Modern Dregs AU #3

The Dregs at the beach

  • Nina and Kuwei come up with the idea to take a trip to the beach over the summer
  • the roadtrip there was a shitstorm
  • half the time they get lost
  • and when they finally get there, there are SO MANY PEOPLE
  • and Wylan ain’t too fond of crowds
  • Matthias seems like the kind of guy to go out surfing but nah
  • he likes to sunbathe with Nina
  • I mean full on, wearing the aviators and reading a book with a little umbrella stuck in the ground nearby to produce a little shade
  • and ofc he has to be there if Nina needs more sunscreen on her back
  • wink wink
  • Jesper would do the same for Wylan except little Wy is huddled under the shade where not even his toe pokes outside his little circle of shadowy protection
  • you’ve seen the boy, he’s pale af
  • he burns in the rays of the evil orb known as the Sun™
  • “hey, wylan van sunshine, your cousin says hello” “tell him to fuck off”
  • in the shade, he just builds sandcastles since he has nothing better to do
  • and they’re grand, so he always shares them on his instagram
  • though occasionally wylan runs out into the water for five minutes because you know, it’s the beach
  • he takes his trusty goggles with him
  • and then he returns to the shade
  • in the end he still suffers a sunburn??? though he’s in the sun for only five minutes??
  • poor wy
  • Kaz, on the other hand, refuses to even leave the car for the first hour that they’re there
  • Jesper tries to get him out
  • “c’mon, Kaz, might as well enjoy it while we’re here” “enjoy what? building sandcastles and birdshit from the gulls?”
  • though Kaz will gladly race out to the shore when Jesper goes out to surf
  • ofc Jesper rides them waves
  • though whenever he collapses off the board, Kaz always manages to get it on snapchat
  • “wow, jes, i didn’t know you could possibly suck at something more than Mario Kart” “i will feed you to the sharks, kaz”
  • but Kaz never goes swimming or sunbathes either he burns worse than Wylan
  • you will never see that boy in swimming trunks
  • never
  • but you’ll certainly see him join Inej on a scavenger hunt for shells
  • Inej is one of those who wades around in the low tide, plucking shells, finding crabs, and climbing rocks
  • she somehow gets Kaz to wade with her
  • he’s pretty sure she’s the reincarnation of Aphrodite
  • sometimes they hold hands
  • Nina goes out for a swim once every time they go to the beach
  • and every time she does, something brushes her foot
  • “NO, NO, NO, NO, MATTHIAS HELP”
  • but it’s only Inej
  • “damn it, Inej, you SCARED me” “they don’t call me the Wraith for nothing
  • you can hear Kaz cackling in the background
  • Kuwei mostly enjoys the beach for the lovely sunsets
  • that’s also when Wylan ditches the shade and walks with Jesper along the shore (yes, they’re THAT couple)
  • and as the sun sets, Kuwei calls for a bonfire
  • so he builds one
  • Jesper plays with the flames and it worries everyone
  • “you’re gonna burn yourself, jes” “no i’m not”
  • he indeed burns himself
  • Nina roasts marshmallows for the group while Jesper is chosen to DJ from the car
  • he plays the raunchy stuff just to get Wylan all flustered
  • “apple bottom jeaans” “jesper, please” “boots with the furrr” “JESPER” “WITH THE FUR”
  • Nina sometimes dances with Jesper and since baby got back (yes, they play that song) Matthias CaNnOT eVen TaKE It
  • his face turns redder than Wylan’s sunburn
  • meanwhile Kuwei is stuffing his face with the rest of the marshmallows still in the bag, enjoying the show
  • Inej laughs at Nina and Jesper’s antics and it kills Kaz
  • the night ends with everyone heading to the tide one more time and admiring the moon
  • you cannot tell me the crows aren’t “look at the moon” people
  • but the night ain’t over until someone’s thrown into the water
  • that someone is Kuwei
  • Wylan threw him
