Sorry it took so long to update. I had to get the last chapter perfect.

Chapter 9: Final Moments

"Jack! It's going to explode in thirty seconds!"

Jack faced his PDA on the bomb. Chloe had managed to activate it as a timer. Jack stared at it waiting for Chloe to tell him the scramatics to disable it. His mind went to flashback mode.

"Terri…I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry." Tears spilled out of his eyes like ragging waterfalls. He held his wife's limp body in is arms. He cradled and rocked her getting all of the blood from her bullet wound onto his sweaty clothes. "I'm so sorry."

Bill shook his head. "Don't say it Bill. Don't"


"Don't Bill. Don't say it." She walked over to the wall, and as Jack watched on, she sank to the ground dropping all of her files. He was 'dead'.

"Uncle Jack, SGH needs you."

"The need Greg." She shook her head.

"Nobody loves me?" House made his puppy dog eyes. Jack easily shook his head in disappointment at his brother.

"Derek just called, there's a nuke at SGH." Jack was shocked.

"Seattle Grace Hospital Staff, please report to Lecture Hall's A, B and C. All staff members to lecture hall A, B and C." Jack scanned the surgical wing as nurses and doctors ran to the lecture halls. He had sent Tony to make the announcement with full trust. He stared back at Chloe's computer.

"Meredith, get out of here."

"Where is Uncle Greg?"

"I'm right here idiot. I though I wasn't loved." Meredith and her uncle rolled their eyes. Even in the face of utter chaos, he was still sarcastic.

"Where's your team?"

"On a plane to Mexico."


"No idiot."

"We need to get out of here. The nuke is an A-15 ARD."


"O.k.? Seriously? We need to get out of here."

"You know Jack is going to stop it."

"Seriously! It doesn't matter."

"We aren't talking about some random guy Meredith. Our family is like superheroes. We all can save the world. Well, actually, I lied, since grandpa Bauer and Graham are idiots."

"Fine, you can kill yourself then." Meredith stormed off, but Jack chuckled. Sometimes through his brother's sarcasm, was a hint of humor?

"29 second Jack." He got himself together and walked towards the ticking bomb. "Ok, use the side gauge to get in." Jack opened the side carefully making sure that with every movement the bomb wouldn't go off. "There are two red wires, a yellow wire, four black wires, and eight blue wires." Jack nodded.

"What do I do Chloe?" She heard a little fear in his voice.

"27 second Jack. We need to disconnect the yellow wire." Jack did what he was told with major precaution. "You know need to take out the chip that the wire was attached to."

"I can't Chloe. There is a blue one also attached to it."

"I know. The blue wire can't be detached, but the black wire attached to it does" Jack understood and used his tools to disconnect the black wire making sure it wasn't the blue.

"15 second Jack. You need to disconnect the other side of the blue wire. If you mess with this side the bomb will go off. Find the other end of this blue wire." Jack took three seconds finding it."

"I got it."

"Detach the other side from the chip now, and send to my computer. 11 seconds." Jack shoved the disk into Tony's PDA and loaded it to Chloe's computer.

"50 Chloe."

"7 seconds. 6, 5.Got it." Jack waited and prayed Chloe would be able to disable it. 4, 3, 2… "GOT IT." Jack sighed. He could always trust Chloe.

"Good work Chloe. Pack up. We need to trace the person who planted the bomb. We're off to CTU."

"Uncle Jack." Meredith ran into her Uncle's arms. "You did it."


"Thank you." Jack nodded, yet he understood. This was his niece's home.

"I'm going back to CTU. We need to locate the terrorist."

"Thank you."

"Anything for you Mere."

"Be careful." Jack shut his eyes, and then opened them.

"You too." He hugged her. "Make sure Kim stays safe."

"She misses you."

"I miss her too."

"Wow Meredith." Derek slipped his hand into hers. Night had overcome Seattle, and the rain poured down. Meredith sat with Derek at the entrance of the hospital.

"Yeah. And the weirdest thing is that now everything will be back to the way it was." Derek shook his head.

"No, because now, we have a baby that's growing inside of you." Meredith smiled. That was really weird to think about. "Where is your crazy uncle?"

"Which one?"


"On a plane back to Princeton." Derek looked relieved, but Meredith stopped him. "He'll be back soon." Derek smiled. "So will Jack." Derek leaned in and kissed his girlfriend,

I'm done. I know that it was short for all of you waiting for all of that time, but it was really hard to write. Anyway, thanks to everyone for sticking with it even though it was really confusing at times. I hope you liked it.
