Disclaimer: I do not own JONAS.
A/N: This is a drabble response to a prompt and character request from AHigherOctave over in the One Hundred and One Prompts in Camp Rock. The prompt was #80 'Why' and the characters suggested were Macy and Nick. If you are looking for a bit of inspiration, it is a great list. And you don't have to write a Camp Rock story (obviously) to participate.
Nick stared across the cafeteria at Macy, who was sprawled across the table sound asleep, gently snoring with a small trail of drool running down her face. Even all the usual lunchtime noise didn't seem to be disturbing her sleep. He turned and asked Stella, "Why is Macy taking a nap at school?"
Stella sounded exasperated, "Because she stayed up all night standing outside the box office and spent all her savings so she could get the best tickets possible to the next JONAS concert."
"Please tell me you're joking," Nick pleaded.
Stella shook her head, "I wish I was. Go ask her yourself if you don't believe me."
Nick crossed the room and gently tapped the sleeping girl. Macy began to stir and finally opened her eyes, giving Nick a sleepy smile. "Hi Nick."
Nick sat down next to her. "Hi Macy. So Stella told me you were up late last night."
Macy's face lit up. "I was. I was the first one in line this morning when the JONAS tickets went on sale."
Nick asked in confusion. "Why?"
Macy looked at him like he was insane. "I told you I was you're number one fan. And I read somewhere that they save the best tickets to sell at the box office. I can't wait; it's going to be awesome!"
Nick shook his head. "No, I mean why did you go buy the tickets? Why didn't you just ask us for tickets and back stage passes?"
"I would never do that, Nick," Macy said indignantly.
"Why not?" Nick asked. He was pretty sure that Macy considered the brothers to be friends. He couldn't imagine why she wouldn't just ask them for tickets.
"Because you're my friend, and I would never want you to think I was using you." Macy explained simply.
At that moment, Nick really saw Macy for the first time, as more than just a fan or an acquaintance or a friend of Stella's.
Nick looked her right in the eyes, "I'm giving you backstage passes, okay?"
"You don't have to, Nick. I'm just excited to see the show." Macy insisted.
"I know I don't have to, Macy, but I want to. I want to see you after the show." Nick replied honestly, smiling at her.
As Macy blushed at his comment, Nick couldn't help but think she looked adorable, and he wondered why he had never noticed her before.
