Dec 22 -- Tampa Bay -- Nicky's (and Justin's) Cabin

Justin's POV

I just woke up and opened my eyes to the beautiful sight of my husband lying next to me.  I know I've done some horrible things to him in the past, but I'm going to do everything I can to make it up to him.  I love him, I love him with every fiber of my being and there's nothing nobody can say about it otherwise.

Today is the start of my new life, my life of putting Nicky above all other things.  It may sound out there, but I'm not going to do anything to ever hurt my angel again or at least I'm going to try not to.  He said we would sleep on it, but I know it deep down in my heart that he'll give me another...final chance to prove to him that I love him and will place no other before him.  I fucked up royally and now it's time I put things right, like they should be.

Looking over at the clock, I see that it's a little after seven in the morning.  In the past, one of us would've been up already in the kitchen cooking breakfast for the two of us .  Those were the good ole days.  I remember the last time we were here together, he was cooking some hash browns and bacon and he was trying to do too many things at one time and the bacon started to burn.  The kitchen was so smoky, that I thought he was burning the kitchen area down.  We actually went to town and had breakfast that day, but it's still a good memory of us being together.

"Morning baby," I say, leaning in and kissing him on the cheek as his eyes fluttered open and he smiled at me.  "How you feeling this morning?"

"I'd feel better if we were doing something fun," he says, smiling at me as I saw that noticeable glint in his eyes that could only mean one thing, my angel was horny and from the looks of things under the covers, his ready for action too.

"Us doing something fun is something to think about, but we can't do t hat right now.  We have guest here with us," I tell him as he sits up in bed and looks at me funny.

"We have guest?  Who's here besides you?"  He asks me as I sit up now too.

"Well Julie and AJ came here with me last night," I tell him as he raised an eyebrow at me.  "What?"

"AJ came here with you?  Last night?  Please tell me you two didn't fight.  When I last talked to him, he was ready to tear you limb from limb," he tells me as he ran his hand through his hair.

"Well we did fight, but Julie took care of him.  She beat his ass and he calmed down after beating on me," I tell him as his eyes went wide.

"Julie beat him up?  Damn, that girl got balls," he says, smiling as I pulled him over to me and kissed him on the neck.  "Baby you said we had guest here with us."

"We do baby," I say, kissing up around his ear now as he starts to squirm around a bit.  "I thought you wanted to have some fun.  Don't you want to have fun with me?"

"You know I do baby, but you said...oh God baby, you're turning me on," he says, moaning now as I started fondling his dick now.  "if you keep doing that, our guest will know what it is we're doing in here."

"And your point baby?"  I ask him as he moans again, this time grabbing my hand and holding it in the spot he wanted it in.  "Is that a sign that you like my hand there?"

"You know I like that baby," he says, breathing hard now as I rolled over in the bed and straddled his hips.

"I know of a whole lot of things you like," I tell him as he grins up at me as I lean down to kiss him.  "If I was naked right now, what would you do to me?"

"If you were naked right now, my dick would already be in your ass baby," he sexually growls at me.  "You're getting me hot Justin."

"So," I say, smiling at him as I started gyrating my hips on top of him.  "You could be fucking me right now until the sun goes down."

"Well we hope you save that until after we leave or something.  We don't want to hear that stuff.  It's too early in the freakin morning," Julie says as she and AJ were standing in the door.

"Look here you party crashers.  I'm with my husband right now.  You're interrupting important diplomatic matters right now," I say as Julie laughs at me and walks over to the bed.

"You act as if I've never seen you two go at it before.  Remember that time you two slept with..." she says as both of us held our hands up.

"Don't even go there girl.  We don't ever want you mentioning that again," Nicky tells her as she laughs again and shakes her head.

"Well he is your..." she says as I glare at her this time.  "Okay okay, I'm shutting up now."

"Good," I say, climbing off of Nicky and standing up next to the bed.  "I guess we can get up now since someone spoiled the mood."

"You spoiled the mood when you thought you were going to get away with having sex with people in the next room," Julie says as she turns around, bumping into AJ.  "Why are you in my face?"

"Damn girl, chill out or something.  You're starting to get on my nerves.  I'm getting tired of you being fucking rude to me," AJ says as Julie raised an eye at him.

"Why don't you two go ahead and fuck and get it over with," I say as she turns around in a hurry.  "Hell you might as well."

"Justin!"  She screams as I do my best to ignore her and help Nicky up.

"Girl stop acting like a fool and behave yourself," I tell her as she growls evilly and stomps out of the room.

"I don't know why she acting shy right now.  Any other time she'll be all over your ass like a cheap fur coat," I say as Nicky starts laughing and hugs me.

"You're not serious are you?"  AJ asks as I nod at him.  "If she likes me, why she acting like an evil bitch?"

