PostSubject: You Do Something To Me - 3 Word Challenge Oneshot   Thu Sep 18, 2008 8:44 pm

Just thought I would post this here incase anyone hadn't read it or whatever Shrug

It was written for the 3 word challenge and as you can probably guess since you're in my area, it's a Jason one Grin





You Do Something To Me


Josie immediately jumped up to answer her room door which had just been knocked, knowing exactly who it would be
“Josie!” the girls screamed as she opened the door and gave her a massive hug
“Hey what’s with the face” Gemma asked as her smile turned to a frown
“The guys are here, in this hotel I’m guessing they must be staying here!” Josie said telling them of the discovery she had made last night
“What? No!” Adele gasped
“Yes I saw Howard yesterday and Mark although they didn’t see me, but we’re gonna run into them at some point aren’t we? They’ll probably be here the same amount of days as us…”
“Yeah I’m sure you will at some point, I’ve just had a though, did you invite she who shall not be named to stay here?” Gemma asked
“Yes I invited Lisa to stay here and whatever happened is in the past so please just leave it and try and be nice when she gets here tomorrow ok?”
“Fine”
“Anyway never mind that, we’ve brought some champagne and stuff to get the party started; after all you’re getting married on Saturday that’s only three days for us to all get pissed as single women!” Adele grinned waving the bottle in front of Josie’s face as they sat down and opened the champagne pouring it into three glasses


The next morning three girls woke up with very sore heads and looking like something that had just crawled up from the bottom of a lake! After much moaning and groaning and getting breakfast brought to their room they made themselves look half human and waited on Lisa arriving. Lisa and Josie had been really good mates up until that weekend all those years ago and since then up until last year they had hardly spoken but Josie wanted Lisa at her wedding, time had made her be able to forgive Lisa and so they started chatting again and the rest is history!
“Lisa!” Josie grinned
“Hiya! Looks like I’ve already missed some of the party, you lot look bloody awful!” Lisa said
“Thanks, but yeah we had a heavy night last night, eurgh I feel rough”
“Right well a bit of shopping should cheer us up are we ready to hit the town?”
“Yeah but I feel I should tell you something though, the guys are staying here in this hotel”
“What guys?”
“Well I saw Howard and Mark yesterday…”
“Ah well let’s just hope we don’t run in to them and enjoy the weekend!”
Off they all went outside to the taxi that was waiting to take them into town, laughing and joking as they stepped in and the taxi pulled away…all the time they had been watched by two pairs of eyes.

Thursday night brought a drink session in the bar, they sat and had a laugh and a giggle about Josie’s old boyfriends, some who were really undesirable and some who they even wondered if they were human, but they were pleased for her now she had found her match in James and they seemed perfect together. As it was getting later the bar was emptying and all that could be heard was the girls raucous laughter as the barman watched with great delight, every so often having a little laugh at the girls behaviour. Josie made her way up to the bar ordering another round of drinks and then patiently waiting on the barman making them.
“Put them on our tab” a voice said from behind, she didn’t need to turn around she would know that soft voice anywhere…that soft Mancunian accent. She felt his shoulder brush against hers as he stood beside her at the bar, but Josie couldn’t even bring herself to look at him
“It’s been a long time” he said quietly
“Yeah” she said finally turning to look at him, into those big blue eyes that had hypnotised her many times before
“You look great Josie, how’s life been treating you? And what are you doing here?
“I’m fine thanks, I’m getting married here on Saturday so we’re having a few girly days before the big event”
“Oh” he said as the two of them stood looking at each other
“I better get back to my friends, nice seeing you Jay” as she turned she saw that the rest of the lads were already sat at a table with the girls and Jason followed her to the table
“Josie” Gary grinned “Nice to see you again luv”
“Yeah you too Gary”
The rest of the night was spent catching up on old times and present day, the only one thing that was never mentioned was that weekend that still brought Josie sad times until this very day…

