ImageFor some reason or another he hadn't been able to sleep for the past couple of months, which really sucked. He could feel the tiredness of his eye bags, he didn't have to see them to know they were purple and blue shades. He knew if anyone saw them they'd freak and ask what was wrong, so he had been covering them with concealer her borrowed, without asking, from his mom. He was so tried and ready to just fall asleep, to doze off until a world that wasn't real, but lately that hadn't been working for him. Every night he tried keeping himself entertained by doing things likes reading, watching T.V., dancing, and just other pass times that made him forget about the fact he needed some sleep; at the moment he just watched the ceiling. He felt slightly lonely, but it's not like he could just call someone up at three in the morning, that thought had already crossed his mind and he had decided it wasn't the best idea. Most of his friends normally didn't rise until around two in the afternoon, meaning his loneliness might stretch longer then he wished.

"Ok, this is enough of silence!" Finally growing tired of the loneliness, he sat up and let his feet touch the warm white carpet. He's room wasn't very grand, in fact it was very simple. The bed was barely big enough to fit two people in and was pushed up against the right wall next to the door, the same wall was covered of pictures of so many things that Axel had taken, on the opposite wall there were random black and white poster of old famous stars and more pictures he had taken, there was also a keyboard in front of the window (which he was trying to teach himself to play); the view from the window was beautiful. Outside the window was nothing but soft moon light casting gentle shadows across tree tops and floating on the pond in his backyard. In the summer he'd swim in the pond with his friends, the closet thing to a lake he had ever seen since there were none on the island. In fact Axel lived out in a small area of woods with his brother.

Once he was completely up on his feet he walked over to the wooden door, pulled the golden nob, and then made his way down the hardwood floor. He only took about ten steps before reaching his destination and stopping in front of another wooden door. Raising a clenched fist, he hit the door before opening it himself. As soon as he entered the room he was attacked by coolness of the early morn, he immediately got cold chills all over his body. "Why the heck do you insist on sleeping out here? You're going to catch your death!" His voice was barely below a yell as he called to his brother, who for whatever reason thought it was okay to sleep in the screened-in patio during such cool mornings, and even sometimes during the winter. It was cold to Axel, but he knew his brother was probably finding warmth from the fact he was lying on a bed that he had drug in himself years ago and was bundled in a cocoon of covers.

"Why the heck did you come in here? I need my beauty rest!" Before Axel had time to react his brother had already brought his arm back and threw a pillow towards Axel's face. When it hit him it didn't hurt at all, it was the most comfortable thing ever either, but at least there was no pain. The pillow fell to the ground followed by his glasses. "If you had broken those I would have made you buy me new ones." "Like hell I would. Can't you go bother someone else?" He watched his brother flop around in the bed before quickly falling back to sleep. Thanks for the heart warming conversation. As the thought faded, wit the feeling of defeat he sighed and left the room shutting the door behind him.

Knock! Knock!

"Who the fuck could that be?" The groan from his brother's room only made him laugh as he walked through all the twist and turns to make his way to the living room to the door. Normal people probably would have thought it was crazy he was about to open the door at three in the morning without any weapon, but of course on the island everyone knew each other so there was no need to fear anything.

Opening the door he was kind of shocked to find a girl wearing a black leather jacket with silver studs. The outfit was sexy in it's own right: a black loose shirt, skin hugging black ripped tights, black combat boots, and in her cotton candy pink hair was a homemade crown of sunflowers, which really showed the girls personality. "I hope I didn't wake you." A warm smile grew across her face as she brought Axel into a comfortable hug. She was in most ways perfect, from her personality to her appearance, Axel cared greatly about her, in fact he viewed her like a little sister. "You're always welcome here, Barbie, and you already know that." Before he even got the chance to finish his sentence Barbie had made her way to the couch and stared at the suitcase that laid in front of it. "You're taking another trip." Without words he just nodded his head to her statement. The tiny girl giggled as she began to step inside the case and crouch down in it. "Well this time you have to take me too!" Watching her only brought a smile to his face. "I would invite you, but we only bought three plane tickets-" [color=#ED6868]"I know, I know, you're going to invite Marius to go with you, though you haven't yet." At this statement Axel bit his bottom lip. He was nervous to ask his best friend to go on a trip with him, though the two had gone on vacations with each other before this time was different. Not to long ago when the two boys had been drunk they had shared a kiss, he wasn't even sure if Marius even remembered it. "In fact..." Before he had time to react Barbie had popped up and taken his phone from him. Dialing some number she put the phone up to her ear. "Who are you calling." "Marius of course, if you can't ask him I will for you." His heart raced as he tried to prior the phone from her, but she was to fast and began to run.

