A/N: Again, no hate against Danneel. This is fiction!
Danneel had given Jensen his ultimatum, one he had predicted would be a choice he would have to make anyway, and his heart chose before his brain could intervene.
“She needs me. I’m sorry, let’s talk about this later.” He really was sorry it had to come to this, but despite his guilt, he turned again to leave.
“You’re in love with her, aren’t you?” Those words stung his ears as the silence made the sentence sound like water being dropped onto a burning stove. He jerked as if he had been scalded by the sizzle. What was he supposed to respond with? ‘Yes, so much more than anyone I’ve ever met.’ No, of course not. Or how about, ‘No, we’re just close friends.’? Well, he already tried that, and look how it turned out. There really wasn’t a good answer for him to give her. If he said no, the lies would just continue, and he needed them to stop; He was tired of lying. If he said yes, he’d only hurt her, which was something that, regardless of all that’s happened, he really didn’t want to do. So, he gave her the best answer he could; nothing.
