Ax helped him up and offered a dip in the ocean. "I would take you up on that, but I don't think I could keep myself afloat." He chuckled before easing himself down to sit, next to Erin. Then she confessed that it wasn't too fair for that to be her dare. Bartok shrugged. "Fair enough. How about..."

He was about to dare her to dance with him, all slow like. He knew she wasn't into him, but man he bet she could dance and dancing was always fun with someone who knew how. But he was too tired. His muscles ached, and he probably didn't look the prettiest right now. He opened up his scroll and started playing a song. "I dare you to dance until this song is over, with a dance partner of your choosing." He smiled, showing teeth.

In no way was he expecting her to choose him. It would suck if she chose him, honestly. He'd probably flop into the fire. "Lets take a break from all the harsh dares and just enjoy some music and dancing, yeah?"

"Fair enough. How about..."

Ax encouraged Bartok's caution by immediately giving him a dubious look. The guy was blind, but it didn't exactly prevent her from emoting at him like he could see clearly. She blinked and took on a thoughtful expression as the song came on and he made his dare.

Her feather-tipped ears perked up a bit at the music. She pursed her lips to the side, gently nodding her head to the beat while she gave it a few cursory seconds, taking in the general vibe of the tune. She tilted her head a little to the side and shrugged a bit, her expression nonplussed. Okay, mostly pretty easy. She rose her soda can, took a swig, gave Al a little smile beside her, and then hopped up from her spot, stepping nearer to the center of the group as she felt out some idle steps for an easygoing dance.

She stepped slowly, leisurely in time with the jazzy beat. It was a slow and simple dance that'd be easy for just about anyone to copy in a pinch, but the slow, deliberate motions definitely drew attention to her long legs and shapely thighs. The rocker-bird stepped in a little circle, swaying her hips side-to-side, her tailfeathers bouncing and giving the motion all that much more dramatic flair. While Ax wasn't exactly trying to impress anyone with the complexity of her motions, she wasn't about to go letting anyone come to the mistaken conclusion that she wasn't a good dancer. Something easy for someone else to match the energy of would be more fun for everyone, seeing as she had no idea how good of dancers anyone here was.

"Hmm..." she scrunched up her brow a little in thought while she moved. The gears turned while she puzzled out who she wanted to join her. Her expression lit up a little when she finally decided.

"I choose... Erin," Ax beamed, motioning to her with a curved, beckoning finger.

"C'mon, dance with me!"

Erin chuckled and pulled her lips into her mouth to hide her amusement at the idea of an entirely round existence. It sounded more than a little ridiculous and she couldn't help but smirk at the ridiculous things that the mind would believe when unconscious.

Pyry was dared to dump the ice in the cooler on his head and she felt a small wave of satisfaction. He deserved to sit in a tub of ice but this would do. Then he picked up the entire cooler. Eyes narrowing she tilted her head as she watched. How was he going to get the sodas and snacks out when both his hands were- He dumped the entire cooler out on himself. Much like Bartok, she cringed into herself as the contents slammed into him. Even with his aura it sounded painful. She wasn't sure he deserved all that but it was equal parts amusing and pity inspiring. She almost asked if he was okay. Almost.

Bartok was given a handstand, turned headstand, and she sighed. It was funny that both boys would twist their instructions to make the dare harder than it needed to be. Did boys do this to show off or was it an unconscious reaction to being tested?

Though she found the general idea hilarious, she couldn't stop from being concerned about his ears. Sometimes she worried she cared more about then than he did, but she was the one who took a chunk out of one of his ears so maybe it was her punishment to always be on guard against things that could cause damage.

Ax was back and seemed in a much better mood. Hopefully things would stay lighthearted and not devolve into chaos again, she was enjoying herself and wanted Ax to keep enjoying too.

Erin was going to help Bartok up but he dared Ax to help him so she held steady in her seat. It was ridiculous how much effort it took to hold back. She was so used to being the one he went to...

