Chapter 12

Three weeks later, Jessica and Nick grew closer as a couple. She and Brian were getting along well as friends and she met Rachel and she and the girls put an effort in getting along with her by inviting her to lunch sometimes and she has become a friend to them as well so now they can quadruple date when possible. Jessica wrote a new song and smiled and took it to her music producer friend who helped her with the music and the tone of the song. Soon it was Friday night, Ashley, Alex, Kyle, and Melanie were sitting there in the coffee shop while Jessica sat with the other singers. Nick came in with Brian and Rachel.

“So Jessica sings?” Rachel asked.

“Yeah, she’s sung two times already, the shop has open mic nights every Friday, we have videos of her singing, we’ll play them later,” Brian said. They watched the other singers. Then it was Jessica’s turn and she smiled and looked at Nick.

“This song is dedicated to a special guy in my life,” Jessica said. Nick smiled. Jessica sang the song.

It’s amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain
What I hear when you don’t say a thing

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes sayin’ you’ll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

All day long I can hear people talking out loud
But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
Old Mr. Webster could never define
What’s being said between your heart and mine

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes sayin’ you’ll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes sayin’ you’ll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

Song: When You Say Nothing At All by Alison Krauss

Jessica smiled and everyone stood up and clapped. She came down offstage and went into Nick’s arms.

“That was amazing,” Nick said.

“That song was for you,” Jessica said. The owner of the coffee shop came up to Jessica and whispered something to her and she looked at him and nodded.

“Baby?” Nick asked.

“One of the singers got sick and they need the slot filled, looks like I’m singing another song,” Jessica said.

“Go for it, baby,” Nick said.

“This song is for you as well,” Jessica said kissing him before going back up onstage and sang another song.

I can feel the magic floating in the air
Being with you gets me that way
I watch the sunlight dance across your face and I’ve
Never been this swept away

All my thoughts just seem to settle on the breeze
When I’m lying wrapped up in your arms
The whole world just fades away
The only thing I hear
Is the beating of your heart

’Cause I can feel you breathe
It’s washing over me
Suddenly I’m melting into you
There’s nothing left to prove
Baby all we need is just to be
Caught up in the touch
The slow and steady rush
Baby, isn’t that the way that love’s supposed to be
I can feel you breathe
Just breathe

In a way I know my heart is waking up
As all the walls come tumbling down
I’m closer than I’ve ever felt before
And I know
And you know
There’s no need for words right now

’Cause I can feel you breathe
It’s washing over me
Suddenly I’m melting into you
There’s nothing left to prove
Baby all we need is just to be
Caught up in the touch
The slow and steady rush
Baby, isn’t that the way that love’s supposed to be
I can feel you breathe
Just breathe

Caught up in the touch
The slow and steady rush
Baby, isn’t that the way that love’s supposed to be
I can feel you breathe
Just breathe

I can feel the magic floating in the air
Being with you gets me that way

Song: Breathe by Faith Hill

Everyone once again stood up and clapped and cheered. She got offstage and walked over to her friends and Nick kissed her and hugged her.

“Jessica, Kyle and I have started planning the wedding, for our first dance, we want you to sing the song, we have it picked already,” Melanie said.

“What song?” Jessica asked.

“From This Moment On by Shania Twain,” Melanie said.

“I love that song,” Jessica said.

“I know, we do too, we want it as our first dance and we want you singing it,” Melanie said.

“You got it!” Jessica said hugging them. They all left and went home. Nick walked her to the door.

“Goodnight baby,” Nick said kissing her softly.

“Goodnight,” Jessica said. She hugged him and kissed him and went inside and closed the door. She went upstairs and showered and went to bed.
