She started crying and nodded and held out her hand.
“Yes!” Jessica said. Nick grinned and slid the ring on her finger and stood up and cupped her face in his hands and kissed her deeply and held her close as everyone cheered and clapped. James held Bonnie to him as they smiled happily. Ashley and Melanie were crying as they cheered. Brian and Alex grinned as they cheered. Jake clapped with everyone else.
“Congratulations you two!” Brian said coming over to them.
“Best man!” Nick said.
“You know it!” Brian said as they hugged.
“Who is going to be maid of honor?” Ashley asked.
“Melanie, and you are bridesmaid, Ash,” Jessica said.
“I figured but it’s cool, I still want to help plan!” Ashley said.
“Of course!” Jessica said. Melanie and Ashley hugged her.
They all went home and Nick and Jessica walked into their house and closed the door and locked up and they were in each other’s arms removing their clothes and collapsing on the couch and he made love to her. They got up and headed upstairs before he took her on the stairs. They head for the bedroom and collapsed on the bed and made love off and on throughout the night. They woke up the next morning and made love again.
“I can’t get enough of you,” Nick said burying his face in her neck. She smiled and held him to her.
“I’m not complaining,” Jessica said.
“I can’t wait to marry you, I can’t wait to call you my wife,” Nick said. She smiled and kissed him deeply.
“Me too, but we have one thing to do first, find out what happened to Jacob and if he is really dead,” Jessica said.
“My dad is working on it, we won’t get married until we know for sure what happened,” Nick said.
“Okay until then what is our plans for this weekend?” Jessica asked.
“Let’s see, we get up and eat, make love, eat lunch, make love, eat dinner, make love, I have my dessert and then we make love all night and repeat tomorrow,” Nick said.
“You are going to wear me out and I’m not going to be able to walk Monday,” Jessica said.
“Can’t help it, you give me a constant hard on, it never goes away when you are near me,” Nick said. She shook her head and kissed him and they made love again before they got up and put some clothes on and went downstairs and ate breakfast before he was removing their clothes and making love to her on the kitchen counter. Then they moved to the dining room table and he made love to her there. They made their way back up to the bedroom and got on the bed and made love again. They were in the middle of making love for the fourth time when they heard the doorbell ring. He groaned. Nick got up and got dressed and went downstairs and opened the door and saw Jake standing there.
“Jake, hi, what are you doing here?” Nick asked.
“I’m sorry, Nick, but I came for Jessica,” Jake said.
“What do you mean by that?” Nick asked.
“I remembered my past, everything, it all came back to me last night, after I got home from the coffee shop, I went to bed with a massive headache and I woke up and everything came flooding back, my real name is Jacob Parker, Jessica is my wife,” Jake said.
“What?” Jessica said coming to the door.
“Jessica,” Jake said.
“You can’t be Jacob, you don’t look like him at all, you’re wrong,” Jessica said.
“June 24th, 2013, we got married before I got deployed, we were high school sweethearts, we were each other’s first time,” Jake said. Jessica collapsed against Nick. He held her to him.
“Oh god no,” Jessica said. He helped her to the couch and they sat down as Jake came in and closed the door and sat down.
“I’m sorry it took me this long to come home, but I had a little memory trouble,” Jake said.
“How long have you known who you were?” Jessica asked.
“This morning, I went to the house and Ashley said you moved in with Nick,” Jake said.
“Yeah, we got engaged last night,” Jessica said.
“I know, I remember everything that has happened,” Jake said.
“Oh god,” Jessica said covering her face with her hands.
“Jess,” Nick said.
“How come you look so different?” Jessica asked.
“I guess the bomb messed up my face so they had to do reconstructive surgery,” Jake said.
“Oh probably so,” Jessica said.
“Jess, I know you have moved on and given your heart to Nick, I will give you a divorce, if you want it, we can move on with our lives, you can stay with Nick, I saw the love between you two, I don’t want to get in the way of that,” Jake said.
“You would do that, you just got your memory back and came home, you would let me be with Nick,” Jessica said.
“Yeah, Jess, you thought I was dead, you moved on with your life, there is no going back to the way things were before, I know me being overseas put a strain on our relationship, I noticed it when I was home last, things weren’t the same, I thought I would have the chance to work things out with you when I came home for good, but you can see how that turned out, I will step aside and give you a divorce so you can be with Nick,” Jake said.
“Jess?” Nick asked.
“Thank you, Jacob, I will call a lawyer first thing Monday morning,” Jessica said.
“Okay, Nick, do I still have the job?” Jake asked.
“Yeah,” Nick said.
“Okay, you know where to find me with the papers to sign,” Jake said. He got up and left the house. Jessica sat there. Nick took her hand in his.
“Baby?” Nick asked. She threw herself in his arms.
“I love you and I never want to be without you,” Jessica said.
“I love you too, baby, you really choose me,” Nick said.
“Yes, I do,” Jessica said.
“I was scared you would want to go back to him,” Nick said. Jessica stroked his face.
“I want you, Nick, I want to be with you, you have my heart, you have completely taken my heart,” Jessica said. He got up and locked the door and picked her up and carried her upstairs and removed their clothes and they laid on the bed and he slowly made love to her. He came inside her and they went to sleep in each other’s arms. The next day, they went over to Ashley’s house and walked in and sat down on the couch with Ashley and Alex.
“Did Jake find you guys?” Ashley asked.
“Yeah, he did,” Nick said.
“He’s Jacob,” Jessica said.
“Wait, Jacob, as in your husband, Jacob?” Ashley said.
“Yeah, he regained his memory this morning and came looking for me,” Jessica said.
“Oh my god, so what’s going to happen now?” Ashley asked.
“I’m calling a lawyer first thing in the morning to file for a divorce, he said he remembers everything about his life, even the months he had no memory, so he could tell that I love Nick and how deep in love with Nick I am, so he said he would give me a divorce and we can move on with our lives,” Jessica said.
“Wow,” Alex said.
“Nick?” Ashley asked.
“What,” Nick said.
“What’s up,” Ashley said.
“Nothing, just letting her talk, and thinking about everything,” Nick said.
“So does he still have a job with you?” Alex asked.
“Yeah,” Nick said.
“Are you sure that’s a good idea?” Alex asked.
“What, my fiancee’s husband working for me, I have no other option right now, we are in need of help, I can’t afford to let people go right now, we need all the help we can get,” Nick said.
“It’ll be fine, guys,” Jessica said.
