That Thing Called Love
A/N: Hello people, thank you for your FANTASTIC reviews. I'm gonna do the Q&A thing in the second A/N at the end of the chapter. I know I said this would be the Oliver reunion, but it's gonna be that, and Bade at the mall…or maybe just Bade at the mall, and then the Oliver reunion in the next chapter. WARNING: This chapter contains violence.
"Before we go, I need to go and tell my mom you're coming, and that we're going to the mall," Beck said as he led her into his house.
They walked in the front door, and everybody looked over at him.
His aunt Dana and uncle Duke were already there. He was hoping none of his relatives had arrived yet.
"Beck!" Dana exclaimed as she wrapped him in a tight hug.
"Hey Aunt Dana," he greeted in a strained voice.
She pulled away from Beck and smiled at Jade.
"Oh Jade, it's so good to see you again," she said with a smile as she pulled Jade in a hug.
As the lady hugged her, Jade glared at Beck. He shrugged and held his hands up in his defense.
Jade immediately put a smile on her face when Dana pulled away. Much like Dana's smile, it was forced.
Duke patted Beck on the shoulder, "How ya been boy?" He inquired.
Beck nodded, "I've been staying alive."
"That must be hard, huh?" He said with a grin.
"What do you mean?" Beck asked confused.
His uncle Duke motioned towards Jade, clear enough for her to see.
Jade put on a forced smile. "Well, if it isn't you, uncle Duke," she said through gritted teeth.
Beck's Uncle Duke never really liked Jade, but half of his relatives didn't.
Beck shot his uncle a warning glare, and then grabbed Jade's hand leading her to find his mom. Jade stuck her tongue out at Duke as she was pulled away.
"Hey mom," Beck greeted as he found her.
"Hey sweetie," she greeted as she kissed his cheek.
"Jade's dad said she could come along," Beck said with a smile.
"Oh, that's great, we already reserved for an extra person, for just in case," she informed them.
"Can we go to the mall, Jade doesn't have any dressy clothes here," Beck explained.
"Alright, be back in an hour and a half," she ordered.
"Ok, oh, and mom, why are Uncle Duke and Aunt Dana here already?" Beck questioned.
"They just asked if they could come along with us, so we're driving them to the restaurant," she replied bluntly.
"Ok, how about me and Jade meet you guys there, because a car ride with Duke and Jade in the same car won't end very well," Beck reminded her.
Mrs. Oliver nodded, "Be there at 6 o clock sharp," she said warningly.
"Ok," Beck replied as he grabbed Jade's hand and they walked out of the house.
They walked up to Beck's car, and got in. Beck put the keys in ignition and turned on the car.
"Hey Jade?" He questioned before starting to drive.
"What?" She replied harsher than she intended.
"Do you really want to come to my family reunion? I mean, half of my relatives hate you, and I don't want to make you feel like you're being forced to be with a bunch of people that hate you," he explained.
"Beck, I'll be fine," she said reassuringly.
Beck sighed and started driving.
Beck held Jade's hand in his as they walked into the large building.
"I want coffee," Jade said bluntly.
"Alright, we'll go get coffee, and then find you something to wear for the reunion," Beck said as they changed routes.
"Why do your relatives hate me?" She questioned as they walked.
"Because ever since I was young, my whole family wanted me to date some preppy cheerleader, or stuck up girly girl. Not someone like you," he explained.
Jade smirked, "Nevermind I'll find, someone like you, I wish nothing but the best, for you to, don't forget me, I beg, I remember, you said, sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead," Jade sang softly.
"Very funny," Beck replied sarcastically.
"That's what you get for singing a bunch of random songs the other night," Jade said with a shrug.
Eventually they arrived at the coffee place. Beck smiled at the lady behind the counter.
"Um, I'll have a French Vanilla latte please," Beck said in a friendly tone.
"And for you ma'am?" She asked Jade.
"Uh, I'll do the same," she replied nonchalantly.
"That'll be $9.99," she replied with a smile.
"What!" Jade exclaimed. "That's way too expensive; we're not paying that much for 2 cups of coffee!" Jade yelled.
Beck ignored Jade and handed the lady the money.
They stood there until their coffee was ready. She handed them there coffee, and before they walked off, Jade shot a glare at the lady.
"Jade, do you think we could go somewhere without you yelling at someone?" Beck inquired.
"Don't count on it," she replied as she sipped her latte.
"Beck? Jade?" They heard a familiar voice call out once they walked a great distance from the coffee shop.
Jade would've kept walking, but Beck, with his friendly nature, turned around.
Jade groaned and turned around.
It was none other than Tori Vega.
"I thought you were at singing camp," Beck inquired.
"Oh, no, that's next week," she said subtly.
Beck and Jade looked at eachother with an annoyed expression.
Beck and Jade both looked back, and saw that Tori wasn't alone.
