It had been a bit of a shock really, never in his wildest dreams had Erik imagined that he would be invited to a mansion. Not in his first week of school at least. Maybe his royal highness wasn't as bad as Erik had first expected. He did however notice that the girls had turned their heads in Ricardo's direction, and while Erik couldn't see their eyes he guessed that they might have influenced the decision a little bit. "Should have brought a toothbrush" He thought to himself as they pulled up at the enormous building. Not long after that Erik had collapsed on one of the softest beds he had ever had the pleasure of sleeping in. Unfortunately he couldn't figure out how the air-condition worked, so the poor northlander was doomed to a warm night with sleeping in his underwear on top of the sheets.

Sleeping had always been something Erik enjoyed, and to be quite frank he was very good at it. Friends had on multiple occasions debated upon whether a nuclear war between superpowers would have woken him up from his ancient slumber. In fact, one time while camping with the same friends they had been surprised by a storm in the night, and because of some poor work the tent had somehow managed to fly of, leaving the teenagers in their sleeping bags in the middle of a storm. Apparently Erik hadn't even twisted over and it took multiple attempts from his friends before they were able to wake him up. So Erik didn't even notice the door opening and closing and a moment later someone crawling up on him. One of his eyes slowly opened accompanied by a groan of protest, though his lips cracked open in a tired smile when he saw Sienna looking down on him. "I'm sure it would be just as fun in an hour" Erik protested with a joking tone, with the beautiful singer sitting on top of him he had absolutely no plans of falling asleep again. The power of boners is way to strong for that to ever happen.

"But I'm awake now so what the heck" Maybe the alcohol hadn't completely left his system, because Erik felt as confident as ever. Deciding that he didn't really have anything to loose Erik placed a hand behind Sienna's head and pressed his lips softly against hers for a little while before pulling back and letting go of her head. "Have to admit that this isn't the worst awakening I've ever had" He said with the closest he could come to a teasing smile while placing his hands on her hip. He had to admit she looked absolutely gorgeous sitting like that.

Tyler shrugged his shoulders and walked back over towards his brother, sitting down with a sigh. "So, I guess we are staying in the house all day tomorrow." Taylor laughed, taking a sip from his drink as Tyler did the same. "Why didn't we both get numbers tonight?" Taylor asked as Tyler shrugged his shoulders once again, rolling his eyes. "Because we're newbies?" He questioned in a curious tone as Taylor quirked his lip then stood up. "Guess that could be it. Ready to go." He patted Tyler on the shoulder and started his trek towards the exit.

Tyler soon followed behind him as they both unlocked their cars and got in. Taylor rolled down his window as Tyler did the same. "Hey bro. Want to light up the town with a race?" Tyler smirked a little bit and raised his window back up. He pulled out of the parking space and zoomed towards the edge of the parking lot, revving his engine as his brother pulled up beside him, basically doing the same. They both pulled out into the streets and the only audible were their roaring engines and tires screeching as they came up to a red light.

"Whoo!" Taylor cheered to himself as he waited for the light to turn green and him and his brother ripped the streets up once again. Eventually they made it home and argued about who won and lost the race. It was a petty argument since Tyler totally won and Taylor was being a sore loser about the whole ordeal. They looked over at their parents house and saw that all the lights were off and knew that that means that they are sleeping.

They both took off their clothes and showered, in their respective bathrooms then dressed for bed and tuned into their beds for the night. "Good night!" Taylor yelled out. "Night!" Tyler countered as they both drifted off to sleep and wondered what tomorrow was going to bring to the table for them both.

Chad laughed lightly at Honey's retort about how far gone in his sleep he had been. She was probably right, which was no offense to her. It would be a treat, her being naked and all, but Chad probably would have slept through that. As much time as he put into work during the weekday and sometimes on the weekend, once he was out for the night, it typically was the case unless one of his friends managed to keep him up. He only smiled warmly at her when she leaned her forehead down against his, allowing himself to take in her always tantalizing scent. No, but he could really wake up to this more often. "I have no objections to offering my assistance with that," he told her on a laugh and, because he somehow felt bolder whenever he was around Honey, Chad pecked her lips lightly before she climbed off to confront her family.

When Honey returned with food, Chad's face brightened a bit. He wasn't starving yet, but he would never turn down pancakes. It was one of his mom's favorite things to cook whenever she did actually cook meals, so he had developed a preference for them at a young age. Syrup and fruits probably aided in that little fact, but he graciously accepted what Honey brought food. He was relatively surprised by her enjoyment of Pokémon; he and Ricky still had their collectible poké-balls with limited edition cards from when they were kids, and he was pretty sure he still had the games on DS. Which was definitely something he found himself not wanting to admit just yet. Apparently, in his time of mentally telling himself that he wouldn't prove how much of a dork he actually was, Honey had been messing with her hair and obviously came to some conclusion because the smile on her face told him he would be obeying any command that she gave him. Chad laughed a bit when she lightly bit his lower lip while trying to coax him to simply get his things delivered to her place, which definitely almost didn't get caught since he was partly distracted by what she was doing. Before he could go ahead and tell her he would do what she wanted, Honey gave him the look and he found himself blushing at it, melting at her gaze. "Ok, ok. You already won. No need to break a man with the eyes." He said jokingly before getting a piece of pancake with a berry on top and extending it to her.

Sienna laughed in pure amusement at Erik proving that he was obviously not a morning person. It was definitely entertaining and while she understood, she also felt another part of him being very much awake, which had her smirking like a Cheshire cat on the inside. She didn't refuse when he pulled her down for another kiss, her hair falling on either side of her face. She responded for only a moment, sliding her lips against his smoothly while swiping her hair behind her ears before pulling away so that they were just a breath's distance apart. "Mmmm...as much as I would love this to continue, Shay's got breakfast waiting downstairs and I'm pretty sure her mom would kill me if we did anything in her house." Sienna shuddered at the thought. Not many parents scared or intimidated her. However, Shailene's mother? Oh, that woman had the death stare of an entire army and Sienna was bold, but she wasn't that bold. Afterwards, she rolled off of him so that she was on her feet and then extended her hand to him. "Come on, you'll love the food here."

While Sienna was doing gods know what upstairs with her mysterious beau, Shailene was making plans on her phone, having just gotten off a call when she realized Ricardo was staring directly at her. "Unless you're new hobby is being creepy, why are you looking at me like that?" Ric drank the last of his mimosa. "You're up to something." She made a face, as if trying to deny it, before sighing. "I'm trying to be a good friend. I usually hang out with Allie, but Linn needs me and Allie doesn't. I'm thinking of us doing an unofficial photo shoot at one of the studios, trying on some of the latest and getting pampered. Then afterwards, we can catch a late lunch or dinner at Providence." Ric nodded, impressed, but not surprised. Shailene was typically prepared for anything, which was one of the big reasons why he had been glad when she met Alessandra. Allie kept her on her toes and stopped Shay from being a professional, but a teenager. "You're not meeting everyone at the beach?" He asked and she shrugged, finished with her meal just as he was. "Depends on what she wants, not forcing her to do anything she doesn't want to and I personally don't need a catfight today." With that said, Shailene rose and pushed her chair back under the table, grabbing up her keys and purse on the way. "Tell Sia I'll see you guys some time later, perhaps." She pecked Ric's cheek one more time before heading out, sliding on a pair of Chanel shades as she sent out a text.

To: Linn
Girl day is def happening and you have no choice. Omw now.

Honey smiled and accepted the food from Chadwick, maintaining eye contact the whole time. She licked her lips, "Mmm Thanks Chaddy." She said pecking him on the lips. She noticed as she pulled away that he still had bags under his eyes. Gently, she stroked under his eyes. "You work to hard then you don't get enough sleep." She announced shaking her head.

"Make me a promise," She said as she gently clasped his face in her hands, "When you're with me no overworking, no trying to be anything you don't want to be. If you want to say something then you say it and I'll do the same. When we're in this apartment we're just Chadwick and Catalina. I don't want you to get stressed out." She bit her lip and looked down for a bit hoping she didn't cross a line. Taking his hand she kissed his knuckles and murmured against them, "Now about that other stuff...." With a mischievous grin.




Honey slipped he sweater back on with a giggle. She was straddling Chadwick again this time giggling and laying quick kisses on him. Dodging him so he couldn't get a good hold on her. "We gotta go soon.". When he finally kissed her deeply she gave in and stopped dodging him. She glanced at the clock and groaned. "C'mon big daddy Chaddy that's not fair you know I can't resist you." She said in between kisses. When she climbed off of him she lightly grabbed his hand and led him to the bathroom. She pulled a toothbrush out from under the counter and grabbed a towel and matching washcloth. She handed the toothbrush over to him and pecked him on the lips. "Just put that in the toothbrush holder so you have a brush whenever you spend the night. I want you to spend the night whenever you want. You don't even have to ask."

Once she left him to shower she went back in her room and waited for the people with his clothes. She lied on her back on her bed and closed her eyes for a bit, leading her to take a little nap.

