When Two Worlds Collide- Dasey and Jommy Story

Chapter 4: Issues: Part 2- "We"

Disclaimer/AN: I own nothing and I made some structure changes to the early chapter nothing important though. THIS IS THE UNEDITED VERSION OF THIS CHAPTER!

Derek was able to catch up to Casey on her way home which was un avoidable because Casey was on foot while Derek drove the car. Derek was there the day that Casey broke up with Max and Derek knew it all. The thing your probably wondering is "if Casey broke up with Max then while is she still crushed about it". The thing us that she never wanted to break up with him but it was something she needed to do. When she finally realized that she was changing just for Max she realized that she was changing in to the girl that Max wanted: anther Amy . The reason that she had such a hard time breaking up with him was because she thought that he was everything she wanted and it hurt her that she couldn't make it work.

As Casey and walked home they realized that though this time was stress it was the only quite time they were going to get to enjoy the day. It was already 6pm and it was time for dinner wit the "family". The word family was a very loose word to describe them these day. The correct word would have been more like "battlefield". There house was crazier them normal and Casey and Derek were agreeing on something. So there was basically only two logical explanations: 1) hell has frozen over and the world is going to end or 2) there was something really wrong that involved all of the siblings. Well since crazy people are not roaming the street and ranting while fire balls were falling then it was most like the latter.

As soon as both Derek and Casey steeped in the house you could cut the tension with a knife. Both parent were "talking" and the "talking" was getting increasingly loud as each word was uttered by the angry man and woman. While this was happening 2 preteens and one small child were sitting on the couch with their eyes close as if wishing they were someplace else.

The 7 people that made up the so-called family all sat down in there new order of place in hopes of avoiding more fighting. George sat at the head of table while Derek sat to his left and Edwin sat to his right. Then, Casey sat next to Derek and she was right across from Lizzie who sat next to Edwin. Finally, Nora sat at the other end of the long dark wood table with Marti to her left and the empty guess chair to her right. This new arrangement was suppose to help stop the fighting at least during dinner because they both insisted upon family dinners every night. But this only changed the way they fought during dinner.

Everything would be quite and it was not by choice out of any of the 5 children. But the quite was in demand... more like an unwritten rule that no one naturally spoken first. The only thing that George or Nora did these day was fight or compete. They would make everything a contest and then they would have a fight. This little contest was one of the daily ones that were forced upon the family at dinner. Which ever family spoken first lost and it was just as simple and stupid as it sound.

Well tonight Casey decided to break the unspoken rule and lose the game because she had something to say. "Mom, you and George know we got a contract with G-Major right? Well I came up with a knew song and I want you to hear" Casey said in a questioning voice. Nora responded to her daughter with an emotionless "yes" without looking at her because she was glaring at George. The children looked at her with a bit of shock in there eye because they never knew she wrote stuff with out the band unless it was a spur of the moment song. Casey looked at everybody and began to sing...

Hey where did we go,
Days when the rains came
Down in the hollow,
Playin' a new game,
Laughing and a running hey, hey
Skipping and a jumping
In the misty morning fog with Our hearts a thumpin' and you My
blue eyed girl,
You my
blue eyed girl.blue eyed girl,
You my
blue eyed girl.blue eyed girl
You my
blue eyed girl

Whatever happened
To Tuesday and so slow
Going down the old mine
With a transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing,
Hiding behind a rainbow's wall,
Slipping and sliding
All along the water fall, with you

Do you remember when we used to sing,
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da

So hard to find my way,
Now that I'm all on my own.
I saw you just the other day,
My how you have grown,
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometime I'm overcome thinking 'bout
Making love in the green grass
Behind the stadium with you

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da.

Through out the song the children listened with intense interest but the parents just keep staring– no glaring at each other. Casey and the other noticed this and the fact that the parent didn't ever at least bother to give a fake interested reply made them feel depressed. Casey felt deeply hurt that not only did they not listen to world but her own mother didn't recognize the song or it mean to the McDonald family.

