“Lovely to have you back.” A deep voice echoed through the room.
I sucked in a breath and turned toward where the voice came from.
“How was the trip?” Alfredo said walking toward me with a smirk on his face.
“Damnit Fredo you scared the shit out of us!” I yelled as a smile spread across his face.
“Sorry, thought id come over and let you guys know whats been going on.”
“Well you could do it in a less creepy way.” Justin said as he came over toward the couches.
“Sorry about that,” Fredo said as we all took a seat in the living room.
“So did they figure out who broke in and stole the key?” Justin asked taking Ella from me.
“Yeah, about that…” Fredo trailed off,
My heart started to speed up as I anticipated the worst,
“Ya see, I thought you heard me ask if I could use the theater room while you were gone on vacation. That get together you had a few weeks ago, I asked about it then & you showed me where the spare key was and gave it too me.”
“I did?” Justin said squinting his eyes trying to remember.
“Yeah, so when you guys were gone I sent over my nephew to check how many seats there were & when he opened the door the alarm went off and he panicked and bolted.”
“Thank goodness it wasn’t anything serious,” I sighed leaning into the side of Justin & playing with the little hair Ella had on her head.
“I didn’t know it caused such a big scene because he didn’t tell me the alarm went off, so when I came over earlier today and the key didn’t work I called Scooter and he explained what happened to me. Then he came over with the new key and let me in and said that you guys were on his way to pick up the keys so I decided to be creepy and stay till you got back.” He laughed reclining back on the sofa.
“You are such a creep bro,” Justin laughed before handing Ella over to Fredo so he could play with her.
“I’d rather have you be a creep than have a real creep breaking into my house,” I said smiling at Fredo as I headed into the kitchen to get something to drink.
“Next time just call us and remind us and we wouldn’t have to worry our entire vacation about whether or not our house is safe to come home too.”
“You got it,” Fredo agreed,
“As long as I can come over and play with this cutie I wont break into your house anymore.” he coed at Ella who cracked a smile as we all laughed.
Pushed to the Side
Note: IPY and Much more tied in votes so I wrote this one shot instead!
I was as proud as I could be as I watched Justin up on the stage, a smile never wavering from my face as his voice filled the venue. I slipped out of the crowd and headed backstage as Justin was half way done with the last song. I smiled to myself as I thought of him coming off stage sweaty and tired wrapping his arms around me as I kissed him congratulations for the amazing show he put on again tonight. As I was coming around to where Justin usually comes off Scooter grabbed my arm gently,
“Hey Selena can we talk?”
I was slightly confused but gave him my attention.
“What’s up?” I smiled.
“You’re going to the Toronto show correct?”
“Well they are going to be filming that show for the concert DVD that’s coming out next year. I just wanna ask you too try and stay hidden and at the end of the concert a bunch of team are going to go out with signs on stage, I think it would be better if you didn’t go out with everyone. I don’t want to sound like an asshole but there is less drama and it just works out better if you aren’t seen in it. Understand?” Scooter smiled.
I pushed my initial emotions away and smile,
“Oh yeah sure understandable.”
Scooter squeezed my arm and headed off down the hall.
I was hurt, confused and mad all at the same time. As I stood there trying to get my emotions figured out I heard Justin end the song & come back stage. I turned to see his bright smile and as I pictured it before I put on a smile and kissed him congratulations as he hugged his sweaty body to mine, unaware of my conversation with Scooter.
Selena had been quiet since we headed to Toronto and because of our recent hiccup I knew I needed to communicate more with her to prevent what happened before.
I plopped down next to her on the tour bus couch slinging my arm over her shoulder and leaning my lips close to her ear.
“What’s wrong babe?” I asked before pressing a light kiss to the side of her head.
“Tired,” she smiled weakly at me.
“Why don’t you sleep then?” I asked pulling her legs up onto my lap.
“I don’t want to go to sleep till you do, I want to spend as much time with you as I can.”
I smiled at her leaning forward and pressing a light kiss to her lips,
“We can go to bed now if you want,” I whispered letting my hand run down her thigh.
Selena pulling me forward pressing her lips to mine again,
“That sounds good,”
I was running around backstage getting ready for the show with a camera following me everywhere. I was doing a few dance moves in the hall to give the camera a little show when I looked up and saw Selena walking towards me with Allison.
“Babe remember this?” I yelled as I did a small dance move she had down a long time ago in one of her movies.
She smiled and shook her head but as the camera crew turned to get her and Allison she quickly stepped into the open room next to them. I scrunched my eyebrows, told the camera guys to stay and I jogged to the room she had slipped into.
