonderin’. Kinda pissed me off. Then the crack she made about livin’ with me? <shakes his head> Fuck her. <looks at her, whispers> At least when she *did* decide to get all arrogant and shit, she pulled it with people who weren’t actually all that impressed.
Girls:
<Saige nods> Seriously. <smiles> *We’re* the attraction around here.
Boys:
<Loch smiles> And we’re better at it. Watch this. <leans over and whispers to Ro> Yo.. when Sang showed up.. that thing about the band… how’d she piss you off?
Girls:
<Saige smiles wickedly at Loch>
Boys:
<Ro looks at Loch, whispers> Oh, caught that, did you? <shrugs> I don’t know.. she was just.. <looks at Loch and Saige, whispers lower> Rude. She didn’t even smile when were introduced.
Boys:
<Ro shrugs> I probably shouldn’t’ve said it, but… I’d totally do it again.
Boys:
<Ro looks at them, still whispering> Hell.. not only that… she didn’t even smile until she said “I am”. Which was just like.. oh, hell no.
Boys:
<Loch smiles> Sensitive, huh?
Boys:
<Ro smirks> Pffft. I’m not sensitive. But when you meet someone for the first time and *they’re* trying to be polite.. as I was.. you be polite back. It’s a *rule*.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> Seriously. So her perky little scene girl attitude didn’t faze you.
Boys:
<Ro looks at Saige, smiles, whispers> I’m a lot of things, but easily phased isn’t one of them. You want to see perky little scene girls.. which she actually failed at, btw, because that was *not* “perky scene girl” that was “full of yourself”… you should hang out a manga convention.
Boys:
<Ro shakes his head> Actually.. if she was going for “Suicide Girl with attitude..” though.. they have attitude by definition.. she totally would’ve pulled *that* off.
Boys:
<Ro frowns> Shit. Maybe I *was* too sensitive with that one.
Girls:
<Saige looks at Ro> Oh.. I don’t think so at all.
Boys:
<Loch nods agreeing with Saige, whispers> She’s never done that before. Not even with Samuel. Usually she’s hyper and perky. Taryn calls her a cheerleader.
Boys:
<Ro looks at them> Well.. I guess that makes it interesting that she didn’t do that with us.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> I think she was overwhelmed.
Boys:
<Ro looks at Saige> It’s the whole “Men in Black” thing isn’t it?
Girls:
<Saige nods>
Boys:
<Ro sighs> Well.. I guess we do look like mobsters from a certain angle. She did recover from it pretty nicely though.
Boys:
<Ro smiles> Ethan would totally get along with my brother, too.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> So when’s he comin’ down.

Boys:
<Ro shakes his head> I don’t know. Silver and Conrad said I should bring him down, but… he works all week and.. you know.. he’s Bree’s ex and they were all but married when they were together. She lived with us and I wasn’t sure how that would go over, but she’s okay with it, but then this whole thing about setting him up with one of the girls from home started and Damien was *not* having that and… <looks at them> You have no idea what I’m talking about, do you?
Boys:
<Loch smiles> I think we’re followin’ so far.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> I think so.
Girls:
<Saige looks at Ro> Why wouldn’t Damien have it?
Boys:
<Ro smiles, nods> Okay, well…<looks at Saige> The girl in question is Damien’s best friend and possibly much more than that.
Boys:
<Ro shakes his head> Anyway.. when I talked to Bree about Christopher and Shay being a potentially good match and would she be okay with him coming down, I wasn’t talking about bringing Shay down, too, just Christopher, but then she got locked on the idea of bringing them both down and kind of throwing them together so now I kind of feel like if I bring him down and not Shay, Bree will be upset and if I bring him down *and* Shay, Damien will kill me. Not to mention what Christopher will do if he finds out we were even *talking* about his love life.
Boys:
<Loch smiles> This is the musician brother, right?
Girls:
<Saige smiles> Wait… Is there a possibility that Bree jumped on shay as maybe a … I don’t know.. way to distract him from the fact that she’s engaged?
Girls:
<Saige shrugs> Like maybe she’s feeling guilty or something?
