A tent on the beach, Monday morning
So, Dinah and Priestly had decided to camp out on the beach Sunday night. The weather was warm enough, they'd gotten a tent and a double sleeping-bag in town, and a cooler full of drinks and snacks. It had been really, really nice.

And as the Monday morning tide rolled in, Dinah turned over with a sigh, to find her hair no longer chin-length, the sunlight in her eyes, and herself no longer married to the guy sharing the sleeping bag. She really ought to be used to this by now, and yet somehow....

Cue awkward morning conversation, take-- crap, what were they on now, take six? Argh.

[ooc: for the BFF.]

"Mmmm." Dinah was not about to bring the Awkward back. Or maybe it had gone off to hide from them? "Also, way better than waking up with Warren that one time, because that was freak-inducing on multiple levels." She TK'd open the cooler and floated a water bottle to herself. Then a little bag of dried blueberries. "Breakfast of champions."

"Hey, you're going to share some of that with your non-powered ex-husband, right?"

What? They'd been married and now they weren't. In the future.

Tenses in Fandom: also difficult.

Dinah took a slurp from the bottle and then handed it to him, stuffed a few blueberries in her mouth and held out the bag in faux-resignation.

"Does this count as community property?"

"Well, we did buy it when we were married."

"So who gets the tent?" Dinah sat up, pulling the top of the sleeping bag over her chest more for warmth than modesty. "I get the sleeping bag. It's comfy. And silk!" Mmm, blueberries.

"Well, I was going to offer joint custody, but if you're taking the sleeping bag. . . ."

"We could have supervised visits?" Dinah was trying not to giggle, and stuffing more blueberries in her mouth didn't actually help. Except to make her look like a chipmunk.

"Well, not if you choke to death on blueberries." Priestly shook his head at her and grabbed the bag from her hand. "Then I get everything."

"Mmph!" Dinah protested, and tried to TK them back to herself, but Priestly had too good a grip on them. ".. no fairs. I'm talking to my lawyer, buddy. See if you get any more water."

"But your honor, I was only trying to save her from herself!" Priestly protested to an imaginary judge. "She has a serious blueberry problem."

Dinah flopped back onto the sleeping bag, giggling uncontrollably. "This is how ex-married-people sound? Judges should get hazard pay." More snickering. "I wonder how they-we-them got together?" Not looking at him. No Awkward. Just... weirdly curious.

"Maybe one of Karla's 'lock them in a closet' plots actually worked."

Dinah snorted, then laughed again. "Oh my god I am so glad she wasn't here this weekend. Can you imagine?"

"The shrieking," Priestly said. "You know she'll hear about it and never let us hear the end of it."

"NNngh." Dinah double-face-palmed. "And Momoko was here, and Jaime, so..." Yeah, that was inevitable.

"We can hide?" Right? Right? That would work, yes?