Josie was the first one up in the morning and decided to venture down to the restaurant for some breakfast. As soon as she walked in her eyes were drawn to the table where Jason was sitting looking out the window.
“Hey Josie” he shouted “Come and join me”
“Ok” she smiled and sat down next to Jason
“So no show today then?” she asked trying to make conversation
“No, day off today and I’m glad because my back’s killing me!” he laughed
“Yeah you’re not getting any younger, maybe you should go for a massage or something”
“You used to be good at that” he winked
“Don’t Jason, just bloody don’t” she snapped
“Don’t what?”
“You know what, it’s inappropriate, I’m getting married tomorrow”
“Yeah” he said, dipping his head down, looking into his tea cup “So you’re happy then?”
“Very” she replied
“Look I’m sorry about what happened but you know we were young and stupid and…”
“It doesn’t matter now” Josie replied quickly not letting herself think of all the good times they had shared, they’re conversation was interrupted when the rest of the girls walked in with Mark and Gary and they all sat together eating breakfast, talking about the tour and the wedding.
“So Josie, big day tomorrow eh? Who is the luck guy then?” Gary asked
“His name is James and we met a couple of years ago, through work and yeah well the rest as they say is history!”
“Right so do we get to meet him and see if he’s an eligible enough suitor for our Jo?”
“He’s arriving tomorrow morning so I guess you might do” she winked
“Aw well I’m glad you’re happy and it’s been great bumping into you lot again, catching up and that”
“Here was me thinking I’d never have to see you again!” Josie rolled her eyes playfully
“Bloody cheek!” Mark said poking his tongue out
“You’re face will stay like that pixie” Josie said ruffling his hair
“Right we’ll be off then, so we’ll see you later alright?”
“Yeah ok have a good day” Josie grinned and the other girls waved as the guys left
“We have to do something too, so we’ll be back as soon as we can ok Josie?” Lisa asked
“What? You’re leaving me here myself?”
“Yeah but we have booked you in for a massage this morning as a treat”
“Aw thanks girls, sounds fab”
They all hugged and went their separate ways arranging to meet up later that day.

Josie lay on the table, as the masseuse worked her magic over her tired and weary muscles, gently easing away all the knots and stresses which had seeped into her body whilst she was planning this wedding, it was bloody stressful and she was glad you only did it once. But as she lay there, her thoughts had turned to Jason again, all those years ago it was like he’d had a power over her and now even though there was nothing going on and she hadn’t seen him for years it was like he was doing it again. Her heart had literally skipped a beat when she had seen him for the first time at the hotel and even though he looked older, a few more lines; he was still her Jay, he looked as handsome as ever and still had the ladies swooning over him, she had seen it with over excited fans in the hotel. She also knew he was still single and wondered why, was it because he was still playing the field? Or had he done to someone else what he had done to her? The thought of the situation brought a few tears to here eyes and then suddenly she realised she was being spoken to…
“Miss…Miss that’s you done now and I hope everything goes well for you tomorrow”
“Oh, sorry was miles away then must be your healing powers!” Josie laughed “Thanks that was bliss, just what I needed” she smiled leaving the health area and wandering off outside into the fresh air as she sat on the small wall, all alone with her thoughts again
“Hey” It was that voice again
“Hiya” she sighed and then carried on looking out over the scenery that surrounded them
“You ok? That was a big sigh?”
“Yeah I’m fine” After a few minutes pause she decided that now was the time “Why?” she asked
“Why?” he asked with a puzzled look
“Yeah why did you do it Jay?”
“Oh” he said as he looked away and took a deep breath
“You know what forget it, it doesn’t matter now anyway” Josie said
“No I want to talk about this we should have talked about it at the time”
“Ok go on then”
“Look I don’t know how it happened, I know that sounds really lame but just let me finish yeah. I had gone upstairs after the party cos it was late and I was tired and drunk”
“I know you called me” Josie giggled at the memory of the conversation “What was it you said again…something about Pink Floyd and me being the brick in your incomplete wall” she burst out laughing
“Ok, ok enough I was drunk! Anyway I called you because I was really missing you, I know we had only been going out a few months but I knew right from the first time I saw you that I loved you”
“Funny way of bloody showing it” Josie mumbled
“So anyway I got back to me room, stripped off climbed in the shower and then got into bed, when I got in Lisa was already in there…don’t ask me how because she wasn’t in there when I had entered the room. One thing led to another I don’t think you want the details and I know I shouldn’t have done it but something just took over. It was the biggest mistake I’ve ever made and as you know she was only trying to use me to get to Mark”
“I know she was , we didn’t speak again since that time until last year you know, I hated her for what she had done” Josie said as the tears threatened to spill down her cheeks
“Look I’m really sorry I just want you to know that”
“Yeah sorry cos you got caught!”
“No I think you know why I’m sorry and why it was a huge mistake”
Josie stared at him blankly, his eyes piercing straight into her suddenly making her feel a bit flustered
“Josie I’ve never had any proper girlfriends since us, you get me now?”
“I…but…I…” she got up and ran to her room, if only they had somehow been able to talk like this at the time but she had left and nobody knew where she had gone, it was her own fault for being so pig headed and stubborn. She turned on her computer to try and take her mind off things, noticing she had an email from James she opened it and read:

