“Jenna’s Closure” is the second book in the series, but can be read as a standalone book.
“Jenna’s Closure” is Book Two of the Dr. Jenna Harper Series, which picks up the pace with added suspense and continues where “Jenna’s Awakening,” Book One, left off.
Dr. Jenna Harper thought she had finally found happiness. She had permanently settled down with a secure position at the hospital. She had purchased her first home, which she was sharing with the love of her life. Who knew one leisurely trip to the beach could turn her life upside down?
Will Jenna’s new relationship be able to survive a brush with fame, forbidden temptations, and someone determined to tear it apart? Sometimes people change, but it isn’t always for the better. Jenna’s future depends on the events and actions of that one day, which will have a lasting impact on the rest of her life. It all comes down to one day and the chain of events that ensue. Not everyone gets to enjoy a fairytale ending.
Jenna sat up and slipped her shirt and pants back on. She hated telling the story behind her tattoo. It was a deeply personal and private story that she had kept a secret since the day she got it. She remembered the pain of having the ink permanently etched into her skin, but that was nothing compared to the emotions and history behind it. Jenna stood up and walked across to the couch. She sat down and covered her face with her hands. She spent years trying to deal with what had happened, but she could never forget.
Kris watched as Jenna buried her head in her hands. It looked like Jenna was trying to stall an explanation. Jenna took a deep breath in and exhaled slowly. Kris’ heart melted as Jenna looked up at her with tears in her eyes.
Kris wanted to wrap her arms around Jenna and tell her everything was going to be alright, but she was hurt also. Had Jenna been lying to her all this time about never loving another woman before? Why else would she have another woman’s name with a heart tattooed on her back?
Jenna didn’t know where to start. She reached out to grab Kris’ hand, but Kris pulled away from her grasp.
As much as it hurt Kris to see Jenna upset, Kris wanted answers. She stared into Jenna’s eyes and finally asked, “Who is Kim?”
Jenna winced as Kris said Kim’s name. She summoned up her strength and calmly put her hands on her lap. The sound of her heart pounding in her ears was deafening. It felt like the room was getting hotter, as her palms began to sweat. Jenna took another deep breath and answered with a crackling voice, “My sister.”
Kris was relieved to hear it wasn’t a long lost lover, but she was confused. Jenna had never mentioned having a sister before. In fact, she had never talked about her family much. She knew Jenna wasn’t that close to them, but as far as she knew Jenna didn’t have any brothers or sisters.
Jenna waited for Kris to say something, but instead Kris was silent. Jenna reached for Kris’ hand again; this time Kris didn’t pull away.
Kris sat on the edge of the coffee table across from Jenna and clasped her hands around Jenna’s. She could sense Jenna was about to tell her something painful. Kris was still trying to wrap her head around the fact that Jenna had a sister that she had never spoken of. A tear streaked down Jenna’s face and landed in a hot splash on Kris’ hand. Finally, Kris broke the silence. “You have a sister?”
Jenna’s lips trembled as she began to speak. “Her name was Kimberly, but I called her Kim. Everyone else in the family called her Kimmie.” Jenna paused as a smile formed on her face.
Kris squeezed Jenna’s hands beneath her own encouraging Jenna to continue. She watched as Jenna’s eyes lit up talking about her sister. Kris was still confused. Thoughts continued to race inside her head. Why did Jenna say her name WAS Kimberly? Kris’ heart sank. She realized something must have happened to Jenna’s sister. Kris tried to keep the story going. “Are you the younger sister or the older sister?”
“We were twins,” Jenna replied.
Kris couldn’t believe Jenna had never mentioned having a sister before, especially a twin. Kris still used the present tense when referring to Jenna’s sister, even though Jenna kept referring to her in the past tense. “Does she look like you?”
Jenna’s smile widened. “We were identical twins.”
Kris’ jaw dropped. “What? Are you kidding me?”
Jenna shook her head. “Even our parents had a difficult time telling us apart. Kim had a birthmark on her lower back and I didn’t.” Jenna ran her hand over the spot on her back where her tattoo was. “It was in the same spot where I put my tattoo.”
Kris leaned in towards Jenna. “Tell me more about her.”
