Will You Stay

Chapter 5: Party Time!

"Ashley you didn't have to do this for Maya she would've been happy with us being there at the apartment." said Shawn as they were driving to the restaurant.

"Shawn she's 14 now and she deserves a party. So what if it's just us we should still celebrate the birth of that amazing girl."

"Okay fine you talked me into it. But why would you rent out the whole restaurant for ten people."

"Well make that thirteen and a half."

Shawn accidentally slammed on the breaks when a stop sign came up. "Thirteen? And how do you get half a person?"

"Okay before we continue you should probably pull over." He pulled over and parked in front of a row of shops. "Well I invited Johnny because I wanted to perform some songs for the party and I invited Alyssa and her mom Janine for personal reasons."

"Now what about the half-person?" She kept trying to avoid his eyes as her heart began to beat faster. He put his hand under her chin and turned her face to look at him. "What are you so afraid of?"

"I'm afraid if I tell you then you'll just run."

"I'm not going anywhere." The air grew thick with tension as she tried to find the nerve to say what she needed to say.

"The half person is my one year old son Jeremy."

His eyes opened up wide as he plopped back to his seat completely dumbfounded. It felt like a slap in the face. "You have a son?"

"He's my foster son. He's Johnny's biological son. He was seventeen when he was born; the mother wanted to put him up for adoption but he didn't want that. She forfeited her custody but he held on to his, and since he was still a minor and not having the best track record he couldn't keep him. So I stepped up and chose to foster him until Johnny can prove he's a fit parent and stay out of trouble."

The car fell silent again except for the few cars that passed by. She could see that he was still letting it sink it, and she began to fear the worse. She got out of the car and began walking; Shawn got out and instantly went after her.

"What the heck Ashley? You leave before I even get a chance to respond?"

"Because I already know how you'll react! You'll say that you think we should just be friends because now you know about my baggage. It's the same story just different guys; you want the fun and the romance but don't want to take on any "responsibility." Well guess what he's my responsibility not anybody else's."

"What makes you think I'll run? I'm standing right here in front of you; if I wanted to run I would've driven off by now. I'm not like other guys; it just took me a while to process this because I couldn't imagine you being able to go to school, go to work, have a child, and a boyfriend. I feel terrible for the times I asked you to spend time with me and the kids now that I know you had a little one at home. I'm so sorry."

She started laughing as she was brushing away the tears from the corners of her eyes. "Shawn you shouldn't feel sorry for asking things like that. I love hanging out with everybody plus it allows Johnny to be able to take care of his son. Besides I'm a superhero so I can go long days without sleep." He pulled her in for a hug and everything felt right with the world and nothing could ruin what they had. "Let's go before everybody thinks we ditched them."

They walked back to the car and started driving again. Shawn was a little better now but he still felt a chip on his shoulder. "Now I'm nervous again. What if he doesn't like me?"

She placed a hand on his shoulder in a reassuring way. "Shawn he's one the only things he does not like  are carrots and spinach." He turned and kissed her hand feeling a little better about meeting her "family."

~*~*~*~*Fifteen Minutes Later*~*~*~*~

They walked through the doors to see that the gang had arrived already; however Ashley was notified by Simon that Janine was running late with the rest of the party. Maya looked so happy surrounded by her family and Ashley couldn't help but smile. "Hey you crazy kids what kept you?" said Cory.

"We had a discussion Cor sorry we're a little late."

"What could be so important that it couldn't wait till you got here?"

Just as Shawn was about to say something the doors opened and a group of people came in and one of them was holding a baby. The gang was confused when she went over to them and picked up the baby. "Okay everybody let me introduce you to my family this is Johnny he's like my little brother, this is Alyssa she's like my little sister, her mother Janine, and this is Jeremy… he's my son." Once again the room went silent except for the babbling coming from Jeremy.

"Wait? How? When?" Cory was freaking out more than usual when Shawn was trying to calm him down.

"Cor you've got to chill out."

"Why am I freaking out and you're not?"

"Because she told me about him. That's what our discussion was about. I'm actually excited about this so please keep your cool."

Cory saw the look on Shawn's face and knew he was serious about this. He's never seen Shawn so excited about meeting someone especially a child. Maybe this meeting is a good thing and he'll be able to shed his insecurities.

"Riley, Maya, Lucas, and Farkle I'd like for you guys to get to know Alyssa. On Monday she will be your new classmate and I want you to look after her."

"Ash I'll be fine."

"It'll be fine Miss Ashley we'll look after her." said Lucas.

They all sat at the various tables leaving Shawn and Ashley standing there with Jeremy. She looked down at Jeremy motioning for him to look at Shawn. "Jeremy this is Shawn. Can you say hi?" He lifted his hand and did a little wave while smiling. Shawn smiled back at him and gave him a wave back. Then it happened everyone was quiet, Shawn's heart skipped a beat, and it took his breath away. Jeremy reached out his arms so he could be picked up by Shawn.

Everyone looked in awe however Maya showed a little bit of pain in her eyes. Johnny gave a little smile but also had held back a tinge of anger. Jeremy hugged Shawn and it felt like the earth stood still he couldn't help but shed a few tears. He didn't grow up in the best of families and he didn't have a chance to have a child of his own but at that moment everything felt right. Johnny came up to him and tapped him on his shoulder. "Hey I know you're having a moment but Jeremy hasn't eaten since two and if he doesn't eat soon he's going to throw a fit." Shawn nodded and handed Jeremy over. He turned back to Ashley and she lunged into his arms; she hadn't had this feeling in a long time and all she could do was hold on to him.

The party commenced with Johnny, Ashley, and Alyssa performing a few songs. The girls were showering Jeremy with attention and Maya was able to spend some time with Maya on her big day. Everyone was dancing while Katy and Shawn were left sitting at one of the tables. "Thank you so much Shawn. I haven't seen her this happy in a long time."

