With eight hours to go until her flight, Miley was kind of in a mad rush to get everything packed in time. Because everything meant everything, and for some ridiculous reason, when she'd shown up on this island last July she'd sort of brought a ton of stuff.

Not all of it was going with her, probably -- there were some outfits she had no idea why she'd ever bought and had no intention of bringing back home with her -- but a lot of it was, and most of it wasn't going to fit in her sparkly pink luggage. Which meant that there were moving boxes everywhere, and Miley was frantically attacking them with moving tape in the hopes that they would just close already.

Plus her phone was ringing off the hook with calls from Vida and Lilly and Jackson and her father, all wondering when she was supposed to get in, not to mention agents of various talk show hosts who wanted to schedule appearances with her, and of course Steven Spielberg, who wanted to know when she was getting to the set next week, and and and--

So yeah, Miley was a wee bit stressed right now. She was flying around the room, jamming things into boxes with her phone tucked between her ear and her shoulder, explaining, "Yes, Vida, I know about the signing in Paris, I remember and I'm totally gonna be there on Satur-- no, yeah, I meant Thursday, that's totally what I meant, I'll be there Thursday, no okay I gotta go bye!"

"Getting all ready to go?" Dave asked as he appeared over by the door frame.

"Hi!" Miley chirped, hurrying over for a kiss. "Yep! Just making sure I'm ready to go for tonight. Which is so weird, that it's tonight. When did I turn into a functioning adult?"

Um, never, Miley. Never ever.

After the kiss hello, Dave smirked. "I'd try to claim it's when you got the diploma. It's a nice piece of physical evidence."

"I will cherish it forever," Miley declared importantly, then paused.

"...I think. I mean, if it's in one of those boxes. Otherwise it's lost."

"I'm sure it's buried in there somewhere," Dave said. "It'll be a nice surprise whenever you find it."

"Totally," Miley agreed. "Except probably it'll take forever for me to find it since I'm going from here straight home and then in the jet to Paris to do publicity and start filming, and I probably won't have time to unpack or anything." Pause. "Maybe Vida can open boxes for me. Does that sound like something a manager does?"

"That probably depends on her percentage," Dave said.

...

"I think it's... a lot?"

Date: 2012-04-29 11:53 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] iwishiwasbig.livejournal.com
"Then I'm sure she will," Dave said.

"Good," Miley decided.

Poor Vida.

"So... you gonna come see me in Paris this summer?" she segued, batting her eyelashes a little up at Dave.

Dave let out a little sigh. "That's actually something I thought we'd have to talk about."

He had kind of planned this out in his head, but somehow it never really came together better than, "So, you know how you're going to be really busy doing... everything, really, and I'm going to be a junior in a weird high school in my future?"

That did not sound like a promising segue.

"Uh-huh..."

"Well, it's just more long-distance than I think I can do. Especially with you being so busy and me still being, you know, here," Dave said. "I mean, I only managed to get out to see you in concert once when you were just across the country instead of the ocean."

"Oh," Miley said, lip quivering a little. Or a lot. It was admittedly kind of cute. "Are you breaking up with me?"

She'd been broken up with enough times, you'd think she'd recognize the warnings. Especially when the breaker-upper was as direct as Dave was being.

"Yeah, I guess I am," Dave said. "I'm sorry, Miley."

"Oh." SO MUCH LIP-QUIVERING. "Well. Um, okay, if you think that's for the best?"

"In the long-run, I really think it is. At least this way we don't have to watch things not work for a long time because of the distance first," Dave said as he started looking at her forehead instead of making eye contact just so the lip quivering didn't distract him from making the right decision.

"Okay," she said, still kind of moping. "Um. Goodbye hug?"

Date: 2012-04-30 01:52 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] iwishiwasbig.livejournal.com
"Yeah, that would be great," Dave said, going in for the hug. At least this way he definitely wouldn't have the lip quiver doing a number on him.

And now he was getting hugged pretty tightly. So.

"Good, um, good dating," she said, managing a slight laugh near his ear.

Date: 2012-04-30 01:57 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] iwishiwasbig.livejournal.com
"Thanks? I guess?" Dave said, letting out a small laugh of his own. "Yeah, that's pretty much the farthest thing from my mind right now. But good luck to you with everything. Including that."

