AN: Just a little something I thought up to distract from my impending uni exams. Forgive me for the quality (or lack thereof). First Eureka fanfic ever :) Also, forgive me for the OOCness of it all.
Brighter than the sun.
"See you around, Jack."
They say you disintegrated. That you broke apart into millions of tiny particles and disappeared. That you were gone. Gone for good. They're all brilliant scientists and I'm not, so who am I to argue.
All I see when I think about the last time I saw you is stars. Millions upon millions of bright, little stars. All a part of you and yet, all unique in their own way.
I never mentioned it to anybody and nobody ever asked but, there was one scientific pursuit that I always excelled at. Astronomy was my thing. The stars were my guide. They always made sense. They never failed me. They were always there, unwavering in their brightness. Their intention to always remain clear.
I lost faith in my stars after what happened with Abby. Nothing made sense and I couldn't see the stars properly.
Then I came to Eureka.
When I saw you for the first time you were shining brighter than any star I had ever seen before. It didn't take long for me to realise that it was just your enormous ego. But it didn't matter, the damage had been done. The stars were back.
I see stars whenever I think of you.
One night, about three weeks after you 'disintegrated', I went out to look at the stars. I noticed something odd, something strange.
I see you, Nathan.
I see you.
