This is my newest story that I'm working on. I've got about 11 chapters typed out already and I'm actually going to finish this one. Lol.
This story takes places right at the beginning of "Hey Sister". Tommy tells Jude that he's leaving and won't be her producer any more, only in my version, he actually leaves. It's a pretty big roller coaster ride for Tommy and Jude. In fact, I'd venture to say that my readers will probably get rather frustrated in the beginning chapters.
But, rest assured, this is definitely a "Jommy". I can't do it any other way. Hehe.
Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this story! I've certainly had fun writing it, so please, let me know what you think! I love reading reviews! They seriously make my day.
Prologue (Three Years Ago)
"You're leaving?" she asked indignantly.
He looked back at her and shrugged as if it were no big deal. "I'm strictly free-lance here. I can go any time."
"But why now?"
They reached the set of stairs and leaned against the blue metal railings for a second while Tommy looked as though he were struggling to get whatever it was he needed to say out. He sighed. "I need a vacation. I thought I'd kick it around Montreal for a while."
"So you're just gonna bail on me? Tommy, we have a single to write and we have to do it fast."
"And you will. Just not with me. You've got a new producer, starting next week."
And that was that. She had even tried to get him to agree to write one last song with her to see how it went and he refused.
The week was winding down and his leave date was drawing agonizingly nearer. No matter what she did or said, it wouldn't work. He was really leaving.
Georgia had decided to throw Tommy a going-away party of sorts and the staff was required to be there. Well, just because she had to be in the building didn't mean she had to be where the party was.
So she holed herself up in Studio C to start working on lyrics. She had successfully managed to only see Tommy once so far and she was hoping it would stay that way.
"Has anybody seen Jude? I've only seen her once the entire night," Tommy asked casually.
EJ nodded her head as she took a sip of her drink. "Studio C."
His eyes narrowed. She only ever went in there when she was deliberately trying to avoid people. He sighed and nodded a brief thanks to EJ and started to make his way to Studio C.
The oddest feeling came over him, though, as he stood in front of the door. His hand was raised and ready to knock but, for some reason, he couldn't do it. Maybe it would be better this way. Maybe he should just leave without saying goodbye. Clearly she didn't want to see him, anyway.
He un-fisted his hand and let his fingers trail down the length of the door. The feeling of the cold wood came in contact with his forehead as he rested it against the door. He sighed, shook his head, and walked away.
It was better this way. No fights, no long-drawn out goodbyes, no last minute attempts at trying to persuade him to stay.
He turned back towards the door and closed his eyes tightly. "Goodbye, Jude."
