The Funny Thing Is 

by: Rhiannon & AJ

 

The truly disturbed couple did just as they said. They both called in sick, and they spent the entire day talking about their dreams... or rather, their nightmares. Abbey told Jed all about how she found the pictures, and then there was the love letters... Jed told Abbey about Jenn's wedding to Toby... Her engagement to Leo...

For hours, the two tried to rationalize their dreams. They had both dreamt that Jed was unfaithful, and the funny thing is, that they both dreamt it was with the same woman.

Finally having enough of a headache from trying to figure it all out, Jed walked over to the stereo, and moments later, returned to Abbey, with a slow, sweet melody drifting through the speakers.


Sayin' I love you
Is not the words
I want to hear from you

Jed and Abbey were both finding that they could not say enough of how much they loved the other, not after the dreams they both had. But would it be enough to just say it? Or should they show how much in love they are with each other?

 

It's not that I want you
Not to say it,
But if you only knew

Jed re-crossed the room, after turning the radio on. He went over to his wife, brought her body close, into hers, and let their bodies drift slowly together.


How easy it would be
To show me how you feel
More than words
Is all you have to do

Without any words, Jed began to lead his beautiful wife over to the bed, where he slowly let his lips begin to take over for him. They didn't resort to telling her how much he loved her, instead, they showed her.


To make it real
Then you wouldn't have to say
That you love me
Cause I'd already know

Helping her up onto the bed, the hold their lips had of each other, never broke. If anything, it only grew with intensity as each second passed by. This was make-up time. Of course, neither of them had anything to make-up for, but their dreams had scared the crap out of both of them so much, it was pretty much a needed thing.


What would you do
If my heart was torn in two

Through their dreams... nightmares... they had gotten the answer to this question. The answer was what could have been expected of any relationship... but they aren't just any relationship. They are the First Couple. They are one of the most in-love couple's the country had to offer.


More than words
To show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say
If I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by sayin' I love you

More than words

Jed was always one who preferred to show his true feelings, instead of trying to put them to words... especially when they had to do with how much in-love he is, with his wife. He probably wouldn't even be able to put that into words, if he tried... no one could. The love shared between Abbey and Jed is just way too strong a thing.


Now that I've tried to
Talk to you and make you understand
All you have to do
Is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands
And touch me

Abbey closed her eyes, and reached her hands out to Jed. Jed took a hold of one of her arms, and left a trail of kisses all the way down it, until eventually, he found her lips. There he lingered for a good few minutes, before pulling slightly away.


Hold me close
Don't ever let me go

Abbey felt her husband pulling away, and so she held him closer into her. She didn't ever want to let him go. She didn't want for him to let her go. Not in a million years.


More than words
Is all I ever needed you to show
Then you wouldn't have to say
That you love me
Cause I'd already know

 

Jed has spent an entire life time telling Abbey that he loves her, and he will undoubtedly spend an eternity showing her... especially after they both had similar dreams, in which Jed was unfaithful. Yeah, it was only a dream, but aren't dreams supposed to be a window into reality?


What would you do
If my heart was torn in two
More than words
To show you feel
That your love for me is real

 

A love couldn't be any more real than that of Abbey and Jed. 32 wonderful years they have shared. Three terrific daughters they have managed to raise. Two amazing grandchildren they have been blessed with. And through all of this, neither of them ever even had an unpure thought. Their love is definitely for real.

 

What would you say
If I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying I love you

More than words...

 

More than words...

As his hand began to drift down Abbey, he found it unbuttoning her shirt, while at the same time, she was practically ripping his off of him.

"Abbey..." He whispered as he pulled his lips from hers, momentarily.

"Jed..." She whispered back, as she brought his head down, to meet with her lips once again.

TBC...
