Chapter 3: The Moment of Truth
After a long couple of minutes Don spoke up.
"So Jo, what are we going to do about this... us?"
Jo shrugs, "I don't know Don, but I'm game for anything really."
"I don't think we should get together and start dating."
"Why not?" Jo asked, curious.
"Because well, to be honest, I have this vibe that you still have feelings for Mac. You just broke up with the guy a month ago, I doubt jumping into another relationship so fast, is such a good idea really."
Jo just nodded, "Yeah, you're probably right."
"But believe me Jo, I want you so bad, but it's just... complicated."
"I understand Don, we really shouldn't rush into anything," Jo rubbed his arm. "So, just friends?"
"Just friends," Don nodded, kissing her cheek. "Things aren't going to be awkward for us now at work, are they?"
"I highly doubt that, just because we know we like each other it won't change anything."
"But what if we are in the same room as Mac?" Don asked, rubbing his hands on his pants again.
"Don, are you jealous of my relationship with Mac?"
"Jo, if there's one thing I never am is jealous. But now that I know you like me, whenever you are just talking to Mac I guess I don't want to do anything to cause problems with Mac."
"Flack, there is nothing you have to worry about, I promise you. If you don't let these little things get to you, you really have nothing to worry about. Mac could be on his hands and knees begging to get back together with me, but I'm not going to say yes. And you know why?"
Don shook his head, "Why?" he asked, almost too softly.
"Because me and Mac want completely different things than each other. You know, he almost proposed to me, but I got frightened well because me and marriage doesn't work out. And then it got to me that, if I want to spend the rest of my life with Mac, it will only be as friends, because if there's one thing I know is that I like you too much."
"So you um... left Mac because you have feelings for me? Jo how could you do this to him?" Don felt some anger approaching.
"I did it for you Don."
"Why Jo? Do you not know how many heart breaks he went through in his life, losing his first wife, his first real girlfriend after that left him to go back to her country, and then Stella leaves for New Orleans, and now when he finds someone he wants to spend the rest of his life with, you turn him down, because of me. Mac doesn't even know the real reason you left him, does he?"
Jo shook her head, "No, because my feelings for you were unexpected, then I find myself having sleepless nights because I broke up with an amazing man. I do regret leaving him because I gained feelings for you, but I don't regret having these feelings," Jo sighed, and Don looked at her with a frown.
"Sorry Jo," he wrapped an arm around her shoulders.
"I'm sorry too Don, for putting you in this awkward position."
"No you didn't I really shouldn't have brought Mac into this. Plus it's better I found this out before we actually started dating, because if I found out then I would feel like the bad guy for letting it happen."
"Don Flack, you could never be the bad guy."
"I would hope not. I like you a lot Jo, and I hope that when we do start dating it will be the best time of my life. I'm glad we had this talk Jo."
"Me too Flack," she kissed his neck softly and snuggled into him. Don looked down at the woman next to him and kissed the top of her head. Then they watched tv until their dinner arrived.
The next day came quicker than Jo planned, her neighbor was watching Ellie, as she went into work.
She saw Mac asleep at his desk, "Of course he fell asleep here," she entered his office, and rubbed his back. "Wake up Mr. Sleepy Head."
He lifted his head up and smiled, "Oh, hey Jo, you're here early."
"Yeah, because almost 9 o' clock is early. Did you fall asleep at your desk again? That's been happening a lot lately Mac."
"I don't like sleeping in my bed alone anymore," he looked at her with sad eyes.
"Come on Mac, don't give me that look."
"I can't just forget that you denied my proposal."
"Mac, that was a month ago, you can't be doing this to yourself."
"Oh, it's what I'm good at. Look Jo, things have been different between us, and that's probably because I thought you were the one for me, but yet again I was wrong."
"Mac, look I'm sorry."
"Yeah, you keep on telling me this, I really thought that I could count on you."
"You are not going to make me feel guilty for my mistake. I really thought you actually meant what you said, that proposing to me was a stupid idea on your part, but it's pretty obvious you still have these feelings for me. So why did you try hiding that from me. I thought we were closer than this Mac."
"Yeah, we were, until you broke my heart."
"I still want to be friends with you Mac, I know you want the same thing."
"I don't know what I want anymore Jo, but when I find out, I'll be sure to let you know."
Jo nodded quietly and walked out of the office, but before she was all the way gone, she turned back around. "I think Mac, what you really need is Stella back in your life, maybe, just a suggestion, that will turn things around," she sighed and walked away into her office.
