Jack and Kim: Little Stories
Jack's and Kim's thoughts will be in italics. I don't own Kickin' It but I do own Jesse. Well enjoy :)He's Just My Best Friend
It was a sunny day at the park. The sun's rays were beating down on the ground. While the cool breeze from the ocean kept the temperature down. A few clouds were settled in the sky as seagulls flew by.
A blonde girl was seated on a bench, wearing white short shorts, a floral patterned purple tank top, a denim jacket on top with the sleeves rolled up to her elbows, and white low cut converse. The bench she was on faced the playgroud filled with little boys and girls. She watched as a little boy, not older than 4, walk up to a girl, the same age, and gave her a flower. The little girl smiled and gave the little boy a kiss on the cheek as the two held hands and went off to play.
"Why can't it be that easy? Everything just has to be so damn complicated!" the blonde girl sighed frustratedly.
"You know, it actually really isn't. All you gonna do is tell him." said a voice behind the blonde girl. Making her jump a bit.
"Jess don't sneek up on me like that again unless you want a face full of concrete." the blonde girl warned.
"Damn Kim. Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed today." the boy, Jesse, teased. He looked at the girl beside him. Her blonde hair flew in the breeze as her face plastered a slight frown. Her brown eyes showed heart ach, frustration, and sadness. No sign of their usual sparkle.
"I'm sorry. I've just been having a rough day." apologized Kim. She turned her head to her best friend. He had on dark denim skinny jeans, a gray shirt with a picture of a giraffe, a dog tag necklace, and gray vans. His black short curly hair was hidden under black OBEY hat. She got it for him on his birthday, from Lids.
Jesse gave her an understanding smile, "It's okay Kimmy." he said. He put his arm around her waist. Kim just let her head fall onto his shoulder.
Kim sighed, "I just don't know what to do anymore Jess. He asked me to ask Donna if she liked him. That broke me. All I am to him is a friend and it really really hurts." the girl said. A few tears escaped her eyes.
"Shhhhh. Please don't cry Kimmy. You know I hate it when you cry. But if you, it gives me all the right to go and beat the crap out of him." replied Jesse. He had on a serious face. Meaning, he meant every word.
Kim smiled weakly, "He's just as good at karate as I am. Maybe better. So I doubt you could beat him." she said. She wiped the tears off her face and put a weak smile on.
"And plus, I did beat you up that one time." Kim added.
"Aw, come on Kim. You didn't have to go there." Jesse pouted, "way to take a blow on my ego."
Jesse grabbed his heart and dramatically fell off the bench. Kim let out a small giggle. She shook her head as she looked down at her best friend.
"Awe, poor Jesse." replied Kim, her smile getting a bit bigger.
Not getting a reply from the pouting boy on the ground, Kim just asked, "Wanna go play on the swings?"
Suddenly Jesse jumped up. His face resembled a four year olds face on Christmas day.
"Really?" questioned Jesse.
Kim just giggled and nodded. Jesse grabbed her hand and the two were off towards the swings on the playground. The best friends found two empty swings next to each other and got on.
The two were having a competition to see who could swing the highest until Jesse jumped off his swing. He took off to the grass area, getting an idea. Kim slowed down and sat on her swing. She just watched her friend in confusion. Soon Jesse was in front of Kim with his hands behind his back.
"Whats behind your back?" questioned a confused Kim.
Instead of an answer, Jesse gave her a flower. Kim's confusion was replaced by awe and joy. Jesse tucked the flower behind Kim's ear and resumed his spot in the swing next to her. He was about to start swinging when he felt a pair of lips on his cheek.
"Thank you." Kim whispered.
"Anytime." smiled Jesse as the two continued their competition. Kim's earlier problem forgotten, thanks to her best friend.
Little did she know that the cause of her earlier problem just saw the entire scene unfold.
