Bron flicked on the radio and settled
on the couch in the suite. Jake paced the suite bored
out of his mind baby-sitting Bron.
“Will you go find something to do?”
“I can’t,” Jake answered her.
Bron looked at him from the couch,
“Yes you can, where the hell am I going to go?”
“All right,” he said, as he walked
out of the suite.
Bron sat and waited and waited.
Then she become conscious she was waiting just to
hear his voice and she groaned. “That is really sick
Bron,” she said aloud.
Bron got up and started to pick through
her duffel bag. She found her floppy which had the
last chapter of Night Train on it. It was the Get
Even chapter they had wrote in Toronto. She thought
about it and strolled to the kitchen and tossed it
in the garbage.
The interview began on the radio
and she listen to them answer the same old boring
questions. How has success changed your life? What
is your favorite color? What do you miss the most
on the road?
Geez can’t they ever ask a different
question or at least an intelligent one, she thought.
The station went to commercial and then the DJ came
“So boys, Let’s ask the question
the women in the audience want the answer to. Who
is dating and who isn’t? Nick first,” he asked.
“Well I am seeing someone right now,
she’s wonderful,” Nick gushed over the airwaves.
Bron imagined Amy sitting somewhere
and practically passing out on that one. “You go
girl,” she said with a grin.
“Brian what about you?” the DJ spoke.
“Yep, I have been for awhile now,”
“Howie, anyone special?” came out
of the radio.
“I just started dating someone,”
Nick interjected, “She’s real sweet
“A.J. any woman in your life right
now?” the DJ asked.
“Yes, I’m seeing a physician. She’s
a very intelligent lady.” He answered with pride.
The fellas laughed good-naturedly
at him. She heard Kevin say, “Bone!”
Bron chuckled, “Proud of yourself
A.J., you should be Mare’s a fine catch.”
“What about you Kevin?” the change
Bron thought out loud, “Yeah what
about you Kevin, considering your little speech this
morning and all.”
There was a slight pause and Brian’s
voice came through the radio. “Kev’s been busy lately.
He got a new present and he is fascinated with it.”
Bron heard the guys giggle, including
Kevin, but she was getting pissed. “Bri you better
shut up right now or I’ll kill you,” she yelled at
Brian continued to dig his grave
even deeper over the airwaves. “Yeah, it was pretty
temperamental when he first got it. But Kev’s been
playing with and it seems to work better now.” The
studio was overflowing with laugher at his last remark.
“So Kevin do you want to tell us
about your new present?” the DJ asked. Bron could
tell the DJ was clueless, thank God, she thought.
“Nope,” Kevin answered him.
Brian just kept pouring it on. “Oh
don’t mind him he’s just sulking. Nick yelled at
him this morning for not sharing it with the rest
of us. Kevin keeps it locked up in his room,” Brian
laughed. A.J. was roaring and so was Howie.
Bron went nuts staring at the radio.
“Oh Brian you are going to be freaking sorry!” Bron
“So Kevin are you seeing any one
right now?” The DJ asked again.
“No, not at the moment,” Kevin replied
That was it, Bron couldn’t take that
on top of what Brian had said. Thoughts were flying
through her head, you liar you. You lied to me and
you hurt me.
Bron ran down the hall to Brian’s
room. I’ll fix you, she thought. Bron walked into
the room and looked around. Oh so that’s where you
hid it, as she spied her laptop on the desk. You
knew I wouldn’t come down here. Bron grabbed her
laptop and went back to their suite.
Quickly she plugged it in and booted.
Bron ran to the kitchen and grabbed her disk from
the garbage can. Running back over to the laptop
she jammed the disk in the machine.
I’ll fix both of you the best way
I know how and then I am out of here. Ok let’s see
as she began clicking the keys.
Find All- A.J..
Replace All- Brian.
Find All- Bro.
Replace All- Cuz.
Hmm, let’s change this line to this
and this to this. That she do it, she mused. Click,
File, Send. Bron waited for the file to upload and
continued to half listen to the interview.
“So Nick what’s your favorite thing
to do on the road.” The DJ asked him.
“Oh, I don’t know, surf the internet
and read stuff,” Nick replied.
The DJ asked him, “What do you read?”
“Fan fics,” Nick laughed.
The DJ was shocked, “You read them?”
The guys were snickering in the background.
They couldn’t believe he actually admitted it. “Yeah
sure, why not? Some of them are so funny,” He quipped.
The guys could see that Nick was
trying very hard to finish the interview on a happy
note. But they could see he was angry with all of
them, especially Brian and Kevin.
“Any favorites?” the DJ laughed as
he asked the question.
Nick looked at Kevin and grinned.
“Mainly, I stick to a writer named Kaylin, she’s real
cool and I like her.” Nick watched the rage in Kevin’s
face, for bringing it up.
