|Trademarks|
His voice
Wearing all black pretty consistently
Wearing make-up


|Appearance |
Eye color
Kaige's eyes are often viewed as a kind of gray-blue color, but sometimes they will seem to take on a more lighter blue color with a very slightly green hue.
Hair color
Naturally his hair is a very dark brown, and was often mistaken for black before he started dying it. His sister taught him how to tease it up, and so that's how he wears it a lot of the time. He is often asked if it's real, and is admittedly kind of proud to say it is.

He has about an average body type, not skinny and not overweight at all either, and the man stand's at about 5'10. The muscles he has are slightly visible, but not obnoxiously so.
Distinct Markings

|Strengths|
⚔ He's adventurous, and he'll try anything once without any real far of possible consequences. There's been once or twice where the end result was bad, but it hadn't hurt his spirit any.
⚔ He's fairly optimistic, and thinks to such, he can be good at talking people through things. Also, he's good at giving good advice..or he'd like to think he is anyway.

☠ Milo, he's seen him through some bad times and doesn't like seeing him down. And so in an effort to kind of protect him, he does his best to keep him out of trouble.






❝A Little More Personal❞



Image
|Personality|
In general Kaige is pretty cool. He can make friends quite easily, and is a pretty social person. He usually likes going out and doing at least something with someone, and especially likes going to parties and getting to drink and meet people and everything else that goes along with it. So naturally the recently acquired fame sits pretty well with him. He's got to make tons of new acquaintances in either fans, or other people that are much higher up, and he is quite happy about it. His close friends though, his band, are where his priories are however and they're usually who he tries to hang out with the most. Because they've been friends for the longest time, and they all get on pretty well and he's always just happy with them.

Kaige is usually very nice, and understanding, and just a good person all around, but there are admittedly some times when he's not nice at all. He tends to get more upset by something that happens to one of his friends (he's gotten into quite a few fights about Milo) than something that might happen to him, but that doesn't mean at all that he can ignore comments and such easily. Growing up with his brother trying to antagonize him all the time has given him a bit of a temper when it comes to certain things, which he wouldn't much like to admit. Kaige is much better at getting really angry and physically fighting then verbally fighting. Sometimes, he feels really good after getting into one, but others he ends up feeling terrible either immediately or sometimes later on after he's gotten to thinking about it. He never brings himself to apologize though.

He sometimes will swear that he bi-polar, because one day he might be incredibly happy and excited and just good all around, and the next he feels like absolute shit and doesn't want to do anything but sleep because he's convinced nothing will be able to cheer him up and he's meant to be sad. Those days are usually the only ones when the man wants to be alone, doesn't want to talk to anyone, see anyone.. But unless he gets really unlucky, those days only last about two of them consecutively and then he'll be pretty much back to normal.

He wears quite a bit of make-up usually for concerts, since he knows how to put it on pretty well (because his sister taught him how), but not all the time. Though he does still wear at least a little bit normally.



|History|
Lukas was two years old when Kaige was born, and at the time their father brought in quite a bit of money. The boy's had almost anything they could want or need, and at the time everyone was very happy. The older of the siblings was always wanting to hold his baby brother, and play with him, and try to feed him.. And their parents always had attention to give to them.

That lasted until he was about four, and his father lost his job. Granted, they still were able to get quite a bit of attention, but their parents didn't seem as happy anymore. They didn't get to go places all the time or get new things all the time either, and most of the time the boys just had to find things to play with one another. The only things was Lukas was obviously still older than the other and at the age wanted to play much rougher with his brother than he could handle. Most 'games' ended with the younger in tears and the older boy in trouble. Four was also the age at which Kaige's sister Anabelle was born. And for a while (actually quite a few years) the boy didn't like his sister one bit. She stole almost all of the attention from him, and to him it seemed like his parents didn't are anymore.

