There isn't a lot that is more fun than lazing around on a weekend watching crap TV with your best friend.
Or at least this is how Miley Stewart saw it and the reason why her and Travis were lying on the large couch in their apartment flicking channels.
"No wait go back!" Travis said suddenly and sat up a little straighter.
"Isn't this an old episode?" Miley asked him holding the remote in her hand, finger hovering above the 'channel up' button.
"Last weeks yea, but after this guy they interview Lilly Truscott," He said excitedly.
"I'm hearing that name everywhere at the moment," Miley commented as Ellen Degeneres looked to the camera and confirmed that Lilly Truscott would be out after the ad break.
"Well yea, with the build up to the Olympics and all she the countries it girl, most likely to score and win us the gold in women's soccer, and she is only our age," He answered getting up and walking to the fridge, "Want a drink?"
"Water please," She answered watching a stupid commercial for a body spray, "I didn't know you were into the sport enough to watch her interview," Miley commented.
"I'm not but she is really good looking," Travis laughed, "Very your type," He added with a wink.
"What do you mean?" Miley asked.
"She's- Oh you'll see now," He said as Ellen came back on.
"Alright welcome back, our next guest is the hottest young soccer player in the country at the moment, her team is a favourite to win gold at the London Olympics, she has been drawing all kinds of attention lately, give it up for Miss Lilly Truscott!" Ellen introduced and the girl came out from backstage to the audience of women cheering feverishly. Lilly gave Ellen a hug and a kiss on the cheek and a wave to the audience making them scream louder as they took their seats, both laughing at the noise from the crowd.
"I think you have some fans," Ellen tried to joke over the noise. Lilly smiled an honest smile full of mirth like she couldn't believe it was happening, not even going to try talk over the din. Finally the crowd quietened down and the interview could start.
Miley was at a loss, the girl was so classically beautiful; long blonde hair, blue eyes, athletic figure and the sweetest smile she'd ever seen. Head to toe gorgeous, causing her to watch the interview with rapt attention.
"So first of all how are you?" Ellen asked casually.
"I'm good, I'm good," Lilly answered.
"Not nervous?" Ellen asked.
"Well, a little but only because of what you did to Taylor Swift, scared it might be a blonde thing," Lilly joked and the crowd laughed along.
"No, no that's just a Taylor thing," Ellen assured laughing herself, "I actually meant for the Olympics, you'll be part of our women's team in soccer of course," Ellen said and the crowd cheered and clapped.
"Yes, I will," Lilly nodded, "I'm more excited than anything, four years ago I was at home watching the Olympics and now I am a part of the team, it's unreal," another cheer.
"It certainly is," Ellen commented, "And you have been drawing all sorts of attention due to your age and leadership skills as well as your game play," Ellen prompted.
"Well yea, I'm quite young for a vice-captain, but I think it would be more shocking if I was captaining, Hope has that one pretty well locked up," Lilly said with a smile.
"Yes, fantastic player Hope Solo, but you yourself are quite a talent, bringing the team back from two-nil to win two-three scoring all three goals," Ellen mentioned getting another cheer from the crowd and a wide smile from Lilly before she answered.
"Yea, well we didn't deserve to lose, we conceded two goals and it's hard to lift your head up when that happens but we knew we had to fight to stay top of the group and the whole team pulled out an incredible effort to go on and win that game," Lilly said as the image behind them changed to one of her celebrating a goal.
"You look pretty happy," Ellen commented.
"Hard not to be," Lilly said with a smile.
"I imagine so," Ellen said also smiling, "Now Lilly, when we had David Beckham here we wanted him to take off his shirt," Ellen started.
"Yes I saw that," Lilly said her smile still in place but not sure quite what was about to happen.
"But I don't think I need to get you to since almost every photograph you take you have your shirt off," Ellen said as a collage of magazine photos came up, most of them with her wearing just a sports bra. The crowd laughed and cheered and Lilly smiled and didn't look embarrassed at all.
"With female athletes it's pretty much all they want, you know for ad campaigns and stuff," she laughed, "And I'm not really ashamed of my body so, you know... why not?" Lilly added.
"Yes, why not indeed," Ellen said starting a round of applause for the pro body image message, "Especially when you look like that I guess," Ellen said and an image flashed up of Lilly holding a soccer ball, covered in dirt, in a black bra and shorts, a slight six pack showing through. This one making Lilly laugh and the audience cheer.
"No silicone I swear," Lilly laughed and so did everyone else.
"I'm sure we all believe you, okay, we'll be right back with Lilly after this break," Ellen said to the camera.
"I told you, your type," laughed Travis standing up and moving towards the kitchen
"I don't know what you mean," Miley said shaking herself out of a daze.
"Miles, come on," He said coming back and giving her a pointed stare, "You were drooling," Travis laughed loudly as Miley quickly swiped at her chin. Feeling nothing and realising he was joking she gave him an angry look, "Miley's got a crush, Miley's got a crush," He sang.
"Shut up," Miley whined.
"Oh come on Miles I'm only joking, although the two of you together... damn," he said and Miley gave him the finger. "Now, now Miley what would your daddy say if he saw you doing that?" Miley just shrugged in response at first.
"You can ask him yourself, he'll be over tomorrow to take me to the airport," Miley said getting up off the couch and standing behind it, "And while you're at it ask what his thoughts on popstars coming out are."
"He loves you Miles, he just doesn't want you getting torn down by the public," Travis said, his smile gone and his tone serious.
"I know," Miley said her mind off somewhere else. She did know he loved her, she just wish he thought she was strong enough to handle everything on her own.
"So, it's too bad you're going to miss your going away party," Travis said after the silence dragged on too long
"What?" Miley asked coming out of her daze, confused by Travis' statement.
"It's a party in celebration of you going away and me finally having the place to myself," Travis joked sitting back down on the couch only to get hit over the head by a smiling Miley as she walked to her room, "Definitely won't miss that when you're gone to New York!" Travis called after her as he switched channels.
"Miley come on!" Robbie-Ray called through the apartment.
"I thought I told you to wait in the car Old man!" Miley yelled back.
"I did but you were taking too damn long!" The shouting match continued in the apartment.
"Leave already!" the voice of a tired Travis came just as Miley came into view of Robbie-Ray carrying her suitcase.
"Love you too Trav!" Miley called back down the hall.
"I got you something to read on the flight it's in your laptop bag, have fun," came the long but grumbly sounding reply. Miley's dad helped her with her bag as she grabbed her laptop bag from the table and headed down to the car. Soon they were at the airport and Robbie-Ray was saying his goodbyes.
"Okay so, you know what hotel you are going to?" Robbie asked.
"And I've sent you all the details of the interviews in an email."
"I know dad."
"And you are okay to go by yourself?"
"I'm old enough to handle this dad," Miley reassured giving the man a big hug and a smile.
"Okay, I'll see you in a few days, watch out for the press," He reminded and Miley laughed, like she could forget them.
"Will do dad," she said walking towards her gate. Still in his line of sight Miley was stopped by two girls asking for a photograph, she took the photos, chatted with the girls and then continued towards her gate. Seeing this Robbie-Ray took a deep confident breath and headed back to the car.
Sitting in her first class seat on the plane Miley decided she should check her laptop bag for whatever it was Travis had got her. She pulled out her laptop, placing it on the table and then unceremoniously upended the bag. She laughed to herself and made a mental note to get him back as an issue of Sports Illustrated with Lilly Truscott on the cover, again half naked, slid out onto her lap. Miley sat eyeing the magazine for a moment before shrugging her shoulders and flipping open the magazine to start reading.
