September 9th, 1999 Burbank/Malibu CA.
The Apartment: here
Jonny was now living with Johnson. They were sharing each other's rent. Jonny didn't want to move back to Texas, that would mean he would have to say the marriage was over. He hardly saw Johnson. He was so busy with his soap, that he was never home. So Jonny pretty much had the apartment, all by himself.
Jonny and Cheryl had, had another big fight and Jonny had it. He packed all of his bags and he left.
Cheryl cried and pleaded the whole time, but he was done. He wanted nothing do to with her. She tried calling him on Saturday, but he wouldn't answer. Johnson answered and told her that he had no idea where he was.
So here Jonny was. He was waiting to go pick up his sister. He had offered for her to stay there but she didn't want to. She had stayed at a hotel. He was nervous and excited all at the same time. What if they did win? Michael had told them to just make sure they say thank you to everyone they could think of. Jonny heard the honk of the horn. The ride was ready. They drove to Tany's hotel. Tany came out, she too looked very nervous.
Scott was in a sour mood. Jo-Beth just ignored him.
They had to be at work early so she went to take a bath.
Scott just wanted to go to bed and stay there. He had watched some of the surfing competions. He missed competing but he loved acting. He decided it was to early to go to bed, so he was flipping through the channels. He got to MTV and paused. He was being stupid about Tany. She had a life in Texas and he should stop buying her flowers. She was going to find out, and worse, what if Jo-Beth found out. Scott honestly didn't care. No, I am not being stupid, I need her. Jo-Beth and Scott weren't meant to be, he always thought of Tany when they had sex and when ever she was on TV he would watch. That's how he knew about the nominations. He was always thinking about her. He even bought several copies of "Miracle", just so he could hear her voice. He wished more than anything he could be with her. Just for one night, he wouldn't do anything, but be with her. He wanted to talk to her, no, He needed to talk to her. He heard their name. Some rapper that Scott had never really heard was presenting the "Best Group" Video.
He finshed reading the names, "And the Spaceman goes to........"The Connors". Scott jumped out of his seat. He was so excited, he yelled.
Jo-Beth hearing this, hurried out of the bathtub. "What the hell..." "They won Jo, They won."
Jo-Beth could see it and she knew Scott could too. "Scott we need to talk." "Not now Jo, can't you see I am watching this". "Then when Scott." "I don't want to have this conversation, Jo-Beth."
"When do you want to have it, when you are walking down the aisle with her."
"Scott stop pretending."
"I don't know what you are talking about."
"Don't you Scott, At least give me the decensy, I am not stupid. I see how she looks at you and how you get sweaty when she is around."
"We are jus....."
"No you are not just friends, Scott." Tears swelled up in her eyes.
"I saw the receipt."
"You knew about them."
"Oh, Scott." She was really cying now.
"I am so sorry, Jo."
"Don't, don't be sorry for loving her more than me."
"Don't, I am a big girl, I will find someone. But will you promise me one thing Scott."
"Promise me you won't go out with anybody but her."
"I promise." He started to get up.
"Don't I will be out in just a few hours."