“Sel, what are you doing?”
“uh nothing,” She smiled at me,
“Why did you come in here?” I looked around the room full of folding chairs and tables.
“Thought I saw something, it was nothing though.”
She walked over kissing me on the cheek,
“I’m going to go find Fredo, I’ll see you after the show.”
I grabbed her hand before she could slip out the door and rubbed my thumb across the top of her hand,
“I love you.” I smiled, I thought things were much better between us than it was a few weeks ago but she seemed to still be distant these last couple days.
I was finishing up the last song when my friends and crew came jumping out on stage with signs and balloons singing along. I smiled jumping and dancing next to Scooter, Chaz and Ryan before my eyes started to look for Selena. When I didn’t see her I was slightly worried but knew I was being filmed so I kept the smile and dancing up until the song ended and everyone on stage took a bow & we all hurried off stage.
I watched as the team and Justin’s friend pile out onto the stage with signs and balloons. I leaned against a box and couldn’t help but feel sad, a few tears slipped onto my cheeks and I quickly wiped them away thinking I was being ridiculous. I wanted to be out there with them, I wanted to be able to show my boyfriend support without having everyone mad at me for it.
The song ended and everyone hurried backstage, Scooter coming off first and giving me a huge smile that I didn’t return. I turned and started walking back to the dressing rooms when I felt Justin’s arms wrap around my waist.
“Why didn’t you come on stage babe?” he asked as we awkwardly walked down the hall with his arms around my waist.
“You were filming, its better if I’m not in that stuff I guess.” I shrugged wanting to tell him that really wanted to go out there but his manager said otherwise.
“But I want you in that stuff, Ryan and Chaz were in it.”
“They’re your best friends,”
“And so are you,” he stopped turning me to face him.
“I’m different though. Everyone gets mad when I’m in things of yours.”
“The fans get over it eventually. That shouldn’t keep you from having fun and nobody gets bad.” He smiled.
“Scooter obviously does,” I mumbled.
“Scooter what?” he asked missing the last part.
“He doesn’t want me in your stuff, I guess it’s understandable though.” I shrugged looking down at the floor.
“What are you talking about, he doesn’t care.”
“If he didn’t care then why did he ask me to stay out of camera shot and not to come on stage with everyone else?” I countered bravely.
“Wait, he told you…. Why would he, SCOOTER!” Justin stepped around me heading for the dressing room.
I grabbed Justin’s hand,
“Babe its ok I understand, he’s just doing his job.”
We stopped in the doorway of the dressing room with Scooter half way to the door,
“What’s up kid?”
“Next time you ask Selena to stay out of something make sure its okay with me first.” Justin spat.
I hid slightly behind Justin feeling like a young child who had tattled on someone.
Scooter held his hands up,
“I was just doing my job, I think its better if she stays out of things to keep the fans happy.”
“Make sure its okay with me next time, I get to make that decision not you.” Justin said reaching behind him and tangling his fingers with mine.
“Alright, I’ll come to you next time.” Scooter agreed.
Justin turned and started out the door but stopped and poked his head back in the room.
“There won’t be a next time, she can be in anything she wants to be.”
NOTE: I do not think this actually happens, its just a thought I had in my head.
I promise you
Things had gone public, I didn’t mean for it too but I was mad. I was hearing and reading things that pushed me to overreact. I thought I was done, I thought it was going to be over this time. I knew it wasn’t though; it was just another silly fight that I helped go public.
“Why is he in a hotel room with her? If something wasn’t going on why would twist delete the picture? Am I not enough for him anymore?”
“Woah woah woah, hold up this isn’t your fault!” Francia jumped in cutting my words off.
“Maybe it is, maybe I wasn’t seeing that he needed more & he went looking for it someplace else.” I sighed plopping down on the couch and pulling my knees up to my chin.
“What the hell? First of all you give him everything he needs and more, second if he did need more he should talk to you not go out a screw some other girl!” Jennifer Stone said bluntly.
“You think they actually did something together?” I gasped the thought making my heart hurt and my eyes water.
“No no, I was just trying to make a point.” Jennifer sat next to me rubbing my shoulder.
I took a deep breath trying to control my breathing and my phone started ringing.
“Are you going to answer it this time?” Ashley cook asked handing me my phone.
I glanced at the picture of Justin pressing a kiss to my cheek that flashed across the screen.
“No, I’m not ready.” I said pressing the decline button.
“You cant let him suffer too long he probably has no idea what’s going on.” Ashley said quietly.
“He knows what he did, I posted the picture he knows what he did!” I raised my voice.
“and what exactly did he do?” Ashley asked raising her eyebrow at me.
