|Full Name|
Elliot Frederic Robson.

|Nickname|
Elliot doesn’t really like to have nicknames but you can call him Eli or Fred, that’s it. Nothing cutesy or anything.

|Birthday|
April 23 1991.

|Age|
23.

|Nationality|
Most people at first glance think that he is Chinese, Japanese or Asian at first glance – Even though he is Chinese but he is also mixed with a little Puerto Rican as well.

|Occupation|
Choreographer and managing his dance studio.

|Sexuality|
Elliot doesn’t really like putting a label on his sexuality, simply because he is more interested with a person’s mind than the gender, so let’s say that he is Sapiosexual.

|Apartment Number|
2A – Beware of the owner.

|Hometown|
Eli was born in Hong Kong, China and lived most of his childhood there then moved to Brazilian Islands for about two years and now he is in a small San Francisco town.


|Height & Weight|
Elliot is about five foot seven and weighs one-hundred and thirty pounds.

|Eyes|
Eli's eyes are a hazel brown color.

|Body Type & Skin Tone|
Athletic. Olive Complexion.

|Hair Color & Style|
Raven Colored. Usually has it spiked up in the front and just gel up the rest of it to match evenly with the spiked front.

|Style|
Eli clothing varies because when he is casually laying around his apartment, he usually wears a t-shirt and pajama pants. When he choreographs, he wears a muscle t-shirt - Either white, black or gray along with a pair of sweat pants and tennis shoes. When Eli is walking on the street or going somewhere, he usually is seen wearing a buttoned-up collar shirt, with jeans - Either black or blue and matching shoes.

|Quirks & Habits|
Eli has a weird habit of biting his nails but then again, he only does that when he really nervous or just sitting down, thinking. When he is angry, he will sometime start to speak Chinese or Spanish – Or he will do it in an argument as well.

|Talents(T) | Strengths(ST) | Skills(SK) |
Eli main talent is dancing but what most people don’t know is that he can also sing. He is also very intelligent, even if he didn’t go to college but kept a 3.8 GPA all throughout high school. Eli is also very creative since he comes up with most of the dance moves and teaches them to people who can’t quite get it down pack. But he teaches them slowly and then they can do the dance in their sleep.

|Flaws/Weakness|
Eli sometimes put too much pressure on himself when it comes to making a deadline for a routine or just about anything. That is his ultimate weaknesses and he can sometime talk too much especially when he is excited about something.

|Hobbies|
Coming up with new, exciting dances moves. | Writing in his journal. | Writing songs. | Collecting Playbills. | Filming himself dancing and posting it on YouTube. |

|Fears|
øEli fears dying, or breaking an ankle and being told that he can never dance again. He also fears losing his parents. Those are his ultimate fears – The others are really not that important.ø

|Secrets|
Most of his dance moves are not originally his own.
His mother had an affair.
Hates blonde headed people.

|Goals/Dreams|
Eli dreams of officially owning his own dance studio. The one he is managing, he is renting out for someone until they get back. He also hopes to get discovered soon – Whether it be for his dance moves, his voice or maybe even both.

Michael Jackson – Keep Your Head Up.
She's lookin' for a job and a finer place to stay,
She's lookin' for the hope in the empty promising,
She's workin' two jobs, keepin' alive,
She works in a restaurant, night and day
She waits her life away
She wipes the tears away

She cries inside every time she feels this way,
And she's dying inside every time her baby cries, no

Keepin' your head up to the sky,
Keepin' your mind up stay alive,
Gimme your wings so we can fly,
(Keep your head up tonight)

Keepin' your head up to the sky,
And we can just rise up tell me now,
Gimme your wings so we can fly

Giving up the life in the birds in the trees
And we're sucking up the air in the earth from under me,
(It's never too late)
I can't even breathe (to see) I can't even see,
(Oh keep) Keep your head up don't give up today,
How long can we wait?
I wish that love would come today

All you need is love,
Tell you I'm know it's comin' soon,
And all you need is just a moment, won't it do,
Keep your head up

Keepin' your head up to the sky,
Keepin' your mind to stay alive
Gimme your wings so we can fly,
(fly away, fly away, fly away)
(Keep your head up tonight)

Keepin' your head up to the sky,
And we can just rise up tell me now,
Gimme your wings so we can fly
(Oh why)

Everybody say the time is borrowed
And hanging down your head just ain't no good
And if you dance and rise above tomorrow
(Give it a chance)
Just give yourself a chance,
Find the circumstance,
Rise and do it again

Keepin' your head up to the sky (Oh God)
Keepin' your mind up stay alive (Oh no)
Gimme your wings so we can fly
(Yeah, yeah!)
Keepin' your head up to the sky,
And we can just rise up tell me now
Gimme your wings so we can fly

(I needed you know, I needed you now)
Keepin' your head up to the sky
(I needed you night right through the day)
Keepin' your mind just stay alive
(I needed you now)
Keepin' your wings so we can fly (Woo! woo!)
(Yeah!)

(I needed you know, I needed you now)
Keepin' your head up to the sky
(I needed you night right through the day)
And we can just rise up tell me now
(I needed you now)
Keepin' your wings so we can fly (Woo! woo! woo!)

Gonna shine his smile on us today
Keep your head up
Gonna shine his smile on us today, today
Keep your head up

Those songs gon' rise on us today, today
Gonna shine his smile on us today, today

(I needed you now, I needed you now)
Those songs gon' rise on us today, today
(I needed you night right through the day)
(I needed you now)
Gonna shine his smile on us today, today
Keep your head up .

Date and Time - April 23, 2014. 5:45 A.M.
Location - His Apartment Building, 2A then The City Dance Studio.




Elliot was up rather early this morning because he was filled with excitement. It was his birthday today and his YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts were getting flooded with Happy Birthday comments. He had just got done posting a YouTube video, thanking his fans for the birthday wishes as he was glad that he had got that over with. Elliot didn't even bother to check to see if he had woke Thomas up or not - Quite frankly, he didn't even care since they another debate last night. It was about the usual Performers vs. Businessmen. He couldn't stand the way Thomas bashed people like himself as he just shrugged the comments off sometimes but last night was the last straw from him.

While walking towards the kitchen, Eli passed Thomas room as he wanted to blast the Air horn in there but didn't because he didn't want to hear his mouth this morning. He walked into the kitchen and pulled a bowl out of the cabinet, along with the last little bit of Lucky Charms and poured them in the bowl, along with some milk. Eli grabbed a spoon and dropped it in the bowl then picked the bowl up and walked over towards the couch, plopping down as he turned on the television.

