"So this is where you work huh?" Sax asked as he and Jude pulled up out the front of G Major.
"Yep, this is where the magic happens." Jude smiled. "Come on I'll give you a tour." she offered as she climbed off the bike.
"I would love to, only I really should get to work myself." Jude gave him a look of disappointment.
"Raincheck though?" he smiled apologetically at her.
"Okay fine." Jude sighed and reluctantly stepped away from the bike. She pulled the helmet off her head and handed it to him. As she did so she shook her hair out with her hand, fluffing it up to get rid of the 'helmet hair' look.
"You look so dam sexy." He smirked at her. "There are so many things I would love to do to you right now." He gave her a suggestive look and she blushed a little and looked down.
"Sax..." She bit her lip nervously. She was still really unsure how to react when he made comments like that, she was still only young and was just beginning to explore her sexuality, so it still embarrassed her a little. "I'll see you after work yeah?"
"Of course you will." He pulled his helmet off and leaned toward her. "I'll miss you, and those tasty lips of yours." He reached a hand behind her head and pulled her in for a passionate kiss.
When they finally pulled apart Jude's whole body was tingling. She leaned back and bit her bottom lip.
"See you later sexy." he winked at her, put his helmet back on and then started his bike. He blew her one last kiss before he kicked up the stand and took off down the street.
By the time Tommy arrived at the G Major, Jude had already settled herself into the couch in the studio. When Tommy saw her he couldn't help but stare at her as she hummed gently and nodded her head along to the tune she was humming, stopping every now and then to scribble in her notebook or to strum a few notes out on the guitar.
There was something about when Jude was writing he just loved to watch, the look of concentration on her face as she played, trying to match chords to the lyrics she had written. The thing he loved most about watching was how she just seemed to drift off into her own little world, ignoring everything around her and just pouring herself into the music with so much passion.
He wasn't really paying much attention to the song itself until she started playing the chorus and singing along to it out loud.
"I'm sorry if I say I need you
but I don't care I'm not scared of love
Cause when I'm not with you I'm weaker
Is that so wrong
Is it so wrong that you make me strong."
She stopped playing and scribbled a little more in her notebook, crossing out a few words and adding in some more. She sighed and looked up and that's when she noticed Tommy staring at her. She immediately slammed her notebook shut and put her guitar down.
"How long have you been standing there for?" She snapped, a tone of shock in her voice.
"Not long." He smirked, knowing she knew he had been watching her and that it obviously irritated her. "What was that you're working on? It sounds pretty good."
"Nothing really, just a new idea that popped into my head, nothing important." Jude responded quickly. "Is there something I can help you with?"
"Yeah actually, I just wanted to talk...about this morning."
"You know I really don't care what you do with my sister anymore Tommy. I've moved on, I'm over it so there's nothing to talk about at all really." Jude stood up and shoved her notebook into her bag, then slung her bag over her shoulder.
Tommy was a little dumbstruck, he really hadn't been expecting a response like that from her, it was as if she had changed overnight into a completely different Jude, and he had a feeling he knew what, or rather who, was responsible for Jude's new attitude towards him, he just had to find out for sure.
"Jude that's not what I actually meant. There was something else I needed to talk to you about."
Tommy really didn't know how he was going to approach the subject of Jude's new boyfriend with her. He knew it really wasn't any of his business after everything that had happened between them, especially if his suspicions weren't correct and she was actually seeing someone completely different than who he was thinking about. But he also knew all about Lucas's past, and what he was capable of and if Jude had gotten involved with him, Tommy knew that he had to warn Jude about him. The last thing he wanted was for Jude to get hurt and if he didn't warn her now before she got too involved with him, he knew that was exactly what was going to happen.
"Well unless it's about my music there really is nothing we need to talk about anymore. You're my producer, I'm your artist and that's pretty much where our relationship ends."
Tommy was shocked at the way Jude was speaking to him, it was as if he was seeing a whole new side of her, and it was a side he didn't particularly like. He had to find out once and for all if Lucas was the reason for all the change, whether Jude wanted to talk about it or not.
"I saw you this morning Jude, taking off on the back of the bike. Who were you with?"
"Not that it's any of your business, but that was my new boyfriend Sax." Jude looked straight at Tommy when she said it, the tone of her voice as she said the word boyfriend was meant like a knife through Tommy's chest.
"Sax?" Tommy questioned, "As in Saxton, like Lucas Saxton?"
"How did you know that?" Jude's response confirmed his suspicions. She was in fact seeing who he thought she was,
Tommy knew then, that no matter how much it would hurt his relationship with Jude he needed to say something to her about it. She needed to know the truth about who 'Sax' really was before she got too involved with him. He was just really unsure about how to approach the subject with her, without giving away too much information about his own past.
There were things that went on in his past life he really didn't want anyone to know about, especially not Jude.
"He's not who you think he is Jude."
"What did you do, run a background check on him or something?" She shook her head in disgust. "You know you really have no right. You made it abundantly clear you're not interested in any kind of relationship with me so I moved on, I may have actually found someone who makes me happy Tommy. Sax doesn't care about my age, or how I look, or how I dress or anything else like that. He likes me just the way I am and it just so happens that I really like him too. He makes me happy Tommy, which is more than what I can say about you right now," she practically hissed at him,
Tommy knew Judes words were meant to hurt him, and as much as he hated to admit it she was right he hadn't been doing much lately to make her happy, in fact he had pretty much been doing nothing but make her miserable. Still he had to let her know what she was getting into, even if she wasn't going to believe him, he still needed to say it.
"There is something you really need to know about him Jude, he really isn't who you think he is. He is dangerous."
"I really don't want to hear it Tommy. In fact I don't think I want to talk to you at all anymore, how about you worry about your love life and I will worry about mine. From now on it's strictly business between us, nothing more. Now if you'll excuse me I have a meeting with Darius and Liam."
With that comment Jude turned her back on him and left the studio, not even giving him a chance to respond.
