A/N: As always, I don't own anything. I heard this song the other day and immediately thought of this movie. So here's the next chapter :)

Catherine waited until she saw the word 'boarding' listed next to Jackie's flight before she left the airport. She hated this part. The part where she takes the person she loves to the airport and has to say goodbye, even if it is only for a short time. Luckily, Jackie was only going to be gone for about two weeks, but that thought wasn't comforting at the moment. The two loved spending time together and any time apart was always hard. Jackie had to fly back to L.A to do a couple interviews for the release of her Neptune DVD, she was hesitant at first, but her manager convinced her. Catherine didn't say much, just that she would miss her. She wanted to be supportive of her girlfriend. After their first big fight when Jackie took the movie role, they tried their best to communicate everything, even if it meant being brutally honest. Neither of them wanted another fight like the one they had early in their relationship. They had many long nights of talking about anything and everything, nights where Catherine ended up in tears because she was worried about Jackie leaving for L.A and never coming back. Nights where Jackie ended up in tears because she felt that Catherine just didn't understand the part of herself that she always left in L.A. But they always managed to work through it all and come through it stronger than ever. As Catherine started to drive away from the airport and head home, she decided to turn the radio on.

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

It's not warm when she's away

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

She always gone too long anytime she goes away

Wonder this time where she's gone

Wonder if she's gone to stay

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

This house just ain't no home anytime she goes away

Hey, I oughta leave the young thing alone

But ain't no sunshine when she's gone

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

Only darkness everyday
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

This house just ain't no home

Anytime she goes away

She thought about all the times the two of them would be snuggled on the couch, sitting in comfortable silence. They both loved to read and would sit for hours just sipping wine and reading. Ethan had taken to Jackie right away and even he got a little sad when Jackie would leave. Catherine laughed a bit at the line, 'Hey, I oughta leave the young thing alone.' From the first time she saw Jackie in Professor Hect's office, she knew that she wanted to be with her. At first, she figured it would be just like everyone else, but after their first night together, she knew that Jackie was so different from anyone else she had ever been with. Which is why she knew that she would risk anything, including her job, to be with her. Jackie would only be gone a couple weeks, and Catherine knew that they could Skype, text and chat every day. She certainly had plenty of things to keep her busy. She was teaching a new class in the fall and she need desperately to work on her syllabus and course guide since the new semester was starting in less than a month. Before she would know it, she would be making the drive back to the airport and Jackie would fly into her arms and things would go back to normal, for a while anyway.

About half way back home it started to rain. "Ain't no sunshine sure is right" Catherine said as she turned on her windshield wipers
