A Collaboration between Bron and Suzie
the hell is the matter with him?" Sheridan hissed towards
Angel and Marybeth in a crowded bathroom. After storming out
of the elevator, Sheridan made a beeline to the nearest place
she could get away from Kevin without him following her.
"You seem a
little tense Sheridan. What's been going on this week with you
two? Are you alright?" Angel asked concerned, since she
hadn't seen her friend in a couple of days.
"Not like you'd
know. You haven't been around." Sheridan snapped. "And
your flirting with Kevin is inappropriate too!" Standing
now with her arms folded in front of her, a pout formed on Sheridan's
lips as she told Angel she wasn't happy with the way she was
Shock and hurt registered
on Angel's face.
Marybeth needed to
intervene before another incident at Sundance was caught on
film by the paparazzi. "Sheridan, you know Angel has been
busy maintaining appearances these past few days, just like
you have been busy with meetings and networking."
Sheridan's shoulders slouched forward and her head hung low.
"I know. But her job seems like it's been more fun than
mine and not as stressful."
Still feeling the
sting from her words, Angel retaliated, "I've been doing
exactly what I was supposed to. You're the one who took the
job working for Kevin as his assistant so deal with it. I'm
sick and tired of hearing you complain." With that statement,
Angel thundered out of the restroom to catch up with the guys.
Sheridan turned towards
Marybeth who now had put her arm around her shoulders and was
providing Sheridan with some comfort. "She's just cranky.
She's had too much alcohol these past few days and not enough
whispered, "That may be true Marybeth, but Angel's right.
I have been complaining about one thing or another when it comes
to dealing with my relationship with Kevin. He confuses me and
I don't know how to respond." Feeling tears building up,
Sheridan's mind began to swirl, "I should look into therapy
when we get back to LA. Lord knows, it couldn't hurt with everything
I've been through this past year."
Marybeth gave her
a reassuring hug. "Come on, let's go get something to eat
and forget about him."
shrugged out of the hug. Sheridan quickly wiped her eyes and
blinked back the remaining tears.
Angel tried to shake
off the feeling of anger running through her. She mentally began
thinking about what day of the month it was, which helped explain
to herself why she was so impatient with her friend. It also
explained Sheridan's cranky mood as well.
Nick saw his girlfriend's
face and wondered what happened. He met her halfway and pulled
I'm just tired and don't want to deal with Sheridan's whining."
Angel didn't feel like talking about what happened in the bathroom
so she changed the subject, "Is Kevin really drinking alcohol
out of that thing?"
got into him. He's not been acting like himself."
Angel mumbled, "I
wonder what his plan is." She tried in vain to figure out
what Kevin's plan would be.
"I haven't got
the faintest idea," Nick replied. When he felt eyes on
him, he turned towards Angel who was raising her eyebrow at
him. "I swear Angel, this time, I don't have a clue."
Kevin ran into some
friends, Shannon Elizabeth and Joe Reitman, when the elevator
reached the lobby. He stopped to chit-chat with them but had
lost his group of friends until he spotted Nick and Angel talking
in the hallway. "There y'are little man. Where you been?"
As Kevin approached
them, Angel whispered to Nick, "Do you know how much alcohol
Nick replied, "But I'm sure we'll find out as the night
goes on and he drinks more." Nick hadn't seen Kevin bombed
in quite some time. It could very interesting and useful for
'Oh goodie… One more
thing for Sheridan to complain about. Lucky me,' Angel mentally
said to herself.
Nick noticed the
sad expression on his girlfriend's face. He would ask her about
it as soon as Kevin disappeared.
"Time to go
to work kids," was all that Kevin said as he walked between
the couple and grabbed each of them by the arm and walked. "Nick,
how did the taping with Access Hollywood go this morning?"
Nick began chewing
the inside of his cheek, "As good as can be expected I
Kevin was going to
drill him. It would be a perverse diversion instead of wondering
where the hell Sheridan and Marybeth went off to. "What
did they ask you? What did you say?"
