Demyx slowly approached the house. He wasn't expecting it to be so large and well kept, though never meeting this "Tidus" guy he wasn't really sure what to expect. He stood on the porch for a moment, ready to knock, but he noticed the door was already slightly ajar. He peeked his head in and called out, “Hello? Is anyone here?” He took a few steps inside and noticed the inviting furniture. “Wow… I must be the first one here…” He said mostly to himself. He took off his shoes before fully entering the house, purely by habit, and walked over to the couch. He sat with his hands folded in his lap, looking about the neatly kept house. “Hmm. Perhaps this won’t be so bad. Especially if it stays nice and quiet like this.” He smiled and leaned against the back of the couch.
Saix still couldn't fathom why he was here as he locked his car and headed up the walkway to the house. It looked quaint and nice enough. In fact, he kinda of liked the coloring of it, but, of course, Saix being Saix, he wasn't going to say that aloud. At least he would know the person hosting, since he had done that arcade thing and all with Tidus (which was probably the reason he was here when he thought about it). "Hello? Tidus?" he called as he reached the door and lifted his hand to knock, but noticed it was already open...and obviously not shut. Smart move on the blonde's part. He waited a minute before shrugging and going in. If someone accused him of breaking and entering, he could just explain the party and the open door and hopefully he wouldn't be in to much trouble. The inside was as nice as the outside, and honestly, Saix was impressed with the tastefulness of it all. He quite liked it. Again, he he would never say so out loud.He blinked when he saw a blonde sitting on a couch that was obviously NOT Tidus. In fact, he didn't recall ever seeing him...well, okay, he did, but it was only through passing in the hall not from interaction of any sort. Basically, he knew the face somewhat, but not the name, grade...or anything for that matter."Hello," he said in way of greeting, and took up a spot with his shoulder leaning against the wall, calculating how long it would take him to get out of there.
Demyx jumped when he heard the unfamiliar voice. He looked over and saw the man with blue hair. He wasn’t sure if he lived there, or maybe in fact was Tidus… Hard to judge when he has never met him. “Hi…" He said, somewhat nervous. He doubted that it was Tidus... This guy looked too serious to ever throw a party. "My name is Demyx." He smiled lightly. "Uh, do you live here?” He asked quietly.
Aeris honked her horn in front of Tifa's house. They were nearly late for the party, and at the rate her truck was running, they wouldn't get there until midnight. "Come on, Tifa..." she grumbled. They had to pick up Sora in the meantime. She sighed. Who knew getting to a party would be more stressful than school had been altogether?
"Don't stay up for me!" Tifa shouted, waving to her aunt and uncle. She ran down her front steps and walked up to Aeris' truck. It seemed to growl at her as she opened the creaky door. "Sorry," she said, hopping in. "Guardians were bothering me about my curfew." She snapped in her seatbelt and smiled at her friend. Safety first! "But all ready! Did you bring your bathing suit?" Tifa held up hers, a two-piece of solid white with a buckle on the front of the top and a medium-link belt on the bottom.
"Of course." Aeris pulled hers from the glove compartment, having nowhere else to store it. Once dirt from an old flower pot fell from it, it was a simple pink bikini, modest and revealing at the same time. She shoved it back into the compartment. "Now, buckle up. We have to pick up Sora, and I want to be on time." She revved the engine, and it whined pitifully. Aeris groaned. She hoped Gippal and Rikku could fix it.
The house was lovely, Garnet noted as she stepped up to the front door. She seemingly to have lost Zidane yet again and she quite didn't know how he'd suddenly disappeared like that. He must've ran off somewhere she didn't know again to meet some random girl or Terra. She shook her head inwardly, letting out an exasperated sigh. She raised her hand to knock but she noticed that it was open already. But being raised as a lady by her own mother, she decided to stay on the porch until she saw Tidus. She never liked barging inside other people's houses.
Completely down down the stairs, he ruffled his hair some more with the towel set on his head, and opened the door wide. "Oh hi, Garnet right? How long have you been out here? These guys really don't know what to do when someone's waiting at door..." Tidus smiled at her and moved to the side to let her in. "Come in! Don't be shy, I won't bite." He led her to the living room and introduced the two guys."The grumpy looking guy with the blue hair is Saix, and the guy on the couch is Demyx. Guys, this is Garnet." He waggled his finger at them.
Garnet smiled brightly, thanking the gods for finally letting Tidus appear. She peered warily inside the house as if something would suddenly pounce on her before stepping through the doorway, feeling a bit uneasy with her clothes."Ah, it's okay. I was actually hoping that someone I know would arrive," she replied cheerily. "It's kinda awkward to suddenly just appear like this. And all alone." She managed a small smile at them.
First he had to see whatever problem Aeris was having with her car. 'Wierd noises' as she put it. After that, the night was his. "Time to party!" Gippal grinned and winked at Terra playfully as he parked his car and pulled out his key, dropping them into his pocket.Popping the door open, he jumped out and went around and opened the passenger seat for Terra, "Milady?"
"Don't even pretend." Rikku shot her old boyfriend a dirty look as she passed, heading up the walk to Tidus's house. She'd had to travel on foot, not being old enough to drive and having one of the most inconsiderate brothers of all time. She was already tired as hell, but determined to do her part at her very first highschool party.She knocked on the door lightly, still trying to uphold a somewhat ladylike image despite sneakers and a short t-shirt that read "What a woman!" across her boobs.
