When I reached Frank's door, I slid the key down the electronic device and when the red light turned green, I opened the door and made my way quietly to FrankieÃ¢Â s bed and climbed in. He must have felt me get in because he groaned.
Ã¢ÂÂ½What the hell?Ã¢ÂÂ He asked groggily.
Ã¢ÂÂ½Sorry Frankie.Ã¢ÂÂ I said quietly.
Ã¢ÂÂ½Andrea? What are you doing here? HowÃ¢Â d you get a key?Ã¢ÂÂ He sounded almost wide awake now.
I told him how I got the key, and how freaked out I was.
Ã¢ÂÂ½And I trusted you the most, so here I am!Ã¢ÂÂ I finished in a whisper.
Ã¢ÂÂ½Oh, thatÃ¢Â s good. IÃ¢Â m glad. Now go to sleep, Andi,Ã¢ÂÂ He said tiredly, and within minutes, we were both sound asleep.
I woke up when I felt the bed move and I heard voices. 'Guess the guys are up!' I thought to myself and was about to get up, but I heard my name.
Ã¢ÂÂ½WhatÃ¢Â s going on between you and Andrea?Ã¢ÂÂ That was Gerard. His voice was unmistakable.
Ã¢ÂÂ½Nothing. She got scared, so she got a key and came in here.Ã¢ÂÂ Frank responded nonchalantly.
Ã¢ÂÂThen why were yÃ¢Â all so close?Ã¢ÂÂ
Ã¢ÂÂ½Because, Gerard. IÃ¢Â m a cuddler. You know this. And IÃ¢Â m assuming she is, too.Ã¢ÂÂ Frank sounded annoyed. Ã¢ÂÂ½Why does it bother you so much?Ã¢ÂÂ Frank asked, annoyance tinged his voice ever so slightly.
Ã¢ÂÂ½It doesnÃ¢Â t!Ã¢ÂÂ Gerard answered quickly.
I got the sudden urge to pee. Ã¢Â~I wish theyÃ¢Â d hurry up and quit talking about me!Ã¢Â I screamed in my mind. 'All right, I canÃ¢Â t wait.' I thought after a minute, and I faked a Ã¢Â~just-waking-upÃ¢Â movement and shot out of the bed to the bathroom. My foot started to sting a little, but I was in too much of a hurry to notice. Thank God it didnÃ¢Â t hurt as bad.
When I came out, I saw Frank and Gerard packing.
Ã¢ÂÂ½It must suck for you guys to be up this early,Ã¢ÂÂ I groaned as fell onto FrankieÃ¢Â s bed.
Ã¢ÂÂ½It does.Ã¢ÂÂ Gerard said.
Ã¢ÂÂ½Mmph. I camph bleef yuh guyf hafuh be up thith urly, itth too dark to be upfÃ¢ÂÂ I spoke into the pillow.
Ã¢ÂÂ½What?Ã¢ÂÂ Frank laughed.
I turned my head slowly and slammed my head back on the pillow Ã¢ÂÂ½I canÃ¢Â t believe you guys have to be up this early, itÃ¢Â s still dark,Ã¢ÂÂ I yawned.
Ã¢ÂÂ½You better get used to it. At least until Sunday,Ã¢ÂÂ Frank said as he continued packing. But I wasnÃ¢Â t looking at Frank. I was looking at Gerard who was, in turn, looking at me with an indecipherable stare.
About ten minutes later, we were headed out to the tour bus and leaving. I went to the back of the bus and took the cover I had used while trying to sleep earlier. I was going to go back to sleep; and apparently, everyone had the same idea. I put the cover over my head and started to drift. Then I heard Gerard talk.
Ã¢ÂÂ½IÃ¢Â m going to be back here, so you can sleep in my bunk if you want.Ã¢ÂÂ He offered.
Ã¢ÂÂ½How are you still UP?Ã¢ÂÂ I groaned as I rolled over to face him.
Ã¢ÂÂ½IÃ¢Â m still a little tired, I guess. But there are things I need to take care of.Ã¢ÂÂ He said while taking out his lap top.
Ã¢ÂÂ½Well IÃ¢Â m too tired to move,Ã¢ÂÂ I stated matter-o'-factly.
Ã¢ÂÂ½IÃ¢Â m not going to be loud. Just go back to sleep,Ã¢ÂÂ He yawned.
I decided to be obedient, since that's what I was going to do anyway.
