Beverly Hills Teen Club
Troy, Shanelle and Gig were watching Radley surfing. “He is totally awesome.” Troy said watching his best friends surfing moves. Gig nodded. Then Radley jumped and now he is surfing with one hand everyone applauded. Then Radley decided to show off his new surfing moves completed with the encore finally then he jumped off the board did two flips and landed on his feet. Everyone stood up and cheered. Pearce rolled his eyes and continued to comb his hair.
“That was great mate.” Gig replied high fiveing his friend.
“Aw thank you thank you.” Radley took a bow “the surf gods were smiling on me.”
“Really.” Pearce said rolling his eyes. “There is more to life than just surfing.” he replied; Pearce continuing to check himself out in the mirror one of his favorite hobbies.
“Oh Radley are you going to the turn-out party tomorrow?” Shanelle asked.
“You bet I wouldn’t miss it for the world.” Radley replied happily.
Radley, Troy, Gig were heading home. “I will see you mates later.” Gig replied getting into his car. Troy waved goodbye to Nikki and Buck.
“I got to run I got a date.” Buck said.
“Oh with the same girl?”Nikki asked.
“Yep, in fact I will be bringing her to the turn-out party.”
“That’s nice.” Nikki said. “See you tomorrow”
“Likewise Nikki baby; ciao”
Later on that day
Radley came home his parents were in the sitting room.
“Brad how was your day at the club?” His mother asked.
“Totally awesome I hit a big wave.” Radley gloated.
“That’s wonderful son.” his father said. “Brad we have wonder news for you; your cousin Heather is coming here to visit during her school break.”
“COWABUNGA!!! Radley shouted this is the best news ever.” “When is she coming?” He asked.
“She will be here the day after tomorrow?” His mother replied. “So I want you to make her feel welcome and introduce her to your friends and show her around Beverly Hills. I know she already knows Troy Jeffries.”
Radley remembers that rather fondly she came to visit when they were eleven he and Troy hung out at the beach, go swimming, build sand castles, bury each other in the sand and go to Quickie Burger. Those were the days.
Next day- Turn-out party
The party was in full swing everyone was at the Turn-out dance. Jett and Gig were playing their new songs for the party. Radley’s date was the beautiful Blaze Summers. And of course there was the teen club sweethearts Troy and Larke. Larke looked stunning in a red strapless gown. She waved to her friends.
“You look very nice Blaze.” Larke said to her friend. Blaze was wearing a awesome blue mixed with black party dress. Blaze wore her sapphire necklace and earrings she gotten for her last birthday. Blaze wore some fun black poka dot panty hoes.
“Hey thanks, you look great if Bianca sees you she would shit with envy.” Larke shrugged her shoulders. Troy shook his head as he saw Swichboard drilling Buck for questions.
“When will she ever learn?” Troy said. “You’d think she remember what happened the last time.”
“Bianca and Nicki still won’t talk to her since.” Blaze added.
“Who is she?”
“Where school does she go to?”
“Is she a member of the teen club?”
“Where did you guys meet?” Switchboard asked.
“I’m not talking to you babe.” Buck said politely.
Moments later a girl in a stunning turquoise gown with ruffles on the side gave Buck a big kiss on the cheek.
“CeCe baby ready to boogie?” Before she could answer Switchboard began to ask her questions. CeCe glared at Switchboard with slight annoyance.
“So what’s your name?”
“Where are you from?” She asked sticking a microphone in her face.
CeCe pushed the microphone away from her. “Inquiring minds need to know.” Switchboard replied.
“God your nosey.” CeCe said rolling her eyes.
Switchboard was getting pushy. CeCe snatched the microphone from Switchboard.
“Hey” she protested.
Before Switchboard could react the girl threw the microphone in waterfall display. CeCe grabbed Buck by the arm and headed out to the dance floor.
Switchboard looking rather embarrassed. To make matters worse Bianca and Nicki were laughing at her.
“It serves you right Switchboard darling.” Bianca elbowed Switchboard and she fell in the waterfall display.
Tara Belle helped Switchboard out of the waterfall display.
“Are you alright sugar?” Tara asked.
“I guess.” she replied she looked like she wanted to cry.
“That mean ole Bianca she didn’t have to push you in the waterfall.” Tara walked Switchboard to dressing room.
Later on the party was winding down. And the gang was sitting at a table they all noticed Radley is beaming from ear to ear.
