"I can't believe your dad let us go without him!" I said as we waited in Miley, sorry, Hannah's dressing room for a huge concert in Sacremento. This was the first concert Mr. Stewart had let us go on without him.
"He didn't exactly give us free reign though…" she said pointing at Jackson, who was sleeping on the couch about 10 feet away from us. Close enough that we could hear him snoring.
It had taken quite a bit of begging for us to get this much freedom. The truth was that Mr. Stewart didn't trust two fifteen year old girls to get in a limo and get out of a limo. When it came down to it, the choice had been him or Jackson and Jackson won. Jackson wasn't very happy though. You see, the press hadn't exactly dropped the whole 'Jacksannah' issue. Well, it bugged Miley because she was either dating Jackson or Jake, and it was all starting to wear on her. The new one was Nick Jonas, which I bugged her about because, on more than one occasion, I had caught her staring dreamily at his picture in Tiger Beat.
"Miss Montana, five minutes", a stage hand came in and warned us. He looked at Jackson and laughed. "Do you want me to get a bucket of water?"
Miley's eyebrow went up, but I knew we'd never be able to do this again if Jackson told on us, so before she could open her mouth, I shook my head. "No thank you, he's had a long day."
Which was probably true. He worked for Rico, that had to be tiring. Miley glared at me after the guy left.
"Why couldn't we have some fun?!"
"Because, we can't have fun with your dad around!"
"Lilly, you know, you have your moments."
"Thank you, wait, hey!"
She laughed at me, "Well Lola, are you gonna come watch the show?"
"Nah, I'll stay with the dwarf."
She looked at me like I had no idea what I was talking about. I was still three inches shorter than Jackson. "You know, Sleepy?"
She looked at me like she'd heard one too many bad jokes, then she walked out the door. A second later I heard the screams of her fans as she went on stage.
I looked over at Jackson, who was shaking with laughter, trying to pretend he was still asleep. Since he still hadn't opened his eyes I walked over to him. I stood there a second, but he didn't seem to notice I was standing there. I took one look at the smirk on his face and knew what do.
"Lilly!" he said from under me, not pretending he was asleep anymore. "That was cruel! Get off of me!"
Yeah, so I'd jumped on the moron. He deserved it. I got off of him and pulled over the chair from the vanity. I sat down backwards. He was still rubbing his chest from when I'd hit him.
"What were you laughing at dork?"
"I wasn't laughing, I was sleeping."
"Jackson, I'm dipsy, not stupid"
"Tinky Winky, Dipsy, LaLa…"
"Fine, the dwarf thing. I can't believe she didn't get that."
"You liked that did you?"
"Very much, now about the water…"
"The water Miley wanted dumped on your face…"
"Yes, thank you for saving me."
"I wasn't saving you."
"Do you think your dad would let you take us to these things instead of him if you told him we dumped water on your head?"
"I know. I'll just sleepover and get you tonight."
"Jackson! I'm not evil, but you might want to watch out for Miley. Sometimes I think she's hiding horns under that wig." I said, making a horn gesture behind my head.
He laughed, "Trust me, I know."
"So why aren't you watching the show?"
"Why aren't you?"
"Because I've seen this exact show 47 times. I could probably put on the wig and do it myself."
"How about you?"
"Yeah, I love hearing all the stagehands mumbling 'Jacksannah' behind my back."
"Also a good point."
"Thank you, I do have them once in a while."
I smiled at him and he smiled back. You know, Jackson's not so bad when he's not being…Jackson? Whatever, Miley only had ten minutes left and I was enjoying myself, at least more than I expected.
Wow, I'd never really talked to Lilly like this before. She wasn't as blonde as she looked. Well I guess she didn't even look very blonde right now. She was wearing a purple wig with hot pink streaks in it. Sometimes he felt bad for Miley and Lilly, they had to wear those stupid wigs. After Jacksannah, there wasn't really a point to him wearing one. Right now Lilly had a finger up hers, trying to scratch at something.
"You can take it off you know"
She looked up as if she just remembered he was there. "Uh, two words."
"I don't care."
"Well I don't care if you care, I care!"
"The wig is staying on"
I could hear the crowd screaming really loudly, it was starting to give me a headache.
"She usually has three encores, I've gotten to the point where I know when they are"
"You need a life"
"Tell me about it. Yep, there's #2"
"Either she loves her fans or she loves attention"
"I'd go with both." I started laughing, she was really funny. I was too busy noticing girls looks to think that they could be funny. Not like I thought of Lilly that way, I mean, no, she's my little sister's friend. I mean, she's not ugly or anything, but…
"Come on guys!"
I came out of it to see Miley in front of me, waving her hand in front of my face. She was doing the same to Lilly who was obviously also deep in thought. We both stood up at the same time, which kinda felt awkward.
"I thought you said she did three encores", I asked Lilly.
"I did", Miley said, obviously irritated. I just shrugged, I really didn't feel like a car ride with Miley annoyed with me.
I wanted to leave, so I started walking toward the door. Lilly followed me out and Miley was behind us. She groaned. Well too late for her not to be annoyed.
We walked down the short hallway to the back exit. As soon as I opened the door I regretted it. I was blinded by flashing lights. Damn paparazzi!
"Jackson, are you and Hannah still going out?"
"Was your break up a lie?"
"Is there still a Jacksannah?"
"No, like I said before, Hannah and I are just friends!"
"I'm not kidding! I have a girlfriend!" I lied.
"Sure, ya think we're gonna fall for that one again!" Stupid Prince William!
"It's the truth!" I yelled. This was horrible. It was so old! I couldn't take it anymore.
I did the only thing I could think of. I turned around to see Lilly still behind me. I held her waist and pulled her toward me. She looked shocked, well, until I crashed my lips on hers and the lights started flashing again. And I was kissing Lilly Truscott.