Turning the shower dials off the water came to a trickle before shutting off completely. Stepping out of the glass shower and onto the the white towel that greeted her feet she did a quick pitter pat on the towel then slipped on her flip-flops that were placed right in front of the floor towel. Walking over to the towel rack that was situated by her bathtub she took her body towel and wrapped it around her waist. Walking in the direction of the door she stopped at the sink and got her toothpaste and the dental floss down out of the medicine cabinet. She flossed her teeth first (which took about four minutes) then brushed them (which was about six minutes) before finally swishing 2 teaspoonfuls of Listerine Total Care Plus Whitening in her mouth for a minutes and spitting into her sink. With her oral hygiene taken care of she moved on to her morning skincare regime. Recently Demi Lovato had sent her the products from her new skincare line; Devonne. Jasmine absolutely loved the products and she used them every morning. Her morning skincare regime took about twenty minutes every morning. She used the deep facial cleanser, the hydrating radiance mist and the 3-in-1 moisturizer primer. The Devonne scent left her face smelling like a delicious mix of vanilla, lemon and lavender and she just loved the smell. Along with the how it made her face feel and look.

Opening her bathroom door she walked out of the bathroom and started walking towards her bed when she noticed her phone sitting on the small table in front of the couch. "So that's where I left that." She said speaking her thoughts aloud. Picking up her phone she saw that she had a message from Stella. "Here's the address. Btw, she's gonna record a cover or two before we start dancing, so if you wanna do something, you're more than welcome." Putting her phone back down after reading Stella's message she walked over to where her clothes were all laid out on her bed. She put on her bra and panties and then walked over to her vanity. She put on her deodorant, lotioned her body with her bombshells in bloom body lotion and spritzed herself with her bombshells in bloom perfume.

Going back to her bed she put on her American Apparel long sleeve crop top, her Young & Reckless 86 Bonnie No Clyde sweatpants and her Nike Air Max that were white, pink, grey and black. Part of Jasmine wanted to go downstairs and have breakfast put she already had close to half a dozen donuts to work off so she opted against it. She walked over to the couch and grabbed her phone off the table. The second she had her phone in her hands it began to ring. The background photo was of Jasmine and Alessandra at the Cosmo For Latina’s Fun Fearless Awards that they had gone to in New York over the summer. Tapping the green phone button she answered the call and placed her phone to her ear. "Shouldn't you be asleep right now?" Jasmine asked knowing it was around five in the morning and Sunday in Australia. "As if I could sleep. Aaliyah and her shiny plaything of the night fuck louder than fucking monkeys and while this hotel is beautiful - the walls are thin as shit apparently." Jasmine laughed as she sat down on the couch.

"I considered drinking a bit more in hopes of passing out like Alex, but I really don't want to experience the kind of hangover she will come the morning. Or mostly likely the afternoon." Jasmine pondered for a quick second before asking, "Who's Alex?" She could hear the sound of a fridge opening and than closing on the other end of the line. "Alex is Alexis. Apparently she is this model who surprisingly enough goes to Hollywood High. Crazy, right? Well Ali noticed her on the runway and after the show she ran into us at the afterparty and - well let's just say this bitch knows how to party. Like when I say the girl get's turnt up ... she gets turnt the hell up." Jasmine mused at the thought as it sounded like Alessandra had taken a moment to take a drink of something. "Anyways, speaking of parties and turning up ... how was the prep party?" What to talk about first? Jasmine thought to herself before just spilling everything. "Well for starters ... I met these twins." Chiming in before Jasmine could go any further Alessandra asked, "Those french speaking twins?" Jasmine didn't know what set of twins Alessandra was talking about. "No. What french speaking twins?" Alessandra did say anything at first as it sounded like she was drinking something again. "Never mind. Not relevant to the story. Go on with what you were saying." Jasmine just chuckled as she went back to what she was originally saying. "Okay, well, there is I guess now a second pair of twins attending Hollywood High because last night outside the club I met Tyler and Taylor. There both crazy hot and are transferring to Hollywood High. I'll point you in there direction at school."

"Looking forward to it." She could hear Alessandra yawn before her sister's voice came through the phone again. "Well I know that's not everything. Come on. Give me the dirt." Jasmine laughed as she rolled her eyes. "Also was Shay good last night? She wasn't like trashy or sloppy or anything like that right?" There was a mixture of tiredness and concern in voice when she asked about Shailene. "Shay was fine from what I saw. I'll be honest and say that I wasn't exactly babysitting her all night like I know you probably wanted me to, but I got distracted --" "By the hot twins." Jasmine laughed again. "Yes. By the hot twins. Hashtag sorry not sorry." Both girls laughed and Jasmine could hear Alessandra yawning again as the laughter died down. "I may not have been babysitting last night but it seems like Shay was. Every time I saw her she was with Linnaea. And your girl wasn't looking to be having all that much fun. Granted if Honey approached me the same way it looked like she did Linn last night I think my night would have been shot too. You know how I feel about drama."

There was a pause on the other end and just as Jasmine was about to ask if Alessandra was there thinking her sister had dozed off Alessandra spoke. "What the hell happened between Linn and Honey?!" Alessandra sounded a lot less tired and more angry and curious now. "Chill Allie. I'm sure it was nothing and if it wasn't I can't tell you what it was. All I know is Honey seemed to be in some kind of a mood last night. When I first got there it was her and Chad talking with Stella. Chad pretty much left the second I arrived and went where ever he went and Honey just seemed really pressed about something. Anyways, when Shay and Linn hit the dance room Honey excused herself leaving me, Stells and the twins at the bar and she went and said something to your girls. I'm not sure if she came back to the bar after that because I had walked the twins over to the body painting area. All I know is I got a goodbye text and I didn't see Shay or Linn until I was going home outside the club."

Jasmine wished she could see the look on Alessandra's face as she so wanted to know what was going through her sister's head at the moment. "Jazzy am tired. It sounds like Aaliyah and dude have stopped smashing, so I'm gonna try and get to sleep before they start round three. I may call you later on today. Or yesterday. I don't know with these damn timezones plus am fucking tired. I'll talk to you later. Have a good day and please do not stay in the house all day. We live in Cali am sure it's fucking beautiful outside." Jasmine giggled as she just nodded to her sister's words. "Yes ma'am. Now go get you some sleep. I'll talk to you when I talk to you. Love you Allie." "Love you too. TTYL." The line clicked and there was silence. Putting her phone down Jasmine just sighed. She hated drama and she hoped that telling Alessandra about last night wouldn't lead to any. She was just glad the conversation had ended before Allie could bring up Isaiah and his date with Angelina. Grabbing her laptop that was also on the small table she kicked up her feet onto the couch and went online to surf her social media.

Stella finally climbed away from the stool, grabbing the SmartWater bottle her mother provided. Hunger sated and plate empty, she was more than ready to go. She grabbed up her dance bag followed by her computer bag, walked around the kitchen island to kiss her mother's cheek, and then headed out the door with a "Adios, Mama!" over her shoulder. Closing the door behind her, she pressed the button to unlock her Nexus LX. Placing her bags in the passenger seat, she climbed into the driver's, started it up, and then was pulling out of her family's garage. Once on the road, her original destination had been Sienna's place despite knowing that the Devil Girl would not be there. However, she made a nice little detour and pulled into a very familiar yet long driveway until she stopped at the parking area of the Ambrosia Estate. She only brought her phone with her and headed inside, greeted by a few of her favorite staff members.

"Hola, Guadalupe. Cómo estás?" She exclaimed upon entering the massive estate. The woman in question, naturally voluptuous and in her mid-thirties, smiled at the Prep. "Muy bien, Stella. ¿Lo sabe la señorita Jazmín que estás aquí?" Stella had always loved that there were staff at the Ambrosia estate who spoke Spanish. It was beneficial for her since she rarely spoke her parents' native language, but also to Jas and her mom who were married to Italians. It became easy for some to forget their roots and she appreciated that Allie's father had cared that much. Stella shook her head in the negative at Guadalupe's inquiry as the two made their way to one of the stairways. "No, it's kind of a surprise." Guadalupe nodded before grinning. "The usual?" Stella beamed. "Sí, por favor. Gracias." She said with a small wave and Guadalupe turned to give an order of strawberry mimosa to the kitchen staff as Stella headed up the stairs. Luckily for her, she remembered the direction to go for Jasmine's room and wound up not getting lost, not like how they both did plenty of times in the past. Remembering those days had her giggling by the time she made it to her beastie's room and she leaned against the very much open door. "They can never say you aren't the most powerful twitter user for nothing. Luckily, I'm the one who gets to claim number one Jasmine V fan." She exclaimed, stepping into Jasmine's room with a grin.

Once the water trickled down to a stop, Chad finally stepped out of Honey's shower carefully, wrapping the towel she had provided him around his lean hips. The cool air emanating from her bedroom was a pleasant welcome after the very warm shower he had just had, his body feeling much cleaner and refreshed. He stopped at the mirror over the sink, eyeing the recent marks Honey decided to plant on his skin. Knowing her, he'd probably have fresh ones before the week even started. Not that Chad was being too innocent himself, he realized with a small flush. Still, he could already anticipate the teasing he would more than likely experience when he finally caught up to Shailene or even Sienna. He bit his lower lip at the former. He had forgotten to text her last night and she would probably still want to talk. Shailene was also one to hold a grudge, so he was expecting some kind of ice reception come Sunday or even Monday, and that was only if he didn't see her today. Hopefully, she would be distracted enough to not worry herself over him. Nodding to himself and reassured by that thought, he almost made it out of the bathroom when his gaze fell on the spare toothbrush Honey had given him when she had first led him to her bathroom. He could feel himself softening at the thought before walking out of the bathroom.

