    listen to the dramz :: scout

    Post by Poppy Selway-Sommers on Tue Aug 22, 2017 10:42 pm

    "So basically his mom is, like, dating, Uncle Henri," Poppy finished, taking a swig of the nasty cheap vodka Senna had given her earlier that week.

    She and Scout were sitting on the metal walkway that wrapped around the top of the abandoned lighthouse, talking about what had happened after Poppy had ditched Scout at Bentley's last night. It was only nearing 6 o'clock, so it was a bit early to be drinking by most clio's standards, but Poppy and Scout had a party to go to tonight, anyway, so starting a little early wasn't a bad thing.

    She handed the bottle to Scout and kicked her legs as they dangled over the edge of the walk. "It was a weird night."

    "Huh," Scout mused, while grabbing the bottle of cheap liquor from Poppy and taking a swig. She winced, wishing she had a chaser or something to mix it with.

    Scout and Poppy had been roommates since the two of them had started at Redfern, so she knew about all the drama that had happened to Poppy and her family. This was some new and interesting news to Scout, since she herself was convinced that Poppy's uncle was never going to move on. How tragic.

    "How do you feel about all of this?" She asked, before taking another sip of the nasty drink. It had been a few years since Poppy's aunt had disappeared, so it was okay that her uncle was moving on, right?

    Poppy shrugged. "I haven't had that much time to think about it," she said honestly. "I know it's not fair, but part of me feels angry, almost." She loved her uncle, and obviously wanted him to be happy, but it was Aunt Estela he was basically leaving behind. "She's not dead, you know?" Poppy said. "Or, like, maybe she is. But we don't know that."

    Poppy had spent so much time burying thoughts of Aunt Estela that it was still hard for her to talk about her so casually.

    "On the other hand I'm happy. I mean, Axel seems like a great guy. His mom probably is, too. The brother was a piece of work, but I don't think they have the same mom. And I obviously want Uncle Henri happy."

    She took the bottle from Scout and took another drink. It burned going down, but she didn't care. The feeling was definitely preferable to trying to force herself to let the idea of Aunt Estela being alive somewhere go.

    "So like, if you and Axel hooked up," Scout mused. "And his mom and your uncle got married, would that mean you hooked up with your cousin?" Scout giggled at the absurdity of it all. The vodka was finally making her feel a little warm, fuzzy, and dizzy, but in a good way.

    "I still can't believe you spent the night with this Axel guy," she said. "But didn't have sex with him."

    Scout would have been all over that. She loved randomly hooking up. Still got the benefits of sleeping with a hot guy, without any commitment. She really was her mother's daughter.

    "This Spenser guy sounds sexy," she said, giggling again. "He sounds bad."

    Scout had a thing for bad boys who treated her like shit. That was part of the reason why she didn't have very many relationships. That, and the fact that she was still a baby. But out of the few relationships she actually had that lasted for longer than a month, the guy was usually a jerk. She'd get tired of them, and break it off. Cry over him for about a week, find a new conquest and get over it. She was probably a little too young to be hooking up with random guys at the bar, but she didn't care. She was going to settle in a few months anyway, and soon it wouldn't be illegal anymore.

    "Okay, woah, I never said anything about hooking up with him," Poppy laughed. "Believe it or not, I don't feel like sleeping with every cool guy I meet." She bumped playfully into Scout's arm. While Poppy had no problem with Scout's promiscuity as long as it wasn't hurting Scout (and actually quite enjoyed hearing about the drama that said promiscuity usually brought about), she had never felt inclined to partake.

    When Scout mentioned Spenser, Poppy shook her head. "No, really, something was wrong with that kid. Like, who threatens their brother like that? Senna and I got into plenty of fights, but that was just..I don't know. It was weird." She remembered how creeped out she'd felt, and wondered if it had been because of the drinking or if Spenser really had been that scary. "He's not the good kind of bad," she laughed.

    "I'm not talking about last night," Scout giggled. "I mean, like what if you did?"

    Scout knew that her roomie wasn't as promiscuous as she was, in fact, she was pretty sure that Poppy was still a virgin. That didn't bother Scout none at all, as long as Poppy was happy, healthy, and safe that was all that mattered. She did tease her sometimes, but never to the point where it was disregarding Poppy's feelings, or peer pressure.

    Poppy wrote:"He's not the good kind of bad,"

    Scout sighed wistfully and said, "Why do all the hot ones have to be creeps?"

    Not that Scout knew what this Spenser guy looked like anyway. She just assumed he was attractive from Poppy's description. "I'm done hooking up with wimpy guys," she decided out loud. "I need to find me a tattooed, beef cake, manly man!"

    Poppy laughed. "You're just into creeps, Scoutalout," she told her. Scout had made it a habit of dating so called "bad-boys" that always left her broken hearted. Scout was well aware of her decisions, but she couldn't help it. Her impulsiveness was one of the things Poppy loved about her--she was always down for whatever. That said, there definitely were good guys out there, and they weren't all "wimps". Poppy hoped Scout would find one. "Find yourself a hot cake beef muffin that isn't creepy, won't you?" she said, laughing again.

    "Anyway, Axel was definitely cute," she admitted. She took another drink of the vodka and then set it down between them. "But he doesn't live on Martha's Vineyard, so that crosses him out." She rested her chin on the metal bar of the railing. "I'm kinda into that Beau kid, anyway," she said, mentioning the sixth year boy that had been trying to get her to go out with him for a few weeks now. He was the one that had invited them to the party they were going to tonight.

    "Beau is so..." Scout scrunched up her nose as she tried to come up with a descriptive word. "Skinny."

    She giggled, then grabbed the bottle of vodka and took a huge gulp. She stuck out her tongue in disgust afterwards. Beau was definitely a cute guy, but not Scout's type. She wanted a man who could pick her up and throw her over his shoulder, like she was a rag doll.

    Scout did like that Beau was an older guy. Albeit, only a year older, but still, he was older.

    "What time are we suppose to be at that party anyway?" She asked.

    Poppy laughed. For all the similarities between she and her roommate, their taste in guys couldn't be more different. To be fair, Beau wasn't really Poppy's usual type, either. He was way too into her, which was usually a turn off.

    She shrugged at the question. "We could probably show up around nine or ten. Same as usual."

    Scout nodded then took another sip from the bottle. It was getting pretty low, and the two girls were feeling pretty good. She sat there, looking thoughtful for a moment, swinging her skinny legs over the edge they were sitting upon. She licked any remaining vodka from her lips and shuddered at the strong taste of it.

    "Should we start heading back to our dorm?" She asked. "I look like crap and I want to change."

    Poppy agreed, definitely wanting to change and get ready. So the girls packed up their stuff (aka their almost finished bottle of cheap vodka) and headed back to their shared dorm so that they could get ready for the party.

    Poppy was ready for anything to help keep her mind off of her family situation, and the night was sure to fit the ticket!