"You know people that like other people act a fool when they like someone.  Just go out there and shoot the breeze with her while we get cleaned up," I tell him as he shakes his head.

"Ya'll just trying to go get your groove on is all," AJ says as he walks out of the room, leaving me and Nicky standing there holding on to each other.

"Come on baby, let's go grab a shower so we can leave," I tell him as he looks at me and then we walk to the bathroom.

That look tells me he's worried about something.  Maybe he's skeptical about us being back together.  I guess I'll have to show him that I really meant what I said.  I'll do anything to prove to him that I'll never ever place anyone above him again.

Orlando, FL -- The Hilton Hotel -- Joey and JC's Room


It looks to be the start of a beautiful day here in Orlando.  I was skeptical about staying here and was planning on going back to LA.  Now that I'm with Joe, my whole outlook on this town has changed somewhat.  Rolling over in bed and getting up, I see that Joe has already gotten up and left for the morning, with the indication of the note on his pillow.  Oh well, I guess I'll get on the ball too.  I wish he would have waken me up when he got up.  I would have loved kissing him some more before I started my day.  I'll just have to wait until we meet back here again.

The first thing on my agenda for the day is to go finish up the Christmas shopping for my friends and so-called family.  I know I shouldn't say that, but with all the stuff that has gone down with mom and dad, I don't feel the Christmas spirit like I use to.  I just can't get over the fact that they don't want me in their lives as long as I'm gay and dating Joey.  That's just fucking wrong and ignorant.  I'm not going to give up my love for Joe to make them happy.  If they can't get over their homophobic issues, then they'll just have to deal with not having me around.  I'm not going to change to make them happy, that would totally go against how they raised me.  They always taught me to be me, but when I be me, they want to change the fucking rules, no fucking way!

"Come on Josh, calm down.  It's too early in the morning to be getting upset with mom and dad again.  I'll just go shower and get ready.  Maybe shopping will take my mind off of all of this drama.  I'm just glad that Scoop's parents' didn't join in on things.  We would've never heard the end of it.  "Who could that be?"

Walking over to the door to see who it was, I grabbed my robe on the way and stopped in front of the door.  Looking through the peephole, I didn't see anyone in the hall.  Turning around to go back to the room to get my things, there was a knock again.

"Okay this isn't funny.  Who's there?"  I ask, going back to the door and looking through the peephole again, still not seeing anyone there.

Getting a little bit pissed, I opened the door to see a giant teddy bear standing face-to-face with me in the hallway.  Whoa, talk about things that are totally too big.  Smiling, I stepped closer to the bear and noticed that there was a card that read, `Open Me'.  Opening the card, I started laughing when I saw who it was from.  Doing my best to pick up the bear and get him into the room.  I was about to close the door when, it stopped on something.  Turning back around, there stood Joey with a whole lot of flowers in his hands.

"Good morning baby," he says, stepping closer to me and kissing me on the lips.

"I like the sound of that so much," I tell him as he smiled at me and kissed me again.

"I'm finished with the photo shoot.  Would you like to accompany me while I shop?"  He asks as I laugh at him at the way he was talking.

"Sure handsome, I don't see why not, I have to do the same thing," I say, grabbing his hand as he closed the door and waved at the bear.  "What possessed you to get that giant teddy bear?"

"You needed something to cheer you up.  I wanted to see you smile baby.  You cried last night and that made me feel bad.  I never want to see you cry or hurt.  So while I was working this morning, I saw the bear and thought he would cheer you up," he explains to me as he wraps his arms around me.

"Oh it cheered me up.  I'm not going to dwell on the negative things that happened yesterday.  I'm going to move on with my life and if they chose to cut me out completely, then that's what they'll do," I tell him as he frowns, but perks up when I lean in to kiss him.  "I love you Joe and nothing they or anyone will ever change that.  I'm just glad we found each other now."

"I'm glad we found each other too," he says as we go back into the bedroom and start stripping each other of our clothes.

Atlanta, GA -- The Home of Brian Littrell

Brian's POV

It's almost Christmas and I've yet to hear from Nick.  Did he get any of my messages inviting him to come spend Christmas with me, Leigh and Baylee?  I hope he did, I would rather him stay here with us, than to be with that damn husband of his.  I tried to tell him that Justin was no good for him, but he didn't believe me.  I wish he would have just taken the advice that we all tried to give him.  If he'd listen, he wouldn't be going through the crap he's going through with Justin now.  When Alex told me what was going on, I was so furious, but all the same I was happy.  Well not happy that Justin had done the things he did to Nick, but happy that he was screwing up and Nick was seeing things for the way they were.  Now that they are separated, I have a chance to get what should have been mine.

