Chapter 1: The Week of Final Jam

A/N This is my plot but I don't own any of the characters in the story.

Mitchie and Caitlyn had been practicing hard for Final Jam especially after becoming best friends. Mitchie realized that Tess was cruel when she told everyone including Shane about her lying about her mother. Shane was shocked and totally hurt he figured she just liked him for his fame and popularity but before it had been very different they had become the greatest of friends. She would actually listen to him and not judge him for being famous. He had been falling for her and falling hard.

"Mitchie are you alright?" Caitlyn asked her.

"No I messed up the supposed to be best summer of my life. I messed things up big time with Shane and now he won't even talk to me. I don't know what to do?" Mitchie said as they sat in the kitchen helping Connie clean up.

"Oh come on you'll knock him away at Final Jam and you know it. Come on lets go see if Jason and Nate are around. They understand," Caitlyn said as she dragged Mitchie off to see the guys.

Meanwhile Tess had been listening to everything Caitlyn had said and decided to ruin their chances on Final Jam so she planted her bracelet in their books so they could be blamed for taking in it. Little did she know that Shane had also heard everything and saw how broken up Mitchie was over their separation and he felt horrible. Shane also saw Tess put the bracelet in with the girls books and he wasn't all too pleased. But before he could do anything about it Tess had already convinced his Uncle.

"Nate can we talk with you about something?" Caitlyn asked him knowing he would do anything for her since they had started secretly dating last summer.

"Sure Cait. What do you guys need?" Nate asked in concern as he saw Mitchie's tear stained face. "On second thought I think I have a pretty good idea what this is about," Nate said looking directly at Mitchie.

"No Nate it's just about how mad is Shane really?" Caitlyn asked.

"Not that mad he's hurt more than anything and he doesn't understand why you needed to pretend to be something your not," Nate said.

"It's because I was a loner at school, well I have a friend named Sierra but that's it. My ex boyfriend betrayed me by cheating on me with my best friend and ever since I've been an outcast. I just wanted to be popular for once but I guess that no matter what I do I'll always be an outcast," Mitchie said before running away tears streaming down her face.

"Aww poor Mitchie I mean she's so nice and caring," Nate said with a sad smile on his face.

"I know, I better go catch up with her and practice. I'll meet you in our special spot later," Caitlyn said and Nate nodded before watching his girlfriend dash off after her friend.

Caitlyn finally found Mitchie back in the kitchen where she was writing by the looks of things and Caitlyn smiled.

As Caitlyn approached Mitchie, Tess and Brown came into the room and very loudly accused the girls of stealing her bracelet.

"I know they have it Brown," Tess yelled.

"Have what Tess?" Caitlyn snapped.

"My bracelet," Tess snapped back.

Brown took a look around and saw it lying in their things on the counter and sighed.

"I'm sorry girls but you won't be able to perform until the end of final jam," Brown said.

"But…" they began.

"Until the end of final jam," Brown said before leaving the kitchen.

Nate stood outside he couldn't believe what he had heard, how he was supposed to make Shane see that Mitchie is the girl with the voice, besides being his friend.

"This sucks Tess always wins doesn't she?" Mitchie asked Caitlyn.

"Seems that way," Caitlyn said but not before seeing Nate walk into the kitchen.

"No she won't win this time, Brown said you couldn't perform until the end of final jam which means as Connect 3 goes off to judge you start your song," Nate said.

"That's right Nate the end of Final Jam," Caitlyn said as she hugged Mitchie.

The rest of the week was busy preparing for final jam and the end of Camp. Mitchie was still way depressed because she missed her talks with Shane by the lake and Caitlyn usually went off for awhile by herself so she was alone again. She grabbed her things and went to sit down by the lake until she saw Shane and he saw her.

"I'm sorry I'll just go now," Mitchie said and Shane just nodded not saying a single word.

That night Mitchie watched Final Jam from beside the stage, staring at Shane thinking of how she missed talking with him. Peggy had just finished her solo song which surprised everyone and Brown was back on stage.

"And that's the end of Final Jam. Judges go off to do what you do best and judge," Brown said and that's when the music started in the background.

Brown went back to the side of the stage where he found Mitchie and Caitlyn standing there.

"You said the end of final jam and it's the end of final jam," Mitchie said with a hopeful smile.

