“Why don’t you come see? It’s a circus at my place.” Mary called out in a flirty manner, with a shrug and a wink.

"Cool," Ferris grinned and pulled his keys from his pocket to go to his car.

Chris rolled his eyes but laughed and held the aux cord out to her after he started the car.

Clemence grinned and wrapped her arms around his waist.

Cato winced at that. "I'd like to avoid her place at all costs," he said, though he figured that wasn't directed to him.

Andrew grinned back and followed him, happy together away from the beach. Too much weirdness had happened tonight.

Sunny plugged the cord in to her phone, and started playing music from an indie group. They had a soft, calm sound that she liked on especially crazy days.

"Are you going home for Thanksgiving?" Cole asked after a bit of silence.

Alec held his hands up and shrugged. "I'm not really in the mood for a circus tonight, thanks," he said.

"Well, can I at least expect you guys to be here tomorrow? Same time to you know? Chuck her into the water?" Mary asked twirling her keys on her fingers.

Ferris unlocked his car and got in, tapping his hands along to the beat of the song playing.

Chris rolled the windows down and relaxed back. The music was soothing and kind of made him forget, it was just like he was spending a normal night with his girlfriend doing normal things.

"I'm not sure yet, why?" Clemence asked.

"Sure," Cato shrugged.

Andrew closed his eyes and leaned his head back against the head rest.

Sunny dangled her arm out the window, just enjoying spending time with her boyfriend.

"Just wondering. I know y'all get a break for Thanksgiving," Cole said with a shrug.

Alec nodded. "Sure, yeah. The sooner, the better."

Ferris played the music quietly and drove back to his house. He got out and headed to his room, then sat at his desk to roll the joint.

Chris looked over at her every so often, and felt his chest tighten with happiness. He could make it through whatever else was hurdled at them, so long as he still had her. No way he'd give that up again.

"Yeah," Clemence nodded. "I dunno, I might. I haven't seen my family in a while."

Andrew sat next to Ferris, smiling softly. "When were you wanting to go to Sonic?" he asked.

Sunny looked over at him, and couldn't help but smile. She was glad he wasn't afraid of her, or of having her touch him. Or, at least, he wasn't as far as she knew.

"I think you should. They'd be happy to see you again," Cole said.

(Wanna skip soon?)

"Oh, whenever. We could go after this, I guess," Ferris shrugged and licked the paper to seal it, then took the first hit before holding it out to Andrew.

Chris smiled back and turned to face the road again.

"Yeah," Clemence said softly, looking down at her feet.

(Sii. Also. I have an idea heheheh)

(Ooooo tell me)

“Sounds good.” Andrew took a hit, closing his eye again as he exhaled.

Sunny closed her eyes and sighed happily, then reached over to briefly squeeze one of his hands.

Cole looked over her for a moment, and leaned in to kiss her cheek.

(Oof I can’t wait 😍😍)

Mary closed her door gently hoping that she wouldn’t wake her sister, however she was already awake. Andri was flipping through pages in a magazine, herself sprawled on the couch. “Took you long to get some milk.”
“Funnily enough, everyone was out.” Mary muttered going to the kitchen, she felt her hands go clammy. She never lied to her sister, she knew because she couldn’t she’d always find out the truth. “Hey, fancy going for a swim tomorrow? To stretch ones tail?”
Andri watched her, her lips pursed. “Alright.”
Mary’s heart pumped hard as she poured herself a glass of juice. “Great, I’m off to bed.” She said without making any eye contact.

Alec dressed and hastily tied his hair up as he headed to the beach. Hopefully, Mary would arrive soon with Andri, and they could finally get rid of her. Alec was definitely ready for her to be gone.

Sunny surveyed the list of majors again, frowning. None of them appealed to her. But she had to pick one, didn't she? The nursing program was apparently out of her reach, but even if it wasn't, it seemed she was staying a mer. The ocean witches wouldn't turn her back. Sunny wasn't sure how to react to that.

Mary strolled beside her sister, cigarette in one hand and looking towards the ocean. She took deep breaths several times and sighed as she did so.
Andri in the meantime had her hand in her pockets, kicking shells and looked ahead. “Something on your mind?” She asked nonchalantly, she thought of what kind of ice cream she should try today.

Cato headed down to the beach to meet Alec and Mary. He was pretty excited to watch Andri get flung into the ocean. For one, she was Salernan. And second, she freaked him out. It was a win-win.

"See anything worth looking into?" Chris asked from his seat. He looked up from the work he was doing to check on her.
