OOC

The butler rushed through the large mansion of a beach house and cleaned with great speed. They’d be arriving anytime now and he had to make sure that everything was in order. The light of the day filtered in through the glass doors and windows and seasoned the beach house with beauty. The butler finished his cleaning and organizing. The last of the paint and decorating crew left with no trace that they had been there. All the rooms that the students would inhabit were designed based on the specifications they had sent in with their application.

The butler smiled as he placed eight credit cards on the table in the living room area. This area was adjacent to the front door, and the first place the students would go. It was next to the beautiful kitchen; just around the corner in fact. Each card had the name of the student on it, and a spending limit of 5,000 dollars. The butler also placed two keys on top of each card. The first key was shaped like a heart and it was the entrance key to the mansion. The second key was shaped like the state the student came from. This key was the room door keys. There was also a key card given only to those students who were twenty-one and older. Those students who were twenty-one and older would find the key cards underneath their credit cards. After making sure that everything was in place, the butler stood up straight and waited outside in front of the front door for the arrival of the students. He had been hired to make sure that the student’s stay was one full of relaxation.

Each room contained its own full sized bathroom, as well as a 40" flat screen television, a blu ray player, and a laptop on the bed that would be used to keep the online journals. There were also computer desks in each room as well as a office on the first floor of the beach house. This place was definitely only for the rich and famous, but for this Spring Break, it was going to be the place to be for these lucky students
======================================================
Adrian Sanchez

The plane landed at the airport, delivering its cargo of passengers to their destination. Those aboard the plane were kindly asked to gather their belongings inside the terminal, and to enjoy their stay in Miami, Florida. Two individual who hadn’t seen each other in quite a while stepped off the airplane. Adrian Sanchez, a young mathematics major, stepped into the terminal and grabbed his bags. He hadn’t noticed anyone while he made sure that all of his belongings were present. He kept his earphones in and listened to his music while he gathered his things and made his way to the front end of the terminal. As he moved towards the front end, a guy caught his eye. If he wasn’t so preoccupied with getting to the beach house, he would’ve thought that he had seen someone he once knew. Sighing, he noticed the large sign the read “Adrian Sanchez” which was held by some uptight driver. He approached the man and smiled.

“I’m Adrian Sanchez,” he stated as he followed the well-dressed driver.

The drive to the beach house was a relaxing one, and it eased Adrian’s nerves from the plane ride. He didn’t like planes, for his fear of heights always made him queasy during plane rides. He laid his head back and attempted to find some solace during this ride.

“Excuse me, sir, we’re here,” the driver stated as he softly shook Adrian awake.

Adrian awoke with a slight jump having forgotten that he was in a different place. The driver smirked and helped Adrian with his belongings. All three suitcases were carried up to the mansion entrance and sat down just outside the front door where the butler stood.

“Welcome to Miami Florida. I trust that your stay here at the estate will be a marvelously relaxing one. Others are on their way, but while they are in transit, please do come in, and find your room. Don't forget to retrieve the cards with your name on them, as well as the set of keys. Each room has a name plate on it; it is a simple game of find the room. Again, do enjoy your stay. Once everyone is here I will explain things to do.”

Adrian smiled and carried his bags inside the mansion. Adrian smiled and carried his bags inside the mansion. He walked over to the table and gathered the credit card with his name on it, the key card with his name on it, and the set of keys. One was shaped like a heart, and the other was in the shape of Puerto Rico. Adrian smiled and turned around. He took the closest stairs and found his room with little problem. He walked in and nearly cursed. The room was designed to his specifications. It was amazing. Everything was in place. A laptop computer lay on the bed. Adrian trailed a finger along the laptop and smiled. This place was awesome. He took his bags and lined them up along the wall adjacent to the door to his room. He was very satisfied and overly excited to meet the rest of the group. Until then, he turned on the TV, a 40” flat screen that was probably in every room in this place. He lay on the extremely soft yet comfortable bed and waited for the butler to retrieve him.

Danielle watched out the small circular window, as the large plane landed after a short two and a half hour flight. She stood up, relieving her legs from a cramp that haunted her non-stop throughout the flight. Grabbing her small red duffle bag, she headed out of the plane behind the long line of passengers, and into the baggage claim area to grab her luggage. When her two light green suitcases emerged from the small tunnel, she grabbed both of the handles, and hauled them over to her side. She pulled them along towards a long line of people holding signs, and stopped as she came across a man holding a sign with her name written on it.

“Are you Danielle Palmer?” asked the man holding the sign.
“Yes, I am.” She said happily.

“Alright, right this way.”

The man took hold of one of her suitcases and led her towards his car.

The entire drive to the house consisted of Danielle bugging the driver with her questions about the city. As they pulled up in front of the house, the man sighed in relief, glad to finally escape further questions asked by her. She opened the car door before the driver made it to her side, and lugged her two suitcases, and duffle bag to the door.

“Welcome to Miami!” The butler standing at the door said. “Just inside you will find cards with your name on it, as well as a set of keys. When looking for your room, you will notice there are name plates placed upon them. Yours will obviously state your own name. I hope your stay here is truly relaxing; the others shall be here soon. When they arrive, I shall apply further instructions.” The butler said, as if it was scripted.

“Thanks.” Danielle smiled, and then walked inside retrieving the cards and keys with her name. She placed them in the pocket of her sweater, and pulled her luggage up the stairs closest to her, and finally coming across a door with her name placed on it. Unlocking the door, she threw her suitcases in, and looked around the room, her smile growing wider. She ran over to the bed, jumping onto it, and resting there for a few minutes. As she finally grew anxious to see the rest of the house, she hopped off the bed, and slowly walked down the stairs, still taking in her new surroundings. She walked through a pair of glass doors, and stood there staring out at the water, enjoying the warmth tickling her skin.
Look for the girl with the broken smile...

Somewhere in the crowds of the airport, a mohawked man was tugging along a petite blonde, while pushing a trolley full of luggage. "Mark! Slow down. There is no need to rush. I'm going to fall over if you ar-" Too late. Evelyn had already tripped over the side of the trolley, her shoulder bag flying as she fell. "Mark." Evie growled, after she had landed on her bottom with a thud. "Hey, hey, it's your fault. Your the clumsy one." Mark laughed, pulling her up gently, handing her shoulder bag to her. Evie pouted, pulling her shoulder bag onto her arm, sulkily. Mark rolled his eyes and grabbed her hand again, pulling his sister through the crowds once more. Evie sulked as he pulled her along. "Cheer up blondie, I found our driver." Mark pointed ahead to an older man holding up a placard with DeLaney printed on it. Mark pushed the trolley up. "Mark and Evelyn here." He flashed the man a smile and let him help with the trolley.

Within minutes they were sitting in the back of the car. Evelyn had cheered up considerably. "Mark, this place is so beautiful." She spoke, staring out the backseat window. "It may be beautiful, but I cant look because your taking up most of the back seat." Mark muttered, running a hand over his mohawk. "I am not." She frowned at him. Mark just rolled his eyes as the car pulled up. He thanked the driver, and got out of the car, following Evie. Grabbing his two blue sports bags, Evie grabbed her several colorful suitcases,following her brother to the front door.