Chad found himself smirking lightly at Honey being curled up on the bed, napping. Despite wanting to get dressed, he walked over to the side she was sleeping on, stroking her high cheekbone with his thumb affectionately, allowing the digit to graze the soft skin there slowly before leaning down and kissing her forehead, not putting too much pressure as to wake her up just yet. He liked the idea of them just being Chad and Catalina here, just being together. Regardless of any drama, this space felt...safe. He didn't know what would happen with Linnaea or Ricky, or even when they would have to talk about where graduation would leave them. For now, this was okay. He was brought out from his musings by a knock on the door followed by someone opening it. Chad glanced back to see a teen, one of Honey's brothers he had presumed, giving him a wary and suspicious gaze. "So, you're the boyfriend, huh?" The guy asked and Chad honestly couldn't find it in him to be intimidated by a guy who wasn't that thick in muscle nor as tall as him, but he didn't understand the skepticism the guy might have had in relation to his connection with Honey. Chad rose and walked over to the door, taking the clothes from Nicky's (he would learn that later) hands. "Yeah, I am. If you don't mind, I'd like to get dressed and I can't do that if the door is open." Nicky reluctantly lowered his hands, glanced over at a sleeping Honey, before sizing Chadwick up. "Just messing with you, dude. But no funny business in here or we'll kill you." It would have probably felt like a plausible threat had it been anyone other than Chadwick, whose entire life had been filled with bodyguards and some slimy-looking guys his father was affiliated with. But he nodded nonetheless and closed the door upon Nicky's retreat. Glancing back at his sleeping girlfriend, Chad decided to go into the bathroom to finish drying off and getting dressed. Once finished, he returned to the bedroom to use some of the lotion he saw that wasn't Honey's typical 'girlier' fragrance, but something a bit more neutral. Afterwards, he headed over to the bed and sat beside her still form, a hand on her shoulder. "And here I thought I was the one holding us up," he said aloud before kissing her cheek, close to her mouth in an attempt to rouse her awake while brushing fingers over her sides to see how ticklish his favorite little crooner could be.

Shailene was using her Bluetooth as she drove to Linnaea's place, talking to her favorite photographer. "Avez-vous besoin d'autre chose, Mademoiselle Lehman?" Ralph asked and she considered it for a second before deciding, "Oui, se il vous plaît. Si nous pouvions avoir vin et des collations légères, je serais très reconnaissant." Wine and light snacks would be able to hold the girls over until their dinner or lunch, depending on how long they stayed at the studio. Providence would be a great end to their little modeling time. Afterwards, she considered going to one of the bonfire parties at the beach by some college students, a few of whom were Hollywood High School alumnae. It would definitely be fun and besides, while she wasn't forcing Linn to do anything, she also thought a few college guys could do them both some good. They would be close enough to Richard's beach mansion (because she refused to call it a house) and could stay there for the night to be treated to a lazy Sunday filled with homework and pampering there since she could get a team from Caudalie over to them tomorrow to complete the girl weekend. "Bien sûr. Je ai hâte de vous voir bientôt." Despite not being able to see the very attractive and married man, Shailene smiled widely. "Tu es le meilleur, Ralph. Merci beaucoup." Once that call was complete, it took her another five minutes to get to her blonde friend's home. Once there, one of the valets took her car and Shailene stepped into the beautiful estate, greeted by her second-favorite Snow resident, Alice. "SHAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!!" The brunette exclaimed as she practically attached herself to Shailene's waist despite her tiny arms not being able to fully enclose the Royal. Shailene grinned down at lovely blue eyes. "Bonjour mon amour. Comment allez-vous?" Like always and mostly because she was still learning, Alice took a moment, her lower lip jutted out adorably as she considered her response. Soon, though, she was speaking again. "Je suis grand. Je vous ai manqué. Vous ne avez jamais me rendre visite." She finished with a deeper pout, signifying her distress at Shailene not having visited her as much during the summer. Shailene giggled and tried to walk, but Alice was relentless in her grip and only seemed willing to allow the Royal cheerleader to drag her along. "I'm sorry, sweetie. I'll plan something for us one of these days, ok? Where's your sister?" Alice's eyes became impossibly brighter and she held out her small pinkie. "Pinky promise." It wasn't a question, it was a demand and Shailene surrendered every time. Children just seemed to have that kind of power over her. She looped their pinkies with a firm, "Pinkie promise." Alice beamed before saying, "Linnie's in her room pouting. She only went riding for an hour this morning." The information sunk in for Shailene who only frowned for a moment, still upset that her friend had chosen to ignore her text. It was likely that Linn had simply missed it, but still. No, they weren't going for depressed today. They were going to have fun and that was it.

After seeing Alice off to her playroom, Shailene made her way to Linnaea's bedroom, tapping the door hard. She wasn't here to coax Linnaea out of the house. She was demanding. "Like I told you, we are having a girls' day, missy, and you're going to like it. So, you better be dressed in there and have a bag packed."

Honey faintly heard Chadwick say something about holding them up and felt his soft lips gently kiss her cheek before gasping awake when he tickled her. She giggled and squirmed away from him before sending him a smile. If anyone else had tried to tickle her she might have flipped out but she didn't mind Chad watching her squirm and let out ungodly giggles. Giggling she captured him in her arms and pulled him down on her. with a grin, she crossed her legs against his back and murmured against his mouth, "You took too long and it's very hard to focus on sleep with a hot guy in my bed." She gave him a devilish grin, "Especially when I have so much fun slowly turning you into a cheetah. "

"You should probably text Shay I imagine she's worried about you." She said when she finally released him with a playfully nip at his ear. Indiscreetly, she let her eyes roam him. She always liked his preppy style, it was a typically a stark contrast to hers but nevertheless a constant reminder that he really liked her exactly how she was. "You look cute Chaddy,", she said slipping out of bed.

She walked over to him and frowned a bit. She reached Chad's chest and had to look up to look at him. "See this is what I'm talking about." Her nose crinkled up and her brow furrowed. She shook her head before walking over to her closet and pulling on a pair of 5' wedges. Once she walked back over to him she smiled. She was now face to face with him, exactly how she liked it. After proving exactly how convenient heels were by kissing him until he had an adorable blush tinting his cheeks, she breathlessly murmured, "There's no way I'm wearing these at the beach so you'll just have to life me up all day or something because I like easy access to you."

It was becoming increasingly obvious that they would not get much done is her bedroom so she slipped on her sandals before taking his hand and leading him to the kitchen where her family had congregated. "This is Chadwick." She said smiling at him before training her eyes on her sibling. "You will not use him, You will not flirt with him, you will not threaten him, and I swear on everything Ally if you touch him I will hurt you." With that she picked up baby Gino and blew a raspberry on his chubby face before nuzzling him lightly. "His formula is in the fridge with instructions and if you have any issues call his nanny or me. His favorite toy is the blue rabbit." She set Gino down in his play pen and waved her fingers at him before returning to Chadwick.

"Seriously?! Catalina fucking Perez finally got tied down. We need to commemorate this" Priss said with a grin. A few pictures and a little while later they were standing in her lobby. As she posted the picture she noticed a girl, maybe a freshman at HHS taking a picture of them. She simply lifted his hand to her mouth and gently kissed his knuckles. "You should drive since I don't know where I'm going and I can't see past my steering wheel now."

Linn waved goodbye to her friend, before heading home. Alice's nanny had come to pick her up, which she was upmostly grateful for. It seemed like she was doing this a lot recently. The sleep-deprived 50 year old woman pulled up, and Linn slid into the back seat, now beginning to feel the affects of the alcohol. She was going to have one hell of a headache... What had she been thinking? Letting herself get all worked up over a guy! That was totally not her. Last time she checked, she was far from a relationship, anyway.

The car ride only lasted about 15 minutes, but it was enough for Linn to close her eyes and try to make sense of the muddled up emotions. Sure, she was sad, and angry, but there was nothing she could do now. She needed to apologize to Honey. It wasn't like she went out of her way to upset Linn - she was following her heart, like Linn would have done in her position. How would she have reacted? The same way? Probably not, but then again, as soon as Honey mentioned how she felt, Linn probably would have lost him anyway. As she had said before, how could she compete with her?

The car pulled up in front of the estate, and Linn slid out of the car, slamming the door behind her. The lights were on in the kitchen and living room, she could see that from here, but Alice's lights were off. She was asleep. What time was it? Linn decided she didn't really care, but followed the older woman in silently.

The inside of the house was eerily quiet - Linn didn't like it. Her father always slept with soft music playing, so that they could hear it throughout the house at night. She didn't hear it then, which meant her father was awake. She turned the corner to see him sitting at the round breakfast table, tapping away with his fingers. "Linn." Was all he said to acknowledge her presence, and she shuffled in, taking a seat next to him slowly. She sat there in silence, not knowing what to say. A few awkward minutes passed, before he finally began to talk. "You've been acting weird lately... Very quiet. And you haven't been seeing Silver all that much, either." He began. So he had caught on? Well, it was better than usual. "Truth is, sweetie, I'm getting worried." She swallowed. It had been a while since her father had paid this much attention to her. "And I had two calls earlier... I think you'll like them." Linn's head shot up to look at him. She had been staring at the wood grain on the table, but now her eyes were fixed on his face. "What? What happened?" Her eyes were eager, excited to find out exactly what was going on. HE was obviously trying to look sincere, but suddenly he broke out smiling. "I got a call from your agent earlier." That was a shock. Linn hadn't talked to her agent for years, not since her mom had died. "He said that there was a local modelling agency that were looking to scout people out, and were appealing for people your age. You're in for a good chance."

