Personality:
{Kind}{OCD}{Attentive}{Organized}{Feisty}{Goofy}
Aliee can be described as being straight forward and sometimes blunt. Accompanying that notion, she is extremely organized. She plans everything out including her day. Aliee will not start getting ready in the morning unless there is a schedule for the day. Looking at her calendar anyone would see she has at least two weeks planned out. This flows straight into her attentiveness. She keeps a close eye on everything she is involved in, wanting whatever she has her hands on to go off without a hitch. This was partly why she was chosen out of the group to plan everything out in pranking the mainlanders. Completely the straight forward package deal, is her tendencies or otherwise OCD. If everything is not perfect to her she will have a small mental breakdown. Aliee will only walk through doors with her left foot first, and she will only take an even amount of sips. Those two are just the tip of the iceberg.

Despite all the aforementioned, Aliee has a goofy side. She can be playful around people she knows and she likes to make tons of jokes. Especially with her closest friend Roselani. Getting her around the other female is like seeing a whole new alter ego. Everything about her becomes more lively. That is why she considers Roselani to be her best friend. Rolling onto another side of her is her kind side. Aliee can be friendly to people she likes to be around. There is one exception to her kindness rule and that's Hiwalani. She doesn't like her very much and can be a little more than rude to her at times. But overall she can be pleasant to other people in the group.

Place of Origin:
Las Angeles, California
History:
Aliee has had several road blocks growing up. When she was six her father walked out on her and her mother making them hit a financial hard spot. Her mother owned a flower shop in LA and the business started going south. It was time to make a huge decision so her and her mom moved to Hawaii when Aliee was ten. Things didn't get any better from there. It was too expensive to open up a store on any of the islands in Hawaii so her mother ended up working for a resort as a maid. Her and her mom lived in a small bungalow that has two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living room.

Knowing she was a mainlander and not the richest of people, the teasing in school began. There were several times she would come home crying to her mother from all of the harsh treatment she received. Aliee pulled back from everyone and tried be by herself as much as possible in school. It wasn't until Marlon stuck up for her one day that the teasing started to reside. When Aliee was 12, while on a school trip in Koa Pōmaika`i Lagoon , she got her power of telekinesis. She isn't sure why to this day she gained her power, maybe it's because she accepted the locals and they accepted her as well. It's truly a mystery.

Aliee gained more popularity as she got older, but another disaster struck the first summer of her being 16 years old. While partying with some of her friends, she had a little too much to drink and rounded up being alone with a mainlander. He took advantage of her and forcibly raped her. That night changed her forever. It was the beginning of her OCD and alcoholism. Aliee had a thirst for perfection after that because she thought she could have changed the outcome of that night if she had did everything just right. Also she didn't want to burden anyone with her problems so she kept it all to herself, leading to alcohol being her only escape from her problems.


Theme Song: Chandelier-Sia

Anything else:
Aliee has a pet cat named Isis and a cat face tattoo on her ankle and another on her wrist.

Hiwalani-Noa smiled her dimpled smile in her sleep, rolling over as her dream went on; Her dreams were basically reality. She dreamed often of basking in the rays of the sun on her island, Ukupanipo. She had been visiting the small island since she was a child and nobody else ever went there - With the recent exception of her cousins and Keo's irritating friends. (She was going to fix that issue later.) She had named it after her favorite Hawaiian God - And her father's nickname. But her dream didn't last long, being rudely awakened by her little sister pouncing on her at the same time her alarm clock went off. “Ho`âla, kaikua'ana! Ho`âla, Hiwalani-Noa!”, Lulua‘ina screeched. The brunette groaned and rolled over, taking Lulua‘ina with her as she hit the floor.

“Waiho,” she grunted as she grabbed the chubby little girl by her feet and dragged her out of her room, quickly running back into her room and slamming the door behind her. The small child spent a few minutes banging on the door before giving up and leaving. Noa looked over at the clock and shook her head. What eight year old was up and screaming at seven thirty during the summer?! At least she was going back home today and Noa could get some stuff done without Lulu in her way. She was in and out of the shower in a flash, slipping on her favorite black bikini and a pair of capri sweats before scanning her dresser.

Most women her age had loads of makeup scattered across their room - Not her. She hardly had any hair ties either. Her dresser was covered with pictures and piercings , of which she grabbed a few. An anchor for her navel, a light up one for her tongue, her favorite industrial barbells, and a glow in the dark pair for her shark bites. Admiring her piercings and tattoos, she ran her fingers through her hair and fluffed the knee-length locks before grabbing her Jericho backpack while sliding on her lucky bracelet and heading out, calling out to her father. “A hui hou! Aloha au la ‘oe Makuakane!” She was out the door before her father could reply, knowing he was there to pick up Lulu and was probably fixing her breakfast. The house she lived in was her grandfather's, Kona. More than likely he was already hitting the waves.

She grabbed the keys to the blue ATV parked in the paved driveway, soon peeling out and heading away from her home on the beach and into town. She stopped at several stalls and small shops to pick up things that were placed carefully into her backpack; a couple of apples, some sandwiches, a bottle of whiskey, and a container of cherries; It was all that she needed to start her morning. She made a few other stops to deliver a few things as well. On the days that she wasn't sleeping in, gone camping, or sleeping in the ocean she made herself useful by getting up early to help some of the vendors and shop keepers by delivering packages like groceries to some of the elderly people.

Now? Off to Hiʻiaka Studio to have some “Noa-Time” before she decided to start her day for real. Though, her entire life seemed to just be “Noa-Time”. She was really hoping to go camping on Ukupanipo tonight after the big beach luau that her parents were throwing for the graduates their their friends. Her own last two weeks were spent babysitting her little sister and working at both the studio and her father's restaurant and she finally had free time that she intended on spending well. She parked outside, unlocking the doors and slipping inside where she headed directly for Studio Mano where she taught, beginning her yoga on the deck...




2:21pm


Joy of joys, His Royal Highness, Lord Keokolo and his groupies had decreed via text that they were going to attend the luau as a group. She wasn't exactly excited per se. She still wasn't sure if staying had been the best idea, nor was she entirely sure that hanging out with Keokolo and his super powered groupies was a keen idea. She couldn't remember the last time that she actually fully enjoyed being around him and to make it worse he had Aliee hanging around him and Quinn had to get powers along with Nate. She didn't mind Dax sometimes and Nate was her favorite besides Rose and Kye. The chance to flirt with Nate was not going to go by though she didn't have high hopes. Keo tended to make a habit of sleeping around with every guy or girl that she actually liked that wasn't related. But Keo didn't seem to much like Nate so it would be fun to get under his skin for once. If only Nate wasn't a package deal with Titan Temper Twin number Two.

Hiwalani-Noa sighed as she lounged at one of the outside tables in front of her dad's restaurant, staring out at the waves as tourists took pictures and swam and attempted to surf. She gave a light smirk whenever one fell off of their board. What she wouldn't give to be out there scaring them right now. Because she hated Haole? Nope. Because it was fucking hilarious. Instead, she had gotten a text from a rather handsome friend that was arriving soon and she had promised him a free meal and a drink. She closed her eyes and leaned her head back so that it caught the sun, the rest of her tanned body shaded by the grassy umbrella protruding from the center of the table. She had to admit that she missed being home in the summer time though. There was no place like home.





Translations

“Ho`âla, kaikua'ana! Ho`âla, Hiwalani-Noa!”“Wake up, big sister! Wake up, Hiwalani-Noa!”

“Waiho,”“Get out,”

“A hui hou! Aloha au la ‘oe Makuakane!”“See ya later! I love you, daddy!”

He looked around the room, taking in the scenery before him. The walls lined with beautiful artwork. Pictures held by picture frames hung delicately upon the wall reminded him of the time he went to the art museum in New York. The hall way he walked through let into the living room area. Small, but good enough for one or perhaps two people. In the living room was a sofa that transformed into a spare bed, two end tables made of what looked like beach wood which fit the theme of the entire hotel, a beautiful coffee table made of the same wood but intricate in design caught Noel’s eye for a moment as he ran a hand along the table. It was polished and free of splinters. Across from the sofa a rather large flat screen tv rested upon a small entertainment center and the tv itself made by Samsung was at least 42 inches. The kitchen was small, fitting for one person, with a working refrigerator and ice maker built in. There was a top of the line stove, with a sink and dishwasher. This was amazing already. Noel was going to enjoy it here, he could already sense it. As he walked back the way he came, a door was on his right, left if he was coming into the room, and when he stepped through the door he entered into the king’s room. The bed was large, very large, a king size bed if you will. The sheets were on the expensive side; probably cost them more for the sheets than the wall paper. Noel smiled and ran his hand along the edge of the bed feeling the comfort of the mattress and comforter. If he were on an episode of “Cribs” it would be the moment he would say, “this is where the magic happens,” but thankfully he wasn’t.

In the room was another door. This door led to the bathroom. It was evident that the hotel had spent some money on this room and the others as well. Every detail was breathtaking. Even the bathroom had detail put into it. A stand up shower, a Jacuzzi tub, and a luxury sink and toilet, all for just one single man. Yes, he knew now that he would enjoy his time in Hawaii, how could he not? He began his unpacking procedure. First he removed all of his clothes, being careful to keep them all folded. He hung his shirts in the closet adjacent to the bed, and placed his pants and shorts into the dresser that lined the wall across from the windows which showed the beach so elegantly. The blinds were currently drawn and the sunlight was minimal in the room, but the artificial light would suffice for now. It took him a good thirty minutes to unpack all of his belongings and the various pairs of shoes, but when he was done he looked at the clock.

“It’s after nine, so if I take a shower and hit the beach I can still have time to meet the natives,” he said to the empty room, void of life except his own. He smiled, the thought of meeting new people intrigued him. He lined out his outfit and undressed right in front of the window, the curtain drawn to keep him out of jail for indecent exposure. All those years of soccer practice and training had produced a well-defined body, but with his high metabolism, it made it fairly easy to achieve goals. Stepping into the shower, he allowed the water to ease away any remaining doubts and stress that he may have brought with him on this trip. The steam from the shower caressed his mind and massaged his body and when he stepped out of the shower and toweled off, he felt better than he did before he got to Hawaii.

Getting dressed was a minimal effort. He pulled on the white tank, the colorful shorts, and the pair of Sperrys that matched the color of the shorts. His phone was tucked away in his short’s pocket and his room key was placed on his finger like a wedding ring. He gave himself a once over, putting on lotion as his abs rippled with each movement. Shades finished off the ensemble, but instead of putting them on, he closed them and hung them off his short’s pocket.

“Well, here goes,” he said softly as he exited the room, walked down the stairs and prepared to exit onto the beach. He passed a few people who looked like Natives and they were gorgeous. “Well this place doesn’t skimp on the beauty department,” he muttered as he walked.

Keo yanked off his uniform suit with less care than it deserved. Aside from that incident in the boutique, Keo had to deal with a cranky, jet lagged customer regarding room reservations. Somehow it wasn’t clear to the client that making a reservation as soon as you get off a plane isn’t going to cut it when their Platinum and Diamond suites have been booked solid as soon as the first whiff of sunshine four months ago. The phone conversation especially tested Keo’s patience (“I can book the Gold Standard which has an excellent view—yes, of course I can hold while you go through security, how about I send you one of our drivers to pick you up from the airport, so you don’t have to worry about it…”). On top of the dozen other things and loose ends he had to pick up, he barely had time sit still for lunch.

Basically, he had to spend the whole day smiling and lying down and taking it like a bitch, so it was a relief to finally be out of that uniform and letting loose. He was just leaving the changing room when someone tapped him on the shoulder.

"What's up? I mean good day boss."

“Hey!” Keo said, surprised. “I wasn’t expecting you to be around here until tomorrow. Are we excited to go to work?”

Keo put a casual arm around Aliee’s shoulders to bring her closer as they walked and made snarky banter. He said playfully, “I think I’ll get you to scrub the bathroom floors in the suite those bachelorettes’ rented. They had one wild bachelorette party and there's probably some puke to highlight your day.”

"Since you're walking I'm assuming your dick hasn't fallen off yet?"

“Yes, my dick has fallen off and I’m now applying to be a nun.” Keo rolled his eyes at the age-old jab at his sex life, and then he paused in thought, probably not voicing his thoughts on all the sex that nuns might or might not be having.