“Welcome to Miami!” The butler standing at the door said. “Just inside you will find cards with your name on it, as well as a set of keys. When looking for your room, you will notice there are name plates placed upon them. Hopefully it isn't to hard to find your own rooms. I hope your stay here is truly relaxing; the others shall be here soon." The butler smiled at them, letting them inside. "Thank you." Evie chimed first, before Mark spoke his own thank you of his own. Evie was first to reach her keys and she smiled. She skipped up to find her room, and when she did, she was lost for words. For once. It was amazing. Mark had gone to his room and after chucking his bags onto the floor, he grinned and went off to find Evie. "Yo sis, like you room?" He came across her in the hallway. She nodded, grinning at him. "Let's go for a little wander shall we?" He asked. "Alright." Evelyn smiled and she practically bounced down the hallway, the taller male following and shaking his head, amused.

How did they manage to make airports so confusing and filled with people? Well, on second thought, the last one made sense. Matt smiled at his own folly and grabbed his bags. Flying didn't bother him. The airports did, and he was anxious to get out of this one and settled in at this place they were going to be staying at.
"Matthew Snow!" someone called and held out a sign, scouting through the mass of people. Matt turned and saw this man holding the sign, in the attire of a cab driver.
"That's me!" he said and shook his hand. The elderly man reached down to help him with his bags, but Matt shook his head. "Don't worry about that, I got it." he said and smiled. The man smiled back and nodded.
Once they were in the car, it was a calm ride. The elderly man asked a few questions and Matt was happy to answer. They talked about where they were from and where Matt was going.
"Thanks for the ride!" he said as he got out of the car when they arrived at the destination. Matt handed him some money for the ride.
"Thank you, but I've already been paid." the man said.
"I know...Keep it." Matt smiled and waved him off, heading for the door.

Inside there stood a butler in the massive entrance hall, and he approached Matt. He explained how the cards they were given worked, and a bit about their rooms. Matt took his keys and his cards and headed for his room. 'Matthew Snow' was written with golden letters, beautifully swung across a small sign on the door. As he unlocked it and shoved it open, he felt that rush in his stomach.
"Holy fuck..." he let out and his jaw dropped. Stepping inside, he swung the bags off his broad shoulders and onto the floor, next to the bed. This was amazing. It had everything. This place had everything! Matt couldn't help a smile and a small laugh as he lay down on the bed. After a few minutes, he heard his stomach rumble and then sighed. He didn't mind flying, but it always made him hungry.
The hall was empty as he went outside again and walked along it. The butler had said that the rest of the guests would be there soon. He shrugged and thought nothing of it. With a determined mind, he set off to explore this vast place and see a little more of it.

~Dorián Saunders~

The plane ride to Miami Florida was very boring. He hadn’t the faintest idea what to expect this spring break. Sure he was going to a different state, and away from his friends, but he felt a bit of remorse for not telling them. He knew they’d have come if he had told them, but he wanted to try and relax and meet new people. This trip would do just that. He had allowed himself to fall asleep while on the plane, and as it descended from the baby blue sky, Dorián awoke. The screech could be heard as the tires of the plane touched the ground and the brakes initiated. The plane slowed down and came to a sudden halt as the passengers on the plane were allowed to exit. Dorián was the first off with his mini duffle bag looped in his arms as if it were a purse of some sort. He walked rather quickly as he made his way to gather the rest of his things.

Finding the vehicle that would take him to this house wasn’t a problem. The guy who was holding the sign with his last name on it was rather cute, and when Dorián approached the man, he could’ve sworn he saw the man eye him up and down as if wanting a taste of what Dorián had to offer. Dorián adjusted his sunglasses and walked pass the man, entering the limousine while the man loaded the trunk with his bags. He did not speak, but he did text while the man drove the vehicle towards the much awaited destination. After about twenty minutes, the driver decided to break the silence.

“So, what’s your name?” he asked with a slight smirk.

“Oh, pardon me, I’m Dorián, and you are?” Dorián replied as he tilted the glasses down to get a better view of the driver’s face. Indeed he was cute, and far be it from Dorián to not flirt while in Miami Florida.

“I’m Derrick. I normally don’t do this, but since you’re new here, there is a party tonight, and I’d be happy to come by and pick you up if you’re up for it,” Derrick replied as he continued to drive, though Dorián noticed the glances he got from Derrick every so often.

“Hmmm, sounds like a good idea. How about we exchange numbers and I’ll let you know before the party starts?” Dorián replied as he held his phone in an odd way, as if it were worthy nothing.

Derrick smiled and gave his number to Dorián and Dorián returned the favor. By this time, Derrick was pulling into the driveway for the mansion/beach house. Dorián’s eyes lit up like fireworks as he slowly exited the vehicle. Derrick carried Dorián’s bag to the front door and turned to leave, but Dorián stopped him.

“So, I don’t get a goodbye kiss for now?”

Derrick leaned forward and met Dorián lips with his own. The two kissed for a good five minutes before Dorián pulled away and smirked.

“Mmmm, yes I’ll definitely be giving you a call,” Dorián stated as he trailed a finger along the chest and stomach of Derrick. Of course the man was dressed so he really only touched Derrick’s clothing.

Derrick smiled and waved as he drove off from the mansion/beach house. A butler emerged from the rather large home and began to speak.

“Ahh, you are the last to arrive. Please do come in, I shall gather the others quickly. Remember, gather your credit card, key card, and keys off of the table in the living area. I will show you to your room later. Please come in and have a seat.”

The butler carried Dorián’s bags up to his room while Dorián gathered his belongings from the table. He put them up securely and waited for the butler to return. The butler went around the house and gathered everyone who had arrived. He instructed them to report to eh living room area. When he returned to the living room area, Adrian, Matthew, Mark, Evelyn, Danielle, Dominique and Ciara were all in tow behind him. When everyone was in the living area, the butler began to speak.

“First and foremost, I welcome you all yet again to Villa Valentina. This is one of the most prestigious estates in Miami Florida. You will be staying here for your spring break, and while you are here I must ask that you respect the property as well as respect each other. The computers you found on your beds are to be used to keep your online journals for each day you are here. The credit cards you obtained have a spending limit of 5,000 dollars, and the key cards with your name on it are for those students who are twenty one and older. It will give you access to the liquor bar which is located directly behind the kitchen. Simply swiping your card will gain you entry, but to ensure that there is no underage drinking, those without key cards have their DNA within the computer system and if they attempt to enter along with one who has a key card, that person’s key card will not work. You cannot bring alcohol out of the bar area, as the alarm will sound and it will lock down. The keys you have are for your room and the mansion front door. The back door works with a password which is located in a file on your computer. Now, I am Phelix, I will be your butler while you are here. Trust that I will not stay in this house, but rather in the guest house around back. If you get into a fight, please don’t try to kill one another, but I will not stop you from fighting, I’ll merely call the police. Transportation to any place you want to go is provided, though you can use your own transportation. A 2011 Ford Edge, and a 2011 Chevy Malibu are available to you, the keys are located beside the front door, and the vehicles are located in the garage. Once your spring break comes to an end, return all merchandise you’ve obtained, aside from the credit card and laptop which will remain yours forever. I do hope you enjoy your stay here and should you need me, simply pressing the button on the computer system on the wall will summon me.”