Miley grinned despite herself. "I meant the past few months," she clarified. "Like, 'good job'? But. That too."

Date: 2012-04-30 02:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] iwishiwasbig.livejournal.com
"Oh! You know, you'd think that we might have figured out how to be less dorky by this point. It's actually nice to see that some things don't change," Dave said. "Good dating you, too."

"Go team," Miley offered. "And, um. Good luck with the next couple years at this place, 'cause it's crazy."

Seriously, drop bears?

From: [identity profile] iwishiwasbig.livejournal.com
"I'd ask how much worse it could get, but that would just be asking for it," Dave said. "But thanks. For everything, really."

"Um, I think I'm going to get out of here before this turns awkward again. But have safe flights, okay?"

Date: 2012-04-30 02:35 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] its-theclimb.livejournal.com
"Back atcha," Miley returned. Beat. "Not that you're... flying anywhere. You know what I mean."

Maybe?

Date: 2012-04-30 02:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] iwishiwasbig.livejournal.com
"I think I do," Dave said, stepping back toward the door. "And again, good luck with everything. You're going to be a huge star."

"Are you really going already?" Juliet asked from the doorway, with the tiniest bit of a pout. "I'm going to miss you."

Date: 2012-04-30 01:21 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] its-theclimb.livejournal.com
"Me tooooo," Miley agreed, flopping down on her bed and gesturing for Juliet to sit with her. "You're, like, the best shopping buddy ever. You took bad camera angles for me!"

And wasn't that the meaning of friendship?

From: [identity profile] twintuitionist.livejournal.com
"That part wasn't on purpose," Juliet grumbled. "Did I look that bad?"

Date: 2012-04-30 01:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] its-theclimb.livejournal.com
"Only a little bad," Miley assured her, "and it was totally shopped."

Miley had no idea what that meant.

From: [identity profile] twintuitionist.livejournal.com
"No such thing as bad publicity, anyhow," Juliet reminded herself. "Anyhow, can we still go shopping after you leave? I can totally fly to wherever you are."

"Totally!" Miley agreed. "I'll be in Paris most of the summer filming with Tom Cruise--" name-dropper-- "but I hear there are some pretty awesome stores there, soooo..."

From: [identity profile] twintuitionist.livejournal.com
"I met Tom once," Juliet said, stretching the truth -- which was that she'd been in the same room as him at a benefit -- considerably. "He's really short."

Bigger name dropper.

"But, ohmigod, Paris? I haven't been there in forever. You're making a movie there?"

Date: 2012-04-30 02:19 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] its-theclimb.livejournal.com
"Yep!" Miley said proudly. "It's basically about a Southern girl who lives a double life. Something about the plot must have given me an edge."

Miley, don't be smug.

Juliet sighed. "See, they just need to let me audition for something about a twin and I would totally rock it. But you will be awesome."

"Aww, thanks," Miley said, with a mock-humble wave of her hand. "I can see if I can hook you up, if you want. I totally have an in with Steven Spielberg, so."

Still a name-dropper.

Juliet grinned. "I want to try it on my own first," she said. "But ... it's always good to have friends."

From: [identity profile] its-theclimb.livejournal.com
"It is," Miley agreed, moving in for a hug. "I'll miss you, BTW. And you're totally invited to whatever Oscar parties I might get invited to, like, forever."

"Samesies," Juliet told her, squeezing back. "I'd wish you luck, but you so don't need it."

Date: 2012-04-30 03:20 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] its-theclimb.livejournal.com
"Neither do you," Miley said, possibly because she'd never seen Juliet act. "Except with this place, 'cause it's crazy. Try to avoid... wild talking animals or something?"

Helpful.

[np, so did I]

"C'mon, you're off to be fayyyyymuss," Kenzi teased. "One last pic before you're gone."

So she could sell it on eBay?

"Why not?"

From: [identity profile] its-theclimb.livejournal.com
"Okay," Miley said at last, taking a few steps out of her room and closing the door behind her before flashing Kenzi a smile.

click click click click! Kenzi grinned and showed Miley the photos. "Niiice! Where are you off to after this? Concert tour? Europe?"
