Personality

Positive Traits:
Independent, extroverted, gregarious, adventurous

Character Flaws:
Rebellious, selfish, irresponsible, moody, insecure

Personality:
Those who know her know that Kylie is definitely an extrovert over an introvert. She's sociable, gregarious, adventurous and confident. She savors selfies, photo shoots and and events where she can show off her appearance, and doesn't mind taking risks with her outfits and style. Her friends know her as a fun-loving and exciting girl who can't resist singing every song that comes on during car rides, and sneaking out at night to go to a party or just get In-N-Out. While she appreciates some of the finer things in life, she's simple at heart and something as simple as going to the beach with close friends can make her happy.

Her independence is something that has caused much controversy over the past few years. It's a positive trait in many aspects, since she isn't easily influenced by other people and has a strong willed personality. She doesn't mind setting new trends and standing out and is rarely a "follower" of a group. However, it can be argued that Kylie wants to be independent more than she actually is, and that more than being independent, she's rebellious. If she doesn't want to do something, she's not going to do it, but if she's told to do something but someone of authority, she's going to do the complete opposite of what they say, just because. It's passive aggressive, counterproductive and immature, but she's addicted to the attention, and getting it in a negative fashion is the only way she really knows. Although she isn't going to be the girl who can be talked by a group of her peers into doing something, there are certain people in her life who have a big influence on her (ex. her mother and sisters) and her actions become less of her own when she's around them. It's a bad thing, yes, but on her part, the intentions behind that are just as innocent as her having grown up thinking that her older siblings were amazing and cool, and just trusting what they say to be true now.

Her level of maturity depends on who you ask. When you look at the way she acts in public, you would imagine her to be a twenty-five-year-old. She's been crashing the club scene since she was sixteen, is an experienced alcohol user and even experiments with cocaine and ecstasy when it's given to her. If she's in the mood, she can have in-depth conversations with people and is though she isn't exactly well-spoken during interviews, she's not an idiot. The way she dresses has been a hot topic for people with nothing better to do, and overall, people tend to think that she acts too old for her age. She is only nineteen, though, which means she can be naive, reckless and immature for a little bit longer. A lot of the "mature" things she does are done to spite her parents or garner attention, both of which are more childish than they are mature. The media has painted a picture of her being the next Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton - the child who grew up too fast, with everything given to them, and will eventually take a painful spiral downward. They might not be wrong.

History
Image
History:
The first eight or nine years of Kylie's life were pretty normal. Her parents both had some fame in their own right, with her father being Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner, and her mother being the ex-wife of OJ Simpson's lawyer, but they weren't famous to an extent where Kylie ever dealt with paparazzi as a child. She was given a fairly normal childhood, though it was definitely a privileged one. Though she had eight half-siblings in total, plus one full sister, Kendall, she spent most of her youth with Kendall, and her siblings from her mother's side. She did get to know her half-siblings through her father, and she always considered them to be siblings too, but they definitely were never as close, given that those children lived with their mother, and were much older than her. Her their half-siblings were older than her too, with Kourtney being eighteen years older, Kim being seventeen years older, Khloe being thirteen years older, and Rob being eleven years older, but she spent at least a few years living in the same home as the latter two, and Kourtney and Kim were always around even if they weren't constantly living in the home. Who she was the closest with, though, was always Kendall. They were partners in crime and best friends, and though they could fight like cats and dogs, Kylie always considered Kendall to be her closest alliance in life.

When their family's reality show launched, Kylie thought it was the coolest thing in the world. She wasn't camera shy like Kendall, and was much more ready and willing to have her time to shine. She didn't mind doing silly things in front of the camera, especially because her mother indirectly encouraged her to do so before the cameras actually started rolling. She was entering a more dangerous phase of her life then, when she would no longer know what the word privacy actually meant, but Kylie was on board for the ride no matter what. Being the youngest in her family, it's definitely safe to say that Kylie grew up in front of the cameras. She went from a little nine year old girl to a nineteen-year-old ridden with controversies and scandals, while everyone with a television could watch and offer their commentary. She knows that she can't complain - that this is a life that people dream of, and that if she really hates it, that she could always opt out now, but this is all she knows. She barely remembers life before there were cameras in every room of her house, so it's hard to even know if she hates this life of fame, because she doesn't know any alternative.