There was usually nothing good on t.v. early this morning. Nothing but the news and Sportscenter. With an eye roll, he continued flipping through the t.v. and finding the latest episode of America's Best Dance Crew on. "Oh yeah!" He yelled out while leaning back and tuning in. After the episode was over, he turned off the television and rose up from the couch, dropping the bowl in the sink as he then walked towards the bathroom. There, he showered, brushed his teeth and spiked up his hair a little bit. He walked out of the steam-filled bathroom and walked back into his room, where he got dressed in sweatpants and a blue t-shirt with the word dancing in big bold white lettering. He even placing on blue Chuck Taylor's to top everything off.

Eli grabbed his cell phone and sent a text to Hayley. [You still coming to the studio to take pictures, right?] He asked her as he grabbed his bag and slung it over his shoulder. It was now, ten minutes til seven and luckily he didn't have to open up the studio until seven-thirty. His eyes flashed towards Thomas' door again as he knocked upon it and yelled. "Hey! I'm leaving!" He didn't bother hearing what he said as he exited the apartment building completely. Before getting in his 2014 Jeep Cherokee, which was a birthday from his mother - God did he love her even more, he stared up at the window of Ronnie's apartment room and smiled a little while blushing.

Eli doesn't think that Ronnie is all that in to him but he knew that she was the perfect fit for him. He had a huge smile placed upon his face at the thought as he headed towards the Studio now.

There was already other choreographers there when he pulled up and got out of his vehicle. "Happy Birthday!!!" They all screamed while hugging him. "Thanks." He replied back while scrambling through his keys, finding the one that unlocked the doors to open them. Eli held the door to let the choreographers in as he trailed in behind them. "I got this new beat I want us to try out with the class today." One of them said as they all dropped their bags against a wall then started to stretch and exclaimed at what the choreographer just said.

"So, Elliot, what are you doing for your birthday?" One of them asked and all eyes were now set on him. Eli shrugged his shoulders then replied. "Nothing special planned yet." He answered as one of them wrapped their arm around his neck. "Aw, not even with Ronnie?" All of them made kissing noises towards him as he laughed then held his hands up. "We're just friends." Eli said. "Yeah, with benefits." Someone responded as they all ohh and ahh. Eli shook his head with a sigh and walked outside checking his phone to see if Hayley replied to his message earlier.

He damn sure hoped that she knew where the Studio was.

Date and Time - April 23, 2014. 6:10 A.M.
Location - Her Apartment Building, 2B.




The sun filled Hayley's bedroom with bright light as she turned over groaning. " Damn light..." She grumbled as she rubbed her head looking at the time on her phone. Seeing that it was 6:10 the bright blue eyed woman sat up sighing happily, She didn't have any classes and on top of that it was Elliot's birthday.With that she pushed herself up from her bed that not to long ago had her blissfully tangled in her bed sheets. She made her way out of her room and shuffled her still sleepy self to the bathroom where she went through with her daily hygiene. With that done and out of the way Hayley made her way pass the small living room and into the kitchen where she took out her small concoction of Ice tea and whiskey from the fridge.

She took a couple of small sips savoring the smokey tea flavor the two liquids made and that cool yet burning sensation that slid down her throat as she swallowed. " Ah, that's a good pick me up in the morning." She said to herself as she looked at the time, it was 6:25 now so Hayley made her way over to the bathroom once more for a quick shower. Once she was done with that she got dressed in her outfit for the day and proceeded to fetch her camera. Once she made sure she had everything that's when her phone vibrated in her pocket, it was a text from Elliot. [You still coming to the studio to take pictures, right?] Hayley's fingers swiftly moved over the key pad. [ Yes, Of course. I was just leaving the apartment now, see you in 20. Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!]

The bright eyed woman made her way to the front door but stopped in her tracks then walked backwards to her brothers room. " Yo, Bro I'm heading out, If your going out don't forget to lock up, love yeah!." Hayley shouted the last two words as she walked out the apartment after grabbing her motorcycle helmet that sat next to the door. Hayley ran down the steps and out to her motorcycle where she placed her camera into the small compartment that was attached to the side of her bike. She quickly tied her hair up into a messy bun to avoid helmet hair and then slipped on the helmet mounting her bike. A few minutes passed as she let the engine run before she took off down the street with a loud roar of her engine. It didn't take her long to hit morning traffic but sure enough it was not that bad, yet.

She was at the mighty bean in less then 15 minutes where she parked her bike in the back and strapped her helmet to her side as she walked in. Hayley let her hair down shaking it out softly until it fell perfectly straight then walked up to the small line at the counter. She hadn't bother to look around the cafe since her sights was set on the cupcakes behind the counter. Once it was her turn up at the counter, Hayley quickly ordered two coffees to go and leaned over the counter whispering something into the cashiers ear who just happen to be an acquaintance of hers. The woman behind the counter smiled and quickly pulled a small brown bag from the back and handed it to her. Hayley took it carefully and paid what she owed before making her way over the door but before she could leave she saw two Familiar people sitting at a table.

It just happened to be Allie and Thomas, " Hey you two, What's up? " Hayley looked at the clock on the cafe's wall before she looked back at them. "Ah, sorry guys I'll catch you later. I'm off to the dance studio down the street to snap some pics and give Elliot a birthday present." Hayley carefully held up the brown paper bag before heading out the door. Hayley quickly made her way to her motorcycle where she carefully placed both cups of coffee on the seat and took out her camera placing it around her neck then grabbed the coffees again with the brown bag held in between her teeth. Hayley was going to walk the rest of the way to the studio since it wasn't that far from the cafe and so she did.

Once there she used her foot to push the door open and walked in spotting Elliot right away. " A wittle elp pwease?" Hayley asked the best she could the brown bag blocking her form speaking properly as she held out the coffees to him. After he grabbed them Hayley quickly turned around pulling out a chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting, rainbow sprinkles and a blue candle on the top. She lit the candle with her lighter and turned back around holding it out to him. " Happy Birthday~!" She half shouted with a goofy smile on her face.

Date and Time: April 23rd, 2014 at 3:49 in the morning
Location: Her, Maddie's, and Ben's apartment|1A


Ronnie has been up since two in the morning getting ready for her music cover for her music channel. Sure, she should have done it earlier in the day but, she was busy doing the editing a video for her main channel and her main channel was her baby, her favorite and she never missed a day on her main channel and she certainly wasn't going to start now. Besides, she did start early to start editing the video, she just had no idea that she asked so many goddamn questions for her 'Dare the Brit' video. Plus, in that video she had to go out of her 'YouTube' room a total of thirteen times to go mess with her roommates, friends, and go up to random people who just so happened to be walking by just to ask them a question or dare them to do something. Which took a lot of energy and time out of her. But, that didn't matter now. She had a song to cover and the video had to be up tomorrow.

