It isn't long before the five of them have moved their bags inside and found their places on the sofa. Amy is sitting on the right armrest, checking for signal once again.
Moira is next to her, on the couch, holding a glass of water. She has her feet up so that there's only room for one more person on the somewhat large sofa.
And that person is Mickey, who is on the left end of the couch waiting for the others to settle in.
Natsuki is in the recliner curled up under a very thick and somewhat dusty blanket. On the small coffee table in front of her is a tray of twelve cupcakes decorated to look like little cats.
Eric is on the floor, leaning on the couch. He reaches for a cupcake.
Natsuki grins at him and takes one of her own. They have little frosting whiskers and tiny chocolate ears.
Moira grabs two and passes one to Amy. "So are we gonna play Truth or Dare?"
Mickey snags a cupcake and bites into it. "This is good." Covering his mouth, he adds, "Yeah. Eric, truth or dare?"
"Did you really have sex with that girl from the swim team you were telling me about?"
"You've got a girlfriend? Ooh, do tell."
"Starting off with the hard ones, I guess." Eric laughs nervously. "Well, ah, no. We made out but I didn't have sex with, ah, her."
He seems very nervous. Perhaps there is more to the story.
If there is, Amy will be sure to get it out of him. At length. As soon as it's her turn to ask a question.
Oh, right. "Natsuki, truth or dare."
"What's the most embarrassing thing you've ever done?"
"Oh god, I don't know, it's not like I keep track of these things." She sighs. "Um, when I was ten I threw up all over my crush's shoes?"
"Who was your crush?"
"Hey, you guys already asked your question! It's my turn now!" She turns to Amy. "Amy- truth or dare?"
"I don't have any good dares... okay, I dare you to do a cartwheel."
Amy slides off of the couch, moves out of everyone's way, and does a cartwheel. It's not perfect, but it's more than passable.
"Eric, truth or dare."
"Mickey already asked him! You've got to finish the round." Moira objects.
"No, it's cool. She's got that look in her eyes, this is gonna be good." Mickey tells her quietly.
Moira rolls her eyes but does not object again.
"Ah, dare?" Eric asks.
