<span style='color:blueviolet'>:wave: Hi there! :lol: So yeah, I've been playing around with this idea for a long time now, and yesterday, it kinda all just came to me. So before I go into the whole planning and preparing, I wanted to get you guys' take on this and see if I should continue with it. There's no title yet, because I have no idea where it's going, but yeah. Let me know... :D

Chapter 1 (Or Something)</span>

<span style='font-family:Times'><span style='font-size:11pt;line-height:100%'><span style='color:deeppink'>“And we are back, here on TRL. This is LaLa comin’ at you on this Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and I’m chillin’ here with JC Chasez, as well as letting a couple of the TRL crew members go home early.â€￾

Contented and warm, I was curled up on the couch of my three-month-new TriBeCa apartment, watching TRL for the first time in months. I know 25-year-olds shouldn’t be allowed to even turn to that show, but I was more than obligated to watch my client-slash-closest-friend while he involuntarily stole the hearts of millions of girls everywhere.

“So JC,â€￾ LaLa began, “I hope you don’t mind me asking – What are you doing tomorrow for Thanksgiving? I know you have a show at Madison Square Garden on Friday, so...â€￾

As the crowd cheered, JC smiled and scratched his right eyebrow, as always. Right back at ya, babe. “Actually, since I can’t be home,â€￾ (Aww.) “I’m spending it with a couple of close friends, like The Guys and my brother and sister are flying in and we’re gonna get together at my place for dinner.â€￾

“That sounds hot. So I know ‘The Guys’ are *NSYNC, so—“

“Of course,â€￾ JC nodded.

“But I know that your boy Justin is like – he’s in Europe promoting, right?â€￾

“Yeah, he’s in London doing his thing. I, uh, actually talked to him today and he really wants to come home, but yeah – you know how it goes.â€￾

“Definitely, definitely. Well, Justin, Happy Thanksgiving, where you happen to spend it,â€￾ LaLa said to the camera.

“Yeah, Happy Turkey Day, man.â€￾

“JC, I gotta thank you for stopping by.â€￾

“My pleasure.â€￾

“Always, always. I heard you sold out The Garden for your show Friday, so congratulations on that.â€￾

“Thank you.â€￾

“And also, good luck. I can’t wait to check that out.â€￾

“Thanks, mama. I hope you enjoy it.â€￾

LaLa smiled graciously and directed her attention back to the camera. “Ladies and gentlemen, JC Chasez! We’re actually gonna kick it to his video right now, which is number two today. Here’s ‘Closer’ on TRL.â€￾

As they shot to Josh’s third hit video, I slowly rose from my sofa to retrieve the phone, knowing that he’d be calling me any second. – He always calls, before he even gets to the car. I headed to the window of my living room and stared at the falling rain, grinning at the sound that it made against the glass.

On cue, the cordless phone vibrated in my hand and ‘J-Sizzle’ marquee’d across the caller ID. “Michelle Alexander speaking.â€￾

“It’s 6PM on Thanksgiving Eve. Give the professionalism a break,â€￾ he replied.

“Oh, you know I don’t stop,â€￾ I smiled, resting on the arm of the couch.

“So how’d I do?â€￾


“I didn’t talk too much?â€￾

“Well, yeah. But it’s the holidays, so you’re allowed to be loquacious.â€￾



“So what did you do today?â€￾

“Not much. I took a nap, went to the doctor, took another nap… Oh! And I got you a couple of holiday concert gigs with the big radio stations.â€￾

“Damn, Chelle, I hate doing those.â€￾

“You do not.â€￾

“Eh. So what did the doctor say?â€￾

“Everything is great. I’m healthy, the baby’s healthy. She just wants me to avoid stress as much as possible.â€￾

“I see.â€￾

“Yeah, so watch yourself, Mr. Longoria.â€￾

“I always do.â€￾

“Well apparently you weren’t last week. Us Weekly is still calling me about that stunt you pulled in Miami last month.â€￾

He chuckled, knowing good and damn well that he was wrong for that one. “Chelle, I swear, I didn’t even touch the girl.â€￾

“Whatever, superstar. I got it covered. Just don’t do anything else.â€￾

“I’m on it. The last thing I need is a pissed off, pregnant publicist.â€￾

“Nice alliteration, C.â€￾

“I try.â€￾

“So, what time is dinner tomorrow?â€￾ I inquired, kind of already knowing the answer.

