"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.

"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."

"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.

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."

"You're cool driving now? Not feeling woozy still?" Mary asked opening the door on her side.

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.

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.

(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.

(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.

"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.

“So what does that make you now then? Merwolf?” Mary pondered brushing away specks of sand from her cheek.

"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.

Mary nodded and unclipped herself. “All the more reason to break the curse right?” She looked towards Cole, wanting to touch his hand.

[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.

(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.
