A Jackson/Ashley fic
Title: It's True Love
Summary: Jackson and Ashley go see some fireworks
Warnings: I don't own Jackson or Ashley
Jackson's hand was in mine as we walked down the sidewalk with Nikki and Kellen.
A blanket was draped over my arm.
Jackson swung his arm between us as we walked.
We were heading towards the fairgrounds. The Fourth of July was coming up and we were going to watch the local fireworks show.
The sun was just slipping down over the horizon when we entered the grounds.
Jackson and I got separated from Nikki and Kellen, but I really didn't mind, I liked being alone with Jackson.
We pushed our way through the crowd of people until we found an empty spot where we could sit.
I laid the blanket down on the gentle slope of the small hill.
Jackson and I were just lying down on the blanket as the first firework went off.
The night air was cool, so I cuddled closer to Jackson for warmth.
Jackson glanced at me and smiled, wrapping his arm around me and pulling me even closer.
"It's pretty isn't it" Jackson mumbled as the sky exploded again with purple light.
"Yeah, it is" I agreed turning to look at him now, and smiled.
Jackson returned it and slowly brought his hand up and rested it against my cheek.
The simple touch had my heart hammering.
Jackson ran his thumb along my cheek bone, it tingled slightly were he touched.
Then he started to bring his face closer to his.
"There you guys are!" Kellen yelled when our lips were only and inch apart.
Jackson sighed and pulled away.
We both laid back on the blanket.
We were barely touching each other now.
After the show was over I picked up the blanket and we started for the hotel.
"Do you want to hang out at my room tonight, maybe watch a movie?" Jackson asked in a low voice.
I smiled at him. "Yeah that sounds nice"
Jackson smiled and took my hand again.
I tried to control the butterflies in my stomach.
It wasn't long before we arrived at the hotel. Kellen and Nikki went off into Nikki's room without another word to us.
I followed Jackson up to his room.
"Sorry if it's messy" he murmured as he slid the card into the slot.
Jackson opened the door and pulled me inside.
"What do you want to watch?" he asked me as he led me to the bed.
I shrugged "Anythings fine" I told him.
Jackson let go of my hand and went over to the T.V. stooping down to put a DVD in the player and pressed play.
We laid on the bed as the picture appeared on the screen.
We were laying sideways on the bed, our feet off the side.
Jackson's body was curled around mine, his arm draped lightly over my waist.
I tried not to think about it too much.
"Hey Ashley?" Jackson said after a while.
"Hmm?" I replied turning to look at him.
Without warning Jackson's lips crashed onto mine.
My arms locked automatically around his neck.
Jackson's hand slid to the small of my back.
We broke apart, and Jackson rested his forehead against mine.
"I love you Ashley Greene" he said softly.
"I love you too Jackson Rathbone" I replied and he pressed his lips to mine.