***


The phone rang around three times and she wasn't sure if it had been answered or not, so she just began to speak. "Hey, Marius, this is Barbie, and Axel was wondering if you wanted to-" Stopping mid-sentence Axel had caught up to her when they had reached his room and hung the phone up. "I didn't get to finish!" Frowning at his actions, she just pulled her phone out and held a finger up to him when she noticed he had flinched. "Hey, Jessica, I Imagelove you and we should hang out later, bye love you." Barbie didn't give her girlfriend much time to reply or even pick up, for all she knew she just caught the answering machine again. "That was extremely brief." With a flimsy smile she yawned, and that made Axel yawn as well.

She didn't say another word, but instead laid down on his bed and quickly drifted off to sleep. Axel smiled at her and covered her up with his blankets, happy that his loneliness was gone. Watching her he decided to curl up next to her and hold her in his arms, though he wasn't tired, he just laid next to her in silence with his eyes shut.

Charlotte slept soundly beside Derek, in the most comfortable position she could possibly be in. She was nestled against his chest, and his arm was draped over her, holding her to him. A soft noise caused her eyes to flutter open, but Derek's even breathing and steady heartbeat lulled her back into a half-asleep state. Nobody could make her feel quite as safe as he could. She laced her fingers with his, and felt no desire to move from their warm embrace. A slightly louder noise caused Lottie to wake up completely. She glanced at the door, blinking against the bright morning sun. She yawned and looked at her alarm clock. The alarm was off, and it was a half of an hour later than when she had intended to wake up. By this time, Marius would already be awake. That would be the noises she was hearing. She let go of Derek's hand, and quickly sat up. She rubbed her eyes, realizing their situation. "Derek!" She whispered urgently and softly rolled him onto his back to wake him up. "Marius is up. If he sees you, we're both dead. Although at least he won't maim me." She teased him, smiling lightly.
There was a soft rap at the door, and Lottie's gentle blue eyes widened. "I'm not decent!!" She called quickly. "Alright. I just wanted to make sure you were still alive, usually you're up before me." Marius answered, with a light laugh. Lottie relaxed slightly when she heard him walk away. She untangled herself from Derek reluctantly. She quickly got dressed, and peeked out the door forca second before quickly closing the door. "So..." she murmured, sitting down next to Derek and smiling at him softly. "How are we going to sneak you out without Marius catching you. Or Bear, for that matter."

Jessica slowly woke up, the sunlight spilling through gap in the curtains. The sun was billion of miles away yet still had perfect aim. She glared at the giant fireball, reluctantly getting out of her bed. Her feet tapped on the cold floor, searching for her slippers. Finding them, she sunk her feet into the soft wool and mentally prepared herself for the day. Her brother was home for the summer. She could hear him clattering about in the kitchen. She pulled her dressing gown around her and checked the phone in the pocket. The screen informed her she had one voicemail. Checking the message, she smiled when she heard Barbie's voice over the line. Screw what the rest of the island would say, Jessica loved Barbie and that was final. She could see nothing perverse about her love for the younger girl. Love was a beautiful and Barbie was the one Jessica shard that gift with.

Jessica slipped her phone back into her pocket and padded downstairs. As she expected, her brother, Matthew, was in the kitchen. The room was filled with the rich aroma of coffee as Matthew stood over the coffee machine, "Staring at it won't make it work any quicker," Jessica said as she placed two slices of bread in the toaster.

"Morning," Matthew croaked.

Jessica gave a half smile at her brother's back while they waited for food and coffee. As Jessica ate her toast, she thought about what she could do with Barbie for the day. She sent a text to Barbie.

Good morning beautiful. Can't wait to see you. Give me a call when you can. Love you xx


"Who you texting?"

Jessica's head snapped up at the sound of her brother's voice, "Just Barbie."

Matthew nodded slowly. As far as Matthew was concerned, his sister and Barbie weree simply very close friends. Like everyone else on the island, the thought that a family member could be gay never crossed his mind. For this, Jessica was glad. It might one less person for her to lie to. It wasn't lying, not really. Simply omitting the truth. He had never asked her and she had neither confirmed nor denied. She loved her family, but Jessica couldn't wait to get off the island so she could live her life without having to keep a part of her secret. Jessica dropped her plate in the sink and began her usual ritual of dressing. After washing herself, Jessica laid out her outfit on her bed, casting her phone the occasional glance so she didn't miss anything, particularly from Barbie, but Harper too. She hated Harper, but missing a summoning from her would be more trouble then it was worth. It meant running the risk of Barbie finding out, which was something Jessica wanted to avoid for as long as possible. She wasn't sure she could handle the inevitable disappointment that would be on Barbie's face. She took a deep breath, checking her make up in the dresser mirror before heading back down into the front room, where she waited for a call from the outside world to summon her into action.

