Robert had been sleepwalking on and off for 4 years, when I say on and off, sometimes he was really sleepwalking and other times he used his "illness" to pretend he was sleepwalking, Myriah was on to him or so she thought, the girls had dressed Robert up in their clothes, made him up like a girl and had taken him for a walk around the block, as things can happen, Kevin and Taylor, two good looking guys from school, were out at exactly that same time, They had asked if the 4 "girls" would like to go to a party? not one to pass up a chance to go to a party with Kevin and Taylor, Sue and Myriah almost jumped into the waiting van, Even though Aleanne turned down their offer in an attempt to get Robert home and cleaned up, Kevin watched Aleanne struggle with the "pretending sleepwalking" Robert, he stopped the van and helped get Robert and Aleanne in the van, "You can't be walking home like that, he said" he refused to take no for an answer, when they arrived at the party Aleanne again offered to sit in the van with Robert while the other girls went inside, Sue and Myriah thought this was the best option, not wanting Robert to be a drag on their evening, (Pardon the pun)
While Robert and Aleanne were in the van Robert decided to come clean with Aleanne, she didn't deserve to be lied to, Aleanne was furious at first but the more she looked at Robert dressed as he was in the feminine attire Myriah had chosen for him, she couldn't help but laugh, "What were you thinking" she asked, "Well I didn't think she would dress me up like a girl and take me to a party if that's what your thinking" "I was just hoping to see what girls did when they had a sleepover"
Aleanne laughed again and said, "Well you found out the hard way didn't you, lol" and they both laughed, Robert was happy to talk to Aleanne about anything she wanted to chat about, he had a little crush on her truth be told, but as the night went on they both got tired waiting for the other girls and decided to have a nap until they came back, They both woke up at the same time when the noisy bunch came back to the van, it was them, Kevin, Taylor, Sue and Myriah, Kevin was the only one sober, he drove them all home to Sue and Roberts house, Kevin, gentleman that he was offered to help get Robert to the door, the girls said they could handle "her" but thanks for the offer, two toots of the horn later the van disappeared round the corner, they were all laughing as they got to the front door, Sue said, "Did we leave the light on when we left?" Myriah answered "I don't think so" Just then the door flew open, it was Sues mother, "Where the hell have you been, and who is this? she was looking straight at en femme Robert, Sue tried to bluff her way inside, she knew she had to get Robert upstairs' and get him cleaned up, before her mother realised what had happened, no such luck.
"Oh MY GOODNESS" she shouted, "What have you done to Robert?" Myriah was the first to answer, "Well you said we could do whatever we liked and he wouldn't wake up, it got a little out of hand when we suggested that we take him round the block,"
Aleanne jumped in, "It was YOU who suggested we take him outside not "we"?
Girls, Girls, Stop it, listen, stop arguing, get upstairs and get Robert cleaned up and changed, as the girls turned to head upstairs, the door bell rang, Sue answered the door, "Your Limo is here Ma'am" said the limo driver, Sue was in shock, "Your too early," she said, Yes Ma'am I realize that, but your flight has been moved up 2 hrs early, we need to set off right now or you'll miss your flight, as the driver headed back to his car we all stared at mom, but she was only looking at Robert, she said,
"Omg this is crazy, get your suitcases, we will have to go as we are, We all grabbed our cases with mom picking up her case and Roberts, " We will have to change Robert when we get there"
Robert, who was still pretending to be asleep, looked at me with a face I have never seen before, a combination of shock and get me the hell out of here, while all the confusion was going on around us, I mouthed to him, "Wake up"
He answered "I can't "Just" wake up, I've never "Just" woke up before, they always take me to bed or I usually just get up and go to bed myself," Mom came over to Aleanne and told her, "Here's a pill for Robert just get him to take it, it will keep him asleep until we get to California" I tried to give it to him but he just drank the water and kept the pill in his hand and winked at me, I understood what he was doing, so I winked back at him, we all piled into the limo while the driver put our cases in the trunk, then Myriah got out of the car and said, "I just have to use the bathroom be right back"