“So why are you so happy? I haven’t seen you this happy since you surfed the 20 foot wave.”Troy asked.
“Dude my cousin Heather is coming here tomorrow.”
“Oh that’s wonderful.” Larke gushed. “I can’t wait to meet her.” Blaze replied.
“How is Heather doing?” Troy asked “It’s been a very long time.”
“She is doing fine she is a model and she also did some commercials.” Radley beamed showing them her picture.
“Oh she’s the Blue Sensations girl.” Shanelle said.
Before Shanelle was about to give the picture to Tara Pierce took it. “Oh a girl to match my own perfection.” He said.
“And what makes you think she would go out with you?” Shanelle asked.
“She would naturally will fall for me I am Pierce Thorndyke III; When is my little princess is coming?” Pierce asked combing his hair.
“Tomorrow.” Radley replied through gritted teeth.
“Catch you later gang I got to look perfect for tomorrow.” Pierce said waving off his friends.
“I highly doubt Radley’s beautiful cousin would give Pearce the time of day; I don’t care if she is from New York.” Buck replied.
By the time the party was wrapping up word has gotten out that Pierce is going to make Heather his latest conquest.
Switchboard had forgotten all about her embarrassing moment with Buck’s girlfriend when she heard about the juiciest gossip.
“Oh this is so juicy” she said she could barely contain herself. “We are getting a newcomer and she isn’t even here yet and she is making major headlines. From what I gather she is Radly’s cousin who is a model and she is the Blue Sensations girl. And Our Pierce Thorndyke is making her his latest conquest.”
“He will only fail and make an ass out of himself.” Bianca told Buck and CeCe.
“I bet she’d push him in the pool.” CeCe added placing five hundred dollars on the table.
“You’re on my dear; When does she come?” Buck asked.
Swichboard over hears the conversation between Bianca and Buck. “Oh yes this is very juicy they are placing bets on Pierce failing to impress the Blue Sensations girl. I would throw in one thousand and would personally would love to see Pierce ask her out.
“Tomorrow I believe.” Bianca added fanning herself.
The next morning
“Radley time to get up.” his mother called. It’s time to pick Heather up from the Airport.
“COWABUNGA!!” Radly said jumping out of bed. “Rightous day” he said.
He quickly got dressed and went to the car with his mom and dad.
“It’s been two years since I seen her.” His mom replied.
Heather kept in touch with Radley with letters and postcards.
Radley and his parents were at the airport waiting for Heather to arrive. Moments later a beautiful girl was headed in their direction she was carrying a pink and white shoulder bag and one large suitcase.
“HEATHER!!!” Radley called out. The young lady looked up and ran to her cousin.
“Radster, Whats up?”She said the high five each other then gave each other a big hug.
“How is the surfing?”She asked.
“Totally awesome; How are you doin Heather?”
“I am doing great.”
Then heather greeted her aunt and uncle. Radley and his father took Heather’s bags to the car.
Radley and his family returned home. Radley took Heather to her room.
“Oh I can’t wait to take you to the Teen Club.” Radley gushed.
Heather smiled I would awesome; I would like to meet your friends it seems like I already know they from the letters you send me. Right now I would like to take a nap and get settled then I would go to the club with you.”
“How is Troy doing?” She asked.
“Oh Troy is doing great.”
“You were the talk of the teen club yesterday.” Radley boasted.
“Even Pierce wants to take you out.”
“Pierce? Isn’t that the guy that is way too in love with himself?” she asked.
“Dude combs his hair more than you and Larke Tanner put together.”
Heather’s eyes widen “Really?I don’t believe you Rads.”
Jetlag was kicking Heather’s butt she decided to take a nap and after she got settled in.
Few hours later
Heather woke up from her nap she smiled as she dug through her designer overnight bag. She found her favorite ZZ Top cassette. She placed in the stereo in her room. Heather cranked up the stereo while she was unpacking.
“Alright booggy down cuz Heather.” Radley replied dancing to the song Legs.
“This is my favorite song and Sharp Dressed Man.” Heather relied the two cousins began to dance to the music then the music stopped.
“Hey what gives?” Radley cried “I was getting my party on?”
Heather went to the stereo. “Oh the tape got eaten.” she replied sadly as she saw what’s left of her tape.
“You mean the stereo was hungry?” Radley asked.
