This story came to me while watching "Nurse Jackie". Takes place after "Right Turn or Left for Dead".


"Jules!" Shawn jumped from the bench the moment she entered his sights. "Hey, can we talk?"

"I don't have anything to say to you, Spencer," Juliet growled not bothering to slow her pace or look at him.

"Spencer? Really? Is that where we're at?"

Juliet came to a sudden halt, "Where we're at is that you lied to me, Shawn! For six years, you lied to me. And you broke the law." She hissed between gritted teeth. "So, excuse me if I don't want to talk to you right now." She turned to walk away but was stopped by his hand grabbing her arm.

"Jules, please," he begged in a whisper. "If you just let me explain–"

"I don't want to talk to you, I don't want to see you, leave me alone, Shawn. Okay? I need… I need time." She sighed.

"Okay," he nodded and released the grip he had on her arm. "okay, I can do that. I can do time."

"Go home, Shawn, or wherever the Hell you're staying. Don't come around here, please."

He kept his mouth closed as she turned and hurried up the station's steps. He knew better than to push her buttons, especially when she was pissed at him, he'd learned that in a previous argument. He shoved his hands in his jean pockets and kicked a crumpled soda can into the street. He knew she had every right to be angry with him, to not want to see him, but Shawn couldn't help but think if she just let him explain… everything would be okay. They could go back to how they were, happy.

Shawn sighed and yanked his phone out of his back pocket, he called the first number screen and told them his location. He stood completely still for the ten long minutes it took for the cab to pull to a stop in front of him. He climbed into the back seat and gave the driver the address of the Psych office. He didn't know where else to go.

Gus was worried that his life would come tumbling down now that Juliet knew their secret. He was panicking and spending much needed time with his parents. His father was pissed, having the same fears as Gus, that they would all be taken down and was refusing to speak with him. He understood their fears, Hell, he had a few of his own. But his gut told him that Juliet wouldn't do anything, she wouldn't tell Carlton or the Chief. If she was going to, she would've already done it. Shawn was sure of that. He threw two twenty-dollar bills at the driver and exited the cab.

He slammed the office door behind him and collapsed onto the couch. He kicked the shoes off his feet and pressed his back into the cushions behind him. He didn't feel like stalking some woman's husband to find out whether or not he was having an affair. He shut his eyes and willed for the pounding in his head to disappear. The last thing he needed at the moment was a migraine. He probably should have seen a doctor after he hit his head.

He covered his eyes with his arm and shut his eyes.


Shawn jolted when he heard the noise. A loud repetitive banging made him stand quickly from the couch and stare at the door. The room was dark, the clock on the wall told him it was close to midnight. When the pounding started again Shawn walked towards the door.

"Gus, did you forget your key again? What are you doing here so late?" Shawn yanked open the door. He stopped in his tracks at the person standing in front of him. He couldn't believe it. Shawn shook his head, it had to be some sort of hallucination, it had to be. "Charlie… what are you doing here?"

"What? Surprised to see me, Dad?"


This chapter is short but is a set up for future chapters. I'm planning for short but quick updates. Thanks for reading!
