"You did this for me?" I asked in disbelief.
"You said you were supposed to look at colleges this summer and summer isn't over yet. And if college is still what you want to do, then I want you to have your options open and all."
"Nick, this is so sweet."
"And I've always thought about going to college one day. Maybe we could go together."
I laughed a little. "I'd love that, but you might have to to give up performing for a little while to do that."
"Well, why don't we just go to the tour and just see what happens from there?"
"Sounds good. And Nick?" I said turning back to him after we had both turned to get out.
He looked over his shoulder without turning back completely. "Yeah?"
I looked around to see if anyone was watching. I just saw Big Rob, who had to come with us, standing outside the car, looking around a little. So I put my hand on Nick's shoulder, getting him to turn back towards me a little. "Thank you. For this. For everything." I reached over and kissed him.
He did a quick glance around too and then he turned completely to me, pulled me close to him, placed a hand on the side of my face and kissed me again, a little longer this time. Then he smiled at me and said, "Thank you too."
And so Nick and I visited schools in almost every place we went. And with his encouraging I looked into schools in other places too, trying to find the right place. I still didn't know exactly what I was going to do, but I figured I could always take a gap year after high school if I needed. All that mattered was I was moving in the right direction... because of Nick.
Jillian joined us for the last part of the tour since she was still on summer vacation and she and Joe had been talking non stop. By the end of the tour they were dating. Kevin and Dani were going strong and on the day on the day of the last show, he proposed. Nick and I only seemed to get closer the longer we were together. All 3 Jonas boys started the tour single, and by the end they were all in love and happy. And I started the tour surrounded by people but essentially alone. I was depressed, hurting myself, in a tragic relationship, and struggling with my dad. By the end, I was happy and hopeful. I hadn't hurt myself in months, I had an amazing boyfriend, I had reconnected with my cousin Jillian, I gained a whole new family in the Jonases, and I had never felt closer to my dad. As cheesy as it sounds, I finished the tour an entirely different person.
We were all of course dealing with what would happen now. The guys were going to film Camp Rock 2 for a couple months. Jillian was going back to LA to school a new management contract with Jonas Group. My dad and I were going back to Philly temporarily, but we were mostly planning to move to LA where my dad had more access to work and I would attend Jillian's school. Of course, I'd miss Mikyala but we knew we had done long-distance friendship for a summer, we could keep it up. Everyone, especially me, just believed going back to the environment I had been in before would be too difficult for me and seeing people, especially Tyler, would be too damaging. There was talk that Jillian and I could pop into Toronto at some point to visit the set and maybe even be extras, but we knew that our relationships would mainly be long-distance for awhile. It was hard to think about it, but she had faith in her and Joe and I had faith in me and Nick. And for now, we were just enjoying moments as the North American tour wrapped up. In November I'd go to Europe for the rest of the tour with the Jonases and my dad, so I had that to look forward to.
I had learned on this tour that I could have a future that I could be excited about and that life could be enjoyable. It was like I had been waiting around for things to either end or start over, and I learned now that I had to make changed, I had to begin again if I wanted anything to change, and that is exactly what the Jonases helped me do. That is exactly what I did. I stopped waiting around and started doing. It sounds stupid, but it's true. And everything was only beginning.
Cheesy ending i know, but after so many chapters i couldn't not have a happy ending, right? lol.
