He finally had to face it. The thing that had caused so many panic attacks, caused so many of the cuts on his arms, had kept him awake for so long. And now, here he was. Staring it in the face. He could lie. He could tell her it was a lie made up by Jace, because he was jealous or some shit like that. But he couldn't. Because that would only be putting things off. He couldn't do this for any longer.

He sat down on his bed, hoping to hide the shake in his hands and his legs. And then he nodded. He felt himself tense, waiting for her reaction. Waiting for her to start screaming at him, for her to leave and slam the door, for her to laugh at him. Everybody always said that telling somebody a secret was like a weight off of their chest- but this just felt like another weight on his shoulders, forcing him down. Because how could she ever feel the same? Why would she ever want somebody like him? She liked guys like Jace, who were confident and powerful and everything he wasn't.

She grinned at the mention of a hangover. However she was feeling in the morning, he would be feeling a hell of a lot worse. "I'll force feed some water into you, so it's not so bad. Or, well, I'll try."

As he asked for her help in assembling an outfit, she sat up. "Oh, now we're talking. We should totally try and coordinate, we'll slay everyone else," she said, getting to her feet and retrieving her dress from her bag. She didn't let him see the inside of the bag though, for fear that the state of it would actually make him have a stroke. She had a tendency to just throw everything in and hope for the best. She quickly pulled out the rest of her outfit, before frowning a little.

"On second thoughts, seeing as mine is all black, if we both go all black, we'll look like we're going to a funeral, not on a night out. Right, start showing me options and I'll tell you what I think."

The long pause between his response had confirmed it enough for Bella already but it took her even longer to take in the truth than it'd taken him to admit. She opened her mouth to speak but her lip quivered with anxiety and she couldn't. She felt relieved and elated because all her confused, blurred but affectionate and complicated emotions came into place- it was true. He really did... Part of her couldn't breathe and she was too nervous to speak but she moved over next to him and knelt on the bed before wrapping her arms around him and hugging him tightly, she wasn't quite sure why she did it was incredibly impulsive but impulsiveness was the core of Bella's being and something she'd never learnt to fight. "I...I never thought you would," She admitted quietly stumbling over her words in a manner you never would have heard before, not for Jace or anyone because the truth was she'd never loved him- she'd barely even liked him and she'd admitted that to Jamie a couple of times before but any other thought had evaporated from her mind.

She buried her head in his shoulder just trying to take everything in and letting it sink into his mind that he cared that the reason for all herself doubt and that constant desire to stick out from the crowd to him and be there for him wasn't misplaced or wasted.

He laughed softly and grinned at her happily. "Please do. Ignore everything I say to argue it, don't listen to me- just make me drink water, even if you have to pin me down or something- because I'm too hangover prone to make it out alive without water," He joked although he was actually being quite serious about the matter. "Seriously though," He added quickly.

He nodded in agreement. "That is true- I'll accent whatever I wear with black but I like the dress, it's very Ellie," He told her with a genuine smile as he walked to his wardrobe and went through it. Most of his clothes were more casual than smart considering his personality but he was still stumped. "Ellie...help," He squeaked. "Are jeans acceptable? I was considering my black pair but I didn't know if you'd kill me or not because I always wear them but fuck- I can't coordinate," He groaned dramatically.

He flicked through his t-shirts, not even considering any of his many Green Day shirts for fear Ellie would slaughter him for being so casual and boyish but he wasn't used to thinking about his outfits- he always just went for jeans or some kind of trousers with a t-shirt and a jumper to throw over it, a lot the time he wore shirts and jumpers- that was kind of his typical thing but he had never been good at getting ready to go out, it felt like there was so much more pressure and Nate was just notorious for over thinking and he sighed and gave Ellie a pointed expression as if to say; 'see how useless I am?

The physical contact was oddly reassuring. She didn't hate his guts. She still cared about him. Even as badly as he'd treated her, she still cared. Hearing her stumble over her words was strange- he was so used to seeing her being smooth and good with her words- but yet here she was. He was seeing sides of Bella that he'd never seen before. He couldn't answer her, though. How could he? What did one say to that?

The longer she kept up the hug, the better he felt. He didn't want to move. Her face in his shoulder felt good, and for once, he felt himself relaxing. It was finally out in the open. The thing he'd feared for so long was over and it had ended well. He could hardly believe it. He moved his arm to wrap around her shoulders.

But he knew they couldn't stay there forever. So eventually, he removed his arm. "Bella, we should go if we want to be at yours before your mother comes home," he said gently.

She rolled his eyes at his frustration, going over to his closet. "Jeans are okay, seeing as I'd say the only other pair of trousers you own are probably for a suit, and maybe not even then. Jesus, Nate, you wear a lot of t-shirts," she remarked as she searched his closet. "Don't you own any shirts that aren't t-shirts? Aha!" She produced a white shirt from the closet, holding it up beside him. "Hm, that's a contender. Seriously, though, you don't even have any jackets you could put on over a shirt to dress it up a bit. Boy, we need to go shopping together some time."

"That white shirt is still a bit formal. Here, check your own closet. Do you own any shirts that aren't white or t-shirts? Or even like, a leather jacket or something?" She asked, flopping back on the bed.

She stayed there for a long while perfectly calm and content in his company and she welcomed the arm he put around her the warmth reminded her everything was real and genuine. She pulled away from him as he spoke and sat straight nodding softly. "Yeah, we ought to hurry come to think of it," She mumbled softly bouncing onto her feet and offering him a hand up onto his feet. "I'll get changed there and then we can go straight away, I'll be quick," She promised gently and it was true, Bella was probably the only girl in the world who wore dresses and make-up but could be ready and done within ten minutes- she was as straight to the point as she was with her clothes as she was with everything she ever did.

