Jadey is back! You didn't even know she was gone, or that you missed her, but now that she's back, you realize you missed her a lot.

You think maybe Beck was stealing her jadeness and keeping it for himself. It's almost like he's been keeping her in a cage, trying to make her his pet, and now that she's not trapped she doesn't have to be unhappy anymore. Who wouldn't be grumpy if someone put a leash on them and jerked them around all the time?

It's like all her anger and meanness was her trying to chew through the leash, and now that she has, she can be nice again.

Jade's nice isn't like other people's nice, it's quieter, sneakier. Her comforting sounds a lot like mocking, but it still makes people feel better, and her love looks a lot like indifference, but only from the outside. You like Jade's stealth-kindness better than everyone else's normal kindness, because it's always real. If she comes over, it isn't because she couldn't think of a good reason to say no, and if she talks to you on the phone for three hours, it isn't because she didn't want to be rude. You never have to wonder if she's really your friend of she's just pretending to avoid hurting your feelings.

She can still be really mean sometimes, but at least it's not like Beck's stealth-mean. He acts all nice and stuff, so it always looks like it's the other person's fault when he hurts their feelings. He's a lot more hurtful than Jade ever was, too. You hope she never goes back to him, because everything's better now that he's gone.

You think maybe you hate him, you aren't sure, because you've never hated anyone before, but you think that's what it is when just looking at something makes you angry. You see how dead he looks, how much he's hurting, and you don't feel the least bit bad for him. He deserves it, and you hope he spends the rest of his miserable life pining for the girl he almost destroyed.

Yeah, okay, you definitely hate him.

AN: I'm SO sorry it took me so long to update this. First I just couldn't think of anything, and then I had to rewire my entire Bade philosophy when I saw just how much nicer and happier she is after the breakup, and how uninteresting Beck has become. This will still have a happy Bade ending, but it's going to take longer, and be much harder on Beck. So if watching jerks suffer before they get any chance of redemption is your thing, then you're in for a treat.
