Chapter 15: The Good Always Overcomes The Drama
A/N: Thanks to all of you that were here from the beginning of my story. I have personal reviews at the bottom.
Miley just looked out of the window as she sat in the cop car. She stared at the darkness and tried to focus on other things other then her moving. She sighed as she wondered what Nick was doing.
"We are going to stop at a hotel right up the block for the night." The cop who was driving them instructed as he looked in is mirror.
"How much will it cost? Because I have to pay for two plane tickets and I quit my job a month a half ago and I am pretty low on cash."
"We called in a favor with the police commissioner of this town. He told us we could stay at this hotel for free for this one night. However tomorrow we have to be out by ten o'clock."
"Great, I have a six o'clock flight to North Dakota the day after tomorrow. Then we can start out new lives." She smiled as she thought about her life away from all of the drama.
"Our lives won't be new mom. We are just going to go up there and live a lie."
"What was that little girl?" Mary-Anne was completely surprised by Miley's comment. She doesn't know what has gotten into her daughter the past couple of months, but she doesn't like it.
"I am not a little girl and you heard me. You are going to go up there and find some new guy. Forget all about daddy and trying to get him better. You'll probably end up sending him divorce papers."
"I thought that's what you wanted. I thought you wanted to get away from your father's drunken ass. That was the only reason why I thought of this whole thing."
"After that fight at school I didn't mean for us to move. I just wanted you to try to fix him. You are the love of his life you can make him do anything. But instead of helping him you are running away from him." She replied, as she looked at her mother face to face. Looking out the window was getting boring.
Something was different about her daughter. She looked more like a little woman instead of the teenager she was when she left. "I have kids to think about. Maybe if it were just me and your dad it would be different."
"No it wouldn't have. You still would have cheated on dad."
"It's not about your dad or our marriage. It's about you and your sister. Right now I have to do whatever I can as the mother to protect you."
"You can do that here. Dad will change I know he will. But he needs us here to do that. What if we stay a little longer? Until after this school year is over?"
"I would consider it, but I already called up the school to transfer your things to the other school. You are supposed to start next week."
"Just call them and tell them you've decided to stay." She pleaded.
"I quiet my job. So if I said yes to us staying we would have no source of income. We would end up living in the streets."
"You could look for a job."
"Where are we going to stay until then?"
"I'm sure the Jonas' would be glad to let us stay with them for a while. We could crash out in their living room. They have a lot of space on their living room."
"No way!" She shook her head no. "There is no way in hell we are staying with your boyfriend." She also wasn't going to stay because of what had happened between her and Lyle. She knew that Joe would give her the cold shoulder or worse.
Miley knew the sound of her voice meant that was the final decision. She sat back in her seat and sighed. She really didn't want to leave Nick. She wanted to be with him forever.
Mary-Anne watched as her daughter pouted. She started to play with her daughters hair again as she said soothingly, "I know that you love him."
"How could you?" Her voice cracked as she asked her mom.
"I felt the same way about my first love. But, things change. I know you expect Nick to be your husband and you to spend the rest of your life with him…"
"I just want to at least try to."
"But he is your high school sweetheart. There will be plenty of guys in North Dakota and once you go off to college it'll be like he was just a dream."
"Mom, I really do love him. And I hope that one day we really do get married."
"I know sweetie. Like I said there will be other boys. Even if you guys did stay together ling enough for you two to get married…do you know how many teenage marriages work?"
"No", she responded shyly.
"For every one that survives. There are about two hundred that don't. It's better off if you two just leave now. While you're still young. Then wake up one morning when you're older and saying 'Why did I settle so young?' and you end up cheating."
"What makes you the expert on this?"
"Well, your father was my high school sweetheart. And don't get me wrong I still love your father and I will always be thankful to him for giving me you and Kayla. It's just sometimes I wish that I would have waited before I married him."
"I thought you two got married when you were…?"
"We got married when I was fifteen. After your grandmothers found out they quickly got it annulled. Then we got remarried when I was eighteen, when out parents couldn't do anything about it."
"Mom, you were only two years older than I am now. What would make you want to marry dad so young?"
"Well, he was always so sweet and he had a good career going for him for a while. I had just gotten out of high school when we got married. He was in his second year of college. We struggled for two years while he was in college. I worked dead end jobs. He got his career and I always wanted to go to college, but then I had you."
"I thought daddy was five years older than you?"
"He is, but her got left back a few times in high school. He was always the class clown." She laughed remembering her freshmen year when she met him. He was a senior.
"But I believe me and Nick really can make it. He's not going to turn into an alcoholic like dad."
"Let's say he wakes up one day and regrets it."
"Mom, I don't care what you say. I am going to be with Nicholas Jerry Jonas for the rest of my life. I love him and he loves me. All I need you to do is let me stay here."
"No way in hell that my oldest daughter is staying here while I move in with my mother. You are going with me and that's the end of that. I don't want to hear another word about us moving or you and Nick."
