''One more the road'' his grandmother asked as he hugged her again ''I love you grandma''
‘’I love you to Shawn’’ she handed him a basket full of food and then he hugged his grandfather ‘’That goes for all of us Shawn Douglas …''.
He left the pub it was time to say goodbye to his great gran the hardest of them all, Julie answered the door and hugged him tightly before he even enter the house. ‘’Must you leave us Shawn Douglas ’’
‘’Yeah sorry grandma’’
’’Than Salem shell be a much sadder place to be’’ Doug voice rang out ‘’Do you need money or anything’’ he asked
‘’No grandpa but thank you ’’ he hugged Doug ‘’Well what kind of grandparents would we be if we didn’t at least offer'' Julie reasoned with a smile
’’The best grandparents I love you both and I’ll miss you’’ he told them sincerely
He hugged them once more and as he headed to were Alice set, he relished how much he would missed this crazy town and all it’s Characters
‘’Hi gran'' he knelt before her with a smile that lit up his face as she looked at him and she new he was here to say his farewell since she would not say goodbye to her beloved great grandson.
‘’’Hello my darling…is it that time already’’ she smiled sadly but she was happy for him and very proud of him, he finally found some direction in his life and that he was pursuing his newly found dream but she understood more then most were that desirer came from. ‘’You will do great things Shawn …and I’m proud of you, Tom would be to. ’’
‘’You think so.’’ he asked quietly
‘’I know so Shawn Douglas….’’ her face was filled with pride
‘’I love You gran’’
‘’I love you to Shawn Douglas’’
he kissed her cheek and then left, dreading where he had to go next because he didn’t want to say goodbye yet again he didn’t thank he could handle it…..Shawn knelt before his littlie brothers grave stone and cried he missed Zach so much, there was so much he wanted to teach him… show him, do with him.
‘’Hi Zach’’ Shawn spoke quietly as if Zach was there, ‘’How are you buddy, I know your happy and safe but I miss you so much.’’ he run his hand the over grave stone and sobbed. ‘’I’m leaving today.’’ he sighed I’m doing it for you ya know, you and…JT ’’ he said quietly in refection of both his bothers but for the first time since they lost Zach it brought a smile to his hansom face as his dark eyes filled with tears
’’I love you Zach...’’
He lay a single red rose on the headstone
He found himself at the docks the water always gave him a sense of pace as he cleared his thoughts and took a deep breath
’’Shawn can we talk’’ Belle’s voice broke through his peacefully alone time ‘’I need to tell you….’’
‘’’No Belle we’ve been over this…’’
‘’But I still love you…’’
‘’And I don’t not any more…please go ‘’ he didn’t feel like listening to her whine and cry anymore …he thought back on when things were diffident…. when they where diffident and he wondered where that strong, fiery, sparkling spirit she had went . No that was not the girl he fall in love with so long ago
She watched them from a far in the shadows as anger blazed in her fiery blue eyes and she thought Jan Spears pissed her off….but she heard what he'd said and smiled she heard it in his voice somewhere deep inside of him Shawn knew it wasn’t her
As she step from her hiding place, she saw him alone and stood in awe for a moment she hadn’t scene him in over two and a half years it had been a long road back here home to him but she made it. She had went to search for him after his disappearance that summer, she had never believed he’d just up and left, she knew that something happened to him, she knew now that something was Jan who was working with the Dimaras she had been hit by a car that night and lost her memory she suspected it was Jan who ran her down
Then there was the imposter, the Dimars of course…..
None of that seem to matter as she approached him as he leaned against his bike with his legs crossed ‘’’Hey stranger going somewhere ’’ he heard a familiar sing song voice carry through early fall air
‘’New York…’’ he ’answered not really sure why, he felt her come closer as shivers coursed through his body he turn around and his hearted stopped as he saw her he didn’t know how it was possible
‘’Belle is that you…. really you’’ he breathed as he looked into her deep blue eyes she suddenly pulled him into a long slow passionate kiss that rivaled that of their first
‘’Take me with you Shawn’’ she finally broke the kiss
But what about …..
’’Shhhh…’’ she put a hand to his lips ‘’I want to be with you’’ then she kissed him again as he backed her up against the bike in a hated make out session, Shawn went to help her onto the bike but she didn’t need his help as she swung her leg over mounding the bike and smiled at him with a sexy wink sitting there
‘’Where to pretty lady’’
‘’ Anywhere but here …..with you ’’
