It had been a few weeks since Jackie and Hyde had moved into Hyde's house. Hyde went to work everyday while Jackie stayed at home; sometimes going to the Foreman's and visited with Kitty. She was taking some time to herself to figure out what she wanted to do with her life. They still hadn't gone any further in their sexual relationship but Hyde wasn't about to push her. He wanted to make sure she was ready for that step…ready to fully let it all go. Until then he was going to stay behind her no matter how long it took. One Friday night Hyde came home and found Jackie sitting on the couch sketching in a sketch book.

"Hey." He said.

She turned her head to look at him. "Oh hey…how was your day?"

Fine…" He said plopping down on the couch next to her.

She giggled. "That good huh?" She said putting the sketch book down.

"Yep…that good."

She leaned over and kissed his cheek softly. "Want a beer?"

"That would be great." He said with his eyes closed leaning his head against the back of the couch.

"Coming right up." Jackie went to the kitchen and got him a beer. She came back and gave it to him and then pushed him forward lightly.

"What are you doing?" He asked.

"Move up. I'm going to give you a massage." She said.

"Really?" He asked excitedly.

"Yep. Move up babe."

Hyde slid up to the end of the couch as she slid in behind him before taking the hem of his shirt in her hands. "Hands up." She whispered in his ear.

He raised his arms above her head as she pulled the shirt over his head and placed it next to them on the arm of the couch. She slid her hands from his lower back up to his shoulders before softly massaging his tense shoulders. "Damn…that feels so good Jacks."
She smiled and kissed the top of his curly head as she continued to massage his back to soothe him. He rolled his head back and forth releasing the tension from his tired body. She knew that he had been under a lot of stress lately with the store, and with their relationship. She hadn't been the easiest person to live with and she knew that…she was finally paying him back. She heard him whimper as her small hands did their magic on him.

"So what were you sketching?" He asked as she continued with her massage.

"Oh…I don't know…it's just something I started doing when I moved to New York. Ya know when I'm bored or whatever."

"Oh." He picked up the sketch book she had put down and flipped through the pages. He was shocked to see how good the pictures were. Some were of people, of buildings different places, and they were all amazing. "Wow Jackie…I had no idea you could draw like this." He said.

"Oh it's nothing really…just something to pass the time with."

"No seriously Jacks…these are amazing. Did you ever consider going to art school? Actually perusing a career in this?"

She stopped massaging his back for a moment and contemplated what he had just said. "Well…no. Not really."

"Well maybe you should, I think that you could have a really great career doing this Jackie." He said honestly.

"You really think so?" She asked surprised.

"Yeah…yeah I really do."

"Well…I'll think about it." She said starting to massage his back again.

"Well…good." He said before taking her hands in his and pulling her onto the couch with him. She giggled in his ear and he kissed the side of her face softly.

"Steven…" She giggled.

"Thank you." He said kissing her. "I feel better now."

"Good. Are you hungry? I could order a pizza or something."

"No…no I'm good right here." He said staring up at her.

She smiled down at him, her face flushing at his intense stare. "Oh…ok."

"So Jackie…"

"So Steven…" She said mocking him.

"How are you?" He asked softly stroking the side of her face.

"How am I? Well…I'm fine." She said playing with the hairs on his chest.

"Your fine?"

"Yes…I'm fine. Why do you ask?" She asked looking back up at him.

"I don't know…it's just that lately you've been very quiet…and just not yourself. I mean I know your still trying to work this all out but, is there anything else going on."

She looked up at him slowly. "No…and I know I haven't been the easiest person to live with lately…and I apologize for that. It's just…I feel like I'm in this weird place in my life right now ya know?"

"I know that…"

"I just…I don't know what I want to do with my life…or why these bad things happened…or if I even like the person I'm becoming…actually I don't even know who I am anymore."

"Jackie…you can do anything you want to do with your life. And there is no explanation of these things that happened to you…bad things happen to good people. And as far as the person you are becoming…you're just lost right now. You are going to be fine…and I know that you are going to do great things in your life. But I want you to talk to me about these things."

She smiled up at him and placed a kiss on his chest. "Ok…I will."

