Chapter Seventeen: Home at Last
Jayden stood still for a moment, contemplating what to say. It was hard for him to talk about his feelings to others, especially when it involved his feelings about Emily.
Since his father had died, it had only been him and Ji. Because Ji wasn't a very emotional man, Jayden had never really needed to talk about his feelings. But since the other samurai started living with him, he had been more open, but barely.
So for Jayden it was extremely uncomfortable to talk about how he was jealous of Mike because of Emily. It wasn't only uncomfortable, it was awkward. The hardest part was that Jayden didn't know how to explain why he was jealous. He just was.
So, Jayden decided to wing it, "I was jealous because…"
Jayden paused, so Emily decided to speak up, "Because why?"
"Well, because.." Jayden started, shaking nervously, "because I guess I was jealous of how you always spend time with Mike. I was jealous because I know that you used to like Mike, and I know that Mike used to like you too. I guess I was just so scared that you would leave me, that I kind of freaked out. And then Mike was the one to save you from Dekker, that didn't help. I was jealous and scared that you would be all, 'My hero!' and then fall in love with Mike and you two would live happily ever after. That's what always happens in the movies anyways. I'm sorry Em. I was just so worried that I would lose you. I was so worried that I guess I kind of over reacted." Jayden finished sadly.
Jayden stood there, staring at the ground, waiting for a response from Emily. Or from anyone. At this point Jayden just wanted the awkward silence to be over. It was not helping his nerves.
"I forgive you." Emily finally said.
"Really? Thank god." Jayden said, feeling extremely relieved.
"Under one condition…" Emily said with a smirk as she crossed her arms over her chest.
"What? I'll do anything!" Jayden said, eagerly awaiting the full acceptance of his apology.
"Promise that you'll never get out of control again? And that you'll never hit anyone on this team with the intent to hurt them?" Emily asked.
"I promise. Sorry about getting out of control. I was just so afraid of losing you." Jayden said apologetically.
"Jayden. You have nothing to worry about. I won't leave you." Emily said as she gave Jayden a kiss. "But really, I'm not the person you should be apologizing to." Emily said as she gestured to Mike.
"Mike, I'm really sorry I got so mad at you. I'm sorry that I punched you, and I'm sorry that I called you a bitch and an asshole." Jayden said.
Mike pulled Jayden in for a hug, "I forgive you. If I were you I probably would have freaked out too." Mike said with a laugh.
The two boys let go of each other and ended the bro hug.
"Thanks Mike. I promise I will make it up to you." Jayden said.
"You'll pay for pizza when we get home?" Mike asked hopefully.
"Sure." Jayden said with a smile as he wrapped an arm around Emily.
"And you'll let me whoop your ass at my new video game?" Mike asked, planning to milk this for all it was worth.
"Okay Mike. If it'll make you happy." Jayden joked.
"And.." Mike started before he was interrupted.
"That's as far as I'll go Mike. Don't push me." Jayden said.
"Okay, okay." Mike said, admitting defeat.
"Well this is great and all, but can we go home now? I just spent a week with Dekker sleeping on a cold cement floor, and I miss my bed." Kevin asked.
"Sure Kev. Antonio, which way is home?" Jayden asked.
"Miles and miles, that way." Antonio said as he pointed towards home.
"Miles? I dunno if I can walk that far.. I still hurt… everywhere." Emily said.
"I know what we can do." Jayden said with a big smile on his face.
"What? I am not sitting on a horse again. That hurt, soo bad." Emily said.
"Hop on my back," Jayden said as he crouched down towards the forest floor. "I'll carry you home."
Emily smiled and walked behind Jayden. She jumped very carefully up on his back. She wrapped her one good arm around his neck, and slowly eased the other one over his shoulder so she could still hold on.
Jayden felt Emily's weight on his back, and as soon as she was situated he stood up and readjusted his arms as to not hurt Emily any further.
"Okay, I think we're ready to head back. Antonio, lead the way!" Jayden said as he started walking.
The team headed off in the direction of home. Antonio and Mike were leading the way in the very front of the group. Mia and Kevin were holding hands and walking a little behind them. Jayden and Emily though were farther behind everyone else, enjoying the small amount of privacy.
"Em? I'm really sorry, about everything. I was being a douche, and I hope you can forgive me. I promise that next time I won't go all crazy and attack people." Jayden said as he walked, with Emily clinging onto his neck as they walked.
