History:
The Rockefeller name comes with a lot of privilege, and Ariana was introduced to that fresh out of the womb. She is the second child of David Rockefeller, Jr. (73), and Diana Newell-Rowmen (58), but only stole the second child spot by two minutes, since her her twin sister was born just minutes after. Besides the twins, David and Diana also conceived two sons together, one older, and one younger than Ariana. Her parents were both career-oriented people but didn't allow their children to be raised by nannies, as many of their friends did. Both parents were heavily involved in Ariana's childhood and were the main people who encouraged her to reach her full potential. It wash a major reason for her success in life, but also garnered an unhealthy level of competitiveness in her, especially when it came to her twin sister. No matter what her sister did, Ariana had to do it better. It is a trait that is still well and alive in her now, even though they're older.

She attended The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks for grades K-12 and flourished there. She was the top of her class academically and was the girl that no one dared to cross socially. Her popularity may have been obtained by instilling fear in her peers rather than adoration, but regardless, she was the Queen Bee. All it took was one wrong look and you could be sent to the bottom of the social ladder in an instant. Her parents wanted her to be the best at everything and she was determined to do so. If maintaining her spot at the top meant becoming a bully, then so be it.

Following high school, Ariana enrolled in Yale and earned a business degree in three years. It wasn't so much a necessity for survival as it was a way to further prove her intelligence. Ariana would never have to work a day in her life if she didn't want to, but after graduating college, she launched her own fashion brand, followed by an organic cosmetics line. It's been almost three years since the products have been on the market and with the growing number of eco-aware customers, the line is thriving. She's in the process of working on a line of houseware items made from recycled, environment-friendly materials which she hopes to launch this winter.

Positive Traits:
Observant | Quick-Witted | Astute | Well-Articulated | Appreciative

Character Flaws:
Competitive | Vain | Vengeful | Cold | Instigator

Personality:
Ariana would describe herself as being a strong and independent woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to take it. She's assertive, confident, outspoken and bold and believes all of those characteristics are necessary for success. Her leadership skills are exemplary, especially in the professional work space, but a lot of this can also be attributed to how manipulative and cold she can be. She knows how to word things to make sure people know not to cross her without having to explicitly say it, and she often leaves people wondering whether she just gave them a sincere compliment or an underhanded insult. Ari thinks that being aggressive garners respect, and while it sometimes does, it also creates fear and prevents people from wanting to get close to her. She's rarely challenged, but has never had many close friends, especially girl friends. She knows how to be sexy and flirtatious and captivate male attention, but when it comes to females, her character flaws always seem to destroy friendships.

Her competitive nature may have something to do with underlying self-esteem issues. Instead of recognizing that she's great as herself, she thinks it's necessary to be better than others to prove her own worth. If she's not the smartest, the fastest, the wealthiest, than what good is she? It didn't take long for her to realize that it's impossible to be the best at everything in life, but she isn't comfortable with just accepting this as a fault in reality. If she feels threatened in any way, she lashes out. It's never usually an obvious attack, but she's not above instigating negative situations and trying to ruin people's happiness to make herself feel superior. It's toxic, unhealthy and just plain mean, and more and more, she is beginning to feel guilty about it. She doesn't understand why she can't be happy with her own life without stepping on others in the process, especially now, when she feels like she's old enough to be beyond the petty games.

Despite the dominant negative traits, she isn't entirely frozen over. She's generous with her fortune, genuinely appreciates the people who work for her and help her, and is protective of her close friends and family to a point where sometimes, she can seem maternal, actually. Although she has no problem screwing them over, she does take offense when other people wrong them and will stand up for them. Her reputation is extremely important to her and since she believes that "you're judged by the company you keep", she doesn't want anyone she associates with to be criticized or involved in scandal either.

Likes:
Social media | Sour candy | Healthy eating | Manicures | An even tan | Autumn in New England | The smell of the ocean | Febreeze | Money | Power | Competitions | Roses

Dislikes:
Losing in anything | Chocolate ice cream | Criticism | Beer | White bread | Overly salty foods | Sexism | Rejection | Unrequited love | One night stands | Rap music | The welfare system

Fears:
Never developing close relationships with people | Sharks
She has no major phobias but is a noticeably jumpy person. She's easily startled and can't stand when people sneak up, surprise or prank her.

