Shaking the Foundations

Boys:
<meanwhile, Tristan heads toward the lake with Nikki>
Girls:
<Nikki looks over at Tristan, smiles>
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Nikki, takes her hand, smiles> So, other than the big blowout with Aubrey and Brennan, how’d the night go?
Girls:
<Nikki squeezes his hand> It went okay.. You guys were incredible and I know Hayden was touched by your tribute.
Boys:
<Tristan nods> Cool. Sang said you looked pretty rough when you got there.

 

Boys:
<ten minutes later, Tristan pulls into the diner, parks and heads inside>
Boys:
<Akhiro sits at a table drinking his bad coffee with Ren, Ryan, Ethan and Sang>
Girls:
<Sang has a plate of egg rolls and wontons on the table, looks over at Tristan when he comes in>
Boys:
<Tristan walks up to the table, looks at Sang> Let me ask you something. Do you feel safe with Ethan?
Girls:
<Sang looks at Tristan like he’s high> Of course I do.
Boys:
<the boys look at Tristan, Ethan blinks> What the hell?
Boys:
<Tristan nods> Good answer. <slides into the booth next to Ren and Akhiro> Now tell me what I meant by “feel safe”.
Girls:
<Sang looks at him> Do I trust him? Does he make me feel like nothing can touch me.
Boys:
<Tristan nods> But *how*? I mean touch you how.
Boys:
<Tristan shakes his head> I mean.. when I asked you that, you knew I meant physically *and* emotionally, right?
Girls:
<Sang looks at Tristan> Yes. I did.
Girls:
<Sang pushes the egg rolls toward Tristan>
Boys:
<Tristan looks at her> Now let me ask you something else. Do you feel safe with Ryan? <takes an egg roll>
Boys:
<Ryan arches a brow> Where are you going with this?
Boys:
<Tristan holds up a finger> Just.. bear with me on this. <takes a bite>
Boys:
<Ryan shakes his head> All right.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Sang> Scratch that. Do you feel safe with Loch?
Girls:
<Sang looks at Ryan, thinks about it, frowns> Yes and no.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at her> You’re talking about Loch?
Girls:
<Sang nods> I am and I need to clarify that. I know that if I were getting beaten down by someone in the parking lot.. he’d stop them. <thinks again> You know.. I think I would.. he wouldn’t be the first or even second person I called if I needed help.. But yeah.. he’s on that list.
Boys:
<Tristan nods> You feel safe with him physically, but not emotionally.
Girls:
<Sang nods> Yes.. and I may get there too.. I just don’t know yet.
Boys:
<Tristan nods> So what does “I’ve never felt in danger with him” sound like to you? As a response to that question.
Boys:
<Akhiro takes a sip of his coffee, listening>
Girls:
<Renee looks at Tristan> Like the person answering feels physically safe. But not necessarily emotionally. <Sang nods>
Boys:
<Tristan looks at them> Do you guys realize that *Saige* was the least complicated relationship I have *ever* had?
Boys:
<Ethan smiles >That wasn’t a “relationship”.
Girls:
<Sang nods> It really wasn’t.
Boys:
<Tristan nods> Still. I was fucking her and it wasn’t complicated. And right now, if she was available and offering, I’d go right back to that *happily*.
Boys:
<Akhiro looks at Tristan, smiles> So what happened?
Girls:
<Sang smiles> Well you could always hit up Aubrey.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Sang, smiles> Seriously. <looks at them> So.. we’re in the car and we’re headed out to the lake and we start talking about shit and she tells me about talking to Ryan in the alley and how he still has feelings for her.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Tristan, blinks> Wait…
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Ryan> Hold on. There’s more.
Boys:
<Ryan shakes his head> All right, but.. I really want to explain that.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Ryan> You *told* her?
Boys:
<Ryan shakes his head> Not.. exactly. I mean.. it’s not.. like it sounds at *all*.
Girls:
<Renee and Sang listen>
Boys:
<Tristan nods> We’ll get to it. <looks at Sang> So, I ask her if she has feelings for *him* because I’m thinking that’s a perfectly logical question.
Girls:
<Sang nods> It is. And one I think most people would ask.
Boys:
<Ryan shakes his head> Should I even *be* here for this?
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Ryan> I already thought about that, but.. why not? It involves you, too. And I’d rather talk about it in front of you than behind your back. <looks at Sang> Yeah, well.. every time we start talking about Ryan, she suddenly develops a complete inability to answer a simple yes or no question with a simple yes or no answer.
