Summary : Not everyone is lucky in their love department, at least not for James in general. Luckily he got some helps this time around.

“I think we all know why we gather around today,” Darren sat on one of the stool facing the other two guys in front of him.

Mark and Sebastian nodded their head quietly, looking at each other and Darren as well.

“As much as I want to report anything,” Sebastian piped up, “It’s negative for me.”

“Me too,” Mark sighed softly.

Darren gulped down the word of his two friends.

“Maybe we should just introduce James to someone else. Someone who play in his league.”

Mark nodded, “I second that. Anything to keep James from that heart breaker.”

“Guys,” Sebastian exclaimed quietly, “That’s not how love works. Don’t you guys get it? James likes Cale.”

“Well technically James not sure if he is in love with Cale,” Mark protested angrily.

Sebastian looked at Darren, curiously asked, “How about you Darren? Aren’t you going to protest too?”

“I don’t know what to think anymore,” Darren cupped his face sighed, “I haven’t see Cale anywhere near James lately.”

“Probably run off with some girls,” Mark shrugged, “That straight bastard.”

Sebastian took a step out of from his chair, glued his eyes on his friend.

What does it take to convince his friends that true love is existed?

“I’m not going to give up on this. I’m going to go and look out for Cale guardian.”

“I better go with you,” Darren added.

Mark watched his friends reached for their coat.

“That’s not fair,” Mark scowled softly, “I want to go with you guys.”

Darren patted his friend softly by the shoulder.

“Let me and Sebastian handle this one. We still need someone to look after James.”

“No one knows James better than you do Mark,” Sebastian smirked.

Mark watched his two friends as he let out a quiet sighed.

“Then brings me some good news.”

“We will,” Darren and Sebastian nodded, smiled tugged on their lips.

Before his eyes, Darren and Sebastian disappeared into the thin air.

Mark snapped his fingers once and James folder appeared on his hands.

Humming quietly, Mark whispered, “What does James like to do in his free time?”

☯☯☯☯☯

“Where is everyone?”

James took the next order on his left hands with his eyes kept searching into the crowd.

Hoping that he will see any familiar face.

With two men downs, James practically ran around the diner.

He really could use some helps now.

A bright smiled appeared on his lips when he saw Mark on the corner table.

Strutting down, his hand landed harshly on the table, startling his friend.

“Mark,” James exclaimed happily, “Thank god that I found you.”

“What’s the matter?” Mark asked quietly.

He looked at James with interested.

“Have you see Sebastian? I need some help here,” James sighed.

“He went out with Darren,” Mark replied short.

“B-but I can’t handle this place all by myself,” James voiced out his concerned.

Mark smiled knowingly, “Look at your back.”

“What?” James confuzzled but he followed Mark eyes.

There were several girls and guys just showed up in their place.

James never had seen them before.

Where do they come from?

“Who are them?” James gazed at his friend curiously.

Mark chuckled, “The moment I knew Darren and Sebastian not here, I ask some helps from my old friend. He agrees to send some backup, until Sebastian and Darren come back.”

James nodded a little, smiled warmly, “You’re a life saver.”

“I know,” Mark giggled softly, “Now you got to help me.”

Mark plopped out from his chair, brought James to the seat next to him.

“Mark,” James watched Mark quietly, “I have work to do.”

“It’s not going to take long,” Mark calmed his friend down,

Tentatively, Mark hand out a piece of paper for James, “I wrote some lyrics for the past few days and I want some input from my friends, and that includes you.”

James shook his head, “But I don’t know anything about song writing.”

“I just want to know if you can make any tunes out of it,” Mark smirked which turned into a small laughed when James looked at him confused.

☯☯☯☯☯

Looking outside through the window, Cale sighed quietly.

With the pile of work that kept coming to his desk, he surprised he didn’t die from over work.

He closed his eyes for a brief second try to breathe.

Like he had expected, James popped out of the blue in his mind.

“This doesn’t mean anything to me,” Cale whispered quietly.

He knew he could overcome his feelings for James.

Until then, Cale knew he needed to keep fighting.

☯☯☯☯☯

“Let’s tries it,” Mark gazed at James smiled warmly.

He read somewhere that music can convey a person feeling.

Maybe this will help James and him in the progress.

James looked at Mark curiously when his friend tried to make a beat with a fork and a spoon.

He looked at Mark again when Mark nodded his head to him.

James can feel the nerve started riding on his back when he read the first line.

[James] Midnight, you come and pick me up, no headlights

Down the block, Cale picked up the same line from James, humming his own rhythm.

[Cale] Long drive, could end in burning flames or paradise
Fade into view, oh,

[James] It's been a while since I have even heard from you
[Cale] (Heard from you)
[James] I should just tell you to leave 'cause I
[Cale] Know exactly where it leads but I
[Both] Watch it go round and round each time


[Cale] U got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
[James] And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like
[Cale] And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
[Both] 'Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

[Cale] You've got that long hair slick back, white t-shirt
[James]
And I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
[Both] Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

[Cale] So it goes, he can't keep his wild eyes on the road
[James] Takes me home, lights are off he's taking off his coat (Hm yeah)

James turned his head toward the stage and saw some guys already behind the drum and the keyboard.

From the corner of his eyes, Mark was plucking his guitar going along with the band.

[James] I say "I've heard that you've been out and about with some other girl"
(Some other girl)
[Cale]
He says "What you've heard is true but I
Can't stop thinking about you and I."

[James] I said "I've been there too a few times"

[Cale] Cause you got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
[James] And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like
[Cale] And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
[Both] 'Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

[Cale] You've got that long hair slick back, white t-shirt
[James]
And I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
[Both] Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

[James] Take me home
[Cale] Just take me home
[Both] Yeah just take me home, oh

[Both]
You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

“Hmmm,” Cale and James sighed softly, licking their bottom lips before they continued their work again.
