" Hey Bri? " Brian looked at Howie as he walked to the car with him.
" Yeah D......"
" Did you notice that Mary was staring at Nick and vice-versa all the time. Like wassup man? I feel luuurve man! " Howie said as Brian put his hand into his pocket and dug for the keys.
" Yeah i noticed. I'm gonna knock him dead tonite. " a chill ran down Brian's spine as he froze on his tracks. Howie peers into Brian's eyes.
" What Bri? You look ...... " Brian knelt down gasping for air.
" Brian! " Howie helped Brian up just as Kevin ,AJ and Nick came running up to them.
" Frick talk to me Frick!" said Nick hugged Brian.
Brian cooled down and stretched himself. " Just needed some air. " Brian chuckled.
" Don't do that! " screamed AJ, Kevin,Howie & Nick simultaneously.
Brian laughed. " Chill guys! "
" Don't ask US to chill, you almost made us cry, back in 98. " They remembered Brian's heart operation very vaguely.
" Sorry my dear brothers! " Brian huddled everyone into a group hug.
" You're forgiven Littrell! " choroused the 4 guys.
"Ok like let's go D! Come on fellas!" said Brian finally finding the keys.
At dinner in their hotel room..........
" Frack i gotta ask you something. "
" Go on.... i know already Brian. Do i like Mary right? "
" I really do."
" That was straight Nick, usually you wouldn't confess so easily."
" I've grown so much Frick. I'm 24 Rok."
" Yeah my little Frack has grown." said Brian as he laughed.
After dinner at Mary's, Michelle got back home. In the living room.....
Michelle picked up the phone and started to dail for Mary , she heard a familier voice...
" Hey whatca doin? "
" Who is this this?" Michelle exclaimed.
" I want you... " trailled his voice. Michelle felt shivers run down her spine.
" Barry you asshole how did you get Sam's number?" Michelle reacted with shock.
" I have my ways......" he murmured.
" What do you want? "
" Nothing just wanted to tell you that i'll be there wherever you are Michelle."
She put down the reciever. Michelle picked up the receiver again and dailed Sam's cell phone number which he had given her earlier. Sam is with the guys in The Coffee Bean and his cell phone rang.....
" Hello Sam? This is Michelle..."
" Oh hi Michelle, wassup? " replied Sam enthusiastically.
" What time will you be back? " Michelle asked in return. She heard some noises and then Sam's voice.
" Ummm .......soon. You sleep first, i have the keys anyway...how was your job?"
" My job was great with the Backstreet Boys Sam and we will be flying to Los Angeles for the Awards ceremony! " said Michelle.
" Los Angeles? " exclaimed Sam. Brian looked at Sam.
" Yeah.....okay see you at home. " said Michelle and she hung up. Nick sipped his coke and looked at Sam.
" You guys are traveling again? " Sam asked the guys.
" Yeah don't worry about it okay. It'll be cool..." said Brian.
" Michelle......." Sam replied. He looked down.
" What's wrong? " asked AJ placing his arm on Sam's shoulder.
" Nothing....just look after her okay you guys. She's 25 but still acts silly." he said and Brian looked at Sam holding onto his coke cup tightly. He laughed.
" Brian's 26 and he's damn silly so there won't be a problem. "said Nick as he laughed.
" Frack you're dead boy! "said Brian as he laughed with him.
" Don't worry Sam." said Howie.
" But i thought you said it wasn't serious, come on we've been friends for so many years... " AJ said looking at Sam.
" Yeah i just wanted to make sure. Ok guys i have to go back now. "
" Michelle feeling lonely? "asked Brian. He so wanted to hold Michelle in his arms but he didn't know how Michelle felt about him.
" Nah that girl can look after herself. Rather than dancing she sings damn well. "said Sam
" Really? She's a good dancer you know. "said Kevin as he ate his fries.
" Don't worry about Michelle, she's in save hands. " said Nick as he took a bite off his sandwich.
" You sound like a doctor Nicky! " laughed Howie. Sam got up after hugging the guys.
Sam left The Coffee Bean. The fellas left soon after.