She couldn't help but softly smile, she felt like she finally had a reason to and it showed in her expression. She was still almost in disbelief but she was more than happy and quite content and even more excited for their night out, she was up on her feet and all smiley which was weird for Bella but probably not a bad thing.

"I think I might wear something more colourful than usual tonight," She thought out loud casually. "Break the mould y'know," She added thoughtfully.

[font=Garamond] "I have shirts too- they're just folded in my drawers. I'm paranoid to wear them in case I stain them but we do need to go shopping- I'm useless at this stuff," He admitted before walking over to his drawers and looking at his shirts thoughtfully searching for one more casual than the one Ellie was still holding. "I don't have a leather jacket but I think I still have a denim one in there- is it on the left by the blue stuff? It should be," He told her turning his head to look over at her. "Would that do?" He asked her. "Or I've got that burgundy wool thing- I could wear that over a shirt..." He suggested dumbly.

He ran his hand through his hair again, clearly grew more agitated by how scruffily it was sitting but he couldn't be bothered to put gel in it yet because when he went down for dinner he could count on his Mother to ask who he was trying to impress or whatever. He did not want that, not in front of Ellie it'd just be embarrassing.

He didn't even want to think about dinner, his mother and Ellie got on well but his mother was a big believer in the humiliation of sons- she'd rip him apart just because Ellie was there to witness it and she knew Nate wouldn't argue back to her or Ellie. He sighed softly and turned to go sit down on the bed voting to trust Ellie's choice instead. "Ellie, my fate is in your hands. I can't do this," He told her childishly.

He didn't think he'd ever seen her smile like that. Even though he knew it was because of him, his mind struggled to fully comprehend that. He'd been telling himself for so long that he could never make people happy, that he could only cause harm. But here she was. Smiling because of him.

"We can just grab your stuff and come back here to get changed, if you'd prefer. And you can stay here tonight if you want. My parents won't mind." His parents wouldn't be likely to notice. He was doing okay, he'd last the night without having a meltdown. He wished that she could stay here, stay away from that woman- but that meant letting her in fully. That meant letting her see the meltdowns, the panic attacks, the self harm, the drinking... It meant her finding out about his parents. And as selfish as the whole thing made him feel, he couldn't let her in that much. Because his demons would make her run, and then he'd be alone.

Even when he felt happy, the depression and anxiety were lurking at the edges, reminding him that this wouldn't last. He'd still end up alone, he'd still end up hating himself. But for now, he could ignore it. Somewhat.

"Bella Swift not wearing black? Dear god, I should call the media," he remarked.

"See, Nate, this is why you need to stop smoking so much weed," she said, rolling her eyes. But she grinned at him so he'd know that she was teasing. She knew that he was probably already worried about dinner, and he didn't need her teasing him any more.

She pulled the denim jacket out of the cupboard, examined it and laid it down on the bed. It wasn't too bad, but not quite right. She turned to his shirt drawer and examined its contents, doing her best not to disrupt his system. She found a short sleeved white shirt and tossed it to him. "Put that on, with the jeans and that jacket you wore to school the other day. The one I complimented. And then tomorrow, we're going shopping, regardless of how bad your hangover is. Think of it as punishment for such bad dress sense," she teased.

She looked at him with a grateful expression; "Thanks Jamie, that'd be cool but only fi you're totally 100% sure you don't mind and it's okay. I can get changed at mine- I'll have enough time but if I could stay, just so I can save a row with her- I'd genuinely really appreciate that," She told him a soft and genuine tone as she stood up and brushed off her shirt where she'd noticed a slight crease.

She laughed gently at his comment and shrugged her shoulders lightly. "I'm feeling it, I'll still wear some black of course- god, I'd die before someone put me in an all colour outfit," She scoffed jokingly grinning over at him as she mentally went through her wardrobe thinking of things she could wear, trying to think of something at least half flattering and something she didn't normally wear. That was one thing Bella hated about herself, when it came to her style with her make-up and clothes she got too comfortable in wearing the darkest shades, heavy eye shadow and natural hair- maybe she ought to jazz it up some time soon and that's what she decided to do and the fact they were going out gave her the perfect excuse.

"Ellie don't you dare bring Mr Marijuana into this- he is a lovely fellow who has brought me into some incredibly concerning but hysterical situations and I will not abandon him in such a sincere time of mutual need," He cried dramatically with large gestures and everything to intensify his emotions. He knew she was kidding but so was he and to be fair, if she wasn't kidding she probably had a point regardless but Nate just wasn't mature enough to move on from that yet.

He nodded at her calmly and at the outfit in approval- he could work with that. He groaned jokingly when she mentioned shopping but gave her a small smirk to illiterate he was kidding. "God, I have to spend two days in a row hanging out with you- seriously?" He teased but he couldn't help breaking into a small smile as he joked with her but he then head his name being hollered from downstairs and he turned to Ellie apologetically for the noise.

"That ululation of bird noises is my Mother's personal language for dinner is on the table, it's also the same noise she makes whenever she discovers a discarded joint," He admitted with a sheepish expression. "But it's dinner I promise, I don't smoke at home or in the gardens anymore, I go 'jogging' instead," He told her with an inverted speech marks gesture when he implied he went jogging. "Gotta work on these old boys haven't I?" He joked pulling a pose as if to show of his muscles but Nate was skin and bones really with slight definition in places but he certainly wasn't in possession of any 'old boys' or biceps as he was dramatically referring to.

