Science-Fantasy93: Check it out! A new JatieFantasy story!
Jatieluv: Yes, we know...another story when we need to update the other two...heh heh...we've been getting attacked left and right by plot bunnies...We're soooooo sorry!
Science-Fantasy93: Please, please, please don't hate us! Like Jatieluv said, we're so incredibly sorry!
Jatieluv: And we have no idea (see what I did there? (; ) how we've come up with so much stuff...It's insane...
Science-Fantasy93: But in any case, enjoy the first installment of our BTR episodes - Jatie style!
Jatieluv: Yep, we've decided to do a series of one-shots based on every episode. These are things we (and probably most of you) would have wanted to see happen. While the episodes are going to be in order, the stories aren't going to go along with each other. For instance, if Jatie happens in one chapter, don't be alarmed if they aren't together in another :)
Science-Fantasy93: But they'll be filled with sweet and funny moments between James and Katie, and plenty of sibling moments between Katie and Kendall.
Jatieluv: And of course the other guys too. Well, we hope you like our version of Big Time Audition. Enjoy!

Warnings: Mild language
Ages: James, Kendall, Logan, and Carlos are 16, and Katie is 15.
Ow. Ow. Owowowowowowowow. I am never listening to Kendall and Carlos again. It's their fault that we're all sitting, covered in ice bags, in the Knights' living room, while still shaking from the memory of getting beat up by the girls' hockey team.
"I told you," Logan said, looking pointedly at Kendall.
"Oh, shut up," Kendall retorted, throwing a pillow weakly at him.
"Oooh..." Carlos said, reaching for the remote. "Let's watch some music videos."
Our heads snapped up as the Pussy Cat Doll's new music video for When I Grow Up came on the TV screen.
"Pussy Cat Doll's make the pain go away," Kendall said.
"Uh huh," we all agreed with moans.
Ignoring the pain, I leapt onto the coffee table and did a spin.
"What are you doing?" Logan asked.
I did another spin, running my fingers through my hair. "One day, I'm gonna be a famous pop star, and I'm gonna marry Nicole!"
"Marry Nicole from the Pussycat Dolls?" Logan scoffed.
Carlos grinned. "What about Kit-Kat?"
I paused and blushed. "Why don't you say that a little louder, Carlos? I don't think New York heard you."
"I told you," Katie said, walking through the front door with her friend, Val, "I don't want to go out with-" she paused, looking at us. "What happened to you guys?"
"Your brother," I spat, "thought it would be a fantastic idea to soak the girls' field hockey team."
Her eyes widened. "Wait...You're the four idiots who did that?"
"Yeah, we're the four idiots who did that," Logan grumbled. "But in James' and my defense, it was Kendall's and Carlos' idea."
Katie rolled her eyes and headed into the kitchen, Val following her. "Of course it was,"
I groaned. "Get me another ice pack while you're in there?"
"Sure!" she called back.
"Uh huh." She walked out a minute later and handed me the ice pack.
"Thanks," I said again, slapping it on my bruised face.
Katie gave me a small smile. "No problem. And a word of advice? Don't ever listen to my idiotic brother."
"Never again," I agreed.
"Oh, hey," she said, after taking a sip of water from her water bottle. "You know Gustavo Rocque is having auditions down at the movie theater, right?"
I sat straight up. "He is? Right now? The Gustavo Rocque? Major music producer Gustavo Rocque?"
She took a step back. "Easy there, hotshot."
"I have to get down there right now!" I jumped to my feet. "I need a car! I need a ride! Logan! You have your learners permit! You can drive me!"
"I need an adult in the car," he told me.
"Look!" Carlos cried, pointing at the TV. "Sway is talking about it!"
We all turned to the TV to listen to what he had to say.
He pretty much said what Katie had told us, but said the auditions were being held until 5.
We all looked at the clock. 4:30. We had to move!
"Tick-tock," Katie teased.
"We have to do something!" I yelped.
Katie shook her head. "Mom's not available. She doesn't get off of work for another hour."
"Logan, drive me!" I cried. "You're the only one who the DOL will let behind the wheel!"
"I told you, I need an adult in the car!"
"So, we'll get someone! Kendall, do something!"
"Why me?" he asked.
"Because you're the 'plan guy'! You always come up with some fantastic plan when Logan clams up!"
"I do no- I know how to get there."
Which is how, five minutes later, we were hustling the Knights' elderly neighbor into her car, and Logan was sliding into the driver's seat.
"Drive!" Carlos cried.
Logan stepped on it, skidding slightly, but quickly straightening the wheel out.
We arrived at the movie theater with 1 minute to spare and hurried inside.
A young woman was calling out for auditions.