Nick wasn't in the
best of moods, and he felt being grilled by Kevin was unnecessary.
"Can't you just wait to see it like everyone else?"
on Kevin's face. "I was just wondering how you were doing
Nick. I don't care what you answered."
Nick's head cocked
to the side and glared at Kevin, "Well then, why don't
you ask that instead of wanting a full transcript?"
'When the hell did
this kid grow up?' Kevin thought. 'He never used to do that
shit to me.' "Hey look Nick, I'm sorry man. I didn't mean
to go parental on you." Kevin pulled Nick towards his body
and kissed the top of his head. "Sorry dude. It won't happen
Peering out the bathroom
door, Sheridan did a quick glance to the right, then to left
before proceeding out with caution. She saw the trio walking
down the hallway towards the party. Kevin's arm draped over
Nick's shoulder. Marybeth and Sheridan made their way out of
the bathroom and headed towards the food.
Meanwhile, the couple
needed a few minutes to refocus their energy. Nick sensed something
was off with Angel and needed to make sure she was alright.
The last thing he needed was her taking off and leaving him
behind. Telling Kevin they would be back in half an hour, Nick
and Angel avoided the camera flashes while trying to regroup
"How can you
be 'on' all the time Nick? This is so much harder than I thought
it would be." Angel cried as she felt tears building. The
cameras had finally stopped following them.
I'm sorry if this is getting to be too much."
The couple had attended
more than thirteen events since they arrived with not much time
Pouting, Angel replied,
"You didn't even tell me about Access Hollywood!"
Feeling a knot brewing
in the pit of his stomach, Nick answered cautiously. "Well,
they asked about my family - mostly my brother and mother. Then
they asked about me and the boys. We wrapped the interview up
with discussing my personal life with the woman who I seemed
to be photographed an awful lot with." Nick gave her a
cheesy grin hoping to soften the reality of what his words really
Her eyes grew with
each passing second waiting for Nick to elaborate. "And?"
"So now the
speculation is over with. I told them that you and I are a serious
couple and that's all they will know. Oh, I did clarify that
we were not living together." Nick was proud he remembered
to mention that. He didn't want to find Bridie and Shamus Lydon
banging on his front door any time soon.
Angel's mouth hung
open for quite some time as she digested what Nick just confessed.
"You told them? Oh my God, you told them you were in a
serious relationship? Johnny's going to have a fit when he hears
this." Angel started pacing in the carpeted room the couple
locked themselves in.
the one who helped advise me what to say and what not to say.
He's fine with it. He thinks that it will help keep the media
off any track they hear about the movie. Now the focus will
be on my family issues, which I hate but what can I do, you
and me, and finally me recording with the boys again."
Giving Nick an apologetic
smile, Angel hugged him tightly. They held each other for a
few minutes in silence. "This is nice," Angel said
Nick nodded his head
in agreement. His mind was brewing up all different types of
scenarios that could happen after this show airs. He was holding
on for dear-life so Angelina wouldn't sprint out the front door
and out of his life. Nick had no idea how much interest one
person would have once they viewed Access Hollywood.
promise will be a relaxing day lounging around your apartment
doing laundry, okay?" Nick still needed to finish getting
ready for Angel's birthday but he needed reassurance right now
that she wasn't going to hide herself away like she did once
Angel had forgotten
they would be leaving Utah the next day and was a bit apprehensive
about going back to her apartment where Sheridan would be. She
was mad at her and didn't want to face her anytime soon. It
was bad enough they were all going out this evening and she
had no choice.
Nick felt Angel tense
up which only made his heart race even faster.
"Um… Nick. Would
you mind if we did it at your place instead?" Angel was
giving Nick her best puppy eye, pout face.
Relief washed over
him like a tidal wave. Picking Angel up, he spun her around
"Yes, you mind?"
Angel questioned becoming dizzy as well as confused.
"I mean, NO!"
he shouted, "I don't mind at all. We'll stay at my place.
All day." Mentally Nick was still working out his birthday
plans for Angel. She may want to do wash at his place but he
would simply tell her they shut off his water for repairs and
they would have to go to the apartment.