"I was hoping you'd catch on. Go get'em poppet," Brown said as he left to talk with the judges.

Mitchie walked onto the stage with a small smile on her face.

I've always been the kind of girl

That hid my face

So afraid to tell the world

What I've got to say

But I've had this dream

Bright inside of me

I'm gunna let it show

It's time to let you know…

To let you know

This is real this is me

I'm exactly where I'm supposed

To be now

Gunna let the light shine on me

At that point in her song Shane turned towards her amazed. It had been Mitchie singing in that practice room. He grabbed the mic from his Uncle Brown and smiled. Mitchie the one person in this camp that was not after him for his fame but a real true friend.

Now I've found who I am

There's no way to hold it in

No more hiding who I want to be

This is me

Do you know what it's like

To feel so in the dark

To dream about a life

Where you're the shining star

Even though it seems

Like it's too far away

I have to believe

In myself, it's the only way

This is real this is me

I'm exactly where I'm supposed

To be now

Gunna let the light shine on me

Now I've found who I am

There's no way to hold it in

No more hiding who I want to be

This is me

Mitchie sung softer until she saw Shane walking toward her with a microphone in his hand.

You're the voice I hear inside my head

The reason that I'm singing

I need to find you

I gotta find you

You're the missing piece I need

The song inside of me

I need to find you

I gotta find you

This is real this is me

I'm exactly where I'm supposed

To be now

Gunna let the light shine on me

Now I've found who I am

There's no way to hold it in

No more hiding who I want to be

This is me

This is me… this is me…

You're the missing piece I need

The song inside of me

You're the voice I hear

Inside my head

The reason that I'm singin

There's no way to hold it in

No more hiding who I want to be

This is me

They both stopped singing to thunderous applause and Shane kissed Mitchie's cheek and they both went back stage together.

"Mitchie we need to talk, how about a canoe ride later after final jam jam session," Shane asked her.

"I'd like that," Mitchie said knowing she had been forgiven for everything or so she hoped.

Shane smiled as he walked away to join his band mates to announce the results of Final Jam. When he met up with his brothers they were on the phone with the label who were ecstatic about the number Mitchie had performed, and they wanted her to come to L.A. with the guys as winners of final jam along with Caitlyn and Peggy.

"This is awesome boys when did you meet Mitchie? Is she the girl with the voice?" the label asked.

"I didn't know that Mitchie was the girl with the voice but I'm glad she is. She is the only girl I know that treats me for me and not someone famous. Would you mind if I started seeing her on a personal level?" Shane asked.

"Guys it sounds like Shane's got it bad," they said and agreed to let him do this after all with out him there would be no connect 3 and his brothers would do anything to see him happy.

After they had made the decision that Peggy would win Shane walked back out onto the stage with Brown only to be slightly disappointed that Mitchie wasn't there.

"This years winner of Final Jam is Margaret Dupree. Not only does she win the chance to record with my nephew Popstar sensation Shane Gray but she also wins a full paid scholarship for camp next summer," Brown announced and everyone was very happy for her.

"Next up is my favorite part of tonight's entertainment The Final Jam Jam Session. First up is my nephew Shane Gray," Brown announced before hopping off the stage and into the crowd.

Every time I think I'm closer to the heart…

Of what it means to know just who I am

I think I've finally found a better place to start

But no one ever seems to understand

I need to try to get to where you are

Could it be you're not that far

You're the voice I hear inside my head

The reason that I'm singin'

I need to find you

I gotta find you you're the missing piece I need

The song inside of me

I need to find you

I gotta find you

You're the remedy I'm searching hard to find

To fix the puzzle that I see inside

Painting all my dreams the color of your smile

When I find you it will be alright

I need to try to get to where you are

Could it be you're not that far.

You're the voice I hear inside my head

The reason that I'm singin'

I need to find you

I gotta find you you're the missing piece I need

The song inside of me

I need to find you

I gotta find you

Been feeling lost can't find the words to say

Spending all my time stuck in yesterday

Where you are is where I wanna be

Oh next to you… and you next to me

Oh I need to find you… yeah

You're the voice I hear inside my head

The reason that I'm singin'

I need to find you

I gotta find you you're the missing piece I need

The song inside of me

I need to find you

I gotta find you

You're the voice I hear inside my head

The reason that I'm singin'

I need to find you

I gotta find you you're the missing piece I need

The song inside of me

I need to find you

I gotta find you

Yeah I gotta find you

Shane sang looking out into the crowd staring at Mitchie and she blushed.

