If there was a way for Olivia to avoid the stupid cameras and the overall idea of being filmed for an entire summer, she would have done it. She had been close, earlier in the morning, to simply slipping out of New York on a last minute flight to Florida. Aaliyah wanted to spend time with her family, anyway. It would have made sense if one of the girls went with her. It wouldn't have been sooooo much of a big deal if one of the girls going with Aaliyah happened to be Liv. However, she had signed a contract last night, Elliot would not let her walk out of it, and the cameramen were already filing in the middle of her photo shoot for Teen Vogue. Rolling her eyes, Olivia had had to suck it up, tossed her brother a small glare, and then concentrated on getting through the rest of the photo shoot. She didn't have time to focus on how much she hated her parents at the moment. The cameraman for the shoot was rearranging the girls and she had to make herself very comfortable on the floor with Deanna.

Once the photo shoot was over, Liv had to hurry up and get dressed. She honestly didn't even care what she had on, even though - to be quite honest - not caring about what she wore didn't mean her outfit wasn't going to be Instagram-worthy. Luckily for her, despite its location, New York City summers were almost as sweltering as Atlanta's and her shorts were very much welcome in the nearly oppressive air that surrounded them the second the siblings managed to get past fans and the paparazzi. Everyone else would be heading over to the Rockefeller family's penthouse in Manhattan for a brunch with their parents. It would give the director time to film all of them moving in temporarily to the spacious apartment, let them do something normal like having a five-star gourmet breakfast, and then discuss the plans for the evening. Such as the dinner party in lieu of a prominent New York socialite's engagement to a European dignitary. All trivial matters that Liv would have rather heard about from her large bedroom in California where she could sip on her peach sangria and munch on popcorn. Or be anywhere...that wasn't here.

"Will you stop pouting for five seconds, sis?" Elliot exclaimed, exasperated yet still teasing, after five minutes of them being alone in their town car. Olivia paused in scrolling through her instagram feed to glare at her brother. "Ok, screw you. Not exactly excited to be in front of a camera for the entirety of my summer, for your information." Elliot raised an eyebrow, eyed his sister's attire for a moment, before replying, "Really? I couldn't tell." If either sibling could kill each other, they would probably do it and save each other the misery of having to deal with being bombarded by cameras the second they exited the vehicle. It wasn't like Elliot himself was particularly excited about participating in the show. At the same time, who was it going to really hurt? Everyone practically knew all of their secrets, last he checked. And it wasn't like any of them weren't good at keeping secrets if they were serious enough that they would need to stay away from the probing eyes of the cameras. All they had to do was continue like none of it was real; like all of them were simply in a house together because their parents were insensitive assholes.

"I'm not about to argue with you. I'm dressed like any other person who dresses like my age in the summer. Don't even start with me, Javie," Liv stated sharply. Her brother always liked to act like she didn't know how to dress appropriately, especially now that she was older and actually could just ignore him. While Elliot himself was dressed like he was headed to a tea party in the middle Buckingham Palace's gardens, Liv was dressed like she was about to go hang out with friends. His look wasn't her own and she was not about to spend her summer being lectured every time she walked out of her closet. "I'm not starting anything, Liv. Just...don't let this get to you, ok? One summer. We don't even know if this will even get picked up for a second season. It's just remedial." He explained after a sigh and Liv didn't respond; she was focused on texting her faves. They were getting closer and closer to the Rockefeller's home anyway. Elliot pulled out his phone and did the same.

While all eight of the new starts of "Beyond the Lights" had signed their contracts, it seemed like none, or very few of them, were actually excited to be starting in the hyped up series. Michael wasn't really either, but he thought that he was the only one who actually had a good reason to resent the idea of being on the show right now. He knew that he was going to be forced to face how unfaithful he had been to Kate, and doing so while not being broadcasted on national television had clearly already been difficult enough for him. The idea of the reality show itself wasn't so bad, and he probably would have actually looked forward to it if Kate hadn't been a part of it as well. He knew that there was no way to spin what he had done as being right. There was no justification, no other "love at first sight" girl who had been a part of the affair, who he was still in love with to this day. It was just him being stupid and impulsive, and losing a girl who had truly loved him. He knew he was going to be made to look like an asshole, and he thought that he deserved that reaction from Kate, but not from the whole world. That was a kind of backlash that no one wanted to deal with.