By the time that his brother was thirteen and had friends their dad was making a decent amount of money again. Lukas had friends and was able to go places with them quite often. Kaige of course always wanted to go, and his brother never wanted him to come. The only times he ever really got to were when his mom made the other boy take him along. So naturally, that was the age that he decided not to like his brother, and to like his sister instead. Because she would lay with him, and was nice to him all the time. Since then, the younger siblings stayed close and became more of friends than Kaige and Lukas were.

When both boys were in high school however, Lukas and a couple of his better friends hung out quite a bit with Kaige and his friends, setting the two onto a bit better terms. His brother was never as mean to him anymore, and that meant a lot. The two would even go to parties and such together, where of course the two learned the joys of underage drinking. It was at a party, thanks to his brother's friends, was where he first tried smoking, and it took a few times of him doing it again after that for him to acquire his nicotine addiction.

After meeting Milo he calmed down a bit, and didn't go to every single party that he heard about. Mostly because he brought the other boy alone once or twice and ended up feeling really bad later after finding out that he hadn't really liked being there. He didn't stop completely, only went less, when Kaige wasn't around. He was around quite a bit admittedly, because the other had no siblings or anything and since they were pretty much best friends it was fun to get to hang out all the time. Finding out that the other was a vampire was..scary at first, but after being reassured about being eaten by him or something. He hardly ever worried about it.

When he found about what had happened between Milo and his brother, he was beyond pissed. After his friend had left, the two boys got into a huge argument and eventually fight, which, Kaige ended up winning surprisingly. He was admittedly a little surprised when the boy would still want to come over almost all the time, but it was his own idea to start going to the basement. They'd gone down there before, but never so often. Soon enough that was the place to be. But Kaige honesty never thought that they'd ever start a band down there..especially a successful one.

Red, Yellow, and Blue||Born Ruffians


If I started my own country
For the flag, what colours would I use?
Such a myriad to choose from
I would pick red, yellow and blue

Red, for the blood I'd spill to own it
Yellow, for the sun which shines my way
And although I am leader of this country
Blue, because I'd still have sad days



To Love Interest


Beneath Your Beautiful||Labrinth


You tell all the boys "No"
Makes you feel good, yeah.
I know you're out of my league
But that won't scare me away, oh, no

You've carried on so long,
You couldn't stop if you tried it.
You've built your wall so high
That no one could climb it,
But I'm gonna try.

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, girl, take it off now, girl
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight?

You let all the girls go
Makes you feel good, don't it?
Behind your Broadway show
I heard a boy say, "Please, don't hurt me"

You've carried on so long
You couldn't stop if you tried it.
You've built your wall so high
That no one could climb it.
But I'm gonna try

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, boy, take it off now, boy
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight, oh, tonight?

See beneath, see beneath,
I...
Tonight
I...

I'm gonna climb on top your ivory tower
I'll hold your hand and then we'll jump right out
We'll be falling, falling but that's OK
'Cause I'll be right here
I just wanna know

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, girl, take it off now, girl (take it off now, boy,take it off now, boy)
'Cause I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight, oh, oh, oh, tonight?
See beneath your beautiful, oh, tonight.
We ain't perfect, we ain't perfect, no.
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight?

Kaige Hardy's Story

Character Portrait: Milo Reed Character Portrait: Kaige Hardy

0.00 INK

It was getting late, probably around nine o'clock, and the members of Dead by Default were finishing up getting everything onto one of the two buses in the lot. They had everything they needed loaded, instruments, amplifiers and whatnot, and now were able to bring their suitcases up onto their designated bus and pick out the bunks they wanted. This wasn't because they hadn't gotten a bus yet, because they definitely had, this was just a bigger one that would better accommodate them for the year. Which, they all appreciated. Kaige had made sure he, his stuff (and Milo's stuff), was at the front of the line to get on (with only a little bit of pushing involved). The man put his suitcase on a top bunk that was the furthest back and put Milo's on the bunk below it.