“We were best friends and we were inseparable.” Jenna’s smile faded, as the painful memories overtook the happy ones. “When we were seven years old we were playing in an empty field near our house. We never felt we’d be in any danger there. Our town was so small and everyone knew each other.” Jenna bit her trembling lip, composed herself, and continued. “We were playing with one of those red rubber balls that bounce high like the ones we had at school. Kim had kicked it pretty far and it landed underneath the only holly bush in the entire field near a tall oak tree.”
Jenna’s heart pounded inside her chest. “I cursed as I ran to get the ball. I was so worried about the thorns puncturing our new ball.”
Kris could feel Jenna’s hands sweating beneath hers.
“Just as I crawled under the bush, I heard Kim scream. I flipped over and sat up quickly scratching my face pretty bad on the prickly leaves. Blood ran down my forehead and into my eyes. I called out to Kim, but she just continued to scream.”
Jenna looked up at Kris as the tears silently trickled down her ruddy cheeks. “Blood and tears covered my eyes like a veil, but I could see Kim being dragged into a dark-colored station wagon. She was kicking and screaming trying to get away, but there were two of them. I ran as fast as I could to help her, but they sped off leaving nothing but a cloud of dirt kicked up beneath their spinning tires.”
Jenna collapsed into a sobbing mess on Kris’ shoulder. Kris held Jenna tightly. She felt her own tears run down her cheeks. She had no idea Jenna had ever experienced such a tragedy. Her mind raced, as Jenna’s sobs slowed enough for Jenna to catch her breath. Kris reached for a tissue and handed it to Jenna. “I’m so sorry, Jenna, I had no idea.”
Jenna wiped the remaining tears from her eyes and cheeks. “No, I’m sorry. This day was perfect. I didn’t want it to end like this.”
Kris used her thumb to catch a tear that was about to drip off of Jenna’s trembling chin. “Why didn’t you tell me any of this before?”
Jenna sat back on the couch. “It’s not something I like to think about, much less talk about.”
Kris took a deep breath and gathered up the courage to ask Jenna, even though she wasn’t sure if she was prepared for the answer, “Did you ever find Kim?”
Jenna shook her head. “We held out hope for years, but there were never any leads. It was like she vanished into thin air. My parents don’t want to assume anything, so we never talk about it. Hell, we hardly talk at all.”
It was a lot of information for Kris to take in all at once. Jenna was so perfect. Kris couldn’t believe the painful secret she had been hiding. All Kris could do was wrap her arms around Jenna and hope there were no other secrets.
The following morning Jenna opened her eyes to find Kris lying in bed beside her. She had awakened in a panic hoping it hadn’t been just another dream. Jenna smiled as she felt contentment in her new bedroom with the woman she had fallen in love with. She was so happy everything had worked out, and she couldn’t wait to see what the future held for them together.
Kris was sleeping on her back with one arm resting on the pillow above her head. The plush white blanket and silky satin sheet draped across her body just below her waist. Kris’ tight abdomen was visible from beneath the light gray tank top that belonged to Jenna.
Kris’ eyes fluttered open to find Jenna watching her. She smiled and stretched her arms and legs as far as she could reach causing the covers to shift down further and her top to rise up higher. “Good morning.”
Jenna lowered herself and kissed Kris’ stomach. Her hands tickled Kris’ sides as they made their way underneath Kris’ shirt. She felt Kris’ nipples stiffen beneath her fingertips as Kris arched her back. “Good morning to you, beautiful.”
Kris let her eyes flutter before shutting them again. She melted under Jenna’s touch. “What are you doing?”
Jenna raised up lifting her shirt above her head in a slow tease before throwing it onto the floor. “I think you know exactly what I’m doing.”
Kris sat up and kissed Jenna’s neck as she pulled her closer. “I’m going to have my hands full with you.”
Jenna lifted Kris’ shirt and tossed it in the air. She took Kris’ head in her hands kissing her with a burning desire as she guided her back down to the bed. She felt a fever building up within her spurred by the now familiar sensation of having a woman’s body beneath her.
Kris ran her hands down Jenna’s back until she met the waistband of Jenna’s shorts. Her fingers didn’t linger long before slipping underneath until they met Jenna’s perfect ass. She squeezed a handful in each hand. “I told you I would have my hands full.”
