It’s Been a Hard Day’s Night – The Diner

Boys:
<Tristan, David, Akhiro, Loch, Ethan, Seth and Brennan are already at the diner, several pots of coffee are lined along the tables>
Girls:
<Taryn, Siobhan, and Aubrey sit with the guys, Siobhan and Aubrey sucking down coffee while Taryn drinks tea, Taryn looks out the window at the shop> Are Sangria and Renee coming over?

Boys:
<Akhiro shakes his head> I have no idea. <looks at Saige> What’s with all the extra tables?
Girls:
<Saige shrugs> Counted wrong?
Boys:
<Loch smiles, looks at the others> So.. in case you guys haven’t clued in yet.. Seth and Lia are goin’ through with the divorce after all.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Loch, smiles> Which puts Lia back at home with us and me and Sang scrambling to make up for being shits when she went back to Seth.
Boys:
<Brennan laughs> Don’t you hate it when that happens?
Girls:
<Taryn smiles> Oh.. that sucks.

Boys:
<Ethan nods> Yeah. Especially since Van doesn’t have that problem when *I* get involved with people.
Boys:
<Seth looks at Ethan, smiles> *Van* knows better than to pick a side before the dust settles.

Girls:
<Saige takes a sip of her coffee> Because Van’s too nice.
Girls:
<Siobhan smiles and looks at Saige>Oh? See I was thinking he was more controlled.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Saige> Babe.. *I’m* nicer than Van any day of the week.
Boys:
<Brennan nods> I’m with Siobhan. It’s totally a self control thing. Ethan’s *way* more impulsive.
Boys:
<Ethan shakes his head> No. Ethan just isn’t very good at keeping his emotions in check when shit happens.


Girls:
<Saige nods> Okay. I can go with less impulsive.
Boys:
<Seth laughs> Yes. Van is the *epitome* of self control. <takes a sip of his coffee>
Boys:
<Van walks up to the table with Bonnie and Pope, smiles> You say that like you don’t actually believe it.
Boys:
<Seth looks at Van, smiles> Oh, I believe it. Under the right circumstances.
Girls:
<Siobhan laughs and looks at Van> I don’t know I can think of a few times control wasn’t an issue.
Boys:
<Van smiles at Siobhan> I have my limits. <looks at the others> Pope, Bonnie.. this is everyone. <makes the introductions>
Boys:
<Pope smiles, nods> What’s up?
Boys:
<David looks at Loch> Oh, look. You and Saige managed to keep a secret.
Boys:
<Loch smiles at David> You mean *other* than the one where we were havin’ a hot and heavy relationship behind everyone’s backs? Yeah, we occasionally pull one off.
Boys:
<David smiles, nods> And then there’s that.
Girls:
<Taryn smiles shyly at Pope and Bonnie> Nice to meet you. <The other girls greet them amid hey’s and what’s up’s>
Boys:
<Van takes a seat, Pope following his example, smiles at Van> Oh, she’s cute.
Boys:
<Van smiles, nods> Saige’s twin sister. The good twin. She’s married to David.
Boys:
<David smiles> Yeah, she’s really sweet, til you piss her off.
Boys:
<Pope nods to David> Show me a female that isn’t.
Girls:
<Taryn blushes, Bonnie sits down, leans over and whispers to Pope> Too Bad.. she’d be good for a sweet innocent.
Boys:
<Pope looks at Bonnie> Oh, but she’d be a perfect heroine for a good vampire romance.
Girls:
<Saige laughs looks at Pope> Yes she would.
Girls:
<Saige blurts> So Samuel got shot last night.
Boys:
<the others look at Saige, Brennan arches a brow> I know I should be surprised, but.. somehow I just can’t get there.
Boys:
<David looks at Saige> How the hell did he get shot and why the hell do *you* know about it and *I* don’t?
Girls:
<Saige looks at Brennan> In the shoulder he’s okay.
Boys:
<Ethan blinks, pulls out his phone and texts Sang>
Girls:
<Saige looks at David> You all were at practice. I heard it and went over there.
Boys:
<Akhiro shakes his head> Bulletproof, my ass. More like lead magnet.
Boys:
<Loch arches a brow> *That’s* why Bree bailed on practice.
Boys:
<Tristan shakes his head> Who the hell gets shot in Solitude?
