Trisha had known Jeff all her life, she’s always supported him in his life, and they’ve both been great friends since childhood, she looks at him in a more brother kind of a way, and, when they were little so did he… But since the time passed, he grown other feelings for her…. She had been through his loving situations, and knew him pretty well…. She’d always been ok about his job, but hated to be in front of the cameras, she didn’t liked the way that world could mess in any way in her privacy, so she accepted his job, and was ok with it, but had never been around his filmig scenarios, or anything like that…
So when Jeff got the opportunity to make Jackass he immediatly told her about, and told her that it would be great, and that he would love for her to be around to experience it:
“Come on, you’ll love it Trisha” Jeff said.
“I don’t know… It’s not my idea of fun waching those things Jeff, and you know how much I hate to be around cameras, plus I don’t know anyone there, wouldn’t be a little strange??? I’ll feel awkward!!!!” Trisha replied
“No, no, it’ll be fun… I’ll be there with you the whole time, besides the guys are great, are fun, and you’ll have tons of fun once you get to know them…. Please, do it for me….” Jeff said… He had never let her know about his feelings for her, cause he was afraid to not get the answer he was hoping for, and the friendship to be damaged for ever. But this way, he was gonna spend time with her, and actually know if the feeling were corresponded, and to go from there.
“Jeff, I’m trying to support you in every way that I can, you know that, but that’s just not my world… What about my studies—” Trisha said
“You can totally study there, and it’s not like you have to stay there through every single bit… I just would like to see you there from time to time… I’m a bit nervous, it’s a big opportunity and I don’t wanna blow it up… It’ll be nice if someone of my total confidence would be there from me, telling me that I’m doing things right… I need your support in this… Come on, don’t make me beg, you know I hate it… Please..” Jeff said.
“Fine, Jeff…. I’ll be there to support you, but as long as I can, I mean, you know I’ve got to study, and ——” Trisha said
“Yeah yeah, don’t worry, I get that… But you’ll be there??? At least once a day???” Jeff asked
“Yes I’ll be ther at least once a day to support you, I promise” She said as she hugged him, “But with one condition, if I’m on tv, at least once, the deal is off and I’ll never go there again!!! You can film me as much as you want, but never show it on tv!!!! Promise me Jeff!!!”
“It’s ok, I promise!!!! Don’t worry… It’ll be great, you’ll love it…. Tomorrow you’ll meet the guys, they’re great” Jeff said
His plan had worked, he has managed to convince her to go to every single shoot… But he hadn’t talked to any of the guys about her, and there was no chance he could do it that day… He was a little worried about the fact that he had a girlfriend already, a pretty serious girlfriend, who the guys had met, but Trisha didn’t know anything about… He was worried that they might screw things up by talking about his girlfriend, or worst, that Trisha might fall for one of the guys!!!!
So that day he talked to her about all the things he had planed for them, and how much he wanted this to work out, because inspite of Big Brother magazine, he still thought that this was a really great project, and he was sure this was his big break, and it’ll get him to be known worldwide…. He always tried to spend as much time as he could with her, though his schedule was terrible, and he never had time for anything… Worst for having a girlfriend, and a Trisha… He had thougth many times about leaving his girlfriend, but he didn’t know if Trisha was in love with him, and he did care for his girlfriend a lot, so he chose to stay with his girl until Trisha would be a sure thing… But to do that he needed to get her to be in his job, with him, so they could spend more time, and she managed to fall in love with him, if she already wasn’t!!!!!
So the day to meet the guys came, she was a little nervous not to be liked, but she remained strong for Jeff, after all she had promised it, and she has never failed a promise…. The first guy she met was Johnny….
“Hey Knoxville, this is a friend of mine, her name is Trisha, she’s gonna be near us shooting…. Trisha this is Johnny Knoxville, I told you about him, this is the guy that shot himself in the chest!!!!” Jeff knew that they needed to get a good start, so he was as polite and nice about each other as he could be…..
“Hi, since Jeff did already the introductions, I guess I don’t have to say my name again… But what, are you some kind of producer, or why are you actually here???” Johnny was curious and worried because Jeff failed to mention her part in everything….
Trisha just stared at him with an anger look for him being rude enough to question her intentions towards Jeff… “I’m here supporting Jeff, why, is there a problem with that???” She said..
“Yeah man, I asked her to come, it was really hard for her to get here…” Jeff tried to fixed the situation, but he was actually relieved, cause she just had a bad impresion of Knoxville, who was his biggest concern, because of his looks and flirtyness….
