Chapter 8

Sue woke up alone in the bed –Please don't tell me I was dreaming..- then gasped when she realized that there was her breakfast near the pillow and a note, -please let it be from Jack..-

Sue smiled, she wasn't dreaming…well she was dreaming about her and Jack together, but she was dreaming with her eyes open

Hi beautiful, me and the wonder dog are taking a walk and chat (again) about you..I can't wait to have you in my arms .

This are the lyrics of the song of yesterday, hope you like it, because is what I feel when I look at you. I love you. J xoxo

Ps: Levi said woof, I think it means Good morning or something like that..

Her eyes, her eyes, make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair, falls perfectly without her trying
She's so beautiful, and I tell her every day

Yeah, I know, I know, when I compliment her she won't believe me
And it's so, it's so, sad to think that she don't see what I see
But every time she asks me do I look ok, I say

When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Because girl you're amazing, just the way you are
Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she let me
Her laugh, her laugh, she hates but I think it's so sexy
She's so beautiful, and I tell her every day

Oh, you know, you know, you know, I'd never ask you to change
If perfect's what you're searching for then just stay the same
So, don't even bother asking if you look ok
You know I'll say

When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Because girl you're amazing, just the way you are
The way you are, the way you are
Girl you're amazing, just the way you are

When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Cause girl you're amazing, just the way you are.

Sue smiled, she loved the lyrics of that song, and loved Jack for choosing that song. Sue went to take a shower and left the breakfast where it was, wanted to wait Jack and have breakfast together.

A few minutes later Jack came into the room, sat down on the bed and near the breakfast found a note to him, smiled, he didn't expect a note or a response to his note.

Hi Marshmallow man (this will be your new nickname..just kidding ), I hope you don't mind, but I didn't touch anything about the breakfast that you prepared for me (by the way, thank you, I didn't expect and didn't expect even the note, ok I digress, sorry) I wanted to wait you and have breakfast together, I can't wait to be in your arms. You must be wondering if I liked the song..

The truth is no... I don't like it

I love it... and I love you even more for choosing that song

I know we made a promise yesterday to keep in check the boiling, excitations, etc but.. I'm in the shower, if you want to reach me, the door isn't locked.

I love you.

Jack had an idiotic smile on his face, he looked up and saw Sue in front of the door's bathroom with a 'towel around herself and a shy smile on her face.

"Hi.." said Sue


" You don't even give me a kiss of good morning if I wear that?!"

"I had only taken a moment to look at you.." he approached her and stroked her arms "Good morning beautiful.." kissing her softly

"Now that's a very good morning.." smiling

"Do you mind wearing something..other than this?"

Sue smiled shyly "Yes.. I had to take only one thing.. it bother you so much to see me dressed like that?"

"No..I- I didn't say that…And you know it.."

"Jack..I'm just kidding.."

"I's just.. I'm serious about the promise that I would keep ... I want both to keep that promise... I want our relationship works.."

"I also want our relationship works.."

"Good…now would you dress with something…please.."

"I'll be right back.."


Sue left the bathroom 5 minutes later

"Hey, are you okay?"

"Yes, everything ok.."

"So why you look so sad?"

Jack smiled and hugged Sue "De just call me and told me that I have to go to Washington.. He said there's a meeting with those on the upper floors"



"day after tomorrow?!"

Jack nodded "We can think about that later, now you have to explain why you were crying last night.."

Sue sighed "Last night, when you went to help my father, Katherine and her sisters approached, they said terrible things about you. That you don't love me seriously, you said it because you're my best friend and as such, you do it because you know I'm sad because no man wants me, she said I can never have children, because no man wants me.. " she started to cry "I was alone, my cousins and your sister weren't there, I was alone, except Levi, I think he broke her pantyhose with his nails.. then I went into the kitchen, came Carl, a friend of Katherine, I couldn't understand what he was saying, I cried and I didn't understand what he was saying, he was drunk, he always has been, then he started to touch me, I told him to stop, at the end I gave a knee and I got in the bedroom.."

"Sue I'm so sorry, I promised that I would be at your side throughout the evening and.."

"It's not your fault.."

"They are stupid Sue, I love you for 3 years, 3 endless years, and it happens that I am your best friend and I don't want no other man can love you like I do, men who would like to be with a woman as wonderful as you are, there are, there are too many.. I also know that one day you will be a mother ... you'll be a wonderful mother, and the man who marries you will be very lucky.."

"How do you know that?"

"Because…" Jack sighed "My phone.."

Sue smiled "Don't worry, reply.."

"I'm sorry.." kissing her nose "Hi Bobby..yes you have perfect timing.."

"Hi mate, yes I'm sorry, I know you're practically with the heart in the sugar, at least from what I understand…I just wanted to say that I'll go to the meeting.."

"Are you sure mate?!"