Linn could tell that wasn't all he wanted to say, though. "Even better is that we bought a company today. It's guaranteed to make a profit, so... I've planned a little something for you and your friends..." An excited looking Linn couldn't help but try to sneak a look into her father's work bag as he dug around, before pulling out about 20 or so plane tickets. "What?! Dad, are you serious?" His resulting smile confirmed that he wasn't kidding, and she leaned forward and gave him the biggest hug she could manage. "Where to?! And when?!" She could hardly contain her excitement at the idea of taking her friends with her to another country. A holiday! She couldn't believe it. "Christmas holidays. The alps, in France, for skiing and lodging. And the lodge is reserved for you and your friends." He finished, hugging his daughter back. "Now go on, get to bed. Long weekend ahead, ey?" He gave her one last hug and a smile, before Linn dragged herself upstairs, slipping under the covers, and falling asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow.

The next day, Linn woke early. She had a headache pounding somewhere in her skull, somewhere she couldn't pinpoint. The sun was streaming through her window, but it was more golden than sunlight. It was an early sun, probably about 6 or 7 in the morning, but Linn didn't care. She slid out of bed, changing into a simple pair of jodhs and a designer polo shirt with her name appliquéd on the back in felt. She pulled on a pair of riding boots and crept out of her room, quickly peeking in at her sleeping sister, who looked very peaceful in her slumber. It brought a smile to Linn's lips before she headed outside, breaking into a jog as she headed down the beloved path to the stables. It wasn't long before the smell of hay filled her nose, and the sound of whinnying horses greeting the new day met her ears. It brought a smile to her lips.

She entered the stable and hurried over to her horse, kissing him on the nose. "Hey, boy." She whispered into his muzzle. "Only guy I need is you, huh?" She gave him one final kiss before searching the tack room for his saddle and bridle, returning quickly and working to get his gear in place. He had already been fed, about an hour ago, thanks to the grooms they had. It meant she could ride him like this as early as she liked. It took her no time at all to mount up, and be galloping through the fields as fast as she could - towards a lonely tree on a hill, which almost nobody knew about. She was confident that nobody would find her, maybe she could think about some stuff that she needed to think over.

The most important thing about this tree was that it was her mother's favourite, and that was where her grave lay.

It took her no time at all to get there, but Linn was sat under the tree, trailing the grass through her fingers for almost an hour. Silver was grazing not too far from her - she could easily catch him, and the leaves waved in a warm breeze. It was her favourite place to be alone. She brushed the dirt off of the gravestone in front of her, exposing her mother's name and date of birth, and death. It was a very peaceful place. Linn loved it there, mostly because it let her be close to where her mother would come a lot.

Naea hardly remembered the time, but soon enough, almost two hours had passed. She couldn't remember what she said, but there was nobody around to hear it anyway, and soon she had mounted up and headed back at breakneck speed. After she got back, she untacked the horse carefully, packing it away and wiping it over with a sponge, before lovingly brushing Silver's coat until it shone. A loud voice broke her concentration as she worked. "NAEA! Your phone went off!" The little cherub of the name Alice practically yelled as Linn stood up straight and peered over the door of the stable, Silver at her back. The little girl brandished the phone in front of Linn's face, and she took it, the screen black. She turned it on, and had to cover her mouth to stop her from cussing.

"Oh no! Shai's gonna be here any minute! Rapid, Alice, nous nous devons dépêcher!" She exited the stall, giving Silver a quick pat on the shoulder, before scooping up her little sister and hot tailing it to the house. She let the little girl down before she took the stairs two at a time, thumping up the stairs. Almost a few seconds after she had gotten up and had dug through her wardrobe to find a pretty white, lace dress that came to her knees and a beaded yellow necklace, she heard the shrieks of her little sister's delight in seeing one of Naea's best friends again. Chuckling to herself, she grabbed some sandals and slipped them over her ankles, giving herself a once over in the mirror before heading downstairs, to the amusing sight of Shai dragging the little girl along, Alice seemingly unable to let go. "Linnie's in her room pouting. She only went riding for an hour this morning." She heard the little girl say, and she rolled her eyes. "For your information, miss, it was at least two hours. And I was NOT pouting!" She waited for her friend at the top of the stairs, as Alice was shepherded off to the playroom, before heading into her room just ahead of Shai.

"Like I told you, we are having a girls' day, missy, and you're going to like it. So, you better be dressed in there and have a bag packed." Linn couldn't help grinning. "Ahh, is my fabulous dress not good enough, ma chérie?" She pouted slightly before quickly returning to her smile. "Oh my god! You'll never guess what I have in store!" She squirmed in anticipation, before finally exploding with, "My dad got me and you and about 18 other people tickets to France in the Winter hols! He booked a lodge and skiing and everything. It was a lovely surprise." She couldn't help but hug her friend at that point, giving her a tight squeeze. "Also, I'm really sorry for missing the text. Alice waltzed in to the stables this morning with it, yelling that I had a text. I miight have gone out to exercise Silver really early this morning without it." She pulled a face. "I think I should apologize to Honey and Chad though. I was really irrational yesterday." She mentioned out of the blue, under her breath. "But that's enough of that! What have you got planned for today, Mademoiselle Lehman?" She finished with a cheeky smirk, sitting on the bed and swinging her legs to and fro.

Erik had to laugh at the new information considering food and parents "Well, breakfast sounds allot better than homicide" he said with a laugh before rolling of the opposite side of the bed. Making sure that he was standing with his back to Sienna as he started the search for his clothes. Luckily he hadn't thrown them far and a moment later yesterdays clothes was back on and he could turn to look at Sienna. "You look absolutely lovely" Erik said with a smile, eyeing this prime example of the human species up and down. Not that he had ever really been a fan of high-waist shorts, but they looked surprisingly good on Sienna. Besides, Erik wasn't stupid enough to tell her that he didn't like the modern fashion that much.

A quick check in the mirror before walking over to his gorgeous -...girlfriend? Erik honestly had no idea- was mandatory. The mirror was unfortunately not one to sugar-coat stuff and Erik had to take in the disaster his hair was. One of the many problems with having long hair was that it required allot of grease to stay the way Erik preferred it to, but the hair gel he used didn't last that long and upon waking up most of it had lost it effect so now it was pretty much just hanging down. Actually not looking that far from a haircut a stereotypical emo would have. "Sorry you have to see this" he said with an excusing smile while reaching into his pocket and pulling out a hairband. For some weird reason he was always prepared for hair emergencies. With a quick move he grabbed his hair and put it up in a tiny ponytail at the back. That type of hair was far from what Erik preferred, but he just had to make it work.

After another quick look in the mirror to see how his hair was looking he shrugged and walked over to Sienna. "Lets get some breakfast before your friends start to get ideas" Erik said and grabbed her hand. He managed to pull her out into the hallway before he remembered that he had no idea where things were in this house. "Maybe you should lead the way. Take me to the throne chamber my lady" for that line he put on his best impression of an upper class London accent, even throwing in a small bow before following her towards whichever place the breakfast food was served.

Shailene beamed when she saw Linnaea and only shook her head idly at the obvious excitement Linn was trying to tamper down, which was definitely a lot better than the blonde's temperament yesterday. Good, she decided in her head just as Linn decided she couldn't keep the news to herself any longer. Shailene's eyebrows rose at, firstly, the exuberance from her friend which caused a smile to flit across her face, and then at the very lovely gift Mr. Snow bestowed on whomever Linnaea invited. Shailene could only respond to the hug while saying, "That's sounds awesome, love. I suck at skiing, btw, but I do make snowsuits look good and hot chocolate is always great." Shailene finally stepped into the spacious bedroom, her eyes taking in details despite having been in this very space several times. It was a habit of hers, she had come to realize some time ago.

When Linnaea mentioned Honey and Chad once and tried to gloss it over by asking about their plans, Shay's attention snapped immediately upon the blonde. "You are absolutely right. Enough of that. They don't exist today. This is all about us." Shailene declared with a saucy lilt in her voice. As much as she loved her best friend, he had some things he needed to take care of with his girlfriend before he considered saying a word to either Shay or Linn. And truthfully, she wasn't angry with him because well, how was he supposed to know Linnaea had a crush on him? But still, Shailene found herself jumping in defense of the blonde, even when she knew that Honey was, in fact, in the right for feeling a little peeved by Linn last night. She wasn't going to tell either of them that any time soon. Instead, she waltzed over to Linn's bed with a grin on her face. "Well, because I'm your friend and you obviously love me, you're going to love me even more today. We're doing a photo shoot. Just some time to be girls and try on make-up, get our nails and hair done, and get photographed which we can post for all of our haters and friends to fawn over. Ralph said they got a new shipment of items over at one of the Wilhelmina
studios downtown with wine and snacks to get us over. After that, we have a reservation at Providence and then I got us invites to a bonfire by a few UCLA students, and then we could stay the night at Richard's beach estate to get spa treatments and do homework tomorrow. I'm not even answering my phone today. What do you think?"

