thanks :) why anon?- will do. We update as fast as we can. :)
So as you guys hopefully and probably know, we have been updating this quite a bit. In return we just need to know
“Babe, can I go with the boys?’
“Yes! I’m not going to make you do anything you don’t want to do. Have fun. We’ll catch up.”
“You’re the best.” He exclaimed and kissed me quickly before running up to the guys.
I started walking with Taylor, whilst pushing Jasey. She looked at me as if to say, what was that about?
“He just asked me if he could go with the guys. What’s up with that? Of course he can. He isn’t my puppy.” I look saddened
“Don’t worry about it. Alex was talking about it to me, his last girlfriend was really possessive and wouldn’t let him do anything, when she said he couldn’t be in All Time Low, they broke up. He’s probably still in that routine. Just talk to him about it?”
I nodded. “So what’s new with you and Alex?” I asked nonchalantly
“Well last night Alex told me he loved me, and I told him I loved him and we uh kind of did it.” She blushed, but air marks around “did it”.
“Aww! He said it first? That’s so cute. This morning I thought jack was asleep, so I just whispered, “I love you Jack Barakat.””
“He was awake?” Taylor guessed.
“Yep, and he asked me if I meant it. I told him I did and he said he wanted to say it to me too, but he didn’t want to scare me off. I know, I know we’ve only been together literally a few days, but it just feels right, ya know?”
“I’ve seen you guys, it’s legit so cute. Alex even agreed.”
We kept walking and ended up finding the boys on a ride, and we watched them ride and then saw their green faces as they got off the ride. We got them to sit down and drink some water. They were better after that, and then they went on a few more rides; we all had lunch and then I had to go get ready for tonight, and so did Jack. He dropped me home and took his car home. He would pick me up at 5.
I rang Taylor, “Tay! I don’t know what to wear tonight!”
“Ok, We’ll be right there.”
She hung up. We? Who was ‘we’? I soon enough found out when she and Alex came through my door, Tay instructed Alex to supervise Jasey and then told me to jump in the shower, when I got out she gave me a dress and a jacket and I put them on. I came out inspecting myself in the mirror. The dress was a boob tube design, plain black and stopped three quarter thigh, teamed with a grey crop jacket I had to admit, I looked good. She curled my hair and done my make-up, I didn’t complain. I walked out to dress Jasey and Alex’s jaw dropped,
“Stacey you look fuckin’ hot.” I blushed, and thanked him, Taylor agreeing with him and having no problem with him giving me the compliment, obviously Alex and I had no feelings for each other.
I thanked Tay for all the help, and her and Alex left not 5 minutes before Jack arrived at my door knocking impatiently. I opened the door, and he stood there completely lost for words, I felt myself blush but I was happy Tay had my make-up thick enough it wouldn’t show too much.
“Uh Jack, you’re drooling.” I said, he wasn’t but I kind of wanted him to speak.
“Um, you look so beautiful. I mean not that you don’t usually but I mean, come on, have you looked in a mirror? Babe, you’re stunning.” I kissed him then and he supported my back with his hand, we got a little too enthusiastic and with regret I had to break away from him.
“We have to go babe.”
He grabbed Jasey’s bag and we jumped in my car as it was easier than changing the baby seat into his car. It was a short drive to his place and I wasn’t nervous, much. Before Jack opened the door he looked at me and Jasey, “I love you two.” And then he kissed Jasey on her head, and me on the lips. We opened the door,
“Mum, Dad, April, this is Stacey and Jasey.”
I looked at his sister, whom glared at me. She seemed to be about two or three years older then Jack and I so that made her 21-ish. We all sat at the table, and tucked into the delicious feast Jack’s parents had made. They asked all the usual question and commented on Jasey and how gorgeous she was, and how nice I was for Jack and they were glad I was with him.
April spoke up, “So you went and got knocked up aye?”
“It’s a long story actually. Uh.” I stuttered
“Yeah, you’re a mad slut.”
I couldn’t believe this. I grabbed jasey’s bag and her, I paused.
“Thank you for the lovely dinner, but I have to go.”
I ran outside buckling Jasey into her seat, fast. I got in the drivers seat and Jack opened my door just as I shut it, he took my hand and pulled me out of the car, I collapsed into his arms sobbing.
