"Look, I can't let you go without knowin,'" Joe said.
"What?" asked a slightly confused Jess, although she had a hope of what Joe might say to her.
"That even with the distance and the concerns of your family, we might still have something. Don't you think?"
Jess leaned in to kiss Joe, a kiss she had been waiting for…..for quite some time. It was if she and Joe were the only people in the world, which is quite a feat considering they were in the middle of London's Heathrow airport. She didn't want to leave now, but she had to.
All of the sudden, the voice of her good friend Jules broke through to her.
"Jess, it's Becks!" There on an upper floor was Jess' idol, who in a sense had gotten her where she is today. David Beckham and his wife Victoria were being followed around Heathrow with a mini paparazzi.
With a smile, Joe kissed Jess yet again. He didn't want to let her go, but he had to.
"I'm back at Christmas. We'll tackle my mom and dad then."
All Joe could say was an emotional, whispered, "Yeah."
"Okay, I'd better go." stated a excited yet heartbroken Jess.
All that was left was for Jess and Jules to board that plane. It was difficult yet exciting for both of them. They were leaving everything they'd ever known, however they were leaving to make their dreams come true. Each of them thought to themselves, "At least I'm not going to be alone." And with that, they made one final wave, and walked down the jet way….towards their futures.
Their families and friends stood there watching them, not sure whether to cry or celebrate.