The sound of her iPod player was muffled as her ears slipped under the bathwater. The world seemed to slow down, as she let herself sink to the bottom of the tub. She let her mind wander, recalling her night out. The house had been overly crowded- with more people than she had expected. Of course, Jacob didn't let her spend much time down the party. He had pulled her away for some private fun early in the night. It wasn't until the sound of sirens blared through the second story window that Harper realized what was happening. She made it out the window and down the tree. Then she was running, running as fast as she could. The cops were too busy busting all the stumbling drunks in the front yard to really notice a skinny brunette making off into the woods. Luckily, it was a small neighborhood- and her house wasn't too far.. only about three-four miles, which for her as a runner- wasn't that bad.

Coming up for air, Harper sat in the bath and let out a sigh. She had ignored her phone all night. No doubt she had missed a text or a million from Lucas. She briefly wondered what he would think if he knew she was sleeping with the college boy. With an annoyed roll of her eyes, she stood. He wouldn't care, he'd find a way to make it the guy's fault and still love her through it. Harper lifted her fingers and brushed them against the steam on the mirror. Why did she always want to bruise the hell out of Lucas? What was it about seeing him battered and bleeding that made her so hot under the collar? She smiled, taking a moment to admire herself in the mirror. With a small smirk, she wrapped a towel around her and made her way to her room.

Image
As she was getting dressed, her mother came in. "You'll have to start packing soon." College. She was talking about college, again. Harper sighed, turning around to face her. Running a hand through her hair, "Um... I know. I just.. I thought I could, you know, wait until summer was a little closer to being over.. you know, so I could have clothes to wear?" "Oh. I had thought you'd want to move into your apartment by campus as soon as you could.." "You thought wrong," Harper said flatly, turning her back to her mother as she straightened the outfit she had laying on her bed. "You haven't told him that you're leaving, have you, Harper." Harper froze, slowly straightening. Turning to look at her mother, she narrowed her eyes. "I need to get dressed." Her mother sighs and holds up her hands, silently leaving.

Harper rolled her eyes and finished getting ready- remembering to put her bikini on under her outfit and picking up her cellphone to text Lucas.

To: L <3
Message: Are we still on for tonight? I need to get away. Meet me by the dock in 20.


She knew he'd never deny her, if he could avoid it. She hadn't told him that she was accepted into the college. She would be moving out of not just the island, but the country. Not that he didn't have the money to fly and see her; at least, that's what she tried to reason with herself. Dressed, Harper made her way out of the house and toward the docks. She'd walk, since it was a nice day out. Her sandals left little prints in the gravel and sand as she walked along the road from her house to the beach.

As she walked, she paused in front of Derek's house. She debated going inside, but at the last minute decided against it- choosing to text instead.

To: Deerdick
Message: Wake up, deerdick. Time to go! Lucas' is taking me out on the boat, you should come. You know you wanna see me in my bikini! Or maybe you want to see me out of it... (;


Smirking, Harper continued walking. When she arrived at the beach, she made her way to the dock- ignoring the chatter of the fishermen. Lifting herself onto the railing, she looked around- waiting for someone she knew to arrive. Since she was bored, she pulled out her phone again and turned on the camera. Directing the lens down her shirt, she snapped a picture of her cleavage and sent it to Jessica.

To: J <3
Message: Miss me? Come for a boat ride with me. Don't keep me waiting long. <3 XoXo baby.

Jessica sat up when he phone beeped. She checked her phone and her stomach dropped when she saw that it was from Harper. Sighing, she opened the message and was greeted with the familiar image of Harper's cleavage and a text summoning her to the docks. Harper wanted to go on a boat ride. Jessica had a feeling that her protests would fall on deaf ears. She could think of a million and one things she'd rather do than go on a boat trip with Harper and whoever else she had invited along.

Pouting, Jessica replied to the text
Sure, I'll be there in a few


Jessica skipped into the kitchen, "Matthew?" She called, waiting for her brother to acknowledge her, "If Barbie comes round, can you tell her I'm just running errands."

"You hiding something from her?"

Jessica looked at her brother, an eyebrow raised, "What? No?" She hated the fact that her brother, who was so dim sometimes, could see straight through her at times. He looked at her, his gaze steady and Jessica relented, "Fine, yes, I'm seeing someone and I wanna keep it quiet OK?" It wasn't exactly a lie, Jessica told herself, she just knew that Matthew would put a different context on her words.

Matthew nodded, "Sure, I'll let her know you're busy."

