Here's the final chapter of Jeff's story, although Jeff and Tommy will feature a bit in Evan's story as will some of the others hopefully. I'll take a few days off now, maybe even a week to get a good story plotted out for Evan/Batista. If you've got any story title ideas for those two relating to the Something More theme then feel free to suggest them. I'll give you cred like I gave Taker'sLady.
That night Tommy went charging down the hallway to Jeff's room, rapping on the door firmly and then standing there with hands on hips waiting for the door to open. He was going to fight Evan if he had to. Jeff was his and he was taking him back by any means necessary that didn't involve someone's demise.
Jeff was shocked when he opened the door to find Tommy standing there. "Tommy?"
Tommy barged past Jeff and into the room but found it empty. "Where's Evan?" Tommy asked.
"I don't know… probably off screwing some random guy" Jeff said with a shrug.
Tommy looked at Jeff with confusion and said "And you're okay with that?"
"Well yeah… why wouldn't I be? It's not like we're dating" Jeff said with equal confusion.
"No." Jeff replied. Why was Tommy thinking they were dating?
"Oh" Tommy replied. He stood there unsure of what to do now he didn't need to fight Evan.
Suddenly it dawned on Jeff what Evan's plan had been – to make Tommy jealous! Very smart Evan.
Jeff jumped into Tommy's arm's making him catch him as Jeff smothered him with kisses all over. "I'm not with Evan I only want to be with you. I'm sorry I said I didn't love you but I was just scared to fall in love again, but I'm not scared any more!" Jeff said at a million miles an hour before going back to covering Tommy with kisses.
"Jeff there's nothing to be scared of with me" Tommy said happily as he held Jeff tightly.
"I know that now. Can we just forget the whole thing and… go to bed?" Jeff asked with a saucy grin.
And when he put it that way Tommy couldn't help but agree.
A few months later and Jeff and Tommy were happier than ever and could barely stand to be separated for even a moment. But that came to be a hindrance for Tommy when he tried to get a moment alone with Matt. He ended up excusing himself to go to the bathroom when they were at work one night just after he had seen Matt go in there. "Psst Matt!" He sang out as he snuck in. Matt turned around having only just walked through the door. "Tommy what's up?"
"Jeff's barely given me a moment alone lately, not that I'm complaining mind you but I've been wanting to have a private chat with you. I'd rather it wasn't in the bathroom but this will have to do"
"It's not something bad is it?" Matt asked with a groan.
"No no no. I hope it's something good. I hope. I uh… I wanted to ask how you would feel if I asked Jeff to marry me"
A huge smile broke out on Matt's face and he gave Tommy a hug. "I'm thrilled of course. You've been really good for Jeff. I've never seen him this happy and as long as it's what you want I won't stop you"
"Thanks Matt. Means a lot to me. I better go before Jeff comes looking for me" Tommy said, giving Matt a wink before walking out.
And so Tommy took Jeff out for dinner a few nights later and was nervous as hell. He wanted everything to be perfect. Jeff could see something was up. Tommy knocked over his drink, kept dropping his food off his fork since his hands were shaking. He started getting scared Tommy was going to break up with him or something. "T-Tommy are you alright?" Jeff asked, panic and fear beginning to show in his eyes.
Tommy sighed seeing all he'd succeeded in doing so far was scaring Jeff. "Nothing's wrong baby but… ah hell I might as well just do it now. I'm a nervous wreck that's completely obvious"
He pulled out a ring box from his jacket pocket and handed it to Jeff with shaking hands. "Jeff I love you. I want to spend my life with you. Will…will you marry me?" He asked.
Jeff just stared at the ring box for a while freaking out before he dropped it back onto the table as if it was going to burn his hand. Then he burst into tears. "Ohh Jeffy what's wrong?"
"I don't want to say no because it'll ruin things but… I… I don't want to get married either. I'm scared. I don't want things to go wrong like they did with Shannon" Jeff said miserably as Tommy knelt beside his chair.
Tommy put the ring box back in his jacket and then placed a tender kiss on Jeff's lips. "Nothing's going to go wrong. If you don't want to get married then we don't have to. It doesn't matter to me. All I care about it being with you Jeff. I thought maybe you would want this, but we've got the rest of our lives to get married, so if you feel like it later then you know that I'd say yes, but if we never get married well that's okay with me too, as long as you love me"
"I do Tommy" Jeff said, wiping away his tears before kissing Tommy back. "Come on let's get out of here" Tommy suggested before they could make more of a scene.
Jeff was filled with relief and joy knowing Tommy was okay about everything. Even though he didn't want to get married he couldn't help but feel more secure knowing that Tommy was prepared to have taken that step with him.
He looked up at Tommy and knew that he would never love anyone as much as he loved Tommy, and that the future was bright because he was a part of it.
"Sounds like a plan" Jeff finally said, putting his hand in Tommy's so Tommy could lead him out of the restaurant.
THE END… of Jeff's story ;) I usually give a little preview part of how the next story will start, but I'm having a bit of writer's block so I'll have to leave you all hanging
