[Kalam [center [size17 [i The summer after their senior year of high school, a group of rebellious teens spend their final days together before they go their separate ways.

For a group of friends that have always been by each others sides, letting each other go and facing the world can have both positive and negative effects. This summer is to fully embrace each other and cling to the memory of the last of their reckless years.

They will go through obstacles that teach them independence, strength, and love. And hopefully let them live the best summer yet.

Through the ups and downs these friends are jumping together.]]]]

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/JZYDg8U.png]] [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Quicksand] [Quicksand Bex hooked her arm around Sawyers waist as the group exited the diner. Her shoulders relaxed and she released a sigh. She was happy she was finally done with work. The day had drug on and on. More so than normal. Some days go by so fast and others don't. Today she just felt like everything had gone wrong. She spilled a drink all over herself, forgot orders, pissed off coworkers. It just kept adding and adding up. Lucky for her she was off tomorrow. And she couldn't wait to sun bathe and spend time with her friends. And hopefully plan a trip to Slyvia's lake house.

The auburn-haired girl slid into the passengers seat of Sawyer's car. She turned to him as soon as both doors were closed. [b [#F58456 "What the hell is up with everyone?"]]

[b [#0C4305 "I honestly couldn't tell you."]] he replied as he started the car and started to pull out. Bex cocked her head to the side as if to saw really? Saw's eyes rolled and shook his head. [b [#0C4305 "I just know that Brody and Izzy aren't on good terms. Sly was acting a bit weird and she has that bruise on her face. And Dylan is being an ass as usual."]]

Bexley wasn't exactly happy with the answer. She didn't know anything about Izzy and Brody fighting but it was highly unusual. They were one of the closer friends in the group. And Sly having a bruise was not a good sign, she'd have to talk to her at the pool house. It angered Bex to know end that her friends were unhappy or hurt. She wished she could fix all their problems.

Before she knew it Sawyer was parked in the driveway to her house. She bit her lip, chewing on a piece of dry skin before letting a huff of air escape her lips. She opened the door and got out and walked around the car to meet Sawyer. They walked down the side of the house and around the backyard to the pool house. She unlocked the door and then entered, flipping the light switch on. The pool lite up and revealed a decent sized pool in the middle, a couch and some chairs on the back wall, a bar to the left and a single bathroom off the right wall.

[b [#0C4305 "I forgot my cigs.."]] Sawyer spoke before turning around and assumingly heading to the car. Which gave Bex to pick up the scattered clothes and change into her bathing suit.

[center [pic https://i.imgur.com/cpRVMbL.jpg]]

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/KMn6iuo.jpg]] The drive to Bex's house felt like the longest ride of his life. He was just itching to tell her about his plans for New York. Yet he held back because he wanted to convince her to not just come but to love him. How was he supposed to do that in a five minute car ride?

Sawyer was guarded guy. He didn't let just anyone in. If he told someone something about his life he usually regretted it later. Feeling an anger or disgust for himself. That's who he was. And with Bexley it was different. He felt as though he could tell her anything in the world and he'd feel fine. But thinking of something to say that would convey his love, his gratitude? It felt impossible. And it was just picking away at him. And eventually he was going to burst if it didn't come out.

The two walked back to the pool house together before anyone else arrived. Once inside he took in the clothes and cups that were littered on the floor. That wasn't normal. None on them had been over recently and they always helped pick up after parties. Was Bex living in the pool house? Sawyer quickly remembered that he forgot his cigarettes in his car and decided to go get them in that moment.

The lanky man walked out of the pool house and towards his car. Everyone was there talking and walking towards the backyard. He reached his car and stuck his torso through the opened drivers window and reached into the cup holder, expecting his hand to hit the small box. When it didn't he got a bit frustrated, opened his door and plopped down in the seat. He dug through his glove box and the center console but came up empty handed. [b [#0C4305 What the fuck?!"]] he shouted as he got out of his car and slammed the door. He could have sworn they were in there.

Mad, Sawyer stalked off back to the pool where everyone else was probably starting in on the drinks. Before he made it to the door of the pool house he spotting Ginger just sitting in the grass. Why was she out here instead of celebrating? He sat down next to her nudging her shoulder with his.

[b [#0C4305 "Taking in the fact that you are going to be like a thousand miles away from everyone after this summer?"]] he was sort of joking but in reality it scared him too. Saw didn't know if he could even make new friends. So leaving all of this assholes was going to be extremely hard.

The male looked down at the girl, she looked broken somehow. The light above them cast a shadow on her cheeks from her full eyelashes, her knees were pulled to her chest and head resting on them. Maybe she wanted to be alone but if he knew Ging at all she was probably worried about Yale.

