Hellooooooo! Hope the last chapter didn't give you too bad of a heart attack. Forgive me if it did xD rofl. Here's chapter 12!


"Jim?"

The Australian was frowning as he took a step forward and closed the door behind him. "I know what you did," he said. "At the New Year's party."

"How?"

He took another step forward. "I can never forget eyes like yours."

Johan resisted the urge to run up and squeeze the life out of him.

"But that's not important right now because I saw you about…ten minutes ago."

Johan's eyes widened.

"Why in the hell would you try and kill yourself?!"

The bluenette jumped. Jim had never yelled at him before and to see this side of him scared him.

"What are you talking about?"

"You know exactly what I'm talking about! You jumped off a ten foot tree! Why?!"

"I wasn't trying to kill myself."

"What on God's green earth were you doing?"

Johan sighed. "It's a long story."

"I've got loads of time."

"Ok, I'll tell you if you stop yelling!"

Jim slumped his shoulders forward. "I'm sorry. You just scared me."

"Well you're scaring me too." He sat down on the bed and took a deep breath.

The Australian sat down next to him. "Just tell me."

"Ok." He explained what happened with the Pegasi and the hail storm that was still going on this moment.

"And there weren't anymore branches to climb down and Judai said to jump in the water. So I did."

"It scared the hell out of me."

"I know. If only you paid attention to the part when Judai pulled me out."

Jim laughed a humorless laugh. "Tell me something else."

"Sure." He yawned. Staying up for forty-eight hours could really put someone out.

"Have you gotten any sleep the past couple of days? You look terrible."

"Thanks."

"Sorry."

He shrugged. "Honestly, no. I couldn't stop thinking about you. And I thought that if I fell asleep I'd forget everything. I couldn't. The memories were the only thing that kept me sane…mostly."

"Why did you leave in the first place?"

Johan sighed. "Because your family told me to."

He scoffed. "Johan!" He rolled his eyes. "I can't believe you! My family was born in Jackass-ville. Since when do you listen to them?"

"It wasn't just them." He sighed. "It was everyone. Your manager, the paparazzi, your fans…need I say more?"

"Oh my god!" he cried. "Why do you care so much about what others think? I love you and you love me, that's all that matters! As long as we know that we'll be fine. Who cares about others? I surely don't! Damnit, you're the definition of neurotic!"

Johan stood up. "I am not the definition of neurotic! A neurotic person would be someone who was either a nervous wreck or distraught. You must not remember me all that well because I am neither of those things. How dare you tell me I'm neurotic?!"

"Wha-- Johan, you are so fucking annoying! I just told you that I love you and you're giving me a vocabulary lesson? What the hell?"

"Get ou--" Johan's face softened. "What?"

"I love you, Jo-kun." He stood as well and stepped closer. "I love you." Then he wrapped his arms around Johan and pulled him in so their bodies were touching.

"I love you too," Johan breathed. "Kiss me."

Jim bent down and their lips met into an affectionate kiss.

"I'm sorry," Jim said against his lips.

"Me too," said Johan. He licked Jim's bottom lip and he opened willingly.

Their tongues entwined which brought moans out of both of them.

"Hey Johan?"

The bluenette shoved Jim off of him and turned to his brother. "Yes?"

"Do you have any Febreeze?"

He turned to his closet and grabbed it from the top shelf. "Here."

"Thanks. Whoa! Are you Jim Cook?"

"No," they said in harmony.

"It'd be cool if he was though," Johan said. "I'm a huge fan."

"Really." Judai said sarcastically. Then he left.

"C'mon," Jim said. "Let's go reintroduce you to my family."

Johan laughed. "Ok."

They drove back to his mansion and Johan was forced to act surprised when he walked in.

"Johan, this is my mother and my manager, Mike."

They shook hands and talked for a while trying to get to know each other…again.

"I don't like him," Mike said aloud."

"Mike! If you have to insult him, wait until he leaves!" Mrs. Cook scolded. "I'm sorry, honey."

"It's fine," Johan said with a fake smile.

Jim shook his head at Mike. "Let's go to my room." He led Johan up the steps and into his room.

They sat down on the bed.

"Jim, I'm ok. You don't have to worry."

"I know I just…"

"What?"

"I just we could just leave this world for a while."

"You mean like running away?"

"Kinda. I know, it's really immature."

"No it's not. Everyone feels like that. I did that once."

"Yeah that didn't end too well."

"Not really."

Jim sighed again.

"But maybe it'd be different if we ran away together. I dunno."

Jim looked up. "You'd do that?"

"Of course. I'd do it for you." He kissed him lightly. "I love you."

"Then let's do it."

"Ok. But where would we go?" Johan asked.

Jim stood up and started digging through his briefcase. Then he took two slips of paper out. "How does LA sound to you?"

"That sounds great. But I should tell my mom and Judai."

Jim tossed his phone to him. "Go ahead. If she says yes, we'll go and pick up your stuff, ok?"

"Ok!"

Johan was so excited. If only he could go into the future and see what his mother would say…
