Roles Reversed

Karaoke Night and Much More

Later that day, after Tom left, Jude drove over to G Major. She strolled past everyone with a determined look on her face, but no one noticed. The interns were running around furiously doing whatever job demanded of them. She walked up to Darius’s door and raised her hand to knock, but before she could the door swung open and a group of people walked out. Once they were gone Jude peeked her head in and saw Darius up to his elbows in paperwork. He looked up for a split second and said, “Jude, you need something?”

She answered “I can come back if this is a bad time.”

D shook his head and replied “Its fine, this can wait a few minutes.”

He motioned for her to take a seat and she did so. “So, what’s up, you sounded a little worried on the phone.”

Jude closed her eyes and said “He’s back.”

Darius looked a little confused, “What?”

Jude shook her head and said “He’s back D, again.”

Jude answered, emphasizing the word he, “He’s back and he called me, I don’t wanna quit again, I don’t.”

D nodded, he knew exactly what she was talking about. “Jude, calm down.”

Darius said “I am glad you told me early enough this time, good choice. Now tell me what happened.”

Jude nodded and told him about the phone call and how she thought that he might be watching her. D walked over to her and put a reassuring hand on her shoulder and told her, “We’ll get him this time, don’t worry. This time whoever this maniac is won’t be able to hurt you again.”

He thought back to the first time this guy was after her, she got beat up and had to go to the hospital. After all, this man tried to take her voice and his top artist. Sure, she stuck around and produced instead, but it still wasn’t the same around there without the old Jude. Jude nodded and gave D a small smile and as she got up to walked out the door.

“Wait,” Darius called after her causing her to turn around to face him “Jude, I don’t want you staying alone.”

“I know, Sadie’s there though.” Jude answered and Darius shot her a look and said “You know as well as I do she isn’t staying there much longer, since she told me she is buying an apartment of her own.”

Jude nodded “I am aware of that, but…”

Darius threw another look her way and she said “Fine, I’ll get someone to stay over for the time being.” and walked out.

“Go have some fun and take your mind off of it.” he called after her. Darius shook his head; he knew she was scared she just didn’t like to show it. Sometimes she is too stubborn for her own good he thought to himself as he started working on the stack of paperwork in front of him. Meanwhile Jude was wandering around the G Major lobby, looking for Mason, but being unable to find him, she walked up to Sadie’s desk and asked “So, when are you moving?”

Sadie looked up an answered in mock hurt “What, are you trying to get rid of me baby sister?”

Jude rolled her eyes and said “Of course not, just wondering.”

Sadie shrugged “Not sure, I looked at this place yesterday. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.”

Jude nodded, “Okay, I will see you at home, I got stuff to do.”

Sadie smirked and opened her mouth to make some cocky remark and without even turning around Jude said “Get your mind out of the gutter Sades.”

Sadie burst out laughing at how well her sister knew her. Jude shook her head and glanced over her shoulder as she walked out into the parking lot pulling out her cell phone and dialed a number that became committed to memory. Suddenly a caller tune blared through the phone.

'Cause we all just wanna be big rock stars
Livin in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat
And we’ll hang out in the coolest bars
with the VIP's with the movie stars
Every good gold digger's
Gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
With her bleach blonde hair

Hey hey I wanna be a rock star
Hey hey I wanna be a rock star

Then the answering machine kicked in… “Hey you’ve reached me…you know what to do.”

Jude laughed at the message and said “Hey it’s me gimme a call later I have something to ask you. I love the caller tune, by the way…totally suits you and totally not narcissism, after all it is your song.” She said the latter with a slight tone of sarcasm and laughter. She then snapped shut her phone and got into her car and drove home.

A few minutes later, when Jude pulled into the driveway her cell phone started ringing. She looked down at the caller id and Sadie’s picture popped up.

“Hello” Jude said.

“Jude?” Sadie asked.

“Well who else would this be? You called my cell.”

“Yeah, anyways I have the best idea.”

“What?”

“We so should have the guys over and have a party.” Sadie said in an excited voice. Jude thought about it and said “You know what, that sounds like a great idea.”