[b [#0C4305 "If it makes you feel better, I got into NYU. That's only seventy-nine miles away."]] He shrugged and stood up. [b [#0C4305 "I haven't told anyone so you better not either."]] Saw turned from the girl and entered the pool house ready for a wild night.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex A small slow smile spread over his lips as he watched Slyvia. He could tell she was having a hard time, but he honestly didn't care. His plan had worked. He then looked over at Ginger and grinned even more. [#01A9DB "That's great Ginger! You'll do amazing out there"] he said as he leaned back into his chair. He looked around at the group, and he couldn't help but wonder what he'd done to end up with them. They were all amazing in their own way's, and he could tell some of them were having issues at the moment.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex When Bex came over with their food and drinks, he thanked her. He ate slowly letting himself go into his own shell. It would be cool to leave this shitty town for a couple of weeks. [#01A9DB "What if we rented out a cabin on the lake? Or maybe in the woods? Would ya'll prefer swimming over hiking?"] he asked. He himself loved swimming, and wouldn't mind the whole cabin on the lake idea. He finished his food, and then pushed his plate away. Pretty soon it was time to go, and he was more than ready.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He stood and walked out of the building, and headed for his car. He didn't know if anyone would even bother riding with him, and he didn't mind that in the least. When everyone was with their rides, was when it was time to head out. He pulled away from the curb and rolled his window's down, letting in the nice weather. He sighed a bit and pulled up to the curb. He shut the car off, and climbed out. He then walked over and draped an arm around Izzy. [#01A9DB "So what's going on with you and Brody? I can tell you are pissed with him"]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He really wanted to know, so that's why he was prying. He hated when his friends were arguing, and he wondered if the woman would even open up to him about it. He then opened the pool house door, and let her in before him. He then moved over to the couch, plopped down and kicked his feet up. [#01A9DB "Where's the booze? I wanna get smashed"] he said with a smirk at the other's.]

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/361jpba.jpg]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex The woman lowered her eyes and a slight blush came to her cheeks. She couldn't help but smile at the complement's she'd gotten. [#FFDAB9 "Thanks you guys. I honestly don't know what I would do without you all"] she said as she looked up. She thanked Bex for the food and she picked at it slightly. She sighed a bit as she tried to keep up with everyone talking. Pretty soon they were all leaving. She helped chip in for the tip, and then she slid her shoes back on and stood. The pool house sound wonderful.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [#FFDAB9 "I think the lake idea would be better. We could get the tan's on, and enjoy some swimming. Maybe skinny dipping?"] she asked with a small laugh. The feeling she had with them all, was amazing. She didn't feel like she could have found a better group of friends. She walked out and slid into Dylan's car, before he pulled away. She watched the trees zipping by, and pretty soon they were at Bex's place. It didn't take the male long before he was out, and talking to Izzy. She stopped and waiting for Brody to get out, before she walked over and slid her arm around his waist.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [#FFDAB9 "So, are you really proud of me?"] she asked lightly. Sometimes she needed to be told more than once, that someone was proud of her. She felt like she failed so much, and she even felt like she failed her friends in more way's than one. Her heart sunk at the thought of leaving at the end of the summer. She couldn't think about that right now though, she was with the people she adored the most, and she had to enjoy it for the time being.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex She dropped her arm from the male's waist and shooed him inside. She wanted a couple of minutes by herself. She lowered herself into the grass, and pulled her knees to her chest. She rested her chin on her knees, and looked out at the backyard. This was going to be a long night. She wanted to go home, and she wanted to forget about what's been going on. She sighed lightly and stayed where she was for a while longer.]

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/vk8Ft9o.png]] [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Quicksand] [Quicksand Brody stayed pretty quiet after Izzy snapped at him. It just made him feel horrible and he really didn't want to be there any longer. He needed Izzy to get over this and just talk to him again. Like it used to be. Like they were friends. This whole situation made everything so awkward. He was positive she hadn't told anyone else about it because no one had said anything to him. So he was walking on eggshells with the whole group at this point. If Izzy blew up he wouldn't be shocked at the rest of his friends doing the same.

The young man listened at the conversations going on between his friends. He sipped on his drink, ate his cheeseburger, all in silence. He congratulated Ginger as she talked about Yale. That was a big deal and he was so proud of her. She deserved something good.

Finally it was time to go. Brody scooted away from the table and followed everyone out. He noticed Izzy slagging along texting on her phone. Now was his chance. He pulled her by the arm.

[b [#3E82C2 "You want a ride? To Bex's I mean.."]]

[b [#FF9ED3 "No."]] Brody sighed running a head through his hair.

[b [#3E82C2 "C'mon Iz, can we just get over this? You are making everything so awkward."]]

[b [#FF9ED3 "I am? Open up those eyes Brody. Realize that what you are doing is not okay."]] she pulled her arm away. [b [#FF9ED3 "I've got to find a ride, otherwise I'm walking."]]

Brody watched as Izzy stormed off. He huffed to himself before walking in the same direction. The male caught up with Dylan and Ginger, a smile plastered on his face. [b [#3E82C2 "You guys can ride with me."]] he said as he unlocked his doors and slid into the drivers seat. He just had to get through the night without Izzy completely blowing up at him and telling all of his friends that he was selling more than just weed and pills.

[center [pic https://i.imgur.com/cpRVMbL.jpg]]

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/oW7WQIM.jpg]] Izzy desperately awaited a reply from Slyvia. She couldn't believe Dylan. Of course she'd probably go off on him for being a dick but then that'd put Sly on blast and she didn't want that. As soon as her phone buzzed she whipped it out.