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...

Hex Code:#89c63d


Brody and Chris were friends for many reasons, but the fact that they were both very into fitness had been one of the few things that continued to link them together in the modern day, where their interests were beginning to differ. For as long as Brody could remember, Chris was one of his best friends. They went to school together, grew up hanging out with the same friends, and had fun partying and living it up after high school. Although Brody was pretty content with indulging in alcohol and girls during college, enough so, that he neglected school to a point that he genuinely regrets now, it's clear to him now, that even when he acted like that, he was still different than Chris. He still got his college degree, he never ended up in rehab once, nonetheless three times, and he was never truly out of control like his childhood best friend was. What baffled Brody, was how Chris got to that point. When they were partying together, it was easy for Brody to assume that Chris was just as in control as him. Sure, he knew his friend had a more relaxed vision for his life than Brody did, but he expected Chris to get a grip on his life at some point.

Strangely, Brody still isn't sure, to this day, if Chris has actually grown up. He's proud of him for founding SWERVE, and the success that his gyms are having in Manhattan, but anyone who knows Chris knows that it isn't his blood, sweat and tears behind that. It's the effort of some guy Chris' father hired, that's making Chris' business a success. Though Brody would never delve into the topic with Chris, he thought that it was pretty obvious that the Rockefellers were probably at a point where they were embarrassed at the lack of drive that their son possessed, so putting together this facade under his name was their last option at preserving the family's image in regards to their firstborn. Though it was an act that would sell to most of the world, since Chris' interest in physical health was probably enough to sell the idea that he was running this, to the general public, Brody could laugh out loud at the idea of Chris constructing business plans, working out deals with vendors, and so on. Although he was well aware that he and Chris had grown apart, compared to where they stood ten years ago, Brody was hopeful that this summer would bring them back to where they used to be in their friendship. He missed the good times he used to have with Chris.

Though he had his headphones on for most of it, Brody felt like spending the first few hours of the morning working out with Chris in the fitness center was a good way to start the trip. He had arrived late last night, so he hadn't had much time for socializing before crashing in bed, and was excited to see what everyone else in the house was up to now... or after he showered. That was his first stop once they got back to the main area of the villa, and once he was finished with that, he texted the others while getting dressed.

To: Nicki
Reminder that if anything goes wrong on this trip, you're gonna get blamed for it ;). No pressure. On that note... what's for lunch? After spending 3 hours out-lifting Rockefeller, I've worked up a pretty decent appetite.

To: Kendall, Kylie
You two get here alright?

Like Brody, after spending a few hours in the gym, Chris hit the shower, and following that, all that was on his mind was food. Or that was true, at least, until he headed down the hallway and happened to pass by a bedroom with an open door, only to get a glance of Kylie standing inside in front of a mirror. A grin spread across his face, reflecting the pure amusement he felt as he watched her take a picture of herself in the mirror, unaware of his presence for that moment. He could have kept watching until he ended up snickering aloud and forcing his presence to be uncovered, but he opted against that, and as he leaned against the doorway, he said, "Look who finally showed up. I thought you were gonna second guess all of this, remember that you're too good for us common folk, and bail at the last minute." As far as Christopher knew, no one knew about him and Kylie sleeping together a handful of times over the past few months. He didn't know that Nicki had actually walked in on them doing it, and he didn't know that Kylie had confided in Kendall about it, either. He figured that he would have known by now if anyone important knew, like Nicki or Brody, so he was still feeling confident, and brazen, even, about flirting with her in places where he had a chance of being caught. He was in the mindset where no one other than the two of them knew anything, so no one had any reason to be suspicious or think that he was talking to her in anything other than an innocent way.