“I’m sorry. The last time I was called a slut was when Jasey’s father screamed it at me in the courthouse and when Mum and Dad kicked me out, ‘You’re a slut Stacey! No daughter of ours!’ they said.”
Jack walked me to the passenger side and asked me to stay there a moment, he had to pop inside for a second and then he would drive me home.
I went inside,
“APRIL! How dare you! She isn’t a slut; she was raped by her ex god dammit!”
April shuddered and spoke, “I, I, I, I, I, didn’t know.”
“Of course you didn’t, you didn’t give her a chance. You hated her before you even knew her. I’m taking her home, and I’ll probably stay if she wants me too, though I doubt she’ll ever want anything to do with me or our family, ever again.”
I walked out and drove Stacey home, we stayed silent the whole car ride, she took Jasey inside and put her to sleep, and I stood in her lounge room, waiting for her to come out.
“Thank you for driving me home.” She spoke
“It’s okay. I’ll just head back home now, I’m sorry about April.” I apologised and walked in the direction of the door.
“Jack wait,” I turned around “Why are you going?”
“I thought you wouldn’t want anything to do with me anymore.” I admitted
“Jack I love you.”
I embraced her, and kissed her breathing heavily and we made our way to her bedroom. She slipped my shirt over my head and I began to take her dress off. Once it was off, we continued kissing our hands roaming each others bodies. Suddenly she stopped and ran out of the room in just her bar and underwear, she shut the bathroom door, and I could hear her sobbing.
“Stace, can I come in?” I asked after 5 minutes
She opened the door. “I’m sorry Jack, I can’t do this, I thought I could but I just can’t.”
“Do what? Are you breaking up with me?” my lip dropped into a frown.
“I-I-I can’t have sex with you Jack. I haven’t since you know.” She referenced the rape, “If you want to break up with me I understand.”
“Stacey, It doesn’t matter. I’ll be ready whenever you are. I’m not breaking up with you, I love you.”
We walked back into her room, and she put on pj bottoms and a singlet, I put pj bottoms on but left my top bare. She hugged me and I leant in to kiss her, “Is kissing okay?”
She nodded and we kissed for a little bit, and then climbed into bed, both pretty tired from our day. I wrapped my arm around her and buried my head into her neck as we spooned, falling into a deep sleep.
I woke up and glanced at my clock, the little red numbers let me know that it was 7.30am. I rolled over to put my cheek on Jack’s chest, I lay there for a moment and murmured, “I love you Jack Barakat.” Little to my knowledge he in fact was awake.
“Oh I um thought you were uh um I thought you were asleep.” I stuttered
“Did you mean it?”
I paused because I knew that I meant it. I’d known Jack for a few days now, and yeah that was really early to tell someone you loved them. Jack and I had spent all our spare time together these past few days, and I discovered a real connection, but did he? I had never felt so strongly about someone, ever. Sure, I’d had boyfriends, but this was more, so much more. I really believe I do love him.
“Stace?” Jack broke me out of my thoughts.
I lifted my head off his chest and looked at him, “Yes I did. I love you.”
I felt so nervous, the seconds passed like minutes, my heart was beating like it was going to spontaneously burst from my chest, my stomach sunk and I felt light headed. Why oh why did I open my big mouth?
“Stacey, I love you too. It’s just I thought it was too early to say it and I’d scare you off, or something. Also I didn’t know if you felt the same. But yes, I love you, and Jasey.”
He leant down kissing my softly on the lips, I blushed. I couldn’t believe that finally, something was going right in my life. I had a boyfriend who loved me for me, and loved my daughter almost like she were his own. I kissed him back, and he pulled away too quickly.
“My mum really wants to meet you and Jasey. She’s been pestering me; do you think maybe you’d like to meet her, and the rest of my family?” Jack asked me.
“Of course. Is tonight too soon?”
Jack smiled and kissed me on my forehead before ringing his Mum and letting her know. I went and fed Jasey and dressed her for the day. We, as in Taylor, Alex, Rian, Zack, Jack, Jasey and I were hanging out. We were all going to a carnival that was in town for the weekend, and then I had dinner at Jack’s tonight.
Jack was ready in no time and watched Jasey whilst I changed; I wore blue skinnies, black thongs and a floral singlet. I packed Jasey’s baby bag and then out her in the car. I shut the door and got in the passenger side as Jack was driving today. He placed his hands on either side of my face and pulled me closer to kiss him.
