Title: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 24, 2017, 12:53:14 PM
The tiny seaside town of Beaumont, North Carolina, is teeming with paranormal activity. There's the generational curse that turns boys into monsters and slowly eats their sanity; the college girls that grow fish tails when they touch water, and then wake up the next day with psychic powers; the dedicated and deadly werewolf hunters; and the very well-hidden witch coven responsible for it all.

Who exactly are these witches? What would it take to get them to reverse their spells? No one knows for sure, but in the meantime, the mermaids need to keep the werewolves clothed and sane, and the werewolves need to keep the mermaids dry. And both need to make sure that the humans don't find out.

~~~

So, yeah, I decided to combine the really old werewolf RP I made and the mermaids RP. So. Here we go.
 
I don't really feel like explaining all of the world building just yet - whether that's my inherent laziness or part of the mystery of the roleplay, you decide - so just trust me. I'll let y'all know when it's time to unleash some major stuff.

I'm planning on having some witch and hunter characters scattered throughout the story, but no one but me and the player will know who they are. In the meantime, let me say this one thing: all the werewolves are boys, all the witches are girls, but the mermaids and werewolf hunters can be either gender. No exceptions. I'm very picky about this kind of stuff. And if you want a regular human, that's cool too.

I'll post a card once this gets some interest.

Yayyy i don't like having my characters be younger than me lmao
I'm so hyped im gonna start PLANNING
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on July 25, 2017, 05:05:41 AM
^^ thisll be my first rp that my characters are the same ages as moi 😭😭
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 25, 2017, 06:28:26 AM
I don't typically like playing characters younger than me, either. Which is why I like all of these college-aged RPs :)

So, here are my cards!

Name: Sunny Sim
Age: 19
Species: Mermaid (I couldn't resist, lol)
Power (if mermaid): Premonitions of the future
Appearance: Sunny has glossy black hair currently cut in a short, choppy bob. Her eyes are dark brown, and she has olive toned, tan skin. At 5'2", she's pretty short, and has a petite body type. She likes to dress very practically - her typical everyday outfit is jeans and a t-shirt. As a mermaid, her tail is bright yellow, and her fins slowly turn to a light blue.
History: Sunny grew up in North Carolina, but far more inland. She was born in South Korea and was adopted by an American couple as a baby, and so she only knows the US as her home. Her family is lower middle class, and so Sunny took every scholarship and grant she could get her hands on.
Anything else? : She is a nursing major.

(Edit: Made my werewolf charrie.)

Name: Cole Cremley
Age: 21
Species: Werewolf
Power (if mermaid): N/A
Appearance: Cole has wavy blond hair and brown eyes. He's not quite six feet tall, standing at 5'11", and has a medium build. He exercises, but is not bulky or really toned. Cole likes to wear muted colors - mustard yellow is his favorite, although he doesn't realize it - and sneakers. Because life is short, and he doesn't feel like putting a lot of effort into his clothes.
History: Cole grew up in Beaumont, and first turned into a werewolf at nineteen, when the curse took effect. Despite his struggle with it, he's managed to stay relatively calm, and so far, no one has discovered his secret. He didn't trust himself to go to college, so he went to trade school instead and now works as a mechanic.
Anything else? : Around the full moon, Cole becomes almost violently angry and short-tempered (as all werewolves do).

So, if you want a witch or Hunter, mark them down on their card as a human (for mystery and stuff) and then send me a PM and we can work it out :)

(New edit: added Andrew.)

Name: Andrew Shaw
Age: 20
Species: Human
Power (if mermaid): N/A
Appearance: Andrew has very deep, rich skin the color of soil, and dark hair and eyes to match. He keeps his hair cropped short to his head. Andrew usually likes to wear earth tones - browns, greens, even deep reds - with the occasional gray or blue item.
History: He was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, and came to Beaumont to go to college on a scholarship. His parents don't necessarily approve of his path, and though it's hard for him to go on without their support, he's doing the best he can.
Anything else? : He wants to study art therapy, but since Seaside University doesn't offer that specific program, he's double majoring in psychology and art.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on July 25, 2017, 09:22:39 AM
Name: Rachel Shoemaker
Age:18
Species: Human
Appearance: purple blue mermaid dyed hair. She's of Half white half Hindu decent and has dark tan skin. She has her dad's electric blue eyes and has a large birthmark on the right shoulder that she swears up and down that it looks like a paw print (which it very vaguely does)
History: Ever since she was little she had looooved monster movies and fairytales! She grew up watching shows like supernatural and H2O and had always been convinced that they were real. Her dad fully supported her, and though there were times when he would wish she would just come back to plain old reality, he could never bring himself to crish her dreams. She graduated at the age of 17 and is now studying Mythology and lore in college.
Anything else? :Her head can frequently be found up in the clouds and despite her vast "knowledge" about werewolves, vampires, mermaids and the like, she fails to notice that her best friend is actually a werewolf.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on July 26, 2017, 02:40:27 PM
Name: Ferris O'Lear
Age: 21
Species: Merfolk
Power: Attraction; he can sort of draw people to himself and gain their favor.
Appearance: Ferris is basically a freckled pole with a mop of curly hair. He's quite tall and has an average build, and his face is remarkably freckly; as are his neck, shoulders, and arms. He has large green eyes but they're usually hidden because his curls tend to be pushed into his face by the hat he is almost always wearing. As a mer, his tail is forest green and rather plain aside from the dark - nearly black - dorsal stripe like marking.
History: Both his parents were archaeologists/treasure hunters, but now he lives with his uncle after they went missing on an excavation in South America.
Anything else?: Ferris is extremely friendly and he loves to meet new people, especially if that means learning new things from them. He is always looking to gain some knowledge, and his biggest dream is to travel all over. Junior majoring in archaeology (I swear that's not because I too was majoring in that lmao)


Name: Clemence Bourdieu
Age: 20
Species: Human
Power (if mermaid): N/A
Appearance: Thick, wavy hair that she's bleached blonde. Her skin tone is deep, but she has freckles across her nose and a beauty mark above her lip on the right side. She has a fuller figure, and wears very trendy and urban clothes while still staying comfortable. She's about 5'4".
History: She actually grew up in Louisiana, but came to North Carolina for school and is studying graphic design. Her parents are Haitian immigrants.
Anything else? : She's relatively quiet and keeps to herself for the most part. She used to be a dancer, and still sometimes does it to relieve stress or just for fun.

ok last one for now lmao

Name: Chris Jason
Age: 20
Species: Werewolf
Power (if mermaid): N/A
Appearance: He has short brown hair and dark brown eyes. His skin is fair and his cheeks have a permanent, boyish ruddiness too them that's only influenced by the infrequent freckles that would be better classified as beauty marks over his face and body. He's pretty toned, mostly due to his species. He likes to dress like he came straight out of a tumblr photo, and honestly looks as though he should be in California rather than North Carolina.
History: He grew up in South Carolina on a healthy childhood of boiled peanuts and frequent visits to Myrtle Beach. He decided to go to college here because New England seemed too daunting, but he wanted to not be in the same state as his parents anymore. He's happy now that he stayed close.
Anything else? : He's studying engineering and wants to someday go to space.

Post by: EloiseNagel on July 27, 2017, 12:07:07 PM
Name: Xaviar Evans
Age: 19
Species: Werewolf
Appearance: he has warm Hazel eyes and sunkissed skin. Wears glasses but once he turned wolf he traded the glass to normal glass instead of prescription lenses as to not raise awareness from his non-werewolf friends. He has thick black Italian hair that he wears in a loose ponytail and rocks a killer goatee. He has very defined cheekbones and has the build of a professional swimmer. Likes to wear flannels and work jeans. He also always rocks his
History: parents are of Italian descent but moved to America for a better life . Father fell under the werewolf curse and soon after met Xaviar's mom. His mother is human but very loving and supportive of him and his father. His father was devastated to learn that the werewolf curse also fell upon his son but was there to guide him every step of the way.
Anything else?: Is best friends with Rachel and is her secret "watch dog" whenever he wolfs up. Has convinced her that guys have "man periods" which is why he gets super irritated and sensitive once a month. But really it's just a coverup for when the full moon comes  around. Is on a swim team scholarship and is studying psychology in college. Is a huge teddy bear and super family oriented, but now that he is living on his own his friends are his pack.

Let's start the morning after a full moon. It's the beginning of the fall semester.

Cole squinted against the bright morning sun, and groaned as he shifted his weight. His body was sore all over, as usual, and he had no doubt he was probably covered in dirt and blood. But he wasn't ready to look down at himself to check the damage yet.

Sunny dialed one of the wolves' numbers - who exactly it was, she didn't know; someone had changed all the werewolf contacts in her phone to "Wolf Boy" - and held it up to her ear, praying someone would answer. It would be hard to find them otherwise.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on July 31, 2017, 11:22:14 AM
(Taking this lmao)

Chris heard his phone and groaned, the sound shrill to his sensitive ears. He reached to grab it, his body aching. "Hullo?" He said into the receiver, his voice gravelly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 11:31:11 AM
"Hey. Where are you?" Sunny asked, and crossed her arms anxiously.

(Let's assume the werewolves stuck together.)

Cole groaned when the phone rang, and rolled over to cover his ears.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on July 31, 2017, 11:33:12 AM
"Yeah, uh, good question, good question," Chris mumbled as he slowly sat up and looked around, trying to decipher where they were. "Hey man, do you have any clue where we're at?" He said to Cole, who was the only other one that'd given an indication he was semi-functioning.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 11:42:34 AM
Cole rubbed his eyes and sat up to look around. "Uh...Kroger? I think that's the Kroger," he said. Chris seemed to be doing somewhat okay, which was good, but he wasn't sure about anyone else.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on July 31, 2017, 11:44:14 AM
"The Kroger, so sayeth Cole," Chris laid back and closed his eyes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 12:00:32 PM
Sunny nodded to herself, thinking. "Okay. Hang tight, we'll be there soon," she said. As soon as she hung up with Chris, she immediately dialed Mary's number.

"Who was that?" Cole asked. He decided that sitting up with his aching head was too much work, so he gently lowered himself back down. And yes, he did have some blood smears on him, but he tried not to worry; it was more than likely an animal's.

(I don't want to go too far without Eloise and Kieya. Also I want to bring Andrew back at some point in this story.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on July 31, 2017, 12:02:57 PM
(ANDREW. MY DARLINGS ALMOST BF)

"Um," Chris hadn't checked the caller ID. "Oh, Sunny," he told him after he'd checked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 12:06:26 PM
(I love Andrew so much.)

"Sunny. That name is obnoxious," Cole grumbled, closing his eyes again.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on July 31, 2017, 12:08:13 PM
(Me too)

"The sun is obnoxious," Chris said and slowly sat back up.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on July 31, 2017, 12:32:37 PM
"It sucks," Cole agreed. He squeezed his eyes tighter shut, hoping to block out the light.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on July 31, 2017, 01:23:25 PM
(Wash! I'm so behind!)
Xaiviar opened his eyes to only darkness "whaaa???" He felt around only to feel cold metal on all sides. His post-wolf state he could only come to one conclusion "Oh God! I've been buried alive!!! Heeeeellllp!" His screams echoed out of a garbage bin near Cole and Chris.

Rachel sat up from her computer desk and looked at the clock. "Crap, looks like I'm gonna be late... again... oh well." She shrugged as she let out a long yawn.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 01, 2017, 10:45:31 AM
Cole managed to prop himself up again and squinted against the sun. "Do you hear that?" he asked Chris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 01, 2017, 11:13:05 AM
"Heeeelp! I can't die like this!" Xaiviar screamed not too manly like, voice cracking and all. He banged against the sides of his "coffin" hoping someone would hear.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 02, 2017, 03:16:59 AM
Somehow, Cole got himself into a standing position, though every muscle in his body screamed against the idea. He listened for a while longer, and then realized that Xaiviar was missing.
"Chris, do you remember when you last saw Xaiviar?" Cole frowned, trying to think, but the last thing he remembered was the pain that wracked his body as the full moon rose.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 02, 2017, 03:37:00 AM
"Who?" Chris mumbled, rubbing his head. He glanced up at Cole and then slowly stood as well. "Oh, um, I dunno. Wait, what's that noise?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 02, 2017, 05:08:35 AM
Xaviar paused for a bit and listened. Upon hearing voices his screaming intensifiesd. "Heeeelllioo? Help! I'm to young to die!"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 02, 2017, 05:19:50 AM
Cole hobbled over to the trash bin, praying that no one would see him - nudity was an embarrassing, yet inescapable part of being a werewolf - and opened the lid.
"The hell?" he said. "Are you trying to make my head explode?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 02, 2017, 05:28:47 AM
"What's going on?" Chris came up after Cole and frowned when he looked inside. "Oh, that's where you went."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 02, 2017, 06:06:46 AM
Tears welled up in his eyes. "I-I thought that I was buried alive man." Shielding his sensitive eyes from the harsh sunlight. As the wind picked up the stench of the garbage he was 'trapped ' in was made more obvious. "Oh gawd!" He covered his face. "Was I really just in a trash can this whole time!?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 02, 2017, 06:52:50 AM
"Yeah. Yeah, you were." Cole sighed. How did Xaiviar manage to get himself in these situations?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 02, 2017, 07:06:48 AM
Chris just raised his eyebrows. "Sunny's gonna bring us some clothes, right?" He was starting to kind of get used to it, but waking up amongst a bunch of naked guys was not as exciting as one might think.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 02, 2017, 07:18:57 AM
Xaviar winced as he sat up. "I hate un-wolfing" he muttered as he gingerly made his way out of the trash can.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 02, 2017, 12:07:25 PM
Cole nodded in response to Xaviar, then said, "I hope she is. They usually know to bring us clothes, right?"

Sunny gave up when Mary didn't answer, and dialed Ferris' number instead.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 02, 2017, 12:18:08 PM
"Ah, I think so. Otherwise they'll be in for a rude awakening," Chris shrugged.

Ferris picked up after a couple rings. "Yo," he said casually as he lounged back in his desk chair.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 02, 2017, 12:29:10 PM
Cole huffed. "No kidding."

"Hey. Do you have a car?" Sunny asked. "The wolves are out by Kroger, and I don't feel like walking all the way there."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 02, 2017, 12:45:51 PM
"And I hope to God it's nothing as bad as she brought last time... Rachel won't shut up about the pink sequined 'muscle shirt'" Xaviar added with quotation fingers.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 02, 2017, 12:49:02 PM
"I thought that suited you," Chris grinned.

"Oh, sure. I'll come pick you up," Ferris said, hopping out of his chair and grabbing his keys as he did.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 02, 2017, 12:51:34 PM
"Oh like the skort suited you?" Xaviar asked with a raised eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 02, 2017, 12:54:57 PM
"Better than the sundress she brought me," Cole muttered. Sunny may not be a dress person, but neither was he.

"Cool, thanks. Also, do you have any clothes they can borrow? They weren't too happy with my hand me downs last time," Sunny admitted with a sheepish smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 02, 2017, 01:01:38 PM
Xaviar held back a snort as his mind replayed that memory. "Well at least we're at a point where we're used to it, remember our first time wolfing out." He remembered with a grimace.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 02, 2017, 01:04:20 PM
"I can rock whatever they bring," Chris winked at the two of them, then went to go sit back down again.

"Oh, yeah," Ferris paused and grabbed as many pairs of basketball shorts as he could find and the same amount of tshirts.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 02, 2017, 01:26:23 PM
Cole grimaced at that first memory. "I don't want to think about it."

"Thanks, dude. You're the best." Sunny smiled and walked outside her dorm building so she was easy to see.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 02, 2017, 01:32:15 PM
"How much longer will it be?" Chris grumbled, looking around.

Ferris chucked the stuff into his car, then drove off from his apartment to Sunny's dorm. "Get in, loser, we're going shopping," he said out the window as he pulled up.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 03, 2017, 03:25:11 AM
(Eloise, Ferris is picking up Sunny at her dorm. They're not to the Kroger yet.)

"Probably forever, knowing how girls work," Cole muttered.

"But I can't sit with you today," Sunny said as she climbed in the car. "I'm wearing sweatpants."

(Also let's just say today is Saturday for convenience's sake.)

"Heeeey baby, it's Mary. Sorry I didn't pick up before, I was well.. " She looked down at her phone and then smacked her lips. "Whose this please?" She asked in a happy demeanour.

Adeline had always loved living by the sea, and although her house was sound asleep she was on her balcony trying to make herself tired but to no avail.

Xaviar sat crisscrossed on the ground while he waited.

Rachel at this point was out of the shower and out the door, pop tart in hand.

"It's Sunny," she said into the phone. "The boys are back to normal, and Ferris and I are bringing them clothes. I tried calling you first, but you didn't pick up."

"Sunny!" Mary stood up immediately keeping her expression, "awesome where am I to meet you lovelies? I'm already dressed you see..."

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 05, 2017, 05:35:31 AM
"Kroger. And it's probably good for you to meet us there, because I don't know if Ferris' car is big enough to hold everyone," Sunny said. Not without breaking the law, at least - but a car full of werewolves without seatbelts just didn't seem like a good idea.

(Next time I use a computer, I'll add Andrew's card to my original card post.)

"We can stuff people in the back," Ferris said as he drove off toward the Kroger.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 05, 2017, 05:42:11 AM
"Oh come on I always get left out! Listen to Ferris, I can sit on someone's knee." Mary continued a smile growing on her face. "How about it then?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 05, 2017, 06:03:19 AM
A soft smile tugged at the corners of her lips. "Okay. Where do you live, again?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 05, 2017, 06:16:15 AM
"I'm along the coast, obviously. Like the opposite of Kroeger." Marry continued as she threw on a cardigan and messily placed her hair into a bun.

"An address would be beneficial," Ferris raised an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 05, 2017, 06:33:25 AM
"This a small town, Ferris Beaumont Drive, the biggest house. I'll be waiting outside for you." Mary chuckled softly as she smacked her lips.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 05, 2017, 10:15:09 AM
Sunny furrowed her brows. "Is it the one with all the pillars out front?"

Cole sighed and sat down on the ground. They were taking forever to get there.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 05, 2017, 10:18:35 AM
"You can't miss it honey, sorry Sunny." Mary slowly closed the door behind her, "I'll be waiting anxiously."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 05, 2017, 11:34:19 AM
"Yeah, yeah, yeah, big house," Ferris muttered and drove down toward her house.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 06, 2017, 01:08:11 PM
"We'll be there soon," Sunny assured her, and then hung up. She wasn't really sure what to make of Mary. It was difficult for Sunny to tell what kind of person the other mer was.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 06, 2017, 09:43:12 PM
Mary waited outside patiently, her foot leaned onto one of the pillars, and hands in her pockets. She hummed softly of a song that was stuck in her head as she bopped her head, a flicker of a smile appeared new adventures awaits for them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 07, 2017, 09:26:59 AM
Ferris pulled up in front a few minutes later and honked his horn a couple times.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 07, 2017, 09:36:57 AM
Mary walked over to Ferris' window and with her finger she lightly tapped onto it leaning towards him. '
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 07, 2017, 10:05:49 AM
"Get in the car, Mary!" Sunny hollered from the passenger seat.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 07, 2017, 10:09:24 AM
"Whose lap should I sit on?" Mary asked opening the car door, she continued to smirk at the others at the back.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 07, 2017, 10:13:20 AM
"Well, for now, the seats," Ferris rolled his eyes and headed to the Kroger.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 07, 2017, 10:15:36 AM
Mary climbed aboard and shut the door behind her. "Who else we picking up lovely?" She rolled down her window fully  so she could leaned her arm against it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 07, 2017, 11:39:08 AM
"Cole, Chris, and Xaviar. The werewolves," Sunny reminded her.

(And I'm just gonna skip a bit because this has gone on long enough, lol.)

When Cole finally saw Ferris' car pull into the Kroger parking lot, he was relieved - but also annoyed. He didn't want to have to walk naked all the way to the lot.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 07, 2017, 11:42:23 AM
Ferris stopped and went around to the back, opening the trunk to grab the pile of clothes.

Chris came over when he heard the car, and let out a whoop when he saw the clothes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 07, 2017, 04:00:58 PM
"It's about time! I thought I was gonna get a chance to even put the farmers tan hahaha" Xaviar hopped up and made his way over to the car, respectively covering his junk in the presence of ladies.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 07, 2017, 07:15:07 PM
Mary leaned towards Sunny and looked at the boys through the rear view mirror. "Certainly different boys, from where I'm from."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 08, 2017, 03:34:52 AM
Cole noticed Mary staring, and his cheeks flushed with embarrassment. He was covering himself the best he could, but it never felt like enough. Being exposed like this really sucked.

"Where are you from, again?" Sunny asked her. For some reason, she had trouble remembering that.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 08, 2017, 03:49:34 AM
"Here," Ferris handed them all some clothes and Chris took them, quickly dressing himself.
"Hey man, thanks," he said, clapping Ferris on the shoulder.
"Uh, yeah, you guys can just keep the clothes, I don't need them," he said, looking at the werewolves before he went to get back in his car. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. Three attractive, naked guys were not good for his heart.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 08, 2017, 08:28:03 AM
Xaviar got dressed as well and made his way to the car. "Hey does anybody know what time it is?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 08, 2017, 08:59:50 AM
"Spain, well I hang around the Hamptons because well fireworks and parties. You're from around here right?" Mary asked her voice more suitable for a conversation, yet her mischievous were in her eyes as they flickered to each boy to then locked her eyes with Cole, which her eyes did not venture down.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 08, 2017, 09:56:58 AM
(Lololol poor Ferris.)

"It's nine thirty," Sunny said to Xaviar, and then she turned back to Mary. "I'm actually from Ohio."

Cole took a step backwards and quickly got dressed, hoping to avoid Mary's stare. He didn't like that look in her eyes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 08, 2017, 10:00:29 AM
(My child. I love him.)

"So, how's the car arrangement gonna work?" Chris asked as he opened the back door and poked his head inside. "'Cause I'm counting two unoccupied seats back here and three asses that need to be buckled in."

Ferris looked over the back of his chair and shrugged. "Mary said she'd lapstack. Or you guys can, I dunno. We're all in college, you can figure it out."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 08, 2017, 04:06:10 PM
"I can go in the trunk again as to avoid lapstacking." Xaviar suggested with an awkward hand raise.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 09, 2017, 06:03:57 AM
"Oh no, don't do that. It'll only give you a headache afterwards." Mary said with a wave of her hand. "Don't be coy about it, it's not exactly far is it?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 09, 2017, 07:28:09 AM
"I can lapstack. I don't care," Cole offered.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 09, 2017, 07:32:38 AM
"Shweet," Chris shot Cole a thumbs up and then slid into the car to sit in the middle seat. "Hey, you got an aux?" He asked Ferris.

"Dude, the drive back is like...two minutes," Ferris argued, but Cole insisted. Reluctantly, he passed back the chord and switched the radio setting.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 09, 2017, 07:34:00 AM
"Alrighty then." Mary said got out of the car to let the others in. "Cole right?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 09, 2017, 07:37:56 AM
He nodded. "Yeah, I'm Cole. You?"

Sunny rolled her eyes, smiling softly, and turned around to face Chris. "You really want music for a two minute drive?" she asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 09, 2017, 07:39:22 AM
Mary slid back into the car, making herself comfortable on his lap, she turned slightly to offer her hand, "Mary."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 09, 2017, 07:48:47 AM
"Um, duh," Chris gave Sunny a dumbfounded look as he plugged in his phone and turned on his spotify. Kendrick started blaring through the speakers and Ferris scrambled to turn it down a bit.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 09, 2017, 09:37:38 AM
Xaviar got in last, "Hey I live like 5min from school so when you guys drop me off I'm gonna run and get my books and such."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 09, 2017, 12:45:54 PM
"Going to the library?" Sunny asked Xaviar. She was pretty sure Seaside University didn't have classes on Saturdays.

Cole nodded once, awkwardly, and didn't shake her hand. "Nice to meet you."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 09, 2017, 02:35:46 PM
"Yeah... no I gotta get home to get my phone and then books for class.." Xaviar shook his head and blinked a couple times. "What day is it? I think I'm hungover a bit." He asked, resting his face in his hands.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 09, 2017, 02:50:24 PM
"Saturday, my dude," Chris had paused from his rendition of Humble to answer.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 10, 2017, 01:58:59 AM
"Oh no!" he groaned, "I was supposed the pick up Rachel to go to the movies this morning!"

Rachel waited patiently in front of her house, sending an eleventh text to Xaviar.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 10, 2017, 03:14:44 AM
Did you not know the moon was going to be full, dude? Cole thought, though he didn't say it out loud.

Sunny frowned. "Does Rachel know about you?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 10, 2017, 03:40:05 AM
Mary kept sitting up straight, to avoid more awkwardness between Cole and her. "I'm sorry for this inconvenience."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 10, 2017, 03:41:45 AM
"Yeah, and who is Rachel?" Chris asked, wiggling his eyebrows suggestively.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 10, 2017, 10:03:04 AM
"Nah man, it's not like that, she's just a friend.. and even though she is like super studying mythology and such, she's kinda clueless..." Xaviar chuckled. "It's actually kinda adorable how clueless she is."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 10, 2017, 12:20:49 PM
"You're fine," Cole said to Mary, and then to Xaviar: "Really? She doesn't even suspect anything?"

Sunny smiled to herself. Any time someone described another person as "adorable," it definitely meant something deeper was going on.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 10, 2017, 12:22:52 PM
Chris just rolled his eyes in response to Xavier. "Yeah, just friends, right." He scoffed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 10, 2017, 02:20:24 PM
Xaviar's face turned a light shade of red. "It's true just friends! And I'm serious! I somehow convinced her that men get 'man periods'. That's how I explain the whole getting aggressive during the full moon."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 11, 2017, 08:26:10 AM
"Aggressive huh." Mary winked towards Xavier and smiled sweetly. "I smell bull."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 11, 2017, 08:46:38 AM
"Okay, maybe I don't get aggressive but I know that that's how most guys get before wolfing up." Xaviar muttered under his breath, crossing his arms.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 11, 2017, 12:20:14 PM
Cole frowned. His temper was always really bad just before the full moon, and he knew he had some serious apologies to make.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 11, 2017, 12:24:17 PM
Chris thought about that as well. He might have definitely thrown some shit at a party his roommates had thrown, but hey. He could replace it, no problem. He just needed to remember to stay away from any red solo cups before the full moon.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 11, 2017, 01:56:37 PM
Xaviar looked up at the guys' reactions and hung his head. "Sorry if that was awkwardly truthful... but at least you guys actually act like I don't know, GUYS! I on the other hand have cravings for cheesy 90s chick flicks and burgers... it's not the coolest thing in the world." He could his face slowly turning red, this car ride was more awkward than he anticipated.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 12, 2017, 02:53:07 AM
Ferris glanced in the rearview and frowned, but didn't say anything. "So...you guys just want me to drop you off where exactly?" He asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 12, 2017, 03:57:58 AM
"You can drop me off at my place," Cole said. "It's not too far from here."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 12, 2017, 04:00:51 AM
"Cool, cool," Ferris nodded.

"Yeah, same. I'm right down Elm street," Chris said as he switched the song to play Ugly God.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 12, 2017, 04:01:40 AM
"I'm one street over from Elm." Xaivar said, looking out the window.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 12, 2017, 04:10:03 AM
"I'm over on Riverside," Cole said to Ferris. "Right on the intersection with Neely."

Andrew sat outside on the porch of the house he and his roommates shared. It was a beautiful day out today, and he decided he wanted to do something fun, before his studio projects got to be a handful. And luckily, there was another party happening on Neely later that night. But before that - who knew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 12, 2017, 04:14:21 AM
(YAYYYYYYYY)

"Sweet," Ferris flashed a quick smile to the back seat and he turned to take Cole back first.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 12, 2017, 04:16:18 AM
"Why we making so many stops?" Mary asked leaning forward towards Sunny's seat.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 12, 2017, 04:29:23 AM
Sunny raised an eyebrow. "Because they don't live together."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

"Ah, but what is our agenda tonight?" Mary asked her cheeks reddening.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 12, 2017, 05:26:39 AM
"Sleep," Chris said immediately, then hesitated. "Oh, wait, there's a party tonight..." he said, now torn.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 12, 2017, 05:29:33 AM
"Party! you can sleep after the party." Mary lit up as she nudged him, "and you can invite all of us." She muttered.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 12, 2017, 05:43:45 AM
Cole thought for a moment. "I'm going to shower, take a nap, and then go to the party," he decided.

"That sounds like fun." Sunny grinned and twirled a strand of her hair around her finger. She hadn't gotten dressed up in a long time.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 12, 2017, 06:19:29 AM
"Yeah, yeah, you can all come. It's on your street, Cole," Chris said, looking at the boy next to him.

"Is your terrible music going to be playing?" Ferris asked, and Chris scoffed in offense.
"If by that you mean amazing, then yes, it will be!" He exclaimed as Ferris turned onto Cole's street.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 12, 2017, 06:42:19 AM
"Is there a chance I could invite Rachel to come?" He glanced at Mary, "n-not that I want her to come is just that I'd be a sucky friend for going to an awesome party without her."

Rachel continued to wait, running her fingers nervously through her blue and purple hair. She had called Xaviar a few times but he hadn't answered.She looked at her fingers, now tinted with the hues from her hair. Should've gotten stronger dye, she noted.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 12, 2017, 06:48:46 AM
Mary's brows lifted and smirked. "Friend. Of course she can Xavier, maybe then you can be more than friends."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 12, 2017, 06:50:51 AM
Cole shrugged. "I'm not in charge, but I think it's open door."

"Awesome," Sunny said with a grin.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 12, 2017, 07:26:00 AM
Xaviar covered his face as it slowly reddened. "Mary! Stahp! She's just a friend and I don't see her as any more than that."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 12, 2017, 07:46:05 AM
"Yeah, the more the merrier, you know?" Chris grinned.

Ferris pulled up to the curb and parked, then turned to look in the back seat. "Okay Mary, you can release Cole from his ass trap."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 12, 2017, 07:48:30 AM
"Hey! It wasn't that bad!" Mary lightly slapped his arm before she opened the door for them both. "Whatever, have a nice nap, though! I'll be waiting for you to come."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 12, 2017, 08:15:10 AM
"Bye Mary." Xaviar mumbled, one hand covering his face and the other waving bye.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 12, 2017, 08:58:20 AM
Cole nodded once at Mary, and then said, "It's been real, y'all." Once Mary was back in the car, he closed the door behind her and went into his apartment.

"Who's next?" Sunny called to the backseat.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 12, 2017, 09:34:21 AM
"Ah, the Elm Street boys. Guess whichever one we hit first," Ferris shrugged and watched to make sure Cole made it in alright before he drove off.

"I'm just on the corner," Chris told him, leaning forward a bit.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 13, 2017, 08:08:52 AM
Sunny nodded to herself and peeked into the backseat through the rearview mirror. "Does anyone know what time the party starts?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 13, 2017, 11:38:02 AM
Xaviar threw his arms into a shrug. "I'm guessing at night."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 13, 2017, 02:13:03 PM
"Most people won't show up until after 9...I'd say aim for 10?" Chris suggested with a shrug.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 14, 2017, 04:13:16 AM
"What do you suggest we do before ten then?" Mary folded her arms on the back of the chair and purses her lips.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 14, 2017, 04:28:08 AM
"Well, my roommate and I are going to rearrange our room," Sunny said. "But what about lunch?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 14, 2017, 05:17:24 AM
"I'm down," Ferris said with a shrug. He pulled up in front of Chris's house, who opened the door to get out.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 14, 2017, 05:21:04 AM
"I love lunch, let's do that!" Mary chimed in, clapping her hands together.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 14, 2017, 08:35:48 AM
"All right, cool! How about sandwiches?" Sunny suggested. "There's a sub place not too far from here."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 14, 2017, 05:27:44 PM
"Well my street is coming up, so I'll be out of your hair shortly-" Xaviar was cut off as they turned on his street.

Rachel waited arms crossed in front of his house. She had gotten worried about Xaviar so she had ran 3 blocks from her house to his.... just to see him pull up with a bunch of girls.

I'm in so much trouble... Xaviar thought to himself.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 15, 2017, 07:04:34 AM
"Sandwiches sound good," Ferris said and looked out the window. "Oh, good luck, dude," he said to Xaviar.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 16, 2017, 05:27:44 AM
Sunny raised an eyebrow. "Well, she shouldn't mind, since you're just friends and all," she reminded him, and smiled so that Xaviar would know she was teasing.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 16, 2017, 10:53:57 AM
Sweat broke out on Xaviar's forehead. "Yeah... If I'm not at the party, you can just take a shot in my honor... cause I'm dead meat." As the car slowed down he got out.

Rachel looked him up and down, seeing if chewing him out was worth her time. Her glare softened as she noticed the group dropping him off. "Thanks for getting him home alive." She walked past Xaviar and offered her hand to the driver. "I'm Rachel, you can say Xaviar's my brother from another family. And who might you all be?" He better not be part of a gang or something stupid like that... she thought to herself.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 16, 2017, 03:55:15 PM
"Oh, uh, hey," Ferris shook her hand, though he looked uncertain. He quickly pulled his hand away and set it back on the wheel. "I'm Ferris."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 17, 2017, 01:56:21 AM
"Sooo.. how do you guys know each other?" Rachel asked, looking from Xaviar to Ferris to Mary.

Xaviar smiled, "well I'm sure that Mary would like to explain that." He said, his eyes pleading Mary for forgiveness.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 17, 2017, 09:35:20 AM
Sunny opened her mouth to introduce herself, but found that she was being talked over. Whatever. She was used to that.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 17, 2017, 10:17:27 AM
Xaviar looked over at Sunny, "aren't you gonna say hi to everyone?" He asked Rachel.

Rachel looked over at the others in the car and bit her bottom lip, "whoops! Sorry, I guess I was just jumping the gun a bit, what's everyone else's name?"Great! I guess Xaviar's pmsing was contagious.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 18, 2017, 12:46:46 AM
"Mary, it's nice to meet you Rachel." She smiled contagiously, slowly she held out her hand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 18, 2017, 01:35:56 AM
Rachel grabbed her hand, "Likewise." She replied, eyebrow raised. She seems awfully cheery, must be a morning person.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

"Nice to meet you Sunny." She said and shifted her gaze to Ferris. "Oh, that's cool! Well I'll have you know that Xaviar is in trouble for not introducing all of you guys earlier! So.." she looked Xaviar up and down again. "Did you guys have some sort of sleep over?"

Xaviar nodded. "Yeah just a game night with the bros."

"And Ferris picked Mary and I up to go get sandwiches," Sunny added without missing a beat. Lying was getting easier every day.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 21, 2017, 07:57:38 AM
"Because we love sandwiches." Mary exchanged glances with Sunny and Ferris and back to Rachel. "And getting some right now would be great."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 21, 2017, 08:29:02 AM
Ferris gave Mary a weird look, but then just rolled his eyes and looked at Rachel. "Yeah, but it's been real great meeting you. We should head out though before the lunch rush."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 21, 2017, 03:28:24 PM
Rachel shrugged, "All right, you guys seem legit, sorry for any accusing stares haha." She trailed off in an awkward laugh. "We'll see you guys around it was nice to meet you all."
"Yeah catch ya later guys!" Xaviar chimed in, breathing a sigh of relief. Once again saved by innocent trust! I hate doing that to her though... he thought as he stared after the crew's car.

Sunny waved goodbye, but waited to roll up her window until Ferris started the car.

"You're a star." Mary wrapped her arms around Ferris' neck and then strapped herself in.

"Alright mister!" Rachel growled whipping around to face Michael. Michele gulped, bracing for the onslaught of nagging. "You gotta bribg your phone next time you are gonna go some place! You scared me!" She nagged. She punched his arm hard, and him just dewolfing not to long ago, thus still being really sore, let out a wimpy, "owww!!"

Sunny smiled, and then furrowed her eyebrows, thinking of something. "Does anyone ever go to Cheba Hutt sober?" she asked Ferris.

(Okie!)

As Sunny was squeezing hand sanitizer on her hands, she took another peek at her reflection in the mirror. Her curls were holding up well. Her makeup hadn't budged. Everything was going well. Satisfied, she slipped her sanitizer back into her purse and went to go get another drink.

Cole was currently sitting on the back porch, beer in hand, watching the girl he'd been talking to saunter away. He liked the swing in her hips. He liked a lot about her, actually.

Andrew pretended to laugh at a corny joke one of his very drunk friends had told. Honestly, the other guy had been slurring so much that Andrew hadn't understood most of it, and that worried him. It was too early in the night for his friend to be that wasted.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 27, 2017, 01:18:55 AM
Chris was mingling with people all through the crowd, making his way to the kitchen to grab another beer. "Woah hey, Sunshine, what're you drinking?" He asked a bit loudly when he saw Sunny, so he was heard over the music.

Clemence had come to the party on a whim, her friend had asked her. She didn't really go out much, she had more important things to worry about. But here she was,.walking out to the porch with a beer in hand to get some fresh air. She hated crowds.

Ferris had been walking past when he heard the guy's slurred speech and saw how worried his friend was looking at him. And the friend was cute, so he decided he could be a nice guy. He'd had one hit and that was enough to muster up some courage. "Hey man, do you want some of my water?" He asked the extra drunk guy, holding up the cup ofwhat was definitely just water.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 27, 2017, 06:27:08 AM
Adeline also exited the house, with a drink in her hand. People had spilled beer and managed to pin her to the walls from all the drunkenness. She took a groaned as she tried to wring the smell of beer out of her shirt.

Mary had performed her little 'party trick' which consisted of the alcoholic drinks forming into water animals, with her ability she had awed the people that were there. She knew that they were too drunk to realise what she was doing so she left the room, the people still in a trance. She sat beside Cole and slurped on her drink, "don't worry I won't be sitting on your lap tonight."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 27, 2017, 07:20:53 AM
Xaviar sat on the couch sipping a beer while jamming to the music.
Rachel sat next to him at an awkward distance, left hand drumming her knees while the other typed away on her blog.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 27, 2017, 12:19:43 PM
"Root beer, but with booze," Sunny answered Chris as she took a bottle. "What about you?"

"It'd be awkward if you did," Cole said. The shower and nap had worked miracles in helping him feel better and recover from the change, but he had a nagging suspicion that it went deeper than just that.

Andrew's friend took the water, and Andrew made sure he went and sat down to drink it.
"Thanks, man," he said to the blond guy who'd given it. "He needed that."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 27, 2017, 04:29:13 PM
Xaviar noticed the sudden lack of pack in the crowd, so excusing himself to his otherwise absent blogger friend, went looking for the group, finally he made his way outside. "Rough night so far?" He asked Adeline, then noticing Cole he lifted a hand , "sup man?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 27, 2017, 06:22:53 PM
"Just plain ol' beer. I'm a simple man with simple needs," Chris said as he popped open the tab of a Coors Light. With anyone else he probably would've shotgunned it, but he felt like Sunny wouldn't be enthused by the antic. "So, are you having fun?" he asked her, taking a moment to scan around the room as he took a sip from the can.

"There's a bedroom upstairs if he needs a place to lay down, too," Ferris told Andrew. "I don't think anyone would mind, really. Oh, I'm Ferris by the way," he smiled a bit before turning his attention to the drunk guy drinking water.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 28, 2017, 05:30:24 AM
Sunny laughed and took a sip of her root beer. "I've tried beer. Not a fan," she said, and then answered, "Yeah, I'm having fun. You?"

"Not much; just drinking my life away." Cole high-fived Xaviar and took another sip of his beer.

"As long as no one's banging up there," he agreed. "I'm Andrew. Nice to meet you, Ferris."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 28, 2017, 05:34:09 AM
"Yeah some girl managed to spill a loada drinks on me while doing her party trick." Adeline looked up as she pursed her lips as he followed Xavier's eyes. "That's her there."

Mary slurped her pina colada and edged a little closer to Cole. "Why drink beer when it can bloat your stomach?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 28, 2017, 05:48:43 AM
"Beer grows on you, give it time. Maybe some day I'll take you to get a real draft, and you'll be converted," Chris grinned. "But yeah, I'm having fun. Hopefully the cops don't come."

"It's a bit early for that, but we can always check," Ferris shrugged. "Besides this, are you having a good time, Andrew?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 28, 2017, 05:51:14 AM
"Ooohhh..." Xaviar replied, sitting next to Adeline "Man, that sucks, but don't mind her, she's drunk."

Rachel finally looked up from her phone and was caught off guard by a couple making out, right where Xaviar was previously sitting. "..ewwww..." she got up and made her way to the where the drinks were served. As she made her way over and around the dancing and drinking bodies she ran right into Andrew, nearly knocking over the drunk friend they were helping.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 28, 2017, 07:06:11 AM
Sunny smiled. "Well, we've got two years to plan."

Cole shrugged and looked off into the yard. He could see the dim red dots where people were smoking, and he wondered if he should join them. But instead he turned to Mary and said, "I'm probably going to go completely nuts and kill myself in the next few years, so I don't beer is going to hurt me that bad."

Andrew was about to reply to Ferris when he felt someone bump into him. "Hey, whoa!" he cried out, turning to see who it was.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 28, 2017, 07:12:47 AM
Adeline wrung her shirt once more and tied her shirt into a knot and smiled. "Haven't seen you around before... Adeline or Addie for short." The shirt stuck to her and since she was wearing a white shirt, you could see her undergarments.

Mary inhaled sharply and placed her empty glass on the side. "Honey, don't be so morbid." She replied fishing out a cigarette from the packet and placed it in between her lips.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 28, 2017, 08:08:02 AM
"Oh hell yeah, you're right! It'll be an extravaganza, maybe I'll even get balloons!" Chris was beaming now. He wasn't drunk by any means, but the shots he'd taken earlier and the beer he was drinking now were making him feel a bit fuzzy.

Ferris peered around Andrew, his eyes a bit wide at who had disturbed them. "You good?"
(Life update: I had cheba hut for lunch. It was bomb. Wasn't high.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 28, 2017, 12:45:41 PM
"I love balloons!" Sunny's eyes lit up as soon as he mentioned them. "They're like my favorite thing!"

Cole shrugged and took another sip of beer. "Life as a werewolf. The crazy is just on the horizon."

(Cool cool.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 28, 2017, 01:23:44 PM
"No kidding? Okay, what kind of balloons?" Chris asked as he took another sip. "Like, just regular round ones or those metallic ones that are like letters or numbers? They're pretty festive. They could spell out Beer or something."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 28, 2017, 01:36:22 PM
"I like pink ones. And the metallic-y foil looking ones. Oooh! And the ones with, like, confetti inside them. Confetti is my other favorite thing." The alcohol was definitely starting to make Sunny light headed. She hadn't been quite this excited about balloons twenty minutes ago
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 28, 2017, 03:11:56 PM
"Cool, cool, confetti and balloons. I'll just store that in my brain vault," Chris laughed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 29, 2017, 01:20:24 AM
(Wahhh I was doing college stuff!)
Adeline wrung her shirt once more and tied her shirt into a knot and smiled. "Haven't seen you around before... Adeline or Addie for short." The shirt stuck to her and since she was wearing a white shirt, you could see her undergarments.

Mary inhaled sharply and placed her empty glass on the side. "Honey, don't be so morbid." She replied fishing out a cigarette from the packet and placed it in between her lips.


"Nice to meet you." He said, keeping his gaze fixed on her face. "I'm Xaviar, but most people just call me Xaviar." His eyes squinted as he flashed her his usual goofy grin.
Sunny smiled. "Well, we've got two years to plan."

Cole shrugged and looked off into the yard. He could see the dim red dots where people were smoking, and he wondered if he should join them. But instead he turned to Mary and said, "I'm probably going to go completely nuts and kill myself in the next few years, so I don't beer is going to hurt me that bad."

Andrew was about to reply to Ferris when he felt someone bump into him. "Hey, whoa!" he cried out, turning to see who it was.
"So sorry! These heathens don't seem to get what personal space is." She squeaked out, "Are you okay?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 29, 2017, 03:17:43 AM
(I love Rachel already. "Heathens" is one of the best words ever.)

"What do you like?" Sunny asked him. "I need stuff for my brain vault."

"I'm fine. And Trent is so drunk that he's probably fine, too." Andrew looked over at Trent, who had decided to just lie down in the middle of thnfloor, apparently giving up on life.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 29, 2017, 03:20:45 AM
"What do I like?" Chris repeated. He wasn't really sure how to answer. "I like...um, I like my friends, I guess."

Ferris followed Andrew's gaze and shrugged. "Relatable," he mumbled.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 29, 2017, 01:24:53 PM
Sunny raised her eyebrows. "I hope so. But I meant, like balloons and shit. What kind of party stuff do you like?"

"Oh yeah," Andrew muttered. Studio projects got the best of him most of the time.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 29, 2017, 01:31:20 PM
"Oh shit, I love cake," Chris laughed.

"Rough day?" Ferris asked, his gaze sliding over to Andrew again.

Post by: EloiseNagel on August 30, 2017, 02:53:26 AM
Rachel looked between the three friends and sighed. "Well just to make it a formal conversation, I'm Rachel, blogger and mythologist extraordinar!" She held out her hand towards Andrew.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 30, 2017, 04:13:52 AM
Sunny nodded in agreement. "Cake is good. What's your favorite kind?"

Andrew smiled and shook Rachel's hand. "Andrew. Mythologist extraordinare, huh?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 30, 2017, 04:20:53 AM
"Vanilla. I like it to be pretty dense, too," Chris explained. "What's yours? Or are you a pie person?"

Ferris tilted his head. "What kind of mythology? Or just all?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 30, 2017, 04:33:54 AM
"Xavier, love the name." Adeline smiled back, she pulled out a bottle out of the bucket and popped the cap off. "You want?"

"Beats being in the ocean," Mary shivered at the thought and took a long exhale. "You know... id love to be one of these humans, and be so... so... oblivious to everything..."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

"Beats being in the ocean," Mary shivered at the thought and took a long exhale. "You know... id love to be one of these humans, and be so... so... oblivious to everything..."
Xaviar looked down at his now empty solo cup, "Sure, thanks." He took the bottle carefully and poured its contents into his cup.
 
Rachel shrugged, "A bit of everything I suppose, mostly European mytholog." She said beaming, "Are you guys interested in the courses as well?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 30, 2017, 10:57:45 AM
"I like pistachio cake, and really only eat pie on March 14," Sunny said. She hoped he would get the joke.

"You're not like the other mers, are you?" Cole asked. "I mean, they were humans who turned into mer, but you're like...the real deal. The original."

"I am, actually, but I wasn't sure how it would fit into my schedule." Andrew nodded once and pushed his glasses further up his nose.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 30, 2017, 11:02:33 AM
Chris laughed at her joke, chuckling after a few moments. "I don't think I've ever actually eaten pie on pi day."

"My major kind of requires me to know some stuff about it, but I've never taken a class or anything," Ferris shrugged. The gears were turning in his head. Wasn't this Xaviar's friend? Aka the werewolf? If she was so interested in mythology, wouldn't she pick up on something being off with him eventually?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 30, 2017, 03:05:16 PM
Yay! I'm not the only one into this stuff! she cheered internally. "That's cool! There are a ton of openings still available, I'm sure that the teacher would looove more students!" She said suggested. For her, the more people in her mythology class, the less she felt like a complete and utter weirdo.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 30, 2017, 08:09:56 PM
"So did you come alone to this party?" Adeline took a swig and jumped up to sit on the ledge.

"You have a keen eye." Mary stood on her cigarette and turned towards him. "But I'll take that as a compliment."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 31, 2017, 12:07:21 AM
"You're missing out. Eating pie on Pi Day is great, especially if you're with math nerds." Sunny laughed, finishing off her drink. Math nerds were great, but she was more of an anatomy nerd herself.

"Do Sunny and Ferris know that?" Cole asked her. He decided he needed more beer,  than he would wait until the conversation was finished.

Andrew nodded slowly. The more he knew, the better he could do his job. "I might take you up on that, actually."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 31, 2017, 12:30:01 AM
"Are you a math nerd?" Chris asked, raising an eyebrow. He supposed he was one, but that was just because he was a space nerd.

"Wait, what do you study?" Ferris asked Andrew. If there were two cryptid hunters around, he didn't know if befriending both of them was the greatest idea.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 31, 2017, 01:05:47 AM
Xaviar smiled, "Nah I came with my best friend, but she wasn't doing anything but blogging, so I decided to go find someone to have a real conversation with." He took a sip of his drink and sighed,"So... come here often?" He asked, followed by another cheesy grin.

"Awesome! And it's mythology, ya know vampires, Bigfoot, the Greek gods! All that jazz." She smiled wide. She always got excited when talking about mythology, especially when there was somebody who actually was interested.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 31, 2017, 01:55:35 AM
"They never asked, so I never told them." Mary replied, her eyes flickered down into his cup and she leaned forward, she bit her lip and her finger circled the rim of the cup, slowly it filled back up.

Adeline grinned back at him and took a long swig. "I live around here, so I get first dibs to the parties."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 31, 2017, 02:36:55 AM
Sunny shrugged. "Not really. They can be funny, though."

Cole's eyes widened as the bottle refilled itself. "How...how did you do that?"

"Art therapy. But I try to take as many filler classes as I can," Andrew explained to Ferris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 31, 2017, 02:51:44 AM
"What kind of nerd are you, then?" Chris took a drink and frowned when he realized he was nearing the bottomof the can.

"Oh, gotcha," Ferris nodded. "So you're into art? Like pottery or painting?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 31, 2017, 03:41:05 AM
"You're just full of questions aren't you?" Mary leaned back and crossed her legs, "don't you know that mers have special abilities?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 31, 2017, 04:40:49 AM
"Anatomy and science, mostly." Sunny looked over at Chris and frowned. "I can grab you another, if you want."

"I kind of knew. I just didn't know it was stuff like that." Cole shrugged and took a swig of the new beer. It wasn't half bad.

"Yeah, I like art," Andrew said. "And art therapy would be, like, teaching people to express themselves with art and stuff."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 31, 2017, 05:00:23 AM
"Let's just say this is my party trick." Mary replied drawing her knees together. "Can I ask you something? Since you've finished interrogating me."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

Cole nodded. "Yeah, that's fine."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on August 31, 2017, 06:34:11 AM
"Do you..." Mary then bit her lip in hesitation, she felt her questions were to personal to ask. "You want a smoke?"

Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 31, 2017, 06:36:45 AM
"Nah, I'm good. I told myself I'd only have a couple beers tonight," Chris explained. "Are you a bio major?"

"I know some people that could probably benefit from that," Ferris said with a shrug.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 31, 2017, 07:53:54 AM
"For now. I'm hoping to get into the nursing program," Sunny said. She went over to grab another root beer, and realized too late that she'd stuck her hand straight into the partially melted, soupy ice. With her brain going hazy from the alcohol, she hadn't even thought of it. "Shit," she cursed, and started running toward the nearest empty room. She only had seconds.

"Sure. What kind do you got?" Cole asked, and set his bottle down beside him.

Andrew chuckled. "Well, when I get my PhD in a few years, just send 'me my way."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 31, 2017, 09:02:34 AM
"Lucky, well I live around here too.... but honestly I'm not the party going type." Xaviar sighed, his pecs protruding as he reached up and stretched back.

"That's an interesting concept! My personal therapy is blogging. Helps get my mind cleared." Rachel said, making a looping gesture towards her temple.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 31, 2017, 09:26:26 AM
Chris was extremely confused at first, but then he realized what was happening so he ran after Sunny to cover her just in case.

"I might give it a try, too," Ferris grinned at Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 31, 2017, 09:33:17 AM
Sunny found a bathroom with no one in it, and managed to remove her shoes and shorts before her legs fused into her bright yellow tail, and she fell to the floor. Somehow, she had managed not to crack her head open on the sink.

"Just go to the third floor of the art building," Andrew said to Ferris, and then he asked Rachel, "What do you blog about?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: EloiseNagel on August 31, 2017, 10:39:42 AM
"Well, what else? About my research." She said beaming. This is so cool! So worth leaving my house!
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on August 31, 2017, 11:05:32 AM
Chris stood in front of the door to make sure no one went in. "You okay?" He asked when he heard the loud thump of her falling.

Ferris nodded to Andrew and then looked at Rachel. "About mythology?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 31, 2017, 11:09:01 AM
"Yeah, I'm fine," she called out. "Would you actually mind helping me turn over? You can come in." Sunny pulled at the elastic band of her now shredded underwear, still attached around her waist. Maybe Chris wouldn't notice.

"Yeah, like what specifically?" Andrew asked.

Chris hesitated, then opened the door and shut it behind him. "Do you get bruises from this?" He asked as he knelt down beside her to help her over.

"I thought they were more in the pacific northwest?" Ferris raised an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on August 31, 2017, 01:39:47 PM
"From falling? Sometimes. Depends on how well I can catch myself," Sunny explained. She felt weightless whenever she was underwater, but on land, her tail felt heavy, at least to her.

Andrew shrugged, his gaze drifting over to the stairs leading up to the second story. "I guess they could be anywhere, right? Since no one's ever found one."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

Chris nodded before he flipped her onto her back. He leaned his weight back on his heels and glanced at her tail. "It's pretty," he said without really thinking about it.

"I guess. I mean, skunk ape is in Florida and stuff," Ferris shrugged.

"I've been saving this joints, you know laying back in the pool and smoking it with friends... show my tail to everyone won't be appropriate would it now?" Mary replied fishing them out from her small bag.

"Well... what kind of person are you if you're not a party person?" Adeline's eyes flickered from his chest with a chuckle and leaned a little forward towards Xavier.

(Totally not! Go ahead and fill out a charrie card!)

Sunny smiled and gently ran her hand over her scales. "Thanks. It's kinda weird; I never used to like yellow until this happened."

"Joints, huh? I think Ferris would be more into those," Cole said, but he still reached for one anyway. What was it going to hurt?

Andrew raised an eyebrow, nodding. "Dead animals? What kind of animals?"

(That's fine, but most of the mermaids started as regular humans who were then transformed into them, and I was planning for them to have more psychic abilities rather than water-based abilities.)

(Whoops sorry for that ^^ xD )

"Yes, good times with Ferris. However I did save them for a special occasion." Mary shuffled over lighter in her hand and lit it for him, she placed it in between her lips and lit her own. Mary closed her eyes inhaling deeply, letting everything that has happened over the past few weeks rush over in her mind. She finally exhaled with a little cough in the end.

{I can change the powers and the backstory if you`d like.}

Tyler dragged Grace down the sidewalk towards the building that had loud music.
        "Come on Grace," He whined "Let's have some fun"
        "People aren't fun," Grace said loudly

Andrew raised an eyebrow, nodding. "Dead animals? What kind of animals?"
"Really? I've always kinda liked it. Like...sunshine and suflowers, ya know?" Chris shrugged and leaned his head against the wall. 

Ferris' throat tightened. He knew exactly what she was talking about, and he needed to tell Cole or Chris. Maybe not Xaviar...he didn't know how unbiased that guy could be.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 01, 2017, 12:35:38 PM
(Yes, I would appreciate that.)

Sunny shrugged, and began trying to dab the water off her with a hand towel she'd managed to find. "My parents always dressed me in yellow when I was little. Yellow and pink and white, all the time."

Cole took a drag off the joint - not even an overly deep one - and was practically coughing up a lung when he exhaled. What was supposed to be fun about this, again? Beer didn't betray him like this.

Xaviar smirked. "Well I'm kind of a, you know, 'piña coladas and getting caught in the rain' kind of guy."

"Like squirrels, rabbits, Mrs. Jones's cat. Bigfoot aren't known to go after big prey, according to my research." She said pushing up invisible glasses. Her electric blue eyes squinted at Ferris, "you wouldn't happen to know where there have been any Bigfoot sightings, would you? Cause that would be awesome!!" She exclaimed jumping up excitedly at the last phrase.

Mary opened her eyes, she felt as she puffed out her worries escaped too. A wide smile appeared one on her face, different from her grins she felt truly happy. "This gets to me more than alcohol."

"So in the same respect... you like making love at midnight?" Adeline slurped her drink, leaning back slightly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 02, 2017, 05:35:20 AM
Sunny smiled at that. "I really did look like sherbet ice cream. It was awful. And I had the ugliest bangs." As she talked, she noticed her scales starting to lose their bright colors, and she knew they would turn into legs soon.

"Gets to me, too," Cole said around his coughs. Still, the longer he smoked, the more relaxed he began to feel.

"I haven't yet, but I'll let you know if I see one," Andrew said casually. Rachel was definitely...interesting.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 02, 2017, 05:48:37 AM
Chris smiled as well and chuckled. "Well, guess it's good you grew them out. I had a god-awful bowl cut."

Ferris blinked once, then registerwd what she'd said and shook his head. "No, haven't seen anything."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 02, 2017, 07:23:56 AM
"Cole... if you had the chance would you become a full time human? Would you?" Mary extended her legs out and swung her legs like a child.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 02, 2017, 07:34:57 AM
Cole nodded, closing his eyes. "I'd do anything to be human again. Anything." He took another drag off the joint, smiling at how it made his head go fuzzy. "What about you?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 02, 2017, 07:40:57 AM
Mary took another drag, she leaned her head back and puffed out the smoke with a nod. "Definitely, you know how many times I've been nearly caught my the fishermans net? Nearly being caught up with the awful storms?" She shook her head and leaned her head on his shoulder. "That's why I've come back to shore here, I hope to find someone who can make it happen for me."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 02, 2017, 07:59:53 AM
"Life's not all that fun, but what can we do?" Cole lowered himself so he was laying down. "But I know it'll kill me, sooner or later." The thought made him want to cry, although he managed to keep himself together.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 02, 2017, 08:09:15 AM
Mary rested her head onto the nook of his beck and sighed deeply. "What did I  just say? Don't be so morbid. I wont let it happen to you, I won't. "
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 02, 2017, 08:19:39 AM
Cole relaxed when she said that. "You promise?" he asked.

Post by: LittleK on September 02, 2017, 08:31:21 AM
"You want me to make a blood pact is that what you guys do? I promise, truly. I want you want, to be liberated." Mary's pinky linked with his and tightened her grip.

(Stoner 101: When one is smoking a joint, the proper term for it would be taking a hit. Ask me all questions on smoking weed, I will guide you.)

Chris smiled as well and chuckled. "Well, guess it's good you grew them out. I had a god-awful bowl cut."

Ferris blinked once, then registerwd what she'd said and shook his head. "No, haven't seen anything."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 02, 2017, 02:25:26 PM
(I thought "taking a hit" was just for bongs.)
(Sorry dude I totally didn't see those :c )

"Oh, really? Like the early Beatles sort of look?" she asked. Her tail finally split back into her legs, and Sunny moved the towel to cover herself while she pulled her shorts back up.

"But I'll keep you updated," Andrew said again. Then he turned to Ferris and said, "You know anyone who smokes?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 02, 2017, 02:38:59 PM
(You can hit or rip or a bong. But hits are for everything. Except edibles, you just eat those)

Chris averted his eyes at the right time and shrugged. "Pretty much, it was bad."

Ferris slowly grinned. "Do I ever? Here, come on," he nodded over his shoulder.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 02, 2017, 02:48:12 PM
(There should be a term for edibles. They shouldn't be left out.)

Sunny had her shorts on in no time, and she slid her shoes back on. "You can look now; I'm good," she said to Chris.

Andrew slowly grinned, as well, and followed Ferris to wherever he was going.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 02, 2017, 03:08:43 PM
(I agree, equal rights for cannabis in all forms!)

Chris turned his head and glanced her over once. "So weird..." he mumbled.

Ferris looked over his shoulder and smiled at Andrew before he went outside. There was a circle of people sitting by a fire pit, and Ferris headed up to them and patted one of the guys on the shoulder. "Todd, whats up?" He said cheerfully. "Mind if my buddy and I join?"
"Nah man!" Todd said and made room for Ferris and Andrew to join the circle.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 02, 2017, 03:13:36 PM
"What's weird?" Sunny raised an eyebrow at him and carefully stood up.

"Thanks, dude." Andrew smiled and sat next to Ferris in the circle.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 02, 2017, 03:16:27 PM
"Your transformation. Does...it hurt?" Chris asked as he stood as well.

A pipe was passed around. Ferris took a big hit before passing to Andrew. "Want me to light it or do you want to?" He asked, flicking the lighter.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 03, 2017, 01:36:19 AM
She shook her head. "No, not really. My legs just kinda tingle, and it feels weird."

"Well, since you've got yours out..." Andrew shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 03, 2017, 03:34:19 AM
(I'm so glad my posts made sense last night lmao)

"Huh," Chris nodded a bit and opened the door to go out for the both of them.

Ferris grinned and flicked it on again to light the pipe for him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 03, 2017, 04:12:25 AM
(Lol XD I called my roommate last night and we talked for almost two hours. She was so high, it was hilarious.)

"Why? Does...yours hurt?" Too late, she realized it probably wasn't a good question to ask him.

Andrew took a hit (happy now?) off the pipe, breathing the smoke deep into his lungs.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 03, 2017, 04:19:51 AM
(I got home and I was trying to talk to my mom and she was a bit wine drunk and I was high so I was talking like a million miles an hour about a million different things and she could not keep up)

"I black out after the first couple seconds," Chris shrugged. "I don't really know. It hurts during that time, though." He was being kind of modest. The pain was excruciating, hence the blackout. Every. Time.

(;)) Ferris put his lighter in his lap and leaned back slightly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 03, 2017, 04:44:28 AM
(My roommate would forget what she was talking about by the time she was finishing her sentences. And then I decided to mess with her by asking her things like, "Do you think bacteria have feelings?")

Sunny frowned and reached out to touch his arm. "I'm sorry, Chris."

Andrew passed the pipe to the next person, closing his eyes. Yeah, he would have to find more time to do this.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 03, 2017, 04:52:29 AM
(Oh my god. There was this one time I took edibles and I had way too many, literally never been so high in my life, and my concept of time was so bad. We'd be sitting for like ten minutes and I'd feel like itd been hours i was so freaked out)

Chris glanced at her hand, then met her eyes again. He quickly gave her a reassuring smile that didn't reach his eyes. "Hey, don't worry about it.

