Chris stared at Cole, shocked by that. "Why do you think you've been getting those?" He asked, confused. It sounded like a pretty werewolf-y dream, but he hadn't had anything like that. To be fair, though, he never remembered his dreams.

Ferris frowned as he thought about it. "Well, florida's south," he pointed out.

Clemence watched Cole worriedly, and reached over to gently touch his arm.

(Okay, no worries! Have a good day!!)

Cole shrugged, and reached over with his other hand to touch Clemence's. "I dunno, but it's been annoying and freaky."

"Florida is south," Andrew agreed. He tapped his fingers against his knee as he thought. "But it's also a big state."

"Yeah, but...well, we're mer so, shouldn't we stick by the ocean?" Ferris suggested.

"No kidding, dude," Chris said sympathetically.

"That's still, like, three-fourths of the state's border," Andrew said.

Cole nodded, and looked over at Clemence for a moment.

Sunny slowly reached over for Chris' hand, lacing their fingers together. "So, we're going to Florida?"

"Yeah, but I mean, it's somewhere to start," Ferris sighed. "Maybe it'll be like x marks the spot."

Clemence met his eyes and smiled gently at him. She wound her fingers with his and squeezed them.

"Yeah. It can be a vacation! A witch-hunt, probably not super fun, vacation," Chris said.

"Maybe. Maybe it'll be like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," Andrew mused, which then made him start thinking of how long it had been since he'd seen the Indiana Jones movies.

Cole squeezed her hand back. He wondered if the dreams would get worse if they went down there, and instantly wished he could unthink something.

Sunny smiled softly. "Spring break's coming up in a few months. We can start getting ready to go right now."

Ferris laughed at that. "You know that dude is like the worst example of an archaeologist like, ever, right?" He said lightheartedly.

"You're overthinking," she said softly to him and kissed his knuckles.

"Oh, that's a great idea! I was literally just thinking we'd ditch school," he laughed.

"Hey, he may be a bad archaeologist, but he's a great adventurer." Andrew shrugged and laughed lightly.

"I always do," he murmured, squeezing her hand.

Sunny laughed and ran her thumb over his knuckles. "I do like that idea, too, but I'd like to get a job and save some money first."

"True," Ferris laughed.

Clemence used her free hand to rub the crease from between his brows. "I know, darlin'."

"Some day," Chris said, sighing as he leaned his head on her shoulder.

Sunny leaned her head on top of his, and smiled lightly. "So, we're going to Florida for spring break?"

"Looks that way," Andrew said, and stretched to pop his back.

"Woohoo!" Clemence whooped, tossing her hands up as she did and laughed.

"It could actually turn out to be kind of fun," Chris agreed.

"Yeah, but don't forget why we're going. To get answers." Ferris shifted his weight and looked around at them all.

Cole smiled and wrapped one of his arms around Clemence's waist to pull her into him.

"And in the meantime, we need to try to figure out as much about where we need to go as possible," Andrew added.

Sunny nodded and squeezed Chris' hand. "Have you been having dreams like that?" she asked.

Clemence leaned her head on his shoulder and sighed softly. "I know it's for like, serious stuff, but it'll be fun," she said and then kissed his cheek.

Ferris nodded in agreement. "I can do some digging tonight, see if I can find anything."

Chris shook his head. "No, not that I can remember at least."

"Yeah, it will. We should go on one of those swamp tours, if we end up by the Everglades," Cole said as he thought.

"Where are you gonna go digging?" Andrew asked as he furrowed his brows again.

Sunny hummed, thinking, and pressed a light kiss to his forehead.

"Oh, yes! I want to see some gators!" Clemence sat up a bit and beamed.

"In some books," Ferris laughed.

Chris shrugged and wrapped his arms around her.