I hope you’re having a brilliant weekend hun and not getting too drunk! LOL Anyway I’ll see you tomorrow sweetheart when I finally get to make you mine forever, we’re going to be so happy! Then we get the honeymoon so we can start working on some little James or Josie’s

Love always

James xxxox


I burst into tears and sat there sobbing, a few minutes later the girls came in
“Josie are you alright, whatever is the matter?” Gemma asked
“Yeah come on it can’t be that bad” Adele said passing me a tissue and sitting down next to me
“I…James…and then Jason…chat…all wrong…so stubborn…and I was a complete and utter idiot…” she said through sobs
“Ok you want to start that again cos you’re making no sense” Gemma giggled
“It’s all your bloody fault” I yelled as I stood up and pointed at Lisa
“Me?” she looked at Josie knowing that this moment probably had to come some day
“Yes you, you knew I was going out with Jason and how I felt about him and you muscled your way in there! You didn’t even want him so how in the hell did you think sleeping with Jason was going to get you Mark? You were a right little slut back in them days” Josie shouted, the small vein in the side of her neck was pulsing like a monster that was waiting to be unleashed and she stood and watched as tears started to come from Lisa’s eyes
“Here come the waterworks, that’s it try and make us all feel sorry for you! Well I don’t, not one bit you ruined everything, everything!!!” Josie screamed before finally falling back onto the bed
“Look I know I was a right little bitch but it takes two and I mean he could have said no…”
“Don’t you even dare Lisa, you climbed into his bed, if you hadn’t done that he would never have slept with you and you took advantage when he was drunk”
“Oh yeah cos Jason’s perfect, this is all my fault. Even after what happened you’re still defending him…Oh my God you still love him don’t you? You sad little cow you’ve loved him for all these years and never done anything about it!” she sniggered
“Right that’s it, I want you out of here right now, in fact I want you out of the hotel within the next hour or so help me God…” Gemma shouted in Lisa’s face before she ‘escorted’ her to the door slamming it shut just as she was about to speak
“Come on Jo” Adele said trying to comfort her, there was a heavy silence filling the air for at least a few minutes before anyone spoke again
“Is what she said true Jo, you still love him?” Gemma asked
“I’ve always had feelings for him if I’m being honest”
“But you love James” Adele added
“Yeah” I smiled
“I’m sure you’re just getting jittery about tomorrow and when you get in the room in your gorgeous dress and see James in his manly kilt and all your friends and relatives…”
“Don’t forget about the two most stunning bridesmaids ever” Adele winked making them all laugh
“You know what guys I’m sure you’re right. I think I just need to get some rest today, a good night’s sleep and then I’ll be fine in the morning. You are the bestest friends I could ever ask for, you know that?”
“Of course we know that” Gemma giggled and then we had a group hug. They left me alone for the rest of the night and I lay there thinking about James and Jason and what the girls had said. I had always tried to push Jason to the back of my mind and as soon as I got with James it had started to get easier, but now when I had looked at Jason he still made me feel things I had never felt with anyone else, and that was just with a look; no physical contact or even words. As the night drew on and I glanced at my dress hanging neatly in it’s protective case, I bawled my eyes out. Suddenly everything tomorrow was starting to feel like a sham to me and that I had always settled for second best since I had been with Jason…I flicked on my Ipod and the first song that came on now seemed to make me cry more than ever.