"I probably need to find a better, healthier way to relax but this just takes the edge off of everything." Ferris sighed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 03, 2017, 12:47:46 PM
(She had edibles, too. Three of them.)

Sunny managed a small smile, and nodded. After a beat of silence, she said, "I'm gonna get more booze. But more carefully this time. Wanna come with?"

"Yeah, same here. I actually have healthier ways to relax; this is just my favorite." Andrew leaned back and took a deep breath.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 03, 2017, 12:50:41 PM
(HOW DID SHE NOT DIE.)

"Sure," his expression relaxed and he turned to make his way through the crowd with her. They got some weird looks, which didn't surprise him. They had just come out of the bathroom together.

"Like art?" Ferris asked, looking over at Andrew now. Now that he thought about it, he supposed swimming was another way he relaxed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 03, 2017, 01:46:22 PM
(I have no clue.)

Sunny ignored the looks, and carefully reached for the driest beer she could.

Andrew nodded. "Yeah, man. And working out."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 03, 2017, 01:57:48 PM
(Ahh i wouldn't be able to function after taking 3 edibles.)

"Oh, hey, let me," Chris reached out and grabbed it for her, then quickly dried it off as best he could with his shirt before he handed it to her.

"Really? Like, weights and stuff?" Ferris glanced over Andrew's arms.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 03, 2017, 02:03:14 PM
"Thanks." Sunny smiled and opened the can. "Do you want one?"

"Yeah, weights and stuff. And running. I run sometimes, too." Andrew watched the pipe as it was passed around.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 03, 2017, 02:06:26 PM
"Nah, I'm good," Chris shook his head and then looked around to see what was happening. The party wasn't quite as bumping as it had been a while ago. People had taken to standing around or sitting and talking with their drinks and joints. The music was still playing, but not quite as loudly as before.

"Bad for the joints," Ferris said and took a big hit, passing the pipe to Andrew as he exhaled through his nose.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 03, 2017, 02:40:24 PM
Sunny's eyes wandered throughout the crowd, which either had thinned out some, or was just spread in a way that made it look like that. "People are probably gonna think we had sex or something," she said before she thought about it.

"Isn't everything bad for the joints?" Andrew took another hit off the pipe, and passed it along again once he'd exhaled.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 03, 2017, 02:42:32 PM
Chris blinked a couple times. "Well, you're not wrong," he agreed with a nonchalant shrug.

"Yeah, basically. Bipedalism has its drawbacks," Ferris sighed and closed his eyes to enjoy the breeze that brought in the salty ocean air.

"Hey Tyler," Grace carefully walked into the now quieting party "Tyler?" Grace had lost her curious brother

"H-hey," Tyler walked up to a group that had a few guys a girl excitingly chatting.  "Have you seen my sister?" he said while looking like a lost puppy
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 03, 2017, 03:21:47 PM
(Who is Tyler talking to?)

"Sorry." Sunny turned pink and looked back down at the can. "Sorry. Sometimes I just open my mouth and words come out."

Andrew nodded, closing his eyes again. His mind was hazy, but yet still not as hazy as he would have liked. "Whatever that means, it sounds like something I would agree with."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 03, 2017, 03:30:46 PM
"Don't worry about it," Chris chuckled. "Does it bother you that people will think that?"

"Like, you know how we walk on two legs? That's bipedalism." Ferris explained and the pipe was passed back to the two of them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 03, 2017, 03:40:46 PM
"I...don't know." Sunny's frown deepened. She hadn't thought before of what people would think. It was weird, to have to consider it.

"Ohhh, okay." Andrew passed the pipe when he was done, and decided to lay down on his back. "I feel dizzy."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 03, 2017, 03:43:28 PM
"Hey now, turn that frown upside down, little miss sunshine," Chris said when he saw her expression. "Don't worry about it. People can think whatever they want, it's not like it'll actually do anything to you."

Ferris laid down as well. "I like how it makes the edges of my vision go a little fuzzy. Its like being in a dream, and everything is in slow-mo."

"Yeah, yeah that's fun," Andrew agreed, and folded his hands underneath his head.

"No," Chris said plainly. "You're a pretty girl, and it's not like one night stands are unheard of."

Ferris looked at the stars, then smiled to himself. "I love nighttime."

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 04, 2017, 06:06:15 AM
Sunny smiled again, more relaxed this time. Being told she was pretty was nice. "Okay. Thanks, Chris."

"The moon," Andrew said. "Have you ever looked at the moon? Like, really looked at it? It's awesome."

(Wait. I didn't tell you about the werewolves' and mermaids' origins, did I?)

Sunny sipped at the beer absently, not really interested in it now.

"I don't remember anything after the first few minutes," Cole answered. "But before then, I just...don't feel like a person at all. Just like a monster. "

"It's like...cheese. Swiss cheese in the sky. I really used to think that when I was little," Andrew laughed. He had been such a stupid kid. And even though he didn't need it, he took another drag from the pipe when it came back his way.

"Did you ever watch Avatar: The Last Airbender? That show gave me mad respect for the moon, man. Changed my whole life," Ferris sighed wistfully.

Xaviar smiled at Adeline, "And if I am? The man that you looked for?" He emptied his cup and looked inside it, half-disappointed that it wasn't as full as he thought it would be.

Rachel went back to her couch, once cannibus came up in a conversation she was out. She sat down, and then realizing she still hadn't gotten a drink got up with an angsty groan to walk back to the table with soda pop.

Andrew nodded slowly. "I...yeah, I've seen that show. It was awesome. I loved it."
[Uh huh]

"I dunno. The beach?" He suggested and took a step toward the door. "Just, anywhere not here." For some reason he was starting to feel kind of anxious at the party.

"Me too, man. I'm gonna get a tattoo for it some day." Ferris closed his eyes as he reminisced about being an Earth bender. Now, it seemed, he was more suited for water bending.

"Sounds good to me." Sunny smiled and threw her half empty can into the trash, then headed for the door with him. "Do you like swimming?"


"Do you have any tattoos?" Andrew asked Ferris, and slowly opened his eyes. He was sure they were bloodshot as all get out, but he wasn't going to complain. He felt really good.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 04, 2017, 12:24:40 PM
"Yeah, but I doubt I'm as good of a swimmer," he chuckled and then breathed in deeply when they got outside.

"Yeah," Ferris sat up and lifted his shirt to show Andrew the piece on his ribs, a large scenery piece of the Amazon rainforest.

"And I don't have my bathing suit anyway," Sunny commented. The night air was cool and clean, and she breathed it in deeply.

"Not into swimming in your clothes? I'd suggest skinny dipping, but you don't strike me as the type," Chris eyed her.

"A guy named Cohen, he works at Tribal Rites," Ferris informed him, trying to keep his flush off on his cheeks at bay.

Sunny laughed. "You don't want to see me skinny dip, trust me. It wouldn't be a pretty sight." She slid her hands into her pockets and said, "I think you could be the type, if you ever got the chance."

Andrew nodded slowly and leaned back onto his elbows. "Cool. I'll go see him for mine, then."

"Yeah?" Chris laughed and ran his fingers back through his hair as they walked.

"Tell him I sent you," he grinned. "What do you want done?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 04, 2017, 01:27:56 PM
"Yeah. I dunno, you just strike me as that kind of person." Sunny smiled again, and realized that with how far away the beach was, she was very glad she'd worn sensible shoes.

Andrew shrugged. "I don't know yet. Maybe...yeah, no, I don't know."

"If the occasion arose, I probably would. No reason not to." Chris put his hands in his pockets and kicked a rock along the sidewalk. "So...whats it like? Being in the water and stuff?"

"Fair," Ferris nodded. "Just promise me you won't get something lame."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 04, 2017, 01:53:51 PM
Sunny paused, thinking about how to answer him. "It's...it's like being in a completely different world. I feel graceful, and free, and just...it's so wonderful." The more she thought about it, the more she wanted to dive in, to submerse herself beneath the waves. But she couldn't just ditch Chris on the shore.

"Never. I'd never do that." Andrew out his hand over his heart, and paused. "Will you tell me your name again? I'm bad with names."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 04, 2017, 02:55:55 PM
Chris closed his eyes for a moment, trying to imagine it. "That must be nice," he said softly.

"Ferris," he told him, trying not to feel too dejected.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 04, 2017, 03:09:45 PM
(Okay I can't remember what I originally said Sunny's ability was, but whatever it was, I'm changing it to this.)

"Mm-hmm." She nodded, biting her lower lip, and slowly reached out to hold Chris's hand. Once their skin was touching, Sunny thought of the memory of her last swim - the freedom, the sense of belonging, the peace it brought her - and allowed it to flow from her mind into his.

"Ferris," Andrew repeated to himself. Ferris with the cool tattoo and chill personality. "Okay. Got it. I've got it now."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 04, 2017, 03:14:25 PM
(I like this.)

Chris let a slow smile creep across his face as he enjoyed the sensation, so much different from the confines of his transformation. It slowly dawned on him that this wasn't a normal occurence, being able to feel this, so he blinked his eyes open and stared at Sunny. "How did you do that?"

Ferris smiled at him, then paused to study Andrew for a second. "Good, I hope you don't forget me when you sober up, either."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 04, 2017, 03:19:08 PM
"I've been able to do it since I first turned into a mermaid. And it goes the other way around; you can show me things, too." Sunny shrugged. "But I don't know how it works, exactly."

Andrew locked eyes with Ferris, and slowly smiled back. "I won't. But you can't forget about me, either."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 04, 2017, 03:23:46 PM
"Oh," Chris said, continuing to stare at her in mild awe. "Can the others do stuff like that? Ferris and Mary?"

Ferris felt the heat in his face again, but he didn't look away. "I won't, I wouldn't ever."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 02:09:47 AM
"I think so, yeah. I know Mary can, like, bend water and stuff. But I'm not really sure what Ferris can do." Sunny wasn't even sure if Ferris knew, and she didn't know if she should try bringing it up. Hey Ferris, have you noticed any weird or cool psychic powers where you previously didn't have any? There didn't seem to be a way to casually mentioned that.

Andrew didn't look away, either, and after a while, he asked, "Do you want to get some food?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 05:21:09 AM
(I mean, given the circumstances, it wouldn't be too weird to ask.)

"Huh. Weird," Chris hummed noncommittally and studied her before he put his hands into his pockets and started walking.

"Dude, you read my mind," Ferris grinned and stood up, then offered a hand to Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 06:42:11 AM
(Maybe she will, lol.)

Sunny hadn't realized she'd been holding his hand the entire time, and so she slid her hands back into her pockets and looked ahead as they walked.

Andrew took Ferris' hand and stood up. His head spin a bit as he did so, but he could still walk okay. "Thanks, man." He smiled, then frowned, thinking if he knew any restaurants that would be open. "Where do you want to go?"

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

(OMGEEE I'm so behind! I'm sorry! I didn't realize college would get this busy!!)
Xaviar smiled at Adeline, "And if I am? The man that you looked for?" He emptied his cup and looked inside it, half-disappointed that it wasn't as full as he thought it would be.

Rachel went back to her couch, once cannibus came up in a conversation she was out. She sat down, and then realizing she still hadn't gotten a drink got up with an angsty groan to walk back to the table with soda pop.

"Then you'd only be disappointed." Adeline replied with a scoff, she took the nearest beer tap and filled up for him.

"A monster that's killed?" Mary's voice seemed a happy go lucky sort as she held out her arms and stood suddenly, with a stumble every so often her legs would feel sluggish from being out of water for so long, but after the joint she felt as her legs didn't work at all.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 09:37:37 AM
Chris smiled when the beach suddenly came into view. "You know, I always wanted to go to California for school. But the complete opposite side of the country seemed too drastic."

Ferris tried to ignore the way his heart sped up when Andrew touched his hand. There was no way this guy would be into him. "Uh...Mcdonalds?" He suggested. "Or..theres sonic!" (Idek if sonic goes out east. Its not in california i thought they were everywhere)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 09:54:23 AM
(Well this is a fictional town, so we'll say there's a Sonic. Sonic is bomb and it needs to be everywhere.)

"What are you studying, again?" Sunny asked him. "Have I asked you that before? I'm sorry. My memory is crap sometimes."

Cole stood up and walked with her nodding his head. "Yeah. Yeah, I've killed things. Just animals, though. Never people." He frowned when he saw Mary stumble, and held out a hand for her. "Need some help?"

"Sonic sounds awesome. Let's go!" Andrew grinned. He knew for sure that he was too high to drive, but wasn't sure what Ferris was thinking.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 10:03:03 AM
"Engineering. I want to be a pilot for NASA," Chris said proudly. "And no, you didn't ask. What are you studying?"

"I can drive if you're cool with it," Ferris offered. He'd driven before when he was way more stoned than this, but he didn't want to make Andrew uncomfortable. "Or we can walk, or call an uber."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 05, 2017, 10:05:29 AM
(Sonic?)

Mary took his hand and with a grunt she pulled herself up, "traumatic it must be for you then." She levelled herself, as she let go of his hand and held onto the banister. "these human legs sure are heavy."

(It's a drive in restaurant with pretty good food. You're missing out, Kieya.)
(Go to the Redwood National Forest! Those trees are so cool!)

"Biology, for now, but I'm hoping to get in to the nursing program." Sunny smiled and straightened her back as she said it.

"I don't ever remember doing it, but no, waking up with blood on you is pretty traumatic. And what do you mean, they're heavy?" Cole asked. He needed either another beer or another joint, he decided. Or maybe one of each.

"I'm fine with that," Andrew said with a nod. "But I won't be able to drive anytime soon."

"That's awesome! Do you know what kind of nursing?"
Chris tilted his head.

"No problem," Ferris grinned and jingled his keysbefore walking to his car.

"I haven't figured that part out yet," she admitted with a sheepish grin, "but right now I'm leaning towards pediatric oncology."

"We can go swimming, if you want," Cole offered. He didn't mind relaxing by the water for a bit.

Andrew walked with him, grinning now, as well. Smoking and Sonic were practically made for each other.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 10:50:58 AM
"Really? Have you heard of St. Jude?" (PEDIATRIC ONCOLOGY IM SORRY I HAD TO) Chris asked her.

Ferris opened the passenger door of his car for Andrew before he walked to the other side. He turned it on and held the aux cord out to Andrew. "Play us a tune, jazz man."

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 11:12:05 AM
(I DID THAT FOR YOU DUDE)

Sunny nodded and took her shoes off as they stepped into the sand. "Oh, yeah. I'd love to work there. I want to help kids, you know? I love kids."

Andrew plugged his phone in and started playing "Fly Me to the Moon". "You like Frank Sinatra?" he asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 12:18:06 PM
(TRUE FRIENDSHIP)

"That'd be amazing," Chris smiled and followed her, kicking his sandals off to enjoy the cool sand.

"Oh yeah. I'm a huge fan of classics like this...the Rat Pack and all, you know?" Ferris grinned.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 12:22:28 PM

(I know this will probably never happen but if we ever get the chance to meet irl I wanna do it.)

"I honestly could listen to anything. I've always had a huge fascination with the 40's and stuff, but I loved the Andrews Sisters and Bing Crosby," Ferris continued, still smiling as he tapped his fingers along to Sinatra's crooning.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 12:56:09 PM
(Cool cool!)
(Somehow I didn't see Chris's dialogue. Lol. What is my life coming to.)

"Yeah, it would be." Sunny set her shoes down to next to his sandals and stared out at the waves, almost hypnotized. She had never gone swimming at night before, and the motion of the moonlit waves seemed to be calling her out to sea. She belonged out there.

"I'll play them next," Andrew promised. He looked out the window at the passing scenery, and then said, "Wait, where are we going again?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 12:59:47 PM
[Relatable. Idk where my life is at rn lmao]

Chris watched the waves for a minute, then looked at her. "You can go out there, if you want. I don't mind," he told her.

"Sonic," Ferris reminded him, chuckling softly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 01:06:33 PM
( XD )

Sunny didn't respond, not having heard him; all she could hear now was the call of the water inside her head. She glanced up at the sky, noting that the moon was in its waxing phase, and gazed back out at the ocean. Slowly, trancelike, she began walking towards it.

"Oh, yeah, I remember now," Andrew mumbled, and leaned against the glass. Well, he'd definitely gotten too high tonight.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 01:09:36 PM
Chris frowned as he watched her, suddenly a bit concerned. "Sunny?" he asked, taking a step after her.

"You good, man?" Ferris asked. He'd definitely been where Andrew was before. It usually just knocked him out, and he was thankful he wasn't acting super paranoid. Yeah, he'd probably just sleep really well tonight.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 01:17:29 PM
She continued to walk towards the ocean, still not responding to Chris, though she stumbled every few steps. Her legs suddenly felt heavy and useless. Then she began removing her clothes, tossing them onto the sand beside her as she walked. Sunny didn't want to have anything between her skin and the water.

"I think I'll feel better when I eat something. But yeah, I'm good." Andrew sat up again and smiled, stretching his shoulders out.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 02:14:32 PM
"Sunny, wait," Chris said but was smacked in the face with an article of clothing. He gripped in his hand as he sped up to catch her, grabbing her wrist to stop her from touching the water.

"Well, your wish is my command," Ferris beamed as he pulled up to the Sonic speaker thing.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 02:25:22 PM
Being grabbed was enough to mostly snap Sunny out of her trance, though she still heard the call ringing in her mind, practically irresistible. She didn't know if she wanted to resist  it. Whether Chris was hearing it now, too, though, she wasn't sure; everything felt very jumbled and confused. "Chris," she mumbled, and closed her eyes, trying to reorient herself.

They were there already? Andrew took a deep breath, studying the menu. "What are you thinking?" he asked Ferris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 02:32:33 PM
"Hey, just focus on me," Chris said as he took hold of her other wrist and carefully guided her away from the water. He could kind of feel that longing to be in the water, and he assumed she just couldn't control her ability right then. He wondered if she really ever could control it, but he quickly shoved the thought aside to focus ongetting her in the right mind.

"Bacon burger with some tots and a slush," Ferris told him as he leaned out his now open window.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 02:40:23 PM
"I need to get out of here." Sunny held on to his wrists with her hands, concentrating on every step away from the water. She didn't want to leave, but this was really freaking her out.

"A slush sounds good," Andrew agreed. "And...mozz sticks. And a chili cheese dog."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 02:43:07 PM
Chris nodded and let go with one hand to put his arm around her and guide her up to the path theyd come on. He figured the further they were from the water, the better.

"You got it," Ferris winked at him then turned away to order before Andrew could see how horrorstricken he was with himself.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 02:50:45 PM
Sunny buttoned and rezipped her shorts as they walked, and suddenly realized she was only wearing her bra.
"Do you have my shirt?" she asked Chris.

Andrew wasn't sure how to react at first, but a smile slowly grew across his face. "Are we paying separately?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 02:52:50 PM
"Oh, yeah, here," Chris handed it over, not even realizing she hadn't been wearing it. "Sorry," he added, his face warm.

"Nah, I got it," Ferris told him and put both orders on the same tab.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 03:02:39 PM
"You're okay." Sunny yanked the shirt on over her head, and pulled her shoes on once she'd found them. Losing the contact of her bare feet to the sand helped to clear her head, and she sighed in relief.

"Thanks, man. You're the best." Andrew clapped Ferris on the shoulder, and relaxed back into the seat. He didn't remember ever unbuckling his seat belt, but apparently he had at some point.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 03:04:37 PM
Chris kept his eyes trained to the ground, then glanced up when he was pretty sure everything was clear. "I, um, I'm sorry. For taking you out here."

Ferris smiled over his shoulder at Andrew, then leaned back to wait for their food.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 03:11:34 PM
"You don't have to be sorry. I...that's never happened before." Sunny swallowed against the lump in her throat, closing her eyes again. "Last night, I wanted to go swimming, really badly. I was so tempted to just drop everything and go. But that...I've never felt anything like that. And I remember everything, you know? I knew exactly what I was doing."

Andrew looked over and studied Ferris for a moment, then slowly reached out and touched the ends of his hair. "How do you handle your hair being this long? Does it drive you crazy?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 03:15:22 PM
"With the full moon?" Chris asked, frowning as he thought about it. "That's...hm. well, you're okay so that's all that matters."

Ferris' brain short circuited for a moment as he tried to formulate an answer. "It uh..thats what I have the hat for," he said after clearing his throat a bit.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 03:26:47 PM
"I'm sorry. I'm so sorry, I just...I didn't know how to fight it," Sunny mumbled, wrapping her arms around herself. She pulled her phone out of her pocket and sent a quick text message to Ferris and Mary: Do NOT go near the ocean,
WHATEVER YOU DO.


"Do you have it all the time?" Andrew asked. He tended to get a bit too touchy when he smoked too much - personal space did not exist to him, his or anyone else's - and he continued to fiddle with Ferris' hair. He'd speak up if he felt uncomfortable, right? Other people usually did.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 03:29:07 PM
"Hey, hey, don't apologize," Chris assured her. "Do you want to go home?"

Ferris relaxed and shrugged. "Not when I'm asleep," he told him. He didn't mind Andrew playing with his hair, it felt nice.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 03:34:00 PM
Sunny shrugged. "I don't know. Do you?"

"But the rest of the time? Is it uncomfortable?" Andrew kept playing with his hair, zoning out somewhat.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 03:36:22 PM
"It's up to you," Chris shook his head. "We can keep wandering around or I can walk you to your house."

"Nah, it feels weird if im not wearing it, honestly," Ferris tolx him with a small smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 05, 2017, 03:47:07 PM
Sunny thought for a minute, and realized that she felt too wound up to sleep. "We can keep wandering around, if you want. I'm not that tired yet."

"I like it. It suits you." Andrew smiled and playfully pulled the brim of his hat down.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 05, 2017, 10:09:00 PM
"Sure," Chris nodded but didn't make a move away. He wanted to stay by her side.

A blush crept onto his cheeks, which was a little hard to see because of his freckles. "Oh, um, thank you," he said. Just then, the carhop arrived with their food and for once Ferris wished it had taken longer. He tore his eyes away from Andrews and handed them his card while he took the food.

(I think LunaFairy's character Tyler is trying to talk to Rachel.)

Sunny smiled softly, and brushed a strand of her hair off her face. "Where do you wanna go?"

Andrew set their slushes in the cupholders of Ferris' car, and took the bag from Ferris so he'd have more room. "Thanks for covering me," he said. "Now I owe you one."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 06, 2017, 04:24:00 AM
"Anywhere, you pick," Chris shrugged.

"Nah, don't worry about it," Ferris told him and ate a tot as he waited for the girl to return his card. When she did he tucked it back into his wallet. "So, wanna just eat here or go somewhere else?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 06, 2017, 01:54:40 PM
Sunny chewed her lower lip as she thought. "How...how about Sonic? Are you hungry?"

Andrew shrugged and took a bite out of one of his mozzarella sticks. "I don't care. Up to you, man."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 06, 2017, 02:31:15 PM
"Yeah, sounds good," Chris smiled at her and took a step in that direction.

"Let's hang here," Ferris shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 06, 2017, 03:00:03 PM
"Thanks, Chris." Sunny smiled again, warmer and happier this time, and began the trek to Sonic. She was glad he'd been there with her at the beach.

"Sounds good to me." Andrew nodded, smiling, and took a larger than necessary bite out if his chili cheese dog. But he couldn't help himself; it was just so good.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 06, 2017, 03:23:07 PM
"So, aside from the ocean craziness, have you had a good night?" Chris asked her.

Ferris started eating his burger and sipped on his slush.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 06, 2017, 11:32:58 PM
Sunny nodded. "Yeah, I have. You?"

"How is it?" Andrew asked after he finished chewing.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 06, 2017, 11:50:55 PM
"Oh yeah, definitely," Chris nodded. "It's been a nice distraction from everything from yesterday."

"Amazing," Ferris mumbled before he took another bite. "Yours?" He asked after swallowing.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 06, 2017, 11:56:55 PM
"Well, that's good then." She smiled, and reached up behind her head to braid her hair. She was getting tired of it being down and around her face. "You guys did seem pretty cranky yesterday."

"Awesome." Andrew grinned and took a sip of his slush. "Sonic was a good idea."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 07, 2017, 12:05:40 AM
"The moon does shit like that," Chris shrugged and watched her hands as she did her hair.

"Sometimes I have those," Ferris smiled.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 07, 2017, 12:11:03 AM
"Fucking moon," Sunny grumbled. She secured her braid with a hair tie she usually wore around her wrist and then slid her hands back in her pockets, being careful not to elbow Chris in the face as she did so.

"Me too, sometimes. Not a lot though." Andrew smiled back at him and held out the mozzarella sticks to him. "You want one?"

(So I found out there's a Sonic near my school and now I'm determined to go.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 07, 2017, 12:23:56 AM
"Yeah, fucking moon," Chris agreed with a shrug.

"Thanks," Ferris took it and then offered his tots. "You can have some of these if you want."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 07, 2017, 01:25:40 AM
"Do you feel better today?" Sunny asked, looking up at him.

"Thanks." Andrew took a couple tots and popped them into his mouth, trying to be cool.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 07, 2017, 02:04:46 AM
"Oh yeah. Had a nap, all is well," Chris flashed her a smile.

Ferris smiled at him and took a bite of the mozzarella stick.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 07, 2017, 02:19:34 AM
Sunny nodded. "Naps fix everything. It's science." Apparently naps worked well for werewolves. She would have to try taking more naps, then.

Andrew's smile widened, apthen he turned away to continue eating his hot dog.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

"True. And food. Do you know what you're going to get?" Chris asked her.

Ferris finished his burger and set to slurping on his slush. The jolly rancher pieces inside made it so much better.

(Ugh i might go to sonic for their happy hour, a route 44 is less than $2)

"Probably just a shake, or a cream slush. I'm not all that hungry," Sunny said with a shrug. "Do you know what you're gonna get?"

(Dude. A cherry cream slush sounds amazing right now.)
(Also I have no idea what to write for Andrew. I'm not good at role playing meals, lol.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 07, 2017, 03:53:35 AM
"I'll figure out when I get there," Chris shrugged.

(Do you wanna just have Chris and Sunny get there lol)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 07, 2017, 03:55:20 AM
(Lol yeah, sounds good.)

Sitting at the table after the long walk from the beach was the best thing Sunny had experienced all night.
"My legs are going to kill me tomorrow," she said, turning sideways so she could stretch them out.

Andrew felt his muscles tense suddenly, but wasn't sure why. The only thing that had changed was more people coming to the restaurant. Wait a minute, that meant...one of them was here.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 07, 2017, 05:39:08 AM
"From walking?" Chris laughed and sat down on the other side.

Ferris looked out the window and his eyes went wide. "Hey, it's Chris and Sunny!"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 07, 2017, 05:53:26 AM
"Yeah. I'm a wimp." Sunny laughed and brushed a loose strand of hair off her face.

"You know them?" Andrew asked, sitting up to get a better look at them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 07, 2017, 08:35:40 AM
"Only a little," Chris winked at her before looking at a menu.

"Yeah, i guess we're kind of friends." Ferris told him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 07, 2017, 08:41:56 AM
She laughed and looked over the menu, as well, looking for anything chocolate.

Andrew raised an eyebrow. "Kind of friends?" he repeated, confused.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 07, 2017, 09:22:35 AM
"I kinda just want an ocean water..." Chris said, thinking aloud.

"Yeah. It's like a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship," Ferris shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 07, 2017, 11:23:19 AM
"An ocean water?" Sunny asked, tilting her head slightly to one side.

Andrew nodded. That was a weird way to describe friendship, but he wasn't gonna nag. "You can go say hi to them, if you want. You wouldn't be bothering me."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 07, 2017, 12:27:33 PM
"Yeah, have you ever had one?" Chris asked her. "It's like a tropical drink."

"You can come meet them," Ferris offered as he unbuckled his seat belt.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 07, 2017, 01:11:57 PM
She shook her head. "No, I haven't. It sounds good, though. I'm gonna get...the Oreo cheesecake shake," she decided with a nod.

"Yeah, I'd like that. Sounds like fun." Andrew smiled and waited for Ferris to get out of the car before he followed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 07, 2017, 02:01:52 PM
"Good choice, good choice," Chris grinned at her.

Ferris grinned and hopped out of the car, then walked over to their table. "Fancy seeing you all here," he said.
"Hey man, what's up?" Chris asked, smiling at Ferris.
"Just eating some Sonic. Oh, this is Andrew," Ferris introduced him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 08, 2017, 03:29:26 AM
Sunny smiled at Ferris and Andrew. "Hey, it's nice to meet you."
"You too." Andrew smiled back. "What have you guys been up to?"
"Well, we were at the party earlier, but we headed out not too long ago," Sunny said, choosing her words carefully.

(Okay. I'll be working for a while longer anyway.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 08, 2017, 04:56:54 AM
"Yeah, same," Ferris said to Sunny.
"Did you already eat?" Chris asked and Ferris nodded in response.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 08, 2017, 09:11:35 AM
"Oh. Well, you can still sit and hang out with us if you want," Sunny offered, and briefly glanced over at Chris to see if he minded.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 08, 2017, 09:33:37 AM
"For sure," Chris nodded and shifted so there was more room. Ferris smiled at them and sat down beside Sunny.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 08, 2017, 09:44:29 AM
"Thanks." Andrew smiled and took a seat beside Chris. Something still felt off, but he ignored it for now; there were a lot of stores around, and they could be anywhere. In any case, he wouldn't be able to do his job like this anyway.

Sunny hit the intercom button next to the table and placed her and Chris's orders.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 08, 2017, 09:47:29 AM
(BIIIIHHHHHHHHH)

Chris glanced at Andrew, nodding to him before he reached into his own pocket to pull out his wallet.

"Oreo cheesecake?" Ferris asked Sunny, raising his eyebrows.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 08, 2017, 10:05:00 AM
(What?)

"Oh, I got it," Sunny said to Chris, then turned to Ferris and said, "The peanut butter fudge sounded good, too, but I'm allergic."

"You're missing out," Andrew commented with a sad smile. "Peanut butter is the best. I might get that shake, actually. That does sound good."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 08, 2017, 10:29:08 AM
(Nothing. Nothing at all.)

Chris raised his eyebrows and then smiled at Sunny.
"A shake does sound good...but I already had a slush," Ferris groaned.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 08, 2017, 10:39:05 AM
(Did I make a mistake?)

Sunny raised an eyebrow back, daring him to fight her on this.

"Yeah, I'd pay for it tomorrow," Andrew agreed. Still, he found that wasn't enough to completely deter him from rom getting a shake.

(Soooo tempted to go get a cherry cream slush at lunch tomorrow. So tempted.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 08, 2017, 10:41:02 AM
(Noooo hahaha I just remembered the secret you told me)

Chris held her gaze for a few moments, then held his hands up in defeat and shrugged.

Ferris chuckled and leaned his head back to look at the sky. "The moon's nice tonight," he mumbled.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 08, 2017, 10:59:20 AM
(Oh right. I forgot I told you that secret :P )

"Yeah, it is," Sunny agreed without looking up at it. Granted, she knew it had been the ocean that did weird things to her, not necessarily the moo, but she remembered looking up at it - and she didn't want to take the chance that she'd zone out in the middle of Sonic to go waltz back into the ocean.

"The moon is nice every night," Andrew said, and leaned back to stretch slightly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 08, 2017, 11:04:26 AM
(Lololololol I'm so ready)

"I dunno, sometimes it's a bitch," Chris said, then smiled to make it seem like he was making a joke.
Ferris looked at him and cracked a smile, but it was a bit sympathetic.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 08, 2017, 11:06:46 AM
Andrew furrowed his brows, puzzled for a moment, then said, "Does hiding behind the clouds so you can't see it count?"

Sunny frowned and reached across the table to pat Chris' hand. She really did feel sorry for him, and all the wolves.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 08, 2017, 11:09:12 AM
Chris glanced at Sunny's hand, then met her eyes briefly before he looked at Andrew. "Nah, it shines too bright sometimes, it's like the sun never set." He told him. 
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 08, 2017, 11:22:44 AM
"I haven't figured that part out yet," she admitted with a sheepish grin, "but right now I'm leaning towards pediatric oncology."

"We can go swimming, if you want," Cole offered. He didn't mind relaxing by the water for a bit.

Andrew walked with him, grinning now, as well. Smoking and Sonic were practically made for each other.
"You can swim right?" Mary tried once more to stand up without leaning onto the bannister, "I can't be lugging a wolf in the water."

"No, just never been approached with such... bravado like yourself." Adeline's eyes narrowed but her smile extended out. "And it's... refreshing."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 08, 2017, 11:31:57 AM
"Oh. I dunno, I just think it's pretty. Oh! Have you seen Avatar: The Last Airbender?" Andrew asked, grinning again.

Cole nodded. "Yeah. Yeah, I can swim. No problem there."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 08, 2017, 12:58:26 PM
"Duh," Chris laughed a bit. "Who hasn't?"

"You'd be surprised," Ferris said bitterly, sounding like he'd had experience.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 12:27:02 AM
Sunny glanced over at Ferris, furrowing her brows. "You okay?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 12:48:50 AM
"Yeah, I just can't believe some people have never seen it, you know?" Ferris said.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 03:26:53 AM
"I haven't seen it, actually," Sunny admitted, embarrassed. Luckily, though, the carhop arrived with their drinks, and Sunny handed her a few dollar bills and the exact change.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 03:30:20 AM
Ferris waited until she was done and then stared at Sunny. "We're marathoning it. It'll be bonding time, we'll invite Mary, it'll be great"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 09, 2017, 03:42:21 AM
"Come on then Coley, let's go skinny dipping." Mary held out her arm out to him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 06:21:54 AM
"Yeah, cause Mary would totally watch cartoons with us." Sunny playfully rolled her eyes. "But we might as well. I've been hearing about this show and how great it is forever."

Cole laughed, smiling widely, and looped his arm through hers. "All righty then. Sounds like fun."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 09, 2017, 06:28:48 AM
(I dont know about Mary but I know I would 😙😙)

"I mean... seeing you naked will be treat again." Mary brought themselves closer by pulling his arm to his chest.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 06:46:33 AM
"We can get the whole group! I bet she'd go if the other guys eent," Ferris shrugged and looked at Chris. "Would they be down?"
"The guys? Uh, maybe. I can ask, I guess," he shrugged and Ferris smiled, thinking that was good enough.
"You want to join?" Ferris asked Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 06:51:18 AM
Andrew grinned. "Yeah, definitely. I've been wanting to rewatch it anyway."
"Wait. Are we gonna do the whole show in one day, or just one season?" Sunny asked, taking a sip of her shake.

"You think so?" Cole asked, frowning. He hadn't worked out in a while. But even then, the idea of being naked around Mary again made him nervous.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 06:53:21 AM
"Uh...whichever one happens to happen," Ferris shrugged. He hadn't thought that far ahead yet.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 09, 2017, 07:13:22 AM
"But don't you feel left out, you'll finally see my weird fish legs." Mary patted on his arm and inhaled deeply, although she preferred land the smell of the sea salt drew her to her home. "Good thing we're never far from water."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 07:18:13 AM
"Until everyone passes out," Andrew decided with a nod.
"Well, okay then." Sunny cracked a wry smile, continuing to sip on her shake.

"Yeah, it's convenient, huh?" Cole said, and then something occurred to him. "Is it true that a mermaid's kiss protects you from drowning?"

(Hint hint: in this world, yes, it is true.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 07:21:05 AM
"And then when we wake up, everyone will be thankful for the enlightenment," Ferris nodded.

(OOOOOOO now i have an idea)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 09, 2017, 07:24:38 AM
(Ooh that's pretty cool)
Mary's corner of her mouth twitched into a grin. "Why Cole getting suicidal thoughts? Or do you want to kiss me?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 07:33:58 AM
"Cool, so it's a plan. Awesome." Andrew smiled and leaned back, closing his eyes. The night air felt really good.

"I want to not drown. Drowning isn't the way I plan to go." Cole brushed his hair out of his eyes with his free hand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 07:42:37 AM
Chris nodded and sipped his ocean water. "Oh, did you want to try this?" He asked Sunny.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 09:47:28 AM
"Sure." Sunny nodded and took a sip. She wasn't prepared for how coconut-y it was, having expected more of a citrus flavor, but it was good. "Do you want to try mine?" she asked once she'd given the drink back to him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 09:48:52 AM
 "Oh, I'm good. Lactose intolerant." Chris told her and shrugged with a smile. "Thanks, though," he added quickly.

Ferris found himself yawning and realized the pot was doing its job of making him tired.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 09:52:20 AM
"No problem." Sunny smiled and went back to sipping on her shake.

"Tired?" Andrew asked Ferris with a small smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 09:58:36 AM
Chris glanced to Ferris and Andrew and then yawned as well, triggered by Ferris. The other boy, meanwhile, nodded tiredly in response to Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 11:37:35 AM
"I think I'm probably good to drive now, if you want," Andrew offered.

Sunny smiled softly at Chris. "Are you feeling tired, too?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 11:44:21 AM
"You don't mind?" Ferris asked him and smiled greatfully.

Chris nodded a bit. "Last night and this morning are catching up to me," he said. 
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 11:49:00 AM
Andrew shook his head. "No, not at all. Just tell me where to drop you off at."

"I get that. I'm pretty tired, too." Sunny nodded.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 12:02:38 PM
"Thanks, man," Ferris smiled at him and stood up.

Chris rested his cheek against his hand. "You heading out?" He asked Ferris and Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 01:03:40 PM
"Yeah, we are. Ferris looks like he's about to pass out, and I know I will soon, too." Andrew smiled softly and added, "Been good meeting you, Chris, Sunny."

"Nice to meet you too," Sunny said, smiling back at Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 01:07:51 PM
"Looking forward to the Avatar marathon," Chris said to them and smiled to them both.

"See you," Ferris waved to them both and then handed the keys to Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 09, 2017, 01:19:59 PM
"Me, too." Andrew took the keys from Ferris and headed over to his car, looking over him to make sure he was okay. Andrew had gotten pretty sick overdoing it before, and he wouldn't want that to happen to anyone else.

Sunny smiled as they walked away, fiddling with the straw in her shake.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 09, 2017, 01:33:01 PM
"I'm just tired, but I'm fine," Ferris said when he caught him looking at him.

"What are you thinking?" Chris asked Sunny.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 10, 2017, 02:51:12 AM
"Okay, just checking." Andrew smiled and climbed into his car. Once they were both buckled in, Andrew started the car and asked for Ferris' address.

"Hmm? Oh. Nothing much, really." Too late, Sunny realized she'd been staring out in the direction of the beach again, and she quickly tore her eyes away and focused on the ground.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 10, 2017, 03:37:23 AM
Ferris just plugged it into his phone and plugged the aux cord in and started playing music.

Chris raised his eyebrows but nodded. "You wanna get going soon?" He asked. As he thought about it, he was worried she'd go running off to the ocean again as soon as he left her at her place. "My house is pretty close, so if you want you can crash there."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 10, 2017, 06:11:17 AM
"But you said you could swim." Mary saw the sea on the horizon, and looked up. "But I will if that were to happen."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 10, 2017, 08:22:11 AM
Andrew followed the GPS to Ferris' place, smiling at the jazz music, and pulled the car into the parking lot. "All right, man. Home sweet home."

Sunny looked up at him, smiling softly. "Yeah, that'd be nice. I don't really feel like walking all the way back to campus this late," she laughed.

"Yeah, I can swim. But that doesn't mean I can't drown. Anyone can. Well, except maybe you and Ferris and Sunny," Cole added, frowning slightly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 10, 2017, 08:24:47 AM
Ferris smiled at him and then frowned. "Wait, this is my car. How are you getting back?" He asked.

Chris smiled back at her and stood. "Cool, alright then."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 10, 2017, 09:06:01 AM
"I was just gonna walk. It's not that far," Andrew said with a shrug. And, really, he didn't mind. He figured it would be good for him to clear his head a little.

Sunny smiled back and stood up, determined not to look backward at the ocean.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 10, 2017, 09:15:16 AM
"Oh. Well, I've got a couch or a bed, if you want. Or not. No pressure." Ferris held his hands up and shrugged before he opened the door to get out.

Chris waited for her for a second and then started walking away from the Sonic and the ocean to get to his house.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 10, 2017, 09:30:22 AM
"Would you mind?" Andrew asked, unbuckling his seat belt. Now that Ferris had offered to let him crash there, walking seemed pretty awful.

Sunny made sure to walk right beside him, not letting herself lag behind. Just in case.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 10, 2017, 09:32:53 AM
"No, of course not," Ferris smiled at him.

Chris glanced at her and raised an eyebrow before he walked close beside her. "So, do you have a roommate?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 10, 2017, 09:41:39 AM
Andrew smiled back and climbed out of the car, heading up to the door with him. "So, do you live alone or do you have roommates?" he asked.

"Actually, I don't. I was supposed to, but she left after the first couple of weeks." Sunny chewed her lip as she thought. "Hey, have you noticed anything...weird happening since we...you know, teamed up and all?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 10, 2017, 09:50:38 AM
"I have two roommates, but you probably won't see them," Ferris told him. "One's probably still out and the other is probably sleeping." He said as he opened the door to the building and went toward the elevators.

"What do you mean?" Chris asked, frowning now.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 10, 2017, 10:10:47 AM
"Oh, okay, okay. Do you think they'll mind me being there?" Andrew asked as they stepped into the elevator.

Sunny sighed, thinking. "Like...your, Cole's, and Xaviar's numbers in my phone got changed to 'Wolf Boy,' and then when my roommate left, I found a note in my bed that said - well, uh, I don't even know what it said," she admitted, her cheeks flushing. The note had been written in Hangul, the Korean alphabet, and she couldn't recall ever mentioning her country of origin to any of her friends.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 10, 2017, 10:23:44 AM
"Nah, I've brought guys home before." Ferris told him, then realized what he said. "Not that this is like that, of course," he said quickly, his cheeks going red under his freckles.

"That's...wait, so like someone stole your phone and broke into your dorm?" Chris's eyes widened.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 10, 2017, 10:37:17 AM
"I didn't think it was. I mean, we didn't get a consent form signed and notarized by the Title IX coordinator beforehand," Andrew joked, and pushed his glasses further up his nose.

"Yeah. Yeah, I guess. I don't know. I can't technically prove it," Sunny said. "I still have my phone. And I can't even read the note. I don't know. I don't know what to do."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 10, 2017, 12:04:57 PM
Ferris smiled, relieved. "You're right, you're right," he said and stepped off the elevator when the door opened. He pulled his keys out and opened his apartment door, and, as promised, his roommates were nowhere to be seen.

"This happened how long ago? And has anything happened since?" Chris ran his fingers back through his hair. "Maybe we should try and figure out what that note says."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 10, 2017, 01:09:57 PM
"Nice place," Andrew said as he walked in. "Just let me know where I can set up."

Sunny nodded slowly. "Maybe...yeah, that might be a good idea."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 10, 2017, 01:15:16 PM
"You can go to my room," Ferris said and started leading him back that way.

"I'm glad you're not staying alone tonight," he added. Had anyone else been experiencing this? He hadn't noticed it for himself, but maybe Cole or Xaviar had.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 10, 2017, 01:34:46 PM
(This is the part where y'all feel free to say weird things have happened to your characters.)

"Sweet." Andrew followed him, smiling softly. Yeah, crashing at Ferris' place was a good idea.

"Me, too," Sunny murmured. With all of the craziness that had happened, she was looking forward to not sleeping alone.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 10, 2017, 01:56:18 PM
(Chris'll notice something lol)

Ferris took him to his room and turned the light on. Thankfully, it was pretty clean. "You can take the bed for tonight, I'll just crash on the couch."

Chris glanced at her. "I'm sure we'll get it figured out, whatever's going on. We just have to stick together."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 10, 2017, 02:37:57 PM
(Thanks man.)

"You sure? I can sleep on the couch," Andrew offered.

"I hope you're right." Sunny sighed and wrung her hands together.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 10, 2017, 02:55:19 PM
(Anytime)

"No way, you're the guest. But can I get you anything? Like water or a blanket?" Ferris asked.

"Hey, first thing to know about me is I'm always right," Chris joked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 11, 2017, 10:12:00 AM
"Uh, yeah, I'll take some water. Where do you guys keep your cups?" Andrew asked, heading towards the kitchen.

She laughed at that. "Well, that's good, at least."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 11, 2017, 11:29:41 AM
"In the cabinet to the left of the fridge," Ferris told him and then opened tbe fridge to get out the water pitcher.

"Oh yeah, it comes in handy for lots of stuffs. Exams, you know," he shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 11, 2017, 11:45:17 AM
"Cool, thanks man." Andrew took the water pitcher from Ferris once he'd gotten it out, Andrew handed it back once he was done pouring. "I really appreciate it."

Sunny paused, thinking. "Do you charge people for right answers? That'd be an easy and in-demand business."

Ferris nodded and put it back. "No problem, just let me know if theres anything else."

"No, but I should," Chris said with a few nods.

"Oh, I think I'm good. Thanks." Andrew smiled and drank the water in two gulps, then set it down in the sink.

"Oh, totally. You'd make a lot of money really quickly." Sunny smiled and tucked a loose strand of hair behind her ear.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 11, 2017, 11:33:20 PM
"Okay, no problem," Ferris smiled at him before he went to a closet to grab some extra blankets to sleep on the couch.

"I could pay you back for my ocean water a thousand times over, " Chris grinned as he turned down his street.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 01:49:06 AM
"Night, Ferris." Andrew smiled again, softly, and nodded once before heading to Ferris' bedroom.

"Oh, come on. You don't need to pay me back," Sunny said. "I don't expect anything."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 12, 2017, 01:55:09 AM
Ferris glanced over his shoulder as Andrew left, then grinned to himself as he made up his bed and laid down.

"Sunny, you wound me. I'll pay you back some day. Maybe not with money, but we'll see," he shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 02:02:04 AM
Andrew quickly made himself comfortable and fell asleep.

"If you really want." Sunny shrugged, a small smile tugging at lips. A gentleman. She liked that.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 12, 2017, 02:14:52 AM
Chris looked at her and smiled back, then walked up to his house. He unlocked the door and frowned when he saw someone was already sleeping on the couch. He didn't have a clue who it was, either, but whateveer. He'd sleep on the floor.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 03:20:41 AM
"Do you guys have an air mattress or something I can sleep on?" Sunny whispered, trying not to wake up whoever was on the couch.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 12, 2017, 03:35:33 AM
"What? You're taking my bed," Chris told her and lead her up the stairs to his room.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 03:43:39 AM
Sunny was relieved to hear it, but she still asked, "You sure? I don't want to bother you."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 12, 2017, 04:06:14 AM
"Positive," he assured her. "I'll just take a pillow and a sleeping bag."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 04:10:44 AM
She smiled, and began unbraiding her hair as they walked. "Thanks, Chris. I appreciate it."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 12, 2017, 04:13:19 AM
"No problem. The bathrooms just down the hall to the right if you need it. Um...anything else you want?" He asked, pausing in front of his door.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 04:16:04 AM
"I'll be okay. Thanks," Sunny said again, smiling wider.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 12, 2017, 04:17:45 AM
"Sure thing," he smiled back and opened the door, leading her inside. He grabbed a pillow and his sleeping bag from the closet. "I'll just be downstairs if you need anything, too," he told her as he slipped past to go back out the door.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 04:26:28 AM
"Okay. Night, Chris." Sunny watched him as he walked down the stairs, and gently closed the door behind her once he was out of sight. Then she took off her shoes and bra, then curled up on top of the covers and went to sleep.

(New day?)

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 08:27:29 AM
(A mermaid's kiss protects against drowning. Like, forever. I imagine it would give the recipient the ability to breathe underwater.)
(And that sounds good to me! We can start now!)

The first thing Andrew wondered when he woke up was how he had been able to sleep so late when he was so used to getting up at the crack of dawn every day. The next thing he wondered was where his socks had went - he'd been wearing them the night before when he went to sleep, but must have taken them off at some point during the night.

Sunny rolled over onto her stomach to block her face from the sun, snuggling deeper into the pillow. In her dream, she was floating, nothing holding her back or weighing her down.

Cole hadn't been able to sleep much. Being tipsy and a only slightly high had messed with him, and he'd been laying awake with a migraine most of the night. Especially after he'd come home from skinny dipping in the ocean with Mary. He remembered being able to stay underwater much, much longer than he should have been able to, but then again, all the drugs he'd been intoxicated on had probably messed with his memory.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 12, 2017, 08:53:46 AM
Mary laid on the chair beside Cole during the night they just had. For a split second she had closed her eyes and dozed off yet the thrashing about in the water made her jolt  once more and looked to see if Cole was okay. She had to take him further from shore, away from the prying eyes. The mix of everything they had took was had deadly results, the games they played in the water sent Cole near to the bottom of the ocean floor, as he touched the sea bed she laid a long kiss on his lips, her arms circling him as with all her might dragged him to the top. Inhaling in sharply she leaned forward and pressed her fist to her lips, watching him intently. 
(Ooh i like this power)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 12, 2017, 09:11:12 AM
Ferris had woken up still a little buzzed, but he went into the kitchen to start making some food for himself and Andrew.

Chris had been awake for a while, since sleeping on the floor wasn't exactly ideal. He was sipping some orange juice in the kitchen and debated on bringing Sunny a glass, but he couldn't decide if that'd be weird.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 09:33:47 AM
(I do too, that's why I included it ^-^ )

Andrew eventually found his socks, and tried to smooth the wrinkles out of his clothes the best he could. He wandered into the kitchen and smiled when he saw Ferris. "Hey man."

Cole glanced over at Mary as she woke up, and offered her a small smile. "Morning," he said, running a hand through his hair.

(No Chris do it)

Sunny woke up a few minutes later, though she didn't get out of bed right away. Laying here felt nice.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 12, 2017, 09:37:48 AM
Mary looked up at him, her eyes red from the sleep deprivation and the salt from the sea. "Are you okay?" Her voice light, as she sat on the edge of his bed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 09:43:17 AM
Cole nodded. "Yeah, I'm fine. Why?" he asked. His migraine had weakened into just a headache, and that made talking much easier.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 12, 2017, 09:45:13 AM
Mary gently placed her hands on his shoulders and pushed him back onto the bed, "please don't move so suddenly, it'll only make you feel worse." Her voice full of concern as she now kneeled beside him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 09:51:59 AM
"Mary-" His sentence got cut off as she pushed him down, and he looked up at her with wide, confused eyes. "What's wrong?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 12, 2017, 01:28:45 PM
"Hey! Do you like eggs?" Ferris asked, looking over at him from the stove.

Chris finally talked himself into it, so he poured another glass and went upstairs, knocking on his door.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 01:44:02 PM
"Yeah! Yeah, I do," Andrew said, walking over so Ferris could hear him better.

Sunny sighed, but got up and opened the door. "Hey," she said, and smiled at Chris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 12, 2017, 01:58:50 PM
"Cool, how do you like them? Scrambled, sunny side up? I got it all," Ferris smiled at him. (Taking notes in class tomorrow on my computer is gonna be a real struggle with these nails oh man)

"Hey, sorry if I woke you up," Chris smiled apologetically and then offered the juice to her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 12, 2017, 02:24:50 PM
(Good luck buddy.)

"Scrambled's good. Thanks again for letting me crash here." Andrew leaned against the counter, bracing himself against it with the palms of his hands.

"Oh, no, you're totally fine. Is that for me?" Sunny asked, glancing down at the juice.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 12, 2017, 02:55:14 PM
(Thanks)

"Oh, sure thing," Ferris.smiled and whipped the eggs before pouring them into a pan.

"Yeah, amd there's cereal or toast or eggs if you want. I can make pancakes too," Chris offered.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 12, 2017, 05:03:43 PM
"Cole... please just lie down. Trust me." Mary whispered, with the back of her hand she brushed over his forehead to check his temperature and sighed. "You don't remember anything?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 13, 2017, 12:15:58 AM
Andrew nodded in response and watched Ferris cook the eggs, thinking.

"I remember we talked about going swimming. And I kind of remember walking home, and seeing you underwater." Cole let her push him down, and he closed his eyes when she touched his forehead.

"Oh, thank you. I'll be down soon," Sunny promised. Walking around a house full of guys without a bra on didn't seem like a good idea to her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 13, 2017, 12:19:13 AM
Ferris finished and put them on a plate for him. "Do you want anything with them?"

"Sure," he smiled and stepped back to go back downstairs.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 13, 2017, 01:24:38 AM
"Uh, no, they're good. Thanks. Where do you guys keep the forks?" Andrew asked.

Sunny smiled at him and closed the door so she could put her bra back on. Once that was done, she opened the door and walked downstairs to the kitchen.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 13, 2017, 03:05:46 AM
"Top drawer on the left," he pointed and got started on his own eggs.

"So, what'll it be?" Chris asked her as he opened the fridge to see what they had.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 13, 2017, 03:40:32 AM
"Thanks." Andrew got out two forms, one for him and one for Ferris, and set them both down on the table, along with his plate.

"Is that bacon?" Sunny asked, reaching for a yellow package of meat in the fridge. "Do you mind if I make some?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 13, 2017, 03:49:52 AM
Ferris got his plate and brought over glasses of water for them as well.

"No, go for it," Chris told her. "I might have some of that, too," he said.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 13, 2017, 04:03:36 AM
Andrew smiled gratefully at Ferris and took a sip of the water. His throat was really dry.

"Okay, cool. Do you want me to make some eggs, too?" Sunny asked, setting the bacon down and going back to the fridge for the egg carton.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 13, 2017, 05:33:13 AM
Ferris sat down and sipped his own drink before he started eating.

"Oh, sure. I can make those, how do you like them?" Chris asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 13, 2017, 05:41:07 AM
Sunny set the egg carton down next to the bacon and smiled. "Do you know how to do over medium?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 13, 2017, 05:44:25 AM
"Do I know...Sunny, you are talking to the Iron Chef of breakfast," Chris scoffed at her and turned the stovetop on.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 13, 2017, 06:45:46 AM
She laughed. "Show me how it's done, then, Iron Chef."

"Did you sleep okay?" Andrew asked after a few minutes of silence.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 13, 2017, 06:52:23 AM
"Watch and learn," he winked at her and cracked the egg onto the pan.

"Definitely. The couch  is pretty comfortable," Ferris said. "Did you?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 13, 2017, 08:35:50 AM
Andrew nodded in response and watched Ferris cook the eggs, thinking.

"I remember we talked about going swimming. And I kind of remember walking home, and seeing you underwater." Cole let her push him down, and he closed his eyes when she touched his forehead.

"Oh, thank you. I'll be down soon," Sunny promised. Walking around a house full of guys without a bra on didn't seem like a good idea to her.
Mary remembered something different, more traumatising and daunting. She had cried as she dragged Cole's lifeless body onto the shore, she had pressed her lips hard on his again sobbing hysterically waiting for some sort of response. She was exposed, her confidence as well as her tail was on show for everybody to see as she sobbed for Cole. She blinked several times before smiling pulling away from him. "I need you to lay low on the smokes okay? Promise me?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 13, 2017, 09:25:10 AM
Sunny giggled and stood next to him, watching him cook the egg.

"I usually don't smoke anyway," Cole said. He raised an eyebrow at her. "Mary, seriously. What's this about?"

"Yeah, I did. Your mattress is way more comfortable than mine," Andrew said with a laugh.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 13, 2017, 09:50:34 AM
Mary slipped her hand into his for comfort. "Cole, you drowned last night. Like I promised I gave you a mermaids kiss." She explained her hand then pulling away.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 13, 2017, 09:54:54 AM
(Never made any kind of eggs besides scrambled. I am a liar.)

Chris finished and put it onto a plate, then dramatically presented it to her. "Tada!"

"Feel free to come nap in it whenever," Ferris offered, laughing.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 13, 2017, 10:08:15 AM
(how dare u)

"Woo-hoo!" Sunny grinned, taking the plate from him, and went to go make the bacon.

Drowned? How could he have drowned? Cole didn't remember drowning. He subconsciously placed his fingers over the pulse point in his wrist to check his heartbeat.

Andrew's smile widened and he laughed. "I might take you up on that."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 13, 2017, 10:14:06 AM
"Don't worry this isn't the afterlife, you're still alive." Mary stood up pacing up and down her room. She removed her jacket and sat back down beside him. "But you did drown..."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 13, 2017, 11:27:52 AM
Chris smiled as he watched her go, then started making his own eggs - sunny side up.

"Yeah, for sure. Or just any time you want to come over, feel free." Ferris shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 13, 2017, 11:58:19 AM
"How much bacon do you want?" Sunny asked as she turned the burner on.

"Like, my heart stopped and everything?" Cole asked. Too late, he realized he wasn't sure he wanted to know the answer.

"Cool. Do you like Minecraft?" Andrew asked him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 13, 2017, 12:37:04 PM
"Four pieces," Chris told her.

"I've never really played, but I've always wanted to try," Ferris said
 
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 13, 2017, 04:58:17 PM
"More like your lungs were filled with water." Mary met his gaze and inhaled sharply, she bit her bottom lip. "Do you wanna know something?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 13, 2017, 11:03:20 PM
"Four bacons, coming right up." Sunny grinned and set six pieces of bacon in the frying pan.

Cole closed his eyes and stretched out his back. "What?"

"You should come over to play sometime. And we can play Fallout 4, too!" Andrew became more excited as he talked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 13, 2017, 11:28:15 PM
"You're the first person I've kissed- well in terms of you know... on the verge of death or your case death." Mary replied as she sat beside him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 13, 2017, 11:33:45 PM
Chris grinned and went to top off their glasses with juice when their eggs were done.

"Oh, definitely!" Ferris said, just as excited.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 12:07:11 AM
Sunny smiled at him and went to go sit at the table. "So, where are your roommates this morning? I haven't seen anyone besides us."

"You're the first person that kissed me to bring me back to life," Cole muttered, rolling over on his side. He wanted to go back to sleep.

Andrew grinned, then his smile faltered. "Yeah. But that's just me. I like video games."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 14, 2017, 12:13:43 AM
"I have no clue. The couch stranger disappeared," Chris shrugged as he brought his stuff to the table as well.

"Same, though. I really like the ones that have a good story, though. Like The Last of Us or Until Dawn," Ferris told him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 14, 2017, 12:27:54 AM
"First person to ever kiss too?" Mary asked leaning slightly towards him, with her usual smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 12:37:20 AM
Sunny nodded slowly. "Huh. Okay."

Cole shook his head. "No, not ever. I've had girlfriends before. It's not even the first time a I've kissed someone and not remembered it."

"I've been trying to get The Last of Us for a while," he said, and leaned back in the chair. "I just can't seem to save up enough money, you know? Every time I get close, something comes up and I have to spend it taking care of stuff."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 14, 2017, 12:58:31 AM
"How charming. I hope your girlfriend doesn't mind me kissing you." Mary replied standing back up, pursing her lips.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 01:36:52 AM
"I don't have a girlfriend," Cole corrected, and sighed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 14, 2017, 02:13:56 AM
"They're probably all still sleeping," Chris added and took a fork full of food.

"Relatable," Ferris sighed. "Saving money is hard."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 02:57:27 AM
"Makes sense." Sunny nodded and began tearing her bacon strips apart to mix it in with her eggs.

"It is," Andrew agreed, and then he got carried away with talking about his POS car and how it wouldn't stop breaking down.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 14, 2017, 03:00:16 AM
Chris watched her and raised his eyebrows. "Is that good?" he asked. He'd never really been one to mix food.

Ferris listened while he ate his breakfast, nodding in understanding every so often. He could relate to having a car break down all the time.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 03:14:43 AM
Sunny nodded, shrugging. "I think so. But I'm just weird."

"...But you don't need to hear about all of my car problems," Andrew finished, embarrassed now. He hadn't thought he hated his car that much. Maybe he should try buying a new one instead of constantly looking for The Last of Us.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 14, 2017, 03:16:49 AM
"I don't have a girlfriend," Cole corrected, and sighed.
Mary decided to change the subject as her cheeks reddened. "You don't feel any different?" She asked folding her arms.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 14, 2017, 03:17:24 AM
"No kidding," Chris said and then winked at her so she knew he was teasing. "First the fish thing, now this bacon thing. What am I supposed to do with you?"

"Hey, don't worry about it. I could honestly go for hours about how shitty my car is. But, you know, such is life," Ferris shrugged. "I want to get a Jeep Wrangler some day, a brown one with a soft top and I'll drive it across the country."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 04:26:14 AM
She laughed and shrugged again. "You got me there, man. I don't even know what to do with me."

Cole shook his head. "No. Should I?"

"That'd be awesome. Have you ever been out west?" Andrew asked him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 14, 2017, 04:31:02 AM
"I think so, im not sure. Can I say you were heavy to carry you here." Mary scoffed as she rubbed her eyes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 14, 2017, 05:06:16 AM
Chris smiled at that and then continued eating, wanting to finish his plate.

"Yeah, I used to go all the time with my parents when they went on digs in Arizona and Colorado," Ferris told him. His expression turned nostalgic and almost sad for a moment, but then he shoved more eggs into his mouth.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 05:58:27 AM
Sunny finished eating without saying anything else. She usually wasn't very chatty in the morning.

"But...but I remember walking here," Cole said, confused.

Andrew noticed the change in Ferris' expression, but he didn't comment on it. "Yeah, Arizona's a pretty state. Never been to Colorado, though."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 14, 2017, 06:02:48 AM
Chris downed his orange juice and leaned back, having cleared his entire plate.

"It's nice, if you like mountains," Ferris shrugged. "I prefer the beach, though."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 14, 2017, 06:33:31 AM
"You walked like you were drunk.." Mary retorted and turned to face him again with a mischievous smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 06:50:04 AM
Sunny smiled again as she finished her plate, and went to go wash her dishes in the sink.