The only reason why Kylie's door was open to begin with, was because she had already left her bedroom once to start going downstairs for lunch, only to realize that she had forgotten her phone in her room, so she returned, and after catching a glimpse of herself in the mirror, she couldn't resist taking a selfie only because the lighting in the room right now was too good to turn down. It wasn't an Instagram-worthy picture, that was for sure, but she would save it in her camera roll anyway. Had Christopher not startled her, she probably would have spent another five minutes trying to find the perfect angle, but she nearly dropped her phone in surprise when he spoke up. She regained her composure, walking over to him slowing. With a small smirk of her own, she admitted, "Can't say it didn't cross my mind, but my family's got enough drama going on right now. Didn't need to hand Kendall a reason to start World War III on top of everything else."

"Well, then remind me to thank Kendall, because I don't think I would've done well on the trip going through Kylie withdrawals." He was being cheesy, but purposely so as he remained standing in the frame of the door. It didn't surprise him that Kylie would have tried backing out of the trip, which was why he brought it up. He was friends with Kylie, but the extent of their friendship wasn't public, so that probably didn't count. She had Kendall, and EJ and Grace, and that was more than enough fun there, but he knew Kylie. She liked her other friends, back in LA. She liked being able to jet from Los Angeles to New York, and then to Miami, on a whim, or because someone had pissed her off and she needed to escape and be reckless. Kendall was no Ariana, but a part of Chris felt like he understood how Kylie wanted to have a separate life from her family sometimes, with friends that were only hers, and no one else's. Nonetheless, he was glad that she was here. It would give his reckless side something to thrive on for the week.

"Save it, Chris. I don't think your hoe-stess would appreciate hearing that kind of talk," Kylie said, rolling her eyes as she pressed her hand against his bare chest to push him out of her way, so she could step into the hallway. Though she wished it wasn't there, her smile was still on her face, as it was impossible for her to not feel a bit elated, maybe even exhilarated, flirting with Chris like this. There was no denying that Kylie was attracted to him. Honestly, if she wasn't actually hungry, she could have pulled him into her room right then, just to get him to shut up for the moment. Regardless of the physical attraction, though, she didn't love him. Chris was attractive, but he also represented something else to Kylie. He was someone that she wasn't supposed to be allowed to have, so having him, given that, was what really turned her on.

"Hey, don't bring Andre into this. He might be a little promiscuous, but let the man live," Chris said, knowing perfectly well that Kylie was talking about Nicki. The only way that he could properly respond to that was to maintain his playful attitude right now, because he knew that Kylie was actually right when she said that Nicki probably wouldn't be keen on him acting like the success of this week depended on Kylie's presence. In reality, it didn't depend on Kylie's presence, and Chris knew that. He could have just as good of a time without the Jenner there, but with her here, it would be extra fun. Onika was a topic for a different time, one when Chris was feeling more serious and thoughtful, and getting on that level about her would definitely never happen to Kylie.

"You're so annoying," was all that Kylie said to him as she purposely took the lead in walking downstairs, and into the kitchen. She was surprised to see that so many people were already in there, even though the surprise wasn't really well-warranted, given that the staff had made the lunch announcement at least five or ten minutes ago. "Hi," she said, opting for a mass greeting, and ignoring how forced and awkward it came out as she put on a smile, abandoning Chris as she made her way towards Grace and Kendall, to check out the food.

Kylie's minimal greeting made him want to comment on that, but he opted to antagonize Nicki instead, mostly because he missed her... and doing it to her. "Really? A glass of wine, Nicki? Are we in a vineyard of Italy, or in fucking Mexico? Maybe us Rocekefellers just aren't as classy as you Johnsons, because I know that whenever Ariana gets her ass down here, she's gonna remind you all of how the Rockefellers live life in Mexico, and want a shot of tequila, A-S-A-P," he said, though anyone who knew Ariana knew that that was probably the last thing she would ask for. "Scotty Boy, my man, I know you and Blondie know what being in Mexico entails, yeah?" he said, enjoying himself too much, indirectly at Nicki's expense, as he greeted Scott with a pat on the back. "Tequila shots to kick off this summer, or are you too much of a bitch?" he said, playfully provoking the guy that Chris knew couldn't back down from a challenge.

