Summary: Jake finally realizes what he wants and exactly what he needs

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Jake and Penny got in to work, smiling at one another, kissing in the elevator and the parking lot as if they were the only one's on the earth. After a short make out session in Jake's office, the two realized that they should probably get to work, or people, as in Claire, may start to make inappropriate comments, something Jake certainly did not want Penny to have to be subjected to. Actually, more so than Claire's comments, Jake had other things on his mind. Other things like Dylan. He called her in to his office with intentions of confessing everything to her. The fact that he was once in love with her, and that he was indeed the one that got that book for her at Christmas, and that he felt that she had the right to know that. He also intended on telling her that he had put all that behind him. His future was with Penny and that was how he wanted it. Unfortunately, none of that happened. As soon as Dylan came in to his office he froze; just like old times.

"You wanted to see me?" Dylan asked.

"Umm, yeah, right. I umm just wanted to see how things were going. Are you ok?" he asked. "God, how could I be so stupid?" he thought. "Why can't I just tell her?"

"Yeah, things are ok. I'm all moved out of Gavin's now so things are getting back to normal." She replied weakly. "Sooo is that it?"

"Yeah," Jake muttered "that's it." Maybe another time. He just wasn't ready yet. He knew he had to tell her sometime and that she deserved to know, but he just couldn't bring himself to do it. But just as Dylan turned around and started to leave a rush of courage came over him. It was actully quite refreshing. Not like anything before. "Dylan- wait!" he exclaimed. "I lied, that's not it. I need to tell you something, something I should have told you a long, long time ago."

"Oook," she said. "What is it?"

"I'm in love with you" he blurted out. "Was, I was in love with you, for a very, long time. Dylan, I moved here for you. I saw that this show needed me, but I was still planning on moving back to New York, but then, I saw you and I knew that I couldn't leave because you were so beautiful and so perfect. And I spent my days flirting with you, wanting you, waiting for you want me too. But that never happened, so I found Penny, and we're so completely happy together, but I felt like you needed to know. I wanted to tell you sooner but you were with Gavin, so I was afraid to. I was afraid of rejection. But now I realize that I have nothing to lose, except maybe your friendship, and I really don't want that to happen, but you needed to know. So there it is, all out in the open. I loved you."

"So. that book? At Christmas?" she asked. He just nodded. She had thought it was weird that Gavin would do something like that. He was romantic, but not like that. He just wasn't that kind of guy. Now it all made sense. The book had been from Jake, the most romantic person she had ever met. And she knew that she loved him too. "Jake, that book was the best present I've ever gotten." She said. "It was like you knew exactly what I wanted and what you wrote inside, it was so perfect. If I had known it was you who had written that.. Never mind. It's too late."

"Too late for what?" he asked "Dylan, you can't hold back now. What is it too late for?"

"I don't know how to say this Jake," she said quietly. "I feel- felt- the same way. I just thought that you weren't interested. Gavin was completely right. I was totally in love with you, and it really was obvious. Especially to him I guess. I'm sorry, I know this isn't fair to you know, since you're the one in a relationship. But I guess you're right, we needed to get things out in the open instead of having these feelings just floating around."

"So, you're in love with me?" he asked inching closer to her.

"You're in love with me?" she asked as their eyes locked.

"Yeah," he said.

"Still?" she asked, it was obvious that their friendship would never be the same again, she wanted to make sure that this was going to be worth it.

"Always." He replied. Simple, yet so perfect. Their lip met and they kissed unlike anything they had ever experienced before. Nothing could have ever been so perfect. This truly was everything that they had ever wanted. This was their dreams coming true.