"I was drunk," he laughed. "I drank a lot before we left. And then adding pot to that..."

"Yeah, me too. It's more lively here, I think," Andrew agreed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 14, 2017, 07:27:06 AM
Chris got up and followed her, then went and set their plates in the dishwasher.

"Yeah..." Ferris nodded thoughtfully, his mind drifting off to think about the ocean. He wanted to go swimming.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 08:09:54 AM
"Thanks." Sunny smiled and leaned against the counter. "So, do you have any plans for today?"

Andrew didn't say anything in response to Ferris going quiet. He didn't mind the silence.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 14, 2017, 08:33:33 AM
"Adding onto that you literally died, doesn't that bother you? Even scare you?" Mary asked threw her arms to her side and shook her head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 14, 2017, 08:38:46 AM
"Not really. Lounging, catching up on homework," Chris shrugged. "You?"

"Do you want to go to the beach?" Ferris asked him suddenly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

"Not much. I might go swimming," she said, even though it may not have been the best thing to say.

"I don't know what to think about it," Cole said. "It hasn't really hit me yet."

Andrew glanced up, surprised, and nodded. "Yeah, sounds like fun. I just have to run home and change into my swim trunks.

"It'll hit you, at the most inconvenient time and it'll hurt. But I'm the bright side you can come swimming with me without the risk of drowning." Mary shrugged with a smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 09:29:45 AM
"I can?" Cole sat up slightly, even more confused now. "How? I don't have gills or anything."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 14, 2017, 09:35:41 AM
"It's the rules and regs of receiving a mermaids kiss." Mary pressed the palm of her hand onto his chest. "You'll feel it."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 09:41:27 AM
Cole was about to respond, but decided he needed to lay back down instead. Maybe this was all just a crazy dream, and he would wake up back in reality soon.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 14, 2017, 09:56:41 AM
Chris raised his eyebrows. "Will you be okay?" He asked.

Ferris smiled and nodded, but panic settled in when he realized what he'd asked. He did his best to mask it, though.

(We need to get them all to meet up somehow)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 14, 2017, 10:01:14 AM
(Maybe they're all saying in the same place?:p)
Mary decided to slip beside him and looked up at the ceiling. "It's better that you didn't remember, people go crazy remembering in their last moments." She placed her hands on her stomach and closed her eyes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 10:02:50 AM
(We do. I have an idea.)

Sunny nodded. "Yeah, yeah I'll be fine. But...you can come with me, if you want."

"I want to go swimming again," Cole said suddenly. "I need to see it for myself."

"So, what time do you want to head out?" Andrew asked, not having noticed Ferris' distress.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 14, 2017, 10:08:20 AM
(Yayyyy)

Chris nodded. "Yeah, just to be sure," he said and checked the time.

"Huh? Oh, any time. I just need to grab my trunks from upstairs." Ferris stood.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 14, 2017, 11:41:27 AM
"Okay, well, I need to grab my swimsuit, and that's back at my dorm," Sunny said. "Plus, I wanna shower and wash my face." She was still wearing last night's makeup, and it had caked and smeared as she slept.

Andrew nodded slowly. "Okay. Do you wanna just meet up there, or...?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 15, 2017, 12:15:27 AM
Chris glanced her over and then nodded. "Sure, I can take you back to your dorm."

"Oh, yeah, if you want. I can drop you off at your place," Ferris offered.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 15, 2017, 05:57:33 AM
"You're not serious, you nearly died you should be terrified!" Mary turned her head to see him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 15, 2017, 07:40:48 AM
"You don't have to wait up for me, though. I might be a few minutes," Sunny added, glancing up at him.

"But I'm not. I just want to test it," Cole insisted.

Andrew shrugged. "That'd be good, if you don't mind. I just live a few streets over."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 15, 2017, 08:04:39 AM
Mary nodded with great hesitation, she got up and held out her hand. "Breakfast though? Can't swim on an empty stomach."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 15, 2017, 08:18:10 AM
"I thought you weren't supposed to swim full," Cole mumbled, but got up anyway. He didn't take her hand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 15, 2017, 08:21:44 AM
"You sure? I don't mind," Chris shrugged, then stepped out of the kitchen. "I'll be back down in a second," he told her and went up to change into his swim trunks.

"No problem, let me just, um..." Ferris glanced down at his legs. "Shorts, yeah," he said and went to go get them from his room. He was an idiot.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 15, 2017, 08:27:45 AM
Sunny nodded, waiting for him to come down.

"Yeah man, go ahead," Andrew said casually.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 15, 2017, 08:31:33 AM
Chris came back down a minute or so later in some swim shorts and a loose tshirt. He'd also grabbed a towel and slung it over his shoulder. "Ready?" he asked, jingling his keys.

Ferris changed and hopped back down the steps. "Okay, let's go!"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 15, 2017, 08:46:26 AM
"I thought you weren't supposed to swim full," Cole mumbled, but got up anyway. He didn't take her hand.
Mary snorted as he pulled him up gently. "Such a human notion, we can grab something along the way to the beach I guess. There's a secluded part we can go to."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 15, 2017, 09:11:44 AM
Sunny grinned and nodded. "Yeah, for sure!"

Cole narrowed his eyebrows. "You don't have to pull me," he grumbled, and headed for the door. "All right, fine, let's go grab food."

"Sounds good." Andrew grinned and slid his shoes back on.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 15, 2017, 12:30:54 PM
Chris went out to his car and unlocked it, opening the passenger door for Sunny before he went over to the driver's side.

Ferris smiled back and went out the door.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 15, 2017, 11:24:24 PM
Sunny smiled again and climbed into the car. She mostly stared out the window at the passing scenery as he drove, and when they finally reached her dorm, she promised she'd be back soon.

Andrew followed him out to the car, not really thinking about much for once.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 15, 2017, 11:50:41 PM
Chris nodded and just leaned back to listen to his music while he waited.

Ferris started the car and drove toward Andrew's house, following any directions he was given. It only took them a couple minutes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 16, 2017, 12:06:00 AM
Sunny quickly washed the old makeup off her face, and changed into her swimsuit, a polka dotted lavender bikini, and slid a cover up on over it. She was out the door Andrew heading to Chris' car again not even five minutes later.

Once at his house, Andrew changed into his swim trunks and a long-sleeved swim shirt, then grabbed a towel and headed black out to Ferris' car.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 16, 2017, 12:19:07 AM
Chris wondered if the bikini would look okay with Sunny's tail as she came outside, but as she got in the car he decided not to think about it too much and started driving toward the beach.

Ferris was extremely grateful that Andrew was wearing a shirt, and he smiled at him as he got in the car.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 16, 2017, 01:01:48 AM
(Trust the color wheel, Chris.)

Sunny smiled even wider as they neared the beach, and once they were parked, she got out of the car and took her sandals off to walk barefoot on the sand.
"There's an area not too far from here where people won't see us," she said, leading him down the beach.

"Do you like body boarding?" Andrew asked him as he climbed in.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 16, 2017, 02:03:21 AM
(Never. )

"Oh, sure," Chris said and looked over his shoulder before following her.

"I've never really done it," Ferris said and looked at the road.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 16, 2017, 02:16:17 AM
(Color theory is always right. Sort of.)

After a few minutes of walking, they had moved past a cliff that jutted out into the sand, effectively cutting the space off from the rest of the beach.
"People don't usually like to walk on the rocks," Sunny explained after they'd cleared the rock passage. "So it works as a good private swimming spot."

"I can show you how, if you want," Andrew offered. Body boarding was not nearly popular enough in Beaumont; he had decided this a long time ago. Plus, he wasn't sure what else there was to do at the beach.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 16, 2017, 02:41:20 AM
(Sort of.)

"That makes sense," Chris nodded and set his things down before he pulled off his t-shirt to put sunscreen on. "Do mermaids get sunburnt?" He asked her.

"Oh, um, that's okay. I dunno if I'll, um, get in the water," Ferris stammered out with uncertainty.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 16, 2017, 03:02:20 AM
"Not that I've noticed," Sunny answered wit a shrug. She didn't get sunburnt too easily anyway, but she almost never wore sunscreen anymore, and had yet to get burned.

"Oh. Okay." Andrew raised an eyebrow, but didn't say anything else about it. Maybe Ferris didn't know how to swim.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 16, 2017, 03:05:58 AM
"Huh," Chris shrugged and started rubbing it into his arms. "Can you get a regular human sickness?" He asked.

Ferris nervously tapped his fingers on the steering wheel. Why did he think this would be a good idea? Now Andrew would probably think he was a freak...but he supposed it was better than him thinking he was a freak with a tail.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 16, 2017, 03:17:42 AM
Sunny paused for a minute, thinking about that. She'd come down with the flu last winter, but that was before she became a mermaid. She still didn't know exactly when it had happened, but she knew it had been the past spring semester, and her usual seasonal allergies had practically disappeared. When her parents and sibling had gotten food poisoning over the summer, Sunny had been the only one not affected. Even now, with summer beginning to turn to fall, she had yet to see her allergies make a comeback or suffer so much as sinus drainage or a stuffy nose.
"I...don't know, actually," she admitted. "Can you?"

"Do you not know how to swim?" Andrew asked. "Because it's not a big deal if you don't. I just don't want you to be bored."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 16, 2017, 03:24:17 AM
Chris shook his head. "No, not that I know of," he said and put the bottle away.

"Uh...kind of," Ferris shrugged. I can just hold my breath for longer than humanly possible and I spend my afternoons hanging out with fish.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 16, 2017, 03:31:27 AM
"When was the last time you remember being sick?" Sunny asked him, curious now. How had she not realized before that she - and robably everyone in their unlikely alliance - knew so little about their new lots in life?

"Oh, okay. Yeah, if you only kind of know how to swim, it's not a good idea to try going in the ocean." Andrew nodded. For him,it was different; he'd grown up by the beach, and so swimming had always been part of his life.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 16, 2017, 03:38:30 AM
Sunny grinned and nodded. "Yeah, for sure!"

Cole narrowed his eyebrows. "You don't have to pull me," he grumbled, and headed for the door. "All right, fine, let's go grab food."

"Sounds good." Andrew grinned and slid his shoes back on.
"I would like something with cheese, I love cheese." Mary shrugged her jacket back on and stepped into her boots.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 16, 2017, 03:40:31 AM
"Oh, god, I have no idea. When I was really little, probably?" Chris shrugged his shoulders and pushed his hair back off his face. (has no idea how long they've been werewolves)

Ferris just nodded in response. "I'll sunbathe and add onto my collection of freckles."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 16, 2017, 03:55:32 AM
(Ehhhh idk either. We can say it's been a few months. Since spring/summer maybe?)

"Huh. I haven't been sick since before all this." Sunny shrugged, thinking, and looked out to the water. "Ready to go in?"

"We can go get Mexican," Cole suggested. He knew a place with cheap queso.

Andrew chuckled at that. "All right, sounds good."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 16, 2017, 03:57:00 AM
(Spring is always a lovely month :) )
"They're doing it right, cheese on everything is just makes everything better." Mary smacked her lips and a wide smile appeared onto her face.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 16, 2017, 04:49:50 AM
(Hmmmm good good)

 Chris looked back at her and nodded. "Sure am," he smiled

Ferris pulled up to the beach and parked, then shut the car off.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 16, 2017, 04:58:11 AM
"Cool. Would you mind going in before me, actually? Since I want to keep my bottoms intact." Sunny blushed as she said it, but torn underwear, pants, and swimsuit bottoms we're a part of mermaid life. That didn't mean she had the money to constantly replace her clothes, though.

"Okay, cool. My car's out back." Cole led her over to it and opened the passenger door for her before climbing in the driver's seat. He hesitated to start the car, though, closing his eyes and leaning his head back against the seat. He suddenly felt very dizzy and light headed.

Andrew grinned when they arrived and got out of the car, waiting for Ferris before they walked out onto the beach.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 16, 2017, 06:03:13 AM
"Oh, no problem," Chris blinked, then turned and ran out to the water, diving into the wave as it came rolling forward.

Ferris set their stuff down in the sand and set to work applying sunscreen.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 16, 2017, 06:09:20 AM
Sunny waited until she was sure he couldn't see her, and she carefully removed her swim bottoms and dove in after him. It was only seconds before her legs fused together into her tail, and suddenly the salt water didn't sting her eyes, and her lungs felt comfortable holding its breath.

Andrew pulled out his own sunscreen and sprayed it lightly over his exposed skin. Granted, his dark, deep skin didn't tend to burn easily, but he knew a girl in high school that had died of melanoma, and so Andrew had decided to just not put himself in that situation to begin with.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 16, 2017, 02:29:46 PM
Chris looked around amd smiled when he saw her under the water. It was pretty amazing to see.

Ferris layed out his towel and pulled his shirt off to settle down amd lay in the sun.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 17, 2017, 12:16:40 AM
Sunny smiled back at him and waved, then reached for his hand. Where do you want to go? she asked.

Andrew grabbed his boogie board and headed out into the waves.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 17, 2017, 12:30:45 AM
Chris blinked a few times, still trying to get used to that. Does this work both ways? Um, anywhere?

Ferris sat up and watched him, wishing he could go out there. Screw being a mermaid. The powers didn't matter if he couldn't even hang out with a cute boy.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 17, 2017, 12:50:53 AM
Anywhere works for me. And yeah, it goes both ways. Sunny let go of his hand and began swimming out into deeper water, though she slowed down her pace to not leave Chris behind.

(I like how Ferris doesn't even bother changing "maid" to "man", lol.)

After a particularly bad face plant, Andrew decided to go back up onto the beach and hang out with Ferris' some more.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

Mary started to strap into the car when she looked over to him. "You want me to drive instead? You don't look so good." She again reached to feel the temperature of his hands.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 17, 2017, 12:59:19 PM
Chris swam out after her, diving down a few times but he'd always come back up for air.

(He's comfortable enough with himself.)

Ferris smiled at him as he came back. "Too much sand in your face?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 17, 2017, 02:08:12 PM
At one point, Sunny had to resurface to get air, and she swam up with Chris.
"It's pretty cool, huh?" she asked him, grinning widely.

"I'm fine," Cole muttered, narrowing his eyebrows. He just had to wait it out, and he would be fine. At least, that's what he told himself.

"More like too many seashells," Andrew laughed. "That last one hurt."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 17, 2017, 02:39:43 PM
Chris nodded and smiled. "How far out can you go?" He asked.

"Aw, that sucks," Ferris said and looked back out at the water. He really wanted to go out there.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 18, 2017, 01:29:34 AM
"Cole baby let me drive you don't look so good." Mary replied caressing his hand, she truly cared for him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 18, 2017, 04:30:21 AM
"I don't know exactly how far away it is," she began, "but I was out here about a week or so ago, and I found this underwater cave. It's a pretty good distance away from here."

Cole was about to protest that he shouldn't trust the driving skills of a girl who hadn't had legs that long, but he was too nauseous to argue. So he simply nodded and opened the door to get out.

Andrew nodded, and looked out over at the waves with him. "It's a cool view, huh?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 18, 2017, 05:55:48 AM
Mary leaned over and clicked his seat belt in and then went to the driver's seat. She took a long breath and tried to remember how to work the gear shift and turned the engine on. She took a long breath and with a big grin she drove steadily, before speeding off onto the road.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 18, 2017, 12:40:48 PM
Chris nodded, treading water. "I dunno if I can hold my breath that long," he told her. "But you should go find it!"

"Yeah," Ferris said, his voice distant.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 18, 2017, 01:43:01 PM
"It's got access to air," Sunny said. "I mean, we don't have to go there, it's not that big of a deal."

Cole gripped the armrests tight as Mary sped off. Yeah, trusting a girl who'd lived her entire life in the sea to handle an automobile was not his best decision. When had she even learned to drive, anyway? Who loaned Mary their car for her to practice with?

Andrew paused for a minute, looking over at him. "You okay?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 18, 2017, 01:49:55 PM
"Oh! Yeah, then let's go!" Chris said excitedly. Exploring an underwater cave with a mermaid sounded like one of those once in a lifetime things that he probably shouldn't pass up.

"Huh?" Ferris looked at Andrew and shook his head a couple times. "Yeah, I'm fine, sorry."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 18, 2017, 11:29:53 PM
Sunny grinned and took a deep breath before diving back underwater again. So far, Chris didn't seem weirded out by her abilities, which she was glad for, but she wasn't sure how long that was going to last.

Andrew raised an eyebrow at him, but shruggged and decided to drop it. "All right then."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 18, 2017, 11:37:55 PM
Chris was happy the werewolf curse made him stronger, because otherwise he would have been exhausted by now. He still hoped this cave wasn't too terribly far.

"Hey, can I ask you something?" Ferris looked over at Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 18, 2017, 11:41:23 PM
It wasn't long before they finally reached the entrance to the cave. Sunny hesitated before going inside, though, in case Chris wanted to take another breath before they went in.

"Yeah, shoot." Andrew met his gaze, squinting from the bright sunlight.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 19, 2017, 12:48:40 AM
Chris resurfaced and took a breath before he dove back down to the entrance.

"You know that girl from the party, the one that liked all the mythology?" He began, chewing his bottom lip as he studied Andrew's face. "Do you really believein any of that stuff?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 19, 2017, 01:07:12 AM
Sunny smiled at Chris and lead hi through the cave. Luckily, the tune wasn't very long, and they both had access to air in less than thirty seconds. The cave ceiling was high, well above their heads, and a hole in the top allowed natural light inside. Several algae and moss covered rocks jutted out of the water and were practically stacked on top of each other to make seats. From here, Sunny assumed the cave went deeper and longer, but she wasn't sure how much light was able to penetrate down there, and so she was nervous about exploring further.

"Nah I don't." Andrew shook his head. "It's interesting to learn about, but I don't think any of it's true. Do you believe in any of it?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 19, 2017, 02:36:32 AM
"It's been awhile since I've driven..." Mary's voice wary as she turned into the restaurant and parked the car. "But I'm glad your trusting me to drive. Since I'm such a fish out of the water." She pulled the emergency brake and looked at him, "I'm sorry Cole..."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 19, 2017, 02:59:38 AM
Chris resurfaced and brought in a lungful of air, grateful to just tread water for a moment. He saw the rocks and swam over, clambering up onto one and laying down to catch his air. He had his eyes closed, but a few moments later he opened them and actually began looking around the cave. "It's beautiful," he said, slowly sitting up.

Ferris shrugged and watched the waves. "I think there's a lot of things we don't know enough about, so who's to say none of it's true, you know?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 19, 2017, 03:27:46 AM
Sunny nodded and sat herself on top of a flat rock. "I think so, too. I want to bring Ferris here at some point, too, and convince him to go on an adventure."

"Why are you sorry?" Cole asked. His head felt better since he'd given it time to rest, which he was glad for.

Andrew shrugged. "I'd just have to see it for myself, you know?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 19, 2017, 03:30:00 AM
Chris studied her tail as she spoke, nodding in response. "No Mary?" he asked, lifting his eyes back up to hers.

"Yeah, that makes sense," Ferris agreed. He used to be like that, but then he got a tail. "How do you think you'd react to something like that?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 19, 2017, 03:35:38 AM
"I shouldn't have took you to the sea last night, I shouldn't have give you that joint, you shouldn't have died last night." Mary turned off the engine and it her lip, her grip on the wheel helped her prevent tears escaping.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 19, 2017, 03:43:55 AM
"Oh, Mary. Yeah, yeah she can come too," Sunny quickly corrected, blushing. She ran her hands down her scales, as if she were trying to wipe sweat off her palms.

"Mary. Come on. I can make my own decisions, and take responsibility for them." Cole sighed and sat up straighter. "And I'm fine. I'm not dead. Because of you."

"Like what? Bigfoot?" The corners of Andrew's lips turned up into a smile. "I'd probably laugh, actually."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 19, 2017, 03:45:51 AM
Chris slowly grinned. "Really? You sure you don't just want time alone with Ferris?"

"Really?" Ferris blinked. "You wouldn't be freaked out?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 19, 2017, 03:48:33 AM
"It's also my fault." Mary quickly rebutted and took another breath. "You don't understand how terrifying it is to drag out a lifeless body up, ju-just how-why aren't you angry with me?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 19, 2017, 03:53:42 AM
Sunny laughed at that. "I don't think Ferris would appreciate it."

"I...I don't know. I'm just not." Cole shrugged. He wished he had a better answer for her, but there just wasn't one.

"Well, maybe a bit. I don't know. It's hard for me to say. Why are you asking me all of this?" Andrew asked him, furrowing his eyebrows in confusion.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 19, 2017, 03:55:32 AM
Mary sighed as she stuffed the keys in her pocket. "If you're not feeling angry at me then well please let me look after you today until you feel a little better. Please, it's the least I can do."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 19, 2017, 03:56:55 AM
"Oh, why?" Chris frowned a bit. "I'm sure he'd like spending time with you."

"Uh, I dunno. I've just been thinking about it," Ferris shrugged and started playing with some sand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

"I don't know. I just don't get that impression from him," Sunny said with a light shrug. After a moment of silence, she gently splashed Chris using the fluke of her tail.

"I'm not mad at you," Cole repeated, "and I won't make you take care of me."

Andrew paused, nodding thoughtfully. "I bet you could win a fight with Bigfoot."

"Yes I am. I'm looking after you, for all you know you could just pass out going to the toilet. I'm going to look after you, until I know you're fine." Mary stubbornly stated as she opened the door to get out, she then also proceeded to open his door.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 19, 2017, 04:16:55 AM
"Hey!" Chris laughed and reached down with his foot to splash her back.

"Oh, nah, not unless I had a big stick or something," Ferris laughed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 19, 2017, 04:28:07 AM
Sunny laughed as well, splashing him again, this time with her hands. She was really glad Chris wasn't freaking out about her tail or anything.

"Have you taken care of almost dead werewolves before?" Cole asked her as they walked into the restaurant. Once the scent of spices and vegetables hit his nose, he felt better, and a small smile tugged at his lips.

"Even with your bare hands. I bet you could pummel Bigfoot," Andrew insisted, laughing.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 19, 2017, 04:33:29 AM
"I have to say this is my first time. If I'm being honest." Mary replied her hands in her back pockets, her stomach churned for food, and her mouth salivated when she saw people with their food.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 19, 2017, 05:35:23 AM
Chris slid off the rock and back into the water so he could better splash her.

"I have no idea where you've gotten that idea," Ferris laughed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 19, 2017, 06:05:49 AM
She shrieked a little in surprise and slid down under the water. At this point, the water wasn't too deep, and she lowered herself so she was laying on her belly. Sunny looked up at Chris from under the water, smirking at him.

Cole waited for the hostess to seat them before he answered her. "And this is my first time being taken care of, so we're even."

"I actually thought of it while we were at Sonic," Andrew said. "I don't know. There's just something in your face that tells me you could fight Bigfoot and win."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 19, 2017, 07:19:52 AM
The hostess led them to the back of the restaurant which gave them the view of all of Beaumont. Mary sat herself down and looked out with a smile, "I suppose you can't remember ever wolfing out then?" Her fingers skimmed through the menu, her eyes fixated on the outside.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 19, 2017, 07:25:17 AM
Cole shoo his head. "No. I can't remember anything after the first few seconds." Hopefully, she didn't know why, and wouldn't ask. He didn't want to talk about the awful, excruciating pain that came with the transformation.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 19, 2017, 10:14:26 AM
Mary's eyes flickered back to Cole and smiled fondly towards him, she knew from the start what she wanted and pointed it out for the waitress. She then reached out to touch his hand, "when you're underwater just don't squirm let the water seep into your lungs, I hear sometimes it burns when it does but it's like inhaling air once your used to it."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 19, 2017, 12:49:06 PM
"How long does it take to get used to it?" Cole asked her. He'd placed both a drink and food order when the waitress came by, and soon she brought them a platter of chips and a little salsa dish.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 19, 2017, 04:33:59 PM
Chris stared at her and then frowned deeply, at a loss for what to do. He couldn't win if she was down there.

Ferris raised his eyebrows in genuine surprise. "Well...thankyou," he said.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 20, 2017, 03:03:39 AM
Sunny waited a few seconds before swimming back up to the surface and splashing him again, laughing.

Andrew chuckled. "You're welcome."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 20, 2017, 04:40:39 AM
"You're a cheater!" Chris laughed as he tried to block the water with his hands.

"I bet you could fight the Jersey Devil," Ferris shrugged and then smiled.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 20, 2017, 11:56:45 AM
"I am not. I just take advantage of opportunities," Sunny argued, sticking her tongue out at him.

"Oh yeah, I could kick the Jersey Devil's ass," Andrew agreed. Especially on a full moon.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 20, 2017, 03:55:35 PM
"Yeah, aka being a cheater!" Chris said and flicked water at her with a grin before he swam back to the rock.

"I see you've learned that confidence is key," Ferris laughed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 20, 2017, 11:54:52 PM
Sunny laughed again and sat down on one of the rocks next to him, stretching her flukes out.

Andrew grinned. "Well, yeah. People who don't have it don't get anywhere."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 21, 2017, 12:04:33 AM
Chris watched her curiously. "So was it hard to get used to it?" He asked, gesturing to her tail.

Ferris nodded a few times, thinking about that.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 21, 2017, 12:29:54 AM
"Kind of," she said. "I mean, I was terrified the first time it happened, and going swimming the first time was scary, too. But I guess the more I swam with it, the more natural it started to feel, you know?"

Andrew smiled softly and turned to look back at the waves.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 21, 2017, 12:54:08 AM
Chris shrugged and poked at some algae growing on the rock.

Ferris watched Andrew for a moment, then sighed softly and laid back in the sand, covering his eyes with his hands.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 21, 2017, 01:15:23 AM
"How long does it take to get used to it?" Cole asked her. He'd placed both a drink and food order when the waitress came by, and soon she brought them a platter of chips and a little salsa dish.
"Depends, first time is always like you're drowning. It's like you're inviting death into your lungs. Uncomfortable because msot people squirm." Mary shrugged as she took a big bite into her meal, her eyes rolled at the taste of cheese and smiled widely.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 21, 2017, 01:33:24 AM
"What are you thinking about?" Sunny asked him after a bit of comfortable silence.

Cole found that he couldn't smile in response to that. "Oh. Well."

After a while, Andrew decided to go back out and try body boarding again. However, one of the waves was stronger than he'd expected, and he found himself being dragged under the water with it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 21, 2017, 01:36:44 AM
"But that's why I'm here, I'm going to help you through this. If you can manage to wolf out, you can breath underwater." Mary nodded with her mouth full of her meal. She took a long slurp and wiped her mouth with her forearm.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 21, 2017, 01:40:59 AM
Cole's frown deepened and he muttered, "We have napkins for a reason," before he dug into his burrito.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 21, 2017, 02:21:55 AM
(Lmao poor Cole)

"Just how weird life is.." Chris shrugged and looked over at her. "I mean, if we exist, what else is out there?"

Ferris looked up briefly, just in time to see Andrew disappear under the waves. He waited a second, but panic was starting to settle in. He slowly stood up, waited another second, but it didn't seem like he had any other choice but to go in.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 21, 2017, 02:41:18 AM
(He's so grumpy and I love it.)

"I don't think I want to know," Sunny said quietly, running her hands over her scales again. For some reason, the idea of real life vampires scared her the most. If nothing else was a myth, she hoped vampires were.

At som epoint, Andrew had been thrown against the sand, and the blow to his head was throwing him off. He tried to swim towards the surface, not realizing he was actually swimming down.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 21, 2017, 03:05:50 AM
(Lololol)

"I'm gonna find aliens," Chris said, dipping his foot back into the water.

Ferris finally made up his mind and dove into the water on the next wave. Andrew had been pulled pretty far out, but with a powerful kick of his tail he was beside him in no time. He wrapped his arms around the other boy and started pulling them back up to the surface, toward the beach. He didn't have time to worry if anyone would see.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 21, 2017, 03:53:07 AM
"Well, yeah. You and your NASA team are gonna go explore space," Sunny said, like it was the most obvious thing in the world.

Andrew was barely conscious from oxygen deprivation, and so when he was grabbed, he just started kicking and squirming against whatever was holding him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 21, 2017, 03:59:46 AM
Chris looked up at her and then grinned. "Damn right we are."

Ferris held tighter, just trying to get them to shore. He broke the surface amd swam up to the beach, dragging them both onto it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 21, 2017, 04:20:48 AM
"You should totally take pictures with the aliens when you find them." Sunny grinned back, brushing a strand of hair out of her face.

Andrew started coughing the second his head broke the surface, though he was still too out of it to know what was really going on.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 21, 2017, 05:04:42 AM
"Oh, there'll be an alien selfie. I'll send it to you," Chris laughed.

Ferris sighed with relief when he started coughing because at least he was breathing. However, that meant Ferris was in a major predicament. He had no clothes to change into, and that was only if he managed to dry off in time. He couldn't very well just swim and leave Andrew, but he couldn't stay there either.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 21, 2017, 06:50:35 AM
"You'd better," Sunny teased. "I want to be the first person to see a human/alien selfie."

(Yes, Ferris, what are you going to do? :3 )

Andrew began coughing harder, bits of water coming out of his lungs.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 21, 2017, 07:00:10 AM
(Don't judge when it comes to cheesy dishes I'm all up on it."
"Oh have I offended you with my eating habits?" Mary placed her utensils down and grabbed the napkin, opening it up in a dramatic fashion and wiping her mouth with it then placed it on her lap. "Is that better?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 21, 2017, 07:07:12 AM
"Oh, don't worry, you'll be the first one," Chris smiled at her.

Ferris helped him onto his side so he would joke on the water, and mentally still debated. Maybe Andrew would pass out and Ferris could find somewhere to dry off. Or maybe Ferris could just suffer, since there didn't seem to be any other options.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 21, 2017, 07:15:29 AM
Sunny smiled back and scooted off the rock slightly. "Thanks, man. I appreciate it."

"Yeah, it is," Cole said simply. He didn't say anything else as he ate, as he wasn't sure what else to say.

Suddenly, the world went black and Andrew collapsed onto the sand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 21, 2017, 07:48:28 AM
"Sure, any time," he looked down at the water, then slid off the rock back into it. He scratched his elbow a bit, but it didn't hurt so he wasn't worried.

"Shit," Ferris sat up and then pressed his ear to Andrew's chest to listen to his breathing.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 21, 2017, 11:24:46 AM
Sunny frowned when she saw the blood. "You okay?"

Although his heart was still beating, Andrew had stopped breathing.

(Idek I just wanted some drama.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 21, 2017, 02:07:22 PM
"Huh? Oh, I scraped my elbow. It's fine," Chris assured her and washed the blood off in the water.

Ferris bit his lip, then racked his memory for the CPR class he took years ago. He tipped Andrew's head back to open his mouth, plugged his nose, then started trying to get air back into his lungs.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on September 21, 2017, 04:49:10 PM
Mary patted the paper onto her mouth once she was done and placed her plate onto the side. "Well that was replenishing wasn't it?" She asked, she was already fishing in her bag to find her purse.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 22, 2017, 11:48:05 AM
Sunny frowned a bit, but nodded. "Okay. Let me know whenever you want to head back."

Cole nodded, taking one last chip. "Yeah. Mexican food is great."

After a few rescue breaths, Andrew started coughing again, more water spilling out of his mouth, and the three parallel slits now forming on either side of his neck.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 22, 2017, 10:58:28 PM
Chris shrugged and looked around the cave, swimming over to one of the walls. "I bet there's tons of undiscovered stuff in here."

Ferris smiled with relief, but his eyes widened in horror when he saw what was on Andrew's neck. "What the hell?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 22, 2017, 11:10:24 PM
(Don't mind me, just making up magic crap as I go c: )

"Probably." Sunny nodded. "I'm not even totally sure how deep it goes, or how much longer the cave is."

As the water spilled out over the slits, Andrew's head started to clear. Once he could properly breathe and talk, he mumbled, "What? What happened?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 22, 2017, 11:39:28 PM
(ALL THE MAGIC.)

"Weird..." Chris sighed, then started floating on his back.

"Um," Ferris couldn't form a coherent thought, his eyes were locked on Andrew's neck. Those were definitely gills.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 22, 2017, 11:56:23 PM
(JUST START MAKING UP STUFF)

Sunny nodded slowly, and then pushed herself off the rock so she was floating next to him.

Slowly, the gills started to close and almost get reabsorbed into his skin. "Did you pull me out?" Andrew mumbled, eyes fluttering as he tried to open them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 23, 2017, 12:04:28 AM
Chris turned his head just enough to look at her and smiled.

Ferris was nodding, but realized Andrew couldn't see him doing that with his eyes closed. "Yeah, you almost...um, drowned."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 23, 2017, 12:16:13 AM
Sunny smiled back, stretching out her shoulders.

"And you went in after me? Are you trying to get yourself killed?" Andrew turned over onto his stomach and pushed himself up onto his hands and knees, slowly opening his eyes. He could taste salt water all down his throat, and it was gross.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 23, 2017, 02:23:49 AM
"So, you can see underwater too, right?" Chris asked.

"What?" Ferris was confused, but then he remembered he told Andrew he couldn't swim. "Oh..well...I got you out, didn't I?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 23, 2017, 02:52:03 AM
Sunny nodded. "Yeah. Sometimes I think I can actually see better underwater than on land."

"This time, yeah, but there's no reason for both of us to drown." Andrew coughed up a bit more water, the gills flaring out again before flattening. At this point, he only felt irritation at that spot on his neck.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 23, 2017, 02:55:10 AM
"That'd be weird if you needed underwater glasses," Chris laughed a bit as he thought about it.

"Well, just don't do it again," Ferris said, but his eyes were fixated on Andrew's neck. That was freaky. He was just glad Andrew hadn't noticed the tail yet, but he wasn't sure what he'd do when he did.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 23, 2017, 03:24:53 AM
"Yeah, no kidding. I'd be a really nerdy mermaid," Sunny laughed.

"I wasn't trying to -" Andrew began, turning around to face Ferris again, but he cut himself off when he saw his tail. A fish tail. Ferris' legs had flat out disappeared.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 23, 2017, 05:46:45 AM
"Hey, speaking of, you could be like the best marine biologist ever now. You should do it," Chris grinned at her and put himself upright again.

Ferris blinked a few times before registering that Andrew had seen. "Hey, what's wrong?" He asked worriedly, hoping he could play it off.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 23, 2017, 08:56:59 AM
"I could," Sunny agreed, thinking. Given her current GPA and how exclusive the nursing program was, Sunny had considered changing her major anyway. Maybe marine biology was a good option for her.

"Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about!" Andrew snapped, harsher than he'd meant to. "What - where'd your legs go?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 23, 2017, 09:06:27 AM
"But be a nurse first," Chris added.

Ferris winced and drew back slightly. "I think the lack of oxygen is getting to you... you should lay back down."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 23, 2017, 09:19:57 AM
Sunny shrugged. "I have to get accepted into the program first."

"Drowning doesn't produce hallucinations," Andrew responded, but maybe Ferris was right. Maybe he did need to rest.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 23, 2017, 09:22:34 AM
"I'm sure you will," he smiled reassuringly.

Ferris nervously bit his lip and shrugged in response. "Just, um, try?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 24, 2017, 02:17:59 AM
Sunny smiled back, a soft, appreciative smile. "Thanks. I just hope you're right."

"O...kay. Okay." Andrew nodded and pushed himself up onto his feet, walking over to his towel.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 24, 2017, 03:54:06 AM
"You work on getting into the nursing program, I'll work on interning for NASA." Chris promised, then held his pinky up to her.

Ferris breathed out with major relief. He couldn't believe that had worked. But he still had the issue of having no clothes to change into, and Andrew's gills. How could he get rid of those?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 25, 2017, 11:13:06 AM
"All righty then. It's a plan." Sunny looped her pinky around his and smiled.

Andrew laid down on his towel, closing his eyes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 25, 2017, 04:01:13 PM
Chris grinned and squeezed her pinky with his before he let go and looked around. "Should we head out?"
 

Ferris peered over at him nervously, chewing on his lip as he tried to solve the problem to his predicament.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 26, 2017, 12:40:39 AM
"Yeah, sounds good to me." Sunny smiled and brushed her hair off her face again.

(Yeah, I dunno what to do with them now, lol.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 26, 2017, 12:47:10 AM
(We can wait till sunny and chris get back to the beach)

Chris nodded and took as much of a deep breath as he could before he dove under to swim out.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 26, 2017, 03:47:48 AM
(Sounds good.)

Sunny took a deep breath as well, leading Chris back out of the cave. She waited for him to take another breath before they headed back to shore.

(Also, did I mention the met can still talk telepathically underwater? I can't remember.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 26, 2017, 03:55:31 AM
(Oh what. I think you did but i forgot)

Chris was glad when they got back to the beach, all that swimming had been exhausting.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 26, 2017, 04:08:08 AM
(I don't know what info I've shared and what I haven't anymore :P )

Sunny sat far enough from the water to not be splashed by the waves, towel drying herself off. She'd tied her hair up so droplets of water wouldn't drip onto her skin. "Did you have fun?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 27, 2017, 02:38:17 PM
Chris just laid on the sand, breathing heavily. "Yeah, I did," he told her and grinned in her general direction.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 28, 2017, 12:08:44 AM
She winced, smiling sympathetically. "Sorry I wore you out. I know it's a long swim."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 28, 2017, 12:10:03 AM
"I'm good, I'm good," Chris assured her and slowly pushed himself up with his hands.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 28, 2017, 04:44:48 AM
"Well, that's good, then." Sunny smiled again and reached for her swimsuit bottoms. Her tail split back into her legs, and she covered herself with the towel as she slid her bottoms back on.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 28, 2017, 04:52:17 AM
Chris looked away when she put them back on, which made him notice something. "Hey, is that Ferris?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 28, 2017, 05:27:07 AM
"What?" Sunny glanced over in that direction, and sure enough, it was Ferris. The green of his tail was unmistakeable. But it was strange that she hadn't heard him while she was swimming - maybe she just hadn't paid close enough attention. "Ferris!" she yelled, standing up and waving her arm to get his attention.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 28, 2017, 05:44:30 AM
Ferris looked over and his eyes widened, and he quickly started waving for them to come over.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 28, 2017, 05:50:07 AM
Sunny glanced back over at Chris briefly, and started jogging over towards where Ferris lay.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 28, 2017, 06:16:59 AM
Chris got up and followedSunny over to Ferris.
"You've gotta help me. Andrew almost drowned so I jumped in to save him and he saw my tail and also I think he has gills? But I have no clothes!" Ferris spoke animatedly but as quietly as he could so he didn't disturb Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 28, 2017, 07:19:43 AM
Luckily for Ferris, Andrew had dozed off on the beach.

Sunny blinked, trying to process all that. The first priority was getting Ferris dry and covered. "I think I have some board shorts in my bag. Will those work?" she asked him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 29, 2017, 03:14:17 AM
"And if you don't want to go for the chubbies look. I have some shorts," Chris offered and Ferris nodded. "Yeah, I'll take those," he said.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 29, 2017, 03:37:54 AM
"Okay, cool, great. But what do you mean he has gills?" Sunny asked him, her eyes going wide as she glanced over at the other boy.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 29, 2017, 03:42:33 AM
"So, he was drowning, right? So I gave him CPR and then he had gills?" Ferris shrugged. Chris glanced at Sunny, but then ran to his bag to get the shorts for Ferris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 29, 2017, 03:54:19 AM
"That...that is the weirdest thing I have all day. That reminds me," she said, brushing her hair off her face, "Have you noticed any psychic powers or whatever since you've become a mer?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 29, 2017, 03:56:23 AM
"Psychic powers?" Ferris raised an eyebrow. "Uh...no?"
(Ferris doesn't realize his power is attraction. Which I just realized might be fun to play with.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 29, 2017, 08:19:26 AM
(Yessss do it)

"Really? Nothing at all? Not even by accident?" Sunny raised an eyebrow, and crossed her legs as she sat back down next to him. Briefly, she wondered if she should feel awkward, sitting so close to a guy in only a bikini, but she figured Ferris wasn't even looking anyway.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 29, 2017, 08:21:34 AM
"No...? Um, talking to people has been easier, I guess. Does that count?" Ferris looked at her and shrugged.
Chris returned and tossed the short and his towel to Ferris, who started trying to dry himself off.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 29, 2017, 08:48:58 AM
"Uh...no, I don't think so. I don't know." Sunny reached over and lightly laid her fingers on his arm. I mean, when mine showed up, it was obvious. But at least my brother is convinced he was just really drunk that night.

(Okay but what if Sunny can also use her power to persuade people to do stuff, and she doesn't know it yet?)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 29, 2017, 08:51:47 AM
Ferris jumped and then looked at her with wide eyes. "Uh..yeah, no, nothing like that.." he shook his head.

Sunny gave him a wry smile and pulled her hand away. "Yeah, you probably would have known by now."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 29, 2017, 09:41:03 AM
"Yeah," Ferris nodded, then tensed up and covered himself as his legs changed back. He pulled the shorts on with some difficulty, but then allowed himself to relax.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 29, 2017, 09:49:36 AM
Sunny looked away as Ferris got dressed, and turned back once he finished. "So, what should we do with Andrew?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 29, 2017, 11:43:19 AM
"Hope I didn't ruin his life?" Ferris shrugged, but then eyed Sunny. "Wait, so your power lets you communicate through touch?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 29, 2017, 12:54:32 PM
"Yeah. And I can, like, show you my memories and stuff too." Sunny briefly glanced over at Chris, but then turned back to Ferris. "Why, what are you thinking?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 29, 2017, 01:00:12 PM
"Could you like, convince people of stuff?" Ferris tilted his head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 29, 2017, 11:07:20 PM
"I haven't tried to do that." Sunny frowned and furrowed her brows. Truth be told, she hadn't even considered that as a possibility.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 29, 2017, 11:16:24 PM
"Do you think you could?" He tilted his head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 29, 2017, 11:54:36 PM
Sunny but her lower lip and glanced over at Andrew. "Do you want me to try?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 30, 2017, 12:08:47 AM
"If you want to," Ferris shrugged

"I dunno, what if something happens?" Chris frowned at them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 30, 2017, 12:11:32 AM
Sunny' frown deepened. "What other choices do we have? I mean, should we risk him telling everyone about us?" But was that even their decision to make?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 30, 2017, 12:14:43 AM
"Let's just wait for him to wake up, maybe Ferris convinced him," Chris suggested and Ferris looked over at where Andrew was sleeping.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on September 30, 2017, 12:52:21 AM
"Maybe." Sunny nodded slowly, and nervously glanced over at Andrew again. She just hoped he wouldn't tell anyone.

Andrew slowly sat up, looking around. Was he supposed to have fallen asleep after nearly drowning? That might not be good.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on September 30, 2017, 01:18:28 PM
"Hey, you're up!" Ferris said cheerfully when he saw Andrew. If he acted normal, maybe Andrew wouldn't question anything.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 01, 2017, 04:50:51 AM
"Yeah. Yeah, I am." Andrew slowly stood up, more confused than ever now. Why did Ferris have legs again? And when had his friends - whose names he was totally blanking on - gotten there?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 01, 2017, 06:08:00 AM
"How do you feel?" Ferris asked him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 03, 2017, 12:54:09 AM
"Fine, I guess. Um..." Andrew turned to Ferris' friends and frowned. "Will y'all remind me of your names again? I know I learned them, I'm just bad with names."
"I'm Sunny," the other mer said, shooting him a friendly smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 03, 2017, 01:00:03 AM
"Chris," he told him,  smiling ever so slightly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 03, 2017, 02:33:53 AM
"Okay. Um." Andrew sat back down on his towel, trying to think. Trying to somehow make sense of the past few minutes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 03, 2017, 03:08:02 AM
Ferris watched him with some concern. "Are you sure you're Okay?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 03, 2017, 03:10:10 AM
Andrew nodded slowly. "Yeah, I'm fine. I'm just - I'm gonna go home," he suddenly decided, and stood up to pack. "I have homework."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 03, 2017, 03:14:16 AM
"Do you want me to drive you?" Ferris asked, quickly standing.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 03, 2017, 03:26:47 AM
"No, you're fine, you can stay with your friends. I don't live that far away. Thanks, though," Andrew added, and waved once as he headed up the beach. Some time to clear his head would do him good.

Sunny raised an eyebrow. That didn't sound very good.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 03, 2017, 08:30:39 AM
"Oh, um, sure," Ferris sunk back down and nodded to him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 03, 2017, 09:00:04 AM
"Do you think he'll tell anyone?" Sunny asked quietly after Andrew had left and was out of earshot.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 05, 2017, 12:05:02 AM
"I don't know. I don't think so," Ferris shrugged and watched Andrew's disappearing form, feeling immeasurably guilty.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 05, 2017, 01:20:36 AM
(Sunny and Chris explored a cave, Andrew almost drowned, and now he has gills from Ferris giving him CPR.)

Sunny nodded slowly, thinking. Maybe she could use her ability to persuade people. But she didn't know if she should ever try it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 05, 2017, 01:24:43 AM
Chris looked between them with his eyebrow lifted before he just laid down on the sand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 05, 2017, 09:22:24 AM
Sunny sighed and began absently drawing patterns in the sand.

After their bills were paid for, Cole went with Mary back to the car and slid into the passenger seat, figuring she wasn't going to let him drive.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 05, 2017, 09:34:45 AM
Ferris played with the sand, only mildly freaking out that Andrew now hated him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 05, 2017, 09:46:57 AM
(Ferris, stop. No he doesn't.)

"So, what should we do now?" Sunny asked after a bit of silence.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 05, 2017, 09:48:36 AM
(MY SON DOESN'T KNOW.)

Chris looked up and then shrugged. "Nothing. Anything."

Ferris sighed and flopped back. "We should just wallow."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 06, 2017, 12:32:50 AM
"I let a human once know my secret, I let them into my world and I was invited to theirs..." Mary began as she started up the car, she buckled herself in and took a long exhale.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 06, 2017, 04:23:18 AM
(Your son shouldn't jump to conclusions. I mean, did he even stretch before reaching that far?)

Sunny raised an eyebrow at him. "Why would we do that?"

"Oh, really?" Cole raised an eyebrow and glanced over at her. "What happened?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 06, 2017, 06:18:35 AM
(He likes to live his life on the edge.)

"I dunno. Maybe we should try to figure out the gill thing," Ferris looked up at her.

Chris looked between them. "Yeah, any ideas where that came from?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 06, 2017, 06:23:54 AM
Mary shifted the gear and frowned, "he too swam too far, but he wasn't fortunate as you were. He wanted more, as humans always do. More..."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 06, 2017, 02:31:23 PM
"Can you explain what happened again?" Sunny asked Ferris. "I just want to make sure I have all the details right."

"That guy deserves a Darwin Award," Cole muttered, but the story had unsettled him. What if he couldn't really breathe underwater? What if he had just been so drunk, and so high, that he imagined the whole thing?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 07, 2017, 04:29:21 AM
"Ive seen many things in my lifetime that could scar a person, but that never seems to leave my mind." Mary took a long sigh as she started to drive off.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 10, 2017, 03:45:53 AM
"Did you at least lol for the body?" Cole asked. As soon as the question was out, though, he knew he shouldn't have said it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 10, 2017, 03:58:51 AM
"Um, he was out in the water and it looked like he was having trouble so I jumped in. He was like, half conscious when I grabbed him because he was struggling but I pulled him out and gave him CPR. That's when the gills showed up," Ferris explained to Sunny, his leg bouncing nervously.

"Is that...wait, have either of you kissed anyone since becoming mermaids? Merman?" Chris glanced sideways at Ferris and he just shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 10, 2017, 04:04:44 AM
Sunny shook her head. She hadn't dated that much in high school, and so far, she wasn't particularly inclined to now.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 10, 2017, 04:05:32 AM
Mary tilted her head slightly and smiled sideways, a dry laugh came out and again slammed her palm onto the wheel. "He was a heavier body than yours... it would've looked off if I dragged him to shore or...or." Mary's voice shook as she tried to continue. "So I uh took his body to where local fishermen normally fish." She shook her head then looked at him. "You must think of me as a psycho or sociopath of some sorts."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 10, 2017, 04:15:36 AM
Chris nodded slowly, thinking about it. But he couldn't really come up with anything other than kissing probably caused it. "So is that Ferris's power or can you all do that?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 10, 2017, 06:38:45 AM
"I think you need to watch the road," Cole said, eyeing a deer that had started wandering their way. Dumb animals, deer were. They probably deserved to get hit by a car.

"Well, I'd need someone to test it on," Sunny said, hoping they knew she was joking. But if she couldn't, and that was only something Ferris could do, then how had they gotten such different powers? Then again, Mary could bend water, so she figured it couldn't be that weird.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 10, 2017, 06:47:33 AM
Chris eyed Sunny and then shook his head.

Ferris tapped his fingers on his thigh. "What about Mary, then? Maybe she'd know something?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 10, 2017, 06:52:50 AM
Mary nodded and sped up paying attention to the road, she changed gears and sighed st the sign that was nearing the beach. "Not long now, are you sure you want to do this?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 10, 2017, 07:08:56 AM
"Yeah, I'm good." Cole narrowed his eyes, trying to see. There was a small group of people at the beach, and with his werewolf eyesight, he could at least see Chris. "Hey, people we know."

"Maybe," Sunny agreed. She had turned bright red at the look Chris had given her, but luckily, her skin was starting to calm down. "But I don't know if Mary has been a mer any longer than Ferris and me."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 10, 2017, 07:17:38 AM
Mary sharply pulled over to the side when she saw their friends and turned off the engine. "More fun this way, just Donne a favour..." she reached over to touch his hand. "Don't go to far okay?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 10, 2017, 08:50:54 AM
"I won't," Cole promised her, sharply pulling his hand away. He didn't like people touching him, but he wasn't willing to say anything about it. He opened the door and climbed out of the car, heading down to the beach.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 10, 2017, 09:58:51 AM
[that boy is the grumpiest. I love him.]

Chris could hear Cole before he saw him, and that was a bit eerie. He turned his head and stood up, squinting a bit to make sure it actually was him before he waved.

Ferris looked up and raised his eyebrows. "Well, we can at least ask her if she knows anything about it now."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 10, 2017, 10:00:59 AM
Mary locked the door behind them and had already kicked off her shoes. She hurried down to where her friends were with a smile on her face. "Well well fancy seeing everyone here..."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 10, 2017, 10:05:40 AM
Cole waved back at Chris, and went over with Mary to see what was going on.

"Hey guys, how are you?" Sunny asked with a small smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 10, 2017, 10:07:37 AM
Chris sat back down and crossed his legs, leaning back on his hands as he nodded to Mary in greeting.

"Hey," Ferris smiled up at them both, squinting a bit in the sun.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 10, 2017, 01:29:40 PM
"Fine. What are you all up to?" Cole asked, sliding his hands I to his pockets.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 11, 2017, 06:34:05 AM
Mary had greeted them all with flying kisses and sat besides Sunny. "Are we all thinking about a swim? Or have we interrupted a date?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 11, 2017, 06:36:10 AM
"We actually have a question," Sunny said, and glanced over at Ferris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 11, 2017, 06:37:56 AM
"Well, two questions. One, have you kissed anyone since becoming a mermaid. Two, has that maybe happened to cause that grow gills?" Ferris asked her, ticking off his questions on his fingers.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 11, 2017, 06:40:58 AM
"I'm glad you've all been thinking about me." Marry drew her legs to her chest with a grin. Then when she heard from Ferris she froze and looked at Cole for a split second. "Odd question to ask of me..."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 11, 2017, 06:48:00 AM
Cole froze, but went to go sit with them. "Well, Mary kissed me last night. Something about saving me from drowning, or whatever."

"But do you have gills?" Sunny pressed, and only got a shrug in response from Cole.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 11, 2017, 06:49:48 AM
"So you knew that would save him?" Ferris asked, his brows furrowing as he looked at Mary. "So it works for all of us?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 11, 2017, 07:22:37 AM
Mary levelled her hand and shrugged herself. "Mostly no, you have to perform the kiss as soon as." She replied burying her feet in the sand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 11, 2017, 07:27:13 AM
"What do you mean?" Ferris frowned.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 11, 2017, 07:30:24 AM
"I didn't know it would work until I kissed Cole last night. I'm still sceptical about it myself if it works. That's why we're here..." Mary replied her toes curling, feeling all to uncomfortable about the situation.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 11, 2017, 07:31:31 AM
"How did you know about it before hand?" Chris piped up, his eyes narrowing a bit at her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 11, 2017, 07:35:49 AM
Mary felt this surge of anger rising in her chest but she stared down at the sand and churckled nervously, "every mer has heard about the myths... surely..."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 11, 2017, 02:53:02 PM
Sunny shook her head. "No, I haven't heard them. I never was even interested in mer until I became one."

Cole shifted nervously. He wasn't sure what to say right then, and didn't want to risk it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 12, 2017, 02:03:24 AM
"Well let's put theory into practise." Mary cleared her throat and tied her hair back. "Cole are you sure you're okay with this?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 12, 2017, 04:55:22 AM
"Yeah, no, I don't know hardly anything about mer," Ferris shrugged his shoulders and then looked at Cole with his head tilted, looking a bit concerned.

"Wait wait wait wait, how are you testing this? Are you just throwing him into the water? What if...what if like the werewolf part fucks with it?" Chris spoke up, his eyes widened.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 12, 2017, 06:39:07 AM
"I can swim," Cole said, only a little defensive. "And I'm sober today. So if I can't do it, then I'll just go back to the shore."

"Maybe one of us should go too, just in case," Sunny suggested, looking over at Ferris. She wouldn't know what to do if Cole died before they could figure out how to break the werewolf curse. Of course, they hadn't made any progress so far, but that only strengthened her resolve.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 12, 2017, 06:51:17 AM
"Chris has a fair point. Remember that scene in Harry Potter when Harry eats the gillyweed and then like practically dies before he grows the gills? What if it's like that?" Ferris asked, then nodded to Sunny. "Yeah, one of us can go in with him."

"Hey man, never said you couldn't, I'm just a bit worried is all," Chris held a hand up and shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 12, 2017, 07:23:25 AM
"I'm going with him, he's my responsibility." Mary chimed in as she stood. "You guys can come in or not but I'm going with him." She faced the ocean and inhaled the salt, she felt nervous for him she felt the sweat coming from her hands.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 12, 2017, 09:31:06 AM
Cole shrugged. "Well, if you think I need to be babysat so badly, then sure, come on in." He really was trying not to be annoyed at everything and everyone today, but it was bad enough that Mary had decided she was practically his mother.

Sunny sighed and looked out at the ocean. She didn't want Cole to drown, but that didn't mean she particularly liked him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 12, 2017, 09:45:10 AM
Ferris made a mildly frustrated noise in his throat and looked at the water, but then just shook his head. "You just go then, Mary. Let's hope he doesn't go all Harry Potter."

Chris deflated a bit and just shrugged 
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 13, 2017, 04:56:53 AM
Mary nodded as she looked back at her friends, "what if he passes out or something worse? I need someone to help me drag his body." She was already starting to remove her clothes once more.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 13, 2017, 01:45:56 PM
 Cole frowned and turned away, giving Mary some privacy and some time to collect himself - so hopefully, the others couldn't see the sadness and frustration with himself more than likely showing in his eyes.

Sunny frowned pursing her lips, and slowly slid her bottoms off from underneath her cover up. "I can go with you, Mary. It makes sense for me to." After all, if Cole needed to hear something while underwater, she was the only one who could pass it to him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 13, 2017, 02:19:08 PM
"We'll uh, hang here," Ferris said and Chris nodded in agreement.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 14, 2017, 12:12:41 AM
Mary nodded to Sunny, goosebumps appeared on her skin the cold breeze as well as the sea splashing onto her ankles made her shiver. She had stripped down to her black lace underwear, feeling all too exposed however she approached Cole tapping his shoulder. "Ready?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 14, 2017, 04:26:13 AM
"Hmm? Yeah, I'm good." Cole nodded and walked into the waves. The water felt pretty warm today.

Sunny folded her swim bottoms and cover up, and then dove into the water.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 17, 2017, 12:20:41 AM
Mary looked behind her and looked at Ferris and Chris and waved back at them before following Sunny into the water. After moments inhaling the water into her lungs, she dove back up to see where Cole was.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 17, 2017, 03:37:14 AM
Cole still hadn't gone completely underwater yet, but he definitely could feel his neck tingling. He wasn't sure if that was a good thing or not.

Sunny ducked down so she wasn't getting tossed around by the surf. Is Cole okay? she asked Mary.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 17, 2017, 06:40:40 AM
Mary felt Sunny's voice and dove back down and responded I hope he will... she looked at her with concern and shrugged slightly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 17, 2017, 07:35:49 AM
Cole took a deep breath and ducked under the water. The tingling in his neck turned to full on stinging, and he instinctively gasped. Salt water slid down his throat, and Cole began coughing and sputtering. Once all the water was out of his lungs, though, he realized that he felt fine. Gently, he touched his neck, and felt something pulsing with every breath he took.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 17, 2017, 07:40:32 AM
Mary watched him from afar then looked to Sunny reaching for her arm. Oh goodness... it actually... tell the others! still in disbelief she started to swim towards him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 17, 2017, 07:59:40 AM
Cole stared over at Mary, bewildered. He had gills. He was breathing underwater. He thought he might pass out.

Sunny swam closer to the shore and surfaced. "It worked!" she hollered to Chris and Ferris. "It freaking worked!"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 17, 2017, 09:57:14 AM
"He's...he can breathe underwater?!" Ferris scrambled up from where he was to look at Sunny, his eyes wide. Chris still looked a bit apprehensive, though.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 21, 2017, 08:22:55 AM
Mary approached him with amazement and a gleeful smile on her face, her fingertips reached to his gills and gasped and retracted her hand. With a gentle gesture with her hand she drew a bubble with her wrist and blew him a bubble that travelled towards him that popped when it touched his nose.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 22, 2017, 08:59:18 AM
Cole scrunched his nose when the bubble touched him, but he broke out into a smile, too. He could even see well underwater, which was shocked him just as much. It was like he hadn't left land at all.

Sunny nodded. "He totally can! The gills are on his neck, I saw them! They're there, clear as day!"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 22, 2017, 09:24:14 AM
Ferris grinned and shot Sunny a thumbs up. "That's great!"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 22, 2017, 09:26:34 AM
Mary started to giggle underwater and felt relief go through her body. She swam around him, her tail shimmered different colours.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 23, 2017, 03:51:49 PM
Cole spun around to watch her, mesmerized by her tail. He couldn't remember exactly what it had looked like, but he knew it was just as beautiful under the sun as it had been in the moonlight.

Sunny shot him a thumbs up in return, and ducked back underwater.

(Or just skip altogether, lol. I'm tired of waiting.)

After a shower and some time in the studio to clear his head, Andrew sat at an outdoor table near the campus library and pulled out his phone, staring at the new phone number that had been programmed into his contacts list. The number didn't look the least bit familiar, and there was no name given, just the word "Partner". For a second, he debated, wondering what to do, but he finally pressed the call button and held the phone up to his ear.

Clemence pulled her phone out as it started buzzing and frowned at the unrecognizable number, but it was saved in her phone. She glanced around before she swiped the green call button to answer it. "Hello?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 24, 2017, 05:22:33 AM
"Um...hey." Andrew winced at how awkward that was, and leaned back against the table. "This is gonna sound really weird, but your number is saved in my phone, and so I was wondering if we met, like at a party or something. My name's Andrew Lanier."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 24, 2017, 05:26:40 AM
"Andrew?" Clemence frowned, not recognizing the name. "Um, no, I don't think we've met, but my name is Clemence Bourdieu."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 24, 2017, 05:36:08 AM
Clemence. Andrew thought hard, trying to put a face to that name, but he couldn't think of one. If he saw her, though, he would know if they'd met or not. "Oh, okay. Uh...have you eaten lunch yet?" he asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 24, 2017, 05:41:32 AM
"Um, no...have you?" Clemence paused as she walked, then glanced around again. "Want to get something? Maybe we can figure this out."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 24, 2017, 05:46:37 AM
"Yeah, sounds good. On or off campus?" Andrew asked, stretching out his legs.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 24, 2017, 05:49:16 AM
"Hm...do you like Chipotle?" Clemence asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 24, 2017, 05:53:07 AM
"Yeah, definitely. I'll meet you there." Andrew smiled as he hung up, and headed over to the restaurant. The line wound halfway around the store, but he had been expecting that.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 24, 2017, 08:06:37 AM
(guys just skip when you need to XD don't need to wait)
Mary approached him again and blew a bubble and brought it over his head, letting him feel like he was back on shore. "I bet you're happy you're still alive."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 24, 2017, 08:37:36 AM
Clemence headed over to the Chipotle and groaned inwardly when she saw the line. She quickly scanned the crowd and pulled her phone out to text Andrew. Where should I find you?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 24, 2017, 08:40:57 AM
In line. I'm wearing a gray shirt and jeans. Andrew sent the message and looked around again, keeping an eye out for anyone that might be looking for him.

(Wait. Did we actually skip then? I'm confused.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 24, 2017, 08:49:40 AM
(Oh I assumed we skipped everyone)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 24, 2017, 08:51:47 AM
Clemence read the text and looked up, squinting at the line as she looked for someone with a matching description. "Andrew?" She asked, walking up to a guy toward the back wearing the right clothes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 24, 2017, 10:14:08 AM
(I thought we only skipped with Andrew and Clemence. Idk anymore. I need to go home and sleep.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 24, 2017, 10:30:14 AM
(Whoops I'll remodify ir then :) go sleep blue! It's me not reading it properly xD )
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 26, 2017, 12:33:14 AM
Cole stared at the bubble in awe, and finally nodded.