Jenna smirked and placed her hands on Kris’ breasts. “Looks like you are quite the handful yourself.”
Kris pinched Jenna before flipping her over so that she was the one on top now. As she straddled Jenna’s thighs, she looked down and smiled. “You are so beautiful. How did I get so lucky?”
Jenna felt tears well up behind her eyes. It was the first time someone made her feel like the words were true. “I’m the lucky one.” She wanted to say more, but that’s all she could manage without getting emotional and spoiling the moment. They would have the rest of their lives together for her to show and tell Kris how she felt.
Kris lowered herself and whispered in Jenna’s ear, “We’ll have to agree to disagree.” She silenced Jenna with a steamy kiss before she had a chance to respond.
Jenna broke free and grabbed at Kris’ shorts. “You won’t be needing these for what I have in mind.”
Kris kissed Jenna’s neck before responding. “And just what is in that naughty mind of yours?”
Jenna slid her hand inside of Kris’ waistband and smiled up at Kris. “Well, it feels like you’re thinking the same thing.”
Kris spread her legs further apart. She leaned down and rested her head on Jenna’s shoulder. “Is that your professional diagnosis doctor?”
Jenna felt Kris’ hot breath against the side of her neck. It made the ache between her legs intensify. “Well, that isn’t my final diagnosis yet. I need a little more time to explore your symptoms.”
Kris raised her head and focused on Jenna’s face. Her heart raced. She could feel her pulse thumping hard against her neck like it was trying to escape. Jenna’s dilated pupils swept from her eyes to her lips.
Jenna slid her hands up to Kris’ dangling breasts. Her fingertips caressed Kris’ taut nipples. She couldn’t contain her burning passion as she kissed Kris with a feverish intensity. Jenna then let her hands meander back down to Kris’ shorts. She gripped and tugged at the waistband.
Kris stood up and slipped out of her shorts. She wasted no time relieving Jenna of her shorts also. Kris swallowed hard as she took in the sight of Jenna lying on the bed naked. The sound of her heartbeat pounded like thunder in her ears. Jenna’s look penetrated deep into her soul. She could feel the love swirling between the two of them like an invisible mist.
Jenna beckoned Kris back to the bed. “If you want my diagnosis you’re going to have to get a little closer.” She placed her hands behind her head and sized up Kris standing in front of her.
Kris climbed back onto the bed running her hands up Jenna’s smooth legs. “You are gorgeous.”
Jenna rolled her eyes, “Oh, please.”
Kris placed her fingers over Jenna’s lips while her tongue flicked hard against one of Jenna’s nipples. She pressed her thigh firm between Jenna’s legs with enough pressure she could feel how aroused Jenna was.
Jenna wiggled her waist further down to increase the pressure she felt. She turned her head to the side as she gripped the headboard behind her. Kris’ fingers still lingered over her lips, which she parted. She sucked hard on Kris’ fingers while she arched her back. Kris continued to lick and bite Jenna’s nipples with her warm tongue and mouth.
Jenna needed to release the tension that was consuming her senses. She guided Kris’ hand down to her pulsating clitoris. She writhed in pleasure underneath Kris’ expert touch.
Kris wasted no time. She knew how bad Jenna wanted it. She began with a feathery and slow touch. “Do you like this?”
“Yes. Oh, yes. Just like that.” Jenna pulled on the rails of the headboard so hard she thought they would break at any moment.
“What about this?” Kris increased the pressure but kept her caress gentle.
“Harder. Faster.” Jenna raised her hips to meet Kris’ fingers.
Kris dipped her finger down and brought it back up to Jenna’s clitoris before she quickened her pace. “Oh, you like that don’t you?” She laid down beside Jenna and watched as Jenna’s expression compelled her to finish what she had started.
Instead of answering her, Jenna kissed her hard as her entire body spasmed. Jenna wrapped her thighs tight around Kris’ hand and her kiss became lighter.
Kris broke away from the kiss when she felt Jenna’s hand against her. She pushed it away. “We have too much to do,” Kris declared.
Jenna ignored Kris and kissed her again. She felt Kris melt beneath her.
Kris let her body succumb to Jenna’s seductiveness. She pulled Jenna hard against her as her pelvis found Jenna’s thigh.
