Ruthie’s sudden outburst caused Celine to jump clear off the bed. Clearing her throat, Celine replied, “I’m sorry?”
“No!” Ruthie shook her head feverishly. “You just said you wanted to relive our childhood again, right?”
“Then I can’t in good conscience meet Intensity by taking the pussy way out.” Ruthie stomped over to her wastebasket and retrieved the tiny book, staring at her friend pointedly.
“You can’t be serious!” Celine gasped.
Ruthie pursed her lips and lifted the book in the air, waving it around manically. “We are going to meet him by doing it the way our seventeen year old selves always tried to!”
“BY SNEAKING BACKSTAGE?” Images of their old diagrams flashed through Celine’s head. She shook her head quickly. “It’s never going to work! You’re insane!”
“It will work,” Ruthie replied adamantly.
“NO WAY!” Celine yelled. “You happen to forget that I’m technically a public figure. I can’t get caught sneaking backstage at a boy band concert. How bad would that look for my career?”
“You use a pen name,” Ruthie smirked.
“Regardless, as a grown woman I have to put my foot down and veto this idea. I have gone this long without a criminal record and I’m not about to tarnish that!”
Ruthie couldn’t help but laugh. “Oh, come on! We’re not going to be arrested! The worst that’ll happen is we get caught and kicked out. At least we tried, right?”
