Why did they have to only stay here for a short while? I asked a hug, too. Before the group photo and before leaving and another one in between that. I got a video of that. Lol, no Jose Pasillas caught on video though. The night is not over. July 28 ended for me at approximately 3: The trip took shorter than I had expected, felt like we got there after 20 minutes! I saw the street team on the lobby about to check in to a room, said my hi-hellos to them and proceeded with checking out the place.
I went to the 2nd floor and I saw Chie! We were waiting outside this bar hoping one of them would come out. Apparently, while we were in the washroom, Brandon and Mike went out. Chie only went there to have her BB books signed.
I felt like I just destroyed her night, then I was determined to make it up to her.
She came back the morning after and got her books signed after all, plus they got a photo together, yay! She says I twisted her fate, lol. She even got a bonus in the form of witnessing Jared Leto and Incubus in one room.