“Did someone change their mind?” Jenna questioned with a playful grin.
“You might be able to persuade me,” Kris confessed. She rolled to her other side with her back against Jenna.
Jenna kissed Kris’ shoulder and then her neck as she snuggled up behind her. Her fingers found Kris’ nipples, which had sprang back to attention. “I’ll try my best.”
Kris leaned against Jenna and moved her top leg back resting it over the top of Jenna’s legs. She twisted more until she was almost lying at a forty-five degree angle against Jenna giving Jenna plenty of room to explore.
Jenna’s fingers traced down Kris’ side until they reached the curve of her hip. She watched Kris’ eyes close in anticipation. She rested her chin on Kris’ shoulder and slid two fingers further down until she encountered the sweet honey she desired.
A throaty, “Mmmm,” escaped from Kris. She licked her lips in anticipation.
Jenna’s fingers penetrated Kris and she could feel the ridged walls embrace them. She curled her fingers and stroked Kris’ G-spot causing Kris to gasp. “Oh my…oh, mmmm,” Kris moaned.
Jenna welcomed the rhythm Kris had developed as Kris’ backside bumped against her recovering clitoris. From the look on Kris’ face, no one had ever touched her like this before. “Just relax and go with it.”
Kris’ eyes were now wide open and she tensed up. “But it feels like I have to….”
Jenna spoke before Kris could finish her sentence. “I know, but trust me. It will be okay, just relax.” She positioned her wrist so that it danced against Kris’ clitoris. She felt Kris’ muscles loosen up as her eyes closed again.
They found their rhythm again and Kris submerged herself in the ecstasy she was feeling. A slow crescendo of yearning replaced the weird sensation from before. The air around her felt icy compared to the fever coursing through her body. The heat had started in her groin and fanned out from there. The fire surged until it hit the tips of her toes and the top of her head causing a simultaneous reverberation of her core. Her scalp tingled and her toes curled.
Jenna felt Kris’ vaginal walls begin to spasm against her fingers. She didn’t slow or quicken her movements, but kept a steady pace.
And then it happened. Kris lost complete control. Her body contorted and twisted as all the heat gravitated back down to her pelvis at once and exploded before being extinguished by a tidal wave of moisture leaving her breathless.
She went limp and collapsed with her head propped against Jenna’s chest. She held Jenna’s hand firm against her until the pulsations stopped.
Jenna gave Kris a soft kiss on the lips. “I told you to trust me.”
Kris released the grip she had on Jenna’s hand. “What did you do?”
Jenna chuckled. “I found your G-spot.”
Kris’ eyes narrowed as she gave Jenna a puzzled look. “I thought that was a myth. I’ve never experienced anything like that before.”
“Not everybody has one, and it isn’t in the same place in those that do,” Jenna explained.
“Do you have one?” Kris inquired.
“I guess you’ll have to wait and see.” She brushed Kris’ hair back and kissed her forehead.
Kris shifted pulling Jenna down until Jenna was resting on top of her. “You are such a tease.”
Jenna rested her head on Kris’ chest and pulled the blankets up around them. She looked around the room and sighed. “I forgot about all of the unpacking I have to do.”
Kris tickled Jenna. “Are you joking? What about me? I still have to pack up my things at my place, move everything here, and then unpack too.”
Jenna peeked up at Kris and smiled. “Okay, you win. We’ll go over there and get started today.”
Kris stroked Jenna’s back. “Are there any more surprises planned or did you pretty much cover everything yesterday?”
Jenna sat up and let the covers slide down off her back and shoulders. She stretched her arms above her head and then rubbed her eyes. “No more surprises or secrets.” She looked around the room at all the boxes. “I need to start attacking some of these.”
Kris stood up and slipped back into her clothes before walking over to the suitcase she had packed from her house. She pulled together a quick outfit. “I’m going to take a shower after I brush my teeth.”
Jenna snatched her clothes from the floor and followed Kris to the bathroom. She pulled open the top drawer and pulled out a tube of toothpaste.
Kris laughed as she looked down at the toothpaste Jenna had placed on the counter. It was almost as flat as a sheet of paper and rolled up from the end to squeeze every last bit of toothpaste out. “You are a doctor with a good salary, but you insist on getting every ounce out of that tube.”