Aliee elbowed Keo’s side to get his attention. "I got your text by the way. I'm assuming I have to go since you said so."

“Of course you don’t have to go, but it’s free food and booze on Noa so you’d be missing out if you don’t take advantage of that. ” Keo listened to Aliee talk about finding Dax and said, “Yeah, my shift is done for today and not a minute sooner. I thought I was going to go fucking lolo. We can find Dax together then we can find Kye later.”

They find Dax in the parking lot, which is just so typical. “Here, let me.” Keo took Aliee’s place and belted out in his loudest voice, “I AM TOUCHING YOUR X-BOX WITH MY OILY FINGERS.”





Translations:
lolo : crazy; feeble-minded; stupid

“Ah, but we're not going to the beach. Too crowded. Instead, I willI will show you a very, very secret and special place. Come on! Wikiwiki!” She twirled out of his grasp with fluid movement so that his fingers trailed her lower back to her side to her stomach. Grinning, she grabbed him by the hand and tugged him over to her ATV, pushing him into the seat before sitting in front of him. Just in time, because her father had only just gotten out of his car. He lifted a brow but said nothing as his daughter waved in a hurried fashion before taking off with the suit wearing young man. If walking was what Gray wanted to do then he'd get plenty of it on their hike to the grotto. She smiled as the wind hit her face, standing up as she sped up a little, swerving around curves and whooping loudly. She was headed northwest, moving away from the city area. The fauna was growing more dense as she turned onto a dirt trail. She showed no signs of slowing down even though the ATV nearly toppled a couple of times because of her sharp turns. She knew what she was doing!

Having been laughing for a while, she finally pulled into a group of large leaves off the beaten path where she parked the ATV. Sliding off, she motioned for Gray to follow before grabbing his hand and tugging him along. Twigs crunched and mud smushed under her feet as they went further into the Hawaiian jungle. “Hold on!” She stopped and moved behind him, jumping onto his back and using her knees to hold herself there. Covering his eyes, she smiled. “Okay, you go!” The sound of loud, rushing, roaring water alerted them that their destination was near.

One moment they had been peacefully walking, the next he was being tugged along behind her. She was grinning wickedly at him and he couldn't help but grin back, it was just so contagious. The next thing he knew was that he was straddling the ATV and was left to grab on to Noa from behind lest he suffer cracking his skull on the ground. As they sped from the city they nearly fell over several times. He wasn't so sure how Noa had gotten her license for the machine at this point because if it wasn't for him shifting his weight, they surely would of fallen. Surely enough he trusted her more than he trusted most.

Grey had no idea where they were headed but he accepted it with an enthusiastic grin on his face. He was always up for new adventures, even in the thickness of greenery now surrounding them. When they had finally stopped and she began tugging on him again he complied and allowed her to pull him. Wearing a suit and dress shoes was not the outfit for this occasion. Absentmindedly he thought to his $600 shoes, grimacing at the fresh coat of mud on them. So much for looking professional. The further they moved into the jungle, the more anxious he was feeling. "Noa, where are you taking me?" When she hopped on his back, he easily supported her weight. The sound of the crashing water ahead of them made him think, Waterfall?

With one arm he held her to him and with his other he reached for her hands to pry his eyes free. The sight before him left him breathless. It was simply amazing. Honestly, this island would never cease to leave him stunned. Looking over his shoulder he smirked, "What now, chéri?"

“Now, we climb.”

Noa returned his smirk with a grin of her own, pressing her nose against his so that their faces were inches apart. “You might want to change your clothes. I will pay for cleaning.” Giggling, she kissed his nose before shimmying down and waltzing off toward the waterfall. The sight was nothing new to her but it still absolutely blew her mind. She threw her head back, giving a loud “Wooooo!” that reverberated and made her smile larger.

She let her backpack slide from her shoulders, catching it just before it hit the ground. She'd be quite bereft if her sandwiches smushed or her whiskey bottle cracked before they were even touched. After removing her sweats to reveal the matching bottoms to her too, the gray lazy pants went into her backpack and her backpack was tucked within some large leaves. Noa stood with her upper body twisted to view Gray behind her, hands on her hips. “Hurry. I will climb without you, haole.” Despite the name she called him she spoke in a teasing manner, assuring him that she meant no offense. Instead, she strode over to the suit clad young man and gently grabbed the lapels of his jacket, giving her most exaggeratedly saturated flirtatious smile and shoulder shimmy. “Unless you need help.”

She's such a tease, he thought with a smile as she pressed her face to his and kissed his nose. After her comment about him needing help he responded. "I only want help if it involves you helping me undress," he said with a quick wink. Lazily he reached for his tie and loosened it. Reaching up he grabbed her nose and squeezed it, like you would a small child, and twisted away from her to remove the rest of his clothing. Taking his coat off, he gingerly placed it on a low hanging branch. Even if he had a million other suit jackets, he really liked this one. Next was his shirt. He tried hastily to unbutton each button. This, this was one of the reasons he hated dressing professionally, it took so long to disrobe and was generally frustrating when he had a waiting woman on his bed.

As soon as he had the top portion of his clothes off, he began to unbutton his pants. "No peeking," he warned her teasingly. He honestly didn't care if she saw him stark naked. He wasn't ashamed of any part of his body, rather he was pretty cocky about it. Quickly dropping his pants, he slipped his swim shorts that he had brought with him, over his boxers. He was weird like that, layering his swim shorts with boxers, it was just always a quirk of his. Finally ready he returned back to her side, "Ladies first."

“Just try to keep up!”

Noa hadn't peeked, instead blushing at the idea. She only turned when he announced being ready, offering him a smile before taking off to the right. With relative ease she was able to grapple with the perfect hand and footholds that were molded permanently into the reddish brown stone from centuries of others clambering to the top for the thrill of jumping down. She had to hold a bit tighter as the roaring water got louder to her left, spraying her and making it just a bit more difficult to steady herself. The top wasn't too far off and she easily hoisted herself up with a vine.

Turning and kneeling, she got a look at the water crashing down and creating a beautiful number of rainbows. Smiling, she offered her hand down to Gray, leaning over a bit more. “The view is great, huh?” The twinkle in her eye hinted at the double meaning as she grabbed his hand and pulled, a lot stronger than she looked.

Grey had been behind her the whole time, just below climbing where she had once been. So when she had mentioned how great the view was he responded, "It sure was- I mean is!" he finished quickly. After all, her derrière wasn't such an awful view; It was obvious she worked out.

Finally at level with her, he had to admit, she was tougher than she looked, he looked about him. The contrast of the colors from the foliage around them, the rocks, and the water created a kaleidoscope of color. It really was great, he finally allowed to himself. He stood looking down then, "Alright, so I think I should jump first. Ya know, make sure it's safe and shit."

“Don't be such a baby! Come!” Noa made sure she didn't slip on the rocks as water rushed down from the pool of freshwater at the top, grinning. Her hands latched onto Gray's as she made a run for it, throwing them both down the waterfall. The water was warm and them jumping directly into the flow of water only threw them down faster. Noa's squeal of joy from the exhilaration was short lived, cut prematurely by her going under. She had half a mind to hide in the cave behind the waterfall to frighten Gray and make him think she had drowned. But that was just mean. Meaner than throwing him from the top of a waterfall.

Her head broke the surface as she kicked her legs quickly, still holding on to Gray. “That wasn't too bad, was it?” She released him to float on her back, splashing him with her feet. “You sure you'll be able to keep up with me? I don't want to...” She had to pause, her lack of mastery of the English language showing. “Overwhelm you.” She flashed him a smile, turning her head to the side to view him. Water glistening from slightly tanned muscles... Nice.

One moment Gray was overlooking the water, the next he was in it. Breaking through the surface of the water, he cleared the water droplets from his face with his free hand and looked at Noa, "Bad? No. I'm absolutely fine with being cast over a cliff without knowing," he said sarcastically.

When she splashed him he splashed back, but her comment about keeping up proved to tantalizing for him to ignore. "Keep up? Overwhelm me? Honey, is your head screwed on right?" With that he made a lunge for her dragging her under the water, but quickly brought them both back up and held her an arms length away. "Don't go and forget who I am and how unpredictable I can be," he told her sternly, trying to hide his smile but only making him look more boyish with his lopsided grin.

She gave a short scream at being tackled and pulled under but she was clearly enjoying herself. As they came back up she only splashed him again, wriggling out of his grasp and swimming closer to him so that she was leaning against him. “Ah, but you've gotten so predictable. I think you're losing your touch.” She officially issued him a challenge, smirking as she held his gaze, letting her eyes narrow a bit. There was a mocking tone in her voice but still that ever-present twinkle of mischief and teasing dancing in her eyes. “So. Wow me. Unless you've truly gone stale,” she teased some more, patting his cheek in taunting pity, poking her lower lip out in a playful pout.

"Predictable? Ha!" Thinking to himself then, Have I? Then shaking off the thought he wrapped his arms around her waist and pressed his forehead to hers. Her challenge wasn't going to go unanswered. What had she called him? Stale? No, he was anything but that. Just a hairs breathe away from her pouting lips. "Nah, I'll 'wow' you later." And just like that he released her and swam to the bank where he got out and ran his hand through his sopping wet hair. If she wanted to play this game, then he would to, his way of course. His tactics? Being his charming self of course.





6:28pm; Mano's Place


Mano and his brood along with a collective of the graduating class had truly gone all out for this particular luau. The ceiling was decorated heavily with streamers, banners, and balloons and the black light brought attention to the various designs painted on the patrons. The class wanted to have a paint party but Mano wouldn't allow it unless they were volunteering to clean it all up afterward, so it was settled that they'd have a black and white black light party. Glow sticks, bracelets, and rings of all sorts adorned almost every teen and young adult there as many shimmied their way to the bar and flashed their stamps that proved they were of age. The few haole who managed to either sneak in or snag an invitation seemed rather surprised that such a traditional town wasn't celebrating with some sort of ancient tribal ritual. The only thing tribal were the tattoos, paint jobs, and some of the signs.

The music playing was about as varied as it came, switching from a bubblegum pop beat accompanied with a cute dance to some metal and rock to sick beats that provoked a number of people to start shuffling, break dancing, and gyrating with one another. There were a few parents scattered around the party, lurking in corners and watching the kids like hawks to ensure no horrible shenanigans would take place and watching the bars to make sure the kid they knew was only sixteen wasn't getting any drinks. Despite the luau being advertised as “Graduated Seniors and Guests Only”, some teens managed to get in with their older siblings. Obviously none of the graduated seniors – except for a few that had been held back many, many times – were old enough to drink, they all had plenty of cool twenty-one and older friends that they wanted to party the night away with; Plus, the graduating class was pretty small so they needed more people to really get the party going. Mano wasn't complaining. It was more money for his business.

“Ho'omaika'i 'ana! You guys have made it this far and hopefully it will get better! I'm honored to have been asked to sing this year's class song – Even though I didn't even graduate with you... Or ever.” Noa stood on the stage with her headset on, smiling as she spoke to the laughing graduates and friends standing before her. Lahaina wasn't exactly huge, the graduating class only totaling to about forty-something kids. But there were a lot of others there. They cheered her on, silencing as she held her hands up. “Even though you guys picked the absolute cheesiest song from the best movie ever. Here we go!” She pointed to the DJ to get the music started and an immediate cheer went out as she started up into singing.

“Aloha e aloha e

Hawaiian roller coaster ride”


Her hips swayed and body twirled to the song as she worked her mermaid magic and enhanced her voice. As with all of her performances, she exerted her magic and charisma, pouring her heart and soul into it. The people bent to her will, succumbing to her influence as they danced to the music and cheered with the energy. She could feel herself getting a high from it, a megawatt smile on her face that went from ear to ear as she basked in the glory. Adrenaline was still shooting through her even as her performance ended and she let herself off the stage to let other music be played. Her heart was thumping as she shimmied through the crowd to the bar. “Makuakane – Can I get a bottle of scotch? Please?”
She batted her eyelashes rapidly in a satirical manner, knowing full well what the answer would be. Mano kissed his daughter on the forehead and warned her to be responsible before handing her the bottle in question, smiling as she headed out for the beach.