"Hey baby, you heard from Nick or any of the others yet?"  I ask, walking into the living room where Leigh was with Baylee and my brother Harold.

"No not yet, I don't think he's going to come.  I talked to Alex and he said that Nick was a little under the weather and wasn't in the mood for being around people," Leigh tells me as I sat down next to her and pull Baylee out of her lap.

"Hey there little ma, how you doing today?"  I ask, kissing Baylee on his forehead and rubbing his tummy as he started squirming around.

"Daddee tickles," he says, laughing now as Harold starts smiling at us.

"So did you all finish getting the things you needed to?"  I ask, motioning over to the Christmas tree as both Leigh and Harold nods their heads.

"Yep, I think we got it all," Harold says, pulling out a piece of paper from his pocket and handing it to me.  "I think we got everything and a little bit more."

"Sounds good to me," I say as the phone rings.   "I'll get it."

Getting up and walking out of the room with Baylee, I stop in the hallway to check the caller ID before I answered the phone.  Seeing that it was Kevin, I picked up the line and was surprised when it wasn't him but his bitch of a wife Kristin.

"Well hello Kris, what is it that you need today?"  I ask, not really wanting to talk to her.

"I called to talk to Leighanne.  Is she there right now?"  She asks me as I roll my eyes and walk back into the living room to hand Leigh the phone. 

"It's Kris," I say as Leigh smiles at me and starts talking as I walk back out of the room, heading outside to get some fresh air.

If I'd had my way, I would've been celebrating Christmas this year with Nick right now instead of being married to that bitch in there and stuck with a kid.  I don't know why in the hell I choose to get married.  I was told that when the heart is broken, it causes you to do stupid things.  Thinking back to the night I said yes to Leigh could be a perfect damn example of that saying.  I guess my heart told me to say `yes', because I know that wasn't the smartest thing I've done in my life, but oh well, it's too late now.  One day, I'll get what I want.  I want Nick Timberlake-Carter, but when I'm done, he'll be Nick Carter-Littrell.

Back in Orlando, FL -- JT Poole's House

"Miss Kitty get your narra ass back ova here!  Don't make me chase you with the broom you lil heffa!"  JT screamed, running around the kitchen as the cat ran around the table with something in her mouth that JT wanted.

"JT baby, what's going on in here?"  Lance asked, standing in the doorway to the kitchen as Miss Kitty noticed him, ran behind him and played the cat and mouse game with JT.

"Oh this heffa trying to be funny!"  JT screamed, moving back in forth in front of Lance as the cat kept dodging JT's grabbing hands.

"Baby what are you doing?"  Lance asked, stopping JT as the cat ran back into the kitchen, heading in the direction of the back door.

"That lil heffa stealing!  She has a mini-disc of some of the lyrics for some songs that Tri-Star Pictures© wants to use in one of their future productions," JT said, sounding out of breath.  "I'm going to kill her when I catch her.  Once I'm done, the world can say bye bye to Miss Kitty Vale!"

"Kitty Vale?"  Lance asked, looking at JT strangely, trying not to crack a smile.

"That's right Jamie, that's her full name, Miss Kitty Vale," JT stated as he sat down at the table.  "That lil vixen trying to ruin my life."

"JT baby just stay right there and rest a bit," Lance told him as he walked in the direction that the cat had gone.

"Talking bout Kitty Olympics, that lil bitch is gonna get hers when I get my hands on her.  I'm going to beat her like she owe me for back child support!"  JT shouted, getting up from the table and going over to the refrigerator to get a drink.  "Hours of work that could possibly be gone down the drain because of her lil ass!"

"Baby calm down," Lance said, walking back into the kitchen with Miss Kitty in his arms.  "Here baby."

"You!"  JT screamed, grabbing at the cat as Lance turned quickly, stopping him from getting her.

"Baby stop.  She didn't hurt the disc, it's still in it's case.  She just wanted to play with you.  Don't hurt her," Lance told him as he hold the cat in his arms and leaned in to kiss JT.  "She just wanted to have fun with her daddy."

"Did it look like I was having fun Jamie?"  JT asked him, glaring at him and the cat.  "That little heffa almost gave me a heart attack!"

"Baby calm down," Lance said again as he put Miss Kitty down on the floor and wrapped his arms around JT.  "Your disc is on the table and it seems to be in the condition it was before she got to it."

"That's not the point Jamie!"  JT shouted at him.  "I wasted almost an hour chasing her lil ass!  I have to get this done and to Tri Star by tonight.  If she hadn't been causing problems, I would have been fucking done already.  Now I got to spend more time getting this ready to go out.  She's lucky I don't pop a cap in her ass!"

"Baby why can't you calm down?  You act as if this is the first time the cat has done something like this," Lance stated as the doorbell rang.

