Savannah, Emily, and I have been on tour now with Connect 3 for about a month now and life just couldn't get any better. After the little confrontation we had with Gina and Samantha, Emily and Savannah came over to the plantation and I explained everything to them. Emily was upset about seeing her mother and sister take a ride "downtown" in a cop car, but she quickly got over it once she saw Connect 3 sitting inside our living room. That's right I said "our living room" because I decided to let Emily stay at the plantation with me. Samantha somewhat disowned her once she found out Emily was taking my side in this whole ordeal, but now it doesn't even seem to bother Emily at all. Savannah was a little upset with me at first, but once she found out about the marriage certificate she couldn't have been any happier for me.
Jason and I have been dating ever since the Battle of the Bands night. He is the sweetest guy in the entire world, and everyday he just makes me love life more and more. It's amazing how only a couple of months ago I hated my life…now I wouldn't have it any other way.
"Good morning, sunshine," I heard 'Van call to me as her and Emily walked out on stage with me. We had a gig tomorrow night and we were about to run through our performance. Turns out, Emily actually is a very talented musician, but she was always held back by Gina, so Savannah, Emily, and I formed a band, and our fan base is growing more and more each show.
"So, I heard you have a date tonight with a Mister Jason Gray," 'Van nudged me as she walked over to the microphone.
"Savannah, they have a date almost every night," Emily joked. I laughed; it was somewhat true. I liked going out and seeing the world and Jason liked showing it to me. Each new city we'd always try to sneak off and go site seeing.
"Hey, it's fun; going out and doing stuff. Maybe y'all should try it; you know there are two other boys here on this tour," I winked at my friends…it was now their turn to blush, only causing me to laugh harder.
"Whatever, Joey; let's just do this," 'Van said trying to shrug off her embarrassment. I smiled to myself as I started playing my new guitar that I had just bought a couple days ago. It wasn't as good as my dad's but then again…I don't think I'll ever find another one quite like my father's.
The rehearsal went perfect and we were now ready for the show tomorrow night; but as of right now I had to worry about getting ready for my date with Jason.
He had told me we were going to a park to have a quiet picnic, and I had to admit I was very excited. I loved little intimate romantic dates like that.
I dressed in a cute outfit, but nothing too fancy; after all we were going to be outside.
I had noticed, while I was getting ready Jason was nowhere to be found. I only could only guess that maybe he was setting up or getting ready himself.
Finally around 7, Jason came over to my bus.
"Hi beautiful," he said as he kissed my cheek, "you ready?" he asked as I stood up. I nodded as he took my hand and we headed off the bus.
After a short walk we reached a nearby park where I saw a blanket set out with a little picnic basket on it. I couldn't help but giggle. This was so adorable.
Jason squeezed my hand gently.
"You like it?" he asked softly. I smiled at him.
"I love it; this is just too cute," I said before I gave him a hug.
We both sat down, and soon Jason pulled out two sandwiches.
We pretty much ate in silence, but not that 'awkward' silence; it was the 'comfortable, this is too good for words so I won't say anything at all' silence.
We got done eating, and then Jason pulled me close to his side. We quietly cuddled and looked up at the stars. This was just too perfect; nothing could make this night any better.
I had my head resting on Jason's chest, and I was almost asleep when I heard him speak softly, "Joey?" he asked.
"Hm?" I replied sleepily.
"I have a surprise for you," Jason said quietly as he slowly sat up, still holding me in his arms. I perked up slightly. He got me a surprise?
"Jason, you shouldn't have. I don't need anything but you," I told him sincerely. He smiled.
"I wanted to get you this," he said as he pulled away and stood up. I watched as Jason walked behind a tree.
"Close your eyes," he said with a smile in his voice. I did what he asked.
I could hear him walk back over to me and sit down.
"Ok, now hold out your arms," he asked. Once again, I did what he asked.
I could feel something familiar in my hands.
"Ok, now open your eyes," he said excitedly.
I opened my eyes to see I was holding a guitar. I looked at it closely. This wasn't just any guitar; this guitar looked exactly like my father's.
"Jason," I whispered in amazement, "where did you find this?" I asked in shock. I couldn't take my eyes off the guitar.
"It's not where I found it…its how did I fix it?" he said softly. I felt a sudden rush of tears come to my eyes.
"You mean…this is…this is my father's guitar?" I choked out as I looked up at him. He nodded with a bright smile on his face.
I gently sat the guitar down, and then jumped on him, engulfing him in the biggest hug I think I've ever given anyone.
Jason pulled back as if to say something, but I kissed his lips before any words could be exchanged.
As I slowly pulled away, all I could think to say was "thank you".
Jason gently stroked my cheek, "You deserve it, beautiful," he softly kissed my lips once more.
"How?" I asked still astonished.
"Well that night I went looking for you; I went by the shop first and I saw the damage. I made a quick call to this guy I know who works on guitars…he owed me a favor," Jason said still wearing his gorgeous smile.
"Thank you," I cried softly. He took me into his arms once more and gently wiped my tears away.
"It's the least I could do for my Cinderella," he whispered with a kiss upon my cheek.
It was then that night that I knew I had found my Prince Charming.