"Next up in our Jam session is Mitchie Torres," Brown announced and Mitchie walked on stage.

There's a song that's inside of my soul
It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again
I'm awake in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over and over and over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands
And pray to be only Yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know now you're my only hope

Sing to me the song of the stars
Of Your galaxy dancing and laughing
And laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that You have for me over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you're my only hope

I give You my destiny
I'm giving You all of me
I want Your symphony
Singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs I'm giving it back

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you're my only hope

Mitchie finished her song and was then joined by the rest of camp rock and staff and Shane grabbed her hand in his.

Cause we rock

We rock

We rock on

We rock

We rock on

Come as you are

You're a superstar

World in your pocket

And you know it

You can feel the beat

Running through your feet

Hearts racing fast

You're rock and rollin

All that you need is the music

To take you to some other place

Where you know you belong

Raise your hands up in the air

And scream

We're finding our voice, following

Our dreams

Cause we rock, we rock

We rock

We rock on

Nobody in the world's gonna bring

Us down

The louder we go, the better

We sound

Cause we rock we rock

We rock we rock on

They all continued the song and their final words to the audience were Camp Rock

Mitchie spent some time with her parents before her father left and her mother went back to the kitchen. She then nervously walked towards the docks to meet with Shane.

When she got there she found Shane there with a smile on his face.

"Shane," Mitchie said quickly.

"Hey Mitchie," Shane said.

"I know you had something to say Shane but hear me out first," Mitchie said and he nodded.

"Ever since my ex boyfriend cheated on me with my best friend to become popular in my place I became an outcast. I have exactly one friend back home and when I got here I wanted nothing more than to fit in because a part of me felt like I was good for nothing but being picked on. That lie I made was for the camp the me that you know the person I am when I'm with you is the real Mitchie Torres. Now I've said my peace and if you want nothing more to do with me then I understand," Mitchie said turning to leave.

As she turned to leave Shane grabbed her hand to stop her from leaving.

"Mitchie I know I was a jerk to you this past week but it kind of shocked me and I being an idiot believed Tess when she said you just lied to get to me. I should have known Tess was lying and I'm sorry. You're the only one here that likes me for the real me and not what I am. I am also sorry that I was so obsessed with finding the girl with the voice that I didn't see what was right in front of me. It took me a week to realize that I had fallen for a girl already not because she had a voice but for a girl who saw me as me and not what I was. I love you Mitchelle Torres will you be my girlfriend?" Shane asked her.

"I love you too Shane but we'll never see each other after tomorrow and I don't know if I could handle all those screaming fans all over you," Mitchie said.

"I'll visit often and fly you out to all of our concerts with VIP tickets. We'll text and email all the time. Please Mitchie I really want this to work," Shane said with a smile.

"Alright Shane I'll be your girlfriend I love you Shane Gray," Mitchie said.

"I love you as well Mitchie Torres," Shane said as he brought her into his lap and kissed her passionately.

They sat and talked the night away not wanting any of it to end, they wished time would stand still for them.

A while later Shane walked Mitchie back to her cabin and kissed her goodnight before anyone noticed he was there. Mitchie walked into her cabin with a huge smile on her face when she saw that Caitlyn was waiting for her.

Shane walked back his cabin with a smile on his face. The tour didn't start until January and he had talked Connie into letting Mitchie come with them but the four months with out her would be torture. He knew it had to be done so he bought her a phone that would be billed to him so that they could talk to each other all the time.

"Hey Shane what's up man?" Nate asked him.

"She said yes Nate but four months with out her with me is going to be pure hell. She's completely amazing," Shane said with a sad smile.

"Didn't they tell you?" Nate asked him.

"Tell me what?" Shane asked nervously.

"Well the label made a deal with a school in Mitchie's neighborhood to help with the winter talent show and we'll be staying in her guest house," Nate said.

Shane looked at his brother's in shock, "Thanks guys," he said.

"No problem bro, Jase and I would do anything to keep you happy," Nate said hugging his brother.

Shane fell asleep on the couch that night with a smile on his face.

The next day was full of tears, as Mitchie was sad to leave camp behind but most of all she didn't want to leave Shane behind and go back to being non existent.
