"Welcome girls to the Backstreet Crew." Howie said giving us hugs.

"Thanks D." I said returning his hug.

"Okay guys, I'm gonna show you to your rooms and introduce you to everyone else." said Brian grabbing a couple of bags. AJ and Howie followed his moves.

"Melanie, you and Tina get this room." He said pointing to a door on the left. "Amanda and Vanessa get this room." He pointed to his right. "And Jenni, I hope you didn't mind but you're sharing with Mandy, Nick's girlfriend." pointing down the hall.

"Thanks Brian."

"No problem. Now whose luggage are these?"

"Brian has mine."

"AJ, you have Vanessa's and mine."

"So I guess these are yours."

"Thanks Howie. You're sweet" Tina said giving him a hug.

"It's okay. We have to get going now see you guys later."

"Yup. Peace guys."

In Melanie and Tina's room

"They are so nice. I'm really gonna have a good time."

"Yeah me too."

"What's wrong Mel? You don't seem as excited as I am."

"Oh I'm excited. I'm just thinking about some stuff."

"Like what?"

"I was thinking about my life. Everything up till now. How amazing this is. It's just happening so fast."

"Why are you thinking about that? We're here to have a good time."

"I know but I still can't believe it's happening you know?"

"I know what you mean but hey get over it!"


"Look, I'm not going to unpack because we're gonna leave soon, so I'm gonna go find Brian."

"You have the hots for him don't cha?"

"Oh yeah! He's such a babe. Care to join me?"

"Nah maybe later. I promised Mom I'd called her when we get here. I'll be down soon."

"Okie See yas."

"Bye and have fun!"

"I will."

In Amanda and Vanessa's room

"We just got here and I'm loving every minute of it so far."

"Me too! The guys are so nice! This is a girl's dream come true!"

"That's what I'm saying."

"I wonder when the tour starts."

"Probably in a month or so. We do have to learn the dance routines and everything."

"I suppose so. I can't wait for the tour to start. It's gonna be so much fun."

"It's gonna be one awesome tour!"

"Yup. Wanna go find the guys and hang out since there's nothing to do here?"


"C'mon let's go." Both girls jumped off their beds an ran out the door.

In Jenni's Room

"Excuse me, but who are you?" a tall blond asked.

"I'm Jenni. One of the new dancers. You must be Mandy." She said holding out her hand.

"Right... Brian told me I was having a new roommate. Yup I'm Mandy. It was nice meeting you!"

"Yeah same here."

"Now if you excuse me I have a phone call to make." Mandy said leaving the room.

After 20 minutes of getting settled in, Jenni decided to visit the dancers and hang with them. She knocked on their doors but no one answered, so she decided to go catch up with the guys. Little did she know she would be having company.

With the guys....

"Are the new dancers here yet?"

"Yeah like an hour ago."

"Really? what are they like?"

"They're real sweet and pretty cute too." AJ said smiling.

"Just then 3 of the 5 dancers walked in.

"Hey guys."

"Hey Amanda, Tina, Vanessa! What's shaking?"

"We were bored and decided to come meet the rest of the guys and hang out."

"Right... Kevin, Nick these are our new dancers Amanda Turner, Tina Mitchell, and Vanessa McKain. Girls this is Nick Crater and Kevin Richardson."

"Hey guys." Said a voice from behind.

"And that's Jenni Andrade."

"Nice to meet you all." Said Nick.

"Same here. Um.. guys where's Mel? I knocked on your door but no one answered."

"Oh right. I forgot, ahe's on the phone with her mom. They're real close."

"Oh Ok then."

"I catch ya laters. I have something planned." Kevin said walking away.

"So wassup guys?"

"Not so much."

"The guys and I are going to a club to hang out tonight you girls wanna come?"

"Sure! What time?"

"Around 7:30"

"Okie dokes. I'm gonna go get ready." Vanessa said.

"Me too." Jenni and Amanda said in unison.

"What should I wear?" the 3 girls asked among themselves.

Slowly everyone left the room. All except Tina and Brian.

"Are you going tonight Tina?"

"Of course! Are you?"

"I'll think about it. I don't really like clubs. I think I'll stay here and play on Nick's play station."

"Aww you're a party pooper."

"Oh all right. If it makes you happy. I'll come."

"Great. I'll go get ready and ask Mel if she wants to come. See ya at 7:30."

"Bye Teens."