"They can never say you aren't the most powerful twitter user for nothing. Luckily, I'm the one who gets to claim number one Jasmine V fan." Stella exclaimed, stepping into her room with a grin. Jasmine beamed at the presence of her best friend. "Actually that honor is reserved for mommy dearest, but if you think you can take her you are more than welcomed to try. However, as your friend I feel I should mention that Allie wanted that honor and she just couldn't handle all that is mommy Villegas." She said with a laugh as she closed her laptop. "What are you doing anyways? I thought I was suppose to be meeting you and Sienna at the studio?" Jasmine asked curiously. It wasn't that she wasn't beyond happy to see her bestie but she was curiosity as to what caused this little pop up visit. Maybe Sienna had gotten busy and decided to cancel the studio session? Or maybe Stella had just gotten bored and decided to hang out before they're dance session. "Also, do you think having three outfits for a simple day at the dance studio followed by a trip to the beach is a bit excessive. I mean do you even count a bikini as an outfit? You know what forget it."

Guadalupe knocked on the opened door at the moment making her presence known before walking into Jasmine room. She was holding a silver platter that held two strawberry mimosas in champagne glasses and a plate on mimosa macarons. "Aquí tienes damas. Yo pensé que iba a traer algunos aperitivos con sus bebidas." Guadalupe said as she put the small round silver platter down on one of the small ottomans at the end of Jasmine's bed. "Gracias Guadalupe." Jasmine said as she got up off the couch and walked over to her bed. "En cualquier momento el tiempo señorita Jasmine. Usted damas divertirse. Si necesitas algo más soy alrededor." Jasmine nodded with a smile as Guadalupe took her leave closing Jasmine's door behind her. Plopping down on the edge of her bed Jasmine grabbed a glass in one hand and took a macaron in the other. She wasn't planning on having a real breakfast this morning so the macarons would have to do.

Stella took a moment to process Jasmine's words before laughing a bit. "You know, I'll just take fourth place. Mama V is on another level and I'm just not about that life," Stella said, quick to retract that statement. She loved her best friend's mother like her own, but she also knew there was no winning when it came to the number one in Jasmine's life. Plus, she'd always have to come last to Jas' family, which was always good because she felt like family regardless. "Oooh, and Mom was thinking that we should all do some kind amusement park thing one of these weekends, they'll pay. She feels like she and your mom haven't hung out in awhile, and we should have fun before the school year gets too real." Comfortably, Stella sat on the edge of Jasmine's couch, shrugging at Jasmine's questioning on her being there. "Sia should be finishing up at Shay's house and on her way home with Ric. I was bored and didn't feel like being there earlier than her. Plus, I haven't been here a while since some people were really busy this summer," she answered easily, emphasizing the "someone" with a playful smile in Jasmine's direction. A thought struck Stella a moment afterwards and she questioned, "Also, did you get those twins' numbers or do I need to play super-spy? Cuz I saw you eyeing them and you danced with one, and we both know I'm a whiz at this." She could also just ask around, like possibly finding area codes which could definitely narrow down any search, but chose not to include that. It was just safe to know that the Royals asking her for favors wasn't completely out of left field; she had skills.

Before Stella could answer about the outfits, Guadalupe had knocked on the door and came in. Stella beamed at the older woman, showing her pearly whites to the woman who only chuckled at the brightness. "Gracias, Guadalupe," she exclaimed for which she received an affectionate smile. Once the older woman was gone, Stella looked back to see Jasmine already moving to her bed. Stella bounced over to the ottoman to grasp the other glass of strawberry mimosa before moving back to the couch, which she was quick to get comfortable on. She purposefully skipped out on the macaroons, despite being a fan. "I think even Allie would tell you that three outfits are necessary. I mean, I've got one of those outfits on now, but there are like, three in my bag." Stella sipped the cool liquid for a moment, before glancing back at her phone. "Anyways, this is probably the first time in a while that I'm wearing a bikini. I know we're with friends, but...do you think it would be too much or should I just go with a one-piece?" Stella bit her lip thoughtfully. Ever since her bout with anorexia, it had been hard for her to adjust to being actually comfortable with more revealing clothes. Sure, she wore crop tops, but they weren't overly flashy like what Sienna or Honey would wear. They would never go any higher than revealing her belly button and while everyone else had told her to just get over it and move on with her life, she still felt wary about her image. Compared to Jasmine, while Stella was fit, she was just a bit thicker. Sure, she may try to act brave and tough, and like she wasn't affected by the skinny fad of Hollywood and the world in general, but she couldn't pretend like she hadn't passed out and been diagnosed as underweight at one point. And it was easy - her hanging out with someone as wild and as confident as Sienna, and just pretending that she was just as fine. However, as her psychiatrist and family had told her, Jasmine was her best friend for a reason and if Stella couldn't even turn to Ness with her feelings, she should be at least willing to be a bit more vulnerable with her number one.

Back at the Lehman-Gonzalo residence, Sienna allowed herself to grin at the amusing sight of Erik quickly turning around, failing to conceal his more "awake" body part and find more clothes. She smiled a bit as his compliment, a small heat rushing to her cheeks which she was quick to shove away with a swipe at a few strands of hair that had stuck to her face. She didn't make a comment, at first, about his hair. It hadn't really seemed like an issue to her, but his actual desire to preserve some kind of appearance...was endearing. Him taking her hand was definitely not something Sienna did; it was too affectionate and she was just simply territorial. Them getting any closer, despite the obvious lack of a label and her actually still being interested with him without sleeping with him yet, was a thought she hadn't thought of until their hands touched and it left her...she didn't know what she was, but she found that he wasn't pulling away and was even smiling when they stepped out of the spare bedroom.

"Why, of course, good sir," Sienna replied with a small giggle, putting on her best British accent. While still holding Erik's hand, she led him downstairs and down one of the many halls of the Gonzalo estate to the usual dining room where Ricardo was currently nursing a glass of water and on his phone. The King of Hollywood High looked up only for a moment before planting his signature smirk on his face. "It took you long enough." Sienna shot him a look. "Shut up." She said and took a seat at the table with Erik sitting beside her. Ric ignored her and looked right at Erik. "Be careful, man. She's a man eater.". He said lightly and avoided the punch from Sienna. Ric's moods might give people a whiplash, but it was what it was and as long as Erik didn't feel the need to point that out. Meanwhile, the staff came with plates of food, a beautiful gourmet selection since it was Erik's first time at the residence and no one knew his preferences. "Shut up, Ricky. Not like you're in a rush today. You're my bitch for the day and last I checked, I didn't need your opinion." Sienna smirked coolly at the icy glance her best friend tossed her, but chose not to make any more smart remarks. It didn't take them long to finish eating and soon enough, they were piling in Sienna's truck and on their way to Sienna's home.

Chad laughed down at Honey's giggling and the obvious freedom in her overall demeanor, only stopping in his assault when she pulled him down. Chad smiled sheepishly about being called "hot," which wasn't exactly a term people associated him with. Things like "adorable" or "cute" were more fitting term, or at least things he was familiar with and like always when it came to being in Honey's presence, the blush came unbidden. He laughed at her calling him a cheetah as they separated. Chad glanced back at his phone for a moment when she made the comment about Shailene, instinctively reaching for it just as Honey gave him a compliment. Sighing, he text his best friend only for her to tell him that she and Linn were having a girl's day and this was the last time she was communicating with them unless they all did something big or something went down. Which wasn't surprising, but it did leave him surprised when Honey seemed to be upset about something.

Before Chad knew it, Honey's lips were on his and he forgot why has he supposed to be worried about being anywhere other than where he was at the moment. Despite the blushing, he chuckled at Honey's face, hands on her waist as he said, "Like I told you, I definitely do not mind." Once they seemed to be ready, Honey led him out of her room, with Chad texting Shay quickly that he hoped she and Linn had a good day. Regardless of whatever Linn felt about him or Honey at the moment, he still did care about his friend and knew that whatever Shay had planned would be good for the both of them. It was in a flurry that Chad found himself being introduced to Honey's family, pictures being taken, and them somehow making it downstairs only for paparazzi to randomly show up. It definitely was a bit overwhelming since his dad had paid the snoops to be a bit more discreet with their taking pictures or even spying, but Honey's hand never seemed to leave his and that in itself was enough to make him deal. Once they made it past the nosy photographers, Honey redirected his attention to her and he laughed lightly. "Sure, no problem. Sienna's probably just getting there anyway since she stayed with Shay." He told her and let her into the passenger side of the vehicle before climbing into the driver's. It was only after they pulled out of the parking lot and onto a highway did Chad finally ask, "It's been bugging me for a minute, but is everything alright with you and Aaliyah? I know she left with Allie and Shay hadn't taken that too well, but those two always make up. And I noticed you and Allie hadn't even talked so..." Chad normally didn't concern himself with anything Aaliyah Lapierre related unless they were just in the same space and that was mostly because they had known each other for years. But it was because he didn't care for her drama and she didn't really care that much about him that they had no real need to worry about one another. However, he was dating Honey and Honey was Aaliyah's number one. That would force even rivals to have to interact.