“He’s hanging out with girls in hotel rooms!” once it was out of my mouth I started to realize that I really didn’t know if he did anything wrong at all.
Ashley spotted the realization in my eyes & handed me my phone,
“I have a feeling you both are mad and need to talk about it, whatever is going on.” Ashley said grabbing the other girls and walking out of the room.
“I like your dress,” I said making conversation with Barbra,
She blushed and crossed her legs towards me on the couch.
“So what are we going to do?” she asked.
“When twist is done fixing his outfit we can figure out what to do now.” I said a nervous feeling building as she stood up and walked over to her purse on the table.
My eyes traced her long thin legs and I blushed when she turned around and caught me staring. She came back over and sat down closer to me this time as a silence came over the room as we waited for twist.
“Did you enjoy the lion king?” I asked breaking the silence.
“Yeah I did, thanks for sitting by me and keeping me awake.” She laughed remembering the moment when the play got boring and he kept poking her side to keep her awake.
“No problem,” I smiled poking her side again.
She laughed and grabbed my hand so I couldn’t do it again but I pulled my hand free and poked her again.
“Justin stop,” she giggled this time grabbing my hand with both of hers.
I leaned forward trying to push my hands toward her stomach so I could poke her even though she was holding my hands. She fell back slightly laughing and telling me to stop and I laughed and teased along with her. Our faces were closer than they probably should but I kept trying to get my hands free when Twist walked in.
“Woah did I interrupt something,” he smirked as I jumped back.
“shut up bro,” I laughed standing up.
Twists friend walked in a smirked at the situation,
“smile!” he yelled as I leaned against the open door with twist next to me. I felt a small hand on my shoulder blade just as the picture was taken. I turned around and Barbra was smiling,
“You’re being a creeper!” I laughed as I poked her stomach quickly before I turned to go sit back down on the couch.
“Fuck!” I harshly whispered as I saw the message Scooter had sent me. All it said was “Check Selena’s twitter, this isn’t good.” I had opened to Selena’s twitter and saw the picture I had taken with twist and Barbra in the back with the captions being, “…..” She had taken it in the wrong way, she was mad, she was very mad if she posted it on twitter. I quickly tried calling her but I quickly got her voicemail. I kept trying but over the next 45 minutes I got nothing but voicemail.
I pressed Justin’s name as my friends left the room and my heart started beating faster and faster with each ring.
“Sel!” Justin answered relived to get a phone call from her.
With the sound of his voice she got angry again.
“What is going on Justin,” I spoke through my teeth.
“You tell me what’s going on, what’s with that tweet?”
“Oh I don’t know there’s just another girl in the hotel room with you and it isn’t me.” I spit out harshly.
“Babe we didn’t do anything together,” he quickly replied.
“Who said anything about you guys doing things together, did you do something with her? Did you get cozy with her Justin? Did you two have fun together?” I chocked on the last word as tears fell from my eyes.
“Selena I didn’t kiss her!”
“But you got cozy, you stopped thinking about me and started focusing on her didn’t you.”
“Selena she came over to hang out after the Broadway show nothing extreme happened.” He tried to avoid my question.
“Oh so you went to a play with her and you got cozy in the hotel after!” I yelled my tears turning into tears of anger.
“Selena please nothing happened!”
“You’ve been distant lately Justin, you’re hanging out with girls outside of work. I think we just need a break.” I breathed out quickly.
“Selena, I was just teasing her and poking her that’s all that happened, don’t do this.”
“Teasing, poking other girls just doesn’t sit well with me and I’m sure it wouldn’t with any other girl.” I paused to take a breath and think about if I really wanted to do this. Justin was quiet on the other end.
“If I wasn’t giving you what you needed you should have just told me, I could have tried harder.” I whispered as the thoughts of this being all my fault flooded my mind.
“Selena no, you’re everything I need, I shouldn’t have hung out with her, I shouldn’t have got that touchy with her, baby I’m sorry.”
Silence, we both remained silent letting our minds run.
“Why did you post that tweet? You made things more public than they needed to be.” He finally spoke.
“I was mad Justin,” I replied quickly feeling slightly guilty.
“Now you’re friends are shading me on twitter making it look like I’m some cheater.” He said raising his voice.
“Well some people would call what you did cheating.” I shot back at him.
“Selena, teasing with Barbra meant nothing I was just messing around trying to make her comfortable.”
“So you flirt with her?”
“I wasn’t flirting!” he yelled
“What the hell would you call it Justin, poking her in the side means more than you think to a girl!”
“She has a boyfriend Selena!”
