Over the next few days Natalie wasn't talking much to anyone not even Sawyer. Sawyer really didn't know what to do for her anymore. She was having a hard time dealing with the fact she shot someone. She wouldn't talk to Jack either. Today Natalie was sitting inside Sawyer's tent reading a book, trying to read a book. Sawyer walked over and sat down by her.
"Shortcake," he said softly. "I wish you would talk to me," he added.
"I'm ok," she replied.
"No you're not," Sawyer said grabbing the book from her.
"Hey!" she exclaimed.
"You weren't reading it, you've been on the same page for at least twenty minutes." He said. "Come on Natalie talk to me," he pleaded. "Tell me what's going on, what you're thinking about?"
"I don't know what I'm thinking about," she confessed. "All I know is I shot a man I used to love, I mean I was going to have his baby."
"A baby he caused you to lose," Sawyer pointed lose.
"Yeah I know," she sighed. "I shot him but I don't know if I should have."
"Natalie you saved my life," Sawyer told her. "He would have killed me, he tried."
"I know," she said. "The only thing I'm sure of is that I'm glad he didn't kill you, I'm glad you're still here putting up with me," she said softly.
"Well I love you Natalie," Sawyer said.
"I love you to," Natalie said softly and Sawyer brushed the hair away from her face.
"Natalie when's the last time you ate something?" he asked her.
"I don't remember," she admitted. "A few days ago," she said.
"You need to eat Natalie. After all we've been through I'm not losing you now," he said and she smiled slightly. "Will you eat something?" he asked hopefully and she nodded.
"Ok come on," he said. "You haven't even been out of the tent in a few days," he added. "Everyone's worried about you."
"I didn't mean to worry everyone," she said quietly.
"Its ok," Sawyer said. "Now come on," he added and stood up and held his hand out to Natalie. Natalie placed her hand in his and helped her stand up.
"No come on," she said softly and led her outside the tent. When she got outside Natalie felt people looking at her.
"Everyone's looking at me," she said quietly.
"No they're not," Sawyer told her. "Now come on," he told her.
As they were walking to get some food they ran into Jack.
"Natalie," he said relieved. "I'm so glad to see you're out," Jack added and she looked up.
"When's the last time you ate?" Jack asked worried.
"A few days ago," Natalie answered quietly.
"A few days ago," Jack repeated. "Natalie, you need to take better care of yourself," Jack told her. "You should let me check you out."
"No," she said shaking her head.
"Natalie's going to get some food Jack," Sawyer told him. "It can wait," he added and Jack started to argue but looked at Sawyer's face and saw it was no use.
"Bring her by later," Jack told him and he nodded and walked away with Natalie.
A few minutes later Natalie and Sawyer sat outside their tent eating some fruit and fish.
"Thank you," Natalie said. "For everything." She added and he smiled at her.
"I love you, so you don't have to thank me," he told her and Natalie smiled at him.
"Well I guess I have to go see Jack now," she sighed.
"You don't have to Natalie," Sawyer told her. "Not if you don't want to."
"There's nothing wrong with me, I'm fine," she told Sawyer. "I don't need a doctor, I need my brother."
"Ok then, you won't go," he said laying his hand over hers.
"Thanks," she said.
"I'm going to tell Jack you're not going to make it," Sawyer told him.
"James," Natalie said.
"I'll be nice," he told her and leaned over and kissed her lightly on the lips.
"James," she said tightening her grip on his hand.
"Natalie," he said. "I'll be back I promise," he assured her. "I'll be back," he told her and kissed her again.
"Ok," she said and let go of his hand and he stood up and walked away.
Sawyer made his way to where Jack would be waiting for Natalie. Sawyer saw him sitting down on a rock.
"Hey Doc," Sawyer said and he looked up.
"Where's Natalie?" he asked.
"She's not coming," Sawyer answered her.
"What?" Jack asked standing up.
"She said she wasn't going to come, so I told her I wouldn't force her," Sawyer told him.
"If something's wrong with her I need to find out," Jack told him.
"Nothing's wrong with Natalie," Sawyer told him. "She shot a guy a few days ago and I'm sure that's kind of messed with her head a little bit," Sawyer went on. "She'll be ok," Sawyer assured. "She doesn't need a doctor, she needs her big brother," he finished and walked away leaving Jack staring at him.
Jack made his way to see Natalie, he knew she'd be at Sawyer's tent. He thought about what Sawyer said to him. 'she doesn't need a doctor, she needs her big brother,' Was Sawyer right? When he got to the beach he saw Natalie sitting outside the tent and she was talking to Hurley and actually smiling. Jack walked over.
"Natalie," Jack said and she looked up.
"I'll go," Hurley said. "See you later Natalie."
"Bye Hurley," she said and stood up.
"What is it Jack?" she asked. "Is this a house a call?"
"No," he said. "I'm not here as a doctor, I'm here as your brother."
"Ok," she said quietly.
"Natalie, I'm sorry," Jack said.
"For what?" she asked. "I'm ok Jack," she added. "I'll be fine."
"Good," Jack said and Natalie stepped towards him and hugged him. Jack wrapped his arms around her. "You're my sister Natalie and I love you no matter what, forever," he told her. "Remember all around the world and back again," Jack said quietly. "That's what you used to say."
"Yeah I know." She said. "I love you to Jack, no matter what."
"So we'll be ok?" he asked.
"Of course Jack, you're my brother, the only family I have and we're always ok," she said looking up at him.
"Alright then," he said. "I should go."
"Alright Jack," she said smiling and he walked away.
A few minutes later Sawyer got back.
"Whatever you said worked," she told him.
"What do you mean?" he asked.
"Don't act stupid it doesn't suit you," she said. "Whatever you said to Jack, he just left."
"He did huh?" Sawyer said smiling.
"Everything's going to be ok, I'm going to be ok," she told him. "I know that now." She went on. "Now that I know everything will be ok between me and Jack, its going to be ok."
"That's good," he said.
"And that everything is ok between us," she said.
"You know everything between us is ok, I love you no matter what," he told her. "I might even marry you if we had someone that could do that."
"Seriously?" she asked surprised.
"Yeah, but I guess we're stuck here together forever," he told her. "But that's ok because I can't think of anyone else I'd rather be stuck with."
"Me either," she agreed. "And if you asked me to marry you, I would," she told him smiling.
"Well that's good to know," he said and slipped his arms around her waist and kissed her.
The more days that went by the more Natalie got back to being somewhat back to how she was before she shot Johnny. She was walking along the beach by herself thinking about what Sawyer had said a few days ago how he would marry her if there was someone that could marry them.
"You look happy," someone said and she turned around and saw Hurley.
"Hey Hurley, I am kind of."
"What's got you so happy?" he asked.
"Sawyer," she told him.
"Yeah a few days ago, well a few days ago Sawyer told me that if we were somewhere where someone could marry us that he would marry me," she told him. "That's like so not him," she added.
"Yeah I had him as the kind of guy that would never get married," Hurley admitted. "But then you have brought out a side of him no one would have ever believed existed."
"I know, I love him so much and can't imagine ever being without him."
"I'm glad your happy," Hurley said.
"Thanks Hurley," she said. "I'll see you later," she added.
"Alright Natalie," he said and she walked off towards Sawyer.
"Hey," she said and he turned around.
"Hey Shortcake," he said smiling.
"I love you," she said.
"And I love you to," Sawyer told her. "Forever," he added.
"Yeah Forever," she agreed and they walked back to their tent together.