I ran over. "My name's James Diamond and I want to be famous!" I started singing and she slapped a number on my chest. "Ow."
The guys joined me and she asked if they wanted to be famous too, slapping a number on them also.
Logan and Kendall argued, while Carlos began to sing, horribly off-key.
She told me my number was next and I quickly switched with Logan.
Logan's new number was called, and he headed in. He came out 30 seconds later, shaking. "He's Satan with bug-eyed glasses!" he gasped out, curling up into a chair, shuddering furiously.
My eyes widened and when I heard my new number was next, I switched again, this time with Carlos.
Carlos just shrugged and walked into the room. He came out a minute later, whooping. "Guess who's not going to Hollywood!"
Kendall laughed and I tried to switch numbers again, but he stopped me and we both stood up. "James, this is your dream, not mine. Now remember, opportunities like this come once in a life time. Now grab onto that dream with both hands and go BIG TIME!" he said, pushing me into the room.
I stepped onto the stage, gulping nervously, and began to sing into the microphone.
He stopped me a few seconds later, telling me I had no talent.
"Wait a second!" Kendall jumped out from behind the row of seats he had been hiding behind. "No talent? No talent? You're the one with no talent! You haven't had a hit in 10 years!" he added.
"Hey! Girl to my Heart by Boyquake was a hit nine years ago!" Gustavo retorted.
"Hmmm, let me see if I can remember that '90s rock classic - " and he leaped up onto the table, breaking out into song and dance.
Security was called shortly after and we ended up back at Kendall's house...with the cops.
"Wow," Katie said when she opened the front door.
We all waved a little abashedly at her.
She grinned. "That must've been one hell of an audition."
"Just get Mom, so she can sign a release form," Kendall gritted out.
Katie's grin widened. "Mom!" she yelled.
Mrs. Knight came into sight. "What is it, Katie - ohhhh. What did you boys do now?" she demanded, hands on her hips.
Kendall looked at her. "Mom! Remember that time I saved you from choking? Wow! That was close! And I love you."
Mrs. Knight just sighed, and signed the release forms.
We all filed inside and lined up in front of the fire place.
Mrs. Knight stood in front of us. "What happened? The truth now!"
"Miss Majecowsky helped us try to make James famous," Logan spoke up.
"But this producer guy was super mean to everyone," Carlos told her.
"So I sang him the Giant Turd Song and there was a tiny fight... but NOBODY GOT HURT!" Kendall added.
"And now I'm really sad," I said quietly.
Carlos patted my shoulder as I stared at the ground sadly.
Mrs. Knight shrugged. "Okay! Who wants sandwiches?"
"Ooh Me!" we all said
"Wait!" Katie said, stopping her mom. "That's it? That's your interrogation? You didn't put the screws to em' or slap em' with the hard cheese!"
Mrs. Knight gave her a long look. "I don't know what any of that means, but you are not watching Fox anymore."
Katie paused. "Well, can I at least hear the giant turd song?"
We all grinned at each other, and began singing.
"Awesome," she said.
The doorbell rang and Katie walked over to answer the door. "Mom!" she screamed again.
Mrs. Knight walked over. "What now?"
"Gustavo Rocque is here," she answered.
"You've come back for me!" I screamed, dashing over to the enormous man standing in the doorway, and throwing my arms around him.
He pushed me off. "I didn't come back for you. I came back for him," he said, pointing at Kendall.
I stepped back, shock coursing through my body. For Kendall? He didn't even want to be a singer! He hadn't been taking lessons since he was 5! He didn't have a perfectly trained voice! Nope! That was me!
"What?" Kendall cried.
His assistant smiled sweetly at Mrs. Knight. "Can we come in?"
She nodded. "Sure. I'll go make some tea," she said, before running off to the kitchen.
We all settled back into the living room, and Gustavo began to speak.
He talked about all the perks and what would happen. "So," he said, looking at Kendall, "do you want to come to LA and make a demo?"
Kendall paused and then looked at all of us, before turning back to Gustavo. "No."
Gustavo did a spit-take. "WHAT?"
"No," Kendall repeated.
The teacup shattered in Gustavo's fist. "I'm gonna take a minute. I'm gonna take a minute." He got up and dashed outside. A moment later, we heard the sound of breaking pottery.
His assistant winced and placed money on the table, for everything he had broken. She handed Kendall a card. "We're leaving tomorrow at 2, call if you change your mind," she said, before walking out.
Katie stood up and smacked Kendall on the back of the head. "Idiot. I'm taking a 20," she informed him, taking the money and heading towards her room.
We all looked at each other.
"And that's my sister," Kendall murmured.
