Allan easily leaped to spike the ball down just over the net. Martha dove to bounce it back and Allan struck it again for the sand while Martha was still in the dust. It Love couldn't get to the ball, it was his score. "Anything? As in anything anything? No sex, no dating, not even a kiss?" John flicked his tail out to fetch her inner tube for her. "If that's the case, I can give you the full experience. We can just walk down the beach for a bit and see what interests us on the piers." There were tons of shops and restaurants on the piers, all of them prime date material. "I'm not trapped. We live in symbiosis. Something a parasite such as you could not understand." The Shattered One continued to speak through Jun's mouth. "Does it give you the satisfaction you seek to know she desires you? She clamors for me to simply let her lips touch yours from deep within me even now." The Shattered One looked annoyed at this. Apparently Jun was no happy with the sudden change in control.
Loveline stretched her arms, blocking the strike. An easy point! Except that Clarissa suddenly appeared and hit the ball back over the net. She was so fast! The strangest part was she didn't even move her legs.
The sudden downpour made Erin cover her eyes with her arm, trying to keep the salt water out of them. She felt someone's body bounce off her's, the rain now subsiding so that she could see...Marceline and a guy she didn't even know. Great...this situation just turned into a mess. "Great...well it looks like you two know each other, soooooo...I'll just uh..." Erin trailed off as she grabbed her tablet and stood up, ready to leave Marceline and Chase to their devices. She wasn't about to be roped into a fight between what seemed like ex lovers.
Elyssa looked with a small bit of disgust at Becky tossing away the clothing, looking away from the hairy woman until she was out of sight. Happy that she was now gone, Elyssa looked at Alexis with a grin. "I know, right?! I liked that and the dance battle most." Remembering something, Elyssa thinks about brining it up for a moment...and shrugs her shoulders. "By the way...I wasn't going to ask back in the Ruin...but I noticed how that other girl that looked like you seemed a bit...annoyed by you. What's up with that, if you don't mind saying?"
Aw, dammit! They were so good! Martha missed the ball as it was blown into the sand by Allan. "How did you do that!?" She yelled before running off to grab the ball. "Smith told me I have to relax and sent me here so yeah, I guess a mission." Marceline sighed and got off of Erin. She looked away from Chase deliberately to see Eri. "Oh. Uh, hi. You've met Erin I see." She looked desperately for an escape. She couldn't find anything in sight that would distract them. Instead, she cast about in her mind and found gold. Something Cosmina had told her about. "Look, I'm sorry. For the rudeness earlier, but also cause you two really seemed to be getting along. Really sorry to interrupt your conversation." She blinked at Erin in a way that made it clear she was winking, even if she only had one eye. "Amelia, my sister? I don't know what her deal is. She doesn't like our mom and her dad got custody of her as a kid, but I don't know any of the details. She acts like I should just know." Alexis finished folding the clothes and put them in her backpack.
Fumi had to suppress the desire to stick her tongue out of her mouth at the mere idea of being with John so quickly, but if she wanted him to believe her, she’d have to play the part...Besides, if was intending to take her on a ‘date’, she could see where he possibly kept his money or valuables on him this way! Since he had already shown that he took plenty to bed with him, if he didn’t have it on him it was probably in his room anyways; this just gave Fumi a way to narrow down her options. With a small nod of approval, Fumi waited for John to guide her. Unfortunately for John, Fumi’s intentions weren’t as innocent as she looked.
“She’s so adorable!” Amai fawned while a heated blush worked its way on her face, her hands clutching to her cheeks as she swooned slightly at the way The Shattered One worded it; clamoring! How dire! “Fantastic, how about you let me give her what she wants then?” Her smile was fiendish and her entire body felt like it was ringing with excitement at the idea of having possibly picked up such an amazing slave here. She would love nothing more than to teach Jun the truth of love, the depth of affection, the never-ending delight of being so hopelessly enamored to the very last breath! Amai’s breath was huffing slightly as she leaned in close to the Shattered One, but unlike when it was simply Jun, Amai made it clear that she had no intention of touching the demon currently in control. “Come on out Jun, I’ll show you what a real lover is like!!”
Seemed whoever this man was knew Marceline and just seeing it make her uncomfortable did give Eri some small hint of satisfaction. So was this the ex she was so huffy about earlier? “Hmph.” The petulant idol was still sour over Marceline it seemed. Despite her adult form, Eri still wasn’t much better than a kid at times; living a life of luxury and adoration always caused her to forget what it felt like to not be liked...and she didn’t like it too much!! With her arms crossed again beneath her chest, Eri turned her head a little too dramatically to the side to show she wasn’t taking part in this phony apology! “You can’t fool me with your honeyed words!” Eri made her way to Erin when she stood up, looping her arm through the other girl’s and holding it close. “That wave didn’t ruin your tablet, right Erin? Your drawing was so cute...it’d be a shame if something ruined it!” Eri made a point to seem more distant to avoid Marceline’s piggybacking away from the situation, but she figured that being bratty wasn’t too good of an impression...so she decided to at least introduce herself to the other party in the vicinity, who seemed a bit...odd. Obviously people here weren’t human, but he looked more human than some creatures she’d met here today. “Ah, sorry about that...you make quite the entrance; my name’s Eri. It’s...good to meet you? I suppose!” She avoided using her last name again and seemed optimistic enough while still clutching to Erin’s arm.
