Jenny's POV..

"Well, that was certainly an interesting evening." I said to Daniel later that night after everyone had gone to their respective homes.

If I listened carefully, I could hear the kids in their rooms quietly talking to each other, catching up with events that have happened in their lives recently with them all being separated as we all have been.

Walking over to the walk-in, I rummaged around for some nightwear before moving some things around so that Daniel can unpack his few things that he brought with him into the spaces that were left.

"There's room here for your things if you want to unpack them while I have a shower." I said to him as he stood there in the middle of the room watching me as I moved about.

"Thank you. I'll do that while you're in the bathroom." He said which had me giving him a little smile of encouragement.

"Good. Then we can see what else  you will need more of since you didn't bring much with you." I said to him as I went to walk pass him to the bathroom, but he put out his hand to stop me for a moment.

"Jen, thank you for giving me another chance." He said quietly as he removed his touch from me when he saw that I had stiffened up the moment he put his hand on my arm.

"We'll talk about it after, okay?" I said to him with another small smile as I went into the bathroom and closed the door behind me.

Leaning against the closed door behind me, I listened for any movement that indicated what Daniel was probably doing in the other room. Then I straightened up, trying not to think at this time and just get myself in and out of the shower  before I went back into the bedroom.

To be honest, I was feeling very nervous about it.

It's been a long time since Daniel and I have been in one place together for any amount of time and I didn't know how this was going to turn out. But I said to him that we have just one more chance and I don't know how I will really feel with him touching me in an intimate way after knowing he touched her.

But I have to try, don't I? 

I didn't waste any more time getting this shower over and done with and after quickly brushing my teeth, I was walking back into the bedroom in less than ten minutes to see him sitting there on a chair beside the bed. He lifted his head up from where he was looking at the floor to look at me when I opened the bathroom door.

"I'll just have a quick shower." He said as he grabbed a pair of boxers and moved passed me into the bathroom.

"There's fresh towels in the cupboard behind the door." I said to him as he was about to close the door. "The shampoo is generic and unisex. I haven't had a chance to get anything like we usually have to use at home."

"Whatever's here is fine, Jen." He said back to me with a smile as he shut the door.

A few minutes later, I heard the shower running. That's my indication to get myself a cuppa and have one ready for him when he comes out and joins me. It's something we have usually been doing before that trip to Perth anyway. That trip changed everything for us as a married couple.

As I remembered earlier, today has really been very interesting.

Earlier that evening..

The two sisters finding themselves after so many years. They had spent the evening sitting next to each other and their conversation had been non stop with them telling each other everything they could remember that had happened in their lives up to this point.