Grace couldn't resist blowing Andre a kiss to add to their playful flirtations, especially once Nicki made it perfectly clear that she wasn't quite a fan of the show they were making. To Grace, that only meant be even more obnoxious with it, but Scott came in, followed by Christopher and Kylie, so Grace couldn't quite play it up as well as she wanted to. That was no problem, though. They had alllllllll summer for that kind of mischief. "Watch yourself, Rockefeller. Us Eastwoods can out drink seasoned alcoholics," she warned aloud, though with little seriousness behind her words, before she turned back to the girls to speak to them more directly, rather than to the group as a whole. "I'll do a shot if we're doing the whole toast-to-summer kinda thing, but I could go for a nice glass of white wine with this lunch," she said, as she followed Andre and Kendall's lead in grabbing a plate to start eating.

She instinctively grabbed one for Kylie too, handing it to her as she instantly noticed the almost uncomfortable vibe that the girl came in with. Grace was not going to allow that vibe to stick around, but she wasn't going to address it specifically yet. Instead, she raised her voice a touch now, looking at Nicki with the best serious and annoyed expression that she could muster up as she added, "That is, if Nicki would stop hoarding the wine for herself. You're probably one of the seasoned alcoholics I was referring to. You're lucky that you're pretty on the inside, because I'm sure by now, your liver is an ugly little mess, my love." Grace was absolutely talking out of her ass at this point, because it was nearly common knowledge that Nicki was one of the more responsible ones within their group. Grace could definitely give her credit for being more easily influenced into having fun than Kendall, but she still wasn't even comparable to an alcoholic, in terms of drinking that heavily and regularly. "Where's my baby EJ?" she asked, looking to Kylie as if she would somehow know better than Nicki or Andre. She was curious about where Ariana and Brody were too, but since they were both missing, she just instantly assumed they were together, even though she knew about their breakup. Plus, she didn't really care about where Ariana was, and she was sure that Brody could fend for himself, wherever he was.

When Andre would - eventually because it was bound to happen now that they were all going to be trapped in vacation home after vacation home together - find out about Christopher and Kylie, and that being one of the reasons why Onika was where she was with Brody currently, he was going to feel a bit more rightfully assertive in his already profound protectiveness over her when it came to the eldest Rockefeller. He had never supported the close friendship his sister had formed with the guy, citing Chris' reckless and near suicidal behavior as a reference for his distaste. He was a bad influence and even if Nicki herself had an outstanding level of self-control, it didn't matter to Andre. Chris, more than even Grace sometimes, fueled her impulsive tendencies. More than that, though, was Andre's distrust for the way her gaze would linger on the male, the stirrings of longing he wished he would have been able to cut short the second they had arisen. Especially considering the fact that the guy in question hardly seemed worthy of Nicki or even like he was interested in what she would want, which was a relationship. Nicki didn't do flings and Andre wished she didn't do Christopher Rockefeller, but that was for another day. For now, though, he wasn't being antagonistic towards Chris when the man arrived, but he also wasn't oblivious to the fact that his sister's frame went frigid when she saw him. He couldn't tell if Kendall had noticed because she had already released Nicki and he wasn't banking on anyone else paying attention Andre didn't make a face nor do anything spectacular, like immediately demand what the fuck had happened, but he did pointedly grab a clean plate and take two large steps to his sister, preferring it to her with a silent demand before she could even request a refill of her wine. Taking it, Nicki beamed at Grace, not even bothering to acknowledge Chris nor Kylie's meager greeting. All she saw when she looked at either of them was her own heart breaking and now was not the time to cry again, especially over someone who obviously didn't care. Faintly, she wondered what was taking Brody so long.