Heather looked at her cousin and shook her head.
“The tape was old it was going to happen I just have to replace it. It’s not a big deal I brought more music.” She pulled out the cassettes that she brought.
Radley was impressed with his cousins taste in music Heather had everything from Madonna to Def Leppard.
“Cool you got The Clash.” Radley replied happily.
Radley put Madonna in the stereo. While Heather unpacked Radley talked and caught up.
Larke, Troy, Tara and Pierce were sitting by the pool.
“Where is Radley?” Larke asked.
“Radley said he is on his way, his cousin was just finished getting settled in.” Troy replied.
“Oh she is getting ready for me.” Pierce replied staring at his reflection.
“Radley must have told her what a irresistible hunk I am. The poor girl had to look perfect for me.”
Tara and Troy shook their head.
“I can’t wait to meet her.” Larke said.
“It’s been a long time since I saw her.” Troy replied. When she came for a visit we used to play on the beach and play in the sand and go swimming.”
“Oh Troy that sounded like fun.” Larke said.
“Hey gang whats going on?” Switchboard asked as she sat next to her friends.
“Radley’s cousin is coming to the teen club.” Blaze said.
“It would be nice to get some new blood in here for a change.” the southern belle replied.
Bianca was laying out in the sun when she over heard the Teen Club members gush over a girl that’s not a member. Most of all surf brain’s stupid cousin. Bianca yawned loudly.
“What’s the big deal about Radley’s bimbo cousin coming to the Teen Club.”
“She’s the Blue Sensation’s girl.” Switchboard said excitedly.
“I don’t care if she was the LA Gear model;She no one important.” Bianca replied.
“And you are?” Switchboard added with sarcasm.
Before Bianca could reply Radley came in with a stunning looking blond in a turquoise bikini the boys looked up. When Heather walked past all the boys were looking at the stunning blond she even got Wilshire attention. Wilshire spilled his water on Bianca.
“Wilshire you dumb ass klutz!!!” Bianca barked.
“Sorry my sweet.” Wilshire apologized grabbing a towel and drying the dark haired princess.
“Everyone this is my cousin Heather; Heather this is Larke Troy Switchboard Tara and the on in the corner sulking is Bianca.”
“Hello it’s nice to meet you all.” Heather said shaking their hands.
“It’s so good to see you again.” Troy replied giving Heather a hug.
“Ooh I love your bikini.” Larke gushed.
“Thank you very much.” Heather replied.
Bianca narrowed her emerald green eyes at the newcomer then she watched as Heather began to chat with the others. Oh great another goodie goodie. Bianca thought
“So what part of New York you live in?” Swichboard asked.
“I live in the Manhattan area but I like to go all over different parts of New York it’s so much fun to see the different fashions and culture.”
“So where did you get the dynamite swim suit?” Troy asked.
“I got this in LA.” she replied.
“LA?” Bianca choked on her mineral water.
“I would never buy a swimsuit there its so tacky; I only buy my swimsuits here in Beverly Hills or they come from Paris. Look at my beautiful Laqui original she said standing up modeling her white swimsuit.”
“As usual, you look lovely an angel that came down from heaven.” Wilshire replied.
Shanelle rolled her eyes.
“Um sorry to burst your bubble but that is not a Laqui original.” Heather said.
“Laqui has a distinct design on his swimsuits and that isn’t it. And that style is so four months ago; Nothing wrong with it it still looks stunning on you.”
Bianca blushed and sat down. Blaze and Shanelle were laughing.
“And have you ever been to LA Bianca?”
“Bianca hasn’t been outside of Rodeo drive. And anywhere below Melrose is considered the ghetto.” Nikki added.
“Heaven’s to homony grits what’s a ghetto? Is a landfill?” Tara asked innocently.
Tara was sweet but she has no idea about life.
After Heather did a couple of laps around the pool. Larke, Blaze, and Shanelle took Heather to their locker rooms and decided to show her around the club where she meet Gig, Jett, Chester, and Buck.
“So you’re the Blue Sensation’s girl?” Gig asked.
“Yes.” Heather replied. Gig kissed the back of her hand.
It’s a pleasure to meet you. Heather said.
“Pleasure is all mine luv.” Gig said.
“Oh I just love your outfit.” Nikki gushed.
“Thanks; I love your dress.” Heather replied.
