"UP UP UP!" Joe yelled as he banged on my door. I groaned and chucked my pillow at the door.
"GO AWAY!" I yelled back. Trisha groaned and snuggled her face into my shoulder.
"DUDE! UP NOW OR I'M THROWING YESTERDAY'S UNDERWEAR AT YOU!" Joe threatened. That got me up. I carefully untangled Trisha's limbs from my own and walked quietly across the room to the door and opened it. Joe was standing there with 2 cups of coffee, one half empty, which was probably his, and a full one, black, most likely for me. I grabbed the full cup and sipped it... mmm... coffee... "Dad said 5 minutes, so hurry up." Joe said. I nodded and sipped my coffee again... mmm... not as good as Starbucks, but still good. I didn't have the heart to wake my sleeping beauty, so I left her a note that I would be back at ten to see her before the sound check.
A few hours later - DEMI POV
After we got all of our stuff, we got back into the limo and headed to the spa to get ready. The second we stepped out of the limo, we were greeted by what seemed at least half the staff and ushered into our own private suite to be primped, pampered and styled for the show.
We're finally on our way to Pasadena. Instead of our limo that we had for the day, which was actually with the girls, we had a blacked out Tahoe. We followed Tonya's directions and pull in to her driveway and to the back of the house to hide it. We actually made it to the house about five minutes ahead of schedule. Tonya had left the back sliding glass door unlocked for us so we could get in and set up and then hide so we wouldn't be seen until it was time for us to make our presence known. We grabbed our stuff and went inside.
About 3:00 - Demi's POV
I can't believe we look so fabulous! We just left the Spa ready for the award show. The driver told us that we had one more stop before we were to go to the awards. I can't figure what it is because the boys said that they would meet is there. We pulled up in front of Calvin Klein. Were we supposed to pick something up for the boys? "What are we waiting on?"
Kevin's POV - A few minutes earlier
"Argh!" I hear from where Joe was getting ready.
"Dude, what wrong?" I say but as I come around the corner, I couldn't help but laugh. Joe whirled around with makeup pad in hand trying to cover up the mark on his head. I'm not sure if he noticed, but, the color of cover-up that he was using didn't match his skin tone at all. And this isn't one of those color thingies that only a gay makeup artist would notice. No, he was using CHOCOLATE BROWN.
"Hey guys. What's so... BWAHAHAHA!" Nick burst into laughter as he walked into the room. Joe pouted.
"Is it REALLY that bad? Maybe I should use more cover up..." Joe lifted the pad to his face, but before he could put it to his face, Nick had snatched it from him.
"Now, Joey, you don't want to put so much of that on." Nick started looking at me for a way to explain why. I shook my head. I can't really come up with an excuse for why not.
"Why, Nicky?" Joe asked. Nick opened and closed his mouth several times, kind of resembling a fish... a curly haired fish...
"Because you'll look too much like a girl?" My voice raised an octave or two at the end of my sentence. Joe sighed and put the cover-up on the counter.
"I guess that you're right." He admitted. "I mean, look at me already, with my girly thighs... and my soft and bouncy hair." He shook his head slowly, like in one of those horrid shampoo commercials, to prove his point. I rolled my eyes in response. Whatever you WANT, Joseph...
"Hey Kev... " Nick said quietly. I looked at him, and he motioned towards the window. I looked outside and saw that the limo, that was containing the girls, had arrived. I looked at Joe, who still had his face half covered in what looked like chocolate and sighed... One of the girls in there had to have a cover-up that matched Joe's complexion... right?
Trisha's POV- Meanwhile...
"Um... excuse me... driver?" Demi asked through the little window separating us from the driver. "Why are we here?" Instead of answering verbally, he motioned towards the building. All our heads snapped to the side and watched as Joe, Nick and... sigh... Kevin...walked out and towards us. The driver got out and opened the door for them, and they slid themselves in, all looking like they'd just walked off the runway... except for Joe. I swear to God, I have never laughed so hard in my life. At least one fourth of his face was covered in mocha colored cover-up.
"What. did. you. do. to. your. face?" I asked, laughing between each word. Joe looked at me in confusion.
