"See ya all" I called as I climbed off the bus. It had been a long tour and I was happy to be home, even if it was 1 AM. I walked into my house (in Florida) and the first thing I noticed was my dog. Hmmmmm this is odd, Tyke is supposed to be at my mom and dad's. Then I noticed my sister. She was curled up on the couch. I just looked at her for a minute it was hard to believe she was 18 already. There was a note on the table.
Glad you're home. No, mom and dad aren't here they sent me to stay with you all summer. Please wake me up when you read this.
"Wakeup Chris." Some one was whispering in my ear. I stirred and turned around, to come face to face with my big brother.
"Brian" I screamed. "You're home! I missed you so much! How ya been?"
"I missed you too sis." He replied. Brian and I talked about everything. Finally about 4 AM we fell asleep. I would have slept all day all day except at about 10 the phone rang. Ring, ring, ring. I rolled over and picked up the phone.
"What in the hell do you want?!" I yelled.
"Who is this?" the voice on the other end answered.
"Christine." I said, "and you are?"
"Hey Christine it's Nick." My heart skipped a beat, and a quick picture of Nick popped in my head. See, I have a MAJOR crush on him.
"Hey Nick, what can I do for you?"
"Well we're supposed to have a BBQ at Brian's house and I was wondering if I could bring anything?"
"Ummm how 'bout potato chips?" I said
"K,that's great," he said "See-ya round noon." I rolled over and fell asleep.
I rolled over. blinked at the sunlight and then realized the time. It was 11:30 A.M. I literally jumped out of bed. You see the other BSB members were going to be here in 45 min. I threw on jeans and a shirt and ventured out in to the hallway. I peeked into Chrissy's room she was sleeping so soundly. Reminded me of life before I left. I was no longer around to check out her newest boyfriend, give her advice, or help her with sports. I crept into her room, my initial plan was to wake her up by screaming in her ear. However, after I took a good look at my sister I decided to just give her a shake. So I did. She rolled over and looked at me.
I looked of at my brother and smiled at him. I remember how he used to wake me up, water on the head. As much as I hated water on the head, I also miss those days. Sometimes I feel as though I'd trade anything for him to be home. I got out of bed and followed Brian down stairs.
"Are you going to stay in those?" he asked me referring to my PJs.
"I dunno, does it matter?" I asked.
"Well I'm sure the boys will want you to wear something better than that." he said. I slapped him(playfully) and got up to get dressed.
I left her room and BBQ'd some burgers. AS I was BBQing she walked down. Chris was wearing black capri pants with a baby blue tank-top. "Hey sis," I cooed.
"Shutup!" she shouted.
OMG,OMG I thought Nick the hot cute , guy is coming in like 20 minutes. I gotta call Teresa, "Be Right Back, Bri."
"OK sis," he said without looking up from what he was doing. I rushed upstairs and dialed TC.
"This better be damn important if you're waking me up." she answered.
"IT is come to Brian's house ASAP, and bring a b-suit. Bye" I hung up. I rushed downstairs and out the door to get some BSB and Journey CD's. I knew that Teresa and I would love to be serenaded. I wish Nick would hurry up and get here. But I knew that when he came, so would AJ, and well, Teresa has a MAJOR crush on him. I hope they get together.
"HeyGuys!" I said. "Chris!!!!" I screamed.
"Hey Bri!" Nick said. I personally think Christine has a crush on him. I hope not. I forbid it. O God, I'm starting to sound like Dad. I hope I don't seem too overprotective of her.
"Coming!" Chris shouted. Nick was all smiles when she came down. I wanted to shake him and yell STOP IT!
"Hey Chris!" Nick said.
My stomach was full of butterflies as I walked down the stairs. "Hey," I said. I noticed this look in Brian's eyes...not good. Damn Nick looked GOOD! He was wearing some Hawaiian board shorts and no shirt. I wanna become WAY better friends with him. I mean imagine, me, Nick Carter's girlfriend! Not that I only like him because he's famous. He's: cute and smart and sweet and the PERFECT guy. But Brian just doesn't understand what an 18 year old would do for a 21 year old as nice and sweet as Nick. Just then Teresa rang the doorbell and let herself in. Like robots. AJ, Brian, and Kevin greeted her and she received 3 different hugs. I ran up to her (feeling, well, maybe a bit jealous) and asked the boys to "Let me have a minute with her." She was still in a trance, since, she LOVES AJ.
