This is my first attempt to write fanfiction. But I can't get the idea out of my head. So here it is. My idea how it could take place once Shawn confesses to Juliet that he isn't a real psychic. I really don't know how this rating thing works so I give it a T to be safe.
This story is dedicated to FearTheSpork who suggested I should give it a shot. Thank you.
Chapter 1: The revelation
"Shawn, you have to tell her."
"What?" Shawn was too occupied with the pinball machine to pay much attention to Gus, he was currently only a few seconds away from breaking his old record.
"Juliet. You have to tell her."
"Yes!" Shawn exclaimed as he beat his old high score. "Tell her what? That I broke my old record on the pinball machine? Don't be ridiculous Gus she doesn't want to know that. Or I guess she might, maybe you are right. We are dating now she could be interested in such things."
"Shawn! I'm not talking about the pinball machine."
"Well, Gus, what are you talking about then? You walked in here at the exact moment I broke my old high score, what am I supposed to think you're talking about? Do you think that I could break this high score as well? Ooh I should try it."
"Shawn! What I meant was; you have to tell her that you aren't a real psychic." Gus said, shaking his head at his best friend's absentmindedness.
"Oh, that!" Shawn shrugged. "Well I will."
"When? You have been dating her for five months now, don't you think it's time to tell her about the fact you aren't actually a psychic? Each day you wait just makes it harder you know?"
Of course Gus was right but Shawn wasn't sure how to tell Juliet the truth, so he had been avoiding the conversation. It wasn't one of his smartest moves, he knew that.
"Gus don't be a spoilsport.'' Shawn ignored Gus's question. "I just broke my record. Shouldn't we celebrate that?"
Shawn knew he was hiding behind his humor right now. But the thought of what might happen when he told Juliet scared the crap out of him.
"Shawn, I know it scares the crap out of you. But you really have to tell her and soon."
Some times Shawn suspected that Gus had psychic abilities or maybe he could read minds.
"Are you a mind reader right now?" Shawn acted impressed.
"So you admit that you are scared?'' Gus latched onto the actual phrase, not the tone. ''I'm glad you take it serious now. Because it is."
"Okay, you're right.'' Shawn admitted, sighing in defeat. ''It scares the crap out of me, because I could loose everything. Psych and Juliet. And what scares me most is that I don't care about loosing Psych as much as I do about loosing Juliet. That's crazy right?"
"Shawn that's not crazy. She means a lot to you. At least you've already told her that, right?"
"That you love her!"
"Why are you so confident that I love her?"
"Shawn are you kidding me? I've known you since we were five, of course you love her. Everyone who knows you can see that. And that's the main reason why you should tell her that you aren't a real psychic. She deserves to know the truth and you should trust her ."
"But what do I do when she breaks up with me? I don't want to think about that."
"Well, you will find out when you tell her the truth."
"Yeah, you are right. I have to tell her. Soon."
But he hadn't the slightest idea how he could tell her without loosing her in the progress. He would have to use his charm, that's for sure.
"Shawn where are we going?" Juliet asked.
"First you are going to experience the purest form of freedom."
"What? Oh you mean your motorcycle. I'm not sure about that."
"Come on, Jules! We have been dating for five months and not once have you let me take you out on my bike. You'll like it! Trust me."
"Okay then, let's go."
They drove to the diner where they first met, he thought it might be a good start for the evening. The most important evening of his whole life.
"What did I say?'' Shawn coaxed.''You enjoyed the ride, admit it."
"Yeah, okay, I admit it. It was really a nice experience." Juliet said, a smile spreading across her face.
"Oh Jules, you loved it."
"Where are we, Shawn?'' Juliet asked, changing the subject as she looked around, ''Oh at the diner where we first met. Yeah that was really a interesting meeting." She got this dreamy look on her face.
Well it seemed like it had been a pretty good idea to bring her to the diner.
"Okay, then let's go inside and relive that moment. Shall we?" Shawn offered his arm.
"Of course. I would love too." Juliet accepted his offer, linking her arm through his.
They ordered their meals and then an unusual silence fell over both of them. Shawn knew that it was very untypical of him to be that silent, but he was really nervous right now.
"What's wrong with you?"
"Come on!'' Juliet coaxed, worried about her abnormally silent boyfriend. ''You're so quiet today. You seem nervous? What's the problem?"
Shawn let out a puff of air. ''Okay. I have to tell you something and it's very important."
"Well I should have told you a long time ago but... I can't do this here. We have to get out of here."
Shawn grasped Juliet's hand and dragged her out of the diner.
"Shawn what's wrong? Our meals! We have to pay."
"Here put the helmet on. We have to go somewhere else, and fast."
"What? Shawn, I hope you are going to make sense soon." Juliet said as they took off.
He wasn't sure where to go with her. Finally he ended up at the one place he felt really safe.
"Shawn? What are we doing at the Psych office?" Juliet was puzzled.
"Come on in, Jules. Please sit down. I think you should be sitting when I tell you." He paced up and down in front of her seat, kneading his hands. This was so not the Shawn she knew in front of her.
"Shawn? Would you please stop pacing. I'm really getting dizzy watching you."
"Okay. I can try, but I have to tell you my biggest secret here and I... I have no idea how I should start."
"Shawn, you're really scaring me now." Juliet's voice trembled.
"Okay here's the thing." He crouched down in front of her and took both of her hands in his.
"First of all I want you to know that you mean a lot to me and I don't want to hurt you in any way. It just happened, it wasn't intentional. I was a suspect in a robbery and it was the only thing I could think of to make them believe that I had nothing to do with it."
"Shawn, please stop rambling. What are you trying to say?"
"Jules, I'm trying to say that I... I'm not a real psychic!"
He looked up at her with pleading eyes but her face was blank.
"It's all an act. Well not all of it, it's because of my dad..."
"What? Wait a minute! You aren't psychic?" Juliet was confused.
"No I'm not. I have a photographic memory and my dad forced me as a kid to enhance this ability because he wanted me to be a good cop."
"You are telling me this now? After five years?" Juliet was beginning to get angry.
"Well, it never seemed to be the right time, and I was scared of what you would do. Please Jules, don't be mad?" Shawn pleaded to his angry girlfriend.
"You're kidding, right? You lied to me for five years and now you want me to brush it off like it's nothing?" Juliet wasn't angry anymore, she was livid.
"When you look at it that way, maybe it's not that easy but ..."
"Shawn, maybe I would have understood it when we weren't dating. But we've been a couple for five months now. Did it not for one second occur to you that I had the right to know about this?"
"Yeah, sure but..."
"Stop. I can't talk to you right now. I'm really pissed off. I can't believe you didn't trust me enough to tell me this earlier." Her voice got dangerously low and quiet.
"Jules, please." Shawn pleaded.
"No, Shawn. I have to go, I have to be alone right now. And don't come after me. Not this time. I'll call you when I'm ready to talk about it."
"Jules, please don't go."
But she turned around and walked out of the door. He was still kneeling on the floor in the same position as he had been during the whole revelation, he couldn't believe it. She'd left. He'd destroyed everything. He had to find a way to make it right again, somehow. He hadn't the slightest idea how right now. But he would come up with something. He had to.
Because he couldn't imagine a life without Juliet.
Okay, that's it. I hope you like it. I know it's pretty sad at the end. Don't kill me. But I don't think I'm done with this story. I've already have something in mind with Gus and maybe Henry. We will see.
Reviews would be nice especially since it's my first attempt. But be gentle. :)
