Spring 1994. When a silver Lexus pulls up to the curb sixteen-year-old Jensen thinks it’s just another job, thinks he’ll crawl out of the backseat with someone’s taste in his mouth, a wad of bills in his hands and another memory he doesn’t want. He thinks he’ll return to his silent and trusting Jared with someone else’s scent on his skin and tomorrow’s meal in his pocket. It’s just a job, just another job…

I first off want to thank my wonderful friend/hand-holder/cheerleader/beta/goddess, willow_fae_20. Without her constant encouragement and her willingness to look over this, I would never have gotten further than the first page. She also may have talked me out of quitting more than a few times, even if she doesn't know it. Second, I want to extend a huge thanks to my other beta, smidirini, who helped me take the raw version and shape it into something usable. Finally, I want to thank velence for the fantastic art to go along with my story. Velence captured the mood and themes of the story so perfectly, each piece of art is like a snapshot out of my own head.

lol, how long were you waiting to comment? It must have been driving you nuts, knowing it was here and it being hidden from everyone else. XD

OMG!!! Seriously? Since you gave me the link the day you got it all set up. So, something like 4 months? I think.

I♥U So Much.

hahahahaha, It was all my fault for being so far ahead of posting schedules. But I'm going to do it again with the RPF big bang, if I can even find a bandom beta to help me with cannonization of characters. *sigh*

♥U2, bb. OMG, I could never have done this without you!

LoL, better to be early I guess. I'm sure you'll find someone who'll be willing to look it over for you.

*flails at you like a flailing thing* You have basically rendered me incoherent. The last half of this reduced me to tears. I am completely wrung out by the...experience of this, it is absolutely brilliant.

Flails! I got flails! *cherishes the flailing thing flailing at me*

but really, thank you so much. I'm sorry it was so emotionally draining but I'm happy you liked it. And completely flattered. Thanks hun *hugs*

That was an amazingly powerful story - great characters, not overly melodramatic, and hopeful despite the desperate circumstances.

thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

I am in love. This is so creative.

I'm not done, but I have a question. How old is Jared? I get confused when the dates switch and what not.

I'm glad you're enjoying it :)

Jared is 11 during the "present" day parts of the story. I'm sorry it's confusing

That was one of the most powerful things I have ever read... I can honestly say that there are 3 fics that I have thus far read that make me cry, stop breathing, and never forget them. This was one of them.

This is, hands down, one of the best fics I've ever read. All the elements that make for riveting storytelling are here. This is the quality to which all writers should aspire.

Thank you so much for sharing your talents.
