I can Never Change You:

Authors Note: Okay this is my version of how i feel things could have ended. But it slides off into a whole nother world in the next chapter. So R&R because that's what keeps me going. I LOVE J/H. They were sexy together and when she was with him i could stand her.

Disclaimer: I dont own nething having to do with that 70's show. Nope i'm just playing with the characters until they take them away from me.

Chapter One: There once was a time when I loved you

'You can't make someone change the way you want them to,' Jackie thought as she laid down on the bed in the cheap motel she'd chosen to stay at. Luxury and feeling like a pampered princess weren't the things she was thinking about when she chose this particular motel. The only person on her mind was Steven. She couldn't believe how selfish she'd acted. She wanted this so bad, but she could have had it and still had Steven. But no she had to ask again and again about marriage. He'd told her time and time again that he didn't know if marriage was for and yet she'd kept pushing him and finally going so far as to giving him an ultimatum. "Why'd I do that to him?" Jackie asked herself.

"Why'd you do what?" Michael asked as he walked out of the bathroom in nothing but a towel.

"Michael what the hell do you think you're doing?" Jackie said as she stood up.

"What I thought we were gonna do it."

"No we are not going to do it."

"Then where am I supposed to sleep Jackie because once I get in a bed with a girl I gotta do it!"

"You're sleeping the floor Michael." Jackie said as she grabbed a blanket and a pillow.

"Fine! I'm going to get ice." Michael said before he left the room.

"Moron." Jackie said as she went back to her magazine.

He wasn't sure what he was doing. He knew he loved Jackie more than anything, hell he'd even given her his Led Zeppelin shirt. But she'd pushed and pushed until finally he couldn't take it anymore and he hurt her. At first when he'd found out that she was gone he was glad, but then the memories played in his head and he realized what he'd lost and the pain consumed him. Though he would never tell his friends because it would destroy is zen like image…but he was crushed. He loved her with his whole heart and he knew what had to do to win her back. He had to do what he'd decided to do when he was with the guys at that beer warehouse. He sighed and gathered every bit of strength he could muster as he pulled the El Camino into the spot by her door and got out.

"Steven." Jackie said as he opened the door. "What are you doing here?"

Hyde felt his heart jump as she stood up. "Jackie I-"

"The people across the street couldn't see us doing it either. HYDE!" Kelso said as he walked in.

Hyde looked between the two of them then chased Kelso, but ended up with his towel.

"I'm naked!" Kelso yelled as Hyde shut the door and looked at Jackie.

"Well that didn't take long."

"Steven nothing-"

"Save it. I can't believe I ever loved you. We're done Jackie." Hyde said before he opened the door and left.

Jackie sank to the ground as she heard the El Camino peel out. Tears feel from her eyes as if a dam inside her had been broken.

"Jackie!" Michael yelled as he stood by the door.

"Go away Michael."

"Please let me in."

"Get the hell away from me!" Jackie screamed as she slammed the door in his face.

Hyde walked down the stairs and into the basement. Tears that he didn't even know he was shedding slid down his face as he packed everything he owned into a bag. Everything he loved was gone. Everyone around him was leaving him. Forman was in Africa, Donna and Fez were to busy hanging out with Charlie, Kelso was just a dick, and Jackie was in Chicago. It was time to leave Point Place for good. Hyde picked up his bag and went upstairs. He found Red and Kitty in the kitchen. He hadn't even realized it was morning.

"Good morning Steven are you hungry?"

"No I need to talk to you." Hyde said as he sat in his usual seat.

"Did you get arrested?" Red asked.


"Is Jackie pregnant?" Kitty asked.

"No she's in Chicago."

"Then what do you need to talk about?" Kitty asked.

I'm leaving. WB has been begging me to go run the grooves in California, but I never gave it any thought. And I know you don't think this is a good idea, but I think after years of hearing you preach to Forman about starting a career that you'd think I may have listened a little." Hyde sighed as he looked at when he said the next bit of his speech. "I have no idea how to thank you for everything you've done for me. I'm not good at these sappy speeches but I'll try. When I had no where else to go you took me in and became the parents I'd always wanted. Mrs. Forman you are more of a mother than my own and I've always considered you my mom. Red you are every bit a father to me as WB. I cant find the words to thank you."

Red got up from the table and went into the living room as Kitty took Hyde's hand. "Steven I just adore you. You are my son in every way possible. I love you so much."

Red walked back in as Hyde stood up. "Here." Red said as he handed Hyde an envelope. "That's all the rent you've paid us over the years. Take care of yourself son." Red said as he put his hand on Hyde's shoulder. "Make us proud."

"Thank you sir…I'll try my best."

"Oh Steven." Kitty said as she pulled him into a hug. Hyde hugged her back then pulled away and walked out with his things.

Donna and Fez were walking towards the basement when they saw Hyde coming out. "Hey Hyde, how'd it go last night?" Donna asked.

"Is Jackie home?" Fez asked.

"Ask Kelso. Listen guys I'm leaving. I just have to go. WB wants me to run his store in LA and I never really put any thought into it till now. So I'm going to go."

Fez ran to Hyde and hugged him. "You cant leave. I'll miss you!" Fez cried.

Hyde pulled away from Fez. "Hey I'll be back man. Cant ring in the 80's without me."

Donna walked up to Hyde as Fez went to the basement.

"First Eric and now you…I'm going to miss you Hyde."

Hyde pulled Donna to him and whispered in her ear. "If she ever asks if I loved her…tell her I will always love her." Hyde pulled away and wiped a tear from Donna's eyes. Hyde smiled at her, pulled on his shades then walked to his car and drove away.
