Back at the girls house, Nick had brought Amanda to her bed, and she was laying in it, staring blankly at the wall. Nick was sitting on the floor next to her. After a long silence, she spoke up. "Nick, was John right..." "Huh? About what?" He asked, looking over at her. "About what he said about me..." Her voice cracked a bit when she said that. Nick grabbed her hand, and looked deep into her eyes. "Amanda, I don't want you to believe a single word that guy ever said to you. He only said those things to hurt you. Everything he said was a lie." Amanda wiped a few tears from her eyes. "Honestly?" Nick sighed, and got on the bed, taking her in his arms. "You are beautiful, and have so much going for you. You have a great best friend, a bunch of new friends, a really nice, new, hot boyfriend..." Amanda giggled a bit, "and don't you think otherwise. If you ever doubt that, even for a single second, come tome, and I'll show you that you're wrong." Amanda smiled, and hugged Nick tightly. "I love you Nick. I don't ever want to let go of you..." He kissed her cheek. "Then don't. I won't leave, so don't..."
Howie, Kevin and A.J. finally were able to go inside, because the last of the police had left. A.J. decided it was time for him to go home, so he said bye, and left. Howie and Kevin headed up to their rooms, tired from the long evening they just had. "Man, I can't wait to get some sleep." Kevin said, rubbing his eyes. "Me too... I'm glad that that guy won't be coming back..." Howie replied, yawning. "Yeah. Hey, did Bri go to bed?" "Already? He's usually still up watching TV..." They both saw a light on in his room, and went to see if he was there. Kevin, opened his cousins bedroom door, looked in, and quickly closed it. "What??? What was it???" Howie asked. "I'm just going to say this, I saw Brian's shirt on the ground, and he wasn't alone..." Howie stared at him wide-eyed. "Man... He's got it good..." Kevin just laughed. "Poor, poor Howie...We have got to find you a girl..."