Emily leaned forward and gave Jayden a kiss on the cheek. "I forgive you Jay. It's over now, and we can forget about it."
"Good." Jayden said with a smile on his face. He was relieved that everything was officially okay between him and Emily.
"But I'm still curious about one thing.." Emily started.
"Which is?" Jayden asked as he turned his head to get a better look at his girlfriend.
"Well.." Emily said, planning to tease the red ranger just a little bit, "What made you want to beat Mike so bad? Yelling I can understand, but you punched him. Kevin and Antonio had to pull you off of him before you killed him."
Jayden sighed and turned his head back to look at the ground. He didn't know how to answer the question. He had never been an extremely violent person. But even he had to admit that he had lost control. If Kevin and Antonio hadn't have pulled him off, Mike probably would have been on his death bed.
"I guess I let jealousy get the best of me. I guess I wanted Mike to hurt like he hurt me. I wanted him to know how much it hurt seeing you with him like that." Jayden said.
"Oh." was all Emily said.
There was silence between the two as they continued to walk home through the forest.
"Jayden?" Emily finally spoke, breaking the uncomfortable silence.
"Yeah Em?" Jayden asked as he turned his head yet again.
"I'm sorry I made you feel that way.." Emily said sadly, avoiding the eye contact Jayden kept trying to make.
"It's okay. Like I said, I over reacted." Jayden shrugged it off.
"Still.." Emily said sadly.
"Hey guys!" the couple heard coming from Mike.
"What?" Jayden shouted back to Mike.
"We're almost there! Antonio said only another like 5 minutes!" Mike said excitedly, jumping like a small boy.
"Why don't you guys all run ahead? Em and I can find our way back." Jayden suggested.
"Okay! We'll see you at the house!" Mike said as he took off running towards the house. The others chased off after him, excited to sleep in their own beds again and get real food.
"We'll be there in a minute!" Jayden shouted, hoping that someone heard.
"Why did you want them to run ahead?" Emily asked confused.
Jayden slowly set Emily down on the ground. Emily hopped off without managing to hurt herself. Jayden then turned Emily so that she was facing him.
"Emily, it isn't your fault that I freaked out. Don't blame yourself." Jayden assured her.
"Okay." Emily responded.
"Oh and Em?" Jayden asked.
"What is it?" Emily asked with a worried expression.
"I love you." Jayden said sweetly.
Emily stood on her tip toes and gave Jayden a kiss. Jayden pulled her in close and responded eagerly as he deepened the kiss. He could feel the fireworks going off all around him as he kissed Emily. Soon though the two had to pull apart for air, and the kiss ended.
"I love you too Jay." Emily said with a big smile on her face.
Jayden's heart melted as he realized what she said. Jayden was speechless, and all he could do was stand there with a huge goofy grin plastered on his face.
The two just stared at each other with smiles on their faces. Their moment was interrupted though when Jayden's samuraizer started ringing. The sudden sound made them both jump.
"Hello?" Jayden asked as he answered the phone.
"Where are you guys?" Mia asked on the other end.
"We're on our way. Sorry, we kinda got caught up." Jayden said with a smile as he looked back at Emily.
"I don't think I want to know." Mia said, Jayden could tell by her voice that she was smirking as she said it.
"We're on our way." Jayden said with a laugh.
"Okay, hurry up. With everything else, I want things back to normal. So don't get kidnapped, and don't die." Mia said jokingly, yet still serious.
"Things will never be the same again." Jayden said laughingly.
"Huh?" Mia replied confused.
"Everything will be the same, except me and Em. You and Kevin." Jayden laughed.
"True. But hurry home. Bye" Mia said as she laughed along.
"Bye" Jayden replied as he hung up the phone.
"Let's head home. We still have to walk for awhile." Jayden said.
"Carry me?" Emily said with her puppy dog eyes. She knew Jayden couldn't resist.
"Come here." Jayden said as he scooped Emily up, carrying her bridal style.
"Goodnight Jay." Emily said with a smile as she got comfortable in Jayden's arms and closed her eyes.
"Goodnight." Jayden said with a chuckle.
"Love you." Emily said as she drifted off to sleep in Jayden's arms.
"Love you too." Jayden said, but when he looked down he saw that Emily was already asleep. And as she slept she still had a big smile on her face.
THE END! HOPE YOU ALL ENJOYED IT!
