Disclaimer: This is the true story of seven, sort of, strangers picked to live in a house and have their lives taped to find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real. The Real World-Chicago!
"The movie was great!!!! Now I see why it has made so much money!" stated Trini after seeing 'Titanic' with Adam.
"You must have liked it, you cried like a baby!" said Adam.
"Like you didn't?" asked Trini taking Adam's arm.
"I had something in my eye." he replied.
"And I thought that you were the sensitive one." she stated laughing.
"What do you mean?" he questioned.
"I mean I thought that you could admit to crying in a sad movie unlike some people we know." she replied.
"OK, I was crying but I'm not THAT sensitive." he stated.

"Jase, these have been the best couple of days in my life! We done so many interesting things. I mean how many people go skydiving for their first date!" stated Kat.
"I don't know many and it was our second date. Our first date was at the Olive Garden, remember?" he questioned.
"Of course I do!!!" said Kat snuggling up to Jason on the living room couch.
At first Kat had wanted to use Jason. Use him to get back at Tommy for all of the time he was spending with Kim. But now she found herself falling in love with him. Who could blame her. Jason was extremely good looking and very compassionate. It was hard not to love him. And Kat found herself wanting to be with him even when Tommy wasn't around. But she still hoped that Tommy would be jealous.
"Hey, penny for your thoughts," said Jason bring Kat out of her trance.
"Oh just thinking about school," she lied. "I have a test coming up and I should really study."
"All right. I understand," said Jason giving her a kiss "I'm going to go get a rematch from Rocky. He whupped my butt on NFL GameDay. I think it's about time my Packers kill Rocky's Broncos!"
"Have fun and throw me a touchdown, Farve!" she said getting out her books.
"You can count on it!"

"Hey there, beautiful." said Tommy walking into Kimberly's room.
"Hi!" she stated getting up and hugging him.
"What are you doing in here?" he questioned.
"Not much, I'm just reading," she replied.
"Oh well, I was just wondering if you wanted to go grab a bite to eat?" asked Tommy.
"That would be great. Hold on five minutes though, I gotta page Trini and let her know not to meet me at Ed's." replied Kim.
"Who is Ed?" questioned Tommy suspiciously.
"Ed Debevic's. It's a resturant. I was supposed to meet Trini there and have something to eat," she stated.
"Oh well if you've got plans...." Tommy started.
"No, it's no biggie. She'll be happy that I'm cancelling. She's out with Adam. They went to see 'Titanic'." said Kim.
"So I take it that they like each other." commented Tommy.
"Yeah, what tipped you off?" asked Kim smiling.
"Well Adam said that he wasn't going to give in to the whole 'Titanic' hoopla. He said that the only way he would see that movie was if he was dragged kicking and screaming!" stated Tommy.
"I doubt that is how he got to the movie theater! They are so cute!" replied Kim.
"They remind me of us when we first started going out," he said.
"Yeah, so scared and unsure. Let's go," said Kim getting her purse and walking out as Tommy grabbed her from behind.
"Not so fast there, Kimmy." stated Tommy playfully.
"What?" she questioned.
"You forgot to do something." he replied.
"And that would be?" she responded.
"This." he stated kissing her strongly.

"Jase, do you think I'm invisible?" asked Rocky watching as Jason's Packers lined up on the line of scrimmage.
"Huh? What did you say?" responded Jason.
"Umm, nothing," said Rocky turning his attention back to the game.
* * *
"Wow. So you did all kinds of stunts and everything?" asked Trini sitting on a bench in McArthur Park.
"Yeah, it was really fun and I met a bunch of really cool people. I'm so glad that I took that job," stated Adam.
Suddenly a loud beep came from Trini's pants pocket.
"What is that? Your pants have an alarm?" he asked sweetly.
"No, it's my pager. It's Kim. She's cancelling for dinner. I bet her and Tommy are going to get something together," said Trini.
"What's up with those two anyway?" questioned Adam.
"I think they are this close at getting back together," replied Trini holding her fingers millimeters apart.
"Really?" asked Adam.
"Really," stated Trini.
* * *
"Are you ready?" asked Tommy grabbing his keys.
"Wait a minute. I gotta grab my coat. I'll just run and get it. I won't be more than five seconds." she said bounding up the stairs.
* * *
Kat sat on her bed, studying. The living room wasn't very comfortable so she moved to her room. The phone rang and grabbed her attention suddenly.
"Hello, this is Kat."
"Hey, Kitty-Kat. It's me, Tanya!" exclaimed the voice on the other end.
