Jason paced the studio for what seemed like hours. He couldn’t deal with this anymore. Checking his phone for the fifth time, he could finally breathe easy. Erin had finally texted him back. It read: hanging out w/ the girls, call me tonite? (:
Jason grinned, and replied; knowing that Erin still cared meant a lot. He stuffed his phone into his pocket, and joined the rest of the boys for rehearsal.
“Where’s Mikey?” T-Money questioned.
“He’s sick; he said he would try his best to come, but his mom doesn’t want us to catch whatever he’s got.” Madison lied.
Thinking nothing of it, the boys got started with practice. Each of them were kind of motivated to practice because they had a competition in a couple of weeks. Since preforming on ABDC, they had been becoming very popular.
Down by the pier, an eager Erin Anderson, was spending time with her favorite ICONic Boy, Mikey. This was their third unofficial date. This had been Mikey’s idea all along. He and Erin were a ‘perfect’ match, in his eyes.
Erin still had a huge part of her heart dedicated to Jason, but at the same time she did love spending time with Mikey. Erin taught herself to stop caring about Jason a while ago. She still did somewhat love him, but Mikey was what she wanted right now.
Mikey stretched his arms around Erin’s waist, and softly kissed her lips. Erin giggled, and kissed him back.
“Hey babe, how’d you get here? I thought you guys had practice for that competition?” Erin asked, studying him.
“I told them I was sick. Jason doesn’t know, Madison is covering for me, but i’ve got to get home in a couple of hours.” Mikey smiled, kissing her forehead.
Erin smirked, and grasped his hand. They began walking down the pier talking. As they walked past the hustle and bustle of the people, they continued a conversation.
“So, you’re all mine?” Mikey’s eyes widened.
“Yeah, I dumped Jason a while ago. I’m all yours Fusco.” She kissed Mikey, slipping in a tiny bit of tongue.
“Whoa there dancer girl, if you want tongue I’ll give it to you, trust me.” Mikey raised an eyebrow.
Erin giggled, and continued walking with Mikey.
Back at ICON, rehearsal was over, and the boys were hanging out. Since there was nothing to do, the boys decided to tease Jason about his relationship with Erin.
They all sat on the studio floor, in silence for a minute until Madison brought up a question.
“So Jason, have you seen Erin’s new picture on Instagram?” Madison scoffed.
Jason grew a bit nervous.
“No, what’s wrong with it?” Jason quickly unlocked his phone.
Jason was rapidly flicking through apps, until he opened Instagram. Everything was fine, he saw a few new pictures, and continued scrolling.
Jason continued scrolling until he saw a picture from Erin. He stopped and stared at it for a long while. The boys gathered around him in shock, the picture took them all by surprise.
Mikey was kissing Erin, and their hands were clasped together. The caption read: “You’re the first and last thing I think about everyday and every other thought in between. I miss you when we’re apart, and when we’re together. I just want to be with you. Love ya babe! (: Forever and always Mrs. Fusco. <3”
All the boys could tell Jason was beyond pissed. He dropped his phone, crossed his arms, and slowly walked out of the studio. He couldn’t really contain any feelings. He was just hopelessly confused.
Jason looked around aimlessly. He just wanted to be alone. He continued wandering through the dance complex. Letting his tear flow freely, Jason pushed his back against a nearby wall, and stood for a moment.
How could she do this to me? he thought. I thought she loved me.
“I-I just want some space okay Jason?” He remembered those words exactly. They tore a whole in his heart.
This was something he could never forgive. He couldn’t deal with himself. He felt tired, exhausted from crying, and angry.
All he wanted to do was confront Mikey, and talk to the girl he loved.
