“We’re in Miami, bitches!” Jordan exclaimed once they stepped off of the plane and into the Floridian sun.
“It’s so pretty!” Ashley said as she scanned the palm trees in the distance. She was holding Jordan’s hand as they walked down the plane’s stairs.
“And hot! It’s gotta be like 100 degrees out here!” Lauren said as her and Tyler walked out next.
“Not quite,” TK chuckled, “More like 80. You’re just used to the freezing cold up north.”
“If you say so.” Lauren laughed.
Max came out next, followed by Emily, Geno, and Leah. “Time to par-tay the day away!” He shouted enthusiastically.
“Don’t par-tay too hard,” Sidney interjected, “We all gotta be our best for the game tomorrow.”
“Leave it to El Capitan to crush our party high!” Jordan gave a teasing death glare to their captain.
“He’s right, though, Jordy.” Mario pointed out, “You boys can have a good time on this trip, but the main reason you’re here is to play your game.”
“We hear ya, Mario.” Tyler assured him. He had his arm around Lauren and a smile was on his face. Mario chuckled to himself and placed his hands on Emily’s and Ashlen’s shoulders.
“You girls keep them in line. Can’t trust a word out of their mouths.” He laughed.
“Will do.” Ashlen promised, throwing a wink over at Sid as she did so.
They were all at the hotel they would be staying at while in Miami now. They were finding out where their rooms would be and who they’d be rooming with. Technically, the girls weren’t allowed to sleep in the same room as any of the guys, but there was a good chance that rule would end up being broken. The girls’ supposed arrangements had Lauren and Leah in one room and Emily, Ashley, and Ashlen in another. In the same hallway was Jordan and Tyler, Geno and Max, Sidney and Marc-Andre, Eric and Chris, and Kris and Philippe. The rest of the guys were either a floor up or down from the rest of them.
“Dudes,” Jordan announced to the whole team while they were mostly still in the lobby, “Massive pool party in 10 minutes!”
“Race ya to our rooms?” Ashley challenged him with a smirk on her peppy face.
“Oh, it’s on!” Jordy shot back and the two of them took off, Ashley urging the elevator to hurry up while Jordan went for the stair case. Note, they had to carry their luggage with them to the 7th floor. As long as no one stopped the elevator for any reason, there was a good chance Ash would take the win.
“How adorable are they?” Ashlen laughed, leaning on Sidney.
He chuckled, “If by adorable you mean crazy hyper and slightly insane, then very.”
“Ha, I guess that’s what happens when they get the extra hours of sleep the whole plane ride.” Ash shrugged.
“Must be. But no amount of sleep could top our kickass Socom skills.” Sid added with a smile.
“No doubt about that. We make a great team.” Ashlen said, looking up into Sid’s eyes.
“We sure do.” He agreed. They’re faces got closer until their lips finally met. They were both smiling when they separated.
“So, you wanna crash Jordy’s pool party?” Ashlen asked him, lacing their fingers together as they walked towards the elevator to head upstairs.
“As long as I’m with you, I’ll do anything.” Sid said and Ashlen smiled.
“I’ll take that as a yes.”
“Looks like we’re roomies, eh Geno?” Max smiled friendlily at him. Geno nodded back at him.
“Yup.” He said simply. His attention was more towards Emily than anything else. Though she looked a bit tired and slightly unkempt from the flight, through his eyes she looked like a goddess who only got more beautiful the more he stared at her.
Emily half smiled up at him. “You wanna go out to the pool or something?” She asked, not sounding totally thrilled to be there.
“Yeah.” Evgeni replied, nodding his head and smiling at her.
“Hey guys,” Max suddenly cut in, holding up a light blue colored flyer, which he got from the front desk, with bold black letters printed on the top, “Check this out.”
“Floridian Friday Fest.” Emily read aloud. “What’s that?”
“Well,” Max started to explain, “It says here that it’s a fun way to spend a Friday. They’ve got free food, fine art, fortune telling, funky music, face painting, fair rides, fireworks, and a bunch of other fun stuff that starts with the letter F.”
“How delightfully cheesy.” Emily chuckled at the corny sounding festival.
“I say we should check it out after the game tomorrow.” Max said, curious as to what it would be like.
“I’m in.” Geno shrugged, agreeing with Max. The two guys were both looking at Emily now with hopeful grins on their faces, as if she were the deciding vote on whether they’d be able to go or not. She smiled at them.
“Okay, count me in too.” She told them and their smiles grew.
“Saa-weet!” Max fist pumped elatedly. “Now let’s go party in the pool!”