The younger had tried to move it to another upper bunk instead, but after a playful spat with the singer, he gave in. "Fine," he started with a little sigh, "just be glad that I like you so much." Milo said somewhat teasingly before he turned around and made his way back down the little hallway and then off of the bus again. They weren't leaving for a little while longer still, and the boy wanted to be outside for as long as he could until then. He was alone at first for a while, leaned up against the side of the vehicle near the door and kind of just listening to everyone on the inside talk, putting in comments when he thought was necessary or when someone addressed him.

It wasn't long before Kaige was with him though and he didn't take long to cuddle up into the other's side, sighing contentedly. "You're not hungry are you?" the singer questioned quietly so that anyone who didn't need to hear, didn't. The other boy shook his head as a reply before he spoke, "No, I'm fine." he assured, offering just a little smile as a kind of form of extra convincing. "Well, if you get hungry just let me know." Kaige informed and the other nodded this time and held back a comment about how the other was acting like his dad, fussing over him like that. He was glad for it though. Especially since he knew that the man really didn't have to let him feed on him, which, he knew was the other was going to do since he did it often. Some times were just slightly involuntary of course.

They changed the subject after that, talking about the tour instead. They were both excited, but everyone was, because they hadn't done anything this big yet. They might be a little more excited if they were getting to do this alone of course, but they took what they were given without much protest to the people who gave them the opportunity. Amongst themselves though, it was a bit of a different story.

"Ten more minutes." the pair was informed before too long. They both agreed though that they probably would be here for longer than that.

Tristan never like leaving his mom and sister alone for long periods of time he always worried whether or not they’d be okay. He skyped them once a week when he was away and had a bank account set up for them, though his mother hated using his money. He hugged his mom and kissed the top of his little sisters head, he wasn’t good with good byes. He headed out to the SUV that was parked out front waiting to take him to where the tour busses were waiting and where he’d have to see the members of Dead by Default.

The ride wasn’t too bad and he’d hopped he wouldn’t be the first of his band members there, he hoped Cora would be there, then again if she was there with no back up, there be no one to control her if she got out of hand. He smirked at the thought of her beating up the ass hole of a lead singer.

He stepped out of the SUV once they pulled into the parking lot and thankfully he’d arrived at the same time as Lindsey their drummer, the only innocent one in the band. He glanced between the two tour busses, watching as their busses was still being loaded with their equipment.

“Careful with that ass hole!” he yelled at one of the guys “That’s worth more than you!” he called out before jogging over to the guys, ripping the guitar case from his hands. “Why the fuck are you touching my shit.” He said irritated.

“Down boy.” Lindsey laughed as she came up behind him “Sorry, he’s tends to over react when it comes to his children.” She teased referring to his guitars. “So…what do you say we go introduce ourselves to the others.” She said trying to calm him down.

He rolled his eyes, as he lend against the bus lighting a cigarette and taking a long drag. As he glanced to see another car pulling up already knowing it was Cora.

“Negative. They want to meet me, they can come to me.” He smirked “Plus, as little contact as possible is what I’m going for.” He said with a shrug. “Princess is here.” He said gesturing to the car that was pulling up as he took another drag from his cigarette.



Coralline Mercer

Coralline took a breath as she finished playing the piano, she’d locked herself in her apartment for three days straight, no one, not even Tristan had seen her. It was something she did to prepare herself for tour, she’d always done it as long as she could remember.

“You ready Cora?” her manager asked and she simply nodded as she headed out to the car.

She was an amazing actress, even when she was in a bad mood she wore a smile and pretending everything was alright. She wasn’t looking forward to touring with her bands biggest rival, but she’d deal with it.

She stepped out of the SUV and glanced between the two tour busses. Before her eyes fell on Tristan and she smirked, able to tell by his mood, someone had messed with his guitars. She rolled her eyes as she walked toward the guitarist and the drummer of her band, before seeing their bass player step of the tour bus.

“The bus is dope.” He said excited, Justin was the most optimistic of the band, but also the most perverted. “Princess, you made it.” He smirked leaning in the door way of the bus.