Boys:
<Ro nods to Loch, looks at Saige> I don’t think so. I think it was more because he was sort of seeing Shay’s sister and then Dominic’s cousin kind of.. got in the way. I think it’s more that.. <arches a brow> Well.. okay.. when you put it that way… I think her engagement on top of his thing with Ciara not working out could be a kind of double dose of guilt there.
Girls:
<Saige nods> I can see how it would be.
Boys:
<Ro sighs> But Damien’s right. You really shouldn’t go around trying to set people up because *you* want to see them in a relationship. You know? I mean, just because *we* think they might be good with someone doesn’t mean *they* think so or even want to find out right now.
Boys:
<Ro shakes his head> And I don’t normally get involved but.. he’s so shy and it doesn’t usually work in his favor. He’s one of those guys that is inclined to miss an opportunity because he doesn’t see it as an opportunity.
Boys:
<Ro smiles and shakes his head> And his friend Gabriel isn’t much better.
Boys:
<Ro looks at them> Bree actually had to tell him straight out “Hey, I want on you” before he realized or even believed he had a chance with her.
Boys:
<Ro smiles> Meanwhile, I choose to just wear them down if I’m interested. They either go out with me because they’re into me or they go out with me to get me off their back.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> Okay.. So with your brother and Shay.. *ask* him. Put the bug in is ear so to speak, then you aren’t fucking around in his love life. <shrugs> If he was starving you’d give him food right?
Boys:
<Ro smiles broadly> *That* is so ridiculously simple. Which is probably why it didn’t even occur to me.
Girls:
<Saige smiles at Ro> Glad I could help.
Boys:
<Ro smiles> So am I. Thank you.
Girls:
<Saige looks at him still smiling> You’re welcome. What about you.. do you have someone waiting for you?
Boys:
<Loch smiles> And with the whole bringin’ him down thing.. fuck what everyone else says… you want him to check out the band and Bree *in* the band…that’s a good reason right there.
Boys:
<Ro nods to Loch> Fuck everyone. I *love* that idea. <looks at Saige> Actually, yes. I’m engaged to Ava’s sister.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> Which might be even *more* reason for Bree to feel the guilt monster. You know.
Boys:
<Ro nods> True. <pulls out his wallet, pulls out pictures of Em and Christopher, hands them to Saige> Her name is Emily. <grins> How ridiculously proper sounding is that? I *love* that. And the best part? I sort of stole her from Lucien originally.
Boys:
<Loch laughs> Dude.. how is you still have a job?
Girls:
<Saige takes the pictures and smiles> Oh.. he’s *cute*. And she’s very pretty.. <shows the pictures to Loch>
Boys:
<Ro smiles at Loch> That’s easy. I’m the best at what I do. And it helps that Lucien *loves* drama.
Boys:
<Loch takes the pictures, looks at them, laughs> Nice. Rocker hair. She kind of reminds me of Lia.
Girls:
<Bree looks over at Saige, smiles> Christopher?
Girls:
<Saige nods> Yeah. <Bree smiles> Emily Ro’s now fiancée went out with him too.
Boys:
<Ro nods to Bree, looks at Saige> But they were more like friends then anything so they decided to just be friends.
Boys:
<Loch hands the pictures back> She’s gorgeous.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> That’s really cool.
Boys:
<Ro smiles proudly> I know. <puts the pictures away and then his wallet>
Boys:
<Lucien looks at Ro> You didn’t steal her from me. I let you have her.
Boys:
<Ro smirks> Please. You were too busy fucking everything in sight. Meanwhile, the only thing in *my* line of sight was her.
Boys:
<Lucien smiles, sighs dramatically> You always were the better man, Ro.
Boys:
<Ro smiles at Lucien> Yes, I was. But don’t worry. When you grow up, there’s a chance you may be a good man, too.
Girls:
<Sangria looks at Lucien then at Ro, starts to say something then stops, and shoves a piece of roll in her mouth>
Boys:
<Lucien laughs> I’ll grow up when I have to have my hips replaced.
Boys:
<Damien smiles> You keep moving the bed across the room and that’ll happen sooner rather than later.
Girls:
<Jenna smiles> Which may be sooner rather than later the way you use them.
Boys:
<Damien laughs ,nods to Jenna>
Boys:
<Lucien smiles at Jenna> I never heard you complain.