He shrugged. "It's no problem- it'll be nice to have someone else around for company," he said. He was just glad that she wasn't going to have to be around her mother. And besides, he'd probably too drunk to be depressed by the time he got home. Not because that was his goal. No, for once he didn't want to drink until he passed out. But he'd been out with them all before and knew that copious amounts of alcohol were generally involved.

"C'mon, then, we better go before she gets back. I can leave this here," he said, dumping his bag on his bed and grabbing his phone and his keys. He held the door for her and headed downstairs. He didn't know if anyone else was home, but he didn't particularly care. They'd probably heard him and Bella talking by that point, anyway. That and they used to practically live in each other's houses, so Bella being there wasn't much of a surprise.

She swatted his arm at the comment about having to spend two full days with her, but laughed, giving herself away. Her laugh didn't fade as Nate's name was called from downstairs, and Nate made some sort of comment about it. Ellie was more than used to it- after all, she did practically live in Nate's house. She'd practically been adopted.

She rolled her eyes at his comment about jogging. "Puh-lease, even I could nearly put you over my shoulder, even with the height difference." She said, looking up at him. "Although, tonight I'll nearly be able to look you straight in the eyes. Got my killer heels out," she said, poking him. "C'mon, I'm starving, and your mom's food is too good to wait for!"

She darted out of his room and started down the stairs, not waiting to see if he followed.

She smiled up at him contently and nodded. "Thank you," She told him once more before leading the way downstairs and heading out the door.

6:30 PM - The Club


As promised, Bella get changed and ready was a quick and painless situation- she chucked on a quirky burgundy dress with black knee high socks and a jacket with her Doc Martens and she was ready to go. Her hair had been straightened that morning and her make-up was always so carefully done it remained flawless now so she hadn't need to re-do anything like that and then afterwards they'd made a quick dash through the back door and into the street's car park so they hadn't bumped into her Mother since she'd been pulling in on their way out and everything was fine.

Bella actually felt ridiculously enlightened and assured for once in her life. She had a bag of her stuff that she'd put behind the bar because technically she was staff and she could get away with that kind of thing and now she was just standing at Jamie's side with a genuine rosy smile on her lips as she looked up at him.

"Hey do you want to grab a drink whist we look for Ellie and Nate?" She asked having to lean towards him and shout over the music so he even stood a chance at understanding her. Over where their bar and sitting booths were the place was a lot more quite and they'd be able to talk and chat properly but where the stood just inside the entrance close to the toilets and the dance floor, the music pumped through the air like an alluring siren, the crowd jumped like a wave to the side of them and on the other side you had a numbing hum of voices and general chatter and movement where people were waiting for the toilet or just generally lingering but compared to a lot of the clubs in town, it was definitely one of the nicer ones and of course Bella knew all the secrets way having worked there for so long now but having worked in other bars, restaurants and clubs too- she'd seen a lot worse and appreciated having a job here, almost. Sometimes it was still pretty shit.

The layout was tidy though, upper class and modern. The lighting was mostly colourful and slightly psychedelic but all the furniture was very dark grey, almost black and it made the club feel slightly less tacky than some. There were large rods of light from all over the place, tall neon LEDs that lit up a dim room with thousands of colours which scanned the room and crawled over people's faces like a fever.

Smartened up and with his hair slickly gelled in a manner that gave him a certain look of maturity, a more attractive quality that his adolescent mind set. He was still laughing and messing around with Ellie even on the walk there but once they arrived at the door he chilled out a bit more, figuring they needed to find Arabella and Nate as quickly as possible really so they could all keep together, he knew as individuals they were all fairly unreliable, reckless and illogical but together they'd always made a decent pack and looked out for one another because even though they weren't a set circle of best friends they'd hung out a lot and they invited each other to one another's parties- they were all good friends to a limited degree and obviously he wanted to make sure everyone was safe and accounted for because it'd only be fun if they were all ok.

"Let's go find them then and Ellie, the games begin now so may the odds be ever in your favour," He joked offering her a three finger salute as they travelled into the club and he looked around for the others turning his gaze over the mass of individuals occupying the large space.

For the first time in his life, he wasn't anxious on a night out. He only had Bella to watch out for, and from where he was sitting, he could see her all of the time. He'd even relaxed enough to have a drink. Just the one though- he didn't want to be drunk before Bella even got off. But eventually she did, and he met up with her.

She had to shout to be heard over the music and once his brain had processed what she had said, he nodded. To avoid losing her, he grabbed her hand and pulled her towards the bar. "Vodka and coke, and whatever Bella's having," he yelled to the server. He leaned against the bar and scanned the crowd, waiting for Ellie and Nate. They were usually an easy enough pair to find.

Ellie had trained herself to walk in heels long ago, so even in the five-inch heels she was wearing, her stride was as confident as ever. It was strange being able to look Nate in the eye without having to tilt her head back or stand up on something, but a good kind of strange.

In response to his comment, she leaned into his ear and whistled the Mockingjay signal, before nudging him in the ribs and striding towards the bar. She spotted them on her way and waved grandly- again, in her heels, she could be seen. She'd gotten them recently, and knew she'd be wearing them a lot more.

"Hey guys!" She yelled, throwing an arm around Bella. "So, are you guys ready to have a good time?" She asked.

