And that was the end of their Hanson encounters until they reached Perth two days later. It was after the show and the girls headed out to a bar to spend a bit of time talking, and watching each other get drunk. Well, ok, they all just wanted to experience Shelley and Becc drunk in the flesh, rather than over MSN. It was there that Cyndi had her next encounter with Zac, and the rest of them had their first real encounters with him and Isaac.
They were sitting at a table talking when in walked 2 guys, who all the skanky girls seemed to instantly attach themselves to. The 10 or so girls sitting together, took note of who it was that had just entered, and also their displeasure at the girls that were now around them. After a few minutes, Cyndi decided she would go and save Zac, and also help her friends to get acquianted with Ike.
"Hey Zac, how's it going?" Cyndi asked, as she walked up next to him.
"What are you, following me around the country?" He asked her.
"Haha, you'd think that wouldn't you." She laughed nervously, looking around the room.
"You would, wouldn't you, well it's good to see you again." He smiled, happy that the other girls seemed to be disappearing now that Cyndi had appeared.
"Listen, did you want to come and join me and my friends? We're just sitting talking, and laughing at Shelley being drunk."
"Sounds fun." He said, motioning to Ike and walking over to the table with Cyndi, Ike soon followed, happy to be free of the girl that had attached herself to him.
The other girls at the table really didn't seem to see the point of Zac and Cyndi actually being there with them since they seemed to pay no attention to anyone but each other.
"See what Cyndi said about being made for each other." Kate laughed to Heidi who was sitting next to her. Cyndi only just heard the comment and kicked Kate under the table. At least she thought it was Kate.
"OW!" Isaac screamed in pain. "Who kicked me?" He yelled, interrupting his conversation with Liz and Kirsty, from where they had been talking about guitars. "Zac? Why did you kick me?"
"I didn't kick you, you idiot? Why would I kick you?"
"Oh, I don't know, because you're annoying?" Ike said, getting annoyed. "I'm going back to the hotel." He mumbled, before saying goodbye and leaving.
"I better go after him, well at this rate, I might see you around." Zac smiled, before following after Ike.
"You had to make that comment Kate, now they're both gone!" Cyndi said annoyed.
"You had to kick Ike, we were finally getting our plan into action, and you had to go and kick him!" Liz said, half joking, half angry at Cyndi.
"Guys, don't argue. It's so obvious that Zac is crushing on her, we just have to run into them again and we'll be fine!" Aimi laughed.
"Oh, see I like that plan!" Kirsty smiled.
"Yeah, the rest of us might get to talk to them a bit this time." Kate smirked.
"We can't help that Ike liked us more." Liz laughed, sticking her tongue out at Kate.
"I say it's a trip to the pub in Adelaide, and hopefully this time Tay will be with them as well!" Jane added as they stood up getting ready to leave.
"I'd say this has been a pretty eventful trip so far, let's see what else can happen."
The girls got to Adelaide the next day early enough to get a good spot in the line, so they queued outside the venue during the day in hope of getting their first front row of the tour. They got inside and made sure that they were all together at the front, on Zac's side of the stage, it wasn't long until the support and then the main act.
"I wonder if they'll recognise us from last night." Shelley commented as they stood talking.
"We told Ike we were going to be here and to look out for us." Kirsty laughed.
"You told him?" Cyndi asked, getting a little nervous.
"Don't worry he promised not to tell Zac, cos it was obvious you hadn't told him why we were in the same places as him." Liz told her, trying to calm her down.
"But now he's going to think I'm a freaky groupie." Cyndi said, starting to freak.
"Cyndi, he won't. It's ok. Calm down." Kate said, rolling her eyes as the support act came on.
About halfway through Hanson's set, Ike looked over at them and smiled. He half nodded his head at them and then kept looking around the room. Then Zac looked in their direction and spotted Cyndi. Well they assume that's what he spotted, cos he kept looking at them for about 2 songs, before finally looking somewhere else. While the others couldn't wait to hopefully run into them at a bar, Cyndi was slightly apprehensive, scared of what Zac might say.
She needn't have worried as they happened to find the right pub and run into them again.
"So it seems you are actually following my ass around the country?"
"Yeah, so it does. Ok, let's face the facts, I'm a groupie, what can I say?" Cyndi laughed nervously. Zac hinted the nervousness in her voice and laughed.
"Don't be worried, I'm not scared of you now or something. If you're into the music that's cool. Besides, Tay's wife used to be somewhat of a groupie, I'm predestined to be with one." He winked at her. She knew this was wrong, he had a girlfriend, but she couldn't help flirting with him. It was then that Shelley decided this was no time to be shy. She strode over to where they were chatting and casually joined in the conversation. Cyndi was startled by the forwardness that Shelley had shown, and started to get scared. This was going to turn all the Squishies against one another, as they got in with their favourite band, and tried to get their hands on one another. On the other side of the room, Kirsty, Kate, Liz, Bella and Aimi were all crowded round Ike, trying to talk to him. Liz had had enough of them all, herself included, trying to outshine the others and make an impression on Isaac, so she went for a walk outside. She soon realised she was being followed as a person called to her.