“Yes!” Sadie exclaimed and Jude heard people hushing her in the background. Jude started laughing and said “Forgot where you were for a second?”

“Yeah…well anyways, I will see you tonight. Wanna pick up a few things for me?”

“Sure” Jude said writing the stuff down and said “See you after you get off work. Bye”

“Bye.”

Jude hung up and sighed as she looked at the list. “This is gonna take a while. Why couldn’t she pick stuff that was all at the same place?” She then grabbed her keys and headed out to the car and drove into town. After she went to the multiple stores to get the supplies Sadie requested and was walking to her car her phone rang again. I am a popular one today. Jude thought as she answered her phone. “Hello”

“Hey, what’s going on?”

“Oh not much, just picking some stuff up.”

“Need some help?”

“Nah, I am already on my way to my car.”

“Yeah, I know, those bags look heavy.”

“What the…how do you know?” Jude said turning around and saw Tom walking towards her with a smirk on his face. She smiled as she shook her head and closed her phone and stopped and waited for him to catch up. “So, where’s the party?”

“What have you heard?” Jude asked sneakily.

“Nothing, you have all the good party supplies.” He answered. “Food, beer, what more do you need?”

“Ask Sadie, I have the rest of the stuff in my car.” Jude said with a sigh

“So there is a party.” He said. Jude rolled her eyes and said sarcastically, “No there is no party, me and Sadie are gonna eat all this ourselves and get very drunk tonight.”

“Well, I might just have to stop by and see how that goes.” He said with a wink as Jude smirked and opened her trunk and set the bags inside. “Wow, you weren’t kidding, How many people are you gonna feed?”

“Not sure, she just said ‘the guys’, but I am thinking like fourish”

“All this food for four people?”

“Well its three right now, will be four if you decide you wanna come, maybe a couple more.”

“Sure, I’ll come, why am I just hearing about this awesome party now?”

“Because Sadie planned it like a half an hour ago and if you would check your messages then you’d know.”

“Why do you think I was calling you?”

“Maybe because you saw I needed help and decided it would be funny to make me answer my phone with my hands full.”

“Well there’s that,” Jude smacked him on the arm in mock irritation “and I didn’t see you until I already started calling you.”

“Ah…nice save.” Tom smirked and said “So what did you want to ask me?”

Jude’s expression changed from one of laughter to one of seriousness in a blink of an eye and that surprised Tom. “Okay…um…if you don’t want to, it’s totally fine, I can ask someone else or something…”

“Jude, what’s going on?” He asked taking a serious tone.

“Well, Sadie is gonna be moving out soon and I was wondering if you would mind staying with me for a little while, I don’t really want to live alone right now.” She said with an unsure tone, talking really fast “like I said it’s okay if you don’t want to…”

Tom put a finger to her lips and said “Shhh.”

Jude stopped and looked up at him. He continued “Of course I’ll come and stay with you.”

Jude smiled and he lightly brushed the hair out of her face and said, “How about we get these back to your house.” Jude nodded and got into her car “What about your car?”

“I got dropped off and was gonna walk home.” He said simply.

“You were gonna walk?! It’s like two miles.” Jude answered.

“I know good walk hunh?” Jude shook her head and started the car and drove back to the house. They both walked into the house with an armful of bags laughing at something Jude said.

“What took you so long?” Sadie said as soon as the door opened.

“Well if you didn’t have me running all over kingdom come for this stuff it wouldn’t have taken me so long, besides what’s wrong with pizza, chips, and beer?” Jude said.

Sadie rolled her eyes and said “You just don’t know how to throw a party.”

“It’s not a dinner party Sades.” Jude said and Sadie turned around to take the bags from Jude and went wide eyed. “OMG” she said grabbing Jude by the arm and pulling her into the kitchen “Why didn’t you tell me he was coming...OMG.” Jude looked at her and said “Sades, stop freaking…besides you are the one that said to invite the guys over.”

“Yeah, I thought you were gonna invite Mason, Spied, Jamie, Patsy…those guys.”

