Gemma and Vinny texted and FaceTimed as often as possible over the next few days. On Thursday, he texted her a message she never expected to get from him.
Vinny-What would you say to directing MIW's next video?
Vinny-Hahaha good. Details coming your way!
Gemma-One question. HOW did you get everyone to agree???
Vinny-I told you I'd see what I could do. You've given me probably a grand in donos and subscribers. I owe you, Spooky ;)
Gemma-This is arguably worth more than a grand.
Gemma was getting excited.
Vinny put her in contact with Chris and they discussed video concepts. She would be directing the video for Another Life.
The shoot day would be the following weekend and Gemma would be flown out to Scranton. Gemma was going to be staying with Vinny from Thursday to Tuesday when she left.
That week went by extremely slowly for Gemma. Finally, she boarded her flight to Scranton at nine-thirty PM on Thursday night. She would be landing in Scranton at eleven-thirty PM. Vinny and Ricky were going to pick her up from the airport. Ricky was there for moral support because Vinny was nervous to meet Gemma for the first time.
Vinny spotted her walking out to arrivals. She was wearing an army green bomber jacket with a black tee underneath and a pair of black skinny jeans with a rip in the left knee paired with white sneakers. She had a rolling suitcase and a large tote purse.
"Gemma!" Vinny got out of the car and waved her over.
She spotted him and smiled, walking over to her car as Ricky got out to greet her as well.
"Hi!" Gemma smiled at Vinny, hugging him.
"Hey, Gemma." He smiled, hugging her back for a long moment.
They let each other go.
"Hi Ricky, I'm Gemma." She introduced herself.
"Nice to meet you. I've heard lots about you." He smiled at her, shaking her hand.
"Good things I hope." Gemma looked at Vinny.
"Only the best," Vinny promised. "Here let me help you with your bags." He put them in his trunk.
They got in the car.
"So you're actually from Pennsylvania right?" Ricky asked Gemma.
"Yeah, I'm from Back Mountain."
"Oh okay. Jaime and I live in Sweet Valley." He told her.
"So we're basically neighbors when I'm not in Chicago, cool." She said.
"Are you hungry at all, Gemma?" Vinny asked.
"I'm starving actually."
"What do you want?" He asked.
"Literally anything. Sushi, chicken, pizza, tacos. I'm not picky." She told him.
"You've said sushi's your favorite, so sushi it is," Vinny said.
They got sushi to go and went back to Vinny's house. They talked while they ate.
"So how long have you lived in Chicago?" Ricky asked Gemma.
"Around three years."
"Do you like it there?" He asked.
"It's great. I'm not naturally a big city kinda girl, but I've learned. I never walk alone at night, I learned that was a big mistake very quick."
"Oh no, that sounds like a bad time," Vinny said.
"Yeah, this creep tried to follow me back to my apartment, but thankfully adrenaline kicked in. I kicked it into high gear and outran him. I was not trying to get mugged, murdered, or raped."
"Holy shit, Gemma," Vinny said.
"That's crazy," Ricky said. "I'd hate to be a woman."
"See the thing is, there are creepy men in cities and rural areas. My dad taught me how to fight when I was really young, in case I ever found myself in a bad situation. Be it fending off a creep or just regular fights, like in school or whatever. So while I might be little, I can still defend myself and hurt someone if I need to. Luckily I've never needed to." She shrugged.
"Fair enough." Ricky nodded. "At least your dad taught you that."
Gemma nodded. "For sure."
Once they finished eating, they all hung out for a bit and Ricky left about twenty minutes later.
"I've got my guest room all set up for you whenever you're ready for bed, by the way," Vinny told Gemma.
"Thanks again for letting me stay here." She said.
"No problem." Vinny smiled.
Gemma yawned. "About that bed."
Vinny chuckled. "I'll show you where it's at." He got her suitcase and bag and lead her into the guest room. "My room is two doors down if you need anything and the bathroom is direct across from you." He explained.
"Thanks, Vinny." She said.
"You're welcome. See ya tomorrow, Gemma." He left her to get settled.
Gemma took off her makeup and cleaned her face. She brushed and flossed her teeth and got changed into her pajamas, which was a black satin cami and a pair of shorts that said "baby ghoul" across her ass.
Once she realized the pajamas she had brought, she facepalmed and took a picture of her butt in the shorts, sending it to her group chat with her roommates:
Look at the shorts I brought to PA... *facepalm emoji*
Alana: HAHAHAHA I'm sure Vinny will love them!
Loryn: GET IT GEM
Sam: GO GET EM TIGER
Gemma: You guys are awful
Gemma quickly went across the hall to her bedroom for the next few days and plugged up her phone, getting under the covers.
The next day, Vinny and Gemma walked out of their bedrooms at the same time.