Andrew smiled. "Hey. Clemence, right?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 26, 2017, 01:10:59 AM
Clemence smiled with a bit of relief and nodded, but she still didn't recognize this guy. She took her place in line next to him and glanced up at the row of people. "Somehow in my head I didn't think it'd be this busy."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 26, 2017, 03:58:02 AM
"Yeah, I never think it'll be busy. And I'm always wrong," Andrew said with a shrug. He still had no clue who this girl was, but he definitely didn't mind her number being programmed into his phone. No, that didn't bother him at all now.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 26, 2017, 03:59:30 AM
"So...any thoughts on how we got each other's numbers?" Clemence asked, shifting her eyes to Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 26, 2017, 04:06:49 AM
Andrew thought back to the party, although he was pretty sure they hadn't bumped into each other. "What are you majoring in? Maybe we have mutual friends that set it up."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 26, 2017, 04:08:46 AM
"Graphic design," Clemence told him, tapping her fingers against her hip. "Wait, set it up like how? Like as a joke?" She raised an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 26, 2017, 04:23:34 AM
"No, maybe like they thought...I don't know." That only sounded more stupid the longer he thought about it. "What was my name set as in your phone?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 26, 2017, 04:32:41 AM
Clemence stared at him, her gaze hard as she tried to decipher what she meant before she pulled her phone out and checked the call log. "Uh, under 'Partner'. I mean, I get we're in the south but this isn't Texas," she rolled her eyes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 26, 2017, 05:24:19 AM
Cole stared at the bubble in awe, and finally nodded.

Andrew smiled. "Hey. Clemence, right?"
Mary pointed up and started to swim back to shore to be back with the others.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 26, 2017, 08:12:53 AM
Andrew nodded slowly. "Huh. That's what you're saved under on mine, too." He glanced up, noticing they were getting close to the counter to order. At least the line was going fast today. "You can go first," he offered.

Cole swam towards the shore, following the light reflecting off Sunny and Mary's tails.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 26, 2017, 08:48:34 AM
"Oh, thanks," Clemence said absently as she slid in front of him in the line. "I just don't know when anyone could have gotten hold of my phone..." she said, halfway to herself.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 26, 2017, 10:56:56 AM
Mary with a large grin quickly dried herself and slipped back into her shirt. "Gills and all, it's... it's not a myth..." she said in disbelief.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 27, 2017, 01:29:10 PM
Sunny slid her cover up on and waited for her tail to turn back into her legs. "It's crazy. It's just...unbelievable."

"Yeah, how do you think I feel?" Cole said, and managed a half smile. He was a werewolf. With gills. In what world was this supposed to be possible?

Andrew nodded, shrugging. He wasn't sure, either, especially because his phone could only be unlocked with his fingerprint.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 27, 2017, 02:52:10 PM
Chris smiled widely and turned his gaze on Cole. "So, what's this make you now? A werefish?"

Clemence turned and eyed him. Partner seemed oddly specific, like it was meant for something.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 27, 2017, 08:50:45 PM
"Head of a wolf body of a fish... that's hot man." Mary replied with a click of her tongue and tied her hair back.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 28, 2017, 04:17:20 AM
Cole smirked and nodded. "Yeah, I'd get all the ladies."

Andrew noticed her looking at him and smiled lightly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 28, 2017, 05:03:23 AM
Chris just rolled his eyes but laughed.

Ferris shifted his seat. He was glad the gills were real and functioning, but that didn't help him really help Andrew.

Clemence tensed up a bit and didn't return the smile. "So what exactly do you do?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 28, 2017, 07:31:27 AM
Mary sat beside Ferris and shuffled closer to him. "We have more than one power if we think about it."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 28, 2017, 11:44:28 AM
"I don't think I have another power," Ferris said with a shrug.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 29, 2017, 02:22:08 AM
"Maybe you just haven't found it yet. I mean, why would Mary get two powers, but you only have one?" Sunny pointed out. She wasn't totally sure if she was able to give people gills from kissing them, but she wasn't willing to test it out.

Cole wrapped his towel around his shoulders and sat down beside Chris. In a way, he was envious of the mer. They get turned into supernatural creatures and get cool powers. He and Chris get turned into supernatural creatures and get cursed.

"Right now? I, uh, I'm double majoring in art and psychology. But I just work at Jimmy John's," Andrew said.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 29, 2017, 04:08:52 AM
"I bet you could probably do the gill thing too," Ferris said to Sunny and frowned at the sand. He needed to talk to Andrew so he didn't freak out when he took a shower or something.

"So what'd it feel like?" Chris asked, turning toward Cole.

"That's it?" Clemence asked. She knew it sounded judgemental, but if that's all this guy did then it didn't make sense.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 29, 2017, 04:42:44 AM
"I still wouldn't risk it, it has to be precise not one minute longer or earlier. I say, Cole was lucky." Mary replied wiping the sand from her hands to her shorts.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 29, 2017, 08:37:08 AM
Sunny nodded slowly, frowning. That didn't help at all with breaking the news to Andrew.

"At first it just stung. Real bad, like a bunch of bee stings. But then the gills just opened up," Cole said to Chris. "I could feel it when they did. It was weird. And after that I could breathe normally."

Andrew shifted his weight over to his other foot. Those girls had told him there was another hunter, and maybe this was her. "Do you...how much do you know about, like, myths and cryptids and stuff?" he asked her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 29, 2017, 08:43:00 AM
"Never asked why you wanted to know the answer to that question." Mary looked up at Sunny, she had dug her feet deep into the sand as she hugged her knees.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 30, 2017, 02:10:53 PM
Ferris chewed his bottom lip, growing nervous the more he thought about it. "So what am I supposed to say to Andrew then? Hey, sorry, you almost died but I'm part fish so now you can't drown! That'll go well."

Chris unintentionally touched his neck and winced. "I dunno if I could get used to that."

Clemence raised her eyebrows, but she was only surprised by how unsurprised she was at the question. "Some," she answered. "Is that..are you interested in that sort of thing?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 30, 2017, 02:45:08 PM
"What question?" Sunny asked Mary. Then, to Ferris, she said, "I could try to convince him it didn't happen, or something, if you want. I don't know if my ability even works that way, but I can try."

"I don't know if I'll get used to it, either." Cole shrugged and frowned, looking down at the sand. Were the gills going to appear every time he got wet now? That was going to suck.

Andrew nodded slowly. "Yeah. It's been a pretty recent hobby, but yeah, some." He thought back to that night before school had let out for summer break, and the high school girl who'd called herself Lady Snake. Apparently she was the youngest in the coven, and she had only just learned enough to pass the hunter's curse to him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 30, 2017, 02:50:18 PM
"That might be even worse, because then he'd freak out when the gills appeared. I'd rather just...I dunno. Maybe I can like gloss over the fish part and go for the gills part." Ferris mused, laying down in the sand. He covered his eyes with his arm.

"It's a neat party trick, though," Chris added with a small smile. He still wasn't sure what they'd gotten themselves into with these mermaids, but it was getting weirder and weirder. As if being a werewolf wasn't weird enough.

"Gotcha," Clemence nodded and didn't offer up any more information as it was her turn to order. She got a quesadilla with guac, and waited by the counter after she paid for it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 31, 2017, 03:43:28 AM
Sunny chewed her lip. "What if...what if you just told him the truth?"

Cole chuckled. "Yeah, it is." He paused for a beat, then added, "But after what happened last night, I wouldn't be surprised if you start growing them, too," he said, giving a pointed glance in Sunny's direction.

Andrew ordered his food, a burrito and chips, and paid for it. "Where do you want to sit?" he asked as he went to grab some napkins.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 31, 2017, 03:55:46 AM
"The truth?" Ferris sat back up immediately. "No, no way. He will never, ever speak to me again and he'll probably call to send me to an asylum! It'll be American Horror Story, I'll get abducted by aliens and possessed by the devil, Sunny!"

Chris coughed into his hand to hide the redness creeping into his face. "Nah, nothing happened, man. She slept in my bed and I stayed on the couch."

"Um..." Clemence looked around, and there was a table toward the back just barely big enough for two, but it was open. "Over there," she said, nodding to it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 31, 2017, 05:15:06 AM
"Damn Sunny you slept with him wasn't expecting that..." Mary's eyes widened and clapped her hands. "As far as Andrew's concern, tell him he'll understand it's not that big of a deal..."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 31, 2017, 07:00:07 AM
(Lol, Ferris cracks me up XD)

Sunny was so taken aback by Ferris' outburst, and then by Mary's accusation of her having slept with Chris, that the only thing she could think of to say was, "I don't even think Chris exists, and I didn't sleep with aliens!"

"Okay, sure, sure. But I saw you two walk out of the bathroom together at the party." Cole shrugged and held his hands up. "Just an observation."

Andrew nodded and headed over to it, glancing around the restaurant.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 31, 2017, 09:07:01 AM
"Bathroom... that's not like you to go in with a boy and leave with a boy." Mary winked nudging Sunny.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 31, 2017, 10:03:12 AM
Ferris started laughing at Sunny's distraught, mostly because  what she said was so funny.

"Oh sure, and what did you and Mary get up to then?" Chris raised an eyebrow. "At least I was helping Sunny!"

Clemence sat down and dipped a slice of her quesadilla into her queso before she took a bite, then she focused on Andrew while she chewed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 31, 2017, 10:54:39 AM
"I just got wet, that's all!" Sunny insisted, but turned even redder when she realized how wrong that sounded in the current context.

Cole burst into laughter, leaning back slightly. "Oh, really, that's all, huh?" he said between laughs.

Andrew had been staring out the window, zoning out, but he looked back at Clemence when he felt eyes on him. "This is going to sound weird," he said, "but do you know a girl...I think she's still in high school, but she says her name is Lady Snake. I don't know what her real name is."

(You can go with that if you want, or if you want to make up a new witch, that's fine too. Doesn't matter to me, lol.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on October 31, 2017, 11:01:29 AM
"If you insist that's all that happened Sunny but you are remarkable..." Mary snickered nudging her once more.

(Ooh witches!)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 31, 2017, 01:20:06 PM
Ferris laughed even more as Chris groaned and hid his face in his hands. "With water, you animals!"

"How do you know her?" Clemence perked up immediately and raised her eyebrows.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on October 31, 2017, 01:29:50 PM
(Yes. Yes, witches. They are v v important to the plot.)

Sunny buried her face in her hands. Taking the risk of making this even worse by saying something else wasn't worth it.

"Hey, that's only a fair insult to me," Cole said to Chris, nudging him lightly.

"I met her before summer break. She told me...she said something about there being a..." Andrew trailed off and looked down at his food, knowing how ridiculous he sounded. "A, um, werewolf problem in town."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on October 31, 2017, 02:02:33 PM
"Nuh uh, fish are animals," Chris argued.

"I resent that," Ferris said between his laughs.

"Werewolves," Clemence deadpanned. "I uh...might know something about that."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on November 01, 2017, 02:32:40 AM
"I take an offence to that Ferris." Mary feigned annoyance by placing her hand on her chest.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on November 02, 2017, 12:15:05 AM
"You guys are the worst," Sunny mumbled from under her hands. Was it really so hard to believe she and Chris hadn't slept together?

"True," Cole said to both Chris and Sunny. Fish were indeed animals, and they definitely were the worst.

"Oh, yeah?" Andrew's eyes widened ever so slightly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 02, 2017, 02:34:28 AM
Chris just flipped him off while Ferris chuckled, playing with handfuls of sand again.

"Yeah," Clemence nodded but took a bite of her quesadilla rather than offer more info.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on November 02, 2017, 04:43:55 AM
Mary shook her hand and placed her sandy hand on Sunny's back, "I believe you, you wouldn't do something like that."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on November 04, 2017, 08:02:28 AM
Sunny rolled her eyes, but didn't say anything else.

"So...what now?" Cole asked after some minutes of silence.

Andrew nodded slowly. "All right then."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 05, 2017, 01:25:16 AM
"Anyone down for food?" Chris asked, looking around the group. Ferris shrugged in response, since he was always down for food.

"What do you know about them?" Clemence asked him after a moment.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on November 05, 2017, 05:02:58 AM
"Sounds good, any near here?" Mary asked brushing away the sand from her clothes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on November 06, 2017, 05:37:44 AM
"There's a Dewey's Pizza," Cole suggested, shifting his weight slightly.

"They've been here for a while," Andrew began. "And so far, they haven't killed anyone, or any big animals."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 07, 2017, 04:07:05 AM
"Hella," Chris grinned as he stood up quickly.

"You ever killed one?" Clemence raised an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on November 09, 2017, 02:26:54 AM
"I love Dewey's!" Sunny added as she stood up. She brushed sand off the backs of her legs and picked up her sandals.

Andrew shook his head, frowning. "Have you?" he asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 09, 2017, 03:06:51 AM
"I'm gonna need some nice veggie pizza," Ferris said as he stood up.

"No," Clemence said and shook her head. "I think this is what partner is supposed to mean."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on November 09, 2017, 08:14:19 AM
"Pizza all I want is a mountain of cheese on top of it." Mary grabbed her keys from her pocket and tossed them to Cole.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on November 21, 2017, 01:13:33 AM
Cole caught the keys and headed over to his car.

"Y'all are crazy if you haven't had the buffalo chicken pizza," Sunny commented as she walked with Chris to his car.

Andrew nodded slowly. "Yeah, yeah, I think you're right."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on November 21, 2017, 01:25:39 AM
"You're cool driving now? Not feeling woozy still?" Mary asked opening the door on her side.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 21, 2017, 06:05:17 AM
Ferris grabbed his bag and headed to his own car with his keys. "Meet y'all there!" He said as he got in. He pulled his phone out and then quickly texted Andrew before he lost his nerve. Hey, heading to get some pizza with the group if you want to come. Hope you're feeling better.

"Yeah, that sounds pretty bomb," Chris said with a grin at Sunny.

"So...what do we do? Just go on hunts together?" Clemence rested her cheek against her hand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on November 23, 2017, 06:47:28 AM
Cole nodded to Mary and resisted the urge to smile at her. "Yeah, I can drive. I feel fine."

Sunny grinned back and waited for Chris to unlock the doors before she climbed inside.

Andrew sighed. "Now that, I'm not sure of." He paused when he felt his phone vibrate, and decided to reply to Ferris' text in a few minutes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on November 23, 2017, 08:14:50 AM
(I do love Steve, he makes a good mum)


"Alright, I trust that you won't cause a collision..." Mary smirked as she slid into the car.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on November 23, 2017, 08:45:07 AM
(Best father of five)

Ferris stared at his phone, waiting for a minute, but then he shrugged and set it aside to drive off.

Chris got into the driver's side and turned the car on. He rolled the windows down and turned the radio up as he left the parking lot.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on November 23, 2017, 08:55:21 AM
"I haven't yet," Cole said. He waited until she was situated in the car before he drove off to the restaurant.

Sunny grinned at the music, and turned towards the window so she could feel the wind on her face.

Hey, I'm getting lunch with a friend today. How about another time? Andrew sent the message to Ferris and kept eating, waiting to see if Clemence had any ideas.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on November 23, 2017, 09:02:24 AM
“So what does that make you now then? Merwolf?” Mary pondered brushing away specks of sand from her cheek.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on December 06, 2017, 07:19:44 AM
"I don't even want to think about it," Cole answered with a nervous laugh. He gripped the steering wheel tighter as he drove, and finally pulled into Dewey's without another word.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on December 11, 2017, 07:06:18 AM
Mary nodded and unclipped herself. “All the more reason to break the curse right?” She looked towards Cole, wanting to touch his hand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on December 11, 2017, 09:57:34 AM
"I haven't yet," Cole said. He waited until she was situated in the car before he drove off to the restaurant.

Sunny grinned at the music, and turned towards the window so she could feel the wind on her face.

Hey, I'm getting lunch with a friend today. How about another time? Andrew sent the message to Ferris and kept eating, waiting to see if Clemence had any ideas.

[lol i should be studying for my finals]

Ferris frowned at the response as he read it, sitting in his car in the parking lot of the restaurant. He didn't know why it stung. At least Andrew had responded. Ferris quickly typed out a reply; Sure, lemme know when!
Have fun!
and hit send.

Chris grinned over at Sunny, glad she seemed to enjoy it. Some people got annoyed, but he couldn't not drive his car without blasting music. It didn't take long for them to reach the restaurant, and he pulled in next to Cole's car and shut his off after rolling the windows back up.

"Well, I guess we can just start there. Do patrols and stuff, you know?" Clemence suggested.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on December 12, 2017, 02:30:10 PM
(We've all been there friend.)

Cole nodded and unbuckled his seat belt, saying nothing. He hated being less than human, hated knowing that the wolf was always somewhere inside him no matter how far away the full moon was.

(Lol Cole is my grumpy emo kid and I love it)

Sunny ran her fingers through her hair again to try combing it into looking halfway decent, but she soon decided that it required too much effort. She opened her door and slid out of the car. Pizza sounded awesome right now.

"Yeah, yeah that sounds good," Andrew agreed. Beaumont had a lot of dense woodsy areas that the werewolves could roam, but how hard could it really be to find and take care of them? "We'll need to bring weapons, just in case. Do you have a gun or anything like that?" he asked, lowering his voice.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on December 12, 2017, 05:00:31 PM
Ferris saw the others and hopped out. Well, at least he made a pretty good fifth wheel.

"Hey man, why so down?" Chris asked, smiling as he put his hands into his pockets after getting out of the car.

Clemence nodded. "Sure do. Do you?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on December 13, 2017, 03:40:50 AM
Mary finally reached out to tap his hand and smiled. "Come on, food will cheer you up."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on December 13, 2017, 08:59:45 AM
"Food is the best therapy," Cole agreed, hopping out of the car.

Sunny held the door open for the others as they walked in, and closed it behind her.

"Yeah. Got my concealed carry license earlier this year." Andrew smiled softly, taking one last big bite out of his burrito.

Chris smiled at Sunny and thanked her as he went in, then looked around for an open table for all of them to sit at.

"Cool," Clemence smiled a bit and finished her food, then hopped out of her seat to go take it to the trash.

Mary went on her tiptoes to scout for the best seats of the house, making sure not to attract any attention and pointed. “Agreeable?” She asked placing both her arms around Chris and Sunny.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on December 15, 2017, 11:36:35 AM
Sunny tried not to squirm when Mary put her arm around her, and forced a smile. "Sure, yeah. That's good," she said.

Andrew gathered up his trash and went to go throw it away, his mind now busy with other thoughts. He finally knew who his partner was, and they were going to take care of the wolves. Done. Solved. Now, hopefully he would have enough time to go work out today after finishing his studio projects.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on December 15, 2017, 12:24:51 PM
Chris just smiled at Mary and nodded. "Looks solid," he said and made his way over to it.

Clemence turned toward Andrew when she was ready to go and smiled. "I'll see you later?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on December 19, 2017, 06:43:11 AM
Cole wordlessly slid into the booth and pressed himself close to the window.

Sunny sat down across from him, readjusting her dress as she did so.

"Yeah, definitely. Text me." Andrew smiled and nodded. "Nice meeting you."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on December 19, 2017, 08:08:53 AM
Mary slid beside Cole and drew out the menu, her mouth watering at the pictures on the menu. “So what’s on the agenda for today?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on December 19, 2017, 08:48:18 AM
"Food," Chris answered as he sat down, looking over the menu. He wanted to order basically everything, but his wallet and bank account were screaming at him not to. Still, he intended to eat a lot. He was part wolf, after all.

"You too," Clemence smiled and waved a bit to him, then turned and headed away.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on December 19, 2017, 11:49:26 AM
"How many pizzas are we going to need?" Sunny wondered aloud. She'd been frugal with her money lately. A pizza or two or six was no big deal, right?

Cole furrowed his brows as he studied the menu. "I don't know, but they're all gonna have to be large."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on December 19, 2017, 11:54:34 AM
"Well, there's five of us...we can all share three larges?" Cole suggested, though for a second he didn't know if that'd be enough still.

"I'm cool with whatever," Ferris shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on December 20, 2017, 12:24:36 PM
^(do you mean Chris?)

“Suggestion,” Mary raised her hand slightly, as she tilted her menu down. “Why don’t we all get our own pizzas, extra large. To avoid disappointment.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on December 20, 2017, 12:26:23 PM
(Yup thats who I meant)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on December 21, 2017, 09:13:50 AM
"Well, I definitely can't afford an extra large all by myself," Sunny said. "But we might be able to split them. And I'm pretty sure they can do half and half stuff, with the toppings and everything."

Cole leaned back in his seat as he thought. "I can chip in to help cover someone," he offered.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on December 21, 2017, 09:16:51 AM
"Yeah, splitting some shouldn't be a problem," Chris said. "What does everyone want?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on December 21, 2017, 09:21:25 AM
“Cheese with extra cheese.” Mary searched within her bag for her purse. “Please.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on December 26, 2017, 09:06:57 AM
Sunny pursed her lips, thinking. "As long as half of one is the buffalo chicken, I'm good."

The server came by after that to take their drink orders, and Cole ordered a water.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on December 26, 2017, 09:08:38 AM
Chris and Ferris both ordered water as well when the waiter came around.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on December 26, 2017, 09:21:40 AM
Mary nodded the same order as everyone else and stared off in the distance.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on December 31, 2017, 04:17:29 PM
Sunny ordered a Coke and waited for everyone to decide what they wanted. A few minutes later, the waiter came by again to ask if they were ready.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on December 31, 2017, 04:21:06 PM
"Uh, yes," Ferris said tentatively and glanced around the table, then told the waiter they needed one large cheese for him and Mary and whoever else.
Chris ordered his pizza half and sipped on his water, glancing around the table.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 02, 2018, 01:43:58 PM
Sunny ordered buffalo chicken on the other half, and Cole got a calzone.

"So," he said once the server had left, "do we have any new ideas on...anything?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 02, 2018, 01:51:26 PM
"Well, I have a lot of ideas, but you'll have to be more specific," Chris said with a bit of a smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 02, 2018, 02:26:16 PM
Cole frowned and shrugged. "The curse, the fins, why adding weed to drinking makes a hangover worse. I don't know."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 02, 2018, 02:36:30 PM
"Uh...well, at first I thought the curse might be worse during the super moon, but the super moon really isn't that much more super than a regular full moon so it's probably the same? Also we can't really measure that," Chris frowned into his drink. "Fins....I got nothing."

"Also no clue on the fins, but as for weed and drinking, just gonna toss in that straight up smoking and not getting twisted has no after affects," Ferris added in wisely.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 02, 2018, 02:50:26 PM
(I may or may not be going aesthetics crazy, lol. I have a new obsession.)

"Really? Not even the feeling that your head's stuffed with cotton?" Cole asked. He had a sinking feeling in his stomach that maybe their curse was unbreakable, but he didn't let it show on their face.

Sunny took a sip of her lemonade, wondering if she should tell the others about the weird trance she'd been in. Maybe Ferris or Mary had experienced something similar? But how exactly she was going to explain it escaped her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 02, 2018, 03:09:34 PM
(LITERALLY ME. They're so fun!)

"Well, I mean, that's...while your high. At least you don't puke your guts out afterward," Ferris shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 02, 2018, 03:44:27 PM
(YES. I'm gonna make so many. All the characters!)

Cole nodded slowly, thinking that over.

After a beat of silence, Sunny decided to speak up. "Have either of you," she said, looking between Ferris and Mary, "felt really...weird, being at the beach at night?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 02, 2018, 03:49:05 PM
Ferris looked at Sunny and then his forehead creased a bit as he thought about it. "I, uh, don't know if I've been to the beach at night. Why, did something happen?" He lifted his gaze back up to hers.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 02, 2018, 04:02:58 PM
She nodded and explained what had happened the previous night, trying to hide the blush creeping to her cheeks. It was just so embarrassing, and weird, and hopefully she would never have to talk about it again.
"I mean, I remember everything," she finished. "I don't know if that means anything, but it's...yeah. I dunno." Looking back, the whole event - from the time she and Chris had arrived at the beach to when they left to go to Sonic - was hazy, but Sunny was confident that she remembered most of it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 02, 2018, 04:09:02 PM
"Huh. I mean, I've never had that happen but..well, the moon and the ocean are kinda connected, right? Like Avatar." Ferris shrugged and leaned back.

"The moon and ocean are connected..." Chris repeated to himself and tapped his fingers on the table, thinking about that.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 02, 2018, 04:28:15 PM
"Do you think it'd happen again?" Cole said, mostly to himself, though he glanced up at the mers.

Sunny bit her lip. "I don't want to find out."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 02, 2018, 04:36:57 PM
"It was that scary?" Ferris asked, concern etched across his face. "Well, shoot. I don't want to find out now."

Chris looked between everyone and frowned.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 02, 2018, 05:04:55 PM
"For me, it was. I don't like not being fully in control of myself." Sunny tapped her fingers against her thigh. But then again, maybe that wouldn't bother Ferris.

"Maybe it won't be as strong when gets closer to the new moon. Since the moon and the ocean are connected and all." Cole took a sip of his waster, thinking more about that. Had it really been a coincidence that they had met, then?

(So I had an idea my head as to how the mer and the wolves met in the novel, but idk how much sense it would make for the rp.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 02, 2018, 05:14:50 PM
(Idk maybe we can make it work?)

Chris glanced over at Cole, then took a sip of his drink. "So we can all agree the moon is a bitch of a bitch?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 02, 2018, 05:20:26 PM
(Maybe. Should I PM you or should we talk here?)

He nodded. "Total son of a bitch," he agreed.

The server then came back with their pizzas,and Sunny helped clear a spot for them by scooting glasses out of the way.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 02, 2018, 05:24:57 PM
(Whichevaaa it don't matter)

Ferris helped move things and all their food was placed down for them.

Chris thanked the waiter and then promptly dug into his food.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 02, 2018, 05:37:37 PM
(All right then. Well, in the book, I thought the mer charries could be under the moon spell thing right, and they accidentally cross paths with the wolves and have to fend them off. And then maybe they'd wake up to see the mer taking care of them or something. Idk the idea's still not fully formed.)

Sunny grabbed a slice of pizza and cut into it with her fork and knife.

Cole dug into his calzone as soon as the server left.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 03, 2018, 08:37:13 AM
(Lmao sorry i thought i had replied. I bet we could work it in?)

Ferris started eating a slice of pizza and looked around the restaurant as he munched.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 03:24:41 AM
(Maybe? Idk. It's not a big deal :P )

The moon and the ocean are connected. Sunny thought more about that as she ate. It definitely made sense with her, Ferris, and Mary. They were now ocean creatures, after all. The moon influenced the tides, so it made sense that it could influence mers. Granted, the werewolves didn't have a connection to the ocean, just to the moon - except they did, now. They were the wolves' connection to the ocean. But what did it all mean?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 03:28:46 AM
Chris bit his lip and then looked toward Cole. "Hey, since your a fish-wolf now, have you felt anything weird around the ocean at night? Or have you even been there at night?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 03:32:43 AM
"Not since last night. But I don't remember much." Cole scratched at an itch on the back of his head. "Drowning wipes your memory clean. But I could try it out, see what happens."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 03:49:39 AM
"Yeah," Cole nodded.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 04:06:40 AM
Chris paused, looking down at his food. He hated to say it, hated to even think it, but he had to ask. "You know, they say shark attacks and drownings are more likely at night. Never swim alone, all that stuff."

Sunny raised an eyebrow. She would've made a snarky comment if her mouth wasn't full.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 04:11:34 AM
(Oh. We just switched our characters names. WHY IS THIS SO HARD THEYRE NOT EVEN THAT SIMILAR.)

Ferris swallowed his food and frowned a bit. "I mean, I don't think anyone's gonna shove you out into the ocean alone." He shrugged.

"But like say a shark did show up, who would win? Fish wolf or shark?" Chris grinned.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 04:16:36 AM
(I just did it to see if you would notice c: )

"Do either of them win if no one's around to see it?" Cole said, frowning. He didn't want to go alone. He needed to just say the words. But it was probably possible to convince them he wanted them around for a different, less emotional reason. Feelings sucked. Cole wasn't a fan of them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 04:26:55 AM
(I knew it. I suck I'm the wooorst ima get it together i swear)

"Well, I guess we'll all have to be there to judge the fight. You guys in?" He looked at the others around the table.

"As a pacifist and shark lover, I'm gonna come just to ensure the shark is safe," Ferris said, the corners of his mouth turning up.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 05:36:51 AM
"Mermaid versus fish wolf versus shark." Sunny smirked. She didn't want to risk anything happening again, but she felt that it was going to be okay as long as her friends were there. "I'm in."

Cole relaxed at that, and nodded. "Cool. Just keep me posted on when we're going."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 05:39:15 AM
"I have a mean amount of homework I gotta catch up on this afternoon, but I'm down for tonight or tomorrow," Chris shrugged.
"Yeah, I'm free whenever," Ferris seconded.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 05:51:04 AM
"I have to study for a test, but I can go whenever," Sunny added.

Cole thought for a minute, weighing the pros and cons of either day, but ultimately decided that since both were work nights, it didn't matter. "Let's go tonight."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 05:57:52 AM
"Cool, I'll start selling tickets to the match and we'll instagram live it or something," Chris nodded and checked his phone.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 06:07:22 AM
Cole cracked a small smile. "We'll take bets, too. Make some good money."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 06:09:00 AM
"We can get snacks!" Ferris chimed in and Chris grinned.
"Oh hell yeah, it'll be quite the event," he laughed and took a bite of pizza.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 06:17:52 AM
"It's not gonna be any fun without snacks," Sunny laughed in an attempt to disguise her nervousness.

(Wanna skip soon? I'm so looking forward to this.)

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 06:37:52 AM
(Works for me)

Chris pulled up to the beach and felt relieved to get fresh air. After holing himself up all afternoon to work on thermodynamics, he needed a major break.

Ferris was already sitting out by the beach, fiddling with his phone and scrolling through social media. Right now he was on a Twitter kick.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 06:55:12 AM
Sunny ran her fingers through her hair and anxiously twisted it. She didn't really like this plan, but she had already committed, and she wasn't a quitter.

Cole slid the keys to his car in the pocket of his trunks and hoped that he could put it in one of the girls' purses. If something were to happen, he didn't want to be permanently locked out. He took a seat near Chris and Ferris, waiting for the sun to set. The moon was already beginning to rise.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 07:15:21 AM
"Do you really think anything'll happen?" Chris asked Cole.

"Even if nothing happens to him, we'll be able to see if the moon affects me and Mary like it did to Sunny," Ferris said, resting his elbows on his knees.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 07:40:59 AM
"I don't think anything'll happen to me," Cole said, "but who really knows. I didn't think I'd grow gills, either."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 07:59:55 AM
Chris nodded and turned to look out toward the water.

(Do we need clemence and andrew?)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 09:05:17 AM
(I feel like we should bring them in somehow, but I don't know how .-. )

Soon the sun fell beneath the horizon, and the beach was bathed in moonlight.
"So, what exactly happened?" Cole asked Sunny.

She shrugged, looking down at her toes. The ocean call was still strong, but Sunny could resist it - whether because its power had weakened enough for her to, or if she was prepared for it, though, she wasn't sure - for now. "Um. I just felt like I needed to go in the water. And I couldn't concentrate on anything else."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 09:11:34 AM
(I want them to unknowingly interact with the wolves. Hmhmhmhmmmm we might needa wait for a hot minute but i have an idea.)

"How do you feel now?" Chris asked her, frowning with a bit of concern.

Ferris studied Sunny for a second, but then his attention was drawn to the water. He watched as the moonlight started shining on it, and his eyes went a bit wider.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 09:24:51 AM
(Yeah. It would be fun to have them interact with each other and not know c:< Oooooh tell me your idea!)

"Fine. I hear it, but I'm okay." Sunny sneaked a glance up at Chris, and then over at Ferris, careful to keep her eyes away from the water. "Ferris? You okay?"

Cole looked up at the moon, and out onto the water, waiting to see if he felt something. So far, though, all he felt was relief that the moon was in its waning phase, getting weaker. No weird hypnosis yet. But at least if Sunny, Ferris, or Mary lost it, he would be able to go after them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 09:45:16 AM
(It's not very exciting hahaha I was just gonna have Clemence go into Cole's shop  (cuz he works at a machine shop right?))

Chris nodded to Sunny, then looked over at Ferris and nudged his shoulder.
"What?" Ferris turned toward them and then blinked a few times. Now that his eyes weren't on the water, his head felt a little clearer. "Oh," he said, looking up at Sunny. "Okay. Yeah, I think I know what you're talking about."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 10:19:41 AM
(Yep! I like that :) )

"It was even worse last night," Sunny said to him, nodding sympathetically.

"What's the worst thing that's happen if you didn't fight it?" Cole asked them, glancing between Ferris and Sunny.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 10:34:46 AM
Ferris shrugged and pushed his hair back a bit. "I dunno, it just...it feels like I should go in the water, but also like that's not my idea. It's not very nice to experience."

Chris bit the inside of his cheek, nodding some.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 11:02:47 AM
Cole leaned back on his hands, looking up at the sky. "Whose idea is it, then?" he wondered aloud. Without waiting for an answer, he went back up to his car and grabbed a can of beer, then descended down the beach again.

Sunny frowned and turned to Ferris. "I kind of feel like my mom is calling me, you know? Like, someone wants to talk to me. I don't know. What's it feel like for you?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 11:04:29 AM
"Yeah...I guess it's kind of like that," Ferris said thoughtfully, training his eyes on the sand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 11:44:40 AM
"What would happen if you went in?" Cole asked as he cracked his beer can open.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 12:00:45 PM
(Crack open a cold one with the boys)

"I don't really want to find out," Ferris said, a shiver going down his spine.

"Yeah, but what if something amazing happens?' Chris asked, running his fingers back through his hair.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 01:13:32 PM
(Cole will crack a cold one open regardless of whether or not there are any bois)

Sunny closed her eyes and tilted her head down. "Well, I'm not going alone," she said quietly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 01:55:34 PM
(Valid.)

"Cole and I can go in with, to make sure nothing happens," Chris offered and looked pointedly at Cole.

Ferris worried his lip as he thought it through. "I..maybe?'
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 03:16:26 PM
Cole glanced down at the beer in his hand, and shrugged. "Y'all can think it over for a bit. No rush."

Sunny straightened up, an idea forming. "Maybe we don't have to go in just yet."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 03:19:39 PM
(Cole has his priorities)

"Yeah, yeah, we can wait," Chris shrugged and leaned back, looking out at the dark water. His gaze drifted up to the moon and stars. Yeah the moon was a bitch, but a pretty one.
"What happens if you put a werewolf on the moon?" He asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 04:01:36 PM
(That he does, lol. Cole has his vices.)

"Nothing good," Cole muttered, his tone sour.

"Depends on whether we put him on the dark side or the light side," Sunny said carefully.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 04:04:04 PM
"Would it really affect you in space, do you think?" Chris asked, his stomach sinking.

"Maybe not," Ferris said. "Who knows?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 04, 2018, 04:14:09 PM
"I don't think anyone's tried to put a werewolf on the moon before." Sunny smiled softly at Chris. She was half tempted to take his hand and see what he was feeling, but decided it would be too weird.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 04, 2018, 04:26:09 PM
Chris looked over at her and smiled back, trying to let his thoughts go back to being positive. "Guess someone'll have to test it," he said and leaned back on his hands.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 06:08:22 AM
Sunny nodded slowly and sat back again.

For a while, Cole sat in silence as he drank. "I have an idea," he said after he'd finished the can.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 05, 2018, 07:04:42 AM
Ferris eyed Cole's can of beer, then lifted his eyes and looked at him expectantly.

"Do share, oh wise Beer Man," Chris smirked as he turned to Cole.

(Happy new year!!! Right now theyre at the beach at night time and trying to figure out why the mer get drawn toward the sea when the moon's out and are kind of starting to figure out there's a connection between the mer, wolves, and the moon.

Mary leaned her head back, her legs extended out and closed her eyes. She felt nervous about this, the fact the moon could control her actions made her a little aggrieved her as if her parents were calling her back to the sea. She listened to everyone's conversations, for once keeping quiet.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 10:11:41 AM
(Blue is starting to think that she should post world building stuff in the RP Discussions thread like Lee did so that her plans will make more sense.)
(Maybe on the full moon, lol.)

"What if we had one of the mers" - Cole gestured between the three of them - "look at the moon, get in the trance and shit, and see what they say? Maybe we can learn more about it by having someone under the influence clue us in."

Sunny frowned. Chris should change Cole's name to Shitty Plan Beer Man, she decided. The idea itself wasn't shitty, but the method of execution definitely was.

(Blue should just give me a crib sheet of everything bc Kieya is useless :p)


Mary scoffed and shook her head, absurd idea she thought of with the expression on her face. "how does one intend to break said trance once we're in?" She finally piped up, crossing her legs and arms.

"Well it seems to stop when you look away from the water," Ferris shrugged. "I'm up for it."

Chris frowned and looked between the three mer. "I dunno, it sounds kinda dangerous."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 05, 2018, 10:40:42 AM
“Sunny? What about you? Are you going to embark on this... nonsense?” Mary looked up towards her, her eyes displaying uncertainty.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 11:10:43 AM
Sunny shrugged. "I mean, I can. It might work. And Chris was able to snap me out of it before," she added, looking over at him.

"I mean, we realistically only need one, but maybe two of you would be better. We can see what you say to each other." Cole nodded once and crumpled his beer can.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 05, 2018, 11:12:25 AM
Chris met Sunny's eyes before nodding. "Yeah, okay. If you feel alright with it."

Ferris stood up and stretched, popping his back.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 05, 2018, 11:14:37 AM
“Yes well... you two go ahead, I would be interested what you would say...” Mary shrugged and looked at Ferris and Sunny. “If you won’t snap you out of it I probably can help with the help with a douse of sea water.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 11:40:00 AM
"Well, someone will have to keep us out of the water," Sunny said, biting her lip.

Cole raised an eyebrow. "We'll pin you down, then."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 05, 2018, 11:46:21 AM
Mary raised her brows and slightly turned towards Cole. “Yes. That sounds like plan b settled.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 05, 2018, 01:58:34 PM
"Pin you down, got it," Chris said, albeit a bit nervously. He didn't want to hurt them.

Ferris looked a bit more unsure of that suggestion but still nodded. "So, we doing this or what?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 03:41:32 PM
"Yeah, yeah. We're doing this." Sunny swallowed against the lump in her throat, her hands shaking, and looked out over the water. Her muscles relaxed within seconds.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 05, 2018, 03:56:43 PM
Ferris turned a moment after Sunny, and immediately was entranced by the call again.

Chris looked between them, then looked over at Cole before shrugging. "Gonna ask them questions or just wait and see if they do anything?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 04:09:24 PM
Cole furrowed his brows, but nodded. "Can you guys hear me?" he asked, glancing between the two mer.

Sunny nodded, but didn't say anything.

(You can decide how strong the effect is on Ferris. I was thinking that the call would get weaker as the moon wanes and stronger as it waxes, but I think at this point it's only been 2 days since the last full moon and this is [presumably] the first time Ferris has experienced it??? Idk man do whatever.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 05, 2018, 04:14:25 PM
(Ill just go with uhhh it having uh the yeah not as strong effect)

Ferris nodded as well, but he took a shuffling step toward the water.

Chris crossed his arms as he watched them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 04:25:03 PM
"Hey, Ferris, you need to stay here," Cole said to him. "You gotta keep your legs."

Sunny huffed in annoyance and flicked at some sand on her knee. Legs were overrated, now that she thought about it. Especially when the ocean was singing so sweetly to her.

"Have y'all gone mute?" was Cole's next question. "We've established you're not deaf."
"I'm not," Sunny muttered. Fine. She'd sit for now. Fine. If push came to shove, she could convince the wolves to let her swim.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 05, 2018, 04:30:21 PM
"Mm," Ferris mumbled in agreement and didn't take another step, but he visibly looked more annoyed.

Chris looked back at Cole and then pursed his lips. "So, is the ocean like, talking to you?" He asked the two mer.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 04:34:34 PM
"Not talking, no." Sunny paused, looking up at Ferris. "It's more like a song, right?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 05, 2018, 04:36:13 PM
"Yeah...prettiest song I've ever heard," Ferris said, sighing eistfully.
Chris raised an eyebrow. "...right," he said, shifting his weight a bit.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 04:44:34 PM
Sunny smiled and turned toward the wolves. "Do you want to hear it?" she asked, focusing mostly on Chris.

Cole frowned. "We can't, Sunny. We're not like you."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 05, 2018, 04:45:58 PM
Chris raised his eyebrows and then realized what she meant. "Uh, maybe later?" He said with a half smile. He had a hard time saying no.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 04:56:33 PM
She smiled, softly and sweetly, and then stood up to remove her shoes. "But I don't know when I'll be back."
"Hey, no, come on, you both have to stay here." Cole reached up to hold her wrist. He knew he was stronger than Sunny, and he hoped that Ferris wouldn't leave without her. Maybe mermaids formed schools the way werewolves formed packs. "Come on."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 05, 2018, 05:00:13 PM
Ferris saw him stop Sunny, then turned and started walking toward the water again. Chris quickly jogged ahead of him to block him. "Hey man, just wait a second," he said, putting his hand on Ferris's arm to stop him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 05:08:30 PM
Cole turned to watch Chris and Ferris, so Sunny placed her other hand on top of Cole's, and let him hear the ocean's song for a moment. His grip slackened, and his eyes glazed over with the same hypnotized shine in her own. Satisfied with her work, she slid her wrist out of Cole's hand and walked towards the water.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 05, 2018, 05:10:40 PM
Chris looked over and then let go of Ferris to go stop Sunny. "Cole, hey, quit it!" He shouted at him as he grabbed Sunny's wrist.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 05, 2018, 05:17:16 PM
"Wait, just listen, then you'll understand," Sunny insisted. She was becoming more annoyed the longer this went on, but she tried to not let Chris see that as she took his hand, the same way she had done with Cole.

Cole shook his head to bring himself back to reality, and pushed himself up off the sand to chase after Ferris. "Guys! Stop! Snap out of it!" he yelled.
In retrospect, this hadn't been the best idea.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 05, 2018, 05:27:18 PM
Chris was about to pull his hand away, but he wasn't quite fast enough and he stopped, his eyes getting that glazed over look.

Ferris sighed in frustration and turned toward Cole, completely facing away from the water. When he did, the effects seemed to wear off slightly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 05, 2018, 10:50:17 PM
Mary had her back to the water for some time, when she heard the commotion she finally stood and took Chris into his backwards hug and pulled him away from Sunny’s touch. “Idiots don’t touch her. Thinking this through Sunny’s not the best person for this task.” Thankfully, Chris was tall enough to block the view of the water but the temptation was still there.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 06, 2018, 01:35:34 AM
With Chris' body blocking her view of the water, Sunny was able to get a grip on herself. She could still hear the call, but she was able to muster enough control to squeeze her eyes shut.

"Come on, Ferris, let's go back. I forgot something in my car and want someone to help me find it." Cole didn't really have a plan other than to keep talking and distracting him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 06, 2018, 02:18:52 AM
"Maybe we should all head back," Chris suggested, stepping away from Mary with a small smile in thanks. "Sound good, Sunny?"

Ferris nodded to Cole, pushing his hair off his forehead for a moment before he started walking to the cars.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 06, 2018, 02:21:37 AM
Mary with a deep breath turned away from the ocean and crossed her arms. “Come on not the best of plans.” She looked at her shoulder, wanting to look at the ocean.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 06, 2018, 02:47:24 AM
Sunny hesitated, but she nodded. "Yeah, that sounds good."

Cole waited for Ferris to catch up, then walked behind him so he couldn't run off again.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 06, 2018, 02:50:01 AM
Mary walked beside Sunny, her gaze focussed ahead. “Have you ever ignored the call back to the ocean before?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 06, 2018, 03:01:47 AM
Chris looked back at the water and rubbed the back of his head before he followed after.

The further they got from the water, the better it was. "Thanks, man," Ferris said to Cole when they reached the cars.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 06, 2018, 03:06:05 AM
"I've only heard it a couple times. And I'm not really good at ignoring it." Sunny blushed, embarrassed, and wiped her hands on her shorts.

"No problem." Cole paused for a second, then added, "That was a bad idea. Sorry, man."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 06, 2018, 03:08:14 AM
"Don't worry about it, it was worth a shot," Ferris shrugged and leaned against the car to wait for the others.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 06, 2018, 03:38:20 AM
“What happens to you?” Mary linked her arms with Sunny and smiled softly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 06, 2018, 03:47:33 AM
Sunny looked down at her feet. "I just can't stop myself. I keep thinking about going in the water, and so far I've been caught off guard every time."

"Well, we learned that apparently the ocean is a good singer." Cole nodded once, satisfied with that lesson.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 06, 2018, 03:52:24 AM
“You can’t help yourself. We can’t.” Mary saw the car up ahead and smiled. “I’ll make the promise to you that I’ll keep you away from the water.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 06, 2018, 08:22:10 AM
Ferris hummed noncommittally in agreement. "So, what now?" He asked.

"Sleep? No more nighttime beach walks?" Chris said as he walked up.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 06, 2018, 01:27:42 PM
"I'm not coming back here at night," Sunny said, "but thanks, Mary."

Cole nodded. "Yeah, sleep sounds good to me."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 06, 2018, 03:49:59 PM
"Thank god," Chris sighed with relief and looked at the others.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 06, 2018, 05:31:04 PM
Sunny nodded in agreement and took a deep breath. "Let's go home," she said, and ran her hand through her hair again.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 06, 2018, 05:38:07 PM
"Nice," Chris sighed with relief and unlocked his car. "Anyone need a ride?"

"I'm good," Ferris said and opened his car door.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 06, 2018, 05:43:27 PM
"Nah, I'm good too," Cole said.

"Do you mind?" Sunny asked Chris, biting her lower lip. Yeah, sure. Try to hypnotize him with her freaky powers and then ask for a ride. That's not weird at all.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 06, 2018, 05:45:46 PM
Chris looked at Sunny and immediately smiled at her. "No problem, there's always a seat for you."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 07, 2018, 12:58:25 AM
“Thanks Chris but I think I’ll walk it.” Mary nodded with a smile and crossed her arms, she kept listening to the ocean wanting for a quick glance.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 07, 2018, 04:19:26 AM
Cole furrowed his brows. "Are you sure, Mary?"

She smiled back; it was such a natural move. "Thank you. I really appreciate it."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 07, 2018, 05:21:49 AM
“Yeah. Would you accompany home? Or do you have other engagements?” Mary asked with a happy refrain.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 07, 2018, 08:27:44 AM
"If you say so," Chris shrugged.

"Cole drove, didn't you?" Ferris said, looking at Cole with a raised eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 07, 2018, 02:53:14 PM
Cole nodded. "Yeah, I did. I don't have any other plans, though."

Sunny nodded and looked down at her feet again, brushing her hair behind her ear.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 07, 2018, 02:56:18 PM
Ferris nodded and then yawned. "Well, I'll catch y'all later," he said and threw a peace sign before he got into his car.

Chris looked at Sunny and opened his car door. "Ready?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 07, 2018, 04:02:29 PM
"Yeah, I'm good." Sunny smiled softly and went over to the passenger side, climbing in the car.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 07, 2018, 04:13:17 PM
Chris got in and started it up, then drove out of the lot.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 07, 2018, 04:19:17 PM
Sunny bit her lip and stared out the window at the passing scenery. "I'm sorry," she murmured after a minute. "I shouldn't have done that to you. Or to Cole."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 07, 2018, 04:20:59 PM
"What?" Chris looked over at her, then back at the road. "Hey, don't worry about it. You couldn't really help it and it was kind of a bad idea to begin with," he shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 07, 2018, 05:05:12 PM
Her eyes welled up with tears. "But I should've known better," she managed to say.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 07, 2018, 05:06:47 PM
Chris glanced over and panic seized him when he saw the tears. "Woah, hey, hey, don't cry! You didn't hurt us, we're totally fine. And how could you have known better? Sunny, you couldn't control what you were doing. Don't worry about it, okay?" He let go of the wheel with one hand and reached over to squeeze one of hers quickly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 07, 2018, 05:26:03 PM
Sunny looked down at his hand, then up at his face. "I guess I just thought Cole was serious when he said he'd pin me down." She wiped at the tears with her other hand. "I thought that would stop me from doing anything."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 07, 2018, 05:27:49 PM
"He probably didn't want to hurt you," Chris shrugged and lwt vo of her hand.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

“You know after the kiss I thought you would’ve grown a tail too.” Mary looped her arm with his.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 08, 2018, 05:04:40 AM
"Don't worry about me, I'm fine." Sunny turned to look at him. "Are you feeling okay?"

Cole scooted further away from Mary, shuddering. "I'm glad I didn't."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

"On you? No. On me? Yeah, I would've flipped out." Cole slid his hands into his pockets and looked out at the beach.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 09, 2018, 11:20:08 AM
“Hey thanks for hanging out with me a little longer, I uh... appreciate it.” Mary kept her back to the beach.

(Ehhh, she'll catch up, right?)

Cole sipped on his water bottle as he waited for another client. It was a slow day at the auto shop.

Sunny slid a T-shirt on over her head, and was sliding her shoes on when a thought crossed her mind - she looked like a high schooler. It didn't help that she was short and petite. But she could at least dress like a college girl, right? Or wear makeup or something. With that thought in mind, Sunny applied what little makeup she had, and tried to style her hair.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 09, 2018, 03:53:56 PM
(Yayaya)

Clemence parked at the autoshop, squinting to make sure this was the right one. An autoshop was an autoshop, right? She shrugged and got out, walking inside. The door chimed above her head, which made her look up for a second.

Ferris poured over his Ancient Environments textbook, filling out the study guide for his exam coming up. He normally wouldn't open his textbook for any class, but this professor only lectured on the excavation he did on a lost city in South America. Which would be really cool (scratch that, it was really cool) if that's what the exams were on - which they weren't.

Reminds me of Leviathan times :o

And don’t worry if you guys need to skip, I understand we live in dif timezones just make sure you guys don’t go too far pls. :3)

Adeline had slicked her still damp hair into a bun and sighed. Her morning routine of swimming had kept her from thinking about how lonely she had. In that case she decided her hold a party in her mausoleum of a home. She entered her class, spreading the word. (You don’t mind right? :p)

Mary looked out at the college and grimaced, the thought of going to class gave her shivers. She shook her head and did so anyway clutching her textbooks and a notepad in one hand and a pen latched on her low cut shirt.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 10, 2018, 05:25:18 AM

Cole looked up when he heard the door chime, and nodded in greeting at whoever had just come in. "Hey," he said, straightening his posture.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 10, 2018, 05:28:23 AM

Clemence turned around to look at whoever had spoken, and gave him a cheerful smile. "Hey," she said and walked over to the desk. "I think I called here yesterday? Anyway, my car's passenger side is making this sound like something might be loose in it? I got the tires changed a little while ago and it's been doing that ever since. I didn't think I was a big deal but my dad insisted. Can you check it out?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

Cole nodded. "Yeah, sure. Where's it at?" he asked, standing up and heading over to the car lot.

(*pretends to know auto shop jargon*)

(*knows literally nothing about cars other than how to drive one and pump gas*)

"It's the black Saturn," Clemence said, following him out.

( y u guys so busy 😫😫  also I took the liberty to create said playlist :p)

Mary slid beside Ferris and opened her textbook, and opened her notebook that was scrawled with her previous notes. “Better than modern history.” She muttered, she started to continue where she left off.

Adeline had sent a mass text to everyone and anyone:
Hey Addie here! 2430 Boulevard Street, 8pm, expensive booze provided. Bring anything else, and anyone else. Let’s get shitfaced. after a long time crafting a simple message, she heard a crowd full of pings go off the classroom.

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 10, 2018, 06:06:48 AM
(*has never spent an extended period of time in a mechanical car place to know anything about them*)

Once the Saturn was high enough up for Cole to have a good view, he slid underneath the passenger side and started tinkering.

Well. Several attempts at eyeliner later, Sunny felt she'd gotten a result that didn't resemble Tim Curry in The Ricky Horror Picture Show. It would have to do, she supposed, and went to go find a good place to study.

"I can help, if you want. History's kind of my thing," Ferris shrugged and quickly smiled at Mary. He then went back to his own book, but checked his phone first.

Clemence leaned against the wall and watched as he worked, though she couldn't actually see anything. So instead she straightened up and started looking around curiously.

Post by: LittleK on January 10, 2018, 06:38:40 AM
“The excavation part would be cool.” Mary shifted out loud as she fished out her phone out her back pocket. “So many ways of excavating...” she trailed on as her face lit up.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 10, 2018, 07:18:15 AM
Once Cole found the problem, he slid out from under the car and walked over to Clemence to explain the problem and the cost to fix it.
"You're not in serious trouble yet," he explained, "but if you can afford it, it'd be better to get it fixed soon."

Sunny made her way over to Ferris and Mary and sat down across from them. "Hey, guys."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 10, 2018, 07:22:39 AM
"Mm, yeah, I can do it. Should I just leave it here or...?" Clemence raised her eyebrows questioningly.

"Hey," Ferris smiled widely as Sunny joined them. "You look nice," he commented.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 10, 2018, 07:44:31 AM
“Hey sexy, are you up for a party tonight?” Mary asked, scribbling the last part of the sentence and huffed. “Both of you?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 10, 2018, 07:50:25 AM
"If you want. Or you can stick around; it shouldn't take too long," Cole said. "There's water, couches, and some snacks in the main office."

Sunny smiled, though she was still self-conscious, and turned toward Mary. "Where's the party at?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 10, 2018, 07:51:49 AM
"Thanks," Clemence smiled. "What was your name? I'm Clemence."

Ferris looked up as well, waiting to hear.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 10, 2018, 08:09:05 AM
Mary looked up the address and nodded. “Adeline George’s house, Boulevard street? You guys in?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 10, 2018, 08:16:32 AM
"Cole. Nice to meet you." He extended his hand for a shake.

Sunny nodded slowly. "Yeah, I can go."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 10, 2018, 08:18:18 AM
Clemence shook it and then looked back at her car. "So do I have to go sit in there or can I watch?"

Ferris tapped his pen against his book and shrugged. "Sure, yeah."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 10, 2018, 08:46:30 AM
Mary nodded, twisted in her fingers as she made a quizzical face. “Well, I’m screwed.” She leaned back and placed her pen behind her ear.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 10, 2018, 10:05:56 AM
"You can watch. That's fine." Cole nodded once, and went back to fix Clemence's car.

"Why are you screwed?" Sunny asked, brushing a strand of hair off her face.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 10, 2018, 10:16:06 AM
Clemence watched as he went, tilting her head a bit. "So, you a student or is this a fulltime gig?"

Ferris looked up and frowned at Mary.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 10, 2018, 10:35:39 AM
“Do you ever have that feeling where you look down at your notes and the books and you think and wonder what the hell is this?” Mary closed her book with a huff. “Or is it just me?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 10, 2018, 02:18:28 PM
"It's full time. I left school last semester," Cole said, sliding back under the car and going to work.

"No, it's definitely not just you. Sometimes I question why I want to go into nursing." Sunny cracked a small smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 10, 2018, 02:44:52 PM
Clemence watched him curiously, then looked around the shop. "So you're from around here, then? Or did you just get stuck here after you left school?"

"Hey, my offer still stands to help you with history," Ferris offered with a fleeting smile. "But yeah, I feel ya. I don't even like dirt that much," he said, frowning down at his textbook.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 11, 2018, 02:29:44 AM
“I’ll take any help I can get thanks Ferris.” Mary replied with a smile, she leaned over to Sunny and tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. “Couldn’t you like use your powers to get us straight A’s?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 03:08:31 AM
"I grew up pretty close to here. But I don't have anywhere else to go, really." Cole shrugged. "And it's not bad."

Sunny stiffened at that. "My powers don't work that way," she said lamely, although after what happened last night, she was beginning to think that they could.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 11, 2018, 04:32:43 AM
“Don’t know unless if you try?” Mary asked again flipped through her notes and sighed. “You know see if your powers are more powerful and stuff?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 04:35:10 AM
"I don't want to be able to do things like that," she admitted in an even quieter voice than before.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 11, 2018, 04:51:57 AM
Mary smiled softly and nodded, “I suppose life’s not supposed to be easy. But that’s cool.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2018, 05:01:55 AM
Clemence nodded, despite him not being able to see her. "So do you do anything noteworthy besides tinker with cars?" She asked.

"Getting A's the old fashioned way seems more rewarding, anyway," Ferris shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 05:04:02 AM
"Not really. I drink. What about you?" Cole asked. He moved down a ways to have a better view of the car.

"Yeah, totally agree," Sunny said quickly. "Definitely more rewarding."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2018, 05:05:50 AM
"You drink and you know things?" Clemence smirked a bit, but then realized that was less funny if he didn't watch Game of Thrones. "I'm a student, but I dance as well."

Ferris looked up at Sunny and smiled warmly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 11, 2018, 05:08:20 AM
Mary nodded in agreement, she was already on her phone forwarding the party details to Cole, Chris and the others. “But last night was weird both of you.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 05:11:29 AM
Cole smiled softly at that, even though she couldn't see it. "Oh, yeah? Are you a dance major?"

"Well, yeah. It was weird for all of us, I think." Sunny chewed on her bottom lip.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2018, 05:15:24 AM
"Nah, I've never wanted to be famous and I don't want to teach, so it was kind of useless to major in it. I'm studying Econ with a minor in ethnic studies," Clemence explained as she finally just sat down on the floor a few feet away from the car.

Ferris nodded in agreement, not having much else to say on the subject.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 11, 2018, 05:28:08 AM
“Sorry I’ve been doing most of the talking...” Mary leaned back, “what’s on your minds?” She shoved her phone in her jacket pocket, and opened her book once more.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 05:45:58 AM
"Nice." Cole wasn't sure what else to say, but he figured she'd come up with something. Girls usually did.

Sunny shrugged. "Blood vessels, mostly. And nerves. You?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2018, 05:47:42 AM
Clemence leaned over a bit to see what he was doing. "How long have you been working here?"

"Monkey gods," Ferris mumbled, glaring at his textbook.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 11, 2018, 06:09:38 AM
“Normal stuff cool. 1700 British politics.” Mary frustratedly sighed and continued to scrawl on the side of her notebooks.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 07:17:54 AM
"Six months." Cole cursed under his breath, but quickly regained his composure. "My high school partnered with a trade school so we could get technical experience with our degree, and I went into the mechanics program."

"What are you majoring in, again?" Sunny asked Mary.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 11, 2018, 07:22:41 AM
“Archaeology and History. Yeah, freaking nightmare.” Mary replied with a scoff as she looked up again.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2018, 07:51:25 AM
Clemence frowned a bit. "Sorry, am I distracting you?"

Ferris raised his eyebrows. "I didn't know that, me too."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 08:00:16 AM
He shook his head. "No, you're fine. This looks like it's gonna take longer than I thought."

"Two history nerds, huh?" Sunny teased. "It sounds fun, though."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2018, 08:03:30 AM
"Oh," Clemence leaned over more to try and see, but then gave up and sat up straight again. "How long do you think? I can stick around all day, or leave, or whatever."

"It can be, when you do actual field work and stuff," Ferris sighed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 11, 2018, 08:10:28 AM
“Hah. I never appear to these classes. I’m always finding myself in the water.” Mary chuckled and looked up as she kept flicking her pen. “Nah different classes, I’m hoping to drop it actually the archaeology side of it.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 08:23:01 AM
"Not much longer," Cole answered. "But you can take off if you want. We should have your contact information in the office."

"I hope nursing is the same way," Sunny said. More and more, she was realizing how many times she'd have to wash her hands in the medical profession, and now wasn't sure it was an option. But what else could she do? Nursing had been her dream since she was nine.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2018, 08:31:29 AM
Clemence nodded. "I'll call a ride," she said and pulled her phone out, frowning when she realized she had some info for a party from a number she didn't recognize. "Do you like parties?" She asked, looking up.

"I'm just holding out til I can get to South America," Ferris rested his cheek against his hand. "Plus, I'm pretty stoked to make some underwater discoveries. Maybe I'll find Atlantis."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 11, 2018, 08:38:21 AM
“Eh, maybe with our tails we’ll find it in no time.” Mary inhaled tapping her pen on the side of her head and smiled. “I was hoping somewhere in these history books could hold our cure.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 09:34:27 AM
He nodded. "Uh, yeah. I like parties, why?"

"Our cure?" Sunny repeated. She wasn't sure she'd call it that, but the term worked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2018, 09:36:52 AM
"There's one tonight," Clemence shrugged as he stood up. "You should come."

Ferris looked up curiously. "How do you think that? They don't exactly cover mermaids in most history classes. Unless its like about cryptids..." he trailed off, then his expression lit up with an idea.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 11, 2018, 09:46:41 AM
“Why do you think I’m archaeology? To find some votive or shabtis or any ancient relic that could find our source of a cure.” She said in a hushed tone. “They all point to one thing..”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 10:36:47 AM
"Where and what time?" he continued, looking over at her feet as he worked.

Sunny glanced between them, her brows furrowing together. "What? What are you guys thinking?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 11, 2018, 10:45:13 AM
“Well from my mediocre understanding, and I’m probably sure Ferris has a better explanation. Magic, seems to be the answer to everything. Shamans, witches etc. But i dont know I’m pretty unsure about this...”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2018, 10:48:36 AM
Ferris was only half listening as he texted Andrew. Random question, but do you know anything about mermaids? I remember you said you liked cryptids and stuff, do they count?

"Uh, some chicks house. I can text you the details," Clemence leaned over and smiled at him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 11, 2018, 01:06:58 PM
Cole slid out from under the car and smiled over at Clemence. "Yeah, that sounds good," he said, and grabbed a slip of paper to give her his phone number.

Sunny nodded slowly. "I mean, I definitely think it's magic. But I don't even know how this happened."

Andrew felt his phone vibrate in his pocket, and pulled it out. A small smile crossed his face when he saw it was Ferris, and he quickly responded. The only things I know about them is that they're half human, half fish, and supposedly they can grant wishes. And something about controlling the weather and/or storms? Not sure if that helps.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2018, 03:18:54 PM
"Cool," Clemence smiled at him.

