The guys took the beds even though they insisted that the girls at least take them. Phyllis took the pullout couch and Amanda slept on the floor, far enough away from the guys so she couldn’t hear any of them snore. Taylor layed in his bed but couldn’t sleep. He was restless and wanted to talk.
“Hey Ike!” Taylor yelled over to his brother in the other bed near his.
“What?” Ike asked sleepily.
“Are you awake?”
“What do you think Einstein?” Ike said angrily and turned over in his bed to face him.
“Do you mind if we talk?” Taylor asked.
“Well, I’m already up so go ahead.” Ike said to him.
“I was thinking…I wonder if the girls could come with us.”
“WHAT?!” Ike yelled, waking Zac up.
“I mean, you know…” Taylor stammered.
“Think about it logically Tay, two girls, mom, dad and all the rest. There’s no room.” Said Ike.
“What are you two babbling about? You woke me up!” Zac said angrily at the two of them.
“I thought we could bring the girls along with us on tour.” Taylor said, resting his head on his hand.
“YEAH!” Zac said excited.
“Oh, you’re just agreeing with him because you have the hots for Amanda.” Said Ike as he turned over to look at Zac.
“NO I DON’T! You do!” Zac laughed at Ike. Even though it was dark, Taylor and Zac could tell Ike was blushing uncontrollably as it fell silent in the room.
“WOULD YOU THREE SHUT UP!” A voice shot through the room. The light clicked on and Amanda and Phyllis were standing in the doorway. Amanda had her hands on her hips and looked incredibly angry. Phyllis on the other hand looked like she was going to curl up into a little ball on the floor and go to sleep.
“Sorry.” All three of them said meekly. Phyllis walked over to Taylor’s bed and sat down.
“We didn’t mean to wake you up.” Taylor smiled. Phyllis just smiled and yawned then collapsed onto his bed. Taylor looked up at Amanda and she walked over.
“Phyl.” Amanda said, nudging her.
“Phyllis like sleepy, sleepy like Phyllis, therefore, leave Phyllis and sleepy alone.” Phyllis mumbled and curled up more in the bed. Everyone started laughing.
“Well, I’m awake now! What are WE going to do?” Amanda said sternly.
“Wanna watch a movie?” Zac asked, rubbing his eyes.
“Sure, why not. Leave Phyl, she’s really tired.” Taylor said, looking down at Phyllis. They all climbed out of bed and headed to the other room. Taylor waited till they all left and walked back over to the bed. He helped Phyllis in the bed and put the covers over her. He bent over and kissed her lightly on her lips and left the room.
Amanda had the remote controller in her hand and was flipping through the channels. Ike and Zac already had taken over the couch. Taylor walked over and sat on the floor and leaned his head against the arm of the couch.
“We can watch ‘The horse whisperer’ or ‘Tu Wong Foo’.” Amanda said.
“TU WONG FOO!” The guys all announced. Amanda flipped the channel and they started to watch. What the guys didn’t realize was that ‘Tu Wong Foo’ was a movie with Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze and John Leguizamo in drag.
“WHAT THE HECK IS THIS?” Zac yelled.
“Shhh!” Taylor said, silencing Zac and looked back towards the room Phyllis was in.
“Sorry.” Zac said and turned back to watch the movie.
About half way through the movie Ike leaned over to Taylor.
“I’ll talk to dad.” Ike smiled. Taylor smiled back and got up.
“Where are you going?” Amanda asked. “The movie’s not over yet!”
“Sleep.” Taylor smiled. He walked into the bedroom and looked at the bed with Phyllis sleeping there peacefully. Taylor climbed in the bed beside her and put the covers over himself. He laid his head on the pillow, facing her and looked at her. She turned over and he moved in closer and kissed her shoulder and put his arms around her waist. She settled in his arms and they fell asleep.