Girls:
<Saige looks at Loch> Yeah, and why I was late getting there last night. Or this morning.
Girls:
<Saige looks at Tristan> Samuel.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Saige> I’m getting the feeling he can’t go *anywhere* without getting shot at.
Boys:
<Loch smiles at Saige> So, it *was* another dude.
Girls:
<Taryn blinks pulls out her phone and texts Samuel> What the hell are you all right?
Girls:
<Saige looks over at Loch> Actually it was the girl that shot him. <shrugs> I hogged tied her.
Boys:
<David laughs> Oh, *please* tell me it was Bree that did it.
Girls:
<Saige shakes her head> No.. It wasn’t. Bree actually disarmed the girl.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Saige> I’m thinkin’ maybe you should tell this story from the beginning.
Boys:
<Seth looks at Saige> Wait….
Girls:
<Saige looks Loch nods and starts to speak when Seth does, looks over at Seth>
Boys:
<Seth shakes his head> Before you say *anything* else.. is this girl in jail?
Girls:
<Saige shakes her head> I don’t know where she is.
Boys:
<Seth nods> Then maybe you should let Bree and Samuel tell the story.
Boys:
<Seth looks at her> Since you don’t actually know how it ends.
Girls:
<Saige nods> Probably.. I mean I can tell what I know.. which isn’t much.
Boys:
<Samuel walks into the diner with Aiden, Bree , Ava, Genja and Kendra>
Boys:
<which is why he didn’t respond to Taryn>
Girls:
<Sangria runs over from Splash Panic with Renee, Stops and grins seeing Aiden> Aiden!
Boys:
<Aiden stops and grabs Sang, hugging her fiercely while Samuel proceeds to the table>
Boys:
<Aiden, smiling as he hugs her> There’s my favorite little scene girl.
Boys:
<David looks over at Samuel> Why in the hell didn’t me and Taryn hear about you gettin’ shot?
Boys:
<Samuel looks at David for a second, looks at Taryn> Right as rain, darlin’. <looks at David> You act like I never been shot before.
Girls:
<Sangria grins and hugs him back, tightly> Hey. What are you doing here? Is Samuel okay? How long are you staying and oh my god. How do you like being married? Oh.. and I’m probably the *only* scene girl you know but at least you didn’t call me Emo.
Boys:
<Aiden laughs> Damn, girl, slow down. <smiles again> He’s fine, I have no idea, I’m diggin’ it and yeah, I think you are.
Girls:
<Taryn walks over to Samuel, hugs him gently, softly> Are you really okay?
Boys:
<Samuel hugs Taryn back with his good arm, smiles> You should see the other guy.
Girls:
<Sangria grins at Aiden> Yep you pass. <kisses his cheek loudly before letting him go, Ava watches and laughs>
Boys:
<the other guys are just staring at Samuel like he’s superman, Aiden like they just  can’t believe he’s there and Genja like “oh, shit, here we go again”>
Girls:
<Kendra looks at Genja>
Boys:
<Aiden looks at Ava, smiles> I dig this town.
Boys:
<Genja looks at Kendra, whispers> At least they don’t seem to think *I* shot him.
Girls:
<Siobhan watches the guys, turns and smiles at Genja> You guys come sit down, we’ve got coffee and <frowns> tea.
Girls:
<Kendra smiles, softly> Saige probably told them the story already.
Boys:
<Van frowns> So.. if Aiden and Genja are here and the girl that shot you isn’t in jail.. I’m guessing nothing good happened to her.
Girls:
<Renee walks over to the table, sits next to Akhiro, whispers> Hey.
Boys:
<Genja nods, whispers> And she should’ve kept her mouth shut. <walks over to the table, nods to Siobhan> Coffee is always good this early in the morning.
Boys:
<Akhiro whispers to Ren> So.. Samuel got shot. By a woman.
Girls:
<Kendra nods> Probably. But I’ve got it damage control, if it’s needed.
Girls:
<Ren blinks> Jesus. Sang just said we needed to come over here.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Van, letting Taryn go and taking a seat> No idea what you’re talkin’ about, man. Me and Bree were drunk, had one of our fights, I called her a bitch and she shot me.
Boys:
<Van arches a brow> *Bree* shot you?
Boys:
<Samuel nods> Ayup. That’s what I get for teachin’ her how to shoot.