Aspirations:
She wants to run an empire and make a name for herself outside of her family's. Right now, she's more career-focused than anything else and while she does want to get married at some point, she's not ready to settle down just yet.

Villa Punta Mita is where the group of young celebrities will be spending the first week of their summer together. While many arrived last night, some arrived this morning, but given the amount of luxury that the rented home offers (courtesy of The Johnson Family), it's positive that none of them will want to leave by the time that July 2nd rolls around...

She did feel like Brody was despicable, but of course, it wasn’t a fair use of words. She had cheated just like he had, but somehow, her doing it was different. For one, hers was with someone that he didn’t know. He would never meet the guy who was an old family friend of the Rockefellers, because Ariana had always been careful, no- considerate enough to never invite him to any event that she and Brody would be at. Brody slept with someone who could technically be considered a mutual friend of theirs, even if she and Onika definitely weren’t friends. Their families were friends, and that counted enough in itself for his infidelity to feel like even more of a slap in the face than it would have been, if he had slept with someone who was a stranger to Ariana. At least then, she would have been able to convince herself that the girl was some no-good slut, who was unsuccessful in every aspect of her life. She knew Nicki, and she knew that wasn’t true, so there was no use in trying to convince herself of that just to make herself feel better. Additionally, though Brody insisted that them sleeping together had only occurred once, now Ariana was left to wonder how true that even was. How many times had she left Brody alone in a room with Nicki, thinking nothing of it? What else could have happened, that he wasn’t confessing to now? Although Brody and Ariana had essentially admitted to the same thing, therefore, it was like a tit for a tat, Ariana still felt humiliated and betrayed. A lot of her anger was focused on Brody, but she wouldn’t have been human if she didn’t feel some sort of disgust for Nicki too. She was a homewrecker, whether the home was already unstable before she wrecked it or not.



With all of that said, Ariana was committed to at least trying to be civil towards everyone this summer, regardless of how she truly felt. She was Ariana Rockefeller, and a major aspect of being someone who was so composed and perfect in their reputation, meant that she couldn’t be too callous, or immature, or hateful in very obvious ways. She had to seem unbothered by the actions of unimportant people, even if it was only an act. That was why she entered the kitchen with a smile on her face, glad to see that Christopher was present and not somehow already getting himself into trouble, and unknowingly glad that she hadn’t heard the words that had come out of his mouth just a few seconds before. β€œHi, everyone,” she smiled, taking in the scene in the kitchen. It seemed like everyone other than Brody and EJ were there, and regardless of the vast size of the house and kitchen in itself, she was glad that her twin sister Colette, and younger brother, had opted out of this summer trip, because she was already feeling overwhelmed at the size of the group here. A part of it was probably that she wasn’t particularly fond of Nicki right now (or ever), and how she wasn’t close friends with Grace either. That added two potential enemies to her list, and given where she and Brody stood right now, it was easy to make that a list of three. Notably, though, she wasn’t going to allow her breakup with Brody to sour the light that she viewed Kendall and Kylie in. Kendall was a good girl, a compatible friend for Ariana, and though Kylie was a bit more of a problem child, Ariana had always just seen her as being a work in progress. She wasn’t going to abandon that project just because her brother couldn’t keep his dick in his pants. When one of the staff workers in the kitchen offered her a glass of wine, Ariana gladly accepted. She was unaware of the plans to have tequila brought out, but she probably wasn’t going to drink that anyway. Regardless of being in Mexico, it was noon. Even if she was going to drink hard liquor right now, it wasn’t going to be in the form of a shot. β€œI’m glad you two got here safely,” she said, as she took a plate and nudged Kendall’s arm lightly in the process. β€œIs your brother here, too?” she inquired, purposely attempting to normalize the air regarding her and Brody. She wasn’t going to act hostile towards him, and she didn’t want people to feel weird referencing him around her, since they were going to be spending a few months together, but she also wished that she wasn’t genuinely curious about where Brody was. She wished she didn’t care about him at all, at this point, but unfortunately, she wasn’t there yet.