Jessica rolled her eyes before slowly making her way upstairs back to her room. She rifled through her wardrobe, searching for a swimsuit to wear. She had a few bikinis but she didn't really want to wear one with Harper around. She pulled out a black swimsuit. It was sexy but not obviously so. She slipped it on underneath her clothes, suddenly questioning her choice in outfit. Was it too sexy? What would Harper think of it? Jessica shook her head, she couldn't live her life in fear of what Harper might think of her. She was her own person and was responsible for her own life.

Making her way back downstiars, she grabbed her little bag in leiu of having any pockets and yelled a goodbye through the house before making her way to the dock. It was a nice day outside, the sun was warm on her bare arms as she walked through the streets. She smiled politely at the people who knew her, thankful that she hadn't wandered into Barbie on her way to the dock. Jessica searched the dock for the horribly familiar face of Harper. Spotting her, Jessica gave a half hearted wave to the girl and made her way to the girl's side, her arms folded forming a shield between herself and Harper. "You summoned me?" Jessica asked, her voice hollow, not even bothering to hide her feelings about being here.

ImageA soft tickling sensation next to Barbie's face caused her to gently wake from her sleep. The vibration itself was so tiny and silent, yet it still woke her up. Her vision was blurry as she rubbed her eyes. Sitting up a small yawn escaped from her mouth as she picked up her phone. Looking at the home screen she saw the contact name Jessica <3. Seeing this of course brought a cheeky smile to Barbie. Quickly sliding the unlock button she read the text:

From: Jessica<3
Good morning beautiful. Can't wait to see you. Give me a call when you can. Love you xx


After reading it she immediately called her girlfriend.

Ring. Ring. Ring.

Odd.

For Jessica not to answer Barbie's call was strange, though she didn't think to much into it. With every fiber of her being Barbie trusted Jessica, mainly because she loved her so much but also because they had been bestfriends for a very, very, very long time.

Slinging her feet off the edge of the bed she then looked over at Axel, whom appeared extremely peaceful. In a way she wanted to wake him up and ask him to take her by Jessica's house, but at the same time she wanted to watch him sleep and remain in his peaceful little world. Axel thought he was sneaky, but his tired like tendencies didn't surpass Barbie. She wasn't sure what was wrong with him, but she had noticed the eye bags; she hoped since summer how just begun he would start getting more rest. A gentle sigh managed to leave her lips, and the after her small sound the room turned back into quietness. Not sure what to do she leaned back and rested her head on Axel's stomach.

Accidentally she had woken him up; she had known as soon as she heard him groan. "Why are you already up, beautiful?" Followed by the question was Axel's hand soothingly running through her hair. "Jessica texted me, but when I call she didn't answer." He hadn't replied to her, he just got up out of bed. "What are you doing?" She watched as he removed his pajama pants and replace them with a pair of blue jeans that had already been in his floor. "We can go drive by her house and see if she wants to go shopping with us today." "But I don't know if she's home." "We'll see anyways." Popping out of bed she followed him out of his room.

***


ImageSitting in the front seat of the car she repetitively texted Jessica with messages like: Where are you? Would you like to go shopping with me? Is something wrong? After about the eighth text Axel took her phone from her. Barbie looked out the window with glistening eyes and a puppy dog pout. "You can do that all you want, you're not getting your phone back until we get to her house." She didn't try to get it back, nor did she say anything about it, she wasn't easily upset or saddened, she was just a little worried that Jessica wasn't answering her. It was odd for her girlfriend to not reply right away, but on the occasion she did, sometimes.

The car ride for a big sum of it was quiet, expect for their small conversations here and there and the fact that Axel kept the radio playing the whole time. Living on the island limited the stations they could listen to, there was three radio stations, all gospel all the time. Barbie was Christian in her own opinion, she knew that most people didn't agree with being attracted to the same sex, but she was. When she was younger she tried to trick herself into being straight, but as time went on she learned that God loved her for what and who she was.

"We're here." Those words brought Barbie out of her train of though and into a very uplifting mood, until she noted that Jessica's car was gone. "Her cars not here, she's gone." She wasn't really sad, but that life that had just reached her was drained. Axel pulled her into a hug and started messing up her hair was his knuckle. "Stop!" Giggling and squirming she took some time to wiggle away. When she got away the two teens shared a laugh before Barbie gave Axel a smile and then grabbed back her phone. Going through her recent calls she dialed Marius' number. "Hey, Marius, this is Barbie again. Axel and I are going shopping, would you like to come with us?' She was a little bummed out that she couldn't see Jessica, but she didn't want that to ruin her mood, so what better way to fix that then to spend time with some friends?

Lucas Jonas


The buzzing of Lucas' phone was enough to wake him from his light sleep. He jumped up- or at least, he tried to- and hit his head on the ceiling. Ow. Luke gingerly patted the top of his head and sighed. Reason number 38 why he told his parents not to buy him a loft bed. He'd really have to start writing them down someday. Luke yawned and slid to the ground. He ran a hand through his hair before finally remembering why he'd woken up in the first place. Luke practically dove to the other side of the room where his phone was charging and quickly checked his texts. He smiled as Harper's name appeared.

