by Rhiannon and AJ
Notes: With a stroke of luck, both Rhiannon and I were thinking last night, hard to believe, we know. Anyway, if all goes as planned, this story should be turned into a series of three stories.
"Abbey?" Jed said as he began to stir awake.
"Huh?" She responded.
"Who was that on the phone?" Jed felt Abbey moving off of him and back over to her side of the bed.
"No one important. Go back to sleep." Abbey gave him a peck on the cheek as she tried to rationalize the phone call she just received.
"Okay." Jed responded, never fully having woken up. He reached over and grabbed her in his arms, pulling her body close to his.
When he finally went back to sleep, Abbey was still awake. The only thing on her mind... that phone call. Could it be true? Is it possible?
Could he really...?
Ron said he had proof...
Abbey untangled herself from his arms once again and climbed out of bed. She quietly went into her closet and got dressed and slipped out of their bedroom before he had a chance to realize that she was gone.
Entering her office, she threw the light on nervously as she looked to her desk and found a big yellow envelope with her name on it, in Ron's handwriting.
Apprehensively, she moved over to sit at her desk and picked the envelope up, into her hands. About fifty times she moved to open it, but every time, the fear of the possibilities stopped her from doing it.
Hearing a noise out in the hallways, Abbey quickly threw the envelope in one of her desk drawers, just in time before a light tap was heard on her door.
"Come in." Her voice sounded very shaky.
"I thought I'd find you down here. So, have you opened it yet?" Ron moved in further into her office.
"No, I haven't." Abbey said as she pulled the envelope back out of the desk drawer.
"Abbey, you know I wouldn't be making this up. You know I only want what's in your best interest. You know me well enough to know that, right?" Ron sat down on a chair in front of her desk.
"If what you say is true, I don't really know anything." Abbey said quietly as she closed her eyes and finally opened up the envelope, pulling out the contents.
Her eyes widened and tears began to fall from her eyes when she opened them and saw what lay before her.
