Leann, and Kate were nice enough to go down the stairs with Claire. She really wasn’t in the mood to feel a drop in her stomach before eating. When they got to the lobby area, she started walking “ Ok, I think its this way.” “ Lets wait for the others.” Kate reminded her. “ Right.” The group of them worked together to find where it was. Criss had reserved a special area of the hotel’s restaurant. They were led in by a maitre d’ to the back area. They were all looked apon by the others who were also wondering where they were going. Kate, Claire and Leann just smiled at each other and kept walking. Claire looked back at Xesca.” You doing okay?” Claire asked her. “ Ya, just give me some food, and put me back to sleep.” They then entered the room. Claire thought it looked very similar to the room in season 5 where Criss did the light bulb illusion for a couple of girls. The room just had a long table with plates and silverware all set up, and to add a touch, two candles were lit. “ Hello loyals.” Alana greeted them as the stood together. The maitre d’ smiled at Alana and left. The room was dim, but enough to see each other. “ Please sit.” The look on everyone’s faces said they were impressed. “ I want to start by thanking all of you for being so loyal to Criss. It really does mean a lot to him. He loves you all. He and I are so glad that all of you could make it. You all are going to have an opportunity that most celebs wouldn’t consider, but this is why Criss is amazing.” “ I have one thing to ask you.” “ Are you all ready for a surprise?” Claire knew this was it. She looked around the table at the other girls anticipating faces. “ Criss?” Alana called out. The dark red curtain that was closed behind Alana started to open, and there was Criss. Everyone started to clap. “ How are we all?” He asked, with a smile. “ Thank you.” He nodded his head listening to the last of the clapping. Claire couldn’t believe it. There he was! And he looked amazing: A black fedora, a dark regalia purple button down shirt which he never wore before, and black pants. “ Lets see, a lot of you I think I’ve met before.” As he looked at all of them. “Have any of you not met me before?” Leann, not typically a shy girl raised her hand slowly. Everyone looked at her and laughed. She looked so embarrassed. “ Well, I guess you’ll be the first one I give a hug to.” Leann looked at Alana with a : what do I do now look, but Alana reassured her with her eyes. Criss went over and held his arms out. Leann was hesitant, but of course hugged him back. When he looked at her, he asked. “ And you are?” She was surprised she didn’t faint. “ I’m Leann, from Kentucky.” “ Very nice to meet you Leann.” When Criss turned to Arianna on his right, Leann started to fan herself. “ You I recognized.” She smiled. “ Remind me of your name again?” “ Arianna.” She said. “ And how many times have you seen my show?” “ Eight.” “ that’s why.” He continued to Xesca who was sitting next to Arianna. “ And you are?” I’m Xesca.” “ Xesca?” she nodded. “ Wow, that is a very interesting name.” “ Thank you.” He gave her a hug. Criss then went to the other side of the table. “ Hi Criss, I’m Kate.” “ Well hi Kate, you seem very excited to see me.” “ I am.” He gave her his hug. Claire was so nervous. Criss pointed this out when she took a deep breath before saying anything. “ Are you a bit nervous?” Criss was able to read people’s emotions so quickly. “ A little bit.” As she looked at him, she remembered how amazing his eyes looked with eyeliner as they made his eyes stand out more. “ You look familiar to.” He smiled. “ How many times have you seen my show?” “ A couple.” Lightly stating. He knew she was lying. “ How many?” he asked again. “ Five.” “ Thought so.” He then hugged her, and she hugged him back tightly which he responded to. Like Kate, Rhiannon introduced herself politely. “ Hi Criss, I’m Rhiannon.” “ Nice to meet you.” “ Nice to meet you.” He gave her a hug. “ Is it okay if I give you a hug and then sit?” He asked Zoe. “ Oh no, please do.” She said. Criss sat down at one end of the table, and so did Alana.
