Sophia was on her break, staring out of the window when she saw Jon pull up in a car. She couldn't believe he was finally here, it felt like ages since she last saw him and when she spoke to him on the phone it had sounded like he wasn't going to have time to make the trip to see her while he was in Chicago. She almost threw her coffee away as she jumped up from her seat and ran out the door to meet Jon, bouncing into his arms for a long lingering kiss. "I'm on a flying visit, couldn't get any time off but we can spend a couple of weeks together in New York soon. You've got time off and so do I before the tour starts," Jon explained as he put Sophia back down. "That's great! I can show you my new apartment then. Although I haven't really seen it myself yet but that's the plan anyway," Sophia said to a confused looking Jon. "Yeah, I landed the job on that TV show, means I'll be needed much longer this time so had to find a permanent place at short notice," she explained. "Hey, Tallarico, where's the fire?" a tall man shouted in a gruff voice from the doorway she had just left. "Oh Jon this is Gerard Butler, he's the lead in the movie and my new flatmate. Gerard this is Jon," Sophia introduced the two men. "Ah Jon, I've heard a lot about you, good to finally meet you," Gerard said as he shook Jon's hand.
Jon didn't know how to feel. His girlfriend was moving in with some other guy while he was going on tour. "Aye, she's going to move in with me for a bit, I won't be there most of the time but the apartments in a great place for her work and the best you'll find at such short notice," Gerard told Jon. "That's nice of you," Jon said, unsure of anything else to say that wouldn't lead to him punching this guy. He decided to stay calm, getting angry would only upset Sophia and if she trusted this guy then surely he should trust her judgement, right? His mind was in overdrive, he had never felt such jealousy before. "Well, I'll get out of you two lovebirds way. Nice meeting you and I'll catch you later Tallarico," Gerard said before excusing himself to talks to a group of fans at the entrance. Well that's a good sign, he didn't want to join us for lunch, Jon tried to convince himself without letting on to Sophia that he was bothered by the man. Taking a deep breath, he lifted Sophia up and placed her inside the car as he whisked her off for a romantic lunch. He had spent most of the night organising it since he knew the time would be limited with the press schedule but he had managed to pull it off and they enjoyed a beautiful meal together. Jon's mood dropped again when he took Sophia back to the set to find Gerard surrounded by a group of beautiful women. His goodbye was as warm as he could manage after seeing the man his girlfriend would be living with and they parted ways once more.
Sophia was looking for the phone within minutes of returning to the set. She had to get Rachel's opinion of Jon's behaviour. She picked up on the third ring. "Hello there, girlfriend," Rachel said, instantly recognising her voice. Sophia quickly retold what had happened with her and Jon. Rachel laughed when she had finished. "Girl, how did you expect him to act? You just told him you were moving in with one of the sexiest men on the planet, not to mention a total womaniser, he was hardly going to love that idea. I can see why Jon's worried." Sophia never considered jealously as the behaviour he was showing today. "Well Gerry won't be there much anyway and he should know me enough to know I'd never cheat on him especially not with someone like Gerry. He's just not my type and his womanising ways are such a turn off," Sophia protested. "Your one weird woman Sophia! I would be more than tempted sharing a place with that guy, what a body he has!" Rachel laughed. "You are one crazy lady," Sophia told her before hanging up the phone.
Jon had done the exact same thing when he got back to his car. He called Richie and arranged to meet him earlier than planned so he could get his view on things. Jon explained to him how he reacted and that he was worried about what could happen while he was on tour. Richie tried to convince him it was all in his head, there was no way Sophia would cheat on him. "She's a strong woman Jon, you should know that more than anyone, it was one of the things that drew you to her. If he tries anything on, you know she'll put him in his place. She loves you. Even I can see that but if it still gets to you, you should tell her about it. At least wait till you see her at the apartment in a few weeks before you have a full scale breakdown over this guy," Richie told him. Jon thought about it for a while and decided Richie was right, there is no need to worry about this, is there?