Girls:
<Sang nods knowingly> Yeah.. because she doesn’t want to give you a definitive answer. Because a yes ends it with you.. and a no ends it with him.
Boys:
<Tristan nods> Well, what I got was.. I like him, we’re friends, I don’t see it going any further than that. And I told her she was dodging the question and I get… Yes, she has feelings for him, but they don’t overshadow her feelings for me and I’m the last thing she thinks about at night and the first thing in the morning.
Girls:
<Sang frowns>
Boys:
<Ryan shakes his head, looks toward the doors> Which sounds *exactly* like something I’d say.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Sang> Kinda leaves all the hours in between, though, doesn’t it?
Girls:
<Sang nods> Kinda… <looks at Ryan> Why would you say it?
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Sang> I’d say it if I was avoiding the question and couldn’t *completely* avoid it. But that’s me.
Girls:
<Sang nods> Which is why she was saying it. I’d bet you anything.
Boys:
<Ryan nods> That said.. this really *is* a conversation I shouldn’t be here for. So.. I’m out. <gets up and heads for the door>
Boys:
<Akhiro watches him go> Damn. <looks at Tristan> Why?
Girls:
<Renee looks at Akhiro> Should I go after him?
Boys:
<Tristan shakes his head, looks at Akhiro> Because right now, I actually trust *him* more than her. Because when I ask *him* a question, he gives me a straight answer.
Boys:
<Akhiro nods to Tristan, looks at Ren> I don’t know. Do you think he should hear this?
Girls:
<Renee shrugs> I don’t know.
Girls:
<Sang looks at Renee and Akhiro> I don’t think he wants to because he doesn’t want to hear she doesn’t want him.
Boys:
<Ethan shakes his head> I’ll get him. Because she kinda threw him under the bus with that bit about him telling her he has feelings for her.
Girls:
<Sang nods> Yeah she did.
Boys:
<Ethan nods> And for that alone, he should have the chance to tell his side of it.
Boys:
<Tristan nods to Ethan> Which is part of the reason I’m talking about it in front of him.
Girls:
<Sang nods> You want me to go get him?
Boys:
<Ethan looks at her, smiles> Afraid I’ll hear the gossip first?
Girls:
<Sang smiles> Babe.. I know you’ll tell me whatever he tells you.
Boys:
<Akhiro rolls his eyes, looks at Ren> By the time they decide who’s going after him, he’s going to be in his front yard.
Boys:
<Ethan nods> Yes, I will. <gets up and heads after Ryan>
Girls:
<Sang smiles and watches him go>
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Sang> Explain to me how damn near every woman in the world bitches about how men won’t talk to them and I keep ending up with the rare ones that won’t talk to *me*.
Girls:
<Sang shakes her head> I wish I could. I really wish I could.
Boys:
<Tristan takes another bite of his eggroll> She keeps giving me overly complex answers that don’t really answer the question. Most of them set off my bullshit alarm *and* I have to resort to bullying or nagging to get an answer at all and I *hate* the way I always feel like an asshole because I keep badgering them. <looks at Sang> Oh.. and I lost my patience and hit her with the furtive glances thing, right? She lists off *all* the guys she looked at and *then* says “I didn’t realize that wasn’t allowed”.
Girls:
<Sang blinks> Oh.. defensive much.
Boys:
<Tristan nods> And when I told her I wasn’t having a discussion that entailed unnecessary snide comments, she starts telling me repeatedly how she wasn’t being snide. That was totally snide.
Boys:
<Akhiro nods> At the very least, it was sarcastic which isn’t far from being the same thing.
Girls:
<Sang nods> And Nikki’s not usually sarcastic or snide.. which tells me you backed her into a corner.
Boys:
<Tristan nods> At which point, I pretty much just gave up, Sang.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at them> *Then*.. after all this and I’m frustrated and surfing the crest of pissed, she hits me with how she just wants to go home and be held.
Boys:
<Akhiro arches a brow> Oh.. wow.
Girls:
<Sang shakes her head> Wow.. <Pulls out her phone and pulls up Aubrey’s number>
Girls:
<Renee shakes her head> That’s manipulative.
Boys:
<Tristan shakes his head, looks at Sang> I swear to god, Sang, at that point, I just wanted to laugh her out of the car. Really? You’re going to go through all this shit, put *me* through all this shit, then when you *know* I’m frustrated, expect me to just forget everything and “hold” you? And then, of course, if I don’t, I’m an asshole. I *try* to be a good boyfriend, Sang, and be attentive and all that, but I’m not a fucking machine. I can’t just turn all that shit off because you said “hold me”.