She took a moment to scan what was going on, spotting several people that she knew. Okay. She knew pretty much everyone there because the majority of the people were locals. There were some haole there, obviously, but none of them seemed to be causing too much trouble. She was sure that trouble would come soon enough when they had enough alcohol in their system to let their inhibitions go though. Sighing, she spotted one of the older triplets, Kaniele. There was a light smile on her face but she quickly ducked and moved through the crowd to avoid being seen by him. “Oh! Hey, Noa! I thought I heard you on stage! Wow! Your bikini is awesome! Love the body art. I wish my parents would let me get some tats and piercings.” She accidentally bumped into Ahe, one of the chattiest girls in all of Hawaii. Noa offered her a polite smile and a one-armed hug. “Mahalo, Ahe. Lilo got it for me a few months ago.” She struck a pose to further bring attention to the white bikini that was decorated with a black bow over the top. Her tattoos had all been meticulously painted over so that the designs would glow under the black light.

“I wouldn't hold your breath on that one, though. Your parents are crazy uptight.”

“Everyone's parents are uptight compared to your.”

“True story; I'd love to stay and chat but I've gotta meet some people. Maybe we can dance later.” She gave the girl one more hug before heading out to the designated bonfire that Keo had instructed them to meet at, pulling her phone from the waist of her bottoms to text Gray to meet her there as well. {Hey loverboy! Meet up with me and the crew. Keo'll be there but we both know I'm worth it ;) xoxo} As the warm night wind whipped at her ponytail, she stood obliviously watching the waves lapping the shore, pining for a swim. What she didn't notice was the flare of red hair as a young woman took a seat yards away. While it looked as though she simply wasn't enjoying the party, the woman was watching intently on Noa with a look in her blue eyes akin to that of a stalking predator in the jungle.

Did his sister really just sing the theme song to Lilo and Stitch? While the movie was popular in Hawaii, Kani could only imagine what the senior class was thinking in choosing that song, but also in choosing Noa to perform it. He watched the performance, his gaze shifting around the luau as he looked for any of the group to see if they were here. He watched Noa, a smile on his face as she sung. Her voice was melodic, captivating, enhanced, but only he would catch that. When the song was over, Kaniele sighed and was about to go speak to his sister when she dipped in order to avoid him. He had noticed her looking around and when she spotted him she ducked down and vanished from his sight. He smirked, knowing where she was heading off to, but he hoped like hell she wasn’t inviting Grayson’s ass. One of these days that kid was going to get it straight in the jaw. As he stood around watching the festivities, he couldn’t help but think about Jabari. His three year old son was home with Kona and no one knew aside from Aliee who was Jabari’s mother. Things with Aliee and Kani had been a little rocky at first, but it all smoothed out and they had a very odd friendship, one that Kani adored. They were close, but not as close as Aliee was to Keo. Kani knew that Noa and Aliee weren’t the best of friends, in fact if you stuck both of them in solitary confinement with each other they’d probably battle like two wildcats. Would he ever tell the others about Jabari? He didn’t know, he had kept it a secret to avoid Child Protective Services from taking Jabari, but he wanted them to know so bad that it hurt him to keep it a secret from his family and friends.

“I’ll tell them one day,” he quietly said as he watched Noel dance out of the corner of his eye, “I wonder how he is with kids?”

Sighing, he smiled at Noel who was enjoying the music, and the decorations. He was conversing with so many of the islanders that Kani simply let him have his fun. Kani had gone to pick Noel up before the luau started. They had been texting each other all day long since he dropped Noel off at the Kealoha hotel. He was sort of surprised to hear from Noel, but then again Noel didn’t strike him as the user type, or the type that judged anyone. In fact Noel, to him, was more laid back and party friendly, but what was the male’s story? He looked to be an islander himself, from another island, perhaps Puerto Rican. He could tell by the tint of his skin, the accent he had when he talked, and the way he kissed him when he first met.

Noel had a fun time on the beach prior to the luau. He had done a little shopping, gathering souvenirs from different shops along the beach and simply enjoying himself. The fun part was texting Kani and actually setting up the date to come to the luau. Fitting in wasn’t really a problem for Noel as he did his research prior to coming to Hawaii. He wanted to know all there was because he did want to be able to communicate without a translator. When Kani came to pick him up, Noel felt a bit overdressed. Kani had on a tank top that was black in color, and a pair of orange swimming shorts with a pair of expensive sandals. Noel had dressed to impress with a polo shirt, a pair of expensive shorts and his Sperry’s but in a different color. It was Kani who suggested he change into something more comfortable, and of course Noel made a joke about Kani wanting to see him naked, but Noel had no problem stripping right there in front of Kani in the hotel room. He had gotten dressed in a similar outfit, only his shorts were tie dye in color.

The luau was amazing, and he was meeting new people which he enjoyed. At the moment he was talking to one of the graduating class about the future and college and they were eating it up. He was speaking their language as well, making minimal mistakes here and there, but for the most part it was obvious he wasn’t from Hawaii. Then a song came on, back home they called it a rump shaker, and before he knew it he was gyrating all on Kani’s nether regions, and Kani wasn’t objecting to it either. The two danced for a while before Kani went to the bar to get something to drink. Noel continued to dance, Kani aware that he too wanted something to drink with a kick.

“Wassup pops,” Kani said as he approached the bar his father was serving drinks from. The handshake shared by father and son was unbreakable. His father looked at him with an amused smile.

“So you brought a Haole?” Mano asked clearly seeing Noel dancing with Kani earlier.

“Yea, he’s a pretty nice guy. Name’s Noah and from what I gather he’s from Puerto Rico, but lives in North Carolina.”

“Wow, long flight,” Mano stated as he handed his son the drinks he asked for, two shots of Bacardi 151. Before he handed the drinks to Kani he quickly asked, “Is your friend a lightweight?”

“Nah pops, he’s alright,” Kani replied as he grabbed the two shot classes filled with hard liquor. “Mahalo!”

Mano simply looked at his son and shook his head before returning to whatever he was doing prior to being interrupted by Kaniele. Off Kani went to deliver the alcohol, and as he weaved his way through the crowd of swaying bodies, he nearly dropped the shots twice before making it to Noel.

“Bottoms up,” Kani stated handing the shot to Noel who quickly downed it, making a very ugly face before asking “What was that gasoline?” Kani laughed after downing his and replied, “nah, 151 boo.”

Noel felt the alcohol take over as they shared one more dance before it was time for Kani to depart to the bonfire. He didn’t know how he would break it to Noel, but he had a feeling the guy was going to be alright either way. As they danced, he caught sight of Aliee arriving at the luau, getting a drink and taking one with her in the direction of the bonfire. She didn’t look to particularly pleased to be here, probably because of him, but more directly because of Noa. He knew it was awkward for her to be around him. After all, he was the father of their kid, and yet they were friends, and yet they told none of the “power clique” about this. It was stressful to say the least, but he was certain it would be fine, it had to be, if they were their friends, they would find a way to accept the news when delivered, and respect their decision to keep it secret for various reasons.

Noel looked at Kani who seemed deep in thought and wrapped his arms around the male’s neck staring into his eyes.

“You wanna sit down?” he asked wanting to make sure Kani was okay.

“Nah, I’m cool, you alright?” Kani replied returning the gaze. There was something about this guy, something interesting, something that drew him in and it uneased him a bit.

“Thank you,” Noel said finally as they swayed back and forth.

“For what?” Kani asked with a soft smile as he twirled Noel to the beat of the slow romantic song that was playing in the background. Noel chuckled lightly before returning his gaze to Kani.

“For this,” Noel motioned to everything around them, “no doubt this isn’t a party for any, how do you all say it? Haole? And I appreciate the invite.”

“Hey it’s no biggie,” Kani said, “besides, we’re here to have fun right?”

For a moment Noel felt this moment was right, it was what he was looking for, but it scared him a bit. He had just gotten out of a long relationship, and he wondered what would happen now. He had promised himself he’d not block any outlet during this trip. He would hang out, and see where things went, so as he danced with Kani it became increasingly obvious that there was a mutual attraction there, both physical and mental. Before either knew what was going on, Noel and Kani’s lips were pressed together ever so romantically if only for a brief moment before Kani cleared his throat.

“I...uh....I have somewhere to ummm be and I was hoping I could see you later,” Kani said trying his hardest not to screw it up, or come off as if he didn’t want to be there. Noel smiled and simply nodded.

“It is getting late, and I do need to get back to the hotel, but if you have somewhere to go then go, I’m not gonna stop you,” Noel said kissing Kani on the cheek, “besides, I’ve got some Hawaiian to learn from that man over there,” Noel said pointing to the bartender who coincidentally was his father.

“Good luck with that,” Kani stated laughing softly, “my dad isn’t really the best teacher, but I’m sure you’ll learn something.”

Noel waved as Kani took off in the direction of the bonfire. Noel returned to the party, grabbing a drink and listening to Mano talk and explain some interesting history about Hawaii.

Upon Kani’s arrival at the bonfire, he noticed Aliee right off the bet, he also noticed Noa.

“Good evening ladies,” he said smiling as he hugged his rash sister, and then turned his attention to Aliee, “mi lady,” he said in the best English accent he could muster, giving a bow before giving her a friendly hug, “are you okay?” he asked during the embrace. “Where’s Keo?” Kani asked wondering where the male was since it was his idea to meet here in the first place. They had an interesting relationship, Kani and Keo. They were similar in some aspects but different in others. For instance Keo was indeed a free spirit, and took his sexuality to the extreme while Kani was simply a party guy and loved having fun, he was selective of who he bed, if he bedded anyone at all. All in all Kani loved his family, they all meant a lot to him, every single one of them, even Kye.

While out in her little corner of the world, Quinn wondered about the luau later that night. 'Is everyone going? I wonder if Kye is...' Kye was one of her best friends here. They didn't hang out much due to him being busy with something, but Quinn thinks sometimes that he is avoiding her. She is older than he is, and that might just put him off. "Well, text him and find out!" She did just that. Unlocking her phone, she opened up a text to Kye.

'Hey, what are you doing right now? Wanna hang out before the luau tonight? :D' Hopefully, he wouldn't take too long to reply.

...

Kye looked around on the beach with a smile before waving to the guys. He needed to head back to Keo's house if he didn't want to miss his cousin. "Aloha everyone," Kye calls as he waves to them, jogging towards the steps leading towards Keo's house. He passed a haole on his wave, giving a slight wave to be friendly as he went.

The following hours he helped and hung out with Keo. Changing to the black and white for the party, Kye worse his white swim trunks and a black tanktop. He was working on getting face paint on in a familiar pattern from Hawaii when his phone buzzed drawing his attention away from the mirror in the bathroom. Using his pinky finger, Kye unlocked his phone to look at the text.

'Hey, what are you doing right now? Wanna hang out before the luau tonight? :D' read a text from Quinn. Kye backed up as he thought about what he just read. He sat down on the toilet, ignoring Keo, though he wasn't sure if Keo was even talking to him at the moment. Quinn wanted to hang out with him. He needed to be cool, he just needed to be cool. Simple? For some people, not including Kye.

Taking a deep breath, he wiped the glow in the dark white paint off his fingers on a towel. He sat back again, smiling as he texted back, 'Just finished with painting my face for the luau. I gotta pick up some stuff for the party tonight, I'll pick you up and drive you to it if you want.'

Kye had to pick up some food for the house and for the party, volunteering to bring food to help his friends from school celebrate. He grabbed his phone and walked out if the bathroom, calling to Keo as he headed down the stairs, "I'm going to go pick up the stuff for the party. Meet you there," Kye finished as he grabbed his keys of the counter and headed outside to the jeep.

...

When Kye texted her back, Quinn was delighted. It means he wasn't too overly busy like he normally is. Quickly opening up the message and reading it made her even more happy. She wouldn't be alone at the luau and be stuck with Keo or her brother. Even more exciting was that Kye was offering her a ride to the luau, meaning he would be there. 'That's really awesome and I would totally love a ride. You're the best, Kye!' After that, she ran home, getting a shower and figuring out what to wear. This would be the first time Quinn was going to a party since she met Keo. Quinn glanced at the time. "He'll be here soon..." Her parents were just getting home. "Hey! Nate and I are going to a luau tonight. We'll be home late. I have someone picking me up in a few minutes." Quinn called to them. Hearing her father's normal grunt and her mother's sigh of acceptance made her squeal a bit. As she was finishing her makeup, she heard a car pull into the driveway.

