Love Me, Love Me Not (JB Lovestory) Part 9

This picks up where the quizzes left off...sorry I know it has been quite a while.

Chapter 1

Singing Songs

Joe and Nick had started singing together and Kevin had also started working with them. They were getting to be great! Nick had made an appointment for them to make a demo with the producer and they were so excited and nervous about that. They have 3 days now until then to perfect the song. They decided to start with "When You Look Me in the Eyes" which I absolutely love! Speaking of love, Jacob and I have gotten a lot closer. We spend a whole lot of time together, mostly when we are helping the guys prepare, but we have started getting more serious. I love Jacob, but I'm worried that we may be moving too fast now. I mean, we are still in high school. We don't even know if we are going to go to the same college, let alone live in the same state! It worries me, but then again, I think about what might happen if I didn't have Jacob. For a short while I thought that Nick might possibly like me, but since talking to this producer he has started almost ignoring me and is focusing so intently on his music. So I know that we have no shot. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if Nick was my Jacob. I need to quit thinking about that tho because I know that won't happen and I'm lucky to have Jacob...I mean, I do love him right? Thoughts for another day.
I put up my journal and got ready. I was going to listen to the boys perform and then I was meeting Jacob for ice cream.
Joe: BROOKE! I haven't seen you in like a century!
I laughed.
Me: Joe, I saw you last night.
Joe: Oh...right. haha well I still missed you.
Me: haha of course. Hey Nick
I tried to get his attention as he walked past me, without looking up.
Nick: Oh hey Brooke.
I let my hand that was waving at him fall to my side and released a heavy sigh as I turned to Joe.
Me: What is with him?
Joe: He...is just really focused. That's all.
He sounded like he was trying to hide something, but I let it go.
Me: Well I'm meeting Jacob downtown in 30 minutes so lets hear the song.
Joe went and grabbed a mic and Kevin grabbed his guitar. Nick was sitting at the piano for this song. I was so jealous of how many instruments he could play. They started and I got lost in the song, as always.
Me: That was amazing guys. Those producers would have to be deaf not to love you.
The boys smiled and gave me hugs as I got up, but Nick just walked off.
Me: Nick?
Nick: What?
Me: You tell me. Since when do you not hug me goodbye?
He came back and gave me a half-hearted hug.
Nick: Bye.
Me: Really? If it bothers you that much then don't worry about it.
I grabbed my keys and left for my car to go see one person that would give me a great hug, and a kiss.

NICK'S POV
I watched as she left. Then all of a sudden I felt somebody slap my head.
Me: Hey! What was that for?
Joe: Acting like a moron.
Me: What did I do?
Kevin: Really? You are that stupid?
Joe: What, if you can't date her, you can't be her friend at all?
Me: I don't know what you are talking about.
I tried to go into the other room but they followed me.
Joe: Don't just walk off.
Me: I don't have to talk to you right now.
I shut my door and fell into my bed. I heard him walk off. I reached over and opened my top drawer. I felt myself smile as I pulled out a picture of me and Brooke. What did I do wrong? I know that I need to be happy for her, but I can't be while she is dating another guy. I guess this is what I get for dating Kaitlyn. I knew that was a bad relationship. Why did I let it last for so long? I'm so stupid. I just hope this music deal works out so at least I have something to be happy about. I need to go to the pond just to think.

BROOKE'S POV
I pulled into the parking lot and saw Jacob waiting outside his car. I smiled as he came over and pulled me to him by my waist and into a kiss. It was a long one. When we broke apart I smiled.
Me: Good to see you too.
He smiled back and grabbed my hand to walk inside. We ordered some ice cream and found a small booth. We talked for a while and then he mentioned something about kids.
Me: Kids?
Jacob: Well not right now of course but someday.
Me: We don't need to be even thinking about kids right now. Don't you think that is a little fast?
Jacob: I didn't mean it like that.
I still felt uneasy but I let it go. After a while he had to leave for a meeting and so he kissed me goodbye and I got in my car. I parked at my house but I didn't want to go inside, so I headed for the pond to clear my head. I was almost there before I noticed Nick sitting there with his feet dangling off of the dock.
Me: Nick?
Nick: Brooke. What are you doing here?
Me: I just needed to think. What about you?
Nick: Same. Do you want to sit down?
I nodded and sat beside him. We talked about random things and then I started talking about my future and how confused I was. I was in the middle of a sentence when all of a sudden Nick leaned in and kissed me. It wasn't extremely long, but enough to shut me up. It took my breath away, the way that kissing Jacob used to. I couldn't speak but after a few minutes of silence, Nick found words.
Nick: I have been meaning to tell you this for a while and I'm really sorry that I did that since you are still dating Jacob, but I couldn't help myself. I really like you Brooke.
I still couldn't speak but I nodded and managed a hoarse whisper.
Me: It's okay.
We got up and I tried to leave but I couldn't move. I heard a twig crack beneath someone's foot and saw Kevin walking towards us.
Kevin: Hey guys! I'm glad you 2 are talking again.
Nick: Yeah well I'm going to go practice some more.
He turned to me.
Nick: Will you come by again tomorrow and listen to us?
Me: For sure. I have homework I will see you guys tomorrow.
I finally managed to make my feet move. What had just happened? This couldn't be. I loved Jacob. Didn't I?