Hm, yeah, it helps a bit! Hey, are you busy tonight? Ferris smiled down at his phone as he typed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 12, 2018, 03:47:53 AM
“Maybe there was always a bunch of merfolk and wolves in Beaumont.” Mary whispered peering over to Ferris. “But hey that’s just my opinion.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 04:07:33 AM
"I'll give you a call when your car's done," Cole said, smiling again.

Sunny paused. "I think you're right. And who knows, maybe there are merfolk and wolves everywhere."

I have a pottery project to finish, but otherwise, no, why? Andrew typed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 12, 2018, 04:11:07 AM
“Exactly, maybe we aren’t that special. Maybe it’s just random selection, or whatever. But I think the answer lies within people who can do magic, like you know...” Mary looked to Sunny hoping she knew the answer.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 12, 2018, 06:20:03 AM
"Cool, thanks Cole," Clemence smiled at him again before she headed toward the door.

There's gonna be a party tonight, if you wanted to go, Ferris sent, tapping his foot. He glanced up at the other two.
"Sorry, what about magic?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 07:08:46 AM
Cole nodded once, then went back to working on the car.

"Like...witches?" Sunny said carefully. It seemed plausible. After all, if merfolk and werewolves existed, why not witches? She turned to Ferris and said, "Mary thinks a witch can turn us back into regular humans."

Andrew pushed his glasses up his nose, typing a reply. Right. Another one of my friends said that, too. I'm down.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 12, 2018, 07:45:56 AM
“Slash priests, slash shamans, slash kahunas etc etc. People who practise magic.” Mary shrugged and leaned back in her chair. She purses her lips as she did so, surely someone set this curse by a witch of some kind.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 07:55:48 AM
"Problem is, where do we find these people?" Sunny said, tapping her fingers against the table as she did so.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 12, 2018, 07:58:39 AM
Mary leaned back forwards and placed her elbows on the desk, her hands covering her mouth. Then her eyes lit up, and clapped a little too loudly than she expected. “The party tonight, we just need to be more attentive!”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 09:01:54 AM
"What, do you have a prime suspect or something?" Sunny asked, raising an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 12, 2018, 09:05:26 AM
Ferris raised his eyebrows. "Witches?" He frowned a bit. Sounded sketchy.
Sounds good, hope to see you then! He texted Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 12, 2018, 09:24:51 AM
“No... but inebriated guys and gals will be there tonight trying to show off to get some, there might be some witches in town.” Mary shrugged with pursing her lips. “Do you have any other explanation?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 09:30:07 AM
Sunny shrugged. "It's worth a shot." What exactly they would do with a witch if they found one, she wasn't sure, but she supposed there was no harm in trying.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 12, 2018, 10:29:12 AM
“Well it’s worth a shot unless you want to input anything Fez?” Mary asked, looking at him quizzically.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 12, 2018, 10:43:05 AM
"Well, for one, thats a terrible nickname. Second, I dunno if I want to mess with a witch." He shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 12, 2018, 10:53:04 AM
“So do you have an alternative Bueller?” Mary leaned on her hand as she traced a sketch on the side of her notes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 12, 2018, 10:56:55 AM
Ferris just sighed and shook his head. "How do you know a witch would even have actual magic? There's like Wiccans and stuff, they can't do like shoot magic out of your fingertips stuff."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 11:16:20 AM
"But how are we going to convince a witch to turn us back?" Sunny mentioned. "I don't even know exactly when it happened."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 12, 2018, 11:22:52 AM
Mary groaned in frustration and shook her head, “It’s just a theory okay? Yes there might be a possibility that they might not shoot magic out their fingers but we can. And I know it sounds crazy, but this... us and the others we’re technically just ‘myths’ we belong in books not in Beaumont. What’s not to say there are other beings with magical abilities you know?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 12, 2018, 11:39:28 AM
Ferris looked unconvinced, but just shrugged. "Well, I guess it doesn't hurt to keep an eye out. Maybe they would know something. Witches like the moon and stuff, and clearly that's connected in all of this." He glanced down at his phone and sighed, packing up his things. "I gotta head out, but I'll see you guys tonight!"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 11:45:46 AM
Sunny smiled and nodded. "Yeah, see ya!"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 12, 2018, 11:50:28 AM
Mary flipped her textbooks closed and took a sigh. “Well once again another eventful day. But whatever, you heading home to get ready?” She asked sliding her jacket on.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 11:58:39 AM
"I have a chemistry lab, but yeah, I'll start getting ready after that." Sunny hesitated, then asked, "Do you know anything about, like, hairstyling, and makeup and stuff?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 12, 2018, 12:05:16 PM
Mary swept her books into her arms and then nodded. “Yes... to them all. Meet me at my house when you’re done.” With that she clicked her tongue, winked and walked to her next class.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 12:15:34 PM
Sunny nodded and gathered her stuff, heading to her chemistry lab.

(Skip?)

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 01:30:21 PM
(Yeeeeee)

Sunny touched her hair, still not quite believing what she was seeing. "I look different with curly hair," she murmured. And who would've thought that gold could make her eyes actually stand out of her face?

Hey, you still down for the party? I can come pick you up. Cole set his phone down after texting Clemence, and roughed up his hair.

Andrew and his roommates had decided to pregame with some beer, so he was already somewhat tipsy heading in to the party. But he was looking forward to the rest of the night.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 12, 2018, 01:34:19 PM
[I LOVE PARTIES.]

Yeah, that'd be great! Thanks Clemence texted back, adding her address for him. She checked her lipstick in the mirror and adjusted the velvet choker she had on.

Hey, I'm omw Ferris texted Andrew. He decided to walk since he didn't live far at all.

Chris had arrived already to the party, already drinking a beer out back with some of the other guys on his team. [idk if I made Chris a jock. I think I just made him kind of a frat boy lmao. whatever, he's on a team now.]
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 12, 2018, 01:38:51 PM
Mary brought her curls in front of her and smiled at the reflection of Sunny. “No. You look beautiful and hot.” She replied slipping into her black boots. She had decided just to dress casually tonight, strappy red shirt, with a pleather skirt she was set. “Don’t you forget that,” as she quickly applied her red lip stick.

Adeline had already opened her doors for the party and brought out her fathers liquor that was stashed away in the display cabinets. She had hooked her music ready onto her sound system. She hoped tonight she’d find someone interesting to hang out with.

(Eyyy heading off now don’t go too wild ;) )
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 02:02:54 PM
(Lol, we won't. Also guys, I just started the backstory infodump in the RP Discussions thread!)

Sunny nodded slowly. At least she looked older than fourteen now. Once Mary was ready to go, she headed out with her.

Cole drove to the address she'd sent and was there in no time, knocking on her door.

Cool. My buddies and I are already here. Andrew made sure everything was spelled correctly before he hit send.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 12, 2018, 02:08:36 PM
[I LOVE IT.]

Clemence opened the door and grinned at Cole. "Hey," she said, hesitating for a second before she stepped outside.

Cool, Ferris grinned and walked inside the house. As he did, Cole was coming in and saw him from the kitchen.
"Ferris! Hey!" he said cheerfully, already a little buzzed.
"Hey, man," Ferris smiled as he walked over and joined Cole, carefully taking a beer. He used his sleeve to hold it so he didn't get any of the ice water on his skin.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 12, 2018, 02:31:45 PM
"You look nice," Chris said, and cracked a small smile.

Sunny looked around the party for a second before she spotted Ferris and Cole. "Hey, guys," she said, and resisted the urge to pull her new dress further down. She had gine shopping for a new outfit earlier, and had decided on a loose light green dress, black leggings, and black boots that went up past her knees.

(Lol, I've been wearing head-to-toe black for so long that I had to remind myself most people wear color :P )
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 12, 2018, 02:40:05 PM
[fuck i switched their names again. I AM SO SORRY. I will get this right some day]

"Thanks, you too," Clemence glanced him over with a bit of a smile, and then went around him. "That yours?" she asked, nodding to the car parked out front.

Ferris grinned as Sunny joined them. "Hey!" he said and then his eyes widened a bit as he took in her appearance. "Wow, I'm digging the hair," he said, his grin reappearing.
Chris turned around as Ferris addressed Sunny, and his eyes went wide as well. "Woah," he said, a bit under his breath. "Uh, wow. Hi," he said louder, and smiled at her.

[whatta mood lol]

(It's fine, I think it's pretty funny XD )

Cole nodded and stepped out of the door frame. "Yep, that's mine. It's hangin' in there."

Sunny blushed and fiddled with the sleeves. "Mary helped. A lot. I figured I should try to look older than fourteen," she said, though she was happy that Chris seemed to like the way she looked.

Andrew went over to grab a beer, and clapped a Ferris on the shoulder when he saw him. "Hey man, what's up?"

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 12, 2018, 03:48:09 PM
(Uggggghhhhh)

Clemence laughed a bit and then reached over to tap his arm. "Well, come on, I'm ready to ger started on your favorite pass time."

"You don't look fourteen," Chris frowned for a second before shrugging. "It looks nice though."

Ferris turned from Chris and Sunny, and his face instantly lit up. "Hey! Just got here. How are you?"

Adeline passed through her peers and finally decided to talk to the guys. “Hey guys, can I offer you guys vodka? Tequila? Cognac?” She slurped her cocktail.

Mary sifted through her friends, exchanging kisses on the cheek and hugs and joined Sunny’s side. “I assume that’s youre way of saying thank you?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 03:50:31 AM
"Me, too," Cole said, smiling again. He walked her over to his car and unlocked the doors.

Sunny nodded. "Yeah, thank you, Mary. I think I might need to get a curling iron."

"Not bad, not bad at all." Andrew nodded once. "How are you?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 04:00:51 AM
Clemence got in and looked around the car, then over at Cole. "Do you know where you're going?"

Chris eyed Sunny's hair, attempting for a second to figure out how curling irons worked. He gave up and flashed an easy smile again. "You girls want anything to drink?" He asked.

"Just dandy. Had an exam that kicked my ass earlier, so this is much needed," Ferris said and sipped his beer.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 04:11:11 AM
“Something strong would be great.” Mary replied with a huff, she set herself up on the counter and looked down on her phone.

Adeline slid Chris some bottles and smiled. “Here help yourself.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 04:30:29 AM
"No, actually, I don't. You said you have the address, right?" Cole asked her as he started the car up.

"Uh...that looks good." Sunny reached for one of the beer bottles, careful not to get the ice water on her skin.

"Yeah, I get that. Turns out the vase I was making had too many air bubbles, and it fell apart in the kiln, so now I have to start completely over." Andrew frowned and took a swig out of his drink. "But I'd had enough of it today."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 06:00:17 AM
"Yep," she nodded and pulled it up on google maps, and directed him to the house.

"Oh, thanks," Chris smiled at Adeline as he took one. "This your party?" He asked her.

"Ah shit, that sucks, man." Ferris looked at him sympathetically. "How long does it take to make another one?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 06:31:46 AM
Mary fished out of her purse a small bottle of vodka, and mixed it with lemonade. “Easy tonight, we need to be witch hunting.” She murmured into her cup.

“Yeah my party, my house, my liquor.” Adeline smiled as she drank the remaining of her cocktail. “Thanks for coming, I don’t think we’ve met. Adeline or Addie.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 07:15:22 AM
Cole parked near the house, and went around to open Clemence's door for her.

"Well, it looks like that'll be up to you and me," Sunny said to her. "Usually Ferris likes to smoke, and who knows what Chris will do."

Andrew shrugged. "If I work on it all day, I should probably have it done by tomorrow night."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 07:23:24 AM
"Oh wow, a real gentleman," Clemence smiled as she got out, then looked up at the house. "Oh, this place is nice."

Chris nodded to her. "I'm Chris, its nice to meet you," he said and sipped his drink.

"Ah, that's not too bad, " Ferris said and took a drink. "Pottery's really cool. I don't think I've made anything since I was like 14, though."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 07:32:42 AM
“Ugh. Men can’t trust them at all.” Mary gulped as she held the cup out to Sunny.

“Nice to meet you, do you go to college? I haven’t seen your face before.” Adeline grabbed a beer and popped the cap using the ledge of the table.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 07:52:28 AM
Cole nodded, staring a little wide eyed at the house. Did people actually live in these kinds of houses? He couldn't imagine it. "Yeah, no kidding."

"Not when it comes to drugs, no," Sunny agreed. She hesitantly took the cup, and then said, "What is this?"

"I hadn't done pottery before I started here, actually. But it's not that hard to get the hang of," Andrew said. He reached for another beer and cracked it open.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 07:57:11 AM
Clemence glanced at Cole before nudging him and heading toward the front door.

"I mean, it's not the tiniest school ever. But yeah, I'm studying engineering. You?" Chris glanced over Adeline, but then his gaze slid over to Sunny and Mary.

"I made a really wobbly vase once," Ferris shrugged. "Are you pretty good at it, then?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 08:03:53 AM
“Vodka and lemonade don’t worry I haven’t spiked it.” Mary had handed it over and was Pouring herself another drink.

Adeline’s eyes followed his gaze and smirked. “Girlfriend? Girlfriends?” She asked eyeing the couple that entered her home.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 08:14:59 AM
Cole walked with her, opening the door and holding it open behind him.

"I mean, it's technically spiked with vodka, isn't it?" Sunny mumbled before taking a small sip.

Andrew shook his head. "No, not yet. I'm actually pretty crappy about it."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 08:18:33 AM
"Thanks," Clemence said as she walked inside after him and looked around at everyone. "Drinks?" She looked over at Cole and nodded toward the kitchen, where it looked like the liquor was.

"Huh? Oh, just friends," Chris responded quickly and took a swig of beer.

"Ah, I doubt that," Ferris said with a wink. Shit. Is that weird? That was weird. Maybe he didn't notice, his inner voice was screaming but he just kept smiling. "Do you paint or anything else like that?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 08:28:29 AM
Mary rolled her eyes and looked watched as Cole walked in with a stranger. "Woah, is Sunny cracking a joke?" She hid her jealousy behind her red plastic cup.


"Hey no, I just separated you from your friends. I'm sorry." She held her hands up and scanned the room, so far tables were being danced upon, couples kissing on her couch and people wretching in the sink. "The host isn't supposed to have fun in their own parties but worry about if others are having fun am I right?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 08:57:56 AM
(The expensive booze makes a difference. People feel fancier so they drink more.)

"Yeah, sounds good. What do you like to drink?" Cole asked her as they went into the kitchen. He nodded at Mary and Sunny as they passed.

"I do that sometimes." Sunny watched Cole and the curly-haired chick walk past them, raising an eyebrow. She turned back to Mary and smiled sympathetically. Yeah, Cole was allowed to go to parties with whoever he wanted, but Sunny knew she'd be jealous if Chris had shown up with someone else.

Andrew shrugged. "A little. Drawing is easier for me." He cleared his threat and asked, "What do you like to do?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 09:03:02 AM
(I guess if its free)

"Uh, I'll take a beer," Clemence said. She didn't really do vodka or anything. Feeling eyes on her, she glanced over her shoulder and briefly smiled at the other two before turning back toward Cole.

"Nah, you can have fun at your own party," Chris chuckled. "Here, I'll introduce you," he said and put a hand on Adeline's back to guide her over to Sunny and Mary. "Sunny, Mary, this is Adeline. Adeline, this is Sunny and Mary," he introduced them. (Wow that was a lot of repetition lmao)

"Swim, hike, be outside," Ferris explained. Then his brain faltered when he couldn't remember what he'd said about not swimming at the beach. What had been his excuse?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 09:15:14 AM
(Addie's got a cabinet of liquor soooo...)
Mary's eyes just missed her smile and nodded towards Adeline. "Addie, great house you should totally do this again." She said leaning to give her two kisses on both of her cheeks.


The hair on Addie's arms stood as he touched her, however she ignored that feeling and returned the kisses from Mary. "Nice to see you guys, please keep enjoying the night and keep inviting people the more the merrier am I right? Also, I do have a pool you guys so make the most of tonight yeah?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 10:14:08 AM
Cole smiled. "Can't go wrong with the classics, I guess." He handed her a beer, and then grabbed one for himself. "So, what else are you into? We covered dancing."

Sunny smiled. "Yeah, sure. Nice to meet you, Addie."

Andrew paused. Hadn't Ferris said he couldn't swim? Whatever. Andrew suspected that Ferris could swim much, much better than he'd originally said. "That's cool. Way to beat the obese American stereotype."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 10:25:14 AM
Clemence leaned against the counter as she thought about it. "Hm...well, I'm trying to go to law school so I guess I like debating," she smirked a bit. "Uh...I dunno, I watch a lot of horror movies and paranormal shows. What about you? Anything besides drinking and knowing lots about cars?"

"Oh yeah, I saw the pool out back," Chris commented and looked toward the back door. It seemed like some peoole were already making use of it, so he made a mental note to make sure the girls and Ferris didn't go out there.

"Well, I didn't grow up in America so maybe that's why," Ferris said, looking thoughtful for a moment.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 10:39:27 AM

Mary raised her bottle and nodded in regard, she was dancing along to the beat and kept glancing at Cole and his guest.


Addie watched the others dive bomb and shook her head, she looked once more at Sunny and narrowed her eyes. She had seen this girl before, her face seemed familiar. "Come on, I'm heading there right now with a bunch of people..." Looking at Mary and Sunny, their faces seemed really familiar and not because she passed them in college but she couldn't pinpoint where.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 10:50:39 AM
Cole smirked. "Not much else. Horror movies are cool."

"I can't swim," Sunny lied, "but I appreciate the offer."

"Oh, really? Where'd you grow up?" Andrew asked, curious.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 11:05:08 AM
"Yeah, you got a favorite?" Clemence asked, then took a long drink.

"Ah, yeah, it looks pretty splashy out there," Chris squinted at the pool and then shook his head. "Thanks, though," he said to Adeline.

"Ah, where didn't I grow up?" Ferris laughed a bit. "My parents were always in the field, so we went...everywhere. My favorite place was probably Ireland, though."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 11:13:57 AM
"Suit yourselves, but I want to see you guys later. Nice to see you guys." Addie took her drink with her and herself to the poolside.


Mary turned her back away from Cole and shook her head. "Splashy?" She looked up at Chris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 11:38:55 AM
"V/H/S is one of my favorites. Have you seen it?" Cole opened his bottle and took a swig out of it.

Sunny smiled at that, now that Addie was out of sight. "Good thing you're an engineer and not an English major."

"Oh, that's cool. What field were they in?" Andrew took another drink, noting how fuzzy his head was becoming.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 11:42:11 AM
"No, but I think I read the Wikipedia page for it," Clemence's eyebrows came together a bit, and then she looked over her shoulder again. "You know anyone here?" She asked, looking back up at Cole with a more relaxed expression.

"Well, they're splashin' around out there! It's splashy!" Chris gestured toward the door but then laughed. "Yeah, it probably is better that I stick to math."

"Archaeology. They also were lowkey treasure hunters," Ferris smiled at the memory and held his bottle to his lips.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 11:58:54 AM
Mary looked at the people who were in the pool and who were going to jump in, without much thought she had commanded the waters to replicate reasonably large waves that could submerge people into the waves. "Very splashy..." Her eyes never left the pool.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 12:22:31 PM
Cole nodded, swallowing the swig o beer he'd just taken. "Yeah, I have some friends here. You?"

Sunny nodded. "Yeah, definitely. Not a good idea to go out there."

Andrew smiled. "Like Indiana Jones? Sweet."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 12:27:10 PM
"I wouldn't say friends," Clemence shrugged and looked around, her eyes landing on Andrew. "Well, one I guess," she shrugged and then looked out toward the pool. "Are people swimming in their clothes?" She squinted a bit.

Chris nodded in agreement as he watched the water. "You doing that?" He asked Mary, noticing her concentrated expression.

"Yeah," Ferris smiled widely. "What about you? Where'd you grow up?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 12:33:23 PM
Mary turned back to Chris with a smile and the water curled and managed to drench everyone who was outside. "Sometimes I can't control it," as she watched the people gasp at how wet they were, whilst the others were guffawing. "Very splashy don't you think?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 01:27:39 PM
"People are crazy." Cole briefly glanced over at the girls, noting Mary's expression. Was she doing this to show she was mad at him? Well, she could deal.

Sunny raised an eyebrow. "Yeah. Splashy. I'm glad I can't do anything that powerful."

"I grew up in Indiana. Corn and soybeans, that's all it has to offer." Andrew covered his mouth as he burped, and then he spotted Clemence on the other side of the room. He held up his hand to wave at her, but she didn't seem to be looking at him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 01:30:40 PM
Clemence caught his look and raised her eyebrows, following his gaze. "Your friends?" She asked with a small smile.

"Maybe tone it down?" Chris suggested, glancing at Mary with a slightly worried expression as he stepped slightly closer to Sunny.

"Soybeans are good," Ferris said and looked over at who Andrew was waving to for a moment.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 01:38:15 PM
Mary breathed out slowly and the waters became still again, she took a gulp of her drink and smiled. “Sorry. I’m itching for a swim.” She managed to finish her drink and felt her cheeks reddening.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 01:41:43 PM
Cole nodded, managing a small smile in return. "Yeah, my friends."

Sunny lightly traced the rim of her beer bottle with her finger. "It's nighttime. It's not a good idea."

"She's another one of my friends," Andrew explained, leaning against the door frame.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 01:49:24 PM
Mary nodded, she caught Cole’s glance and small smile was all she could give him. “Tomorrow morning does that suffice?” Her gaze then went back down into her empty cup.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 01:52:45 PM
"Let's go say hi," Clemence said, touching his hand briefly before she turned and started walking toward them with a friendly smile.

Chris shrugged. It didn't really concern him if they swam in tge morning, so he focused in on the music playing. It was pretty decent trap music, so he wasn't mad at it.

"Gotcha," Ferris looked back at Andrew and smiled before he finished off his beer, which left a nice fuzzy feeling in his head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 13, 2018, 02:43:45 PM
"Hey guys," Cole greeted as they approached. "This is Clemence. Clemence, this is Mary, Sunny, Chris, and Ferris."

Sunny smiled at her. "Hey, nice to meet you."

Andrew was about to reply to Ferris when he saw Cole and Clemence walk over. "Hold on, lemme go say hey to my friend real quick."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 13, 2018, 02:54:55 PM
"You too," Clemence smiled at Sunny. "You all go to school here?"

"Yup," Chris nodded and put his hand on the counter behind him to lean on it.

Clemence nodded to Chris and turned as Andrew walked over with Ferris following after to say hi to Cole.
"Hey!" Clemence said cheerfully to him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 13, 2018, 11:00:48 PM
Mary held her hand up and gave a kiss on her cheek. “Pleasure to meet you Clem.” She stepped back and nodded, “Yeah we all do. You?” She postered her sickly smile and topped up her drink.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 14, 2018, 02:34:13 PM
"Hey, what's up?" Andrew smiled, light headed from the alcohol. "You having fun?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 14, 2018, 02:41:22 PM
"We just got here, but so far yeah," Clemence answered Andrew and then turned to Mary. "Yeah, I do," she told her, but there was something slightly unsettling about the expression the other girl had.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 15, 2018, 03:22:34 AM
Mary nodded and bobbed her head to the music. “Is anyone up to dance?” She asked gulping down another drink.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 15, 2018, 11:24:58 AM
Sunny shook her head. "Nah, I can't dance." Well, actually, she could, but she needed to be more drunk.

"Dancing's not my thing." Cole shrugged, but didn't offer anything else.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 15, 2018, 12:03:47 PM
Mary looked up at down at Cole and scoffed. “Clearly, well when you decide you’re drunk enough join me in my shenanigans.” She reaches over the counter and took a swig of wine.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 15, 2018, 12:18:39 PM
"Better drink more, then, since that's your apparent thing,"  Clemence smiled at Cole and lifted her beer to him before she took a drink.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 15, 2018, 12:53:18 PM
Cole smirked and took another swig of beer. "I'm pretty good at it."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 15, 2018, 03:00:26 PM
"I bet I could out drink you," Clemence grinned.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 15, 2018, 10:32:35 PM
Mary took her bottle and centered herself in the middle of a crowd and started to sensually dance.

Adeline had came in from being drenched and stood over the sink, wringing her hair. “You guys still standing here?” She looked at Chris with a chuckle.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 16, 2018, 10:42:20 AM
(Mary, you're just gonna end up embarrassing yourself.)

"You wanna bet?" Cole raised an eyebrow and smirked again. "You look like you're a lightweight. I bet you're eighty pounds soaking wet."

Sunny nodded, instinctively taking a step backwards. "Yeah, we're still talking."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 16, 2018, 10:46:24 AM
(Could you tell that to me too when I’m drunk? Before I make any embarrassing choices?)

Addie had tied her wet her up and smiled at Sunny. She looked at her with her eyebrows knitting together. “Please, Is there anything I can do to make it more entertaining for you?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 16, 2018, 10:54:42 AM
"You'll be surprised, Cole Who Drinks A Lot," Clemence grinned and finished off her beer, then went to grab another one.

"Ah, nah. This is great, Adeline," Chris told her with a smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 16, 2018, 11:00:05 AM
“Please Addie, we’re all friends here.” She stepped towards Chris and placed another bottle in his hands.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 16, 2018, 11:11:19 AM
(Yeah, sure. Just promise to listen.)

Cole finished his off and went to grab another. No way was he going to be out drank by a girl he'd just met.

"Yeah, really. It is fun." Sunny smiled and nodded.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 16, 2018, 11:17:09 AM
"Ever been iced?" Clemence asked as she opened her beer and started on it.

"Thanks," Chris nodded to Adeline and then side shuffled a little closer to Sunny.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 16, 2018, 11:24:08 AM
(...iced?)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 16, 2018, 11:26:43 AM
Addie had passed another one to Sunny and then clicked her tongue, she nodded and tied her shirt into a knot. “Excuse me, I need to get dressed.” She walked passed them both, and practically ran upstairs.

Mary had found herself on top of the dinner table and invited two others up to dance with her. (Insert 10 Things I Hate About You dance scene gif)

(Uh...like an entire bottle? You just hide a whole bottle?)

"Clemence, I'm a simple guy. Drinking isn't a game. A competition, sure, but never a game." Cole put his hand over his heart to show his sincerity.

Sunny glanced over at Mary worriedly. "Uh, Chris, should we try to stop her?"

(Its about the size of a regular beer bottle)

"Anything is a game if you want it to be," Clemence smirked at him and leaned back against the wall.

"Uh..." Chris looked over at where Mary was dancing. "I mean, she's having fun?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 16, 2018, 11:44:11 AM

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 16, 2018, 12:37:28 PM
"Well, yeah," Cole agreed. "But calling it a competition sounds more...prestigious."

"Yeah, she is." Sunny furrowed her brows. Why was Mary acting like this? She wasn't normally so..unhinged. At least not from what Sunny had seen of her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 16, 2018, 12:49:05 PM
"I guess," Clemence shrugged. "Get to drinking, otherwise you're going to lose."

"Uh...okay, well, let's go get her down," Chris took her hand to go through the crowd out to the table Mary was on.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 16, 2018, 12:52:15 PM
“I never knew love like this before.” Mary sang along with her new found friends, dancing in time with the beat. “Ooh! Look who’s drunk enough to dance with me!” She pointed towards Chris and Sunny.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 16, 2018, 01:01:41 PM
"I never lose." Cole winked at her, taking another swig from the bottle.

"We're not drunk, we're getting you down before you crack your skull open!" Sunny hollered, though she struggled to make her voice heard over the loud music.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 16, 2018, 01:04:17 PM
Mary cupped her ear, “you’ll have to come up here I Can’t hear you.” She winked playfully, continuing to dance.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 16, 2018, 01:06:36 PM
Clemence grinned at him and started drinking her beer more.

"Mary, come on," Chris let go of Sunny's hand so he could reach out to try and get Mary to come down.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 16, 2018, 01:11:46 PM
Mary pouted  and sighed as she rolled her eyes, she kissed both of her dancers and took Chris’ hand. “It doesn’t even matter if I crack my skull.” She muttered, She held her bottle close to her chest watching Cole.

(Yeah Mary, swoon over a guy who loves alcohol more than any woman.)

Cole was able to chug most of his beer in no time flat, and he went to grab his third before he was fully done.

Sunny resisted the urge to tell Mary that Cole was a loser. Instead, she said, "Cole's a moron. Just ignore him."

(But that’s her type of guyyy the emotionally unavailable :p)
Mary slipped her arm around Sunny and nodded, she placed her cheek into hers and smiled. “I love it when you pretend to be by friend.” She closed her eyes still dancing slightly.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 16, 2018, 01:33:21 PM
(Loser vs. Moron)

Chris frowned slightly. "Come on, we should go sit somewhere."

"Hey!" Clemence chugged her beer as fast as she could and then grabbed another, feeling buzzed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 16, 2018, 01:38:04 PM
(Sunny tried to be delicate.)

"I'm not pretending," Sunny said, though she moved her cheek away slightly. Touching was weird, and she wasn't a fan of it.

Cole was already into number three when she said that. "Told you I never lose," he said before he went back to drinking.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 16, 2018, 01:52:04 PM
"Hope you're ready to get sloshed," Clemence grinned before she went back to her beer.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 17, 2018, 01:35:33 AM
“If we’re sitting down could we do it in water please? With some wine please?” Mary hugged Sunny’s arm and sighed. “Chris please? Sunny?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 17, 2018, 06:22:20 AM
"Where do you want to go?" Sunny asked, nervous. She had a feeling, though, that Mary was thinking of the beach.

"I'm always ready to get sloshed." Cole grinned back at her. Three and a half beers in was making him feel light headed, but he wasn't about to lose.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 17, 2018, 06:26:21 AM
“The bath.” Mary pointed upstairs and took another glug of her bottle. “You can join us if you want Chris.” She winked with a chuckle.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 17, 2018, 07:46:41 AM
Chris's face heated up a bit. "I think a bath at a party is a bad idea," he said. "People have to like, pee and puke."

Clemence looked around and then turned to Cole once more. "Let's go look around," she said, nudging him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 17, 2018, 07:51:33 AM
"And they'd see us," Sunny pointed out. "Which would also be bad."

Cole paused mid drink. "Go look around where? The house?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 17, 2018, 08:03:05 AM
"Yeah, why not?" She smiled at him. "Unless you'd rather just be a statue all night."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 17, 2018, 08:19:07 AM
“Have you not recognised that this house is a mansion? I’m pretty sure Addie had a spare bath soemwhere.” Mary wrapped her arm around them both and hung her head. “I’m doing this with or without you guys.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 17, 2018, 03:56:55 PM
Sunny sighed. "I'll hang out with you. But I'm not getting wet. You worked too hard on my hair and makeup for that."

"Yeah, I can do that." Cole shrugged noncommittally.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 17, 2018, 05:00:30 PM
"In the bathroom?' Chris looked at Sunny in confusion.

"Come on," Clemence grabbed his wrist to weave through the crowd.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 18, 2018, 12:20:25 AM
“Atta girl!” Mary pushed through the crowds, and staggered up the stairs. She reached the first door and opened it ajar and then closed it immediately. “Not the bathroom.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 18, 2018, 05:00:43 AM
Sunny shrugged. "Someone needs to be the drunk babysitter. Might as well be me."

Cole looked down at his wrist for a second, but let Clemente pull him along.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 18, 2018, 06:56:22 AM
"You sure? I can come with," Chris frowned even more at her, but Mary was already heading up the stairs. "Uh...well," he glanced at Sunny and then jogged up the stairs.

Clemence paused to look out the back door, but it looked like people were pretty trashed out there. She then started toward the stairs.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 18, 2018, 07:13:26 AM
Mary had found a room with an ensuite, and started to draw her bath. “Come on!” She called out to Sunny and Chris. She went back to the bathroom and got herself in, within seconds her legs glowed, revealing her tail. She giggled and leaned back.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 18, 2018, 07:18:40 AM
"You could've at least shut the door behind you," was the first thing out of Sunny's mouth when she and Chris walked in. "Are you trying to get caught?"

"Have anywhere specific in mind?" Cole asked her. "Addie could probably fit an entire traveling circus in this place." The beer was making him feel relaxed and light, and he enjoyed the feeling.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 18, 2018, 07:20:45 AM
Chris sighed and shut the door to the room, locking it as well.

Clemence just shrugged in response, walking until she found a bit quieter of a place near the base of the stairs. "I couldn't imagine having a place this big, could you?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 18, 2018, 08:01:18 AM
Mary shrugged and lifted her tail, it glimmered in the light. “Damn, I could kill for a house like this. How rich is this girl?” She asked taking a gulp of her wine.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 18, 2018, 09:47:20 AM
"Mega loaded." Sunny watched Mary's tail for a bit, then looked down at her nails.

Cole shook his head. "No, not at all. I don't know how people get this much money."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 18, 2018, 10:22:24 AM
Chris glanced at Sunny, then toward Mary, but then he just shrugged and started to look around the room they were in.

Clemence turned toward Cole again and leaned back against the wall. "Would you ever want this much money?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 18, 2018, 10:27:56 AM
(Bc Addie's secretly related to the Cavinhauls ;) )


"Well this night was a fail. No witch in sight. Do you think if you drench a witch with water they die? Like in Wizard of Oz?" Mary asked making water bubbles and popped once they were in contact with her tail.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 18, 2018, 03:00:22 PM
Sunny scooted away from the water bubbles. "Well, if they do, then we'd have to find another witch, and that would be a pain."

"I dunno. I wouldn't know what to do with it all," Cole said, and slid his hands into his pockets. "Would you?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 18, 2018, 06:26:34 PM
"Witch?" Chris turned around and looked at them, confused.

"No, or at least if I was rich I wouldn't spend it on a place like this. I'd travel," Clemence said, sighing wistfully.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 19, 2018, 12:15:30 AM
Mary sat up and hugged the bath tub. “Do you guys not discuss things during pillow talk? Yeah witches, my hypothesis is that a witch could help us with our curse.” She took her final gulp of her wine and placed it down on the floor.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 19, 2018, 06:17:32 AM
"Do you really think being a mermaid is a curse?" Sunny asked Mary. There was no doubt in her mind that the werewolves were cursed into being what they were, hut somehow, becoming a mer didn't feel like that. At least, not to Sunny.

Cole nodded in agreement. "Yeah, travelling would be nice. I'd go to Portugal."

(Also, where are Ferris and Andrew? I completely forgot about them :P )
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 19, 2018, 06:44:24 AM
“Yes look at me. It’s bothersome, and waking up on a beach after the full moon, not knowing where hell I am...” Mary stopped and sat up and felt her tail. “Sunny... I don’t want to be this...” She splashed more water in that direction.

Adeline had dressed into dry clothes and needed to go to the bathroom. The main bathroom had been occupied for a quite some time so she decided to go into the the ensuite. She rattled the door handle and pushed it slightly. “Yo open up.” She kept rattling the door handle.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 19, 2018, 07:59:38 AM
Chris raised an eyebrow but said nothing in response to Mary. He wasn't sure if that really counted as a curse. Maybe a nuisance. He turned when he heard the door rattling and frowned, then went over to the door. "Uh, you'll have to wait, they're puking in here."

"Why? Do you speak Portuguese?" Clemence smiled a bit.

(Uhhh idk hahaha i kinda forgot too. Okay lets seee)
After everyone else had disappeared, Ferris went to grab another drink and found himself sitting outside, away from the pool.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 19, 2018, 08:06:02 AM
Mary gasped as she clambered out of the water, the lovely buzz that she felt was gone. She felt like her normal self, sober and wet. On the floor, she quickly looked around reaching for a towel.

Addie kept rattling the door and sighed. “I hope you haven’t got it all over the floor.” She looked behind her, and noticed that someone else went into the bathroom with a frustrated growl she kept on rattling the door. “Hurry up!”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 19, 2018, 11:05:44 AM
Sunny tossed her the only towel she could find, a hand towel, and made the most convincing vomiting sound she could. It was sad that Mary considered being a mer a curse. Sunny thought it was inconvenient, but workable.

Cole shook his head. "Nope."

Andrew continued working his way around the party, but ended up sitting with Ferris. "Not in the mood for a swim?" he asked, starting another beer.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 19, 2018, 11:14:25 AM
Chris winced at the noise, then looked over his shoulder before he opened the door and slipped through it before Adeline could go in. "Oh, hey Addie," he said with a half smile as he shut the door. "They'll be a while in there, sorry.'

"Yeah, me neither. My parents taught me French but I dont remember any." Clemence sighed.

"Nah, not tonight," Ferris shook his head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 19, 2018, 11:25:29 AM
Addie’s expression softened slightly when Chris popped out the room. “Oh. Sorry, here’s me thinking some asshole was having a wild time in there.” She placed her hands on her hips and looked up at him with a smile.

“Like being human, full time would be more practical.” Mary muttered as she dried herself off as fast as she could. Dragging herself to a more drier part of the bathroom. “Crap!” She panicked as her shoes became wet. “What is my life?” She wailed dragging herself back to the other side of the bathroom.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 19, 2018, 01:18:24 PM
"We told you this was a bad idea," Sunny reminded her. She grabbed any other towels she could find to help dry Mary off.

"I took Spanish in high school. Can't remember any of it now," Cole said. "Where would you want to go?"

Andrew nodded. "Can't blame you. This chick's plumbing is going haywire, anyway."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 19, 2018, 06:23:17 PM
"Oh, definitely not. Mary just had too much, so Sunny's helping her," Chris explained, leaning back against the door.

"Everywhere. I'd go to Europe, Africa, Australia, and Asia. In that order," Clemence nodded.

"Really?" Ferris looked at him with his eyebrows raised. "How?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 19, 2018, 11:17:09 PM
Mary grumbled as she slid on her pants and held her shoes carefully, not touching the water. “Can you not for once say I told you so? I’m a mess I get it.” She took her hair down, making it look dishevelled.

Addie laughed softly as she placed her hand on the door and leaned in a little. “And you’re here because you’re the body guard?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 20, 2018, 04:09:12 AM
"Uh, something like that," Chris smiled slightly but didn't shy away.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 20, 2018, 04:12:53 AM
“No way I could pry you away for a moment or so?” Addie’s hand inched closer to the door handle.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 20, 2018, 04:14:19 AM
"I'm not gonna baby you. You're older than me." Sunny waited for Mary to finish putting herself together and headed for the door.

"Oh, yeah? Why that order, any reason?" Cole smiled lightly and moved so he was standing next to her.

"I didn't see it, but people say the pool was overflowing earlier." Andrew shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 20, 2018, 04:22:00 AM
“How much do you know about me?” Mary went to the mirror and reapplied her lipstick, she smacked her lips together and turned to Sunny.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 20, 2018, 04:29:10 AM
"Uh, not til they're done," Chris said, putting his own hand over the doorknob to stop her.

"Seems like the easiest way. Work my way from Western to Eastern Europe, go down to Africa, over to Australia, up to Asia, then back to the states," she shrugged and took a drink of her beer.

"Oh," Ferris nodded, wondering if that had anything to do with the girls. "Hey, do you know any witches?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 20, 2018, 04:35:10 AM
Sunny raised an eyebrow. "Enough to know that I, or anyone else, shouldn't have to walk on eggshells around you, even though you apparently expect it. Come on." Sunny turned and opened the door.

Cole nodded. "Sounds reasonable."

"Witches? Uh, I think there's a Wiccan club on campus." He turned to Ferris curiously. "First mermaids, now witches. Are you gonna ask about a Bigfoot next?" he joked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 20, 2018, 04:41:45 AM
“What exactly are you implying? That I’m conceited? How dare you say that about me.” Mary’s brows knitted together, her heart beating fast. Although she thought of herself having a hard exterior she was sensitive. “That’s... hurtful Sunny.”

Addie awkwardly averted her eyes, and stepped to the side of Chris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 20, 2018, 05:25:00 AM
"They'll be done soon," Chris told her, smiling again.

"I think so," Clemence leaned her head back against the wall and sighed.

"I might," Ferris grinned at Andrew. "So...do you know anything about Bigfoot?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 20, 2018, 05:33:07 AM
"I didn't say you were conceited. Just sensitive. If you don't want to be told 'I told you so,' don't make bad decisions." Sunny shrugged, as if to say, That's not much problem, and opened the door, nudging Chris. "Hey, we're all good in here."

Cole smiled. "It'd be a hell of an adventure, that's for sure."

Andrew laughed at that. "Other than there's a TV show about finding them, no, not really."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 20, 2018, 05:44:06 AM
“Not good.” Mary brushed her shoulders with Addie’s and faced Sunny. “As opposed to not doing anything fun? That’s just typical of you to say that.” Mary clenched her jaw, her head was still messed up.

Addie stumbled slightly from Mary’s push. “Damn.” She muttered with a chuckle.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 20, 2018, 06:06:42 AM
"Uh.." Chris looked at Sunny and Mary in confusion, then shrugged to Addie. "All yours," he said, stepping out of the way.

"That's all I want in life, an adventure," Clemence closed her eyes for a moment. "Tell me something cool about you."

"Hm," Ferris hummed as he nodded, looking up at the sky.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 20, 2018, 07:21:46 AM
"She's just pissy because I dared to suggest that'd been a bad idea," Sunny explained to Chris. It wasn't like she wanted to be a bossy killjoy, but at home, Sunny was the oldest of four other children, the youngest being three. And guess whose summers the past few years had been spent watching over her siblings? The part of her personality that was used to having to organize, nurture, and occasionally scold people was hard to switch off.

Cole paused, thinking. Was there anything cool about him? "I, uh, went to high school with a kid that later went to the Olympics."

"You're really into myths and cryptids, huh?" Andrew said after a while. That was dangerous for Ferris. If he got too close to home and ended up mauled by a werewolf, Andrew wouldn't know what to do. Lady Snake had given him a healing salve for that reason, but would it work on a regular human? He wasn't sure, and didn't want to push it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 20, 2018, 07:33:05 AM
Mary huffed and looked at them both. “Whatever, you guys are jerks.” She slid her jacket on and passed them all and went to sulk with her previous companions. She grabbed another bottle and drank it, she was indeed sensitive and she couldn’t help it she had hoped that Sunny would get her but obviously not she thought.

Addie’s eyes widened and shook her head. “I’m... good now.” After peeping st the room she closed it again. “Does this happen all the time to you guys?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 20, 2018, 08:10:12 AM
Chris blinked a few times and then shrugged in response to Addie. "I think drunk Mary is just sensitive," he said, shaking his head.

Clemence raised her eyebrow at him. "That's not really about you," she smirked a bit. "Come on, there's got to be something that's happened to you in your life. Like, I just learned recently how to shoot a gun. I'm pretty good at it, too."

"I guess," Ferris shrugged. "Dunno, I think it's interesting. There's lots of stuff out there we don't know about."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 20, 2018, 08:21:12 AM
Sunny sighed and nodded. "Yeah, no kidding."

"There's not anything interesting about me." Cole shrugged. "Where'd you learn to shoot?"

"There definitely is. Who knows what's all out there," Andrew said. He took another swig of his beer.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 20, 2018, 08:28:28 AM
Addie’s arms shrugged and then dropped to her side. “Forget about it. Come on you guys, beer pong!” She beconed them downstairs, back the the ruckus. “By the way, what the hell did you do in there? It looks like you flooded the room.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 20, 2018, 08:34:44 AM
Chris raised his eyebrows, but then smiled at Sunny and held his hand out. "Wanna be my partner?" he asked.

"Taught myself," Clemence shrugged and sipped her drink. "There's gotta be something interesting about you. What's your favorite color?"

Ferris sighed and leaned back again. "You really think so?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 20, 2018, 08:39:12 AM
"We tried to clean up, but I couldn't find a mop. Sorry about that," Sunny said to Addie, and then smiled at Chris and took his hand. "Yeah, I'll be your partner."

"Blue," Cole answered. "I like blue."

(Good job, Cole. Way to make conversation.)

Andrew nodded. "Yeah, of course I do. What do you think?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 20, 2018, 09:06:51 AM
"We're gonna kill it," Chris grinned and lead her down the stairs after Addie.

"What kind of blue? Ocean blue, sky blue, navy blue?" Clemence raised an eyebrow.

[he's doing great]

"I know for sure there's some things, but I dunno about other stuff," Ferris shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 20, 2018, 09:07:39 AM
Addie simply just laughed. “She’s bonkers man, no sweat.” She shook her head and patted her arm. (Forever alone.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 20, 2018, 11:45:24 AM
"She's drunk. She'll get over it." Sunny shrugged. Maybe she'd been a bit harsh, but she truly was not going to baby the other mermaid if she made bad drunken decisions.

"Maybe I like all blues equally." Cole raised an eyebrow, mirroring her expression.

Andrew cracked a half smile. "I don't think you could've made that more vague if you tried."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 21, 2018, 10:09:49 AM
"Maybe we should ask her to play pong with us?" Chris suggested, a little bit worried now.

"Oh, you're one of those people," Clemence looked him up and down once before nodding.

Ferris met his eyes for a second and smiled slightly, just a quirk of his lip. "Can't go revealing all my secrets, you know. You can't live all over without seeing some stuff."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 21, 2018, 10:24:43 AM
Mary ran her fingers through her hair, a cigarette in her other hand. She had mellowed out with her new companions.

“Hey more the merrier.” Addie called out, she gently threw the ball into the closest to her and clapped her hands.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 21, 2018, 01:53:04 PM
(I have no idea how to play beer pong. Just fyi.)

Sunny shrugged. "Maybe. She might throw another hissy fit."

"What's that supposed to mean?" Cole asked with another smirk.

"Man of mystery, huh?" Andrew sipped his beer.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 21, 2018, 02:12:42 PM
[here's my basic knowledge: you have a long table and you have cups in a triangle on either end. you have two ping pong balls and four players (two on each team) and the teams take turns trying to toss the pong balls into cups of whats supposed to be beer but no one ever actually uses beer they just put water in cuz it doesn't waste the precious alcohol and you try and make the ball into the other teams cups and if you make it they take the cup away (or drink whats in it if its alcohol)]

"Or not," Chris shrugged and then leaned into Sunny slightly with a grin. "Hope you're good at this," he said, nodding to the pong table.

"Whatever you want it to mean, Cole Who Drinks A Lot," Clemence grinned behind her bottle as she took a drink. "So, you really don't dance?"

"I guess," Ferris shrugged and laid back some, putting his hands behind his head. "I mean, I'm pretty open about most stuff."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 22, 2018, 05:05:25 AM
Addie threw it gently threw it in the back row and clapped her hands with her partner.

Mary shook her head as she put out her cigarette, she stumbled up and headed for the main door.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 22, 2018, 01:34:33 PM
"I haven't played before," Sunny admitted. She smiled softly to herself when Chris leaned in to her. Hopefully he couldn't feel what she was right now.

Cole cracked a small smile and finished off his beer. "I can be persuaded to dance, Clemence Who Shoots A Gun."

"Yeah, I can tell," Andrew said, laying down on the grass.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 22, 2018, 01:47:07 PM
"Well, it's easy. When they're done we'll play winner, and I can teach you," Chris turned his head toward her and smiled.

"Yeah? How would one go about persuading you?" Clemence smiled a bit more now.

"Can you?" Ferris sat up a bit and looked over at Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 22, 2018, 01:53:47 PM
Sunny smiled back, looking over at him. "Okay, sounds good."

"You'd like to know, wouldn't you?" Cole said, leaning back against the wall.

Andrew nodded. "Yeah."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 22, 2018, 02:04:34 PM
"But, since they're still playing I dunno what to do," Chris shrugged and straightened up a bit.

"Well, I wouldn't be asking otherwise," Clemence leaned her head back against the wall and looked at him from the corner of her eye.

Ferris laid back again with a small sigh and watched as stars started disappearing behind a few clouds.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 22, 2018, 03:30:04 PM
"Do you think Addie has snacks?" Sunny asked. "I'm gonna go look for some snacks."

"I'd have to be drunk. Way more drunk than what I am now." Cole nodded once.

Andrew closed his eyes, breathing deeply.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 22, 2018, 03:42:44 PM
"I'm down," Chris nodded and started heading for the kitchen, brushing his hand against Sunny's as he did.

"I bet you're a better dancer now than you would be drunk," Clemence smiled and let her gaze slide over to where everyone was dancing.

Ferris turned his head to look at him, squinting a bit. What would happen when Andrew got to water now? Ferris felt beyond guilty, but he'd also saved Andrew's life and he didn't really know. That kind of sucked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 22, 2018, 03:48:16 PM
(Mer-hunter)

Sunny's cheeks blushed bright pink, so she was surprised to find that her hands weren't shaking as she looped her pinky around his.

Cole raised an eyebrow. "One more beer," he said. He hadn't decided yet what he'd meant by "one," but he was going to figure it out.

"Can I tell you something weird?" Andrew suddenly asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

Chris hesitated for a second, then let the rest of his fingers lace with hers. He glanced back and smiled, still pushing through people toward the kitchen.

"I'll hold you to it," Clemence lifted her drink up in a "cheers" fashion before finishing it. "Be right back," she told him with a grin and then stepped around him to go get two more beers.

"Of course," Ferris said, turning onto his side a bit to better listen to Andrew.

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 22, 2018, 03:59:29 PM
Sunny smiled back, her heart racing. Did he seriously like her? Was he serious about holding her hand? And he wasn't pulling away? What even was this?

Cole watched Clemence as she walked away. He was definitely rethinking his decision to dance. Maybe if he hurried, he could down enough tequila shots to pass out, and he wouldn't have to.

"I went swimming yesterday," Andrew began. He hesitated. Ferris was going to think he was crazy, that was for sure.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 22, 2018, 04:06:10 PM
Chris finally reached the kitchen, and started to look around for something to eat. There were some chips, which he was definitely down for. He let go of Sunny's hand to go grab some and then turned back to look at her.

Clemence came back not too long after and held an open beer out to him. "You look like you're full of regret," she commented, taking a sip of hers. She was definitely very buzzed. Maybe even further than buzzed.

"Oh," Ferris said, trying not to look too worried. He couldn't make it seem like he knew anything, but he also didn't want Andrew to think he didn't care about what he was saying. "How was it?"

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 23, 2018, 01:53:48 AM
Sunny noticed a bunch of bananas that had been shoved aside, and so she broke one off and peeled it.
"Are you having fun?" she asked as she turned back toward Chris.

"Always am." Cole shrugged and took a drink. If he was already over sharing, there was no telling what he was going to say after this next beer. But he'd get to that later; right now, he didn't want to think.

"It was fine." Andrew closed his eyes. Except apparently now I can breathe underwater. "Weird, but fine."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 23, 2018, 03:41:24 AM
"You're eating a banana?" Chris chuckled a bit. "Yeah, I'm having fun. Are you?"

Clemence hummed a bit as she leaned against the wall next to him.

"Weird how?" Ferris asked, sitting up and crossing his legs.

(We need to get Addie and Mary back in some action.)

Sunny nodded. "Yeah, I am." She smiled and took a bite of the fruit.

"What kind of dancing do you do?" Cole asked after a beat of silence.

"Well, uh. I think I have gills," Andrew said with a nod.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 23, 2018, 07:00:30 AM
(Siiiii. I got an idea. Maybe.)

Chris nodded and kept eating his chips. "I think I want water," he said, turning to find a cup.

"All kinds, but I like ballet the most," Clemence said and shrugged. "I like hip hop too, though," she added.

"Gills?" Ferris repeated, frowning a bit.

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 23, 2018, 09:15:38 AM
(Yaaas)

Sunny smiled again and reached for a can of pop. It was warm, but it would do.

"You been doing ballet for a while?" Cole said, a quarter of the way through the beer now.

He nodded again. "Yeah. Gills."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 24, 2018, 04:41:31 AM
(Okay okay)

Chris drank his water and leaned back against the counter.

"Basically my whole life," Clemence smiled slightly. "I'm taking a bit of a break from it now, though. I just do it for fun."

Ferris hesitated, studying Andrew for a moment. "Come with me," he said finally and stood up.

(It'll have to be in the next post)

(Hey Kieya, does Kira know about the plan you have for Addie?)

Sunny hesitated for a moment, but soon moved so she was standing next to him.

"Cool." Cole smiled, looking down at his feet.

Andrew raised an eyebrow at him, but stood up. "All right. Where are we going?"

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 24, 2018, 07:58:07 AM
(Ooo pls)

Chris glanced at her from the corner of his eye, before he stepped slightly closer so their arms were touching.

Clemence nodded a bit. "What did you like doing as a kid?"

"To find a bathroom. I need to show you something, " Ferris explainedas he headed inside.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 24, 2018, 08:21:00 AM
Sunny glanced up at him, worried. "Are you afraid to touch me?" she asked him.

"Umm..." Cole furrowed his brows. There must've been something he liked, right? But in his current state of mind, he could only think of one thing: "Singing along to The Wiggles. I had all their DVDs."

"O...kay then." Andrew followed after, unsure if he was prepared for whatever Ferris was going to show him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 24, 2018, 08:29:24 AM
"What?" Chris looked at her, his brows furrowed. "No, of course not. Why would I be?"

"Greg was my favorite. The yellow shirt guy?" Clemence smiled more and leaned her head back.

Ferris wove through the people, eventually reaching back to hold onto Andrew's wrist so he didn't lose him as he made his way upstairs to one of the bathrooms, which he luckily found was empty.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 24, 2018, 08:42:09 AM
"You know why." Sunny shrugged. "But I believe you. No worries."

Cole nodded. "Yeah, mine was Jeff. I used to think him falling asleep all the time was the funniest thing."

"Uh, Ferris..." Andrew began. People were starting to stretch, but he tried to ignore them. "You know I'm not a doctor, right? If it's something personal, you should probably go to a hospital or something."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 24, 2018, 08:53:36 AM
Chris tilted his head, then slipped his hand into hers. "I'm not worried about that," he said.

"You seem like a Jeff," Clemence said, eyeing him.

"No, it's not..not like that. Um, I promise," Ferris said as he went into the bathroom. "Just come here," he said.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 24, 2018, 12:23:22 PM
Sunny smiled lightly. "I'm glad."

"What's that supposed to mean, Clemence Who Shoots A Gun?" Cole asked. He tried to raise an eyebrow at her, but fine motor skills like that weren't an option for him. He was definitely drunk.

Andrew nodded and shut the door behind him. "All right, so what's up?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 24, 2018, 05:17:49 PM
Chris smiled at her and squeezed her hand before he drank some of his water.

"Like you would've fallen asleep a lot as a kid," Clemence winked at him. "How are you feeling?"

"Um," Ferris hesitated, then went over and turned the sink on. "Just give me a second, I gotta mentally prepare," he said, taking a deep breath.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 25, 2018, 05:24:30 AM
Sunny sipped the pop, lightly squeezing his hand in return.

"Good. You?" Cole smiled again, more relaxed this time.

Andrew raised an eyebrow, but nodded and went to close the door.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 25, 2018, 06:35:03 AM
Chris looked over toward the beer pong table and tugged on Sunny's hand slightly. "It looks like they're almost done," he said and straightened up to walk over there.

"I'm great," Clemence smiled back and stood up straight again.

Ferris waited until he heard the door click, then he turned back around to face Andrew. "So, um, that day when we went swimming on the beach, you..almost drowned. Do you remember that?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 25, 2018, 06:43:26 AM
"Okay, cool." Sunny threw the banana peel away, and took his hand again as they walked back over to the table.

Cole leaned against the wall, setting down his now empty bottle. "Cool."

"Yeah, I remember that." Andrew nodded, uneasy.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 25, 2018, 07:03:39 AM
Mary sat herself down on the edge of the ping pong table, her legs swimming. She smelled of cigarette smoke, and split wine.

Addie sighed after downing the beer and passed through people to go upstairs.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 25, 2018, 07:13:56 AM
"Hey, Mary," Chris smiled at her as they approached.

"That was one beer," Clemence said with an excited smirk.

"Right. Okay, so I saved you. Um...but I guess that had a side effect," he scratched the back of his head and then pointed to his neck.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 25, 2018, 07:36:52 AM
Sunny smiled softly at her. "Hey, what's up?"

"Yeah, one out of four," Cole reminded her, raising an eyebrow.

Andrew frowned. "How...no, Ferris, you're not saying - that you gave me gills. Are you high?" he asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 25, 2018, 07:41:37 AM
“Hey.” Mary nodded she nodded towards them and jumped down. “Oh. I’m ruining a game. I’m just ruining everything huh.”

Addie grunted past unfamiliar faces and without any reason she opened the door to the bathroom. Her eyes widened, and she stood there her mouth agape.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 25, 2018, 08:03:41 AM
[ps: Ferris hasn't touched water yet haha so he doesn't have a tail rn]

"What?" Chris frowned, his brow furrowing as he listened to her.

"Yeah, but you said you'd have one more beer and then we'd dance," Clemence grinned and held her hand out to him.

"No, I'm -" Ferris started to explain, but then he saw Addie watching them and his eyes widened. "What are you doing?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 25, 2018, 08:09:42 AM
(ughh h8 my life, i'm always coming in the wrong time XD)
Mary shook her head and smiled. "I'm sorry I was such a jerk tonight, um. Sorry about before."


Addie's cheeks reddened and held her hand up. "Totally ruining a moment, I'm sorry I should've knocked." She stepped out of the bathroom slowly, her face looking at the floor in embarrassment.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 25, 2018, 08:13:08 AM
"What are you talking about?" Sunny asked her, frowning.

Cole sighed. "You're lucky I keep my promises," he grumbled, taking her hand.

Andrew turned, surprised. "Oh. Hey, Addie. 'Sup?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 25, 2018, 08:24:15 AM
Chris just shook his head and smiled a bit. "You're good, Mary. You didn't do anything."

Clemence beamed at him and pulled him over to where everyone was dancing, and she was almost immediately moving with the music.

Ferris blew out some air in mild frustration. "Hey, no harm done," he said, putting on an easy-going smile again.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 25, 2018, 08:45:48 AM
"Okay." She nonchalantly shrugged and stood by their side. "I don't think we're going to find out witch like this..."


Addie chuckled awkwardly, and then she closed the door. She leaned on the wall, and closed her eyes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 25, 2018, 09:11:41 AM
"Nah, I don't think so, either." Sunny chewed her lower lip.

Cole tried to dance. Really, he did. But the rhythm of the music escaped from his mind and body every time he thought he'd found it. It was better to watch Clemence dance, he decided.

Andrew turned back to Ferris, an eyebrow raised. "Okay then. So you're not high?" he said, wanting to clarify.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 25, 2018, 09:29:39 AM
"You're still trying to find one?" Chris asked, shaking his head.

Clemence looked over at him and laughed a bit. "Here, let me help," she said and held both her hands out to him.

"No, I'm not high. I can show you how, but you have to promise not to freak out," Ferris said, his hand hovering over the faucet.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 25, 2018, 09:48:19 AM
"Yep." Mary placed her hands in the back of her pocket and swayed slightly to the music. "What if we drew her out?" She asked smacking her lips.


Addie slid down to the floor and inhaled in and out, she was way in over her head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 25, 2018, 10:11:03 AM
"How would we do that?" Sunny furrowed her brows. "We don't know anything about witches."

Cole took her hands, looking up from his feet to her face.

Andrew nodded. "Okay, I promise."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 25, 2018, 10:15:07 AM
"We could start trying to do a spell," Chris suggested jokingly. Clemence smiled gentlyat him for a moment, then started to move again. "Just follow me," she said.

Ferris nodded and took a deep breath, then turned the water on and stuck his hand under it. Within moments, he was on the floor with a tail instead of legs.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 25, 2018, 10:23:22 AM
“I was thinking more like exposing something supernatural...?” Mary looked at them and shrugged. “I dont know... I’m not one for good ideas.”

Addie heard a thump as her hands were on the floor. She brushed it off, just thinking it was the loud music and people jumping. However, she felt a trickle of water on the floor. Curiously, she turned her head and her brows furrowed with a moments of hesistation she slowly bent further down to see the slit between the floor and the door.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 25, 2018, 10:57:27 AM
Sunny thought about that for a moment. "Like, just touching water and flopping over to the dance floor with our tails?"

Cole waited a moment to see how Clemence was moving, and hesitantly joined in.

Andrew instinctively backed away, his eyes wide. Somehow, the sight of Ferris with a fish tail was familiar - and now, he supposed he knew why.
"Oh," was the only word to come out of his mouth.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 25, 2018, 11:02:19 AM
"Sounds like a good plan," Chris raised an eyebrow.

Clemence smiled wider when he joined in. "See? You're getting it! Just move with the music," she told him and danced slightly closer.

Ferris was reaching for a towel to start trying to dry off, and was patting down his tail already. "So, this is um, I guess where the gills came from. I guess if a mermaid - or man - kisses you, that's what happens? Or maybe just saves you from dying? I'm not really sure, but I didn't know that'd happen just from giving you CPR. I actually don't know really anything about this stuff, other than we go kinda crazy when the moon's out and I can swim really fast and I think one time a fish said hi to me but I'm not really sure but-" Ferris realized he was rambling and took a deep breath. "You can't tell anyone."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 25, 2018, 11:07:24 AM
“See sometimes it’s hard to get if you’re being sincere or not.” Mary chuckled and grinned. “But I wouldn’t rule it out.”

Addie’s eyes widened and her throat struggled a gasp. She was mesmerised and also flabbergasted. She quickly got back up and with all that confusion she held onto the bannister to get a sense of what’s happened.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 25, 2018, 11:26:49 AM
"It'll be a new dance move. The Struggling Mermaid," Sunny suggested, cracking a small smile.

"Easier said than done," Cole mumbled. He didn't shy away when she came closer.

Andrew managed a short, tense laugh. "Right, because people will believe me if I did tell them."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 25, 2018, 01:40:37 PM
"Sounds lit," Chris grinned as well.