Instead of a waiter taking everyone’s orders, Criss decided to pick out a meal that he loved whenever he came to Cabo. As tired as Xesca was, she wanted to make sure she wouldn’t get sick or anything from what he was feeding them, but, she trusted him. “ So, what is this?” She asked as the server put a plate in front of all the girls. “ Its called Chicken Chimichangas,.- none of you are vegetarian right?” All of them nodded. All the girls were hesitant, but Kate decided to go for it. She cut a piece and then started eating. She looked at all of them while chewing and gave them thumbs up. After Criss swallowed his first bite, he looked up at everyone and realized a part of him was glad Brooke wasn’t here. “ So how is everyone liking it?” “ Its really good Criss.” Arianna told him. “ So I now want to go around the table and – he stopped to look at Claire who was the only one who wasn’t exactly eating, but picking at her food. “ Your food okay?” Criss and everyone looked at her wondering. She looked up embarrassed to quickly explain what she was doing. “ Oh, im sorry, I just don’t like it when I’m given food when I don’t know whats in it.” “ Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t tell you guys whats in it.” Like an actor who forgot to say his line, Criss realized he was a bit nervous and here was his first mistake. “ Its just chicken, rice, beans with an olive mixture, and everything else is on the side.” Claire felt like a complete idiot, and not just that, but the fact that she didn’t change her clothes before coming. She looked around. “Oh, okay.” She picked up her fork and it was quiet. “ I’m sorry, continue what you were saying.” “ No, its okay, part of it was my fault. I’m glad you asked .It shows a cautious trait which can be good sometimes.” It was moments like this when Criss made her feel better. “ So I was going to go around the table and ask all of you where your from, and if you had a question for me.” Crap, a question? Claire thought as she was finally enjoying what she was eating. What the hell I’m I gonna ask him? Please don’t pick me first. “Leann, that was your name right?” Claire relaxed. She nodded. “ And your from., Ken..” “ Kentucky.” “ Do you have a question for me?” “ Uh, ya, kinda.” “ Um, could I take a tour of your closet?” Everyone laughed. Criss coughed and then laughed. “ Why, what’s in my closet?” “ Umm, just trying to find something.” What was funnier was that Claire was the only one who knew what Leann was looking for. “ Okay, who wants to go next?” Claire was still in shock that she was sitting at the table with Criss and all her loyal friends getting to personally ask Criss questions. It was finally Claire’s turn. She was nervous, but wanted to redeem herself.
By the time everyone went around and asked Criss there questions, they had all finished eating. I’m gonna have to make this at home to refresh the memories. Claire thought. Criss had his phone on him and was wondering if he should tweet a photo of all them for others to see how it was going, and to start putting that magazine article to shame. “ hey Eliza?” Criss said as he reached into his pocket. “Could you take a photo of us?” He motioned for her to take his phone. Claire was excited. She was going to be in one of Criss’s tweet photos! “ Twitter time.” Rhiannon and Zoe said together. Alana stood to take a picture. “ Alright everyone, gather around.” Criss motioned for them to come to his chair. Claire first thought she would have to stand in the back, but seeing as she wasn’t that tall, Kate said “ No, no, come here.” Criss looked up at Claire and she smiled back when she kneeled down next to him as he put his arm around her and Arianna who was on the other side. “ Smile” A phrase that Eliza was so used to. Claire made sure to give the best smile she had since she the day she met him. “Thank you” Claire said as they then went back to there seats. “ Your welcome.” Criss said looking at her. Honest and polite. Criss thought. On twitter it read : 7 of the best people in my life attached with a link. Criss’s mom at home clicked on the picture. “ awww” she said outloud. She then texted him: Love the photo honey. Criss then clapped his hands and then asked “ alright, who’s ready for dessert?” “ Let me guess, chocolate chip cookies?” Zoe asked. “ No, haha.” He loved how they knew him so well. “ No, this is something special. It’s called Apple Enchiladas.” Claire looked over at Xesca, who was starting to fade. She wanted everyone to be having a good time, but she had to save Xesca. “ Xesca, do you want to go back to your room?” Everyone looked over at her as she rubbed her eyes. “ I hate to kill the party, but I don’t think I can stay.” “ That’s okay.” Leann touched her on the arm. “ Want someone to go with you?” In the state that she was in, Criss wasn’t about to let her go alone. He stood up and came over to her. “I’ll go.” He put his arm out for her to take and link hers with his. “ I’ll be back in a bit. Enjoy dessert.” Before they left the room, everyone could hear Criss say “ A little hypnotism, and you’ll be out like that.” Everyone giggled.
As everyone was enjoying dessert, and interviewing Alana, Criss came back. “ Sorry about that.” “ That’s okay.” Claire said. “She okay?” “Oh ya, asleep.” Claire now felt better. Maybe they shouldn’t have woken her before.