“Liz, wait up.” Ike called, as she stopped in her tracks and turned to face him. “Where are you going?”
“Just had to get out of there for a bit.” She smiled as she sat down on a bench.
“I know what you mean, I was starting to feel a bit clustered in there, so many people crowded around me, and then all these other girls came over and attached themselves to me as well.” Ike said, sitting down next to her, and looking around. “Sometimes I just wish I was a normal guy, living a normal life, but then I’d miss the music too much.”
“I wish I could do what you do every day.” Liz said, staring at the ground.
“Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do, but there’s all these people who want to associate with me, just because I’m Isaac Hanson, or because I’m Taylor Hanson’s brother.” He said rolling his eyes. “Even half of my girlfriend’s have been like that. It’s like it’s not enough that I was the one that got hit with the ugly stick, someone had to rub it in more by giving me a string of cheating and bitchy girlfriends.”
“I think you need to get your head checked if you think you’ve been hit with the ugly stick.” Liz said, going red, realising what she’d just said.
“Hey guys, what’s going on?” Kirsty asked, bouncing out of the pub with Heidi.
“Just chatting,” Ike said, smiling. “See what I mean.” He added to Liz, rolling his eyes.
“No actually Ike, I don’t see what you mean. I think you’re just a bit paranoid.” Liz said, as she stood up from her spot and wandered back towards the pub.
And finally, part FIVE!------------
Two days later and they found themselves in Melbourne. This time they lingered at the back of the venue, too lazy to line up all day on what was a fairly cold day, and Shelley dragged them all sightseeing. Nothing much had been said about 2 nights before, and what went on, most of them hoping more to forget how much they drank, and how sick they felt the next day. The truth was, half of them didn’t even remember what had happened. So at the back of the venue they stayed, happy to watch from afar this time. They had no plans to go out that night, more inclined to go back to the ‘Squishy House’ aka Liz and Kirsty’s place to sit and chill, and maybe get some sleep. Considering they hadn’t had much yet, this sounded very good to all of them, and they had an earlyish flight to Sydney the next day.
They woke up early to go to the airport. They were checking in when Kirsty heard some familiar voices behind them.
“Still following us then?” Zac laughed. “I’d have thought you’d have all gone home by now.”
“I am going home.” Cyndi smirked at him, as she turned back to talking to Kate.
“Ahh, well my bad. What about the rest of you?”
“I’m going to visit my family.” Liz said, laughing.
“We’re going to visit Cyndi.” Heidi laughed.
“Yeah, we stopped following you a long time ago, we were just going and visiting our friends.” Kate added.
“Oh right, I see. Visiting friends, that’s what it’s called now? Not stalking my ass around the country?”
“Yes, we’re visiting friends. Got a problem with that Zac?”
“Hey if you can’t confess that you’re all obsessed with me it’s your problem not mine.”
“Oh yes, gorgeous Zac, we love you so much, you are our sex God, please, please do us now! Immediately.” Kate laughed, rolling her eyes.
“Hey, I wouldn’t say no.” Shelley said quietly.
“Me either.” Liz answered her.
“Well then, there’s closet over there, you coming?” Zac said, grabbing Kate’s hand and pulling her. Kate’s face turned to one of pure shock before Zac burst out laughing and almost fell over. “What did you think I was going to do? Haven’t you heard, I’m the good one.” Zac winked.
“Zac, are you harassing the locals?” Taylor asked walking over towards them.
“Oh, Tay, you haven’t met mine and Ike’s pub friends.”
“Your pub friends? Oh, those girls you kept running into at the bars?”
“Yeah, them. Tay, this is Cyndi, Shelley, Liz, Kate, uh, man I can’t remember all the names. I never was good with names.”
“Hi, I’m Jane.”
“And I’m Becc!” They both jumped forward towards Tay.
“Hey, You’re the one with the cool t-shirts!” Tay said, looking at Becc intently.
“Ah, yeah I am.” Becc said, backing away slightly, scared of the last encounter she’d had with Taylor.
“Wicked!” Tay said looking very excited, everyone looking at him funny. “What? Have I got something on my face?” He said, suddenly very worried.
“Oi! You two, come on! We have to check in!” Isaac called over to them, half smiling and then looking away.
“What’s up with him?”
“I said something the other night I don’t think he liked.” Liz said, looking the other direction.
“Ah, so he’s just being a prat? Nothing new there. Bye girls.” Zac said walking off with Tay.
hopefully, that was the end to those creepy stories lol.
