^That Morning-Getting Ready for Band Camp-About 3 Weeks Before School Starts^
‘Ryan! Get your ass moving or we’re going to be late!’
‘You know, I don’t get you Michael! You’re late for everything except anything that comes to band!’
‘Well that’s for me to know and you to figure out! I’ve never been late and I’m not going to be late this year! Hurry up! You should’ve packed last night!’
‘Now you have everything you need right?’
‘Yes mom, we have everything we need! You’ve asked us that about a million times.’
‘I just want to make sure you have everything and that you’re prepared honey. You never seem to pack much unlike your sisters.’
‘They pack...enough as it is. I should go upstairs and check how they’re doing.’ Max runs upstairs, into Lonnie and Isabel’s room.
‘You guys have everything. Wink Wink.’
‘Yep. Chips, Candy, Soda, Veggies, and other stuff.’
‘Maxie, just don’t get dehydrated like you did last year and get sent to the hospital.’
‘I won’t and also stop calling me that. It makes me sound like a “maxie” pad. Izzy did you say veggies? Because you’re scaring me.’
‘Yes I did. We need some *good* healthy food there.’
‘Okay. Well are you almost done packing because we need to get going.’
-Valenti/ DeLuca Household-
‘Maria! Get moving! We’re only going to be gone for 10 days, not 3 weeks.’
‘Well I need my comfy clothes, pjs, and casual.’
‘I shouldn’t have even opened my mouth, but you need to hurry up.’
‘Mom, Dad, do you guys have to go?’ All the Johnston children whine.
‘Yes, and that’s final.’
‘Alex, is camp fun?’
‘I don’t know...maybe because last year when you got home you complained for a week how much it sucked.’
‘That’s only because everything fell apart. Plus, I have something to look forward to this year.’ *evil grin*
‘What do you mean by that?’ Thomas asks a little scared.
‘We’re going to have so much fun this year!’
‘So what are you guys doing for freshman initiation this year?’
‘We have no idea, but this year you get to help us plan.’ Michelle and Gabby both laugh.
‘Yeah I get to help plan instead of being the one that’s being planned on.’ My sisters are evil.
‘Dad! Come one! You need to drop me off! Hurry up!’
‘I’m hurrying honey!’ My dad comes running down the stairs.
‘Finally! Come on! Lets get going!’ She’s already out the door.
‘The things I do for my daughter...’

^Bus Rides, Arriving, and Getting Dorms^
Well the luggage and instruments are loaded into the moving truck and now we are on comfy charter buses headed for band camp.
About an hour into the ride either everyone is A) sleeping/staring out the window, B) reading and doing honor’s work for english, or C) listening to their cd players and chatting about what they think is going to go on at camp. I’m sorta doing all 3. I’m half asleep while staring out the window and reading while also listening to Maria talk. That’s a lot to do at once especially, since Maria doesn’t shut up! “Okay Maria! Slow down.”
“I was saying that camp is going to be so much fun this year well...outside of all the work we’re going to be doing.”
“Yeah. I so can’t wait to do Freshman initiation.”
“Me too! That’s one of the best parts of camp chica!”
“Yep. I remember last year what happened to all of us.”
“Last year was horrible! They took all of my clothes when I was showering and my suitcase. I come out of the shower looking for my clothes and they were gone, so were my roommates. I go out the door to see if I see anyone and they shut the damn door behind me and I’m stuck in my towel, wet and cold, waiting for them to open the door!”
“That was funny as hell!” I’m laughing my ass off right now just reminiscing about that. “I-I can’t.....stop....laughing! My...stomach hurts!”
“You shouldn’t be laughing because I remember exactly what happened to you last year!
I stop laughing. That was not funny at all!
“I remember the look on your face though. That was hillarious!”
“It wasn’t funny. It’s not fun when someone switches your shaving cream with whip cream and then you’re all sticky for the day with bugs all over you! It sucked so badly, but at least we didn’t get as bad as Michael or Kyle!”
“Now those were funny!”
“Yes! They were!” Isabel interjects. I guess she’s been listening to our conversation.
“What they did to Michael was just cruel though.” I say. It was cruel, but funny.
“Pink is so Kyle’s color!”
We’re laughing so hard the seniors are staring at us, but I don’t care. Hey! I love living my band camp memories! “Remember Michael...he smelled so good that day!”
“Yes, but I think they should’ve made Kyle wear a lavender dress though instead of pink. Michael did smell good that day, but also they had switched his shampoo with honey!” Lonnie says. She’s now in the conversation with us.
After reminiscing some and a long bus ride we are finally at camp.
-ERAU campus; Prescott, Arizona-
“Okay everyone, we’re here. Now first, we’re going to get off and take you to the dorms. After, we’re unloading luggage and getting keys and rooms. Girls are upstairs and guys are downstairs. After getting dorms, we’re going to meet downstairs in the conference room and head to the gym. You’re going to follow me and Mr. Johnston there. We will unload equipment and instruments there. Now go.”
“God Mr. Ramirez talks forever!” Alex says to us.
“Oh I know.” Kyle says tiredly just waking up from the long bus trip.
“Did you not get any sleep the night before Valenti?” Michael asks.
