"Tracey, Mr. Bitters wants to see you," my little sister looked at me slightly shocked. Cassie was always getting me in trouble but I could never stay mad at her.
"What did I do this time?" I looked up from my desk she just shrugged and walked out of my room. I sighed and shut down my computer, I had a three page book report due tomorrow and I only had one page done, the worst part was my phone going off and Gustavo being there. "Not now, please not now," I whispered answering the door and walking down the hall. "Hello?" I closed my eyes waiting for an angry Gustavo to scream in my ear.
"Trace, I need you over here immediately, I have…a surprise," he sounded disgusted when he said surprise but I had no clue what he was talking about.
"Uh, Gustavo I have a book report due tomorrow and I am right now going to Bitters office, can this surprise wait?" I was hoping for a yes and praying for the yes.
"No, after the meeting GET OVER HERE!" he yelled as the elevator reached the lobby. I hung up and found Mr. Bitters standing in front of his door with two cops.
"What did I do now?" I asked getting a little nervous as the cops grabbed my arms and pushed me in the office. "Whatever I did I promise I will clean it up, fix it, or whatever," I pleaded as Mr. Bitters sat in front of me.
"Tracey, chill nothing happened to you, I just want to congratulate you on your newest soundtrack and I would like to know if you would play for my niece's party, she really likes you," he asked pulling a contract out and shoved it in front of my face.
"Are you feeling ok sir?" I asked as he nodded.
"Just please she will not stop telling her friends you are coming, please I will give you three hundred dollars and free access to the Big Bowl," he said as I quickly agreed on that and signed on the form. "Thank you and the show is in three days," he smiled before I was picked up and shoved out the door. Cassie was sitting in front of the door waiting for me to come out.
"Sooooo?" she asked in her childish way rocking back and forth.
"So, I have to perform at a party," I said ashamed as my little sister began laughing. "Shit!" I screamed looking at my watch seeing I was twenty minutes late. "Excuse my language, tell mom I am going to be late for dinner," I said running for the door. I jumped into the limo that awaited me and was stopped by my driver.
"You are in so much trouble, ma'am," he started to giggle.
"I know Mike just drive and fast." We pealed out and flew up Sunset Blvd. I got out of the car and was greeted by Kelly who didn't look to happy.
"Where have you been?" she reprimanded me.
"I know I know, just let's get up there," I said as we ran in the elevator and rode it all the way up to see a very unhappy Gustavo.
"I said come right AFTER!"
"I did but he held me too long please don't be too mad," I said as he laughed making Kelly and I look a little confused at him.
"Come here, I have a little surprise," he covered my eyes and began pushing me.
"Kelly what is he doing?"
"Honestly, Tracey I have no clue," she answered. I soon felt someone taller than me hugging me and when Gustavo let my eyes go I couldn't see anyone since my face was buried in the persons chest. I instantly knew who it was when I breathed in the intoxicated smell of strong cologne. It was so empowering that I began coughing.
"Tracey, I can't believe it's you, my little…"
"Watch it James I am no longer little," I snapped as he looked shocked at me.
"Wow my sister has actually grown up," he hugged me nearly strangling me. "Oh, Trace you remember the guys right?" he asked as Logan locked with my eyes.
"Of course I do," I answered hugging Logan and then Kendal and Carlos. "So what are you guys doing here?"
"Well we are taking your advise you did say come to LA and pick up the career," Carlos looked at me.
"She did, did she?" I heard Gustavo snap behind me. "Well for once you did a really good thing," he smiled as I looked pretty shocked at him.
"Hey Gustavo can I split since I need to finish that report," I pleaded as he nodded. I ran to the door but was stopped by him calling me back.
"One more thing, you need to show the dogs around," he said pointing to my brother and his friends. I sighed and waved them toward me as they followed me.
"Whoa, Trace you got your own limo," Carlos said looking at my car. I nodded and we all booked into the limo and pulled out back to the Palm Woods.
"You guys get your room I really need to finish this project," I ran passed them and up to my room. "Cassie not now I really need to work on this," I ran past her and began typing on the computer. I was too happy to see James again so I really didn't care what I got on this project I am an 'A' student one 'F' wouldn't hurt. By the time I finished writing I heard a knock come from the door.
"Who are you?" I heard Cassie ask as I looked through my room door and saw James looking at his littlest sister shocked.
"You mean you don't remember me?" he asked as I chuckled he looked up and walked past Cassie and toward me.
"Hey, you aren't allowed in my house," Cassie snapped at James.
"She doesn't remember me," he looked hurt and devastated. "How on earth doesn't…" James stopped as we heard someone sniffing behind James.
"James, is that you?" mom called as he turned around in joy. He hugged her and held onto her as she began crying.
"Mom, how old was Cass when we left?" I asked as James put her down.
"Well let's see you were about ten and James was 11 which means Cassie was 6 months old," she answered as James and I looked at each other. "What are you two thinking?" she asked instantly remembering when we were younger.
"Cass, come to the pool with me," I said as James winked at me. I changed and helped my seven year old sister to pick what she was to wear. We went down to the pool and sat in my favorite seats.
"Can I go in the pool?" Cassie asked me as I nodded. "Tracey, Trace, Tracey look at me," I heard Cass calling me I really didn't want to open my eyes but she wouldn't stop annoying me until I did so when I did she jumped in and I smiled when she surfaced, I was going to go back with my eyes shut until something or should I say someone caught my eye.
"Hey, mind if I take this seat?" Logan asked as I shook my head and he laid down right next to me. "Can you believe it, it has been seven years since we last saw each other?" he asked as I laughed.
"Yeah, what you calling our video chats not seeing each other," I laughed as Logan got up. "I'm sorry, it's just I haven't been with you in forever and I missed you," I said as he smiled. He sat next to me and intertwined my hand with his. "One question how are we going to keep this a secret?" I asked as he leaned over and kissed me. "Logan wait," I said pushing him back.
"What, we both know that a boyfriend is supposed to kiss his girlfriend," he said as I nodded.
"But I don't feel we are really a couple you asked over the computer. Would you ask me here that is if you really cared about me," I said as he looked at me slightly confused.
"Fine, would you be my girlfriend?" he said as I kissed him.
"Yes," I said sitting up. "So when do we tell them?"
"Everyone, especially my brother," I answered as I saw them coming toward us. "How about now?" I asked pointing to them as Logan jumped into the pool. "I'll take that as a no," I laughed as James sat down next to me.
"Take what as a no?" James asked as I looked blankly at him.
"Um…huh," I froze blankly starring at him. I do admit I was afraid to tell him about Logan and me so I kept stuttering until Logan came out of the pool and walked over to me.
"She didn't have an eye lash in her eye," he said looking at me as everyone nodded and walked to other seats.
"Thank you," I whispered as he nodded helping me up off my seat. "What are you doing?" I asked dumbfounded as Logan picked me up and threw me into the pool laughing. Even though I was mad I couldn't help but laugh. My smile soon left when I heard my phone go off I instantly knew who it was since no one except Gustavo calls this early. "James can you give me that?" I asked as he walked toward my ringing phone. He picked it up and walked to me.
"Hello?" he answered putting his hand on my forehead as I tried reaching for the phone.
"GIVE me it now," I said grabbing his wrist as I could hear Gustavo screaming at James. He laughed and handed me the phone. "I am so sorry, sir," I pleaded in the phone watching at James who continued to laugh that is until I pushed him in the pool. "I'm going where?" I screamed feeling my legs getting weak.
