What a Wonderful Caricature of Intimacy

Boys:
<Loch sits at the usual table with Saige, David and Taryn when Ethan and Sang walk in with Ryan>
Girls:
<Saige looks over at Loch> Is that *Ryan* with Sang and Ethan?
Boys:
<Loch and David look over, David arches a brow, Loch takes a drag of his cigarette> Don’t know anyone else in town that looks like that.
Boys:
<David looks at Taryn> Shit. I guess Ethan was serious about gettin’ new friends.
Girls:
<Taryn blinks> I haven’t seen him in a while. <looks at Ethan, Sang and Ryan> Guess so. <looks at David then Loch> They seem to be heading our way.
Boys:
<Loch shakes his head> Christ. Just what we need.
Boys:
<David nods> That boy can’t be right with all those dead bodies all over his house. <looks at Taryn> Guess I can’t really say much, though. They did right by Sarah, anyway.


Girls:
<Taryn nods> Yeah. <smiles> I kind of had a crush on him when we were in school.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Taryn> Yeah, well.. me and David kinda had a lot of fights with him in school.
Girls:
<Taryn looks at him> Why?
Boys:
<David nods, takes a drag off his cigarette, lowers his voice> Because he looks like a fag, he lives with dead people and when he’d talk in class, you couldn’t understand half the shit he said and he ended up makin’ the teachers look stupid.
Boys:
<Lock looks at David>Well.. our teachers actually *were* stupid.
Boys:
<David smiles> You think anyone smarter than you is stupid.
Boys:
<Loch rolls his eyes> Whatever. <looks at Taryn> And his taste in music sucks.
Girls:
<Saige smiles at Loch> Babe. He kind of reminds me of Tristan.
Boys:
<David looks at Taryn> And he reads pretentious shit, too. Or at least pretends to because it gets all the girls hot.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Saige> *Tristan* is part of the band and we had a few scrapes back in school, too.
Boys:
<Loch looks at David> He’s gotta do *somethin’* to get the girls hot. The corpses in the basement don’t help with that.
Girls:
<Saige shrugs> The corpses aren’t in the show room.
Boys:
<Loch and David look at Saige, Loch arches a brow> You’ve been in the showroom?
Girls:
<Saige nods> And the back of the hearse.
Boys:
<David looks at Loch> Hell. *We* were in the showroom just a couple of weeks ago.
Boys:
<David looks at Saige, smiles> If he acts surprised by that, I’m gonna slap him.
Girls:
<Saige shrugs> I walked through the showroom to get to the Hearse. Sang’s been in the showroom.
Boys:
<Loch smirks> *That* does not surprise me. Besides.. they went out for a while. I swear to god they get their hair done at the same place.
Boys:
<Tristan comes over from the bar with Nikki, sits down, whispers> You guys see who’s with Ethan and Sang?
Girls:
<Taryn smiles> Yeah.. we were just talking about that.. and how Sang and Saige are members of the Coffin Club.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Tristan> And how me and David used to kick his ass in high school.
Girls:
<Saige nods>
Boys:
<Tristan smiles at Taryn> Yeah, I remember that. I always thought the coffin bit was kind of cool. <looks at Loch> Don’t be an asshole. And I remember him handing you *your* ass a couple of times and the surprised look on your face when it finally happened.
Boys:
<David looks at Tristan> Who’s side are you on, anyway?
Girls:
<Nikki smiles knowingly> I like him.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at David> The brainiac who helped me set up my Shinto shrine.
Boys:
<David arches a brow>What the fuck is a Shinto shrine?
Boys:
<Tristan smiles> Ask Akhiro.
Boys:
<David rolls his eyes> *He’s* not here right now.
Boys:
<Tristan shake his head> Basically.. Japanese ancestor worship.
Boys:
<David looks at Taryn> Huh.
Girls:
<Taryn smiles> Huh.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Tristan> When the fuck did this happen?
Boys:
<Tristan shrugs> After I started hanging out with Akhiro and we started training together.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Saige> Guess you called that one.
Girls:
<Nikki looks at them> We’ve hooked up a few times.
Girls:
<Saige smiles>

Boys:
<the boys look at Nikki, Tristan smiles> So.. Saige, Sang and you. Guess he’s got good taste in women, anyway.
Boys:
<Loch shakes his head> So.. on top of everything *else* we’re divided on, now we can add American Horror Story boy to the list.
Girls:
<Nikki nods> And Ren.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Loch, smiles> You’re just jealous because he makes almost six figures a year.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Tristan, blinks> Get the fuck out.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> I wanna see dead people.
Boys:
<Tristan shakes his head> Swear to god. Funeral directors make an average of 60-95 thousand a year.
Girls:
<Taryn shakes her head, looks at David> We’re in the wrong business.
Boys:
<David looks at Taryn, smiles> Yeah, but at least *our* job don’t involve storing dead people in the basement.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Saige> You’re gonna ask for a tour, aren’t you?
Girls:
<Saige shakes her head> Uh.. no. <smiles> Not without you to protect me.
Boys:
<Loch smiles>
Boys:
<Ethan walks up to the table with Sang and Ryan, takes a seat, looks at the others> Hey.
