Training Grounds

In the center of the island, a large open area, roughly 100 meters round, stands as training grounds for the students of Coral Springs High. Bleachers on one side to sit have been erected by the faculty. A few pillars to mark each school can hold a flame atop it should it be needed at night. A mix of dirt and sand, any number of activities take place here. A few trails meander off from the training grounds and go around the island itself.

With Tabitha's thing today there is lots of activity in certain parts off the island, namely the beach area. Rain volunteered to help and helping she is. Not with heavy lifting though. She is in charge of the beverages. there are various cases of sodas which the is opening up and putting into coolers so ice can be dumped on the later. She is doing this in the bleacher area,and is using the lowest bench as a makeshift table.

Thankfully Besa listened yesterday and remembered where everyone said they would be. The teen is back in one of Sky's hand me down tees, although it's not a super goth one. Just grey. Seeing his target he hurries forward, "Rain!" IF/when she looks up he offers a warm smile, "How are you this morning?'

The calling of her name has the girl turning around and looking for the caller. "Morning Besa." she greets with a welcoming smile of her own. Rain's gaze goes to the familiar shirt "You and Sky patch things up then?" she probably already knows the answer to that, but it is still polite to ask.

Besa makes a small face and then shrugs, "It will take time…" Besa's still cautious. He sits down on the other side of the color, peering inside. "He said something strange yesterday. And then told me I should come ask you." So here he is! "He said that you would not be happy if I was friends with Tabitha." Dark eyes rise to meet her, confused.

Rain nods, wishing this whole fight thing was over already. She did what she could and that didn't turn out as she'd hoped. Yes, that is very confusing to her too. "Why would you being friends with Tabitha make me unhappy?" she doesn't get it either. "Did he say anything else?" she doesn't sit just yet, just looks at Besa with a similarly confused expression.

Her confusion just adds to his and he sighs, looking down t his hands, "He said that it would make you think I liked Tabitha more, and that would make you sad. Something about me being taken somewhere?" No of it made any sense to the teen.

A case of soda has been broken into and is being added to the cooler as she listens. Rain pauses though and this added information has her looking thoughtful a moment. "That just…" she doesn't finish the thought, and gets a bit of a far off look in her eyes for a few moments. "Oh?…Oh!…Ohhhhhh." her eyes focus once more on Besa, cheeks flushing slightly "My brother is being weird." well that is a given "He thinks either you have a crush on me or I have one on you. He is still asleep so it is hard for me to say which it is." at 14 that sorta subject is just a bit embarrassing, but she gets it out.

Besa's head tilts, not sure what crush means. He seems a bit worried though, Rain is suddenly flushing. Tabitha did that too, maybe there's a sickness going around school! "Are you well?" He didn't fall on her at any point, or her on him, so no one was crushed.

It doesn't take Rain more than a few seconds to realize that Besa has no idea what she is talking about. "I'm fine. This is just..awkward?" yes that is a good word for it. "Crush…liking someone…like liking them, you know to like someone beyond," beat for a breath "friendship."

Why can't the twins just say what they mean, instead of dancing around. Besa frowns, trying to piece together what Sky said and now Rain, "Do you mean courting someone?"

"Courting?" Rain says the word as if she has ever heard it used verbally in that way before. And she hasn't outside books and movies. "Yes sort of. But without the implication of marrying the person. Here we call it dating. Sometimes it is serious, sometimes fun…always complicated." isn't everything though.

Oh. Besa blinks, and then looks at Rain like he's trying to decide how to proceed. Courting without intent seems foolish. "I can not cour-date." The Egyptian teen shifts uncomfortably, now his cheeks are flushing and he looks down at the cans of soda. "That is forbidden. I am sorry." Maybe he's assuming Sky was right?

Rain doesn't seem overly upset by his statement of not being able to date. She finds it more strange than anything at the moment. Who knows how she will feel about that over time though. "Forbidden by the priests?" yeah she knows about that, at least some of it.

Besa nods, reaching down to poke at one of the cans. "Yes." He's not surprised, he assumes everything one twin knows, the other knows too. To be honest, he wasn't even thinking about courting anyone , the idea so foreign to him. He takes a deep breath and smiles, looking up, "Would you like help with the drinks?" Best to just not think about it.

That is of course concerning, but Rain puts on a smile and nods at the offer, "Please. So many sodas, and I don't want to suffer the paper cuts alone." she shoves some of the cases toward him so they can get the job done faster by working together.