Angel had noticed
Nick was acting particularly weirder than normal today. As she
was about to question him, Kevin barged into the 'private' function
room Nick and Angel disappeared into.
are. What's been taking you guys so long? It's not like you
haven't seen each other in years. C'mon…..it's time to pah-rtay."
The trio entered
Sean John's party and met up with Marybeth and Sheridan, who
were seated in a booth already. Nick felt like celebrating as
well and went straight to the bar getting drinks. Angel didn't
want to go sit, so she joined Nick at the bar. There, they ran
into Rob Thomas and his wife, Marisol.
join us," Rob motioned to a table for four.
Kevin looked back
over his shoulder to see that he misplaced Nick and Angel again.
Turning back to his table, he muttered, "At least they're
at the party now."
Marybeth and Sheridan
stared at the foursome talking and laughing. Suddenly, as the
party had a "quiet" moment, Sheridan caught the distinctive
sound of Angel's snorting, but it sounded two-dimensional. Then
a loud roar came from Nick and Rob as they realized their girls
both snorted when laughing. This caught the attention of a photographer.
Not giving a rat's ass, Angel smiled pretty for the camera,
while canoodling with Nick.
to watch in amazement.
Kevin was becoming
more annoyed by each passing second. "Would you like me
to take a picture Sheridan? It lasts longer - or so Angel told
me." Kevin began laughing thinking back to that meeting.
As he emptied his second drink, he steadied himself to get a
third. Marybeth noticed Kevin's demeanor and offered to go to
the bar to get him a refill.
"Or he could
just wait for the waitress to come by this way?" Sheridan
Kevin gave her a
lop-sided grin, "What's the matter Sheridan?"
"You are getting
hammered, that is what is the matter with me. Angel and Nick
have done nothing but appearances and now you're getting drunk
too." Sheridan fired the words from her mouth. She was
pissed, but what made her feel even worse was she knew that
her anger towards Angel wasn't justified.
Kevin cocked his
head towards Sheridan and his eyebrows rose. "Maybe Missy,
once in awhile, I like to get drunk too. I don't know what is
wrong with you but sheath the claws. I'm not in the mood."
Kevin had let her know he wasn't happy with the way she was
acting. He wasn't happy either. Stepping to the bar, his plan
to spend time with Sheridan alone earlier this morning backfired
on him. Tonight she was in a rotten mood and he was tense. "Make
it a double," he nodded to the bartender as he turned around
and looked back to where he had come from.
Sheridan sat digging
her nails into the cushion of the booth. "I'm losing my
mind. My roommate is mentally torturing me. She is having a
hell of a lot more fun on this trip than I am. I'm being tortured
by my boss…"
"You mean friend,"
Marybeth whispered as she tried to get Sheridan to calm down.
It didn't work as Sheridan's lips formed a solid line. A waitress
delivered a glass of wine for each of them. Marybeth leaned
up to the server and whispered something.
Sheridan kept her
mouth shut until the waitress left. "My friend, my boss,
who knows maybe my lover… But damn it's too much pressure."
Marybeth eyed Sheridan as her cell phone rang. She would have
to call whoever it was back.
"All of this,
I hate it. I'm trying to be perfect. I'm working for him,"
to be perfect. Nobody is perfect." Marybeth stole a glance
towards the bar to see Kevin openly staring at them. "As
far as Kevin goes, he told you what he wanted. It's your decision."
"It's not supposed
to be my decision. He's the leading man," Sheridan let
a breath out as her shoulders sank into the cushions causing
Marybeth to dissolve into hysterical fits of laughter. "Stop
laughing at me."
"I'm sorry he's
not playing the bodice-ripper role that you have written so
much about. Does it suck that he actually is giving you a choice?"
Marybeth slapped the table with her hands in complete enjoyment
of what she had just learned. Sheridan wanted Kevin to be the
romantic strong-willed dominate male of her fantasies. Instead,
he was just Kevin Richardson from Kentucky. "Look you couldn't
handle a man like that. You had a glimpse of that when we were
getting on the elevator. For crying out loud, you jumped two
feet off the ground when he yelled."
