The One Who Completes Me.

I was at my boyfriends apartment.  We had been dating for a few months when he confronted me, asking me questions about a boy I had one date with in high school.  He said:  What is going on with you and Jack?  I said Jack who?  He said Jack Hyde.  I said "who"?  Oh, we went to high school with him.  Did you see him?
Yeah, I saw him alright.  He told me how you broke his heart.  I was embarrassed.  Why can't you treat people the way you want to be treated, Kate?  I said"  I don't know what you are talking about.  Jack broke MY heart.  He had a girlfriend named Sarah.  That's why I never went out with him again.
Then Mike said I think you are protesting too much.  I think there are still some strong feelings there.  I got upset.  I said No, I don't know what he said to you but I haven't seen the guy in many years.
That's when it happened.  The room started spinning in a lopsided circle.  The floor slid out from under my feet.  I fell into the couch.  I felt so dizzy.  I put my head between my knees then attempted to sit up.  And I said softly, something really bad happened to Jack, didn't it?
Mike said:  Oh, I didn't know you were Clairvoyant.  I was gasping for air at that point and I said What happened?  Is Jack okay.  Mike sat silently.  Is Jack okay I asked again.  Then I saw Jack.  Pale and sitting in a wheelchair in a hospital room.  Then Mike said:  Jack is fine, Kate.  Jack is fine.  Then I saw the darkness.  A parking garage, cars.  I said:  It WASN'T a car accident....He came close to dying but he didn't.  Did someone do this to Jack?  What happened to Jack?  I couldn't breathe.  I was gasping.
Mike assured me that Jack was okay.  He had seen him earlier that day...I was still concerned.  I asked if Jack had someone.  Mike said yes.  Jack is married. 
Mike never got over my reaction and insisted that I still had unresolved feelings for Jack.  I tried to deny it.  Mike and I broke up. 
Three years later Jack was mugged in an airport.  He struggled with the assailant for the gun.  Both were shot.  The robber was killed.  Jack was taken to the hospital.  He came close to dying but survived. 
I learned about his near death experience 12 years later when he confided in me. 
I may never know why I had the premonition or what brought us together after so many years.  But I do know that I Love him.  And with him my life, my soul, my spirit feels complete.  And without him, empty.  I Love Jack with my whole heart.  And Jack Loves me.
He says that he has loved me his entire life and that he always will.   I know now you are probably thinking that we ride off in the sunset together.  But this isn't just some love story that someone made up.  It's all a more realistic ending.  Jack and I will never be together.  You see, Jack is someone else.