"But mom…" She groaned.
"Miley Hope Cyrus. Say another word and I am warning you." She pointed her index finger as she bounced it up and down.
Miley rolled her eyes and sighed as she looked back out at the window. It was pitch black still.
"I know that you were mad at me because of your mother. But you running away with Miley was not the way to go by being mad at me."
"I was mad, but I also didn't want her to move. Dad, I really love her."
"Just like Kevin loved Jenna and. Or like Joe loved Anna."
"I am not Kevin or Joe. I know that most first loves never last forever, but the least I can do is try with Miley. At least Kevin and Joe got to decide weather or not they wanted to break the relationship off. We just have to go our separate ways."
Lyle sat back and didn't say a word. He knew that your first love was always the hardest to get over. He remembered his. Her name was Francesca Mutashini.
"We are going to stop at this hotel up the road." The cop who had been driving them had told them.
Lyle stopped daydreaming and looked at the officer. "Why can't we just sleep in the car?"
"Because I was instructed to drive you and your son all the way home. I am tired and the hotel room is free. So we are going to stop at this hotel."
"Okay", he said once he heard the word free. He didn't care about anything else. He took his phone out and called the house.
"Hello?" He heard somebody answer out of breath.
"Joe, Who is this?"
"It's dad. How is everything at home?"
"Great." He smiled as he spooned with Mimi. "I fed Frankie and Mimi out him to bed. Kevin called and we talked for a while. I was just getting ready for bed as we speak."
"That's great. Did Frankie give you any trouble?"
"Yeah, but it is my fault. I gave him candy after dinner for desert." He confessed as he looked at Mimi. She was moving around impatiently.
"I'm surprised Mimi was able to get him to sleep after that." Lyle replied laughing. "Did you get what you wanted to get done?"
"Yes, me and Mimi are officially boyfriend and girlfriend." He told him proudly.
"Should I be worried about leaving you two in the house without adult supervision?"
"No, I have decided to wait until I get to know my girlfriends for at least a year and a half before I have sex with them." He had never told his dad about Anna and her abortion. He already knew that if he did he might be in trouble.
"After your break up with Anna you have been really mature." He pointed out. "Did something happen that I don't know about?"
"No, she was my first love. Our break up was hard and I just don't want to get my heart broken again. Anyway did you find Nick?"
"Yes, he is in the car right next to me. I would let you talk to him, but he is to upset about Miley."
"So I guess you haven't told him about you and Miley's mom?"
"No, and I don't intend to." He watched as they pulled up into the hotel. "Well, I have to go. We are going to spend the night at a hotel. We should be back once Frankie gets home from school tomorrow."
"Okay, thanks for calling, bye."
"Your welcome, bye." He flipped his cell phone shut and put it back in his pocket. He got out of the cop car and felt as if he was a criminal. Everybody looked at him as if they were better then him.
Joe pressed the off button on the house phone and put it on the charger that was on top if his nightstand. He smiled as he kissed Mimi's lips again. They hadn't stopped kissing since their first one.
"I love your lips." She told him in between each small kiss.
"I love yours too." He smiled as he said that to her. He didn't know what kind of flavor they were, but whatever it was it worked for her.
She stopped kissing him trying to catch her breath. "Shouldn't you check on Frankie?"
"I should, but he should be fine. He usually sleeps through the night and only wakes up when he needs to go to the bathroom."
"He's fine. A bit heart broken. He just broke up with his first love." He replied sadly. "I really liked Miley."
"Why did they break up?"
"She is moving. That lady that we caught my father with was her mother. She loves next door."
"So that's why that Uhal truck is out there?"
"Yeah, now let's get back to kissing." Joe said as he pulled Mimi's body closer to his and started to kiss her again.
Mimi was enjoying every moment of it until she thought about something. "Where am I going to sleep once Nick comes back?" She pulled away from him and asked.
Joe pondered the question a bit. He hadn't really thought about that. "Well, Nick could just sleep with Frankie and you can keep Nick's room."
"What if he doesn't agree with that?"
"Well, then you can sleep in here with me." He responded as he leaned in to kiss her some more.
She giggled as she pushed him away. "Come on be serious, now. Like your father is going to ever let that happen."
"Fine, if you want I will sleep on the couch every night and you can take my bed." He told her as he looked at her up and down.
"No, I won't let me kick you out of your own bed at night. You guys can stay where you are I'll just sleep on the couch."
"Are you sure? Because I will be more than happy to give up my bed for you."
'I am more than sure. You have already done so much for me." She told him as she kissed him on the lips.
Miley looked at her mother who was sound asleep right next to her in the queen-sized bed. She moved around on the bed to make sure that her mother was sleeping hard enough for her to sneak out. She didn't say anything so she got out of the bed.
"Where are you going?" Her mom asked groggily.
"I was just going to go get some snacks from the gift shop downstairs." She lied.