"All of this coming from the chick who likes to hoard Kendall on a regular basis," she replied cheekily, casually beginning to fill her plate by grabbing onto a few crostinis. "You're lucky you're the cute one cuz I don't know how this friendship would have lasted otherwise." It wasn't an actual meal yet, but she figured that the piercing stare her brother had given her a moment ago would dissipate if she at least looked like she was going to eat something. It wasn't her fault that her appetite diminished a bit when her stomach dropped at the first sight of Christopher and Kylie together. Andre caught Gerard's eye, who was already bringing out another bottle of the wine Nicki was drinking. He hadn't put away the first one, either. "You heard the man, G," he exclaimed, relaxing his own frame now that he had a plate of food. "Bring on the tequila. Us Johnsons apparently have a reputation to protect." The staff member nodded and started instructing a few of the servers. Contrary to popular belief, Andre was very much capable of letting loose and having fun. He just didn't do it in the near image-ruining and honestly self-destructive ways that both Scott and Chris seemed to enjoy doing it. He could drink with the best of them and party as hard, if he so pleased. He just wasn't pressed to burn a hole through his liver or rack up as many DUIs as a few of his counterparts.

Neither of the siblings bothered to even answer Grace about EJ's whereabouts, mostly because Andre didn't care now that he had text his baby brother and also because Nicki wasn't paying attention. She was too busy sidling past a still browsing Kendall to get one of the smallest pieces of chicken along with some of the fennel panzanella. "We've got all week to be cooped up inside. Let's eat outside," she told Kendall meanwhile. She felt unsafe and like she wasn't getting enough air in the kitchen, and the veranda had a nice sized table for her guests. Perhaps Nicki was being a bit dramatic, but at least she wasn't loud with her discomfort. And it was always easy for her to put on a big enough smile to fool even her mother. Her stomach still churned uncomfortably and she felt less inclined to eat, but it would be too obvious if she didn't. Plus, Nicki wasn't the greatest liar in the house; she wasn't sure, especially with how fragile she suddenly felt, that she could pull of saying that she had eaten enough at breakfast. Especially with Andre being the only one who knew that she didn't. As if he sensed her displeasure, Nicki felt her other hand have some added weight and when she glanced to it, Gerard had filled her practically empty glass with more wine. She smiled, a little too grateful to have more alcohol in her belly. "Thanks, love. Bring the shots out on the veranda." With her other hand about to scoop some of the summer salad on her plate, a meager portion, Nicki set her wine glass down to pull out her phone and text Brody.

To: Brody
Where are you?

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.

"And you're lucky that you've got a nice ass, or else I don't know how this friendship would have even started," Grace countered, a smirk present on her face as she responded to Onika. She was definitely in a good mood this morning, but who wouldn't be? She was in a beautiful home, surrounded by beautiful people, with only good times planned. When Ariana came down, Grace had to restrain herself to not roll her eyes at the mere energy that the brunette brought into the room with her, and her presence was the best reminder that it was possible that there might be drama involved in the good times too, but Grace tried to look past it. She and Ariana had no real problems at all. Ariana just seemed pretentious and condescending; she didn't need to do anything personally to Grace, for her to feel that way. Even if she was quite content with the idea of ignoring Ariana all summer, Grace would have been flat out lying if she were to claim that she wasn't interested in seeing how everything progressed between the Rockefeller daughter, and Brody. Even being fairly uninformed on their relationship compared to the others who were closer with Brody and Ariana, Grace could tell that that was going to be a show worth watching, when drama started going own.