"Alright. Good…"

She stared down at him for a moment taking in the beauty that was Steven Hyde. She leaned down and kissed him more passionately than she had since they got back together. When she pulled away from his lips she just smiled down at him deliriously happy.

"What was that for?" He asked putting a finger to his lips.

"What I need a reason to kiss my boyfriend?" She said teasing him.

"No…it's just that I mean yeah sure we've kissed since we've been together…but not like that." He said.

"I know…but it just felt right." She said shrugging her shoulders.

"Ok…look Jackie is this about you feeling like we need to further our physical relationship. Because we don't…I'm fine with this."

"You've been so great about everything…really…but, I think I'm ready. I know I said that before but this time I really think I'm ready." She said staring down at him.

"Jackie-" He said leaning to sit up a bit.

"No…shh…don't talk ok? Just…love me back ok?" She said tearing up a bit.

He stared back at this woman he loved so much and cradled her head in his hands and kissed her passionately on the lips. Their tongues met causing them both to moan softly into the others mouth. Hyde pulled away panting slightly staring into her eyes and for the first time in months he saw something there he hadn't before. Pure want.

"Jackie…" He panted near her lips.

"Steven…" She said stroking her cheek softly. "Just love me back." She repeated again.

"God babe…" He smoothed his hands under her shirt.

Her eyes shut in pleasure at the feeling of his hands on her again after so long. He began to nuzzle her neck gently leaving the sweetest kisses up and down it. She sighed happily wrapping her arms around his neck wanting to just become one with this man that she loved so much.

"Steven that feels so good." She moaned.

He pulled away slightly and stared at her swollen perfect lips. "Can I…?" He asked referring to taking off her top.

"Yeah. Please do…" She said lifting her hands above her head.

Hyde slowly removed her shirt from her body, he began to feel her skin, he moved his hands over her stomach, her arms, shoulders, collarbone, and the valley between her breasts. He watched her chest rise and fall faster as she bit down on her bottom lip letting the emotions and feelings wash over her. He stared up at her and smiled taking her face in his hands and pulling her forward in a fiery kiss.

"You're sure about this?" He said softly.

"Yes Steven…I'm sure."

She smiled sweetly at him as he pulled her body closer so that their chests met causing them both to shiver. Hyde placed his hands on her hips and wrapped her legs around his waist before starting to stand up making Jackie pull away.

"What are you doing?" She panted.

"Moving this upstairs…" He said slowly. "Unless…you don't want-"

"No. No I just didn't know what you were doing."

"Oh…ok…so can I?"

"Yeah…just don't drop me." She giggled.

"Trust me. I won't." He kissed her again as he carried her up to their bedroom. When he got in the room, he shut the door behind them and made his way over to their bed. He placed her on the bed and she sat up and pulled him closer to her by his belt buckle. She licked her lips in anticipation and smiled up at him as he watched her begin to remove his pants. When the belt was off, she pulled his pants down over his legs and he stepped out of them as fast as he could. He moved his hands to her own pants and pulled them down her legs kissing up and down her legs. She pulled him down on the bed with her and stared up at him.

"My God you are beautiful." She said to him.

He smiled down at her. "Jackie guys can't be beautiful." He tried to stay tough.

"Yes they can Steven…and you are."

"Fine. But…you…you are more beautiful than anyone in this world did you know that?" He said.

She started to giggle. "Steven…"

"No you are…you are just so beautiful that sometimes I can't believe that you would want a guy like me."

She stopped giggling and stared up at him. "Oh Steven…how could I not want a guy like you. You are wonderful…you've been so good to me through all of this and I'm so grateful to have you in my life." She said honestly.

He leaned down and kissed her lips softly. "I love you."

"Oh…I love you too Steven. More than you'll ever know."