Girls:
<Jenna looks at Damien and laughs>
Girls:
<Jenna smiles at Lucien> And I’m not now.
Girls:
<Ava smiles at Damien> You and Jenna do that a lot.
Boys:
<Damien smiles at Ava> Great minds and all that.
Girls:
<Ava laughs> Good to know.. <grins> I thought only old married couples did it.
Girls:
<Ava smiles> Well and Aiden and I.
Boys:
<Damien laughs> Whoa. <smiles broadly> No reason to get nasty.
Girls:
<Ava looks at Damien all wide eyed> I wasn’t being nasty.
Boys:
<Damien smiles> You start throwing the “M” word at me, what am I gonna think?
Girls:
<Ava grins> The “M” word.. you’ve walked that road. <smiles> Don’t get all touchy about it now.
Boys:
<Damien shakes his head> And we all know how that went. I was right the first time.
Girls:
<Ava shakes her head> Only because the chick was flighty. <shrugs> I think most of us were surprised you didn’t go there with Shay. <looks at him> I was.
Boys:
<Damien smiles, shakes his head> Yeah, I kinda fucked that up before we even got close to it.
Girls:
<Ava smiles> I don’t know.. I’m thinking there’s a reason she hasn’t gotten with anyone else since then.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Ava> Utter fear.
Boys:
<Conrad smiles, quietly in a kind of sing song> And she kept the car.
Boys:
<Damien looks at Bree> Thanks. Really.
Boys:
<Damien looks back at Ava> And she did get with someone. Her and Anguish got back together for a while.
Girls:
<Ava looks at Conrad, smiles> Babe.. there is *no* way she’s giving up that car. <looks over at Damien> Which they’ve been doing on and off since forever and that’s not gettin’ with.. that’s comfort.
Boys:
<Damien looks at Ava> Yeah, except from where I’m sittin’ and I’m sittin’ in the best friend seat, “comfort” is equivalent to “love of my life” for Shay.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Damien> I meant fear of herself.
Boys:
<Damien looks at Bree> What does that even mean?
Girls:
<Bree looks at him> If Anguish was/is the love of her life.. she’d get with him and stay there. She hasn’t. I think she’s afraid of feeling like that again.
Boys:
<Aiden nods> Seriously, dude. She *cried* over you. Shay doesn’t do that shit.
Girls:
<Ava nods> Hell I’m not sure she ever cried over Anguish… she got pissed..I know.
Boys:
<Damien shakes his head> Look.. when we broke things off, she got with Anguish. When they broke up, we talked and I told her I missed her because way before then I realized I fucked up.. but nothin’ really came of that. So.. that’s where we stand. In between nothing and everything.
Girls:
<Saige looks at Loch> He needs to talk to Pope.
Boys:
<Loch smiles> Yes.
Girls:
<Ava looks at Saige> I’m thinking the last thing Damien needs is an audience with the Pope.
Boys:
<Lucien smiles> Oh, but how interesting would *that* be?
Girls:
<Saige laughs> Not *the* Pope… Pope. The director of the movie I’m writin’ for Homewreckers.
Boys:
<Loch laughs, nods> This guy is like… the most diehard romantic of all time.
Girls:
<Saige nods> Seriously. Dances with Bonnie in the middle of the parking lot with no music.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Damien> He’ll give you a speech about how true love conquers all, but only if you’re wielding a bad ass weapon and helpin’ out with the beat down.
Girls:
<Saige nods> Totally.
Boys:
<Damien shakes his head> I don’t need someone tellin’ me how to run my shit, but thanks anyway.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> Need it or not.. he’ll probably tell you anyway.
Boys:
<Damien looks at Saige> Well, then, I guess it’s a good thing he’s not here to piss me off.
Girls:
<Saige smiles and looks at Loch>
Boys:
<Loch looks at Saige> The man doesn’t wanna hear it.
Girls:
<Saige nods> Neither did Siobhan.. I’m thinkin’ he’d ask Damien what he wants.. nothing or everything?
Boys:
<Lucien smiles> It’s for the best. She won’t get with Damien again because she’s too afraid she’ll spend the night and wake up with me on top of her again.
