Ruth – so Matt, does your boy Blake fancy our Summer?
Matt coughs at her bluntness – Not sure I have the answer for that
Kat – seems to us that he has had his eyes on her since ye got here and now he can’t even look at her
Matt – how did ye know he was watching her?
Ruth – it’s called being observant. We noticed when ye walked in, we also noticed that Blake didn’t take his eyes off her once
Matt – you noticed that too huh?
Kat – so he does like her?
Matt – honestly he hasn’t said a thing.
Ruth – so do we interfere or let them figure it out themselves?
Matt – what? Does she like him too?
Ruth – she hasn’t said anything either but they are kind of just looking at each other a lot lately and smiling at each other or am I the only one that noticed this?
Matt – seems that way. What else have you noticed?
Ruth – well you seem to fancy our Kat here and she seems to like you too
Matt & Kat – What?
Matt – what are you talking about?
Ruth – oh I dunno, how about every time you walk into a room you search the room until you spot her and the you smile to yourself. You know she does the same thing.
Matt & Kat – no I don’t
Ruth – and now ye are talking in sync – god I’m good at this.
Kat – Ruth!
Ruth – yes dear
Kat – ugh!
Matt – Kat, want to get a drink and escape Ruth?
Kat – yeah come on
Ruth – and that’s another couple off on my list – enjoy love birds, now who is next?
Cain makes his way over to Ruth and the boys.
Cain – well gang, how’s things?
James – moved on from Summer already, that’s quick?
Cain – Na man, was only doing that to get a reaction out of Blake
John – what do you mean?
Cain – think my man has a thing for her and he won’t admit it. He has never had to work for a girl before so this is all new to him. Thought I’d get the ball rolling
Ruth – oh my god I think I’ve found my perfect match
Cain – what do you mean sweet cheeks?
Ruth – Sweet cheeks, really? Come on, I need something better than that
Cain – Sorry Tiny Temper!
Ruth – now that’s more like it.
Cain – Feisty, I like it
Ruth – you don’t know how feisty I can get wink wink
Cain – Wanna show me how much?
Ruth – give me your digits and we can pick this up later tonight with less of an audience
Cain – damn girl, I think you just got my heart and my digits
Ruth – just be aware, I don’t do refunds so I’ll be keeping them both
James – ok ok, that’s it, I’m going to look for a hook up, chat to ye later
John – wait for me man, I can’t be left with them, they’ll be dry humping each other in a minute
Ruth and Cain sit beside each other, chatting and drinking, realising they have a LOT in common.
Ok how long have I been standing here staring at Blake and why hasn’t he said anything
Summer – uhm hi?
Blake – hey
Summer – (oh my god is he blushing?), so this is awkward
Blake – nothing new there then ha ha ha
Summer – that should totally be our saying ha ha
Blake – most couples have a song, we have a saying
Summer – couples?
Blake – shit I didn’t mean it like that,
Summer – ha ha ha I know what you meant, come on "boyfriend" let’s get something to drink.
Blake – (dumb ass, what happened to cool Blake who can get any girl he wants). What do you want to drink?
Summer – I’ll just have a coke thanks
Blake – you not drinking?
Summer – no, not much of a drinker
Blake – so those dance moves were all sober Summer
Summer – yup 100% all me
Blake – I like it. (Damn am I blushing, cop on man)
Summer – Sorry?
Blake – what I meant is that most girls need to be drunk before they can just let their hair down and dance, you go straight for it.
Summer – yeah just give me a song I can sing and dance to and I’m off,
Blake – takes a lot of confidence to do that without alcohol
Summer – when you come from a family of modern hippies, trust me you need to get used to weird stares, I just take it all in my stride.
Blake – what do you mean?
Summer – hello my name is Summer Winters, Really like? My parents think they are in the 60’s. They dress like hippies and drive the hippy mobile. Don’t get me wrong, I have the best parents in the world but when you see some of the things they get up to, you end up being bullied a lot as a child so you learn to stand up for yourself and just embrace who you are
Blake – wow!
Summer – I know
Blake – Summer Winters – ha ha ha ha ha, so if you have kids are you going to name them Spring and Autumn?
Summer – god no, that’s my sister and brothers names
Blake – What??? Seriously?
Summer – ha ha ha ha ha ha god no, I’m an only child
Blake – thank god for that, poor kids. So you were bullied at lot as a child?
Summer – I was until I was 10, then I got myself some proper friends (looking at the table where her friends were), we back each other up 100%, no bullshit, no lies. If something has to be said then it’s said. We’ve always been like that, it’s the rule.
Blake – I hear ya, I have that with Matt and Cain. Been best friends with them since we were 4, been through a lot with them, wouldn’t have it any other way.
Blake looks over and sees Cain dancing with Ruth and Matt dancing with Kat. He doesn’t see the other 2 boys anywhere. This hasn’t turned out to be a bad night after all.