As Kendall led the way outside, Grace was still busy picking out what she wanted to eat for lunch, but that wasn't even enough of a distraction to keep her from responding when Kendall announced that she was sitting next to Nicki. "I already claimed the seat next to Nicki, so I guess you'll have to sit on my lap!" she called out after them, in no way feeling like she should slow down on the comments any time soon. She was only getting started, and with tequila and wine on the menu, the prospect of her becoming any more refined today was absolutely obsolete. As Grace decided which piece of chicken looked best for her plate, she distractedly responded to Kylie, saying, "When you find him, smack him on the head and tell him it's from his boo, for running late."

"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 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.

Though she would jokingly insist that the sentiment did not exist if he ever questioned her on it, Scott's presence was genuinely going to be missed once he dismissed himself, claiming that his team had just accepted a new role that he needed to immediately be back in California to work out the logistics for. When he had readily agreed with her on wanting to just ignore the situation and presently enjoy their lunch, Nicki couldn't help but ungracefully snort out a giggle at his accusation of Chris being a fuck-up. Under most circumstances, unless she was feeling that playful as well with the male in question, she didn't necessarily favor when people reiterated a fact about Christopher that wasn't necessarily fair nor true. However, given her current temperament and what could have escalated into an actual problem, she couldn't help but heartily agree with a much brighter smile than the ones she had been giving before. It was enough of a mood lift on Scott's part that she was capable of ignoring, for the moment, the sting that accompanied Chris' unnecessary egging in favor of acknowledging her little brother's arrival. "Ummm...I'm sorry, but I'm pretty sure this seat does not have your name on it and I'm enough Johnson for both of my babies, thank you very much," she replied cheekily.

She was still playing with her food as opposed to eating it, but she definitely noticed the shot glasses being filled and Andre making his way over, muttering something lowly to one of the staff. Not bothering to question it, and thinking it had something to do with Scott rushing off and going on about needing to pack, she forked enough of the salad on her fork that would disallow Andre to fix her with any kind of look, and then looked up at Chris. "Besides, Chris, I'm pretty sure the last person at this table who I'd consider to be competition is Earvin the third over here," she continued teasingly, casting a bright grin at her younger brother followed by a wink. Just about to put the forkful in her mouth, she just had to add, "You know I could go way harder than you if I wanted to, baby boy." Andre only had just tuned into the conversation, settling into his seat, but he definitely checked in early enough to hear that foolishness. Which was why he cast his sister a derisive glance. "A little early for you to be starting them lies, sis," he told her, a smirk tugging at the corner of his lips. By that time, feeling a bit lighter but definitely ready for a shot with or without the others, Nicki had already pushed the forkful of salad in her mouth and set the fork down on her plate to bat her lashes at him. "I've got no idea what you're talking about, Dre. I'm a smol chocolate cinnamon roll, just ask Kendall." Chuckling, Andre didn't even wait for the aforementioned female's response. He just rolled his eyes and stated, bluntly, "Bullshit." Nicki just laughed into the palm of her hand.

When Brody and Ariana finally settled with them, Andre almost waited to see if Nicki would react obviously. But she didn't, though he was pretty sure that had more to do with the wine settling in her system. It would've made him frown, but Brody had spoken up and that, in turn, made him grin. Gesturing to Nicki, he began "I mean, if you want to be like that heathen over there, then by all means." Nicki had half the mind to throw one of the napkins that had been brought out at him and he must have known where her thoughts went because Andre couldn't help but deliver a short laugh. "Jerk," was her stage-whisper. Still chuckling, Andre waited until the other shot glasses were filled before speaking again, and then lifted his own. "Anyways, since some people couldn't wait and others mentioned it, I guess I can do the cheesy and completely unnecessary toast. To a summer of finally getting to relax, enjoying our travels, the adventures we're bound to have, and most importantly, enjoying us." There was a small pause and then, bracing himself mentally, Andre knocked the alcohol back. He was pretty certain that there would be a lot less of them enjoying one another as time went on, the secret pessimist that he was, but he wasn't going to be the one to verbally curse them with the thought. A little superficial hope was necessary, even at this early stage of the game.
