"Hide everything from us? Don't tell me that wasn't stupid!", I said.

"He didn't want you to worry", Eve said.

"But he was ok with dying?"

Are you confused? Well, Jeremy was poisoned and he didn't tell us anything. He's ok now and Kayla is my new favorite person.

"Hey, Alex, it's over, you don't have to worry anymore."

"I know... Look, I'm sorry", I said.

"What? Why?", she asked confused.

"I'm always reckless!"

"Yeah...", she said and sighed, "and even though it's driving me crazy and I want to smack you in the head so hard, I... I have to recognize that every time you act recklessly is because you're trying to help out the people you care about."

I looked at her as she continued. "And yes, you have me worried sick, but you've been like that from the moment I met you. You went out of your way to help me back then and you do the same for everyone else you care about, I can't ask you to change that, I don't want to. What I do want is for you to be more careful, I think that's reasonable, right?"

"I love you", I said, "and yes it is", I smiled.

"I love you too."

"Who would have thought you'd fall for a jerk, right?"

She chuckled. "Who would have thought you'd fall for a rogue?"

"I love my rogue."

"And I love my jerk."

"I really don't want you to do this", I said.

"I told you I was going to help, you know I'm good!", Eve said.

"Yes, I know, but still. I don't want you to get hurt."

"And I don't want you to get hurt, so we'd better stay safe."

We had to fight Silver Moon and Eve was set on helping. I knew I couldn't change her mind and she was right, I knew she's good.

We had Chris' help, but they had rogues, so I wasn't sure who had the upper hand.

"Be safe", she said.

"You too."

Eve's pov

"Found you!", I shouted and Charlotte started running and giggling. She's adorable.

I chased her and caught her, bringing her back to Jeremy and Alex.

"Aunt Eve found me!", she said.

"I can see that", Jeremy smiled.

"Where's Emma?", Alex asked.

"With your mom and aunt Kayla. They're at your house I think...", Jeremy said and it was all they needed to run towards it. Emma is Jeremy and Kayla's daughter and she just turned two.

"How are you?", he asked me.

I smiled. "I'm ok", I said and really meant it. It took me a lot of time, but I was better now. I still missed Alex too much, but after all this time, I was finally able to move on.

I spent a lot of time isolating myself from everyone, sinking into depression and I knew I had to do something. I knew Alex wouldn't want me to stop living, so I managed to move on and spend time with the people who cared about me.

There was one thing I knew for sure though.

I will always love my jerk.
