Logan pulled up to a beach around 6pm. They’d been driving all day with lots of stops all along the way, and this random part of Mexico with a beach seemed as good as any.

He was a little cramped from sitting there so long. He turned to everyone in the car. “I say, we stop here. We can go and find dinner, too."

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 08:45 pm (UTC)

"I'm down," Dick said a little drunkely. "Food is good." Especially good after you knock back 1/5 of tequila mostly by yourself and have to listen to geeks chatting it up for way too many hours.

Beaver was ready to get out too. His neck was sort of sore from leaning over to talk to Mac about her computer. He rubbed his neck and thought about how cool she was. "I agree with Dick. I need some tacos statim."

They both tumbled out of the car and stretched their respective limbs.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 08:49 pm (UTC)

Mac shut her laptop and pushed open the car door. The sea smelled even closer than in Neptune and the sun shined brightly on her shoulders. She even thought tiny birds might land on her shoulder like Snow White for a second. Smiling at her self, she glanced over at Beav. That one was not a normal 09'er that's for sure.

"Heya Logan, know if they got anything vegan here?" She asked with a laugh.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 09:10 pm (UTC)

Logan got out and stretched a bit, then reached for Veronica's hand as she got out too.

"Uh, yeah. I think 'pollo' is their word for Vegan." He grinned.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 09:15 pm (UTC)

"Ah, tortillas, jalapenos and beer for me then. I am truly feeling the Mexico now," Mac responded to Logan with a smile. "I think I am finally ready for that tequila shot now, Dick." She turned to him and saw the empty bottle dangling from his fingertips.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 09:18 pm (UTC)

"You snooze, you lose, loser," Dick responded and them promptly began laughing at his own joke. "Don't worry, girlie, we can always get another bottle!"

"Logan, dude, what about that place down near the beach for dinner? Remember that time we met those hottie senoritas there and--" Dick started.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 09:26 pm (UTC)

That made Logan chuckle. "Of course. How could I forget?" He avoided eye contact with Veronica.

"Let's go. I'm starved. And maybe we can find some grass and beer for Mac." They headed down the beach til they got there.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 09:32 pm (UTC)

"Remember when that one girl totally took her top off--" Dick started.

Beaver shoved him a little setting him off balance, "Shut up, Dick. Nobody wants to hear this anecdote, I'm sure." He look over to Veronica.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 09:35 pm (UTC)

"Those of us who do, were there." Logan added. "And I'm sure there won't be any of that there tonight anyway."

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 09:45 pm (UTC)

"True dat. We were so there, Dude," Dick laughed a little to himself, but didn't finish his story. He saw that freaky girl heading to a cafe. Well, he certainly wasn't getting any action from Ronnie, maybe he would go put the moves on her. Or if nothing else she was heading the direction of more tequila and tacos.

Beaver rolled his eyes, but followed Dick and Mac.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 09:35 pm (UTC)

"You sure know the way to a girl's heart, Logan. Grass-eating beer swiller, that's me," Mac said. "I think I see place just down the beach. Let's head there." She began walking in the direction of the restaurant.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 09:48 pm (UTC)

"Well what can I say, I'm a charmer. Just ask Veronica," he replied as they stepped into the restaurant.

It... Didn't look at all familiar. He must have been rather drunk last time. They took a seat in a booth. "Ok, so, qui hablas espanol?" Logan said in the worst accent. Ever.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 10:09 pm (UTC)

Mac eased into the plastic chair, "Sorry, amigo, my spanish is about as good as my swahili."

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 10:14 pm (UTC)

"I can say 'I want to do your hot mother' but that is about it," Dick said with leer as he lifted his eyebrows and scoured the retaurant for a hottie.

"I do," Beaver said. "What does everyone want?"

"Enchilades and El Beer with lime, dude," Dick said.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 10:27 pm (UTC)

"Quesadilla and beer," Logan added. He held Veronica's hand below the table, and tickled her palm lightly.

"So where are we going? Are we staying around here tonight?"

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 10:32 pm (UTC)

"I want some tortillas, the spiciest salsa they've got and beer, please," Mac requested.

"I think we should stay somewhere around here. I don't think any of us has any plans of what we are actually going to do down here."

