Somewhere down the road…01/06

By: Marea67
Kevin/Scotty mainly
Rate: This chapter:  G
Disclaimer: B&S or K/S don't belong to me, but to ABC
Summary: What if Kevin cannot forgive Scotty, can they find their way back to each other?  Thanks to FatCat for reminding me of this beautiful Barry Manilow song.
Extra: Forgot to say: As this is AU - Jason (and Chad) are not a part of Kevin/Scotty's life. Robert died immediately after the accident

I've almost finished this one, so I know how long it will be, but i have no idea how many chapters there will be, as I haven't figured out, where I"m going to put the END OF THIS CHAPTER lines. I usually take approx 3 Word-pages for a chapter, but I might take more or less pages this time. Don't know yet. Anyhow.... ON to the story.....


Coffee for one. Slice of bread for one. Orange juice for one. Apple for one… Scotty looks at his breakfast and sighs. He should be used to it by now, it’s been nearly 4 months, but the table still looks frighteningly empty, without Kevin’s coffee, Kevin’s breakfast and Kevin himself there.

He opens the news-paper, but the headlines, about a court-case against a man who killed his wife and child, makes Scotty put aside the newspaper. It reminds him that Kevin is a lawyer and he doesn’t want to think about Kevin, and yet, all he has to do is look at the empty stool at the other side of the table, to know it’s no use. Kevin is always on his mind.

That is where he used to sit, where they’d talk about their day, if they had the chance to. Again, Scotty wonders if telling Kevin the truth had been the best thing to do. He tells himself it should have been, because he didn’t want to continue the lie, but, at the same time, he believes that maybe he should have better kept his mouth shut.

He had paid the price. Everything had completely spun out of control. The night Kevin found out about Marcus, Kevin had left him, angry and hurt. Then the Walkers had started to meddle and had pushed Scotty and Kevin into getting back together, which, Scotty realizes by now, they shouldn’t have done.

Kevin had felt completely with his back against the wall and he had started to fight back. He argued with Saul, walked out on Nora, slammed the door of Kitty’s house as he left and the discussion between Sarah and Kevin had escalated to the point that Luc had gently, but insistently asked Kevin to leave and cool off.

By then, Scotty had become worried sick. Kevin wouldn’t talk to him, call him, listen to him. Nothing. Scotty had started to believe that this was the end of their marriage. But life had gone on and the day after Kevin had fought with his family, Scotty had needed to get supplies from the market and Saul had not been available to do it.

Hoping it would distract him Scotty had left, but when he came back two hours later, he immediately knew that Kevin had been here. Kevin’s office was unlocked, but seemed untouched. Dreading what was to come, Scotty went up the stairs to their apartment and found that Kevin’s clothes were gone.

It was obvious that he went through some paperwork, but Scotty couldn’t say what was missing. And there had been a letter on the table: 

“Scotty, Need ‘time out’. Can’t handle this anymore. Asked Reed to take over my cases. Please, let him in to my office when he comes over. Don’t look for me. I won’t even let my family know where I am. I’m too tired to fight any longer. Love you . Kevin”.

It had made sense at the time and no one, including Scotty, had expected Kevin to simply vanish for real, but he had. He just vanished into thin air.

At first, Scotty had waited, expecting at every moment that Kevin call him, talk to him, yell at him, but he never called Scotty personally. All the news Scotty gets about Kevin is second-hand info, because Kevin calls Justin once a week, at various times, to let everyone know not to worry about him and that he’s still alive.

When he does, all he wishes to say is that he’s alright. When Justin presses the matter, asking where he is, if he’s coming home, if could please talk to Scotty, Kevin hangs up and switches off his phone and he’s out of reach again.

Everyone had tried to call him. Nora, Justin, Sarah, even Luc had made an attempt, hoping that ‘as an outsider’ Kevin would take his call, but Kevin never returned any of the calls. The only one that he seeks a minimum of contact with is Justin.

And at first the Walkers had been there to support Scotty. At first, Nora had regularly dropped in with something home-cooked, to make sure that he ‘eats properly’, but nowadays he hardly ever sees her. He understands that her life goes on too. She has other kids and grandchildren to worry about.

Saul and Scotty still work together. Saul had explained to Scotty that he was very disappointed by Scotty’s cheating, but after that one time, Saul never talked about it again. But, these days, Saul is dating a man, Jonathan, and he’s so happy, that Scotty doesn’t want to interfere.

When it comes to Kitty and Sarah, Scotty runs into a wall of silence from Kitty, Sarah and also Luc, and, once, when he had asked Paige about Kevin, she had nearly begged him not to ask her, because she didn’t want to get in trouble with her mom. So, Scotty knows that Kevin’s sisters quietly blame him for the destruction of their marriage.

Tommy had been furious with Scotty, when he found out about the cheating, because Kitty called him to ask if Kevin was with him, but Tommy was in Seattle and never called Scotty anyway.

The only one who acts ‘normal’ around him is Justin and they often talk about Kevin and Rebecca and every time Justin reminds Scotty, that Kevin and he are still married, that Kevin doesn’t seem to have taken legal steps to separate. And that this should be considered a good sign, but Scotty gave up hope a long time ago.

Sometimes, when he’s in a bad mood, Scotty suspects that the Walkers have formed a united front, where no one speaks to him about Kevin, to protect Kevin, or to perhaps even Scotty himself. But then he changes his mind and he knows it’s not true. He can see the lines of worry that have been added to Nora’s face. She’s not lying. She has no idea where Kevin is and it scares her more than she lets on.


It’s nearly lunch-time and Scotty looks around. A part of him doesn’t want to go home, because it means having lunch alone in an empty house. A part of him can’t wait to get home, because somehow having lunch here, on his own, doesn’t seem like much of an alternative.

