It all started with a single dinner. And then another one and after that it was a lunch and a dinner. The first kiss, the first night and without noticing she fell for him. It was so easy, everything happened smoothly, no difficulties. A week, a moth and Teresa somehow stopped counting. It was so usual for her to be with him, that she found herself wondering how she lived without him.

David. Lisbon had to smile when she thought about him. He was nice, smart, funny…every girl's dream. And she had him! She still couldn't believe it…

Of course Jane was the first to notice that something was up. He was being so ridiculous! He teased her all day until finally she admitted. Admitted? No, there was nothing to admit. She didn't have to explain anything. Especially not to him, but it still felt like that…

VanPelt was just VanPelt, she smiled and reassured Lisbon that she was happy for her. Rigsby and Cho stayed silent. Very professional…Pity that Lisbon knew so well that they were whispering about her like old gossiping women.

But she didn't mind it. Finally she was happy with this wonderful man.

David. He was so nice and smart…He was even funny…Why couldn't he be a jerk? Patrick Jane scowled at his thought. He was angry and he hated that guy.

One single night, it was one ball he missed. One time when he decided to stay home. And of course someone had to notice Lisbon. He could have known better…

And she went on a date with him…Sure she did, he was enchanting, and handsome…

And from then, she was not the same. Just little differences, small changes. One step at the time. And then, after 3 months she was a different person. Still the Lisbon he knew but somehow a different edition. It was like his friend Lisbon turned into someone's girlfriend. Actually that happened, but he wasn't able to accept it. He didn't want to accept it…

She started to go home earlier to be with him. She left the paperwork to the next day. She never shouted his head off anymore, she just shot him a sad glare but left it alone. She started to wore different clothes and she used more make-up. He had to admit she was quite gorgeous but he felt so jealous when David came to pick her up, or when she wore a necklace he gave her…

She was happy, that was obvious and he wanted her to be happy. But it was so hard to see her being happy with someone else! He wanted to be the one who makes her happy!

He could have been that one…If he went to that ball…But she was really mad at him that day. He wouldn't dare to ask her out!

And he has been telling himself that it's all okay. That her happiness was the most important and he couldn't be so selfish. But then, the other day he caught something on her face. Until then he only saw pure happiness and love but this was new. This was a glimpse of the old Lisbon. It disappeared quickly but made his heart flutter. She was still the same she just repressed it, for David…

He let out a small snort. Your time is up, my friend! He thought and he smiled. Maybe it was his turn?

….

On the next Monday Lisbon entered the bullpen with a smile on her face. A shiny, bright morning smile. Since she was with David it was usual for her to always smile, even on a Monday morning. She wore a light blue shirt and jeans.

„Good morning Boss!" Rigsby greeted her.

„Hi Rigsby!" she beamed and made her way to her office.

Jane was already there, waiting for her. She smiled at him too and sat behind her desk.

„Good morning sunshine!" Patrick greeted her with a big smile and for a moment he forgot about his plan. She smiling at him in the morning was something that worth to enjoy for a minute.

„Morning Jane! How was your weekend?" she aked politely. She arranged her things on the table and looked at him.

„Nice, yours?" he stood up from her couch and walked to the desk. He sat down into a chair and put his head into his hands, waiting for her answer.

„Well, David and I went …" she started but he was lost. Her smile made his heart beat faster and broke into little pieces at the same time. Her sparkling eyes were so relaxed he wanted to kick his own ass for even having an eye to see it. Her voice was so fresh he knew without listening to her words that she had a wonderful time. David made her happy again…

He cleared his mind by running through his plan again. He was going to make her realize how much she changed for David. Maybe that will do something…She never was one who changed for men…

She let out a small laugh at some part of her story. Jane smiled automatically with her but his thoughts were elsewhere. She was genuenly happy. He couldn't take that away from her. He sighed and tried to concentrate back on her words.

„Then he said 'No you can't feed the fish!' and we were like 'Hey! This is a public park with a public lake..' but the guard was so stubborn. Actually, kind of like you…" she smiled. Jane felt an urge to reach out, cup her face into his hands and tell her how beautiful she looked.

And he wasn't sure how she would react anymore…That was his biggest problem! Before David he could be sure that he had two choices. One, she would punch him in the face for telling something like that. And two, she would blush crazily and tell him to leave her alone with his stupidness. But now…He wasn't sure anymore…Maybe she would say 'Thanks' or she would fire him.

Patrick closed his eyes and leaned back in his chair. Lisbon stopped her story and now silence filled the room. He heard that she began her daily work but he refused to open his eyes. This way he could imagine that she was still the same old Lisbon. He was waiting for her to demand his leaving but she didn't say a word. She picked up a pen and started writing. He heard the scratching of the pen, her small sigh and he finally opened his eyes.

He had to decide whick one was more important, her happiness or his selfisness…