“First off why does it matter and second off, you know those guys aren’t around here anymore…well Mason might be, but Spied is on tour and Jamie, well he’s Jamie and he hasn’t been around much since he got promoted and goes to New York and LA every other weekend for G Major, and Patsy went on tour with SME. So yeah, that’s everybody.” Jude answered.

“It doesn’t matter; I just would’ve liked to know that a rock star is going to be coming to my party.”

“Sades, you live with a rock star…why do you care?”

“Know what…never mind.” Sadie said “And Jude…you’re you…I lived with you since before you were famous so it doesn’t count.”

“Gee thanks. I am gonna go in the other room now.” Jude said walking through the swinging door and was met by Tom’s questioning gaze. “What was that all about?”

“Nothing, it’s just Sadie being Sadie.” Jude answered.

Tom said “I am gonna make a quick stop over at my house and pick up some stuff, so I will be back in a bit.”

“Sounds good.” Jude said. Tom nodded and gave her a kiss on the cheek and walked out the door.


Sadie was still in the kitchen getting stuff ready and she heard the house phone ringing. She sighed and went to wipe off her hands and picked it up.

“Hello”

“Saaaaaaddddddddddiiiiiiieeeee” the voice on the other line sang.

“What do you want Vin?” she answered with a laugh

“Hated first name usage…what did I do to you Harrison?”

“Nothing…I just like to pick on you.” Sadie answered “So…what’s up?”

“Not much, just wanted to say that SME is back in town and ready to party.” Spied said practically screaming the last part.

“How did you hear about the party?” Sadie asked.

“Dude, awesome, there is a party.” Spied said.

He placed his hand over the receiver and yelled “Party at Harrison’s!”

Sadie groaned “Speid!”

“Yeah, don’t tell Dude, we want to surprise her.”

“I won’t.” Sadie said with a smirk. ”Why are you back early?”

“I came back for you sweet thang.” He said in a sexy tone.

“Yeah you wish, I gotta go, party starts at 8.”

“Bye.”

Just as she hung up the phone Jude walked back into the kitchen opened the fridge and leaned in to grab a bottle of pop, “So who was on the phone?”

Sadie shrugged and said “No one important, just someone wanting us to switch long distance companies.”

Jude shook her head and said “We don’t even have long distance.”

Sadie shrugged and said “I know weird right.”

“Whatever.” Jude said as she closed the fridge door and walked into the other room just as the door opened. Mason walked in and said, “Hey Jude.”

Jude shot him a look. He replied holding his hands up in defense “What, I thought we liked that song now, especially after the studio incident.”

“Whatever Mase, I know you are gonna do it anyways so I don’t care. What’s up?”

“Just wanted to stop by because I have to leave tomorrow morning and go back to LA for a little bit and finish up some stuff for the tour, so I have to get going and start packing.”

“Awww, you’re not staying for the party?” Jude asked.

“I didn’t know there was a party, how come I am the last to know these things?” he complained.

“Don’t whine, it’s not cute.” Jude said “and you can still stay for it, it’s at eight.”

“I don’t know…”

“Come on, it’ll be fun, I’ll help you pack.” She said, the latter in a sing song tone.

“In that case…of course I’ll come”

“YAY!” Jude said and gave him a hug “This will be like a going away party!”

“Do you need me to do anything?” Mason asked.

“I don’t know, you could ask Sadie.” Jude answered.

“And BTW, Kwest isn’t able to make it, he is swamped at the studio. Unlike some people I know.” Jude nodded with a smirk.

“Oh, I have something to ask Sadie.” Mason said in an insinuating tone. Jude went wide eyed and groaned “Mason DON’T!”

It was too late, Mason was already over by the kitchen door saying “Oh Sadie.”

Jude put her hand on her forehead and shook her head. Just then the door opened and Tom walked in. “Hey girl.”

He said setting his bag next to the door.

“Hi, I missed you.” Jude said giving him a hug.

“I was only gone for like a half hour.” Jude smiled and said “I know, but that is too long, especially with Sadie being in party mode and beware of a sudden outburst, Mason just walked in there.”

Tom nodded and said “What don’t they get along?”

“No, they get along just fine. He just went in there to ask her about the other night.” Jude answered. As if right on cue Sadie screamed “JUDE!”

