The story so far

Chapter 24: An End to Troubled Times

written by Rachel

added on: 10 Nov 1999 - based on characters created by Winnie Holzman

Jordan and Angela have both woken up.
Jordan : Angela.. I'm really sorry, y'know, about how I was earlier. Because I meant what I said at school, and I don't want to like, lose you again or whatever... (trails off)
Angela: It's... it's okay. Vo: Here I am, forgiving Jordan again. Sickening, I know, but for some reason... I mean it. I do forgive him. For everything. He's touching my cheek. He's touching my cheek and I feel a tingle that runs all the way down to my toes.
Jordan: begins to kiss her
Angela: reacts to the kiss and kisses back, but after awhile breaks away.
Angela: Jordan... what time is it? It's really late. Ohmigod, it's 1 o'clock, my parents are going to kill me! I have to go home!
Jordan: (smiles) Okay... (kisses her) But can I play a song first? I wrote it.. y'know... about us.
Angela: (Smiles to herself) yeah.. yeah. (sits down, prepared to listen)
Jordan: (sits down and begins to strum his guitar. Gets a thoughtful look on his face.)
It's called 'Troubled Times.'
"When you think you've found something worth holding onto
Were you reaching for attention, hoping she would notice you
Collecting bottles and thrown - away cans
Like she was returnable
One day would refill you hands
How she loved you, all you imagined
Fit so well into your plans

Maybe one day soon
It'll all come out
How you dream about each other sometimes
With a memory of
How you once gave up
But you made it through the troubled times

Pining away every hour in your room
Rolling with the motion, waiting 'til it's opportune
Sitting there watching time fly past you
Why do tomorrow
What you could never do
How she loved you
All you could imagine
All the shit you put her through

Maybe one day soon
It'll all come out
How you dream about each other sometimes
With a memory of
How you once gave up
But you made it through the troubled times

And it takes a lot of nerve to ask how she is doing
Start with a weak foundation, you will end in ruins
The way the days and hours pass you'll never understand
Falling like rain through your hands

Maybe one day soon
It'll all come out
How you dream about each other sometimes
With a memory of
How you once gave up
But you made it through the troubled times."

(Pan to Angela, who wipes a tear from her cheek. Walks over to Jordan and leans down, kissing him without saying a word. Jordan sets down his guitar, then kisses her back.)

Angela: Jordan... that was.. beautiful.
(Jordan blushes)
Jordan: I just.. always knew, you know?
Angela Knew what?
Jordan: That we would like, make it, or whatever.
Angela: (smiling) what.. through the troubled times?
Jordan: Well.. (smiling) yeah...
(They kiss as we hear Jordan's song lightly in the backgroud. Fade out.)



Author's note: "Troubled Times" is a real song by Fountains of Wayne. It's a really really pretty song on a great cd called Utopia Parkway, and I thought it fit what happened in the series and in our fanfiction with Angela and Jordan perfectly. However, in the story, it was written by Jordan, and not Fountains of Wayne. This time what he wrote for Angela was his original work! If you aren't familiar with the song, check it out. You need to know it to picture the scene above, and it's an awesome cd anyway. That's all for now.
