I Just Need Time - Ch. 12~ Jesse ~
When we got back Amy stared at us as we passed, a confused look on her face. I ignored her going into the barn. Rosa and I untacked and groomed the horses, putting them away. I looked at her and smiled "see you tomorrow?"
She nodded "yeah, see you" she said and went outside and drove away.
I went outside and Amy went up to me.
"What Amy?" I asked.
"Why Is your shirt wet?"
"Went to the waterfall. She had a breakdown."
"and let me guess you 'comforted' her."
"Yeah. I did." I crossed my arms wondering where she was going with this.
"Your smiling and laughing a lot" she pointed out.
"You've been doingn that ever since you talked to her."
"You like her."
I glanced around me quickly, no one was in sight. Looking back at Amy a snarl tore from my throat. And flames errupted from the ground, surrounding me. I went into the underworld. The hot familier territory twisting and winding around me. A volcano nearby errupted. And I smiled "Hell can be a wonderful place." my smil

I watched Jesse. Waiting for his next question. My long wavy blonde hair fanned out around my head in the grass. When he had asked about Daniel, the numbed pain resurfaced. Stronger than ever. My heart tearing itself to shreds again. I closed my eyes to stop the tears.
Still hearing nothing. I was shocked when I felt firm arms around my waist. I opened my eyes, surprised to find myself sitting in Jesse's lap. His arms around my waist. I closed my eyes, pressing my head against his chest. Throwing my arms around his neck. Breathing slightly ragged as I held back the tears.
I was guessing he hadn't expected this reaction from me. But I couldn't be sure.
I just heard him murmer "It's okay."
I was shocked to hear him be so understanding. I couldn't hold back the tears any longer. Sobs shook me. I kept my face against Jesse's chest, kept my arms around his neck. He kept murmmering soothingly to me.
I felt horrible. When I got the tears to stop and the sobs down so they just ba

I went quiet at that last scentence. 'I have no reason to live anymore.' Before she had a time to react. I had turned around to face her. Pushed her back against the grass. One hand on either side of her shoulders. Looking at her bewildered crystal blue eyes.
"your wrong about that?"
"a-about what?" She was still too stunned from my quick movements.
"That you have no reason to live anymore."
She sighed, trying to sit up. I didn't let her. She glared at me but spoke. "It's true. He was my whole life."
"Was not. What about your friends, family?"
"Friends, what friends?"
I glared at her and started to growl. I saw a flicker of unease flash across her face, she gently touched a hand to mine. The growl died in my throat as I looked at our two hands. Hers thin and delicate, mine longer, and a bit thicker.
"Fine. There's you and Amy. But what other friends do I have?"
"What about those people you always sit by?"
"oh. Well there's them."
"your family?" I pressed.
"My parents are divo

I went and got Belle. The flashy dark brown mare. Tacking her up as I went outside. Hesitating a second as i saw Jesse warming up. But Amy came up beside me with a gray gelding named Bullet.
"The arena next to where he and Devil are practicing" She told me.
I walked beside her, barley paying attention. "That's Devil?" I had seen the firey stallion in the barn, but i was too nervous to ever try to go up to him.
Amy nodded "and rightly named. He suits Jesse's attitude"
"I don't think Jesse seems like a devil."
"more like a demon in his case."
"I don't think he's like a demon either."
"did you hear him play during music?"
"yeah. I liked the music though. It was haunting in a alluring sort of way."
She stared at me for a moment before going to the arena, tighting Bullet's girth and mounting. I sighed doing the same with Belle. I watched Jesse for a moment.
He brought Devil to a sudden stop. Looking at me for a minute, stunned i'm guessing. Before he shook his head and went ba