Sheridan tossed her
head back onto the booth with a thump. "I'm confused. I
want him, I really want him. It has been so long since I have…"
Kevin slid next to her in the booth. He had grabbed the waitress's
tray and told her to go get a few more. Sliding the tray on
the table, he smiled. He dropped an arm around Sheridan. "Since
what?" he repeated.
Sheridan's face turned
red and she grabbed a shot. She politely replaced the shot glass
on the tray after gulping the liquid. She coughed and sputtered,
her eyes watered.
used the lime and salt," Kevin laughed as he dabbed the
tears from her eyes with a napkin.
"I think my
insides are on fire," Sheridan wheezed as he leaned in
"Give it a minute.
It'll go away," Marybeth giggled. 'Well not what is really
causing the fire, but the tequila you just inhaled will' she
laughed in her head.
Angel heard Marybeth
laughing from across the room. She watched Sheridan pound down
a shot and it shocked her. When she saw the server drop off
an entire tray of shots to the threesome, she elbowed Nick and
Nick was the first
one up as he quickly told Rob that he would be in contact with
him over the soundtrack. Angel grabbed Nick's hand and they
cut across the floor space as if rockets were up their asses.
"What are you
doing guys?" Angel shoved Kevin further into the booth,
which in turn shoved Kevin into Sheridan. Nick went to Marybeth's
"My three favorite
girls. I'm a lucky man Carter."
Kevin," Nick laughed.
"Not yet, but
I'm workin' on it." Kevin pushed a shot in front of everyone.
Marybeth did hers, so did Angel, Nick, and Kevin. Sheridan grinned,
"I did one, and all of you need to catch up."
Kevin's hand drifted
to the back of the booth. His arm rested across the top around
Sheridan's shoulder. "Do we have any secrets between each
Angel shoved a shot
glass in Kevin's hand. "Drink more, we'll find out."
"To you, sweet
Angel," Kevin snickered and downed the shot. Reaching for
his flask, he offered it to Sheridan. Her meek "I'll pass,"
landed on his heart and he took a long swig. Getting her drunk
wasn't going to work if she didn't drink.
Angel snatched the
flask from Kevin and took a swig. She coughed and looked at
Nick. "Jack straight."
"Gimme dat back,"
Kevin retrieved his flask and secured it back in his pocket.
"Excuse me Nick,"
Marybeth indicated she wanted out of the booth as she began
to slide towards the opening.
Angel fretted for
two seconds and followed Marybeth.
to move but Kevin didn't budge. "You don't have to go;
you just want to be with them. Sit this one out."
Nick snickered as
Sheridan shifted uncomfortably in the seat. "I think she
does have to go." Nick shook his shaggy blonde head.
Kevin mumbled and let her out. "Damn sweet ass," Kevin
watched her walk towards the restroom.
planning for the evening has failed Commander. You will not
get first-mate Sheridan drunk, as per Officer Angelina,"
or is it first mating," Kevin hee-hawed a little too loud.
The cameras turned towards Kevin and Nick. They sat, caught
with a table full of shots and just the two of them sitting
in the booth. "Fuck," Kevin groaned.
"When they come
back, let's head over to Arquette's party. I hear it's slammin'"
Nick leaned in but not too close. From past experience, that's
how rumors started about him and Kevin having a sexual relationship.
Every time he heard the rumors it ooged him out, Kevin would
just go postal about the shit.
"What and waste
these shots?" Kevin balked and did two more.
Nick groaned quietly. Nick began to slowly push the tray as
far away from Kevin as he could. He was hoping that the tray
would fall off the table, anything. Rob stopped at the table
to say good-bye with Marisol and Kevin offered a toast to the
soundtrack. Nick refused saying he had enough, the shots would
be gone after this toast.