She spun her piano so that it wasn't facing the wall, but towards the rest of the room and the three cameras she had set up around the small piano she had just gotten about a month ago. She set the camera up in front of the small black piano and focused on the keys only, only showing some of her body but not her face. She focused her other two small cameras on each side of the piano so the keys were showing and the viewers could see her playing. Seeing that so people didn't believe that it was her really playing in some of her other videos. She let down the black screen behind her and let it fall down to the ground before she finally sat down and pressed record on all of her camera. She cleared her throat and cracked her fingers before she started playing her favorite song to play on the piano, at least for now, Say Something. She didn't have the sheet music, of course. Seeing that she always forgot to get it before a video, so she had to do it from memory and from what she heard when she listened to the song over and over... and over again. She closed her blue eyes and allowed herself to just start playing, forgetting that she was even recording. Before she knew it she had finished the song and sighed before pressing the stop button on all of her cameras. She put her baby upright piano but in place and started moving the cameras to a place where she could stand and start singing the lyrics, which was right next to her piano. She slid the black background behind her before fixing her hair the strands of hair she had left out of her bun before fixing her small black dress and clearing her throat.

She pressed start once more on the camera before she took her eyes off the floor and looked towards the camera as she started sing. "Say something, I'm giving up on you. I'll be the one, if you want me to. Anywhere I would've followed you. Say something, I'm giving up on you." Before long her eyes were looking away from the camera and to the side before looking back down as she continued. She already knew that some people were going to say they loved how she was giving off that fact that she was either afraid or trying to be vulnerable. In all honesty, she wasn't trying to do anything. It just happened once she started singing. As the song continued, she could feel herself getting chocked up every once and a while from thinking about things that had happened to her in her past from not speaking to her mother in almost ten years, to not being able to be there for her twin sister when the car crash happened, to even thinking about what happened between her and Ash. Sure, she was pissed off at the guy but, he still was the first guy she had really fallen for and getting over him wasn't easy.

When she finished she turned off the camera for a moment only to grab a chair and be able to her address her audience before signing off. She started the camera one last time as she made a funny face and chuckled. "Geez, who knew a song could make you look back and see how much your childhood sucked? I didn't know until I sung that song. Anyway, you guys asked me to do a song that was a little more calm and, for lack of a better word, depressing as fuck. And there you go, one sad song all wrapped up with a pretty little pink bow. As always, don't forget to give me a big thumbs up and click the subscribe button right here, She said as she pointed to the corner where she was going to add the box. "And you can follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and everything else in the section below. And I will see you beautiful Bondies later." She put her hand over the camera's lens before pushing the off button. "Alright, fun part over. Now I have to do actual work." She said to herself as she grabbed one of the cameras that had most of the parts of the piano.

For the next two hours, she was editing the video; Adding all the parts together, making everything in black and white and adding a little editing on her face to make it look a little blurry. She didn't even know what time she fell asleep, all she really knows is that she had finished the editing and was getting ready to push the gray upload button but, before she presses it, she decided to lay her head down for only a moment to rest her eyes.

Song|Young Volcanos: Fall Out Boy



"Um, Ronnie? Ronnie, wake up. Veronica Madeline Bond, wake up! We have work to do!" Ronnie groaned as she heard her half-brother calling her as he was shaking her softly. She tried to ignore him, hoping that he would go away. But, that never was his style. "Ron, we have work to do, presents to get, a band to confirm."


"For?" She asked as she kept her face facing away from her brother. "Um, your little boyfriend's birthday." Ronnie let out a chuckle and shook her head before finally lifting up her head and looking towards William who was holing two cups of coffee, a latte for him and black coffee for her. She smiled gratefully towards him before reaching out for the coffee and taking a sip. She sighed before setting it down next to her Mac computer and turning back towards the man. "I don't have a boyfriend, Will. You know that."

"You know, black hair, a little young, well younger than you anyway. Um, Asian..--

"You mean Elliot?! Please, he and I are just mates, that's it." Will chuckled before answering his half-sister. "Mates indeed." Ronnie could feel the blush rush to her cheeks as she turn towards her computer and saw that her video was uploaded. Huh, maybe she did upload it after all. "Look, what do you want? Didn't I tell you yesterday that Allie and Tom have everything handled? All I need to do is keep Elliot busy for the rest of the day until they're ready." The Brit said to the man as she started to look at all the comments on her new video. Most were positive but, of course there was always those few couple of hate comments that she had learned to ignore. "Oh, you have to keep him occupied. How are you going to do that?" He asked with a smirk as he wiggled his eyebrows and nudged the woman softly. Ronnie just rolled her eyes once more as she got up and headed out of the room to her actual bedroom with her brother not far behind with a smirk still on his face. She grabbed out an outfit for the day from her closet before looking towards her brother. "Y'mind, I kind of have to take a shower."

William just raised his hands up as he walked out. "I'll call you later, Ronnie." He said loudly as he headed out of the apartment, but not before putting their emergency key on their kitchen counter. "Yea, whatever." She said before walking into the shower with her clothing laid perfectly on her bed.

She was out of her room about forty-five minutes later but, before she did leave she looked in her full length mirror to make sure she looked presentable. She turned to the side and flattened the winkles in her black shirt and leather jacket and fixing the jeans that hugged her curves. She smirked and nodded towards her reflection before heading to the side of her bed and slipping on her pair of black heels. "Perfect." She said to herself as she grabbed one of her hats and headed out of her room, only stopping in the kitchen to grab her bag and the emergency key so she could put it back in their original spot. She sipped on her black coffee as she sighed in bliss. When she was outside their door, she put the key back before walking down the small staircase and out the door into the sun. She slid on her glasses and saw her best friend, Willow leaning against the newspaper stand right next to their apartment. "So, here are your emails from this morning. She said as she handed her a few emails from other YouTubers who lived in or near San Francisco. "Ok, awesome. I'll read them later, so anything else?"

"Well, yea. You need to text Elliot..--"

"What?! Why?

"Because, he's your friend and it's his birthday. And you shouldn't let one little mistake ruin your friendship with him. You guys have chemistry but, if you don't want to admit it fine. But, you at least own him one goddamn text message on his birthday." Willow said as she kept poking her friend's chest to make her point. Ronnie sighed as she looked down. "Fine." She mumbled under her breath. "I'm sorry, what was that, love?"

Ronnie scoffed a bit before answering her friend. "I. Said. Fine." She told her friend before she pulled out her phone and started texting her friend. Before she could send it, Willow grabbed her phone to see what she said. "Hey, Elliot. Happy Birthday," Willow raised an eyebrow and looked up at her best friend before shaking her head. "Okay, this. Is pathetic. You're suppose to keep him busy, not push him into the friendzone! Okay, here let me do it.