Jude started laughing and said “Told you so” grabbing him by the hand and said “Come on, let’s get out of here before it gets crazy” leading him out to the backyard where most of the stuff was set up.

Jude, Tommy, Sadie and Mason were sitting in the backyard laughing about the topics they were discussing. Jude was sitting on the picnic table with her feet on the bench, Tom was sitting next to her in a chair, and Sadie and Mason were both standing.

Out of the corner of her eye Sadie saw the gate open and saw Spied, Wally, and Kyle sneak in. She nudged Mason and motioned with her eyes towards them and he nodded slightly in acknowledgement. They were the only two to see the boys come in since everyone else’s backs were towards them. Suddenly Jude felt someone grab her around the waist from behind causing her to try to turn around, but whoever was holding on to her wouldn’t let her.

“Ok, whoever is doing this better let me go or they are gonna get it.” Jude said threatening. Everyone looked over at her and said nothing. Tom looked from Jude to Mason who put one finger up to signal him to stay quiet and see what happened and by the look on his face, this should be amusing.

“Dude, I’m hurt, is that any way to talk to an old friend?”

Jude smiled and whirled around and screamed “Oh my God, Spied!” and jumped into his arms and gave him a hug “Why are you back so soon and why didn’t you tell me you were coming?”

“I wanted to surprise you.” He answered simply, “And I came back for my lover.”

“Well it worked.” she said letting go, rolling her eyes at the last part and Sadie yelled, “In your dreams Ninja Turtles boy.”

Jude laughed as Spied feigned hurt and said, “Where’s Patsy, didn’t she go with you guys?”

“She said she would be come around later, something about going to get something.”

“Okay, well guys help yourselves to whatever is here. It has to be better than tour bus food.” Jude said and Wally and Kyle replied

“Nothing wrong with the tour bus food, meals from a bag are good.”

Sadie chimed in with “Yeah and full of empty calories.”

The boys shrugged and grabbed some food and sat down in the grass next to the group with Spied next to Sadie and Kyle and Wally between Jude and Mason.

“Hey guys this is Tommy, Tommy this is Spied, Wally and Kyle. “ Jude said pointing to each of the guys as she introduced them. Tom waved and the Spied said “Dude, you forgot the best part, we are the best rock group of all time.”

Jude laughed and said “Whatever Spied, you know it was better when I was there.”

Spied smiled sneakily and said “Sure Dude, especially on tour bus Betty, she’s not the same without you and neither is tour.”

Jude smirked and said “Remember, what happens on tour STAYS on tour. So don’t even go there.”

“That sounds interesting…what happened on tour...hmmm Jude?” Mason asked knowingly.

“NOTHING happened on tour.” Jude said firmly and everyone except Tommy started laughing.

He looked at her with a small grin and said “You know I think I wanna hear this story.”

Jude shook her head “There is nothing to tell, guys come on, knock it off” she said while everyone continued laughing. “Come on is this like bag on Jude day? Come on someone help me out.”

“Ok, Ok, Ok…how about this then…what is the best pick up line someone used on you or you have used yourself?” Sadie said holding her beer and taking a pull off it.

“I’ll go first.” Mason said, “How about the ever so original ‘If I could rearrange the alphabet I would put U and I together’.”

Everyone groaned “That is horrible, who says that anymore?” one of the group members yelled out and Mason threw his hands up defensively “It was used on me, last night at the bar, I didn’t say it.”

There were a few replies of “Yeah right” and “Sure Mase.” He shook his head.

“I’ve got one.” Tommy said once the laughter died down and they looked at him “My boys bet me I couldn’t start a conversation with the prettiest girl in the room, how about you let me buy you a drink so I can prove em wrong.”

Everyone laughed and Jude said, “That one is actually not that bad, did it work?”

Tom shrugged and smiled, “Yeah."

Jude looked at him skeptically and said “I really don’t want to know what happened with that.”

He put his arm around her waist and pulled her on to his lap saying “Nothing to worry about babe.”

Jude laughed under her breath.

“Kay guys how about this one,” Wally said “If I had a nickel for every beautiful girl I see I would have five cents.”

