"Sam! You in there." Echoed John's voice.

"John?" Sam questioned fixing her hair. She tried to get up, but failed.

"Yah, it's me. Can we talk?"

"Of course. What's up?"

"I meant, can I come in."


"It's really important."

"One minute!" Sam looked around at the results of the volcano that had just erupted.

"Hide!" Sam whispered.

"Are you kidding me?" Emily whispered as she managed to sit up.


"Where?" Maxie asked as she looked around the room.

"There's a closet." Sam said as if it were obvious.

"And there's about 12 of us." Kristina whispered as she glared at the small closet.

"Please Guys!" Sam whispered with puppy dog eyes as she held her head.

"I guess, we will try. But you owe us!" Patrick murmured as he opened the closet.

"Thank you." Sam whispered as Jason helped her up.

Everyone started awkwardly getting in the closet. A few hid under the bed instead. At the end, the room was spotless. Except for Carly, Jason, and Sam.

"Carly, you have to hide." Sam muttered.

"No. Maybe you should ask Todd to hide. Since you two are so friendly." Carly responded stubbornly crossing her arms.

"Jason. Make her hide."

"Everything okay in there?" Sam heard John call.

"Yah. I'll be there in a second!" Sam replied, while Jason rolled his eyes.









"JASON!" Both ladies shouted glaring at him as if he would solve everything.

"Carly. Do it for me." Jason pleaded with the blonde.

"Fine. Only since You asked." Carly gave in as she crawled under the bed, next to Patrick, Maxie, AJ, and Lucky.

"Thank you so much. You are great Jason." Sam said giving him a quick hug.

"You feel alright." Jason asked noticing she was still a bit weary.

"I'm fine. All thanks to you." She said with a smile before adding "Now Hide!"

Jason sighed before crawling in the closet with the others.

Sam looked in the mirror one last time before opening the door.

"Hi." She chirped with a bright smile.

"Hey." John responded, before adding, "Can I come in?"

"Of course." Sam said moving over so he could squeeze through.

"Thanks. So what I wanted to talk to you about was...well I thought you should know that..." John said struggling for words. He sat down on the bed that everyone hid under.

"What? You know you can tell me." Sam said with a reassuring smile.

"Listen, I feel like I may be...interrupting something."

"What! NO! Nothing was going on. Just me. And my pillow. Yep." Sam said frantically.

"Um, no I'm talking about you, and Jason."


Jason listened carefully, as if his life depended on it.

"Me and Jason?" Sam asked.

"Yah. I mean you two...you seem close. Like boyfriend, girlfriend close." John replied.

Jason smiled at this. But, his smile faded when he heard Sam's words.

"NO! Are you kidding me. Me and Jason? There is no me and Jason. He's just a childhood friend. He's like a brother to me. Nowhere close in the term of boyfriend. Trust me. He is as close to me as Maxie, or Robin. Just a friend, nothing more."

"Oh. That's great to hear." John said.

Jason felt like his heart had just been stomped on repeatedly. She had basically just called him Maxie!MAXIE! He felt stiff. Suddenly, he couldn't hear Sam or John. All he heard was his heart race, with anger and regret. He had always worried this was how Sam though of him, but to hear her say it was a whole different story. He tried to focus on what they were saying, but he didn't hear anything. In fact, they weren't talking anymore.

He looked through the slit of the closet to see that Sam and John were, in fact, kissing. He felt his heart drop. He wanted to so badly to stomp out of the closet and punch John repeatedly. Or maybe scream in rage. But instead he just sat and watch, the love of his life, make the biggest mistake ever.

Gladly, he didn't need to interrupt though. Someone from under the bed that sounded like Carly yelled."KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF YOU PERV!"

Sam and John jumped at this. "What was that?" John questioned getting up.

"Probably the people next door." Sam covered.

"No, that sounded like it came from here." John said looking around.

"Trust me. It's just you and me." Sam said reassuringly.

"Okay." John replied before sitting back down. Him and Sam were about to kiss, when Emily sneezed, from next to Jason.

"Okay, that had to have come from some where in here." John said quickly jumping up and looking around, once again.

"Calm down, you're overreac-"

"OWWWWWW!" Screamed someone from under the bed after a loud bang.

"What was-"

"MOUSE!" Sam screamed.

"Mouse don't scream in pain." John protested.

"These mouse do. They're vicious. They eat flesh. You know what you should go before they get you. Run!" Sam said pushing John towards the door.

"Okay, I'll see you later." John said looking over Sam's shoulder suspiciously.

"See ya, bye!" Sam said slamming the door closed. Once she was sure he was gone, she sighed with relief.

"You can come out now!" Sam muttered with a sigh.

Everyone burst out the closet and jumped out from under the bed as if their life depended on it.

"You owe us, BIG TIME!" Carly said, "Mostly me!" she added.

"Carly, if it makes you feel better, I am sorry" Sam mumbled, still holding her head.

"It's going to take a lot more than, sorry" Carly replied simply.

"What if someone were to send you that video of AJ choking to be posted on YouTube" Sam proposed.

"What am I saying, I can't stay mad at you! So, where is this video you speak of?" Everyone started to talk except for Jason who slipped out of the room, just in time to bump into Elizabeth.

"Sorry." Jason muttered.

"It's okay. Wow, we haven't seen each other much. I don't think you're in any of my classes." Elizabeth rambled.

"Actually, We have Gym, Chemistry, and Algebra together." Jason said with a smile as they started walking down the hall. Since Elizabeth and Emily were best friends Elizabeth spent a lot of time with the Quatermaines and was very close with Jason.

"Oh yah. You're the one that got a free...haircut." Elizabeth giggled.

"I could hook you up with my guy if you want one." Jason joked.

"Well, me and your guy don't get along very well." Elizabeth said as they reached her room.

"Really? I thought you and Sam were friends." Jason said shocked, as she opened the door.

"Were. Lets just say a boy got in between us." Elizabeth explained as they walked in. "Anyway, are you okay, You seem a bit fed up?"

"I'm fine. It's just..." Jason let his voice trail off as he sat down.

"Come on Jase, what's up? " Elizabeth said sitting next to him.

"It's Sam." He said simply.

"Oh no. Are you guys fighting? You made such a cute couple." Elizabeth asked putting a hand on his shoulder.

"We aren't a couple. And apparently we never were. But you know what. Lets not talk about Sam. Lets talk about us." Jason said angrily.

"Us?" Elizabeth questioned right before Jason kissed her. Instead of pulling away, she went along with it. Just then the door opened. They pulled apart to see Robin standing there.

"What are you guys doing!" She asked shocked, at the sight of her roommate kissing her sisters...well lets just call it boyfriend.

"Kissing." Jason said simply, before diving in for another one. This time Elizabeth pulled away.

"Jason, stop." She said looking from him to Robin.

"Why? It's not like I'm in a relationship. It's not like I've been a relationship for the past 17 years. You heard Sam, I'm like a brother to her." Jason yelled getting up.

"Jason, Sam didn't mean it-" Robin tried but he cut her off.

"No! Don't make excuses for her. You know what for all I care, Sam and John can go get married. I'm done fantasizing about her." Jason said before pushing past the two and storming down the hall.

"I'm so sorry Robin, I... I didn't know what happened between him and Sam, he just seemed really angry, should I go talk to him?" Elizabeth offered.

"No, he just needs some space. He heard Sam basically call him her brother, and I guess it hit him hard since he... cares about her so much" Robin explained.

"Oh" Elizabeth said simply.

"Hopefully he'll cool down before he does something stupid"