Ronnie tried grabbing her phone, but seeing that Willow was 6'2, she always used her height to her advantage. The taller girl gave Ronnie back her phone but, before she could read what Willow had sent. She, of course deleted it. "Here ya go, Ronnie." She said with a smirk on her face while Ronnie flicked her off. "Okay, funny. What'd you send him?" The redhead just shrugged before walking away from her, knowing fully well that she was going to start walking and catch up with her. Ronnie just cursed under her breath before catching up with him. "I'm serious, what did you send him. I think he's seeing someone and I don't need to be known as the home wrecker in our group of friends." Willow just rolled her eyes before scoffing. "Oh please, who? And, if he was dating someone then why would he sleep with you?" Ronnie covered her friend's mouth. "Be louder, what don't you? And, who knows? Guys are testosterone fueled, most of them would fuck anything with a heartbeat. And I think he might be seeing this one girl who lives in his building. They spend enough time together, it makes sense."

Willow just started laughing before rolling her eyes. "Eli isn't like that and you know it. Now, c'mon, lets go listen to every vinyl record we can find."

"Thanks, this is just what I need to get my mind off of stupid guy drama." She said as she removed her sunglasses and entered their favorite record store. "That's why I only go for girls, my friend." Willow said as she entered behind her best friend, chuckling softly about the text she sent Elliot.

[Happy Birthday, Elliot. If you're not busy later, we should meet up later. I have a big surprise for you.]

Location - Leaving The City Dance Studio with Elliot.




Hayley couldn't help but to laugh at Elliot's little reaction. "Okay, just set up anywhere and enjoy." Hayley grabbed her coffee off the table and took a sip before setting it back down and pulling her camera off her neck. " Okie Dokie Captain~" She responded with a salute and a chuckle as she began to uncap the lens of her camera and wiped it down good. She began to take pictures of the dancing group making sure she got everyone and every good move they made. Hayley stopped when the music stopped and began to examine her photos only having one or two blurry shots out of like 30 pictures.

"Get any good pictures?" Hayley quickly looked up to see Elliot leaning up against the wall and she was about to open her mouth to speak when she was interrupted by the birthday boy. "Hold that thought." The bright eyed woman just rolled her eyes smiling at his silliness. With that the group began to dance again and Hayley quickly rose off her butt and took more pictures. Another hour went by and Hayley had just finished her coffee when Elliot came back to her side. "Sorry about that."

" It's alright Birthday Boy and to answer your question earlier, Yes I did get some good Pictures, a whole lot of them in fact." Hayley capped up the lens of her camera again and threw her empty coffee cup away before she exited the studio with Elliot.
"So, did you walk here? You really shouldn't do that. Come on...I'll give you a lift back or to wherever you want to go." The young woman pointed down to her Motorcycle helmet that was strapped on her hip. " I parked my bike behind the Bean and walked the rest of the way. It would have been a disaster if I drove with all these things haha, Oh and plus it was a short walk from there to here." She explained as she climbed into his jeep. " Oh, and since you ever so kindly offered there is one place I need to go real quick before back to the Bean, Member that home decoration store a few blocks down? Mind if we stop there real quick?"

Hayley quickly buckled up after Elliot told her too and leaned back in the passenger seat enjoying the air that blasted in her face. "So, did you enjoy the class today?" Hayley kept her eyes closed as she listened to Elliot speak. " It was very energetic~ Every one was real good today." After a good 10 minutes Hayley felt Elliot's jeep come to a stop and she opened an eye. " Already here?" With that she quickly unbuckled and hopped out of the car. " Give me a sec, I'll be right back!" She shouted from outside the car waving her hand in the air like a mad person. After a good 5 minutes Hayley reemerged from the store with a bag in hand as she climbed back into the jeep setting the bag in between her feet as she buckled back up. " Alright Onward to the Bean! I have not eaten yet and I want a Muffin!" She said as she pointed her finger forward rather dramatically while her other hand rested on her stomach. As Elliot drove Hayley sung to some songs that came on the radio but then stopped and a huge grin appeared on her lips. " Soo, Eli~ When are you going to see your little Love bug Ronnie?" She teased making a heart in mid air with her finger.

Rose groaned loudly as bright lights suddenly flickered on, the white lights blinding her even with closed eyes.

“What the fuck Tarren turn the damn lights off” Rose snapped harshly. She didn’t expect the girlish giggle to be the response. Slowly Rose’s eyes opened only not to see her bedroom but the green and metal interior of the Monster Energy trailer. She snapped up into a sitting position, banging her head on the metal bunk above her. She cursed loudly only to receive another giggle, whom by looking over Rose saw it was June Everetts, trainer and fellow biker.

“Hey lazy ass why didn’t you go home last night?” June asked. Rose groaned, she hadn’t meant to fall asleep in the trailer it just kinda happened. Shit! Tarren is going to have her head, she didn’t even phone him to tell him where she was. Damn his over protectiveness.

“I didn’t mean to fall asleep but in my defense you were a tyrant yesterday” Rose snapped referring to June’s less then pleasant training yesterday. “What time is it?”

“6:45am, training starts at five this evening” June answered, leaning against the metal wall beside the tool box.

“Shit! Sorry I can’t make it I’m going to my friend’s birthday tonight” Rose said while scurrying around, grabbing her phone, wallet and jacket. She didn’t have time to change she had to go. June just nodded her head and watched as Rose rushed out of the trailer. She hopped on her bike and took off. It took her actually seven minutes at top speed to get back and during the trip Rose almost fell asleep. She decided to stop at the Might Bean. She parked her bike and went inside only now noticing that she still had her dirt biking boots on and was majorly sporting Monster Energy with her t-shirt, jacket and hat. Good lord why? Sighing she went up to the counter, there being no line thank god, she order a chai tea and an apple turnover.
The worker’s seemed to be on the ball today because she got her order almost instantly. She took her drink and food and glanced around knowing that someone she knew would be here. Someone was always here. Then she saw a group of her friends and made her way over to them, pulling up a chair and planting herself with the group.

“Why hello everyone" she greeted then took a bite of her apple turnover. Gah! Fricking heaven in her mouth. She listened to what Thomas said.

"Awesome".

