“Are you still awake?” You asked walking into the living room.
It was completely dark besides for the tv which was on low. Jax had stayed the night only because you had thought someone had been messing around outside. You could have got your brother Opie to stay, but he was home and trying to save his marriage with Donna.
“Did you hear something?” He said getting up from the couch.
“No. I just.. I’m sorry I’ll let you get back to sleep. It’s silly.” You said trying not to stare at his chest.
You had a crush on Jax since you were little, but both of you had gone different ways and he was in love with Tara and then when she left it was always some girl.
Turning to leave he asked you.
“It’s not silly. What is it?”
“I had another nightmare and it scared me. Last time I had one I was dating Jason and feeling him next to me helped.”
Jax and Opie hated your last boyfriend. You couldn’t ever figure out why, but it didn’t matter he was long gone and you were still here in the moment having another nightmare.
Walking over to you he grabbed your hand and walked back to the bedroom. Pulling the blanket back you climbed in. Turning your lamp off he climbed in with you. Holding his arm out you cuddled up to his chest. Immediately you felt safe and sleepy.
“Thank you Jax. Maybe I should get a pet.”
“Maybe I should stay over every night.” He said kissing the top of your head.
You had fallen a sleep with a smile on your face and your arm on his chest. Jax laid awake knowing he was home and Jason wouldn’t be welcomed back.
There was a lump in your throat, one you couldn’t seem to swallow, he was so…sincere, and it pained you even more to hear the breaking in his voice. Why? Why the sudden turn in emotions? Why was he so hell bent on you and why were you so cruel to him? Me? Cruel to him? With all the negative thinking, something in the back of your mind was tugged, as if there were a shift in the Force calling out to you…begging you to remember something you couldn’t. “I’m sorry. I thought what I did to you was for your own good…but seeing as how it wasn’t…I regret my actions.”
