Stuck in the Middle With You

The Universe:
{while Loch is exploring Bree’s body and piercings, Tristan and Christopher are in the music room playing with Ethan and a very wasted David}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe watches the boys play. Heather sits next to her on the couch listening, Aubrey dances around}
The Universe:
{Ethan sings and plays lead while Christopher backs him on the rhythm, David plays like tomorrow’s never gonna come}

“No” is a dirty word,
Never gonna say it first,
“No” is just a thought that never crosses my mind.
Maybe in the parking lot,
Better bring your friend along,
Better off together than just one at a time.

The Cosmos:
{Chloe smiles listening}

 

The Universe:
{Ethan’s voice is much smoother and a little higher than Loch’s but still has that rocker edge to it}

The Cosmos:
{Summer wanders in looking for Christopher, smiles seeing him playing}
The Universe:
{the boys join in the chorus}

S is for the simple need.
E is for the ecstasy.
X is just to mark the spot,
Because that’s the one you really want.
(Yes!) Sex is always the answer, it’s never a question,
‘Cause the answer’s yes, oh the answers (Yes)
Not just a suggestion, if you ask the question,
Then it’s always yes. Yeah!

The Universe:
{Ethan is also a contrast to Loch in how he looks more like the boy next door, his movements tend to be more fluid and smooth}
The Cosmos:
{Summer stands and listens for a few minutes before settling herself on the couch}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe tilts her head as she listens}
The Universe:
{Cameron walks in with Summer, also curious about why Christopher was summoned, leans against the doorway listening and watching for a few minutes}
The Universe:
{Ethan is also obviously a lot more comfortable with the sexually themed songs than people would expect, though he doesn’t generally shy away from the subject during conversation, he’s much more forward with it when he’s performing which is why he has no problem singing the next verse to Chloe}

I’m loving what you wanna wear,
I wonder what’s up under there?
Wonder if I’ll ever have it under my tongue?
I’d love to try to set you free,
All of you all over me.
Love hearin’ the sound you make the second you’re done.

The Universe:
{David lip syncs the words along with Ethan to Aubrey while he plays}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe smiles and yells over the music to Ethan} Bring it baby!
The Cosmos:
{Aubrey smiles wickedly at David}
The Universe:
{Ethan smiles when Chloe yells} Remember you said that…

{as they rip into the chorus again}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe laughs, looks at Heather} As if I’d forget.

The Universe:
{Cameron walks into the room, takes a seat next to Summer} They’re good.
The Universe:
{Cameron looks at Summer, smiles} I’m surprised Chris isn’t freaking out over the subject matter, though.
The Cosmos:
{Summer nods} They really are. {smiles} Me too actually.. but he’s not singing it.
The Universe:
{Cameron nods} He tell you about the mix tape conversation?
The Cosmos:
{Summer shakes her head} No.. he didn’t.
The Universe:
{Cameron smiles} Yeah, apparently, they were talking about how mix tapes were “pussy gold” and he said he should make you one for when you’re sleeping. I’m thinkin’ he didn’t think that one through at the time he said it.
The Cosmos:
{Summer laughs} Probably not. And he’d be mortified.
The Universe:
{Cameron smiles more broadly} He didn’t even realize it when he told *me* about it.
The Universe:
{Cameron looks at her} And I managed to keep a straight face so he still doesn’t realize it. He’ll get mental ninja’d by it.
The Cosmos:
{Summer shakes her head} Hell.. he must have been very relaxed. Unless I mention it.. you know when he gives me the tape. “Tryin’ to get some, baby?”
The Universe:
{Cameron laughs} You should totally do that.
The Cosmos:
{Summer laughs} All right.
The Universe:
{Cameron looks back at the band} So… I kinda got Hayden in more trouble yesterday.
The Cosmos:
{Summer arches her brow, as she looks over at him} What did you do Cam?
The Universe:
{Cameron smiles} Well.. apparently, she’s a feminist and doesn’t like it when raging misogynists tell her to stay in the kitchen.
The Universe:
{Cameron looks at her, smiles} Oh.. and Jenna heard me bitchin’ about how Hayden needed to make me a sandwich.
The Cosmos:
{Summer laughs} She’s not a feminist.. she just doesn’t like being told what to do.. she thinks the feminism makes that okay.
The Cosmos:
{Summer laughs} *She’s* the feminist.
The Universe:
{Cameron smiles again, nods} Well.. she I got to hear about how it pisses her off when “anything with a penis” tells her what to do but she’s so *not* a feminist. {laughs} Jenna told her she had to go make me a sandwich.
The Cosmos:
{Summer laughs} Oh that’s great.
The Universe:
{Cameron cracks up because he had *no* idea Jenna was a feminist}
The Universe:
{Cameron, while laughing} And I said that shit in front of her.
The Cosmos:
{Summer smiles} Jenna’s brand of fair.
The Universe:
{Cameron smiles at Summer} Yeah, well.. pissing off Hayden with that misogynist shit is the most fun I’ve had in *ages*.
The Universe:
{Cameron laughs} She gets *so* worked up over it.
The Cosmos:
{Summer smiles} She really does.. but she’s also worked in construction all her life. And she’s *very* used to it and usually handles it very well.
The Universe:
{Cameron nods} And when I started fuckin’ with her, I was just giving her shit *because* it was construction related, yanno? But she got so pissed about it that it just kind of escalated and we were at each other’s throats all day.
The Cosmos:
{Summer smiles} So you had fun with her then? Was she having fun too?
The Universe:
{Cameron laughs} Not until we went and spied on Seth and Bree in the throne room. Up until then she didn’t even wanna look at me.
The Universe:
{Cameron looks at her, smiles} I’m pretty sure she wanted to punch me in the face just as bad as I wanted to punch *her* in the face.
The Cosmos:
{Summer nods} Let me explain something to you about Hayden. If she’s still fighting with you she’s having fun. It’s when she stops acknowledging you all together that you have to worry.
The Universe:
{Cameron smiles} Yeah, well, I don’t think I have to worry. Because now we’re at a place where we pretty much just wanna get naked and wrestle.
The Cosmos:
{Summer laughs} Oh my god.. you fought yourselves into fucking.
The Universe:
{Cameron smiles, shakes his head} Not yet. That’s kinda why I was looking for you.
The Cosmos:
{Summer smiles} You want permission?
The Universe:
{Cameron looks at Summer, smiles} Hey, mom? Can I go bang the brakes off the little sort of feminist bitch next door?
The Universe:
{Cameron laughs} Or.. can I go bang the feminism out of her, even.
The Cosmos:
{Summer laughs} Have at her.. Babe. But before you do {gets a stern look on her face} Do we need to have *the* talk?
The Universe:
{Cameron smiles} Why? *She’ll* probably give it to me.
The Cosmos:
{Summer smiles} Yes.. go have fun. As long as her vampire.. agrees.
The Universe:
{Cameron laughs} Oh, wait.. that wouldn’t be “the Talk”. That would be “the Bitching”. {smiles, nods} All right. Cool, thanks. {looks back at the band}
The Cosmos:
{Summer smiles} And you can be out past curfew tonight.
The Universe:
{Cameron looks at her, smiles} What *is* curfew, anyway?
The Cosmos:
{Summer laughs} There isn’t one. I’ll summon you if I need you.
The Universe:
{Cameron nods} All right. Cool. {smiles} I’ll see you later then.
The Cosmos:
{Summer smiles} Yes you will.
The Universe:
{Cameron smiles again, gets up and heads out of the room to find Hayden}
