💃We’re gearing up for the #TurvyTruthOrDare on Instagram and the D2D crew is gathered together. Listen in while I let them know how we’re going to play the game…
Emily Swift, with her friends Tara Parker-Jones, Rabbit, and Lucie Bellerose, relaxed in the rented party room at Zenith, a trendy restaurant located in downtown Matar.
Templeton was – reluctantly – present as well, nursing a drink at the bar. He sighed into his glass and considered how his alcohol intake had increased since he met Emily.
The room was furnished with plush couches and chairs, a row of TVs high on one wall, a pool table, a poker table, and a fully stocked bar. Lucie snagged several bottles of wine and set them on a low table with glasses. Rabbit gave her the eye. She ignored him.
“Brown said she’d be here at noon,” Emily began. “A new Turvy is starting tomorrow. She’s going to explain the rules of the game.”
“The game?” Lucie frowned.
The door opened and T.L. Brown entered. Behind her, Sebastian St. Michel.
“What in the –?” Emily rose to her feet. Rabbit swore, jumping up from his chair and advancing. Templeton slammed his glass down on the bar, straightening and muttering a spell under his breath.
“No,” Brown said, stepping in front of Rabbit. She glanced at Templeton. “Everyone needs to stop and listen to me. This Turvy is going to be a little different, and yeah, Sebastian’s going to be a part of it. Suck it up, buttercups.”
Sebastian grinned at the others, slinging his arm around Brown’s shoulders. She shook him off.
“Here’s how it’s going to work: The #TurvyTruthOrDare consists of 7 days and you’re all getting a day. Big Rabbit’s running late, but he’ll be playing along, too.” Brown held out a top hat as she walked around the room. “Seven slips of paper in here marked 1 through 7. Everyone picks one. I’ll pick for Big Rabbit.”
Next, Brown set two decks of cards face down on the poker table. One was marked Truth, the other Dare. “Who has number 1?”
Rabbit held up his paper. His eyes were solid black. He stared at Sebastian.
“Great. Tomorrow Rabbit picks from the Dare pile,” Brown said. “Rabbit, you’ll decide Truth or Dare for day two’s person and so on.” She looked around the room. “Play nice, everyone. And Sebastian, don’t be a d*ck.”
Tune in tomorrow as we officially begin the #TurvyTruthOrDare challenge on Instagram and Rabbit has to complete the first Dare… in the buff. (That post is now available. Click here!)
