The Lies We Tell But The Secrets We Keep, Part 4


Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink, or use drugs when stressed; I write.


Gina awake Alexandria out of her sleep screaming from a bad dream. Alexandria rushes into the room and consoles her, she went back to sleep fifteen minutes later after a nice talk with Alexandria.

Later that day Alexandria ask Gina to go out with her for a girl’s night out. To continue helping Gina deal with old built up dramatically troubles from her past. Alexandria suggests they both grab a drink, sit and talk, they did just that in which they talked for hours about any and everything.

It was just what Gina needed to cope with her past emotions because it was so hard for her to deal with the pain and hurt. Alexandria assists Gina to release her fears and help her to understand by telling her, she did nothing wrong. She was a child that was unable to stop guys from sexually molesting her.

For the very first time, Gina was finally able to accept the fact it was not her fault she was sexually molested as a child and she felt free to let go of the hurt that has been pleading her life for many years. It was like tons of bricks was lifted off of her shoulders.

Gina felt so free that she walked over to the jukebox place a coin inside it begins to dance. Timmy walk-in witness her dancing when she asks him to dance. He never dances before and thought he might have two left feet, but tried to please Gina, his love for her was that strong.

He danced around on the floor with Gina as if he was a professional and he enjoyed doing it. It was something new to Timmy and he enjoyed every minute of it. This very day he realizes what he has been missing for many years as his life before Gina was all work and NO play.


Alexandria sit and watch Timmy and Gins dance around so in beat with a big smile on her face, she knew it was a start of something new for them both and she felt happy to know it was just what he wants, she hoped it was also something Gina wanted. Could love be in the air and this is the start of a new relationship?

Timmy came to share with Gina the good news of the evidence he found to solve her case when he receives the best of news to see Gina is finally dealing with her demons and He hopes she will continue to fight to take back her life.

Just to think Gina was a mischievous girl of about thirteen years, and that’s a long time. She never had a mother to lead or guide her, so it’s not like she was kept close to home, she wasn't loved nor constantly under the watchful eye of a mother.

Gina practically raised herself and did whatever she wanted, and when she did something that was wrong instead of being punished, she felt she did nothing wrong and it became the objects of the greatest attention to her.

Of course, Gina experiences a big breakthrough and, on this day, she is in the process of healing which has been something a long time to come. Timmy and Gina dance three dances and the final dance were a slow one and she leans her head against his should as he held her tight, afraid that if he let go, he'd be dreaming and awake to lose the most exciting moment of his life.

When they both left the dance-floor to sit down the look on their face was one no one never has seen or imagine before. Alexandria witnesses two people so in love and she was so pleased. Gina's heart was begging and calling for her to let go of all her past pain and to give in and give a relationship a try.


Gina experience a feeling she never felt before and she loved what she felt inside. She did not know it, but Timmy was experiencing a high that a person feels when they try drugs for the very first time, it felt heavenly to him. He never felt this way before, but he loved it and was willing to invest in this thing called love.

Gina was too tired up in her miserable world to realize Timmy has been in love with her since the very first day he laid eyes upon her. Timmy ordered champagne and they both made a toast that was the beginning of something new and hopefully, the end of Gina lies and the secrets will not affect their relationship.

Though his heart experienced a fear of something new, Timmy ignored the worrying beat and got lost in the wonderful feeling that he wanted to last forever. He only hopes Gina will continue to choose to let go of the past and be able to give her heart to him.

Timmy was not a mind reader and had NO ideal Gina had given him her heart. She saw him for the black knight and shining armor savior he was and thought that he could be her first love, someone worth investigating time, passion and commitment in a relationship.

The big question is does she cherish the day that he came into her life and gave her the necessary tools and means for her to let go of her girlhood misery? Will she be someone Timmy could love and trust? Letting go of a life of secrets and lies not an easy task.

It's only two days until the trail, Timmy is caught up in the passion and the moment that he forgot to share the news with Gina he discovered. Will the trial tear them apart before they truly find and experience the love, they both so in search of?

Will Gina find the freedom to love, to honor, to enjoy and smile, and to have peace in her heart and mind to commit to Timmy? Could she bring him the happiness he deserves and continues the process of moving forward after letting go of so much hurt?


Alexandria called it and went home, except Timmy, was not ready to let go of such a wonderful experience. He phoned ahead to put together a surprise for Gina. He called his favorite chef to put together food Gina would love and she prepared a romantic dessert for two. He wanted something different and something new to catch Gina attention.

Renee, Timmy chef prepared a Nutella Raspberry Martini, she decorated the glass so nice and placed around the rim of the glass crush raspberry that was shaped like small hearts. Renee used rich Nutella, fresh raspberries, Vodka, and Chambord and to set it off at the top with Hershey kisses.

He wanted to have the dinner at a special location, the beach in which they first meet. Timmy had Renee to set up a table on the beach with a beautiful centerpiece made out of Gina favorite flowers, Gardenia and the sweet fragrant they bring smelled heavenly.

When they both reach the beach, the table was decorated beautifully and the food looked good. Timmy hired a waitress to wait on them. Timmy pulled out Gina chair and she took a seat. When the waitress serves the food, Gina fed Timmy his food and when she served the dessert Gina's eyes lit up. She pours the Nutella Raspberry Martini into the astonishing decorated glass, it looked sensational. And when she tastes it, it was enjoyable from start to finish.

Timmy stared into Gina's eyes with so much passion in his eyes. He gave Gina two gifts, a ring that said I promise to love faithfully as Luther Vandross song played. He placed the promise ring on her left third finger. It was his way of outwardly expressing his love for Gina.


Then he gave her a diary specially built for her, she could speak into it and it would keep her most confident secret. As Gina speaks into the diary it would record and store her words into writing to view later. Timmy wants to give her a gift he hoped would assist her in her time of need, to vent if he wasn't with her.

It's 3:25 am and Timmy is still riding on high, the night was wonderful, they bond, eat, drink and talked for hours. They even walked around on the beach holding hands. It was a night to remember Timmy nor Gina wants the night to end, although they knew it had to.

Timmy dropped Gina off at home and he went home, he felt like the words to the song, "Don't Wanna Miss A Thing." He kept thinking, "I could stay awake just to hear you breathin'/ Watch you smile while you are sleeping / While you're far away and dreaming/ I could spend my life in this sweet surrender/ I could stay lost in this moment forever/ Well, every moment spent with you/ Is a moment I treasure."

Additional words to describe how Timmy was feeling, "I don't wanna close my eyes/ I don't wanna fall asleep/ 'cause I'd miss you, babe/ and I don't wanna miss a thing/ 'cause even when I dream of you/ the sweetest dream will never do/ I'd still miss you, babe, and I don't wanna miss a thing."

Timmy was so in love, but let's hope he's on top of his game because Gina trial is a day away. What will happen? Will Timmy be able to maintain and be able to convince the juror, Gina innocent?

The big question is what will happen next between Timmy and Gina? Can she truly trust and give her heart to a man? Alexandria has been giving her counseling for a little over a year and it seems to be working out well. Will she have a setback and hurt Timmy or can she maintain and move forward to love Timmy?

Stay tuned to learn more about Timmy and Gina relationship, the trial, a few secrets Alexandria herself are hiding and so much more in part 5 of, the Lies We Tell But The Secrets We Keep.