"I don't know what happened," Mrs. Knight muttered. "I never dropped her on her head as a baby, not once!"
"She's way too devious and smart," Logan said, shaking his head.
"Tell me about it," Carlos agreed, looking a little scared.
Katie walked back out, her cell to her ear. "Mom, is it cool if Val spends the night?"
"Yeah, yeah, it's fine," Mrs. Knight said distractedly.
Katie smiled. "She said it's fine," she said into the phone. "I'll meet you half way."
"It's dark out," Logan said to her.
"James will walk with me."
"Yeah, of course," I agreed.
"See? Okay, Val. I'll see you in 10. Bye!" she chirped, hanging up.
I bundled up once more and waited for her to finish layering up.
Katie finished a few seconds later and we walked out the door. "You okay?"
"Yeah, I'm fine," I grumbled, kicking at a pile of snow.
"No, you're not."
"Well, why wouldn't I be? I mean, just because Kendall got the chance of lifetime, which should've been mine, and is now going to blow it off, while I pant enviously after him, I mean, it's no big deal, right? I mean, it's not like I've been working towards this entire day my entire life!"
She smiled sympathetically and slipped a gloved hand into mine. "It'll work out."
"How? How do you know for sure?"
She shrugged. "I don't know. I just feel like something good's going to happen for everybody."
I snorted. "I doubt it. Good things only come to Kendall. He's got a charmed life."
"That's not true and you know it."
I gave her a long look. "Wanna bet?"
"Well, you're co-captain of the hockey team, you're amazingly good looking and you have me."
I rolled my eyes. "I don't have you. We're not dating, remember?"
I stared at her. "Are you suggesting we make it official?"
"Only if you want to."
"I- I want to," I choked out.
She smiled teasingly. "You don't sound so sure."
"I'm sure," I told her, reaching for her waist and pulling her towards me.
She glanced up at me. "Okay."
We stared at each other, and then I lowered my face, covering her lips with mine.
She stood on her toes and kissed me back.
It was freezing, the snow falling onto our faces, but neither of us could be bothered to notice.
Katie pulled back after another few seconds. Her eyes fluttered open and she looked into my eyes.
"Wow," I breathed out, my breath forming a cloud in the air.
"Uh huh," she agreed.
"Ummm...we should keep going...Val's probably waiting for us by now."
"Ohmigosh! I completely forgot!" she cried and started walking.
I smiled and took her hand in mine.
She smiled and a light blush was covering her cheeks.
We soon reached Val, who was waiting for us, tapping her foot. "I was just about to text you!" she cried to Katie.
"Sorry," Katie said sheepishly.
"What kept you?"
Katie blushed. "Uhh...my new boyfriend?"
"Ohmigosh, who?" And then she noticed our gloved hands intertwined. "About freaking time!"
Katie smiled. "Uh huh."
"Yeah...Anyways, let's get back to my house...I'm cold," she whined.
Val nodded and skipped beside us.
"You missed all the fun," Katie told her.
"What? Oh no. What did the boys do now?"
Katie grinned. "They were brought back by the cops."
"What did you idiots do now?" Val demanded of me.
I filled her in on what happened as Katie snickered.
"So, you were all set to get your big break - and then Kendall, who wants to be a professional hockey player, got it instead? Hmmm...Maybe you should audition for the Minnesota Wild. If you get the spot, revenge will be yours!"
"You're crazy," Katie informed her.
"But adorably so," she argued.
Katie shrugged. "Ehh...And there will be no revenge!"
"Yeah, who needs to be on the Minnesota Wild's hockey team, when he could just date you to get revenge," Val said with a grin.
"Yeah, but it's the truth. Kendall is soooo protective of you. He's, like, worried or something that if you date someone who you actually like, the boy will automatically replace him as the number one boy in your life."
Katie bit her lip. "I know. But...he's going to have to deal with it."
Val shrugged. "Whatever. I just can't wait to see the look on his face when he finds out you two are dating."
Katie cracked a smile. "Me either."
"And he's still sore enough that I don't think he'll be attacking me anytime soon," I pointed out.
She nodded. "And if he decides to, well, he'll have to go through me."
"I'm sure he won't," Val assured us both. "He loves you two way too much."
"Yeah," Katie agreed as we approached her house and walked inside.
The others were still sprawled out in the living room.
Kendall seemed to be regretting his split second decision to dance on the table, because he was flat on the couch, and with every movement, he let out a groan.
"Are you okay, big brother?" Katie asked.
"I will be," he moaned, managing to sit up a little bit.
Logan looked at us and his eyes widened, seeing our hands.
"What?" Kendall said to Logan. "You look like someone just told you that Minnesota was suddenly going to be turned into a tropical paradise."
