*Still El's POV*
I walked into the living area where I saw the girls engaged in a deep conversation. I stopped walking when they all looked at me and smiled. "Oh God. What did you guys do?" I asked with dread filling my body.
"Nothin'" Aqua said.
"LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!" Scarlet shouted and I laughed with a shake of my head. These three were something else.
"What do you want to do?" I asked as I sat next to Aqua.
They all looked at each other and then shouted in unison, "ALL NIGHTER!"
"Did I give you mofos coffee or something? And no. We can't stay up late; we have to get the boys from the airport tomorrow at ten a.m." I said with a shake of my head. They all gathered around me and put on puppy dog faces. I was doomed, THIS WAS MY WEAKNESS!
"But, El, we already thought about that. We will pull an all nighter and when it's time to go we can get energy drinks if we're super tired." I began to shake my head 'no' but Aqua said, "Please! Pleasepleaseplease!" She grabbed my legs as she continued to beg. Don't give in, Eleanor. Do not give in. Don't.
"Fine," l grumbled. They all cheered and high-fived each other.
"Scarlet, can I borrow some pajamas?" Aqua asked.
"Of course chicka. You can use some, too, El! C'mon." We followed her up the stairs and into Scarlet's room. I gave her a confused look when Wynter went into a room farther down the hall.
"She's been sleeping over so she has clothes in the room down there," she says, answering my unvoiced question. She began digging through her drawers. "El, you can wear these," she says throwing me a pair of black pajama pants and a white tank top. "Aqua these are yours." She hands Aqua a pair of blue pajama pants and a pink tank top. "One of you can use my bathroom and there is another one at the end of the hall." Aqua took her bathroom, so I made my way down the hall. After I had changed and put my hair in a messy bun, I left the bathroom and when I saw Wynter emerge from her room in white shorts with colorful polka dots and a skin-tight T-shirt, I skipped over to her. She smiled at me and I frowned when I saw the bruise on her cheek.
"Don't even think about apologizing again Eleanor, or I swear I'll shave your head in your sleep! Don't think I won't, cause we all know I would," she said while pointing at me. I closed my mouth and she smiled. "Good girl." She ran down the steps with me close behind.
"Alright, now. El, you go in the garage and grab some sodas. Aqua order us a large meatlovers pizza Make that two. Wynter, you help me get snacks and everything else. GO GO GO!" Scarlet directed. I jumped up from my place on the couch, feeling super excited for what this night should bring. I ran
into the garage and loaded my arms with four 2-liters of Sprite, one for each of us. Once I was sure they wouldn't fall I made my way back to the living room.
The table was filled with snacks and blankets were spread out on the floor close to the TV. A large stack of movies was next to the TV. Aqua was still on the phone with a pizza place while Scarlet and Wynter were arguing over what songs to play. I quickly set down the sodas when I got a genius idea. I grabbed the Up All Night CD from my purse and walked over to them.
"What about this?" I ask. They both glance at me, then the CD, then back at me with cheesy smiles.
"You are a GENIUS!" Scarlet screams. She grabs the CD and puts it into the CD player. By now Aqua is off the phone and she comes over to see what we're doing. The surround sound begins to blast the music and we all start to sing.
(Poor little Liam doesn't have anybody yet so they're all going to sing his part)
All (Liam's part): You're insecure, don't know what for. You're turning heads when you walk through the do-o-or. Don't need make up, to cover up. Bein' the way that you are is eno-o-
