“yeah…” Ross said, looking out the car window.
“whats up bro?” Riker asked.
“I don’t know, Laura was acting kind of weird. She didn’t even kiss me goodbye” Ross said sadly.
“don’t sweat it bro, I’m sure everything is fine” he added.
“I hope” Ross explained.
When they got to the house, Ross was surprised to find his parents in the living room with a large envelop in their hands, Riker had a huge smile in his face.
“About time you got here!” Riker said excitedly.
“what is it?” Ross replied
“Justin was here. Justin Bieber was in our house” his mom said with a shocked face.
“And they were here to make you an invitation” his dad continued.
“A super awesome invitation that we already gladly took for you!” Rydel added
“Alright! What is it?” Ross asked, dying to know what it was.
Ross’s dad came closer and placed his hands in Ross’s shoulders, “You’re gonna be performing at this year’s Grammy awards!” he said.
Ross couldn’t believe what he was hearing. His eyes widened in shock, and his jaw dropped in disbelief. “What?” was all he managed to say.
“I am not kidding, Justin came here to tell us that he wants to perform his duet with you at the Grammy’s, Not For You, you start rehearsals next week!” his dad added.
“What? Whoah. ME? At the Grammy’s?” Ross asked in shock.
“Yeah, look at this” Rydel said showing him her iPhone. “Your song is number one on iTunes, it’s doing fantastic!”
“Yeah bro, and you’re super famous! Everyone wants to know about you, we got calls from Ellen, Oprah and Enews! They all want to meet you!” Riker told him excitedly.
“And you got so much fanmail” Rydel added.
“Plus your show in Disney is doing so well, breaking records in ratings!” his mom added.
~2 Weeks Later~
Ross new fame was something he was not used to. He was super busy ALL the time. He had to go from recording songs for his Disney show, to recording songs for his new album. When he wasn’t doing that, he was out rehearsing for his performance of “Not For You” for the Grammy’s with Justin, doing interviews in T.V shows, or promoting his newest single with Justin. Everywhere he went he got hounded by paparazzi and fans, to the point where it was almost impossible for him to go anywhere without being recognized.
Ross had become in an overnight superstar. Even receiving calls from artists Usher, Pitbull and other famous singers for possible collaborations. His fanbase was increasing at such an incredible speed where it was almost impossible for Ross to handle.
As for Rocky, things hadn’t gotten any better. He was spending most of his time in his room, avoiding all possible contact with Ross. Bella, Raini, Zendaya, and Cody did not do much during this time, but their sudden lack of interest is exactly what made them dangerous.
“Whoah, I got tackled by so many fans today.. IT WAS AWESOME!” Ross exclaimed, getting in the car with Riker.
“haha man, I bet” Riker said.
“It was crazy! They ripped off my shirt! They were all like ‘you’re so hot’ and stuff, insane! Some girl took my socks” Ross added.
“Yup. You’re getting so big. You’re everywhere!” Riker said, feeling happy for his brother.
“I know! I’m gonna hang with Laura now for like 30 minutes, and then Justin is picking me up so we can rehearse. This performance at the Grammy’s is gonna be sick! And Selena said I was cute, can you believe that?” Ross said, smiling.
“Yup. Um…too bad you couldn’t make it to our rehearsal yesterday” Riker said, showing a little sadness in his voice. “For the 7th time” he added under his breath.
“Oh bro, I’m sorry, it’s just I’ve been so busy! Haven’t had time for things like that anymore” he told him.
“Yeah, I understand Ross, don’t worry” Riker responded, faking a smile for his brother. He pulled up to the curb and stopped, “alright man”
“thanks bro!” Ross said, getting off the car quickly.
Ross ran to Laura’s house, the second he knock, the door flung open. He met her with a hug, picking her up and circling her in the air as he met her with a kiss. “Laura!”
“Ross!” she said happily, hugging her boyfriend. “Whoah, you look good” she said, licking her lips as she checked him out.
