"Make our lives hell?" Clemence guessed.

Ferris sighed and looked over to where they'd gone. "Maybe we should go home and try to come up with a new idea."

"And leave Chris here?" Sunny frowned. It didn't sit well with her, but the thought that it might be the only choice they had didn't sound good, either.

"I don't think they'll hurt him for the time being. We just need to get a solid plan together before we can really do anything," Ferris said, though he understood Sunny's worry. It didn't sit very well with him either.

"Yeah, going in blind and starting a fight probably isn't going to work very well," Clemence agreed l, crossing her arms.

"Besides, we don't know what exactly we're up against. Who knows what they're capable of?" Andrew said.

Sunny's frown deepened, but she nodded reluctantly. "Yeah...yeah, you guys are right. But I don't like it."

"We'll get him back," Ferris assured her with a small smile before he turned to start heading back to their cars.

(Why dude? You're about to go on an adventure even though i'm gonna miss you like crazy but that's besides the point!)

She nodded once and turned to follow them back.

(Aiiiight)

Clemence stared at her phone, watching the minutes tick by. It'd be sunset soon, and she honestly had no idea what was going on.

Cole found an abandoned warehouse lot for the night, and he'd made sure the others knew where he would be before he headed out. The familiar aches and pains spread through his body as sunset approached.

Sunny ran a hand through her hair, looking out at the sky from her spot in one of the dorm's study lounges. Maybe she would go swimming tonight, she thought, but then shook her head. No, she couldn't think like that. There were more important things to worry about.

Clemence sighed and rolled out of her bed, pulling her phone out to text Andrew. She opened up the message, but then stopped and shook her head, putting her phone back into her pocket. She grabbed a coat and her keys, then headed outside.

Ferris hit call on Sunny's number and then put it on speaker as he continued scrolling through tumblr to take his mind off everything.

Cole didn't need to text the group for them to know where he was, Andrew thought. He was capable of finding the werewolf perfectly fine on his own. That was probably one of the better things that had come out of this new arrangement, but the past few days, he'd had trouble tracking down Chris again. Andrew closed his eyes, focusing on Chris. He had to be able to use his stupid curse powers for something other than killing.

Cole removed most of his clothing and folded it, then locked it in his car. He sat down by the tree cover and held his head in his hands, waiting.

"Hey," Sunny said into the phone as she leaned back in her chair. "How are you?"

Clemence drove toward the warehouse, hoping she'd get there in time. Maybe she wasn't obligated to, but she felt like she needed to be there for Cole. She didn't remember anything about their relationship, but she still cared about him. Just...maybe not the way he cared for her. But it didn't matter. She breathed out in relief when she saw the warehouse and pulled in, finding Cole's car easily and parked next to it.

"I'm alright. How are you doing?" Ferris asked, glancing out his window.
