Part 34 continued:
Claire had found Alana in the bathroom standing over a sink trying to dry her eyes. Strangely she was wearing waterproof mascara. “Alana?” Claire walked over hoping she wouldn’t be to mad that she followed her here. “I’m embarrassed” she said looking back into the mirror and wiping the bottom of her eye. “You have so much confidence telling him that- you have kept that bottled up wayyy to long.” “Tonight in front of all of you was probably not the best place or time.” “Of course it was the right time, he asked, and you told him how you felt.” “You know, I’m glad this happened, finally Criss is gonna see someone who’s real and actually cares about him.” “ Why do you think I love working for him?” She then slightly giggled. Claire smiled. Arianna then walked in with Zoe. “Is she okay?” Zoe asked as they both walked over. “ She’ll be fine.” Claire said. “I’m sure you feel much better now.” Arianna said. “Is anyone else stunned that Brooke would do this?” Zoe now asked. “ I knew she wasn’t the real deal, but this was pushing it.” Arianna said.“ You’d have to be such an idiot to buy a story like that though” Claire said.
Travis, JD, Costa and Criss were now sitting on the rocks. “ I had no idea..” Criss said also stunned. “You had no idea?” JD asked. “No, I thought we were great friends with a good working relationship.” “ Criss, we’ve seen you out more with Alana than Brooke.” Jd said. “If she didn’t like Brooke, why didn’t she just tell me?” “ She probably thought things would change.” Travis said. “The best thing she could do was be your friend.” “ And look how you got defensive when I said Brooke was phony.” JD added. The other four girls moved away from Criss after Alana exploded; Giving some space to Criss. They also didn’t know who needed more comforting. Criss then got up to talk to them. “I’m sorry about that girls.” “No, its okay Criss, these things happen.” Rhiannon said. “ I think we feel bad, because this is obviously personal business.” “No, its okay that you are here.” He looked around. “I’m just glad this didn’t happen in front of the paparazzi or something, lets get going.” “Hey Travis, can you call Derek and have him come get us?” “Yeah, sure.” He took out his phone.
Alana had calmed down a bit and just wanted to leave. “ Let’s go find everyone and see if everyone just wants to leave.” Zoe suggested. “ Thanks.” Alana said while taking out her sunglasses and putting them on. As they walked outside, they looked around and then saw the car waiting for them. The windows were tinted, so you couldn’t see anyone. Claire was very curious to how this was making Criss feel. JD came up to them. “ Hey, I’m sorry Alana.” “ It’s fine, lets just go.” She said in a serious tone. They were helped into the car and Alana sat in the back.