"What do you mean?" He asked. Demi rolled her eyes and pulled a mirror out of her purse and held it up for Joe to see his reflection. Joe grabbed the mirror. "I don't see what the big deal- AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Joe screamed like a little girl, making everyone laugh.
"How could you not have known?" Demi asked. Joe shoved the mirror away. "Didn't you look in the mirror while putting it on?"
"Well... you see... Jordie taught me how to put cover-up on without looking in the mirror!" Joe exclaimed, pointing at Jordie.
"You never know when you're going to need to put makeup on sans mirroire." She said, her voice fading into a flawless french accent. I had to admit it, she was right.
Demi groaned. "Ugh, just come here... I'll fix it." She said, pulling some cover-up out of her bag. "You're lucky that I always carry your shade around, just in case." Joe smiled, and she worked on fixing his big mistake. When she was done, she handed him the mirror again. Joe studied his face and grinned as widely as he could.
"Thanks, Demz, you're the best! I love you!" He said quickly, and then he hugged her. Demi stiffened automatically.
Oh-My-Goodness... He dropped the 'L' bomb...
Joe released Demi after two seconds after he realized that she was not returning his hug. "What's wrong, Demi?" he asked, with a look of genuine concern on his face.
"You... you mean it? You love me?" She asked sheepishly.
Joe smiled his signature smile and wrapped his arms around her. "Of course I do. I love you with my whole heart." To top it off, he released her and pulled her into a very passionate kiss. I watched Demi's face change from awe to surprise to pleasure. After about a minute, Kevin cleared his throat to remind them that there were other people there. They pulled away from each other, completely flushed (whether it was from the kiss or the embarrassment I'm not sure) Suddenly, it was really awkwardly quiet in the limo. It was... well... it was awkward.
"I'm bored." Jordie stated after a few minutes, but no one responded. Jordie rolled her eyes. "I'm booooooooooooooooored." She whined.
"What do you want us to do about it?" Aly asked. Jordie shrugged.
"I don't know... OH WAIT! I DO! Someone stole a cookie from the cookie jar! Nicky stole a cookie from the cookie jar!" She exclaimed.
Nick feigned shock and pointed at himself and asked "Who me?"
"Yes you." Demi, Aly, Joe and Jordie said together.
"Couldn't be!" Nick exclaimed.
"Then WHO?" We all asked together. Nick pondered for a moment and pointed at me.
"Trisha stole the cookie from the cookie jar!" He accused. I rolled my eyes.
"Who, me?" I asked.
"Yes you!" Everyone said together. This game went on until we arrived back at the Jonas household to pick up Cody and Drew. They got in and each sat next to their respective girlfriends. It was great that we were all dating, so that no one ever felt like the third wheel. Not that they ever really would. We were so tight that it wasn't even funny... Though I don't really get why that would be funny.
For our dresses, we all were wearing completely different styles. Jordie, Andy and Aly had gone the more vintage route, and even there were wearing different eras. Aly was dressed in a black 1920's flapper dress Aly's Dress, which looked amazing on her. Jordie had gone for the 1960's look, and let me tell you, she looked like she had just walked off the set of Hairspray, but it worked for her. Jordie's Dress Her dress was a light yellow, and she called it 'the cupcake dress'. Andy had gone for a 1940's dress. It was by far my absolute favorite dress. It was leopard print on top, and then a dark green for the rest of the dress. Andy's Dress
Demi's dress was... different... in a good way. It was made with beige, black and purple sheer fabrics layered on top of each other, and there was a belt around her midsection. It was a really nice dress. Demi's Dress
For me, I had decided that you could never go wrong with a strapless, classical, little black dress. Trisha's Dress It wasn't so short that I had to worry about anything showing, but it was short enough for Kevin to be staring at my legs, which I had called him on a few times. He didn't deny it.
Finally, we got to the red carpet for the AMAs. Our chauffeur opened the door for us, and we each exited, one by one, and then started to walk down.
"Ow! Darn!" I heard, and then I heard someone fall behind me.
"Joe? Are you okay?" I asked behind me. I heard him chuckle.