Boys:
<Akhiro nods to Ren> And *tons* of women pull that shit *all* the time.
Girls:
<Renee nods> Totally.. <Sang shakes her head> I have no clue what’s up with her. At. All. But this is crap.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Ren> Oh, it gets better. When I dropped her off, she says something about how she’s basically worried about us breaking up over the trust issue because I told her she didn’t trust me with the truth about her and Ryan. What the fuck? Does she *not* see that me having to go to her *ex* to get the truth and straight answers is seriously fucked up?
Girls:
<Renee looks at Tristan> It’s totally fucked up.
Girls:
<Sang hands Tristan her phone>
Boys:
<Tristan shakes his head> And I’m not even asking because I’m jealous. It’s part of her history, you know? <looks at Sang, takes the phone> What am I doing?
Boys:
<Ethan comes back in with Ryan and a look on his face like “wow”>
Girls:
<Sang smiles> Look at the picture.
Boys:
<Ethan walks up to the table with Ryan, looks at Sang> I told him I’m not letting him bail until he tells you guys what he just told me.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at the picture, looks at Sang> *Now*, Sang? Can we finish the bitch fest first?
Girls:
<Sang looks at Ethan, then at Ryan> Spill. <Sang looks over at Tristan> Babe.. you call now she’ll be here by the time the bitch fest is over.
Girls:
<Sang looks at Akhiro>
Boys:
<Tristan shakes his head, slides the phone back to Sang> I’m not single *yet*, Sang.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Ryan> Go ahead.
Girls:
<Sang looks at Tristan> All right. <looks at Ryan>
Boys:
<Ryan rolls his eyes, sits back down, looks at the others as Ethan sits back down, Ryan> Okay. We went outside because she started telling me about the body she caught today and said it was a bad one. And bad usually means horrific. And since I didn’t think she could or should really get into detail around everyone else, we went outside. While we were there, I apologized to her for talking to Tristan about us because it wasn’t really my place to say anything. That was really between them.
Boys:
<Ryan pulls out his cigarettes and lights one> Anyway.. we started talking about what *did* happen between us but it was just.. you know.. how she listened to people who told her I was never going to take it to the next level and shit like that. Then we started talking about work again. And at some point, our firsts came up and I told her about my first time which led us back into talking about us again. So.. we’re talking about how neither of us wanted “us” to be about that accident. And she said something about ” how I felt about you”. And *I* said.. as much as I wanted to ask how that was and tell her how *I’d* felt about *her*.. we shouldn’t open that door. <looks at Tristan> And then I said.. if and when circumstances change.. meaning if she found herself single again.. I’d be more than willing to open it *then*. And that was *it*. That was my huge declaration.
Boys:
<Ryan shakes his head> I did *not* drag her outside just to get her alone and confess my undying love for her.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Sang> Hell, I *wouldn’t* do that. Not while she’s with someone. Especially someone I like who’s the brother of someone I like better who’s the girlfriend of someone I like just as much. That would be epically fucked up.
Girls:
<Sang nods> I know you wouldn’t.
Boys:
<Ryan takes a breath> And I wouldn’t want our second time around based on *that*.
Boys:
<Tristan shakes his head> *None* of which she told me. Just.. he still has feelings.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Tristan> Well.. I’m thinking details are kind of important in a situation like this. Unless she’s *trying* to make us hate each other.
Girls:
<Sang nods again> Or trying to make Tristan break up with her.
Boys:
<Ryan shakes his head> There is a line and I’m pretty goddamn sure I didn’t cross it.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Sang> She’s smarter than that. You want a guy to break up with you, you don’t tell him your sort of ex said he has feelings for you. That just makes him want to kick the other guy’s ass.
Boys:
<Ethan nods> It’s true. Most guys will hold on tighter in that situation.
Girls:
<Renee looks at Sang nods> Yeah..
Girls:
<Sang shrugs> Then I got nothing.
Boys:
<Akhiro shakes his head> There are a lot of women that want men to fight for them, but there are also a lot of women that want men that will wait on them. I’m guessing Ryan’s a waiter.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Akhiro> Fighting for a girl who’s with another guy is.. basically fucking with her life. You know? It makes no sense. If she was single, that would be one thing. but she’s not. And I’m not going to go and try and fuck up something she has that makes her happy. That would be incredibly selfish.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Sang> Yeah. *That*. That’s how I felt about you. <smiles> So.. I guess that makes me a waiter too.
