Well its not as awkward as it could be, but there is still some awkwardness between certain members of the group. Thankfully there is a parade to distact from that. And thanks to connections of the Masters twins, they got a great spot to watch the parade. For the moment it is outside on a nice corner, right in front. Later when and if they get to cold they can move indoors to the penthouse and watch from the balcony. Now they warm drinks are needed so the girls volunteer to get them giving the two boys some guy time.

Rain is dressed as fashionably as ever, though warm, with a cute knit beanie over her hair, which for once is free of braid or pony tail so the pale blond locks fall over shoulders and down her back. There are plenty of coffee places to choose from, all relatively busy thanks to the parade. "Let's just go to that one." Rain suggests pointing to one not to far from thier view spot, since getting through the parade crowd is going to be a feat in itself.

There was a couple of times where Charlotte wanted to take flight for a better view, but she's behaved herself. The girl is dressed similarly to Rain, though she's wearing a beret on top of her head, to match her comfortable sweater, jeans, and coat and gloves. When Rain suggests splitting for for a moment, the young woman agrees easily.

She offers a smile at Rain's suggestion and nods as she follows. "There are many good spirits today." she offers, feeling the energy and vibe of the crowd, and trying not to focus on the police officers that are on the watch for any trouble as she folds her hands behind her back. "I have never seen so many balloons at a parade!"

"The holiday spirit is starting to take hold." Rain tells Charlotte "This will be your first Thanksgiving, right?" she begins to politely push her way through the spectators to the coffee shop. "You are still okay spending it with us right?" she is been feeling a lot of worry today, about that and strangely a lot of it is focused on Besa, but she has gotten good at hiding it, on the surface she is usual Rain, low key, and abit serious, but not a party pooper.

"It is, oui." Charlotte responds to the spirit and Thanksgiving questions at the same time, following after Rain before she opens the door for the younger girl and follows and can sense the worry coming off of her, no matter how much she tries to hide it. "You are worried?" she asks quietly, now that they are apart from the others. "I spoke with Schyuler, after we texted." she starts quietly. "I do not know if I am ready to have a boyfriend, but I did say I would be willing to spend time with him?"

Rain just glances sidelong at Charlotte as she passes into the coffee shop. "He told me all about it." she gets into line, glad to be out of the cold for a few minutes "That's very mature of you." she rubs her gloved hands together as she looks at the drink menu board. It sounds as if she isn't fond of the idea but she says nothing of it. "I can't wait to get home and finally relax…well as much as the family will let me." which is another worry, which she totally avoided talking about.

"He told me a little about the thing you guys do for powers." Charlotte says and then smiles a little. "Some of it is maturity, some of it's not. You're my best friend, Rain." she admits as she glances down at her hands before moving for her purse. "And I know your brother likes me. But I don't want to do something where he and I don't get along, and we stop being friends.

"He told me a little about the thing you guys do for powers." Charlotte says and then smiles a little. "Some of it is maturity, some of it's not. You're my best friend, Rain." she admits as she glances down at her hands before moving for her purse. "And I know your brother likes me. But I don't want to do something where he and I don't get along, and we stop being friends." she explains as she fishes out her wallet. "You will let me buy for a change?" she asks with a wink. "You have done so much, and I want to do something in return, even if it is small."

The mention of that brings up more of the worry, this time it shows a little "The Quest." she was starting to take out her own wallet, but then puts it away with a nod and a brief smile "Thanks." there is a sigh "I don't want to talk about that." her brother and Charlotte, or particularly the Quest either but she will do the latter a bit "I will warn you, my family is not happy with me right now because my refusal to do the Quest.'" wow, there is so rebel in the goody-two shoes Athenian. "My parents and siblings will be nice and behave, but my other relatives might not."

"I think it is silly." Charlotte finds herself rebelling right with Rain. "It is not as if your powers, if you have them, will not eventually manifest themselves." she points out. "Mine showed up when I wasn't ready for them." Her fingers reach up and touches the necklace of coins around her neck and she draws out a breath. "Part of me wants to strip myself of my powers.. and just.. never go home." she admits quietly. "It's so much pressure. But I know it is my responsibility to my nation."

Rain has a sudden feeling of relief wash over her that finally someone is on her side in this matter "Exactly!" she hooks her arm with Charlotte and gives a squeeze. "That's what I keep telling them. Sky supports my decision, but he would rather I go on a Quest to get my powers." the relief is short-lived though as the quest talk goes on. The thought of the Quest of getting powers actually terrifies her, but over the months she has learned to hide that as well. What is it with the Masters twins and their hiding of feelings.

It really is annoying, especially when there's an empath that can feel the conflict and tries her best not to address it. Giving her friend a squeeze in return, Charlotte sets her money down on the counter to pay for the drinks. "How do they know that you being in a school full of powered beings is /not/ a Quest?" she points out with a smile as she shakes her head. "It is hard to follow a tradition." She, of all, should really know, if one considers all of her of 'past' incarnations.

"That's the argument Sky and I gave my parents. They didn't want me going to Coral since I have no powers." and honestly she didn't want to either. She is only there for her brother "They had to have a lot of meetings and throw some money around to get me an admission. They think it is more trouble than it was worth, but they were willing to entertain the idea of it being a Quest…even if a bit non-traditional." Rain doesn't see it as a Quest at all "I think in most cases powers show up when you aren't ready. So in that you are normal."

"I know. I just.. I never knew I was the one that would be… who I am, you know?" Charlotte asks and laughs. "It'd be so much easier if you were born and they handed you a little card, saying 'this is what you're gonna be'." She picks up hers and Sky's drinks, for Rain to get the other two. "I will be by your side if there is to be an argument. You know, friends and all that." She winks at the younger girl as she starts to head towards the door.

"Well I guess I was lucky in that way. I was raised with the idea that one day I will have powers and that I might have to risk my life to get them…" Rain picks up the other two drinks, immediately taking a sip of her tea "But then Sky went on his…" and that is where the trauma stems from for her. "But thanks, more friends at my back will help…me at least. You won't get praise for it though." she heads to the door, peering out the windows "Look, it’s the Scooby Doo balloon."

"Not looking for praise. Looking to being there for my friend." Charlotte says, a little frown coming to her lips as she glances at the balloon and giggles. "One I recognize!" she says as she takes a drink from her hot chocolate. "So.. you and your brother share a bond and all.. can you tell me what he wants for Christmas?"

Rain nods "Best friend." she corrects, confirming it with the other girl "There will be more you recognize later." she says with a laugh, her worries and concerns, not going away, but fading into the background at least. "Of course I can. It's hard shopping for him though. He always knows what I get him as soon as I decide." it’s quite annoying "This year I am going to give Besa a list and money and he will pick something from me. I won't know what it is, and Sky will hopefully be nice and not mentally pry."

"You know.. he's reluctant to go picking in my mind." Charlotte winks. "I threatened him once that I'd think of my underwear and he's been reluctant since." she says with a playful hint of pride. "But Besa's probably a better bet. He knows him better, and I'm new to this all. Plus, if I'm supposed to be a could-be girlfriend, it would be cruel to help his sister, non?" she says as she nods in agreement. "Best friend." she says easily.

That brings more laughter "Underwear…I'll have to try that one. I usually use Maroon-5 songs. He hates that group." and Rain loves them, so it works out well. Pushing the door open with her hip the younger girl heads back out into the cold "Now to try to get through this crowd without spilling the drinks on ourselves or anyone else."