"Put your hands here," Clemence said and moved his hands to her waist.

Ferris laughed nervously as well and continued trying to dry himself off.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 25, 2018, 03:16:54 PM
Cole nodded, pulling her closer automatically. Clemence was warm. He liked that about her.

"I think I remember this," Andrew said quietly as Ferris dried off. "But you acted so normal, I just assumed I'd been hallucinating."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 25, 2018, 03:56:42 PM
She moved her hands up his arms and continued dancing, looking up toward him. "It's not so hard, right?" She asked, not having to practically shout anymore because they were so close.

Ferris paused and then looked up at Andrew. "I didn't want you to freak out, and I didn't know if I could trust you. But...I do."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 26, 2018, 12:13:47 AM
“Gosh I’ve been third wheeling all night.” Mary chuckled as she swayed to the music.

Addie looked downstairs and then looked at the trio and her eyes widened. She rushed downstairs and stared at their faces. Of course! She knew their faces because she swam to catch up with them. “You... oh my...”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 26, 2018, 04:27:16 AM
"What's up?" Sunny asked Addie, and absently ran her thumb over Chris's knuckles. Did she know this girl from somewhere? Addie didn't look familiar to her.

Cole shrugged. "To me, it is. I'm not good at any type of dancing."

"Oh." Andrew nodded once. "Yeah, no, I won't tell anyone."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 26, 2018, 04:38:09 AM
Mary stood with her arms crossed and purses her lips. “What’s got you troubled.”

“It’s you... both of you. In the water...” Addie held onto Mary and looked at her then Sunny. “You’re not... human... are you?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 26, 2018, 04:48:10 AM
Sunny raised an eyebrow. "I think you need to go lie down," she said. "Of course we're human, Addie."
But were they? Technically, she was right now; she had legs and lungs and walked on land. But did they switch between being humans and being mer, or were they just mer who could look like a human?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 26, 2018, 04:51:19 AM
Chris frowned and reach out to touch Addie's arm. "Where's your room? You should definitely lie down," he said.

Clemence tilted her head. "You're doing fine," ahe assured him.

"Thanks," Ferris smiled at him appreciatively.

(Byebye for an hour and 15, my prof gives us extra credit if we give him our phones during class lol)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 26, 2018, 05:04:40 AM
Mary held onto tightly and held her up. “Damn, shes shaking...” She muttered to Sunny.

“No. You have to explain what’s going on. I’ve seen you swimming with tails!” She exclaimed regaining her footing. “I’m not crazy. I-I’ll prove it!”
(I’m going out tonight so I’ll catch up tomorrow!:)))
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 26, 2018, 09:47:22 AM
(I'll be at work until 5)

"Addie, come on, that's not true." Sunny took a step back, nervous. Hopefully she wouldn't try dumping water all over her here, in public.

Cole nodded, trying to focus on his footwork. "Thanks."

"Yeah, no problem." Andrew smiled back, a tiny one, and went to go find another towel.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 26, 2018, 10:51:45 AM
Chris raised his eyebrows. "Yeah, Addie, that's not possible," he said insistently.

Clemence let go of his arm with one hand and used it to tilt his chin up. "Just keep your eyes on mine, you're focusing on your feet too much."

Once Ferris had patted his tail down as much as he possibly could, it transformed back into legs and he sighed with relief. [I know we said before that their clothes usually get ruined but I don't wanna deal with that so I'ma just say he has clothes lmao]
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 26, 2018, 11:11:27 AM
"I can't see where I'm putting them if I'm looking you in the eyes," Cole said in protest, glancing down at them again.

(Fine by me, haha.)

Andrew shook his head slightly when the tail turned back into legs. First witches, then werewolves, now this. "Unreal," he said to himself.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 26, 2018, 11:21:54 AM
"If you keep watching your feet, it'll mess you up even more," Clemence laughed softly as she watched his expression.

"You're telling me," Ferris said as he stood back up.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 26, 2018, 10:58:31 PM
“So you don’t mind that if I do a little experiment then?” Addie had stumbled back and grabbed a near enough empty glass of alcohol. “Little spill on the skin?” She was pushed back into Mary and spilled it all over her shirt.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 27, 2018, 03:15:07 AM
"You're crazy!" she snapped at Addie. Sunny knew they only had seconds, so she was quick to start pulling Mary towards the bathroom. "Come on, let's get you cleaned up."

Cole frowned. "Where do I go with them?" he asked. "Just tell me where they're supposed to go."

"When did that happen?" Andrew said as they exited the bathroom.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 27, 2018, 05:56:18 AM
Addie stood back her mouth agape in shock. “I-I didn’t mean to do that.” She replied rushing towards the girls.

Mary hastened and started to push people out of the way. “This will draw out a witch for sure. And maybe haters that may want to harpoon me.” She said with gritted teeth, she knew if she started to rub the alcohol it would only make it worse speed up the process.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2018, 07:09:09 AM
Chris quickly followed after the three girls and grabbed Addie's wrist to stop her. "Maybe just give them a minute," he said, shaking his head at her.

"Not on mine," Clemence laughed a bit. "Cole, there's no right way for this. Just do what feels natural."

"Uh...a few weeks ago? Maybe a couple months?" Ferris said, walking out with him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 27, 2018, 07:28:42 AM
"I don't think anyone at this party has harpoons," Sunny said as she followed behind. She still wasn't convinced that a witch was even at this party, but who knew?

"It doesn't feel natural. That's my problem." Cole frowned and suck another glance down at his feet.

Andrew paused. "And it happens every time you get wet? Even a little bit?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2018, 07:31:45 AM
"You want to stop?" She asked with a small smile.

"Yeah, just one drop of water does it," Ferris said, ruffling his hair up a bit.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 27, 2018, 07:48:30 AM
“No of course not, but as soon as they know they’ll be out with their pitchforks too.” Mary opened the bathroom door and stomped pulled out a couple out. “Sorry boyfriend problems.” She grabbed the towel that was there and started to dry herself off. “Ugh! This is damp.”

Addie looked down at his grip and pulled back her hand. “I know what I saw that time in the sea. I know that they’re mermaids.” She started to follow them again.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 27, 2018, 07:53:34 AM
Sunny closed the door, then turned to help Mary dry off. In her haste, she'd forgotten to lock the door. "How much longer do you have?" she asked Mary, looking for another towel. Maybe they just needed to carry extra towels with them everywhere they went.

Cole shrugged. "I don't care. I just don't want to step all over your feet."

"Huh." Andrew thought about that for a moment. "So, do you ever wash your hands?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2018, 08:07:32 AM
"Just, chill out for a sec," Chris said, trying his best not to sound frustrated as he followed Addie.

"You won't," Clemence said. "Don't worry about your feet, we can just..." she paused and moved a little closer, putting her arms around his shoulders.

Ferris nodded. "I mean, yeah, but I'm very careful about when I go to the bathroom."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 27, 2018, 08:38:46 AM
Mary scrambled for tissue paper anything that could get her dry. She noticed her scales appearing on her lower abs. “Only seconds.” She cursed under her breath and continued to dry herself.

Addie shook her head and pushed through the crowds and looked back to see Chris. She had to know, that she wasn’t crazy.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 27, 2018, 10:54:27 AM
Sunny was very careful not to touch the liquid herself as she worked. "Past the point of no return, you think?"

Cole hesitated for a second before wrapping his arms further around her waist.

"Oh, okay." Andrew nodded. "That's crazy. That's, like, actually insane."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

Mary shut her eyes as she felt herself transform. “Not again...” she groaned as she sat on the floor.

Addie had her hand on the door handle, scepticle to open the door. Hesitant, scared but curious. She quickly opened the door and her mouth dropped again. “It’s... shi... you’re...”

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2018, 11:08:08 AM
"Shit," Chris said as he followed after Addie. He blocked the doorway from behind her as best he could to keep anyone else from seeing Mary. "Just go in there," he said, pushing her slightly into the bathroom so he could try and shut the door.

Clemence relaxed slightly and leaned her head against his shoulder. The music didn't fit their dancing, but she didn't care. Cole was sweet, and she was drunk.

"Trust me, I felt like I was losing my mind the first time it happened," Ferris chuckled. It felt nice to talk to someone about it other than Sunny, Mary, or the werewolves. Sunny and Mary obviously understood, but there was only so much to be said to one another about the situation and Chris and Cole had their own problems.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 27, 2018, 11:38:58 AM
"And could someone lock the door, please?" Sunny asked, as politely as she could. She was trying not to freak out and snap at people - especially not at Chris - but this was exactly the type of situation that made her bossiness come out. She dabbed at Mary's tail some more.

(Cole is only sweet when he's intoxicated, lol.)

Cole sighed softly. It felt good to hang out with someone outside the gang. Granted, it was definitely nice to have sort-of friends to commiserate about his problems with, but he appreciated spending time with someone who didn't know he was a monster. Someone who had no idea.

"I bet, yeah." Andrew shook his head. "Damn."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 27, 2018, 11:55:23 AM
Mary’s tail flapped on the floor as she pursed her lips. “Welcome to the party.” Sarcasm was laced in her voice as she kept wiping her tail.
Addie managed to finally lock the door and shut her mouth. She slowly approached them, and knelt down to slowly touch her tail. “You were the mermaids I saw... this tail I remember it.” She finally placed her hand on top of her tail, and with that Mary snapped her tail.
“Woah hey, this is all your doing. Don’t make it any more worse.”  She growled looking away from her, she had felt this burning rage within her that seemed to be frequent tonight.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2018, 12:02:08 PM
Chris bit his lip, then went over to help Sunny try and dry Mary off so Sunny didn't get anything wet on her.

Eventually the song transitioned into the next and Clemence stepped back slightly. She studied Cole's face and bit her lip, unsure what to say.

"But, um, I'm sorry about the whole, you know," Ferris pointed to his neck.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 27, 2018, 01:10:32 PM
Sunny backed up when Mary slapped her tail. "How'd you see us?" she asked Addie.

Cole smiled lightly. "Your hair smells nice," he told her.

"Oh. At least I know where they came from." Andrew shrugged, and decided not to mention that other people in the rec center pool may or may not have seen them, and he didn't know what to do about it. He doubted Lady Snake would have any idea, as young as she was.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2018, 01:37:43 PM
"Oh, thanks," Clemence smiled up at him. "Um, so does your shirt."

Ferris nodded and smiled slightly. "Want anything to drink?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 27, 2018, 02:01:11 PM
"Do you wanna get out of here?" Cole asked her.

Andrew shook his head. "Nah, I'm good."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2018, 03:28:24 PM
"Yeah," Clemence nodded and took his hand in hers to leave the crowd of dancers.

"Okay," Ferris nodded. "I'm gonna just grab some water."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 27, 2018, 11:16:58 PM
Addie wiped away the water spalashdd in her face and slowly passed her another toilet roll. “I swim in the sea everyday, and almost every other week I see those-these colours.” She paused, in disbelief she looked up to them. “I always try to swim closer, but I guess you guys are quicker.”

Mary scoffed as her tail disappeared. “So you’re stalker then.” She looked up at Sunny and Chris as she stood. “What do we do with her?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 28, 2018, 04:01:19 AM
Sunny shrugged and leaned into Chris. They'd been caught. They hadn't been careful enough, and now someone else knew what they were. Addie could use this information and way she wanted. Who knew what she was going to do to them?

"I can't drive," Cole said as they headed to the door. "I'd probably get us killed."

Andrew nodded and went over to grab two water bottles for them. He figured Ferris wouldn't want to stick his hand in the partially melted ice.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 28, 2018, 05:21:33 AM
Chris put his arm around Sunny's waist and frowned at Addie. "Well, what do you plan to do now that you know?" He asked.

"We can walk," Clemence shrugged as she reached the door and went outside. It wasn't too cold at all, so she headed on down the steps and turned to him. "Where to, though?"

Ferris smiled gratefully when Andrew returned, and something in his chest felt warm. Which was dumb, so he tried to ignore it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 28, 2018, 05:32:06 AM
Mary tied her hair up, with her teeth clenched. She used her forearm and pinned up against the door. “Yeah what you going to do?” She asked creating a bubble with her other hand and drew it closer to her head. “What are the chances are you going to tell anybody if something happened to you... like say you drowned?”

Addie choked as she tried to pry Mary’s arm from her throat. She felt the blood rushing to her head. She had no one to tell, would anyone believe her? She shook her head and flailed trying to get away.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 28, 2018, 07:02:43 AM
"Mary!" Sunny exclaimed, pulling her away from Addie. "Calm down, will you?"

Cole shrugged. "Um...wanna go to the beach?"

Andrew dried it off as best he could before handing it to Ferris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 28, 2018, 07:11:21 AM
Mary clenched her fist, and got close to her face. "I guess you get to live today..."


Addie gasped and sputtered, she shook her head. "I-I won't tell I swear."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 28, 2018, 07:24:28 AM
Chris frowned at Mary and went over to check on Addie. "You okay?" he said, looking concerned.

"Sure," Clemence smiled and took his hand again to go walk down toward the beach.

"Thanks," Ferris said and opened it up, pulling a reusable straw out to drink the water through.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 28, 2018, 07:31:40 AM
Addie looked up feeling nauseous from lack of oxygen. She finally nodded and leaned on the door. "How long have you kept this secret?"


Mary glared at her and paced up and down the bathroom. "Look you know now, we're not answering any questions. You know too much already."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 28, 2018, 03:17:43 PM
"What makes you think we can trust you?" Sunny asked Addie, narrowing her eyes. Addie could not find out about the werewolves.

Cole smiled back, a natural, easy smile. Once they reached the beach, he let go of her hand to take off his shoes before stepping on to the sand.

"Smart." Andrew cracked a small smile and opened his water bottle. He hadn't gotten nearly as intoxicated as he'd planned to tonight, but he wasn't in the mood to now.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 29, 2018, 04:06:52 AM
“Who have I got to tell?” Addie stuttered and held her hands up. “I-I have no one to tell i swear!” She was already crying from the depletion of oxygen, and from shock from all this.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 29, 2018, 06:51:02 AM
"Hey, maybe we should just calm down a second," Chris said and stepped over closer to Addie to make sure she was alright while looking pointedly at Sunny and Mary. He turned to Addie and put a hand on her back. "Just take a deep breath," he instructed.

Clemence pulled her shoes off as well and rolled the bottom of her jeans up as best she could before she started walking down the sand toward the water, just to stand in it enough to feel the waves.

"I try," Ferris shrugged and sipped his water.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 29, 2018, 06:58:38 AM
Addie shook as she leaned into him more and hyperventilated. “Pl-please don’t kill me. I swear I won’t tell anyone.” She held onto him tightly.

Mary tutted and shook her head. “She’s a snail. She won’t tell anyone. Who would believe her?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 29, 2018, 07:13:29 AM
"We're not gonna kill you," Sunny said to Addie, glancing pointedly at the other mermaid. "We just can't have anyone find out, you know? Who knows what they'd do to us."

Cole smiled again as the tide rushed over his ankles. He suddenly tensed when he remembered the gills development, as he'd decided to call it, and he hoped to whatever deity might be listening that gills didn't work by the same rules as the mer's tails. Then again, he'd showered and not felt or seen anything, so maybe he was in the clear.

Andrew sighed softly, glancing around. "So, I lost track of Trent. So now I gotta go find where he passed out."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 29, 2018, 07:23:49 AM
Chris rubbed Addie's back to try and help calm her down, and nodded in agreement with Sunny. "I'm sure you won't say anything though, right?" he said to Addie with the slightest smile.

"Do you like being here?" Clemence asked, turning toward Cole.

"Oh, yeah, I should probably figure out where my friends went," Ferris said, looking around for a second.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 29, 2018, 09:05:10 AM
Addie nodded as she tried to regain her breathing. She faced Sunny and Mary, “I won’t say anything if anything... I’ll find a way to help conceal your secret or just help...” she placed her hand on Chris’ forearm and smiled upward to him.

Mary paced up and down the bathroom. “What a night. This couldn’t have gone any worse.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 29, 2018, 11:45:46 AM
Sunny smiled lightly, hiding the little spike of jealousy that went through her. She and Chris weren't a thing until they decided otherwise, she reminded herself. "Thanks, Addie."

"At the beach? Yeah, yeah I do." Cole cleared his throat. "I learned how to swim in the ocean."

"Those girls and the one jock guy, right?" Andrew said. Before he could stop himself, he asked, "Are they...like you, too?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 29, 2018, 01:19:16 PM
Chris smiled reassuringly at Addie before he stepped away slightly and let go of her.

"Really?" Clemence smiled slightly. "That's pretty cool."

Ferris coughed a bit, trying to figure out the best answer. "No, they aren't," he finally said and shook his head. Chris wasn't at least, so he wasn't really lying.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 30, 2018, 03:20:46 AM
"So, we're all cool?" Sunny asked, looking around between everyone. "We can all go home and be fine?"

Cole nodded. "Where are you from, again?" he asked her. "I think I already asked, but I forgot."

"Oh, okay. Do they know, at least?" Andrew wondered if he should tell Clemence about this. Yeah, he'd promised Ferris he wouldn't, but then again, their job was to protect the town. It wouldn't hurt for her to know there was more than one kind of mythical creature walking around, right?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 30, 2018, 06:17:15 AM
"Hopefully," Chris agreed and looked at the door behind him.

"New Orleans," Clemence told him and kicked at the water a bit. "Luckily I didn't inherit a Cajun accent."

"No," Ferris shook his head. It'd be better if Andrew didn't go asking them any questions, so he wouldn't find out.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 30, 2018, 07:14:05 AM
Addie nodded and opened the door. "Party is over anyway." Her voice was rusty and shook her head. "Hope you had a good one you guys."


Mary walked out of the bathroom first, "call me first when you find a witch? See you guys, I'm gonna head back. Don't do anything I wouldn't do okay you guys?" She kissed both their cheeks and walked away.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 30, 2018, 10:25:00 AM
"Yeah, we'll call," Sunny promised her, although she still wasn't sure how to begin searching for one.

Cole cracked a half smile, thinking of his own Southern drawl. "Hey, accents aren't all bad. They're actually sexy."

"Oh. All right." Andrew nodded once and clapped him on the shoulder. "Well, I gotta go find Trent. See you around, dude."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 30, 2018, 10:30:34 AM
"Uh, yeah," Chris agreed, rubbing the back of his head.

"You ever heard a Cajun accent, Cole? Nothing's sexy about those," Clemence shook her head and laughed softly.

"See you," Ferris said and smiled at Andrew for a split second before he saw Mary walking out. He figured the others would be wherever she was, so he started heading where she'd come from.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 30, 2018, 12:38:00 PM
Sunny waited until Mary and Addie had both left before she sank down to the floor. They'd been caught. They'd been caught. What were they going to do now? What was Addie going to do? Her mind was reeling.

"They're not too different from mine," Cole said, digging his toes into the sand. "Just slower. Sexier."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 30, 2018, 02:56:54 PM
Chris turned around and saw Sunny on the ground. He immediately knelt down beside her and put his hand on her arm. "Hey, it's okay. I don't think Addie'll do anything," he said gently.

Clemence laughed a bit, and then put on her best Louisiana Cajun voice. "Well I did pick up a bit o' it, I ain't a couyon," she said, putting her hands in her back pockets.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 30, 2018, 03:59:22 PM
"I know, and I don't think so either, but  I just..." She sighed. "I don't like it."

Cole chuckled, sliding his hands into his own pockets. "You don't have to try to be sexy, Clemence Who Shoots A Gun."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 30, 2018, 04:18:32 PM
"It'll be okay," Chris said gently and sat down beside her.

"Thank god, I couldn't have done that much longer," Clemence smiled and sidestepped closer to him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 03:11:29 AM
Sunny leaned her head against Chris's shoulder, closing her eyes. "She can't find out about you and Cole," she murmured.

"Yeah, it's hard. I used to try talking more like a Yankee when I was in college. Gave up after a week or two." Cole shifted his weight so their sides were touching.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2018, 03:13:24 AM
"She won't," Chris assured her as he put his arm around her.

"You really are just a southern boy, huh?" Clemence smiled and nudged his shoulder with hers.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 04:40:00 AM
Sunny took a deep breath. Chris smelled nice. Clean, masculine. "Do you want to do anything?" she asked him as she opened her eyes to look at him.

Cole smiled back and nodded. "Born and raised."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2018, 04:43:04 AM
"Kinda just wanna go home," Chris said, crinkling his nose slightly beforehe smiled at her.

Clemence turned to face him more, tilting her head as she studied his face. This was okay, right? Hanging out with someone? It's not like she couldn't keep him away from danger, being what she apparently was. This was okay.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 05:11:32 AM
"Me too." Sunny smiled and pushed herself to her feet.

Cole met her gaze, and his smile softened. "What?" he asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2018, 06:34:03 AM
Chris stood as well and immediately took her hand to go out.

"You're cute," she said and her lips tilted up in a smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 07:35:09 AM
She smiled when he took her hand, and paused when they got to the door. "Ferris drove himself, right?" she said, mostly to herself.

"So are you." Cole smiled again, nudging her shoulder with his.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2018, 07:49:24 AM
"Yeah, I think so," Chris nodded. "Do you need a ride home?"

"So?" Clemence smiled more and tilted her head. "Gonna do anything about it?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 31, 2018, 07:58:48 AM
(So provocative man.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 08:00:07 AM
"I'd appreciate it." Sunny nodded and opened the door. The cool night air was refreshing, and she took a deep breath of it as she stepped outside.

Cole smirked and kissed Clemence softly on the lips. Was this even okay? Should he even be kissing someone who didn't know what he was? It wasn't like he always had perfect control of himself, especially not near the full moon. But it was okay for now, he guessed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 31, 2018, 08:01:27 AM
(So jealous I’d kiss Cole)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2018, 08:04:21 AM
Chris followed her out and pulled his keys from his pocket, heading over toward where he'd parked.

Clemence kissed him back just as softly, then slowly pulled away and bit her lip. "Not bad, Cole Who Drinks a Lot" she said with a small grin.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 08:20:42 AM
(Lol Kieya XD He's still pretty emotionally unavailable, though.)

Sunny waited until they were both in the car, and driving away from the party, before she asked, "So, what are we? Or do you even want to talk about it now?"

"I'm better at it sober." Cole chuckled and ran a hand through his hair. "You're not bad yourself, Clemence Who Shoots A Gun."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2018, 08:26:19 AM
[This pairing is just gonna bring pain]

Chris blinked a few times. "What do you mean?" He finally asked, looking genuinely confused. [I love being a dumb boy]

Clemence watched the movement of his hand for a second, then looked out toward the ocean again. "My feet are cold," she finally said and backed up from the water.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

The drama will give me so much joy)

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 08:34:17 AM
(I always imagined Cole as more of a flirty, non-committal type anyway. So really any pairing with him will bring pain :3 )

Sunny blushed and turned to look out the window. Of course he didn't like her. Of course. She should've known better than to ever entertain the possibility. "Nevermind."

"Yeah, mine too. Cole walked out of the tide with her, then said, "I can call an Uber for you if you want to go home."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

[lmaoooo]

"Wait, hey, no, what do you mean?" Chris said and reached over, touching her arm briefly.

"How are you getting home?" Clemence asked, raising an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 09:00:13 AM
Sunny turned to look at him, then back out the window. "Nothing, Chris. It's not a big deal."

"I haven't figured that out yet." Cole shrugged. "Haven't even decided if I'm going home, actually."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2018, 09:09:25 AM
Chris sighed and leaned back a bit, unsure of what to say. "I do like you," he finally said, glancing at her. "I think you're cool, and nice."

"Where are you going to go?" Clemence frowned a bit and turned toward him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 11:09:35 AM
"But...?" Sunny added, since she figured it was coming anyway. She raised an eyebrow at him.

Cole shrugged again. "I'll figure that out when I get there."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2018, 11:17:39 AM
"Do we have to like, be anything? Right now?" Chris bit his lip. "I just don't want anything to...to go wrong."

Clemence tilted her head and then shrugged. "Well, if you say so," she said and pulled her phone out. "I'll get my own uber," she told him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 01:28:12 PM
Sunny shook her head. "No, we don't. I just wasn't sure what you were thinking, that's all. I'd...I'd like to take things slow."

"Okay. Have a good night, Clemence Who Shoots a Gun." Cole smiled softly at her as he put his shoes back on.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2018, 01:33:43 PM
"Me too," Chris smiled slightly at her.

Clemence pulled her shoes on, then leaned over and kissed his cheek. "Thanks for being a good date, Cole. I'll see you later," she said and started heading out.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 02:05:23 PM
She smiled back, and for a brief moment, lightly rested her hand on his.

Cole waved as she walked away. For a few minutes, he stood on the sidewalk, thinking over the night; after a while, he decided he was okay enough to drive, and headed back to his car.

(Skip?)

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on January 31, 2018, 02:31:01 PM
(Yeeee)

Sunny sat in the science building library, chewing on the eraser of her pencil. All she could think of, though, was the ocean. Swimming in the bright blue sea.

Cole frowned at the IV inserted in his hand. Apparently he'd wrapped his car around a telephone pole and totaled it, although he couldn't remember the accident at all. Actually, he didn't remember much of anything after climbing into his car. Oh, and he had some broken bones, too. There was that problem, too.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2018, 03:11:09 PM
[COLE.]

Chris walked out of the engineering building and paused for a second to take in the sunshine, taking a deep breath. He just needed a break, he'd been in a lab all morning and was exhausted.

Clemence was sitting out on the campus lawn, reading through one of her textbooks and enjoying the weather. She glanced at her phone and sighed a bit. She'd texted Cole earlier, but hadn't heard anything. Not that she'd really expected much, but she still kind of had hoped she'd hear from him some time today.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on January 31, 2018, 09:38:08 PM
(HOT.)

Addie watched the cleaners do their job. She leaned on the wall with her cup of coffee just taking last night in. Many surprises, but in a way all good experiences she thought.

Mary had skipped her lessons that day, she had woken with a migraine and bad memories of last night. So what the hell? She on the edge of the beach, clearing her head of thoughts. But Cole kept bothering her thoughts. Shyness and pride were preventing her to contact him at all, however she felt a change to her. She fished out her phone and called him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 01:25:34 AM
After a few minutes, Sunny decided that studying was useless when she couldn't concentrate, and so she packed up her things and headed to her dorm.

Surprisingly, Cole's phone had survived the crash. It was cracked beyond repair, and he didn't know how much longer it would last, but it seemed to work okay for now. He'd seen the text from Clemence just before falling asleep, but the call from Mary woke him back up.
"Hello?" he mumbled into the phone.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 01, 2018, 01:28:13 AM
“Cole. Hey.” Mary let it lull before she chuckled. “Just wanting to check in... are you okay babe?” She asked pacing up and down the stretch of beach.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 01:34:51 AM
Chris opened his eyes in time to.see a familiar bob of hair going across campus, and he immediately smiled. He adjusted his bag on his shoulders amd jogged to catch up to Sunny. "Fancy seeing you here," he said as he fell into step beaide her.

Clemence grew frustrated with her book and pulled her phone out, pulling up Andrew's contact.
You busy tonight? We should train or something.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 02:13:48 AM
Sunny turned and smiled once she saw him. "Well hey, stranger," she laughed. "What are you up to?"

"Um....I'm as okay as I can be." Cole managed a shrug with the shoulder that wasn't broken. "How are you?"

Andrew felt his phone buzz and slid it out of his pocket. That's a good idea. I need more practice with my gun, anyway.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 01, 2018, 02:17:50 AM
Annoyed, lonely, frustrated.
“Cool, Hey is it cool if I swing by? Missed classes today and others are busy with each other. I want to get things off my chest...” her voice trailed as she started to pick her things up. “I can pick you up or something?”

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 02:21:03 AM
"Well, uh, I'm in the hospital, and they say I'm not ready to be discharged yet. But yeah, you can come swing by if you want." Cole inspected the IV again. Was there even anything in it? Painkillers, probably. At least it was his non dominant hand, he thought, but he didn't like being restrained like this.

"Just got out of class, you?" Chris asked, smiling back at her.

Sounds good, I'll see you later then Clemence texted back and packed her bag up, standing finally. She stretched her arms and started heading to her class.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 02:50:07 AM
"I tried to study for a bit." Sunny shrugged. "Didn't go over very well."

See you later. Andrew slid his phone back into his pocket and resumed working on his pottery.

"No? Well, where you headed to now?" Chris asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 01, 2018, 02:54:38 AM
Mary fished out her keys and started to run to the car, at the initial shock of learning he was in the hospital. She scoffed and tutted. “I’ll be there in a tick, hang tight.” She threw her things in the car, and first drove to the place they went for pizza before she drove to the hospital.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 03:08:26 AM
"I was thinking about going swimming, but I hadn't decided yet." She shrugged and said, "What about you? Any special plans?"

Cole responded to Clemence's text while he waited for Mary. Hey, sorry, I just now got your message. I was asleep.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 03:13:52 AM
"Nah, I'm just chilling," Chris shrugged.

Clemence glanced down at her phone and frowned a bit, then quickly texted him back. No worries, I just wanted to make sure you got home safe.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 01, 2018, 03:18:45 AM
Mary had an 18 inch pizza made before driving to the hospital, as she got closer her face started to light up and smile. She was seeing him again, and spend little time with him made her happy. One she arrived she scooped up the box and tried to track down where he was.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 03:30:28 AM
"Cool." Sunny smiled and nodded once.

Cole texted Mary his room number and replied, Thanks. I appreciate it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 01, 2018, 03:42:37 AM
Mary’s face scrunched up and came into his room. “Okay, what did you get up to with your girlfriend for you to... end up like this?” She set the pizza onto the table and sat beside him. “Were you driving?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 03:53:46 AM
"Do...you want to hang out?" Chris asked, tilting his head.

Did you make it home or wherever you were going alright? Clemence asked, leaning against the wall outside her class.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 04:33:09 AM
Sunny nodded, smiling softly again. "Yeah, that sounds good. What do you want to do?"

"Yeah, I drove home. Fell asleep at the wheel." Cole shifted his position so his body was covering his phone. "And she's not my girlfriend, Mary."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 01, 2018, 05:01:41 AM
Mary stood and purses her lips, she fluffed his pillow and opened the pizza box. “Ah, girlfriends won’t let their boyfriends on the road. Does she know you’re here?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 05:10:39 AM
"Not yet. I'll tell her soon." His phone buzzed underneath him in that moment, and Cole shifted so he could reply. "Or now, I guess. I'll tell her now."
Not really. I totaled my car and now I'm in the hospital.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 05:13:01 AM
"I mean, if you want to swim we can just go down to the beach together." Chris suggested and held up his keys.

Clemence read the text a few times before she opted out of texting back and just called him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 01, 2018, 05:24:04 AM
Mary swung her legs as she ate a slice of pizza. “Hey no take your time. Your girlfriend is your priority right?” She smiled.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 07:15:07 AM
"We don't have to swim if you don't want to," Sunny said, although she was excited at the thought of it.

Cole sighed. "Did you come here just to pull some passive aggressive shit about me taking someone on a date? Because I don't need you here if you did."
His phone buzzed again, and he glanced briefly at the screen. Clemence was calling, but he knew that as long as Mary was here, he wouldn't be able to talk to her in peace.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 07:43:47 AM
"No, going to the beach sounds fun," Chris assured her. He hesitated a second, then took her hand in his and laced their fingers together. "So, yes or yes?" He asked with a grin.

Clemence groaned when he didn't answer and quickly texted him again. I sincerely hope you didn't suddenly flatline. You drove last night?!
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 08:39:28 AM
"It's a yes from me." Sunny grinned back and lightly squeezed his hand.

Cole sent a quick reply: I waited for a bit and thought I was fine. Clearly, I was wrong.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 08:47:02 AM
Chris started walking toward the parking lot where he'd left his car.

What hospital are you at? Clemence asked, deciding she'd go over. She started heading to the bus station, since her car was still getting worked on.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 01, 2018, 08:56:05 AM
“Hey woah! I’m just being a prick sorry. I just wanted to joke about. I see you’re no mood to have some banter.” Mary stood and looked at him. “I just wanted to hang out because I guess I missed you. Sorry.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 09:53:00 AM
Sunny walked with him, growing happier and more excited with every step. Never mind the fact that she didn't have a swimsuit with her. She could just swim in her t-shirt.

Cole sighed softly. The painkillers were starting to wear off, and he figured that was contributing to his mood. Well, that, having to replace his car, and having to take time off work to heal. "I'm not in the mood for that, no," he said.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 09:58:50 AM
[just found out Clemence's name means "mild and merciful" and I just. lol.]

Chris unlocked his car and got in, turning it on. He turned the music down and looked over at her. "Do you need to stop by your dorm for anything?" he asked.

Cool, be there soon Clemence sent back as she boarded the bus. It'd take like 20 minutes-ish, so she put on a youtube video after she sat down to pass the time.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

"Um, a swim top," she said. "Do you need anything?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 10:48:10 AM
[yikes on bikes]

"Nah," he shook his head and pulled out of the parking lot to head over to Sunny's dorm.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 01, 2018, 10:56:39 AM
“I’m sorry.” Mary sighed and looked at his IV line. “Hey do you want some pizza? She asked going to his line and touching the line, letting her hand run through it until it reached his hand.

Once they got there, Sunny grabbed the first swim top she could find, and she stuffed it into her bag as she headed back out to Chris' car.

"I don't think I can eat right now, but thanks." Cole half smiled, and checked his phone again.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 11:09:20 AM
[I think kieya's tipsy lmao]

Chris waited out in the car for her, closing his eyes for a second as he enjoyed the warmth from the sun.

Clemence arrived at the hospital and got checked in and cleared to go up. She went to the second floor and found his room, then knocked on the door.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 01, 2018, 11:14:02 AM
(Dont worrygus I’m in bed now no need worry about me )

Mary’s hand stopped before she could touch his hand. She heard a knock and retracted her hand. “You don’t have to hide your texts,” She said softly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 11:27:28 AM
(Lol XD)

Sunny knocked on the passenger side window, another smile tugging at her face as she watched him.

Cole didn't answer Mary; instead, he told Clemence to come in.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 11:30:16 AM
Chris opened his eyes and smiled over at her, then unlocked the door so she could get back in. "All set?" he asked.

Clemence opened the door and paused for a second when she saw Mary standing next to him. Her brows knitted together for half a second, but then she quickly relaxed her face and walked in, closing the door behind her. "Hey, y'all," she said and half-smiled. "Mary, right? Good to see you," she said politely and then focused her attention on Cole. "How are you feeling? What'd the doctors say?"

(Dehydration is the biggest contributing factor to hangovers, since alcohol is a diuretic.)

"Yep!" Sunny grinned again and leaned back in the seat. "Thanks for going swimming with me."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 12:39:37 PM
(Yes)
 
"Sure thing," Chris smiled and headed down to the beach.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 01, 2018, 01:03:39 PM
Sunny closed her eyes, letting the sun warm her skin as he drove.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 01, 2018, 05:36:43 PM
Chris glanced over at her once in a while, and a smile crept onto his face more and more every time. He decided that sunshine suited Sunny, a lot.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 02, 2018, 03:08:44 AM
Mary smiled at the Clemence and nodded. “Hey, care for some pizza?” She asked leaning over Cole to the get the box.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 02, 2018, 06:47:37 AM
Sunny turned to look at Chris, smiling again. "What are you thinking about?" she asked, and brushed some of her hair off her face.

"I'm fine. The doctors say I broke my collarbone and my arm on my left side, and I probably have deep tissue bruising. It doesn't hurt that bad, though." Cole shrugged with his functioning arm. "It sucks my car got totaled."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 02, 2018, 06:53:59 AM
"You're beautiful," Chris said and smiled brighter.

"Damn," Clemence glanced him over, frowning. "The handyman can't fix his own car?" She tilted her head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 02, 2018, 06:56:59 AM
Mary watched them converse and smiled. "I'm guessing you managed to get him drunk last night?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 02, 2018, 07:01:58 AM
"You think so?" Sunny brightened, smiling again, and she sat up straighter in the seat.

"Not this time." Cole glanced between the girls, then said to Mary, "No, I managed to do that on my own. Like I do at every party I end up at."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 02, 2018, 07:10:56 AM
"Yeah," he nodded and focused back on the road.

"He got drunk on his own. I should've made sure you got home alright, that was my fault," Clemencr said, looking down at Cole apologetically.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 02, 2018, 07:16:58 AM
Mary held her arms up and smiled. "Last party we went to we didn't get drunk..." She chuckled and then bit her lip to stop what she was going to say next.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 02, 2018, 08:47:37 AM
"Thank you." Sunny bit her lip, then lightly touched his hand, letting him feel how happy the compliment had made her.

Cole held his good hand up. "First of all, I get myself drunk. Second, no one is responsible for me but me. Third, Mary, you got me high at the last party we went to, so I don't even want to hear it."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 02, 2018, 09:13:50 AM
Chris looked at her hand, then at her. He just smiled and turned away as he turned into the parking lot and got out, coming around to open her door.

Clemence looked between them and raised an eyebrow. "Uh...am I missing something? Are you two, like, a thing?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 02, 2018, 09:39:52 AM
Sunny smiled and thanked him as he opened her door. She slid out of the car, deciding to leave her backpack behind, and slid her swim top into the back pocket of her jeans.

Cole shook his head and cleared his throat. "No. We're not a thing."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 02, 2018, 10:10:10 AM
“I’m not sure if we’re even a friend thing to be fair...” Mary had taken upon herself to drink his juice.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 02, 2018, 10:37:56 AM
Chris followed her onto the beach, pulling his shoes off before he reached the sand.

Clemence nodded and then smiled slightly. "Well that's good, I'm not into two-timers," she said. "I'm glad you're feeling alright, Cole."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 02, 2018, 11:03:44 AM
The sand was hot, but it felt good underneath Sunny's bare feet. She smiled to herself as she and Chris walked on the beach, and once they were far enough away from the public area, she set her stuff down.

"Yeah, thanks. Appreciate it." Cole nodded once and stretched out his good shoulder.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 02, 2018, 12:50:29 PM
Chris watched her for a second, then sat down by her stuff.

(Sooo how do werewolves heal in this here storyline)
She nodded and looked over his cast. "So you're doing okay? Seems like that'd be pretty traumatic."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 02, 2018, 01:54:22 PM
(Like regular humans c: )

Sunny sat down next to him and stretched her legs out on the sand.

"So far, yeah. I can't remember the accident, and I think that helps." Cole nodded once, yawning. "I'm mainly just bored here."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 02, 2018, 02:07:53 PM
(Hmmmmm hmmmmmmm okay)

Chris put his hand over hers and tangled their fingers together. "I'm down to just hang out here while you swim," he said.

"Do you like vines?" Clemence asked, sitting on the very edge of his bed. 
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 02, 2018, 03:02:42 PM
(What? What are you thinking?)

"I will in a bit." Sunny smiled over at him, then glanced at the water, an idea forming in her mind. To Chris, though, it would probably just sound weird and trivial.

Cole smiled at that. "Yeah. I miss Vine."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 02, 2018, 03:23:01 PM
(Nah I didnt have an idea I was just wondering if they had super fast healing abilities)

Chris looked at her and tilted his head. "What are you thinking?"

"Alright, here's what we're doing," Clemence said and pulled her phone out, pulling up a vine compilation.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 02, 2018, 11:36:06 PM
Mary had stood near the window, looking out watching the ocean. She slurped her juice box whilst listening to them watching videos. Although she wasn’t alone with Cole, their presence made her comfortable not alone and that was good enough.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 03, 2018, 01:33:32 AM
"Hmm? Oh, nothing." Sunny shook her head.

Cole found himself actually laughing at the video, which was surprising. It had been a while since he'd actually laughed, and he wasn't used to the feeling anymore.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 03, 2018, 03:38:21 AM
"If you say so," he smiled and closed his eyes, enjoying the sun again.

Clemence looked at Cole from the corner of her eye every so often, and found herself laughing as well.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 03, 2018, 07:37:52 AM
After a few minutes, Sunny let go of Chris's hand to change into her swim top. A few years ago, she had figured out a way to change shirts without taking the first one off, and although removing her bra would complicate that technique, Sunny was confident she could do it - until she got her swim top and her bra knotted together.

Cole leaned back after a while, munching on some apple slices that had been left for him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 03, 2018, 08:04:04 AM
Chris didn't notice for a while, until he glanced over at sunny and raised his eyebrows. "You okay?"

Clemence made herself a little bit more comfortable on his bed and started up the next vine compilation.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 03, 2018, 01:11:00 PM
Sunny blushed bright pink and turned so the polka dotattern on her bra dip wasn't so obvious. "I, uh, got stuck," she said. One cup was hanging out of the top, the bra strap and swim top straps had gotten tangled together, and she wasn't sure where her arm was supposed to go anymore.

Cole glanced over at Mary, feeling guilty. He probably shouldn't treat her like this, he figured. After all, she had saved his life.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 03, 2018, 03:27:07 PM
"Oh," Chris said, unsure what to say. "Um, well, do... you need help?"

Clemence looked at Cole and followed his gaze, frowning slightly. What was going on between them?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 04, 2018, 05:24:31 AM
Mary rubbed her chest with her fingertips, she still  felt last nights drinks and they were resounding. She turned around and put the juice box in the bin. “Obviously I’m interrupting something between you guys. Um..” she started sliding into her coat and looked at Cole, deeply. She still wanted to talk to him, but maybe it wasn’t the right time. “Cole, phone me? When you’re less busy? Please?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 04, 2018, 05:59:21 AM
"I think...I can't untangle them while they're on me." She turned even pinker and asked, her voice small, "Would you mind turning around for a second?"

Cole nodded, looking down at his hands. "Yeah, sure. Yeah."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 04, 2018, 06:03:22 AM
"Oh, yeah, no problem," Chris said and turned his back to her, focusing his gaze on his toes.

Clemence felt like she could cut the tension between Cole and Mary with a knife, so she busied herself by looking at her phone. She hadn't really meant to make things weird, she just wanted Cole to feel a little better.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 04, 2018, 06:07:30 AM
(-ah this aaalways happens to me I’ll have to find another opening

Mary finally looked at Cole and then then briefly to Clemence. She nodded and turned to go out the door.

Addie had supervised the people clean her home, although she locked away everything valuable away she was still wary. She had tied her shoelaces and headed down the beach for a morning run. Last night for Addie was hazy, scary and albeit amazing. She was afraid of stepping into the water, after Mary’s threats she was afraid for drowning in the sea.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 04, 2018, 06:38:28 AM
(Andrew's not doing much of anything right now, either!)

Sunny quickly removed both her bra and her swim top. Untangling them was tricky, but she managed to get them separated, and then she slid her top back on.
"Okay, you're good now," she said.

Cole kept looking at his hands instead of either of the girls. He wasn't a two timer, he told himself. He and Mary weren't anything, and right now, neither were him and Clemence. And he couldn't control how either of them felt
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 04, 2018, 06:43:55 AM
Chris turned back around and then laid back, resting on his elbows to watch the water.

Clemence watched Mary go, then turned toward Cole. "I don't want to be getting in between anything," she said, frowning.

Sunny stretched back out on the sand, resting her hands behind her head.

"You're not," Cole assured her. "Really, you're not. Mary is just..."

Ferris wasn't really sure where he was going when he started walking, but he wasn't surprised to have ended up at the beach. He stayed on the sand, staring out at the open water with a faint smile.

"I wish I was like you," Chris said after a while of sitting in silence.

Clemence pursed her lips and nodded a bit. "So, there's nothing going on there?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 04, 2018, 07:34:30 AM
Addie was already in a sprint, the cold motivated to run faster. Run away from her thoughts. She had cranked her music up to the loudest it could go.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 04, 2018, 08:00:31 AM
Andrew had decided to go body boarding after he got out of class, and today had turned out to be a great day to do so.

Sunny looked over at him, knitting her brows together. "Like...you wish you were a mer?"

Cole shook his head. "No, there isn't."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 04, 2018, 08:13:31 AM
Ferris looked behind him as someone ran past, and squinted a bit. They looked kind of familiar, but he wasn't really sure.

"No, I mean, not exactly. It's just that you turn into some beautiful mythical creature everyone loves and I turn into something they make horror movies about," Chris explained, sighing. He closed his eyes and tilted his head back. He loved the sun. It was safe, and warm, and didn't turn him into a monster.

"Good. I mean, not that there's necessarily anything between us either, but that'd get kind of complicated, you know? I don't like things being complicated." Clemence shrugged and shifted a bit.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 04, 2018, 08:16:04 AM
Addie stopped suddenly, the stitch she was ignoring was hurting her exponentially. She turned off her music and she gripped her knees trying to focus breathing. 
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 04, 2018, 12:36:53 PM
Sunny reached over and wove her fingers with his. "We'll find a way to break the curse," she promised. "I know there's a way. There has to be."

"I don't, either," Cole said. He did feel bad about doing that to Mary, but he hadn't asked either of them to come over.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 04, 2018, 02:43:39 PM
Chris turned his head, his cheek resting on his shoulder as he opened his eyes to look at her. He searched her face for a moment, then smiled the smallest bit. "I believe you," he said softly.

"Glad we're on the same page with that," Clemence said and leaned back.

Ferris watched the girl and frowned, concerned. He immediately went over, bending down slightly. "Are you okay?" he asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 04, 2018, 03:11:39 PM
Sunny smiled back, a small, soft one. Never mind the fact that she didn't even know where to start. "It's gonna be okay."

"Agreed." Cole nodded and scratched at an itch on his neck.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

He nodded and sat up again. "So, swimming?" He asked.

Clemence scrolled through her social media feeds and then set her phone back down and looked over at him.

Sunny tilted her head to one side. "I thought you just wanted to hang out," she said.

Cole had closed his eyes, but he felt Clemence watching him, so he opened his eyes and looked back over at her.

"I thought you wanted to swim," Chris said, tilting his head as well to mirror her.

Clemence didn't say anything at first, because she wasn't really sure what she was thinking. "Who's gonna finish fixing my car now?" she finally asked, then smiled since she was joking.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 04, 2018, 08:06:58 PM
Chris turned his head, his cheek resting on his shoulder as he opened his eyes to look at her. He searched her face for a moment, then smiled the smallest bit. "I believe you," he said softly.

"Glad we're on the same page with that," Clemence said and leaned back.

Ferris watched the girl and frowned, concerned. He immediately went over, bending down slightly. "Are you okay?" he asked.

A startled Addie jumped slightly and fell onto the sand. She looked up at Ferris and scrambled to get her phone. “Oh hey.” She tried to avoid eye contact. “Uh... Ferris is it?” Her cheeks went red as she tried to regain normal breathing.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 05, 2018, 06:36:52 AM
"I do." Sunny nodded, looking down at her toes. "I feel bad ditching you here, though."

"Gage'll have to do it," Cole said with a chuckle. "But he does good work."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 05, 2018, 06:58:19 AM
"I'm fine," Chris assured her and smiled. "I can tan," he added. Laying down to demonstrate his point.

"Good as you?" Clemence raised an eyebrow.

"Um, yeah," Ferris nodded, still looking concerned. He searched his memory for her name, knowing he'd met her at the party, but all he could think of was Andrew. "Im sorry, remind me your name?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 05, 2018, 07:11:20 AM
“Addie, you were at my party last night? And I walked in on you with the other guy?” And saw something that I wasn’t expecting... Addie finally stood up and tightened her ponytail.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 05, 2018, 11:10:00 AM
"Okay." Sunny smiled and squeezed his hand before she slid off her bottoms and dove into the waves.

Cole smirked. "Well, no one's as good as me, but I figured that was a given."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 05, 2018, 11:15:44 AM
Chris sat up to watch as she dove in, smiling to himself. He laid back down again and closed his eyes, content.

"Ah, so modest," Clemence smirked back and leaned her head against the wall behind the wall.

"Oh, right," Ferris nodded, his ears turning slightly red. "Um, about that...we weren't like, you know. We were just talking."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 05, 2018, 08:31:41 PM
Addie placed her hand at the back of her neck and nodded. "Hey, I'm not judging." She looked down at his legs then back up at him. "No classes today?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 06, 2018, 06:20:06 AM
(Dem legs tho)

Sunny swam to the surf floor and looked up at the surface. The sunlight looked so beautiful as it shone through the water. And to think before, when she was just a regular human, her underwater vision had been too blurry to properly see it. The more time Sunny spent as a mermaid instead of a human, the more the ocean appealed to her.

"Always." Cole smirked at her and closed his eyes again.

Andrew wiped out on his board, and he decided to rest and take it easy for a bit. That's when he noticed Addie and Ferris on the beach, and he jogged up to meet them. "Hey!" he called out.

(So I had an idea. It would help Kieya's charries get more involved than what they currently are. But idk how it'll work out.)

[YEAH DO IT.
also i don't know what wall behind the wall means, my bad lmao]

Chris eventually decided to go into the water, despite his lack of swim trunks. He was wearing shorts, it was fine. He pulled his shirt off and then went down to the waves.

Clemence glanced over him for a moment, then looked at the pizza Mary had left. "You gonna eat any of that?" she asked.

"Hey," Ferris said cheerfully when Andrew came over, waving to him. "Nah, I'm done for now," Ferris said to Addie.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 06, 2018, 06:41:58 AM
(Okay. What if Mary's parents sent someone from the mer city to look for her? And then more chaos ensues?)
(I'm coming up with way too many subplots, this is so bad I'm sorry)

Sunny floated upwards when she saw Chris, and waved to him, smiling wide.

Cole debated for a moment, then nodded and reached over for it. "Yeah, I think I will."

"What's up, guys?" Andrew asked as he slid his hands into his board short pockets.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 06, 2018, 06:57:25 AM
(I’m down if Kira’s down:) )

Addie shrugged with a smile. “Just all a coincidence meeting here.” She folded her arms. “Nice swim?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2018, 07:13:27 AM
[I love chaos]

Chris waved back and smiled as well, then went back to floating in the water and enjoying the waves.

Clemence sat up to help him get the box and settled it between them.

"Just enjoying the day," Ferris shrugged and looked out toward the water. He wanted to go swimming, but with Addie there he couldn't.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 06, 2018, 07:35:22 AM
(All righty then)

Sunny surfaced beside him, though she remained upright so no one could see her tail.

"Thanks." Cole smiled softly and took a slice out of the box.

Andrew nodded. "Yeah, I was body boarding. There's some nice waves out there."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

“Wow. How come I don’t see you out until the sea as much?” Addie asked untying her hair. She looked at Ferris and smiled. “Feeling for a swim?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2018, 07:45:04 AM
"Hey," Chris went upright and smiled at her.

Clemence nodded and took a piece out as well.

"Huh?" Ferris looked back at her again and then shook his head. "Oh, nah, I don't swim."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 06, 2018, 07:51:45 AM
(It's okay c: )

"Hey." She smiled back and brushed her hair out of her eyes.

Mary had even remembered what toppings he liked. Cole thought about that as he chewed, frowning.

"You don't see me out here because I'm usually holed up in studio," Andrew said with a chuckle.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 06, 2018, 07:57:31 AM
Mary had went back to her apartment, she was in the bath with her tail up. She flicked the pages of her book, frowning with every turn.

Addie lifted her brows and smiled once more. “Would you like me-us to teach you? It’s a glorious day.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2018, 08:00:11 AM
"How was the swim?" Chris asked, treading water.

"That's not really an expression you see on people eating pizza," Clemence commented after swallowing her bite. "What's up?"

"Uh, no, that's okay," Ferris said quickly, his eyes going a bit wide.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 06, 2018, 08:05:49 AM
"Good, so far." Sunny's eyes caught the horizon, and she tilted her head again. "Sometimes, I wonder how far I can go. Or how deep. And I wonder if there's more of us, you know?" she murmured, mostly to herself now.

Cole shook his head. "Nothing, it's just - what kind of a second date are we going to have if I'm crippled and car-less?" he said, glancing at her from the corner of his eye.

"Yeah, almost drowning as a kid doesn't a confident swimmer make." Andrew hoped he wasn't overstepping, and he hoped Ferris would just play along.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 06, 2018, 08:11:32 AM
“Hm.” Addie folded her arms and shrugged. “Well what you guys want to do huh?” She zipped up her jacket up to her chin.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2018, 08:16:29 AM
Chris turned to look out at the horizon and shrugged. "I dunno, the ocean's a big place. Anything's possible."

Clemence met his eye for a moment and then smiled. "This makes for a pretty good one," she shrugged and ate more pizza.

Ferris looked at Andrew with a grateful expression, then looked back at Addie. "Uh...well, you were jogging, right?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 06, 2018, 08:30:24 AM
Sunny chewed her lip. She was tempted to find out, but she knew today was not the day to do so. "Yeah you're right. Who knows."

"I don't even have a TV to watch in here," Cole said, grabbing another slice of pizza.

Andrew shrugged. He wasn't really a jogger, but he could be down for anything.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2018, 08:48:19 AM
"Do you guys have like, echolocation powers or anything?" Chris asked, looking at her again.

"Oh, god forbid we just entertain each other," Clemence said, rolling her eyes and then laughing a bit.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 06, 2018, 08:56:53 AM
"Yup, can you guys keep up with me though?" Addie asked rolling her shoulder.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 06, 2018, 11:50:57 AM
Sunny paused. "I don't think so," she said. Or, if they did, she didn't know how to use them.

"What are we, savages?" Cole said, and scoffed.

"Probably not. I'm not a runner," Andrew said. Were they really going to go jogging?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2018, 12:51:01 PM
"Can you talk to fish?" Chris asked.

"We'll have to be, considering there's no TV," Clemence said and shrugged.

"Neither am I," Ferris said with a frown.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 06, 2018, 08:11:15 PM
“Well are you guys foodies? Fancy breakfast at mine?” Addie asked with an inviting smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 07, 2018, 04:49:59 AM
"I...don't know. I've never tried." Sunny paused, then said, "I'll be right back," and dove under the water.

Cole chuckled. "It's terrible, really. Being social."

Andrew shrugged and nodded. "Sure, I'm down."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 07, 2018, 06:23:21 AM
Chris smiled a bit and waited, floating on his back again.

"Just the worst," Clemence agreed and smiled.

"Foods good," Ferris agreed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 07, 2018, 06:34:01 AM
"Come on." She placed her hands in her pockets. "I hope you guys brought your appetite, I'm feeling a full English."

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 07, 2018, 02:30:19 PM
Sunny figured that the best way to test whether she could talk to fish or not was to try touching them, like she would with a person. Despite ber best efforts, though, the fish were all too quick for her to grasp.
She surfaced next to Chris again, frowning. "I don't think I can talk to fish."

Cole smiled back and relaxed, letting his mind wanders for a bit.

"I always have my appetite," Andrew said with a grin.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 07, 2018, 04:01:49 PM
"Dang, that would've been cool," Chris frowned but then shrugged. "Oh well," he smiled again.

Clemence sat in the silence, just enjoying it. It didn't feel like an awkward silence, it was just comfortable.

"Same," Ferris agreed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 08, 2018, 04:44:50 AM
Addie joined their side and smiled. “So did you guys have fun last night?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 08, 2018, 05:18:31 AM
"Technically, you can talk to a fish. So that's cool." Sunny grinned and nudged his elbow with hers.

With all the medications he'd been given that day, Cole found himself drifting off, and he was too tired to try fighting it.

"Yeah! You really know how to throw a party." Andrew smiled back at her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 08, 2018, 05:26:39 AM
"That is pretty cool," Chris grinned back.

Clemence looked over when she heard his breathing even out and smiled, carefully getting off his bed.

"It was a ton of fun," Ferris agreed and nodded, looking down at the sidewalk.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 08, 2018, 05:34:14 AM
“It’s in my blood I suppose. Life of the party I am.” Addie opened her back gate from them. “Would you guys come again? Some uh... crazy things happened.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 08, 2018, 07:55:42 AM
The thought of kissing him crossed Sunny's mind, but she decided instead to dive underwater again. The last thing they needed was another were-fish. And she doubted Chris would be okay with that.

Cole shifted slightly when Clemence moved, but he didn't wake up.

Andrew nodded. "Yeah, I would. I'm good with crazy."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 08, 2018, 08:10:33 AM
Chris turned away before the water could splash him, and decided to swim back over to the beach to lay in the sun again.

Clemence found some paper in her bag and wrote him a note, just telling him to text her when he could and to let her know if he needed anything. She looked at him one more time before heading back out.

"Oh yeah, for sure," Ferris assured her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 08, 2018, 08:26:55 AM
“Come in you guys...” she opened the door to her house and saw the cleaners try to wipe wine stains, as well as other stains on the couch. “Next time to plastic cover everything.” She removes her jacket and threw it on one of the chairs.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 08, 2018, 09:46:14 AM
Sunny laid on the ocean floor on her belly, looking out towards the open water. There were other merfolk out there. How she knew, she couldn't explain, but she knew. They were out there. All she had to do was swim out to them. But she pushed those thoughts out of her head, and swam towards the beach again.

Cole was soon in deep sleep. He dreamed of the full moon, and a woman with deep tanned skin and curly black hair holding it in her hands. Her tears formed rain drops; Cole could practically see them shimmering in the pale light.

"Did you hire these guys, or are they, like...your live in cleaners?" Andrew asked as he watched then work. Seeing how wealthy Addie's family was still tripped him out. He could only hope he would become this successful someday.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 08, 2018, 10:31:25 AM
"Hired, it's not a upstairs downstairs situation. They're regulars though, they clean the pool, and the empty rooms." Addie opened her fridge and started to prepare the food.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 08, 2018, 10:36:25 AM
Chris was sitting in the sand with his hands on knees, and smiled when he saw Sunny come back up and stood, heading back down toward the surf to meet her.

Ferris raised an eyebrow and watched the cleaners for a moment, then turned toward Addie. "Do you want any help?" he offered.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 08, 2018, 10:39:20 AM
"Hey, you're my guests... just sit and tell me would you prefer tea or coffee? Or leftover vodka?" Addie asked as she poured herself a glass of orange juice.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 08, 2018, 11:00:20 AM
Sunny smiled over at him, and started crawling up the beach once she was out of the waves. She just hoped she didn't look like a sea monster while doing it. Crawling wasn't exactly the most graceful thing.

"Uh...coffee's good for me, thanks." Andrew slid his hands in his pockets again and looked around the living room.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 08, 2018, 11:08:38 AM
Addie placed bacon onto the pan and watched Andrew. “Did you lose something last night or just admiring the view?” She presses the buttons on her coffee maker, and placed it on the counter top.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 08, 2018, 03:41:33 PM
Chris waited for her and sat down on the beach. "All done?" he asked, glancing her over once. His gaze lingered on her tail for a moment, then he brought his eyes back up to her face.

"Just water for me, I don't really do caffeine," Ferris told her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 08, 2018, 04:43:57 PM
Sunny nodded. "Yeah, I didn't feel like doing a marathon swim today." She caught his eyes as they moved back up to her face, and she rolled over on to her side to show the front of her tail. "You can look at it, if you want. I don't mind."

"Admiring the view. You have a real nice place," he said to Addie as he turned back to her.

The moon lady was talking to herself, but not in a language Cole understood. Suddenly, the scene changed, and he and the woman were standing together in a forest, only illuminated by moonlight and the stars. She opened her mouth, about to say something, when a huge creature burst out of the trees and snatched the woman up in its teeth. The animal - a wolf, because what else would it be? - dragged her off into the night, leaving a trail of silvery blood behind, and Cole found himself screaming as he awoke.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 08, 2018, 09:35:02 PM
Addie went into another fridge and poured Ferris’ water into a glass and slid it his way. She chuckled at Andrew’s remark. “Thank you, but this isn’t the best room in the house.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 09, 2018, 09:56:52 AM
Chris hesitated, then let his eyes wander over her tail again. "It's so bright," he said quietly.

"What's the best?" Ferris asked, taking a sip of his water.

Andrew raised an eyebrow at that, but otherwise didn't comment as he ate.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 09, 2018, 02:51:25 PM
[YEAH. OKAY.]

Clemence was almost out of the hospital - she'd gotten a little lost - when something made her stop dead in her tracks. She felt kind of cold, but she mostly had the insistent urge to go back and check on Cole. Fighting with herself for a moment, she finally lamented and turned around, booking it back up to his room. When she was getting there, she already saw a nurse going in in a hurry and could hear Cole screaming, so she followed in after the nurse.

"You're probably bigger than most of the sharks around here, so they wouldn't be interested in eating you," Chris shrugged. "Or maybe you have some weird mermaid power that deters them."

Ferris just gave her a weird look but ate happily.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 09, 2018, 03:05:57 PM
Cole's heart was still pounding, even after he'd fully woken up to the nurse shaking him, and he realized she was saying something about pain medication.
"No, I don't need more meds, I'm not in pain," he insisted, even though it was a lie.
The nurse gave him a look, but left the room without pushing the matter.

Post by: LittleK on February 09, 2018, 09:21:22 PM

Addie quickly scoffed down her breakfast, and called one of the cleaners over. She instructed them in Italian to clean up after them and smiled. "Ready when you are sirs..." She gulped her tea with a smile.

The nurse gave him a look, but left the room without pushing the matter.

"I guess I have a lot of those," she said with a laugh. Somehow, she managed to crawl up to where Chris had been laying out earlier, and flipped onto her back to catch some sun herself. She did place a towel over her lower belly region for when she turned back into a human, just to be prepared.

Andrew nodded at Addie, scrambling to fit the last bite of bacon in his mouth.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 10, 2018, 06:12:31 AM
Clemence watched the nurse leave, then peered around to see Cole. "Hey, are you okay?" She asked gently as she came over by his bed.

Chris kept an eye to make sure no one was around to see them, but mostly just enjoyed the sun as well.

Ferris finished his food and nodded to Addie.