Phelix pointed to the rather large computer monitor that was all touchscreen on the adjacent wall. It had various buttons, but one in particular stated “Butler” and the others stated various things. Phelix made his exit and left all of the students to get to know one another.

As soon as Dorián caught sight of Ciara and Ciara caught sight of him, they both screamed and ran to each other, hugging each other and laughing rather loudly. This was going to be the best spring break ever. They instantly began catching up, telling each other what had happened since they last saw each other three years ago. They sat down beside each other.

As Adrian stood there in a bit of awe, his eyes scanned each and every one of his “roommates” and nearly choked when he laid eyes upon Dorián.

“Damn,” he said softly as he attempted to turn his face, but Dorián had already noticed him.

“Oh my God,” Dorián said rather loudly as he crossed his legs and turned his head. The tension between the two filled the room as quick as gas would have, and it was so thick that one could metaphorically cut it with a butter knife.

“How have you been Dorián?” Adrian eventually asked as he sat down, “I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am ready to get this party started.”

“I’m fine Adrian, and of course you’d want to party, commitment is beneath you.”

~Dorian, Adrian & Ciara~

Adrian glared daggers at Dorián as if the male had spoken forbidden words. He looked at Dorián and shook his head.

“You still haven’t changed,”

"Guys I don't think........" Ciara had begun, but was interrupted.

“What the hell does that supposed to mean?” Dorián replied, the anger laced in his tone.

“Exactly my point, you think you know every damn thing. You wanna know why we broke up? Because I fell out of love with you. Always demanding me to do something. Always assuming that I was cheating. Always smothering me. Like damn baby, that’s not what a relationship is about,” Adrian stated, his voice raising a bit.

“Oh and I suppose cheating on me was supposed to be your way of teaching me a life lesson? Fuck you Adrian. It took me years to get over you and your infidelity. You know damn well I wasn’t smothering you. Let’s get to the real reason why you broke up with me, shall we?” Dorián retorted, his face plastered with anger.

“Do you really want to do this on Spring Break? Do you really want to do this in front of these people?” Adrian asked attempting to take control of the issue.

“I don’t give a flying fuck what you want Adrian. They might as well know about you. Now, let’s have it. WHY DID YOU CHEAT ON ME? WHY DID YOU BREAK MY HEART INTO A MILLION PIECES AND STEP ON THEM? WHY DID YOU DO WHAT YOU DID?”

By now tears had begun to form in Dorián’s eyes and Adrian hated seeing him cry. It was his weakness, he still loved Dorián with all his heart, but there were things in their relationship that needed to be fixed, and he wasn’t sure how. He looked at Dorián, everything in him wanted to comfort him, to touch him and show him how much he loved him, but his past told differently. He sighed and looked away.

“So, no answer?” Dorián began as he sat there for a few moments before he stood to his feet, “fine, have it your way Adrian.”

Dorián stormed off towards the bar. He swiped his card and immediately gained entry. The first thing he reached for was some Hypnotic and some Hennessey. He began pouring shots after shot attempting to drown out the pain he was feeling. He still loved Adrian, and it hurt to know that Adrian still hadn’t owned up to what he had done. The alcohol went roughly down Dorián’s throat, but the tears started flowing.

Adrian exhaled and wanted so badly to go after him, but was stopped when Simon introduced himself.

“Sup, I’m Adrian, pleasure to meet all of you, excuse me for a moment.”

Adrian had conflicting feelings at the moment, but he had to make sure Dorián was alright, regardless of what had just happened. Old sparks had rekindled and both of them could feel it, but how was he going to win back Dorián if he never forgave him for the incident? He entered into the bar room slowly as he watched Dorián take down another shot of Hypnotic.

“Easy there, you don’t want to drink too much of that stuff on an empty stomach,” Adrian said softly as he attempted to approach Dorián.

Dorián, now feeling a little buzzed, looked at Adrian and turned his head. He wiped the tears with a piece of tissue and sighed.

“What do you want Adrian? An award for breaking hearts?”

Adrian kept inching closer to Dorián not saying a word until he was close enough to him to hug him. When Adrian’s arms wrapped around Dorián’s body, he instantly pushed Adrian away and threw the remainder of alcohol in his glass into Adrian’s face. He stormed out of the bar, through the living room area, and went straight towards the pool. Once outside, he sat down silently by the pool and sighed, wiping tears as they came. He was determined not to allow Adrian the satisfaction of seeing him cry. He was going to have fun this Spring Break and he was going to enjoy himself regardless of what happens. He took off his knee high boots, and then his socks before dipping his feet into the pool.

Adrian exited the bar after having a shot of tequila, and rejoined the others.

“Sorry about that.”

Ciara looked at Adrian and sighed. She knew all too well about their relationship and quickly ran after her brother. As she sat down next to him, she dipped her cute toes into the water to test its warmth. When it was right to her tastes, she lowered her feet in and smiled.

"It's okay big bro, everything will be alright," She said softly, consoling him as best she could.

He was the oldest, and she was the youngest, normally she was in these types of situations, not him, and the idea that her big brother was upset made Ciara a bit upset as well. They hadn't seen each other in so long, but they did keep in touch, and the conversations over the phone did not suffice when she needed her brother to be there in physical form. Now that they'd be staying in the same house together the entire spring break, she wasn't going to let it be ruined by drama. She rubbed her brother's back as she leaded in against his shoulder.

"I love you Dorian, but right now I need for you to pull it together for the both of us."

Re: A Spring Break to Remember (IC-Mature)

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Caille on Fri Feb 03, 2012 2:24 am

Dominique was having her typical morning before heading to the airport. She was smoking one of her cigarette's. Did she like to smoke? Not so much. Did she know the risks? Hell yea she did. Was she trying to quit? Well you could say that. Dominique always found it lowered her stress levels and she had struggled to have only three cigarette's a day. One after every meal. She was completely stunned that she had saved up so much money and now she could see spring break being nice considering it would be fantastic to have money and to have a nice house. She had one of the worst places to live. It was a torn down shack and a former drug house all though it wasn't much of former because her family members that lived there still grew drugs and all that. Dominique would never touch those and to be honest she was hardly at home anyway, it was a hell pit that she was suffocated in.

Dominique took one last drag and then exhaled while throwing her cigarette on the ground and stepping on it twisting her foot to make sure it was out and then she sprayed perfume on her a bit to mask the smell of smoke and then grabbed her bags and started to walk to the air port which would of course take a few hours.

