The Longest Car Ride ~ 8

~Two Hours Later~

As the rain slowly began to let up, Sam let out a sigh of relief. He could actually see the city of Chicago now. "Hey guys," he said as he tapped CJ on the shoulder. He turned around and woke up Toby and Josh. "Hey, wake up. Look."

"Huh? What?" Josh said, drool on his shirt.

"Ugh, gross," CJ said. "Josh, what are you, two years old?"

"What?" He looked at his shirt. "Oh."

"What is it, Sam," Toby asked as he opened his eyes.

Sam smiled. "It's the city. Look, you can see the Sears Tower and the Hancock Building."

"Cool," CJ said with a smile. "I remember when we were here four years ago, when we won the Illinois primary." She smiled at the memory.

Toby nodded, "Yeah, that was a good day. I still can't believe we won."

Josh rolled his eyes. "Can't you be positive about anything, Toby?"

"Yes, I can." He said flatly.

"*Will* you be positive," CJ asked.

"No."

"Party pooper," Sam muttered.

"What was that," Toby asked, leaning forward.

Sam continued to look straight ahead. "Nothing. Hey look, there's the hotel."

"Chicken," Toby said to himself.

"Oh no!" CJ said suddenly.

"What is it," Sam said as he swirved from CJ's sudden outburst.

"It's 6:30pm! We were supposed to be here at 1:30!"

"Oh sh--" Josh began.

"Ah, ah, ah, no swearing in this car," Sam said.

"Oh shut up!" The others yelled.

Sam found a parking space at the hotel they had to be at and parked the car.

"Ow, ow, ow, leg cramp," Toby moaned as he got out of the car. "Maybe we should just sit there for a while."

CJ hit him over the head with her purse. "Shut up, Pokey."

The four walked into the hotel and went to the front desk. Sam told the man behind the counter who they were and the man pointed to what looked like a ball room of some sort.

"Thank you," Sam said as he gestured for Toby, CJ, and Josh to follow him.

"We are so dead," Josh said as they reached the large room.

"What the hell?!" Leo said as he walked over to the four. "Where on earth have you guys been? We have been waiting for over five hours!"

"Do you really want to know," Toby asked.

"Probably not. Come on, the President is expecting you."

"This'll be fun," Sam muttered.

"Shh!" CJ hit him over the head with her purse.

"Ow! CJ, that thing is dangerous," Sam said as he rubbed his head.

The President stood when he saw Leo and the others behind him. "Well, I am so glad you guys decided to join us."

"I am very sorry sir, but we had a few...what's a good word?" Sam asked.

"Catastrophes," Toby said.

"Incidents," CJ interrupted.

"Why does this conversatioCatastrophes familiar," Jed asked, looking pointedly at the four.

They shrugged.

"Sir, would you like to have them change and meet us down here in an hour?" Leo asked, changing the subject.

"Yeah, good idea. Then we can discuss what it means to be punctual. You know, on time?"

"I'm thinking about changing my middle name to 'on time,'" Sam said, earning a glare from the President. "I'll shut up now."

"Thank you. Go clean up and then come back and we'll have a discussion on what the difference is between punctuality and tardiness."

"I already know the difference," Josh said proudly.

"Shut up!" Toby, Sam, and CJ yelled at him.

"Go. Change. Now." Jed said.

"Yes, sir," they said meekly as they headed towards the elevators. They were not at all excited at what was about to happen next.