Girls:
<Bree nods and smiles> Then he gave me this. <Holds her hand out>
Boys:
<Genja nods to Samuel> And the fact it’s Bree is probably the only reason she’s alive and.. <smiles when Bree shows off the ring> engaged now.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles at Van> And then I gave her that.
Boys:
<Van smiles, shakes his head> Yes, because that is *always* the thing to do when a girl shoots you.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> You don’t see her pointin’ a gun at me now, do ya?
Boys:
<David smiles at Bree> So, at *your* wedding, *you’ll* be the one holdin’ the shotgun.
Boys:
<Aiden walks over and takes a seat, looks at the others> So, what’s this shit I hear about them havin’ breakfast burritos now?
Boys:
<Seth watches Samuel and Bree for a second, smiles at Bree> Congratulations.
Boys:
<Ethan and the other boys all say the same thing>
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Thanks. <grins and decides to just take this bull by the horns> Yeah.. he had it hidden in the bottom of the oatmeal box.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles at Bree> You ever get your head around the fact you had oatmeal?
Boys:
<Samuel grabs Bree’s hand and pulls her into his lap, wraps his arms around her> She didn’t even realize what the hell I was doin’, she was so worried about the oatmeal. I’m pretty slick, but I didn’t realize I was *that* slick.
Girls:
<Bree laughs> I’m still trying to figure out where it came from. <looks at the others, shrugs> I was a little shook up. I mean I’d just shot him.
Boys:
<Genja smiles at Samuel> Don’t kid yourself, you could sell a nun birth control.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Yes he could.
Boys:
<Seth looks at Bree> Saige said something about you disarming the woman that shot him and her hog tying her.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Seth> Yeah, and Saige gets paid to use her imagination.
Girls:
<Saige smiles sheepishly>
Boys:
<Genja looks at Saige, smiles> Fleshing out your next novel?
Girls:
<Saige nods> My screenplay.
Boys:
<Genja nods> Sound much more exciting than the reality.
Boys:
<Bennan smiles> Pffft. Reality *always* blows.
Girls:
<Saige looks at Genja, nods>
Boys:
<Pope nods> And this would be why we put her on the payroll.
Girls:
<Bonnie laughs> Yes it would.
Girls:
<Saige takes a drink of her coffee>
Girls:
<Bonnie smiles> And I can’t wait to see what she does for the screenplay.
Boys:
<Aiden looks over at Saige, smiles> So what’s this shit I hear about you changin’ up your men?
Girls:
<Saige smiles at Aiden> Not changing up.. <looks over at Loch> We’d been seeing each other on the sly for *months*.
Boys:
<Seth looks at Aiden, smiles> Actually, I think this past couple of weeks, there’s been more wife swapping than what goes on in the Emmanuelle movies.
Boys:
<Aiden looks at Seth, arches a brow, looks at Ava> Do we get that reference?
Girls:
<Siobhan laughs> Yes there has.
Girls:
<Ava shakes her head> No. we don’t.
Girls:
<Ava softly> Rad might.

Boys:
<Genja looks at Aiden and Ava> They’re movies about a very sexually active woman. Older ones. I’m sure Conrad has them and if he doesn’t, I’m sure he’ll be more than happy to regale us with a retelling of her exploits.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles at Genja> Sexually active woman? Fuck that. We’ll rent them.
Girls:
<Ava nods and smiles> Yes we will.
Girls:
<Saige grins> Or we could do a private screening of them.
Boys:
<Aiden nods to Saige> We could. I wanna hear more about the wife swapping and why the hell you all couldn’t wait for me and Ava to come back down.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Aiden > Pffft. Dude.. shit happened so fast, even if you’d been here, you wouldn’t have had a chance to get *near* Sang.
Boys:
<Brennan laughs> Seriously. Ethan had her on lock down from the second she told Loch to hit the road.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Brennan> Hey, asshole. I’m sittin’ right here.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles at Ethan> Smart boy. I knew I liked you.
Girls:
<Saige laughs at Aiden> Babe, I had to jump while the jumping was good you know?
Boys:
<Aiden smiles at Saige> I’m very familiar with that concept, yes. I’m just regrettin’ the wife swappin’ didn’t happen while I was here and still single.
Girls:
<Saige laughs> Oh why’s that?