John patted his sides and realized he had nowhere for cash. "Hm. Actually, better make a pit stop at my room first. You want to go back to yours too?" He expanded his wings again, wrapping them around Fumi. They were warm and strikingly soft, but also damp. "I can get us there in no time." The Shattered One glared. "A real lover? One who will enslave her mind and drain her body to leave her in a ditch? Jun seeks somebody to grow old with, someone who will accept her where the world does not. You are not that person." The demon tilted its head. "If it will make you release me, I can give you the satisfaction you seek. This body will come to no harm from you while I command it." It puckered Jun's lips, showing about as competent a kiss as Jun herself could muster.

Chase's raises an eyebrow at Eri's introduction and turns his attention to Marceline for a brief second wondering if she talked about him before to this...what exactly is she? Again he is puzzled by the unknown existence of this woman. "Chase's the name," he said with no emotion. "Eri, I hope you don't get offended by me asking this," he stated off but didn't truly care so long as he gets his answer," But could you tell me a bit about yourself. Mostly about your claim to the hidden world. I never sense anyone exactly like you before, and thats a pretty rare thing at this point for me." One look into his eyes could pretty much confirm his experience. After spending decades of dealing with the weirdest and most dangerous aspects of this world and beyond, there just exists a certain expression of his unprofessional expertise whenever he wishes to express his unwanted experience with the hidden world.
"I'm simply superior to you. But do not let that discourage you. I want to beat you at your best." Clarissa said bluntly as she moved back into position, again without moving her legs. What did move was the sand below her. She was being carried by the sand itself?
"Don't be so cocky! When we win, I'm so rubbing it in your face, kid!" Love said, pushing the ball over to their side.
Clarissa didn't even dignify that with a response. She picked up the ball and served.
Fumi shook her head no and seemed hesitant to sign beneath the cover of John's strange wings. Despite their previous appearance, it was just a little disorienting when they appeared out of nowhere..."I'm fine with just waiting in your room, I have mine stored somewhere." "Monogamists and their silly, unrealistic love expectations.~" Amai signed with disappointment at the Shattered One's explanation of what Jun wanted. It just wasn't within the realm of possibility to Amai. Finding just one person, when there were sooooo many to taste and play with? How boring! No wonder Jun hadn't found a man... Yet as the Shattered One offered itself to Amai, her face was almost deadpan as she twirled her hair with disinterest around her finger. "Nah, I don't play with demons...you're all so boring. Now, if you let me play with specifically Jun...I'd be more than happy to take that first kiss of hers.~" Eri seemed a bit dumbfounded that he'd just outright asked her what she was. Her face heated slightly in embarrassment of being put so blatantly on the spot and she felt herself stuttering as she tried to squirm her way out of admitting what she was; the less people knew about her, the less of a danger she had at being outed to the public that so widely recognized her in her home country. "Th-that's...uh, it's not really important! P-Pretty boring, haha...." She felt like she was squirming under the look he was giving her, she didn't want to tell Chase, or anyone here really what she was. Just thinking of that volatile information getting out made her queasy...she'd had it happened before a century ago and hated the years of waiting she had to do after while hiding out from the public...being immortal had its perks, but regardless time always passed slowly when you wait out almost a sheer century. "I-I just know about the Hidden World thanks to my upbringing is all, I'm nothing fancy."
Erin was confused by Marceline's statement about them getting along, not knowing that Marceline was trying to wink because...Marceline only had one eye and it just looked like a weird blink. She was about to ask what she meant...until Eri ran up and locked her arm through her own! What was she doing?! Her arm was pressing up against this cute person's chest! Luckily, the brief moment where Erin's face got a little red was distracted by Chase blatantly asking what Eri was, clearly making her uncomfortable at the question. Uh...what should she do here?! "A-and this is a Hidden World resort...so everyone is welcome. We uh...don't discriminate." Since the topic changed, Erin didn't respond to the inquiry about her tablet's condition...which fortunately was still fine.
"Just...know?" Elyssa asked, confused. By the sound of the situation, Elyssa thought that perhaps Alexis's mother did something to either Amelia or Amelia's father, and that Amelia now has a grudge against her mother. But that was pure speculation, Elyssa thought it wasn't her place to pry into sensitive family issues. "Well...I hope it all works out between you guys! So, did you come here with anyone besides your...furry friend?"
