6 months later
The late June air was hot and sticky, the kind of weather that made you dream of the winter you’d been complaining about only months earlier.
Pidge, Hunk and Shiro lounged under a large tree, ice cold drinks in hand. Keith and Lance had left about twenty minutes earlier to, “get refills” on their pretty much full drinks. They probably thought they were being subtle.
Pidge took a sip from her lemonade. “Where do you think the lovebirds ran off to because it sure as hell wasn't to get a refill.”
“Not sure, but if I had to guess I'd say they’re probably off kissing somewhere. Like when they needed to 'thank their favorite professors' at graduation.”

They discussed music (“ Beyonce is a goddess don't you dare insult her”), movies “ (I'm excited to see Moana, looks like the music's going to be great” “seriously, Lin-Manuel Miranda is a gift from the musical theatre gods”) attractive celebrities( “any opportunity to see Channing Tatum half-naked is a opportunity I'm going to take”), Pet peeves( Why would you clap at the end of a movie no one can hear you, it completely defeats the purpose of clapping) and more.