He leaned down to kiss her again as she tangled her fingers in his hair scratching at his scalp ever so delicately. He loved when she did that and he shivered at her ministrations. He moved his hands down to his hips and pushed his boxers down leaving him bare to her and she smiled when she saw all of him. She sat up, propping herself up on his elbows and smiled at him. He reached behind her and unclasped her bra leaving her chest exposed; he smiled at how beautiful she was. He kissed her lips and then kissed down her jaw, neck, chest and then licked her nipple softly. She moaned as his lips sucked on each breast gently and lovingly and she lay back to let him continue. His kisses moved from her chest down her stomach, her belly button, to her hips before he placed a kiss at the elastic waist band of her panties. He looked up at her for some reassurance and she just lifted her hips for him. He smiled and placed a kiss on her thigh before reaching up to remove her panties from her body. When he discarded them on the other side of the bed, he crawled up to look down at her. She smiled and traced her index finger over his forehead, his nose, his cheeks, chin and then to his lips.

"Steven…" She whispered.

"Just tell me if this isn't what you want…I understand."

She smiled at him because she had never seen him be this gentle, this sweet in their love making. She knew he was concerned for her especially since before when they had attempted this she had changed her mind. But not this time…this time she truly wanted to give herself to this man like she had done a million times before. But this time it would be different…this would be pure love making, a connection that neither of them had ever shared with anyone. And it would also be the sign that she was ready to move on from all the horrible things that had happened to her before. So without another word, she moved her hands down his body and positioned him at her aching entrance.

"Steven…this…this is what I want. You…are what I want."

He smiled down at her and kissed her lips gently as he felt her guide himself within her for the first time in so long. They both pulled back from their kiss and stared at each other, panting heavily, reveling in the connection they were now sharing again.

"God Jackie…"

"Steven…" She moaned as she arched her back into his embrace.

He braced his hands on either side of her head as she slid her hands up and down his back scratching it slightly. He lowered his head to her neck where he sucked and nuzzled her as he moved in and out of her. Hearing her moan and sigh in his ear only urged him to go on…but he knew that this was his time to show her how much he loved her. So he was slow…and gentle and loving with her. He wanted this to last and he wanted to make her feel hole again because he loved her with every bit of himself.

"Jackie…" He moaned back to her.

"Steven…oh god Steven this feels so good."

"Baby…" He moaned.

He felt her grip his hips and flip them over so she was now on top of him. He just smiled up at her as she lowered herself back onto him and threw her head back and moaned. He put his hands on her hips as she rocked back and forth on him making them both feel the truest pleasure they had ever felt. She panted and moaned his name over and over again as he grunted and moaned hers. She took his hands from her hips and placed them on her breasts where he squeezed them as she screamed his name in pleasure as the waves of her first orgasm hit her. He felt her walls tighten around him but he wasn't done yet…he continued to fill her over and over again.

"Oh Steven…"

"You are so beautiful baby…"

He moved his hands from her chest and grabbed a hold of her hands where they held each other as their love making continued. The moon came in through their window falling over her body making her look like an angle to Hyde. He flipped them back over and entered her again making her moan again. He moved his hand down to her clit since he felt his own release fast approaching and wanted her with him. As he rubbed the sensitive nub, he felt her write and squirm below him moaning his name over and over again making him delirious with pleasure. He leaned forward to her ear and whispered softly.

"I love you."

With that…Jackie was pushed over the edge once more and as soon as he felt her walls clench around him once more, he came too. They both stared at each other with such an intense and loving gaze neither of them could speak for a moment.

"Oh my…" Jackie whispered.

He smiled down at her and kissed her pouty lips again. "That god huh?"

"God Steven…that was amazing." She put a hand to her forehead and wiped the sweat away trying to catch her breathe. "I mean…I…you've never made me feel that way."

"Well-" He said staring to feel offended.

"No…that's not what I meant. I mean it was always good…amazing at that. But just then…you made me feel so many things. I haven't felt loved like that in forever…you made me feel hole again Steven. You loved me back." Tears welled up in her eyes and he wiped them away slowly.

"Oh baby…I love you so much. I just wanted to make you feel better…and I'm glad I did."
"I love you too Steven. I love you too."

He leaned down to kiss her as they embraced each other once again feeling happy and in love once again. After all the pain and emotions that they had been through in the past years it was all ok now. All of that…all of the running away, all of the anger and pain towards Noah and the fear of being together was over. They were together and they were one. And they were right where they belonged.