"Anyways, this is probably the first time in a while that I'm wearing a bikini. I know we're with friends, but...do you think it would be too much or should I just go with a one-piece?" Jasmine gave no immediate reply, as she sat with a look of deep melancholy; she hated when Stella asked her questions like this. It just reminded her that her bestie had an eating disorder, one that she would always struggle with. To Jasmine, Stella was a gorgeous, but she knew that Stella didn't see herself in the same light that she and others did. It sometimes frustrated her when Stella made low-key comments about her weight because Stella wasn't an overweight person. Yes, she was bigger than Jasmine but only slightly. Which was more than okay because Stella was perfect just the way she was.

Before Stella could really take notice Jasmine popped a fourth macaron in her mouth and picked up her glass as she made her way back over to the couch. She gave a noncommittal shrug as she sat down bringing the glass to her mouth as she took a swig of the chilled strawberry flavored liquid. "Stells we live in Cali. There are girls outside walking around in dental floss calling it clothing. No a bikini would definitely not be too much, but if you'd feel more comfortable in a one piece then by all means wear a one-piece. You don't need to reveal all to be sexy." After finding out about Stella's eating disorder Jasmine had spent many days along with seemingly endless long hours learning everything she could about Stella's disorder. She had learned all about what to say and how to act. In the beginning it had been really awkward at first because she had been nervous about saying the wrong thing and being the one to make Stella relapse. But, eventually things had gone back to normal between the two girls, but Jasmine still remember everything she had read.

"Also I think the amusement park is a good idea. I think it would be fun. Besides am sure my mom misses your mom just as much as she misses her." It was weird how after she and Stella became besties they're moms formed they're own b.f.f. friendship. Not weird in a bad way, just weird. Drinking what remained of her mimosa Jasmine recalled Stella's comment about summer and the twins. "Oh! And I know you are not trying to guilt me right now." Jasmine gave a sarcastic sigh. "Okay. Maybe I wasn't the best of besties this summer, but the Jasminators needed me and I them. And just ... well we both know I love you and you me. So am just gonna assume I've been forgiven." Smiling a cheeky smile she then thought about the twins and her smile turned to a pout. "I can't believe I spaced on getting the number. Allie would be so ashamed to call me her sister right now." She was joking about Alessandra being ashamed although she would probably make fun of her for getting so caught up that she forgot to close the deal. "Good thing I have a kick-ass best friend with awesome spy skills and countless connects."

She sighed, "She thought that I was betraying her. First for ditching her for you and Stella. Then because I have been hanging out with Sienna. Add in the fact that everybody was making a big deal out of me and Ricky hanging out and you get a pissed Queen Bee." She frowned, "It sucks but I mean I'm so much happier and at ease when I'm with you, Shay, and Stella... even Sienna. Though I imagine Shay's not too happy with me." Her full lips turned downwards and she leaned her head against the headrest.

Aaliyah not trusting her practically nailed the head on the coffin of their friendship. She was pissed but so was Aaliyah. Honey also knew there was no way Aaliyah would apologize. Chances were that Aaliyah would finally realize that Honey wasn't with Ricky and she'd get over it and leave Honey alone, but that didn't help her right now. Glancing at Chadwick though, she realized she didn't need to be in a group of friends that were bitchy to each other.

She intwined their hands before raising them to her lips and gently kissing them. "Don't worry about her, I'll deal with the backlash. " She added. They drove in silence the rest of the ride to Sienna's. Honey lived a bit farther out then everybody else. Unlike most of the students, who lived in the Hills, she lived in the city. She glanced at him and bit her lip knowing that they'd have to dial down the PDA once they got to the studio and the beach. She didn't like having to tone down their relationship when they were around people but she knew Chadwick wasn't used to the attention.

When they arrived at Sienna's house she let herself out the car and walked over to where Chadwick was getting out. She shook her head gently pushing him back in the car. This time in the backseat. She climbed into his lap with her face tucked into his neck, her legs hung out the side of the open door. "Chaddy, I need to know I didn't cause any issues between you and Ricky or Linnaea." She bit her lip, "I'm not gonna lie, Linnaea still makes me feel threatened. I mean you'll probably go to the same ivy league... and I'll be on tour. She'll be there and I won't. " She looked up at him and smiled, "But I trust you. Which is why I want to make sure I didn't mess anything up for you."

Stella sunk into the couch just a bit when she heard Jasmine move as the silence seemed to weigh down on her. She knew that the singer would be more than supportive - always had been and she hated being the one who ruined the mood. But she was also trying. Before, she would suck in all of her feelings and she still did that from time to time, but she was improving just a bit. When Jasmine came over to the couch, Stella sighed and nodded slowly. "You're right, you're right. I'm sorry. This was stupid." She said in one breath, shaking her heads as if to rid herself of the thoughts but not before grasping Jasmine's hand gently, giving her a light squeeze and an appreciative yet apologetic smile.

Only a moment later and they were moving on in their conversation, a much needed change since the guilt of ruining the once happy atmosphere was a bit overwhelming. Stella smiled at the thought of their mothers, particularly because they had grown so close. Jasmine thought it was a bit weird, Stella thought it was absolutely precious. While she never appreciated her mom complaining to Jas' mom about everything that Stella did, she liked the fact that her mother was a bit more sociable than some of the other Hollywood High mothers. Plus, it was always a bonus when their moms were willing to hang out back in the day so Stella and Jasmine could spend more time together. She laughed at Jasmine's slight pause after admitting that she pretty much disappeared for the summer, holding her glass only a little tighter so that she wouldn't spill the contents. That was too much strawberry goodness to be giving to the carpet. "Yeah, I don't know what you'd do without me to be honest," Stella joked dryly at the thought of Jasmine not actually getting the twins' numbers. Even if it were for something as simple as hanging out with both of them, she was curious. Granted, a part of this had to do with her wanting to be one of the first to know about the next Jasmine V ship so everyone could stop harping on her for Justin Bieber. Stella was a shipper, as everyone knew. She was down for adding another to her list.

"We should probably start heading out soon. Truthfully, if Sia wanted to, she could just make it a spa day at her place. That spa is so nice." She said this after drinking the rest of her mimosa and sliding off of the couch. Stretching her arms above her head, Stella yawned a bit, getting the last bit of sleep out of her system with the cool rush of liquid that settled in her belly. Quirking her lips thoughtfully she glanced back at Jasmine inquiring, "What's Izz doing today? Pretty sure Chad and Ricky are probably gonna go play video games or something at Sia's. Or did he have a bit of a nightcap with Angel?" Stella wiggled her eyebrows suggestively at the end of her questioning, a small smirk playing at the corner of her lips. She was actually interested in the end result of Isaiah's date, not that she had anything against the pairing, but out of general interest. It was one of the few - if not, the first - dates Isaiah had been on after breaking up with Alessandra. Curiosity and intrigue was a given.

Chad wished he could be surprised by the thought of Aaliyah being upset about Honey navigating between Rick's circle and her own, but he wasn't. They had spent too many years together for him to be surprised by a lot of things she said and did anymore. A shade overcame his face at the thought of Rick and Honey, but it didn't remain there for long. Honey had made that clear - she had chosen him, not Ricky. At her placing her head down, Chad sighed, placing a hand over hers. "I can't speak for Aaliyah, but Shay isn't really upset with you. We haven't talked much since yesterday, but I know her well enough to know that she's not picking sides. She just knows that Linn, I guess, isn't going to be okay until they spend their time together. You'll see." He said with a reassuring smile, stroking the smooth skin on the back of her hand. When she returned the sentiment and kissed their entwined fingers, Chad offered her a brighter smile.

When they reached Sienna's place, Chad was a bit surprised when Honey led him to his backseat, which definitely earned him the memory of them seemingly getting out of hand whenever they were in these situations. He absentmindedly thought of Feliciana or anyone coming out to see them like this, but when Honey buried her face into the crook of his neck, all thoughts ceased on his part. Idly, he caressed the nape of her neck, playing with shorter hairs that didn't make it into her style for the day, a comforting notion he recalled his mother doing back when he was a child. It got the desired effect because Honey relaxed a bit in his arms. "And I'm not gonna lie, Rick still has me threatened," Chad admitted. "You and me? It's like one of those cheesy ABC family teen movies. You think Linn and I make sense, I think you and Rick make sense. But like you said, you trust me and...I trust you." Chad smiled a bit and cupped the side of her face, thumb stroking the skin of her high cheekbone. "If anything is messed up, it's if either of them choose to mess with childhood friendships over our relationship. And I'd never blame you for that." With that said, he leaned up a bit to kiss her softly, which definitely turned into a much longer makeout session (didn't it always) than he intended. Regretfully, though, Chad pulled back and gazed up at Honey breathlessly. "Not that I don't enjoy this, but I wouldn't enjoy Sia coming out with a camera and trying to post us on YouTube." He said with a small chuckle since, well, Sienna would do some crazy shit like that. Or, at least, she'd have it just to tease them and delete later.