"It was Pyry on Bartok, the dare I mean.." She offered quietly, answering the question she wasn't sure Ax really wanted answered.

Bartok dared Al to dance and Erin leaded forward, her chin resting in the palms of her hands as she watched Ax fall into a gentle, alluring, rhythm that flowed well with her height and feathers. Bartok or Vlithra seemed the obvious choices for a partner so she was content to watch quietly while the rest of the dare unfolded. Until she was the one chosen.

Eyes going wide in surprise, she looked around to see everyone else's reactions. She'd thought she misheard but apparently not. Was this really going to happen? She considered just taking a slap but honestly it was easy and she didn't want to wimp out so early.

Standing up stiffly she took her place in front of Ax and studied the movements for a few counts. Erin was almost half a foot shorter and her features not as pronounced, but she was gifted with an attractive hourglass figure of her own so she knew she wouldn't look lesser than her partner. Falling into step with Ax she added a few extra movements of the tail to keep hers from swaying aimlessly behind her. Every movement counted when dancing.

As they danced her gaze drifted across the onlookers. What would her next dare be? Certainly something more interesting than a weird nightmare. Maybe something that would inspire a slap?

Returning to the moment, she looked up at Ax through her bangs as the song ended. She was very lovely and quite a good dancer. "Thank you for the dance milady." She purred as she took Ax's hand with a dramatic bow before kissing it and letting it go. Which gave her the idea for her next dare.

"Apologies in advance, Vlithra." She wanted it known that she wasn't trying to stir trouble but would raise the stakes a bit so as to not be the one using kid gloves. "Using either Bartok or Pyry, put your faces as close as you can without kissing and hold it for thirty seconds. Eyes open of course."

Vlithra‘s truth for Erin met a more unexpected answer. The tigress originally meant to ridicule Barotk a tad bit and for Erin to play him up a wee bit. After all there must have been a legitimate reason for her to keep the guy around. However she didn‘t expect the racoon girl to pack a full on story for her answer. It was a compelling to say the least so she nodded along to confirm her satisfaction with that answer.

Following that Al had to describe her strangest dream and a strange dream she delivered. A reality completly made of round objects… it sounded ridiculous which was easily why the wolf faunus chose it as her answer.

Then Pyry was dared by Al to dump the entire cooler of ice on his head. That was quite the dare to say the least, but not one the obnoxious party crasher wasn‘t going to perform. Vlithra giggled amused as he went towards the cooler to went on with the dare. Now wait, aren‘t there still… Vlithra with one eyebrow raised she watched as Pyry then dumped the contents of the entire cooler along cans onto his head. The tigress barely contained a laugh by coughing once. So the guy was equally blunt as he was obnoxious, or he was just stupid… whatever it was.

Bartok was giving a handstand dare by toga boy, one where he had to dirnk a can while upside down. Now that would be quite the spectacle to watch, Vlithra though as she leaned forward in her seat to be able to see the bat boys performance just a bit better. Bartok was quick to get going and it was quickly clear that he was having a few issues. And it didn‘t take long for him to loose his posture as the can splashed in his face when opened. Vlithra had to commend him for his stubborness as he tried and almost failed again. He did manage to do it in the end and dared Ax, who had joined back during his soda perfomrance, to helpm him up. While this was more of a joke that Ax was nonetheless ready to ogblige he stuck to her being the next target for a dare.

Ax was dared to dance to a song with a partner of her choosing. After finding a rythm and started her own performance. She certainly wasn‘t bad at all when dancing. Vlithra could probably never dance to such music, she wasn‘t one for this type of stuff. Besides the only dancing the tigress had ever did was breakdanceg to breakneck fast beats, nothing elegant like this. While she and Bartok seemed obvious, Ax choose Erin instead. Vlithra a bit surprised raised and eyebrow to Erin and wetn on to watch as she danced along.

