Author's note: That's right this is a New York Undercover fanfic. I used to love that show. The season finale in 1997 broke my heart. Hey I am a huge Eddie Torres fan. Here is my opinion of what would have happened when JC told Nina.
Second author's note: There's a little bit of cussing. Sorry but Nina did call Jordan that on the show. The song in the fic is called "Blue Moon Revisited." By the Cowboy Junkies.
Time frame: Following The Last Hurrah.
Nina hurried to the door in hopes that Eddie had finally come home. However, it was JC. Nina unlocked the door and let him in. "What can I do for you JC? Eddie's not home yet." She said closing the door.
"It's about Eddie. I think you should sit down. I told everyone I should be the one to tell you."
Nina sat down and looked at him in anticipation. "What is it JC?"
"When Eddie was leaving he didn't know that someone had messed with the car. He got in and hit the gas. The car had a bomb in it." JC had to stop to keep from completely breaking down into tears.
"You can't be saying he's dead are you?" She cried. Tears streaming down her face as JC nodded.
"I couldn't warn him." JC said.
"You...you...you knew?" Nina was furious. "Who was it?" JC didn't answer her. "It was Jordan wasn't it? Wait till I get my hands on that bitch." She threw a cup at the wall narrowly misses JC.
"Nina calm down!" JC said grabbing her hands.
"What do you mean calm down? Dang it JC! She took Eddie and McNamera! I'm not about to take this sitting down. JC Eddie's...my...my..." Nina couldn't finish that because she started crying uncontrollably.
JC sat next to her and wrapped his arm around his partner and both sat there crying.
She felt someone squeeze her shoulder from behind her. Nina turned around and saw Virginia Cooper, better known as Lou, sitting behind her. "Hi Lou." Nina said attempting a smile.
"How are you holding up?" She asked.
"As well as can be expected I guess." Nina said sadly.
"Call me anytime Nina. That goes for you too JC." JC shrugged. The minister, who was also Eddie's brother, stood up and began the sermon.
When it was Nina's turn to speak she got up and walked to the podium slowly. "Thank you all for coming. I never realized that Eddie had this many friends. Eddy was my husband and I'll miss him. I want him to know where he is that I still love him and I'll never forget him." She said and then backed away from the podium to let JC speak.
"Ed and I have been partners for years. We've been through so much together. It almost seems unreal that he's gone, that both he and McNamara are gone. Ed knew everything about my life and vice versa. It's going to be hard with that part gone." JC said and stepped away from the podium.
After the service Nina looked down at the coffin that was made knowing
her husband's body wasn't in there but she knew part of him had to be.
"Goodbye my love." She whispered.