Jenna rolled the tube up further as she squeezed the toothpaste out onto her toothbrush and then Kris’. “Waste is waste.”
Kris kissed the back of Jenna’s neck. She was happy that she was finally getting to know more about Jenna and her quirky traits such as being thrifty.
After brushing her teeth and giving Kris a smack on the ass, Jenna walked back into the bedroom. It was a mess with boxes everywhere. Her mind flashed back to five months ago when Kris first showed her the house. Jenna sat down on the bed and ran her hand over the sheets. What had been only a fantasy before was now her reality. She was beginning the life she had dreamed of for herself, and she couldn’t think of anyone else she would rather be with.
Jenna had managed to get through a few boxes before Kris had finished her shower. She heard the bathroom door open and glanced over her shoulder to find Kris standing in the doorway wearing her robe. Jenna remembered purchasing it a few years ago. She had debated buying it because it was short and a little too sexy for someone single without anyone to wear it for. Looking at it wrapped around Kris, she was glad she did.
Jenna turned to face Kris. The thin light blue material clung to every curve of Kris’ body leaving nothing to the imagination. The silky trim reflected the soft morning sunlight peeking through the window behind Jenna. The fragrance of Kris’ shampoo carried by the steam escaping from the hot shower awakened Jenna’s senses.
Kris was oblivious to the way Jenna was looking at her. She winked at Jenna. “Your turn.”
Jenna strolled towards Kris. “Isn’t that my robe?” Jenna pulled on the strings tied around Kris’ waist.
Kris smiled and grabbed Jenna’s wrists. “Yes, it is.”
Jenna moved in closer until her lips brushed against Kris’ ear. This time she gave a more firm tug on the strings holding the robe together. “Can I have it back please?”
Kris nuzzled her lips against Jenna’s neck. “Right now?”
Jenna ran her fingers along the inside seam across Kris’ chest. Kris’ skin was still warm from the hot shower. She noticed the droplets of water curving a path down between Kris’ breasts. Her hands slid inside the robe and around to Kris’ back. She pulled Kris in tight and pressed her lips against hers.
Kris melted in Jenna’s arms. She didn’t resist Jenna’s caresses. She braced herself against the doorframe as Jenna left a trail of kisses down her neck. Kris moaned as Jenna’s tongue worked over her stiff nipples. She could spend the entire day making love to Jenna, but they both had a lot to get done today. Kris pushed Jenna away and covered herself back up with the robe. She kissed Jenna’s cheek. “We can continue this later, but right now we have to get moving.”
Jenna groaned and grabbed her clothes. She opted for a cold shower instead of a hot one like Kris had taken so she could cool down. Opening up to Kris about her true feelings intensified her passion. Thoughts of Kris consumed her mind. Now, she knew what it felt like to have Kris’ naked body pressed against her. Now, she knew what it was like to have Kris’ lips and tongue exploring every inch of her body. She knew what Kris liked and how her body quivered right before an orgasm.
After a quick shower, Jenna rushed downstairs to find Kris making breakfast. She was glad she had stopped by the store the day before. She came up behind Kris and put her arms around her. She kissed the back of Kris’ neck and drew her close.
Kris turned around still within the grip of Jenna’s arms. “Don’t you get started again.”
Jenna smiled. “I can’t help it. I’ve waited a long time to be able to do this.”
Kris placed her hands on top of Jenna’s and released them from her waist. “I know, but we’ll never get anything done if we keep this up. I promise, if you behave today, I’ll do whatever you want tonight.” She gave Jenna a quick kiss before pushing her away.
“I will hold you to that promise,” Jenna said as she backed away from Kris. She started unpacking a pile of boxes in the kitchen. She tried to conceal her mischievous grin, as she thought about what she wanted to do to Kris that night. Jenna felt like a little kid working towards a prize for doing chores. She couldn’t stop smiling as she continued to imagine all the ways she intended to play with her prize.
It took three months of Kris bribing Jenna for the two of them to finally get settled into their new home together. At times, Jenna was the one who had her hands full trying to keep Kris focused. They learned a lot about each other during that time. Kris realized Jenna was more frugal than most, despite her comfortable income. Jenna learned that Kris sometimes talked in her sleep. Kris concluded Jenna had a pretty good eye when it came to decorating and choosing colors, but lacked confidence coordinating outfits. Jenna discovered Kris was good at hiding how shy she was, although she had more friends than anyone Jenna had ever known.
