"...Nick? Hello? Earth to Nick... come in, Nick... Do you read?" Aaron joked, waving his hand in front his brother's face.
Nick had been staring across the room at his new wife, Brianna. He blinked and looked around at the others at the table with
"Wh-What? Sorry, I was just..." he trailed off.
"Yeah, we guessed, space cadet. Don't worry, man," said his bandmate, Brian, who was sitting next to him, "Shes only on
the other side of the room. You two have been attached at the hip since you got back from your honeymoon two months ago."
"I know..." Nick replied. He and Brianna had finally gotten married. Nick thought they'd be engaged forever, what
with the tour for the album that he and his bandmates Brian, Kevin, Alex, and Howie had just recently released in the summer.
He was so happy that he could finally introduce Brianna as his wife, instead of his fiancee... He continued to watch her across
the room, smiling, talking to Brian's wife, Leighanne, "Its just, I can't believe we finally made it."
"I can, you wouldn't shut up about it for the last two weeks of the tour." Alex said, taking a swig from the water bottle
he had in his hand.
"Nick? Not shut up? I can't imagine..." Aaron trailed off, laughing as he put up his hand to stop his brother's.
"Play nice, boys." Brianna said, standing next to where Nick sat at the end of the table.
"Hey, Brie... Or should I say, Mrs. Carter." Howie greeted. They looked around the table, trying to figure out who should
move over first to make room for Nick's wife to sit with him. "Um..."
"Don't bother," she said, stopping them mid-motion as they all got ready to shift over. She sat right down on Nick's lap.
"I think I found a better seat..." she put her arm around his neck and kissed him on the cheek.
"If you say so..." Brian said.
"What say we get out of here?" she said, looking into Nick's eyes and raising her eyebrows.
"Uh..." Nick said, pretending to think for a second, then standing up, Brianna in his arms, "I think I'll talk to you guys
"See ya later, loverboy!" Aaron called out as they all laughed while he walked away, carrying his new wife.
"Nick!! Put me down!" Brianna exclaimed, legs flailing, as Nick tried to push open the door with his hand while still carrying
his new wife.
"Not until," he said, placing her on the bed. "I get you here."
"Thank you!" she said, leaning back onto her elbows as she watched her husband walk over to an ice bucket with a champage
bottle resting inside it.
"You know," he picked up two glasses in the other hand, "We just finished a tour."
"Yes, I know," she said, taking the glasses from him as he began to open the bottle, "And we finished a honeymoon not
long after that."
"Do you realize what that means?" Nick asked, popping the cork on the bottle as Brianna shouted in surprise and amusement.
"Should I?" she asked, puzzled as to what Nick meant.
"It means that we'll be staying around here. Working on the next album." he stated as he poured some of the champagne
into his glass, having just poured some into Brianna's.
"...And this means you'll be home more?" Brianna said, taking a sip from her glass, unsure if that was all Nick wanted
to celebrate... "Nick, what else does it mean?"
"It means," he put down his glass and took hers out of her hand, placing it next to his and taking both her hands in his
as he looked into her eyes, "We can start our family."