D/C T/J!"#

After there father, Dennis McDonald, walked out on them 6 years ago the McDonald really had to put together. At first they did not handle the break of their family well at all. Nora would walk around all day acting like everything while she cried at night and the girls just did everything lifelessly because they were in so much pain from there father leaving. Then day the decided to go to the mall be Lizzie needed a soccer uniform for tryouts. After they found the store and picked up the baby blue colored outfit they existed the store. All of sudden Nora heard a tune that jogged her memory and made tear well up in her. Casey even at her young age caught to the fact that it was the back round music to her parents wedding song. Out of know where Casey came up with a great idea and she began to sing a song off the top of her head. Casey thought that connecting the music with something happy would help her mother. Sure enough Lizzie began to join in this crazy and her mother too. They all were laughing at the song and somehow they all knew that they would be okay.

Now her she was 6 years later singing the same song only with a small remixing done and Nora didn't even notice. As if a planned out all 5 children left the table without a "goodbye" to there parents and the only thing said by Nora and George was "put Marti to bed later while you up there" and with that the parents took the dishes to the kitchen.

Once everyone was upstairs Lizzie and Edwin went to Edwin's room, Marti went to her room, while Derek and Casey went to her room to work on song for D-Rock. Casey and Derek walked in to the room and she sat on her bed while Derek pull out a chair and straddled it. For a long while, no said anything until Casey spoken with shattered the silence. "I have know idea what to write because I all these emotions inside me because of what happen with out parents." she blurted out. All of a sudden there parents began to fight as if to prove what Casey was saying. "There you go Casey that emotion is what you drawing your song from. Just go with it!" said Derek and Casey was shock at how wise Derek was being. Then again all Derek really committed to was music. "Ok but you have help because Tommy said he wanted at least one duet."said Casey. Derek nodded and she began to sing...

She's independent and beautiful
Wish I could be like her She's got the girls and the boys
So wrapped around her finger
Rumor is she's some kind of dream
Nobody knows she cries herself to sleep

We are not that different from each other
We just want somebody to discover
Who we really are when we drop our guard
That love has gotta start with you and me

It didn't take Derek long to realize that Casey had taken his advice to heart. She was sing about th e emotions that she was going through during there parents fight. You could see that she was really trying not to cry and keep her voice even so she could sing. Derek remember what she said before and he took the next verse following the same kind of emotions.

He's on the top of the social scene
He's stylish cool and clever
He's got a cool attitude that says
He's got it all together

You'd think he's addicted to himself
But he wishes he could be someone else

We are not that different from each other
We just want somebody to discover
Who we really are when we drop our guard
That love has gotta start with you and me

Casey was shocked. That short sentence said it all and it was really all she could express at the moment. The emotion and words coming out of Derek mouth left her speechless and they went perfect with what she had sang. What shocked her most though was the fact that he showed any emotion at all. Of course Casey knew he had emotions but he never really show least of all to her because it wasn't "cool".

We've gotta come together
Oh You know you don't ever have to be alone
You've got a hand to hold

Yeah Lalala Oh Oh Oh

We are not that different from each other
We just want somebody to discover
Who we really are when we drop our guard
That love has gotta start with you and me
We Oh Oh And We And We You and me We
We've gotta come together

They sang the last verse together after Casey sung the verse before. At that moment they both realized something that scared them to the core. Since there parents can't seem to function without fight they are going to have to get along to help the kids.

Just as they both made thus conclusion Marti started to fuss in her and came running to Casey and Derek. "Smerk and Smasey can you tuck me in, please?" said Marti. She didn't even bother to ask her parent because even at such a young age she knew they wouldn't bother with her. The eldest children nodded and walked out of the room to tuck in Marti while the middle children got ready to for bed themselves. While writing that song Casey and didn't notice it was nearly 10:30pm.

A parent's work is never done...