"O my God, Teresa! Brian has the hots for you!"
"I know," she said with disgust. "AJ has the hot for me too!" she was sooo happy. So I left it at that. I went back to Nick and we walked through Brian's garden, (So what if there's not a living thing in it.) It was very romantic. Even with Kevin singing at the top of his lungs for Teresa. Howie started to trail, behind us. God go away I thought. I looked back at Teresa she was having the time of her life with AJ and Bri fighting over her.
I saw Chris walk off with Nick into my over grown DEAD garden. Nick better not get serious with her 'cause then I'll be sooo mad at him. He's my best friend and all, but oh well AJ and Kevin were flirting with Teresa so I followed her Howie who was following Nick and Chris. She was chatting with Nick continuously. Then Nickolas put his arm around her and I heard him say to her,
"Wanna go clubbing with me tomorrow night?" "NO" I screamed. This was going to far! She couldn't go out with him. She just couldn't geeze now I sound like dad.
I was about to say "Yes I will" to this date, but Brian had to scream "NO!" I got soooo mad at him that I forgot everything and turned and pushed Brian into the bushes. I ran back to Nick and said
"Sorry,it's a brother-sister thing. Of course I will" I was mad at Brian. How could he do this to me? And then Howie was following us, I don't know why. But anyway, back to Nick. He looked into my eyes and said
"Great!" Then he gave me a hug and I stuck my tongue out at Brian as he brushed off thorns and leaves from his shirt.
I'm soo damned pissed! My best friend is falling for my sister. No way. AJ was flirting with Teresa, so I guess Kev, Howie and I are loners.
I walked over to Brian and sat down. Howie was off doing whatever.
"Brian, why does AJ get Teresa? I like her....a lot." I said.
"So do I," he replied, "But at this point I've got bigger problems." He said glancing at Chissy and Nick.
"Nick's all over her isn't he." I asked, trying to sound brotherly, but I was happy for Nick and Chris! But Teresa really blows my mind. She is soo sweet and hot. AJ gets all the girls. Not that I don't get plenty. . .but he gets all the GOOD girls. Oh well he is younger than me.
OMG I'm going out with Nick Carter! WOW Well Nick went off to help AJ flirt with Teresa. Maybe Nick is acting like a real player but he keeps winking and blowing kisses at me, so I guess it's ok. Bri and Kev look like they're having a serious talk, and Brian keeps scowling at me. I think he hates me now. But he'll get over it...I hope. He may be over protective, but he's a hell of a brother. . .that's for sure.
"Christine, get over here please," Kevin called. I slowly walked over with my head down to the bench where they were sitting. I knew it was serious if he called me Christine.
"Do you know he's three years older than you? He's my best friend. You could wreck millions of girls lives?" Brian asked.
"So why should I care? He doesn't. You're the only one who has a problem with this." I wanted to beat the crap outta him. But I didn't cause Nick was looking at me and so was Howie. I did a double-take on Howie. What was he staring at? The thought that 2 Backstreet Boys were in love with me was pretty cool. But all I wanted was Nick. Howie could just buzzoff.
"Chris," Howie called. God, what does he want now?
"Yes?" I replied.
"Come here," I walked toward him and he motioned for me to follow him.
"Tell her she's got nice hair." I whispered in AJ's ear.
"You've got great hair." AJ said smiling. I decided to help AJ flirt because B-Rok was giving me and Christine a look.While helping AJ, I saw Howie lead Chrissy into the house.
"Hey." I said to Teresa. "Follow them and make sure they don't do anything." I said to her.
"Sure." she said. But she looked dismayed at the thought of leaving AJ.
I led Chris into the house. Damn she's beautiful! She puts the sun in sunshine. She followed me into the kitchen into the living room. She sat on the couch and I sat on the coffee table.
"What do you want?" she asked.
"I want to know your feelings about me. I want to know if we can be more than friends. Even though Nick likes you..." Howie replied/asked.
"Well...I'm sure we could be almost best friends, but not boyfriend and girlfriend. I'm sorry and all but I gotta stay true to Nick." she sounded sad but happy to defend Nick.
"Oh, ok." I said quietly. Damn Nick gets all the good stuff. I caught a glimpse of TC peeking in on us. "What are you doing?" I asked her.