They both knew what they had together was special. They loved each other and shared a deep attraction. They shared every moment they could together. At one point, Allie and the rest of Kris’ friends started to feel neglected, but they didn’t say anything. They all knew how much Kris needed Jenna and how long she had waited to have someone like Jenna in her life.
Kris had been in a lonely place in her life before meeting Jenna. She had compared every woman she met to the only other love of her life, Susie. In Kris’ mind, she had let Susie slip away. Other women she had allowed into her heart had been unfaithful. She had given up on dating and was trying to come to terms with growing old alone, but meeting Jenna in the emergency room last year changed everything. Who would’ve ever imagined a trip to the ER, would have changed her life forever. After spending time with Jenna, those feelings of desire and longing to be with someone again came rushing back to Kris.
Every now and then while Jenna was busy, Kris would stare at Jenna and her heart would begin to race just like it had when they first met.
By now, they had both began to settle into their routines. They told each other “I love you” every night and always fell asleep holding hands. They never left in the morning without a kiss goodbye; sometimes, more than a kiss if they had a little extra time. They were both busy during the week and sometimes had to work opposing weekends. They cherished their time off when the stars aligned and they were off at the same time.
They spent Friday nights catching up with their friends. Jenna and Kris enjoyed having people over for dinner and conversation. Saturdays were sometimes spent with friends especially if there was a festival or event nearby. They reserved Sundays for themselves to spend time together. They loved spending time with their friends, but they always looked forward to Sundays.
Today was one of those Sundays. Jenna and Kris had been out late the night before at one of the restaurants downtown celebrating Liz and Erin’s anniversary. Jenna awakened to Kris nibbling on her earlobe. Jenna yawned and stretched her arms above her head.
“Good morning sunshine,” Kris said.
Jenna let her arms relax and rest above her head. “Good morning beautiful.”
Kris rested her head on Jenna’s shoulder. “Let’s go to the beach today. The weather is going to be gorgeous.”
Jenna wrapped her arms around Kris and kissed the top of her head. “Sounds great to me. I’ve been dying to see you in that skimpy bikini Allie talked you into buying last week. You two should go shopping together more often.”
“You may change your mind when you see what she made me buy for you to wear.”
Jenna cleared her throat. “What? You never said anything about buying something for me.”
Kris smirked and jumped off the bed. “Sorry, I guess I forgot to mention that part of our shopping trip. You’ll see tonight. It will be a surprise. Well, a surprise for you and a treat for me.” She walked to the dresser.
Jenna watched Kris gathering up her clothes. She only had her panties on. The morning light highlighted her smooth skin and seductive curves.
Kris could feel Jenna staring at her. She turned her back towards Jenna covering her breasts and glanced back at Jenna over her shoulder trying to be modest. “What?” she asked.
Jenna walked across the room towards Kris. “You’re beautiful.” She wrapped her arms around Kris and kissed the back of her shoulder.
Kris gripped Jenna’s arms and gave them a squeeze. “I love you Jenna.”
Jenna squeezed Kris tighter. “I love you more.”
After a long shower together and a quick breakfast, they kissed Jax before walking out to the car. He wasn’t too happy about staying behind, but dogs aren’t allowed on the beach during the season. Summer was starting to wrap up and the weather had turned from the sweltering August heat to more mild with just a hint of fall in the evening air. There would be a lull in the tourists for a few weeks before the leaves changed and the fall color would bring the tourists back again.
Jenna and Kris threw their sunglasses on, rolled the windows down, and set off towards the coast. Kris stuck her hand out the window and played with the air rushing past it. “Can we take Smith Road? I know you don’t like to go that way, but I love looking at those huge houses facing the water.”
Jenna grimaced. “Okay. You know I can’t say no to you.” Smith Road only had a few houses that broke up the landscape, which was part of its appeal. Only the wealthiest residents could afford to live in that section. However, there was one bad spot along the way, almost a blind curve, that made Jenna uneasy. As long as everyone stayed in their lane, it was fine.