At nine o'clock the night before, he'd sent her a text. When she didn't immediately respond, a number of worst-case scenarios had passed through his mind, but he'd tried to remain calm. Luke never was good at pulling all-nighters, but he'd managed to stay awake until three in case she replied. Now that it was morning, Luke realized that hadn't been the best of ideas. He was going to need caffeine to make it through this day. He read the message and grinned. She must be wanting to go out on the boat. The sun shining through his window was proof of the good weather, so he quickly replied:

I was able to get out of the dinner event, so everything's planned for tonight. I'll be right there.


Luke pulled on a pair of cargo shorts and a baggy t-shirt. Even with that little amount of movement, he winced slightly while using his arms. His shoulders and upper arms were sporting several bruises and cuts that weren't going away fast. But Harper had been feeling a little sick, and he'd probably said something, so it wasn't her fault. Luke quietly walked down the stairs and to the kitchen, where he grabbed a bagel, before entering the garage. All of the family's car, boat, and house keys were hanging by the door. He took the boat one and left his house through a side door before his parents could notice. When he told Harper that he'd gotten out of the family's dinner hosting, he'd neglected to tell her that it was because she was "introducing him to her family," but that didn't matter. It was true in the sense that he was spending time with Harper.

Before entering the dock, Luke took a small detour at the closest gas station and bought a pack of Sun Drop soda. He knew one bottle would probably have been enough to last him the whole day, but caffeine crashes were never a good thing. Besides, Harper might want one or two. And speaking of... Luke could see Harper sitting on the railing close by, looking breathtaking as always. He smiled and was about to shout her name when he noticed the girl she was talking to. Jessica Treys. Luke stopped short and scowled slightly. What the heck was she doing here? He finally started walking again and set the soda down near Harper's feet. Luke gave Jessica a small nod before pulling out his bagel. He looked up at Harper and smiled again. "Morning Harper. You look beautiful, as usual. Do you want some of my bagel?"

Derek Maxal

Image


This was probably the most sound sleep Derek had ever gotten in his entire life. He could feel his warmth mixing with Lottie’s as they lay there together. His arm was draped over her body, hugging her back to his chest. She was so soft and warm and… fragile. His breathing was steady and even as he slept deeply; occasionally shifting beside her so the both of them could be more comfortable.

Derek felt Lottie stir beside him. He whined childishly in protest, holding onto her tightly. She managed the squirm out of his grip and flip him onto his back. With a soft grumbling sound, he rubbed his eyes, looking up at Lottie. Her mouth was moving, but he couldn’t hear what she was saying. He sat up and yawned as his senses cleared and the sound of the world around him came somewhat back into focus. She heard her say a certain word: Marius. His eyes widened as panic flared in his chest.

“Oh God… he’s going to slaughter me!” He hissed quietly as he got off of the bed and began to get dressed. He tugged on the shirt and sweatshirt he wore yesterday. It took him a few minutes to get his pants up. He finally managed to zip them shut, but the outwards dent in his jeans was still rather prominent. Ehh… I’ll take care of that later.


Derek scrambled to grab his things and keep quiet at the same time. He grabbed his phone and wallet out of his bag in the corner, but left the bag. He plopped down onto the bed next to Lottie, looking over at her with a devilish smirk on his face, completely forgetting he was probably in a life or death situation right now. Marius did know that he was over yesterday to study with Lottie, he just didn’t know that he had decided to stay for a bit longer afterwards. “You can drop that off later. It’ll give you an excuse to come over.” He winked before leaning towards her, their shoulders touching. He twisted his body so that he was facing her. Derek continued to lean forwards until their faces were very close, barely an inch away from each other.

Derek kissed her lips tenderly, his hand moving to rest on her thigh. For a moment, he had completely forgotten about the world around him. All he could feel, taste, see, and smell was Lottie. He had just begun the put more passion and force into the kiss when he felt his phone vibrate in his pocket, which made him jump and pull away. “Heh… sorry about that.” He smiled brilliantly, rubbing the back of his head somewhat awkwardly as he pulled out his phone.

He knew the message was going to be from Harp. Derek rolled his eyes slightly at what she said and threw back a quick reply. Not sure if I can make it. I’ll text you if I can in a few minutes. He stood up and stretched out his back, before sitting back down to put on his shoes.

“Now, how to get out of here… there’s always the window.” He offered, pointing in the direction of it with his thumb. “You could go downstairs and distract Marius. You know, come up with a reason to move him to the other side of the house. I’ll only need a few seconds. As soon as I turn the corner, I’ll be fine.” He nodded. The plan seemed reasonable enough.

