Author's Note: This is only chapter 1. I haven't come up with the other chapters yet. What can I say? Everybody else was doing Original Characters on Jonas Brothers Fanfiction Archive, so I had to give at least one story with one as well. Okay, so I got the inspiration for this Fic while reading the topic "Fantasy Land" on the Games part of the JB Fanfic Archive Forum.

Chapter 1: Do I have to hear what I don’t want to hear NOW?!
It was several days after the Jonas Brothers had gotten home from yet another tour.
“Man,” says Kevin. “Being famous is so tough.”
“Yeah duh,” said Joe. “But it’s so fun too.” He smiled.
“Joe do you still have a crush on-” Kevin started.
“Taylor?” Nick asked. “Dude, how many times do Joe and I have to tell you he’s DONE with Taylor.”
“I’m going to my room,” Joe said, grabbing what he was working on and going upstairs.
“Joe,” Nick started.
Joe sighed, sitting on the bed in his room.
“Joe?” Demi asked.
“Hi Demi,” he said. “Demi. Wha-what are you doing in my room?!”
Demi laughed. “Silly Joe. Don’t you remember? It’s not really me, I’m just part of your imagination. The real me’s still at my house.”
Joe laughed. “Oh, yeah.”
Ever since the end of Camp Rock, Joe had started having hallucinations where Demi was in his room every day when he needed somebody to talk to. Even though this wasn’t actually the real her, she was sometimes like his conscience when he couldn’t decide what to do.
“So, what’s wrong now?” Imaginary Demi asked.
“What do you mean?”
“Come on Joe, you and I both know that pretty much the only time you imagine me in your room, you have something to talk about that you don’t want to talk to your brothers about.”
“Okay fine.” Joe looked around, making sure nobody was around. “I want to tell you the truth.”
“Are you referring to this me or the real me?”
“The real you.”
“And what truth would that be?” The Imaginary Demi said, sitting down on the end of his bed, looking like she was ready to listen to a long story.
Joe laughed. “Don’t worry, it’s not that long. The truth that… I dream of you and I ‘wearing the red pants’.” He winked at her.
“Ah, I see,” the Imaginary Demi said.
Joe had made up this thing where when he said ‘wearing the red pants’ it was really code for ‘you and me together, dating.’ It was just incase anybody was listening and he didn’t see them.
Suddenly, Nick appeared in the door and the Imaginary Demi disappeared.
“Hey Joe,” Nick said, looking into the room. “Can I come in?”
“Sure,” Joe said with a slight sad smile.
Nick walked in to the room. “I know your secret.”
“Which one?” Joe asked.
Nick sat down on the bed beside him. “That you like Demi.”
“No, Demi and I are just-”
Nick stopped him. “Don’t even say it.” He grabbed Joe’s guitar and started playing. “There she goes again. The one you’re in love with. It’s cool you’re just friends… you don’t want to lead her on.”
“Oh no, no,” Joe said.
“No,” Nick sang. “But the truth is you’ve grown fond. Yeah. Everyone knows it’s meant to be. Falling in love, just you and Demi.”
“Seriously Nick, stop,” Joe said. But Nick ignored him.
“’Til the end of time,” Nick sang. “’Til you’re on her mind. It’ll happen…”
Joe took the guitar out of Nick’s hands. “Okay, seriously, stop.”
Nick rolled over laughing. Then sat up straight. “Dude it’s okay, Selena and I are ‘just friends’ too.” He winked.
“Okay fine,” Joe said. “I like her. You happy now?”
Nick sighed. There was a secret the others knew that Joe didn’t. “Look Joe, there’s something I have to tell you that you’re probably not going to want to hear.”
“Do I have to hear it now?” Joe asked. “I’ve gotta go talk to Demi.” He got off his bed and started going downstairs.
Nick stayed on the bed and sighed. “I tried.” He picked up the guitar and started singing his re-written version of Just Friends again. “You’ve been making lots of plans. Like a picket fence and a rose garden. Just keep on dreaming. It’s cool cause you’re just friends.”
Joe went downstairs, not stopping for anything. “I’m going to Demi’s house for five minutes.”
“It’s okay Joe,” he heard Demi’s voice said. “I’m right here.”
No, Joe thought to himself. It’s just her voice in my head again. Then he turned around. She really was there. “Oh, hi Demi. It’s you.”
“Yep, this is me,” Demi said. She then laughed.
Joe laughed too. “Demi, I have to tell you something.”
“What?” Demi asked. She thought to herself, Eee. Does he like me too? Has he figured out he’s my real celebrity crush? She smiled. No, no, Demi, don’t think that. He’s probably just going to wish me a happy three-day early birthday.
“Joe,” Joe’s mother said.
“What is it mom?” Joe asked, slightly irritated.
“I have to tell you something you probably don’t want to hear,” she said.
“Do I have to hear it now?” He complained. “Wow, seems like this has happened already.”
“Yes, you do. We’ve been hiding it from you for ten years.”
Joe didn’t pay attention to her. Instead, he focused on Demi. “Demi, I’ve gotta tell you the truth. I-”
“Joe,” his mother said.
“Joe, you are getting married!”
Demi spit out the food she had been eating, and put on a shocked face. Joe drank some water then spit it out and put on the same face as well. Then, they both looked at each other, then back at Joe’s mom. “WHAT did you just say?!!!!!!”