"Hey Tanya. What's up?" asked Kat.
"Not much here. Maybe I should ask you what's up," stated Tanya.
"Nothing special here," she replied.
"Nothing special? With Tommy in the house, I thought that you and him would be back together in like two seconds." explained Tanya.
"Well, I had hoped it would end up that way but guess who else is here. Kimberly Hart! Tommy and her have gotten rather cozy again," said Kat.
"Kim is there! I'm so sorry Kat. That's gotta be tough," stated Tanya.
* * *
Kim walked by Kat's room and stopped as she heard her name. _I shouldn't be evesdropping but I did hear my name,_ thought Kim as she stood in the shadows next to Kat's door.
* * *
"It's okay, Tanya. I've gotta a plan!".
"And that is?" she questioned.
"Well see Jason Lee Scott is here and him and I are dating now. I'm using him to make Tommy jealous!" stated Kat into the phone.
* * *
Kim clamped a hand over her mouth as she heard Kat tell Tanya her plan. _That little bitch!_ thought Kim _How dare she use one of my friends to get to Tommy!_ Kim quickly ran away from Kat's room deciding what to do about the information she just recieved.
* * *
"But I've got a problem. I'm starting to fall for Jason," said Kat.
"You really think so?" asked Tanya.
"Yeah, he's so great. He really treats me right. He really cares and he had a crush on me way back when we first met!" replied Kat.
"Looks like you've got a problem," replied Tanya.
"That's the understatement of the year!"
* * *
"Tommy, you'll never believe what I just heard!" exclaimed Kim running down the stairs.
"Kat was on the phone with Tanya and she told Tanya that the only reason she and Jason were going out was because she was trying to make you jealous."
"Excuse me?" asked Tommy confused.
"She's using Jason!" replied Kim.
"Are you sure?" he questioned.
"I'm positive! I heard it straight from her own lips!"
"Well, we gotta tell Jase." stated Tommy.
"But it's going to break his heart!" replied Kim.
"I know, Kim but it would hurt him more if we didn't tell him and let him find out the hard way," said Tommy.
"You're right, let's tell him."
* * *
"So what do you want to do?" asked Trini.
"How about we go ice skating," replied Adam.
"I haven't been ice skating since I was like 3 years old!" exclaimed Trini.
"I haven't either. Look if we fall down at least we can laugh at each other!" stated Adam.
"Okay but if I fall you're going with me!" said Trini.
"Deal." he replied.

"Hi, is Sara there?" asked Rocky tentatively.
"I'm sorry, she has class until 2. She should be home like any minute. I'm her roommate, Cordelia. Are you Rocky?" questioned Cordelia.
"Yeah, this is Rocky. I was hoping to catch her but I forgot she had class today," replied Rocky.
"Sara said she had a great time with you at the club. She really likes you, ya know!" stated Cordelia.
"She does?" asked Rocky a bit surprised.
"Oh yeah, you're all she talks about nowadays. She lucky to have a great guy like you. I hear that you're not too bad on the eyes either!" said Cordelia.
"Well, thanks I guess," replied Rocky blushing slightly.
"She just walked in the door. It was nice talking to you. Here she is," stated Cordelia.
"Thanks, Cordi. Hi, this is Sara."
"Hi Sara. It's me, Rocky."
"Oh hey! How are ya? Are you okay? You sound really upset".
"I could use your psychology help. Can we meet somewhere?"
"Sure, I'll meet you at Jordan's, okay?" stated Sara.
"I'll right. Thanks a bunch, Sara," replied Rocky.
"It's no problem. I'll see ya in a few. Bye," she said hanging up the phone.
"Boy do you have it bad!" said Cordelia.
"What? I do not!" exclaimed Sara grabbing her purse.
"Yes, you do! You got it bad for this 'Rocky' guy! I thought you didn't believe in love at first sight?" asked Cordelia.
"I don't, Cordi, that is why I'm seeing this 'Rocky' guy again! Don't wait up!" said Sara leaving the room.
* * *
Kimberly and Tommy walked in to Kat's room and found it empty. They then moved on to Jason's room where Kat and Jason sat talking. Kim walked up to Kat and slapped her hard across the face.
"How dare you use my friend like this, you bitch!" yelled an enraged Kim.
"What the hell is going on? What is your problem, Kimberly?" asked Jason rushing to Kat's side.
"She's using you, Jason. I overheard her talking to Tanya and she told her that she was using you to get to Tommy! She doesn't love you!" said Kim.
"I didn't want to believe it either, Bro, but Kim wouldn't lie about this." stated Tommy.