Thursday 3rd September – 6:30 PM – Club – Outfit

※ Mood: Surprised - Intense - Nervous
※ Listening To: Pink Floyd
※ With: Jamie
Bella kept close to Jamie because he was the one person she really trusted and when he took a hold of her hand, she held his just as tightly because she was equally as worried about them getting split up but as always not for her own sake but for his. As they were ordering drinks, she felt indecisive about what she wished to drink so she shrugged it off and just asked the bar tender to make it two vodka and cokes.

She turned her head as she heard the other girl holler at them and sling an arm around her and she laughed softly grinning at Nate and Ellie. "Hey Ellie, Hey Nate," She laughed gently at Ellie's obvious entrance and wild hearted greeting. She'd be the same once she'd gotten a drink inside her, she was a slightly uptight person and though she was edgy and strong-willed in far as socialising, she could be a bit uptight but with a push she was really fun. She just had to get herself together and in that frame of mind first.

When her and Jamie's drink arrived, she turned to the bar tender and asked him to make a tab in her name and reminded him about her staff discount so they could get all their drinks a bit cheaper- she figured they could sort out the details and technicalities later about who owed what between the four of them. Though Bella didn't particularly mind anyway, she worked and was paid a lot above the minimum wage because of how much of a good friend she was with the owner- they'd attended a couple of gigs together in the past and when the club got opened up, Bella was instantly offered a shabby job but with incredibly less shabby pay so Bella took it and she was clever with her money, she always had everything saved up in her account so she'd happily by drinks for the others- it wasn't something that bothered her but she stopped thinking about it and looked at the bar tender.

"Hey and put whatever these two want on the tab too," She told him gently with a polite smile before gesturing at Nate and Ellie to order.

Nate laughed as Ellie whistled and nudged him and he teasingly pushed her arm a little before bounding after her when she dashed off to Jamie and Bella and upon noticing their hands he winked at Ellie leaning over just before she addressed them; "It's so like that," before grinning innocently and diving into greeting the others with a cheerful grin and his usual dopey expression.

"Hey guys how's it going?" He asked kindly and as the girls had their little moment he rolled his eyes a bit and looked at Jamie. "How you doing man?" He greeted casually ordering drinks for him and Ellie- he knew what she'd usually go for anyway, they had a certain routine for these things and he thanked Arabella for opening the tab telling her he'd split the bill with her later and make sure everything was even but she brushed him off with 'it doesn't matter's and 'whatever's but he'd prove to be stubborn later when it actually came to it.

When the drinks came over a few minutes later, he stood back to pass Ellie her drink and grinned at her. "Cheers El," He suggested holding out his glass.

He grinned as Nate and Ellie arrived in their usual enthusiastic fashion. Sometimes, he envied their friendship- they knew each other like the back of their hands, and there was always some sort of shared joke between them. It was always Nate and Ellie- seeing one without the other felt strange.

The bartender arrived back with their drinks, and he handed one to Bella. "Cheers," he said, tapping his glass off of hers, before taking a mouthful of his drink. It was exactly like he liked it- plenty of vodka. "So, I'm guessing that you two have undoubtedly got some insane scheme planned, so tell us now so we can prepare ourselves," he said jokingly to Nate and Ellie.

Ellie didn't complain as Nate ordered her drink for her. They'd been out on enough night outs together for him to know exactly what she liked. As Nate commented about Jamie and Bella, she nodded. "Bet they give themselves away before the night's out," she murmured to him. Now that she was almost as tall as him, it was much easier for them to have low key conversations without anyone else noticing. She took the drink and tapped her glass against his, perching on a bar stool. It was still early, and she knew that her feet would probably be killing her by the end of the night. Better to rest them as much as possible before it got to that point.

"Us? Scheming? Never," She replied jokingly to Jamie.

With her statuesque figure leaning against the bar, Bella listened to conversation contently with a small smile on her lips but it wasn't the genuine, helpless smile she might crack when Jamie made a joke or was just generally being himself- no it was the infamous smirk associated with the name Bella Swift because it was the only warning sign of her mischief and madness. The brunette tilted her head to move her hair from her face and looked over at Jamie as he passed her a drink and she grinned softly at him returning his words with an identical response of "Cheers!" before brushing her glass against his and taking a quick swig from her drink. Bella had always been a bit of a Vodka drinker but to be fair she was more known for drinking liqueurs like Bailey's but she was more than content to drink Vodka it's just she was known to be fussy but upon tasting her drink she was happy with it- the balance seemed more or less right to her.

She laughed heartily at Ellie's sarcastic comment on hers and Nate's scheming habits but it was no secret they all knew better when it came to Ellie and Nate- that's why they were such a group pair to go out with, they made everything interesting and Bella would openly admit she'd never been to a disappointing party with Nate and Ellie, even the most miserable house parties had been turned around by these two one way or another so it was fair to say, when they walked into a club with Ellie and Nate there'd be more than a fair share of bets, dares and games within the evening but it didn't particular phase Bella- they were all fiends and it'd be good fun.

"Come on, don't try and hide it- what's the bet then because don't think for a second I'd know worse than to expect one from you two," She chirped up looking at them both sceptically over her glass for a moment before she took another sip from it. She looked over at Nate and held back chuckling to herself when she made a realization- he was out of his usual dress code and judging by the noticeable amount of coordination (too much coordination for Nate to have managed himself) that Ellie had probably had to conduct his outfit and she smiled a little that was so typical of the pair of them but there was no way in hell Arabella blamed Ellie- Nate had some shocking dress sense.

