"Havi! Quit it!" a girl's laughter sounded out in the master bedroom of a small two-story home. The laughter got louder before turning into giggles and panting as she tried to catch her breath. Inside the room were two figures. A male and female. The female had white hair, messy from squirming around to get away from her 'attacker'. The male was blonde, grinning above her with his forehead pressed to hers.
"Do you give?" the male, Havi, questioned.
"I give I give!"
Havi's grinned got even wider – if possible – and he flopped down on the side of her, pulling her into his arms and cuddling up to her. The girl continued to giggle and catch her breath, cuddling back into him. It was a weekend, and they didn't have work today. It was early afternoon when they finally woke up. Last night they were at a party with their friends. They didn't get home till late and didn't go to sleep right away.
"I wuv you," he said, burying his face into her hair.
"I wuv you too," she said back.
Her name wasn't Kiki. It was Kris. Well, Kristal, but she preferred Kris. Turning in her boyfriend's arm, she gave him a quick kiss before wiggling out of bed. Havi jumped up behind her. The two got dressed for the day and went down stairs. Havi started cooking something for lunch while Kris cleaned up around him. The kitchen and living room was slightly dirty since they usually have surprise guest, Lance, come around every so often since they moved in.
Havi's mother was working until the evening. Havi finished cooking small BLT sandwiches and made some home-made potato salad. The two ate with small chatter when the doorbell rang. Havi looked up and towards the door before getting up, saying he'd get it. Kris nodded her head and continued to eat her meal.
Opening the door, he took in the small figure smiling slightly at him. It was a girl, with semi-long dark blue hair and green eyes. Tilting his head, he tried to remember how he saw her as familiar. Gosh he hoped it wasn't a girl he slept with during his dark times before Kris.
"Hello Havi," she whispered, looking down and scrunching at the bottom of her shirt.
Blinking, a light bulb went off in his head and he snapped his fingers, scaring the poor girl. "Arina! Come in come in~" he said, standing aside.
Arina nodded her head and walked in slowly, looking around. The house was lovely in her eyes. Still a bit empty and she could see a couple boxes near the TV that haven't been unpacked yet. A sound of water came from the kitchen area, followed by scrubbing, then a clank and the water was off. A girl, in her eyes, came out while wiping her hands on a small hand towel.
"Havi…who…Oh. Hi, I'm Kris," the girl greeted, holding out her hand.
Arina nodded her head, and shook hands with Kris, mumbling out her name. Kris tilted her head to the side and looked at the blonde, who hand come back from the kitchen with his sandwich in his hands.
"Her name is Arina. She's quiet and shy but an old friend of Lance, Purest, and mine. She suddenly disappeared without word one day though…" Havi mentioned, eyeing the girl.
"I-I'm sorry! I should come back later when you don't have company…" Arina stated, turning around and aiming for the door.
Havi grabbed her arm and shook his head, "That won't do. She's always here. Kris is my girlfriend."
Arina stopped dead in her tracks. Girlfriend? He wasn't the playboy that she knew anymore? Turning her head towards the two, her face flushed and she apologized like crazy for assuming.
Kris laughed and shook her head, grinning at Arina. "It's alright. It's understandable if you knew the old him. I wasn't any better before I met him either."
So…she slept with many guys, just as Havi with many girls…Arina wanted to frown at the two but shook it off. It wasn't her place anyway. Suddenly, she was being led to the couch and sat down. Havi sat down next to her as Kris left the room; but not before giving Arina a look.
'What was that…?'
"So how have you been? You suddenly disappeared one day…" Havi interrupted her thoughts with a question of his own.
Arina looked at Havi before looking down at her lap. "I can't stay in one place for too long. I left and traveled some more."
"You know each of us offered you a place to finally settle into."
"I know. But I didn't want to impose."
Havi sighed and rubbed his forehead. This girl was still difficult. Her sudden disappearance had everyone worried; even the hard ass vampire he was friends with was slightly worried.
"I'm sorry if I made you worry…"
Looking at the girl next to him, he shrugged his shoulders and grinned. "Have you seen Purest and Lance yet?"
Seeing her shake her head no, he stood up and told her to wait there. Walking into the garage, he saw his girl cleaning the tools he gave her when they first moved in. The girl yawned and he smiled before pouncing.
Kris let out a surprised yell before lightly hitting Havi on the head. "Don't do that!"
Havi only grinned and kissed her cheek, nuzzling her as if she was his childhood teddy bear. "We're going to Lance's. Apparently she hasn't seen them either."
