Tans - Round 23
David chuckled. "I know just how you feel. I missed you like crazy."
Jenny & Quinn glanced at each other and then back at their daughter. A truce was called and they joined together to wish Krista & David well. In a flurry of activity, Krista had packed a bag and was gone.
Collapsing on the couch together, they warily felt each other out.
Jenny turned slightly and asked, "So now what?"
Quinn shook his head. "I just don't know, Jenny. We're no good for each other."
Jenny hung her head. "I wouldn't say that. We've always been good for each other. There was just too much baggage." Sadly she got up and walked into the room and shut the door.
They'd both hurt each other too much to go forward. Hadn't they?
But, they couldn't get divorced right before Krista's wedding. It just wouldn't be right. Maybe afterwards they would go their separate ways.
What hurt was that despite all the hard times they'd had together - Jenny still loved him...
Jenny swallowed the lump in her throat. "I know," she said quietly. Mentally, she tried to ready herself for the end...
Jenny blinked tears. "What?"
"You were right. We are good for each other. We have three amazing kids and have shared so many ups and downs. Why give up now? I was hurt to discover that Kurt wasn't mine.. but you were right... it wasn't anything worse than I'd done to you time and again. My pride was just too hurt to see."
"You mean it?" Jenny asked, not daring to breath.
"I do. And I'm sorry for all the times I've hurt you. Let's start fresh. Does that sound good?"
"That sounds wonderful!"
