Lance paced back and forth in the living waiting impatiently for Julia to arrive. The storm had gotten worse and the rain was pouring heavily against the ground. Lance jumped when he saw the front door open. He sighed in relief as he saw Julia walking towards the stairs, soaking wet. "Julia." He said quietly. Julia stopped and looked at him. Lance looked at her. Her eyes were puffy and red. He couldn't tell whether she was still crying or it was the rain drops slipping down her cheeks. He started to walk up to her when she ran up the stairs. He ran after her. He walked into their room. He stopped as he saw Julia, packing her clothes in a suitcase. "What are you doing?"

Julia looked at him, her eyes filled with tears. "I'm going back home to Atlanta." She said as she stuffed her clothes inside.

Lance shook his head. "No... No no you can't."

"What do mean I can't? Remember you broke up with me. There's no point in me living here anymore."

Lance shook his head as he walked up to her, wrapping his arms around her waist. Julia tried to push him away, but Lance stayed in his position. "Let go of me."

"Julia please.... I'm sorry about what I said. I didn't know what I was saying..."

"Oh bull shit Lance!" She cried, tears flowing down her cheeks.

"Baby please... I'm sorry... Please don't leave me... Julia, we've been together for 3 years and 3 months... Please don't leave me just like that." Julia sobbed quietly as she rested her head on his chest. Lance hugged her tightly, as a few tears slipped down his cheeks. "I love you Julia."

"I love you too Lance." Lance smiled, as he lifted her chin. He kissed her lips over and over again, and hugged her tightly.

"Will you forgive me?"


"Will you go back out with me?"

"Yes." She said. Lance hugged her tightly. He placed his lips gently on top of hers and kissed her passionately. Julia sighed, as they pulled apart. She looked into his green eyes. Those eyes full of love and happiness. "So... What are we going to do about the media?"

Lance sighed as he thought. A sudden smile crossed his face. "I think I have something in mind."


* 5 months later *

"You guys hurry up!" Julia yelled, from the living room. Everyone came running in as they took their seats on the couch. "Come on, it's gonna start." Julia said. She grabbed the remote and flipped it to channel 68, MTV. They all quiet down as Carson came on the screen.

"Hi, I'm Carson Daly and welcome back to MTV's Total Request Live. Let's get to our World Premiere... It's off of Julia Davis' new album One Love... Well, we've all heard about her relationship with fellow NSync member Lance Bass... After 5 months, Julia's album is released as well as her new single ' True Love'. This song features non other than her boyfriend Lance Bass. Both are out to convince the world that, no matter what everyone says, their love for each other will always be forever... So, let's check out the World Premiere of ' True Love' by Julia Davis, featuring Lance Bass."

Everyone sat quiet as they watched Lance and Julia's video played through the screen.

When you came into my life You took away all my fears That were hiding deep inside

You were always there to guide me Always there to show you cared But this feeling that's inside me Is something that I never felt before

I always believed that True Love Was a special feeling Deep within the heart I hear you whisper in my ear That our love Is True Love

Everyone looked at each other as the video played through the screen. The emotion that Julia put into the song made everyone in the room teary eye, goose bumps caressing their body. They watched intensively as Lance came on to sing his part.

The very first time I saw you I just couldn't take my eyes away for you That night I realized The feelings that I had for you

I never knew what my life would have been If you never would have looked my way You showed me the real meaning of life The real meaning of love

They all sat quiet as Julia and lance came together to sing the chorus and the remaining of the song as one.

I always believed that True Love Was a special feeling Deep within the heart That I hear you whisper in my ear That our love Is True Love

Baby please try to realize This feeling that's inside I want you to realize The feelings that I have for you

I always believed that True Love Was a special feeling Deep within the heart That I hear you whisper in my ear That our love Is True Love

Then that's when I realized That you were my true love My one and only True Love

Everyone cheered and clapped as Carson came back on the screen. Everyone looked at Carson in awe as he whipped a tear from his eye. "All right. That was our World Premiere of ' True Love' by Julia Davis and Lance Bass. That's it for our show; we leave you with our number 1 most requested video. It's NSync, with "GONE" here on TRL."

Julia turned off the television and looked at everyone sitting in the living room. Enormous smiles across their faces. "That was so beautiful." Sylvia said, smiling widely.

"Yeah, excellent job!" Justin said, as he gave her a hug. Everyone else agreed as they congratulated her and Lance.

"Hey, by the way... Who wrote the song?" JC asked.

Lance and Julia smiled. "Sylvia did." They both said happily.

Justin's eyes went wide, along with the other guys. "You did." Justin said.

"She did?" JC, Chris, and Joey said at once.

Sylvia laughed. "Yes, I wrote it... I can write too you know."

"That was a good song." JC said happily.

Sylvia smiled. "Thanks."

"All right... Well, now that Lance's and Julia's relationship is settled... It's time to work on mine and Sylvia's." Justin said. Everyone looked at him. Dumbfounded looks across their faces.

"What's wrong with our relationship?" Sylvia asked, confused and was beginning to get nervous.

"Yeah, what's wrong with it?" Lance asked. The others nodded their head, looking for an answer.

Justin smiled. "There's something I've wanted to do for a while. And I believe this is the right time." He said. He slowly walked up to Sylvia, pulling his closed fist out of his pocket. He cleared his throat. "Sylvia Marie Glover." He began. He looked at her. His eyes full of love and happiness. He smiled, as he got down on one knee and opened his fist to reveal on gold diamond ring in between his fingers. "Will you marry me?"