I come here to look for Kim and I find her with that Jesse dude. I wanted to talk to her and ask her if she wanted to hang out with me and the guys. But she's on a date with Jesse. I saw the two of them on the bench together and then run off to the swings. I also saw Jesse give Kim that flower and tuck it behind her ear and she gave him a kiss on the cheek.It hurts because I want to be the one who did those things. But what hurts even more is that she looked so happy.And if you haven't noticed by now, I have a crush on Kim Crawford. But, it looks like she likes Jesse. I began walking back to the mall. Once I got there Jerry asked me where Kim was.
"With Jesse." I replied with a bit of jealousy.
Eddie, Jerry, and Milton frowned. "Well at least they're not on a date. It wasn't a date right?" questioned Eddie.
I just shrugged, "It kinda looked like it. They were on a bench talking, then they went to the swings. He then gave her a flower and tucked it behind her ear. And then she gave him a kiss on the cheek." I said.
"Come on Jack. Kim said they were just best friends, that HE was just her best friend." Milton said, trying to convince me that I was just jumping to conclusions.
"Best friend my ass! You don't do those kind of stuff with a best friend, especially a best guy friend. And you especially don't kiss a guy if he's just a friend. I kinda sounds like a date." Jerry argued.
"Shut up Jerry!" Eddie said.
"What? All I'm saying is that it seems like a-"
"Jerry!" Milton cut off and I'm thankful for that. If I heard another thing about Kim and Jesse on a date then I'm gonna break something.
"Guys let's just drop it, alright? I don't wanna think about it." I said. "Let's just go watch the movie and hang out. Just us guys. No thinking about girls."
They just nodded in agreement and we headed to the movie theater. Once the movie started I couldn't pay attention. My thoughts were on Kim. Maybe this is MY fault. I mean it did seem like she had a crush on me but I wasn't sure. But when I asked her to ask Donna if she like me then I guess that ruined all chances I had with her IF she had a crush on me. Man, why am I so stupid! Why did I ask her to ask Donna! Donna is cute and has nice legs but shes nothing compared to Kim. Kim has way nicer legs, pretty hair, beautiful brown eyes, and a smile that can light up a room. Damn it! Get a grip Jack! I guess this is my fault. I'm just gonna have to man up and take the pain even if it hurts like hell.
After I got out of my thoughts and turned my attention to the movie, it was over. The credits were coming down. Man, I missed the movie. Guess I deserve that for thinking about Kim.
On our way back to the dojo the guys couldn't stop talking about the movie. Half of me was listening to them but the other half was still thinking about Kim. We turned a corner and behold the source of my thoughts and pain was there, with Jesse. I froze, along with the others, when my eyes locked onto those pretty brown eyes.
Jesse and I were heading to the mall after our little fun at the park. Jesse is the bestest friend I could ever have. He knows exactly how to make me feel better. I love him because of that, like a brother of course.
We were laughing at this joke Jesse said when I saw him. He had this distant look in his face like he was half in the conversation and I think I saw a flash of hurt before it was replaced with shock.
"Hey." Jack weakly smiled.
"Um, hi." I didn't know what else to say.
"Oh! Hey Kim." Milton cheerfully said, he clearly didn't sense the tension.
"Heyyyy! Wassup Kim? How was your guys' date?" Jerry joined the awkward conversation.
I looked at them in confusion. Then I turned to look at Jesse who looked just as confused.
"What're you guys talking about?" Jesse questioned.
"You know, Jack saw you guys at the park and said it looked like a date. So how was it?" Jerry pushed, still not sensing the tension.
I looked at Jack who stayed quiet since our awkward exchange. He looked kinda hurt when the guys mentioned the date me and Jesse were on, which we weren't. Maybe he does like me.
"Um, guys, we weren't on a date." Jesse tried telling them.
"Yah. He was just cheering me up." I added as I turned and gave Jesse a smile. "He is my best friend after all."
"But you guys kissed." Eddie blurted out.
Jerry, Milton, and Jack all glare at Eddie. While Jesse and I just sported lost looks. Until Jesse realized what he was talking about.
