"Hey, Tommy, can you hand me up that roll of red streamers that's sitting on the juice bar?" Kim asked for her perch atop a ladder. She, Tommy, Zack, and Billy were getting the Youth Center ready for Jason's party the following evening. Jason and Trini were off alone somewhere talking and mostly likely, making out as well. Kim smiled to herself at that thought. If anyone deserved to be happy, it was those two. She reached out for the roll of streamers Tommy was holding out and smiled at Tommy. "This party is going to be so much fun," she told him excitedly.
"I know," He replied. "And everyone knows Jason deserves it; I mean, think about all he's been through in the past couple of days."
"I know, it was horrible," Kim said shuddering.
"It was horrible, but it all turned out all right," Tommy reassured her.
"But what if it didn't? What if we lost Jason forever?" Kim questions told him she was still feeling shaky from the whole thing.
"Hey, come on down for a minute," Tommy insisted gently and she complied. As soon as she was safely down, Tommy gave her a big hug. "I know it was scary, Kim, but it will take a lot more than that to tear Jason away from all of us." Tommy's words made her feel better and she leaned against him again and rested her head on Tommy's chest. "I love you, Kim," he whispered softly, stroking her hair.
Kim pulled back a little. "I love you too, Tommy," she replied. The two shared a quick, but gentle kiss and then got back to work.
Meanwhile, Zack was at the juice bar looking over tapes and CDs, picking out the best ones for the party. Billy was next to him trying to get the sound and light systems working properly. He was trying to fix it so that the multicolored lights that he had bought would change colors in time to the music. "Any luck there, Billy?" Zack asked, turning to face him.
"Some, A few more adjustments and I should have it," He replied.
"Cool! I can't wait to try it out. The whole effect is going to be awesome!"
"Affirmative," Billy agreed. "I do hope Jason gets great enjoyment from all the visual stimulation."
Zack wasn't sure he understood exactly what Billy had just said, but he thought he got the gist of it. "Man, this place is going to be jamming tomorrow night!" Zack said enthusiastically.
Tommy came up to them then looking excited. "I can't wait to see Jason's face when we surprise him tomorrow evening!"
"Man, he's going to be so surprised he'll probably wet himself!" Zack exclaimed, laughing.
"Zack, that is so gross!" Kim said loudly as she came up behind Tommy.
"He's just a knucklehead, Kim. Jason's not going to wet himself, he going to have blast at the party!" Tommy told her.
"Hey!" Zack protested, mock-angry as he lightly smacked Tommy upside the head with his palm. This resulted in a mock-slap fight between the two of them and Kim and Billy laughing hysterically. It didn't last long, though. After several minutes they all calmed down and got back to work.
As they finished up later on, they each were thinking about how surprised and happy Jason was going to be the following night.
While their friends were decorating the Youth Center, Jason and Trini had first grabbed something to eat, and then had taken a long stroll through the park. Now, they were sitting on a bench as night fell, holding hands and gazing into each other's eyes.
"This night has been absolutely perfect," Jason murmured softly as he caressed Trini's cheek. "The weather is absolutely beautiful and I'm with the most wonderful young woman in the whole universe. What more could a guy want?"
"I have no idea, but I can't even begin to remember a time when I've been as happy as I am right now," Trini replied, leaning against Jason's caresses and closing her eyes.
"I love you so much, Trini," Jason told her, as she snuggled her head against his shoulder.
"I love you too, Jason, with all of my heart," Trini responded as she lifted her head to look Jason in the eyes.
Jason answered by kissing her long and hard. Trini wrapped her arms tightly around his neck and kissed him back, just as hard. Jason pulled her even closer and deepened the kiss, pressing his tongue against her lips, asking for entrance. She granted it and Jason then explored all the areas of her mouth with his tongue. Trini moaned into his mouth and she did the same to Jason and a tug-of-war with their tongues ensued. They finally pulled back, the need to breathe overriding everything else, but it was only for a few seconds then they were kissing again, hungrily and greedily. Before long, the two were in the middle of a full blown make-out session.
Sometime later Trini pulled back just long enough to ask "you are coming to the Youth Center tomorrow evening to meet Zack's cousins, right?"
Jason nodded, breathing hard. "Yeah, around six, right?"
"That's when Zack said he'd be there with them," Trini replied.
"Well I'll be there around six, then," Jason said and then, unable to hold back any longer, began making out with Trini again. They didn't get home until much later that night.
