Part 053

Fifty Three

“So how many drinks have you had since you stopped crying?” Tia asked as she joined Jenny on the couch.

“I d’no,” she replied.  “Nana’s in bed?”

“Yeah, I checked on her, like you asked.  She’s a real trip, eh?”

“Oh yeah, ain’t it?”

Tia moved a little closer.  “There was… a lot of interesting stuff said tonight.”

“Things you could use in your piece?  Hope it gets a big award; there’s gold in that stuff.”

“Yeah, you could say that.”

Jenny raised her head slightly.  “The way you said that…  What’sat mean?”

Tia took a long moment to shift and face Jenny before she replied, “We talked about a lot of things tonight, some of which really picked up my ears.”


And there were some things said that just…  I don’t know if I’m saying this right, so you may have to be patient with me.”

“Are you trying to come on… Oh, come on,” Jenny said as she tried to keep her head upright.

“Hear me out.  Now, have I done anything to make you worried or concerned?”

“Geez almighty, you just being here makes me that way!”

“Fine,” said Tia, “but beyond that, have I actually done anything that makes you not trust me?”

“Uhhh…  No, not really.”

“Okay, fine.  Now, I’ve noticed that since I entered your life, you’ve been…  well, very open with me about what you do.”

“It’s true,” Jenny said, adding, “maybe ‘cuz I’m stupid…”

“I don’t think so,” Tia said as she moved closer.  “I think you don’t give yourself all that much credit.”

“I suppose that’s sort of right, ain’t it?”

“Now,” Tia moved closer still,  “since you trust me so much, can I trust you?”

“Trust you?”

“Yes; I need you to trust me.”

Jenny was paying very close attention as Tia