Girls:
<Saige grins> You want to see for yourself if the boys are telling the truth about the blue hair.
Boys:
<Aiden just smiles>
Boys:
<David laughs> I think she might startin’ to figure you out.
Girls:
<Sang blurts> It’s not blue.. it’s purple now.
Boys:
<Aiden looks at Ava, smiles> I guess I’m more transparent than I thought.
Boys:
<the boys look at Sang, Ethan laughs>
Girls:
<Saige smiles> Figuring *that* out was easy.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles and shrugs, looks at Tristan> How’s Nik?
Boys:
<Tristan smiles at Sang> Ooh.. subject change. She’s fine.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles at Saige> Babe.. she wouldn’t know what to do with me outside of the bedroom.
Girls:
<Sangria grins> Didn’t you have a date with her? How was it.
Girls:
<Saige laughs> Oh I think she might.
Boys:
<Tristan smiles> It was good. They’re always good. I’m actually surprised she’s not here.
Girls:
<Ava looks at Aiden> She’d drive you nuts.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles> Call her. Maybe she doesn’t know we’re all here.
Girls:
<Siobhan looks at Seth> I’ve got a line on some puppies.
Boys:
<Aiden looks at Ava> Sang’s pretty bad ass, but I’m kinda hung up on someone else.
Girls:
<Lia walks in and looks around heads over to The table and sits next to Van, as she kisses his cheek> Sorry I’m late.
Boys:
<Van looks at Lia, smiles> So.. apparently, Bree and Samuel got drunk and started fighting, he called her a bitch, she shot him and he retaliated by proposing.
Boys:
<Genja nods to Van> And Aiden and I are here with the girls because we brought our doctor to check him out.
Girls:
<Ava smiles> I’d hate to have to hurt her.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles at Ava> I’d really hate to see her get hurt.
Girls:
<Lia blinks>
Girls:
<Ava leans in and kisses Aiden>
Girls:
<Sangria smiles at Ethan> Hey baby.
Boys:
<Van smiles> I know. We already decided that Samuel can’t go *anywhere* without getting shot.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> On the upside, it’s the only time I ever been shot by a woman.
Boys:
<Ethan smiles at Sang> Hey. <nods to Samuel> And that’s what it takes to get you to propose. Awesome.
Girls:
<Lia shakes her head> He got shot by her and then proposed? Just.. <blinks again> I don’t even know how to process that.
Girls:
<Lia smiles>
Boys:
<Ethan looks back at Sang, smiles> I almost want to be a cowboy. Except for that whole getting shot thing.
Girls:
<Sangria grins> Problem is I couldn’t shoot you.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Lia> A woman shoots you and you *don’t* put her in the ground.. you *have* to marry her. It’s some kind of bad boy rule.
Boys:
<Ethan laughs> How is that a problem?
Boys:
<Aiden smiles at Samuel, to Lia> A bad boy wants a bad girl. No girl is badder than the one that’s got the balls to shoot your ass.
Girls:
<Sangria laughs> I don’t even know.. but I bet you’d be sexy as fuck in those tight jeans that hug your ass just right and a pair of cowboy boots and chaps.. <grins> Yes chaps.
Boys:
<Ethan laughs again> And you’re not hot for Samuel or David why?
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Ethan> They don’t have red hair.
Boys:
<Tristan grins> And Aiden don’t wear chaps.
Girls:
<Lia smiles and looks at Seth, her eyes twinkling playfully> So that’s what was wrong. I didn’t shoot you.
Boys:
<Seth smiles at Lia> I’m actually kind of surprised you didn’t. <looks at Siobhan> I would *not* be surprised, however, if you did.
Girls:
<Sangria flips off Tristan> Bite me.
Boys:
<Tristan smiles at Sang> Yeah, get shitty, but you’ve got a redhead now, don’t you?
Girls:
<Siobhan laughs> It could happen.
Boys:
<Ethan smiles at Sang> Yes, you do.

Girls:
<Sangria smiles> I happen to love red hair on a guy. <shrugs> Especially with green eyes.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Ava> And I am forever grateful to you for getting Aiden off the market.
Boys:
<Van looks at Sang, smiles> Yet.. you’ve never gone out with any of us before Ethan.
Girls:
<Ava laughs and looks at Ethan> You are most welcome.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles> None of you asked.