"For two," Logan said.
He pointed to us.
Kendall's eyebrows shot up. "Whoaaaa...No...No...No!"
Katie gave him a look. "Whoaaaa...Yes...Yes...Yes!"
"You- James- no! You can't date him! You can't!"
"Yes I can."
"No you can't! He's my best friend! You can't date him! It's against the little sister and best friend code!"
"You can't tell me who I can and cannot date, Kendall."
"Yes I can! You're my little sister! Yes I can!"
"No you can't!"
"Mom!" Katie yelled.
Mrs. Knight came out from the kitchen. "What is it, sweetie?"
"Kendall's being a control freak."
"Oh. Kendall, don't be a control freak."
"But Mom! She's dating James!"
Mrs. Knight turned to us with a smile. "That's great!"
"Mo-om! She's dating James! What part of that are you not getting?"
She turned to him. "I got that. And I'm happy about it. James has always been like a son to me. And they've always had some type of connection."
"No they don't!"
Katie sighed. "I know what this is about."
"What?" Kendall demanded.
"Of what? I'm not gay."
"I didn't mean it like that!"
"Then how did you mean it?"
Katie walked over to him and Kendall sat up. "You're afraid that since James and I are dating, I'm not going to be paying as much attention to you," she said, carefully sitting in his lap. "You'll always be my number one, big brother. But now you have to share."
He pouted. "But I don't wanna share," he whined.
She giggled and rested her head in the hollow of his neck. "But sharing is caring."
"Not since preschool."
"Barney would disagree. That was a very valuable life lesson."
"Yeah...when you're four!"
"And you carry it with you. Don't be stingy."
"You're my baby sister. I can be stingy about you if I want to be."
She sat up and looked at him. "You can't keep me to yourself forever."
"Yes I can."
She laughed. "No you can't."
"Yes I can." He tightened his grip on her.
"Kendall," Katie laughed.
"Nothing is going to change between us."
She grinned and placed her hands on either side of his face. squishing it slightly, something she's done since we were little. "I love you."
"I love you too."
Katie moved her hands and hugged him.
He hugged her back tightly.
"Aww, my babies," Mrs. Knight gushed.
"They're so cute," Val cooed.
Carlos grinned and jumped up, snatching Katie out of Kendall's arms. "She's my Kit-Kat, Kendork!"
"She's my Katie-Bear!" I pulled Katie out of Carlos' arms.
Logan shrugged and joined in, taking Katie from me. "My Kat!"
Val grabbed Katie. "She's my Katie-Kat."
Kendall took her back. "My baby sister."
"And we made a full circle," Logan commented.
Mrs. Knight smiled and took Katie from Kendall. "My daughter."
We all looked each other, and then took a step away from Katie and Mrs. Knight.
Katie grinned. "Chickens."
"We're not fighting your mom for you," Logan informed her. "Your mom's too scary. Plus, she has birthrights on you."
Kendall nodded. "But I'm totally second!"
"Only cuz you're her brother!" Carlos cried.
"Well, I'm third, because I'm her best friend," Val put in.
"Then I'm fourth, because I'm her boyfriend," I added.
Katie rolled her eyes. "There is nothing after number 1!"
"Yes there is!" we all cried.
She shook her head. "No, there's not."
We all pouted at her.
"There's nothing after number 1, because you're all my number 1's. I love you guys all way too much to put you into order."
"Awwww!" we all cooed.
"Group hug!" Carlos cried.
"No," Katie said, running into the kitchen. She returned a couple minutes later with a bunch of snacks and drinks, passing some to Val. "Well, like I said, nothing's really changing, so you guys do whatever it is that you guys do and Val and I will be having our girly stuff in my room."
"Okay, have fun," Kendall told her.
She nodded and she and Val headed to her room.
I looked at the others. "I'm gonna head home," I mumbled. No matter what Katie had said, I couldn't be around Kendall right now, not when he had gotten the chance I had so desperately wanted.
The guys nodded.
"See ya later," Carlos said to me, looking kinda sad.
"See ya." I grabbed my stuff and headed out the front door, into the icy air. I got home a few minutes later and walked inside.
My mom came out from the parlor, wearing an evening gown.
"Hey Mom," I mumbled.
She looked at me. "What's wrong?"
"Nothing," I replied. "Just...nothing. I'm going up to my room."
I gave her a quick kiss on the cheek, before climbing the stairs to my room. I walked inside and closed the door, before throwing my bag on the floor and collapsing on my bed.
I was thrilled about finally getting together with Katie, but I was so upset that it was Kendall that Gustavo Rocque had chosen, and not me. Kendall had been the one that Rocque had liked. He had the fire. I didn't.
