Early On a Saturday 1/?
May 13, 2000 9:30 PM - Maddi and Sam quickly enter Maddi's large
apartment and shut the door. "Do you think anybody saw us?" Sam
asks her "The secret service, but they can't say anything." She
responds as she sits down on the sofa. "I hate having to keep this a
secret." He says with a sigh as he sits down on the next to her. "Why do
we have to?" she asks. "Maddi, we've been over this." "Yes, but I don't
really understand it." she says, standing up. "Fine." "What?" "Okay, we
can tell everyone." "No, we can't, and I hate it and it isn't fair!" Sam
chuckles at this "Are you laughing at me?" "Sorry, it's just that you
sounded like a three year old." He says walking over to her. She quickly
gasps and grabs a pillow that is sitting on a chair then she hits him in
the side with it. He grabs another pillow and hits her with it. They
continue the pillow fight until Maddi pushes Sam onto the sofa, he pulls
her on top of him and they start kissing. Then the phone rings, she sighs
and looks towards the ceiling, then grabs the phone off the coffee table.
"Hello" "Hi Maddi " "Zoey hi" "Beckey's here" Maddi sits up. "That's
nice" she says somewhat uninterested "Mom and Dad want you to
come for breakfast in the morning. Beckey has some news." Maddi
sighs "okay, what time?" "Like eight" "Oh that's early." "I guess" "For
someone who wakes up at five every morning, eight on a Saturday is
early." "Okay" "I'll see you in the morning, bye." "Bye." Maddi hangs up.
"Who was that?" "Zoey, my sister Beckey is in town and I have to go to
my parents house for breakfast in the morning." She stands up "Do you
want some wine?" "Sure" he follows her into the kitchen. "I really do not
want to go." "Why not, I mean you don't see Beckey that much." "I see
her enough." She says "Why don't you like her?" he asks handing her
two wineglasses. "I don't not like her " She says as she gets a bottle of
red wine from the wine rack on her counter "I just, we don't get along."
"Why?" "I have no idea." She hands him a glass of wine. "Okay" he
says skeptically as they go back into the living room. "I was the
youngest for six years, I was used to getting a lot of attention and then
Beckey was born and it stopped. And when we were kids - You don't
want to hear all of this." "It's fine. " "Are you sure?" "Yes." "She was
always mean to me, Zoey and Maggi too, she only got along with
Elizabeth. " Maddi pouts "Whenever I did something she always had to,
she always had to upstage me and I know that sounds babyish, but it
really happened, and I am sick of it because -"Sam puts his finger to
her lips to stop her talking. "That doesn't sound babyish." She rests her
head in his shoulder. "And as we got older everything just got worse."
He runs his hands through her hair. " I just don't know what she'll do
next, I don't think I even want to know." "So you'll go, and be miserable
for a few hours, and that's it." "I want you to come. " "I can't, you know
that. " "Yes I do I just want you to." She pauses for a minute "I'm going to
tell my parents tomorrow." "You can't" "I can and I will." "Just wait a few
more weeks." "I can't, I am sick of sneaking around." "I think it's kind of
fun. Please. We can tell him after the town hall meeting next week."
"Promise?" "Promise." "I love you." She kisses him "I love you too."