Girls:
<Sangria looks at Van> I’d make you crazy. And Brennan would have to make his own sandwiches.
Boys:
<Van leans over and whispers to Sang> We were all too busy chasing the wrong women at the time.
Boys:
<Brennan looks at Sang> Yes, because I never had a sandwich a woman didn’t make me. Please. I make better sandwiches than.. <laughs> Well.. Saige does.
Girls:
<Sangria smiles and whispers> Yeah.. but now that you’ve got the right ones how happy are you.
Girls:
<Sangria looks at Brennan> Babe… a three year old makes a better sandwich than Saige.

Boys:
<Brennan smiles> Shh.
Boys:
<Loch smirks> Please. When a woman fucks like Saige, makin’ a sandwich is the *last* thing she’s gotta worry about doin’ right.
Girls:
<Aubrey looks at Brennan, smiles> I make the sandwiches. He takes out the trash.
Boys:
<Loch smiles at Saige> Men don’t get with her for her cooking.
Girls:
<Saige looks at Loch and smiles> And they don’t bitch about them when I do make them because their mind is so numb.
Boys:
<Loch laughs> And their taste buds after that first bite.
Girls:
<Siobhan leans over and whispers to Seth> I’ll make your sandwiches.
Girls:
<Saige smiles at Loch> Which is why there’s take away.
Boys:
<Seth looks at Siobhan, smiles, whispers back> The last thing I’m thinking about when you’re around is who’s going to make my sandwich.
Boys:
<Genja smiles and shakes his head> I don’t even *eat* sandwiches.
Boys:
<Brennan shakes his head, smiles> This is going to sound *horribly* sexist of me but the best damn sandwiches I’ve ever had are Aubrey’s Dagwood’s.
Girls:
<Siobhan whispers> Good thing…because my mind is never on food when you’re close.
Girls:
<Aubrey smiles> You’re the only guy I’ve ever made one for.
Girls:
<Kendra looks at Genja smiling> Food snob. <whispers> And I can say that because I don’t eat them either.
Boys:
<Genja smiles at Kendra> I’m not being a snob. I’ve just never really gotten into the habit. My mother always cooked all three meals of the day. Kat always cooks and during the day, I usually have lunch at Tramps.
Boys:
<Genja looks at her> I really just think too much about some of this shit.
Girls:
<Kendra smiles> It’s cool. I lived on Peanut butter sandwiches for a while. That’s why I don’t eat them.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles, listening to Genja and Kendra> Actually, *I* have an aversion to grilled cheese.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Aiden> What the hell’s wrong with grilled cheese?
Girls:
<Ava looks at Aiden> I didn’t know you didn’t like grilled cheese.
Boys:
<Aiden looks at Samuel> *Everything*. Mostly how obsessed grilled cheese lovers get over them. <looks at Ava> Yeah, it’s a holdover from my last incarnation as a Sim.
Boys:
<Samuel, Genja and Pope nod in agreement with Aiden, Genja> Yes. That’s my problem, too.
Girls:
<Ava cracks up> Still didn’t know.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles when she laughs>
Girls:
<Saige looks at Loch> What’s a Sim?
Boys:
<Loch looks at Saige> Fuck if I know.
Girls:
<Sangria grins> I *love* that game.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles at Sang> Oh, yeah? Like playing God?
Girls:
<Ava softly> I used to be a Sim like you.. then I took an arrow to the knee.
Boys:
<Aiden looks at Ava, cracks up>
Girls:
<Sangria laughs> Totally.
Girls:
<Ava grins>
Boys:
<Samuel smiles at Ava> I’ve heard about you and your honeyed words.
Boys:
<Genja smirks at Samuel> Actually, that would be you with the honeyed words.
Girls:
<Ava laughs, then grins at Genja> Yes… totally.
Boys:
<Genja smiles at Ava> And Kat would be “hands to yourself, sneak thief”.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles> Just because Kat’s got her hands in your pockets, doesn’t mean she’s lookin’ for the shinies.
Girls:
<Ava nods>Oh yeah. Absolutely.
Girls:
<Ava smiles> And she wouldn’t get caught.
Boys:
<Genja smiles at Aiden> No, but she’s definitely looking for the baubles.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Who isn’t?
Girls:
<Siobhan looks at Seth> What are they talking about?