...

Pulling out, he paused just before going on the road. It was Quinn again. 'That's really awesome and I would totally love a ride. You're the best, Kye!' Kye smiled at the text, sending her back a quick text, 'Thanks, see you soon.' Kye tucked his phone away and pulled out, heading into town and the store. He grabbed a pack of waters and some other groceries that weren't refrigerated and dumped them in the back of his jeep.

If he left for Quinn's place now, he would have plenty of time to pick her up and get to the party in time, or around when it would get fun.

He drove towards her house almost leisurely as he went. He wanted to seem cool if anyone he knew saw him, needed to make them think he wasn't nervous.

Kye pulled onto Quinn's street, seeing her parents' car in the drive way. He looked stupid and probably reckless to most adults, but if her parents knew him at all, they would know he was probably the most harmless of the natives she hung out with. He parked, for out, and walked to the front door. Knocking, he wondered whether she would answer, or her parents, and wasn't quite sure which was better... Or worse.

When Quinn's father showed up at the door, Kye felt the eyes watching him with a small smile. He knew Quinn's father and Quinn's father knew him, slightly less well. "Hi, Mr. Berlin, I'm taking Quinn to the luau," Kye explains with a smile as he stands there easily. He knew he probably looked ridiculous with the face paint, but didn't really know what he could do what with the issues of taking it off.

...

As Quinn was finishing up, she heard her father let Kye in and they exchanged greetings. Her father seemed to like Kye, but didn't show it well enough. Better save Kye from the impending doom that is my dad. She headed down the stairs and as soon as she came into view, her father stopped talking and just kind of sat down. "Hey, Ma-...Quinn." That's right, her father still wasn't happy about people calling her Quinn, but that's the way the world turns. She hugged her father, and nodded in response to Kye's question.

"Thanks again for the ride, Kye. I really didn't want to be stuck with Nate."

"Of course, not a problem," Kye responds with the ever present smile as he gives her father a nod of goodbye. Kye waves back to the house at Quinn's parents as he walks down the driveway with her. He grabs the bag of work clothes from the passenger seat and tosses it in the back to clear a way for Quinn. Once she was seated, he quickly jumped into the driver's seat and started the car. Kye pulled out carefully and drove down the road, looking at a Quinn every few seconds. "So, psyched about the luau tonight?" Kye asks with a smile as he looks at the red light easily. People walked by that he recognized, so he waved to them.

As they were going to the luau, Kye attempted to make small talk by asking about the luau. "I'm honestly a little scared by it, but I'm also hyped about it. The last party I went to was two years ago. I'm awful, aren't I?" She chuckled at herself. She knew Kye would be excited for it, considering the paint on his face.

"Hey, Kye? You seem really tired lately. Are you alright?" Today, for once, Kye seemed okay. But there have been a couple of times when Kye has crashed at her house from whatever he does that keeps him out late. Her home tends to be the closest to the city part of Maui. "It's okay if you don't want to answer me, I understand it's your personal life." Plus, I'm not the easiest person to talk to.

...

Kye was chuckling at Quinn's claim while he listened to her question. His shoulders tensed slightly though he shrugged, not letting the stress stay. "I'm just beat from all the finals and stuff. Now that schools out I'll be able to get a bit more relief. I'm actually working towards a certain job right now," He says with a hopeful smile. He wanted to quit his old one and get one teaching surfing somewhere, but none of the places paid more than the restaurant and tips, which allowed just barely enough money. He didn't want to tell Quinn the whole truth, that work was getting longer and worse with the haole and that he was wishing his mom would and would not come back, but he didn't want to lie, so telling a truth wasn't lying, just not all the truth.

As the two pulled up, Kye smiled over at Quinn as he jumped out and headed to the other side of the car to open her door before going to get the stuff out of the back of the jeep.

Music went on in the building and Kye could see the beach not too far away. "Hey, I'm just gonna drop this off inside. If you want to head down to the beach that's cool," Kye says motioning with a hand to the fire the others had built. Kye went inside, arms full and headed to the bar. He smiled at the familiar faces, giving them a bright hello as he passed them the stuff. On his way out however, he was pushed into someone and slipped. Looking up, he saw a haole he didn't recognize. The guy wore a blue shirt and khakis and seemed to tower over Kye. "Sorry man, didn't see you there," Kye says as he stands with the help of a friend who pats him on the back before disappearing in the crowd. "Enjoy the party as much as you can," Kye says as he gives a slight wave and heads towards the beach.

As he approaches, he smiles at the people, giving a wave to them and greeting them all in general. "Aloha," he declares with a smile and wide arms.

...

Kye was such a sweetheart. He opened up the door for Quinn before she could even get out of her seat belt. Seeing as he was busy, Quinn entered the party with a cautious feeling emanating from her. Kye passed her with a whole bunch of stuff for the party. He told her to head down to the beach if she would like. She headed over to the fire, and it flickered in response to her presence. It seemed everyone was there, but spread out. She wasn't really sure what to do, so she just took a chair near the bonfire. Everything seemed fine, and she saw Kye coming over from across the way.

As Kye approaches the fire, he nods to the few non natives that were around, curious about their presence but not pushing it as he goes to take a seat by Quinn. He looked over at her and smiled as he moved to sit on the sand right next to her instead of the chair, not wanting to sit in the chair.

Quinn snickered a bit at him. "You're an odd one, Kye Kealoha." As soon as she looked over at him, however, she knew he wasn't handling the people's emotions around them very well. She made him get up. "Go over by yourself. When you're ready to come back, I'll be right here. Don't worry about me, okay?"

Kye Kealoha


Kye shakes his head as he looks down at Quinn. He was not a tall person compared to a lot of people, but was just tall enough to pass the girls. The emotions that were coming over him in waves were not as easily discerned from such a distance and his control was returning more and more.

"I'm doing okay Quinn, really. Just because I go away from them, I'll still feel them for a bit. My control is coming back and I'll be totally okay in just a few minutes. It's better if I just sit down and relax," Kye says rubbing the back of his neck. He really didn't want to go off by himself. "I just need to be calm," he says as avoids looking at Quinn. He felt uncomfortable all of a sudden being so close to her when there weren't a lot of people around, though he was thankful the others weren't there to see it and make fun of him.

Kye looks our at the water and then back at the party. The pounding was nearly gone and all he could feel was that of which was right in front of him, closing of the radius to all but Quinn and noticing her concern more than anything.

"Really Quinn, I know you'd be fine but I'm fine too. It's nearly all the way gone now and just made a bad headache. Would you like to go down to the water while we wait for the others?" Kye hoped it wouldn't seem cheesy, but he didn't want to sit here while the others talked with their haole friends. It would help and maybe even make Quinn feel more reassured about him being okay.

Why was it that he was always having difficulty with control when it easily not the hardest gift to control. Quinn had to control fire and Nate plants, why was it that his was the one that liked to act up all the time? Maybe the others' did too, but they controlled their obviousness.

Shaking his head inwardly at himself, Kye offers his hand to Quinn to take her to the beach, leaving his sandals behind as he goes towards the water, looking aloof as he walks slowly to give Quinn a chance to come with him.

Aliee Jung

It was as if all of her prayers had been answered. Kani of all people arrived to the bonfire next. She wasn't sure herself, but it sounded like a sigh of relief that left her lips. Finally someone she at least knows arrived. Well she knows Noa, but to even suggest they were close would be offensive. Aliee was completely fine with being on one side of the fire with the girl on the other. The way it should be. Aliee watched as Kani greeted his sister then worked his way to her. She smiled showing her great gratitude for the other's arrival. The first laugh of the night came from her as Kani greeted himself. She liked the slightly silly side of him. It matched perfectly with her own personality. "I'm fine." She whispered back to him during their brief hug. She wanted to talk more. It's been a while since they last spoke to each other.

She rose an eyebrow as if to ask if Kani was serious about his question. For all they knew, Keo was off with some random. Not that her track record was much better. Anyways, she turned to her friend and smiled. "Can we go somewhere and talk briefly?" There were two things she wanted to talk about. Dax and Jabari. Talking to Keo about relationships wasn't ideal nor was discussing a child he had no knowledge about. Oh! And the third thing would be to discuss what has been going on with Kani lately.

Kani could tell that Aliee was uncomfortable with Noa so close in her vacinity. He often wondered what it was that caused them to dislike one another. It wasn't his place to say anything but he did look out for both of them. His sister was family, and Aliee was family, in a sense. She was the mother of their three year old son, and yet Noa didn't even know that Aliee was Jabari's mother, and furthermore that she was Jabari's aunt. As far as she knew she was Jabari's niece. Nonetheless he looked at Aliee as she smiled at him. She had asked if they could go somewhere and talk briefly and he simply nodded.

"Be right back," he said to Noa before heading off in the far distance to talk to Aliee. He already knew what she was going to talk about, but he also had something he wanted to discuss with her. He wanted to discuss both Jabari and Noel with her. When they were a safe distance away, walking along the beach where the ocean hit the sand, he looked at her and sighed.

"You hanging in there?" he asked clearly worried about her. He hadn't seen her in a few days, probably more like a few weeks, but he thought of her often whenever he saw Jabari.

Aliee didn't hesitate to walk away with Kani. She needed a breather. Dramatic right? She didn't even say two words to Noa, but it was already enough of the girl for one night. She had a feeling he wanted to talk as well. One could say they had the type of friendship where they didn't see each other everyday, but they still maintained their friendship. That's just the way it was. Once they were a good distance away from the bitc-Noa, Aliee downed the rest of her drink to make it through the conversation pertaining to her child. "Define hanging in there?" A small joke to lighten the mood, or at least she thought it had. "Well first, I went to see Jabari last week. I wanted to see him again, but I was afraid it would look weird I keep showing up to only see one child." She paused for a moment finding the topic a little difficult to talk about.

"Kani, he doesn't even really know who I am. How is that...no, I know how it's possible but still." Now she felt the need for another drink. Shaking the thought away she directed her attention back to the topic at hand. "I want to tell him to call me Mom. Do you think it would be too weird though if someone heard him call me that? I mean eventually he's going to have to know who I really am. I don't want to be the 'lady who babysits on occasion'. I want him to call me his mother." It wasn't long before she began to ramble, but she could never talk about Jabari with anyone. If Kani wasn't around she would just have a bunch of thoughts floating around in her head, yet no one to talk to.

The ocean danced around their feet, partly because Kani willed it to do so, but also because of the rising tide. He listened to Aliee speak and while she spoke he could only agree with what she was saying. She had every right as Jabari's mother to feel this way, hell he even felt this way because instead of being called "da-da" or "daddy" he was pretending to be Jabari's nephew. It hurt that the decisions he made prior to had affected his life so greatly now. Jabari was his world, and he knew Jabari was Aliee's world as well. The baby had brought them so much joy and as they watched him grow up it became even more obvious that he was theirs. When it had come time to give Jabari to Kona, Kani had to leave in order to gather his thoughts. Now having to see Jabari in his grandfather's possession with Noa acting as caretaker and Aliee coming around as the "babysitter" it became increasingly painful to observe.

"I get it," Kani said, "I wish we could tell them all about Jabari. I often hold him and wonder what life would've been like if I just let it out that we had a kid, but then I think about the fact that he could be taken by the CPS and lost to us forever because of my stupid actions."

Kani got a little upset whenever he thought of it. Because of him, they had no choice in raising Jabari. Because of his violent streak when he was younger, and because of his record, he was unfit to raise a child, but what about Aliee? Unbeknown to him, her alcoholism would've surely gotten Jabari snatched away before he could even utter a single cry. It was all fucked up, but he planned on telling them one day, one day when it felt right.

"I'm going to tell them," he said softly looking up at Aliee. He exhaled and looked up at the sky, "I'm going to tell them and get Jabari back, but I need time to figure out how to do that. I'm also going to need your help."

He paused for a moment seeing how hurtful the conversation about Jabari was becoming. It was hurtful to see your child nearly every day and not being able to say "hey son" or have them call you by what you really are to them. The thought of his son never calling him "daddy" was heart wrenching and he could only imagine how hurt Aliee was. Still, he had to change the subject, he knew if he kept it on Jabari Aliee would be in tears sooner or later.

"But I know there's something else on your mind, what is it?"

