" Britney, can we please get going? I Want to get there early enough so I can
possibly get a chance to meet them." Kaitlyn asked her sister, following her to
the back of the house.
Britney grabbed her brush out of the bathroom, and began to run it through
her long dark blonde hair. " Will you calm down? Your lucky I'm even bringing
you to the concert."
" I could have gone by myself. You didn't have to invite yourself along just
because Amber couldn't come with me."
" You may be very capable of going by yourself, but you know how much I worry
" That's only because our little sister got herself into some trouble. But
I'm nothing like her. She is the one you should be worrying about. I'm not
going to sleep with some stranger and get myself pregnant like she did."
" Right. Because you've never put yourself in that situation before." Britney
rolled her eyes. " You got lucky when you got into that car with that
stranger last year. He could have..."
" I swear, I make one mistake and I never hear the end of it! Let it go,
Britney." Shuffling her purse from one shoulder to the other, she grabbed her
sister's wrist and began to drag her down the hallway. " Now please let's
get out of here. You know how much this means to me."
Britney pulled out of her sister's grasp. " Stop dragging me, Kaitlyn. Your
acting like a baby." She snapped.
" I'll just go by myself. I'll take the bus." Kaitlyn dashed out the front
door, and began running to the bus stop. She ignored her older sister's screams
as she ran to catch the bus.
For the last four years, Kaitlyn had been living with Britney and their
younger sister Miranda. It was unfortunate for them that both of their parents
were gone. Their mom had died of cancer and their dad had been involved in a
drunken car accident shortly after that, leaving them totally alone. While it
affected all three of them, it seemed to affect Miranda the most. So they
decided to stick together for her sake.
At twenty five years old, Kaitlyn was working as an art teacher in elementary
school. She worked on her own art off to the side, hoping to become a famous
artist one day. She loved to paint and did some sculpturing as well. Many
of her friends admired her work, and had even bought some stuff from her.
Her older sister Britney worked as a chef at her own restaurant, and was
often busy teaching herself new recipes to possibly put on the menu. Miranda
worked there as a server, at eighteen years old.
Catching the bus barely in time, her cell phone rang. She looked to see it
was Britney. With a sigh, she answered it. " You really don't have to come with
me, Britney. I'm on the bus anyway, and I will be fine. Just... work on some
mystery recipe for your restaurant or something."
" Fine. But if you get yourself into any trouble, don't come crying to me
about it." Britney hung up on her.
Kaitlyn threw her cell phone back into her purse, and paid attention to her
surroundings as the bus drove along. She didn't want to miss any of her stops
along the way and get lost. This concert was the most important thing in the
world to her. She had only ever seen Hanson one time before, and that was before
her mom had died. She had gone with her, and it had been the most amazing night
of her life. But more than anything, she hoped to meet them this time around.
Zac and his brothers were getting ready to go onstage, and had just gotten
through meeting some of their fans. With a smile on his face, he walked to the
dressing room. He never got tired over his fans excitement. It just made him happy
to see that their music had a huge impact on them.
" Zac, what are you thinking about?" Taylor asked him, as they reached the
dressing room and he sat down for a moment.
" Nothing. I just love meeting our fans. Their amazing." He said, sitting
down next to Taylor.
Isaac nodded his head in agreement. " I totally agree. Our fans totally rock.
Most have been there every step of the way with us."
" Yeah. Especially our wives." Taylor smiled, thinking about Natalie. " We
got extremely lucky to meet such amazing women, and have such amazing kids
Zac ran his fingers through his hair, pushing it out of his face. " I know.
And now I have another kid on the way. I can't wait to meet this new little
" I can't wait to meet him or her either. It will be one spoiled kid, that is
for sure." Isaac said, smiling at his brother. He knew how excited Zac was
to be expecting another baby. " Just like his or her siblings."
They got the call then that it was just about time for them to get onstage,
and they got all set up to go on. Moments later, they started up the show
with their new single " Get The Girl Back."
