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?


19. Showtime

Matt's POV

After a lot of hard work of rehearsals I know the Newsies would steal the show. If it hadn't been for Taylor, the Newsies wouldn't be this excited for a show. I knew the show would be spectacular!

The curtain was closed as we heard the audience walking in. Everyone was backstage talking. "Newsies!" I shouted over the noise of them talking. "I just want to say how proud we are of you for putting in time and hard work for this performance. You guys will do amazing! Break a leg." Wyatt said.

"Thanks Wyatt" Jack said. "We will definitely make you proud." Wyatt and I smiled and left.

Jack's POV

I turned to the Newsies, Taylor, and Katherine. "Hey Jack, since Taylor has helped so much these past few weeks we should let her do the honors." Specs said. We all looked over at Taylor who was talking with one of the team members. "Good idea Specs. Hey Taylor" I called. Taylor stopped talking and looked over at us. I waved a hand to her and she walked up.

"Yea" ""Since you've helped us a lot over these past few weeks, we thought it would be a great idea for you to do the honor of a group cheer we like to do before every performance." I said. "Sure. Hands in" she said. We all put our hands in and did our cheer then Taylor gave us hugs all 'round. "Good luck guys" she said then went back stage.

The audience was quieting down and the curtains were about to open so Crutchie and I got in our places and the show began.

Taylor's POV

I was backstage putting Race's present together. I bought him a beauty and the beast shirt that was similar to mine. I hope he likes it. I walked out to my car and put the present in the trunk. While I was outside, I could feel Jack, my boyfriend watching me for some reason. I turned around and no one was there except for a chimney sweep and a few girls.

I walked back to the theater and slid through the door and went backstage to watch the rest of the show. The part they were at was during the rally.

When Snyder and the police walked on stage, I wanted to punch him in the face when the fight began. That reminded me of the original Newsies. I wanted to yell and scream at Snyder to stop and tell Crutchie to limp away but I knew that would be useless. I closed my eyes trying to rid the memory from my mind just as Race and a few of the other Newsies scrambled towards me. I got out of the way just before they hit me.

I walked over to the table and talked to Katherine about Race's party which was after the show. "So where are we having the party?" I asked. "The Newsies and I thought we could have it at The Cielo club in Manhattan." Katherine replied. "Great! Are we going after the show?" "The Newsies and I will but you can bring Race later." "I figured. I already put Race's present in my car so I'll check that off my list."

Race's POV

I saw Taylor over at the table talking to Katherine and walked up behind to her. "Hey babe" I said wrapping my arms around her and kissed her cheek. Taylor turned around. "Hey babe" she smiled and kissed my cheek. "How are you?" She asked. "Tired. What are you girls taking about?" "It's a surprise" Katherine and Taylor said. "Ok" I said. "I have to go on but I'll see you after the show Taylor." Katherine said. "Have fun!" Taylor said as Katherine went on stage for her scene with Jack and Davey.

Taylor and I were hanging out until I had to go on stage for Once and For All. "Are you doing anything after the show?" Taylor asked. "No why? Did you want to hang out?" I replied as she leaned against me. "Of course!" Taylor exclaimed and whipped around and kissed me.

I heard Once and For All start and that was my cue to get to my place. "I'll see you after the show babe. I love you." Taylor said. "I love you too" I smiled and hugged her then went to my place.

Davey's POV

After the show was over the Newsies came out for the curtain call while the audience applauded. We also thanked our crew bc w/o then we wouldn't be here.

As the audience were leaving, we went back stage and congratulated everyone. Race immediately ran up to Taylor and hugged her. "Congrats guys! You were all amazing." Taylor smiled. "Thanks Taylor" Crutchie said. "No problem" she said. A while later, the boys, Katherine, and I changed out of our costumes and were heading out. Katherine told everyone except Race to meet at the Cielo club in Manhattan while Race and Taylor did something else.

We all said bye to Taylor and Race then drove over to the club for Race's birthday.