It was a confusing situation Sly and Dylan. Honestly she didn't know how to handle this one. She had never experienced anything close to a relationship, let alone sex. She was no expert on love, or what to do when things went wrong. Izzy knew that her friends probably weren't in love, that was clear from just a one night stand, so why Dylan felt the need to call Sly out really confused her.

As Izzy thought about how to reply to her friend it was time to go. She had been lost in her thoughts and barely touched her salad. As she began walking out her phone buzzed again.

[center [i [#FF9ED3 I think you should talk to him. Find out whats up with him. It doesn't seem right for him to try and put you on blast...Maybe he feels weird about it? IDK.]]]

As she hit send her arm was pulled and standing in front of her was Brody. She was so tired of fighting with him. But she wasn't going to stand by and let something terrible happen to him. If he wasn't going to listen to her than she couldn't be apart of his life. Maybe he'd listen to all of his friends. She was sure that the others would feel the same as she did...right?

Izzy walked away from Brody, nearly defeated. She saw Gale's car and opened the back door and slid in without a word. She caught Gale's eye in the rear view mirror and gave a small side smile before turning to look out the window.

As the car pulled into Bex's driveway the curvy girl really wished the night was over already. But she knew if she ditched now Sly would be alone with Dylan who was an ass. Plus Izzy would probably have no self control at her house. She'd probably eat all the chocolate in the house. So instead she stepped out of the car and followed the gang around the back and into the pool house.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex Gale was honestly sickened by what the other male had asked. Why the hell would he care about if anyone slept with someone? It wasn't like he wasn't getting any action anyway. He was the asshole of the group, and he felt Slyvia stiffen beside him. Something was up, and he wanted to know. He knew to keep his mouth shut though. When Bex came back with their drinks, he thanked her and took a sip. He sighed looking around at everyone. They all seemed so uptight, and worried about something. He was curious, and couldn't help but wonder.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [#BF283C "Congrats Ginger, that's wonderful news"] he said. He could tell the woman was on the spot, and she had done it herself. He looked around at everyone else, and he couldn't help but wonder where everyone else was going. He himself, didn't get into any of the college's he applied for. Maybe it was a good thing. He did have a good saving's account he was going to dip into anyway, might as well do something he loved. When Bex clocked out, and said they all should head out he was ready to go.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He stood and offered his hand out to Slyvia. [#BF283C "I see we all either got rides, or walked. My car if open for anyone that want's a ride"] he said. He watched as Slyvia pulled her phone out, and started typing away. She was acting really weird all of a sudden, and he didn't like it. He sighed lightly and rubbed the back of his head. He was one of the first ones to leave. He walked out to his car, slid inside and started it up. He waited for at least five minutes, before Slyvia slid into the car as well.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He decided to wait a moment longer, just in case someone else joined them. He sighed lightly and looked at the black haired woman beside him. He was about to say something, when the back door opened and slammed shut. He looked into the rear view mirror and smirked a bit. He then put the car into gear and pulled out of the parking spot. He pulled into traffic and stopped at a red light. [#BF283C "This is going to be an interesting day, I can feel it"] he said. Slyvia just nodded her head, and looked out the window. The silence washed over the three, and he sighed a bit.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex Slyvia's phone went off, and she slid it out of her pocket. She read the messaged and replied back to Izzy. [#D8BFD8 [i I seriously don't know why the fuck he's doing this to me. He's such an asshole. It's like he wants to put me on blast or something. Did I do something wrong? Or was it because I left in the dead of night? Izzy... I don't know what to do...]] She hit send and leaned back into her chair. She bit the inside of her cheek lightly looking around at the other's. She was happy for Ginger, and she smiled warmly.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex She was honestly fighting with herself, and her head snapped up at the mention of a trip. [#D8BFD8 "Yes! I think we should too. Maybe we could head to my parents lake house? No cell phones, no real life problems to tie us down, I think my parents would be glad the house is being used this summer"] she said lightly. She wasn't meaning to boast about it, but she did like the idea. She wanted to get away from the everyday life, and just enjoy her last summer with the other's.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex Her eyes snapped towards Dylan, and she narrowed them. She felt Gale pull her to her feet when Bex said it was time to leave. She downed her drink as fast as she could, and then stood around the table for a moment longer. She pulled her phone back out and messaged Izzy again. [#D8BFD8 [i Do you think I should talk to Dylan about this? Or should I let it slide? It's like he wants to get a rise out of me.]] She hit send again, and slid her phone into her back pocket. She sighed a bit and slipped away from her chair.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex She slowly made her way out of the building, and stood in the sunshine for a moment. She took a breath and spoke softly. [#D8BFD8 "You got this.."] she muttered lightly. She moved towards Gale's car and slid inside. She looked out the window, not wanting to say anything. She could tell he was about to say something, when the car door opened and closed. She kept her mouth shut, and her eyes turned out the window. A moment later they started moving, and she couldn't be happier at the moment.]

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/JZYDg8U.png]] [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Quicksand] [Quicksand Bexley walked back into the kitchen where she picked up cups and began to fill them with everyone's drink order. She looked back at Rick who was cooking away. You could tell he was ready to go home. They both got off at the same time and Chase, the night chef, would come in and take over for Rick.