“Oh God… he’s going to slaughter me!” Lottie bit her lip and glanced at the door, listening for Marius. If he found out Derek was here he would murder him and never let her out of his sight.
She turned her head, to watch Derek gather his things. He plopped down next to her with a devilish smirk, and she smiled brightly at him. He had left his bag and she knew where he was going with that. “You can drop that off later. It’ll give you an excuse to come over.” Lottie grinned and laughed lightly. "I'll take any excuse to come see you."

He winked and leaned towards her, twisting his body towards her. As he leaned in closer, she felt her heart race. Her lips parted slightly, and she inhaled quickly. Her eyes fluttered closed and she leaned towards him in anticipation. When he finally kissed her tenderly, her heart fluttered. She melted under his touch, her thigh warm under his hand. She laced her fingers through his hair, intoxicated by him. She leaned in closer, but they were cut off by a vibration in his pocket.

Derek and Lottie both jumped, and narrowly avoided accidentally biting each other's lip. She chuckled, and he rubbed the back of his neck and flashed her a brilliant smile that made her heart skip a beat. She smiled back, as he spoke to her. “Heh… sorry about that.” He pulled out his phone, and Lottie rested her head on his shoulder. He texted back whoever had messaged him, and she pouted slightly as he stood up and stretched.

“Now, how to get out of here… there’s always the window.” He gestured over to the open window, and her eyes warily looked over at it. "Well, I wouldn't want you damaging that pretty face of yours. It is the only reason I like you, after all." She teased, grinning at him and cuddling up beside him. “You could go downstairs and distract Marius. You know, come up with a reason to move him to the other side of the house. I’ll only need a few seconds. As soon as I turn the corner, I’ll be fine.” She nodded in agreement. That should work. If he hears anything or gets suspicious, I'll just trip or fall down the stairs or something o get his attention. You should be fine."

She rested her head on his shoulder, relishing the last few moments they had together. "Once i'm looking presentable i'll come by and 'bring you your bag'." She grinned at him, with a wink. "I'll see what Luke is doing today, too. We should do something fun to embrace summer, now that it's finally here." She looked up at him with her gentle blue eyes, smiling softly. He had the most beautiful eyes, that never failed to make her heart skip a beat.

Derek Maxal

Derek couldn’t help but smile at Lottie. “Alrighty. Just make sure you don’t hurt yourself down those stairs.” He chuckled. He quickly made his way over to the window, unlocked it, and opened it up. He took a deep breath through his nose and looked down. He couldn’t help but gulp slightly. Jumping from a second story window would make anyone nervous.

Derek bit his bottom lip anxiously and went over his options again. One was he could walk downstairs, face Marius, and probably be brutally murdered. He quickly realized that he’d rather jump out a window and run down the street with a twisted ankle then have Marius find out he had stayed the night. He sat down on the windowsill and swung his legs over.

The ground underneath him looked quite hard and unforgiving. Derek glanced back at Lottie and flashed her a reassuring smile, though it may have been more to reassure himself than her. “See you in a little while, Lottie. Don’t forget about my bag.” He smirked, snickering softly. “‘Love you.” He added as he pushed off the window.

As Derek’s feet hit the ground, he bent his legs and allowed himself to summersault forwards, coming to a short stop in a sitting position. He scrambled to his feet and jogged on the front lawn, making sure not to kick up and dirt or grass. As soon as his feet hit asphalt, he was off like a rocket. He sprinted down the street, his feet slamming down onto the pavement. He turned the corner and slowed to a jog once more, my chest heaving. His heart was pounding in his chest, and he prayed that Marius hadn’t heard or seen him make his quick escape.  

After the house was out of sight, Derek jogged down the street with leisure, making his way to his house which was only a few minutes away. He thought quickly to himself as he marched on. I’ve got a choice on my hands… either wait for Lottie to come over later, or go on a boat ride with Harper… He furrowed his brow in concentration. He had already made his decision, of course. He was obviously going to wait for Lottie. He was just very confused to why Harper never seemed to like Lottie.

Derek and Harper have been close friends for a while now, but ever since he started dating Lottie she’d been acting odd. He would think that Harper was jealous, but she doesn’t seem like the kind of person who would be jealous of someone like Lottie. He especially didn’t like it when Harper would talk bad about Lottie in front of him, or even in general.

Derek ran a little faster as his house came into view. It was of a decent size considering he was living alone. It had three rooms and two bathrooms, as well as a large living room and fully stocked kitchen. He was surprised when his uncle had picked this house; he had assumed he would choose something much smaller. But Derek was happy with the choice nonetheless, and does his best to keep the house in the best shape it could possible be in.

