You Can Trust Me
Jenny came walking down the hall when she looked up and smiled. The handsome face of her boyfriend Marco stared back at her.
"Hey baby" Marco said smirking as he approached Jenny and pulled her in for a kiss.
"Hey babe" Jenny said, returning the kiss. "How was your day?"
"Ugh…it sucked! I was away from you all day!" Marco smiled as he pulled her in for another kiss.
"Uh huh" Jenny playfully said but still returning the kiss very quickly.
Both walked hand in hand down the hall and out the door. "So what will it be tonight? Dinner at my dad's restaurant? Movie?" Marco suggested.
"Umm how about a movie? More make-out opportunity" Jenny smirked as she looked up at her boyfriend.
"You know I'm always up for make out" Marco laughed as he held Jenny closed to him. The two walked until they reached Mr. Garrison's apartment.
"So I'll pick you up around 7:00?"
"Sounds perfect!" The couple shared a kiss before going separate ways.
After the movie had ended, Marco and Jenny came out of the theater holding hands and talking about the movie. After they had gotten half way to the apartment, Marco stopped and Jenny turned around to face him.
"What's the matter?" Jenny asked, worried.
"Spend the night with me." Marco said quickly. Jenny was taken aback by what her boyfriend had just asked her.
"I'm sorry, what?" Jenny asked again, hoping for a clear explanation.
"I want us to spend the night together" Marco said again, standing his ground on the words that had just come out of his mouth.
"Marco I…." not knowing what to say, Jenny just stared at the ground. She had always been a little hesitant about this topic, she knew Marco was going to bring it up eventually but she was hoping it would be later when she was ready.
It had only been a couple months since the incident with Andy, a former PA student who had tried to take advantage of Jenny. It had been so bad that Jenny was worried about being close like that with anyone, sadly including her own boyfriend.
"I know you said that you need some time because of Andy, but Jenny you know that I would never try to make you feel uncomfortable like that. I love you and you can trust me."
"I know I can, I'm sorry I don't know what's come over me. I guess you just took me by surprise, that's all. I know, I do trust you and I know you love me."
Jenny looked at her boyfriend. She looked in those gorgeous brown eyes and smiled. She wondered how she had gotten so lucky. They had been together since they were sophomores. Here it was, their senior year and they were happier than ever. Even with the school year coming to an end, they weren't worried because they know they were going to be together forever.
"Okay, I'll spend the night with you" Jenny smiled, a little shaky in her voice but was still sure what she wanted to do.
"Really? I mean, if you still need more time, I would understand. I'm sorry, maybe I shouldn't have tried to jump down your throat like that." Marco said.
"No, no you didn't." Jenny interrupted. "Like I said Marco, I know you love me and I trust you." Jenny smiled and kissed her boyfriend.
After going back to the apartment so Jenny could grab some things, they walked down until they had made it to Marco's place. They walked inside and found that they were alone. Marco's father and siblings had gone to visit other relatives and would not be back till the next night.
They made their way upstairs. Marco turned to face Jenny and noticed the nervous look on her face.
"You okay babe?" Marco said, concerned.
"Yes I think so." Jenny stuttered. But the thing was, she really wasn't sure if she was okay. She looked in front of her and knew it was her boyfriend, the one she truly loved and who she knew would take care of her. But inside her mind, she saw Andy, trying to somehow get inside of her and take all he could from her.
Marco took Jenny's hand gently. "Hey, it's only me, Andy is not here. I promise you, he will never come between us again. You have nothing to worry about."
Jenny smiled and took a step forward to be embraced in Marco's arms for a little while. Just the touch of his arms around her made her feel safe and secure. Jenny looked up and smiled at Marco, the love of her life.
"I love you so much. Nothing is going to change that, not Andy or anyone else. Andy may have taken advantage of me but he didn't damage me permanently. You are the only person I'll ever want to be with." Jenny almost had tears in her eyes reciting those words to her boyfriend.
"I love you too Jenny. And I always will"
