Chris was driving back from home, since it wasn't really that far. He pulled into his driveway and got out, grabbing the duffel bag he'd taken with him.

Clemence drove back from the airport, but she couldn't get over the jitteriness she was feeling after her trip home. She pressed the call button on her car's steering wheel and instructed it to call Cole through the bluetooth.

Ferris had gotten back from the airport early in the morning and had spenta majority of his day totally passed out. Long flights were not his thing, but he'd had to go way out to see his godfather for the holiday.

Sunny sent Chris a quick text message asking her to let her know when he got to Beaumont safely, then decided that curling up in her blankets was a must. Maybe if she were lucky, he would come to curl up with her.

Cole felt his phone yo off in his back pocket, and he picked up with a smile. "Hey beautiful, how was your break?"

Chris looked at his phone as he set the bag down, but decided calling her would be a lot easier than texting while he put his clothes away.

"It was fine. Uh, insightful. Are you busy?" Clemence asked, biting on her lip. She was trying to keep the hint of desperation out of her voice, but after everything that had happened she really needed to see him.

"Hey, what's up?" Sunny asked, her smile growing wider.

"No, not at all. Is something wrong?" Cole drowned. Insightful. That could go a number of ways.

"Hey, sorry, I'm unpacking and this seemed easier. I just got back. Are you home?" Chris asked.

"No. Uh, no. We just - I need to see you," Clemence explained.

(Why does my frickin phone think all my characters are drowning. Why is "frown" not a word according to it. I'm like 90% sure I'm spelling it right)

Sunny nodded. "Yeah, I'm back. Just hanging out right now. Were the roads okay?" she asked, even though she realized too late that they were probably fine. North Carolina didn't exactly get a lot of snow or ice.

"All right. Yeah, my door's open, feel free," Cole said, going to sit on his couch.

(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 home from 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 itís been awhile!

(Effffff y cant I do this anymore .-.)

"Yeah, yeah, they were alright," Chris smiled. "How was home?" He asked.

"Okay, I'll be there soon," Clemence promised and then hung up.

(Idk man .-. )

"Loud, but good. Lana's decided she's too cool for us, which is always fun," Sunny aaid. "How was home for you?"

Cole took a breath as he slid his phone back into his pocket and turned on the TV to wait for her.

"It was alright," Chris sighed and laid back on his bed. "Hey, can I come over?'

(Wait I have an idea for added drama lemme pm you)

"Yeah, of course. Just let me know when you're here and I'll let you in." Sunny smiled and curled up i to her blanket, closing her eyes.

"Cool, I'll head over now. Love you," he said before he hung up and went back out to his car.

(Hmm I'm gonna wait on the drama but its defs still happening.)

Clemence pulled up to Cole's place and got out, texting him she was there as she walked up to the door.

Sunny smiled wider and set her phone under her pillow, pulling her blankets tighter around her.

Cole got up and opened the door, unable to stop the smile when he saw her. "Hey. How was your flight?"

Chris pulled in a few minutes later and called her again
To let her know he was there.

"It was fine," she shrugged and then stepped closer, hugging him tightly. "Missed you," she mumbled into his chest.