“No, no, I didn’t mean to be impolite, or sound judgmental, sorry, I was just curious” Johnny said
“Yeah… Well Trisha, soon Steve-O and Chris will come and you’ll get to know them…. And tomorrow you’ll meet Bam and the rest of the guys…. Oh there are Steve-O and Pontius, let’s say hi” Jeff quickly managed to change the topic and take her away from there, so that it wouldn’t be a completely disaster her meeting Knoxville “Hey guys, this is Trisha, she’s a friend of mine, she’s gonna be around us”
“Hey, nice to meet you, I’m Chris!!! You just let me know anything this guy does to you, and I’ll kick his ass princess” Pontius said
“No no, Chris” Jeff said “Just call her Trisha, no princess things or anything”
Trisha just laughed… Jeff was pleased she liked Chris and Steve-O
“Yeah yeah, you just tell us, and we’ll give him what he deserves..” Steve-O said….
Jeff was called by the MTV producers about what he was gonna do.
“Knoxville, are you gonna come???”
“No, no, you go ahead, and you fill me in when you come back, I hate those dumass meeting that never say anything important… I’ll join the guys and Trisha in the mean time” Johnny said
“Ok, Trisha you call me if anything happens and I’ll be right back….” Jeff said laughing so that it wouldn’t be that obvious how jealous he felt about leaving her…..
“Hahaha, sure, then I’ll give you a call in about five minutes I guess” She said laughing…
Johnny brought a seat to her, and he was curious about her… He was surprised that she hadn’t even payed attention to him, and he was worried about starting with the wrong foot with her…
“So, you can be honest with us, are you and Jeff anything??? Are you his sweetheart???” Johnny said
“Yeah yeah, is there anything going on between you two’???? Or are you available???” Steve-O said
“No, no, we’re just friends guys…” She laughed
“But have you ever been anything??? Or just entirely friends??? How long have you known each other?” Johnny asked
“No, just friends, never anything else, he’s like a brother with me…. We’ve known each other since childhood” She felt a little uncomfortable by the question, and she didn’t like Johnny that much, she couldn’t forget that stupid comment he made when they first met… She thought, man what a jerk….
“Wow, Jeff’s a coward! How could he have never made a move? Damn, I was so sure you were something!! I mean he’s like overprotecting you so far… Just like a stalker, hahahaha!!!!!! SO, you’re totally available, right??” Chris said in a flirty kind of a way, but also laughing… Trisha just smiled back, and didn’t say anything…
“No, how he could be have anything with her when he’s already with someone else!!!!!” Johnny said…
“What? He never told me that!” Trisha said laughing..
“You didn’t know??? Boy, did I mess things up??? HAHAHHAHA”He just gave a big laugh… And felt kinda bad… He didn’t meant to give the secret away, but he assumed she knew something since they were such great friends… He also wanted to know Jeff’s intention towards her…. “Jeff is gonna kill me!!!!!” he said
“Why would he??? There’s nothing bad about him dating, it’s just a little weird that he hasn’t said anything about it to me….” Trisha said
Jeff got out of the meeting as soon as he could…. He was walking toward Trisha and Johnny just started laughing….
“What’s so funny Knoxville???” Jeff wondered what had happened since he was gone, but he didn’t want to be so obvious about it…
“Nothing man, we were just telling jokes, right guys??? Right Trisha???” Johnny wanted to see how much she would back him up… She knew she was gonna ask about Jeff’s girlfriend, but he just wanted to know if she was up to messing up with Jeff’s head a little bit…
“Yes, we were telling jokes Jeff, it’s just that Chris and Steve-O doesn’t have a good sense of humor” Trisha just played along…. She decided to give Johnny a second chance… Jeff had always talked great about him, and he seemed like a nice guy, in spite of the first impression…..
“Trisha, can I talk to you????” Jeff said
“Oh boy, you’re in trouble Trisha!!!!” Johnny said, nervously laughing, for what he had just told Trisha!!!!! He was worried Jeff might take it the wrong way… Trisha just laughed…
He walked with her, and Knoxville followed them around, so that his secret wasn’t totally exposed, and if it was, for him to cool Jeff down… He actually found it funny how things managed to turn into, and he wanted to keep playing with Jeff’s head….
“Do you like the guys??? Do you feel comfortable???? Are things ok with Johnny now???” Jeff asked, but he was more interested in the first question, he wanted to know if she had a crush on any of the guys!!!
