If It’s Love You’re Lookin’ For, I Can Give a Little More

The Cosmos:
{Camille looks at David} Music or sleep.
The Universe:
{David looks at Camille, smiles} You gonna watch me while I do that, too?
The Cosmos:
{Camille nods and smiles} Yes actually I am.
The Cosmos:
{Bree whispers to Loch} She takes him to her room we can search for hidden bottles.
The Universe:
{David smiles wickedly} You gonna sleep *with* me?
The Universe:
{Loch nods to Bree, whispers} When’s he had time to stash any? He was too drunk last night and didn’t even know where he lived.
The Cosmos:
{Camille shakes her head} Nope. Not until you don’t smell like a distillery.
The Cosmos:
{Bree nods} True.
The Universe:
{David looks at her for a second, nods} Right. Kinda thought the shower I took this mornin’ took care of that. {pulls his drumsticks out of his back pocket} That’s all right, though, because I wasn’t plannin’ on goin’ back to bed anyway.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at David} You ready to go? We can fuck around til everyone else gets there.
The Cosmos:
{Camille nods} The shower didn’t take care of the four cups you had this morning.
The Universe:
{David nods, twirls one of the sticks through his fingers} Let’s do it.
The Universe:
{David stands, looks at Camille} Yeah, well..neither did you.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Eden} I’ll see you later?
The Cosmos:
{Camille arches her brow} No I didn’t and that was my bad.. .I’m doing what I can *now*.
The Cosmos:
{Eden looks at Ethan} Yeah.
The Cosmos:
{Izzy smiles} I’m gonna go see who’s trucks got here.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Izzy, smiles} Keep me informed. I’m going to get David to his drum set so he can remember why he gets up every morning.
The Cosmos:
{Izzy nods and smiles} I totally will.
The Cosmos:
{Camille stands, As do Izzy and Nikki, Nikki to Izzy} I’ll come with you.
The Universe:
{Ethan grabs David by the shoulder, smiles at Camille} Breakfast was really good, thank you. He’ll thank you later. {pulls David toward the door}
The Cosmos:
{Camille looks at Ethan and nods} I’ll be in, in a few.
The Cosmos:
{Emily goes to the kitchen as Izzy and Nikki head out}
The Universe:
{Brennan and Van watch Ethan drag David out}
The Cosmos:
{Camille shakes her head, mutters something in Italian}
The Universe:
{Loch looks at Camille} You’re not expectin’ it to be easy, are ya?
The Cosmos:
{Camille looks at Loch, pushes her hair behind one ear} No. I’m not. But I intend to fight him every step of the way if I have to.
The Universe:
{Loch nods} I’ll be there with you. My dad was an alchy.
The Cosmos:
{Camille nods} Had a brother that was. He ended up hating me. {softly} He also ended up dead.
The Universe:
{Loch nods} My old man ended up dead, too.
The Cosmos:
{Camille looks at Loch} I’m sorry.
The Universe:
{Loch shrugs} It happens. And I really don’t need sympathy, so don’t worry about givin’ it to me.
The Cosmos:
{Camille nods} It wasn’t… {shakes her head} Yeah..okay.. anyway.. I’m going to head to the music room and make sure he hates me enough.
The Universe:
{Loch smiles} We’ll come with you.
The Universe:
{Loch shrugs} He can spread the hate around.
The Cosmos:
{Bree nods} Yes we will. {Camille smiles} Let’s do it then. {heads for the door}
The Universe:
{Loch follows Bree}

The Cosmos:
{Lia looks at Ro, softly} What are you up to this morning?
The Universe:
{Ro watches them go, looks at Lia} You know, I actually hadn’t made any.. {sighs} Shit. {glances around} Looking for my wayward roommate.
The Cosmos:
{Lia shakes her head} Shaggy hair? The one Camille and Eden were talking to?
The Cosmos:
{Eden and Ava leave and go in separate directions}
The Universe:
{Ro looks back at Lia} Aaron, yes.
The Cosmos:
{Lia nods} Once Camille got distracted he went that way. {points the way Aaron sneaked out} I think he was trying to get out under Cam’s radar.
The Universe:
{Ro smiles} He was probably trying to get out under everyone’s.
The Cosmos:
{Lia smiles} He doesn’t like people much does he?
The Universe:
{Ro shakes his head} Not really. He doesn’t seem to like much of anything. Not even his bed.