Post by: LittleK on February 10, 2018, 06:24:39 AM
Addie rummaged through on of the drawers first and scooped a key with spirals and a velvet  thread tied on the end. She started to lead them to the end of the corridor. “You guys must’ve watch Beauty and the Beast right?” She asked as she fiddled with the door.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 10, 2018, 06:34:56 AM
Cole nodded, trying to calm himself down from the nightmare. His voice was hoarse when he spoke. "Yeah, I'm fine. Why?"

"This is nice," Sunny said after a while of comfortable quiet.

"You have a giant library in there?' Andrew asked her, raising an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 10, 2018, 06:36:43 AM
“Very intuitive.” Addie turned all the locks to reveal the plethora of books displayed. “Came with the house, well passed down from generation to generation in my family. Most are all first editions.”

"Well that's quite a lie," Clemence said and pulled a chair up beside his bed. "What happened?"

"Yeah, it is," Chris agreed and looked over at her.

"That's dope," Ferris said with wide eyes as he looked at all the books.

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 10, 2018, 11:11:03 AM
"Nothing." Cole cleared his throat and fidgeted with his cast. The last thing he wanted to do was admit what had happened. The dream hadn't even made enough sense to warrant screaming.

Sunny met his eyes and smiled softly at him. Chris couldn't ever be a monster, she thought. No matter how bad things got on a full moon. There was just no way.

Andrew raised an eyebrow at Ferris' and Addie's exchange. "Is...there something going on between you two?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 10, 2018, 12:56:09 PM

"Okay...well, if you want to talk I'm here," Clemence said, looking at him worriedly.

Chris glanced over her face and moved a bit closer so their arms were touching, and then smiled gently at her again.

Ferris looked at Addie, startled. "What are you talking about?" He asked, narrowing his eyes.

Post by: LittleK on February 10, 2018, 01:15:29 PM
“Just...” Addie had kept her favourite collections on one side, she had scribbled notes beside the margins. The books had information to the history of merfolk, keeping true to her word she thrusted the books into his arms. “It’s a... fun read. When you’re done you can give it back okay?”

Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 10, 2018, 01:29:27 PM
Cole nodded and looked down at the blankets. He didn't say anything for a while, but he glanced up at Clemence every so often.

Sunny leaned her head against Chris' shoulder and closed her eyes.

Andrew watched their conversation, but didn't want to eavesdrop. So he decided to peruse the rest of Addie's books.

"Alright, we can watch Netflix, Youtube, or play a game," she said and moved onto his bed next to him and pulled out her phone.

Chris smiled and leaned his cheek on top of her head and closed his eyes.

Ferris stared down at the book, still completely confused. Suddenly, though,  it dawned on him and he stared at the cover before looking up at Addie. "How do you know?" He demanded.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 11, 2018, 06:35:24 AM
“You. Last night. Mary, and Sunny. Just these books might help you understand more... just don’t show any prying eyes.” Addie glanced to Andrew then to Ferris. “I think they’re more than fiction...” she continued to whisper.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 11, 2018, 07:12:33 AM
I'd rather just kiss you again, Cole thought, but instead he asked, "What kind of games do you have?"

After a few minutes, Sunny's tail turned back into her legs, and she pulled her towel around her waist to cover herself.

Andrew stared at the book he now held. It was a manual of magic, and from what he could see in it's table of contents, it contained just about everything he and Clemence might need to know - potions, charms, protective talismans and runes. Maybe this could be useful to them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 11, 2018, 07:17:08 AM
(You kill me Cole.)

Addie stepped into Andrew’s view and smiled. “Don’t worry I’ve got something for you, I just figured that Ferris could use it for... his studies.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 11, 2018, 08:14:12 AM
(Lololol)

"All these," Clemence said and opened the games folder on her phone, then leaned closer to show him.

Chris felt her move and opened his eyes. "You alright?" He asked.

"He knows about me," Ferris said, looking at Addie with a frown.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 11, 2018, 08:25:42 AM
(Don't worry. I have more suffering planned :3 )

Cole's eyes went wide, and he leaned in closer to her. "Oh, so, a lot, then."

"Yeah. I'm just making sure I'm decent," Sunny explained. Her cheeks blushed pink again.

''Hmm? Oh, yeah, the tail thing," Andrew said, only half paying attention as he looked through the magic book.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 11, 2018, 08:34:32 AM
(Stahpp
...please do go on)

Addie clenched her jaw, and looked at Ferris. Maybe he knew about Ferris about how the girls? She gently closed the book. “Later, okay? You’re amongst friends right now...”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 11, 2018, 09:14:13 AM
[I love suffering.]

"Yeah," she nodded and glanced up at him, suddenly realizing how close they were. She let her gaze wander over his face, then she looked back down at the phone screen.

"Oh," Chris chuckled when he looked down, seeing her cheeks going pink.

"So how did you find out exactly?" Ferris asked her, tucking the book about the mermaids under his arm.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 11, 2018, 09:25:01 AM
Addie sighed slowly and smiled. “You, I saw you... transform when you guys were in the bathroom.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 11, 2018, 02:17:33 PM
Cole met her eyes as she was looking over him. Maybe he shouldn't try to kiss her again just yet. Then again, he could always pass it off as a painkiller induced haze...

Sunny laughed, nervous, and clutched it tighter. Not even a full twenty four hours had passed since the party, and she was pants-less in front of Chris. "Yeah."

"How did you see?" Andrew asked, curious. "I mean, you left before he touched the water.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 11, 2018, 03:24:55 PM
Clemence glanced over his face, her eyes lingering on his lips.

"I can turn away again, if you want to change," Chris offered.

"Yeah, how?" Ferris tilted his head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 11, 2018, 10:41:06 PM
“The gap between the door and the floor. I dont know it was a hazy memory...” Addie placed her hand on the back of her neck with an awkward smile. “Sorry?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 12, 2018, 02:20:15 AM
Cole leaned in and pressed his lips to hers, closing his eyes.

"Would you?" Sunny was still embarrassed, but she relaxed somewhat at that.

"Huh." Andrew nodded slowly. If magic and mythical creatures were this easily discoverable, then he and Clemence would have to be extremely careful in training and fighting.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 12, 2018, 02:40:48 AM
(I’m jelly)

“But here...” Addie took a book out from the shelve, with a cover of merfolk however with little to no information of anything important. “Didn’t want you to leave empty handed as well.” She cleared her throat. “A reason for you guys to come back huh?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2018, 02:55:43 AM
Clemence sighed and kissed him back, tilting her head the slightest bit so it was easier.

"Sure, no problem," Chris reassured her and turned away, looking down at his feet in the sand.

Ferris just frowned and looked down at the book again.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 12, 2018, 03:06:06 AM
Mary had closed her eyes for a moment, from all the reading her eyes got dry. She found herself by the beach, the waves crashing on the shore. Sea foam appeared and so did familiar places, her brothers, her sisters, her mother and father. Mary breathed heavily as she tried to run away, however her feet felt the foam and the lower half of her body changed. She faced them, panicking fight or flight? Fight, with her hands she commanded the waves to pull them away. Yet she herself was pulled with them.
Mary woke up, her bathroom drenched and seaweed on the floor. It wasn’t a dream.

Addie sighed as she sat on one of the chairs. “Anything happening today?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 12, 2018, 05:57:27 AM
Cole wrapped his good arm around her. It had been a while since he'd kissed anyone, especially sober - and he hadn't been in a relationship since before he became a werewolf. Did he even know how to have a relationship anymore? He wasn't sure, and that made him nervous.

As Sunny slipped her jeans back up her legs, she happened to glance up for a moment. Her eyes caught a flash of orange, and she recognized the shape of a merfolk fluke before it dove further into the tide.
"Chris! Chris, look!" she shouted, standing up and pointing to the water, but it was gone just as quickly as it had appeared.

"Uh, I have to wait for my pottery project to harden, and then I'm gonna paint it. You?" Andrew asked. He casually slid the books into his bag.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 12, 2018, 06:15:40 AM
Mary dragged her whole body from the tub, and reached for her phone to call Sunny.

“Nothing that would take up my time. Could I... tag along?” Addie shut her book and watched him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2018, 06:20:04 AM
Clemence carded her fingers through his hair, gently. There was a warning bell going off in the back of her mind. Maybe the whole hunting thing complicated things, but Cole didn't have to know. She could keep a secret, no problem.

Chris looked over, but didn't see anything. He frowned and squinted at the water, then looked at Sunny and shrugged apologetically.

"What did you make?" Ferris asked curiously.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 12, 2018, 12:17:54 PM
Cole pressed himself as close to her as he could. He was getting wrapped up in the kiss, his mind going blank.

"I - I saw a tail. Like ours," Sunny clarified. "But it was orange. I know it wasn't Ferris or Mary. They're not orange. They're really not!" At that moment, she felt her phone go off in her back pocket, and she answered the phone call.

"I made a vase. And yeah, you guys can come with, if you want." Andrew shrugged. There usually wasn't many people in the studio at this part of the day,  so it wouldn't be a big deal if they came along.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2018, 12:42:07 PM
Clemence pulled away after a few more moments and smiled. "That also was a pretty good distraction," she said.

Chris opened his mouth to say something, but she was on the phone so he focused back on the ocean to see if he could see anything else.

"Cool," Ferris smiled and looked over at Addie. "I'm down," he shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 12, 2018, 02:08:11 PM
(Sorry guys, I was at work all day today.)

"Yeah, it was," Cole agreed. He smiled back at her, leaning back slightly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2018, 03:04:52 PM
(Youre good, I was pretty busy all day too)

Clemence played with his hair, which her fingers were still tangled up in.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 12, 2018, 08:31:18 PM
(No worries :) )
Mary was breathing raggedly as she dried herself off. “Get your asses away from the sea or any bodies water. Get to mine, I need to tell you something.” She hung up and started to clean up in the bathroom.

“Awesome, I can live out my Ghost moment where Patrick Swayze wraps his arms around me.” Addie replied as she got up and led them out the library.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 13, 2018, 05:05:48 AM
Cole's eyes slid shut as she played in his hair. It was a nice, calming feeling; he could almost go back to sleep. But the memory of the wolf's dark fur, and the glint of silver blood in the moonlight kept him wide awake

Sunny hung up and turned to Chris, still processing what happened. "Mary wants us to meet her at her place," she said.

"I've actually never seen that; is it good?" Andrew asked Addie as the three of them headed out.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 13, 2018, 05:17:03 AM
Mary shut all her blinds and slipped into her bathrobe. She knew they’d be back soon, and this time they wouldn’t take no for an answer.

“It’s a chick flick, but isn’t that bad.” Addie shrugged as she locked the library behind her. “Something to watch when it’s a rainy day, or when you’re alone for Valentine’s Day.” She chuckled.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 13, 2018, 05:58:47 AM
Clemence smiled gently when she saw his features relax as he closed his eyes, but something he was thinking about made them harden again. She frowned and scooted a bit closer, still playing with his hair.

"Oh, well," Chris frowned and stood up, brushing the sand off of him as best he could. "Let's go, then."

"What's it even about? I've never heard of it," Ferris said, watching her lock the door before he turned toward the front entrance.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 13, 2018, 06:38:51 AM
"You're gonna put me to sleep if you keep doing that," Cole said to her with a soft smile. He tried to push the nightmare out of his mind, and focused on spending time with her.

Sunny nodded and headed back up to his car. Anxiety knotted in her stomach the entire drive to Mary's apartment. Mary had sounded scared on the phone, and Sunny didn't like that at all.

Andrew shrugged. "All I know is Patrick Swayze is dead in it."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 13, 2018, 06:51:44 AM
Mary anxiously sat on her couch, waiting for the knock on the door. She tried to meditate, to calm herself. However, she kept thinking about the home she left behind and shook her head. The more she thought of them, she was scared that they could hear her.

“Yep, and Demi Moore totally fell in love with a ghost. Blah blah blah.” Addie continued to chuckle. She kept looking at Ferris and Andrew, she felt tense in sharing which pages sounded important, especially in front of Andrew. So instead, she took out her phone and asked, “but I just realised I don’t have both of your numbers... do you mind?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 13, 2018, 06:54:36 AM
"Maybe you need some sleep," Clemence said, leaning her head on her shoulder.

They got there relatively quickly. Chris parked out front and went up to the front door, pausing to wait for Sunny before he rang it.

"Weird," Ferris scrunched up his nose a bit. He supposed if mermaids and werewolves existed, why not ghosts? Hell, all of Halloweentown was probably real at this point. He snapped out of his reminiscing about Marnie and Grandma Aggie when Addie spoke. "Number? Oh, yeah, sure," he said and pulled his phone out of his back pocket.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 13, 2018, 09:05:27 AM
(All right, my guest's color is processing.)

"Maybe," Cole mumbled, closing his eyes again. He was partly afraid of what he would see if he fell asleep, but those worries were getting weaker by the minute. Sleeping did sound nice.

Sunny chewed on her lower lip as they waited. "She didn't tell me what was wrong," she said, mostly to herself. "I hate it when people don't tell me things like that."

"Yeah, you're good." Andrew pulled up a page for a new contact in his phone and waited for Addie to finish.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 13, 2018, 09:11:00 AM
Mary had picked up her receiver, “Come inside now!” She buzzes then in and kept pacing up and down the hall way, trying to be calm. She hadn’t told this to anyone, apart from Cole who figured it out instantly. She thought she was safe.

“So, who’s driving?” Addie asked as she quickly sent a text to Ferris.
Show it to the girls, no one else. It’s important knowledge.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 13, 2018, 09:21:24 AM
Clemence looked up at him and smiled gently, then closed her eyes as well. Maybe she could get a quick nap in as well. She had plenty of time before she was supposed to train with Andrew, so she wasn't worried.

Chris looked at Sunny with a confused face, then headed inside to find Mary.

Ferris looked down at his phone and then his frown deepened. He wanted to reply, but he also didn't want Andrew to know they were texting in case he started asking questions. Ferris had told him his secret, that didn't mean he was going to tell him about Sunny or Mary.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 13, 2018, 11:40:51 AM
Cole soon dozed off, leaning his head against hers.

"What's wrong?" Sunny asked as they walked in. She closed the door behind them, frowning in concern.

"I can drive. My car's parked not too far from rom here," Andrew offered. He noticed Ferris glance down at his phone, but didn't say anything. Instead he sent a message to Clemence: Will 9 work for you for tonight?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 13, 2018, 02:06:44 PM
She was about to fall asleep, but then felt her phone go off. She frowned and glanced at it, then quickly texted Andrew saying that was fine. She set her phone aside and slid her hand into Cole's, the arm that wasn't broken, and started dozing off again.

"Sounds good," Ferris smiled at Andrew and followed him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 13, 2018, 09:26:14 PM
Mary shut the door behind them and locked them. “I haven’t been honest with you...” she led them to the couch to sit. Where should she start? Why didn’t she tell them? She kept pacing up and down.

Addie followed them and walked alongside them. “I hope I’m not imposing.” She said sliding into her jacket.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 14, 2018, 02:27:52 AM
"What do you mean?" Sunny asked her. She was too nervous to sit, so she remained standing and fiddled with the hem of her shirt.

Andrew shook his head. "No, you're fine. I don't have plans until later tonight."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 14, 2018, 03:02:27 AM
“Truthfully, I’d like to state I’m not from Beaumont. I-I’m from the colony.” She had her back back to them, her face burning up.

“Ooh anything interesting? Date?” Addie chirped happily.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 14, 2018, 03:06:01 AM
"The colony," Chris repeated, though it wasn't a question. He didn't understand at all, though. "What colony?"

Ferris raised his eyebrows at the mention of a date, and looked at Andrew curiously. He really should stop getting his hopes up about probably straight guys.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 14, 2018, 03:30:29 AM
Sunny's brows furrowed even further in confusion. "What colony? What are you talking about?"

He laughed and shook his head. "No, not a date. Just a workout with my gym buddy."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 14, 2018, 03:35:40 AM
Mary turned around and looked at them dead in the eyes. “The colony, every month you’re always wanting to go into the sea? Swim somewhere? You’re swimming the to the colony. Mermaidland if you will.” She threw her arms to her side.

“Do you need to go to the gym though?” Addie chuckled nudging his arms.
(I was going through the info you gave us, there wasn’t a name for said colony soooo yeah xD)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 14, 2018, 03:37:24 AM
Chris blinked a few times, trying to wrap his head around that. "So...there definitely are more of you? And you're like, really one? Like you're not a human that became a mermaid, you were born a mermaid?"

Ferris watched the interaction and bit his lip, then focused on his phone to distract himself.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 14, 2018, 03:49:27 AM
(Let's call it Saleran. Saleran is a good name.)

Sunny had to sit down at that. "I saw another one today," she said. "The tail, at least. It was orange."

"Well, yeah. If you don't maintain muscle mass, you lose it," Andrew said, and slid his hands into his pockets.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 14, 2018, 04:38:46 AM
Mary sat beside Sunny and shook her head. “I’m a fully fledged mermaid yes. And there is a colony of us. And when the moon is at its brightest, we try to swim to Saleran.” She explained and clenched her jaw. “Those tails, they’re my family. It’s been too long since...” she trailed.

“Well I’m always looking for a good gym, being a fitness fanatic I need a good gym. Is the one you go to a good one?” Addie asked shoving her hands into her jacket pockets.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 14, 2018, 04:44:50 AM
"Wait, so then why are you here?" Chris asked, frowning now.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 14, 2018, 04:51:10 AM
“I like it here, with the beauty of people turning into merpeople makes it easier to conceal my secret. Although I like my human form, I need to go into the water to relieve myself you know?” Mary replied looking at Chris, she wanted to avoid this. The questions, the discrimination but no matter. “Is that it for questions?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 14, 2018, 04:52:24 AM
"No," he said firmly. "Why didn't you tell anyone?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 14, 2018, 05:02:28 AM
“No one asked.” Mary repleid with the same tone.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 14, 2018, 05:24:59 AM
"But what made you want to come up here?" Sunny asked. "I mean, why leave...Saleran? Is that what you said?"

Andrew nodded. "Yeah, I just go to the rec center on campus. The membership fee is included in the tuition; you might as well not waste your money, right?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 14, 2018, 05:28:37 AM
“I’ve never lied when I said I wanted to be human. I came here in hopes of finding a witch, I hear witches have a strong presence here. But my people found me first.” Mary looked down at their feet and shook her head.

Addie shook her head, money didn’t bother her. She just wanted the company that she craved for. “Yeah sure, um. That’s true.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 14, 2018, 05:57:10 AM
Sunny took a deep breath, staring at the wall behind Mary. "So, what now, then? Are they gonna, like, come after you or something?"

"Yeah. And they have beginner classes and stuff." Andrew nodded once, looking down at his shoes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 14, 2018, 06:00:45 AM
“I called you over because they’ll entice you to go with them. And this’ll make me come for you. I’m saying what your backs always. And don’t go into the sea. Not until I say so.” Mary stood again as she raked her fingers  through her hair. “I-I’m sorry...”

“Awesome, maybe I can catch you there sometime.” Addie looked around then back to Andrew and Ferris. “So... which is your car?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 14, 2018, 06:13:02 AM
Anger flared up in her, but she did her best not to let it show. "I think I can decide for myself when it's safe to swim or not." Maybe Sunny was overreacting, but she hated being lied to.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 14, 2018, 06:28:19 AM
“You’re pissed I get it. Just spare me, okay. Please be safe. It’s all I ask.” Mary looked at them. “I never lied okay. You never asked so I never told.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 14, 2018, 06:39:05 AM
"You kept a secret, though," Chris argued, narrowing his eyes at her. "That's not cool, Mary. Especially if your secret put Sunny and Ferris in danger."

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 14, 2018, 06:44:31 AM
Mary dryly laughed and shook her head. “It never came up. You never asked me about my life.” She packed up and down once more. “How should’ve I told you? You grew up here that’s awesome. I come from a mystical land that no ones ever heard of. Supportive friends you are. Truly.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 14, 2018, 06:55:17 AM
"I have asked you! You just acted like you didn't want to talk about it, so I backed off. Goodness knows if I hadn't, you would've gotten pissy at me and gotten all passive aggressive about intruding in your business, or whatever." Sunny took a deep breath and raked her fingers through her hair.

"Mine's the Dodge." Andrew gestured to it, frowning. "I really need a new one. Damn AC's broke on this thing, and I can't keep it fixed."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 14, 2018, 06:57:54 AM
Chris looled down at Sunny and then sat down beside her, putting his hand on her arm.

"Maybe Cole can look at it," Ferris suggested. "He works at an autoshop, I think. Have you met him?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 14, 2018, 07:53:32 AM
Mary felt so torn, she felt so dismayed from her situation but she saw their point. “You don’t know me at all.” She replied softly. “If only you understood me, you could understand unearthing my past is painful.”

“Um... I don’t think so. But...” Addie looked into and smiled. “Very retro.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 14, 2018, 08:07:39 AM
"Help us u derstand you, then." Sunny gestured for her to sit on the couch. "You have to meet us in the middle here, Mary."

"I think I have. Tall blond guy, right? You know where he works?" Andrew asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 14, 2018, 08:32:31 AM
Chris looked at Mary expectantly, though he was still a bit guarded. Secrets didn't warrant them any kind of help, in his book.

"Yeah," Ferris nodded. "I dunno, maybe he could look at it," he shrugged.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 14, 2018, 08:56:59 AM
Mary sat back down where Sunny suggested and took a deep breath. She held her hand out, for both of them to hold. “Please... words won’t explain everything.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 14, 2018, 01:37:52 PM
Sunny was unsure, but took her hand and reached out for Chris's with the other. As long as she could see Mary's memories, Chris would be able to, as well.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 14, 2018, 02:18:02 PM
Chris glanced down at their hands but then nodded and looked at Mary.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 15, 2018, 06:34:58 AM
Mary lightly slid her hands into both theirs, her hands were clammy from her nervousness. Flashes of images of her past, of the places she visited, the people she met full of happiness, joy, fear.
Her memory stopped at her, standing at the edge of the pier in darkness. Only but the waves she could hear, she exhaled out. She felt so happy in Cambodia, she felt so happy. So happy. Then a funnel of water started to arise from the water, and a hand pulled her in. She screamed and thrashed in the water, trying to shake off her brother’s grip.
But it wasn’t just once or twice, it was more than 10 times. All the captures worse than the other. 

She finally let go, brushing away the tears and stood.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 15, 2018, 06:40:42 AM
Chris was silent for a minute, taking that in. "I just don't understand why you keep trying to get away from them, if they're your family and all," he finally said, looking up at Mary.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 15, 2018, 06:48:51 AM
“Because they don’t accept on what I want. Human, normal, average. One doesn’t just run away from Saleran. One must stay forever there.” Mary turned around and took a deep breath. “Every time they find me, the punishment gets worse.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 15, 2018, 06:56:12 AM
"So, say you find a witch who'll turn you into a human. What happens when your family finds you and doesn't know?" Sunny asked, folding her hands in her lap.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 15, 2018, 07:03:24 AM
“They’ll know. We’re all connected by our power. Once I become human, they won’t be able to sense me.” Mary replied, with a big sigh. “I’m just scared what they’ll do if they find you...”

"Who's to say they haven't already?" Sunny said. "If we're all linked, then they probably already know who and where we are."

"Besides, this is kind of why you all have me and Cole," Chris said, tapping his foot. "I mean, like, protection wise, you know?"

“Yeah well... Cole is maimed at the moment, and also he is preoccupied with another girl. He’s busy.” Mary replied cleaning her throat, she needed him now more than ever. It seemed such a long time since she had properly spoken to him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 15, 2018, 08:46:40 AM
Sunny's eyes went wide. "Maimed? What happened to him?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 15, 2018, 08:48:32 AM
"Woah, what?" Chris's eyes went wide as he stared at Mary.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 15, 2018, 08:51:19 AM
“Car crash, I saw him today but I was interrupted.” Mary replied pouring herself a drink of water. “Life just loves to play with us...”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 15, 2018, 08:58:46 AM
"I mean, is he okay? How bad is he hurt?" Sunny leaned back on the couch, her thoughts reeling. Today was just too much, she decided.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 15, 2018, 09:00:34 AM
Chris shook his head and pulled his phone out, searching for Cole's name. Hey man, just talked to Mary. Let me know if you need anything he texted him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 15, 2018, 09:03:54 AM
Mary shook her head, “he’s in pain, yet he denies that he is. He was bruised and casts and everything.” She shook her head and took a beer from the fridge and sat beside them again. “I just wish... he would talk to me...”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 15, 2018, 09:54:25 AM
"I don't think Cole really talks to anyone," Sunny said. She absently reached for Chris's hand, wanting his comfort and touch.

The phone vibrating under his hip woke Cole up, and he let go of Clemence's hand to read the message. Thanks, he managed to type, then wrapped his arm around her again.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 15, 2018, 10:05:20 AM
“Yeah well, I don’t think anyone would. Let alone be my friend.” Mary took a long drink of her beer and placed her feet onto the table.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 15, 2018, 10:07:44 AM
Chris laced his fingers with Sunny's automatically and just sighed. "So, the whole family thing is why you want to find a witch so bad?" He asked Mary, wanting to change the subject from the pity party.

Clemence felt Cole move and she opened her eyes for a moment, then smiled and settled back against him again. "How do you feel?" she asked, still sounding a little sleepy.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 15, 2018, 10:15:48 AM
“Yep. Like I said, strong sense of a witch here. If there are wolves here, there must be a witch.” Mary leaned her head back and shook her head. “So are we cool now? You done berating me?” She asked reaching for a pack of smokes.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 15, 2018, 11:09:10 AM
Sunny took a deep breath. "Yeah, we're done. It's fine." But maybe the witch could help Chris and Cole, too. It was worth a shot, at least.

"Not terrible," Cole answered, which wasn't a lie. He'd laid on his bad shoulder wrong, and it was now flaring with pain, but he'd felt worse pain than this. He could handle it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 15, 2018, 11:11:40 AM
Chris nodded in agreement. "So...is there anything else?"

"That's good," she look up at him and sighed softly, then sat up and stretched. "Thanks for letting me nap with you," she said as she yawned.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 15, 2018, 11:21:02 AM
“Just please, be careful if you’re in the water. It’s not the first time they blackmailed using friends.” Mary looked at Sunny, and Chris with a chuckle.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 15, 2018, 11:29:33 AM
"Noted." Sunny nodded slowly and ran her hands through her hair, taking another deep breath.

Cole smiled at her. "Yeah, sure."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 15, 2018, 11:54:40 AM
Chris put his hand on Sunny's back and rubbed it comfortingly.

Clemence leaned back against the pillows and looked over at the window.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 16, 2018, 01:10:44 AM
Mary circled her finger on the bottle and sighed. “Should I consider killing my own family?” She asked looking at them both, she then leaned on Sunny’s shoulder and closed her eyes.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 16, 2018, 06:35:16 AM
Sunny tensed at the question. "No, but maybe you should consider moving further inland. Somewhere they can't get to you."

Cole watched her, smiling softly. He could keep a secret, he decided. Clemence didn't have to know what he was.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 16, 2018, 06:44:59 AM
“I like Beaumont.” Mary muttered and sighed. “But what about what Chris said?”

(I think it’sd be a great opportunity to bring in said fam members :3)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 16, 2018, 06:51:13 AM
"What about what I said?" Chris raised an eyebrow.

Clemence looked over at him and smiled as well. "What?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 16, 2018, 06:58:48 AM
(I think so too c: )

Sunny glanced between Chris and Mary, frowning again. She ran her thumb over Chris' knuckles as she pondered the situation they were now in.

"Nothing." Cole shook his head. He was glad she'd come today. Even though he did feel bad about Mary...a bit.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 16, 2018, 07:16:45 AM
(Aaaah okay I’ll be introducing them one at a time :) )
“You and Cole would protect us, as we do. As I remember I saved Cole’s life.” Mary replied finally decided to light up a cigarette.

Adrianna clothed herself in the bathroom, out of all her siblings she wanted to save Mary from the torture that her parents would undue on her. She had tapped into her mind before she was swept away, her favoured sister never severed their connection. Once she stepped out of the bathroom, she searched the cafe of someone who had car keys. With a smile she slipped into the empty chair and placed her hand on his forearm. “Drive me here? Please?” Adrianna had given him a picture of where Mary was. The gift of sight gave Adrianna the power to make people see what she wanted them to see. “I have money.” She said with a rueful smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 16, 2018, 07:21:55 AM
"Well, yeah, but I'm not gonna go kill your family for you - or anyone, for that matter." Hia brows furrowed and he frowned at her.

"Hm," Clemence smiled gently and leaned her head against his shoulder.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 16, 2018, 07:40:42 AM
“I wasn’t wanting that. You seem too nice for that anyway... but to attack at least? You have my back right?” Mary asked breathing out stressfully.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 16, 2018, 08:06:37 AM
"I'm not your guard dog," Chris said, standing abruptly with his fist clenched.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 16, 2018, 08:20:53 AM
“Stand down Cerberus.” Mary lifted her hands and looked down at his fists. “Fuck me. I thought we were friends Chris.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 16, 2018, 08:27:06 AM
"Where do you get off asking me to attack someone for you like I'm a fucking pitbull, Mary? When I say protect you, I mean from people finding out about you guys, and as far as I'm concerned your deal with your family is on you, not me, not Sunny. And so help me, if anything happens to her because of you I swear to fucking God -" he cut himself off, taking a breath, and stepped back. "I need some air," he finally said, his glare settling on Mary for a moment before he turned and went out the front door.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 16, 2018, 08:39:32 AM
Mary stood and her fingers went through her hair. For the life of her, she didn’t seem to get anything right she looked at Sunny and gestured to him. “Go to him then. I suppose you feel the same. So I’ll just do you guys all a favour and move by tonight.” Her voice became a whisper and retreated to her room.

Adrianna was walking along the corridors, so far she had knocked on all the doors. None of them knew where her sister was. She nodded gracefully, she needed to be patient she thought. She heard a slam on the door and watched a guy walk out. She smiled swiftly, and purposefully knocked into him. “Sorry!” She exclaimed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 16, 2018, 09:56:53 AM
Sunny had been about to respond to Mary, but the other girl walked away before she had a chance. Sunny sighed softly and walked out the door to find Chris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 16, 2018, 10:35:25 AM
Chris took a step back and was about to make a sharp retort, but then he remembered that he needed to calm down so he just shook his head at her and went to keep walking downstairs.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 16, 2018, 10:47:13 AM
Sunny glanced once at the other girl in the hallway, and nodded to her once in greeting before hurrying after Chris. She called out his name, speeding to catch up with him.

"Hm," Clemence smiled gently and leaned her head against his shoulder.

Cole leaned his head against hers, closing his eyes again.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 16, 2018, 11:02:13 AM
Chris paused and turned, then waited for Sunny to catch up. "I'm sorry," he blurted immediately. "I'm so sorry. She just made me so mad, and I didn't...I don't...I don't know. I'm sorry," he rambled, trying to explain himself. He hated feeling like this, but his temper had always gotten the better of him and it was even more so now with the wolfishness.

Clemence slipped her hand back into his again and smiled to herself, feeling as though she had accomplished something. What exactly, she wasn't sure, but it felt good.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 16, 2018, 11:42:25 AM
"It's okay." Sunny stepped close to him and wrapped her arms around his waist. "It's gonna be okay."

Cole squeezed her hand, but something about the way he was laying was making his shoulder feel even worse. So he shifted, trying to get it in a better position.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 16, 2018, 11:53:17 AM
Chris wrapped his arms around her and hugged her tightly, pressing his face against her hair.

Clemence moved a bit to give him more space.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 16, 2018, 02:06:51 PM
Sunny gently rubbed his back, pressing her face against his chest and closing her eyes. “Nothing’s going to happen to me, Chris. I promise. It...it’s Mary they want, not me.”

“Sorry,” Cole said to her. “My shoulder’s not feeling very good.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 16, 2018, 02:45:19 PM
"I know, I know," he said and held her tighter.

"Do you want me to call a nurse?" She asked, getting ready to stand up.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 17, 2018, 06:26:03 AM
"How can I help you feel better?" she asked him softly, squeezing him around the waist once.

Cole was about to protest, but instead he nodded. It was getting to be too much, but he didn't want to say so out loud.

(Aaaaaand I forgot to post for Andrew for a while :P They were going to the art building, right?)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 17, 2018, 06:42:24 AM
"You've done enough," Chris assured her, slowly letting go.

Clemence got up and buzzed for a nurse. Less than a minute passed and one came in, adjusting the dose of Cole's pain meds.

(Siii)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 17, 2018, 07:44:55 AM
Mary stepped out of her room, with her bag pack on ready to leave. She tossed her keys on her table and then she realised her sister sitting on the couch. “Andri. You’re here.” Her voice remained stoic.
“Darling, this is the longest you’ve been away.” Andri stood and held her arms out.
“Don’t touch me. This is what you do all the time. I don’t-“ She was cut off as Andri took a step forward.
“I don’t want to take you home. I want to... find what you’re seeking.” Her eyes looking for redemption, it was true. Andri has led her home, and watched her imprisoned, tortured. This time she wasn’t going to help that happen.
“Funny. Absouletely fucking funny. Don’t lie to me. Don’t you come here into my home and spread shit.” Her eyes were raw from crying as she was packing.

(Oui)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 17, 2018, 10:44:12 AM
Sunny took a step back to look into his eyes, but the sounds of a struggle coming from upstairs distracted her.
“Do you think...” she trailed off, biting her lip.

Cole stopped her once he started to feel light headed - any kind of pain medicine tended to do that to him, even the nitrous oxide at the dentist’s office - and he closed his eyes. Admittedly, though, his shoulder did feel much better.

Andrew took his case out of the kiln and carefully set it down on his desk to paint it. Luckily, this one had held together perfectly, and he didn’t expect to have any issues getting color on.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 17, 2018, 10:52:04 AM
Chris was focused on Sunny's face, and the fact that he really wanted to kiss her, but he was jarred from those thoughts by what she said. "We should check," he finally said with a sigh.

The nurse left and Clemence sat back down on the edge of his bed. She reached over and lightly brushed her fingers through his hair to fix it a bit.

Ferris was looking around the room, but when Andrew started painting he stopped to watch him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 17, 2018, 11:13:01 AM
In that moment, Mary felt tears fall from her cheeks and lowered her face. The facade that she put on, was never enough to conceal her vulnerability. Later then she felt her sister’s arms surround her, the warmth that she craved from a friend, made her finally break down. In Beaumont, she felt alone. She most alone she has ever felt. “There’s Nothing here to seek. Heck, there’s nothing for me here.” She struggled to catch her breath as her body shook, holding her sister tighter.

“Do you sell any of your stuff?” Addie asked, she knelt to the height of the new pottery and smiled.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 17, 2018, 01:04:11 PM
Sunny nodded and walked back up the stairs, holding his hand.

"That tickles," Cole mumbled, and smiled again. That dose had been high - he felt like he'd inhaled too much laughing gas at the dentist's office.

Andrew shook his head. "No, I don't sell anything. This is just a project for class."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 17, 2018, 01:25:02 PM
Chris squeezed her hand and followed her up.

"How do you feel?" Clemence smiled and set her hand in her lap.

"You should think about it," Ferris commented, his head tilted.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 17, 2018, 03:21:22 PM
”I feel...loopy. It’s weird.” Cole rubbed his eyes with his good hand. “Dammit, I need to get out of here.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 17, 2018, 03:23:58 PM
"You should probably just chill until the meds wear off," Clemence said, raising an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 18, 2018, 04:48:20 AM
"Why is everything in hospitals white? It's an ugly color. I hate it." Cole closed his eyes and tried to roll over on his side, but the IV in his hand prevented that. White reminded him of the moon, and the last thing he needed was to be surrounded by reminders that he was not human anymore.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 18, 2018, 05:01:31 AM
"It is kind of annoying, huh?" Clemence said sympathetically, tilting her head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 18, 2018, 07:58:33 AM
Andri looped her arm with Mary’s as they closed the door behind them and locked it. Mary did so without any fuss. She saw both of them, showing them her usual smile. “What’s got you riled?” She asked, her eyes were still raw from the crying but her sister had managed to calm her.

“Why don’t you?” Addie walked over the kiln and smiled at the warmth.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 18, 2018, 08:04:07 AM
"We heard...it sounded like a fight, and we just wanted to make sure you were okay. Who's this?" Sunny asked, her eyes going to Andri.

"White is obnoxious," Cole muttered, furrowing his brows. "And hospitals are the worst."

Andrew shrugged. "I don't know. I never really thought about it, in all honesty."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 18, 2018, 08:08:08 AM
Andri poked Mary's side and Mary tittered. "Sorry, this is my sister Adrianna..." Her sister poked her again, with more laughter coming from Mary.
"Andri, pleasure to meet you both." She kept her arm in Mary's and tugged her gently towards them.


"Well they are pleasing to the eye. Never mind... Are you teaching us tonight or is that too much for you?" Addie asked turning towards Andrew, with a smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 18, 2018, 11:38:41 AM
"Oh, um, hi," Chris said, waving awkwardly to Adrianna. "I'm Chris, this is Sunny. We're friends of Mary's," he explained.

"Agreed. Hopefully you can get out of here soon," Clemence sighed and glanced toward the doors to the room.

Ferris glanced over and raised an eyebrow. They hadn't talked about being taught, and throwing clay meant a lot of water which he was not down for. "I'll just watch at a safe distance if you do that," he said, staying near the table where Andrew was painting.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 18, 2018, 02:15:20 PM
"We heard - we heard something, and we wanted to make sure you were okay." Sunny glanced between the girls, furrowing her brows. Sister? One of the sisters you wanted to kill five minutes ago?

Cole nodded, his eyes drooping closed again.

"I...don't think the art department would be happy with that," Andrew said slowly. "Besides, I'm just painting today."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 18, 2018, 02:21:02 PM
Clemence smiled slightly and leaned over, kissing his forehead.

Ferris leaned down and watched him paint. "In my high school pottery class, this kid made the coolest sculpture of a Roman helmet. It deadass looked like a Roman artifact."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 19, 2018, 06:09:51 AM
Andri spoke for both of them as she held her tight. “Friends? So you made her cry?” She asked raising her brows.

“Ah my Swayze moment will just have to wait.” Addie snapped her fingers and chuckled.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 19, 2018, 07:10:53 AM
"We had an argument. Friends do that sometimes." Sunny raised an eyebrow back at her, copying her expression.

The corners of his lips tugged up into a small smile, and within seconds he was asleep again.

Andrew frowned, but wasn't sure what to say in response to that. So to Ferris, he said, "That sounds awesome."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 19, 2018, 07:19:32 AM
Andri burst out laughing and pulled her towards her friends. “It’s fine. She has moments, nice to meet you. She wanted to run away or something I just subdued her.”

Addie sat beside them and looked at the pottery with a smile.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 19, 2018, 07:40:30 AM
The word subdued rubbed Chris the wrong way, but he didn't say anything. "Uh, well, that's good then," he said, glancing between the sisters.

Clemence waited a bit to see if he was really asleep, then checked the time. She decided to sit in the chair for a bit just to make sure he didn't wake up, because she had a long while until she needed to meet with Andrew.

Ferris nodded in agreement. "My future archaeologist heart was singing," he chuckled.

(Sooooooo I had a thought)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 19, 2018, 07:47:15 AM
“Thank you looking after my sister. I hope she’s not been too difficult.” Andri finally let go of her sister. Mary looked up at her with a hurt expression, and created a space between them.

“How exciting.” Addie chirped as she leaned on the wall.
(Sharing is caring)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 19, 2018, 12:09:25 PM
(Tell us)

"Yeah. Yeah, no problem." Sunny instinctively scooted closer to Mary to pull her away from her sister.

Cole was out like a light within no time - and there were no strange dreams.

"I bet that took him a long time to do," Andrew said as he painted.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 19, 2018, 12:25:01 PM
[when we skip again we should skip to like...wolf times....]

Chris stayed where he was, keeping an eye on Mary's sister.

"Yeah, it took him at least two months I think," Ferris said, tilting his head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 19, 2018, 12:36:09 PM
(Sure thing:) )
Mary looked at her sister, the feelings that she harboured for her were mixed. She had been nice to her over the years, being the unfavored sibling Andri took pity on her and cared for her. Yet there was something about her that made her skin crawl, she couldn’t be trusted. She wanted to help her? Find a witch? Out of the blue? It was out of the ordinary.
“Andri was making her comfortable.” Mary spoke turning away from her. Andri has given her a calming image, something to soothe her from her stress. Again it made her skin crawl, the way she could get into her head like that.

“Patience is key I suppose with art.” Addie leaned back on her chair, with a calm expression. 
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 19, 2018, 12:47:18 PM
(Yaaaas)
(When do you guys wanna skip?)

Sunny stepped further away, nudging Mary along with her. "Well, it was nice to meet you, Andri, but we all have to get going."

Andrew nodded slowly. "Yeah, definitely. There's nothing quick about art."

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 19, 2018, 01:57:20 PM
(Okie we can do that)

When Cole woke up in the morning, he knew immediately it was the full moon. The crankiness and general hatred for the world were dead giveaways. It was going to be a fantastic day, he just knew.

Sunny chewed her lip as she looked over Chris' contact in her phone. She wanted to call and ask to grab lunch or something, but she wasn't sure how he'd respond to the question.

Andrew had spent almost the entire night before practicing with his throwing knives, and her, he didn't feel tired. Granted, he'd probably want to take a nap before the moon rose, but there was plenty of time for that.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 19, 2018, 02:05:31 PM
Cole glared at the sun shining through his window, then pulled the blankets up over his head. He squeezed his eyes shut and tried to will himself to go back to sleep, but it didn't work. Frustrated, he threw the covers off himself and got up to take a shower, hoping that'd help him feel better. He already knew what was coming that night, but he didn't want it to ruin everything about his day.

Ferris was doing some homework outside on a bench, just enjoying the sunshine. It was a nice day, he thought, but he'd been tracking the moon's cycle and knew tonight it was full. Which was stressful. That meant having to keep the wolves in a safe place, and keeping himself and the girls away from the water.

Clemence had spent the night doing target practice and some hand-to-hand work, and now she was cleaning her pistols. She wanted them to be pristine, since tonight was the first full moon she could test them out. She held a silver bullet up and inspected it closely, squinting as it glinted in the light and then set it with the others.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 19, 2018, 02:57:39 PM
Sunny finally decided to call him, and she left a message on his voicemail when he didn't pick up. She racked her brain, trying to think if Chris had ever told her what kind of comfort food he liked. He'd need a lot of it.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 19, 2018, 03:04:01 PM
[I DID IT AGAIN. Ugh i was doing so well too. Jdpxmdhsikdcncj.]

Chris got out of the shower and checked his phone, frowning when he saw a missed call from Sunny. He dried off and got dressed, then called her back.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 19, 2018, 03:10:32 PM
"Hey," Sunny said as she picked up the phone. "What are you up to?"

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 19, 2018, 03:11:48 PM
"Just got out of the shower. Sorry, I didn't listen to your voice mail. What's up?" He asked her, sitting on his bed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 19, 2018, 03:27:07 PM
She shrugged and stretched out her legs. They felt stiff and weird today, for some reason, and she decided that she was going to pretend the moon had nothing to do with it. Nothing at all. "Not much. I was gonna ask you if you wanted to grab lunch or dinner or something. My treat."

Chris ran his fingers through his still damp hair, mulling it over. "Do you want to come over instead? We could just make something. I don't really feel like going out," he admitted, though he did want to see her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 19, 2018, 03:53:07 PM
"Yeah, totally." Sunny broke out into a smile and started looking for her shoes. "I'll be over in ten."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 19, 2018, 04:00:44 PM
"See you then," Chris said and then hung up. He laid back on his bed and sighed, closing his eyes for a moment. He hoped nothing would go wrong for.today at least, but that wad wishful thinking.

Mary had woken early and went to college. The thought of her sister looking over her, she needed space from her. She buried herself in books in the library trying to distract her from her sister, from the moon, from Cole. If she was to stay in college she needed to pull something from the bag.

Addie had dried her hair from being at the gym. Endorphins raced through her body, today she felt was a good day. She fished out her phone from her gym bag and quickly texted Andrew. “Important plans tonight?”

Andri didn’t have the ability to read any minds, but to implement thoughts. She sat in her sisters apartment plotting. How was she going to win over her once again?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 20, 2018, 04:46:48 AM
Sunny walked over to Chris’ house, holding two cups of coffee from the cafe nearest her dorm. It took her longer to get there than usual, as she was trying not to spill the drinks, and once she was there, she delicately transferred one to the crook of her armpit so she could knock on the door.

Andrew felt his phone buzz as he sat in the car shop, waiting for his car to get done. The guy working on his car - some guy with a broken arm - was in a mood today, and he wasn’t looking forward to having to talk with him more. Andrew read the message and sent a reply: Yeah, I do, actually. What were you thinking?

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 20, 2018, 05:02:39 AM
Addie smiled as she quickly started to text back. “I wanted to do some training for tonight. Something hardcore.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 20, 2018, 05:16:47 AM
Chris got up when he heard the door, and it took him a second to get downstairs but he smiled when he saw Sunny standing there. "Hey," he said and stepped aside so she could come in.

Clemence put all of her stuff away, then grabbed her purse and headed out to go to the autoshop since her car was scheduled to be done.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 20, 2018, 05:44:47 AM
“Hey. Do you like coffee? I brought coffee.” Sunny smiled back at him and handed him the cup.

Andrew frowned as he sent back, Well, uh, I think the rec center has some good classes for that.

Cole managed to fix Andrew’s car in no time, and soon they were both in the main office, going over the bill.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 20, 2018, 05:47:50 AM
Addie felt her cheeks warm up and texted back. Lame excuse to hang out heh. But that’d be cool to hang out again.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 20, 2018, 05:55:30 AM
"Thanks," Chris held the cup and looked down at it for a moment, then smiled at Sunny. "So, anything in mind for what to make?"

Clemence got there and sat down in the main area to wait for someone to come out. She played on her phone, tapping her foot a bit.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 20, 2018, 06:16:32 AM
Sunny shrugged. “What are you hungry for?” She asked him.

Andrew didn’t reply to the text until he was on his way out of the shop. Yeah, sure. I just can’t tonight. What are you up to this weekend?
As he walked, he accidentally stepped on Clemence’s foot,and he quickly apologized as he looked up at her. “Aw, crap, I’m sor - oh, hey Clemence.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 20, 2018, 06:19:18 AM
"Uh, anything, I guess," Chris shrugged. "Lemme see what's in the kitchen," he said and turned to go in there.

"Hey, Andrew," Clemence blinked at him, surprised. "Car troubles?" She asked, tilting her head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 20, 2018, 06:52:41 AM
Hoping to see you now of course. Let’s go for a boat ride? Addie replied biting her lip, was she being too forward?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 20, 2018, 06:57:52 AM
Sunny followed Chris inside and shut the door behind her. "Do you like shrimp at all? My mom taught me how to make homemade shrimp alfredo."

Andrew felt his phone buzz, and told himself he'd reply after he was done talking to Clemence. "Yeah, unfortunately. Dodges are all pieces of shit. Don't ever buy one."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 20, 2018, 07:00:10 AM
"That sounds great," Chris smiled and then got a pot out and checked what pasta they had in the cupboard.

"Noted," Clemence laughed softly. "I have to pick my car up, finally, but text me with details about tonight, alright?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 20, 2018, 07:09:32 AM
Mary finally finished her essay and electronically sent it. She sighed and started to text Ferris. “What’s your plans for tonight? Locking yourself in a panic room?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 20, 2018, 09:16:40 AM
Sunny pilfered their fridge, looking for the rest of the ingredients. Milk, check. Cream cheese, butter, whipping cream, check. Hopefully they had the right herbs and spices, too.

"Yeah, definitely. See you soon." Andrew nodded once at her and continued out the door. He then pulled out his phone and sent another response to Addie: Sure, that sounds good.

Cole filed the paperwork in its place, and smiled when he looked up and saw Clemence. That was one good thing today, at least.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 20, 2018, 09:39:40 AM
"What else do we need?" Chris asked when he looked over everything they'd gathered on the counter.

Clemence smiled back when her eyes met Cole's. "Back at work already?" she asked as she walked up to the counter and eyed his broken arm.

Probably. You? Ferris texted her back and sighed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 20, 2018, 09:45:06 AM
If you’re free right now we could meet up for coffee? Addie gathered her book bag and started to drive to school.

Can we meet up? Need to catch you up on things. Mary finished her coffee and made her way out of the library.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 20, 2018, 09:57:10 AM
“Garlic, oregano, rosemary, thyme, and...cheese. Lots of cheese.” Sunny ran the list through her mind again and nodded when she was certain she’d remembered everything. “Where do you guys keep the spices?”

Yeah, I’m free. Let’s go to Coffee Peddlar. Andrew slid his phone back in his pocket and began walking to the shop.

Cole nodded. “Back at work already. I gotta pay my bills somehow.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 20, 2018, 10:00:31 AM
"Over here," Chris brushed past her to get to one of the cabinets and pulled a spice rack his mom had given him down. It had plenty of spices, and he barely used any of them. "Take your pick," he said, holding them out to her.

"That's fair, but is that safe?" She raised an eyebrow, looking worried. "I mean, you've also got to heal."

Sure, where at? Ferris asked, closing up his books and putting them away.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 20, 2018, 10:13:04 AM
Addie pulled out in front of the coffee shop and turned off her engine. As she did so she found herself tidying her hair, and with a puzzled expression she smiled and went into the store. She ordered two coffees and sat herself down.

I’m already at campus, meet me outside in the quad? Mary sighed out, she had to come clean to Ferris after last night it was time to tell her secrets.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 20, 2018, 10:46:49 AM
Sunny grabbed the appropriate seasonings and set them on the counter. “Perfect. Thanks.” On impulse, she leaned up and kissed his cheek, then turned back to start making the meal.

Andrew was not far behind, and he soon spotted Addie in the shop. “Hey, what’s up?” he said as he sat down.

“I’ll be fine.” Cole shrugged, and thought, Besides, chances are my insane wolf form will end up re-breaking it, and I’ll have to start over with healing anyway.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 20, 2018, 02:34:01 PM
Chris short circuited for a second, but then a smile bloomed across his face. He leaned back against the counter next to the stove and watched as she worked.

"If you say so," Clemence shrugged and rested an elbow on the counter, glancing over him.

Sure Ferris wrote back and went out to meet her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 20, 2018, 11:06:31 PM
Addie slid his coffee cup with a smile and shook her head. “Just a coffee break before lesson. And I wanted that break with you I suppose.”

Mary shuffled a little to make room for Ferris. “Didn’t disturb you did I?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 21, 2018, 02:37:47 AM
Once the pasta noodles, the shrimp, and the sauce we're all cooking, Sunny turned to face him and loosely wrapped her arms around his neck. She had to stand on the tips of her toes to reach. "How are you feeling today?" she asked.

"Well, I'm flattered." Andrew smiled and took a sip of the coffee. "Any plans for today?"

Cole nodded once, and then cleared his throat to change the subject. "All right, so Greg should be finished with your car; do you want to take a look at it?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 21, 2018, 02:53:29 AM
Chris smiled and wound his arms around her waist. "Better, now. Thanks for this," he said, looking at her sincerely.

"Yeah, thanks," Clemence nodded and stood up again, adjusting her bag on her shoulder.

"Nah," Ferris shook his head. "So what's up?" he asked, tilting his head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 21, 2018, 03:25:08 AM
Addie shook her head and leaned on her arm. “Just hanging out with some people from class, since you were busy tonight.”

Mary took a deep breath and explained to him where her origins were really from, and her past and how her sister was here. After it all she sighed and smiled small. “Are you pissed?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 21, 2018, 03:43:15 AM
"Yeah, no problem." Sunny smiled back, her eyes going to his lips. She wanted to kiss him. But would he grow gills if she did? Would he even be okay with that?

Andrew nodded once. "That sounds like fun."

Cole stood up and walked with her into the shop, leading her over to Greg, and her car. Greg was taking a drink from his water bottle, and the Saturn was in the ground, ready to go.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 21, 2018, 03:45:19 AM
“So what’s urgent that you had to say no to plans with me?” Addie leaned back slightly and sipped her coffee, she dabbed her lips with a napkin and smiled.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 21, 2018, 03:59:27 AM
Chris watched her gaze, and he had an idea what she was thinking about because he was thinking the same thing. Did it happen only when they were in water? He didn't think he could handle being with her and not being able to do anything...besides, the gills didn't really seem to bother Cole that much. His life was already a freakshow anyway, what was one more thing? Chris smiled slightly and leaned down, his nose brushing against hers as their foreheads touched. "This okay?" he asked softly.

Clemence bounced up on her toes excitedly when she saw her car, then turned and hugged Cole quickly before going over to thank Greg. "So how much?" she asked, looking at her car. Now she'd be able to drive and it wouldn't take her 20 minutes to get anywhere.

Ferris was silent the entire time that Mary explained, his expression unreadable. When she finished he took a deep breath, but wasn't sure what to say. "No, I'm not mad," he finally settled on. Out of all the emotions he felt, angry wasn't really one. Sure, it sucked that she'd kept it from them, but he didn't know what her family was like. He didn't want to judge. "So if you're like, a real mermaid, how'd Sunny and I get like this? Do you know?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 21, 2018, 09:28:15 AM
"Mm-hmm." Sunny nodded and wound her fingers through his hair, closing her eyes.

"I have business to take care of tonight." Andrew decided not to say anything more than that. The less Addie knew about the specifics, the better.

Greg told her the amount, and wiped his hands on a nearby towel. "'Course, the billing gets a little wonky when tryin' to split it two ways, but we kept it as low for ya as we could."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 21, 2018, 09:40:08 AM
Mary brought her hands together again, she took another breath and tried to briefly explain the history of the mermaids. All that she knew was just the basics, her parents taught her. Only of what they knew. “God Ferris I’m sorry...”

“Sounds serious, like you’re an assassin or something.” Addie chuckled and ordered a slice of cake. “Would you like something else?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 21, 2018, 09:54:47 AM
Chris smiled more, then closed the space between them and pressed his lips to hers. To say it plainly, it had been a long time coming now and it was definitely worth it.

Clemence nodded quickly. "Yeah, no problem," she said and pulled out her wallet. "Card or check work better?" she asked.

Ferris raised his eyebrows. "Hey, it's all good. We'll figure something out, right?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 21, 2018, 11:01:15 AM
“Yeah, of course.” Mary looked back up at him with a small smile. “Don’t let Andri near you she’s manipulative okay? And also what’s the plan for the boys tonight?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 21, 2018, 12:46:45 PM
Sunny kept the kiss gentle, breathing slowly through her nose. After a few seconds, she pulled away slightly and said, "I'm gonna apologize in advance if you can never take a normal shower again."

"Nah, I'm good. I actually just ate breakfast," Andrew said, and took another sip of his coffee.

"Check'll be fine. I just have to see an ID, miss." Greg took another sip of his water bottle, and Cole reached out to squeeze Clemence's hand softly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 21, 2018, 12:49:15 PM
"Who cares?" Chris laughed and beamed at her, his mood completely lifted. He'd almost forgotten about the moon that night - almost.

Clemence glanced at Cole and smiled softly, then reached into her bag and pulled her ID out, handing it to Greg before she released Cole's hand to write out the check quickly.

"No clue. We should probably text them to see," Ferris said, pulling his phone out.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 22, 2018, 03:30:32 AM
Sunny smiled back, wide enough to show all her teeth, and she leaned up to kiss him again. This one, though, was brief, and she pulled away soon after to check the alfredo sauce.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 22, 2018, 05:45:39 AM
Chris grinned and let her cook for a minute, then came over and wrapped his arms around her waist and put his head on her shoulder. "How's it coming?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 22, 2018, 06:11:34 AM
"Good." Sunny paused and let her hand rest on Chris' face. "It'll be ready real soon."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 22, 2018, 06:19:07 AM
"Awesome," he kissed her cheek and then turned away to get some bowls and forks out for them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 22, 2018, 07:26:02 AM
Addie took a bite of her cake and drank her coffee. “So What or whom do you need taking care of tonight?”

“You text Chris... I think I’ve pissed him off too much. I’ll text Cole.” Mary put her hair up, and quickly dropped a text to Cole. How are you looking after yourself tonight? btw are you feeling better?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 22, 2018, 09:12:37 AM
Sunny smiled to herself, happy that she'd been able to cheer him up. Even though she couldn't stop the full moon, she could at least make him pasta, and she supposed that would have to be enough. She turned the burner for the sauce down low so it could simmer, strained the noodles and shrimp of excess water, and combined them into the sauce pan to melt together, adding extra cheese on top.

Andrew paused, thinking of how to answer that. He couldn't exactly tell Addie the truth; it would put her in way too much danger. So he said, "I can't tell you that."

Cole watched the exchange, as Greg verified Clemence's information and went over the final details with her. He felt his phone go off in his pocket, and he sent a reply: I don't have a plan. And yeah, I'm fine.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 22, 2018, 09:36:19 AM
"It smells awesome," Chris said happily and brought the bowls over.

Clemence finished up and then turned toward Cole. "When are you off today?" She asked, twirling her keys around her finger.

Ferris nodded and sent a text to Chris, just asking what the plan was.
Chris stopped what he was doing and then frowned, unsure. Haven't got one. Any ideas?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 22, 2018, 11:39:54 AM
"Thanks. Hopefully it tastes just as awesome as it smells." Sunny smiled and scooped their portions into the bowls as she turned the burner off. She then noticed his frown, and furrowed her own brows in response. "Something wrong?"

"I'm off at five. Wanna do dinner?" Cole asked, smiling softly. It would be something fun to do before that night. And if they went right away, there would be plenty of time before moonrise.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 22, 2018, 02:54:42 PM
"Uh, Ferris texted me. I don't really have a plan for tonight," he said, looking up at her.

"Yeah, that sounds good. Where at?" She asked, adjusting the strap of her bag on her shoulder.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 23, 2018, 03:15:42 AM
"I guess we should probably make one, huh?" Sunny said, mostly to herself, as she set the food down in the kitchen table.

Andrew paused, thinking of how to answer that. He couldn't exactly tell Addie the truth; it would put her in way too much danger. So he said, "I can't tell you that."

"Mm, I dunno. What are you hungry for?" Cole asked, leaning up against the car.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 23, 2018, 04:00:54 AM
"Probably," Chris shrugged and sighed, then went to go sit down. That wasn't really something he wanted to think about.

"I'm good with anything," Clemence shrugged. "Um, pizza?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 23, 2018, 04:18:34 AM
Sunny came up behind him and hugged him around the shoulders. "We don't have to think of that yet," she murmured. "It can wait for later."

"Yeah, pizza sounds good." Cole smiled and leaned down to kiss her forehead. So far, this was the easiest pre-full moon day he'd had in a while. Maybe the whole seeing someone thing was worth it after all.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 23, 2018, 04:29:42 AM
Chris put his hands on her arms and sighed, then smiled. "Yeah, you're right," he said quietly.

Clemence smiled, then reached out and squeezed his good hand. "Okay, I'll see you later," she said and kissed his lips quickly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 23, 2018, 04:47:28 AM
Sunny smiled and kissed his cheek, then sat down next to him to eat.

Cole kissed her back and squeezed her hand once she pulled away. "Great. I'll see you then."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 23, 2018, 04:54:51 AM
Chris started eating, pausing when he realized how good it was. "This is awesome," he said to her.

Clemence nodded and then climbed into her car to leave.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 23, 2018, 06:21:07 AM
Addie chuckled slightly and nodded. “Alright then mystery man don’t tell me. I hope you know what you’re doing.”

Bondage sounds like a good idea! Mary texted back as she leaned back. She groaned and closed her eyes. “What did we try last time again?” She asked Ferris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 23, 2018, 09:02:44 AM
"You think so?" Sunny beamed, pausing with her fork halfway to her mouth.

"I'll be fine," Andrew assured her. He thought. This would be his first attempt to actually go after them. Hopefully he and Clemence could keep themselves alive.

Cole watched her drive away, then went back to work, as usual.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 23, 2018, 09:06:32 AM
"Yeah, definitely," Chris nodded and went back to eating.

"Uh...nothing really, if I remember right," Ferris shrugged. "Anyone of us have a basement? We could try to lock them down there for the night."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 23, 2018, 09:08:49 AM
"Any classes today?" Addie asked for the bill, and gave more than she was expected to.


Mary shook her head and pursed her lips, she thought for a moment and chuckled. "Well... I do have someone in mind. I don't know what she'll make of our wolf friends but I don't think she'll care."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 23, 2018, 09:26:30 AM
Sunny smiled again and went back to eating. She was worried about the moon that night, but she knew she couldn't do anything about it, and thus tried to put it out of her mind. But she kept thinking of how best to keep the boys safe, as well as keeping herself, Ferris, and Mary away from the ocean.

Andrew nodded. "Yeah, I have two more today. You?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 23, 2018, 09:28:41 AM
Chris finished up, then leaned back in his chair and stared at the ceiling.

"Who?" Ferris asked, frowning.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 23, 2018, 09:40:45 AM
“And what’re you studying again?” Addie leaned towards Andrew with a smile.

“Adeline of course. She’s wanting in, so why not?” Mary shrugged with a smirk.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 23, 2018, 09:49:55 AM
"She doesn't know about Chris and Cole, and that's not really our call," Ferris frowned even more.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 23, 2018, 10:46:32 AM
Sunny leaned forward, resting her chin on her hand. "What are you thinking about?"

"Art therapy," he said, and took another sip of his coffee. "I need to start looking at grad school."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 23, 2018, 11:09:46 AM
"The sky," he said and frowned slightly. Even though he couldn't see it, he always thought about the sky. It was something about 'having his head in the clouds' like his mom always told him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 23, 2018, 11:46:07 AM
She smiled again, watching him. "Yeah? What about the sky?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 23, 2018, 12:42:44 PM
"Stars, mostly. I just want to see them, you know?" He turned his head to the side and looked over at her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 24, 2018, 02:01:11 AM
Sunny nodded. "Yeah, I get that. The stars are really pretty."
