TITLE; The Moment You Realise

CHARACTERS; Jackson/April
RATING: T

The words had barely left his mouth before he regretted them.

April smiled, "Good, that's great!"

Jackson felt it like a stab in the chest. It was great that he was leaving? No, it wasn't a stab; it was like hit gut just bottomed out. "Yeah…" then he got angry. "I feel sick by the way. Sick to leave here, to leave you. But I'm glad you're so freaking happy about it."

April flushed and she yelled at him, but he couldn't hear her. All the could perceive was how beautiful she was. How much he yearned for her touch, her taste, her... everything.

"I loved having sex with you. You made me feel things…you changed me Jackson. And I loved that. But I hate that I'm not a virgin for the man I'm going to marry -"

Her lips were so red.

"-So for one night I'm just going to forget all about that. And I'm gonna try, I'm gonna try to be happy. I'm happy tonight. I'm going to be happy Jackson, because this is a happy time and we should be celebrating. Okay? So can you please just wipe that freaking frown off your face and be happy with me?"

Jackson did hear her now. Be happy with her? The words slipped out before he even knew what he'd said. But even as they floated through the air, he knew it was what he wanted.

"Marry me."


A/N; I've listed is as a complete oneshot because it has a sort of artistic quality like this. But I may continue it if you want to know what happens...
