The 39 steps
August 20, 2008
It’s 39 days to go until the start of season 3 in America.
There are 39 episodes for season 1 and 2. (Not taking the unaired episode in account or the original pilot, as not everybody can see those)
I started to watch the episodes again. One episode a day.
And then I got the plan to write a small scene for every episode. (Never more than 1 page long

Summary: Jason wants to call.


His hand is hovering over the phone. He bites his lip. He should call. He remembers the message when Robert and Kitty lost their baby… Kevin had sound really upset.. “I’d like to hear from you…” He said. And Jason had been ‘this’ close to calling Kevin. But then he became afraid. If he would hear the voice of the man he loved he wouldn’t be able to resist. He would tell Kevin how miserable he felt without him, and that would upset Kevin. And himself.

But this morning, when he came in, there are two messages on his machine. “Jase, I will be at mom’s today, if you want to call me, do it on my cell-phone. Don’t call me at home.” And later on: “Jase, I am not sure I can call you tonight. Justin is using drugs again and we’re going to give help him … It’s scary, but I am sure he’ll be alright. I am still at mom’s. It’s going to be a long night. I’d love to hear from you. Bye.”

But he had no time to think about it, he had gone to work immediately, but now that he was back ‘home’, he has the time and he’s wondering if he should call Kevin. Just to ask how Justin is doing… But to hear Kevin’s voice would remind him of quiet evenings in bed, or the afternoon they spent on the beach. Conjure up images of his church and his people there. He still thought about them regularly, missing them. At moments like this he even missed Mrs Jardins, who, he was sure of it, was a direct descendant of the snake that had seduced Eve in Paradise.

He would think of Robert and Kitty and the other Walkers, but most of all, he would think of Kevin. He closes his eyes and says a quick prayer for strength, so he can get through a telephone call with Kevin without feeling homesick, but just as he is about to dial Kevin’s number, his phone rings, The number displayed is from Robert…
“Yes, Robert”

“I am so glad to get you on the phone. Listen is there any chance you can come home for a few days?”
“Why? Is there an emergency?”
“Kitty and I are getting married and I want you to be my best man.” Robert sounds so happy!
“Congratulations…. Yes, I could ask if I can go home… I will even pay for my own ticket…” Jason is suddenly filled with hope.

“You know, Robert, don’t say anything to Kitty or Kevin. I want it to be a surprise.” He laughs, as Robert agrees with him. “Don’t say anything yet. I don’t want to make Kevin happy and just yank it away, if we get a “no”.” He explains and Robert agrees again. They talk a little more and he finds out that Justin is alright. When Robert finally hangs up Jason is feels alive again. He cannot imagine the church will turn down his request… In a few weeks time he’ll be back with Kevin. His hand rests on the phone. But then he decides not to call. There is plenty of time for that later.