"You got your own money?" Her voice was still groggy and her eyes were not open.
"Yes", Miley was smiling inside. She couldn't believe how easy it was for her to pull one over on her mother.
"You better be back in the next five minutes or I am calling hotel security." Her mother warned as she flipped on her other side and began to snore.
She didn't respond. She just made a mad dash to the door. She was not going to give her mom enough time to change her mind. She walked out of the hotel room and went over to the elevator. When it stopped and opened up Nick was standing there waiting for her.
She smiled and it took a lot of strength for her not to scream. She hugged him and kissed him on his cheek.
"I missed you so much." He told her as he held her. He rested his hands under her butt. He was sad once she had let go and looked at him sadly.
"We are definitely moving the day after tomorrow. I asked my mom if we could stay and live with you until we get back on our feet, but she said there was no way she was going to let me stay with my boyfriend."
"Yeah, I tried to talk to my dad about you too. He told me that your first love never really works out."
"My mom was saying the same thing about your 'high school sweetheart'. She said that even if we did last long enough to get married, our marriage wouldn't even work."
"They don't know what they are talking about we are going to be great together." Nick reassured her as the elevator came to a stop and they were on the lobby floor.
"So how'd you get out?" Miley asked as she went over to the gift shop and picked out some candy.
"I just snuck out. My dad is a hard sleeper. Why? How'd you get out?"
"I tried to do the whole sneaking out thing and my mom caught me. I told her that I was going to the gift shop for a snack."
"Technically you didn't lie because we are at the gift shop." Nick responded as he watched Miley pay for the Snickers.
"Yeah", she replied as she took the bag from the cashier. "So where do you want to go to say our last good-bye's?"
He looked at her sadly. A few months ago he barley knew this girl. She was just some smart girl in his AP English class. Now he doesn't know what he's going to do without her. "Somewhere where there aren't any security cameras?"
"There is a supply closet where all of the maids get all of there cleaning products from." Miley suggested. "I am sure they don't have security cameras in there."
"Probably not, but how are we going to get in there? I am pretty sure that they have that placed locked."
"For what reason? Who is going to go in there and still cleaning products?" She laughed at the thought.
Nick chuckled and said, "Your right. We can try it out." He followed her to the supply closet and surprisingly enough it was open.
Miley sat on a box that read "Rags". She started to sob. "This is going to be our last time seeing each other."
He rubbed her back in a circular motion. "Don't cry. I hate it when you cry. You know my number and I will always love you. I won't even look at another girl while you're away."
"You know that you are lying. You will be here all alone for the next two years?"
"After what we had. Nothing and nobody will be able to even come close to it. So why even bother?"
"Because I love you and I want you to be happy. After I am gone, I want you to date other people."
Nick was done with this conversation. He just wanted to kiss those pretty lips of hers again. He leaned in and didn't even hesitate.
She was taken aback by the passion in the kiss. She let it continue. She wanted to kiss him forever. She never wanted him to stop. This way she could miss her flight and stay here with him in this perfect moment.
He began to feel her pull away. "What's wrong?" He asked as he looked at her.
"I have to go. My mom told me that I had to be back at the room in five minutes or hotel security would come and find me."
"Wait!" His voice cracked as he almost watched her leave the room. When she turned around he put his hand on her cheek. "I believe that we were meant to be. No matter what you are going to be in my heart."
She was so close to tears. "Please, don't make this harder than this already is." She put her nose on his pointy one and looked deeply into his brown eyes. "I love you".
He kissed her on the lips and said, "Me too."
She pulled away and looked at him. "I need to see you smile."
"So I can remember you as the happy go-lucky Nick I love. Just please smile foe me?"
He forced a smile on his face. It was hard since he was feeling so sad right now. His first love was about to leave him.
She smiled and looked at him. That was the smile that warmed her heart. Whenever she saw it, it made her smile. She felt a tear run down her face. "Bye" she cried.
"Good bye", he responded. His smile was now faded. He watched as she left. It was weird how even the back of her body made chills go down his smile.
Nick was now more then depressed. He took the card and slipped it to unlock the door of the hotel room. When he entered the pitch dark room soon turned bright.
"Where the hell were you?" His dad asked as he sat on the bed.
"I went to the gift shop for some candy." He responded not enthusiastic about this conversation at all. He was already feeling bad that his girlfriend was leaving him.
"So where's the candy?"
"I decided not to get any."
"Who were you with?"
"What is this? Am I on trial?" He asked defensively.
"Yes, I am Judge Lyle Jonas. Now who the hell were you with?"
"I was with me, myself, and I. Like I am going to be for the rest of my life because Miley is leaving me!" He screamed.
Lyle sighed and looked at his son. "Let's just let this go. We'll go to sleep, wake up in the morning, and pretend like this never happened."
"Sure," Nick was all for this. He took a blanket off of the bed and went over to a chair near the window.
"Why are you sleeping over there?"