Date and Time: April 23rd, 2014
Location: Vinyl Records and Thomas' and Elliot's Apartment|2B


"Oh, how about this album. It sends off this whole sexual, love makin' vibe, you know? Somethin' you need in your life." Willow said as she showed her close friend the Sigur Ros album titled Takk Veronica just rolled her eyes as she grabbed the vinyl record and set it back down. "Shut up. And beside, I already have this album. That was the vinyl I gave to Elliot, remember? It was about a month ago...ring any bells?" Ronnie asked as she continued walking through the lanes of indie bands. Willow just shook her head before looking up, trying to remember. "Oh, right! And the only reason you got it back is because you saw it the morning after you guys..--"

"Willow! Blood hell, can you please shut up. God, I knew I shouldn't have told you." The Brit said as she looked towards the records. "Ronnie, c'mon. I'm just teasing you, you know that. I'm just happy that you're actually moving on from Ashley and to someone better." Willow said as she stepped in front of the older woman with a soft smile on her face. Ronnie just sighed before pushing her aside as she began grabbing some albums that caught her eye from just the names of the bands and even how simple or perfect covers looked to her. "I'm not 'moving on' to someone better, it was a one time thing and mistake, he knows that." The girl shrugged as she and her friend walked to the counter to pay. Willow scoffed in annoyance at her best friend's reluctant just to admit that she actually felt something Elliot. "Hey babe. Hey Ronnie, what's up?" Willow's wife, Hunter said as she began ringing up all of the two girls' vinyl records. "Hey, Hunt nothing much. Your wife's just harassing me about my love live." Hunter just chuckled as she shook her head. "You mean, your none existent love life." Willow chuckled a bit before covering her mouth with her hand as she tried to stop the laughing. Oh, how the two lovebirds loved messing with their best friend.

Ronnie just rolled her eyes before flipping off Hunter. Hunter just blew the Brit a kiss as she handed the girl her two red bags of records. "See you next week, love." Hunt said with a smirk on her face before jumping over the counter to wrap her arms around her wife and lean up to give her a small kiss on the lips. And when it started to last longer than a couple of seconds, Ronnie rolled her eyes before clearing throat. "Excuse me, lovebirds. Willow, you're still on the clock, meaning kiss on your own time." She said as she crossed her arms in front of her chest with a smirk as she spoke to them with obvious sarcasm in her voice. Willow pulled away as she rolled her eyes and let go of her wife.

"Fine, I'll see you at home, babe." The Jamaican said as she started pulling away only to be pulled back into the arms of Hunter. "Alright, fine. Ronnie has you for now, but remember you're mine tonight. Got it? Hunter said with a smile on her face as she kissed her girl once last time before letting her go and going back over the counter. Ronnie smirked as Willow returned to smirk. Ronnie handed the taller girl her bag before waving to Hunter who just tilted her head up and returned to her headphones which was blasting classic rock. As the girls headed outside, they took a seat on a bench right in front of the record store. "So, I know you're bluffing."

"About?"

"Texting Elliot. I know, you're lying. You didn't text him." She said as she looked at her friend with a look of triumph on her face. "What makes you think I'm lying?"

"The fact that my phone has been silent this whole ti..--" Ronnie said as her phone started to vibrate. Willow started to smile as she heard the phone go off. Ronnie looked at her bag before licking her bottom lip and sighing. She reached for her phone before reading it, trying to hide the smile on her face. "My word, Veronica Bond, are you blushing?" Ronnie looked down before shaking his head. "He's just being nice." She said as she unlocked her phone and started to respond. [I'll meet you at your apartment and be ready to go. You know how I feel about waiting.] She sent the text before putting her phone back in her bag and getting up. "I should get going, I said I'd meet him at his apartment."

Willow chuckled. "Okay, have fun." Ronnie started walking away before hearing her friend rush up behind her. "Here, just in case." She said with a smirk as she slipped something her friend's back pocket. "What are you," Ronnie put her hand in her back pocket only to realize what it was and looked at her friend as if she just told a bad joke. "Really? Really, Willow?" Willow just winked before heading back into the record store to spend time with her wife. Ronnie rolled her eyes at her idiot best friend before walking towards Elliot's apartment, not even realizing that she was fixing her hair and her outfit the whole time. She only stopped when she got a text from her 'brother', Ben or as she liked to call him, Benny. [Hey Ronnie, what's up? Didn't here you this morning. Will I see you a the party tonight?]

She started typing back. [Hey, Benny. Nothing much, Willow was being a pain in my ass but other than that, just figuring out what to get Elliot for his birthday. Oh, and I know you didn't hear me, I finally finished sound proofing the whole room, after what? Two years? I'm meeting up with someone but, meet me before you head to the party.] And send. She had yet to tell Ben about the whole...thing between Ronnie and Elliot. Not because she didn't want to but, because she already knew that he was skeptical of Eli and she didn't want to give him any reason not to like him. Right when she was about to put her phone away, she got a text from her ex-fiance about some small movie role in a local indie flick. Sure, she would do it but, she wasn't worried about that right now. When she entered Elliot's building she made half way up the stairs before noticing Koriko. The two weren't best friends, but unlike most of the others she was willing to give to child actress a chance. Not because, she really deserved one but because whenever she bragged about what she did in the past, Ronnie could brag about all the things she has done in the past two years alone because of her 'fame' as some called it.

Ronnie was tempted to just walk up next to her and wait for Elliot to answer the door for whatever reason Kori was there... But, that would be awkward. Hell, for all she knew maybe it was something private and important. "I mean, maybe they're together or something." She thought to herself as she began walking down the stairs and out the door. She sighed before taking a seat on a stone bench set right in between the two apartment buildings. She pulled out her phone and started texting Elliot. [I'll be outside, seems like you have company.] She sent before going on her social networking sites to see what was going on in the world as she waited, like an idiot for her friend to come outside.

Location - His apartment building, 2B.





Elliot looked down at his phone and seen that Ronnie had sent him a text. 'Company?' He thought to himself with a raised brow. Soon, a knock was heard over his door as he thought that Ronnie was trying to surprise him. "Oh, Ronnie, you always seem to..." But it wasn't Ronnie who was behind the door, it was Koriko. His brows furrowed a little as he wondered why she had stopped by his place. First Hayley, now Koriko? Eli hopes that Ronnie doesn't think of him as a player or something.

A soft sigh escaped over his lips as he looked down at his watch, time was ticking fast. "Oh, come on. Ronnie is waiting for me downstairs so better make this quick." He said towards Koriko as he walked into his apartment for a brief moment, grabbing his Jeep keys and cell phone. Elliot closed the door behind him and locked it then waved for Koriko to follow him down the stairs. "So, what is that you wanted?" He asked towards her, pushing the door towards the outside, seeing Ronnie sitting on a bench, alone.

He turned towards Koriko and put his index finger over his mouth, signaling for her to keep quiet. He sneaked up behind Ronnie and covered her eyes with his hands. "Guess who?" He had asked in a playful tone then turned his gaze back towards Koriko. He removed his hands from over Ronnie's eyes then sat down beside her. "Sorry, Koriko. What is that you wanted again?" He had asked, again. When Ronnie was around, she was his only focused - Nothing against anyone else or anything.

Location - Her apartment.


