Justin Kim & Milo Rodriguez:
Milo and Justin were greeted by the younger Turner, whose energy made it impossible not to smile. "Found it at a garage sale. It looked like fun," Milo said before returning the hug as well as he could with only one free arm. "Consider it a peace offering for being late again."
Justin rolled his eyes. "Yeah, even though I had to pay for it despite the fact that you're the only reason why I'm ever late," he muttered under his breath. He smiled again as Amy gave him his hug. "Good to see you too, Ams."
They enter the Turner residence and easily found their way to the living room. "We're here!" Milo sang as loudly as he could. They weren't surprise to see that everyone was already there, but Milo's stomach couldn't help but do a flip when he saw Penelope. They had been friends for a long time, but lately, he hasn't been able to shake the thought of her out of his head. He was suddenly regretting carrying the box as Justin got a proper hug while he only got that awkward pat on the back. "It's some board game I found at a garage sale. I figured it would be fun to try it out," he said as calmly as he could. He prayed that she couldn't hear his heart beating out of his chest.
"Or we could just watch a movie on Netflix instead," Justin suggested since he still had a bad feeling about that game.
"Don't be a party pooper," Milo teased while putting the box on the table. "It'd be a big waste of your money anyhow if we don't play it, right?"
Unfortunately for Justin, Milo did have a good point. Beside, it was just a board game... what was the worst that could happen?
Isabel felt a bit better after talking to Amy. The girl was young, but had a very comforting aura around her that Isabel appreciated very much. And now that Penny was here, she doesn't have to worry about awkwardly being left alone with Adrian.
Isabel smiled slightly as Penny had Adrian serve out the drinks. Some things will never change and she was grateful for that. "Thank you," she said softly as she grabbed one of the cups now filled with Amy's lemonade. She felt herself starting to relax when Amy returned with the two troublemakers. "Justin, Milo," she nodded to acknowledge their presence. Unlike Adrian, Isabel could guess which of the two boys Amy had fancied. Also, she was not one to miss Milo's newfound infatuation with their dear friend, Penny. She hid her smile by pretending to take another sip of lemonade. She remembered what it was like to be in high school and to have silly crushes. When she accidentally looked at Adrian, she realized the feeling was closer to her than she realized.
She began to focus her attention elsewhere. When Penny pointed it out, Isabel also became curious about the box in Milo's hand. The old etchings on it was intricate and fascinating. She grabbed the box that Milo had just placed on the table to examine it more closely. "Interesting..." she thought aloud. "I'm always down to play old, indie board games." Ultimately, it was up to everyone in the group if they were going to play. Or at least, if a majority of the group agreed to play. They did live in a world of democracy after all.