"No offense dad, but you are one heavy sleepier. I am afraid that if I sleep in that bed with you. You might roll over and suffocate me." He chuckled at his own joke.
"Hey, I slept with your mother for over twenty years and she never complained about my sleeping."
"Are you sure? Because I remember you having to sleep on the couch a lot when I was little."
"Yeah, well you sleep over there if you want."
"I will", he replied quietly as he moved around on the chair to find a comfortable position.
The Next Day:
Kevin had just gotten out of his last class of the day. He quickly flipped open his phone that he had just put minutes on.
"Hello, Shelby? This is Kevin."
"Kevin?" She questioned.
"Yeah, Kevin Jonas. We met at study hall yesterday, you gave me your number." He played along with her.
"Right, What do you want?"
"I was just wondering if you would like to go out for dinner tonight. There's this place off campus named "Kilo's".
"I know what you are talking about. It's a few blocks down."
"So do you want to go with me?"
"Sure, why not? I have nothing better to do." She replied as if she wasn't excited, but deep down she was ecstatic.
"Okay, I'll pick you up around seven?"
"Sounds great. I'll talk to you then."
As soon as the phone call said End Shelby screamed. She was getting looks from her classmates. She walked back in her class with a smile on her face. She was so happy that she got her man back.
For some odd reason Nick thought that he was going to have a big party or something when he walked into his house. However it just looked the same as when he left it. Just maybe a little cleaner.
"Go up to your room and put the rest of your stuff back in your drawers. Then come down for your beating."
Nick sighed, he had forgotten all about his beating. He pulled suitcase up the steps. He walked into his room and looked around. It smelled like the body wash his mom used to put on. Then he went to put his clothes in the drawer and there was a tube-top. "Dad?" Nick screamed.
A couple of seconds later Lyle appeared in his sons' threshold. "What is it son?" He looked at his son who held up the tube-top.
"What is this?"
"Who the hell is that?"
"Joe's new girlfriend. She didn't have a place to live so Joe invited her to stay here. She has been staying in your room since you left."
"So she's not your girlfriend?"
"No, I haven't dated since your mom died." He replied shyly. He wasn't going to tell his son about what happened with Mary-Anne.
"What did she take my place in this house?"
"There is no way in heaven or earth that anybody could take the place of you. She is just staying here for a while."
"So where am I sleeping tonight?"
"On your bed. I am sure that Joe had Mimi have figured something out."
"Is her real name Mimi?"
"No, it's Mistisha. But, please call her Mimi."
"How old is she?"
"17 going on 18. She is a senior in high school."
Nick nodded his head in approval. "I guess she can keep some of her clothes in my drawers.
"That's the Nick that I know. Now, are you ready for your beating?"
"Am I ever?" He asked as he walked downstairs and looked at his father with the belt in his hand.
Mary-Anne put the light on in the house. "Go upstairs and put the rest of your clothes in the Uhaul truck."
Miley nodded her head and went up the stairs to her room.
Mary-Anne went into her room and was completely shocked. She caught her breath as she leaned against the wall. "What…. How…Where…" She had so many questions that she wanted to ask.
"Where do you think you and my kids are going?" Robby Ray asked as he got off of the bed.
"We are going to my mothers. I can't stay here while you are like you are." She replied leaving her room.
"Where are you going I am not done talking to you?"
"Well, I am done talking to you. I want out of this marriage. I will send you the divorce papers once I get to my mothers."
"Wait, we have to talk about this."
She stopped in front of the kitchen. "You have had almost a year to talk to me, but instead you wanted to be drunk all the time."
"I stopped drinking." He told her running his hand through his gray hair.
"You expect me to believe that you just stopped?"
"I went to AA. I even went to a rehab thing for people with drinking problems. That was where I was for this whole month. I have been clean for seven weeks."
"Really?" Mary-Anne asked.
"Yeah, and I want to start over. I want to be with you and our kids."
"So just because you have been sober for seven weeks you expect me to forgive you? Do you know how much shit you put me and your kids through? I can't just forgive you like that."
"Why not? We have been through so much together. Why do you want to give it up so badly?"
"Because I was right out of high school when we got married. I was fourteen when we fell in love. I have never been with anybody else. I just want to go and experience life."
"Mary-Anne please don't do this. Please, you can experience life with me here. I will let you cheat on me. Just stay here with the kids."
"Here? We don't have a here. I quit my job a month back. We have no source of income."
"I applied for a couple of positions at some really big companies. I should be getting calls any day know. It'll be rough, but we can make it through."
"I am tired of it being rough!" She screamed in anger. "Why can't it ever be easy? I just want to go to my mothers and not have to worry about anything."
"You can't take my kids away from me. I will sue you for them."
"And all I have to do is say you are a recovering alcoholic. Then I can show the judge all of Miley's hospital bills from when you put them there. Tell me what you are going to do then?"
He had nothing to say. "Fine, if you are so miserable with me then just leave."
