Hey guys. So here I am with another ff. This idea has been bugging me for some time now and I don't know how far I'll go with it, I just had to write it out and see how you all like it. Anyways, let me know if I should continue. It's a little foggy now but it'll clear up.

I don't own anything of Instant Star or the song. This ff is based on the song "Stay with me" by Danity Kane.

Let me know how you all like it.

The echoes of the screams vibrated throughout the filled stadium. SME stepped on stage on last time for the night. The roars only became more demanding, the anticipation only more challenging to ignore. Green smoke escaped the bottom part of the stage as everything died down. All the noise was drowned out when Speed hit the string on his guitar and began playing his solo. After a few minutes, Wally hit the drums as Speed and the guys grinned from ear to ear. The smoke lifted higher in the air as the stage opened up in the center and was raised to the top, for everyone to see.

Jude Harrison sat on a stool, only a microphone in her hand. Her blonde hair was sticking to her dark and gloomy face, matching her clothes. She looked at Speed whose smile quickly left his face and he signaled for the rest of the guys to get ready. Jude closed her eyes, letting the noise sink in one last time.

Jude: "This is a new one." She said into the mic. Everyone calmed down as the piano began to play in the background. The green laser lights stopped beaming and the smoke disappeared. Everything got quiet. Jude positioned herself comfortably on the stool and raised the mic to her lips.

"Raindrops, fall from, everywhere
I reach out, for you, but you're not there
So I stood, waiting, in the dark
With your picture, in my hands
Story of a broken heart
"

She sang softly to the crowed. Her eyes remained closed as Speed's guitar gently joined in with the piano. She could hear the fans screaming again. Instead of responding to everything around her, she masked the racket and let her voice take over.

"Stay with me
Don't let Me go,
Cause I can't be without you.
Just stay with me
And hold me close
Because I've built my world around you.
And I don't wanna know what's it like without you
So stay with me
Just stay with me
."

She sang as Wally hit the drums hard. The beat picked up a little as Jude opened her eyes. She looked out at the screaming crowd. Her head quickly shot to Speed when she noticed how the girls were responding to her lyrics. Speed's fingers ran over the cords as he smiled at her caringly. She turned towards the crowed once more.

"I'm trying and hoping, for the day
when my touch is enough
to take the pain away,
Cause I've searched for so long
the answer is clear
I will be OK if we don't let it disappear
.

Stay with me
Don't let Me go,
Cause I can't be without you.
Just stay with me
And hold me close
Because I've built my world around you.
And I don't wanna know what's it like without you
So stay with me
Just stay with me
."

She let her voice die. The piano came to a complete stop. Jude scanned the crowd. They were screaming. Some of the girls actually were crying. All of a sudden she felt Speed's presence next to her as he took her hand in his. She held tight while Wally was shinning with his drum solo. When the last stick finally hit the instrument, Speed dropped Jude's hand and let his fingers dance again. Jude knew it was time for the final goodbye.

"I've searched over and over
so many times for you and I,

is like those stars that light the sky every night
Our picture hangs out of tune
reminding me of the days
You promised me we'd always
be and would never go away
that's why I need you to stay
."

She sang full of emotion into the mic. The hoarseness was easy to detect. She looked at Speed for permission, maybe even help to go on. He looked at her with his eyes full of love for her. She smiled and closed her eyes one last time.

"Stay with me
Don't let Me go,
Cause I can't be without you.
Just stay with me
And hold me close
Because I've built my world around you.
And I don't wanna know what's it like without you
So stay with me
Just stay with me
."

Her voice sounded raw. She hummed into the mic, eyes still closed.

"Oooo.. oh
don't leave
so I stay waiting in the dark...
"

She finished as her voice faded out. She opened her eyes to the screaming fans. Turning to Speed she smiled and nodded. He smiled back at her knowing what she was thinking. He nodded in appreciated. Appreciation for her, the woman she had become.

Jude: "Thank you." She whispered more to Speed than to the fans, and walked off stage.