Coming to close with their performance Erin was quick to elect the next target for a dare.
“Apologies in advance, Vlithra.“ Those words were forboding for something that the tigress was definetly not going to enjoy. No, she‘d hate what she had to do. Putting her face close to either Bartok or Pyry for thirty seconds with eyes open was literally the worst dare that could have been given. Vlithras eyes weren‘t visible due to the shadow cast onto her eyes as she looked downward contemplating on this task. She was obviously angry, nigh furious even. It didn‘t take long for her semblance to make that clear as her eyes started glowing from the shadows staring daggers at the racoon girl. After a short moment she then stood up from her seat to her full heigth.

“I‘ll get you for that one.“ Vlithra said in a forboding and almost threatening voice while pointing at the racoon girl in question. The tigress, a bit too stubborn to let herself be slapped was willing to go through with it. She moved to Bartok to sit down next to him and grabbed the bat boy by the chin to pull him down and closer to her own face.
“Listen here! Try anything and I will make sure you throw up just as toga boy did, got it?!“ To emphasize she motioned her head over to Pyry and held her clenched fist up next to his face, green lightning crackling around her limb. Once that was done, her semblance deactivated and she let go of his head in front of her just before their noses would meet and looked at Bartok like she was holding the grudge of a lifetime. She does so for 30 seconds, counting in her head all the while being in a visibly bad mood. She was going to get Erin for this. Not necessarily even today, but eventually.

Once she was done counting in her head she waited a few more moments just to be safe, upon which Vlithra, without another word, pushed Bartok‘s upper body away from her before he'd get any funny ideas and went back to where she was previously sitting. She was so infuriated she still had to figure out who to choose and what to ask them. It took her moments to think of something after she sat down again. Maybe…

“Al. Since you like taking off like a rocket, I dare you to propell yourself as high as you possibly can.“ Vlithra pointed at Al with a sly little smirk. The fiery wolf had done this stunt two times already, so why not give it a third go, but this time to the maximum?

Seemed like people were starting to take off the kids gloves with these dares, Bartok's seemed especially hard, could she even do a hand or head stand ?
Al wasn't sure, she had not tried, her attention was drawn back to Bartok as he fell, dang, but he did not give up!
"You can do this, Bartok!"
Al cheered, seeing him finally find his grip and he actually did it!
She was about to start clapping to congratulate the bat Faunus but...he fell again, but well he did it!

And he got back up, well with help, but he was in a good enough mood to make jokes, so he had to be alright, hearing the next dare Al's ears stood straight at attention, Ax is gonna dance for them!
The song was nice, but Al was fully focused on Ax, having taken a crossed legged position in her seat, she had her head tilted, trying her best to emote her slight confusion, she thought Ax would take the opportunity to really show off, then it clicked though, she was being slow as she had to dance with someone!
Al's heart raced, she wasn't good at dancing, but if she wanted to learn from anyone it would be Ax!
Though she picked Erin, Al could not help but sight, yet watched the display with a smile, it was still a good show and Al gave a cordial clap as the two were finished.
Yet she froze as she heard what Erin dared Vlithra to do.

Why did people feel the need to poke the electric tigress with anger issues ?
As tense as it was, at least for Al, the dare was relatively tame, while she worried that one wrong move from Bartok would end up with him spending the rest of HIS party unconscious.

Breathing a breath of relief, Al looked to Vlithra to hear that it was her turn again, she saw that sly smirk and replied to it with a simple nod and grin of her own.
"You got it, boss lady!"
Al said jokingly as she hopped off from her seat, she looked around the beach for a while, for once actually seeming to think about what she was going to do as she scouted the sands for a good place to blast off.

