AN: Imagine, Abby cheated on Brody with Danny, Richie didn't interfere for once. Brody breaks up with Abby. This is set 6 weeks after Abby sleeps with Danny and the breakup and 5 months after Brody and Abby start their "not" relationship (after Richie finds out about them). This is kind of in response to a fic by GoofyGal2008 titled Déjà vu All Over Again. It's been on my mind since I read it. Unfortunately, I DO NOT own Against the Wall, Abby, Richie, Danny (they can keep him), Brody or any of the other characters, nor do I own the story Déjà vu All Over Again by GoofyGal2008. Read and review please.

PS: Warning, some spoilers.

Pulling my jacket tighter around me as I exit the warm doctor's office and step onto the crowed sidewalk. Within seconds my numb body registers the blistering cold, and here I thought I would never feel anything again after the doctor confirmed my fears. So lost in thought, I don't even register my name being called until a hand grabs me on the shoulder.

"Richie! Oh hey, what are you doing here?" I ask looking over to see the cop car parked on the curb, Brody sitting in the driver's seat.

Concerned, he looks at me, "You okay? I called your name like a million times? Hell, Brody even honked the horn, what's on your mind?"

"Nothing, I'm fine," I lied shrugging it off.

"You sure," he asks skeptical. Nodding, he seems placated, "Well hop in, well give you a lift before you freeze out here."

"I'm fine, really, don't worry about me, I kind of like the cold, makes everything numb." Giving him a hug, I turn and continue down the street to my apartment. I make sure I am a good block away before I let the tears fall.