Cora hated that her entire band, including Lindsey had adopted the nickname Princess, it was insulting yet she’d somehow gotten used to it over the years. She rolled her eyes sighing as she grabbed Tristan’s cigarette taking a drag off it herself before throwing it on the ground and blowing the smoke back in his face.

“How about we don’t smell like an ashtray when we introduce ourselves.” She smirked.

“There’s no way in hell I’m going over their” Tristan protested quickly.

“Then there’s no way in hell you’re getting a pay check.” She said glancing to the other band members. “Come on let’s say high and pretend to like them.” She said, hating the way it sounded knowing that both bands couldn’t stand each other.

It didn't take too long for all four of the boys to be outside, since the other two had gotten to explore the bus to a small extent and they were getting tired of trying to yell talk loudly back and forth between the bus walls. "What I was trying to ask, was if Milo was going to have to crawl into bed with me tonight." one of the other boys, Quinn, questioned only half-playfully. The boy who was still in Kaige's side let out a little giggle before he gave back an, "I wouldn't get your hopes up."

"That's right, because if he's sleeping with anyone, it's going to be me." Kaige assured the others somewhat cockily.

"Actually, I wouldn't get yours up either." Milo replied, earning himself a couple of chuckles.

The four of them kind of left that topic alone after that, as they kind of switched to stealing glances at the other band across the way. Not completely watching them because that would be weird, just looking over every once in a while to kind of see what was going on. It wasn't like they could just go over and see, ask, like they were good friends and actually knew one another. Because they weren't, and they didn't. Well, not really anyhow. "We can't just like, avoid them forever though." Milo informed his friends as they were making idle chatter about the others.

No one really really denied it other than a half-hearted, "I'd beg to differ." from Elliot, the final member to their group. But even he knew that the chances of that statement being true were about zero to none. Especially when they saw the other start towards them. "Please don't be a dick, Kay Kay." the bassist requested as he moved from Kaige a bit, so he was more standing close to the other and not attached to him.

The boy only received a hum back as what he could assume was probably a, 'we'll see.'

Cora led her band in the direction of the other band, Lindsey and Justin weren’t in total protest of the other band. Tristan however followed behind lazily in no big hurry as he lit himself yet another cigarette.

“Cora, try and control your temper.” Lindsey whispered, inter locking her arm with Corallines as if she was her little sister.

The members of Moonlit Massacre closing the space between them and the other band, finally they reached the four members of Dead by Default. Tristan swiftly moved on the other side of Cora, not trying to hide how protective he was of her and Cora simply rolled her eyes, before glancing to one of the members who seemed younger than the rest and she almost instantly knew he was like her and she smirked. She could tell he was a very young Vamp.

Tristan rolled his eyes, he had done his research on the band and the lead singer had a reputation for being a bit of a dick, not the Cora couldn’t handle herself but he felt the need to stare him down, in an attempt to intimidate him.

“Coralline, but you can call me Cora.” She said with a small smile though not offering her hand as her eyes smoothly traveled from the young vampire to the lead singer. “But I’m sure you already knew that.” She offered a wicked smirk and Lindsey elbowed her. “This is Lindsey our drummer and Justin out Bas player.” She said taking the liberty of introducing her band purposely skipping Tristan.

Tristan rolled his eyes knowing that Cora skipped him on purpose so that he would have to introduce himself. He glanced from the lead singer to the others, his eyes falling on Milo’s longer than the rest giving him a small smirk as he took a drag from his cigarette, taking his time.

“They call me The Big Bad Wolf.” He smirked, he knew it wasn’t the introduction Cora had been hopping for but he didn’t really care. “And just for the record, your music sucks.” He laughed at himself.

Coralline glanced to him, glaring at him for a moment and he simply shrugged as if he’d done nothing wrong.

“Sorry I apologize he was dropped on his head.” She said calmly, causing Lindsey and Justin to laugh, Tristan rolled his eyes, crossing his arms in front of him irritated.