She saw a largely empty field of sand near the water, a couple empty bottles and cans were all that decorated it for a good 100 feet or so, enough for no one to get hit, by the worst of this.
Al walked over to it, standing as close to the water as she could without actually touching it, she wouldn't want to scald anyone with a steam eruption.
Al took a deep breath, another deep breath as a gust of warm air hit the onlookers, and a third one, sparks were flying around Al as blue flames coated her arms and hands, crawling up her limbs to coat them further.
The air was now flickering around Al as clenched her fist, the flames coating her arms and legs concentrated into four tiny bright blue orbs, her hands were shaking trying to maintain them.
This is all she got...should she save some for her way back down ?
No, Vlithra asked for her full power, a request she would happily oblige.

With a mighty explosion, Al was shot into the air, a shockwave followed, not strong enough to knock anyone over but strong enough to drag sand with it, a dust cloud had appeared where Al launched herself.
Al herself was high up in the air, far above any building in Vale, even the tower of the school.

She laughed, loud and clear, as with a wide arc plummeted into the ocean.
She watched the fast approaching surface, falling head first while still laughing like a mad woman.
With a strong burst of flame, Al curved her decent, transforming all her momentum into a forward and upwards thrust, as she impacted with the water and using her feet she slid over the surface like a surfboard, riding her own momentum right back to the shore.
Where she continued laughing.
Until a familiar orange flicker could be seen and Al's aura shield collapsed, the wolf faunus just falling face-first into the sand while she still giggled to herself.

Groggily turning herself on her back, she finally stopped laughing.
"I dare ANYONE to top that! Especially you miss moody pants... do something awesome!"
She shouted, pointing at Erin's direction as she laughed again, for just a few seconds before her arms collapsed too.
"Please, someone...help me up first, though, my limbs feel like rubber."
The adrenaline had faded and Al's fatigued set in, man she felt tired after that.

Erin hadn't expected Vlithra to be pleased with the dare but she certainly hadn't expected the level of rage at which it was received. Her eyes widened in shock and her mouth opened in a small 'o'. She'd expected some stupid joke and maybe some funny faces but not full out anger and crackling air. Sure, both the guys were annoying but Bartok would never do anything to ruin the fun and Pyry seemed content to be good. She was going to apologize but figured it would make it worse so she just prepared herself for retribution.

Vlithra's dare for Al was actually pretty interesting. She loved the idea of getting a handle on everyone's semblances in case she ever had to fight them. It still bugged her that they were firing semblances off all willy-nilly, but there was nothing she could do about it: so she watched.

The idea of having a semblance that would let her launch into her air was always appealing, especially when she saw how much Al was having with it. She wished she could be more free-spirited at times. Cutting loose could be fun...

Then it was her turn again. Her tail twitched in surprise as she made her way over to help Al up and to a seat. What was she supposed to do? How could she top that while also making it known that she wanted peace with Vlithra? Of everyone here she wanted to get along with Vlithra the most; she seemed so cool.

What the hell was she supposed to do? She literally had no flashy skills and nothing she could do would top that. She frowned and her tail swished anxiously behind her. Would it be a slap if she failed to outdo Al? Technically she wouldn't accomplish the dare so it was highly likely.

Chewing on her lip she struggled to think of anything.

"I... Don't know if this will meet the conditions but it's the best I've got." She admittedly in a mix of frustration and anxiety. She couldn't think of anything to show Vlithra she was sorry, all she could do was try to save herself from a slap.

Walking to the water's edge she waded in until she was in just past her ankles. Closing her eyes she took a deep breath and tested out a standing, handless, corkscrew backflip. She was a bit off balance but it would do. One more deep breath and she started cranking out corkscrew backflip after corkscrew backflip along the shore. Every five flips or so she would spin just enough to go back the direction she came so she wouldn't end up too far from the group. After about a hundred flips she stopped, turned to the ocean, and began to do backflips back to the group. She landed next to the fire, lifted onto her tip toes, and raised one leg behind her to mimic the Arabesque pose from ballet, to show that her balance was unaffected even though she was horribly dizzy. Everything around her was multiplied by at least four and she felt like she was going to puke.