Scott's gaze met the food as the rest of the crowd discussed plans and picked on each other. Scott's only care in the world at the moment was food, booze, and boobs and nothing wqs going to get in the way of him enjoying a full time vacation. As he filled a plate with food, Chris and Kylie joined the room and Chris wasted no time picking on Nicki. Scott smiled at the comments being made and turned away from the food to draw his attention to the bullying going on behind him. "Com'on Rockerfeller, you know damn well there's nothing classy about the Johnsons. It's all publicity." Scott smirked and tossed a wink in Nicki's direction. "Isn't that so, Onika?" Scott's smile was sly and devious, he brought an apple to his lips and took a large bite. Scott knew that nothing would ever happen between he and Nicki, but that didn't stop him from flirting with and teasing her. Not that Nicki wasn't his type, but more so that he wasn't her type. He still enjoyed having as much fun as he could with her though. Scott's shot towards Nicki wasn't meant to be in light of recent events but when Ariana entered the room, Scott could almost feel the air get heavy with tension. As Ariana spoke, however, it was clear she was doing her best to cut through said tension. To Scott, the knife was a bit dull though and he could see right through it.

"Hey Ari," Scott smiled towards her. Scott had always had a soft spot for Ariana, he's always had a thing for her. And as vultures do, Scott's plan has been to circle her until she was free to be picked up. With this whole thing going on between Ari and Brody that Scott had picked up from his sister, Grace, he knew this his opportunity to show Ariana that Scott was a much better man than Brody - regardless of whether or not it was true, which it probably wasn't. In an attempt to help break the growing tension, Scott spoke up, "Where is the less fun Jenner?" Scott's question wasn't directed at anyone in particular but he gave no one time to answer. "Not even important, I'm the life of the party and I'm right here." Scott squeezed past the crowding area and headed towards the back veranda. "How about we atop worrying about shitheads who obviously don't want to have fun and we go take shots by the pool." Sccot gave a tap to Chris' chest as he walked by him and mentioned for him to follow. "Chris, let's show 'em how it's done in Mexico. Gerard, bring the tequila, shot glasses, salt and some limes. We're going to fuckin' party." Time wasn't an issue for this borderline alcoholic, it was 5 o'clock somewhere.

"Sounds good!" Kendall agreed when Nicki reasoned that it would be nice to eat outside. She was ready to get some sun and fresh air, and the ambiance of an outdoor meal seemed perfect right about now. She giggled quietly as Grace continued to be herself; luckily now, just going on about how Nicki was probably an alcoholic hoarding all of the wine for herself, and it wasn't until Kendall's plate was completed that she actually starting paying attention to everything occurring in the room. Christopher had entered, not wasting a moment in time before starting to be his playfully belligerent self - with Nicki as his first target. Scott only fed off of this energy, and that in itself worried Kendall since she knew that both of the boys could be a force to be reckoned with on their own, and coupled together, they were definitely a mess and a half- albeit a fun one.

The fact that Nicki didn't even respond to Chris was what caught Kendall's attention. The snub wasn't anything that was particularly obvious, given how quickly things were moving in the kitchen. Kylie and Ariana were there then too, but for the moment, Kendall had to take a second to look at Nicki, actually attempting to read her. She couldn't tell what was really going on in the girl's head, but she definitely sensed that something was bothering her in regards to Chris, and instinctively, Kendall prayed that it had nothing to do with Kylie walking in at the same time as Chris. Additionally, she prayed that the mere fact that Kylie and Chris had walked in together was nothing more than a coincidence, and that they hadn't been hanging out or even talking before coming down here. Kylie had confided in Kendall about her and Chris a few weeks back, and ever since, she had been left feeling conflicted given that she knew that Nicki had a very long-lasting crush on the Rockefeller. If she had known that Chris had mutual feelings for Nicki, and had confessed said feelings to her on the same exact day that Nicki happened to walk in on him having sex with Kylie... it was safe to assume that Kendall's blood pressure would have been off the charts. She felt bad enough given the little that she knew, and the way that Nicki's mood seemed to shift quickly made her worried that Nicki knew more than she thought she knew, too. With so many people present, it didn't seem like the best time to investigate, but Kendall was definitely not going to let this go entirely.