The DJ was very curious now, “Well
what does she write about? This is interesting.”
“Mainly Train, she has the hots for
him,” Nick giggled.
Kevin could tell Nick was doing this
to get even with him over the remark about not seeing
The DJ spoke into his microphone,
“Well Kaylin, if you’re out there Nick Carter is a
real fan of yours.”
Bron sat smiling, “I love you Little
Man. Mc hooked me up with the wrong Backstreet Boy.”
An idea flashed through Bron’s head and she ran to
the phone book, found a number, and quickly dialed
The interview continued while Bron
was on the phone, she was grinning from ear to ear.
At the studio the fellas watched
outside the glass as one of the assistants began jumping
up and down and holding two fingers in the air. The
woman was so excited she couldn’t contain herself.
The DJ punched line two on the phone.
“Morning do you have a question for the Boys?” he
“Well no, I just wanted to say hi
to Little Man, I hear he is a fan of mine,” came a
giggling voice of the speakers in the studio.
“Kaylin!” Nick yelled. He couldn’t
believe she would do this. You are to good Bron,
he said to himself.
“How are you?” he grinned as he watched
Kevin’s face make painful contortions.
“Fine Little Man. I just wanted
to call and tell you that I just posted the next chapter.
I wrote it while I was out of town.” Bron laughed
into phone. Ha-Ha Lurch she laughed in her head.
The boys began snickering in the
studio. The DJ was amused, whoever this woman was
they liked her. Kevin sat and stewed about it. She
wouldn’t dare he thought.
“What’s it about?” the DJ asked.
Nick lost it and was hysterically laughing.
“Well I guess Train’s in for the
evening of his life. He comes home, the house is
dark but candlelight is glowing from the bedroom,”
Bron snickered. Howie joined Nick in the laughter.
The DJ watched Kevin shift uncomfortably
in the chair. Man having stuff written about you
by strangers would make anybody uncomfortable.
Mc was standing outside the studio
desperately trying to reach Jake to get Bron off the
phone. He didn’t even want her voice on the airwaves.
He told Kevin to say he wasn’t seeing anybody. If
Lenny was listening, he would know it was her.
Bron continued speaking into the
phone and over the airwaves. “He walks to the bedroom
door, opens it, and finds the one thing that he has
desired his entire life but couldn’t have; laying
in his bed.” Bron laughed.
Brian lost it along with Howie and
Nick. The DJ noticed the only ones not laughing out
loud were A.J. and Kevin.
Bron stopped. “So I guess you’ll
have to go read it,” she giggled.
Kevin let out a sigh of relief and
so did A.J. Thank you darlin’, Kevin thought.
The DJ didn’t like being left hanging,
nor his audience. “Come on Kaylin don’t leave us
hanging give us something,” he said.
“Well you just never know who…” Bron
paused. “B-Rok..in Kev’s world.” Bron hung up quickly.
Brian’s yell of “What, No Way!” was
heard on the airwaves. Brian’s remark was promptly
followed by A.J.’s “Revision that’ll teach ya Bri.”
Kevin started yelling, “I’m gonna….,”and the interview
cut to a commercial.
Bron was dancing around the suite
chanting, “Gotcha Lurch!” “Ok Bron, time to get a
grip,” she laughed.
Bron went up to the website and added
one more thing for Mary. Bron removed the disk and
laid it on the desk. She unplugged the laptop and
set it in her duffel.
She sighed, “At least I know now
what you guys really think of me.”
Bron went to the bedroom, gathered
up her things, dropped them in the duffel, and zipped
it up. As she walked out of the suite she thought,
see ya round fellas.
Bron crept down the hall. She walked
by Jake’s door and heard him laughing he was watching
TV. Bron snuck into Nick’s room and saw that he had
left his wallet on the dresser. What an idiot she
thought, but good luck for me. Bron grabbed it and
removed a credit card. Sorry Little Man but I’ll
pay you back. Lurch has all my stuff and I’m not
staying here any longer. Bron slipped the card in
her back pocket.
Bron turned to leave and saw Nick’s
laptop sitting on the desk. Bron smiled, I wonder
she thought. Walking over to it she flipped it on.
I’m sure it has to be here somewhere as she poked
around the contents. Yep there it is. Let’s just
let Kevin’s mama know about his dark side. Bron typed
a short note and typed in the link to Night Train.
“This should make Lurch sweat,” she giggled.
Bron slipped out of Nick’s room and
made her way to the elevator. Bron pushed the button
and hoped Jake didn’t hear or notice her.
Bron got downstairs and outside.
She was petrified thinking that was too easy. Bron
caught a cab and settled in for the ride to the airport.
She sat looking out the window. It was fun, but now
it’s time to go home. The traffic was a mess but
she knew she had all the time in the world as she
sat back and smiled.