"If that works..." She swallowed to try to settle her stomach. "Then I dare Pyry to drink a concoction that the rest of the group puts together." Lowering her leg she shifted back to the flats of her feet and looked around. Someone had to make the call of if that worked or not.

Pyry tilted his head as he watched Bartok get ready. He had said handstand right? Obviously he didn't really know anyone here but the way Erin hovered and eyed Bartok and his ears made it obvious that they were sensitive and he wasn't one to go kick dirt - or sand - at someone to hurt them. It was supposed to be fun. He was going to say something about it, clarify his dare, but Bartok seemed like he was having a blast so he let it go.

Watching him go at it time and time again made Pyry laugh. It was hilarious watching his antics; they were going to be best friends one day.

After his eventual victory over the soda, he gave a wimp's dare to the song bird. He wasn't sure if he liked her or was just trying to be nice after the chaos of his own arrival, but it was weak. And she thought so too. She asked for a better dare and ended up dancing with Erin.

Both were absolutely stunning as they moved in time with one another to the rhythm. He wondered if either had any actual dancing skills or if their lack of said skills was the reason for the simplicity. Either way, he was absolutely enjoying the show.

The reaction that Vlithra gave to her dare was over the top to say the least. One thing he noted here was the ridiculously short fuses that almost all the girls seemed to have. It was just a game and not even one that involved any sort of touching - at least not yet. How people became so touchy was beyond him, and made him concerned about who he'd be around while at Beacon. He really hoped they could actually keep their cool in the heat of battle: especially with other humans. That level of uncontrolled emotion was begging for unnecessary complications.

Like Erin said, he wasn't about to stir the pot as the party crasher. He would have been good. He wondered again if his sparks would shoot out like hers if he wanted them too. He was a close combat fighter with absolutely no long range accuracy so he never tried. Maybe he would in a controlled area.

The dare to Al sounded cool but his eyesight kind of got in the way of actually watching it. Sounded like things were picking up momentum and fun though. He watched the direction she shot off in but didn't try to strain to see. He'd need his glasses and he didn't exactly carry them around waiting to ruin his image. Plus, if he didn't draw attention to his weakness no one would know about it.

Erin was next, how many times had she gone now? It felt like more than the rest of them. Or maybe it just felt that way because he could not stop staring at her.

She walked to the edge of the shore and began a long series of spinning flips - handless no less! - before flipping back to the group and daring him to drink a random mix of stuff chosen by the other members.

Hot dog chunks, nose soda, meat juice from the grill, ocean water... His nose wrinkled in disgust. It was by no means a hard dare, but he would get a lot more pleasure watching someone else choke that hot mess down. So, despite it making him the first one to pass and hitting his pride a bit, he decided it was not worth the foul taste. Without losing an ounce of confidence or his cocky attitude he shook his head. "Not a chance beautiful. The only drinks going in this mouth are approved but the FDA. I accept the slap of anyone willing to down that chunky mess."

Al was tired, so tired, she was happy that Vlithra had taken up her plea to help her stand, as she was being taken over to her seat she could see Erin doing the many, many backflips and while she was still exhausted her jaw dropped at the acrobatic display of pure awesomeness.
She even struck a pose after all those flips and didn't so much as budge.
"WOO-HOO! Way to go, Erin!"
She trusted her arm upwards as a way to applaud her, but it only came out as her flopping her arm about like a wet noodle, which was probably not healthy.

