It took me forever to write this chapter. I wanted it to be just right, but finally I just realized that I was satisfied with what I had and was just postponing the final chapter trying to live up to my own expectations! I did my best and I really hope that you have enjoyed my story, About A Boy and A Girl. Love you all! -Katie
I don't own Jimmy.
The sun was shining and the birds were chirping. She inhaled, savoring the sweet taste of the warm breeze.
After a long winter, spring had finally come to Retroville.
With a smile she took off the heels was currently she was wearing to walk barefoot in the grass. It tickled her ankles as she walked along humming a familiar tune to herself. She stepped carefully around the fresh puddles and the spots of mud. As the tune she was humming reached its climax she spun in circles.
Just then she saw her destination and she instantly stopped. Her eyes began to water as she advanced towards the headstone. NEUTRON was elegantly inscribed on the top along with his insignia.
"Hello," she whispered. "I'm just here to tell you that graduation just wasn't the same without you smiling back at me. Also, Jack proposed! He even got done on one knee and everything. I know you always said I'd never find a boy good enough, but he's perfect for me. He's such a smart ass, you'd really like him. He's a writer, did I tell you that? He did a piece a few months ago about you. The President wrote me a letter commemorating your immense achievements and now there's even talk of a scholarship at Pomona in your honor. Anyway, I wanted to thank you for encouraging me to go to Brown, even though we both know you wanted me to go to Pomona. You paid for most of my tuition with your saved money; you were always way too generous."
"I brought you something," she said as she lowered a single white flower on the ground. She paused for a moment trying to think of what else she wanted to say.
Just then a warm arm slid around her waist.
"Don't worry," she whispered. "I'm almost done."
"That's okay, I'm in no rush," Jack whispered.
"Thank you for doing this with me," she kissed her husband's neck softly and he smiled.
"I've heard you talk about him so much," he responded. "I wanted to meet him myself."
After a moment of silence she bent down to gently kiss the cool marble.
"I love you and miss you. I'll be back soon."
Just as they had turned away from the graves, she thought she heard a soft whisper of her name from behind her. Instantly, she turned to cast one last glance back at the Oak tree. Sitting under the branches sat a young boy and a girl laughing as they shared secret kisses.
As the gentle summer breeze blew past her, the vision disappeared. She realized that Jack was studying her with a concerned look.
"Addie, are you all right?"
She nodded and took his arm.
"Never better," she responded.
As they walked back towards the car she smiled to herself.
Her grandparents were a true love story. Not a fairytale, a dream, but two flesh and blood people geniunely in love. Theirs was a story to tell.
Zephyr- a light, warming breeze.
A Boy and A Girl
Stretched out on the grass
a boy and a girl
Savoring their oranges,
giving their kisses,
lips exchanging foam.
Stretched out on the beach
a boy and a girl.
Savoring their limes,
giving their kisses.
like clouds exchanging foam.
Stretched out underground,
a boy and a girl.
A/N: That's a beauitful song, and I think it expresses well what a love story is. Who is this boy and this girl? Who were they? How did they come to fall in love? I love fairytales, but real love stories are even more beautiful because they give us hope. I realize that this is also, esentially, a fairytale, but there are those real stories you know. Of two people, flesh and blood people really in love whose stories go on and on.
Now for the thanks section which will be long, you have been warned.
Thank you VERY much to my beloved friend, FutureAirbender18. Kristen, you have been such a kind and loving friend to me, and you probably the most avid fan I've had in a LONG time. :) *HUGS*
Thank you to Genseeker25, whose reviews made me glow because they were filled with praise I really don't deserve. :) Thank you! You are so sweet! :D :D
Thanks to Athenaafrodite, who filled me up with such praise I still blush when I read your reviews! Your encouragement kept me going.
Thanks to Katsumara, who also reviewed rather religously. :)
Thanks to MissCharlotteAwesome, for being so kind!
Thanks to RomanceandMusicals, who has reviewed almost every single JN story I've written since the dawn of time. 3
Thanks to DiceRox09, hopefully your boy troubles are getting better!
Thanks to MysticLady3, for reviewing almost every chapter as well.
Thanks again to AntiqueDreams, for letting me use her picture. Mara, you rock. :)
Thanks to BlueLion, who specifically told me that she was NOT a JN fan, but she told me that my chapter was beautiful. It's always a good sign when you can write characters so that they are relatable even to people who are NOT fans of a show. That was SOOO encouraging.
I could go ON and ON and on... You are all wonderful and without you, yes you the person reading this right now, this story could never have happened. Honestly, I was NOT expecting such a good reaction. :) I have been honored and blessed by all the wonderful and kind things you have said. Hopefully, you know how much you mean to me. How much every review makes me smile. They are my air.
Anyway, enough of me blabbering. See you soon!
Much love, -Katie
