Chapter 10

"Hey J, there you are... We wer-" JC stopped talking when he saw Justin's trembling body on the ground. "Justin? Hey buddy, what's wrong?" He asked, as he knelt beside him. He saw a piece of paper in Justin's hands. He took it slowly and read it. His eyes went wide, as he looked back at Justin. "Oh my god." He said softly. "Justin?" He questioned softly.

"She's gone." He sobbed softly. "She's gone." He lifted his head up. His red teary eyes, looking sadly at JC.

JC sighed softly, placing his hand against Justin trembling shoulder. "Listen man... I know you feel like shit... But, we need to get ready for the show."

Justin sniffed, as he whipped the tears that were falling from his eyes. He nodded his head slowly, as he and JC stood up to get ready. Even though, he was in no mood to do a show.

* During the show *

The guys hurried as they sat on the steps on the stage. Justin sighed sadly, as he sat on the step quietly waiting for the clip to the entry of "Gone" to finish. He sighed heavily, his body starting to ache with pain. He ignored it as the music started to play.

There's a thousand words that I could say
To make you come home, yeah
Seems so long ago you walked away
And left me alone
And I remember what you said to me,
You were acting so strange
And maybe I was too blind to see
That you needed a change

Was it something I said to make you turn away
To make you walk out and leave me cold
If I could just find a way to make it so that you were
right here, right now

I've been sitting here
Can't get you off my mind
I'm tryin' my best to be a man and be strong
I drove myself insane wishing I could touch your face
But the truth remains, you're
Gone


Justin sighed, as the tears flew freely down his cheeks. The image of Sabina whirling around in his mind. The letter she had left him... The words good-bye... Ringing in his head.

Now I don't wanna make excuses, baby
Won't change the fact that you're gone
But if there's something that I could do, won't you The time is passing so slowly now
Guess that's my life without you
And maybe I could change my everyday, but baby I don't want to

So I'll just hang around and find some things to do
To take my mind off missing you
And I know in my heart, you can't say that you don't love me too
Please say you do, yeah

I've been sitting here
Can't get you off my mind
I'm tryin' my best to be a man and be strong
I drove myself insane wishing I could touch your face
But the truth remains, you're
Gone


Justin sniffed softly, as he stood up and walked towards the center of the stage. The tears rolling rapidly down his cheeks. The fans sat quietly, listening and noticing the tears in Justin's beautiful blue eyes.

What will I do
If I can't be with you
Tell me where will I turn to, baby who will I be
Now that we are apart, am I still in your heart?
Baby why can't you see
That I need you here with me?

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


He dropped to his knees. Singing his heart out. The emotions he put into the song were unbearable. Meaning every word that came out of his mouth. A feeling of hurt raging through his body. The tears streaming down his cheeks. His heart clenching with pain. His body trembling. His eyes, red and puffy. He cried as he sang. Praying and hoping Sabina would come back. Praying that she was there, watching him pour his heart out. Showing the love that he has for her.

I've been sitting here
Can't get you off my mind
I'm tryin' my best to be a man and be strong
I drove myself insane wishing I could touch your face
But the truth remains, you're
Gone

But the truth remains you're,
Gone

The fans cheered as the concert ended. Sabina sighed, as she sat in the VIP section. A baseball cap placed on her head and dark sunglasses covering her eyes. She slowly stood up and made her way backstage. No one recognizing it was her. Justin's performance was amazing. She sniffed softly; her eyes were red and teary. She stopped, as she saw Justin sitting in the hallway by himself. He was crying. She froze, as she saw Justin's eyes looking at her. She stood quiet, as he made his way towards her. "I'm sorry, but fans aren't allowed backstage." He said sadly. She sighed in relief. She nodded her head and walked outside. She stop and turned as she saw Justin looking at her from where he stood. <%=title%>
