Working for the Newsies

Taylor Jacobs (yes Davey's sister) is just a normal girl with big dreams. She hopes that one day she'll make it on broadway.

Racetrack (Race) is a broadway star who loves the attention and has all the girls calling his name. The thing is he just wants to have a normal life.

What happens when their two worlds collide? Will Taylor finally get her wish to be on broadway? Will Race finally have a normal life?


8. Leaving

Taylor's POV

The weekend was coming to an end and I had to pack for New York. While I was packing, Jack walked in my room. "What are you doing Taylor?" He asked. I nearly jumped out of my shoes when I heard Jack come in. I turned around and looked at him. "Hey Jack. I'm going to New York for a few days." I replied. "Why?" Jack asked. "I got a job interview to be an intern on Broadway!" I replied. "That's great! I'm so happy for you" Jack smiled and hugged me. "Thanks" I said.

I called Makayla and told her the news then had her come pick me up and take me to the airport. I grabbed my bag, walked out of my room and downstairs to find Jack, Les, and Specs in the living room watching tv and talking.

Specs saw me walk in. "Hey Taylor" he smiled. "Hey Specs. How are you?" I replied. "I'm good you?" He said. "Great! I'm going to New York" I exclaimed. "That's great! I hope you fun." Specs smiled and went back to talking with Les.

Jack stood up and walked over to me and hugged me again just as I heard the doorbell ring. We walked to the front door and opened it and Makayla was standing there. "Are you ready?" She asked. I nodded and her and Jack helped me with my bags. The three of got to her car and Makayla got in and waited for me.

I turned to Jack and said, "Take care of Les and Davey while I'm gone." "Of course!" Jack replied. "Thank you Batman" I smiled. I hugged him and he kissed my forehead. "Call me when you land?" Jack said. I nodded then got in Makayla's car and we drove to the airport.

Makayla's POV

During the car ride, Taylor and I were talking about New York and how exciting it would be to work on Broadway. We also talked about the Newsies and Race in particular.

"So how's your family Taylor?" I asked. "They're good. My brother's in the hospital and we're hoping he gets better. The treatments they have him on are working." Taylor replied. "That's great! Since you'll be in NY, are you going to visit at all?" I asked. "Idk I'll have to talk to Matt and see what the Broadway Newsies schedule is." She replied. "Ok that's understandable." I said. We just listened to music for a while until we reached the airport.

At the airport:

"We're here." My dad said as we pulled up to the airport and parked. We got out and helped Taylor with her bags then we walked over to where her gate was and waited. It was 9:15 so my dad decided to get food.

Taylor, my stepsisters, stepmom, and I stayed there talking for a while. "So who was that guy you were talking to before we left?" I asked. Taylor thought about for a moment then said, "Jack? He's one of my brother's friends. Why?" "Just wondering. How old is he?" I asked. "18" Taylor replied. "Nice!" I said.

We were talking until Taylor heard her flight number called. "First call for New York" the ticket person announced. My dad came back with food and we ate. When the second call came we all got up and wished Taylor a safe trip. "Call me when you land?" I said hugging her. "Of course!" she replied. Taylor waved to my parents and stepsisters and gave me one last hug. She walked to the ticket counter with her bags and the lady checked her ticket then she was boarded the plane.

Taylor's POV

I walked on the plane and sat in my seat which was a window seat (Score!) and waited for the plane to take off. I still couldn't believe I was going to New York, be on Broadway, and work for the freaking Newsies.

"Hello and welcome to American Airlines. We are set to go to New York. The staff here at American Airlines want thank you for choosing us and we hope you enjoy your flight." The pilot announced over the intercom. With that, the plane took off and I was on my way to New York.

Jack's POV

After Taylor left, I invited Race, Kid Blink, and Specs over and we decided to visit Davey at the hospital. The five of us walked to my car and drove over to the hospital.

When we got there I signed us in to see Davey while Race, Kid Blink, Specs, and Les were waiting. After about 15 minutes of waiting, Les saw Davey walking down the hallway and ran up and hugged him. "Oof" I heard Davey say. He looked down and saw Les wrapped around him then saw us. "Hey guys!" Davey waved. Race, Kid Blink and I waved back then got up and walked over to him.

"What are you guys doing here?" Davey asked. "We wanted to see you" Kid Blink replied. "Thanks guys but you didn't have to" Davey said. "Why not?" Race asked. "I'm getting better and the doctors said I can come home in a few days. Plus I want to see Taylor before she leaves." Davey replied.

We all were silent for a moment. "What's going on guys?" Davey asked. "I'm sorry Davey but-" I was cut off when my phone rang. I looked at the caller id, answered it and walked away.

The call

"Hello" I answered

"Hey babe. I just landed." Taylor replied.

"Hey! How was your flight?" I asked.

"It was amazing!" She replied.

"That's great!" I said.

"I just got to my hotel and its pretty late so I'm going to bed." I heard Taylor yawn.

"Ok. Goodnight love and sweet dreams." I smiled.

"Goodnight Cowboy" Taylor said.

End call

Davey's POV

Who was that?" I asked. "Taylor" "What'd she say?" "She said that she just landed in New York." Jack replied. "I-I never got to say goodbye." I sighed and sat down. "Hey cheer up Davey. Taylor's gonna come visit." Jack said. "Ok" I said. We all sat here in silence until the doctor walked up to us.

"Davey Jacobs?" The doctor questioned. "Yes" I replied. "Your tests look good and you're free to go." The doctor said. "Great! Thanks doc" I smiled as everyone got up. The doctor had Jack sign me out then we all went home.
