Are you Claire? Zoe was the first to ask. Yes, are you Zoe? Kate then came to the door. Hi, Im Kate. Hi Kate. Arianna said. You must be Arianna? Claire asked. here I am! She put her hands up. You guys can come in. Claire told them opening the door wider. We were just saying how we love the pictures on your door. Zoe said as they stepped in. Oh ya, I thought it would be cute. It is. Arianna followed. So how was your flight? Claire asked. It was good, we were actually on the same flight! Same with us. Claire commented. So its weird to see everyone in person. Zoe spoke again. Ya, one second were internet buddies, and now here we are. Kate said. So I wonder where the other three are? Arianna asked. So who else is coming? Remind me. Zoe asked. It was like Claire had everything memorized. The four of us, Xesca, Rhiannon and LeAnn. Oh, LeAnn is a hoot. Arianna stated. Ya, I know, I cant wait to meet her. Claire replied back. Claire saw that all of them were just standing around. oh, you guys can sit. Claire sat on her bed and moved over. Zoe sat next to her. So do you guys want a tour of the hotel? Kate asked. Oh, no, well get one later when everyone else gets here. Arianna said sitting on Kates bed. Well its great to meet you girls, but I think Im gonna go unpack before dinner. Zoe now said. Oh thats fine. Claire said. Ill stay with you guys. Arianna said not moving.
~ an hour later:
Arianna, Kate and Claire were hanging out in the room getting acquainted when the phone rang. Im getting hungry. Arianna said moving her lips. Ya, me to. Kate agreed. Hello? Claire answered the phone. Hello Claire, its Alana. She laughed. Hello again. I just wanted to let you know that the next three loyals have arrived. Ok, great. Claire replied. Ya, Ill send them up and then we can all go to dinner. Oh, sounds good. Claire said. Claire? Alana said before hanging up. Yes? Dont tell the others, but Criss will be joining us to meet you all. Oh, ok, thank you. She hung up. She was not going to betray Alanas trust. So? Kate and Arianna wondered. Good news. The others are here, we wont have to wait long, and then well be off to dinner. Awesome. Arianna said.
~Downstairs outside the hotel:
LeAnn, Rhiannon, and Xesca got out of the car, Thanks so much Derek! Rhiannon said, and the others followed. Hi, nice to meet all of you. Alana stood greeting them. Alana as in Crisss assistant?! LeAnn asked stunned.
~ Claire & Kates room:
Alright, I think im mostly done with unpacking. Zoe said coming back into the room. Feel better? Claire asked. Yes. Good, well I just got off the phone with Alana and she said the others are here and well be going to dinner. I wonder when well finally get to meet Criss? Kate asked. Claire pretended not to know either.
Rhiannon, LeAnn, and Xesca all rode up the elevator together anticipating. I hope our rooms are nice. LeAnn said to break the silence. Im sure they are. Rhiannon said. It was awkward that three loyals were in an elevator, and had nothing to say to each other. Xesca was very tired. She only got a little bit of sleep the night before and she started to yawn. Maybe Criss can do hypnosis on me, it will work wonders, and then Ill sleep eight straight hours. Im sure it will. Rhiannon usually was in a good mood, and always seem to look at everything on the positive side. Well if you wake up tonight, dont come into my room. Leann warned her sarcastically. Psht, Ill come in and jump on your bed. They all laughed and the elevator stopped and the doors opened. They all stepped out slowly. The hallway was quiet until Rhiannon said okay, were in room 42. They looked down the hall. Oh, this way. Leann led the group. When they got to the door, Xesca was awake enough to notice Kate and Claires door. hey, look at this door. They walked over. Oh, this must be Claire, and heres Kate. Xesca said. Aw, this is cute. Rhiannon commented. Alright, can I get the key? Im most likely gonna take a nap. Okay Lee, lets put our stuff down, and then will come and say hi.
Everyone just loves us. Claire told the group as the next knock came. She opened it. Hi. Hi. Rhiannon, and Leann said excitedly. Youre Claire? Yup. Claire said with a smile. Lemme guess, your Leann? uh huh. Well hi. Claire said again, and decided to give them each hugs. Come in, come in. Claire stepped away. Soon, theres gonna be a party in here. Leann, Rhiannon, meet Arianna and Zoe. Claire introduced them. Hi, nice to meet you guys. Rhiannon said. Xesca would be here, but she was so tired, she took a nap Aww, poor girl. Claire said knowing how she had sleeping issues. So what time did you all get here? Rhiannon asked. Well Claire and Kate have been here the longest. Arianna said. Have you seen Criss yet? Leann asked. haha, no. Can you believe this whole floor is just for us and him? Claire told everyone. And him? Leann asked. Ya, his room is down the hall. Claire said walking over to the door to open it. Alana didnt tell you? I still cant believe we met her! Leann said. Claire opened the door, and the loyals peeked their heads out. I had this fun idea to slip notes under his door and see what he does. And? Zoe found this funny. And we didnt do it. Claire said flat out. I wasnt interested in getting into trouble. They all started getting comfortable as Claire sat on her bed with Zoe, Rhiannon sat in a chair on Kates side as Kate sat on her bed with Arianna. Speaking of trouble, have any of you seen that new article on Criss? Arianna asked. Oh no, your not talking about.. Claire said looking at her. What are you guys talking about? Zoe asked. Ill be right back. Arianna said. Everyone looked at Claire. I was telling Kate about this earlier. Arianna came back to the room, and dropped the magazine on the bed. Rhiannon, Leann, Kate and Zoe all looked at it. Arianna sat with Claire and waited. Rhiannon picked it up. 7 Days with 7 Loyals? questioning the title. She started flipping through the pages. Shall I start? she said, brave enough to read this crap.
Saving them all, the phone rang. Is that Alana? Kate asked. I think so. Claire said. Are you all ready for dinner? Eliza asked on the other line. Are we all ready to eat? Claire covered the phone and asked the girls. They nodded. Oh, Xesca. Rhiannon said quietly. Alana, we are, but as you could tell, Xesca was really tired, so she went to go take a nap. Oh I see, how long has she been asleep? About 10 minutes? she told her. Do you want us to wake her up? Claire asked. Ya, I really dont want to, but I dont want her waking up and then not knowing where everyone is. Ya, true. Claire agreed. Alana then explained to Claire where everyone should meet. Ok, good, see you soon. Tell Xesca Im sorry. I will. Claire hung up. Okay, Alana wants us to wake up Xesca. Claire told them. Ill go do it. Zoe volunteered.
~Downstairs in the dinner area:
Do I look okay? Criss asked Alana fussing with his clothes. You look great. Alana then tilted his fedora so a shadow cast over his eyes. There you go. She looked at him admiringly. Think there gonna freak? Oh ya. Alana smiled. Except one. Except one? Criss asked. I, I told one of the loyals. Thanks Alana, youve just ruined it. Criss turned to disappointment. She tapped him on the arm. No, for some reason I trust her. Now, go hide. She told him.
