TCBU chapter 6.  

"...a whole lot more than just friends."

To say the following morning was awkward would be quite an understatement. Ronnie refused to talk to me; fuck, he refused to so much as look at me. I knew he felt ashamed for what happened the previous night; I also knew that I should probably talk to him.

Which brings us to this moment; we’re the only two on the bus (God knows where everyone else is off to.) and I’m sitting directly across from him, staring at him fixedly; trying to contemplate just the right thing to say. But of course, nothing is coming to mind.

He looks up at me inquiringly, he opens his mouth to say something and I swallow hard. “What are you looking at?” He asks bitterly.

Oh right, I was staring at him a bit expectantly. “Uh…um, nothing. I was just thinking.” I explain with a weak smile. He continues to glare at me for a moment, before sighing and rolling his eyes.

“Listen what you saw last night…” He trails off, looking away nervously.

“Don’t even worry about it man. It was stupid, you were probably just curious to see what it was about and everything. I’m just really sorry for being a jerk all this time.” I apologize wholeheartedly.

He doesn’t reply, just sits there staring at his hands, which are playing anxiously with the hem of his shirt. I don’t say anything either, just sit here waiting for a response and studying the tattoos decorating his arms.

“Jacky,” he nearly whispers, my ears straining to hear him, “there’s a lot more to me than just being a diva.” He continues looking up to meet my eyes.

“I…I know that Ronnie.” I reply uncertainly. His gaze burns in to me and sends a tremble up my spine.

“I really wanted us to be friends. And it seriously hurt me when you pushed me away.” He tells me, his face void of emotion. I don’t know what to say though; I have no witty comeback or understanding response. I just feel a little awkward and a whole lot of guilt.

Ronnie is sitting here, spilling his heart to me and I just have nothing at all to say. So I don’t say anything at all, I just sit there and listen; encouraging him to enlighten me further with a nod and affectionate pat on the shoulder.

He smiles faintly and goes on, “I know I can come off the wrong way. But I had good intentions, and even now, there is nothing I want more than for us to be friends. In fact, when I first met you, I wanted a whole lot more than just friends.” He informs me with a soft chuckle.

Are my ears deceiving me or did Ronnie just admit that he liked me?
Short but evenful-ish? Haha. Gonna end this after ten chapters, might be a sequel. What do you think?

Leave love kids!

Hii! It's been forever since we've last talked at all, huh? D:

Well, this is a great chapter! Keeps me wanting more... (=

I just thought it was cute how Ronnie was avoiding eye contact even when Jacky sat across from him and stared.

Update soon, I'm reaaally looking forward to it! I missed reading your works so much.

& A sequel would be amazing! There's just no other Jacky/Ronnie fics out there and I love this pair because of you. :D

Ahh, it has been forever since we last talked. D: I've been wondering where you went lol.

Anyway, thanks. =D I think I'll be writing a lot more Jacky/Ronnie, I'm pretty much done with Max/Ronnie and don't see myself writing that in the future.

After this one ends and I post the rest of Abandoned Hopes so far on here, I'll start posting My Salvation which is 35 chapters.

Meh- I don't get on Mibba anymore. ): Maybe over summer I'll be more active again. XD

Hurhur, the more Jacky/Ronnie, the merrier this fan is. I love this pairing so much more than M/R now. :>

Well I'm anxious to see what you'll come up with and how the story will go. Pretty stoked :D

Oooh & I really gotta go read up on Purple Veins. Loving that story so much. ♥

I just lost like all respect for Max. He's really just a mess without Ronnie. And Jacky is just adorable and seems like such a sweetheart. <3

I posted an update for Purple Veins yesterday I think lol. Don't know if you read it yet though. That story should be ending soon, but there's still so much of the plot left that I haven't gotten to yet.

You should check out my new co-write, Family Values, I think you'd like it. It's an original slash. ;]

I had some good ideas for a Max/Ronnie, but with my new change of heart for Max...I think I'll make it a Ronnie/Jacky. x]

This made me squeal(:
You made me feel happy, which now I can sleep awesomely. :D
I really love how far these two have come, from Jacky being all "RAWR D:<" to Ronnie in the beginning, to then Ronnie being all "Rawr :3" to Jacky just now. Competely a-fucking-dorable.(:
And I agree with zombiify. Sequel = mad happiness for this girl *points to self*

Haha, thanks. <3 Ronnie and Jacky are definitely both complex characters, their emotions and opinions change throughout the entire story. But who knows, maybe they'll change again...?