Walking by many speeding cars and the rain just trickling where she was she was making progress on her way there and honestly, she could tell everyone would have more than one bag meanwhile she has one small suite case and a mini back back filled with things. Which ranged from quite a few different things to be quite honest. A few times bums would ask for money and she shoved them aside and continued on her journey. It was considered mean but it was her money that she had and she wasn't giving it up because really she was at that square, once and she had no plans on returning. After another fifteen minutes of walking she could see the airport insight and she started to run up to it.

After boarding the flight and it took a few hours the wheels were landing and she was there. After arriving she was making her way through the airport. Get her bags from baggage claim and then she started to walk past many people and on her way out the door. Upon going out the doors she found a taxi of some sort that was supposed to take her and on she went to the place she was meant to spend her vacation.

Arriving there she walked onto the grounds but was only greet by the butler. "Hello, m'lady. who might you be?" He asked. "I'm Dominique Andresen." She said and soon shortly she was told where everything was and she was allowed to go inside. Going inside she walked in and picked up her keys going to find her room, and shortly after she found her room and entered putting her bags inside and just shortly after that everyone had apparently arrived and she was basically herded like sheep into the living room and things were explained from the butler. Dominique sat there with her arms crossed and half listened to what the man was saying but she understood it all.

He left and then they were all able to do what ever they pleased and right off the at there was some drama. To ex's and then there must have been a sister that she could tell and she tried to make a note that it may be a bad idea to be around them, seeing as how bad things may end up and she better be safe than sorry. Honestly Dominique didn't have much to say to anyone and not much to do but maybe if she searched she could find a music room of some sorts but she hardly doubted it. Good thing she brought her guitar at least.

Not even twenty minutes did he get to roam around before they were all rounded up in a room. Everyone stood there silent as the butler spoke ever so politely. Matt listened closely but still couldn't help looking around at the people who were present, and wonder what kind of people they were.
Oh so we're allowed to leave as we please then? he thought to himself as he listened. Oh God.. Cars.. those cars, in the garage? For us to use? how could they afford all this?
Someone with a lot of money must be behind all this.

Matt was just about to move and perhaps approach one of them, as two people rushed towards each other. Siblings apparently. Brother and sister. They hugged and started talking eagerly as they sat down, but not long did they have to wait for the drama to set in. Another person there, Adrian, had apparently been involved with this - the brother - Dorián. Romantically involved. And suffice to say, it hadn't ended in a good way. Or so Matt guessed from the immediate (and loud) discussion that ensued.
"Guys.." Matthew started, wanting to cool them down. This was making everyone awkward here, but before he could get another word out they continued. It all ended in Dorián storming off into the bar area, and the rest of them left there to ponder what the fuck this was all about. Adrian apologized and walked after him, but a few minutes later Dorián came - with tears down his face - storming out of the bar as well. The sister to Dorián had to be feeling so weird right now. Matt would anyway, and by the look of her, she did. He felt a little sorry for her and gave her a slight, awkward smile before she went after her brother who had otherwise looked so inconsolable.

"Sorry about that." a voice rang. That was Adrian who'd come back to the group. Matt breathed deeply and walked over to him.
"Hi, I'm Matt." he said and shook his hand. He avoided commenting on what had just happened, as he didn't know these people very well. If it was going to cause a reaction like Dorián's, Matt would rather not speak at all. Yet he did anyway.

This was quite an interesting start to the stay in this amazing place, although potentially problematic. The two of them would have to make it work somehow, if this wasn't going to be very unpleasant.
It would really be a shame if one of them had to leave this place because of it. And in the wake of all this, Matt had a feeling that they'd probably get more than a few drinks tonight, to ease up the tention from today.
"Hey listen, if you want it or need it, I'll have a drink with you tonight." he said to Adrian and patted his shoulder friendly. "I would've bought it for you, but hey, that's not an issue here." Matt smiled and hoped the joke wouldn't peel off. If he could lighten Adrian's mood and maybe if he'd take him up on that offer, Adrian might feel a little better and actually come and have a drink with him tonight.
Matthew Snow looked around at the remaining people there and saw a quiet girl standing alone. He'd seen her with a guitar on her back earlier, catching a glimpse of her as she entered the mansion.
He caught her gaze and smiled at her warmly, trying to make a good impression. He really wanted to have fun and relax, but then again, Matt couldn't help the urge to go to the bar tonight and have a blast on this, the opening night. As always when he met new people, Matt was excited to get to mingle, but also a bit concerned of what they might think of him. He'd always had good experience with people, and always been the guy who was always there. And he was, always. Matt didn't do it for any particular reason, he just liked being a good guy. It's who he is, he just needed to hear it from time to time.
As he stood there for a moment, waiting for Adrian's reply, he found the coin in his pocket and picked it up. In the mix of the people here, Matt could see that he stood out in one way. Firstly, he was broad shouldered and muscular. Not because he worked out like crazy, but that was how he was built. And secondly, only one other guy came really close to his own height. He hoped it didn't have any effect on how they'd see him as a person. It shouldn't anyway.

Re: A Spring Break to Remember (IC-Mature)

Danielle quickly walked back through the doors as she heard voices coming into the main floor as the butler retrieved everyone from their rooms. She peered around at all the new strangers as she sat herself down, half cross-legged on one of the sofas.

Five thousand dollars, AND free alcohol?! Wow. She thought to herself, thinking this would be so much better than she thought it was, while listening intently to the butler.

After Phelix, their new butler, left, two people, whom have obviously already known each other, met up in the middle with a hug and began what seemed was catching up. Danielle shifted as Tension filled the room, and watched as a drama had already begun to fill out. She watched the two argue, realizing they must have been a former couple, Danielle wondered how that would turn out through the next few weeks.

As “Adrian,” the guy who had just introduced himself, made his way over to “Dorian,” a name she overheard him being called, Dorian splashed his face with the remaining alcohol left in his cup. Danielle looked awkwardly at the others around, as Dorian left with what seemed to be his sister running after him, while Adrian returned.

“Well I’m Danielle.” She announced after a few others.

Danielle smiled, excited for the days to come and relieved she was finally be able to relax.

*Click*Click*Click*
The pointed heels of Reader's shoes clacked against the marble flooring of the airport as her father's secretary blabs about the things she should remember while on her "vacation". What she must do and what she must prevent from doing. But as usual, she would rather not mind the long list of how she should behave. For once, she wanted to break free from their expectations. The very reason why she chose to accept this proposal for Spring Break.

Away from the pressure and into a place where she doesn't know anybody. A chance to reinvent herself and decide on what she wanted to do after she had just graduated from a four year course in Yale.

"Read, are you listening?" Louis asked when she noticed that she wasn't paying any attention. She returned her gaze towards the woman, covered by her sunglasses, and gave off a frustrated sigh. "Look, the plane is already boarding. I need to get in so that Dixie can get settled into our seat," She complained as she lifted her dog into her arms.

"Okay, okay, but don't do anything your father and mother won't approve," the secretary finally said. Dumping her pen in her bag and handing Read a list and her plane ticket.
"As always," She finalized their conversation so that she can get away from her. She quickly grabbed the paper and walked towards the boarding area with Dixie in her arms and her tote dangled from her left arm. She handed the stewardess her ticket and she was lead in one of the fine seats.

