Never Enough 

by Rhiannon and AJ

 

When Leo and Abbey left his office, Jed went back over to his desk to stare at the papers that sat on it. His life was really tumbling down. And just like Humpty Dumpty, all of the Kings horses and all of the Kings men couldn't put it back together again...

No matter how hard they tried...

Jed having enough of being in the office for the day, decided to return to the residence early. Not like he was doing anything at all at work.

He felt like surrounding himself in the memories of the life that was so quickly slipping from him. No better place than their... his bedroom.

Having enough of the quiet solace the room provided, Jed went over to the stereo and turned it on.

Everybody needs a little time away I heard her say From each other Even lovers need a holiday Far away From each other

Maybe that's all that Abbey needs. Maybe she just needs a holiday from him. Some time alone. Time to herself. Yeah, that's what it must be... She's gonna come back to him, Jed thought as he listened to the song. She has to.

Hold me now It's hard for me to say I'm sorry I just want you to stay

Abbey knows how hard it has always been for Jed to say that he is sorry. Even when he knows he is wrong... He's never been more wrong in his life, than he is right now. Never... But he is sorry. Truly, he is. He was just caught up in the comfort that Meredith had been able to supply him on those lonely nights. But he didn't want Meredith... He wanted Abbey...

After all that we've been through I will make it up to you I promise to And after all that's been said and done You're just the part of me I can't let go

Jed refused to give up on his marriage. There is no damn way in hell he will ever concede to sign those divorce papers. And there is no way he will ever be able to take Leo and Abbey seriously... She is just doing it to Jed, to get back at him. That's what it is... But they have always had a strong relationship. They will get it back. Things will return to normal... They have to...

Couldn't stand to be kept away Just for the day From your body

Jed loves Abbey. He always did. He loves everything about her. Her mind, her body... He never could stand it when they were apart... Which to him, seemed like all the time. That's why he turned to Meredith... He was in need of someone... Abbey was never there. She was always enough, but never there...

Wouldn't wanna be swept away Far away From the one that I love

It was Abbey that Jed loves. Abbey... Not Meredith... But it was Abbey that he hurt so very much. He was responsible for sweeping their relationship away. Him, not her. Him... Yet he couldn't help but to think that if she would just stop being so damn stubborn, they could try again, and make it work...

Hold me now It's hard for me to say I'm sorry I just want you to know Hold me now I really want to tell you I'm sorry I could never let you go

Maybe there is a chance for Jed to get her back. Maybe if he went crawling to her on his hands and knees... maybe then... And he could tell her how sorry he is. And how he was so stupid for doing it in the first place. How he loves her, and refuses to let her go...

After all that we've been through I will make it up to you I promise to

Listening to the song, the words seemed to fit so well with his current life situation. They have been through a lot of things in the past... They can surely do it again. All he has to do is figure out a way to make it up to her... But will she take him back? Is she moving on with her life already? It's only been a few days...

And after all that's been said and done You're just the part of me I can't let go

If Abbey is moving on already, that doesn't mean that Jed has to give up on her. As long as she is still alive, he still has a chance to win her back... because she IS the part of him that he can't let go of. Which makes the fact that he cheated on her that much more stupid.

After all that we've been through I will make it up to you I promise to

That's it. He had to make it up to her. He had to at least try to, at any rate. He can't live without her. He can't...

Picking up the telephone, Jed began to dial a very familiar number to him. After someone on the other end picked up, he responded, "Meredith... I need to see you right away. It's very important."