But I did have fire. I was just too nervous. And Kendall only gets 'the fire' when his friends and/or family need defending. He didn't have anything I didn't have, but Gustavo Rocque was just too blinded by those stupid bug-eyed glasses.
I sighed and stripped down to my boxers, before crawling under the covers and closing my eyes.
The next morning came way too quickly.
My phone beeped, letting me know I had a text.
I grabbed it and read the text.
Logan and I are hanging out with Kendall at work. You should come.
I bit my lip, but texted back, Sure, what time?
In about an hour, maybe a little sooner.
Ok, meet ya there
I got out of bed and walked into my bathroom. I brushed my teeth, washed my face, and showered quickly, before going through the usual motions with my hair, and getting dressed.
Once I was finished, I grabbed my phone and headed downstairs.
Mom was sitting at the dining room table, eating a single egg and drinking a non-fat latte.
"Morning," I told her.
"Good morning," she said cheerfully.
I sat down with her, having a quick breakfast, before kissing her cheek and heading out. I reached the back of the grocery store that Kendall worked at, the usual place where we met up.
"Hi, James!" Carlos shouted cheerfully.
"Hi," I replied, crossing the parking lot and joining him, Logan and Kendall.
"So I uh, did the math last night on this whole singing thing...and Katie was right, you're an idiot," Logan said to Kendall, pushing a cart that hit a car. "That's breaking a right."
Kendall just shook his head. "Look, I don't want to go to LA, and not with some bozo who treats my friends like that!"
"And because you want to play hockey?"
"But this is just LIKE hockey!" Carlos cried. "Only instead of crashing the boards and rushing the net, you're singing and dancing!"
"What have you got to lose?" Logan asked.
Carlos stepped in front of Kendall. "Dude...CALIFORNIA! The girls, the beach, the stars! The...GIRLS!"
Kendall just shook his head, and turned his head to me. "What about you? You haven't said 2 words to me all day."
"I'm not talking to you," I told him.
"You just did," Logan and Carlos informed me.
"You know what?" I turned to Kendall. "Dude, part of me hates you right now. No, all of me hates you. But call that guy back."
"That guy? That guy said you have no talent!"
"Yeah, I know," I said, pushing a cart angrily.
"James!" Logan cried. "You just pushed that towards Katie and Val!"
"Crap. Sorry!" I called to the girls.
Katie winced as it hit her leg. "You're dead, Diamond!"
Uh oh. I quickly backtracked, away from her.
Her and Val both stalked towards me.
"Come here," she said.
"Oh, I'm not gonna hurt you."
"That's what you always say right before you hurt one of us."
"Get over here!"
"Ohmigosh!" Val cried. "It's Nicole from the Pussy Cat Dolls!"
I turned and the next thing I registered was the pain in my leg from the cart in front of me.
Katie and Val were smirking.
"That was mean!" I cried.
Katie shrugged. "I think it was fair."
"I didn't mean to push the cart into you girls!"
"But you did. And now we're even."
"Whatever." I rolled my eyes.
Katie sighed and walked over, pressing a kiss to my cheek.
I relaxed slightly.
Katie pointed behind Kendall.
We all turned to find a long, black limo streaking up to the store.
"Who do you think is in there?" Carlos asked.
"The governor?" Katie suggested.
The limo stopped in front of us and Gustavo and his assistant stepped out.
"Oh great, the Good-News captain is here," Val proclaimed.
Katie elbowed her, but she was fighting a smile.
Gustavo stalked over to Kendall.
"What are you doing here?" Kendall asked him.
"I am here to offer you a second chance," he told Kendall, puffing out his chest and putting on an important aura.
"So you came all the way over here, just to try to get me to go to LA?"
"Yeah, pretty much."
"Okay," Kendall nodded. "I'll go. Under one condition."
"You take my buds too and make us a singing group."
Logan choked on his soda. "Cola up my nose."
"I'm Gustavo Rocque! I'm amazing! I'M AMAZING! And if you think for one second, that I'm so desperate because I've toured 22 cities and haven't been able to find anybody, you can think again! Because there is no way- NO WAY- GUSTAVO ROCQUE, is taking the four dogs from Minnesota to Los Angeles to make them stars! It's never gonna happen! NEVER!"
"So it's a deal?"
Kendall held out his hand, and he and Gustavo shook on it.
Katie looked up at me with a smile. "I told you something good was going to happen for everyone."
"Yeah! We're going to LA!"
She nodded. "Yup."
After getting packed, getting things sorted and flying on a plane, we were finally in LA.
Kelly met us at the airport, and escorted us to the Palmwoods hotel, a place where kids and teenagers stayed while they tried to break into the entertainment industry.
