Elmo and Joey finally touched down in NAIA. They claimed their bags and baggages.
“Hey,hey!!” Said this dude trying to get Elmo and Joey’s attention.
“Hey man!” Joey greeted.
“What’s up,John!” Elmo said as he gave him the “Guy hug”. “Lets go,I’m tired. I need my sleep before the event tonight! ” John said. John ushered them to his car and started to drive after Elmo and Joey got there stuff inside the car. As they were getting off the parking lot of the airport,Elmo saw a billboard with a familiar face on it. “Hmmmm..” he said while looking.
“Hey,Joey,does that billboard face look familiar?” He asked. “Yes…. J.A.S…. Julie Anne Style..” Joey slowly reads the billboard text.The mention of Julie Anne made Elmo’s heart stop.
“What? JULIE? JULIE ANNE?” He asked in shock. “Is it?” Joey said trying to confirm it. “Yes,yes,it is” John said. Elmo looked at him. “Do you know her?” Elmo asked. “Well,yes,I actually model for her men’s clothing line!” He said as he drove. “Really? What thevheck man? I never knew that!” Elmo said in disbelief. His forehead made a crease. “Yes,that’s the event I’m going to tonight. ” he said. “Can I come with you man?” Elmo asked. “Wait,you know Julie?” He belatedly asked.
“Uhhhh,he knows her… more than …” he stopped because Elmo looked back at him with the “I’m ready to kill you ” look. “What is it?” John asked. “Nothing man! Don’t worry about it!” Elmo said. “But the events invite only!” John told Elmo. Elmo’s smile turned awkward. “Why are you frowning?” He asked him! “Dude,you have to get me in!” Elmo nagged. “Ill try. Ill give her a call!” He said. “Yes!!! But don’t tell her its me just say its a guest that’s willing to go there!” Elmo smiled to himself. Happy with his plan. He was glad Julie became a fashion designer just like what she wanted when they were still together.
After a few minutes they got to John’s condo.
Meanwhile, Julie and Betty got to the venue for preparations. She checked the clothes to make sure there’s no stain, wrinkles,or missing parts. She checked the food catering services if they’re doing okay. “What a busy day!” Julie said while sitting down with Betty in Starbucks. “Yess…” Betty said she was going to say something else but Julie’s phone rang.
“Hello?” She answered. “Ohh,John,what’s up?” She continued. “Can I ask for a favor?” He asked. “Oh yes for sure!” She gladly said. “Is it okay if I take my 2 brothers to the fashion show?” He asked. “I don’t want to..” Joey said but was stopped when Elmo hit him. “What?” Julie asked. “Oh,if its..”John started to asked again. “Oh no,I thought I heard someone..” Julie said. “Yea,for sure!” Julie gladly agreed. “Yes! Thanks Julie!” He said. “Ill see ya later! Bye!” She told him. “Bye!see ya too. Thanks again!” They both hang up.
“Ill that as a yes!” Elmo excitedly said. “Yep! She said yes!” John said. “Thanks man! But I didn’t know you know her like that!” Elmo commented. “Well,I’m kinda close to her cause my friend is courting her!” He smiled. “Co…Co..” he stuttered. “Yes,courting!” Joey said. Elmo’s excitement just turned to sadness but didn’t show it. He was in shock. John was getting suspicious as to why he wants to see Julie so Much but shock it off.
John started to get ready to leave early than the other two. “Ill see you guys there!” He said as he took his keys and headed out. “Bye!” Joey said.
“Dude,why didn’t you just tell him about you and Julie’s past?” Joey asked Elmo,who was lying on the couch. “I don’t want to say it!” He sighed deeply. “Well,if you want to see your first live then get ready!” Joey said. Joey has been there for Elmo ever since grade school. He knows Elmo and Julie’s past and why they broke up . He knows how hurt Elmo was when he had to break it off so he just doesn’t pressure him when it comes to it.
As they are getting ready,Julie Anne is getting the decorations displayed and helping the staggering backstage to get the models hair and make up done.
Elmo and Joey got to the venue using the rental car. They were checked off as Joey Lang’s brothers. Elmo and Joey sat on the second row since the first rows are for possible buyers. Before 8pm they got the things ready by 8:05 the fashion.
The crowd would clap or gasp at how JAS having a unique style and design.
While the fashion show is happening, Julie is backstaged having hassles. She was helping the models change in another clothing wear. She’d look at the crowd from time to time to see the crowds satisfaction of a certain design.
She looked out again just to see a familiar face. “She looked again to make sure. “Is that? ” she asked in disbelief. She closed her eyes and when she opened it,she sees him.Elmo looking right at her. She shook her head. “It can’t be” she said. She got distracted as a model asked her for help. “Huh?” She asked dumbfounded. “Could you please help me out by unzipping this dress?” The model asked. “Sure” she said as she unzipped the dress. “Cue,the finale is almost here!!” Betty excitedly told Julie. “Huh?yeah!” She smiled. She seems distracted by what she had seen. The announcer announced Julie Anne’s name! She came out in the runway and bowed and thanked everyone together with John and Maria. The cried gave her love and clapped for her.
Elmer came out to give her bonquet of flowers and Julie smiled at him and hugged him. While hugging him,she sees Elmo there… watching them.. hug..
