Cole beamed back and kissed hef softly. "I'll see what I can do, darlin'."

"Oh, I thought you were gonna go back to the underwater city." Andrew smed lightly and leaned back a little.

Sunny wrapped her arms around his shoulders and leaned into him, then looked around at the others.

"Let's look at some stuff online later," Clemence suggested before turning back toward the others.

"You can come help me look if you want," Ferris offered. He looked around at the others and then straightened up a bit. "So, we're all good here? Florida for spring break to look for witches?"

Chriss nodded to Ferris. "Yeah, I think we're all set."

"Cool, sounds like a plan," Cole said with a nod.

Andrew nodded and stood up, popping his back as he stretched out.

Sunny smiled softly as she looked over at the others, but her expression became more serious as she thought about how much money she'd have to save before that.

Clemence stood and stretched her arms over her head. "See y'all later, then?" she asked.

Ferris straightened up as well and nodded to Clemence. "Yeah, I'll see you guys, I gotta get going," he said and gestured toward the door.

Chris waved to Ferris and then looked over at Sunny. "All set?" he asked her, but then frowned when he saw her expression. "You alright?"

Andrew waved goodbye and followed Ferris out.

"Hm? Oh, yeah." Sunny turned to him and nodded. "Yeah, I'm just thinking. Budgeting."

"So...library?" Ferris asked Andrew.

"Don't worry too much, babe," Chris said as he kissed her cheek.

"What're you thinking for the rest of the night?" Cole asked Clemence, his eyes skirting over her as she stretched, admiring her.

"Yeah, if you really don't mind me tagging along," Andrew said with a small smile.

Sunny leaned into him and closed her eyes. "I'm trying not to. But gas is going to be a huge expense in and of itself, and that's not even considering where we'll stay, or how long we'll be there."

Clemence glanced at him, her lips quirking up with a smirk. "Well, I was thinking we could go back to one of our places," she started and leaned against him a bit, lowering her voice. "And we can make some food, and put on a movie and..." she trailed off, raising her eyebrows at him.

"Of course not," Ferris assured him. "I never mind having you around," he added with a slightly softer smile as he unlocked his car.

"Yeah, but we'll all be splitting the costs of that stuff if we all travel together," he said, brushing some hair behind her ear.

Cole smiled and took her hand, kissing her palm. "Yours or mine?"

"I appreciate that." Andrew smiled again and climbed into the passenger seat.

She nodded and leaned into his touch. "Yeah, I guess you're right."

"Hmmmm...your place," Clemence decided as she stood with a smile. "We'll see y'all later," she said to Chris and Sunny as she held onto Cole's hand and backed up toward the door.

Ferris got into the driver's side and headed for the library.

"See ya," he said as Clemence and Cole walked out. He turned his attention back to Sunny. "Do you want to hang out? I have some homework to do, but I wouldn't mind the company."

Cole waved to them, and squeezed Clemence's hand as they walked out.

Andrew tapped his fingers against his thigh for the duration of the ride, thinking about Florida and what they might find there.

"Sure, yeah. I actually have homework too, but I'd like to spend time with you." She smiled and kissed Chris softly before standing up to grab her books.

Clemence headed for the car, practically bouncing on her toes. "I know we're going for serious reasons, but I'm so excited for the trip!"

Ferris glanced at Andrew and bit the inside of his cheek. "Hey, how've you been?" He asked.

Chris leaned back and pulled his laptop from his bag to check over what homework he had.

"Me too. It'll be nice to get out of Beaumont," Cole said. He couldn't help but smile at her excitement.

"Hm? Oh, I've been good. How about you?" Andrew asked, turning to him.

Sunny grabbed her books and laptop and went back to sit beside Chris, looking over what all she had left to do.
"Did I tell you I changed my major?" she asked after a beat.

"No. Kidding," Clemence said dramatically as she got into the car. 

"Pretty good. It was nice to get out into the water for the first time in a while." Ferris tapped his fingers on the steering wheel and smiled to himself. "The mer are incredible."

"What?" Chris looking over at her, eyebrows lifted in surprise. "What'd you change to?" He asked, smiling.

Cole smiled again as he drove back to his place. Not knowing what they were going to find in Florida unnerved him, but he tried not to think about that.

"Yeah, definitely seems like it." Andrew smiled softly, watching Ferris tap on the wheel.

"Pre-med, but I'm gonna try to be a pharmacist instead. At least it's still the medical profession, but hopefully I can actually do this," Sunny answered, smiling now as well.
