20. Rules

Cole's POV

“New York! I love you!” I shouted as I looked at the NYC skyline before me.

“You're such a freak!” Nic said laughing at me.

“Oh well.” I said walking back to my seat.

“So whatcha doing today?” Nic asked.

“Well I was probably gonna just sight see some. I know I'm doing some talking for the movie, not like publicity, but like I talk, they record.” I said laughing. “Probably do a little shopping before the signing at 4. You?”

“I'm meeting up with Paige!”

“Nice! What's she doing up here? Isn't she still at school?”

“Well her parents moved just outside of NYC, so we're getting together for the day!”

“Well that's good! What time you meeting?”

“Probably around 10. That gives me four hours to sleep and one to get ready!”

“Sounds good.” I said laughing. “I'll probably leave the bus at around noon. It's not like I haven't seen NYC.”

“True.” Nic said laughing.

“Would you two just shut up? It's 5 am let's sleep!” V mumbled.

“Someone is grouchy!” Nic said laughing.

“Yeah, but she's probably right, I want sleep.”

“Ok, well I suppose I'll see you at the signing then!”

“Whatever.” I said walking to the sleeping area.

The next thing I know it's noon and V was still sleeping. Nic was obviously long gone, but I still checked to make sure she wasn't anywhere on the bus. I grabbed a shower and decided on being lazy. I put my hair in a messy bun and threw on yoga pants, a sweatshirt and some very light makeup. I honestly didn't care how I looked. At 12:30 I finally left the bus. I did the usual tourist stuff, Statue Of Liberty, Times Square, etc.

“Nicole?” I heard a familiar voice say. I looked up from my phone to see Nick.

“Wow. Nick...what are you doing here?”

“Exploring different places for my film.”

“That's not really your job.” I said laughing.

“Well they're trying something new, and they want to know what my vision is, so naturally I came to see if New York was my vision.”


“It's not. But I love it here!”

“Me too.”

“That's one thing we ALWAYS agreed on.” He said laughing.


“Where's Louis?”

“Oh he's back in LA with the boys, they're working on their new album.”


“Yeah, I miss him, but I got way more time than I expected with him.”

“I bet!”

“How's you're new girlfriend?”

“My girlfriend?”

“Aren't you dating Demi?”

“No! Where'd you hear that?”


“Don't believe her.” Nick said rolling his eyes.

“Be nice!” I said laughing.

“Ok...No, we're not dating. We are becoming really good friends though!”

“You so like her!” I said lightly pushing him.

“Maybe a little bit...” He said blushing.

“Aw Nick! GO GET HER!” I said laughing.

“Whatever.” He said laughing also. “But in all seriousness, it feels so good to laugh with you again.”

“I completely agree!” I said placing my hand on my chest.

“What's that?” He said looking at my hand.

“What's what? Oh.” I said looking at my finger. “It's a promise ring.”

“Promising what?”

“That when we're older we'll get married.”

“Isn't that a big decision to make at 18?”

“I would have made the same promise to you before our falling out.”


“Yes. But if I knew how perfect a relationship could be I wouldn't have. We had a great time, but we should have ended it long before we did.”


“It's nothing against you Nick. It was just as much my fault as it was yours.”

“Nicole, you don't have to say this stuff.”

“But Nick, I mean it. And you deserve to hear it.”

“Thanks Nicole.”

“No problem Nick! But I have a signing to get to before the show tonight so I better run, I don't want the girls freaking out.”

“Alright! It was nice seeing you.” He said smiling.

“Text me sometime after the tour's done, maybe we could grab a coffee.”

“Sounds good. Oh and congratulations Nicole. I really am happy for you!”

“Thanks Nicky.” I said hugging him. “But I really gotta run now!”

“Alright, see ya!”

I made my way to the place where we were having the signing, honestly I had no idea what this building was called, but it was huge! I sat in the back room for about 15 minutes before I decided to go sit at the table.

“Hey look who's up!” I said when I saw V sitting at the table.

“Very funny.”

“Where's Nic, we're starting in two minutes!”

“I haven't seen her, I thought you two were together.”

“No, she was with Paige. I told her the signing was at 4! Ugh Nicole! I'm using our telepathy to send you brain waves that I'm not happy!”

Moments later Nicole walked in with Paige.

“I know you're mad, but we have an excuse!”

“See V, we really are telepathic.” I said laughing. “But Nic, I don't wanna hear your excuse, and sorry Paige but you can't be back here. There's a room you can wait in for Nic.”

“Ok.” She said walking out.

“Well that was kinda harsh.” Nic said in awe.

“Well that's what you get almost being late for our signing.”

“I'm sorry!”