It felt like a huge weight had been taken off of his shoulders as he stepped into his house, locking the door behind him. Derek immediately flopped onto his couch, a deep sigh escaping his lips. For a while he just lay there, staring up at the ceiling, thinking about random things and life in general. This was pretty common for him to just stop and think about the important things in life, especially when memories of his father made themselves clear in his mind. But one thing he knew was “that  is in the past and always will be”. He had something new to think about instead of his father. Lottie is his whole life now, and if something were to happen to her he would crumble and fall.

Within a few minutes of soaking up the sun, Harper felt her phone wiggle to life. Checking it, she read over the text from Jessica, Sure, I'll be there in a few. Harper smiled, but didn't bother to reply. What was there to say, anyway? 'K'? Not worth the effort. As she waited, she inspected her nails, and offered a flirt to the group of joggers that went by. It wasn't long before Jessica's stunning self was walking down the path to the dock. "You summoned me?" Harper pouts, looking up at Jessica through her lashes. "What kind of a greeting is that? I offer you a fun day out on the boat, and you act like I've forced you into fucking me out here in the open while everyone watches," Harper sighs. Rolling her eyes, she shifts her weight on the rail and looks Jessica over. "That's not your bikini strap," she notes, boredly. "Sometimes you can be such a prude."

Growing annoyed, Harper looks away from her girl-toy; her phone vibrates again. It's Lucas; I was able to get out of the dinner event, so everything's planned for tonight. I'll be right there. Smiling, Harper looks up to Jessica. "Bad news, baby boo. Lucas says he can make it, so you don't get me all to yourself. Still smiling, Harper reaches out to Jessica to take her wrist, pulling Jessica closer and between her legs if Jessica would allow. "I promise I'll find a time to steal you away so we can have some us time," she whispers, "Kay?" Harper winks and releases the girl, if she had been allowed to pull her close. If not, she would have said the same, only out loud and not in a whisper. Her texts must be arriving late, because it's within moments that Lucas appears on the horizon. Harper grins and jumps down from her perch on the railing, running over to Lucas and wrapping her arms around him if he would allow. "Hey there, handsome! You made it!" she chirps. Releasing him and stepping back, she moves to stand beside Jessica as Lucas looks her over."Morning Harper. You look beautiful, as usual. Do you want some of my bagel?" Harper laughs and shakes her head.

"Nah, I'm not really---sec." she pauses mid sentence as her phone vibrates again. It's Derek, saying he'll think about it but she knows what that means. Rolling her eyes, she sends him a text back. It's simple, and to the point.

To: Deerdick
Message: Pussy.


After she sends the text she turns back to Lucas, asking "Do you have the keys? I really want to go to the island. You've got drinks on the boat, right? Doesn't your dad keep the mini-bar stocked up pretty good?" As she speaks, she starts to unbutton her top, looking up as the shirt hangs off her slender figure. "Let's get going, I don't there Deerdick is going to make it. Probably too busy fucking the preachers daughter. Cause, you know, she's too good to hang out with us," Harper explains, rolling her eyes as she turns and starts to walk toward the boat. She steps aboard and turns to offer her hand to Jessica to help her get on. If Jessica accepts the help, that is; if not, Harper goes to the front of the boat and drops her shirt onto a chair, taking a deep breath. She slowly releases it as she closes her eyes and feels the warmth of the sun on her tanned skin. Grinning now, she turns to Jessica and points to the radio, "Turn it on, and let's get the hell out of here," she chirps. When the music comes on, Harper dances over to Jessica and takes her hand, pulling her close and grinding against her as she leaves Lucas to drive the boat away from the dock. If Jessica doesn't dance back, Harper would simply grind on her anyway, effectively giving her a standing lap dance. After a while, Harper leaves Jessica to sulk if she wants to, and goes down into the cabin.

When she comes back out, she's got a liquior bottle in her hand. Unscrewing the lid, Harper throws the bottle back and takes a long drag, taking a sharp breath of air afterwords. She dances with the bottle in her hand, offering the bottle to Jessica after a moment. "Lucas!" Harper giggles, dancing over to him. She leans against wheel and takes his jaw in her hand, turning his face away from the water and to her if he would allow. "I am going to leave you breathless when we get to the beach," she says softly, releasing his jaw and turning away. She walks back to the front of the boat and flops down on the large couch that takes up the very front of the boat. Water occassionally sprays up at her, but she doesn't seem to mind. "What are your summer plans, Jess?" she asks, reaching out to take the bottle back and have another slow gulp.