He turns around and walks into someone. A plastic bag falls to the ground, a few papers take a little more time to fall and Scotty is already halfway his heart-felt apology when he sees who it is, he bumped into.
“Jason!” His reaction is a surprised one and it would seem he’s not the only one take off-guard.

“Scotty…” Jason picks the bag off the floor. “It’s okay, it’s unbreakable….”
“… Papers…”
“No worries there either. It wasn’t important and I think I have all the pages again…”
“I’m sorry.” Scotty says again.

They stand opposite each other for a few seconds. It’s been years since they last saw each other and it feels awkward.
“It’s been nice seeing you again.” Jason says with a polite nod and he turns around to walk away.

Scotty opens his mouth to call him back, to talk to him about Kevin. if anyone might know how much Scotty misses Kevin, it might be Jason…. But Scotty closes his mouth again, not knowing what to say. Jason hasn’t been a part of Kevin’s life for too long. It’s none of Jason’s business anyway. Jason disappears into the crowd and Scotty is alone again.

can't wait to see where this goes. I was frustrated with how the cheating storyline was resolved so quickly on the show, and am working on my own retelling of it, but it's great to see someone else's take on the story. Great work!

I know what you mean, it was all over way too quickly. Can't wait to read your story either. ;)

OMG!!! It's twice in a row in one night! luna_veritas gave me a chapter that made me feel the chills and you now really write about 'Somewhere Down the Road'!? And it's a multi-chapters fic!? Thank you honey! Can't express in word how happy I am. And ho..ho..ho..I made it to the headline! I think I may have done something good in my life to deserve all these. :D

I tried with my own 'Somewhere Down the Road' project before my old PC died, one-fifth of it has already created 5MB memory. So I was looking for another way to do it! I thought of abandoning it cuz I lost all my data on that one, but you now give me the motive to re-try again and am fully intended to finish it (can't promise I'll finish before *you* finish your fic though! :D

You know, last time I talked to you about this song and how I related it to K/S (you know mine's different cuz my version is something about S1-2), after that every time I hear the song again it made me teary. Must be the hormones. LOL! Now I really got to go read this. Are you going to make me need Kleenex?

(Sorry hon, you may find that I deleted two replies prior to this one, cuz there're some error with posting.) ...

*** Are you going to make me need Kleenex? ***

Not sure, depends on how 'hormonal' you are. :D But I do plan to make it 'have emotion'.

26th-Apr-2011 11:01 pm (UTC)
awwww...Keeevin. Where do you hide him!!!??

Anyway, I luuuuuv this already, Marea! Cuz that's how I thought Kevin could alternatively do after he's being pushed into a corner where he felt trapped. I love how this began, he lashed out, he ceased to communicate, he left, (it's just all Kevin). He's just not only angry at Scotty, but he's also angry at himself. Hence, I wish to see (in the series) and now I'm happy to read here, about the fact that it's just not so easy for Kevin to talk to Nora and everybody to simply make this all better and go away! Brilliant! I'm really looking forward to what will happen!! BTW, love all the reactions from Nora, Saul and all the siblings. Esp. love the angry Tommy! :D

You know, it's very very upsetting to see Kevin 'crossed out' the 'Love you' in his message...jeez.. you're so evil!

I love that even Luc has tried his best to help (like him there already!) and it's so natural to see that Kevin's only willing to reach out to Justin only! And poor Kevin, knowing he's somewhere dealing with this alone, like a hurt animal hiding somewhere dark and being alone and lick his own wound to heal...it broke my heart!!!!

Hey, Jason? And he didn't ask Scotty about how's Kevin? Should I feel this is weird..and suspicious? :P

I always love your comments. They make me smile (or laugh out loud sometimes)

I don't know when you'll find out more about Kevin. I can't seem to be able to decide where to put the breaklines between chapters, so I can either give it a 'cliff-hanger' or just give some resolution. Tough choices. I'll see what I'll tonight.

26th-Apr-2011 11:03 pm (UTC)
oh! that is sad... why do i have the feeling jason is involved somehow?
27th-Apr-2011 08:21 am (UTC)
Because you know I like Jason (when not Kevin's boyfriend)? ;)
27th-Apr-2011 01:41 am (UTC)
Oh yes! Am very excited about where this is going.It makes a lot of sense that Kevin would have activated his fight or flight mode especially when when they all pressured him so much.
Looking forward to more!
27th-Apr-2011 08:22 am (UTC)
Just a few hours of waiting. ;)
27th-Apr-2011 01:59 am (UTC)
Definitely wish there'd have been more of this on the show. They fixed things too quickly and then were instantly ok again. I know its tv but its just not that easy. I can picture Kevin leaving with his family butting in and trying to push them back together. Sure they mean(t) well but its got to be up to him. Should I be looking at Jason weird?

Anxious to see where this goes.
27th-Apr-2011 08:23 am (UTC)
I agree, it was too quick. On the other hand, as I still believe it was unnecessary to have Scotty cheat, I'm glad it wasn't dragging on for WEEEEEEEEKS either.
27th-Apr-2011 06:42 am (UTC)
Oh, this should be interesting - more of the kind of reaction I would expect from the amount of pressure Kevin' family was putting on him to get back to with Scotty.

Broke my heart to see the crossed out Love you - force of habit saying/writing it - I sure it's true though.

So, I'm trying to figure out if you're going to put Jason with Scotty or with you've already put him with Kevin, currently I can see it going either way.

The only answer I can give you is a huge grin.

The thing with your stories is you just never know - I guess I'll have to wait and see. I can do that, I think.... maybe.... or maybe not, lol.

I guessing Scotty for some reason
