"Letting Go"

TNG: Picard/male; drabble

"I'm getting married."

Jean-Luc sat up and looked at his lover of two years. "What?"

Jack sat up beside him, sadness and resolution warring in his eyes. "I asked her today."

Jack had started dating Beverly, while he was still seeing Jean-Luc. Since their relationship had continued, Jean-Luc never imagined his friend and the pretty redhead would get serious.

"You're sure?" he choked out.

Jack put his hand on Jean-Luc's leg. "I never meant to hurt you. I just... fell in love."

"Whatever makes you happy, Jack. That's all I want." Jean-Luc smiled, never letting on he was dying inside.