"This is awesome!" Carlos cried.
"Right?" I nearly screamed.
She led us into the lobby and told us about the pool.
"Wow!" we all chorused together. The guys and I all shared a look and ran towards it.
Kelly followed us out. She smiled. "I take it, you guys like it?"
"Yeah!" we all chorused.
"Alright, well, enjoy. I'm going to go get your mom and sister settled in," she said to Kendall.
She headed back into the lobby.
Kendall turned to us. "Let's make a deal now - whatever happens, we'll always be 4 hockey players from Minnesota. Nothing can change that."
We all nodded in agreement. We met a few people, like, Tyler, Guitar Dude, Camille and Lightening, the TV wonder dog.
"Whoa," Carlos breathed out. "Who are they?"
Three beautiful girls came into view, in slow motion, hair fanning out behind them.
"They're the Jennifers," Tyler told us. "All three of them are obviously named Jennifer and they sing, dance and act."
We all exchanged wide-eyed looks.
"Hi," Carlos said as they walked by us.
They barely stopped to look at us.
"We're in a band," I informed them.
They all froze. "A band? Ohmigosh!"
Carlos grinned. "Do you wanna go see a movie tonight?"
"Are you starring in the movie?"
"Well, no," he answered.
"But we're in band!"
"And we're 3 actresses who don't care. Later." they waved and walked off.
We all just stared after them, dumbfounded.
"What's with you?"
We all jumped.
"I'm in love," Carlos sighed.
Katie furrowed her brow. "Umm...okay..."
"Yeeaahhh...they're not my type," I said to my friends, and stood up so that I was next to Katie.
Katie looked up at me. "What?"
"Oh, we just ran into three girls who want nothing to do with us," I told her.
"Yeah. Don't worry, they're not my type," I told her, kissing her cheek.
"I just came down to tell you we're in apartment 2J. I'll see you guys later," she said, heading back into the lobby.
"She's not upset, right?" I asked Kendall worriedly.
Logan gave me a look. "Oh, she is."
"I should go up and talk to her."
"I wouldn't do that," Kendall told me.
"Should I just wait it out?"
"Yeah, that's probably best."
"Okay," I agreed, sinking back into a chair.
Carlos looked at me. "Kit-Kat will be okay. She's just a little worried."
"Yeah," Logan agreed. "I mean, we're in the world you've been wanting to be in. You know, the one filled with models and such."
"Yeah. I know."
"You didn't catch the hint, did you?"
"Yeah, I caught it. I know this is something we'll have to figure out. And it's not like I'm going to cheat on her or break up with her."
"Better not," Kendall muttered.
"She's just a little insecure," Logan continued. "I mean, she's a teenage girl who just got thrown into Hollywood. She's surrounded by beautiful people."
"I know. But she shouldn't be insecure. She's still the most beautiful girl I've ever seen," I snapped.
"We know. But, like I said, she's a teenage girl. They don't always see themselves clearly."
Kelly came back for us a few hours later.
We looked up at her, waiting to see what she had to say.
"Okay, your mom and sister are completely settled in. Then your sister started complaining she was bored, so your mom let her watch Fox," she told Kendall. "Anyway, it's time to head over to the studio for Gustavo's boot camp training."
We all shrugged and followed her out. We headed to the studio and froze when we walked inside.
Nicole. Nicole Scherzinger. No. Freaking. Way.
"Hi," she said with a smile.
All I managed to get out was a whole bunch of strangled noises.
"He's going to marry you!" Carlos blurted out.
She looked at me. "Where's my ring?"
Cue more strangled noises.
Kendall smiled. "Actually, he'll be marrying my sister."
"I have your permission?" I managed to get out.
"Well, that's a start."
"What are you doing at Rocque Records?" Carlos asked Nicole.
"I have some...unfinished business with Gustavo Rocque."
"You guys are working together?"
"We were. Let's just say we had some...creative differences."
A door opened and Gustavo poked his head out. "Nicole, baby!"
She threw her phone at him as hard as she could, and he quickly closed the door to block the flying object. She grabbed her phone and flashed a smile at us, before leaving.
We exchanged petrified looks.
"Wow," Kendall commented. "That's almost as scary as my sister."
"Yeah, not quite to that extent."
Kendall shrugged as Gustavo stepped out of his office.
He told us a few things and the boot camp training was started.
Two words: Complete. Torture.
After that he sat us down and brought in his team to go over a possible look for us. Some of the looks were...ummm...terrifying...Although some were really cool! Like the Uncle Sam look?
Then there was Danger Boy. I thought we looked pretty good. The others didn't agree though. Something about the pants being dangerously tight.
Katie walked in at that moment. "Wow."