"I plan to today." She told him as she moved past him and went back into her room.
Little did anybody know that Miley was upstairs listening to the whole conversation? She heard her dad's soft sobs. She walked down stairs and sat next to him on the couch. "I believe that you changed."
Robby Ray quickly wiped his tears. "You know that I love you and never meant to physically hurt you. I was just always so depressed."
"I know and just like you turned to alcohol when things got rough, mommy is running away."
"We weren't ready to get married at such a young age. We should have waited a little longer. I never thought we could be this miserable."
Miley rubbed her dads back. "I don't want to move. I want to stay here and live with you."
"No way in the world your mother is going to let me stay here with you."
"Why not? You are my father aren't you?"
"Yes, I am. But the things that I have done in my past could come back to me if I do take your mother to court. Just go with her and I will try to persuade her to let me see you guys during the holidays and breaks."
"But dad I like it here. North Dakota is so boring." Miley whined.
"Miley, please. Just do as me and your mother say." He told her as he kissed the top of her head. "I love you kiddo."
Miley almost cried from happiness. She couldn't remember the last time her father had kissed her. She dug her head into his chest and sobbed. "Daddy, I really missed you."
"I missed me too and I am so proud of you." He sobbed.
"Miley we have to go. The plane will be here soon." Mary-Anne interrupted the father-daughter moment.
"No, I don't wanna go." Miley cried hugging her father.
Robby Ray held on to his little girl. Then he backed away "Go with your mother. Call me when you get there."
"Daddy, I want to stay here with you."
"Miley Hope Cyrus do what I told you and go with your mother."
Miley let go of her father and went back up the stairs to get the rest of her stuff to throw into the Uhaul truck.
Kevin laughed as he walked into his dorm. Shelby followed him laughing as well. "I can't believe that old ladies wig fell off." Shelby continued to laugh as she thought about it.
"The funny part was when it fell into that ladies soup." Kevin laughed as well. He went over to Ralph's side of the room and too the letter off of his bed. He opened it and read it. "Looks like Ralph will be out all night." He told Shelby as she sat on his bed.
"Really? Who is Ralph?"
Kevin had forgotten that they were starting all over again. "He is my roommate. When you meet him I have to tell you that he's gay."
"You have a gay roommate?"
"Yes, and surprisingly enough he is kind of a great roommate. He makes me laugh and he cleans."
"I wish I had that kind of roommate. All mine does is party, sleep, and eats." She smiled as she thought of her roommate.
"So, what do you want to do now?" Kevin asked as he sat next to her on the bed.
"Well, we can have our first kiss. So when I go back to my dorm I can call up my best friend back home and we can rate you."
"You rate the guys that you kiss?"
"Yes, because if you are a bad kisser we can't have another date. I just hate bad kissers."
"How very superficial of you." He said as if he was warning her.
"Sorry, I am trying to work on that."
Kevin leaned in and kissed her for the pretend first time. She was wearing some type of expensive perfume that made her body smell irresistible. He started kissing on her neck.
She pulled away, "What are you doing?"
"Sorry, I just thought that you wanted to…"
"I don't have sex on the first date."
"I should have known that. You just smelled so…Never mind. I am sorry if I have offended you in any way."
"You didn't let me finish. I don't have sex on the first date with anybody except if your name is Kevin Jonas."
"Well, isn't that funny because my name happens to be Kevin Jonas."
Shelby smiled as she laid back on the bed and Kevin began to kiss her. She giggled as his hands made there way around her tight dress.
"Miley let's go! The taxi is waiting to take us to the airport." Mary-Anne screamed while she was outside.
"Bye, daddy. I love you." Miley said as she hugged him.
"I love you two baby girl. Be good for your mom and grandmother." He instructed her as stopped hugging her and let her go.
"And make sure that you say hello to Kayla for me." He told her as she continued to walk away and out the front door.
"Don't worry I will."
He watched as his wife and oldest daughter left the house. As the taxi pulled away he couldn't help but let the tears fall. Look what his drinking did to his family.
Miley stopped staring once she could no longer see her house or Nick's. She turned over to look at her mother who was smiling happily. "You know dad has changed right?"
"It's to late. If he really loved us he would have stopped a long time ago."
"I thought you said he was your first love. How can you do this to him?"
"How could he drink this family to smithereens? Stop, acting like I am the bad guy. I have done everything for this family and I deserve to be catered too." She screamed.
"You are the mother. Nobody ever said that being a wife or mother would be easy. You chose this life for yourself."
"I never chose to get pregnant with you or Kayla. It just happened. Don't get me wrong I love you both, but if it wasn't for you guys your father and I wouldn't have lasted that long."
"So that's it? You are giving up on a guy that you have loved since you were fourteen? You are going to runaway every time things get tough? No wonder why I ran away. I am just like you." She told her bitterly.
It hurt Mary-Anne to here her daughter talk about her like that. "You better stop with this prissy attitude missy."