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree, smiles> Says the girl that told me to put the ring in a safe.
Boys:
<Seth looks at Siobhan> I think they just called that Kat girl a slut.
Girls:
<Bree shrugs> I didn’t know it was a ring at the time. <smiles> And I didn’t know it was a ring for *me*.
Girls:
<Bree laughs> I’d’ve given you the finger if I had.
Boys:
<Samuel laughs> Which finger? The finger to put it on or the bird?
Girls:
<Bree smiles> The one to put it on.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> It’s on it now, and that’s all that matters.
Girls:
<Bree nods and smiles> It actually startled me this morning. The sun caught it and it flashed and for a second it looked like a muzzle flash and then I realized what it was.
Boys:
<Genja looks at Kendra> And suddenly, Bree is the least romantic girl on the planet.
Girls:
<Kendra smiles> How do you *not* realize *that*.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Kendra> I was still half asleep?
Girls:
<Kendra laughs> Still not very romantic.
Boys:
<Genja looks at Bree, smiles> At least you didn’t grab your gun and try to shoot your finger off.
Girls:
<Bree laughs> No, I didn’t. I did spend the next few minutes looking at it though. <looks at Samuel, smiles> And thinking…
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree> Thinkin’ about what, baby girl?
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Us. Our future. Moving into the barn, the dogs and horses.
Girls:
<Taryn looks at Bree> Horses?
Boys:
<Samuel smiles> Speakin’ of the barn… I talked to the contractor while I was waitin’ on you to get ready to come down here and he said they’re gonna be finishin’ up today.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Yeah.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Seriously? It seems like forever. I’m gonna miss the camper but I can’t wait to move into the house.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> I’m gettin’ kinda sick of the camper.
Boys:
<David smiles> Well, yeah. It’s a nice place to visit, but who the fuck would wanna live there?
Boys:
<Loch looks at David> Dude.. it’s not much worse than your old apartment.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Samuel> Yeah.. but it’s kind of like part of the family now. <smiles> And at the risk of sounding girly.. we’ve got some good memories there.
Boys:
<David nods> And now you know why I didn’t like havin’ a lot of company.
Boys:
<Samuel smiles at Bree> I’ll see what Jamie’ll take to get if off her hands.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> I dug the camper. <nods in agreement with David> But yeah.. I wouldn’t want to live there.
Girls:
<Bree smiles> It’s cool.. we’ll make new memories, and we can borrow it since they live right down the road.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> All right.
Boys:
<Genja looks at Kendra> His newly improved disposition creeps me out. Tell me it’s the painkillers.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Samuel, smiles>
Girls:
<Kendra looks at Genja> I think it’s all the happy shiny people.
Boys:
<Genja shakes his head> So it’s contagious. Fuck.
Girls:
<Kendra laughs> Apparently. <softly> Where’s Jenna? Wasn’t she meeting us for breakfast?
Boys:
<Genja nods> I thought she was.
Boys:
<Akhiro listens to everyone> So.. when are we going clubbing in D.C. again?
Girls:
<Kendra smiles> Maybe she’s taking the time to sleep.
Girls:
<Renee smiles> You call it babe and we’re there.
Boys:
<Akhiro smiles at Ren> All right. Loch’s not working Wednesday. <looks at Bree and Samuel> What about you two and Aubrey? Are you at the club Wednesday?
Boys:
<Loch looks at Akhiro> Let’s do it Saturday. Bree doesn’t work weekends and I can just take the night off.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree> You wanna go clubbin’?
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Sure.
Girls:
<Aubrey smiles> I can take the night off. <looks at Brennan> I’ll work another night instead.
Boys:
<Brennan nods to Aubrey> All right.
Girls:
<Taryn looks at Akhiro> What kind of clubbing are we talking about here?
Boys:
<Ethan leans over and whispers to Aubrey> Throw away his white tank top when he’s not looking. It’s old as shit and the black one looks *way* better.
Boys:
<Akhiro looks at Taryn> We’re not talking about sex clubs, if that’s what you’re worried about.
Girls:
<Aubrey whispers to Ethan>I noticed that too, and I will.
Girls:
<Taryn nods> It was and <smiles> Thank you.
Boys:
<Akhiro smiles> No problem. It’s just been a while since we all went out, got really fucked up and danced our asses off in a *real* club.