"Good morning Gemma." Vinny smiled at her.
"Good morning Vinny." She smiled.
She happily headed towards the bathroom and heard Vinny chuckle.
"Baby ghoul." He chuckled.
"Fuck, I forgot!" Gemma promptly hit her head against the door.
"Gemma!" He laughed, pulling her away from the door. "I love your shorts, okay? They look good on you, baby ghoul." He teased.
"Shut up." She gave him a playful shove and went into the bathroom, shutting the door behind herself.
He headed to the kitchen.
A few minutes later, Gemma left the bathroom and made her way into the kitchen where the rest of the band had manifested.
"Vinny! You couldn't have warned me!?" She laughed, half hiding behind a wall.
He chuckled. "I figured it was more fun this way. Come meet everyone."
"No, I'm gonna change!" She said, darting up the stairs.
"Don't!" He laughed.
She reemerged a few minutes later now wearing a black and white pinstriped bodysuit with a pair of black high-waisted jeans and an O ring belt. She had her hair up in a ponytail and makeup done.
"Return of the Spooky," Vinny said.
"Hey Spooky, thanks for the subs and donos." Ryan told her.
"You're welcome." She smiled at him. "You can call me Gemma in real life." She added.
"Gemma it is." He agreed.
"Nice to finally meet you, Gemma." Chris shook her hand.
"Nice to meet you, Chris." She smiled.
She shook Ryan and Justin's hands and said hello to them as well.
They worked out final details for the video and opened up the dress Gemma had made and shipped to Vinny's for the main actress Nina Kate.
"You made this?" Chris asked incredulously.
"Yeah, I did." She chewed on her lower lip. "Do you like it?"
"It's fucking amazing!" He said.
Gemma sighed in relief. "I'm so glad you like it." She said.
"So the plan is we're gonna shoot Nina Kate and Stitch D's part of the video today and just try and get as much done as possible. We can continue tomorrow if we need to. If not, we'll knock out the performance tomorrow." Chris said.
"Okay, sounds like a plan." Gemma nodded in understanding.
They all ate breakfast and went to the studio space that they would be filming at. The set decorators had done an amazing job.
Nina Kate and Stitch D had already gotten their hair and makeup done.
Gemma showed Nina Kate the dress.
"You made this?" She asked excitedly.
"Yeah, I did," Gemma confirmed. "Do you like it?"
"Girl, I love it." Nina Kate told her and gave her a hug.
"I got your measurements and I tailored it to fit you," Gemma told her.
"Well, then it should look amazing." She said.
"Do you need help putting it on?" Gemma asked.
"Probably." She admitted with a laugh.
Gemma laughed. "Okay, I got you."
Gemma helped Nina Kate into the dress and it fit her like a glove. They walked out of the dressing room together.
"Whoa, what a babe!" Stitch D said. "The dress looks stunning on you."
Nina Kate smiled. "Thank you."
They got all set up for the first shot and began filming at eight-thirty AM. They filmed all day and wrapped at six PM.
Everyone went back to Vinny's and Gemma imported the footage onto her computer. She used Vinny's HDMI cord to cast it to his living room TV and they all looked over the footage.
"I think we made a good choice picking you to film this, Gemma," Chris said.
"Is it what you wanted?" She asked hopefully.
"It's even better than what I imagined."
Gemma grinned and clapped. "Yay!"
"We should be able to knock out the performance in no time at all tomorrow." He said. "Especially with how efficient you are."
Vinny smiled at Gemma. "Great job, Spooky."
She smiled at him. "All the credit in the world to you for making it happen." She said.
"All I did was send them your reel and suggest you for the job. Your work speaks for itself." He told her.
Soon the rest of the band left and Vinny and Gemma were once again by themselves.
They sat on his couch talking for hours.
"Gemma?" Vinny asked.
"Vinny?" She asked.
"Will you be my girlfriend?" He asked.
She smiled. "I thought you'd never ask. Yes, I will."
He smiled and kissed her.
She kissed him back for a few moments.
Things got a bit heated after a few minutes of making out and heavy petting and they moved upstairs to his bedroom.
They shed each other of their clothes and he settled between her legs, eating her out like a fucking pro.
She came twice from his tongue and fingers.
Vinny got a condom out of his bedside drawer and put it on. He pushed into her and she moaned loudly. "Holy fuck."
"Gemma, you feel so good." He moaned.
He set a pace that worked for both of them and she came a third time about twenty minutes later. He kept going and she came a fourth time an hour later. He came a few seconds later and they rode out their highs. He slipped out of her and she whined slightly.
He took off the condom and tied it off, tossing it in the trash can before laying next to her.
She cuddled up to him.
He kissed her and she kissed him back for a moment before pulling away.
They fell asleep cuddling naked.