He tried to reach out to Kate before the show started, and on multiple occasions, actually. The last time that she had actually spoken to him was the day after she initially found out about the cheating, and it was a screaming fit that followed the one from the night before, where she told him he had three hours to get all of his stuff out of her driveway. Even after that, though, he continued to try to call and text her, but after two weeks of being sent to her voicemail, it was clear that she wasn't going to budge. He knew that to a girl like Kate, who prized her dignity and image so much, cheating on her was the ultimate betrayal, and being completely cut off was expected. He thought she could have at least been mature enough to forgive him for the purpose of the show. Maybe it spoke to his selfishness, but he felt like it was unfair for her to continue to be mad at him to a point where it was going to affect his image on the show.

The fact that she wasn't going to budge had Mike staying away from New York for as long as possible. He had only flown into New York from California an hour ago, and between getting all of his luggage into a car headed for the Rockefeller penthouse and then getting one for himself, he knew that he was barely going to make it there by the time he was supposed to. He was never a fan of bunch, because it usually meant either missing breakfast or lunch in favor for the other, and he just wasn't that kind of guy. Why anyone would purposely skip out on the chance to eat baffled him, so even after eating his own breakfast, and then lunch at the airport, he had half the mind just to not show up at the Rockefeller's house. It wasn't like he was welcome there, and he knew he wouldn't be missing anything positive, anyway.

Luciana had sensed that Michael was resistant to the idea of the show the day before. At first, he had totally been on board with it. At the time that the show was pitched to everyone, he and Kate were still and healthy couple, and her brother had really seemed on board with the idea. He was the time of guy who lived off of attention, and she associated his success as a model with that ego, so it made sense that he would love some extra, paid camera time. She thought that even with his scandal with Kate, Michael would get over it and still be into the idea of being on television, but just to make sure, as she and Serena were on their way over, she decided to call Michael.

"Yeah, I'm excited," Lucy responded after Serena told the driver to let them off. She smiled at her sister genuinely. Serena was so full of life and energy. Luciana definitely wasn't dull, but she sometimes admired how confident and alive her sister always seemed. "I hope it's not either. Have you spoken to Kate lately? She hasn't answered any of my messages, and I know Mike said she wants nothing to do with him. Hold on, let me call him before we go up. I want to make sure that he's on his way." She paused a few feet away from the Rockefeller's building and called her brother.

"What's up?" Michael answered, picking up his phone on the first ring. He knew it was Luciana and that she was probably wondering where he was, so he was tempted not to answer it, but the buzzing in his pocket was bothering him, so he answered on the last ring. Besides, he was only a block away, so he didn't want her getting worried, like he knew she would, if he didn't answer. "Hey, Mike. How was the flight?" It would have been easier for Luciana to just demand to know where Mike was, but she wasn't that type of cold or demanding person. She didn't get worked up easily, and tended to be more concerned with her family and friend's well being over anything else. "It was alright. Did you need to ask me something, or what? I'm pulling up now, so -- oh, I see you. I'm hanging up." Just because of how genuinely nice Lucy tended to be, Mike usually felt bad if he was being short or uptight in his responses towards her, but he was feeling abnormally nervous right now. "He's here," Lucy smiled as her brother hung up, and she picked out a car pulling up at the curb. "Elliott texted me too, so let me answer him and then when Mike gets over here we'll go in," she thought out loud as she typed a response out to Elliott.

To: Elliot, Charlie
The Belluccis have arrived ;D!

Charlie Rockefeller thought that he was the only sensible person on the planet at this point. He had weighed all of the pros and cons of doing this show multiple times, and it just didn't add up. They were all going to be making good salaries, and that was a known fact, since there was no way that Charlie would have been forced to sign the contract otherwise, but regardless, it wasn't a good investment. They'd have to be making a million dollars per person, per episode that came out of the filming, for reality television to be a good idea. He supposed that maybe for the Bellucis and Kings, it could be a good idea. The Kings had made their living off of the entertainment industry, so they were an example of how press, good or bad, could boost the relevancy of a name, and in turn, boost sales. That principle didn't apply to any of the Rockefeller businesses, including the one that he and Jack were now involved in, the investment and wealth management company, Rockefeller & Co. His clients didn't want to know that he could down a bottle of whiskey in a night or that when he drank too much, he mirrored his father's tendency of getting violent. It just wasn't good for business, and for Charlie, that was the most important. His parents insisted that it wasn't a priority right now, and that he needed to relax. They thought that him being involved in the show would be a good thing, because it would give him a reason to take a break from work. "We want grandchildren soon!" they would remind him every time he objected to the show, and finally, he obliged. He didn't think that he neglected his social life that much, but he supposed that maybe it wouldn't be horrible to cut down his hours at work for a few months. The idea of doing the show still didn't seem necessary, since he was sure that could relax without a contract, but everyone else knew that wasn't true.

