"Ok guys, time to get up." You hear Walker shout to everyone. You wake up and stretch and see Taylor sleeping in the same bed with you and get confused for a second then remember, ZAC. You look around the room and don't see him anywhere. "Where could he be?" You say aloud. Everyone begins to bustle to get their clothes packed and ready to go. "Maybe he'll be waiting for you somewhere, unexpected." Kristen says, trying to be encouraging. "Let's let them get ready." She motions towards the door. You walk to your room and slide the card into the slot, it unlocks and you walk in. You flip on the lights and sit down on the bed. "OW!" Someone says from under you and you jump off the bed. "ZAC!" You scream and grab him around the neck and give him a huge hug. "Oh my god! You scared the crack out of me, where have you been? What happened to your lip?" You ask, referring to the cut across it and the blood on his shirt. "Oh, well to answer your first question, I told you that I didn't want to go swimming so I turned around, when I turned back around you were gone. Then Amanda came up to me and said that you wanted me to meet you at the Laser Tag arena, I thought it was kind of weird that you would tell her to tell me but I went anyways. When I got there of course you weren't there. I began to walk back but Amanda followed me and kept asking me to come back to her room with her. We got to the lobby and she asked me again and I said no again and she flipped. She punched me in the face and ran into the elevator, that is where I was and that is why I have a cut on my lip." He answers. "Oh my god, I am so glad you are ok." You say holding him. "Here." Kristen says, handing him a wash clothe full of ice. "Put this on your lip or it is going to swell even more then it already is." He takes the wash clothe and puts it on his lip. "You better go get your stuff together." She says. "We are leaving in a half an hour." He gets up to leave but you pull him back down on the bed on top of you. "I missed you!" You say with a smile. You lean into kiss him, once your lips touch his he jumps back in pain. "I guess I won't be kissing you until this heals, it stings when it touches your lips." He says with a weak smile. You look pissed, not only has Amanda punched your Zac now she has made it impossible for you to kiss him, next time I see her, you think to yourself, I am going to beat the crack out of her. "I'll see you when I get my stuff together." He says heading for the door. You lean down and kiss him on the cheek and he half kisses you back. "Bye." You say. "Can you believe that girl?" You ask when Zac leaves the room. "She punched him, and now I can't kiss him. What am I supposed to do on the bus the whole way to LA? I can't kiss him, now I have nothing else to do. I am going to KILL her when I see her again." "I would kill her to if I were you." Kristen says while putting her clothes away. "Would you stop thinking about Amanda for ten freakin' seconds and get packed, once you are packed and we leave, then you won't have to worry about Amanda or Michelle for the rest of the tour, you will have him all to yourself, well of course except for his millions of fans who think he loves them even though they have never met him." "Ya, I guess your right." You say, shoving your clothes into the suitcase without even folding them. Kristen looks at you in disgust. "How can you do that." "Do what?" You ask. "Just shove your clothes into the suitcase?" She answers. "Stop worrying about my clothes and put yours away." You say with a smile. Won't they shut-up already? You say to yourself. Hanson has been practicing for 3 hours, with the occasi- onal break, becuase they fouled up on "Where's the Love" really bad during the concert. Of course you being Zacless for 3 hours isn't helping any. "Zac your comin' in late." You hear Taylor. "No I'm not, you guys are later then me (where did I get that from?:) !" He answers. "No we're not, can't you just take this seriously for once. You're the one who threw our harmonies off at the concert." Taylor argues back. "Guys." Isaac says. "I did not." Zac answers. "You're the one that played the wrong chord." "Guys." Isaac says a little louder. "Well if you wouldn't have speeded up, I wouldn't have had to rush, which made me hit the wrong chord and made you sing off key!" Taylor yells. "GUYS!" Isaac finally yells. "Let's run through it one more time. If we get it then we're done, if we don't get it, then we'll work on it later." "Ok." They agree. All the while you are laying in your bunk happy that the singing stopped. The same song over and over does get a little annoying. Then it starts again. "Oh Man!" You say out loud covering your ears with the pillow. As you do this you feel the bus begin to stop. "Yes, I can move." You say out loud. The bus comes to a stop and you hear the front doors open. Just as you are about to open the door Kristen walks in almost hitting you in the face with the door. She closse it behind herself and leans against it. "Um, Kristen, what are you doing?" You ask, a little confused. "Um..." She says looking around. "I...uh..need to... um...you can't...um." She stammers. "If your going to lie at least lie quickly!" You snap. "You can't go out there, there is a radiation leak, and there are martians from another planet getting ready to zap everyone they see." She says as you push her away from the door. You open the door and come face to face with Amanda. "What the hell?" You say. "I'm going on tour with you guys." She says, walking into the room with her bags. You walk out of the room. "WALKER!" You scream. He isn't in the bus. Isaac, Taylor, and Zac all turn their heads towards the bus when they hear you scream. "Well." Taylor begins. "She found Amanda." You come marching off the bus with me following you. You walk straight up to Walker who is talking to Mr. Greenburg. "Excuse me, can we talk Walker?" You ask. "Later Amelia." He says then keeps talking. "No now, I really NEED to talk to you." You say. "Ok, hold on a sec. Steve." He walks away to talk to you. "You can't let Amanda come on tour with us. We will get into to many fights. By the time we get done with the tour, it will look like she was run over by a tank." You say. "Amelia." He says. "You are going to have to learn to control yourself. Mr. Greenburg is a good man and is threatening to quit. This is our way of apologizing. You will just have to put up with her." He walks back over to Mr. Greenburg and leaves you there shocked. Ok, you say to yourself, then I will make this the worst summer she has ever had. You walk back onto the bus and go into the bunk room where Kristen and Amanda are already fighting. "I already have the top bunk!" Kristen yells. "Well, I'm the guest and I want the top bunk." Amanda says pulling Kristen's arm, trying to get her off the bed. "Amanda you're going to make me fall, and get hurt!" Kristen yells. "That's the point!" Amanda yells back. With that she yanks Kristen hard off the bed and she falls on the floor. Amanda climbs up the ladder and lays on the bed. "Thank you for your cooperation." She says. You lean down and see if Kristen's ok. She is just laying there holding her arm. "Are you ok?" You ask. "God, my arm!." She says, trying desperatly not to cry. You touch her arm to try to look at it. "OW!" She screams in pain. "Oh shit! Amanda, you broke her arm!" You yell. You feel the bus start to move again. "STOP THE BUS!" You scream. You run out of the bunk room. "STOP THE BUS!" The bus driver slams on the breaks. Everyone comes out of their rooms. "What's going on?" Walker asks. "Amanda just broke Kristen's arm!" You scream.