Kyle high-fived him and said “I remember that night…awesome.” The rest of the group laughed and Spied said “Dudes, don’t go into detail for our sakes.”

The two guys shrugged. “Guys, I have the best one,” Sadie said, imitating the guys voice she continued “Hey baby, you be my Dairy Queen, I’ll be your Burger King. You treat me right and I’ll do it your way.”

The grouped erupted in a roar of laughter and Jude said “Oh my, Sadie who said that to you?”

Sadie put her arm around Spied’s shoulder and said, “Why this guy did” as she put her head on his shoulder.

“Yeah, and it earned me a slap across the face” he laughed. “Man, I can still feel it.” He continued, rubbing his cheek. Jude laughed even harder.

“My turn, okay,” she said, controlling her laughter “What has 142 teeth and holds back Incredible Hulk?”

Sadie burst out laughing; she’d been there that night. “My zipper.” Jude finished and that got the boys of SME laughing and an eye roll from Tommy.

“Wow, that guy was a little egotistical.” Mason said “What did you do?” Jude smiled and said “Well I did what any self respecting girl would do…I told him he had to buy me dinner first and then I dumped my rum and Coke on the rocks down the front of his pants.” A roar of laughter erupted from the group.

“Remind me to never try cheesy pick up lines on you.” A voice said from behind the group. Everyone turned to see Jamie walk up with his arm around Patsy. “Oh Jamie, you learned that years ago.” Jamie nodded and said “Yep, never gonna forget either. Took like two weeks to get the sand out of my hair.” Jude turned to Patsy and said, “Hey Patsy.”

“Hey, Blondie.” Patsy said “You’re not blonde anymore.”

“Nope.”

“Cool, I like it better this way.” Jude nodded in thanks and said “Guys, this is Tommy.” leaning back into him.

“Sup.” Patsy said clapping a hand on his back and passed by them and went over to the table and grabbed two beers. “One for each hand.” she said when Jamie looked at her curiously.

A few minutes later Spied, Kyle and Wally came up with an idea. They ran out to Spied’s car and grabbed some stuff. While they were gone, Sadie wondered out loud “What do you think those guys are up to now?”

“I don’t know.” Jude said “Did anyone do anything to them so they feel the need to retaliate?” There were a few “Nope” and a “Not yet anyways.”

“Retaliate?” Tom asked.

“Yeah, there is this series of on going pranks. Retaliate.” Jude answered, “You should be ok though, you didn’t do anything…yet.”

“I see.”

“Hey guys” they yell concurrently walking back into the yard, “Guess what time it is….Karaoke Night.” Sadie, who had a few drinks, cheered “I love karaoke night!”

“That’s what we’re talking about, yeah!” Spied cheered and set up the mic, guitar and radio. “Now the first lady up is…..Jude Harrison.”

“Guys...” Jude whined.

“Don’t whine Jude, it’s not cute.” Mason said laughing.

“Yeah Dude.” Kyle said pulling her up and dragging her over to the mic stand.

“Ok Jude, what are singing for us?” Spied said in his announcer voice.

Jude rolled her eyes playfully and said “I am singing an old favorite of mine by Faith Hill, originally by Janis Joplin. This goes out to Sades, who loves this song.”

Spied nodded and hit the button for the karaoke music to start. Once the slow sound of the steel guitar came through the speakers Sadie stood up and said “I love this song!” Jude laughed and started to sing.

Didn't I make you feel,

Like you were the only man

Didn’t I give you everything that a woman possibly can

Each time I tell myself that I think I've had enough

What I'm gonna show you baby is that a woman can be tough

So come on, come on, come on

And take it

Take another little piece of my heart now baby

Take another little piece of my heart I know you will

Break it

Break another little bit of my heart now baby

You know you got it if it makes you feel good, so good

You're out on the streets lookin' good

Baby deep down in your heart

You know that it ain't right

No you never hear me cryin

You know I cry all the time

Each time I tell myself that I can't stand the pain

But when you hold me in your arms and I start singing once again

So come on, come on, come on,

And take it

Take another little piece of my heart now baby

Take another little piece of my heart I know you will

Break it

Break another little bit of my heart now baby

You know you got it if it makes you feel good, so good

(Guitar solo)