So, here he was. Trying to make the best of being home before ten at night, when he usually left the office, on a Thursday. Much to his mother's dismay, he had already started picking at the brunch dishes whenever the chef turned her back, so that was at least allowing him to relax a bit. It must have been fate stepping in when the toasted coconut waffles that he planned on coating in vanilla rum butter came out of the waffle irons right as one of the producers for the show came into the catering kitchen announcing that the Bellucci's were arriving now. That mouthwatering smell was probably the only thing that kept him from leaving then and there. Michael Bellucci, that piece of trash, was the last person that Charlie ever wanted to be associated with again in his life. He had done his sister wrong, and cheating on her had crossed every line in the book. Charlie didn't know who Mike thought he was, or more so, what family he thought he was disrespecting, but he planned on teaching the chump that his family wasn't one to be messed with. He would have to wait until the cameras were turned off for that to happen, though. And until after he had devoured those pancakes, that his hand was slapped away from as soon as his mother walked by and caught him grabbing for one. "Kate's waiting for you. They want you and her inside, so head in there, Charles," his mother insisted, shooing him away as if he were a member of the house staff.

To: Elliot, Luciana
The hell has begun :/. Hope you all are more prepared than I am.

He paused, sending out a text to Elliot, before doing as requested, and headed into one of the living rooms where he found Kate. They were asking her some basic questions that they would possibly use in singular interview segments. While one camera was fixed on her, the producer motioned Charlie into a guest room off of that hallway, where a camera and lights were set up. He sat down, hiding his reluctance well under a confident smile. "So, you know, every so often, we'll sit you all down separately and just ask a few questions about whatever's been going on. It'll give our viewers the opportunity to get your opinion on whatever's going on. You know, see what's happening in your head, get your side of the story, and so on," a man who Charlie knew as Ryan, but couldn't for the life of him remember his role in this production, said. "So, just look at the camera and answer in full sentences, since they'll cut out my part where I'm asking you the questions..." Ryan directed, before mouthing and using his finger to count down "three, two, one". "Alright, so, how are you feeling about this summer? What are your thoughts on how it's going to pan out?" he asked. "I think this summer will be... one to remember. People think that they know a lot about all of us, but a lot of what is written about us is a blatant lie or fabricated to a point where it might as well be a lie. It should be interesting to see how people react to getting to know the real us." Or, the real Michael. They'll see how he's trash, and maybe then girls will realize that they should stop drooling over his appearance and attitude because if they achieved their dreams of dating him, he'd cheat on them within hours. Probably pass along an STD or two, too.

By the time the Kings arrived in front of the entrance of the Rockefeller home, Liv was antsy with a grumbling tummy awaiting food she knew was going to be good and Elliot just wanted to get the day over with. It was difficult for him, at least, having to miss out on some days at work, particularly as it pertained to bands and the like. Elliot was heavily involved in the first works of the artists of his father's Mafioso label; he oversaw albums being dropped, signings, the first few concerts, and a lot of the first few tears artists shed on tours. He was good at making them comfortable, making them ready to do their job, but also take care of the image they originally put out. And sure, Phil could handle the position while he was gone; Elliot was very sure about that. But was he happy about that? Was the guy who was typically in control at all times pleased by leaving everything he was proud of in the hands of some one person who happened to also be qualified for the position Elliot had to work to acquire? Hell no!