Nikki gasped and nearly talked Heather’s ear off.
“Does that Blue Sensations really work?” Niki asked.
Heather laughed “Yes it does.”
“Can I get it at Fifi’s" Nikki asked.
“ I’m sure you can; you can buy Blue Sensations at any drug store.”
“Ok that sounds awesome.” Nikki said.
Radley was happy that his cousin got on so well with everyone at the teen club well except Bianca. Well Bianca is Bianca.
After Heather changed into a nice turquoise with white polka dot mini dress and her hair was nice an loose the guys really took notice. Poor Pierce fell out of his chair.
Pierce picked himself up and walked over to Heather.
Heather turned around to look at the handsome young man talking to her.
“I was wondering would you do the honor to go out with me?”
“Oh you must be Pierce Thorndyke III.” Heather replied rather flatly.
Pierce perked up “The one and the only.”
Pearce kept bragging about himself not noticing that Heather wasn’t interested in his family’s money. And his new shoes are that same ones Don Johnson wears on Miami Vice. Gig and Buck are laughing.
“Looks like ole Pierce strikes out again.” Buck said shaking his head.
“I guess all girls are immune to Pierce’s so called charm.” Gig replied.
The Next Day
Heather went to the popular music store that Radley told her about he says all the teen clubbers go to.
“It’s the store everyone goes to Its like the VIP of all music stores. Radley told Heather.
Heather frowned. “It’s a music store like Sam Goodie or Music Land, Not a night club.”
She got two of her tapes that needed to be replaced. This store can’t be real she thought as she walked inside it was super fancy there were robots working in the store instead of people. This is so weird. She looked at the music selections. The store only had what was hot and popular. She did see one person and asked if they had ZZ Top.
“ZZ wha?” The person asked.
“ZZ Top” Heather said showing the tape to them.
“This was made in 1984.” the person replied.
Heather raised an perfect eyebrow.
“We don’t carry anything that old the oldest this store carries is 1985.”
Heather browsed through the store she did find a couple of tapes then Heather was on her way to LA.
Heather loved LA she loved the environment she smelled the air. She smiled as she saw people walking on the sidewalks and girls rollerskating in bikinis, people walking their dogs, tourist looking around, Heather loved the little taco and hotdog stands.
This is the life Heather thought to herself. Beverly Hills was like a fancy fish bowl to her. As loved her cousin Radley and it was nice to see Troy again it was to dull. Robots doing things for them she just couldn’t live like that. Heather smiled as she saw a very small music store.
“Hello pretty lady.” the guy greeted her.
She smiled “Do you have ZZ Top?” She asked.
“Hey yeah, which one babe?”
Heather pulled out the cassette from her purse. “This is my favorite and the tape player decided to have it for lunch.”
“Yes we do have it.” Then he looked at what was left of her tape. “Bummer; I can tell its been well loved.”
Afterwards she did some shopping and had lunch and went back to the teen club. Heather came and sat with the girls.
“Hi Heather, I love your swimsuit” Tara said.
“Oh Larke are you going to the Sweet Teen Beach social?” Nicki asked.
“Oh course.” Larke replied rather excitedly “I already got my dress.” she said.
All the girls got excited like they were going to hear the president speak. As Larke described her dress there were a course of ohhh and ahhhs.
“Oh Larke you are so lucky.” Nikki cooed “And you have Troy as your date.” A course of ahhhs followed.
Blaze looked up from her magazine “Did you guys see the new Rob Slow movie?”
Heather sat up in her seat. “That was a really cool movie.” Heather replied.
“Oh honey child did you see him shirtless in that one screen?” I almost got the vapors just thinking about it.” Tara said fanning herself with her pink and purple lace fan.
“Oh god yes .”Nikki replied falling back to her lounge chair.
“Like I almost died totally.” Jett added sighing her blue eyes were half closed.
“Like did you see him in those black jeans oh like he has a cute ass totally.” Jett replied.
Heather felt like her head was filling up with oatmeal. Oh god these people are so shallow she thought but she had to admit Rob Slow did look good in those black jeans.
Then they started talking about their allowances. Who has more money, who was the richest in the teen club, and Buck’s girlfriend from Bel Aire.
“Did you hear about the Harrison family?” Nikki chimed in.
“No what” Larke perked up.
“Her family lost their fortune and Amanda have to leave the teen club.”
“Total bummer man” Jett added.