Girls:
<Sang shakes her head> So what? All this is because she’s having a bad day?
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Sang> Oh, you know better than that. What’s the number one go to of the women you know who find themselves in this situation?
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Tristan> “I’m confused.”
Boys:
<Tristan nods> Exactly.
Boys:
<Akhiro smiles> Or.. “I don’t want to hurt anyone”. I like Hayden’s methods *much* better. She said at the table, when I figure out what I want or need, I do everything in my power to get it. Or something to that affect.
Girls:
<Sang looks at them> So force her to decide.
Girls:
<Renee shakes her head> Decide for her.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Sang> If she’s playing both ends against the middle, that’s only going to work if we *both* confront her at the same time. And honestly, I don’t know about Ryan, but if she’s not *sure* she wants me, I’m pretty sure I *don’t* want *her*.
Girls:
<Sang nods> There is that.
Boys:
<Ethan shakes his head> Seriously. But if you decide for her, then whoever she ends up with *if* she ends up with one of you will always be wondering if she wanted the other one.
Boys:
<Ryan shakes his head, looks at them> Stop.
Girls:
<the girls look at Ryan>
Boys:
<the boys look at Ryan>
Boys:
<Ryan looks at them> When you *really* want someone… you think about them nonstop. You *don’t* get with someone else or *stay* with someone else if you know you have a chance with them. They consume every waking thought and sometimes your dreams.
Girls:
<Sang nods> That’s true.
Boys:
<Ryan shrugs> She’s already made her decision. She’s staying with Tristan. She doesn’t see us going farther than friends. There’s no great mystery here.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at them> If she *really* wanted *me*… she’d be with me.
Boys:
<Akhiro nods> As evidenced by what happened with Brennan and Hayden.
Girls:
<Sang nods>
Boys:
<Ryan nods to Akhiro> Exactly. <looks at Tristan> So.. go back to your girlfriend, quit worrying about the ex she’s friends with and worry about fixing your trust and communication issues.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Sang> I should be going out with *him*.
Girls:
<Sang bursts out laughing> Tristan… <shakes her head>
Boys:
<Tristan smiles>
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Tristan, smiles> You’re cute but you’re not *that* cute.
Boys:
<Ethan smiles> Seriously.
Boys:
<Akhiro smiles, shakes his head>
Boys:
<Tristan smiles at Ryan, sighs> Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.
Girls:
<A girl in glasses and a lab coat over her clothes walks into the diner, goes to the counter and speaks quietly to the server>
Girls:
<Sang smiles at Tristan> It’d make all those rumors trolling through town true.
Boys:
<Ryan smiles at Tristan> Yeah, well.. I’m thinking your biggest obstacle is your latent homosexuality. Once you come to terms with that, you’ll have plenty of S.O.’s to choose from. In the meantime, I’ll *still* have bodies in the basement.
Girls:
<Sang laughs> Still think you should prop them in your living room like a proper creepy guy.
Boys:
<Ryan looks over at the girl talking to the waitress, frowns> Shit.
Girls:
<Sang looks at Ryan> What’s wrong?
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Sang> Yeah.. and I totally should. <shakes his head> Nothing. That’s Nikki’s assistant who’s name I can never remember.
Boys:
<Ryan sighs> The one she was encouraging me to go out with.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Tristan> Which is yet even more evidence she wants you.
Boys:
<the boys look over, Tristan arches a brow> Whoa. <looks at Sang> She’s hot.
Boys:
<Ethan smiles> I’d probably think so too if there wasn’t a giant censor bar over her face.
Boys:
<Akhiro smiles>
Girls:
<Sang smiles at Tristan> Yes she is. <Sang smiles> I’ve got this. <Sang bounces over to the waitress> Hi.. I’d like to order a double thick chocolate shake.
Boys:
<Ethan blinks when Sang bounces, smiles broadly> Oh, my god, she just bounced. <grins at Tristan> Sang *bounced*.
Boys:
<Tristan smiles> It’s about time.
Boys:
<Ethan takes a deep breath> Oh, shit that makes me happy. <looks at Akhiro> The world’s right again.
Boys:
<Akhiro smiles, nods> Yes, it is.
Girls:
<Sang looks over at the girl> Hi! I’m Sangria! <smiles brightly> Don’t you work with Nikki, my brother, Tristan’s girlfriend?
Boys:
<the boys watch Sang, Ryan, quietly to Ethan> guess I better start wearing my sunglasses again.
