Conclusion and resolution of Jason's saga of humiliation.
" He gave a short, bitter snort, "Hell, she's the only that's safe."
Matt sent Jake a look of understanding, "I know you had a tough time of it, bud. You're dad was one of the meanest drunks I've crossed, and I know that affected you." He shook his head, "Hell, you shut all of us out."
Jake shot up out of his chair. He walked to look out the window and focused on breathing, focused on picturing Daisy's face.
"She keeps me sane, Matt. I used to try to push her away, thought I was too damaged by that son of a bitch." Simmering anger and rage hoarsened Jake's voice. He turned to his friend, "But I need her, Matt. I'm done lying to myself."
With a searching look, Matt asked, "You won't hurt her?"
"Never." It was a statement of fact.
Letting go of a breath, he didn't know he had been holding, Matt stood up and thumped his friend on the back. "I'm glad. I know you're a good man, Jake."
The two men looked each other in the eye, and knew they were both speaking the truth.
"So, now that that's settled, what was it you wanted to ask me?" Matt asked as he sat back down.
Jake returned to his leather chair and grinned. "I wanted to see if you'd be open to being my best man."
Shock rounded Matt's eyes, "Jake, I-I-..." Standing up, he bowed low with a smirk, "It would be an honor."
Sighing, Jake just shook his head, "Quit being an idiot. Or I'll change my mind."
Matt stood up straight and tipped his hand off his forehead, military fashion, "Yes, sir."
"Should've gone with the other brother," Jake groaned to himself.
Giving him an 'are-you-kidding' look, Matt just shook his head. "Pssh, you joking? First off, Mack is too young; he wouldn't know what to do. Probably get light beer and male strippers. Second, Maddox is too serious, he'd never part with his books long enough to fulfill best man requirements. Third, they both would throw a god-awful Bach party in comparison to, yours truly here."
It was Jake's turn to smirk, "Then I guess I can't replace you."
"Nope. I'm numero uno here, bud."
"Well that settles it." Elbows on the desk, Jake leaned forward. "Here anything from Daisy lately?"
Matt lifted a brow, "She's your fianc__. Shouldn't you know?"
It was Jake's turn to sift his hands through his hair in frustration, "She told me I had to give her some time and space. Since I'm 'being ridiculous' with my wedding demands she's cut my visitation privileges."
"That's priceless. What demands are she upset with?" laughed Matt.
Looking around the office, in a nonchalant manner, "I just said that she had two weeks before I hauled her down the aisle."
Matt's eyes bugged out. "You gave a woman, my sister, only two weeks to plan her wedding? Buddy, I'm a dude here too, but the ladies take this marriage stuff a little differently than us."
Rubbing the back of his neck, Jake grimaced, "Yeah, she's already informed me of that fact... talked me into giving her a full month."
Grinning, Mat nodded in agreement, "So generous of you there."
"I can't wait much longer than that; with all of the planning and organizing she says she can only see me on certain days at certain times. Complete bull. I'm going to go see Daisy today, whether it's a visitation day or not." Jake shuddered, "I'll even offer my help with the wedding plans."
Nodding, Matt added, "It takes a brave man to go cake shopping."
Jake threw a paper ball at him.
"Hello, I'm Daisy McKean, Mrs. Jake McKean." Daisy looked at her reflection at the bridal shop. Standing on the pedestal-dais in front of the floor-length mirror, she looked at herself critically.
Rotating to her side, Daisy let out a puff of frustration. She hated this one too.
"Momma, this one isn't it. I don't feel it," she said.
Nodding her head, Donna Jones agreed with her daughter.