Smiling when he opened the door, she went to speak. She was paused however, when he moved about before walking out the door. Following him down the corridor, she tried starting again. "Actually, Elliot, I was j-." Okay, so he interrupted her again. This was seriously beginning to bother her. Pulling the hem of her dress in frustration, she watched as he went over and scared Ronnie. Yeah, this was a bother. This was going to be embarrassing around Ronnie, seeing as she wasn't on the best of terms with the girl.
Finally she could speak! Letting out a sigh, she smiled slightly. "Um, this is going to seem like a bit of an odd question," she murmured, running a hand through her hair briefly. "But I was just wondering... uh... what kind of music are you into?" She paused, listening to his answer, glancing at Ronnie. Well good, she didn't seem outwardly angry or... whatever it was she usually seemed to feel towards Kori. She grinned. "Thank you Elliot!" she smiled, giving a little clap and hopping on her feet. She said a quick goodbye, before turning and dashing away. She needed to buy him some CDs like now so she could wrap them and such before the party. She browsed through the local music store, before picking up three CD cases, all of which had the name of groups that Elliot had mentioned. Smiling to herself, she walked to the cashier and paid for them.
Heading back to her apartment, she unlocked and went in. Hold on, did they even have any wrapping paper? Hmm... Making her way to her room, she went through her stationary. Finding a large sheet of green paper, praying he liked the colour, she took out another, smaller, sheet of yellow paper. Hmm... now, if she was getting crafty about this, that would mean she was showing interest, right? That was bound to look good to everyone else. Or so she hoped. She cut out a series of stars and carefully glued them down before wrapping the cases and adding one of her old hair ribbons, a black one. It looked alright, she supposed. Too late to think about that now, she'd spent an awful lot of time and it was nearly time for the party. Scanning her clothes, she decided on a simple baby doll [url]dress[/url]. She briefly wondered where Allie was, hadn't she asked Kori to give her a lift?

Date and Time: April 24th, 2014, Five to Six A.M.
Location: Apartment 1A, then the Mighty Bean


The night had been a blur of drinking strange concoctions and dancing and laughing at jokes she didn't find funny. Maddie vaguely remembered meeting the birthday boy, Elliot, and an even more vague memory of getting home flitted through her mind. Glancing about her room, Maddie realized the room was trashed. Clothes were everywhere, objects knocked over or worse, broken. Maddie looked sadly at a glass figurine that lay smashed on top of her nightstand. It had once been a guitar, representing the many years she'd attempted to learn such a trivial skill, but now it was nothing more than shards which Maddie made no attempt to pick up. Really, any attempt at all was slow and awakward; she could feel liquids sloshing around as she flopped onto her stomach and paused to giggle at the foggy memory of drinking it all. She hadn't drank that much or had that much fun since she turned twenty-one, but she didn't regret it as much as she thought she might. Maddie had hoped it would be a night to remember, but she woke up with only bits and pieces of things she had considered to be her imagination. More so than anything, she had a killer migraine and felt more hungover than Charlie Sheen.

Maddie eventually fell back to sleep, sprawled on her floor on a pile of clothes that smelled faintly of alcohol. She was awoken by the alarm on her phone, though it seemed miles away, and couldn't remember falling out of bed, or maybe she crawled, she wasn't sure. Her head was swimming in a sea of aches, but she managed to get herself into a sitting position and rubbed violently at the sleep in her eyes. This action gave way to purple spots in her eyesight, but these were ignored as she moved slowly to turn off her alarm. It's blaring noise interrupted her thoughts, but she was under the assumption that there were no thoughts to be had. At this particular moment, there was only sleepiness which she absently connected to a hangover. Her tongue moved over her lips and she was reminded of the dryness that plagued her mouth.

"Clothes. . ." She mumbled, standing and moving sluggishly toward her dresser. She tried to think about an outfit, but the thought disappeared just as fast as it had shown up. She wanted to sit down, to fall back into dreamless slumber, to do anything but go to work. Maddie wanted to do absolutely nothing, and stay that way for an eternity, but even this thought seemed to great for her throbbing skull. "I need to get dressed," she told herself blankly, pulling at fabrics in the drawers. She carefully pulled herself into a pair of jeans and a white tank top, accompanied by a loose fitting hoodie and her Sperrys. Everything seemed to be in slow motion. She didn't even bother looking in the mirror. No way.

Maddie thought she was running late, but her clock read 5:50 AM in serious, red numbers. She thankfully made it out of the apartment in time to avoid Ben's alarm and slip on her apron at the Mighty Bean. She was even early enough to make a slightly cold cup of coffee, cold enough to gulp down, and munch on a stale chocolate chip bagel. The food and drink eased her head and the growling of her stomach, which she hadn't noticed, but Maddie desperately wished for some sort of pain medicine. She rested her elbows on the counter and ran her hands through her hair, frustrated at the thought of forgetting to brush it. She prayed the rest of the day would be better, but a voice inside her head shouted that it wouldn't.

Ronnie started looking over her phone until she felt someone come up behind her and cover her eyes. She raised her eyebrow as she heard the voice of Elliot. "Guess who?" She smiled before feeling his hands and moving up his arm. It wasn't until he removed his hands and started talking to Koriko that she let her smile loosen a bit. When he sat down beside her, she moved over a bit to make more room for him. She looked towards the other girl with a raised eyebrow as she started talking to the man next to her. "Um, this is going to seem like a bit of an odd question, but I was just wondering... uh... what kind of music are you into?"

That's what Kori needed to ask him all of a sudden? Ronnie turned back to her phone as she let the two talk as she responded to the text she had just gotten from Ben. [I'll be at the Daff from 5, see you there? Bring some food :D] She smirked and chuckled to herself before pressing send. {Sure, I might be a little late but, I'll be there.} She turned back towards Elliot hoping that this conversation wouldn't take too long.

Elliot didn't want to seem like a jerk or mean but Koriko kind of asked him a stupid question. But being the kind of person he was, he answered her anyway. "I like anything but modern rap." He made a disgusted look plastered on his face - But it was the modern rap part that made him make that face and nothing else. As his watched Koriko trek off, he turned his full attention back towards Ronnie and smiled. "She is a little weird, no?" He chuckled because it was really out of his character to talk about anybody.Ronnie shrugged. "I don't know, it was a strange question but she was probably asking for your birthday." She told him as she looked back at her phone for a brief moment before putting her phone back in her bag and looking towards Elliot, who's eyes were fixed on the ground before turning back towards her. His eyes looked towards the ground then back up at Ronnie. "So, what's the plan?" He asked her while literally popping up out of his seat. Elliot wondered who she was texting but it was really none of his business so he didn't even bother to ask. Even though the question burned inside of him. A soft, hushed sigh escaped over his parted lips as he waited for Ronnie to answer his question, or at least say something.

