Disclaimer: Sadly, I own nothing, because if I did, there would be Jeyton forever!
Authors Note: I changed Jake's departure in season two to the way it should have gone. It is a little dramatic, and a little unlikely. But please R&R! Maybe One-shot.
I kept my secret unknown to the world. I couldn't bear him knowing now. It was much too late. I should have told him in the jail that night, but she couldn't. I couldn't break him down once more.
Jake was supposed to be here by now. He was going to get Jenny back, and then everything would be fine. Until, he finds out my secret that is.
I stare blankly at the flickering computer screen before me, staring that the photocopied drawing as my desktop screen. I smiled to myself as I heard footsteps coming up the stairs and head to my bedroom.
"Hey!" I say when I see him, hugging him tightly, never wanting to let go ever again. We'd been apart too long. I gently kissed his neck once and he shuddered, that's when I knew something was wrong. "It's all gonna be okay now." I say holding him tighter.
"I have to go." He says simply. I break away from the hug and frown, not knowing what he means by this. "What?! No don't! Stay here!" I say smiling.
"Nikki found Jenny." He says looking sadly at the floor. I felt as if at that very moment, somebody pulled my heart out and stomped on it. "What?! How?!" I ask as he walks past me. "I don't know how, okay? But I have to go I have to find her!"
I can't bear to lose him again, I need him, he's like a drug, I'm addicted, and there's no going back. "Ill go with you!" I say quickly with a shred of hope in my voice. "No, no you can't." He says shaking his head.
"But..." I start but he interrupts my argument. "Peyton, you can't." I sit down on my bed and start to cry. Why in the hell do people always leave? "Why not?!" I say crying harder now. "What's the point of school and grades and all of this if I'm numb?!" I say as I notice he is looking at the floor again, holding back his tears. "God Jake, me and this baby can't be without you, I love you!"
Just then, his head shot up. I panicked. I had just unwillingly admitted my secret to him. He walked closer to me and I looked up at him, confusion and scare in his eyes. "Wha-what baby?" He asks shakily. I sigh and stand up. I take his hands in mine as I begin to cry again.
"Jake...I'm pregnant..." I say slowly. I see a tear fall down his cheek and he looks into my eyes.
"...Peyton." He starts in a serious and concerned voice. "No, no. Jake its okay. Just, go get your baby. I'll be here when you get back."
I see hurt and confusion in his eyes as he takes my hand. "Peyton, I'm not leaving you." He says sternly, holding my hand. "Jake, you have to." He shakes his head.
"No, then your coming with me. You can't do this alone. I need to be there. Please..." He says. I nod and hug him once again, and he whispers in my ear.
"It'll all be okay, someday."