"It was a kiss on the cheek. Doesn't mean anything." Jesse stated.
"Unless it's a certain someone." I mumbled to myself.
I thought the others didn't hear. Thought being the keep word. While Jack and I were looking around at anything that wasn't our friends at the moment, we didn't notice our four friends exchange knowing glances.
Jesse, Eddie, Milton, and Jerry slowly back away, leaving me and Jack alone.
"So, who would be this certain someone?" Jack questioned. He swayed back and forth in his heels.
"It's no one. He doesn't even like me back." Kim softly said. She looked towards the ground feeling awkward under Jack's stare.
"Well you know what I think?" Jack asked.
"That he's blind." Jack stated.
Kim just looked at him with confused brown eyes. Jack looked into her eyes and continued.
"He's blind because he doesn't see how lucky he is to have someone like you, to like him. He better come around Kim. Or I bet you'd find someone else." Jack said as he tried cheering her up a bit.
"Oh I doubt that. I see him everyday and I think I fall harder for him every minute. But, you know what? He doesn't even notice." Kim told Jack. She choked back tears, only a few fell onto her cheeks.
Jack's face fell and his heart broke. Here's the girl of his dreams crying over another guy, a guy who probably isn't worth her time yet alone her heart. Jack pulled Kim into a hug.
"It's going to be okay. I'll find this guy and beat the crap out of him." Jack said, hoping to get a smile or laugh out of her. Instead Kim pushed him back.
"IT'S YOU! God Jack, IT'S YOU! You're the one making me cry. You're the one who's blind. You're the one who doesn't like me back. You're the one...who's br-breaking m-y h-hea-art." Kim let out. She choked on her last few words while tears streamed down her face.
Jack just stood there shocked. The girl, he's like ever since he laid eyes on her, likes him back. Jack wanted to jump up for joy. He wanted to scream in the top of his lungs. He wanted to do a happy dance, but he did none of those things. He did none of those things because the girl of his dreams ran off.
Jack finally realized that Kim took off and ran after her. 'Where the hell is she?' Jack thought. He ran into the garden area in town.
Flowers were planted everywhere. Pathways lead to different places throughout the garden. Flower bushes and tress were here and there while a fountain occupied the center.
Jack walked towards the fountain. He walked around to the other side slowly, hearing snobs. Once on the other side Jack found Kim. She was sitting on the fountain with her head down. Her hands were wiping her falling tears.
"What do you want Jack?" questioned Kim, not looking up.
"I wanted to see if you were okay." Jack responded.
"Well as you can see, I'm just peachy." Kim snapped. She put on a fake smile as she looked towards Jack.
"Come on Ki-"
"Oh! Don't 'Come on Kim' me! I just told you my feelings. Yet all you say is 'Are you okay.' Jack I-"
It was Kim's turn to get cut off. Jack had pulled her into a kiss. He had his arms around her waist pulling her close.
Kim was in shock, but quickly recovered. She kissed back and wrapped her arms around his neck. She tangled her fingers into his hair. If out was possible, Jack pulled her even closer.
After what seemed like eternity, the two finally broke apart. They kept their arms where they were and caught their breath.
"Wow." Kim breathed out.
"Yah. Well in case you didn't notice, I like you too." Jack said. He leaned his forehead against Kim's.
Kim giggled, "I think I got that."
"Good. So, would you be my girlfriend Kim?" Jack asked. He closed his eyes, waiting for her response.
"Yes." giggled Kim.
Jack smiled and pulled Kim in for another breath taking kiss. The new couple pulled apart and linked hands. They began walking back towards the mall.
"So you and Jesse are...?" questioned Jack.
"He's just my best friend, Jack." answered Kim as she rested her head in his shoulder.
Jack smiled and kissed the top of her head. The two continued their way towards the mall, where their friends were looking all over for the pair.
The End.Thank you for reading. Please review :)