The Cosmos:
{Lia frowns} Maybe I can talk to him.. I have a knack for getting people to open up to me. I did some volunteer work at the local funeral home grief counseling and just talking to people.
The Universe:
{Ro looks at her} He’s… got some issues. He’s apparently been in and out of institutions for the mentally… unsound.
The Cosmos:
{Lia looks over at him} Okay..still You just talk like you would anyone else.
The Universe:
{Ro smiles} Which is generally what I do. I hope you have a thick skin. He can be rather abrasive.
The Cosmos:
{Lia laughs} The thickest. I had Nat for a sister.
The Universe:
{Ro nods, looks around again} I really should go find him. Find out where he’s been sleeping. {looks back at her} He’s a sneaky little bastard, I’ll give him that.
The Cosmos:
{Lia nods} All right.. If you want me to tag along I can.. If not I understand.
The Universe:
{Ro smiles} If you’d like. I really don’t have the first clue where to start so I’ll probably be at it for a while.
The Cosmos:
{Lia smiles} I’ll go with you until I need to pack lunch. Then I’ll leave you to it. Do that. I’ll call you when it’s ready. If you’ve found him great..if not… I’ll find you and we can eat where you are and then continue the search.
The Universe:
{Ro smiles again} Sounds like a plan.
The Cosmos:
{Lia stands} Or we can get one of the ghouls to summon him.
The Universe:
{Ro stands when she does} We could, but that wouldn’t help me find where he’s been sleeping.
The Cosmos:
{Lia smiles} You could try asking him..and if that doesn’t work.. then follow him once he’s *here* and goes back.
The Universe:
{Ro looks at her} You realize you’re nuking all my excuses to spend the day walking around with you talking, right?
The Cosmos:
{Lia laughs} Sorry..and Here I was trying to save you time so we could just hang out.
The Universe:
{Ro nods} And hanging out is good. But looking for Aaron has the added benefit of exploring the castle.
The Cosmos:
{Lia smiles} Yes it does. So..we could do that.
The Universe:
{Ro smiles} We’re going to do that while we look for Aaron. Rumor has it there are {whispers} Secret passages.
The Cosmos:
{Lia blinks, quietly} Really. {stacks their dishes because no one’s taken them}
The Universe:
{Ro nods} Really. {smiles} And what’s more exciting than that?
The Cosmos:
{Lia shakes her head} I can only think of one or two things, and I’m going to be doing one while looking.
The Universe:
{Ro looks at her curiously} What’s that?
The Cosmos:
{Lia drops her eyes} Getting to know someone new.
The Universe:
{Ro smiles} Oh, that’s terribly exciting too.
The Cosmos:
{Lia looks up at him} The other one we might get to..but not today.
The Universe:
{Ro smiles again} I’m more fond of journey’s than destinations.
The Cosmos:
{Lia nods} Me too. It’s the road that gets you there that’s the most interesting.
The Universe:
{Ro nods} Exactly. {smiles} Let me help you with the dishes.
The Cosmos:
{Lia looks at him} I’m just going to carry them to the kitchen.. {smiles}
The Universe:
{Ro nods} All right.
The Cosmos:
{Lia takes the dishes into the kitchen leaves them with Em who’s loading the dishwasher and Comes back out}
The Universe:
{Ro looks at her when she comes back in, smiles} Are you ready to start our grand adventure?
The Cosmos:
{Lia nods} I am. {smiles brightly, blinks} Wait. {runs back into the kitchen and comes back out with a small back pack with a few bottles of water and some snackables, walks up to him} *Now* I’m ready.
The Universe:
{Ro smiles again} We’re off to see the Wizard. {offers her his arm}
The Cosmos:
{Lia smiles takes his arm, looks down} Damn. I forgot my ruby slippers.
The Universe:
{Ro laughs} Well, hopefully we won’t get penalized for that. {heads for the door}
The Cosmos:
{Lia smiles} They were only good for her to get home any way.
The Universe:
{Ro smiles} True. And apparently, we’re already there.
The Cosmos:
{Lia nods} Yes we are. So.. {grins} Vampires, werewolves and ghouls oh my.
The Universe:
{Ro laughs again} So who’s the wicked witch?
The Cosmos:
{Lia smiles} We haven’t met her yet?
The Cosmos:
{Lia shrugs} Maybe we’ll meet her on our explorations. {heads out the door with him}