“Like none. I’m so use to staying up all night during summer and now it’s that time of summer where you have to start getting back your body’s balance and get back on track.”
“O...kay.” We all say. Sometimes Kyle makes sense and then other times....he’s just somewhere out there and I mean....out there.
Well mostly everyone has gotten their dorms and now it’s my turn. For some reason I have a weird feeling about this year with the dorms and I have no idea why. Now it’s Whitman’s turn to get his dorm.
I go over to the table and get my key and room, but there’s something terribly wrong. What the fuck?! I go over to our band director.
“Mr. Ramirez! I’m in a girls’ dorm!”
“Stop joking around Whitman.”
“I’m serious!” I say. Oh God no! Mr. R goes over to the table and he’s talking to the people and he has a perplexed look on his face...uh oh...this can’t be good.
“I’m sorry Alex, but it looks like you’re going to be sharing a room with Michelle and Gabby Parker and Serena Johnston.”
I may be a junior, but...”All Seniors! They’re going to eat me alive and spit me out! Can’t you do something?!” Everyone’s laughing except the 3 evil girls I share a dorm with.
“We’re going to have soooo much fun Alex.” Serena says and winks at me. Then the evil Parker twins laugh and they all head upstairs to ~our~ room.
“I’m sorry Alex, but all the other guys’ rooms are full.”
Michael, Max, and Kyle are mocking me by pretending to paint their nails and gossip.
“Jebus! Help me!” I yell as I sluggishly drag myself and my luggage upstairs.

|Sorry it took so long to get a new part and hopefully I'll get some feedback for this part. |
I’m so freaked out right now. People think just because I’m related to Michael Guerin, it means that I’m a fearless, asshole like him, but I’m not. I’m as chicken as they come. The upper classmen keep giving me weird looks and then they start laughing. Michael has been laughing at me too, but also it’s band camp. I heard he’s totally different at band camp.
“Hello.” Thomas says to me trying to get my attention.
“Oh. Hey. Sorry.” I say coming back to reality.
“It’s okay. So what do you think of this place so far?”
“It’s okay I guess. I’m just a little freaked out at the fact that the upper classmen keeping looking at us like we’re their next conquest.” I say. As I look all around me.
“Yeah. Me too. Alex scared the shit out of me the other night.”
“We were talking and then he looked at me and started laughing his ass off. I asked him what the hell he was laughing about and he wouldn’t fricking tell me! It pissed me off and then all of a sudden he stops laughing and gives me this cryptic look. Then he tells me and I quote, “You better watch your back little bro because evil is coming,” then he left the room. The look he gave me after he said it scared me shitless. I couldn’t sleep because I was just thinking about what he said all night.” Thomas says.
“Well I think your brother is paying because he’s in a girls’ dorm with all Seniors and did you hear what Serena said to him. He’s going to be tortured.” I say as I start laughing.
“Yeah you’re right.”
“Shhh,” Michael says, “he’s talking.”
“Well now we’re going to go up to the gym and unload instruments and equipment. Now I want everyone to follow me and Mr. Johnston to the gym. Now Mr. Johnston wants to say a few things.”
“Now everyone, I don’t want any rough housing or anything while we’re unloading. Help out. Don’t just stand there. Now... fall out.”
“I hate unloading.” I say to Max. As I take some instruments and put them next to the wall.
“So do I, but think about it this way...It’s easier to unload then to load. You should know. You were there on Sunday when we had to load everything.”
“True, but at least I didn’t have to load the pit carts.” I say smiling.
“Lucky bitch. Those things are so heavy.” He says as he puts some more instruments down.
“Maxwell get over here and help with these carts!” Michael yells to him.
“I guess you talked a little too soon. Don’t drop the cart on your foot Max!” I yell to him as he starts walking to where Michael. Max has a nice ass...
“Are you thinking about my brother again Cathy?” Lonnie says as she comes up behind me.
“Oh my gosh you scared the shit out of me! Don’t do that! Maybe...”
“My gosh...” She says as she puts her hand to her forehead and shakes her head back and forth.
“Shut up and besides I only think Max has a nice ass. Anyway, Kyle’s more my type. Max is too brooding. I don’t know how Liz puts up with his broodiness so much. I can’t stand it.”
“Well it’s Liz, honey. Liz can be a little broody too sometimes. You should try living with Max. It’s horrible.”
“I wouldn’t be able to stand it! I don’t know how you and Isabel do it!”
“We like to fuck with his head a little...”
“I’ve heard all about how you guys torture him! Also with you and Izzy being twins it makes it worse.”
“Of course. I hate it when Mr. Ramirez got us all mixed up last year though. It’s so annoying! And I know he’s going to do it this year to piss us off.”
“Oh we all know that.”
“Also another thing...you’re going to be fighting over Kyle with certain people.”
“Who?” I say and she starts blushing a little. “Oh my gosh. You! You have a crush on..” That’s when she shuts my mouth.
“Shh! Shut up and it’s not just me and you.”
“I can’t believe you like him too. Who else?”
“Tess of course.”
“I don’t care if you two like him. He’s mine!”
“I don’t think so girlfriend! He’s mine!”
“This means war.” I say as we both give each other evil looks.