"Or you're going to what?"
"Or I am going to…I'm going too." Mary-Anne couldn't think of anything.
Miley sat back in her seat and looked out the window. She had tried her hardest to stay and she finally had to give up. There was nothing she could do. She was leaving.
They pulled up to the airport in silence.
Nick looked at the clock as he sat on his bed. He heard a soft knock on the door. "Come in." He told whoever the person was.
Frankie opened the door and ran into his brothers' room. "You are home!" He screamed as he jumped on top of Nick.
Nick laughed as he began to wrestle with Frankie. Then there was another knock on the door. "Come in." He screamed while he through Frankie on his bed.
Joe entered and jumped into the fight. "You're home!" He screamed as he piled on top of both Nick and Frankie and started to beat them up.
Then there was another knock on the door. "Come in", he said again. A fine lady walked in with her curly brown hair in a ponytail.
Mimi laughed as she looked at all of the brothers fighting. She looked are Nick and knew it was him. She felt as though she knew him. "You must be Nick." She said taking out her hand.
"Yes and you must me Mimi." Nick replied as he shook her hand. "You are even more beautiful then my dad described you."
"Hey, you have Miley. Stay away from mine." Joe warned him as he got off of the bed and kissed Mimi on the cheek.
Nick looked back at the clock. "I don't have her anymore. She should be on the plane by now." Nick sighed.
"You do know you are hurting me! Frankie screamed.
Nick looked down. He had forgotten he was on top of Frankie. "Sorry", he told him as he got off.
There was another knock on the door. "You might as well come in, dad," Joe told him as he put his arm around Mimi's shoulder.
Lyle appeared in the room. "So since nobody wants to make dinner. I am guessing that we can go out to eat?" He looked around the room for the answer.
"Fine with me", Joe said satisfied with the question.
"So how about we go to that little dinner about two towns away?"
"The one with the waitress named Sally?" Frankie asked with a smile.
"Yeah, I think she'll be happy to see you Frankie." Nick was kind of making fun of him.
"So I guess it's decided? Why doesn't everybody go et ready?"
With the last comment everybody left the room except Nick. He went over to the window and looked at the house his girlfriend used to live in. Then he looked at the clock. "She's probably in the next state by now." He said sadly.
"Nick are you ready?" He heard Joe scream from downstairs.
He closed his blinds. "I'm on me way!" He screamed as he took his coat off of his dresser. He sighed again as he thought about not being able to see her again. He walked down the steps and saw his family smiling and laughing. "Can I come in on the joke?"
"You are the joke." Frankie told him as he continued to laugh.
"What is so funny about me?"
"It's nothing really." Lyle told him as he opened the front door.
Everybody got into the van. Lyle was in the drivers seat. Joe was in the passengers, Nick and Mimi were in the middle, and Frankie was in the back. As Lyle pulled out of the driveway he began to cough.
"Are you alright dad?" Joe asked as he patted his dad on the back.
Lyle moved his shoulders and stopped coughing. "I was chocking on my own spit." He replied.
"Mr. L watch out for that car!" Mimi screamed, but it was to late.
Everybody began to fly forward as the car smashed into another car.
Lyle began coughing again, but this time it was because of smoke. He looked up from the air bag. "Is everybody okay?" He asked looking around.
"I'm fine." Nick was the first to answer.
"Me too." Mimi answered next.
"I'm okay, daddy." Frankie replied in the back.
Lyle looked over to the right of him and began to shake Joe. "Joe, speak to me son."
"I'm fine dad. It's just my head hurts." He told his father groggily.
"Oh my god, Joe you are bleeding." Nick pointed out the obvious.
"It's alright son. Everybody get out the car!" He directed all of the others. "Joe you stay and here press this against your head to stop the bleeding." He gave him an old shirt that was just sitting around the van.
The rest of the people did as they were instructed. Mimi went away from the car and began to cry. What if Joe wasn't all right? She thought to herself as she worried.
Frankie came over and tapped on her leg. "He's going to be fine. My brother is a real tough cookie."
Mimi laughed and kissed Frankie on his forehead. "You are the best."
Nick looked at the car that his dad hit. It was a taxi. He was about to go and see who was in it when his dad came out of nowhere and started to knock on the window. "Do you know what you have just done?"
"Yes and I am calling the cops and ambulance right now."
"Do you have anybody hurt?"
"No everybody is fine. What about you?"
"I have an eighteen year old boy in there with a gash on his head. The bleeding has subsided but has not fully stopped."
"Oh god" The cab driver said. He looked at the people who were in the back. "You guys get out and make sure you are alright."
Nick couldn't help but feel wobbly in his legs as he watched Miley's mom get out of the cab. Then soon behind followed.
"Nick?" Miley screamed as she went over to him and jumped into his arms.
For a second he thought that he was dreaming. He kept holding on to her. "What are you doing here?" He asked.
