Chapter 24

On Friday night, Jessica sat with the other singers. Nick came in with his parents and sat down. Ashley, Alex, Melanie, and Kyle came in and sat with Nick. Brian came in with his date and sat down. He introduced everyone to her. Her name was Tracy. Jake came in and Nick introduced him to everyone and he sat down. They listened to everyone and soon it was Jessica’s turn. She got up and smiled and winked at Nick. He smiled and she sang the song and he knew it was about him.

Don’t need no copy of Vogue magazine
Don’t need to dress like no beauty queen
High heels or sneakers he don’t give a damn
My baby loves me just the way that I am
My baby loves me just the way that I am

He never tells me I’m not good enough
Just give me unconditional love
He loves me tender and he loves me mad
He loves me silly and he loves me sad

He thinks I’m pretty, he thinks I’m smart
He likes my nerve and he loves my heart
He’s always sayin’ he’s my biggest fan
My baby loves me just the way that I am
My baby loves me just the way that I am

When there’s dark clouds in my eyes
He just sits back and lets ’em roll on by
I come in like a lion and go out like a lamb
My baby loves me just the way that I am
My baby loves me just the way that I am

He thinks I’m pretty, he thinks I’m smart
He likes my nerve and he loves my heart
He’s always sayin’ he’s my biggest fan
My baby loves me just the way that I am
He thinks I’m pretty, he thinks I’m smart
He likes my nerve and he loves my heart
Don’t see no reason to change my plan
My baby loves me just the way that I am
My baby loves me just the way that I am

(Song: My Baby Loves Me by Martina McBride)

Everyone stood up and cheered and clapped. Jessica waved to everyone and got offstage and went to Nick and hugged him. He buried his face in her neck.

“I love you,” Nick said.

“I love you,” Jessica said. He kissed her and held her to him as James and Bonnie came and hugged them.

“Jess, I have a surprise for you, baby,” Nick said.

“What is it?” Jessica asked.

“I signed up to sing a song to you,” Nick said.

“Really?” Jessica said.

“Yeah, but Brian’s a better singer so he’s singing it for me,” Nick said. She saw Brian onstage.

“Hello everyone, this song is dedicated to Jessica Parker from her boyfriend, Nick Lewis, I’m singing it but the words are from him, it’s all him, Jess,” Brian said. He started singing.

Forever can never be long enough for me
To feel like I’ve had long enough with you
Forget the world now, we won’t let them see
But there’s one thing left to do

Now that the weight has lifted
Love has surely shifted my way

Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say “Hello” in this cafe
Say you will
Mm-hmm
Say you will
Mm-hmm

Together can never be close enough for me
To feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I’ll wear out the words “I love you”
And you’re beautiful

Now that the wait is over
And love has finally shown her my way

Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say “Hello” in this cafe
Say you will
Mm-hmm
Say you will
Mm-hmm

Promise me
You’ll always be
Happy by my side
I promise to
Sing to you
When all the music dies

And marry me
Today and everyday
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say “Hello” in this cafe
Say you will
Mm-hmm
Say you will
Mm-hmm

Marry me
Mm-hmm

(Song: Marry Me by Train)

She covered her mouth as she listened to the song with tears in her eyes and after Brian was done, she looked and saw Nick in front of her down on one knee holding up a small ring box with a ring inside it smiling at her.

“Jessica, I love you with everything in me and I want to spend the rest of my life with you, I know we haven’t been together that long but it feels like forever to me, I can’t imagine my life without you, will you marry me?” Nick asked.