Aliee couldn't even enjoy one of her favorite things, which was feeling cool ocean water run across her feet. No, that didn't matter to her right now. She could tell Kani blamed himself for what was currently happening to both of them, but if he knew about her drinking, then he'd know he's not the only one who contributed to the lost of Jabari for now. Unlike him though, Aliee wasn't exactly eager to tell her friends, namely Keo, about Jabari. Absolutely not. "Instead of telling everyone about him, I wish I could at least let him know who I am." Words couldn't describe how painful it was to deal with the fact your child doesn't even know you exist, even though you see them every week. Sighing, Aliee kicked at the water running between her toes. She could feel her emotions rising as they continued to talk.

"We need a lot more time to figure out how to get Jabari back." There were two major problems. One being Kani's probation and the second Aliee's drinking. If CPS knew about Aliee, then Jabari would never be in her care. Not at least until she can sober up. Who knows when that will be though. "But, if you really want to then I will help you." At the end of the day they were still great friends, so she was going to do her best. A temporary silence fell upon the duo, and she was happy to see him move onto a less frustrating topic. A small smile tugged at the corners of her lips at the thought of the new topic. It was stressful but no where near the level of stress dealing with a child.

"You know me so well. Am I that easy to read?" Aliee joked. "Well the next topic is Dax. I feel like he likes me and I know I like him, but there is like this invisible wall up between us. I have known him a really long time now, but for some reason I can't express my feelings to him. Ugh! This is why I don't date. It's too complicated." Aliee puffed out her cheeks in thought before continuing where she left off. "Should I just be bold and tell him? Or wait for him to say something first?" Aliee always preached to Keo about a steady relationship but she's never had one herself.

Kani was happy to know that Aliee had his back when it came to Jabari and for that he was grateful and thankful. Now the conversation shifted to something more romantic. He listened as Aliee spoke of her attraction to Dax, one of the members of their group. Dax was an okay guy. For all Kani knew the guy chould shift into animals or some crazy shit like that. He was cool with Dax and hung out with him a few times, but that's what guys normally did. To say they were close was an understatement, at most he could call Dax a friend, one of those friends that you talk to, and hang on occasion, but never really had any deep connection or deep conversations with. It was kind of odd that most of the group were his family members, but he was sure Dax and Aliee would make a great couple, the only thing was that they were both too afraid to admit their feelings to one another.

"I'm sure Dax feels the same way you feel about him. How much do you two hang out? Do you two talk to each other at all? Don't wait too long Aliee, life is about taking chances, making mistakes and learning from them. Don't be holed up in your mind waiting for him to make a move. You're strong, your awesome so just go for it," Kani replied, giving rather interesting advice. It seemed that he was better at giving advice than taking it. His own issues were ever so prominent. He hardly dated, but when he did he went straight for it. The last relationship he was in lasted a long time, but apparently being trustworthy was beyond them. The relationship ended with violence as most everything pertaining to him did. Now he had a chance at something new, something fresh, and he was scared to death. He didn't want to mess it up. This foreigner had just met him and he could already feel the mutual connection. Noel had already confirmed the mutual link, but what would this mean? The guy was only here for a short while, there was no sense in getting emotionally connected was there? All these thoughts were running through his head. Should he go for it? Shoudl he leave it alone? Should he be happy, or should he just deal with it?

He looked at Aliee and smiled.

"Besides, if you don't, I'm sure plenty of other girls will fall head over heels for Dax," he exaggerated.


Sure Kani may not know a lot about Dax, but he knew enough for her to ask him for advice. Who did she really have to ask such a question? Not Keo. Not Quinn. Never Noa. Never ever Noa. Kye was too young and dealing with his own romance. She really needed some more friends. Good friends. "I hope he feels the same way about me. Otherwise I would look extremely stupid right now. Let's see, we are around each other a lot. Our moms work together so it's inevitable. Like I said we are good friends so we talk more than most." She tried to answer the rapid fire questions, but it was a little overwhelming to think about it all. On the other hand she could hug Kani right now. He was right. She shouldn't wait! She should just march right up to him and...who was she kidding? Never in hell was she going to be that bold. Nope, not her. Then again she didn't want to waste Kani's advice/pep talk. So many choices. Give up on a relationship and stay friends, or risk your long time friendship. Surely she will make up her mind, but it won't be tonight. Give it a day or two.

"You were doing good with the advice until the last part." Aliee referenced the mentioning of other girls. Enough about her already, she wanted to know more about him. "What about you? Anyone you like or holds your interest?" It may seem weird to most, as to why two people who share a child have no romantic interest in each other. The answer was rather simple. Aliee didn't like Kani like that and he didn't like her like that. It was just a drunken night nothing more. "You know I have to meet the person you plan on dating. Can't just have anyone around my child." Aliee grinned happily. She swung her arm out and wrapped it around Kani's shoulder. "So do tell. Who do you like right now? Who is the lucky person who is just oh so deserving of your love and affection?" She pinched his cheek in a motherly way.

He once again fell silent as he listened to Aliee as she spoke about Dax. In other words Aliee and Dax were quote unquote good friends and apparently neither had the tendency to tell the other how they truly felt abaout each other, well at least Aliee didn't. Perhaps he should talk to Dax, see how he felt about Aliee. That way if he felt the same way he could tell her and she could move things further. Was it really his place to interefere in such a way? Was he really authoried to do such a thing? It was for a good purpose, he wanted to see Aliee happy, and if Dax made her happy then he'd do whatever he could to see if the feelings were mutual. He wouldn't tell her of course, as she would probably disapprove of his actions and tell him not to do it.

"Ya know what, I'm sure he likes you Aliee, I mean what's not to like?" Kani replied as he laughed at Aliee's comment about him giving good advice until speaking of other girls. It was true though. If another girl came by and caught Dax's attention, it would be Aliee's fault that she didn't make a move when she had Dax's attention. It wasn't like Dax was an ugly person. He was actually pretty handsome. He was about to say something when Aliee started asking him about things that were on his mind. Was he that transparent? He sighed and looked out at the ocean, stopping momentarily.

"I, umm, well I met a guy today actually," Kani began as he felt his face heat up a bit, "His name is Noel, he's Puerto Rican I believe, and I brought him to the luau with me. I feel like there's something there, and I can tell he wants to explore more to see what happens, but I don't know. I don't wanna invest in something that will end soon. When I think about it dating a Haole is probably a bad idea right?"

Aliee pursed her lips as she listened to Kani carefully. He gave her some good advice so she should give him some as well. "Thank you, though." Nothing wrong with a little self-esteem boost. Now back to the task at hand. She almost burst with excitement as Kani mentioned meeting a guy today or more specifically tonight. A Cheshire Cat grin tugged at her lips as he continued talking. "Noel you say? If you like him at first glance then that is saying a lot." Aliee gave her friend's shoulder a small squeeze before continuing. "I think you should explore it. Who knows, it could end in a month or ten years. I don't want to hear you complain about 'what if I talked to him more' or 'I should have asked him out'. Nope, I just want to hear 'I gave it my all and now we are still together'. Things can only end badly if you let them Kani." It was a typical Aliee lecture to say the least. "And if Noel hurts you, then I'm here to help you back on your feet. That's what friends are for." She finished it off with a small smirk.

"Now, let's get back to the bonfire. People might think we are plotting against the Haole over here." It was close to a known fact Aliee had no adoration towards mainlanders. None. But for Kani she would make an exception. No one else though. "Come on darling the fire is calling us. It's cold over here." Aliee tugged on her friend's arm back in the direction of the bonfire.

#, as written by Vix
{In collaboration with Winds of Fate, featuring Hiwalani-Noa, Kaniele, and Grayson}


Aliee, or "Myrtle" (as Noa often, teasingly called her) was the first to meander over and Noa didn't bother too much to say anything. The other woman didn't need to speak for Noa to know that Keo was the only reason she was anywhere near Noa. The two didn't associate in public or otherwise unless they had no choice. She was a bit relieved when Kani had come along, smiling and returning the hug. It didn't last too long before me moved on to Aliee, who quickly whisked Kaniele away for a "private chat". Noa bristled, a frown forming against her lips, something most people never saw. She hated that Aliee seemed to simply fucking adore everyone in the Kealoha family - the males in particular - but hated Noa's guts. For. No. Reason. Noa pinned it to jealousy but hardly cared enough to approach the haole for talking to. Yes. Haole. Unbeknownst to the others, as Noa doesn't really ever talk about Aliee, the young woman felt in her soul that she would never accept Aliee as a haole. As far as she was concerned, lineage mattered. The tanned blue blood watched Aliee prance (okay, walk) off with Kani in tow and immediately turned to head back towards the party to check for Gray's arrival. She was already beginning to regret agreeing with Keo to meet with the others. Sipping from her bottle, she looked around. Quinn was there with Kye. There was a knot of disgust that formed in her gut. What the hell was with her generation of male Kealohas and their fascination with haole. Obviously, Hiwalani-Noa herself dabbled with them. But at least none of them claimed to be maoli. She obviously didn't really think that Kye and Quinn had a thing. She just didn't like Quinn and Aliee. Nate was an exception because he obviously did like her. Plus, he was actually fun

Rolling her eyes again, she shimmied off into the crowd. There were whispers of a Hilton on the dance floor. Grayson. She couldn't stop the smile that replaced her frown as she headed to find him. It hardly took more than just a glance to shoo away the females gyrating against him, Noa taking their place. He was no D-Trix but he did manage to not look like a stork on ice. Laughs, smiles, and a few passing gropes were exchanged before they shared a slow dance. It didn't take long for that to end and Noa pulled Gray outside to a table, the two passing the bottle of whiskey back and forth. 

Kani walked back to the bonfire with Aliee, smiling and laughing as they shared jokes along the edge of the beach.  He began to sing softly, his voice rather melodic, much better than that of his sisters, at least he'd like to think so.  He laughed mentally at the thought of Noa throwing a fit if he were picked best singer over her.  She'd practically spew flames and shoot venom from her ears at the thought of her brother besting her at something she enjoyed.  Smiling, he saw in the distance Noa retreat to the luau and sighed.  He kind of knew why she was there, after all it wasn't a big secret who had found an interest in her.  Everyone seemed to want to come to him and tell him about her actions and he had had enough of it.  He disliked Gray with a passion, and the only legitimate reason he disliked Gray was because he'd seen guys like him before.  They come, prey on the innocent hearts of beautiful natives and then leave them heartbroken.  Not to mention the guy was a Haole.  Kaniele could've growled if he was an animal at the thought of his sister locking lips with the guy.  He balled his hand into a fist with the thought but realized he was still with Aliee and unclenched his hand.

"Excuse me a moment Aliee, I gotta go check on Noel," Kani stated as he too proceeded to head back towards the party.  In reality he was going to both check on Noel and spy on Noa.  He just had a feeling she had invited him, they had been spending a lot of time with each other lately, and there would be no such connection as long as he lived and breathed.

He slipped into the luau unnoticed and instantly spotted Gray.  He watched from a distance as Gray and Noa danced.  He was touching his sister, his baby sister and it took every ounce of Kani's will not to go punch the guy square in the nose.  How could his father allow such frivolous interaction?  At that moment, Noel having spotted Kani walked over to him.

"You okay?" he asked clearly seeing the scowl on Kani's face.

"Yea I'll be fine, you enjoying yourself?"

"So far so good, your dad is an awesome teacher, I learned a few words," Noel replied with a smile, "but it's getting late for me and as much as I'd love to stay here and chat I really should get to bed."

"Awww come on, you can stay a few more hours," Kani pleaded, "just to dance and drink a bit."

"That's the thing," Noel stated, "I think I'm drunk."

For someone who was drunk, Noel surely carried himself well.  He wasn't swaying or slurring his words, but from the look of his eyes, Kani had a feeling the guy was buzzed.

"Tell you what, give me at least thirty minutes to an hour.  I'll drive you home okay?"

"On one condition," Noel replied.

"What's that?" Kani asked, Noel getting extremely close to him as he leaned forward and whispered into his ear.

"You have to spend the night," Noel whispered, and as he pulled away from Kani he kissed the male again for the third time this day.  Saying it was like fireworks would be a lie, it was more like a TNT explosion.  When the kiss ended, Kani smiled.  "Sure, as long as you're sure that's what you want."