Erin's bet to Pyry seemed pretty do-able, she herself just pointed at the remaining grill juice and let it be, she couldn't wait for his reaction to the mix that was put together.
A devilish little smile snuck itself on her face, while she was finally brought to sit down, which finally let her relax just a bit.
Then he refused,

Of course, the toga wearing playboy would take any opportunity to act smug, she rolled her eyes under her mask.
Even though she had just sat down, Al got back up, she shook the tiredness off herself and took a few shaky steps over to Pyry.
"Give it here."
She grabbed the drink, as roughly as she could, just to get her point across, turning away from Pyry and the group she pulled up her mask enough for her then ex the concoction.
She shivered, her ears and tail standing rigid, ugh it was GROSS!
This was so bad, but she couldn't lose her lack of a face, maybe Pyry was right, and it was worth taking the slap, NO!
Al kept gulping down the mixture, she was too stubborn to give up to some stupid salt water and a half-eaten hot dog!
With a stern look on her face she kept at it.
"Pfah!"
She coughed as she tossed the cup aside, still keeping her mouth exposed as she grinned at Pyry and walked over to him.
She raised her hand, all the muscle in her arm tensed and swung towards his face, yet stopped just an inch before and gave him a gentle tap to his cheek.
"Get a grip, dude."
She grinned at him one last time, then pulled her mask down and walked back to her seat and sat down, she really needed a break after her two stunts in a row, her aura was drained and so was her appetite, but she should probably get something to wash down that mixture.
"Hey Vlithra can you grab me one of those sodas ?"

As she returned to her seat, Al thought for a bit, wait was it her turn again to dare someone ?
Who had not been dared that much, and what would she even ask them ?
But Al got sidetracked as her body started to shake a little, maybe drinking that stuff after just blowing out all her Aura was not a good idea, she actually felt horrible at this point, but she was not gonna let the others know.
Al grabbed her hoodie, as without her semblance active, the fire had extinguished, so it was getting a little chilly for her, everyone else would probably be fine, but Al had also just soaked herself.
"Sorry, but I'm out."
Al declared as she wrapped her hoodie around herself.
"Out of aura and ideas, that is."
Man she hated to be a party pooper, especially since this was her first real party she went too, but she really was growing tired, her ears were even losing tension as one of them was just lazily laying on top of her head now.
"Sorry, just really exhausted, can we do something else ?"[/color}
She asked Bartok, with an embarrassed tone in her voice, she'd really hate for her to be the party pooper.

Bartok's head bobbed left and right as the song went on, his large ears lazily following his head. It was a nice upbeat dance number, and he was made even more glad when Ax chose Erin as her dance partner. He just soaked in the moment, listening to the two girls dance to the music until it unfortunately came to an end. He was tempted to make it play over again, but Erin was already daring Vlithra. And... a spicy dare at that.

Bartok was rubbing his hands together with a smug grin on his face when Vlithra grabbed his chin and threatened him with violence. He heard the crackle of lightning and he knew very well that she would uphold her end. Slowly he nodded and she put the fist down. He couldn't see the scowl she was giving him, but could feel in that strange way just how close Vlithra was to him. For a long moment he wondered if a quick kiss would be worth vomiting up all that soda he drank earlier. He continued to ponder it until he breathed in through his nose, then as his ears twitched, he sniffed, careful not to move his head any closer, lest he had her fist hitting his spine through his stomach.

"Not trying anything but..." He took a deeper breath in through his nose. "You smell really good." He said quieter, not trying to make it a big thing despite the probable huge attention on them both.

Right at the 30 second mark he was pushed away and Bartok accepted it, falling backwards onto the sand before getting back onto his seat.

A few more dares went by, namely a seemingly amazing display from Erin. Was she doing flips? There was a lot of movement happening at the water's edge, and wished he had sight like everyone else. Al cheered her on though, so that was good.

Then Pyry was dared to drink a horrible drink. That was a thing. But Al was the one who ended up drinking it. Gutsy girl. And shortly after when Al was saying she was done, he couldn't blame her. She had been going all out and ended it with a gut-melting drink that could not make her feel good. And with her expending her Aura to it's limits, the campfire went out. He was feeling the cool night air really set in now with the late hour, and Bartok figured that perhaps the party had lived it's purpose.

