Meanwhile inside the room, Gina was in shock at what Liz had just said to her. "Gina…what just happened?" he still didn’t know that Liz liked him. Just then, Gina burst out in tears. "This wasn’t supposed to happen…" she cried. "I hurt my best friend in the entire world!" she cried some more. "Shh…everything will be OK." Nick said trying to comfort her. They both hugged and Gina held onto him for dear life. "Why did Liz overreact like that??" Nick questioned. Gina wiped some tears away from her eyes and realized that Nick had to find out now. "Nick…there’s something I have to tell you." *Oh God I can’t believe I’m doing this.* "I have a feeling this is gonna change everything." He said looking at Gina lovingly. *You don’t know how right you are…* "Nick…Liz…she..she likes you." Gina spit out quickly. "What? She likes me?? Are you sure?" He asked incredulously. "Yeah..I’m sure…" Gina said, tears welling up in her eyes. She turned away from Nick, but he took her by the shoulders and turned her around. "Come here." Nick took her in his arms and they both sat there hugging each other.
In the guys’ room, Liz was tearfully telling AJ and Howie what happened up until then. "It’s not that you guys aren’t great…I just like Nick more…and now…I don’t know how I’ll get over this." she said looking downward. Howie put his hand on her shoulder sympathetically. AJ hugged her again and Liz cried softly on his shoulder. Howie handed her a tissue and said, "Maybe you should try to talk this over with Gina? I mean..she can be a pain..no..I know she’s a pain..but this shouldn’t break up your friendship." "Yeah..I could come with you for moral support." AJ suggested. Liz sniffled and took the tissue from Howie. "Thanks." She said and smiled weakly. "Thanks AJ..but I think I have to face this alone. Thank you both for listening to me babble." She slightly laughed. "Don’t mention it." Howie said and hugged her. "Yeah..anytime." AJ added, hugging Liz tightly. "Well, I’m off to see the Wizard..no..the Wicked Bitch of the West is more like it." She said grumply. "Wish me luck!" she yelled in the room. "Good Luck!!" the guys said in unison. She smiled and went off to find Gina & Nick.
*The boy is mine. You need to give it up. Had about enough. It's not hard to see. The boy is mine. I'm sorry that you seem to be confused. He belongs to me. The boy is mine.*