The boys hardly took their gazes from the other band, especially when they were standing there in front of them. Milo's attention was on was on the girl, the other vampire, for a long while. It was a somewhat pleasant surprise for him, if he was completely honest. He tried not to stare for too very long though, and instead looked up at Kaige who had own gaze set back on the man across from him. He already hadn't liked him, but he certainly wasn't helping any.

Cora speaking soon caught his attention instead though, and he gave back a soft scoff at her second little comment. It wasn't something he chose to be any more upset about further than that, however. He looked at the second pair that she introduced then before he found himself looking at the man once again, waiting to see what kind of introduction he might have.

Milo too was looking at the man, and when his gaze was returned he somewhat unconsciously and nervously bit his lip, quickly looking down a few moments later. That however only lasted for a few very short seconds before the man in question started speaking, and he couldn't help but look back to him again. He felt the man beside him tense as soon as that music comment came, and he gave a quick warning of, "Kaige." before he could say something back, or try to hit him or something. He was able to reduce the other's response to a mere growl.

"Oh was he now?" Kaige replied, glancing back to Cora, "Makes sense." he added with a very slightly cocky smile on his lips.

There was a short period of silence before the man cleared his throat and looked over at his friends. "That's Quinn, and Elliot, and Milo." he introduced, pointing to the first two but putting his arm around the waist of the boy at his side. Not necessarily in a possessive manner, but he wouldn't be too disappointed if it came off that way.

"I'm Kaige, but, I'm sure you already knew that." the man finally finished, offering out a smirk that was mainly directed to Cora.

"Oh was he now?" Cora kept her expression calm and collected "Makes sense." Tristan scoffed at everyone’s making fun of him, but he chose to pretend he didn’t care as he finished off the last of his cigarette.

The members of MM were quite as the leader of the other band introduced his members, a silence fell between the two bands for a brief moment, not an awkward one, oddly enough they weren’t awkward, more trying to get a feel for each other. Before Kaige grabbed the Vampire, wrapping an arm around his waist causing Cora to raise a brow and Tristan to scoff.

"I'm Kaige, but, I'm sure you already knew that." the leader of the band stated, causing Cora to return a smirk.

“Oh your gay, that would explain the tight jeans and make up.” Tristan smirked “Cute.” He said sarcastically glancing to Milo “If you ever find yourself wanting to hook up with a real man…I can show you a good time” He winked

Cora rolled her eyes it was typical of Tristan to say stupid comments, he didn’t really know how to censor himself, but neither did Cora, but she typically had more manors when it came to meeting new people.

“Looks like their having problems with our bus.” The manager of Moonlit Massacre sighed rubbing the back of his neck. “Look like you’ll all be piling on one bus, just for tonight.” He sighed already knowing that wasn’t going to go over well.

“Fuck that…I’m not sharing a bus with them.” Tristan protested

“Yeah, I don’t share…anything well.” Cora shot there manger a look that said you better figure something out fast.

“I’m sorry but it’s short notice, Las Vegas isn’t that far from here, plus it’s not like any of you guys are going to sleep very much between now and the.” He said honestly.

Milo only offered back a kind of hum, which turned into a little squeak as Kaige tightened his grip on him just that much. The gay comment didn't bother him too much at all (because it wasn't like he hadn't been accused of that before), but if the other thought he was ever going to so much as touch Milo, he was sorely mistaken.

"Um, yeah, no, that's not happening." the singer protested as well, letting go of Milo so he could stubbornly fold his arms across his chest. The younger boy quickly glanced at everyone, and then back to the bus behind them. He for one didn't entirely mind having to share for this first little bit of a drive, to him it only meant there being a little bit less room for all of them.

"But..it's only for tonight," Milo repeated reasonably, causing Kaige (and the other two boys) to look down at him, "it can't be that bad." Perhaps he was being just the tiniest bit selfish by trying to change everyone's minds, or even just someone's mind, but he was ready to go. And if them going on the same bus was going to make that happen, then..

Kaige wanted to believe him, he really did, but the stubborn part of him that didn't want to like the other band too much or at all, wouldn't let him. "I don't know about that.." the man replied, slightly trailing off.