After a almost 3 hours of non stop flight, Reader was welcomed from the frigid weather of New York to the bright and sunny Florida. She instantly felt her skin glow from the warmth, something her skin has got to get used to and a few bottles of high SPF sunblock or sun tan if she wanted to survive.

"Madam James?" A man wearing a fine suite suddenly appeared at her side.

"Yes?" Her left eyebrow instantly rose and was very obvious despite the sunglasses and straw hat that covered a part of her face.

"I'm Charles from Villa Valentina. The service car is waiting, I have already managed to deal with your luggage." He politely answered. Giving Reader a satisfied smile.

"Very well," She let Dixie down and held her leash tightly as the dog walked as if it was familiar with the place. Sniffing around and it's tail wagging with excitement.

----------------

Charles opened the limousine door for her as she was welcomed by the great faced of the Villa. Everything looked pristine and remarkable for her standards. She's been to a lot of expensive resorts and vacations but this will be her first alone.

"Just when I thought I've seen all guests, the board had quickly informed me of you Miss James. I'll be the butler in service Madam. I may sound like a broken record but I welcome you to Villa Valentina. This is one of the most prestigious estates in Miami Florida. You will be staying here for your spring break, and while you are here I must ask that you respect the property as well as respect each other. The computers you found on your beds are to be used to keep your online journals for each day you are here. The credit cards you obtained have a spending limit of 5,000 dollars, and the key cards with your name on it are for those students who are twenty one and older. It will give you access to the liquor bar which is located directly behind the kitchen. Simply swiping your card will gain you entry, but to ensure that there is no underage drinking, those without key cards have their DNA within the computer system and if they attempt to enter along with one who has a key card, that person’s key card will not work. You cannot bring alcohol out of the bar area, as the alarm will sound and it will lock down. The keys you have are for your room and the mansion front door. The back door works with a password which is located in a file on your computer. Now, I am Phelix, I will be your butler while you are here. Trust that I will not stay in this house, but rather in the guest house around back. If you get into a fight, please don’t try to kill one another, but I will not stop you from fighting, I’ll merely call the police. Transportation to any place you want to go is provided, though you can use your own transportation. A 2011 Ford Edge, and a 2011 Chevy Malibu are available to you, the keys are located beside the front door, and the vehicles are located in the garage. Once your spring break comes to an end, return all merchandise you’ve obtained, aside from the credit card and laptop which will remain yours forever. I do hope you enjoy your stay here and should you need me, simply pressing the button on the computer system on the wall will summon me.”

"Arf! Arf!" Dixie did the responding for her as her eyes wander around the vicinity and finally on Phelix.

"My, aren't you a cute one?" Phelix recognized Dixie's presence but didn't bother to bend down and pet her. +1 on Reader's book, no one touches Dixie without her permission.

Charles arrived shortly with saying that he had brought her luggage into her room. 2 for her and 1 for Dixie's needs. "Madam, here's your key and card." He handed her a key attached to key chain in the shape of New York and a credit card with her name on it. "We will let you do the hunting for your bedroom. If you need me, I will be a ring away." Phelix and Charles bowed and went their separate ways.

Reader tugged on Dixie's leash as she made her way when she heard someone shouting and few others talking. Drama already? She thought. She was hoping to find herself and meeting less people as much as possible, she was never the sociable type. People usually approach her, because most of the time they needed something from her. She has no one to call as her best friend, never did she called another girl in the middle of the night to complain about pimples or her period. Whenever her relationships fail, she sulk alone and goes back to school or work the next day- as if nothing happened.

But something told her to check what was happening with the other guests, Dixie thought of the same thing and started pulling on her leash towards the other people.

"Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf!" Dixie wagged her tail when they saw a few people who most likely knew each other already.

She stood there as the wind blew on to her floral green dress waiting for the other people to speak to her first.

"You're right sis, I need to get it together and get my game face on. Besides, this is Miami, and I already have some plans for later on. In fact, let me go see who all wants to go party tonight."

The sun was slowly beginning to set. Night was soon approaching, which meant the night life of Miami Florida would be in full effect soon.

A smirk crept its way onto his face as he picked up his phone. The night was drawing near, and he wanted to get out and have some fun. Placing a quick call, he informed Derrick that he'd love to go out tonight to the party he had mentioned, but he advised him that he'd be bringing some roommates. After hanging up the phone, he calmly walked back into the house and touched a button on the computer screen that read "INTERCOM"

"Attention everyone,

I, the wonderful and magnificent Dorian, am inviting you all to a night on the town TONIGHT. Get your gear together and your outfits right, because this is going to be the initiation phase to see who can hang and who can't."

Dorian released the button after hearing his voice ring out throughout the beach house. He was satisfied and made his way into the kitchen. He was going to ignore Adrian for now, and avoid him. Ciara shook her head, but simply smiled and went about her own business, introducing herself to everyone in the house before making her way to her room to get ready.

Adrian sat quietly as he observed everyone. One by one he introduced himself to everyone who had come through the front door of the beach house. He was getting different vibes from everyone. Some of them were here to have fun, others were here to relax. Everyone was here for a reason, and he enjoyed the variety. One sketched alot, one was a big flirt, one had a dog for Christ sake, and there were still others who had had yet to assess, but he had introduced himself to them as well. This was a wild group of people, but he was certainly only here to make friends, and not attempt to get every girl in his bed, or every guy. Sighing, he listened to Dorian as he spoke over the intercom and simply laughed. Dorian was so full of himself sometimes, but that's what Adrian loved about him. He had confidence that exuded from his pores, and Adrian found it attractive. He stood to his feet, and nodded to the assembled group before heading off to his room to get ready for the party.

Danielle waved at the new girl who had just walked in with a ton of bags, a dog, and a pretty little sun dress. Being a crazy animal-loving person, she jumped up from the couch and walked over to look at the little dog.

“He’s so adorable! Or she...” Danielle said to the girl. “By the way I’m Danielle.” She smiled then paused to listen to the message being played on the intercom. Going out on the first night? Danielle was definitely down. She looked back to the girl with the dog. “Well, I’m going to go get ready, catch you later!” She smiled slightly then scurried back up the stairs and down the hall to her room. As she walked into her room, she walked around just looking at everything, still amazed by how nice it was. Time to get ready. She thought to herself

Danielle first took a quick shower to rid of the gross lingering feeling she always got after a flight. Even the shower was beautiful! Danielle thought again to herself.

After taking a shower, she dried her hair styling it into effortless, messy curls, usually what she would always do. She thought about what everyone else was going to wear, having no idea of how casual she should dress according to.

5 minutes later, she finally decided to throw on a pair of black skinny jeans, and a loose black tank top with a few black sparkles. She pulled out a pair of shoes, and her gray jacket from one of the closets, and layed them across her bed. “Now for makeup.” She sighed and then quickly put on her usual.

When she was finally ready she pulled out the laptop that was given, and wrote her first entry inside her journal she was required to create.