"This was all Ashley's idea. I was just here for the ride."

"So how does it feel being a new dad?"

"C'mon Katy I'm not a dad. He has a dad and he's up there on stage with the guitar. Like I said I'm just here for the ride."

"Shawn he may not be your son but that doesn't mean you can't act like a father towards him. We all saw your paternal instincts seep through when you held him. Who knows when will be the next time you'll get to feel that again."

He sighed and hung his head a bit and she realized what she just said. "Okay I take that back. I know you'll have that chance but for now you just got to cherish the cards that you were dealt with." The music slowed down as the songs transitioned and a familiar melody came on.

'When your legs don't work like they used to before And I can't sweep you off of your feet Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love? Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?'

"Thanks Katy. I really needed that pep talk." He gave her a big hug and proceeded to the dance floor. Jeremy was beginning to get fussy in Farkle's arms but when he saw Shawn he held his arms out again.

'And, darling, I will be loving you 'til we're 70 And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23 And I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways Maybe just the touch of a hand Well, me - I fall in love with you every single day And I just wanna tell you I am'

Shawn picked him up and walked to the middle of the dance floor; Cory and Riley started dancing and so did Topanga and Auggie. Maya sat down next to her mom and she felt a little hurt that he was dancing with Jeremy and not with her. She laid her head on her mom's shoulder her mom tried to comfort her knowing that her feelings have been hurt.

'So honey now Take me into your loving arms Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars Place your head on my beating heart I'm thinking out loud Maybe we found love right where we are'

Shawn held him close and cherished the feeling of holding him. Johnny was on the stage trying not to show his anger because he understood that Shawn's never had a child so he never got that connection.

"Mom is it bad if I am upset at my own birthday?"

"Why are you upset baby girl?"

"There's something that I've always wanted and I felt that it was within my grasp but now I felt like it's gone forever."

She hugged her and gave her a squeeze "Baby girl it'll never be gone forever. You'll always have that chance."

Shawn held on to him for what felt like eternity and Jeremy eventually fell asleep from the constant swaying.

'So, baby, now Take me into your loving arms Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars Oh, darling, place your head on my beating heart I'm thinking out loud But maybe we found love right where we are Oh, baby, we found love right where we are And we found love right where we are'

About thirty minutes later they were done with their set and had packed up the equipment. Shawn was cradling Jeremy while he slept and the staff was cleaning up. Johnny came and got Jeremy from Shawn as they were leaving. Everybody said their goodbyes and the kids exchanged numbers with Alyssa since they were going to try and incorporate her into their group.

They were back in the car once again as he was driving her home. Once they arrived he walked her to her door and was about to walk back down the hall when she invited him inside. "You sure it's okay if I'm here?"

"It's fine. Johnny is putting Jeremy in his bed then he'll go home."

"Hey Shawn had a nice time tonight. You going to invite me and my boy over for any other occasions?"

"Of course Johnny if I ever have anything fun planned you'll be the first person I call." Johnny gave Shawn a handshake then headed out the door.

"It's late Shawn if you want to stay here you can." Shawn coughed nervously trying to stay quiet because of Jeremy.

"I don't know if that's such a good idea. We've only been together for like two months now."

"Shawn we're both adults besides we're just sleeping. I'm pretty sure you've had sleepovers with Cory before."

"I guess that will be alright. As long as you don't take advantage of me." He posed in a damsel in distress vibe but Ashley just pushed him aside and he fell on the couch.

"I'll go find you some clothes because you are not going to sleep in your suit."

Once she left he decided to do some exploring and he saw a lot of photos spread throughout the living room. A lot of them involved Jeremy and in every photo had either Johnny or Alyssa in it. They must be very close to have been together for so long. He saw an unfamiliar face in a few of the pictures: it was a man with semi long black hair and blue eyes. He wanted to figure out who he was but felt like that was a question to ask later on. He decided to go and find Jeremy's room to check on him.

Jeremy's room was a faded blue color and had animals all over the walls and his crib was decorated with Lion King bedding. He looked in his crib and saw Jeremy sleeping with a stuffed Pikachu. He looked so peaceful without a care in the world. "Why would someone want to abandon someone so precious?" With his mom abandoning him and his biological mother not wanting to meet him he felt empathy for him. He's only been alive for a year and he's already experiencing more pain than any other child. He placed a kiss on his head "I promise I will make sure that you won't ever feel abandoned. As long as I am here you will be loved." He whispered to him before he left the room.

Ashley was waiting for him in the hall with clothes in hand. "You're lucky Johnny left spare clothes here." She handed him the shirt and pajama pants and he was heading towards the bathroom she wrapped her arms around his waist and buried her face in his back. "Thank you. I don't need you to help me with him but it's nice that you care."

"Ashley I am going to help as much as I can. You might not need me to but I will because I don't want him to go through what I went through or feel what I felt. He's going to have a life filled with love I promise you that." She left him go and he gave her a kiss before he went to change.

She laid in bed and was writing something down in a journal when he showed up in the doorway. He shuffled to the other side of the bed and slid in; his face was beet red as he scooted towards her. "Shawn it's okay remember we're just going to sleep." She giggled as she turned off the lamp. She snuggled into her pillow and he was still a bit nervous but then he reached for her and wrapped his arms around her. He could get used to this life and who knows maybe he found his reason to stay in one place.

End Chapter

That's the end of another chapter! It's so long but it had a lot of information in it. I am sorry if it seemed a bit rushed but like I said I had a lot of information to cover such as characters that will play a big role later on in the story. I'm trying to keep up with the show and trust me I have something already planned for the Girl Meets Texas episodes so stay tuned!
