The next morning…

Kayla woke up and saw Jett still there sleeping. She then thought about what happened last night and it all seemed like one big dream. She thought about what Jason tried to do to her and though she wanted to so bad, she decided to be strong and not shed any more tears because of him. She woke Jett up. "I think I'm ready to talk to your dad now."

"Dad…" he said in a groggy manner then it registered to him that it was morning. "DAD!! I forgot to call him last night. My cell phone was out of juice so I left it at home. He's probably worried. If he's even awake." He jumped out of bed. Kayla checked the caller ID and saw that there was no call from him. "I wonder if he tried J.B." Kay said. "Well, if he didn't call here, he might not be awake yet." Jett said as he left the room so Kayla could dress herself. They then both decided to rush over to Jett's house.

Everyone was still sleeping oddly enough. About 30 minutes later, Wood emerged to find Kayla and Jett sitting on the couch. "What's going on you two?"

"Something happened to Kayla last night dad…" Wood started to frown as he listened in and Kayla explained. "We're going to find him TODAY and deal with this TODAY." He said angrily. "Kayla, come down with me to the station so I can get your statement."

"I'm coming too." added Jett.

"No, Jett. Only Kayla needs to be there."

"Please, Sheriff Jackson, let him come. He helped me so much last night."

Wood thought about it momentarily then allowed Jett to come. Wood took her statement, and then got a warrant for Jason's arrest. Unfortunately, after this incident, Jason ditched town. It didn't take too long for him to be found outside of county lines though. Once returned he was convicted of assault and attempted rape. He was still charged as a juvenile and was due to be out by the time he was 18.

The news shook the town. J.B. was upset to have been the last of the group to know, but he was just relieved that his friend was as ok as someone could be in this situation. Kayla's parents were horrified at the news, but didn't limit Kayla to what she could do because they didn't want her to feel any worse than she already did. They let her do what made her feel comfortable. Jett and Kayla officially became a couple. They were both really satisfied being together. Many thought of them as an odd pair, but for some reason, they worked. He was the huge star, and she was the small town farm girl that didn't care at all about all of that stuff. Heck, she could have been happier without it. She was still just supportive of Jett's endeavors and any decisions he made. They really did fit together.

The next year of high school, they grew up and matured. Before they knew it, it was time for senior prom. Kayla was so excited as was Jett. This was their first prom together since last year he had finished work late. Kayla decided to go big and elegant. She wore a red ball gown type dress with embroidery on the bodice and a little on the skirt. She wore really loose curls. Before she knew it, Jett was at the door. Wood, Jules, and Miz Corretta were all there as well because they didn't want to miss the big moment. "Oh Jett. You look so great! Come on in you all!" He looked super hott in his all black tuxedo and gator shoes. He had the corsage ready and waiting for his girlfriend.

Kayla finally emerged from the back of the room. Everyone dropped their jaws. "Wow…Kayla" Jett said. She looked down shyly with a smile. Jett swallowed and continued. "I am just speechless right now." Kayla laughed. "You look…great, Jett." They just stared at each other for a while and then remembered it was flower time. He put on her corsage and she put on his buttoner. Then it was picture time. They posed together just as everyone asked. Jett felt like he was on the red carpet or something, then he saw the limo arrive from the window. "Well, we have to get going because if we stay here any longer, prom will be over." He said to everyone. They headed out after giving hugs and kisses to everyone. The approached the limo and he let her get in like the gentleman that he is. Kayla's house was the first stop, after that, it went to pick up the rest of the gang at their houses.

Before they arrived to the next house, Jett had a surprise for Kayla. "Sooo, I was in the store and ended up walking by the jewelry department and I saw something that I couldn't resist getting for you." He said as he pulled a couple of jewelry boxes out of his pockets. One was large and the other was smaller, but long. Kayla frowned with curiosity as she took the boxes. She opened the skinner, longer one and gasped as she saw a diamond bracelet inside. "JETT, you should have."

"No, I HAD to. I just looked at it and saw you. Go ahead. Open the other one." He said as she did just that while shaking her head. The larger box revealed a matching necklace. She just shook her head. "Well, since you insisted on getting me these, I guess you can put them on." She held out her wrist and he took the bracelet and put it on. She then turned her back to him as he took the necklace and placed it on her slowly. He then gently and slowly ran his hand down her back and then placed both hands on her shoulders. It all felt really comfortable for them both. She turned around and kissed him deeply. Before they knew it, they were at the next house. JB and Holly got in the car. Then it went to Riley's house where Baxter and Riley got in, then it was off to the hotel.

It was almost like a repeat of the ball a year ago, but everyone was more mature and had more extravagant dresses on. Riley wore a green gown that looked great on her, while Holly switched from pink to navy blue. If at the ball they looked like a million dollars, tonight, they looked like a billion dollars. Since Prom was at a hotel ballroom this time, so there was a little more of a ride to get to the place. Everyone just chatted until they got to Prom. Their limo arrived and they made their entrance. The room was gorgeous being dimly lit with punch fountains all over the place and gourmet food. They all sat at the table and ate for a while. The meal of the night was chicken cordon bleu with mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes. Then for desert there were little fancy cakes with interesting designed on them for icing. Since prom wasn't all about the food, everybody decided to then get up and dance.

JB showed why he won the dance contest once again. Since Baxter wasn't a very good dancer, he didn't do too much but that didn't stop riley from getting her groove on. Jett and Kayla were having a ball doing old dances as well as new. He dipped her a time or two and she even decided to dip him which made everybody laugh. You would think that it would be weird to see people dancing like they were in evening gowns, but since everybody was, then it was no big deal. All of a sudden an announcer headed to the front of the room where the band was. "Alright everybody. It's time to announce the King and Queen." Everybody's eyes were at the front. "Your king is…" he opened the envelope, "Jett Jackson! Ok it's not over. The queen is…" he opened another "your class president, Kayla West!" Kayla was totally surprised. They both went up to receive their crowns. She wasn't the "Prom Queen" type, but those who voted for her claimed that since she was president and she ruled anyways, so it should just be official that she's queen. Ok, thanks to the Prom King, we have a special guest here to perform for you and since he was just announced King, now is the best time to bring her out. Ladies and gentlemen, ALICIA KEYS!" She came out to loud roars of surprise, sat and a piano and started to play. Kayla was totally floored by what Jett had done. "It just never ends with you does it?" She said firmly. "Of course not." He smirked as he took her hand and they hit the dance floor.

Some people live for the fortune
Some people live just for the fame
Some people live for the power yeah
Some people live just to play the game
Some people think that the physical things
Define what's within
I've been there before
But that life's a bore
So full of the superficial

Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you

Some people search for a fountain
Promises forever young
Some people need three dozen roses
And that's the only way to prove you love them

Hand me a world on a silver platter
And what good would it be?
No one to share, no one who truly cares for me

Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you

Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you

If I ain't got you with me baby
Nothing in this whole wide world don't mean a thing
If I ain't got you with me baby

They danced so happily and so into each other and the moment. "Why this song, Jett?" Kayla asked. "Because I think of the lyrics and think about how that's what I feel for you. I love you more than you could ever know." Kayla's eyes started to water up and she sighed. "You know, I love you too. These lyrics really are right on." They kissed once again and the rest of the class joined the floor in dancing as the song began to change. They danced the night away…

A/N: No, it still is not yet over. Sorry for the delay, but work has been keeping me busy busy busy. Don't worry, consider this story as good as finished. I've gotten this far so it's no way I'm going to stop now. What good would that be? Still got at least one more chapter for you, so stay tuned.