Nate took a place besides Ellie at the bar and he just laughed off Arabella and Jamie's accusations and because he was Nathaniel Carlile and he didn't know any other sense of humour except sarcasm and crude, he pulled the card of being dramatic once again. "God guys? What do you think we are? Marijuana smoking adolescent teenage off the record party animals? Jeez, gives us some credit," He joked gently pretending to roll his eyes before turning around with some more honest and shrugging his broad shoulders at them briefly with a small grin that betrayed his attempt to mask the fact they'd spent a long while conversing over their schemes for the night.

"The award tonight will go to whoever is responsible for getting us all kicked out or gets themselves kicked out of the most club this evening, there are no rules or limitations except we don't get kicked out because Bella you work here right?" She nodded in reply to him so he continued. "No getting kicked out here or you'll be permanently labelled as a douche and winner chooses lowest scorer's forfeit dare thing," He explained grinning sheepishly when he was greeted with an incredibly sharp and theatrical from Arabella like she couldn't believe what he was saying and he looked out with an arched brow and raised his shoulders making a small gesture with his hands. "What? It's me Nate- you knew what to expect when you agreed to come out with myself and Ellie,"

Jamie shook his head as Nate confessed his and Ellie's plans. Of course they were going to try and get kicked out of as many places as possible. Nate and Ellie never seemed to do a calm night out. At least they'd had the decency to agree not to cause any trouble here. Bella's job was important to her, after all.

"Why am I not surprised?" He sighed, shaking his head. He leaned against the bar, taking another mouthful out of his drink. Knowing that he wasn't actually hated, that these people liked to be out with him, made him feel like a completely different person. He was actually able to relax, and he wasn't drinking with the intention of getting so drunk he couldn't feel. It felt surreal, like he was dreaming, like this wasn't actually his life.

She laughed at the other's reactions to their plan. For her, it wasn't a really good night unless they got up to some mischief, which is exactly what she was intending to do.

"Oh, and I challenged him to shots. Because someone's a lightweight and will probably get thrown out of way more bars than I will, so if I end up having to do a forfeit, I'm dragging him down with me," she said, elbowing him in the ribs. "So, what do you say? We finish these drinks, then go somewhere we can cause some real trouble," she suggested.

"We'll were in for a fun night," Bella uttered jokingly to Jamie, poking him in the ribs. "Don't you think?" She told him with a slight laugh before she sipped from her drink again, rolling her eyes as Ellie started talking about again about the second bet. She'd say she didn't believe them but it was so typical of them she wouldn't be surprised if they'd arrived already pissed on their pre-drinks. She shook her head at them softly struggling to picture how this night was probably going to end at this rate.

"You two are just stupid I swear," Bella scoffed smiling at the two gently. "And cruel. So cruel to each other. There won't be enough aspirin in the world for you two to get up tomorrow morning if you drink as much as your implying you will," She chimed but she didn't blame them, it made for a good night most of the time. "But yeah okay Ellie, I'm cool with that," She looked over at Jamie wonderingly, her brow half arched. "Are you? I don't mind sticking around here for a bit otherwise," She admitted gently as always working to please the majority, well no maybe the majority in general but the majority she cared about- Bella was quite happy to disregard the general majority if it meant the specific minority of people she cared about were in the best interests, they'd always been her priority she had a pack mentality, a loyalty and she had to admit it was one of her better qualities even though of which there were few.

"I am not going to lose this time Ellie- I have confidence," He told her but it was quite clear the words were spoken with blatant disbelief in fact it was almost sarcastic. He laughed gently with her and shrugged at Bella gently.

"Nothing a blunt can't fix," He told her and he was greeted with an incredibly sharp and dramatic eye roll but he hadn't expected anything else from Arabella, not now not ever.

"Yeah sounds call to me," He said in reply to her comment before taking a mouthful of his drink and tilting his glass so he could listen to the sound the ice made when it tapped against the side and he smiled a little almost in fascination of it but he developed some maturity as quickly as he could and looked up again, trying to forget how desperately he wanted to swirl the glass and listen to it. He was such a child, he even felt the need to try and discipline himself sometimes but he figured most people were used to it by now so he just embraced it the best he could.

Jamie nodded as Bella asked him if he was happy with going with somewhere else. He didn't have any preference clubwise, and he knew that despite their promises, Nate and Ellie would inevitably start to cause some form of trouble if they had to stay too long. He took another mouthful out of his drink.

"Next week certainly has a lot to live up to in terms of drama," he remarked. He couldn't remember the last time there had been so many dramatic events- or perhaps that had just been in his life. Perhaps for everyone else, Jace's big reveal and Bella punching him in the nose were the only remotely interesting things that had happened. But for him, his life had been turned upside down a number of times.

Everybody seemed to be in agreement about moving on from this bar, and Ellie smiled, fixing the skirt of her dress a little. She was aware of several pairs of eyes staring at her, but chose not to acknowledge them. Had she been out by herself, it would have been a different story, but not tonight. It wouldn't be fair to ditch the others, and it just felt a bit weird hooking up with somebody while Nate was there. And besides, that wasn't her goal for the night. Her goal was to get as drunk as possible, if she was honest.

She downed the rest of her drink and put the glass down on the bar as Jamie commented on the week's drama. "I dunno, it was nice to have something to talk about other than just the summer. You know me, I like a bit of gossip. Oh, Nate, is Karma's glam rock night tonight or tomorrow night? I know we're not dressed for it, but hey, good music!"