Ever since Joe broke up with me, It has been so hard to sing my current single, Love Story, which I had written with him in mind. And tonight, I have to perform at the AMA's with Joe watching... And her... I couldn't even bring myself to say her despicable name. I have to get him back! But how... I know what I'll do. I'll sing 'White Horse' to make him think that he can never have me, and that will make him want me again. They have this swing set up for me to sit on when I sing and I got them to make sure it was facing toward Joe, saying that it's purely a stage preference for me. I really just wanted to see his reaction. I am so good! By the end of the night, Joseph Adam Jonas will be mine!!
The stage was dark just long enough for me to get on the swing and take my seat. They put a soft spotlight on me and the music started playing. I made an effort to look at Joe when I sang parts of the song but every time I looked at where he was sitting, he wasn't looking at me, or even listening for that matter. He's totally engrossed in that.....girl. Playing with her dull brown hair, kissing her manly knuckles. It was repulsive. So, I got off the swing and walked down a part of the stage that would get me closer to him to get his attention. But, yet again, I still didn't his attention! I did all I could do, and then walked off stage with some of my dignity intact. So, I waited for him backstage, and then as soon as he walked around the corner, I grinned like as Cheshire Cat. "Joey!"
That performance was absolutely CRAMAZING! (Crazy plus amazing) In all the times that we've performed 'Tonight' during the tour or any other time, we've never been as amazing as we were tonight. He he... tonight. We didn't have a single slip up, and the audience just pumped us up so much. I was waiting for Nick and Kevin to get dressed (They're honestly such girls) I decided that I would go walk around for a bit backstage. K2 and the Prez have my number. As soon as I walked around a corner and saw her hideous bleach blond hair, I tried to turn around and walk away.
"Joey!" Taylor squealed as she launched herself at me.
"Hey, Taylor... uh... Nice performance..." I said, trying to convince her that I was actually listening. Truth is, I didn't want to pay attention to her.
"I miss you."
I could tell that Joe was trying to get away from me and back to her, but I just wouldn't have it. I promised myself that I would be back with Joe by the end of the night, and nothing was going to change that.
"Uhm, well... Tay- They're about to announce who won the award we're nominated for... Oh look!" Joe grabbed his iPhone from his pocket. "Hey Kev... what? They're announcing it now? Okay... bye. I've got to go..."
"Your phone is off." I observed. Joe looked at it and sighed.
"So it is..." He turned to leave.
"Joey! Wait!" I called. He turned back around. "I have to ask you something."
"What is it?" He asked, obviously annoyed. I saw her come around the corner and I grinned.
"Will you just kiss me already?" And then I knotted my hands in his hair and puled him into a kiss.
I stopped dead in my tracks. Taylor had grabbed Joe and pulled him into a kiss. I could tell straightaway that Joe did not initiate the kiss by the way he was standing. It was the same way he was standing when Rachael had tried to get back with him. Joe pushed her away and wiped his mouth on his sleeve. "Taylor!! What are you doing?"
I walked up to them and put my arm around his waist to prevent me from slapping her " I know exactly what she trying to do. She is trying to steal MY boyfriend! And it's NOT going to happen. I swear to god, Blondie, if you come after Joe and me again, you won't be able to tell the difference between your face and your pancreas."
And with that, I took Joe's arm and led him away from a stunned Taylor and toward our seats. "You're not mad at me, are you?" Joe asked quietly as soon as we were a good bit away from Taylor. I stopped and turned to face him. "What? Mad at you? No! Of course not! I saw the whole thing. I know that she was coming on to you and you made me proud the way you never wavered in your love for me." I was beaming until Joe place his finger over my lips while a huge smile came over his face. "Just shut up and kiss me."
