xxxTink chuckled. "I like to think I know wines, but I can only go by what I've seen on wine tours and such. Plus, I think I have more money invested in my wine cellar than my closet, so.." She shrugged about being brave. "It's a gated community and I have a good friend close by. But I was thinking about getting a big dog." When he expressed disappointment at the fact that she didn't throw parties she laughed. "Nope, sorry, this is about as wild as I get in my home, and it's not even a proper party. I prefer to go to other people's houses and clubs and such. I love partying and dancing, but my home is my sanctuary and I need it to be separate from my public life." She raised an eyebrow, a little surprised when they said they worked for a bank. "Seriously? But you guys are gorgeous, you should be models or something." Well, someone wasn't shy. When she was asked what she did she beamed again. "I'm actually a make up artist. I mostly only work on Collet Thayer's movies now, but I used to do make up for movies as well as tv shows. Plus, I have my own make up line coming out in a few weeks. I'm really excited about it." She looked around then, making sure people weren't at each other's throat and sagged a little when her eyes fell on Jason and Alex. Then Connor, Nathan and Chris all went up to him. "s**t! I'm sorry excuse me." She sighed with relief when Xia came over, shocking herself a little. She never thought she'd be glad the girl was there, but now Tink didn't feel as guilty for leaving the twins. She paused when Jack stopped her. "Sure, though I think you might want to wait for a bit." Then she walked past them and made her way over to the crowd.
xxxAcross the patio Billie sat up and grimaced. "First of all, screw you you know you'll be first in line. And second.." She nodded at the crowd around the bar and Tink making her way over. "It might be time to catch that cab.." She sighed and looked for Sophie, praying she had enough sense to stay out of it all.
xxxConnor put a hand on Nathan's shoulder, pulling him back. "Too late, mate. Best to hang back now." He listened as Chris raged at Jason. Really he agreed a little. Yelling and giving a person s**t never helped. He should know, he'd been in Alex's position when he was his age and no one had been able to get him to stop. But, he also got where Jason was coming from. It broke his heart to see Alex spiraling down, but it wasn't his place to lecture the kid. The only thing that had gotten Connor to ease up was falling for Collet and everyone backing off a bit. Connor looked over and saw Tink approching. "Oh s**t, we're in trouble now."
xxxTink pushed her way into the middle of the crowd, right between Alex and Jason. She shoved them both, hard. "Enough! Jesus Christ, what is wrong with you all? Do you not understand the meaning of 'stress free'?" She glared at everyone around her, including Connor and Chris. "One night, I just wanted one night before everything gets a million times worse. One night to remember why we all like each other's company. But no, y'all have to air dirty laundry with everyone around." She stomped her foot. "No one forced you to come, you know. If you knew you wouldn't be able to handle it without fighting you shouldn't have showed up." She looked at Jason. "Jason, stop yelling at him for one ******** night. Did yelling and lecturing do anything for Connor? No." She turned to Alex. "And Alex. One night, just one night go easy on the drinking. I'm not saying stop, I'm just saying ease up, just for tonight. And don't push Jason's buttons." She looked at Collet and Sophie and back to the boys. "For once, you both need to pull your heads out of your asses and look around. Look what you're both doing to the people who love you. Yelling and fighting isn't going to solve anything, Chris is right, it's just going to push everyone away. That's goes for both of you." She crossed her arms. "My God, it's like you enjoy pissing each other off!!" She took a deep breath. "Now, you both should stay on opposite sides of the room for the night. And if you all, " She looked around the patio, including everybody in the 'you all'. "Don't ******** behave, I swear to go I will find every pair of my heavy shoes and give you all concussions!!" She waited, half expecting to be yelled at in return, half expecting most people to leave.
xxxConnor grinned and leaned in towards Nathan. "Think you can handle her, mate?" He bit his tongue to stop from laughing.
((Ok, so I may have just overstepped my RP boundaries and ******** with some storylines. If I did, let me know and I have no problem editing. I just couldn't see any other option than for Tink to step in before things got really heated, since it is her house and all. Or feel free to ignore Tink and fight anyway, I can have her walk away from it seeing she can't stop it.))