“Doors open at three, and dinner starts at six.â€￾

“Okay. And you’re sure Justin’s not coming, right?â€￾

“No,â€￾ he sighed. “J is in London, and as much as he wants to, he can’t get home.â€￾


“Chelle, you know you’re going to see him eventually. And you’re gonna have to tell him.â€￾

“Yeah, well I’ve spent the past five months getting over him and I’m just not in a place where I can see him, just so I’ll have to get over him again.â€￾

“I know, I know. It’s just, you can’t run from him forever, babe.â€￾

“I’m not running from him, Joshua. I’m just –“


“I’m staying out of his way.â€￾

“Well, the longer you hide – Oh, I’m sorry – ‘Stay out of his way,’ the harder it’s gonna be.â€￾

“I do know that. But I also know that you’ve got a taping with Carson in ten minutes, so I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. Go get ready, and have fun.â€￾

“You get to cookin’,â€￾ he laughed back. “I’mma be waiting for that Texas-style potato salad of yours.â€￾

I smiled and frowned at the thought of having to get up and cook. “I’ll see you tomorrow, C.â€￾

“Night, Chelle.â€￾

I hung up and sighed, nestling into the softness of my sofa. f*** the potato salad – I’m tired. And thanks to JC, I’m now depressed as well. Okay, yes, I’m pregnant. Yes, it’s Justin’s. That fateful night on the beach mixed with the end of my birth control prescription resulted in the making of a baby. And no, I haven’t told Justin any of that. In fact, I haven’t even talked to him since that heartbreaking day in June when he said that we were better off separated.

I respected his wishes and did my best to stay away from him. It wasn’t easy, considering I work in the building that houses his record label, but I amicably avoided him. If we happened to pass, I’d give him a polite smile of the eyes and be on my way. It was much easier than I thought it would be – until I got the news. After two months, I packed up my sh** and got a place in New York. I couldn’t handle facing Justin. Not yet. So yes, JC is right – I’ve been running. I’ve been running from everyone – Justin, Jourdyn, Sydney… myself. I know someone will catch up to me eventually. But until then, I think I’ll keep it going.


<span style='color:blue'>My tea’s gone cold, I’m wondering why
I got out of bed at all
Morning rain clouds up my window
And I can’t see at all
Even if I could, it would all be gray
Put your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it’s not so bad

Thanksgiving Day – the official beginning of the holiday season. Whoever would’ve thought that I’d be spending it on a plane? Well, okay, more often than not, I’m on a plane, but why’d I have to be alone, you know? This has been a f***ed up year, but I swore to myself that the holidays would make me happy – happier, anyway. Dude, I feel worse.

The plane, crowded with cheerful Thanksgivingers, sailed along the gloomy New York sky, hovering over the Hudson. I studied the window, admiring the perfection of New York’s skyline. Even in the rain, it contained this amazing vibrancy that’s so intriguing. It reminds me of this woman I used to love. Maybe you know her? Her name’s Michelle.

Speaking of her, I hear she moved to the city back in August. I wish I was gonna be in town for more than just today so I could stop by Jive and see how she’s doing, but as fate would have it, I’m back on a plane to London tonight. But it’s probably for the best. She’s probably in Austin for the holiday, anyway.

My random stream of thoughts continued until we reached the runway of JFK. From there, I was shipped off of the aircraft ahead of everyone else, escorted by my bodyguard, Eric, and was planted in the backseat of one of my infamous Yukons.

“J, do you need to pick up anything?â€￾

I stared at the back of Eric’s baldhead, attempting to think of something I could bring. I mean, me as a surprise should be enough, but still. “I guess I could get a bottle of champagne or somethin’, huh?â€￾

“Got it covered,â€￾ Eric replied, holding up a lime green gift bag.

“Well then let’s bounce.â€￾ I was in dire need of some quality time with my family.

We rolled off the tarmac, headed for Manhattan. I studied the wet streets as we passed them, some scattered with people seemingly not celebrating the holiday. That’s New York for you. We arrived on Park Avenue after what seemed like hours. Before getting out of the car, I used the rearview mirror to essentially buy some time and make sure my sh** was in check, adjusted my dark gray coat, and got ready to scoot through the doors to JC’s apartment building.

JC, donning an Armani sweater and that same JC grin that I knew when I was 12, answered his apartment door in high spirits and surprise. “What the hell are you doing here?â€￾ he asked me, pulling me into a hug.

“Happy Thanksgiving,â€￾ I said, laughing. I handed him the bag of unknown champagne and walked into the apartment behind him, gazing at all the new sh** he’d gotten since the last time I was there. Man, C is f***in’ loaded.

“So, what’s up, man? I thought you were on promotion duty in London for the day.â€￾

“Yeah, I thought I was, too, but my appearance on Top of the Pops was postponed, so it gave me a few extra hours to come home.â€￾

“That’s awesome, man. We were gonna miss you like hell.â€￾ He helped me take my coat off and started to disappear into the obscurity of his huge apartment. “Make yourself at home.â€￾

I made casual conversation with his brother, Tyler, and sister, Heather, while C puttered around the kitchen on the phone. Man, he’s changed so much since his second album dropped. The ritzy apartment, the swanky clothes – it’s crazy. I guess it’s inevitable when you grow up, but damn.

