We just got back to the hotel after the tour of
Instagram HQ. They loved Addi. They set up a meeting with her in the LA
HQ in a few weeks and she was so excited, but really shocked.
“So what are we all gonna do?” I ask sitting down on Addis bed, as we all ended up in her room.
don’t know about you, but I’m tired as hell. I gonna go pass out for a
few hours.” Sam says, walking towards the door. “I’m seconding his
statement.” Gilinsky says also heading towards the door waving by to all
of us still in the room.
“A nap doesn’t sound bad.” Cameron says
also leaving the room. Within a few minutes all the guys had left and
it was just Addi and myself in her room, laying on her bed.
“So what are we gonna do?” I ask.
don’t know but I’m not tired. So I would prefer to not take a nap.” she
says, resting her chin in her hands with her elbows on the bed.
“Is there anything you want to do?” I ask facing her laying on my stomach also.
that I can think of… hmmmm…” she says moving her head left to right
in her hands. I smile at her and I shake my head slightly. We both lay
there, thinking of something to do. But it seemed that neither of us
could think of a single thing to do. We were in New York, how could we
not think of anything to do.
“We could go get ice cream at a ice
cream shop since I’m sure there’s one around here. I mean we are in NYC
after all.” she says, her blue eyes lighting up with like a small child
on Christmas morning. I smile and nod my head.
“Sounds good to
me. I’m always up for ice cream.” I say, dropping my hands and rolling
onto my back. Addi laughs and then follows me.
“Is this our date?
Or are we still gonna go see a movie?” I ask. “This can be our date for
tonight. But we should still go see a movie.” she says, I nod my head.
let me change quick. I’m not feeling this outfit anymore.” she says
walking over to her bag. I sit back down on her bed and let her figure
out what she was going to wear. She turns around with a hair of shorts
and a red tshirt in hand. ’“I’ll be right back.” she says walking into
the bathroom with the clothes in hand. I nod my head and start to play
around on my phone.
There was some stuff that I wanted to talk to
her about. But I wasn’t sure when the time would be right. I wanted to
ask her about that night. And about Chad, but I knew the time wasn’t
right to ask about Chad. Maybe I would just ask Cameron about him, and
not make her talk about it and remember it anymore then she already
does. I would probably just do that. But I couldn’t ask Cameron about
that night, he wouldn’t know. I had to talk to her. What she really
thought, did she really think it was wrong and she didn’t want it or did
she just say that because I said it was wrong?
“Ready?” she asks
rounding the corner from the bathroom. “Yeah.” I say, standing up from
the bed. She grabs her phone from the corner of the bed, and her purse
from the table and we head out of the room.
We get to the lobby
level of the hotel and we get into the car and we start driving around. I
was driving and she was in the passenger seat, playing with the radio,
trying to find a good station to listen to.
“That place looks
good. Look at the line.” she says, pointing to her left, towards me at a
ice cream shop. “Sure.” I say. I keep driving and I see a parking ramp
near by and we go in and find a parking spot on the top level of it. I
park the car and we both get out and start walking towards the stairs.
are the other guys all so tired?” she asks. “I don’t know. Maybe they
were up late doing something that we weren’t.” I say. “Could be.” she
says, nodding her head ever so slightly.
We walk down the streets
and get stopped a few times to take some pictures with some fans. They
were asking both Addi and I for pictures, not just me.
We get to the ice cream shop in about 15 minutes of walking and we get inside and the line was practically gone.
get to the front of the line and it’s our turn to order. “I’ll have a
strawberry shake.” Addi says, smiling at the obviously nervous girl
working the counter. I wondered if it was her first day on the job or
something. "And for you?“ she asks, in a soft voice. I smile at her,
trying to make her less nervous. "I’ll have a vanilla shake.” I say. She
nods her head.
“That’ll be $7.50.” she says. Addi and I both
take out money. “I’ll get it.” I say, pushing her hands down. “No, it’s
fine.” she says, insisting that she pays. “This is our date. I’ll pay.” I
say. She smiles and puts her wallet back in her purse and I smile and
give the young girl with deep red hair my card. She swipes it and then
hands it back. “Thanks. And can I have a name for this?” she asks.
I say. She nods her head and types it into the computer. “That should
be up shortly.” she says, sounding more sure of herself then when we
first got to her. We both head away from the counter and go to sit down
at a table near the windows, so we could see outside onto the road.
this is a date now?” she asks sitting down across from me. “Yeah, you
already said it was. I had to make it official and pay.” I say. “I could
have paid for myself.” she says. “Yeah, I know you can. But as my date I
paid for you.” I say, putting my hand closer to her. She smiles, her
eyes sparkle in the light of the shop.
“Nash!” a guy yells. I get
up and grab the shakes and then head back to our table. I put Addi’s
down in front of her on the table. “Thanks.” she says, pulling it closer
to her, putting the straw between her teeth before closing her lips all
the way around the straw.
“Can we post a picture?” she asks. I
nod my head and get up and sit next to her, as I move my chair to be
there. She post it and has the caption be ‘You snooze you lose guys.’
*All the guys were tagged in it*
“Cute.” I say, going on my own
phone and liking the picture. There was a short silence between us, both
of us just enjoying the ice cream, and being in each others presence.
She was one of the best friends I ever had. There was no pressure when I
was around her.
“So Addi.” I speak up. Her eyes flicker up to
meet my own and she smiles a small smile. “Yeah?” she asks, moving her
mouth from the straw.