Day 1

Well, I finally made it here. Love the room, love the house, love the weather, love the city, everything is so beautiful. So far I haven’t gotten to know anybody quite well yet, but they all seem pretty nice, maybe a little emotional. There’s already been a bit of drama surfacing in the first few hours between two guys, Adrian and Dorian I believe their names are? Well it should be a great couple of weeks, this house is just unbelievable. Anyways, tonight we’re going to some sort of party, at least I think it’s a party, but it sounds pretty fun, and I guess we’ll see how it turns out!


Danielle logged off the computer, grabbed her things, and headed back downstairs.

"Teddy! My man!" Agustos, one of the cooks in the bar, exclaimed when Teddy walked in from his life guard duty. He got off earlier than expected since Gregory arrived earlier, he dashed back to his uncle's bar "BLAZE" after he took a shower.

"The stock just arrived earlier and a couple of boxes of fine Tequila are still outside, you might want to bring them in." His uncle's head peered from his office when he heard Teddy's name being called.
"Yes Chief," He replied, calling the nickname he fondly uses for his Uncle- the only relative he has left.

Teddy seems like a laid back guy with his two jobs being a life guard and a bartender for BLAZE but in fact had saved a great part of his money so he could go back to school. After his short stint in the military, he decided to come back and not risk his life to pursue his dream.

Still without a shirt, he dropped his sling bag on the counter and went to the back to grab the remaining alcohol supply so he can start preparing before the customers arrive. Spring break meant more customers as well as more tips and more income and a wiped out body from all the work that needs to be done.

He wore his shirt before flipping the "OPEN" sign by the entry way as the bystanders came in one by one. A couple of bouncers stood seriously by the entrance as they checked the customer's belongings for weapons or illegal stuff. His uncle never tolerated drug use and violence in the bar.

After he has opened and re-stacked the shelves, he started mixing a few drinks for the early birds and watched as the people started coming in. A few women had already asked for his name and number, good thing Gregory had earlier given him strips of paper with Teddy's name and Gregory's number. It wasn't like he never flirted with the customers but Spring Break usually just brings him one night stands and a hell lot of hate text messages if he never returned their calls after that.

"Hi hottie, how about a blowjob?" A girl battered her eyelashes at him and handed him a few bills.

"Right away," Understanding the pun and the real meaning of what she meant, he handed her the drink she ordered and winking at her. She's pretty but not entirely his type.

After the girl who called herself Danielle introduced herself, Read smiled and introduced herself and Dixie. And shortly after, a voice was heard from the intercom about a party, something like a welcoming celebration. She carried Dixie into her arms looked at her dog and saw a tired look into her eyes, well she might as well enjoy herself while she's here.

Reader strolled into the house and looked for her assigned room. When she finally found it, she let Dixie free and sniff around while she used her key. Inside, her requests were specifically made just the way she likes it. Dixie quickly jumped into her bed, walked in a circle, scratched the covers to make her mark and curled up. Her luggage were already inside her room while it's contents were already lined in the walk in closet, Dixie's things arranged at the corner she requested for her pal and nothing missing. Looks like she's going to like it here all along. No stressful parents for a few weeks.

She removed her clothes, not bothering to close the curtains or anything. Walked in the closet in her birthday suit and eyed the clothes she brought, finally deciding in a spring break party stunner, a pair of shoes black earrings, a heart shaped pendant, a whirl of feathers for a ring and a clutch sling bag. Hoping she isn't overly dressed, she decided to take a shower and lathered her body with the shower gel she requested. The hint of lemon and cotton relaxed her as she used the loofah to clean her body. The fabulous scenery captured just outside of her bathroom window was equally stunning like the one in her bedroom.

She rinsed her body, and grabbed the cotton bathrobe as she stepped out of the shower. She did her usual after shower or bath ritual and dressed up. Before applying lip balm and a little bit of eyeshadow, she gathered her loose hair and formed it into a french bun.

http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=43734162

After checking her reflection one last time, she grabbed her phone and the credit card they were given and tapped a few things into her journal.

Day 1

Somehow the place looks relaxing but so drama has started to sizzle. I barely know anyone and I've only known a single name besides the butler and the driver who fetched me from the airport. Danielle, if I'm quite right earned Dixie's wagging tail but as of this moment I'm gonna just let my guards down a little bit- for the sake of knowing who to trust and not.

The view from my room is exquisite, maybe the best around the house. I wonder how's the kitchen. I'm hungry hope they have something to snack on before everyone heads off to celebrate.

Dixie's exhausted and all curled up in my bed. She gets to enjoy the soft covers before I did. It looks like she's going to love it here.

Will update soon.


-----------------------

She swung open one of the huge refrigerator door in the kitchen to look for something to snack on. No one has shown up just yet so maybe nursing her grumbling tummy will help her while she wait for them. She has left Dixie sleeping in her room and prepared her bowl with dog food and water and brought out some toys she can play with while she's out with the others. She also asked Phelix if he can take her dog out for a walk if in case Dixie gets bored and started barking in her room.

It was packed with fruits, drinks, and a few other items but Read decided on an apple and some pre sliced celery and carrot sticks as she grabbed a jar of peanut butter and placed everything on the kitchen counter. Soon she was munching away while she waited.

A party on the first night? A smile crept across Matt's face and he looked at the clock. If he was to get ready, he better start now. Never had he been one to take a long time in front of the mirror, but he wanted to make a good impression. As he raised an eyebrow at the voice that came from the speakers, barely visible around the house, Matt shrugged and turned around. "Fuck... I'm down," he mumbled. The people who passed him by recieved a smile from him. The latest member of their little gathering here had been a girl.. with a dog. If he had a dog, he probably would have made someone look after it, even if he loved it to death. He wouldn't have brought it here.
He shrugged again and thought nothing more of it, that was her problem and not his to deal with. She seemed interesting enough though.

He caught a glimpse of the girl who had introduced herself as Danielle, when he followed her up the stairs. He turned right when he came up though, as she went straight ahead. Maybe that was good? He didn't want her to get the impression that he was following her. Matt went down the hall and crossed a small walkway of glass, suspended between two buildings. Matt's and the main house. He stopped in the middle of it and turned, looking out over the beach. The sun hit him in the face and lit his tall muscular figure up. "Wauw.." he said and made googly eyes. "This is amazing." Matt looked back towards the end of the hall he'd just come from when he heard someone there.
The decision to turn and walk into his room tugged at him though, and Matt slid his keycard through the slot and entered. The awe overwhelmed him once again even though he had seen the room earlier.
He undressed where he was standing and wrapped a towel around him, looking in the mirror quickly. He breathed deeply as he looked over his body. He had forgotten all the scars he had. Some of them from his childhood, playing with all his siblings. That reminded him of his brother James and Matt quickly thought of something else. Some of the scars were from a crash he been in, on a motorbike. It covered his shoulderblade and ended on his left shoulder. The tall man shook his head, wrinkled his eyebrows and entered the bathroom. He turned on the water and stepped inside.