Girls:
<Taryn nods> A long while. <looks at David> Can we?
Boys:
<David looks at Taryn, smiles> Keep me away from the gin.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles> Keep Samuel away from the Tequila.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Aiden, arches a brow> Fuck and you.
Girls:
<Taryn nods> Of course.
Boys:
<Aiden laughs> Fine. Then make sure he doesn’t take his gun with him.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree> If I’m leavin’ mine home, better make sure you’ve got yours.
Girls:
<Ava looks at Aiden> Or we could go and make sure he *and* Bree leave their guns at home.

Boys:
<Aiden looks at Ava> That requires us to still be here Saturday. <smiles> You sayin’ you wanna stay?
Girls:
<Bree shakes her head, smiling> I don’t need to leave mine at home.
Girls:
<Ava smiles and nods> Sure. If you don’t have anything pressing at home. <looks at Kendra> We could stop in and give Silver a report on the club.. do a show maybe.
Boys:
<Genja looks at Bree, smiles> Why? You think you might need to shoot him again to get him to the altar?
Girls:
<Bree looks at Genja, then at Samuel, smiles teasingly> I don’t think so. <grins> He might have to shoot *me* though.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree, arches a brow> I don’t have to put holes in you to get you to the altar. I’ll just carry your ass to it. <blinks, looks at Genja like “what the fuck am I saying?”>
Boys:
<Genja smiles at Samuel> I have *no* idea who you are.
Boys:
<Samuel shakes his head, looks at Bree> Whatever you’re puttin’ in my food, you can stop.
Girls:
<Sangria laughs> Over your shoulder caveman style.
Boys:
<Samuel nods to Sangria > If I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna do it right.
Girls:
<Bree shakes her head> Not puttin’ anything in your food baby. It’s the air.
Boys:
<Aiden smiles at Bree> Bullshit. It’s the girl.
Girls:
<Taryn laughs> Oh you mean dragging her by the hair after you’ve knocked her out?
Girls:
<Sangria laughs> Yes that.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Taryn, smiles> If I knock her out, she can’t say “I do”, so I’ll have to settle for gettin’ her shitfaced enough to agree to anything.
Girls:
<Ava smiles> That’s exactly what it is. <leans in and whispers> He’s twitterpated…and if I ever say that word again.. shoot *me*.
Boys:
<Aiden looks at Ava, arches a brow> You ever say that again and I’m gonna shoot you twice. Once for sayin’ it and once for sayin’ it so I had to hear it.
Girls:
<Ava nods solemnly> Thank you.
Girls:
<Bree looks over at Aiden> Oooh what’d she say?
Boys:
<Aiden looks at Bree, arches a brow> Nothin’ you’re gonna hear. And if *you* make her say it again, I’ll shoot your ass, too.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Aiden and blinks> I can’t control what comes outta her mouth. <smiles playfully at Aiden> stick somethin’ in it and what comes out won’t be so offensive.
Girls:
<Ava blinks> Bree!
Boys:
<Van smiles> As long as she swallows anyway.
Girls:
<Ava looks over at Van and smiles wickedly> Oh.. I always swallow. It’s unbecoming for a girl to spit.
Boys:
<Genja leans over and whispers to Kendra> So.. I’m thinking of investing in a porn company.
Boys:
<Van looks at Ava, smiles again> *That* is a very good attitude to have.
Girls:
<Kendra smiles and whispers> That’s incredibly cool.. which one.
Boys:
<Genja nods subtly towards Van, whispers> Theirs.
Girls:
<Kendra softly> Do they know it yet?
Boys:
<Genja shakes his head, whispers> I’ll talk to them later. Privately. <smiles> I’m looking forward to the challenge of talking them into it considering what happened the last time we were here.
Girls:
<Kendra smiles> You know you’re going to have to talk to Siobhan too? <blinks> Oh.. <smiles thoughtfully> Siobhan is the PR person for Misanthropy. You could put in a word for them with Damien. They could play at the Confessional. Get on their good side right off the bat.
Boys:
<Genja looks at Kendra, smiles> I’ll call him when we’re done here.
Girls:
<Kendra nods, quietly> Cool. <leans in and whispers, telling him what she knows about Siobhan, Van and Seth, that she picked up from working with Siobhan and the girls for a week>
