"No problem" Tristan says tucking Liza in her bed.
"Our pleasure" Brad's smile makes me blush. He takes a step closer, "Do you want to...."
"Go get some food. I'de love to" Tristan interjects rapping his arms around our necks.
We start to walk to the door. "Oh wait" I whisper slipping out of Tristains arm. I grab a note pad and write a note for Liza incase she wakes up. As I finish I kiss Liza on the forehead then head back over to the boys.
Tristan reaches his hand out for me to grab. "Let's go" I tell them tugging on his arm. "I have an ice cream date to get to", I brag.
"What?" I hear Brad whisper to Tristan as I let go of his hand and rush down the hall. I round the corner then stop when I hear Tristan's laugh.
"Don't worry mate" He explains "James lost a bet"
"Oh" Brad laughs in response but he still doesn't sound reassured.
I keep going so the boys won't think I'm ease dropping. When I reach the elevator I hit the button and lean against the wall waiting for them to round the corner. "Do you think they are still asleep?" I ask.
"Conner. Probably. James. Definitely" Brad answers, leaning against the wall with me.
I unexpectedly yawn. "Okay"
"We can always call it a night if you are too tired" Tristan teases.
"No!" I exclaim hooking my arm around Brads... very nonchalantly I might add. His eyes get very wide and look at Tristain. Meanwhile Tristain nods and give him a thumbs up. The elevator opens and we get in "Tomorrow after your show, you guys are leaving, right" I ask leaning against the corner.
"Sadly" Brad answers looking over at me.
"Not really." I cross my arms and get off the wall "You boys will go on to be even more famous than you are now" I proudly tell them.
The door dings and we get out heading back to the arena.
Connor is asleep, face down on the couch but I don't see James anywhere. "Connor" I say squatting down so we are face to face. When he doesn't move I put my fingers through his hair and repeat his name. Only a moan. "Time to get up". I tell him.
"We are going to find James" Brad tells me, I nod.
"Connor" I say again.
"No" he moans.
"I give up" I lie and stand up.
"Good" he says but then I lay on him. "Uggh" he grunts.
We lay there for a little. Our asses touching and it actually isn't awkward at all.
"Connor?" I ask.
"Can we be friends".
"What?" He laughs.
"Well after tomorrow, when you leave, can we keep in touch?"
"No doubt we will"
I look up at the dewy ceiling trying to figure out how to not sound like such a girl. "Well, it's just, I really come to like you guys. We could be great friends and it suck that we won't ever hang out again" I tell him in the best monotone voice I can make out.
He starts to move so I sit up and he flips over and sits up as well. "We all think you are wicked so it's impossible to leave you behind" he makes me blush and I tackle him down on the couch with a big bear hug.
"Thank you" I whisper in his ear. He kisses my cheek. We let go and smile at each other. "Let's go find the boys" I tell him. Then grab Connors hand and we walk out toward the stage. He puts his hand over my shoulder and I grab his waist. We start to simultaneously move our feet together. Right. Left. Right. Left. Right.
