SUMMARY: Abby is a little upset about her AWOL brother, and as soon as Carter appears, she, (and I) lose all thought of her brother. He makes everything better..*Aww*

You Make Me Forget

Abby didn't know what to think as the realization that her baby brother Eric, was missing set in. Baby, yeah right. He's a grown man, she thought. He's just makes stupid, childish decisions. Her ever-flowing thoughts didn't comfort Abby in the least. She needed to talk to someone. Someone she could trust, who would listen and not jump down her throat with plans. She needed to talk to Carter.

John Carter. The thought of him sent shivers down her back. She loved that man, she really did. It scared her almost as much as not knowing where her AWOL brother was, this love. She'd loved him since, well, the first time she had seen him, her first day in the ER. But that was years ago. Relationships had come and gone, friends and lovers died, gone, some forgotten. Now they were together, ever since that fateful Smallpox outbreak. They weren't Smallpox, she corrected herself. She didn't care what they had been, she was just happy, in a morbid way, that 'they' had brought her and Carter together.

Abby snapped painfully back to reality as she heard the phone ringing in the next room of her apartment. Running to answer it, she was not at all surprised to find that it was, in fact, Carter.

"John! I was just about to call you, " Abby exclaimed, amazed at how he seemed to have read her mind.

"Its all about the ESP, Abby, " John answered, laughter evident in his adorable voice, "But, I wanted to make sure you were okay. I know you were pretty shaken up by Eric tonight. The dinner, Jody, and all." The laughing tone of voice had become more serious with the subject change.

Wow. This man is amazing. He knows what I'm thinking before I know. "Yeah. It was a lot to take in, especially since we don't know where Eric, or Jody, for that matter, is,", Abby sighed, having said that, "I'm just really.. uh.confused, John."

"Oh, Abby. I know, I know it must have been so hard for you, and I'm sorry, baby. Do you need company, or do you just want to relax a little?"

Abby couldn't help but love the man more at this moment than the last. He was so sweet, and she knew he was as tired, if not more tired, than she was, having just gotten off work. But, the thought of spending time with him, even if it weren't intimate, which, with how things had been lately, wasn't really a possibility, was incredibly enticing. So enticing, in fact, that she couldn't stop the words that escaped her now eager lips next:

"Do I need company? Do I want company? More than ever, in fact. I'll see you in a few minutes? ", She asked, knowing his answer.

"I'll be there as soon as the traffic allows, Abby. Until then, I love you."

"I love you too, John."

**A few minutes later, Abby hears his knock possibly before he even delivers It.**

She anxiously throws the door open, smiling up at him in the dim light cast by the apartment hall lights. God, he's gorgeous.

"Been waiting long? " he laughingly asks, poking slight fun at the immediate answering of the door.

"No, I was expecting the Chinese food delivery guy. Its only you."

"Then I suppose I should leave, huh?"

"Oh, no you don't, "she smiled, pulling him in for a short kiss on the lips. This seemingly 'short' kiss turned into a longer, more passionate one, causing Abby to pull back, gasping for air. Damn, she thought. He looked down at her, smiling, staring into her gorgeous brown eyes, his reflected in them. She smiled, almost overwhelmed by the love she felt for him, almost forgetting about Eric and Jody, almost forgetting to breath. He smiled at her questioningly, asking silently if she was really okay. She nodded. She was okay now.

He leaned down, while she reached up, and kissed her. She returned his kiss with hunger, a passion that hadn't been there with anyone else he had ever kissed. The spark that had been there in their first kiss in the trauma room during the Quarantine was still there, possibly stronger than ever. Realizing this, she opened her eyes and smiled at him, doing the same thing. He was probably thinking the same thing, she thought, Amazing.

Realizing that he was standing there, eyes focused solely on her now, she slowly began to run her fingers through his soft, at times unruly, brown hair. She loved his hair. She kissed him, working her fingers through his hair, down his neck, and now over his shoulders, fingering the soft almost silky material of his windbreaker that he had yet to take off. Maybe I should help him with that, she thought, devilishly. She slowly unzipped his windbreaker, laughing at him as he blushed, both realizing that they hadn't gotten past the hall yet, a mere 4 feet from the front door where she'd exuberantly let him in minutes before.

"I guess we got a little side tracked, huh? "He asked, smirking; coyly, yet looking rather happy with himself.

"Maybe a little, "she commented, her eyes and hands never leaving his body.

"Abbs, are you going to tease me all night, or are you going to let me take off my jacket and let us go, at least, sit on the couch?"

"Well, now that you mention it, I wouldn't mind teasing you all that much.. as for the couch, I say we skip it and head on to the bedroom. What do you say?" He needn't say anything; she had made up her mind. She playfully, and seductively led him down the hall to her bedroom, closing the door behind them.

**What went on behind that closed door, is left for another chapter of this fan-fic, that is, if you all liked this one enough to read a second. All I'll say is that, behind that door, there were a few moans of "Carter", and "Abby".And that the whole AWOL brother and his hardly adult girlfriend was completely forgotten, having started with the first thought of John Carter. Isn't that love, folks?**
