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.

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}

If You’re Somewhere Out There Passed Out on the Floor

The Universe:
{Alexei walks back to his seat. sits down, whispers to Mia} Aiden, Samuel and Roland.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Alexei, arches a brow, whispers} Aiden and Samuel I can see, but *Ro*?
The Cosmos:
{Mia blinks, whispers} Ro…Seriously?
The Universe:
{Alexei nods, whispers} Gabriel is going back over his bank records. The collections are vastly different. Aiden and Samuel have primarily hand guns. Roland, however, has a slightly more vast array including but not limited to Katanas.
The Universe:
{Alexei whispers} Aiden and Samuel also do not have silencers or padded cases for their weapons.

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:
{Van walks over to Kendra, sits next to her, looks at her}
The Universe:
{Van, quietly} Tell me what I did and how to fix it.
The Cosmos:

{Bree looks over and smiles at Loch}
The Universe:
{Ethan stops abruptly at the end, smiles at Loch} Hi.
The Universe:
{Loch smiles the most fake smile of all time at Ethan} *Hi*. {walks over to Bree, places a hand on the back of her neck and kisses her, looks at Ethan} My girlfriend is not available to help you start your one night stand binge.
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.

Stay With Me Tonight

The Universe:
{Morose laughs, snuggles the puppy, smiles down at it} Don’t worry. She’ll be back. If not for you, then when she realizes she summoned Shay who’s going to follow her to wherever she goes. {starts feeding the puppy} And if not for *that* then when she realizes she gave *me* a puppy to feed and that there are women *everywhere* who’ll get all weak in the knees over us.
The Universe:
{Christopher laughs} Oh, that’s perfect. {grins} Mix tapes have nothing on puppies.
The Universe:
{Morose nods} Yeah. She just made it even *easier* for me to get laid.

I am Torn to Do What I Have to

The Universe:
{meanwhile in Genja’s room}
The Universe:
{Genja reaches over and places a hand on Eden’s knee as he pushes himself into a sitting position}
The Cosmos:
{Eden startles and scrambles to her feet, quietly} I’m sorry sir…
The Universe:
{Genja looks over at her} Why are you sorry?
The Cosmos:
{Eden looks at him} For falling asleep in your bed and intruding on your privacy at all.
The Universe:
{Genja shakes his head} It’s fine. I don’t mind it, really.
The Universe:
{Genja looks at her} But since you’ve brought it up.. what’s wrong?
The Cosmos:
{Eden shakes her head} Nothing.. I just wanted to get to talk to you before.. my.. watchdog.
The Universe:
{Genja smiles} Watchdog? I assume you mean Ava. What is she going to tell me that you felt you should explain first?
The Cosmos:
{Eden looks over at him} That I was flirting with the guys in the band.. specifically Loch and Ethan.
The Universe:
{Genja looks at her} To what end?
The Cosmos:
{Eden shook her head} No end. It was just… we were playing together and everyone said that the song Ethan and I were singing we couldn’t ever sing again because there was no way people wouldn’t believe we weren’t fucking if we did. {softly} Ethan and Loch both know that I belong to you and they won’t do anything because of that. I mean they won’t even be alone with me. and neither will Mia for that matter so apparently it goes through everyone. Oh and Van and Roland went off on Saige at breakfast.

Breathe Life Into My Deepest Hopes

The Universe:
{Tristan walks into the suite where Brennan is sitting on the couch, watching TV while he waits for Peyton to wake up, looks over, smiles} She didn’t eat you after fucking you?
The Universe:
{Tristan smiles, shakes his head} Don’t be an ass. We were training. {walks over and sits down next to him, looks at the TV as he grabs a chip out of the bag on the couch} What are we watching?
The Universe:
{Brennan hands Tristan the remote} Fuck if I know.
The Universe:
{Tristan takes the remote and flips through the channels} I half expected you to be watching cartoons. Don’t ask me why, because I don’t know.
The Cosmos:
{Peyton walks out of her bedroom, walks over to the windows stands in front of them and stretches} Morning boys.
The Universe:
{the boys look at Peyton, Brennan smiles} Hey.

You’re Always Crazy Like That

The Universe:
{Ethan smiles, watches her go, shakes his head, looks at the others} So how’d breakfast end?
The Universe:
{Aiden shakes his head as he rolls} Don’t know. We didn’t stick around til it ended.
The Cosmos:
{Ava watches Eden go arches her brow} It probably ended quietly.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Ava, smiles} She’s good, isn’t she?
The Universe:
{Ethan shrugs} With the violin, I mean.
The Universe:
{Tristan nods} She really is. Loch kind of surprises me with the way he is toward her, though. Like he’s *not* actually trying to fuck her.
The Universe:
{David shakes his head} Just because he’s a whore, doesn’t mean he’s fuckin’ *everyone*.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods to David, looks at Tristan} Whatever else you can say about Loch, you can’t say he’s stupid.
The Cosmos:
{Ava nods to Ethan, softly} She *is* good. {looks at Tristan, quietly} She’s really trying to behave.
The Universe:
{Tristan shakes his head} That’s not what I meant. *Obviously* he’s not stupid. But so far, he’s treated *most* of the women he’s talked to like he was trying to fuck them. {looks at Ava, smiles} From where I’m standing, she looks like she’s pulling it off.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} She is.
The Cosmos:
{Ava nods and smiles} Genja will be pleased.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks back at Ava} So, at the risk of totally *not* saying this the way I mean it… is it like.. your job to watch her or something?
The Cosmos:
{Ava shrugs} It’s my job to make sure she doesn’t embarrass the king and to teach her by example how to…handle certain situations.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} Okay, so.. what’s considered… I don’t know.. proper behavior for her? I mean, like… could she hang out in a guys room… {sighs} That sounded way better in my head.
The Cosmos:
{Ava looks at Ethan, smiles} She probably shouldn’t without permission from Genja. In fact she probably shouldn’t be alone with any guy until she’s finished her…training.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} Right. I figured as much, wait, what training?
The Universe:
{Tristan whispers to Saige} Wow. Ethan actually managed to ask what Ava was supposed to be doing without using the word “babysitter”.
The Cosmos:
{Ava shakes her head} You’ll have to ask him that, Ethan. It’s between her and him. I’m just there to more or less be a role model and guide her.
The Cosmos:
{Saige whispers back to Tristan} Seriously. I was thinking the same thing.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} In other words, not my business. Got it. And totally *not* asking the king.
The Universe:
{Tristan smiles, whispers} I’m pretty sure even *I* couldn’t have asked without calling her a babysitter.
The Universe:
{Ethan frowns} You know I was just asking about the room thing because of that whole conversation she and Loch just had about it, right? Not because I want to lure her off to mine or anything.
The Cosmos:
{Ava smiles} I didn’t mean it that way. it’s just {looks around} not something to talk about in…large groups.
The Cosmos:
{Ava nods} I know Ethan.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} Cool. But..yanno, if it’s not something to talk about in a group, we probably shouldn’t talk about it at all, so.. we’ll go with that.
The Cosmos:
{Ava nods and sighs} And now I’m the killjoy. {shakes her head}
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Ava} No. I just really *don’t* think I want to know what kind of training can’t be talked about in mixed company. Involving the king and..{laughs} well, *anyone*, really.
The Cosmos:
{Ava looks around the room} Right. Okay. Still…
