This is something….. Basically it’s me wanting to write an AU where Jack never kissed Bitty and went on with his life and how they still found their way back to each other. I’ve been taking bits and pieces of this fic and putting them in different fics so there are a ton of holes but I keep thinking about it.
The context for this is if Jack went up to visit his parents over the summer and he invited the team up because why the hell not????? It’s a WIP. I don’t have it all figured out yet.
Ransom and Holster jump at the same time and the splash it creates reaches Alicia on the patio chair. She sighs and stands.
“I’m so happy you brought the boys with you,” she says dryly but she ruffles Jack’s hair as she goes by.
Jack waits a moment and follows her.
He closes the door behind him and she looks up with a smile from where she’s pouring more chips into a bowl.
“I’m glad Eric could come. Your father mentioned the two of you had some issues? Is that all worked out now? He seems pretty comfortable around you.”
“I think I could be in love with him.”
There’s dead air in the kitchen but beyond the sliding doors the world rages on.
