A/N: What I hope will happen with Shayne and Dinah during this whole Edmund murder mystery. :) If you're a fan of Shayne/Dinah, go to their message board: .com/Dinah_and_?

Pairings: Pretty much just Shaynah, Jeffeva, but will mention M&M, Jeva, Cyrina, Bizzie, Otalia etc. during the last few chapters.


Chapter 1

"Rumor has it, when you love someone, you tell them." Josh said matter-of-factly.

Shayne took it as hard sarcasm and he chuckled, "Yeah, that's funny dad, like I didn't.."

"I'm serious, son…" the older man looked at his son intently, "The worst thing in life is loving someone and telling them when it's already too late."

"Dad…" Shayne got cut off when his father continued.

"I've done that one time too many." Josh got up to leave, but before he did, he said one last thing, "I just don't want to see the same thing happen to you."

Shayne was perplexed as he watched his father leave. Not knowing, or caring why their conversation had taken an abrupt, yet very serious turn, Shayne pulled out his phone and dialed Dinah's number. Either way, Josh was right. If he really loved her, there was no reason to wait to say it.

And this time he'd say it to her face.


A/N: Reviews are always loved. :)
