Nicole ran into the front of the P*lace where Dena sat serving the rest of the band their ice cream and soda.
"Guess what guys?" Nicole asked with a letter in her hand.
"What?" Ana said looking up from the chocolate malt that she had almost finished.
"I went outside to check the mail and got this! This is a letter…."
Nicole began to say, until she was cut off by Charlie, saying "Yeah, I think we can see that…"
"Shut up, Charlie! Anyway this is a letter from Kenny!" she said. Ana, Charlie and Haylie smiled.
"Great!" they said in slight unison.
"Who?" Anthony asked.
"Yeah, before you guys decide to get all excited about this guy, you need to tell us who he is!" Dena said, stepping from around the counter and over to Nicole.
Anthony also looked as confused as Dena did as to who Kenny was. But then, Dena recalled that for a short period of time before she bought the P*lace, she got to meet the band back when Kenny was a member.
"Aw, now I remember. Kenny used to be in the band a couple years ago." Dena said to Anthony.
"Oh. Cool." Anthony said taking another swig of his soda.
"And guess who he says he's inviting?" Nicole said even more excited.
"Who?" Charlie said the sitting up in his chair, and looking excited, leading the rest to look excited.
"Jared, you remember him, some kid named Eric, a girl named Devyn…and, Ana, YOUR COUSIN! ROBIN!" Nicole said. The band was almost jumping out of their seats at that list, especially Ana, who had not seen her cousin for months, as she was performing a full season on Broadway as the lead character in Mary Poppins. On top of that neither Haylie nor Ana had seen Eric for nearly two years. They never knew Devyn in person, they only knew about her from what Kenny told them, all being fond memories of her before she went into her career of radio broadcasting.
"Wow, talk about a line-up!" Charlie said, stepping up from his seat and grabbing the letter himself to get a look.
It sounded like it was going to be a great Christmas, seeing all they're old friends (and new company) again, but Kenny, and the others, didn't stop there.