Jason walked up to the door of the Youth Center, gazing around curiously, for it appeared to be dark and deserted, which was very unusual for two reasons. One being that it was Saturday evening, usually one of it's busiest times, and two, They were all supposed to meet Zack's cousins here and according to Zack, they were going to be there at about a quarter before six. Jason checked his watch, making sure it was the right time. He frowned as he saw that it was six o'clock on the nose. He suddenly began feeling uneasy as he opened the door slowly with a felling of trepidation. He stood in the doorway and gazed into the silent darkness. "What's going on here?"He asked out loud. No sooner had the words left his mouth then he heard "SURPRISE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JASON!" From what seemed to be several dozen voices all at once as the lights all came on at the exact same time. Jason jumped a mile with his hand over his heart as he got the wits scared out of him. "Oh, my, gosh! What---huh?" He stammered, as his heartbeat slowly returned to normal. He looked around finally registering all his friends, the decorations, the food, and the big pile of presents on a table in the corner. "You guys," he began, his voice choking up. "You did all this?" he asked, looking at his friends.
"We sure did, bro," Tommy replied with a smile.
"We've been planning this for weeks!" Kim added excitedly.
"Yeah, and we scared the crap out of you a few minutes ago!" Zack put in jubilantly with a laugh.
"You sure did," Jason replied, laughing as well. "But what about your cousins?"
"Dude, that was just a story to get you here tonight," Zack said. "And it worked, too!"
"Wait, I thought you'd forgotten my birthday," Jason said, remembering his friends' lack of actions over the last couple of weeks concerning his birthday.
Tommy clapped him on the shoulder. "Man, did you really think we'd forget your birthday?"
Jason grinned sheepishly. "Well… I guess not." He lowered his voice to a whisper. "You had every reason to, though, after what I did to you guys." He lowered his head in shame.
"You're being too hard on yourself, bro," Tommy insisted softly. "I've been where you are, and I know how you're feeling, but you have to remember the spell made you do those awful things. It was controlling you, making you feel hate and anger."
"And love for Rita," Jason added, making a disgusted face and shivering. "That was sick! Just the thought of that makes me want to throw up!"
"Please don't," Kim spoke up. "That's a surefire way to make sure your party is the shortest in history!" They all laughed at that, Kim included.
"Okay, now that that's all out the way, let's party!" Zack yelled. He went over to the stereo and pushed a button, causing loud music to blare out the speakers. A lot of people started dancing and Trini grabbed Jason's arm.
"Come on, Birthday Boy, let's dance," She said and steered him toward the dance floor. A few seconds later, they were rocking to the beat with dozens of other couples. After a couple of songs Zack stood up on a chair next to the juice bar holding a microphone that had been hooded up to the sound system.
"Attention everyone!" He yelled and waited while everyone quieted down. "It's time to check out this totally radical light show we cooked up." He nodded to Billy who pushed a series of buttons on the control panel of the sound/light systems and a bunch of multicolored lights hung up on the walls of the Youth Center suddenly lit up and began flashing different colors in time to the music that pulsated loudly from the speakers. Cheers and applause of approval rang out loudly upon seeing this.
"That's totally awesome, Man!" Jason exclaimed, loving it. "Did you do it, Zack?"
"I'm afraid not," Zack said, a little regretfully. "Billy was the genius behind this colorful display."
"This is so cool, Billy!" Jason shouted, giving his friend a high-five. His friends all voiced their enthusiastic opinions of the light show as well.
"I knew he'd love it!" Zack said in a smug voice. With that they all began dancing and partying again, stopping occasionally to get something to eat from the snack table against one wall. This went on until Ernie, the owner of the Youth Center, stepped up to the microphone.
"I just want to wish Jason a very happy birthday and to announce that it's time for cake! So let's have the birthday boy up here in the seat of honor and the rest of you gather around. And for craps sake Zack, turn off the music so we can hear!" Everyone burst out laughing at Ernie's last statement as a blushing Jason took his place in the seat of honor.
"Before we go any further, I just want to thank everyone for tonight. This is the best birthday I have ever had. And I also have the best friends a guy could ever have. And the best girlfriend," He added, giving Trini a soft smile. Trini blushed, but looked pleased at Jason's words.
"I'm pretty sure I speak for all of us when I say thank you and that you're worth it and you deserve it all, and we're all really lucky to have you too," Tommy replied and the others all nodded vigorously. Now Jason blushed, but he looked pretty darn happy as they all sang Happy Birthday to him.
"Now blow out the candles, Jase," Zack told him when the song was finished.
"But don't forget to make a wish before you do, though," Billy added.
"I already have the best and most wonderful gift of all," Jason replied, putting an arm around Trini and pulling her close. He then kissed her softly and every person there smiled, knowing exactly what he meant.
