Friend, best friend, pal, confidant, companion, soul mate… lover. To Jayne Ramsey, Rick Cooper was all of the above, except for the latter two: soul mate and lover. He was not only her friend; he was her best friend. He was her confidant, her companion, her pal. She would go as far as to say he was her soul mate, but they were not lovers, nor had they ever been intimate… romantically or sexually, anyway.
Being the same age and growing up together because their parents were the best of friends; the two were like brother and sister. Jayne shared everything with Rick and him with her. The only things they didn’t share were their true feelings for one another.
Each one silently longed for, dreamed of, fantasied and desired to be both the latter of the two: soul mate and lover. Rick was game, but kept it to himself because he knew Jayne wasn’t. She couldn’t bear to lose him as her friend if they ever crossed that thin line and things didn’t work out between them.
Not wanting to waste his virile youth, or his time on trying to convince an unwilling Jayne to give them a chance, Rick decided to play the field, or the ocean, as it were in his case, and became a ladies' man. He even managed to acquire himself a nickname around town: Rock Hard Rick and he lived up to his reputation; though he wasn’t happy.
All Jayne ever wanted was Rick and all Rick ever wanted was Jayne - Jaynie or sis - as he’d always called her, and if and when she ever came around, he would be there for her, no matter what or who might try to stand in his way.
