|A Sunflower's Tears|
|1 2 3 4 5 6 Chapter 2|
As Jaycacia's feet touched the ground, the glow faded, and she stood before them, restored indeed to life. Jay Thorntree threw herself from the desk and launched herself at her beloved daughter. With her arms around the young woman, she sobbed her heart out. "Oh, Jaycacia, I never thought I'd see you again, I'm so glad your back, I missed you more than I could ever say, oh, Jaycacia..."
The girl stroked her distraught mother's - she thought of her as her mother, even though she might not actually have been - and smiled at her. She smiled at the SO, too. "And you, sir?" She said. "Have you missed me also?"
I have, the SO said simply. In fact, the only reason I was ever with your mother was that she reminded me so much of you... although you are infinitely more beautiful.
Jaycacia smiled beaufatically. "It's very kind of you to say so, husband dear," she said. "Still, I hope you still hold a little love for her - I know I do, and she does need looking after."
Ah, Jaycacia, the sunflower said, how I have missed youi. Yes, I think I can bring myself to care for her. He paused for a moment, looking at the two women. In fact, he continued, I might even be willing to give her a little comfort... with your aid. The Flower's tendrils snaked out across the floor and began to twine around Jaycacia's left leg, coiling their way up the inside of her trouser leg. Jaycacia smiled at the touch against her smooth skin.
"I think we can manage that," she said. She looked down at Jay's quivering form. "Mother," she said softly.
"... missed you and oh, my dear daughter, I-- oh!" The SO had spiralled another tendril around Jay's right leg, and at the same time, Jaycacia had lipped her hands under her mother's shirt to stroke her back. The combination startled Jay, and she lifted her head to look at Jaycacia. The younger woman smiled, and then kissed the elder firmly on the lips.
I think I'm going to enjoy this, the SO said as his fronds reached out to enfold the two women. Very much.
Jay shook her head as she finished reading the second chapter of the story. "How do they come up with this stuff?" she asked of the air.
Acacia looked up from her mug of coffee. "That's what I wondered," she said, shaking her head. "I was just glad I'm not in it."
"... no. Legal don't have any authority over me. None."
"I said nothing," Jay pointed out. "Still, it'll be interesting to see what happens next..."
Acacia looked at her friend with an expression of disbelief. "I can't believe it. You're actually enjoying this."
"Wellll... maybe a little." She threw the printout at Acacia, who ducked. "I'm famous! We've been gone for four years, and they still write stories about me!"
"Not really 'stories'," Acacia corrected. "I mean, back in the day, we'd've been sent in to kill a 'Sue like this. In fact, we were."
But Jay wasn't listening. Her eyes gleamed as she stared into space. "Faaaaaaame..."