Was it too obvious that she didn't know a lot about stars, she wondered?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 24, 2018, 02:03:24 AM
Chris smiled a bit and nodded. "Yeah," he sighed and sat up. "I'll take you star gazing some time."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 24, 2018, 07:20:31 AM
"That'll be fun." She smiled and reached over to play with his fingers. "You can tell me about all the constellations, cause I don't know anything about them."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 24, 2018, 07:23:45 AM
That made him smile even more. "I've got lots of constellations I can talk about."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 24, 2018, 07:53:00 AM
"I'm looking forward to it." Sunny scooted her chair closer and laid her head on his shoulder.

Sunny furrowed her brows as she glanced around the basement. Yeah, it was spacious and roomy, just like the rest of Addie’s house, but she doubted it would be big enough to house two werewolves, even if for a night. Would the boys hurt each other if they didn’t have enough space? But there wasn’t time to think of another plan; the sun was about to set.

Cole fidgeted with the hem of his shirt using his good hand. Yeah, he definitely knew his arm would be broken again in the morning, and he’d be back to square one with healing. It was at this time of day where Cole could practically feel the change coming on, a threat growing ever closer. Dinner with Clemence had been a good distraction, but nothing ever really took his mind off the curse.

Andrew packed his weapons, making a mental tally of them as he went. His gun and ammo. His throwing knives. And, of course, the healing salve Lady Snake had given him before the last full moon. He and Clemence would need it if they got hurt tonight.

Chris leaned against the wall, his arms crossed as he kept his gaze on the floor. This all seemed relatively sketch to him, but it was the best option they had for the time being. Still, he was worried about what they'd do if they got out. He still didn't really know what happened when they transformed.

Ferris checked the doors and windows, trying to make sure they'd stay as secure as possible. He walked back over to the others and took a deep breath. "That's about as good as it'll get, I think."

Clemence finished tying up her boots and checked her pack. Both guns were in their holsters on her hip, bullets on one side as well. There were some that were just normal, others were pure silver. She put a dagger on her calf, though she didn't really feel like she'd need it tonight. Finally, she pulled up the half face mask to conceal herself for the most part and headed out to go meet Andrew.

(I’m so Ill man 😭😭)

Addie rubbed her hands together and breathed out. She felt nervous about this, but she knew she couldn’t back on her word. She approached Sunny and eyed up the new boy she didn’t see before. “I hope this is alright for you? I mean... Mary was adamant for the basement.”

Mary walked around the room then walked up Ferris. “Hm. Bolt locks would be better but I suppose it’ll do.” She sighed and turned to look at the boys for a moment.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 24, 2018, 11:45:49 AM
“Hmm? Oh, yeah, yeah, it’s great. Thanks, Addie.” Sunny couldn’t help but wonder what exactly Mary had said to get Addie to agree to this, but she wasn’t sure she wanted to find out. “You’re not gonna stay here all night, right?”

Cole felt eyes on him, and looked up to see it was Mary. He nodded at her once in greeting, then went back to looking down at his shoes.

Andrew drove to the local park, where he and Clemence had agreed to meet, and waited for her on a bench. Hopefully no one was going to stare at him, although he had to admit he looked funny to regular people - weapons hidden all over him, fingerless gloves to give him a good grip, knee and elbow pads in case he got knocked around. He just hoped he didn’t look too much like a dunce.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 24, 2018, 11:48:43 AM
“Yeah Mary’s sister is kinda persuasive.” Addie nervously placed her hand on the nape of her neck and coughed. “No, she told me to stay at hers. Said that she’d clean the place up.”

Mary coughed and beckoned Sunny over. “Yeah, let’s not dillydally. We’ve got to be someplace else.” She snapped, she turned away the room and exited swiftly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 24, 2018, 12:17:32 PM
Chris hesitated a second, then stood and went over to Sunny, touching her wrist lightly. "Hey, um, stay...stay safe tonight, okay?" he said quietly, his head tilted down slightly.

Ferris pursed his lips in mild annoyance, then sighed and went to follow Mary, waving to Cole before he went out the door.

Clemence came up to the park and walked to the bench Andrew was at, putting a hand on her waist as she looked him over for a second. "Well, you ready?" she asked, looking up at the sky. The sun was starting to go down, so it was pretty much time.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 24, 2018, 01:08:00 PM
"I will. You too." Sunny hesitated, but then leaned up to briefly kiss his lips. "I'll be thinking of you."

Cole nodded in response, and slowly began taking off his shoes and socks. He wanted to preserve some of his clothes tonight.

Andrew nodded and stood up. "Yeah, definitely. You?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 24, 2018, 02:11:48 PM
Chris kissed her back quickly and then stepped away, glancing toward the door. "You should go," he said and let his hands fall to his sides.

"Yeah," Clemence nodded and adjusted the mask. "Let's go, then."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 25, 2018, 02:52:31 AM
Sunny opened her mouth to say something, anything, to try  comforting him. But no words would come, and so she just blew Chris another kiss and walked out of the room, locking the door behind her.

Cole sat down on the ground with his eyes closed. The waiting was easily the worst part, he thought. He just wanted to get this over with.

"Great." Andrew wasn't sure where to begin looking for the werewolves, be he had a feeling that they would know once the moon rose.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 25, 2018, 03:25:49 AM
Addie closed the door shut and breathed out. “So what’s the plan for you guys then?” She asked placing the key in her pocket.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 25, 2018, 03:29:17 AM
Chris stared at the door and winced when he heard it lock, then took his socks and shoes off and sat down against the wall, leaning his head back and closing his eyes.

Ferris shrugged. "We just have to stay inside," he said, looking at the girls.

Clemence paused to look up at the sky. "Moon'll be up soon."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 25, 2018, 03:34:28 AM
Andrew nodded, watching the moon rise. As it did, he felt a strange sensation in his head, as if his mind were expanding, honing in on the wolves.

Sunny nodded slowly and bit her lip. Already, she was itching
to go swimming, but she knew that was a bad idea. "Yeah. Yea, I have lab homework anyway."

Cole couldn't hold in the scream that escaped him as the change set in. Pain wracked his body, and somewhere in what was left of his conscious mind, he felt his arm snap again. Perfect. Just perfect, he thought, and that was the last  thought he had.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 25, 2018, 04:08:24 AM
Clemence took a steady breath and closed her eyes, letting her senses focus in to find the wolves.

"We should stay together, too, just in case," Ferris added.

Chris held his head in his hands as the pain wrought havoc through his body. Luckily, it was only a moment before he completely blacked out.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 25, 2018, 04:17:41 AM
“And who’s place it better to stay at?” Mary asked as she slid on her coat.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 25, 2018, 04:25:37 AM
"I think I got 'em," Andrew said after a few seconds. Southwest. Just a few miles away. It would be an easy on foot trip. "What about you?"

Sunny shrugged, looking down at her feet. She was not going to look at the moon tonight. Or the beach. Or anything, really, aside from her lab book. "Whose house has the least amount of windows?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 25, 2018, 04:34:17 AM
Clemence opened her eyes and nodded to him. "Yeah, come on, let's go," she said.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 25, 2018, 08:02:57 AM
“Mine? Besides I live on the fourth floor.” Mary shrugged and slipped on her sunglasses. “Is that... okay?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 25, 2018, 08:06:25 AM
"I think so. What about you, Ferris?" Sunny asked, turning towards him for his opinion.

Andrew nodded and took off running.

The broken front leg annoyed the wolf, but it was easy enough to ignore. He was too busy attempting to break the window with his head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 25, 2018, 08:51:15 AM
Ferris looked up at her and blinked, then shrugged. "Yeah, Mary's place is fine," he said but then hesitated, glancing toward the basement.

Clemence hesitated, an unfamiliar and unwelcome feeling curling in her stomach. She tried her best to push her worries away and took off running after Andrew, quickly forgetting. She had only one thing on her mind right now, and it was to get to those wolves and take care of this.

The other wolf came up to the window, using his claws to swipe at the glass to weaken it. He put several scratches through it, making it easier to break.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 25, 2018, 10:31:01 AM
Mary placed her arms around them all and looked back too. “Come on, let’s not linger.” She ushered them out of the house. She felt nervous staying here for too long.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 25, 2018, 12:23:03 PM
"Wait, where's Addie?" Sunny asked, glancing around for her. "She's coming with us, isn't she?"

Wolf-Cole didn't want to put his weight on the injured leg, nor did he want to use it to break the glass, but the two wolves together soon got it open, and Wolf-Cole hurried outside. The glass shards tore at his coat and skin, but that wasn't important. Only the hunt mattered.

It wasn't long before Andrew had arrived  at the wolves' location: Addie's house.
"This can't be right," he said to himself, slowing to a stop. There's no way the wolves would be this close to the town, right? Not yet, anyway. Had he gotten the signal messed up?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 25, 2018, 02:21:41 PM
Ferris hesitated and then shrugged. However, his blood soon ran cold when he heard the sound of glass.

The other wolf followed suit, clawing his way out. He managed to run ahead of his wounded counterpart, but didn't stray far. They were a pack, afterall.

'This is that girl's house," Clemence said, her eyes going wide. She took a moment, letting her senses focus again. "Come on, I think they're moving."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 25, 2018, 11:44:31 PM
Addie caught up to them and slung her backpack on her back. “Do you know the idea of waiting?” She asked panting, she drew out her car keys. “I suppose I should drive, in case you drive us into the sea?”

Mary looked behind her and nodded. “Yeah Whatever just get us out of here.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 26, 2018, 02:13:34 AM
Sunny glanced between the group, and then back towards the house. "Was that glass?" she asked, dread knotting in her stomach.

The first wolf managed to keep up with his counterpart, for the most part, and let him lead the way.

"Right. Yeah, they are." Andrew took off after them again, waiting for Clemence to catch up.

(I'm working literally all day today so I won't be able to reply until my lunch break, and then when I get off.)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 26, 2018, 03:04:19 AM
(Okay!)

Ferris looked at Sunny and nodded. "Yeah, I think so," he said worriedly.

He went straight for the woods, avoiding the roads. They traveled relatively quickly, despite one of them being hurt, and were under the tree cover in no time.

Clemence went after Andrew, catching up quickly. The wolves didn't seem to be moving as fast as she had expected.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 26, 2018, 03:07:18 AM
(Have a good one!)
Mary placed her hand on her forearm. "Come on, there's nothing we can do now Sunny. We have to get going ourselves."


Addie watched and tensed up and watched them run into the woods. "Will they be okay?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 26, 2018, 07:10:31 AM
Sunny chewed on her lip, debating. Mary was right; the boys had survived together on full moons before, and even if she did try to go after them, they probably wouldn't know her. So she really had no other choice.
"I think they will," she said in response to Addie, and reluctantly went with them out the door.

"I think one of them's injured," Andrew said as they caught up to the wolves. He pointed to the one on the left and said, "See how that one's favoring its front leg?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 26, 2018, 09:24:58 AM
Addie unlocked her car and started up the engine. She just wanted to not be in the crossfire. “Let’s hurry guys.”

Mary sat in the front seat and drummed on the dashboard. “More inland okay? And lock the doors.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 26, 2018, 09:34:22 AM
Ferris frowned but followed them to the car, climbing in.

Clemence watched it run, her eyes narrowing. "Good, that'll make this easier." She said.

(Question: in this world, is it if the wolves bite OR scratch someone do they turn or is it only if they're bitten or can they even get turned that way lmao)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 26, 2018, 11:44:35 AM
(They can. A scratch is 50/50, a bite is for sure. But it won't work on the hunters; bites and scratches can seriously injure or even kill them.)

Sunny glanced at Ferris, unsure of this plan, but she followed them in anyway.

"Do you want that one, or is that a sexist question?" Andrew grinned good naturedly.

The injured wolf turned when he heard new sounds, snarling at whatever was following them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 26, 2018, 11:46:50 AM
[Okay dope dope cool]

Clemence looked at Andrew and rolled her eyes. "I'll take it anyway," she said, glancing toward the other one that wasn't hurt before she altered her direction slightly to better follow the wounded wolf. "You ready for this?" she asked Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 27, 2018, 02:24:18 AM
Addie started to drive, taking Mary's instruction and kept looking at her back mirror. "Surely there must be more of you, uh... roaming about tonight." Her fingers quickly touched to put the radio on, to hopefully distract them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 27, 2018, 02:58:28 AM
Sunny frowned at the comment, but didn’t say anything. She slid her headphones into her ears and turned on her music to keep her mind off of worrying about Chris.

“Ready as I’ll ever be.” Andrew shrugged and angled his body towards the other wolf, launching one of his throwing knives at it.

The wounded wolf turned his head toward Clemence and snared a final warning at her: Back off. I’m not interested in you. Even though he had a bad leg, he was willing to fight.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 27, 2018, 03:41:35 AM
Ferris looked over at Sunny and touched her arm, hoping to comfort her somewhat.

The other wolf heard the knife fly past his ear, just barely missing. He turned and snarled at whoever threw it, teeth bared menacingly.

Clemence narrowed her eyes at the wolf. Yeah, she got the message, but that didn't stop her from grabbing one of her pistols and aiming for the beast.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 27, 2018, 05:37:29 AM
Mary closed her eyes listening to the music and sighed calmly. The call was getting stronger, her parents were calling her home. She pressed her hand on the condensed window and all the water seeped to her hands, she smiled and made a small water bubble, and she kept controlling the size.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 27, 2018, 06:47:05 AM
Sunny looked up at Ferris and managed a small smile. She glanced out the window, towards the ocean, and her chest tightened. She wanted to go out there, more than anything. To Saleran - except...no, she wasn’t Salerian. Mary was. But Sunny was not. Whatever city or colony lay under the waters of the Atlantic, waiting for her, it wasn’t Mary’s home.

Andrew swore under his breath and reached for another knife. How had he missed? That had been a great throw!
But there was no time to think of that now. The knife he held was probably too small to kill the creature - this thing was a lot bigger than a normal wolf - but if he could at least wound it, then he’d be in business for the kill shot.

The wounded wolf charged at Clemence, any pain or discomfort from his wounded leg forgotten about now. He swiped at her with his good leg; nw that she’d pissed him off, he wasn’t going to hold back.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 27, 2018, 06:51:44 AM
(So okay if a hunter gets scratched by a wolf, it's really bad but they don't turn?)

The wolf growled again, a low rumble that made the ground under him shudder. He took a split second before rushing at Andrew, jaws snapping.

Clemence managed to dodge the swipe, jumping out of the way. Her pistol would be pretty useless in a close proximity, so she quickly grabbed the dagger from her boot as a back up in her other hand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 27, 2018, 07:05:58 AM
"My sister's probably gone back home." Mary replied as she told her to pull up near her apartment. "To weak to ignore... the call. Come on, let's get you guys up there." She replied wistfully, she faced in the direction of the sea and sighed.


Addie turned off the engine and looked at Ferris, "did you manage to get any information about you mers? Anything useful?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 27, 2018, 07:09:38 AM
(Yeppers!)
(Also should I post more world building stuff in the Roleplay Discussions thread? Would that be useful to y’all?)

Sunny got out of the car once the door was unlocked, and headed straight for the door to the apartment complex.

Andrew threw the next knife at the wolf, aiming for the shoulder joint but not looking back to see where it hit, and ran for the nearest tree. He jumped and grabbed one of the branches, hopefully high enough to get out of the wolf’s reach. Andrew did not want to get bitten by those teeth. Once he’d scrambled up onto the branch, he pulled out his pistol and aimed it at the animal’s head.

The wolf ran towards her again, growling low in his throat, and head butted Clemence, trying to knock her off her feet.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 27, 2018, 07:14:07 AM
[Yeee]

"Um, I haven't really looked," Ferris said to her as he got out of the car. To be completely honest, he wasn't sure he believed anything that he'd find in the books. What family just had a bunch of mermaid lore laying around in some wackadoo Beauty and the Beast library? He wasn't buying that any of it would be useful.

The knife nicked his shoulder, just barely, but it was enough for the wolf to let out a yelp of pain and slowed him down just barely.

With an 'oof', Clemence started going back but grabbed onto the wolf's fur. With the extra strength she got from being a hunter, she was able to hold on and brandished the dagger, aiming for the wolf's bad side with it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 27, 2018, 07:19:40 AM
Addie nodded and shrugged. "Yeah well, just uh keep it. Never knew if you'll ever need it." She was then ushered in by Mary, as she tugged on her arm as well as Ferris'.
"Wine and smokes upstairs, let's go." Mary replied opening the door for them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 27, 2018, 07:31:57 AM
(Okay. What do you guys wanna know?)

“Wine, huh?” Sunny mumbled as she followed the others upstairs. She hadn’t tried wine before, but there was a first time for everything.

Andrew kicked at the wolf’s face with his foot, and pulled the trigger. He was disappointed to discover that he’d missed.

The wolf yelped in pain and shrugged Clemence off, pushing her to the ground.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 27, 2018, 08:03:34 AM
"I don't drink wine," Ferris frowned as he was pulled along.

The wolf paused, then jumped up again to try and get at Andrew's leg, snapping his jaws.

The wind was knocked out of her, and she struggled to regain her breath as well as a hold on her weapon. Clemence reached up to try and push the wolf off, but something stalled out in her brain as her eyes found the wolf's. She didn't know why, but something about them was...off. In the way that they were too human, too familiar.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 27, 2018, 08:09:17 AM
“I don’t care, you do now.” Mary took the wine bottle out of her bag that she stole from Addie’s home. “Ta-dah. I hope this is a good year!” Mary nudged  her with a click of her tongue.
“Hey! That’s a good year too!” She exclaimed trying to grab the bottle from her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 27, 2018, 08:48:36 AM
Sunny smiled briefly and rolled her eyes. She found herself staring out a window again, wishing she could go out to the beach. For several minutes, she didn’t move from that spot.

Andrew pulled his leg up out of the way, just barely avoiding getting caught. He looked over at Clemence, but she was having her own problems. So Andrew tried shooting the wolf again, but he nearly fell out of the tree, and he felt his shoulder pop out of its socket as he grabbed the beach on his way down.

The wolf stared at Clemence for a second, then snarled again and turned away, running to go help his counterpart with Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 27, 2018, 09:06:21 AM
Ferris raised an eyebrow at Mary and Addie, though he really didn't have an interest in wine. He sighed and adjusted his bag on his shoulder and went to try and find somewhere to sit and do his homework.

Clemence tried to collect herself, then immediately jumped up and ran after the wolf to stop them from hurting Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 27, 2018, 09:12:07 AM
Mary went to the kitchen and uncorked the wine and poured a glass for herself, she then joined with Sunny. “Have you just tried to sleep it off?”

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 27, 2018, 10:24:37 AM
“Hmm?” It took a moment for her to register what Mary had said. Sunny blinked and turned away from the window. “Oh. Uh, no, I haven’t tried that.” And tonight, with the moon being full, the call was stronger than ever.

“Clemence, we may have to abort mission!” Andrew yelled down to her. His hand was slipping from the branch, the wolves waiting below.

The wounded one snarled at Andrew again, trying to jump up at him. Andrew kept kicking, though, which irritated him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 27, 2018, 01:42:31 PM
"How do you suggest we do that?" Clemence yelled back, lifting her gun and aiming a shot at the wolves to distract them from Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 28, 2018, 02:12:31 AM
“Hey we’ll watch some TV let’s get away from the window.” Mary softly turned her away from her windows, and drew them. She had put the lights on a dim setting and gulped down wine.

Addie had settled and she herself poured some wine. She went to sit on the dining room table.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 03:16:18 AM
Sunny reluctantly followed Mary into the kitchen, but now she could hear the ocean's song in her mind. She could ignore it for now, but she wasn't sure how long her will power would last. Maybe she needed to drink it away, she thought, like Mary. Sunny poured herself a small glass of wine and went to sit on the couch.

"Maybe we can lose them if we run," Andrew said. The second wolf hadn't strayed far from the wounded one. If Clemence and he could outrun it, the second probably wouldn't bother to go after them.

The bullet grazed the injured wolf on his bad leg, and he yelled in pain, hobbling away from Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2018, 03:29:03 AM
Clemence watched as the already hurt wolf moved away from Andrew. The other hesitated, then followed after its packmate. "Come on, let's go!" She said to Andrew and took off away from the wolves.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 03:47:53 AM
Andrew dropped down from the tree, and took off after her. Luckily, the wolves didn't seem interested in them, and soon they were a good distance away.

The injured wolf examined his bad shoulder, preparing to take the bullet out, but it didn't seem to have embedded in him. He let out a low whine, but kept going.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2018, 03:49:59 AM
Once they were far enough, Clemence came to a stop and looked at Andrew. "Your shoulder looks fucked," she said, raising an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 28, 2018, 04:05:47 AM
Mary came and sat beside her cradling the wine in her arms, without intention she softly sang the oceans song closing her eyes letting herself immerse in the song, into the ocean in her mind.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 04:20:49 AM
After a second, Sunny joined in singing along. Somehow, this song and notes came to her easily, even though she was basically tone deaf with every other piece of music.

Andrew nodded, wincing slightly. "Yeah, pretty sure I dislocated it trying not to fall out of the tree." He reached into one of his pockets and pulled out the little container of healing lotion. "Do you have one of these?" he asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2018, 04:22:11 AM
"No," Clemence eyed it warily. "Do you need to pop your shoulder back in place?" She asked.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 04:49:09 AM
"Yeah, I think that would help. And don't worry, this is healing stuff I got from Lady Snake." Andrew pocketed the container again, wincing at the movement of his shoulder.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 28, 2018, 04:50:22 AM
Mary wrapped her arm around her and swayed with the oceans song, grinning. “Hey hey do you want to see what I see?” She asked calmly, the wine made her calm for sure but her focus was still the same.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2018, 04:50:55 AM
Clemence nodded and looked at his shoulder, though she didn't know anything about putting a joint back in it's socket. "Want me to do it?" She asked, her gaze sliding back to Andrew's.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 05:36:55 AM
"Sure, yeah. What do you want to show me?" Sunny held her hand out to Mary, palm up.

Mary grinned instead placing her hand on her cheek. The image of her home, Saleran her real home, illuminated by beautiful colours and the sea creatures roamed around freely. She imagined the feeling of water on their skin, and the smell of the sea. “Come with me.”

Sunny closed her eyes, smiling softly. “We should see if Ferris wants to come,” she said softly. Granted, she was pretty sure the fish she was seeing in Mary’s memories were too colorful to be from around here - Beaumont was too far north to get tropical species like that - but there was still a city to be explored.

Andrew winced, but otherwise made no indication of pain. Actually, his shoulder felt a lot better. “Thanks. Did you get bitten or scratched anywhere?” he asked her.

Ferris had immersed himself in his text book, mostly ignoring the others and doing his best to filter out anything. He was blasting music through his headphones and reading about archaeological data analysis of lithics, all good distractions from the ocean.

"I don't think so," Clemence shook her head and checked over her arms and legs. "Nah, I'm good."

Post by: LittleK on February 28, 2018, 06:45:16 AM
Mary had let go for her a second, her brows furrowed. This feeling felt like she was a drinking a little too much, and then some. But she shook her head, she knew if she went home it would be the end of her. “We’re doing it again, we shouldn’t.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 06:53:57 AM
Sunny shook her head, hoping to get rid of the beautiful images in her mind. “Right. Yeah, you’re right,” she admitted, but she hated to say it.

“Okay, good. Good.” Andrew checked himself over briefly, and luckily, he hadn’t been hurt. He quickly explained how dangerous werewolf injuries were, both to them and to regular humans, and showed her the salve again. “So that’s why we have this. I don’t know if it works on regular humans or not, but for us, we really need it.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 28, 2018, 06:57:39 AM
“One thing I don’t understand is why we should be here? Like we should be protecting our... friends.” Mary replied standing, she finished her glass of wine and wiped her mouth. “We should find them.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2018, 07:02:39 AM
"And you said...Lady Snake gave it to you?" Clemence asked, her lips pursed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 07:13:10 AM
“I don’t think they’d recognize us, Mary. They’d probably just attach us.” Even as she said it, Sunny didn’t want to believe it was true, especially not for Chris - how could the sweet, caring guy she really liked possibly be a monster? - but she wasn’t willing to push it. Especially if it was true.

Andrew nodded. “Yeah.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2018, 07:18:06 AM
(He'd feel really really bad if he did)

"Cool. Cool. Do you talk to her a lot?" Clemence raised an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 28, 2018, 07:18:51 AM
“It beats from staying in here all night. Babe, we’re supposed to be protecting each other. Why aren’t we?” She asked, it was true although Chris had made her wary, and Cole had beeen distancing from her she was true to her word. They were her friends.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 07:33:02 AM
Sunny sighed and ran a hand through her hair. “We don’t even know where to start looking.”

“Not really. She finds me. Why, do you talk to her a lot?” Andrew asked, sliding his hands into his pockets.

(I think I need to introduce Lady Snake at some point in the rp...)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2018, 07:39:19 AM
"No," Clemence shook her head and got up, trying to adjust her back. She winced, realizing it'd probably be bruised up pretty bad.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 28, 2018, 07:48:56 AM
“The... woods?” Mary tapped her chin, as she danced around her high on life. Happy for once and not sulking.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 07:56:38 AM
“And what are we gonna do once we find them? And what if they do attack us?” Sunny continued. She didn’t want to ruin Mary’s mood, but they couldn’t just go skipping off into the woods to find their werewolf friends.

“You all right?” Andrew asked her, concerned. He was definitely going to be sore tomorrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2018, 07:58:01 AM
Clemence nodded. "Yeah, I'm alright. We should get out of here," she said and put her hands on her hips.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 28, 2018, 08:13:02 AM
“I’ll fend them off with my powers.” Mary made finger guns and created a little water bubble as she did so.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 08:34:06 AM
Sunny sighed, laying down. “I don’t think water is going to do much to fend them off, girl.”

“Yeah, definitely. Do you wanna get some food?” Andrew asked her, and started walking towards the roads.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 28, 2018, 08:41:26 AM
"We need to start training, like actually be able to kick ass." Mary replied throwing some punches.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2018, 08:43:05 AM
Ferris looked up at this point and raised an eyebrow. "For what?" He asked, taking an earbud out.

"Sure," Clemence nodded. She thought about texting Cole to see if he was up, so she pulled out her phone and did.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 08:52:08 AM
Sunny glanced over at Ferris and cracked a small smile. “Mary wants to go find Chris and Cole.”

“All right, cool. I think Pita Pit’s still open,” Andrew suggested, then he smiled and said, “Texting your boyfriend?”

Cole’s cell phone buzzed in Addie’s basement, unheard by its owner.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 28, 2018, 08:56:55 AM
Mary nodded with a grin. “It’s stupid I know but come on, let’s have an adventure!” She replied continuing to punch the air.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 09:08:52 AM
Sunny raised an eyebrow at her. Mary definitely had a different idea of an “adventure” than most people. “You know what? I need some air,” she said, and went to go sit outside on the balcony.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on February 28, 2018, 09:39:34 AM
Mary held her arm out to stop her but she felt defeated. How could she win over Sunny? She went over to her and knocked on the window. “Sorry, if I triggered you.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2018, 09:45:50 AM
Ferris winced, hating whenever anyone was upset. But it wasn't really his business.

"He's not my boyfriend," Clemence said, her face going warm. "Pita Pit sounds good," she agreed and pocketed her phone.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 28, 2018, 01:02:20 PM
Sunny turned back towards Mary and shrugged. "It's not you," she reassured her. "I'm just worried about him. That's all."

"Cool." Andrew smiled and began heading that way. After a few minutes, he pulled out his own phone and texted Ferris: Hey man, what are you up to?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2018, 01:14:56 PM
Ferris glanced down at his phone, thankful for another distraction. Not really, I'm at Mary's. What's up?

"Who are you texting?" Clemence asked curiously.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 01, 2018, 03:52:21 AM
“Yeah I can tell, you guys... you guys are good together. I’m weird way.” Mary replied sitting besides her and drew her knees to her chest.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 01, 2018, 04:13:23 AM
Sunny looked over at Mary, furrowing her brows. "You're not weird, Mary. Why do you think that?" she hesitated, and then asked, "Is it because of Cole?"

"My friend, Ferris," Andrew answered. "Have you met him before? Tall, always wearing a hat?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 01, 2018, 04:54:24 AM
"Oh, yeah, I've seen him," Clemence nodded. "Is he gonna come?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 01, 2018, 05:07:37 AM
(I hate typos xD)
“No no... I’m over him. I’m not going wait for him. Doesn’t mean I don’t care for him.” Mary leaned on her shoulder.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 01, 2018, 05:21:44 AM
Sunny let Mary lean on her and closed her eyes. "Cole's just a guy, Mary. And guys are stupid."

"I dunno, we'll see. Do you mind if he does?" Andrew asked. He'd already sent Ferris a text explaining where he and Clemence we're going to ear, and asked him if he wanted to tag along.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 01, 2018, 05:30:24 AM
“Exactly, I’ve just given up now what’s the point?” Mary whistled the oceans song again and tried to block out the images of their times together.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 01, 2018, 05:31:22 AM
"Nah, I'm good with that," Clemence shrugged.

Ferris read the text a few times, biting his lip. Should he go? He wanted to, but he was worried about the moon. Well, Andrew knew about his whole deal so it'd probably be fine, right? Definitely. He got up and packed his things, glancing toward where the girls were outside. He debated saying anything to them about leaving, but they might've tried to stop him and quite frankly he didn't really care. He quickly texted Andrew back saying he'd meet them there.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 01, 2018, 05:35:52 AM
"Who knows? He may come back around," Sunny said, and then began humming along with her.

Andrew read the newest text and smiled. "Cool, cause he says he'll meet us there."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 01, 2018, 05:44:09 AM
“Can I ask you something babe?” Mary swayed slightly wrapping her arm around her.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 01, 2018, 05:51:56 AM
Ferris went out and checked his maps to see how far he was, and luckily Pita Pit was in walking distance so he went that way.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 01, 2018, 05:54:37 AM
She nodded. "Yeah, what is it?"

They were at Pita Pit within no time, and when Andrew smiled and waved when he saw Ferris approaching.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 01, 2018, 05:58:38 AM
“Do you think of me as a friend?” Mary sat up once more and lit up a cigarette and leaned back.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 01, 2018, 06:02:10 AM
Ferris waved back and went inside. As soon as the door shut behind him, the ocean's call was drowned out some which was a relief. He sighed and went up to Andrew and Clemence.
"Hey, what's up," he said with a smile.
"Just enjoying the night. I'm Clemence, by the way," she said and held her hand out. Ferris shook it and introduced himself.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 01, 2018, 07:15:24 AM
Sunny raised an eyebrow at her. “Yeah, I do. I keep telling you that, and then you like to turn around and say you have no friends.”

Andrew placed his order at the counter, then turned back to Clemence and Ferris. “So, what’ve you been up to?”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 01, 2018, 07:19:53 AM
Mary looked up at her and wrapped her arms around her. "Ooh I'm sorry. Really. You're the best friend that I could ever ask for. You keep me sane." She puffed out a smoke and smiled. "I love you Sunny."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 01, 2018, 07:32:15 AM
"Struggling," Ferris said with a sigh and then placed his order after Andrew.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 01, 2018, 08:05:32 AM
“Love you too, Mary.” Sunny laughed and hugged her back. “How much wine have you had, again?”

“Oh yeah? What’s going on?” Andrew asked, stepping out of the way.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 01, 2018, 08:21:13 AM
"It's potent." Mary turned around to find Addie texting, and searched for Ferris. "Oh no... Where's our Fez?" She asked getting her phone and started to text him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 01, 2018, 08:23:11 AM
"School, life, the works," Ferris shrugged and stepped aside so Clemence could order. "Where do you want to sit?" he asked them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 01, 2018, 08:53:48 AM
Sunny turned around, her eyes going wide. How had they not noticed Ferris had left? She went back inside, but not before one last glance towards the ocean.

Andrew shrugged and went to go fill up his cup. “Doesn’t matter to me. You guys can pick.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 01, 2018, 08:56:19 AM
Ferris felt his phone buzz with a text message, but he ignored it for the time being and looked at Clemence. "How's that booth over there look?" He asked, gesturing to it. She looked to where he'd pointed and nodded, heading that way.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 01, 2018, 09:06:37 AM
Mary stood in front of Addie shaking her head. "You were supposed to tell us if someone left. What the hell?"
Addie looked up with a scoff, "Ferris can control himself don't worry." She replied pocketing up her phone. "Why don't we just try and track him down?"
"Ugh, no. You stay here. Me and Sunny will find him." Mary snatched the keys to Addie's car from the table and clicked her fingers to get Sunny's attention. "Come on let's go find him."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 01, 2018, 09:50:09 AM
"I'm sure he's fine," Sunny said, but decided to go with Mary anyway.

Andrew grabbed his pita once it was ready and sat down with Ferris and Clemence. He was definitely looking forward to eating, after everything that had happened with the wolves earlier.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 01, 2018, 09:53:53 AM
"What have you all been up to?" Ferris asked, tilting his head.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 01, 2018, 10:03:22 AM
Mary closed and locked the door behind her and twisted the keys in her fingers. “I’m saying if you can’t frolick in the sea maybe the river?” She asked pressing for the lift.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 01, 2018, 10:18:02 AM
"You think he went swimming in the river?" Sunny said, frowning. Why on earth would Ferris do that? They weren't freshwater mer. If freshwater mer even existed.

"Oh, not much. Clemence and I were hanging out earlier," Andrew said with a shrug. "What about you?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 01, 2018, 10:20:59 AM
"I was hanging out with Mary, Sunny, and Addie," Ferris told him and took a bite of his food. He then remembered he hadn't messaged them, so he quickly sent them a text saying he'd gone to eat with Andrew and Clemence, and hadn't wanted to bother them when he left.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 01, 2018, 10:27:57 AM
Mary took her phone from her back pocket. “Ah, Ferris is with Clemence and Andrew. No just random thoughts. But hey we should go to Ferris.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 01, 2018, 10:34:33 AM
"Are they getting food? Food sounds good." Sunny looked over at Mary, then out the window.

"Oh, okay. I guess they weren't doing much?" Andrew took a sip of his Coke.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 01, 2018, 10:46:33 AM
Mary texted Ferris of their location and unlocked Addie’s car. “Food sounds good. I think we’re going to make it tonight.”

"Are they getting food? Food sounds good." Sunny looked over at Mary, then out the window.

"Oh, okay. I guess they weren't doing much?" Andrew took a sip of his Coke.
"Nah, just having like..a girl talk or something," Ferris said and shrugged, then glanced at Clemence.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 03, 2018, 03:38:39 AM
Andrew winced and nodded in sympathy. "Yeah, that's not fun."

"You think so?" Sunny murmured, glancing up at the moon.

(Oh really they're gonna make it hahahahahahahaha lol)
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 03, 2018, 04:00:54 AM
Karen grumbled distractedly. "I hate this car."

An auburn wolf ran thru the forest, his paws padding quietly. Vin's nose caught the sent of others of his kind.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

(Okay, cool. We can go ahead and skip then.)

Cole would definitely have to go back to the hospital to get his arm and shoulder reset. He knew it as soon as he woke up; his left side was hurting even worse than when the bones had broken the first time. Cole curled up on his right side, squeezing his eyes shut and gritting his teeth so he wouldn't cry out.

Sunny, meanwhile, dozed peacefully on the beach. At some point, she'd gotten separated from her friends and had become entranced by the call. Her last clear memory was diving into the ocean, though visions of underwater lights and tall, spiraling buildings played over again in her still dreaming mind.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 04, 2018, 04:27:02 AM
Vin sat up groaning. "Shit. I hope I didn't ruin my hoody..." Then he noticed the other two boys near him. "Oh..."

Karen slammed her fist on the hood of her car in frustration. "I f***ing hate cars."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 04, 2018, 07:28:20 AM
Chris stared at whatever his eyes were focused on, though he didn't really know what it was. "Cole?" He groaned as he sat up, trying to figure out where they were. 

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 04, 2018, 12:36:27 PM
"I'm here," Cole managed to say, and he hoped he didn't sound like he was in pain. "What...where are we? And who are you?" he asked, looking over at Vin.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 04, 2018, 12:42:18 PM
Chris swiveled his head around to see who Cole was talking to, amd then winced when he saw the state of Cole's arm. "Dude, we should get you to a hospital."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 04, 2018, 01:33:19 PM
"I'm Vin. You're right that arm doesn't look good." He paused, looking around. "If I could call my mom, she could help, but I don't have know where we are." He groaned briefly. "I think I ate something nasty last night."

Karen leaned against the hood. She decided to try walking back to town for help.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 04, 2018, 02:24:02 PM
"I need clothes first." Cole squeezed his eyes shut again. He hoped the girls would get there soon, like they always did.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 04, 2018, 02:33:28 PM
"Yeah, cloths would be good." He stood shakily to look around. "I think I see a road." He leaned against a tree. "So who are you guys?"

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 04, 2018, 02:42:15 PM
"My phone's at Addie's, I don't know how we're supposed to ger a hold of the girls," Chris said, standing up shakily and sighing. The day after was usually the worse part.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 04, 2018, 03:00:00 PM
Cole managed to get himself into a sitting position, and he frowned, looking around at their surroundings. His phone was also at Addie's place, he realized.
"Well, I'm Cole," he said to Vin.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 04, 2018, 03:03:07 PM
"Nice to meet you Cole." Vin shook his hand. Then he doubled over and vomited out the contents of his stomach. "I think I caught a....yep definitely a cat. Gross."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 04, 2018, 11:09:50 PM
(Sorry friends, I was preoccupied all weekend!)
Addie managed to sleep at Mary’s couch all night, she seemed weird. Being sucked into their world was all overwhelming but she was grateful.

Mary was face first into the sand, she looked up and groaned. She went running after Sunny when she discovered she separted from them. The fact that she wasn’t captured last night was astounding. She stood, drawing her arms to her chest.  “Sunny?” She called out wiping the sand off her face.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 05, 2018, 02:39:00 AM
Chris wrinkled his nose. "Let's just figure out where we are," he said. 

Ferris squinted at the sun when he opened his eyes. He wouldn't be surprised if he got sunburnt.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 05, 2018, 03:11:57 AM
"Ok, so to orient ourselves...sun's rising there, so we have our directions established. Next, there's a road over there, so that may help..." Vin trailed off thinking.

Keren turned and noticed several people coming up from the beach.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 05, 2018, 04:59:36 AM
Cole winced and backed away from the regurgitated cat. "If we end up by that damned Kroger again..." he muttered to himself, though he suspected they weren't anywhere near the Kroger.

Sunny blinked as she woke up, brushing sand off her face. "Huh?" she mumbled in response to Mary.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 05, 2018, 05:02:42 AM
"Let's figure out how to get to Addie's house, or a payphone," Chris suggested. Having no clothes made it kind of hard, though.

“Damn it. We did it again.” Mary replied as she held her arms up for her. “And we were doing so good.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 05, 2018, 07:29:33 AM
Sunny took her hands and pulled herself up. "You know, I'm not surprised," she said, and then spotted Ferris nearby. "Hey, Ferris! You awake?"

Cole frowned, listening for a moment. "I think I hear the ocean," he said, and delicately stood up, trying not to move his injured arm.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 05, 2018, 08:45:03 AM
Mary covered her eyes and jogged towards Ferris. “Hey Ferris, did you take a swim too?” She asked kneeling to him.

Addie had took a taxi to her home, and tried to track down her car. She then headed down to the beach to track down the others.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

"I guess," Ferris mumbled and covered his face with his arm.

"We can head that way," Chris suggested.

"Sure." Vin agreed, as he started walking.

"Hey!" Karen called out. "Can any of you help me start my car?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 05, 2018, 12:47:50 PM
Cole cradled his bad arm the best he could as he walked. Today, covering himself wasn't as important as keeping his arm from moving too much. Within minutes, they we're at the beach, and there were three familiar forms not far from them.

Sunny turned towards the sound, and noticed the other girl there for the first time. However, she hadn't been able to hear what she said.
"What?" she yelled across the beach, then turned back to her friends.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 05, 2018, 01:41:11 PM
"Uh...guys, There's people down there."

"I said can any of you help me get my car to start!" Karen shouted.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 05, 2018, 01:57:14 PM
"Oh, it's Sunny!" Chris said excitedly, but then paused when he remembered the lack of clothes. That was unfortunate, not that the three mer hadn't seen them like that before. But it was different now, kind of.

Ferris turned to the girl asking for help, frowning. He didn't know much about cars, so he probably wouldn't have been able to help.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 05, 2018, 02:21:53 PM
“We actually found them,” Cole sighed in relief. Granted, he wasn’t sure they had clothes,  but it was better than being lost in the forests of Beaumont with no idea where to go. “Guys!” he shouted.

“I don’t know anything about cars, sorry!” Sunny yelled back, and then she turned when she heard a voice from further away.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 05, 2018, 02:39:44 PM
Chris glanced at Cole, then waved to Sunny when she looked, hoping she'd come over.

Ferris looked at where he heard the guy shout and squinted. "I think that's the guys," he said. Except it wasn't just Chris and Cole, there was a third person with them.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 05, 2018, 03:23:23 PM
Vin hung back, embarrassed. At least Cole and Chris seemed to know them.

Karen looked over to as what they were-Oh. And why are they naked?
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 05, 2018, 04:08:37 PM
“Yeah, I think so too,” Sunny murmured, heading towards them. What was the third guy doing there, she wondered? She took a few hesitant steps towards them and waved back to Chris.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 05, 2018, 04:13:39 PM
"Um, do you..could you get us clothes?" Chris yelled over to Sunny when she came closer.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 05, 2018, 05:06:32 PM
"Or a phone? I need to call my mom." Vin asked with an embarrassed tone.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 06, 2018, 01:54:59 AM
"Um, let me check!" Sunny yelled back. She wasn't sure where her bag was, but hopefully she'd remembered to pack extra shorts in it like she'd intended. Luckily, she found it not too far from where they were, and sure enough, she'd packed extra shorts - but only two pairs. Well, it would have to do. Sunny headed back towards the boys, holding the shorts above her head as if they were a flag.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 06, 2018, 02:23:39 AM
Chris grinned when he saw her coming back with them, but then frowned slightly when he realized there were only two pairs.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 06, 2018, 02:40:43 AM
"Um, if someone could lend me a phone, I can call my mom." Vin stood by the guys awkwardly.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 06, 2018, 03:07:39 AM
"Sorry, I wasn't expecting three of you." Sunny blushed as she approached, but kept her eyes firmly above the waist. "And, uh, I don't know if any of us have a phone. We kinda...went swimming," she added in response to Vincent. The last time she positively remembered having her phone, it had been in the back pocket of her shorts, and she didn't feel it there now.

Cole shrugged with his good arm, hesitant as to whether he should take the shorts. If none of them had a phone, that meant Vin would have to find a pay phone, and so he would probably need the clothes more. "That's fine, I'm sure there's a pay phone around here somewhere."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 06, 2018, 03:10:39 AM
"If you two take the shorts and go get our stuff from Addie's, I can wait," Chris offered, shrugging.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 06, 2018, 04:28:08 AM
Addie then jogged to the sound of people’s voices and carried the bag that was in the backseat. “Hey guys sorry I’m here!!” She panted, the sand was soft enough to sink.

Mary smirked as she stood behind Sunny, she looked at Cole for a moment then at Chris and the new people.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 06, 2018, 04:51:33 AM
Sunny turned towards Addie and smiled, relieved. "Thank goodness; I was thinking you couldn't find us."

Cole met Mary's eyes, but didn't say anything. He adjusted his good arm so the pain in his broken one was more manageable.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 06, 2018, 05:08:14 AM
Addie tripped and landed by Sunny’s feet and quickly got back up. “Yeah sorry. I- oh.” Her cheeks went red and instincts just made her turn away giving the bag to Sunny. “Um. I- tried to find you guys last night. And uh...”

“You didn’t do a very good job did you?” Mary snickered, she helped disperse the clothes from the bag and looked at Cole once more.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 06, 2018, 05:34:09 AM
Chris coughed a bit and glanced between them. "Can we uh, have the clothes?" He asked. He just wanted to go home and take a shower, then sleep for however long.

Ferris crossed his arms, looking at the sand.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 06, 2018, 05:46:00 AM
Mary took a step forwards and handed them the clothes, her eyes never blinking as she looked at all of them.  “Sorry. Rest up.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 06, 2018, 08:02:40 AM
Vin noticed dried blood on Cole and Chris. "Hey, I think you guys have some scrapes here."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 06, 2018, 10:54:32 AM
"Probably, yeah," Cole said as he delicately slid on the shorts. He just wanted to get to the hospital and have his arm reset.

Sunny frowned, looking closer at them. She noticed a wound on Chris' shoulder and reached out to touch it. "That doesn't look good," she said to him. "Do you remember how it happened?"
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 06, 2018, 10:56:51 AM
Chris glanced at where she was touching and then shook his head. "No, I didn't even really notice it," he admitted as he got dressed.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 06, 2018, 11:03:16 AM
Addie glanced at their scrapes and took out her phone. “If you’d like I could get my personal doctor to have a better look at it for you? No questions asked.” She started to find their contact details.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 06, 2018, 11:40:08 AM
"Can your doctor reset my arm?" Cole cut in quickly. "And maybe give me, like, twelve pounds of painkillers?"

Sunny furrowed her brows. "Well, it doesn't look any deeper than a surface cut," she said, and looked up into his eyes. She'd missed him, she realized. Even for a night.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 06, 2018, 11:47:40 AM
Addie nodded and already was on the phone with them. “I can take you guys right now to them.” She replied twirling her keys in her fingers.

“Are you sure you can handle them?” Mary asked touching shoulders with Addie, the talk of drugs made her ears perk up.
Addie nodded and smiled. “I suppose I could use some help.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 06, 2018, 01:13:43 PM
"My mom can help." Vin offered. "She has experience patching up stuff like this."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 06, 2018, 02:08:32 PM
Chris met her eyes and smiled gently. "Thanks for the diagnosis," he teased. "I think I'll be okay without a doctor, but yeah Cole definitely should get checked out."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 06, 2018, 02:18:16 PM
"Hey can I borrow that phone when you're done with your call?" His mom was going to be sooooo worried.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 06, 2018, 10:23:44 PM
Addie apprehensively held out her phone and smiled. “Take your time.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 07, 2018, 02:01:37 AM
"Thanks." He dialed. "Hey Mom. Yeah, it happened. I'm down by the beach. Also, I met a couple others. One of the has a broken arm. Ok thanks. Love you too."  He handed the phone back. "I'm Vincent Romero. Call me Vin."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 07, 2018, 03:33:30 AM
Cole frowned and readjusted his hold on his arm. "So, what are we doing? I can't let my arm sit like this all day."

Sunny leaned up and kissed Chris' cheek when the others weren't looking. She was glad he was safe, and back to his normal self.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 07, 2018, 03:48:14 AM
"Mom's bringing a medical kit." He answered. "She can probably clean up your cuts too.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 07, 2018, 03:54:39 AM
Chris grinned at Sunny, but then he glanced at his shoulder at the mention of the cuts. He really did wonder how he got it, but since it wasn't too serious he supposed it didn't matter much. He probably cut it on a branch or something.

"So no doctor?" Ferris raised an eyebrow and looked at Addie.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 07, 2018, 04:30:11 AM
Addie nodded to them. “Come on they’re coming to my house. Come on Vin.” She took back her phone and led them back to her car.

“Do you guys need a hand getting back to the car?” Mary asked tying her jumper around her waist.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 07, 2018, 04:48:22 AM
"Mom works at the ER. She also knows about...well what we are." Vin sat on a bench.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 07, 2018, 09:19:35 AM
Cole stopped, staring in shock at Vin. "How would she know about that?" he asked.

Sunny glanced between Vin and the rest of her friends, uneasy. Hopefully, he still didn't know what she, Ferris, and Mary were. That would be awkward to explain.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 07, 2018, 09:21:32 AM
Chris tensed up, watching Vin. Even if his mom knew about Vin, he didn't know how to feel about her knowing about him and Cole now. And who was to say they could trust this guy, anyway? They'd just met him.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 07, 2018, 09:36:03 AM
Addie smiled and nodded. “I suppose your mum could skip past the questions and also reports?” She tilted her head slightly looking at Chris’ nasty gash and Cole’s displaced arm.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 07, 2018, 11:33:15 AM
"She spent enough morning afters patching up my dad and his family." He shrugged. "She won't be reporting stuf like this."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 07, 2018, 02:40:00 PM
"You mean...your dad was a werewolf?" Cole said slowly. How was that possible? The curse didn't run in families, as far as he knew; he was pretty sure none of his relatives had it.

Sunny reached for Chris's hand and squeezed it lightly. She couldn't imagine what he was thinking right then. Her own mind was racing with questions.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 07, 2018, 02:49:07 PM
Chris laced his fingers with Sunny's and stepped closer to her. "I don't know about this," he whispered so just she could hear.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 07, 2018, 03:00:40 PM
"It manifests only in males, but can be passed thru females to their children." He explained "Or it can be passed on via bite, scratch, or blood."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 07, 2018, 04:17:06 PM
It can be passed on. Those words felt like a knife in Cole's gut. He would never forgive himself if he did that to someone else. Nobody deserved to live like this. He found himself unable to speak, and looked down at his feet.

Sunny bit her lip and nodded so he knew she'd heard him. She then stood up on the tips of her toes and murmured, "I don't know what to make of all this."

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 07, 2018, 04:26:09 PM
Chris squeezed Sunny's hand, though his shoulders were even more tense after hearing Vin's explanation. That didn't sit well with him, because he didn't know how he got the curse.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 08, 2018, 12:28:59 AM
"Mom's been researching for years." He continued. "Trying to find a way to reverse it." He looked up as a red pickup pulled into the parking lot. "She's here."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 08, 2018, 03:43:14 AM
Sunny looked up at the truck and instinctively stepped out in front of Chris. It was probably a silly picture - she was barely five feet tall, and she knew Chris towered over her both in height and in muscle mass - but she didn't like where this was going, at all. How were they supposed to know if they could trust his mother?

"Uh, okay. So now that we're all done socializing, who's taking me to the hospital to get my fucking arm fixed?" Cole snapped. He regretted the words as soon as he said them, but he just wanted to make sure the break didn't heal wrong. And that he'd have lots of painkillers this time, loopiness be damned.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 08, 2018, 03:46:32 AM
Chris glanced down at Sunny, unable to help the smile that flickered across his expression. He appreciated the gesture, but as soon as his eyes went back to the truck he got nervous enough. Apprently his muscles were so tensed they made the skin around his wound stretch, because he could feel blood trickling down his arm again.

Ferris pursed his lips and looked at Cole. "I can take you," he offered, since no one else was. He held up his keys and then nodded to the parking lot.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 08, 2018, 05:30:57 AM
Addie tried to speak up and then shook her head. “Take them to the hospital then if your mum knows better.”
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 08, 2018, 05:48:58 AM
Sunny glanced between the little group, and then she spotted Chris' wound. "You're bleeding," she said, eyes going wide, and she glanced around for something she could use to stop the blood flow.

"I don't care where we go, I just want a new cast," Cole muttered, looking down at the ground. The pain hadn't gone down any since he'd woken up, and he was starting to get fed up with it.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 08, 2018, 06:24:36 AM
"It's fine, Sunny," Chris assured her and glanced at his shoulders. He took a breath to calm down and shook his head.

"So...going? Not going?" Ferris jingled his keys again and raised an eyebrow.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 08, 2018, 06:39:39 AM
Mary nodded and sighed. “Take the boys to the hospital make sure they see Vin’s Mum.” She started to walk away.

“Are you sure? We can at least go to Urgent Care,” Sunny offered. “Or to Addie’s doctor.”

“Yeah, let’s go.” Cole nodded to Ferris and followed him out to his car.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 08, 2018, 09:13:45 AM
Name: Cato (just Cato)
Age: 19
Species: Mer
Power (if mermaid): Telekinesis
Appearance: he has short blonde hair and rather sharp features, as well as large blue eyes. He's average sized for a merman, and his tail is a light green-blue color.
History: He grew up in the mer colony of Hyppocema and has lived a relatively decent life. However, he lost his mother due to commercial fishing operations taking place along the coast and ever since he has been very wary of humans and anything to do with them - though he is still curious.
Anything else?: hmmmmmmmmno
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 08, 2018, 10:01:31 AM
Cool cool!

So guys, I’ve been posting worldbuilding stuff in the Roleplay Discussions thread, and I would appreciate it if y’all would take a look at them. I included information about both Saleran and Hyppocema, as well as more detailed information as to how the werewolf curse actually works. You’ll know them when you see them, because they’re the really big text chunks (though one might be a few pages back.) Once you’ve read them and are ready to move on to the next scene, please write the phrase “candied watermelons” in your post.

And with that, I’ll post my new character!

Name: Alessandro (Alec) di Quira
Age: 20
Species: Mer
Power (if mer): He has the ability to either enhance or deplete the powers of other mer around him.
Appearance: Alec has long black hair (he rocks a good man bun) and dark brown eyes, with tan, olive toned skin. In human form, he is tall, around 6’. His tail is a rusty maroon color, and he has dark spots on his fluke.
History: Alec was born to a poor family in Saleran, and enlisted in the Emperor’s army at age 17. His family is just barely surviving on the income he makes as a solider, and for the past three years, everything has been fine. The Emperor is currently debating on whether or not to acquire more territory, and so he sent out squads to go investigate the other colonies. Alec was assigned to go to Hyppocema, and Beaumont is just a stop on the way.
Anything else?: Not right now.

Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 09, 2018, 10:20:48 AM
(Okay, great! Let’s skip ahead then!)

Cole was back from the hospital now, a new cast on his bad arm and a fresh dose of painkillers in his system. He managed to find his phone in the pile of clothes he’d left for rom the night before, and sent Clemence a text message: Hey, sorry for not responding; I didn’t have my phone on me last night. It wasn’t technically a lie. So that made it okay, right?

Sunny stared out at the ocean from her spot on the beach. What had she and the others found last night? And why couldn’t she remember any of it? She frowned, wiggling her toes in the sand, and tried to tell herself that no, going back out there probably wasn’t the best idea.

Meanwhile, not too far away, Alec stared down at the two appendages where his tail normally was. His squadron leader had decided that swimming directly near Hyppocema would be a bad idea, and that it would be easier and stealthier to...go from above, in his words. That meant Alec and his partner had to find a human with a boat. The tides, however, had separated them, and now he was alone on the surface.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: LittleK on March 09, 2018, 11:01:02 AM
Mary kept thinking to herself why her parents didn’t drag her back to Salernan? Was it because she didn’t get far last night? It couldn’t be possible, she shook her head and sighed. She was walking and smoking on the promenade trying to not think about her parents.

Addie swept the pieces of glass from her basement, and wiped her forehead. She had given staff the day off, they didn’t need to know what was going on. She wrapped tarp over the windows that were smashed and made a note to call repairers.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 09, 2018, 11:25:48 AM
No worries, you busy? Clemence sent back. After last night, she just wanted to relax and Cole always proved to be a pretty good distraction from real life.

Chris had gone home and napped, which took up a fair part of the afternoon. When he woke up he checked the time on his phone and sighed, then went and took a quick shower before he sat at his desk and started working on the homework he needed to get done. Being an engineer and a werewolf really didn't do much for his grades.

Cato swam along the current, heading closer and closer to the shore. He wasn't really sure why he'd been asked to scout, but he wouldn't question it. Apparently there'd been sightings of other mer in the area, which was making everyone nervous. Where had they come from? He supposed it was his job to go find out, which wasn't something he was terribly happy about. He preferred to stay far from the humans, but he also wasn't one to argue.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on March 09, 2018, 11:42:08 AM
Vin closed his eyes in concentration, pencil poised. He needed this after last night. An image flashed thru his mind, of trees blurring by, then another, the sense of first touching noses in greeting. The pencil touched paper.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 09, 2018, 12:09:26 PM
(The werewolves never remember what happened during the full moon. Never.)

No, I’m just chilling at home. Wanna come over? Cole texted back. He leaned his head back against the pillow and closed his eyes. Clemence would be a nice relief from the stress of last night.

After a while, Sunny decided to go back in the water. She folded her jeans, bra, and underwear on her towel, diving in in only her baggy t-shirt. Within seconds of touching water, her legs fused into her bright yellow tail, and she headed further out into the deep.

Alec walked up the beach, looking around for a landmark he could recognize. Humans chattered all around him - what language were they speaking, again? This continent was so full of them, he could barely keep track of them all. Then again, Alec knew some Spanish, and this sounded nothing like it. So, English, he figured. After a few moments of walking, he spotted a familiar face. Alec never met her before, but he’d seen her face on flyers and papers all across Saleran.
“Mary!” he yelled, hoping to get her attention.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 09, 2018, 12:13:33 PM
Clemence smiled and got up, grabbing her keys. Sure, I'm on my way, she texted him as she got into her car.

Cato paused to observe some fish as they swam by him getting slightly distracted. He wandered off course but then remembered he was supposed to be headingtoward the shore and he continued on his way for Beaumont's beach.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 09, 2018, 12:43:36 PM
Cole smiled at that last message, and sighed. He thought about taking another pill. Not that he really needed it, it just sounded good. But he knew doing that was a slippery slope.

As Sunny reached the end of the surf, she noticed a flash of green in the water. She furrowed her brows and peered out, trying to track the movement.

(It's more the Idea of these things happening then memories.)

Setting the scetch aside, Vincent took a moment to smell the eggs his mom was cooking. The memory of what he had last eaten made him wince.
"Something wrong Vinny?"
"I ate a cat last night. It made me sick this morning."
"Then how about some tea"
"Thanks."

Karen walked into a caffe. Last night had been exhausting.
"Double expresso mocha please."
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 09, 2018, 01:00:26 PM
Clemence made it to Cole's house pretty fast, and walked up to knock on his door.

Cato saw the yellow tail and started back peddling, trying to avoid the other mer.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on March 09, 2018, 01:41:13 PM
“It’s open,” he called out from inside. Against his better judgement, Cole had decided to take another dose, and now he felt light and relaxed. Probably too relaxed. But that was a problem for later. He closed his eyes again, enjoying the sensation.

Sunny jumped back, startled, and found herself face to face with another mer. A boy. Here rown deepened, and she tilted her head to one side, trying to figure out if she knew him; he didn’t look familiar to her in the slightest.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 09, 2018, 01:59:57 PM
Clemence opened the door and walked inside, then kicked her shoes off and looked around, but her eyes eventually landed on him. She squinted a bit and then tilted her head. "Hey, what's up?" she asked, smiling slightly.

Cato stared at the girl in front of him in shock, but then his expression shifted to wariness. This must have been one of the strangers he was looking for, because he definitely had never seen her at Hyppocema. He said something, but it was in his native language - one not spoken on the surface.
Title: Re: Unlikely Allies

“Not much.” Cole grinned, and opened his eyes to look over at her. He patted the space next to him with his good hand. “Here, come sit with me.”

“What?” Sunny asked. She was surprised she could talk underwater, but she knew that wasn’t the most important thing right now. The words he’d said didn’t sound like any language she could think of - even though Sunny wasn’t a linguist and realized there were dozens, if not hundreds, of human languages she didn’t know of - but she still tried to communicate. “Do you speak English? Like at all?”

Clemence went over and sat down beside him, letting their thighs touch. She glanced him over and looked at his arm. "Rough night?" she asked, bringing her eyes back up to his.

"Oh, right," Cato rolled his eyes, more at himself. "Uh, yes. Do you not know another language?" he asked, his words lilted by an accent. Even the other mer societies had their own languages, and none of them were English.

Mary’s brows met together, she stepped onto her cigarette and decided to check out who was calling her name. A guy stood in front of her and judged him up and down, from his tone of skin he didn’t look like the others in Beaumont she kept her arms folded. “Who wants to know handsome?” She asked sweetly, with her sickly smile.

Addie finally swept up all the glass and gathered the glass into newspaper and put it in the bin. She sighed as she quickly texted Andrew, Are you faring well since last night?

(Also Blueboo How popular is Mary’s family xD)

(Uh...up to you XD)

Cole nodded. "Yeah. Had to get my arm reset. It hurt like a bitch."
Why did he say that? He hadn't planned on telling Clemence about re-breaking his arm. Then again, he couldn't bring himself to care very much right then.

"Uh...I took Spanish in high school. And my parents tried to teach me Korean when I was a kid, but it didn't stick." Sunny furrowed her brows again. "What were you speaking just now?"

"Alec. I'm from Quira, in Saleran." He stepped closer to Mary, glancing down at the cigarette she'd stepped on. "You're a long way from home, aren't you?"

Andrew groaned when he heard his phone buzz, and rolled over to reach it. After last night, he'd decided to sleep in, especially since he didn't have classes until later that afternoon. He sent Addie a quick reply: Yeah, I'm fine. Didn't do much last night. You?

Mary chuckled at their proximity, she bit her lip and looked up to him, still smiling. “I know Quira, so very close to where I live. But thank you for stating the obvious, Alec.” She has spoken in the dialect or Quira and held out her hand. “Always a pleasure to see a fan.” She said in English.
(Can she like be ish important then? Since she’s on posters? :p)

"What happened?" Clemence frowned, her eyebrows knitting with concern as she looked at his arm again.

"Those are all land languages," Cato said, frowning. "Where are you from?" He tilted his head, not answering her question.

Vin finished breakfast, and went for a walk.

(Totally! Maybe she's from a noble family?)

"I had a...rough night with my buddies." Cole shrugged with his good arm. "And I may or may not have taken a lot of painkillers just now."

"Well, I'm originally from Ohio. But I go to college here. Where are you from?" Sunny asked. Land languages. He'd called them land languages. This must be another born mer, she realized.

Alec glanced down at her hand, and switched back to the Quiran dialect. With Saleran being such a huge colony, there was quite a few; Quiran Saleric tended to be a mixture of Standard Saleric with so