"It is the first time the lil ho has done something like this," JT said as he sighed and walked out of the kitchen into the living room to answer the door.

"This is going to be a long afternoon," Lance said as he stood in the doorway to the kitchen while JT opened the door to be greeted by Mrs. Norris from across the street.

"Hello Mrs. Norris," JT said, stepping aside to let the little old lady in.  "What brings you by here this afternoon?"

"I was out with Brutus and I heard the commotion ova here," she said, popping JT on the arm.  "I know you two better not be arguin' in here so close to the holiday."

"We're not arguing Mrs. Norris," Lance said, walking over to JT and wrapping his arms around his waist.  "JT and Miss Kitty are the ones trying to have the knock out, drag out in here."

"Lawd, what did the cat do this time?"  Mrs. Norris asked, smiling at Lance as she patted him on the back.

"She took a disc with some of his work on it," Lance answered her as she turned to look at JT.  "If I hadn't stepped in, he probably would have murderized the lil kitty."

"The lil heffa needs to be murderized!"  JT shouted as Mrs. Norris popped him on the shoulder this time.

"Young man stop all of that racket!"  She screamed this time as Lance cracked a smile.  "Everyone in the neighborhood don't want to hear you screaming about Miss Kitty."

"Well tell them to cover their ears," he said, turning away from Mrs. Norris and walking towards the kitchen.  "I have a lot of work to catch up on thanks to the lil heffa.  I'm going to be in my office for a while.  Don't disturb me."

"Okay JT, if it means that much to you to get your work done, I guess I'll go hang out with some of the guys or something," Lance said as JT disappeared down the hall from the kitchen.

"Son don't leave him here alone.  Go down there and keep him company," Mrs. Norris said, smiling at Lance and motioning for him to follow JT.

"But you heard him say don't disturb him Mrs. Norris," Lance said, not moving from the spot he was in.

"Because his mouth said it, doesn't mean that's what his heart meant," Mrs. Norris said, pushing Lance in the direction JT went.  "Go on son, go down there and stay with him.  It's been a long while since he's had someone around for the holidays."

"I don't know Mrs. Norris, I don't want to make him mad or anything.  He's already pissed at the cat, I don't want him pissed with me again.  We just made up and I don't want to push us apart," Lance told her as she shook her head.

"Boy you heard what I said.  Now get," she said as she walked towards the door.  "Me and Brutus is going home.  You two have a good day together."

"You have a good day too Mrs. Norris," Lance told her as he sighed and walked down the hall to JT's home office.

The Sheraton Hotel -- In Justin's Room

Terrence's (Justin's Tour Manager) POV

Justin's been missing all night and morning and I have no fucking clue to where he is.  I don't know what the fuck is going on, but when I get my hands on him, I'm going to ream his ass for running out on his responsibilities the way he has.  I don't care if his mom is running things, that don't give him any reason to run out the way he has.  It's just a matter of time before he screws up big time and everything catches up to him.  When that happens, I bet Lynn won't be able to bail his ass out then.

"Has anyone seen Justin?"  I ask, walking around Justin's room, looking for any scrap of evidence to show where it was he went.

"I can't tell you," Rory, one of the dancers says as he walks away from me.

"Why can't you tell me?  If you know something, I suggest you tell me now or you're fired from this tour," I tell him as his eyes went big.

"You can't fire me; I'm one of Justin's best dancers!"  The young man shouts at me as I walk over to him and get in his face.

"I'm the tour manager damnit; I can do whatever the fuck I want.  You tell me where Justin is or you can get the fuck out of here and find your own way back to that dusty town you call a home!"  I exclaim, pushing him backwards now as some of the security guys came into the room to stop me.

"Terrence lay off man," Bruce, one of the security guards tells me as he stepped in front of me.  "Don't worry about Justin; he's gone to handle some important business."

"Handle some business?  He should be here handling business," I tell him as he shakes his head at me.

"No, what he's doing is more important than all of this," Bruce tells me, crossing his arms across his chest as Rory moved away from the two of us.

"Whatever Justin is doing right now isn't important as his career," I say, turning around to see where Rory had gone.

"Yes it is.  Again, don't worry about Justin," Bruce says, walking away from me and going back to his previous spot.

"You people are fucking crazy!  Justin's not here right now and all of your fucking careers ride on him being here to do his fucking job!  If he's not here to perform, then none of you get paid!"  I shout as no one acted as if they cared what I was saying.

"We're not crazy Terrence, we just know what's important to Justin and if you were anyone with half a fucking brain, you would know what was important to him too," Stephanie, another one of Justin's dancer's says as she turns around and flips me the bird and walks out.

"Fine, have it all your fucking way.  I'm going to sit around and laugh my heart out when Justin screws all of you over," I say as others in the room started filing out behind Stephanie.
