Coming down from working on the senior project, Johnny showered, dressed, and sat on his bed. He needed to talk to Savannah and he'd put it off for far too long. He was bracing himself for an argument because he knew she was going to be upset and he assumed pissed that he was leaving early.

So yeah, he had some explaining to do.

[[ For Savannah and SP is the name of the game. ]]

Savannah had been in a cheerful mood since her last class. She needed to pick a monologue for her final drama class next week, and thanks to Miss Ghanima, she had this interesting new physical activity that she'd need to do some more research into. She breezed into the room and smiled when she saw Johnny sitting on the bed.

"Hi sweetheart," she said bouncing down on the bed next to him.

"Hey, babe," he replied. "You're in a great mood, I see."

Great. He was just about to rain on it.

She nodded, kissing him.

"I was working with costumes and film in Drama, and I learned about this cool sport that I need to do some research on in Ghanima's class because I think I may have to start working with it as it seems fun."

"Good. Everything sounds like it's going great for you, babe." Which will make it easier, he supposed... right?

"I need to tell you something, Savannah. Uh... Sue called." A week and a half ago.

Savannah froze and pulled back to look at him.

"Is she all right? Has something happened?"

"No, she's fine," he assured her quickly. "Everyone is good; nothings happened. But... I need to go home, Savannah."

She swallowed. "For how long?" She looked at his face. "You're leaving, aren't you?"

Date: 2009-06-15 04:53 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fantastic-torch.livejournal.com
Yeah, he had a difficult time looking at her right now.

He nodded. "I have to, sweetheart."

"I see," she said softly, looking at the floor.

He reached for her hand. "Savannah, I'm sorry. Things are going great though, right? I mean... you're happy and you'll be fine."

Savannah squeezed his hand, but still didn't look at him. She had made a promise to him back when Chris and Summer left that she wouldn't fall apart on him when they said goodbye. She just knew if she looked up, he'd see her tears and that would make him feel even worse.

She nodded. She knew she'd be fine, but damn it, it hurt having to say goodbye to him.

"When?"

"Next week," he managed, bracing himself.

Savannah gasped looking up and completely forgetting she was trying to hide her emotions from Johnny.

"So soon?"

"The end of next week," he corrected, thinking that might help. "Pretty much two weeks still, babe."

He swallowed. "Please don't cry, babe. Please."

"I'm trying," she said softly, looking back down at the floor. "Really, I am."

Shit.

He dropped to his knees in front of her, his hands moving to lay against her thighs. "Baby, it will be okay. You know it will. I'll be a phone call away. We'll get together, okay? I love you."

Date: 2009-06-15 09:49 pm (UTC)

She nodded and made herself meet his eyes.

"I know. I know we will. I love you."

She swallowed hard, trying to keep to the dumb promise she had made.

He reached up, took her face in his hands, and kissed her, leaning his forehead against hers. "It will be fine," he whispered, "trust me, sweetheart."

"I do trust you," she whispered. "Always." She reached out to hold onto him.

"It's just a year... just a year. If it's as full of things as this past year has been, it will go by in no time."

She meant it to be comforting.

It wasn't comforting; not with the year they'd had.

He breathed out slowly and held her close. "It will fly by, seriously. You'll be with me again before you know it, sweetheart."

Savannah nodded against him. "It will. Soon it will be graduation for me and then no more having to live so far apart."

Date: 2009-06-15 10:30 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fantastic-torch.livejournal.com
"See? You'll be fine. And you know, we've got time to say our goodbye's. Let's save the tears for that say, hm?"

Date: 2009-06-15 10:36 pm (UTC)

"I'm not going to fall apart on you," she whispered, hugging him.

Uh huh. Sure.

"You won't," he agreed. "You're too strong for that."

He was trying to believe it.

"Of course I am," Savannah agreed, not moving away from him. "I'll be fine."

Johnny might need to get Savannah a boat for the nice little trip on River Denial she was taking.

He knew it. He knew it yet was afraid to steer her away from that river. He wasn't sure he could take the emotional break down yet.

"You'll be fine," he assured her. "We both will."

Savannah nodded and then looked into his face, doing her best to drop a mental mask over her eyes and hide the emotions there.

"Of course we will be. We're just damn awesome that way."