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 10:36 pm (UTC)

"You mean other than surfing?" Logan pointed out. "We gotta rent some boards," he reminded Dick.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 10:41 pm (UTC)

"I can't wait to break some waves, dude. The *ahem* ladies can go see old broken buildings while you and I rip it up!" Dick replied. This was going to be so awesome.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 10:44 pm (UTC)

Logan shrugged. "Well, who knows? Maybe they want to learn to surf," he glanced at the Mac and Veronica. "Or maybe they already know," he added, not wanting to offend them. "Or maybe they want to swim... Or tan. Whatever it is you guys do."

Ok, shut up now, Logan.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 10:50 pm (UTC)

Mac laughed and in her valley girl voice, "Oh you know, we totally have to do our nails, chew bubble gum and wear tiny bikinis." Mac pretended to primp her hair and Veronica laughed along with her. This was more fun than mac would have imagined. She wished that Dick Casablancas would drop off the end of the earth, but 3 out of 4 cool people wasn't bad.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 10:53 pm (UTC)

"I totally vote for chicks in bikinis. Or without bikinis is fine too," Dick winked at Veronica.

A tray full of beers in his hands, Beaver arrived back at the table. "Cervezas for all." He plopped down in seat and took a drink off of his beer. "Did I hear something about surfing?" Beaver was a terrible surfer, but he knew he was always allowed to tag along.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 10:57 pm (UTC)

Logan smirked at Mac's faux cute-ness.

Then he kicked Dick hard under the table for that comment, and glared at him.

"Thanks," he said to Cassidy, grabbing his beer. "That's the plan."

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 04:02 pm (UTC)

Veronica pretended to gag at Dick. "Logan, when Dick starts coming on to me, he stops drinking, okay?" But it was lighthearted.

If she seemed distracted, it was because she kept pulling out her sidekick and apparently texting a person or persons unknown.

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 04:16 pm (UTC)

OOC: I am strating a new comment thread below.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 10:37 pm (UTC)

"And there are some pretty cool ruins only a small hike from here," Beaver piped in and then felt embarassed. "Um, I mean if anyone is down with looking at old buildings."

"Gay!" Dick yelled. "Seriously, how did you get to be my brother anyway?" He shook his head in disgust. How was he going to teach this kid to grow up?

Veronica said she wanted a quesidilla and beer too. Beaver glared at Dick and got up to go order the food. Well, Mac probably didn't think he was cool now, no matter how much he knew about quantum physics.

Wed, May. 24th, 2006 09:21 pm (UTC)

Logan rolled his eyes. "You missed the window there, Mac."

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 04:19 pm (UTC)

Mac took a long swig off of her beer. It tasted better in Mexico. She noticed Veronic fiddling with her phone and being all distracted girl.

"Hey Mr. Bond, you can take a break from the case for one beer can't you?" Mac said with a smile, but a look of concern on her face. What was Veronica wrapped up in?

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 04:24 pm (UTC)

"Do you know how to surf, Mac?" Beaver asked. He hoped that they could all go surfing together, so he didn't just have to get left behind by Logan and Dick.

"Of course she doesn't, bro, she's a vegan. She probably doesn't want to hurt the fish or something," Dick remarked. He turned to Veronica,

"What you don't like the Dickmaster's moves?" He started to do a little dance in his chair, pausing only to drink his beer in one long swallow.

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 04:25 pm (UTC)

"Uh-huh," Veronica said, finishing off whatever she was doing and sliding the sidekick back into her pocket. "Sorry. What?" She missed the Bond reference, and reached for her beer. She took a drink and made a face. She never had been particular to beer.

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 04:27 pm (UTC)

"Are you okay?" Mac asked seriously. Veronica usually kept the emotions underwraps, but this was a little ridiculous. Maybe it had something to do with her dad not being her dad or something.

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 04:35 pm (UTC)

Realizing that her distraction hadn't gone unnoticed, Veronica hitched a grin onto her face. "Fine. There's just a lot of money riding on this case, and I'm trying to help out as much as I can." She met Mac's gaze. "You know what money can do to a girl's concentration."

In truth, she had been working on Lilly's case, but she wasn't about to announce that in front of this group.

"Jeez Dick, get a room."

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 04:44 pm (UTC)

Mac nodded and decided to leave it alone for now. "So, Veronica, should we show these boys how to surf tomorrow?"

To Beaver, she stage whispered, "Don't tell anyone, but I have absolutely no clue how to surf."

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 10:52 pm (UTC)

Logan eyed Veronica and her techie business and hoped she would let that stuff go for the weekend, but wasn't counting on it.