She tried to put the thoughts on hold for a moment though, and the smile that appeared on her face as Kylie came over to them was genuine. She was glad that she was downstairs and socializing, even if she did seem to be carrying a slight attitude with her.
As Grace inquired about EJ, Kendall was able to talk to Ariana, whose presence had also made her happy. Even though she and Brody's relationship was over, Kendall still considered Ari to be a close and trustworthy friend, and the fact that she was inquiring about her brother made her feel a little bit more at ease about the two of them spending the summer together. "He's definitely here somewhere. I'm surprised that he's not down here yet, actually," she responded to Ari and partially to Scott too, realizing that it was unlike her brother to not be early to anything that involved food. She could have spent more time lingering on the matter, but Nicki seemed to have finished plating her food too, so Kendall started towards the door that led outside. "Come on, Nicki!" she called out behind her with a smile, as she headed outside, "I call dibs on getting to sit next to you!"

There definitely was a little (or at least she thought it was little) part of Kylie that was bratty, and that part of her wanted to feel offended at how no one really acknowledged her presence any more than she acknowledged theirs. She wasn't expecting a greeting as if she had just come home from war, but for some reason, it bothered her that Kendall seemed preoccupied with Nicki, and that Chris quickly scurried off to engage with the boys. Grace posed a good question, as she handed Kylie a plate: where was EJ? Right then, Kylie decided that he was certainly going to have to be her rock this trip, the person that she would clique up with since she automatically decided that everyone else was already cliquing up and purposely leaving her out. "That's a good question," she answered, seeing as neither of EJ's siblings nor Kendall seemed inclined on offering any sort of insight. Kylie really wasn't sure about where the youngest Johnson was, as she had been a bit preoccupied this morning with sulking and attempting to adjust to the change of scenery (even though given its beauty, it wasn't that hard). Plus, Kylie was the type who preferred to let others reach out to her, rather than reaching out to them herself, even if she wanted to talk to them.

Now, she felt desperate enough to break that rule, and so as Kendall answered Ariana, and then headed outside, Kylie set her empty plate down and looked to Grace. "I'm gonna go find him," she said, as she pulled out her phone to simultaneously text him saying, "Where are you? Save me." Though she easily could have filled her plate like the others, and went outside to wait for him, she didn't feel like it. Since she had already convinced herself that she was being purposely treated poorly and unfairly, she wasn't going to subject herself to such treatment any longer than necessary, and instead, would wait for him inside instead.

"Dre, this place is amazing. I don't know how I got away with never taking you up on the offers to come out here before now. I mean, this place is seriously sick," Brody said. Andre was the first person that he saw, and he was greeted with a wide smile and some very genuine approval of the Mexican estate. Brody had taken a little bit longer than the others to answer the lunch call, but it wasn't because he wasn't hungry, because he definitely was. In fact, even as he was talking to Andre, he was already helping himself to making a plate out of the array of dishes lined up for them to take from. While he saw the tail end of Chris, Scott, Nicki, Kendall and Grace heading outside, he managed to catch Andre, Ariana and Kylie still in the kitchen, and he was grateful at least for that, since it showed that he wasn't that late. He was sure that he had missed some good (or interesting, knowing these people) conversation, but at least he wouldn't have to awkwardly show up when everyone was already halfway through their meal. Plus, the excuse that he had, that he was on the phone with his mother, would probably only warrant enough teasing to make him feel like more of an idiot.

While greeting Andre was easy, the next person that he passed, who he actually ended up standing next too as he reached for a couple of crostinis, made him feel more tense. He didn't show it, though, because a few days prior, he and Ariana had agreed (in the coldest of conversations, albeit) that they were going to be civil this trip. They had both already promised to attend, and had cleared their work schedules to accommodate the summer-long break, so backing out wasn't an option for either of them, even though Brody had definitely considered it strongly over the past week, following their breakup. Even if they both tried to be civil, he still knew that things were going to be awkward... maybe even more than awkward... volatile, even, given that Ari knew about Nicki, and the two girls were going to be spending a lot of time together now. "Hey, Ari," he said, opting to get the initial greeting out of the way. He did his best to leave it at that... to not let his eyes rove over her... to not feel any sort of regret or hatred for himself... and the best way to do that was to continue piling food onto his plate, and then looking to Kylie, who was standing beside an empty plate with her eyes glued to her phone. Being attached to her phone was all too typical, and it was a pet peeve of Brody's when it came to her. It literally seemed impossible to even have a conversation with his youngest sister without her glancing at her phone screen at least once a minute during said conversation. It was rude and disrespectful, but he also felt like it was unhealthy for her to be so obsessed with social media, or whatever she was doing on there all day. "You good?" he asked her curiously, glancing at her empty plate. "You better put something on that plate before it's all gone," he said, continuing then as he glanced back at Andre. "Why do I have a feeling that Nicki had something to do with how good this food looks?"