“Oh and that makes the situation even better doesn’t it Justin.”
He sighed into the phone.
“I’m sorry, please don’t give up, we can’t just let a 2 year relationship and a friendship end just like this because of some mindless teasing.”
“I’m not saying we are over, I’m saying we need a break.” I responded rubbing a hand over my face.
“Selena we’ve been away from each other for almost 3 weeks, how much more a break do you need? What we need is to see each other not stay away.”
I sighed trying to keep my tears at bay,
“Ill see you in NY Justin, we can see what happens then.” I said pulling the phone slowly away from my face to hang up.
“I love you,” he said before I hung up.
I set the phone down and curled up in a ball letting the tears fall and whispered,
“I love you too.”
Note: I do not know anything that actually happened between Justin & Selena, this is just one take on what went down a few weeks ago.
Im so sorry it has taken like a million years for me to write again but im back! i just didnt have time to write and had like zero motivation to write but here is a new part to Much More and im going to up date I promise you in the next couple days!
again im sorry and i hope you enjoy the story!
“Our house was broken into?” I questioned Scooter as I reached the lobby of the resort & picked up the waiting call.
“Yes, the intruder came in through the front door & set off the alarm. There was no forced entry so they had a key.” Scooter explained.
I quickly looked over at Selena,
“Did you ever find the spare house key?”
She shook her head no and scrunched her eyebrows in confusion and worry.
“Someone stole our spare house key.” I quickly stated to Scooter.
“How do you know that?”
“Selena called me a few weeks ago asking if I had seen the spare key because she couldn’t find it,”
“You could have just misplaced it,” Scooter said worry starting to lace his words.
“No Scooter it was stolen.” I said with positivity.
Selena grabbed my arm and whispered,
“The window that night when you came home from your business trip, it was open & I really don’t remember opening it.”
Everything started to fall into place,
“Someone broke into our house before, they came through the window. It had to have been when Selena was home because the alarm was disarmed.” I quickly explained to Scooter.
“They broke in to steal your house key?” Scooter stated confused.
“I don’t know why the hell they would just take the house key but they did & they broke into the house again. Did they take anything this time?” I asked handing a sleeping Ella to Selena who sat down in one of the lobby chairs.
“Nothing seemed to be taken & they left as soon as the alarm went off. Justin ill take care of everything, just enjoy your vacation & hopefully when you’re back in a week we will have caught the guy.” Scooter said as it sounded like other people had walked into the same room as him.
“Change the locks on the doors & we will be home in a week.” I said no knowing what else to do.
“Try and enjoy the week off with your family,”
“I will, thanks Scooter.”
“So can you tell me what exactly is going on because I’m freaking out inside.” I whispered as I laid Ella down & walked out of the room into the small living area in the resort house we were staying in.
Justin sighed & grabbed my hand pulling me to the couch setting me on his lap.
“Someone broke into the house, stole the spare house key & then tried to just walk through the front door but the alarm went off.” He explained while his hand rubbed circles on my thigh.
“Did they take anything?” I asked secretly being thankful that we weren’t there.
“No, Scooter said the person ran as soon as the alarm went off, that’s not the problem, the problem is this person broke into the house while you were home & took the house key but we don’t know why.” Justin seemed to tense up,
“Its probably just some kid trying to see if he can break into our house & when he did he thought to take the house key so he could come & go when ever we weren’t home.” I explained even surprising myself with how calm I was.
“Yeah, you’re probably right, Scooter is gonna have the locks changed so the punk wont be able to get in again.”
“Now that that is taken care of can we get something to eat while Ella sleeps?” I asked resting my head on his shoulder.
Justin chuckled as he kissed my forehead, I shook off the feeling that he was still worried & jumped up to grab the room service menu.
“Justin…” Selena moaned my name as my lips attached themselves to her neck and her naked body straddled my own. Her hands pulled on my hair as she tried to pull our bodies closer. I rolled over pressing her into the mattress as my hand lightly grazed her rib cage. I pressed my hips to hers making my name fall from her lips continuously getting louder. I dropped my head between her neck & shoulder & chuckled,
“Baby you’re going to wake up Ella.”
She ran her fingernails down my back as I continued my pace & she bit her lip to help quiet her moans.
Just as Selena’s body shook and I sped up to help her ride out the wave of pleasure I heard a faint cry come from the other room.
I leaned down capturing Selena’s bottom lip as I slowed and pulled away from her wanting body.
“Told you you’d wake her up.” I chuckled as I rolled off her & picked up shorts from the floor.
Selena sat up bringing the sheet up to her body,
“Its your fault,” she tiredly smiled.