Bella laughed a little at his comment and seemed to almost lose her mouthful of Vodka and coke but she whipped around to face her back to them and took a moment to compose herself, thankfully without any spillage or excessive embarrassment. The word 'drama' had brought back the image of Jace's face when her fist had just hit the bridge of his nose and the shock had finally sunk in. She shook her head and grinned at them a little rolling her eyes but she shrugged off the thought.

"You know what, it'll be fine because I really don't think anyone's going to try and fuck with any of us, after what happened to Jace's face- I don't think anyone is dumb enough at that school to try it- to be honest, I think it'll be pretty boring because Jace will be withering in his pit of broken ego bones and yeah, he's the only one that really starts any of the big dramas well and me but I don't try to.." She rambled sheepishly running a hand through her hair with a small smirk. She finished the rest of her drink as Ellie started talking about some Karma Glam Rock Night? It meant nothing to her so she didn't bother to comment on it. She just put her glass down on the bar and brushed her hair from her face focusing on nothing for the moment.

Nate had been quiet for a few moments, he'd noticed the attention on Ellie long before she had was trying not to let himself act over protectively but she was his best friend and it was kind of hard not to want to tell them to back the fuck up but nothing happened so he brushed it off his shoulder and snapped back into the zone of the conversation when Ellie said his name and his gaze flickered over to her and a grin flashed up as quickly as his eyes did.

"I can honestly say I don't have a clue El, we can always go check though there's plenty of other clubs that side of the town anyway as a plan B," He suggested shrugging his shoulders casually as usual barely knowing what he was talking about.

He rolled his eyes at Ellie chugging her drink but he decided to let her get a head of the game because his competitive side really didn't want to lose any of the bets tonight so he just chuckled a little and took a calm sip of his own drink and relaxed against the bar.

Ellie started talking about some theme night in one of the clubs, and Jamie found himself zoning out. He hadn't been on a night out in ages, ever since he'd started avoiding Bella. He was completely out of the loop- not that he'd ever really been in the loop anyway. He just went where the others did and made sure nobody got hurt- that was his job. But not tonight. Ellie and Nate could look after themselves- he didn't need the stress of trying to stop them from doing something stupid. And Bella had proven long ago that she could look after herself as well.

He finished his drink and left the glass down on the bar as Nate gave some vague answer to Ellie's question. Even when Nate wasn't stoned, he still was a little. Jamie made a point of avoiding anything stronger than alcohol, knowing that he was more prone to addiction than the others. Even alcohol was bad enough for him, but it had to be dealt with.

"Well, Nate, you're already falling behind on the drinks," he remarked, smirking at him.

Ellie rolled her eyes, but grinned anyway. Of course Nate wouldn't know what was happening where. He wasn't exactly the brightest crayon in the box, but that wasn't why she was his friend.

Her grin changed to a smirk as Jamie remarked on how slow Nate was finishing his drink. "Trying the old hare and the tortoise trick?" She remarked, hopping down from the barstool and tugging on the back of her skirt to make sure it hadn't risen up. For a moment, she was disorientated with the extra height her heels lent her, but she quickly adapted to it. "C'mon, slow poke, we're not out for a casual drink and game of cards. Or, well, maybe you are, but I'm not," she said, winking at him.

Bella listened to them all with a slight laugh as she leaned back watching them all pick on Nate a bit- it was typical of them, Nate often drew the short straw out of them all simply because he was the only one who'd shrug it off but also because he was the slowest and you were more likely to get an entertaining reaction to but there was also the factor that Nate gave people more reasons to wind him up than anybody else with his 'stonerism' as he'd once called it and inability to comprehend anything himself without guidance from Ellie or his Mother but Bella didn't join in or make a comment, she kind of commended him for drinking slow anyway so she left it be even though the others didn't.

She smiled at them all running a hand through her delicately and distractedly twirling it around her a finger till it almost formed a dread then she let go and it sprung free into it's usual slightly waved lock. She ran a black nail over the top of her nose trying to brush off an irritating itch but she seemed to focus on them again afterwards but she still didn't comment, she was just taking in the scene for a minute there was so many people she wasn't quite sure what to do- she was used to the Club but it was especially busy this evening from what she could tell and even Bella found it not intimidating but obvious whilst she was turning her gaze over the environment.

"Ellie, do I look like a bloody turtle to you? That didn't even make sense. You guys have only had one, I'm not that far behind anyway," He scoffed deciding to chug the last of his drink to prove a point and then he looked at them all and offered a sarcastic smirk but his eye twitched as a give away he was either a, slightly taken a back by the sting of his drink or b, trying especially hard not to laugh or smile and knowing Nate it probably wasn't the latter.

He looked at Ellie and rolled his eyes defensively. "Not casual, tactful," He insisted pointing at them both to reiterate his point. "Tactical," He added as if he was speaking the wise words of a genius and he deserved the upmost respect and admiration from his peers but it was Nathaniel and the only words of wisdom he'd ever speak is life advice because for someone with so little a social life or work and school life- he was very good at life advice, that's all you could really say in terms of his intelligence and 'wisdom' though.

Jamie had noticed how quiet and almost distracted Bella was. He gave her a nudge and smiled at her. "You okay?" He asked quietly as Ellie and Nate continued their usual banter. She'd had a rough week, just like him, and knew that this was an excuse for her to get it out of her system- much like him. Sometimes, he felt horrible for not letting her stay with him, but it just wasn't an option. His bad days just outnumbered his good days by far too much. The only reason he had the energy and the will to go out was due to the 16+ hours sleep he'd had that day. He'd probably need to sleep for as long again tomorrow and the day after to make up for it.