When we finally made it back to our seats (after trying to fix our hair and wrinkled clothing so that we didn't look like we'd just been making out), Nick and Kevin had already been back for a few minutes. "Where have you two been?" Trisha asked when she saw us heading over. "Demi solved the Taylor problem." Joe smiled widely. I slapped his arm lightly as everyone giggled. He had given us away. As we took our seats, Kanye West had just finished accepting his second award for the night and was heading backstage, and before anyone could ask what happened the announcer came over the sound system. "Now, here to present the T-Mobile Breakthrough Artist Award, she has starred in all three 'High School Musical' movies, Miss Ashley Tisdale!!!" Joe and Nick started switching seats so that they were sitting next to Kevin, who was on the end of the aisle. "We'll talk about it later." Joe whispered to everyone. As Ashley talked about the award and the nominees, Kevin told the rest of us that if they won (which I know that they will, despite their competition) that we should meet them at the back door because we were leaving early to get to the restaurant that they had gotten reservations at and so we would miss a bunch of the traffic leaving the venue. Drew and Cody assured them that they would get us all back there in time, and I immediately knew something was up. Trusting Drew and Cody to get us somewhere on time? That was like putting a drug addict in a room full of heroine and trusting him not to shoot up. Just then, Ashley's cell phone started going off, indicating that they had sent her the winner. "And here's the text message, now. And the winner of the T-Mobile Breakthrough Artist Award is Jonas Brothers!"
"Quelle surprise." Jordie said sarcastically under her breath.
"We won!" Joe exclaimed. We each hugged the brothers in turn before they went on stage, of course, Trisha, Andy, and I gave them a kiss on the cheek. Kevin led the way to the stage and got the award. "Thank you so much everybody!!" Joe interjects,"Thank you very much!!" Kevin continued,"This is a dream come true. We have the best fans in the world." Nick finished,"We love you so much! Thank you!" Then Ashley led them backstage. While Jimmy was introducing the next performer, Drew and Cody motioned for us to head backstage. After 15 minutes of fighting our way though the throngs of celebs and backstage help, we finally made it to the backstage door. Just as soon as we made sure that we had all made it together, our big winners had just finished their last interview and had made their way to the back stage door. "Let's get in the car before we start celebrating." Nick said as we walked out in a single file line and got into our limo that was waiting for us there.
"Man, I can't wait for next weekend!" Cody said as we got into the limo. I elbowed him to tell him to shut up and gave him a look that said "shut up or I'll kill you". "What?" Cody asked. I motioned my head toward the girls and and he finally got it though is head what I meant. "Oh, what's going on next weekend?" Jordie asked. I interjected," Oh, Cody's got an audition next Friday." I lied to save our surprise and it worked. "Right." Cody said quickly "For this... uh... Movie!" "A movie! Really? What's it about?" Demi asked. Crap, more people involved. "I don't know yet but it's for a DC movie." Cody added in very smoothly.
I hear a snicker behind me, "You can ACT?" We all turned and looked to see Nick trying not to laugh hysterically. Andy smacked Nick in the back of the head. "Nicholas Jerry Jonas, you apologize right now that was so mean."
But thankfully, right before Nick can say anything, the limo comes to an abrupt stop, causing everyone to get thrown toward the front of the limo. "Sorry about that," The driver said. By the time we all got untangled and straightened out, we had reached the restaurant, Spark Wood Fire Grill. It was different from Mr. Chow's and the Ivy (all those places that all the other celebrities go to) and everyone liked it. Our table was almost ready when we arrived, so we girls excused ourselves to the ladies room.
As the girls left to go to the ladies room (Why must they always go together? Though, the timing was kind of ideal, I still ask myself WHY? Do their bladders have a timer or something?), I smacked Cody in the back of the head. "Dude, what were you thinking? You almost spoiled the surprise!" I hissed. Cody flinched.
"I'm sorry. It slipped." He whined.
"Dude, I'm sorry about what I said in the car. It wasn't cool." Nick said quietly.
"Have you guys decided what you want to drink?" Abi asked as she cut Joe off.
"I'm not giving you death glares." Joe whined. "I just really have to pee." We all cracked up as Nick and Andy got up to let Joe out so he could go to the bathroom.
"He's going to be gorgeous when he gets older." Jordie said dreamily. Cody frowned and Jordie kissed him on the cheek. "Don't worry, I don't like younger guys. And I prefer blonds, they make me feel smart."
Please leave us reviews!!! They're better than Jonas Kisses (well, maybe).