Boys:
<Damien smiles at Lucien> And then there’s that.
Girls:
<Jenna smiles> Oh.. I think by now she knows how to handle you.
Boys:
<Lucien smiles at Jenna> Yes. Lie very still.
Girls:
<Jenna laughs> or bore you to tears with talk of how an engine works.
Boys:
<Lucien laughs> Well, yes. There’s that, too.
Girls:
<Jenna smiles>
Girls:
<Bree looks at Ro>
Boys:
<Ro looks at Bree> I don’t know. It kind of sounds to me like Shay’s not the only one who’s scared.
Boys:
<Damien looks at Ro, arches a brow>
Girls:
<Bree nods> I was thinkin’ that.
Boys:
<Ro smiles at Damien> Not that I would *ever* imply that *you* are afraid of anything. Other than Kryptonite.
Girls:
<Bree smiles at Ro> Kryptonite thy name is Shayla?
Girls:
<Jenna shakes her head> Come on guys leave the guy alone.
Boys:
<Ro smiles at Bree> Not that I would ever admit I was implying that out loud or anything.
Boys:
<Damien looks at Jenna> They’re fuckin’ with me because they want to set Christopher up with Shay and I told them to fuck themselves.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Jenna, nods, then looks at Roland, smiles>
Girls:
<Jenna arches her brow> Really?
Boys:
<Ro looks at Damien> That is *totally* not true. I happen to agree that you’re right and we *shouldn’t* interfere. Instead, I was thinking I would just ask Christopher what he thought of the idea.
Boys:
<Damien looks at Ro, looks at Jenna> See?
Girls:
<Jenna nods> I do. <looks at Roland> The idea of setting him up? He’s going to hate it.
Boys:
<Ro shakes his head> No. The idea of him and Shay seeing each other.
Girls:
<Jenna smiles> Oh.. well there you go. <looks at Damien>
Boys:
<Damien shakes his head, pulls out his phone> Fuck you, Ro. You’re so hot to find out. Let’s find out. <calls Shay> Let’s see what *Shay* thinks about it.
Boys:
<Ro looks at Damien> Are you sure you want to do that? She might like the idea.
Boys:
<Damien gives Ro a long look, before hitting end on his phone> Fuck you.
Boys:
<Lucien looks at Jenna> I don’t understand why they insist on antagonizing *Damien*.
Girls:
<Jenna looks at Roland, pointedly> We’re being rude to your guests.
Boys:
<Ro gives Jenna a cool look> You win this time.
Girls:
<Jenna looks at Lucien> Seriously. I’ve got it. <looks at Damien, softly> Take a walk with me?
Boys:
<Damien nods>
Girls:
<Jenna smiles at the others> Please excuse us.
Boys:
<Lucien nods> Of course.
Girls:
<Jenna looks at Roland and smiles> I didn’t do it to win.
Boys:
<Damien gets up and waits for Jenna>
Boys:
<Ro smiles> Still… nicely played.
Girls:
<Jenna stands and puts her napkin in her chair, nods to Ro> Thank you. <turns to Damien>
Boys:
<Damien walks away from the table>
Girls:
<Jenna goes with him>
Boys:
<Ro looks at the others, smiles> She is *good*.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles> She gonna keep you on your toes, Ro?
Boys:
<Ro nods> Oh, definitely.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Hit you where you live.
Boys:
<Ro looks at Bree> I don’t know if I’d say that so much. Either way.. point to her. I have to respect that.
Girls:
<Bree laughs> Come on Ro.. everyone knows you abhor rudeness.

Boys:
<Ro smiles broadly> Well, yes. But not everyone thinks to use it against me.
Boys:
<Ro shakes his head, still smiling> And so smoothly, too. If Summer had had *half* her composure.
Girls:
<Bree shakes her head> Summer was balls out.
Boys:
<Ro looks at Bree> Pffft. Summer was having a tantrum.
Boys:
<Ro looks at the others> I said some things to her she didn’t like so she chose *blatantly* ignoring me. As in responding to things I said, but talking to *other* people to do it as if *they’d* said it.
Boys:
<Ethan laughs> Oh, my god. <smiles> You’ll love Siobhan, then.
Girls:
<Sangria nods> Yeah you will.