“I never got the full story on Cameron and you. How did you meet or get as close as you are?” I ask. She smiles.
the short story is that we meet in kindergarten and we were fast
friends. We went to the same school all through school. He was there for
me through everything. Everything with my dad. He was with me. We had
the same friends. And there were two years in high school when we
weren’t as close. We still talked sure, but not as much. And then he
dated this girl, my ex-best friend and we got closer through that. And
since then really we’ve been so close.” she says, a smile on her face,
from just talking about Cameron. I smile. I nod my head. It was nice to
know these things.
“So like a movie really.” I say. She nods her head. “Pretty much.” she says, playing with the straw in the clear glass cup.
“Do you know when this party is?” she asks. “I think it’s tomorrow.” I say.
have to get something to wear.” she says. “We can go tonight if you
want.” I suggest. She nods her head quickly and smiles, while closing
her eyes. “You like that idea?”
“Yeah, I always love the idea of shopping.” she says, making me laugh a bit.
fell her fingers trailing the skin on my hand as it rested on the table
in the middle. I look at her to see if she even noticed it and it
appeared that she didn’t. Her eyes were outside. She apparently had
found something that caught her attention. I go back to drinking my
shake. Just happy with how everything was right now for me.
We finish our shakes and head out of the shop and we get back to the car.
“Where should we go?” I ask.
don’t know. Just somewhere I can get a dress.” she says. I nod my head
and start heading down the parking ramp to reach the main level to get
back to the road.
We find a store shortly after and we go inside
and she goes running back to the wall of the store. “This is what I
want.” she says, grabbing the dress in her size. She grabs my hand and
brings me back to dressing room with me. I wait outside the black doored
room that she entered. I lean against the white shinny wall, covered in
black patterns. My tshirt riding up my back as it was stuck to my back
and I was slightly sliding down the wall. The door opens and Addi stands
there in a little black dress. “It’s perfect.” she exclaims, happiness
written across her face. The dress was all black, it had straps and it
tied in the back and it was tight to her body. It looked really good
honestly. It would fore sure get Cameron to notice her, as well as other
guys at the party. Which might be just what Cameron needs to fully
notice Addi and all she has.
“What do you think?” she asks, her
blue eyes wide, waiting for my response. “It looks really good. Cameron
will notice you in this.” I say, knowing that’s what she wanted to hear,
but it was also true I wasn’t just saying it. Her smile gets wider
across her face and she does a little happy dance in the doorway of the
small room she was in. She bounces about her curls bouncing around her
shoulders and face. I smile at her. “I’ll be right back.” she says
closing the door again. I shake my head at how excited she was. A few
minutes later she opens the door with the dress in her hands.
I ask. She nods her head and we both head up to the counter. She buys
the dress and we head back to the hotel for the night. It had been a few
hours. “Wanna order pizza? No use in waking the guys up.” I suggest.
“Sure.” say says, hanging up her new dress in the closet in the room.
“Cheese?” I ask. She nods her head. I grab my phone and I call the front
desk and I order a large cheese pizza charged to the room.
“It will be up soon.” I say, leaning back against the headboard of her bed.
“Wanna watch netflix?” she asks. I nod my head and she goes to netflix on the TV, I didn’t know these TV’s did that.
picked the show Friends and then sat down next to me, plugging her
phone into the charger. We watched one episode before the pizza got to
We sat on her bed and ate pizza and watched Friends. It was getting late, and I noticed Addi getting tired.
head back to my room so you can sleep.” I say, about to get up from the
bed. “You don’t have to leave. It will wake Cameron up. You can stay in
here.” she says. “Are you sure?” I ask, not wanting her to think she
had to let me sleep in here.
“No, it’s fine. You can even sleep
in this bed with me, so you don’t have to sleep in that one since I know
you don’t like being by the windows.” she says. I smile. “Sure.” I say,
I pull off my shirt as she gets up from the bed and grabs other clothes
to change into.
She walks back into the room wearing a pair of
gray shorts and a white tshirt that said naptime in black lettering on
the front across the chest. She had taken off most of her makeup, her
hair was a littel flatter since laying down for a while.
“Why haven’t you taken off your jeans?” she asks, looking at me with funny look.
“Because I don’t have any shorts to put on…” I say.
I don’t care. You can sleep in your boxers with me in the same bed. I
know you’re not gonna try anything. Don’t act like you think I’ve never
sleep with a guy only wearing boxers before. I know you don’t think
that.” she says laughing getting into her bed. I laugh as I get up and
pull off my jeans and kick them to the floor near my shirt which I
discarded on the floor also.
I lay down on the floor and put my phone on the table next to me, hoping it wouldn’t die tonight.
packed an extra charger if you need one.” Addi says from next to me. I
get up and she tells me where it was and I grab it, bringing it back
over to the bed. I plug my phone into it and lay down on the bed and get
“Can I?” she asks refering to laying on me again. I
smile and move my arm. She rests her head on my chest, and I put my arm
around her shoulders. Her hands resting near my the waist band of my
boxers, not that she was trying to do that, that’s just where her hand
fell on the blankets. She lets out a sigh. “You okay?” I ask, moving my
head to see her better. “Yeah, just thinking about Cameron.” she says.
“It’ll be okay.” I say, rubbing her back lightly. I see her smile,
before she closes her eyes. Shortly after I turn everything off while
trying to not move to wake her up. I see her hair in her face, I move it
out of her face with a few fingers before scooting down lower on the
bed and closing my eyes. Falling asleep quickly and soundly.
Sorry for never updating anymore!! I feel so bad.
Anyway.. what did you think of this chapter? I’m not sure what I think of it, but I knew I needed to get a chapter out and this is all I could come up with.
***FYI in the next chapter more of the other guys will be into the story**