To: Rini, Jack Jack
Pulling up now

"Do you think everything will be okay? You know, with Mike and the others?" Liv, once her text to her friends was sent,asked as their Maybach slowed to a stop. Elliot paused in smoothing out his shirt, sighing. Elliot had told Olivia from day one that he didn't trust Mike. Thought he was the slimiest of the group, how he still couldn't possibly believe the guy was even remotely related to Serena and Luciana. Serena could be bad and her with Olivia was just trouble for him and Lucy sometimes. But Mike...Mike was a completely different ball game. Kate wasn't the nicest person in the entire world, but she had never earned what she got from that asshole. Elliot could only imagine how much it truly still pisses Charlie off to have to be in the house with the same guy who broke his sister's heart. Elliot couldn't do it - he probably would have killed Mike the second Liv came home in tears. "Look, he's a douche and like I said before, you need to stay away from him. We all do." Olivia rolled her eyes, running fingers through silver-and-gold streaked hair before forcing on a smile when their driver opened the door for her before letting Elliot out. "I'm...I get it, ok? I'm not saying I...condone what he did...I just..." She just didn't know how much of this was going to affect the way their summer went. The Belluci's and the Rockefellers had been friends for years. A rift between them was something serious. And...despite how much she despised what he did to Kate and how much Liv understood that Mike fucked up, he was still technically one of her friends.

"Awww, don't get all sentimental, Bubbles," Elliot exclaimed with an arm over her shoulder. It was enough to distract Olivia from the cameras flashing. "Remember, you're still allowed to have fun. Just...don't go overboard." Olivia pretended to make a face. "Whaaaat? Meeee? When have I ever...?" She wouldn't have trailed off if she hadn't just so happened to see Mike exiting a car and despite the conversation they were just having, Olivia couldn't fight the smile away. "Is that Mike Belluci over there!? Where's Rina and Luce?" She called and Elliot exhaled, heavily, and pulled out his phone.

Luciana spotted Michael around the same time as Olivia and Elliot got out of their car, and likely saw Michael as well. He had spun around at the sound of his name, and smirked upon seeing who had called it out. It was Olivia, and less importantly, her brother Elliot stood next to her. Michael and Elliot had never had any real altercations. Their personalities just didn't mesh together well, and both knew it, so they never tried to force anything there. Michael was a fun and and energetic guy, and Elliot was a boring stick in the mud. There wasn't much that could be helped there, and Mike had given up caring about King years ago. "Liv! Don't you look... like you're ready for some fun," he smirked, vocalizing the borderline provocative comment after a hug, as he took a step back to look her up and down. He looked towards Elliot and gave him a nod. It wasn't like he wasn't going to be civil towards Elliot, because compared to the other guys in the house, his beef with Elliot was really non-existent. Even just thinking about that had knots forming in his stomach, but he tried to push the thought away. "The girls are right over there," he added, remembering his sisters and glancing towards the pair that were standing in the doorway of the building.

Lucy waited for the group of three to get closer to her and Serena to wave them over. "Hi guys!" she squealed when they did reach them. She first directed her attention towards the Kings, both of which, she pulled in for a tight squeeze. Her face lit up as she stepped back to take the brother-sister pair in. Although she and Elliot were closer in age and probably hung out more, she wouldn't say that she was closer with one King over the other. Luciana tended to be sentimental with all of her relationships, and was the type of person who couldn't rank one over another. The relationship that she had with the two of them were just different, that was all. With Elliot, he was like a best friend to her. They could really just hang out and have fun. While they both could handle the party scene when necessary, the two also seemed very comfortable just doing things on the down low, where there weren't a million and one cameras there to track what they were doing. He seemed to understand that older sibling complex that she had, too. Olivia was similar to Serena, so in a way, Luciana felt like an older to sister to her as well. She and Serena were best friends, so it wasn't uncommon for them to be wrapped up in the same problems or reeling over the same drama, and Luciana liked to be there for both of them. She sometimes worried for both girls, but she knew that the two of them had good heads on their shoulders. Her worrying was like that of a mother, and she knew that even if both girls were wrapped in bubble wrap, in some town in the middle of no where with nothing to get them into trouble, she would still worry about what they were doing. "You both look amazing," she grinned, taking in Elliot's always-stylish image, and Olivia's effortlessly cool look. "But let's head in. We all know not to keep the Rockefellers waiting by this point," she added with a playful smile. She considered that it was just herself being too paranoid, but she felt like the tension Mike brought over with him was suffocating. It likely did have something to do with herself, and how she would worry about her brother's problems just as much as he, but still. This couldn't be good.