Never let it be said that he wasn't a multi-tasker because while Andre was making sure that the tequila and shot glasses were being retrieved, and Andre was acknowledging people as they came into the kitchen, his gaze never strayed too far from his sister. At least, until she had disappeared outside with some of the others. Some would call it an obvious sign of him needing to chill out and perhaps then Nicki might being able to fully do so, but Andre didn't relax when it came to family. Especially when Nicki's body language suggested more and more discomfort. He'd be just as concerned if it were EJ, even if the two clashed on a regular basis and hardly had as many more loving fraternal moments as he was wont to have with Nicki. "Hey,
Ariana,"
he greeted her pleasantly. Andre forced his gaze to leave Nicki, especially when Kendall's face seemed to take on a pensive disposition and she was leading the way outside. Approval making him smile, Andre was actually prepared to follow the group when he heard Brody entering the kitchen, and his smile slipped into an easy grin.

"What can I say, man? Your loss," he replied, nodding to the staff who brought out two bottles of the Gran Patron Burdeos tequila Andre was sure his dad and Nicki had to have picked out together on their last trip to Mexico. He wasn't as picky about his tequila as the two of them. Watching them leave to go out to the others was an easy distraction from the almost unsettling energy emanating from Brody and Ariana's interaction. Though Andre knew the two were trying to be friends, considering the fact that he wasn't aware that Ariana knew that it was his sister Brody had cheated on her with, there was a lingering awkwardness there in having to witness the two together, even if they both willed there to not be such. It was just...the way life worked, he mused. It was when he noticed that Kylie hadn't moved to join the others did he turn back to the others, smirking upon Brody's acknowledgement of him. "It wouldn't be her if she didn't," Andre answered, a distinctive hint of pride in his voice. "I think she started this yesterday. I don't even wanna know what she's coordinated with the staff for our last night here." Ready to depart, his gaze switched between the two former lovers and the smile he gave was friendly. "Don't take too long to get your plates. Can't leave all of them alone for too long. They'll drink both of those bottles."

"Ass," Nicki muttered, more to herself than to Chris since she had already turned from him and was making good on having a seat with her girls. She didn't bother trying to explain herself nor acknowledge Chris again at the moment, instead opting to sit with Kendall and Grace on either side of her, even though she was discreetly keen on seeing if Grace would try to get their brunette friend to find a seat on her lap. "Ignoring that, I'm in need of a spa day at least once this week. I haven't had a good massage in a month, she proclaimed, an almost pleading look in her eyes when she turned her gaze to both girls. She knew, especially with Kendall, that she was going to have to explain what the hell her outburst was for. Hell, she knew that, eventually,
she was going to have to have an actual discussion with Chris at some point. There was no avoiding that. But it didn't mean either of those conversations had to happen now and she needed the distraction.

Truth be told, Nicki was more upset with the fact that her feelings, though she could be good at tampering them down, were so close to the surface than her actually being upset with Chris. Oh, she was definitely upset with him, maybe even actually angry.
She was definitely hurting, even if he wouldn't understand it. But she also hated that everything was this all-encompassing. Nicki wasn't a stranger to the fact that, perhaps, she wore her heart more on her sleeve than she wanted to admit. That because she usually had such a small circle, she didn't always feel the need to hide herself and so her emotions were a lot more easily accessible when dealing with these people. Even though she liked to believe that she wasn't that obvious, there was no doubt in her mind that more people knew about her latent feelings for Chris than they let on. But still, acknowledging that her emotions were a bit more apparent and actually having to deal with said emotions left her feeling far too exposed, uncomfortable and nervous. And nervous usually meant babbling and saying exactly what she didn't want to say.

