Chapter 60:

After dinner, Sue and Jack took Levi out for a walk. Again Jack took Sue's hand into his own. Sue smiled at the gesture. "Sue I am so glad you are coming home to DC. When we found out you coming home, my heart soared and I became speechless. But to find out you were coming home and….."

"We could date and be on the same team."

"Yeah. That blew my mind away when I realized what we could have. Sue, about that. The reason I wanted to stay in New York to visit was to see if you would consider a long distance relationship with me. I don't want to go another day without some kind of contact with you."

"Jack, I don't want to either, now that you are back in my life. I don't want to live it with out you. I would love to further our relationship and see to what level it could go. I'm sure Levi would agree with me and now we can be on the same team is a bonus."

"Sue, from the moment you walked into our office I knew you were special. When we went undercover as a married couple, I found myself longing to be with you constantly. And when we worked on the Callahan and Merchet case, I realized that our relationship was more than a friendship between co workers. Sue I am in love with you. I'm sorry it has taken me so long to tell you."

Oh Jack, I'm in love with you too. You are a gift from God, which I intend to never take for granted again. Thank you for letting me stay with you till I find a place."

"No problem Sue. The guest room is yours as long as you want it and I hope that it is for a very long time. Think about it, car pooling will be easier." Jack said with a smile.

"Well we lived together once before and I survived. I guess I could do it again." Sue teased.

"I'll survive too, I guess. Levi and I can stick together."

Sue, Jack and Levi continued their walk though the city. They were quiet for a while each lost in their own thoughts.

"I guess that Lucy will be happy with our situation. Did you know she was dating Myles?" asked Jack.

"I knew she was dating someone. But she never said who. Myles has changed for the better, I am happy for them. And I am happy for Tara and Bobby. They made it possible for us to be together and I will be forever grateful."

"Me too."

Jack and Sue came to a stop. Jack turned to Sue and said, "I've been wanting to do this the proper way for a long time." He leaned in and gently kissed Sue on the lips. Sue returned the kiss and they deepened into it. Levi watched as his favorite couple shared and showed their passion for each other. People say true love has sparks in these kisses that only the couple can see and feel. But tonight it was for all to see. As they shared their kiss the sky lit up around them with fireworks that someone had set off. When they pulled apart they stared into each others eyes oblivious to the display around them, knowing that this was only the beginning of their lives together, finally.


A/N: Thanks to all who read and reviewed. This story was very theraputic for me and with time I may even continue with Jack and Sue's story of what happens after Sue moves back. I hope everyone enjoyed the story and thanks again. ~Patricia