Noel placed a finger on Kani's lips before winking and rejoining the fray of swaying bodies.  Kani smirked as Noel left and then resumed his search for Noa.  It didn't take him long to find her exchanging drinks with Gray.  He walked over to the table and interrupted their little pow wow by slamming his fist into the table causing a rather loud bang that caused some of those closes to the table to stop dancing and stare.

"SO, NOA, WHAT'S GOOD?" he said his voice slightly raised and laced with irritation.

Noa had moved her chair from adjacent to Gray to right next to him, laughing as he told her a few jokes and the two exchanged embarrassing stories from world travels. “So, I really wanted to see it but it was closed for a week. After the show I snuck out of the hotel and slipped through the gates. Guards busted me trying to get out of a different gate. My head got stuck and they had to call an ambulance and the fire department.” She giggled into the bottle as Gray sputtered out laughter until Kani arrived. The bang startled them both but only caused further laughter. “Life. Life is good. This whiskey is good. Gray's body is amazing.” She teased her brother's patience and tolerance with little care or worry, passing the alcohol to Gray and resting her hand on his. “How was your chitchat with Little Mrs. I'm Better Than Everyone?” This caused the two to snicker a little, Noa almost sneering as she spoke of Aliee.

Noa was really testing his patience with her actions and he knew she was doing it to get under his skin.  It was working all too well, and the laughter only added to the  fire.  They were drinking straight whiskey, and while he had had a few drinks, he was sure they were inebriated.  Kani looked around and watched as everyone continued to dance and chat with one another.  Without warning, Kani snatched the whiskey bottle and smashed it on the table before glaring at Noa.

"What the hell is he doing here Noa?  Do you really wanna do this?" He said letting her know he wasn't going to back down and if Gray got involved he'd pop the guy in the mouth a few times.

"You're being irresponsible and you're acting like a little..........." he stopped talking and glared at Gray before his hand tapped  rhythmically against the table.  "Noa I need to speak to you.........ALONE!"

“I'll be back, sweets. Go ask my dad for another whiskey.” Kani breaking the bottle hadn't phased her but she could see that it put Gray on edge. Hiwalani-Noa was used to her brother's tantrums over her flirting. As Gray placed a kiss on her hand and left, she motioned her brother to take a seat. “So. Instead of making a scene, how about you put your big boy shorts on and act like an adult. It's times like these that make it hard to believe that you're the older one.” She was nonchalant, examining her nails as though she had found the most fascinating thing in the world beneath them. “And Gray's here because I've been too busy to ask Nate and I don't really want yours, Keo's, Kamehameha's, or Kahiau's sloppy seconds. We've been over this. I'm twenty. Who I spend my time with isn't your business. Daddy and Gramps doesn't mind. Neither does mom.”

"Why would you invite him when most of your family don't even like him?" Kani replied, "but you know what, you're a big girl, have fun, do whatever the hell you want, just don't come calling me when it happens," Kani stated as he smirked and shook his head, "and by the looks of it I'm sure it will happen again."

“And by "most of the family", you mean you and Keo,” she retorted, unsure of what he meant by "when it happens". What the hell was "it"?

Kani was irritated, but he was here to have fun and at this point he would rather simply walk away and let his father or grandfather deal with this.  He was tired of having to play the roll and if Noa could get herself into the situation, she'd better hope like hell she could get out of it.  He straightened his posture from his previous position and raised an eyebrow to show Noa that he didn't care what she did from this point on.  Turning, he left her alone, waiting for Gray or whoever else she wanted to bring.  Where the hell was Keo when you needed him?  Kani made his way to the bar, noticing Noel having the time of his life dancing with a fellow female native.

"Give me the strongest thing you have," Kani stated to his father who gave him a shot of Everclear, which was 75.5% alcohol.  He downed the shot in seconds before making a ugly face and placing the cup down on the bar, "Something less octanish this time pops," Kani stated with a smirk as his dad fixed him something fruity just to get on his nerves.  Kani took it and shook his head as he decided it best to just have fun at the party.

Gray had come back with a fresh bottle just as Kani left, doing his best to avoid bumping him with his shoulder. “Don't worry about it - The Keo in Kani was just coming out. The whole hypocritical overprotective act. Let's just enjoy the party. I'll even grant you a wish for even showing up.” She and Gray laughed it off and resumed their chat. There was a distant clap of thunder as her irritation surfaced, Noa quickly reeling it in as she took a shot. She was almost thinking that Keo had found someone to fuck and decided not to show up. Not that she was complaining, obviously. Out of the side of her eye, she could see a couple of college kids, haole, getting rowdy with each other. Their lack of having a native in their group made it obvious that they weren't invited. Her nose crinkled and she sighed, shaking her head.

Kye Kealoha

Kye smiled at Quinn's back stupidly for a moment before hearing someone shouting. "Oh no..." Kye mutters as he jogs towards it. A group was getting closer and closer and he saw more and more of his relatives in the fray. "Quinn, get out of here," Kye says as he goes up to her before getting tackled from behind.

He rolled with the haole for a few seconds before the haole got on top of him. The guy was drunk, but obviously older and stronger than Kye. The two were closer to the larger group now than Quinn and Kye yelled at her yet again, "Get going Quinn." Kye just hoped that she would go since he couldn't find her out of all the other intense emotions around him.

"Hey man, come on," Kye manages as he grapples with the guy. Kye manages to push him off as he tries to avoid a broken bottle aimed at his head. Kye backed up, his hands up, not really wanting to throw a punch until he saw Noa taking them. If she was punching people and getting punched back, he probably should too.

Kye stopped backing up but was unfortunate enough to be grabbed from behind by two of the guy's friends. Kye struggled before ducking a punch from the original guy. "Oh come on guys," Kye says as he was pulled back up until he was punched in the stomach, keeling over, out of breath.

"Okay, fine," Kye mutters as he gives the guys behind him all his weight and kicks up with his right leg, nailing his main attacker in the stomach, sending the guys behind him reeling.

Kye ducked as someone swung his fist over Kye's head. Kye swung as the other guy came at him. Soon enough he found himself in the middle of the group of haole that he really didn't want to be with. He stuck out like a sore thumb with his glow in the dark hawaiin face paint design.

Kye groaned inwardly at the obviousness of the trouble he and his relatives were in. They couldn't just use their abilities against these guys, and girls, but they couldn't just get beaten to a pulp.

Kye avoided hitting a girl, but was kicked by another and had someone else punch him. He really didn't want to hit a girl. Not because he was trying to be polite, well there was that, but also that he didn't want to hurt anyone really. Then again, they were hurting his family and it really did piss him off.

Kye called out Noa, "I'm going to jail, going to jail at seventeen," Kye called, somewhat frantic in his youthful worries. His dad wouldn't care though if someone heard that he, the son of his mother, had been arrested... well, that would be really really bad.

Someone swung what must have been a beer bottle at Kye and he felt it his his cheekbone hard. It hurt and he was stunned for a moment before he was able to restrain the guy who hit him, pushing him to someone else's feet and moving to dodge another attack. It was getting out of hand.

If the cops showed up, he wouldn't resist arrest, but he sure as hell wouldn't be entirely conscious at this rate either. He bet he'd wake up the next morning in a cell if things went the way he believed they would.

As the shouting carried though the wind to Kye and Quinn, Kye automatically tensed. Quinn wasn't really sure what was going on and before she knew it, he was gone. He told her to leave, but he was her responsibility. She could just make out Kye getting into a brawl and was about to go help out until Aliee arrived. Quinn was still dumbfounded about the situation occurring around her. What was she supposed to do? Could she really just stand by and let things happen? She glanced at Keo as his voice raised with the help of his ability. Unfortunately for Quinn, the closest fire was the bonfire, and she really didn't want to make a scene out of her power, even if the witnesses were drunk. She didn't have time for that. Aliee was also waiting for her to respond. "Yeah, let's go. We can come back once everything has settled." Her accent was thicker with the frustration and fear she felt. Bad habits don't seem to die, do they?

Aliee pulled her to a safer location and they met another person there who was hiding away from the police. Aliee introduced herself, and Quinn followed suit. "I'm Quinn, a not so close friend of Kani and Aliee here." Her mind was torn in different directions. Clearly, this wasn't something she was used to, even though she's been in heated arguments before. But an actual fist fight? That would be too much for her. Speaking of too much, Quinn had a thought. Where was Nate? She thought he came along with Keo and Mona, but she couldn't be sure. She just hoped he would be alright. His plants would protect him if he were in any real danger.

Reaching into her pocket and sighing with a bit of relief, Quinn stepped back a bit. She didn't smoke too often, but she did have some cigarettes with her for party purposes. She always forgot about that damn lighter, though. Can't be freaking out the new comer now, can we? Pulling out the ancient lighter from England, she breathed in the relaxing but hazardous smoke. The breeze was coming against her, so it shouldn't have bothered Aliee too much. "What do we do now? I don't know if it's a good idea to stay put for much longer. We don't need the cops on top of us." It wouldn't be that hard to transverse down the beach. Quinn knew it like the back of her hand. "Our best bet is going along the beach. Cops will be busy looking for people up there." Quinn motioned towards Mano's Place. Uniforms were already swarming the restaurant. People were getting dragged out of that place. This was a prime example of why Quinn didn't want to drink, ever. Taking another drag, Quinn waited for Aliee to answer her proposition.

#, as written by Vix
Nate was grinning as he enjoyed laughing and flirting with Keo, though he made sure to still keep Mona involved. Truth be told, Nate was still curious and part of him still wanted to sleep with Keo. However, there was that issue with Noa. She was the first of the group to fully accept him and his sister and she bailed him out of jail. He knew all too well how she felt about her friends sleeping with her cousin. He could argue that he had met Keo before he met her but he knew that wouldn't stand with her. Besides, he liked her too and wouldn't mind getting a bit closer. It was a problem, these relationships. It seemed that one way or another, he was losing.

He didn't know which of them he wanted more and there was the risk that he'd lose one if he chose the other. He knew Keo. Keo wanted casual sex. That was fine because Nate was still just curious. And he knew Noa. She was more of a long term relationship girl. It was a hard choice to make and he didn't want to hurt or anger anyone, especially since he didn't feel completely accepted as a maoli yet. And he didn't want to be the one to further damage the Kealoha kids' relationship that was already on the rocks. At this point in time, he was fine with just being neutral ground.

He was torn from his thoughts by Keo mentioning Noa and immediately his flirting shut down, giving an involuntary cough. He turned his head and expected to see Noa march up to them but was sadly mistaken when he instead saw her on the arm of Grayson Hilton. Her attention turned from he and Keo and Mona, back to her date as a smile took over her face and she sat in his lap, squirming into his shirt. The Brit's jaw clenched as he watched. Jealous? Maybe a little. But Noa was his closest friend and he trusted Gray about as much as Kani and Keo did. If he so much as made her cry, Nate would kill him by strangling him to death with his own bare hands. Still, he couldn't help but to pout a bit watching her.

The scene grew uglier by the second as she approached some college kids obviously on summer break that were uninvited and getting out of hand, pushing around one of the smaller locals. Her saving him had come with the cost and she was soon attacked. Like the Kealohas, it was reflex to jump in and start cracking heads. It was something that you learned really quick in Lahaina - Maoli took care of their own. No matter how much they might fight with each other they would always stand up for each other.

When Nate first asked Noa why she bailed him out, she told him “No kekahi o kākou ka pilikia malaila pu kākou a pau. It's the Kealoha family creed. It means "Should one of us get in trouble we will all go that way". We will always stand for the people we care about. Whether Keo and Aliee like it or not, you and Quinn are one of us now. You're maoli.”

Nate was vicious in the fight as he always was. He had dropped his chairs with little warning and threw himself in, hitting anyone that he didn't immediately recognize. He could see nearly all of the Kealohas there, just the ones without a bedtime, all of them fighting tooth and nail. Even Lilo seemed to have decided to stay for the summer. Nate ended up headbutting someone to keep them off of her, offering a grin. He didn't know her personally but Noa talked a lot about their older sister.

However, bright lights of red and blue were flashing and he could hear Noa screaming for Grayson to get Kye off the scene. As he looked up, he could see the haole practically carrying the smaller Kye away from the fray with Kani and Noa's siblings seeming to move in a way that would prevent the police from seeing them flee. Before he knew it, Nate's hands were being cuffed behind his back and he was being escorted to one of the eight cop cars there. A glance to the side showed Keo and all the other Kealohas being escorted more like royalty than anything. He knew their family was important in Lahaina, but really? He'd been to small towns where everybody knew everybody and he'd never seen cops treat even their own children this way. He was going to ask about that later.