[b [#F58456 "Hey Rick, just so you know a lot of cheese burgers are probably going to be ordered within the next hour or so."]] she laughed as Rick slumped his shoulders. [b [#F58456 "I'm so sorry!! But on the bright side Chase should be here soon. And then we can both throw the towel in."]]

She put all seven drinks on a tray and picked it up. For most people carrying seven drinks seemed like a lot. But for her and any other waitress it was nearly an everyday occurrence. Bex walked back out on the floor and went back to the table her friends were sitting at. As she walked up there seemed to be some tension. Almost as if everyone was avoiding something. Dylan spoke about a trip and Bexley's heart nearly jumped from her chest.

[b [#F58456 "Holy shit Dylan lets do it."]] she said as she pulled a chair from the empty table next to theirs. [b [#F58456 "I'm not kidding. You guys know I've been saving my money from working here. For this exact reason. We need this. We need something that is just between all of us. Because even if we all separate after this year we can remember this summer as one of the best."]] she spoke passionately before picking up Dylan's water and taking a drink. She wanted this. She wanted it more than anything.

[center [pic https://i.imgur.com/cpRVMbL.jpg]]

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/KMn6iuo.jpg]] Sawyer looked between Izzy and Brody as if he didn't know them. When did Izzy ever fight with anyone in the group? And Brody? He was literally nothing short of a joking clown. A child clown at that. What was their problem? And both Sly and
Ginger were being so quiet. It just felt like something was really off.

Bexley set his drink down and he thanked her. She was perfect. And as she spoke about traveling with the gang her tired eyes lit up. She was talking about something that she was so passionate about and every inch of her body said just that. The way her smiled reached all the way to her eyes, her body leaning forward, her hands flat on the table in front of her. She was beautiful.

Sawyer was quickly brought out of his trance when Dylan addressed him. He rolled his eyes.

[b [#0C4305 "This conversation is dead. Let's move on to something that won't bore me."]] he grumbled. Of course he hadn't slept with anyone in the group. Even if he wanted to.

Thankfully Ginger spoke about getting into Yale. He mumbled a congrats but kept mostly quiet as Izzy nearly screamed in excitement. He'd
contribute in the excitement but he would feel obligated to also share he got into NYU. Sawyer didn't want to tell anyone yet. Not until he told Bex and convinced her to move with him. He wanted to tell her everything he had been thinking about her. He needed to find a way to confess his love to her that would also hopefully make her do the same.

Roughly an hour passed as the group ate their food and caught up. Sawyer offered to pay for everyone's meal but Bexley laughed it off, helped clear the table with a waitress he didn't know. He threw down a five as Bexley came back, hair down and apron off.

[b [#F58456 "Let's go back to my place. We can chill in the pool house."]] Bex said to the group with a wink. Which meant there would be some sort of booze because the girl loved to drink.

[b [#0C4305 "Yeah I'm down. Lets go. I'll give you a ride."]]

His eyes did more towards Slyvia though, and a slow smirk passed over his lips. He had asked the question to see her reaction the most. They had been drunk when it happened, and he didn't regret it at all. He had gotten her drunk for that reason. When he looked around at the other's, he listened to each of their replies. When Bex came back with their drinks he wondered when she would be done. Seeing everyone made him feel better though. He missed them.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He leaned back in his chair and crossed his arms over his chest. [#01A9DB "Why don't we all do something fun? Leave the county, or the state. Make sure this is the best summer of our lives, before we all go different ways. It'll be fun"] he threw the idea out there. He didn't know if anyone would agree to it, but it was an idea at least. When Bex placed his drink down, he thanked her and took a sip of the water. He placed it back down on the table and looked around at the other's.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex The looks on their faces, he could tell each of them had been hiding something. They weren't supposed to hide anything from each other, but then again he was hiding something as well. So was Slyvia. He could tell he hit a nerve, but then he turned to Sawyer. [#01A9DB "So have you slept with anyone in the group? Or anyone at all?"] He really wanted to know this. He was prying, and he knew it. Then again that's how he was. He liked being in other's business, it seemed to please him to cause shit to happen.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He leaned back and watched everyone. This time he kept his mouth shut. He didn't want to cause too much shit, but he did want to hear what everyone was planning on doing. [#01A9DB "Honestly I don't know what I'm doing after this summer. Might be working at my dad's business"] he said lightly before going silent again. He really needed to learn to keep his mouth shut, and that's one of the bad things about him. He couldn't. This time though, he was trying really hard to do just that.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex Ginger couldn't believe that Dylan had asked if anyone had slept with anyone in the group. She shook her head lightly [#FFDAB9 "For the record, I haven't. I have been talking to someone online though. He did come out last week to see me"] she said with a small shrug. It had been fun, but she didn't like him like she thought she did. They did end up in bed together, and that had been okay. She wasn't one to really do that kind of thing, but she had been in the moment. She blushed slightly at the thought of it.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex She wasn't one to even talk about her personal life anyway, so she was kind of hating herself for even talking about it. She thanked Bex for the drink, and she looked around at the other's. She hadn't really though about anything after the summer. When Bex mentioned college, and Izzy was the only one who answered, she thought it would be a good time to tell them. When else was she going to tell them anyway?She bit her lip and spoke again. [#FFDAB9 "I applied for Yale, and I got in"] she blurted out.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex She didn't know if anyone heard, but at least she had said something about it. She started playing with her fingers wishing she was anywhere but here right now. She wanted to be out drawing, or doing something. Instead she was inside a building which felt stuffy. She looked out the window and let the chatter around her wash over her. She wasn't really paying much attention anymore. She would let them talk, and banter about whatever they wanted. She was just glad she had gotten her news out of the way, even if she has to say it again she would.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex For the time being, she watched the people outside walking back and forth. Couples stopping and getting kisses from one another. Children running down the street, and teenagers on skateboards, or roller skates. She bit her lip a bit wishing she was out there sketching everyone around her.]

