A/N: Yes, I'm still on somewhat of an hiatus. But I had to end this story. I somehow found time to do this…but here ya go. It's the endddd!
Jeff stood in Jessica's doorway in shock. He couldn't move, couldn't breathe, couldn't speak. Jessica cleared her throat as she looked down at the ground. She wrapped her tan sweater around her and hugged her arms across her chest. Jeff just couldn't comprehend that she was standing right in front of him.
"I…I don't know…"
Jeff couldn't think of anything to say. Here she was. He had been itching to see her for weeks. He had been missing the sound of her voice and the sight of her. Well here she was. And he couldn't say a damn word?
"Look…Jeff…I know your tired and really shocked. But I know you have a lot of questions so…"
A lot of questions? He sure did have a lot of questions! He opened his mouth to speak, but closed it. He couldn't make a sound come out of his mouth. Why couldn't he speak? He cleared his throat and tried talking again.
"I missed you."
Jessica smiled slightly and laughed a little to herself. Jeff laughed a little bit to himself. His voice sounded a lot different then it did before. Soon silence filled the room again. Jeff searched his brain for something to say.
"I don't know why this is so hard."
"I have a pretty good idea."
"We haven't talked in forever."
"Ages pretty much."
"You never came up to talk to me."
"What are you saying Jeff?"
"That it's your fault."
"I tried talking to you Jeff. You denied me…"
"All I wanted to do was talk to you!"
"Then why didn't you?"
"Because you never approached me!"
Shit. They were fighting already. Jeff sighed as he finally moved to run his fingers through his multi-colored hair. He looked at Jessica who was looking right at him.
"Tell me. Why did you do this damn hunt?"
"I didn't know what to do. Saying sorry wasn't good enough for you. I went to Ken and he gave me the idea of the hunt. I knew you liked grilled cheese so I used those for the clues."
"And the people…"
"What about them?"
"I didn't like your selection."
"What was wrong with my selection?!"
"Well first you had John Cena hand me my grilled cheese at Home Depot."
"I thought he was a good choice."
"Why? Because you hooked up with him?"
Jessica grunted as she turned around and walked into the kitchen in frustration. Jeff had no choice but to follow her. Why was she so mad? It was the truth! He walked into the kitchen to see Jessica fuming.
"Why are you so mad?"
"I didn't choose John just because I hooked up with him once or twice!"
"Then why did you?"
"Because! I knew he was a guy I could trust! I hesitated at first because I knew he liked me a lot. But once I explained it to him he got it. He knew I loved you and not him. He had to accept it."
"He got all deep on me and shit. It was weird."
"I know. He told me."
"Now about that Chantel girl…"
Jessica started to double over in laughter as he said that. He gripped onto the counter so she wouldn't fall over. Jeff looked at her confused. She was laughing…why? Jessica calmed down and ended up giggling as she looked up at Jeff.
"I told her what I was doing. She volunteered right away to help. God she was so god damn excited…it was hilarious! She wanted to tell you off so bad but she settled for yelling at you. She was laughing so hard at you as she told me how confused you are."
"Glad you find my confusion amusing."
"I understand why you chose Matt…he's my own brother."
"He was in on it all along."
"I figured. But Ken?"
"He's the one that helped me out. I was running out of people."
"But yet you go to Shane…"
Jessica sighed as she looked up at Jeff. She knew he would be the hardest to explain. She didn't want to talk to Shane in the first place. The moment she called him on the phone she wanted to reach through it and strangle him. But she gathered up the courage to talk to him somehow.
"I didn't wanna have him in on this Jeff…"
"Then why did you?"
"I needed one more person! I ran out of people…"
"What about my dad?"
"He was asleep when I called. That's when Matt answered."
"You knew how I felt about Shane."
"Then why did you have him here?!"
"I don't know Jeff! I just…I don't know! He was available and…"
"That was the stupidest idea you had! How could you do that Jess?! You I hate that man with a passion!"
"And yet you made a deal with him!"
"Don't you dare say that's different Jeffery Nero Hardy because it's not! It's not!"
Tears were streaming down Jessica's cheeks now. Jeff stopped talking and tried to calm down. He didn't mean to work her up like this. He hated to see her cry. They both have had a long days. With all the clues and such…
"Wait a sec. Jess you said there were eight clues."
"I only have seven. Where is the eighth one?"
"Right in front of you Jeff. I'm the eighth clue."
"I'm the eighth clue Jeff. Pretty much to say that I did all this."
He should have known that Jessica was going to be the eighth clue. If his brain was working right the day would have gone a little faster. Jessica wiped tears from her face and shook her head.
"I was gonna have a bunch of people here to help explain this to you. I was gonna have stacks of grilled cheese and I was gonna go all out. But I couldn't. I…I wanted to be alone with you. I needed to be alone with you Jeff. I needed to talk to you alone."
"Is that all you can say? Oh?"
"Well what do you want me to say?"
"Something other then oh!"
"Oh…I mean not oh!"
"Oh my GOD Jeff!"
Jessica pushed past Jeff and out the kitchen door. Jeff hit himself in the head repeatedly. How could he do that? He turned around and walked out the kitchen door. He looked around and listened for Jessica. He could hear her crying up in her room. Jeff sighed as he took two stairs at a time up to her room. He got to her door and knocked on it.
"Just go away Jeff."
"I'm not going away Jess. I know what I wanna say."
"Then say it."
Jeff sighed as he took in a deep breath. He knew what he wanted to say, he just didn't know how to say it. He could just say it and not skip around the bush. Or he could warm her up to it. No. He needed to say it.
"Jess I love you. I love you more then anything in the world. Hell, you are my world. I can't stop thinking about you for one second. When we weren't talking…it drove me crazy. I needed to hear your voice. I needed you in front of me smiling, laughing. And when I didn't have it, I didn't want anyone to have that.
But John did. When he had what I wanted…I couldn't take it. My jealousy got the best of me. Shane saw what was happening with me and offered me a deal. I had to take it. Well…I didn't have to…but you get the point. When I lost you, it was the worst feeling ever.
And then you have this hunt. It drove me crazy. I was tired, confused, aggravated, everything. But something kept me going. And that was my love for you. I had a feeling that I would see you at the end of this thing.
And then in a flash you're standing right in front of me. I had no idea what to do. I missed you so much…I had to take you in. You were so beautiful. And to hear your voice…"
Jeff stopped talking when Jessica suddenly opened the door. She wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed him in an instant. She gave everything she had into that kissed. She missed everything about Jeff. His lips, his touch, his presence. Jeff wrapped his arms around her and picked her up. Jessica smiled as she wrapped her legs around his waist. They each pulled back after a while and smiled.
"So…on a scale of one to ten…how sick are you of grilled cheese."
"I've been making them since like…two this morning. You can't believe how many I've burnt."
"Oh. My poor baby."
"Oh so I'm your baby now?"
"I hope so."
"You better know so mister."
Jeff laughed as he pulled Jessica in for another kiss. He walked into her bedroom and closed the door. He set Jessica down on her bed and Jessica pulled him close to her. They pulled away for a moment and looked into each others eyes.
"I love you Jeffery Nero Hardy."
"And I love grilled cheese."
"Okay okay! I love you too Jessica Marie Chelstrom."
Jessica smiled as she kissed Jeff once more. She was finally with the man she loved.
And that's how it was going to be.