A turn of his head and he could see Dax waving apologetically. He hadn't even tried to fight with them! Nate made as if to lunge for him even though he was a good fifty feet away, only to be roughly shoved back into the police car, squished against some drunken sorority brat. He hoped Quinn was okay but he knew for sure that he was getting kicked out after this. He growled under his breath and placed his head against the window, watching faces pass by as the caravan of law enforcement officers drove through the streets on their way downtown. People watched while checking their phones, news of the fight spreading quickly. He could only hope Kye was lucky enough to not be caught on camera. Grayson could suck it. Figuratively, of course.




Noa sighed in the backseat with Lilo, her older sister's arms wrapped around her. Both of them were pretty beat up. Cuts, bruises, busted lips. No doubt they'd have a black eye or two later. Noa pressed her fingers to her lips and sharply inhaled. Someone had ripped out her piercing. Her hand went to her navel to find that one had been ripped out as well, blood leaking from her flesh. Luckily her strange blood with a light blue shimmer blended in with her paint. The young woman closed her eyes and curled her hands into a fist as the car came to a halt and she was escorted inside where she was lined up to get her mugshot taken. The bright flash of the bulb caused her to wince, a groan coming from her as she was escorted to a cell.

There wasn't much trouble in Lahaina except during tourist seasons so they didn't really have a fancy jail but Noa and Lilo were shown to a cleaner cell, sitting down to find that their cot was quite plush. When Lilo was called out to make their one phone call the deputy had already dialed their father for her. She returned with a light grimace. “Dad has too much to handle to come and get us now. Mommy is at home with the little ones. They're sleeping.” Noa whined, slumping a little. No doubt their grandfather was fast asleep too. Jabari had been pretty active today. But Lilo continued. “But dad gave someone some money to come get us out.”

Noa looked up again with a lifted brow. “We can't get on good faith. Normally, upstanding citizens of the law, especially locals, can get out on good faith. But with Kalani's election coming up and this fight being so huge. You know the haole are going to make a huge deal and if it looks like there's any nepotism it won't go well. The press is all over her. So. We have to pay... And Aliee is coming with the money. And Quinn...” As if her night couldn't get any worse! Noa whined again and prayed that those two wet blankets wouldn't pull a bitch move. She figured they'd let her sit there for a while.

Kye Kealoha

ImageKye was standing for a few more seconds, holding on to be okay and being totally fine for a second before his vision blurred.

Seconds later he felt himself get picked up as if he was nothing, getting carried away by the haole that Noa had been with earlier. He knew that they were trying to get him out of there and was thankful. If his mom heard about the fight, he'd be grounded for a month and wouldn't be allowed outside... That would really suck.

He saw that Keo was there, had actually shoved off one of Kye's attackers too. Then he remembered the haole carrying him. Why was he carrying him? He could probably walk straight, most likely. He felt everyone's excitement, fear, concern, and anger as he was pulled along and felt his chest tighten. He found it more and more difficult to breath, or maybe it was just that he was so woozy from the brawl...

When they were far enough away from the fight, Kye looked at Grayson, his voice quiet. "I can walk man... Just put me down..." Kye managed, not liking that he was so easily carriable. Was that a word? He didn't really care did he?

Kye wanted to check on his cousins, his friends... but he didn't know where they were. He wondered how many got arrested and whether someone was gonna go bail them out. Would they wait until morning? He probably would have gone to get them right away, but he couldn't really go get them out since he didn't have any money on him.

Kye looked back to see everyone being led to cop cars. A lot of his relatives were being led as well as Nate. "Shit... How are they gonna get bailed out anytime soon?" Kye says, wondering if Quinn was among the crowd that had escaped, or if she was in a car already.

Kye sighed and sat down on the sand. "I... I think I should go home..." Kye says, tired and dizzy from the night. He was trying hard to stay in control of his consciousness though he couldn't tell how well he was doing.

Only then did Kye realize what just happened in full. He had just fought with tourists. If he was caught on camera... he was dead. Everyone would know and it would hurt his mom's campaign. He just hoped nobody caught him on camera, ans his family got out of jail the next day at the latest.

was hiding, hiding as Kani had instructed him to, but he heard someone approaching from behind and he quickly turned to see two females standing there. One started talking to him and he could only blink a few times before registering that she was saying she was a friend of Kani’s and that they should get out of the vicinity, unless they too wanted to spend time behind bars. Noel couldn’t agree more. He had come to Hawaii to have fun, not spend a night in jail. Before he could turn and go along with the girls, one of the brawlers, a female yelled out to get Kye out of the vicinity. Noel didn’t know who a Kye was, but he assumed it was the guy on the ground that looked like a native, and resembled Kani a bit. The girl who yelled resembled Kani as well and Noel quickly put two and two together. They were family. She was telling some guy to get Kye out of there and Noel was very much intrigued by all of this, as well as concerned. It would’ve made an awesome thesis for a research paper. “How to beat the hell out of tourists in less than ten minutes.” A catching title indeed, but one that would certainly get him an F.

For a moment Noel could only pray that Kani didn’t get himself killed along with his sister and relatives, but they seemed to be doing quite the number on the tourist, all of them except one. Kye. Kye was out cold after getting hit in the head with a beer bottle. Noel didn’t know him, didn’t even know his name, but he couldn’t just let the guy lay there on the ground unconscious like that. Kani was still punching guys left and right, kicking and putting frat guys in headlocks, but he wasn’t immune to the bruises that came from a brawl. He was sure to be sore in the morning. So far he had sustained a busted lip, a cut right under his eye and his head was bleeding from a bottle that was smashed over his head. He did manage to cause some serious injuries to the tourists though. One of the guys with a beer bottle in his hand, had come into the fray swinging. At first Kani didn't know if he was fighting for them or the frat guys because he was hitting mostly tourist, but when the guy smashed the beer bottle over Kani's head, it was over. Blood had trickled down and Kani punched the guy in the nose, probably breaking it, but he couldn't tell because he was swarmed by more frat guys soon after. All in all Some would have bruised ribs, some would have broken noses and the others would have bruises and black eyes. All were consequences for messing with one of the Keolohas. The lights started flashing, red and blue, it was the cops. This was bad; they needed to get out of there and quickly. Kani was looking around noticing the cops walking up, and he realized then that he had royally fucked up. Jabari was on his mind as the cop came and cuffed him. Noel could only look from Kani to Kye and he sighed. Kani was going to jail; there was no doubt about it. Quickly, before the cops could see, Noel followed behind Grayson as he carried the limp Kye out of sight of the cops. He was sure the two females who had introduced themselves as Quin and Aliee would be following close behind.

When they were a safe distance away, Noel watched as Kani was loaded into the back of a cop car, a look of concern written all over his face. Kani sat there cuffed in the back of a five o. He hated this part. They would drive him to the police station, along with his family, and they would book them until one of their family members came and got them. Kani was restless the entire trip. He was annoyed that he had actually let it happen. Jabari’s future was now at risk because he had to jump in a fight, a fight that his sister and a bunch of haole started. Shaking his head, he lowered it for a moment before throwing it back and sighing. This was one for the record.

“Sorry about that, I’m Noel,” Noel said apologetically as he looked at Aliee and Quinn, “we should probably go bail them out.” Still a little inebriated, Noel wasn’t the best at thinking of what to do at the moment, but he was sober enough to comprehend that what had happened was bad. He looked at Kye and Grayson, “Kye is it? You alright?”

Upon Kani’s arrival at the police station, they booked him in, but because he already had a record, his probation officer would be called and he would be in more trouble than the rest. They sat him in the cell with his brothers, and cousins, and friends. He was irritated, but he said nothing the entire time he was in the cell. He could hear talking, but he didn’t register anything his brothers were saying. They were all bragging about how many frats faces they messed up, but Kani was silent, very silent, so silent that his brothers stopped talking and looked at him.

“Kani, you alright bro?”

Kani didn’t respond. He sat there his head down, face emotionless. His brothers looked at each other in a concerned manner before touching Kani’s arm, but Kani was unresponsive.

There was no time for thinking, his body just moved mechanically. If the cops arrested him, his father would pull the plug on him and send him off and come here himself. He couldn't let that happen, it would ruin everything he was building up for. Let alone ruin the Hilton name. There was a lot at risk for him.

Upon hearing Noa shout for her to grab Kye, he searched over the mass of people fleeing every which way. Thankfully his height gave him the advantage. He was standing a distance off, wavering back and forth with a dreamy glaze over his eyes. Poor kid had it hard, he thought. In a few short strides he made it to his side. There was no way he was going to just tug along on him, it would take to long and they needed to get out of there, fast. So scooping him up, he carried him off the scene. "Stay with me Kye, things are going to be alright," I hope, he thought to himself.

A good distance away, Kye finally spoke asking Gray to put him down. Setting him down, he grabbed his shoulders as he swayed a bit trying to regain his balance. "You got scuffed up a bit, but you fought well," he managed a weak smile at the Native.

It was then that Gray noticed that some guy that had been with Kani had followed behind them. He nodded briefly to him before his attention returned to Kye who spoke again. At the mention bailing he immediately thought to Noa. Shit, who was going to bail her out... all of them out? Then the guy who had just introduced himself at Noel spoke. "Who's bailing out who? They can't stay in there." He looked to Kye then. He was family to the Kealoha's, he would probably know what was best to do in this situation. Gray certainly had the money to get them all out but he thought it best to allow Kye to have some input before they did anything else.

Kye wanted to go home and Gray could see some fear in his eyes. "Hey, don't worry, we'll figure this out. Why don't you take a seat and breathe a little to clam your nerves." Truthfully, Gray needed to take a seat himself and calm his frayed nerves. Trying to recollect his thoughts he looked about him at all the unfamiliar faces. Groaning, he wiped his brow of the sweat and blood and winced a little. The gash at his temple was probably going to need some sutures but that could be taken care of later. For now they had a bigger problem ahead of them.

Kye Kealoha

ImageKye was distracted and trying to figure out how he was going to get home when someone's words broke through his thought. “Kye is it? You alright?” Some guy, he just said his name was Noel right? He was hanging out with Kye's cousin Kani.

Kye considered his words. He was only bleeding on his arm and his lip. That was about it. He did however have bruises and maybe a concussion after getting hit in the head and literally tossed about like a rag doll for the past half hour. He could already feel his eye swelling and knew it would be a black eye. Why did he have to be so light? He was strong, but that didn't give him the size and muscles that would make him less difficult to pick up. He was so pathetic sometimes...

In response, Kye just shrugged. He had also just seen his family get arrested. That wasn't as bad as some might expect, he knew that once the bail money got there they'd be fine. They could handle themselves in jail in the meantime and this wasn't their first time. He didn't like it, but it was true, nobody was going to have a difficult time there, especially with his... feistier relatives... It was true, they did get rather feisty at times, and that was always entertaining to watch.

Kye smiled slightly and shook his head in wonder at the fact that he could smile at the moment. "Stay with me Kye, things are going to be alright," He heard Grayson say. He only knew the name because of Noa... Things would be alright once everything passed over in a few days and nobody knew any of this happened.

"You got scuffed up a bit, but you fought well," Grayson said. Kye rolled his eyes though Grayson couldn't see them since Kye was sitting with his head between his knees. He was nowhere near his relatives in their ability. He was probably just a burden to them even if he wanted to help. Why did he have to be so young?

Image"Who's bailing out who? They can't stay in there." He looked to Kye then. Kye shrugged, then looked up. "Quinn and Aliee probably have the money. They'll go get them as soon as possible. They'll be fine. It's not their first time they've been arrested, well some of them. Really, we can go get them now if we want to. We probably should... Even if they're going to be fine, the won't be happy with us if we wait too long," Kye says, tired as he stood.

Kye felt sympathy radiating from Gray and groaned inwardly. They guy thought he was just as pathetic as Kye though he was. "Hey, don't worry, we'll figure this out. Why don't you take a seat and breathe a little to clam your nerves," Grayson said. Kye shrugged.