Kris nodded her head, telling him to have fun before she turned back to her tools. The blonde looked at her and tilted his head.
"You don't want to go?"
"Seems like an old friend thing. Go have fun and catch up. I'm fine staying home today. Plus, I'm still tired so I was planning to go back to bed after I finish these."
Havi frowned before nodding. He turned her towards him and kissed her fully before leaving back inside. Walking back to the living room, he grabbed his keys hanging from the hook.
"Ready to go?"
Arina looked up in surprise, having zoned out. Pushing her hair from her face, she stood up and followed him out the door. They got into his car that was parked in the driveway before he took off towards their friend's house. It didn't take long for them to get there. Lance didn't live to far away. The two got out and walked up to the front door. Havi rang the doorbell while Arina hid her small frame behind him, a bit scared.
The door opened and a blue haired man stood there, smiling.
"Good afternoon Havi."
"Hey Purest. Look who turned up?" Havi greeted, moving aside and exposing the blue haired female behind him.
Purest blinked before smiling, pulling the girl into a hug. "Arina. How nice it is to see you again!"
Arina hesitated before hugging him back and nodding her head.
"Come in come in!"
Purest moved aside and the two walked in. A silver haired man was sitting on his couch, flipping through channels and letting out a loud yawn. "Nothing ever on TV…"
"Lance, look who came back!" Purest called out.
Lance looked up and stared at the girl in question before turning to Havi and Purest. "Who?"
Both males smacked their own foreheads with their palms.
"It's Arina. Arina!"
Arina flushed red in embarrassment as Lance looked at her again. Lance stood up and looked at her more closely before nodding his head. "I remember. You look different."
"Um. My hair is a bit longer..?"
Lance only shrugged. Soon enough, everyone was sitting down in the living room.
"How did you find Havi anyway? He moved since you were last here."
"His old worked pointed to his new one….and his co-workers who were working today told me where he lived."
"Jeez. That's comforting. What if someone wanted to kill me? They would have just gave that information away!" Havi complained, pouting.
They continued to chat and catch up. Arina filled everyone in on her recent travels and how she somehow ended up overseas for a while. She couldn't really explain how she got on the boat that led to that trip. She told them of the people she met and the friends she started to make.
Each of the males listened to her stories, adding in their own comments and questions as she spoke. Soon enough, evening hit and the doorbell rang. Purest stood and answered it. He came back with a male following him. The male was tall, with black hair and two colored eyes. One was brown, the other was a yellow-gold color.
"Tarlo…how did you find me?"
"I never let you out of my sight once you left the blonde's home."
Each male looked questioningly between the two speakers. Arina obviously knew him…but who was he? Arina noticed the looks from her friends before looking at the ground with red on her cheeks.
"This is Tarlo. He's my-"
"-Boyfriend." Tarlo interrupted.
She nodded her head, confirming what he said was right. The three boys nodded their heads, hiding their shocked. The sweet, shy girl they knew had a boyfriend. It was kind of cute. She gathered her stuff and said her good-byes before leaving, after promising to come visit again.
"Who would have thought that the sweet girl we knew would get with a boy."
"You sound like a parent Havi. Stop it."
Havi kicked Lance for the comment before bidding his farewell and heading home. It was dark when he got their and through the garage windows, a light was easily seen. Walking in through the front door, locking it behind him, he went towards his destination.
Opening the garage door, he came upon a sleeping Kris laying on the floor with a clean wrench in her hand and a rag on the floor next to her head. The blonde smiled before taking the wrench from her, setting it into its proper drawer before turning back and picking up his sleeping girlfriend.
She shifted the moment she was in his arms, groaning and burying her face into his chest. He smiled before going inside, being mindful of the door. Carefully, he walked upstairs and into their room. His mother's light shown from under a door a couple rooms down. It wasn't late so he wasn't surprised. Slowly, Havi set her on the bed and under the covers.
Kris's hands immediately grabbed onto her extra pillow, hugging it to herself. Havi went to the bathroom, which held their closet. Getting dressed in his pajamas, he slipped into bed with his girl and wrapping his arms around her, pulling towards him and spooning her to his body.
Elsewhere, Arina and Tarlo walked the dark streets, dodging drunks left and right who drank early and got drunk to fast. The two held hands as they walked.
"Have a good time then?" Tarlo finally asked, breaking their silence.
Arina nodded her head and smiled up at the male she was with. "I did. It was nice to see them again. It's been so long."
Tarlo smiled back down at him, squeezing her hand lightly. The two looked back to the front and kept walking, soon disappearing into the night.
