Getting to the hotel proved to be far less of a hassle than the ordeal at the airport. They all checked in and found their way to their rooms, without a problem.
Maybe this trip will be ok after all. I still feel bad for the guys that lost their luggage, but so far, my summer is going perfectly. The only thing I wish I could do is share a bed with my man. Although no matter what I did this summer, I wouldn't be able to. Guess I'll have to do it the old fashion way, sneak past Val's room for a midnight visit.
"This is so cool!" Tamara yelled excitedly. "Everything looks so, so…"
"Irish." Jenna finished her sentence.
"Exactly!" Tamara freaked out, falling back on her bed. "This is going to be so awesome! I wonder when we're going to Blarney Castle."
"Val said we're starting our site-seeing tomorrow." Jenna said, sitting on her own bed. "Which gives us the rest of today to do whatever we want."
"O-M-G you guys!" Ming came running out of the bathroom. "Our bathroom has a balcony."
All three girls ran into the bathroom, straight to the balcony door.
"Awe, it's got one of those cute little tables." Tamara said, sitting on one of the fancy patio chairs.
"The view is incredible." Ming stood against the railing on the balcony.
When Jenna joined her, she looked over to see that the boys had found theirs. There was only one room separating them, and she knew exactly who it was.
"J-dog, isn't this great?" Val asked, taking a sip of her coffee while she sat on her own balcony.
"Just great." Jenna said. That's when she noticed Matty and Jake staring at them. She had to get rid of Val. "Where'd you get the coffee?"
"Room service. You know I just love ordering room service while I'm on vacation. It just makes me feel so fancy." Val replied.
"You know what would go great with that coffee, some authentic Irish soda bread." Jenna said, knowing that would be the thing to get rid of her.
"You're absolutely right. I think I'll go order some." Val left to go back into her room.
As soon as Val left, both the boys and the girls stood against the edges of their balconies, trying to be as close to each other as possible.
"Hey boys!" Tamara yelled playfully over to the boys.
"Hey!" Jake yelled back.
Matty waved and gave his usual smile.
"Are you guys enjoying the view?" Tamara laughed, giving the boys a twirl.
"Yeah, but the distance doesn't do it justice." Matty smiled. "I wish I had a close-up."
"I think that can be arranged." Jenna yelled playfully. She eyed Ming and Tamara, who knew she had a plan up her sleeve. "Meet us in the lobby in 5."
The girls ran back into their room laughing and giggling. The boys high-fived each other and play wrestled, knowing today was going to be a good day.
"Hey J-dog, thanks for the suggestion. There's just something about drinking authentic Irish coffee and eating authentic Irish soda bread to make it official that you're in Ireland." Val said, carrying her food back out to the balcony.
When she looked up, she saw that the girls were gone.
"And I'm talking to myself." She continued. "Oh well, now I get to enjoy my Irish delicacies in peace."
The girls were waiting for the boys in the lobby when they saw Sadie and Lissa storm right over to the front desk and start bitching. And, being the typical teenagers that they were, they eavesdropped on the conversation.
"There has to be some mistake!" Sadie shouted.
"What seems to be the problem young lady?" The nice Irish man at the front desk asked.
"I'll tell you the problem!" Sadie freaked out. "My boyfriend is rooming with the guy who he cheated on me with! You have to fix this!"
The man gave her a very weird look. "First I'd like to apologize for him cheating on you. And I'm also saying sorry because I can't help you."
"What do you mean you can't help me?" Sadie demanded. "Isn't that your job?"
"I suggest you talk to the leader of your group you're with. I'm sure they'll be able to help your rooming situation." The man replied.
"Thanks for nothing!" Sadie yelled.
The girls stormed back upstairs, not noticing that their three sworn enemies were just witness to the entire situation.
"Did I just hear that correctly?" Ming asked.
Ok so whoever put Ricky in the same room as Clark obviously wasn't at the party. Or if they were, they did not see what me and T saw.
"Ricky and Clark are in the same room." Jenna said. "I feel bad for Clark."
"I know, poor guy." Tamara said. "But I do not feel bad for Sadie. That's what she gets for stealing my man. Although it did turn out to be a good thing since I ended up with the best guy on the whole damn planet. You were an idiot for giving him up."
I wasn't an idiot. I knew, and got, exactly what I wanted.
"Hey, don't call my girlfriend an idiot." Matty smiled, jumping over the lobby couch to sit with Jenna.
"Hey baby." Jenna leaned over and kissed him.
Just then, Jake scared the hell out of Tamara when he grabbed her cheeks from behind and pulled her head back to kiss her forehead.
"Did Juliet miss Romeo after he stupidly killed himself?" Tamara rhetorically asked.
Seeing her friends so happy with their boyfriends made Ming a little jealous.
"I miss Fred!" She complained.
"Awe, Ming." Tamara said. "We'll find you someone."
"Someone preferably that Becca doesn't know." Jenna added.
"But I don't want just anyone! I want Fred." Ming sighed.
This time, the boys spoke up.
"You need a guy that's going to make you forget all about Fred." Jake said.
"And you can't find him by sitting around the lobby doing nothing." Matty added. "And since we've arrived as promised, what did you girls have in mind?"
"I don't know about you, but that airplane food did nothing for me." Jenna said. "I could go for some lunch."
"Ooh, and shopping!" Tamara added.
"Well then ladies..." Jake extended his arm to Tamara.
"Let's hit the town!" Matty smiled, doing the same for Jenna.
Jenna and Tamara took Matty and Jake's arms and the five left the hotel, headed to a fun filled afternoon on the town.