EJ Johnson

β†’ Location: Punta Mita, Mexico

EJ detested waking up early. He had to do it enough during the school year, that when school was out or it was a weekend, there had to be a fantastic, one-in-a-lifetime event going on to get him out of bed before noon. Not even being in beautiful Punta Mita, Mexico, in a house with some of his closest friends and family, got him out of bed before noon. It was around that time that he got the news that lunch would be ready shortly, and by the time that he hopped out of the shower (which he had to take every morning, given that even if he slept twelve hours straight, he would still be half asleep until taking an ice cold shower), he had a text from his brother that lunch was ready. EJ left it unanswered. An "okay thanks" might have been polite, but it just didn't seem necessary, especially not as he hurried to get dressed.

By the time that he finally got down to the kitchen, his entrance coincided with Andre heading outside, much to his delight. He and his brother weren't blood-sworn enemies. Their relationship was just... rocky. EJ didn't hate him; he was just expecting the guy to have some comment about him sleeping all morning, and how immature it was, and blah, blah, blah. 99% of the time, the stuff that came out of Andre's mouth was stuff that EJ just didn't want to hear. Out of that 99% of the time, at least half of the time he simply didn't want to hear it because it was Andre who was telling him it, but that wasn't the point. The point of the matter, was that EJ often felt like Andre went hard on him for absolutely no reason.

He was much more pleased to find Kylie in the kitchen, and though he felt pretty impartial towards Brody and Ariana, he greeted them with a smile and a, "Hey, you guys," upon entering the room. He could be bratty sometimes, but it wasn't like he was a bad guy. In fact, for the most part, EJ was friendly and approachable until he felt like he was being slighted by someone. "Just got your text. Sorry for the holdup, but you know I need my beauty sleep,"[/color] he teased, stepping past her as he grabbed himself a plate. Waking up at noon, just in time to eat a perfectly prepared meal in what he believed to be the most beautiful part of Mexico... yeah, this was the life. "Everyone's outside, I assume?" he said, watching as a staff member headed to the veranda with glasses, before looking back to Kylie with a grin. "You know, you're definitely my favorite Jenner. My ride-or-die, waiting in here for me like this," he said, perfectly content with assuming that Kylie genuinely just wanted to wait for him before she ate, and that it had nothing to do with her not wanting to socialize with any of the others. He wasn't picky about what he piled onto his plate, so it took less than a minute before his plate was full. "Even if you're the most loyal, though, I know that the rest of my fans are waiting to be blessed with my presence out there, so let's go."

____________________________________
Reality was beginning to set in for the first time since they broke up a week ago, that things were now different between her and Brody. She had noticed it before, in small ways like not sleeping with him every night like she was used to, or at least talking on the phone with him before bed, or waking up to texts from him in the morning. Their plans to fly out to Mexico together had understandably been altered, and the way that Ariana had envisioned the summer going had been changed drastically too, but standing here in the kitchen of the house of the girl who she blamed for ruining their relationship, Ariana could no longer deny that this hurt. Whatever this feeling was... be it pure sadness, or anger, or guilt, or jealousy, or more likely, a combination of all of those... it made her skin feel like it was crawling. It made her stomach churn and her throat feel like it was closing up. Brody was no longer hers. He hadn't been hers for longer than she knew. For once in her life, she hadn't been enough for someone. She hadn't been the best... the person that no one could top or turn down. She was... replaceable. She had been replaced.

With that on her mind, it made it more difficult for her to make an effort to corral Kendall into remaining with her rather than going outside with the other girls, both of whom Ariana wasn't particularly fond of. Her brother and Scott left too, with the latter receiving a distracted hello from Ariana before he left with Chris. Soon after Brody had come in, Andre was leaving, and that left her alone, just for a minute, with the two remaining Jenners. EJ's presence changed that, and by the time that he showed up, Ariana had finished plating the foods she desired, but she wasn't quite ready to go outside yet. She didn't know if she would ever be ready to go outside, honestly, because suddenly, the atmosphere in the kitchen had her questioning why she had been so stupid to think that coming on this trip was a good idea at all. If it had been anyone other than Kylie and EJ in the room with her and Brody, she wouldn't have said anything, but since it was just them, she looked to Brody and softly requested, "Wait in here with me, for a minute?" Though Kylie and EJ were both young adults now, Ariana would forever see them as being children, and therefore, their opinions and even capabilities to understand what was going on automatically seemed less significant. She wouldn't have wanted Kendall or Scott, or Nicki or Chris to see her seeking out Brody, being vulnerable, but she didn't mind if EJ or Kylie heard, really, because their opinions seemed irrelevant. She wasn't, however, dumb enough to say anything more than that with them in the room, though. That was the entire point of asking Brody to stay for a minute - so that they could talk once the younger duo went outside.