Sheridan dabbed at
her eyes with a tissue. "Angel, I'm sorry. I'm not mad
at you anymore. I'm frustrated and stressed and I was blaming
you for it."
Angel crossed her
arms, not sure if she was ready to accept the apology or not.
They fought like classic sisters most days.
"Did you know
that Kevin barged in on Sheridan this morning? She wasn't even
Angel's jaw clamped shut and she began to purse her lips.
Sheridan tossed the
tissue in the garbage can. "I was so embarrassed; he had
to change clothes before he left."
Angel's voice repeated but rose two octaves.
"I spilled coffee
all over his shirt. He came flying through the door and I lost
the grip on my coffee cup because he startled me. The coffee
landed all over the front of his shirt. I tried to help him
clean-up but it just made matters worse." Sheridan's voice
became shrill as her nerves escalated trying to explain what
had happened. She launched into how she had agitated Kevin as
she tried to wipe off the coffee.
Angel turned to Marybeth
and grinned, "What's with the tray of shots?" Sidetracking
Sheridan would be a good thing right now.
"I have no idea,"
Marybeth grinned back. Both of them thinking the same thing,
Kevin was trying to get Sheridan drunk or at least to loosen
her up to his advances.
The two of them stood
smirking at each other as they stood in the powder room.
"That tequila nearly killed me; this is why I only drink
wine." Sheridan being obtuse over what Marybeth and Angel
Marybeth's cell rang
again and this time she answered it. "Hi A.J." she
leaned on the wall. "No we're in the ladies room talking."
Marybeth's laughter was followed by a series of 'yes, no, and
uh-huh's'. Flipping the phone closed after a five-minute conversation,
she watched the roommates hug. "All is forgiven?"
she questioned them.
"Yes, I'm stressed
out over having to give my boss his answer," Sheridan's
lips twisted as her nose scrunched up. "I was taking it
out on her."
"She just needs
to get laid," Angel snorted.
Pounding on the bathroom
door caused all of them to jump. "Come on, what are you
ladies doin' in there?" The words may have been slurred,
but there was no doubt who was on the other side of the door
and it wasn't Nick.
The three women exited
the restroom and stood in front of him like soldiers. Nick's
shoulders started to shake as he looked at Angel. She truly
was stunned that Kevin banged on the door. "Good job Commander.
You have achieved your mission of rescuing the fine ladies from
Kevin handed coats
to Sheridan and Marybeth and began to walk away.
"Are we leaving?"
Sheridan slid her coat on.
"So says the
Commander," Nick leaned down to Angel. "We have to
watch him. He's really drunk. If someone pisses him off, there
could be a fight."
Angel rolled her
eyes; Nick could be a drama queen some days.
Walking down the
street to the Play Station 2 Lodge, the group entered to a flurry
of flash bulbs. Kevin grabbed Sheridan's hand and reined her
to his side. "Smile pretty," he winked at her as he
wrapped his arms around her shoulders.
Angel was cheering
in her head, finally something to take the heat off her and
Nick. Then Kevin did the same to Marybeth. Angel had to check
herself from doing a happy dance.
David Arquette was
hosting a karaoke party that was in full swing inside the lodge.
After finding a table, the five of them sat and watched as they
drank more than a few drinks. Marybeth's phone vibrated obsessively
on the table. To Marybeth's horror, Kevin grabbed the phone
and answered. "Listen Bone, leave the woman alone. We're
trying to get drunk here." Only about every other word
was intelligible coming out of Kevin's mouth. Kevin slapped
the phone shut and looked at Marybeth. "Hesss gone now."
When the phone rang
again, she grabbed it and walked away. "We're watching
him. Yes A.J. I know it is not like him. Yes, something is bothering
him. I think it's the tiny blonde sitting next to him. No, nothing
has happened yet with the two of them. We'll make sure he's
okay. Love you too." Marybeth closed the phone and then
stared at it for the longest time. A.J. had said, "I love
you," to her and she had returned it. Distinct voices pulled
her eyes from the phone to the stage. Then she started to laugh
as she made her way back to Kevin and Sheridan who sat at the
Angel and Nick were
on stage hamming it up of for the crowd. When they started to
sing Purple Rain, she snickered. They looked cute together and
seemed to be having a genuine good time. The press was at a
minimum with only hired photographers in the lodge. They laughed
and played on stage with each other and the crowd.