"Yes, don't worry, I spoke with De and said that there are no problems, so enjoy these last days of vacation with your Bella in your arms.."

Jack chuckled "I will Crash.."

"Say hello to Sue and her wonder dog.."

"Of course..wait" said to Bobby, then to Sue –Honey, Bobby say Hi…-

"Hi Bobby..Merry Christmas.."

"Hi Sheila, Merry Christmas you too.."

Jack said to Sue what Bobby had replied "Mate, I owe you one.."

"Yes, you owe..Just the wedding invitation and we're even.."

"Uh…Bye Bobby.."

Bobby chuckled "Bye chicken.."

"So why do you owe to Bobby? You look so happy in this moment.."

Jack kissed her softly "He replaces me at the meeting…"

"Really?" said enthusiastic

"Yes…which means I'll still have between your feet.."

"As long as you're in my bed, I don't mind having you between my feet…"

"Come here sweetie.." embracing her and showing the landscape outside "It's snowing.."

Sue sighed and smiled, leaning on Jack's chest

Jack watched her, she was beautiful, then caught her attention "You know what? This Christmas was wonderful.. Better than any dream I ever had.."

Sue smiled and clutched still closer to him "Jack?"


"I know it sounds stupid, but.. after lunch can we go for a walk in the snow? has been so long since I make a snowman.."

Jack smiled and signed –Of course..-

After a few days Sue and Jack were in their respective rooms preparing the luggage, Levi came to the door wagging his tail

"Come in.."

Sue smiled when he saw Jack peeping out from the door "Hey .."

"Hey honey.. uhm.. I think it's something that doesn't belong to me.. at least not in that way.." chuckling Jack gave her, her yellow lingerie


"I think I love yellow..from this moment.."

Sue smiled "I can't believe we're going back home, I don't know if I'll like come back to reality.."

"I know.. me know sleep together, wake up together, walking Levi together, take a shower together, make and eat breakfast together.. I will miss all that" sighing

"I will miss all of this.." with tears in her eyes

Jack smiled sweetly "Hey honey..don't cry..see the positive side…I will be more overprotective.."

Sue chuckled "That's why I was crying.."

"I've made something I hope you'll like it.." blushing "It's know something..coupley.."

" is a word?"

"It is…from now.."

Sue smiled " what is it?"

"Wait here.. 5 minutes and I'll be back.."


"I hope you'll like it.." giving her a framed photo

Sue smiled and blushed "'s beautiful..I- I love it.." kissing him slowly

"And I love you Miss Thomas.."

An hour later, after saying goodbye to their parents, they left for Washington

Jack gave a quick look at Sue and noticed that she was looking at him with a dreamy look

"Hey, what's that look totally dreamy?"

Sue blushed "Oh..I just…I- I was remembering when we..made the backseat.. I was..just daydreaming.. I think…"

"Sue.. you know.." sigh

Sue sighed "I know, I know, the promise we made.. it's just so frustrating.."

"I know.. At first it seemed a sensible idea, now... I don't know.."

After 4 hours Jack left Sue at home

"How about I go with you and Wonderdog for a walk?"

Sue smiled "What do you say buddy?" Levi barked

"What did he say?"

"He said that for him is good.."

"And Wonder woman what says?"

"I wouldn't mind a walk with Mr overprotective…" winking

"So I was thinking about how tell the guys about our relationship.."


"Invite them to dinner.. unless you want to say to Lucy before.."

"You want to tell Bobby before?"

"I think so.. you going to tell Lucy?"

"You know I can't hide anything from her, for her I'm like an open book.. and also will be hurt if she finds out along with the others.. I think.."

"I think she will notice.. your eyes are brighter than usual.." caressing her face

"Just because a special agent made me feel very very special this Christmas.."

"Honey.. You are already very special.. you don't realize you were.. but you are.. you are very very very special.." kissing her nose

Sue smiled "I have to go home honey.."

Jack sighed "I'll see you tomorrow.. I'll pick you to have breakfast together?"

"Perfect.. I can't wait.." kissing him slowly "Goodnight.."

" 'Night sweety.. I love you.."

"I love you too..Bye.."

"Lucy.. I'm home…"

"Hey Sue.. Hi buddy" hugging Sue gently and then Levi "How are you? How's your Christmas?"

"I'm fine..and my Christmas went..not so bad.. how's your Christmas?"

"Not so bad.." biting her lower lip

"Are you okay Luc?"

"I know you just got back .. and I probably shouldn't ruin your back..."

"Luc what's going on?! You're making me worry.."

"I knew that Jack has spent Christmas with a woman, he introduced her to his parents.." said in one breath

"! What should I do? I hope he is happy.."

"What?! He probably has known in some seedy bar, and now he seems in love..deeply in love.."

