A/N: This is set based around the events of Season 3 episode 13 "All I Want Is You" in between the prom and Tommy's declaration of love. I have also factored in the deleted scene where Tommy see's Jude before the Prom. Hope you like it.
Title: In Sickness and In Health
Summary: In the midst of all the G-Major auditing drama Jude gets sick. What will happen when Tommy comes to visit her?
Sadie was in the kitchen making a cup of tea for Jude when she heard a knock at the door.
"Coming." She called and she put the mug down on the bench.
"Hey." Tommy smiled at Sadie when she opened the front door.
"Hey." She replied. "Come in." She stepped aside and let him through, then closed the front door behind him.
"Is Jude here? She isn't answering any of my calls." He followed Sadie into the kitchen, where she went back to making tea for Jude.
"Yeah she's in bed, doctor says she has some kind of viral infection, so she has been sentenced to bed rest for the next few days until she has recovered.
"Is it serious?" Tommy asked, concern in his voice.
"Not really, doctor said it should go away pretty quickly. Dad's just gone to the chemist to pick up some antibiotics for her."
"Oh, well that's good I guess." He replied. "I just popped past to check on her, and update her on the whole G-Major drama."
"She's not really meant to be having any visitors. And I really would advise against it anyway if I were you."
"I will be quick I promise." He looked at her pleadingly.
"Okay fine." Sadie rolled her eyes. "But don't say I didn't warn you." Sadie turned back to making her cup of tea. "Oh and take this..." Sadie handed him one of the mugs. "Jude isn't exactly the...friendliest of people when shes sick. You might need a peace offering. And just make sure you're gone before Dad gets home,"
Tommy nodded and headed toward Jude's bedroom. He knocked slightly, but didn't wait for a response before walking through the door.
"Hey, I brought..." Tommy didn't even get to finish his sentence before Jude growled at him.
"What do you want?"
"I brought you tea…." He took a step closer to her and placed it on the bedside.
"Ugh" Jude growled again. "Just put it on the table and go away."
Tommy put the mug down and walked a bit closer to the bed.
"So you're pretty sick huh?"
"No I'm perfectly fine." She snapped sarcastically at him. "I always have a massive fever, struggle to breathe and can't stop vomiting. Oh and not to mention the fact that I have had absolutely zero sleep in the past 24 hours."
Tommy was slightly taken aback by her attitude, but couldn't help but smile at the sight of her.
"Really...I couldn't tell." He laughed. He had never seen her in such a vulnerable state before, her hair was messy and disheveled, her eyes were red and puffy, and peeking out of the blankets he could see her Wonder Woman pajamas.
His mind suddenly flashed back to the conversation they had the night of her Prom, where she asked him if he would still love her if she was in her pajamas with the flu. He wasn't able to answer her then, but seeing a side of Jude now that he had never seen before made the answer really clear to him.
"What are you smiling at?" She growled at him.
"Oh nothing. I was just...admiring your pajamas."
She quickly moved the blankets so they were fully covering her.
"I think they're cute. Very..non Jude like." He laughed.
"Quincy you'd better tell me what the hell you're here for or I'm going to start throwing things at you."
"Wow you're violent when you're sick huh." He laughed.
"What do you want?" She growled at him.
"Sorry. I just came by to let you know the latest about what's going on with G-Major."
"In case you hadn't noticed G-Major isn't exactly on the top of my list of things I want to think about right now." She groaned.
"Okay fine, then we'll talk about something else."
"I don't wanna talk." She replied.
"Well I can think of a few other things we could do…."
"Does it really look like I'm in the mood to do anything other than just lie here and not move?"
"Hmmm...nobody ever said you would have to move...much." He winked at her.
"Don't go getting any ideas Quincy. I can tell what you're thinking right now...so stop thinking it..." she looked at the expression on his face and picked up the pillow she wasn't using and threw it at his head. "Now."
"Okay fine….but let's just say that if you could read my mind right now I'm pretty sure that you would either be sexually aroused...or traumatized...or both I guess depending on what your preferences are." He laughed.
"Ugh!" She growled at him. "You need to shut up and go away!" She growled at him. "Now."
"Excuse me?" He gave her a confused look.
"You heard me. I said just shut up and GO AWAY!" She growled at him again, rolled herself over and covered her head with the blanket. He smiled, turned his back to her and walked out of the room shaking his head.
"Everything okay?" Sadie asked as Tommy reached the bottom of the stairs and looked back up toward Jude's room.
"Uh, yeah. It's just she was a little..." He couldn't think of the word.
"Bitchy." Sadie laughed.
"Yeah." Tommy replied agreeing.
"Don't worry it's not just you. She the worst when she is sick." Sadie patted him on the shoulder as she walked past him and started heading up the stairs. "She always has been."
"I can hear you. And I hate both of you" Jude screamed from her bedroom.
Tommy smiled to himself as he headed out toward his car. Jude may not have made up her mind, but he certainly had. There was one thing he knew for sure after seeing Jude in the state she was in. He loved her now, more than he ever had before. Now he just had to think of a way to show her.
A/N: Okay so the idea came to me when I was watching an episode of Jane the Virgin and when I saw that scene I just pictured Jude and Tommy...minus the baby part of course lol...but it was just so cute and fluffy I had to write about it. Hope you enjoyed it.