I smiled to myself as I walked into where Ella was crying & picked her up.
“Was mommy a little too loud?” I cooed at Ella as I walked back into the room.
“Tell daddy that he should feel good about mommy being too loud,” Selena laughed as I handed Ella too her.
“Mommy sure knows how to make a daddy feel good about himself.” I said kissing Selena’s bare shoulder.
We pulled into the drive way and I sighed as I realized reality was setting back in. I grabbed a fussy Ella out of the back seat as Justin grabbed our bags from the trunk. We had stopped by Scooters place to grab the new set of keys to the house. I opened the door walking in & heading for the living room to put Ella down to place so I could help Justin bring our stuff in. As I flipped on the light and Justin set the bags he could carry in on the floor a man spoke.
“Lovely to have you back.”
I watched as Selena tried to keep Ella’s sand filled hands out of her mouth,
“Babe just let her eat it, she’ll realize it doesn’t taste good & stop.” I chuckled.
“Do you know how many nasty things are in this sand? She could get sick!”
“She’ll be fine,” I smiled looking out over the ocean.
We had gone to a private island resort & were enjoying our first day here on the beach. We were here for 4 days and I had told everyone to not bother me with work related issues unless it was urgent. Selena & I both had left our phones at the resort house & were enjoying time as a family.
“See I told you it doesn’t taste good,” Selena chuckled as she picked up Ella who had started to cry after putting a hand full of sand in her mouth. Selena sat down on my chair & reached for Ella’s bottle letting her wash down the remaining sand. My hand instinctively moved to her upper thigh as I looked back over a few lines to a song I had been writing.
“Hey,” she whispered causing me to look away from my ipad & at her.
She was leaning over me, her face close to mine still holding Ella in her arms.
“Thank you,” She whispered before leaning in & kissing my lips softly.
I kissed her back giving her thigh a slight squeeze,
“No thank you,” I said smiling back at her.
“I mean it Jay, I really needed this…we really needed this.” She gave me that smile I hadn’t seen in a few weeks & I felt my heart melt.
Selena leaned over sitting Ella down on the blanket & we watched as she rolled onto her hands & knees & rocked back & forth before flopping back onto her stomach.
“She’s going to take off soon,” I smiled kissing Selena’s sun kissed shoulder.
“I cant believe she’s 7 months already,” I continued rubbing my hands on her shoulders.
“7 months old & she’s already been through so much,” Selena sighed,
“Baby lets not think about that, we are here to forget everything & just enjoy ourselves.”
“How can I enjoy myself when I have to protect her… protect you & her from the world we live in.” Selena’s chest heaved with emotion.
“Baby…” I breathed as I realized what has been going on with her the past few weeks.
“I have to constantly check the people I let into our lives to make sure they don’t screw us over or want to hurt Ella. I have to make sure you don’t work yourself so hard you get sick & on top of that I want to get back into work but don’t know if I can handle leaving Ella again after what happened.” Selena spoke quickly spilling everything she had been keeping in.
A tear slipped down her cheek & she quickly brushed it away,
“You don’t need to worry, like I’ve said many times, ‘I’ll look after you’ I’ll look after Ella. I want nothing more than you two to be safe, to have everything that is good in this world.” I sat up more moving my body so I was now siting up next to her, I reached down & picked up Ella from the blanket. She snuggled her face in my next & I could tell she was getting tired. I closed my eyes briefly taking in that moment; I took a deep breath before opening my eyes & meeting Selena’s.
“I didn’t protect you or Ella when I should have, I didn’t see it coming, I should have, but I didn’t. I didn’t protect you guys & I have to live with that for the rest of my life. I promise you this, I will do any an everything to protect you from now on.”
I watched a tear fall from Selena’s lash & Ella squirmed slightly before going back to snuggling.
“You do more than you can ever imagine for us, nobody saw what happened coming & you cant tell yourself you should have seen it coming. You’re more than Ella & I can ask for.” Selena leaned forward placing her lips on mine.
Soon our kiss was interrupted by a resort employee,
“Excuse me, Mr. Bieber?”
I pulled away from Selena & stood up placing my free hand on Ella’s back rubbing it slightly.
“Yes?” I asked slightly annoyed by the interruption.
“I’m so sorry to bother you but you have a call that came to the resort & they said it was an emergency.”
“Did they give a name?” I asked my pulse risings, Selena had stood up next to me worry radiating off of her body.
“Scooter was all sir.”
“Is he still on the line?”
I looked down at Selena & before I could even put my shoes on I was headed up to the lobby with Ella still in my arms & Selena not far behind me.
