Run Away Before I Know

 
The Universe:
{meanwhile, Ethan stops walking and round on Loch} Really? *Really*? You tell the *King* we’re talking about.. *that*?
The Universe:
{Loch smirks, doesn’t even slow his step as he heads for the music room} And what were *you* gonna tell him, Ethan, that *didn’t* start with “uh.. well, I want on your woman but it’s bad idea so friend zoning myself was my grand plan”? {shakes his head} You’re friendzoned now, mother fucker. Now let’s go find her and try and let her know what we just told the king.
The Universe:
{Tristan looks at Ethan} You were totally going to say something about how you told her she was like a sister to you for all very right reasons but *not* reasons you want the king to know.
The Universe:
{Akhiro smiles at Ethan} Today, you’ve been your own worst enemy damn near every step of the way.
The Cosmos:
{Izzy smiles} Only where that’s concerned.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Izzy, smiles} It’s just one of those days were *almost* everything that can go wrong, has.
The Cosmos:
{Izzy nods} I’ve had days like that.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} I don’t *usually*, but fuck, when it rains.
The Cosmos:
{Saige smiles} Tomorrow it has to be better.

If I Seem to Be Confused, I Didn’t Mean to Be With You

The Universe:
{meanwhile, Ethan walks down the hall with Izzy just before all this, to Izzy} I care about Eden a lot, but.. we’re just friends and friends is all we’re ever going to be.
The Cosmos:
{Izzy looks over at Ethan} Because she’s the king’s?
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at her} Well, yeah. {rolls his eyes} *And* because someone mentioned that I’m just.. six years older than her which doesn’t mean much ten years from now, but when you consider she graduated high school last year… it’s makes things kinda.. weird.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at her} But yeah.. my primary concern is keeping our faces attached.

{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}

So Take Your Medicine

The Cosmos:
{Nay laughs} Babe.. it’s not all it’s cracked up to be.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks over at Van and closes the laptop}
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} Nothing usually is, but it was probably a hell of a lot less boring than some night courses at the community college.

The Universe:
{Ethan cracks up}
The Cosmos:
{Bree looks up at Loch} I didn’t mean it like that.. just that music draws the girls in.
The Universe:
{Loch eyes Ethan a second longer, looks at Bree} Not lately. Well, it hasn’t been real good for it so far tonight, anyway.
The Universe:
{Ethan smiles at Bree} And by that, he means it didn’t draw *you* in earlier.
The Universe:
{Loch looks at Ethan} I was talkin’ about when the only people that dropped by were Chloe, Summer, Kendra, Van and Akhiro.

The Cosmos:
{Aubrey looks at Seth} Yeah I can find it, {shrugs} I’m not *that* drunk. {Aubrey smiles at Ethan} Hey Ethan. {looks at Loch} Heather summoned Bree to take David back to the apartment, get him showered and put him to bed.

{Loch nods} Thanks, babe. I’ll text her and let her know where I went.

{Aubrey nods} Cool. He was making noises about her joining him.

The Cosmos:
{Bonnie tosses the book at him} You forgot this.

{Sebastian grabs the book, looks at the cover} I guess I got distracted. {walks into the room, leaving the door open and sets the book on the coffee table} It happens.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie steps up and leans on the door frame, crossing her arms over her chest, shakes her head, dryly} Yes.. by your cock.

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}