"We look good, right?" I asked her.
"No?" Gustavo asked.
"You're a teen girl!" his team cried. "What do you think?"
She paused. "I think half of them look horrible."
"And the other half?"
"Which half?" Gustavo demanded.
"James and Logan."
Logan's eyebrows skyrocketed. "You think I look hot?"
"Not completely, but you could pull it off."
She rolled her eyes. "You look the best, I don't know why you're pouting."
I tried to walk over to her, but the pants were, well, dangerously tight.
"Yeah, this isn't working," Kendall spoke up. "Can we please change into something that doesn't involve not being able to move?"
"Next!" the woman shouted, and we were shifted into another set of clothes.
"Feeling Boylicious yet?" Katie asked me, shaking with laughter.
Kendall glared at her.
She laughed harder. "You guys look ridiculous!"
I shrugged. "I think we look hot!"
She grinned. "I like your shirt."
Kendall rolled his eyes. "You know, I think you like his shirt a little too much."
"At least he has a shirt."
Kendall winced. "Yeah. How come I didn't get a shirt?" he whined.
The team shrugged. "We thought you'd look best in the overalls."
"And how come James' shirt is open?" Kendall demanded.
They shrugged again. "He's hot and has a hot bod to go with it."
I smirked. "That's how come."
"These options suck!" Gustavo roared.
Gustavo, Kelly and the team all turned to look at Katie.
"What?" she asked warily.
We all looked at her too.
"What?" she repeated, taking a step back.
"You're a teenage girl," the woman said, eyeing Katie.
"So, what outfits would make this band appealing to you?"
She sighed. "Is there like a clothing room or something?"
"Yeah, there's a wardrobe room."
"Okay. Take me to it."
They grinned and led her to the room.
"Should we be scared?" Carlos asked. "I mean, Kit-Kat could do something completely humiliating."
"I'm sure she'll come up with some good," I said, even though I didn't sound very confident about that even to myself.
They came back a few minutes later and Katie walked over to us, shoving clothes into our chests.
We quickly changed into them.
"Wow..." I breathed out. "These are perfect."
Carlos nodded. "I just may let your girlfriend dress me every day."
I eyed him. "I just know you didn't mean it the way it came out."
"Hey, better than having her Undress me..."
I rolled my eyes. "Naturally."
"I could have her do that," Carlos smirked.
I glared at him. "I am really tempted to slam your face into the wall right now."
"Aww," Katie said, walking over and wrapping her arms around me.
I hugged her back, nuzzling her hair with my nose.
"Can I join in?" Carlos asked.
"You want a threesome?" Logan asked him.
Katie's jaw dropped. "Hortense!"
"Well, he asked if he could join in."
"I meant the hug!" Carlos cried.
"Why would you want to join in?" Logan demanded. "They're a couple - that was a couple-hug!"
He shrugged. "I wanted a hug."
I held out my arm to him. "Come on."
He brightened up and stepped over, wrapping his arms around Katie.
"I meant both of us!" I howled.
He quickly wrapped an arm around me.
I wrapped an arm back around him, still steaming a little over the fact that he tried to hug my girlfriend, and not me.
Logan shrugged and walked over, wrapping his arms around Katie.
"Dude!" I cried.
"Touchy, touchy," he muttered, walking over to my side and hugging me.
"You would be too," I mumbled.
"Come on, Kenny," Katie said, reaching her arms out.
He eyed her. "I don't know. I might get in trouble," he teased.
"You're her brother, I don't have a problem with you hugging her," I snapped.
He grinned cheekily and walked over.
He wrapped his arms around Katie, pulling her away from the rest of us, so that we were all entangled in an awkward hug.
Katie laughed and pushed away from him.
"Wait," Carlos spoke up. "Does that mean since you guys are dating, we can't hug Kit-Kat anymore?"
"You can hug her, but you were both being smartasses about it."
"I wasn't," Logan said. "I was just hugging her."
"Awww, isn't this sweet?" Gustavo cooed. "Dogs! Dance practice! Now!"
Katie laughed again. "Oh, I'm totally staying for that!"
"You have no faith in us," Kendall told her.
"No, I just know a trainwreck when I hear one."
"She has no faith in us," I whined to Kendall.
"I do too," Katie argued. "But you guys are totally going to screw this up."
We walked into the dance studio, where Gustavo introduced us to a man named Mr. X.
And Katie was right...We totally screwed it up. We screwed up so much, we got fired.
We ended up back at the Palm Woods pool, downtrodden.
"He's a really good piano player," Logan said, breaking the silence.
"And I'm really sad," Carlos added.
I sighed. "I can't believe we got fired!"