There was another girl next to her; she had long blonde hair, green eyes, and her cheekbones were almost as doll-like as Tori. Shit, Jade thought, she was attractive.
"You guys, this is my cousin Cori," Tori greeted.
"Oh my god," Jade replied as she sipped her coffee. Tori and Cori, really?
"Nice to meet you," Cori said as she held out her hand.
Beck smiled and shook her hand.
She held her hand out to Jade, but Jade just stared at her as if she had grown an extra head.
Cori put her hand down awkwardly, and focused her attention on Beck. "I like your hair," she said sweetly as she pushed a strand of hair behind her ear.
"Cori, maybe we should go somewhere else," Tori said urgently as Jade glared at her cousin.
"Will you go out with me?" Cori exclaimed at Beck out of nowhere.
Beck furrowed his eyebrows at her. "I have a girlfriend," he said as he motioned towards Jade.
"Cori, maybe we should—," Tori started.
"She doesn't have to know," Cori said seductively.
"I'm right here! You can't go out with him!" Jade exclaimed clearly pissed.
"Shhhh! His girlfriend will hear," she said putting a finger to her lips.
Before anyone could react, Jade had attacked Cori.
Jade got overtop of her and started slapping her repeatedly. Everyone in their view had gathered around them.
Cori was a lot stronger than Jade thought though. She kicked Jade off of her, and kicked her in the stomach, making her roll onto her side.
Beck went in to try and break up the fight, but he ended up getting slapped in the face, he wasn't sure if it was an accident, or on purpose, and he wasn't even sure who it was. But it made him stumble back.
Tori wasn't even helping, she was too scared to get into the middle of it.
Cori clawed at Jade's head. Jade brought up her fist knocking Cori off of her.
Jade got overtop of her and wrapped her hands around the girl's throat.
"Jade!" Beck shouted, but she ignored him.
Cori gripped Jade's wrists, and sunk her teeth into her wrist.
Jade screamed out in pain and pulled away. She looked at the teeth marks in her arm; blood was already dripping down her arms.
As she looked back at Cori, Cori's foot was ramming into Jade's chest.
Jade fell to her back, coughing for air. Cori had knocked the air out of her temporarily.
"Jade!" Beck exclaimed as he pulled her into his arms.
Tori pulled Cori up. Cori was hyperventilating as she glared at Jade.
"I'm gonna kill her!" Jade exclaimed as she tried lunging at her, but Beck held her still.
"No! Jade, no more fighting," Beck said trying to stay calm.
"Did I forget to mention that she is a professional fighter," Tori squeaked.
"Tori, just go!" Beck exclaimed.
Keeping a hold of Jade, Beck led her to the parking lot, and to his car. Not too much time later, they were in the RV.
"Sit down," he ordered.
Jade rolled her eyes and sat down.
He soaked a paper towel under some warm water. He walked up to Jade. "Arm," he said a bit harshly.
Jade sighed and held out the arm that Cori had bitten.
He wiped up the blood, and then went over to the first aid kit. He came back over with some disinfectant, and took off the lid.
"Are you mad at me?" She questioned in a small voice.
"Arm," he repeated since she had let her arm fall.
She sighed and held her arm up.
He poured the disinfectant on her arm, she winced the stinging.
He grabbed another paper towel, and wiped off the disinfectant.
He grabbed a new paper towel and got it damp. He came back over and wiped up the blood from her nose.
"Beck, I'm sorry," she said just above a whisper.
"I just don't like it when you get in fights," he said softly.
Jade sighed, "I know."
"I'm just glad you're ok," he said with a smile.
"Uh, Beck?" Jade inquired as she looked at the clock.
"Yeah?" He questioned, and then followed her gaze to the clock.
"It's 6:09," Jade stated.
"We're not going, we didn't even get you anything to wear," he reminded her.
"Will your mom be ok with it?"
"Nope," he replied subtly.
A/N: Sooo…what did you guys think of Cori? Tough but stupid xD And if you're wondering who won that fight, it was basically a tie because Beck kept a hold of Jade. I actually like this chapter. Oh, and the whole singing camp thing, the reason Beck and Jade looked at eachother with annoyed expressions, was because, if they had called Tori, they would've gotten out of the janitor's closet much easier.
Q: What is your URL on Tumblr?
A: I don't actually have a Tumblr; I just look around on it :)
Q: Is Jade's father nice?
A: Well, he's like he is in the show, judgmental, and he doesn't have a very strong relationship with Jade.
Q: When did you start writing?
A: Well, if you mean for Fanfiction, then that would be last December.
Q: What is your favorite episode of Victorious?
A: If I had to choose just one, it would definitely be Jade Dumps Beck (no shocker there). Actually, my favorite episode might actually end up be Tori Saves Beck And Jade…it probably will be.