"You're telling me the Nerd Squad doesn't take field trips to the beach to master surfing skills?"

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 10:57 pm (UTC)

Mac flashed Logan her biggest smile, "Us nerd-y types are kept in giant plastic bubbles and not allowed in places like 'the beach'."

Mac was quite certain that surfing was not going to come easy to her, but she was always willing to give something new a try. She saw the waiter coming out with their food. Her stomach growled.

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 10:59 pm (UTC)

"Really?" Dick asked with a sincere look on his face. He could totally believe that Mac was one of those bubble people. She certainly looked pale enough.

Beaver gave Mac a shy smile, "Don't worry about the surfing thing. I am sure you can learn."

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 11:01 pm (UTC)

"I hear there's also this option called 'swimming'," Logan deadpanned.

Their food was put in front of them and he quickly began to chow down. Him? Hungry? Hell yes.

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 11:25 pm (UTC)

Mac rolled her eyes at Dick. She turned to Logan, "What is this 'swimming' you speak of? I think have heard of it before. It takes place in something called 'water'?" She picked up a tortilla and littered it with jalapenos. Mmmm...spicy food.

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 11:38 pm (UTC)

"It's where we throw you in the water and see if you can float." Logan replied. He ate silently for a while; they'd talked a lot of the way there, and he was also starving.

Thu, May. 25th, 2006 11:44 pm (UTC)

Mac went back to eating and everyone else finished their food too.

Dick knew a cool spot by the beach with little cabins, so they made their way down there, rented one and then all ended up sitting around looking at each other.

"I'm going to follow Dick's lead here and bust out the tequila in moments of silence." Mac reached into her suitcase and brought out the carefully wrapped bottle of Cuervo she had stolen from her mother's liquor cabinent.

Tue, May. 30th, 2006 04:46 pm (UTC)

Veronica arched an eyebrow at her friend and grinned. "Mac, I didn't know you had it in you!"

Tue, May. 30th, 2006 04:53 pm (UTC)

Mac winked at Veronica, "I like to keep them guessing." She unscrewed the cap and took a sip. She made a terrible face and then busted up laughing. "Now you all see my true colors. She passed the bottle over to Veronica.

Tue, May. 30th, 2006 05:16 pm (UTC)

Veornica took the bottle and tipped it back for a swallow--or that's what it looked like. She didn't really do more than get her lips wet with the stuff, but her skills were such that she didn't think anyone would notice. She made a bitter face and passed the bottle to Logan. "Go on, show us lightwieghts how it's done."

Thu, Jun. 15th, 2006 05:21 am (UTC)

Logan raised his eyebrows at Veronica. "Well, this is a side of you I don't think I've ever witnessed." He grinned, and took a swig himself.

Sun, Jun. 18th, 2006 03:50 am (UTC)

Veronica pouted her lips, trying not to laugh. "There's a lot of sides of me you haven't witnessed."

Mon, Jun. 26th, 2006 05:01 pm (UTC)

"Uh oh. Should I be worried?" It was almost as if she was trying to keep him nervous.

Tue, Jun. 27th, 2006 12:20 am (UTC)

This time Veronica did laugh. "Don't you worry that pretty little head about anything. And besides," she paused, looking at him askance, "didn't you see me get drunk at our little Homecoming thing?"

Tue, Jun. 27th, 2006 06:46 am (UTC)

"Yeah that was..." That was a long time ago. That was when things were different.

He reached over and took a swig of her drink. "There. At least now we'll both be drunk."

Tue, Jun. 27th, 2006 05:22 pm (UTC)

"Dude, stop bogarting the bottle and pass it over to me," Dick said to Veronica.

Beaver wasn't exactly sure he wanted to drink. He liked it, but hated it at the same time. Control was important to him, but so was fitting in.

And somehow it always ended up with him vomiting.

Tue, Jun. 27th, 2006 05:25 pm (UTC)

"We'll all get our turn, Dick, don't you worry. Don't you have a backup anyway? I would think that this bottle would hardly get you to the stupor state that you are used." Mac half-smiled to take the sting out a little, but she sort of hoped that Dick would pass out quickly. He was such a jackass.

Tue, Jun. 27th, 2006 06:50 pm (UTC)

Veronica relinquished the bottle with minimal eye-rolling. "Oh, Dick always has a backup around somewhere. He can't get through the day anymore without a drink. Or that's what I hear in the girl's bathroom, anyway."