“What was that for?” I asked a little confused
“What? Can’t I kiss my own drop dead gorgeous girlfriend?” he seemed shocked
“I’m not drop dead gorgeous,” he frowned at ne when I said this. “But feel free to kiss me whenever you want.” He smiled
“I’m going to take you up on that.” And with that he kissed me again.
“I love you Jack, but we really should get going.”
With that we drove to the carnival, the biggest smile on all our faces. We pulled up the same time as the others, and Alex squealed “RIDES.” and ran off in the direction he was pointing, and Rian and Zack followed. Jack grabbed my hand and pulled me away from Taylor and Jasey,
- Feedback please guys? I’ll be posting the next chapter in a few hours or tomorrow :)
I paused and Alex watched for my reaction.
“Yeah?” he replied
“You have helped me through so much and,”
“And?” he cut me off.
“And you can let me finish.” He nodded. “There is no-one I would rather spend the rest of forever with. Alex Gaskarth, I love you.”
I kissed him, and wrapped my arms around him; we stayed embracing for a few minutes.
“Alex?” I pulled away from him
“What’s up?” he looked disappointed that I’d pulled away.
“Is anyone home?”
“No, just us. Why?”
“When will your parents be back?”
“Late tonight. Why?”
“You tell me,” I whispered as I kissed him again, deeper and with more passion than usual. I could feel through the kiss that he was startled, but then he warmed up slowly to it. I lifted his shirt over his head and pushed him down onto the bed, kissing his chest.
“Wait, Taylor are we?”
I nodded. “Only if you want to?”
“Of course I want to.” He kissed me, and we spent the rest of the evening, our bodies entwined and then we fell asleep.
I wanted to hang with Stacey again tonight, so I rang her –
She answered on the first ring, “Hello?”
“Hey, it’s Jack.”
“I know silly, I have caller I.D on my phone.”
“Oh yeah. Um, I was wondering if you wanted to hang out again tonight?”
“Yeah of course. Jasey is a little bit restless though, so you might not get much sleep.”
“That’s okay. I’ll be at your place in like half an hour.”
I told Mum I was going to Stacey’s and she didn’t seem very worried. I packed a bag with some clothes, and headed out the door.
“Hey Jack!” Mum called out
“Haha, we aren’t doing that Mum, but ok sure.”
“Ok. Well when do I get to meet this woman and her daughter?”
“Settle down Mum, I’ve only really got to know her yesterday. You’ll meet them when they’re ready. I love you, bye.”
I jumped in my car and drove to Stacey’s. I knocked on the door, and Stacey called out., “Who is it?”
“Jack.” I replied
“Come in!” she sounded happy.
She was in the bathroom having just bathed Jasey and putting her pj’s on.
“Hey there my beautiful girls.” I greeted them
“Hey” Stacey smiled. “I just have to put Jasey to sleep, make yourself at home.”
She came out 10 minutes later and I jumped off the lounge, pulling her into a swift hug. Resting my hands on her waist I kissed her. “I’ve missed you Stace.”
“It’s been a few hours Jack,” she rolled her eyes. “But I’ve missed you too.”
“Did you want pizza for dinner? I’ve got some money and you look to exhausted to cook and I can’t be bothered.” I laughed
I rang up and ordered it and within the hour it had arrived. I could see Stacey was tired after dinner, so I suggested we go to bed. I lay in bed whilst she had a shower, and then put on her pj’s. She climbed into bed and we snuggled close.
“Jack. You’re taking this so well, most guys don’t look twice at me with Jasey.”
“I don’t know. I really like you, and Jasey. You guys are a package and I’m cool with that. You’re my two favourite girls.” I responded
“Jack will you be my boyfriend?”
“Don’t I ask you that?”
“Are you being sexist?”
“Of course I’ll be your boyfriend.” I kissed her. “Now you should get some sleep, you look awful tired.”