Milo let out a sigh then, not liking the other's answer at all. It wasn't like he was the bus master or something, anyway.. "Well it's not like we even have much choice if we want to get going, and I for one do."

Kaige was quiet again for a few long moments trying to ignore the look the boy was wearing, the one that he knew worked on the man every time. This time ended up being no different, and eventually the man offered a not too happy at all, "Whatever, fine. If there's absolutely nothing else that can be done, I guess we'll have to let them on."

The younger of the two couldn't help but smile then, resisting the urge he had to lean up and kiss the other because he didn't quite want to make it seem any more like they were together.

“Try and be civil, It’s one night TJ.” Cora said quietly so the others wouldn’t hear and he simply rolled his eyes as he followed the singer onto the bus.

Tristan sat down bored as he pulled out yet another cigarette and lit it taking a long drag, he grabbed Cora’s arm pulling her to sit on his lap playfully, yet still being protective of her. The two other band members making themselves comfortable, of course Lindsey getting along with everyone.

Cora rolled her eyes, she wasn’t exactly thrilled to be sitting on his lap, they already got enough publicity, no one knew that Tristan preferred guys to girls and the way Tristan and Cora interacted, everyone always thought there was more than just friends going on between the two, yet they’d never even kissed.

“Okay…so I’m not going to lie, I’ve totally read slash about you and Kaige.” Lindsey gushed like a total fan girl “It’s adorable! Way cuter than Justin and Tristan.” She smirked.

Cora rolled her eyes “Wow Lins, way to fan girl.” She laughed.

“Whatever, Justin wishes he could have this.” He laughed glancing to their bass player.

“No thanks Tristy, I’m all about the ladies.” He laughed “Not that I’m into it or anything but the Fanfics about you and Cora are pretty hot.” He smirked

“Perv.” Lindsey laughed

“I really love hearing about all this fan fiction.” Cora sighed “But, if you all don’t mind, I’m going to go hope up on one of the bunks and write for a while.” Cora smiled standing up, excusing herself from the group.

Tristan watched her stand “You feeling okay?” he asked, while they were on tour he always let her feed off of him and he wondered how long it’d been since she’d had anything to eat. She always pushed herself as far as she could without eating.

“Fine.” She smiled

Tristan sat back in his seat glancing to the younger vampire as the bus pulled out of the parking lot. He knew there was something off about him and the way Kaige protected him and kept him close was the same way Tristan was with Cora and it made him wonder, but he didn’t say anything.

“Guess we better start getting use to each other.” He sighed taking drag from his cigarette.

((OCC I'm kind of splinting them up, that way we can give the couples some alone time if you want lol!))

Kaige had followed Milo onto the bus, and sat on one of the bench couches beside the boy, not having wanted to leave him alone just yet still. The young vampire seemed to be quite happy talking with everyone, and eventually Kaige had joined in a lot more himself. Which of course made Milo even more happy.. so much so that the man had caught his eyes flash blue.

Eventually though, the man had gotten up under the pretense of wanting to get something from his suitcase. He hadn't been back sense. Milo didn't really mind though, he didn't need to be watched all the time after all, and he was just fine with being with everyone else. Until he needed to feed of course, then he'd have to go and find the other again and hide with him somewhere for a while.

The singer had been laying in the bunk that he had chosen with the curtain pulled open, occasionally glancing down the hall to where everyone else was.

He saw Cora coming in his direction eventually and offered out an, "What are you doing back here?" it wasn't in bad taste, it was almost kind of curious even. It seemed early for her to be going to sleep, but maybe she was. He didn't know and so obviously he had to ask.

Milo had turned so he could comfortably look out the window as they finally started moving, but only watched for a few long moments or so before he turned back round to look at the man who had just spoken instead.

"Oh, yeah. We are going to be together a while after all." the boy agreed, giving the other just a small smile.