Kevin coaxed Nick
to do another song and he refused. Sheridan's laugh echoed through
the room when Angel began to sing "Hello" by Lionel
Ritchie. "I wish I had this on tape."
Nick and Angel rejoined
the table with a thunderous applause.
"Good job, my
turn." Kevin stood up, more like a wobble.
Nick steadied him,
"You don't want to sing." Nick was trying to get Kevin
not to do something that he would regret later. After two songs,
Kevin took the stage.
"Dawg, you're wasted. Don't do this." Nick's hand
was shoved away by Kevin.
Angel snorted while
Marybeth sat with her mouth hanging open. Nick wanted to crawl
under the table and hide. He knew this wouldn't be good, but
didn't realize to what extent it would make his ears bleed.
Sheridan sat with her head slightly tilted to the side. She
was listening even if Kevin was making it difficult not to laugh.
"Man of Constant
Sorrow wasn't meant for this crowd," Angel winced in between
trying to hide her laughter. She put her hand on Nick's back
and rubbed his shoulder's back and forth trying to comfort him.
they catch wind of the original artist. Saggy Bottom Boys,"
Marybeth giggled. She called A.J. just so he could listen in.
"He sounds like
a blood hound in heat," A.J. cackled on the telephone after
listening for a minute.
Nick groaned loudly. "He is so wasted. We have to get him
out of here."
Sheridan tried not
to laugh, but in the end she had begun to giggle along. Kevin
was so drunk that every time he leaned over the audience they
would put their hands up in case he pitched off the stage into
the crowd. The audience applauded sparingly and Kevin took his
seat obviously to the cool review.
"I think we
should go," Sheridan stood up.
Kevin fired down two more shots before he stood up.
Nick shook his head.
Angel and Marybeth
stood up and put their coats on. The only way that Kevin would
leave was if all of them left at the same time.
Exiting the door
Kevin swung an arm over Nick's shoulder. "Ya know… I'm
a lit-tle drunk."
Nick laughed as Kevin's weight shifted onto him. The gay voice
that Kevin did drove Nick nuts. Now the real task began, getting
Kevin back to the hotel without anyone catching him on film.
He wouldn't leave Kevin vulnerable in a situation like this.
Kevin had covered for him too many times in the past. Grabbing
a cab, he poured his older brother into the vehicle. The ladies
followed in another cab. It would be impossible for all of them
to fit into one car with Kevin's body sprawled out in the backseat.
Sheridan and Marybeth
entered the hotel first making sure that no press was around.
Sheridan ran out to the cab as Angel and Marybeth held the elevator.
"Come on," Sheridan grabbed the door handle on the
cab and pulled the door open. She helped Nick with a very drunk
Nick grunted, "The
last two shots kicked in," as they exited the elevator
to their floor.
Kevin floundered in the hallway like a fish out of water. His
arms wind-milled as he tried to stay upright. Finally, he gave
up and let his body sag when they opened his hotel room.
"Shit not yet."
Sweat ran down the side of Nick's face as he tried to stop Kevin
from falling on top of Sheridan.
as Kevin pitched towards the bed dragging Sheridan.
Sheridan tried to pull back only to have Kevin pull harder.
Nick was pulled up
on his toes to stop Kevin's weight.
Angel had to cover
her mouth to stop herself from screaming with laughter. Sheridan
was being whipped around like a rag doll. "Kevin stand
he dropped his eyes to the floor.
Nick let out a sigh
of relief, "From now on, she is always going with us. Come
on Commander Kevin, time for bed."
Kevin slurred. Turning his head he tried to focus on Sheridan.
He tried to smile but it looked more like a drool. "Bed
She- She - Sher you."
Nick closed his eyes
and wished he could punch Kevin in the face with no repercussions.
