(Hell ya)

Chris shifted his bag on his shoulder as they all walked up to the Airbnb they'd rented out for the trip. He grinned and turned toward Sunny, putting his arm around her shoulders. "This is gonna be great!"

Clemence grabbed her bag out of the car and looked at the house, scrutinizing a bit. "Seems good to me," she said with a shrug.

Ferris was already applying sunscreen in preparation. Not that he wasn't used to the sun already, but he was more aware of his susceptibility to it when he was on "vacation".

Sunny grinned back and kissed his cheek. "I know, I'm so excited! What do you want to do first?"

Cole nodded, running his hand through his hair. "It's just nice to get out of Beaumont for a while."

Andrew was unpacking their things from the car, busying himself from the racing thoughts in his mind.

"First, pick a room. Then, take a shower cuz traveling sucks. But do you want to do anything after?" He asked.

Clemence nodded in agreement with Cole and watched as another car pulled up, the Airbnb host. She went over to meet him and get the key to go inside.

"Need help?" Ferris went over and started getting some of the stuff from the car.

"Oh, I dunno yet - wait, does this place have a tub, or just a shower?" Sunny wondered with a frown. Granted, she could shower by sitting on the floor underneath the water stream, but it was far less convenient than having a bathtub.

Cole hung back by the car and stared down at his feet, still in thought.

"Sure, thanks." Andrew smiled and headed upstairs to choose a room.

"Uh, I dunno," Chris said with a frown. "Let's go see," he suggested as he went inside.

"Cole?" Clemence turned toward him and tilted her head. "You coming in or should we pitch a tent for you?"

Ferris grinned and followed Andrew inside.

Sunny walked with him and set her bag down in one of the rooms as they went.

"Hmm? Oh, yeah." Cole followed her inside. "You remember a few weeks ago, when they announced the solar eclipse coming up?" he asked.

"Where to start..." Andrew murmured as they went.

"Bathroom, bathroom," Chris mumbled to himself as he lookrd through the rooms. "Aha! Bathtub included!' He said with a grin, gesturing to the bathroom.

"Yeah," Clemence nodded. "What about it?" She asked, setting her purse down in the kitchen before turning to him.

"How many rooms are in this place?" Ferris wondered aloud.

"Yes!" Sunny cheered. "Dibs on the tub!"

Cole frowned and turned to look at the wall. "I'm....I'm afraid of what could happen. To Chris and me, to you, to the others..."

"Uh...I think the site said four? Or three, I can't remember," Andrew said with a shrug.

Chris laughed and leaned over to kiss her temple. "I'm gonna go put my stuff away," he said. He turned back to the room she'd dropped her stuff off at.

Clemence's brow furrowed and she stepped closer, turning his face gently toward her. "Don't worry about that, Cole. If something happens, Andrew and I...we can do something about it. I mean, I'm obviously not whatever I was before but we're both still strong. It'll be okay."

"Oh, cool," Ferris nodded and passed by Chris. They nodded to each other as Ferris went on to find a room.
(So should it be 3 or 4? ;) )

(Hello friend I am back from the dead)

"All right. You can shower first if you want, I don't care," Sunny said to him, then poked her head out of the bathroom as Ferris was passing by. "Dude, they have a bathtub here! You know how cool this is? I've been sitting on the floor of the dorm showers for months!"

"I hope so," Cole murmured, and pressed a kiss to her forehead. He had a feeling that things were either going to go very well on this trip, or horrifically awful.

Luckily for Andrew, there were four bedrooms in the house, so he waited until the others had already picked theirs before he unpacked his stuff.

(Hello my darling ive missed you!!!!)

Ferris laughed a bit at Sunny's excitement, nodding enthusiastically. "That's awesome!" He said.

"'Kay, I'm gonna shower," Chris said before slipping into the bathroom. He turned the water on and waited for it to heat up, staying by the counter and looking into the mirror. He sighed, glad it fogged up pretty quickly so he turned away.

"Come on, let's go rest up," she said and took his hands, gently tugging him to one of the rooms.

(I've missed you toooooooo life is just crazy rn)

"Right?" Sunny had stepped aside when Chris went to shower, and she decided to go back to the room and lay down for a minute.

Cole smiled lightly and nodded as he followed her. "The drive down here wasn't too bad, actually."

Andrew eventually made his way to the living room, figuring it would be fun explore a little.

(I feel that broski)

Chris didn't take too long to shower, and he emerged in his shorts while he dried his off. "Hey," he smiled when he saw Sunny.

"No, it was pretty good," Clemence agreed as she started unpacking her things.

Ferris got his room situated how he wanted, then went to explore around the house a bit.