Ellie raised an eyebrow as Nate asked if he looked like a turtle, deliberately choosing not to comment. Of course he didn't look like a turtle, but Ellie could never resist a tease. He succumbed to their teasing at his slowness by emptying his glass in one, and she smirked at him, brushing down her skirt.

"C'mon, then, Mr 'tactical', let's go somewhere we can cause some real trouble," she said, retrieving her purse from her bag. "I'm dying for a bit of fun- this place is just loud," she said, shrugging a little and grinning at the others. She was genuinely dying for a bit of real drama and a place where they could actually dance. Here, she couldn't even do dodgy dad dancing.

She looked up at him and nodded gently. "Yeah, I just couldn't believe how busy it is in here tonight," She told him softly she frowned a little pressing her stomach a little but she brushed it off and tossed her hair down her shoulder and just smiled it off. "It just kinda hurts but I'm fine," She told him gently being totally honest with him because she knew better and she trusted him enough to be truthful regardless, it wasn't too board but there was a harrowing ache in her stomach it'd been there since her release and the original medication wore off but she felt it more for standing and being on her feet. It wasn't bothering her more than the hyperactivity of the club though it was just something on her mind to some degree.

She stood straight, rolling her shoulders back and standing tall she played everything off as very calm and fun which to be fair was true, she was genuinely enjoying herself but she was still Bella and she had a way of being in several places at once when it came to her thoughts and emotions and feeling the pain in her stomach had remained her she'd have gone to home eventually and she couldn't hide from her forever but took a deep breath and let herself forget about it. She had a whole evening to live yet- she wasn't going to spoil it with her stupid little fear.

As Ellie and Nate rounded off their conversation she turned her head over to the bar and she waved over the bar tender and settled the bill- she didn't mind getting the first round in, they could rotate it anyway if anybody was that bothered by it. The bar tender recognised her employee discount and she paid the rest in the cash and then she turned to the others; "I promise Jamie a drink, so I might as well have got you both one two," She explained with a gentle and genuine smile. "We moving on?" She asked them all communally.

"Okay, let's go then," He told her dramatically, rolling his eyes at how desperate she seemed tog et into some kind of trouble but he wasn't in the slightest surprised or bothered by it, he knew Ellie and he was very similar in many ways so he wouldn't bother her for it, in fact he only embraced the opportunity to get outside and have a quick blunt before they went inside another club. When Bella explained about the drinks he thanked her politely as he'd been raised too and grinned at them all; "I'll get the next one in then when we get there," He offered. "I suppose I owe you guys one for dragging you all out here," He shrugged casually as they started gathering themselves to leave and go out to the next venue.

Nate was incredibly chilled out and easy going compared to the others, he didn't have a care in the world other than his family and friends- there wasn't anything else that had any genuine worth to him so he'd always found it ridiculously easy to chill out and let his hair down as so to speak, he never really had anything serious of his mind so you could always see that in his character and it was as obvious now as it always had been as he excitedly chatted away about making plans for the night and where they should and shouldn't go.

Her honesty with him about the pain was relieving- he didn't want her to be in bad pain and not tell them. Even just for her to admit to some pain was more than usual. He nodded, but she seemed to brush off her reverie. She paid for their drinks, and he straightened up, brushing himself down. "Thanks, Bella," he said, grinning at her.

"Yeah, let's get going. We should get in ahead of the real crowds if we go now," he said, before starting into the crowd, pulling Bella behind him. It was still pretty early, but it was starting to get busy, and everywhere else would be too. As they got down to the street, he looked around for Ellie and Jace. "So, where're we going from here?" He asked.

Ellie chimed in with her thanks as everyone else did. She'd never say no to a free drink- the only free thing she would say no to was drugs. She'd learned her lesson from that. Jamie and Bella plunged into the crowd, and Ellie rolled her eyes. "Honestly, they're like newlyweds," she remarked to Nate, before starting after them. She'd always been good at making her way through crowds. People just moved for her, and she was an expert at finding gaps. She made it out slightly before Nate, catching up to Bella and Jamie.

"I want to check Karma out, anyway. Even if it's not Glam Rock night, the music there's not bad. I want to minimise my exposure to that dance shit as much as possible," she said.

Bella smiled up at Jamie and cautiously followed him through the crowd, she couldn't say that the atmosphere really appealed to her much when it was this busy she wasn't much of a clubber either- she always went to school parties but if it was up to Bella, she'd rather call up her small number of friends and go camping for a weekend to get pissed rather than go clubbing, it just didn't always appeal to her but she enjoyed it, just only to an extent but she needed the drink so.

Outside, she stood close next to Jamie before looking behind her for Ellie and Nate and she noted they were just behind her and was then completely calm. "I'm cool with that, it's normally a bit quieter down there as well too," She commented casually brushing her hair out of her face with one hand as she spoke.

Nate rolled his eyes at Ellie's comment and looked down at her. "Hey come on, leave 'em be. They're just looking out for each other, I'd do the same for you," He reminded her softly before following her through the crowd till they were all gathered outside the club and chatting away about the next one. Now they were outside again, he took up the opportunity to get the urge to smoke over and done with. "Sorry El, I've been gagging for it to be honest," He remarked quietly before he removed the tin from his pocket and expertly rolled himself a blunt whilst they were all talking about checking out a club called Karma, he nodded in agreement as he held the joint before his lips and cupped the tip with his hands in order to get a spark out of his lighter and light it up. He respectfully stood a few steps back from the others so they weren't exposed to smoke or anything on his part- he didn't really think it was harmful what came out of the joint, he knew the facts about it but he figured it was probably courteous to just take that precaution.