“So, how was your flight, J?â€￾

“Um, I dunno. I slept almost the whole way.â€￾ I headed into the kitchen area to watch my best friend act like he knew how to cook. Or wait; did he learn that, too? “How was your show the other night?â€￾

“Crazy. Ridiculous. Insane.â€￾

“Lots of people?â€￾

“Thousands. – It was crazy like *NSYNC crazy.â€￾

“I know what you mean, man. I had a show at Wembley three nights ago. It was pure chaos.â€￾

C turned and smiled at me – he knew exactly how I felt. The rush, the anxiety, the love of adoration. “Who would’ve thought that we’d still be causing mass hysteria after ten years,â€￾ he asked, rhetorically.

It’s amazing how much we’ve grown, life has changed, but the outcome remains the same. “Hey man, we’re just that kinda pimp.â€￾ I held out my hand for the reassuring dap and laughed at my ridiculous statement. But then, it’s actually kinda true, ain’t it? “So who else is coming today?â€￾

He resumed his bustling around the kitchen and cleared his throat. “Well, you know, the other guys and a few people I work with. Nothing excessive.â€￾

“People you work with, huh?â€￾


“So like, people in your band, or say, someone like your publicist?â€￾

“Oh, look at that,â€￾ JC said, hearing the door buzz. “Someone’s at the door.â€￾ He wiped his hands on a dishtowel and disappeared yet again.


Hours later, after the arrival of Joey, Kelly and Bri, and then Chris and Dani, as well as JC’s hot ass girlfriend, Eva, the ten of us sat around the living room, drinking, laughing, entertaining Joey’s daughter and waiting for Lance to arrive so that we could eat.

“So, Justin, what do you want for Christmas?â€￾ Kelly had gone around asking everyone that, as well as what they were thankful for, and it was now my turn.

“Well,â€￾ I said, switching Brianna to my other knee, “I’m not really sure. I just wanna be happy, I guess.â€￾

“Aww,â€￾ everyone cooed.

I was serious. There was finally that highly anticipated knock at the door and we all rose from the living room to head to the dining table now that Lance had arrived.

“Point me to the turkey!â€￾ Joey shouted.

I followed behind him, while JC went to the door. “I’m right behind you, man.â€￾

As I took my seat, the voice of whoever had knocked so softly on the door tickled my ears, and I heard that it was certainly not Lance. I hope that doesn’t mean we still have to wait for him.

Here comes the cold
Break out the winter coats
And find a love to call your own

When I heard it, I thought maybe I was imagining things. But I kept listening, and then, I heard the giggle. “Happy Thanksgiving to you, too,â€￾ the voice said to JC. “Here’s your potato salad.â€￾ Yup, that’s her. That was unmistakably, inimitably, unequivocally Michelle.

Maybe from shock, or perhaps sheer joy, I didn’t turn to look at her when I heard the sound of her heels against JC’s wooden floor. By everyone’s reactions, I knew that she was smiling as she came into the room.

“Hey, everyone! Happy Thanksgiving!â€￾

In unison, everyone returned the salutation with waves and excitement. I turned around just in time to see her removing her baby blue petticoat and handing it to JC. “Happy Thanksgiving, Michelle.â€￾

You – enter you
Your cheeks a shade of pink
And the rest of you in powder blue

Her head snapped in the direction of my voice, sending her curls crashing across her tiny face, hiding the shocked expression that I knew she was harboring. She ran her hand though her hair and took a few seconds to talk to herself before she turned completely around. “Hi, Justin.â€￾

My mouth hit the damn table and then fell to the floor at the sight in front of me. Beneath her baby blue knit sweater was, well… a baby. The tiny tummy that I’d come to know and love had expanded to about the size of a basketball, while the rest of her was just as perfectly petite as always. Yeah, she was definitely pregnant. sh**, I thought I was the one surprising people today. “Um. Hi,â€￾ I stammered. I quickly got up from my seat to hug her and, eventually, offer her my seat.

“Hi,â€￾ she said again, looking down to her black leather boots.

I walked over to her, wanting to hug her without possibly hurting anything. I wrapped my arms around her small frame and inhaled slowly. Her hair still had that strawberry sweetness and her delicate skin against the side of my face also contained that familiar softness. Her touch, though – it was off. It was nervous and contained that air of unease.

We pulled apart and I stared into her hazel eyes, finding that they were screaming panic. It seemed like she was scared. No, absolutely terrified. And so, without saying a single word, I knew. – The baby was mine.

Who knows what will be
But I’ll make you this guarantee
See, no way November will see our goodbye</span>