"Shut up!" Nick gave Kevin a push.
With a poof, Kevin
landed on the bed. "Bed good."
"A man of few
words," Angel stepped towards the bed.
"I'm outta here,"
Nick walked out the door leaving Kevin.
Angel and Marybeth
exchanged evil grins as Sheridan leaned down to tug off Kevin's
boots with no success. She straddled Kevin's leg and began to
pull on the boot.
Marybeth and Angel
snickered even more.
Turning her body
around, Sheridan now faced the door while straddling Kevin's
"We can't leave
him like this," Sheridan grumbled as she tried in vain
to remove the boot. They continued to harass her, "Will
you help me please?"
Kevin's other leg
moved swiftly, his foot landed on Sheridan's ass, and he shoved.
"Howze Zat?" Kevin laughed.
Sheridan yelled as
the boot and her body flew across the room. Landing with a thump,
she sat dazed for a minute. "You jerk!"
Nick heard the thud
and the yell and jogged back in the room. Marybeth and Angel
were struggling to stand up while laughing uncontrollably. Nick
then noticed Sheridan struggling to get up off the floor. Reaching
down, he helped her up. "What the hell happen?"
Angelina as they watched Sheridan turn in a circle trying to
see her own backside and wipe Kevin's boot print off her butt.
around and flung the boot to the floor. Storming to the bed,
she glared at Kevin. "I should leave you like this!"
Kevin couldn't talk
as he tried to stand up. Damn, Sheridan was pissed. He wobbled
in every direction. "Out!" He unbuttoned his jeans,
unzipped his fly. Hooking his thumbs in his boxers he looked
down and realized his other boot was still on. "Fuck!"
Kevin growled and tried to bend down to his foot. His entire
body swung left and he slammed into the nightstand. Ricocheting
off the nightstand, he slammed into the floor.
hold back, she yanked out her cell and pointed at Kevin as he
lay on the floor moaning. His pants around his knees and one
boot off; this picture would be priceless. All the shit he had
flung at her when they first started, this would even the score.
Focusing she blinked when she saw only darkness through the
"Put it away,"
Nick closed it for her and took it away. He jammed the phone
in his coat pocket for safekeeping.
Angel fought to get the phone back. He blocked her every attempt
to regain possession.
"No, Ya ain't
doin' that to him." With his hand over his pocket to keep
the phone, he stood over Kevin.
By now, Sheridan
was kneeling next to Kevin on the other side.
Picking his head
up slightly, Kevin rolled his head and it ended up in her lap.
"Are you okay?"
Sheridan cooed as her fingers fluttered over his face.
Kevin looked at the
porcelain face, with beautiful green eyes. Her upturned nose
wrinkled at him. "Uh-huh" he mumbled as he tried to
raise his hand to touch her.
Nick glared at him;
Kevin was wearing a goofy grin. "Are you okay man?"
Nick grabbed Kevin by the waist and hoisted him up on the bed.
By the face Kevin was wearing he was about to make a move on
Sheridan that would end up embarrassing both of them. He debated
if he should let him make an idiot of himself or not. Looking
at Sheridan he figured he couldn't do that to her or Kevin.
"You need to leave now ladies." Nick commanded.
Sheridan stood but
she wasn't sure what to do, she froze. For one split second,
she felt a connection with Kevin. It wasn't a connection of
boss and employee nor was it friends. It was a connection on
an emotional level, one of lovers. Her heart thumped in her
chest as she slowly backed out of the room. She dashed down
to her room and slammed the suite door.
Marybeth moaned as she left to check on Sheridan yelling down
the corridor, "I'm tired of playing den mother to you people.
I have a life." When her phone rang, she grinned. "Hello
A.J. I need a life."
"I want my phone
back." Angelina crossed her arms as she stared at Nick.
She wasn't moving.
"You betta watch
out, she wants me Nicky," Kevin laughed.
Angel huffed out the door. There were certain things that even
photos weren't worth. "I'll check on Louise and our Den
Mother. You deal with him."