See although he was a dopehead or a dumpweed, a pot head or any other stupid name you wanted to put it on it he was incredibly understanding about the fact it wasn't everybody's choice or something they agreed with. Sure he knew Bella smoked it quite casually and regularly but he didn't know about Jamie and he knew Ellie wasn't really into it so he didn't want to offend anyone so he just made sure of that by one, apologising for the action and two standing back a bit. He thought that was the acceptable thing to do.

He took a drag and then spoke.

"YEah, I'm totally up for Karma if you guys want to," He shrugged contently.

Jamie nodded at Ellie's suggestion of Karma. Karma was a more alternative club, usually preferring rock over dance. He'd been there for some of their metal nights, and they were always insane- in the best way possible. "Sounds like we're going to Karma, then!" He said as Nate lit up. While he didn't smoke himself, he wasn't one to judge. After all, Bella smoked weed occasionally. They'd all tried it in their time- but shortly afterwards, Jamie had discovered that addictive tendencies could be genetic, and had decided against smoking again.

"Let's go, we want to get in before everyone else makes the same decision," he said. Karma was usually better when there was more people, but getting in at that point was the problem. So it was better to be there early and just wait for it to get busy.

Ellie rolled her eyes at Nate lighting up. She knew that it was probably a little hypocritical of her- after all, she'd done just about everything in her time, and she was sure the others could remember that time. But she'd blamed her getting clean on a health scare- which wasn't a lie.

"And then you wonder why you're such an airhead," she called to him jokingly. "I quit and now look at me. Fully functioning member of society," she said, gesturing to herself, before laughing. She slung an arm around Bella's shoulders. "C'mon, your boyfriend's right. We want to actually get in!" She said, grinning at the other girl as she started to pull her along, towards Karma.

Bella had been to Karma so after Ellie's sly comment and not being sure how to respond, she ducked her head and started walking- her lips clamped shut and with Ellie draped over her shoulder. She didn't even tell her to shut up or fuck off, she just kept her mouth tightly closed and started walking ahead towards Karma rolling her eyes at Nate's dramatics and after a while saying; "You know what, I think I've heard that story before and I'm not sure I want to see a repeat,"

She brushed off the skirt of her red swing dress and pulled on her jacket so it clung onto her a bit more tightly to hold on to some warmth whilst they walked the evening street towards Karma before turning her focus onto making sure she went the right way and didn't get lost somewhere along the lines.

Nate scoffed at Ellie rolling her eyes at him and teasing him about smoking and he sighed softly exhaling as he looked at her laughing a little. "Ellie, I'm an airhead because I'm thick not because I smoke weed. That creepy exchange student kid smokes more than I do I swear to god and he's straight A's so I argue you hypothesis strongly," He told her dramatically, smirking a little in amusement when she made a comment at Bella and he sighed chuckling slightly, half surprised Bella didn't swing for her but what made the moment even funnier was the confusion, shock and hesitation on Bella's face when she was trying to judge how to react and she'd turned her head to the side slightly instinctively and opened her mouth than shut it again and Nate just couldn't believe it- someone had actually shut Bella up.

"Right- come on, I want to get to Karma and ASAP because queues piss me off and I'll end up arguing with someone random guy like last time we got stuck outside in a non-smoking area for an hour and half," He said looking over at Ellie to see if he got the reference, the last time they'd gone out they'd queued up for this alternative rock gig and they'd been so exited about it they queued for hours to get at the front and Nate got all agitated because he couldn't move, walk fidget, eccentrically dramatize his speech, sing, skateboard or smoke (most importantly, smoke) for several hours and had taken to using pick up lines on random people to try and get a reaction but he learnt his lesson quickly when he started getting squared up to by older men for 'hitting on their girlfriends'- Nate had only been messing around and joking but some people were just too sensitive, well that's what he argued at least.

It wasn't uncommon for Jamie not to retaliate after a comment like Ellie's- but it was highly unlike Bella not to respond. Even Ellie looked surprised at being able to get away with that. Jamie couldn't read Bella's face exactly, but knew that they'd need to have a chat about the whole thing. She didn't seem herself. She wasn't even pretending to be herself. Bella was usually a big enough personality to contend with Ellie and Nate on a night out- but not tonight.

"I think we've all heard that story several times by now, Nate," Jamie teased as they reached Karma. There was a queue, but it seemed to be being caused by a drunk arguing with one of the bouncers. He leaned against the wall. "Either we're not the only one not in fancy dress, or glam rock night is tomorrow night, Ellie," he remarked.

Ellie rolled her eyes yet again in response to Nate. At least a quarter of their conversations seemed to result in her rolling her eyes. She laughed at his story. He'd nearly gotten punched in the jaw more than once on that particular occasion- but it had been worth dragging him along so early, and having to deal with him being unable to sit- or, rather, stand- still. They'd gotten front row and it had been an amazing show.

"I need to bring you to more gigs, Nate, that way you'll have more stories to tell." She remarked as they reached Karma. There was generally so many gigs she wanted to go to, but for whatever reason, nobody would go with her or she couldn't go. But if she had an excuse to drag Nate along, she'd be going to every single concert possible.
