Lucarly: A friend of mine said I should try to do a 50-sentence fic, so here I am, giving it a shot.
Aki: You should be working on your requests.
Lucarly: Yeah. . .No. I will, I promise.
Aki: That's a lie, isn't it?
Lucarly: NO. . .I don't own Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's.
He was sweaty, bloody, and tired that first night he met her at Public Security Maintenance Bureau.
The tingle they noticed inside their hearts indicated that they found each other attractive, though both tried to brush it off as quickly as possible.
After being lonely for most of his life, it was admittedly nice to have her constant companionship; at least, it was for the first day or so.
Mikage rarely ever slipped-up and called him "Jack" without any honorific.
And when she did, Jack couldn't help but think it was cute how she fumbled to cover up her mistake.
Although it wasn't mandatory, Mikage never failed to watch him duel from the stands, silently cheering him on.
Jack went against people's orders just to spite them, and Mikage was no different.
Since Jack tended to ignore her warnings, Mikage always ended up lying and making up excuses for him, even if it meant forgoing her standard morals and risking her own well-being.
Jack wrote off the bruises on her neck as the marks of an unknown lover, but the feeling that they weren't remained.
There was no person who made her cry more than Jack Atlas; because for once, she cried for both her own pain and his pain.
Mikage was an early-to-bed, early-to-rise person, but she forced herself to stay up into the late hours of the night when Jack needed comforting.
She was an easy target because she would let him scream at her for hours on end without so much as saying a single word.
Jack tried to rub off the inkling of guilt that came after blowing up on her, but he was never successful.
Mikage was floored by how gentle and uncharacteristically kind he was to her as he tended to the wound in her foot.
Mikage had never been more heartbroken in her life when she found out Jack loved another woman; which was when she realized that she loved him too.
She had been so close to telling him, but he was quick to stop her, fearing the consequences of knowing her true feelings.
Jack learned that Mikage could not hold alcohol down very well after she nearly kissed him when her co-workers had spiked her drink.
Jack occasionally had to remind himself that he had someone else waiting for him, but Mikage's honey irises made his heart stop every time he saw them.
It was amongst the fallen paperwork that they almost shared another kiss; except, this time it was Jack who tried to initiate it.
Mikage was the first one to be there after his girlfriend broke up with him; the reason, however, remained unclear to him.
It was actually Aki who let it slip to Jack that Mikage wanted to be more personal with him.
Normally, Jack was the king at keeping a handle over his own romantic jealousy; still, something inside him burned when he saw Mikage and Ushio working side-by-side.
Jack was known for having a thing for girls with glasses, which is why he struggled so much on the days Mikage forgot her contacts.
Mikage hadn't meant to brush her hand against his, but she was glad she did after he took it.
He hated her when he met her, but he hated her more when he knew he was in love with her.
The height difference was substantial, but it didn't stop them from finally kissing for the first time.
Jack, being the stubborn man he is, needed to be kissed a second time before finally agreeing to date her.
They tried to keep their relationship a secret; unfortunately, both were terrible at keeping secrets.
Watching the sun fall over the horizon had become a ritual of his, and Mikage was the first one ever be invited to join him.
Since Jack didn't know his real mother, it was actually Mikage who taught him how to dance; but he wouldn't have had it any other way.
Jack returned her the favor by teaching her how to skip rocks across the lake one warm, cloudy Sunday afternoon.
Mikage was one of the very few people he wasn't with for the sex.
But she gave it up to him anyway.
Although it took awhile to admit, Jack had to face the fact that he was dating a woman who was a whole lot smarter than he was.
He wasn't afraid to pull dangerous stunts or run into life-threatening situations, but telling her he loved her was absolutely terrifying.
Jack never actually asked her to marry him; he just slipped on the ring and left.
All of their friends were surprised when they found out they were planning a wedding, but they still ended up eloping.
Unpacking for their apartment would normally only take three days, but with all the kisses they shared and love they made in between, it took nearly double that time.
Jack, like Yusei, never really was a man of many words, but the newlyweds could spend hours just talking as they slowly drifted off to sleep on the sofa.
Mikage was a fantastic cook, although Jack's horrible pride wouldn't allow him to admit it.
Jack was used to being to dominant one in the relationship, but he quickly learned that she could win just about any argument as long as it ended in bed.
Jack, in all his manly eloquence, stared at Mikage with a completely dumbfounded look on his face after she told him she was pregnant.
Just as he began to like the idea of being a father, fate took a cruel turn and Mikage had a miscarriage.
She demanded that they get pregnant again afterwards; but Jack had to shake his head and tell her that it would be awhile before he would be ready again.
The fight they had was absolutely dreadful, but the chaste kiss they shared afterwards filled them with the most bittersweet feeling of hope either had ever felt.
He one day just showed up with a kitten in his arms, his gift of appeasement to her.
Mikage wasn't sure whether she should laugh or cry when the second pregnancy test was positive.
After telling him she was pregnant again, he drove her far out of the city simply so they could stargaze away from the thousands of bright lights that dimmed the brilliance of the night sky.
Even at 9 months pregnant, he could still pick her up and carry her upstairs with relative ease.
Mikage could swear that she saw Jack's eyes glaze over with water the first time he saw his daughter, but he vehemently denied it after she playfully inquired about it.
Lucarly: If you haven't noticed, this fic pays a lot of homage to most of my older MiJack fics. (Which I'm sure none of you actually care about.) It also gives you a few ideas on some of my future stories.
Aki: Oh look at you, so very symbollic.
Lucarly: I do not enjoy your sarcasm. Reviews are love. So if you love me, review. If you don't love me, review anyway.
