bananna happy

"Promise me," Olivia grabbed Roger's hand. "You can't say anything about Nick and Heath." She had his hand firm. She felt like putting him in a choke hold if he didn't keep his mouth shut.

"I won't." He shrugged.

"I don't believe you." She informed him with a dead stared.

"What?" He looked at her as if she had no faith in him at all. They walked in and found everyone at a wrap around booth.

"Don't do it," She whispered in his ear then and gave him a kiss on the cheek.

"Are we late?" Roger then approached them. He slid in by Nick.

"No, no, you're fine." Nick told him.

Olivia looked around at Kelsey and Heath. It was going to be fine, just like Nick said. And then she looked at Nick, and she thought Nick might crawl under the table.

"I wonder if they have bananna splits here," Olivia smiled as if that was the cure for anything. "I think Nick needs one."

"If you get one, I'll share it with you," Heath smiled.

"OK." Nick nodded as if he really wanted Heath to explain to everyone what was going on.

"That does sound good," Kelsey smiled.

"Bananna splits for everyone!" Heath chuckled.

"Is that code for something?" Roger looked over at Olivia.

"Hush," she whispered in his ear.

The waitress took their order then. Once she was gone. Nick sighed.

"Did you get a job, Nick?" Kyle asked.

"No." He shook his head. "I-I" He licked his dry lips and drank some iced water then.

"Nick and I are-" Heath started. "Well, its actually more-" He slightly winked.

"No." Nick was a bit jumpy.

"Its OK." Olivia told him.

"What are you trying to tell us?" Kelsey looked at Nick then Heath.

"I'm-I'm living with my boyfriend." Heath smiled. "Uh, Nick."

"You're boyfriend is named Nick?" Kelsey smiled as if it were a coincidence of some kind. "His boyfriend is-" Then she looked at Nick. It was as if she'd choked on her words suddenly.

"Nobody's going to have a prob-" Nick started.

Kyle looked at him. "No, no, of course not, Nick." He looked at Kelsey who didn't say anything.

"Who cares what we think, Nick," Roger sighed. "If its what you want, then hey, be happy."

"Yeah, be happy." Nick nodded with a sigh.

I'm happy he's out now, that should make life a lot less complicated.

I feel the exact same about the whole "I don't know who they're desiging for" thing...Its funny how magazines likes Seventeen even try to showcase "every body type" but it's like "petitie, large chest, tall" the end. Definetley not everyone!!! Let's hope there is some sort of reform someday soon

hope you had a good weekend