Once the two were out of the car and allowed one of the valets to take Chad's car, Chadwick led Honey into the house, their hands entwined which Feliciana seemed more than happy to acknowledge with just a knowing smile. "Buongiorno, Feliciana. Come stai?" Chadwick greeted Sienna's caretaker with a smile. He wasn't particularly fluent with Italian, not like Sienna was obviously. However, he had picked up on a few things over the years. Feliciana only smiled back. "Great, sweetheart. And hello again, dear," she replied, directing the last part of her statement to Honey with a small nod. Afterwards, she gestured in the direction of one of the outdoor pathways saying, "Little Miss is in the recording studio. There are some refreshments there. We'll get you kids some snacks a bit later." Nodding, Chad thanked her and led Honey along. Despite being friends with a bunch of rich people and seeing a lot of beautiful houses his entire life, the newer one erected just for Sienna's family was probably was his favorite - not that it was bigger than the Ambrosia Estate or more luxurious the Lapierre's, but because the Mediterranean style fit Sienna. It encompassed her culture, but also had a relaxing vibe. The architecture had an almost rustic yet modern feel, like an old Italian or French villa he would have seen in Europe that belonged to a wine family. Which wasn't actually far from the truth by any means. "I loved it here during the summers. Even when we weren't going out and stuff, just chilling by the pool with Sia, Leah, and Rick was just great," Chad said absentmindedly. Those had been the days, he surmised. Back when, while he and Aaliyah weren't close or anything, they were in each other's presence enough to deal with it and back when Sienna and Aaliyah pretty much ran Rick around. Shaking the thoughts away, Chad led Honey through the lush scenery, past the pool, before going to the entertainment section of the house, which consisted of two billiard rooms, a full gym and spa, a bowling alley, game room, private theater, and the recording studio and dance studio Xavier had included in the floor plans without Sienna having known at the time.

Opening one of the walnut doors for Honey, Chad stepped in afterwards, glancing at the gym with the indoor basketball court for a moment to see if Ricky was there. Upon realizing that his best friend was not present, he led Honey upstairs where the dance studio overlooked the court and the recording studio sat on its left. Entering the latter, Chad saw Ricky lounging on the couch with one of Sienna's guitars, plucking at strings while Sienna was closer to the control system with Gregg, a friend of Stella's who was almost as good with technology as she was. The guy was more interested in film from what Chadwick had gathered. "Hey, guys." Chad greeted everyone cheerfully and Rick's head shot up before he was quick to get off the couch. He had already sent his text to Isaiah about the jock's plans. "About damn time. Dude, I was bored out of my mind." Ricky complained. After they had dropped Sienna's not-boyfriend off with her taking too damn long to kiss him goodbye, they headed over to her place for Sienna to change. After that, Stella's friend Gregg had started setting up to film Sienna singing a cover to a few songs so that she could post them for the next two weeks to hold some fans over until she got her EP out.

To:
Had 1 date and now u don't kno any1? Evry1's at Sia's, u coming? P.S. She has new games.

"I'm here, aren't I?" Chad shot back and Ricky only grinned, nodding to Honey. He was in a much better disposition than yesterday and felt a bit more...relaxed in the presence of her relationship with Chad. Though he didn't fail to notice the sharp look Chad had given him. "Yeah, yeah, yeah. Hey, Honey." Not really wasting time since his other best friend wasn't really paying him much of any attention, Rick grabbed two of the glasses on the tray Feliciana had brought in a bit earlier, which were cherry coolers. He handed each to the lovebirds before tugging Chad along. "We're gonna leave you ladies," he pointedly ignored Gregg's obvious distaste for that unnecessary insult, "to your work." They'd be back whenever the girls started dancing, if Ricky didn't find it in him to make Chad go up against him in basketball or call Isaiah. Not really about tell his best friend no, Chad kissed Honey's cheek gently before whispering to her, "We'll be back. And Sienna won't bite. She just likes to act hard." He smirked at the last part before releasing her, following Ricky back down the stairs to the game room.

With it just being the two girls and Gregg, who seemed more interested in the audio consoles than either of the singers, Sienna finally looked up in Honey's direction. It took her a moment, but when she did choose to acknowledge Honey, she did it with a small smile. "Don't tell him this, but...I'm glad you chose Chad. I meant it at the game, you know? You guys are kinda cute." Sienna said before taking a pause and correcting herself, "Scratch that. Don't tell anyone I said that." As she repeated constantly, she didn't not like Honey. Ignoring the Aaliyah aspect of their fake beef, she liked Honey for Chad and vice versa, and Stella may or may not have had something to do with that. Running a hand through her silky locks, Sienna nodded to Gregg one more time before including Honey on the conversation. "It's supposed to be a bit of a dance studio session and we're probably just gonna be goofing around, but I wanted to get some covers in and maybe two acoustics of my songs. I told Jas this, but if you've got something you wanna work on, the studio's here." Biting her lip a bit because she thought she forgot something, Sienna shrugged. If she did, she just did. For now, she was just ready to get some singing on.

Stepping into the isolation booth, Sienna stood before microphone and placed the headset over her ears. Nodding to Gregg, the song played and Sienna began to sing. She had decided to do a song by The Weeknd, Beyoncé, and then possibly another, but she wanted to get at least one acoustic version of one of her songs in. Gregg let drones into the booth with her to capture her face in different angles while there was one camera with a stand to capture her the way she was. Just like with dancing, the beat kicked in and the lyrics flowed over her like ribbons of ecstasy, eliciting just a bit more passion from her. She hadn't spent as much time as she would have normally done in the studio since she had returned home and aimed to rectify this. It was almost as if she had even forgotten that Honey was present too.

Honey head was swimming as Chad had lead her back in the house. Part of it was, she was still swimming in that happy haze that he always managed to put her in. When he described them as a ABC family movie she couldn't help but grin into his neck. He had a very valid point. Even though they might not seem compatible they just worked and they made each other happy. She had to admit it felt good knowing she wasn't the only one who felt threatened.

Though a good part of her haze had to do with them having a make out session in she car. She dreamily traced her index finger over her lips. Part of her wondered if they were moving too fast but when it's right it's right and Honey was never one to follow society's rules. Plus when you take into consideration how long they had feelings for each other it's only natural how instantly connected they are. She just hoped that connection didn't fade as time went on. Chad was quickly weaving himself into Honey's life and she couldn't imagine how bad it would hurt it someone she actually cared about hurt her.

Chad always managed to relax her. Even as he wound through Sienna's beautiful maze of a house, he held her hand the whole way. As they stepped into the room Honey felt heart beat a bit faster. Though it turned out she worried for nothing. Ricky seemed to be in much higher spirits and Honey smiled when he greeted her. Comfortable, she thought to herself as Ricky handed her a drink, it felt comfortable. She gave a fake pout as Chad was tugged along. As he kissed her on the cheek she curled into him one more time, practically purring at the sweet gesture. "Come back to me soon," She whispered back. When he whispered an encouraging sentiment about Sienna she nodded and allowed him to release her before heading away with Ricky.

Which brought her to the present. When Sienna smiled at her, Honey couldn't help the small smile that tugged at her lips. "Thanks" she said with a laugh, "I won't tell him that as long as you promise to not tell him he has me wrapped around his finger. How he managed to turn a leopard into a house pet I'll never know. " She smirked to herself, quite pleased with the analogy. She really was like that. Always admired but somewhat from a far. Never really traveling in a consistent group. Yet here she was slowly becoming immersed in a group of friends and purring from the slightest show of affection. "I think I made the right choice too.". She had to admit she was really happy that they're relationship was getting a positive response.

She nodded gratefully when Sienna offered her use of the studio but she was just an observer today. Honey always admired artist who got completely consumed in their music. It was something she tended to do. Whether she was writing or singing. She leaned against one of the couches and sent out a quick text.

To:Stella
Hey we just got at Sienna's where are you guys?

"We should probably start heading out soon. Truthfully, if Sia wanted to, she could just make it a spa day at her place. That spa is so nice." Jasmine gave a simple shrug of her shoulders as Stella finished her glass and slid off the couch. "I'm ready to go when you are." Getting to her feet Jasmine walked over to her bed and stuffed her outfits into her duffel bag. She was beyond ready to get on the road. "What's Izz doing today? Pretty sure Chad and Ricky are probably gonna go play video games or something at Sia's. Or did he have a bit of a nightcap with Angel?" A small smirk spread across her face as her head turned and she looked at Stella who was looking at her with an inquiring look. She giggled when Stella wiggled her brows at the end of her question, with a similar smirk to Jasmine's on her face. "No nightcap surprisingly. He ended up at my place around like two or three in the morning with a dozen double decker donuts from DK Donuts. Apparently the date was great but he didn't close the deal."

Jasmine once again shrugged her shoulders. "My poor baby came over here and just poured out his soul and it was so ... sweet. My little gentlemen." A sudden thought hit her and a smile spread from ear to ear. "Oh my god! Do you think Honey slept with Chad?" On social media there were tons of articles and photos posted of the new couple. While there had been one article that she had seen online of Chad and Honey showing up at BLOK together there where even more of Honey leaving the club alone. If her whole relationship with Justin Beiber had taught her anything it was that the media had a tendency to misconstrue the facts in favor of lies and drama. However, she couldn't deny that Honey had been acting funny last night. Than again come morning there were also several photos circulating the web of Honey and Chad leaving her place in the city together. So she couldn't for sure say what the hell was going on with Chadwick and Catalina but whatever it was it was definitely entertaining to the rest of the world.

