Nice photo’s. Thank you for sharing.
Reese was so happy in this episode he forgot himself and complimented Carter on her looks, not just her skills.
A phone call
Kara picked up her cell phone, the incessant ringing brought her from the other room where she’d been having a late meal.
"Carter’s gone," it was Snow, and she was slightly taken aback at the surprising news. Just what was it in that file that Carter had retrieved from Wren’s office? She hadn’t asked before, but apparently whatever it was that Joss saw, warranted a reason for the agency to get rid of her. "We’re heading to Vienna in the morning. 4am."
"Understood." She went back to the dark room in the safe house, the stark lamp at the table illuminated the room and her plate. The steak that was savoury before was now bitter as she swallowed it down.
Joss stepped into the Mediterranean style home, taking in the lovely decor. She dropped her bags as soon as she got in and felt the warm breeze as it flowed through the open space. She could smell the ocean. She took a few steps to the back of the house, the view of the water beckoning her to come closer. There was no one inside, though she called out, there was no answer. She walked outside onto the patio, and was in awe of the beach spread out before her. It was December, but for once there was no snow, no gray sky, no need to wear a heavy coat or gloves to stay warm. She was dressed in a coral sundress and sandals, the perfect attire for a day like this.
She walked onto the beach and that’s when she saw him, dressed in short khakis, bare chested and carrying a water bottle. He smiled as they walked toward each other and she couldn’t help the tears that stung her eyes as they met face to face. It felt like it had been ages since she’d seen him last.
"I was wondering how long it would take you to get here," he said.
3 Weeks earlier
Joss sat atop John in his bed. Her fingers were twined with his and she straddled him, feeling his thighs next to hers. She did her best to joke and lighten the mood, but his face though amused by her current story was pensive.
"What’s the matter?" she asked him.
"I’m lying here…..wondering…..just how you plan to do it," he answered.
"Kill me," he said and she froze. Immediately her mind worked out an exit strategy, if he was on to her, she’d have to move fast. "I wonder…..if you’ll really do it, Joss."
"How did you know?"
"I didn’t get to be as influential and rich as I am without having some connections. I’ve known what you were after from the beginning."
She moved away from him, and as she rose from the bed, he was right behind her, grabbing her arm, pulling her close.
"You don’t understand….I still want you."
"What?" she was confused as his arms went around her. "Are you crazy?"
"Maybe I am, but……we can figure this out. We can still be together."
"We’ve known each other for less than a month." she said hissing through her teeth. She wouldn’t kid herself into thinking this was some fairytale romance. She knew he was just stalling, biding his time, thinking of a way to get out of what they both knew she had to do.
"And yet it feels like it’s been a lifetime," he spun her round and she met his eyes. She cursed herself for doing it. They were almost translucent now and the honesty she’d seen in them from the beginning was back. "Tell me you don’t feel that too." he murmured with his lips dangerously close to hers.
She couldn’t. She couldn’t deny that she didn’t feel it. If he was crazy, then so was she, because she was falling and she couldn’t stop it. She kissed him, hard and her mission was forgotten as she mashed her mouth against his.
"Joss….Joss…….what are we going to do?"
"It’s taken me a while to get here, and now…..Joss Carter is dead."
"Welcome to the club," John said as he held onto her hand. The sun was setting and they walked along the shore together. "We can be who we want to be now, not who others expect us to be."
"And what about Wren? How’s he going to manage?"
"Harold is used to changing identities. He’ll do fine," he kissed the back of her hand.
"Are you sure about that?"
"Positive." he promised and turned her to face him while his arms slid around her.
"And what about us? We barely know each other, John."
"But we will. We have all the time in the world to do it. And….I did promise….to get some sand between your toes.”
"Well that’s a good start," she smiled against his mouth. "A very good start."

I was thinking, i’ve never uploaded it here, so why not now…
This is my first Careese video, and it was a long time ago, but i still remember my feelings and thoughts about them. John&Joss relationship have always been and will be very special to me. And even if i’m very angry and disappointed now, i still wouldn’t refuse them from the beginning. But i do regret that all this time i just postponed and hadn’t made more video before. You can’t even imagine how many projects i had in my mind. Now all of them is kind of pointless and very upsetting. But anyway, i’m going to make another 1 or maybe 2, later…
