Chris glanced over at her once in a while, and a smile crept onto his face more and more every time. He decided that sunshine suited Sunny, a lot.

Mary smiled at the Clemence and nodded. “Hey, care for some pizza?” She asked leaning over Cole to the get the box.

Sunny turned to look at Chris, smiling again. "What are you thinking about?" she asked, and brushed some of her hair off her face.

"I'm fine. The doctors say I broke my collarbone and my arm on my left side, and I probably have deep tissue bruising. It doesn't hurt that bad, though." Cole shrugged with his functioning arm. "It sucks my car got totaled."

"You're beautiful," Chris said and smiled brighter.

"Damn," Clemence glanced him over, frowning. "The handyman can't fix his own car?" She tilted her head.

Mary watched them converse and smiled. "I'm guessing you managed to get him drunk last night?"

"You think so?" Sunny brightened, smiling again, and she sat up straighter in the seat.

"Not this time." Cole glanced between the girls, then said to Mary, "No, I managed to do that on my own. Like I do at every party I end up at."

"Yeah," he nodded and focused back on the road.

"He got drunk on his own. I should've made sure you got home alright, that was my fault," Clemencr said, looking down at Cole apologetically.

Mary held her arms up and smiled. "Last party we went to we didn't get drunk..." She chuckled and then bit her lip to stop what she was going to say next.

"Thank you." Sunny bit her lip, then lightly touched his hand, letting him feel how happy the compliment had made her.

Cole held his good hand up. "First of all, I get myself drunk. Second, no one is responsible for me but me. Third, Mary, you got me high at the last party we went to, so I don't even want to hear it."

Chris looked at her hand, then at her. He just smiled and turned away as he turned into the parking lot and got out, coming around to open her door.

Clemence looked between them and raised an eyebrow. "Uh...am I missing something? Are you two, like, a thing?"

Sunny smiled and thanked him as he opened her door. She slid out of the car, deciding to leave her backpack behind, and slid her swim top into the back pocket of her jeans.

Cole shook his head and cleared his throat. "No. We're not a thing."

“I’m not sure if we’re even a friend thing to be fair...” Mary had taken upon herself to drink his juice.

Chris followed her onto the beach, pulling his shoes off before he reached the sand.

Clemence nodded and then smiled slightly. "Well that's good, I'm not into two-timers," she said. "I'm glad you're feeling alright, Cole."

The sand was hot, but it felt good underneath Sunny's bare feet. She smiled to herself as she and Chris walked on the beach, and once they were far enough away from the public area, she set her stuff down.

"Yeah, thanks. Appreciate it." Cole nodded once and stretched out his good shoulder.

Chris watched her for a second, then sat down by her stuff.

(Sooo how do werewolves heal in this here storyline)
She nodded and looked over his cast. "So you're doing okay? Seems like that'd be pretty traumatic."