Girls:
<the girl blinks, and smiles shyly> Um.. yeah. I do. I’m Devon.
Boys:
<Akhiro blinks, looks at Ren> I wonder what kind of information we could pry out of the *assistant* about Nikki’s… interests.
Girls:
<Sang smiles> Nice to meet you. You should come hang out with us. Tristan is over there, Nikki was tired and went home early. So’s Ryan and the other two are Akhiro and Renee.
Boys:
<Tristan whispers to the other boys> Since when are geeky girls built like *that*?
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Tristan, smiles> You don’t *really* think I hang out at the library *just* for the books, do you?
Girls:
<Devon shakes her head> Oh.. um .. uh.. no thanks I don’t want to intrude. I was just picking up my dinner and heading home to study.
Boys:
<Ethan laughs, whispers> Snap off a picture of *her* and see how fast Loch, David and Brennan get library cards.
Girls:
<Sang shakes her head> Pfft. you have to eat it so you may as well do that here. <the server puts the bag in front of Devon and Devon pays her, Sang plucks the bag off the bar and carries it over to the table, all but dragging Devon over, grins> Devon this is everyone.. guys this is Devon.
Girls:
<Devon smiles shyly again> Um.. hi. <looks at Ryan> It’s nice to see you again. <looks at Tristan, Ethan and Akhiro> It’s nice to meet you.. I’ve seen you play. You’re really good. <Devon closes her eyes and shakes her head, just knowing how retarded she sounded>


Boys:
<Ryan smiles at Devon> I know the breathers are kind of intimidating en masse like this, but I’ve been researching them extensively, and I haven’t been bitten yet.
Boys:
<Ethan smiles at Devon> It’s nice to meet you, too.
Girls:
<Devon smiles more securely at Ryan, looks at Ethan> Thanks. <Renee smiles> We only bite if you ask us too. Sit down and stay a bit.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Ren, smiles> *That’s* my problem. I keep forgetting to ask for it.
Girls:
<Devon looks at Ryan again smiles, shakes her head> I really have to get going. <looks at Tristan, smiles again> It’s nice to finally meet you.
Boys:
<Tristan smiles> Yeah, you, too. How come I haven’t before this?
Girls:
<Renee laughs> That’s totally it.
Girls:
<Devon shrugs> You haven’t come to the morgue?
Boys:
<Ryan shake his head> Mental note to self.. breathers actually *respond* when spoken to.
Boys:
<Tristan smiles> True. But you’ve been to the shows.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Tristan> Nikki’s ashamed of her ghoul friends.
Boys:
<Ryan smiles> Which is why she never likes to talk about me, either.
Girls:
<Devon looks down> I usually get there late and have to leave early. <looks at Ryan> Not true.. she’s tried to introduce me. <smiles> I just always smell like the lab.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Devon, smiles> These people don’t care about that. Hell.. Hayden smelled me the other night just to let me know I didn’t smell like embalming fluid because I can never tell. They’re nice and polite that way.
Boys:
<Ethan blinks, laughs> Hayden *smelled* you?
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Ethan> Did I forget to mention that?
Boys:
<Ethan grins> Uh.. *yeah*.
Girls:
<Devon smiles> Some girl *smelled* you? And you didn’t drag her off to the nearest drawer? <blinks and looks down> Crap.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Devon> Um… wow. <smiles> I’m not even sure how to.. <sighs> Yeah, I know. I kind of fail at life which is probably why I excel at death so much.
Girls:
<Devon looks at Ryan, softly> I’m sorry.. I shouldn’t have.. <Grabs her bag> Yeah.. um.. I really should go.
Boys:
<Ethan blinks when Devon says what she says about the drawer, looks at Sang> Wow. So.. I guess word around the morgue is Ryan’s a horndog.
Boys:
<Ryan shakes his head> It’s all right. It just surprised me.
Girls:
<Devon shakes her head> No.. that’s not it. <looks at Ryan> I really shouldn’t have said anything.
Boys:
<Akhiro looks at Devon, smiles> Wait… so.. does he have a rep or.. was Nikki talking about it?
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Akhiro> And if she didn’t know it was specifically Nikki, now she does. I’m not sure that’s better. Especially for Nikki who has to *work* there.
Boys:
<Akhiro looks at Ryan> Shit. True. I’m sorry. <shakes his head> I shouldn’t have asked that.
Girls:
<Devon shakes her head> I knew it was Nikki and No she doesn’t talk about it.. It was one of the guards.
