Reality~

It was the kiss that had ruined everything.

Rough hands smoothing his back.
That feeling of unsatisfied need that made Jack tremble every time.
All the heavy panting, the hot puffs of air on his nape, followed by the welcome burning sensation and the initial sharp pain.
A shaky breath.
And relief filling every fiber of his body.
The pain that turned into pleasure as the movements grew more and more frantic behind him, bringing him closer, closer to the place where he wanted to be.
Then a grunt, and with his eyes still shut Jack shuddered: and it was just like usual, it was like always, like it had always been.
Like it had to be.

Jack’s breath slowed down as he let himself fall on the mattress, rolling onto his back, his sweaty hair sticking to his forehead.

And then, right then, a hand reached out for him, gently stroking his cheek, and two lips brushed a soft kiss against his temple.
The bubble that had kept any rational thought out of Jack’s mind exploded.
So much tenderness.

Something that Ennis would probably never do.

No matter how hard Jack tried, it seemed that reality always found a way to sneak up on him- and sometimes it was just too hard to deal with.

He had said no kisses.
Damn.
It had been that fucking kiss.

Coping

First of all, knowing how bad "afraid of tomorrow" feels, I do hope your tomorrow goes (went?) well after all. At the very least it is over in 24 hours.
Second, the beautiful way you write how Jack is (almost) coping makes me sure that you can find a good way to cope yourself.
Third, *thank you* for giving *my* day a good start. I can't manage to read as much as I wished or used to, but I count myself lucky that I happened here.

The worst part of 'tomorrow' is over, thank you.
I made it out alive after all! :)

Aww, thank you for your comment.
It makes me so happy when readers can like what I write to the point of saying that I 'made their day'.
*You* saved one of my otherwise quite bad days, my dear!

Thank you!

*big hugs*

Hi babe! ♥
I'm glad you liked it!

Yeah, kiss=love most of the time, isn't it?
I have to say I was thinking about Jack/Randall the first time I thought about this, but then I realized it really could be Jack/... whatever, maybe some guy in Mexico.
Who knows?

Quite sad thinking about it, but I was in a canon-mood for a couple of days.

*big hugs darlin'!*

It took me a couple of times reading this through to really understand it (because I'm soooo thick, not because of your writing). You packed a punch here, and I like it. Really good canon, B! :)

Hope you're not afraid any more.

L&H,

Like I said the worst part of 'tomorrow/today' is over! (Damn but school can be so scary *lol!* I had a test that... well, it coul've gone better *rolls eyes*)

Oh, don't worry. I re-read it for a while, trying to understand if it could be clear enough without giving too much away, not so easy to do when it was so clear in my head from the very start.

I hope you're ok, honey.
Oh, and yay for Joanne's book! :)

Love ya!

Although I know your writing well enough by now to have anticipated that from the first line Jack wasn't with Ennis, this really packs punch! You go girl!

Afraid of tomorrow? Yikes! I hope the day is almost over for you now! And I hope it was better than expected!

Love ya,

Donna

Oh, so strange to have someone saying she knows my writing so well, *lol!*

You clever thing... ;)

Oh, I thought it was easy enough to tell though, but I don't know, maybe because I knew it already, of course.

Day's almost over... 'twas more or less like I was expecting it to be!

Love ya back!

I just discovered you! What a great piece of writing this is. I think it absolutely captures Jack's dilemma; how do you satisfy physical needs but avoid emotional ties when you're separated from the one person you love? I would love to know about this invisible person Jack's with!
Terrific.

Thank you so much for leaving a comment here, Janie, it means a lot to me. I'm very glad you liked it. :)
I was thinking about Randall when I wrote this piece, but then I realized that it could be anyone- maybe a guy in MExico, who knows?

Many hugs to you!

Wonderful one shot, dear :)
I'm in love with your prose. The way you evoke Jack's inner turmoil is incredibly beautiful.
Like Janie said, I also think it captures Jack's dilemma: his heart will always be with Ennis, but he can't satisfy all his physical and emotional needs, and he's obviously torn.
Grazie di cuore,
Paola