((Yeah, I figured that should happen kind of soon ;p))

Tristan hated the fact that they were all on the same bus together, the only thing that was keeping him sane was his cigarettes, he needed a hit, but he wasn’t exactly going to whip out his drugs in front of everyone and go at it, so he’d have to wait until they got their bus back.

"Oh, yeah. We are going to be together a while after all." he heard the bass player say bringing him from his thoughts and he smirked.

“So let me guess…” he said looking over the younger one with his eyes as if trying to figure him out “Bass player?” he smirked as if he already knew he was right.

He wouldn’t admit it, but there was something about the kid that he was attracted to. He was definitely Tristan’s type and he’d known that the moment he’d seen them. The only thing keeping him from pursuing him was the fact that he belonged to his bands rival and when it came to things like that Tristan was always a little to headstrong for his own good.

“You guys got any beers on this damn bus?” he said glancing from Milo to the other two before back to Milo “There is no way in hell I’ll be able to sit around for the next six hours without a few beers.” He said honestly “Some cards would be nice too…anyone up for some poker?” he offered “Strip poker maybe?” he teased.

Cora could hear Tristan asking for a beer and she rolled her eyes, although she couldn’t argue the fact that some Vodka and a pack of cigarettes sounded really good. She had a pretty bad addiction to hard liquor and cigarettes, but she wasn’t about to let anyone know that.

"What are you doing back here?" she heard Kaige’s voice causing her to glance to the open bunk he was laying in and she smirked pausing for a moment.

“Well…I was coming back her to kill you.” She smirked, shrugging casually “But, seeing as you’ve caught me, I’ve failed at my attempt.” She teased “So instead I’ll have to settle for a notebook and a pen.” She said with a small smile.

Cora was always writing new songs or playing her piano when they were on tour, she was always the more quite of the members and keeping to herself most of the time. She pulled her hair to one side glancing away from him for a brief moment, before bringing her ice blue eyes back to his.

“Bored already?” she asked gesturing to the fact that had left the group “I hear their getting ready for a game of strip poker.” She said casually.

She sat down on the bunk underneath his making herself comfortable, grabbing a notebook and pen from the bag her manager had brought on the bus for her.

"How did you know?" Milo asked, smiling a bit more now, amused and just a little impressed. Just a little bit.

He looked away from the man toward the kitchen not kitchen beside them then. He knew that there had to be beer in there, since there usually was on their other bus, what with Kaige and the other two. Of course that meant that it probably belonged to the singer.. But he couldn't miss a few of them too much could he? Even if he knew who they had gone to?

The boy returned his attention to the man once again after a few moments, and kind of giggled when strip poker was suggested. "Not on your life," he answered, "and I'm not even sure if anyone brought cards with them.." he added, looking to Quinn and Elliot and receiving a consecutive 'I didn't' from the two of them.

Milo gave the other a kind of apologizing look before he spoke again, "But, I could still get you a beer?" the boy offered in such a way that was very close to being sweet.

Really the boy just wanted to be hospitable. And if he was completely honest, he found himself quite liking the man so far. Probably a little more than he should for having just met him.. But he just couldn't stop himself from finding just everything about the man kind of hot (for lack of a better word). And so naturally he wanted to be just a little closer to him. And he figured this was probably a good place to start.

Kaige couldn't help but laugh just a little bit at the answer he got back, because he's only half been expecting something playful like that. "Well if that's the case, I'm glad I didn't fall asleep or something." the man replied with a smile on his own lips.

He let out something of a sigh then when it was his turn to be questioned. "Maybe a little," he admitted, leaving out the 'I wouldn't be though if your band wasn't here' part, "But mostly I'm just hiding from everyone, so, I think I'll pass." Kaige added, not so much playfully or anything of the like. Because yeah, no, never in a million years.

He kind of watched Cora get into the bed below his then, almost tempted to tell her that that was Milo's bed and she'd have to find a different one. But, he would want him to try to be nice, so he decided he'd let her stay. Until of course the boy in question came and wanted to sleep there. Then she was getting kicked to a different bunk.

