Drabble for lost_in_108: Scars Remain (Juliet)

I must be careful not to jinx it.
It's a crap title, I know. Drabble titles are hard. :(

Title: Scars Remain
Characters: Juliet, Sawyer
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Through LaFluer
A/N: For lost_in_108 prompt #11, "reminder".

By now Juliet's past seems a hundred years away. Despite it all, she's convinced she's done a fair job of leaving it behind, focusing instead on the here and now.

Ironically, it's the here and now that brings it all back.

She feels James hesitate, and he stops kissing her back and stares, his gaze suddenly hardening. At first she doesn't remember. But when she feels his fingers gently tracing the scab, the past (future?) is suddenly very present.

That's the purpose of the mark, after all - to remind her that she can never escape.

She feigns a headache.

James doesn't ask, and she hopes he never will.