Each time I tell myself that I can’t stand the pain

You hold me in your arms and I start singing once again

So come on, come on, come on,

And take it

Take another little piece of my heart now baby

Won’t you just take it

Take another little piece of my heart I know you will

And you will break it

Break another little bit of my heart now baby

You know you got it if it makes you feel good, oh so good

Take another little piece of my heart now baby

Won’t you just take it

Take another little piece of my heart I know you will

And you will break it

Break another little bit of my heart now baby

Take another little piece of my heart, my heart, my heart, my heart, my heart

Take another little piece of my heart now baby

Won’t you just break it

Break another little piece of my heart, my heart, my heart

You can not break

When she softly said the last line, everyone cheered and clapped. “Now as karaoke night rules state, I get to pick the next person” Jude said with a gleam in her eye and said “Okay Sades, your up”

“Noooooooo.” Spied, Kyle, and Wally said at once “Last time she did we needed to buy a new mic.”

Jude laughed and turned to Sadie, who was now right beside her, and said “Show em what you got.”

Sadie nodded and said “Well, this goes out to all you guys who don’t think I can sing.”

“That’s because you can’t.” one of the boys yelled and Sadie rolled her eyes and said “This is called Goodbye.” Once the music started she grabbed on to the mic and sang

Do do do,
do do do,
do do do do dono

Here’s a story about a girl I used to know
She had a boyfriend he said he had to go
He said he’s sorry
But he’s got to take a break
Her heart was broken but she said she would wait

Tick tock
Three months gone by
Knock knock
There’s a tear in his eye
What what
Moving back to stay
There’s just one that I got to say

Arrivederci sayonara au revoir bonsoir
How many ways can I say goodbye goodbye goodbye
Goodbye so long goodbye

Do do do do do do do whoa whoa whoa
While you were playing I was going back to school unlearning
All that you taught me to be
Whose the asshole standing at my door
Begging lying broken bleeding asking for more

Mason turned to Jude and said “What did you do, she’s good.”

Jude smirked and said “A little practice works wonders.” Mason nodded.

Tick tock
Three months gone by

“Wow, Sadie, you can sing….its a MIRACLE.” Spied yelled after she was done “Wanna join SME…you can replace Dude.” Jude smacked him in the arm and said “Hey, I’m right here. And no one can replace me.”

“You’re right; no one can replace you, except Sadie.” He said jokingly.

“Whatever Vincent.” Jude said as she went back over to Tommy and sat down on his lap.

“Low blow Harrison.”

“You so deserve it.”

Sadie, who was still up by the mic called out “I think it’s time for someone to come up here.” She looked over at Jude and communicated with her eyes and Jude smirked and nodded. “OK, Tommy, get your butt up here.”

“What?”

“You heard me, get up here.” Sadie said. Tom shrugged and walked up next to Sadie.

“And the rules of karaoke night clearly state that I get to pick the song for the new guy so you are gonna be singing….” she flipped through the pages of the song book and pointed one out.

“Why that song?” he said to her

“Because I said so.” Sadie laughed and went over and sat next to Mason and Jamie.

“Ok, here it goes”

Oh oh oh oh oh

Yeah

You have so many relationships in this life

Only one or two will last

You go through all the pain and strife

Then you turn your back and they're gone so fast

Oh yeah

And they're gone so fast, yeah

Oh

So hold on the ones who really care

In the end they'll be the only ones there

And when you get old and start losing your hair

Tell me who will still care

Can you tell me who will still care?

Oh care

“OMG Sadie…why are you torturing him, what did he do to you?” Jamie said.

“Hell, why are you torturing us?” Patsy said shaking her head.

Sadie laughed “Because it is so much fun.”

Mason shakes his head and said “Well he’s taking it pretty well.”

Jude shrugged and said “Yeah, better than you did anyways.”

Mason glanced over at her and said “Well, I don’t do cheesy pop songs.”

Jude retorted with “Neither does he, but he isn’t yelling.”