Even if some of them weren't speaking to him. Everyone was looking good, yet distracted. It seemed that everyone had something on their mind. And of course Dylan had to break out the ridiculous questions as soon as he sat down. Sawyer seemed really offended that there could possibly be secrets within the group.

[#3E82C2 "I want that asshole, Gale."] he winked at the male. [#3E82C2 "All seriousness aside I'm open for business if anyone wants to take a ride."]

Of course he thought his friends were the most beautiful people. And he'd be lucky enough to have any one of them, but something inside him told him to never do that again. He knew from Bex that what he truly needed was friendship. And if that ever got out to the group Sawyer would probably kick his ass and it would ruin everything. So what was the purpose of ever trying something like that again? He couldn't risk losing any more friends. Hell he needed to mend the ones that were slowly tearing away.

[#3E82C2 "Izzy, you wanna give it a go?"] he joked with a laugh. The look on her face wished he hadn't. Brody was never good when it came to anything that needed emotion. He was always joking which usually made things worse.

[#FF9ED3 "I'd rather fuck a chainsaw."]

Brody felt like the world went silent. The venom in her voice was in his blood and fast tracking to his heart. God, she was really not happy with him. What he did with his life was his own damn business. Why she was so upset didn't make sense to him. He was nothing like her shitty ass father. And just as he was going to probably make an ass out of himself did Bexley arrive.

[center [pic https://i.imgur.com/cpRVMbL.jpg]]

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/oW7WQIM.jpg]] Izzy was fuming. She just wanted to curl up in a ball in her room, down a gallon of ice cream and never come out again. Why did Brody have to be a complete asshat. She had a great reason for being mad at him and yet he chose to the ignore that. He was going to ruin his life, just like her father did. She wanted to prevent that happening to one of her best friends. And if he couldn't see that fuck him. Izzy took a deep breath to compose herself. After she joked around with Bex she asked for just an ice water.

She drew back into herself ready to go. She loved her friends to death, but at the moment she'd rather be alone. As she sat there she quickly came to the realization of what the question was that Dylan asked. Her eyes snapped over at Slyvia before her fingers instantly started typing away on her phone.

[center [i [#FF9ED3 What the hell V? Did I miss the memo to tell everyone this?"]]]

Luckily Gale switched topics which was a relief. But the question was just as hard. What had she been up to? Starving herself, exercising till she nearly passes out, and avoiding Brody. The last two weeks have been pretty busy.

[#FF9ED3 "I've just been trying to figure out what I'm going to do after this summer. Because I have no idea."]

[#F58456 "What about college? I know you got accepted into a couple."] Bexley said as she began handing out all the drinks.

