A/N: Thanks to everyone who read and reviewed!
Renderer - It's a great story indeed, I'm glad that I could post it for you. :)
olischulu - Yeah when I was reading it the first part was very sad, but the second part made it all better. :D
finaldragon13 - I'm glad you like these microfics! And the post limit is in place mainly because it's for a challenge and because it's just the way we've been doing it (we post these on forums and there is a limit to how many characters per post so we just specify for each challenge how many post is the max). Thanks for reviewing!
Atoz - I like these as well, thanks for reviewing!
MicroFic #27, by The Crusader

"You and I talk about it a lot."
"We do. We will."
John turned his face away from her.
"No we won't. Not in this future."
Cameron's mouth opened a little bit, as she usually did when something "upset" her.
"It's only a matter of time before you try to kill-"
"No. I told you I won't let that happen again."
"I wasn't talking about that. I was talking about what you're planning. How long do I have until I come home and find you dead?"
With no response to Cameron, he looked back at her. He unfolded his hands and let them drop down to his sides.
"Am I gonna find your body in pieces one day, because you found a way to blow yourself up? Or are you gonna purposely do something to make Mom or Derek kill you?"
She made no reply, so John continued.
"We won't talk about how lonely I am. Cause you won't be here."
They both lay there for awhile in silence. John was visibly upset though not near the point of tears. Was Cameron waiting for John to say something else? Or was she searching for the appropriate response? After a few moments Cameron took John's left hand in her right hand. But he kept his hand open, kept his fingers from closing around her hand.
"You're making a bioscan?"
He didn't believe that anymore than he believed her when she said she changed because it was hot out. But before he knew it, his fingers closed around her hand. He allowed himself to feel the warmth and affection of a machine.
"I'm here now, John."
"For how long? Every night you go out, the next morning you come back all beat up. Are you hoping one of them is gonna kill you?"
"Then what the hell have you been doing at night?"
"You know I can't tell you that. Just know that everything I do is for you."
"Then don't go. Find another way, please. There has to be another way."
He rolled over towards her. His right hand stroked her face and hair.
"Please." He said his voice in a gentle whisper. He repeated it even quieter, as his face drew closer to hers. He said it a final time as his eyes closed, preparing for what he originally wanted to avoid. He could feel her artificial breath on him, and just like his own breathing, it quickened. It seemed that she might have wanted him to do this.
"John," she whispered. Then she turned her head away from him. "You need to get some sleep."
She let go of his left hand and got up from the bed. John opened his eyes, and saw her walk away from him. She walked right towards the door, but then stopped and looked back to him.
"Stay." He said to her. "Please stay."
"If I do? Will you?"
She slid her boots off, and walked back towards the bed. John slid his own shoes off, and got under the covers, opening them up for Cameron.
"I don't need a blanket. It's hot out."
"I told you. I'm not stupid."
John grinned as he said that. He knew that Cameron was trying to seduce him. But now he felt that maybe it wasn't just because of her mission. Cameron turned out the light and climbed into bed with John. He pulled the blanket over both of them. He draped his right arm over her body and rested his head on her shoulder. Cameron's left hand rubbed up and down John's back.
"I never thanked you for bringing me back."
He listened for how she might finish this sentence, but all he heard was her skirt zipper being unzipped.
A/N: Hope you liked it! I find that the ending was very well done, great job CK!
As I've stated before this story will be updated whenever CK writes a new microfic (he has a busy job), plus he's been writing RotC.
If you have the time please review, one word is all it takes!