Although Kylie often claimed that given her upbringing, she was far more mature and adult-like than a normal teenager, it was quite easy to tell that she was still young and angst-y by her moods. Nothing really had to happen for her to suddenly be moody and cop an attitude, and it happened especially frequently around anyone who she felt tried to take authority over her. Brody was susceptible to it a lot, lately, given how he seemed to want to step up and protect their family (the Jenners of the family, at least), from any more public scrutiny than necessary, but Kendall got it from time to time, too. For some reason (or maybe no good reason at all), the way that Brody spoke to her, looking from her phone and to her, as if he was disapproving of her not eating and texting instead, bothered her. It bothered her so much that she didn't respond to him, only dismissively rolled her eyes and turned her attention back to her phone. Had Andre and Ariana not been in the kitchen, she might have made some remark about how she would appreciate it if he would mind his own business this summer, but thankfully, their presence kept her from being more openly disrespectful. Luckily then too, EJ arrived, and Kylie could finally relax a little bit. She followed his lead in putting food on her plate, and barely noticed Ariana flagging her brother to the side of the room as she headed outside with EJ, rolling her eyes but smirking slightly as she said, "Let's compare Instagram followers and then you can tell me about all your fans, buddy."

"Sorry, sorry. I forgot I was talking to the Kylie Jenner. King Kylie," EJ backtracked playfully, but he was only partly joking because he was close enough with Kylie that oftentimes, it was surreal to think of who she was in the public light. His family made a name for themselves too, and in some cases, that came from scandals that weren't the best, but EJ felt like who he was to the public was true to who he was in "real" life. Even he would laugh out loud if Kylie tried to claim the same about herself. She knew how to work social media, he would never deny her of that right, but who she was there and to the media seemed so superficial compared to the girl he knew. It was like she was a completely different person, so "forgetting" sometimes wasn't something that you could really blame him for.

"Let that be the first and last time you forget it, and I'll forgive you," she teased as they reached the veranda where the others sat. No matter how immaturely bitter she wanted to be about some things, no bad mood of hers could negate how utterly gorgeous this place was. She had been to Punta Mita before, so it wasn't too much of a shock for her, but it didn't take away from how much of a paradise it truly was.

"Sure, anything for my second favorite Jenner." EJ's attention shifted from Kylie as he heard Chris speaking, followed by Kendall making a comment about someone not needing hard liquor. Given the setting, it was easy to assume she was referring to Kylie, especially when Chris' words were taken into account, but he couldn't be positive. Nonetheless, there was never a time that EJ didn't let his opinion be known, so as he approached the table with his signature grin, he had to say, "I don't know what we're talking about, but I heard something about Kylie and EJ going hard, so I'm gonna agree with you, Chris. Sounds like a solid plan." As he found an empty seat at one of the heads of the table (since his father wasn't here, he decided that that seat was rightfully his), he couldn't help but to add, "Would've been easier for me to go hard if Nika hadn't stolen the best seat at the table, but I'll ignore that this one time, sis," looking to Nicki, before winking at Kendall and Grace.

With Chris sitting across from Nicki, and Scott next to him, and therefore across from Kendall, Kylie took it upon herself to take the other seat available next to Chris, and across from Grace. Even though EJ had only worsened her mood by acting like he, too, was enthralled by everyone but her, she couldn't complain about the seating arrangements. She got to sit next to Chris, and across from Grace, so at least she wouldn't be weighed down by the bad vibes that she liked to claim her brother and Nicki tended to carry around with them, or by any disapproving looks that Kendall was bound to send her way for just about any move that she made. She had barely been paying attention to Chris standing up for her and EJ (though she would have appreciated his challenge to Nicki about being outdone, and she definitely would have risen to that challenge too), she did catch Kendall's brief comment to the server who had left without placing a shot glass down at her seat. "You don't need to be drinking hard liquor either then, Kendall," she countered, clearly annoyed as she set her plate down and took her seat. "You weigh twenty pounds less than me and are the biggest light weight in this room, so don't even go there."