"Well I don't think they are known in some seedy bar.."

"How do you know that?"

"I don't go to seedy bars Lucy.." biting her lower lip

"But… just said you don't go to seedy bars.. Tell me that is what I think I've understood.."

"Well.. I don't know.. but if you have understood that me and Jack are finally together…as a's a yes.."

"I have to sit down… you and Jack together.. O MY GOD!"

Sue chuckled "Are you okay?"

"More than okay.. okay..tell me everything.."

"Well.." Sue began to tell

"Why you seem so sad?"

"I don't know Lucy... I love him.. I love him so much, the problem is that if Ted will allow us to stay in the same unit.. and I don't think either of us wants to break the team.. I don't know if it's a serious relationship.. "

"He tried to say something.. about your relationship?"

"He tried.. 2 times actually.."

"What did he said?"

"The first time my cousin Lucy said in front of him - don't you get married without me? –"

"And Jack?"

"Jack blushed and then said he was going to help my father.."

"The second time?"

"I was telling him of what had happened with my neighbors.. and he said that - one day you will be mom, a great mom and the man who marry you will be very lucky..- I asked him how could he be so sure and he said –Because..- "

"Because?" Lucy with bright eyes and filled with hope

"He never finished that thought, Bobby has called him on the cellphone.."

Lucy sighed "Oh no… and then you no longer talk about?"

Sue shook her head "I don't know what to do Luc.. I love him so much and I feel bad about losing him.."

"Hey, he loves you, I don't know what to advise you, I would say only, see how it goes your relationship.."

"You're right.. I'll show you the card and the framed picture that he gave me.."

"He dedicated a song to you?"

"Well I wouldn't say dedicated.. he just said that's what he feels when he looks at me.."

"And the picture.. is fantastic.. the two of you in the middle of the snow, lost in a romantic kiss..."

Sue blushed "It was romantic.."

"This necklace?"

"It's a gift from Jack.."

"Sue it's beautiful.. Oh oh…"


"It's from Tiffany Sue.."

"Yeah I know.. will cost a fortune.. Also gave me a necklace, like the ring.."

"Wow.. Ok.. I'm going to take a shower, then go to bed..see you tomorrow?"

"Umm..yes, I think, Jack will pick me up tomorrow morning, we go for breakfast together.."

Lucy chuckled


"You can't help to stay away from each other, your blackberry is vibrating, goodnight.. "

Sue blushed "Night Luc…"


"Hey honey.."

"Hey.. are you okay?"

"No..not really.."

"Cannot sleep?"

"No.. I'm in bed.. that I turn around and trying to get to sleep.."

Sue chuckled

"Hey don't laugh at me.. you are dependence, a good dependence.."

"I'm sorry, I wasn't laughing at you.. I just.. found something that isn't mine.."

"What you have found?"

"Wait.. You can turn on the PC and webcam?"

"Umm..okay.. I don't know why but I know I'll regret of turning on the webcam.."

"Aww come on.. You don't trust me?"

"Right now?! Not so much.."

Jack turned on the webcam and smiled

"So you like it?"

"My shirt.."

"Yes..and your boxer.."

"Oh no.. those are my favorites.."

"Now I understand why they are soft and comfortable.. do you mind if I keep them for the night"

"You don't know what I want to be that shirt right now.." sighing

Sue chuckled "Oh poor Jackie.."

Jack smiled "You spoke with Lucy?"

"Yep…" chuckling


"She began the speech by saying that she knew I had just come back and she didn't want to ruin the day.. at the end she said that she knew that you had spent Christmas with a woman, and that you had presented to your parents.. She said that you had probably know that girl to a bar and you looked in love, but maybe it's just a passing thing.."

Jack chuckled "Well I hope it isn't a passing thing, I want a serious relationship honey.."

"I too.."

"You still have doubts about us..don't you?"

Sue bit her lower lip "Some doubts.."

"About us or about the work?"


"Okay.. Honey about the work tomorrow I'm going to talk to Garrett.. for the two of us I'm in this relationship for a long time.. if you want me of course.. I know that I do not have much timing of saying thing and say all this through a webcam is not cute, but you're just pretend that I am there..with you.."

"I am also in this relationship for a long time.. since I'm wearing your clothes, it isn't difficult to pretend that you're here.."

Jack smiled "Honey, remember the dinner we were going to do with the guys?"


"What if tomorrow we all go out to lunch and we tell them.. I would like to have you all to myself for dinner..if that's okay with you, Miss Thomas"

"Vote for lunch with the guys and dinner with you honey.."

Jack smiled sweetly "That's my girl.. Hon.. I think we'll better go to bed.."

"'re right..See you tomorrow.. we still have plans for breakfast together, right?"

"Yes, we do.. Can't wait.. Goodnight my love.."

Sue smiled "Goodnight hon.."
