Is Your Bedroom Ceiling Bored

Work Text:

Once the Bellas had won Worlds, they decided to go to a nearby bar to celebrate together. But Beca had different plans. Instead of going with her friends, she was going to stay in the hotel room she shared with Stacie. The tall brunette had let Chloe room with Aubrey so they could catch up and so Beca didn't have to room with the blonde. She knew the small dj would feel awkward sharing a room with her ex.

There was a knock on the door. Beca got hopped off her bed to answer the door. 

"Hey, looking good guys." she said to Aubrey and Chloe once she opened the door. The two were dressed quite nicely. The redhead was wearing a gray blazer with a white crop top underneath and some dress pants. The blonde was wearing a black and white dress stopping little bit above her knees. Beca cleared her throat and averted her gaze at something in the room knowing she was looking at Aubrey for too long. She gestured for the two to come in. 

"You're not dressed yet." Aubrey pointed out. The second Beca had gotten to the hotel room after their performance, she changed into some sweatpants and a barden hoodie. Aubrey studied the hoodie. It looked like the one she lost before leaving barden. Aubrey decided not to speak up about it. 

"Yeah I know. I'm not going with you guys. I've got something to do. Maybe next time." Beca said and shrugged. She walk to her bag and grabbed her laptop a mini keyboard she used for mixing.
Stacie walked out the washroom dressed and makeup finish. 

"You sure you don't wanna come with us Becs?" she said as she put some things into her purse. Beca only shakes her head no. 

"Stay safe guys. If anything happens you can call me." Beca said escorting the three out the door.

~~~~~~

It is now 20 minutes before midnight. Beca is still up working on a song. She's only got two verses written. The brunette started on working on composing the music part. Currently she is having a little snack while watching some random video on YouTube.

At the bar the rest of the Bellas partied pretty hard. They sung along to the songs that the DJ played at the top of their lungs. Who knows maybe some of them will wake up in the morning with a raspy voice. I guess you can say they were pretty drunk. Some were wasted. Other than four Bellas that is. Stacie, Chloe, Aubrey, and Emily. The younger brunette wasn't of age to drink yet but she still partied. As for other three, they wanted to be sober if anything did happen.

Beca had gone back to working on her song. The lyrics were finish. As she re-read them.

"Hmm something doesn't seem right." Beca said quietly as if someone could hear her. She tried singing them aloud with the background music playing through her headphones quiet enough to hear herself sing.

She pause the sound track and took her headphones off. Beca leaned back onto the bed she was sitting on and let out a groan. There was a knock on the door. In the brunette's mind it seemed too early for the girls to be back. She go up and answered the door after hearing the knocking sound again. Opening the door there stood a blonde.

"It took you long enough."

"Oh? Aubrey? What are you doing here?" Beca said with a tone surprised to see the older girl.

"Just uh,, checking on you. I'm gonna head back to my hotel rooms now. See you in the morning." Aubrey said then turned to walk to her room.

"Wait!" Beca exclaimed, "You can erm,, stay here until Chloe and Stacie are back. I-I could use the company." she lowered her voice.

Aubrey smiled at the smaller girl, "Sure. I'll just change into something more comfortable." Beca nodded. She stood at her doorway waiting for the blonde to return.

~~~~~

"So what were you doing before I got here." Aubrey said after taking a seat on one of the beds.

"Nothing important really. Just playing around with a song." Beca says fidgeting with her fingers.

"Can I hear it?" the brunette hesitated. Now or never Mitchell, she told herself.

"I- You know what? Sure." Beca went to get her laptop. Opening to the file with her recorded work, she set the device between her and her friend. " Uh there's something missing in it. Not sure what but uh yea." Aubrey just nodded. She was eager to hear what Beca had written.  The DJ pressed play after taking a deep breath.

"I stay up late and I talk to the moon I can't stop telling him all about you

Wonder if you do the same thing I do

These four white walls they know more than my friends

They watch me type messages I'll never send

This is the place that I just can't pretend to be alright

 

Is your bedroom ceiling bored like mine?

Of you staring at it all the time

Cos it's seen so many nights where I cry and yell at the sky for not telling you how I feel

Is your bedroom ceiling bored like mine?"

 

Beca fidgeted with her fingers nervously as the song played. She hoped to get a good reaction out of the blonde. 

 

"I get up early and talk to the sun

Ask her for guidance but she ain't got none

How am I supposed to know you're not the one?