Window opened, wrapped in a towel and with soaked hair, Matt stepped out of the bathroom and put on boxers. Then he opened the wardrobe and thought for a moment. He opted for a pair of dark jeans, a white t-shirt with a picture of a silver skull engulfed in flames along with several other things on it, and black converse. He dried his hair and did that as well, so that he looked acceptable. For some reason, his hair didn't settle until and hour after showering. Matt sprayed some deodorant on and did the last few things, and headed for the door. "Crap.." he said and spun around, remembering that he had to write something in his journal.

Day 1
This place is fucking awesome. Whatever we need seems to be here, and if it isn't I'm sure they'll acquire it somehow. There's already been a little drama. Two guys - who've apparently been romantically involved- and they didn't exactly get off on the right foot. Other than that, people seem very friendly here. I'm sure there's more under the surface than what they show though. One of the guys from the drama, Adrian, decided to throw a party tonight. Fuck.. I'm down.


Then he exited his room and walked down the hallway. The sun stood a little lower on the sky now, a nice warming orangy kind of glow. As he entered the kitchen, he heard someone down there.
"Hi," he said and nodded at the beautiful brunette who sat at the table. She had the most stunning eyes, and Matt had trouble to keep from staring. He heard his stomach rumble as he took the last step down the stairs, his foot hitting the floor with a heavy thump, and put a hand on it. "Oooh, is there anything good in here?" he said and walked past her, towards the fridge. Matt opened it and looked inside, trying to decide what to eat. "Oh.. I'm Matt" he said and leaned back to look at her.

After eating the sandwich he had made, Dorián made his way up to his room. He waved and said hey to everyone, but it wasn’t anything long winded or drawn out. He figured he’d get to know them in time, and eventually exchange cell numbers, but right now he had to get his gear together. This night would surely be a night to remember. The first night in a new place while on spring break was just what the doctor ordered, the only thing that bothered him was that Adrian was here. He’d just have to make the most of it somehow. Yes, the feelings he once had for Adrian came rushing back the moment he saw him, but he couldn’t afford to get hurt again. The last time was so much that it almost buried him, but he couldn’t risk it this time around. Sighing, he walked into his room and sat on the bed. He opened the computer and began typing.

“Day 1,

Well, so far so good. I met a new guy; his name is Derrick, the limo driver. Yes, I know, it is rather odd of me to even be interested in him considering he’s not really my type, but I came out here to have fun and I’m going to do just that. I found out that I’ll be rooming with Adrian Sanchez, my ex-boyfriend. Though I hate to admit it, I still love him, and wish he’d hold me and caress me while I sleep, but I can’t go down that road with him again. Something about him has changed though; I guess I’ll see what happens. I’ve met all of the roommates, and they all seem pretty ‘lax if you ask me, but I’m sure everyone’s personalities will bloom as time goes on. Till then, this is my day one entry and I’m out. Party hardy let’s all get wasted.  I’ll see what tonight brings…….

Sincerely,
Dorián Saunders
xoxo”

Dorián smiled and saved the file, and closed the laptop. He proceeded into the full size bathroom and took a shower. As he showered, Adrian knocked onto his room door.

“IT’S OPEN!”

Adrian walked in slowly opening the door as he peered in. Seeing that Dorián was in the shower brought back many steamy memories and made him smile. Damn, he had forgotten how much he missed him and how much he loved him. All those old feelings started rushing back. He was a changed man, and he wanted to show Dorián that he was, but how could he when Dorián didn’t want to give him the time of day? He decided to sit at the computer desk and wait for Dorián to come out. He had already taken a shower and decided he’d do his journal entry when he got back from the party. He was wearing a black tank top covered by a silk button up shirt that was transparent and white. He had on black skinny jeans, the rim of which hung just low enough to expose the top of his underwear. His feet were comforted by a pair of white Nike shoes. He sat in the computer chair, legs crossed at the ankles as he looked around the room from that viewpoint. As he scanned the room, his eyes locked on a photograph that sat on the nightstand beside Dorián’s bed. It was a picture of him and Dorián smiling. They were so close, their faces pressed against one another’s. The picture represented the happy times in their relationship. If memory served, Adrian had given Dorián that picture a week before they broke up. How on earth did the relationship change so much in such little time?

He looked away from the picture, the door to the bathroom opening suddenly. Dorián walked out of the bathroom very much nude. He was drying his hair with a towel and when he caught sight of Adrian, he smirked.

“What are you doing in here Adrian?”

“Damn baby, could you put some clothes on please? It’s hard to concentrate with you like that,” Adrian replied, a sexual gleam in his eyes.

“You didn’t answer my question. What are you doing in here?” Dorián asked again as he pulled on a pair of Calvin Klein underwear as well as a pair of black skinny jeans. He sat on the bed and began to lotion his body as if often did after allowing the natural air in his room to caress his body.

Adrian couldn’t take his eyes off of Dorián. After a few moments of silence, Dorián looked up at Adrian with a waiting stare and Adrian began to speak.

“I-I wanted to come up here and apologize for earlier and for everything that has happened between us. Look, I know what happened between us wasn’t right, and I’m sorry. I know I broke your heart and I’m sorry, but I realize that no matter how many times I apologize, it won’t make up for the things I did. I’m sorry I cheated; I just got so tired of you accusing me of doing it. I understand that you wanted me to be the perfect boyfriend, but I’m not perfect Dorián. I love you with all my heart, but I need to know right now, do you still have feelings for me?”

Dorián looked at Adrian with tears in his eyes. That was the apology he had waited for ever since their break up. He sighed and stood to his feet, walking slowly over to Adrian before leaning forward and placing a soft passionate kiss onto Adrian’s lips. The two kissed for a moment before Dorián broke it.

“Adrian, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have accused you so much, but you were, you are, the perfect boyfriend to me. I wish like hell that we could be together, but I just don’t want to open up the same wound again. I know you’ve changed, but I need time to assess things. Can we be friends? I would love it if we could be friends, if only for a moment in time,” Dorián said as he sat on the awaiting knee of Adrian.

Adrian thought about it for a moment. They did have some inner problems to work out, and he wasn’t sure if he would be able to be fully committed to Dorián with his mind so preoccupied with bettering himself. Still, Dorián was his, and he’d fight for his love again. He’d work to show Dorián that he was a changed man and that he truly wanted to try again. He respected Dorián’s wishes and would be his friend, for now. Being friends meant a lot, and he hoped Dorián understood this.

“Yea, that’s cool, but…..” Adrian leaned forward and connected his lips with Dorián’s.

A moan escaped Dorián’s throat as he and Adrian kissed. Dorián once again broke the kiss and allowed his forehead to touch Adrian’s. A slight moan came from Dorián as he simply relished the moment.

“I love you,” Adrian said softly, “I’ll be downstairs waiting.”

“I-I-I love you too Adrian,” Dorián replied as he stood up and watched Adrian leave out of the room.

After such a touching display, how could he go through with the party? He’d have to change the plans at the last minute. As quickly as he could, he called Derrick and canceled. At first Derrick wanted to know why and was a little pissed off, but after Dorián explained that everything, Derrick respected Dorián wishes and informed him that if he wanted to hang out some time, he’d be available. Dorián sighed after the phone call ended and quickly pressed the intercom button on the wall next to the light switch.