“I guess we won’t be able to talk to her anymore.” Nikki sighed.
Larke yarned “I guess she won’t be invited to my party?” Larke said in the blandest tone. Tara, Nikki, Jett, and Gigi the newest member of the teen club nodded in agreement.
“Who else isn’t coming to your party?” Blaze asked.
“Well Bianca of course and that stupid Switchboard she is so lucky she has money of we wouldn’t even acknowledge her homely ass.” Gigi and Nikki laughed.
Heather yawned as she pretended to be interested in what they were talking about. These girls are no different than the girls at prep school. Heather thought.
Blaze noticed that the new comer was getting bored. Blaze began to talk to Heather
“Rads tell me you ride horses.”
“Yes I do.” Heather replied smiling.
Blaze piped up.
“My friend Veronica has horses and sometimes I go to her stables and ride.” She also been a lot of horse shows. Those are fun to watch.”
“That’s nice, horse shows are a lot of work but its all worth it in the end.”
Jett came back with a chocolate strawberry shake. She noticed some of Heather’s tapes.
“Like look at all of the cool tunes you got.” She sat next to Heather. “I totally looove Madonna she is like the queen.”
“Oh rad you have the Misfits too?” Heather laughed. noticing the Misfits album in Jett’s green and black zebra print bag.
“I like Jem and the Hollograms but I kinda like the Misfits music better.” Heather replied.
“I love Jem and Hollograms Albert took me to see them on my birthday.” Blaze said.
“Oh wow that sounds totally awesome.” Heather said.
“Yeah totally.” Jett agreed “I can totally imagine going to one of Jem and the Holograms concerts are like she said.”
Moments later the three girls began to talk about music, movies, shopping and other things.
The next morning, Heather and Radly went to the Teen Club to do some surfing, this is what Heather really missed, a good surf and catching up with her cousin.
“Hey cuz your totally awesome on the surf.”
“Well I learned from the best; I remember that summer you were determined to teach me how to surf.” Heather replied.
“Yeah you were my best students.”
“Thanks Rads.” Heather replied giving her cousin a hug.
“Do you go to real beaches and surf Rads?” Heather asked.
“I have been to Hawaii.” He said.
Heather told him about the beach she went to the other day.
“Radical!!” he said. “I got to check that place out.”
Afterwards Heather and Radley had some breakfast. Troy and Larke later on joined them. Heather and Troy were catching up.
“Hey Heather did you know that Larke was a model too?”
Oh Troy I don’t think Heather wants to hear about my modeling career.” Larke said modestly.
“Really, I really don’t mind.” Heather replied popping a fresh strawberry in her mouth.
“I am on the cover of Teen Scene magazine and next month I am going to be on the cover of the new magazine YMF, Young Modern Fashion.” Larke replied.
“Have you ever walked a runway?” Heather asked?
“Um, no but it is my ultimate dream to walk a run way for a top fashion designers.” Larke sighed happily.
“Don’t worry you will you’re beautiful.” Heather said
“Thanks” Larke replied sweetly.
Heather and Larke began to talk some more.
Heather went to find the nearest bathroom when she ran into Pierce.
“Hello gorgeous, I was wondering would you do me the honors of going out with the sexiest guy in all of Beverly hills?”
“Where? Heather asked. looking around.
“You’re looking at him.” Pierce replied pointing at himself.
Heather rolled her blue green eyes. “What part of no don’t you understand I’m not interested in you.” Heather snapped.
Pearce watched her stormed off.
“Yippie another six hundred bucks!!” Buck replied. Pierce’s face turned beat red.
Heather enjoyed her trip with her cousin Rads. She even got him to venture out of the teen club. They hit seven different beaches. They both had a blast. A few days later It was time for Heather to go back home.
Radley had breakfast with her in his back yard, she loved the scene of their back yard it was beautiful especially seeing the sun rise. Radley took her to the airport.
“I had a blast Rads I will be coming back after school is out for the summer.”
“Totally awesome.” He cheered.
“I will visit the teen club too; Are you going to Hawaii to see gran and grams 50th wedding anniversary party?”
“I wouldn’t miss it for the world; Sorry that my folks couldn't meet with you at the airport dad got called in a business meeting mom went with him.”
“Ok see you then; Thats ok I understand.”
Radley waved goodbye as he saw his cousin boarding her plane back to New York.
