"What do you mean by fun?" Alec asked, raising an eyebrow at her.

Sunny shrugged. "I'm sure your GPA is better than mine," she said quietly. "But even then, that's not the only kind of intelligence."

Cool, wanna hang? Andrew sent, swearing to himself when his colored pencils were all knocked to the floor.

"Oh, uh, nothing really. Just weird, random stuff," Cole said as he slipped his jacket on.

Chris gave her a soft 'mhm' but he was only half listening now. Since looking at the homework he'd started trying to work through the problem he'd stopped on in his head.

Yeah, definitely! I can come by the studio? Ferris offered, starting to put his things away. The Incan rock walls would have to wait.

"Ah, yeah. The other night I had this dream that Spiderman was eating spaghetti with my mom," Clemence said and shook her head as she adjusted her bag on her shoulder.

Sunny looked over at him, smiling softly, and kissed his shoulder where her lips were. She then read through the list of majors again, trying to find one she could tolerate.

Sure! You can bring your schoolwork, too, I don't care. Andrew readjusted how he was sitting and pushed his glasses up his nose again.

"Oh, really? Tobey Maguire Spiderman, British guy Spiderman, or Tony-Stark-sidekick Spiderman?" Cole asked, chuckling as they walked to his car.

Chris set back down and started working again, sitting his pencil in his mouth as he concentrated.

Sure, see you in a few! Ferris grabbed his things and headed out of the library and down to the art building. He had to double check where he was going, but then made his way to the studio Andrew was in.

"Tom Holland, obviously. He's adorable," Clemence said with a laugh.

Andrew looked up and grinned at Ferris as he came in. "Hey, how's it going?"

"He's the new one, right? The sidekick?" Cole asked for clarification. He hadn't been keeping up with movies very well.

"Eh, pretty good. How's your project?" Ferris asked as he set his stuff down, returning Andrew's grin.

"Yeah, that one," Clemence affirmed with a nod.

Oh I dont know. Lets go on an adventure - lets go swimming in unmarked territory, lets go have dinner in a different country. Lets do something to get her out of our minds. Mary nudged to both of them with a grin. Lets grt of Beaumont for awhile.

"Swimming in unmarked territory isn't the best idea," Alec remarked, although he wouldn't deny he was dying to go back to the water.

"Not bad. Pottery is definitely easier than this," Andrew said, and set his pencils down.

"You know, I still haven't seen that movie." Cole shrugged and climbed into the driver's seat.

"What country would we even go to?" Cato mumbled, unsure about wandering so far from Hypoccema.

"It all seems hard to me," Ferris laughed as he pulled his laptop out. "What are you supposed to do for it?"

"We should watch it! It's really good," Clemence said as she buckled her seatbelt in the passenger seat.

I love how youre really thinking about it. Like you really want to. Mary smiled widely at Cato and looked to the sea. Mmm. Cuba sounds great. And wed get to dance and have drinks as well. Ugh. She grinned like a Cheshire Cat.

(COOL)

Sunny flopped onto her bed, happy to be out of the air. Flying tended to make her feel dizzy and lightheaded, so being on solid ground again was a huge relief. Still, it was more practical than driving to Ohio and back.

Cole carefully stacked the last of his Thanksgiving leftovers in his fridge, thinking not for the first time how similar it was to Tetris, or Jenga. He also thought, not for the first time, about his mom, and the empty seat his father had left at the table for her. Cole wasn't sure if that made it worse or better.

For once, Andrew had some down time, and he decided to spend it playing Fallout 4.

(Oohwee my first thanksgiving)

Mary had arose from the water, and went to quickly get dry again.  She arrived from a long journey, and decided to come back before the full moon. She  looked to her phone and hastily she texted Alec. Hey you going home for the holiday?

Addie had kept low profile with the parties, and kept her head down with exams. She was in her library scouting through books and sighed. She then grabbed her phone and texted Ferris. Do you have a moment? Sorry its been awhile!

(Thanksgiving has already happened and they're back at school from being on break.)
