    Summary

    "Hey Danny," John twirled around, his pink dress wrapping his legs as he lifted up a pointed finger. "You know when you try it once..." He warned.

    "Yeah I know," Dan grinned, his floral dress fluttering as he hurried offset behind Eric. John felt blush run to his cheeks, drag may not be funny, but it sure as hell looked good on Dan.

    Summary

    It wasn't her fault that she wanted to go on a road trip, and it most definitely is not her fault when Mao turns to her and presses his lips to her own. It can't be when she'd always called him a friend. "Friends," she says as the headlights come closer until she can't see anything and her breathing's stopped.

    But she has to admit, it's been bittersweet.

    From the pink leather jacket Hokke had given her, Makoto's famous waffles, Subaru's antics, especially Mao's warm hugs. It was a good run.

    So maybe the road trip was her fault, but Mao's kiss was definitely not. And maybe he knows this too, because now he's holding her body tight and crying.
    ~
    Mao invites Anzu to stay with him during the summer in a small town. It was only supposed to be the summer, but after something comes up she's forced to stay longer, and maybe it's for the better.

    She meets the biker gang, Trickstar, and is dragged in the middle of a turf war with fine. School is interesting, filled with some of the most interesting people she's met. And even back at home, with Ritsu throwing things at her and Mao fussing, maybe this town isn't all bad.

    Even if her teenage life gets in her way.