 

I'm begging to the mirror

Cos I can't find an answer

Too busy falling apart and I wonder if

You're moving on yeah

If you are what's your secret

Cos I can't work out where to start

 

Is your bedroom ceiling bored like mine?

Of you staring at it all the time

Cos it's seen so many nights where I cry and yell at the sky for not telling you how I feel

Is your bedroom ceiling bored like mine?"

 

The blonde can't help but get lost in the singers voice. She couldn't resist falling more in love with the brunette. Aubrey slightly rocks to the rhythm of the song as the listens carefully to the lyrics.

 

"I stay up late and I talk to the moon I can't stop telling him all about you

Wonder if you do the same thing I do I hope you do

 

Is your bedroom ceiling bored like mine?

Of you staring at it all the time

Cos it's seen so many nights where I cry and yell at the sky for not telling you how I feel

Is your bedroom ceiling bored Is your bedroom ceiling bored like mine?"

 

Once the song ended Beca opened a new page. On it was the lyrics. Aubrey looked at her in confusion.

"Whatcha think?" Beca said turning back to the older girl. 

"It was wonderful Bec." Aubrey said with a small smile planted on her lips. She points to the screen, "Those are the full lyrics?" the blonde asks. Beca nods and nudges the device closer to the other girl. Aubrey read through the lyrics. "Hmm.. you're missing something."

"Yeah... can't put my finger on it though."

"You can change the bridge a little then have another person sing it."

"Huh?"

"For the second verse, get someone to sing it. Preferably someone with a higher pitch. Then add something to the bridge. And sing the chorus' together." Beca thought about it. Could be a good idea.  She thought. "Here" Aubrey started to type onto the document. She then turned the laptop around.  The brunette read over the lyrics. Makes sense. Shit I need to make a demo before I finalize it, but Emily is busy- wait I could just get Aubrey to sing the other part. Oh no, this is gonna me really cliche. Beca contemplated.

"It- yeah that... works pretty well. I- can you... unless you don't want to. Could you maybe like-"

"Sing with you?" Aubrey finished.

"Yeah, sing with me." Beca said quietly, Aubrey almost missed it. She went back to the track and muted her lyrics. They sung the edited version. Their voices meshed together perfectly like pieces of a puzzle.

[Beca] [Aubrey] [Together]

"I stay up late and I talk to the moon
And I can't stop telling him all about you
Wonder if you do the same thing I do

I get up early and talk to the sun
I ask her for guidance but she ain't got none
Wonder if you do the same thing I do

I hope you do

Is your bedroom ceiling bored like mine
Of you staring at it all the time?
'Cause it's seen so many nights where I cry and I yell at the sky
For not telling you how I feel

Is your bedroom ceiling bored?
Is your bedroom ceiling bored
Like mine?"

The two were looking into each others eyes. No words were spoken. Beca lunged forward causing Aubrey to lay down whilst pulling her into a hug. The blonde pulled the smaller girl impossibly closer to her. They laid in silence. Aubrey noticed how Beca's heartbeat steadied, the ex-captain smiled knowing the small girl had fallen asleep. She planted a soft kiss on the girl's head before falling asleep herself with a smile on her face.

~~~~~

Chloe and Stacie made their final stop at Emily's room. They made sure all the girls were safe in their hotel rooms before retreating to their own. 

"You think they talked?" Chloe spoke as the neared Stacie's and Beca's room.

"Probably just briefly." Stacie said pulling out the key. As she unlocked the door she saw that the lights were still on. "Maybe Beca's still up doing her mixes. Breakfast in the morning?"

"Of course. Good night, I love you."

"I love you too." Stacie said and walked into the room after giving her girlfriend a kiss. She closed the door and took her heels off. Stacie smile at the sight before her. Her two friends sleeping incredibly close to each other. She whipped out her phone and took a quick photo then texted Chloe.

S: Get ur cute butt over here. U gotta see this.

C: oh yeah for sure <3

Within seconds Chloe was at the door. She was let in and almost squealed at the sight. The couple went to lay down on Stacie's bed.

"So much for a brief talk. I wonder what else they did." Stacie said. They heard shuffling from the bed. They turned to look, seeing Beca had flipped the finger at them.

"Shut up I wanna sleep." the sleepy brunette muttered.

"Good night to you too Becs." Chloe said before turning off the lights. All four girls were asleep with smiles on their faces.
