The next morning, when amanda woke up, everyone was in the room eating. She had fallen asleep on the couch. She looked around, and noticed that Brian wasn't there. She grudgedly got up.
"Hey, where's Brian?" She asked.
"He's still in the other. Amanda, could you go and get him?" Kevin asked.
"Sure thing." Nick tossed Amanda a key, and she left for the guys room. She opend their door and went in. She saw Brian sitting at the table having a cup of coffee.
"Goodmoring, why aren't you next door?" She asked.
"Well," Brian said puting down his mug, "I just didn't feel like it. That's all."
"That's not like you. What's wrong?" Amanda sat in front of him at the table. She put her hands on his. He then held her hands and looked at her.
"Amanda, would you ever lie to me." His voice was calm and serious.
"No, why?" Her mind began to race. Did he find out about yesterday? How would he know? Chris and A.J. weren't going to tell... Did they? Did Brian see?
"No reason..." He got up, and pulled Amanda with him. He put his hands on her hips. "So how is my sweetheart doing this morning?" He pulled her closer.
"Fine... Now that I got your attention, why don't we go bacl to the others?"
"Why? We have this whole room to ourselves. Let's use this time creatively..." His hands moved onto her back and pulled her over. He kissed her lips softly at first, harder as he went along. He slowly moved them to the couch, where he made them lay. They continued to kisss each other. His hands wanderd over her body, while all Amanda could think about, was someone else... Eric.
Everyone else was in the other room havong coffee and some fruit.
"Well, only seven days left of freedom, what do you guys want to do?" Christine asked.
"Well, to tell you the truth, there's only four days left. We would like to go home for Christmas. We haven't seen our families for so long, it'd be nice to spend some time with them." Kevin said.
"You know, maybe I'll go home too. I wouldn't want to not spend Christmas with them." Caroline said.
"Yeah, same here." Cassie added.
"Not me, my parents are at some relatives place. I'm not in the mood to go." Lisa said.
"Well, my parents are off skiing somewhere. They were so glad when the found out that I wouldn't be comming, because they figuared that they could fit more stuff in the van." Christine added.
"So are you guys going to spend Christmas in the hotel?" Nick asked.
"Proboly. We might go out for dinner every now and then. Amanda is most probably stayin too. She couldn't wait to get away from the stress of her family." Lisa said.
"Well, we'll probably have to pack today, and leave tonight. We're going to leave the room booked, so you guys could use it, so when we get back on the 26th, it'll still be here for us." Howie said.
"I think I'll go and call the airport and see if they have two seats left." Caroline went to the phone and called. While she was on hold with the airport, Amanda and Brian walked in the door.
"Hmm... What took you two so long to get back?" Caroline asked. Amanda was a little imbaressed by that comment, so she just changed the subject.
"What are we doing today?"
"Packing. We're going home for Christmas, well, most of us are." Kevin said. Amanda looked at Brian. Brian smacked hi forehead.
"Oh yeah. I completely forgot. Geez, I'm real sorry Amanda."
"That's ok. I forgive you. Who's staying then?" Amanda asked.
"Just you and us," Christine pointed to her and Lisa.
"Oh yes, this is going to be fun..." Amanda said. Then Caroline cam back.
"We are sooo lucky, there are two seats left for a direct flight to Montreal. Lucky us."
"Well, why don't we get a head start on the packing. We have to be at the airport for 3." A.J. said. So everyone went to pack. Amanda, Lisa and Chris helped Cassie and Caro pack their stuff. The guys went to their room and cleaned up a bit too. At around 1:45, everyone was ready to leave. The guys kissed the girls goodbye, and they were off. Amanda closed the door to the room. The three of them sat on the couches. They had no idea what to do.
"Anyone got any briliant ideas of what we could do now?" Lisa asked in her sacastic tone.
"I do..." Amanda pulled a piece of paper out of her back pocket (she had fallen asleep before she could change). She went to the phone, and dialed the number.
"Hi, it's me... I'm fine, you?... So what are you doing later tonight?... Really, same here... Wanna get together?... Could you bring a couple of your friends?... Yeah, them... He is, oh poor baby... So does 8 o'clock sound good for you?... Yeah, same place as last time... Ok... Bye." Amanda hung up the phone.
"Who was that?" Lisa asked all confused.
"I think I have an idea..." Christine said."
"I'm sure you know who it is..." Amanda said back to her.
"What?!? Chris knows and I don't? That's not fair! Who was it?" Lisa started to whine.
"Calm down Lis, I just got us dates with three hot guys. Eric, Ric and Danny of No Authority." Amanda smiled.
"How did you get his number?" Lisa asked.
"Eric gave it to me, duh."
"That's not all he gave her... " Christine laughed to herslef.
"What's that sopose to mean Chris? Amanda what's going on here?" Lisa was royaly confused.
"Ok, calm down. I just up with Eric yesterday at the clun, and we shared some time alone together.. We sorta got to know each other well..."
"Oh my God, you kissed him? How come you didn't tell me?" Lisa was getting really mad.
"I didn't want everyone to know. The only reason Christine found out, is because A.J told her. He saw me kissing Eric. That's all."
"So... Does Brian know?" Lisa was poping questions in Amanda's face like crazy.
"No, and I'd like it to saty that way. He doesn't have to know this. I don't want him to find out. I'm just let it pass. I called Eric so we could do something so we wont be bored. If you don't want to go, then stau here. It won't bother me."
"Fine, I'll go..." Lisa said, even though she knew it was a bad idea.
"Same here, what's one little night going to do to us anyways?" Christine asked.
"So I guess we'll be meeting them at 8 then hun?" Amanda laughed to herself. Her friends were such suckers for a good time.
