" Boy i'm poofed. " Nick said as he burst into the hotel room after a big show.
" The fans are real cool......" howled AJ.
" Yeah man! Awsome......" trailed Kevin looking at Brian.
" Hey i think we got a message.... " Brian pressed the button on their answering machine as the other guys settled in. This time they stayed together in the same room because of the limited space in the hotel. Nick scurried off to play with his nintendo. You have one message. Goes the recorded voice of the machine.............Beep!

" Why hasn't she called me yet? Has the plane landed? Did it crash? Oh Mary shut up and sit down! Maybe she will call you tomorrow. Umm yeah maybe tomorrow " .......................
Pat came in the next day and the guys leave for Orlando for their next show. That day Michelle picked up the phone and called Mary.
" Hello is Mary there? "
" Hey you here already!!! "
" Yeah... in the flesh! "
" Cool when you comin' over? "
" How about now! Give me directions i'll take a cab." Mary gave Michelle directions.
" Un huh uh huh...okay! I'll be there in a jiffy!" said Michelle excitedly.
Michelle arrived at Mary's and they talk for very long.
" So Michelle........wanna listen to some CDs? "
" Okay ........what do you have? "
" Ummm Backstreet Boys.......Backstreet Boys and Backstreet Boys! " Michelle threw Mary an odd look. They looked familier to her but didn't bother to remember anyway.
" Sorry Michelle that's all i have right now. " Mary hardly sounded sorry.
" Don't you have Whitney Houston....okay okay play the cds you have! " Michelle looked at Mary's cd player. Mary put the BSB's first album.
" Umm they sound good, who are they again? "asked Michelle.
" Jeez Michelle THE BACKSTREET BOYS! "
" Okay okay don't scream."
" You haven't heard of them or seen their posters anywhwere? Like they are so famous! "exclaimed Mary with her eyes wide open.
" No Mary i'm not so into these stuff...you know that..."trailed Michelle.
" Yeah i do so....umm how is your relationship with Barry? "
" Barry? We broke up just before we gratuated. He disgusted me. I really hate him." said Michelle with her head down.
" Oh i'm sorry hon..." said Mary as she conforted Michelle.
" So how have you been Michelle?"
" I'm cool. Oh well tomorrow is another day."said Michelle
" Atta girl. That's the way."said Mary
They talked and laughed for long and Mary turns on the television. Just then the commercial for a BSB concert in Orlando flashes across the screen. ' Booking is open for today only as the show is tonight.... '
" Oh my god! Today? But such short notice! " exclaimed Mary.
" Uh..." started Michelle. She sees the commercial. " Oh!"
" Oh man! I can't go for the BSB show today damn! " yelled Mary.
" Why? "asked Michelle.
" I've got to do some stuff for my friend...oh jeez maybe next time...if there is! "
" Don't worry there will be a next time."
" I really love them......" said Mary sulking away.
" Hey i'm getting a job. Interested? "said Michelle quickly changing the subject.
" Where? "
" Somewhere..... Sam's recommending. I think he has friends in high places.......my 26 year old handsome brother, how about it? "
" Oh you mean Sam! Okay sugar! " Michelle hugged Mary for a while and than decided to head back.
" So you want the job right? "
" Yeah i do baby! "
" I gotta go Mary, Sam and i will pick ya up tomorrow be ready.
" Okay bye Michelle see ya soon" Mary walked Michelle out the door and dropped Michelle off in her car. Mary drove off. Michelle took the keys to unlock the door. She got a shock when a man stepped up to her from the side of the house. She looked up.
" Barry? " a chill ran down her spine.
" Hiya doll."he said suavely.
" How what...when?" she looked dead shocked.
" I just came today."
" How did you know i was...."
" Your mum."
" What! She didn't recongnise your god damn voice? " shouted Michelle
" Michelle i need you baby! Come back to me!" begged Barry holding onto Michelle's arms tightly.
" Take your hands off Barry! You're hurting me! " screamed Michelle. She quickly flung her bag across his face. ' Wham ' it hit him on the face.
" Michelle! You b*tch! What was that for?"
" Get lost Barry or i'm calling the cops!" yelled Michelle.
" You did well Michelle, just you wait! I'm gonna haunt you!"yelled Barry.
" Oooh i'm petrified. F*** off Barry. " she yelled as she quickly opened the door and ran in. Barry left, screaming the hell away.
Sam came home very late that night. He saw Michelle in the living room. She looked scared.
" Michelle? What's wrong?"he asked as he sat down beside her.
" Oh nothing....i'm just watching a thriller. See!" she pointed to the television screen.
" Oh okay.." laughed Sam.
" Don't stay up too late okay." he said as he went up to his room for the night.
Michelle picked up her phone and dailed for Mary.
" Hello Mary? "
" Yeah doll wassup? "
" Barry was here today..." Michelle said shaking under her breath.
" When? "
" After you left me. "
" What did he say? "
" He said.......he's gonna haunt me but i'm not bothered about it at all. "
" Michelle! "
" What? "
" This is serious okay. Some kinda ' Fatal Attraction' thing going on."
" Nah stop your imagination okay Mary! I'm already watching a triller as it is."
" What...' Till death do us part ' ? "
" I think so.. well i'm sleepy i'm gonna sleep now okay see ya."
" Take care Michelle. If there's anything Pleeeease call me."
" Okay okay bye. "
Michelle was feeling a little scared but not so much as to call the cops for help. She retreated to her room for the night.
At the hotel room in Orlando. They had the show yesterday night and it went really well.
" Frick............ " Nick moaned as he rubbed his eyes. He had slept well and wanted to sleep more.
" Come on Nick we're gonna be late for the Smash Hits interview! " said Brian getting ready to leave. Nick dragged himself out of bed. He freshened up and got changed.
He looked at Kevin who signalled to him to come fast.
" Aww man! Now? " Nick moaned as he slumped on the arm-chair.
" Sorry Nick! " said Kevin patting him on the back.
" Nicky is cranky......" Howie hooted.
" Well anything for the fans...... " he quickly pulls his cap over his head.
" Uh huh come on! " Kevin says and all of them goes out of the house and get into the rented car with Pat.