"I mean I don't think she'd really give it up on the first date. But then again, I wouldn't be surprised. I mean it is Honey were talking about. Hmm. Angelina Rivera. Self-proclaimed Queen of the Animals not giving it up on a first date and yet our favorite scandalous singer probably did. The irony." Jasmine just laughed to herself as she shook her head. "You Listers are a complicated bunch for sure. Let's get out of here." Jasmine said swinging her duffel bag over her shoulder.

Isaiah rolled his eyes as he chuckled looking at the text message Ricardo had sent him. "You go one night without being seen and people act like you've dropped off the face of the earth." He said aloud to himself with a smile. "Good to see I've been missed." He said proudly as he grabbed the remote and turned off the television. Isaiah had arrive home from Jasmine's place and immediately feed Jake and went to take a shower. After getting out of the shower he had gotten dressed as he knew he would be leaving his place sometime today, although he hadn't planned on leaving so soon. However, in Ricky's text he had mentioned some new games and that was enough for Isaiah to get up and move. He was such a guy in that way.

Before getting up off the couch Angelina had popped her way into his mind. He had called or texted her since he had woken up. She had texted or called either but in his experience most girls waited for the guy to make the first move. He didn't need her doubting herself or assuming that the whole date had been a bust so he sent her a quick good morning text. It wasn't anything big or major but at least she would know that he hadn't forgotten about her. He thought about inviting her over to Sienna place but immediately talked himself out of the idea. Angelina didn't really hang out with his crowd of friends anymore since the whole thing went down with her parents and she became an Animal. If there were really gonna try and do something and start hanging out more than he knew he would have to eventually find a way to help her reintegrate in with the people she had once called friends. But for now he just put that whole idea on the back burner.

Jumping up to his feet he let Jake outside as he didn't want the old lab running a muck in his house while he was away. Jake had eaten less then thirty minutes ago and Isaiah kept a water dish that was also full of water outside so Jake would be good while he was gone. It was a nice and sunny California day and instead of driving one of his luxury cars he opted for his bike. His mother hated the fact that he had one so he didn't ride it often, but today he was taking the bike. Zooming out of his driveway he made the trip to Sienna's place.

The breakfast couldn't be described as anything else than extraordinary. It was so many different gourmet dishes, most of which Erik couldn't even pronounce, that the poor viking had no idea what he should choose to eat. So when he settled for a couple of slices of home-made bread with smoked salmon and butter Erik almost felt like he proved that he didn't really come from the same wealth as Sienna and her friends. But nobody made a comment about it and as soon as Erik had finished his bread they were stuffed into what Erik presumed to be Sienna's car. Moments after that they were off.

There wasn't really much talk in the car. They just listened to some overplayed songs on the radio until Sienna and Ricardo dropped him of in front of the Smith' residence. Luckily Sienna followed him out of the car, and while they still didn't say much he did get a grade-A goodbye kiss. When they left Erik couldn't do anything to wipe a stupid grin of his face so when he entered his home-away-from-home a bunch of questions about why he hadn't come home yesterday and stuff like that.

Without any interest in answering those questions Erik just cam up with a quick excuse about a 'lan-night' that had lasted longer than expected and he had decided to sleep over, and then headed up to his room for a shower, shave, and change of clothes, but he ended up taking a nap instead.

Stella was absolutely surprised when Jasmine told her about Izzy not closing the deal with Angelina. To put it plainly, Angelina was a slut. Stella wasn't judging her or anything. The senior liked having fun and if Stella judged her, she would have to judge Honey, Ricky, and Sienna. And if she couldn't find it in herself to judge her friends, she obviously couldn't judge this girl she was not friends with. But she was surprised nonetheless. She cooed at Jas saying that Izzy poured out his heart. "Aww, the poor baby!"

It was only a second later when Jas brought up the possibility of Honey and Chad having slept together. And with the immediacy of Honey's text, which stated that everything had been "taken care of" last night, Stella couldn't help but consider the same thing. She bounced on her toes excitedly and nodded quickly despite Jasmine's explanation on why she thought it could be a possibility. "Ooooh, I'm gonna ask!" Stella wasn't afraid of asking questions like these. She might constantly go on and on about Sienna polluting her virgin ears, but it didn't stop her from knowing and Honey didn't always hesitate in sharing certain facts. And Chad was involved and Stella had been their biggest shipper for some time now. She deserved to know updates! Upon Jas' looking ready to leave, Stella preened dramatically at the comment about Listers. "How else are we supposed to keep you all entertained?" She retorted with a wink and flipped her ponytail, opting to grab the tray the cookies and flutes were on in favor of giving them to Guadalupe on the way out. While she knew the older maid could come and fetch the items, she was used to not having staff members in their home unless they were at the larger estate.

Once the girls were downstairs, Guadalupe was already about the climb them and Stella beamed down at her. "Usted no tiene que venir de arriba. Yo no quiero molestarte con todo eso." She said and Guadalupe only smiled softly and took the tray carefully from the Prep. "Gracias, Stella. ¿Eres dos damas de salir ahora?" Guadalupe asked, gesturing to both Jasmine and Stella. The latter nodded. "Sí, I'll try to get her in before curfew," Stella told her with a little playful wink, linking arms with Jasmine and leading the blonde out of the large house. Once outside where Stella left her car, she glanced back at her best friend. "Feel like driving or do you wanna ride with me?"

While the guys were heavily immersed into their little competition downstairs, the girls were still in Sienna's recording studio. Once Sienna was done with her covers, she stepped out of the isolation booth and exhaled loosely, unscrewing the cap off of the water bottle she had with her and taking a few sips as Gregg looked through the material on his laptop. "Well? She pressed to the tech wizard and he grumbled something unintelligible, furiously typing on his keyboard. Rolling her eyes because this was something Stella would do too if she was really concentrated on something, Sienna glanced back at Honey. "What did you think? I kinda could use some advice considering you have more experience with the genre."

The next day had came and Tyler was up before Taylor, making a small breakfast which consisted of their favorites. The aroma of bacon, eggs, pancakes and freshly squeezed orange juice filled the home, which had awakened Taylor. He came down the stairs and turned towards the kitchen, turning his head away from his brother. "Whoa! Don't need to see that." Taylor commented towards Tyler, who was dressed in nothing but a green pair of boxer briefs. Tyler turned his head towards Taylor with a smirk as he shook his head. "You're one to talk. I suddenly remember when someone stripped in Panama at our beach house." Taylor chuckled then look up in the air, muttering. "Good times, Good times." Tyler rolled his eyes and sat a plate down in front of Taylor.

Tyler then took a seat himself and picked up a piece of bacon and took a small bite into it. "So, what is on our schedule today?" Taylor shrugged his shoulders while putting a fork full of eggs into his mouth. Tyler sighed while lowering his head and playing around with his food. Taylor knew what that look meant as he sighed as well. "Maybe we could go out to the beach or something." Taylor said with the nod of his head and Tyler smiled. "I wonder what those people we met at the club last night are doing." Taylor shrugged his shoulders, again. "Don't know but seemingly we we're important enough to be invited." Tyler looked at Taylor with an unusual expression. "No, if someone had gotten a number last night we wouldn't be in this predicament." Tyler responded then chuckled. "You're one to talk. What about your little French friend?" Taylor countered as Tyler blushed a little bit.

Taylor shook his head while finishing his plate of breakfast up and walking over to the sink to rinse it off. Tyler eventually did the same as they both stood at the sink. "It's nice that we both met people but bad that neither one of us got a number." Tyler said as Taylor lowered his head with a chuckle then reached over and ruffled his brother's hair. "It's okay, bro. As long as we have each other, we don't need no one else." That caused Tyler to smile as Taylor walked off.

They both had showered and put on a fresh pair of clothing. Tyler had dressed himself in a gray muscle t-shirt with a pair of beach shorts on, as well. Taylor came down the stairs and stared at Tyler then himself. They were wearing the exact same thing and Tyler raised a brow. "I was wearing it first so I am not changing." Taylor ran back up the stairs and put on a white muscle t-shirt then came back down the stairs. "Perfect. Ready to go?" Tyler asked while standing up and eyed his brother. "Yeah." Was Taylor's simple answer. "Wait, how did you know that Edgar was French?" Tyler asked as they headed out of their house. "Ah, I finally have a name." Taylor said with a light chuckle.

Tyler blushed again then chuckled along with his brother while getting into his Mustang. Taylor smirked and ran over to get in his brother's car, jumping in the passenger seat. "You like this Edgar, huh?" Taylor asked as Tyler tried to push him out of the car. "I am not getting out of this car until I get an answer." Taylor said while buckling in his seat belt causing Tyler to roll his eyes and buckled up his seat belt as well. "What about your little girlfriend who you talked about?" Tyler countered towards Taylor, who glared at him. "Her name is Jasmine." Taylor said a little defensively as Tyler bit his bottom lip and they headed to the beach, which was filled up with people.

They both got out of the car as stretched then proceeded their trek onto the beach. They were the main attraction there, getting stares from girls and guys alike. They were a true spectacle as a guy came up to Tyler and asked for his number. Taylor stepped in front of his brother. "Back off! He's interested in someone else." Tyler raised a brow then nodded his head behind his brother, causing the random guy to step off. Tyler looked over at Taylor. "I don't need your help you know." Taylor smiled. "Sorry, older brother came out of me there." Tyler rolled his eyes as they continued walking along the shoreline, the water washing up over their feet.
