p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;"Toddy woke up with her head pounding. She thought back to the night before. All she could remember was the sound of everyone shouting "chug" and the sound of fizz. Suddenly the room brightened, and she covered her head./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Come on now," Maura said, ripping the blankets off of Toddy, "You've slept long enough, and we've got to meet the Beatles today!" Toddy curled up into a ball and groaned./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Those guys can wait! Sleep can't!" she whined. Maura sighed and grabbed one of Toddy's legs. She pulled her off of the bed in one swift motion. Toddy landed with a thump. She walked out of the room to let Toddy get ready for the day. Toddy got up and made a face, then groaned. As she walked, she pulled her mop of hair out of her face. Toddy opened the cabinet for a towel, and sighed. She started walking out to the main room./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""WHERE ARE ALL MY TOWE-" Toddy paused when she saw the towel fort. She groaned, and took one off the top. It was empty. She groaned and took as many as she could back into her room. She closed the door, and took a quick shower. Once she was out, she was got dressed. She wasn't ever really a dressy person, but liked to impress people, so she got out a knee length, floral dress. It was sleeveless and slightly tight. She put it on, and let her hair dry on its own. She walked out of the room and noticed everyone leaving./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Toddy," Eddie said, holding out a hand. Toddy completely disregarded his hand and jumped up to hug him. He was quite a bit taller than her. Scotty came over, and scoffed./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""What? I don't get any hugs?" he asked. "FINE!" Toddy chuckled, and gave him a hug./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""I wish you didn't have to go!" Toddy exclaimed./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Well, the garage won't run itself!" Eddie said, chuckling, "and besides, you guys are gonna be really busy on tour! YOu won't have any time for us." Toddy nodded./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""But we have a lot to catch up on," Scotty said, putting a hand on her head. She scowled at him, and sighed./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;""Alright fine! But I'll see you guys after the tour, right?" she asked. They all agreed and parted ways. After all their friends left, the girls continued to finish getting ready./p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Have you guys seen my boots?!" Toddy called through the suite. There was no reply. She then and there decided on tennis shoes. The girls walked out of their rooms, and everyone saw what the other was wearing. They all sighed, and started commenting or giving tips, except Toddy. She didn't know anything about fashion./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""What's with the shoes?" Maura asked. Toddy sighed./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""I couldn't find my boots," she mumbled. Maura nodded, and stood next to her as Bree stepped out of the bathroom./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Hi guys, Toddy, right?" she asked. Toddy nodded./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Toddy, why don't you tell Bree about that song you wrote?" Maura suggested. Toddy just scoffed and walked to the table. She pulled out a pack of cigarettes and lit one./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Could I get one?" Rose asked. Toddy jumped. She handed the box to her. "Thanks." Rose smiled and put the cigarette to her lips./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""What do you think about that Bree character?" she asked Toddy./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""I don't really trust her. What if we let her help and she takes all the credit for herself?" Toddy asked, "We emalready/em don't have the press's trust! The last thing we need is the reputation of being a bunch of hacks."/span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""I feel like if we take the risk to trust her, we'll fail drastically." She took a drag from her cigarette. Toddy sighed and watched as Maura and Bree talked in the corner. Delrose was about to walk over when Michael walked in./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Alright ladies, are you ready to meet your fellow tour mates?" he asked. They all groaned in unison except Bree, who squealed. "I'll take that as a kinda!" He said optimistically. They groaned again and walked over to the door. The group went out to the staircase and down to the lobby. /span"There's a car waiting for you," Michael said, walking them to the door. "All of you," he reiterated when Bree just stood there. She had to go with them. They all got in the car, and went down the road./p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""I still can't believe you're wearing tennis shoes," Maura said, shaking her head at her bandmate./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Really?! Why are you wearing those?!" Delrose asked./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""'Cause," Toddy started, "I couldn't find my boots, I just wish you guys would get over it! We're just going to be sitting at a table!"