[#FF9ED3 "I don't really know about college...."] she trailed off thinking. All of this was true because she really didn't know what to do with her life. She was just stuck in life. [#FF9ED3 "Anyways, what about you guys?"]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex Gale watched as the other's finally arrived, and he could tell that Ginger wasn't okay. What was with everyone and being off. When Dylan brought up the question about anyone hooking up with anyone, he smirked a bit. He wanted to hook up with a couple of people, but he wouldn't be able too. Why should he? He wasn't that good of a person, and none of the women really looked at him that way either. He did have feelings for Izzy though, but what was he supposed to do? Tell her? Ruin their friendship? He sighed a bit and shook his head.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex [#BF283C "Nothing here with me. I mean, everyone's beautiful but who would want this asshole anyway?"] he asked with a laugh. In a way he was being serious, but at the same time he wasn't. He didn't mind not sleeping around, but he did want to get laid. He leaned back and when Bex walked over with her pad in hand he smirked towards her. [#BF283C "Of course we are early, it's how we roll Lex"] he said with a small laugh. He then hurried and put his order in for a coke.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He looked around at the other's, and wondered what they had been up to this last week. [#BF283C "So what has everyone been up too? Don't try and bullshit your way through the answer's either. I think we know each other well to tell when someone it lying"] he said as he leaned back and put his arm behind Slyvia's back. He felt the woman shaking, and it worried him. He looked towards her, and kissed the side of her head lightly before looking around at the others. His small broken family, the people he cared about the most.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He felt Sly lean against him and he laid his head against hers. [#BF283C "You and I will talk later"] he said softly, so only she could hear him. When he felt her nod he let his eyes wander to Izzy. He sighed a bit and let himself relax. He wasn't home, he was around people he cared about, and he could be himself. He didn't have to hide, but he felt like he had too. He wasn't about to do that though. He waited for the other's to speak, and let the small silence wash over him for the time being.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex The chatter of everyone around her, seemed to calm her nerves a little bit. She wasn't really going to open her mouth at the moment. She didn't have too. She knew the other's could tell she wasn't herself. She was more bubbly, always talking about something, or trying to talk about anything. She felt like she was having a war with herself. As Dylan voiced his question, she lowered her eyes and knew he wanted someone to say something about it. She knew that the male wanted to put her on blast, but why? They had hooked up once, but they had been drunk.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex It's been about a month since they hooked up, and she had told Izzy about it. She sighed lightly when she felt Gale kiss the side of her head. He was like a brother to her, and she couldn't ever see herself hooking up with him in that way. She could pretty much hook up with everyone else, but not Gale. When he said they would talk later, she nodded a bit. What else was she supposed to do. She started chewing on her lip lightly as Bex wandered over, and started talking.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex She looked up and nodded towards her. [#D8BFD8 "I'll take a Sprite please"] she said lightly. Those were the only words that left her mouth. She then leaned against Gale, and his head was against her's again. As he asked his own question and spoke, she bit the inside of her cheek and kept quiet. She looked around at the other's, and wondered how their weeks had gone. Her's wasn't the best, and she could tell Ginger's had been the same pretty much. She sighed lightly as she picked at her nails under the table, listening to everyone else around her.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex She knew she had to relax, and she wouldn't speak up till it was her turn. Maybe she should speak up first, but she didn't even know where to start. It was better that she kept her mouth shut right now. She knew if she said anything, she would break down. She didn't want that happening while being in public. Maybe if they were somewhere else she would. For the time being, she kept to herself.]

So he walked to the back of the diner and found a corner table. It was secluded and perfect. And sure enough as his phone was blowing up did all of his friends pour in. First came Gale and Slyvia. [b [#0C4305 "Yeah man. Whats been up?"]] he replied to the male, eyeing Sly. Something was up with her. Just before he could ask Brody came strolling in and nearly knocked him out of his seat with his "hug."

[b [#0C4305 "Not necessary Brody. It's been a week."]] he grumbled with the embrace. Sure he missed his friends, but he wasn't about to tell them that.

Across the diner he spotted Bexley taking an order at another table. God damn was she beautiful. He watched as she smiled at the older couple, writing whatever it was that they were ordering. She didn't notice them as she walked into the kitchen. Sawyer snapped back to the table as Izzy sat down. He noticed Brody had gone quiet which was unusual. What had happened within the last two weeks?

Sure enough the last two of the group, Dylan and Ginger, arrived. And the question Dylan proposed was a shock to Sawyer. Had his friends hooked up with each other? Why hadn't he known this? Had Bex? [b [#0C4305 "I would love to know."]] he replied to his question.

[b "Hi, my names Cy--"]

[b [#0C4305 "We want Bexley."]]

[#3E82C2 "So sorry Ma'am. What my rude friend is saying is that Bex is our friend and she was expecting us."] Brody chimed in. The waitress ran off as Brody scolded Sawyer.

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/JZYDg8U.png]] [b [#F58456 "Alrighty, I'll have that right out."]] she smiled at the older couple, who took about ten years to order. They were regulars and always took at least twenty minutes to look at the menu even though they get the same thing every time. Bex rushed to the back to put the order in right away because they took about ten years to eat their food as well.

She was so ready to be done with work. She was tired and her feet hurt. Most of all she was starving and really just wanted to see her friends. Bexley still had thirty minutes left in her shift and she was ready to die. She walked over to the soda machine and filled her glass with root beer. Before taking a sip she noticed Cyndi walking up to her clearly aggravated.

[b [#F58456 "Is Chad at it again? I swear we can both take him."]] she joked. Cyndi rolled her eyes, unimpressed.

[b "You have friends at table nine that need attending. So i'll just switch you tables I guess."] she said in a rush before walking off without giving Bex a chance to reply.

Great, just what she needed. A coworker who hated her. One less coworker to help play defense against Chad. Bex set down her drink, picked up her note pad and headed onto floor. She instantly saw her friends gathered around the table in the back corner. How long had they been there? They were early.

[b [#F58456 "You guys are early. I'm not even off yet."]] she shook her head with a smile.

[#FF9ED3 "Just get Chad to let you off early. I'll even ask nicely."] Izzy gave a wink making Bex act like she was sticking a finger down her throat.

He slowly lowered himself back to the ground and laid on his stomach trying to catch his breath. His head was spinning, but he didn't care. It was a good workout, and now he needed to shower. His roommate Grace was sitting on the couch her nose in a book, and that didn't bother him at all. He stood and walked into the bathroom gently nudging her book to the floor at the same time. She let out a low growl, and flipped him off before picking the book up once more.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He couldn't help but laugh at the woman. She always had her nose in a book, and she never left the apartment unless it was to see her girlfriend.

His trainer was getting on him about the tournament that was coming up and pushing his training even harder. He sighed lightly as he stripped out of his sweats and climbed into the shower. He started the water, and stood there sighing a little bit.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He hurried and showered, because he knew Grace would want to come in.