Saix mentally began to curse as he counted the number of people he DID NOT like starting to come in through the door - Gippal and Rikku among them (Gipal for having a one up on him for the car thing, and Rikku because she was a hyper type like Sora). He prayed to God he could find a dark corner, hide, sneak out, and live.
"Hello, hello! Welcome to my house... Rikku was it?" Tidus opened the door, and ushered her into his house. "Garnet's in the living room, and I'm about to put on some music on."He led her to the room, and went over to the entertainment system, turning on the speakers, and CD player. He called out behind him. "What do you guys want to here? I'm taking requests."
Kefka blinked slowly at the house in front of him. "Not bad," he muttered to himself, as was his habit. He wasn't really sure why he was here; he never really interacted much with his classmates. He was certain it couldn't be worse than having dinner with his parents, his brother, his brother's girlfriend and her parents, though.The house was quite impressive, really. And it looked more lived in than his house. Kefka was quite convinced his parents were both obsessive compulsive. It would explain the utter lack of decorations of any sort in their home."Won't do any good to stand around here, I guess." He walked up to the door and knocked. After all, he'd promised his shrink to try being social this year. That woman was scary.
Sora was still rather damp from his prompt dunk into the killer pool Tidus' family owned, but he'd toweled most of the water off in deference to the shiny wood floors. He and his dad may have only had cheap linoleum, but Sora could tell that this stuff was expensive. And didn't wood warp when wet? Sora didn't care to find out, especially if he'd have to pay for it with his nonexistent monetary funds.He'd been searching for Riku ever since get out, but hadn't seen hide nor hair of his long lost friend, and found himself wishing that he'd remembered to ask for Riku's new cell phone number before heading out. But then again, Riku probably wouldn't have told him anyway. As he was passing the front door for what had to be the seventh time that night, and eyeing the door to the kitchen as his stomach rumbled hungrily, he was a little surprised to hear the someone on the other side of the door knock. Sora, certainly, hadn't had enough manners to do so, just barging in in front of Tifa and Aeris when they'd gotten there. Sheepish, Sora scratched the back of his head, and figured he'd do Tidus a favor, then, and answer the door for him. He opened it with a grin, and said, "Hello!"
Panting, Zidane walked up the path of the big house. He had forgotten his swimming trunks. Forgetting the escape plans for Garnet was one thing, but swimming trunks to a pool party he'd known about for almost a week? He sighed. He felt bad for leaving Garnet without saying anything, too. Hopefully she was already inside and not lost or something. If an angry girl was the worst thing that happened to him tonight, he'd be okay. With another sigh, he knocked on the door.
Garnet shifted her weight to one foot, glancing at the door. Someone was knocking again and Tidus, she noted, seemed busy entertaining the others. She glanced at her watch, biting the inside of her cheek, then walked over to the door to open it. Not because she was being courteous or anything. More like she was already feeling out of the place and she was just trying to find an excuse to leave. She opened the door and a dark eyebrow rose in disdain. "You're back," she remarked flatly to her long-lost friend.
Walking up to the door of Tidus's house for his party, Nanaki glanced as Zidane stood at the door, greeted by Garnet. He quickened his pace and waved to the both of them, the tips of his mohawk bouncing as he approached the two of them, "Hey guys!"Being human, he noticed the waving motion of his hand, it intrigued him, and made him question that maybe being in human form wasn't so bad afterall.Snapping out of his childish curiosity, he scratched the back of his head and wore a quirky grin across his face.
"I missed you too, Dagger." Zidane said with a grin. He held up his trunks. "I forgot them at home."Before he could apologize for leaving her, a voice came from behind. He turned to see a boy with a mohawk coming towards them, grinning. Zidane had seen him in a hall sometimes but wasn't quite sure what his name was yet. Regardless, he grinned back at the other boy. "Hey!"
'Damn...messed up again.' Nanaki thought to himself as he slid past both of them and entered through the doorway, a little unsure of himself and everything around him at the moment. He glanced around the house, admiring it's beauty, and decided waited in the main room to be greeted, so as not to seem rude to the host.
Rufus is sitting in all his glory where ever suits his fancy, being an ass to those who bug him.
Naminé had no idea what had come over her when she'd decided on impulse to go to this party. After all, she didn't even know a single soul at her new school yet. She'd only heard people talking about it in passing several times over the course of a week, and thought that it might be fun, as well as a good place to perhaps make a few friends. As an afterthought, Tidus did seem to be a visibly friendly and hospitable guy. It almost felt wrong to be frightened by him. Or, to be more precise, by his party. Which was frightening now that it came to her.She shook her head as though trying to shake away the worrisome thoughts that consumed it. Trying not to let the apprehension show on her face, Naminé then stepped tentatively onto the spacious porch and knocked on the door.
Zidane walked onto the porch, smiling at the girl. "I think Tidus is a bit busy helping the people inside, so I guess we can just head on in." He pushed the door open and allowed her to go in first. "I think I've seen you a few times in the hallways."
"Oh. Okay, thank you," she says, a bit startled by his voice right behind her. In an attempt to be a little less reserved than usual, Naminé added somewhat timidly, "I think I've seen you too... um..." she searched her mind for the name he answered to during roll call, "Zidane. Aren't we in the same algebra class?"
Zexion didnt understand why he was here, he hated pool parties, but he figured that perhaps he might not have to venture into the pool...However if the worse came to the worse he was wearing his swimming trunks beneath his black trousers.Slowly he pushed open the door and stepped inside, nearly crashing into Zidane who was standing talking to a blond haired girl that Zexion was pretty sure he'd seen a few times recently."Sorry Zidane." Zexion muttered, quickly trying to edge round him.