The sound of her mobile phone bleeping was what alerted Josie to the fact it was morning, she rubbed her puffy eyes and picked it up from the pillow on the other side of the bed where she had left it sometime in the early hours of the morning. It was a text from James saying he couldn’t wait to see her in her dress and then help her out of it later on tonight! She half smiled, one part of her wanted to be really excited and jittery about the days events and the other part of her had been having dreams for the past couple of hours and in every scenario that she had dreamt Jason had been by her side and not James. She mentally gave herself a shake
“Come on Josie” her subconscious said “This is ridiculous! You love James and you’re marrying him today, get a bloody grip woman” but her subconscious seemed to have a good Josie and a naughty one!
“I know what you’d like to get a grip of” her naughty subconscious said
“Oh God I’ve got to stop this, James is a great guy and he really loves me”
“Pfft You Know Jason loves you, he so much as said it yesterday”

Contd.


“Aaaaarghhhhhhhhhhhhh” Josie screamed before stepping into a cold shower hoping it would wash away whatever was going on inside her head! The girls knocked on her door and came in with a champagne breakfast, but they knew Josie wasn’t right
“You ok Jo, you don’t look your usual self” Gemma said
“I’m just tired, I didn’t get a lot of sleep last night”
“Ah it’s just jitters, I’m sure you’ll be fine”
“Yeah” Josie said and quietly finished sipping her champagne
“I’m just off to check over a few things and then I’ll be back” Gemma said as she left the room
“Right” Adele smiled “Now she’s gone spill it! I know you’re not alright; what’s going on, are you having second thoughts”
“Oh Adele, I don’t know…it’s Jason and I know James loves me very much and I do love him, I do; but Jason…”
“You love him too don’t you?”
“Don’t be daft, I don’t even know him really he could be a totally different person”
“Come off it Josie, it’s written all over your face! If you think marrying James is a mistake or you are in any doubt at all then you’ve got to stop this now. You’re only hurting James more if you go through with it for the wrong reasons and ultimately you wont be happy either”
“Oh God Adele this is such a mess isn’t it! I wish I had never seen him here this weekend”
“Yeah but if he’s making you think twice about getting married then maybe you don’t love James like you think you do and it’s best to know that now, you know?”
“It doesn’t matter anyway, I have to do this all my family is coming and James’s family and all our friends and this place is costing us a fortune and all the flowers we’ve had specially arranged and the honeymoon is booked and…”
“Stop and take a breath will you! None of that matters it’s what you want that matters, your friends and family will get over it, but if you go through with this then you might not”
“No I have to do it Adele, I do love James and this is what I want”
“Fine I’ll leave you to get ready and try and distract Gemma so you can have a bit of time on your own”
“Thanks you’re a real friend hun and thanks for not judging me”
“No problem, see you in a bit ok?”
“Yeah” Josie smiled and nodded as Adele left the room

A few hours later Josie was stood in front of the mirror in her dress, looking at herself and taking some deep breaths trying to calm her nerves, but her concentration was broken by something being slipped under her door. She walked over and picked up the envelope, hurriedly opening it and opening the letter that was inside:

Josie,

I just wanted to say that as long as you are happy then I am happy. I’m glad you’ve found someone that completes you and makes you feel truly loved. James is one hell of a lucky guy and I hope he realises just how precious you are. Just so you know I kept this photo all this time, the only decent one I had of me and you, I thought you might like to keep it now.