"No problem," he nodded in agreement. The thought of Ariana wanting to talk to him alone made him nervous, but he didn't show it. He didn't have any real reason to be nervous, technically speaking, since they were no longer together, but even so, Brody still felt guilty about having slept with Onika so shortly after their breakup, especially when sleeping with her the first time was what led to him being single. It was sad, probably a little pathetic, even, that had the situation been altered slightly, and Ariana had still come to him with her guilty conscience to admit her unfaithfulness, but he had been faithful the whole time, he didn't think he would have broken up with her over it. He was too in love with the girl, and though it would have hurt him badly, it was a stretch to claim that he most definitely would have terminated the relationship... which was why it hurt even more than she was so okay with ending it, when they had both done each other wrong. Brody knew that cheating wasn't a tit for tat kind of game, where one person's wrong could be righted by another wrong, but he was still a little shocked that things were really over between himself and Ariana.

Ariana watched Kylie and EJ exit shortly after Andre, and it was only then that she met Brody's gaze. A soft smile fell into place... one that felt so natural before she realized it was happening, and pulled it away. "I just wanted to... make sure that you're okay," she said, taking a few seconds in between her words to figure out what exactly to say. In her mind, though, she taunted herself with the idea that of course, he was okay. He was on vacation with his lover that ruined his relationship. He had nothing to lose by coming on this trip. He wasn't sacrificing his pride and ego like she was. Before she could allow him to continue, because honestly, there was a part of her that was going to feel even worse if he confirmed that he was okay when she wasn't, she continued to speak. "I just want this summer to go well for the both of us, and I don't want things to be awkward. I know that we already discussed all of this briefly, but... I don't know. I guess I'm just confirming that I want things to be normal... whatever this new normal is. I need this summer to spend time with Chris, and clearly you need some time to reconnect with your sisters too," she continued, a small nod to the way that she had watched Kylie silently and coldly react to him a minute before, "So, I want you to know that I want the both of us to have fun, in whatever sense that means." She was giving him as close to a blessing as she could muster, for him to have a summer romance with Nicki if that was what he wanted, even though she knew that he didn't really need her blessing. He didn't need it while they were dating, so he definitely didn't need it now that they were broken up.

Brody knew Ariana too well to think that she really meant what she was saying. He would give her credit for trying to be strong, and trying to make things work, but he didn't think that she was really okay with adjusting to this "new normal", as she put it, as she acted. He hoped she wasn't, at least. It was selfish, but in the same unspoken way that Ariana was thinking, Brody was also hoping that she felt at least a little bit of pain without him. "I want the same thing, Ari. We're on the same page, trust me. I guess this isn't what either of us really planned on happening this summer, but I think we can still make it work. We've got a lot of cool stuff on the agenda, and even though I think we both need some space to find ourselves again, just know that I'm always here if you ever need me. Not even in the boyfriend-way, but you know... just if you ever need anything."

"Thanks," Ariana smiled, trying not to make her response sound curt, but also not having anything else to add. This was awkward, there was no way to deny that, but as uncomfortable as it all was, at least Ariana could say that she had been the one to start this summer off on the best foot possible between the two of them. Though it felt unnatural not to wait for Brody, she also felt compelled to act more blatantly independent, so with her plate of food, she headed outside, and gravitated towards the more empty side of the table, where she assumed Andre and Brody would end up sitting. She missed the exchanges between her brother and Nicki, and Kylie and Kendall, so she was content with sitting down peacefully, more concerned with having her wine glass filled than for any of the childish drama.

Brody was only a few steps behind Ariana, and like her, assumed one of the few empty seats leftover. He, too, hadn't heard the conversation between his sisters and the others, that was on the brink of becoming more dramatic than necessary, but as he set his plate down and glanced down the table, ready to make an optimistic remark about the food, he could tell by the looks on his sisters faces alone that something had went down. Surprisingly, though, Brody thought that maybe it would be better not to acknowledge it. "So... are we supposed to wait to dig into this food until Andre gives us a nice toast before tequila time, or am I allowed to start eating?" he inquired lightly, raising the empty shot glass that had been placed in front of his seat.