“Yeah, the guys are great, they’re very funny… I like them, you were right, they’re cool… And everything is fine with Johnny, I gotta admit that his first comment pissed me off, but he’s actually a nice guy…. He’s funny too… Everything is ok with him now, don’t worry…. I’m fine” Trisha wanted to give Jeff the support and confidence that she wasn’t leaving… She was very curious about his girlfriend, but she knew it wasn’t the proper time to bring it up, Jeff needed her support right now, not her curiosity….
Knoxville interrupted the conversation by saying “You wouldn’t believe what the guys told Trisha!!!! They told her about Laura….”
Jeff’s eyes just went wide, and he stopped smiling, he just said “What???”
“Yeah, right Trisha??? But it was totally not their intention!!!! They thought that she knew… After all, she’s been your long time friend…” Knoxville said it laughing to cool Jeff down
“Yes, it was a little weird, but since we haven’t been able to catch up so much lately I totally understand it… Uff, he’s just been so busy lately!!!!” Trisha said, to show Jeff that she wasn’t mad about it.
“Sorry Trisha, yeah, I have a girlfriend, it’s just I haven’t got the time, but I know you understand… Sorry!” Jeff was more worried about Trisha feeling betrayed than about the guys comment, he knew that it wasn’t the guys fault, since he had never even told them about Trisha before….
“It’s ok Jeff, seriously don’t worry!!!” Trisha said to calm him down…
“No no no no, we simply just can’t forgive you” Knoxville hugged Trisha, and took her away, laughing…. She just laughed, and liked the way Knoxville had told things to Jeff, so that it wouldn’t be awkard when he asked….. She wondered why he had blamed Steve-O and Chris, but she just let it pass… It was her first day and she didn’t wanna make any problems….
Jeff went out to check tomorrows schedule for the guys, and he left Trisha and Knoxville getting to know better… He knew that they had to get allong in order for her to stay on set, and to want to come everyday!!
“You must be wondering why I blamed Chris and Steve-O and didn’t tell him it was me???” He said, as she just stared at him “Well it’s because we know Jeff already, and we love to prank him, it’s nothing bad, we love to get through his head, when any of us do something, we always blame each other, and I knew how to cool Jeff down, if he wasn’t mad at me….. But if he would be mad at me, then the guys wouldn’t of been able to calm him down…..”
“It’s ok, you don’t have to give me any explanations, I don’t know you guys that much, and the problems that you work out with him are in a different way in which I do, so I get, it’s ok!!!!! As long as you don’t bring me to them, it’s ok….” She said
“We haven’t got off with the greatest start, huh???? Sorry about how we started!!!! The day is practically over, and I wouldn’t want the awkardness to remain, could we make as if I hadn’t said that??? Though I didn’t meant it in a bad way” he said
“We both know the way you meant it!!!!! Sorry, but we could both say that it never happen, but it did!!!! What we can do is grow from it, and move on, and still be friends….. At least we have a memorable start!!!!” She said!!!!
“I’d like that!!!!” He said as he hugged her to make peace with her…. She was different from the girls he had known before… She was direct, smart, funny, but also serious… She had intrigued him…
“Ok, gotta go, Jeff’s waiting.. Nice too meet you Johnny!!!!! Really, bye!!!!!”
She walked over to Jeff, as Jeff was telling the boys what they were doing tomorrow, and how he couldn’t be there cause he was meeting Bam, and that Knoxville was in charge!!!!!
“So, what did you talk about with Johnny at the end??? He was the one who told you about Laura, right???”Jeff asked while they where in the car.
“No, we just cleared things up… We just decided to move on from that bad start and get to know each other better before judging each other…” She said…
“You didn’t answer the question about Laura!!!! Did he——”
“Is it really that important??? Just let it go….” She tried to cover Knoxville as far as she could…. She didn’t know how would Jeff react, if he felt she was lying to him, and she tried to change the subject a little ”Tell me about her??? And what else are we doing tomorrow????”
“No, she’s just, I don’t know… We’re meeting Bam, tomorrow, he’s doing so footage to CKY, and I would like it to be on Jackass!!!!” Jeff said…
“Ok, cool, so when do you start shooting with the other guys??? Tomorrow??”
“No, no, next week, we’re getting everything ready and the crew to know everyone before shooting, also MTV won’t let us shoot yet… There’s still a lot of paperwork and stuff….”
The next day she met Bam, Ryan and Brandon, and Bam’s parents… They also got back to the set, and she met Ehren and Dave… And she seemed to hit it off with everyone, so Jeff was glad that she felt comfortable, and that it wasn’t gonna be weird for her to be around them… And even if he wouldn’t be with her, she would still be entertained by one of the guys!!!!!
Ending Chapter 1
