Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011. Day 174. Prompt from tw100: Challenge #202-K is for Potassium. Request from talkingtothesky: Jack/Gwen-Reunion. Unbeta'd. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: The love is unspoken, but he has to say something.
The bar was noisy and crowded, a Times Square tourist trap, full of frat boys and matinee-goers, but as far as Jack was concerned, there was no one in the world but him and Gwen.

“What on earth for?”
“For the potassium.”

“I tweaked the retcon formula to replenish the electrolytes. I think that’s why it didn’t work on you. You could have had a normal life.”
“Oh Jack,” she smiled, reminding Jack exactly what he’d come back for, and raised her glass.
“Here’s to potassium.”
