Author note: Sorry it's taken so long, I've had a lot on my mind recently. And sorry it's short; it's a bit of a filler chapter. Spoiler Alert: in the next Chapter there's a huge Channy moment and in a couple of chapters there's some singing. :D thanks for reading and I hope you like the story so far and please R&R.

Chapter 22

CPOV

Mom walked out of the kitchen to go and watch TV, which left me and Sonny alone AGAIN! I just stood there watching Lu and Tammy (who were sharing a bowl) eat there dinner. What is it with these awkward silences? It never used to be like this. As I was thinking about something to talk about, Portlyn skipped into the kitchen. "So, I worked out a competition to choose which movie we watch. Whoever convinces Brad to watch their movie, wins. So, get to work, if neither of you convince him in one and a half hours, Brad chooses a movie that me and him will like but you two will hate." My mouth hung open. I need to convince Brad to side with me? That's virtually IMPOSSIBLE! I'm gonna lose. I know it; I might as well give up now. Wait a minute; Chad Dylan Cooper never gives up on anything. I will win; I just need to do something I swore I would never do.

Okay, how do I get Brad to choose my film? He's properly gonna go with Chad 'cause 1. He's his brother and 2. He would most likely choose an action film rather than a chick flick. I'm gonna lose! But hold on a minute, Brad sometimes does the opposite to what Chad wants just to annoy him, so maybe he'll do that this time, but I still need to do something to convince him, just in case he doesn't. So, what am I going to do?

CPOV

"Would you like another Coffee Brad?" I cannot believe I'm doing this! Being Brad's servant, am I seriously doing this so that I can watch Fast and Furious, even though I've already watched it 3 times? No, I'm doing this to beat Sonny, just keep thinking that Chad, when I win I can rub it in her face. "Yes thank you Chad, and make it better than the last one, that tasted like dirty dishwater." I rolled my eyes; "Of course" Brad cleared his throat. I looked down to him, laying on the couch as if he were king. "Of course what?" I mumbled under my breath the word

"Sir." But I couldn't get out of it that easily.

"What was that?" he asked. A little louder, I said

"Of course Sir." He grinned like an idiot and signalled for me to leave with his hand. As I was leaving I glanced at Portlyn who was sitting in the armchair across the room, and I could tell she was trying really hard not to laugh. I just scowled at her and left the room. When I made Brad's last coffee I used the kettle, because I can't use the coffee machine. So once again I tried to use it, and once again it wouldn't work. I used some words that I don't think I should mention.

As I walked past the kitchen, I heard Chad say certain words that I never thought I would hear him say. Anyway, I had to get in the zone, I had to be the best actress ever now, because I had the hardest role ever, I had to convincingly flirt with Brad. (By the way, I'm like the world's worst flirt, even though the Random's think I flirt with Chad, but I don't see how, I just can't flirt.) I looked into the lounge and saw Brad laying on the sofa. Here's my chance come on Sonny, you can do this. I walked up behind the sofa and leant over it so that I was looking down on Brad and he was looking up at me. "Hey Brad." I said in my best flirty voice, while playing with my hair the way girls do when they flirt. He smiled slightly as he said "Hiya Sonny" In reply. I moved round the sofa so that I was sitting on the arm beside his head. "So whatcha doin?" I asked with a smile. "Just waiting for Chad to make me a half decent cup of coffee, what about you?" He answered. "Oh I'm just lonely and bored, upstairs all by myself." Then Chad came in with a cup of coffee on a tray and bent down so that Brad could take it of the tray. He took one sip, put the cup back on the tray, stood up and looked at me and Chad. "Okay then, it's been an hour and I can't last another half an hour. Chad, you're a crap servant and Sonny, your flirting might work on Chad but it don't work on me." Damn it!

CPOV

Great! We both failed, so now we've got to sit through a film that we will hate. "But, since I can't think of another film that I wanna watch and I've seen Fast and Furious loads of times, let's watch 27 Dresses." WHAT! He hates me! He truly hates me. "So, we'll start it in 15 minutes, so be here in 15 minutes, Chad." He said with a smile before heading upstairs. This is gonna be a long night.