"You are not superior. You're just a haughty jerk! I hate that!" Martha launched herself for the ball again, hitting it harder than ever before. It blew past Allan's head like a meteor, embedding itself into the ground. "Let's see how superior you are when I'm hitting these balls faster than you can move!" Martha smiled as she landed. John scooped Fumi up again. "Alright then. Hold tight." John again took off, flying straight up before gliding down at the hotel. He landed on a balcony and set Fumi gently in a sun chair. "You want to wait out here? I'll be changing." He rummaged in a plant pot on the balcony and found the key he had left for himself. "If you go all the way through with this, you'll see eventually, but if you're not comfortable with it I'll close the curtains." Without the curtains, the glass door gave an easy view into the room. It seemed normal, with a bed across from a dresser, John's suitcase at the base of the dresser. Marceline snorted as Erin's expression when Eri hooked arms with her. Cosmina was totally right about the redhead. "Chase, don't be a dick. The lady doesn't have to tell you who she is. We're all here to relax." She lay down in the chair abandoned by Erin. Ah, it was still warm. Nice. She adjusted her wet eyepatch and waved a little at the curly haired girl, encouraging her to make a move. Alexis dimly shrugged. She wanted to be friends with her sister, but Amelia wouldn't let her. "Yeah, I came with my family. Not sure where Mom and Dad are, but my sister Ashlea is down by the pool. Aiden I'm also not sure on. Probably with my parents. What about you?" Alexis asked, curious about the rest of Elyssa's family.
"Of course I know what haughty means!" Martha was glad she used that word properly. She had honestly just been lucky. She didn't know many words. "This time I'll serve it past you!" She yelled as Clarissa, mighty legs launching her straight up 30 feet so Clarissa would have to look into the sun to see her. She slammed the ball down with all her might at the edge of the court.
Using the brim of her hat as protection from the sun, Clarissa managed to look up enough to see Martha's silhouette. "I won't let you!" She leapt into the air, too. When the ball got close enough, she smacked it down right past the net.
"Eep!" Loveline dodged out of the way when the ball landed with enough force to send sand flying all over the place. Were the owners of this place really expecting this level and intensity of superpowered volleyball matches? How the hell is the ball still in one piece?
"FUCK!" Martha stomped when she landed, blowing a plume of sand into the air. "Looove, you have to block the ball!" She complained. Allan glared at his teammate and put a hand on her shoulder. His fingers gripped tightly, digging into her skin. "The kid is normal. You could have killed her with that!" His tail thrashed on the sand.
Fumi just nodded shyly where she sat, avoiding eye contact with her gaze set through the windows. What may have seen like her innocence showing through was simply her scoping out what she could with this limited window of opportunity. His room was clean, she didn’t see any pants...but she did see a suitcase. Bingo! She’d wait until he got finished changing, ask to use his bathroom, and along that walk she’d steal the case! Until then, she sat in the noon sun and was content to wait for her moment to strike.

Chase shrugs an expression that basically says he is giving up on finding of Eri's identity, however he does response in a rather comedic dry humor to marceline's comment, "That's funny coming from you."
Eri let out a small, silent sigh of relief; seemed she'd dodged a bullet and this guy either didn't care enough, or was too lazy to press forward. Lucky her! Seeming more upbeat again, despite being in the presence of Marceline who she still bore a small bit of childish irritation towards, Eri gave a bright smile to Erin who'd come to her defense. "Thank you...that's incredibly sweet of you!" She was still holding to her arm as if it were casual, which for Eri it mostly was. Meet and Greets gained her a lot of permission to do things just like this with fans and they seemed to love it! Though she couldn't exactly understand why...
The tension between these two seemed to amp up again and it suddenly clicked what Marceline had said earlier. "Wait...is this?..." She placed one hand over her mouth as if she were about to speak something forbidden, looking surprised as she looked between both Marceline and Chase. Was...he the ex?! How dramatic! Could she diffuse the tense situation that was slowly beginning here? "So uh!! How are all of you liking this resort! This is my first real vacation in quite a while! Kind of ironic since my home is pretty much surrounded by beach, huh?"
"Alright then, I'll be right back." John stepped into the room and closed the curtains to give himself some privacy. A minute later he came out in pants but not a shirt, largely because his chest was still grimy with sunscreen. "Alright, got my wallet. You ready, Fumi?" He broadly smiled. He had see the stuff on the little coast town and was ready for a great time there. "If that's true, fine. Just be careful." Allan released Clarissa and tossed his head with a sneer. He paced back to his side of the field and watched the opposing team. Martha put an arm over Love's shoulder. "Hey, it's okay! You're doing great. Just keep the eye on the ball and we'll have them easy!" She declared, flexing her arm in defiance. Marceline nodded. "Yeah. He's the ex. Sorta. Fucked once, some complicated shit after." She gave a noncommittal gesture to Eri. Looked like Erin wasn't going to make a move or get Eri to go away. So that course of action was pointless. Marceline was no matchmaker. She didn't care who got together and she honestly shouldn't get involved. Not like she had made great choices herself. "Erin, you want your chair back or what?" "Absolutely unacceptable. Release me or I shall harm you." The Shattered One put a finger to Amai's abdomen, glassy scales appearing over its hands. The Shattered One was both selfishly defending the vessel it needed to survive in this realm and protecting a being it had respect for. It saw these motivations as no different, as both were to defend beauty.