“Whatever, they're letting people in soon. Act happy.”

“Girls, are you ready?” Hank asked.


“Alright, I've got the cameras set up and I'll let the guards know you're ready!”

“Ok!” We said in unison.

“So guess who I ran into today!” I said as I was signing things.

“Who?” V asked.


“Are you serious?” Nic asked.

“No, I'm lying. Yes I'm serious!”

“Geez. Grouchy!”

“I'm not grouchy! What's your name?” I said to the little girl now standing in front of me.


“Hi Jamie!”


“How old are you?”


“Whoa! You're almost into the double digits!”

She smiled a little and then said “Yeah then I'll be old and delusional.”

“If you're old and delusional at 10 what am I? I'm 18!” I said laughing.

“Ancient, and cray cray.” She said laughing as well.

“Ancient? Wow. Nic here is two months older than me, what's she?”

“Prehistoric!” She said causing me and the girls to die of laughter.

“Have you ever seen mine and Virginia's impersonation of old people?”


“Well! Ol' Ginny, she never seen us be old!” I said with my old lady voice, Nic just sighing in embarrassment.

“Every time.” Nic said with a shake of her head.

“Wha? We're not old!”

“You don't know if I'm cold. Speak for yourself ya old bag!”

“You're older than me.”

“That's so insulting! You're cold.”

“Stop calling me old.”

“And scene!” I said laughing.

“You guys are funny."

“Why thank you!” I said laughing. We finished the signing about an hour later, we had about an hour to get ready for the concert and what not. Nic said she was just going to grab a quick bite to eat with Paige then come get ready. V and I just decided to order a pizza and start getting ready while we waited. We were dressed with hair and makeup done at 5:50. We had already ate our pizza and we were told it was time for sound check. We took our places on stage when we realized Nic wasn't there.

“NICOLE RENEE!” I shouted. “You know what. I think on concert days we have to stay together. I don't care if our best friends are here, or even our boyfriends. This is ridiculous. It was one thing when it was a signing but a fucking concert!”

“I completely agree. This is ridiculous.”

“Girls! We need to start sound check! Where's Nicole?”

“Good question.” I said angrily.

“Well we can't start the sound check without her!”

“Well looks like we have to.” Virginia said, just as pissed off as I was.

“Ok...” Our manager said. “Let's start then.”

About half an hour later we were finished with sound check, still no Nic.

“I'm calling her.” I said after we got backstage.

“Hello?” She said.

“Are you dead?” I said.




“Is Paige dead or hurt?”

“No why?”


“Nicole, calm down.”


“I'm on my way, but there's traffic.”

“Yes, we're in NYC. OBVIOUSLY THERE IS TRAFFIC! You should have factored that into your plans. And don't you dare show up with Paige.”

“Is that why you're so angry? Because I spent the day with Paige?”

“No I'm angry because you're usually Ms. Punctual, but the moment you get with Paige you're late to IMPORTANT THINGS! Concert starts in 15 minutes. You better pray you get here in time.” I said before hanging up.

“You tell her!” V said laughing.

“I'm just pissed off. It's one thing to be late to sound check but she never even made it here.”

“I know.”

About 10 minutes our manager came and told us to take our place. We had one of those really cool things where we came up from beneath the stage.

“Is Nic here yet?”

“No.” Virginia and I said bitterly.

“She's in big trouble.” He said before walking out. We took our places and I called Nic again.

“You better be right behind me.”

“Well it's a good thing I am.” I hung up.

“We need to talk. We've got some new rules to inform you of.”


We finished the concert and immediately went to the bus.

“Nicole. What you did today was ridiculous. And you're in big trouble.” Our manager said.

“I'm sorry!”

“Nicole, would you like to explain the new rules?”

“Sure!” I said.

“To start, on any day we have an event we must be together. It doesn't matter if your best friend, boyfriend, or brother is visiting, we will be together. Second, if you aren't here within 10 minutes of an event, or with a concert, an hour, we will make you do all the chores for a month, this includes buying dinner, laundry, cooking dinner, grocery shopping, shoe cleaning, organizing our clothes, shoes, purses, and whatever else we decide to throw in there.”


“Nicole you just can't be careless with time! That's all we're getting at.”

“Ok. Well if you're done lecturing me, I'm going to bed.”

“Nicole this isn't like you!”


I decided to text Harry and get him to talk some sense into her.

Nicole: Something's up with your gf.

Harry: What do you mean?

Nicole: She was almost late for a signing, she missed sound check and was almost late for the concert!

Harry: Wasn't she with her old friend today?

Nicole: Yes, but we both know that's not like her.

Harry: I'll talk to her.