Boys:
<Ryan looks at Devon> How.. does the guard know? And.. I totally just verified. <shakes his head> Fuck.
Girls:
<Devon shrugs> I guess he was patrolling.. I didn’t listen to the whole story..I was busy trying to get away from him.
Boys:
<Ryan nods, rakes his hand through his hair>
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Devon> I’m guessing he’s a creeper. <smiles> The guard. Not Ryan.
Girls:
<Devon smiles> Don’t worry I won’t tell her that you dimed her out. <nods at Tristan> Totally.
Boys:
<Tristan smiles> Why does that not surprise me?
Boys:
<Ryan gets up and walks out>
Boys:
<the boys watch Ryan go, Ethan looks at Devon> Don’t worry. That’s not about you.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Sang> I think this time we’ll let him go.
Girls:
<Devon watches Ryan go, blinks, quietly> I’m sorry.. I didn’t.. <sighs> *This* is why I don’t venture out.. <shakes her head> I’ve got to go.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Devon> Babe.. really. You didn’t do that. We’ve had kind of a fucked up night.
Boys:
<Akhiro nods> Seriously fucked up and yet.. not as fucked up as some we’ve been having lately.
Girls:
<Devon looks at Tristan, nods> All right.. Still..
Boys:
<Akhiro looks at Ren> Should we fill her in?
Girls:
<Ren nods> Probably…
Boys:
<Akhiro nods, looks at Devon> Nikki’s with Tristan and has feelings for Ryan who has feelings for her and she told Tristan tonight that Ryan has those feelings, kind of throwing him under the bus in the way she did it because it came out sounding a bit different than what actually happened or how it came to be said. Meanwhile, Tristan and Nikki are having problems because *she* won’t give him a straight, honest answer about her and Ryan. So.. we have a little bit of a triangle here and all of it revolves around Nikki and Ryan starting their relationship fucking like animals in the morgue.
Boys:
<Akhiro shrugs> An episode *neither* of them is particularly proud of.
Girls:
<Devon blinks> Crap. <shakes her head, turns and heads out the door to find Ryan>
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Akhiro, smiles> Nice job, Akhiro.
Boys:
<Tristan and Akhiro watch her go, Akhiro> Yeah.. not really the reaction I was expecting. But that *is* a nice ass. Just not as nice as Ren’s.
Girls:
<Sang smiles> She’ll be back she forgot her food.
Girls:
<Renee laughs> You’re partial to mine because I don’t slap you when you grab it.
Boys:
<Akhiro looks at Ren, smiles> I’m partial to yours because you smile when I grab it and I happen to love the way you smile.
Boys:
<Tristan smiles> And because she grabs yours back.
Boys:
<Akhiro nods to Tristan> *Always* a plus.
Girls:
<Sang laughs, looks at Tristan> So You going to take Ryan’s advice?
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Sang, smiles> Come to terms with my latent homosexuality?
Girls:
<Sang smiles> Babe.. I think that went out the window when Devon walked in. <grins and deepens her voice mimicking Tristan> “Whoa, She’s hot.”
Boys:
<Tristan laughs> You saw her right?
Girls:
<Sang nods> Of course I did.
Boys:
<Tristan shrugs> So, I was just stating a fact.
Girls:
<Renee laughs> Riight.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Tristan, smiles >Yeah, but this it the ‘assistant” Nikki and Ryan were talking about at the Rock last night who’s all but elevated him to rock star status or something.
Boys:
<Akhiro nods> I wonder how she’d feel if she knew that little miss hot and geeky was chasing Thanatos himself down outside right now.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Akhiro, smiles> Nice.
Boys:
<Akhiro smiles at Ethan> You like that? It’s not easy getting greco-roman death god references into every day conversation.
Girls:
<Sang smiles pulls out her phone> I could text her.
Boys:
<Ethan laughs> Oh, I know. I try and fail daily. <looks at Sang, smiles>
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Sang> Yes. I’m betting she plays it off like she’s happy about it.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Tristan, smiles> What are we betting? Because *I’m* thinking, even if she’s *not* leaving you for him, if she has feelings for him, she’s not going to be thrilled regardless.
Girls:
<Sang texts Nikki that Devon showed at the diner and just left to chase down Ryan>
Girls:
<Nikki sends back to Sang> Really? That’s great. Maybe he’ll get her name. <Sang sends back> He already has it.
Girls:
<Sang shows the text to Tristan, smiles>
Boys:
<Tristan looks at the text, nods>
Boys:
<meanwhile, outside>