Katie joined us a few minutes later. She hadn't stuck around, so she didn't know. "So, are you guys famous yet?"
Kendall looked at her. "We had some...creative differences."
Katie crossed her arms. "You got fired, didn't you?"
"No! Yes...He was mean!"
Carlos nodded in agreement.
"All he did was yell and stuff," Kendall continued.
"Yeah...he wanted to turn us into rich and famous popstars...what an idiot!" I snapped at Kendall.
"He wanted to turn us into dancing dogs!"
"Rich and famous dancing dogs!" I yelled, hopping up and down for emphasis.
"He's got a point," Logan said to Kendall.
"Oh, so you're siding with James now?"
"No. Maybe. Kinda. Yes?"
"You always side with him!"
"I do not!"
"You guys blew it," I butted in. "You blew my chance. You could've tried harder, but you blew it!"
"Alright!" Carlos cried, jumping up. "Let's all calm down and think nice, happy thoughts about kittens!"
"Why don't you think about kittens?" I yelled. "With your bad singing and that stupid helmet!" I pushed him into his chair.
Katie looked at me, a little bit of shock evident on her face.
Logan tried to intervene was it wasn't working.
A few seconds later, Carlos jumped up and we were fighting.
"Great!" Kendall cried, walking over. "Now we're all fighting, I didn't even wanna do this!" He tried to break it up, but was failing.
The next thing I knew, we were all in the pool.
"Katie!" Kendall cried. "What did you do that for?"
She smiled. "You guys needed to cool off."
We all paused, thinking about that for a moment.
"She's right," Logan said.
I apologized and the guys dunked me.
Later that evening, we all sat around a bonfire by the pool.
"I could stay here and be a model," I said thoughtfully. "I'm still great looking. Or be on a reality show."
"Which one? Project Idiot?" Carlos said.
"That's just your jealousy talking." I shot back as Katie reached around and slapped him. I chuckled, and wrapped my arm around Katie's waist, and she rested her head on my shoulder.
"You guys need to go back to Rocque Records tomorrow and show him you're serious."
I nodded in agreement. "Yeah, we do."
"We should do this. Katie's right," Kendall said, standing up. "I really think we should do this."
"How?" Logan asked. "We got fired, remember?"
"We didn't get fired. Okay, we got fired, but the problem is, is that we didn't try our best."
"I tried my best," I said.
"We know, James. We know."
I nodded in satisfaction.
"We are hockey heads, brothers of the ice and we do not quit," Kendall said, smacking his hand. "Now, are we gonna dump the puck and scramble back to the bench? Or are we gonna grab that puck, pull the goalie and rush the net big time?"
"Rush the net!" we all yelled, slapping our hands into the middle, creating a pile.
"So," Katie butted in. "Just to be clear...Dump the puck or big time rush?"
"Big Time Rush!"
"Cool," she smiled. "I'm gonna go grab a smoothie."
"Cool. Can you get me one too?" Kendall asked her.
"Hmm...Depends...What do I get out of it?"
"The knowledge that you did something nice for your big brother?"
"Ooh..us too!" Carlos said, pointing to the rest of us.
She gave him a look. "I'm a 15 year old girl, not an octopus."
"You won't get me one?" I pouted.
"Dammit, Kendall! You see what you started?"
He shrugged. "Sorry."
"I'll come with you," I told her.
"Thank you. Nice to know someone has the decency to help!"
The rest of the guys looked down, guiltily.
She nodded and headed off to get the smoothies.
I followed after her.
We got the smoothies and headed back over.
"So what are you guys going to do for a band name if Gustavo takes you back?" she asked, sipping her smoothie.
Kendall and I looked at each other, and then at Logan and Carlos. Right on cue, we all yelled, "Big Time Rush!"
She did a spit-take and it landed on Kendall. "Seriously?"
He wiped the smoothie off of his face, looking disgusted. "Yes, seriously."
She grinned sheepishly. "Sorry."
"Anyway," I said. "Yeah, doesn't Big Time Rush fit perfectly?"
She nodded and smiled. "Yeah, I guess it does."
We all grinned.
The next day, we walked into Rocque Records. We made a deal with Gustavo and worked our butts off.
Eventually we performed for Griffin, the CEO, and got good news.
We were staying for at least another three months!
Science-Fantasy93: Sooooo...how'd you guys enjoy it? We stuck to the episode as best as we could, although we had to change a couple of things.
Jatieluv: And we're sorry if some parts seemed rushed. We didn't want it to be a gazillion pages long...We could just go on and on...
Science-Fantasy93: And the chapter is still pretty long...Anyway, let us know what you think about the first one shot!
Jatieluv: We love hearing what you guys think! :)
