Chapter 21

It was Friday night and everyone was at the coffee shop to hear Jessica sing. Nick brought his parents to the shop and found them seats with Brian. Alex, Ashley, Melanie, and Kyle came in.

“Mom, Dad, these two ladies are Jessica’s best friends, Ashley and Melanie, you know Alex, he and Ashley are together, and this is Kyle, Melanie’s husband, guys this is my mom, Bonnie, and my father, James,” Nick said.

“Nice to meet you,” Ashley said shaking their hands. Melanie and Kyle shook their hands.

“Nick said that Jessica is quite the singer,” Bonnie said.

“And songwriter too, Carrie Underwood has one of Jessica’s songs,” Ashley said.

“Really, which song?” Bonnie asked.

“The song is called Just a Dream,” Melanie said.

“That’s Jessica’s song, I love that song, it makes me tear up,” Bonnie said.

“Mom, Jessica wrote that song from her heart, because what happened in the song, happened to Jessica,” Nick said.

“What,” Bonnie said.

“She can tell you later on, it would be better coming from her,” Nick said. Bonnie nodded. They listened to the other singers before it was Jessica’s turn. She smiled at them and blew a kiss at Nick.

“I have been asked to sing a couple of songs tonight, I hope you like them,” Jessica said.

Lying here with you
Listening to the rain
Smiling just to see the smile upon your face
These are the moments I thank God that I’m alive
These are the moments I’ll remember all my life
I’ve found all I’ve waited for
And I could not ask for more

Looking in your eyes
Seeing all I need
Everything you are is everything in me
These are the moments
I know heaven must exist
These are the moments
I know all I need is this
I’ve found all I’ve waited for, yeah
And I could not ask for more

I could not ask for more than this time together
I could not ask for more than this time with you
And every prayer has been answered
Every dream I’ve had’s come true
Yeah, right here in this moment
Is right where I’m meant to be
Here with you here with me
Yeah

These are the moments I thank God that I’m alive
These are the moments I’ll remember all my life
I’ve found all I’ve waited for
And I could not ask for more

I could not ask for more than this time together
I could not ask for more than this time with you
And every prayer has been answered
Every dream I’ve had’s come true
Yeah, right here in this moment
Is right where I’m meant to be
Oh, here with you here with me
No, I could not ask for more
Than this love you gave me
Cause it’s all I’ve waited for
And I could not ask for more
No, yeah
No, I could not ask for more

(Song: I Could Not Ask For More by Sara Evans)

Everyone stood up and cheered and clapped. Nick grinned and looked at his mom and dad. They were smiling and cheered and clapping. Jessica took a drink and got ready for her next song.

Just the thought of you around,
gets my head spinning... in circles.
Just the way you say my name,
gets my heart turning... in circles.

You got me spinning like a wheel,
oh how you make me feel.
It’s more than gold on my finger,
it’s six feet down and forever.
’Cause where I am,
is where you begin.
You picked up the pieces,
and put me together.
You’re the only part of me unbroken,
and I’m going... in circles.

Every crooked little lie,
bended, connected... circles.
Every star up in the sky,
every hello and goodbye,
every moment by your side,
is the meaning of my life

You got me spinning like a wheel,
oh how you make me feel.
It’s more than gold on my finger,
it’s six feet down and forever.
’Cause where I am,
is where you begin.
You picked up the pieces,
and put me together.
You’re the only part of me unbroken,
and I’m going... in circles.
In circles

Just the thought of you around,
gets my head spinning... in circles.
Just the way you say my name,
gets my heart turning, turning, turning
around and ’round again.

You got me spinning like a wheel,
oh how you make me feel.
It’s more than gold on my finger,
it’s six feet down and forever.
’Cause where I am,
is where you begin.
You picked up the pieces,
and put me together.
You’re the only part of me unbroken,
and I’m going... in circles.
In circles.

Just the thought of you around,
gets my head spinning... in circles

(Song: Circles by Jana Kramer)

Once again everyone stood up and clapped and cheered. She waved to everyone and got offstage and came over to them. Nick took her in his arms and hugged her tight.

“You were amazing, baby,” Nick said.

“Thank you, babe,” Jessica said. Bonnie came up to them and she hugged Jessica after Nick moved back.

“You are an amazing singer, Jessica,” Bonnie said.

“Thank you, Bonnie,” Jessica said.

“Now, Ashley and Nick told me that Carrie Underwood has one of your songs that you wrote, Just a Dream, he told me you would tell me the story behind that song,” Bonnie said. She nodded and they sat down. Nick sat beside her knowing she would get upset.

“The song is based on me and my late husband, his name was Jacob, he enlisted after high school, we got married before he shipped out, he was my high school sweetheart, we were each other’s first time, first everything, we kept in contact through email and phone, for three years, he was gone off and on, three weeks before he was set to come home for good, he was killed by a roadside bomb, they sent two military officers to tell me he was killed, I was so devastated that I could barely function after that, I spent most of time in bed, barely ate, only time I left the house was the funeral, a year later, I slowly came out of my shell and found a job and began living again,” Jessica said. Bonnie hugged her.

“I’m so sorry you had to go through that, I know it hadn’t to have been easy after you lost him,” Bonnie said.

“No it wasn’t, he will always be in my heart, but I have to move on sometime, now Nick has my heart,” Jessica said. He grabbed her hand and kissed it.

“And I won’t break it,” Nick said.

That night, they all went home. Nick and Jessica locked up the house and went upstairs and showered together and got into bed and after making love, they went to sleep.