Kaitlyn had missed her oppurtunity to meet them before the show, but she
wasn't about to miss out afterwards. She didn't care how long after she had
to wait, she was going to meet them. When she had bought her ticket, she
had managed to get a good seat towards the front of the venue. So she had a
good view of all three. She screamed and sang at the top of her lungs all
through the concert, dancing and clapping as well. When Taylor came close
enough to shake a few hands during the show, she reached out and he shook her
hand along with a few other's before continuing on with " In The City." That
made her so happy to be able to shake his hand.
After the show, she headed over to the merchandise booth to buy a shirt. She
picked one out and paid for it with her credit card. Just when she turned
around to walk out the doors, someone shoved her out of the way and she
fell to the floor. A woman nearby helped her up and led her out of the way
of other fans pushing their way out. " Thank you so much." She told
" Your welcome. Are you okay?"
" Yeah. I'm Kaitlyn by the way." She held out her hand, and the two shook
" I'm Kate. It's nice to meet you, Kaitlyn."
Brushing her light brown hair out of her face, she got a good look at Kate
and realized she was pregnant. Wondering if this was Zac's wife, she
couldn't help but ask. " I hope you don't mind me asking, but... are you Zac's
" Yeah, I am." Kate smiled at her. " Did you enjoy the show?"
" It was amazing. Your husband and his brothers are so awesome." Kaitlyn told
her. " I've never had a chance to meet them, but I was hoping to get out
there and wait for them to come out."
" You know what? I have a better idea. Follow me." Kate suggested with a
smile on her face. " I think you'll prefer this over waiting for them out
" Seriously? You'll actually introduce me to them?" Kaitlyn asked in
Kate smiled at her. " Yeah. I would like to help you out." She said. " It's
difficult to get past other fans as you may have noticed and I wouldn't want
you to get run over or anything."
" That sounds great." Kaitlyn followed her backstage, unable to believe that
this was actually happening. After dreaming of meeting them for many years, it
was finally happening.
Knocking on the dressing room door, Kate heard Isaac give her the go ahead to
come in. She opened the door, and Kaitlyn came in right behind her. " Guys, I
have one fan here for you to meet. Someone pushed her over on her way out,
and she said she never had a chance to meet you. I just couldn't help but
invite her backstage. This is Kaitlyn."
Zac smiled at Kaitlyn, and shook her hand. " Hi Kaitlyn. It is very nice to
She smiled back at him nervously. " You too."
He is even hotter in person, she thought to herself. She had always
had a thing for Zac, and just couldn't help herself. She looked him up and
down before shaking hands with Taylor and Isaac.
" It looks like you have a new shirt there. Would you like us to sign it?"
Taylor asked, after shaking her hand.
" That would be great. Thank you so much." She handed him the shirt, and he
grabbed his marker to sign it.
" Did you enjoy the show?" Isaac asked, waiting for his turn to sign the
" It was totally amazing. You guys rocked it tonight." She told him. " I've
seen you once before with my mom. But this totally tops that night,
especially with getting to meet you three."
" Is your mom a fan too?" Zac asked, grabbing the shirt and marker from
Taylor so he could sign it.
" She actually died, just a few months after that show. She had cancer."
Kate looked at her sadly. " I am so sorry, Kaitlyn. I bet that was tough."
She gave her a little hug." But your mom is in a better place now."
Kaitlyn nodded. " Yeah. I know. She... she wasn't like a huge fan or
anything, but she understood my obsession over you three."
The three of them laughed, and Isaac took the shirt to sign it. " That's good
to hear." He said.
She talked to them a few more minutes, telling them a bit about her mom and
telling them how awesome she thought they were. The best part was when she
told them how much their music meant to her and that it was got her through
her mom's death. They each gave her a little hug and thanked her for her
support, telling her how much it meant to them that they were able to
help her get through that.
Kate then walked her out and gave her another hug. " I'm going to give you my
number, Kaitlyn. I want you to call me whenever you want or need to talk."
Kaitlyn nodded. " Thank you, Kate. I will." She took out her cell phone, and
handed it to Kate. " And thank you for bringing me backstage to meet them.
You are pretty awesome."
With a smile, Kate punched her number in and gave her back the cell phone. " Your welcome.
Call me soon."
Kaitlyn headed towards the bus stop, and called Britney to let her know that
she was on her way home.