/span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""So?! What if someone sees you?" Maura asked./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""They don't even match your dress!" Bree jumped in. Toddy glared./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""I don't give a damn!" Toddy said definitively./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Well, fine then!" Maura grumbled./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""I wonder what the Beatles are like!" Bree said thoughtfully./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Probably jerks," Toddy mumbled, pulling out her deck of cards. She shuffled them nervously./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""No, I think they'll be charming!" Bree replied, her eyes taking on a faraway look, obviously starstruck as she daydreamed. Toddy rolled her eyes and went back to her sad, worn out cards. The rest of the ride was silent, but the closer they got to their destination the louder the screams got. They looked out their windows and saw all the fans the boys had gathered./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""WOAH! We never got this much applause!" Rose stated, her face pressed up against the glass of the window like a kid at a candy shop. "These guys must be huge!" The girls were taken to the front of the hotel and walked inside by buff men./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;"'They must be bodyguards so they don't tear us limb from limb!' Toddy thought. She chuckled. As they went up the stairs they found Michael already waiting./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""How'd you get here?" Delrose asked./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Doesn't matter," he told her matter-of-factly "All that matters now is that the boys are waiting for you!" He practically pushed them down the hall. "Here's the room, I'll be in the next one over with Brian!" He smiled. "Go on!" He opened the door for them. The four boys froze where they were. The five girls stared at the four boys until finally one of them smirked and walked over./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""You lot look familiar," he said, then introduced himself, "I'm John." He held out his hand to Delrose. She shook it, and took it upon herself to introduce them all./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Toddy is in the tennis shoes, Maura's the perfect one, Bree is the excited one, and Rose is the other one. You can call me Delrose," she said, not taking her eyes off of John's. John smirked and nodded. He let the girls in. Toddy wandered over to the nearest ashtray and pulled out a cigarette. She heard someone, who introduced himself as Paul, talking about how familiar they all looked to him./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Did you all happen to be at one of our concerts?" he asked, trying to think of where he saw them./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Nope," Delrose answered. Those were all the answers she gave./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Ever been to jail?" Maura asked./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""No..." he said, then muttered, "Well, at least not recently." /span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Good, neither have I." She smiled smugly. Paul sighed./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Oh well! I guess it doesn't really matter!" He sat down. Toddy chuckled at them. She sighed and leaned against the wall. Her cigarette was hanging out of her mouth as she fiddled with her cards once more./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Hey, how good are you with those?" one of the boys asked. He had a slightly large nose and intense blue eyes./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Pretty darn good," Toddy said, "What about you?" /span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Not too good, I'm afraid," he replied, then told her, "I'm Ringo." She felt she had heard his voice before./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Toddy," she said in reply. He shook her hand./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""So, Toddy," he started, "You thirsty, hungry, anything? They've sent up so much food we'd never eat it all in our /spanlives, so you and your friends are welcome to whatever you want." He smiled. Toddy thanked him./p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Thanks, but I'm kinda hungover, and not in the least bit hungry," she told him./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Hungover?" he asked, chuckling./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Yes," she said, aggravated, "Too much sugar." She walked away./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Hey, I'm sorry," he said, following her, "I didn't mean to offend you."/span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;""I'm just not a people person, I guess," she sighed. He grinned./p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Oh, that's alright, I won't hate ya for it!" He said./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Thanks, I was worried," she retorted sarcastically. Toddy looked around to see where everyone was. Bree was over in the corner freaking out, Maura was nervously tapping her foot to an imaginary beat, Delrose was doing what looked like having a staring contest with John, and Rose was eating an apple. She looked to see what the boys were doing as well. Ringo was looking around like Toddy was, Paul was frowning at John and Delrose's game, and the other one looked as though he was nodding off in the corner./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""OK!" Toddy clapped her hands together loudly. Everyone jumped at the sudden sound. "I say we all get out of this hotel and have some fun! What do you say?" She asked./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""I'm game!" Maura said. Everyone else agreed, and grabbed their coats./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""We'll have to climb out a window or something," Paul said, walking to a window that led to a back alley. He looked around and saw a fire escape. They all walked over. "Ladies first," he said, helping them out./span/p
p style="max-height: 999999px; font-family: Verdana, Verdana, Arial; font-size: 11px;"span style="max-height: 999999px;""Always the ladies man!" John mumbled under his breath. They all laughed as they headed out to actually do something./span/p