“ha, thanks. This is for the rehearsal” he said. “I gotta go soon, Justin sent over some people to pick me up”
“Oh, so you’re leaving soon?” she added, sadly.
“Yes, I’m sorry” he said, putting his hand on her cheek. “I have to”
“No, it’s fine” she said, trying to pretend not to be sad. “I’m just glad you’re here now. It’s just that, well, I haven’t seen you in a while. We don’t get to spend much time together anymore”
“Oh babe I know, but that’s just while I finish this promo stuff and the rehearsal for the grammy’s, once that’s over everything will calm down a bit, I’ll only have the album, oh and we’ll start filming Austin and Ally so we’ll definitely get to spend time together”
“I guess…” she said. “but now that you mention that, there’s something that you owe me” she said, bringing the phone.
“What? Anything.” He said, giving her a smile.
“Call Raini. Schedule the date. So that you can tell her you like her as a friend and we can settle everything” she told him.
Ross rolled his eyes, and put his hands on his hair, feeling frustrated. “But…” he said.
“No buts. Please?” she added. “We need to solve this before we start shooting the show” she said, giving her a puppy eye look.
“Fine. Whatever. Just to get it over with.” He said picking up the phone. He dialed her number and waited for it to ring.
“Hello?” Raini answered. “Who’s this?” she asked.
“Um, this is Ross…” Ross replied.
“oh my gosh? Really? Ross? What? Why are you calling me?” she asked in confusion, squealing a little bit in excitement.
"um..." Ross said, not very interested. The very sound of her voice creeped him out, bringing terrible memories back to him.
"you're voice sounds so hot over the phone" Raini said outloud, pretty much fangirling.
Ross rolled his eyes slightly... “I wanted to ask you…” Ross said, took a deep breath and rolled his eyes, “if you wanted to go out with me sometime, you know, so we could talk” Ross added really quickly.
“Maybe you can go to her house, so it’s more comfortable” Laura whispered, smiling excitedly.
“Oh my god, Ross? WHAT? Is this real life? Sure sure YES! Oh my god, when? I’m shaking Ross, thank you thank you thank you” Raini said almost losing her breath.
“How about tomorrow night” Ross said in a bored tone.
“Yes, where? Oh my god, you’re so hot Ross, thank you” she said, almost crying.
“her house!” Laura whispered.
“No! Anywhere but her house!” Ross whispered back to her. ‘Is she crazy? I can’t go to Raini’s house, I don’t wanna get raped.’ Ross thought to himself.
“We’ll do it somewhere really really really public with lots of people, you know, so…things don’t get out of control” Ross told her.
“Yes! Anywhere!” Raini said overly excited.
“Alright. I’ll pick you up tomorrow night.” Ross said in an annoyed tone. “be ready.”
“Yes Ross! I WILL BE! I’m gonna buy new clothes and everything, I’m so excited. You don’t know how much this means to me! I love you!” Raini exclaimed.
“This isn’t a date Raini. This is two friends having dinner, alright?” he clarified.
“Yes, of course.” She added.
“Alright. Bye.” He told her.
“No, don’t go” Raini added. But Ross had already hung up.
“Can’t believe you’re making me do this Laura. She’s a wacko!” Ross told Laura.
“She’s our friend! It means a lot to me because I want her to be my friend again.” Laura argued.
“Whatever. But she’s lucky, she doesn’t even deserve a date from me. I’m too much for her” he said smiling.
“too much for her?” Laura added, giving her a look. “What’s that supposed to mean Ross Shor Lynch” she asked seriously, raising one eyebrow.
“That sounded harsh, that’s not what I meant.” Ross said biting his lip.
“But that’s what you thought.” Laura said menacingly. Then a honk was heard outside, Ross’s ride had arrived. A super long fancy limousine.
“Bye Laura” he said, giving her a kiss on the cheek. “I gotta go” he added.
But what Ross didn’t know is that the call he had just made was probably one of the worst decisions of his life.