"Don't listen to them, Jason. I never said that to Tanya. I told you that you weren't a substitute for Tommy and I meant that!!! Don't listen to them, please!" pleaded Kat.
"Did you say that to Tanya?" Jason asked softly "Tell me the truth!"
"I talked to Tanya but-"
"I want the truth, Kat!!! Did you say that to Tanya?" he yelled.
"Yes, I did, but I told her that I had fallen in love with you!" replied Kat.
"Get out of my room," said Jason quietly.
"Jase, you got to listen to me!" continued Kat.
"LEAVE!" yelled Jason "All of you leave!"
"This isn't over between us, Katherine. You will pay for this!" stated Kim walking out of Jason's room.
"Kim, you have to believe me! I told Tanya that I fell in love with Jason and that I didn't know what to do! Call here and ask her!" exclaimed Kat.
"Why would I? She's your best friend, of course she would lie for you!" yelled Kimberly.
"Just call her. She wouldn't lie!" replied Kat.
* * *
"Hey Rocky, what's the problem?" asked Sara sitting down.
"Well, it's the house. I don't feel like I'm apart of them anymore. Adam and Trini are too busy flirting to notice me. Kim and Tommy are getting reaquainted. Jason and Kat are so into each other that I kind of get thrown to the side. I'm not really noticed! I swear I'd have to die for them to realize I'm gone!" said Rocky.
"That's not true! I'm sure that if you sat them down and said I'm feeling kind of left out that they would understand. You need to tell them how you feel and let them know that this hurts you. They aren't mind readers, Rocky, so you can't expect them to know that you're hurt," replied Sara.
"Yeah but after I tell them it will just go back to the way things were before!" stated Rocky.
"Don't assume you know what the future holds! You can say to them let's do more things as a whole group. If you still feel left out call me up and I'll hang out with you!" she said.
"Okay, but will you be there when I talk to them just in case my words kind of get mixed up and weird?" asked Rocky.
"I wouldn't miss it for the world! Now let's order I'm so hungry I could eat a seven course meal!" replied Sara.
"Really? Me too!"
* * *
"Adam, be careful! You're gonna...." started Trini.
"AHHHHHH!" said Adam starting to go down.
"fall!" finished Trini helping him up.
"I thought we had deal. I fall, you fall!" said Adam.
"Well you went down without me!"said Trini laughing.
"I'm having trouble keeping my balance," replied Adam.
"OK, Mr. Martial Arts, take my hand. That should help," instructed Trini.
"How come you haven't fallen yet?" questioned Adam taking Trini's hand.
"I guess I'm better at keeping my balance than you are!" responded Trini.
"I'm glad we did this! I can't remember when I've had this much fun," said Adam.
"Me, too," said Trini "I haven't had this much fun since the peace conference!.
"I'm glad I'm here with you," stated Adam.
"I'm glad I'm here with you," replied Trini.
Adam stepped closed to Trini and bend down to kiss her. Unfortunely, Adam lost his balance adn fell down taking Trini with him.
"That kind of killed the mood, huh?" asked Adam.
"Yep! Come on, we better get going home," replied Trini getting up and helping Adam to his feet.
* * *
"Thanks for dinner, Rocky. I really apprieciated it," stated Sara standing out side of her dorm room.
"No problem. I've never seen a girl eat on a date! It was an amazing concept." stated Rocky.
"I try. I didn't realize that this was a date," responded Sara.
"Sorry, I didn't-" started Rocky.
"Don't. I'm glad it was a date. That means that I can do this," said Sara kissing Rocky.
"Wow. That was more amazing than I imagined! Can we go out again?" asked Rocky.
"Sure. Pick me up at 7 tomorrow. I have 4 tickets to 'Grease.'" replied Sara.
"Well who else is going?"
"Why don't you invite Adam and Trini. We can double," said Sara.
"Okay. I'll see you tomorrow," responded Rocky kissing Sara's hand "Au revoir, Mon Chere."
"Isn't that French?" asked Sara.
"Yeah, why?" responded Rocky.
"Well, aren't you of Spanish descent?" she questioned.
"Yeah, but French is the language of love," replied Rocky wiggling his eyebrows.
"Oh, I see. Well in that case I'll have to learn some French. Could you possibly give a girl lessons?" asked Sara.
"Sure, I think that can be arranged," said Rocky kissing Sara
On the next Real World:Adam, Trini, Rocky, and Sara head to the theater and get a big surprise. Kat tries to get back into Jason's good graces. Kim gives Tanya a call which could have serious consequences! STAY TUNED!
