“Cole never told me how you became his girlfriend. I’d love to hear this one.” Mary leaned forwards slightly, with a smile.

Sunny leaned into him more and wrapped one of her arms around the front of his waist.
"I'm really happy we met," she said softly. "Maybe not, you know, under the circumstances that we did, but I'm glad I met you anyway."

"I would hope so." Alec swallowed against the rising lump in his throat, and finally looked up. Now that he wasn't freaking out as much about Luis and was instead pondering how he might someday be executed, and how much more he was worth to his family dead rather than alive, he was getting pretty hungry. "What were you saying earlier, about food?"

"Oh, really? Why's that?" Andrew asked, genuinely curious.

"Well, she somehow managed to break her car," Cole began, a teasing smile on his face.

(Also, guys, I'm in the middle of a super long color service. It's fun stuff, but I probably won't be replying as frequently.)

"Me too," Chris dipped his head down and kissed her forehead. "I'm really, really happy we met."

"Let's go get some!" Cato said excitedly.

"You know like, in Avatar the Last Airbender the ocean and moon spirit are like, connected. It's kind of like that in real life. I mean, I dunno if there are spirits or anything, but the ocean and moon are somehow connected. So if you go outside there's like a song you hear but it's kind of the ocean calling us and it's like...I dunno, kind of scary," Ferris explained.

"I did not break my car! It was making some weird noises, and our good man here fixed it up," Clemence laughed as she explained.

She smiled and leaned up to kiss his lips, softly and gently.

"All right, where do you want to go?" Alec asked, pushing himself onto his feet.

The moon and the ocean were connected. Just like the wolves and the moon, and he and Clemence and the moon. "Huh," Andrew said slowly. "What do you mean the ocean calls you?"

"It was on the last thread of life, practically begging me to put it out of its misery. A mercy killing," Cole continued, his smile widening and his arm going to wrap around Clemence's waist.

Chris kissed her back, bringing his hand up into her hair.

"I don't know anywhere here. Where should we go?" Cato asked.

"It tells us to come in," Ferris closed his eyes. "It's really kind of pushy, actually. Very annoying."

Clemence rolled her eyes but then laughed. "But you saved it instead, a real knight in grimy oil," she said and leaned up to kiss his cheek.

Sunny slid her hands up and into his hair, as well, weaving her fingers through his locks.

"Uh, there's a place nearby called Jimmy John's. I think they have sandwiches. Have you ever had a sandwich?" Alec asked Cato, trying to remember how to get to the restaurant from here.

Andrew nodded. "Huh. That's...weird."

Chris put his arms around her waist and pulled her onto his lap, never breaking the kiss.

"No," Cato said. Whatever a sandwich was, it sounded good and he wanted it.

"Everything about my life is weird, dude," Ferris said with a wry smile.

Sunny straddled his hips and ran her fingers through his hair, one hand slipping down his chest and stomach.

"Me neither. We should try them," Alec decided, and headed for Jimmy John's.

"Mine too." Andrew chuckled. "I know you think I have a normal life. I don't. Not at all."

"Meant to be huh?" Mary joined in with their laughs and lifted her shoulders, it still hurt seeing him happy. She smiled wider, sweeter and took another drink.

Chris broke away to catch his breath, but he started pressing kisses to her jaw and neck.

Cato nodded in agreement and walked after him.

"You don't?" Ferris asked, his brows furrowing. "But like, how?"

Clemence just shrugged but kept her eyes on Cole, happiness shining in them.

Sunny tilted her head back so he would have more access to the skin there. She tugged a little harder on his hair, winding it around her fingers.

They reached Jimmy John's within minutes, as it was surprisingly close, and Alec hesitated for a moment before walking inside. The red neon signs and loud music caught him off guard for a second, but he filed behind the humans already in line.

"I can't tell you. My contact would be really mad if I said anything," Andrew said. "But the moon does weird shit to me, too. Just so you know. So I totally get it."

"Well, I mean, you can find people anywhere," Cole said, smiling back at Clemence before turning to Mary.

“I have been everywhere, anywhere.” Mary blinked a couple of times before shrugging, she didn’t know why it got to her.

Chris started pushing her shirt up and let his hands go up underneath it. He movef his lips to her collarbone and left a mark there, then he lifted his head and kissed her lips again.

Cato frowned and shuffled a bit closer to Alec in the line. "How's this work?" He whispered.

"Oh," Ferris nodded and relaxed. He wouldn't pressure Andrew into telling him anything, but that was kind of comforting to know now.

"Where's your favorite place you've been?" Clemence asked, wanting to deter the conversation from their relationship. It was still pretty new, she didn't want anything to get messed up.

Sunny kissed him back and let her hands wander under his shirt, pushing it up in the process.

"We tell that person" - Alec nodded to the cashier - "what we want, and we pay for it, and they enter it into their computer thing and we get the food a few minutes later."

“Bali, amazing views, culture and waters.” Mary nodded with a smile on her face, it had been a few years since she was there. “You should go.”