She agreed and fell asleep almost as soon as her head hit the pillow.
yep, understand completely, will try and work on that. thanks for the feedback! :)
I slowly opened my eyes to the blurred sight of Jack still fast asleep with my wrapped up in his arms, as my vision became clearer; I climbed out of bed to feed Jasey. I didn’t want her to suddenly wake up and start crying because then Jack would wake up. I tip toed out and saw Jasey fast asleep, as I moved closer, her eyes opened and she smiled. I picked her up and started feeding her, before she was fast asleep again. As I was putting Jasey back to bed, I felt Jack’s arms wrap around my waist as he leant his face on my shoulder. I smiled before turning around to hug him. It was nearing to 8am and we both had many things to do that day, I had work for starters and Jack had band practice.
We both started getting dressed for the day ahead. Before I headed to work, I had to drop Jasey off at day care. Jack walked me there while he was holding Jasey the whole way there, I think he didn’t mind me having a daughter, in fact it seemed like he loved having her there also as much as I did.
After Jasey was safely in day care, Jack and I walked side to side holding hands, we had arrived at my work finally and Taylor arrived at the same time smiling at both of us.
“Hello both of you, looks like you two had a good night.” Taylor giggled.
Jack and I looked at each other and smiled.
“Yeah we did.” I smiled.
“I better get going.” Jack answered. “I think we have band practice earlier today”
“Yeah you do Jack.” I replied. “Alex has been wondering where you have been.”
“Awww I forgot to text him. I should probably do that.” He stated.
“Well, I hope you two have a good day. I know what you girls will be talking about all day while you work.” He laughed.
He moved towards me and kissed me on the lips before walking down the street.
I turned to Taylor and as soon as we both looked at each other, we had a sudden outburst like a bunch of school girls who had just found out that their crush liked them back.
“So, did Jack stay the night?” Taylor questioned me.
“Umm yeah, he did.” I answered blushing.
“You have to tell me everything once we’ve finished work, deal?” She asked.
“Sure.” I replied grinning.
I couldn’t stop thinking about last night, it just seemed so perfect and all I wanted to do was to spend more time with Stacey and her daughter, Jasey. I rocked up at Rian’s house for band practice about 20 minutes late but I hoped that they would understand why I was late.
“Hey, why are you late? I got your text but it didn’t really explain anything.” Alex greeted me at the door with his arms crossed.
“You spent the night with Stacey, didn’t you?! Alex shouted while giving me a hi 5.
“Uhh yeah I did.”
“I knew it! So what happened?”
Zack and Rian joined into the conversation, like it was story time.
I laughed at that thought.
“Well, we saw each other at the park and then we pretty much spent the rest of the afternoon and night together.”
“Anything else?” Rian said while nudging me.
“Oh and you know….”
“YES?! Tell us!”
“She asked me to stay the night.”
“Oh la la la” Alex joked.
“Shut up!” I said laughing.
“Practice time?” Zack asked.
We all looked at each other and nodded.
I spent all day at work thinking about Alex, times like these where I just wanted to be in his arms and for him to let me know that everything was going to be okay. I cried myself to sleep most nights thinking about my parents but I tried to stay strong so that Alex thought I was fine, even though he could see right through me. It had been easier to overcome this knowing that Alex was there for me and I can honestly say he made me feel beautiful for once in my life, like someone actually cared about me. I would of thought that he would have gone out with a girl that was the typically figure for a guy to like, prettier and everything else but maybe just maybe this time a guy liked me for me being myself and I was the same with Alex. Most girls would flock over the idea that Alex is from All Time Low but I fell head over heels for him, nothing else.
5pm had finally arrived; it seemed that today was never going to end. I was excited because Alex was going to walk to work just to walk me back to his house. I waited outside work for a few seconds before Alex popped out of nowhere.
I instantly smiled.
He kissed me on the lips softly, I felt him smile.
“Hey beautiful” He said.
“Hey” I blushed
“Want to spend a quiet night home together?”
“That’s just what I need right now” I replied.
We walked home hand in hand talking about how our days went. Alex talked about how band practice was and I told him how work went. We were soon at Alex’s house. I felt weird calling it my home, even though I lived there now.
As soon as we got there, we had dinner and headed for Alex’s room ready to spend the night together. We had so much to talk about that night, we talked about everything that was on our minds and about Jack and Stacey, and we had both agreed that they would be so cute together.
“Hey Taylor?” Alex asked.
“Yeah” I replied curious.
“Can I tell you something?” He asked.
“You can tell me anything” I told him.
“Um well, I never told a girl this but…” He paused.
“Tell me, I’m getting worried.”
“I love you.”