Congratulations babe

Jay xx


Josie looked at the photo and smiled, it was taken in a park in Amsterdam, she had gone to see the lads doing a gig there and the next day spent all her time with Jason. they went to the shops and had a picnic in the park…that was the day that he told her he loved her. It brought tears to Josie’s eyes, in an hour she was supposed to be marrying James, only now was it becoming clear to her that she couldn’t do it, she couldn’t do it to James and couldn’t do it to herself. It would be a lie had Josie said that she didn’t love Jason, the feeling had never gone away it had just been hidden and now it was resurfacing. She grabbed the phone and sent a text to Adele, who arrived at Josie’s room within minutes
“I cant do this” Josie burst into tears as Adele gave her a hug
“I wondered how long it would take you” she smiled looking at Josie “I saw the way you looked at Jason in the bar the other night and I’ve never seen you look at James like that! Look what do you want to do?”
“I just want to get out of here”
“Right I’ll help you sneak out and deal with your family, how does that sound?”
“You would do that?”
“Of course, I’m your mate and I want you to be happy”
“Thanks” she said giving her a massive hug

Exactly one hour later Josie was out of the wedding dress and in a taxi en route to the train station. Adele’s parents had a holiday cottage in the Lake District and they were not using it for another couple of weeks so she said Josie could hide out there until things had gotten sorted out. It was a miracle nobody had seen her sneaking out and now she felt really bad for James, what would Adele tell him and Josie also felt really bad knowing that Adele would be having to deal with the aftermath while she was scuttling off to The Lakes. She was just about to step onto the train and at that point her thoughts were interrupted by someone calling her name
“Josie!! Wait!!”
She turned round to see Jason coming towards her
“Miss the train is about to leave are you getting on or not?” the conductor asked
“Erm…”
“Josie, please wait!” Jason shouted again as he was getting nearer and nearer. She went to step onto the train but Jason pulled her back just in time
“Jay please let me go”
“No, I have to talk to you! Why did you run out like that?”
“Just forget it Jay alright and how did you know I was here?”
“I spoke to Adele, I was trying to find out what was going on and she told me you were here…”
“Look I’m confused ok! I need to get away for a bit”
“Josie please just hear me out and then if you want to go then I wont stop you. I came here rushing after you doesn’t that tell you something? I was a stupid idiot all them years ago, I should have tried to find you but I didn’t even have a clue where to start looking. I’ve never loved anyone like I loved you, sorry love you because I still do, I still love you Josie”
“You know what? When I saw you the other day for the first time, I had feelings that I hadn’t had for such a long time and it scared me and worried me; I put it down to jitters but I don’t think it was and now my family are going to hate me, James is going to hate me…” Josie started to cry and Jason pulled her into a hug, his strong arms wrapping themselves around her body. She looked up into his beautiful blue eyes and stood there frozen as his lips moved forward and brushed hers
“I still love you Josie and I always will please don’t say you’re leaving me again, I don’t think I can take it twice” he sniffed as he looked down at her face
No words were needed and their lips met again as the train pulled away from the station.
“I love you Josie and I’m never letting you go again”
“I love you too Jason” she whispered as he stroked her hair before picking her up and carrying her to the car he had waiting outside…waiting to take them to their destiny.

A destiny which they would never reach…about five minutes from Jason’s flat the driver of their car lost control, hitting another car head on and when Josie came round Jason was lying there bloodied and bruised, lifeless. She screamed out but it was too late, he was already gone, she felt the tears run freely down her cheeks as the paramedics pulled her out, taking her to the ambulance and making sure she was ok.
“Wh…what about my…boyfriend?” she stuttered
“I’m sorry love” even though she had known he was gone the words cut through her like a knife, she sat there watching as they cut him out then covering him over, he was gone and all of a sudden what she thought her destiny was a few minutes ago was now something very different.
