    the before ;; sage

    Post by Alaska Angelo on Sat Jan 13, 2018 5:01 pm

    It was the day after the students had returned from their fall excursion to Nadar. Sage had been acting strange and distant the whole way back to Martha's Vineyard, and as they had been unloading off the boat, he had gotten Ali alone to ask her to meet him somewhere private and without Nolan. She had thought it weird that he didn't want Nolan tagging along, but she respected his wishes.

    That was why Ali found herself sitting on a blanket on a somewhat warm October day at the beach. It wasn't very crowded. Just a few clio here and there, combing the beach for seashells and beach glass. She had laid down a blanket, and sat with her knees bent, using them to prop up her arms as she watched the waves and clio go by, waiting for her best friend to arrive.

    A chilly breeze blew, tousling her hair, and she pulled the sweater she was wearing tightly around her. Despite the chill, she loved this kind of weather, and it was welcoming after being on the hot and humid island for the weekend.

    Ali turned when she saw a smudge of black in the corner of her eye, then smiled when she recognized Sage's dark hair blowing in the wind. She lifted her hand in the air and began to wave him over.

    Ali's outfit because I like doing this:
    She's not wearing these heals though, just regular white ked-like tennis shoes, also she doesn't have a purse, she's also not wearing sunglasses

    Sage was meeting Ali down at the beach today so he could talk to her about the creep that was Nolan. Sage had been getting really weird vibe from Ali's newest friend lately, the latest of which had happened while the three of them were on a school trip in Nadar. Sage had brought up the vibes to Ali once before, but she'd brushed him off without even really hearing him out. Now that they were back on the mainland, though, Sage wanted to bring it up again. He'd asked Ali to meet him out here after she finished her homework, and had expected beat her here, but he caught sight of her sitting down the beach.

    "Hey there, Aligator," Sage said as he approached her. She looked up at him from a blanket she sat on, and he returned her smile. He flopped down next to her, leaning back with his hands and shoulders behind him. "You finish your homework early or something?" he asked, knowing full well she probably hadn't even started. "I'm shocked you beat me here. Hope you weren't waiting long."

    "You finish your homework early or something?"

    "Wouldn't you like to know?" Ali responded, then stuck out her tongue mischievously. She had at least started her homework, but had grown bored and decided to head out to the beach early. She unwrapped her arms from her legs and leaned back, mimicking Sage's laying position.

    "So what was so important that you needed to talk to me alone for?" Ali asked. "Were you going to confess your undying love for me?" She asked, only this time her voice was low and dramatic, while tilting her chin up and shaking out her long blonde hair.

    Ali looked back up Sage, grinning goofily at him. "Just kidding," she said, while reaching out and smacking his arm. "I'd rather die!"

    Sage raised an eyebrow, “Not quite,” he laughed. Sometimes he did feel as if he harbored feelings for her that went past friendship, but he had never gotten the impression that she felt the same way. And here on the beach, when he was more worried about her safety, thinking like that hadn’t even crossed his mind.

    “I know you didn’t want to talk about it before, but I just can’t atop thinking about how much Nolan gives me the creeps,” he admitted. “I can’t get the way he was staring at your tent out of my head.” Sage looked at Ali, a corner of his mouth dropped in a half-frown. “Don’t you get any weird vibes from him at all?”

    Ali rolled her eyes at the mention of Nolan. Sage was always worrying over her for no reason. He was almost as bad as her own father. She was a grown ass woman who could take care of herself!

    Ali sighed before saying, “Why are you still so worried over him?” She asked. “Yes, Nolan is a little...eccentric, but he’s harmless!”

    She did find it weird that he had been staring at her tent, but she just chalked it up to him hoping to get laid or something. They had been drinking that night, he was probably just feeling drunk and dumb.

    “I don’t know,” she mused. “I think you’re being too suspicious.”

    “He gives me the creeps,” Sage said. “I don’t think his eccentricity has anything to do with it. He just creeps me out.” Sage didn’t have a way to explain it besides that. He wanted to reiterate the tent thing being creepy as fuck if nothing else Nolan did sent off alarms, but he knew Ali would just brush him off again.

    He shook his head. “Next time you see him, just pay attention to how he looks at you. It’s not normal.”

    “Alright,” responded Ali. “I promise I’ll pay more attention.”

    Honestly she really thought Sage was overreacting. Guys looked at Ali all the time. She was good looking, and an Overloridians daughter. If they weren’t looking to hook up they were at least hoping to get spotted with her by the paparazzi.

    Another chilly breeze blew by, sending a chill through Ali’s bones. She pushed herself back up, and rewrapped her arms around her knees. “I think I’m ready to go back to the jungle,” she laughed.

    She looked at him and for a moment was struck by how handsome her best friend really was. His shirt was stretched tight against his muscles, and his dark hair blew in the breeze. A sudden thought of her running her hands through his hair crossed her mind, and she immediately had to look away from him. Instead, focusing on the ocean before them.

    “Let’s get some hot chocolate,” she said suddenly, trying to direct her thoughts toward anything else.