“Change of plans everyone. Instead of a party, we are going club hopping. Please have your IDs ready and your outfits right. I hope everyone can make it out tonight, and I hope everyone is ready to have fun. Those under twenty-one, well, let’s just say you only live once. Use those wiles to get what you want. The limo is leaving at 9, and its 8:30 pm. That means we have thirty minutes. I made a few calls, and the limo driver is going to take us to the most popular clubs in town, catering to all walks of life. From what I’ve been told, music ranges from Pop to Hip Hop and some Rap thrown in. Clubs around here usually close around 1 or 2 AM. I hope everyone has a wide range of tastes.”

Dorián released the button and smiled. He was ready to get out of the house and have an amazing time. Dancing, drinking, karaoke, and whatever else Miami Florida had to throw at him. He looked out his bedroom window, wondering what the rest of spring break had in store for him. Adrian walked downstairs. Those who he passed along the way, he smiled and acknowledged. This night would determine who he’d hang with and who he’d avoid. He was thankful that he didn’t waste time in the bathroom. Once in, he did what he needed to do and made sure everything was right before walking out. Dorián was the same way. Everything was in place before he and Adrian walked out. Adrian sat down in the living area adjacent to the door and waited on everyone to gather. Dorián continued to get dressed. He grabbed his knee high boots and his FLAM BOY shirt. After a second check in the mirror, and after making sure that his hair was to his desire, he proceeded downstairs and joined Adrian in the living area, his miniature backpack strapped to him. He smiled and sat next to Adrian.

“Let me guess, when you get back you’re going for a night swim? Am I right?” Dorián asked as he sat across from Adrian.

“You know me too well babe,” Adrian replied, “Thirty minutes till show time I guess.”

“That much is certain,” Dorián replied with a slight wink as the two waited for the others.

Re: A Spring Break to Remember (IC-Mature)

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Jaybt9 on Tue Feb 14, 2012 3:54 pm

“About fuckin’ time I got here.”

This thought arose from a man, with skin as yellow as the inside of a cake, standing out from the busy crowd, exiting through the doors of the airport with a cart of suitcases in a collaborative disarray of colors. Shades of Blue and Brown showed the most. Since the weather in Florida was warm, the man's earthly-colored tank top and khaki shorts were well adjusted.

Swerving around the other people displayed his impatience. He had been on two planes and desperately wanted to rest his feet. He searched for a sign or calling that could make himself noticeable. Finally something bright and aggressive caught his eye. The sight of his name written in black marker on a white poster board, held up high for the world to see. The man’s eyebrows raised in satisfaction from who was holding the sign?

In front of him was a woman in front of a light blue jeep wrangler with skin like an espresso, wearing a yellow crop top and dark blue daisy dukes. Her eyes were covered by dark sunglasses, while her hair, styled in a high ponytail, swooped down her shoulder in one curl. While this woman was shorter than him, he can admit that her body, not hidden under her loose top, was admirable.

The woman caught sight of the indie-attired man walking closer to her. Lowering the sign, she took several steps towards him, stopping face-to-face, and gazing to his gray eyes and getting a whiff of Bod body spray on his top.

“Are you Jameel?” the woman asked once she lowered her sunglasses to reveal her deep sienna eyes. Her words, accentuated in an island flare, interrupted the man’s daydream about her and his fantasies.

“Yeah”, Jameel responded, “that’s what my ID says.”

“Phew! What a relief. You aren't the first guy to walk up to me and say they were you.”

“Why the fu...”

“Don't ask.”

The woman raised her sunglasses again and hurried towards the back of the jeep, opening the trunk so Jameel could empty the cart. Her suitcases, all in light blue, were already in the jeep, but since she knew that she would be having another passenger, she had to keep the trunk cleared.

“I’m Kat, by the way.” the woman introduced with a light smile, “I’m the one you talked to on the phone the other day.”

“So you are Kat, huh?”

At that moment, Jameel struck a wicked grin to himself. This was the same Kat staying at the mansion with him.

“I hope you ain't taking me to some rundown apartment.” Jameel stated.

Kat giggled from Jameel’s sense of genuineness, or “realness” as she would say.

“No, the mansion is real.” Kat replied as she picked up a small brown bag of Jameel’s and tossed it over the trunk into to the back seat above her portion. “Large from what I've seen.”

“You don't know the nearest place to get some....weed do you?”

Marijuana or not, it was glad that he didn’t say cigarettes as Kat hated cigarettes.

“You are awfully straightforward.” Kat noted, while Jameel picked up a large suitcase with both hands and placed it in the trunk, making the jeep rattle by the strong impact.

“Well this is Florida isn’t it?” Jameel questioned, “I know they got some Cuban shit around here.”

“Well, I don’t see the connection with Cuba and Jamaica, but if you want marijuana, I’m the last one to get that. Now alcohol, I can arrange that, but I heard there will already be alcohol in the mansion.”

“Oh forreal?” Jameel further questioned.

“That's right. No need to bring your ID for buying alcohol.”

“It wouldn't make a difference. I'm not 21 yet.” Jameel admitted to Kat, while continuing to pack three more of his bags into the trunk.

“And you are sitting here asking for weed?” Kat asked before slowly shaking her head at him. A little let down that Jameel was older than her, especially by the sight of his muscular arms as he picked up his bags, but he was only one out of few men that could possibly be in the mansion.

After Jameel finished with his bags, Kat closed the trunk door and skipped towards the driver side of the jeep, waiting for Jameel, who just left the cart in the front of the airport. A little rude, but even Kat was impatient to see what the mansion looked like. By the few drips of sweat on his forehead from the hot weather, he was a little exhausted too.

Kat watched as Jameel steadily walked to the passenger side. Even Kat admired how he walked with his shoulders relaxed, but alternating on his sides, while his elbows switched forwards, as well as his somewhat arched back. Coming from the Virgin Island, she figured that’s how people from a different state strutted.

Once he reached the car door, Kat turned on the ignition, and instantly the slow vibes of Beyonce played loudly for the airport to see.

“Let’s get out of here.” Kat stated before putting on her seatbelt, unlike Jameel, before driving off, on their way to the mansion.

The limo rolled up in the parking lot of a club with bright fluorescent lights. Adrian looked up and smiled. They had made it to the club. It was an interesting club, people of all walks of life were known to migrate there and party. Adrian and Dorián exited the limo and waited for the others. Music could be heard filtering out of the club. Adrian looked at Dorián and smiled. He knew this was one of Dorián's favorite songs. He waited until everyone had exited the limo and watched as the limo drove off. The driver had directions to come back in about two and a half hours. As he looked at everyone in the group, Dorián smiled.

"Alright everyone, let's have a blast," Dorián stated as he and Adrian made their way into the club.

After paying and showing their IDs, those who were 21 and over got a wrist band while those under 21 got a black fluorescent X on their right hand. The music was even louder inside the club as they walked in.
