An established relationship story.

Written: July 2009. Word count: 300.



As he drove home from the office, Tony thought back to two conversations he'd had. The first one with Jeanne, when she'd tried to ask him why they hadn't slept together yet; the second with Jenny, when he'd gone to her for advice. Had it been advice he'd been seeking? Or had he wanted her to make it easy for him, and either order him to sleep with Jeanne or order him not to?


Whatever it was, it really didn't matter. The two things that stood out in his mind were Jeanne telling him she was ready when he was, and even more vividly Jenny asking him what the problem was.


The problem was simple: he was falling in love with Jeanne and he shouldn't be. And he could tell she was starting to feel the same. It wouldn't end well, it couldn't. And somehow when he walked away from her, when the truth came out, it would be ten times worse if he'd slept with her. It wasn't just that he really liked her, that he was attracted to her, and that he was falling in love with her, it was that he respected her. He respected her in a way he'd never respected a woman before.


Plus, as he'd said to Jeanne, he didn't want to rush things. He didn't want it to be like it always had been in the past. He didn't just want sex, he wanted more - and that was dangerous. Because he couldn't have more, or could he? Could it end well? Was there anyway he could get Jenny what she wanted and still keep Jeanne?


"In your dreams, DiNozzo," he said.


End well or not, he knew the day would come when he'd have to sleep with Jeanne, and then what would happen?