She looked up from her phone before looking up at the younger man. When he asked what the plan was. Ronnie, once again just shrugged "In all honesty, Willow sent the the text. And, I truly thought you'd be busy today, so I didn't plan this far ahead." The woman got up from her seat as she brushed off the back of her jeans and put her phone back in her bag after responded to a text from her brother, from Willow, and from Jay about the role he was sure was 'perfect' for her. Elliot looked at Ronnie and laughed a little with the shake of his head. "Well, I was suppose to be busy until I got the text from you then I got someone to close up the studio for me." He watched as she got up from the bench and started texting. As she sent the very last text to her friend Tyler, who she was working on plans for a collab with in the near future. Seeing that they lived five "You sure are very popular today." Eli patted her on the back softly with the palm of his hand. When he patted her on the back and ting of electricity go up her spine before she smirk. "Popular's not even the word, busy and flustered it more like it. But, that doesn't matter. Today is your day, no complaining." She said as she shook her head and took a deep breath to help relax herself. "We could just explore, look around. Oh! We should go to Ghirardelli Square. It's close to the beach and they have this cute little dessert shop and this awesome local pub I went to back when all those YouTubers came to town back in November." Ronnie said as she fixed the strap of her bag on her shoulder before looking at Elliot. "I mean, we don't have to. You're the birthday boy after all, youngster." She said with a smirk as she ruffled his hair a bit.

He stuffed his hands in his pockets, walking alongside with Ronnie, listening to make suggestions on where they should go. He nodded his head and started thinking but then she did the unthinkable - She touched his hair. Not just touched it but went over and beyond to ruffle it a little bit. "Whoa! Whoa! You do not mess with a man's hair!" He shouted in a joking manner. Elliot couldn't really be serious around Ronnie but he could be himself. Everything seem to disappear when he is around her. His head lowered as he tried his best to shake away the current thoughts from his head, eyeing her once more. "So, direct me towards the Ghirardelli Square. Do we have to drive?" He asked while stopping in his tracks, turning heel to face her as rocked on the balls of his feet, waiting for an answer. She looked back at Elliot as he stopped to before answering his question. "It's about fifteen minutes to walk, ten minutes by cable car, and seven minutes to drive. Not that long any way. Your pick." Once they started walking again, she started thinking about what she had gotten him for his birthday, she was sure she had gotten him something but, she wasn't sure what it was. The more the she started to think about it, the closer she was to remembering. "Oh, I almost forgot, with a birthday comes presents." She said in fake despair before smirking.

"But, mine is a secret until we get to the square." She said as she softly grabbed his wrist to get his attention. "But here, you can have this one thing since it's not part of your present," She shuffled around in her bag, moving aside her vlogging camera, her two cell phones; one for her business and one for personal use, and her wallet to grab a small dancer figurine that kind of reminded her of Elliot when she looked at it. It was small but, she had to get it when she saw it when she went on tour with a bunch of other YouTube personalities and they stopped in New York for a couple of days. She was away for almost two months but it was worth it. When she pulled it out and showed it to him, she chuckled before feeling herself start blushing. She face palmed herself softly with her free hand and chuckled nervously before speaking. "I know it's stupid and it sure as hell isn't as great a bloody car for your birthday, but I couldn't resist. It was just so darling and if you look at it closely, it kind of looks like you." She told him as she tilted her head a bit to the right.

Elliot shrugged his shoulders, basically thinking on what to do. His mind was racing everywhere but then he felt a tingling sensation when Ronnie touched his wrist as his eyes immediately snapped towards. When she started shuffling through her bag, the excitement inside of his body grew as she pulled out a small dancer figurine. "Wow. Thanks, Ronnie." Eli smiled brightly while staring at her in those beautiful eyes of hers. "No problem." She said with a smile as she shrugged a bit.

He handed her the figurine. "Keep it in your purse, I don't want to lose it as we walk towards the Square." Elliot said with a smile as he went on to grab Ronnie's hand without even thinking about what he was doing. She nodded and put the little toy back in her bag before feeling Elliot's hand move to hers. She cleared her throat a bit before sighing. It was weird but, she couldn't pull her hand away. Sure, she wasn't used to a man holding her hand even when she was in a relationship but, it didn't mean she didn't like it.

Once they started walking again, he responded to Ronnie's previous statement. "It's alright. That wasn't my real present from you but it still matters and I am happy you brought me something that symbolizes me." Eli spoke those words softly towards her as he couldn't help but blush and tried his best to hide but then thought what the hell. He was really enjoying his walk with Ronnie and he squinted his eyes then pointed his index finger. "Does that sign say Ghirardelli Square?" He asked towards Ronnie, turning his head to face her. "I can't see that far." He commented as he glanced back towards their destination. Ronnie looked towards the sign as she shielded her blue eyes from the bright sun. She smiled when she saw the huge but, hard to notice Ghiardelli sign. She nodded towards him as she smiled. "Yup, that's it." She looked down at their hands before clearing her throat softly and slowly removing her hand from his. Whatever was there before, whatever ounce of romance was there, she had shaken out of her. She had to remind herself that what happened and what they did was a mistake. A one time thing that was behind them.

She scratched the back of her neck as she walked into the square, not really waiting for Elliot to walk beside her. As she looked down at the ground, she slid her hands in the back pockets of her jeans and bit down softly on her bottom lip as she continued walking towards the large map in the middle, not far from where the entrance was. She looked behind her at Elliot before pointing to the map. "Birthday boy's pick." Elliot was a little saddened when Ronnie removed her hand from his. A soft sigh escaped through his lips as he remembers that night, which was a mistake but he felt a little something towards Ronnie after that. He couldn't hold it in anymore - Tonight was the night that he was going to tell Ronnie how he really feels about her, whether shes like it or not. He finally caught up with her then shrugged his shoulders while closing his eyes and pointing his index finger towards a random spot. "There, wine tasting. Sounds nice and elegant." He said, looking at the way they were dressed. Eli shrugged his shoulders again then looked towards Ronnie. "Veronica..." He only used her whole name when it was something serious and boy was this serious. The Brit looked towards him with raised eyebrow. She wasn't used to him, or anyone really calling her Veronica unless she was either in trouble with them or something that they weren't joking around about. She didn't even say anything as she turned and looked up at him.