"I'm fine. Just because I got beat up doesn't mean I'm gonna break down. I know they're just trying to help me out, but getting treated like the baby sucks," Kye says, bitter in a way though he didn't sound too bitter about it, he was good about that, "Even the haole do it... Well, the better ones that is." Kye looked at the few haole that had gotten away, they all fought against the Kealohas and their friends.

"Thanks, by the way. I know you guys didn't have to help us out, even though you are, well... I don't know what you are to my cousins, but thanks," Kye admits, confused momentarily about his family relations. He knew Grayson was with Noa and that Noel was with Kani, but still...

Kye looked up as Quinn and Aliee approached, hoping Quinn hadn't heard what he said about being the baby. That's all he needed to assist in his love life, which at the moment, seemed to be sucking rather majorly. "Tu Kai," Kye mutters under his breath, cursing again. He was surprised, he didn't usually curse a lot, but tonight was different... It was sucking... a lot.

There were several things swirling through his head. There was the possibility of going to prison. There was the possibility of never seeing his sisters or his brothers again. There was the possibility of never seeing Kye or Keo, or Aliee again and there was the possibility of never seeing Jabari again. These thoughts made him clam up, they made him completely silent, and it was unlike him to be so silent when his brothers were speaking to him. His twin brothers and his younger brothers all in a holding cell with him, along with Nate and some other guy. They had separated the haole from the natives, and if ever the police made a great decision, it was in doing that. Still, the thought of Noel lingered on Kani’s conscious. The male had actually come in to help his family and they hadn’t even known each other but for a day. Who puts their life at risk over someone they barely even know? Maybe Aliee was right, maybe he should try it out and see where it goes. Maybe he could be happy. This would also mean not scolding Noa over Gray for a while, but who was he kidding he was seriously going to break Grayson’s nose the moment he got a good enough reason to do so.

“Kani,” he heard his name for the first time since his brothers had started trying to get his attention. Kani finally looked up at Kami, Kahi, Keon (Kani's nickname for Hikialani Inoke Keon Kealoha), Keanu (Kani's nickname for Hanini Feleti Keanu Kealoha), and Kamea (Kani's nickname for Honi Ipo Kamea Kealoha). Kami and Kahi were his age, and they all looked alike. Kani always said he was more popular and better looking, but Kami and Kahi each shared the same facial features as Kani. Kani was born first out of the triplets; therefore he usually acted as the oldest amongst the three. His sister Lilo was the oldest of them all. Noa belonged to the quadruplet set with Keanu, Keon and Kamea as his younger siblings. Each of them looked nearly identical, but with easily defining differences, just as Kani shared with his set Kahi and Kami. Noa was very soft, feminine, but one could tell her relation to Hikialani, Hanini, and Honi. Kamea, Keon, and Keanu were all nicknames Kani had given his younger siblings, and also their middle names for the most part.

“I’m fine,” Kani said softly, “really I am.”

“Ay bro, what about your probation officer?” Keon asked more out of worry than to frighten Kani. Kani just looked at him and shrugged his shoulders. He didn’t know what to expect, what ruling the probation officer would slam onto his head, but whatever happened he would have to deal with it. The group of Kealoha’s silenced for a bit before they heard the holding cell doors open and in came a strange looking guy. He was shorter than Kani, looked like a frat guy, and dressed like a haole. He even smelled like one. From the looks of it the guy had been in the brawl with them. Kani’s mind went into a frenzy before he started laughing. This made his brothers look at him, concern plastered on their faces.

“Kani, what’s going on bro?” Keanu asked finally as Kani shook his head.

“That’s the guy that hit me with a beer bottle,” Kani stated still laughing.

“WHAT?” all of his brothers said in unison as they turned and looked at Jackson. For a moment, it looked as if all of them were going to jump on him, but when Kani spoke, they listened and backed down.

“Nah, he’s cool,” Kani said, “hey, you, what’s up man, I take it you’re new around here? I’m Kani, these are my bros. I gotta hand it to you; you pack a mean punch with a bottle.” Kani felt sorry for breaking the guy’s nose. He could tell by the blood that had trickled from the guy’s nostrils. “What’s your name?” He waited for Jackson to respond to his barrage of questions before he started speaking again.

“Look man I know how it is when you’re in the heat of the moment, but if ya wanna experience all of Hawaii, let me know, I got the hookup around here,” Kani said as his brothers laughed and shook their head.

“Really bro? So you’re mister Miyagi now?” Kame asked as the others laughed. They already knew that they would be getting bailed out soon. It was no surprise that their family protected them for the most part, yet allows them freedom to learn and experience what it’s like when rules and laws are broken.
=======
Noel looked from one person to the next as he tried to comprehend exactly what they were doing. Apparently they would be going to bail out the Kealoha’s, well for the most part, and this would give him the chance to see Kani again. He watched attentively as Aliee walked off towards Mano’s Place where Kani’s father had been the bartender during the graduation ceremony. Perhaps it was there that she obtained the money necessary to get his man out of jail. Noel smiled. While he did have the money to bail all of them out, he didn’t want to step on anyone’s shoes or overstep any boundaries in this new territory, so he stayed quiet, listening and observing. He did, however, have a big enough vehicle to fit nearly all of the arrested members of the Kealoha family. Thanks to his father, he had rented Noel a nice Cadillac Escalade to drive around in while he was staying in Hawaii. It was a last minute attempt to spoil his son, something Noel really appreciated. It was what he had driven to Mano’s place to meet Kani.

“If anyone wants to ride with me to pick them up, I’d appreciate the company. Besides, I’d get lost,” Noel stated as he pulled out the keys to the Cadillac and dangled them in front of him. He had sobered up a bit since everything had happened so quickly and now he was ready to go help where he was needed.

The walk to the Cadillac was a quick one, but as he unlocked the car, he noticed Aliee driving off in a scooter. The girl really was on a mission, but why did she leave them all behind so quickly? Why was she rushing off instead of riding with him considering the gang would need some sort of transportation when they all got out? Noel was sure Gray would have his own set of wheels as well. The engine to the Cadillac came to life as Noel turned the key in the ignition. Whoever was riding with him needed to be in place. It wasn’t long before he pulled off in the direction Aliee had gone. A few turns later and he found the police station. He drove up and parked the vehicle, getting out and walking into the area where Aliee was bailing them all out, at least that is what he thought.

“Everything good Aliee?” Noel asked as he approached her.

Kye Kealoha

Kye watches people leave. He was going to head home. He did however need to make sure that Quinn made her way home though she was probably going with Aliee.

"Hey Quinn, I'm heading home. I won't be able to help with picking up my cousins and your brother. My dad'll be furious if I don't get home soon. See you tomorrow maybe," Kye says softly, feeling bad he was leaving her. He wanted to stay with her, he didn't want to lie to her. He had to get home though. He couldn't help and if he was seen at the jail, he could get in a lot of trouble. "Aloha Quinn," Kye says with a wave as he walks away. He didn't follow anyone else as he walked back to his old jeep.

Climbing in, he closed his eyes, tired for some reason. Pulling out of the parking space, Kye drove towards his house, swerving slightly though thankfully only when he was almost home. He parked, struggling out of his car and up towards his house.

When he got inside, his father was in a fit. He didn't think his dad would really be mad, usually he was passed out at this point. "Dad, listen, I'll pick some more up tomorrow," Kye managed as he saw that his dad had what looked to be the last empty bottle in hand.

His dad, not one to be reasonable often, didn't want to hear it and was immediately charging Kye. Kye tried to run, but in his own loopy state, was tripped by his dad sending him sprawling on the stained carpet.

Kye tried to roll away but was stopped by his father. He didn't speak so much as just attack him. Kye knew that everyone else wouldn't wonder why he was so beat up the next day, after all, what's a brawl without the least experienced getting hurt?

"Don't go out late anymore. Ever. Am I clear?" Kye's father demands, pinning his son to the ground.

"Yes sir, please stop now," Kye responds, trying his best to breath under his fathers weight. He wouldn't hit him back, he couldn't. It would get worse and worse. Kye didn't help himself as his father got worse and worse. Closer to maybe three in the morning, the man passed out.

Kye coughed, hurting all over at this point. First he was drained from the fight and now this. He shook his head. This wasn't the night he had expected to have. He had hoped maybe he could talk to Quinn and say something that would be meaningful, then he had been to scared to do it. Then he had joined a fight that had gotten his relatives arrested. He should have gone to help them, but he couldn't do that either in his fear. He needed to get over this. His fear of everything. Even his father.

Rolling over onto his stomach, he pushed himself up, using the nearby chair to stand up. He staggered to his room and collapsed in bed. Hopefully he could pass out in bed and he wouldn't wake up entirely broken. He'd talk to everyone tomorrow, especially Keo to see if his cousin could help him with his problem. He needed to get stronger, to not be scared anymore...

Everything from this point on happened so fast. Quinn wanted to go after Kye, but didn't have the chance as he ran off home. She waved back at him, but it didn't seem like he saw her. Then, Aliee pushed her over to Mano's to get money for bail. It was a good thing, because Quinn surely couldn't ask her parents for money and she didn't have enough on her to bail someone out. She stayed silent and followed Aliee's every moved and gesture. Quinn was too worried about Kye and Nate to speak anyways. It didn't surprise her when Aliee took off towards her scooter. Quinn was right behind her, and took a seat behind the woman. It wasn't the first time that Quinn and Aliee rode together somewhere. Knowing her, Aliee probably didn't realize that she was there. In a few minutes, they were over at the station. Aliee was faster than her walking in, and Quinn just got in as Aliee sat down. Noel was there too.

"I'm guessing my brother is here as well. Tonight went horribly wrong." Quinn must have seemed oblivious to how Aliee was feeling, but Quinn didn't want to suddenly be buddy buddy with someone that just tolerated her. She thought about tonight in all. Kye was being...weirder than normal. The phrase she didn't recognize still rung in her ears. What could it mean...? Her phone vibrated. 'Shit...what's Dad still doing up?' It was just a text message, but he didn't seem too happy about anything.

Where the hell are you two? Nathaniel isn't answering me. He's not too drunk, is he? Quinn chuckled at her father's assumption. Still, this was very unusual. He's always asleep by 9. Quinn quickly thought of something to tell him.

We're helping the Kealohas clean up Mano's. Dunno when we'll be done. Nate's cleaning stuff up off the roof, so he probably isn't paying attention. :P Tell Mum not to worry. We can take care of ourselves. See you in the morning. It was a good thing that her father believed her over anyone else around here. Daddy's little girl, as they say. the officers were starting to haul people out, one of them being her brother. She simply stared blankly at him, hoping he wasn't hurt or anything. "Dad thinks you're drunk, you know." She joked as he came up to her. None of the Kealoha's had appeared yet. "Did you want to wait for the rest of them or just go home?" Quinn didn't really care either way, but she knew she wasn't going to let Nate out of her sight again for the rest of the night.

At Kye's thanks, Gray awkwardly gave him a shoulder pat. When Aliee thanked him, he gave her a nodded politely in her direction. At the mention of bailing out people, Gray instinctively knew she would not bail out Noa. From the history, that Noa kindly informed him of, the dislike that ran between them was deep. That left him up to the task. Not that he mind of course. The money for the bail was pocket change, plus he didn't want Noa steaming and plotting in there. After all, a jail cell was rather uncomfortable; that he knew of from past experience.

Seeing everyone disperse, Gray made his way to his car. Naturally Ferrari's were only two seaters, so he would only be able to bring Noa home, not that he wanted to bring anyone else along. Seated comfortably in his car he took some time to assess the damage. A cut lip, a probably some bruised ribs, and of course that lovely cut at his temple that was still trickling blood. Grabbing a kerchief from the dash, he dabbed at the cut and winced slightly. Well, not much else I can do about that... Shifting his car, he made his way to the police department. There he found the Escalade and the scooter that belonged to the patrons he just recently had been with. Parking his car, he straightened of his clothes to seem halfway decent, and got out.

Directed to the clerk, he saw Aliee and Noel there. He acknowledged them and continued smiling at the clerk, "Hi, I'm here to bail out Hiwalani-Noa Kealoha." The older woman stared blatantly at him before telling him to take a seat near the other for a moment while so did the paper work.

Not bothering to sit, he leaned up against the wall on the far side of the room, opposite of Noel and Aliee. Now he just had to wait and this hellish night would be over, he hoped.