He grabbed his phone off the charger, and read the messages. [#01A9DB [i I'm heading over right now. Just got done working out. See ya'll soon.]] He hit send and then dried off. It was hard not seeing the gang, but it would be good to see them.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He changed into a pair of jeans, and a t-shirt and then slid his socks and shoes on. He then walked out of the apartment, keys, phone, and wallet in hand. He knew Grace would be curled up again on the couch, or getting ready to see her girlfriend. He didn't live that far from Klives, so the walk would do him good. He spotted Izzy a couple yards ahead, and then she was in the diner. He wasn't that far behind when he walked up to the others. [#01A9DB "I see Ginger's not here yet"] he said with a laugh.]

She felt like she wasn't gaining any ground, and it broke her heart.]

She shook her head lightly as she pushed herself off the bed, and moved to her desk. Her makeup was spread out everywhere, and she picked up a brush and started applying makeup. She might as well go out, and just distract herself. Maybe the other's would be down to do something. Just as the thought crossed her mind, her phone went off.

She walked out of the room, and headed towards the front door. [b "Where do you think you are going?"] her father called out. She stopped and looked towards him, anger and pain filling her eyes.

They were already high as a kite yet here came the bowl again, fully packed and ready. He took it from David and put the glass to is lips. Flicking the lighter on and burning the kush. The chocolate-haired man inhaled deeply, holding it in for a few seconds before releasing the smoke from his lungs. He passed it over and sunk back into the couch. He closed his eyes and let the wave wash over his body. Just as he was really starting to slip out his phone buzzed bringing him back. It was Bex, Sawyer, and Gale.

[center [i [#3E82C2 Great. I'm starving.]]]

Brody stood from the couch very slowly. He could've stayed there all night honestly. [#3E82C2 "Sorry boys, gotta bounce."]

[b "Don't fuck this up."] David spoke as Brody grabbed the supplies.

[#3E82C2 "Have I ever?"] he shoved it into his bag. [#3E82C2 "Thanks for the sample."]

The male got into his car and downed the water bottle that sat in the drink holder. It was hot and gross but his mouth was so dry. He started up the car and pulled out of the driveway. He'd seen a couple of the gang through out the weeks. But not all of them, and especially not all together. It had felt like forever. Although he wasn't excited to see Izzy. She had been mad at him since the last week of school. She found out he started pushing meth.

Brody pulled into Klive's parking lot and parked next to Gale's car. He shoved his bag under his seat and locked the car before strolling inside. He browsed the tables and spotted Saw, Gale, and Sly at a table. [#3E82C2 "My friends!"] he exclaimed giving the three of them hugs.

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/oW7WQIM.jpg]] The brunette girl wiped her mouth with a piece of toilet paper before getting up from the floor. She walked over to the sink and brushed her teeth and used mouth wash for good measure.

Sticking her finger down her throat was something she tried not to do. But every now and then she'd loose control and boom there she was, head in the toilet bowl. But it was nothing like it use to be.

Izzy walked out of the bathroom and into her room, where she got dressed into some work out clothing. She pushed her hair up into a bun and was out the door. She absolutely hated running. It was the worst thing ever. But she did what she had to. Izzy tried to go running at least a couple times a day now and eat as little as possible. This was a new plan she had and she was sure it was going to work. She just wanted to be pretty and thin.

As the girls run was coming to an end her phone went off numerous times. Dinner? She didn't want her friends to see her not eating. As she came back into view of her house she made up her mind. She would just get a small salad and no dressing. That way she was eating with them just not putting something awful into her body.

Izzy hopped into the shower and quickly washed. She got out, blow dried her hair and put on a bit of makeup. She got dressed and was out the door in under thirty minutes. Iz didn't have a car and didn't know how to drive so she walked to the diner. She would have texted someone to pick her up but she felt she needed the exercise.

Iz walked into Klives and instantly spotted her friends at a table in the back. She avoided sitting next to Brody and instead chose the seat next to Gale. She couldn't believe how stupid he was being. He knew exactly what her dad went through and still Brody was selling shit that could get him in big trouble. And she wouldn't sit by and watch him ruin his life.

