When we get back to the hotel, everyone is sitting in the lobby, waiting to be checked in. "Hey, Jocelyn!" Mahogany says as I walk through the doors. Taylor and Carter walk towards the guys.
We all know each other's names, we just haven't all met. I walk over to her. "Nice to finally meet you," I say. We hug.
"Glad to see I'm not the only girl here."
"I think we're sharing a room," she says.
"Awesome! We can get to know each other," I say. We've been wanting to meet each other for a while but never had the chance.
"Jocelyn, come over here," Taylor calls me. I walk over and he's standing with Cameron Dallas and Nash Grier.
Damn, Cameron is so tan and his chocolate brown eyes are gorgeous. Although they don't quite measure up to Nash's bright blue eyes. Too bad Cam has a damn girlfriend. "Nash, you're eyes are brighter in person," I say.
He smirks. "Nice to meet you finally, Jocelyn."
"Yeah, we've been meaning to get together to colab," Cameron says.
"She was really excited to meet you two," Taylor pipes in. I shove him a little.
"I was excited to meet everyone," I say.
Aaron comes over. "Hey Jocelyn, Taylor, good to see you." He hugs me. I didn't realize everyone was a hugger.
After I meet everyone else and receive yet another hug from Matt, we all get our room keys. "You should probably go get some rest," Justin suggests.
We nod and then all sit by the pool, forming a circle with the chairs. We talk for a while, getting to know everyone and breaking the ice. Then, Taylor gets up to throw something away and Cameron shoves him in the pool. Nash gets up and shoves him in and it's a chain reaction until everyone is in, even Mahogany.
Lucky for me, I dodged the bullet and sit perfectly dry. Cameron sees me and yells, "We forgot Jocelyn!" I get up and start running as he climbs out of the pool.
I don't make it far before Cameron grabs me and throws me in. Everyone laughs, including me, as he jumps in again.
"The pool is closed!" The front desk man stands in the doorway. It's already midnight. "Dry off a bit so you don't drag water through my lobby," he says.
We grab some towels start drying off. Then, Cameron twists one and whips Nash. "Ouch!"
"Hey! Cut it out and get to your rooms. You're disturbing my other guests." The manager rubs his temple. We trudge past him towards the elevators.
We have to take two to fit everyone but still end up squished together. I end up pressed against Taylor. "Having fun?" I ask only loud enough so he can hear.
"Stop by my room before you go to bed," he says.
"Alright. Who are you rooming with?"
The elevator doors open and we go our separate ways to dry off. Mahogany unlocks the door. "I'm going to go to bed," she says.
"Ok, I'm going to go change and then hang with Taylor for a bit," I say.
"Okay, see ya tomorrow."
I quickly put on some dry clothes and then knock on Taylor's door. Matt lets me in and then collapses on his bed. "Ugh, I hope we can sleep in tomorrow."
Taylor comes out of the bathroom, towel drying his hair. Someone knocks on the door. "Taylor, Matt, open up. It's Nash with Cam and Carter."
"Jocelyn's in here, too," Matt yells back.
"Oh, we'll just leave you two alone then," Cameron mocks, followed by a wave of laughter.
Taylor angrily opens the door. "Shut the hell up. Not like that."
They brush past him. "We're partying tonight," Cameron says.
"I'm sure. You'll be out in an hour, Cam," I say.
He brushes it off. "Whoever falls asleep first will regret it," Nash says.
"My bet's on Taylor," Carter says. Taylor is in the middle of yawning.
"I'm betting it'll be Cam," I say.
"No way, you're going down," Cameron fires back.
"Was I the only one planning on sleeping?" Matt says.
"Yeah," we all say.
He sighs as we continue talking. "What does the last one awake get?"
"The pride of winning," I say.
"Not good enough. Winner gets to pick out the losers' outfits tomorrow."
We all agree and then begin. Unsurprisingly, Taylor falls asleep first. One by one, everyone drifts off until it's just me and Cam.
Matt, Carter, and Nash all fell asleep on one bed. They don't look too comfortable. Taylor is spread out on the bed I'm sitting on and Cameron is sitting in the chair.
I scroll through twitter to keep me occupied. I see Cameron's head droop a little. "Tired, Cameron?" I ask, yawning.
"4:30." Everyone else fell asleep hours ago.
"Truce?" He offers.
I nod and plunk my head down on the pillow next to Taylor. Cameron falls asleep in the chair.
