"Yes I am. I'm looking after you, for all you know you could just pass out going to the toilet. I'm going to look after you, until I know you're fine." Mary stubbornly stated as she opened the door to get out, she then also proceeded to open his door.

"Hey!" Chris laughed and reached down with his foot to splash her back.

"Oh, nah, not unless I had a big stick or something," Ferris laughed.

Sunny laughed as well, splashing him again, this time with her hands. She was really glad Chris wasn't freaking out about her tail or anything.

"Have you taken care of almost dead werewolves before?" Cole asked her as they walked into the restaurant. Once the scent of spices and vegetables hit his nose, he felt better, and a small smile tugged at his lips.

"Even with your bare hands. I bet you could pummel Bigfoot," Andrew insisted, laughing.

"I have to say this is my first time. If I'm being honest." Mary replied her hands in her back pockets, her stomach churned for food, and her mouth salivated when she saw people with their food.

Chris slid off the rock and back into the water so he could better splash her.

"I have no idea where you've gotten that idea," Ferris laughed.

She shrieked a little in surprise and slid down under the water. At this point, the water wasn't too deep, and she lowered herself so she was laying on her belly. Sunny looked up at Chris from under the water, smirking at him.

Cole waited for the hostess to seat them before he answered her. "And this is my first time being taken care of, so we're even."

"I actually thought of it while we were at Sonic," Andrew said. "I don't know. There's just something in your face that tells me you could fight Bigfoot and win."

The hostess led them to the back of the restaurant which gave them the view of all of Beaumont. Mary sat herself down and looked out with a smile, "I suppose you can't remember ever wolfing out then?" Her fingers skimmed through the menu, her eyes fixated on the outside.

Cole shoo his head. "No. I can't remember anything after the first few seconds." Hopefully, she didn't know why, and wouldn't ask. He didn't want to talk about the awful, excruciating pain that came with the transformation.

Mary's eyes flickered back to Cole and smiled fondly towards him, she knew from the start what she wanted and pointed it out for the waitress. She then reached out to touch his hand, "when you're underwater just don't squirm let the water seep into your lungs, I hear sometimes it burns when it does but it's like inhaling air once your used to it."

"How long does it take to get used to it?" Cole asked her. He'd placed both a drink and food order when the waitress came by, and soon she brought them a platter of chips and a little salsa dish.

Chris stared at her and then frowned deeply, at a loss for what to do. He couldn't win if she was down there.

Ferris raised his eyebrows in genuine surprise. "Well...thankyou," he said.

Sunny waited a few seconds before swimming back up to the surface and splashing him again, laughing.

Andrew chuckled. "You're welcome."

"You're a cheater!" Chris laughed as he tried to block the water with his hands.

"I bet you could fight the Jersey Devil," Ferris shrugged and then smiled.

"I am not. I just take advantage of opportunities," Sunny argued, sticking her tongue out at him.

"Oh yeah, I could kick the Jersey Devil's ass," Andrew agreed. Especially on a full moon.

"Yeah, aka being a cheater!" Chris said and flicked water at her with a grin before he swam back to the rock.

"I see you've learned that confidence is key," Ferris laughed.