He had gotten a letter in the mail the day before, and it was from Yale. His dream school. He had been accepted, and he wanted to tell the other's as soon as possible. So when he got that message, he knew it would be the perfect time to tell everyone that. When Slyvia's house came into view he sent her a private message. [#BF283C [i Sitting outside Sly, hurry up.]] and then he waited. As he waited he looked out the window.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He rolled the window down, and let the summer air fill the car. Pretty soon Slyvia was in the front seat, and she had a new bruise on her face. The male didn't say anything, and neither did she. He sighed lightly as he pulled away from the curb, and headed into town. As he was driving his temper got under control, and that's all that mattered at the moment. He pulled into the diner's parking lot and shut the car off. He watched as Slyvia climbed out, and he wasn't far behind.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex He made sure the door's were locked, and the two walked inside. Gale was the first one to see Sawyer and he smiled. [#BF283C "Hey man, find a good table?"] he called. Slyvia on the other hand didn't say anything. She just stood there with her arm's wrapped around herself. Gale was slightly worried, but he would pull her aside later and talk to her about it. Right now this was what they were all needing. He sighed as he sat down in a chair, and looked for around for the other's. Looks like everyone was early.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex It's been two bloody weeks already. Slyvia's head was spinning, and her father was already drunk. He had raised his fist at her and hit her again. She was standing in the bathroom looking at her already bruising face. [#D8BFD8 "Great"] she muttered lightly. She heard her phone going off, but she ignored it. She didn't want to run into her father again. She tried to apply the makeup the best she could. Then she heard her phone going off again. She slowly opened the door and peeked out. Seeing that her father wasn't around, she slipped out and into her room.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex She picked up her phone and saw two messages. One from Bex and the other from Gale. She didn't want to be around here anymore, and she didn't care if the other's saw the bruise or not. They knew how she lived. She hurried and got ready. She then slipped out of her room and down the hallway. She spotted her father in the kitchen, and he was drinking again. [#D8BFD8 "Fuck you"] she muttered as she booked it out the front door. She ran to the car and slid inside. She slammed the door, and Gale started driving.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex She was glad he didn't question her, and she didn't need that right now. She just needed her friends more than ever right now. As Gale headed into town she looked out the window, and she started playing with her fingers. Her cheek was stinging and she wanted to break down into tears. She was tired of living with a drunk father, and dealing with the beating twenty-four seven. She sighed when Gale pulled into the parking lot. She waited till he was parked and climbed out.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex She went inside, nodded towards Sawyer and took a seat. She then put her head into her hands and took a deep breath. She couldn't break down at the moment. She had to be strong. She lifted her head and looked at the other's. She kept her mouth shut as she picked up a menu and looked it over. She bit the inside of her cheek as she waited for everyone else to show up. She knew she would have to answer their questions, but the silence was perfect right now. She bit her lip lightly as she placed the menu down and played with her fingers.]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Caudex][caudex She looked up at the other's, and couldn't help but wonder how she had gotten so lucky to be around them. She felt like she had been a total mess before, and then she found this little group. They were like her family, and she loved them all. She just wondered what would happen if she told them, she had tried killing herself the other night. That wasn't something she was looking forward to telling them later.]

[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/JZYDg8U.png]] [google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Quicksand] [Quicksand It was a Saturday in the second week of summer and what was Bex doing on this fine afternoon? Working. Wiping down tables, pouring drinks, serving rude people, and longing to be sunbathing. Yet she knew if she wanted to get out of this shit hole town she had to keep on. Besides, the small diner she worked at wasn't all that bad. Plus her boss was a pretty chill dude when she was nice.

"Why don't you take a quick break, baby doll." Chad said patting her shoulder.

[#F58456 "Thanks, Chad. Be back in fifteen."] she slipped out of his hold and quickly walked into the back of the establishment and into the staff bathroom. She had been holding her pee for a solid hour and she was ready to burst. Once her bladder was emptied she took a peek in the mirror. Jesus did she look a mess. Her auburn hair was falling down around her face, dark bags were visible under her eyes. She looked so tired. And she was. Bexley worked a double the day before and was back in for more. She had hardly seen her friends all week.

The girl began to take out her phone as she exited the back of the building. The sun hit her skin and immediately warmed her up and brought a smile to her face. Just the perk she needed to get through the next couple of hours. She opened the group chat and sent out a text:

[center [i [#F58456 Dinner @ Klives? 8?]]]

Dinner at the diner was a usual thing since they were open 24/7. The gang had many 2am meals throughout the years. The timer on her phone beeped and Bex slumped inside to finish her shift.

[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/KMn6iuo.jpg]] Sawyer's phone beeped in his pocket as he knelt down, one hand holding the lens and the other holding the body. His right eye was shut tight as his left peeped through the viewfinder. He snapped the shot of the bird before digging the cell out of his pocket.

Bex's text filled the screen and the boy instantly typed back his reply.

Two weeks into summer and all he had done was take pictures, get pissed on by his dad, and sleep. He had hung out with Bexley one night and just watched movies, but that was about as exciting as it got. He hadn't seen much of the gang yet. Which was absolutely ridiculous. It was their last summer together. He was going to move to New York which would probably mean hardly coming home. Saw really needed this summer to hang with his friends. Yet he was scared to tell them he got accepted to NYU. He knew they would be happy for him but it just broke his heart a little thinking about the possibility of never seeing them again. Never seeing Bex again.

Sawyer slipped the camera around his neck, stood up, and started toward his house. He was going to take a nap, shower, and head to the diner. If only it was that simple.

Instead, once home and already in bed minutes from sleep, his dad pounded into the house, barged into his room and started in on him. He wasn't doing anything with his life, he was going no where, he should be out looking for a job. It was an every day occurrence that was getting really tiring. And honestly was wearing down Sawyer to a point he knew he was going to snap soon.

After his dad was done belittling him he stripped from his clothes and hopped in the shower. In less than five minutes was he out drying off and getting dressed. He was just going to go to the diner a bit early and get them all a good table. Sawyer didn't want to be in the house any longer than needed.