"My mom decided to stay here. She decided to give my dad one more chance. He changed he got better. I am so happy to see you." She said in one breath and kissed him.
All of a sudden there were ambulance, police, and fire trucks around them.
Kevin was sleeping in his bed next to Shelby. It was only around nine at night, but he was exhausted from all of the sex.
Its you and me moving
At the speed of light into eternity yea,
Tonight is the night you
Join me in the middle of ecstasy,
Feel the melody in the rhythm of the
Music around you, around you
Ima take you there, Ima take you there
So don't be scared,
im right here baby
We can go anywhere, go anywhere
But first its yo chance,
Take my hand come with me
Kevin's ring tone went off. He moaned as he flipped his phone open. "Hello?"
"Kevin? This is Nick."
"Your home? What's up?"
"Yeah, I came home a few hours ago. We were going to go get dinner at this diner and we got into a car accident."
"What? Is everybody okay?"
"Well, almost everybody. Joe hit his head and got a really bad gash. We are at the hospital right now and dad is filling out paper work. He told me to call you."
"I will be on the next plane to Tennessee." He promised as he hung up the phone. He jumped out of the bed.
"What happened?" Mimi yawned as she asked.
"My whole family decided to go out for dinner and got into a car accident. Joe was injured and I think I should be there with them."
"Okay, have fun."
"Do you want to come?"
"No, I think I'll stay here and get your notes for you in all of your classes. You just go and make sure everything is fine."
"Thanks babe." Kevin said as he kissed her. He through on some clothes and dialed the airport.
"Southwester, how can I help you?"
"Hello, my name is Kevin Jonas. I currently live in New York and was wondering if you could tell me where the next flight to Tennessee is?"
"Our last flight is leaving in about half an hour."
"Are there anymore tickets available?"
"Yes, we have a few more."
"You're welcome and thanks for choosing Southwest Airlines."
He shut his phone and looked at what he was wearing. "This should be good enough to wear to Tennessee, right?"
"Sure, but what are you going to wear when you get there?"
"I have clothes back at home." He told her as he gave her a peck on the lips again. "I hate that we had sex and I have to leave like this, but my family calls. Um…Ralph shouldn't come until tomorrow so feel free to stay the night. Just lock up when you leave in the morning and I'll see you when I get back."
"It's alright. Okay and I can't wait for you to get back." She said with a smile while she watched him leave. She jumped on the bed started to screech. "I got my man back." She said out loud to herself.
Four Hours Later in The Hospital:
Miley was on Nick's lap falling asleep in his arms. She couldn't believe how her mother acted when it was time to get on the plane.
"I know that this is supposed to happen." Mary-Anne said to Miley.
Miley didn't reply because it felt as if she was talking to herself rather then her.
"I mean I know that I love him, but we have been through so much and I deserve to be happy." She continued.
"Mom, are you sure you want to do this?"
"What? Of course, I mean we already have these tickets. Your grandmother is waiting for us and the Uhaul truck is probably almost there with all of our stuff."
"Okay, if you say so." Miley smiled as she sat back.
"The next flight to North Dakota is now ready." The announcer said on the speakers at the airline.
"I guess that's our que to go." Mary-Anne said still sitting in her chair.
Miley got up and said, "Listen, are we going or not?"
"We are going." She told her daughter again sounding like she was trying to convince herself. She got up and went to the shuttle.
"Are you going, Ms.?"
"No, we aren't." Mary-Anne told the lady as she took Miley's hand started to leave.
Miley didn't say anything, but deep down inside she was beyond happy. Actually she was so happy she was about to cry.
"Kevin!" Nick said watching his brother enter the room.
Miley immediately got up once she heard him say that.
Nick stood up as well and gave his older brother a hug.
"So how is he?" Kevin asked putting his hands in his pockets and looking at his younger brother.
"He's fine. He had to get stitches and they want to keep him over night to make sure nothing goes wrong."
"Okay, well if you guys need I'll take you home and then come back here with dad?"
"I would love to go home." Nick replied getting sick and tired of this hospital.
Kevin looked around and saw Miley. "Hey, Miles." He said as he went over to her and hugged her. "I thought you were moving?"
"I was, but my mom decided to stay."
"Where is she?"
"She's at home with my father."
"Yeah, he is no longer an alcoholic. He went to AA meetings and has been sober for seven weeks."
"Well, do you need a ride home?"
"That would be nice." She said with a smile.
Kevin looked past Miley and saw that Frankie was sleeping on top of some lady.
Mimi held Frankie as she got off of the chair. "Hello, my name is Mimi."
"That's your real name?"
"No, my real name is Mistisha, but please just call me Mimi."
"Your Joe's girlfriend, right?"
"Yeah." She said as Frankie began to fidget.
Frankie woke up and looked at Mimi. "Where are we?" He asked as he looked around.
"We are still at the hospital."
Frankie yawned and turned around while rubbing his eyes. "Kevin!" Frankie screamed in excitement. "What are you doing here?"
