So first of all, I wanted to apologise. I actually forgot to upload the video of that song that Josh was singing. Do NOT ask me how I came across it lol because I really don't know! I was just trying to find something and I knew that I wanted a signature song for Josh and Sky, but I wasn't planning on using anything so stupid until I heard this song. Anyways, for those of you who just read the lyrics, the video is on now, and you'll see what I meant by Josh's Tarzan accent ;)

Another thing I wanted to mention, I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all the fans that comment and vote on my books. You guys are like AMAZING! Without you I would just be a lazy ass and write nothing! But you lot keep me motivated :)

So from me (and Josh ;P) we're sending you catrillions of hugs and kisses :)

Hope you enjoy the next chapter...

P.S. for those of you that want a Josh POV, don't worry, he will get one, I'm just linking them in first. So he will say hello sometime soon :D


We had been walking for half an hour now and we still hadn't reached the clearing where we were camping out.

The reason why we chose the furthest clearing was because it was the only one nearby the lake. Not many people knew about this clearing. It was kind of a special place between Lee and I. Ever since I was a little girl, my dad used to bring us camping here all the time. We used to come every year in the summer, until he died and Lee moved away. It was kind of weird experiencing this with all my friends this time. Part of me was upset that they all had to be here in our special place, especially with the unwanted Trashettes, but the other part of me was just grateful that they were here and could prevent me from having a mental breakdown.

Another reason why we chose this clearing was because it was the only one with a changing room and 4 toilet cubicles.

Okay so I'm all up for the camping thing. I mean sure I loved nature, but there was no way I was going to do my business in public, or in some hole in the ground thank you very much. I will take creepy bathroom with rusty toilets and barely running water any day.

I was tired and hungry and hot. The sun was scorching hot, and I was sweating like a pig. It didn't help that I was trekking through a forest carrying a solid oak 12 seater bench. Oh yeah you heard me right.

Since the clearing was so far from the van, and we couldn't drive any closer, we had to carry as much stuff as we could between us because we didn't want to make any second journeys (basically because we couldn't be bothered).

Lee, Jesse and Chase were carrying all of the bags, Rob and Mark carried the cooler and the food, Ty had ran ahead with the tents and was trying to set up on his own. To prove himself of a man, ha! Landon was helping Carrie carry the barbeque. I couldn't help but notice how much they were flirting with each other. I wonder how long it will take before Landon is her next heartbreak victim. Poor Landon, he didn't know what was coming. Carrie was lovely and all that, but she didn't see guys the way they see her. Once she's got them whipped, she breaks up with them. Not on purpose of course, she has just never experienced proper love before and is scared to commit to anything serious. That's why it results in a lot of heart break. I shook my head in disapproval. After all these years you would think she would learn.

Matt, Alice and I had to carry the picnic bench! I'm not kidding when I say this thing is heavy. It seriously is, and I'm not exactly a weakling.

Matt was carrying the one side, Alice was carrying the other, and I was supporting the middle. I swear this should be a guy's job. But it seemed to me three guys were already busy with their own personal packages.