"Yeah, we can do something else." He paused and turned his head around as if he was looking at everybody. He wasn't, but it was for the effect of people thinking he was examining them, which he was but not through sight. They all sounded tired. Labored or deep breaths, less excited shifting, slowly blinking. "We can start packing up if everyone is pretty tuckered out for the night. If someone wants to help me pack up all this food and stuff, we can get going."

It was a rather pleasant surprise for Vlithra that Bartok, for once, didn‘t try any funny business when she did the dare with him. She almost wanted to believe that her threat towards him actually worked, but that was quickly debunked when he still uttered some annoying tid bits about the tigresses smell. She didn‘t deter him one bit, he liked how she smelled even which was… weird all things considered.

As Vlithra was sitting in her seat waiting for Al to fullfill her dare, she took a look around to see how the others had reacted to what just happened. The mood became more tense than she had anticipated. She had to wonder wether or not she was being to harsh, especially with Erin in this case. She probably didn‘t mean any harm, but still… if there was a type of man the tigress absolutely couldn‘t stand it was the flirty types, like Bartok and Pyry who had no sense for personal space… or discretion as a matter of fact. They always found the dumbest ways to hit on others and that attitude really wasn‘t welcome in the business environment that Vlithra was used to.

For now Vlithra was leaning back in her seat with one leg crossed over her other as she watched Al prepare for take off… in a literal sense even. She shot into the sky like a rocket engine going max power from the start. It was quite the display, the kind the tigress was hoping for when she uttered this dare for the fiery wolf. And the landing was more smooth than she had expected. Aside from planting her head face first into the sand of course. It was only right when Vlithra got up and gave Al a hand in getting back into her seat. “I‘d say you have more than just surpassed my expectations there.“

While that was going Erin managed to pull something incredible herself when she was dared to one up the fiery wolf. The way Erin managed to pull so many corkscrew backflips seemingly without any trouble was a sight to behold. Afterwards she even flawlessly held a pose, it was a very impressive level of acrobatic skill that she demonstrated, somthing the tigress made a mental footnote to.

The Pyry was dared to… drink one of the most horrible concoctions that Vlithra could have imagined. She wasn‘t even surprised that toga boy declined as fast as he did, because Vlithra would have probably done the same. However in spite of her freshly depleted Aura, Al got up, snatched the drink and exed it. Seems like the mask wasn‘t the only thing out of steel with this wolf faunus. This warrants a soda to flush the system and the tigress wasn‘t hesitant to provide when asked. “Sure, here you go.“

With the fire out, due to Al being exhaused, it was getting a bit colder now. And with the cold came the end to the truth and slap game. It was no wonder Bartok was talking about packing up for the day, because it had been an eventful one. One thing Vlithra knew for sure was that she left quite the impression on the others during this party. Maybe she was too tense and needed to relax more often. “Yeah, that sounds about right. It‘s been quite the day.“ The tigress sighed as she moved to her bag, stuffing her towels into the bag and closing the zipper. “I can help you out… a bit. That‘s the least I could do since I've been taking shots at you the entire day.“

Erin blushed lightly and nodded her appreciation at the reaction to her many jumps. She wasn't a showman, in fact she preferred to end things as quickly as possible, but it was nice to get some praise for her efforts.

Pyry really ground Erin's gears. It wasn't necessary the flirting that bothered her though, it was more that it felt like he was oddly similar to Bartok and she could only handle one frustration in her life. Suffice it to say, she was more than a little bummed that he passed on that God awful concoction the group had made, but the slap was slightly satisfying.

With everyone simmering down and readying to leave she got up and started packing things up with the grace of a trained busgirl. She'd learned a lot of about efficiency from her mom and decided to use her skills to make things easier for everyone.

"Want help carrying things back?" She asked Bartok in particular because she wasn't too sure what her friend status with everyone else was and didn't want to invite herself and make things awkward.
There is no such thing as justice, the best that we can hope for is revenge
