WHO: Sarah & Toby Williams, Simon & Monty Petrelli, [OPEN] WHERE: the Hyperion; specifically the double-rooms corridor WHEN: the first evening Nathan & Heidi are away WHAT: Silly string. Does it need more explanation? RATING: TBD STATUS: thread; in-progress
With two residents of the corridor the double rooms ran along out of the hotel for the near future, Sarah had declared the corridor to be the war zone for the intended silly string battle. What better, after all, to tire out three incredibly rambunctious boys so everyone wasn't up until the crack of dawn? Besides, she figured the games would help ease some of the occasional tension between the three boys at having Toby sleeping in their father's room.
Having distributed a portion of the multitude of cans she'd purchased, Sarah now lay flat on her stomach at the very end of the corridor, body mostly concealed by two overturned chairs that Monty had draped a bedsheet over to give them a protective wall. At the other end, a similar structure had been erected, behind which were Toby and Simon. In between, various boxes, chairs and thumbtacked sheets offered further protection for advancing on each other, more cans strategically placed behind them to 'reload', the extras in a box at the end of the hallway should anyone join them.
"Losers have to clean up the mess!" she called to the other end of the corridor.
Beside her, Monty shot her a wide-eyed look. "Eww, really? Then I want on the other team!"
Sarah rolled her eyes and then affected a pout. "Fine, abandon me, I'll take you all on!"
Cackling with a six-year-old's supreme confidence that all choices they make must be right, Monty jumped over the sheet wall and ran to the other end of the hall.