"What kind of a greeting is that? I offer you a fun day out on the boat, and you act like I've forced you into fucking me out here in the open while everyone watches," Harper sighs. Jessica looked out over the dock. Maybe, she thought, because you're blackmailing me into this. They were never words she would say out loud though. Jessica had noticed the bruises Lucas had and, while she was never completely sure where he got them from, Jessica wasn't about to take the risk of putting herself into Harper's line of fire. "That's not your bikini strap," she heard Harper comment. "Sometimes you can be such a prude."

Jessica shrugged, "I prefer swimsuits, it's nothing to do with being prude," Jessica leant back from the railings, her hands keeping grip on the railings while her arms straightened out. She looked at Harper, "Besides, you know fine well I'm not a prude."

If Harper had heard her, she gave no indication of it. Instead her focus was on the cellphone. Jessica didn't mi d. The longer Harper spent on the damn machine, the less time Jessica had to spend talking to her. Harper eventually looked back to Jessica.

"Bad news, baby boo. Lucas says he can make it, so you don't get me all to yourself. Still smiling, Harper reached out to Jessica to take her wrist, pulling Jessica closer. Jessica followed the pull like a ragdoll, standing uncomfortably close to Harper. Jessica stiffened slightly when Harper whispered in her ear, "I promise I'll find a time to steal you away so we can have some us time," she whispers, "Kay?" Harper winked and let go of Jessica.

"Can't wait," Jessica said dryly, folding her arms back across herself, making it harder for Harper to hold her. Lucas must have arrived because Harper's demeanour changed once again. Sometimes, Jessica could barely keep up with Harper's moods. Heaven knew she'd much rather be with Barbie right now. Why did Harper need her to hang around when she had Lucas anyway? Jessica looked over her shoulder, offering Lucas a weak smile in place of a verbal greeting, largely tuning out their small talk as they fussed over each other for a while. Jessica was a pretty decent actress, and she searched for the character in herself that wanted to be here and had no problem with Harper and their messed up relationship. Jess found that character and she clung to it like a safety cord.

"Do you have the keys? I really want to go to the island. You've got drinks on the boat, right? Doesn't your dad keep the mini-bar stocked up pretty good?" Harper started speaking again. As she spoke, Harper started to unbutton her top. Jessica couldn't help looking appreciatively as Harper stripped. Jess knew Harper liked to keep in shape, and it showed. Harper had a good figure. There was no way Jessica would ever think Harper was anywhere near as beautiful as Barbie, not to Jess anyway, but there was no harm in looking. "Let's get going, I don't there Deerdick is going to make it. Probably too busy fucking the preachers daughter. Cause, you know, she's too good to hang out with us."

Jessica bit her tongue when Harper started badmouthing Charlotte. Jessica didn't know the girl personally, but she seemed a nice enough girl. But she knew Harper was a borderline control freak and couldn't accept that her friend had made his choice.
Jessica stood back as Harper climbed aboard the boat, taking the hand Harper offered to help herself on. Standing on the boat, Jessica pulled her t-shirt over her head, revealing the cutouts of her swimsuit. She shimmied out her skirt and folded her clothes, placing them under the chair that held Harper's shirt.

"Turn it on, and let's get the hell out of here," Jessica looked up and saw Harper pointing at the stereo. When the music came on, Harper danced over to Jessica and took her hand, pulling Jessica close and grinding against her. Jessica found the character again and allowed herself to feel comfortable with Harper dancing against her, responding in turn to Harper's movements before the other girl momentarily disappeared beneath deck. Harper soon came back with a bottle in her hand, taking a deep swig from the bottle before passing it to Jessica. Figuring it was something alcoholic, Jessica gladly accepted the bottle while Harper went of to flirt with Lucas. Jessica watched for Harper coming back to her, taking several swigs from the bottle, hoping for a little liquid courage. Harper came back to sit by Jessica, indicating that she wanted to the bottle back. Jessica gladly handed it over, the alcohol making her head feel a little fuzzy from drinking too quickly. She was starting to think thoughts that she really didn't want to be thinking. Mostly involving Harper where they should have involved Barbie.

"What are your summer plans, Jess?" The question took Jessica by surprise. Once again, she was going to have to lie. Lucas didn't know want was going on, and Jessica felt that this was a situation where ignorance was bliss, especially when it came to protecting Barbie. He could think what he liked about Jessica, but the notion that anyone would have a bad word to say against Barbie made her blood boil.

Jessica shrugged, "Hanging out with Axel and Barbie, y'know, being third wheel and all that," she said with a small laugh, remembering the charade the two friends had going, "Helping dad out at the garage. The usual really, maybe start looking into college options, I dunno," Jessica looked out over the sea. She knew she would be looking into college. The sooner she could get away from this place, the better and college was one of her tickets out, "What about you two?" She asked, looking back into the boat, "What are your plans?" She wanted the attention off her as soon as possible and the best way to do that, Jess figures, was to get the other two talking.
