Jess gave Colin the final kiss and walked out of the restaurant. She never even glanced back. "Well, I didn't expect to see you here." The familiar voice said to Jess as she walked towards her car.

"Jack? What the hell are you doing? Following me?" Jess asked enraged.

"No."

"Then what are you doing here?" Jess asked. After a short pause and no answer she just gave up. "You know what, just forget it. I'm going home and don't even think about following me, asking me anything, or even saying anything."

"Bad night?" Jack asked bravely as she began walking back to her car.

She stopped walking, rage flowing through her. "Why do you even care!" Jess asked and yelled at him.

"You look like you had a bad night and I just care about you."

Jess gave a small fake laugh. "This is unbelievable. If I wanted you to know what was wrong I would tell you, otherwise, stay out of my business, got it?"

"Alright." Jack said. "Good night." Jess just threw him an angry glare as she got into her car and drove off. She didn't get very far before she pulled into another parking lot. Tears filled her eyes as she began to cry. Everything she had loved about Colin was gone forever. She knew she shouldn't have done it, she knew she should have stayed back a little, but she didn't. She really thought he loved her back, that she had found her soul mate. She already missed him greatly but she tried to not let it draw her back to the restaurant to try once more. She thought back to the very first time they met.

She had just chased him through the FBI parking garage and tackled him to the ground.

"Nice to meet you. I'm Colin." Colin said smiling at her.

"Well Colin, you're under arrest."

She was pulled out of the flashback by a knock on her window. 'Oh no, not him again.' Jess thought to her self as she seen Jack at her window again. Her mind was telling her to just drive off but part of her actually believed he cared more then just a friend since he came to check on her again.

"Look Mastriani, I know that there is something really wrong since you're boyfriend also asked me what the hell I was doing at that restaurant, just not as nicely as that." Jack said.

"Colin was mean? To you?" Jess asked in disbelief.

"Why would I lie to you?" Jack asked.

"Right. Well, he's not my boyfriend anymore. Now, I'm going home, and please Jack don't follow me. I'll see you at work. Also, don't say a word to anyone else about me and Colin."

"No problem Jess. See you tomorrow." Jack said as he smiled at her and she drove off.

Jess couldn't have imagined she would ever be that mean to Jack for how bad she felt after Colin. She couldn't believe that Colin was mean to Jack either. Her mind was flowing with so much confusion, frustration, hurt, anger, and more that some of the things she thought just didn't even sound like her own voice, her own mind. All she wanted to do was be home, be in her bed so she could just cry for hours and let everything she felt out. She wanted someone to lean on, but Jack just made her more frustrated, Pollock would never work, and Antonio and Nicole were probably together and she didn't want to ruin their night. At last she saw the parking lot for her apartment. Once she was in her apartment, she saw that she had one message on her answering machine. She wasn't really in the mood to listen to it, but she pondered at who it might be so she played it anyway.

"Hi Jess. This may seem kind of pointless since I'm only two rooms away from you, but I just wanted to leave this to tell you how much I really do love you. You mean so much to me and I hope that it never changes. So, I love you with all my heart and now I'm going to go tell you what I know. See you soon baby. Bye." Colin said. The message was left just hours before it had all ended. Jess leaned against a nearby wall before sliding down to the floor in tears. The one person she loved, she truly loved, was gone, forever. She had been crying for about 20 minutes before she finally pulled herself back together. She was extremely hurt but she got up just long enough to get in bed. As she lay in bed, she recalled the first sarcastic thing Colin said in the interrogation room the day they met.

"Well the truth is, I really like that perfume." Colin said.

"I'm not wearing any."

"Then we must have chemistry."

"We don't have anything. You have got grand theft auto." Jess said.

"Nope. Never took the car. The most you got is vandalism." Colin replied sarcastically.

"Well I will work on that."

"I'll just wait right here." Colin said.

Jess hated recalling these excellent moments. Tears began falling down her cheeks again and she ended up crying herself to sleep.

"I have to admit, today was a rough day." Nicole said as she sat down on the couch beside Antonio.

"Yeah. Who knew her husband would blow the cover. Just goes to show how strange people are." Antonio said. "But I always know someone I can trust."

Nicole smiled at him. "I do too. It's amazing to think about how our relationship has been. I'm staying with it this time and nothing will ever separate me from you."

"I don't plan on ever leaving you either." Antonio said.

"The times me and you weren't together, I always thought about you and always wondered if we would ever be together again. But I think that we are soul mates and meant to be forever." Nicole said.

"I think we're soul mates too. I mean, if we weren't after the first time we'd never be back together again." Antonio said.

"Yeah. Love is a crazy thing and we are proof." Nicole joked.

"Yes we are." Antonio agreed.

"I wonder how Jess's night is going with Colin after this case." Nicole thought outloud.

"I don't know. That is a good question though. We'll find out tomorrow. Right now, I think I'm going to take a nice hot shower to relax and then I am going to bed."

"Uh-huh. Always walk away." Nicole said.

"What? You are the one that always does that." Antonio said with a smile as he began walking towards the bedroom.

"Ha-ha. Whatever." Nicole said back to him as she got up and followed him. Once she caught up with him, she gave him a quick kiss. "I love you so much Antonio."

"I love you too Nic." Antonio said.