"I know that the other night was a mistake but..." Ronnie let her eyes fall to her feet as Eli sighed heavily while gulping big and clearing his throat and taking a step closer towards her, placing his hand on her arm. "I like you, honestly. I wish I can shake these thoughts and my feelings away but I can't." Ronnie wanted to look at him but, she didn't even know what to say. She had promised to act like it didn't happen as long as he did the same. And here, he was bringing it up and telling her the same sweet nothings she had heard several times before... Even if Elliot was different, he still was a guy and he still really only wanted one thing. Elliot quirked his lips to the side while turning away from her. "Wow. Didn't think that this would be so hard to do." He said while rubbing the back of his neck with the palm of his hand. When he looked away, Ronnie looked back up before sighing deeply, trying to think of what to say. "Elliot, I..--" She stopped herself as she ran her hand through her short hair. "Elliot, look. I like you, okay? I do. And do I sometimes... imagine about being with you. Yes. But. I'm not willing to throw away our friendship a one night thing that we agreed was just an accident," She grabbed his hand and made him turn back around. "We were drunk, or maybe we weren't. But, either way, we weren't thinking. We were just acting on impulse without thinking of what could happen after. Which is stupid and you might be okay with throwing away our friendship over a spur of the moment but, I'm not tossing out what we have out the window because of a stupid decision we made one night." She wasn't trying to hurt him, she wasn't. This was just the way she dealed with things she didn't want to deal with, she acted somewhat like a bitch, hoping that it would push that person away and make them drop the subject.

Things had gotten awkward between Eli and Ronnie at that very moment but he still listened to her words and turned around. He didn't look at her though, instead, he looked to the ground, still listening. When she was finish speaking, his heart literally dropped to the bottom of his stomach. Her rejected made him feel a little low about himself because he really dreamed of this day and thought it would go a lot better than it really did. A soft sigh came through his partially parted lips as he finally looked up at her, tears swelling up in his eyes. Ronnie looked up at him only to look back down as he started speaking. She knew he was hurt, who wouldn't be hurt after someone just blatantly saying that they weren't interested. She was about to speak but before she had the chance Elliot started talking again.

"Uhmm, you know what, forget the wine tasting event, forget everything." He waved his hands out towards Ronnie and basically stormed off away from her with his head low. He pulled out his cell phone and texted Hayley. [Can you meet me at The Mighty Bean, please?] He pressed the send button then looked up from his phone but not back. Elliot was crushed. His world had been set on fire and Ronnie's words were the gasoline that started it all and she just kept on adding fuel to the fire. Veronica just watched him walk away from her as she down lightly on her lip, trying to find out what had just happened between the two of them. It wasn't like he really wanted to be with her. The were just petty feelings that popped up after he had time to think about that night. "Elliot, come on. Don't be like this." She called after him but, seeing that he just kept walking, she just let out a huff before reaching for her phone and seeing the time. Five. Right on time for her to go see Ben and seeing by what just happened she really could use a talk with her 'little brother'. She ran her hands through her hair before starting to walk in the same direction as Elliot. Hopefully, they weren't heading to the same place.

It was his birthday and he was sad. 'Thanks, Ronnie.' He thought to himself while walking into The Mighty Bean, ordering his usual and taking a seat in one of the secluded corners of the cafê. Eli really tried his best to push the moment that had just happened out of his mind but he cared and liked Ronnie so much, he couldn't. Tears were slowly streaming down his cheeks as he grabbed a napkin and wiped them away. As he waited for Hayley to show up, he pulled out his headphones and plugged them up to his iPhone 5C then planted them in his ears. He went to his YouTube and typed in Just Give Me A Reason by Pink and Nate Ruess then started listening to it.

Elliot honestly wanted to know why Ronnie rejected him. Yeah, it would ruin their kind of ruin their friendship but there has to be someone else or something else but he was leaning more towards there being someone else.

As Ronnie headed back towards the apartments, she just kept thinking about the look on Elliot's face, he truly looked upset. As if she had ripped out his heart and stomped it on the ground. She looked back at her phone as she passed The Mighty Bean and sent a text to Ben, saying she was on her way. [Hey, Benny. I'm on my way now, I should be there in a few minutes.] She slid her phone back in her bag as she headed towards Daff's. When she headed inside the diner, she saw Ben and offered a small smile as she headed over to his table. When she slid into the booth, she rubbed her temples as she lifted her eyes from the table to her friend. "I need advice...about a guy."

For the next hour, she explained what had happened between her and Elliot... she didn't use his name of course, but she did tell him close to anything. No need to tell her about them sleeping together, it wasn't his business anyway. Besides, no need to scar him for life or anything. "So, tell me. How bad of a person am I?" She asked as she looked back up at him.

Hayley had got home about a half hour ago and the muffin she had ate earlier didn't really do much to her stomach. The young woman strolled around her apartment heading towards the kitchen as she pulled out her phone.
[Hey Allie, want to come over and play some PlayStation tomorrow? I got snacks and the aspirin you may need for a hangover because of the party, Anyway, Yeah let me know! ;)] With that Hayley sent the text to Allie as she took out the frozen pizza and popped it in the oven. Yeah she liked Allie a WHOLE lot but Hayley could see how she acted around Thomas. The young woman knew that she was no match to go against Thomas so she kept her distance when the two love birds were together. Hayley believed if they were meant to be then it would happen naturally but if they weren't then I guess that's just how it was.

The blue eyed woman shook the though from her head and decided to play some video games. She quickly turned on her PlayStation and began to play Saints Row 4 as he pizza was cooking. A good 20 minutes passed when she heard the little Ding from the oven's bell. Hopping up from the floor, Hayley all but skipped over to the oven slipping on the mitts and pulling out her delicious pizza. " Come to momma!" She said to herself as she licked her lips setting the steaming hot pizza on the counter.

Hayley couldn't wait for the pizza to cool so she pulled a piece out and blew on it before taking a bite out of it. " Crap!" she cursed as she pulled away, cheese stretching from the pizza to her mouth. The woman quickly chewed trying not to burn her mouth as she poured herself some water with her free hand. Never letting go of the delicious cheesy goodness, Hayley picked up the cup and gulped down some of the cold water to relieve the burning sensation on her tongue. " Ahh, that's much better" At that moment Hayley heard her phone vibrate on the coffee table and she made her way over as she took more bites of her pizza. She picked up her cell and unlocked it seeing that Eliot had text her. [Can you meet me at The Mighty Bean, please?]

Hayley thought it was a bit weird that Eliot would be texting her while he was with Ronnie. She pushed this thought away as she munched away and held the pizza in between her teeth as she sent a text back to Eliot. [ Yeah sure, I'll be there in 10 hun.] After sending the text, Hayley finished her slice of pizza and covered the rest. Grabbing her helmet, keys and wallet the woman headed out her door once more not bothering to turn off her game leaving it paused. Hopping down the steps her stomach now all happy, Hayley walked out the door slipping her helmet on and sitting on her bike turning it on. The bike roared underneath her before she pulled off. In under 15 minutes Hayley was at The Mighty Bean, parking her bike in the back. She walked in with her helmet still on but she removed it once she sat at the same table with Eliot across from her. " What's up Birthday boy, why aren't you with Ronnie?"
