She's Back!  
Title: What If? Part One: the Nightmare
Rating: PG
Author: sgfangirlfics
Pairing: Sam/Janet
Disclaimer: Not mine!
Summary: What if it had been Sam to die on that ill-fated day in Heroes? How would Janet have reacted?

Her hand found purchase in mine and molded itself to my tingling skin. A shimmering smile, dwarfing my small, shy one, filled my vision as she laughed and pulled me along the path in the forest. Trickles of sunlight spotted the already leaf blanketed floor and our boot clad feet began to set a faster pace, mimicking my heart. Her oceanic eyes gazed back at me, joyful and bright against the soft light around us. Her brilliant blonde hair was suddenly ruffled by the wind, making it form a halo-like glow around her perky face.

Sighing contentedly, I followed the woman of my dreams deeper into the forest, my short clumsy legs having trouble keeping up with her long, insanely sexy ones. She’s my sun and I will follow her bright rays of joy unwavering until I take my last breath. The sounds of the crunching beneath our feet and the chirping of the birds above mingle to form a peaceful harmony.

Finally she stops and I cascade into her, pushing her down onto the soft grass of the vividly bright patch of meadow before us, rolling slightly as I maneuver my way on top. Reveling in the giggles that envelop us, I lean down, pressing my lips to hers to begin the tongue-wrestling match of the century. The kiss turned deeper over time, each of us adoring the other one’s mouth and neck and ears as if we had never tasted them before.

Suddenly, she is not below me anyone, and I am alone in the now cold and empty grass. The sun has disappeared and I can feel the individual goose bumps rising on my arms and legs. The tears spring to my eyes as they search the darkness for the woman whose lips I can still feel against my skin as if they had just left. My lips still felt swollen, my arms longed for her to hold and my head longed to bury itself against her chest never to emerge.

I awoke sputtering and gasping for air that night, the dream still choking the edges of my consciousness as I shook it away. Then I merely waited for it to dissipate as most of my dreams did, but it fought to remain in the forefront of my mind, sinking its nasty claws into the fear that had already nestled there. My head dropped onto my upraised knees and I sighed deeply, still trying to shake the images from my memory.

It was then I felt the soft and gentle hand on my back, gliding its way up to my neck and holding there softly. “You okay?” a sleepy voice mumbled against my shoulder, her lips pressing lightly when the question was finished.

“Sam,” my brain reminded me, the very object of my dream that had vanished before my very – well, closed, but still – eyes. She was still there, the physical contact warming cold skin and sifting through the fear, dispelling the clouds.

Nodding, I turned slightly as kissed her forehead, smiling as I gazed down at a tousled blonde mop of hair that fell haphazardly into sleepy blue eyes. “I’ll be okay, sweetie,” I told her softly as I brushed some of the blonde mess from her face. “It was just a bad dream.”

She smiled sleepily and slid back down onto the bed, her arm hooking mine and pulling me down with her. Happily, I followed her, meshing comfortably onto her larger form, using her breast as a soft, very comfortable pillow. She always said we fit together perfectly and our sleeping habits usually proved that statement. And with that thought, I drifted off into peaceful sleep, the nightmare pushed to the back of my mind and dismissed. Little did I know it would come back to haunt me later.

Very much like! I love the language of it... seems poetic. Although I'm a-scared of where it's likely heading, this was an excellent teaser.

Thanks, G! I'm trying to watch Heroes Part One again so that I can start writing the next bit, but it hasn't happened yet...
