"I don't think anything'll happen to me," Cole said, "but who really knows. I didn't think I'd grow gills, either."

Chris nodded and turned to look out toward the water.

(Do we need clemence and andrew?)

(I feel like we should bring them in somehow, but I don't know how .-. )

Soon the sun fell beneath the horizon, and the beach was bathed in moonlight.
"So, what exactly happened?" Cole asked Sunny.

She shrugged, looking down at her toes. The ocean call was still strong, but Sunny could resist it - whether because its power had weakened enough for her to, or if she was prepared for it, though, she wasn't sure - for now. "Um. I just felt like I needed to go in the water. And I couldn't concentrate on anything else."

(I want them to unknowingly interact with the wolves. Hmhmhmhmmmm we might needa wait for a hot minute but i have an idea.)

"How do you feel now?" Chris asked her, frowning with a bit of concern.

Ferris studied Sunny for a second, but then his attention was drawn to the water. He watched as the moonlight started shining on it, and his eyes went a bit wider.

(Yeah. It would be fun to have them interact with each other and not know c:< Oooooh tell me your idea!)

"Fine. I hear it, but I'm okay." Sunny sneaked a glance up at Chris, and then over at Ferris, careful to keep her eyes away from the water. "Ferris? You okay?"

Cole looked up at the moon, and out onto the water, waiting to see if he felt something. So far, though, all he felt was relief that the moon was in its waning phase, getting weaker. No weird hypnosis yet. But at least if Sunny, Ferris, or Mary lost it, he would be able to go after them.

(It's not very exciting hahaha I was just gonna have Clemence go into Cole's shop  (cuz he works at a machine shop right?))

Chris nodded to Sunny, then looked over at Ferris and nudged his shoulder.
"What?" Ferris turned toward them and then blinked a few times. Now that his eyes weren't on the water, his head felt a little clearer. "Oh," he said, looking up at Sunny. "Okay. Yeah, I think I know what you're talking about."

(Yep! I like that :) )

"It was even worse last night," Sunny said to him, nodding sympathetically.

"What's the worst thing that's happen if you didn't fight it?" Cole asked them, glancing between Ferris and Sunny.

Ferris shrugged and pushed his hair back a bit. "I dunno, it just...it feels like I should go in the water, but also like that's not my idea. It's not very nice to experience."

Chris bit the inside of his cheek, nodding some.

Cole leaned back on his hands, looking up at the sky. "Whose idea is it, then?" he wondered aloud. Without waiting for an answer, he went back up to his car and grabbed a can of beer, then descended down the beach again.

Sunny frowned and turned to Ferris. "I kind of feel like my mom is calling me, you know? Like, someone wants to talk to me. I don't know. What's it feel like for you?"

"Yeah...I guess it's kind of like that," Ferris said thoughtfully, training his eyes on the sand.

"What would happen if you went in?" Cole asked as he cracked his beer can open.

(Crack open a cold one with the boys)

"I don't really want to find out," Ferris said, a shiver going down his spine.

"Yeah, but what if something amazing happens?' Chris asked, running his fingers back through his hair.

(Cole will crack a cold one open regardless of whether or not there are any bois)

Sunny closed her eyes and tilted her head down. "Well, I'm not going alone," she said quietly.

(Valid.)

"Cole and I can go in with, to make sure nothing happens," Chris offered and looked pointedly at Cole.

Ferris worried his lip as he thought it through. "I..maybe?'

Cole glanced down at the beer in his hand, and shrugged. "Y'all can think it over for a bit. No rush."

Sunny straightened up, an idea forming. "Maybe we don't have to go in just yet."