"So what are you doing with your notebook and pen?" Kaige questioned after a few quiet moments, not necessarily to keep bothering the other but to try and distract himself and pretend like he hadn't heard Milo offer that asshole in the other room one of his beers.

“You just look as though bass is your weapon of choice.” He shrugged

Tristan smirked, at the boys reaction to not wanting to play cards it was now more of a challenge to get him, than anything else. He glanced to the boy when he offered to get him a beer, he could really go for one.

“I don’t know is your girlfriend going to have a hissy fit is I take one?” he said with a wicked smirk.

Lindsey rolled her eyes slapping Tristan as a warning for him to be a little nicer, Tristan shot her an irritated look. Before sighing and grabbing his guitar. He pulled it out knowing the ride was going to be boring also knowing that no one really got much sleep the night before the big opening show of the tour.

He ran his fingers along the cords of the guitar, as if trying to figure out which of their songs he wanted to play. Finally deciding against playing one of their songs altogether and instead decided on more of a classic song and even without his amp, he rocked the guitar, his cover of Smooth Criminal was impressive to say the least.

He smirked when he watched Lindsey start to play air drums out of the corner of his eye. But, he continued to lay at least until Milo decided to bring him his beer and he had to admit he was showing off a little.

"So what are you doing with your notebook and pen?" she heard him ask from above her.

She debated on whether or not answer, she’d become distracted by Tristan’s playing and hummed along to his playing as if she’d jump in and start singing at any moment.

“Writing, unlike you I write all my own songs.” She teased

She tossed her pen and notebook away from her, Tristan had distracted her and there was no way in hell she’d be able to focus on writing with his playing not that it was that loud or bad, but simply because it made her want to sing along.

She stood up glancing down to at Tristan before looking back to Kaige with a playful smirk. “You know I’m willing to bet our fans would love it if we sang a song together” she said casually “Good publicity for the both of us.” She smirked “I mean just imagine the headlines, two feuding band do a duet.” She shrugged

She lend against the wall across from him, not that it was that far, considering the tight space of the hallway in the tour bus, she kept her eyes fixed on him. She’d knew it would be a good idea considering no one would expect it.

“I mean that is of course if you know how to play nice.” She said raising a brow.

"Probably," Milo answered with something of a giggle and a playful smile as he stood up from his spot on the couch before stepping over to the fridge. He could apologize for it later, if Kaige brought it up. Maybe even if he didn't, really.

The boy found himself glancing away from the beer bottle he'd sat up on the counter and towards the little living area again when he heard the guitar. He couldn't help the little smile that took his lips when he saw that was Tristan, but kind of scolded himself again mentally for letting him be so taken with the man already...

Although crawling into the man's lap and sinking his fangs into him and maybe also kissing him a bunch really sounded like a wonderful idea.

Before too very long, he had the bottle opened up and was heading back to where everyone else was, giving Tristan another near-sweet "Here you are." when he handed it over to him before he sat himself down again, almost immediately scooting closer to Elliot and kind of cuddling up to him since Kaige wasn't there and the man was closer to him than Quinn was.

Kaige offered out a humorless laugh when the other brought up writing songs. Because he totally wrote his own, she didn't even know. But he thought that that was a good enough way to express himself.

The man nodded his understanding and agreement when Cora suggested singing together then, and he smiled a little at the thought. "I can definitely play nice, if I want to. Aren't I right now?" he answered with a smile, moving himself so he was sat up a bit more and was closer to the edge of the bunk.

"Yeah, yeah, I think that would be a good idea." Kaige agreed then verbally, "Maybe you could even like, write a duet for us to sing. Because y'know I don't do that," he added with a smirk, "But yeah, we could surprise them with it, they'd like that even more I bet." the man finished fairly matter-of-factly.

And no, he totally wasn't getting excited over this whole little plan. Excited to sing with her. Or so that's what he'd make sure Coralline, and everyone else for that matter, thought. Except for he really was. If only for the fans.
