The next couple of days seem to fly by. School, dojo, Jack… Before I've even realized it, it's the last day of school.

"Goodmorning Kim." Mom says as I enter the kitchen.

"Morning Mom." I reply and grab some yogurt from the fridge.

"You look nice today." She says before taking another bite of her cereal.

"Thanks."

Today I decided on wearing a cute light orange dress. It had spaghetti straps, a lacey top, and a flowy, chiffon bottom that ends a few inches above the knee. There was a small brown belt wrapping around the middle, separating the top of the dress from the bottom. I paired this was a light-wash denim jacket and a pair of gladiator-style wedges. For accessories, I added a golden cuff bracelet, golden flower blossom earrings, and my locket.

Finishing off my yogurt, I throw away the container and turn back to see my phone light up with a new text.

Opening up the notification, I read a text from Jack telling me that he's outside.

"I'll see you later, Mom. Jack's waiting outside for me." I say while giving her a quick hug and heading for the door.

"Okay. Bye Kim. It's the last day, so I only have one request."

"Which is?" I question, raising an eyebrow

"No beating up Jerry. You don't want to get in trouble on the very last day of school."

"Fine. But he better behave himself."

"Pssht. This is Jerry that we're talking about."

I laugh and reply, "Good point, Mom. Good point."

Closing the front door behind me, I head over to Jack's car and get in.

"Goodmorning, Gorgeous." Jack smiles.

"Oh, somebody wants a kiss this morning." I smirk.

"Kimmy," Jack states with a fake shock, "I'm hurt that you think so low of me."

"Oh. My bad. I almost gave you a kiss for that adorable greeting. I'm glad that we sorted this out before it was too late." I tease and turn to face forward.

"Wait, wait, wait." Jack says while turning me back towards him, "Let's not get too hasty."

"What?" I ask with fake innocence, "Didn't you just say that you didn't want a kiss?"

"I don't remember saying anything even remotely close to that." Jack whispers while slowly closing the distance between us.

"Are you sure? Because I could have sworn…" I trail off as Jack silences my words with his lips.

I laugh and smile slightly into the kiss before pulling back, "Okay. You've gotten your kiss, now let's go."

Jack sighs before shaking his head and pulling the car out of the driveway. Smiling slightly, I hear him mutter, "You'll be the death of me, Princess."

I laugh quietly to myself, and turn to look out of the window.

Caught up in my thoughts, I barely register when Jack takes my hand from lap and interlaces his fingers with my own before resting them on his lap.

I look over to find him sending a loving smile my way that I can't help but to return.

Jack turns his attention back to the road, but I can't seem to get my eyes to leave Jack's face. He's too perfect. His luscious hair, which I love to run my fingers through, his deep brown eyes, always holding so much emotion that most don't seem to pick up on. But I do. I feel so special to be able to receive looks from him that I know are reserved especially for me. Every time we're together, I can always see the love in his eyes. To know that I alone get all of this emotion from him is something that I just cannot get over. I don't know what I did to deserve someone as amazing as him.

Caught up with my thoughts, and, probably creepy, staring, I cease to realize that we have made it to school. Jack looks over to me, catching me right in the middle of my act. I blush, and turn my head away. Meanwhile, I can practically feel the smirk that has taken over his features.

"Whatcha thinking about, Kimmy?"

Despite my slight embarrassment at being caught, I look over at him and answer quietly, "You," before looking away once again.

The smirk on his face transforms into a tender smile as he gently lifts a hand to my chin, and slowly turns my head back to look at him.

"What about me?" He asks quietly.

"I was trying to figure out just how I got lucky enough to end up with someone as amazing as you." I say lowly, smiling when I see his eyes light up from what I have just told him.

"Kimmy…" He whispers huskily while looking directly into my eyes, "I think the same thing about you every day. You are the most amazing, beautiful, perfect human being that I have ever met in my entire life. I don't know how I ended up being lucky enough to deserve you. I love you so much, Kimmy."

I almost start to tear up at his sentiments. "I love you too, Jack. So, so much."

He leans in and gives me a gentle, yet loving and passionate kiss on the lips. He smiles into the kiss, and I can't help but to smile too. The kiss goes on until someone decides to rudely interrupt, knocking on the window.

Jack grudgingly pulls back and turns to roll down the window, revealing a grinning Jerry.

"Can I help you?" Jack asks, annoyed at being interrupted.

Seemingly unaffected by Jack's tone, Jerry answers, "You've been sitting in there forever, yo. The bell is about to ring."

"And since when do you care about being on time, Jerry?" Jack asks.

"Good point, yo." Jerry shrugs and turns back to walk off.

'If he keeps this up,' I think, 'There's no way that he's not going to get it today.'

Moment ruined, Jack and I get out and make our way into the school, hand in hand.


"5!"

"4!"

"3!"

"2!"

"1!"

"YEAH!"

"FREEDOM!"

"WOOOOOO!"

"Peace Out, Suckers!"

And in what seems like a mere 2.5 seconds, the room is clear.

"Animals," I hear the teacher mutter.

I would stop to laugh, but I'm been thrown into a rush hour crowd of students, all fighting to flee this prison-sentence and scurry into a well-deserved summer. I mean, I would be slightly upset with all the harsh behavior, but it's not like I'm not throwing out my own elbows into the crowd. What? A girl's got to do what a girl's got to do.

Already having cleaned out my locker, I skip that technicality and push through the doors. I welcome the sweet, sweet breeze that comes with such. *sigh* Magnificent.

As I approach Jack's car, he comes up right beside me.

"Those people are animals," Jack says, shaking his head and cradling his arm.

"True. What happened to your arm?" I ask, raising an eyebrow.

Jack shoves his arm into my face and exclaims, "Look at this! A girl bit me!"

"You got bit?" I ask, trying to reign in the oncoming laughter.

"Yeah! This is ludicrous! I mean, I know it's the last day of school and all, but come on. Biting?"

At that, I lose it. At this point, I'm bracing myself against Jack's car, almost in tears.

"Yeah, yeah. Laugh it up. It wasn't you who got bit, so you don't know the pain that I'm suffering."

I would make some smart-aleck comment about his whining, but I can barely even breath at this point. Slowly, I maneuver myself to sit in this passenger seat of the car. That's the best I can manage at this point.

Jack gets in the car, admittedly a bit huffier than usual. He resorts to simply glaring at me.

Finally, after much struggle, I resign myself to a better state.

"You get it all out?" Jack asks, with a bite to his tone.

I roll my eyes, "Oh Please, Drama Queen. The bite wasn't THAT bad. That was absolutely hilarious, and you know it."

"I refuse not acknowledge your horrendous accusations," Jack says. Nonetheless, I see his lips twitch up into a brief smile.

I roll my eyes as Jack starts up the car and pulls out of the parking lot. Finally. This summer vacation can begin.


AN: Soooo… Hey, Guys. What's it been? A year and a half? Aha. Oops? *hides under table*
