AN: Yep, this is the sequel to I Said I'm Sorry. Not really a BRILLIANT idea, but I just had to write it. Dedicated to everyone that's been pestering me about writing one. You know who you are. Thanx, though. Pleez give me some input on this. Just a little reminder, this is still in Jen's point of view, unlike A Chance for Romance. If you haven't read that, please do.
Chapter One-A Brief Glance
Now, ten years after Shawn and I broke up, I am 27 and getting along quite nicely. I've got a great job as a pediatrician, and I've even kept in touch with Amanda. She and Daniel broke up pretty close to the time Shawn and I did.
I have even gotten over my loss of Shawn. In fact, I hadn't thought of him that much since I got some closure on your relationship eight years ago, two years after we broke up. At least, I thought I had found closure. I mean, I HAD been through several boyfriends since he left. Then again, they didn't last more than three months, so maybe that had something to do with him. Maybe I wasn't over him yet. Maybe I never had been. I really didn't know.
I just. . . started thinking about him today. I was leaving work and heading over to the Starbucks across from the hospital. The street was extremely crowded, and I only caught a glimpse of him, but, even after ten years, I could recognize him anywhere. It was Shawn, but what was he doing here in New York? The last time I'd heard from him, he had become a manager in some company out in California.
When I saw him, though, memories came flooding back. I stopped dead in my tracks, not caring that people walking on the sidewalk were bumping into me. I ran over to him, only to find that he was gone. He had disappeared, just like that, exactly like he had disappeared from my life ten years ago.
Did he know I was here in New York? Or was it pure coincidence? Did I feel something for him, after all these years? Hell, he had vanished from my thoughts years ago, but now he shows up. Will I get to see him again? God knows I wanted to. And if I did, would it mean anything? And most of all, why was I having these meaningful thoughts now, of all times? I mean, I hadn't thought about him for so long, and suddenly, he shows up. What was up with all these mixed emotions?
AN: Pleez tell me anything about what you think about the story. Really want to see what people think should happen. I need help with the story! Thanx again for the reviews on I Said I'm Sorry!! Yes, I actually have some replies to reviews that I want to do.
Bookworm0408: Ok, thank you thank you thank you for everything you said. I love getting input from reviewers! Sorry, but I think I'm going to have the suicide thing in again. Don't worry, though, I won't make it graphic. I can't write like that, anyway. Pleez don't be mad at me and PLEEZ keep reading this.
Yinyangqueen: Okay. I was extremely delighted by your review. I'm glad you're so into the story, and it really touched me that this was one story you couldn't give up on. Well, here's the sequel you asked for. I just got this sudden inspiration today, and I had to write it down. Thanks so much!
Mercumz: Ok, mol, you're thinking strangely. NO reincarnations whatsoever. MAYBE the kids thing, but I seriously doubt it. You still have to explain the clenchy-jaw thing to me.
Megs82: Thanks for reviewing. I'm glad you found my story, even if it was at the end.
Loudslashproud: Thank you! I'm really honored that you put me on your list of good stories or whatever. Um. . . yes, obviously there is going to be a sequel. Hope you follow along.
Lyss: Thanks for everything. I'm glad YOU thought the poem didn't suck, but I really didn't like it. Hope you keep reading this. Maybe you'll update? Hint hint.
Angelicphyre: Thank you for reviewing! I hope you read this story, too, and my other one, A Chance for Romance. I don't know, it's your choice. I already sent you an email.
Giggle-angel: Ahhh, yes. A faithful reviewer. It's touching that my story made you cry and everything. Have you read A Chance for Romance? Don't remember if you have, but if you haven't, please check it out. Anyway, I'm starting this sequel.