"I had to come and check on my family." Kevin told him as he held out his arms. "Are you ready to go home?"
Frankie nodded his head vigorously and went into his oldest brother's arms. He put his head on his shoulders and began to fall asleep again.
"Do you want a ride home?"
"No, I think I'll stay here and check on Joe. But thanks for the offer."
Kevin nodded his head as he took the rest of the people to his car. He had taken a taxi back to the house and drove his car to the hospital.
Miley walked into her house and for the first time in a long time she heard noises that weren't fighting noises. She was getting groused out by the thought of her parents having sex so she quickly went into her room and shut the door.
She looked around and noticed that the room was totally empty. She had to wait for the Uhaul truck to get back here with their stuff. She sighed as she looked around. Where was she going to find something to go to sleep in?
She took the house phone and called the only number that she knew by heart. "Hello?"
"Hey, Kev. Can you put me on the phone with Nick?"
"Sure hold on."
"Hey, you guys wouldn't happen to have an old t-shirt of your mom's would you?" She asked biting her bottom lip.
"We should somewhere around here. But if we don't I am sure that Mimi would let you borrow something."
"Thanks, um…I am not aloud to leave the house. Since you know we ran away. So.."
"I'm not loud to leave either. I can ask Kevin if he can try to take something over there." Nick thought quickly.
"Okay, Thanks. I love you."
"I love you to baby."
Mimi awoke to a noisy woman screaming. She yawned and saw that the noisy woman was pregnant. She must have been in labor.
"Damn, girl you are still here?" Kevin asked as he walked in.
She nodded her head yes as she laughed.
"Have you seen Joe, yet?"
"They let me see him last night, but he was asleep. I just want to see him awake so I can know that everything is alright."
Lyle walked out and looked at Kevin and Mimi. "What are you guys doing here?"
"I just came from putting Frankie and Nick on the bus. I was just making sure Joe was okay."
"He's fine. He just has a horrible migraine."
"Can I see him?" Mimi asked as she got out of the chair.
"I guess so. I don't see why not." Lyle told her as he rubbed his eyes. "I have to get to work so if I were you I'd call a taxi to get to school."
Mimi nodded her head and walked into the room.
Joe thought he was going to die that was how bad his headache was. "MmmMmMm…" He moaned as a migraine hit him.
"Awww…Baby does it feel that bad?" Mimi asked as she entered the room and kissed his cheek.
"It feels a little better now that you're here."
"The doctor said that you should be leaving later on today. I am sure he will prescribe you some medicine for your headaches."
"I hope so because I can't take this much pain anymore." He said lowly.
"Guess who the people we hit were?"
"Miley and her mom coming back from the airport. Their not moving."
Joe couldn't believe that out of all people to get into a car accident with it had to be Miley and her mom.
"And Kevin came back from New York to help out while you are in the hospital."
"That's my older brother. Always here when you need him."
"Yeah, he is really cool. We haven't had much time to spend together though. I have been to worried about you."
Joe put out his arm and tried took Mimi's. "I am fine. I think you should get to school and I will be home when you get back."
"Are you sure? Because I can miss school so that I can stay here with you."
"I am so sure. Don't worry about me."
Mimi bent down and kissed Joe on the lips. "You better get better or else." She warned him as she giggled.
"Don't worry!" Joe screamed.
Later on That Day:
Everybody was in the living room watching a movie called, "Pirates of The Caribbean". When Kevin walked. "We now have the new and improved Joseph Jonas." Kevin gave a speech.
Joe walked in with a bandage over his stitches. And his face lit up once he saw all of the happy faces of the people he loved.
Mimi was the first to get up and hug him. "I am so happy that you are home." She cried not letting go of him.
"I told you that I was going to be fine." Joe told her as he held her in his arms.
Nick patted his brother on his shoulder. "Welcome home, bro."
Frankie still sat on the couch next to Miley. "Aren't you going to go say hi to your brother?" Miley asked.
"Why? He is going to be staying here forever. I am going to be able to see him whenever I want."
Miley laughed at the little boy. She got up and kissed Joe on the cheek. "Nice to see you."
"Good to see you too. I thought you were moving?"
"I was supposed to be, but my mom decided not to. I am surprised she even let me over here after what Nick and I did."
"I'm glad she did. It wouldn't feel like a family event if you weren't here." Kevin told her with a smile.
"Thanks, Kev." She said hitting him on the shoulder.
"So what are we watching?" Joe asked as he made his way over to the couch.
"Pirates of the Caribbean." Frankie told him.
"I got the food!" Lyle screamed as he walked into the house with three boxes of pizza. He put it on the coffee table and everybody began to dig in.
Frankie started the movie and Mimi and Miley began to talk about his cute Johnny Depp is even when he is dressed like a pirate.
I Don't know whether to put the sequel in the Hannah Montana category or the Camp Rock Category. I will choose by majority vote.
