I'm going away this weekend and I won't be able to update so here's an update that should keep you all happy until I get back. Enjoy!
Jade needed help. That much she knew. She needed help to win her Tori back. And who knew Tori better than Tori knew herself? André Harris. Tori's best friend. Jade knew that André would go to the moon and back to make Tori happy again, but she also knew that André was extremely pissed at her for what happened that night at Karaoke Dokie.
After she had gotten off the phone with the musician, she patiently waited in her living room for him to arrive. While sitting on the round leather sectional, she got to thinking. Just three weeks ago she had hated the girl with a fiery passion. But here she was, not even a month later, pining over none other than, Tori Vega. Not being able to talk to Tori, or see Tori, or even smell Tori's perfume that she had grown accustomed to, was slowly killing her inside.
A knock on the door startled her from her reverie. She looked through the little peephole and saw that it was André, standing there awkwardly with his hands in his pockets. She unlocked the door and let him in and gestured for him to take a seat in the living room while she re-locked the door. Seconds later she joined him in the living room.
"Okay Jade, so what's your big plan?" André asked as he folded his arms across his chest.
"I just need you to make sure Tori goes to the Full Moon Jam tomorrow." She answered, sitting down next to the boy.
"Why?" He asked, still not fully trusting the other girl.
"Please André. Just please make sure she shows up." Jade begged. She needed Tori to be there. André rolled his eyes.
"Fine, she'll be there. But I don't know how long she'll stay; she's kind of a mess right now." André replied, giving Jade a small, but effective glare.
"Look, I don't expect you to forgive me, I just want you to give me the chance to make things right, even if that means I end up losing Tori in the end." Jade said with guilty eyes. André let out a short sigh.
"She'll come around. She's just hurting right now. Last night she got drunk with Cat. If you really need her to show up tomorrow night, I'll make it happen, but please do not make me regret this." He said managing to keep calm.
"I promise, and thank you." Jade said with a slight smile. André nodded and left.
At the end of the day, with the promised help from a very hesitant André, she had it all planned out. This Sunday was the day of the Full Moon Jam, she would do her performance that night, and Andre's job was simple, all he had to do was get Tori to show up. Jade was excited but she was extremely nervous. This was her last chance, if she didn't get it right, she would lose Tori forever.
When the night of the Full Moon Jam arrived, Jade was overwhelmed by nerves. She looked out into the crowd, and much to her surprise, André kept his promise and managed to convince Tori to show up. Jade smiled but the smile quickly faltered when she saw that Tori was there with a guy. She studied the guy carefully and she recognized him as the guy from Nozu. Chad? But luckily his obnoxious friend was nowhere to be seen.
When the dancers currently on the stage had finished performing, Jade knew she was next. She ignored the sudden doubt, nerves and the need to throw up as she walked onto the stage. She walked up to the microphone and greeted the crowd.
"This song is dedicated to someone special." She said as she locked eyes with Tori, who was now standing far away from the guy she was sitting with. Jade couldn't help but smile at that.
As soon as a portable keyboard was brought out onto the stage, Jade played the first note and started to sing.
I see it in the way you would do
When no one else could ever get through
Holding back till I come around
Time and time again you wait for me to come in
And did you really look my way?
'Cause no one could have seen this coming
She had thought out her song choice very carefully, she had learned the notes for the song, and learned the lyrics. She was sold at the first verse of the song. It had talked about how she always had her walls up around everybody else, but when it came to Tori, she just let her in.
So I can and I will and you'll see your hero come running
Over and over tonight
And I do wanna love you
If you see me running back
And I do wanna try
Because if falling for you girl is crazy
Then I'm going out of my mind
So hold back your tears this time
To Jade the chorus explained how she felt about falling for Tori, she truly felt like she was going out of her mind falling for her, but she didn't care.
Me, I'm used to being tired and bloody
But you believed that I could be somebody
You put your world on hold for me
Gave away to follow failure through the fire
I need you to know I will
Believe me girl I'm so tired of running
I just wanna hold your hand
Stare at you like you've got everything I need
This was Jade's favorite verse out of the entire song. It perfectly explained everything that had happened in their relationship. Jade was always at a constant battle with the world but then Tori came in and made her believe in herself. Tori gave up her chance with a huge record company just to stay with her. Jade was tired of running from her problems, and she knew that if she held Tori's hand or just looked at her, none of her problems would even matter.
And what if I never said to you I was dynamite
And what if I never told you I'm afraid to cry
What if I never let you down
And said I'm sorry for the nights I can't remember
What if I never said to you I would try
The rest of the song just gave little hints about why she was singing it in the first place. She was in love with Tori Vega, and she had to screw up a lot along the way to realize it, but she finally got it.
After Jade was done her performance she got a rally of applause from the audience, but their opinions didn't matter. She just needed to know what Tori thought. When she saw Tori walking up the stairs to the stage, she suddenly felt that nervousness return to her stomach. When Tori was finally standing in front of her she could barely breathe.
"I'm sorry." Tori was apologizing. Jade chuckled.
"Shouldn't I be the one apologizing here, Vega?" Jade asked once she finished laughing. Tori shook her head.
"No, I was a total assface about what happened. I should've let you explain." Tori said, shifting her gaze from Jade's eyes to her lips then back again. Jade too that as a sign, so she took the chance.
The kiss wasn't rough or rushed, it was soft and calm. Neither of the girls wanted to end the kiss in fear of all of this just being a dream. The loud roar of clapping and cheering from the audience startled them out of the lip-lock. They both blushed as they realized what they had done in front of the entire school.
"Apology accepted." Jade said as she grabbed Tori by the hand and lead her off the stage.
Jade was beyond happy. She had Tori back, and soon she would exact her revenge on Beck for breaking them up in the first place. Things were finally going to be normal again and even if they weren't she could live with that, as long as she had her beautiful girlfriend by her side.
Okay, so I'm sorry if this chapter seemed rushed, but that's only because it was. The song is called "For The Nights I Can't Remember" by Hedley.
I feel like this is a good place to end the story. I have a few ideas for a sequel, but I'm not sure if I should make it or not. Let me know what you think?
And if this is the end, thanks to all the committed readers who stayed for the entire story. I really appreciate all the reviews and such. I hope to hear from you in the future.
